"Tho woman who can't be trusted whilo her husband is away from homo, deserves to bo burned to death," said Robort Rosp, a stovedore, living at 1)1 Bedford street, in the Jefferson Market Police court yesterday. In returning from work Thursday night Ross was astounded to find that his wifo was absent, and that she had neglected to prepare Nany supper for him. Cold, hungry and angry, ho set out to look for her. Ross entered a saloon at Grove and Bleecker streets to blunt his feelings. While he was drink ing the sound of muffled laughter from an adjoining room reached his cars. Ono of the voices seemed Btrange ly familiar, and an investigation proved its owner to bo tho object of his Bearch. Tho scene that followed was lively. Two men dodged through the family entrance as though fired from a gun, and the woman began sobbing hysteric ally. The combined efforts of tho pro prietor and bartender of tho Baloon were requirod to protect Mrs. Ross from bod ily harm. After a simulation of peace liad b(ten restdred, Ross and his wifo started for home. Upon arriving at his idwn rooms his anger again broke out and ho made his wifo disrobe. In spite of her tearful protests he took her new gown, and pretty skirts and deliberately stuffed them into tho stove. While they wero burning ho began unpacking her trunk for more fuel. Tho noise made by Ross in his work attracted the attention of a neighbor, who summoned a policeman. The officer found Mrs. Ross' garments heaped up on tho floor and Ross pouring keroseno over them. Ross said he intended to ignite the clothing, lock his wife in and leave her to her fate. The officer placed Ross under arrest. Tho prisoner was held.

The building was an old brick veneered structure, fivo stories high, on Michigan street. It was built nt1883, and was for a long timoJtho only decent hotel in tho city.

One Poisons All Kinds of Animal .Life nnd tho Other Petrifies. Clarksville, Tenn., Jan. 14. Two very strange bodies of water lio in Lau derdale county Dead lake and Stone lake. Almost miraculous stories aro told about them. Tho truth of tho fol lowing is vouched for by County Court Clerk Joo H. WardlaW, of Ripley, and Captain Jack Haynes, of Lauderaalo: Dead lake is one mile in length and an average of one-half mile in width. No fish or any kind of water animal can live in it, and any creature drinking out of it is poisoned. Tho waters aro as transparent as glass, and tho lako is in deed a thing of oeauty, but tho people living in the neighborhood will not visit it. Not a great distance away is what is called Stono lako, also a lovely sheet of water deriving its namo from tho fact that everything that falls or is thrown in it petrifies It is one of tho traditions of tho county that years ago an old slave fishing on a log over its waters bo came stono, and the stone log ho sat on was a fallen hickory tree. It is stated that numerous offers have been mad'o to the parties owning thb lands on whibh theso lakes are situated to buy them, but they will not sell. A strong effort mil bo made to secure Borne relics from them to be placed on exhibition at the Chicago fair. THE GERMAN WORKING CLASSES. Horr Xilebknecht, In tho Reichstag, Asks as to Their Condition. Berlin, Jan. 14. In the reiohstag Herr Liebknecht, ono of tho leaders of tho Social-Democrats, questioned tho government regarding tho condition of tho working classes in Germany. Dr. Von Betticher, secretary of the imperial homo office and represeatative of the chancellor, in reply declaredthat nothing contained in tho communica tions received by tho homo office from tho various states of tho empire showed that unusual distress was prevalent among tho German working people. The meeting of unemployed working men that had been held and nro still being held at the principal centers wero for tho most part political in their char acter, and had no connection with the labor question. Referring to tho un successful strike of tho miners in tho Saar district, Dr. "Von Boettichor charged the movement as a purely friv olous one. He concluded his remarks by declaring that under no circum stance would tho government brook vio lation of tho law or resistance to its au thority. LAKE DRAINED INSTANTLY. Strnnge Natural Phenomenon, tho Result of nn Eurtuqunhe. Duranqo, Mox., Jan. 14. Tho over land mail courier, who has just arrived here from Mazatlan, brings news of the disappearance of Lagunda Madre or Mother lake, ono of the most beautiful sheets of water in the stato of Sinaloa. Tho lako was about thirty miles long and twelve wide. It was situated at the foot of the Sierra Madre mountains. A few days ago there was a series of slight earthquake shocks felt in that section. It was during ono of tho dis turbances that thb natives wero sudden ly startled to see the water in the lake disannear as though tho bottom had fallen out. Thousands of pounds of fish wero lert stranded on tne bed or tno lake. Tho sudden disappearance of the water was caused by a largo crevice which is supposed to have been caused by tho earthquake. The water evident ly found an outlot iuto the ocean through an underground passage. Tho flow from the springs which fed the lako now passes into this new outlet. MAUNA LOA'S CELEBRATION. Columbian Year Must and Slinll Bo Ob served. San Francisco, Jan. 14.

