Now, fft- , It Is said, even tho frivolous have ceased to p'l ' frivol and begun to think, tf ' It all began, according to tho best Information JK'. obtainable. In this way: Mrs. Blank spent De ft M. tober at Lenox. In the library of tho house , Tthere she was visiting she chanoed to And a :IC Monograph wrltton by tho late Prentioa Mul 3ji - ord, who was. found dead in a canoe down 1ST," Coney Island way on May 80. 1801. Mulford WJk tras first a sailor, thon a newspaper writer in SB Ban Francisco and Now York, and finally be & came a Spiritualist and a medium. Ho gave up I lira newspaper work to write pamphlets on topics 3W akin to what Is known now as Christian Science. p In the pamphlet whloh Mrs. Blank picked up 5Ws aho found this text from Emerson : $fc? " Hitch your wagon to a star." r. Theiesntence caught her. She read It aloud sjfif and llkod. tho way it soundod. Then she read ' further. The author of tho monograph main- JEp tainod that a man who would make up his mind ;?,;' hard enough could accomplish anything ho sot k bis mind on. Mrs. Blank was Intorcstcd and W-, BOt some more of Mul ford's books. From those ? ehe learned some very alluring things about yh thought. Sho learned that. If ono was Iff', 111, all ho or sho had to do was to . think hard that ho or sho was well and SC health -was restored. Now that struok aF Mrs. Blank very forcibly. Sho had long been ji ' a sufferer from dyspepsia. Physicians hadn't .' helped her and sho had Bottled down to tho St ' thought of being a chronlo dyspeptic Now sho al bad found a cure for tho 111. Straightway aho JliN began to think sho was perfectly well. That liE' Bight, according to tbo story, sho nte all Bort of lltJr things for dinner. When her hostess marvelled gf at her temerity, Mrs Blank smiled sweetly and jl'' Oh, I haven't been bothered With indigestion let"" tor a longtime." ijy That struck the hostess as a bit queer, Inas- Jw ' much as Mrs. Blank hail complained of her old ;ff malady only that morning. However, she said !j& nothing and in a few dnys Mrs. Blank returned 3? to town. The story Is that when she negan at M tho top'of her visiting list lato In October nil her & ' friend remarked on how" woll sho was looking. iffcl Aftnrtttlme Mrs. Blank revealed tho secret, ;: She told about the books she had read, tho lilll' tblnkrng'sho had done and tho cure that bad ';,3, been eltected. All the women of her ncqualnt- K3&. ance sotmed to have something tho matter with &vt them and they bcctimo greatly interested In tbo PfSLJ thinking process. ISJS&r Tney wanted to know more about it, and ono ESS?:- day Sirs. Blank gave a luncheon to about a dox- I'fe , en friends and told all she knew about how to I'lfi? think. That was tho beginning. Other lunch- Jg" eon parties were given by othor womon of Mrs. tSJ Ulank'a acquaintance. And at these tho wnmon ? told of tbtdr experiences at thinking. These S& think luncheons nave now becomo a fixture. "If A woman In upper Filth avonuo became in- $ tercstcd. and concluded that there must be sue- Bg ceBsora'tif I'renlice Mulford still In tho flesh. is Bhe searched for one nnd nnallyMound ono. a . woman'. This woman bade namefortho process $ of thinking oneself into u desired condition of it mind or body. Sho called It menticulture, nnd ST now that's what they nil call it. Hercrcedwns y? a little different from llulford'n. Sho hold the doctrlno of thought-transference. ?i According to thin teacher, thought can be jp , transferred from ono mind to another as rap- M Idly oa the telegraph transfers words. All that K Is necessiiry is to think hard enough. Sue as- 'fjp,. sorts, for instance, thnt a person's spiritual life 'ff. may be marie better by resoluto thinking. Think ."- of Chrimund Ills example. Continue to think 'iv. .about Him. Think hard. Little by little the f- moral llfoot the thlnkeri-wltr improve. As he 55:; thinks, tho thought crystallizes in action.

