AUGUST WILD FLOWERS. BOMB VARIETIES THAT ARE FOUND IN THIS VICINITY— THE "LIVE FOR KVER" IN JOHN BUR ROUGHS*S BLACK BOOK. Aufc-us: flowers have a. distinct character, wholly different from the shy "flowers that bloom In the faring," that seem half afraid to venture Into .-!»;ht. and from the June and July blossoms that are essc-ctlally "young" and appealing in their beauty. The flowers of August are confident, rcature and somewhat arrogant In demeanor. They have passed the bashful stage, and stand fearlessly to meet the curious or friendly gaze, Fta.teJy at growth, glowing of color, pungently fragrant wfth woody odors. Many of th« owners of country homes are singu larly careless of these lovely wild flowers, that would repay the trouble of planting by luxuriant flowering- at a time when "garden flowVrs," bo culled, seem to be tired of blooming. The rose mallow, which prows luxuriantly on Long Island and In parts of New-Jersey. Is a native of salt meadows, but thrives in any moist soil if trans planted, and Is one of the most beautiful of Au gust flowers. It is tall and stately, the stem some- Times reaching the height of eight or ten feet. It oerlves its name from the blossom's form, which is not unlike the wild rose, and from Its color, which Is a lustrous pink. The purple gerardia. with its pink tinted lavender blossoms, supplies lavish adornment for the fields In August Bad partly through September. The plant itself lacks the dignity of the rose mallow, but the flowers have a saucy, dancing gTace that gives them a. peculiar charm. The moth mullein Is another luxuriant bloomer, and the flower Is sometimes yellow, sometimes pink, but more fre- Cuently is •white. Throughout the Middle States the loosestrife rrows abundantly, and may be transplanted to al most any soil if kept well moistened. It is im mensely effective, with Its long, purple spikes of bloom, and ought to be more familiar than it Is in this vicinity. The milkweed Is one of the most widely known ana certainly one of the prettiest of August biooras. It has a number of representatives !n Its lara'ly, of which the windroot. or butterfly weed, as il Is called ln me districts, is perhaps the pret tiest. The color is flame orange, and the little blossoms are massed together In gorgeous clusters tbat nod high above all surrounding vegetable growths with a rollicking gayety of aspect that often evokes a sympathetic smile. *-*!-« live forever Is an August bloomer that has «¦ pretty purple flower, but may claim the unenvia b'.i distinction of being ona of th© few Bowers of •vhich John Buxrou^fs could find nothing good to *ay. What he does vrtta of It Is ln this vein: "We have no native plant fo nearly Indestructible as Faix L en &r l jlne or Uve forever, which our grand mothers nursed and for which they are cursed by ipaiiy a farmer. I have seen acres of meadow land destroyed by It. The way to drown an amphibious tUniai U never to How it to come to the sur lace to breathe, and this Is the way to kill live lurever. It lives by Its stalk and leaf mo ¦ than py ua root, and if cropped as soon as it comes to tfte burface will In time perish. It laughs the piOugh, The hoe and the cultivator to scorn, but 12*™* herflj will eventually scotch it." ¦The purple Eiier meets no such enmity. It sways caeerfully in the faintest breeze, and, true to Its laniily tradition— for it is of th<» sunflower race— •»*M its delicate tj:ue blossom to the sun through August aiid September. It has a special tenderness Jor ku.ucxi rod, apparently, as it almost always appears close hf-slde It. Tbe rattlesnake root is another member of the sunflower family, and derives Its popular name ?rom a belief That its root made Into a tea will euro E&ake l-ites. It has a tall stem, somewhat rec.jigh in color, and tell shaped blue (lowers that grow la c!L.s:rrs. Dear to port and artist is the Cringed gentian. t'..e or August's rveetest flowers. Its blue flower i* a tiny trumpet in shape and fringed at tho ecges fairy scissors. It grows freely In most ci the Northern States, and even as far South aa while westward it reaches almost to the Kneky Mountains. The meadow beauty— Rhexia virginlca— ls an Au pwi flowering plant, with large pink or lavender tMOjMsom*=. Thoreau says of it: "The scarlet leaves ar.a stems of the rhexia, now out of flower, make tumos-t aa brieht a. patch in ... as the corners did.

