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

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.

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

The Woman.s Exchange il New York
Has Become Cramped for Want of Room.
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
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.

While the fair damsels of England are

Recent Styles ia Hair.
"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
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
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.

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
