Harvard Toucher Write Spirited Replies
to Theodore Roosevelt.
Cambridge, Mass., Jan. 9. Harvard's
professors through the Crimson, today
publish two replies to Theodore Roose
velt's recent letter, one by frol. James,
of the Philosophical department, and the
other by J. B. Warner, of the class of
'b9, a prominent Boston lawyer.
Prof. James says: "Mr. Cleveland
suddenly sends a message to congress
asking for a commission upon
whose report he is to say
to England: 'Bick down or fight. Mr.
Olney adds a letter to Lord Salisbury,
saying that England's presence on this
continent is a menace and an offense.
Congress and a large part of our news
papers and people thereupon go fighting
drunk, and Mr. Roosevelt writes you a
letter to call any of us who may have
presumed to beg our congressmen to
slow up if they can, -Betrayers' of our
native land.
"We are evidently guilty of lese ma
jeste la Mr. Roosevelt s eyes, and
though a ma president may auy day
commit the country without warn
ldg to an ntterly new career and
history, no citizen, no matter how he
feels, must then speak not even to the
representative constitutionality appoint
ed to check the president in time of need.
"May 1 express a hope that in this uni
versity we shall be patriotic enough uot
to remain passive whilst the destinies of
our country are being settled by surprise.
Let us be for or against, and if against,
then against by every means in our
power, when a policy is taking shape
that is bound to alter all the national
ideas that we have cultivated hitherto.
"Men at the student-age are easily
swayed by praises. But I trust that no
catch-words or nick-names will deter
Harvard students from beginning the
tight just at this point, and doing what
little they can toward bringing the
threatened increase of armament to
Mr. Warner refers to Mr. Roosevelt's
statement in these words: "The United
States which have been only half
aware th.it there was a Vene
zuela question, have suddenly been
startled by an ultimatum demand
made upon the country with which we
have the closest ties of interest and
sympathy, and this, coupled with an ex
plicit threat of war. For three weeks
thinking men have talked of nothing
else, and there has been no stint of out
spoken criticism. Unless Mr. Roosevelt
has it on hand to go on and shut up the
press, the pulpit, the market place, and
the clubs, it can hardly be worth his
while to begin with muzzling this uni

Kt lis and Claims Pass -tigers.
Cleveiand, O , Jan. 9. A terrible ac
cident occurred on the Akron, Bedford &
Cleveland electric railway near Bedford
shortly after-7 o'clock this morning. A
heavy motor car and a coal car plunged
through the trestle over Tinkers creek,
hurling a large number of passengers a
distance of seventy-five feet into the
chasm beneath.
Two men were instantly killed and a
number seriously injured.
When about half way across the
trestle the passengers felt a swaying mo
tion and the next moment the light steel
structure collapsed.
The dead are Wm. Young of Cuyaho

Oet Committees from Atchison and
licavenvorlh to Do the Complaining;.
Dr. H. D. Fisher, J. B. McAfee, Rev.
S. B. Alderson and Rev. J. C C. Owen,
members of the Ministerial Union com
mittee recently appointed to call on
Governor Morrill visited the executive
office yesterday and also called on
Attorney General Dawes. The commit
tee asked the governor to remove the
police commissioners of Atchison and
Leavenworth and appoint men who will
enforce the law.
r The governor told them he would con
sider the request, but said he had no in
formation from those two cities
that the law was being violated,
and there would be no change
in the police boards unless citizens of the
towns petition for it.
Attorney General Dawes also told the
committee that he (officially) knew of no
violation of the law in Atchison or Leav
enworth. If Revs. IL D. Fisher, J. B. McAfee, S.
B. Alderson and others really expect to
move the governor why don't they go to
Atchison and Leavenworth and arouse
the temperance people of those towns
into sending a committee to the gover
nor, asking for a change in police com
missioners? That is the way Governor
Morrill wants it done. Why not accom
modate him in a mere matter of form; or
is it a fact that neither Leavenworth nor
Atchison, like todom, "have even ten
people" who care to have the saloons
closed? Perhaps the Atchison and Leav
enworth temperance people are cowed
and frightened into silence. .
If this is true it is the business of the
ministers or of the State Temperance
uuion to find it out.
The governor demands that a commit-,
tee from the towns in question make the
complaint to him. The action of a lot
of preachers who don't live in Atchison
or Leavenworth, under the circumstances,
seems stupid.
The Officer Cave it to "Bed" Laird
When He Arrested Him for Assault.
"Red,",Laird was arrested yesterday af
ternoon and taken before Justice Guy
on charge of assaulting Simon Greenspan
last spring. The assault occurred at
the Chesterfield hotel and it was at this
time, Red says Mrs. Greenspan, then
Mrs. Sells, went' to Simon's assistance
with a pair of shears and stabbed Red in
the hand.
The warrant was issued at the time,
but Red had "ducked," to use his own
language. He returned to town the other
day from being out with the Will Sells
show, and later a train boy, aud the ar
rest was made on the old warrant.
Red says he and Simon have "got to
gether" again, that Simon has given him
the "glad hand," and that it will be all
right as soon as Simon gets back from
Kansas City. Red is out on bond.
President Cleveland Wrote His Famous
Message na Board the Violet.
Seattle, Wn., Jan. 9. C. H. Baker.
receiver of the Merchants .National
bank of this city, has returned from
Washington and tells an interesting
story of Presideut Cleveland's last' dues:
hunting trip and the reason he made it.
The story was told to Mr. Walker by one
high in government circles and is as fol
"I called on the president just before
the issue of his Venezuelan message, and
in regard to that there is a little incident
that is not generally known. Mr. Cleve
land's trip was not a duck hunting expe
dition at all. The story is this: Lord
Salisbury's reply to Secretary of State
Olney's note was to be made public, but
Lord Salisbury had agreed not to
make it public until it was received by
the president of this country. Now Mr.
Cleveland absented himself on this duck
hunting trip so that when Lord Salis
bury s reply arrived be would not be in
Washington to officially receive ir. In
the meuu time he did receive it on board
the tender Violet and on board that ves
sel he got up his famous message and it
went before the world, as an answer to
Lord Salisbury s repiv and at the same
time as that reply became a public docu

