Amdor City, Cal, Feb. 8.���Working
desperately to release 66 man, the entire day crew of the Bunker Hill mine
here, from threatened death in a
Shalt ln whlcn tbey are, entombed,
miners from all the surrounding
claims today hoped to free the imprisoned men by   noon.   So   far   as            	
known net a single miner is hur^. The j fr0llcked into "view,
men were rescued early ln the afternoon.
, It appears the accident happened in
this way. A skip, heavily loaded with
rock, was being hauled up tbe shaft.
The hauling cable parted and the
Skip and its contents shot down tho
track. Jumping from its regular
conrse, lt struck' the edge of the collar of the shaft, sninshiin; Umbers and
causing tho collar to collapse. The
debris filled up the shaft to a depth
ol from 40 to 60 feet, shutting oft the
escape of the men in tbe mine.
Cut off from the upper world, the
65 men came face to face with death
in the 200-foot level. Immediately an
alarm was sent ' out to adjoining
claims, and scores of miners rushed
to the rescue. Arriving on,,the scene,
they found that the men entombed
were in no serious discomfort, and
by a telephone, the wires of which
were still intact, the prisoners were
informed that rescue was at hand.
Within a few minutes gangs -tt
workmen began to toil to remove the
fall of earth in the toilhe, and by tne
time the wive3 and families of tho
entombed miners were on hand the
work pf reopening the shaft had begun. -It continued all night, one gang
of miners relieving another as fast as
the strain of thc furious toil began to
tell on the workers.
While the work of rescue was proceeding, communication between the
Imprisoned men and the upper air was
maintained. Wives aad mothers talk
ed freely wltb the members of their
families deep ln tbe mine, and later,
when hunger began to be felt by the
entombed men, coffee and solid food

It was not only the old shopl 11 per
and bis wonderful dolls that fell under
the spell of the fairy's 'wand at ths
ojera bouse last night. All grown
men and women, and little children,
were transported into a realm of
fairy fancy, Into a dainty klng.tom of
delightful dreams, so leal tbat if it
bad not been for the footlights they
might have thought tliemsel.es awake
In old Westminster. White papar
dolls, pink paper dolls, coy Dolly \ai-
dens and tripping Irish maids flitted
past wondering eyes. Brown bears
and   little   Jap
maidens, and fair garlanacd gins succeeded    iv. ch    other   in    fascinating
mazes of graceful dance. ��� And there
were song;?, too; gay songs, and sweet
songs, saucy songs aud choruses' fuil
of tun and frolic.   Anu   an tne time
the faces    seemed   familiar.    Surely
that was the little girl that lives next
door.   Hadn't one seen tiny Cupid before.   Dreams, dreams !    Yet it muat
have been they.    Perhaps they were
dreaming too, and all New Westminster had gone to fairyland    together.
Everybody was wide awake, when
tbe curtain  first went up, and  they
saw the old shopkeeper and bis dainty
little daughter, dusting their wonder
ful array of dolls.   Broken doll, Baby
doll, Dutch doll,   ani   Dolly    Dainty
were all there, and many others too,
standing ln postures ef real  dollish
stiffness.      In    came    the    "English
family,'* and the little daughter had to
buy a big doll, although father with
his eye-glass did not like to stump up
so mucb money as   the   oil   Ge man
wanted.    Then followed i.n American I

HALDANE AT BERLIN
Object of  Visit  Matter  of
Speculation.
FOREIGN OFFICE STATEMENT
Brttffh Press Calls for Action Regarding Sentence Passed on Lawyer
Stewart.
London, Feb. 8.-*-The foreign office
tonight made the following statement
with regard to the visit-of Mr. Hal
dane, secretary of war, to Berlin:
."Viscount Haldane, as president of
tbe royal commission on education,
bas gone to ��erlin to investigate
scientific education in German universities; but as he is well known to
many leading people in Germany, he
will doubtless have a general conver-
I sation , on the political situation and
the relation* between the two govern
ments. "-
berlin; Feb. 8.���Serious complications may follow the visit here ot
Lord Haldane, Britw.i minister of
war, and Admiral Lo i Charles Beres
ford. It is believed tbey intend' to
ask the kaiser to tl.scharge Bertrand
Stewart, convicted ot espionage, and
if .the kaiser grants such a request,
the act will be met Jay general pro-
teat.
While Lord Haldane has denied
that hli, visit to Berlin Is ti investigate personally the conviction Lni
imprisonment of toe alleged spy, t i.s
denial is accepted as a diplomatic
evasion. ��� German newspaDms emphasize the fact that befoie leaving London last night for Berlin, Lora Hai
dane, had a conference wita King
George.

