In his case, the electric railroad company alleges, he went two blocks away from .his home for his electric,supply, .tincl strung hi-fi wires over housetops. It is said that no less than n thousand business men arc occupying- brilliantly-lighted stores, und that they do not pay 'a cent for their illumination. Each has a copper connection with-a convenient trolley wire which furnishes tbem a better quality of light than the rcg-ular lighting companies. ,Whoie- • sale prosecutions, it is said, will follow.

SUltGERY. Extraordinary Operation of Sldn Orattt. B I'orCoraied at Chicago. Ur. MtcbolM. SBDD r»»ten« K- E. Maimed 'Hand Innldo' tho Cuticle of and Rentore» It to StrrnEtb. Dr. Xicholivs Senn has made a. success of nn extraordiuury operation in skin g-rafting;. Xoihingr of the i;ind ever was 'ried before, and lhi> i:n;inc::t Cliicag-0 burgeon has sturtled bis nn-d:c:il brethren again by his daring «nd is receiving their plaudits for the triumph of bis remarkable experiment. The. parboiled hand of a man, devoid of Kki'n on its back, was inserted in a puncture made between the Kl;in ami the flesh of the man's own stomach three weeks ago and fastened there, literally in D. sling of skin and flesh. The Other day it was removed nnd it was fr-mid that the skin of the stomach had grown to the back of the hand. It was carefully treated, trimmed down to where it should grow, and ifMrhimph of akin grafting was nmde public. The patient is E. E. Lyday, cashier of the First notional bank of Xewton, la. He lias been a resident and a business man of that place for years. Mr. LytJay •wns a victim of a wreck on the Chicago, Bock Island & Pacific railway a.t Grm- r.dl, la., in 1S94. The "hot nir" pressure on a coach at that time severely scalded his face and hands. He was scarred for life. In the course of time he recovered the use of'his left hand, but his right hand WHS so parboiled find maimed that he lost control of it. The member was like a piece of mangled b'.'.ef. The skin wns hopelessly and permanently gxmo from finger tip to wrist. Being possessed of meanP, Mr. T.yday sought the bo.st of surgical aid. regard- Ii-ss of expense, but without nvni!, until recently. Several weeks ago he came, to Chicago and wont to St. Joseph's hospital. Dr. Seen wan summoned. The Rnrpvon found that the hnnd baffled all old remedies nt grafting. Hs finally decided to make nn .experiment as tbe last hope for relief. I.ydiiy shuddered at, ihc sugS'i-srion. but phickily agreed to the tost. Dr. Senn decided that the chance was to slice a piece of skin in Today's breast or stomach BO that the hand could be inserted therein Xx-twecn the flesh ar;<i skin, thus practically making a sling of skin and flesh m which the patient could rest his disfigured hand. Lyday first submitted to the knife April 2">. A piece of. bis skin three incJics in width, five inches long o.nd a quarter of an inch thick was skillfully cut. The unique bandage was lifted to permit the insertion of the mangl^J end scalded hf.nrl which needed a new- covering. The hand was placed in this novel grafting device a few weeks ago. The triumph was complete. The skin hat! grown on tho back of the hand, anil a process was promptly applied to sub- stitute'nnother skin on the stomach and breast, from which the strip had been transferred to the hand. A photographer took advantage of the opportunity,' and several good negatives of the achievement were secured. Mr. Lyda'-y - i's in excellent spirits, and Dr. Se.nn naturally is prmul of the success of his novel experiment. DR. JAMESON ON THE DECLINE. He In Bcluc Dropped by Fashionable Set In Enj:!>»i"l— Kot to S' ttrr J' » Poer«»». The story that has been circulated to the effect that Dr. Jameson, the leader of the raid into the Transvaal, will shortly-marry a peeress is not credited. In referring'to the subject a London paper asks: "What peeress?" and adds: "A more contemptible, imbecile and discreditable piece of business than the .T;inieson raid it would be difficult to •find on the pages of English history. Apart from press opinion, the fact is that Dr. Jameson is getting outside the fashionable circle, whore he was a short time ago received as one of England's heroes, lie is now utterly discredited and recog-nizcd as a rash fool, whose .conduct: involved ruin all around."

Dr. Lazarus, the "Sand Mountain hci^ mit," widely kn*wn for his peculiar mode of life, died in bis cabin.on Sand mountain, Jackson, county, A] a. Mrs. Hug-h Carlisle, wife of Maj. Carlisle, a wealthy railroad builder, in return for skillful professional services rendered her in New York by Dr.' Lazarus 20 vc.irs a«o, bore all the funeral expenses and buried the remains in the cemetery atGnntersville, Ala; He was a very quaint character, and had diplomas from the best medical' schools of New York, London, Paris, Berlin and Edinburgh. His father was at one time a wealthy shipowner of Wilmington, N. C., whose ships visited the ports of the old world. The son became an able writer, and contributed to n number of foreign journals in several languages, but he fell a victim to communistic views, which ultimately excluded him from society. He became a misogymist, cursing the human race, and for years has lived remote from civilization. His steed was n saddled ox, !>nd tbe sharers of his habitation the mountain goats, on whose milk, together with wild roots. he eked out an existence. GARB OF QUAKERS. Milled at tho Annual Sleotlnn of th» Society of Friend*. The yearly meeting of the Society of 1'riends, occurred in New York recently nnd 'many delegates from other cities were present to attend the 202d session. The gathering included the meeting in all towns of eastern Sew York and Long Island. A meeting of tbe First Day School association opened the session. The old meeting house at Rutherford place and Fifteenth street was crowded •with tho mcmbei-s of the society «>& outsiders, and about two dozen elders, men and women, sat at the front of the house in the "facing scats." Among these ciders, most of them well ad- • vanccd in life, was almost the only place where the old-fashioned gray and drab of the order were seen. A few in the body of the meeting wore gray gowns and bonnets, but, as a rule, the friends were dressed like "the world's people." The quciint "thee' nnd "thou," however, still hold 'their place among- the members. __ DAMROSCH AND GRAU. The Combination T»llco<I of for American Operatic Management. The interest in thr failure of Abbey, Schoffel & Grau at Xcw York is unabated. Tbe most persistent of all the rumors which were circulated the other flay was tbat Mr. Abbey would leave the firm, a,nd that he would then proceed tc organize a stock company with a capital of $100,000, with the privilege of increasing it to $500.000, whose business it would be to manage theaters and opera houses, conduct the tours of rccog-- nizcd stars and \c engage in general theatrical business. The declaration was made that Sir.
