Hygienic Con ditions are Deadly License for Wholesale Panama Mas sacre Native Has Very Sweet Tooth Black Britains Hysterical Stam pede Although there is a new flag in Panama and the affairs of state are in new hands life rolls on its accustomed way The bells in the old towers keep calling the faithful to prayer long files of venders parade the narrow streets eternally crying for sale their frugal wares buzzards soar In the hot air or hop under foot In their never ending search for offal the same horde ofquarieilhng Sinn crowd the market place to chatter to barter and to fight polite men drink in the cafes and busy themselves with political plot and counterplot and dusky senoritas lounge in cool patios dreaming the dreams that southern maidens dream The south is always the south Its Idle shiftless children play and par ley their hours away and the years bring little change for them They are as aimless as the winds that play in the palms It Is no wonder The word tropic sounds narcotic It is so easy to sit and watch the drifting clouds and fall asleep as you look It is of no use to resist You may summon all your powers of will but drowsiness touches you with Its gentle finger and you drift softly out on the sea of sleep It takes something about as excit- Ing as a revolution to keep the Inhab itants awake It is said that intrigue breeds In every cafe It really is ex citing to plot against the king and turn the rascal out It is infinitely more exciting if his majesty antici pates you and shoots you for your Impudence The last revolution has been called the bloodless insurrec tion However the margin by which it so terminated wag very nar row General Tovar commanding 500 trops and commissioned to up hold the authority of Colombia land ed in Colon He applied to the au thorities of the Panama railroad for a special train to carry his soldiers to the capital His application was po litely refused He demanded and threatened and stormed as irate gen erals will but the train was still de nied him Then General Tovar made the mis take that saved the blood of the revo lution and which lost the Isthmus for his country He wentalone to Panama to bluster and to threaten leaving his soldiers in charge of his subordi nate Colonel Torres As soon as the general arrived here he was promptly arrested When his captors searched him they found orders to shoot thir tyfive of the principal citizens and as many more as he thought needed shooting The rebels at this end wired their leaders in Colon that they had the general under lock and key and authorized them to spend any amount up to 25000 American gold to bribe Colonel Torres to clear out with his soldiers The negotiations were started with the colonel and in order to get a line on his temperature an offer of 5000 was made to him if he would evacuate He struck himself upon the breast hissed through his teeth said a lot of things about his responsibility the honor his country and all that then marched his soldiers up and down the street to show what a bad man he was The insurgent leaders approached him again to inform him that by hard skirmishing they had managed to raise 5000 more that they would pay the steamship company 2000 for the transportation of his men and give him the other 8ouo to put In his pocket They told him further that If he didnt accept their offer they would chew him up and spit him out and spend the 10000 in giving him the greatest funeral ever held In Panama This threat was rather ridiculous considering the fact that he had 600 ttl1ed men while the only force op jed to him was forty marines from Nashville and forty volvnteers The colonel said he guessed he would quit He took his bribe end made his Inglorious retreat The press dispatches at the time gave the number ot the opposing forces and there was considerable speculation throughout the United States over the withdrawal of the Colombian troops when there was so much at stake and the force so numerically able to enforce its demands I believe something was said about in ducing the officers to withdraw That 10000 was the inducement For a few days there was considerable apprehension for the safety of Americans in Colon There really was no danger so long as the rebels were rattling their gold pieces in Col onel Torres ears It will make him feel really bad when he learns that he might just as well have had 25000- If he had held out for it Of course the colonel is now a much traduced man throughout the length and breadth of Colombia but he did no more than his general would have done if the chance had been his he did no more thanthe Columbian congressman tried to do when he held up the canal treaty The gold got Into an unexpected pocket that was all CoJomMnbaalmd greet dell to Fay about the United States using force but this narration ot fact coupled with the history of the whole negotiation makes it very plain that the Itching palms of the Colombian officers and politicians Is what really lost her cause She has indeed been the victim of weakness but that weakness was her own The sweet tooth seems to flourish In a hot climate Children gnawing at