the punishment adjudged him,    and

that he wll) take the opportunity of

Germany is inclined to listen to ove.-

oy far the largest of the kind in the

Dickens was \ery happy at   Oad'*
Hill, writes Stephen  Fiske, the  dramatic critic, the sole survivor of the
old Dickons   coterie.     When  a boy,
tramping with his father from   London to Rochester, he had stopped before tbe pretty house and exclaimed:
"There I shall live when I get to be a
man!" The fulfilment of this prophecy
seemed to Dickens like the happy ending to one of his own fairy tales. Besides, the place was
blm, for it bad been
of wbat used to called "the Dick-
en* school of writer*." Though be
never mentioned hi* Immortal characters, and turned tbe conversation Immediately lf Pecksniff, or Sam Weller
or Mr. Dombey happened to be quoted. I ventured to ask blm* if be enjoyed bis creations as mucb as his
readers did . "Certainly," he said. "I
always have' tbe first laugh and the
flrst cry." *
Having tlms broached  a forbidden
subject, Dickens was induced to show
holy ground   to j me the original manuscripts of. some
trodden   by tbe  of his novels and to explain his me-
feet of Shakespeare and was a resort j thod of composition.     Thfer�� were no
of   Falstaff, Polns,  Peto.  Pistol   and | interlineations, afterthoughts, changes
of expression, as in Balzac's manuscripts. If a word or phrase were altered the -change was made after, not

no trace* of these aids to imagination.
Gad's Hill was only an appanage of
the Inrge adjoining estate of tbe Earl
of Darnley, but it carried with tt the
title ol Lord of the Manor, of which
Dickens was secretly proud, and the
office of justice of the peace. But be
refused repeated Invitations to submerge himself, like Disraeli, in the
peerage. The title of which he was
most proud was "Chief," an abbreviation of "Editor-in-chief," and he was
thus addressed by all his Intimates.
English Country House.
He would not talk of his own creations, but he frequently referred to
those of other authors. On a visit to
Darnley Hall we noticed among the
family portraits, dating from the Crusaders, that of a golden-haired boy,
dressed In black velvet, and lo! a perfect duplicate of that boy, the likeness
reproduced after generations, walked
into the picture gallery to welcome
us. "What a story that would make
for Charles Reade!" exclaimed Dick-
room. On a slle door was the notice, j ens enthusiastically; "I shall tell him
"This leads to the kitchen; please
keep closed."
Placards, labels and signs were peculiarities of tbe house
Bardolph. In ,yie hall a painted panel
read: "ThiB ls Gadshill, of which Sir
John Falstaff said���," and the quotation from "Henry the Fourth" follows.
"If I could only have this old castle
to live In I would reflt part of lt at my
own expense and keep lt open td tbe
Vubllc on certain days or hours. It
would not cost so very much. I bave
mad,- the calculations. But this ls one
of ra/ dreams that will never come
true!"
Gad's   Hill.
While Dickens was lecturing in
America I obtained an Interview with
anotter great novelist. DiBraeli, then
Premier of Great Britain, and told
Sim this story. He replied promptly
and emphatically, "There is nothing
In the kingdom that Mr. Dickens cannot have ir he wants it. Tell him to
forward a formal request to be ap-
pointei custodian of Rochester Castle,
and he sball receive hls commission
from Her Gracious Majesty, who will
be as pleased as I am to acede to his
wiBhes."
Thus, within a year, the dream of
Rochester Castle would have been realized bad not Dickens died untimely.
Gad's Hill ia a small, stone parsonage, sweet with flowers. To the left
of the central hall���which was hung
with scenes painted by Stansfleld. for

right were   the   library and   billiard
about it.
Upon a miniature scale, but with
ample means, Dickens maintained at
in the sleep- Gad's Hill the estate of an old English country house. Miss Georgina
Hogarth, his sister-in-law, was his
housekeeper. He had an excellent
chef. The dinners were very elaborate, wltb seven courses anl a differ

