Atlanta Police f'nptain Gifted With
n Strange Power.
Atlanta. July 15.—Life has been made
weary for Capt. Thompson of the police
force by the discovery that he Is gifted
with marked hypnotic power. In his deal
ings with the prisoners, who have from
time to time been brought before him, it
was noticed that Capt. Thompson seemed
to exert o great influence over them.
A short time ago the captain went home
one night and discovered hie little son was
quite ill. The child was very fretful and
on the point of having convulsions. Capt.
Thompson made a few passes over its
head and in an instant it was sound
The siory was told in the neighborhood.
A few days later a woman who was suf
fering greet agony from neuralgia sent an
urgent plea to the captain to visit her.
He consented, and by the use of his
strange power soon had the woman well
This cure naturally added to his fame
Bt- a healer, and it was not long before
the entire neighborhood was winging his
praises. But, however pleasing the praise
may have been. It was not gratifying to
•he captain to find himself besieged with
people who want his services. He does
not look at the matter lightly and dots
not feel like turning a deaf ear to the
throngs who seek his assitance. He says
that since God has given him this power
he supposes it Is his duty to exercise it
for the best interests.

BIG TREES IN OREGON.
Twenty to Thirty Feet In Diameter
and More Than 350 Feet Tall.
From the Portland Oregonian.
I would like to draw attention to a bunch
of immense trees in the mountains fifteen
to twenty miles from my place, near La
tourell, on the O. R. & N. I used to make
every year a trip to the mountain,? lasting
generally eight to ten days, and it was cn
one of my last trips, about four years
ago. that 1 discovered on the northeast
gide of the divide, between the waters of
the Bull Run und the Hood river, this
bunch of giant trees. The like I never saw
before nor since.
Before I saw these giants I had measur
ed from time to time some trees at homo
which girdled twenty-nine to thirty feet
arofind about three feet above the base,
hut these trees could not be compared at
all with the big trees I found in the
mountains. They would uppear as mere
slicks against those giants. I honestly'
believe that those giants will girdle wixty
to eighty feet around near the base, and
that they are 350 to 400 feet high. They
stand on a kind of flat or lx>ttom, and this
flat Is well protected from diseoverey, ns
far us I could perceive, by steep and high
bluffs not only from the Hood river Rde
up, but from the main water divide down.
These big trees are, In my mind, some
where near the north line of the National
Park, but It Is doubtful if they are in it.
The re ate two species of the giant trees.
One specie* has a yellowish and not
tough bark, is straight and round a& a
candle, has no limbs to an immense Bight,
and has a nice, wonderful crown. The
father of this very aristocratic species in
our mountains is surely ihe emperor of
our forest. People must not think that
this is the so-called “noble fir.” because
1 knew not only the “noble fir.’’ but many
other mountain tree? as well. Nor must
they think that this species is one of the
common trees In the mountains. I can
not say how many such giants there ore.
There may he hundreds—there may be
thousands. On our way home one of my
companions was drowned in the Bull Run,
and therefore I never wrent to tin* moun
tains again, but have always had de
sire to go and investigate further about
those big trees.
CYdar I? the second species of the big
trees. They rival in size and grand l ' r
the first species. But the most wonder
ful thing about them seems to be that
they are. In spite of their immense diam