pieces of sugarcane is always a fa miliar sight in tropical lands Some times they get little else to eat On a former trip to the tropics I had In my employ a little black boy by the name of Domingo who ran errands for me Necessarily I became quite familiar with the habits of my young assistant I found that aside from sleeping a great deal he was quite an eater His blouse was his larder and he kept it well stocked with eatables mostly sweets If he were disturbed while eating he would chuck the un finished morsel Inside his shirt to await a more favorable opportunity to consume it Domingos tendency toward economy was commendable- even it his idea of cleanliness was not praiseworthy There was always a noticeable bulging In his blouse and I frequently heard a rattling sound as he moved about One day I said to him Domingo what is that in your shirt which rattles so He replied Thats my Ice cream dish sir It was a well battered tin cup and after some filching he brought forth a crooked much abused metal spoon For 2 cents I get this half full of cream sir It is very good May I bring you some I did not avail myself of his generosity Domingo Is a soldier now The salary he gets for being a fighting man amounts to about 40 cents per day American money and he boards himself This is a satisfactory ar rangement to Domingo because feeding himself is an old habit He does not have to put up with whatever rations the head of the commissary department may see fit to issue He still has his battered cup and crooked spoon and he buys ice cream and cake as many times a day as the moves him His fellows dolikewise Around their camp there is a hovering swarm of venders The peddlers- of sweets have the largest trade even If confectionary does not make the brawn victors in the game of war should have A fighting man needs muscle That is why Domingo and his comrades when they were 500 against 80 in Colone that day did not care so much about fighting They looked tired and listless It suited them very well when their of ficer took his bribe and ordered them to march away It was good for them that he did for that little band of blue clad marines waiting silently and grimly beside their machine guns back of their barricade would have given a good account of themselves They come of fighting stock They eat the kind of food that fighting men should eat and have the iron in them that fighting men should have It was well for Domingo and his fellows that they were returned to the barracks where they can put in their time eating ice cream and cake The Panama railway steamer City of Washington which rendered snch valuable service during the recent trouble has been an actor in other stirrring events It was in Havana harbor when the Maine was blown up and was anchored next to that ill 4- t fated vessel The Washingtons small boats were the first to begin picking the men from the water and Its crew saved many of their lives Over a hundred women and children were kept on the Washington for two days and nights at Colon They were given their meals and the best service the ship afforded and no charges were made at all After the trouble was over this boat brought the commissioners to New York and later took the treaty to Panama to be signed When it was brought on- board Captain Jones was given a printed letter of instructions In which it was stated that his charge concerned 50000000 worth of interests The valuable document was In cased in a steel box made especially for It and this box was contained in a stronger and larger steel safe Two smaller steel boxes contained two keys which were sealed with the seal of the United States There was considerable red tape to be gone through with in delivering the treaty to the proper authorities at Colon because it was neither freight bag gage mail or express It was one of those little jobs of Uncle Sams that as the saying goes had to be done ust so An incident occurred during the bloodless insurrection which caused a stampede among the black popula tion There are thousands of negroes onthe Isthmus who were brought here from Jamaica and other islands of the West Indies to work on the Frenchcanal When that fantastic fizzle spent Itself they were left to root hog or die Most of them are English subjects and while they are a miserable povertystricken lot their one pride is that they are subjects of Great Britain It stands them well In hand because it saves them Iron being pressed into service for military duty It is to the credit of the Eng lish officials that they look after them in this respect and prevent them being imposed upon If the preten ders to authority or those who have so frequently to defend their position were alo ed to round them up and force them to carry arms they would not last long The stampede referred to waused by an accident One of the volunteers who was not used to handling firearms while In the act of examining his weapon allowed it to go off The bullet went between his toes and it was all so sudden that he thought the enemy surely had him He let out a yell and started to run Several hundred negroes who were lounging in the vicinity curiously waiting for developments heard the shot and yell and started a precipi tate rush for safety As they ran they spread the news and gathered re cruits The retreat ot Britains black brigade on that warm warm morning was not a success from a stand point of order but deserves special mention as regards speed Some ot them are probably running yet Panama has waited long to gain the center ot the stage It is as gray and worn as an old man It has seen enough sorrow to make a thous and tragedies Its green swamp is the lair of death where fever like a slinking thlaf always lurks in hid- Ing Yellow Jack is an Invisible hor ror It advances

