The custom of gentlemen making calls
on new year's day is a very pleasant on*
and rightly conducted is productive of
much good. Until the ladies had determined to throw open their houses aad
receive during certain specified banrs on
the first day of the year, ther* was no
place open to gentlemen without homes
but the saloon where of course a welcome
awaited them. The opportunity afforded
however must not be abated.. Aay
stranger may call in company witk a gen
tleman who is known to the lady, or one
of the ladies teceiviag at a given' plar*.
Any one desiring 10 make calls can .easily arrange to go with some known person. None of the ladies receiving will
provide any wine or intoxicants* Th*
hours'for calling should, be ttrictly rib-
served. The best way witl. be. for aach
gentleman to cut oul the , published Hist
and take it with him as a guide. Printed
cards' may be used by callers, bit the
best ftim is to simply write them, l*��v .
ing at each place visited one Card (tt

The exposure of "Dr." Henry B.
Rogers, the spiritualistic fraud and
medium, is the talk of the city, says
the Now York Herald. No one, except
those, perhaps, who are in the same
line of business, cuuld be found to express anything but the strongest satisfaction tliut ho had been uo thoroughly unmasked' und placed behind
the bars.
Ho may escape with no very severo
IMiilshiue.it lor liavlng taken m nsy by
.'. trlok or detfee," from Neal Glrard,
who visited hla seances, but he will
find it a difficult matter to evade tbe
penalty for bis felonious assault upun
Detective Browne, of the Central Office, whom be sought to brain with a
hatchet when exposed at tho seance
held ln bis flat, No. 100 East Seventy-
sixth street, last Sunday night,
Rogers was arraigned ln tbe York*
villo Police Court jesterday morning
on both charges. Magistrate Crane
continued the examination until two
o'clock this afternoon, holding liim in
$1,500 ball on the charge uf felonious
assault, and $:(J(i on the other charge.
Mrs. Matilda Chadwlck, the "spltH,'
was held In $500 ball on the charge
of fraudulently obtaining money. Her
examination was nlso continued until
this afternoon. Ellas S. Whitmore, the
big Spiritualist, who attempted to release the "spirit" from the grasp of
Detective Foye, aud who was
charged with Interfering with an officer, was discharged by the court after
receiving a severe lecture.
It was shortly before eleven o'clock
that the prisoners arrived In court
from police headquarters. A largo
crowd of Spiritualists and their .sympathizers were waiting lor the purpose of witnessing the proceediugs.
Rogers was the very picture of
misery and dejection. He plainly
showed that the night which he had'
passed ia the cell at Police Headquarters had not been a pleasant one.
Chadwlck, for whom some pity
was expressed���she being a poor woman, with three children to support,
and almost pcnnllesB besides���soemed
heartbroken and overcome with disgrace. WItmore also showed the effects of a night in a cell, and was a
much meeker individual than on Sunday night.
After Magistrate Crane had disposed of a number of minor cases the
prisoners, who had ln the meantime
answered the customary" question of
the clerk ol the court, were brought
before the bar.
E. H. Eenn, an aged Spiritualist und
lawyer, who was present at tbe
seance on Sunday night, appeared for
tho prisoners.
Deteclves Browne and Foye explained to the court in detail what
had taken place at the seance on
Sunday night nnd at thc same time
produced the disguises which Rogers
and the "spirit,*' ln the person of
Mre. Chadwlck, had worn at the
time of their atreet. These articles
were tied up In a bundle and consisted of half a doaan pieces of a
white cloth, dirty and torn, and a
blondo wig, which had fallen irom
Mra. Chadwlck's liead during the
straggle following her arrest.
Magistrate Crane had no doubt read
the account of the exposure before
coming to court and readily grasped
tho situation. Addressing Lawyer
Benn, he said: " Mr. Benn, I have
known you a great many years, and
I am surprised to see you in this case.
I have much respect for you, but I
cannot understand how you can represent such a man as Rogers,
"I think that that man ls one of
the biggest scoundrels tn the country.
He bas for years been following bis
practice of cheating people out of
money by false representations, but
more than that, he bos been working upon the most sacred feelings of
a human being, making them believe
that they could meet their dead
friends and relatives and hold communication with them.
"It ie a matter of congratulation
that Rogers has at lost been exposed
In such a very thorough and conclusive
manner, and for which the public
should feel very thankful."
Mr. Benn replied that he did not
by any means approve of what Rogers
had done, but that was omy his personal opinion. He declared that Rogers could produce several witnesses to
show that he had not taken money
for his seances improperly, ond that
he clnlmed that he bnd not assaulted
the detective with a hatchet. The
Magistrate replied that he did not
see. what excuse Roger* could, make ln
answer to the accusation against
him. He added that he did not believe
Mr. Bean could have any faith ln Rogers after what he had witnessed on
Sunday night.
The lawyer replied that he had no
sympathy with Rogers, and that lie
��� only appeared now as bis legal 'representative. Rogers was then asked
what be had to Bay In answer to his
charges. He declared that the money
which bad been paid bim on Thursday
night waa only a "collection," and
that It had been given to him without
any demand having been made for It.
By reason ot this he declared he had
done nothing Illegal.
In answer to the charge of felonious
assault on Detective Browne, he denied tbat he had assaulted the detec-
tectlve, and sold that be was on his
knees In the cabinet with the batchet
in his hand attempting to open a cupboard when a man rushed Into the
cabinet whom be did not know.   The
man, he insisted, did not    announce
that he was aa o.Ilcer, and Rogers resented the Intrusion.  Tbe man struck
him, knocked nim. down and kici.ed
him. He succeeded In getting to his
feet and grappled with the person ln
the dark. He denied tbat he had used
the hatchet ln any way to hurt tbe
The Magistrate said briefly that he
would continue tbe examination until this afternoon at 2 o'clock. He
fixed bail on tbe charge of felonious
assault at $1,500 and on the charge
of obtaining money by fraud or deceit
at $500.
Mrs. Chadwlck, the "spirit," pleaded not guilty. Her further examination was alBo postponed until this
afternoon at 2 o'clock and ball ln her
caso fixed at $500. Witmore declared that he did not know that Detective Foye was an officer when
the latter seized the "spirit," although as a matter of tact tbe detective announced several times ln a
loud tono that be was an officer of
the law and showed his shield. The
prisoner was inclined to be very penitent beforo the court and was discharged.
, Mrs. Chadwlck, whom I saw shortly
afterwurd, told me that she and tbe
" Doctor " were the only persons who
hnd personated spirits at the seances.
Sho Joined with Rogers on Thursday
night la personating the spirit of a
former editor of a spiritualists'
papor published lu Boston, and his
sou. Mr. Melville E. Smith, ol No.
14 West Ninety-fifth street, was
called for by these two " spirits"
and held a long conversation with
Mrs. Chadwlck told mo further that
Mrs. Rogers invariably told her what
to say when ono of the visitors In
the circle was supposed to be "called
for", by the "spirit." Mrs. Rogers
would always decide what person
the "spirit" was supposed to desire
to communicate with. She would
tell Mrs. Chadwlck wliat to say when
the latter appeared at the curtain
as a spirit, and would toll the spirit
to so frame her conversation as to
encourage tlie visitor to come again
to hold further communications.
Mrs. Chadwlck declared, with many
tears, that she did not know what to
do ln her present predicament. Her
husband, Who bus deserted her, Bhe
sold, lives far away, and has never
given her nny money to help support
herself and her three little children
since his departure. She assured ine
that she was penniless and did not
even have money enough to send a
messenger to friends aBking them to
look after her children.
Among the persons who were in
court yesterday wns President Newton, of the Splrltunllsts' Society. He
told mc that Rogers had acknowledged to him after his arrest on Sunday night that he and his wife had
been brought to perform these fraudulent manifestations by greed for
Rev. Dr. Talmage Enumerates Their
Mr. Newton snid that the fact that
Rogers was a sham and a charlatan
so far as his spiritual manifestations
were concerned had been fully proven
by the exposure. He declared that
he fully approved of tho work, which
he thought would go far toward
showing that honest spiritualists
would not countenance such frauds
perpetrated untler the ���auspices' of
Ont) of the strongest believers In the
ability of "Dr." Rogers has been Mr,
Melville E. Smith. He has been au almost constant attendant at the seances at "Dr." Rogers', and hns paid
much money to him and Mrs. Rogers
at various times, notably one for a
"spirit" painting, which be now lias
at his house.
He was not present at the seance on
Sunday night because of a slight Illness, His son, Mr. Smith, was at court
yesterday morning, and assured me
that his lather was thoroughly disgusted with Rogers and his fraudulent practices. The exposure made by
tbo Herald, lie eald, was conclusive,
and could not bo controverted. It
could not but meet with the hearty
approval oT all honest believers in

