San Miguel's Friends Say
He Is Marked For Death. I
GUARD CUBAN CONGRESSMAN.
Attack Upon Representative by Fol
low Member of Lawmaking Body
at Havana Causes Dellef In
Murder Plot Story.
Havana, Juno 28. Congressman An
tonio San Miguel Is being closely
guarded by his friends today. They
Insist that there is a plot to assassi
nate him. Tho attack upon Congress
man San Miguel yesterday by Con
gressman Manuel Lores has caused
many to believe the story of the plot,
and there Is Intense uneasiness among
the members of the Cuban congress.
Just before the house of representa
tives reopened yesterday afternoon
Congressman Lores approached Con
gressman San Miguel In the chamber.
Amicably enough Scnor Lores said to
Scnor San Miguel, who Is the owner
and editor of the Lueha, the most In
fluential newspaper in Cuba:
"Hello, San Miguel. 1 am glad to see
Before Scnor San Miguel, a Spaniard
by birth and n naturalized Cuban, could
reply Lores whipped a revolver from
hi( pocket and shot at him.
Quick as Lores was, General Cullozo,
a cohgressmau, was quicker. He threw
himself on Lores and spoiled his aim.
The bullet missed San Miguel, but sped
very close to the head of Gonzales La
Musa, leader of the minority In the
In a turmoil of excitement Lores was
disarmed, and his friends hurried him
Tho attack on Senor San Miguel Is
said to be the result of a duel being
called off which had been arranged be
tween San Miguel nnd Scnor Moleon,
one of the supporters of Lores In the
house. The seconds arranged the quar
rel, and the principals did not meet,
an outcome which displeased Senor
Lores, It seems.
New York, June 28. Senor San
Miguel Is well known In New York
and Washington. He has enemies In
Cuba. He was of tho opinion, even
after Palma was elected president of
Cuba, that Cuba's annexation to the
United States was the only step that
would Insure permanent peace and
prosperity to the Island.
While some of the members of last
year's Cuban congress started a move
ment to Increase their salary from
300 to $400 a month and others were
trying to make their relatives employ
ees of congress, Senor San Miguel an
nounced his Intention to devote his
salary to the education of Ave youths
of Plnar del Rio province. Some of
tho native congressmen were deeply
chagrined that a naturalized citizen
should exhibit a higher degree of pa
triotism than they.
General Rodriguez, then mayor of
Havana, challenged Scnor San Miguel
to a duel some years ,ago. Rodriguez
considered an article In the Lncba as
libelous and attacking tho integrity
of tho mayor's office. Tho Lncha pub
lished a statement disclaiming any in
tention of attacking the mayor's char
acter, and the duel was not fought

IN THE WORLD OF
Bush, Who Is Playing Sensa
tionally For Detroit.
ft. ' i' :
Shortstop Owen Bush of Detroit Is
the sensation of the American league
this season. His fielding and timely
batting are helping the Tigers to win
many games. Bush Is only twenty-one
years of age and is the smartest man
on the Tigers. In 1007 he was secured
from the South Bend (Ind.) team by
Detroit. In 1003 be helped Indianap
olis to win the pennant, and that fall
be joined Detroit In time to enable
the Tigers to win the championship.
His work in twenty games was a big
factor in Detroit's success that year.
In 1000 Bush played In 157 champion
ship games and bad a fielding average
of .925. His record showed 303 put
outs. 507 assists and 71 errors, nn aver
age of a trifle more than six chances
Pacer Dan Patch Retired.
Dan Patch has been permanently re
tired from the racing and speed exhi
bition stage. M. W. Savage, his owner,
is authority for the statement that
Dan Patch will never again be asked,
to start in attempts to lower tho
world's records. Ho says that this
greatest of all horses "has done his
share of work and that his life from
this time on will be spent In enjoying
a well earned rest, in watching other
harness horses struggle to lower his
record nnd in perpetuating bis great
ness through his get. While the cham
pion will not be called upon to make
any of the mighty efforts that havo
made him famous, be will still do

Big Baseball War Brewing.
Acording to a rumor, a big baseball
war la brewing between tho National
and American leagues, and it Is sched
uled to break at tho end of the present
season. It Is said the National will
break nway from the American next
fall and. instead of tho two working
In harmony, there will be keen com
petition between them.
If this should come to pass It might
furnish better nnd cheaper baseball,
but it would not last and eventually
would prove bad for tho game. Wars
of such a naturo Invariably fall, and.
some master band gathers In all the
National Athletio Meet.
In preparing for the A. A. U. na
tional athletic championships, which
will bo held in New Orleans this year,
a quarter mile cinder track Is being
constructed which Is expected to bo
tho equal of any In tho country. It is
being modeled after those at the
Jamestown and St. Louis expositions.
It will have 220 yards straight away
fonhurdlcs and the furlong dash. The
inner field has, football, gridiron and
basket ball courts and several jumping
and vaulting pits.

