Writing In tlie Light of Experience, Gives Some Ideas Which Architects Might Adopt with Profit —Opinions of Gall Ross. m-: Things have come to a pretty pass ;when an ex-convict in sheer disgust jf eels called upon to instruct American architect^ how to make houses burglar- ryoof, says the Chicago News. But such is the state of affairs, as the following interesting (Communication will (attest: . "To THE EDITOTI: If you will consider a few words from one who b,a£ been a burglar and housebreaker, I will say something apropos of tie Lmdblom robbery,In this city a few days slnoe. "The first thing that strikes an 'operator' from abroad upon his entrance into American cities is the utter absence of any thing like protection for your houses. „ Your architects seem to have lived all their lives In some retired pastoral vlllag* where .every ono is honest. They do not seem to understand that one chief part of their work should be to build bui(;l proof houses—a thing -which can be done, so easily that they ought to be ashamed of their Ignorance. "Suppose Mr. Snell had provided his house with light, handsome openwork iron—or bettor, steel—doors and windows, fastened with atrong chain locks, or Mr. Lindblom had protected Us windows with ironwork, do you suppose any thief would ever have entered them? These 'gillies,' as they are called, are common all over tho old country. When I was 'doing 1 time in an English, prison I remember how a prisoner used to dilate upon the verdancy of the Americans In not using tho same. 'As a health measure one would suppose builders would put in these guards so I overy thing cou.d bo opened to the fresh •at night. But obi.vo all they ought to remove the temptation of exposed valuables from lis-weak mortals. Ex-Co JTVTCT. "Please excuse bad wri' ; ng from a hand crippled by a pistol shot in St. L.OUIS ten years ago." This indictment of American builders |f or not constructing houses on the burg- ilar-proof plan is a matter demanding (some attention. Therefore it has been Ithought a good idea to obtain an inter- jview with a burglar and see how the ["profession" would look upon the es- i convict's reform notions. • But first to catch th« burglar • There stands at 234 Honore street an (old, two-story, drab frame house, the ifront door of which opens on a level iwith the ground. It is one of a row of :sis tenements, like many other barrack- ilike buildings that were hastily thrown . [together immediately after the great [fire. It is here that a Home of Indus- jtry, a refuge for discharged convicts, Is located. It was established about six Ijears. ago by the reformed burglar, ("Mike" Dunn, and it is presided over fey jKev. A. C. Dodds as superintendent. In jthe rear, of the home is a broom factory 'where the ex- convicts are put to work. iThe home has room only for those who _ 'desire not to return to their former igrulty occupations. A.jerk given to the old-fashioned bell- ilmob brings to the door a stout woman, iwho scans the caller critically from her ' kleep-set'brown eyes: "Come in, climb [those stairs and go back to the open [door at the end of the hall." I Eev. Mr. Dodds is found in his narrow' 'office, seated by a window overlooking the' convict workshop: He has thirty ex-convicts at work, several of whom have been well known to the police as bad criminals. He turns to his book of record and finds that he has several burglars in the shop, but he does not like the idea of having: them inter[viewed- . • | "Any one of them, no doubt, could [relate interesting stories, but I ^ don't [fancy .they are at all anxious to do so," (reasoned Mr. Dodds. However, he finally whistled down a tube and commanded the foreman to send up Gail Ross from the cut-off bench. ! "What a name for a burglar!" mused the reporter, and before he could form any idea of a person to fit the literary cognomen a shadow darkened the glass door- and a short man forty-two years old, the very image of Editha's burglar, entered, bowing. ' • Mr. Dodds explained the reporter's mission and the man signifie'd his willingness to talk. He spoke with the hint of a Scotch accent and his language a jcollege professor could not have dis- jcounted. /' "Of course Gail Rossis an assumed (name, is it nof?" asked the reporter. "Of course it is not," quickly retorted jthe- burglar. "Why should I have an - jasswned name? That name was worth rjjnucb. to me at one time. It. is worth -.more now, for it is about all I have' left except a bad cough and an en'•• feebled constitution. •"'•'• "No doubt it seems strange to you -#hat a burglar should sail under such a literary name, but why should.it? I was' vJuot always a burglar, and for that mat- 'rter I don't consider myself irretrievably .one now. When I grew up my name v seemed to look so well whenever I . Twote it', that it inspired me with an nrnUItion to see ft in" print. I though how I could best set about get-t-ing m- name be.fore the public, and began writing verse. My rhymes werp nrintai in a New York publication, and somi of them even broke through, the quarantine and got in the magazines. . imagined I was surely on the road to lame when I got that far, but—whisky you know. "All this has little to do with burg lar-proof houses, but