NinetyEight Per Cent of the Mater ials Purchased Were Shipped From the United States The Testimony Taken By the Senate Committee on Appropriations in Relation To the Emergency- Bill Made Public Washington Dec 4In making public all of the testimony taken by the senate committee on appropria tions in relation to the Panama canal emergency bill the senate his disclosed in greater detail the work on the Isthmus than has been given by ail of the reports of the Isthmian canal com mission officers or others authorized to discuss canal affairs The testi mony taken during the meeting covers 88 printed pages devoted almost whol ly to examinations of Secretary of Var Taft Theodore P Shonts chairman of the commission J B Bishop secre tary and D W Ross general purchas ing officer It developed during the testimony of Secretary Taft and Mr Ross that iS per cent of the materials purchased by the commission were shipped from the United States and of the two per cent of foreign materials nearly the entire amount was secured on the Isthmus- It was stated that there are about 17000 men employed on the Isthmus in canal work but that none of these are now engaged in excavating The work of digging the canal was stop ped whenulr Stevens went to the Isthmus in July last as chief engineer Mr Taft said that 4000 of the men were employed in the sanitation de partment and 13000 in track work construction of buildings in machine works and putting together the equip meat in getting ready for the work ot excaxating- Continuing Mr Taft said Mr Stevens statedand I think Mr Shonts agrees with himthat former Engineer Wallace made a mistake inI expending what he did expend for actual excavation work in the Culebra cut It was not done for the purpose of excavation although it did accom plish to the extent to which there was excavation work which may not have to be done again But it was done for the purpose of making estimates as to the cost and Mr Stevens thinks that the material which was removed was deposited at places from which it will have to bo again removed and that estimates based upon those experiences therefore are estimates based upon what do not assimilate to the actual work to be done uSo that it really was not good sample work asked Senator Hale No sir replied Mr Taft Of course the great problem there is not excavation The great problem is transportation and the disposition of the waste Dirt taken from Culebra cut has to be hauled by rail from four to fifteen miles It was stated by Mr Shonts that un der lIr Wallaces direction dirt was removed during the dry season at a cost of 43 cents per cubic yard but that the cost was increased to 150 a yard during the wet season Mr Shonts said There would not have been so much difference if Mr Wallace had properly ballasted his tracks so that when the wet season came on his cars would not get off the tracks so much Even those big steam shovels turned over so he had all that to contend with by reason of the fail ure to start right to have his tracks laid properly and ballasted properly so that they could resist the torrential rains That added very greatly I think to the enormous increase of his cost after the wet season did come on for tihe per cent of the efficiency of his plant was then reduced to 25 per cent and sometimes less APARTMENT HOUSE FIRE A Mother and Five Children Burned To Death in New York

EXECUTED Mrs Mary Mabel Rogers Paid the Penalty For the Murder ot Her Husband WENT TO THE GALLOWS BRAVELY To All Appearance the Woman Was the Calmest Person in the heath Chamber Her Neck Was Broken at the Second Cervical Vertebra and She Lost Consciousness Instantly the Drop Fell Windsor Vt Dec 9 Without a tremor and without a word Mrs Mary Mabel Rogers marched to her death on the gallows at the state prison here and paid the penalty of murdering her husband Marcus Rogers at Benning ton on August 13 1902 T o all appearances Mrs Rogers was the calmest person in the chamber of death She faced her end with the same stoical indifference that had marked her demeanor ever since her arrest more than three years ago Greatly to the relief of those offi cials who were assisting in executing the sentence Mary Rogers last hour was remarkably free from harrowing incidents It had been feared that the womans wonderful nerve would de sert her at the final moment and that she would be carried to the scaffold in a state of collapse Instead how ever Mrs Rogers met death bravely Although the woman was not officially pronounced dead until 14 min utes and 30 seconds after the trap was sprung she evidently suffered no pain Tier neck was broken at the second cervical vertebra and she lost con sciousness instantly the drop fell A few feeble convulsive movements of her pinioned hands were the only evi dences that vitality had survived the first shock- The drop fell at 113 p m and Mrs Rogers was pronounced dead by the attendant physician at 1271 The womans feet barely touched the floor for an instant but the deputies on the platform of the scaffold immediately tightened the rope and raised the un conscious form a couple of inches Topeka Kan Dec 1r would resign my position however high

more money this year than ever before All Louisville citizens are proud of the citys school system and Mayor Baath is interested in it He wants to see it improve and grow and the weight of his influ

maintaining the kindergarden schools Last year the feature of the shool work was neglected but this year the kindergardens will receive between 3000 and 4000 more than previously and this amount will

them in his pockets in the hopes that some day he can trade them off for some odd trifles which another boy has accumulated is not possessed with a mind that is prone to evil He is too much of a boy to do harm of any kind de liberately He might empty a poor box to be sure not because he meant to steal but rather out of curiosity and in the hope of adding to his collection The chain of the poor box would be prized by him more highly than its contents assuming that it had any contents The justice of the peace ex pressed wonder that a boy could carry so many small things in his pocket He is not the first to be AIput anything and everything that his pocket can by any possibility be act cordance with a wellknown law ofnature j Better Late Than Never it would of course be best for you to be

