MILWAUKEE, Sept. 5.-An evening pa per states that the authorized announce ment of the marriage of Miss Gertrude Potter, daughter of the Chicago million aire iron man, to F. L. E. E. Rust, son of the Eau Claire lumberman of that name, has just been made here. The pair, it is claimed, were married on the quiet at (iez.eva lake, in June last. and left for Europe soon afterwards, where they are now traveling and spending their honey moon. The parents of both contracting parties are said to be yet ignorant of the union and had planned to formally cele brate the event this fall. Miss Potter has gained no little notoriety on account of an early love affair with a Chicago newsboy, which was declared ofl by I er parents. Young Rust has been a student at Beloit colege, and is about twenty ears old. The parents of the young are expected to reach Chicago to riut and until their arrival it is impos sible to verity the story of the clandestinem s marriage. A Deoble Marder. NASHVILLE, Sept. 5.-A horrble story of a double murder has reached here from Livingston, Overton county, about fifty miles from the railroad. Sunday night the family of William Smith went to church, leaving two girls, aged 17 and 19 In the house alone. About 9 o'clock a neighbor noticed an unusual light in the direction of Smith's dwelling. He ran over and found the house rapidly burning. He arrived just in time to see the bodies of the two girls lying on the floor in the center of a downstairs room. Their faces were covered with blood and their clothing disordered. So fierce were the flames that the bodies could not be removed. The girls had undoubt edly been murdered, after which the house was set on fire. The family was a very respectable one. PRISON CRUELTT. A Canadian Conviet Confined ia the Black Eole Hasf the Time. MONTREAL, Sept. 5.-An astounding revelation of cruelty at the St Vincent de Paul penitentiary came to light today when a dischargefI convict limped into a hotel in this city, and, taking off his dusty shoe, took from it a letter from James Ferry, now serving a seven years' sentence in that institution. Out of the four years he has served, this wretched convict has spent, he declares, no less than twenty-four months in the black hole. This punishment cell is a portion of the cellar of the penitentiary, and is so closely shut with iron doors that day light never reaches the cells in it as long as the convicts are there. Unfor tunately a prisoner put there is put on bread and water, being given one regular prison meal every ay. He sleeps on straw, and the guard who furnishes him with his scanty food is prohibited from speaking to him. It is perpetual night and unending silence for him. It is the hardest punishment that can be in flicted, and yet this unfortuate man has spent two whole years in this hole, be sides being horribly beaten and kicked. Old convicts claim that this ciase is only one of many, and the fact reciains that the man has been placed two years out of four in solitary confinemnent in a loath sonic cell (leiarred froco light. fri ti fresh air, and from the comlpunionship of The Chillan EmuIbrollo.

Few women in this city realize what a power for good is that establishment known as the Woman's exchange, which is the outgrowth of one kind hearted woman's single experience. It was while Mrs. William Choate was making a purchase in one of the shops twelve years ago that she became a chance lis tener to the conversation between a wo man who was trying to sell some articles of her own handiwork and the shop keeper. The difficulties to be overcome in making the sale and the small sum the woman received for her work gave Mrs. Choate the idea which resulted in the Woman's exchange, and beginning with thirty articles, the institution is now the means of helping thousands of women who could not otherwise have obtained at livelihood. Mrs. Choate is and has been its presi dent for the last twelve years, and it is through her earnest efforts, added to the natural growth of the institution, that it is maintained. The business is, in fact, stretching be yond the capacity of one house, and a plan is projected for either erecting a new builling or remodeling one or two I old houses better suited to the require ments of the exchange than its present I quarters. There is only one thing that stands in the way of this, but it is a very important item-money. If sufficient means could be had a plan - would be carried out which would make r every womauais heart proud, whether she s were a consigner at the exchange or a only a stranger paying a visit to the city Y This plan is to have a large business house devoted entirely to the enterprise of women. Any one who is at all ac quainted with the work going on at the n exchange knows how varied and how ~ numerous are the crafts and businesses ( of women. A good place in which things could be of shown would not only be of enormous benefit to those personally interested. It but it would be a great convenience to those who buy. _ There seems to be such a strong preju dice against schemes projected by wo men that it is uphill work to put them into operation, but already a certain amount of money has been subscribed for the new building. That it is neces sary to have a good business location goes without saying. It would be called the Business House for Women. Inge nuity is one of the strong points of wo men. and more and more is this faculty being developed. The Woman's exchange more than all other organizations is made cognizant of this through the many patented arti cles brought to it. There is but little space to exhibit these, and less money to help the inventors to place their arti cles on the market. The nucleus of a fund has recently been started for this purpose. " Surprise has been expressed that there has been no endowment made to the exchange, but Dr. Agnew once offered encouragement to its founder by saying that every institution, good as it might be, had to wait a certain length of time for its endowments and bequests. Peo ple had to learn to feel confidence in it, and he spoke from experience with the Eye and Ear hospital, which waited a dozen years before its usefulness was recognized. A place which does not depend upon the erection of a new building for the exchange is the establishment of lunch rooms for men and women all over the city under its auspices. A certain sim plicity would be followed in all the de tails, but one of the chief characteristics of the new establishments would be the old fashioned dishes which were so doted upon by our fathers and their fathers, but which receive small recognition in the new fashioned cuisine. The lunchroom at the exchange is even now one of its most remunerative departments, and its capacity for accom modating guests is very limited. Chicken pie and waffles are the two dishes in greatest demand, members of some well known families making their appearance there at least once a week to indulge in these delicacies. Those who are obliged to depend upon restaurants for their midday meal, especially business wom en, would hail with delight the new pro ject of the Woman's exchange, and the speedy establishment of the lunchrooms is earnestly looked for.-New York Sun. A Woman Dulf10igter. While the fair damsels of England are endeavoring to oust men from every po sition, which until now they alone have occupied, their Gallic sisters show them selves by no means backward in doing the same thing. The progressive Eng lish girl, disdaining to link her fate with that of man. enters college and becomes a senior wrangler or an authority on the plioceie period. If her tastes are still more exalted she is a disciple of Buddha, and reverently believes in the metemp eychosis. perhaps she may have a lk. ing for athletics, and follows the hounds over many a well plowed field, is incom parable at a five barred gate, and is reg 1 ularly in at the death to receive poor Reynard's brush as the guerdon of her exertion.

