One of the most significant and cheering events of the last days of the great strike in New York was the blunt refusal of the engi neers and the brewers to obey the order giv en them to strike by the notorious leaders of the notorious District Assembly No. 49. It has beeu a matter for wonder that such a re volt ha3 not come sooner. That it has come indicates that all the organized workingmen are not j et prepared to be unquestioning slaves to such men as Quinn and his fellow conspirators. The brewers of New York aud vicinity who were ordered to strike because the labor leaders thought that more disturbance would help tbein are very thoroughly organized. They have a contract with thair employers. This contract insures them fair wages, with which they are content. It provides for the arbitration of unforeseen differences that may arise. The arbitrators are to be four foremen and four workmen, and if these can not agree a committee of four from the Knights of Labor is to take the place of the workmen, who are to be present to give in formation bnt are not to vote. When they were ordered to strike to help strikers with whose grievances they had no direct concern they kept their agreement with their employ ers. The engineers are not so thoroughly organized as the brewers, but they are, ne cessarily, intelligent men, and they didn't see any leason why they should leave good places to help Quinn and his deluded fol lowers. There are about fifteen thousand of these men who refused to obey orders, and their action is important. It is a severe setback for such men as Quinn, and will greatly de crease the power and influence of the Knights. Such examples are sure to be fol lowed. The Knights who do not hold office have had much reason to find fanlt with the performances of many who do, and wonld before now in many cases have refused to subordinate their obvious interests to the will ot those above them had they only pos sessed the courage. It will probably , never be eo easy again to induce large bodies of workmen to leave profitable work in order to coerce the employers of other laborers who are dissatisfied. The American idea of indi. ridual liberty is beginning to show itself in the despotically ruled order of Knights, and it will soon make irreparable trouble for the ignorant aud malicious among the leaders. EDITOHUL nOIES. The Texas legislature has just created ten new counties and named one of them Jeff Davis. The President's action in vetoing the pau per pension bill is generally and heartily commended, as it deserves to be. Few pres idential vetoes have been more coinraendablo and timely. The new Connecticut State register and manaal sent out by Secretary of State Hub bard is a decided improvement upon its pre decessors. It is well arranged and contains much new and valuable matter. Here is a hint to ministers. A Geiman paper says that with a fnnnel of thick ma nilla paper about sixteen inches long and six to eight inches wide at the mouth, the smaller end being put into the opsning of the receiver, one may talk in whispers through the telephone. The Indian reservations of the United States contain 300,000 square miles, and their population is about two hundred and sixty thousand. Twenty six thousand square miles would locate each family upon a half section of land, leaving a surplus ot about 170,000 square miles, which wonld produce annually $1,430,000. This amount exceeds by about $660,000 the entire sum appro priated for the payment of their subsistence and civilization. A St. Louis paper exults in the "free" Snnday enjoyed in that city. The saloons are all open on Sunday, the theaters give performances and even matinees, the beer gardens are thronged and the mails are dis tributed. The paper further boasts that there is "less disturbance of the peace" and that "more workmen are ready for work Monday morning than in cities where their Sunday welfare is taken in charge by the law." Doubted. The good work goes on. The Long Island railroad company is having steam heating arrangements, similar to those in nse on the elevated roads in New 'Sork city, put into a number of cars and will speedily satisfy itself aa to any doubts there may remain as to the practicability of the plan. The Prov idence and Bristol road has ordered a num ber of cars fitted np with steam heaters to be connected .with the engine, and the Staten Island road has successfully used the process for some time. A Dr. Chuduowski recently experimented on twelve Russian soldiers with a view to discovering the effect of cold applications to the epigastrium on the rapidity of digestion. Each soldier was regaled heartily; his epigas trium was properly refrigerated t.nd the ex citing contest began. The competitors were