WIN MANY TROPHIES. Splendid Record of the Californians at the Fest. TWO BECORDS BROKEN, The High Scores of Helm and Strecker Not Touched by Eastern Marksmen. ONE PRIZE NOT ANNOUNCED. It Is Thought the Germania Award Will Be Brought Back by the Team. NEW YORK, N. V., July B.— Two first prizes, one second and one third go to California, as examples of the prowess of her delegation to the National Sharp shooters' Union, to say nothing of various other prizes, the status of which will not be determined until Wednesday; silver festival cups, gold and silver medals won by every member of the team ; two records for the future annals of the National Schuetzenfest to chronicle— Strecker's 97, on the man, and George Helm's 75, on the ring— besides A. H, Pape's record of seven red flags in succession, and the tact which, though not officially annoxinced, is pretty well known to be accurate, that George Helm's bullet hit Germania fair in the center, and that the big fellow is likely to carry the $300 first prize with his other trophies to the folks at home, are facts enough to convince 'the merest novice at the game that the delegation from San Francisco fully kept its promise to make things hum at the first National Schuet zenfest. and when the cannon boomed out the token that all was over, the California boys had reason for self-congratulation. | The match between DorrJer and Collins, of New York, and George Helm and Strecker is off. To-morrow the remainder of the team that did not go to New Haven before will do so as guests of the Winches ter Arms Company as follows: William Ehrenpfort,F. 0. Young.A. H. Pape, Louis Bendel and A. Jungblut. Mr. Ebrenpfort will be accompanied by his daughter and Mrs. Jungblut goes with her husband. The best relative scores of the Califor nians on different targets are as follows: Standard— A. H. Pape 47, A. Strecker 46, E. Blondau 46, D. B. Faktor4s, F. 0. Young 45. George Helm 45, F. P. Schuster 44, L. Bendel 42. Ring— George Helm 75, A. Strecker 73, F. O. Young 70, L. Bendel 71. F. P. Schuster 71, D. B. Faktor 71, E. Blondau 70, A. H. Pape 70, W. Ehrenpfort 60. Man— A. Strecker 97, A. H. Pape 93. F. O. Young 91, E. F. Blondau 88, D. B. Fak tor 86, F. P. Schuster 86, S. C Bendel 83. Columbia— F. P. Schuster 71, D. B. Faktor 68, A. H. Pape 60, A. Strecker 64, G. Helm 63, G. Alpers 60, E. Blondau 58, L. Bendel 57. F. 0. Young 55. Young had hard lines at this target. He made a25 on his first shot, but when get ting ready for the second his gun went off accidentally while pointed toward the ceil ing, and the shooting committee kept the fact as to whether he was to be permitted to fire the shot over again or have it counted a miss, under advisement for twelve hours, and when Young went to shoot to-day he found wind and light all against his sighting and consequently made a bad ticket. The marksmen are yet praising The Call for the correct reports of the perform ance of Californians at the fest. The last gun of Schuetzenfest was fired at 7 oclock this evening, and the cannon announcing the fact had scarcely done re verberating when the Schuetzens shook hands and pledged each other to their next meeting in 1896. The shooting to-day was average and did not disturb the records of previous days, and aB far as premier honors at the targets are con cerned the positions are unchanged from last night. Gus Zimmerman made a determined effort to beat A. Strpelr.T's record on the man target, but co:i!d only reach 96, or within one point of the Californian's score, made on the first day of the shoot ing, and it adds a eood deal to the merit of Strecker's score to have held out on a siege of eight days. Henry Holges of Brooklyn also made 95 yesterday, so there is a tie for second place, but according to the rule in such cases the best ticket de cided the tie, and Zimmerman has a ticket of 95 to back up his. The Hoboken man, therefore, must put up with third honors. One first prize that goes to the Golden Gate city carries with it the distinction of being the only score at the tournament which was "moglich" or the highest possi ble. This 18 on the ring target, won by George Helm with a full ticket of three 25's. F. C. Ross of Brooklyn and Strecker fight out the issue for second place on 73 each. Premier honors on the standard re main in New York, Gus Zimmerman, the famous crack of the Zettler Racing Club, having reached the best score of 49, which was only equaled once before, by F. C. Ross, at Chicago. There are no less than four ties at 48 for second place, followed by seven scores of 47 each, so