Across the road, but within tho
manor of Gad's Hill and under the
jurisdiction of Dickens as landlord
and as justice of the peace, was a
country tavern, originally called "The
Jolly Plow Boy," but rechrlstened
"Sir John Falstaffs Inn." One night
there was a disturbance in the tavern
and we went over in a body, Dickens
leading, to investigate it. Among a
party of rough fellows was a man
with blood streaming down his face,
and he said that the landlord had
struck him with a pewter pot.
"Did you strike tills man?" asked
���Dickens sternly.
, "Veil, sir," replied the landlord,
"vether lil 'it tnat raon on the 'ed

"Well, sir," retorted Dickens Judicially, "whether you hit. that man on
the head with a pew fer'-poi it is not
for me to say; but the impression on
his head ls that you did!"
Mystery of Edwin Drood.
Dickens left no memoranda from
which the plot of his uncompleted
novel, "The Mystery of Edwlin
Drood" could be discovered. But, before writing this novel he told me of
a plot which he was considering.
Pointing to a building on the bank of
the Thames, he said: "That Ib our
Poor House. A well-to-do overseer put
bis father into that house, under an
assumed name. The old man revealed his identity to tbe board of managers, and they sent him back to hls
son, whom they threatened to prosecute for fraud. Angry, mean and
alarmed, the overseer put his father
into a bug-gy and drove Into the river,
here at this spot. His intention evidently was to drown bis father and
pretend there had been an accident.
But the father clung to him and both
were drowned. The overseer had
taken out insurance policies upon his
own life and that of his father and"
distant relations applied for the
money. Tbe Insurance company refused to pay. Litigation ensued and
the court decided that tbe policy upon the father was void because he had
been deliberately murdered but the
policy upon the son must be paid, because he had not intended to commit
suicide.   There aw hundreds of such

many eyes. But, so far as Dickens
was concerned, tbat chair had always
been vacant. It was for the accommodation of guests. He never used j

"Coke on Littleton " Dickens recalled the authors of all the dummies and
would roll on the floor with glee as
he toid about them.
His important writing was done in
a hirgo bedroom upstairs or in a
chalet on the opposite side of the
road, connected with Gad's Hill by a
tunnel cut tbrough the chalk soil, so
that Dickens might pass to and fro
without encountering the scores of
admirers who stopped before his
house dally to catch a glimpse of their
i.iol.
The chalet was presented to him by
Chanes Kechter. the famous French
actor, who saw It at the Paris Exposition, lt arrived at Gad's Hill in
sections, carefully numbered ' and
boxed. Dickens had the boxes strewn
carelessly over the lawn, and, when
Fechter arrived, asked him anxiously.
"Why have you sent me this lumber?"
"Clel!" cried Fechter, "but I have
been swindled! They told me- they
would send you a Swiss chalet to
write in!"
Always a Journalist.
I never knew any visitor to be admitted to this chalet, in it Dickens
was as secluded as at a hospice on
the Alps. There was no special view
to distract his attention from his
work���only the meadows, the woods
of Darnley Park and the changing
���ky. lie had four regular working
hours, and no day laborer was more
punctual. Hi* vacations were his lecturing tours.
In the centenary notices too little
has been said of the fact that Dickens was always a journalist; first as
a reporter on the True Sun, and the
Morhing Chronicle; then as editor of
the   Dally News   and   of   Household
Like a Retired Sea Captain.
One of the portraits published    resembled Dickens at the prime of life j
an.l the height of his fame.   He look-1

