Now look out for squalls.  , An American robin    was    recently  found near Manchester, England. British naturalists are wondering how it  -crossed the ocean.  dice exists to-day to such ah extent  that United States Consul Mulligan has  mentioned it in his report to the State  Department."  Consideringf that Weyler has "pacified" nearly all of Cuba, his disinclination to get beyond range of the guns  of Morro Castle is unaccountable. *  It cost a Michigan man $20 to write  hi., name on the Washington monument at the National Capital. His autograph came high, hut the police magistrate had to have it.  Boston seems to have forgotten for  the moment the Bacchante, and is now  trying to find a suitable name for the  female chimpanzee, which is the kites:  addition at the Boston Zoo.  Roswell, N. M., has an artesian well  which spouts out 1,000 pounds of cooked fish an hour. It also has a tolerably robust prevaricator who serves as  special correspondent down there.  Old Claus Spreckels has reason to  feel with Lear how sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless  child. Not only did one of his sons  take the Spreckels money and start an  opposition sugar refinery, but now his  daughter has married against his will.  The old man is consoled somewhat by"  the fact that she preferred her own  love to her father's money, and returned to the old sugar king a million and  a half of property which he had deeded to her.  CHARTER IS REVOKED  MEXICAN   GOVERNMENT  WINDS  UP A CO-OPERATIVE COLONY.  According to an Oklahoma Senator  that Territory is a "happy land where  King Cotton and-corn and wheat grow  side by side in the same broad fields,  where the stately Cottonwood and magnolia wave their laurels from the same  green grove, and the honeysuckle and  morning glory form Eden bowers  around the humble collage of the un-  terrified sooner, and the lark's early  song a.wakes the. gray dawn of morn,  ancl the redbird and the robin close the  dewy eve of Sunday with joyful  praise."     ���������  Unparalleled Efforts Made by the  Victims -Result ii_ Complete Failnre���������  Lives and Treasure Lost in a Scheme  that Was Never Practicable.  In Providence, R. I., the other day  a wedding was celebrated in which the  bride was at'cnded by four of her former husbands ns ushers. The delicacy  of this novei arrangement cannot fail  to impress all lovers of good taste.  Olive green has been chosen by the  naval officers as the fighting color of  the new navy. The selection is the result of a series of tests with the torpedo-boat Cnshing, and the Animen  ram Katahdin, which proved olive  green to be the least visible at sea.  A negro citizen writes a letter to the  Atlanta Journal in which he says that  negroes do not expect or wish to ride  in the same car as the whites, but they  do 'ask that .they shall have equally  good accommodations for the same  money. "This is an absolutely just de-  maud," says the Journal. "The railroads which do'not voluntarily provide  equal accommodations, for equal pay  should be required-by law to do so.  When negroes are charged the same  fare as white people the cars and other  accommodations which are "set apart  for them should be as good and convenient in all respects as those, which  white persons occupy."  .  The infant Castellane which has just  come into the world is a great-grand-  nephew of Talleyrand and. a great-  ��������� grandson of Jay Gould! What a genius he will be if he grows up with the  diplomatic acumen of the first and the  financial ability of the second!  An American girl who married a foreign prince advises her countrywomen1  that a titled husband is exceedingly undesirable, and that such marriages,are  to be shunned. Tliis is enough to deter-  any .American girl from contracting a  marriage with a man of title���������until the  time when the man of title proposes. ���������   '  The squabble between McClure's  Magazine and the Pall Mall Magazine  over the serial rights- of Robert Louis  Stevenson's posthumous unfinished  story, "St. Ives," calls attention to the  fact that some of the English magazines are trying to get even with their  American' competitors, which haye invaded the English field, by bidding for  an American audience. The-Pall, Mall  has quite a large circulation in this  country. One little fact brought to  light by the controversy is the relative  prices of some of the work of popular  writers. Mr. McClure says that he paid  Kipling twice as much for the serial  rights of "Captain Courageous" as "St.  Ives" cost McClure's and the Pall Mall  together.  Stephen Crane, in describing the  .wreck of the Commodore, says: "In the  mournful twilight the lights of Jacksonville blinked ditnly. We were all  enveloped in a gentle satisfaction."  How.poetical! A more prosaic writer  probably would have dismissed the  subject with the simple statement:  "We were about half shot."

The Mexican government has revoked  the   charter  of   the Topolobainpo  colony on the west shore of that country.  Over 1,000,000 acres were covered by it.  and the action brings the end of the  Utopian hopes of hundreds of duped  colonists scattered over   the   Western  States, principally    Illinois,    Michigan  and Kansas. - The story is one of bright  outlooks, bitter   disappointments   and'  great suffering in the attempt to found  a perfect haven of prosperity.    It was  the dream of the theorists, and all who  went into it were hoping for lives of  unalloyed    happiness.    Not less    than  P1,000,000 has been spent in the effort  to bring prosperity out of the impossible conditions that existed.    That cooperation could succeed  on  the'coast  of Mexico,   with  the lack of facilities  that was to be expected, Avas considered the fairest proposition by the men  who started the colony.    They proved  to their  own satisfaction upon    hoAv  weak a foundation was the structure.  A. K. Owens, of Chester, Pa., ancl  later of New York, was the founder of  , the colony. No religious services were  to be allowed on the coast, and all were  to have the enjoyment of perfect freedom.  The first colonists went out in 1886  and had a severe time of it. There was  nothing ,to eat and it was fifty miles  to the nearest postoffice.' They caught  the smallpox and many of them died  of that disease and of starvation. All  winter they sent home for aid, and in  the spring it came. But the colony was  in very bad shape. At this time C. B.  Hoffman and John Breidenthalj both  wealthy, became interested In the  scheme, and the former was made the  president and the latter treasurer. They  used their efforts to get the colony on  its feet financially. In this they were  very successful and several hundred  people went to the new Mecca searching for homes and believing that here  they would' be relieved from all trouble. They wrote back to their friends  glowing letters, and for a few months  the outlook, was better. But the crops  failed ���������nd it was a serious matter for  the. colony.  Then it* was proposed to irrigate, and  the beginning of a big ditch from the  Fuei'te river, seven miles away, to the  lands of the company was undertaken.  For two years they worked on it, the  payment being in scrip receivable at  the colony store for the necessaries of  life. But when the ditch was done it  was found that it was useless, as it was  too .shallow. ������ The colonists began to  gcumble, jEs^S-ts there were about 800  *r6f them at  oJ)&DO J|ebastrar> QQJrf &*)  was \)\s nai7)^;^\  t)\{f)oWr) save to sublime ffohokus fame'  stood  like. ^incianatTus (at tl^e plouF  bndring the fe?hich, tlie ^herefore aadJKefiow:  is. acres broaid ley fa!low *a tbe  pis maids and rfoerc tbeir labors had begun  ������o stood he v/ieWihg all his vast* domain.

