HARRY IS CONVICTED
Hayward Found Guilty
of the Murder of
DEATH IS THE PENALTY.
Gloomy Jurors Who Only Did
What Their Plain Duty
PROTECTING THE PRISONER.
Police Prevent an Angry Mob From
Doing Violence to the
MiNNK\mLiP, Match B.— "ln two hours I
will be a free man."
Thus said Harry Hayward to-day, and
in less than three hours a jury of his peers
gave the lie to his words, and placed its
seal Upon the word "guilty."
With the same immovable stolidity with
which he has watched the trial of his case,
the prisoner received the verdict of the
jury. There was not a shadow of a change
in color, not the relaxation of a single
muscle, no visible collapse or sign of any
emotion ; ever the same cynical and sneer
ing indifference. According to the
statutes of the State of Minnesota, only
one fate can await Harry Hayward — to be
hanged by the neck until he is dead.
Neither the jury nor the Judge could alter
the sentence, no matter how strongly in
clined they might be toward leniency.
For murder in the nrst degree the law pro
vides only one penalty. Judge and jury
alike are but the agents of the State for the
execution of that law.
At the reqiiest of counsel for the defense,
the pronouncing of the sentence was de
ferred until next Monday morning, but
the verdict of the jury has made the sen
tence of Harry Hayward as certain as
though the Judge had already an
The jurymen looked stern and sad, and
Hayward knew his fate before a word was
spoken. No spectators were admitted.
The only persons present when the ver
dict was handed In were police officers,
two Sheriffs, Deputy Sheriffs and report
ers, besides the Judge and the clerks.
Outside, a howling, anxious mob awaited
the news, and awaited it with ghoulish im
When Judge Smith arrived he issued
strict orders to admit no one, and the in
junction was religiously observed. Kobler,
the County Clerk, asked in a tremulous
voice whether the jury had agreed upon a
verdict, and Neil McNeil, the foreman,
stood up. His face was ghastly in its color
and there was not a man an the jury un
affected by the intense gravity of the situa
tion. Timberlake's dark eyes shone like
sloes from his ashen visage, and even the
farmer members were visibly horrified
with the stern duty devolving on them.
••■We have agreed," said McNeil in a
voice that was scarcely audible, and a
folded piece of paper that meant life or
death to the accused was handed to the
Judge Smith looked over the document
tirst and returned it to Deputy Clerk
"We, the jury, find the prisoner guilty,"
he read. Every eye was turned toward the
condemned man. There was nothing in
his face to indicate that he had heard a
word of it. He threw his head back a? the
word "guilty was pronounced, but it was
only to adjust his collar-band. He did not
change color by a single shade. Twice he
coughed — that strange, bard, metallic
cough that has been heard so often in the
last few weeks. Then looking around at
the crowd he raised his eyebrows inquir
ingly, as though to ask, "What next?"
During the polling of the jury he lis
tened with evident interest to the answers,
though what they might be could signify
nothing to him. The expression on his
face was one of indignation rather than
any other sentiment.
Judge Smith then voiced his thanks to
the jury for their labor? in connection with
the case. When the court announced that
sentence would be deferred until Monday
morning Hayward was evidently pleased.
He expressed the opinion while being re
moved from the courtroom that the ver
dict was an outrage and that he was a long
way from the hangman yet.
Albert Hall, the Assistant County Attor
ney, received the verdict in a manner that
said as plainly as words, "I knew it."
When he arose to move an immediate sen
tence, Hayward half laughed and then
glowered at the State's lawyer in an en
raged manner. He feels a keen dislike for
Hall on account of certain early indict
ments in the case, and has lost no oppor
tunity to make this plain.
At 2:45 P. m. Hayward was taken down
stairs and led back to jail under a strong
police guard. In the belief that trouble
might occur if the verdict exonerated Hay
ward, a force of determined officers had
been detailed to duty at the courtroom and
vicinity. An immense crowd awaited the
prisoner'? coming. He grinned at the mob
as it pushed forward over tne pavement
toward him, and it is doubtful whether
Harry Hayward would have regretted an
opportunity to mix matters with some of
the noisiest. He was taken across the
street on a dog trot with thefyelline multi
tude at his heels.
"Good-by, Harry, old boy," cried one of
the men at the top of his voice. "You're a
"Not yet." said Hayward loud enongh
to be heard in a radius of twenty feet.
''Not quite a dead duck yet."
Matters looked threatening for a time.
The officers massed around their prisoner
determinedly, and there would have been
serious trouble had any effort been made
to attack. The entrance to the jail was at
last reached, and a side dodge sent a dozen
members of the crowd thing in different
directions. Whatever the demonstration
may have meant it resulted in nothing.
Hayward was safely lodged in his cell.
In the courtroom, after the jurors were
discharged, dozens of friends crowded
around the men and there was an old
fashioned reunion. No restriction re
mained on the jury and they were willing
to tell about their deliberations from the
moment of retiring. It was learned that
on the first vote taken a unanimous verdict
of guilty was reached. This vote was not
taken until after dinner. There was not a
shadow of dispute as to what the verdict
should be. It took but a moment to clear
After announcing that sentence would