that th« committee will have their work cut oat to decide the places. The 47 contingent includes A. H. Pape of San Francisco. Seven scores of 46 fol low, credited to Strecker and Blodau of San Francisco, Pope of Hartford, Conn., and J. E. Kelley of Springfield, Mass. The coveted prize on the honor target Columbia will also remain East, going to Long Island on the sensational defeat of Schuster, the Califoreia crack, by William Vorsbach on Saturday. Vorsbach made 72 as against Schuster's 71. James Buschfield of Lawrence, Mass., takes third prize. The results on the honor target Germania will not be known until to-morrow or next day, as the bullseyes have to be measured by a machine specially made for the pur pose. None of the results have been made known officially yet. All the prize-winners will be officially given on Wednesday and the prizes distributed. CHA-BEO JtY .dUV AAOJtT MOB. A Maligner of Woman Narrowly E»~ capes a Lynching. COUNCIL BLUFFS, lowa, July B.— Charles Tulen, a Dane, appeared at the police station to-night and asked for pro tection. It seems that he had been saying ugly things about a neighbor's wife named Hansen, and on his return from work to- night overheard Mr. Hansen make threats about taking his (Tulen's) life. He had hardly reached his own door when he observed a crowd following him, and Han- Ben carrying a noosed rope, on the run. A race then ensued in which the crowd tried to lasso him. the rope frequently hitting his head. Arriving at the railroad cross ing of the Burlington he managed to jump aboard a moving freight train, and eventually escaped from his pursuers. The police are investigating. CAPTUBJiI* IX CHIRIQUI. A Texas Forger Apprehended by Colom- limn J'olire. NEW YORK, N. V., July B.— A Times special from Panama says: A. C. Love, the Texas forger and em bezzler, was brought here yesterday on the steamship Casma. He was captured in the province of Chiriqui, traveling under the name of Arthur Lorrain. He had passed from Mobile through Bocas del Toro and reached David, where he was apprehended by the police. What led to his arrest was the fact that he was at rirst mistaken for a forger for whom the police were looking, because he was tryinjc to change creen backs into Co lombian money. He was finally captured aboard a sailing vessel which was leaving Pedegral for Punta Arenas. VA.S HOVTOX TO BAXO. Judge JLunt Sanies the Date for the Mur derer's Execution. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., July B.— In Division 1 of the District Court Judge Lunt this afternoon denied a motion for arrest of judgment and sentenced Albert W. Van Ho v ton to be hanged at Canyon City penitentiary some time within the week beginning July 27. Van Houton on December 19 last shot Hn* instantly killed Richard Newell Jr , chief engineer of the Midland Terminal Railroad, near Victor, in Cripple Creek district. ADRIFT IN AN OPEN BOAT Horrible Sufferings of a Family Picked Up Off the Bermudas. Parents and Children Delirious for the Want of Food and Drink." NEW YORK, N. V., July 8.-For forty one hours Joseph Dollas, his wife, Rosie, and two children, one 7 years and the other 11 months old, were in an open boat off the Bermudas without food or water. The children had become delirious ajid the mother frantic; the father was hardly less affected. All four had given up hope, and were lying in an agony of hunger and thirst and despair when the look out on the British steamship Beallarden, which arrived here yesterday, saw them. Captain Davidson ordered the man at the wheel to bear down to the little boat. As the Beallarden drew near the officers on the bridge could make out a red dress flying from the masthead. As far as they could make out there were three persons in the craft, and all appeared to be dead. Seated in the stern seat was the gaunt figure of a man holding a little boy in his arms, and beside him was a woman, with her arms clasped over her breast, as if shielding some object. The Beallarden drew closer, and when half a mile from the boat Captain Davidson ordered the wnistle of the steamship blown, but no attention was paid to it by the small boat. Suddenly the man opened his eyes. He looked about and th^n, seeing the big steamship, tried to ri6e, but fell back ex hausted. "Water, for God's sake, water!" moaned the man in the sailboat when the Beallarden ran alongside. A bucket full was lowered from the side of the steamship to the deck of the little sailboat. Then occurred a scene which brought tears to the eyes of the Bailors on the Beallarden. The man, before