It is seldom that an Italian gin mar ries without the consent of her par ents, guardians or nearest relatives. but once in awhile such things do oc cur. Perhaps no people are more de voted or sacrifice themselves more for their children than do the Italians, and It is this devotion that wins from th children such perfect obedience, says the Chautauqua Magazine. Still there are instances where the children give their hearts without the parental sanction. In such'cases it is difficult to get a priest to marry them, as he gen erally takes the part of the parents. Borne few content themselves with the civil marriage, but others are not sat isfied without the priest's bless'ng on their union. There is an instance in Manzoni's "l'romessi Sposi" where a priest. through intimidation, refused to mar ry a couple, and not long ago there ap peared in a Neapolitan journal an in stance in real life where a priest re fused to marry a couple because they were second cousins. In the case of this couple a dispensation from the church was necessary and this would cost 35 lire, seven dollars. Seven dol lars to some of the poor peasants earn. Ing five cents a day is an independent toriune tney can never hope to attain. This couple saved for a long time, and gathered together what they could but a sum far short of the necessary amount and took it to the priest and begged him to give them a dispensa tion for it. He refused. One day as he was celebrating mas the couple, Y.no were present, called out in turn: "This is my wife.. This is my hus band!" The priest was besMe"Eimself with rage, and shouted: "It is a lie, it is a lie!" ' ' But it was true, nevertheless, for, ac cording to an old Italian law, to de clare themselves husband and wife in the presence of a priest was to make a alid marriage. So this couple was legally married. Hamas Faenlty. "I specks," said Uncle Eben, "da de gif o' prophecy wouldn do uj much good if we had it.

TO START BRIQUETTE WORKS, i Machinery Being- Bought In Germany for Manufacture of the Deposits of blsnite In North Dakota. William De Labarre, director of the Washburn-Pillsbury mills, Minneap olis, is in Magdeburg, Germany, buy ing machinery for the briquette works that W. D. Washburn intends to build at Bismarck, N.D. Briquettes, which are fuel made from lignite, are widely used in Germany. It is esti mated that 55,000 square miles of lig nite underly the Dakotas and Mon tana, while another wide belt ex tends through the gulf states from Florida to Texas. German geologists have long believed that the Amer ican cities would solve the smokeless fuel question by the use of briqui-ttes. President Francis, of the St. Lcuis exposition, during his short stay here, accumulated papers and other information on the subject with the view to the introduction of briquettes at St. Louis. He took with him sev eral sample briquettes made from Dakota lignite sent to the German works by Mr. Washburn. BRITISH ARMY AND WAVY. Estimates for the Next Year's Ex. - nenaea Placed at the Enormous Sum of 60,000,000 Ponnda. Mr. Brodrick wants ' 34,500,000 sterling for the army next year. Lord Selborne requires the same amount for the navy. The army estimates, says the New York Tribune's London representative, have never been ap proached except in time of war, and navy estimates, which exceed the cur rent year's figures by 3,500,000 ster ling, have broken all records. John Bright once said that a government which could not rule the United King- oom on 70,oo,uoo sterling a year should be turned out of office. The army and navy alone will cost almost this sum for the ensuing 12 months. ana tne total national expenditure will reach 130,000,000 sterling. The outlook for the British taxpayer is gloomier than ever. Germany and Veaeanela. Germany s trade with Venezuela is trifling in amount. The statistics for Ave years shpw that but one-fifth of one per cent, of Venezuela's exports were to Germany and bnt one-tenth of one per cent, of her imports came from that country.
