Editor World: The Mongolian
question has now assumed such
alarming proportions that something must lit- dime und at once, as
at the present rate of | rogress it
i will not be a question of the whites
turning tiie Mongols out of British
Columbia, hut  whether  the tables
.will not he turned and the whites
have to go instead.    Unless some
I very effective measures are taken to
prevent il, British Columbia will
soon become a Mongolian colon}'.
The Chinese and Japs are parasites
at the best, and may be likened
unto migratory hordes of barbarians
wandering hither and thither seeking something to devour. They
have no abiding cily here, bul come
for plunder,which they one and till
transport lo China and Japan. The
low state of morality whioh prevails
among them is most offensive and
Debasing to our social life, and our
younger members of society are
frequently contaminated (hereby.
Their habits generally are such as
to render them neither more nor
less than n pollution in our midst,
und the time has now come when
I the hat must go forth with no 1111-
certain sound that British Columbia
is determined, ami Btrongly determined, ihat any further importation of this obnoxious people shall
cease. The question affects British
Columbia alone of all lhe provinces
which go to form the Dominion of
Canada, and therefore the people in
'the easi have no right In injpose
sueh an incubus, upon US because
Ihey liaopcn to be in a majol-ity.
1 ilo not for one moment think ihey
wish to do so, hut lhe baneful effects
are not apparent to them because
they do nnt exist in llie east and
(hey practically have no knowledge
'of '.hein. So long as lliiti-h Columbia is quiescent, toe rest of the Dominion will nol interfere, and why
should Ihey? us it is none of their
business so long us we are content
[with the existing state of things.
There must he no half-hearted efforts in this business, or we fail.
Let every 'man, therefore, put his
shoulder to the wheel, and at once,
ills there is no lime to be lost. Let
our petition be not only a large
one, but lhe largest one that has
ever been presented to a Dominion
Parliament, and (bus let om- friends
in the east see that we arc in earnest on this question and intend lo
be heard add have our pressing necessities attended to without delay.
Australia has set us an example
wl icb we will do wen '" follow.
'I'he people in thai country have
bad the same difficulty to contend
with. They grappled wilh it: they
overcame it.    Their lax in Austra-
; lia is £100 per head, or $500 in our
money, and ibis has been found to
meet the necessities of i he case. Our
pre.-ent tax of $50 per he id is so
ridiculnu ly low as to beof no value
for the purpose for which il was designed. The people of ihi- province
must act as a unit in Ihis matter.
There must be no difference of opinion, and ail minor differences will
have to sink into obscurity. We
cannot afford to have cliques or parties, because it is a case of "united
we stand, dividid we fall." Tiie cry
from one end ot British Columbia
to the other must he ''The Mongolians shall go." The methods to be
adopted require to be constitutional
i to insure success. The main point
in the programme, therefore, will be
to demand of the Dominion Government ihat a tax be Imposed sufficiently large to render prohibitory
any further importation of theMon-
IgOliail races. This will be perfectly
in accord wilh constitutional usage
! and within our right, because \ie
huve a precedent now existent that
only requires to be extended to meet
our views in every particular. We
Bhould now therefore demand that,
to meet the requirements of the case,
nothing less than a tax of $500per
head he imposed. We should also
strongly impress upon all our members of Parliament ihat il is their
bounden duty lo bring forcibly before the Government the urgency of
the question, SO  that there he no
del ty in bringing it to an ultimate
| the very existince of the province
lis in serious jeopardy.    Persistent
agitation must be our motto.

Women and Immigration.
The Canadian Gazette welcomes
the efforts which the Women's Protective Immigration Society uf Montreal is making to improve the immigration system of Canada. At
a recent meeting the society urged
that the time has come for a national system of immigration—the
immigration of women,while under)
the control of women's committees,
forming part of this national system. This system should, they de-1
clared, include agencies abroad and
in Great Britain sanctioned by the
home governments and receiving
and distributing centres throughout
thc Dominion; and iney urged most:
strongly on the government the desirability of concentrating as far as;
possible the settlements of the North-1
west in order to obviate lhe loneliness so often met with now and se-'
cure for nil settlers (I) the benefit
of companionship, (2) facilities for •
(he proper education of the children
who are to he the future citizens of
the Dominion, (3)cottagehospitals|
and the services of doctors aud
nurses, and (4) the means of mental
and moral improvement by the circulation of good literature, etc.
Harriet   I'eecher  Slowe died on
Wednesday last.    Mrs. Stowe will!
he chiefly remembered as the author i
of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," which did \
more good and had a greater influence  in   its  day than the work of;
any other modern writer.   It  was;
read with avidity by English-speaking   people,   and created   a  public
opinion in the United States against
slavery which helped the cause of
emancipation materially.   She also j
wrote "Dread,"  another  work on I
shivery, which from a literary point
of  view   was   superior   to  "Uncle
Tom's Cabin," bnt it  was not so
popular as her  first work audits
influence incomparably less.   -Mrs.
Stowe will always he remembered
among the benefactors of mankind.
Unlike many other workers in the |
cause of humanity, she had the satisfaction loug before she was taten
away to  see   the  good  fruit whicli
her labor bad produced.
The Cowichan Creamery Association1 is now in full swing, and thai i
there will be a ready market for till
the butter  il   can turn out, and at
remunerative prices, too, there is no
doubt, if a sample supplied us is
anything like an average. Too long
have we depended  upon California
aud   the Northwest Territories fori
our butter supply, and been obliged {
to accept occasionally,at all events,
a very inferior   article.     Now that
creameries arc being started in Brit-
ish Columbia, and thai  il has been i
proved they can turn out first-class
butter, tin impetus will he given to

There was no change in the condition of affairs at the Pittston urine
yesterday. Nol more than eight
feel of rock and debris had been removed since the previous night, and
the use of dynamite was abandoned,
as it was feared it might do great
damage to the interior of the mine.
From the present outlook it will be
three weeks before the entombed
miners are reached.
It transpires thnt, us a result of
the deliberations of Mr. Laurier and
his friends, the decision has hern
reached to appoint a royal commission to inquire into the working of
thc present tariff, to report at the
session of Parliament next year.
This is conceded to be a wise step,

cut can he made without jeopardizing Canadian industries.