Paaaed Over the Bar Laat Evening In the
71et Year or Ble Age.
He was born tn Paris July 28th,
1824. His father was Alexandre Davy
Dumas, the author of the "Count of
Monte Cristo," and many other works;
and his grandfather was a French
general, born In Hayti. Alexander Dumas wrote novels, poems  and plnys,
but never attained the popularity ot
bis father. His "Dame aux Camellas,"
published In 1848, was the moet successful, perhaps, of all his writings.
It was an embellished history of a
woman ot the town with whom be
had been on Intimate terms, anil who
bad Just died, Dumas afterwards dramatized the story and It was played
to crowded bouses ln Paris and all
over France. Afterwards Verdi made

aary for the Safety of th. Boyi.
Washington despatch:   In his sermon to-day Rev. Dr. Talmage, preaching to  the usual crowded   audience,
took up a subject of universal Interest to young men.   His text was selected frnm II. Samuel xviil., 29, "Is
the young man Absalom safe?"
The heart of David, the father, wa*
wrapped up. In his boy Absalom. He
was a splendid, boy, judged by the
rules nt worldly .criticism. From the
crewn of his hesav*,o th* sole of hi*
foi t there was not aKsingle blemish.
The Bible gays that hV-had rich a
luxuriant shock of hair thaVfvwhcn
once a year it was shorn whatNi'as
cut off weighed over three pound*
But, notwithstanding all his brilliancy
of appearance, he was a bad boy and
broke his father's heart. He was
plotting to get the throne of Israel.
Ile had marshalled an army to overthrow his father's government. The
day of battle Had come. The conflict
was begun. David, the father, sat
between the gates of the palace waiting for the tidings of the conflict. Oh,
how rapidly his heart beat with emotion! Two great questions were to be
decided���the safety of his boy and the
continuance of the throne of Israel,
After awhile a servant, standing on
the top of the house looks off and
sees some one running. He ls .coming
with great speed, and the man on top
of the house announces the coming of
the messenger.'and the father watch-
es and waits, and ee soon as the messenger from the field of battle comes
within hailing distance the father
cries out.
It is a question ln regard to the establishment of his throne? Does he
say: "Have the armies of Israel been
victorious? Am 1 to continue In my
Imperial authority? Have I overthrown my enemies?" Oh, no! There
ls one question that springs from his
heart to the lip and springs from the
Up Into the ear of the beaweated and
bedusted messenger flying from the
battlefield���the question, "Is the young
man Absalom sate?" When It was
told to David, the king, that, though
his armies had been victorious, bis
son had been slain, the father turned
his back upon the congratulations of
tbe nation and went up the stair* of
his palace, his heart breaking as he
went, wringing his hands sometimes
and then again pressing them against
hts temples as though he would press
them ln, crying: "O Absalom, my ton,
my son I Would God I had died for
thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!"
My friends, the question which Lav-
Id, the king, asked in regard to hit
sr.n is the question that resounds, today ln the hearts of hundreds of parents. Yea, there are a great multitude of young men who know that thc
question of the text Is appropriate
when asked In regard to them, They
know the temptations by which tbey
are surrounded; they see so many who
started life with as good resolutions
as they have who have fallen in the
path, and tl ey are ready to hear me
ask the question of my text, "Is the
young man Absalom safe?" The fact
ls that this life Is full of peril. He
who undertakes It without the grace
of God and a proper understanding ot
the conflict Into which he Is going
must certainly be defeated. Just look
oft upon society to-day. Look at the
shipwreck of men tor whom fair
things were promised, and who started life with every advantage. Look
at, those who have dropped from high
social position, and trom great .fortune, disgraced tor time, disgraced for
eternity. All whjj sacrifice their Integrity come to overthrow. Take a
dishonest dollar and bury It ln the
center ot the earth and keep all the
rocks of the mountain on top ot It;
tben cover theae rock* with all the
diamonds of Golconda, and all the
silver of Nevada, and all the gold ot
California and Australia, and put on
top ot these all banking and moneyed
Institutions, and they cannot keep
down that one dishonest dollar. That
one dishonest dollar tn the center of
the earth will begin to heave and rock
and upturn Itself until It corns* to tbe
resurrection of damnation. "As the
partridge sltteth on egg* and hatcheth
them not, so be that getteth riches,
and not by right, shall leave them ln
the midst ot his days, and at bis end
���ball be a fool."
Now. what are the safeguards of
young men? -Tbe first safeguard of
which I wont to speak is a love of
home. There.are those who have no
Idea of the pleasures that concentrate
around that word "home." Perhaps
your early abode was shadowed with
vice or poverty. Harsh words and
petulance and scowling may have destroyed all the sanctity of that spot.
Love, kindness and self-sacrifice, which
have built their altar* ln so many
abodes, were strangers In your father's
house. God pity you, young man. You
never had a home. But a multitude ln
this audience can look back to a spot
that they never can forget. It may
have been a lowly roof, but you cannot
think of It now without a dash of emotion. You have seen nothing on earth
that so atlrred your soul. A stranger
passing along tbat place might see
nothing remarkable about It, but ohl
how much It means to you. Fresco on
palace wall does not mean ao much to
you as those rough hewn rafter*. Parks
and bowers and tree* at fashionable
watering places or country seat do not
mean so much to you aa that brook
that ran ln front of tha plain farm
bouse and singing under the weeping
willow*. The barred gateway swung
open by porter ln full dress doe* not
mean ao mucb to you a* tbat awing
gate, your sister on on* aide ot It and
you On tbe other. She, gone 15 year*
ago into gloryl Tbat scene coming
back to you to-day as you swept backward and forward on the gate, singing
the songs of your childhood. But there
ars those here who have their second
dwelling plaoe. It ls your adopted
home. Tbat also I* sacred for ever.
There.you established tbe first family
altar. There your children were born.
In that room flapped the wing of the
death angel. Under that roof, when
your work Is done, you expect to lie
down and die. There Is only one word
ln all the language that can convey
IS.     *h��
your Idea of that place, and that word
Is "bome." _._   *
Now. let me say that I never knew a
man who was faithful to bi* early and
adopted home who was given over *t
the aame time to any grot* form ot
wickedness. It you find more enjoyment In the olub room, ln the literary
society, In th* art talon, than you do
In those unpretending home pleasures,
you are on th* road to ruin. Though
you may be cut oft from your early associate*, and though you may be separated trom all your kindred, young
man. Is there not a room *omewhere
that you can call your own? Though It
be the fourth story ot a third-class
boarding house. Into that room gather
books, pictures and a harp. Hang your
mother's portrait over the mantel. Bid
unholy mirth stand back from that
threshhold. Consecrate some spot In
that room with the knee of prayer. By
the memory of other days, a father's
counsel, a mother's love and a sister's
confidence call It home.
Another safeguard for these young
men Is Industrious habit. There are a
great many people trying to make
their way through the world with their
wits Instead of by honest toil. There
is a young man who comes from the
country to the city. He falls twice before he is as old as his father was
when he first saw the spires of the
great town. He Is seated in hla room
at a rent of 1)2,000 a year, waiting for
