Escaped Two Days Before He Was to

tryman Then an Invalid, now a
Man of Fine Physique.
Honolulu, Hawaii. After enjoying
eight years of freedom in the moun
tains of Hawaii by escaping from pris
on two days before he was to have
been hanged, Fujihrra, a Japanese
convicted of having murdered one of
bis countrymen, has been captured.
His story reads like a romance: Ten
thousand dollars was the price of his
liberty. This amount was raised by
bit friends with Infinite work, owing
to the poverty of the class of people
to which he belonged, and paid, so he
alleges, to Charles Moore, at that time
jailer of Hllo prison, where Fujlhara
was confined. For $10,000, Moore be
trayed his trust and allowed his
charge to escape. That was eight
Assisted by his friends, Fujlhara
made his way to the mountains and
has since lived like some wild ani
mal, feeding on the wild berries, fruit,
and yams that grew on the mountain
side. Only once or twice in all the
time since his escape from prison has
he seen a human being, and then for
fear he hid himself among the rocks.
In the meantime, he was almost for
gotten. Government officials changed
and many who remembered the trial
passed away. The Judge who sen
tenced him is one of these; so Is
Charles Moore, who gave him his re
lease. But there were some who had
not forgotten Fujlhara. although they
thought that he had gotten away In a
sailing vessel to Japan. One pf those
of long memory was Deputy Sheriff
Overend of Hllo. Overend learned
that a man was hiding in the moun
tains and went after him. He found
Fujlhara out picking berries for his
breakfast, and now his fate is In the
hands of Gov. Frear of Hawaii.
The eight years of liberty have been
the best of life Fuijhara has ever
known. When he was tried for the
murder of his countryman he was
stooped and sickly; now he Is of fine
physique and a picture of health.
There are those who say that Fujl
hara did not have a fair chance for his
life at his trial. He Ad not have an
interpreter. Ignorant, as he and his
friends were, they did not understand
that he was entitled 'to rights under
the laws of the American government,
and he made no effort to disprove the
charge. He was defended by a "green"
boy-lawyer appointed by the court, as
Fujlhara had no money to pay for a
Fujlhara says that he did not intend
to kill his victim. He had a gun In
his band. The ramrod was in the gun
and lie had no. Intention of using It
He had a quarrel, and In the scrim
mage the gun was discharged, the
ramrod killing his opponent.
Many people are Interesting them
selves in his behalf, and his sentence
may be commuted by the governor.
DIGS FOR RABBITS; GET8 FOX.
Rockvllle Farmer Makes an Unexpect
ed Bag While Hunting.
Mlddletown, N. Y. The last snow
storm In this section was responsible
for the greatest slaughter of rabbits
ever known so early in the season in
Orange and Sullivan Counties. It is
estimated that over 1,000 rabbits were
killed in these counties In two days.
Two hunters from this city shot
twenty-flvo rabbits within two hours,
and another man got eight rabbits and
a fox without using either gun or dog.
John Dorgan, an aged resident of
Rockvllle, who has never shot a gun
In his life, started out to get a rabbit
for dinner. He carried a pick and
shovel with the idea of tracking a rab
bit to a hole In the ground and digging
it out He succeeded in finding rab
bit tracks and traced them to a hole.
After digging for half an hour he came
upon a red fox, which he killed with
a blow with the pick. Certain that
there was also a rabbit in the holo he
kept on digging, and finally discov
ered eight of the furry animals tightly
Jammed in the hole.

Prof. Nearlng ridiculed ex-President
Roosevelt's plea for big families, de

OSE 010 OFJULE FOUND
Farmer Dodging Hitching Ordinance,
Forgot Peculiar Genesis of
Hartford, Conn. All horses left un
attended in a street here must be
hitched to a post or weighted, says an
ordinance. Its strict enforcement
was ordered several days ago, and
since then, fifty angry farmers havo
been arrested and fined. Such ex
cuses as "the hoss wouldn't budge an
Inch if you drove fire engines under
his nose and tried to push him along"
had no effect Harness stores and
hardware shops have profited by the
demand for straps and weights.
One wise old farmer from Granby
landed on Main street and triumphant
ly hailed Traffic Patrolman Peter Gav
in with "Say, that ordinance of yours
don't say anything about mules, does
"No," replied Gavin. "I don't re
member that it does. Why?"
"Well, this is a mule. Haw-haw!
Guess I've got you fellows beat this
"Guess again," retorted Gavin. "You
know a mule is half horse, don't you?"
The farmer admitted the truth of that
"Well," continued Gavin, "you hitch
up the horse part of that animal or
I'll ran you in. I don't care which end
you hitch, but you're going to com

through the bit ring.
Henry Arthur Jones
Predicts Women Will
Be Superior to Men.
London. The men folks here
Lords and all of 'em were
wondering how long it would
take' the modern woman to de
velop the tendencies of a spider
and gobble up the men, as Hen
ry Arthur Jones predicted.
Mr. Jones, addressing a meet
ing of the Society of Women
"I'm prepared to allow that
woman might be developed into
a creature as far superior to
man as that female spider who,
when the poor male spider
comes timidly up to make love
to her, if she doesn't like the
looks of him. oats him up there

