First you’re born—and I’ll be bound you
Find a dozen strangers round you.
•‘Hello !** cries the new-born baby,
“.Where’s my parents? which may they be?’*
Awkward silence—no reply—
Puzzled baby wonders why.
Father rises, bows politely—
Mother smiles (but not too brightly)—
Doctor mumbles like a dumb thing—
Nurse is busy mixing something.

Some young lady is selected —
Poor, perhaps, but well connected,
Whom you hail (for love is blind)
As the queen of fairy kind.
Though she's plain—perhaps unsightly,
Makes her face up-laces tightly,
In her form your fancy traces
All the gifts of all the graces.
Rivals none the maiden woo.
So you take her and she takes you!
Ten years later—time progresses—
Sours your temper—thins your tresses;
Fancy, then, her chain relaxes,
Rates are facts and so are taxes.
Fairy queen's no longer young—
Fairy queen has got a tongue.
Twins have probably intruded—
Quite unbidden—just as you did—
They’re a source of care and trouble—
Just as you were—only double.

prettily draped archway one’s eye was
caught by a column done in “Grecian

department was trimmed in Pete’s
matchless style with festoons and banks
of artificial flowers, ribbons and portiere

It Frocipitatds a Hot Fight in
Republicans Resist an Effort to Make
Failure to Vote an Offense
Punishable by Fine.
Washington, April 13.—Democratic
managers in the house decided to take
heroic measures to force the repub
licans to participate in the proceedings.
The committee on rules, consisting of
Speaker Crisp, Messrs. Outhwaite and
Catchings (dem.) and Messrs. Reed
and Burrows (rep.) held a meeting
just before the* house convened and
formulated a rule to crush filibuster
ing, making the penalty of failure to
vote punishable by a fine. The repub
licans determined to contest every inch
of the ground, and a fierce parliamen
tary fight was immediately precipi
tated. Speaker Crisp, however, swept
aside all preliminaries, and forced the
fight on the main issue. •
The Hattie Begins.
As soon as the journal had been read
he recognized Mr. Catchings, from the
committee on rules, to present the re
Mr. Burrows attempted to raise the
point of order that no quorum was
present, but the speaker held
that the journal having been ap
proved the point of order could not
be made save on a vote upon some
pending question. Mr. Burrows then
tried a flank movement with an appeal
from the decision of the chair, and the
speaker declared that he could not take
Mr. Catchings off the floor for that pur
Mr. Reed came forward at this junc
ture and manifested a disposition to
hold a joint debate with the chair, but
the speaker declined the invitation and
directed the clerk to read the report
The Objectionable Resolution.
The resolution reported is as follows:
“Rescind clause of rule VIIL, and Insert in
lieu thereof: ‘Every member shall be present
in the hall of the bouse during its sittings un
less excused or necessarily prevented, and
shall vote on each question put unless he has a
direct personal or pecuniary Interest In the
events of such question. Whenever in pursuance
of section 6, article 1, of the constitution
of the United States, the house of representa
tives. at the request of one-fifth of the members
present, shall order the yeas and nays of tla
members on any question to be entered upon
its journal, and upon a call of the roll
of its members for that purpose a quo
rum thereof shall fail to vote, each mem
ber within the hall of the house who'
shall fail to respond when his name is called,
unless he has a direct personal and pecuniary
interest In the event of such questiotf, and each
member who shall be absent iVom the hall of
the house when his name is called, un
less he has been excused or Is neces
sarily prevented from being present, shall
be fined the sum of (10 and the speaker shall
cause an entry of such fine to be made against
such members on the journal of the house and
the same shall be collected and paid Into the
treasury of tqe United States.”
Keed and Crisp leek Horns.
Mr. Reed vainly attempted to inter
rupt the reading by appeals for recog
nition on a point of order, but the
speaker, with averted head, refused to
listen to him, and Mr. Reed, finding
his efforts futile, sank down in his
Mr. Reed was again on his feet when
the reading was completed, but the
Speaker recognized Mr. Catchings to
demand the previous question. Then
he turned to Mr. Reed, who said he de
sired to raise a point of order.
“Does the chair recognize me?” asked
Mr. Reed.
“T he chair will hear the gentleman,”
replied the speaker.
“1 am to understand, then, that the
chair recognizes me to make a point of