be deferred until Monday morning Judge
Smur left the bench. The jurymen were
conducted to the clerk's office where they
west paid there fees for seven weeks' ser
vice and then returned to the hotel. Sam
uel Dyer, whose illness came near com
pelling a new trial in the case, will not be
taken home until to-morrow morning.
During the last few days he had taken a
turn for the better and his condition is not
as serious as it was thought it would be.
On the advice of his physicians, however,
he will be compiled to remain in bed for
at least a month.
At the request of the attorneys for the
defense none of the prisoner's relatives
were in the room when the verdict was
read. Mr. and Mrs. Hayward, the pris
oner's parents, were prostrated at the end
of the morning session. All through the
progress of the case they have stood the
strain well, but the nearness of the end
was too much for them to contemplate.
Adry Hayward has not been in court for
the last week. He has been at various
places in the city, still in the company of
a Deputy Sheriff, but he avoided the
vicinity of the courtroom.
For two hours after the verdict had been
announced a crowd of people remained
discussing the case on the sidewalks and in
the roads about the courthouse and jail.
The unanimous opinion seemed to be that
the verdict was a just one and that truth
It is understood that the indisposition of
Mr. Erwin is really serious. After the
dose of his address this morning he col
lapsed, and for two hours was almost un
able to see. Recovering to some extent, he
at once left for St. Paul.
A messenger was in the courtroom with
instructions to hurry to the Ozark as soon
as a verdict was given. He left as soon as
the wora "guilty" had fallen from the lips
of the clerk. Hayward made a motion as
though he would intercept the boy, but he
was not quick enough; the news had sped.
In an incredible short space of time, almost
a matter of seconds after the result was
announced, a wild yell from the street told
that it was already the property of the
Among the people congregated outside
the courthouse were several hundred
women, and the feeling among them
seemed to be fully as hostile as that of the
To illustrate the consummate nerve and
nonchalance of the accused, after he had
been taken to the jail, following the retire
ment of the jury, he turned to Siries, one
of the officers, with the remark: "Let's
play a game of cards on the result," to
which the reply was made by one of the
deputies: "I'll come in there and play,
Harry, if you'll promise not to notice me."
AKGVMEXT AM> CHARGE.
Closing Scenes in Court Before the Jury
Minneapolis, March B.— Court opened an
hour earlier than usual to-day to give Mr.
Erwin time to close his argument for the
defense in the Hayward case, which had
already lasted two days. Erwin began by
pointing out that the loan Harry Hayward
had made to Miss Ging had not Wen at
tacked in the evidence except by the word
of Claus Blixt. The validity of this loan
was the citadel of the defense. It was
evident that had the police machine
been properly set in motion the mystery
surrounding Miss Ging'fl behavior would
have been solved and in a manner consist
ent with the noble character of the girl.
At the same lime it would have relieved
this "innocent man from the chain under
which he now rests."
Erwin then devoted himself to the alibi
and claimed that all of Harry's time when
he was involved by Blixt's testimony had
been satisfactorily accounted for. In clos
ing he said this was the most monstrous
persecution in history, and continued :
"If you are, in obedience to the pressure
brought on you, to tear down all the rules
of law; if fanaticism and the monstrosity
of this alliance between the perjurer and
the murderer are to influence you, then
tell your artisans to remove from all our
domes the statue of Justice. Tell them to
put in her place a figure of the Hag of Hell.
Take down your flag, the nag of your re
public, the red and white and blue. Take
it down, the old flag of freedom, and bid
your officers roar in its place that polished,
black fac« of hellish perjury. You, gentle
men of the jury, you are in the hands of
God ; no power can mar or overthrow your
verdict. Beware that you do not betray
the conscience of the nation."
It took Judge Seagrave Smith forty min
utes to read his charge to the jury. He de
clared that the verdict must be guilty as
charged or not guilty. If the defendant
was guilty it was premeditated. The Judge
intimated that there could be no verdict of
guilty less than murder in the first degree.
He then explained the reasonable doubt
theory at great length. He continued :
"To what extent the defense has dis
credited Blixt's testimony is for you gentle
men to say. They say his testimony was
conflicting, and you have a right to take
into consideration the condition of Blixt's
mind that night. It is necessary for you
to be satisfied that Blixt killed Miss Ging.
Second, that Hayward incited the crime.
"If, when you retire, you are satisfied
that Blixt killed the girl you may pro
ceed; if not, do not consider the verdict
further. But if Harry did incite, as
charged, your verdict will be guilty. The
State is not relying on circumstantial evi
dence, but has the positive testimony-of
Blixt that he killed Miss Gine;, and the
positive statement of Adry Hayward a few
days before the murder that Harry said he
was going to kill her. This testimony is
also supported, as it must be, by much
circumstantial evidence. You must decide
how far this evidence is worthy of credence
and how far it is corroborative. The testi
mony of an accomplice must be accepted
with extreme care."

