The banauet complimentary to Capt. Moses Dillon, tbe incoming co'.l ctor of customs at this port, in the Vendome hotel last cven!OGr, was as neat an en tertain ment as ever graced the festal board at El Paso and reflected on the foresight on the committee on arrange ments. While an invitation affair it was generally understood that every i one was welcome, and there was no in- ! tent ion of sllghtinir any one by an ' omission. About sixty-nve guee:s pa i down to the table, everyone was in good humor and determined to make tre occasion one pleasant to oe neia la memory. The larsre dining rooms of the Ven dome were brilliantly lighted and gaily decorated with American flags and bunting, in the central piece be ing a large picture of President Mc-1 Kir.lev. The tables were arrange d in a U shape with clusters of cut flowers at intervals on tne taoie ana a oout toniere laid at each plate. At the place of honor was seated Captain Dil lon, with the outgoing collecto-, Chas. Davis on his right, and the mister of ceremonies, Gen. A. G. Mallorv on the left. To the right sat Judge Edwards and Consul K'.ndrick and to the left Consul Mallen and Major Horace B. Stevens. Pitz-r'a orchest-a iurnunea tbe music and on the patriotic airs, everyone joined in the chorus. The menu was; Caviar, Mango Peppers, Sardines. Celery, Olives. Salted Peanuts. Cream of Chicken. Oyster : a ties. Roman Punch. Fattened Squab with Waereress. Asparagus with Browned Butter. Shrimp Salad, Mayonaise Dressing. Tomato jeiiy. Pistachio Nut Pudding. Coffee. Claret. Sautern. Champaign.

It is for this reason that women strive to become accomplished. They study in order that they may converse intelligently on all subjects. They strive to become good musicians, graceful dan cers and amiable hostesses. I All accomplishments are unavailing if a woman suffers from ill-health in a womanly way. The special weakness peculiar to the womanly organism, will rapidly wreck the general health. The sufferer will lose her natural vivacity, her wit, her good looks, and the ambition and power to display the accomplishments at her command. Any woman affected in this way should resort to Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It is a wonderful medicine for ailing women. It is the invention of an eminent and skillful physician. Dr. R. V. Pierce, for thirty years chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical - Institute, at Buffalo, N. Y. It aims to cure but one class of dis eases, and claims to be good for nothing else. It imparts health, elastic strength, vigor and virility to the delicate feminine organs. It prepares a woman for wifehood and motnernooa. Mrs. Ramon Sanchez. Penasco, Taos County, N. Mn in a letter to Dr. Pierce says: " From grateful heart my voic Roes up to God both night 7 and day in a solemn prayer that He may juard your health and preserve your life. I hereby ex press my jfratitude to you for the relief I nave received from your wonderful medicine. Favor ite Prescription.' After suffering years of misery I am to-day a healthy and happy wife, and can truthfully recommend to women the use of the 'Favorite Prescription' as a regulator of the monthly periods.'

By accepting that sacrifice thelloner comes out from unce- the olttJPi ann tbe bn of the law. To illuT'e, the law deirivea a man of hia liberry and proce-d to punishment him f- some violation of the law. But alon? come- a friend who pays tbe noe.

