I hnvo been reading and I supposo cverylxxly lins been reading too, about great criminal!) in llio newspapers. Tho boastfulness of the deteotivo and tho imagination of tho reporter havo com bined to raak'o Homo interesting read ing, but if you recall what you 'havo read you will find that very fow great crimen havo been committed. Ono or two professional forgers, a half score of burglars, a cluster o (.confidence men, and tho whole list is exhausted. Tho foot is thora is no such army of crimin als fcrtilo of expedient, ready of do vice, watchful of every chauco to break in and steal, as tho polico would havo you bollove. I was looking oyer tho criminal list tho other day ot tho convtotcd pro fessionals confined in Now "V ork state. Thoy wcro uumorous enough, but tholr crimes wcro contemptibly small. To make your Yidocq, you must hnvo first your great criminal and his great crime Tho American VUlocq, makes himself with theso two essentials left out; and having opportunity to talk with ono of tho alleged great crimin als, ho confirmed my belief in tho vis ionary character of these shrowd and clover rascals with no greater effort than revealing his own stupidity. I hunted up another, a professional who bas rcpoated his offenses sufficiently to entitle him to any other distinction than that of an honest man. I would mention that ho wears stripos now, ex cept that it might draw from tho valuo of his statements in tho minds of some who are too easily prejudiced. Any way ho is better authority than the po lice, whoso vanity in their own capac ity may bo a proper pride, but leads to so'mo mighty tall lying. ''Tho fact is that professional thioves and rogues are not numerous in any locality, and if crimo wore tho sole source of support for tho few hundreds who aro so classed most of them would bo hungry many times every year. Men who steal whenever thoy get a chance always have some other occu pation, and it is a fact tbst tho legiti mate one is moro profitable than tho illegitimate one in nine cases out of ten." Thus began my informant, "Wesley Allen, the pickpocket "But in this city there is a ast army of professional criminals," I said, "men who aro classified and whose industries havo special forms, implying cunning and originality." "My dear sir, you havo been reading tho newspapers or talking to detectives. Thoro isn't a dozen. If really olover men if men with a modicum of brains that belong to clever people wore to devoto their talents to roguery sooiety couldn't exist. Tho methods employ ed by thioves, for example, to attain tholr ends look very cunning and well planed to ono to whom they aro first revealed. But tako any ono of them and examine it and you will seo how flimsy it is. A sneak thief wants to got into tho till of a corner grocery. Ilis accomplice comes with a tape line and begins to measure tho sidowalk in front of tho door, or to measuro tho wall, or comes In a wagon and begins to throw out a lot of boxes. Tho gro cer steps out to inquire; is hold in con versation, asked to hold the oud of the measuro or pass back tho boxes; the sneak is in and away, and tbo trick is off. A saloon keeper is known to keep a pocketbook stuffed with money in tho inner pocket of his vest. The pick pocket knows it is a difficult place to touch. Two accomplices como in when ho is alone, both of them laughipg heartily ono with a tape measure. 'Well, that was a dead loss for me,' says ono. 'Set-'em up.' They laugh, ask tho saloon keeper to drink and ex plain that thoy were betting on tho girth of a neighbor The saloon keep er becomes interested; the more so as tho rounds are being called and then the loser wants to get even. A bottle of wine is staked and the victim asked to measure, the new bet being on his girth. Objection is taken to the vest; off it comes and the sneak thief a third party soon has the leather." "Now, that's t-rtful, certainly," said L. "No such a thing, it is most trans parent and simple. It couldn't succeed if it wero not that the victim is a fool. But theso are exceptional cases of such good planning as crooks can do. But, after nil, suppose a man of brains real brnius, such as you know plenty of wero to devoto himself to tho plan ning of ways to get other people's mon ey without an equivalent, and went at it with tho onorgy that men givo to the practice ot their profession or to tho pursuits of commerce, wheio would such schemes as this be? Nowhere. You hear of a great burglary. "She newspapers which report it dwell noon tho fact that it bad been carofully plan ned and that the house had been plot ted, for a diagram, which tho rascals had left in their flight, was found. What's to hinder any mau from learn ing every room and every door in New York city? There's tho builder's plans, the insuranco companies' plots and the building department's open files. A littlo watching and a good deal of guessing makes up tho rest of the burglar's knowledge. Of course, his 'tools aro of tho finest workmanship.' Haul Tho chances are ten to ono that thoy consist of a bar of iron, which be ing carried by a burglar is called a "jimmy;" a daik lantern, a copper ham mer, a chisel and a flask of powder and a handkerchief with holes in it to see through for a mask." "But thero are cases whero men have gono further than tnako a few hasty preparations; havo hired adjoin, ing stores and tunneled and burrowed into banks and vaults with infinite patience and labor."' "Bah! How many? You say ton and I trny one. Whatever yon say I will allow 10 por cent. off. But can on recall any?" "Well, tbo Covington, Ky., bank." "That's ore. You can't gq on. But thero havo been probably twenty rob berirs committed in that way In tbo last thirty years and nono of them amounted to very much in tho way of returns, outside of two or three.