even a burglar ha not necessarily lost his self-respect com pletely, and he likes to find an excuse for being what he is. I just want to say one thing, and then I'll give you my ideas about how houses should ba con strueted to keep out the 'profession.' "As I said, I got to writing poetry and poetry proved my downfall Through my verses I met arid became engaged to the daughter of a man thai 'afterward became Vice-President o the United States. Don't ask me her name. I still have enough honor to protect her from the disgrace of seein; her' name coupled with that of a burglar. Whisky destroyed my hopes "I shipped as pantryman to Liverpool and I visited many European cities Returning to America I became a burglar simply because it offered great er inducements than any thing I was able to tu-n my hand to. "But enough of that. The first burglary I remember of committin; was when my father lifted me over the fence into a neighbor's yard to stea? flowers. I.suppose he,didn't think how ba.d it really was, but the memory oi th'at first theft has clung to me always Subsequently when I took a notion to steal something more than flower— namely, to gut a jewelry store—I forti fied myself with a good bracer of whisky, 'worked' the house without a blush and blamed my father for teach ing me to steal. "Jsow, across the water it is not so easy to gain access to a house as here because of the iron screens. In New York it is hardly less difficult, in my opinion at least, for the same reason However, out West it is not considered a difficult feat to enter a house, take i' where you may." "And you ascribe that to—" "To the way the house is built. People have learned to protect their basement windows, as a rule, with bars, but still this is not always the case. One would think that a man with his millions, perhaps, in the bank, with his house loaded with costly arl pieces, and a fortune alone, may be, in diamonds and silverware, would take every precaution to guard against burglary, but he doesn't. He imagines because he never has been robbed that he never will be. That is about as much sense as the man had who didn't want his life insured because he hao never died. ''Whenever I took a notion to 'work 1 a house I didn't stop to go and look up the police record and see if the place had been 'worked' before. I immediately began laying my plans. A man with good nerve and a clear head who works alone ought to be successful always worked alone except once. Then I-was caught and my 'pal'-escaped. I was on the outside and he .'doing' the job. I took my sentence like a man and never 'peached' on him. Had I been 'operating' alone I don't think I would have been caught. "About making houses burglar-proof I should first recommend that people put locks on their doors that can't be picked with—well, with a button-hook. A burglar depends largely on a skeleton key to gain access.^ Men of means, however, now have the latch-lock on their doors, and these can not be picked —that is, not readily. To guard against entrance by the doors they should be heavy, shguld fit tight to prevent work with a 'jimmy,' should be double locked with a chain-lock on the inside and bolted securely at top and bottom. That will generally baffle a sneak-thief, who does not deserve to be called a burglar. However, when he finds the door effectually bars -him he can go to the rear, climb on a shed, portico, or even 'skin' up-a water-pipe or lightning-rod to a second-story window. Such a window is said to-be the easiest place of all to enter a house. That is why there are so many 'second-story workers,' as they are called, but I never tried it myself. To prevent these fellows all exposed windows—I rfiean those opening on a porch or shed—should be well barred. A 'second-story worker' doesn't carry tools as a rule. He is a sneak- thief." ' The man spoke these words as if the "profession" looked on sneak-thieves as objectionable characters who should be excluded from the society of honest cracksmen. . ' .' . 'But for iron bars and steel doors," lie continued, "an expert burglar has little dread. Give him time and he will £O through any thing. It requires a jenius to circumvent him, and even •enius is.not equal to it. And for this reason: A burglar or safe-blower has a greater incentive for surmounting the difficulties in the way of access to a ;reasure than has the inventor for creating them. Tho one receives his reward in the shape of salary; the other in working for a fortune, perhaps', that ies just beyond the barrier which he is" endeavoring to overcome. The burglar, rains a fortune for a few hours' labor; ihe inventor labors for a year, and at the end of that time gets barely the worth of his work. It is a natural law. Jiat where there is the greatest incentive there will be found the greatest results of labor. So it is you. will find burglars as smart and even -smarter ;han inventors.' . 'For my part I fail to see how you could make a house absolutely burglarproof. You might make it so difficult if access that the burglar will find another to suit his'purposes as well. One Jhing is .certain, however: A rich man s a fool not to have bars on his windows. They cost .little, but they may save much." . John K.

