Spokane J? alls, April 13. A Review
special from Deep Creek Falls, thig

postoffice building was entered by two
masked men and the postoffice safe

and passed through from her sleeping
room to the middle door, where she was
encountered by the two men, who pushed

Mrs. Young's story is as follows: ,
About 1 -.60 I heard a noise in the

WORLD'S FAIR MATTERS.

Chicago, April 13. Publisher Scott
having declmeu to accept the presidency
of the world's fair board of directors, the
contest seems to have narrowed down
between Charles L. Hutchinson and Fred
W. Peck, and the stockholders trust each
one of these so implicitly that they seem
to be indifferent as a class to whom is
chosen. A statement of outside appro
pnations given out yesterday shows the
amounts already appropriated by various
states and organizations is $1,290,000.
The amount pending which will probably
be passed is $2,325,000, and other pros
pective sums bring the total up to the
sum of $5,730,000. Colonel Davis will be
back at his desk today, and will then

Course In the Congo Free State
tEW York, April 13. Still another
attack is made on Henry M. Stanley.
This time it comes from Colonel George
W. Williams, author of "Colorado
Troops in the Rebellion," and who has
been for some time in the employ of the
Congo Frefe State. In an open letter to
King Leopold, he attacks the govern
ment of the Congo, and says Stanley
grossly misrepresented the character of
the country. Instead of being fertile and
producive, it is sterile and unproducive,
nor will this condition of affairs change
until the natives shall be taught by
Europeans the dignity, utility and bless
ings of labor. Stanley's name, says
Williams, produces a shudder among the
simple folks. They remember his brok
en promises, heavy blows and vigorous
measures by which they were mulcted of

.New Haven, Conn., April 13. Pro
fessor C. A. Totten, of Yale, in. speak inn
of the publication of his recent mathe

some papers have published that T
predict the end of the world within this
century. They mistake that is their
error, not mine. I do not think r.ha. the
end will come for a million, years and I
have not made any prophecy about it at
all. What I did declare was that a
mathematical calculation, founded on
biblical truths, proved beyond pread

again before 1900. I don't mean by this

in 1899. I think that is a thousand

Pleasanton, Cal., April 13. While
boring a well in the Odd Fellow's ceme

heard a rumbling in the well. He light

thinking he could see what was making
the noise. A terrible explosion followed,
and the man was severely burned. The
rumbling proved to be a strong flow of
gas, which was ignited and caused the
explosion. The people of this town are
highly elated at the discovery.

SACRED MONKEYS OF INDIA. 1
They Have Things All Their Own Way "
and Cut Up Some Queer Capers. '
An English gentleman who has lived y
many years in India tells some queer stories " '
about the sacred monkeys that are a great "' ..
nuisance in some parts of that country. .
No one is allowed to molest them They .
runabout the streets, help themselves to
whatever they please at the shops, rob
orchards and gardens and play havoc gen- "
erally. To thrash them is regarded as a
misdemeanor, and to shoot a monkey, V s
might cause a second mutiny. ' . " 1
The gentleman had a garden where grew: .
delicious fruits. The sacred monkeys easily - T- -scaled
the walls and helped themselves -,V'V
They were not content with simply eating, ;
but amused themselves with throwing half. '
munched fruit at each other. To shoot . ' 1
these pests was out of the question, and to
hit them with ssones was impassible, a f
they easily dodged any missile that might.
be' thrown at them. An idea struck thai -Englishman
one day, and he at once pro
ceeded to carry it into effect, with great '
He got a large basket of the largest po- . ",
tatoes that were to be found and had them ' - ' v
boiled. When they were scalding hot he V .
had basket and potatoes placed under one '
of the trees. The monkeys were watching. "
these movements from the trees. Presently
every monkey seized a hot potato, and then,
followed the most unearthly screeches and .
chatte rings. A monkey will ne,ver let go ' .
any' article of food that he once gets hold
of, even if he has to die, and these monkeys, '
true to their nature, would' not drop the S
hot potatoes. ' -
They held them in one hand and thmi in
the other, and then they wonld take a bite- . ' '
and scald their mouths, and roll in the . '' .-
dust, writhing with pain, but never letting
the potatoes once-out of their grasp.. They
ate up the potatoes, and then disaoneared
over the walls and never returned.
The Englishman once witnessed a pa- .
thetic as well as heroic scene in one of the
city squares, in which the sacred monkeys ' :
were the actors. He saw a number of '' '
monkeys seated and standing in a large ,
circle, and a female monkey hugging and '
wailing over t he dead body of her baby,
that had just been killed by a cobra's bite. '
The other females were trying to console " ':
her by caresses, while the males appeared
to be in earnest consultation among them
selves, in the center of the circle was the - ' .
large cobra that had inflicted the fatal bite, - ' .
coiled and with head erect, watching the
enemies by whom he was surrounded. ''..
Suddenly a young and athletic male
monkay sprang into the arena? He care- s
fully approached the cobra, which pre- '
pared itself to strike. The monkey made -a
few passes, and just as the shake was
about to dart its head he sprang to one
side, and then over the cobra. This was
repeated so often and with such astound
ing rapidity that the cobra became bewil
dered, when the monkey seized the snake
by the neck and proceeded to ecrush its
head to a jelly by rubbing it on the ground
with all its might. The snake tried to
free itself by coiling around the monkey's
neck; but in vain; its struggles became
weaker and weaker nntil life was extinct.
When the snake's head had been reduced
to a shapeless mass the simian hero dropped
the cobra and executed a series of hops and
Up to that moment the other monkeys
had maintained the most anxious silence,
watching every movement of the combat
ants! with eager interest; The snake's
death, however, was the signal for the
most joyous chatterings and gambols.
They took hold of the conqueror of the
snake, patted him on the head, scratched ' '
his back, danced around him and gave
every manifestation of their great appre
ciation of his valorous achievement. The
poor mother carried about her dead babe
for two days longer. Chicago Tribune.