an alertness and vigor that suggested j gi(J

j suggestion   was   heightened   by   bis j

seemed to reflect the wonders of the

created duplicates and then decided'
to endow Charles instead of Frederick.
An Oral Sto.-y-Tellcr.
The world knows Dickens as a
writer, but as an qral story-teller he
was even more marvelous. He told
stories almost as constantly as Lincoln, or Scheherezade. but they had a
I mysterious    peculiarity.      Rememher
I them���repeat them -word for word���
and they had lost their magic. For
example, when we were a small family party at Gad's Hill, we would coax
Dickens to tell us the Btory of the
"Woman With the Red Shawl." He
had dreamed of a woman who wore a
red shawl, and at night, going home
after bis lecture, he had met the
Identical woman, wearing the same
red shawl as in his dream. There was
nothing very remarkable in such an
Incident; but, as Dickens told it, the
story interested, amused and thrilled
us, though we had heard It over and
over again.
He talked with such a quaint precision, such an undertone of fun, wit

jrepresedtod your early activities us a
juloneer in British Columbia?"

head waters of the Mackenzie.    For
throe years these two men, and I believe   they   havo  long   since    passed

There lives  were  saved
by friendly Indians, who picked them
up and gave them food and clothing.
Finding  of  Gold.
"They lived for a time with a tribe
whose hunting  grounds included the
Dease   Lake   district.      Dease,   while
hunting, became very thirsty one day.
Lying on his chest, he undertook to
drink out of a little brook.   The water
was clear as it bubbled over the little
pebbles. Dease, as he drank, obeerved
ln the  bottom of the   rivulet,  bright
colored stones.    He thrust his hand
ln and picked them up.   These 'stones'
were gold nuggets, each as large as
a bird's egg.   That was the discovery
of gold in the Cassiar. Because Dease
happened to drink out of that little
brook tbat emptied itself into the lake
that afterwards bore bis name, explorations began which resulted in   the
gold rush to Northern British Columbia, which resulted indirectly in later
years ln the wild stampede to Alaska
and the Yukon. j
"Because    a    lost   French-l'anadian I
sought to quench his thirst on a hot;
day  nearly  forty  years  ago,"  contln-1
ued    Mr. Wright, 'the    great   north '
country   was    made  to  give   up    Its
wealth and the penalty to man���well,

Seattle or glance over the files of the

the head office at Regina,
"I knew both Dease and Thibette,!

very interesting personalities. Shortly after Dease picked up the big nug-
feets lie met an Indian who Bnld lie
could show him to thc big salt chuck

HOW
LA FOLLETTE
AND ROOSEVELT STAND
Washington, Feb. 8.���The only
terms on which La Follette will accept Roosevelt as progressive Republican candidate were made public today in a personal statement by the
Wisconsin senator.   He said:
"I have been the standard-bearer of
principles, not of individuals. No possible change ln circumstances can alter the great issues for which I
fought and' will continue to flght. I
ean enlist In the ranks with no man
unless ne adopts publicly, in binding
terms, the true principles of progressive government by the people."
Unless some, bargain Is struck with
Col. Roosevelt, unless the former
president makes some .declaration of
principles to which Senator L*u Follette can subscribe, the latter posi
tively will enter the Chicago convention against all comers, and will flght
for the presidential nomination to tho
last ditch.
This. In brief, ls the situation tn the
Republican progressive campaign to-
<lay, following the practically general
demand of his chief supporters thar
La Follette quit the race.     [.
To clear the air so that iffective
opposition may be presented to President Taft and the stand pat element ot
the :>arty, several leading progressives today are trying to bring- about
correspondence between Roosevelt
iind Ui. Follette, hoping to Induce the
Colonel to declare himself and to map
<mt the general lines on which his future activities wlll be directed. They
hope thus to convince La Follette that
in their fundamental political beliefs
he and Roosevelt are on the same
ground. It Is planned also to use the
declaration���if Roosevelt wlll make it
���against President Taft
It ls freely admitted that should
Roosevelt not make some statement
of his position satisfactory to La Follette, the Wisconsin man will go Into
the Chicago convention to flght for
hls own nomination.
Practically the only big figure who
today stands loyal to La Follette Is
-Governor Hiram Johnson, of. California. In an interview with Roose-
velt, Johnson told the- ex-president
ihat he was pledged to La Follette,
jum will not transfer hls support iin
til rersonally released from his pledge
to the Wisconsin senator.

