Not infrequently a young woman finds it necessary to launder a shirt waist at home for some emergency when the laundryman or the home ser vant cannot do it. Hence these direc tions for ironing the waist: To iron Bummer shirt waists so that they will look like new it is needful to have them starched evenly with Defiance starch, then made perfectly smooth and rolled tight in a damp cloth, to be laid away two or three hours. When Ironing have a bowl of water aad a clean piece of muslin beside the iron ing board. Have your iron hot, but not sufficiently so to scorch, and abso lutely clean. Begin by ironing the back, then the front, sides and the sleeves, followed by the neckband and the cuffs. When wrinkles appear ap ply the damp cloth and remove them. Always iron frcm the top of the waist to the bottom. If there are plaits in the f:"ont iron them downward, after first raising each cne with a blunt knife, and with the edge of the iron follow every line of stitching to give it distinctness. After the shirt waist is ironed it should be well aired by the fire or in the sun before it is folded and put away, fays the Philadelphia Inquirer. A woman with a fine presence may also be a woman with a past. DR. J. C. BROWN, PmcUcUmltedto Wichita. Kans. Eye, Ear, Noe & Throat.

OMAHA, NEB. fcaat At Patterson, N. J., The Hot Bed Of Anarchy. MANY PERSONS ARE INJURED. Patterson, X. J., June 20. The city is in the hands of a mob. A number of persons have been shot and two will die. The police were for awhile pow erless. Mills were wrecked with stones and bullets by the striking silk dyers, helpers or roughs acting for them, and there were threats to resort to the torch, but so far the mayor hesitates about asking Governor Murphy for troops. There seems to be every indi cation that the riot was the result of a pre-arranged plan to involve the would-be peaceful element in the affair from the start. Well known agents of anarchists have all been fanning the flames. McQueen, an Englishman, took control of a meeting of the silk workers, with Galleano, an Italian, who worked his countrymen into a frenzy. McQueen called for a vote on calling a general strike of all branches of the silk trade. All voted in favor. Five minutes later Galleano emerged from the group shouting something in Italian. Instantly a mob had formed about him. Into it rushed the Italians and then the other foreigners, and a moment later the mob, led by Gal leano, swept down Belmont avenue. A quarter of a mile down Belmont avenue stands the Columbia mill, a silk ribbon factory. The doors had been locked when the mob appeared, but they were forced open and with the crash of the doors came a volley of stones, which riddled the windows in the front of the building. The mob continued the same course at other mills, taking them all unpre pared for defense and leaving them with broken doors and windows and driving out the workers. Much pistol firing at the various points of attack, several policemen being hiL Several working women were struck by stones. and otherwise beaten by the mob. At one mill, spectators say, 100 shots were fired. It was about this time that Mayor Hinchcliff called for aid. Men were detailed from each camp and arrived and dnring the afternoon ren dered efficient help. The firing seemed to scatter the rioters but it was not long before a dense mob had formed a Cain. At the close of the day the anar chists, who seemed to be in command, were openly threatening that a police man's life would pay for each wounded rioter. Towns Threatened ITitb Fire. Tacoma, Wash., June 23. The fire department of this city has sent men, engines and hose on a special train to Buckley, in this county, which is threatened with complete destruction by forest fires, which are raging in King county. Enumclaw, another town in King county, is threatened with destruction by forest fires. ' The whole populace is fighting the flames, but the waterworks has been burned and the work of protecting the town is very difficult. The wind is blowing a gale and much farm property has al ready been destroyed. Graduates aa Apprentices. Topeka, June 23. A number of spec ial apprentices are to enter the shops of the Santa Fe and take a course of training in actual work which will entitle them to be designated as full fledged machinists. All of the young men are graduates of educational in stitutions and about half of the num ber are formerly of Kansas university. These apprentices will take a three years course in the shops.