A War of the Classes Against

The Financial Problem One That
Affects Every Man, Woman
and Child  in   the
The main issue of the Presidential campaign in tbe United States
will be the financial problem, or
rather a fight of the power of gold
against every otlier interest. The
tariff is no longer an issue. An impost that will pay the enormous
cost of running the government, of
building and maintaining a great
navy, and the interest and principal of a large public debt, will afford
all the protection any reasonable
protectionist could ask, and to this
the Democratic party is pledged,
so that the tariff will not be a vital
question of the campaign. But the
financial problem is one that affects
every man, woman and child in the
United States. It is a question as to
whether the toiler shall work harder,
produce more and have less, while
the favored sons and daughters of
wealth indulge in greater extravagance and folly; or whether the
producers of all wealth shall have
a larger interest in the wealth they
produce and less of destitution and
want. It is to the banker's and
bondholder's interest to have the
money of redemption scarce and of
high value tis compared with other
kinds of property; hence they favor
the single gold standard for money,
and so long as it makes them
richer, they care not that it makes
everyone else poorer. They are
looking out for themselves, and if
tiie people do not unite and resist
them, they will soon find themselvs
bound hand and foot.
Hanna, the man who nominated
McKinley and dictated the terms of
the St. Louis platform, is the same
Hanna who has for years waged a
relentless war on labor, organized
and unorganized, in the state of
Ohio, lie has reduced the pay of
the lake sailors fully 50 per cent,
and the home of every workingtnan
within a radius of many miles
around Cleveland can trace the loss
of some comfort or tbe beginning of
some new privation to his insatiate
greed and heartless tyranny. Well
bus it been said of him: "He is the
perfection of his type, representing
the millionaires, the banks, the corporal ions, the trusts and every otlier
remorseless and plutocratic element
of the country." And yet Republican speakers are prating about that
party's consideration for the interests of tiie American workingtnan.
Fatal Accident on tlic 0. P. E.
An accident occurred half a mile
east of No. -1 tunnel on the C. P. R.
last night, owing to the water filtering through tiie damp and loosening Ihe truck. The train loaded with
lhe Empress's freight was derailed;
the engine and eight earsof tea and
one of coal left the track and were
thrown into the water. Edward
Dearin, brakeman, was killed, and
driver Curry and fireman Coughlin
injured, ll is thought that half tho
freight can he saved. No trouble
now exists on the line and traffic
will be resumed without interruption.
The Coal Mines Regulation Act.
Tin- hearing of the ease to determine lhe constitutionality of the
Coal Mines Regulation Act in reference to the exclusion of Chinese
working underground is set for
Monday next. The case will be
presented before the full court, and
I hen laid over for a few days to
admit of notifying the different coal
companies, the miners' union and
other interested parties, so as to give
them a chance to be represented.
This is a case of vital interest to
the miners of Nanaimo, who no

Ten young Indies belonging lo the
best families of Ihe town of linden,
Beaver County,  about  twenty miles
from Pittsburg, have organized n boy-
coll against the young men of Ihe
place. The girls have organized what
they call lhe "Trilby Club," have vowed ■ "never to marry men, and won't
even go with Ihe horrid things."
The cause of this strange action on
the part or lhe ten girls Is a grievance
they have nursed. It seems that the
buys of lhe town expected the girls
to make some use of their leap year
privileges. The girls, on the contrary, wauled the boys to be as attentive as ever. The upshot was tluit
Indignation meetings were held, and
ten of (he most determined young ladles formed lhe "Trilby Club," and
took a solemn oath never to wed.
While the weaker of the girls go on
as usual, the ten members of the club
hnve remained out of young men's society. Instead, they hold meetings at
their own homes. The club is about
to purchase bloomers and wheels, and
enjoy life without masculine aid.

I remember our running through the
wood, und bow our cannon bulls whistled as they tore dowu the brunches ef
the hawthorn bushes us we broke through
them. Beyond Hie border of the forest
we could see something red Hashing
here and there. Snltirolt. a youug soldier from the First battalion, suddenly
fell to the ground, and silently looked
at me with big, frightened eyes. From
his mouth poured a wave of blood. Ves,
1 remember it very well.
I also remember the Turk I noticed
when we reached the clearing. He was
tall und stent, nnd I wus short und
thin. I inn straight toward him. Something snapped. .Something huge, us it
seemed to me, tlew past mo. I heard it
whistle. "He has shot at me," 1
thought. But. ho, with a wail of pain,
leaned against the hawthorn bush. With
a blow 1 knocked the musket ont of his
hands. Wilh another I thrust his buyouet
far away. I heard him menu, uud theu
I rushed on.
Our men cried, "Hurrah!" Somefoll.
Some gave tire. Wheu I had left the
wood, I also lired several limes right
ou the plain. Suddenly the "Hurrah !"
grew louder, and we all rushed on—
that is, not we, but our men, for I remained. This seemed strange to me,
nud, yet more strange, that everything
bad disappeared and the uoise had stopped. 1 beard nothing, but I saw a bit of
blue color before mo, vory likely tho
sky. After awhile this also had vanished.
I was never iu sueh u funny state before. I am lying, it seems, ou my stom-

Unlike many hard driven business
men, the owner of "Alpine Heights,"
that splendid suburb of Chicago, has

