BERLIN,' Aug. 27. Fears over the
condition of Emperor William are
growing and a bulletin from the phy
sicians in attendance was anxiously
awaited in all circles today. Continued
announcements from the Kaiser's bed
fside that the indisposition is slight,
amounting only to a cold and a touch
of muscular rheumatism had been re
ceeived with credence by the general
-public but were sceptically viewed in
'court and diplomatic circles.
This doubt is strengthened today as
!the result of an announcement from
iCount Eulenberg, chief marshal of the
imperial court that the emperor will
have to abandon all his engagements
for this week and gave himself entire
ly over to rest.
The proposed trip to Switzerland
which was scheduled to start on Sep
tember 2 is now expected to be can
telled despite the announcement made
!4 hours ago that the emperor was de
termined to go.
The carriage in which Napoleon I.
made his famous retreat from Moscow
and In which he as emperor general set
out from Paris in the campaign which
closed at Waterloo is preserved in Lon
don the trustees of the Wellington
estate, the relic having formerly been
the property of the "Iron Duke." It is
a tvo seated conveyance, with the top
and sides lined with iron. There is also
7 front "curtain" of iron that can be
raised and lowered at will. The wheels
are large and heavy, and the steps are
finished in curious battle designs done
in silver. The emperor used the back
seat and kept his pillows and blanket

was used as a cupboard and was pro-!

Quaint Witch Charm is Discovered
In German Bible Owned by Ed. Fulte
The days when persons still believ
ed in the magic power of charms and
spells, when superstition still en
thralled thousands, and witches were
supposed to cure diseases and avert
sickness and evil, is vividly recalled
by a quaint parchment discovered in
an old German Bible recently submit
ted to a local minister by Ed Fulle, of
Liberty avenue, who bought the Bible
as a curiosity.
In looking through the old book,
the pastor came across the old parch
ment, engrossed with old German type,
and containing a magical charm that
was supposed to ward off fire and
pestilence from the person who car
ried or kept in his domicile the magic
The parchment is yellow with age,
but in an excellent state of preserva
tion. The type of the printing is in
large letters and the German style of
the kind used in the first quarter of
the eighteenth century.
The charm was first printed in
Koenigsberg, Prussia, by Alexander
Bauman. It had a tremendous sale
and the printer who catered to the
superstition of the German peasants
made money fast in the disposal of
the scroll that was supposed to be
a preventative against the ravages of
fire and pestilence.
The publisher asserts in the intro
duction that the royal Prussian gov
ernment tnd the general superintend
ent at Koenigsberg declared the inci

incantation successfully as an actual
A Christian gypsy, king of Egypt,
so the publisher states, first discover
ed the magical effect of the charm.
On June 10, 1714, in the kingdom
of Prussia, six gypsies were executed
by hanging, the seventh, a man aged
seventy, was to be executed by the
sword six days later. "Fortunately
for him," the old parchment says, "a
fire broke out, and the old gypsy was
released and taken to the scene of
the fire, there to show his art, which
he did to the great astonishment of
the onlookers. He quieted the fire in
one-half hour, so that it was complete
Of Importance in Increasing
(National News Association)
CHICAGO, Aug. 27. The four day
Eession of the twentieth annual meet
ing of the Travelling Engineers' Asso
ciation was convened here today with
a series of reports by special commit
tees bearing upon some of the biggest
i-roblems confronting railroad experts
ready for submission. Among the most
important of these were the questions
oi increasing the efficiency of locomo
tives by the use of chemically treated
water, submitted by Chairman F. Mo-
Ardle; a treatise on fuel economy, by!
Chairman E. P. Roesch; locomotive in-!

increasing the interest of engineers
snd firemen in the economical use of
luel and lubricants, by Chairman Rob
ert Collett and the advantages and dis
advantages of lead on modern high
sped locomoives, by J. F. Jennings.
Incidental to these reports data was
submitted from officials of railroads in
all rections of the country setting forth
the practical results of experimental
tests on their system.

then when tree is ready to trim take

cotton will be invisible and can easily
be removed to moisten.

The supernatural power which this
charm was supposed to contain if
kept in the home or carried on the

it. It is believed that one of the early
owners of the Bible purchased the
charm, and in superstitious belief
placed it in the old book. .
If it is remembered that the last
execution in Europe for Borcery took
place in 1782, the prevalence of the
belief in the efficacy of charms can
readily be understood.

Charges interpolated in a sermon by

general assembly, that Rev. Lyman

discussion here today. Rev. Matthews'
charge was dropped into a sermon on

How to Rip Furs.
There is a knack of ripping np old
furs with which all women are not fa
miliar. The pelt should be turned
wrong side up and the skin slowly and
carefully cut with a sharp penknife,
the blade penetrating the skin only
and not touching the long hairs.
Cutting fur with scissors destroys the
beauty of the plt that might be sav
ed by the penknife process. In sew
ing the strips together first be sure
that the direction of the hairs is the
same in both pieces when holding the
bits of skin firmly between thumb and
forefinger. With the fur side down

rather fine needle and strong, fine
thread, sewing near the edge.