touching his own parched lips \Hth the water, tried to awaken his wife. Me shook her gently, but there was no response, only a moan. "Here's water. Rose," he said. Still no response. Then the man plunged his hand into the pail. He drew back his wife's head and put a handful of water to her lips. She opened her eyes and smiled. She seemed to think it a dream until her husband raised the pail to her lips. She drank. She slaked th« thirst of her offspring and then the hus band drank. \\ hen Captain Davidson asked if they were hungry the man said they were. They were supplied with food, and the man told his story. His name, he said, was Joseph Dollas. He was a Bermuda fisherman, changing his residence from one part of the island to another. He put all his household geods in his twenty-foot fishing-sniack, and with his wife and family, 21 days before, left Bermuda. There was bad "weather, and the Iloeie drifted from her course to the northeast. Not a vessel came in sight. The provisions gave out. and the four per sons were all but dead when the BeaUar den came in sight. July 5 the Rosie was ICO miles east of Delaware. Mrs. Dollas became ill; her little child was dying in her arms when Providence sent assistance. Captain Davidson suggested that Dollas abandon the Rosie. This the Bermuda skipper refused to do, saying it was all he had in the world. WORK OF CLEVER FORGES Two Men Said to Have Victim ized Banks In Many Cities. Hundreds of Bogus Contracts for Advertising Found In Their Possession. BUTTE, Mont., July B.— At the prelimi nary trial of H. A. Sloan and William Mc- Mahon here to-day on the charge of trying to collect $85 on a forged certificate a gi gantic forgery scheme affecting bankers and merchants in nearly every city in the United States was brought to light. The two men were arrested several weeks ago when they presented themselves at tho First National Bank and tried to collect $85 on a contract for an advertisement in a publication. The bank declared the signa tures on the contract a forgery, and after the arrest hundreds of similar contracts were found, bearing the signatures of dif ferent merchants and mining companies. At the trial to-day a copy of the alleged publication was produced and found to be an old book with a new introductory leaf pasted. The addrcsa of the publishing house is given as 61 to 69 Gold street, New York. How the men obtained the signa tures is unknown. They have advertise ments of firms in Chicago, St. Louis, Omaha, Denver, Salt Lake, Spokane, San Francisco, Helena and many other cities, and estimated to represent over $35,000. Further developments are expected as the trial proceeds. The Royal Baking Powder is recom mended by the best authorities on cuisine. Its sale is larger than that of all the other creaui of tartar baking powders combined, and it has more friends among housekeep ers than any other similar article. TOOK A FEARFUL JPLVX6E. Chicago TForkingmen Fall to Their Death From a High Scaffolding. CHICAGO, 111., July B.— Jacob Sellers and Andrew Austeretz met instant death to-day while working on a scaffold on a building at the corner of Franklin and Madison streets. They were sixty-five feet above the ground, when suddenly the rope parted and both were hurled to the ground. Their bodies struck the sidewalk and w«re i terribly mutilated. THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1895. DECIDE ON AN APPEAL The Stanford Case to Go to the Supreme Court. REPORT OF McKISSICK Recommends a Continuation of the Fight by the . Government. i HARMON CERTAIN TO CONCUR. The Attorney-General Likely to Issue an Order for the New Move To-Day. WASHINGTON, D. C, July B.—Attor ney General Harmon, in all probability, will to-morrow order an appeal to bo taken from the decision of Judge Ross in the case of the United States acainst the estate of the late Senator Leland Stanford to re cover about $15,000,000. The suit, it will be remembered, was in stituted in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California, to establish the liability of stockholders of the Central and Southern Pacific Railroad Cempany under the laws of the States, for the dues of corporations to the United States. Judge Ross decided against the Government on every point raised in sup port of its claim. Attorney McKissick, who had charge of the litigation for the United States, has reported to the Attor ney-General recommending that an appeal be taken, and this was being examined to day by the Attorney-General. The invariable custom of the department is to concur in the recommendation of the attorneys in charge of cases and it is un derstood that no departure will be made in this instance. MODEHX WAR SALLOOXS. Those in Germany the Latest at to WASHINGTON, D. C, July 8.