A TRAIN ROBBER KILLED.
One or a Gang Who Held I'p a West-Bound

San Pernardino, Cal., Nov. 20. The
west-bound overland passenger train
was held np by four robbers between
Jtaggett and Parstow. Express Mes
senger Hutchinson drove them olt
with buckshot,and the train pulled out
.for Los Angeles.
At Harstow the trainmen sent a

where the body of one of the robbers
was found perforated with shot. A

the engine. The robbery was at
tempted at about 12:30 a. in.
The special with posse and the body,
which is unidentified, arrived at Par
stow at 3 a. m. There were four rob

in getting on the train. They were
evidently amateurs. The dead robber
is a young man. The train held up

Efforts to Remove Milan.
London, Nov. 20. A special dispatch

The Cuban Ouestlon Again.
The Cuban question may come up
again to-day. The American commis

that point finished, but the Spanish
commissioners are reported to have
declared last week that the mortgages
imposed by Spain on the Cuban, as
well as on the Philippine revenues
must not be impaired or questioned.
This would compel the American com
missioners soon and probably to-day
to ilemind whether Spain means to
repudiate the plain compact of the
protocol to relinquish sovereignty

deaths would have continued to have
the same proportion to the reported
For the First Five Months of the Present
In April, 1S9S, President McKiirfey
called for 12.ooo men and later for
73,000, which, with an increase in the
j regular army, and the immune and
other special regiments, made a total
of over 20,000 men." Beginning with
May, 1S9S ior which month we have
medical reports in the office of the
surgeon general of the army of the
regiments aggregating 151,(,S3 men,
and including Jme, July, August and
September, we find on file a loss by
death of only 1.175 men reported by
medical oflicrrs.in anavcrage strength
of K.7,1tiS, or 10.21 deaths out of every
thousand men during that period of
GiMid Showing for the Present War.
According, then, to the testimony ot
every medical officer who has placed
himself on record then and now, we
lost in the five months of the war
with Spain 10.21 men out of every
thousand reported present by med
ical ollicers serving with them, and in
the first five months of the war of the
rebellion, 17.31 out of every thousand
similarly reported present. This is in
teresting, but it is still more so, if we
look a Iittl more into the details of
these reports. During the mouth of
May last, the death rate was low, .46;
it was somewhat higher in June, .70,
or the equivalent of annual rate of
8.4 per thousand. In July it rose to
2.15 for the month, or the equivalent
of an annual rate of 23.S perthousand.

put forth its energies to rem
condition of affairs and with such
efficacy that the death rate in Sep
tember fell to 2.45. If it be claimed
that this falling off was due to the
fact that the typhoid infection had
done its worst and that, irrespective of
all sanitary measures, the death rate
would hava fallen owing to the ex
haustion of susceptible material, we
have merely to consider what was the
history in our civil war camps subse
quent to November, 1SG1, when, as I
have stated, the number of deaths had
already amounted to 17.31 per thou
sand of the strength present. In that
month of November the rate was 4.27,
or somewhat more than our recent
maximum of August last, but the next
month, December, showed no sign of
decrease, for 1.5S7 men died, or 4.C9
per thousand. During January, 18f2,
the ravages of disease continued, 1.GG4
men having been swept away by
death, or 4.S7 out of every thousand of
those present. In February the rate
was 4.79 and in March 6.08. In April
the culmination was reached when
3,331 deaths were reported.
A Starrllng Record with a Reassuring
This is a startling record. Mortal
itj' from disease reached its maximum
in the camps of our civil war only at
the end of ten months, if we count
from July, 1S61, or at the end of 12
months if we count from May, 18G1,
when 47.56 men had been buried out
of every thousand of strength present,
or it. put it otherwise, the maximum
monthly mortality was reached only
after 10 or 11 months of suffering,
during six of which the mortality was
greater than that of the disease which
did so much harm in August last. In
that month the country became ex
cited over the hysteric utterances of
yellow journalism, with 4.08 deaths
per thousand and the morale of the
army became broken by making the
volunteer believe that never in the
history of armies has men suffered
from disease as he and hiseompanionf

