Good Things that
Vassar Girls Eat
The total quantity ot milk consumed nt
Vassar College during tho year is from 90,000
to 100,000 quarts. Say that, at this season ot
tho year, a cow will averago ten quarts daily,
bo that tho students take tho daily product of
10,000 cows. But this does not represent all
the cows needed to supply tho college. About
16,000 pounds of butter are used in a year.
In tho matter of eggs, think for a moment
of tho demand made by tho 400 students.
They need about 95,000 oggs. In other
Words, it would take a nlmblo-fingerod man,
picking eggs from a bin, nearly a week to
count out enough for Vassar College.
Tho most important item in tho Vassar book
bf table expenses is meat, and under this head
inciudo beef, mutton, poultry, and gamo.
rhc, amount consumed is, in round numbers.
DS.000 pounds. Tho refrigerated beef comes
principally from Chicago, whilo tho supply of
bthcr meats and poultry is. drawn from tho
fcountry near by. Tho steward selects only
tho choicest cuts, xnus mo meat at nssar is
fexceptionnlly good and tender, although mis
takes occur, as they often do in the best regu
lated families. The supply of chickens and
turkeys is liberal around Thanksgiving and
) Another important item is flour. The quan
tity of grain raised on tho farm is compara
tively small. Tho amount of flour required
Is 63,000 pounds, or 350 barrels, a year. Only
the higher grades of flour are used, and this,
together with tho baker's skill, accounts for
ktie excellence of Vassar bread. Tho muffins,
rolls, cakes, and pics aro made n the prem
ises in a well-appointed bakery by experienced
And yet tho students huvo quite a number

nnd 20.000 bananas were furnished to the
ptrls. To this should be added 1,800 pounds
of nuts, 200 bottles of pickles, nnd 2i0 quart
jars of olives. Tho taste for olives ma- bo
acquired, but with tho Vassar girl it comes
naturally after the freshman year. Don't
forget, cither, tho 500 pounds of caramels
usod at tho college. Of coarse, this doesn't
Include tho boxes sen by big brothers and dear
If there is one moro than caramels that tho
Vassar student yearn for it is pancakes. You
may laugh.but it is the solid fact. The quantity
of pancakes consumed at the college is enor
mous. Tho gnddlo is ten feet long nnd three
wide. Tho Va3sar pancake has a turn and
brown that is peculiarly its own. About 2,200
cakes uro consumed at break fast.
Some of tho other articles furnished during
the school year may here bo given in round
figures. Sugar is required to tho extent of
S0.000 pounds. Some of tnls goes to sweeten
3,000 pounds of coffee nnd 1,200 pounds of tea.
Tew things need swettening while the girls
Then there is the item of canned vegetables,
Which amounts id a year to somo 6,000 cans.
N.0 fewer than 23.000 oysters and clams aro
required, and not far from 6,000 pounds of
dried fruit. To this must be added bags of
salt, bottles of oil, vinegar, and mustard, etc.
Nor should I forget to mention incidentally
that the Vnssor giris'consumo largo quanti
ties of food in their on rooms just what
amount no one has eer been able to find out.
The larks in" collego life are tho jolly
'spreads," which are supposed not to bo held
at all. One day the word i3 whispered round
among a select few to meet in Miss So-and-So's
At the nppolnted hour the girls put in an
appearance: one brings n bottle of pickles,
another a iar of jam. a third sugar, and soon.
liooks and papers are swept off tho table,
pretty chinn dishes take their place, and in a
few minutes the bright brass kettlo is singing
right merrily. Such a spread is all tho more

