A Fractious: Horse Frightens Mrs.
"Take my baby; take my baby," was
the frantic cry of a woman to a passer
by on Fourth street in front of the
Tribune building about 5 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. The gentleman ad
dressed threw away his umbrella and
caucht the infant as it was handed, or
rather thrown, to him. Ho then assist
ed the two lady occupants ot the buggy
to alight, and by this time the danger
was over. The occasion of ihe outcry
was the peculiar antics ot a horse
driven by Mr. Van Norman, the buggy
containing himself, wife and a Mrs.
At the time of the occurrence the
horse began to rear and jump up and
down in a really desperate and formida
ble manuer, and the situation looked
critical, it appearing upon investigation
that the animal had been electrified by
Btcpping upon an exposed wire in cross
ing the street car tracks. The gentle

Red-Hot Time Experieneed~by
a White Man With "a
Not Satisfied With One Injuri

the Misguided Chump Es

Hans Olson Is Officially Re
ported to Have Died of
It is said that coming events cast
their shadows before them, and this
maxim was fully substantiated last
evening when the thunder clouds
gathered on the 9011 th side of Washing
ton avenue, between Heiinepin and
First avenue north, and worked a storm
as a private syndicate just before the
threatening mutterings of the genuine
article were heard.
A white cloud with a troublesome jag
started the ball by alluding to three
colored clouds standing peaceably by,
that their color was obnoxious to his
presence. One of the colored men, at
the insult, griDped his cigarette tighter
between his teeth and started for the
white man, with vengeance in his man
ner, wipeuing him off the sidewalk in a
careful and precise manner.
The white was up in an instant and
went for his dusky opponent, who there
upon took him by the neck and care
fully held the white head against the
cool sidewalk for a whole minute, all
the while hanging to his cigarette and
occasionally pulling out a beautiful
wreath of smoke. The treatment sup

trouble for the moment, and me black
men drifted rapidly out of sight as a
suit decorated with brass buttons was
seen approaching. The white soon re

however, and walking across to the
south side of the street, encountered
a negress upon whom he vented his
pent-up spite. Galling her vile names
lie jerked her about and slapped her
across the face.
The trouble that he longed for came
here also, and with great rapidity.
Hardly had his hand removed itself
from her dusky countenance than her
hand came from the depths of her dress
pocket holding a beautifully nickeled
revolver, while a mob of very dark
clouds sprung up with great rapidity
and proceeded to go for the man with

The pursued man barred the door and
shot through the building out the back
door into a yard surrounden by a high
board fence. A boy came to his rescue
here with a stepladder, and, usinir this
as a means of escape, he carefully but
earnestly drew his feet over the fence
after him and was tone.
A mutinous mob waited on the out
side or the building for some time, but
without seeing their man, after which a
still hunt was inaugurated. This was
unsuccessful also, but the colored men
say they know their man, and will "do"
him sooner or later.
DIED OP MENINGITIS.
Such Is the Conclusion Reached
as to Murderer Olson.
An autopsy was made on the body of
Hans Olson, the murderer, yesterday,
lie died of meningitis. Nothing peculiar
was found about the vital organs. The
man seems to have been in fair health.
Of the three gun-shot wounds made by
shooting himself iv the eye was the
most serious. The ball liad penetrated
the skull and was lodged in the brain.
The bullet tired into his chest had gone
through the lung, and that shot into his
neck was lodged in the throat.
During his lucid moments Olson told
the story of the tragedy to Deputy
Sheriff Johnson, who was with him
much of the time. He claimed that tha
attempted murder of his wife was en
tirely unpremeditated, and he hail not
the least intention to harm her sister.
He stated that some days previous he
came across an old revolver iv his
his trunk, and taking the weapon
out, he cleaned and loaded
it and put it in his pocket. Op the day
of the murder he had beeu drinking,
but not to excess, and iv the evening,
as he saw his wife apparently happy
with her sisters, chatting and laughing,
a blind rage seized him and the terrible
deed was committed. He told Johnson
that he intended to plead tuilty, and
wondered how long a sentence he would
get. Undertaker Connolly telegraphed
his brothers at Mason City, 10., last
evening to Know whether they intend
to take charge of the body. If not, the
county will bury the remains.
"\OT WORK ENOUGH."
Ham lin Garland Ijeetures Intor-
cstingly on This Topic.
liainlin Garland occupied the plat
form tor Dr. Sample, at the Lyceum,
last evening. "Not Work Enough' 1
was his theme. Mr. Garland gave in
stances coming under his observation.
In Lowell workmen were found cutting
iron girders with a chisel wlien it could
done tuuen cheaper in other ways. In
California it took the form of opposition
to the Chinese, in other quarters there
was prejudice against women entering
the ranks ot wage-earners because there
was not work enough for the men. In
general, it was fear of immigration.
The idea seems to be that work is a
definite quantity, like a piece of pie,
and the more there are to share, the
smaller the pieces will be.
"As long as there is a human wish
unsatif fied there is something to do,"
the speaker asserted. "What we want
is wages, not work. It is a fact that
there is a scarcity of work. Through
out the past century the farming busi
ness nas been the catch-all for
every one who could not find
anything else to do. As a last
resort every person who failed at every
thing else was told he had better go to
farming. But today Dakota farmers are
selling wheat for 50 cents a bushel;
Southern planters are raising cotton at
a loss, and farmers in Kansas are raising
corn for 10 cents a bushel. Conditions
are not the same as they were twenty
five years ago. Things are fenced Fit