"What a lovely curly bang your little girl has?" said a young mother, whose own child's hair was of the most uncom promising straightness and who stopped in the street to admire, half enviously, the golden aureole of fluffy hair that framed in the rosy face of her friend's small daughter in the most becoming manner. "Yes," said the fond parent I complacently. "isn't it pretty? It came from Paris sewed into her little cap." "You do not mean to say it is false!" exclaimed the other, quite horrified. "Why. yes," she answered, "it looks pretty, and what harm is it?" Nevertheless the incongruity between an innocent child and false hair is obvi ous. The iatest absurdity in this line is a bathing cap (also Parisian), from which peeps a fringe of naturally curly hair that clings in the most becoming rings. however wet; but it would be awkward to lose such a cap, and it be hooves the wearer to fasten it very se curely. This combination of outdoor headgear and becoming tresses seems to be popu lar this year, for one enterprising mil liner has introduced hair which she matches in color to order in various ways with her concoctions. One hat, which she calls a "wind hat," has soft, short, wavy locks attached which might defy Doreas to render unbecoming, and a pretty little bonnet has a crown of golden plaits that is warranted never to become disarranged. But here is a verdict fromn a rather particular man of the world, which doubtless expresses the views of many: "There is something positively obnox ious to me about false hair," he affirms. "I had rather see a woman paint, and that is bail enough-ten times over-but to know that that soft, curly stuff may come from some 'dear dead woman,' as Browning says, absolutely makes one shudder."-New York Tribune. One Way of Spending Summer. There is a certain back yard up town on the went side where three pretty girls are having more fun these summer evenings than half of their friends can I boast of at the summer resorts. It is just an ordinary back yard, with a nar- I row flower bed bordering the fence and a big grass plot, but it boastsof one good sized poplar tree, and the moonbeams sifting through its silvery leaves send elfin lights all over the pretty faces that happen to be beneath. The girls have fastened twohammocks from the tree to the fence, and in these two of them swing away the summer evenings, while the third reclines in a s willow rocker. Then there are camp stools and a couple of big easy chairs, which are occupied nightly by the will- s lug slaves of th* two. They swing the hamnmoks, flutter the fans, hold ices and tell stories to the falr listeners. The houses faving a view of this arcadia are closed for the summer, so that the merry laughter and cooling drinks gurgle unin terruptedly. The breath of the sweet peas and helio trope in their narrow beds floats up to the whispering poplar tree, and through the tangle of dancing leaves the moon- 4 beams fall upon the sparkling eyes of the pretty girls and make them ten thousand times more fascinating than their sisters at the country or seashore. The men think so, at any rate, but per haps it is the novelty of the paradise in this hot and dusty city where they have been left to toil away the summer days. Anyway, the girls are having a good tiue, and probably the harvest moon will shine down upon three hands that will each own one ring more than they might have secured had their owners left their winter beaux to brave it out alone in town throughout the summer. -New York Advertiser. Slipper Sanding. Probably there i3 no beach on the At lantic where you will see prettier toilets than here. The girls are either heiresses or very reckless, for day after day they appear in the sand in white silk dresses, beautifully made, with white chiffon sunshades. white hats, white kid gloves and suede sliplers. Pretty is no name for thetm. they are irresistible. By the way of variety they wear white mull and white organdy, cut low in the neck, with their snowy armsgleamning through sleeves, and then they are angelic, and a " fellow can no more help making love to e them than the seadogs can help dancing - with the mermaids in the ocean mincuet. All these white girls are good walk w ers, and with them, no doubt, originated the slipper sanding practice.
