Of come every one knew when they were engaged and every one pretended to be surcrUed when they heard it was suddenly broken on. it was nrst taut the liad broken it off, then that his heart had chanced, tint finally she con. fused that she had been so irritable, so aeprcssett and blue that she had fairly driven him away. Her (rood looks were vanishing-. She was eettinr thin, pale, and hollow-cheek. ed, with dark circles around her eyes. Suddenly all society was pleased again to hear of the engage ment being: renew .ed, and it was not loss; before a beau tiful and radiant bride was taken to the attar. She had regained ber pood looks, her former happy disposition and strong nerve all through a secret a ftjend.raye 'her. A few bottles of Dr. Pierce Favorite Prescription is what made two more lives happy and a radiant bride more beautiful then she had ever appeared before.

IGORROTES AGREE TO USE SPOONS Cranberries With Thanksgiving Dinner Could Not Be Kalcn Willi Fingers. A serious dilemma in -which the Igor rotes found themselves yesterday was quickly relieved by a suggestion from Antera. the bright youngster of the Igor rote, and the subsequent order for eighty five tin spoons -n hich followed the sugges tion. The point of American table etiquette which disturbed the equanimity cf the Igorrote village for several minuter was the rc-nilt of Governor Hunt's order early yesterday morning for a largo number of strictly American eatables' for a Thanks giving dinner, one of which wa3 cranber ries. "What are cranberries?" Inquired the mystified headhunters of Lur.on. when they beard Doctor Hunt give tho order. These little brown natives of the island admitted to having heard of American turkeys, but they confessed utter ignor ance of cranberries. When an explanation of this American product wan given they were more dis gruntled than ever. "But how can we ever cat such things with our fingers?" they choroused excitedly. When tho Igorrotes tlrst enme to St. Louis many kind-hearted persons who'saw them eating rice vitn their fingers sent them .spoons and forks. At this tlmo cooking and eating utensils went a-begging with the igorrotes much the same as American clothing. They insisted on their own way of living, and live that way tlicy did, until circumstances compelled them to adopt the American ways to some extent. Yesterday, when the dories of a real American Thanksgiving dinner wero out lined to them, they became sufficiently in terested in even detail to listen to most any proposition bearing on the promised eent. During the consultation, it looked for several minutes as though cranberries -would be discarded at the coming feast. Then little Antera suggested that they get some spoons of their own, none of those which had been given them being found. His suggestion met with approval and Doctor Hunt at once ordered elghty-nvo spoons for the Thanksgiving feast. "CALIFORNIA ARROW" TO FLY OVER NEW YORK CITY.

First Burgf-load of St. Louis Uef- nse Taken Io Chesley Island. GATHERED ON NORTH SIDE. Seventeen-Mile Trip From Xorth -Market Street -Made in Two Hours Southern District Collei'lioibs To-Dav. The tlrst bargeload of garbage haiid'cd by the city under tho new system left the foot of North Market street yesterday afternoon nt 4 o'clock, and reached the dumping ground at Chesley Island, seven teen miles south, about ti o'clock. Tlie garbage had been collected 'in the northern part of the city and Imuled in the wagons acquired by the city to the big barge. Street Commissioner Charles Yur relmann, under whoso direction tlie col lection of garbage is to be carried on. was in charge of the work all day, seeing that the work was promptly done. The bat go was toweu by the steamer Louisiana. Besides the crew of the loulsiana, there wero on board her J. l'rcndergiist. City Veterinarian, anil Joseph O'Connor, Super intendent of the City Hauling Department, who went down to bee that the first trip was successfully made. With them were severiLl men whose duty it is to see that the tvirge springs no leak and to ward off other accidents. The steamer was immediately attached to barge No. 2. and began her return trip, reaching the foot of Chouteau aenue last night at 10 o'clock, where It will lay while being loaded until 4 o'clock this afternoon. Thu city has oiocured three largo barges, which will be used In removing the gar bage. Eucli is 1 feet ions. 30 fefct wide and C'i feet In depth, witli a capacity of 131 tons. It is tho plan of tho citi to have one of these bames at each end of the trip and one on the way constantly. One trip will bo made each day. LOADING POINTS. Tlie loading point fur the North Side district, which bealns at Franklin avenue and extends to the city limits, is at the foot of North Market street, and the load- ag point for South St. I.ouIs, which be ns at the south side of rrnnklin ae nue and extend? to tlie city limits, is at inn loot oc unnuteau avenue That the new method of disposing of the city garb.ise is much more efficient and expeditious than tho old was demonstrated yesterday when the last wagon load was emptied into the ble baree at S o'clock, two hours sooner, according to Street Commissioner Varrclinann. than they had over finished while worklnc under the But ler contract. From S o'clock in the morning until tliey flnished at S in the afternoon tho sixty nine wajrons were keot busy hauling tlie garbage. A prominent figure at the barge, while it was being loaded, was "Rags." tho mascot of the Street Cleaning Depart ment Ho was present all day barking and wagging his talo as if trying to show his approbation of tho new order of things. "Bags" is a small bull terrier. 2 years old, and has been with the Sanltarv De partment for n year. Tlie -early life nf "Hags" is clothed in mystery. Who his master was and where the little brlndle bull terrier came fiom no one knows. Even now he has no particular master, but is equally attached fo each of the drivers. Sometimes ho follows one wagon and sometimes another, and every night ho curls himself up under the one that h followed that day. 11 whs not intended by those in charge that "Bags" s-hould accompany the barge on its trip donn tho rier. but when Chesley Island was reached last night "Bags" was the first to Jump from the boat to tho Island. He made the return trip with tho boat. WHAT WILL IILTM'K DO NOWf Oprrntlon of the St. Louis Sn:iltiir Worlix s,ia. IIutc to Cense. SInco jesterday marked the beginning of the city disposing of its own garba:e and the expiration of tlie But'er emer gency contract, thero has been much lls-cus-ulon as to what will become of the St Ixmis Sanitary Company, which oper ated the St. Louis Sanitary Works. An ordinance, about night years old, prohibits the establishment of .new reduc tion warks, slaughter-houses and dihsicat Ing plants In the city limits. The question that now has arisen is. Can the imiler plant, near the Workhouse, continue in operation? Some hold that 13 the works were conducted under a special contract with the city, it forfeits right to further operation, while others snv that the plant is not new. but in operating from tlvs on would simply carry on business lu continuation. That the plant ha." been profitable to tho owners, is shown hy the fact that President of the Beard of Tub !c Im prmements Phillips estimates that the city will sae about S20OW0 a year through handling the garbage itself. ;ot only was there big money ;n the mere handling of the garbage at the price raid, but the reduction products brought a good sum. It Is said. ST. LOUIS COUNTY NOTES. Frederick Lebteig was arrested yester day on a charge of wife abandonment, preferred by Jennie iA-bli lg. She. alleges ho deserted her August 15, 1304.