The Boat f the Story Is Almost as
Odd—Wris Betrothed to Her Twin
Brother—Found Her Mother. Who
Didn’t know She Hml Ever Llxed.
And n Lot More Like It.
From the Chicago Inter-Ocean.
Occasionally things happen in real life
that mak* the wildest romances seem col
orless. Uuanitai Le Clerque. a Chicago
girl, living at Fifty-fifth street and Cot
tage Grove avenue, has a life story beside
which the plot of a Balzac novel is unin- j
teresting. Uuanitai’s own mother never j
knew of the girl’s existence. Hhe was j
adopted out of an orphan asylum when j
three months old and carried to India by
wealthy foster parents who idolized her.
She was educated in iwo of the most fash
ionable girls’ schools in this country, aft
er living sixteen years in India. She fell
in love with her twin brother and would
have married him but for the chance dis
covery of her real mother, and of the re
lationship between herself and her broth
er. She Is now engaged to marry her
A few weeks ago Mrs. May Wright Be
wail of Indianapolis, who goes to the Paris
fair as commissioner from that state, of
fered Miss Le Clerque a position as pri
vate secretary. Miss Le Clerque planned
to go, but her fiance opposes the proposi
tion on the ground, perhaps, that by some
East Indian Jugglery the mysterious young
woman is likely to disappear altogether.
The story of Uuanitai Le Clerque begins
years ago, for that was when
she was horn in Rochester, N. Y. A short
time before her birth her mother and fa
ther had separated. Mrs. Le Clerque left
her husband in New York city and went
to live with her relatives In Rochester.
Uuanitai was one of the twins. Her broth
er was a lusty, healthy chap, whose very
appearance at the beginning of his career
in the world announced ro all and sun
dry, “I mean to live. Whatever hard
knocks may come, here I am to s:ay.”
Uunitai, on the other hand, was a puny
child, very small, and not much Inclined
to fight for her delicate life. When the
mother began to recover from her long end
almost fatal illness, she asked at once for
“Here he is,” said her sister, bringing in
the little boy.
“A handsome boy. that.’’ said the cld
family doctor, who had been made a party
to the scheme of Mrs. Le Clerque’? rela
tives. The relatives meantime had decided
that in case the mother did not recover,
two orphan children woujd be a rather se
vere tax upon their charity. In case he
did lice, they reasoned one child was bur
den enough fora widow, without the extra
tax of a sickly little girl. So while the
mother tosaed about In the delirium of
fe\er they took the girl and placed her
in ihe New York Orphans’ Home, now
standing in New York city on Seventeenth
street. Her mother was not told of her
existence. By a strange oversight of the
relatives, who were so anxious to conceal
the fact of her birth, the child was enter
ed at the orphan asylum under her own
name. Rut for this her Identity would
never have been discovered.
Three months after Uuanitai was placed
in the asylum a gentleman and his wife,
Maywood, by name, came in search of a
child to adopt. They had three sonn, r.nd
the dream of their lives was a little daugh
ter. Uuanitai suited them precisely. Her
hair was a silky black, her eyes dark,
her tiny thin face was brown, and she re
semilled them and their children physically
to a remarkable extent. They took the
child, adopting tier by process of law. and
insisted that all evidence of her name end
history be destroyed. Immediately after
adopting the child they sailed for India.
Mi. Maywood was a man of independent
means and had become interested in mis
sions in India. He went there to take on
executive position connected with the
finances of Methodist missions. The May
wood family remained in India sixteen
years. They gave their little girl her
strange and musical name. Uuanitai (pro
nounced I neta), and the child believed
that she was theirs by birth and not by
adoption. Scarcely a wish In tlie life of
the slender, oval-faced dark-eyed daugh
ter remained ungratified. The boys Were
devoted to their little sister. Like all
American and European families in India
the Maywoods employed o big retinue of
native servants-, and the attended
like a princess. She learned the soft jan
gle of native tongues, the queer supersti
tions of the natives, and came to love the
queer land of snows and parched plains
where sils the "God in his car" and often
the potter’s thumb has a trick of slipping
for strange fates.
When tiie World’s Fair year arrived,
the iMaywood family- decided to return to
America. They truveled leisurely through
Prance and England, stopping ihree
months in‘ Paris and three in London.
I lien they came to Chicago and stayed
through the season of the fair, after
ward going to New York to live at the
Metropolitan Hotel. Unanltal was placed
in Miss Phelan’s school In New York, and
graduated there after a couple of years.
She then came to India mi |>olls to Mrs.
May Wright Sewall’s school. After a
term there the girl went on a visit to
relatives of her foster parents in Jack
sonville, 111. In Jacksonville she met a
handsome young fellow, Will Le Clerque
by name. He was there with his father,
a fine-looking, middle-aged man of sll
dierly bearing. The girl and Willie Le
Clerque fell in love with each other, und
when she went hack to New York they
began a correspondence.