One  of them represents the horse asleep h.  his stall, carefully blanketed, the words  "Requieseat in pace" being carved on  thejside. of the marble blanket. Another clever design was a colossal  horseshoe on a pedestal, the jockey's  cap and whip being drawn on one sid-e  of the pedestal. On another slab is cut  a horse collar, broken, with the name  . and age of the horse below it.  "Ten or fifteen years ago,"' says a  business man quoted by the Philadelphia Record, "the canned meats put  up in square tins by American houses  were sold in great quantities in Samoa.  -It was not long before Australia and  -New Zealand packers saw that they  Were missing a good thing, so they sent  out agents who circulated a story  among the natives to the effect that  cheap American meats were composed  of human flesh. They said that in the  process of preparing the bones of dead  Chinamen for shipment to the Celestial  Empire from San Francisco the meat  was canned and labeled 'beef for Pacific island consumption. The story  gained credence to such an extent that  the natives shunned the square tins  aud could only be induced, to buy the  'round, flat tins put out by Australian  and New Zealand houses.

Millers find  it a difficult matter to get supplies of  desirable qualities, even at a considerable premium over the prices quoted foi  the, contract grades. Very little Western winter wheat has-.jthis year been  shipped east of the Allegheny Mountains, and yet millers in the Central  West are unable to get adequate supplies. Much of this season's crop ol  winter wheat wa. admittedly unsound;  but, with due allowance for this fact,  there must either be a great deal of  wheat hidden away at interior points  or the calculations of the government  and other experts with i-eference to the  yield of winter sown grain have been  wofully at fault. There is such unanimity in the testimony about deficient  supplies, and the comparatively liigli  prices obtainable for winter wheat appear to have such little influence in  drawing out concealed stocks, that the  conclusion seems irresistable that the  crop of winter wheat this season.was  more of a failure than the statisticians  have been willing to concede. Otherwise, where is the wheat? Growers  who have had frequent opportunities to  Mr. Hoffman went.to Europe and tried  to raise some funds* but without avail.  One of the capitalists came to the colony, but was unwilling to place his  money there. So the people who could  getaway began to leave and the colony  dwindled, for the supplies had given  .out   ���������.-���������..  In 1893 too the factional fights began  that have hastened the downfall of the  colony.   More colonists came back, and  in the management and the premises  upon which the colony was founded.  Some of the people wasted four years  of hard work and all they possessed in  the world and then had to come back  to their prairie homes and begin life  over. The end of it all has come now  for good and the remainder of the colonists will soon be this.side of the line.  Growth of a. Late.

The-  question in point turned largely upon,  the arrangements of the road's tracks,  switches and frogs.

The more the  Irishman was prodded the hotter he  became, although he did not lose hi������  head, but damaged the plaintiff's case.  Mr. Forrest saw the ground slipping;  from under him and began to look fot-  an opening to drop the witness without  further inquiry to his case. He succeeded in provoking a tart reply fro������  the witness, whereupon, thinking this-  his opportunity, waving his hand, Ue  said, sarcastically:  "That will do, Mr. Witness.

