QUICK RETURN. Money Invested In Gas Plant Proves a Winner. B. G. Dawes of Akron, the young street railway magnate and owner of gas plants, is at the Astoria. Mr. Dawes, with other well-known west ern capitalists, has recently come in to possession of a big gas plant at Little Rock, Ark. Scarcely had they got possession than a representative of a great trust institution in New York offered them a 25,per cent ad vance on the purchase price. This offer it was that brought Mr. Dawes Bast. Notwithstanding the possibility of a quick and flattering turn of the capital invested it is quite likely there will be no sale.

At the last meeting of the vestry of St. Paul's Episcopal church the matter of the erection of a new church received attention. It is proposed to build a stone edi fice an the lot, surrounded by Mar ket, Fir and Forge streets. It will be one of the same style of architec ture as the present chapel. The church will be considerably larger. It will face on Fir street, with en trances on both Market and Fir. The estimated cost, including a fine new pipe organ is $30,000. Many members of the church have expressed a willingness to donate liberally for the new edifice and it is believed that all the money needed for the purpose can be raised with out trouble. A lady, who is an at tendant of the church, has $2,000 which she will turn over to the Vestry at any time for the erectiqn of the church. Definite action will probably be taken at the next meet ing of the Vestry. DEATHS.

This is-truly an age of evolution and never in any previous period of the world's history have such unex plainable phenomena been produced touching material things as at pres ent. Scientific men are bewildered and remain silent when confronted with the wonders and what Feem the miracles of these latter days. The public of Akron will now have an opportunity to witness with its own eyes and judge with its own un derstanding as to these things. On Wednesday and Thursday nights the Boy Phenomenon, the great magnetic healer will give pub lic demonstrations of his ability to heal the sick at the Grand Opera House, where he will demonstrate his" abilit to cure the most stubborn chronic diseases by the "laying on of the hands." The press of the entire country teems with laudatory articles on his marvelous work. The Boy Phenome non has been before the public of Philadelphia for many months and wherever he has given, demonstra tions of his skill all bear witness of his honesty and power. A short lecture will precede each demonstration which willfully delin eate the wonderful power of animal magnetism in the healing of the sick. Those on crutches or canes, the rheumatic, paralyzed, deaf and lame are invited to be present and be treated absolutely free, but should comeearly that front beats may be given them. A Wheelman's Views. Editor Democrat : I notice by the papers that when the ordinance in regard to street sprinkling was presented at the Council meeting Councilman Brady made the remark that "The Czar of Russia would not impose such re strictions on the people as this ordi nance.'r Mr. Brady forgets that this country is further advanced in civili zation than Russia. I am surprised that he shows such ignorance of our laws and would like to call his atten tion to the act passed at Columbus in 1898 calling for a dry strip on all paved streets in cities of the first class and a fine of $5 for anyone fail ing to leave the dry- strips. Mr. Brady must have met some scorcher, for I am sorry to 'say there are a few left, but there is law for such, and he should not blame all the rest of the wheelmen. - Any rider knows the danger of wet pavements, especially the way the water is slopped in Akron. Wonder if Mr. Brady won't find out that there are a few wheelmen in the city if he ever comes up for office? E. S. Kixtz. Fought It Out.

There is a certain Chicago bride who recently decided that her husband was an unfeeling brute and went home to mother for a peculiar and nnnsnal rea son. The mother was awakened just be fore dawn one morning last week by a sound of sobbing and weeping outside her own sleeping room door. Her hor ror and astonishment at discovering her only daughter in the depths of apparent desolation and despair can well be im agined. "Charlie was crn-u-u-el to me," wailed the bride of a month or there abouts mournfully, "and so I came home." "But what did Charlie do the wretch!" inquired the mother, ready to blame the husband on general prin ciples. To this qnestion, however, the bride retnrned no answer save bitter weeping. Then the mother, feeling that the case was beyond her, administered a nerve restorative and awoke the bride's father. "Now, my child," began this indi vidual, speaking with the authority of one who had settled all her difficulties from the time she could walk, "tell me immediately what that wretch of a bnsband of yours has done and he shall suffer for it whatever it is." The bride's ardor cooled perceptibly. Her voice was almost steady as she be gan her story. "Well." she commenced bitterly, her eyes flashing at the remembrance of her wrongs, "Charlie was out very late last night, and I thought I'd get up and and say something to him when he came home. I had thought that so long as Charlie was gcing to be so late home I'd I'd fix up my com plexion a little. So, when Charlie got into bed in the spare room, I just for got everything bnt him and went in there. And and" bitter sobbing again "I forgot all about the beauty mask I had on and went right in with it upon me. And" a perfect paroxysm of tears half drowned her words at this point "Charlie mnst have thought I was a ghost, and he threw a pillow at me." Chicago Inter Ocean. FIGURES WITH FINGERS. Origin of the Roman Numeral Meth od of Conntinjr. Hold your hands up before you, palms outward, thumbs at an acute angle. Be gin on the left. Little finger I; little finger and ring finger II; little finger, ring finger and middle finger III; all the fingers of the left hand IIII; and the hand and thumb at an acnte angle form V. In place of the IIII you may use the fourth finger from the left, still holding the thumb at an acute angle, and you have IV. Now pass to the right band. Holding the thumb and the hand at the same angle as before we have VI; by using the index and the middle finger we get VII, while the thumb and the three large fingers make VIII. Now join the two V's made by the thumbs, inverting one, and we have X, or 10. Then use the Xwith the last lit tle finger before it and it will give IX. The combinations following X are ob vious. The forefinger of the left hand, with the thumb at right angles, make a perfect L; the little finger of the left hand curved toward the thumb makes C, the initial of centum (100), and so on with the hundreds. Now join the two thumbs with the forefingers, or two V's inverted, and you have the hieroglyphics complete. Philadelphia Times llli Hair Turned Black. There have been ssveral instances of a man's hair turning from white to black. One of the most notable perhaps was that of 8n engineer in the fire de partment of Louisville. His age was 05, and he was on duty dnring a tre mendous fire for 15 consecutive hours. The spray was constantly flying from the hose, and he became, in consequence of the lowness of temperature of the atmosphere, covered from head to foot with ice. He wore a Ekullcap and a helmet on the top of that, so that his head was the warmest part of his body and not at all exposed, though his eye brows and whiskers became wet and were frozen stiff. The afternoon after the exposure his hair, which had be come gray eight years before and had for three years been white, turned per fectly black. Louisville Post. A WJlllns Slave. "A pretty saying of an army officer is reported by an exchange. He married in 18G5 the daughter of a man whose whole heart was in the cause of the southern negroes. The marriage has been a very happy one. "Were yon so much interested in the slavery question when I knew yen?" asked a college friend, who had not seen the officer for 30 years. "Yes, but I didn't talk much about it," was the reply. "Bnt after I met my wife's father I became a strong abolitionist, and very soon after I met her 1 became a slavel" Detroit Free Press.