MILLS ENDS THE DEBATE
Talk On the Tariff Will Hereafter Be
Directed to the Schedule.
STRONGLY FAVORS INCOME TAX
Texan Senator Sail if He had Hit Way De
bate Would Be limited and the Measure
Faned in Forty-night Hours Congratu
lations of His Colleague.
At 1 o'clock yesterday the tariff bill was
laid bforo the Senate and Senator Mills, of
Texas, was recognized. There was a good
attendance in the galleries and a number of
Representatives from tho other House wore
present. Among thoo in the gallery wcro
Mrs. Mills and Mrs. Charles Mills. Senator
Mills at tho outset declared that legislators
often had to make an election between two
parliamentary measures, neither of which
meets their approval. It must necessarily bo
so, for no man could fraue a measure to
meet tho approval of every ono. Every act
of a legislature must be a compromise moas
ure and no act moro so than one regulating
"This bill does not meet my approval,"
said ho, "and I doubt if it entirely meets the
approval of any gentleman on this side of tho
Chamber. But such as it Is it will have my
lie might wish to offer some amendments
to tho bill, he continued, but whether or not
ho was able to secure their adoption he would
bow to tho will of the majority of his party
and vote for tho measure as they ordained It
should be. It was strictly a party measure
and had been a party measure from the foun
dation of tho government and from the foun
dation and organization of tho Democratic
party. If ho had been chosen to construct
this bill and had had tho forty-four members
on tho Democratic side of tho cham
ber In accord with his views, bo
would have constructed it on far different
lines. Ho would not have left coffee and tea
on tho free list and put cotton, wool, coal and
iron on the dutiable list. It had always been
tho policy of the Democratic party to put a
tax on thoo articles which were used by all the
people and would yield tho largest revenue at
the smallest cost to the people. Tho Repub
lican promise of an enlarged homo market by
n high protective tariff bad not been fulfilled.
A lively discussion occurred Between
Messrs. Mills and Aldrich, the latter asking
why Great Britain had the cotton yarn mar
ket of tho world if we could make it cheaper.
Mr. Mills replied that the climate entered
into the manufacture of cotton yarn, and tho
climate of Oreat Britain was better suited to
it than that of France, Germany or the United
States. He stated the labor cost of kid gloves
in tho United States to bo less than in France,
and Senator Aldrich asked him why we im
ported gloves from France. Ue replied that
it might be for lack of skill to mako gloves as
well as tho Trench. Thero were somo things
in which ono country could not compete with
other countries under natural conditions, but
wo could do more in this country than almost
any other country. Ho relatod an incident of
tho Franco-Prussian war, in which a French
woman uonsted that her countrymen could
mako a thing of beauty out of the uglieU
thing. An old German general, plucking a
gray hair from his head, handed it to tho
French woman and challenged her to make
anything beautiful out of it. She took tho
hair and sent it to a French jeweler, telling
him of the challenge, and appealed to him to
redeem it. Ho manufactured a pin, in which
he laid the hair held in the beak of a German
war eagle, nnd hanging from it were Alsaco
nml Lorraine, with the words, "lou hold It
by a hair." So she redeemed her promise.
Mr. Mills devoted n largo part of his spooch
to a discussion and defense of the income
tax. He lauded the action of tho Committee
in reporting a tax on incomes. Why should
wealth not be taxed? Tho object of all just
government was to secure to all its subjects
all the rights with which they were endowed
by nature, and protection in tho enjoyment
of those rights in which they were guaran
teed by their government. Every animal in
nature was prodded with means for its de
fense; tho horse bad a hoof, the cow had a
horn, tho serpent had a sting, the cat had a
claw. Man had bis arms. Take a man who
possesses little and he wants little from the
government. Why should ho be weighed
down and worried to death by taxes on
things necessary for life? When people aro
associated togetuer lor tneir government ana
mutual protection every citizen of that gov
ernment should eontributo his proper share
to tbo support of tho government and the
proper share of each is to bo determined by
tho amount of protection ho receives. The
bill had been called sectional; it was said
that tbo southern nnd western states have to
pay all together only one-third of tho tar,
whilo tho New England states paid two-thirds
of it. "But if those states received two-thirds
of tho protection of tho government," de
clared Mr. Mills, "why In the name of heaven
and nil the angels should they not pay two
thirds of the expenses?"
"I am no communist, nor anarchist," he
said. "More, I know tho difference between
tho man who owns a million dollars and the
man who does not own a cent, and I would
protect the man with a million dollars in tho
enjoyment ol his property as 1 would call out
tho military in order that tho hair of the
head of an innocent, littlo babo should not
"I would like to know," ho went on. "on
what principle tho owners of these millions
insist that they should not be taxed. He
dwelt upon the many instances in which the
might of tho government had been called out
to protect tho wealth of corporations and in
di iduals. Ho recalled the fact that a few
ycara ago when there was nnother panic, a
panic by anticipation, when tho wholo power
of tho great ttate of Pennsylvania was not
sufficient to protect property In tho city of
Pittsburg from the crowds in the streets who
were firing the buildings, and the soldiers of
tho United States had been summoned to pro
tect the city and were set to guard tho rail
roads. And tho railroads have never paid
n cent for their protection," said Mr. Mills.
"I ask, is that just; is that honest; is that fair
to the taxpayers? Look at all the stocks and
bonds and banks nnd trust companies which
do not pay a cent for their protection."
He said that the opponents of tho income
tax said it was inquisitorial, anarchistia,
socialistic, and every other adjective which
could be framed, to levy a tax of 2 per cent,
on incomes, but when a poor fellow wants a
shirt and is taxed 100 per cent for it, nothing
is said about its being socialistic and an
archistic Tor Another Cabinet Officer.

