Through my art, I am able, to read-that destiny'along general lines." These words were spoken to a reporter for the STANDARD by Madam Caldwell, the astrologer, who has been looking Into the horoscope of many of Sterling's citizens of all ages and conditions during tbe past week or more. The Madam is located in rooms at the Wallace House. She is an aged English lady, who has practiced her art for more than forty years. As will be seen by the above remark, she la a pronounced fatalist, ; "I do not attempt to go into details," the Madam continued. "For instance, when I was born, my grand-father, who was an astrologer, read my horoscope and said that in my old age I should travel to a foreign land. I came to America less than a year ago." ___MadamjCaldwell has been liberally patronized during her stay In Sterling. She has pointed out the destinies of mano of Sterling's .society ladies and gentlemen. v • ', Madam Caldwell is a woman, of considerable education acd is welll informed. Among her patrons since her residence here have been many ladles of the best families in Sterling. The destinies of individuals, as read from the positions of the stars, are given fluently and in good language. As before stated, Madam^ Caldwell is descended from -a family of astrologers and she is thoroughly conversant with her art, She-cites many instances in which her prophecies have been fulfilled.-; All horoscopes are read In private. .;•'•'. ; *•'.'•''••• ..'' .:..:•. - .:!•'• "Madam," ventured-, the reporter, "you have never seen me previous to this time, and if good, fortune; favors you, you will-not soon again Save the opportunity. Now, can you tell me something of myself without knowing the day and date of my birth ?" • •' - ; "I can'say nothing definite concerning 'your—destiny,^—announced;- the madam. "You are a young man of refined tastes, good habits, honest, honorable, industrious;and inclined to be fiomewhatehy. You-—.". "I beg your pardon," came the involuntary interruption. "You know" my occupation?" . V • ; "Oh, yes, but understand, me, I'm not practicing my art. I know this by in- tiution, a sbrt^of Sherlock Holmes instinct, as Jt were.'.' «. At this juncture there ensued an animated discussion as to whether or no Mr. Sherlock Holmes was killed at : an opportune moment and as to whether Dr. Watson deserves to be censured of commended for bis part in tbe passing hence of the greatest detective. Tbe madam; expressed herself as believing that Sherlock Holmes had fulfilled his mission on earth and that he died when his time.came. She also expressed some doubts as to the ability of Mr. John Kendrlck. JBangs to vbrlng him back to earth through the "Pursuit of the House Boat on the Styx." / i "Madam," said the reporter, "I was born on Saturday, December— r , 18-—. How am 1 to wind up my career on this yale of tears ?" The madam threw up her hands in horror as she said: ' "Young man, you were born on black Saturday, Saturn was in tbe ascendent and the sign of the moon bodes no good. You will lead a terrible life in its later years and you will die a tragic death. You can lie, Bwear and steal. Your future is horrible. You; will commit a most repulsive crime and you will—." . .: ; "Excuse me. Madam," weakly ventured the visitor, "I have already over- sUyed my limit. ''Anyhow this game's tooBtlff for me." /.-, '>•<... Information Can btt Obtained by rtendlng Them. Information aa to one of the many avenues through which the money of the WestiB drawn to and by the East, can be obtained by a perusal of the annual reports of eastern Insurance companies, now in course of publication In the Chicago papers. It will there appear that the premiums received per annum in the State of Illinois by thesb companies are from two to six times the amount paid for losses in the State. For.instance, the Buffalo Commercial Insurance Company reports having received from Illinois during the year premiums ' amounting to §8,878.20, while the amount paid for losses throughout the State for the same period aggregated 31,912.20, or less than one-fourth ttie amount sent out of the State. The > Agricultural Insurance Company, of Watertown, N. Y., reports as received 8113.577.92; paid back for losses, 847,071.29, or less than one- half. These are merely typical of doz eno of like Instances. The many societies in this State, having, as ad j tine- tlve, an assessment system of life Insurance, serve In a large measure, to keep the money at home, which other- wlse'.would be also exported for life. With the capital owned In this State, it la surprising that a greater amount of fire insurance is -not_f urnlBhed__by_ domestic companies. 'In this field, reliable companies, located at suitable points throughout the State.might safely furnish such insurance with the p'ub- Ho advantage of stopping this constant drain of capital from the State. THE VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA. KILLED BY THE CARS. MANN STRUCK BY A NORTH WESTERN FREIGHT. The Vetarnn Mall Carrie* Met ;i}«»th In a Horrible Manner While Croufng the Tra*k Wednesday Afternoon—Be lived But n Short Time. ' Wallace Mann, who haa for many years transferred the mail between this city and Rock Falls and also acted as carrier between the. pest office and mail trains, was struck by engine -No, 497 at the North Western station at 4:15 o'clock Wednesday afternoon and mortally injured. He died in the baggage room of the station a(;6:04 In the evening. The immediate cause of his death was a blow on the back, of his head, which shattered the skull. His right foot and ankle were also badly crushed under the wheels; the latter wound was the only one received from this source. Mr. Mann arrived at the' station 'at hla usual time and transferred the mall sacks from the wagon to the truck, which he used to carry them to the train. He Imme'dlately started west on the platform, pushing his truck before him toward thecrosslng.wherethe mail and baggage trucks crossed the* north track.

A number of the railroad employes noticed him moving toward tbe crossing, but thought that he would not attempt to cross before the train had passed. ' When too, late they saw the old man push the tiuck upon the , track and knew that he was doomed. Engineer Coleman saw the impending horror and blew the engines' whistle, but all to no purpose, Mr. Mann was between the rails in the center 'of the track, while the truck bad passed over when he was struck by the pilot. He was carried off his feet, falling backward on the pilot, and it is supposed that it was then that he received the terrible wound upon his head. The .engine carried him up the track for thirty i'eet, when be slipped from the pilot to the ground. When the train was stopped, the victim was found jammed against the north side of the south platform. The' right leg had been badly crushed near 'the ankle by the wheels of the cars. The wheels of the eighth car had passed over the foot- before the train was stopped. Dr. Frank Anthony was summoned hurri.Uy and arrived a few minutes after the victim had been carried into the baggage room. A slight examination showed that Mr. Mann could not be relieved and that his death was 1m- ineut. He lay in the baggage room oti a stretcher until his death occurrd at 6:04. Dr. Anthony remained with him un til death took place. With the excep tlon of the .crushed foot and a slight abrasion under the left eye7the~~body r showed no marks of violence, the fatal wound on the head being on the back part. • After death had taken place the body was turned over to Undertaker Fred Geyer, of Rock Falls, who removed it to his place of business,, where it remained until after the Coroners' jury had viewed the remains 'this morning.