when in a vigorous state of health with pure blood coursing through the body and there is no good reason why any one in ordinal health should have a cold It may come from insufficient exercise breathing ol foul air want of whole some food excess of food lack o1 bathing c but always from some violation of the plain laws of health There can be no more prolific caus of colds than highly sens ued foods as well as frequent eating These give no time for the digestive organs to rest and incite and Increased flow of the digestive secretions Thus larger quantities of nourishment are absorbed than can be properly uti lized and the result is an obstruction commonly called a cold which Is eXIpelspeaking it s df poisoning due to an incapability of the organism to regu late and compensate for the disturb once A deficient supply of pure air to the lungs is not only a strong pre dispos ing cause of colds but a prolific source of much graver conditions Pure air and exercise are necessary to assimilationthere can be no vigorous health The oxygen of the air we breath rag ulates the appetite as well as the nu triment that is built up in the sys tern The safest and best way to avoid colds is to sleep in a room with the windows wide open and to remain out of doors every dayno matter what may be the weather for at least two hours preferably with some kind ofexercise if not more than walking One should not sit down to rest while the feet are wtt or the clothing damp A person may go with the clothingwet through to the skin all all day if he but keeps moving Exercise keeps up the circulation and prevents taking cold The physiologic care of colds is the prevention of their occurrence The person who does not carry around an oversupply of alimentation in his sys tem and furthermore secures a purl fied circulation by strict sanitary cleanliness thus placing himself In a positive condition is immune to coldsA careful diet would exclude the use of all narcotics and nil

Corsets Physical culturists in Leeds have determined to wage war against cor setsThe lady members of the Leeds so clety of Physical Culture have already abjured the evil things and now the young men are called upon to have nothing whatever to ray to corset wrecks unless it may be to tell them of the error of their ways and advise them to seek the paths which lead to muscle development and tint ural waists The reason urged for this attitude is that corset wearing even with only moderately tight laclnp Is conducive- to enfeebled health Corset wearing say the culturlsts is evil and only evilit crushes the vltnl organs weakens digestion and destroys the lines of natural beauty setting up In their place a false Ideal as seen In the fashion plate wasp waist The appeal is made principally to

Austin Tex Jan 10 Charles Yerger who west serving n life sen ytencein the penitentiary at Cheater t 111 for robbing the malls In one of his numerous train holdups commit ted in Texas was pardoned a few days by President Roosevelt It is that Yerger is on his way back 14tago He is bent with age and of his old time acquaintances he knew him twenty years ago I he entered the doers of the pris t 4 on would recognize him now Yerger was a notorious train and stage robber He was a member of the Robbers cave gang who ter rorized this part of the State in the 4 early Sos For several years they T eluded the officers of the law and commltteed one bold robbery after an other In the Helotes hills situated I about fifty miles south of here are a number of caves where the outlaws made their rendezvous The story is t told that the big nmout of valuable plunder and money which the robbers gained in their numerous holdups was never recovered by the officers I and that it is believed to be hidden in one of the caves Yerger participated Inn terrible tragedy after his conviction The United Slates marshal for this dis tract at that time was Henry L Gos ling He was a brave officer and a popular frontiersman Goslings fearlessntss led him to be careless whet in the presence of danger It was this carelessness that caused him to lose his life After the conviction of Verger and Pitts Marshal Gosling came to Autin to convey the prisoners to San Anto nio where they were to be placed in jailor salekeeper pending their trrnsfcr to the Illinois penitentiary It He was accompanied to Austin by Deputy Marshals Manning and Long who took active charge of the prisoners when they had been placed on the train The seat