After a moment's pause the miniature querist proceeded with the equally bewildering questions: "How much coal do you burn? Whit is your husband's salary? Has be any bad habits?" By this time the presiding genius of the t.ihie felt culled upon to ask her hi mole guest what made bet ask such strange questions. "Well," was the Innocent reply, "mother told me to behave like a lady, and when ladles call at our house they always ask mother those questions."— (London Spare Moments. NEW- YORK DAILY TRIIUM:, \y;j >\i;si >a \ . JULY :;i. l!M)l. THAT OUTING HAT. IN ITS BEST FORM IT GIVES A PICTU RESQUE TOUCH TO THE TOILET ALMOST EVTC-RT WOMAN HAS ONE OR MORE. The favoritism shown for the so-called outing hat Is a conspicuous sign of the manifold requirements of a woman's summer outfit at the present day. A few years ago such an article was almost wholly unnecessary with many women, but now that golf, tennis, yachting and bicycle riding are Indulged In so freely not only one, but several, of these hata prove extremely useful and stylish. Never beforw was the outing hat so truly be witchlne ns it Is now. With this, as with the gowns of the season, white is the preferred color both in hat and trimming, although It Is frequently touched off with some pretty tint. As for shapes the sailor again holds a prominent place, many of tho more fanciful hat? being hardly more than modifications of the sailor. Just now hats made of different varieties of grass in natural tints are much In request, as are also the English split straw and Panama braids. An extremely handsome model pallor hat of white English split straw braid has The edge of the brim bound with white gnlloon and the crown encircled by a hnnd of black velvet ribbon, terminating In a flnt how at the left side. A heavy plume of white cog feathers, flecked with black. Is confined on the left side of tho brim by a rhinestone buckle, and sweeps around th* brim In front to within a few inches of the back. Another extremely simple but unusually picturesque hat tn be worn on the beach Is on tho sailor order, having a medium tall crown and wide. Boft brim, slightly dipped In the front. The only trimming Is an Inch and a half band of black velvet ribbon tied In n bow directly in the back. The bow has long loops falling helow the brim of the hat. while the ends hang down slightly below the loops to the wearer's shoulders This trim ming may be modified by making the loops short and the. long ends alone to fall over the briTO. Draperies, quills, wings and fruit vie with one another as decoration for some, of the really elabo rate Fhore and country hats. A dainty fancy In trimming one of the heavy new grass braids, of ecru tint. Is to twist about the low crown a full drapery of white satin merveilleux. polka dotted in M.i'-k. and over this to drape a plume of whito t"tras feathers, carrying It from the left to the right side. The shirt waist hat. with Its flat, broad crown, ex tending out even as far as the edge of the brim, and Its trimming of full satin or mull, between crown and brim, remind one forcibly of a great plecfl of layer cake with rich creamy filling. On some women, however, this is jaunty and becoming. One of these broad, flat crowned hats seen on a well dressed woman was trimmed In peculiarly effective fashion. The hat was of brown straw, and was enveloped In a pretty brown tulle veil. Just beneath the brim one could catch a glimpse of a trailing wreath of small poppies and cornflowers. Although hats with brims, rolling upward are frequently Been, they are evidently not so high in favor as those th« brims of which slope, over the eyes. The odd device of thrusting the quill through the brim is another feature of the styles of this sum mer, and there is absolutely no limit to the fan tastic angles which the quills are thus made tr» assume. The white canvas hat. with its decoration of white mull and white cog feathers, is of extremely light weight, and therefore attractive for bicycling. t»nnis or other active sports, while the short brimmed sailor, with simple band trimming, is al ways in taste on tho water. Walking and moun tain hats. too. are worn in the style which has the crown indented on top and sides. These are pretty and appropriate when made In white and orna mented with the fashionable cog feathers. THE COMMON OFFERING.

