Hudson and Ed O'Brien, of Florence, has been matched for Thanksgiving.

Boole same into the city Saturday af ternoon, and was about to leave this part of the country, but the officers were on his track and he was taken from the Santa Fe train as it was about to leave. Considerable money was found on hi3 person, which is rather uncom mon for inmates of a poor farm. TO PAY INDIANS. Government to Make Settlement With Chippewa Tribe. Ottawa, Kas., Nov. 7.

Continued From First Page. J can landslide in Michigan, and Presi dent McKinley has carried the state by a majority variously estimated from 75, 000 to 100,000. The entire Republican state ticket has also been elected, al though by a smaller majority. Detroit, Mich., Nov. 7 The latest fig ures this morning give President Mc Kinley a plurality in Michigan of 82,017. Col. A. T. Bliss, of Saginaw, the Re publican candidate for governor, ran considerably behind his ticket, receiving 60,430 plurality. The state legislature will be overwhelmingly Republican, the returns showing a soiid Republican sen ate and but 11 Democrats in the house. There was little if any opposition to the constitutional amendment authorizing the taxing of railroad and other corpo rations on the cash value of their prop erty instead of their earnings, as at present, ana it was adopted by probably the largest vote ever cast for such, a measure. CONNECTICUT. New Haven, Conn.. Nov. 7. The clu rality for McKinley, with practically all the returns in, is about 23,000. The sur prise of the day was occasioned by the fact that the Republican state ticket fol lowed closely the figures of the presiden tial contest, and was elected by plu ralities of over 21,000. The Republifcan congressmen were elected by majorities ranging from 10,000 in the First district to a narrow margin in the Second for fcperry. The Connecticut general as sembly will seat nearly all of its sen ators as Republicans, while the lower house will be surprisingly Republican in its complexion. Nearly all of the cities of the state gave safe Republican majorities. The feature of the day was the tremendous vote cast. New Haven, Conn., Nov. 7. The re vised election returns for Connecticut, with every town and district in the state heard from, gives the state to McKinley by a plurality of 2S.415. The Republican state ticket, headed by Geo. P. McLean for governor, is elected by a plurality of 14,340. All four Republican congressmen are re-elected. The state ticket will contain, 22 Re publicans and two Democrats as against 21 Republicans and three Democrats two years ago. The house is Republican by 202, a Republican gain over the last house of 2L VERMONT. White River Junction, Vt., Nov, 7. Returns have been received from all but 63 towns in the state, mostly small agricultural places. Those will prob ably give additions to the Republican majority. From the towns which have made returns Bryan received 13,891 and McKinley 33,795. This will give a Re publican plurality estimated at 30,000. The net gain for the Democrats in this election over that of 1&96 is about 29 per cent., while the Republicans have net loss of about 11 per cent. White River Junction, Vt., Nov. 7. With half a hundred small towns to be heard from out of a total of 26, Mc Kinley's plurality is 30.000 with a prob ability of the missing- towns augmenting this 1,200, in a total ot 45,000. IOWA. Des Moines, la., Nov. 7. Iowa is Re publican by a hundred thousand, and a solid delegation- of eleven Republicans will be sent to Washington. 523 out of 2,137 precincts in the state have been heard from. These give McKinley 299, 07 and Bryan 205,842, a net Republican rain of 20 to a precinct. If this ratio is maintained and there is little doubt it will be, McKinley's plurality will be 104,000, the largest on record in the state. In 1896 McKinley's plurality in Iowa was 65.552. The entire Republican state ticket is elected by the largest plurality ever rolled up m Iowa. Des Moines. Ia., Nov. 7. With lim ited returns from SOO precincts McKin ley's plurality in Iowa will, it is thought be 80,000. The entire congressional del egation in the state is Republican, and Democratic losses are reported in every county. SOUTH DAKOTA. Sioux Falls, S. D., Nov. 7. No doubt remains that the Republicans have won a complete victory in South Dakota. Frank Crane, chairman of the Repub lican state committee, has persistently refused to be quoted during the present campaign on the probable outcome of the election, but at midnight he said: "We have secured sufficient returns from the state to conclusively show that we have carried the state for McKinley by a plurality of from ten to twelve thousand and that we have elected our two nominees for congress and the en tire state