A Bpokin Mtry.
Spokane, Jan. 29. The most myster
ious attempt at suicide in the history of
this city was made today. An unknown
young man entered a lodging house and
secured a room. Soon after a shot was
heard, the door was broken in and on
the floor, weltering in his own blood,
which flowed freely from a ragged wound
- in hia forehead, was the outstretched
body of a young man, apparently about
28 years old. At midnight, be was still
alive, bnt unconscious, and physicians
say be cannot recover. Who the man is,
where be came from, or what motive
prompted him to do the terrible deed,
are yet unknown. Before the commis
sion of the rash act, he destroyed every
vestige of paper on his person that
would lead to his identity, and only a
small pile of smouldering aahes was lefl.
The bnrned outline of a photograph, ap
parently of a man, was in the stove, but
when touched it cjumbled to . ashes.
The unfortunate person was attired in a
light coat, vest, trousers of a dark striped
material, black sateen shirt and a blue
necktie of a flowered pattern. On bis
feet were a pair of laced calf shoes with
cloth tops. On the bureau was a black
plush cap, while on the bed was a brown
frieze overcoat. In his pocket was over
$10 in cash, while in his vest pocket waa
a small silver watch, with a Swiss move
ment. He is smooth-shaven, with the
exception of a small light mustache, fair
. com plexioned, about S feet 9 inches in
height and weighs about 150 pounds.
He has soft hands, which shovr he did
not belong to the laboring class. Some
-cards of the Franklin- house, San Fran-
- cisco, found in his pockets, seem to in
dicate that he was a runner for hotels.

TRICK WITH A BANK BILL. -
A Man Who Planned a Good Joke on Hll
A man walked into a hotel near .the
Grand Central station 'early the other
morning, having just left a train. He
ordered and ate a hearty breakfast and
then, instead of giving his waiter the
money to pay the check and waiting
for the change, as most men ao, ne
'tipped" the waiter and carried tne
bill to the cashier. In his Sand, says
the New York Tribune, along with the
bill for his breakfast, he held a ten-
"I wish," he said to the cashier,
that you would . pin a slip of paper to
this bank bill, so that you can identify
it, and then put it away, please, until
I call for it. I'll be back to-morrow."
The cashier looked rather aston
"Yes," said the other. "I only want
to leave it here as security for my
breakfast. I'll come back to get it.".
"But it's a good bill," said the cash
ier. "I'll accept it and give you tne
"No, replied the stranger. "I don't
want you to do that. I want merely to
leave this bank bill in pawn. I want to
pledge it. Give me the price of my
breakfast on it, and to-morrow I'll re
"Oh, I see," said the cashier, with a
smile, "you want to keep this bill be
cause it has some peculiar value through
association. It's a sort of a souvenir,
"Well, not exactly," was the answer.
"You see, I have been over in Boston.
I went nearly broke there. When I
was coming away some of my friends
insisted on lending me some money. I
tqld them that I should not need it,
but they declared I could not pull
through. One of them forced ten dol
lars on me."
"'I'll tell you what I'll do,' I said.
You take down the number and date
of this bill. I'm oming to Boston
again next week. Now to prove to
you that I don't need this ten dollars,
I'll bet you that I bring the same bill
back with me, I'll bet a dinner for us
"They took the bet, and that is why
I want to put this bill in pawn. Pretty
good joke on them, eh?" he said, with
a wink. "I spend it, and yet I keep it.
Take good care of it for me," and he
went out, looking like a conqueror.
About five minutes later the cashier
took out the bill, pinned the slip of pa
per to another one of about the same
color and appearance, and slipped them
back into his casbrdrawer.
"I wonder who'll have the joke on
him, now?" he said to himself, and then
he whistled softly. . -
COINS OF LITTLE USE. '
The Gold Dollar Had No Utility, While
the Three-Cent Piece Served a Purpose.
To one who has not given the sub
ject thought it would seem that the
most useless coins ever issued by the
United 'States were the silver three
cent pieces. They were small, as thin
as a sheet of manilla paper and before
they finally disappeared from circula
tion they came to be regarded as
Although there is much to be said
against the annoying little coins, says
the New York Herald, they were, as a
matter of fact, of far greater utility,
as far as circulation is concerned, than
another coin. This is the gold dollar,
which, experts at the sub-treasury say,
has never served any useful purpose.
Said Maurice Muhleman, cashier of
the sub-treasury, recently:
"From the mutilated condition of
the gold dollars sent here for redemp
tion it is positively shown that the
public do not regard them as coins.
Their only use appears to be for ban
gles, necklaces, watch' charms, scarf
pins and the like. It is doubtful if one
in a thousand ever really passed in
"With the three-cent silver piece, it
was different. When first coined, the
country had nothing in the shape of a
coin between the huge copper cents
and half cents and the silver half
dime. The small coin was hailed as a
blessing, and became popular at once.
There was an excellent reason for its
"Strange as it may seem, it was not
provided for by a coinage act, but by
an act revising the postal rates. This
law . lowered the cost for transmitting
the unit of weight for letters from five
to three cents. It was deemed advisable
by congress thereupon to issue a coin
of corresponding denomination. The
coin was of great utility, and circulated
rreeiy until the advent of the nickel.