"W.W.WATSON, 225 Dearborn st."
Busy men and women are apt to
think there is always time to get well.
The fact that ouly oue person in a hundred dies of old age shows how recklessly men and womeu postpone attending to their health and allow it to
go to pieces while they devote themselves heart aud soul to affairs that are
trirliug in comparison. Wives aud
mothers have no greater dutv than to
see that those dear to them do not become so absorbed in the work of providing for the household as to lose their
health and shorten their days.
No more thoughtful step eouln be
taken during the spting days that are
now here thnn to urge such tired and
often irritable home providers to take
Paine's celery compound. There are
thousands of homes where overwork has
led to worrying, fretting and despondency, that need ouly Paine's celery

The City's Danger.
Now the political campaign is
over and has resulted satisfactorily j
to the country at large, it would be
in order for those interested in the
welfare of this city to consider itsi
more immediate requirements with
a view to bringing about the required legislation. First and fore-:
most is the matter of water supply.
With the hot and dry season upon
us, the city is practically at the
mercy of the fire liend, for it is patent to all that thc water service is
alarmingly inadequate to the requirements of the city, rendering it
an easy prey to the devouring element. The most important safeguard of any ci
protection, and
entirely of wood.
Nanaimo,grenter precautions should
he taken and greater vigilance exercised, instead of a comparative
apathy that portends disastersooner
or later. It is a matter that should
rise above personal considerations
and individual or corporate interests, and all who have the true interests of the city at heart will not
seek to extenuate the present state
of affaire or oppose efforts toward

not forget that assistance of a practical nature is now sorely needed
by them, the extension of which
would go far toward cementing the
bond of brotherhood and demonstrate in a substantial manner their i-
sympathetic interest, which doubtless would lie reciprocated in lime
of need. There is also another
phase of the question, a selfish one
we admit, but one which should
not be overlooked. That is, that
in aiding the Australians to continue their strike to a successful
issue, they would not only indirectly
help the cause of labor in this country, but would directly benefit themselves by causing an increased output of coal from this province; and
in view of this fact we are assured
the business community would supplement in a substantial manner

The blue-ruin alarmists are still
descanting on the deformities of

business of the country, ignoring
the avowed policy of the Liberal
party to give credence to the false
alarm by which the howling dervishes of the Conservative party
sought to deceive and frighten the
people. An equitable adjustment of

Eugene V. Debs spoke to a large
gathering of railroad men and otli-.
ers in New York recently. He said
that what thc country needed was
not strikes, but a different industrial
system. The present wage system,
which is a slave system, will, he
predicted, give place to co-operation, enabling every workingman
to reap the full reward of his toil.
Speaking of government ownership
of railroads, Mr. Debs said the
government is being made a repair
shop for wrecked railways, and he
declared that if the government
could operate railroads after they
they were wrecked, it could do it
before they were wrecked.
The Conservative press is now engaged in a frantic attempt to convert ignominious defeat into a semblance of success, the local apologist going so far as to predict the
Liberal majority will "melt away
like snow in July." This is only
another instance of drowning men
grabbing at straws, and the result
will mpre likely show tbe Conservatives to have as much show of realizing their predictions as a snowball in hades has of contending
against the melting process.

The men were nt work propping up
the roof when the fall occurred. The
alarm was immediately given by tin-
ringing of the fire bells and rescuers
were put to work without delay. At '1
o'clock on Suudny afternoon the lirst
lioili-s were found in the slope sonic distance frcii the plnne in which the men

slight  fall occurred and the men who I
wore nt work had to retreat  before 't. '
A consultation ef mine uliy'ers was then '
held an,!  il   wns decided    that    heroic
measures would have to be resorted to.
to prevent heavy  damage to Hie mine, j
Inside Superintendent  f.nuigRn cave orders that the most  experienced  miners '
should   be   secured   and   thai   Hie   pnrty
would  go  down  Hie  mine ul  7 o'clock. l
Expert liinbenuen put in an appearance
at thai hour and were soon lowered in-
to the wi'.rkins.   They  made  their wry

(dope.   Thc werk of propelling proceed* j
ed  rapidly  until  11 o'clock,  when    an-
otlier frill occurred.  A  low    rumbling:

Thev Inl- -red until tt-80 o'clock, when j
it is presumed the roof fell in without
warning, unking a trmneiid ma crash. H
is believed, however, that men were not
net nil together, but some near Hie slope
end these pr-li.tiily ynu up the incline
when the fall occurred. If the men re-
epived any warning, Ihey had time To
run up the slope, but not to nny great
distance. Tbe failing rock and coal
rilled up the s'ope and the adjoining
gangways, completely shutting oft" no
avenues cf escape, it was nt tirst supposed the men esenped being caught
nnd that they were Imprisoned behind
the debris. It is still possible, however,
that living men may still be behind tho
fall, although it is extremely improbable. Even if they escaped being
crushed by the falling rocks. Hie prob
ability of their being alive for nny
length of lime is n gaseous mine i»
The alarm was lirst given by John
Sheridan, who with Thomas Gill and
(mother man were thc only ones lo es-
cn|*e out of the whole party who entered Ihe mine Inst night. Sheridan was
on his way up Hie slope to get somo
fresh wnt"r for the men nml, when
ntinit 100 feet from thc foot of the
slinft, wns knocked down by the concussion, lie wns badly cut ami bruised by
the flying coal nml rock. He lay un-
ennsclous ten minutes and then enmc vp
the shaft. Thc enneussinn wns so grer.I
thjnt It was heard for miles around. The
foundation of Dearly every building in
Pitlston was shaken and windows nun
doors rattled ns lu a tornado, in the
lffVsqi near to the mine, persons were
thtowtf from their beds.
The first thought was thnt a great
earthquake . had occurred and the inhabitants rushed pell rncll from their
houses. The ringing of bells and the
shriek of the big mine whistle told thc
story. Grent crowds appeared at the
month of the shaft. Stalwart men
stood appalled and frantic women, who
had husbands or sons In the doomed
mine, waited in despair. One mother
cried out that she had two sons below.
Another wns the wife or the widow of
some unfortunate one, nnd had nine.
helpless children nt home. Many knelt
on the groun 1 and in voices broken in
sobs, implored the divine Providence tn"
rcstore'their loved one alive. When It
wan given out that there wns little hope
of rescuing the men alive, women and
girls fainted and were biirnc nwny.
Thc rescue work was promptly  be
gun. The best miners who remained
on the surface joined voluntarily in the
hazardous task, for hazardous it certainly was. lt was the constant menace ot
another fall or nu explosion of limhunp.
Special efforts were made to Keep tlic
air fan in good order, so that if by
chance the men were alive, they should
have fresh air to breathe. Tbe locked
slope und gangways held out little hope
of the air reaching them. 'I'he rescuers
were divided into three relays of forty
men eich under the direction of Mine
Foreman Alexander McMullen.
The men worked ns they bad never
before worked clearing away the debris
in the slope with the energy that out*
springs out of the knowledge of dear
lives behind it. They made good headway, considering the difficulties they
had to conled with, and at H o'clock tins
morning had cleared the slope a (lis
tancc of WO feet.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon it beennic
necessary lo swear in extra policemen
to control the crowd around tlic mouth
of the shaft. It lind increased to fully
7.0110. Hopes were stretcbed nrounrl
tlic shaft nml only mine officials were
allowed to enter thc enclosure.
Sheridan, the water bny, wtio hnd
such a narrow cscnpe, tells a thrilling
story of the catastrophe, lie thinks
there wns nn explosion of gas which
blew down the newly erected timbers
and caused the enve-in. He said Ihosc
inside had no apprehension of n fall or
n squeeze, Everything wis working
nicely nnd lhe men expected to be out
of thc mine within nn hour.
"'i'he noise of the fall." snys the boy,
"waa like a hundred cannon and the
force of it blew* ine fully twenty-Hyp
feet. 1 was burled against tlic side ol
Hie slope. A piece of reck hit me on the
hurl; of the head, and Hie wound com
tnenced to blood and then 1  fainted.''
Richards and Gill, who were on then
way out after timber, concur with -Sheridan that the concussion was terrific.
Tl.ey wire knocked eft tlicir feet and
banged against sonic brattice worn.
They cannot conceive the possibility oi
anybody hi ing in the wreck and escape
wilh his life. Superintendent Law snys:
"Nobody regrets this dreadful occurrence more than I do. It is too cany
yet to give any reason as lo lhe cause
of the accident, but 1 can nssure you
that if I thought there wns nn danger
in the work undertaken by lhe men,
not n single one of the men would have
bei n allowed to enter the mine. 1 don't
cure for the damage to tlte mine. It is
the loss of life that gives me so much
The report that two bodies had been
found in the mine wns proved to-nigbl
to be premature. Up to 1) o'clock tonight no bodies hnd been found. Al
that hour nil hope of finding any person
nlive had been lost. The superintendent
of the Lehigh Coal Company, who is an
authority, snys it will be ten days he-
fore the bodies nre reached. During
the Into hoi:rs of tlic afternoon the
searchers made but littlo progress, be
cause the part of the slope upon which
their energies were bent was "working.''
The hcAvicsi timbers were like straws

All-Night Debate on the Agricultural Land Rating Bill.
London, June 30.—Tbe house of eom-

government kept their forces well iu
hand, ensuring u majority of over lod.
After midnight the excitement increased and the different clauses were
carried under the closure rule.
The Liberal leader. Sir William Ver-
uon Hnrcourt, denounced the method
which tiie Conservative leader, Mr.
Bat four, was adopting iu order to extricate the government from a mess iuto which it had fallen from making too
many election promises and overweighting itself with important bills, wh.ch,
like thc educational bill, recently shelved for repairs, they had been unable to

Sir Michael Hicks Beach, chancellor
of the exchequer, angrily retorted that
the opposition was most fncliotis nud
asserted that its tactics were rapidly re-

son of the Marquis of Salisbury, of a
deliberately orgnuized interference with
the debate. Tin- Speaker, the Hon.
Wm. Court Gully, when appealed (o
declined to interfere beyond exhorting
the members to be more orderly during the debate.
A little Inter Mr. Dnlzlel characterized Sir Michael Hick Beach's spe, eh
an being "Impertinent," whereupon there
were cries of "withdraw!" The speaker
then suggested that Mr. Dalziel had no
intention of bring offensive in his remarks, and, after some more skirmishing with another clause, the b.ll wns
This brought forth another storm of
derisive shouts from the opposition. Dr.
0. K. D. Tanner, Irish Nationalist, wns
heard to shout "gag!" nnd for this the
doctor wns warned by the chair. After
the morning on mo on the members begun to get hungry and thirsty nnd
things generally became quieter. When
the nun rose the government leader was
still at his post, apparently as fresh as
when he entered the house on the previous evening nnd evidently ready to
fight all day of necesanry.
The Liberal lender was nlso standing
by his guns, but showed the effects of
tho wear and tear of the night. Mr.
Joseph Chamberlain, who is generally
in the thick of such a fight aa this, was
absent, He wns present, it is true, on
one division, but, apparently not earing
lo face the storm which he saw approaching, disappeared from the house
and enjoyed a good night's rest, while
his fellow cabinet ministers fought