ticket. We will have a ma jority of 40 on joint ballot in the legisla ture, insuring the election of a Republi can to succeed Senator Pettigrew. The result has been a surprise to both sides as the fusiomsts expected Bryan to carry the state, while the Republicans did not expect McKinley's plurality to reach more than six or eight thousand. MONTANA. Helena, Mont., Nov. 7. Bryan's ma jority in the state will be not far from 18,000. The fusion state ticket is ap parently elected by several thousand. Governor Toole is running ahead and will have at least 10,000 plurality. The rest of the Democratic state ticket is elected. The legislature is controlled by straight Democrats, known as friends of Senator W. A. Clark. Helena, Mont., Nov. 7. Although the returns are incomplete this morning the Fusion-Democratic-Populists-Unioa La bor ticket has been elected and the friends of W. A. Clark, Democrat and candidate for the United States senate seem to control the legislature. Of the counties heard from decisively be has a clear majority in the house. Caldwell Edwards, Populist, who ran for congressman on the Fusion ticket is undoubtedly elected. Helena, Mont., Nov. 7. Returns are far from complete but Democratic State Chairman Water Coopers claims that Bryan has carried the state by from 10,000 to 15,000, and Toole (Clark Demo crat) for governor, and that the re mainder of that ticket has been elected by from 4,000 to 8,000, seem to be well founded. Republican Chairman Webster concedes that Bryan has car ried the state, but claims the election of Folsom for governor and Murray for congress by small majorities. The latter is running ahead of his ticket and may puli through, but this is regarded as doubtful by conservative politicians. In fact, it looks like a Democratic sweep. W. A. Clark's legislative tickets have won over both Republicans and Daly Democrats in Butte, Helena and Great Falls, which will give him a majority on joint ballot in the legislature, and that he will be returned to the federal sen ate seems beyond all doubt. For the first time in its history Butte has repu diated Daly, every nominee on the Clark ticket having a majority over all. while in Helena the Republicans were only able to elect one district judge. West ern, Montana, or the agricultural section, es usual returned small Republican ma jorities. Caldwell Edwards, Populist, who ran for congressman on the fusion ticket, is undoubtedly elected. NEVAE-JL Reno, Ner., Nov. 7. Late returns throughout the state indicate that Bryan will carry Nevada by from, L200 to 1,500' and that Newlands, Democrat, is re-elected by a safe majority. Washoe county that was supposed to be largely Republican went Democratic and from present indications the Republicans will not elect a man on the ticket. SOUTH CAROLINA. Columbia, S. C, Nov. 7. A very light vote was polled in South Carolina. The full state ticket and full congressional ticket was elected by the Democrats. There was seme opposition to Bryan by prominent cotton mill men, but it failed to develop much strength. MISSOURI. St. Louis, Nov. 7.- While complete re turns have not been received up to 8:30 a. m. it appears probable that Bryan and Dockery, Democratic nominee for governor have carried the state by re duced pluralities. No complete figures can be given for some time. St. Louis gave a handsome majority ! for the World's fair amendments and re ports from all over the state indicate there was no opposition to speak of. This insures the carryingg out of the project to hold a Louisiana Purchase ex position in 1903. St. Louis, Nov. 7. Returns from all but four precincts in the city of St. Louis give Bryan 57,755; McKinley 59. 174; Dockery (Dem.) for governor 56,837; Flory (Rep.) for governor 60,728. The Democrats elected every candi date on their city ticket. St. -Louis, Nov. 7. Twelfth district, James Butler (Dem.), elected. St. Louis, Nov. 7. At Republican state committee headquarters almost com plete returns from more than 30 counties showed an average Republican gain on state and national tickets of 500 com pared with four years ago. This lent the Republicans some encouragement, but Chairman Aikens gave up the state as the falling off in the party vote in St. Louis had marred their hope of success. The Democrats have elected congress men in 12 Missouri districts and the Re publicans in two with still two, 12th and 14th to be heard from. These are claimed by the Democrats with the pro bability of their getting them. In St. Louis the Democrats made great gains, securing one of the three congressmen and all the city offices. The Republican plurality of 15,717 given Mc Kinley four years ago was cut down to less than 3,000 on both national and state tickets. St. Louis, Nov. .7 