divided into smokers and non-smokers. The rival teams digested their very hardest, bnt the non smokers outdistanced the others by the space of one honr. It is evident that prohibition does not pro hibit in Rhode Island, in spite of Chief Con stable Brayton's cheerfnl report- A petition for the repeal of the law has been sent to the legislature, signed by men representing $3, 000,000 worth of taxable property. The signers say that they voted for the amend ment, but that, in view of its non-enfoi-ce-ment, they favor returning to the license system. -Another similar petition, signed by even larger taxpayers, will be presented to the legislature before long. Boston has had an unsatisfactory experi ence in attempting to float $500,000 of 3 per cQf,. bonds for parlj improvements, and it is rendered still more galling by comparison of the bidding for $3,000,000 of 3 per cent water bonds in New York. Controller Loew opened the bids in the presence of the com missioners of the sinking fund, and found that there were twenty-three bidders, and that the bids aggregated $13,545,000. The lowest bid was 100.06 and the highest 103.87, and the city was enabled to accept an aver age of about 103 for the whole $3,000,000 offered. The pieminm received was conse quently equivalent to more than the first year's interest upon the bonds, which mature October 1, 1903. .For the $500,000 of bonds offered in Boston, bearing 3 - per cent, inter est and maturing in 193?, the bids received aggregated only $200,000 and the prices of fered were 94 to 951.

An old soldier lay dying in a little town in Pennsylvania one day last week. "Is there anything on your mind that troubles you?" asked his pastor as an expression of grave concern passed over the veteran's face. "Yes," said the dying man, "there is. I have not made nse of my opportunities. I was in the war about fonr years, in many battles, aud thonght I tried to do my duty. But I never picked np a lighted shell with its burning fuse sputtering close to the shell and threw it over the parapat of the fort. I have bsen a regular at tendant upon army reunions and I have read the newspspers since the war, and find that I am the uly man in the Uniou army who has not performed that feat, although I bad plenty of opportunities. My life has been wasted." "But why," esked the pastor, kindly, "did you not do it when yon had an opportunity?" "Because," said the gallant old soldier, "I wanted to save the shell. I always knelt down and pulled the fuse out ' with my teeth!" And then the noble life went ont with a snap like a friction primer. Bnrdette in the Brooklyn Eagle.

Newberry Perhaps your expected guest is an old school friend, towards whom yon wish to show all courtesy while impressing her with the fact of your well regulated home. Urged on by these laudable desires, be care ful that you do not rather present her with a false picture of yonr home life, which shall be as uncomfortable as it is unnatural. Be cause 'or instance your friend may live in the city, where by the nature of things she is obliged to have late dinners, it is not ne cessary to npset your husband's business ar rangements, the children's digestions and the cook's temper by delaying your one o'clock dinner till six. The consequence of this domestic upheaval will be apparent eve ry hour of the day; your guest will see them and be made uncomfortable, your cook will make the change of base au excuse for every neglect, while you in trying to remedy these will become tired and irritable, to say noth ing of being obliged to cancel plea-ant en -gagements in order to attend to home mat ters. In a word you will make yourself a world of extra troubie and fail entirely of your purpose to make your guest "feel at home." Tne fact is that ten to one she does not wish to feel at home in just that way. This very trip may have been taken in hopes of entire change not only of air and sceue, but of household ways. There ccmes to everyone at times, especially if she is a very domestic home keeper, snch a weariness of her own ways and distaste for her own food that her sated organism needs complete change. If iu seeking thiB she finds only an imperfect imitation of the methods she has left behind, she fee.s a disappointment that actually clouds her visit. The temporary, change to an early, dinner and a different diet may have been exactly what her sick stomach craved, and your al teration of household arrangements has thus prevented her from experiencing the benefit she desired. Let me in illustration draw upon my own experience. Our breakfast being a iate affair, is rather a formal meal, at which all the family are present, requiring the houseker-per s strict attention, so naturally I have always had a hankering" for