scarlet-frilled hood tied around her fresh,

on her way home to Hosea Harkins, the

New Yobk, April 21 The long expected

TOO LATE FOR REPARATION
William McGarraban Expires Still
Fighting for His Famous Claim.
STORY OP CRUEL DELAYS
When Victory Seemed Nearest, the Grim
Eeaper Took a Hand in the Contest He
Was Oood Natnred and Buoyant to the
Lait Story of His life.
William McGarrahan, the celebrated claim
ant to the now Idrla mine, died at Providence
hospital at 11.45 a, m. yesterday.
Death was duo to a complication of diseases,
which began to show their effect about a yea,
ago. Dropsy developed a few dayssincer
and after that ho sank rapidly until doath
For the past quarter of a century Mr. 3IcGarra
han has been one ot the most familiar figures
about the National Capitol. Ho was the claimant
for the Mexican land grant in Southern Califor
nia known as tho ltancho Panocho Urando, and
had been prosecuting tho claim in tho courts, tho
departments, and Congress for tho past thlrtr
llro years, and the history of his efforts to secure
what ho and his friends believe was his by right,
would mako a story as thrilling as a novel.
31cUarrohan camo Into possession of the claim
In lS5ti through purchase from the original
granteo, paying 811,000 lor it There was a vast
tract of land, but It was mountainous, and at
that timo tho agricultural and mineral possibili
ties of that part of California weru not known.
Soon afterMcGurrahan mado his purchase the
New Idrla quicksilver mines wore discovered
on the grant, and It was not a great whilo before
tho mlno was found to bo one of tho most valua
ble deposits of this mineral In the world.
The locators of the mlno refused to recognize
McUarrahan's right to the proportr. Ue took
tho matter to the courts, whore he received two
confirmations of his title, but tho New Idrla peo
ple still resisting, he appealed to the Interior
department at Washington during tne nrst
administration of President Lincoln who, after
hl3 Secretary of the Interior had twlco ordered
patents to Issue, himself mado an examination
of the claim and passed farorably upon It.
Still thero were obstacles in the way and Mc
Garrahau appealed to Congress, hince that
time a bill for McGarrahan 's relief has been in
troduced at tho beginning of every term of Con
gress, and there have been few, it any, terms in
which he has not received a favorablo report
from tho Senato and House committees having
the bill in charge.
Tlmo and again the bill has boon passed by
the two houses, but never until the Fifty-second
Congress did it receive tho simultaneous sanc
tion of the two houses.
When the bill passed both houses In tbo Fifty
second Congress President Harrison found it
unsatisfactory in some of its details and refused
his approval The bill remodeled so as to meet
the Presldent'aobjectlons was immediately re
Introduced In both houses. It passed the Sen
ate but failed to get through tho Houso that
The bill had again passed the Senato this
Congress, and was unanimously reported by tho
Houso committee having it in charge the day
the health of the claimant broke completely,
about ten days since, rendering it necessary that
ho should be Ulen to tbe hospital.
3IcGarralion was about 67 years of age. Uo
was lKrn In Ireland, and camo to America when
a lad. Ho went to California In 1319, and went
Into business In San Francisco, wbero he was
very prosperous, being worth S250.0U0, when he
bought the Panoche Grando grant
This money ho spent iu his litigation and leg
islation, and he had been dependent upon the
kindness of his friends and thoso who believed
iu tho Justice of his claim for several years past
Ho was a bachelor and had no relations In this
Mr. McGarrahan's death is deplored at the
Capitol, whoro ho was universally known and
much esteemed. He was reinarkablo for his
uniform good nature and his buoyan: spirits.
He was a man of education and of much natural
Ue visited ths House for tho last time last

