NAMES FOR RURAL SEATa
a Arc Patterning After Ett
ropean * to a Great Extent.
There ought to be originality enough
'to the American nation to invent appropriate -
propriate names for the estates upon
which rich people pass their summers
but such does not aeem to be case.
"Very often one's curiosity is piqued at
the astounding epithets with which
iome good folk christened their habi
tations. Why , for intsance , has Mrs.
Tom Young of New York called her
, beautiful summer home Donctable ?
'It ' 1 not a family name or ic the word
' tc be found in th dictionary. The
atanfling of tha my Ury r r al that
4 * * name is a Jok of Mr . Young's
cracking. At the time of the
and to her chagrin the staUe
"done" so long In advance of the
that for awhile she lived In It
ate from a manger. It wa *
'these rural days which later Mrs.
Young commemorated in the name.
f Another interesting name of a coun-
'iry place Is Hadderway , on Long is
land , a place that belongs to the at
torney general and Mrs. Gilehrist.
.This name blows verily the blast of tri-
oimph. It Is a slight transposition of
Ibe family contest concerning the
"building of the place in which Mrs.
-Gilchrist "hiul her way. "
Infinitely more interesting we find
such names than those that are hack-
*
neyc < l or smack of .sentimentality.
Hillside , Bellvue , Oakland's , Maple-
grove , rush in our minds in this eon-
-uection. Nor is it well to try too
.liard to emulate the great. For N.
P. Willis to call his drowsy place on
the Hudson Idlewild was a pretty and
appropriate conceit , but the same name
-becomes rather a shock when it is ap-
. plled to a huge , gray 'stone mansion
festooned with electric lights , posed
on a high , barren hill and without a
'tree in sight.
In a country so cold as England and
where the land bears traces of Norse ,
: Saxon and Roman occupation there
'have ' naturally been preserved num-
'bers of monosyllables descriptive of
various divisions of laud. Thus , Toft
means a grove of trees on a hill.
Croft an inclosure. Holin designates
R flat stretch of country near a stream ,
. and "rigs" applies to high ridges of
iland. The meadows were originally
-divided off into "garths , " while for
high , tOAverlike rocks the monosyllable
-"tor" retains its usage.
It can be readily seen how in combi
nations these Syllables became very
valuable. In this country today many
of them are employed.
Maycroft is perhaps as pretty as any
> of the names bestowed on Long island
: homes. "May" is the petit rtom of its
owner , Mrs. Hermann Aldrich , and
"croft" is here well used to express
that the place is inclosedby a bay.
JBirchwood , a house in the woods ;
Beechtoft , a hill crowned with these
-trees , are names readily interpreted.

Balloons Almost Safe from Guns.
The difficulty in damaging a war bal
loon in midair was recently shown by
tests made in Austria. The experl-
ifmenters anchored a balloon at a height
ibf 7,000 feet and had gunners who had
not been given the distance try to
find the range , even approximately and
not until the sixty-fourth round was
the balloon hit It then sustained
but a slight tear , which caused It to
glowly descend.

HOLLAND CHARITABLE WORK.
Cfenrcli and Private laatitntioaut Kx
eel In tbe Aid Granted.
A rec < * it report of tb.e minister of th
Interior of the Netherlands Is of par
tlcular interest , giving complete sta
tistics of the amount expended in char
liable work in Holland , says the Kevu
Sclentlflque. This matter Is regulated
In Holland by the law of June 28 , 1854
which recognizes four sorts of charlt
able Institutions those which are ad
ministered by the state , the provinces
or the communes ; thos which belong
to a church and are for the purpose o
assisting the poor of the pariah ; th
Institutions founded by lay bodita ox
private Individuals , and mixed in titu
tlon which are directed by-the public
authorities , together with the churel
or private Individuals. In all of thest
cases there Is a distinction mada be
tween assistance given to those who
ask it of their own will and those who
are ashamed to ask and are sought out
In an average year the assistance a'
the homes of the indigent amounts tea
a little more than 14,000,000 francs
of which 9,000,000 is in money and the
rest in provisions , the whole being
distributed among about 185,000 poor
In this total of expenditures the parl
played by public funds is 5,000,000
.francs , the rest being almost entirely
furnished by the churches , the private
institutions distributing hardly 500,000
francs. The churches distribute more
money than the public institutions.
The poor who do not apply for as
sistance are almost exclusively cured
for either by the churches or private
institutions , as the public oflicials do
not possess sufficient initiative to seek
out the sufferers. The amount distrib
uted to these "asluimed" poor repre
sents an expenditure of some 1,300,000
francs , which is divided almost equally
between the private and lay institu
tions and the churches.
The distribution of provisions and
fuel reaches the modest total of 270,000
francs distributed among 15,000 poor.
The source of most of this assistance
is the private institutions , the public
granting butT little more than 13.000
francs to 500 poor. The explanation of
the relatively modest part played by
the government lies in the specification
in the law mentioned above that , pub
lic assistance shall bo granted only
when other agencies are inadequate.
The charitable institutions of Holland
are public , 3,400 supported by the
number about 5,000 , of which 1,900
church and 450 are private.

Germany has a pay wedding , at
whicn the bride receives her guests
with a basin before her in which each
person entering deposits a jewel , a sil

some parts of Germany the rule is th it
the expenses of the marriage feast
shall be met by each guest paying ftr
what he cats or drinks. The prices
paid for viands and drinks are high ,
and the young couple often make a
aandsoine profit out of their wetldlng

start them nicely in life.