Jf the dinner accepts the offer he goes free, and is not eubjjcted any longer to tbe law. But if be refuses to accept pardon so frely offered, he has to suffer the consequences of his misdeeds Hence the text, there is no condemdat'on to those that are in Christ Jesus. Dr. Hanks speaks again tonight at the Baptist church. KILLED HKR ENGINEER. G H. Engine 815 Turned Over Last Evening: With Fatal Results. The third of the three bis? Schenec tady locomotives, 815, jumped a curve early last evening five miles east of La" e try while pullmer an east bound freight, turned over down the embank ment, fatally crushing her engi-eer. George Smith, aged 30, and badly bruised her fireman, W. G. Dulling, acred 22. The locomotive rolled over to the right, which accounts for the runner's not being able to save him self, while the fireman on tbe left side of the cab threw him elf out of his window, and according to reports es caped without broken bones, though severely bruised and shaken up. Both men live in ban Antonio, and Smith leaves a wife a'd two children, while Dullnig is unmarried. Smith was al've, it is reported when pulled out from under the wrecked cab, but be tween the scalds from tbe broken steam pipes and the crushing be re ceived, the poor fellow died during the nitrht. His remains have been sent on to San Antonio, where the fireman has been also taken Rfor treatment. There was a rumor that the hed brakeman was Injured, but this has not been verified. A wrecking train was sent out immediately from El Paso with' Supt. Martin and Wrecking Master Borcherding, and remarkably fast time was made to the wreck which was reached about 11 o'clock. P; ur empty box cars followed the engine and were broken up. Those three big Schenectadies have now taken their turn over, and each has killed her man. They were brought from the Schenectady locomo tive works soms three years ago to run on the Sunset Limited. But while being "limbered up" on the freights and passenger runs they "exhibited traits of character'' that made tbe company go 6low about trying them on the Sunset flyers. Engine 813 while pulling the pay train west bound jump ped the traek and turned over near Tabor, killing Engineer Luff and Fire man Burr. Then one month later, 814 while p-illing the east bound regular passenger near Malone turned over and killed her Engineer Thompson. These accidents, so near together and so nearly related in character, caused a deal of surmise and speculation. The engines and tbeir trucks are equipped with brakes a new feature for this country, and a supposition was in some quarters that when the brakes were applied to these truck wheels, it caused a tendency to buckle and camp on the rail making it easy for the engine to ride off the pivot and force thetrucks off the track. Others held that tbe machines were improperly equalized, and there was too little weigbt on the trucks. Tbe first theory was never proved satisfactorily, al though the brakes wern removed as a precaution against further trouble. The latter theory was sufficiently well thourbt of to warrant serious attention, and the local management had the en gines re-equal izd; that is, the equaliz ing levers so readjusted as to throw more of the weigbt of the engines onto tbe trucks. Then all went well, and the big machines have even been given passengers runs without unfavorable results, until lat evening. It is a very rougn country around Langtry, and the condition of the track may have caused the accident rather than any fault of the engine. However, this will be brought out in the investigation. In the meantime public sympathy goes nut to the poor widow and orphans, and lends additional emphasis to the dangers that beset the life of a railway operative. Cost of a Naval Battle. A battle between the American battleship Indiana and the Spanish ba'tlesblp Pelayo would wipe off the face of tbe eartb property wortn o,- 973 000. All this in an hour. Each ship cost ths same. The destruction of either would mean a loss of 83,670, 000 It is probable that the other wuld be damaged half its value or SI, 83o.000. Those two incidents of naval engagement would mean a total des- truct on ol o,ouo,uuu. n,acn oi tne Dig guns would be discharged twenty times. That is the average number. Etch time the 16 big rifles of the In diana were discharged it would cost the government $12,000. In the course of 60 minutes they would belch forth 8240,000 wo to of shot ano; shelj. Four of her guns cost 8600 each every time they were dischargea: lour oi tnem $1 ,000 each ; e' gh t of them 8700 each . Besides tnege sne carries two au- Mng guns. Their capacity Is 1,200 shots a minute. To operate each gun $300 worth of cartridges must be pro vided each minute. It is not probable that they would be fired for more than fifteen minute, out even tnat D-iet time would mean an expense ef 84.5.00 for each gun, or 88,000 for both That would bring the total expense of an hour's engagement up to 8246,000 or $4,150 a minute, or a little more than $69 a second. To operate the Pelayo would cost a trifle of $30,000 lefs than this total. She carries sevente n big guns. A single discharge of all of them wruld cost $10,000. One of her big guns cost $650 to shoot; twelve of them 8500 each; two of tnem uu eacb; two qf them $900 each, Besides these she carries four Gatling guns of the fa re capacity as those of the Indiana, and operated at the same cost. To fire them fifteen minutes would cost 818.000. The to al cost of the engagement to the Pelayo would be 8219,000 an average of 83,650 a minute, or $60 a second, with a few pennies to f pare. Therefore, supposing that one ship would be wholly wrecked and the oth er badly disahled, the total co-it of this one bat'le between our govemme-t and that of Spa'n, count n? $460 000 worth of ammunition, wou'd be dan gerously near $6,000,000. If the In diana were destroyed the fight would cost the United Ste $3 919.000. If the were on'y disabled we would es cape with a loss of $2,084,000 Tbe destruction of the P-1 yo would mean a loss to Spain of $3,889 000. If she were only disabled the expanse to the Spaniards would be $2,054,000. Ex. II. a. Koss ana w. r'. K bio son sue S. L.