PLEA POX PREACHING.
Rev. Mr. Merrill Presents Minis
terial Views to Students.
Key. George R. Merrill yesterday
morning, at the First Congregational
church, presented the claims of the
ministry to students. Instead of ap
pealing so strongly to the higher mo
tives, as is generally done in such ser
mons, Mr. Merrill began by laying
1 emphasis upon the temporal ad
vantages of the calling. It was the
only profession not overcrowded.
A minister was sure of a living
as good as that of the average of the
community in which he lived without
the accompanying anxiety. The cases
of starving ministers with unpaid sala
ries were rare. The young lawyer or
doctor must wait for practice and a
home. The young minister had a field
at once, and could take a bride within a
month after ordination if he desired.
The opportunities for self-development
in the minister were unequaled. His
vyork was done under healthy condi
tions. Ministers were long-lived.
Everything is in readiness for the
opening of the C. B. Jefferson, Klaw &
Erlanger "Country Circus" engagement

is remarkably large, It being almost im
possible to get anything at all for this

and homely life, is full of interest.
WHEN COAL WAS FIRST USED.
Wood and Charcoal Were the
Fuels Which Preceded It.
Though coal has been employed for
centuries in the manufacture of salt on
the shores of the coalfields, wood had
hitherto continued to be the fuel at the
inland salt works. The use of coal at
Nantwich is mentioned as a novelty in
1656; Drowich wood fuel and leaden
pans were in use up till 1691. In this
era the sea salt manufacture was in the
zenith of its prosperity. But the substi
tution of coal for wood in the inland salt
trade, aided by the discovery of rock
salt, which took place accidentally in
boring for coal in Cheshire in 1870, led
to the gradual decline and final extinc
tion of manufacture of salt on the coast.
The only traces now remaining of this
once nourishing industry exist in such
names as llowdon Pans on the Tyne,
Prestonpans on the Forth, Saltcoats in
Arysliire, and Saltpans in Arran and
Kintyre, or in the Scottish proverb,
"Carry salt to Dysart," synonymous
wish the English "Carry coal to New
In no branch of industry was the
scarcity of wood more keenly felt than
in the smelting of metalliferous ores.
Continued efforts to accomplish this
with coal began immediately after the
accession of James 1., and were perse
vered in throughout the seventeenth
century. But for a prolonged period the
new fuel proved highly intractable, and
scheme after scheme ended in failure
After eighty years of oft-repeated
trials the tantalizing problem remained
unsolved. Wood and charcoal still held
the field in tho smelting furnaces, and
all hope of ever seeing coal substituted
for them had well nigh died out. In
16SG Sir John Pettus, in his "Essays on
Words Metallick," concludes his ob
servations regarding .sea coal and pit
coal with the remark: "They are not
useful to metals."
The unpromlsine prospect, however,
soon began to brighten. Immediately
after the revival of lead and copper
mining, which took place about 1692—
havii g probably been more or less in
abeyance since the interruptions egca
bioutd by the civil wars, when
The fisher left his sUiff to rock .-'