Of .the morn of life—long years ago— "We've memories sweet and tender. In days whon youthful hopes were bright, Ana means were small and slender; When summer's heat and winter's cold Were met und passed by lightly, When f rionilahips doar brought welcome cheer When evening lamps shons brightly; When at tho lading hours each, day The old clocl; in the corner ticked away— When the old clock ticked in the corner. The present is ours, with health and friends. With blessings new each morning, With bread ana moat each clay to cut, Anil for comfort anil adorning, Apnarel to wear, enough and to spare. In cold or sultry weather. And whether It snows, or rains, or blows, , What matters when we gather Where lamps - fresh trimmed burn clear and bright, While the pendulum swings to left and right— And the old clock ticks in the corner. Then let us forward look with faith In planning future duties; Let's seek out pleasaut walks and ways, New life, new loves, new beauties; Fill heart and soul with noble thought, Swell voice with Joyous chorus, Walking ahead with steady step, Along the way before us; Tien, now and hence, going hund-in-Land While the clock ticks oil Time's hour-glass sand— WMIe the old clock ticks in the corner. —Good Housekcepinj WITH THE DEUMIEES. Tales They Tell of Life on the Eoad. A Gay Chicago Drummer Who Exchanged One of His Own Teeth for ft Lady's— How It Changed His Tastes — OtUcr Amusing Incidents. '•Well, yes, I might relate something that is rather extraordinary," said a drummer for a Chicago boot and shoe house to a Chicago Herald reporter, "if you will pardon me for narrating a story which cliiefly concerns myself, was down in a Central Illinois town drjimming up trade one day when I was attacked with the toothache. I had an unsound tooth that had troubled me for quite awhile and I determined to have done with it then and there. I sought a dentist's chair, and told him to pull it out. He tried to convince me that several dollars' worth of gold filling would make it good as new, but my ire was roused and I was bent on having revenge. I would not be satisfied until I'had convinced tha't tooth that I could do without jt. So I commanded him to pull it out, and with protestations he reluctantly did so. It occupied the place that this tooth does," said the traveling man, tapping' one of his incisors, "and when it was once out I saw that I looked so. strangely that something else must take its place as soon as possible. I asked the dentist if he had nothing- else he could put in the place of it as I did not like my appearance at all. He was thoughtful for a moment, when a light seemed to dawn on his mind. He took from a cabinet a bottle in which was a tooth immersed in a liquid of some kind. 'I have here,' he remarked, 'a good, ssund, healthy tooth that will almost exactly match the rest of yours, that I can plant in the one just extracted and it will grow as though nothing had happened.' He persuaded me, without much opposition on my part, that it would be better than a false tooth, and it was the work of only a few moments for him to put it in place. It was sore for a short time but soon grew firm and solid, and to-day it is as good a tooth as I have. "But now for the stranger part of the itory. Before the dental operation I speak of was performed I-had been addicted to the use of tobacco. I smoked and chewed almo st to excess. From the day I got my new tooth my love for tobacco began to decrease, and by the time the tooth had become firm and solid I couldn't use the weed at all. A chew of tobacco or smoking a cigar made me very sick.. In fact. I became opposed to the use of tobacco generally and have remained so till the present day. But as my love for tobacco waned my love for chewing gum increased, and I'm never without it now. I became passionately fond of ice-cream also, and during the summer season I can scarcely get enough of it, and a strange feature of the case is I want some other man to pay for it. There seems to be something about that tooth that makes me crave for ice-cream. It is with great difficulty I can pass a millinery store without going in and pricing- all the goods in stock. Sometimes, when I'm n a great hurry to catch a train, I find myself stopping in front of some milliner's window to inspect the latest style of hats. When I pass a lady wearing an attractive gown or hafon the street, .t wouldn't matter if there were a mad dog after me, I'd stop and look around ;o see if her dress and hat were becoming. 1 It didn't talie me long to surmise ;hatthe new tooth was in some way to jlaine for my strange antics, and wVusn '. visited .the dentist's town again I wtfat /o him and told him every thing. 