after sunrise the moon in the western

orbs at the same time, he was deeply
impressed, and ran to his mother with :
"Oh, mamma, I'e got an awful joke
on Our Heavenly Father."
"Why, Tom, what do ou mean!"

3f eetinc of Iron Workers.
Yocxgstows, January 30. At a meeting
of the Iron Manufacturers of the Mahoning
Valley and Cleveland last night it was re
solved that in view of the high wages in the
west and the low prices east it
would be advisable to close down all
our mills in the valley from the middle of
February till June first. One manufacturer
stated his mill would certainly suspend oper
ation if prices did not improve, and asserted
that the amalgamated men in one mill
in Pittsburg were jrorking at twenty-five
cents beluw scale hadn't any doubt that
others were doing the same.
Secretary Martin, of Pittsburg, charactered
the statement a3 false.

A Reading Train Smashed Up.
Twenty-Five Persons Wounded,
But None Fatally.
Fatal Railway Accident.
Jersev Citv, Pa., January 30. Philadel
phia express on the Reading nilroad was
wrecked at Greenville this mornine. A few
lues are reported lost and many injured. The
train consisted of four coaches, well filled
with paseogers. The acci lent occurred be
tween Danforth avenue station and the Cem
etery Bridge. The train was running rapidly,
when a wheel on the forward coach broke
and the car was derailed. It ran into a coal
train and was upset and the other three cars
.were wrecked. The accident wa witnessed
by a mounted policeman, who telegraphed
the fact to the police at headquarters for a
surgeon and ambulance. Up to the present
time twenyr-five wounded persons have been
lemoved from the wreck and many more are
yet to be extricated.
Thoe from Philadelphia are all more or
less the worse for the shaking ud. Torn
clothing dirty, begrimed, with blood
stains betokened the ordeal through which
they had passed. Several gentl-men, who
were cut and bruised severely, re
fused to give their names for
publication, for fear of alarming
their friends. The track was torn up for a
considerable distance. The tender and cars
were piled up in a confuted mass.
The cue of the accident can not be ascer
tained, but it is certain that the cars were
off the track some distance beyond the switch
and thus proving that the Utter was not the
cause of the disaster.
Washington, January 29. Senate. Mr.
Harrison, from the Committee on Military
Affairs, reported adversely the bill introduced
by Mr. Cullom to facilitate promotions
throughout the army by retiring from active
service, on their own application, officers who
had served in the war of the rebellion.
Placed on the calendar. In submittinc the
report Mr. Harrison said the committee did
not favor the bill because it would resul in
giving a very large proportion of the officers
of the army the privilege of retiring.
Mr. Cockrell (sotto voce) With increased
rank and pay.
Mr. Sherman, from the Committee on Li
brary, reported the resolution approving the
order of exercises prepared by the Washing
ton monument cemmission and charging the
officers of the Senate with the duty of carry
ine such exercises into effect. Agreed to.
House. Resolution agreed to: Relative to
the counting of the electoral vote. Bills re
ported and placed oh the calendar: Concern
ing frauJul-nt claims aainst foreign govern
ments; to establish a branch soldiers' home in
California; admitting free of duty goods in
tended for exhibition at the World's Exposi
tion of Arts of the colored race to be held in
Mr. Tucker, from the Committee on Judi
ciary, reported a resolution instructing the
Committee on Appropriations to include in
the sundry civil bill items appropriating $20,
000 to pay the Hallett Kilbourne account on
a judgment recovered by him against J. U.
Thompson, paying Thompson $2,050 and
