ROSA SONNENSCHEIN Jewish woman who owns and edits a magazine devoted to the ad vancement cf Hebrew women. She comes of an ancient rabbinical family in Vienna, "her people be ng st? li ilj tr hcdox Jewp. At an early age she came to America and, imbibing- the liberal spirit of the atre, became imbued with progressive contributed to newspapers and magazines and finallr decided to inaugurate a periodical of her own. The idea fructified in Chicago, where for some years The American Jewess was pub'ished. About three years ago the headquarters were removed to New York city, whence it is now issued The publication is atunique One, special attention being devoted to the h'ttory of such Jewish women as have made their marks A DUEL THAT NEVER OCCURRED. The German Student-Bully Was Afraid of the Texas Pistol. "I tell you,, gentleman,' duels are terrible things," observed one of At lanta's most prominent musicians the other evening, to a prominent insur ance man, a prominent lawyer, a pro minent railroad official and a promin ent dentist a little coterie tbat every day rides in and out together on tone if the suburban trains. European duels, professor?" mildly inquired the lawyer, who is something of a wit. "Yes, sir; yes, sir," repl'ed the pro fessor earnes'.ly, all unm.ir.dful of any sircasm; but he saw it when a smile went around the crowd, ana men ne ad Jed quickly: "Ob, you may laugh, gentleman, but j "But what, professor?" encouraged the lawyer, smili' g. "But I know," said the professor. "I," modestly lowering his eyes ana voice, "speaK trom actual experience.- The lawyer pressed him for the story; and the (railroad official, the insur ance man and the dentist all crowded up closer to hear how so soft a man nered fellow ever came to figure in such a bloodthirsty role. '-Well, it was when 1 was student in in, but neger mind the town the country as Germany. I was the only American there with one exception. The one exception was the cause of the rouble. She is now Mrs. "Ah! I bee in to see if alously !" broke in the member of the bar. The nrofeesor smiled assent' an'A con tinued f "Naturallv we felt attracted toward ech other strangers in a strange land together both very patriotic all that -orl of thing, you know. But somebody else was attracted betides me a great big, double jointed Dutchman, who 1 never did like anyhow. ,He had a pen chant for bullying everybody he came n contact with, and be wasn't any sort of a musician either. But he was an excellent 6wordtman a most excellent one. And his reputation as a duelist wasn't bloodies?. So, of course, when we two met and we met irequntl5 was naturally diplomatic.- But it wasn't long before friction commenced n sDite of me. and the more concilia tory I became the more domineering Women nowa days do not have t S to use a stream of water for a lookinar - trlas. They have modern mirrors that will tell them very promptly whether their beautv is tadine. A worn. an's beauty fades vy rapidly if she is troubled with some derangement oi tne distinctlv feminine oraranism. Ignorance or carelessness in this respect frequently pauses exeat sufferiner and irregularity in after life. Little irregularities and weak nesses in girlhood should be looked upon nromntlv and tironerlv treated at once. Mothers cannot be too conscientious in this resnect. and cannot throw aside the prudery that is so prevalent upon this point too soon. Every young woman should know something about her own physical make-un. and the importance to her future of her local as well as general health. A woman who suffers from weaknesses pe culiar to her sex will rapidly lose her beauty, her general health, her amiability and her usefulness and capability as a wife and housekeeper. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription promotes regularity of all fern inine functions, gives sturdy health to the distinctlv feminine organism and prepares it to meet the trials of wifehood and moth, erhood. The " Favorite Prescription " is not a cure-all. It is intended for but one class of disorders and is good for no other. Taken during the period of gestation, it makes parturition easy, and banishes the discomforts of the expectant months. All good medicine dealers sell it. " T wish to exoress mv thanks for the good I have received from Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scription." writes Mrs. E. Scovill. of Bolton, Stephenson Co., Ills. " I have used it at differ ent times for the last eight vears. It is the best medicine for expectant mothers. I never tried it for that