Something for Careless Mothers to Read
The Danger of Flirtation-Comment of
the Wise-Spiders on the Watch for
(From a Sermon by Dr. Talmage.)
In a Pullman sleeper the other night
I watched an affecting parting between
a young woman and her sweetheart.
She was a bouncing maiden of the Daisy
Millerr type-he an insignificant looking
young dude with caterpillar colored
fuzz on his upper lip and a hat two or
three sizes too small for his small head.
The agony of parting almost overcame
them. Their sweet sorrow was long
drawn out. Their lips clung together
in many long kisses, while he whispered
airy nothings in her ear and embraced
her repeatedly, and she wept andsobbed
into her freshly ironed handkerchief.
The eyes of every one in the car were
upon them, and cynical and ecoffing re
marks were plenty. At last they tore
The eastern bound express rolled out
of the depot, the passengers settled
. themselves for the journey and the
young Pullman conductor made his first
appearance with great brilliancy and
eclat. How it happened I cannot tell,
for my thoughts were busy elsewhere,
-bta eralittle I raised my eyes and
Jol -Oholly" was forgotten. Daisy's
team were dried and she was conducting,
according to the best knowledge and
most anthentic rules of the game, a suc
ceesful flirtation with the young con
ductor. She giggled, she made eyes,
she frowned prettily, .she was so charm
ingly helpless about the window, she
- must have water and oranges, and the
dickens knows what, and the railway
fledgeling was at her beck and call.
Next morning the flirtation made per
ceptible progress. Daisy went to break
fast with gilt buttons and blue clothes,
and what there was inside of them. She
donned her ulster and the big flaring
Gainaborough and went out and rode
upon the platform "to look at the
scenery," which consisted mainly of flat
meadows, freshly plowed, and was ac
cordinly of surpassing beauty. She
tlkedas thetopof her lungs, and in
formed the other passengers that now
she guessed she'd better wash her hands,
and anon she guessed she'd have a pil
low. This being brought, she made
grtat use of it for the further subjuga
tion of the unhappy conductor, for,
taking it, she posed upon it such effec
tive attitdes as to win glances of ap
proval and speeches of admiration from
the infatuated, hopelessly besotted
youth. In fact, for several hundred
miles Daisy formed the staple amuse
ment for a car full of passengers.
Being delayed for several hours in an
out-of-the-way town on the following
day, I watched the gradual unfolding of
mnother sudden attachment. Daisy the
second was also traveling alone. She
wasa preaty girl, but bad a look of
bease, full bloom coquetry-in her eyes.

to know better, a man with wrinkled
facs and blase eyes, made her a ' nt

BILL NYE ON POSTMASTERS.
He Used to Be One Himself, and He
Knows the Ropes.
(From the New York World.)
The New York postoffice is a large,
dignified building, situated right where
the roads fork; being the place where you
turn off to the right from the main
traveled road in order to get to the
bridge. It is used partly for a postoffice
and partly for court house, so that one
end of the building practically pays the
expenses of the other end. A sel sup
porting postoffice and court house here,
where competition is hot and rents high,
would naturally show that times are good
and money plenty.
Mail comes here from all foreign
countries and Europe also. It is distri
buted at once, and one is permitted to
mail a letter at any time, day or night.
It's wonderful. In tall buildings now
there is an arrangement by which one
may shoot his letters into a runaway or
flume, and they will be carried into a
United States mail box on the ground
floor, where a trustworthy young man m
a speckled straw helmet comes and fills
his valise with them, after which he
carries them away to the postoffice and
personally uses his influence with the
postmaster to have them sent away by the
I stood near the small box at the
bottom of the chute in the Standard Oil
building the other day, and I remained
there 10 or 15 minutes I counted forty
nine letters as they were laid, one by one,
hot from the crackling typewriters above,
and all no doubt reeking with the bloody
and startling statement, coming like a
peel of thunder from an unpeeled sky,
"Dear Sir-Your esteemed favor of the
-th inst.(or ult. or prox.) is before me.
In reply would say," etc. There's just
about as much use in this opening as
there would be in stating that "We take
our pen in hand," or in opening aprayer
by reading the minutes of the previous
The New York postoffice is directly
connected with the dead letter office at
Washington, and those who have never
corresponded with that prosperous
mdrgne have missed a good deal.
The dead letter office is, after all, a
great boon, though it does not return
come things which reach it. A man in
Saginaw, Mich., mailed a pair of dress
shields by mistake which he had bought
for his wife, and though that was two
years ago come July they have never
been returned. Another man in Nash
ville, Tenn., erronerously mailed a
porous plaster which was almost as good
as new, and though he has threatened to
go down there to Washington and iden
tify it and expose the whole system of
the dead letter office till he got his prop
erty back, nothing as yet been done
Ten years ago, even, there were 3,000,
000 letters sent to the dead letter office
in one year, of which 58,000 had no
county or state, 400,000 lacked stamps,
and 3,000 were posted without any ad
dress at all. Ninety-two thousand dol
lars in cash and over $3,000,000 in drafts
were contained in these letters. It ap
pears that right straight through every
letter sent to the dead letter office con
tains on an average $1, so mine really
fell below the average.
Queer things happen to letters even
when they do not get to Washington.
A Wyoming postmaster used to claim
that circular letters, unsealed, if not
called for with a day or two, were good
things to use in starting the fire. He
therefore kepta coal hod near the general
delivery, whchonstituted alittleprivate
dead letter offce for his own special use.
One day his children were playing tag
with each other inside the postoffce and
canceling each other's nose with the M.
0. B. stamp, when suddenly they deci
ded to investigate the coal hod in search
of advertising cards. In each of the two
lrecircular envelopes they found a
salrsealed letter which had worked
in by shoving a large mass of letters to
gether for cancellation. The children
had torn these two letters ope and were
playing Fourth of July and Baly Bound
the Flag, Boys, with a $79 check and a
$600 draft when the old gentleman looked
up. Justice compels me to say, however,
that he spanked the children soundly for
his careleanea and refused to let them
have fun with his dead letter offie after

