He wm' at once laid out by a bul- kt from Che plitol of one of the desperado"*, which itruck btm above the heart, killing him Instantly. The bank was then ranxacked and all the money In the cash-drawer, some $2,300, wa« taken. An attempt was made to open the Ufa, bnt In this the robtwrt were foiled.

A poase pursued the robbers, overtook them, lynched the leader and took the other two to Fort Walhita. The money was recovered. TOO OUD TO GO UNGUARDED. An Oetog*n>r1aa Blt»« at • Swlndlng Scheme 810,000 Worth. PrrrenuKO, Fa., Jan. Si—William Mur. doch, 82 years of age, a gentleman ot considerable means and ft bachelor, was Saturday aftarnoon made to* rlctlm of the boldest and probably thrtwiWt swindle ever perpotratec in this city. On Bmithfleld street Mr. Murdoch was familiarly accosted by a middle- aged gentleman of fine appearance. Mr. Murdoch failed to recognize bis companlon 1 bat accepted nn Invitation to accompany him to his office, near the Baltimore & Ohio station, on Grant street, where he would be presented with a fine volume of the history o: Plttsbnrg. On arrival at the "office, confederate seated at a table was introduced, but the "History of Plttsbnrg" was yet at the binder**, - - •; • The conversation tamed to nambllng and lottery tickota. Mr. Murdoch was made to believe that his friend held papers that would draw a prize of I30.UOO, but $10,000 was needed to secure It Mr. Murdoch Immediately wont to the Pittaburg bank of Commerce, drew 1:0,000, handed It to the •windier and the latter, together with his punfsderate suddenly disappeared. Deteo- Ure* are still hunting for the "office'' and Murdoch 1 ! "friends" with no prospect of finding them. Mr. Murdock Is so excited and confused that he is nnablo to locate the room he was In, or describe the swindlers, A KENTUCKY GIRL'S INFATUATION.

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Jan. ia.—Grandma Garfleld died at the Garfleld homestead at Mentor at 5 o'clock Saturday morning. Her death was like a peaceful - falling to sleep. Eliza Ballou Gurflold was bora Sept. 25, 1802, at the foot of Mount Monadnock, No Hampshire, and married Abrain Ghuflald, of Watertown, Mass., in 18li7, coming to Orange, Cnyaboga county, O., 1834, wjien he eldest child, Thomas Gar- fleld, DOW of Grand Rapids, Mich., was 6 years of age. Bhe was a woman of strong sense and spirit, and had a singular capacity for managing and educating children. Her care and energy produced one of America's greatest public men and carried thq family In resp'.ctable poverty to tha point whore It could make its own way. Jamoa A.