From Mendip's stiuless caves
—these ores came to be smelted with
coal. The extraction of silver from lead
with coal was accomplished by a Mr.
Lydal in 1697. and the same individual
appears to have been the first to suc
cessfully employ coal in the smelting of
tin, in 1705.
The ores of iron proved more refrac
tory, no substantial and permanent suc
cess in smelting them with coal being
obtained till near the middle of the
eighteenth century, when the manu
facture of charcoal iron had dwindled
to very small proportions— in fact, was
dying out for want of fuel.
It men at length became an accom
plished fact at Coalbrookdale Iron
works in Shropshire. The success was
at first ascribed to the Shropshire coal,
but probably the employment of a
strong blast had a great deal to do with
it. From this the coal became the life
of the Iron manufacture. The cidevant
drooping trade became rapidly revived,
and the latter part of the eighteenth
century saw coal iron furnaces in suc
cessful operation throughout the king

Thousands Flock to Listen to
Wise Words From a Dis
Swedish Lutheran Bishop yon

Rev. Edward Judson Addresses
Multitudes at the First
Bigotry's Last Possible Tri
umph Discussed by Rev.
All things combined to furnish in
spiration to Bishop yon Scheele as he
arose to preach yesterday morning in
the capacious Coliseum. Before him
were thousands of devout and attentive
listeners, eager to hear the words of
wisdom that fell from his lips. The
hall is famed for its acoustic properties,
and every word of the speaker was
heard by every listener in the immense
building. How many were present
would be hard to estimate— at least
5,000, but more likely 6,000 or 7,000.
The day was Whitsuntide or, more
properly speaking, Pentecost, the re
ligious festival In commemoration of the
descent of the Holy Ghost on the apos
tles. The appearance of a bishop of the
Swedish state church was a novelty to
the thousands of Swedish Lutherans in
this city, and they turned out en masse.
On the rostrum were the choir of the
Augustanß church, a number of clergy
men, drawn here to attend the jubilee
festivities and the Minnesota confer
Precisely at the appointed time the
distinguished divine made his entrance
from the main door and proceeded to
his seat on the rostrum, followed by
Ke'vs. C. J. Petri, A. Carlson ana J. G.
Ilultkrans, all of this city. The liturgy
of the Swedish Lutheran church wa3
closely followed during the whole serv
ices, which were in the main conducted
by Revs. Carlson and Ilultkrans, while
Key. Pelri announced the hymns.
An Impressive Discourse.
The sermon was preached by the
•bishop. It was most impressive and
interesting. Tho speaker's manner was
gentle and kindly. His gestures were
frequent, though not impassioned. His
whole bearing was reverent aud mild,
and his manner tender and appealing,
rather than forcible and stirring. The
voice was low aud sweet, but pene
trating, and was heard without dim
culty by all.
A refined eloquence pervaded the
whole sermon, which breathed forth
love and charity in every sentence. In
beautiful, almost poetical, language
he enlarged ou the text for the day and
moved his hearers to a high degree of
devoutness. His words well choseu
and his thoughts evidently left a deep
impress on the hearts aud minds of the
thousands that had gathered to hear
The services were conducted entirely
in the Swedish language. The bishop
was attired in the full vestments of a
Lutheran clergyman, wearing a suit of
black broadcloth with the small white
collar. Around his neck hung a golden
chain, from which was suspended the
golden cross, the distinguishing badge
of the bishops. From ; hi3 shoulders
hung a flowing robe of black silk that
added dignity to his appearance.
The text was from John xv., 10-17.
With this Bible quotation before him,
the bishop amplified snd expanded the
text into a beautiful sermon on divine
love and the joyous festival thai the
congregation had gathered to celebrate.
Love's deeds, he said, were not the
same as love itself. One might give
away in charity all of one's worldly
possessions, but if there was not love in
the heart it would be as naught to God.
This must be borne in mind. Oh,
that all might come more and
more to the Lord. First and last we
must not foreet that the Lord is ours
and we are His. This is His command
ment, that we love one another. Kaise
your hearts to heaven, from whence
comes all our aid. Lucifer rebelled
against God and was thrown into utter
darkness. There is no salva
tion except through Jesus. His
heart bleeds for all. He takes us
in His arms and bears us— lifts us from
the depths of sin. He is a friend to the
people and they are His friends, not
his servants. There is not one amons;
us who is not welcome to His
kindness. Your hearts cannot be
satisfied without His lovo, which
is the corner stone of the church. He
says come to Me and I will give you
rest, for I am mild. How humble or
lowly you may bo.you have all the same
right to God's love. Your children, who
cannot say yes or no to religious truths,
He takes to His heart, for or such is the
kingdom of heaven. On this holy Pen
tecost we should say, "I long for my
Savior. 1 believe in Him who died on
the cross that we might be saved."