Returns from all but 67 precincts out of a total of 333 in St. Louis, give McKinley 46.364, and Bry an 47,803. a plurality of 1.499 for Bryan. In 1896 the city give McKinley a plural ity of 15,717. Most of the missing pre cincts are Republican. Flory, Republi can, far governor received 47.991 and Dockery, Democrat, for governor 46,364. Tenth district, Richard Bartholdt, Re publican elected. Eleventh district, Charles F. Joy, Republican, elected. Kansas City, Nov. 7. Kansas City, Mo., complete: McKinley IS, 966; Bryan 17,328. A Republican gain over '96 of 9G votes. For governor: Flory (Rep.) 19,094; Dockery (Dem.) 17,750. GEORGIA. Atlanta, Ga., Nov. 7 Bryan's majority in Georgia will be about 40,000, which is 28.000 less than given Governor Candler one month ago. The majority for Bryan shows an atmarent increase over that of four years ago of about 4,000. But little interest was manifested, and a very light vote was polled. The Georgia del egation to Washington remains solidly Democratic. Coffey county in South Georgia went for McKinley and the town of Fitzgerald registered a heavy Republican majority. Bryan's majority in Atlanta showed a large increase, the Republicans failing to carry the Fourui ward, whieh went for McKinley in 1896. ALABAMA. Montgomery, Ala., Nov. 7. Returns from state are too meagre to give any figures on vote for president. Bryan carried the state by a large majority on a light vote. A full Democratic con gressional delegation was chosen. WASHINGTON. Seattle, Wash., Nov. 7. There is every indication that McKinley has carried the state by 5,000 majority. In this city Frienk, Republican fer governor, is run ning behind McKinley. The election of governor is too close to be determined at this time. Seattle, Wash., Nov. 7. It Eeems im possible to get any definite figures on governor. Returns are coming in slow ly. Indications point to election of Re publican ticket with exception of Frink for governor, who is defeated by Rogers. In King county much scratching was done, resulting in splitting the ticket between Democrats and Republicans. COLORADO. Denver, Nov. 7. The fusion of Dem ocrats, silver Republicans and Popu lists made a clean sweep in Colorado. Bryan's majority, according to the re turns received up to 7:30 a. m., which are far from complete, will be 35,000 or more. The entire fusion state ticket, headed by John B. Orman for gov ernor, ia elected by smaller majorities than for Bryan. The fusionists will probably have a large majority in the legislature, but it is impossible as yet to give any figures cm the result. Denver. Nov. 7. The returns up to 10:30 o'clock indicate that the Fusion state ticket has carried 46 out of the 57 counties in Colorado and Orman's net plurality for governor over Goudy, Re publican, is estimated at 27,000. Denver. Nov. t. xne Republicans concede the legislature to the fusionists, insuring the defeat or United, (states Senator Wolcott. PENNSYLVANIA. Philadelphia, Nov. 7. Later returns indicate that Pennsylvania gave over son nna nluralitv for the Renubliean tick et, exceeding even the record breaking plurality of 295.027 in 1896. Of this plur ality Philadelphia furnished over 125,000 and Allegheny county, including Pitts burg nearly 50,000. Bryan carried Id of the 67 counties in the state. Returns are not yet complete but the indications are that the next Pennsyl vania delegation in congress will stand: Republicans 26; Democrats 4, as against 20 Republicans and 10 Democrats in the present congTess. The result of former Senator Quay's effort to secure control of a sufficient number of members of the incoming legislature to insure his return to the United States senate is yet in doubt. There is no disputing the fact that the attempt ot his opponents to defeat him in certain counties by fusing with the Democrats was practically a failure. Phiiadelphia.Nov.i. In the Thirteenth congressional district George R. Pat terson, Republican, defeated Congress man James W. Ryan, Democrat, by 1.SC0 majority. Ryan two years ago had 2,500 majority. This district comprises Schuylkill county in which there are more mine workers than any other county in the state. The entire Repub lican county ticket was elected and Mc Kinley had 1.500 plurality. Philadelphia, Nov. .v. Pennsylvania's next delegation in the house of represen tatives will stand: Republicans 26; Democrats 4: a repub lican gain of 6. The four Democrats elected are: Eighth district Howard Mutchler. Ninth district Henry D. Green. Seventeenth district Rufus K. Polk. Twenty-eighth district J. K. H. Hall. The last three were re-elected. Amang the Democrats to go down to defeat is Congressman Wm. McAleer in the Third district of Philadelphia. Henry Burke (Rep.) who defeated him had 1,260 