Joe Elorncr of Grand Rapids is cap

said' to have been elected to tho place.
Horner and Ralph Craig of Detroit
wero conceded to bo tho men betweeu
whom lay tho honor of tho captaincy.
Tho men wero so popular that tho
others on tho track team refused to

to decide who was to bo captain. They

Interesting Discovery One Woman
Made by Use of the Glaus.
"1 thought It was a pretty lair sort
or telescope for ono that wasn't very
big," said Uncle Silas. "I rigged It
up In the attic by the high
north wjjjdow and had It fixed so It
would swing around easy. I took a
deal of satisfaction In looking through
It, tho sky seemed so wldo and full of
wonders, so when HeBtcr was here I
thought I'd glvo her tho pleasure too.
She stayed a long tlmo upstairs and
teemed to be enjoying It. When Bhe
came down I arked her If she'd dis
covered anything new,
"'Yes she says. 'Why, It made
everybody's house seem so near that
I seemed to ho right beside 'cm, and
I found out what John l'ritchard's
folks are doln' in their kitchen. I've
wondered what they had a light there
for night after night, nnd I Just turned
the glass on their windows. They are
cuttin' apples to dry folks as rich as
them cutt:n' apples!'

and patients pufferies from coal sns
poisoning show the symptoms asso
ciated with the Inhalation of carbonic
oxide, including the peculiar bright
red color of the blood.
From experiments made by Dr. von
Vahlen, at Halle, it seems probable
that we must revise this view, for on
making experiments with fross. ani
mals particularly resistant' to car
bonic oxide, It was found that they
were poisoned far more rapidly by
coal gas than by the corresponding
amount of the oxide. Other experi
ments with dogs showed that the poll
onous effect of coal gas was twl e or
three times as great as that of the
carbonic oxide it contained. Evident
ly there Is some other constituent of
coal gas which is poisonous, though
what It Is cannot yet be stated. Mere
ly removing the carbonic oxide from
coal gas will not suffice to render It
Students who have made geodetic
studies In the Himalayas and tho
Tibetan mountains have brought to
light a very strange phenomenon, or
ono that must be regarded as very
strange If It actually exists. It Is no
less than an apparent creeping of
these gigantic mountain ranges, tho
mightiest on the globo, sldewlse to
ward the south, with a consequent
crumpling up of the Slwalik hills. It
has long been known that there ex
lBt curious anomalies in the density ot
the earth under and adjacent to tho
Himalayas, but this suggestion of a
creeping motion Is novel. The sur
veys which are still going on may
eventually disclose the real facts, but
the operation on the Tibetan side are
rendored difficult by the fact that ac

Breakfast a Generation Ago.
Mush, we used to call It, and each
child, bowl and spoon In hand, a big
pitcher of milk hard by, awaited tho
cooking process as mother stirred and
stirred tho mass bubbled and bub
bled, says the Portland Oregonlan.
The corn meal that went Into It was
taken from a big bin In a tin scoop
and slowly shaken into the boiling wa
ter -until tho experienced eye showed
that the mush was thick enough, and
when done to the queen's taste it was
ladled Into the waiting bowls, the
pitcher was brought Into requisition,
and the meal was over in short order.
Breakfast food we call It now. It is
gingerly shaken by tho kitchen maid
from a highly ornamented pasteboard
box, simmered until by dint of calling
and ringing tho breakfast bell the
children come fretfully to the table,
when it Is duly served, smothered in
sugar and cream, sniffed at and loft as
a contribution to the slop can. Yes, it
costs more this way, but we have got
to hve It. And so, of course, we
have to pav the bill.

The Generous Arab.
"One day when In our wanderings
trc happened to camp near some roll
ing country the sheik and I rode off
in search of gazelles," says n traveler
in Arabia. "We found a large herd,
nnd, being mounted on good horses, we
managed to ride them down, throwing
ourselves off our horses for the shot,
then galloping on nguln. We killed six
gazelles In about an hour and rode
back to camp with enough meat for a
big feast. It Is the custom that who
ever kills game should provide a feast
for all his friends. On the occasion of
these feasts 1 noticed that there was
always a crowd of hangers-on waiting
nt the end for a scrap of food, hnlf
starved looking boys and ragged men.
These were orphans whose pnrents
had been killed or men whose herds
had been 'lifted' by other Arabs, and
as a result they were destitute, for the
law of the Bedouin Is 'survival of tho
fittest In Its strictest sense. But the
sheik supplied fond llbi-rally, and I
noticed that lie nhva.s looked after
the poor and fed the hungry."

The Baby Stare.
Have you ever sat opposite In bus

two years old? If you have you have
been compelled to notice It. And un
less you are a misanthropical person
I guess you have caught yourself feel
ing uncomfortable under its wide eyed
scrutiny .of you. I think there is noth
ing more disconcerting than to be re
jected by a baby after full aud open
cross examination. Babies and very
young children have no humbug about
them. I believe they see more than
grownups. I believe they read our
characters down to tho very ground.
While the young mother Is Interested
to find that her baby Is being admired
that baby is reckoning up both the
mother and the admirer, and when the
jerky turn of the head comes the man
that has music In his soul feels small.