London's  Lord  Mayor ef th* Art tf
Aesculapius.   I
Sir Thomas Crosby'* election te' tb*
chief magistracy of the Olty of London���the flrst Lord Mayor of London
since the ' institution of -that office,
more than seven hundred years ago,
to hold a degree ot, Doctor of. Mpdt-
cine or Id' have been in practice' as a
physician ��� serves to call attention
to the fact that the present era is
the golden age tor the members of
his profession. Every country appears
to be bent upon overwhelming them
with honors and dignities of one kind
and another, and seems to be taking
it fgr granted that since they aie adept
in the art of relieving physical ailments they are qualified to cure ills
of every other conceivable character.
Universal satisfaction ha* been
manifested that the office of Lord
Mayor of London should have fallen
to the lot of a physician, and especial,
ly one of such professional eminence
ss Sir Thomas Crosby. The office has
often been held by men who, while
worthy in other respects, and success,
ful as wholesale and even retail merchants, were lamentably deficient ia
education, in breeding, and in savoir
faire.
The i opinion is expressed that th*
election of a physician ��� that is to
say, of a man of culture ��� will tend
to restore the former prestige of the
Lord Mayorship of London, and is
hailed with a- roval in the City, as
calculated to invest with new distinction tho ancient office of Chief
Magistrate of the metropolis.
Sir Thomas Crosby's name is a familiar one in the annals of the City oi
London. It was Sir John Crosby, the
builder of Crosby Hall, who wss
knighted'by Edward :IV. for- his s*r-.
vices hS-sheriff of Loodot*. Then there
was Brass Crosby, Lord Mayof" of
London in 1771, and who won lasting
fame, and, incidentally, also imprisonment in the Tower of London, by
his vigorous championship of the liberties of the press. Horace' Walpole
would be compelled to describe him
as in eve��y sense of the -word^'a 'tea-
fellow." .......      .

Hera Is something  that Duhk   Mc
Intoth will read with Interest.   O'Dlg
man Swat was once a mayor, and this
is what he says-about lt:
"I was once a mayor ln a city and
now when 1 look back to those  days
1 am convlnco.1 that I'd sooner make
my living as a professional Judge ^t
baby shows.   1 made the mistake that
many men make���thinking that   the
���city wus doing me an honor, when ln
reality it was making   me the goat.
Before my term was out my wife had
resigned her membership of the Ladies' Guild and had come to the con-j
.elusion that she Ltd married a crlm- j
Inal and an Imbecile and my children
Assumed a proud an t dignified silence
Whenever my name was   mentioned.
When 1 went Into ofllce I had ln my
mind to enforce the law.   I found that
the churches and saloons had not com-:
piled with  the   building  regulations,
nnd when 1 called their attention to it
they called tne ln turn an atheist and
a prohlbltitlonist.     I found that merchants were breaking the street traffic regulations, and when I attempted
to remedy that they called me an an-|
nrchlst ahd a dist ftrber, and said they I
wanted    a   business    administration.
When I tried to save mon��y on   the
city    Improvements    by   getting   the
work done by tho lowest   bidder the
labor unions called me unfair because
the work wasn't,dono by   day labor,
which- would have cost ti. great   deal
more.    When  a  iallnv>'l  wanted   tn
cross a street I was alternately calhd
a tool of the corrorptlon, an^ obstructor of tbo city's progresr,    If I fltir>-