Judge Caldwell of the United Suites Cir
cuit Conrt gave an informal hearing to the
attorneys of the Central Trust Company,
representing the first mortgage bond
holders of the Colorado Midland Railroad.
They tiled a motion asking for the appoint
ment of separate receivers for the Colorado

entertain it. He said that he did not pro

for separate receivers until the reorganiza

if after this plan had been submitted its
provisions were not satisfactory to any of

separate receivers would be in order, and
not until then.

This is the death list so far as known
from to-day's river disaster, in which the
magnificent New Orleans steamer Long
fellow was crushed on a bridge pier and
sunk in less than live minutes.
Unfortunately the complete list may
never be known. All the records of the
steamer were lost with it and no passenger
list is ever left ashore. For hours there
were rumors of the loss of an invalid young
woman from New York, accompanied by a
female physician, but the constant asser
tion of the officers of the steamer that all
the passengers were rescued except Mr.
Aldrich and the statement of passengers
that there was no panic or wild rushing
for safety led to the hope that the rumor
Later in the afternoon, in a portion of
the wreckage which had been landed some
distance below the city, the body of a
young woman was found. She was wear
ing a satin night dress and a black skirt
was about her form as if she had been in
the act of dressing. A small satchel was
in her hand, but it contained nothing to
The accident was one of peculiar horror.
It was daylight, the fog hod disappeared,
and the great steamer, fearful of the peril
of passing the bridge piers, had been. given
the assistance of the powerful towboat
Hercules Carroll. When almost upon the
pier the pilot found himself confronted
with an alarming condition.
The powerful cross-currents, which no
human foresight could have located, caught
the long steamer like a toy and turned the
boat away from the course he had given it.
At the same time the smoke from the
lower chimneys, which had been let down
to allow the boat to pass under the bridges,
was wholly obscuring the vision.
The Hercules Carroll's pilot, being
located almost behind the great steamer,
was also unable to see the boat's position,
and more likely it was not strong enough
to turn its course against the treacherous
And so the fated Longfellow was carried
like a helpless thing against the pier and
crushed into a wreck. So quick was the
work of destruction that in five minutes
not a vestige of the steamer was visible ex
cept bits of the wreckage. The carpenter
had time to go into the hold with a lan-
tern, whence he hurriedly returned with
the report that nothing: could save the
Longfellow from immediate sinking.

