Collins Claimed Ilia Innocence.
Chicago, June 30. At the close of
the evidence in tho case of Elizabeth
Ann Ingersoll and John C. Collins,
charged with kidnaping Gerald lapinei
there occurred a pathetic sceno.
Sirs. I. J. Burchard of Amboy, 111.,
sister of Sirs, ingersoll, had raken the
stnnd in her sister's defense to show
that ihe was not morally or legally re-
sponsible for her deed. After court had
adjourned and the room was well
cleared of spectators, Mrs. Burchard
forced her way. to Mr. -Lapiuer.
"Have pity on my sister, Mr. La
piner," she cried, bowing down before
him in supplication. "Don't scud her
to state's jirisoa; no don't. She is old
and poor. Have pity, as you .hope for
Air. Lapiuur brushed past her and
with his wife and child, left tho room,
while a look of despair settled on the
aged face of the supplicant.
John Collins, co-defendant with Mrs.
Ingersoll, was on the stand during the
day. Ho said he knew nothing of the
stealing of the child. Mrs. Ingersoll
told him she had found the boy, and,
after vainly looking for his parents, had
brought him with her. That was all he
knew of the iie.
The defense introduced testimony to
show Mrs. Ingersoll insane and not re
sponsible for what she did when she
kidnaped Gerald Lapiner.
The state offered -witnesses in rebut
tal, all of whom declared the defend
ant sane. It is probable that the cases
will go to the jury tonight.
GENERAL MILES IN PITTSBURG.

Pittsburg, June 30. Major General
Nelson A. Miles, commander of tho
United States army, is in t he city, tho
guest of the labor organizations. In
talking of the. Tenth Pennsylvania, ho
at one point said:
Thc Tcuth Pennsylvania is a good
regiment and did excellent fighting in
the Philippines. Its soldiers are de
serving of any honors the people of
Western Pennsylvania may care to be
stow upon their return. I would also
like to sec Colouel -Hawkins promoted
to a bricadier general. Ho is a first
class officer, and is deserving of some
recognition, which I believe he will get
before he leaves tlie service.
General Miles does not believo in dis
banding men so far away from homo as
San Francisco, but from a pecuniary'
point of view the soldiers thus dis
charged, he claims, receive nioro ad
vantage. He settled the point finally
for Mayor Diehl, however, that the
Tenth cannot be mustered out in Pitts
burg and receive travel pay from San
Francisco. Army rules and laws would
prohibit this, and no authority, ho says,
could change them.

Smith, McRea and Schinski were res

picked up by tne passenger steamer

Braun toiuid that the boat was making
little headway and concluded the only
thing to do was turn back and go with
the storm. According to the story of
Coyle it was about 2 o'clock when the
captaiu gave tho order to turn about.
The vessel hud turned half way round
when the rudder chain parted and in an
instant the boat was at the mercy of the
storm. She was caught between two
waves aud as she was borne along tho
top of one of them she rolled over on
the side. The cabius were torn loose
and floated on tho water, while the rest
of tlie ship went to the bottom.
Whether any of tho occupants were

Commissioner Worcester's answer fol

Editor The Times-Herald, Chicago:
The original statement of Brenner is
Brenner's charge was promptly in
vestigated by tho military authorities
No facts were ascertained to support
the charge at the time of first inquiry,
but tho investigation has been renewed
and is being prosecuted vigorously and
extensively. This investigation has not
yet been completed.
Brenner's charge has some semblance
of truth, for tho reason that it is now
believed that two prisoners .were shot
in the heat of battle for refusing to pass
to the rear when ordered to do so.
This matter is being probed to the
bottom. It is an isolated case.
The inhabitants of the towns recently
captured had been maltreated, robbed
and left destitute by the insurgents.
The natives rejoice at the arrival of
the American troops, who neither burn
their homes nor loot their property, and
who feed the hungry. .
The inhabitants are resuuiinsr then-
ordinary occupations and are ready to
co-operate with us.
The wouuded insurgents are brought
to Manila, where they receive the same
care and atteution as our own wounded.

