FOUND THEIR BABY DEAD
Shirking IHcovory of .vtr. and Sirs.
Thtmi Irvin When They Arose
This Muiniug The t'orsier's In
qarac. When Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Irvin. of
837 First avenue, arose at 7 o'clock this
morning they found their infant daugh
ter, Louisa, iced 5 months, dead in! bed,
where il had slept between them.
The infant had occupied the same bed
with its parents, and its mothsr states that
it was alive st 3 o'clock this morning, but
when they arose at 7 o'clock it was dis
covered to be dead. Coroner Hawea was
notified shortly after and. Deputy Coro
ner Eckhart impanneled a jury consisting
of Sherman V. Searle, foreman, T. H,
Ellis, Robert Bennett, Henry Powars,
John H. Lloy 1 and D. B. Solacder, who,
aster viewing the dead infant, began the
taking of evidence.
The first witness called was Mrs.
Thomas Irvia, the mother of the child,
who testified to the child having be n
born last September, and thttt it had al
ways been sic'ily. It had been worse "the
past three weeks, but duringjthe last day
or two had apparently gotten oyer a cc!d
and was some better. She also tes'.i5td
to having bee: awakened by the child
about 3 o'clock a. m , and that she took
it in her arms and stopped it from crying
ami laid it down again, and that when
her husband and herself awoke in the
morningjthe y discovered that the baby
wi dead, and then further testified to
having notified the neighbors of tbe oc
currence. Mrs. Thomas Lemon, who lives down
stairs in the sane house, was next exam
ined. She testified to having known of
the baby about three weeks, and cor
roborated the mother's testimony in re
gard to the child not being well- and
added that it had apparently failed in
stead of growing larger. She last saw
tbe child alive yesterday afternoon about
5 o'clock. Mm. Irvin had (called her
about 7.30 o'clock and she cams upstairs
and saw the baty dead.
Mrs. Thomas Irwin, a grandmother of
the dead baby, was next examined and
her evidence showed that the infant bad
been very weak ever since its birth, and
that tbe attending physician had given
as hig opinion tl.at tbe baby had never
had sufficient vi ality since birth.
The jury aftei hearing the evidence re
turned a verdict that the child had ' com-'
to its death front tbe lack of vitality since
birth, on the morning of Feb. 12, I8U2,
between tbe hours of 3 and 7 a. m."

40 Years tin; Standard
Nnmoron specimens of ancient butter
re to be seen in tbe Irish museums, which
were tliseovi-rvd durintr the past century by
peasants vnpiged in difjinp peat. Some
of them were dug from depth of ten, fif
teen Hnd even eighteen feet befcw the sur
face of the ground, mid considerable an
tiquity niiirt be allotted to the finds,
although no absolute data exists by which
the average increase of bog soil rnny be
calculated. Examples tf this butter weigh
as much hm thirty and forty pounds and up
ward, and m-e identified by the numerous
hairs of reddish color as beiu the product
of the cow.
The butter is found packed in hollowed
vessels of wood and in masses of irregular
form. Ti:e latter are usually surrounded
with a layer of moss and at times have an
additional covering of linen cloth. The
object of thus burying butter in peat or
immersing it in bog water would appear
to be its preservation under circumstances
and in districts where S;.lt could not !e pro
cured. Chemical examination still demonstrates
the presence ef those oily acids obtainable
from ordinary bntter anil the absence of
common salt. This is characteristic, for in
the County Cork butter is still made, with
out the subsequent addition of wit. The
practice has long passed into oblivion and
even the tradition is forgotten by the de
scendants of the race who must in former
times have employed it as an ordinary and
familiar proceeding. Philadelphia Ixdger.
Itustia'tt Home for Foundling.
The czar and general government of
Russia shelters and provides well for at
least one portion of its subjects, and the
Russian army w ill never lack recruits so
long as the present sytem of foundling
homes is kept up. as each day many bring
additions to this great Rrmy, who pass
muster in (fcese institutions, where they
are temh-d with the most perfect tare, not
infrequently by the very mothers of the
waifs themselves. These mothers, having
no way of providing for their unfortunate
children, bring them to the home, secure
the number placed around the neck of the
child and then apply for the nurse's posi
tion, thus securing the care of their own
babies, while many bring them hens and
never see or hear of thern again.
The goveniUK nt of Russia greatly en
courages these institutions by providing
for them in a most substantial and com
fortable manner. We visited the home in
Moscow, where we saw 1,000 of these little
soldiers, none of them ten days old, two in
each crib or in the nurse's arms all out in
the sunshine, and struggling for a life that
had been so ruthlessly lhrust upon them.
They nre brought into the institnl ion at the
rate of sixty per day. That number was in
waiting in the anteroom to have their
names and numbers entered in the book of
fate for a home within its walls. Denver
The Two Blurney Stones.
Five mill's wK of the city of Cork,
where two streams meet, is the little vnl
h y of HIaniey. wiih its castle, whose fame
is world wide, for lii;h on the nort heaste'rn
side is set the famous "Blarney stone." It
is said that he who is adventurous enough
to reach it and' has faith enough in it to
kiss it wiil henceforth have a gift of mar
velous efficacy. Honeyed words will flow
from his lips and persuasive powers hang
on his utterances. He will win his way
everywhere and with everybody, and when
mankind, and much more, womankind, are
taken captive by the witchery of his tongue
people will say. ''He has kissed the Blar
There are two stones, however, each of
which arc claimed to be the real talisman,
the other being on thesnmmitof the castle.
The stone last named is aixmt two feet
square and lears date of 1703. The one
mentioned in the opening as being set
in the wall on the northeastern side of
the castle bears date of the building of the
Mrncture, which is 1446. To kiss this the
votary must be let down from the top of
the building some twenty feet by means of
ropes. This has the effect of making most
every one believe, or pretend to believe,
that the stone on the roof of the castle is

Kvcry incident should be welcomed

One day a distinguished notary, while
breakfasting with a friend at a cafe in
Paris, indulged in some stinging comments
on the public acts of Marshal. Marmont.
Suddenly another gentleman, dining at a
neighboring table, arose and approached
them, his munlachc bristling with anger.
"Sir," cried he, tragically, "you shall
give me satisfaction!"
"Are you Marshal Marmont" quietly
asked the notary.
"I have not that honor," was the reply,
"but I am his chief aid-de-camp."
""Give me your card, then, sir," said the
notary. "I will send you my head clerk."