the banks to declare their dividends
nd the stocks to run up. After awhile
gets Impatient. He tries to Improve
jils***penmanshlp by making copy plates
of otn*��r merchants' slgnaturesl Never
mind���aU. is right In business. After
awhile hes'lios bis estate. Now ls the
time for hlnTs'o retire to the country,
amid the flocks and the herds, to culture the domestic virtues.
Now the younimen who were *������!
schoolmates in bo7f*?��d will come, and
with their ox teams draw him logs, and
with their hard haMs will help to
heave up the castle. Wat Is no fancy
sketch. It Is everyday We- I should
not wonder if there was fi, rotten beam
ln that palace. I should nttt wonder If
God should smite him wit* dire sickness and pour into hi* cup a ofter draft
that will thrill him with unbearable
agony. I should not wonder\'f that
man's children grew up to be ta, h'm a
disgrace, and to make his life a MM?**
I should not wonder if that man oileda
dishonorable death and were tuiftPj���
Into a dishonorable grave, and tRf"
went Into the gnashing of teeth. TH*
way of the ungodly shall perish. \ i
sary platform with a clergyman, who*.
. Oh, young man, you must bave Inaus-lJ
try of bead or hand or foot or perish!
Do not have the idea that you can get
along ln the world by genius. The
curse of this country to-day Is geniuses
���men with large silt conceit and nothing else. The man who proposes to
make his living by bis wit* probably
has not any. I should rather be an ox,
plain and plodding and useful, than to
be an eagle, high flying and good for
nothing but to pick out the eyes of
carcasses. Even In the garden of
Eden It was not safe for Adam to be
Idle, so God made him a horticulturist,
and If the married pair had kept busy
dressing the vines they would not have
been sauntering under the tree, hankering after fruit that ruined them and
their posterity. Proof positive of the
fact that when people do no tend to
their business they get Into mischief.
"Go to the ant, thou'sluggard. Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no overseer or guide, providsth her
food ln the summer and gathereth her
meat In the harvest." Satan is a.roaring Hon. and' you can never destroy
him by gun, or pistol, or sword. The
weapons with which you are to beat
him back are pen and type and hammer
and adze and saw and pickaxe and
yardstick and the weapon of honest
toll.   Work, work or die.
Another safeguard that I want to
present to young men Is a high Ideal
of life. Sometime* soldiers going Into
battle shoot Into the ground Instead
of Into the hearts of their enemies.
They are apt to take aim too low, and
It ls very often that the captain, going Into conflict with his men, will cry
out, "Now, men, aim high!" The fact
ls that In life a great many men take
no aim at all. The artist plans out his
entire thought before he puts It upon
canvas, before he takes up the crayon
or the chisel. An architect thinks out
tbe entire building before the workmen begin. Although everything msy
seem to be unorganized, that architect
has In his mind every Corinthian column, every Gothic arch, every Byzantine capital. A poet think*.out tha
entire plot of his poem before he begins to chime the cantos of tinkling
rhythms. And yet there are a great
many men who start the Important
structure of lite without knowing
whether It ia going to be a rude Tartar1* hut or a St. -Mark's cathedral,
and begin to write out the Intricate
poem of tholr life without knowing
whether ll Is to be a Homer's Odyssey
or a rhymster's botch. Out of 1,000,
999 have no life plot. Booted and spurred and caparisoned, they hasten along,
and I run out and say: "Hallo, man!
Whither away?" "Nowhere!" they
say. O young man, make every day's
duty a ailing up of the great life plot
Alas, that there should be on this sea
of life so many ships that seem bound
for no port! They are swept every
vlilther by wind and wave, up by the
mountains and down by the valleys.
They sail with no chart They gaze
on no star.   Tbey long tor no harbor.
0 young man, have a high Ideal and
press to It and II will be a mighty
safeguard. There never were grander
opportunities opening before young
men than art opening now. Young
men of tbe atrong arm, and of th*
stout heart, and of the bounding step,
1 marshal you to-day for a great
Another safeguard Is a respect tor
the Sabbath. Tell me bow a young
man spend* hi* Sabbath and I will
tell you what are his prospect* ln business, and I will tell you what are his
prospect* for the eternal world. God
haa thrust Into our buay life a toured
day when we are to look after our
soul*. Is It exorbitant, after giving
six days to the feeding and clothing,
of these perishable bodies, that God
should demand one day for the feeding
and clothing of the Immortal soul?
Our bodies are sevtn day docks, and
they need to be wound up, and. If they
are not wound up they run down into
the grave. No man ean continuously
break the Sabbath -and keep bis phya-
ioal and mental health. Ask those aged
men, and they Will tell you they* never
knew men who continuously broke th*
Sabbath who did not fail ln mind, body
or moral principle. 'A manufacturer
gave this as his experience. He said:
"I owned a factory on the Lehigh.
Everything prospered. I kept the Sabbath and everything went on well. But
one Sabbath morning I bethought my-
* icV
would Invent that ���hutftl* before sunset, and I refused all food and.drink
until I had completed tbat shuttle. By
sundown I had completed It Tbe ttext
day, Monday, I ahowed to my workmen and friends thia new shuttle. Tbey
all congratulated me on my great success. I put that shuttle Into play. I
enlarged, my butanes*, but, sir, that
Sunday's work cost me 130,000. From
that day everything went wrong. I
failed in busines* and I lost my mill."
Oh, my friends, keep the Lord's day.
You may think It old fogy advice, bat
I give It to you now: "Remember the
Sabbath day and keep It holy. Six
days shalt thou labor and do all thy
work, but the seventh Is the Sabbath
of the Lord thy God. In It thou shalt
not do any work.' A man said that
he would prove that all this was a fallacy, and so he said, "I shall raise a
Sunday crop." And he. plowed the
field on the Sabbath, and then he put
In the seed on the Sabbath, and he
cultured the ground on the Sabbath.
When the harvest wa* ripe, he reaped
it on the Sabbath, and he carried It
Into the mow on the Sabbath, and
then ht stood out defiant to hts Christian neighbors and Uid, "There, that
Is my Sunday crop, and It ls all garnered." After awhile a storm oame
up, and a great darkness, and the
lightnings of heaven struck the barn
and away went his Sunday crop.
There Is another safeguard that I
want to present. I have saved tt until the last because I want It to be the
more emphatic. The great safeguard
for every young man Is the Christian
rellglon.Nothlng can take the place ot it.
You may have graclousness enough to
put to the blush Lord Chesterfield, you
msy have loreign languages dropping
from your tongue, you may discuss
laws and literature, you may have a
pen of unequalled polish and power,
you may havo so much business tact
that you can get the largest salary
in a banking house, you may be as
sharp as Herod and as strong as Samson, and with as long locks as those
which hung Absalom, and yet you
have no safety against temptation.
Some of you look forward to life with
great despondency, 1 know It. I
Been ii ln your faces from time to time.
You say, "All the occupations and professions are full, and there's no chance
for me." O young man, cheer up. 1
will tell you how you can make your
fortune. Seek first the kingdom of
God and. His righteousness, and all
other things will be added. I know
you do not want to be mean In this
matter. You will not drink the brimming cup ot life and then pour the
dregs on God's altar. To a generous
Savior you will not act like that; yot)
will not have the heart to act like that
nat is not manly.  That Is not honor-
ble.    That Is not brave.    Your great

