AN AMATEUR MURDERER
Good Reason for Telling the
Story at Tills Time.
. Now that (ho chances are that I shall
be nominated for Congress nest elec
tion, I hare been looking ever my past
life, and I can not help but admit
there are many incidents In it that if
unexplained will seriously jeopardise
my chances of being at the head of the
pells. Supposing that in the heat of
the contest my opponent suddenly
charged tue with being under arrest
for murder, and that, too, on my own
confession, I Terr much fear that

that would enable me to clear myself

do that, because the chanro would be

ever else a politician mar do, he can
never, never tell a lie. lie is like the
curly-headed toy of the poem, or
George Washington, or a newspaper
in that respect.
So I rather vhoose to tell the facts of
the matter while the publio mind Is
reasonably rain and then hare this
account reprinted in the form of a cir
cular durinjr the contest if the charge
it at that time brought against roe.

The ceremony took a great deal of

lowed was over it was very late.
found that all conreyances had stopped
for the night. I tried to engage a cab.
but as I lived a long way out. the cab
bies showed great reluctance in accept
ing so distant a fare. The nieht was
clear and the walking good, bo I struck
out and determined on the way to see
some unfamiliar parts of London at an
unfamiliar time. I buttoned my over
coat arjout me and started out on foot.
After I had gone several miles through
the silent town, meeting no one but
an occasional policeman or some
ragrant like mvseir, 1 began to regret
that I had not put up at one of the
down-town 'hotels. An unaccountable
thirst took possession of me, and this
was the more remarkable as I had done
what I conld during the dinner to
quench it. Oi course at this hour there
was no place open where a tired way
farer could refresh himself.
Looking down a side street I saw i
bright lisht stream out on the r ad.
and I said to myself that I could likely
ret at least a glass of water there.
I found this place to be apparently
public, house. It stood, on the corner
and had large windows covered on the
lower half with red curtains through
which a person conld not see, but to
fudge by the sound of revelry within
there was no lack of something to
drink. It seemed strange that any
place should so defy the law, but I was
thirsty and went in. The moment
opened the door there was an instant

Ar-etrfl'-yh bar was erected to the right

barrels of beer. A stal wait barkeeper
was filling glasses from these barrels
without the aid of the ordinary useful
and ornamental beer pump.

"Well, you" seem to be having all
' you want here.
"Oh, we seem, do wer And you
want to make sure, do you? Now,
we've had enough of your company.
Haven t we, lads? Tbere'was a roar
of assent at this and the beer mugs
rattled on the deal tables. The bnrly
man strode to the door and ooened
wide. As he did so there appeared to
- be a move among the assembly to as
sault me, but the man held up his
band and said, anthoritativoly: "Not
hero, lads." "Now," he shouted,
turning to me, "you qet outf"
I never bandy words with a man who
is much larger and 'stronger tham my
self, and the speed with which I got
out on the pavement rendered futile
his good-n at ored attempt to assist me
out. I heard the door bolted and the
hnbbnb renewed with greater fierce
b -es than before.
I walked around the corner and stood
a moment looking at the ruddy win
dows wondering what the meaning
was of such a reception. Even if I had
tumbled into a private gathering,
which seemed possible, the desire for
a eool glass of beer ia not looked on
by the average Englishman as putting
a person beyond the pale of civil treat
ment. It is a yearning they generally
appreciate and sympathize with.
As I stood there meditating on the
circumstances a side door opened and
a woman head appeared. Looking

Before I got around the corner I no

me cutting for it they followed, but
not with as much haste as they would

had turned the next corner they were

.4 Simple Method of secarlnc Refreshing
nd Cninterrapted Sleep.
I had frequently noticed that when
engaged in deep thought, particularly
at night, there seemed to be something
like a compression of the eyelids, the
upper one especially, and the eyes
themselves were apparently turned up

This invariably occurred, and the mo
inent that, by an effort, I arrested the
course of thought and freed -the mind
from the subject with which if. was en
gaged the e3'es resumed their natural
position and the compression of the
'ids ceased. "
Now, it occurred to me one night
that I would not allow the eves to turn
upward, but kept them determinedly
in the opposite' position, as if looking
.lown ; and. having done so for a short
time, I found that the mind did not re
vert to the thoughts with which it had
been occupied, and I soon fell asleep.
I tried the plan again with the same
result; and after an experience of two
years I can truly say that, unless when
something really annoying or worry
ing occurred, I have always been able
to go to sleep very shortly after re
tiring to rest.
There may occasionally be some diffi
culty in keeping the eyes in the posi.
tion I have described, but a determined
effort to do so is all that is required,
and I am certain that if kept in the
down-looking position, it will be found
that composure and sleep will be the
result. Chamber Journal.

