to the tug Pioneer, which is now com

NEW YORK, July 17. Prompt retribu
tion was meted out tonight to Samuel
Brooks, a bather at Audubon Beach,
whose foolhardy mischief imperiled the
lives of three young women. Brooks was
rescued by the police after hating re
ceived a terrible beating at the hands of
hundreds of people, who had seen "him
rock a boat until It was capsized and Its
occupants thrown into the water.
Carrie Bauer. Nellie Hatten and Ag
nes McLaughlin, each aged about IS
years, were rowing in tho vicinity of
many bathers when Brooks and a com
panion, who were in the water, ap
proached, and, heedless of the protect of
the young? women, climbed into the- boat.
Taking positions .at either end of the
craft, the men bogan to rock the boat,
and although the thoroughly terrified
girls begged the Intruders to desist, con
tinued until the boat was upset.
Bathers, attracted by the plight of the
screaming girls, swam to their rescue,
and after a struggle brought the three
ashore In a semi-conscious condition.
Meanwhile Brooks and hip companion
swam away, and the latter escaped.
Brooks was less fortunate and. when he
reached the shore, an infuriated mob that
had witnessed his performance set 'upon
him with umbrellas.and isticks and might
have killed him but for the- timely inter

King Oscar Talks Calmly of Separa
tion of Kingdoms.
BERLIN. July 17. Dr. Hugo Ganz, cor
respondent of the Frankfort Zc'ltung, has
bad an interview with King Oscar, of
Sweden, at Stockholm, during which hi?
majesty said he admired tho way in
which the Norwegians won to their side
all the European publicists.
"The wrong remains wrong," said the
Xing, adding that the Norwegians had
surprised him by the suddenness of their
acta. King -Oscar denied that he had
precipitated the crisis by declining to ac
cept the resignation of the Norwegian
Cabinet, for the Norwegians themselves
bad declared that whoever' accepted a
portfolio would cease to be a Norwegian.
The correspondent remarked that he had
heard only words of respect for tho King
in Norway, to which his majesty re
plied; "For my part. I "have forgiven the Nor
wegians, and hope to God that the Swe
dish people will also remain calm, for It
would only be hanging a millstone about
our necks to restore the union forcibly."
The King also said that appointing a
Swedish Prince to the' Norwegian throne
would certainly bo the simplest solution
of the difficulty, but the result would be
distrust in Sweden or Norway. Every
time public opinion either in Sweden or
Norway was displeased with the sov
ereign's acts the cry would be raised
that "the son does this to please tho
father." or "the father does this to please

Nets are not allowed to be spread
across the ship channel. The Greek at
Taylor's Sands showed no light. Pilot
Harry Emken was taking down the
Sandhurst, and found several nets so
laid that he had to choose between
grounding the steamship and cutting

General Plet Cronje. the commander of

Spectacle which appeared In Charleston
during the present year, has been very
much pained by the criticisms of his
descending from his glorious height as a

protests that he is not a member of the
military profession, that he fought as a
patriot and not as a soldier, and after
his people were defeated and he suffered
imprisonment at St. Helena he returned
to the Transvaal and found his country
"black with cinders and stained with
blood." He and his poor old wife were
in the depths of despair. He was too
old to follow his plough, too old to earn
a living even if the opportunity had been
offered, and too old to "strike another
blow for our liberty." The Boers llid no

his own behalf is pitiful, and it will

add anything to the distress of the great
Boer fighter, but we would only say that