Apparent Verification of n Virtue Clalme«l
Fur the Aiii-in-ii Unlucky Gem.
A wealthy broker ot West Philadelphia had a rather singular experience
the otlier day. He und bis family have
had in their possession for a number of
yoars sonic vory handsome opals, but
the supers:iiioii whicli wns formerly entertained concerning tht- stone being unlucky prevented him making use of t he
gams. Lust year lie took u trip to Kurope,. While in Loudon he met nt tbo
house of a mutual friend a dealer in
precious stones, who bud jnst como from
Grucias a Dins, in Honduras, and bud
brought back sonm lino gems.
Instead of putting any faith tn the
popular superstition this gentleman tie-
lieved in the opal very thoroughly and
attributed to it virtues whicli no other
gum possessed. Among the things which
ho snid about it was that the opal wus
attached to its owner by invisible cords
and that it was impossible to lose it,
though it might bu mislaid. The Philadelphia broker on his return to Philadelphia chose the finest opal in his collection, had it set in a ring, surrounded
by small diamonds, and at Christmas
presented it to bis wife. It was truly a
beauty, and sho wore it with conscious
One day ou returning from a day's
outing she received quite u shock—tho
opal wns gone. Search proved vain. .No
trace of the stone con id she discover.
Not only ou account of ils value, but
because she knew how highly her husband prized lho stone, she hated to inform him of her loss. At last she felt
obliged to do so, when, greatly to her
astonishment, he drew from his vest
pocket a tiny package and presented it
to her. Upon opening it what was her
delight wheu she recognized her lost
More astonishing still, her husband
affirmed that whilo bo was walking
down Chestnut street u day or two before he felt something under the solo of
his shoe, which upon investigation
proved to ba the opal which bo hud last
seen shimuieriug upon his wife's linger.
There was no doubt about it being the
lost oue, for tho jeweler who had set
it recognized it also.—Philadelphia
How   a   Dislocated    Jaw   Waa   1-ul   Back
Into Its Place.
While talking in bis sleep Henry
Flocke, a builder, residing in Ozone
Park, L. I., dislocated his jaw. Mr.
Plocko's habit of talking iu his sleep
has mado him the butt of a good deal of
joking. Ho weut to bed as usual, but lie
had uot slept long when lie began talking. This awoke his wife, who listened for about ten minutes. Suddenly
ITlocke's nocturnal monologue stopped.
He begun gasping. Mrs. Flocke was
frightened, and she shook her husband
into wakefulness.
"Why, what's the matter, Henry?"
she asked.
Her husband tried to speak, but iu
vain. His jaw wus immovable, Ho mo
tioned to bis wife tlmt he could not
speak, and she endeavored to force his
mouth shut. She could not move it.
Fearing her husband wus sutl'eriug from
lockjaw, she sent- for Dr. McDonald.
"Do you want me to replace your
jaw iu my own way?" asked tho doctor.
• \ .Mr. Flocke motioned in the affirmative. Dr. McDonald stepped in front of
Flocke. Without warning tho doctor
struck Flocke a terrific blow on the left
side of the jaw, Flocke showed a disposition to strike buck.
"You told ine to do it my own way,"
said the physician. "Yon observe tln.it
your ability to speak is restored. "
The blow hud knocked Flocke's dislocated jawbone into its proper position,
and except for a little soreness he was
none thc worse. Dr. McDonald explained
thut Flocko's jaw was liable to dislocation at any time unless he broke himself of the habit of talking in his Bleep.

Ther Most   Have   Nerves of   Steel   to   Be
Siu-.-esHful Operators.
Because a man is a pickpocket it does
not necessarily follow that he is not
well educated nor a close observer of his
fellow mortals. The latter trait might
bo said to ba an absolute requirement to
a successful purloiuer of pocketbooks.
One of the gentry who possessed both
characteristics expressed himself the other day to au Enquirer reporter ut police
"There is no class of artists who in
their culling are as dexterons us pickpockets. This is duo to a double incentive. Not ouly do wo find u bait for
effort and exertion in success, but have
tho udded spur of a fear of failure,
Success means as much to a pickpocket
', us to auy man, aud failure means a
great donl more.
"A vocation  in whioh  the  slightest
slip means a loss of liberty and perhaps
- of lifo will ever be apt to huve a degree
: of exportuess iu its followers not present,
iu moro  reputable and safer avenues of
j trade.
"Pickpockets, like poets nud other
; people, sire born, not made. Their nerves
; must bo iron and yet as sensitive ns instinct. Their hands must be as complete in make up and accomplishment
as Herrmann's, the magician, and strong
as steel, whilo light as down. Out of the
vast army of humanity who are soldiers
of the shadows only one-fourth of 1 per
cent can or do become pickpockets.
"Those form the nobility of thieves
aud are reverenced by the hnrglur as of
a higher class thau they. The practice
of a pickpocket while not really at. work
is as constant as that of some fumed
professor of the violin or harp. Ho
keeps pace with the profession. No
sooner does some jeweler invent a new
fastening for diamond pins or studs
than those meu of finest touch devise
the motion which evades its purpose.
"The chief object of a piepkoeket,
after certainty, is speed. Ho cannot
dally with his victim by the hour.
What he does is to be over in a flash.
Speaking of pins aud studs, there has
never beeu a fastening so complex but
the expert thieves could detent it in u
motion. They do in their business as
line work as any Hindoo, and the thief
himself conld uot analyze or explain its
detail. His powers of execution have
gouo far beyond his powers of reception
or relation.
"A pickpocket consults his own nervous condition constantly. No fine lady
evor has such a time with her nerves as
this aristocrat uf the outlaws. If he
does uot feel right, ho won't 'work.' "

"Any emphasis given to academic

I exclaimed.
General Weyler laughed. "There
would be no danger from tho rebels,"
he said, "lintfrom the Spanish soldiers.
They are of a very affectionate disposition und would all fall iu love witli
"twill keep a groat distance from the
lighting if yon will allow me to go."
The general's lips closed tightly, and
he said:
"Impossible! Impossible!"
"Wliu; would happen," I asked, "if
I should be discovered crossing tbo lines
without permission?"
"Y'ou would be treated just (he sauie