WOMAN HOLDS IT IN HER HAND AS 188 STANDS BEFORE HUSBAND AND CHIL DREN AND SWALLOWS ACID. Standing In front of a large mirror with a crucifix in her hand, and in the presence of her husband and children. Mrs. Bridget Higgins, thirty-five years old, of No. 196 Eighth-aye.. committed suicide by taking a quantity of car bolic acid 'n her apartments just after 8 a. m. yesterday. Her husband did not realize what she was about, and regarded her curiously when she stood in front of the mirror with the uplifted crucifix. He did not see the vial of carbolic acid which she h<Md in the other hand. After saying a short prayer the •voman drained the vial. The husband rushed toward her and the chil dren screamed as their mother dropped to the floor. The crucifix fell on her breast as if it had been placed there. Farrell Reilly, who is said to be a relative of the woman, rushed into the room, and, seeing the situation, ran for Dr. Bissings, of No. 244 West Twentieth-st. The physician applied emetics and antidotes, but the woman had taken too much nf the acid to be saved. Despondency and melancholia, resulting from illness, and dejection because her husband had been for soitip time out of work were said to be the cause of the suicide. GOOD CHEER.

The police do not feel kindly toward Kletchka. who, they say, deceived them. He led them to be lieve that he could produce strong evidence against Rosenblum, whereas he was unable to furnish anything beyond suspicion and belief Assistant District Attorney Hoy Informed Magistrate Do.. ley, In th« Adams-»t. court, that he had no evidence against Rosenblum, and wanted to have him dis charged. • • Foster L.

ONE OPENED YESTERDAY OF JlTO.nno FOR MANHATTAN AND THE RRONX--E77.nnn CONTRACT THROWN OUT. The bids for the contract for the removal and final disposition of garbage, and rubbish tn the bor oughs of Manhattan and The Bronx were opened In the .ifflre of Street Cleaning Commissioner Nagle yesterday. The garbage removal contr.-ict was let about two months ago for a term of five years to the Sanitary T'tlliration Company at $277,000 a yenr. This price was so excessive, as on an old contract only 559.990 was asked, that at a meeting of the Board of Estimate the contract was thrown out and the form was changed to make it an annual contract instead of one for five, years. There w.-re two bids for Manhattan and one for The Bronx. They were: McOtl] & Co., No. 12S East Fourteenth-st.. }30,0iK> for The Bronx and $14d.iV>0 for Manhattan: Jamo; J. Barrett. Xo. ;*4 Bergen-st.. Brooklyn. $130,000 for Manhattan. Barrett will probably get the bid for Manhattan and McCJill for The Bronx. The Sanitary Utiliza tion Company did not bid again, it being under stood that it would stnnrl by its five year bid and tr.ke it to the courts. V. F. BlcQllt of the McOill company, was present at the opening of the bids, and said afterwnrd: "We are perfectly satisfied with the bid for The Bronx. I am now in a position to fight If the Sani tary Utilization Company takes the former bids to the courts. The price of $45,000 for The Bronx was ridiculous in the other bids. There is not a city In the United States wfvre garbage cannot be re moved for Jl So a ton. while the> other people thought they would need about $4 a ton." Mr. McOill remarked the fact that no certified che.-k was inclosed with Barrett's bid. Instead. V.-W in gold certificates was inclosed In an enve lope. 'lederer wanted to fight. TROT'BLE AROSE WHEN HE TRIED TO AVAIL HIMSELF OF JUDGE'S PERMIS SION' TO SPEAK TO HIS SON. Georgo W.

