Paul , the erstwhile nromoter of railroad enterprises , commenced suit in the district court yesterday In the name of the Iowa Construction Company ngalnst the Chicago & Northwestern Railway Company , in which he asks for damages In the sum of $17,000 for alleged trespass. Paul sets up In his. petition that the Iowa Construction company , of which corpora tion ho was the leading spirit , owns in fee simple two government lots in the north west part of the city lying immediately west of the Northwestern's right-of-way. As a basis for his demand for $17,000 of the railway company's money he alleges that It has entered upon this land and taken possession of a strip 100 feet wide on which It is building an embankment and making excavations for the purpose of laying a track. This Paul objects to , as he claims the railroad company has not paid or se cured to him any compensation for the laud thus occupied nor has it commenced condemnation proceedings. As a further ground for damages Paul alleges that the building of the embank ment on the property has caused part of the land to be flooded and that the same has worked and is continuing to work an Irreparable Injury to him. In addition to the demand for $17,000 for the alleged trespass Paul asks that the railway company be restrained from con tinuing to trespass and from continuing with the building ot the embankment or from constructing , using or operating over or across said land a railway. On the showing made by Paul's attorneys Judge Smith granted a temporary Injunc tion , but no time was set for hearing the application for a permanent restraining or der.

Fisher , the old soldier arrested In Omaha while trying to dispose of a set of single harness which be had stolen on this sideof the river , was committed to the county Jail for thirty days yesterday by Justice Vlcn.

Ho at once notified the police , who In turn notified Coroner Treynor. When an attempt was made to lift the body the head rolled away from the trunk , owing to the decom posed condition of the remains. It was Im- poalblc to discern whether the remains were the ! < c of a white man or a negro , but Un dertaker Irtinkley , who took charge of the body , was inclined to believe they were that of a colored man.

MyMrry , The origin of the flro Tuesday evening , which destroyed the Plattner barn on Broadway and consumed Expressman Jacoby's horses and wagons , Is still a mystery. Chief Bates of the fire department Is Inclined to believe that the hay In the loft became heated and took fire , as the flames spread so rapidly that the Interior was a mass ot seething flames within a couple of minutes. Although Jacoby car ried insurance of $500 on his stock his losa Is nearly double that amount. No estimate can be placed on the loss sustained by Plattner , as the building was a ramshackle affair. All that remains ot the old land mark are the front walls , which were re modeled a few years ago. Chief Bates nays the flro last Sunday morning at the Mcldrum residence on Harrison street was undoubt edly of Incendiary origin , but to whom to lay the blame , ho says , Is a question that he Is not prepared to answer at present. Ho Is still Investigating. M5W I.KHISI.ATION IS PROPOSED. lorrn State liar Afinoolntlon In Annual Convention nt Slonx City. SIOUX CITY. July 12.

DES MOINES , July 12. ( Special Tele gram. ) The State Board of Control of Iowa today determined to Inaugurate the grade system In the state penitentiaries. Esti mates are toeing made now for the goods for the different uniforms. The grade sys tem contemplates the classification ot the convicts with reference to their behavior while In the prisons. A system of mark ings Is devised and a careful record kept of each convict. The prison stripes will give way to different colored uniforms , gray and brown being predominant. The higher class of convicts has the least dlatlnctlvo uniform. It Is believed toy this method the very best results of reformation arc secured. The prison stripes so disgrace the wearer that they nro believed by penologtsts to create despair and humilia tion which do not arwlst In reformation. But by being given a definite object to work for and somewhat of a reward for good behavior the convicts are given an Incentive to lead better lives. Besides the less conspicuous and disgraceful uniforms the system Includes privileges which nro given convicts for certain excellence In conduct. H Is thought the system can be Inaugurated by October 1.

Ministers are not often given to wit , but when it comes to quoting bible passages In a nerdy tournament they generally come out on top , The minister -was preaching a course of sermons in which not only his own people , -but outsiders were interested , re lates the Chicago Chronicle , and as the subjects 'were announced In advance through , the columns of the dally papers the people who attended the services knew what they were Going to hear In the way of a dis course each night they attended , But one evening the minister had a scvero cold and It was almost Impossible for him to get through the regular service.