In this as- ' llstitnce comes in tho thounht-transference. A '3; person who la sound of wind and limb and mind Jj- incite a friend who has n cold or consumption Bjv or any other ill. The well person begins to ',i think of an ideal healthy person. Ho sits up m DlghtsandSundnysand holidays with his friend ?!' thinking about his own healthy Ideal of health. A After a time tho person who Is 111 catches a Trt faint notion of this physically perfoct person. Then the notion becomes clearer nnd Anally he (Bets an uncloudod mental picturoot the physi cally perfect man. Onco he has that idea ho can think of no unhealthy person and that he cannot think of himself as otherwise than per fectly woll. As pain or illness of any kind is experienced only as tbo sensation is transmitted to the brain, tho person who can think only of tho physically porfect ideal cannot experience a pensation of IllneBS. This is tho menttculturo that is Interesting the women so mightily and tamo of tho men, too. At a luncheon of ono of tho devotees on Friday the parlors of bcr big house on North Wash ington square were crowded with those who had come to Bit at tbo feet of tbo teacher. In tho company was a well-known ox-collcgs Prcsi ; dent nnd a high church dlenltary. Boforo the ij.. lecture began, the lecturer Bald: Si" "Now there must be absolute quiet. It is f Impossible for thought to answer thought when there Is the least noise. You can readily Imagine how Impossible! It would be for a tele- i emptier to transmit n message, tf there was a ) 't Bjeat hubbub in his olllce. So It is with thought. i ;.. Noise breaks tho thread." , . Thenagreatsllence fell. Thelecturer began her b jr talk on menticulture and continued for nearly : i an hour.

HI, but Justn little ill. wlthrheumniHmorgout, , f, or something olse, undnll thoso indisposed to ' I think about health. The thinking was to con- .

Jong it would havo continued had not tho pro- & ceedlngsbecn interrupted in a most distressing . way. A half hour or more passed, when the meditations of the thinkers were Interrupted by i :', thlnoxclumntlon: j Vi "Mystaritl My train leaves in ten minutes! !

CAUSE OF TnC CDLXHifVX FlttE. Carelessness In Handling Oasellne Cnnstsl aa Itipleslan In I he Building. Cntcuno, Dec. 20. The true story of the or igin of tho Coliseum II ro was learned this even ing. It has been suspected thnt tho fire was not causod by an electric current used In operating an X-ray machine, and Incen diarism has been hinted, at. It was loarned that a small can of gasoline was taken Into tho building by Murray Morley, proprietor of tho X-ray apparatus. Morley dented with emphasis that ho had either had gasoline In hi exhibit space or had any use for IU Ho said he had been told on Friday afternoon boforo the Are thu t someone had tried to deliver to him a can of gasoline, but bo had thon said there must bo somo mistake, as he certainly baa ordered no gasoline. Hulf a dozen exhibitors said they know a can of gasoline had been taken iuto the part of the building where the flamos first wero discovered. Frederick de Novas said he saw the can taken into Dr. Valentine's apace, and the flro flashed first from th'oreand not from Morley's exhibit, A. H. Wtpglns of tbo Benson restaurant corrob orates this statement. Morley either made a misstatement or was mistaken. A five-gallon can of gasoline wns taken into his booth and tho fluid was used to keep his mnohtno warmed to a certain degree of temperature by torches, such as street peddlers use with supply tanks thrcoor four feet above tho torches. In Morley'B employ was a young mannamod Murphy, and tt wns his carelessness that caused the destruction of tbe Collsoum and IU contents. Murphy found that tbe gasoline tunks needed filling, and ho took the (lvo-gallon can, opened it and started to reclonish the tanks without stopping to extinguish tbe blazing torches. In an instant tho gasoline Ignited. Murphy escaped with slight burns, but had to flyto aavo his life. The X-rny exhibit was direotly under tho Cuban Village, which occupied spare in tho north gallery. Tho performers In the Cuban Village all had narrow escapes. Somo of tho dancing girls were dragged out. They wore dressing for the evening's performance and saved but little of their clothing. Two of them, scantily clad, wero forcod to walk several blocks before they found n hospitable house. Murphy hns kept In hiding since the Are. but ho admitted to several persons that bis careless ness was responsible for tbo fire. zatbst ifjsirs mon BAiraoy.