havo seen oae of tbe smartost ol
these entertainments. Such a pretty girl, ah me! When ber engagement was ano'iancod last spring thore*
was much weeping and gnashing 'of
teeth. In the classic shades of Harvard by deluded youths, wha'bod
each fondly fancied that he wotftbe

and caught crabs when he tried for
a place on the crow. He was last
in his class, and lost tn the opinion
of his fellow-men, but bis fortune ran
up lato tbe millions and the names
of his family were enrolled among,
the saarsd Hundred and Fifty ot
Gotham. Arabella knew on which
-side her bread was buttered when she
snared this despised and rejected
specimen; she bad not struggWtlitip
and' on through Harvard assemblies
and suburban hall parties to tbo
paradise ol dinners and private balls
in vain, and she enjoyed to the full
the garrulous newspaper rejoicings
ever the capture of Another parti
of New York by another Boston girl.
Tho Vander Duncks pulled wry
faces, I promise you, over the affair.
Still, Willy's money was hi* ow*
and tliough Arabella was neither a
Cabot nor a Lowell, nor yet a' Sat-
tonnttill, her complexion, figure and
nmnner wero all that could be desired. .Boston nnd Now York are200

could be kept at a comfortable distance, so they made the best of it
-anil accepted the 'situation gracefully, sending on silver toys, cups and

of tlie family tree. They even had
her on for the supplementary opera
season and put her In the front sen,t
of their box on the grand $ler, pleased that her fresh beauty attracted
���so many lorgnettes, while poor Willie
in the background twisted his little
mustache and listened to the music,
tliough he didn't know Elsa's dream
from "Oh, Promise Mel"
Well, Willy had not Intended putting on the holy bonds of matrimony
for a year or two at least. In fact,
there were momenta this summer
when, sitting solitary In the bow of
his cutter, he bad tried' to remember
just how he had become engaged, and
whether It hnd been hut Idea or Ata-
lielln's. Arabella was renowned for
brilliancy .and originality, and It
t-eemed as it the luggestlons might
huve come from her, that being dull
and slow ot speech he must be sad,
and being sad he must be ln love, and
being ln love, with whom but her?

abundance of tlie cut glass that came
with her card pn. the day before the
wedding, when every quo had con-

All this was thrilling, and even
more so was the trousseau, which
filled ��� two jooras., The underclothes���'