One marked feature of litn Franc-lnso
I especial Interest to F.teiii visitors
Is the Chinese quarter. There arv suid
to be 800,000 people In the city, of
whom about 30,000 are Chinamen. The
umber, owing to the restrictive legis
lation by Congress, is steadily dimin
ishing, and the oltlisens look forward
hopefully to the time when the Chinese
will cease to be a disturbing factor in
their population and Industries. Un
der the care of an experienced guide,
acquainted with the language and peo
pie, wo made an evening vMt to China
town. We noticed several Joss-houses,
where were all the paraphernalia of
heathen worship. These places are a
seniroe of revenue and the privilege of
keeping them. It Is said, is sold to the
highest bidder. Here are the altars,
the Incense, the burning lamps, the Im
ages and the worshipers, but In them
all we saw no evidence of reverence or
of religious feeling." Some of these
temples are decorated with elegant
woods, earrings, screens, bronaes, im
ages and hangings of golden embroid

was a banquet kali which, we wore
told, was the Chiuese Delmonlen. Hera
dinners are given by the wealthy mer
chants and others to their friends or
to distinguished visitors. ' A banquet
seemed just to have ended. Musicians
making a horrid din, singing women
with most unmusical voices, young
girls and men gambling with dominoes
or other devices, are in various parts of
the rooms. A lordly Chinaman re
clines upon a richly upholstered chair
and smokes his fragrant cigar with an
evident air of self-esteem and self-sat
isfaction. In one corner is a luxurious
ouch, on which recline two elegantly
dressed Chinese. On the finger of one
sparkles a large and exceedingly bril
liant diamond. Between them Is a
lamp. Euch has the opium pipe, and
one is in the very a t of preparing to
smoke the drug which, while it yields
delicious unconsciousness, saps the very
foundation of her.lth and moral char
acter. We partake of a cup of fragrant
tea and sweetmeats, for which we pay
around price (the Chinese know how
to charge), and go on our way. Two
atures of Chinese life are patent to
us as we walk lite street, first, tne
woman slavery, and second the gam

Visiting the mission of the Methodist
Episcopal Church on Sunday, wo saw
at the services nineteen women and
girls who had been rescued from this
slavery, and are sheltered, educated
and Christianised by the missionary
and his assistant. As we passed
through a narrow street our guide
called attention to men standing guard.
These were sentinels watching at the
doors of gambling dens, ready to give
warning at the moment of danger.
The doors are iron-clad, and on in
specting several we discovered the
marks of the sledge-hammer, where on
previous occasions the police had
broken in. In one square, on the right
and on the left, there must have been
two doaen such places, and perhaps as
many pitiful women slaves peering out
of their little grated -windows. These
things are all known to the authorities.
Their openness more than Justifies the
report that hush-money is paid to the
police. Cue can not but conclude that
the Chinese are an undesirable popula
tion, not merely, as the average Cali
fprnian will tell you, because he works
more cheaply than the American,
sends his money out of the country
and brings leprosy in, but, more than
all, he is a moral leper, corrupt and

harbor him and daily see and tolerate

The trouble generally is that the
breeder is too anxious to have his young

LEARNING TO SWIM.

Learning lo swim requires Intellect
ual as well ns physical effort; the form
er Is rarely uscl. and the. consequence
is that it sometimes takes months, and
often years, to learn. The great
troullt in learning is th nervousness
that every one f-cls at first about get

forts are used in keeping; the head out
The experience of the writer In teach
ing lioys to swim has convinced him
that this is wrong. A cowl swimmer
should be able to swim under water as
well as at the surface, and tbe first
step ,in learning should be to get ae
customed to having tbe head under
water. The lenmcr should at first have
all fear taken awar. and then tbe rest
is eay. Hie writer has taught quite
a number -of boys to swim, aud In
many ca they have learned at the
wry first lime trying. His method is
ss follows: Take the learner into the
water, chiar water if It can be found,
tbout waist deep, so that he knows that
he can recover his footing at any time
he chooses. The first effort should be
to hold the breath and submerge the
face, keeping the eyes open, or better
still, if he can do it at first, submerge
the-whole head. This shou'd be prac
ticed until nod-fficulty is experienced

ing the water from the month and

There need be no fear of injury to the
eyes or ears. 1 hen the learner 'should

plunge boldly under the water, and
make the best of his way to it by swim

and fixed upon the point selected. In
almost all cases, his mind being re
lieved from fear, he will instinctively
adopt the methods calculated to accom
plish the end desired, while, on the
other hand, a nervous effort to keep
the head out of water fixes the mind
upon that alone, and the effort is made
in that direction, rather .than in learn
ing to swim. '
Some Instruction fn making the
stroke, however, should be given. The
finger ends should be brought to
gether at the breast, with the thumbs
side by side between the palms of the
hands and level witn their upper
edge; with the hands in this position.
the arms should be extended to their
full length, when the backs of the
hands should be rolled inward, bring
ing the thumbs down, until the backs

Important movement in learning to
swim, and this is made by sweeping

hands rapidly around until they touch
the aides, when they should again be
brought to the breast ready for an
other stroke. There are few readers
who have not seen the movement of
the frog in the water, and the aim
should be to Imitate it in the move

stroke the movement should be slow;