'Oh,' said he, 'it is even worse than I feared t would be. That tooth used to belong to a young lady.'" A CONDITIONAL SUEBESDEK. "Up in a little town in Wisconsin," remarked a -trade seeker whose sample case boars the name of 'a Chicago grocery house, "there used to be two nerehants who hated each other as ,hey hated poison. . They were both re- .ired farmers who had gone into business to while their time away as much as to make moaey. Their stores were Lirectly across a little open square rom each other, and, trade being ver^r low, they had plenty of tim- to watch jaeh other. They were opposed to jaeh other in business, religion and pol-. tics. They avoided meeting on the treet, and when .they did meet they never spoke. Aside from the hatred, hey bore each other they were genial, . riendly men. Their friends used to try o get-them to patch- up their troubles and differences, but each was firmly determined that the other must take .the irst step toward a reconciliation and 11 efforts to amicably adjust matters ailed. Finally one of the men becama | very ill. When told that death might; come at any moment he expressed desire that he be permitted to make peace with, his' pnemy TTo <=erit. for him *•<•> come, and presently the two men who had hated each other for so locg were brought face to face. 'We have been enemies for a long time,' said the sick man, 'but they tell me now that I am going to die, and if I do bear in mind that I forgive you every thing you have «v«r said or done against me, but if I should by chance recover remember I'll keep up the fight just 'as bitterly as heretofore, and don't you forget it.'" MEETING AX EMERGENCY. "A rather peculiar incident occurra on a car in which I was riding out in Iowa a few days ago," said one of Chi cage's commercial tourists. "On the car was a lady and her four-year old boy. He was a sweet, attractiv little felloxv and at once became the fa vorite of all the passengers, who be stowed a great deal, of attention upon him. He wore a neat little f ur-trimmec overcoat, from which a button had be come detached. As a matter of coursi the button found its way to the child'; mouth. Suddenly the mother uttered a wild scream and the passengers were all greatly excited. The child's face grew pale. It had swallowed that button. The mother exclaimed that her child was dyimg. There was no doctor on the train. What was to be done 1 " In this emergency, as inmost all others there was some one capable of meeting it. While everybody 'else were wring ing their hands in helpless agony, on man, who under ordinary circumstances •would not attract special attention was .cool and collected. While the other passengers told the mother to pound the child on the back, shake it stand it on its head, and other non sensical things, he told her to calmly wait a minute and all would be right Taking a piece of string from his lef hand vest pocket he attached it to a button-hole, which he inserted in the child's mouth and induced it to swallow it There was a composed look on the man's face that seemed to assure the rest of us that he knew what he was about, and he certainly did, for when he pulled the string and brought that button-hole to our view again there was the button in it, sure enough. In a few minutes everybody was laughing am chatting again, but the calm, quiet man was looked upon as a hero for the res' of the journey." WHY HE LIKES WINTER "I'm glad winter is here," remarkec a bald-headed commercial man. "You can't imagine how the flies bother me during the summer. If it were not for the fact that my business keeps me here I believe I'd move to Labrador, where the fly season is not so serious an affair. I am so constituted that I must keep my head cool, and in warm weather I go bare-headed as much as possible. An artist friend of mine saic he could paint a spider on my bald spot that would look so natural -the flies would not dare to come near it. At first I laughed at the idea, but as the season advanced and the flies became more troublesome I got desperate one day and told him to paint it. He did so, and you can believe it or not just as you like, but it fooled the flies every time. The moment I would remove my hat every fly. in the vicinity would start for my head, but just as they were about to settle down they would see the spider and dart away in the wildest alarm. But for all that the scheme was not a success, for while it fooled the flies it also fooled other people.' Every time I'd remove my hat everybody would