orhich Attorney General William H
Moody is the head, federal grand Juries

eonnected with the packing companies,
There has recently been a remarkable

f heads of beef packing firms and
managers of departments. Some. It
has been annouueed, have gone on their
vraal vacations to Europe, others on
Business trips to Canada or South
America. It has been affirmed that
awne of the gentlemen wanted as wit
nesses tij the grand Jury registered un
der assumed names when they put op
at hotels in foreign countries. Al
though Inquiries on the subject have
tflcited the information that the trips
taken were customary with the ap
proach of summer. It Is said Chicago
has never known a period when so
saany beef trust officials and em
fdojet were away at one time before.

evidence obtained In tlie wirso of the
investigation shows violation of the In
junction, or attempts to evude its pro-
visions. Statements have been made
that the cattle buyers of the various
packing firms of Chicago have been ac
customed to hold meetings each morn
ing to agree on prices to be paid for
cattle, and It Is reported that evidence
lu proof of such statements Is now lu
possession of the federal authorities.
In both the investigations conducted
by the department of Justice and by
the Interstate commerce commission
most valuable information has been
obtained through stenographers for
merly in the employ of packers. The
case of one of these stenographers,
Mrs. Mary E. Marcy, Is especially In
teresting. She was employed six
months In the office of Armour & Co.
and eight months In the office of Swift
& Co. and while so employed deter
mined to turn the knowledge she ac
quired of the affairs of the beef Indus
try to literary account The company's
officials knew her simply as a stenog
rapher and typewriter rtmi never sus
pected that she hud ambition to shine
in the world of literature or yearned
to expose what she regarded as unjust
and cruel commercial methods. She
was intrusted with confidential corre
spondence, learning In this way the
cipher code In use between the pack
ing companies, and was successful In
preserving her shorthand notes and
making carbon copies for her own use
of many important documents. She
used the Information thus acquired in
a series of artrcles published In a Chi
cago periodical. When the federal au
thorities learned of her case she was
summoned before the grand Jury and
willingly submitted to it the valuable
information she had obtained while
acting as stenographer.

Mrs. May g. Topper, the splrltBalla-
tic medium whose seances have re
cently excited much discussion, has
been since January, 1904, the reader
of the organization known ss the First
Spiritualistic Church of Brooklyi Bor
ough, New York city. She has mysti
fied large audiences by the strange
things she has done when lu supposed
communion with departed spirits. A
few months ago she collapsed 00 the

son who bad committed suicide by In
haling gas. An alleged expose of Mrs.
'epper's methods has recently been
made by Harvey and Norena Teeter,
who are known In connection with
their lecture work. They charge her
with resorting to sleight of hand tricks
In the reading of sealed letters by con
cealing them In a flexible Bible, tak
ing them In a bark room, opening and
reading them and then replacing them
on the stand upon the platform. They
also declare that It is just as easy for

There have been tnuuy rumors relating
to the conquest of the captain's heart,
but this time there Is no doubt of the
brave officer's surrender. To make the
romance of the affair perfect It Is a
case of surrender of the south to the
north, the captain's couqucror being a
northern girl, Crlsclda Hull, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. George, 11. Hull of

General Joe Wheeler, who has often
pleaded for atiolttlon of sectional Hues,
says, "If anything were needed to bind

The marriage of the bride's parents
also represented a union of north and
south, for Mr. Hull comes of Puritan
stock, while Mrs. Hull Is the daughter