. LEGEND OF THE LACEMAKE3.
The Miracle Performed by a Draft
Mold To Revive the In
dustry. Her jewels of greai price were no-,
the only things bequeathed to her
daughters by the empress of Austria.
She left a fortune in a collection of
laces to the eldest that has already
proved a bone of contention between
the two ladies. These laces, it is
claimed by connoisseurs, are priceless,
and should never be trusted beyond the
walls of a museum. Should they be
6een. however, a frcsb impetus might
be given to the industry of lace mak
ing, now in a languishing condition.
The queen of the lielgians was the
first to sound, the trumpet of alarm
about this falling off in Flanders, the
cradle of the art of lace making. As
the legend runs, it was Jacqueline,
countess of Flanders, who was deeply
in love with her noble husband, the
handsome Henelick. but who did not
return this tender feeling with the
ardor it deserved He had even made
eves at the countess maid. Serena, who,
' for lhe SO,e Crime f l,ein? 'autiful,
! was sent by her mistress to a dark
and noisome place of concealment in
a corner of the palace The room where
the poor girl was confined opened on
a small, damp garden, and there she
would sadly sit and mourn for her lie
loved, the equerry Luitpold. One day
her e3-es filled with tears; she prayed
to the Virgin to come to her rescue.
by some miracle, and then, raising her
.heavy eyeiuls, sue ocnelil a minion ot
white silky threads, so tenuous and ar
ranged in such wonderful patterns that
she was lost in admiration before them.
By and by she began to wish she
conld imitate the lovely patterns of ,
good Mary's threads, for evidently they j
had been placed there in answer to her j
supplication. At last, after a month of
patient and arduous toil and many
prayers, she achieved a piece of gos- j
snmer cobweo-like work that rivaled j
the miraculous threads arrayed by her !
holy patron. The lace was sent to the I
countess, who shed tears of delight at
the sight of so much beautv. The next :
step was to send for the captive and
marry her to the equerry, bestowing
a sum of money on the happy pair
that would have kept them in comfort
ever after; but. independently of the
countess, they became rich, for the
young woman taught her art to seven j
daughters, from whom descended all
the Bruges lace-makers. This is a '
sweet romance, but from whom did this
pious Serena receive the threads with j
which she imitated the heavenly cob-i
webs? It has been suggested she un-
raveled her stockings, and. inrain. that
she plucked the golden hairs from her j
head, but whv will folks lie so dread-
fully practical? It is sufficient that the
hand-made lace of Flanders is the most ;
exquisite thing wrought by human j
fingers, and the fatal looms have almost j
destroyed its art with their new in-
dustry. It was the elegant Marie An- I

; THE IRISH WAKE.
Kindly and llontan Custom la
Intention .Some Strange
The old Irish custom of "waking" th
dead has given rise to much misrepre
sentation of the Irish character; and
1 ?t " its intention it is a kindly and
human custom. To those who do not
understand the Irish nature, or the im
pulses which move it, rhe drinking,
smoking and conversation which take
place at "wakes" appear incongruous
and repulsive. To the Irish peo pie, on
the other hand, there is something very
cold, unfeeling and repcllant in the
English custom of leaving the corpse
shut up in a room, all alone, deserted,
as it were, by the family. In Ireland, we
keep close company with our dead to
the very last moment.
"Waking" iiie:wi3 "watching." We
watch affectionately by the body of a
dead relative or friend until the time
arrives to depart for the funeral
ground. The body is laid on the bed,
i-ovcred with a white sheet, leaving ex
posed lhe head and the bauds crossed
reverently on the breast. The walls
about the bed are covered with white
sheets, on which are hung bunches of
(lowers and laurel leaves. Seven lighted
candles stand on a table near the bed;
the room is frequently sprinkled with
holy water, to keep off '.he evil spirits
:orpse is a large plat.; of suit, which is
helieveu to Oe uygicnicull.v elticaciowj
for the watchers.
The Irish people are generous in their
instincts. They never like to be alone
nnd this feeling for companionship is
strongest when death has visited them
pathy, in joy or in sorrow, crowd in to
cheer up the spirits of the bereaved, to
distract their thoughts from their sad
loss. First entering the- room whero
the corpse lies, they kneel and say a
prayer. But the manifestation of sor
row is confined to the chamber of
death. Outside, in the wide kitchen,
the neighbors assemble,andsnuff, pipes
and tobacco, whisky and stout are sup
plied tr them.
There are "wakes" at which stories
nre told, forfeits are played, nnd a lit
tle drollery indulged in. but, as a rule,
while every effort is made by the watch
ers to blunt the edge of sorrow, per
fect decorum is preserved, and not an
unseeming word is spoken. I have
been at many "wakes," and certainly I
have never heard a song sung, though
it is often said of course, by those who
do not know that singing is a com
mon practice at these assemblies.
Moreover, there is a motive founded
upon superstition, it is true for check
ing the manifestations of grief in the
presence of the dead. In some parts
of Ireland it is believed that the soul of
a departed person is made restless by
the tears and regrets of surviving
friends and relatives, and that, unable
to flit to Ileaven, it hovers about the
earth until the sorrow for Its departure
is appeased. Mourners may. therefore,
be seen at "wakes" struggling to re
press their sobs and tears. "Don't be