majority. McAleer claims that the elec tion was a farce and that the mayor of Philadelphia sent 1,500 police into the district to intimidate voters. Philadelphia, Nov.7 Republican State Chairman Reeder claims that Mr. Quay will have 151 votes on joint ballot in the next legislature for re-election to the United States senate. There are 254 votes on joint ballot and 128 are necessary to elect. The state senate may be a tie on the question of Quay and anti-Quay. Returns from the Twenty-eighth con gressional district indicate the possibil ity that A. A. Clearwater, Republican, defeated Congressman J. K. P. Hall, Democrat, by a small majority. This would make the next Pennsylvania dele gation in congress 27 Republicans and 3 Democrats, a Republican gain of 5. IDAHO? Boise, Idaho, Nov. 7 Only 43 precincts out of the 400 in Idaho have been heard from. These gave the following results: McKinley 4,774; Bryan 4,810; Standrod for governor 4,647; Hunt for governor 4.67S; Morrison for congressman 4,767. Glenn for congress 4,551. '-the same pre cincts in 1898 gave Moss, Republican, for governor 2,370 and Steunenberg, Fusion, 3,918. The net Republican gain is 11.3 per cent. A gain of 9 per cent is needed to carry the state. From many of the heavy Republican precincts nothing has yet been heard and it seems some of the predicted percentage indicated will be maintained. On a basis of 50.000 votes cast for the Republican and Fusion tick ets which seems likely to be about the correct figure, the Republicans would have 26.400 and the Democrats 23,600, a Republican plurality of 2,800. It is rea sonably certain that the Republican na tional and state tickets have carried the state. No intelligent forecast can be given on the legislature. OREGON. Portland, Ore., Nov. 7. Oregon gave McKinley the largest plurality ever given a candidate for office in this state. With more than half of the total vote of the state counted the result is as fol lows: McKinley, 27,126: Bryan, 17,073; McKinley's plurality, 10.053. Portland, Ore., Nov. 7. One hundred and seventy-one precincts in Washing ton out of 1,637, give McKinley 8,771, Bryan 6,582. For governor, Frinke, Republican, 7, 355; Rogers, Democrat, 7,173. Returns show that although McKinley will carry the state of Washington by 6,000 to 8,000, Rogers will probably be elected governor by a small plurality. Cushman and Jones, Republicans, are elected to congress. Nearly complete returns from all but six of the 32 counties in Oregon give Mc Kinley a plurality of 14,105. It is pro bable that later returns will increase this plurality. , DELAWARE. Wilmington, Del., Nov. 7. Returns are not all in yet from Kent and Sus sex counties and it may yet not be pos sible to say before this: afternoon which party has control of the state legislature. In any event it will be very close. The Democrats are claiming a majority on joint ballot, but the Republicans say they will control the legislature and elect two United States senators. The result of the vote in the country dis tricts is brought in by men on horse- ba'ck and there are no telegraphic or tel ephone facilities to aid in getting the fig ures quickly. Dover, Del., Nov. 7. The legislature is very close as indicated by the returns up to noon. The Republicans are claim ing the organization on joint ballot, and say that they will elect two United States senators. The Democrats say they are appre hensive that Senator Farlow, of Laurel, the Democrat who finally gave his sup port to Addicks, Republican, in the last legislative deadlock over the United States senatorship, will hold the balance of power in the incoming legislature. Wilmington, Del., Nov. .7 Returns re ceived this afternoon definitely determ ined the political division of the next Deleware legislature. It is Republican in each branch and will two United States senators of that party. In the Twelfth Republican district the vote for representative was a tie be tween Bayard Heisel, Democrat, Theo. F. Clark, Republican. The house will, resolve the tie in favor of the Republi cans. of the upeRlibasnc of the Republicans the next legislature will stand: House, 15 Democrats and 20 Republi cans: senate, 9 Republicans and 8 Dem ocrats; joint ballot, 23 Democrats and 29 Republicans. This will insure the Re publicans the United tSates senators if the two factions can agree upon candi dates. KENTUCKY. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 7. At 6 o'clock this morning the Courier Journal still claimed the state for Bryan by 13,091 and for Beckham for governor by 6,000. Republicans, however, claim the state for McKinley and Yerkes for governor by nearly 8.000. Over 200 precincts are still to be heard from. Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 7.