occupied by Gosling was situated three seats forward of the prisoners His seat companion was H S Canfitld a former Texas ranger and at that time employed on a San Antonio newspaper He alter wards acquired considerable fame as a writer of fiction He committed sui cide in Chicago only a few weeks ago Canfield was unarmed WOMAN ASKS FOR FAVOR When the train was about to depart 4from the Austin deport Mrs Pitts wile of one of the prisoners came up to Gosling and pleaded to sit by the side of her husband She also asked that Rose Yerger a J sister of the other prisoner be grant ed a similar privilege Goslings I tender beatt was moved by the tears of the woman and he granted the fa vor Double scatfir fronting each other were made and the two desper ate men and the two women sat lacing etch other It was about 9 oclock at night when New Braumfels fifty miles d south of here was reached During the two hours ride the prisoners had been very quiet the sobs of the woo men being the only sounds that were heard from that quarter The two deputy marshals sCot three seats behind I the prisoners The train had just left the station at New Braumfels when Yerger and Pitts stealthily reached their shackled hands under the folds of the drefs sand each drew forth a sixshooter They sprang ito the aisle of the car and began firing at the three officers The first two shots of the prisoners r were aimed at Gosling The two hale lets hit the brave officer square in the back and he pitched forward on his l face into the lap of Canfield The prisoners then turnedtheir pistols on Deputies Long and Manning The latter were bothout of their eats the moment they saw the first movement of the prisoners The cylinder of Longs pistol would not work and he wad powerless to give Manning any aid although he begged the loan of a t pistol from other passengers in the car Manning however as soon as F il o el dri r I he could draw his own pistol began shooting at Yerger and Pitts as they backed towArds the door of the car Yerger and PiUs disappeared in the darkness The train was stopped and when the car had cleared of the smoke an accounting was token of the rasuallties Gosling was lying on the floor dead Rose Yerger was shot through the thigh and another wo man Mrs Drown was fatally wound ed dying the following day Depu ty Manning soon lost sconcjousncss but finally recovered nnd is still living on the Rio Grande border The next day the dead body ot Pitts was found lying in a bunch of weeds near New Braumfels He had been shot twice through the body Yerger had delivered himself from the dead man by cutting off the latters right hand at the wrist Yerger was found wandering in the hills several miles west of New Braumfels late in the evening of the same day He was demented and made no resistance when the officers called upon him to surrender The shackles were still on his hand and to it was dangling the dismembered hand of his dead partner in crime The terrible experience had caused him to lose his mind It is said that he has never fully recovered his reas on and that he

with the following statement of the Japanese view of its present contention with Russia by one who 1 in constant communication with To kin and whose knowledge of Japanese affairs and intimacy with the Japanese government give weight to his opin ionNegotiations between Russia and Japan have reached a critical stage although nn amicable adjustment is still possible Russias reply to Ja paea latest representations will decide the issue While neither gov etntnent has taken the public into its confidence it is not difficult to surmise the general tenor of the views which the Japanese government would express Something in the nature of an agreement between the two governments whereby they blind themselves to respect the independence and territorial integrity Iboth o China and Korea would naturally come first Such an agreement prob ably would include also mutual rec ognition of the special interests o Russia in Mancuria and ot Japan in Korea coupled with an agreement based on the principle ot equality o all nations as regards commercial opportunities in these counties that neither contracting party shall interfere with the commercial rights of the other acquired by treaty with China or Korea In a word it is probably a fact that Japan has asked no more of Russia than confirmation by inter national compact of declarations re peatedly and unequivocally made by RuFsia herslf regarding the unselfish nature of her motives with reference to Manchuria Russias reply evidently has been a surprise and a disappointment to Jupan It is now generally understood that Russia has refused to discuss the sit nation in Manchuria and has propos ed somethiing in the nature of a neu tial zone in Northern Korea on the Manchurian frontier extending as far as Wangeton on the east and Ping Yang on the west It is difficult to perceive how Japan could possible accept this proposal To consent to the indefinite prolongation ot Rus sias stay upon the borders lot Korea to the neutralization of nearly one third of the latters territory would be a fatal menace