Cripple Creek , Colo., Nov. 24.— The coroner's inquest into the case of the two men killed by the explosion in the Vindicator mine was begun today. The evidence produced demonstrated conclusively that the explosion was the result of a plot to blow up the mine, but nothing of a definite character de veloped to indicate the guilty persons. Articles found at the scene of the ex plosion were put iu evidence. They consisted of a part of a stick of giant powder of a different make from that used in the mine, a pair of wire clip pers of a pattern not used by the Vin dicator miners, some electric wire and fragments of a Colt's 32-caliber re volver. This afternoon Adjutant Geüeral Sherman Bell, who is in Denver, stated that infernal machines ready to be exploded had been fourni in two other mines and that there was posi tive evidence that the plot included five mines in all. He expressed the opinion that the explosion in the Vin dicator miue occurred before the per petrators inLended, as most of the troops were on outgoiujf trains, but had not started when it occurred. Cotton .Mills Ueducc Wages. BOSTON, Nov. 24.—The first reduc tion in wages announced in the cotton mills of southern Xew Eûgland aud at a half a dozen points outside of that territory, went into effect in all but one river corporation today and at a number of outside mills. Al though about 32,000 operatives had their pay cut down, no general strike occurred in any mill. Today's cut averages ten per cent, and places the pay schedule on a basis with those paid previous to the advance of March, 1902. A Timely Mu^gestiuii. lhi; is the season of the year when the prudent and careful housewife re plenishes her supply of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It is certain to be needed before the winter is over, and results are much more prompt and j satisfactory when it is" kept at hand and given as soon a- the cold is con tracted and before it has become set tled in the system, in almost every instance a severe cold may be warded oil by taking this remedy freely as soon as the first indication of the cold appears. There is no danger in giv ing it to children for it contains no harmful substance. It is pleasant to 1 take—both adults and children like it. ! Buy it and you will '.ret the best. It I always cures.

"As a Little Ilnbe." The man who had traveled had fin ished telling his hearers of the terrific physique of the natives of South Amer ican republics, lie described them as big, massive men, with brawny arms and scraggy muscles. In fact, his speech gave the idea that they were the biggest men to be encountered any where on earth or elsewhere. "Y.'hy," said the man who had mere ly stayed at home and read the papers, "I thought they were very babyish." "What gave you that impression?" asked the man who had traveled. "Surely nothing has ever been printed about them. They are certainly giants. What made you think they were ba bies?" "I had read," said the other, "that they are nearly always up in arms."— New York Times. So She Went. "1 don't like to sail," she said posi tively.