Mackay, the California millionaire, is building at Greenwood Cemetery the most costly and remark able mausoleum in America. The cost has bef n estimated at $400,- 000. The mausoleum w 11 be heated and lighted by electricity. It will have tbe finest mosaics and art works. A jewel altar will be erected, at which a requiem mass will be sung every day. This magnificence is in memory of John W, Mackay, Jr., the son who was accidentally killed in Paris two or three year- ago. It is said that never before has elec tric heat and light been introduced in tr a mausoleum the resting plaoe of the dead. But in Brooklyn the per mit has been granted by the depart ment of public buildings, lighting and supplies, for the stringing of wires to supply tbe electric current. '2'ha Mackay mausoleum has been in process of building for abaut nine months, and although the work on it has been pushed, it is not expected that it will be completed much within a year. The tomb will ba it is said, the most artistic known. It is In the form of a maltese ' cross, the material being granite. Surmounting it will be a granite cress. The height of the structure is 40 feet 8 inches and its ground dimensions 35 feet 8 inches on each side. The dome and floor are of moea'c from Venice. Many kinds of marble are used in the interior work. There will be four heroic bra. za groups by a Munich ar tist for the four wings. The doors will be -f bronza and the windows of plsin Munich glass. It is stated tnat one or tne greatest feats of modern stone handling was ac complished when cbe enormous granite block for tbe roof piece was raised and set In place. The gisantio piece of granite is 20 feet 6 ir ches square and weighs upward of 50 tons. The stone covers the entire main roof. Nothing as large as this was ever attempted in mausoleum building. Abnormal Demand tor Copper. "Copper is in greater demand today, " said L. N. Trimble of New York at the miners' bureau in Denver, ' 'than it has ever b -en. There is not in the country a sixty days' supply of all kinds of copper, and of that particular quality used for electrical engineering 1 do not tniot mere is a tnirty days supply. Copper cannot be bought to day or ninety da s' delivery for less than izi cents a pound, and as tbe demacd is constantly increasing the price will undoubtedly go still high er. "The great danger to the copper in dustry from tbii condition of affairs Is that the price will go so high be fore new sources of.aupp y are'discover ed and opened up that a substitute will oe discovered, in which event the vested interests in copper mines and manufacturicg enterprises ill be in danger of serious lo a. As a result there is a feverii-h anxiety on the part of all who are int?re.:ted in copper n any form to find new copper de posits. 'Phelps, Donee & Co., who prac- ticil'y control the copper trade of the country, have an agent in the field all te time lo- king up alleged copper finds, n ith a view to the opening of the pioperties in case they re promising Tbe reports received from Colorado are extremn'y flatterirg, and if the d sooveries in Paradox valley, in tbe La Sa: mountains and in Una weep oanyon are naif that ha; been report ed, they will be the scenes of wonder ful act:V.ty during the coming sea son t' Moie Santa Fe Engines Bside the 12 Player t mines to be built in tbe Topeka shops this year, thre will be five others put in service beid-s.