Tho Vico-Prcsidont of tho Republic Domingo Mendes Capote, Is In charge ad interim of Maso's office Mondez Capoto writes to a friend In Puorto Prlnclpo: "The Illness of our good and honest Maso greatly alarms us, more on account of his delicate health than bocauso of tbe vlolenco of tho attack Itself. The loss of such n man would bo a groat misfortune for the republic of Cuba." Thero is great indignation In Havana among the uncompromising Spaniards bocauso Qcn. Blanco personally called on Consul-Oeneral Lee to ask his Interposition with the insurgent leader, Aranguron, to save Col, Ruiz's life. The ptory that La Lueha published here and that was cabled to New York, to' tho effect that the HuBtlan Consul asked Gen. Loo to send his sec retary to Aranguren's camp on bohalf of Ruiz, is not truo. Tho fact Is that Captain-General Blanco himself, accompanied by Secrot iry Congosto, callod nt tho American Consulate, 70 Cuba street. Not llndlng Gon. Leo tbore, they went to tho Hotel de Inglatorra, where tho Consul-Genoral lives, nnd talked with him for about two hours. Thon tho American Consul-Oeneral decided, upon the formal reuuost of the Captatn-Oeneral. to send Mr. Tosca. a Secretary of tho Amorlcau Consulate, to the insurgent lines. Tho uncompromising Spaniards here beltevo that the Incident Is humiliating to Spain, in view of thi- allusions In Prostdcnt McKlnley's message to forcible Intervention by tho United States In Cuba. Thoy consider that the step taken by Captnln-Gonoral Blanco Is an official recognition of the United States as a third party in the Cuban war. The mission of Mr. Mandrlgal, Consul of the United States in Sanctl Splrltus, is bellevodhere to relato to matters of much more Importance than the mere delivery by Gen. Gomez of the be longings of the late American correspondent, Mr, Crosby. Mr. Madrigal, who has been pro moted rocently to a more Important American Consulate In Colombia, nnd who is very well known horo on account of tho refusal of Gen. Weyler and Canovas's Cabinet to grant him his exegunfiir on account of his alleged sympathy with tho patriots. Is said to have beon Intrusted by the Amortcan Administration with tho mis sion of receiving officially fi;oin Gen. Gomo7. tho final word of the Cuban Commander-in-chief as to the possibility of a peaceful arrangement be tween Spain and tho patriots. Evory ono hero Jeels sure that Gen. Gomez's answer will bo that tho Cubans will accept only complete inde pendence It is more than ten days since Mr. Madrignl started from Sanctl Splritus to tho camp of Gomez, and up to this tlmo nothing has beon heard of him. It is certain th.it no premeditated ovll could befall him in Gen. Gomez's camp. The General Is a cloeo friend of Madrigal, knew of his proposed trip, and wroto that it would give him much pleasure to rccclvo an official representative of tho United States. Tho dangers of tho trip would como from the savage Spanish guerrillas wbo swarm around Sanctl Splrltus and are not accustomed to respect evon tho passports issued by tbe Spanish Generals. Nevertheless tbo distance Is so considerable and the roads aro so poor that, for somo days longer, thero is no serious cause for concern. FXOZElt MEAT FOlt 1CUSSTA.

