whichoccurred at her home in Hickman yesterday morning st 4 oclock Mrs Cowgill had been suffering from heart trouble for some time but her friends here were surprised to hear of her death so soon The deceased was a devoted member of the Episco church and had been organist at the church the greater portion of her life up to the last year or two when her health began to fail She was the wife of John W Oowgill of Oowgill d Sons Drug company mother of Henry Cowgill and Mrs Alice Helm She was a woman beloved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed in many ways She has a number of friends in

to regulate railroad freight rates and will not do as President Roosevelt recommended in his message i A majority of the republicans in the house all the democratsv and practically all the people ire with Mr Roosevelt but there stands the senate and the million aires trust magnates and railroad kings in there will see to it that the presidents views are not cried t r out at this session at least That Mr Roosevelts move Rfis UIonesr made by a president is evidenced by the free expressions of rep b beans and democrats alike who have come here from all parts of the country to tell him that he is right and that he should go ahead The democrats are stand ing by the executive but he is powerless for the present The situation only solves to show more clearly the decline in the power ofthe house of repre sentatives and the concentration of power in the senate The house can pass all the leg islation it pleases but two or three men in the senate can snap their fingers at the proceedings enacted by 880 men and block tHe legislation until doomsday It is so in this instance and before the present agitation sub jtstheythat the real power in the affairs of this government is with such men as Nelson W Aldrich W Bi Allison and others forming a small but allpowerful coterie of republican senators Some weeks ago the newspapers ofi Washington reporter slid it was a common rumor ton the streets that it was not believed there would be any railroad legis lation atthis session because Senator Aldrich had virtually said he had planned for a trip toi Europe with his family It was also said that Mr Aldrichbddo pjinformedwas given as a reason why there would not be any railrord legis lation and furthermore there would be no extra session to re vise the tariff as Mr Aldrich expected to be gone two or three monthsThese statements either meant that this legislation could be en acted by Senator Aldrich or that it was a certainty that if there were any possibility of this legis lation he would be on this side Louisville Times AGOXIZIMl BURKS are instantly relieved and perfectly healed by Bncklens Arnica Salve C Rivenbark Jr of Norfork Va writes I burnt my knep dreadfully that it blistered

instinct to adapt Itself to new conditions came to my notice this morning ia a glass case are kept a couple of blind worms which aro fed regularly upon slugs and sometimes it ia no U1 matter i to find slugs for them so cleverly do these hide in dark damp creVIces Yet tho cleverness Is merely the adaptation of habit to circumstances and when the circumstances change it may become the veriest roUyi says Country Life For the slugs have no idea that they are hiding from enemies when they get into dark i damp crevices The habit of seeking such places has been stereotyped on their minds because it Iby that moans that their ancestors escaped from their enemies of the past Last night however it happened that the only damp thing in tire case was a slice of turnip put in for food for the slugs which was standing upright and this morning all tho slugs in the case were collected together on the shady side of the slice in full view of the bllndworms as they came out to breakfastIf was any glimmoringof reason in the apparent cleverness with which they ordinarily hide they would of course have sneaked away from the turnip under cover of the darkness and hidden themselves undor the stones as usualThe same miscarriage of nn instinct which seems very clever in its ordi nary operation may been seen in the conduct of the moths which are beau tifully mottled and tinted with grays and browns to mimic the coloring ofi the rocks or treo trunks upon which they rest in the state of nature When these have como into a lighted room overnight and have been shut In they may be seen next morning taking cover on the wall paper or the white ceiling where they are as conspicuous as a cockroach on a tablecloth The same rule runs through all na ture The white pheasant crouches among the tawny leaves for the same reason as his tawny comrades because his ancestors have done so and survived to transmit thoir instinct to him That in his case the trick falls is the reason why our pheasants are not white but tho others have no idea that the brown leaves help to hide them They would behave in the same way whatever color they or the leaves might becomo tomorrow Only if the change were permanent nature ia the shape of birds and beasts of preywould see to it that the pheasants became again the color of the leaves with as little delay as possi ble HIGH SPEED TISTS Record UrenUInKlTAchlc venient ol Gernn Rlectriolnn o llecent Date An elaborate series of experiments was undertaken in Germany under the auspices of the emperor over two years ago to solve several problems connected with electric traction Al though these were tried on a short bit of road reaching from Marienfeide to Zossen and about 14 miles long they have an Important bearing on the sub stitution of electricity for steam for trunk line service reports the New York Tribune In the earlier tests a speed of nearly 100 miles an hour was reached It was then discovered that the rails were not heavy enough A long inter ruptlon ensued to admit of recon structing the track and to make other preparations for getting valuable in formation Shortly after the reaQmp tion of these experiments less than a month ago the cable dispatches reported successive speeds of 106 114 117 and finally 126 miles an hour TOr practically the whole length of the roadThe car used in the recent perform ances is probably identical with the one first tried although some of the proposed work will be done with an independent electric locomotive recently built especlaly to aid this Investigation The line has been equipped with the three phase syFtem and has three overhead wires one above another Apparatus for taking off the current rises from each end of the car and presses sideways against the wires The car itself is exceptionally stout and strong since it has to carry not only four heavy motors underneath two on each truck but also an enormous burden peculiar to these tests and not found on other electric cars The coach is 72 feet in length The interior is divided into three compartments with cross seats ac commodating 60 passengers The mid dle room is 25 feet long and the others have only half that length A vestibule at each end accommodates the motor man and a part of the equlpmont and takes oft fully six feet from the avail able length of tho coach Tragedy Averted I hear said Hi Tragedy that while