to the independence of Korea which Japan must defendat all costs as the safety of the penin sula which is the outpost of her line defence is Indispensable to Japans own repose and security As for Manchuria Japan conjointly with other powers is entitled to the en joyment of rights and immunities se cured by treaty with China which it would be impossible to leave to the caprice of a third power Russias recent course demonstrates the unsat isfactory nature of present conditions The reoccupaiion of Mekden and the continued occupation of Tatong Kao have undoubtedly had the effect of intimidating China and of preventing her from fulfilling her treaty obliga tions with the United States and Japan with respect to the opening of those places to the commerce of the worldSo as regards Korea it is now known that the joint oflorts of Great Britain United States and Japan to the Yalu to foreign commerce at large were on the eve of success when the Russia occupation of Yangampho blocked the plans These and simi lag events in Korea and Manchuria justify the apprehension that if aflairs are permitted to proceed uninterruptedly a large part of the shores of the Yellow sea not to mention the Interior of Manchuria will be closed to the commerce of the civilized world vital importance to Japan thaithis should not happen and it Js- claln that the final issue depends solely upon Russias willingness to recognize this fact I the Wisdom of Roosevelt he more or American people study theytoy j + Jtter they love him He t promoters is the surest index of his wisdom The further fact that he is not liked by some of the more redi cal labor leadlrs is a guarantee that there is nothing of the demagogue in him

Speed Likely to Result in Horrible- Disasters Contingencies May Arise Which Cannot Possibly be Guarded 4 Against Signals are Umcertaln It may be agreeable to some tray elers to speed along a railway at the breathtaking rate of two miles a minute the velocity attained at are cent trial on a German railway but it can hardly be considered safe un der present conditions German en ginecrs are spending large amounts of time and money on experiments whose aim is the production of an electric or steam locomotive which can run 100 miles an hour Accord Ing to a cable dispatch they succeeded a few weeks ago for the first time in reaching 100 miles an hour speed but the question which naturally sug gents itself to railway engineers in the United States is Who wants to travel at such speed Side by side with a speed record of this German experiment he would set the discus sion which took place on the location of distance signals at the recent meet ing of the Railway Signaling Club The signal engineer of a leading rail road there stated that be bpd not been able to work satisfactorily a mechani cal signal with a greater length of wire than 2000 feet It is well known that it trains are to be run with safety under the block signal system the spacing of the disproportioned to the speed of the fastest trains The distant sig nal tells the engine runner that the home signal stands at danger and that he must stop his train before reaching it and the faster the train is running the farther back must this information be given him With present train speeds it is not uncom mon to place the distant signal 2500 feet back of the home and if this ls the proper distance for a sixtymile anhour train then for 100 miles an hour the distant signal ought to be placed at least 7 500 feet backJ clog But trains are run a large share of the time when the signals cannot be made out at 1000 feet or anything like the distance They are often run when a semaphore cannot be claarly seen till one is within say 200 feet Under such conditions the engine runner would have just one and a half seconds to decide whether his train was dashing on to safety or distructionNumerous other conisderatlons might be cited to show that whether II it be practiceable or not to attain 100 miles an hour in a burst of speed it fie not practiceable on railways carry ing a general tariff to run trains at speeds in excesss of the highest now attainedIf are to be run 100 miles an hour then it must be on tracks blllt for them alone from which all other traffic it excluded Numerous at tempts have been made to show that such R railway would be a paying en terprile but the capalists have never been convinced The mere fact that the Germans have attained 100 miles an hour on their experimental road therefore proves nothing as to the practlciblllty of adopting such speed Kentuckys Illiterate Voters The Democrats ol the Kentucky Legislature have introduced a bill to disqualify every man from voting who cannot read and write unless his ancestors were legal voters ptior to 1867 This an attempt to enact in Kentucky a law to disfranchise illiter ate negroes and to protect under the grandfathers clause illiterate white The Keutucky Legislature is strongly Democratic and if the Dem ociats holds together the bill to dis franchise the negro votes will become n law But on such a question are the Democratic members likely to hold together There are goose reas ons why they should not and they probably will not I In 19 Kentucky had 202954 illit erates over ten years of age Of these 88137 were negro descent In ten years the illltetaters among the ne groes decreased from 120507 to 88137 Ol the negroes in Kentucky from ten to fourteen years of ae 11405I were illiterates in 1 nr only 4 t- e r

