AST VXKATC1CAL SON.
Cut His Father's Throat to Obtain Some
. Chicago, Dec. 15. A crime of sur
passing diabolism and dramatic sequel
took place to-day in a little tenement
on West Chicago avenue. Carl Holtz,
an aged widower, lived alone with his
son Paul, aged 16. To-night the boy
took to bed with him an old table-knife,
and after his father had gone to sleep,
raised up in bed and cut his father's
throat from ear to ear, severing the jug
ular vein and windpipe. The youthful
patricide then rushed to the West Chi
cago Avenue police station, and declared
that his father had attempted suicide.
When tne police, with a physician,
reached the house, the old man was still
alive, but could not speak. He had
crawled from bed, and on a piece of yel
low wrapping paper, which was bespat
tered with blood, he wrote in German,
"Paul Holtz did it." The paper was
the first intimation the police had of the
true nature of the affair. The doctor
bandaged up the man's throat, and to
the surprise of every one, he uttered a
few hoarse words. With his linger
pointing to his son, he said: "You
have killed me, Paul, but can never en
joy the money. God will punish you."
a tew moments later the old man ex
pired. The money referred to was $2,000

to the handing over of the beantitully '

A Pneumatic Rifle.
Paul Gifford, the Original inventor of
the Paris pneumatic-ixwt system, has
made a pneumatic rifle which is said to
le a wonder. It is dpscribed this way :
The weapon is much lighter tmin any of
the army rifles now in use. ltreseuibles

about a span and a half long and as thick
as a man's thumb is attached to the barrel
by means of a screw. This cartrige con
tains 300 Ehots.'which can lie discharged
as rapidly or slowly as a man desires.
At a recent trial the ball traveled with
wonderful accuracy and penetrated deep
into the wall of the shooting room. - As
soon as one cartridge is emptied of its 300
shots another can be screwed on the gun
in the twinkling of an eye. Mr. Giftbrd
says that the 300 shots in a cartridge can
be produced at a cost of aboif't 3 pence.

The Thought of Immortality.
If the soul be immortal it requires to
be cultivated with attention, not only
for what we call the time of life, but for
that which is to follow I mean eternitv :
and the least neglect in this point may
be attained with endless consequences.
If death were the final dissolution of be
ing, the wicked would be great gainers
by it, by being delivered at once from
their bodies, their souls and their vices ;
but as the soul is immortal, it has no
other means of being freed from its evils,
nor any safety for it, but in becomig
very good and very wise; for it carries
nothing with it but its bad or good deeds,
its virtues and vices, which are commonlv
the consequences of the education it has
received, and in themselves constant
causes of eternal happiness or misery.
It is told of Abbe Liszt that on one of
his concert tours through Germany he
was tendered a banquet at a small town
by his admirers. When it was found
that thirteen were seated at the table.
the egenral embarrassment was checked
by Liszt remarking : "Do Dot be alarmed
at such a trifle. 1 can eat for two per
sons." ' ' . '
