THE ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1906.
To Admission of Certain Lines of
Testimony in the Mackin
LITTLE PROGRESS IS MADE
Mrs. Sarah Beam, First
the Contestants, Still
in Circuit Court.
Xearly all of the time in the circuit
court yesterday afternoon and today
wa devoted to arguments of points of
law and objections made by the pro
ponents' counsel to the admission of
the testimony of Mrs. Sarah Ueain. a
niece of Father Mackin. Mrs. Beam
on the stand yesterday testified that
she is the only living daughter of the
only surviving sister of Father Mackin.
Sb now resides at Hershey. Neb., but
was born at Coal Valley, and later re
sided at Cable. Orion. Warner Station,
Erie, and Clinton. Site testified that
during all that time she visited Father
Mackin frequently, and ho often visited
at her home. She said the priest had
frequently given her money, and that
he had told her not. to let Mrs. Grace
Mackin or Mrs. Sarah Dolly know of
this, or there would be trouble. There
was an objection as to the admissahil
ity of this statement, and this morning
the court ruled out the statement, but
permitted the witness to relate conver
sations wltn father Mackin. and to
tell of his treatment of herself and her
.tinotber Ohjrelleo Maile.
Almost the first question asked the
witness this morning had to do with
statements of Father Mackin as to
what he intended to do for Mrs. Beam
in the future. This brought an objec
tion, and the rest of th morning was
devcted to argument on the question
as to the admission cf statements of
Father Mackin contrary to the terms
of the will. The court took the matter

The Valparaiso Calamity.
From authentic reports it seems that
in the recent earthquake in Valpar
aiso. Chile, the loss of life and property
damaged was proportionately as great
as in tur San Francisco disaster. These
two cities occupied relatively the same
position in regard to commercial im
portance, both being gateways to and
from the Pacific ocean. From authen

53 years, you are fully justified in be

A controversy over a transfer result
ed in a fistic encounter between Con
ductor Entriken of the Tri-City Rail
way company's Fourth avenue line and
Bert Remley, a passenger, at Seven
teenth street yesterday afternoon about
5:30. It seems that Entriken refused
to issue a transfer, it being contended
that the conductor whom he relieved at
the barn should have been requested
for the transfer. In the fight which fol
lowed Entriken and a bystander were
severely bruised. Both men were taken
In charge by the police, and will be
given a hearing before Magistrate El

Eecentrlc Manner In Which the Poet
Received Some Vtaltors.
It was an eccentric reception that
Sir Henry Roseo was given when he
visited Lord Tennyson. The former
bud been unwilling to intrnde on the
poet, but consented to accompany a
friend, William Summers, who bad a
note of introduction from Sir Lewis
Morris. They found Tennyson at
lunch. Sir Henry writes of it: -Tennyson
at once asked ine to sit by him,
while Mr. Summers was held in con
versation at the other side of the room
by Lady Ten uysou. The old man be
gan with the words, 'Your name Las
been before me at every meal,' at
which I expressed great astonishment,
not thinking that he had ever heard
'And thereupon he produced a small
vial containing saccharin, on the out
side of which was an advertisement
containing a few lines of some appre
ciatory remarks respecting saccharin
which I bad made iu a lecture at the
Royal Institute. This notice I had
never seen, and on my return home I
wrote to the proprietors requesting
them to stop issuing such notices, as I
could not have my name used for ad
vertising purposes, and this they did.
"In a few minutes, without further
conversation, Tennyson rose and said:
Well, I uiut bid you good by, for I
must now lie down. I am going to
smoke a cigar and go to sleep.' Upon
which he Avalked out of the room, giv
ing a distant nod to my disconsolate
friend. Will Summers, who bad come
on purpose to interview the poet, but