EuJJlle of the Neglect of Which Mothers Are Sometimes Guilty A woman who lives alone in a coun try plate retti tly applied to aNew York philanthropic assoctatlon for a young girl to serve as a helper and companion One was soon furnished a browneyed straighthaired child of 15 or more slender and illdeveloped for her age but bright of face and gentle of voice Her mother had evidently neglected her home and her work and consequently her small daughter so that the girl was poorly nourished and shabbily clad The New York Tribune tells ef her experl ences in what was to be her summer home i The mistress of the house bad occa sion to send the girl on one or two er monoIiaccomplishediwith accuracy and judgment But when dishwashing tinei arrived four hours were consumed in getting some 20 or 30 pieces put away in the china closet To begin with Emmeline as tfio girl was called was discovered with the dishpan n the floor while she herself stood beside it bending over from the hips to reach the

Did you never help your mouser about the house Emmeline her mistress i asked her oneday when she was particularly awkward in performing some simple work Xom was the answer She says shed rather do a

Iiiiprenslon At the recent celebrations of Lucy Stones birthday almost every speaker who had known that gifted woman hid something to say about the charm of her voice says Youths Companion So sweet wasit that in the words of Miss Anthony men used to say th1t they couldnt help voting for woman suffrage if she asked them to do so Her name was always nut last upon the programme or a public meeting because she left such a pleasant impression upon an audience The current literature of Great Brit- aIn is full of slighting allusions to the voices of American women They are justified in a number of cases alas far too large nub an American woman voice need not be loud and shrill Nothing in her constitution nothing in the climate requires it so to be It is true that weak utterance or a cracked

latter which ISsued from its crater has overflowed into the sea The summit of Mauna Loa is a plain about five and a half miles long ands four miles broad There Is a pit measuring about two by three

shaken and tossed by the winddriven waves freezing constantly When it reaches here it is in large masses many of which appear to cover acres and to be several feet in thickness Many times we wonder how such masses can pass continually and not form a gorge at every anile and turn of Jjlie river Floating ice has covered the surface of the river here for several days and the ice frozen to the shores has gradually ex fended toward the center of the stream until Friday morning at 10 oclock the way became blocked The powerful river hind on too great a load and in the bend just above the city nature made a bridge f The ice comes down with a cracking grating sound and forced by the current against the obstruction doubles buck upon itself and carried under the mass aheadrises in its buoyancy and lifts the masses higher and higher until iii some places the ice seems to be twenty feet above water Occasionally a great noise is heard as some of the large masses hive wayto the pressure and breaking up into smaller pieces piles up together ever increasing the obstruction and strengthening the tie that hoids back the descending flotes The chance to cross the river at Hickman afoot comes not often Is it dangerous Perhaps Is it hazardous Not much The gorge is certain to stay for several days The masses of ice are pressed close together and until a rise in the river or a thaw cannot get away The chance of a wet ting in the cold water is the only apprehension and if care is taken there is 110 danger of that Only the careful should venture- to cross OD this natural bridge The last gorge at Hickman was in 1898 and for several days it was the only facility for crossing at this place Report has it that a citizen of Missouri crossed the river on that gorge on three successive Saturdays to lay in his weekly supplies Quite a num ber of residents here visited Missouri at the time among whom were J T Malone and A A Farris Jr It is also reported that a timaabout twelve miles below here at the foot of Islane No8 and lasted several days and that several citizens of that locality crosse on it to the opposite shore Ice gorges rarely form in the river as low dowu as this point t he floes come from the Ohio andl upper Mississippi rivers and thi increased size of the stream be low Cairo gives greater room fo their passage Then ice is rarely ever seen coming out of tho Ohio and Mississippi rivers past Cairo at the same time Floating is- is e frequently seen in the river at Mempis Penn and has been re ported at New Orleans but the date is not now ascertainedo d s I