illie Le Clerque?" repeated Mrs.
Maywood In n frightened voice when the
girl told her of it, and all the family fell
inlo strange confusion at tlie name. Unu
nilia was puzzled, although she had. of
course, no suspicion of the real state of
"Heie's a mystery." she thought, "and
I’ll find out what it is."
The Maywoods meantime emjdoyed a
lawyer anil sent detectives on the trail of
the Le Clerques. One night when all of
the family were out except herself and
Fred -Maywood, the oldest son. an attor
ney's card came.
"I'll see him." she said, In all the pride
of 18 years old, and Ihe only' daughter of
"No. I’ll see him,” Interposed Fred.
"Why?" said the girl.
"Never mind.” replied Fred; "I'll see
him myself, and you needn't come down."
Uuanitai felt hurt and more resolved than
ever to solve the my stery tha' nil seemed
to understand, except herself.
She llstend at ihe keyhole. They wore
talking of an adopted child, property, or
phan asylum, etc. When Fred come out
she asked what It all meant.
"We were discussing your cousin, who
is nn adopted child, you know," said Fred
and the girl felt partly satisfied. Hut not
quite. An East Indian air seemed to have
blown nltout the Maywoods in the New
York hotel, and everything lent Itself to
Jugglers’ delusions. She was sent away
then to visit a foster aunt In Fort Wayne
"That’s the I rest wav to get rid of all
thoughts of Willie Le Clerque,” reasoned
The aunt, as It happened, had opposed
the adoption of the daughter by the May
woods. Either to see what effect the
story would have on the girl, or to grati
fy a slight revenge, she told her the story
of her adoption.
"You are ti foundling." she said. "You
' have no patents and a home."
Putting together what she 1 Vod lieird
! from ihe lawyer, Uuanitai decided at once
that the story must he true. She learned,
too, that her real name was Le Clerque.
She went hack to New York, but said
.nothing to uny of the family except Fred.
The foster brother confirmed the story,
and fhe two. on their own responsibility,
employed a lawyer to try to ferret oui the
Le Clerque family. He hurried to Jackson
ville to find thar Willie Clerque and
his father were gone, and he could set ro
trace of them At Rochester he had bet
ter success. The aunt and the doctor who
had taken the child Uuanitai to 'he or
phans' borne, were both dead, but the
nurse arid others of the family were liv
ing. They admitted having spirited the
'•hild away, and a single line in the records
of the asylum, with the date pieced out
the rest of the story. Four years after
the birth of the children, the father, I>=•
Clerque had returned to Rochester, and
had kidnapped the boy from hie mother.
Mr?. Le Clerque, frantic with grief, had
gone West to take up the search for her
boy, and the relatives end lost frar* of
her. At last accounts she was in Chicago.
Further than this the lawyer could not
get. He turned over to Uuanitai docu
ments signed by her relatives stating the
facts of her birth, except that they' left
it to appear, that the mother herself had
been a party to the scheme of placing the
little girl in an orphan asylum. It was
ascertained, too. that the girl? mother be
longed to a well-known and prominent
family, while her father was in the en
gineer corps of the army.
At this stage of the story the Maywoods
met reverses, losing a large part of their
property. They moved from New York to
Indiana a little over two years ago.
Uuanitai conceived a plan of coming to
Chicago to find work. She knew' that she
was an adopted child, and this made her
anxious to support herself. In addition
she had a childish hope of in some way
finding her mother here. She was oppos
ed by all the family', but finally had her
way. Out of the pin money which had
been hers in prosperous days she had
saved SSOO. Her father gave her letters to
many well-known people in Chicago who
had been ids friends for years—among
them S. E. Gross.
“Now take these letters, my child. ’ he
counseled, “and as soon as you are in
Fhh ago you can present them to my
friends. If they' don’t find work for you
they will watch over you a little, I hope.’’
Rut Uunanitai had ideas of her own.
and he?e ideas were independent. She
put the letters away in her trunk, rented
a room at the Avon, o flat building on
Prairie avenue, near Cottage Grove, ave
nue, and set out to find work. She had
conjectured that she might get some sort
of clerical work among the church papers
or church publishing houses.
“No,” rhey all said, “we have more
cl* rks than we can take care of. What
you had better do is to become a dea
coness. You know India and you would
make a first-class woman missionary.”
But Uunanitai had her own opinions
on missionaries and they w-ore not very
orthodox. She decided that she would
not be a deaconess. She scoured the
city for work, and as time went on she
hesan to get discouraged.
One of the women in the boarding
house noticed it, and the next Sunday
she said. “Now, we have a club meeting
this afternoon, and I want you to go
along with I especially want you
to meet my friend, Mrs. Smith and her
son. Mrs. Smith Is very fond of girls,
and although she has none of her own,
she has brought up several. They are nil
gone now. and nothing would please her
better than to meet you. She might find
you some work. > r ou know.” After several
invitations the girl decided one day to go