tleman from Mississippi to demand the
pi evious question, and pending that he
will hear the gentleman,” retorted the
This did not suit Mr. Keed’s purpose,
however, lie wanted a definite asser
tion from the speaker that he was recog
nized in his own right. While indulging
in some delicate fencing with the speak
er on this point, the speaker seem
ingly lost patience, and with a bang of
the gavel stated the question to be on
the demand for the previous question.
Mr. Keed was left standing in the aisle
while the speaker took the rising vote.
The republicans declined to vote and
when the speaker announced the re
sult. 99-0, Mr. Burrows made the point
of no quorum.
Left Without s Quorum.
The yeas and nays were demanded.
I£he republicans were determined to
Jbftqe the democrats to produce a quo
rum Jutge of the parliamentary
progressrbdking to the adoption of
the rule, and when the roll was called
declined to vote. Eleven of the demo
crats refused to give the proposed rule
their approval, and voted against the
demand, of the previous question.
These eleven were as follows:
‘Ciiiuaey, Delaware; Coombs. Cummings. New
Ybrk; Geary. California; Geisenbainer, New
Jersey; Kilgore, Texas; Maguire. California;
McAleer, Pennsylvania; Paymer, Kentucky;
RySn. New York; Warner, New York.
The populists voted with the demo
crats in favor of the demand.
The announcement of the vote, 141 —
11, showed that the democrats were
thirty-seven short of a quorum.
On motion of Mr. Catchings a call of
the huu-e was ordered.

Coxsy’s Followers I'lod Their Weary Way
Over the Mountains.
Chalk Hill, Pa.. April 13.— Coxey’s
motley band of commonwealers passed
the night on the oak floors of an
ancient colonial mansion which stands
back from the road on a bare, wind
swept knoll. The building has
long been vacant The army
marched out of Uniontown Wednesday
morning in a snowstorm. The na
tional pike, after it leaves Uniontown,
runs directly up the western side of the
mountains. In places it is both steep
and rocky, and had it not been for the
timely assistance of the cowboy com
monwealers with their lariats the
commissary wagons would never
huve reached the summit As the
army toiled upward the rain
changed to heavy, wet snow,
which came down slowly, settled upon
the clothing of the marchers and wet
them to the skim Before reaching thtf
top of the ridge the snow on the hills
was over 1 foot deep, and both men and
teams found the greatest difficulty in
toiling through it The men bravely
kept in line, however, reaching this
place late in the afternoon without
notable incident.
Chalk Hill, Pa., April 13. The
army of the commonweal had not re
gained its accustomed sprightliness
when the bugle was sounded in the old
colonial stage house at 6:30 a. m.
Although 9 o’clock a. m. was the
hour set for the march to be
resumed the men were slow to
move, not being sufficiently in
harmony with the movement to con
sider with cheerfulness the leaving of
such warm and comfortable quarters
for a dozen-miles’ tramp through the
snow. The noon stop was at Somer
Omaha, Neb., April 13. Kelley’s
army of industrials has captured a
Union Pacific train at Evanston, Wya,
and is now riding east.
The engineer and fireman obeyed
orders as issued by Gem Kelly, the
commandant, as they had instructions
to do from Superintendent Bancroft of
the Mountain division, should one of
the trains in his division be captured
by the industrial legion. The capture
was totally unexpected, although Su
perintendent Bancroft had predicted
that such a movement would very like
ly take place on the part of Gen. Kelly
and his henchmen.
Vawdalia, 11L, April IS.—Gem Frye
is in this city making preparations for
his industrial which he expects
will reach here Friday afternoon. The
army is now in camp just at the edge
of Greenville, 18 miles west of here.
Tba Engagement Between Young Uould
and MUi Tyler Broken.
New York, April 13. —Howard Gould
and Miss Odette Tyler, the actress,
whose engagement was formally an
nounced on March 27, are not to be
married after all. Mr. Gould himself
made public the fact that the engage
ment had been annulled, with the con
sent of both parties. This sud
den conclusion of the romance of
multi-millionaire Howard Gould and
the pretty comedienne of the Frohman
company was not altogether unex
pected after it became known that
Gould’s brothers, George and Edwin,
and his sisters were irrevocably op
posed to the alliance. As that opposi
tion woeld result in Howard sac
rificing one-half of his heritage
under the terms of his father’s
will, which specified that none of
his children should marry without
the consent of the majority except at
the cost of such a sacrifice, it was be
lieved from the outset that the match
would never be consummated. The
fact that Miss Tyler herself broke it off
is taken not only as an evidence of her
natural independence,but of the willful
spirit which has controlled all of her
actions since her earliest girlhood.
It is stated that w powerful reason
which operated upon Miss Tyler's mind
' and induced her to throw her million
aire fiance over was the action of some
body unknown in sending a detective
to Savannah, Ua., her birthplace, to
investigate her early life. When How
ard Gould heard this he was very
angry, and is said to have pressed Miss
Tyler to marry him at once. But Miss
Tyler refused to listen to the appeal of
her ardent young lover and finally no
tified him that their engagement was
Whatever else may be said of Miss
Tyler hereafter she will always he
known as p woman who refused to
marry one the richest young men in
the world. It is her purpose to resume
her career on the stage at the beginning
pf next, season, and it goes without say
ing that her recent entanglement will
not detract from her value as a foot
light attraction.