"Would I be sent to Castle Morro?"
"Yes."   Ho nodded his head vigorously.
That settled it.  I decided uot to go.
"Why," I then  asked, "is the rule
| 'iiicoiiiniunicndo' placed upon prisoners?
Is it not cruel to prevent a man from
seeing his wife and children?"
"Tho rule 'incommunicado,'" snid
the general, "is a military law. Prisoners arc. allowed to see their relatives as
u favor, but, wo exercise discretion iu
these cases."
"Thero are stories that prisoners aro
shot in Morro castle at daybreak each
moruiug, and that tho shots cau ho
plainly heard across tho bay. Is this
The general's eyes looked unpleasant
"It is false," bo said shortly. "Tho
prisoners go through a regular court
martial, and no one could be shot, ut
Mono without, my orders, uud I have
not given orders to shoot any one since
I hnve been here."
"Do you not think it vory cruel that
innocent women and children should bo
made to suffer in timo of war?"
"No innocent women and children do
suffer. It is only thoso who leavo their
homes und tako part in battles who uninjured. It is only the rebels who destroy peaceful homes."
"It is reported," I said, -'that, 11(1
women aro lighting under Geueral Ma-
ceo.   Is this true?"
"Yes,"replied the general. "We took
one woman yesterday. She was dressed
in man's clothes and wus wielding a
machete. She is now in Morro castle.
These women are fl.urc.or than tho men.
Many of ther aro niuliittoos. This particular woman was while."
"What will bo her fate?"
"She will go through the regular
form of trial."
"Wili no mercy he shown her?" I ask-
"Mercy is always shown to awoinan,
While the law is tho sumo for both sexes,
thorn is a clause which admits of mercy
to a woman."
"Thore uro several Cuban women insurgents in Morro and tho Cabanas.

no foreigner sliull enter our fortresses.
It is a military law. Wo can make no

"Some of those women," I continued,
"uvo suid to be imprisoned for merely

this passible?"
"Treason,"explained tho gonernl, "is
always a crime punishable by imprisonment."

"You arc an unmitigated nnisonoe,

got up, looked lingeringly at Dare and
made his adieu with what grace ho
Dare rose, too, and went up to her
aunt. The girl's eheoks woro damask
roses, her eyes starry in thoir dark dilation. Sho seomod to herself all ono
throbbing pulse of now sensation, not
wholly pleasurable, but- wildly strange.
Royal Cleve was unlike aught sho had
ever seen or dreamed of. Her favorito
heroes even wero quite put out of court.
His voico was music itself. Ho had a
Bniilo that glorified liis face. Yet somehow the girl shrank a littlo from tho
memory of him, shivered at the thought
of those too persistent oyes.
Ho had hung at her sido the evening
through, witli eyes, cars, for naught
else. Sho wondered vaguely if it woro
uot because she was a now species, some-
tiling wholly different from any ho had
hitherto known. In all tho story books
she know grand gontlomon had a habit
of amusing themselves with the country
girls they chanced to moot and thou
riding away, leaving their victims to
doath or dosolateuess. Mr. Clcvo should
not do that; she was too wise in the ways
of his kind. Besides she went no further
even in her thought, though tho quick
rod flushing over neck and brow proclaimed somo mighty postulato unspoken.
Mrs. Townlcy saw the blush and misread it to suit her own desires. As she
kissed her niece good night sho said,
lightly touching the snioeth chock:
"I think this faco might charm even
cruel fate. Do bo careful of it, child. Ill
fortune has lain in wait for us so long
that it really behooves you to try to
chango the family luck."
Daro lifted her eyes and asked:
"Aunt Mel, am I really extraordinarily pretty?"
"Judge for yourself, my child," Mrs.
Townlcy said, turning her to face the
loug pier glass, that surely had never
reflected loveliness moro winsome. For
u niiunto both looked in silence at the
fair imago. Then Daro gavo a low cry,
tho older woman scroamed aloud, for
there, faintly, from tho half lit depths
behind hor, a man's faco showed, white
and sot, in tho mirror over her shoulder.
Next minute it had vanished. Daro
rubbed her eyes. Mrs. Townley said
Bharp tremor in her tone:
"Did you see anybody? Whose face
was it?"
Dare did not answer at once. When
(ho did speak, it was to say:
"I thought I saw something, but no
doubt we were both mistaken. We
must have been. There is no one hero
but ourselves."
"Not a soul," said Mrs. Townley,
shivering violently. "It must have been
the flickering of tho light."
Daro said nothing. Instead sho walked away with tingling pulses. She had
no fear of, no belief in, ghosts or visions.
Hor eye was too true and keen for optio-
al illusions. She had seen a face, a face
she know well. It was Allen Fauntleroy who had looked at her from that
claro obscure.
A little later Hawkins reined up from
their hand gallop to say to Royal Cleve:
"No need to ask if overy prospect
pleases. 'Pon my life, man, you came
near to making aspoctaclo of yourself."
Clove shook the other's hand impatiently from his sleeve, saying rather
"Stop tha*', Hawkins. I am immensely obliged to you for tho initial suggestion, but please remember that while I
am always ready aud willing to hear
yon on business I prefer to escape discussion of my personal affairs."
Hawkins gavo on angry whistle and
laid roughly:
"Seo here, Mr. Royal Clevo, it's quite
too Into for you to tako that tono with

signed a fow papers, papers that would
be awkward reading for a young lady I
could name. You went into this ou business. Now you want to shift to sentiment. Very good, but you'd bettor keep

lean put a lion iu your path—another
lover—beside whom you would huvo as

marry her, but I won't got iu tho dust
and take kicks aud cuffs at your pleasure to bring it about. Tho sooner you
understand hat failure or success for
yon rests wholly iu my hands the hotter

