fully remember one of the boldest and !
most unstinted acts of charity on rec- i
ord. This act came from a man who :
las been the subject of much harsh !
criticism, and at a time of sorest trial
and need. The generosity of Miss
Helen Gould, who has made such a
sensiole use of her money, is held by
some in marked contrast with what
they term the "cold, grasping selfish
ness" of her father, Jay Gould, but this
is a mistake. There will always be
enough said of men's faults, but if we
would remember more of the good they
do this would be a better, brighter
The generous act referred to above
was the aid given by Jay Gould to the
yellow fever sufferers of Memphis
when the dread epidemic was so severe
in that city. Part of the record is as
An Associated Press dispatch of
September 4, 1879, said: "The Howard
Association having battled for two
months with the dread destroyer finds
every doxlar in the treasury exhausted,
with several hundred sick and con
valescent to be provided for."
In his luxurious home far from
danger Mr. Gould read the dispatch in
the daily pres3, and this is the re
sult: "New York, September 5, 1879.'
W. J. Smith, acting president How
ard Association, Memphis, Tenn.: I
send you by telegraph $5,000 to aid the
Howard Association. I am certain the
generous people throughout the coun
try will contribute liberally to aid your
stricken city. At any rate, keep on at
your noble work and I will foot the
bill. What are your daily expenses?
Answer. Jay Gould."
"I will foot the bill." These words
of the great financier were, at that
time when so much was needed, as bold
as they were generous, and Jay Gould's
critics should at least place this noble
act to his credit.
The future was so brilliant
That there was naught to match It,
And dazzled me ' until
I had a chance to catch It !
Plenty of Weapons.
This story, which I see "going the
rounds," is too good to be lost:
A man is Arkansas was recently
tried for assult and battery with in
tent to kill. The State brought into
court as the weapons he used a rail,
ax, gun, pair of tongs, saw and file. The
defendant's counsel exhibited as the
other man's weapons a scythe blade,
pitchfork, pistol, dog, razor and hoe.
The jury decided the case as follows:

The man who perpetrated the follow

name to his manuscript, which is now
in the hands of the secret service men,
who will use it as a clew to his

worse than that of the man who wrote
"Last night I sauntered in at one;

that drawn from the vastness of the

into the very depths of my conscience.

Cotton In Mexico.
A report of the British legation in
Mexico regarding the textile trade and
industry of Mexico says:
"The, cultivation of cotton is being
greatly extended, especially in the dis
tricts of Laguna and other portions
of the States of Coahuila and Durango,
but more so on and around the banks
of the Nazas river, whose waters, by
an extensive modern system of irriga
tion, have converted a. large tract, for
merly of no value, into a very fertile
and productive region. Formerly cot
ton was grown in other districts, es
pecially the belt situated between the
shore and the mountain range on the
Pacific slope, and its cultivation could
be renewed in those districts in the
near future. The imported cotton
comes entirely from the neighboring
republic, and is brought down princi
pally over tiie two main lines of rail
way connecting at the northern fron
tier, though a small quantity is also
imported through the ports of Vera

Work Stopped. In Coal Mines.
Reports from Harriman show that
coal mining in that region is prac
tically at a standstill. For weeks not
a wheel has been turned, not a pick
lias been used, not a shovel heard to
ward an output of coal at he principal
mines at .Oliver Springs, Carbon Hill
and Coal Creek, and there is no im
mediate prospect of starting up. There
is a limited amount of coal being
mined. Richards Bros., at Oliver
Springs, have from ten to fifteen min
ers at work and two small mines arc
being operated on Coal Creek.
Both elements seem contentious.
The miners a.ssert that they will not
work without the recognition of tha
union, while the operators as positive
ly declare they will not recognize ths
union. It seems not to be a question
of price, but of principle.

Stat License Lav.
A case involving the State license
law was up for hearing at Lebanon
last weeK, when Bob Eagan and M. M.
Hewgley of Nashville were brought
into court on a charge of taking orders
for whisky and receiving money for
the same for W. B. Hooper & Co. and
Diel & Hewgley of Nasuville. The city
attorney dismissed the cases for the
corporation, but the men were at once
rearrested on State warrants. The de
fense introduced an unreported opin
ion delivered by the Supreme Court in
1900, in which it was held that an
agent could solicit and take orders
for a licensed firm doing business out
side of the county. The court .accord
ingly held that Hewgley, being a part
ner in the firm, the trade was con
summated where the order was given
to him. Eagan, being only an agent
of Hooper & Co., was dismissed.
Stolen Jewels Returned.
When Mrs. Thomas Polk of Jack-
Bon opened her front door one morn
ing last week she was surprised to
find, wrapped in a small package, the
diamonds stolen from the room of her
daughter, Miss Theresa, a few days
previously. When the jewels were
stolen they were in a case, and when
returned they were wrapped in a news
paper and one of the rings was miss