Mrs. Skinner had held her breath and
looked nt her friend with bright, piercing

with tlie slightest trace of irritation hi

Skinner's face. This was rather disap

un effort and went on patiently: "It was

She paused and looked at Penelope,
trying to decide if she was goiug too far.
"You know, he began to go with her
pretty soon after you got through with
him. Well, I thought p'rhaps he didn't
know his own mind, and maybe you'd
seen him larking round her"
"Well," said Penelope suddenly, "do
you blame a girl for being mad under
such circumstances?' .
Mrs. Skinner caught her breath. It
was coming out now.
"So that was the reason V she said, her
voice shrill with excitement. "So that
was the reason? You don't say!"
"No, I dou't say," said Penelope. There
was a mischievous leam in Jier eyes. "1
don't say so, and that wasn't the reason.
I was just fooling you."
Mrs. Skinner knit very fast, and her

looked at her now and then. "They say

knitting and leaned forward eagerly.

Mrs. Skinner looked blank for a mo

awful late: Mirnndy'il be expecting me."
She put ou her things in haste, then she
said goodby aud went out.
Penelope stood in the door with an
amused smile on hdr lips and watched
her visitor till she reached the road, then
she stepped out and ran lightlv after her.
"Mis' Skinner," she called.
Mrs. Skinner paused ami waited im
patiently. "You forgot to inquire why he didn't

"Well?" said Mrs. Skfnner
There was a quiet dignity aliout Pene

in days of old the knights were wont to
face er lions and that sort of thing for
fair ladies. Xow they"
"Marry them and face the tax collector

a debutante, but they are suspicious aft

"I know it, dear, but L am perfectly
safe in allowing myself freedom of speech
among feminine friends, at any rate.
They are so careful never to repeat one's
clever remarks with credit given, at
"But, as I was saying, there is no ro
mance nowadays. When Aunt Marian
was married, all the ushers were men
who had wanted to marry her. There
was romance, if you like."
"Il'm. Has- she any proof?' nsked the
girl in the chiffon hat. "Somehow it
does seem that all -the women of the last
generation claim at -least 10 offers ot
marriage apiece. I don't see where such
a superfluity of men came from. Then,
nil the stout women remind one constant

"Why, that is trne!" cried the young
woman in blue. "I never thought of that.

friends and relatives is safely over and

"H'm, I was just thinking, Mae, what
a horror men have of appearing publicly
in the role of bridegroom. I've often
wondered horn polygamy ever gained a
foothold for that reason. One ceremony

it after one or two weddings. The thing
which caused me to lose faith in human

"I do. He used to be such an imagina

he would turn nut a poet or just a com

"Well, you remember that he said he
would die if I refnsed to marry him?"
"I do. I also rpmembcr telling you
that you both ;vuuld die of starvation
if you married him."
"I et I don't remember that. I do
remember that I lay awake for several
nights expecting to hear a pistol 6hot un
der my window. Uh, papa was so heart
less about it! When I wanted him to
notify the police.or the newspapers, he
said he'd do nothing of the kind. He
hinted that it would be the best thing

George didn't kill himself after all."

invitations to the wedding, I decided to

knew George would come, however pain

said he would do anything in the world

"Humph! I wouldn't pnt too much
faith in that, dear. Nowadays the men
are demanding their rights, and the priv
ilege of changing their minds seems to be
one of them. Dear me, I am so sorry
that I was away from home when you
were married. But of course you told all
the girls beforehand that George was
coming. It would make it so much more
interesting to watch him"
"I know. I even showed them a pho
tograph of him, so they would be sure-to
know in case he had learned the Indian
habit of concealing his feelings. I am
sorry now that I did it."
"You don't say so? Was his grief so
harrowing as all that? Oh, how delicious

Just because you changed your mind and

years of sorrow that nobody recognized

A CLEAN MAN.
Outside cleanliness is less than Iialf
the battle. A man may scrub himself a
cozen times a uay, ana
still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness
not only outside, but in
side. It means a clean
stomach, clean bowels,
clean blood, a clean
liver, and new, clean,
healwv tissues and fi
bers in every organ of
the 'body. The man
who is- clean in this
way will look it and act
it. He will work with
energy and think clean, clear, healthy
He will never be troubled with liver,
lung, stomach or blood disorders. Dys
pepsia and indigestion originate in
unclean stomachs. Blood diseases are
found where there L unclean blood.