USES MOTOR ON HIS FARM.
Cost of Ploughing and Seeding Wheat
Is 61 Cents an Acre.
Oberlln, Kan. William Jackson,
farmer, who has been using a ninety
horse power farm motor In his farm
ing operations, recently finished plow
ing and seeding a thousand acres of
wheat He used a four-cylinder mo
tor, and it required 2,107 gallons of
gasoline, which cost $260.84. Of lubri
cating oil he used about $90 worth,
making a total cost for gasoline and
lubricating oil of $356.84.
The expenses for men, their board
and other Incidental expenses were
$250, which brought the total cost of
plowing, packing and seeding a thou
sand acres up to $600.84, or less than
61 cents an acre for the entire opera
tion of seeding the farm.
This same man has the reputation
of always producing wheat even In the
dry years. He gets his wheat In be
fore Nov. 1 in the very best possible
shape and In soil that has been care
fully cared for and packed In such a
way that it will hold the moisture.
The expenses for doing the same work
with teams would have been three or
four times that incurred with the mo
tor and gasoline engine.
Most of the land that has been
farmed by Jackson cost him $10 an
acre a few years ago, and he has al
ways had a crop of some kind, and
In most years his wheat has yielded
more than $10 an acre. .

alone on a bed. The mice climbed on
the J bed and gnawed the infant's
hands. Her cries brought assistance,

ROOSTER CROWS AT WEDDING.

Just as he reached ttie pew in which

Rev. W. J. Kirwin, the minister, hes

one In the room, Including the bride
and bridegroom, turned to see what
was the matter.
The rooster did not quite finish its
triumphant crow, for the little girl
grabbed it by the neck and the crow
died away with an apologetic gurgle.
The "kids" then ran from the
church, and when Sergeant Call fol

"THE TWO VOICES."
By Rev. Howard Arnold Walter.
This is a sermon without a specific
text, for the theme is "Temptation"
and the texts are Innumerable, rang
ing all the way from the Garden of
Eden to the isle called Patmos, from
Alpha to Omega of human history and
experience. From the dawn of the
first conscious sin in childhood to the
sundown of life two voices are sound
ing Incessantly in the ear of every in
dividual, the voice of Satan summon
ing men upward to righteousness. The
better we become the firmer grow
our temptations, for the higher wo
arc lifted the stronger does the force
of moral gravitation become. 'It Is
no temptation for the drunkard to
take another drink as it is for the
man who is fighting free of his pas
sion for alcohol. When we think of
the white purity of Jesus' life making
its way through the dark and crooked
avenues of earth, unstooping and un
stained, we are aghast at the force of
the temptations that must have beset
Him, fiercest as we learn from the
account of His early temptations In
our gospel In the spiritual range of
His absolute trust In God, His con
sciousness of Messiahshlp.
Generally speaking, there are three
ranges of a man's life when he is
continually engaged in this relentless
baUle for his soul between the forces,
of sin and of Balvatlon, namely, the
physical, the social and the spiritual.
It Is curiously suggestive that the
earliest temptation mentioned in the
Bible, which wrought the downfall of
our first parents, should have been
concerned with the appetite, which
since that day has constituted one of
man's chief battle grounds. The sen
sual and' the spiritual are forever an
tagonistic, and only as the former is
disciplined and denied, only as we
strive, with Paul, to keep the body
under, will our bodies be fit temples
for the Holy Ghost to inhabit. Many
of the characters in the Bible narra
tive we know were immersed in this
conflict Noah, David, Daniel, St
Paul and our Lord Himself, hearing
on the one hand the voice crying
"gratify" and on the other a voice
that said "forbear." It was when He
was physically exhausted. His bodily
strength at lowest ebb, that the devil
tempted Jesus to turn a stone Into
bread and gratify His desire for crea
ture comfort at the expense of His
obedience of God. To Indulge when
we ought to deny our bodily cravings,
to overindulge in any sphere, is to in
fringe the laws of Nature, and that Is
tantamount to breaking the law of
No desire Is stronger in the breast
of the average man than the yearning
for popularity, for the favorable opin
ions of other men; and hence no sum
mons of God is harder to obey than
the command to brave and to con
demn the popular will when It is an
tagonistic to God's will. Trace through
history the pathways of the great re
formers and you will find them as
lonely voices of God crying out for
Him In the wilderness of the many
voices of men. The multitude which
at first shout for the crowning of the
prophet, who they hope has come as
a delivererfrom this world's tyranny,
are, a unit in shouting for his cruci
fixion when they discern at last the
spiritual Import of his message.
What is the message for us who are
not prophets or reformers on the
mountain peaks of history? It Is,
"having done all to stand." Wg, too,
are reformers In our lesser spheres of
life, down in the valley of the com
monplace, where we dwell. In our
school, In our business, in our club,
in our home, we must stand for God
and resist the tendency to build loose
ly on the old and sure foundations.
In the physical realm we must obey
the voice that bids "forbear," In the
social realm the voice "withstand,"
in the spiritual realm we must obey
the voice that bids "believe." The
skeptics have always been divided
into two schools, represented In
Greece by the Epicureans and the
Stoics. The former hold that life Is
short and death its end, hence life
must be enjoyed to the full with the
jug of wine, the loaf of bread and the
woman's song. The latter hold that
life is short and death its end, for
aught we know, hence we must make
the most of the brief time we have
for progress, never wincing or crying
aloud in "the fell clutch of circum
stance." Mathew Arnold, the modern
poet of this school, saw men fighting
on a confused plain, "where ignorant
armies clash by night"
But for us Christ has arisen. Paul,
His prophet, tells of another warfare,
of light with darkness, of knowledge
with Ignorance; he saw death "swal
lowed up in victory," for them who
know through faith in Jesus that
death is but an incident of the
life eternal. Many a man has lost his
faith by listening only to the persua
sive voice of doubt, not heeding or
seeing the full significance of that
voice of peerless affirmation, "I am
the resurrection and the life."
In our ears to-day, every day, those
voices of temptation and of triumph
are sounding with ceaseless Iteration.
We peak1 of moments that are big
with destiny. Kvery moment of our