It’s too bad,” said Mrs. Shaw. “We
must go again next week, for 4he meet
ing Is at Mrs. Smith’s house on Drexel
boulevard. You will be delighted with
her son, Willie Le Clerque.” Uuanitai
fell into a fit of trembling and grew white
as paper, much to her friend’s astonish
ment. The girl said nothing, although she
was all eagerness during the week for
the day’ of the club meeting to come. She
went, and instantly recognized Mrs. Smith
ns her mother by on old picture taken
when her mother was years younger. Wil
lie Le Clerque was not in the city, and

"Mv own mother thought differently.”
said the girl, with great self-control. “She

was tlnv baby.” And then she told her
mother the whole story, only omitting
“I can’t understand it.” sighed the
mother when the girl’s story was ended.
“It seems incredible that any woman
should give up her own child.”
“And here are the papers that prove it
all,” said Uuanitai. as she brought out
the packet of documents.
As the mother read, the truth of the
strange story became apparent to her.
She cried for joy, and the girl cried with

in o measure to the girl’s reunion with

Willie Le Clerque is as devotedT to hie

The story of the finding of the boy by
his mother, after he had been kidnapped
from her by the father, is another side
of the romance. Mrs. Le Clerque came
to Chicago in search of her husband end
her boy*. She found no one here of that
name, but heard that in Connorsville. Ind.,
there was a man called Le Clerque. She
went there and put up at the only hotel
in the place.
“Did you ever hear of any’ one in this
town named Lr Clerque?” she asked the
landlady’ after dinner.
“Le Clerque? Yes. a man and his boy.
They’ board here regularly. Their room
is the one adjoining yours,” said the land
Mrs. I>* Clerque contrived to catch a
glimpse of the father and boy next morn
ing without being teen, and recognized
them as her husband and son. She w'ent
to the village school that morning, took
the child away and boarded a train for
Chicago with him. Afterward an ar
rangement was made by which the boy*
remained a timY with one parent and
then with the other. Mrs. Le Clerque
was divorced and married a Mr. Smith.
Uuanitai Le Clerque is now living with
her mother and stepfather in an apart
ment building on Cottage Grove avenue,
opposite Washington Park, near Fifty
fifth street. The resemblance between
the two Is apparent, but not striking.
Uuanitai lias bln k hair, cut short and
curly. Her forehead is broad, her face
oval, and her eyes large and dark. She
is petite, with a musical voice, and viva

but her hair in snow white. She naud

Chinamen of High Class Are Court
eon? to All About Theiu.
From the Chicago Chronicle.
If one gauges national refinement by
the mien and carriage of its people, the
Chinese are entitled to a high place among
the children of men. A Chinese official
in full costume is a most imposing fig
ure and carries himself with great dig
nity and self-possession, albeit he is us
ually some four or five inches shorter
than the average American. In this re
spect he owes much to his long dress,
but more to the patient study of an art
now almost monopolized among Ameri
cans by aspirants to the triumphs of the
stage. There Is not a single awkward
movement as the Chinese gentleman hows
his visitor into his house or supplies him
from his own hand with the cup of tea
which is indispensable to an interview.
Not until his gues-t is seated will the
Chinese host venture to take up his posi
tion on the right hand of the former; and
if. in the course of an excited conversa
tion, either should raise himself, how
ever slightly, from a sitting posture, it
i*§ the bounden duty for the other to do
so, too. No Chinese gentleman will sit
while his equal stands. Occasionally,
where it is not intended to be over-re
spectful to a visitor, a servant w’ill bring
in the tea—one cup in each hand. Then,
standing before his master and the guest,
he will cross his arms, serving the guest,
who is to his right, with the left hand,
his master with the right. The object
of this is to expose the palm—in Chinese
the heart—of either hand to each re
cipient of tea. It is a token of fidelity