be'slapping my head with all their might trying^, to kill that awful spider before it had time to bite me When I'd lift my hat to ladies; on the street they would see the insect and either shout 'murder' or faint away. And so I had to have it removed and fight the flies as before. But I tell you I. enjoy winter weather and hope it will last to the middle of August." UNCLE SAM'S ROAD. A Military Highway Used by Early "Western Settlers. This military road was constructed by the United States Government to connect the military posts of the far West with one another. Beginning at Fort Leavenworth, on tlie Missouri river, it passed through . Fort Riley at the junction of the forks of the Kaw, and then, still keeping up the north side of the Republican fork, went on to Fort Kearney, still farther west then to Fort Laramie, which in those days was so far on the frontier of our country that few people ever saw it except military men and the emigrants to California. At the time of which J am writing, there had been a very heavy emigration to California, and companies of emigrants, bound to the Golden Land, .still occasionally passed along the great military road. Interlacing this highway were innumerable trails and wagon-tracks, the traces of the great migration to the Eldorado of the Pacific; and here and there were the .narrow trails made' by Indians on their hunting expeditions and warlike excursions. Roads, such as our emigrants have been accustomed to in Illinois, there were none. First came the faint traces of human feet and of •unshod horses and ponies; then the -well-defined trail of hunters, trappers and Indians; then the wagon-track of the military trains, which, in course of -time, were smoothed and formed into the military road kept in repair by the United States Government. — Noah Brooks, in St. Nicholas. Soow-Slipcs in War. In the early -%'ars with Frensh and Indians many a winter campaign could never have been carried on but for the snow-shoes, which alone made' marching possible. In the winter attacks of the" savages upon the settlements in Ifbrthern New England and inthe expeditions of English and French troops snow-shoes were a necessary, part- of then- equipment, their baggage being hauled on sleds or toboggans.—N.

The arrangement of the coiffure is a matter of much consequence, and wil ever be treated as such as long as "Fair try.HHCS turn's imperial rued uii.snnro, AncNjuauty draws us with but a single Ijnir However, since the days when women wore horned head-dresses, la token o their being descended from rank am authority, to the present time, when hair-dressing merely aims at the ar which imitates chance, there has neve been a coiffure which has served for universal style. Hair, has ever refusec to typify any thing, and its fashion ha stood upon its privilege of being a variable as—well, fashion. Derision, criticism and tirade have a last vanquished false hair almost en tirely, and at present it is necessary t have a fine head rather than fine bail and coiffures must be coiffures of dis tinction instead of dressy arrangement devised by ordinary taste. There i such a growing preference for antiqui fashions that portraits of famous beau ties of a century or two ago are con suited for many items of the toilet, one of the most important being coiffures Abroad historic styles are seen now an then, and the Louis XVI., not averse tc ripples for light hair, is a friend also tc puffs, with gems and feather tips fot full dress. M. Virgile, the great Prussian hair dresser, is reviving the style favored bj the Empress Josephine, copied from her portraits between 1SOO end 1810, Th idea was probably taken from the an cient Greek models. The hair, drawn together at the back, is twisted into a small round chignon rather high on the head, and from this appears the hair frize and in front a light fringe of smal curls. The capotes are made so that this chignon is outside. This is the very latest style, and for dressy even ing wear a small wreath with a bunch of feathers or ribbon in front is enough for the object is to keep the general effect of the head small and compact. There are some of the leaders of fashion who wear the hair plaited lovt down and the plait brought up to the top of the head. Another style much hi vogue is to have the hair waved or oyduli. There is an iron especially for the purpose and it takes about three- quarters of an hour to do. Hard or limp hair takes a much longer time to operate on successfully than soft, naturally curly hair. With the latter style of hair the undulation will last over two weeks, while limp hair