Wonderful Power Possessed by a Young Man Near ' Guionsville. BEEPES7S COME OUT AT HIS O^JLL, White Bird* and Fishes Are Obrilient to His Will—Ho Cutchcs the Finny Tribe •with His Hands—Corner Stone L;iiil for the >"ew Allen County Court Ilonsi;— Sutherland Given a. New Trial—ludicu-d for AVhit«cuppln£. Lawrenceburs, Ind., Nov. 19.—A youns juan 23 years old, living 1 near Guions- ville, and known as "Hun" Conway, for years has possessed a \vonderful power over snakes, birds and fish. At Irs command snakes will crawl from tnt-ir holes and coil about him, birds \v:l! :ly to his feet, and fish will float to the surface and yield themselves to his touch. Conway is of mediocre intr-!li- gence, and ho can offer no explanruior. for his strange Influence over the i'.wer forms of animal life. Recently Hon. H. D. McMullt-n and the board of county commissioners had business in the vicinity of Guionsville, and a call was jnade upon Conway, with a request that ke demonstrate his peculiar gifts. How lie Manures Snake;*. Thereupon Conway accompanied them to the banks of Laughery creek, where ke uttered a peculiar cry, whereupon several shiny-skinned snakes emerged from their holes- and crawled toward Urn, colling themselves about his arms and neck. After being touched by his iand they seemed to fall into a kind of u, stupor, offering no resistance what- «rer. Seven snakes of different specie* responded to the call. President Heatcn, «{ the county board, and Judge McMul- Jen, being somewhat skeptical as to the •ondition of the snakes, ventured to take hold of two of the reptiles, whereupon the snakes instantly recovered •fceir native activity, and with flashing •res. open jaws and protruding tongues »ey made every effort to revenge the Intrusion. Both gentlemen were thoroughly frightened, and lost no time in iurling the reptiles to a safe distance. Catchci Fishes In Hin Hand*. Conway then resumed his control over Hie reptiles, finally permitting them to return to their hiding places. Conway then disrobed and dived into the chilly •waters of the creek, reappearing with a fish In each hand, and he continued to catch fish until each man was pro- Tided with a good string. Then he redressed and went to a neighboring thicket, where he whistled for the birds, jwid soon a number were perched upon TU9 head and shoulders with all the fa- •illiarity of domesticated pets. Ever aince childhood Conway has shown a Hking for strange pets, and his leisure kours have been spent in companionship -»ith snakes and birds, over which he >as remarkable control. His greatest fondness is for snakes, and under nj circumstances could he be induced 10 kill one. _____ iN COUNTY'S NEW COVRT HOTTSE.

Walsh, of Chicago, who was here Wednesday, says R will be one of the finest buildings ever erected In the west. XEW TRIAL FOR SrTHERLAND. «««te Supreme Court Finds Fault with the Trial Juiljre's Charge. Indianapolis. Nov. 19.—William Sutherland, of Knox. Starke county, who is serving a life sentence for the murder of Edward Fetters a year ago, is to be released for a new trial. The supreme •ourt holds that he was not convicted according to law. The murder case was one of the most sensational that ever •arne up in northern Indiana. The case •was reversed because the court instruct«d the jurors that if they found from «be evidence that the human body found to the garve beneath the body of the xrale was the dead body of Fetters they were justified in finding that a murder kad been intentionally committed and fcat the person who buried it had some- «iingr of a criminal character to do with »he murder. The court says that this invaded the province of the jury by telling them what inferences to draw from *he facts proved. Some "Best Citizens" Indicted.

Kokomo, Ind., Nov. 19.—Concerning the reported resignation of Bob Fitzsimmons as a member of the Marion lodge of Elks, District Deputy Armstrong says: "It may possibly make the settlement easier, but of itself it would not necessarily lead to the reinstatement of the Marion lodge." Armstrong further remarked that the lodge would probably be reorganized with some of the old membership left out. His opinion la that Fitzsimmons felt compelled to resign to keep other show people from fighting him, as many of them are connected with Elk lodges.^ Half Grown Alligator JBttfc Up. Princeton, Ind., Nov. 19.—Workmen on the streets found a half-grown alligator buried in the ground. It was dug out, and made an effort to escape, but was captured. The colored workmen all made a hasty retreat at the first sight of the 'gator. All are wondering bow it came to be In this locality. It may have escaped from a passing circus train during the summer.