Graham and Glover's Great
Feat in Niagara River.
START FROM WHIRLPOOL
Equipped With Lifebelts, They Go
Through Ttaging Water and
Come Out Safely Glover
Submerged In Eddy.
NIAGARA FALLS. N. Y.. July 17.
Carlisle D. Graham, ot this city, and
William J. Glover. Jr.. ot Baltimore,
successfully swam the lower rapids of
the Niagara from the American side of
the whirlpool to Lewiston this after
noon. Tho distance of four miles was
covered in 26 minutes by Glover The
start was made at 4:02 P. M. from Flat
Rock, which is on the American side.
The swimmers did not venture in the
upper rapids, where Captain Webb lost
Both men wore life-belts and inflated
rubber rings around their necks. From
the start Glover took the lead. He en
tered the rapids a minute ahead of
Graham. Until the Devil's Hole was
reached the swift current and roaring
rapids had the swimmers in their
grasp. At that point a swirling eddy
caught Glover and he was down nearly
two minutes. - His life-belt saved him.
Graham by this time had gained on
Glover, and when the two men reached
the end of the rapids. Just above tho
suspension bridge at Lewiston. there
was but little distance between them.
Swimming in the swift, smooth cur
rent was hard for Graham, but evi
dently easy for Glover.
At :2S o'clock Glover was pulled up
on the dock at Lewiston. He was
dressed and about 15 minutes later
telling his story. Graham was taken
to a hotel in a wagon and did not leave
bed until late In the afternoon. Neither
of the men was Injured.
Graham had swum the lower rapids
twice before. He is about 55 years of
age, while Glover is 35 years old.
STRANGE NEW DISCOVERY
The Polecat, Long in Discstccm, at
Last Comes Into Ills Own.
A happy inspiration is worth millions
In these latter days, when the world Is
striving to Increase, the output of luxu
ries and to reduce their cost- Such an In
spiration, passing through the brain of
one Stephen Patton. a farmer living near
Hattiesburg. Miss., bids fair to make him
the John D. Rockefeller of the perfumery'
trade of the world. Like ail great dis
coveries, it Is perfectly simple, and every
body will ask: "Why didn't some one
think of that before?" The story of Mr.
Patton's discovery Is told In a special
dispatch to the Atlanta Constitution:
For eeereral yean ilr. Pa Hon has been en
Kaiced In the burin ess of raisins polecat on
a awampy piece of cround adjacent to his
farm, the pelts of tae' animals selllne' for
.from 75 cents to ti.SO-eaca. according-to
color. A few weeka aro Mr. Patton estab
lished a cfhkken farm near.bla polecat fwaisp
and a few daya later the fowl became "deathly
sick. He commenced placing- coal oil" In their
food, thinking they were afflicted with the
pip. The next batch of egg gathered tasted
lltfe coal oH. Mr. Patton then commenced
reasoning' from came to effect, and wax seized
with an Idea. He commenced feeding hU
polecats oil of lavender, bergamot and orange
Sewer. The new food had the desired result.
It not only changed the nauseous odor of the
polecat, but actually produced a powerful
Land delightful perfume, and further experi
ments have revealed the wonderful commer
cial possibilities of the discovery.
One drop of the Said emitted by the polj
cats will produce a quart of perfume, and
by careful selection of the food of the little
animals Mr. Patton haa succeeded In produc
ing three varieties of perfume.
Not only do we rejoice in this discovery
on-account of the cheapening of an Indis
pensable article, but because tardy Jus
tice is at last awarded to an humble but
indefatigable animal. The polecat through
all ages has been shunned through no
fault of his own. He has been an object
of contumely and ridicule, and it is not
surprising that at times his patience has
been sorely tried. An outcast, whose pres
ence has always been noted but never
welcomed; a social pariah, in spite of the
fact that his disposition Is affectionate:
his advances repulsed, his preference for
human companionship derided wc say it
is no wonder that he has sometimes in
sisted upon being noticed.
Every dog has his day. and the pole
cat's Is here. Thanks to Mr. Patton's
discovery, this really beautiful animal is
to become the pet that he has always
yearned to be. A living1 sachet bag. an
animated perfume- retort, he will be found
in every boudoir, responding delicately to
variations in his diet as the chameleon
reflects the variable colors of his environ
ment. This, it appears to us. will be the
most attractive result of Mr. Patton's dis
covery. Naturally. Mr. Patton haa al
ready laid plans for manufacturing per
fumery on a gigantic scale, and he de
serves the prosperity that will be his If
he escapes the trusts. But many persons
will prefer to purchase their own per
fumery factory in the shape of a pretty,
affectionate and faithful polecat.