requires the operation renewed more constantly. But this style only suits certain faces and looks very ridiculous if not perfectly becoming. There will perhaps be a revival of the Du Barry fashion, with its soft-cushion roll placed well back from • the front oJ the head, while the directoire style, with its eccentric fancy of having the forehead nearly covered, and the picturesque Lamballe, all waves and haif- curled curls, are copied with ^certain styles of costumes. Toilets which are simply dressy and do not include any historic features require merely showy coiffures, which owe their distinction to the art with which they are adapted to the individual and the style of dress which they accompany. The only imitation quoted of a veritable ancient coiffure is the Roman, with three gold bands, and this style must be followed cautiously. A lady with a long face should dress her hair on the back of her head. The hair on the top should be arranged in waves, and a fringe should be brought over the forehead and well over the temples, the idea being to broaden the face as much as possible. If the neck is perfectly formed it may be 'left bare, but if long and sinewy it should be covered somewhat with loose curls. A lady with a round face should arrange her hair on the top of her head. The rope-twist is a good style, and the hair should be arranged to come to a point. Any one with a broad forehead should wear as little hair on the temples as possible and dress it high. One with a low forehead should keep the hair off -the forehead in front and arrange a few curls on the temples. A lady with a receding forehead should have the hair well curled on the' forehead. The bad effect of high cheekbones can be modified by arranging the hair in a cluster of small curls on the temples. Frizzes, curls, and waves are essentially the fancies of fair-haired Gallic women. JSsthetic writers speak of hair as golden as a new sovereign or as yellow as ripe corn—shades which are more commonly artificial than natural- Rust-colored hair is at present favored over blonde, and -when accompanied by brown eyes and a pale complexion is.a source of envy to the yellow'type. With evening toilet, when -satin or velvet flowers are used as garnitures, little sprays of the same are adapted for coiffure ornaments, although for matrons'two or three small tips are preferred for the hair and corsage.—Chicago Times. Weight of 'the' jSarth,. As a matter of fact, the e'arth has no wdight. Weight is the pull of gravity award a center and when speaking of ;he weight of the earth we must consider the pull of gravity towards , the sun, and in that respect the earth is equally poised. All parts of the earth wessing- toward the earth's center equalize each other, so that, a tow line .vould pull the earth thousands of miles out of its orbit. Rather than penetrate an atmosphere of another body so, thin hat no animal life could exist in it. our earth would make a great circuit to get around it. The almost imperceptible attraction of one of the other, planets pulls our earth thousands of miles . but of its regular path.---St. Joseph Herald. Where the Request Came From.

Being the most ancient, it is the most general ot all diseases or affections, for very few persons are entirely free from it.

DAYTUN, TJSSN., a beautiful town of 5,OCO in- Habitants, located on the Queen and Crescent Route, 293 miles south of Cincinnati, has hitherto* kept aloof from the excitement Attending the- boom of the New South; but the possibilities- offered by a town already established with, an inexbaustibJc suppjy. of coal, iron.and timber* and with cokeing ovens, blast furnaces,factories- and hotels in operation, were too great to escajfe the eye of the restless capitalist, and k strong party of wealthy men from Chicago, Chattanooga and Nashville, in connection with prominent banking firms in New England, ha-ve formed a. company to be known as the Corporation of Dayton, forlhe sale of town lots, the establishment of industrial enterprises, etc. It is an assured fact that within Six months Dayton will have another railroad from the. houth-cast, which will malie it an important- junction, and transfer point for nearly one-fifth, of tlie freight and passenger traffic b«tween-the- Great North-\yest and the South-cast. In addition to this it is located on the Q. and C., one ot the largest and most important of the Southern Trunk Lines. It is in the midst of the fertile and beautiful Tennessee Valley; has already an established reputation as a prosperous and s. e manufacturing town and some additional strength as a hwilth'resort.