Pierce Buffalo N Y Illiterates in 190 Of the negroes between fifteen and nineteen yeurs ol age 10785 were itlitrates In 1893 and only 5 989 in 1900 This shows that the great Majority of young ne groes in Kentucky cannot be disfran chase by the proposed law They are already qualified for the franchise As to the older negroes classed as illiterates th enactment of the pro dosed law would stimulate them as a similar law did the negroes of Alabama to read nnd write On the illiterate whites however the propoed law wonll have no stimulating effect The logical outcome of the con templated legislation therefore would be thu disappearance of illiter acyamong the poorer negroes and its continuance among the poorer whites The law aimed at illiteracy would not disfranchise a large number ofnegroes for any considerable time with the grandfathers chuse would not be of educational benefit to ignorant white votersDemocrat looking to the improve ment of the electorate and to the fu ture of Kentucky are not likely to mike a strenuous fight for such a measure Pointed Paragraphs Silent men seldom contradict themselves Many a girl shatters her ideal when she marries him Two often ceases to

one the founders of Port land and the man who named the city has in possession the copper cent with which his father won the right to select the name He is a commercial traveler for a San Fran cisco house and naturally sets great store by this cent which he has shown to many here on his visits to this city Some of his friends have besought him to turn this cent over to the Oregon Historical Society to be preserved but he has not been able to make up his mind to do this George H Hines secretary of the society has been advised to wrestle with Mr Pettygrove and it is not unlikely that he may succeed in securing this historical coin Mr Pettygrove has also in his possession the bible used on the occasion of the first sermon ever preached in Portland which with the cent was presented to him i h i1i1tne as aiaipsiiYt It was in the summer of 1845 that A L Lovejoy end F W Pettygrove who owned the claim on which Port land was located employed Thos A Brown to survey their property and lay it off into streets blocks and lots and when he bai completed the plan the proprietors undertook to choose a name for the newly horn city Mr Lovrjoy desired that it be called Bos ton in honor of the capital of his na tive state Mr Pettygrove contended that Portland was more appropriate as it was at the head of navination and the port where would land all the freight intended for the Villiamette valley and all the fouthern pioduct of the territory In order to decide the question it was decided by Mr Pettygrove to Mss a copper cent which he had brought with him as n souvenir of this eastern home This was agreed to by Mr Lovejoy The cent was tossed and Mr Pettygrove proving the winner Portland was adopted as the name of the embryo cityPortland Oregonian Charles Lamb Grace On one occasion when Edmund Clar ence Stedman was visiting In New England he vrna called upou by tho head of the house while at dinner to invoke the divine blessing I was rather surprised and for half a minute sorely tempted snld Mr Stedman In relating the incident Then I rose to the occasion and asked a grace which I remembered But Mr Stedman demanded a young woman of the party eagerly to what were you sorely tempted To do as Charles Lamb did under similar circumstances And that was He looked about the board and asked in surprise Is there no clergyman present The host shoot his bead Then Lamb prayed For

still the lover though married for ten twenty or for thirty years or more where the wifes first thought whatever ques tion arises is always What will John say and think and where the chief point of interest in any and everything is how it will appear from the other point of view Such unity of interest cannot fan to be apparent nor the fact that although they may make no to do about it and are suffi ciently agreeable to outsiders they still prefer each others society and are not in thleast bored when they are forced to spend the evening together alone Next to the married people who are lovers they are happiest who are thoroughly good friends The great er includes the less so that genuine lovers are always friends Just as friendship often ripens into love so also while passionate love rarely cools oil in friendship the true bus band or wife is always the others truest and best friend True friend ship makes a quietly happy marriage because friends make each others interest their own They have similar tases and thatcongenuality of dispo sition and pursuits which go far to make up compatibility in marriage The society of a sympathetic friend is always pleasant and there is a tonic stimulation in