Royal Clevo sworo a groat oath under
his breath. Aloud ho said, half mockingly:
"Is it so, my good Hawkins? Now
listen to me. I hopo you arc my faithful
ally. Certainly I will do all Unit 1 c:::i

Drawing her curtain, sho looked outside. Tho "gait" was almost half a mile
awuy. You camo through it from the
highway that ran past Exeter. Tho distance was as nothing to her quick feet.
Even had sho -not, been absolutely fearless, all abroad was now such silver
shining as mimicked day. But ought she
to heed a message so vague? Hor aunt,
sho know, would disapprove. Did not
honor forbid her to do under her roof
the thing which would bo against her
But tho cjise must bo urgent, the need
strong, to bring her thus a secret message. What had Jubilee to tell that the
whole world might not hear? The hoy
was sharp, shrewd beyond bis years, and
Allen's sworn advocate nnd worshiper.
In leaving ltidgeley hor last word had
been for him, bidding him bring her instant news if anything befell the household Most likely that was what liad
brought liim to this midnight conference. Still that face in lho glass. Spite
of her bravery, her linn nerves, sho shivered, recalling eerie tales of apparitions
forewarning death or peril.
She must go, Below stairs she heard
the clang of closing doors. Running hastily down, sho said to the servant:
"I'll fasten the west door. I want to

"I am like hor portrait moro than
anyone else," Dare said, impatient to
be off, but not daring to show it. After
a little sho said, as though the thought
had just como to her: "Shut the door,
Patsey; then nothing can get in, no matter how moonstruck I may happen to be.
With tho key I can come in whenever
I please."
"Young ladies nios' gincr'lly want ter
watch do moon when good lookin lieaux
des gono erway,'' Patsey chuckled, obediently closing the door. Daro dropped
dowu upon the stops nnd for 10 minutes
watched the faint ghostly mists writho
up from the babbling runnel and hover
and waver in tho full leafed trco tops.
As she stepped lightly to tho grass a
low growl foil on her ear. She saw in
tho moonlight, a big, shaggy white cm-
standing full in her path, gently waving
his tail and looking at her with tho air
of a stern but loving guardian. With
eyes full on his she went straight up to
him and laid a hand on his head, saying
very low: "Nicofcllowl Big dog! Come
and walk with me!"
Half reluctantly ho yielded to hor impulse, stood aside and at last walked
soberly behind. Keeping well in shadow,
darting from tree to trco, from covert to
covert, Daro gained the carriage way
and ran so swiftly along it that, almost
before she thought of it, the gato barred
her way.
Not for long. As she stopped breathless and panting it swung opou, aud Jubilee's voico said:
"Oh, Miss Daro, if you please, progress outside. Those dog is too cxpicious
here iu the plain moonshine."
In silence Daro followed him to the
shade of a big oak that stood a tittle to
one sido of the highway. As soon as
they were well within it she said very
"What brought you here, Jubilee?
Aro you by yourself? Tell me quick. Is

"My two feet brought me hero," Jubilee said, with a grin. ' 'That is to say,

Melon Culture.
Pumpkins and cucumbers will grow
everywhere, but there seems to bo n
prejudice or conviction among many
that melons arc difficult to grow. On
tlic contrary, they can be grown ns
easily an any of the vine vegetables,
insects are their worst enemies, but arc
not troublesome after the vines have
started to run.   Air-slacked lime dusted
profit as potatoes did last year. The
fact is that It wns not so much tbe
acreage devoted to potatoes last year
that caused the large crop as it was to
the favorable conditions for their
growth, it being what Is termed a
"good potato year."
Kins nf Insecticides.
Tito ono supreme Insecticide Is kerosene; and kerosene emulsion should be
always kept on hand for Immediate use
whon needed. It Is invaluable to be
sponged into the bark of all trees twice
or three times a year. 1 use It on maples, elms, aud all lawn us well as orchard trees. It is made by dissolving
half a pound of any hard soap lu a gallon of boiling water. Then add two
gallons of kerosene aud churn uli together witli n common force pump until
the substance is homogeneous; that is,
churn for ten minutes. Use n pint ln
n iiiill of wilier on strong trees, a weaker solution on tender plants. This is
tlic remedy also for cabbage worms. I
add hellebore and use the combined
mixtures on currant worms and all soft-
bodied pests.

ou thickly when the plants are wet
with dew or ruin will keep off the troublesome flea-beetles, and nothing is so
cheap or effective. Tobacco dust is
also good. Melons like a warm, moist,
sandy or gravelly loam, though niusk-
niclous will grow In a heavier soil than
watermelons, but the flavor is best
when grown on lighter land.
The main secret In melon culture <s
to start tho plants early. Miiskmelons
should lie planted 4x1! feet and watermelons 8xli) feet apart. They should
be cultivated as long as possible aud
will cover the whole ground at these
distances. The hind should be heavily
fertilized with good manure, mid a
liberal handful of fertilizer hood in
around each hill. Big melons and lots
of them do not grow where plant food
Is scarce. Of the miisknielons aud
cantaloupes, the former beiug the
round, netted ones, and the latter the
long, smooth sorts, the Emerald Gem
is one of the earliest and best. It Is
quite small, dark green, deeply ribbed,
has thick salmon flesh, small cavity,
and the very finest flavor. Tho Melrose, a new sort, is very handsome and
good. Green Montreal is large, and a
very good, late kind.— Orauge .Tudd

Smith Iluwley, of Michigan, In a lecture before tlic horticultural society of
that State, said that the picture so
often seen iu agricultural papers of a
man standing on a wagon and throwing spray Into apple trees as he waB
drawn along is a delusion. To do thorough work one must go all about a tree
and throw spray upou it from every
direction. When this work is properly
done the trees will retain their foliage
until the snow falls and will produce
much fruit on off years.