When  th<_ .in-nrw-jiv. onr-n. ns is the cus-   Grimes lifted an ax,-"to place it-among  their other possessions, a spark of elec-  T daybreak Indian Tom emerged from his wickiup and stood at  ���������the doorway, open, as is the custom, toward the east, whence the de-sort tribes expect a Messiah. He surveyed the forbidding landscape with'  an air of proprietorship. Tall, gaunt,  ��������� with an eyee like a coyote's and a skin  ���������clinging close to his bony frame, tanned to yellow parchment by-hundreds  of electric storms, Indian Tom was a  veritable wizard of the wilds. Half a  dozen snarling curs scattered at sight  of him, yelping, and the three squaws  who formed his household hastened  about their morning tasks. Evidently  there was excellent discipline at his  ���������rancheria.  Not far to the westward   rose   the  long, undulating outlines of the Funeral Mountains bordering Death Valley.  On every other   hand   stretched   the  monotonous wastes of the Mojave Desert, now a long way of barren plain,  now a range of hills rising above it. A  few yards from Tom's habitation was  a pool of, black water which oozed slowly from the ground on a little   slope.  When it reached a certain level, it overflowed and trickled'in a narrow rivulet  along the sands into a piece of ground  inclosed by wires. , Here it kept alive  a scanty growth of native grasses.    In  the background of Indian Tom's immediate landscape were dozens of burros,  .which constituted his worldly wealth  and made him a loid among his fellows.   When a burro became famished  to the point of starvation on the sparse  sage-brush, it was admitted to the little  inclosure and permitted to feed until it  could stand strong upon its legs.  Thc-i  lt was clubbed forth upon the desert  again.   Indian Tom often sold burros  to prospectoiN., but the number did not  diminish, and  the source of constant  supply was a mystery which no man  had fathomed. ������������������  1 Above the low mountains in the distant east the sun rose like a ball of fire.  There were no soft tints of blue and  purple along the summits to herald the  approach of dawn and indicate a little  moisture in the air. But instead came  a sudden flare of light that burned at  once in the sky and along the mountain  sides and on the wide reaches of the  plains. The air was shot through and  through with penetrating, stinging  rays. Here and there appeared puffs of  , (wind, whirling sand .aloft, with an  ominous, swinging,"funnel-like motion.  And in the :far north these gradually  increased, until a cloud, of\ dust hung  _ like a,curtain against the sky, higher  above the earth than the tops of the  ���������highest mountains. Indian. Torn surveyed the scene, sniffed the hot blasts  ���������which saluted' his withered nostrils,  and muttered, in the composite lingo  iwhich he had picked up from prospectors of different nationalities: "Ugh!  Mucho calor! * Heap dam hot wind!"  Then, as one of his squaws placed before him a chunk of dingy-looking  bread, a black bottle, and a savory  combination of jack-rabbit and bacon,  be squatted beside them, upon the  ground, and attacked, with great gusto,  a breakfast which, for a desert Indian,  ���������was an epicure's dream.  Three hours later the shifting gusts  of wind had united in a constant furnace blast.   And at a point fifteen miles^  from Indian Tom's, across the range,'  and upon the edge of ihe basin-like depression known as Death Valley, two  men were suffering constant torments  from  the almost   insupportable   heat.  These    were   Anderson   and primes,  propectors.   At the first indications of  an  electric  storm they had prepared  an insufficient shelter by making a low  tent of some canvas, under which they  had crawled for protection.   They had  also tried to shield their two burros by  muffling their heads in gunny-sacks, to  screen them   from  the  driving ..sands  ;,whichrodeonthe sweeping blasts of the  'norther.    This sand penetrated everywhere, and cut the skin, If exposed, like  : needles.   Its drift was not sufficient to  jbury any living, moving thing alive,  but man or beast might   become   ex-  jhausted by the heat, and so Incapable  .'of motion, and then suffocated. Grimes  and Anderson had placed the various  articles of their mining outfit as a low  tricity passed to his arm, with a report  like the crack of a pistol, and the arm  was still benumbed from the shock.  "The high electrical, tension in the atmosphere was! in itself, a tremendous  strain upon the nerves. Moreover, it  burned all vitality out of the air and  added to its heat. To expose a hand  from the partial shelter of the canvas  meant a blister on the skin; and the  two men lay upon the ground,. struggling for breath, moistening their lips,  every few moments, from the contents  of their canteens, and swearing a constant succession of miners' oaths at the  "luck" which had brought them to the  confines of Death Valley on this direful day.  "I wonder if the critters is alive?"  said Anderson, in a lull of the tempest  which permitted the raising of his  voice above the whistling of the wind.  "If they be," he added, " 'twould be a  mercy to wet their noses with a little  water."  Grimes struggled to his feet, throwing off the weight of the canvas, which  had been pressed down upon them by  the������ drifting sand. Five minutes later  the burros had been resurrected, the  gunny-sacks had' been removed from  their beads/and their mouths had been  thoroughly sponged. When these things  had been done, and everything had  been adjusted for a probable recurrence of the tempest, the men found  that they had just one canteen of water  left, one -which had been filled at Coyote Hole as they had come past a few  hours before. It had been kept until  the last as being the' freshest. They  each took a "pull" at this.  "It's pretty bitter and brackish, isn't  it?" Grimes remarked. "Some way I  never liked that water. It tastes to  me like arsenic and asphalt.   But���������by   , it's good!    Give me some more.  It's good, it's good, it's good.   Ha! this  is life. No man knows what joy he can  get out of a little thing until he's been  almost dead with hunger or with thirst.  Don't you think so, pard?"  "Don't be an idiotic fool," Anderson  replied. "The wind's a-comin' up again.  Better curl down here behind the outfit,  and see that you make that water go  jest as fur as it will. If we can stand  it till night, and the moon comes up,  and the wind goes down, and the burros is alive, and we can git to Indian  Tom's, where there's water, we're all  right. 'But if we can't���������why, then we're  jest dead and buried, and that's all  there is of it," was Anderson's grimly  philosophical reply.  So, as the long afternoon wore drearily on,' tbe two men lay under their improvised shelter and suffered in silence, their lips too parched and swollen to talk, their eyes bloodshot, their  cheeks puffed and blackened as the  blood thickened and grew sluggish in  their veins. They turned their faces  apart, as though each dreaded to witness the sufferings of the other, and  pressed their swollen lips against their  teeth to keep back tell-tale groans.  When the sun went down, blood-red  in the' w-nst, the wind sank to rest, like  .tbjtnspont wrath of an angry giant. The  beatr which had been pressing down  upon the earth, seemed lifted all at  once and flung abroad into space. For  a brief interval the darkness of night  swept over the mountains, pierced in  the illimitable vault overhead by thousands of brilliant points of fire. Then  the moon came up, swimming in a sea  of silvery radiance. Anderson and  Grimes, by a supreme effort, aroused  themselves from the lethargy which  had overtaken them in the closing  hours of the day, and prepared to  leave the spot where so much suffering  had been compressed into so brief a  time.  They had adjusted the pack upon No:  bles, the smaller of the two burros, and  were preparing to "cinch" the load on  Jerusalem, a big and brawny specimen  of her patient race, and their principal  . dependence as a pack animal. Anderson stood with his foot against her  side, pulling on the rope that held the ,  pack >n place, when properly adjusted.  But there was no answering pull from  the other side, where Grimes , was  standing.    Anderson was angered.  "Why the devil don't you pull?" he  thundered. Then, in gentler tones,  "Why, boy, what in the name of Simon  Peter's ghost,is ailin' you? Have you  got the St. Vitus dance?"  ' Grimes was reeling in aimless circles, frothing at the mouth and making inarticulate cries of pain. Then  he fell to the ground, and his legs and  arms threshed the ground with spasmodic contortions. Then came nausea,  worse than any seasickness. And a  moment later Grimes sat up and "pulled himself together."  "God!" he said. "That's terrible.  Little tlie worst I ever had. Who  would have thought a man could live  through such pain as that?"  "I tell you what," Anderson replied.  "You've eaten something that don't  agree with you���������it's almost like poi-'  son. You're locoed. We've got to  camp here again and make some coffee^  to settle your stomach."  Fortunately, a little alcohol stove and  the necessary fuel were in the outfit.  It took only a few minutes to prepare the coffee, in the making of which  they used the last water that they had.  Both drank freely; Grimes declared  that he was better; the process of loading the packs was completed, and they  broke camp, heading for a' curved  notch in the mountains, the head of a  canyon, beyond which were Indian  Tom's and safety.  ' After a mile or two of travel, almost  in silence, Grimes called a halt.. "I'll  have to rest," he said. "I'm sick again.  I hate to say so, but I can't go on."c  "I'm pretty bad myself," Anderson  replied, when they had stopped.  'Queer, isn't it?" Then suddenly the  same symptoms which had so tortured  his friend, although in a lesser degree  ���������spasmodic, uncontrollable contractions of the muscles, a wretched nausea, and a burning, intolerable thirst,  which seemed to dry up every atom of  vitality and to cleave to the very centers of existence., But Anderson was  strong, and ��������� he fought like a lion  against his unseen foe. When he recovered a little from the paroxysms, of  pain, he found Grimes prostrate, moaning pitifully, and apparently unable to  move.   -  "It was in the water," said Anderson.  "We've been poisoned.' Those devilish  coyote-bounty hunters have put strychnine in the springs. Five dollars for a  coyote's scalp and a man or two thrown  in.   Hell, what a country this is!"  "It's that fiend, Indian Tom," whispered Grimes. "He's poisoned the  water at Coyote Hole, and he'll be looking fer our burros to-morrow.' ��������� If I can  live long enough to stick a knife into  him, I'll be satisfied,"- and the remnants of the tortured man's voice wandered off into incohei'ent curses.  Anderson rallied all his powers to  meet the situation. "I can walk," he  said', "and you can ride. Old Jerusalem is strong. I'll tie you on top of the  pack, and we'll' get out of here yet.  Brace up!"*  "For God's sake, Andersoon, shoot  me," Grimes replied. "I can't stand  this torture any longer. We've been  good friends, you and me.. Take your  revolver and blow my brains out. If  you have any love for me, do what I  say, won't you? Shoot me, man, shoot  me."  "Now, see here," said Anderson,  "Done of that. You stop that kind of  talk, or I'll bat you over the jaw. Stop  kickin' now, and keep quiet. Here you  go.'' Then, exerting all of his waning  strength, Anderson lifted his companion to the top of Jerusalem's load, and  propped him between two rolls of blankets. He tied him securely in place,  and started the burros ahead, walking  beside Jerusalem and listening to the  heart-rending demand of agonized human nature, "Shoot me, shoot me,  -shoot me," until he was himself frantic with the mingled passions of anger, pity, and fear.  Thus they traversed the sloping rim  of Death Valley and the comparatively  level ground above it, and came to the  long, winding canyon which opens upon the confines of the valley and, at its  upper extremity, forms a pass in the  Funeral range, beyond which lie those  continuations of the desert where, at  this time, Indian Tom's wickiup and  {lie adjacent springs were the mos. important signs of life. At intervals  when Jerusalem, staggering beneath  her double load, stopped to rest, Anderson was compelled to lisce.n ro the  delirious ravings of his friend, who  constantly begged for suseeas-. from  pain by death as for some priceless  favor.  The situation was intolerably oppressive to Anderson. The physical  pain which he endured, although terrible, was nothing in comparison  with his mental torments as he listened to his friend. There were moments  when be despaired of the issue, and  argued with himself that neither could  survive the toilsome journey; that both  must die; and that it were better to  end all at once.  Centering his mind upon this question, and weighing it pro and con, Anderson' directed Nobles and Jerusalem  along the narrow, precipitous sides of  the canyon, now on the right, now on  the left, here shuffling in sand, there  stumbling over rocky ground where  some brief winter torrent had washed  the thin soil from the mountain-side.  Tbe breeze - which was drawn downward through th. canyon was cool and  exhilarating to a degree that w;as surprising, wher one remembered how  the desert expanses over which it had  been borne had so recently been broiled beneath a fiery sun and swept by a  flaming tornado. The moonlight, too,  was very beautiful, and the stars, dimmed by the light of the moon, yet distinct, shone with that perpetual calm  suggestive of eternity. Gradually a  sense of euthanasia, a, longing for  death, came over Anderson's spirit. It  would be so easy to breathe away from  that broken tenement and to become  a sentient yet indestructible portion of  the mighty universe which upheld  those brilliant points of light through  an infinity of space.  In this frame of mind Anderson no  longer replied to ^he pleadiugs and  groanings of Grimes until they had almost completed the ascent of the canyon, and the burros paused, from sheer  inability of move further, upon the  highest point where the sides of the  gorge dropped abruptly away into unknown depths, shrouded *in darkness,  , whero there" was no fantastic play of,  the moonlight. Here Grimes called  softly" for water, asking in the tone of  a spoiled child who believes that its  mother denies its request from caprice.  There was something iD the tone, and  in the repeated, insistent demand that  cut Anderson to the heart. It was really such a little thing, yet so impossible. "Water, water, won't you give  me water? Only a drop, one little  drop, and I'll be satisfied."  "Come," said Anderson, gently, "can't  you be yourself for jest a minute?  Don't you know that I can't give you  water?   Try to reason, jest a little."!  "Water!" was the imperious reply���������  "water, or kill me; in rnercy."  Anderson drew his revolver from its  holster for the first time. The moonlight glanced from the polished steel  as he held the handle toward Grimes.  He intended to test him.  "Here is the revolver," he said. "Take  it and use it."  "I can't," was the reply. "My arms  are paralyzed. I can't lift my elbows.'  Don't*, you see that I'm only a wreck  of a man���������nothing left of me except a  voice and a brain that's all on fire?  Anderson, I'm myself now. I know  what I'm saying," and I call on you, as  you are my friend, to do your duty."  Anderson hesitated for a moment.  He wavered to and fro and toyed with  the revolver, undecided. Th'c-n; with a  with a quick movement, he turned the  weapon upon his own heart and" pulled,  the trigger. .There was a report, followed by a cry. Anderson threw his  arms into the air, fell, clutched vainly  at the edge of the precipice, and disappeared into the depths.  Again, at the first break of day, Indian Tom stood at the door of his  wickiup, holding erect his meager  form, unbent by the weight of a hundred years, and gazing into the far  reaches of the landscape. The atmosphere, swept by the norther of the day  before free from every particle of  moisture, was perfectly transparent,  and every outline of the mountains,  every naked rock and shrunken desert  bush, was distinct with a startling individuality.  Here and there a jack-rabbit bounded over the barren plain, or a coyote  sneaked away from the approach of.  day. Shuffling unsteadily across the ���������  sands came two gray forms which  Tom watched intently from their first  appearance in the' distance. Nobles  was in advance, with the lighter load,  crazed for w7ater, and frantic to bury  her nose in the black, sluggish ooze  beneath the shadow of Tom's habitation. Then came Jerusalem, trembling  with fever and weariness and staggering under her twofold burden. For,  lying back upon the blankets, tied so  that it could not fall, was a human  form, rigid, uncovered, the beard and  cheeks flecked with bloody foam, the  glassy eyes staring unmoved into the  face of the morning sun.  Then- Indian Tom, lifting his hands  t othe east, chanted, in guttural monotone, a verse of thanksgiving to the  spirit.on high who puts into the white  man's heart the lust of gold, and sends  him forth into the wilds, driving his  deft-footed little beasts laden with the  miner's pick and pan, with tobacco,  with bacon, and, best of all,, with whisky, which warms the marrow and  gladdens the heart of the Great Father's dusky servant���������William M. Tis-  dale, in San Francisco Argonaut.  Never go from a warm atmosphere  Into a cooler one without keeping the  mouth closed, so tha. the air may be  warmed in its passage through the nose  before it reaches the lungs.  Never strain the voice in the effort to  speak while hoarse. Wait until the-  hoarseness' is recovered from, or the  voice may be permanently injured or  difficulties of lhe throat produced.  Never stand still in cold weather for  any length of time in the outdoor air,  especially after having taken active exercise; and. never stand long on the  ice or snow, or, where the person is  exposed to cold wind.  Many believe in withholding salt, pepper, etc., from the sick.   This is wrong.  Whatever is done toward making the  diet desired and appreciated promotes"  its digestion.  Water and air are food-stuffs. Water acts as a carrying agent to transport foods to the different tissues. The  oxygen of the air is need for the tissues and fluids of all forms of animal  life. " ' ,  The food of a person doing ordinary,  work should be proportioned as follows: Four ounces of proteids or albuminoids, four or five ounces of fats (increase this as the necessity for work  or, heat increases), eighteen to twenty  ounces of starches, and one. ounce of  salts. ',  A mustard-plaster ought never to  blister the skin.- If it;burns too much  an extra piece of muslin' can be placed .  between it and the body, and can be  removed when the patient becomes ac-  "customed to the heat. Mix 'the mustard with equal quantities of flour and  ground ginger.  It has been found by experiment that'  tea retards digestion. An infusion of  1 per cent, of tea causes a perceptible  delay; a 3 per cent, infusion will.delay  the digestion, sometimes, as much as  twelve times the normal period; a 10  per cent, decoction arrests the digestion of all starchy foods. ,  ���������  The eyball rests" in a cushion of fat,  by which it is surrounded on every,  side. When the system becomes greatly emaciated through diseases, this fat  is absorbed, and the eye sinks further ���������  Into the head, thus giving the sunken  appearance so common in'disease.  Butter is highly recommended as a  food for pulmonary and other invalids.  Therefore, if .butter is agreeable to the  individual, and occasion no gastric or intestinal disorders, it would seem an im- ���������  portant adjunct to the present dietetic  treatment. Then, ;too, if it is an advantage -in this condition, why not in  other were facts are indicated?  THE   SCENTOGRAPH.  The Smelling: Machine Is One   of  the  Wonders of the Moment,  A machine which he claims will take  Its place by the side of the phonograph  has been invented by Louis Kramer,  a Missourian, who moved to Bingham-  ton, N. Y., about a year ago. It la  used to receive and magnify odors of  all kinds and is called a scentograph.  A patent is to be applied for, but it has  been already practically tested. It will  take a liquid heretofore regarded as  odorless and distill the most delicate  perfume. A drop of perfumery, or essence placed on the receiver will produce an odor that would in a very,  short time cause symptoms of suffoca-  She Called, but  Alas!  "I never was so disgusted and angry  in my life," said Mrs. de Garmo.  "What's the trouble?" her husband  inquired.  "This afternoon that rich Mrs. Hilton, whom I have been dying to have  call on me, came just as I was getting  ready to take a bath."  "Too bad. Wouldn't she stay until  you could get ready to see her?"  "That's just it. I rushed around and  almost broke my neck getting into my  best clothes, only to find out when I  got downstairs that she had called to  see If I wouldn't like to buy a 50-cent  ticket to an entertainment that the  Good Samaritan Society was getting  up for poor sewing girls.

