Prisoner Will Be Given Hearing Late
' This Afternoon and Probably Sur
rendered By the State to Foderal
Vanceboro, Me., Feb. 4.—Werner
Horn, who attempted to blow up tliu
International bridge over the St. Croix
river, was arrested to-day on a warrant
issued by a local trial judge, charging
him with defacing and injuring build-
j uj»s in Vanceboro. The injury to the
buildings was caused by the shock ot
the explosion when Horn exploded a
charge of dynamite under the briilge.
This move was m ule to avoid pos
sible complications in further detaining
the dynamiter without a formal charge
having been made against him. Deputy
Sheriff Ross, who took him iuto custody
Tuesday morning feared personal liabil
ity in the matter and after communicat
ing with the office of the State Attor
nev General obtained the warrant
which was later served to the prisoner.
Horn will be given a hearing late
i this afternoon. It is expected he will
j be surrendered by the State to federal
i jurisdiction "and transferred to Bangor
, or Portland for a hearing before a fed-
I eral commissioner on the application of
J the British government for the extradi
tion of the prisoner to Canada.

Lost His Nerve
Manv vear« ago a blacksmith near
York, En-gland, successfully pea-formed
the delicate operation of removing a
cataract from an eye on several of his
fellow villagers, says the London
"Chronicle." The fact became kuown
to a doctor in the neighborhood, who
so adnjired the blacksmith's skill that
•ho provided the means for his cdui'*-
tion as an oculist. To tho blacksmith
thft removal of the cataract was no
more than a mechanical feat, but when
lie became acquainted with tho struc
ture of the human eye and its amazing
delicacy he was ih> overpowered by the
rashness of what he had done in igno
rance that he lost his norve, and with
the fear of knowledge he insisted on
reiturning to his aJivil.
