let wound In the head which narrow
iy missed ending his life at his home.
One of these was Clupp, nnd the

ker husband was lying upon the Door

tho theory that he had committed sul

PRISONER'S ESCAPE BLOCKED.
Burglar's Attempt at Freedom Stopped
When Somebody Tells Sheriff.
Hnckensnck, N. J Dec. 13 Martin
fJoresen, a burglar, who says he lives
In New York and who was caught in
Itidgefleld Park ten days ago with
$500 worth of stolen goods, planned u
Jajl delivery. Another prisoner told
UndersherllT Heath, and the escape
Goresen had removed six bricks and
ne bar from the wall and used his cot
to cover the hole. A knotted rope was
ready for a drop of twenty-flve feet to
the ground. Porks and hooks must
have been smuggled through the win

A Camel's Stomach.
Tho stomach of a camel is divided
Into four compartments, nnd the walls
of one of these are lined with large
cells, every one of which can be opened
and closed at will by means of power
ful muscles. When a camel drinks It
drinks a very great deal. Indeed, it
goes drinking on for such n very long
tltno that really you would think thnt
It never meant to leave off. But the
fact Is that it is not only satisfying
its thirst, but Is filling up Us cistern
as well. One after another the cells
in its stomach nre filled with tho water,
and ns soon as each is qulto full it Is
tightly closed. Then when the animal
becomes thirsty a few hours later all
that it has to do is to open one of
tho cells and allow tho water to flow
out. Next day it opens one or two
more cells, and so It goes ou day after
day until the whole supply is ex
hausted. In this curious way a camel
can live five or even six daya without
drinking at all nnd no is able to travel
quite easily through tho desert, where
the wells are often hundreds of allien

Supreme Court Holds Statute of Limi
tations Doesn't Apply In Adolph
Segal Case Government to
Start After Heads.
Washington, Dec. 13. Through a de
rision of tho tlnltcd States supreme
court the prosecution of John E. Par
sons and lire other directors of the
Nugar trust under tho criminal section
of the Sherman antitrust law is made
possible. The prosecution will be un
der indictments already returned
against the Seven directors charging
thfcni with violating the Sherman law
in the acquisition and suppression of
the Pennsylvania Sugnr Refining com
pany of Philadelphia, the controlling
interest In which was held by Adolph
The decision of the supreme court
was a reversal of that of Judge Holt
of tho circuit court In the cases of
Gustave E. Kissel and Thomas IS.
Harned, two agents of the trust. Kis
sel and Harned were indicted with
Mr. Parsons and the other directors
July 1, 1000. They Interposed a plea
In bar to the indictment, reciting thnt
a conspiracy such as charged In the
Indictment was not continuous and
that the stntute of limitations had in
tervened to prevent prosecution. Judge
Holt sustained this plea.
The supreme court holds that the
conspiracy was continuous and the
statute of limitations could not be
pleaded in bnr. The five directors In
dieted made no plea then, but the
prosecution of their cases has been
held pending the outcome of the ap
peal to the supreme court by Kissel
Attorney General WIckershnra and
United Stntes District Attorney Wise
of New York, both of whom were in
court when the decision wns made,
said it meant tho prosecution not only
of Kissel and Harned, but of Mr. Par
sons and the other directors.
The other directors under Indictment
are Washington B. Thomas, Arthur B,
Donner, Charles H. Sneff, John Mayer
and George H. Frazier.
The Indictments are based on tho
shutting down of the Pennsylvania
Sugar Heflulng company In 190-1 by
Kissel, who, acting in the interests ot
the American Sugar Refining company,
had bought up a majority of the, stock
nnd a controlling interest In the bonds
of the company. Parsons nnd other
members of the sugar trust, it is said,
refused to let Segal, who was at the
head of the Philadelphia concern, op
erate long enough to pay off the debts
of the company.

Tho Perfect Llviny rv
After nil the modern house deco
rators have said their last word on
the subject it would be hard to find
anything half so satisfactory as the
simple rules given by William Morris
for the making of n perfect room. The
woman who Is planning to rearrange
her house this fall with a view to add
ing to its comfort and attractiveness
would do well to read over what Wil
liam Morris wrote about the furnish
ing of tho living room.
"Perhaps it will not try your pa
tience too much," he writes, "if I lay
beforo you my Idea of tho fittings nec
essary to the sitting room of a healthy
person first n bookcase with a great
many books in it, next a table that
will keep Bteady when you wrlto or
work at it, then several chairs that
you can move and a bench that you
can sit or He upou; next a cupboard
with drawers; next, uuless either the
bookcase or tho cupboard be very
beautiful with painting or carving,
you will want pictures or engravings,
such ns you can afford, only not stop
gaps, but real works of art umi the
wall, or else the wall Itself must bo
ornamented with some beautiful or
restful pattern. Wo Bhnll also want
a vase or two to put flowers In, which
latter you must havo sometimes, espe
cially if you live in town. Then there
will bo tho fireplace, of course, which
in our climate Is bound to bo tho chief
object In tho room."

Tortured by Piles!
Probably no one disease causes so much
pain and suffering as piles or hemorrhoids.
The victims are often in agony. Each
attack seems worse and more stubborn.
Work or business is impossible. The nerves
are racked, the system debilitated by loss
of blood and the end is an operation.
Piles are the penalty of neglect. The
one chief cause of this trouble is constipa
tion. When the bowels are clogged the
trouble begins. These sensitive, painful
tumors are the result. If you are afflicted
with piles begin with Smith's Pineapple and
Butternut Pills at once, and get a full free
passage of the bowels without pain or
griping. Take two of these wonderful lit
tle pills at night and two more the next
morning. Then take one or two pillsevery
night at bedtime for a few days. You will
find that Smith's Pineapple and Butternut
Pills will cleanse the entire system, purify
the blood, invigorate the liver and so reg
ulate your bowels that piles will disappear.
Physicians use and recommend. They
form no habit. You should always keep
these little Vegetable Pills on hand. They
ward off many ills.