Butte, Mont., Nov. 19.—The State Trades and Labor associations have adopted resolutions condemning the interference of the United States court with the Chinese boycott here and other boycotts elsewhere on the ground that the boycott of organized labor is a defensive instrument, an expression of the right to extend patronage to those who, by employing union labor, patronize labor. The boycott is declared to be merely the right of a man to choose his own assistants to go wherever he wills on the public highways; to work for whoever he may desire and to patronize whom he pleases; to prosecute his business in a competitive way, even to the Injury of another's business, provided In so doing he is not guilty of defaming another citizen.

Where Hard I*bor I» Put Upon Women. Food Thmt I» Either loo Hot For Comfort or Too Touch For Digestion—In Indian Hut*. [Special Correspondence.] ALBUQCEEQCE, N. M., Nov. 10,— Eight here, where the western offshoot of the main line of the Santa Fe takes its course toward and among the Indian towns of Arizona, is a good place to halt and indite a letter. I have started for Mexico, but on my way thought I "would take a cursory view of the most interesting Indians along the route. Westward from here, scattered along an irregular line, are such numbers of Indian towns and villages, substantially built and occupied by a superior class of red men, that one might spend years in studying them and their surroundings. They have been frequently described, and our scientists-and ethnologists have found them a fruitful subject for investigation. It is now more than 20 years since the first government expedition made its explorations, and yet the students have not completed their studies of these unique people and their great mud dwellings housing hundreds »f Indians. These Indians are shy about admitting strangers within their domiciles. In the first place, you have to climb up a ladder the height of one story to find entrance to their living apartments, and, in the second, it is ten to one you •will be met at the doorway by some black browed Indian, with a surly dog snarling from between bis bandy legs, and your admittance sternly combated. But a dollar here assumes the size of a cart wheel to the aforesaid Indian when it is his in prospective, and it is only necessary to show it to him to have the frown on his brow relax and the cur dog kicked howling into a corner. Once within you are sure to find the mnd walls of the room coated with whitewash, the mud floor cleanly swept and both floor and walls adorned with interesting curios. In one corner may be a shrine, but in another is always to be found the primitive mill in which the corn is ground and prepared for the table. This mill sometimes consists of a stone slab merely and a stone rolling pin, and again of a stone trough, with the milling slab slantwise against one side. But always you will find the mill in operation and the "millers" at their posts. These latter are women, generally old squaws grown aged at their labors, but frequently young girls with bare and shapely arms and little hands, black hair loosely hanging down their shoulders and in a negligee dress consisting of a single garment belted at the waist. I have seen many of these "rnoline- ras" both here and in old Metico, as well as in Central America, and thej are always picturesque. Those of Yucatan and the hot regions are more so than these of the Pueblos, as they usually work naked to the waist and thoii apparatus is more primitive. The milling stones consist of a flat slab, called the "metatl," and the stone rolling pin, called the "metalpille," both words derived from the ancient Aztec; an earthen bowl or gonrd to hold the corn and another to receive the meal. By this laborious process of grinding between two stones corn has been converted into meal by these people for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years, and it is always the women of the household who have to do it. AH the day long and sometimes well into the night they toil at the mill, stopping only to make the meal into cakes and bake them on another stone slab or flat iron plate over a hot fire. These cakes, by the way, are the famous " tortillas," pronounced "tortee- yas," but no matter how pronounced they are nutritious, though nearly as tough as leather. The Pueblo Indian, as well as the native Mexican and Yu- catecaa, subsists almost entirely upon these tortillas, together with "frijoles" (tfreeholays) and "chile con carne.'' The frijoles are nothing more nor less than beans, the round black beans of the country, which are first boiled, then stewed in fat or fried. And speaking of richness—why, I don't know, of another article of the kitchen that can surpass these frijoles in rich, nutritive material. I have eaten probably, they have followed the pronunciation of them and stamped upon thieir cans the wonderful legend "chili colorow." Now, everything that these people eat is either too warm for comfort or too tough for digestion. The Indian or the Mexican is an inordinate drinker of blatk coffee and a perfect fiend at smoking cigarettes. I have often thought that, what with his devouring of tough tortillas, bolting of redhot chili Colorado, and swamping his stomach with coffee, the lining membrane of that organ must be as durable as that famous piece of leather which made the dasher of the "one boss shay" and which was found in the vat when the tanner died." Anyway the Mexicans, if not the Indians, are frequently the victims of indigestion and their skins are as brown and oily as a smoked herring. The women have finer complexions than the men invariably, and this may be owing to their smoking fewer cigarettes—for they all smoke some—or to GEKDIXG COKSf. them a hundred times, and if I had m? •hoice I should prefer them"re-fritos," •r refried, with all the pork fat fried into them by repeated heatings. Then there is the "chile con carne," •r meat seasoned with redhot peppers, •which only an Indian or Mexican stomach can'' stomach'' anyway. Sometimes it to called "chile Colorado," or red pepper, aid this reminds me of a funny mistake some packers of this warm Beat and pepper mixture hare made. Following the example of those enter- ^iging flims who have put canned toons on the market, they have prepared {be chile Colorado likewise. There may •have been DO mirtake in that; but, Wer hiring 8MB tb« work in print MAKING TOETILLAS. their drinking less coffee. Again, it may be owing to the fact that they are women and ought to look pretty, regardless of what they eat or what they drink. I have seen many of them grinding at the mills, in the comers of Indian huts, beneath straw thatched shanties and in the open air, and have always found them exceedingly attractive and picturesque, with the warm, rich coloring of their complexions, tbe velvety softness of their skins and their graceful attitudes. If oiu- artists would only think it worth the while to leave Europe out of their itinerary some seasons and take a trip or two down this way, they would find abundant material to transfer to their canvases. .1.

