. . as governmenl i fficials here are
advised, no trouble oi a serious kind
anticipated, but in accordance with
instructions from President Roose-
velt, hurried preparations are being
made for the sending of an expeditionary force of fhe army to Cuba.
The first American troops will be
landed at Havana next Saturday.
Meantime the marines and bluejackets from the American fleet in Cuban wai ers will protect American interests and support Secretary Taft,
tbe provisional governor of Cuba, in
ihe ; reservation of order and the pro-
lection of life and property.   In off5-
:.i circles here American intervention was regarded as inevitable. How
long it may continue it is impossible
��� foretell. The nature of the intervention ami the j ���eparations for it indicate a supervision of Cuban affairs
on ihe part of the American government for an indefinite period. Arrangements have been concluded  not
ti'. for the first expeditionarj force
ti Cuba of aboul 5,600 men, but for a
second  force of  equal  numbers     No
orders   for  the   mobilization   of ihe

Operations in all departments oi
the military establishment of the governmenl are on a war basis today.
The secretaries and chiefs of all the
bureaus were at their desks and
every office was humming with activity. Scores of clerks who have not
worked on Sunday since the Spanish-
American war were on duly in the
war and navy departments and at the
headquarters of the marine corps.
General Ainsworth, military secretary, and General Bell, chief of staff
of the army, worked throughout the
day concluding arrangements for the
departure of the first expeditionary
force. Orders for the movement of
troops were sent out last night, but
tc-day scores of orders were sent to
officers who are on leave to join their
regiments. Gen. Humphrey, quartermaster-general, practically closed arrangements to-day for the transports
which are to convey the expedition
to Cuba. The ships will be ready for
departure before the troops have been
mobilized at Newport News.
Rebels Quietly  Submit.
Havana, Sept. 30,���The work of dispersing peaceful; the revolutionary
forces in arms against the Cuban gov-
' rnment is already under way. Brigadier-General Funston, chairman of the
disarmament committee, had two
amicable conferences to-day with General Guerra. and arranged a programme entirely  satisfactory.

Paris, Sept 30.���Sixteen balloons,
. reraging over 2,000 i ibic metres capacity each, and representing seven
countries, sailed from the Tulllerles
.a [i ns ' his afternoon in the fii st
competition for ihe .lame- Gordon
Bennett cup for International aero-
nauts. The contest was primarily a
long distance race. The date had
been carefully selected when the prevailing winds are from the west, in
the hope of giving the aeronauts an
o portunitj to break the n coi tl ��� '
Counl De La Veulx, made in 1900,
when his balloon landed in Korosti-
cheff, Russia, having covered a distance of 1,186 miles in 35 hours and
to minutes. But unfortunately to-day
the wind was light, hardly more than
eight miles an hour, and almost due
east, thus making the shores of the
Atlantic the limit of distance and robbing the occasion of its importance as
a test of long distance aerial travelling. It was a great disappointment
to the aeronauts, who had come from
every corner of Europe. The rules
of the contest, however, provided that
In case of unfavorable atmospheric
conditions the judges could at their
option make the test one of endurance of remaining in the air. Nevertheless, ii was a spectacle, ami ihe
event was a brilliant success.
Ii is calculated that over a million
persons saw the balloons as they as-
cended. Massed military bands <.:i-
livened the enormous crowds witn
music while they waited. The start
was preceded i.y the light ot tarn-
dreds of trial balloons and the loosing
of 5,000 homing pigeons. Santos Dumont, one of the two representatives
of the Aero club of America, proved
to be f.ie only one to inaugurate a
novelty. For ihe purpose of keeping
afloat as long as possible, he had
equipped his car with a six horse
power vertical propellor with the object  of lifting and  lowering his  bal
loon without discharging any of its
ballast. Frank P. l.aham, lieutenant
oi the Sixth r. S. cavalry, was the
oilier American competitor, llis balloon carried a recording barometer to
work for 24 hoi,rs and a number of
envelopes to be thrown out every two
hours ln order to mark the individual
trail. Food for ihree days was also
on board each car. Not the slightest
accident marred the start.

their baHoons, are as follows:

ihe Washington Logging & Brokerage
i Co. Im.   raised logging prices from $1

' i .-a -. Ivanced from $13 tu $14; mer-
hantable, $9.50 to $11, and X". - loge
from $7 to _;s.
These prices have been offered by
lumber manufacturers to independent
loggers fur ibe pasi twenty days, but
very few logs have been supplied even
at lhis advance over the market. The
Washington   Logging   _.-    Brokerage
| t'o. has been asked for 30,000,000 feet
i I logs that cannot be supplied, and
most if the mills in the market have
held ( ill   tempting  otters  of a  bonus.
j The brokerage company lias insisted
upon lirst supplying the mills with
which it has contracts.