The grocer might utilize it In  detecting adulteration in goods, while  it has been suggested that bank paper  can be tinctured with a special scent,  imperceptible to the ordinary sense of:  smell, but which could be easily detected when placed in the scentograph,  lessening liability of counterfeiting.. It  Is also claimed that the machine will  be popular in homes, hospitals, sick  rooms, where the air can be kept permeated by most delightful fragrance.  The machine is about twelve inches  square and eight high. Mr. Kramer  says it can be manufactured for ������50. It  is thought he will have no trouble In  obtaining financial aid for organizing  a company to place is on the market aa  soon as the patent is granted.  There are others, but people never  find it out until they are married, and it  is too late.  \ "  .-     7  -S*  - V-' Mirror  If'  .-ay.������������������.������������������������  ....���������-_���������_, ���������fr-n-n-.j  i my ������-^i,flr-*rvi .htfrsv un'lu^'fiieiMiTHvi^^^iffitLi/^fip  THE WEEKLY NEWS MARCH.  23rd.  1897.

History of the Present Uprising--  Story of the fctormy Islam! from  Its Discovery���������Topo-_rai>l__cal, and  Climatic Conditions.  A. Lnnd of Rebellion.  Nearly two years have elapsed since  the Cuban, declared tbat they would no  ' longer endure the yoke of Spain. Millions of dollars have been expended during that time, both in the maintenance of  armies,find the destruction of the property of the people of the war-swept island.  OESEKAL J ___T RUIZ RIVKRA.  Feb. 24, 1S05, is the date upon which  the insurgents declared their indopend-  ; ence, and before the end of the month  martial law had been proclaimed in Havana, Jose Marti was placed at the head  of the provisional government, and Gen.  Maximo Gomez bad arrived in Cuba to  begin operations.   '  The history of the island runs coincident with our own, and is therefore interesting. ��������� Cuba -was discovered by Christopher Columbus Oct. 28, 1492, sixteen days  after he touched at  San   Salvador,   and  nineteen years Inter his son, Diego, colonized the island, Pope Leo X. erecting its  first cathedral.   Velasquez followed with  new contingents, and in   1519 the capital  .was located, at once assuming a position  of  importance  in- the   eyes  of   the   freelances of the ocean.    In  153S a French  adventurer sacked -the town, which was  rebuilt   when    Ferdinand    De  Soto,  the  discoverer of the Mississippi River,  was  made Governor.    Spain prized Havana as  a base of operations.    There Cortez completed his preparations for the conquest  of Mexico,  and there Pizarro rested his  men before proceeding to Peru.    Despite  the  strong  fortress  erected,  the  French  in 1554 again destroyed  tbe town, when  two other  fortresses for  the defense  of  Havana were built, which still exist���������the  ���������Moro and the Punta.   By 1.600 the colonists   were    raising    cattle,   and   applying  thumb-screws  and   the torch to  the natives to induce them to reveal the spots  -where they  found   gold  and  silver nuggets.   Then they, started the cultivation of  tobacco and sugar,  and the woes of the  natives began.   Under a system of cruelty  and oppression the gentle aborigines diminished   so; rapidly   that   negro   slaves  were introduced, and that eventually led  to the internecine strife which has made  one of the fairest spots on earth the home  of pestilence and crime and savagery in  iwarfare, . the   contemplation    of    which  sickens a civilized woiid.(  After invasions by the French, English  and Dutch, and various claims as* to the,  ownership of the island, Cuba was restored to Spanish rale in 1763. A new  native population now sprung up, and in  ���������1790 Las Casas, whose memory is re-  .vered by Cubans to this day, became  captain general of Cuba. Its ports were  opened to the world, and great public improvements were effected. Despite the  dawning of prosperity, liowever, and the  of them veterans of the war of 1868-78���������  were landed in the eastern ^*pvinces,  where white and colored workmen of the  plantations and small villages were induced to take up arms.  The location  of  Cuba is such  that in  case of annexation to the United States  or even the certainty of its independence,  the commercial benefits accruing to this  country would be very great and lasting.  It is only ISO miles from Florida, and although   containing   only   43,319   square  miles, or a little more than half the area'  of the State of Kansas, every section is  stored   with   rich   natural  resources.     It  has valleys that are susceptible of rais-'  ing the finest grades of vegetable luxuries,  and  mountains S.000 feet high.     It  has 260 rivers,  and its seasons are uniformly divided���������rain from May to October, sunny skies from'November to April.  The  population  is fully  adequate  to  al!  possible national and commercial requirements.    Five years ago it was announced  at    l,r>21,0S4,   of    whom    977,992   were  Spanish,   10,032  foreign  whites,  4S9.2-19  blacks, and 48,811 Chinese. Havana alone  is credited with 'a population of 200,000  souls.    There are' several short railways,  in the' aggregate covering some 500 miles.  Cuba abounds in citrus fruits.    There  are   peerless   orange,    lemon    and     lime  groves;   cocoanuts,    cocoanut oil,  cocoa,  coffee, india rubber,  tobacco���������these commodities form the base of supplies easily  obtained,   while  the interior and  middle  sections   boast   immense   forests  of   mahogany and dye 'woods.    It is estimated  that there are 13,000,000 acres of uncleared mahogany forests alone.    The wood is  so common that chopping blocks are made  of it, and watering troughs of red cedar.  Lignum vitae   for   flutes, lancewood   for  carriage   shafts   and    surveying   instruments, and other fine varieties of rare and  precious limber'also exist in wild and unlimited volume.    There is the richest kind  of grazing for  cattle.     Forty-four times  more food can be secured from an  acre  of bananas than  from  an  acre of potatoes,  and   it  is  claimed  that  from   that  small   area   in   Cuba .20,000   pounds   of  flour  can   be obtained  in  a  single  year,  and the much-used banana wine in proportion.     With    all    these   manifold   resources, it is estimated that the island in  normal  times   would    take   $300,000,000  worth of merchandise annually from the  the oppression of those years were heroic.  Persecution made martyrs. In one instance, a boy of 15 was arrested for  seditious writings. He was loaded with  chains, kept at hard labor, and finally  sent to Spain. Here he became a brilliant  journalist.' This boy was Jose Marti, the  great Cuban patriot, who by 1891 had  formed patriot clubs everywhere, and who  was the first to appear as a war leader  when the present revolt broke out.  The war in Cuba may be primitive in  its general "methods and barbarous in  tbe matter of butchery, but it is certainly  modern in the rapid development of dynamite'and other explosives as weapons of  offense   and   defense.    To   the dynamite  new year, however, the situation seems  just as complex and undetermined as it  was the day after 'the two chieftains  hoisted their flag in the eastern province,  and began the battle for freedom. The  end is apparently' no nearer than it was  a month after the first call to arms.  Woman in Business.  Woman's introduction into the business world is no longer an experiment.

