ONE BT ONE.
One by one the sands are flowing, .
One by one the moments fall.
Some are coming, some are going.
Do not strive to grab them all.
One by one thy duties wait thee,
Let thy whole strength go to each ;
Let no future dreams elate thee.
Learn thou first what these can teach.
One by one bright gifts from Heaven,
Joys are sent thee here below,
Take them readily when given,
Beady too to let them go.
One by one thy griefs shall meet thee,
Do not fear an armed band.
One will fade as others greet thee,
Shadows passing through the land.
Do not look at life's dark sorrow,
See how small each moment's pain ;
God will help thee for to morrow
Every day begins again.
Every hour that fleets so slowly
Has its task to do or bear.. .
Luminous the crown and holy
If thou set each gem with care.
Do not linger with regretting
Or for passing hours despond.
Nor the daily toils forgetting
Look too eagerly beyond.
Hoars are golden links, God's tokens
Reaching Heaven but one by one;
Take them, lest the chain be broken
Ere thy pilgrimage be done.

a handkerchief. As the man extended
bis hand to the President, apparently
with the intention of shaking hands
with him. he fired a shot which enter

against the-breast bone. Another shot

bullet struck the sternum and glanced
off,- causing a slight flesh wound.
The second bullet perforated both walls
and has not yet been found. The bullet
probably is in the stomach. The
wounds are not necessarily fatal.
A Coward Attack.
It was a few moments after 4 P. M.,
while President McKinley was holding
a public reception in the great Temple
of Music on the Pan-American grounds
that the cowardly attack was made,
with what success time alone can tell.
Standing in the midst Of crowds
numbering thousands, surrounded by
every evidence of good will, pressed
by a motley throng of people, show
ered with expressions of love and loy
alty, besieged by multitudes all eager
to clasp his hand, and these surround
ings with the ever-recurring plaudits
of an admiring army of sight seers
ringing in his ears, the blow of the
assassin fell, and in an instant pleasure
gave way to pain.admirationto agony,
folly turned to fury and pandemonium
To-night a surging, swaying, eager
multitude throngs the city's main thor
oughfares, choking the streets in front
of the principal newspaper offices,
scanning the bulletins with anxious
eyes and groaning or cheering in turn
each succeeding announcement, as the
nature of the message sinks or buoys
President Well Guarded.
The President, though well guarded
by United States Secret Service detec
tives, was fully expo&sd to such an at
tack as occurred. He stood at-the
edge of the raised dais upon which
stands the great pipe organ at the east
side of the magnificent structure.
Throngs of people crowded in, to gaze
upon their executive, perchance to
clasp his hand, and then fight their
way out in the good natured mob that
every minute swelled and multiplied
at the points of ingress and egress to
the building. The President was in a
cheerful mood and was enjoying to
the full the hearty evidences of good
will which everywhere met his gaze.
Upon his right stood John G. Mil
burn, of Buffalo, President of the Pan
American Exposition, chatting with
the President and introducing to him
especially persona of note who ap
proached. Upon the President's left
stood Mr. Cortelyou.
V President Shot.
There waa an instant of almost
complete silence. The President stood
still, a look of hesitancy, almost of
bewilderment on his face. Then he
retreated a step; while a pallor began
to steal over his features. The multi
tude, only partially aware that some
thing serious had happened, paused in
surprise, while necks were craned and
all eyes turned as one toward the ros
trum where a great tragedy -was being
Then came a commotion. With the
leap of a tiger three men threw them
selves forward as with one impulse
and sprang toward the would-be as
sassin. Two of them were United
States Secret Service men who were
on the lookout and whose duty it was
to guard against just such a calamity
as had here befallen the Pres
dent and the nation.' The third
was a bystander, a nepro. who
had only an instant previously grasped
in his dusky palm the hand of the
President. As one man the trio hurl
ed themselves upon the President's
assailant. In a twinkling he was
borne to the ground, his weapon was
wrested from his eraso and stronc
arms pinioned him down.
Tnen the multitude which thronced
the edifice began to come to a realizing
sense or the awfulness of the scene of
which they had been unwilling wit
nesses. A murmer arose, snread and
swelled to a hum of confusion, then
grew to a oaoei or sounds and later to
a pandemonium of noises.
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 7. President
McKinley's condition . is extremely
grave. The crisis will probably come
within twenty-four hours. While his
physicians hold out hope and the de
velopments of , the day have been
somewhat encouraging, in that none

Eoisoning which they so much dread

with simitar wounds causes much
anxiety, but physicians shake their
beads gloomily when they speak of
the future. Although their distin
guished patient's condition has been
favorable throughout the day, they
do not desire to buoy the country up
with false hopes. Inflammation is
what they fear and at the first sign
in that direction the country mutt
steel itself for the. blow. For
the time being the bullet of the
assassin, which is still in the body, ia
a secondary consideration. While it
has not been absolutely located, they
all agree that after passing through
the abdominal cavity and perforating
both walls of the stomach, perhaps
tt i th flesTiv muscles of the
back, and, if necessity required, it
could be easily located with the uoeni
genray and extracted. They agree
that it is now of more importance
that the President should recover
from the shock of the first operation
than that the bullet should be re