M. nKKBK DIM, EXrillF.S ON THE Ol'F.nAT 1NO TAD I.E. Milville IlecRO Dill, a prominent business tunti of Somerset county, and Lrothcr of United States Marshal, An drug II. Dill, died nt tho Bingham House, rhllapelphia late Wondcsday nltcrnoon of lost week. Ho had como to tho city on Tuesday from his homo nt Aleyersdale, oomersot county to un dergo an operation by Dr. D. Hays Aguew for the removal of hemorrhoids lrom which bo had an tiered lor several years. Mr. Dill had been treated by Dr. Agnew n year ago for fissure. An operation was pcrlormod and tho patient experienced no bad effect from tho other which was administered. Dr. Agnew had mado an appoint ment with Mr. Dill lor two o'clock on Wcdnoiday afternoon, and went to tho botoi nt tbo timo agreed upon, accom panied by Dr. J. William White, who lias been his surgical assistant for many years. Thoy commenced work about a half an hour later. Tho patient was laid upon a table in Ins room and ur, Whito administered tho anrcsthetlc. Tho other used was known as "Squibbs" and is considered tho purest and best that is made. It was administered in tho usual way from a towel folded in tho shapo of a cono. In a fow mo ments Mr. Dill became unconscious nnd Dr. Agnew began tho operation. After the first hemorrhoid bad been tied and while the second was being operated upon respiration suddenly' ceased. Both physicians at onco turn ed their attention to restoring tho patient. Artificial respiration was cm ployed, electricity was used, tho body was flagellated with wet towels and all the usual methods to resuscitate were used. While tho patient had ceased to breatho the heart continued to beat and tho physicians workod untiringly until all nope was gono. Dr. Agnow said that in his ex perience of forty years as a physician and surgeon ho had administered ether in thousands of coses and never had an accident before. Ho considered other tho best and safest amcsthetia known and said that the patient's sudden death was something that no human fore sight or caro could havo avoided. Dr. Whito was much distressed over tho affair and stated that this was tho first instance in his practice that tbo admin istration of ether had terminated fatally. Mr. Dill had been successfully oper ated upon by Dr. Agnew one year ago for fissure. Ho took ether at that timo. His sufferings for some months bad imperatively demanded an operation ; thero was no other; way of relieving him. Tho operation was impossible without an anaesthetic ; tho safest known anrcsthetio was selected and was given in unusually moderate quantity, less than !ix ounces having been adminis tered altogether. It was given in the usual way and ono which has been em ployed by Dr. Agnow and Dr. White in hundreds of cases for many years without an accident of any kind. Tbo etherization was sufficiently complete in from ten to fifteen minutes to admit of his being placed in the proper posi tion., and the operation was begun. Within a few minutes he suddenly ceased breathing, having beon breath ing treely a moment before, no was at onco turnod on his back, his tongue brought forward, his throat explored for possible obstruction, movements of artificial respiration begun, flagellation and cold wet towels employed, upward friction of tho limbs used, electricity applied and the usual methods of re suscitation put into operation, but without effect. Although his heart continued to beat for thirty or forty minutes it was impossible to bring about the natural movements of breath ing, although efforts at resuscitation wero kept up unremittingly for an hour, or for some time after tho heart ceased to beat. It is evident in this that death was not from heart failure. The proportion of deaths that occur during etherization is variously estimated f rom 1 in 1,050 to 1 in 20, 000 cases, the actual average probably lying botween the two, and have hap pened in the practice of the most distinguished surgeons of all countries, although this was the first instance of the kind in the experience of Dr. Ag new or Dr. Whito. Colonel T, J. Gri meson, a prominent -I?....