JOHN OOKB NOT VOTE.
Her. G. L. Morrill Says That's
Why He's Not Wanted.
G. L. Morrill spoke on the status of
the Chinaman before the patriotic or
ders of the city yesterday afternoon at
Rawllns Post hall, Masonic Temple.
"The dark side of Chinese life,"
said he, "has been its atheism,
gambling, opium eating and smok
ing, drunkenness. lasciviousness,
obscene art, degradation of wom
en and infanticide. Inordinate
conceit and pride of their ancient
ethics, religion and civilization made
China the most difficult of civilization.
Providence at length opened the door,
aud our missionaries went there and her
merchants came here. vVe hare ful
filled our part by systematic outrage,
which impeaches us for perfidy before
all the world. Our declaration of man's
rights has been denied by demagogues
for whom no defense can be lfiade.
"Retaliation upon American mission
aries and merchants may be looked for,
unless in the future, as in some respects
in the past, the 'Heathen Chinee' is
found to be more Christian than we who
send missionaries to evangelize them
abroad, and then, by ways that are dark
and tricks that are vain," act very pecul
iar at home. The question of immigra
tion must soon be settled In America, or
we shall become a sink hole of refuse
instead of an asylum for refuge. But
so long as the Chinese are not as unde
sirable as many other foreigners whom
we welcome with open arms, we ar«
neither right nor righteous in a class
distinction, after all we have said about
the 'inalienable right to migrate.' If
John Chinaman could vote, and had in
fluence in politics that the alien mob
had demanded, Democrats and Repub
licans, instead of inserting anti-Chinese
planks iv their platforms, would vie
with each other in lauding his
virtues it he were a citizen. The
voice of the people is not always
the voice of God and the voice of the
average politician is farther away still.
If the fateful hour is ever struck when
our American republic loses its hold
and hope it will be when the govern

hands of professional Gearys, Kearneys

Two Interesting Talks by a Noted
Key. Edward,, Judson, pastor of the
Memorial Baptist church, New York
city, and the preacher who left a fash
ionable congregation at Orange, N. V.,
to preach the Gospel in the slums of the
metropolis, addressed two large congre
gations at the First Baptist church yes
terday. Mr. Judsou has been preach
ing in New York for the past
twelve years, and he has asserted
a areat sway over the masses. In per
sonal appearance he is above the me
dium height, with smooth, full face and
a determined, though kindly expression.
His methods are of the persuasive
quality, and simple and direct. At the
forenoon service he preached an inter
esting sermon on the parable of the
vine and the branches, demonstrating
the beauty of placing full confidence in
and abiding in Christ. He also outlined
his work in New York.
At the evening service he took his
les9ou from the ninth chapter of
Matthew, wherein Christ utters the
parable that a man should not put new
cloth into an old garment aor new wine

"It is always Interesting," he said,
"to study the beginnings of tilings.
People never tired of hearing of the
anecdotes of great men; it is interesting
to trace the deeds of our forefathers

vent of John the Baptist from the
wilderness, where he had been living
on honey, and to the establishment of
his church, which represented the
teachings of the old religion and of
Judaism. At this time also there came
another teacher, Jesus Christ, who was
the apostle of the new dispensation, and
there were then two churches started
in the valley of the Jordan.
He then said: "TV hen people are in

that the two churches came into con

So Says Dr. Shutter if the Gates
or the Fair Are Closed.
! At the Church of the .Redeemer yes
terday morning, Rev. Dr. Shutter dis
cussed "The American Sunday." Tak
ing for his text Mark ii, chapter 27,
"The Sou of man is lord even of the
'Sabbath," he considered the question in
a broad and liberal manner. After an
introduction in which the religious
foundation for the observance of the
Sabbath are, he said:
1 believe in the Sabbath. I believe In
some day out of every seven as a day of
rest from ordinary toil. What particu
lar day I do not care. I have no time
to waste on the discussion of so trivial a
question. The day already fixed upon
by the usatce of the majority is Kood
enough. Why not adhere to it. 1 be