'point will come within forty-eight
hours, possibly sooner. Indeed, one
of the attending pnysicians saiatu-uay
that if no signs ; of inflammation ap
peared before to-morrow night he
would consider the chances of ulti
mate recovery exceedingly good. Sev
eral of his colleagues, however, are
not so sanguine.
The President has been dozing
drowsily throughout the major portion
of the day. Two physicians and two
trained nurses are constantly at his

Telegram Sent From Memphis Signed
Fred NIeman to a Man in Buffalo.
ny Telegraph to the Morning Btar.
Memphis, Tenn. , Sept. 7. A Mem
phis telegraph operator of known
veracity is responsible for the state
ment that a telegram was sent through
a branch telegraph office in this city
signed "Fred Nieman," to a man at
the Temple of Music in Buffalo last
week. Neither reporters nor police
could locate any such person as hav
ing been in Memphis lately, but
if the telegraph records can be
obtained, it is thought a valuable
clew to the attempted assaasina
tion of President McKinley will be
found. From the boarding house
keeper, John Nowak, in Buffalo, it
was learned that Nieman tad only
been stopping at his place a few days
before the tragedy. According to
Nowak's statement the author of the
Memphis telegram would have had
ample time to have reached Buffalo
before the tragedy. The police are
working on the case. '

Venezuelan Fleet Bombarding

Colombia Claims Its Frontiers Are Well
Guarded New Invasions Announced
From Venezuela, Ecuador and
' Nicaragua-Battleship lows, f
B Telegraph to the Horntna star.
Washington, Sept. 7. An official
cable announcement that the Vene
zeulan fleet ia bombarding the Colom
bian town of Bio Hacha was received
at the Columbian legation to-day. The
dispatch came from Dr. Ricardo Be
cerra, formerly the Colombian min s
ter in Washington, and at present at
Willemstad, near the scene of opera
tions, looking after the interests of his
government. The text of the cable
gram is as follows:
"Willemstad, Curacoa, Sept. 7.
Venezuelan fleet is bombarding Bio
Hacha. . ; Beckbba."
The bombardment ia regarded by the
Colombian authorities as an unmis
takable and open act of war. Bio
Hacha is on the north coast of Colom
bia, a short distance from the Vene
zuelan . border, and is so lo
cated as to command the penin
sula west of the Gulf of Maracaibo.
Sovereignty over the peninsula has
long been in question, but the queen
regent of Spain awarded it to Colombia
as a result of an arbitration three years
ago, and this has been accepted by
both countries. The information reach
ing the Colombian legation shows that
the Venezuelans expected to make a
juncture at Bio Hacha with a consider
able force of Colombian rebels. But
this force, waa dispersed and the town
was strongly garrisoned by govern
ment troops. When the Venezuelan
ships arrived at the port they failed to
make the expected juncture, and in
stead found the Colombian troops in
possession. This, it is asserted, has
brought on the bombardment now re
ported. New Invasions.
Another cablegram received at the
Colombian legation to-day from tha
Minister of Foreign Affairs at Bogota
was as follows :
. "The guerillas in Colombia are rap
idly disappearing. Our frontiers are
well guarded and all is quiet there,
though new invasions are .announced
from Venezuela, Ecuador and Nicara
"Our attitude continues to be pacific
and strictly neutral. The invasion of

WoBld.be Assassin Says He Is an Anarch
IstDenles Having Any Confederate
Shows No Slga of Insanity.
. ' .v
By Telegraph to the Mornina Star.
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept 6.-Leon
Czologosz, the would-be assassin, has
signed a confession covering six
pages of foolscap, which states that
he is an anarchist and that he became
an enthusiastic member of that body
through the influence of Emma Gold
man, whose writings he had read and
whose lectures he had listened to.
He denies having any confederates,
and said he decided on the act three
days ago and bought the revolver
with which the act was committed m
Bufifalo. He has seven brothers and
aistesa in Cleveland and the Cleveland
directory ias the names of about that
number living on Hosmer street and
Ackland avenue, which adjoin. Some
of them are butchers and others in
different trades. He is now detained
at police headquarters pending the
results of the President's injuries.
Czologosz does not appear in the least
uneasy or penitent for his action.
He says he was induced by his atten
tion to Emma Goldman's lectures
and writings to decide that the pres
ent form of government in this coun
try was all wrong, and he thought
the best way to end it was by killing
the President He shows no sign of
insanity, but is very reticent about
much of his career. While acknowl
edging himself an anarchist he does
not state to what branch of the organ
ization he belongs.

The Readinar Cor.
Reading aloud is recommended by
physicians as a benefit to persons af
fected with any chest complaint. The
recommendation Is made because in all
cases of lung trouble it Is Important
for the sufferer to Indulge in exercise
by which the chest is in part filled by
and emptied of air, for the exercise is
strengthening to the throaty lungs and
muscles of" the chest.
Beading aloud can be practiced by
all and besides being a curative act
can be a pleasure and profit to both
reader and hearers. In this treatment
It'is recommended that an overdose of
medicine be avoided, that the reading
be deliberate, without being allowed
to drag, that the enunciation be clear,
the body be held in an easy, unstrain
ed upright position, so that the chest
will have free play, and that the
breathing be natural and as deep as
possible without undue effort.

by her lover, and the attempts on the
part of her male relatives to prevent
her husband from carrying her away is
