Cd warnings published by the
radical press, which favors the organ

appearance of an organized campaign n
to terrorize the Government into ac. s

tuals are being told to arm themselves e
for defense against the "Black liun

tate the bloody tragedy which they
seek to avoid. At the Hay Market 1
1I2,000 excite(i peasants were seized
1with the idea that the intellectuals
were arming against them, and began
wildly talking of means of defense.
The police, under instructions, went
among the crowds, quieting them and
assuring the peasants that the dan

Gen. Dudelin, Prefect of Police, has
issued an order referring to the ru

and the intellectuals, reminding the
police that on them lies the responsi

the safety of every inhabitant of th.

which took place here in the early figs

In a secluded corner of the great cis
basilica is a picture, supposedly an au- mU
thentic portrait of St. Anthony. The it i
style is that of Giotto, and the paint- he
ing has been attributed to him. Two he
figures kneel at the feet of the saint,
who stands erect and extends his
hand in blessing. The grouping is bt
stiff and the coloring crude, but the
expression of Anthony's face is mild on
and beatific, and as we move away,
we feel that his blessing has extended pe
down the centuries, even unto us.
To Preserve Cut Flowers. bt
To keep a spray of flowers, as a
boutonniere, a breast knot or a cor
sage bouquet, fold a towel four double
and wet it through with cold water.
On this place the flowers and cover I
with a washbowl or something sim- m
ilar. Or, put waxed paper under the
towel to save the drip from spoiling a
things with another piece or two over t
the flowers and tucked in under the
bottom piece to make airtight. Over
all place a newspaper.
A japanned tin box, such as botan
t ists use for collecting, is the best sort
a of container for keeping such flowers
a fresh. Lined with waxed paper and
the flowers made moist by water from
r an atomizer, and waxed paper as an k
inside cover, the flowers will come
e out as good as new.
Never put newspaper or other ab- o
d sorbent material next to flowers un- t,
*' less it is first made dripping wet, as. s
e if dry, it will absorb the moisture of 11
r the flowers. b
e The purpose in all this way of keep
d ing flowers is to cause the stems to
g take up food and drink, to remove
whatever may cause spread of decay,
n to give fresh absorbing surface and I
to prevent or, at least, lessen evapo

case which has been pending in the
district courts for the past year Ie
tween the railroad commission of Lou
isiana and the Morgan's Louisiana and
Texas Railroad and Steamship Co. et
als, in regard to the tariff on rice and
rice products to New Orleans. This
case originally came before the com
mission at the D)ecember meeting in
1904. In the following May the com
mission compiled and ordered put into
effect a tariff which was a considerable
reduction on former rates. Before this
tariff became effective, however, the
railroads took the matter to the courts.
where it has since remained.
From the best information obtainable
the compromise which is )roposed will
come within about two cents per 100
pounds of being as low a rate as that
ordered by the commission's tariff. and
will provide for a refund of the differ
ence between the rates charged and the
compromised rate on all shipments of
rice and rice products made since the
tariff ordered was to have become ef
fective. It is said there are a few
minor details to be arranged before
the case will be formally dismissed
from the courts.