HOW THE ESKIMO DRIVER MAN AGE3 HIS TEAM OF DOGS. • Tbe ZiotiB; Rleds of the Kinnep»too<i—Fat« terns In U»e by the Trader* of Krux» «h»tk» and Alaska—Northern Siberia. The McCllotock Model. Kskimo dogs hare «wch a harness vrith loopa that pass artrani the nock and un_der ea<;h leg, uniting on tbo book ant fastened to a long trace of sealskin about a third of an inch wide. The traces are of various lengths, BO that when hitchet to the sled the do^s can spread out like a fan. They nre gnlcied by tha voice of the driver, whose comniancts nre tnforcot! with a whip, the handle of Which Is about eighteen inches in length, and the lash from elchteen to thirty feet long. The dops in Siberia are harnessed in pairs on ei*her side of n long llnoUf walrua skia and are trained to obey thn driver's voice,. The driver controls the movements of the sled with a stout stick shod with iron, which he uses as a brake. In crossing rough Ice the Kinnopatoo Eskimos, of Hudson Bay, use a sled about eighteen Inches wide and from thirty to forty feet Ions. This is intended to ride across the hummocks with a much steadier motion than a short sled, which Is constantly pitching about, and, under such circumstances, very hard to draw and extremely ilifllcult to handle. The long Bleda of the Klnnepntoos glide very smoothly .and rapidly over rough ice, and are easily manBged. Tliey are made with solid plank runners, nometitoea spliced to secure greater length, and are shod with moss and iced. IN SIBERIA AXD ALASKA. The Russian traders and settlers In Kamtchatka and Alaska have several patterns of sleds. The one upon which heavy loads are drawn is a trestlework of strong wood lashed with rawhide thongs. It if very light, runs smoothly and la not easily broken. At Petropanlovskl, in Kamt- chatka, I also procured a small sled of basketwork, which was made' somewhat In the shape of a large saddle, with very htgh pommel and croup. It is designed to carry one person only, who sits astride ol it and rests his feet on the runners. This can be used only for light work and on short rapid journeys, for it has no place wherein to carry any load. The sled used by the tribes in Northern Siberia combines the excellencies of the long sled of the Kinnepatoos, the trestlework Bled of -the Russian traders an4 the McClintock.sled, tised by mostly all British explorers. It Is made with thin, broad; runners ot wood shod with strips of jawbone of the whala or a sort of hard, driftwood fonud on the northeastern coast of Sibexio. The bed, or platform is supported t>y uprights let into and lashed to runners. THff M'CLINTOCK SLED. ' The sled most approved by modern explorers of Arctic North America is known as ^tho_McC'lintock_slecl;" and was designed and useU by, A"drnlral~S[iFXebp61d McClintock, of the Royal navy, on all his Arctic journeys. It is made with runners of hard wood, with uprights and crosa pieces of the same material mortised and riveted, and the runners, shod with hoop iron, are bent up front and rear so that the sled can bo drawn equally well with either end in front. My experience with filed* of tM3 pattern,"has been that though, perhaps, excellent where men are used in the harness, they are not good dog sledi They are also liable to break where the lateral strain is great on the parts that are are mortised together, therefore their use Is cot advisable on long journeys. . Besides the various sleds already described, I have seen musk ox, reindeer, bear and seal skins temporarily used for that purpose, and after the snow melted and the floods subsided in Central Siberia, I have also enjoyed rest for my weary limbs on heavy sleds drawn by bulls over the muddy and slippery land. With such a large variety to choose from, I have no hesitation in expressing my unqualified preference for all purposes of hard work In the land of Ice and snow for the Tchouktchis 1 driftwood sleds, both large and small, which combine the greatest amount of strength and elasticity with the least weight, while at the same time they are less likely to bo broken, and when brokenj more readily repaired than any others I have used or seen. The model can scarcely be Improved upon, but the driftwood used by those poor savages in the absence of other material might advantageously be, replaced with tough young hickory or other woods from more temperate clitnates.—Wflliam H. Gilder. U. S. N., in The Century. Railroad Men's Superstitions. "Talk about superstitions! Railroad men are as superstitious as they make them,' 1 remarked an old engineer; as he was oiling his engine, - "I have as' niuch faith in my machine as I have in a human being, and she acts aacranldly sometimes. Oh, yes, she has her spells. Sometimes she will make steam lik« a daisy. At' other times she won't steam at all 'I can't account for it. There's lots of superstitions among the boys, and <you can bet they believe In them strongly. . Take .that which gives three/accidents following one another, everybody believes that. "I'll tell you a peculiar circumstance, though. On the^ Erie they had an old sngine years ago 'known as the 328. She lad the reputation of beltfgthe worst Inan- klller on the road, ar.d hardly-a week ?assed that she didn't have an accident to ler record. The men became so much afraid of her that they refused to work on ; ier, and the officials were in a quandary. At lost in despair they sent her to the insquehanna shops, rebuilt her, changed ler number and turned her loose on the eastern end of-the road. She kept up the same capers until she got as bad a reputation as she had before. Men refused to work with her, and,ojie4ayjt leaked out that she was the old 233. That settled it, nobody cared for a place on her. A short ime afterwards she was ditched and inured so badly that she was almost in )ieces. No effort was made to put her ogether again, and she was consigned to the scrap heap. Her brasses, etc., were gradually used up until the mere shell was left, when she was told as old iron." —Buffalo News.

