How She Lost Her Maid.
Clara Bello, in one of her notable
Speaking of humbug, a Fifth
avenue belle's maid, a trim pretty
creature, suddenly disappeared recent
ly: and it was a wonder, because
the girl was well paid in proportion to
her good looks—for it is deliriously
swell now to have a pretty body ser
vant She had not seemingly been
dissatisfied with her work or wages.
Her employer feared that some senti
mental harm had come to her, and
charitably went so far as to hire a pri
vate detective to hunt her up. Where
do you think he found her? She was
an advertising exhibit in a hair wash
establishment There is a boom on n
that industry. Phenominally long
haired women are posed in the win
dows of stores where hair tonics are
on sale, and competition is hot.
The comely maid had luxuriant tresses,
which grew so heavily and rapidly
that she went periodically to a hair
dresser to have them cut short.
"How much wages do you get?" he
"Twenty-four dollars a month," she
"I can get you double that," he
said, "and nothing at all to do except
to be admired. Oh, dou't be alarm
cd—there's no harm in it. Messrs.
Blank and Co., the well-known makers
of Cerulian Glory, want to boom their
stuff. You are just the girl they de
sire. You will have your hair shaved
close. Then they will show you free
ly to their customers, telling them
that you lost your hair years ago by
fever, and had given up all hope of re
gaining it; you have tried many per
parations in vain; they are goiug to
experiment on you. Your hair grows
fast and fine—it is on view from day
to day—it becomes a marvel—the
fame of it spreads by word of mouth,
and by the time your head has re
gained its usual beauty they have
sold 1,000 extra bottles of Cerulian,
and you have received three months'
extra wages, See?''
She saw; and that was how the
Fifth avenue belle lost her pretty

A Daring Train Robber.
A Lake Shore Messenger Shot,
Gagged and bound, and the
FRANKFORT, N. Y., March 31.—Ex
press Messenger Leake, who was rob
bed between Clark's Mills aud Frank
fort last night, reached here about mid
night and was able to proceed to the
office of Drs. Skiff & Richards, where
his wound was dressed. He was shot
iu the upper part of the right arm, the
ball passing around the shoulder, caus
ing an uuly wound. The doctors prob
ed for the ball, but were unable to lo
cate it. Leake endured the operation
heroically, without chloroform. He
was weak from the shock aud loss of
blood, but walked to the station and
took the 3.30 a. m. train for Albany, on
his way home to Sharon Springs. He
stated to a reporter that soon after his
train left Clark's Mills a man entered
his car through the side door, which he
shoved back, saying as he entered,
"Throw np your hands."
Leake did not realize for a moment
what was up, and failed to comply
with the demand. The intruder there
upon leveled his revolver at the messen
ger and shot him. Leak fell to the
floor of the car, and his assailant said :
"Now, you, when I tell you to
hold up your hands again you'll do it,
won't you ?" The assailant then pro
ceeded to bind the hands and feet of
Leake, and put a gag in his mouth.
One of his legs the robber tied to the
safe. The desperado then took a bunch
of keys from the pocket of the messen
ger and unlocked the safe, which he
rifled of its money packages. The a
mount secured is believed to be between
S7OO and SBOO. The robber left the car
at the Delaware,Lakawanna and West
ern railroad crossing. Before leaving
the car the robber said to Leake:—"lf
you say anything about this I'll come
back and kill you." The messenger re
plied: "You wouldn't rob a man and
kill him too would you?" "Yes, I
would,"said the robber,as he left. Leake
tried to free himself, but did not suc
ceed. At Uticahis car was opt-ned and
he was freed from his uncomfortable po
sition. At this place it was decided
that he had better stop over and have
his wound attended to. The messenger
says his assailant was a large, strong
man, wearing a mask that hung down
over his chest* His hair was cut very
short at the back and his hands were
callous and dirty. i

SERIOUS AND PERHAPS FATAL
BOILER EXPLOSION AT ERIE.
Five Men Injured, Two of Which
are so terribly Burned that their
Lives are Despaired of.
ERIE, Pa., March 31.—A serious and
perhaps fatal boiler explosion occurred
this morning in the l>oiler works of T.
M. Nagle, in which Edgar L. Sturte
vant, of Cleveland, Ohio, inspector for
the Hartford steam boiler insurance
company; Patrick Kelly. William Mc-
Cloud, James Welch and A. L. Murphy
of this place, were injured. The lives
of the first three are dispaired of. A
hydraulic test of a twenty-horse power
boiler has just been made and it was
fixed up for the purpose of getting UD
steam pressure. The gauge marked 140
pounds and Inspector Sturteyant was
looking into the fire box when the Hue
plate gave way .and superhead steam
rushed out, enveloping the Inspector
and Kelly and McCloud and burning
them most frightfully. There is not a
spot on Kelly's body as large as the
palm of his band that is not raw.