They had been before Jus tice Hooker. In the Supreme Court, on the return of the writ of habeas corpus obtained hy Mr. Lederer to compel his wife to surrender their five year-old son Maltland. Mr. Le.ierer's lawyer objected to the return of the. writ, saying that it had not been made out In the right way. After some discussion an oppor tunity *o revise the return was given to Mrs. L*derer"s lawyer, and Justice Hooker adjourned the, hearing until to-morrow. In the mean time., the Justice said, Mr. I^defier should be permitted to see hie child. After the adjournment Mrs. I.erierer left with the boy. She was accompanied by her two Bisters and several m^n Mr Lederer started after them and tried to talk to his son. The friends of Mrs. Lederer blocked his way. The father Insisted upon seeing the boy. and was pushing by the mm when he re elved a blow In his stomach from the elbow of one of the men. Then the man said to Mr. Lederer: "You're a low down 'Sheeny.' thafs what you are." "You're a traitor, you scoundrel," replied Mr. Lederer. "You have hitherto pretended to l>f> my friend." The man then repeater! his insulting epithet, and Lederer made a rush for him, crying: 'Let me gei at him. and I'll have him a subject for the hospital!" Friends ..f Lederer restrained him, and Mrs. Lederer and her party hurrle.l away. READY TO REPORT O.V X. Y. C. TUNNEL.

Elias Levy, and his brother spent a large part of yesterday in the county courthouse in a vain attempt to serve Mrs. Elizabeth Youngerman with the sum mons and complaint In an action for an absolute divorce. The pursuit of Mrs. Youngerman began on the termination of an argument as to whether Mrs. Youngerman or her husband should have the care and custody of their two children, which question was left undecided by Justice Gildersleeve, in Special Term, Part 11. of the Supreme Court. Mrs Youngerman and a friend, a Mrs. Hogan, evidently knew that the papers were to be served, and remained in the building. The two women rushed from the second floor to the top floor, closely followed by the holder of the pa pers, while Mr. Levy and the husband watched every mode of egress from the building. The women visited the telephone room, and after an hour again went upstairs. Mrs. Younger man got into an empty courtroom and closed the door. Her brother-in-law kept watch out side, while the husband kept guard on the sec ond floor and a third man watched the elevator entrance on the ground floor. The watchers kept vigil in front of the court room until before .*» o'clock, when they ap parently got tired and left. In the mean time Mrs. Youngerman and Mrs. Hogan were com fortably enjoying the 000 l breezes in one of the big vacant courtrooms As soon aa the hus band and his friends had gone the two women hurried downstairs by the elevator and Quickly slipped out through a side entrance.

THINKS RAW SUGAR SHOULD BE PRO TECTED AS WELL. AS THE REFINED. Several days ago in an interview Henry O. Have meyer, president of the American Sugar Refining Company, made several assertions concerning the free admission of sugar to this country and the beet sugar industry In California and elsewhere that have not obtained unqualified approval in the sugar trade. W. Bayard Cutting, chairman of the board of directors of the American Beet Sugar Company, is one of the dissenters. Yesterday he said concerning this interview: I observe that Mr. Havemeyer la made to state that the 'beet sugar men and the cane sugar growers would not object to the admission of raw sugar from Cuba and Porto Rico free of duty." an.l that "what the growers her** want is a tariff on refined sugar. Give them a tariff on the refined product of half a cent. That will take care of th*»m, and we can get free raw sugar from Cuba and Porto Rico" And, "Congress will give us that kind of a tariff." Mr. Havemeyer has apparently confounded the refiners (the trust) with the growers. The trust would, of course, like their raw material free and their manufactured product protected, but the grower would seem to be as desirous of protecting: his product as th« miner of copper or the grower of cqtton. These would not be satisfied with a duty on wire or prints. The persistent opposition ln the past to free raw sugar by the beet and cane sugar men should clearly indicate their probable future action, in spite of Mr. Havemeyer's statement. Should any change of tariff be agitated, it Is more likely that the beet and cane sugar producers will prefer the abolition of the differential duty on th* refined and Its transference to the raw sugar. As to the action of Congress, It is incredible that this Republican administration will break such a solemn pledge to the sugar growers as that contained in the plank of th« national platform of UM Speaking of the cutting of sugar prices in Cali fornia. Mr