Sbellabaiger and Wilson $200 for professional
services. Printed and recommitted.
The House then went into Committee of
the Whole on the river and harbor bilk
Washingtos, January 30. Uocse The
House was called to order by the clerk, who
read a communication from Speaker Carlisle,
designating Blackburn as speaker pro tern
for to-day. The chair laid before the House
a communication from the secretary of ihe
navy in response to House resolution
calling for information concerning the recent
colh-ion of the Tallapoosa. Referred.
The Secretary of State's steamer was on
her regular freighting cruise.
Townshend reported the Postoffice Appro
priation bilk Referred to Committee of the
Senate Beck presented a memorial from
a nnmbei of naval officers protesting against
the passage of the resolution giving the
thanks of Congress to Commander Schley
and Lieutenant Emory. The memorial says
that the resolution would advance
these gentlemen in grade and this ad
vancement would affect all officers now
standing above them in the list of their re
spective ranks. They say that "while not
wishing to detract from the merits of these
most excellent and worthy officers, we would
respectfully represent that their services in the
Greely expedition were not of a character
which entitles them to such marked d.stinct
ion and advancement over their comrades."
Hoar, from the Committee on Judiciary,
reported favorably resolution providinc that
the two Houses of Congress assemble in the
Hall of the House February I lth, to count
the electoral vo'e.
Hoar called up House resolution of similar
import and after amending it to correspond
with the Senate resolution it was acieed to.
The amendment increases the number of tel
lers. Mr. Hoar asked unanimous consent to take
up the Pacific Baiiroad bill. He said it was
an extremely important bill. It undertook
to deal with a vast government property.
There was a large indebtedness to
the government, and he undertook to
remove from it further discussion
of a great many complicated questions. The
bill was one that excited a good deal of inter
est in the country. Hoar supposed he was
not saying anything that would be disputed,
when he said it bad created a large interest
among the stock brokers. The newspapers
were full of charges and counter-charges
regarding it and while he would make no
charge against the press of the country as a
body some of the statements were of course
inspired by the interests of speculative deal
ers in stocks. The oill, Mr. Hoar added, had
not been stimulated or instigated by
any railroad company, but was the result of
original investigation by the Senate Judiciary
Committee, which had looked very carefully
into the whole subject. He did not wish to
push the bill to a vote to-day, but would like
the bill and the accompanying report read,
when he would make a short statement on
the subject and then propose to let the bill
stand over until to-morrow. The bill and
report were then read.
The Misting Editor of Harper's Weekly.
Niw York, January 30. Nothing has yet
been learned of the whereabouts of S. S.
Conant, managing editor of Harper's Weekly.
The assistant editor of that periodical this
morning received a letter from a prominent
physician from the Pennsylvania State Asy
lum for the Insme, stating that late Tuesday
night a man applied lor admission to the
asylum. He said that two Russians were
pursuing him and that he was a newspaper
man. In height he was five feet, eight
inches, but in mo other respect did he resem
ble Conant. Pinkerton's detectives are no
longer working on the case.
Rochester, N. Y, January 30. Captain
John McAfTerty, charged with causing the
London explosions, is well known here. The
Union newspaper to-day publishes an article,
in which Major Joseph P. Cleary, Major
Dan el A. Sharpe, and Captain D. C. Felly,