was committed by some one perfectly
familiar with the house, and who may
never be discovered unless the missing

days rest the Schley court of inquiry

as usual, prompt in beginning the
proceedings, and not only the mem
bers of the court, but counsel, were
apparently in brighter and fresher
frame of mind than usual. After the
witnesses of Friday has been recalled
for the purpose of correctinfj; their
testimony, Lieut. B. W. Wells, Jr.,
secretary to Commodore Schley dur
ing the Cuban campaign, resumed the
testimony which he had begun on
Friday. He testified regarding the
battle of July 3. He said he did not
remember the ranges at which the
Brooklyn fired, but , thought 1,100
yards was the shortest. He described
the turn of the Brooklyn, and the
chase after the Spanish ships. When
the Viscaya ran ashore, the Colon was
about 10,000 yards ahead of the
Brooklyn, and for a time firing
ceased. He said that he had received
orders to get a quantity of rapid-
fire ammunition. Owing to the char
acter of the coast it wis expected
that the Brooklyn and Colon would
come to close quarters. He was or
dered to have this ammunition ready
to close with the Colon, and give her
a rapid fire . when they got close to
gether. He then described the rest
of the chase and the final surrender
of the Colon. He said he had not

When Lieut. Wells finished his de

witness, and he was asked as to their
receipt by Commodore Schley. One
from Secretary Long to the Ameri
can consul at Kinkston, dated Wash
ington, May 28, saying thatt must
be delivered to Schley at once, and
informing him (Schley) that, unless
unsafe for the squadron, the depart
ment wished him to remain off San
tiago, and asking if he could not take
possession of Guantanamo as a coal
ing station; also a dispatch from Sec
retary Long to Capt. Cotton of the
Harvard, dated Washington, May 29,
inclosing a dispatch to Commodore
Schley, telling him to hold on at all
hazards;, that the New York, Oregon
end New Orleans were on the way;
also two dispatches from Secretary
Long to the dispatch boat Harvard,
dated Washington, May 30, one in
forming him that the commander-in-chief
had started to join him, and the
other telling him that Sagua, 25
miles east of Santiago, had been re

The cablegram from Secretary
Long, dated Washington, May 27, to
the cable office at Mole St. Nicholas,

to the next American war vessel to

Schley "that the most absolutely ur
gent think now is to irnow positively
whether the Spanish division is in
Santiago, etc.," was shown the "wit
ness. He stated that it had been re
ceived by Commodore Schley on May
SO. The Colon had been discovered in
the harbor of Santiago by Commo-
ore Schley on the morning of the
29th of May.
Mr. Rayner, at this point, exhibited
a chart upon which there were no
tations regarding the soundings tak
en in the vicinity of Santiago harbor,
and the strength of the batteries
there, this information beinsr civen aa
of date April 5, 1898.
"Now, give me the date the navy
department issued the order that has
been referred to in this case about
not crippling ships by the shore bat
teries?" asked Mr. Rayner.
"April 6, 1898," was the response.
Mr. Rayner asked the witness if he
had any ofher information in refer
ence to the batteries at Santiago ex
cept that given on the map referred
to. He said the -commodore had re
ceived a memorandum of information
from the bureau of naval intelligence,
embodying about the same facts - as
contained on the chart.
Mr. Rayner "Am I right in saying
that you, perhaps, saw more or as

him as much as anybody?"

Thousands of visitors on tne

for an understanding of girdles of
black cloth which encircle hundreds
of trees aloner the Wilderness drive.

The blood-red circles are respites.
Thev indicate that the trees so en
circled will be removed by their roots
and replanted along the boulevards
of the exposition. Every tree with a
red band is a maple. The maple is
thus favored above its sisters of the
park forest. Yet there are not
enough maples with red bands to sup
ply the demand for nature's decora
tion, and the country will be scoured
to supply the deficiency.

taries to the marquis. The president

he pressed the marquis to accept an
invitation to dinner on the 26th inst.,

mal dinner would be in order at the
White House. The marquis was
obliged to decline this invitation, as
it would conflict with his engagement
