'Room Is a scarce article In some parts bf New York, and it Is proposed to make a playground on the roof of a new school lulldlng there. The space to be thus used will tie ten thousand feet and the additional cost of the structure will foe only $4,000. ' Nearly ?400,00O is the amount ob tained from the bicycle tax this year !by the French government, ,the num ber of machines declared being just under 200,000. They are well spread over the whole country, since Paris and the department of the Siene re turn 38,000, less than a fifth of the total. A ferry to transport freight trains from Peshtigo, Wisconsin, to Chicago, a distance of 240 miles, has been start ed this week. It is the most extensive undertaking of the kind ever made. The bargee will each hold twenty-eight loaded freight cars and are drawn by large tugs which can haul two or three barges over the entire distance in about a day and a half, or little more time than the freight trains would require to cover the distance on land. The Jewish Chautauqua literary and scientific circle now has branches in sixteen 'States and numbers nearly five hundred members. It has the approval of the central conference of American rabbis and the national council of Jew ish women organized at Chicago in the World's Fair times. Already there is talk of a Jewish Chautauqua summer 'assembly for the special benefit of Sabbath school teachers and -of stu dents interested to the higher Jewish learning. The estimates of the world's wheat crop put forth by the Hungarian gov ernment are regarded as reliable as any. Those now furnished for the cur rent year point to a total yield of 2, 402,670,000 ' bushels against 2,474,860,000 last year. The importing countries.ac cordlng to these figures, will produce 88,806,000 bushels less than In 1894 and the exporting countries 16,fil6,000 bush els more. Considering last year's crop a normal one as, taking the world as a whole, it was we thus find a shortage of only 72,190,000 bushels. As other es timates have pointed to a shortage of some 230,000,000 bushels, there 1b evi dently a good deal of guess work and uncertainty involved. In one of General Butler's political campaigns, says the Boston Budget, he was to speak in a hall which had a small aperture over the speaker's desk. Some of the younger and dare-devil ele ment secreted themselves in the loft from which the hole opened, and at an impressive moment in the General's speech a huge wooden spoon suspended by a cord was seen descending slowly from the ceiling. The effect upon the audience was instantaneous, and amid roars of laughter, in which even the dignified occupants of the platform could not help joining, the spoon pur sued its downward course, halting only when directly opposite the speaker's face. Mr. Butler gazed calmjy at the cause of the merriment. Then, reach ing for the trophy, he said gravely: "Hello! There's one I didn't get," and, pocketing the prize, he resumed his ad dress. Nature is finally helping California vineyardlsts. It is reported from many localities that the phylloxera, the most serious pest that has ever attacked the vines. Is dying out. The experts have ,tried every remedy to stay the progress of this pest, but without avail, and six years ago the vineyardists of the Sono ma and Napa Valleys ploughed up all their vines and replanted the ground with resistant stock. The experts be lieved that all non-resistant vines were doomed to destruction by the phyllox era. But reports have recently come to the State Inspector of Orchard Pests that a material falling off in the rav ages of the pest has been noticed for some time, Vines once affected by it are now almost free. The Inspector has begun a thorough Investigation of the pleasing phenomena. He thinks some natural enemy of the pest has appeared or that some deadly disease has attack ed the phylloxera and is exterminating It. In a talk with the secretary of the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery soci ety the other day, Slatln Pasha said that the slave trade was more rampant now than ever in the Sudan. Whenever a raid is made on any of the neighbor ing tribes the Khalifa makes all the male prisoners into soldiers for his ar my; the women and children are sold within tho province over which he rules. No external slave trade Is allowed, but a certain amount of smuggling la car ried on. There are many nearly white women held as slaves In the Sudan Gallas and others. The Khalifa's wives number nearly five hundred. Slatln Pa sha explained that when the Mahdl was dying he appointed three Khalifas, who were to succeed him in turn. The first who inherited the1 power is the present Khalifa, but though the others who were elected are still living the Khalifa is intriguing for the succession to pass over them and go to his own son. Sla tln says that the power of the Khalifa is very much on the wane, and that the latter,. like the original Mahdi, Is likely to fall a victim to his own excesses. SXIZZ OOOI COJtX WEAXBElt. Once more, and perhaps for the last time this season, we congratulate ev erybody on the continuance of good weather for corn. This has been a great month for corn. So great that it doesn't seem as if corn would need another month of. such weather. If it does we hope it will be provided. There is now no doubt that this sum mer has been specially designed for the benefit of corn, and