-Inter esting accounts are given in the bulletin on the autumn military maneuvers of 1894 in Austria, France and Germany, issued by the military information division of the War Department, of balloons manipu lated by the troops in the field. That in the German army, the bulletin says, is the latest as to shape. The spheri cal balloons sway and spin in the wind in such a manner as to make it very difficult to take observations from them. To obvi ate this inconvenience the new form has been devised. H is a cylinder about 60 feet long by 18 feet in diameter. Outside the main cylinder are two conical ex crescences, it '8 understood that this form is more stable than the usual spheri cal one. The device for towing and land ing the balloon by hand consists of an iron bar about 4 inches wide by 4 feet long. In the middle of this on the upper side is at tached a grooved wheel, carrying the cable. On the lower side are fourteen rings, through each of which a rope is passed, leaving the ends about live feet long. It is practicable to lead the balloon by hand wherever a detachment of twenty-eight men can walk. To land the balloon without loss of gas the lower end of the cable is made fast to a tree or held by a squad of men. Twenty eight men on the hand ropes then waik towird the spot where the balloon is to be brought down. As they march along the cable is laid on the ground, and when they have gpne a distance equal to the height to which the balloon has ascended it is landed. Written communications from the basket are sent down th« cablo in a tin cylinder attached to it by rings. STATUS OF THE MILITIA. Total Number of Men In the National Guard is Now 114,146.

Arkansas makes no ap propriation and depends upon . its allot ment from the United States appropria tion and the subscription of the members and friends of the State guard. The States appropriating in 1894 $100,000 or more, be sides New York, were: Pennylvania $320, --000, Massachusetts $215,000.

Ex-Attorney-General Garland Dis couraged Over Democratic Prospects. WASHINGTON. D. C, July B.— "There are going to be seven Presidential tickets in the field next year," said ex- Attorney- General Garland to-day, while discussing the political situation. While admitting that he is out of active politics, Mr. Gar land feels that he still has some influence upon the Democrats of the South who be lieve in the free and unlimited coinage of ailver. He was recently induced to write a letter advocating free silver, which he sent to the recent silver convention at Memphis. He is a rampant silver man, and predicts there is going to be great trouble through out the Jand if the silver question is ig nored, as he fears it will be. "Yes," he said, "there will be seven Presidential tickets in the field. There will be a nominal Democrat and a nominal Republican ticket. There will be a bimet allic and a single-gold-standard ticket, a Populist ticket, a Prohibition ticket and a Woman's rights ticket. "The outlook is not at all encouraging for the Democrats in any of the silver States,' and although the convention at Kentucky complimented Secretary Carlisle by refus ing to adopt a free-silver platform, I will wager 5 to 1 that the Republicans carry that State at the coming election." FRIENDLY TOWARD SILVER. Governor Matthews' Views on the Situation in In- diana. Declares There Is a Growl ng Senti ment In Favor of the White Metal. WASHINGTON, D. C, July B.—Gover nor Claude Matthews of Indiana, a possi ble Presidential nominee, is here. On being asked about the silver question the Gover nor said he believed no convention would be held in his State as had been done in Illinois. "I have advised with different Demo crats," he said, "and urged that this be not done. There is a 'deep current of friendly feeling to silver in our State, and it is fairly holding its own. A convention, however, seems hardly called for, because there are no candidates to be nominated, and a gathering of Democrats for that pur pose would be certain to attract silver men from Populists and other parties. An at tempt was made to have a recent conven tion of editors declare for silver. I talked with several of the editors and with the chairman of the State Committee and dis couraged any euch action." Governor Matthews believes that the Democrats will take no position hostile to silver at their next State convention. He