Desperate Insane Convicts in New • York Gain Their Freedom. Oliver Perry, the Nervy Exprem Robber, One of the Number- Story of His Crime. POUGHKEEPSEE, N. Y., April 11.— Perry, tho noted train robber whose exploits a few years ago, while trying to rob the car of the American Express company on the New York Central railroad, caused great excitement at the time, with four other inmates of the Matte-wan state asylum, escaped from that institution at a late hour Wednesday night. They assaulted a keeper and escaped through the scuttle. The names of the men are McGuire, O'Donnell, Quigley and Davis. All were dressed alike. The escape was made about 11 o'clock. The men were all confined in separate ceils with double locks, and how they succeeded in getting out is so far unknown to the authorities, an investigation not yet having been fully made. Kscapfid Throuith tho Chnpel. ^ They first passed into the chapel, and thence into the attic where the windows are unguarded, but fastened. The men were heard to break in the Bash and two of them were seen to drop to the ground, while two others were seen on the roof. A general alarm has been sent out and men are searching the country in all directions. Hum >"<>t IJ««n Cftiiclic. Dr. Allison,superintendent of tbe asylum, at 10 o'clock Thursday morning reported that none of the escaped prisoners had been captured, and no news as to their whereabouts had been received.

Ho was afterward convicted and sentenced to Auburn prison for u long term of years. He had served about a year and a half when he was transferred to Mattewan as Incurably insane. A Startling Admission. In New York City, for five consecutive years, the proportion of Deaths from Consumption has been three in <every Twenty Persona. Epidemics of Cholera, Yellow Fever and other diseases of similar character, so terrible in their results, occasion wide spread alarm and receive the most careful consideration for their prevention and cure, while consumption receives scarcely a thought, yet the number of their victims sinks into insignificance when compared with those of consumption. Comparatively few people know what to do for their loved ones when they see them gradually lose strength, lose color, manifest feeble vitality and emaciation, or develop a cough, with difficult breathing, or hemorrhage. Cod liver oil was for a long time given in all such cases, but the poor success attending its use coupled with its nauseating taste has led many practitioners, as well as the public at large, to place their main reliance in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discover}-. It deserves early attention and will prove effectual not in every casebut in a large percentage of cases, and we believe that fully_t)S per cent, of all cases of consumption can, if taken in the early stages of the disease, be cured with the "Discovery." Dr. Pierce docs not ask people to believe until they have investigated for themselves. A pamphlet has been published having the names, addresses and photographs ofnlarfrenurnberofUio.se cured of consumption, bronchitis, lingering coughs, asUinin, chronic nasal catarrh and kindred maladies which \v|J! be mailed free to those sending for it with their name and address upon a postal card, or you can have a medicnl treatise, in book "form of 160 pages, mailed to you, on receipt of address and six cents in" stamps. You can then write tbosL- cured and learn their experiences. Address for Book, WORLD'S DISPENSARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, Buffalo, N. Y. llljrh' Anrlal Ts~ayl«atlon. Beyond 20,000 feet above sea level, the height reached by Glaishcr in 1SC2, man has never been able to navigate the ah-. Various problems concerning the regions farther away (higher up)— such as temperature, pressure, moisture and composition of the air—have been leading; subjects of discussion among the physicists for years. In 1SOS, M. Hormite adopted the plan of sending •up balloons fitted out with sclf-rcgis'- terinfr instruments. These b»lloons have been brought up to what is considered perfection. They are very light, the average capacity being only 150 cubic feet of gas. With these a systematic exploration of tho' upper ^regions of the air is being madu, and it is said that some of them have attained a height of 30,000 feet. Bullet Penetrate* Nine feet. Of greater effect at longer range than even the shots from a Lebel or Mansur rifle is the new bullet invented by an officer named Hebler of the Swiss army. It is shaped somewhat after the fashion of a goose quill, and with a charge only slightly over ^A grammes (S3 grains) ot powder will travel 1,400 yards and penetrate a block of wood to the depth of 9 feet. At a longer range the peuetrating power is still great, as the shot will enter a block of wood at a distance of 0,000 yards, or nearly 3K miles. SllTer In th* Ocean. The water of the whole ocean, it is estimated, contains hi solution over 2,000,000 tons of pure silver. ^_ ROTHSCHILD REWARDED HIM. Wlnilo the IJnron W;»« Sluing as n BngrKiK Modol i* Student rieuniMl IHm, Dining on one occasion witli" Baron James de Rothschild, Eugene Delacroix, the famous French painter, kept his eyes turned upon his host in so marked a manner that, when the company rose to leave the dining-room, Baron James could not help asking his guest what it \v:is that so attracted his attention, says tho Philadelphia Press. The painter confessed that for some time past he had vainly sought a head to servo as a model for that of a beggar he intended to bold a prominent posi- ition in a painting on which he was then engaged, and that, as he gazed at his host's features, the idea suddenly struck him that tho very head he desired was bcfore-iiim. With this explanation he ventured to ask the baron whether ho would do him the favor to sit for him as the beggar. Rothschild, being a great admirer of art in all its forms, and pleased to be considered one of its chief patrons, ^readily consented to assume a character never before undertaken by a millionaire. The next day found him at the painter's studio, Delacroix placed a tunic round his shoulders, put a stout staff in his hand, and made him pose as if he •were resting on the steps of an ancient Roman family. In this attitude he was discovered by one of tho artist's favorite pupils, who alone had free access to the studio at all times. Naturally concluding that the model had only just been brought in from some church porch, and never dreaming the character assumed by him was far from the true one, he seized an opportunity when his master's eyes were turned to slip a piece of money into the beggar's hand. Baron Rothschild thanked him with , a look, and kept the money. The. pupil I soon quitted the studio. In answer to ' inquiries made Delacroix told the baron that this young man possessed talent, but no means; that ho had, in fact, to earn, his livelihood by giving lessons in painting and drawing. Shortly after the young fellow received a letter stating- th'at charity bears interest, and that the accumulated interest on tho amount that he had so generously given to one whom he supposed to be a beg-gar was represented by tbe sum of ten thousand francs, which was lying at his disposal at the Rothschild offices.