Tho Panso In Bushiest) Incident to the Holidays Seems to Last Longer Thii Year Than UmihI, but Severe "NVcnthei Hns Given n Powerful Stimulus to Trade in Some Lines of Goodx, New York, Jan. 14. R. G. Dun & Company's weekly review of trade says; Tho pause in business incident to tire holidaj's seems to last longer this year than usual, but severe weather has given a powerful stimulus to trade in heavy boots and shoes and woolens, and preparations for the spring business are going on actively and with tho utmost confidence. In spito of reports that more gold will go abroad, and in spito of uncertainties' regarding legislation on tho money question, the business world seems in clined to believe that there will be no Berlous financial embarrassment, espe cially aa tho average of commercial in- debtedness is remarkably low, and fail ures have been comparatively unim portant. No interruption of industrial activity is seen, though it is somewhat more depressed; but in other important branches a distinct improvement is no ticed in the preparation for spring trade. At Boston factories aTO all busy and jobbers' stocks reported light. Cotton nnd woolen mills are fully employed with the recent advance in woolens maintatned and clothing more active. Sales of wool were 8,513.200 pounds, and about 5,000,000 pounds wero de stroyed by fire, making territory wool stronger. Iron is weak at Philadelphia and scarcity of cars affects the coal trade, Uut better collections ate seen in boots and shoes, the dress goods works aro fully and knit goods fairly occupied, trade in meats are largo, in tobacco well maintained, in chemicals steady, and in jewelry fair for tho season. At Baltimore, cold weather has stim ulated trado in seasonable goods. Speculation in cotton has been liqui dating, tho prico declining a quarter, although receipts this week aro 40,000 bales less than exports 10,000 moro than a year ago. Larger estimates of tho crop are now sent out. The treasury has been disbursing freely since Jan. 1, and very larce returns of money from tho interior have caused lower rates here. But for eign exchange advances, and exports of gold are expected. Merchandise imports continue fully up to last yoar's figures, whilo exports from Now York for two weeks have de clined $5,000,000, or over 30 per cent. It is evident that no largo shipments of se curities or withdrawals of foreign capi tal will be needed during the coming months to causo some outgo of gold. The business failures during the past seven days number for tho United States, 280; Canada, 20; total 300, as compared with 840 last week and 830 foi tho corresponding week of last year. ESCAPING NATURAL GAS. A Man and Ills "Wife Overcome, the Latter Dead When Found. Indianapolis, Jan. 14. Residents in tho neighborhood of John Kuster, on Archer street, were surprised yesterday morning to see no signs of life about tho house and an investigation was be gun. No ono answered to repeated knocks at tho door, and tho premises were entered by force and Mr. and Mrs. Kuster wero found in bed, the latter dead and tho former unconscious from escaping natural gas, with which tho room was filled. A physician was called, and, after an hours work, Kuster was restored to consciousness, and may recover. Thoy left tho fire burning in the kitchen, and it is supposed that tho increased pres sure during tho night, by reason of many fires being turned out, supplied a Greater quantity of gas than could o consumed. There havo been several cases of axphixyation during tho past few days, and all of them aro traceable to tho same cause. NARROW ESCAPE FROM" DEATH. , Twentj-Plvo Pooplo Almost Asphyxiated by Illuminating Gas, PirrsBURa, Jan. 14.