- I T LI! cuuuiuutu tur uiu vuiiuuiiuau uuinuia tion for State Treasurer, and an inti mato personal friend of Marshal Dill and his brother, was in tho room dur ing the operation. Marshal Dill re mained in the offico of the hotel await ing with sorao anxiety, but with no thought of danger, the result of tho operation. As soon as his brother be gan to sink he was summoned. He was terribly shocked and distressed, and had hardly reoovered his compos- uro when he left the city yesterday morning wun nis brother's body ao compamed by Colonel Grimeson. He blamed the surgeons and Dr. Aenow said that ho had received a severe letter from Marshal Dill, which under the circumstances, he did not attach any importance- to. It is only a fow weeks since Marshal Dill's father, an eminent Methodist clergyman, died and tho sons were much distressed by that ovent, Coroner Ashbridgo was not notified of tho death of Mr. Dill until Thursday afternoon. Dr. Whito called at tho of- fico and stated that Dr. Agnow had granted tho certificate of death under tho apprehension that as tho deceased had been under their care at tho timo of his death a Coroner's inquest would not bo required. Tbo (Joroner said that as tho death was not due to nat ural causes it was a caso that should be investigated by his office. Mr. Ash bridgo wrote a letter to Marshal Dill in whioh ho stated that while ho deep ly sympathized with him in his nfllict- lon ho was compelled to order a post mortem examination, and Dr. Formad was dispatohod to Lowisburg on the midnight train to make the autopsy. Melville- Heeso Dill was 40 years oi ago and leaves a wifo and two child ren. For many years ho managed large business interests in Union county, and of lato has been engaged in extensivo lumber operations in aley crsdale, Somerset county. Ho was master of his Mosonio lodge and ap parently strong and in excellent hdalth, and had no physical trouble except the ono whioh required the operation which resulted in bis death Better Than Vacation.

At tho ago of three years, in, 170-1, ho was captured by tho Indians, who killed his lather nt tbo samo lime. This was on tho banks of the Ohio river. For twolvo years tho hoy was kept among tho savages, but ho disliked them and escaped when ho was fifteen years old. no lound n white settlement nnd learn ed to talk his nativo language From that timo on ho gavo his lifo to Indian killing. In 1790, when tho Indians wero get ting scarce, Charles Brandon married a young woman named Mary Movers. tjho boro blm two children nnd diod, Ho thon married Fannlo Slasher. Sho boro him eighteen children, nnd died in 18S0. Brandon was then nearly seventy years old. When ho was five years older ho married Sarah Barker, who was only sixteen.

Tho separation lrom his wifo broko bis heart, and al though at tho timo ho was as agile, Btrong and aetivo as ho was when ho wns married bo pined away and died tho samo year tho divorco was ob tained. Ho then bad thirty-throo liv ing children. His divorced widow had hod tho caro of all of them, nnd she raised all that wcro young enough to need rais ing. Brandon had beon tho father of thirty five ohildron, but two died, ono a child of his first wifo and the other ono of the eighteen his second wife had borne him. The divorced widow moved to Moundsville, W. Vo., and tbo most of the thirty-three children went with her. Among them wero two Johns and two Charloses. Ono of the Johns nnd ono of tho Charleses wero tho third wifo's ohildron. Thero was a James who was old enough to go to tho Mexican war, whero ho was wounded in tho neck. When tho war of tho rebellion broko ont tho two Charleses, Sim, Evans, Josephus, Hi ram, James, Van Burcn, Jaoob, Abra ham, Alexander, David, Androw nnd Iteeso, of tho sons enlisted in the Union army, nil in Ohio and Virginia regi ments. Tho third Mrs. Brandon's John and Charles wero taken prisoners at Chickamauga. They were both put in Andersonvillo Prison. John died in nine months ; Charles was there twenty ono months and escaped. Peter was killed at Shiloh while his regiment. the Soventy-second Ohio, was making a charge All the other sons served through the war and camo home. Tho third wifo of the remarkablo old Indian killer, and mother and step mother of his remarkable family, still lives at Moundsville. Sho is seventy years old. Until three months ago sho was in destituto circumstances. Then she got a pension and $2,500 as her claim against tho Government. Sho is six feet in height, as straight as an arrow, as strong as a man, and cxceling nino out of every ton mon in powers of endurance. Only a few days ago sho walked to St Clairsville, twenty miles, in five hours nnd back again in tho samo time. She has only one eye. The other ono was shot ont about thirty years ago by ono of tho second wife sjboys. She had occasion to cor rect him. ne got his bow and arrow and shot her, putting out her eye.