Kleptomania. To believe a French vrriter, there are no fewer than four thousand women caught every year in stealing- during their shopping expeditions, a habit euphoniously styled kleptomania. The number of titled ladies seized with this '. strange malady while examining the : fashions of Paris, he tells us, is incred- j ible. Among the most recent culprits were a .Russian duchess, a French countess, an English duchess and the daughter of a reigning sovereign. As a rule, these distinguished offenders are let off on the payment of a round sum for the relief of the poor; when ' the shoplifter is known to be rich, tie 1 sum extracted rises to as much as ten thousand francs. The police authorities consent to this sort of condonation. The Floral Jardiniere. Jardinieres of china in large flo_ral designs are ne'=v and effective. Nat- urallv colored pansics. pink and white acale'as, daisies and full-blown roses are used to hold palms, flwarf pmes and ferns. They are a charming addition to a drawing-room. In sending a growing plant as a gift it is a pretty fancy to place it in one of tho new floral jardinieres. She Hadn't. Darley—Did yon go through my trousers-pocket last night?

Rld«* and Muilc for Mourner*—Eccentric to the L*»t- The -world is full of cranks, as everybody knows, but the great .majority of them confine their eccentricities to their life upon this sphere. Pew of them make arrangements to keep themselves before the public eye after death, but the few who do so exhibit a fertility of ideas that would have been of great value to them in the advertising line during their lives. The latest exponent of post-mortem crankism was a queer old farmer of Kent, Saratoga county, this state, who recently departed this life, says the New York Advertiser. He left explicit directions in his will as to his burial, the most noteworthy being that he should have his favorite pair of rawhide boots as a part of. his grave clothes and that he should be taken to the cemetery in the family sleigh. His •wishes were carried out to the letter and he was whirled up to his last resting place to the accompaniment of jingling bells and buried with his boots on. A Brooklyn saloonkeeper, who was as jolly in life as he was fat, loft directions with his widow as he gasped "Good-by" to set aside one hundred dollars of his estate with which to provide beer for his friends on the dreary drive to the cemetery. The widow not only provided every carriage with fifty bottles of the cheering beverage, but drew on the saloon stock for two kegs- ful, which were emptied at the side of the coffin before it was taken from the house. Another saloonkeeper, a Staten Islander, whose place was a famous resort for fishermen and was himself an ardent angler, often said that he would never lie content in the cold ground. So he mafic arrangements to have his body cremated and imposed the dying injunction on his friends to see that his ashes were scattered about on the salt water he loved so well, from the head of the statue of Liberty. His wishes were religiously curried out and the funeral party returned to his old saloon and drank "his health," as provided in his will, Still another saloonkeeper, whose place was well over on the cast side of town and who was an inveterate fisherman also, had his ashes committed to the deep. lie was a member of a little fishing club that went dovrc in a tug to Komer Shoals every Sunday during the season. Ho found when on his deathbed that he had but fifty dollars beyond his cremation fees and he' decided to give the "boys" a good time with it. He ordered that the money be applied to the hiring and blocking of the tug for the first trip after his deatli and asked that his ashes be taken along and dumped overboard at the shoals while a schooner of beer was drunk to his memory. It was done a.s he ordered. A female keeper of a tramps' lodging house in Montreal is about the only woman on record who devised for herself a funeral on other than conventional lines. She left orders that all her lodgers be provided with a shave, a breakfast and a high hat with mourning ribbons, and that they all follow her body to the grave behind two brass bands. The bands were to play the "Dead March in Saul" on the outgoing trip, but to play "The Girl I Left Behind Me" all the way home. The churches attempted to stop the carrying out of her remarkable injunctions, but were unsuccessful, and the old woman was serenaded as per desire. The roost horrible of all these grew- Bome provisions was that made '"by a Virginia colonel, who died about twenty-five years ago, in Amelia county. He demanded, under penalty of cutting off from all his possessions, that his widow have him put in an open coffin in a clump of woods near the house, and leave him there for six weeks. Every morning and evening of that time she was to come to him and brush his hair and whiskers Luckily the colonel shuffled off his mortal coil in the middle of a very cold winter, so he "kept." Dis widow was able to carry out his wishes, therefore, and came into all his property. There are quite a number of cases of religious enthusiasts who have demanded to be buried in a standing position, so as to be all ready for the judgment day, and a negro in South Carolina was buried feet up because he believed the fiat earth would be turned upside down at the first blast of Gabriel's trumpet and he wanted to be ready right side up. People innumerable have had valuables or mementoes buried with them at their request, and a short time ago in France a dying woman had her pet cat killed so that it might be -buried in her arms. ^ —All the higher arts of desig-n are essentially chaste.