an mtormal loitering in an easy chair over my ooffee and the morning paper. Imagine then my feelings when, npon visiting au artist friend, his wife re marked as we were about separating for the night: "Now, John, do get np to-morrow so that we can breakfast together like Christians! Do you know (turning to me) we have a dreadfully loose way of eating that meal here a sort or 'go-as-yon please arrange ment' which permits each one to take it just when, where and how he chooses." "Oh!" cried I, "it's just what I longed for all my life! Don't, please don't, try to change it in theleast!" and really my most delightful remembrances of that visit are of those Bohemian morning meals, eaten some times with a companion or two, oftener with only the daily journal for company, toasting my feet and perhaps too my brown bread be fore the grate, and helping myself foru the freshly rilled tray beside me. Granting then that the family life should go cn in its usual groove, there are still some carefnl arrangements that can uever be amiss in the preparation for visitors, and among the first in importance are those pertaining to the guest chamber. This room is of course as neat and well furnished as your means will allow, but there are special comforts which will occnr enly to loving care and forethought. If there is no bathroom adjoining there should be an abundance of water, towels and sponges provided, also all those little toilet accessories deaf to every feminine heart, lest by some mischance she may have forgotten her own. Bnt in addition to the toilet bot tles we muBt not forget the camphor and oordials which a sudden illness may require and have every bottle plainly labeled. Many a guest has suffered the long night through for the lacK of some simple remedy which she would not disturb her hostess to procure, and one that I know of was nearly mad dened with pain by mistaking au unlabeled bottle of ammonia for cologne. If there is only one bathroom in the house let her room be furnished with a foot bath at least, in case she should not care to run the gauntlet to the family tub. These toilet matters all carefully looked to have if possible one table in the room so id enongh to write upon, and provided with every material for that purpose. A sleep less fit may be often agreeably passed by in diting a long-neglected letter, and the sweet sense of duty performed will often woo back the reluctant god of dreams. A shelf or two of books above it will not come amiss, especially if they contain a half dozen crisp, fresh novels, one or two beoks of travel and adventure, or an essay from some genial pen anything that will fill np that blank half hour before breakfast and perhaps strike a harmonious keynote for the day. Then give her all tho closet and bureau room possible, so that she may lose that dreary and unsettled feeling of living in a trunk, and above all don't put her into a damp, unaired bed! Having thus provided for her comfort, do not try to "entertain" her. Nothing is so annoying as to be constantly made "compa ny" of, and that honr which calls the hostess to some imperative duty often proves the most enjoyable to the wearied visitor. Let the new comer slip quietly into the family mechanism without being conscious of the least jar or strain; let her feel at all times thaf she is a comfort rather than a care, and yon will have secured her a delightful visit and spared yourself much weariness and worry. DAlUH Ilitt OF TEN ItllLLIOHiS. Little mifrnon iu a Jewelry Store Selecting a Watch tor Her Small Belt. Blakely Hall in New York Mail and Express. A little girl came into the leading jewel ry store the other day to select a watch for her small belt. She came with her mamma aud the footman lifted her out of the carriage, while a demure little French maid walked three steps behind the child, ready to do its slightest bidding with alac rity. The little ten year old was clad in sables from her jaunty cap to a pair of tiny fur overeaiters that covered her boots; her cloak was a marvel of beauty and she carried a natty little gold tipped umbrel la iu one of her gloved hands. She walked down the long corridor of the store beside her mamma with her juvenile nose held high in the air and her eyes moving from side to side with tho calmness of an old sightseer. Presently they came to the counter where the little watches were on show, and one of the clerks threw oten the show-case while another hurried down to the shop to get a chair for the little miss to stand npon. She handed her umbrella to the maid, diew off her gloves with great deliberation, mounted the chair aud began looking the watches over carefully one after auother. They cost from one hundred to six hundred dollars apiece. Each one was