The winter season Bhould lind the

without n single surplus log on hand,
bul Ihe mills will l.e about 50,000,000
feel short.
If the market demand for lumber
continues through the winter as ii has
during the summer and fall, the lum-j
ber mills will be seriously embarrassed before spring. It is probable
some of the plants that are depending -
upon loggers fur their supply will
either have to close entirely or greatly curtail their output.

London, Sept. 30.���Dr. F. J. Smith,
ii well known London physician, while
attending the conference of the British Medical association, held recently
iu Toronto, took the opportunity of
visiting Chicago and Inspecting the
Armour canned meat factories. He
has returned to London, and in an
Interview with the correspondent ol
the London Tribune gave his views on
the American ine.it packing scandal.
Wiiile not wholly agreeing with the
sensational statements of Upton Sin-
clair, be is of the opinion that con-
Improvements might be ef-
-     ,  I   in   ,':.,-   carrying   on   of the  In-
lust ry.
"As  you  know," he said, "Messrs.
\   iM.i;   invited  the   British  Medical
; ssociati'-n t" make tm official Inspi
.  ,.;' i..- :   factories,  but   for many
.    -   li s.-u   lation did   ll"t   see  ii
way to accept the Invitation. I derided io go and see .ur myself what
was the true state of affairs. 1 went
without    giving    any    warning.    The
bi.-: complaint I haw got to make is
that the buildings and appliances are
ol wood. The anim lis pass over
wooden Moors. The walls are wood.
Tbe trucks  which convey  the  meat
also are wood.
"Xow, you cannot call that clean'.-
In a business like that there must be
a lot of blood splashed about, which
soaks into the wood and becomes filthy. No amount of scrubbing' and
washing can make the floors clean;
Then, seeing the meat lying about on
the floors is not pleasant, and it is
bound to happen that odd little bits
will get into crevice, and in the
course of time become rotten.
"In an Industry like this there
sh a 1 ia- tiled Hours and walls which,
.viien work is over, can be thoroughly
cleansed. The factories would then
��� - mitary, while with wood that cannot p.'ssi ,!y be the case. There
shoul,1 not be the moving of canned
meats a! iut "ti these wooden trucks,
which , ��� stained and soaked with
a' i iin i grease. There was an entire absence of thai rush and feverish
- - which has I een so vividly described."
With regard to the charge that
there is a lack of inspection, Dr.
Smith said his observation convinced
hun thai this was absolutely untrue,
and it was impossible for diseased
animals to escape detection.
Russian Government
Cannot Find Hangmen
St. Petersburg, Sept. 30. ��� The
wholesale military executions going
on all over Russia are productive of
scenes which for terror and pathos
surpass the novelist's most vivid
Imagination,
The features are nearly always the

are defiant. It is the sheep-like docility of the majority which gives the
executions their most tragic feature.
The mutineers, though condemned
to hanging, are Invariably shot, lt is
Impossible to find a hangman in Russia, such is the hatred of capital punishment. The last two military hangmen committed suicide, and convicted
murderers refuse to execute men ou

Mr. Crankshaw, an expert in that line

experience in the fruit rasing industry. The packing of fruit for 6x-
portatlon is done in the agricultural

wack's busy spots this year. As an
instance of tii" enormous quantity of
fruit that i.s being exported from this
fertile valley, it may be mentioned
that from one orchard alone over

and packed for export.
A   new   departure   has   been   made

lb tn;. big city :i fgregation of fifty
minstrel performers, who will appear
ui ihe opera house on Thursday, Oct.
1. If glowing endorsements from the
leading press count I'or anything, the
Hi Henry show may bo counted on as
one of iho very best in its class.  The
! programme i.s one of innovations and
��� latest up-to-now Ideas and novelties,
strictly in tho latest line. "The world
moves," says Mr. Henry, "although
the  man  who first   sti id   it   was  made
i to take it back." Public taste is
fickle, und amusement managers must
change to satisfy il. Modern amusement management is plainly a survival   of  the  fittest.    This  Is  sound

is encircled with multi-colored electric

when she butted In the others had to

felt herself ns good ns engaged. Mr.
Ripley had praised her strength and
skill In rowing, her luck In fishing and
her emotional temperament nnd she
haul several times caught bim glancing
.���it her as a man only glances when bis
admiration Is aroused He had been
asked to tea three or four times, and
tha two had boated nnd fished every
afternoon, and all wns going well,
"How's It coming out, Sarah?" asked
brother Jim one morning at the break-

"But bow "nu j .ni be?"

