of the remaining officials bad resigned.

There are now openly arrayed aualnst
the president the Illinois. Kansas and Pa

be able to bava some lively debates with

and after meetlnar Charley Brown and bis
clever mamrua at tbe seashore, one house
hold at least became convinced tbe trouble
all be in faulty maternal management.
Charley was just turning 6 years old,
with tbe brightest baby fare and manliest
fltrure In white flannels one could And In
riding from the enuthern end of Miaawlppi
all the way up to its fnr northeast corner, lie
bad never brother or sifter to share dominion
in the hearts of a group of adoring relatives,

ought to have been an insufferable nuisance
before cutting his pretty white terth. But

sad moral disadvantage abe made things
tolerably even by giving bhn by all odds tbe
wisest of mothers.
WATcnrNo Tin nor.
Mrs. Brown never posed as the Mtttl
mamma. Indeed, of all the people she would
have been most surprised bad any one told
her of her differences from the ordinary run
of mankind. Rather shy than otherwise,
with no profened mission in life, she was ut
terly unconarlous of illustrating tbe hot art

At first, when strangers met him, tbey
simply believed Charley bad been better
coached than tbe majority in maintaining
his company manners. Never for a moment
did tbey credit his uniform gayety, sweet
ness and good breeding aa every day facta.
Such a thing was too far out of the common
to be true. As a rule, a week's Intimate In
tercourse was necesHai-y to convince doubters
that the child bad, as regards his behavior.

Tbe mystery of this angelic union of phys
ical, mental and moral perfection remained
unsolved, until one of the guests, more enter
prising than tbe rest, determined to watch
tbe handsome little enigma one whole day,
and see where he differed from the balance of
his kind. Her attention was rewarded, for
pretty soon Charley's plump legs were dang
ling over the arm of a chair, while he sucked
peppermint drops and whistled at inbtrvaii
as tbe candy allowed nor did be hold to one
attitude, but wriggled about In orthodox
child fashion, squirming all over tbe seat as
bis active young body prompted, with never
a correction to trouble bis peaceful mind.
Exhausting this amusement, be announced
his desire to flan, and ran off to get tbs short
pole and small book provided for his special
A chorus of voices on the gallery rose in
wonder that Mrs. Brown could permit him
to have a genuine steel hook, and a doxen
prophesied of horrors to follow an accident.
She bad explained all Its dangers, she said,
very quietly, and he must take the risks.
Yes, he could go barefooted ; yes, climb the
gate if he preferred; certainly go In the
shallow water, where It was safe; none of

mothers think tbey are fulfilling a duty, and
in reality rendering tbalr children wretched.
When the pretty baby was fn-tt asleep some
one observed how rarely fortunate Mrs.
Brown was in having so seldom to correct
the young master. "No," the Judicious lit
tle mother replied, "it is not that, but, you
see, I have raised my boy not to need it."
Begged, for the sake of a couple of anxious
hearted young matrons sitting near, to ex
press her views on the perplexing question,
"A long time ago, when a girl growing
up, I noticed how constantly pmvnts fretted
their children by that utterly luttaul or all
nursery words, 'Dont.' You are all kind
enough to call my Charley a paragon of
goodness, and he is a dear little monkey,
but, believe me, tbe principal cause of his
amiability and obedience is that be is never
corrected by word or look save under ex
treme circumstances. For my rt I doubt
babies being born In sin and tbe children of
wrath. We are the ones, then, who make
them so. Look at a baby; its tiny fingers
Just aa naturally reach out for a fluttering
ribbon or convenient lock of hair aa the
dew falls from heaven, and yet right there
tne uttle bund Is slapped and it first bears
that odious 'Dont.' ow a child in proper
environments dues not do three tbiugs a day
for which it should be reprimanded. If you
don't give useless orders, It will never die

suggested by tbe maternal commands, lute
tbe proverbial children who put beans up
their noses simply because their too prudent
mother had Iks tied hitherto undreamed of
orders to the contrary.
"I remember one day when Charley was a
wrap of a child, this truth being borne In
upon my mind by comparing tbe difference
In wlsdocn, human and divine. There were
over lOU.Ouu of the chtawn people in that wil