It requires superhuman nerve,  however, to face a healthy dynamite projectile, and it is no wonder that the Spanish troops liave been invariably defeated  when called upon to make a stand against  such weapons. Army officers are watching the war in Cuba with great interest,;  as the employment of dynamite by the  Cubans has satisfied the military mind of  not a man, takes Tier place. The -type  remains. More and more places are  being made for women, to such an extent that a recent census bulletin' reports the increase In the number of  women employed in gainful occupations during, the period between 1870  and 1890 to have been 113 per cent,  while in trade and transportation the  increase was 1,051 per cent. This  change is significant. It is, in fact, a  revolution.

Good  governors were few, and from'Velasquez  down to Weyler, they were vested with  ���������absolute power. Insurgents were burned  alive, intolerance throve, and the merciless dealings of* the despots finally effected  an amalgamation of the white, red and  folack races. The insurrection referred to  ���������was quelled, but others followed, and two  years since the restive spirit of the people, galling under an unjust yoke, was  augmented by still worse Spanish mis-  Igovernment. The beet sugar production  jpf Germany made Cuban culture unprofitable. With hard times came discon-  Jteiat. The stupid Madrid Government  'continued its oppressive taxation, injustice  jand nepotism, and exiled patriots saw  .their opportunity to give affairs a political  'character.  !    Money was raised, arms bought, ships  jchartered  and parties of patriots���������some  United States, to which country 'it now(  sells 250,000,000 cigars every year.  Up to the present time, when Cuban independence is still hovering in the balance, the history of the last great struggle for independence in Cuba.involves the  same line of victories and, reverses, that  characterized the strife of the '60s, ohly  that  the   people   seem   more   determined  and .better   organized.     The   death    of  Marti May 19, 1895, ��������� and that of Maceo  a few weeks since, were severe blows for  the    insurrectionists,    for   they   idolized  these men, but intrepid leaders are not  lacking.    Marti's great political act was  the summoning of the September convention, which declared a provisional government.    He was shrewd, and persistent,  and in an incredibly brief space of time  had vast quantities of firearms imported  from the United States.    By December,  lS95,.*the Cuban forces were right in tho  center of the Spanish army.    The latter  were driven back for seven  consecutive  days, and Campos, then in command, was  forced  to  change his  strategic positions  by Gomez, being overwhelmed at Calisco,  Christmas eve, Gomez, as he had promised, was within a few miles of Havana  and Matanzas, and so certain of success  seemed the efforts of the  patriots,  that  Gen.  Weyler  was  sent  "to  subdue  this  conglomeration of negroes, bandits, assassins and adventurers."    Then' began the  policy of terror ancl butchery ever since  diligently pursued.    The' tortures inflicted  on prisoners, on suspects, on helpless, innocent women and children, almost outrival the Armenian  cruelties; men  were  lashed to death, slowly garroted, women  and    children    were    cast   into   burning  houses,   blistered   with   lighted   matches,  dismembered, and these horrors, coupled  with a memory of wrhat 300 patriot Cubans were suffering in  Spain's pet  convict   colony���������Ceuta���������fired  the   blood  of  every  true  native   patriot   anew,    and  brought to them the sympathy of nearly  every nation on the earth.    The Cubans  stood firm, with nearly three-fourths of  the island under control, with their civil  government fully established in Santiago,  Puerto Principe,   Santa Clara  and   several minor provinces.  It is a remarkable fact that when Campos, "the strong man of Spain," arrived  ha Cuba with 36,000 soldiers "to recognize  belligerent rights" in 1S76, out of 145,000  soldiers previously sent, not enough had  returned to their native land to constitute  a  regiment.

