CONFESSES PLOT IN MURDER.
Tulsa, Okla., Oct. 5.The Reuter
murder case, one of the most sensa
tional in the records of Tulsa, was
called in court today and it is ex
pected the trial will get under way
the first of next week. Charles
Reuter, a lawyer, formerly of Peoria,
111., was murdered in his home in
the west residence section of this city
on teh night of May 5 last. The po
lice investigation resulted in indict
ments for murder being returned
against Mrs. Laura M. Reuter, wid
ow of the slain man, and Guy D.
Mackenzie, "Dud" Bellew and Joewilderness
Baker. Belew is alleged to have con
fessed that the motive for the mur
der was "love, revenge and robbery,"
though -declaring at the same time
that the wife had no knowledge
that her husband was to be killed
Mrs. Reuter is confident of acquittal,
and public sentiment now appears
to be strong in her favor.

FOOD OF EUROPEAN PEASANTS
Mang Are the Substitutes for read
ton by Poorer Classes of 4
In various parts of tho world tho
poorer classes consume little or no
bread, the London Olobe observes.
Baked loaves of bread are practically
unknown In portions of southern Aus
tralia and Italy and throughout the
agricultural districts of Roumania.
Austrians aver that In the village of
Obersteirmark, not very far from
Vienna, bread is never seen. The staple
food is sterz, a kind of porridge made
from ground beechnuts, taken at
breakfast with fresh or curdled milk,
at dinner with broth or fried lard and
at supper with milk. This dish is
also called helden and Is substituted
for bread not only in the Austrian dis
trict mentioned but in Carinthia and
other parts of the Tyrol.
Northern Italy offers a substitute
for bread in the form of polenta, which
Is-a kind of porridge made of boiled
grain. Polenta is not, however, al
lowed to granulate like Scotch por
ridge or the Austrian sterz. It is In*
stead boiled into a solid pudding,
which is cut up and portioned out with
a string. It is eaten cold as often as
it is hot and is In every sense an
Italian's daily bread.
There Is a variation of polenta call
ed mamaliga, the favorite food of the
poorer classes In Roumania. Mamaliga
resembles polenta inasmuch as it Is
made of boiled grain, but it Is unlike
the former in one respectthe grains
are not permitted to settle into a solid
mass, but are kept distinct after the
fashion of oatmeal porridge.
LEARNED CHIVALRY IN WILDS
Men of the Frontier Spontaneous In
Their Tribute to Woman Met in
James Oliver Curwood, author of
"The Flower of the North," tells the
following story about the men to be
found in the country about Hudson
Bay, where the scene of his story is
"I was at Prince Albert," he says,
"sitting on the veranda of the little
old Windsor hotel, facing the Sas
katchewan. During the few days
previous a number of factors, trap
pers and half-breed canoemen had
come down from the north. One of
these men had not been down to the
edge of civilization for seven years.
Three of the others had not been
down in two, and this was the annual
trip of the other eightfor there were
just eighteen of us sitting there togeth
"We were smoking and talking
when a young woman turned up the
narrow walk leading to the veranda.
Immediately every voice was hushed,
and as the woman came up the steps
those twelve roughly cjad men of the
rose to their feet to a man,
each holding his cap in his hand. Thus
they stood, silent and with bowed
heads, until the young woman had
passed into the hotel. It was the most
beautiful tribute to womanhood I had
ever seen. And I, the man from civil
ization, was the only one who' re
mained sitting, with my hat still on
my head."Pittsburg Chronicle-Tele
Seven Daughters Enough.
Rev. John W. Cavanaugh, president
of Notre Dame college, tells of a
priest who was giving a lecture on the
evil of great wealth. In the audience
was a man the priest knew. The man
was the father of seven girls, and the
lecturer pointed to this man as an

"I will ask you, Mr. Sheldon, who
do you think is the happier?" said
tho priest, pointing to the subject of

Pew Wealthy Japanese.
A Japanese periodical has completo
ed a list of all the subjects of the
mikado who may be reckoned among
the wealthy, and it shows that only
1,018 Japanese possess a capital ol
$250,000 or more. Nevertheless, If the
Japanese are, generally speaking,
poor, it would seem that they are rap
idly becoming rich, for less than ten
years ago there seem to have been
only 441 who possessed a capital of
quarter of a million dollars.
Philosopher on Marriage.
Aocording to Herbert Spencer, love
between man and woman arises from
each serving as the representative of
the other's ideal. This ideality must
be preserved if love is to remain, and
to insure its preservation there should
be not less, but greater, regard for ap
pearances between husband and wife
than between any other people. Equal
ity of rights should also be recognized.
A man cannot regard as his type of
the ideal one whom he tries to com
mand, and whom he has lowered by
denying an equality of privilege with
Divided Old Island.
Windmill island ocoupled a position
in the Delaware river between Phila
delphia and Camden. A channel that
was cut through the island for the
passage of ferryboats divided it. One
half was afterward known as Smith's
island, the property having been
acquired by a family of that name. It
was on Smith's island that the resort
known as Ridgway Park was located.
Both islands were removed by the
government for the purpose of deep
ening the channel in 1894.
Thoughts on Education.
Educated people are often so stupid
as to, make on doubt whther the
poor can gain all by education. But,
on the other hand, uneducated people
are often so wise that we fear they
have something to lose, even if they
have nothing to gain, by being edu
cated. In short, the modern methods
of political reform, even when they
have done well, have not done so ob
viously well that It is certain to be a
benefit to extend them.
Women's Valuable Thoughts.
Among the first American patents
taken out by women were those for

process of making horseshoes which
saved the country $25,000,000 In four