Dr. Tanner's Rival.
R~cINE, Wis., July 10.-A large num
ber of people visited John Zschar, the Cal

last three days, his eyes have a tired look,
the lids droop, and his voice is very weak.
He still has strength enough to walk from
the house.to the tree, under which he can
be found at any hour of the day.. There
he dozes off, sleeping but a short time.
He appears to suffer no pain.
Dr. Noyes says that he found Zachar's
pulse at forty-five, his tongue clear and his
mind apparently unclouded. The doctor
believes that his fast is genuine. Dr. Hay
says that the case possesses no value what
ever to science, as there is not proof that
9:ahar had not eaten food during the last
fifty-one days. Zachar's relatives, how
ever, insist that he has not partaken of food
of any nature.
A Horrible Grave Robbery.
CHAwMnEsBUnG, Pa., July 12.--A hor
rible grave robbery was committed on
Tuesday night at Mowersville, a few miles
from here. The grave desecrated was that
of a wealthy farmer named Hoover, who
died nearly two years ago. Over the grave
a handsome monument, weighing 2.000
pounds, had been placed. This was under
mined and partly moved, the grave opened
and the coffn dragged out. The face of
the corpse was badly mutilated by a crow
bar used in breaking open the coffin. The
object was plunder, as Mr. Hoover had
been wealthy and eccentric, and it was re
ported that a large sum of many had been
buried with him in his coffin. The thieves
carried away the heavy silver plate and
handles of the cesket, but left the body.
A heavy reward will be offered for their

"Where are our boys?" frantically shrieks
an exchange. We can tell: Ours has just

be home before dark.
The congregation was dismissed, and,
as usual, a company of women were stand