Spirit within her shone forth in her bright smile her gentle ways her unselfishness her loving words Those of her family who were privileged to minister unto her were themselves ministered unto Their own faith Was strengthened by beholding hers Her devotion to the church was the outgrowth of a deep religious faith Such do not die We shall meet them again and know them when we meet holding again the old and dear communion of earthamid the joys of Paradise But it is diflicult to sum up in words all that was lovely and of good re port in the life of this noble wo manso quick to respond to every

Avenues of Com merclal Vaefalncna A now application of electricity and one which is interesting from its very ariginallty is seon in a process for de tectlng and determining the dilution of wine with water writes Honry Harrison Suplee in the Forum It fa- a well known trick of the trade to add to certain wines as much water as they will stand and the difficulty of proving the adulteration with the coat of the necessary chemical analysis toi determine the percentage of water which has been added renders this trade deception a difficult matter for the authorities to handle In a recoil communication to the French academy M Maneuvrier describes a meth od of measuring the extent of adulter ation by the electrical conductivity or rather by the resistance Experiments have shown that the resistance of fered by a given wine in its natural state to the passage of an electrical current is very nearly constant while this resistance is very greatly In creased by the addition of water It Is therefqre only necessary to com pare the electrical resistance of a sus pected sample with one of known pur ity to determine the question at once By comparing a number of specimens to which known percentages of water have been added it is possible to con struct a curve of resistance which will make possible an immediate quantita tive determination of the amount of water which has been added From the testing of the purity of wines to the destruction of the germs of disease is somewhat of a leap in considering the work of the engineer but it serves only to show the increasing scope of that work The use of steam to sterilize infected clothing and materials has been tried repeatedly and usually success has attended the toas tures about the use of steam for this purpose which until recently have been but imperfectly understood Assum sterilizingeeffect of steam was due to the heat it1 has been supposed that the greater heat carried by the superheated Damthe thisfpurpose than saturated steam such as is supplied byan ordinary steam boiler Experience however has shown that the best results are attained when the steam is slightly moist and that superheated steam in spite of its high er temperature is not so effective The recent experiments made at the government institute at Hamburg have shown that the saturated steam penetrates more thoroughly into the pores and interstices of the fabrics to be treated than is possible either wit highly heated drralror with super heated steam i appars that theo asesisted by the partial condensation of the first portion which enters the in terstices of the materials this aiding In the removal of the entrapped air and permitting the subsequent flow of steam to come into intimate contact with every portion of the infected ar tides It has been fully demonstrated that such articles as bedding blan kets hoary clothing and the like maybe completely sterilized and disinfect sted by exposure in a closed chamber to a current of saturated steam for a period of about 30 minutes Various convenient forms of sterilizing chambers have been designed for conduct ing the operations rapidly and affec lively on a large scale and the im portance of the subject is loading gov ernments and bodies having control of large numbers of men to consider this as an Important detail in the work of the sanitary engineer alSERIOUS MISTAKE Put

is being used where green was used last year tooIis used for the lapels says the Brooklyn Eagle The inoffensive turnedover lapel and the little plain round cuff is one of the features of the new gown and is teen over and over again Though not novel nor striking it is again the vogue The very newest tailormade cuff Is a little turnover of red velvet trimmed with very narrow black braid The tnrnorei collar and the lapels exactly match This la the tailored vogue of the season But there are others One is the very wide flare cuff which Is so fashionable This is the cuff that is nearly a quartet of a

There Is another way of treating thf flaring cuff Let it flare as wide as itt will And in the inside stitch a verj deep ruffle of lace Let it be at least twc fingers wide It must fall out of thf sleeve and down over the knuckles This lace which should be of the heavy per suasion can be taken out and laundered It must hang far below the sleeve and ID some cases it comes almost to the fingei

railroad companies each year by detailing men to look after and care for their scrap the pieces of iron and steel that fall off moving cars that come from abandoned machinery or from broken pieces of equipment says the New York Sun Almost all of the big transportation companies in the United States main tain what they call scrap departments At two or three points on the road gen erally where there are any construction a or extensive repair shops this scrap Is gathered from all parts of the system One of the duties of the track walkers and repair gangs Is to pick up and throw In little heaps along the track all bits of iron and steel that may be fdund along the right of way or that may be left whenever any piece of work is com pleted At Irregular Intervals a scrap train is sent over the road for the pur pose of gathering up these odds and ends They are taken to the gathering point and there carefully sorted Some ingenious mechanics have devised machinery to separate and handle these scraps After being run through a sort of hopper that divides the small and the large from the other different sizes men are put to work to pick out from the various heaps what may again ue utilized Bolts nuts bars couplings and the like which may be used again are laid aside later to be turned again or worked over for further use The refuse amounting to thousands of pounds is shipped to some