It was a long time before Friday orao and I began to think ho was go ing to disregard my suramons, and was getting angry, whon ho suddenly put in an appearance. I explained to him what I wished to know, and without tho slightest hesitation he said to tho venerable arrow-maker: "Tell my brother all about tho poison ed arrows." "Well," said tho old man, "first wo tako a bloated yellow rattlesnake in August, when ho is most poisonous, and tie him with a forked stick to a stake then we tcaso him until he is in a groat rage. This is done by passing a switoh over his body from his head to his tail. When ho threshes the ground with bis body and his eyes grow bright add sparkle liko diamonds, wo kill a deer, antelope or somo other small animal, and, tearing out the liver throw it to the snako whilo it is warm and tho blood still coursing through it, Tho reptile will strike it again and again and pretty soon it will begin to turn black. When he tires, the snake is teased again and ho is induced to sink his fangs into the soft flesh until all tho poison has been extracted from him and tho liver is reeking with it. lie is then killed and tho liver lifted with a sharp polo, for so dangerous is it no ono dares touch it, Tho liver is left lio for about an hour, whon it will bo almost jet black nnd emit a sour smell. Arrows are thon brought nnd their i'on heads pushed into tho liver up to tho shaft. They are left sticking thero for about ono hour and a half, when thoy aro withdrawn and dried in tho sun. A thin glistening yellow scum adheres to tho arrow, and if it but so much as touches raw flesh it is certain to po'non it to death." I asked if Indians still used poisoned arrows. "No," ho replied "no man, Indian or whito man, for years past has been shot with theso arrows and thoy nro no longer made." He Signed His Hamo Backward. A gentleman in Washington who has had business relations with Oscar J. Harvey, tho Treasury forger, tolls an interesting story of Harvey's pecu liar signnturo. He says that Harvoy, in signing his name to oheoks and oth er business papers, invariably writes backward, beginniug with the word "Harvey;" ho next writes tho letter "J.," nnd then comes tho name "Osoar," which ho writes backward, beginning with tho letter "r." Tho gentleman says ho has seen Harvey sign his namo in that way moro than a dozen times, and that on each occasion tho not was accomplished with the rapidity of lightning, it boing plainly apparent that its owner had been in the habit of writing it thus for many years. Tho business man onco asked Harvoy for an explanation of his peculiar signa ture, but was rewarded only with a smile and a knowing shake of tho head.

Arkansavs Traveler, Hireling the Telephone. At-Fernbank, ten miles from Cincin nati, is the workshop and labratory of Harry B. Cox, a young electrician, who, though known to but few, is at tracting tho notioo of scientists and clectrioians in this country and Europe by his inventions, in which he is as prolifio and ingenious as Edison. ' His atest device is a trumpet to be used for telephoning at sea, on which he has been at work for some months. Tho invention is the outgrowth of his dis cover of the great distance an euboed or reverberated sound will carry, and tho discovery that Bpeaking trumpets, if made to givo tho samo fundamental noto would vibrato and produco the phe nomenon known in acoustics as "sym pathy." With this trumpet conversa tion in an ordinary tone of voico was carried on botween pirtioi four and a quarter miles apart. People sitting at their windowe or on their porches a mile away conversing in an ordinary tone could bo distinctly beard, and in two instances they wero told tho na ture of their conversation and admit ted that suoh had taken place. By listening to tho whistlo and tracing it to and beyond Fernbank to Law renceburg, Iud., it was found that the instrument has a well-defined range of twenty-six miles, that is, a load sound like a locomotivo whistle or the rumb ling of a train can be distinctly heard at a distance of thirteen miles m every direotion. Conversation was readily carried on between two men on high hills on opposite sides of the Ohio river, about four and a half miles apart. Tests made on tho wator showed that tho trumpet was even moro available than on land. Tho instrument will bo patented as soon as perfected. A namo has not beon chosen for it. Mr. Cox has a groat many other enrions nnd valuable device, both electrical and mechanical, but none as curious as his sea telephone, litigation Over Ifrs- Cleveland's Picture, Tho common uso lately of Airs, Cleveland's picture as an advertising oard is likely to load to several law suits against tho firms putting them out. Tho originals of tho pictures common on tli9 market wero copy righted by two .Washington photo graphers shortly after Mrs. Cleveland's marriage At first tho only advantngo reaped was from tho local sale of tho cards. Gradually, however an outside demand sprang up, nnd before this could bo mot orders commenood to pour in from nil parts of Europo for them. They have proved to bo tho most popular selling pictures of the day. To supply tho foreign demand, leading houses in London and Paris aro now striking, off copies of tho American originals without regard to tho rights of the Washington artists.