at less expense, to purchase copyrights. The
books are then to be published by the state,
in English and German, and furnished at cost
priee.to the pupils of schcols in the state,
whether public or private, and the governor
is authorized to sell copyrights to other states.
Allen O. Myers spoke on the bill and said
that this Legislature must take some action
on the school-book question and in his opin
ion the most advisable course is for the
House to go into committee of the whole,
consider all the bills introduced and perfect a
good measure. He made the statement that
he had drank whisky with Mr. Weldy at the
Neil house bar during the nooa recess and
that an employe of a school-book firm paid
for Mr. Weldy's whisky.
Mr. Weldy thought such matters should
not be mentioned in the House, and said that
every one knew neither he nor Hjea ever
Mr. Littler also repelled some charges or
insinuations which had proceeded from Mr.
Myers. The motion to reconsider then car

San Francisco Calk
When James G. Fair becomes bored with
Deing a United States senator, mining mag
nate, banker, capitalist, twenty-millionaire,
or any other trifling vocation which now
fritters away his valuable time, he can find
profitable employment in hiring out to a na
tional association of newspapers as a profes
sional mterviewor for the practice of the
first clas in interviewing. When a young
interviewer takes his first lesson on Mr.
Fair, lus mental associations are much Ilka
thoe which must agitata a fetter pup who
finds the quail his master practices with
filled w ith needle points or hot with cayenne
pepper. It looks very much like other quail,
but, then, appearances ore deceptive.
Even an old interviewer, one who has
tackled office-holders from pound-keeper to
president; criminals, from a sneak-thief to a
murderer; commercial men, from a comer
grocer to a cattle km(r; speculators, from a
collar-button vender to a railroad manipu
lator; loldiers, from a private to a lieuten
ant general, and got any with every one of
them, even such an inter lewer feols, after
a professional assault upon Mr. Fair, that
he has been toyed with by a runaway cy
clone. The Call interviewer who entered
Mr. Fair's rooms one evening had previ
ously tried his skill on the gentleman at short
Interval-, for the past eight years, but be left
hope liehind hen the senator invited him,
with unusual suavity, to "take a seat, me
son, take a seat."
"When are you going east, senator?" the
scribe began, in a light and airy manner,
calculated to disarm a less seasoned veteran.
"I was just thinking," Mr. Fair said, in his
cheeriest tone, "I was just thinking how a
man's business does accumulate when he is
away from his office. Here I am, working
like a slave, with two clerks to help
me, and do you know, my son, I have
scarcely time to eat my lunches."
"Do j ou expect to get your work cleared
up in time to be m Washington during the
first weeks of the seasonF
"Well, it's hard to say when a man whose
business is behind will ever get an hour he
can call his own. I was just saying to a
friend to-day that if I didn't leave the bank
at 4 SO I would scarcely leave it before dark,
almost, do you seeP
The interviewer braced up, switched off,
and tnod a bold bluff. Do you think, sena
tor, that congress will touch the tariff ques
tion this coming session P
"Dear me, dear me! What a great ques
tion that is, too, to be sure. Why, when you
start on it you think you will get it in shape
to report a bill in a week or so, when along
comes somo witness before your committee
with a new phase of the subject; and, why,
every one is at ea again."
"But the vast amount of evidence taken
last session on the question will be such a
help that congress can pitch right in and act
at once, now."
"Just as I was saj ing to a friend the other
day. E er thing appears nil set, the cal
endar is in excellent shape, we have vol
umes of valuable evidence, and no one can
deny that the tariff needs reviewing. Yes,
reviewing is tho word, I should certainly say
The'senator smiled blandly, the reporter
mopped his streaming fowbead, and led again
as follows: t
"Everything beins aKe, do you tfcuik
the cago will be rung up so to say f
"Well, of course, my son, one would think
congress might begm fifteen minutes after it
is called to order, don't you seet Now, the
tariff needs . reviewing all admit' that re
i lewing, but perhaps a matter which is ap
parently easy might be said to sometimes
disappoint us in effect That's a great ques
tion, thai tariff it certainly needs review
ing." The Call man grasped the arms of his
chair, recovered his breath, and tried the
virtue of a cross-counter.
"Do you think, senator, that this con
gress will pass any of those bills for the re
covery by the government of any of those
lapsed railroad grants P
"I am very glad that none of that railroad
litigation that anti-railroad litigation was
put through by the last congress. Congress
always goes wrong when it does anything in
a passion. Now a man who owns a railroad,
my son, thinks as highly of his interests as
the man who owns sheep on the hills," con
cluded the senator, his voice dying softly
away, and his eyes being apparently fixed on
the hills of the base range of his own silver
"Then you think none of these bills will be
passed P the reporter asked, as soon as he
had sufficiently suppressed his emotions to
"Well, say two of them; two of them
might pass, 1 might say."
"Would you say which two!" the Inter
viewer asked, briskly, seeing a gleam of
The millionaire i jaton thought awhile,
stroked his iron-gray beard, looked at the
blue smoke he blew toward the ceiling, and
answered slowly: "No, I would not; I b
lieve I may say I would not."
"They are.grans to western roods, I sup
pose." "Yes, western; or you might say westerly,
"There is a report that you have disposed
of your interest in the Nevada bank. Do
you care to say whether it is correctP said
The Call man, banishing politics as a
knocked -out subject.
"Well, I saw a report like that In a little
evening paper. It said a meeting was called
on the 26th of the directors of the bank to
ratify the transfer. Now, all that was dene
at that meeting was to ratify the sale c
some land tho bank owned in the western ad
dition." "Then you have not sold out your interest
in the Nevaaa bankP
"Why, I do thousands of dollars of busi
iness in which tho balk has no interest. I
suppose the people will be asking for the par
ticulars of that next. Eh, my sonP
"Ah, then, you h e sold your interest in
the NevaJa bankP
"There is so much the public wants to know
that it don't find out sometimes. Curious,
isn't it, my son!"
The interviewer slowly and painfully arose
to depart. The senator kindly assisted the
interviewer's feeble stops toward tho door,
remarking: "I always like to see the gentle
men of the press. Call again when there is
anything else I can inform you about Good
night, my son."