At present there are four torpedo-boat destroyers in the hands of  builders. The first two have recently  completed their official trials, and these  have been most successful in all respects.  The* dimensions of the vessels are 220x  20 feet, and the engines are triple expansion, developing 6,000 horse power. The  engines at the trials, both in the measured  mile arid in the three hours' continuous  steaming test, worked smoothly and with  "no heating. The internal appliances are  of the most up-to-date character, special  die class family in which the father  was a small business man, an expert  mechanic, or a farmer capable of supporting his family with decency If not  absolute comfort, were expected tp stay  at home and help with the housework  until they went to preside^ over homes  of their own. It was considered something of a slur to say that a man's  daughters were obliged to go" out to  work. Nowadays this sentiment is reversed. A business training is as much  a matter, of course for the daughters as  for the sons.* And no one is surprised  when the daughters prefer, putting the  training into practice,instead of devoting their time to household duties enlivened with social amusements. The  growth of the idea that woman is an  individual, not an appendage, that she  has social duties and moral responsibilities as well as men, is really at the  bottom of the revolution.���������Lippincbtt's.  FASTEST RUN ON  RECORD.  A������ Old Engineer   Telia   of   the Great  Time He Made on a Railroad.  Western roads have recently set up so  many claims as to their ability to make  fast runs and break the record, it is  possible the following story, told by an  old engineer, of how he once broke all  records and pulled a freight at the rate-  of G75 miles an hotir, ,may end the controversy for the time being.  "Really, my .son," said the engineer,  as he oiled the drivers of the huge locomotive he had just backed into the ���������  depot,  "tbe fastest time I ever made  was the fastest run ever made in this  or any other country.    I was hauling  freight then, aud running an old Baldwin mogul.   We had started,east with  a train of twenty-one cars,  and four  of them were loaded with powder.    I  was a little afraid of powder, and was  pleased to'note that the cars containing  the explosive was near the rear of the  train.    Wo stopped on a siding to let,,  . tbe west-bound express pass, and then  pulled out and lot her go for all she  was worth, so that we could get over  the tunnel summit.   The top of the hill  was just at the entrauco Lo the tunnel, ���������  and as the track was not in very good  shape in the tunnel I shut off steam and  eased her up a 111 tie after getting start- '  ed down the bill, r Tbat was where I  made a mistake', for ten'of the cars had  broken loose, after,the engine and first  eleven cars had passed over the sum-,  mit, and the momentum carried them  over tbe knuckle, and they came down  after us fifty miles an hour.   Just about  the middle of the tunnel they struck us  with terrible force���������and then it was that  I made the fast run, for -you seerthe  powder exploded and my engiue and *  all the cars that were left shot out,of  the tunnel just like wads out of a big  gun.   My breath was fairly taken away  by the speed, and 1 had to hold tight to   ,  the cab to keep from being left behind.  Old 71 kept the rails and shot out of the  other 'end of that hole,  going at the  rate of 675 miles an, hour; in fact, we  went so fast that the. watchman did  not see us pass, although he heard the  terrible  report,  and thought that the-  tunnel had caved in.   When we reached  the little, town of S  we were going  abo.ut 350 miles an hour, having lost "  some of our velocity. Of course, only  a few of the cars kept the" track,' and  they all had hot boxes and flat wheels  when we finally came to a stand. It  was 4:03 when we entered the tunnel,  and allowing a minute from that time ..  till the explosion took place we ran the  eight miles in just forty-six seconds,  according to my watch. Old 71 lost 'her  side rods and connecting rods, and two  of her tires, -and had her smokestack-  carried off by tbe wind pressure, but  she was able to pull in on the side track,  and just at that moment the operator    ���������  received  a  telegram   from   O ,   six   '������������������  miles on the other side of the tunnel,  which read:  "'Caboose No.-64 and two   smoking  cars just flew by, leaving boards In the    ���������  air, which are still falling.    Rails are  red-hot from the friction.'  "That, young man, was the fastest ,  run I ever made, and I don't want to  break the record again." And then,  without even a smile,, the old man  crawled up on the cab of the big express engine and got ready to pull out  with the limited.���������Boston Herald. j  GAKCIA'S HORRIBLE TORTURE.  attention being paid to what is the,general  defect in all torpedo craft, namely, ventilation.

The mystery surrounding the origin  of the Indian race is greatly enhanced  by listening to some of the quaint legends. Here is one of them, related  by the older men of the Mojave tribe:  "At .the time of the Mojave, the white  man, the negro and all other people  lived together with their god, Mule-  yelia, whose mother was the earth and'  whose father the heaven.  "They were all supplied with food,  clothing and many luxuries. Besides  these -they had toolsvand all kinds of  implements and machinery to work  with.. .������������������,.*���������.'  "Everything was manufactured, and  especially matches. ���������  "One day Mulevlia died, and all the  people,. excepting the Mojaves, fled,  after looting the camps of everything  they could lay their bands on, not even  leaving *a match.  "Here was a pretty state of affairs,  and the dead god awaiting cremation!  "There seemed to be no other alter-  native than to dispatch a messenger  .or a spark from one of. tbe brilliant  luminaries of the upper region, and a  coyote was sent to a star for some fire.  "After a long time he returned without success and so hungry that he tried  to eat up the dead god.  "Mastanho, the man, sat by rubbing  willow sticks together and produced  fire, which they used in burning up  Mulevelia.  "After the cremation, which took  place somewhere near Fort Mojave, the  mountains at the foot of the canyon  parted, and the Colorado flowed  through and swept the ashes away.  "Mastonho now became chief and divided] the Indians into tribes and gave  them their allotments of land."���������Los  Angeles Herald.  Explained at Last.

It is a sort of apartment arrangement in which he carries around his  whole family, but this is really suggestive  as to the use of outside pockets in the overalls of working men, who, in machine  shops and factories, are subjected to sudden hurts and severe" bruises. If a bottle  of St. Jacobs Oil were stored-away in some  of these outside pockets, handy and ready  for use when some of the sudden hurts  and bruises take place,' there   would   be  ' hardly any. loss of time in the cure of the  worst of tnem.