The Club That Played the Fascinating
Game in the Kegistrar's Office
Disrupted by a Quarrel.
The hand of affliction has fallen upon
the Hearts Club, and the lonesome latter
days of that unique organization stagger
on under a crushing weight of gloom.
The club is composed of the men who
watch the ballots in the Registrar's office
and must continue to watch them until
the Legislature adjourns and the people
feel that a hand has been withdrawn from
their pockets. It was organized shortly
after election and is composed of Joe Keat
ing, D. Q. Troy, Mr. Silver. Thomas Burke
Billy Jordan, Mr. Cass, Mr. Le Clair and
Mr. Slattery. Policeman Mangan, related
to ex-Chiet Martin Burke, is on duty at
the oftice and was elected a silent member
of the club ere discord blighted its joy and
malice camped on its hearthstone.
Night after night the members played
hearts for ten cents a corner, and when
Mr. Hinton was appointed Registrar, and
dropped in one evening to see how his
faithful assistants were getting along they
invited him to take a hand, saying that
they were playing just for fun, arid to keep
from sleeping. Mr. Hinton, whose igno
rance of sin is comprehensive took a hand,
and after a time departed satisfied that the
genial young gentlemen would never
think of gambling in the sacred precincts
of his oflice, and Policeman Mangan, true
to his obligation as the silent member, did
not enlighten him.
Several nights passed, and the Regis
trar's visit was almost forgotten, when the
unpleasant event referred to in the forego
ing cast its shadow over the organization.
Mr. Keating and Mr. Troy quarreled over
the game and made unfeeling remarks
about each other and threatened to do
great bodily injury the one unto the other
and had a longing" that was akin to pain to
print obituary notices about each other.
Mr. Jordan offered to make peace or
referee the light, but his advances were
treated with contumely and scorn and he
was urged to solicit an introduction to
himself. The deadly breach could not be
bridged and now trie club is in the throes
of dissolution. Worse than all the Regis
trar has heard of the quarrel and of the
10-cent a corner game and threatens to ap
}>oint himself a Lexow Committee with
power to act.
IROQUOIS AND THE CHARTER.
THE WARRIORS IN REGULAR SES
SION Discuss Its Pro
M. M. Foote Pays His Respects
to the California
The members of the Iroquois Club who
met last night to discuss the provisions of
the new charter found they had mapped
out entirely too much work for one evening,
and adjourned after considering article II
of that document, which relates to the
legislative department of the city govern
ment. A brief synopsis by A. D. Lemon
presented concisely the subject-matter of
Mr. Lemon thought that the advantages
to be gained from article II alone were suffi
cient to justify the people in accepting the
charter even though it might be objection
able in some other particulars. The pre
vention of the grant of an exclusive fran
chise on any of the streets wuuld cut off
the power of any monopoly to own the
city. The curse of the municipality had
been a greedy monopoly whose grasp upon
the city it had been impossible to break.
If the city should own its own water
works it would benefit as had Eastern
cities such as Baltimore and Cleveland,
where the water rate for servio- for which
San Franciscans pay $2 was only 50 cents.
A. D. Meisegaes opposed the charter.
It had many novel features, most of which
were good, but many of them were already
covered by the State law. If any change
was advisable, such as the prevention of
exclusive franchises, it could be covered by
a general law to be passed by the Legisla
ture. The good points of the charter were
expected to cover its many infamies, as
the sugar coating makes many a bitter pill
The reference to the Legislature brought
M. M. Foote to his feet in an instant. "I
know the California Legislature," he said,
•and hell cannot improve on it. If you do
not do something now you might as well
go to the devil as to the legislature for re
"What ha* the Legislature done? Passed
a bill to prevent worthless men from smok
ing cigarettes, forbidden ladies to wear
hats at the theater, and attempted to pass
a bill prohibiting men from tampering
with ladies' underwear! If there is any
thing commendable in this charter let us
have it. If not, kill it — but for God's sake
do not go to the Legislature !"
Wesley Reed opposed invoking legisla
tive interference. The great principle of
Democracy was home rule, ana the great
evils from which ihe city now suffers were
the result of legislative interference in
municipal matters. The new charter was
the best ever proposed. It was directly in
line with municipal reform all over" the
United States, and was the nearest ap
proach to the Brooklyn charter ever <mb
mitted to tne people of any city in Califor
nia. The section under* discussion was
absolutely flawless, for its provisions coin
cided with the Jeffersonian idea of what a
legislative body should properly be.
Mr. Meisegaes retorted that the new
charter made of the Mayor a boss of the
old Tweed type.
Patrick Lynch took up the cudgels in
defense of the charter. He favored'water
works owned by the city. The present
charter was valueless and He wanted a new
i one. Under existing conditions we were
ruled by a man who was a Police Commis
sioner yesterday and a political boss to
day, and an all-powerful Mayor would be
no worse at any rate.
The discussion of the advisability of en
dowing the Mayor with such great power
as is proposed by the new charter wilfcome
up next Friday.