Ritchey, re-elected, Manitoba; supreme medical examiner, Dr. D. H. Shields, re-elected, Mis souri. All Silk Mill Closed. New York, June 21. All but three of the silk mills in Hudson county, N. J., have closed down. About ten thousand hands arc in consequence out of employment, and within the next twenty-four hours the number will likely reach 13,000. The immediate cause of the shutting down of the mills was the Dyer's strike riot in Patterson. The majority of the proprietors of the silk manufacturing establishments in Hudson county decided to close down indefinitely. Confereuoe of Senators. Washington, June 23. The republi can senators held another conference on the subject of Cuban reciprocity. Tho speakers in support of the rec iprocity bill were made by Senators Foraker, Beveridge, Lodge, Hale, Aid rich, McComas and Ilanna, Senator Piatt of Connecticut adding a few words to what he had said at the Wed nesday evening meeting.

The Rock Island has secured from the govern ment the right to consti net a line west from Enid, through the military reser vation of Fort Supply in Western Oklahoma.

Commissioner Yerkes of the internal revenue bureau has settled the contested question as to whether butter or any other ingre dients artificially colored may be used in the manufacture of oleomargarine without increasing the tax from one quarter of a cent to ten cents a pound by issuing a regulation which holds in effect that no artificial coloring matter whatever can be used in any way in the manufacture of oleomargarine without increasing the tax as abated. WILL STARVE OUT ANARCHISTS 230,000 Pledged to Supyort tho Tigr is ace Committee's Acts. Paterson, N. J., June 23, Mayor Hmchcliffe seems to be in complete control of the situation here, backed as he is by the entire peace controlling force of the city and country and goodly portion of the state militia. The soldie-s' presence has had a de terrent effect upon the "reds,, and they are not in evidence in the city. The troops will remain on dnty at night and will be relieved by deputies in the morning. No troops will do duty in the day time unless there should be serious trouble. An organization has been completed, composed of 50 wealthy business men of this city, to be known to the public as the Paterson vigilance committee. Private detectives have alaeady been engaged to shadow the leading anar chists. The "reds" are to be induced to leave Paterson quietly if possible. If they do not go the committe is to have its own plan for action. One of the methods to be employed is said to be the keeping of a black list, and no matter where in Paterson a man on it obtains work his employer will be notified to dismiss him. If this plan is carried out it will starve out of this city all anarchists who may come here. It is said the committee has 8250,000 pledged by the men composing it to carry out its pur pose. White Bouse Torn Op. Washington, June 23. The work of demolishing the interior of the White House has progressed so rapidly that the president finds himself cramped for space, rendering it difficult to transact the business of his office. Owing to this condition of affairs, he determined that hereafter he would be unable to receive any callers, except senators and members, government officials and those only having the most urgent business. Grnbb Appeals to Supreme Court. Topeka, June 23. William Grubb, the Harper county man who said he was glad Czolgosz shot McKinley, has appealed his damage suit to the su preme court.

Topeka, June 23. Fred Wellhouse, the largest apple grower in Kansas, gave it as his opinion that Kansas would raise one of the largest apple crops in its history. The trees are not as full of fruit as they have been in other years, he says, but the size and excellence of quality will make up for quantity. The condition of the fruit now is excellent and a prolonged drouth or a hail storm would be about the only thing which would interfere with a crop. Sixth Week of Strike. Wilkesbarre, Pa., June 18. Tht sixtl week of the anthracite coal miners' strike began without a rip ple to disturb the calmness of the situation. The rain fell heavily nearly all day, which helped to keep the more than 150,000 idle men and boys indoors. Several reports of assaults on working men and coal and iron policemen were received here from different sections of the region, but no one was seriously injured. The report that the fire bosses had gone out is not fully confirmed. Another Illinois Tornado. Elgin, 111., June 18.

