Senator Wilson announces thai
his choice for U. S. senator is the
present incumbent, Addison O. Fos
ter. Foster has made a good sen
ator, and it is to the interest of the
state that he be returned.
It is reported from Seattle that
there's trouble among the 11. of \\\
foot ballists, a rebellion against
Coach Knight having gotten a good
start. A large element of the stu
dent body seems inclined to want to
oust Knight and to engage the ser
vices of Coach Svveeley, of the
W. A. C. They are a little late,
however, for Pullman can use Mr.
Svveeley to most excellent advantage
next year, and Seattle can get onto
his work when they go against the
farmers. This effort of Seattle to
get Sweeley is a great compliment
to that excellent coach, and also to
the great game put up by our boys
this fall, when Seattle won simply
by luck in the last five minutes of

" Pretty Peggy" Coming.
There is promise of excellent en
tertainment in the performance of
"Pretty Peggy," in which Miss
Jane Corcoran, Andrew Rohson and
a large company will be be seen at
the Auditorium, next Wednesday,
Dec. 28th. Miss Corcoran is al
ready known to local theatregoers
as a charming young actress, through
her several previous appearances
here in other plays, though this
will be her first appearance in this
city since she became a star. An
drew Robson, Miss Corcoran's lead-
ing man, is also favorably known,
having played several seasons at the
head of his own company in "The
Royal Box" and "Richard Carvel."
The supporting company includes
a number of actors of almost equal
prominence. "Pretty Peggy," an
original play play by Frances Ay mar
Mathews, has been highly praised
by the dramatic critics of New York
and elsewhere. The plot hinges on
the romantic love affair of Peg Wof
fington and David Garrick and the
story is said to be interestingly told,
furnishing abundant opportunity for
bright, witty dialogue and good
clean comedy as well as intense
dramatic r 1 nations and surprising
climaxes. The production is said
to be one of the largest on tour this

LIGHTNING ROD VINDICATED
Experiment* of Sir Oliver Lodge Prore
That Oopp«r Conductors Attract
the Destructive Bolts.
Unless some inventive genius comes
forward with a method by which a wet
string may be made to do service as a
lightning rod the demonstrations recent
ly given by Sir Oliver Lodge before the
London Institute of Architects may
eventually lead to the restoration of
the highly profitable times of the lightn
ing rod agent. His demonstrations go
to show that this gentleman of smooth
language was far from being mistaken
In his statements that his copper tipped
rods would draw the electric bolts from
their course of destruction. The trou
ble was that they were too good. In his
experiments he used three different sub
stances as conductors—copper, iron and
a wet string. While copper was the most
intense and rapid conductor, it produced
a sharp crack at the flash and showed
by the intensity of its action that it was
likely to set up a side flash, which in
protected buildings has been the origin
of most of the lightning accidents whirh
have resulted in the loss of faith on the
part of the people in the veracity of the
much maliKiifid lightning rod man. Iron
took the bolt with less noise and the wet
string with hardly any, yet the latter was
efficient in protecting the two other con
ductors. Wet string is, of course, impos-
Bible in practice, but Sir Oliver main
tained that iron was quite as efficient
a conductor as copper and far more safe,
in so far as it did away with the side flash.
His conclusion was the trial showed that
copper as a. lightning conductor should
be dismissed with costs. Should it be
possible to convince the American house
holders of the correctness of his views,
the practical outcome of the demonstra
tion may be the revival of the lightning
rod industry, with iron as a substitute
A SINGULAR COINCIDENCE.
Mont Pelee Celebrates Anniversary of
Awful Catastrophe with An
According to a letter written by a
young girl resident in Rosaeau, Island of
Dominica, to a friend at New Haven,
Conn., the volcano Mont Pelee, in Mar
tinique, on May 8 last, by a singular
coincidence, observed the anniversary
of the catastrophe. May 8, 1902, when
30,000 lives were loat and the city of
St. Pierre destroyed, by again bursting
into active eruption. No mention is
made of any loaa of life.
The letter states that "there was a
very active eruption on Sunday, May 8.
There was an immense outburst of
smoko and cinders, and the central
cone within the crater appears to have
been entirely ejected.
"Mont Pelee is visible from Domini
ca. At the same time there was some
slight volcanic disturbances at Ouada
lope island, and the boiling lake in a
crater at Dominica wu unusually agi
It wai recalled here that the disturb
ance of crater lakes and slight erup
tions for several days before the tre
mendous outburst on May 8, 1902, were
premonitory of that disaster and led a
Martinique scientist to Investigate and
by a cipher dispatch warn the govern
or of the island. The warning was
withheld from the public. Both scien
tist and governor were among those
who lost their lives.
HOLDS BANQUET ON BRIDGE
Wabaah Bailroad Celebrates Its En
fennse Into Pittaborg by a
With the shrill screams of all the
whistles on the boats in the harboi
and amid the cheers of thousands oi
people the first passenger train on th«
Wabash left Plttsburg a few minutes
before five o'clock one afternoon re
cently. The train was made up of tec
Pullman cars and ihe private car Wa
bash of President Joseph Ramsey, Jr.
A box car was attached to carry th«
supplies for the banquet, which wai
given at six o'clock that evening on th«
big bridge over the Ohio at Mlngc
Junction, which the citizens of Mingc
arranged for in celebration of tin
opening of the new line.
The party taken by President Ram
sey consisted of 300 men, prominent in
the civic and official life of the citj
and county. Members of both branches
of the councils of Pittsburg and Alle
gheny were in the party. Mayor Wy
man, of Allegheny, went along.
Oowa' milk is said to be abhorred by
the Japanese and rabbits are never
eaten by the Abysslnlans, who explain
that rabbits are too much like big
rats. The natives of the Sandwich is
lands would not take caviar for a gift.
Choese in Mexico is simply curds
desiccated and pressed in pancake
«hape, and even then it is patronized
only by the Caucasion colonists. The
half-breeds accept it with hesitation
and a two-ounce slice of Ldmburger
would stampede a tribe of mountain
Indians. They resent it as a practical
Joke in questionable taste. But why
the Koreans eschew ice cream, as a
traveler reports is the case, Is less
easy to explain. Perhaps they share
the Japanese prejudice against dairy
products or the Chinese predilection
for superheated tidbita. —Chicago Daily
