The firm controlled many largo distilleries, and was also interested in the manufacture of yeast. The partnership ar ticles provided Unit on the denth of. either purtner the business should bo continued for three years and as long as possible. On Maximilian's (Tenth his and brother wero appointed his executors. Jn their complaint lijs children Hint Charles immediately control of the entire business nnd induced their mother, who was inexperienced, to sign certain papers transferring- all her interest to him. In the fall of 1807, it is alleged, Churlcs obtained control of the eastern business. He died on December 10, 1807, and his executors aro still conducting the business and are the chief defendants in the present action. The defendants in their answer assert that .the -agreements signed ,by Mrs. Flcischmann were valid and that she, has received her share of tho property.. They place the original interest of Maximilian Fleibchniann nt $1,252,550. IT F BT. Tho Last Addition by Science to Popular Use. BRILLIANCY AND SAFETY. A Revelation in Economical Illumination for Homes, Hotels and All Classes of Buildings. Acetylene, the new artificial light, three ears ago known only to Scientists, is today coming so rapidly into popular use that it promises to replace all the older means of lighting. The new light has been christened "Artificial Sunlight, as by its rays coloia can be distinguished as by day and in soft, ness, steadiness and all qualities of light the resemblance is most marked. ' The great economy, and convenience ju producing the new llluminant, and the beauty und excellence ot the light itself explain in a measure its marvelous growth hi popularity. Calcium Carbide, the material from which eacli individual user produces his own Acetylene, is a solid substance, bard as granite and is ordinarily crushed, like broken stone, to pieces about the size of eggs. This material is compact, clean, convenient and even safer to handle than coal. Its marvelous oliinity for water makes it of value and the moment it comes in contact with water the generation of Acetylene begins. Carbide, as ft is generally called, is usually packed, in air and water tight drums, holding one hundred pounds of tin's material, each. Enough Acetylene gas can be made to light a large room for several hours by merely throwing a piece of carbide the size of one s thumb into a tumbler of water. In that case, however, the gas is not controlled the gas is all made in a few moments and lost. Machines called generators arc made, which cause the Carbide and water to be brought together just in proportion as the gas is needed for lighting. Most of these, machines are simply constructed and they do this automatically. If t ne ngnt from one burner is needed, then the machine causes just enough gas to be made to supply one burner. If ten burners arc lighted, then the same machine will deliver enough gas to supply ten burners. The very simplicity of this principle lias attracted the attention and inventive genius of hundreds of scientists and mechanics; thus, in some instances, unreliable and unsafe Acetylene generators have been produced. The good and reliable machines are many, however, and most of such arc constructed under the diiection'of com-latent mechanical engineers and Bold by responsible concerns. t I M "M I Imagine receiving one's supply of artificial hglit. as a sofid. one hundred pounds at a time in a little drum from the freight 'station. When one realizes that each package will make as much light as 25,000 candles for one hour, more light than the ordinary size family will use in three months, and such a package will cost about $4.00, perhaps the explanation of the increasing popularity is found. The cost of Carbide lias been steadily reduced notwithstanding the early impressions of the great expense in manufacture. Such large quantities are now being consumed, and such material reductions in price have actually been made, that users can expect that lighting with Acetylene will be ns in-, expensive as it has proved to be desirable in point of excellence and beauty. Acetylene solves the lighting problem wherever city gas and electric light is not available, by the simple process of the plant. These can be placed in any dwelling or building by an ordinary mechanic, can oe manipulated by any person of ordinary intelligence. They are practical, simple, safe, economical, and appeal to every owner or occupant of a building, every cnant or manufacturer, and every individual interested in the artificial light problem. He Knew. "Now, boys," said the Sunday schoolteacher, "our lesson to-day teaches us that if we are good while here on earth, when we die we will go to a place of everlasting hliss. Hut, suppose we are bad, then what becomes of us?" "We'll go to a place of everlasting blister," replied a small boy at the foot of the class. Yonkers Statesman. 1IAIIKET KEPOUT.

A Consrcssiunn "Who "Wns In the. Dark ns to Title and Colophon. A certain member of the house of representatives, nameless lieie forever more, met a newspaper correspondent in the lobby the other day and mysteriously invited him to his committee room. The correspondent cast a chew of tobacco out of his mouth in anticipation, and followed the statesman to the seclusion of the place designated. "Say," said the member, looking about carefully to see that only the two of them were present, "I want to ask you a question in confidence." "Oh," responded the correspondent in a tone of disappointment, "is that what you wanted?" "es; and if you can give me the information I am after you will do me a great favor." "All right," said the correspondent, recovering his wonted spirits, though the other kind were lacking, "what is it? Go ahead with your rat killiug." "Well," began the member in a manner reminding one of the preface to a book, "I had one of'tlie boys look over a speech I am going to make, just to see what lie thought of it and make a suggestion or two to improve it, if necessary, and he's got something into it that I'm not up to." "What is it?" asked the correspondent, as the member hesitated. "Well, I'm fairly well up on the Bible, and when I come across the sentence 'anywhere from Dan to Beershoba,' I know what it m4?.ns well enough, and also know about ! Dan and the other one. I had that in the speech, but he said it was a chestnut by this time, and it would sound more tony and abreast of the times and literary culture to change it from 'Title to Colophon,' and I told him 'all right,' but didn't let on. Now, you are a friend of mine, and I want to ask you about this. As I said, I'm up on the Bible, but I don't know the classical busness a little hit, and while I can kind of catch on to Title, I'd like to know who in thunder Colophon was. Do you know?" The correspondent explained, and the member saw to it that his cast-out. chew of tobacco was not wasted. N. Y. Sun. NOT THAT KIND OF A CAKE. It Looked SnirBcatlve of a Weddlns Out Warn Intended for a Different Purpose. An East end car was loaded down with shoppers, mostly women, for it was in the middle of the afternoon. Conversation was proceeding at a great rate. It was like a Sink tea or a session of the seeing circle. !ut all at once a hush fell over the fair chatterers. A negro lad entered, bearing in his arms an immense cake, three or four decks high, and frosted over from pit to dome, as they say of a theater. There was a profusion of flowers by way of decoration", and delicate traceries of gauzy lace completed the embellishments'. The cake was so largo that the negro could scarcely carry it. The cake, told the whole story of the wedding, the bridesmaids, the orange flowers, the flower girls and the banquet afterward. Every feminine heart in that street car was a-flutter as its owner gazed speechlessly upon the evidence of a wedding to he. Finally, when -the car stopped to let on another passenger and everything was very still, one lady took courage to ask the negro where the weddinpr was going to be. "Whut weddin'J" asked the ncero. his eves (.protruding. f "The wedding that cake is for." uis ain t no weddm cake. "No?" "No'm. Dis yeres er cake walk cake " There was a smile that reached irom one end of the car to the other, and very soon conversation was resumed as Scimitar. ijilOO Itewnrrt ?100.

A lady living in the Eighteenth ward answered a knock at her door the other morning to find a poorly-dressed woman, greatly in need of help. Her tale excited sympathy in the kind lady's heart. When the poor woman left she carried a big bundle of clothes and a sack containing many of the necessaries of life. The next morning there appeared at the same door a seven-year-old urchin of ruddy countenance, who somewhat shocked the ladv of the linni with !,;?.