Tor Town Officers.
At a well-attended meeting of the Takoma
Park Welfare Association on Monday even
ing, tho following gentlemen wero placed In
nomination for town officers to be voted for
at tho election to be held on Monday, May 7:
S. S. Shedd, for mayor; J. H. Clark, W. W.
Dyar, G. L. Spencer, W. E. Skinner, G eorge
A. Warren and J. A. Finch, for councilmen.
Tho association has called a public meeting
for Mondny, April SO. to enable the citizens
of the park, not membera of the association,
to act on the nominations. Tho association
adopted a platform advocating certain
municipal reforms upon which its nominees
agreo to stand.
Testimony in Pension Cases.
The Houso Committoo on invalid pensions
has decided to report favorably a bill provid
ing that in tho establishment of claims for
pensions the oath of a private or non-commissioned
officer shall not havo any less
weight tban if such witnesses bad served as
u commissioned officer. The present practice
of tho department accords to tho testimony of
a commissioned officer tho same weight as to
that ot two privates.
Whilo Sophy Clare stood, pale and para
lyzed, with ono hand clinging to the laurel
branches nnd herchesnut-brown hair blowing
about her frightened face, she knew Hal
Tucker very well a good-natured, shiftless
ne'er-do-well, who lived on the proceeds of
any odd jobs ho could get-in the neighbor
hood, and had no more idcigjjl providing for
the future than It he had bfcgf the grasshop
per In Lafontaine's fable. Red the voice of
tho other man was also famffex to her as that
of ono Jeremiah Slocum, wk bore no envi
able reputation among the simple settlers of
those wild western regions. And. with a
thrill of tbe heart, sho remembered that Jeny
Slocum had been sitting by tbo night before
when Miller Harkins, who was one of the
school trustees, had paid her her month's
salary in clinking silver dollars.
"It's I they mean!" critd Sophy, out aloud.
"They mean to murder me, and all for the
sake of that wretched paltry silver! 'One
stroke of a sharp knifo, and the thing's done
and cant bo undone!' O merciful heaven!
Can it be that thero are such brutes in the
world? 'Harklns's folks goln to singing
school to-night, and the coast will bo clear!'
Oh, the peril I should have been in If I had
not been fortunate enough to overhear these
horrible words! I must hasten heme at once
and tell Mr. Harkins. But, oh, if I should
chance to meet these ruffians on the road
She stood still and listened, but no sonnd
greeted her ears other than the rush ot the
wind in tbe tree tops overhead and the mur
mur of the river below and the wild beating
of her own heart
HO HEWS FROM BLUEFIELDS.
Press DIspatchesvoro as Yet Unconfirmed
try Official Reports.
The State Department has bad no recent
advices from Blueflelds, so it is not possible
for the officials to affirm or deny the report
published yesterday morning that the Nica
rngnan Government has seized and sold the
property of the Nlcaraguan Canal Company,
captured a vessel bearing the American flag,
lauded troops at Blueflelds, and done other
But as Greytown is within easy reach ot the
cable and tho canal company naturally might
bo supposed to cherish an Interest In Its own
property, it is believed that the officers in this
country would have Informed themselves ot
tbe seizure of their works and notified the
Btate Department it such things had actually
The State Department officials do not
believe that thero has been any Illegal seizure
of an American vessel while Capt Watson,
with tho San Francisco, was at Blueflelds, and
regardless of tho movement of the Nlcaraguan
troops American interests at Blaetlelds are
believed to be secure.
Word was received at tho Navy Department
yesterday that tho United States steamship
Han Francisco had sailed from Port Llmon for
Blueflelds. The vessel had run down from
Blueflelds to Port Limon to cable tbo Navy
Department touching the state of affairs at
Blueflelds. A voluminous report from Mr.
Braida, late United States consul to Grey
town, bus been received by Secretary Grcsham.
Tho Department has not yet gathered suffi
cient Information to make a satisfactory
response to tho Senate resolution calling for
an account of the late troubles and the exist
ing conditions at Blueflelds.
The Indiana's Trial Postponed.
Secretary Herbert has declined to permit
the battleship Indiana to go on her accept
ance trial on the 30th Instant as. the builders
requested. Mr. Cramp had another Interview
with tho Secretary yesterday on the subject,
and after Mr. Jaques, the representative of
tho Bethlehem Steel Company, had made a
statement relative to tbe progress of the work
on the armor, it was decided that the trial
should be postponed until the ship la fitted
with her side armor, a matter of six weeks or