Sailing Graft Driven from Shore by
the Atlantic Gale.
At Least Twenty-Five Lives Known to
Have Been Lost in the Furious
Storm on the Coast.
New Yobk, April 18.—The storm
which began to level things along the
Atlantic coast Tuesday night is
gradually losing its cyclonic nature,
although the wind is still sweeping
down the coast with considerable
force. In this city and on the direct
coast line the fury of the storm was
spent dawn, but in the wake
of the cyclone, which is slowly
passing out to sea, the weather
continues sufficiently rough to
cause well-founded apprehension for
any unfortunate vessels which may be
in its track. It will be days before the
full extent of the loss of life and prop
erty can be determined. Perhaps the
fate of some of the smaller craft,
which were off the coast during the
height of the gale, will never be known.
Certain it is, from the meager number
of arrivals at this port since the storm
began, that a fleet of sailing craft
has been driven out to sea or forced to
fly before the tempest under bare
poles and to be tossed about at the
mercy of the waves. All that is known
now is that two more vessels, in addi
tion to the two which were wrecked
Wednesday, have been reported cast
up on the coast, and that more lives
have probably been crushed out during
the night.
Stories of Wreck and Disaster.
There is scarcely a point on the Staten
Island, New Jersey and Long Island
coasts but sends its story of damage by
the gale. Railroad washouts, un
dermined buildings, ruined bath
ing pavilions, demolished piers,
wrecked sailing craft, uprooted trees
and prostrate telegraph poles are some
of the features of the tale of devasta
tion which is told after the subsidence
of the fiercest storm known in this vi
cinity for years.
Twenty-Five Victims.
Reports from places on the Long
Island coast say that eight persons who
were at sea in three yachts are miss
ing and are believed to be lost. This
increases the Dumber of victims lrom
the storm to more than twenty-'
Three men who sailed in t! yacht