The friend whom 1 quoted at fomt length the other day on life Insurance , } n writer In the Boston Transcript , hits laid down a great principle to me. It In this : Never apologize. "If , " ho says , "thcro is anything that Is absolutely futile It Is apology. Instead of making the person to whom It was tendered feel any better con cerning the oversight or piece of thought lessness on account of which It Is given , thi > apology simply Intensifies his perception ot that oversight nnd makes him feel all the worse about It. A few days ago 1 took lunoheon with a man who said ho was feelIng - Ing Tery badly. He had borrowed , upon point of honor , from a dear friend , the only copy In existence ot a treasured historic manuscript. Ho had promised to restore It straightway. H was the old story. A serv ant. In quest of paper to start a kitchen fire , got hold of the precious old manu script and burned it up. What should my friend do ? 1 advised him , from my experi ence In such things , to nvold making any apology , to say nothing whatever to his friend about the matter , and when the sub ject should finally bo raised , to feign Indlf- trenco and almost surprise concerning It. In this way the lender would think It must bo that ho had not made clear the necessity of returning the manuscript or failed to In dicate sufficiently Ito value. Perhaps he would corno to think himself that It was of no value. At all events , ho could not get very angry with a man who appeared hardly to realize that ho had committed any offense whatever. This advice I bellovo was sound. "My attention , " ho goes on , "was first directed to the futility of apology several years ngo. I was a northern man In a southern city , new to southern conditions nnd Inexperienced In dealing with 'the col ored brother. ' One afternoon a Georgian friend urged me to go somewhere with him for several houi-p. I replied that the one objection to accepting wan the fact that I had asked my colored messenger to meet mo at a certain place nt 1 o'clock and to wait thcro until I came , in case I should 'be ' late. It 'Would ' be pretty hard to keep him waiting until 4 In the afternoon. 'I will tell you , ' replied my friend , 'how that can be made all right. When you go around at 4 o'clock , you approach him with the air ot perfect self-satisfaction. If any thing Is said , give him the notion that It Is just his business to wait three hours for you , and that you compelled It as a mat ter of course. If to the least degree you apologize to him , you have ruined him as a messenger and spoiled him as a citizen. He never will do anything for you again after an apology. ' "A further acquaintance with the myste rious ways of the colored brother led me to believe that there 'was some small amount of. wisdom in this advice , or at least that It rested upon some principles of Ethiopian human nature. I then began to wonder it the same thing were not true ot the white man. I believe It la. An apology spoils everybody , and Injures the reputation of the man making it. Therefore my rule In life is to do somewhere near as well as I can , and then in contact with my fellow-man to as sume that I have done exactly right , nnd to affect surprise and Indifference In the ex treme nt any suggestion that things are ever otherwise. The next time Lord Chesterfield writes out his rules of conduct ho should append as one of them , never apologize. Do things meet for apology as seldom as possi ble , but , having done them , do not apologize for them. That Is self-lncrlmlnatlon , and it is a prlnclplo of old English common law that no ono should bo obliged to testify against himself. " I commend this reasoning to all thinking uersons. I. have , myself , anoloclzed a creat many times , but I can not truly say that an apology has ever really helped my case with the person who wns offended. Of courna It patched' the matter up , .but did that do any good ? It Is conceivable that giving an apol ogy may be better than taking a licking ; but may not A's failure /.pologlzo to B for a slight or an affront 'be construed by B as proof that A Is confident that he can lick B , and consequently no apology Is needed and no attempt at a licking likely ? These things should bo pondered carefully. HOW TUB LAST MAX MAV 11II3. Fnlcn Hint Mny OverlnUe Hie Survivor of HIP Ilninuii Itnce. Astronomers tell us , says London An swers , that the day must come when the earth will , like the moon , wheel through the heavens a dead and barren ball ot mat ter airless , waterless , lifeless. But long , long before that time man will bo extinct , will'have disappeared so utterly that not so much as the bleached skeleton of n human being will be visible on all the millions of square miles ot the surface of this planet. Unless by some huge nnd universal cata clysm the whole race Is swept at once into eternity It Is but reasonable to suppose that man , like any other race of animals , will disappear'slowly and that eventually ther& will bo but a single human being left some old , old man , gray .headed and bearded , , nnd left to wander alone In a solitude that may bojmuglned but not described. How will ho die , this last relic of the teeming millions that once transformed the faeo nf the globe and ruled undisputed master of every living tiling ? There are many fates that may be fall him. Ho may go mad with the horror of loneliness and himself end his own mis erable existence. He may bo eaten by the vast reptiles or glnnt Insects which will then probably Infest the solitudes. But Ills fate muybo far weirder and more dreadful. Scientists say that ns we burn the coal nnd timber we nro still so richly supplied with we let loose Into the atmosphere an ever In creasing volume of carbonic acid gas. Much of this Is taken up by plants , but not all. It must Increase and eventually poison the breathable air , filling the valleys nnd mount ing slowly to the hilltops , , whcro the last remains of unlnial life are striving for ex istence. The last man will climb higher and higher , but eventually the suffocating invisible fluid will reach and drown him. Again , It Is said that the earth as it gCuS older , Is cracking like dry mud. These cracks will Increase until at lost they will let the waters of the ocean and rivers sink Into the fiery center of the globe. Then will occur an explosion so terrible ns may startle the Inhabitants of