Steamer Sinks.
Indianapolis , ti d. , Aug. 24. Amid
scenes of panic in which some terror
stricken men lost their heads and
so-ight to throw women and children
over board , the pleasure steamer In
diana went to the bottom of the In
dianapolis water company's canal at

TURKS TURN OH WOMEN
WHOLESALE MASSACRE OF NONCOMBATANTS -
COMBATANTS-
Sofia , Aug. 25. With the rumors of
massacres and the murder of prison
ers in Monastir now authenticated the
general situation is considered here
as fast becoming intolerable. Official
and diplomatic circles alike are con
cerned , having ever/ reason to fear
tbat only a part of the horrors enacted
in the interior ot Macedonia have
come to light.
The revolutionary coaaaiittees are
doing their utmost to force the hands
of the Bulgar.an government and the
immediate outlook is exceedingly
serious.
It appears that tbe Turks have ob
tained tbe upper band in the ulayet
of Monastir ai d the insurgents are
planning to remove the center of
their activity close to the Bulgarian
frontiers. Dispatches arriving tday
from the distuibed area are exceed
ingly gloomy. From Adrianople
comes the news of a Turkish defeat
and the extension of the revolutioi -
ary outbreak ; from Mona-tirthe news
of Turksih victories accompanitd by
barbarous excesses.
According to the Sofia Dnevnik the
Turks committed unspeakable atroci
ties at Krusnevo. The mutilated
corpses of ninety women and children
were found in one building : pieces of
the Dcdics had been thrown into the
street. Fifteen of the principal mer
chants of the town were killed and
t leir heads exhibited on poles at Mon.
astis. The churches \\ore demolished ,
the houses sacked and the town is
now in a heap of ashes. The popu
lace fled to the hills where they are
in a starving condition.
The Dnevnik also a'serts that a
general massacre has trken place in
the whoie vilayet of Monastir. Nearly
all the villages have been destroyed.
The treacherous murder of eighty in
surgent prisoners by their guards neai
Monastis has made an especially bad
impression here.
Many rumors are current of mass
acres in the city of Adrinople , bul
confirmation is lacking. The situ
ation there , however , is undoubtedly
serious.
Many Supposed to be Dead.
Budapest , Hungary , A.ug. 25. Fire
broke out this evening in a four-storj
building , the two lower stories ol
which were occupied by a fancj
goods firm and the upper floors were
residential flats. There were 20U work
ing people in the1 building and the
escape of many of them and of the
residents .on the third a > d fourth
floors was cut off by the flames It if
impossible as yet to ascertain the
number of victims.
The warehouse contained piles ol
flimsy material , and the flames , whicb
were detected at 7 o'clock spread
with frightful rapidity and SOOE
reached the residential floors. Onlj
the work people near the doors below
were able t scapo.

New. York' , Aug. 26. In a glorioui
whole sail breeze , over a triangular
course , ten miles to a leg , the fleet
fuoted cup defender , Reliance , again
today showed her heels to Sir Thorn
as Lipton's challenger , taking the
second race of the cup series of 1903
by the narrow margin of oue minute
and niuereen seconds.
It was as pretty and as hard a
fought contest as has ever been sailed
off Sandy Hook , and had the wind not
fallen during the lasr. ten minutes
the record for the course ,
three hours , twelve minutes
and fifteen seconds , made by the
olumbia two years ago in her mem
orable race against Shamrock : II ,
would have been broken. As it was
Reliance sailed tbe thirty miles within
two minutes and thirty-nine seconds 01
the record , which speaks wonders for [
her speed in the wind that was blow-
inReliance's victory , narrow as it
was , would have been smaller had nol
Captain Wringe , the skipper of the
British ship , bungled the start , send
ing his craft o/erthe line nineteei
seconds after the last gun and band
icapping to that extent. At even
pjint of sailing the Defender's su
periority was demonstrated. S h <
gained one minute and filty-one see
ondsin windward work , forty secondi
on the run to the second mark , anc
fifty-five seconds on the close reach
for home.
When the yachts reached the start
ingliae shortly after 10 a. m. tin
wind was southeast and blowing
about four knots not enough to senc
them over the conree within the timt
limit , but there were indications thai
there would be enough of it later.
The preparatory signal was fired al
10:45 and the starting gun at 11 ,
Navigator signalled that the ract
would be over a triangular course , ter
miles to a leg , the first leg south , thi
second northeast by easb.ln.lf
east , the third northwest by wesi
half-east. The wind at that time
was due south and had begun t <
freshen.
In the preliminary jockeying Cap
tain Borr of Reliance got the w nd-
ward position , blanketing Shamrocl
and clung to it through various ma
neuvers until the warning gun had
been fired , when Captain Wringe had
got clear of the Reliance.
At the sound of the gun Shamrock
bore off to leeward and away from

Boy Found Dead.
Ca'laway ' , Neb. , Aug. 27. ( Special. ,
Ciaus Chrlstaiasen , a lad of twelve
or thirteen years of agej residimj
about ten miles west of this p ace ,
was found dead by hi mother Satur
day afternoon. The lad was herding
cattle on the canons for a neighbor
and as he failed to return home for
dinner as was his cus om , a searcl
was soon instituted by his mother anc
neighbors , which culminated in the
above result.
It appears that the boy had beer
hired by August Jaeger , a well-to-dt
farmer and stockman , to herd his cat )
tie for him , and in so doing he waf
assisted only by his favorite dog
While the cattle would graze the boj
and dog were in the habit of hunting
through the canyons and hills for coy
otes , badgers , rabbits , etc. , and it is
supposed were doing this when he met
his death. When found only his feet
were protruding from a hole in'c
which he had crawled and the eartb
about which had caved in on h m.
It is though that the dog had run
some animal into the hole , when the
boy attempted to crawl in and bring
it out , and in so doing jarred the
earth above which caused it to cave
in upon him , either mashing him. 01
smothering him to death.