RED FOX AND BEES.
Stolen Honey Brought the Former
One afternoon, while Red Fox was
hunting fleldmlce In a little meadowy
pocket half way up the hillside, his
eager nose caught scent of something'
much more delicious and enticing in
its savor than mice. It was a smell
of. warmth and sweetness,, with a pun
gent tang: and Instinct assured him
confidently that anything with a smell,
like ..that must be very good to eat.
What instinct forgot to suggest, how
ever, was that anything so delectable
was likely to be expensive or hard to
get. It is possible (though some say
otherwise!) to expect too much of in
stinct. Fieldmice utterly forgotten, his
mouth watering with expectation, the
young fox went sniffing hungrily over
the turf, following tho vague allure
ment hither and thither, till suddenly
it steamed up hot and rich directly
under his nose. A big black-and-yel-low
bumblebee boomed heavily past his
ears, but be was too busy to notice It,
His slim pink tongue lolling out with
eagerness, he fell to digging with all
his might, heedless of the angry,
squeaking buzz which straightway be
gan under his paws.
The turf over the little cluster ot
comb was very thin. In a minute
those busy paws had penetrated it.
Greedily Red Fox thrust his nose Into
the mass of bees and honey. One taste
of the honey, cnchantingly sweet, he
got. Then it seemed as if hot thorns
were being hammered Into his nose.
He Jumped backwards with a yelp ot
pain and astonishment: and as he did
so the bees came swarming about his
eyes and ears, stinging furiously. He
ran for his life, blindly, and plunged
into the nearest clump of Juniper. It
was the best thing he could do. for
the stiff twigs brushed off those bees
which were clinging to him, and the
rest, like all of their kind, hated to
take their delicate wings Into the tan
gle of the branches. They hummed and
buzzed angrily for a while outside the
enemy's retreat, then boomed away to
repair the damage to their dwelling.
Within his shelter, meanwhile, the
young fox had been grovelling with hot
anguish, scratching up the cool fresh
earth and buryfng his face Jn it. In a
few minutes, finding this remedy in
sufficient, he crept forth and slunk mis
erably down to the brook, where he
could rub his nose and eyes, his whole
tormented head. In feed, in a chilly and
healing mass of mud. There was no
better remedy In existence for such a
hurt as his,. and soon the fever of the
stings was so far allayed that he re
membered to go home. But he carried
with him so strangely disfigured a
countenance that the rest of the family
regarded him with disapproval, and he
felt himself an outcast.
The Mischievous Woodcock.
No other bird makes a fool of man
quite so often and so successfully as
the woodcock. It can hardly be without
some appreciation of his joke that he
dashes down the length of a line of guns,
almost knocking off the hat of each in
turn, while the timid shooters who are
not sure of their next-door neighbors
throw themselves prone on the ground
and pray that this may be the last wood
cock In the covert, or In the world.

typhoid fever for fourteen -weeks. She
had a good "physician who carreid her
safely through the critical stages. When
he left, nothing remained to be done ex
cept to btnldnp her strength, which was
very feeble, and he gave her some pre
scriptions for that purpose. Hero, how
aver, she met with disappointment.
" I took the doctor's tonics," she says,
"for two months after I had recovered
from the fever, but they did net do me
the good Hooked for. My strength cams
back so slowly that I scarcely seemed to
be making any progress at all. Just
then I read in a book thrown in oar
yard some striking testimonials showing
what wonderful blood-builders and
strength-givers Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are. I got a box of them soon after
this and after I had taken only about
half of them I could see a very great im
provement in my condition. When I
had used np two boxes, I felt that I did
not need, any more medicine. I have
remained strong ever since."