home. I can't stay here in the forest all
nignt, tnongn, pernaps, tne perns irom wna
beasts would be less than the dangers from
my own kind!"
And flying in desperate haste through tho
gloomy paths, whoro tho flrst faint silver rays
of sunlight were beginning to irradiate the
scarcely visible way, she came at last in sight
of the old stone mill by tho waterfall, with the
long, low dwelling of the Horkinses at its side,
all shining with welcome lights.
"Supper's b'en ready this half hour," said
Mrs. Harkins, a lean, fretful female," who
always wore a snnbonnet Winter or Snm
mer, indoors or out, and shuffled around the
houso In flapping carpet slippers. "You're
late, ain't you, Miss Clare? And, good land
alive, how pale you be!"
"I I walked very fast," said Sophy, with
a convulsive catching of the breath and turn
ing paler than ever as sho saw, lounging on
the woodon settle, Just within tho hugo stone'
chimney, the very man whose voice she had
heard half an hour ago In the twilight woods
Hal Tucker himself I
Involuntarily sho drew back, falling almost
into the arms of honest Hosea Harkins him
self, who had just come in from the mill, with
his working clothes on, and his hair and eye
lashes powdered over with flour.
"Hel-lo!" said that worthy. "You alnt a
goln' to faint away, be you, Miss Sophy?"
But spirit and courage had come back to the
Yankee school ma'am once again. Sho drew
herself up and pointed to the lurking vaga
bond on ths wide, wooden settle.

And she pointed straight at Hal Tueker.
"Eh?" said tho miller, his eyes more like
over-ripe gooseberries than ever.
"Eh!" echoed Mr. Tucker himself, coming
upright, all in a heap, like a jointed doU.
"I heard him plotting in the woods this

Sophy Clare sat down on the old patch
work-covered lounge, with a burst of relieved
laughter that was almost hysterical The
miller clapped his hands on his thigh with a
force that surrounded him with an aureole
ot flour dust. Mrs. Harkins smiled grimly
under the shadow of tho sunbonnet, and the
children, one and all, set up a howl ot de
precation over the fate of their beloved,
"Mr. Tucker," said Sophy Clare as soon as
sho was able to regain command over her
voiee.'l "don't tako poor little SDowflako
away! I will pay her valuo to these good
people for tho sako of tbe relief I now feel.
And the children shall not lose their pet."
"It's only a lamb!" said Miller Harkins,
who did not know what sentiment was
"But it's the children's darling," pleaded
And so Bnowflake's lito was saved and
Sophy Clare's fright all went for. nothing.
But she could never pass Jeremiah Slocum
afterward without a shudder. And the very
sound of Hal Tucker's voice speaking in the
twilight was enough to blanch her cheek.