it which keeps ones feelings fresh and quickens ones am bitions and aspirations Even if a husband and wife have not been friends in the truest sense of the word before marriage it is a duty andought to be a pleasure to become ao afterwards an end which may be easily achieved if each is steadfastly purposed to do his or her part in the matterFriendship must give and take it must bew frte horn petty j olously from querulous vanity fromiault finding It must not b exacting nor selfish taking all it can get and giv ing as little as possible in return It must be firmly based upon mutual respect and confidence and each friend must be zealous for and careful of the dignity and honor of the other Much of the happiness and alas much of the misery of married life come from the fact that sensitive wo men are apt to hold themselves per sonally respontible for the words and acts ot the men whom they love and rejoice or suffer accordingly When friendship and love unite each strengthening and sustaining the other there is the ideal marriage as the Creator instituted it when he made the first woman as a helpmeet ior the first man not the modern partnership where

Is to be Enforced Here after Chicago Jan ItOwing to the epidemic of train wrecks the majors= ty of which may be attributed to excessive speed the management of Chicago lines are seeking to enforce the rule in their operating books which declares that speed must at al times be sacrificed to safety The rule has been in nearly ell operating books for several years but it is said to have been practically a dead letter for some time Now the gen eral managers are calling the atten tidn of their engineers to the rule and insisting that it be kept constantly in mind Whether warranted or not the feeling has pervaded the ranks of railroad engineers that lost time must be made up at all hazards to avoid censure by the management At any rate it is said to be a recognized fact that many engineers of fast trains take desperate chances when behind time and run at a recklts rate of speedalthough positively forbidden by the rules to do so One general manager said There is generil misapprehension by the public that railroad managements urge their engineers to make schedule time regardless of conditions The contrary is true and our constant effort is to make the men sacrifice speed to safety Night Was Her Terror I would cough nearly allnight long writes Mrs Chas Applegate or Alexandrie Ind and could hardly get any sleep I had con sumption so bad that if I walked a block I

Cincin nati Woman Cincinnati Jan IIA remarkable story of reversion to irresponsibility and the taking up of a life exactly as he he had left it years ago before seclusion in an Insane asylum was revealed In the police court when Dud ley H Arnett an attorney from Hen dricks Ky was put on trial on the charge ot securing goods by Issuing false checks Arnett left a trail of bad check throughout the city He caught a half dozen merchants for small sums and was then arrested by Detective Grim When the case of Arnett was called Attorney Franks stated that of the checks had been mate goo and then offered the following strange explanation to Prosecutor Holmes and Judge Lueders of the cause that led to the mans actions Mr Arnett is on leave of absenc from the Lexington Insane Asylum said Attorney Franks He had hen confined there for some time up to December 15 when he was allowed- to leave for a visit to his home When he was sent to the institution Mr Arnett possessed a substantial ac count in the First National Bank oi Winchester Ky He supposed upon his release that he still owened the account and isssued checks against it although the courts had disposed o it The prisoner we can prove I be lieve to be irresponsible and after confinement for some time he simply took up life as he had left it when at liberty Dndley Arnett was married in Cin cinnati a week ago to the former wife of a consln also named Arnett The wife was presented in court She stated that she knewof her husbands seclusion but supposed from his statement that he had been discharged again in good health He will

about whom little is known He is supposed to have flourishedabout the tenth century be fore Christ His birth place is not known though after his death when his fame had spread over the earth seven cities which in his lifetime had refused him bread disputed for the honor of his birth So little did even the sages of Athens value his genius that his very name has been lost to us yet his countrymen

with such dazzling beauty now at early dawn is second in distance from the sun and third in size reckoning from the smallest in our plan tary system This the most beautiful of planets is an orb 7800 miles In diameter or nearly that of the earth revolving around the sun in a period of two hundred and twenty four days and at a distance from him of 65000000 miles Her day is about thirtyfive minutes shorter than ours Owing to the small inclination of herI axis to the plane of her orbit the extremes of the seasons would be unbearable to the Inhabitants of theI earth yet one can hardly conclude