if another month of corn weather Is needed in order to fully round out the plan, let us have it. By and by, when the 2, 500,000,000 bushels or more are all rip ened and harvested we can feel that we have: seen a glorious work, even If some of the golden product thereof is distorted Into death-dealing whiskey. Of course it is hard for some to be reconciled to the fact that this weather which is so good for corn is not good for corns. But such people must culti vate serenity, and if they cannot put their feet triumphantly on their woes they must patiently endure their woes on their xfeet, knowing that While they are suffering corn is rejoicing and wav ing Annie dear. a famous ricTOitr. t It has been, asserted that Senator Quay Is a great man. There may be room for argument concerning the truth of this assertion, but there Is no room for argument concerning the truth of the assertion that he is a good politi cian and "a slick article." There were not two conventions at Harrisburg yes terday. There- was no riot. The extra policemen on duty earned their money as easily as the regular policemen did. There was but one convention and Quay was its prophet, priest and king. He waved a magic wand or something late Tuesday night and when the convention met yesterday it met to do his will and make him chairman of the State committee. Everybody was happy, or put on the appearance of happiness. Quay and the governor smilingly con sulted together, Quay moved the unani mous nomination; of the governor's appointees tov judges of the Superior court and Mr. Gilkeson, the chairman of the State eommittee.moved the unan imous election of Senator Matthew Stanley Quay to the place of chairman. Wild applause and unanimous election. In the caucus Tuesday night when it was made plain that Quay had a ma jority he soberly said to his faithful followers: "You have fought a great battle, and you have fought it bravely and won, it fairly. It was a contest In the interest of good government and purity In Republican politics." It was certainly a famous victory. A GREAT CUAXOE. Who can tell what a year will bring forth? A year ago the liquor dealers of New York city appeared to be the pow er behind the throne and occasionally they appeared to be the power on the throne. They paid little or no attention to the law concerning the sale of in toxicating liquor on Sunday. They de fied the Roman Catholic Church when it declared itself in favor of temperance and regard for law. And they display ed such power and such resources as to almost discourage many who saw in them an apparently insuperable ob stacle to good government, or, indeed, any government that they did not "stand in with." But there has been a most remarkable change. The reform police board has enforced the law against selling liquor on Sunday. And lo and behold, it is seen that the liquor dealers of New York city are not really the government of the city. It has be come too hot for them. Yesterday, pur suant to a resolution adopted at the meeting of the Wine, Liquor and Beer Dealers' association, four members of the excise committee of that body, Hen ry Hirsch, Morris Tekulsky, James Holmes and Bernard Courtney, appear ed in the Court of Special Sessions. Frederick B. House, counsel to the as sociation, addressed the court and told of the action of the Central Associa tion In resolving to obey the Sunday- closing law. "This action was taken In good faith," said Mr. House, "and here after the saloons of members of the as sociation will be closed in accordance with the law as It now stands. This will be done, notwithstanding the fact that the members of the association, and a majority of the association, I am sure, consider the law oppressive. All we ask Is that the law shall be strict ly enforced In the case of offenders who are not members of the association." Thus passeth another glory. The Bridgeport liquor dealers were not tam er on a recent interesting occasion than are now their once great and powerful brethren of New York city. The pres ident of the New York association de clares that the liquor dealers must place themselves "In the category of citizens who respect the law, be it what It may, must comply with the law at present and assume their places In the commu nlty as law-abiding citizens," and de vote their energies to securing the en actment of more liberal laws. This Is sensible talk, and very different from the talk that went on a year ago among the leaders of the New York liquor deal ers. EASIllOX XOTES. Two Grades of Garments With the Same Fault. The new silk petticoats for the com ing season rival even those of last year for elegance and elaborateness. Most of them are set with detachable ruffles that may be sent to the cleaners with out the body of the skirt. This re duces the expense somewhat, and In sures proper care to the lace, ribbon and frills of the ruffle, but even so the heart of the average women sinks. Petticoats of percoline have the gleam and rustle of silk and more stiffness, besides they cost much less. To be sure, they are not as satisfactory after going to the washtub as before, but, on the other hapd, silk petticoats are even worse In this respect. In the newest dresses of mohair, sum- mer's white has given way to delicate tints of gray. The latter shade Is bet ter in a way, because white Is popular with every summer, white gray has just enough distinctness to mark a dress as brand new. To-day's picture presents one of these jaunty gray mo hairs, the full skirt being ornamented only with lines of stitching, which also appears at the edges of the jacket and at the wrists. The jacket opens over a vest of white linen trimmed with lace to imitate a yoke and centre pleat, and on either side of it are three loops of mohair held down by large sliver buttons. The mohair stock collar has a rolling top of black moire, and the same moire is used for the belt. Women who have all the money that they can possibly spend have their handkerchiefs woven for them of cob web batiste, linen or lawn, but those who must practice economy can buy these days for a few cents piece hem stitched handkerchiefs that are dainty enough to use, and not too good to put Into the average laundry. Yet even women who fly only moderately high Insist such handkerchiefs are not to be carried when one desires to be "dressed up," but that only the most delicate and filmy lawn is the right thing, with positively no embroidery or cplor. It is admissible to carry a handkerchief with hem so narrow It doesn't show, and with the entire centre strewn with dresden buds In soft colors and strict ly hand embroidered. But white Is preferable even to these, though not so pretty. FLORETTB. HEARD. , Mistress Mary, didn't you hear the doorbell ring? Mary Yes'm; but I didn't hear you answer it, mum. Rox bury Gazette.

It was the old timer who was talk ing, and those who knew his way of introducing a subject drew their chairs a little closer. "Irwin, along with a dozen other towns I might namfe, Is an abandoned town. If one could only dig up all the history connected with the life of the camps when they were centers of bustle and activity, some mighty interesting stories could be found. I fancy that one New Yorker would swear long and earnestly It one were to suggest to him to relate his experiences in the town of Irwin. He lost about $250,000 In that camp, be sides the money a scapegrace of a son made away with while living there. It was early In the spring of 1879 that the Gunnison excitement waged at its worst. Thousands of men climbed ov er the snowy summits, and broke trails through the passes to get Into the Gunnison country, and money was ready for Investment in almost any scheme. High up in Isolated districts prospectors discovered silver and gold leads, and with every discovery a town was formed. If a camp was so for tunate as to make two discoveries of pay dirt It blossomed forthwith into a city of some pretensions. Such a town was Irwin, which at one time boasted of 3,000 residents, besides a tributary population scattered all over the mountains prospecting for wealth In the rocks, "To-day there are four families left In the place, and but one mine Is pro ducing ore. Down below the town about a half mile are the ruins of a great mill. Great excavations were made in the mountain side, stone was quarried, shaped and hauled to the spot, and foundations that might last for ages were laid for the superstruc ure of a great ore reduction plant. Ex pensive machinery was drawn from Sallda over Marshall Pass and up the steep trail by team5k and after It was all set up ready for work It was dis covered that the mill could make flour as successfully "as It could extract the silver from the bres of thafcamp. The son of the man who furnished the mon ey had been sent out to superintend the work, and he spent .the old man's cash with a lavish hand. He went a fast pace, for Irwin was a fast city In those days. Other parties bought the mill for a song' took what machinery was available and carted It off to oth er camps, leaving the remainder to rust away in the midst of the ruin's. "The mill was located near the town of Ruby, which later succumbed before the more rapid growth of Irwin, higher up In the gulch. Town lots in Irwin sold as high as $3,000; a dozen hotels were erected; a bank was established, business houses of considerable preten sions were put up, and many neatly constructed frame cottages ornament ed the residence district. A church with a tall steeple was placed on an eminence back of the main business street, and a school-house was set up across the wide gulch opposite the church. An enterprising citizen ap peared before the town council in those bustling days and secured a franchise to place in the city a system of water works. He secured a contract to fur nish the town with water for fire pro tection at $150 a month, and laid mains and set fire hydrants at every corner. The fire department of Irwin became noted for Its prowess, and at several annual tournaments captured valuable prizes. "Stages and freighters' trains con veyed the passengers from Sallda, the terminus of the Denver and Rio Grande road, across the pass and up the trails to Irwin, and all the com forts of civilized living were to be had In the town. But the camp lasted on ly a few years. Several mines, it Is true, were developed, and considerable ore was produced, but the prospectors at last deserted the field for more se ductive fields and the city of Irwin gradually ceased to officially exist. Che mayor of Irwin was about the last to go. When every saloon, variety thea tre and business house had disappear ed; when the postmaster had died and the government had discontinued the office; after the mines had closed down and the shaft house had begun to show Blgns of decay, the mayor one evening returned to hl3 bachelor quar ters over the only remaining hotel of fice which really was no more than a boarding house for the few miners who worked in the Mountain Gera mine and in the morning he was found dead In his bed. "It Is an odd 6ight to walk along the streets of Irwin over well-preserved plank sidewalks and observe the signs of a once prosperous community. A sign, 'Bank of Irwin,' still creaks in the wind; other signs Indicate that about every line of trade was once represented; 6tUl others show that the town was deemed worthy of attention by advertisers of patent nostrums. The water still flows through themains and fire hydrants, free to all comers. All supplies 'for the families now residing there are brought frpm Crested Butte, which has since the founding of Irwin become a lively coal mining camp, fur nishing anthracite coal and coke, be sides soft coaL . "Then there is the town of Gothic, over the mountains from Irwin, which REPORT OF THE ACADEMIE Uollindris " THE QUEEN OF TABLE WATERS." THE RESULTS OF THE RECENT INVESTIGATIONS IN PARIS, AND THE RE FORT OF THE ACAD&MIE DE MEDECINE OF FRANCE HAVE PLACED APOLLINARIS WATER AT THE HEAD OF ALL THE WATERS EXAMINED FOR PURITY AND FREEDOM FROM DISEASE GERMS. was once a center for prospectors about Gothic mountain. I believe that only one family now resides within Its cor porate limits. Occasionally dn sum mer a prospector or miner goes up the old trail to the camp to do a little as sessment work or look after a patented claim which the owner hopes may some day become valuable, but It will be many a year before the town of Gothic gets a postofflce or shows any symp toms of life. I presume In the two towns I have mentioned over $3,000,000 changed hands during the few years of excitement. "Blllerton, over towardt the Contlnr ental divide, near where tlie South park crosses through Alpine pass, was an other great center In those days. We used to hear of the murders there nearly every week. It was a stage station first for the crowds who were racing Into the Gunnison country and afterwards a shipping point for mines up In. the Tin Cup district. Blllerton had a newspaper, two smelters, vari ety theatres and business houses for outfitting prospectors and tourists. The Tin Cup district was so named because of the rumor that a miner had washed out $100 in gold with a tin drinking cup. Following that idea the mines were named Gold Cup, Silver Cup, Copper Cup, Little Gold Cup, Iron Cup, Stirrup Cup and every other kind of pup. Bll lerton had once a great Fourth of July celebratloa with fireworks shipped from Chicago. To-day you would have hard Work finding even the remains of the town. "Once the Mary Murphy mine, near Hortense, on the eastern side of the pass, was famous all over the state for Its rich output Pat Murphy of St. Louis was the owner, and for several years he was a great gun in that part of the country. He shipped his ore to the east, and was said to have obtained fabulous returns. Some hot springs were discovered near Hortense which were believed to be of great medicinal value. An enterprising Yankee built near the springs a magnificent hotel supplied with all the modern Improve ments and capable of accommodating a hundred guests. He thought that as a summer resort and sanitarium that place would eclipse all others. I guess the bears and wildcats are the only living creatures that ever see the hotel now. I .don't believe a human being has set eyes on it for years." PREPARED FOR DEATH. Bought Widow's Weed For His Wife and Bnrial Clothes for Himself. From tho St. Louis-Globe Democrat. 1 A remarkable case of premonition of death was that of Frank G., a St. Louis business man, who was taken sick the early part of June, and whose case was so serious that his family had abandoned all hope of his recovery, and even the physician in charge had lost faith in the virtues of his medi cines, i Suddenly the patient rallied, took on a new lease of life, grew strong and vigorous, and the supposedly dying man soon returned to business. The first thing that G. did on enter ing his office after his recovery was to order the books balanced, paying all outstanding claims. Then, with a sigh of relief, he said, "That's finished." Next he proceeded to a dry goods; store, where he purchased a complete mourn ing outfit for his wife, soon to be a wid ow. Then hastening to a clothiers, he purchased a suit of broadcloth for him self, in which to be laid out. Ever considerate, his predominating trait controlled him to the last, and his next visit was to the grocer's where he ordered a supply of provisions of all kinds, sufficient for a month, and then, his task being ended, he turned his steps homeward. Poor G. seemed to be moving and acting as in a dream, his faculties, rather his sensibilities, were stunned, and his purchases were made as though for another, and that other a stranger in whom he had no Interest save one of business. When G. reached his house and mounted the steps, before he could use the latch key the door was flung open and his white-faced wife met him with the startled exclamation "My God! Frank, what does this mean?" holding in her arms her widow's weeds, which had been delivered before he reached home. Putting his arms lovingly OV0ER Absolutely Pure A cream of tartar baking powder.
