HITTING THK ALIMS.
Close of the Second Week of tho Hen
dricks Murder Trinl.
The second week of the famous mur
der trl:U emlixl on tS:turt1uy nrter
noon. The jirftsecution httd n. lively
Fiirprlse on hand for the defense on
Saturday, nnd some more of the same
kind may be expected today. Am was
noted in these eillubins from il.-.y to l;iy
last wevk, the defense v."tit heavily
Into the alibi business, and seemed to
have no difficulty In Katherltr; lotvtupr
a cloud of witnesses, mostV re! itlvcs of
the accused, who testified that the
latter were somewhere else than in
Wllkes-narre on the evenlntr Hanv-y
Relck was murdered. How well this
case has been managed by the prosecu
tion did not fully appear until Satur
day, when they ecgoimeneed putting in
their evidence in rebuttal. To the ol
aevlnff and discriminating llsener it U
apparent that in not a single instnno
has a clean-cut ulibi been established,
not even In tho case of Tisher. and
that is probably the strongest of tha
lot The Robinson alibi has been
knocked higher than a kite by the evi
dence of the railroad conductors, on
whose tr.Hns it was alleged lloblnson,
traveled from Phllllpsburg to Avoea
on the 17th of November, the day of the
murdr. Robinson and hla wife testi
fied that they travelled on ccrtuln trains
between the points named on the day
indicated, that lloblnson travelled on
a pass, a'nd that he paid his wife's fair
on the train. The daily reports of the
conductors of those trains were put in
evidence, and the conductors them
selves testified that they received no
cash fares between the points named,
nor did they carry any one on passes
oft the l"th of November. Henderson,
the man on trial, has attempted to
prove that he left this city for Avoea
vith a relative several hours before
the murder was committed. This Is
met by Teputable witnesses, who testify
It Is now evident 'trtat "the Barring &
McSweeney detective agency has don
much more thorough work in this case
than the defsnse had anticipated. In
facit. It Is now admitted that the great
est fikUl nnd marvelous industry has
marked the labor of the detectives
throughout, all the more surprising
whyn It is remembered that fifteen
'momths ha1 gone by when the detective
ag'pncy took the case and undertook to
bring; the guilty to. justice. The end
has not yet bet-n renrlfVl. Th" nllMs
have already b&en hon?y-combed by
the evidence in rebuttal nnd it will be)
no surprise If they fall to tb" ground
before the- prosecution rets through.
One of the surprising n atures of this
trial Is tho virulent ni'tneks upon the
dt'teatlves by the counnel &r the de
fense as well as by one of" the newsv
papers of this city. It is constantly
bought to crCaite the imprcfelon that the
detective agency and the special de
tectives Who were employed In the case
have o. direct Interest, financially or
attterwlse, In the conviction of the ac
cused, and that therefore, they "will
ewear.to anything" to ccnvlet. There
to no reason whatever for such an out
rageous assumption. The Barring
agency was employed in this case by
the duly constituted authorities arid' the
work donei has been paid for ns It
progressed. That tlfe work has been
done thoroughly and as effectively ns
the peculiar conditions rendered possi
ble has been shown In the progress of
the trfe.1. Whother there is conviction
dr ocqulfttal by the Jury will not In. tha
slighteert; degree affect the wisdom of
employing the dotetrtive agency.
The authorities will manifest equal
wisdom Ini evt once employing the Bar
ring agencyjon the case of the old sol
i dler, who, as now appears altogether
probable, was murdered at Plymouth
the other flight'.
ANOTH ERJM UK DtR .
That Is What tho Coroner's Jury Says In
tho ITolluntino Cnso.
ifeference was made In The Tribune
en Saturday to the case of rthe old
eoldler, John Ballantine, who was
found dead at the foot of the stairs in
his home at Plymouth. He lived alone,
but a woman employed by him camo
every morning to .look after his house
nnd Keep It In order. Last Thursday,
morning when the woman entered the
house she found Ballantine dead, with
a broken skull. The first assumption
was ttiaf he had fallen down (stairs and
In that way sustained the fatal Injury.
An examination made evident the fact
tflat Ballantine had been struck ' a
heavy blow on the head with a sharp
Instrument, nnd thit the object was
roblifry. Ilnllantlne was a pensioner
and had Jot lecelved his quarterly al
lowance of jr.2, and this money has not
been found. Deputy Coroner Perkins
held an Inquest and a verdict was ren
dered that John Ballantine came to his
death frcm the effects of e blow on the
head struck by some person unknown
to the Jury. Now let this cose be taken
hold of while It Is fresh.