Thai nfternoon she received a note
from Mr, Ripley excusing himself from

; ��� -. and two hours after she had read
the note she learned thnt li ��� was bII
tin: on the piazza with the Widow
Phelps, who had had two b isband i

Sarah planned fast from that tin i
on. Sarah had learned that Mr, Ripley
arose and breakfasted at 8 o'clock ll"
then spent an hour mi the veran! i
smoking nnd reading. The mill dam

nnd there wns Sarah Halllday in an

and ii wns plain to him that sh" musi

The best thing he could do, however,
wns in fall over bis rocking chair nnd
roll down the steps. Right under his
eyes the boat went ever the dam, and
right under his eyes n sawmill man,
who had never longed ti> be a hern,
Ashed Sarah out with a long pole. She
wns a heroine, but Insensible. They
rolled ber on a barrel. They ''r.i_;'-."l

Jim and tho doctor. She wns wrung
out and put to bed, nnd It wns two

"Now, then, what In the old Hnrry
were you doing In that boat nt that

"Rowing," she nnsv.   :��� "I

"But he surely called?"

"By thunder, Sarah, but 'sposln' you

A   CIVILIAN   HERO.
He   Served   His   Country   as   Truly   a*
Any Soldier In  Battle.
At the close of the Franco-Prus-
siun war a hasty conference was
held by the German leaders to decide upon the amount of indemnity
which should he exacted from
France. Bismarck, differing from
Von Moltke, telegraphed to Berlin
for a financier in whom lie had unbounded confidence. The man was
a Hebrew and was for some rea.011
disliked by the great Prussian general. When. therefore5 he pave Jiis
opinion that the amount demanded
should be so many thousand million
fnitics Von Moltke exclaimed impatiently:
"Absurd!    It is too much!"
"1 know the resources "of the
French people/' said the financier
calmly.   "They can pay it."'
"It is a monstrous demand!" repeated Von .Moltke angrily. "If a
mun had begun when the world was
created to count he would not have
reached that sum now."
"And that is the reason." interrupted Bismarck quickly, his eye
twinkling', "thut I got a man who
counts���from Moses.'*1
Von Moltke and the Hebrew tried
to look grave. Imt both laughed, and
the storm wus averted.
The sequel to the anecdote has a
deeper meaning. The financier,
when he received the summons to
the conference, was undergoing'
treatment for Mime affection of tbe
eye- whicli required confinement io
a dark chamber. His oculist warned him that if he obeyed the summons the exposure ami delay in the
treatment would almost inevitably
resull in loss of sight.
He was silent a moment and then
said: "I think that 1 ani needed. I
have no right to consider my sight.
I will go."
He went, nnd the results which
the oculist had feared ensued. He
became blind for life.
Von Moltke, when the story was
told him, said briefly: "I wronged
lhe man. I le has served his country as truly us any soldier on the
field."
Gold and  Siiver  Bugs.
The mosi remarkable gold hugs in
the world are found in Central
America. They belong In the genus |
plusiotis, and one mighl easily imagine a specimen to be 1 he work of
some clevoi- artificer in metal. The
bend and wing cases are brilliantly
polished, with a I nster us of gold itself. To sighl nml touch they have
nil the seeming of metal, and it. is
hard to realize that the creature is
n mere animal, Oddly enough, there
is unci her species of plusiotis from
thc same region, which bus the appearance of being wroughl in solid
silver, freshly burnished. One of
the mosl beautiful bugs in the world
is a small beetle known to science
ns the blue hoplia. Its hack is nn
exquisite iridescent sky blue, anil
the under pari of its body is of a ,
bright silver hue. The notion I':.it
it contains silver is widely entertained, and attempts have frequently been made lo extract Bilvci
from it.
