WOEKING FOR M'KISLEr-
MCKINLEY REPUBLICANS OF OHIO
One Hundred Thousand Personal Let
ters to be Written by People of
Fond Dc Lac, Wis., Feb. 26. At the
an ti-tramp convention, the following re
port of the ways and means committee
was adopted. The experience of various
lacalities under the present conditions,
shows that while some tramps would be
honest laboring men if they had the op
portunity, the larger portion of them are
determined to live on the public without
work ; that tramps as a whole are a nui
sance and a danger to private families, a
needless expense to the public and a
means of corruption to public officers.
Experience ahows that comparatively
little has been done to remedy the
tramp evil by private individuals or or
ganizations ; that the enormous and un
necessary bills against the counties
rolled up by officers in tramp cases, by
means of the fee system, can be largely
prevented by courageous county boards,
and that the proper use of the work
house will drive away tramps from that
locality. As the reeult of this experience
and our discussions, we have not settled
all parts of the tramp question, but we
have agreed on the following resolu
tion: Resolved, That the system of remun
erating public officers for public services
by fees should be abolished.
Eesolved, That the workhorse or some
Other judicious system of labor for pris
oners, including tramps, should be uni
Resolved, That other methods of meet
ing the tramp evil, including methods of
prevention as well as of correction de
serve the careful consideration of this
conference at future meetings, and we
urge all city and county authorities and
philanthropic individuals to carefully
investigate the many interesting experi
ments which have been made with, the
tramp problem in various places, among
which we especially name the Brown
county workhouse, the Dane county jail
and the Rescue mission in Milwaukee:
also the Provident wood yards in many
cities, and the work of the anti-tramp
society of Ann Arbor, Mich. And we
recommend the methods of the latter so
ciety for adoption in all cities of moderT
Lost the End of His Sose.
San ' Fkakcisco, Feb. 26. William
Hannigan met with a peculiar accident
yesterday which cost him the end of hisj
nose. He has attented all the masquer
ade balls held recently and consequently
lost a great deal of sleep. When he en
tered a barber ' shop at Sixteenth and
Yalencir streets, be wae drowsy. He
dropped into the barber's chair and
called for a shave. The barber proceed
ed with all good grace, but observed
while lathering Hannigan's face that
William had fallen asleep. Being an in
dustrious barber be concluded the situa
tion did not demand cessation of work,
and being a gentle barber, he did not
care to disturb the slumbers of his cus
tomer. Everything went along pleas
antly until the razor began operations on
Hannigan's lips. Suddenly Hannigan's
fists shot out right and left striking an
imaginary foe. The , barber tried to
jump out of the way, but Hannigan hit
the razor and drove its keen edge

what had happened. There was a hasty
explanation and then Hannigan picked

hospital. The surgeon stitched it on. In

Massilion, O., says:
There Is a movement on foot here to
induce every intelligent person in Stark
county to write at least five letters to
that number of friends in outside states
urging them to go to the primaries and
work for McKinley delegates. It is
reckoned hat 20,000 people should send
100,000 letters within 10 days, and as
each correspondent will ask his other
friends to write similar letters to other
friende, the Scheme will be seen to be
another manifestation of the endless

New Yobk, Feb. 26. A dispatch to
the Herald from Rome says ;
The Journal Don Marcio, the organ of
Signor Crispi, states that the dervishes
are about to repeal the invasion of Ery
thera of 1894, advancing against Keren,
Adingri, Godelflassi,Amacking, Italy's
weak garrisons, intending them to join
their ally. King Menelek. The new
reinforcements, in face of this new
threatened calamity, are insufficient.
The Fanfulla announces the sending
of 16 battalions of troops.
King Humbert in accord with Signor
Crispi, is resolved to obtain victory
without loss of time. He will tomorrow
decide who shall succeed General Bara
teri. The fact that Menelek is threatening
Adiqualii causes new anxiety. It is
feared that he will entirely surround Ba

Bliss Klngsley Accomplished Much During
Her Journey In Africa.
Miss King-sley has explored the Came-
roons region, H est Africa, and her ad
ventures proved both interesting' and
exciting". During" a canoe journey up
the Og-owe river the canoe wss upset
nearly a dozen times and the intrepid
lady explorer and her party of natives
were thrown into the water..
But perhaps the most disagreeable
experience was encountered in the
J'ong-we country. The Fangwes are
cannibals, and are one of the few-tribes
in Africa which eat their own dead.
The people were friendly toward Miss
Kingsley, but she had great trouble
in preventing- them from killing" and
eating" some of her servants. She did
not come across one burial place in the
Fangwe country; but she found that in
most of the native mud huts pieces of
human beinga were being" kept, just
as civilized people keep fresh meat and
other eatables in their larders. . On one
occasion when Miss Kingsley was turn
ing out the contents of a sack to try
nnd find out the origin of a sickening
smell, hands, feet, eyes and other hu
rnan remains tumbled out on the

Associates of the Shark.
A small fish called the pilot is nearly
always found with the man-eating
shark. Each shark is accompanied by
from five to seven (always by an odd
number, it is claimed) of these little
vassals, and while his sharkship seems
to be incessantly looking for something
wherewith to satisfy his voracious ap
petite he never eats these little pilots,
though they keep very close to him.
Another frequent associate of the shark
is the remora, or sucker fish. Nature
on the top of its head. By means of
this "sucker" it attaches itself to the
under surface of the shark and is car
lied by it wherever it goes.