A negro came before a justice of the peace
and signed a pledge, promising to give up
the use of all intoxicating liquors. Ten days
afterward the judge met him, and muchly
to his astonishment, found him greatly under
the influence of liquor. "Why, Erasmus,"
cried tho judge, "God bless you, how is this
and after your solemn affidavit, too? You
have broken your oath, Erasmus."
"Not at all, judge not at all, sir!" cried
Erasmus, with great alacrity. "De affidavy

COOKING THE TURKEY.
Mow the lilrd Is Best Prepared A
Choice of the lteclpes.
Authorities differ ill their opinions regard
ing the best method of preparing the noble
bird for roasting, aime contending that it
should not be stuffed, but simply trussed and
thus roosted. There is not any doubt that
In this way the pure fiwor of the bird being
unmixed with any ta.e which does not be
long to it, is better preserved; but then it
must be remembered that tastes differ and
that-v-iiich ssould be grateful UJ Olle jttlate
another would pronounce insipid. AH, how
ever, agree on one point that the bird should
be hung at least a week before dressing, if the
weather be at all suitable, and they also con
cede that the ben turkey is to be preferred
for tho flavor of its flesh. One authority
recommends that in its previous manage
ment the bird should be emptied and picKed
a few hours after it is killed and some
parings of fresh truffles (or dried ones if the
fresh are not procurable), placed in the belly,
which is then stuffed with clean, sweet hay.
The bird is then to be hung by the legs for a
week before it is dressed, when tho hay is to
be withdrawn, the truffle parings washed in
warm water and a portion of them stewed in
the gravy that is served with the turkey.
For the stuffing, sausage meat beat together
with an egg is supposed to be the proper
Another way is to take a young hen turkey
that is perfectly sweet; pluck, draw and
singe it carefully, wiping the outside with a
damp cloth, and after washing it inside, dry
ing thoroughly. Then make a forcemeat as
follows: Soak a quarter of a pound of day
old Vienna bread in milk; squeeze till dry
and add a quarter of a pound of finely
chopped sausage meot, two eggs, a table
spoonful each of minced parsley and onion
and two ounces of good butter, seasoning
with salt, pepper and grated nutmeg. Mix
these ingredients thoroughly together; then
stuff the bird with the forcemeat, truss it se
curely for roosting and put it before a clear
Are. It should not be forgotten that basting is
all important When the bird is done enough
dish it up, pour over it some truffle sauce and
Deliee, who holds that the meat of a fowl
plainly roasted is more juicy and tastes bet
ter than when filled with bread dressing,
thus gives directions for preparing the bird:
Singe, draw and truss a large, tender, dry
picked turkey; salt the inside and roast
about an hour and a quarter; untniss, placa
on a dish, surround with water-cress; add a
little broth to the drippings, strain this over
the turkey and serv e with cranberry jelly.
None ot these methods, however, find full
favor in the eyes of the epicure. To him
the "Truffled Turkey," has unrivaled charms
and if he can't have it in this way h would
rather forego it altogether. The manner of
preparing a truffled turkey is as
follows: Take a plump and young
hen turkey, weighing about ten pounds,
and let it also be fresh killed.
Then select a pound and half of sound truf
fles, washing and cleaning thoroughly to rid
of all earthy or gritty substances. Cut a
pound of the truffles into bolls from on inch
to an inch and a half m diameter. Weigh
the trimmings or parings and pound into a
smooth paste. Then take an equal weight of
fat bacon; cut it and pound it until smooth;
mix it with the truffle paste and season the
whole with salt and pepper. Now blend the
mass together and when perfectly smooth
mix the truffle balls with it and stuff the
turkey with this forcemeat The turkey
should hang for at least a week after it Is
thus stuffed or even longer would bo better
if the weather is cold enough. To roast the
turkey cut a thin slioo of fat bacon and lay it
upon the breast and over the bacon lay a
piece of buttered paper. Then place the bird
before a clear fire, remembering that a roost
turkey is not apt to be injured by too much
basting. When done serve hot, with or
without truffle sauce. If the Utter is pre
ferred make it os follows: Put a half a
dozen finely-minced truffles into a sauce-pan
with some good butter, set the pan over the
fire, shaking it frequently for ten minutes,
then have dissolved in a half a pint of boiling
water two teaspoonfuls of Johnston's fluid
beef. Four this into the pan with the minced
truffle", seasoning with pepper and salt to
taste, and then odd a glass of native sherry.
Now set the pan where the contents may
simmer gently for fifteen minutes, when,
after skimming the fat from the surface, the
sauce is ready to serve.
Sassafras trees and bushes have almost
disappeared from New England. About
twenty years ago the demand for sassafras
tea anung the lower classes in England
caused a lively exportation of sassafras
roots from James river, but the jealousy of