years ago from Indigo It crystallzes in brilliant yellow scales and it dyes all animal tissues an intensely brilliant yellow It was used many years In the arts as a dyeing agent before Its true character as an explosive was known Picric acid Is indeed a very peculiar substance Although one of the most violent explosives known it is one of the safest If thrown Into a white hot fur nace it burns away like pitch It set on fire In the open air it burns with a yellow smoky flame It cannot be exploded in the open air but if confined in a strong receptacle and ignited by a strong fulminating

of the Sisht There is no city In the world that has so many drunken women in pro portion to its size as Glasgow As a breeding place for female topers neith er London Paris nor New York can compare with the Scotch town which prides itself on the progress it has made in almost every kind of munici pal reform- It is no exaggeration says a special correspondence of the St Louis Globe Democrat to say that an American walking in the evening through Glas gows poorer quarterthrough Salt Market street Bridge Gate or High streetsoon begins to ask himself if there can be any sober women in that part of the city Here in the course of an hour one may see nearly a thousand women pass in various stages of intoxication nearly all of them look- Ing either for a saloon or a pawnshop which by the way are usually close togetherWhen once a woman begins to drink nere she is done for is a quotation tfn this Scotch city and one believes it true after an evening in the slums Old grayheaded women with weak dissipated faces and torn rags for scanty covering reel through the streets begging coppers with which to buy more drinks Young men them solves the worse for liquorexclaim Give the barefooted old grannies a penny we hope well never come to that The middleaged topers are the coarsest of all their hair matted in tawny snarls dresses halffastened and their speech too foul for repetition Some of the worst characters appear in striped black and white flannel petticoats and those women are called the Pctticoaters One Petticoater was on an unusu ally high spree on the Saturday night the writer went through the Bridget as Bridge Gate street Is called Mad Kith drink this fighting woman rushed home to her attic put out her children end with a hatchet smashed the furni lure and oven tore to pieces the children clothes The oldest boy 11 vent to the police but in the meantime The infuriated mother had nailed up he door and defied them to enter Thus in one nights intoxication the Tetticoater had broken up her home destroyed the household treasures and cast her children into the street The young women for the most part wear coarse shawls and with great deftness they wind them first about their babies and then about themselves Every young woman seems to be a mother but they pay scant attention to the little ones about the only protection a baby gets being the support from the shawl I havo seen girls of 11 and 13 so intoxicated that they could not walk straight Even the little girls of six and seven congregate outside the saloons waiting for a peep in or hoping that mother will let them have a drap The little waifs are barefooted and halfnaked The droop in the corner of the mouth ol many of these little people indicates plainly the depression caused by cruel j and neglect together with ill health and hunger Little slum angels born with an appetite for drink they have a hard time ahead of them if they grow to womanhood The cause of the degradation is ihe wretched home life laziness and in temperance Thirty thousand families in Glasgow live in oneroomed fiats Sometimes indeed six or seven fam ilies live In one long room with only a chalk mark or piece of rope divid ing the rented space Huddled to gether In such massed men womeni and childrenonly the grossest immor ality can result Shelter houses are now being built rapidly however i where men may find a comfortablel nights lodging for a pittance About these shelters on Saturday nights men are gathered by the score while women and children stand near by begging their husbands for coppers There are a few shelters for women also where for eight cents In Amer ican money a woman may stay over night and have a place to cook her own tea and breakfast But these shelters do not take the place o9 a home for no provision is made for the children A little one may sleep with the mother till it is five years old but the beds are narrow like the bunks of a steamer and generally there are half a dozen youngsters The shelters how ever are an improvement over the ten ements and in them people are obliged to live decently- A large home has been established for married men with children who have drunken wives The wee kid dies as tho Scotch express It art taken care of at an absurdly small sum and the father is with them at night This picture of sin and shame wouldj be untrue to life did it not contain some bright patches here and ther Besides these shelters and institutions there are pleasant parks in the very heart of the slums a fine peoples pal ace and art gallery and opportunit- for every woman who will try to live clean One home took in a youngi woman that Saturday night who 1 s only 32 and has been in prison 74 times The good people of Glasgow give the 70 times opportunity to