"  < A case reported fjom Fr_sno county i*  that of a well-known former resident of  , Kingsburg,    though   now   residing   at  6elma. ,  Mr. J. M. Purves is ��������� an old gentleman, of 70, who, during; his long residence in Kingsburg, was beloved alike  hy young and old, and he is equally en-'  'deored to the people,of his new home.  It was about July 15, 1896, that a  reporter of the Republican. met Mr.  ���������Purves, and was astonished to see such  improvement in his appearance. He  looked ten years younger and much  stouter than when he moved away from  Kingsburg for the benefit of his health,  . and  he  was congratulated on, his improved appearance.  "I was all run down when I moved  ftvray," Mr. Purves said; "something  like an'old clock that is 'worn out, but  I have undergone such repairs as I  think will keep me in running order  for many years to come if no accident-  occurs."  "What was the agent that wrought  the change, Mr. Purves," the reporter  aeked. "Was it Pink Pills? they seem  to be doing all the healing in Fresno'  county."  "Pink Pills  are the very things that  NEEDLE GUN AND VENOM BOX.  - . - 1  have built me. up," Mr. Purves answered. "I happened to read one of  the advertisements of their healing  qualities, and-then read several more,  and somehow there was something in  the way the testimonials read that assured me _ they were- true. One in the  San Francisco Examiner especially impressed me, and I sent at once and  bought some of the pills. I took them  as directed, and I do'not think I need  tell you what tney have done for me.  I am quite recovered and set back in  the journey of life at least twenty years.  I have done more work since I have  taken them than for a long, long time  before. Indeed I may say since long  before you were born.  "I took only two boxes in all, but I  shall always keep them by me as long  as   I live, in case of relapse.''  (Signed)  J. M. PURVES.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in  a condensed form, all the elements  necessary to give new life and richness  to the blood and restore shattered  nerves. They are also a specific for  troubles peculiar to females, such as  suppressions, irregularities, and . all  forms of weakness. They build up the  blood and restore the glow of health to  pale and sallow cheeks. In men they  effect a radical cure in all cases arising  .from mental worry, overwork uor^ excesses of whatever nature. Pink Pills  are sold in boxes (never in loose bulk)  at 50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50,  and may be had of all druggists, or direct by mail from Dr. Williams'Medicine Company, Schenectady, N.

"The first, as you see, looks innocent  enough, and when I ask you what you  think it is you will reply���������  "A silver matchbox," answered the  reporter, as ��������� he gingerly  handled  the  beautifully chased silver object.  ���������'Touch that spring." >  At an easy touch the lid of the box  flew open on a powerfully hinged  spring and disclosed the interior, and in  a. compartment about one-half of the  capacity of cthe box were a dozen wax  matches.  "Now, you'll find .a tiny -bottom on  the side next you and near your thumb.  Just press that lightly."     ,, J    ���������  As the suggestion was followed a little, sharp-pointed, creamy white, curved object' popped into view from that  portion of the box now occupied by the  matches.  *   "What is that?* " ,.*_  "That," said Mr. Atkinson, "is no  more nor less than tlie fore fang of the  Great American rattlesnake. You will  notice' that the- fang is sharp as* a  needle at its point, that it is slit for a  distance up the middle, and that it is  hollow. You will also observe that a  fine, amber-colored, jelly-like substance  is contained within the hollow of that  fang. That is nothing less horrible  tlian the venom of the rattlesnake,1 and  tbe rankest poison, the most deadly of  agents known to man. A couple of  scrapes c_ a man's hand,or face means  a certain and a horrible death. Nausea,  and vomiting, retching, convulsions,  semi-paralysis, complete paralysis,  state of coma, death in a moet horrible  form and the swelling to horrible proportions of the corpse as it rapidly  turns black from the virulence of the  venom.  "You can readily see what a terrible  weapon it would be in the hands of an  unscrupulous villain. A scratch' or two  and the deed would -be done, while the  victim would simply imagine that he  had been scraped by a pin.  "Its companion piece, of devilish ingenuity, is a needle gun. Peculiar looking thing, is it not?" asked Mr.'Atkinson,-as' he passed a richly engraved and  silver mounted object, that looked like  a cross between a miniature double^  barreled shotgun and a revolver, to his  friend, who handled it with extreme  caution.  "That little gun is but five inches over  all, and yet it contains within those  chambers, in the box-like part, between  those fine watch spring steel barrels  and the pistol grip, enough of fiendish  mischief to lay out a dozen strong men.  "The charge is a strong and powerful  cartridge, made of a highly explosive  chemical which, by the peculiar construction of the chambers, makes so  little noise that it could not be heard  by a person ten feet away. The instrument of destruction is a bunch of fine  cambric "needles that have had their  heads flattened to offer resistance and  catch tbe propelling force, and their  points have lain in the very same sort  of venom of which I spoke until they  are thoroughly corroded with it.  "As they leave the gun they scatter  and penetrate to the most vital spots,  where their terrible work is quickly  done. Nothing short of a post-mortem  examination of the most rigid kind  would betray the cause of death."  of time. As a rule employes are seldom  retained for more, than five years, arid  length of service often is made a reason  for dismissal, it being feared that they  may acquire the idea that ,they have a  claim upon the firm. Those, then, who'  enter mercantile establishments with,  the idea that they, may rise to superior  positions usually meet with disappointment. One rarely, finds the same cash  children for two,seasons in succession.,  At the close of the holiday season from  one-third to one-half of the .employes  are discharged,, without regard to  length of service, only the, brightest  and, shrewdest being, retained.  Under the severe discipline enforced  only the strongest, can endure this life  for any length of time. Investigation  proves 'that few can stand for more  than two years' without suffering from  impaired health. The law regarding  seats has not been generally observed,  and in some' establishments where-j  seats' were provided saleswomen have  ,been fined if found sitting.  While it is gratifying to know that  women can fill these positions satisfactorily, yet, through accepting low  wages and submitting to severe discipline, they are depriving other women  of employment, and' since their entrance into mercantile establishments  the wages of salesmen have, been reduced 40 per cent. Altogether tbe position of the saleswoman is not an enviable one, and the wise young woman  will give time to~ learn a trade.���������Independent, n  NEVER FAILS TO CURE.

Rudyard Kipling gives ont this explanation of the statement in an Australian newspaper that "Rudj-ard Kipling landed on this island at 12 o'clock,  and at 12:16 o'clock he had formulated  an Australian policy :CA young reporter  cornered   me   just after I landed.    I  treated him kindly, but said firmly that  I was not to be interviewed:   'I have  not "thought' of interviewing you,'  replied  the reporter,  with a sadness in  his voice; 'I ask a much greater favor  than.that' "   It turned out that tbe reporter had an Australian policy which  he knew would be of the greatest benefit to the country.    No paper would  print it.   His modest request was that  Kipling would let him put forth  his  theory as the scheme of the novelist.  "They will print it," he said, "if I give  it as coming from you."    "All rigiht,"  agreed Kipling, "fire ahead."

Is peace worth this price?
Pnwcis in whom has rested the world's
hope of advancement hive disappointed
the hopeful.    Where we iopked   natua!!y
for   aid    in the   cause of   humanity   and
Christanity   we have   discovered   s.Irish
ness and a cold-blooded, even barbarous
disregard of the   claims of the oppressed.
And not only have the so-called Chris
ti.'tri   narions   of E ir-ipe   exhibi e !    this
indifference   to the   higher   demands of
���rlyili. itinn, but tlie great   American   Re
public has been content to sit idly by and
witness the barbarities practiced by
.inotner Christian peopje upon a handful
of struggling patriots who hive been
imng to throw off the burdensome and
cu_l yoke of centuries.