MATCHES ON MAIL BOXES.
SeNtchtr May Aftervrard Oet
Liirht on Prtura Bar.
Mr. Smoker, see to It that your Un
cle Samuel doesn't catch you striking
a match on one of bis mail boxes.
He'll sureiv make trouble for you if
he cun prove that a certain scratch on
the metal of one of those gray boxes
on the corners was made by your draw
ing the tip of a lucuer across it.
That's about what the mail carrier
told the fellow who is handing you
this advice. It wan given just after
the adviser had stopped, feeling
"smoky" after coining out of an oEh-e
where they wouldn't let him puff the
stogie ho had in his pocket, to scratch
a match on the mad box. He was
rather surprised when the mail carrier,
coming up to unlock the box, said:
"Don't do that!"
"Why not';" he queried. "I've been
doing it for years. It doesn't hurt the
box. Other fellows and myself have
scratched matches on the top of this
mail box for years, and there is only
a little worn patch on the metal to
show for it."
"Well, go ahead if you want to.
sighed the mail carrier. "But remem
ber that, if the inspector sees you, up
you go on a charge of defacing govern
ment property. And you know that if
the inspector ever gets you it's you for
scratching matches on the "prison bars
for a day or so. By by." Detroit
How the Great 1'enRnln Hatcbea.
It may interest you to know that
the great penguin of the southern cir
cle standing with its head as high as
a man's wawt, hatches Its eggs in a pe
culiar manner. These are not laid
u;m.ui the ground and brooded on after
the manner of most birds' eggs. The
female lays two large eggs. The first
she hands over to the male bird, the
other she keeps. The egg Is held on
the upper surface of the large flat feet,
and is pushed up under the waistcoat
of thick feathers. It is there held close
to the body, whose warmth gradually
vitalizes the young bird. So tenacious
are the parent birds of this grip that if
yoti knock one of them over it will fall
on its back with its feet stuck stiffly
out, still clutching the egg to its body.

ANY citizen who desires to save a part of his earn
ings or income, can draw four percent interest at
any of our local Savings Banks, which are among
the best and safest institutions in the Country, or if he
desires longer time investments, he can get 5 to 5 1-2
percent on absolutely safe security in farm mortgages.
If he is still more ambitious, he can get six percent on
the best Al short time mercantile loans, with notes
endorsed by responsible persons guaranteeing against
possible loss, but the average man and woman is look
ing for a still higher rate, and 4 to 6 percent looks too
small to them. To these, we call attention to the 36th
Anniversary Sale now in progress at this great store.
This entire week is given over to merchandising on
a grander scale than has ever before been known in the
West. A clear saving in prices during this great oc
casion of 10 to 20 percent on the merchandise you buy,
and fully 20 to 25 percent more given to you as souve
nirs absolutely free with all your purchases during this
week. Add these together, and you have a sure saving
of 30 to 45 percent on your investments here.
4 to 6 percent does look small compared to 30 and
45 percent, and yet we do not advise you to spend all
your saving here put aside a certain part in the Sav
ings Bank or in good farm mortgages, but we can not
direct you to any place where your other investments
can be made more safely and more prudently than at
this store. Never before such a large stock of goods,
never more judicious selections, never such an army of
employes, never such a splendid organization, never
such a perfectly equipped delivery system, never such
facilities to handle the multitude of buyers which throng
our store this week.

Unfortunately a good many men have
the conviction that they must keep
exerting themselves all the time. They
call every moment wasted which is
not spent in activity of some kind,
either physical or mental. Such men
are taking the quickest means to burn
themselves out. You cannot live well
and keep happy under a constant and
tyrannical sense of effort. There must
be times of play, times to let up the
tension and to do easy and natural
things which don't require conscience
and exact attention. Horace Bushnell.
the great Connecticut minister, recog
nized this when he said. "Let's go sin
awhile." Sinning has the advantage
of lteing easy, and there are times
when the easy thing is the right thing.

kind of play or another, but who keeps

Wounds, Bruises and Burns.
By applying an antiseptic dressing
to wounds, bruises, burns and like in
juries before inflammation sets in, they
may be healed without maturation and
in about one-third the time required
for the old treatment. This is the
greatest discovery and triumph of
modern surgery. Chamberlain's Pain
Balra acts on this same principle. It
is an antiseptic and when applied to
such injuries, causes them to heal
very quickly. It also allays the pain
and soreness and prevents any danger
of blood poisoning. Keep a bottle of
Pain Balm In your home and it will
save you time and money, not to men

such injuries entail. For sale by all