thinks the platform will be such as to meet the approval of conservative men, proba bly omitting the mention of any ratio, but leaving that to be fixed by legislation. The sentiment is very strontr in Indiana, Illinois and lowa for a good Western man, and Governor Matthews believes that some Western candidate would b« unavoidable. "I am grateful for the mention my friends have made about me in that con nection," the Governor replied, when questioned concerning his own boom, "but really I have not encouraged it, and have made no plans to further my nomination: and I do not intend to do so, for with all modesty I can hardly place so high an estimate on my qualifications for that office." Goyernor Matthews admitted that if a nomination were offered him he could hardly decline it. Of the Republican can didates he thinks it not unlikely that ex- President Harrison will be the favored one. "I tell you," said the Governor, "those Indiana people are putting in some effect ive work for Mr. Harrison, and they expect to win," Cadets on a Cruise. WASHINGTON, D.

OPJECUJDATOXS IMOAD. Wheat Takes « Downward Turn on the Chicago Board of Trade. CHICAGO. 111., July B.— Speculators on the Chicago Board of Trade to-day threw wheat, corn, oats and provisions on the market regardless of price. Wheat, at the close of the session, »howed a decline of 3% cents since Saturday afternoon. Cash wheat is now only about 15 cents higher than the lowest price it sold for last winter and about 16 cents lower than the price it was bringing six weeks ago. July wheat, which sold for more than 82 cents near the end of May, was worth only 66^$ cents afr one time to-day. The fact that foreigners are getting all tne wheat they need from Russia, India and other competitorsof the United States was the uppermost consideration in the minds of the speculators in their selling anxiety. Only 5 per cent of the capital of this country is owned by millionaires. CORNELL WILL WIN. A Surprise in Store for the English 'Var sities. AN EXPERT'S OPINION. Though Two of the Americans Are 111, He Predicts Their Triumph. THEY ARE MAKING FAST TIME Have Outdone the Britishers In All of Their Practice Races. NEW YORK, N. V., July B.— A special cable dispatch from Henley to the Mail and Express says: Cornell's troubles are coming at an un fortunate time, and with the first heat in the grand challenge cup series to be de cided to-morrow, it is unfortunate to have to report two men on the sick list. Hager and Fennell are not right, and there is some anxiety about the latter, as his tem perature reached 105 last night. In addi tion to this, he was unable either to sleep or eat. I am of the opinion that he is suffering from malaria and will be all right to-morrow. Courtney has had a touch of it off and on, and at times has been a very sick man. Although things are not running as smoothly as one could wish I see no rea son to change my opinion that Cornell will not only win, but the way she will do it will be the biggest kind of a surprise to Leander. Eton has withdrawn from the grand challenge cup and this will give tte Thames Rowing Club a row over in the first heat because the draw will not be changed. In a letter under date of Henley, June 29, the correspondent states: There are but two crews at Henley which may be regarded as absolutely formidable in the race for the grand challenge cup so far as Cornell is concerned. One is the Leander, composed of six Oxonians and two Oamhridge men ; and the other is New College of Oxford. The other crews are thought to be mere sideshows, so far as their chances of success are concerned. It is only yesterday that the Ithaca eight, in a trial over the last half of the course from Frawley up, finished the distance in 3:30, and this when only pulling forty-two strokes to the minute at the start and forty-four at the finish. In the Leander and New College trials the stroke was generally never below thirty-eight to the minute and was invari ably run up to forty-two and on several occasions to forty-four. The difference in the American and English strokes is bow hard the Englishmen had to row to main tain the high motor power. The course from Fawley to the finish, which is given as half way, is fully five seconds slower than the first half of the Journey, for the reason that the water is more shallow and the current is faster. Cornell has gone from the start to Faw ley in 3:22, or nine seconds better than the New College and eleven seconds better than Leander. Nine seconds means about two and half boat lengths and eleven sec onds mean