Jane, of Algonqnin, was buried nnder the ruins of a barn. Charles Splller was cut in the breast by flying par ticles of glass. RELY UPON HOflL FAMINE. A Weak Hope That Some Miners Will Keep Contracts. SUPPLY FOR THREE MONTHS. Indianapolis, June 23. It is esti mated by W. B. Wilson, secretary and treasurer of the United Mine Workers of America, that the present supply of bituminous and anthracite, coal above ground would be exhausted in less than three months if there should be a general suspension of work in the mines. According to this estimate, if the na tional convention of mine workers in Indianapolis, July 17, should vote for a general suspension of work in sup port of the anthracite strike, as is now proposed, the vast industrial machinery of the United States would be handi capped for fuel, so that thousands of factories would have to suspend work. Mr. Wilson has statistics showing there are approximately 450,000 miners in the country, scattered through thirty states. The miners of twenty four states would be actively involved if there should be a suspension of oper ations. There are now over 300,000, or two-thirds of the miners in the country organized. Probably the largest supply of coal is in the bins at Buffalo, and other cities along the great lakes. Canada has no coal on which this country could draw if there should be a general tie-up. The British Isles might supply a part of the market, but at a price that would be almost pro hibitive to the manufacturers and ordinary consumers. The tariff on imported coal is 60 cents a ton more than the miners receive, as a rule, for mining in the United States. At the coming convention the belief is that the competitive district west ern Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio and Illinois will take a hand against a general strike. These states have contracts that they do not want to break. The combined vote of the com petitive district with that of Iowa is expected to prove strong enough to prevent the success of the proposition for a general strike. There are a number of states whose agreements expire July 1, and it will depend largely on the outcome of the deliberations between the operators and miners as to where the balance of power will lie in the convention. Confirmations Blocked. Washington, June IS. The consider ation of the nomination of General Crozier to be chief of ordnance was objected to by Senator Hoar while the senate was in executive session. The nomination stands at the head of the executive calendar and Senator War ren told the senate that hereafter he i would insist on the calendar being taken in its order. Therefore co other confirmations were made. Kansan Appointed to Liberia. Washington, June 19. The presi dent has decided to appoint George W. Ellis, a negro of Lawrence, Kans., sec retary of the legation at Monrovia, Liberia. The position pays 81,500 a year. Ellis, until recently, held a clerkship at the census bureau.

Four American teachers living in Cebu, Island of Cebu, went out for a day's outing June 10 and have not yet returned. Three detachments of native constabulary are searching for the missing Americans and have received orders not to return without them. Creede's Second Great Fire. Creede, Colo., June 20. The second torrible fire in the history of Creede has resulted in the burning of 8200,000 worth of property. Two lives are be lieved to have been lost and many per sons were injured. The fire occurred in what is known as Upper Creede, and that part of the town is in ruins. The names of the missing are William Stewart and Fritr. Zint. The fire start ed in a vacant building formerly occu pied as a saloon, and is supposed to have been of incendiary origin. Destructive Gasoline. Guthrie, Okla., June 21. Thirty-one persons were injured by a gasoline generator explosion in a hardware store. A fire broke out demanding the attention of two fire companies. Au immense crowd gathered in the street before the plate glass front of the building. The fire ignited gasoline, which exploded, blowing out the front of the store into the crowd. Heavy plate glass went into the air, making serious wounds wherever it struck person's in falling. Rnsh Orders For Men. Topeka, June 23. The state employ ment agency is unable to fill rush orders for harvesters. All who apply are hired but the agency cannot supply a tenth of the places that are asking for help. Heavy rains in the wheat country delayed the harvest. The farmers are taking advantage of this brief respite' and are making strenuous efforts to secure more help. The ex tent of the crop and the number of helpers needed were both underestima ted and now men are not to be found. This Will be Denied. London, June 19. A sensational story is current in London of the dis covery of a plot to assassinate King Edward. This story has created much discussion in newspaper and other circles, but it is lacking in anything like official confirmation. According to the report, King Edward's sudden illness at Aldershot was not due to a cold, bnt was merely an excuse for withdrawing his majesty from public functions, owing to the discovery by Scotland Yard of a plot against his life. Mo Change la Coal Strike. Wilkesbarre, Pa., June 17. The fifth week of the anthracite coal miners' strike is passed. Neither side has weak ened an inch and each side stands just as firmly as it did thirty-five days ago. As the days go by it becomes more ap parent that it is a case of the "survival of the fittest." Neither the miner nor the operator has anything further to propose, and if a solution of the dis pute is to come it looks very much as though it will have to come from a ' third party. .