What the Rebels Think or Kansas John
T. Crisp's Speech.
One of the best speakers that a Tope
ka audience has bad the pleasure of lis
tening to recently was Fish Commission
er John T. Crisp of Missouri, who talked
to the assembled members of the state
board of agriculture for nearly an hour
this forenoon and made them believe
that it was only ten minutes and that
they didn't cars for any dinner.
If a Topeka man should meet Mr.
Crisp in the light of one of the city
street electric lights he would speak to
him and call him Pat Sherman, for two
men seldom look so much alike unless it
is possible that Mr. Crisp would wear a
longer belt.
Said Mr. Crisp: "I would not have ac
cepted an invitation to speak before any
other people in the United States at this
time than Kansans.
"I am acquainted with the Kansas
people. I met many of them during the
war which is now sometimes referred to
by politicians who were never in it.
"1 was present at Fort Scott in your
state at one lime and heard your lament
ed Senator Plumb deliver the liaost
speech I ever heprd delivered anywhere
by any man (Applause.) and I have heard
all of them.
"Of course I am a Democrat. I am a
Missouriau. (Laughter.) I was a
rebel - soldier and yet when I
have to I can conscientiously
make just as good a G. A. R speech as
anybody. I made one once in your Ar
kansas City, but I will admit that I was
scared to death when I started to deliver
it before 25,000 members of the G. A. R.
"I feel acquainted with you though
perhaps you do not know me.
"I was your governor during the war,
though I don't suppose you over heardof
it. Laughter. We had the government on
wheels then, us confederates did.
"When we reorganized the southern
portion of the United States on our own
hook 1 cast about me for something to
satisfy my political ambition with. I
was a good looking young fellow of 21
or 22 years then, and I concluded that I
would like to be governor of Kansas. So
fifteen or sixteen of us got together and I
told them my ambition, and was elected
"During my term I came up to Kan
sas once with a lieutenant to get ac
quainted with my subjects, but the re
ception I got was not exactly what 1 had
hoped for, and I was compelled to go
away without having made the announce
ment that I was governor governor on
wheels, or rather on horseback, for W6
didn't have bicycles then. If we had
had bicycles then we would have moved
taster s jmetimes, perhaps."
Mf. Crisp continued: "The wealth of
the world is growing. And nobody
knows it any better than England does.
Laughter. But there is one thing
England can do and I will forgive her.
If she will just keep the idiots that go
over there from this country to spend
their American made money 1 will be
willing to let her have a slice of Vene
zuela if she wants it. I have small use,
too, for our heiresses who prefer a Brit
ish title that isn't worth a cent to the
sturdy manliness, of the American prod
uct. Applause.
"Any political party that will sell out
to any foreign .combination to get tem
porary possession of the coantry in a
political" way most and will be damned.
(Loud applause. - - - -
"The first thing I heard of the Yankee
in Kansas was that he had a Bible and a
Sharpe's rifle. I thought it was a very
good combination.
"'I have always liked Kansas. When I see
you turn one of your political somer
saults well, we learn largely by illus
tration. You know better now how
brainy were the representatives you had
before. Kansas has been first in every
thing. She needs no eloquence to de
scribe her deeds. ' When you elected
Congressman Harris, an ex-confederate
soldier, I was not surprised. It was just
like Kansas. It was a deed that needed
no oratory or eloquence. It spoke for
itself. It spoke for Kansas. It was a di
rect offering of peace,
"I am not pandering to you. I am
known where I liv as a blunt man. I
am simply telling you what Missouri
thinks of you. I believe if it was left to
a vote of Kansas City the' Kansas line
would be made at the Blue river instead
of at the Missouri river and Kansas City
would be moved over in Kansas us it
ought where it belongs.
"I believe that the Kansas farmer in
congress would make a better legislator
than many who are slipping in now.