three lengths. In the trial against the Canadians Cornell went the full course in 7:04. On another occasion. and that without pace-making of any kind, and on the same day that New College made her 7:11, Cornell traveled up the course in 7:02. All these trials have beeH performed un der fairly favorable conditions as regards water. It is therefore possible to draw conclusions and comparisons. G. S. Franci», the manager of the Cornell crew, was seen this evening in connection with a rumor which reached here by way of the United States that perhaps the American crew would not take part in the ranee to-morrow afternoon for the grand challenge cup. Francis declared that the crew never appeared in better form than it did to-day. Hager and Fennell, the two men who w«re ailing, are much better. Francis added that the crew would race, and that he believed it would either win or push the Leander crew to its utmost. RETURN OF THE PUZZLE Evidence That the Yacht Had Been on a Filibustering Excursion. Appearanoe of Its Cabins Gives the Impression That an Army Had Camped In Them. NEW YORK, N. V., July 8.-The steam yacht Puzzle, formerly owned by H. B. Claflin of this oity, arrived yesterday after noon from Brunswick, Ga.. via Wilming ton, N. C, after an absence of nearly a year. The Puzzle is consigned to Flint, Eddy & Co. This is the craft that caused such vocifer ous protestations of the Spanish Consul at Brunswick, Ga. On July 2 the Puzzle slipped out of Brunswick, in command of Captain Avery, who is said to have been once in the employ of the Mallory line. She had cruising papers, so the captain was not called upon to name his destina tion. Her cruise from that date until her arrival to-day is narrated by' Captain George H. Merrifield. " A.fter leaving Brunswick," he said, "we stood up the coast. Off Charleston, S. C, it blew a gale. We held on, however, hoping to ride it out it safety. Forty miles north of Charleston, in the toughest bit of the gale we had, the shaft coupling broke. There was too much wind to spread sail, and if we anchored the chain would have dragged us under. We were on a lee shore, drifting fast and in a pretty tight place. The engineer went at the shaft, and we drifted on toward the breakers. Just at the edge of the combers the engineer got the shart coupled. We got out or there in a hurry and put back to Charleston. "When the wind moderated we put to sea. We touched at Wilmiugton for coal. On the way to New York nothing hap pened to us. ' At Charleston the Puzzle was watched by revenue officials and acentsof the Span ish Consul, but was allowed to leave with out molestation. What her intentions were is a mystery. The yacht is 96 feet over all, 15:5 beam and 6 foot draught. Her speed is said to be about thirteen knots an hour. She has a crew of seven men. Her cabins, how ever, look as though an army had camped in them. Standing on the pier beside the yacht are several hundred cases of ammu nition. The watchman said they were freight for the Mallory line, and were not for the Puzzle. The men aboard say that the yacht will be turned over to her own ers to-morrow. KILLED FOR HIS PROPERTY. A Wyoming Rancher Murdered by an Employe. PIERRE, S. D., July B.— The man ar rested at Miller Saturday under the name of Nels Carlson and brought to this city yesterday on suspicion of having mur dered the real Nels Carlson, was put in jail last night, and after teiiing a number of contradictory stories at last broke down and confessed to the deed. He gives his true name as E. W. Davis and his home Wellington, 111., where he has no relatives nearer than uncles and aunts. He hired to Carlson at Gillette, Wyo., where Carlson left a bunch of horses and much stock, which Davis was attempt ing to dispose of while here. They came together at a point about nftv miles west of Fort Pierre, where the murder was com mitted. Carlson, the murdered ruan, owned a ranch on the Stinking Water River in Northwest Wyoming, near Marquette Postofflce, and has been throueh this part of the State every summer for several years selling horses, and last year left a herd at Miller, which Davis had a claim for just before his arrest. Carlson, in his visits to this city, had made the acquaintance of and became engaged to Miss Blanche Car penter. A body of men will go out from Fort Pierre to take up the body and give it a decent burial. The Circuit Court is now in session at Fort Pierre, and Davis will likely be tried this week, as all the circum stances indicate a cold-blooded murder for the purpose of securing Carlson's property.