being made from the milk of the cocoanut This milk when subjected to a tempera ture of over 28 C runs into a yellow oil which is imported in great quan tities from India and Africa The bet ter qualities of it are obtained from Ceylon CochinChina and Australia The nut produces 60 per cent of oil and one acre of land planted with co- coanut trees would produce over 400 pounds of oil This has hitherto been used for fats for soap or for machin ery oil and the better qualities em ployed in the manufacture of textile goodsIn France this oil is now subjected to a special treatment and converted into butter Dr Heuner a German chemist proposes to buy up all the cocoanut oils and transform them into what he terms vegetable butter The cocoanut butter like that made from cows milk contains seven percent of soluble acids It will keep from 16 to 20 days without showing any sign of acid reaction and it con tains from 25 to 30 times less waterI than ordinary butter while its slow ness in oxidizing makes it specially suitable for pastry and cakes as they will not get stale so quickly when made with it as with other Another advantage butterIQcoanut butter is that it an antiseptic medium while milk is most favorable to the culture of mi- CKJbes At the central hospital of Vienna and in various hospitals in Switzerland experiments have been made with this new butter and the results have been pronounced satisfactory THE GERMAN DRESSMAKER- The Thing That Greatly Surprised Her When She Learned Her Employers Calling A young woman author hired a German dressmaker to recentIrI work for her The German the apartment daily and after a con sultation or a fitting the writer would leave to go about her own business I could see that she was trying to place me said the author in telling the story When she first came and saw so many pictures and sketches about the house she asked me if I could paint and I replied in the negative Then she looked around for a piano and seeing none asked if I could sing Again I told her no and of course it was quite evident that I knew nothing about dressmaking- On her last day I decided to end her suspense so after a little friendly conversation informed her in vague but impressive terms that I wrote mentioning one or two things that she recognized Her honest German face was raised in wonder to mine You dont say now You do all dot But I always thought it took a lot of brains N Y Sun- Ultramicroscopy By this is meant the rendering visi ble either directly to the eye or through the aid of photography of objects or particles too mimute to be seen with the highest powers of the microscope as it is now constructed Prof Cleveland Abbe suggests that by staining preparations with uuorescent substances and then illuminating them with ultraviolet light smaller particles han can possibly be seenwIth ordi nary white or colored light may be brought into prominence The human retina is insensible to ultraviolet light but fluorescence converts the short waves into longer ones capable of af fecting the retina The same principle applies to photographic visibility and Prof Abbe thinks that the ultimate limit of such visibility will be of the same dimension as that of the larger molecules of matter Special lenses will need to be ground for this kind of work Youths Companion English Competition Tie coal mine owners in the south of Austria have been obliged to reduce the price of coal because English ships on their way to the Black sea for corn have taken British coal from Cardiff to Trieste at the rate of one dollar a ton whereas the usual rate is between 189 and two dollars and has even been as much as 375 The price of British coal is so low that unless Austrian mine owners reduce their prices British

be ing too unselfish The duty of unselfishnes i preached so much that one is apt to look upon it as a great virtue and it doubtless is but it is apt to become troublesome to others if one carries it to an extreme Take Mother Eve for instance It was her unselfishness as much as her weakness that brought soI much trouble on womenfolk- If she had only been selfish and eaten all the apple that the Serpent induced her to take Adam would have taken his ow apple and then he couldnt have blamed Eve for his weakness But Eve was inexperienced as well as unselfish and women have ever since been feeling the consequences of her act There is much talk of advanc ing civilization and each century- is supposed to bring forth many new ideas but after all man in many ways is just about where Adam left him He is still blaming Eve for his shortcomingsJust because she is goin in for business and trying to sup port herself he says that she is breaking up the home and her new independence is responsible for all sorts of conjugal infelici tiesHe even says that before wom en went in for business they lov ed to bake and sweep for thei husbands It was their one idea ofParadiseSome most eloquent of our male friends give as reasons for more women not marrying FirstThat they think more of having a career than a home SecondThat a typewriter is more attractive than a mere man ThirdThat women once having tasted the sweets of busi ness will never be satisfied with the bread and butter of married life But it has been Iny experience that the woman who cares more for a career than a home is the exception and not the rule That the woman who finds a typewriter more attractive than a man is a still rarer exception and that the woman who prefers business life to married life is the rarest exceptionalmost unheard of There areof course many women working in offices This doesnt necessarily mean that they dont want to marry A woman may not walk into the office in the morning andsay to her employer I want to mar ry Will you help me find a hus bandBut that is no reason for deciding that she has determined not to marry She may be thinking all the time about John or Louis and wondering how long itwill be before he has saved enough to ask her to be his Of course everything depends upon ones point of view but it certainly looks to me as though the people who were afraid that women were outgrowing their love of home and that business and not marriages was the Mecca toward which they were aiming are people afraid of shadows And one who had seen women withmen or heard them talkin about men wouldnt worry about marriage growing unpopular Let them look at the good side of the situation which is that there is no greater aid to virtu ous and happy life than a congen ial occupation If a woman has a congenial oc cupation she may be less anxious to marry than her sister who has nothing to do She may not marry as young women formerly did And she will doubtless require more of the man she mar riesBut these surely are points in favor r of greater independence gof women Her independencer gives her larger interests wider sympa thies more disciplined judgment and instead of being a hindrance swill be the greatest help in the many vicissitudes of married life Sentecne Sermons Tact is touching with love Weeds are a call to work The immovable hearts move the world The blue heart always has a black sky The empty faith is usually brassn madeI One does not wed with trut by flirting with doubt The devil is always willing to play dead in a war of words He is blessed with fortune who has learned to bear misfortune The losses of truth are more profitable than the gains of trick ery A man who is honest for policy will be dishonest for promotion A loving heart is like a Sum adgveiriL se You can not look constantly at dirt and keep your windows free from dust- Nowhere does money create a- more disappointing miriage than in a moral desert withra keen ear for our prayers and dull eye for our practices The man who feels heisthrovI ing away money every time he puts a dime into the offering is probably right in his own case Many a fly is ready to die in the pan if his epitaph shall read He lived in the creamy Its no sign that you will get along with the angels because none can get along with you here If you are the salt of the earth you must not complain if you get