the group approached, saying, "A&ren't

DEMOCRATIC UNITY IN NEW YORK.
Good Chances for a Settlement of All Ap
Nnw YoRK, July 9. -The question of
local Democratic unity is just now the
)vershadowing political topic. A Mayor,
Board of Aldermen and county officers
re the bone of contention. Tammany
Hall, which has not had a Mayor of its own
for these many years, insists that this is a
good year for their wigwam to name the
candidate. The aspect is entirely different
through county Democracy spectacles.
That organizations declares that it is strong
enough to elect its Individual candidate,
with both Tammany and Republican tick
ets in the field. The leaders complain that
Tammany with the $50,000 a year shrieval
ty, County Clerkship (worth nearly as
much) Presidency of the Board of Alder
men and various other local offices, already
has more than its due share of the official
plums. All these they are willing to con
cede to Tammany in this year's partition,
but when it comes to the Mayoralty they
emphatically draw the line.
The Star has been industriously sound
ing the opinions of the leaders in both or
ganizations on this matter, particularly
with reference to its possible effect on the
the city vote for the National ticket. Va
rious views have been advanced.
Some of the best known of the local pol
iticians, of both Tammany and the counties,
warmly advocate local unity, no matter to
whom the prizes may go. Two Democratic
tickets in the field, they say, would have a
dispiriting effect on the outside Democracy,
and would end in trades and dickers which
could do the National ticket no good. This
seems also to be the generally accepted
view outside of New York, where these
little factional differences are watched with
the same interest as here, and for obvious
Yet there are not wanting astute political
managers who take a radically different
view of the matter, and are just as em
phatic in their advocacy of separate tickets.
To begin with they assert, and with entire
truth, that local Democratic success will
not be imperriled by seperate tickets, as
the voting strength of either organization is
far in excess of that of the Republicans.
Their argument, though, rests mainly on
the claim that rival Democratic tickets
would put the two evenly balanced organ
izations on their mettle as nothing else
could, and bring to the polls thousands of
voters who might otherwise absent them
selves. They scout the idea that there
would be any trading of the Presidential
ticket, but insist that it would gain ma
terially by reason of the fuller vote. In
support of their claims they refer to the
State election of three years ago.. Each of
the factions had full local tickets in the
field at that time and the alarmists declared
that Gov. Hill would be caught between
the two and traded to death. The con
trary proved to be true, as he polled a
magnificent vote. Whichever way the
local Democratic cat may jump there will
be cold comfort for the Republicans in the
Empire State. The sporting "brother
hood" are offering two to one to that the
State will be Democratic and that Cleve
land and Thurman will be elected. Even
at these odds the offer has few takers.
New of Indiana. who with Dudley seems
to have been almost entirely responsible for
Harrison's nomination, came to town yes
terday, and the local bosses have had their
heads together all day. Rama says that
Banker Morton has given out to the man
agers that his big "bar'l" will positively
not be put on tap unless his friends are en
trusted with the engineering of the cam
paign. Morton is said to have an intense
dislike for New and the Indiana type of
Republicans. He pins his faith to Steve
Elkins, as Blaine did four years ago, and
that worthy political juggler is known to
sha.e his prejudices against the Indiana
contingent. Hence New's visit. Local
Republican leaders say that Elkins and
Platt will carry their point and that the
skirmishers of the Western reserve will be
told by the National Committee to take
care of their own little fences. Elkins him
self is just now invisible, and there is a
deal of current gossip about the "sulking
THE REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN.
Proceedings of the National Committee in
New Y1ork Last Night.
NEW YoRK, July 11.-The Republican
National Committee tonight oh cted M. S.
Quay, of Pennsylvania, chairman, and J.
S. Fassett, of New York, secretary.
The chairman and secretary elected
were also appointed to hold the same offices
on the executive committee.
The executive committee was chosen as
follows: M. H. DeYoung of California,
Samuel Fessenden Connecticut, George R.
Davis Illinois; John C. New Indiana, J.
S. Clarkson Iowa; W. C. Goodloe Ken
tcky, J. Manchester Haynes Maine, Gay
rett A. Hobart New Jersey, A. L. Conger
When the names of the executive com
mittee were submitted there were mani
festations of disapproval from the Southern
members, who discovered the fact at once
that Goodloe was the only representative
of the Southern States.
Thomas H. Cavanaugh, of Washington
Territory, made a speech claiming the
right of the Southern States to a better rep
resentation on the executive committee.
His sentiments were echoed by James D.
Brady, of Virginia, and H. B. S. Pinch
back, of Louisiana.
After a long debate the names sulbmitted
by the committee were adopted as members
of the executive comimittee. The 5th sec
tion, which related to the appointment of
sub-committees to have charge of the cam
paign in the Pacific States and Territories,
was next discussed, and the whole matter
was finally left withe the executive com
mittee to act upon.
Mr. Goodloe offered a resolution endors

which was adopted, as was also one by Mr.
Payne concerning the organization of wo

The executive committee will hold its
first meeting tomorrow at the Fith Avenue
Hotel. It was midnight when the meeting

Willng to Kiss Mayor Hewitt.
NEW YoRKx, July 8.-Since Mayor
Hewitt has shown a desire to outdo the
great American osculator, Gen. W. Te
cumseh Sherman, no opportunity is lost by
a New Yorker to give him a chance to
gratify his new fad. A colored woman,
fully six feet tall, as broad as a hogshead
and as black as the famed ace of spades,
called at the police headquarters today.
She met Sergeant James K. Price, Inspect
3r Williams' right bower. She put her big,
hubby fore6nger on the edges of a little
buttonhole in his uniform coat and asked
n a stage whisper how much it would cost
to get married. The genial little sergeant
o(ked up at the woman in surprise, but
he did not notice the effect of her query.
"Mr. Sam Washington Clinton have won
my affections," she continued in a confi
lential vein, "and as he is poor I want to
know how much it will cost." The ser
geant told her that marriages wei e not per
ormed at police headquarters, but if she
would call upon Mayor Hewitt at City Hall
ie would be mo're than pleased to tie the
tnot. With a very solemn face the ser
leant said that the Mayor always kissed the
ride. A few days ago he had married a
luke to an American heiress, and all he
isked was a kiss, and he thought the Mayor
would perform the ceremony for her at the
sme price. The big colored Voman went
iway smiling from ear to ear, saying that
ie would give Mayor Hewitt "as many
risses as de gemman wants, sah."
It is a waste of time to look back at one's