Arabella's girl friends Into shrieks .of
ecstasy. She had brought tbem from
Paris ln September; all the **��� ltjvely
filmy things ol finest linen' and em-
[iroldery and lace, with! pale pink
ribbons to 'dlstnctlon, pink Being her
pet.color. There were silk petticoats
ol-'every hue, warranted to rustle till
tbey were rags; peignoirs of all delicate silks and laces, eaut-de-llts, In
���vhljjh one could fancy pretty curly-
hulroil Arabella looking like a dream;
silk stockings, smart shoes and slippers, exquisite handkerchiefs, with
monograms wrought by French nuns,
veils, gloves by dozens; stays of pink
and Mut) and. white., ibrocatld, some
even ffowercft'a -id pompadour. Here,
too, -were the, great piles Cf bouse
linen for the bride's planishing,. 0111-
broldered sheets and pillow cases, towels, costly damask napery and tablecloths. The maternal auii,t rolled *up
hor eyes till nothing could bb seed but
the whites In a pious jJAtye* that.no
eyll would come out ot sush wicked
profusion and prodigality.    '        ' *
In the next room flourished the
gowns and wraps. What feeble pen
shall describe their glories? Flummery mAdc tke*-n all, and Flummery's
prices, as Js well known ln Boston,
have drlvea mdn to drink and separated faminos, But Arabella's papa,
In a reckless moment, had given her
cart blanche, and she took full advantage ot It, arguing with herself ln
her hard little heart* that if he wont
into insolvency immediately after
the ceremony anil only puld 19 cents
oa tbe dollar, It would only be what
Flummery deserved fpr charging . so
outrageously, .and that when It was
all over 'Willy could set him, on ils
feet; again .financially. Flummery,
keenly alive to the honor of clotulug
a .future Vauder Dunck, had out-done
herself, as envious gossips admitted.
The ball dress of pink brocade and
spangled tulle and. snfble, tbe dinner
gown ot yellow satin and point lace,
the violet velvet coat and skirt
(with an especial vle'w off the horse
show), the Louis Qulnze water of
rose-flowered brocade and .'waistcoat
ot ailver *,nil white embroidery, the
dainty house? ' dresses of pretty "taffetas and' the golng-awrfy gown of
dark blue, with embroideries, lur
and what not, the sumptuous evening wraps of silk and tur and chiffon'
ruffles, the hats and bonnets from a
mammoth blaek affair with plumes to
a tiny theatre toque oti rosebuds
and lace���these were the things that
filled Arabella's .silly soul with Joy.
These were what being)' married
meant to ber���Willy was al Very unimportant part ot it all. She
thought .of nothing else, and belore
tho lusfetay of her girlhood dawned
she had tried on everything twenty
times over, and reduced her Wtrtst to
19 Inches, the requirement of the
new gowns and the new , French
sta/a*.   -
At lost it dawned���the clay 1 At 9
o'clock Arabella was uji and doing.
In the hands of the manicure, tbe

polished her pretty finger nails, put
her pretty pink .toes in 'order     and

- which
.there .was really method, and a small
array of caterer's men taking possession of the lower regions, drove the
cook and the kitchen maid quite beside themselves by demanding all
sorts ol culinary utensils of which
tliey bad never, heard.
"Bang-Maree I" said tile cook In,*
Ire, "Who ever heard ot such "things?'
If Miss Arabella can't < be married
with the pots and pans she's been
used to all ber life, why, then, she'd
better stay single I"
Arid the, English Halters from the
club chuckled and sniggered, though
they were not quite clear In their
own minds as to what a Bang-
Maree might be.
"Eleven o'clock! Arabella was bound
���to be at the church floor at high
noon; If ever a bride were on time,
she meant, .to 4�� that bride. The
whole house was In a flurry. A womnn had'come.from Flummery's to
see that The wedding dress went* on
properly, and was1'at that Instant

bo tight- that the delicious pink color
on Arabella's checks deepened with

blush. 01 the richest ivory satin,
thick at a boasd, the glistening
train lay on tho floor ol that maiden
boudoir, the pliant young figure .Was
encased In*the same, material wtth
revers ol beautiful old English' point
lying out on the hugs sleeves, and
round the high collar went ii"f trlng
of good-sized pearls, which. were
Willy's gift on the auspicious occasion. Mamma heraelf put pn the veil
.of tolls many breadths wide, and
floating behind, like a fairy * thing,
And a Uttle wreath of real orange
blossom* sent up from Florida, by one
ol the rejected kept H. In place. The
servants and all the relative* staying in the house were summoned to
gat* oh' this vision, - and Oh'd and
'ah'd to Arabia's perlect satisfaction. 'She was- very . much pleased
with tffiat she sow ln the looking-
glass, for nothing lovelier could
ever have been kopwn ln Boston. The
four bridesmaids, were waiting below, crisp In white muslin, with tiny
ruffle ot. yellow lace, pink ribbons and
huge black hat* with pink feather**;
they had pink bouquets of roses, .and
wore each an open heart composed
of pearls and diamonds alternating,
which i Arabella presented Cand Willy
paid for later on!)   <
Presently the carriago rolled* up*
with great care the bride waB bundled
In witb her mammoth -bouquet of
white roses���and she saw with a.thrill
of del'ght how the whole square where
the church etb'od, as she approached,
was choked up with other carriage*
���a- vast, curious crowd hung round
the awning. The bridesmaids were
waiting. The' Ushers wore hurrying*,

An Agullor, Col., despatch says:
Schlatter, tbe healer, who ls Journeying'on a white horse to W'ew'.Mexlco,
stopped' yesterday' In Rodlje for several hours at the house ot W. C. Johnson, where ho treated a little child
oi the latter with results which are
said to have -been surprising. '
The healer then departed for tbe
south, following the telephone line
toward Trinidad, via Agullar. He
stopped and treated the persons who
Insisted on following Htm, until finally
he was left alone on his journey,-with
the exception of William Wright, an
old acquaintance, who uaed to sit and
talk for. hours with the healer when
tbe latter was engaged In mending
shoes in Denver. ...
Wright Is on hls-jvay to Texas, anil
he was as much surprised to see the
herfler as* the latter was to see hlin.'
Together they rode, and for the first
time since leaving Denver Schlatter
has spoken freely with a human being.
To Wright lie told bow he arranged
to leave the Fox ������esideJit'e 'lh Denver.
The day he left there was a conference
between the intimate friends ot ^the
healer as to. a method of stopping thi
Belling ot places ln the line. It "ad
become" known that wealthy "Eastern
parties had paid as high as. jsl(> Ipr
a place, ond Sclilatte'F'salu plalnlj��,
that the practice must, stop or he.
would cease' his labors::
Alter conferring fur "an hour no
method could be devised, ajvnd it' was
decided that the healer sliould disappear.. Clarence Clark, wjio was one
of those at the conference, agreed to
find Schlatter a horse, anil escort him
out of the town tbat n*tght. Ab per
arrangement, Schlatter left aliout
midnight and followed the gulf tracks
toward Pueblo.
As to his .future, ��� Schlatter told'
Wright he was not clear, except that
he felt that the Father bad told bim
to go to Albuquerque, Where be wtuld