neighboring worlds. The last man In thla case will probably bo some Arctic explorer or Eskimo , whom the vast plains of Ice around will save from In- fltant death nnJ leave to grill n few mo ments till the Ice continents ar swallowed by rcdhot gases and steam. Suppcso these earth cracks develop more slowly , they may suck away the water without devastating ex plosions. Then the last man's fate will bo the worst dcscrlbablc. Ho will die of thirst. The : eno of his death will probably bo the great valley In the bed of the Atlantic ocean , off the Brazilian coast , halfway be tween Rio Janeiro and the capo , where now six miles of green water Ho between the steamer's keel and the abysmal nil mo be- iicatb. There , hopelessly digging In the ever-drying mud. lie must perish and leave his bones to parch on a waterless planet. The Antarctic polar Ice cap has been grow ing thicker and heavier for uncounted ages. Tbo distance from the south pole to the edge of this Ice cap is 1,400 miles. The Ice rises steadily from the eJge to the center. At that center It cannot be less than twelve mllrg In thickness twice as thick as Mount Everest is high. Suppose it splits , Imagine the gigantic mass ot water and Ice that will come sweeping up north over the oceans and continents of the earth. Where , then , will the lait man breathe hlo final gasp ? High up in the snows of some great range ho will perish miserably of rold and starvation , looking down on a huge shallow sea beneath whose tossing waters will lie the whole of the races of the world. Or , last , and per haps dreariest fate of all , the human race may outlive other mammals and last until I thf nun. an somn day It must , grown dull and ; rold , and vegetation dies from the chilled cnrth The miserable remnant of earth'n j pcoplo mu t then slowly die out after agtn < nf nn fxlslnncc to which that of the Eskimo of todny In a paradise. rowiiii or WATHII. Hole Horn ! In a lllnfT l > r n .Mrrnin I'roni n llonnr , A llttln group of solid citizens was standIng - Ing on Baronno utrcct watching n cleaning gang at work with the hose- , relates the New Orleans Times. "That reminds mo of old da > n In Cali fornia , " said ono of ( ho party as the stream veered slightly nnd sliced off the corner of a pllo of dirt. "I never realized how much force could bo developed by a jet of water , " he continued , "until I tried hydraulic min ing. It was in 1870 , up on the Sacramento river. They had brought a stream down the Sierra Nevada mountains In n big 'flume' that ended in a length of wire- wrapped hose and a six-foot nozzle with arms on the sides for a couple of men to take hold of. "They played the stream against a bis bluff directly opposite and It bored out the solid packed foundation like living flro eat ing into tender. For a dozen feet from the nozzle the water seemed like a hard blue bar and thcro was something strange nnd murderous looking In the way it drove straight out that It made my flesh creep to watch it. Several laborers had been acci dentally struck by the stream and In each case the man was killed as suddenly as If hit by a cannon ball. "I remember on one occasion some rival claimants came down from Shnsta nnd took possession of a cabin not far from the end of the flume line. Our boss , who was n big Irishman named Murphy , told us to turn the stream on the place , nnd as wo were nil spoiling for a row we lost no time In obey ing. 1 never saw such a demolition In my life. The shanty How seven ways for Sun day and ono of the fellows inside was pitched bodily through the air nnd landed Into the river. The distance wan t great that nobody wns hurt , nnd after that our gang was known as Murphy's light artil lery. Mark Twain draws a very vivid pic ture ot hydraulic mining In 'Roughing If and from personal experience I can assure you ho hasn't embroidered the facts In the least. " VAI.UB 01SMAM , 1 * VI3XTIOXS. Fortune * Made from Torn anil Other Trlllrn. The Inventor of the roller skate , says the British Patent Record , made 200,000. The gimlet-pointed screw has been responsible for more wealth than most silver mines. Ono hundred thousand pounds in first-class securities would not represent the fortune made by the man who first thought of copper tips to children's shoos. Even a little thing like the common needle threader is worth 2,000 a year to Its owner , while the "return ball" n wooden ball fastened on a piece ot elastic yields 10,000 per minum ; this is only ono of many profitable toys. Wo may mention the "Dancing Jim Crow , " which produces 15,000 a year ; the "Wheel of Life , " worth In all fully 100,000 ; ihe walking figure , "John Gllpln , " nnd the "Chameleon top. " The safe of the last- named toy has been enormous and the profits also enormous. Indeed , the "Chameleon top , " ns a profitable Invention , has probably excelled any one discovery in modern times , however valuable and Im portant this may have been. As far as profits are concerned , the Invention of toys pays better than those ot anything else. Money has been , and always CDJI be , made more easily out of simple patented Inven tions than out of any investment or occupa tion. tion.ureat ureat discoveries tano so many years ana cost so much to perfect that the fortunes made from them are small compared with those wo have Instanced. The man who dis covered that a candre. if tapered nt the end , would stick firmly into Its Rocket patented the Idea and afterward founded the largest candle factory In the world. Might not any ono have thought ot this Blmplc device ? Out of the millions who own um brellas , how many realize that these un fortunately Indispensable articles represent wealth untoftl ? The frame , the cover , the materials used , all are the result ot number less experiments and patents. An umbrella years ago used to be made of whalebone and gingham. It weighed as much ns a port manteau. Alpaca was substituted for Ring- ham. then allk for alpaca. Each change meant a fortune to the inventor who brought It about. For a long time the ribs were solid ; then Samuel Fox arose , took the um- brcria and cut grooves along its ribs. He designed the "patent paragon frame , " nnd lived to see his Invention used universally. At the death of Samuel Fox his heir bcnefltted to the extent of 179,000 the residue of a total profit of at least half a million. NK Tin Plnte AVnce Sc'nle. CHICAGO , July 12.