Edison gave it out that ha had "gone out" of electricity and the taking out of patents. Mechanics and metallurgy, he said, would thereafter receive his closest attention, though he should use electricity as a means \vhenever it seemed the best thing to do and should take out patents •whenever that was necessary in order to give himself the legal right to use any one of his own inventions. And so it is that the visitor to his laboratory here, which must have originally cost $500,000 and is unquestionably the finest in the world, sees as many or more things not electrical to interest him as those which have to do with the mystic current and its various applications. The photograph gallery, for instance, is not excelled in its appointments by any in the country, and the Edison collection of photographs is certainly unique. They include, besides the photographs that have been accumulated in connection with the kineto- ecope, a great number of photographs of microscopic objects, and it was by means of the silent testimony of one of these photographs that the wizard won a suit brought for the protection of his most important invention. Even more interesting than the microscopic photographs, which include some truly wonderful ones of the eyes of insects, is the collection of substances already referred to. This is a really unique aggregation, and Mr. Edison declares that it includes every known sub stance on earth—skins and bones and hair of animals, common and rare, scales of fishes, feathers of birds, shining crystals, gleaming metals, earths from all quarters of the globe, stones of every sort, salts, rosins, gums, chalks and chemicals. Besides, there is a wonderful gathering of manufactured products—textile fabrics, metallic sheets and all sorts of fiber twisted into cords from the size of the finest silks to great cables. Every sort of paper ever made is included, too, as well as a perfect collection of rubb«r fabrics, and ttrere are also specimens of all the seeds of the earth. In fact, the collection is practically what Mr. Edison claims for it, and the articles of which it is made up could not be listed even in much less space than that afforded by one entire issne of a newspaper. To some the collection of mechanical and trade devices would be most interesting of all. It is not universal, of course, but it is undoubtedly the most comprehensive of its sort in the world. Pickaxes of many designs, saws, coffee mills, meat choppers, wheelbarrows, ladders, strange contrivances from strange lands, the very use of which is not apparent without careful inspection, are heaped together quite unclassified, and perhaps tinclassifiable, A half day's examination would not only bewilder the visitor, but add to his admiration for the versatile powers of the man who could get such a collection together and make good use thereof.