were charged for all time to live and die.
Only the very gravest crimes were explicitly
forbidden. It appeared divine judgment
recognised the folly or over burdening frad
humanity and curbing uaturaily healthy in
stinct, seeing with tbe powers of omnipotence
that this wbo adhered In letter and spirit
to tbe great laws would come out all right in
lesser matters. It occurred to me then that
with my baby I would strive after the Lord's
brevity rather than the prolix rulings of
Moess, who half tbe time seemed to issue his
orders, simply that the people mlgbt enjoy

Tbe language used by Secretary Rusk lu

ondly to svoid tbe anomaly of leaviug tbe

murder trial Saturday. Tbe first witness
as Charles Carlson, sou of old man Carl
son. He fully corroborated the story of his
father snd h is wife regarding tbe renting of
tbe cottage by tbe man Frank Williams. Be
saw "Williams" when tbe furniture was
moved in. Tbe next time he saw him was
in Canada. Be was asked if be saw him
now, and replied "Tea." Asked "Where is

mood Stains In the Cottage.
Continuing, the witness said tbat some
time after May 4, as tbe tenants ssrmed to
bave disppeared, be got into tlie house
through a window. The carpet was gone,
and a rough attempt to paint the floor bad
been made; they seemed to have simply
poured tbe paint on; there were but few
brush marks. He saw biood -stains on tlie
base boards and in the middle of the floor.
Tne furniture was broken in some cases and
seemed to indicate a struggle having taken
place in tbe room.
Old Mrs. Carlson's Testimony.
Mrs. Catlson, Sr., the next witness, cor
roborated the testimony of the other mem
bers ot bet family. Tbe only time she saw
the man wno rented the cottage and called
himself Frank U'llliams was when bs called
to pay tbe second month' a rent, on April id,
except wueu sbe was taken to tbe county
jail to identify Bourk afupr his return from
Winnipeg. When asked to identify the lesasee
of tlie cottage, tbe old lady, without hesi
tancy, pointed directly at Bourk. This was
tbe third identification of Bourk by the Carl
sn family, but beyond a flush on bis face be
did not seem sff jcted by it
Sbe sai 1 further that the second week af
ter tbe 4th of May a short, fat little man
called at ber bouse and wanted to pay the
rant for the next month, saying Frank Wil
liam sent him. Mrs. Carlson refused, as the
renters did not move in. He wanted to keep
the rooms anyhow, but she refused, as she
wanted to sell tbe bouse and wanted it so it
could bs looked over by possible pur
chasers. Plourk's Fourth Identification.
Hakan Martenaon, the expressman wbo

street to the cottatre, was the next and last
witness of the day. He, too, reoognized
Bourk aa tbe man who hired bim to do the
work, and, with tbe aid of another stranger,
assisted him In loading and unloading tbe
goods Tbe bloody trunk was again brought
luto court, and tne witneas said it was ex
actly like tbe one be banled. Martenson saw
Bourk three or tour times afterward pass
ing bis stand st Chicago avenue and Mar
ket street, nod again at Winni
peg- Bourk seemed more worried
over hie id en ti float km by this witness
than by any of tbe preceding witnesses He
flushed very red and looked troubled, and
ever after kept a steady gate on tbe express
man. Tbe cross-examination developed tbe
fact that Martenson had received pay while

According to an old traveler, one of the
first things one notices in the crowd of pas
sengers recently quitting American shores Is
the sensible and appropriate costumes In
which they array themselves. The reproach
of the American woman that she wears
costly and heavy jewels at all times and sea
sons is taken away from her. Her charm
ing sea costume bears tbe marks of artists'
brains and fingers, but is simplicity itself.
A steel blue serge, perhaps trimmed with
white braid, a little straw bonnet and blue
veil, a tiny scarf pin at the throat, no ear
rings, no brooch, and only keep-eake rings
on her fingers. San Francsoo Ara-aoaut.
