The millionaire monopolist of the Dressed-Beef Pool,Philip D. Armour, after a long evasion and defiance of the Senatorial inquiry into the busi ness, appeared befoie Senator Vest’s committee at Washington last Satur day. The committeemen drew on their soft kid gloves with which to handle the wealthy Chicago packer. Senator Vest opened the examina tion with an apologetic denial of any desire to pry into the big operator’s private affairs, and begged Mr. Ar mour to check him if he should inad vertently ask a question objectiona ble to the witness from a private standpoint. Under these social amenities it is not surprising that Mr. Armour glibly replied to all im material questions and was oblivious or declined to answer when any ma terial question was asked. But if a butcher with a small bank account had been before the committee would he have met with similar len ient and considerate treatment?—N. Y. World. A dispatch from Scott City, Kan sas, Sunday says: Yesterday the house of Charles Ford, a farmer liv ing about a mile east of here, caught fire and was totally destroyed. In the excitement of the fire Mrs. Ford forgot her baby until it was too late to safely return to the house and she was held back by the assembled neighbors. She frantically struggled to get loose, but when she saw that she could not, she called to her dog, a large Newfoundland, and told him to get the baby. The noble animal dashed through the fire and soon returned carrying the child in his teeth unharmed. The dog was slightly burned about the hips, but not seriously. The following verdict in the Cronon case is reported in Monday’s Chicagd dispatches: We, the jury, find the defendant John F. Boggs not guilty. We, the jury, find the defendeut John Kunze guilty of- manslaughter as charged in the indictment, and fix his punishment at imprisonment in the peuiteutiary for a term of three years. We, the jury, find the defendants, Daniel Coughlin, Patrick O’Sullivan and Martin Burke, guilty of murder iu the manner and form ns charged in the indictment, and fix the penalty at imprisonment in the penitentiary for the term of their natural lives. Mane—I am will in to marry you, Charles, even if you are poor, but do you think 3 T ou can take care of me, anyway? Charles—O, darling, by this strong right arm raised to heaven I swear that I will support you alw'ays, oven if I have to take in washing for you to do. And they were married, —Munsey’s Waokly.