lieve in the Sabbath as a day of rest,
not because God ceased from labor
on that day, but because man needs to
cease from labor on that day. The in
stitution i? not based upon the words of
>ioses, but upon the necessities of hu
manity. It is sacred, not because it is
supremely blessed and hallowed, but
because it subserves the welfare of
man. There is but one thing in this
world that possesses inherent sanctity
and that is human nature. There is
but one thing truly devine— the soul,
altar, ritual, ceremony, day— these are
sacred only as the minister to its de
velopment and culture. Man was not
made to keep the Sabbath; the Sabbath
was made to keep the man, to keep him
in physical health and soundness and in
On the subject of Sabbath observance
Dr. Shutter said: In our own age and
nation the observance must be modified
by certain conditions of life and thought.
You cannot take the Sabbath of one
period and make it fit another.
You cannot take the Sabbath
or one nation and project it
bodily into another. You cannott
take the Sabbath of a village and fit it
to the n.ultitudinous complexity of a
city. The Sabbath is not fixed and un
variable, but flexible and capable of
a daptation. It is not a rock that stands
unmovable through the centuries; but
it is rather a sea whose waves adjust
, themselves to the confirmations of the
shore and offer themselves to the use
of those who dwell thereon.
This leads me to say that I conceive a
great mistake was made when it was
ordained that the world's fair should
close its gates on Sunday— a mistake
that I sincerely hope there may yet be
found some legal means to correct. It
is a mistake for the Christian people of
this country, this land of tolerance and
equality to insist upon anything
that looks like coercion. The object
in closing the fair is to bring
it to pass that more people shall go to
church. But this course will rather em
bitter multitudes ana turn them away
from the churches. They will look
upon this action as an invasion of their
rights, and will justly become indig
nant. The church has lost a magnifi
cent opportunity to show her sympathy
with all classes and conditions of men,
to do good even to their enemies, to
disarm opposition by magnanimity.
1 regret the attitude of the churches
towards the Columbian exposition, be
cause it is not wise for religion to in
voke the interference of the state. The
most unfortunate thins the good people
could have done was to roll up
those petitions that frightened con
gress into attaching a relig
ious order to their appropriation
bill. The petitions were a sign of
weakness, not of strenth; of waning
power, and not of increasing domain.
Wnen religion appeals to the state to
enforce the observance of its sacred
days, to prop and bolster its outward
institutions, the blight of death is upon
its vitality and spirit.
The American Sabbath will be and
must bo the expression of that other
American idea," personal freedom. It
is none of my neighbor's business how
I spenu Sunday, so long as 1 do not in
terfere with him. This is the only lim
itation. On the other hand, he is not
to interfere with me. We may
try to influence ona another
by persuasion, by argument, by
friendly counsel, but neither of us
has any right to lift himself up before
the other and suy: "You must." If a
man who has been shut up amidst
smoke and dust all week thinks it wil
do him and his family more geod to go
into the woods and to the lakes, where
they can get a breath of fresh air
and a bit of sunshine than to go
to church, then I say he has a
right to go, and you and 1 have no right
to tell him his soul is in peril or stig
matize him as a Sabbath-breaker. If
another wttose time for reading has
been scanty wishes to supplement his
fragmentary moments by some hours
in the library, I say go, and Clod bless
you." This is the way 1 feel about the
observance of the Sabbath.
This opening or closing question is
'not to be considered in itself. It is but
oue battle in a conflict that rages along
the entire line— a warfare that between
the spirits of rhe past and the spirit of
the present, between bondage ane free
dom, between superstition and sun
light. Of the ultimate result there can
be no doubt. The sunshine will con
In conclusion Dr. Shutter said: "Of
one thing I am sure, if the doors of the
world's fair remain bolted, it will be
the last triumph of bigotry in an age of
democratic thought— a laud of religious
AHEAD OF COLUMBUS.
Chinese Probably Visited Mexico
R. Seymour Long, in the Leisure
Hour, says: There is abundant evi
dence to suow that the accurate knowl
edge possessed by the Chinese ot the
coasts) of the Northern Pacitic as far as
Kamtchatka, of which country very full
accounts are given by their writers in
the sixth and seventh centuries.
The distanceifrom Kamtchatka from
China is given with great exactness, and
mention fs made ot the Aleutian isles to
the east of it,and the custom of painting
their bodies practiced by tho inhab
itants of these islands. It Is not such a
very long step from the Aleutian isles
to the peninsula of AlasKa, and this,
too, appears to be clearly indicated in
the Chinese records of that early date.
Further, at the end of the fifth cent
ury, the Chinese discovered a country
lying a great distance to the southeast
of Alaska, which there seems to be good
reason for placing In Mexico or Cential
America. The evidence for this discov
ery is based on the report of a Buddhist
priest named Hoei-Shin, which was en
tered on the official annals of the em
pire. Hoei-Shin had returned to China
from a long journey to the East in A. D.
4'J'.», and he states that he had visited a
country which he had named Fusang,
after a Chinese plant which resembled
one that grew in the newly-discovered
land, and which the inhabitants made
use ot for various purposes.
He adds various particulars about the
country, and says he bad been preceded
by live mendicant Buddhist monks from
some Asiatic kingdom who had intro
duced the religion of Buddah into
FusanK i ii 45>S A. 1). An embassy from
this distant land is recorded on one oc
casion, but there is no record of any
subsequent visit of the Chinese to it.
The evidence consequently rests on the
veracity of Hoei-Shin. Attempts have
been made to throw doubt on his state
ments. It remains to be considered,
therefore, whether the particulars men
tioned accord with what we know of
these countries before their occupation
It was certainly not with the Aztec
monarchy that Hoei-Shin came in con
tact: not even with the Toltecs, those
somewhat mysterious and apparently
more highly civilized predecessors of
the Aztec*. Ills journey was made In
the dim pre-Toltec period, of which
only the faintest outlines survive. Yet
this age was in all probability one of a
higher stage of culture than succeeding
periods, if it was then, as appears
likely, that the vast cities whose ruins
still astonish the traveler in Central
America were the abodes of a teeming
population and the seat of a mighty
empire. It is obvious, therefore, that
we have no right to expect any perfect
resemblance of the Mexico in the fifth
century to the Mexico of a thousand
yearn later, while, if any points of coin-
d j nce exist, tne fact must be of great
value as evidence.
Now, it is astonishing *iow many of
the particulars in the Chinese record do
agree very closely with the well known
iacts about the inhabitants of the dis
trict of America in question. Hoei
bhiu tells us that the people of Fusang
had a monarchial government with
different orders of nobility. He speaks
of their reckoning time by cycles of
years. He mentions also the custom
of accompanying royal processions with
the sound of horns and trumpets. He
says that the houses were built of wood,
that iron was unknown, that copper,
gold and silver were known, but not
used In exchange or much valued.
His description ot the Fusang tree
corresponds to the American aloe, which
is unknown in Asia. On the other hand,

