A TRAGEDY IN A PICTURE.
His Snap Shot of a Drink That Killed
"The most remarkable snap shot pic
ture in the world Is owned by a friend
of mine in a town in Georgia," said an
enthusiastic amateur photographer.
"Its story is extremely curious. It
seems that he went one day to a black
smith shop to get a shot at the men at
the forge. The smith was engaged on
a difficult piece of ironwork and had
two helpers. Jut behind them on a
shelf was a pint llask full of yellowish
white liquor, evidently the corn whis
ky for which the native Georgian has
a peculiar liking.
"As my friend was preparing to take
his picture one of the helpers caught
sight of the bottle aud communicated
his discovery by dumb show to his
companion. The smith's back was
turned at the moment, and the first
man reached stealthily for the prize,
while my friend, unnoticed in the cor
ner, quickly aimed his camera. It was
a comical scene, aud in his mind In
had already named the photo 'The
"The helper uncorked the flask aud
took a swift gulp, nnd his comrade
snatched it and did likewise. Then for
a brief, breathless instant they looked
at each other, and as they did so their
foolish grin gave way to such a stare
of questioning horror as I never 'saw
before upon a human face. I know
because it was then that the camera
clicked, and the picture is as clear as
crystal. The flask contained carbolic
acid. "Within an hour both men weie
"When my friend took one print, ho
broke the negative so as to make th.j
photograph absolutely unique. It
shows the forward eud of the shop.
In the foreground is the anvil, with
the smith bending over his work. Be
hind him are the two helpers, one still
holding the llask, looking at each oth
er. You can see tragedy in their eyes
as plaln'as print. It is a frightful aivl
dramatic tableau that could not he
duplicated by any sort of art" New
An Important Question That lias Not
Yet Been Settled.
The tire question is one for which
the manufacturers of automobiles haye
not yet found a satisfactory answer.
The most vulnerable part of the vehicle
is the rim of the wheels, and In order
to Insure comfort, safety and beauty
experiments hnve been made by nearly
til manufacturers which Involved
much more expense than is known to
the people outside of the business. The
monster pneumatic tires are unsightly
nnd give the vehicles a ponderous and
unwieldly appearance, besides being
expensive. In order to overcome these
objections tires of various sizes, shapes
and designs have been made and are
being used for the purpose of determin
ing which is the most practicable.
Among tho recent patterns Is a
square tire with corrugated surface,
which is a great improvement on the
old balloon in looks, although its manu
facturers have not tested it sufficient
ly to give au opinion on Its lasting
properties. Some of the newest pleas
ure vehicles have a narrow wheel and
a tire correspondingly small, and the
life of these tires is also being watched
"Only careful investigation," said a
manufacturer, "will solve the prob
lem. We have nothlncr except the bi
cycle tire to go by aud must get our
knowledge through expensive experi
ments." The cost of rubber tites justilies a
large outlay for the purpose of discov
ering which is the most durable pat
tern and design. Tires cost from s.25
to SoO each, and some of the special
patterns are still more expensive. The
experiments with the various tires are
being watched with much attention
by the people who arc interested in
tho horseless trucks, because the heavy
vehicles will require tires of great
strength. The solid rubber tire has
been used witli some success in heavy
vehicles and is having its share of at
tention in the tests which are now be
ing made. New York Tribune.

Ineennltr f tile Tacnlui In Ilullil
Masila, June 19. Nothing has im
pressed me more powerfully than the
panorama now unfolding itself in this
great armed camp of the isle of Luzon.
From the end of our south line at the
village of Paranaque, actually half a
dozen miles nearer Manila than Cavite,
there came a few days ago signs that a
hot fight was in progress. We could
hear the rattle of musketry, the thun
der roll of artillery, the bang, bang,
bang, of the rapid fire guns, each round
permanently making good Filipinos out
of several insurgents, possibly also still
ing forever the heart beat of soino

firing at Paranaque, when, on our north

was also pushing the insurrectos des
perately, here in Manila the horse races
of the season took place as usual. The
regulation track, tho grand stand, tho
drinking bar tricked out with American
flags, were all there, familiar to our
sight as patent medicine advertise
ments. A native band, fortunately a
coasiderable distnnco away, made al
leged music. Spanish ladies, a few well
dressed, and all cf them bare headed in
the pretty Manila fashion, sat in the
seats of the grand stand as in the old
days, flashing their dark eyes hither
and thither and flirting silly little fans.
But the prettiest vomen and those most
handsomely dressed are Americans, al
ways Americans. Hatchet faced jockeys
in the samo old red, yellow and purple
satin togs that have seen better days
darted in and out upon the scene and
urged the stumpy little heathen ponies
of the islands to the top of their speed,
which, at risk of laming themselves for
life or bursting a blood vessel, they can
bring up to 2:14 or 2:10. People would
go on just the same at the crack of
doom, after they got used to it. And
why not? There "mucho boom boom. "
here horse racing.
Each letter I writo 1 say to myself,
"Let us hope fervently that peace will
descend in blessing on the Philippines
ere this reaches my readers." Each
week meantime new regiments arrive
from the mighty States. There are near
40,000 American soldiers here now.
Almost every morning men in blue and
brown, fully accoutered for fight, their
dog tents slung across their backs, their
rifles upon their shoulders, battalion
after battalion, swing through tho town
with the long, free 6tep of tho soldier
and the white man, marching to the
field, to victory or death, and victory in
any case. Sometimes it will be a pack
train of colossal mules from the States,
with dashing western cowboy soldiers
rounding the creatures up and guiding
them in the way they should go, the
boys whooping it up and yelling mer
rily as if thev were on their own great
plains. The very bight of thoe big
mules, here whero nearly everything is
stunted and dried np and "ornery" look
ing, does the American eye good. Even
the commissioners whom Aguinaldo
sent to sue for peace with General Otis
were of that same wi timed up. inferior
Two talents the natives hero possess,
and only two, so far as I can see. They
have a quick ear for music and the
imitative faculty in this direction re
markably developed. A good Tagalo
musician can pick out upon his mandolin
any air that may be hummed or whis
tled to him. and he remembers it after
ward and can play it One oiiginal
Tagalo composition I have heard that
is spirited and musical it is the
"Aguinaldo March, " baid to have leen
made all out of his own head by that
leader's secretary. It is the rallying
note of the rebel host, from head man
to water carrier. Tho Filipinos in Ma
nila play and whistle the inarch to
themselves, but are shy of letting it bo
heard bv tho Americans, unlets they
aro especially persnaded. We ought to
have this march in the United States.
It would be mi acquisition to military
The other Tagalo talent is the highly
developed ability to weavo by hand tex
tile fabrics whatever may be pnt to
gether by twining and crossing threads,
fiber, bark aud canes, such as basket,
mats, fences and huts. In this work
the practice of ages has made them as
skillful as a beaver in building its dam
or a bird in weaving its nest. This skill
crops out at one point where it was
hardly to have been looked for. With
the materials at their hand, Aguinaldo's
natives are probably tho cloverest con
structors of intrenchments in tho world
Tho pictures illustrate. The Tngnlo
soldier drives a double row of stake.-) into
the ground. Tho rows are a foot or :nor
apart The native then weaveH in and
out among them strips of bamboo, till
ho makes a double fence, hard to get
through as the bottom of a cane Feat
chair. Between the rows ho fills earth
in, and tho thing is done. It is as high
as tho Tagalo's head, breast high for
the American soldier, and harder, far
harder, to penetrate than a stone walL
The first illustration shows the out-side
of one of the?e intrenchments, the sec
ond the inside of the same. This woven
trail is pierced with cunningly con
structed loopholes, jnst large enough
for the native shooter to look through
tnd pick off with hi Manser the Amer
ican soldiers one after another as they
approach. Some of theM native in
trenchnientp arc i-nch marvel of .-kill
and adaptability to the nse for which
they were intended that American mili
tary engineers have not hesitated to
say they wcnld be absolutely impossible
to take, with a well conditioned army
of whito men behind them, instead of a
horde of irresolute Malays.
The cunning of the wild man is shown
as well in some of these defenses. Here
and there are false intrenchments, look
ing from the outside like formidable
works, but inside as hollow as the soul
of the man who lives for himself alone.
At Malolos, after the natives had fled
therefrom, a remarkable specimen of
this kind of hnnibug breastwork was
But no brown man, or red man, or
black or yellow, can stand against the
white man in this cycle of the world's
history. I never was so entirely per
suaded of that as I have been since
spending these months in the orient.
What has been we know not. Of what
is to be we know still los. But this
much is certain: This is the white
man's age and the white man's hour.
May he use it justly and well.
Neither is courage of a spurtish sort
lacking to the Filipinos. They fight
desperately for a little while, then are
seized with panic and rnn. They always
take with them on their retreats, if
possible, the few Spanish pri'oners who
still remain in their hands. These they
make slaves of aud force thm to do
their menial work, thus turning the
tables on the haughty Spaniard with a
vengeance. When recently Aguinaldo
was asked by a petition of foreign mer
chants in Manila to release Queen Chris
tina's subjects who were still prisoners
in his camp, he replied that he kKed
their hands, bnt he couldn't do it. The
Filipino war was a legacy that Spain
had handed over to the Americans, and
until these took tho prifoners either by
force of arms or treaty they were still
his as mnch" as if he were yet fighting
against the old country.
In this wretched Filipino war there
will be few large strategic movements
or scientific campaigns over which
learned military critics in newspaper
and magazine offices at home may ex
ploit their brilliancy. The strategy has
been now to run down Aguinaldo and
catch him, now to surround him and
drive him iu, both of which lines of
policy have signally failed up to date.
It is in the story of individual ex
ploits and regiments that the thrilling
interest and romance of this war will
lie Each regiment ought to have its
own history caretnliv written Dy some
one who knows how to do it.
The battle of the Kio Grande, north
of Manila, was one of tho ino-t import
ant that ha- taken place here, notable
because then and there the insurgents
maintained their ground and allowed
themselves to le fired at fnll 20 min
utes before they began to rnn. It was a
signal victory for u, yet the immediate
success of the attack was owing to the
pluck and skill of outy two men. They
belonged to the Kansas regiment.
The insurgents were on one side of
the Rio Grande, the Americans on the
other. To whip the insurgents it was
necessary to get at them, and they had
so damaged the bridge over the river