scintinized with the utmost deliberation, and there was not the slightest expression of childish wonder or delight. tier scrutiny would nave done credit to a Jewish pawn-broker examining articles on which he was asked to advance a pledge. "I wish yon would be quick and select one, Mignon," said the mother, moving wearily from one foot to another and inno cently refusing to notice any suggestions of the salesmen; "yo ucertaiuly have had time enough to make up your mind. Why don't you take that pretty one with the sapphire set in the back of the ease?" "I don't like sapphires," said the child calmly. "They are unlucky." "No, miss," interposed the salesman pleasantly. "It is the opal which is un lucky and not the sapDhire." The chiid raised her gray eyes to the sales man's face for the first time and stared at him calmly. Then she said with a manner that very much resembled her mother's, "I don't think I'll trouble you to tell nie what stone is or is not unlucky. I am quite able to decide myself and I much prefer doing it without having any outside Intel ferecce." It is impossible to describe on paper the cool effrontery of the -hild's lUiinner. The salesman blushed like a school girl aud held his tongue, while the daughter of ten mil lions stood calmly on her chair, flanked on one side by iier languid mothe; and the oth er by her silent maid, criticising the watches slowiy and carefully. She complained of the chasing on one, the shape of another, the beveled edge of a third, the size of a fouith and so on until everybody iu the vicinity was wearied by the spectacle. Finally she deci ded to order one, and was carted off upstairs where she conld givejier opinions in details to an expert in the manufacture of watches. Take her all in all she was about the mosf nnpleasant type of a New York girl that I have ever seen. A DanKerouH Uucertaiuty. Bnrdette in Hro )kly n Eagle. No nAtter how strong may be every link in a chain of circumstantial evidence there is always a doubt, a lack of certainty, that should weaken it and cause us to distrust it. I remember a story my grandfather used to tell of a case iD which an iuno cent life was sacrificed for a guilty person. A boy on a farm for some misdemeanor was sentenced by his father, a stern man, with nn eye to saving a half-price ticket, to be deprived of his annual circus privilege, and in addition he was to hoe so many rows of corn, while the rest of the family took in the lady's pad act, the bareback riding of Jack Robinson, the club that killed Captain Cook and other attractions of the great moral show. The boy watched the wgon drive away, with tears in his eves, and then he went at his corn rows with a determination to make a short crop, if it could be worked without detection. But he grew hungry after awhile and went into the house and investigated the panlry. There were seven pies it was an American household seven blackberry pies, baked for Sunday. The boy, who was not feeling very well himself, soon placed his person anterior to six of the pies, but pansed thoughtfully, and with keen re gret midway on the seventh. One half of that he left. He then caught the family cat. thrust her nose and feet into the remains of the pie, and dropped her on the clean, white sanded floor of the pantry tnat she might track around on it. Theu he went back to his corn rows. Eveniug brought the family home. The boy saw them climb joyously out of the big wagon. He noted how thejover ripe apples fell from the trees when his sister jumped over the side and lighted flat-footed on the gronud. He Baw his father let himself down over the double trees and get himseif kicked twice by the roan colt. He saw his mother waiting pa tiently until somebody nad time and inclina tion to take the bby. He saw his grand mother perch herself on the hub of the hind wheel on one foot, whila she made vague, circumferential, wandering excursions for the wide, wide world with the other. He saw his brothers let themselves down over the tall gate and break away to avoid doing any work. At last the wagon was empty and there were visible signs of excitement about the house. "The raid is discovered," fi'iid the boy, cutting the. roots of a healthy staik of corn aud caiefully hilling up a vig orous lance weed. Presently he saw his father come out of the house with the gun over his shoulder and the cat under his arm. "The culprit is arrested," calmly remarkod the young robber, as he leaned thoughtfully npon his hoe and watched his father disap pear behind the barn. The shatp report of a gun rang out upon the qniet of the sunset hour, "there," said the Dov, witn nie confident expression of one who knows what be is talking about, "there goes an other victim to circumstantial evidence."