Many of the jewels date back ceo.
turies and belonged to former Kings
and Queen* of England. They consist
of pendants., necklaces, hair ornaments, an<J ringq 0f great besuty.
Several of the greatest' treasures are
of the time of Henry VIII., and be-
longed to one or other of that monarch's queens.       .   ,,,
The late King took much interest
in the jewels. Previously they were
in various apsrtmerrts in the castle,
but he had them collected and de-
posited in the strong room which was
built when he came to the throne.
King George and Queen Mary hav.}
also Interested themselves in the' itw>
els, and by His Majesty's directions
the photographer on the Lord Chamberlain's staff at the castle has photo-
graphed every jewel. Th i catalogue
and the photograph* have been bound
and are kept in the royal, library.
In the gold pantry at Windsor Castle are some magnificent jeweled Communion cups, which have been used
by the Kings and Queens of England
for centuries and are still used by
the King and Queen when they take
the Sacrament. A rejent addition to
the collection of treasures in the royal
library is the shirt that Charles I.
wore at his execution.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
It was during my second year at tho
University ot M. tbat tha Btrange case
of what bai since beea called "Merl-
weatb'ei** ghost" occurred there. Tbi
tradition dates back some twenty years
and bas beeu talked about now and
again ever since. Wheae��er I go back
to the college the following dialogue
invariably takes place:
"Wbat was your clasat" I am asked.
"Nlnetyron**- ��#     .
"Let me see���that was about the
time of tbat great football game la
which Merlweather figured so strange-
lyTVasn'tltr
"I saw the game."
Tbat'a quite enough to collect a number of undergraduates wbo listen tn
rapt attention to my account of the
matter.
Tbe spirit of football was rampant
that year. It seemed that all we went
-to college for was to play football At
least tbe biggest and strongest men
-were ln for football, and tbe rest of
T11B1IB WAS A. BonSIKO CHREK.
��is were nbsorbed ln what absorbed
them. There wax tbe usual training
mul prnctlce. followed, or, rather. Intermingled, with a series of games,
iieglnnlng wltb our leant Important an-
Vigonlsts. to end wltb a match game
wltb I). college, at that time sporting
-the mont Important team outside of tbe
three largest American colleges.
Of course everything focused on tbls
final game. Oumnierton of "92 wns
-captain, and we had a celebrated ex-
Yale man for trainer. 1 think a good
���ileal of tbe interest was excited by
tbe enthusiasm of the captain, and
some of the fellows declared that If
bis team didn't win the game with li.
be wouldn't survive the defeat
Tbe Merlweather twins were ln college at the time. You've beard of
Tom Meriweatber. haven't you���tbe
big football player of tbat time? Well,
be wns tbe Meriweatber tbat figures
In this story, or his brother Bill, or
Tom's ghost; nobody could Und out
then, .and nobody seems to bare been
.able to find out since. Both boys were
big fellows. Kew could tell tbem apart
una the only physical difference between tbem was that Tom was a trifle
more massive than bis brother. Rut
there were lots of differences outside
of tbe physical composition of the
men. Tom wouldn't study and was
devoted to athletics.- Kill wouldn't
have anything to do wltb athletics and
was n "boner." .The captain wanted
both men on the team of '1)1. but he
-couldn't Induce Mill to leave Ills books
tor practice.* (lutiinierton would have
tnUe.i him on evei' during the Inst
-week without anv training, but Hill
-couldn't bo pci-Hiiailiii.
The rfiptnln  hnd no end of trouble
"with 'I'ora Merlwenther on nccount of
�� girl lie was InfntUHted with. Betty
Williams,   an   lueorrliflbl*   tllrt.   who-
|)ln.vetl witli the big fellow, as n seaman   would   play   with   it   harpooned
���whale.    When time ci]me for prnctlce
Tom would  be missing.    Where  wiis
be?    N'o body   knew   except   thnt   be
wasn't on hand.   He had taken n train
for the next station above, wbere Miss
Williams lived.    The worst of It was
that Hetty's best man was a B. man.
and she sympathized with the B.'s lu
the coming game.    Those of us who
I :now best believed tknt Betty, know-
ng Tom to be our malu relthnce. wasN
rylng   to   prevent   his   efficiency   by
ecpltig hlm away from practice.   She
van also always persuading him to
���at and drink what wus disallowed In
raining.
Rill   Merlweather  having  more  In-,
luetic* with his brother than any one
���Ise--the  affection   between   twins  Is
lotorlous-we tried to get BUI to keep
.'om awny from  Hetty till after the
big   game.     Bill   did   everything   he
roiWd In the mutter.    lie argued with
Tom.  scolded  blm.  told  him  Ihe girl
wns fooling him and If he didn't got
awny from her he wonld surely come tu
grief    He wouldn't Iind out what her
object wuh (111 tho game hud boon play-
:
ed and lost to ua. Tb* whole coUege'
woold turn against tbe maa wbo bad
been made a fool of and pat bis college Into tbe nine boles.
Tom would see It all as plain aa day
and promise not to do so any more,
but bis sight and hls resolution would.
notJast tweuty-.four boun. .-The mav
ter seemed to trouble his brother Hill
excessively. He got so at bur tbat
nobody ����red n\w*-i*to. him about
Tom's acttro 4��r-f*art>f receiving a
rebuff. Toward tbe last we all let
blm alone.
Five days before the gam* Uummer-
ton, seeing that Tom was half the
time absent from practice and constantly breaking tbe training rules,
made nn effort to Induce Bill to.take
his place on tbe team. But Bll) was
Inexorable, and tbe captain bad to give
up, patting ou a substitute, for tbere
wns no one, trained or untrained, who
could fill a gap made by tbe herculean
Tom Meriweatber. Tbe only question
remaining was whether Betty Williams would kelp Tom away from tbe
final gnme.
Every effort was made to provide for
tbis contingency both by keeping a
watcb on Toifa and having the next
best outside man. Watkins of 1)3.
ready to take his place In case Tom
waa filched away by the girl. Uf
course that meant defeat but there
must be some oue to till tbe gap.
I was one of tbe men appointed to
watcb Tom Meriweatber from the
time be got out of bed oo tbe morning
of tbe match game till the tight was
on. I arose at (I and was ln his room
by 7. Tbe bird, or, rather, tbe winged
monster, bad flown. I learned that he
had left the evening before, but no
one knew wbere be bad gone. When
I reported tbe fact to oummerton he
looked as If be had been struck by a
bullet "It's all up wltb us," be said.
"She's got him and will keep bim till
It's too late for blm to play tbe game."
I asked tbe captain lf we hadn't better
see BUI about lt, aud be said no. Bill
couldn't do anything; we'd better keep
away from blm; the matter only Irritated blm.
Gummerton notified Watkins that be
would probably have to play. The
managers discussed the mutter as to
what to do to eet bold of Tom Meriweatber. but nobody was willing tu go
to Betty Williams' bome nnd drag the
big fellow out. There were hopes tbat
he would turn up at tbe last moment
Tbe game was to begin at 3 o'clock,
but could be staved off till half past &
There was a train coming from Boon-
ton, ten miles up tbe rood, wbere tbe
Delilah lived, due at our station at a
quarter past 3. I. with two other fellows, wus at the statloo all. the.morning watching tbe arrival of every down
train. But at noon we gave It up and
went to dinner.
At 3 o'clock there was tbe usual roaring on the field, the crowds on the
side of eacb college shouting themselves hoarse before the game began.
Tom had not arrived. Watkins was
In harness and expecting to play. Oum-
merton was In despair. He didn't call
the game till 3i'��. As the m&i were
lining up tbe big man came over tbe
fields nnd on to the ground. Tbe singular part of it was tbat be bad bis
football clothes on. I say it was singular because he was supposed to have
come from tbe last train.
I tell you there was a rousing cheer
on the part of our fellows wbeu we
saw blm Gummerton gave a yell like
a crazy man. Meriweatber dropped In
bis place In the line, und tbe game began.
I remember wben Tom appeared I
looked about for his brother to see
how Tom's appearance would uffect
blm. 1 looked everywhere, but no BUI
Meriweatber could 1 see. 1 mention
thla partly because 1 thought It singular tbat' BUI should not attend Ibe
game und partly because ll bean on
tbe mystery. Inquiries later showed
that Bill wasn't ln bis room at th*
time tbe game was played. But I'm
getting ahead of my story.
I'm not going to describe the game,
for beyond the fact that It was won
almost exclusively by Meriweatber'*
work It has nothing to do wltb tbe
strange aspects of the case. Wbeu our
men wwe making their last count a
few minutes before tbe end of the last
half I saw a mun Jump the fence on
tbe otber aide of tbe gridiron and say
something to the crowd there which
produced n commotion, Then n shudder came over the assembled multitude.
The train due af 3:1.1 from up tbe
road had fallen tbrough a bridge tliree
miles from Hoonton. and more than
twenty people bad been killed.
Tbe ground wus cleured In an Instant, ninny of those present baking
for the scene of the accident. I went
to my room to get an overcoat, for I
i-.ad beeu chilled standing In the November wind. nnd. coming out Into the
dormitory hall, met n member of my
class, who. with n half scared look on
his face, said:
"What's this ubout Tom Merlweather lielng killed In the railroad .accident?"
."Tom Merlweather: Why. he has
Just won the game."
I never like to tell this part nf the
story, tor I expect always to be, guyed
when I do so. Nevertheless I'm going
to tell It ait 1 heard It and as'It was
universally believed nt Hie time.' It
see.��� that. BUI Merlweailier during
the m.irnlnr had gone up to Roonfoii to
try to bring Tom hack In time for the
name. Thej- were coming down on the
wrecked train: When the crnsti nine
Hill hnd got "'.71 .���rom the sent on which
hey bad lieeu Uttlng s'.de Uy side to
get n glass of water Tom was mashed
Into a Jelly     Bill wns unhurt.
Now, then, you've got nil I know
about It. Both brothers were on the
tniln when It wns wrecked. It Isn't
likely tbat Bin would leave his dead
l>r< fliei1 to play the game. And how
could Tom have played it, a corpse!"

