hi in at the start: "You are incom
plete. I have made that other part
of von. lint I do not remember
where I put it. You will have to
limit for it."
I have met many men who went

President Roosevelt an Accident
ia, liian. H I'afkliurM. In Sun.Uy Srrnn.it.
If ever there was such a thine as
mi uccident the promotion of the
Chief Executive to his iiiciimlM-iicy
of the ollice is an instance of it.
Aeeidentallv made Vice I'rosi
dent by the enmity of a jealous
eompatriot, w hat jealousy initiated
the cnuy malignity of n t'zolgos
coosutuatcd, and the thing was
done. He happened lo Is- elose to
the pool Ilcthcsda at t lie moving of
the waters and the irresponsible
I'ole rolled linn in. There was a
providence in it, doubtless, but
only in the sense in which there is
a providence in all accidents.
The Exploding lioy,
hutt.Uy SrtiiM.1 Tour.
A father or mother is an en
gitn-cr. The Isiy is boiler hikI en
gine all in one. Shut off the steam
lit all points of outlet, and some
thing has pit to give way. Of
course nolssly wants either to
waste slt-utu, by letting it ofl' into
the air, or to have an explosion.
The other thing to do is to turn it
into the cylinders, mid let it run
the. engine. Henry Ward llcccher
tells how his lather used to pi
a outline; w ith his boys. They
dimls-d the trees, and shtsik down
the chestnuts, and then picked the
ground clean of tlieiu. Mr. llcccher
nays: "Thus we spent our forces,
mid I was a better Isiy for a week
after one of those nulling expedi
tions. The devil did not tempt
me half so much then as at other
times. Hut w hen, for any cause, 1
was shut up, no that 1 could not go
out, and when I moped, the devil
got big in me, and I went into ub
normal mischiefs, not mischiefs of
very great magnitude, but mis
chiefs just large enough to procure
me a whipping, and make mc un
happy." Now, whipping an ex
ploded boiler is a doubtful way of
repairing it. All engineer who
gives no vent to the gathering
steam is liable to lie whipped by
the law, if not by his conscience.
Excluding the Ideal.
SumlaT Hrliiitil Tlmrrt.
It is wonderful how jiersisteutly
and how stubbornly many persons
will cling to an ideal less life. The
worst oftVuse you ran coin in it is to
offer to clean their sky -w indow s for
them. They seem positively to
love darkness rather than light.
1 igniics is not offered to us by his
tory as being exactly a model of
manners to royalty, tor, when asK
ed by a kingly Alexander what
gift he would receive of him, he
only replied, "That you may get
out of my sunlight." Hut when
you have to choose between even
Alexander and sunlight, there is
noincthiiig to be said for the latter.
In the rase Is-fore us there is no
such excuse. The mind seems to
say: Leave me to a life from which
the bright firmament uf the ideal is
excluded. Let me "walk on still
ill darkness," whatever light In
found alsmt inc. tio they are like
1'lato's men in the cave. Willi
faces toward tho gloom, they are
conscious only of the reflected
shadows cast by the glories of a
world of life which they never see.
Their stolid idcredulity will quench
the torch of your enthusiasm before
it will be kindled by it. In answer
to the cry of the discipline, "We
have seen the Lord," they will lay
down conditions before their entry
into the promised land of the ideal,
into the world of spiritual reality,
Into the realization of the unseen,
which destroy its potency to the
heart, "Kxcept I see, I will not

these days is tremendous. Almost
every man, woman and child in the
country seems to have a grievance
against the department now that
the game is oh-ii. One woman has
lost in the mails and another a
black leather licit. One man in
the country objects to the way his
Itostmastcr hands It 1 lit his mail.
and another w ants the ollice moved
to li is stoic right away or he will
vole for Cleveland.
The most pathetic appeal of all
came yesterday from a New York
reprise, itative in congress, who is
dailv threatened hv an Italian in
his district, who has lost eltHi in
the mails. The money has been
tn.ced and found, but in the pro
cess of red tavc it will Is- another
cck U'fore the Italian can get it.
He refuses to understand led tape
and meanwhile the reprcsentatixe
is iu constant fear of sudden death.

J, 1. Kerr, who has returned
from a inci ting of the penitentiary
directum at Haleigh, says the di
rectors witnessed 1111 unusual sight
at the prison. Young It ley of
K.iyclleville, who killed a hotel
clerk ut that place, had just la-en
taken to prison when Die visitors
were making their regular inspec
tion. The prisoner, w ho is of a
wealthy and well known family,
took his check book w ith him. for
he has something like tio.ntm in
his own name. The warden re
garded the book as superfluous, nnd
told the young man so, but the
mutter was finally compromised by
a dessit of forty or fifty dollars
with the prison oflicials, w ho said
that this young prisoner could pur
chase a little fruit occasionally, but
that he would have to eat at Hie
same table and the same food that
was giveu the other prisoners w ho,
while they had Is-en less fortunate
in the accumulation of the goods of
this world, had now been brought
to the same level by being in the
same place. The direct iont left

of the party, was shot and his con
dit ion is such that he hits not Istii
placed in jail.
Two causes are assigned by the
public and tumor for the killing.
One of these is that Jones had Ih cii
having uegio women as occupants
of his room and that the crowd
wanted to stop this: another that it
was thought (hat Jones was acting
as 1. detective and had caught on
to some gambling rooms reported
tols' iu iH'ration in the building
in which lie roomed, and that the
purpose of the crowd in cither case
was to force him to leave town.
The tragedy occurred in the
I'ryar building, above the Vienna
bakery, 011 fioldslioro street, just
oil' of Nash, the main .street of the
town. Just Is fori' I o'clock a
emwd of men went up into the
building and deiiiaiuled admittance
to Jones' room, pounding 011 the
door. Jones was iu IhmI and re
fused to open the door. The crowd!
broke dow 11 the door and rtisheil
iu. Shots were heard, then a pause,
and more shots and a voice crying
out; "Oh, (iod, I am shot, some
body help me!"
Humor has it thai Jones, expect
iug trouble, had armed himself
with it shotgun iiml had it near the
head of his In-iI; that when the
crowd broke in he shot, the loail
going into the wall, and that al
this parties in the crowd shot with
pistols, killing Jones and seriously
wounding Allen, otic of the party.
After the shooting the crowd
scattered, some, it is said, leaving
by w indows and going down a lad
der beyond a tin roof, while others
went out the ft out. John Allen,
who was bleeding freely from a
wound through the shoulder, ran
out, and accompanied by two of

J. H. Piver, was taken to the Wil

Jones was not killed at once, but

body ulMiut three inches below the
navel. When ollicers entered his
room after the shooting he was
found standing in his night clothes.
Mayor Herring ipieslioned him and
he said that he had Is-en uslccp,
that a crowd rushed into his room,

That he struggled out of lied ami

went wide of the mark. He was

those who were caring for her that