tie army on that. Tho insurrectos were
pouring fire at us from their trenches.
At this moment the two Kansas pri
vates volunteered to swim tho river
nnder fire and take a rope with them,
so as to start a ferry. They entered the
water, drawing upon themselves the
(ire of all the Filipinos who saw them.
The chan&e was not ono in a hundred
that the heroes would succeed. Yet
they actually did swim tliat swift river
under iire, carrying a heavy rope with
them. Without a sign that the heeded

There is food for the pliilo5oilierin that
in fact for two kind. of philosophers
those who like to trace effect to cane
and those who pay the bill-, without
Tumbling. The latter is the more use
liil kind, nnd I think the philosopher
who pays tho bilh in the trne spirit is
far more valuable tohnmanity than tho
others who go poking through the
musty records of tho past and try to
fit them into the nineteenth century.
Give me the philo.-oplier who puts his
hand into his pocket and pays a mil
liner's bill without a grimace, thankful
that it is no bigger, and satisfied to
bear that ill, so that greater ones may
not fall upon him.
It is so hot today that one may be
pardoned for digressions. I bad intend
ed to tell lots of things about other
folk's clothes ; but it is, as the French
say, trop fort pour moi. Still, duty is
duty, and I will take my stand npon
that maxim and do my best. The heat
is so great that the ink dries on my pen
every short word, thus making the la
bor three times as great, to say nothing
of the angry feelings thus engendered.
In fact, I don't caro whether anybody
has any new clothes or not. So there I
Jnst think how one can lonngo under
the iron pier at Coney It-land Coney
the great and only and bo cool and
comfortable, or- or be anywhero but
just right here. Well, there was a lady
who started off today for Newport with
a whole trnnlc full of lovely things. I
just hope the sun will fade them, the
spray will spot them, tho bushes will
tear them and the damp air make them
look like rags. I feel better now and
will go on with my story.
Every day tho largest and swellest
establishments receive oiders for sup
plementary gowns and wraps from la
dies whose wardrobes were full and
running over with beautiful and costly
things when they went there only a few
short weeks ago. Now they aro crying
for more. It is said that never in the
history of Newport has there been so
much fine dressing as there is this sea
son. It is like ilay Irwin's song, "If
you hasn't any (fino clothes), yon
needn't como around." White satin
dresses covered with costly lace ruffles
are worn in the street, cloth of gold
and silver at (ho dinnera and other
grand affairs, and jewels bv the barrel
fnl. In many cases it is not so much the
richness of the material itself, bnt the
elaborateness of the making. There was
a touiara waiKmg dress nnisnea tnis
week at a big house for Mrs. J. Town
send Burden. It was in three shades of
blue a sort of dusty gray blue founda
tion with vermicelli design in two mnch
darker shades. The peculiarity consist
ed in the arrangement of the fullness of
Almost all belts now, except the
leather ones, aro shaped somewhat in
front This is "decidedly pretty and does
not give one that cut off sort of look at
the waist Some belts nre wide and
somo very narrow, but the buckles ere
works of real art. Mrs. Bnrdon must
have recovered all her stolen jewels, as
it is said she outshines the sun when
she "drebses up" for grand events.
One of the daintiest of all tho sum
mer styles is the pinafore or guimpe
waist The guimpo and sleeves fit close
ly and are of all over lace, with ruffles
of other lace at the neck. These look
and aro delightfully cool. Organdie in
dark blue or some other dark and al
most solid color look tho best made in
this style. Thero aro somo dainty china
and India silks made like this. The
narrow belt is stiffened and covered
with velvet aud curved down in front
Chatelaine bags made of beading and
of velvet or satin, handsomely embroid
ered and with fancy silver or gold
clasps, aro almost necessary to theso
costumes, mado as they aro without
Hats grow mora nnd more like those
of the first empire, and sre correspond
ingly picturesque. Heart shaped brims
are among the new oiu?. The poke,
with high crown and wide strings, will
surely be the leader for fall, as it is
now seen in felt in all colors in the im
poi ting houses. But just now the dainty
snnbonnet has tho call for outdoor
sports, and even for bathing, while the
sailor, with its qnill and white veil, is
for everything. Olive Harper.

makes women young again. It gives new

wifehood and prepares for motherhood.
It "banishes morning sickness and other
discomforts of ante-maternity. It makes