Itself In my' mind at frequent inter*
vols ttfat I was, about to Ipam ot A

the people of the world.
"The thought has become so vivid at times that I felt that It wou.d
be the, will ot the Father after a certain time to latinate to the world
that a period* of evolution' was about
to end and that the change would
take place amid great upheaval J' ,

THE WEEKLY NEWS. Wgg_, ie****.
On January 1,1896, Mr. C. F. Whitney
withdraws from all connection with The
WEBHtv News to take etcltitive charge
of the job department which it fast
becoming of itself an important business.
We regard tlie message of President
Cleveland, to Ciin_re��s on the Veneiuel
an question as a piece nf jingoism.
Congress appears tobe engaged in the
name amusement, aad hat patted a
retiilutiem appropriating Jtoo,oio to
provide ai cotamitiion to determine
whether a little (trip of territory not
���01th $100,000, belong! to Veneiuel* or
Bagtaad. Who caret? Th* commission
���ty aot report, or if ts only after many
years. But it will be a source of irritation. The Monroe doctrine at applied
to Sattth America it an absurdity. Ther*
will he ns war only something for a little
while ts talk about. There 1* too touch
sens* and wisdom in both countries to
eomaiit such a crime against civilisation.
The matter in ditpute it not worth any
teriout contention. We think, however,
with.* regard to tht United States, that
Sif land ihoiild of her own volition,
have prepoted arbitration. That it th*
inn method to settle national difficulties.
A raort is armt thould not be thought
of hy lh* government sf a civilized
nttiM. But there it no danger. ' We
or* bound together by ties of blood ud
commerce, aad a, blow against the M*ee
net pMtptrity of ih nation, cannot be
���Mtewtd sti-aoM injury to both. "Let
ut hav* peace.''

The lartner of no other country
lives better or so much enjoys life as
��� doon the American farmer who raises
stock and a 'vnrlety ol crops. The
.great fuctor In cheap production

with conditions of life which no

The lumberman grinds his axe before he undertakes a large job. Those
long evenings allow the farmer mueh
time to prepare himself; to study
the leading principles and become
familiar with the approved methods
of practice which relate to his affairs. Discovery and Invention have
done wonderful things to make his
work pleasant and his rewards

���ollegcs have . prepared courses of
home reading which are extremely
valuable, and uo farmer can afford

Scott a* we win, the reading farmers are the prosperous farmers, not
because of their Intelligence only, nor
because they learn what ls dome by
othor men, but because of the ability
for successful management which has
eome to them through the mental development nnd discipline which their
reading has given them. Their Intellectual powers are quickened and
their business capacities enlarged. .
An Ohio farmer eays that" he has
continued proof of the valuo of cow
peas as a preparation for potatoes ln
clayey loams. This year his peas were
worth more at plant food for potatoes
than wns an average crop of wheat.
He has 18 acres of peas growing to be
turned undor for next year's crop.

We learn slowly. To develop an animal early and to Its best requires a
well balanced ration, regular feeding,
a comfortable bed, good shelter fit

It is -not possible for a tree to tie

it. In digging and planting some of
the roots are lost, and as thore are
not now so many rootlets at work. It
Is well to cut away sdmb of the
branches . to make things square.
Again, if '��� tho tree ie unshapely, trim
off the stragglers, to make a symmetrical growth. Sometimes there
aro too many brunches to admit the
air freely,-or for development of
fruit, or for thn strength of tlio lumbs;
such conditions should suggest their

It is possible that In rich soil
young trees may grow so rapidly

growth by root pruning. Dig n trench

growth can bo promoted by plucking off the flowers, just as a gardener

Th. Sufferer'Une of Northumberland
Co's Beet KnDwn.Mea.
(From tho Trenton Advocate.)
Mr. John Frost's case is a most remarkable one. He Is one ot the best
known residents In the county ol
Northumberland, being a rotlred farmer of most ample means, and having ftriaMHal dealings.;wlth hundreds
throughout the townships. We have
known him intimately tor over ten
years. From him we gleaned the following facts ln February last: "I
was born In England and nt twelve
years ol ago arrived ln Canada with
my parents, who settled In Prince
Edward county and remained there
for tliroo years. We theu moved to
Unwdon township ln tho neighboring county of Hastings. For thirty
years I was a resident of Hawdon,
threo years I resided In Seymour
township -and 1 am at present, and
have beeri tor tho post tdn years, a
resident ot Murray township. For
thirty yoars I have beon a martyr to
rheumatism. During that time I
havo been treated by scores of doctors ond found partial rellel Irom
but due. I have during, the some period tried Innumerable remedies, but all
Getting Iuto my Rig was Agonltlng.
failed to cure me. Scarcely a month
passes that I am not laid up, and
frequently I am confined to bed six
or eight weeks, unable to more hand
or foot and suffering untold agonies.
Two well known doctors told me one
time that I would have to bave an
arm taken oft to save my Ule. I tell
you I have been a great sufferer ln
my time and I would give anything
to find relief. My business onuses me
a groat deal of driving and getting
ln and out of my rig is agony.
Knowing his history to be true and
anxious that Dr. Williams' Pink Pill*
should have a severe teBt, wo prevailed on Mr. Frost, much against
his will,.'to givo them a trial. He
gof-lii boxes and commenced to use
thom. "'At thc start he smiled ntour
confidence lu the pills. Wo saw him
after he hnd used tho first box and
he admitted some relief and said he
believed there* was .something In the
���remedy. Ile continued "their use and
by.'the time- he.baft, finished the six
boxes lis was as sordid and proud a
mail' as could . be .(pund ln five counties. A coupleol months have pasfSed
since tho cute -was! effected, and1 we
deferred giving a history ol the case
In .order that we oould see Ior a certainty that the cure was permanent.
We see him several times a week,-actively attending to bis business and
at all timet loud ln his praise of Pink
Pills, All who know Mr. FroBt know
that his word is.as good as his bond.
Yesterday we said to him, " Now,
Jlr. Frost, do yb'ii really foel that
you are cured of rheumatism ? Do you
teal any. twinges of the old trouble
at all?" He replied, "I am curejl. The
Pink I'ills have thoroughly routed
the disease out ot my system and I
foel a new ihan. The use of the pills
has. given me new life and I am telling everyone I meet about the cure."
Such Is the case, and having known
Mr, Frost for years the sutlerer he
was, antl seeing him now active, and
almost youthful again, the rapid
change from fluttering to health
seems almost a miracle. However, we
are not at all surprised, for on * all
sides fre hear of curea effected by the
use of Pink' Pills. The druggists remark tholr rapid sale and the satisfaction they give tVtelf customers.