Wonders of Electricity.
It is said that if man thoroughly com
prehended the powers and possibilities of
electricity, he might almost hope to be
come immortal. Electricity gathers, forms
and crystallizes the elements of life. It
also furnishes the material upon which
much of our life depends. It can be used
to destroy disease germ?, and remove in
jurious ingredients of all sorts. Among its
latest uses is that of cleansing or clarifying
the syrup prepared for sugar-making. A
certain voltage evaporates the water in the
syrup, and clears it better than any
known chemical substance. The sugar
factories are adopting it, and in due
course of time this will be the
approved process. Passing an electric
current through a solution of salt forms

ia a more powerful agent in separating
chemical elements than any now in use,
and has the added advantage of not intro
ducing a new compound in the work.
Heat from an electric furnace surpasses
that obtained from coal. It is clean, man
ageable, and will some day be so economi
cal that it will supersede all other means
of heating. As an illuminating agent it is
successful beyond the wildest dreams of its
inventors. Electricity enters into almost
all of the processes of'human existence. It
is scarcely too much to say that our heat
ing, lighting, transportation, chemical
labatories and food products will, within a
few years, be entirely revolutionized by
this new power. A quarter of a century
ago such a thing as running a machine by
electricity was unknown. >ow over $900,
--000,000 are invested in machinery of this
sort. Truly the possibilities of the electric
current have just begun to dawn upon us.

