CHARGED WITH LARCENY.
A Talc of an Overcoat and Its Vntl
William Fuller, a fish peddler, who
I08ldc3 at No. 6, was before Aldeiman
linker yestciday afternoon, chat Red
with the larceny of an overcoat from
Charles Letts, of Salem avenue. Tho
overcoat dlsnppeatcd from Letts' sa
loon about two weeks ago nnd noth
ing has been seen of lt since, until
5'tsferday morning, when IFultor, who
In a big, husky-looking fellow, with
Ills fnee almost concealed by a florca
tangle of tawny beard, came striding
In and asked for n dilnk. Mr. Letts
noticed tho coat at onco and com
menced to fed a quickening of IiU
heart beats as ho detected unmlstnk
stilo losemblance to the outsldo of his
"benjamin." He politely requested
Mr. rullcr to allow him to
Inspect tho garment, and Mr.
Fuller, with many asservatlnns as
to his futuro destiny, pointedly and
most positively declined. After this
bod been going on for several moments)
Charley begnn to feel almost as watm
as If ho was wearing the coat him
self. Ho once more, and for the last time,
risked tho favor of being allowed to
Inspect the eminent. Again his pro
posal was scorned. Then Charley
came around In front ot tho bar and
with a dextrous twist of the wrist,
opened tho coat. There could be no
mistake then. Tho lining of that coat,
onco seen, could never be forgotten.
Htit to make assurance doubly suie,
the claimant ran his hand up Into tho
nrm-hole. Theio was a tear there,
Just us there was In Chat ley's coat,
made by Ills diamond cuff buttons get
ting caught In the lining.
Mr. Fuller, having declined to say
whero i ho had purchased the coat,
Mr. Letts walked around tho corner
to Alderman Baker's and got out a
warrant for tho fish vendor's arrest,
and entrusted lt to Constable riercu,
who located his man after a long
soaich. Ho was taken before Aldct
nian Haker, who, after waiting for a
long time for Fuller to say where he
had obtained the garment, held him In
$300 ball for court
When this disposition of the caso
had finally gotten Itself fixed In Ful
lers mind, It dammed up tho torrent
of choice expletives that had hoieto
fnro tan like a swollen liver from his
lips, but only fpr a short time. UN
pent-up feelings were not capablo of
being expressed In Alderman Hakor's
small office, so Constable Pierce kindly
allowed him to go outsldo to swear.
lie leaned up against tho Iron fence In
H out of Dr. Bailey's ofllco and pourcM
lorth such an exceeding torrent of un
chaste language that tho good doctor
sitting behind tho closed door of his
office was horrified and scandalized to
such an extent that ho opened his door
nnd oidored him away.
By this time Fuller felt better and
made up his mind to say whero he got
tho coat. He ngaln went with Con
stable Pierce to Alderman Baker and
gave, the name of a man In Jormyn.
A wan ant was sworn out for this
fellow and Constable Plerco wept down
to Jcimyn to serve lt.

A REIGN OF DRUNKENNESS.
Three Men Charged with the Crime
and Locked Up.
'Carbohdalo is such an orderly town
that the arrest of three intoxicated
men 4n one day Is an event well worth
chronicling. On Thursday night Milt
Kinney, of Greonfleld; Ned Grady, of
the South Side, and a 'Swedish Strang
erjylth a name like a stationary buzz
saw and a dialect to go with It, were
put Into tho city Jail for safe-keeping.
I ' , ' , , ,
Cures a Cough or Cold at onoe,
Yesterday afternoon Mayor Kllpatrlck
disposed of the cases by discharging
the trio with a reprimand.
The Swedish gentleman lingered
around town until evening, begging In
BtorcH and from pnssersby. Ho woro
a hat that was onco white, clothes
that had Uono service In a prehistoric
period and a pathetic expression that
was both bland and weary. As tho
evening shades nettled down he ap
plied onco more nt tho city Jail, this
time for a night's lodging, and was ac
commodated with u couch In one of the
safe deposit vaults.
MANNERS BEAT SINGER.
These Two Players Draw a Pull
House at tho Pool Tourney.
Last night tho pool tournament of
the Cnrbondalo Cyclo club had an ex
tra at ti action. Mnnncrs and Singers
were at lust to meet, and, as each had
lost two games without a win and,
f in thormorc, as the meeting had been
extensively advertised and anticipated,
tho looms of tho club were filled with
the largest throng of the meeting. Bui
the spectators were disappointed. In
stead of tho long-drawn-out game ex
pected, Manners started off in hunl
cano fashion nnd left Singer at tho
post. Before the latter player could
giasp tho fact that the two weic play
ing pool Manncis had won out by the
handsome score of CO to 29. There
were one or two little Incidents of ths
game that caused astonishment. One
of them was when Singer got nn Idea
that tho game ha was playing was bil
llatds and proceeded to execute some
difficult mussu shots In thu center of
the table. On being Informed of his
error by tho referee, he at first was
Inclined to be angry at tho laughter
of the crowd, but was molllfled after a
Httlo by his opponent's promising to
buy his next suit of clothes for liltn.
The other Incident occurred at the
close of tho game, after Manneis had
won. Singer had but twenty-nine but
tons on his suing and insisted on his
being allowed to finish the game of
fifty, as he said ho knew ho could bent
Manners If ho would play another
twenty-one points. This could not be
allowed, of course, and Singer discon
solately wended his way home, accom
panied by a faithful friend.
The other game of the evening was
ono between Dr. Day and R. II, Strick
land, both In the third class, which was
won by Dr. Day. This makes three
players dropped from the contest, each
having lost three games. They aio
Moon, Singer and Stilcklnnd.

A very eminent surgeon ha
declared that ho never lets a day
pass without thanking Heaven
that ho was not born a woman;
nnd this distinguished man prob
ably knows more of woman's
trials than any living person.
Yet how sweet and gracious is the gift of 'womanhood To
woman belong the Joys of girlhood) love, and beauty of wife
hood nnd motherhood. Angels are painted fair to look like
thccl" but tho penalty of her sex has to be paid, and the
tribute It exacts is heavy with pain and weariness. Too often
tho payment leaves her ruined In health, bankrupt In happiness
a lifelong invalid, for want of a little timely help, perhaps
a little timely knowledge.
A woman's experience, and she a doctor with an extensive
practice, should carry conviction to every candid mind. It Is
therefore with pleasure and confidence that Dr. Louise M.
Lander's letter is given to Iter sex.
