What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

He says he found out on the first prayer meeting night after he began to work In a factory, for he tumbled Into bed and to sleep aud forgot what duy It was. Probably the most colossal mistake !n recent criminal annals was mnde by a New York burglar the other day. He went Into a dressmaking establish ment tn broad daylight, where twenty Women were working and tried to plunder the premises. As a simple matter of course and a natural conse quence the women fell upon him with hat pins, Jabbed him till he closely resembled a porous plaster and banded him over to a policeman. The records In even a city like Chicago teetji with captures of foolish burglars by women single handed. What fate could he ex pected for the man who deliberately Invaded a house tilled with twenty women, every one of the twenty hav ing her hat pin handy? A girl In a New England factory Wrote her name several mouths ago on a bolt of cotton. Itecently she received • letter from a woman in Arizona say ing that the cloth had been bought by the Government, and was being cut up for garment* tn an Apache Indian school. It Is but a few years ago that the Apaches thought more of taking scalps than of schools In which shirt- making is done. While the mill girl's act elicited thle striking comparison, It waa an act to lie unhesitatingly con demned, A gift's uame bo represents herself that to have it tightly handled about In writing, or In public convey ances, or in the mouths of strangers, reflects meretriciously upon tier char acter. llad the bolt of cotton fallen Into unscruplous hands, the letter Bent from Arizona might have been any thing but pleasing to the thoughtless recipient.

But n great many Innocent peo ple, when threatened with arrest, es pecially when found In w hat they knbw to be compromising, though per haps easily explainable, situations lose their self-possession and ran. To send a bullet In pursuit may sometimes cost the life of a valuable citizen. Even If none but rogues run away, however, it Is not for the policeman to, put life In peril by the use of bis revolver. The only circumstances where Its use Is Justified are those where the police man’s own life or that of another Is In Immediate peril from a ruffian whose arrest Is sought. The peril must not be merely fancied or constructive, but actual and deadly. Otherwise the otfi cer Is amenable as much as a private citizen for any loss of life which may follow the use of his weapon.

They were making great fun this way when Mrs Row land, passing along the corridor on her way to call on Mrs, Browning, who lived on the second floor, appeared. \Oh boys, hoys,\ she cried, laugh ingly stopping her ears as they raced toward her, \you must, you positively must, be a little quieter! Go Into your own rooms, dearies, and don’t come out again until I return.\ Ten mlnuteB later she was nearly frightened out of her wits. Looking out of Mrs. Browning’s window Into the light shaft, which furnished light and air to all the apartments In the building, she saw her son Teddy sus pended In a sort of Improvised sling, evidently patterned after the harness used by the janitor when cleaning windows, and helped out by sugges tions obtained from a traveling acro bat whom the boys had recently seen. A large bow knot had been tied In the rope used for hanging out clothes on tbe roof on washing days, and In tbe lower loop of this bow Teddy rested as If in a seatless swing; the smaller loop, passing around his waist assisted him lh retaining an unsteady sitting posture. At a small pantry window high above, alternately raising and lowering bis brother, by means of an Improvised windlass strangely resem bling a mutilated clothes wringer, stoou Oliver, grinning with delight Teddy, to his Indignant disgust was nnceremonlnosly banled through Mrs. Browning’s window, and his mother, accompanied by her hostess and Mrs. Stacey, who lived upon the seventh floor of the bnlldlng on tbe opposite aide, and who had called to retnrn a book lqaned her by Mrs. Browning, harried upstairs to look at the Ingen ious contrivance. “Please, mamma, let It stay,” pleaded Teddy, beseechingly; \Just for n little while, any way; it might come In handy, yon know.\ ‘Ob, yea.

Tbs Soared (hefitfbt to a f t win pared hung lu order to swing his body across the court. Twice he failed to reach the wludow opposite him, and the baby, Interested lu the floor of the court, did not look up. The third time he approached her she saw him and crowed with delight, stretching' out her baby hands toward him nud trying to rise to her unsteady tittle feet. But Teddy was swifter thnu ehe. With a desperate lunge he flung him self against the window sill, let go his hold of the rope aud suatehed the child Just as she tottered on the slippery edge of the polished stone. The end den aud violent movement, combined with the jerky action of the rope, which swung sharply across the court again on the rebound, upset his bal ance completely. Tbe eager spectators at the wlndowr high above, their hearts still thumping wildly from theaexctte- meut of the baby's danger, gasped with apprehension as the boy, firmly dutch Ing the baby, fell heavily backward, slipping out of tbe loop on which he reBted entirely, and dropping to a hori zontal posture. But Teddy was game. “Wind me up quick!” he shouted to Oliver, and up he came, with only the loop around his waist to keep both him aud his charge from the stone floor below. The baby, who fancied the whole affair a new- kind of play, kicked, crowed and Bqulrmed In his arms. But the loop held firm. Teddy managed, after a few efforts, to catch hold of the other loop with his feet, and presently he was being drawn In through the Row land window, red In the face and breathless from the partially Inverted position In which the upward trip had been made. Mrs. Stacey snatched her baby and fell to wildly kissing it, and the other ladles hugged Teddy, In spite of his objections. “I’m all right, mamma; Indeed I am!\ he cried, wriggling away from bla mother's affectionate embrace, \and yon needn’t cry, I’m sure. My Jacket split when the rope slipped, but you can mend It, I know, and we won't ask you to let us keep tbe swing now, if yon feel so badly about H. But I told you It might come In handy. And say, mamma! Can't I have a piece of Jelly cake?\ I'm hungry, too,” remarked Oliver, plaintively, \and really, mamma, I was tbe one who first thought of fixing op the ropes like that, and I’ve done most of the work, anyway. Can't I have some Jelly cake, too?\ Before Mrs. Rowland had time to answer Mrs. Browning was trying to kiss both boys at once, and langhlng heartily a* she did so. \You dear, fanny, blessed little an- bels!” she exclaimed, drawing them ont Into the corridor and downstairs with ber, “I’vs got a great, big, lovely jelly cake In my pantry, and I’m going to make yon eat every bit of It!” Teddy and Oliver, being simple, nat ural, Jolly urchins, said not a word to any one about tbe afternoon's doings, but the story spread through all the building, and they bars bad many champions since that tons.

The lighthouse was established In 1841) and was rebuilt lu 1801). In earlier years, when there was much shipping carried on from piers, the light was of great local value aside from its use as a coast light. This new light, which Is of the fourth order and much more powerful than the old one, Is both a coast and harbor light. The location of the light so far b ack from the water's edge was responsible WAt’KKO Atf LIOHTBOUSH. for at least one beaching over twenty years ago, when lumber was received at a pier In front of the lighthouse. The captain of a small schooner coming over from Michigan with a load was told he could sail up and knock at the lighthouse door. Arriving at Wauke gan late at night, be tried to do this, but found Mmself beached, with the light still afar off. When morning came the townspeople saw the schooner high and dry and were hilarious when they learned bow It had happened. The lum ber was unloaded and the schooner, scarcely hurt, was launched again. John WTlllams, a «ne arrned veteran of the civil war, kept the light from 1865 until his death thirty years later. To a Horseless Carriage.