BOTH ON THEIR FEET
So the Fight Between
Griffo and Dime Was
EIGHT VERY HOT ROUNDS
All the Points Seemed to Be in
PUNISHED HIS OPPONENT.
Each Fought Hard to Win the
Boston-, March B.— At Music Hall to
night in the presence of 3500 people, Young
Griffo, the famous Australian feather
weight, and Jimmy Dime of Amsterdam,
N. V., for the D-55-pound championship of
America, fought eight rounds under rules
which required the battle to be declared a
draw if each man was on his feet at the
close of the eighth round. As the condi
tions were fulfilled honors were even, al
though throughout the contest Griffo
showed his superiority, leading and land
ing when and where he pleased. Dime,
considering the punishment he received in
the face and breast, made a clever showing.
He seemed slightly overtrained.
Round 1 — Griffo landed his right on
Dime's jugular and got two right-hand
punches in return. Dime lead twice, but
missed. Griffo made several clever stops
and the round closed in his favor.
Round 2 — Dime landed short twice, and
got a swift left from Griffo on the neck.
Both led, Dime landing lightly on the
jaw. Griffo landed twice on Dime's face.
Round 3 — Grifio led, and a clinch fol
lowed. On Griffo's lead Dime ducked and
fell. Griffo then got in twice with his
right and again with his left on the heart,
nearly knocking his opponent down. Dime
planted a straight left on Griffo's ear,
which Griffo returned. In-fighting closed
Round 4— Griffo led and landed lightly.
Dime led three times and missed. Griffo
let out with his left and nearly floored
Dime with a blow on the jaw. Dime led
and missed. He repeated the same tactics
several times with the same results.
Round s—Dime5 — Dime landed on Griffo's heart
and got two severe punches on the ear.
Dime led, Griffo landing both right and
left. Dime rallied and got in two punches
on Griffo's breast. Griffo landed twice.
Dime looked sick.
Round 6— Dime opened with his left and
missed twice. Dime got in on a recovery
and Griffo replied with three quick left
hand punches, landiug each time on
Dime's mouth, and following up this with
three others. Dime sat down groggy.
Round 7 — Griffo led with the right for
the wind and followed with the left on the
mouth. Dime got in a right upper-cut
swung his left and missed. They sparrec
for wind until the close of the round with
Round B—The8 — The last round opened with
Dime leading for Griffo's wind, in which
he got a terrilic smash on the jaw. Griffo
dodged a left-hander and got caught with
the right. Dime led again, but missed, and
was nearly floored by a left-hand punch in
the jaw. Dim-e got in two right-handera
on Griffo's head ju^t as the gong sounded.

Death of Slrkfls, the Inventor.
Kansas City, March 8. — Frederick E.
Sickels. aged 76 years, the inventor of the
Corliss engine, died in his office this after
noon from heart disease. Among his many
inventions was the Sickels automatic trip
steam cutoff, which revolutionized the
steam-engine of the world. He was born
in Camden, N. J. He was employed by
the Union Pacific Railroad.
To Be Shot for Cowardice.
City of Mexico, March 8. — Lieutenant-
Colonel Vosquein was sentenced by the
court-martial to be shot for cowardice in
the Yaqui campaign. It is claimed that
his action caused the death of a number of
Diversion of Actors.
The death of Howell Osborne serves to
recall to the minds of the many the curious
escapades in which Osborne and Fay Tem
pleton engaged in Paris. One night they
were so much annoyed by a boozy hack
man that they shut him up in his vehicle,
and then, mounting the box together, they
drove wildly up and down the boulevards.
This, however, was> not as exciting as Nat
Goodwin's experience. In a moment of
exuberance he mounted a horse and gal
loped madly down the Cbamps Elysees, fol
lowed by an army of infuriated gendarmes.
Nat didn't care a cent. He'd have been
palloping still if his horse hadn't jumped
over the hedge in front of the Tuilenes and
landed Nat in a circular bed of fleurs-de-lis.