The Sort of Character Shakespeare
leant to Depict.
A Kingston Minister Regards Them
Sir Henry Irving addressed the students of Columbia College a few days
ago on "The Character of Macbeth."
The great actor was introduced by
President Low, and In tbe course of hli
remarks he said:
"The generally received opinion ot
���Macbeth' has been that of a good man
who has gone wrong under the influence of a wicked and dominant wife;
In the words of the writer of biographies, a man ol honor, led astray by
his wife, who murders bis benefactor
and becomes a monster of wickedness.
"This conception. In force for many
years In England, was mainly due to
the rendering of Lady Macbeth by
Mrs, Slddons, wnose personality lent
color to the view of an essentially
dominant woman.
"Now, I snould like to examine
briefly this proposition. We shall
find that Shakespeare has ln his text
given Macbeth tbe character of one
of the most bloody minded and hypocritical villains' of all the gallery of
portraits In literature."
Irving recited many extracts from
Shakespeare's text to show tbat Macbeth wa* villain through and through
from the start. It was he who lirst
broached the subject of the murder
of Duncan to his wile, and while all
through he plays with conscience his
resolution never slacked.
Bnakeepeare, be said, derived his
facts from Hollnsheds Chronicles, and
tbe story ol tbe Chronicle* throws
great light on tbe central conception of tbe play.
Before the, curtain rises Macbeth has
already conceived the Idea of mtrder.
That Idea lurks in his mind and he
broods over It more and more. A
new shock and impulse are given to
him by the prophecy of the witches.
Macbeth wus a thorough hypocrite.
His hypocrisy runs all through the
pluy. ��� In tlie presence of his wile he
pictures the appearance of tbe king
he hae killed. Lady Macbeth
couldn't stand It; she fainted, . and
was carrier! away. Moreover, Macbeth must bave been an atheist ana
a poet.
" Macbeth,"' continued Irving, " conveys the some idea as Lewis Carrol s
'Walrus and the Oysters.'- The carpenter sought out the largest oysters,
all the while holding ont his pocket
handkerchief before hla greedy eyes.
All through the play the worst deeds
are heralded by high ideas. That
Macbeth was very imaginative ls seen
strikingly in the oft quoted simile of
pity likened to a 'naked new born
babe,' etc.
"It ls sometimes said that Shakespeare did not intend to make Macbeth
a psychological study. Ue diu make
hlin so, and it is sufficient that we
find hi* Intent ln the result, (or
Shakespeare was not only the greatest dramatist and tbe greatest poet
ot all time, but he wae also a psychologist ol every phase ol human character and human thought, from the
loftiest to the basest.'"
In his peroration Irving thus summed up the character of Macbeth:
"A poetic mind, on which the pas-
sag** and suggestions of supernatural
thing* oould work; a nature sensitive to Intellectual emotion*, so that
one can Imagine him even ln his contemplation ot coming crimes to weep
for the pain of the da*tln*d victims;
self-torturing, self-examining, playing with oonsclense, ao that action
and reaction of poetic thought might
send emotional waves through the
brain, while" the resolution ws* as
grimly Ilxed as steal and th* heart
as cold as Ic*; a poet supremo ln the
power ol words, with vivid Imagination and quick sympathy of intellect;
a villain, cold-blooded, *elflsh, remorseless, with a true villain's nerve
and callousness when braced to evil
work, and the physical heroism of
those wbo are born to kill; a moral
nature, with only sufficient weakness to quake momentarily before
superstitions terrors; a man of sentiment and not of feeling. Such was
the     mighty     dramatic   character
which    Shakespeare   gave   to     the

A very earnest and impressive sermon, preached in the Congregational
Church last evening by Rev. A. W.
Richardson, says the Kingston Whig,
was Inspired by the action ol the
Christian Endeavorers ln Kingston,
and ln the United States, in publicly
praying for the conversion of Col.
Robert G. Ingersoll.
"Last Thursday,'* said the prettcher,
"iu the United States, the Christian
Endeavorers ttuited ln prayer for the
conversion ot iiouert G. Ingersoll, und
to-day in Kingston some uf the Endeavorers did tbe same, it muy seem
strange thut a Christian minister
shoulu speak a word in favor of Ingersoll, mum less dciend him. But we
stand to-day lu all the freedom of
our faith. Why? Because John Huss
wus burned, and Murtln Luther was
cursed; because men wero men und
If they did not believe as all others
believed they were not afraid to say
so, nor to go to the stake und seal
their faith with their lives. The ClttU-
tlaa religion has not a monopoly of
martyrs. The Hindoo mothers, who
throw their babes Into tne river Gauges, do so on account of their faith.
"I condemn the action of the
Christian Endeavorers more than I
can find words to express. Moreover,
I appear before you to defend Col.
Ingersoll. Perhaps 'condemn' is too
strong u word to use, and I bud better suy that I regret the action of
the Endeavorers. 1 regret It for two
reasons, first, because It was unwise
and Pharisaical, and second becauso
It won useless.
"When 1 hear ol or know of people
praying, as the Christian Endeavorers
did to-day, that someone else may be
converted to their way of thinking
���someone to whom God has given
the same quota of brains as to each
ol them���I think ot the case ot the
proud Pharisee, who publicly thanked
God that he was not as other men,
and the poor sinner who confessed his
sins and besought God to have mercy
upon him. The Endeavorers forget
that we are all the same In the sight
of God, when they request God to do
something that seems to them to be
right. Why should they    ���"���"*"*���* *<*