Havemeyer says: "Our company has nothing whatever to do with that fight. The fight was brought about by the consumption of beet sugar not equalling the production. Oxnard wants to work off some of his superfluous product, and he thinks if he can make it appear that he's fighting the trust he would get rid of some leftover beet sugar." Mr. Havemeyer has evidently been Im posed upon. The American Beet Sugar Company (personified as "Oxnard" ln Mr. Havemeyer's inter view) has never had any trouble in disposing of its product. It had not one pound of sugar "left over" on April 5. It is manifestly preposterous to sug gest that the cutting of sugar prices in July was caused by a desire to dispose of sugar which was all sold three months before the cut. COLER DOESN'T LIKE COOK. THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AUDITOR'S BOND 13 FILED— A MISTAKE IN THE CON TROLLER'S OFFI<~E. Secretary Palmer of the Board of Education said yesterday that the -statement that the bond of H. R. M. Cook, auditor of the board, had not been re newed at the expiration of Its date was untrue. Mr. Palmer has the renewed bond in his 'possession. He called up the bondsman, the Union Surety and Guaranty Company of No. IS Broadway, to learn if there was anything wrong with it. John N. Bliss, general agent of the company, said the mistake was In the Controller's office. -We have ben on Mr. Cook's bond for two years," he said. "The bond expired on June 1. and the re newal was made out and executed on May 16. We did not notify the Controller. He does not. as far as we are Informed, have anything to do -with that bond. Mr. Cook is bonded to the Board of Educa tion and it was to the board that we made our report." The error was in Controller Color's office. The old bond sent down from the Board of Education was found there yesterday, and the new bond la where it should be, in the care of the Finance De partment of the Board of Education. The incident, however, Shows that the Controller Is not on espe cially good terms with Mr. Cook, or that he Is not pleased with that section of the Davis law which takes from the City Controller all power over the funds of the Department of Education. On Monday, when asked to say something about the reported failure of Mr. Cook to renew his bond. Mr. Coler said: "Mr, Cook la beneath contempt. I have nothing to say about him." When told to-day that the bond had been re newed Mr. Coler said he had nothing to add to what he had said on Monday. When one of his clerk"* found the expired bond on tile in the office Mr. Coler hi.' this to say: "Well, it seems we have, got It. We do not have to keep it anyway. The Davis law allows the Board of Education to spend as much money as It likes In the way It likes. It sends to us for -i barrel of money, and we have to give it. Then when the barrel is empty we have to nil it again We have not the last bond of this man. and have I a means Of knowing if it was filed unless the finance committee of the Board of Education noti fies us We don't get the bond unless the board should consider my safe more secure than Its own and send It here." DRIVER INJURED; BOMB KILLED. PASSENGERS OF CAR THROWN OUT IX COL- j LISION WITH AN ICE WAGON*.

Justice McAdam in the Supreme Court yesterday granted the motion made by Bmanuel J. Myers. counsel for Fire Commissioner John J. Scannell and 'William L. Marks, transferring the indictments against them from the Court of General Sessions to the Supreme Court. The application was op posed by District Attorney Phllbln. who held that the cases should be speedily tried, and that there was no reason for the transfer. Fire Commissioner Scannell was Indicted on two charges, charging him with neglect of his duties and with awarding contracts for supplies for the Fire Department to firms who employ Marks aa agent. Marks and Scannell were Jointly Indicted on the charge of conspiracy. Justice McAdam In his decision says: Another circumstance that gives Importance to the trial is that the defendant Scannell claims to have acted In all the transactions which are called in question by the advice of the law officer of the city government, to whom he was required to ap peal In all cases in which he needed advice affect ing his duties. Various difficult questions of law will arise in regard to Scannells duties in award- Ing contracts on behalf of the Fire Department, and as to the extent to which said defendant Is protected by the advice ©I the Corporation Coun sel. The voluminous papers presented for and against the application conclusively demonstrate the gravity of the charges and the Importance o t the legal questions Involved. The application is clearly brought within the au thorities ' which hold that, under such circum stances, good cause for the removal of the indict ' ments into this court exists.