ABOUT TIDAL WAVES.
A River Can Produce Them as "Well an
Ocean at Times.
"Apropos of the Atlantic tidal wave of
last Friday," said an ancient mariner, ''an
account of one nearer home might be of
interest at this time. It isn't necessary to
have an ocean of water to produce one of
these waves by long odds. Old Lake
Michigan could" get up a prime article in
that line and show Chicago a few things
heretofore unthought of.
"All that would be necessary would be
an earthquake in the lake, and then there
would be from six to ten feet of water here
in no time. The story that I started to
tell you has an earthquake as the prime
cause, a tidal wave as an immediate effect,
and a ruined town as the result.
R"New Madrid, Mo., was destroyed by the
t Hsreat Hiiaki.v as it was called, in the year
1811. The whole Mississippi Valley "was
affected. The center of violence was at
Little Prairie, near New Madrid. The
vibrations were felt over the Ohio Valley
as hisjh up as Pittsburg. New Madrid
suffered more than any other town on the
"At that time Indians were dangerous,
and the persons engaged in carrying prod
uce in boats to New Orleans kept in com
pany for mutual defense. In the middle
of the night of December ltJ there was a
terrible shock and jarring of the boats so
that the crews were all awakened and hur
i ried on dt-ck, thinking of an Indian at
j tack. The noise and commotion were
j dreadful, but soon stopped.
"In the morning loud roaring and hissing
were heard, and there was a tremendous
boiling up of the waters of this Mississippi
in huge swells, tossing the boats about so
violently that the men were thrown about
on the decks. The water of the river
changed to a reddish hue, then became
j black with mud thrown up from the
bottom, while the surface, lashed by the
agitation of the earth beneath, was cov
ered with foam, which, gathering into
masses the size of the barrel, floated along
on the trembling surface.
"The earth opened in wide fissures, and
closing again threw the water, sand and
mud in hu>:e jets higher than the tops of
the trees. The atmosphere was rilled with
a thick vapor of gas. At New Madrid sev
« boats were carried by the great waves
i the bank of the river just above the
n, and were left high and dry a con
rable distance from the water.
Many boats were wrecked on the snags,
while others were sunk on or stranded on
the sand bur< and islands. The scene for
several days during the repeated shocks
were horrible. The sulphurated gases
discharged tainted the air. with noxious
effluvia and so strongly impregnated the
water of the river for 160 miles below that
it could hardly be used for any purpose for
"New "Madrid, which stood on a bluff
twenty feet above the summer floods, sank
so low that the next rise covered it to a
depth of five feet. The bottoms of several
lakes in the vicinity were elevated, and
have since been planted with corn. Peo
ple lived along the river in those days
more than in the country, .-o the big water
disturbance did probably more damage
than the 'shakes' where there was no water.
So you can easily Bee how there can be a
tidal wave without an ocean, and that we
may have one of our own some day.
"When it comes it should be a good one, so
those Eastern people will be satisfied we
did not manufacture it to get even." — Chi
THE GREEK HOUNDS.
Xenophon Furnishes a .Catalogue of
Forty-Seven Names for Dogs.
As to color Xenophon shares our modern
prejudice; he dislikes whole-colored
hounds, all black, all tan, all white, and
I y>refers the colors mixed. With the proper
', shape, good color, good nose and plenty of
! tongue you can make a good pack and
1 hope to* kill a hare. Breed your puppies
j in the spring, is his advice, and do not
overfeed them; train them by taking them
out in a leash to follow the old hounds on
a line of scent, and if you have a spirited
! puppy do not let him go away in view of a
i hare, or he will over-exert himself and do
himself an injury.
Would the reader like a li«t of Greek
hound name?? Xenophon will furnish
him with a catalogue of forty-seven, most
of which rlow naturally into an English
equivalent-- Active, Bustler, Uavager, Key
; eler. Cheerful and the like. "Give your
j hounds short names," he says, "that it
may be easy to call them." Accordingly,
the" names which he leaves to us are, with
'■ out exception, dissyllabic; for the Greek
ear was not alive to the merits of the dactyl
, in hound nomenclature, and we look in
vain for such a name as Agselos. But we
1 find, at all events, Hebe in his list — a name
which after 2000 years still does duty in
our English kennels. — Macmillan's Maga

WHY YOU HAVE
first— Tot Have Skin Disease Be-
cause It Is Hereditary With You.
Second— You Have Skin Disease Be-
cause Yon Have Acquired It.
You are not to blame if you have a skin or
blood disease that is hereditary. You are to
blame if you don't put your general system in
a condition to cure it. If you have a skin dis-
ease that is acquired then you are to blame.
All skin diseases, whether acquired or hered-
itary, are due to the lack of proper cleanliness
and attention to the organs of digestion and
the laws of nature.
If you allow your digestion to become im-
paired and your blood thin and impoverished
you are furnishing food for blood and skin dis-
eases. If you allow your liver to become torpid
and the secretions to accumulate in it then
you are inviting blood and skin diseases. If
you allow your bowels and kidneys to perform
their functions improperly then you invite
diseases of the skin and blood. Joy's Vegetable
Parsaparilla cures all diseases of the blood
and skin by nourishing the system, making
pure the blood, regulating the bowels.