TUMBLED THROUH THE TRESTLE.
Terrible Accident on the Virginia Midland
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., July 12.-Ex
press train No. 52 left Orange C. H., south
bound, this morning at 1.50, with Con
ductor C. P. Taylor, Engineer Watkins
and Fireman Kelly. Two miles south (,f
Orange is a trestle, forty-eight feet high,
which was known to be weak, and the
railroad c:ompauy was engaged in filling it
in. The train was moving at a speed of
six miles an hour crossing the trestle. The
engine had passed safely over most of the
trestle when the smoker, mail, baggage and
express cars went down with a crash, drag
ging down the engine and tender and two
passenger coaches. Two sleepers remained
standing ou the trestle. The engine went
down pilot end foremost, thus communi
cating no tire to the wreck. All the lights
were extinguished in the fall.
As soon as the accident occurred. the en
gineer, who was but slightly injured,
walked back to Orange and telegraphed for
assistance. Dr. W. C. N. Randolph and
other physicians left here on a special train
for the wreck.
The dead and some of the wounded were
taken to Orange, while the more seriously
hurt were brought to Charlottesville and
placed in the Cottage Hospital, hotels and
homes of friends.
As far as can now be ascertained five
were killed. C. Cox, of Alexandria, Va.,
of the engineering department of the Pied
mont Air Line, was instantly killed; H. T.
Whittington, Greensboro, N. C., postal
clerk, died in ten minutes; H. C. Bright
well, Prospect, Va., postal clerk, died after
reaching the hospital; C. Coxe, Alexandria,
killed; Eddie Smith, newsboy, killed; a
young white woman, supposed to be Annie
Brown of Philadelphia, killed; Charles
Francis, supposed to be from Baltimore,
killed;- an unknown Itailian was killed;
Dr. R. S. Torrence, Black's, S. C., killed;
S. G. Cortes, New Orleans, killed; Wish
ard Hunter, Scotland. slightly injured; J.
P. Wall, West Virginia, bruised; John
Lanslow, England, arm badly bruised; D.
V. Greelish, Augusta, Gil., shoulder dislo
cated; Mrs. Stckert, broken shoulder; -
Jones, Chatham county, Virginia, slight
injuries; W. D. Parrott, . . narle county,
Virginia, postal clerk, V4dly injured;
John Q. West and J. L. Walthall, of
Washington, D. C., postal clerks, badly
injured; Louis Jenkins, Lynchburg, Va.,
postal clerk, slightly injured; - Potter
field, press agent, seriously injured; Z.
Jennings, Lynchburg, Va., passenger, in
ternal injuries; Capt. C. P. Taylor, Alex
andria, Va., badly hurt. The number of
injured are estimated to be about twenty
The accident was due to an advanced
stage of decay of trestle timbers. The
-coroner's jury declared that the disaster
was due to no other cause. Wrecking trains
have been at work all day, and it is be
lieved that all the bodies have not been re
covered. The debris will not be removed
and the bridge replaced under several days.
Trains will go by way of Gordonsville to
Charlottesville for the present.
WASHINGTON, July 12.-0. A. Nichol
son, of Baltimore, one of the survivors of
the accident, has arrived here and relates
his experience as follows:
"It was a horrible thing, and it is a mir
acle how any one who went down in that
terrible fall escaped. It was in the dead
of night, and we had started across the
bridge when it suddenly gave away. The
engine had reached the other side, but it
was pulkd back by the falling baggage car
and fell on top. The mail car was knocked
out of recognition and the smoker was
totally demolished. I was in the sleeper
that went down. I don't know how I es
caped. When I was awakened, I looked
out and found the car hoisted in the air,
resting on the remains of cars below. The
coupling connecting us with the other
sleepers had given away, and they re
mained on the track. We went to work as~
soon as possible, though it was pitch dark,
and did our best to rescue the injured. The
scene that followed was of indescribable
horror. The shrieks and moans of the in
jured, the shouts of wildly excited passen
gers and the hissing of steam was terrible
to hear. The passenger cars were crushed
out of all shape, while the sleeper was held
high in the air by the ruins of the broken
coaches A little stream runs under the
trestle and recent rains had swollen it to
far beyond its wonted proportions. It is
feared some were pinioned below its sur
face and perished in its waters."
"How many rooms in your new house,
my dear?" inquired a good old-fashioned
mother of her daughter, who had just ac
quired a new home. ''Ten apartments
reception -room, drawing-room, dining
room, larder, cuisine, lavatory, and four
chambers, besides the attic and furnace
room," was the reply., "Dear me, how
your father gets things mixed!" exclaimed
the old lady. "He told me after he bought
the house that there was a parlor, sitting
room, dining room, pantry, kitchen, bath~
room, four bedrooms, a cellar anda

licious and healthy beverage, which after

and appetizer that is not intoxicating; pleas
ant to the taste, contains nourishment and

ly made of our celebrated world renowned
original Artesian well water. Put up in
cases of one dozen pints at $125 per dozen;