HOW TO CATCH ALLIGATORS.
Simply PIuiiro in After Thera and Stab
Them with a DRgccr.
A learned Frenchman, M. Desire
Charnay, exploring the ancient ruins
of Mexico and Central America, was
surprised to find the Indians In some
places living upon the flesh of alliga
tors. One day he asked his host, whom
he calls Don Juan, how the creatures
were caught. It was done in two ways.
he was answered, but usually the In
dians plunged into the water, stabbed
the alligator and drew him out.
The Frenchman expressed a desire
to see the performance, and took out
a plaster, which he offered to give the
hero of the encounter.
"The plaster Is needless," said Don
Juan, "but it will do no harm."
Then, as they were passing through
the village, he hailed an Indian. A tall,
thin, nervous looking fellow came up,
hat in hand.
"This gentleman wants to see you
kill an alligator," said Don Juan.
'That Is easy enough, and to please
you, Don Juan "
Here Is a plaster, my boy. Try to
In Ave minutes the men were down to
the lagoon, Don Juan and the French
man In a boat, and the Indian, stripped
for work, on the bank. In his hand was
a dagger some eight inches long. Just
then two huge alligators dashed Into
the water. In less time than it takes
to tell It the Indian stuck the dagger
between his teeth and plunged out of
sight Into the water.
He was gone a long time, the French
man thought "some seconds as long
as hours" then the water was troubled
again; the alligator, lashing his tall,
came to the Burface, and tho Indian,
covered with mud, was clinging to the
horrible creature's stomach.
Then they disappeared again, leaving
a trail of blood behind them. "Bravo!
bravo!" cried Don Juan, while M. Char
nay's blood froze In his veins, and he
wished he had never Instigated the
affair. There was a tremendous splash
ing. Some seconds passed, and this
time tho Indian alone came to the sur
face covered with mud and half suf
focated. A cry of Joy escaped the
Frenchman's lips. The Indian swam to
the boat, where he sat silent for a
moment, recovering hlg breath.
"The scamp has bitten my finner." he
said, bedding up his hand, "but I paid
him, as you will soon see."
Sure enough, while the Indian was
still scraping the nud from his limbs,
ine alligator, oottom upward. nDoeared
at the surface.
The Frenchman gave the fellow an
other plaster, and then gave him 20
francs for his dagger. The alligator
measured 14 feet 8 inches.
WENDELL PHILLIPS' WIT.
Asked tho Clergyman Why He Did Not Go
to Hell to Save Souls.
From Life Calendar.
Dr. Furness, of Philadelphia, tells a
characteristic Btory about Wendell Phil
lips. ''Several clergymen," he says,
"boarded a street car In Boston one day,
and one of them hearing It intimated
that Wendell Phillips was In the car got
up and asked the conductor to point him
out. The conductor did so, and the
minister, going up to the orator, said:
'You, are Mr. Phillips, I am toldr 'Yes,
sir.' 'I should like to speak to you about
something, and I trust, sir, you will not
be offended. 'There is no fear of It,'
was the sturdy answer, and then the
minister began to ask Mr. Phillips earn
estly why he jierslsted In stirring up
such an unfriendly agitation in one part
of the country about an evil that exist
ed in another part. 'Why,' said the
clergyman, 'do you not go South and
kick up this fuss and leave the North
In peace?' Mr. Phillips was not the
least ruffled, and answered smilingly:
'You, sir, I presume, are a minister of
the Gospel?' 'I am, sir,' said the clergy
man. 'And your calling Is to save souls
from hell 7' 'Exactly, Blr.' 'We'll, then,
why don't you go there?' "
Links Between Clover Seed and Old
Darwin said the amount of clover
seed produced in any given locality was
proportionate to the number of "old
maids" there resident, which he proved
by the folllnwg statement:
"There can be no clover Beed without
the bumble-bee, because no other In
sect fertilizes It. Tho enemy of the
bumble-bee Is the common field mouse,
that steals Into their nests and destroys
the larvae and eats up the honey.
"The enemy of the mouse la the com
mon cat, and the solid friend of the cat
Is the old maid. Consequently the
