gate. Peasants were allowed to pass

when a prosperous looking traveler or
anybody bound for Lipsk came along
a signal was given and tho man was
attacked by the bandits concealed in
the house. The victims were bound
and relieved of their cash and then
deposited ia the attic of the gate
keeper's house or the outbuilding.
The horses and vehicles of the travel
ers were assembled In the walled

After Secretary Hitchcock resigned
from the Interior department Cushman
made a speech in which he said.
"When the news of Mr. Hitchcock's
retirement was sent out there was not
a dry throat west of the Mississippi."
Telling of his going to congress he
said, "I crept noiselessly into the hall,

Now and then Cushman essayed to

one occasion he said. "A man who In

the committee on rules. It was in
that speech that Mr. Cushman gav

"I have behind me an honest but In

the committee on rules. That Is th
pressure In front And I tell you
frankly that between the two I have
become thinner than a canceled post
age stamp. That is what is the mat

One of Cushman's first speeches
made a hit in the house. In lamenting
the panic of 1R03 he said that his cor

hard times that they had to live o 1

"A great many of our citizens seem