Feeding hay to hogs may seem new,
yet there are farmers who provide bulky
food to their hogs in winter, wheu
green food is scarce, by cutting clover
hay very short and steaming or scalding it. The cut hay, after it becomes
softened, is sprinkled with bran or
corn meal nnd fed warm. It Is not only
highly relished by the hogs, but pro-
moles thrift, and is as cheap as corn,

When covering small seeds be careful
not to lune too much earth over them.
Thoy c-niiot push through the ground

especially where the land banks. Such
seeds ns carrels, parsnips, turnips, kale,

sprinkling of dirt for a covering. Beets,

be planted deeper, but half an inch of
dirt is sutliciont for thorn.
Dairy Herds* Infected.
Commenting on the reported decision'
of the French Government that all live
stock imported Into that country here-'
after must be subjected to the tuber-!
culin test, the New York Times says
that this country should prepare for
similar action on the part of otlier for-j
elgn nations, to which we export cattle
to the value of about $30,000,000 per!
annum. The Illinois Board of Live
Stock Commissioners hns determined,!
"for the welfare of the general public!
and for the protection of the inmates
of the various charitable institutions
throughout the State, to subject all
dairy cattle connected with such lnsti-l
tutlons to the tuberculin test." Of the]
large herd attached to an asylum In'
Elgin nearly half of the seventy-five
cows were found to be tuberculous.
The second herd which the commissioners examined was one of 182 cows, at-,
tached to the Eastern Illinois*Hospital,
at Kankakee. Here forty-three were
found to be diseased and were killed.

Hou Cholera.
Hog cholera makes fearful ravages
wherever it appears on farms, and although hundreds of remedies have been
suggested, yet there is no sure euro
known. Experiments show, however,
that where the disease appears most
frequently is on farms where the hogs
nre Inbred and confined too closely to
a grain diet, Feeding slop of a filthy
kind Is also a cause. To avoid the disease feed the hogs on n variety of food,
making grass nn article of diet, give
clean water, aud procure new males
every year.
Farmers who arc disgusted with low
prices for potatoes will lind many
others who are also not now very partial to them, nnd there will probably
be a much smaller crop this year, simply because farmers will not venture

The Diver Wus Pinned Beneath Wrec-cag*
With Fifty Feet of Water Above—Felt
the Water Creeping Under His Armor.
Each Moment an r'ternity.
Captain Charles .Smith of Bridgeport,
Conn., who had a thrilling struggle
with death 50 foot under water the other day, told the story of his experience
today. The oaptain is u well known
diver, aud while working on the sunken
hull of the Olara Post became caught
in tho rigging and narrowly escaped
with his life.
"The wreck lay quite deep—deeper
than I usually care to go, although I
huvo been down 10 fathoms," said the
oaptain, "After tho masts wont hy tbo
board and the deck was torn off by tbo
waves tho cross timbers wore strewed
with thu wreckage, and many wero suspended over the decks and into tho hold.
I cut thom away on the starboard side
and then crossed over, doing the same.
Then In some way some of the tangled
mass slowed over and foil partially into
tho hold and I wus caught with it and
held fast. Yon cannot see very far in.
such u depth of water, and when I
fouud myself pinned iu, how I could
not tell, I jerked the life line three
times, which is tbe signal to rise. I felt
mysolf rising a few feet, and thon all
the wreckage fell iu upon mo and everything came to a standstill. I jerked
the life line repeatedly, but there was
no response. I tried to move, but found
the uir pipe wns somehow caught so
that any movement shut off the curront
of air. It wus an awful moment, uud it
seemed eternity to me.
"In the meantime those ou the wrecking ship wero wondering what had happened. It seemed to tbem as though the
signals to haul up were qnickly followed by others to lower, and then by one
to stop. The man at the lifeline became
confused ut these coutradictory orders,
aud hoping to take a sufo course ordered
the derrick to haul on tho blocks. Nothing yielded to the strain, although the
wrecking ship careonod greatly. The
men at the pumps worked for dear life,
uutil they were exhausted aud had to bo
relieved.  Still no signs of release.
"All this while I was woudoring,"
continued the captain, "why I was not
hauled np, when I came to the conclusion that my lifeline hud certainly been
fouled when the wreckage shifted and
that my signals were not properly Bent
up. It hud now become black as night
in the water, I hud cut a small hole in
the valve of my right huud rubber glove
by catching hold of some iron bolts, and
the water had come in and filled the
glove full, exerting a terribly painfpl
pressure on my hand, und was slowly V*
oozing past tho clumps at my wrist and
hud reached my elbow. It seemed to me
in that mass which was moving by the
tide that I would soon be hopelessly
crushed by the wreckage. I found myself becoming confused through the great
air pressure in my helmet, and I had
about couclnded that I should never
clear myself, when suddenly the wreok-
ago gave a lurch, and I fouud I conld
climb up to oue of the deck timbers.
Grasping my ax, I cut away at my feet,
but some irou stays were in the way.
As I hung there it seemed n lifetime,
wheu again the tide favored me, and I
begun working desperately.
"Suddenly the whole mass broke
away and begun to rise rapidly, and I
became so entangled thut I wus actually
held head dowuwurd, us I was carried
up. It seemed another eternity before I
reached tbe surface. When I came up,
the men at first did not suppose I was
there, as there was such a muss of tangled material, and their surprise yon
can imagine wheu I shot up through the
wreckuge, feet first. When I was hauled
upou deck and my helmet opened, it
seemed as though my eyes were on Ore,
so terribly did they burn from tbe lessened air pressure
"It was," concluded the captain, "tbe
closest call to death's door that I ever
had, uud I huvo peeped through its keyhole pretty often, I ussure you."
