guilty of repeated tautology at every meal,
but we let it go. Her resources seemed lim

but the well-water was good, and the air
was bracing and we stood it in silence,
she used to do all the shopping both of it,
I ma) say, and she had the whole kitchen
under control. She aNo had most of it un

back poich. But she was economjcal, and
that suited us lirst-class. We had

pleased us. Her saving qualities and her

And et she tied We were left without
a hired girl and one or two other little
household articles. We missed tlie odor of

missed the smile. We all tried our hands

the front door where she could lie hand)
All the girls had piteous tales to tell of wh)
they wanted to leave their present places.
It was a clear case of "present help in
trouble." Finally one said she wanted to
leave because she had to get up and split
the kindling for the gasoline stove in the
morning. We hired her. We saw she was
of no ordinary caliber.
She was acolored girl. Verv. Quite the
coloredst girl 1 ever saw. We had to light
the lamps in tlie dining-room every time she
eamo in to wait on tlie table ami pass the
mustard and tillered the ralu-water. She was
so black that when she handled the coal, it
made her hands look as though she had
betii in the tinur barrel. She was
a fast color, and the lady of
the house said she would last
longer without soiling. One da) she came
into tlie sitting room and the canary bird t

There has been but little activity in so

One of the most simple jet lieiutiful and
ipiletl) elegant vv eilding services ever seen
in Springfield occurred last Thtirsila after
noon in the marriage of J. Klden Bowman
and Miss Sue Belle Uurbank. Precise!) at
1 o'clock the bridal party alighted at the
church from two closed carriages As they
i entered the church the organ struck up
the immortal wedding march from Men-
delssohn's "Midsummer Night's Dream."
Messrs. Joe Sharp and Harry Wiseman,
two of tlie ushers, MNs Nellie Johnson and
Miss Lettie Hurbank, the bridesmaids, fol-
lowed bj the radiant and lovely soon-to-be
bride herself, passed slow 1 down th" north
aisle. Down the south aisle marched
Messrs Will S. Habbetts and Will (lodgers,
jr.ti.enther Ushers, Messrs. Ad. Hinlgers and
. .summers, the groomsmen, and the
Kr,M, ,i,i,s.elf. The two parties met and
siin,i. arranged themselves in front of the
altar, where thev were met bv Dr. Geonre
Kiillerton, the officiating minister. The
, , .
'marriage ceremony was ver brief, but
i beautiful, and something entirelj new to
ithiscitj. The ring was used.
The bride was lnvelj in a traveling dress
of blue cloth, with bonnet to match,
hho carritsl a bouquit of Mareehal
N'ed roses in her hand. Both the
bridesmaids wore exquisite corsage boquets
of jacqueminot roses. The entire bndal
part w ore street costumes, there ua an
entire absence of display. Tlie families
and relatives ot the high coutracting parties
occupied the front news. Mr. and Mrs,
Bowman left immediately on the t'. C. C.

WINNING ITS WAY.
KiiIkIiIs of Iibor I-rulirnlt Alorbs tin
Coke. SfoTTDUh. I'.u. Nov 20. -Tills, the
Connellsville coke region, is now the si ene
of a bitter conllict between two rival labor
organizations When the great strike of
listvear closed, the coke-workers av the
need of org nutation, and at once began to
form the Mlmrs' Amalgamated assm iation.
This for a tune flourished, until the Knights
of Labor sent organizers into the district,
when the older association soon found that
their lines were bung invaded. During
the past summer the Knights have
worked sicntl) until the) now have
thlrt)-six Iial assebhes, and ii.ooo nieiii
tiers In tlie toke regions 'I heir strength
has been given heretofore, but the full ex
tent of their organiation and the cI.ish of
men the) have enrolled is a surprise to the
regiou. Mint rs toke workers, storekeep
ers, business men ofall kinds, clerks in the
eniplo) of the lompaii) stors ithat evil
much complained of bv the miners) ami
even mine siiperintemlentsandcompaii) of-
ncials have joined the order. At one of
the works a clerk was discharged from
the store and the Knights at ome set about
Investigating the matter. It is being kept
quiet, as this interference of the Knight
in mercantile matters is a thing here
tofore unheard of in this region. The
Knights, b) quiet operations, have
extended their lines so that the) claim to
have the entire coke region in control
The) have captured nearl) all the blast
furnaces, so that is a firm attempts to use I
"blackleg" coke made b) non-union men
their furnaces will be immediate!) closed i
Tlie) sa) that the) are strengthening their j
forces, as thev exjiect to have a contest
with the coke sjndnate before a great I
while, but the) declare that the order will ,
not nter the strike now being agitated b)
the miners' association 'I he latter organi-,
zation see the progress being made by the
Knights, and have made demands on the
operators, hoping to have the Knights back
them up, although there is a war betivien
John Byrne, a leading Knight, who was
recentl) elected to represent this district in
the legislature, in a talk on the situation,
said "The Knights will not be pulled
into an) contest with tlie coke operators
just now, as we must move according to
tlie rules of the order. We must first send
our grievance to the General Kxecutive
Board at Philadelphia, then theorder every
where must be notihed. If we are told to
go ahead we can then shutdownever)thing
in the coke countr). To get up a strike of
the K. of L. now requires about a month's
time, but we are not on tlie war
path this time" The words of
this man are important, as he
represents tlie organization which can throw
out of eniplo) ment 12.000 men stop the
Diasl furnaces or the countr) and cut off
the production of iron.
This region is the ground upon which is
being fought the battle between trade un
ions and the Knights of Lbor. The latter
organization haswiiied out the Miners'
Amalgamated association in the Mononga
heia Valle) coal region, and it moiii the
feat is to be repeated in the coke district
This town is situated nearly in the center
of tlie region, and organization is rapidl)
spreading Next week six new K. of L.
assemblies are to be instituted and as man)
more are in process or formation.
A BOLD ROBBERY.
Good Moteu From n Mnrket Wngon Lnit
Frank Heaston, living at St Paris, had a
stand in market last evening as usual. Be
fore maket oiiened out he purchased a S14
suit of clothes at Stem's, purchased S4 or
S5 worth of dr) goods and some groceries
and placed them in tlie front or Ins wagon,
from the tail end of which he sold
his market stuff. About half-past
J a couple of colored men were
seen by a bo) to sneak np to the wagon and
grab the goods and make off vv ith them.
The alarm wa at once given, but the men
had alread) disappeared up Walnut alle),
the Five Points of spnngheld, and they
were lost sight of. Mr. Heaton feels ver)
much put out by the loss, w Inch he cannot
help attributing to his on n carelessness.
Similar snatch games have been successfully
perpetrated heretofore, and it behooves the

Coi t miu , Nov. 20. llenrj Dorn, state
insjieetor of shops and factories, sa)s the
Inspector should have authority to approve
or disapprove of fire escapes in both the
construction and tlie manner of attaching
to buildings, and unless this is properly
done they are of no account. Of child labor
he sa)s both jwrents and einpIo)trs en

male eniplo) es and the law requiring seats
for them he sa)s the law is fatall) defective
and should be amended
Tlie effort of the inspector is steadily de
creasing the number of accidents in work
shops and factories. Kiev ators In factories
should be protected b) automatic gates.
Without them accidents cannot be prevent

large factories after work begins is exceed

ed. It is uot difficult to imagine the result
in a large factor) tilled with men, women