he says the natives used beasts of bur
den,which the Mexican? did not; never
theless, their predecessors may have
done so. The only point which appears
to present a real difficulty is Hoel-Shin's
statement that horses were employed in
Fusansr, but it is possible that the Chi
nese character tor horse may have been
used to indicate an animal more or less
The writer here passes to the consid
eration of native evidence in support of
tin- adventof the Baddist priests on this
continent, and suggests the possibility
that Quetzacoatl, the opposer of the
bloody sacrifice of his day, was a Bud
dhist. Tee principal evidence for this
conclusion is a picture somewhat resem
bling the head and trunk of an elephant
found on the walls-of Paler.que. Other
supposed Buddhist simbols have been
observed on monuments, but are of a
more uncertain character. Meantime,
there is still hope that the old inscrip
tions on the walls of Palenque may yet
be deciphered; and the author holds it
not improbable that in the depths of
some yet unexplored ruins may be dis
covered a bilingual inscription with 0110
portion witten in some Asiatic languaga
and the other in the language of the
What Causes Gray Hair.
"Gray hair Is so common now," said a
barber the other day, "that one wonders
what it comes from. Young men have
it In profusion, and young women are
very proud when they have a coiffure
in which gray has a prominent part. 1
attribute the prevalence of gray hair to
frequent cutting and soap. The doctors
speak of inherent tendencies, and old
women gabble of early piety, but soap
and the barber do more toward taking
color and strength out ot hair than any- '
"The singeing of hair la done to pre
vent the oils from exuding from the
ends of clipped hairs, and singeing is in
this regard better. But ammonia-loaded
soaps are the worst factors. Many per
sons use ammonia when washing their
head, and it enters into all shampoo
mixtures. It is also an ingredient of
most soaps. It dries up the scalp and
robs the hair of all its" moisture. That
is where the most of the gray hair of
today comes from."

Bessie had always been a great ex

slave of style, and every new frill and

latest freaks in dress or millinery used
to keep her awake nights. It was in the
halcyon days of jerseys that Bessie
caught sight of one in a store on Wash
ington streets, and of course she wanted
it right away. But papa had had enough
of such extravagance. He had seen
Bessie's wardrobe tilled and emptied,
and tilled again, and he could stand it
no longer. Papa gazed on his daughter
as she made her winsome request for
more, and then ejaculated:
