Wednesday, April 6, 1898. War news. THE SITUATION INCREASING IN INTEREST. LEE LEAVES HAVANA. The Message Goes to Congress Today. War or Peace Decided On Probably by Noon. In another column we have given a review of the war situation, in connec tion with which startling changes, one way or the other, are looked for today. The latest bulletins are to the effect that the President's message will go to Congress this noon and will recommend intervention, but will not be a decisive declaration of independence' for Cuba. Our bulletin says Gen. Lee and consu lar officers are preparing to leave Ha vana. Dispatches are conflicting, and, in spite of the indications that have been in the air for three or four days, further postponement of definite action may be decided upon. President McKinley is evidently anx ious for peace ii it can be secured with out reflection on our national honor. ; i 1,, , - Congressman Qrout who introduced the Cuban recognition resolution in the House on Monday. The Reece Company. The Reece Button-Hole Company ex plain in their annual circular to the stockholders the cause of their reduced income. They say that the button shoes have been so largely replaced by laced shoes that many of their machines are idle. But they nave partially met this loss by making a new machine to make eyelet-holes for lace shoes. In closing tbeysay: "Notwithstanding that the last year's net gain enabled us to pay dividends amounting to $170,000, we consider as a matter ot business prudence, and as the earnings of the different quarters vary, to make the basis ot the dividend three per cent quarterly, and declare extra dividends as often as the earnings will permit. We have paid in dividends to date $1,502,500. We see no reason why we cannot control the button-hole trade for many years. Fast Day Party. The Orchestral Club of nine pieces, J D.

Julian Hawthorne told ns onee that Concord ate more aoreage of pies in pro portion to its number of inhabitants than any town in New England, and he added, though not in a boastful way, that he himself had consumed 14 in a single sitting. The elder Hawthorne was devoted to pie, and a cupboard at the Hawthorne honse in Oonoord was built for the sole purpose of containing this delightful and stimulating brain food. Thorean was very fond of pie, and sd was Alcott, and we have heard that Magaret Fuller would take a pieoe of the softest variety of custard in her dainty fingers and eat it with the ut most grace without smearing her mouth or showing evidence of the extreme haz ard of the feat. Whittier very often ate pie with a knife, althongh we believe that this habit, common in Amesbury, was never extensively commended at Oonoord. R. M. Field in Ghioago Post DANVILLE. Deacon Morrill's House Burned. The fine residence of Deacon Charles L. ' Morrill on the road to North Danville was entirely consumed by fire Monday afternoon. The fire was discovered about .30 near the chimney and all efforts to put it out were ynavailing. Some of the household effects were saved, but a large part, including many articles of especial value for their age, were con sumed. The insurance was small, $1950 in the Vermont Mutual, which will cover only a small portion of the loss. 1 ne barns situated a short distance from the- house were saved. Both Mr. and Mrs. Morrill have been in poor health this winter and they have a host of friends who will regret to learn of their great misfortune. Accident to the Hyde Park Train.