Tbe Man Wbo started the PI re Left a Waist eant wllh Certain Papers In II Which Are aid Io llrvtal His Ideality The Vn llaveu Detectives Bapect to Arrest II Ira Noon. New Havkn, Deo. 20. The detectives of the local Polico Dopartmont havo boon at work since yotterday morning, hoping to solve tho attompt at arson on the Tontinu Hotel, where a hundred lives were In jcopardy.on Christmas morning, To-day'a developments havo been so satisfac tory that tho detectives say they know tbe nauioof the man and that they will have him under arrest before morning, Tho story given out to-night tends to prove that there Is a con spiracy, and that tho man whom tho police are now seoklng was In tho employ of the man who inspired tho attempt to flro tho Tontine. This ts tho third attempt to burn tbe building. The Tontlno wont Into new hands in June last, nnd tho now proprietor, Georgo T. Whlto, was for several years with Ileubloln Bros, of Hart ford, and later with tbelr branch houso In Now Haven. He has managed the house with suc cess and also In such a, way as to secure tbe on mltvof certain persons. 'Tho fire waa discov ered about &:20 o'clock by tho night watchman, John Burton. Tbo incendiary registered as R. Locke of Nowark, N, J., shortly before midnight on Fri day. Locko paid his bill in advance and was shown to tho room hy Burton. Tho stranger carried n telescopo valise, and did not once al low it to leavo his hands until tho room was reached, declining all offers of assistance from Burton. This incident aroused Burton's curios ity, and when ho returned to tho olllco ho aaid to Mr. Poole: "No. 10 acts suspicious. I am going to watch him." That Burton was correct In his deductions was shown by later developments. From that tlmo tho hours passod without incident until 5 o'clock. Then Burton uindo bis rounds and found overything all right. Ten minutes liter, however. It occurred to him thnt ho would tako a look at room 10. An ho reached tbe third floor ho heard a peculiar nolso nnd. looklhi; un. saw Ijockc. nartlv drossed. Uoscondlng from tho fourth floor with his arms full of nowapnpers. Burton asked 1oeko why ho was wandurlng about the house, and not re ceiving n satisfactory answer, mado a rush up to tho fourth floor and just nt the lending dis covered a bright light coming from room 0, In tho fionl of the house. Knowing that tho room was unoccupied. Bur ton forced tho door nnd found it nblnzo. In his histo the man who bad sot. thn flro hnd left behind him a waistcoat, a pair of rubbers and tho telescope valise. It wan In tho pockets of tho vest that tbo evidence revealing thu man's Identity was discovered. Thero wore found a rhoap watch und chain, a compass, and a cnBO of small caind'a hair brushes, such as stage people use in making up. Tho most Im- Sortant discovery. howocr, were a number of lank bill-heads nnd a promissory note. Tho billheads bore the advertisement of J. i .Mori- rh of Hadson, Mnss. Merlgnn's business wns enllng In paints oils, varnishes, turpentine and henrine. Tho promissory note, which waa signed by Morlgan, wns for only $7, and was made payable to R. English. This showed pretty clearly that tho name Locko was nn alius, and that something nt IcaBtwas known of tho incendiary at Hudson. Locke's or English's method of cscapo from tho hotel was daring. Ho first dropped from tbo window, a distance of 4 feot, to a shed, then 7 feet to another shed, nnd then 10 foot to still an other shed. From this shed ho Blld down a wntor conductor, a distance of twenty-five foot, to tho ground. Then ho went out of tbe gato on tbo Court street Bldo nnd in plain eight of sovoral policemen. From thero nil trace of him waa lust, and, though nn hour later overy hotel and sftloan In the contro of tho city was visited and all the trains wero closely inspected, nothing moro was heard of him.

The crust was cast in sections and then set in place by four plo moulders. Sixteen pounds of butter wero used In shortoning It, and twenty-four pounds of flour in making it. Tho lnsldesoftho plo woighod eighty pounds. Tho plo was baked in a steam oven, niid wbon it was cool Mr. Thompson sent for a New Your'B cako icing architect and the architect built n. frosted race track on the roof of tho big pie. He added a judges' stand mid a bunch of sugar rnco horses, Dolando winning. Hero it might be wolllostuto that tho funeral crowd on Park row always rofer to Dolando as a sugar raco horso. When tho Icing architect's work had been completed five plo moulders lifted the big plo on a pio Btrctcber nnd carried it out to a two hortie truck. Then thu big plo was driven up to Mr. .Median's houso. opposite Mount Morris Park. In trying to get the pio bidenieo through tho doorway tho pio handlers broke it. Then they took it into Mr. Meehnn'B parlor in pieces nnd put it together on four tables. Nowa of tho brenkago wns sent to tbo Corloars Hook plo foundry. A squad from tho plo repair gang went up to Median's house and repaired the breaks. Tho pio was on exhibition all dny Christmas. Yostordav all tho neighbors callod to look at It. To-dny It will be sawed apart and sections of it will be sent around to Median's friends. The President of tho pie bakery. Mr Thomp son, won soveral thuusind dollars on Dolando last seasou.