The reDort of the committee on normal education was presented by the chairman, John W. Cook, president of the Illinois State Normal School, at Normal, 111. The topic discussed was ''The kind and amount of practice work and its place in the nor mal school course." To obtain informa tion respecting the usage of normal schools circulars were sent to the leading institu tions of that character in this country. Keporls were received from sixty-three schools, I Professor Cook's paper was a resume of the various plans adopted, with compari sons and conclusions. The questions of at what time shall practice work begin and how much of it shafl be done were the main ones. The report recommended practice work after a year of theoretic work, to be carried on a part of each day. The committee deprecated the custom of some normal schools requiring diplomas from high schools, which is claimed to result in filling the normals with girls and the schools with women teachers, the the ory being that man's influence is as much needed in the schools as that of woman.

Be Will Make JVo Mort> Speeches in favor of Silver. LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 7.— Senator Blackburn has been called off the stump in Kentucky. He had an appointment to speak at Carlisle to-day. He went there and took the stand for twelve minutes, telling why he could not speak. Senator Blackburn is still so rabid in favor otfree coinage that the Democratic State Central Committee thought the in terest of the party would be better served if he kept out of the fight. Consequently a letter was addressed him by Chairman Carroll, asking him to make no speeches.' Senator Blackburn said he had worn the Democratic harness so long that he was well accustomed to it, and did not think he could work for any other party. How ever, he said he would do as he had been requested, and make no more speeches. NEW WOMAN AND OLD MAN. JUrs. Toltz Turns «• Terse Epigram in Comparing Them. NEW YORK, N. V., July B.— xMrs. Clara Shortndge Foltz, the first woman admitted to the San Francisco bar and one of its shining lights, is at the Waldorf. With her are her two daughters, Trella Foltz, an actress of recognized merit, and Virginia Foltz. who is gifted with a fine contralto voice, which she is going to Italy to cultivate. They will sail Wednesday on the Paris. Mrs. Foltz is an enthusiast on the new woman question. "You men are inclined to treat it very lightly now," she said "and to laugh at woman's efforts, but you will laugh on the other side of your face when you come to realize, as you some day must, that the new woman is not only abreast of the old man, but is leaving him behind."

A famous doctor, who regards nagging as a disease, says that one woman In fifty is more or less afflicted, while only one In live thou- sand is a hopeless nagger, or, in other words, has an incorrigibly bad temper. Well, Unit is good showing, considering: what women have to put up with in hot weather. They work in overheated kitchens. They are vexed with a thousand cares, end when night comes, what with cooking, mending', and the care of restless children, they are utterly worn out. The learned doctor doesn't say what sort of medicine he gives his nagging patients. Xatur- ally, he would not publish his prescriptions in the newspapers. But women— and men too— who feel the withering, blighting effect of the torrid weather, may be assured that nothing else than a pure stimulant like Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey will give them the sustained energy and elasticity for which that standard stimulant is famous. Free from deleterious matter as a mountain spring, this whiskey sharpens the appetite and assists digestion. Possibility of danger in drinking water and in the season's fruits and vegetables is averted by Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey. Jangled nerves and a stomach in- clined to mutiny are sources of discomfort which cease to annoy when the entire system is toned with Duffy's Malt Whiskey.