Directions From Good Housekeeping; For
Renovating? Them at Home.
Select a mild sunny day, so that the
work may be conducted out of doors and
the hair dried in the sun if possible.
Have ready two or three washtubs filled
with warm (preferably) or cold water.
Carefully remove the hair from the tick
ing so as not to stir up the dust which
it contains. Put it, a small quantity at
a time, in the first tub of water, sousing
it rip and down ; then remove to the oth
er tubs, rinsing it thoroughly. Proceed
in this manner until all the hair has
been washed. Lay it upon a sheet, cover
with another sheet, pin them together
and either spread on the grass or hang
it upon a clothesline to dry.
In the meantime cither wash tho old
ticking or make a new one, using the old
as a pattern. The ticking should be left
open on three sides of the top. When the
hair is thoroughly dry and the tick in
readiness, lay the latter on a bedstead
from which all accessories but the slats
have been removed. Spread the hair
evenly on it, pressing it down firmly all
over. This is not an easy task, as it will
appear next to impossible to get all the
hair in. However, care and patience will
accomplish it. Now lay the top or upper
portion of the tick which is already
sewed on one side to the sides and un
der portion over the hair and haste
Etrongly the edges all around without
removing the mattress from the bed.
The next feature of the operation is
best done by two persons, one, prefera
bly, a small child who will get under
the bed. Take a long mattress needle
and strong twine, tack through the mat
trees between the openings of the slats
and instruct the person under the bed to
push the needle back again, catching at
tho same time small bits of ticking fold
ed up, or wads of raw cotton, securely
on the underside before returning the
needle. Now tie the twine tightly and
fasten with another little wad on the
upper side. Proceed in this manner un
til the whole mattress has been tacked.
When this is done, with a bent mattress
needle tack the sides of the mattress in
two rows by running the needle in and
out along the sides at intervals of four
inches. Now remove it from the bed
and bind all the edges with mattress
binding tape, which comes for the pur
pose. This is a successful and practical j
way of cleansing and making over mat- j
tresses, and in many respects excels the
renovation done in factories. ,

Outdoor Wraps. j
The use of fur as trimming is seen ev
erywhere, on coats, cloaks and capes.
Fur is also used for vests and waists of
cloth gowns. The newest capes are fitted
close to the shoulders, giving a sloping
effect, and hang quite full around the
bottom. The collars, while made high j
and flaring, are shaped so they turn i
down when desired. There are double
capes and single capes and capes lined i
with fur. A useful and comfortable cape
is one of cloth lined throughout with
real squirrel lock and trimmed with i
black tibet. Such a cape is suitable for
almost all occasions.
Fur lined cloaks are shown in greater
variety than ever, and cloth coats and
long ulsters, made double breasted, with
balloon sleeves and strapped seams, are
lined with gray squirrel and faced on
the revers, collar and cuffs with chin
chilla. Fur lined circulars are again in
fashion, but these revivals are made
with more ' fullness than were the old
fashioned ones. They come in brocade
and in plain satin.
Roasting Meats.
In roasting meats put only sufficient
water in the dripping pan to prevent it3
burning and baste with butter or with
butter and hot water until enough liquid
has accumulated in the pan for the pur
pose. Different and delicious flavors
may be imparted to roast beef, lamb or i
mutton by adding half a dozen chopped
oysters, shaved horse radish, chopped
onion in a little muslin bag, two blades
of mace and sticks of cinnamon. Strain
before making the gravy.
Baked Plum Pudding-.
Eight crackers rolled fine, 4 eggs well
beaten, a quart of milk, three-fourth cup

Tho house is old and low, the windows
are broken, tho roof is covered with gray
moss, and it will soon fall to the ground,
for it sits on the brow of a hill overlook
ing the sea in a sheltered little harbor on
the bleak New England coast, and it can
not much longer withstand the fierce win
ter gales. There are no trees on the hill
side and the old house stands out in bold
relief above the thick growth of pines that
are below on the lower land.
Many years have passed since the old
place was inhabited, since the friendly
light from its windows aided the fisher
men to anchor safely within the harbor.
No sounds are heard now save the waves
as they dash upon the sandy beach. But
there are some people who remember when
Aunt Esther lived in the old house, and
many were the incidents of interest in her
quiet life. There she was born and lived
all through her girlhood and married life
and only left it for the little cemetery on
the hillside. She had no children, but was
dearly loved by the young people, some
of whom were nearly always with her.