is a pleasant and wholesome beverage, and

New York Sua.
I came down in o car the other evening
with a lady and her h'isband who were go
lug to the theatre. Another wife and bus
band sat just opposite us. How did I know
It was another husband and wife? Easily
enough. We all knew they were husband
and wife. She was young and pretty, wall
dressed and lonesome. Why lonesome?
Lonesome because her husband read the
paper and said never a word to her. My
friend's wife grew almost frantic at the
sight of it "For heaven's sake, George,"
said sh, "never treat me that away "
"How? Why, what do you mean?" said he.
"Oh, don't you seel" she exclaimed, as she
hid her face In her hands and leaned up
against tUs big sleeve of his overcoat "don't
you see he don't say a word to her. I shouli
feel miserable if you were to treat me that
way. I should actually die of humiliation.
What a brute of a man it is that can ride all
the way down town with his wife and never
betray the slightest evidence that he knows
she is in existence. Talk to mo, George: do
say something. I will jump out of the cor if
you don't talk to me. I would not look like
that poor woman for anything in the world."
And thus and thus, George got up a
smile a sort of forced hot-house smile, but a
smile and said something about the
weather. That was better than nothing. It
quieted my lady somewhat ond enabled her
to look upon her lonesome neighbor with a
sort of commiserating condescension. It
was not clear that the married woman on
the opposite side would have appreciated the
sympathy of her fair sister even if she had
been aware of it Perhaps she did not want
to be talked to. Perhaps she and her hus
band bod had a heated argument before they
left home as to the lost pair of shoes she hod
got or as to the merits of the 'Watts collec
tion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Perhaps they were both cooling off. He
read the paper and she looked out of th'
window. When they got to the street wher
they wanted to go, he rose, and, without
looking to one side or the other, said, "Come
on," and they walked out I
No people on earth could be so matter of
fact except married people. Perhaps he was
one of that class of men who believe that
marriage is the end of all gallantry whether
to one woman or another. There are men of
that kind. In fact, the world is full of them.
My friend's wife took the silent benedict on
the other side to be one of th t bind. If there
is one thing in the world that angers a
woman It is neglect ond indifference. "Hell
hath no fury like a woman erorned." A
woman neglected is next to a woman scorned.
There is no period in a woman's life whan th
is so happy as when she is being courted.
That accounts for the fact that a great many
of thsm permit themselves to be courted by
men who have no right to do such a thing.
They like the gall antries of courtship, tha
playful words, of a suitor, his constant ani
mation, his hundreds of small compliments,
his readiness and agility in extending nil
hand whether it is needed or not his inspira
tional conversation, his self-sacrifice and un
varying de votion.

grew nervous and apprehensive and excited.

Gathering Grand Jury Secrets.
An old reporter was talking to me recently
"I remember," he said, "whan we had
the board of police commissioners in this
city a long time ago. They used to bold star
chamber sessions, and every day their pro
ceedings appeared in the newspapers with
great accuracy. There was Tom Thompson,
now the mayor's private secretary; Johnny
Adams, now of The New York Sun; Tom
Macmillan, now ot The Inter Ocean; and
Charley Northrup, afterword city editor of

Thompson put up a scheme to get at the

He refused to get out and the other boys
did not dare to raise a row. He got all the