until my last baby. I had been very bad, almost helpless. I could not get out of bed alone, or even turn over. Last December I com menced taking the ' Favorite Prescription.' and could soon get in and out or bed as well as at any time. On March 29th I gave birth to an eleven pound boy without pain, and have since been at WCU. anq neaimy as 4 ever wpa, has the distinction of being the only ideas. For a number of years she as literateurs, musicians ' a-tists. he grew. Things rocked along, how ever, without trouble until one night I captured the young lady in a concert hall fand secured the privilege of es corting her home. As we came out of the door my Dutchman was standing with a party of students on the curb. He turned to th-.m. and laughing, made some offensive remarks. It was an insult that I eircp'y couldn't ignore. I carried my charge home, and hurried back. Tbe Dutchman was gone, but my blood wis up, ard I began a search for him. . Finally I found him in a beer garden laughing and joking with bis companions about the affair. By that time my passion was cooled, and try courage almost gone, but I took a fresh grip on the remnant tbat remained. and marched without a falter, I think, straight up to him. "You olanketv-b'ank-blank blank ety blank,' I said, in a picturesque mixture of German, French and good old English. He merely trailed at me. But tbe smile was diabolical. "I ttarted in again: " 'You shcsepsbeadl I began in Ger man. "That made him feroMous; I don't know why, but that term is considered the most insulting iu the vocabulary of the Faderland. "He pulled a card from his pocket and flung it on the table to me, with all the theatrical style of the old world. Then he turned and walked away. "A duel and with that butoher! My cheeks paled, I know. "If I decline disgrace. If I accepted death. 'Gentlemen, haviany of sou ever been in such a predicament? "Well, I pickei tbe card up mechan ically, and followed the Dutchman out. I had tbat day een him at sword play witn anotner student. Tne m m- ory of tbe Hash and sparkle -of his j blade danced 10 my brain like light ning flaunt s. He hid shown the skill of Jean Louis himself, and the agility and strength of a tiger. And he was a merciless man. What was I to do? ' 'I didn't know, but by the time I reached home I ht d formed a plan of battle. "Shortly after breakfast next morn ing, there came a fierce rap on mv chamber door. Instinct told me it was an emissary from my Dutchman. I was ready: " 'Come!' I criel. "Sure enough, a fel'ow I knew to be on very intimate terms with the big Hoi lander ettered. 1 saw a smile on his face when the door was opening. But when he caught sight of me, hor ror usurped its piace, and he started back a s'.ep ' r' 'Good day!' I said cordially. 'Sit iown! fit down! Glid to sre you. Oh this pist-l yes expect to bave to kill a man hate tJ kill men, though; never aia line it. jrra tn log a uitie to get my hand in.' "All the wbi'e I was lightly taking aim at this obj- ct and .that about the room. " 'Haven't shown it since I left Tex as; good weapon, you b.-t s-ix mn in six shots.' ' ' Msn!' broke in mv visitor, as soon a he could ev r catch nis breath, are you one 01 t cose Texan?' "I nrdded modestly. Then I thrust the old weapon a 2-foot, terrible-look ing, harmless old Colt's that hadn't been Bred since the war intomv pock et, cr as much as would get in, and seated myt-elf be-ide h'm. "He turned timidly to me. 'I represent Her r ,' be said, apolo- g tically. " 'Oh, has he cho?en you for his sec ond?' " ' Yes, sir. "ou insulted him, he claims, and be wants satisfaction. In his behalf I select swords.' "You do, eh? Don't you know enough to know tbat I have the hr ice of weapons and I choose pis tols!' "1 dwelt fondly on the last three words and patted the handl" of the old Colt's as I utterfd them Gradou goodopps, but how that sec md eyed me. Undoubtedly he saw before him one of Bret Harte's sprightly border leeperadoes a light-hearted man. who shot with' ut caripg or thinking, and never missed. "He soon took his departure and as he descended the steps I resumed niy fake practicing, whistling snatches jOf popular songs the while. "That afternoon my visitor was back, He had come to talk further about that duel,' he explaiced. " "All right,' I said, nonchalantly. " 'I'm opposed to pistols they're n t customary,' be a-gued. "My answer was to the effect that I didn t care a damn for custom I wan ed blood, and I was going to have it. Then I made him fix a time and place for the encounter. He tr'ed to evade the first, but