The remarkable coolness of a cop
tain London burglar assisted him to
escape. He broke into a laundry, and
while soiling the garments into a
largo clothes basket was surprised by
two- officers, who appeared at the
window opening into the yard.
The fellow worked so systematic
ally and quietly that the officials
thought that perhaps he was an em
ployee of tho establishment and they
therefore asked him why he worked
.at so lato an hour.
He replied: "I am getting the
-things, ready for the girls, who will
be up soon to do tho ironing. I get
14 shillings a week and have to work
awful hard to keep my place."
Ho then went to tho window, and
putting his arms on tho sill said
"My, but this is a disagreeable night
to bo out in I I would not like to be
in the place of you gentlemen. Won't
you come inside and tako some re
freshment? 1 will open tho wine
cellar .for you."
The officers Btarted for the kitchen
door in tho rear part of tho yard, and
tho thief mado for tho front door and
escaped, parrying with him every
thing ho could lay his bands on.
A Draft Indicator.
A draft indicator has been invent
ed which is intended to be placed at
either or both ends of a vessel for
the purpose of showing at a glance
to tho officer of the deck how much
water his vessel is drawing. It may
also be set at any desired point, bo
that when a certain draft is reached
a signal bell is automatically sound
ed and continues to ring until
stopped. This is effected through
electrical connections. Tho accurate
working of the instrument can never
to the slightest extent bo affected by
the riso or fall of waves alongside.

Chicago, JIls., Aug. -Congressman
F. Q. Newland, of Nevada, fol
lowed In an address reviewing congres

The committee on resolutions this af

nreamble. after reciting ttie antiquity
of bimetallism, reviews the history of
demonetlzttlon of silver iu 1873, which
led to the nresent distress by doubling
the purchuse power of gold.
The preamble further recites that tbe
mnnev of the country is inadequate for
the business of tho laud, and in order
to hold the balance level between the
debtor and creditor of the various
nations, the upply of currency must
increase wish Increased population ana
homness. The resolutions then say:
"There must be no compromise of tbla

that tbe unparalleled calamities which
now afll cttlie American people are not

in proof thereof call attention to the
fact that the same evil conditions now
prevail over all the gold-standard

Prominent Trio of Speakers at tho
Silver Convention.
CniCAao, Aug. 2. At tho Tuesday
afternoon session tbo committee ou
permanent organization reported for
permanent chairman Allen W. Thur
man of Ohio; for secretary Joseph
Hutchinson of Colorado, also that a
vlco president bo appointed from each
state, the selection to be mado by each
state delegation. When it wfb sug
gested that tbo roll bo called for tho ar
polntmont of tho committee on resolu
tions C. C. Thomas of Colorado urged
that each state name three members of
this commltteo, ono 'from each of the
three parties. Paul Vandervoot of Ne
braska objected. He hoped that party
differences wouldn't bo recognized in
this convention. Ex-Senator Regan of
Texas was called to the stage and said
in part:
"We aro here for the purpose of try
ing to relieve tho country from present
embarrassment and place it on a foot
ingof prosperity. We aro hero as blme
talllsts without referenco tonnydistino
tlon of political parties. The moment
wo Introduce a partisan question into
this convention we throw beforo It
matter whioh will causo strife and im
pair its work."
Tbe sense of tbo convention was bo
overwhelmingly with Regan that
Thomas withdrew his motion. Tine
commltteo appointed included tho fol
lowing, members: Colorado Ihomas
M. Patterson; Idaho G. V. Bryant;
Nevada H. F. Bartlue; Montana E
E. B. Matta: Washlngtou Patrick
The question of preparing an address
to the people aud a memorial to con
gress was referrod to the committee
ou resolution. Tho permanent chair
man, Mr.Thurman, wus escorted to his
seat amid great applause and dollveied
an address.
Mr. Tburctian said that should tbe
Sherman law bo repealed without any
substltuto in lieu thereof It would mean
the fiual destruction of silver as a meas
ure of value. The Issuo resolves itsell
down to a question whether tho paper
money of the country Is to bo Issuod bj
banking corporations upon Iho debts of
thepcoploor othor kinds of corporate
securities or whether It is to rest.upon
tho broad and safe basis of go d and sil
ver. Gold alonocortainly cannot atrord
a sufficient basis upon which the
amount of circulation medium required
by tho peoplo of this country can safely
"I am against irrcdotnnblo currency
in every way, but If t la to be decreed
that we must havo fiat monoy then 1
am in favor of lis being Issued by tho
government aud not by Individuals."
Thurman referred to tho catch penny
phrase continually used in high places,
of sound and stable curronoy, and said
he had no doubt that this phrase will
be used In Cleveland's mescago to con
gress. He wanted the president or tin
United States to tell tin people of tbe
country and members of congress what
he means by "sound and stable cuareu
cy." He wanted tbe president to tell
the people why bo thinks gold alone
will make that. Thurmau asked to
present one proposition that might be
considered with others that might
como beforo the convention. It Is first,
let our adversaries agree to tho tree
coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 or 10
tol. I perfer the former. If they do
tbls we wl I agree to tho unconditional
repeal of tbo Sherman law. Next,
amend the National banking laws.
The report of tho committee on cre
dentials showed forty-two states and
territories represented and 810 delegates
entitled to seats, The report of the
committee on rules provides that all
discussions shall be confined to the sub
ject of bimetallism and that nn dele
gates be allowed to speak more than
five minutes ou the same subject.
T. V. Puwderly, general master work
man of the Knights of Labor, addressed
the convention brlttlv. "Tweuty-flve

Moro walking exercise, although it
is invaluable, hardly fulfills tho idea
of perfect recreation. Sir James
Paget says "good, nclivo recreations",
ought to inoludo "uncertainties, won
ders and opportunities for tho oxor
ciso of ekillin something different
from tho regular work." Tho pres
ent writer is always longing for
cricket in tho summer and football
or hockoy in tho winter and spring,
but ho cannot find a man anywhere
abovo '10 years of ago who will agree
with him. Why should tho litorary
man, tho doctor and tho stock broker
or tho merchant not play cricket aft
er 45.
What is to become of Ids dinner
hour? is it asked. If a bettor lunch
eon wei'0 taken at midday and a
lighter dinner nt G In tho evening,
thero is no reason whatever why a
man of 45 and up. to 05 or 70 should
not bo in tho cricket fiold at 7.S0 and
play briskly until 0 or 0.30. An hour
and a half at crickot after alight
dinner would make middle aged men
so young that they would not know
themselves. Writers would write
twice as brilliantly, and business
men would bo clovoror and keener
by half.
As it is, tho avorago middlo aged
Englishman of tho professional and
businoss classes grows fatter, wheoz

and uninteresting every year of his
lifo. To got a laugh out of him Is
impossible, to crack a joko at his ox
ponso is to commit tho tinpardonablo

body has called him. His innocent
pleasures hnvo vanished with his
youth, and "ho has nothing now loft
to livo for but his respectability, his
solomn respectability, and his monoy
Tho contrast botwoon tho youthful
Englishman and his middlo aged pa
rent is Bomotimos startling. The for
mer is all lifo and fun ; tho latter is a
moving mountain of ponderosity and
fat. It is all for want of outdoor ex
erclso and recreation. Twenty-fivo
years ago tho solemn fathor of today
was tho fun loving son of a middlo
aged father. If anybody had thou
shown him in a prophotic mirror tho
figure ho would cut at tho end of a
quartor of a century, ho would havo