reminds me ol the man who preaches

abroad and we see the faults' and
shortcomings of others, but because
our eyes are tlxed on those at a distance from us we do not see our own
tunings. So, I regret the action of
tlie Christian Endeavorers regarding
Col. Ingersoll.
"Why should wc get so excited
about Col. Ingersoll? There have
been infidels before our time. Voltaire prophesied that the time would
come when there would be no Bibles.
Tet we have our Bibles to-day. and
Voltaire's books are very seldom seen,
and still more seldom read. Why
should we pray Ior the conversion ol
Robert Ingersoll, when, at our own
doors, within the sound ot the rolling
ol our organs, there are conditions
that should make us���aa Christians
���blush? In our police court, last
week, a woman, ol the most significant name of Preelove All, was accused of one of the most damnable
crimes���of prostituting her own
daughter, a girl sixteen year* of age.
And yet we pray for the conversion of
Ingersoll 1 Doesn't it make your blood
boil? Men, drunk and brutal, beat
their wives and neglect their children,
while we calmly stand ln our own
righteousness and pray for The conversion of Ingersoll,
I regret the action of the Christian
Endeavorers, not only because tt was
Pharisaical, and because of Its tor-
getfulness, but   also   because of Its
and allows Col. Ingersoll to use the
matchless eloquence He has given
him, against the Christian religion,
why should we interfere to teach
God Hla duty? Abraham's sacrillce
was rejacted by God because he bad
killed a man who had blasphemed
Jehovah, and had cursed His name.
It Jehovah can stand Ingersoll why
cannot we do so? Why should we
pray for his conversion ? It doe* no
good. If Ingersoll knows anything���
and he knows a good d-inl, a good
deal more than many of those who
prayed lor him���ho knows that there
Is a spiritual lite. He knows and admits that a righteous lite is a good
one, but he objects to many of the
things that have grown Into our
religion, and I agree with him In a
good many things. I will listen to
any man, I care not who he be, nor
what may be hts garb, who will tell
mo how to make this world better I
But I will not listen to any man
who will say a word against my religion.
"I condemn the spirit ot Ingersoll's
antagonists rather than defend him,
while I protest that I differ with hlra
as to God as widely as I differ with
the Christian Endeavorers in their action of to-day.
"I defend Ingersoll because he hns
cast out many devils, though not ln
tbe name of God���
for Instance. I defend hitn because he
has caBt out the devil of bigotry, that
still holdB firmly, where he can, that
says that ln ono heart, or ln one sect,
all truth ls centred. I welcome the
man who strikes a blow at such a
devil even though he strikes ln the
brutality ot fgnorance. I defend him
because he has shown that we have
not placed enough dependence In reason, because he has done something in
the cause of humanity. I won't believe a thing simply because another
man tells me It ls true. We have del-
fled theology, while Ingersoll has
denied humanity. Both are wrong.
Between the two extremes lies the
right mean. It was blind faith, such
as Ingersoll attack*, that kindled the
tires of Smlthfield and made thia earth
a hell before 'its time, that caused
thoae who called themselves Christians to butcher one another with the
most horrible cruelty, in the name ol
"Most of all, singly and alone, do I
defend Ingersoll, because It la bis right
to think and believe aB he may choose.
It was for that liberty that the Pilgrim Fathers lett England nnd took
up their abodes In tne trackless wilderness, braved storm and shipwreck,
cold and Hunger and hardships, to preserve, and tliey handed It down to Ingersoll as wen ns to the Christian Endeavorers.

An Omaha despatch snys: When the
fact that 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon had heen set as an hour.at
which the membena of the Christian
Endeavor Societies would pray for hla
conversion, Colonel Ingersoll laughed
and remarked that he was sure that
he appreciated their kind attentions.
" It reminds me of an experience I
bad with a Pennsylvania clergyman,*"
added the Colonel. " At one time 1
had a severe throat trouble, and the
statement got Into the newspapers
that I had cancer ol the throat. The
clergyman took it upon himselt to
write me a letter, la which he said
that he hnd heard of my affliction and
believed that It was a judgment from
God on account of my blasphemous
"I answered the letter nnd told

much, for If I was la his place I

A Pittsburg despatch s'ayB: The
shocking perversion ol Pittsburg's
anti-Cruelty Society into an agency
for the most Inhuman and Immoral
practices Iras clearly established by
the testimony brought out in the investigation conducted by the local
commissioner ot the State Board of
Charities and Correction, to-dny. It
was shown, that N. E. Dorrente, Secretary and practical ntunagor of tlie
society, had, with thu knowledge ot
his mistress and his own son, shamelessly maltreated ono or moro friendless girls committed to hla care tor
protection, Dorrente nnd the matron havo thus far evaded either *an
examination beforo the officials or
tho service of a subpoena.
State Charity Commissioner Francis
J.. Torrance presided over the Investigation. Dr. J. 0. Flower was the
principal examiner. The most Important Incident ol the morning developed when Commissioner Torrance
and. Dr. Flower were summoned to
another room, where they met privately Lilly Simmons, a young girl,
formerly connected with the society,
and who bos boen prominently mentioned In the scandal. The girl'told
tho officials who was responsible Ior
her sad condition and made a clean
confession, sensational ln the extreme, implicating Secretary Dor-
Ia the testimony otfered this morning, It wag stated that Fred. Dor-
rente, son of N. E. Dorrente, had
taken a parole girl Irom the Anti-
Cruelty Horae and greatly wronged
her. Other testimony ol like Import,
and much of It was brought out
against the elder Dorrente.
Tho prosecution has beea unable
as yet to locate Dorrente and Llszie
McMillan. Their absence ls considered
On the strength of Lilly Simmons'
affidavit,    District    Attorney    Hay- '
maker    thl3    afternoon procured   a
warrant for the arrest of Secretary
This affidavit is a history ot depravity. If possible, more shocking
than any indicated by the witnesses
heard. Ite revelations are said to
have seldom, been equalled in the annals of tho criminal courts of this
country. The girl docs not blame Dorrente altogether for her downfall,
but Implicates him in it.
Dorreote-s attorney, W. II. McGnry,
told Registrar Conner that he hnrl
advised his client to ski-t out. .'inn
added that Dorrente was a fool if lie'
did not.
Fred. Dorrente, tlie    ex-Secretary s
17-yuar-old son, Is nlso said to be missing.    He .was seriously implicated by ���
the testimony ol Agent V. F. Fisher.
The charges developed to-day
against Dorrente do not by any means
end with an Indiscriminate immorality. P. L. Kunz, one ol the former
agents of the society, swore that Dorrente falsified Ills accounts to the
extent of at least $520, so as to secure larger appropriations from tbe
State Bonrd of Charities, nnd then
proposed to him that thev work tbe
appropriations up to IJO.OOO yearly,
and then divide.
M. J. Dean, thc ngent of the society, testified thut he was compelled
to sever his connection with tlie society on account of Secret-try Dor-
rentes shocking immorality.
One of the witnesses, Mrs. Dnchroth.
a former matron; of the temporary .
home, nsked to be excused from tel.lns
In public what she knew of Its corruption. Commissioner Torrance arranged for her testimony to be taken
ln private some day this week.
Such was tho tenor of the whole
mass of the Information that Mr. Torrance In closing thc Investigation said
that the evidence would bo lull boforo
State Board of Charities at Its next
meeting In Philadelphia on Thursday
of next week. He said ho had no
doubt that the law would take Its
course without delay, and added that
all pertinent Information would be Immediately given to the District Attorney.

rumors long afloat, that the followers of the new sect sacrificed children, from time to time, to please

that the same vault, where these religious murders took place, was