I penned him down, and ere he left all details were ar ranged. "Back to his principal aeain he we; t with the sound or my oiltne wnisumg rinsing in his ears and a visiOT of 'hat pistol that.hed already st cved a sm -ill- sized graveyard dancing Delore nis eyf s. "He came back again. "And again. And again. And again "He wanted to know if an amicable settlement couldn't be reached. " 'Impossible!' I told him savagely. "As the time- approached he grew more and more desperate. "The day before the one set for the fight I was strolling up the principal street, and foolishly, unthinking, en tered a newly opened shooting gallery. As I picked up one of the little rifles to try my hard I happened to look over my shoulder, and lo! and behold, there was my Dutchman and his second standing across the street watching me. "Now do or die!' I said to myself, and I t-ok freful aim. There was a fla-h and i.n explosion, and the target a glass ball dancing in a jet of water flew into a thousand pieces. "That n'ght a gendarme arrested me. An anonvmous note to the police caused it The chircgraphy of the note was compared to tbat of the Dutchman's i n some sheet music at the conservatory. . "The long-limbed son of Holland felt constrained to seek another c'ime. "I became a lion.' Atlanta Journal. Tbe line of the new mineral railroad which is to be built from Durango to Panuco, is being gone over by a party of engineers, who bave an eye toward purchasing the franchise. Monterey Globe. It is proposed to start a bank in Chiapas under the name of the Mex ican Agricultural bank, and also to construct a railroad from Tonalo to Malacatlan, passing through Tapachula andTuxtla Chico. It is reported that the Williams tun nel is still much too hot to be entered for any distance by workmen. Ar rangements ft r handling freight over the Southern Pacific are said to have been definitely settled for three weeks, and a three of the engines of the San ta Fe Pacific haye been sent down to the Southern Pacific it looks aa though tbe management expects some little delay in the reopening of traffic over the Santa Fe Pacific The popular opinion among those best fitted to judge is that the tunnel will have to be en tirely blown out. The Denver and Rio Grande Rail road company has consummated an ar rangement with Kubn, Loeb & Co., and Soeyer 8f Co., for a refunding of the $6,382,500, 7 per cent first mortgage bonds maturing November 1, 1900. in to an equal amount of consolidated boD' b reserved for this purpose. The rew bonds will be issued at 41 per cent, and when tbe refunding is ac compli -hed the entire issue of consoli dated bonds will become a first mort gage on the system of the Denver A Rio'Grande railroad. The reduction in fixed charges will be about $160,000 per annum. The Compound locomotive. At tbe St, Louis Railway club meet irg Mr, J. S. Tburman, mechanical en gineer Missouri Pacific railway, . said: "I think tbe trouble that has b-en ex perienced with the compound engine and the teason it has not been adopted by more roada than at present is be cause tbe builders have been designing th-se engines and sell'ng them to rail road companies The railroad men take a certain amount of pride in what they have designed themselves, and they maintain that they can overcome the defect- tbat are found in them. 1 These matters take time, and we a e not yet really prepared for tbe change from simple to compound 'ocomotive. But my opinion is that tbe features em rod'ed in the comrouDd engine are es sentially correct, and, ith tbe slight modifications that may be found neces sary, I believe that it will become the standard American locomotive." Prof. J. Johnson (Washington un iversity) said: "With reference to the future of the o impound locomotive, my opinion is tbat J-bc compound loc 1 motive has come to stay. It is pecu liarly adapted to American conditions. With ht a vy loads at moderate spe ds, it certainly does save from 15 to 20 per cent of the fuel cost, as cow built and operated, and 'his is a considerable item. On light traio or on high speed sp ed service there is little saving of fuel, but where heivy passenger trains are to be hauled at the highest speed, or when tbe peed is limited by the steaming ca parity of the boih-r, there is a considerable reduction in tbe water to b-t evap ra ed, ard hence less diffi culty in maintaining tne pressure While the cylinder repairs are increas ed, or perhaps doubled, the boiler re pairs are greatly reduced, thus reiucing the total expens , because the roller repairs are the main it 3m.