Are Hot Breads WbolesomeP That hot breads should be more Indi gestible than other hot foods does not sppm reasonable to many, even though thestatements be made on good author tv. These statements are deducted from ac tual results in rnont instances, but there are always two sides to a question, and it is only fair to give both, that the intelli gent housekeeper may f rm her own con clusions. Sweeping asserti ns, with citms? poss4ble exceptions, irequently have tVie opposite result from effect aimed at to remedy an evil, especially when they run counter to some favorite hnbit or indul gence on the -part of another. WHY NOT HOT HRKADR? When one considers the fact that other cooked foods ar.e considered more benefl ial when eaten warm thn cold, the theory that hot breads are " nwholesotne makes some one seek an explanation. The rea son that hot breads contain a certain amount of moisture should not interfere with their healthful digestion, all other conditions being favorable. Kmptoyintr good materials, especially flour, yeast and baking powder, and subject them to the proper process of mixing and baking, and why should the bread not be as whole some fresh from the oven other Btnrchv foods that are cooked vith the in telligent knowledge of how to convert raw material into proper food substances? Soggy bread and rolls, half d me by put ting such a mass of dough together that the length of time riven for baking is not sufficient to complete the work in a thor ough manner. If the heat is intwno enough to reach tho center of the dough, and there generate sufficient volume of steam from the moisture incorporated in the mass, the result is the bread is burned on the outside before the starch gran ules in the middle are disintegrated. If the ferment used is yeatft the plant is not killed, and when this is swaliowed with the moist, warm, sticky mass of half con verted starch the ferment is in its elem-nt and continues its work without any incon venience to itself, but very eonM'terab'e inconvenience and discomfort to the un fortunate consumer. Vnless the nature of yeast ferment is understood we do not see anv remedy for the exisling evil ex cept the use of other leavening principles, which furnish the carbon uioxide fiaa without fermentation. KNOWING THINGS. A knowledge of the common things of life is imperative for our comfort and well-being. Call it household chemistry, and, alas! many a housewife shaken hr bead in a doubt i ng wav and thinks it sounds all very fine; but hr mother never studied chemistry in order to be able to cook, and she was famous In her day not onlv for her good dishes, but for having brought up a strong and vigorous fam ily. And why? Not only were conditions then very different and the food materials in use of the tdmplfrst and most whole some kind, as it was probable before the age ff food adulterations, but that mother realized that she was building up a part of the nation's brain and brawn and di rected her work accordingly. Unfortun ately the many exnmph-s we have to show as the result of mother's system of feeding do not lead us to conclude that they ail worked wih the m.-jrne lntel)irnce. OUR GRANDMOTHERS KNEW SOME THING OF CHEMISTRY. That our grandmothers did have some considerable knowledge of chemistry in application to household uses is Khown in many of their old fmi y recipe b .okfl. Be fore the ue of baking powder was known they knew that in order to obtain the de sired lightness in their cakes thy m ist depend upon. the amount of air btat n into the batter a nd a No incorporated in t he white of egg. The heat expanded thij air and the albumen of the esrgn. being n t or hardened by th heat, formed the little cells that confined it and gave them a light cake or bread. THE FIRST BAKING POWDER. Necessity being the mother of invention and the housekeeper considering the amount of time and labor Fpent in this one direction, put on her thinking cap, and the result was a homemade baking pow der from wood a&hea and sour mil, tha two giving her the combination of acid and felJ&Ui needed. This, probably, was 2 "It t i jgH0Hf PWWBB BWIWW! 4 Vm.' W twtkc tentim." produced through tthe digestion of starch by our "exclusive process.