Funny Fads of Playgoers.
"I get some strange people occasionally at my 'pigeon-hole.' " said
the official who is seated from ten tj
ten in the principal box office of h
London house of the drama. "Some
time ago a gentleman wearing a black
morning suit snd a black tie asked
for a seat in the fuuteuils. 'Evening
dress is essential, sir,' I said, eyeing
his 'rig-out.' 'Oh. is it?' he sneered.
'I'll see if I can oblige.' Thereupon
he unbuttoned his waistcoat all the
way down, exeept for the two bottom
buttons, tucked back and secured each i
side with a couple of pins, and thus
exposed the orthodox wide expanse
of shirt-front. The lapels of his cost
he turned back deeper and pinned,
und he re-tied his black tie into a
bow.
"As a 'free pass' man was handing
in his ticket once, another rusli.nl into the theatre, and-tapping the former
on the shoulder, whi��j>ercd, 'You'll
have to come home. Jack. I've got a
job Ior the nighii' The latter was
unquestionably a waiter, and tha for-
mer was undoubtedly wearing hi*
dress suit!
"I am pestered daily by inquisitive
persons and irrelevant questions,
wlule the lads and fancies of theatregoers are as varied as they ��re quaint.
Many men and women will book no
seats whatever than those they have
occupied periodically for years; hundreds won't have, even aa a gift, a
seat numbered thirteen; as many piore
won't have scats near the orchestra;
and others, principally men. stipulate
that tbeir places shall be ut the end
of a line and near the gangway."���

V^e Strength of an Indian Beetle.
- Recently a native servant brought
me a '.ongicorn bettie which he wus
carrying by its feelers, while the beetle was carrying a stone weighing
prettv nearly half a pound. But how
the leelers <*ould stand the strain
(the beetle was carried in this fashion for about 40 yards) and how the
legs could retain their hold of a heavy
stone which they could not encompass. I cannot conceive. The/length
of the beetle Was 2 1-4 inchefl its feelers 3 inches, and it weighed one-quarter ounce only, while the Miine weighed 6 1-4 ounce*, meusured 3 t-4 by 111-8
inches, ond was 7 inches in circumference.���Serampo'rc. B-ngsl. corre-

What Violin Notes Will Do.
A violin note may detonate an explosion, or, if long continued, may
weaken steel or disintegrate stone.
The vibrations of a violin are really
serious in their unseen, unbounded
force, and when they come with regularity they exercise on influence upon
structures of brick, iron or stone. It
follows, oi course, that there must
have.-been continuous playing for
years to cause the loosening of masonry or tn make iron brittle, but it will
do so in time.���Scientific American.

Il wns almost a capacity house, that
assembled to see "The Dolls' Shop"
at the Opera House last night, and
everything went off with the greatest
hiiccess. The booking for tonight has
also been excellent, but there are
some pood seats left. The lacrosse
boys disappointed the organizers and
would not. occupy the boxes, as had
been expected, but fortunately these
lmve all been re-sold. Anybody who
did not see tbe show last night, and
has not bought a ticket for tonight,
should do so at once. He will serve
a good cause, that of the Royal Columbian hospital, and at the same
time will get more than his money's