she wove cloth for homo use and for' sale
also, was silent, there were many things
to be done on the-farm. Auut Esthet
knew just how and -where every rod of
their possessions was situated, and they
covered an area of several miles. She
knew every boundary of their woodland.
I have heard my grandma relate how she
had gone for a little walk with Aunt Es
ther just at sunset,, when she became so
absorbed in tracing some boundary line
as not to 'return to the house till quite
late iu the evening, grandma becoming
meanwhile quite exhausted.
T-tnt. it. is nf thft nrlvnntnnt rt n rl -rlif
J in tho old house, when Aunt Esther was
young, that grandma has often told me.
Aunt Esther's parents were away, and
grandma spent the night with her, the
two girls being tho only occupants of the
house. They retired early, sloeping in the
larp;e spare room up stairs, its windows
looking out over tlio sea. .They must have
felt a little timid,' for they took the pre
caution of drawing a heavy chest in front
of the door. In those days houses were
never locked. . .
Grandma, always a light sleeper, was
aroused about midnight by the sound of
footsteps beneath her window. After a
few minutes the outor door opened, and
the girls, now fully awakened, heard some
one enter and begin to look about the
house, opening doors and finally coming
with heavy tread up the stairs.
I can imagine that to have been a try- j
ujuuiciiii lur bueiu: uut, iaj Liieir re
lief, after coming about half way up, the
steps paused, and finally the person went
down. Soon, by the stillness, grandma
know tho person had left the house. Then
thoir courage returned, and rising they
quickly dressed aud seated themselves by
the window. .... ,
It being a comparatively light night,
although there was not a star to be seen,
they saw a large ship, riding at anchor,
close in to the shore. While they wore
wondoring over this, for none but small
fishing vessols ever anchored there and
not a sail had been in sight when they re
tired, their attention was suddenly drawn
to two men, coming up from tho shore,
where they coulj make out the outlines of
a small boat, with shovels on tboir backs
and bearing between them a large box.
This box was apparently very heavy, as
they stopped twice and set it down for a
moment before reaching the woods, where
they disappeared from sight. It seemed
that they wanted to be sure of the houso
being unoccupied before they ventured to
bring their burden ashore.
After an hour had passed the men re
turned to the boat, having left the box.
With rapid strokes they soon left the shore
and reached the vessel's side. Then the
sails were unfurled, and as silently as she
had come the ship left the little harbor.
Now that all was over the girls lay
. down upon their beds and slept until
When Aunt Esther's parents arrived,
they listened with interest to tho story of
tho night. Grandma's father, then an old
man, said it was without doubt a pirato
ship, and in the strong "box was stored
somo of their ill gotten gains.
Others had seen the ship.'- Some belat
ed fishermen had seen the boat as she was
rowed away from the shore.
Then began an eager quest to find the
box which it was believed ho men had
buried. Somo thought it was a notorious
robber of that time, who was far famed
for his bold and daring deeds, and that
being closely threatened with capture he
had hidden this treasure away until such
time as he should return for it. -Parties
were organized and search made for the
box, but all without avail. Even many
years after men were known to dig in the
vain hope of finding the buried treasure.
Ono man, whoso mind was somewhat
unsettled, dug a cave within the forest
and here lived a hermit lifo searching al
ways for the hidden gold.
With what awe do the children even
now walk through this grove of trees ! As
they listen to tho story the woods look
very dark and gloomy, and they seom to
see the hard faced men digging silently
in the solemn night. They Imagine all
eorts of things the box might have con
tained and talk of tho hermit, pointing
out the place that was his care, and they
draw a breath of relief when once they are
out of the woods into tho sunlight again.
In after years many a night did Aunt
Esther arise from her' bed and. gaze out
over the billows in vain hope of again see
ing tho pirate ship. All her watching
was nover rewarded. Whether the pirates
if pirates they were came and silently
took their treasure away, ujjseen by any,
or whether it moldcred away in tho forest
shades- remains an open 'question. Ex

A Game Dinner.
The rivermen were telling a good joke
at the expense of ono of their number.
One of the boats on her up trip was de
tained somewhat longer than was calcu
lated upon, and an extra ;meal had to be
served aboard before she landed. This
had not been provided for, however, and,
as is the custom, the steward was author
ized to go to one of the many chickon
coops that were being shipped to Cincin
nati and take therefrom four chickens to
fill out tho deficiency that existed. Thia
is often done when the commissary de
partment runs short, a shortage bill being
made out to the consignee and the goods
taken duly paid for. . This was attended
to in the present case, but it was with a
great deal of surprise that tho bill was re
ceived in return showing that, instead of
being common barnyard fowls that had
been taken, the coop in question contained
some of the finest 'game chickens, and the
four that were taken were put in the bill
for just (10 apiece. It was a costly
chicken fry, but the passengers had no
complaint. to make, of the quality. Cin