Bad for the Farmers.
The meadows between Jersey City and
Hoboken and Newark are several
inches under water and nothing is
visible except telephone and tele

extremely severe pain in the lower part of
the chest. The feeling was as if a ton
f weight was laid
on u spot the size
of my hand. Dur
ing the attacks, the
perspiration would
stand iu drops ou
my face, and it was
agony for me to
make sufficient
effort even to wbis

suddenly, at any
hour of the day or
night, lasting from
thirty minutes to
half a day, leaving as suddenly; but, for
several days after, i was quite pros
trated and sore. Sometimes the attacks
were almost daily, then less frequent. After
about four years of this suffering, 1 was
taken down with t ilious typhoid fever, and
when I began to recover, I had the worst
attack of my old trouble I ever experienced.
At the first of tlic fever, my mother gave
me Ayer’s Pills, ray doctor recommending
them as being better than anything he
could prepare. I continued taking-these
Pills, and so great was tlie benefit derived
that during nearly thirty years I have had
but one attack of my former trouble, which

Wivei gnd Daughters of the Strikers
lake a Hand The Chicago
Lockout is a Failure.
Ueioxtoww, Pa., April 18.—A vicious
raid was made by women late Wednes
day afternoon at the McClure Coke,
company’s Lemont No. 1 works. They
had smarted this plant without the pro
tection of armed deputies, and
had a good many men drawing coke.
The strikers had nearly ail gone
with the mob that had the riot at
Youngstown and no interference with
the resumption of work at Lemont was
made by the few strikers left at the
plant But the strikers’ wives could
not stand the sight of the men work
ing. They formed into a mob and
charged on the cokers in a body,
screaming and brandishing clubs
and pokera They pelted the work
men with stones and drove them
away from the ovena The super
intendent had to draw his men up in a
line and repnlse the women to keep
them from taking entire posses
sion of the plant During the
melee. Dr. Cole, the veterinary surgeon
for this company, was struck on the
head with a stone and badly hurt The
raid caused a cessation of work for the
day, but the plant has resumed under
armed guards and has not been dis
turbed so far.
Deputies Show Fight.
Coke ells ville. Pa, April IS.— A
mob of 500 strikers assembled at Dun
bar before daylight with the avowed
intention of forcing the workmen out
at the llill Farm works, but the show
of force made by the deputies fright
ened tlie strikers off and they left
for reinforcements, moving in the
direction of Mount Braddock. ’lt waa
given out by some of the strikers that
they would return to Hill Farm and at

soon am they could augment their force

Loss of Life Hare to Ketult.
In thia section there are seven plants
in full operation employing nearly 3,000
workmen Each plant is guarded by
from twenty-five to fifty deputies, and
any attempt at interference will result
in loss of life. The superintendents
ha e instructed the deputies to shoot to
kill. In the opinion of Sheriff Wilhelm
the strike has just begun. He says he
finds the men more determined and
fearless than when blood was being
shed last week and he fears for the re
In the opinion of the authorities the
situation is as critical as before the
killing of Paddock at the Davidson
works. The action of the Scottdaie
convention in condemning riot and ad
vising a peaceable policy the operators
declare was only a farce and a blind to
put them off their guard, and if the
actions of the rioters on Wednesday
can be taken as an indication of their
methods the next few days will see the
coke region the scene of unbounded dis
order syitl bloodshed.
Chicago Lockout a Foliar*.
Chicago, April 13. —The indications
are that the number of men to be

be parading the streets and lotMtring.
about labar headquarters, but none of
this vast army of locked-out workmen
is in evidence. Labor leaders say the
lockout is a complete failure. They
say that of the 4,000 men
whom contractors claim to have
locked out the great majority
consists of men who have been on
strike for several weeks. At the head
quarters of the building trade council
there was no unusual appearance. The
number of idle men about the premises
was not increased and the officers
claimed to have no reports as to un ion
men being locked out.

tional miners’ convention decided that
the wage scale and conditions adopted

basis. It means an increase of from
twenty to twenty-five cents per ton of
wages now paid in Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Indiana and Illinois. The date of the
annual convention was changed from
the second Tuesday in April to the sec
ond Tuesday in February.