The beer drunk by the challenged, "in re spouse" is cot allowed a "double debt to pay." Probably some craven soul in the pas 1 devised the plan of saving his brains anc his pocket by making the same beer which he drank in response to one person also serve the purpose of a challenge to an other.

Such Insults as these can naturally only be wiped out with—beer;' and according to the gravity of the offense the greater is the'quantity required.

Oakey Hall was a significant Illustration of the power of a mustache. -• Ho wore when mayor of the city a long, drooping, becoming "mustache. In an evil hour he was induced to go upon the stage and appear in a play called "The Crucible," which told very pertinently his own story, drawing a parallel between his course as a servant of the city and that of an unjustly suspected and severely punished clerk, who was falsely charged with stealing from a bonk In which he was cashier. In the flrst act Mr. Hall appeared, as was his custom, with his mustache. In the next act he was a convicted prisoner, in convict's dress, face clean shaven. The Park theatre had never seen an audience such as was there that night. All the Judges, a!l Mr. Hall's bar associates, all his political friends and social chums, every newspaper man of prominence and a great army of society folk. Everyone wished the actor well. Every one applauded as the curtain fell on the flrst act, every one felt his heart grow heavy as lead and sink as though it were a plummet In the sea, when, unmasked, Hall stood before them, the lines about his mouth indicating the very agony of his soul. Honest tears fell that night on unaccustomed cheeks, drawn from sympathetic eyes by the vividness of the anguish depicted on that man's face, and nhgulsh which had existed for months, but hod been hidden by hla long (mus- tache.—JoeHoward in New YorkGraphlc.

"A notice which I saw the other day, that Messrs. Funk & Wagualls are aboui publishing a foe simile edition of the 162J foMo edition of Shakespeare, reminds me of how Edwin Forrest bought his 1628 copy of Shakespeare," said a Philadelphia gentleman at the Hoffman house one evening. "I was connected with the auction house of MrThqmaH & Sons, In Philadelphia, for a number of years, and For? rest used to come in the store a great deal and patronize the hook Bales, .He seldom did any bidding himself, but used to tell Mr. Jennings, of tha firm,: and a life lonjt friend of the actor's, to buy certain books for him. He never left any limit to his bids, bnt always said simply 'buy them.' If the auctioneer thought a book was • bringing mneh more than its .value, and la Mr. Forrest's, interests let It go, the big actor would storm and rave the next tuna he came In, and declare that be would never buy another book In the place if his orders were not carried oat to the letter. "But what I started to tell you was about the famous old 1028 edition of Shakespaare. You know there are only a i few copies in the world, and they are of great valus, of course. Well, we had a copy for sale one day, and it was so well advertised, not' only to this country, but else where,, that agents from libraries, in England and other conjatf Jeg crossed the ocean to buy it The day Before the sale Forrest walked Into the store and said to Mr. Jennie ga: " 'I want thatfihakespeejro. Buy it,' " 'How high will you gof asked Mr, Jennings. '..•,. " 'How high* I don't know and I don't" care. Buy it, I want it.' "Then Forrest stalked out without say ing another word. ••- The next day, when the big folio was .put up for sale, there was some lively bidding. , The starting price was $100 by an Englishman, and it was not long before it reached $700. " 'Seven hundred and ftfty dollars! 1 at last shouted the Englishman who had started the book at $100. " 'And 800 I have already,' said the auctioneer, with a smile. ."•Who did you get tho bid fromf I don't see any one else bidding now,' said the Englishman. " 'A gentleman left the bid with me. 1 " 'Who was itf <" 'Ned Forrest.' ' '"That settles it,.'said the bidder. 'If Forrest wants that book there is no use bidding against him. .'He'd give $50,000 tor it rather than not get it I'm through bidding.'. :"The auctioneer tried to get another bid, but without success, and at last his hammer fell and the Shakespeare belonged' to Forrest The actor was delighted the next day with, his prize. H« took it to hfa mansion on North Broad street and had a glasscase made for it It was placed iH this cas« open at the title page and no one was allowed to touch it Fort-eat had a fac-fllmila copy which he read.
