FREELAND, PA., AUGUST 22, 1895. A Unique Revenge. An ordinance requiring bicyclists to carry bells and lamps, and not to travel more than six miles an hour within the city limits, was passed a week ago by the city council of Topeka, Kan., and has caused a lively rumpus. Tho wheelmen object to the ordinance, es pecially that limiting speed to a brisk walking pace, and the night after its passage every bicyclist in the city turned out with tho loudest bell and the brightest headlight ho could pro cure, and a procession started round the town making a hideous din. There were cow bells, sleigh bells, dinner gongs, house bells, triangles and trol ley gongs, while one man had a trolley car headlight and half a dozen carried big stable lanterns. The uproar was tremendous and the demonstration a big success, in one sense. The wheel men claim they are simply obeying the ordinance, which does not specify the kind of bell or light that shall be car ried; but the chief of police threatens to arrest the wheelmen wholesale for disturbing the peaco if they persist iu their novel demonstration. "Now JJSFLT look at them boys," said a stout old gentleman, as he paused to watch a group of urchins celebrating. "Seems like boys ain't got no gump tion 'bout liandliu' fireworks like they had when I was young. Be careful, sonny, you'll put your eyes outl Here, let me show you how to do it." And then the good old gentleman lit a Ro man candle, put a bunch of lighted fire crackers in his coat pocket, and held a skyrocket to keep it from getting away, lie had more than one bandage on him before ho went to bed, but he muttered, Joyouslyi "Well, it Was a great day, anyhow 1" THE town of Hiawatha, Kan., de cided to dispense with the festivities which had been arranged for the Fourth of July this j-ear and to give the money which would huve been spent in the celebration for the relief of a destitute colony of Illinois immi grants and other needy residents of the vicinity. A very sensible and hu mane course, and one that will never reflect any discredit on Hiawatha or de tract in the least from its true patriot- Ism. Many of the larger cities might do much good to suffering humanity by following this example. THERE doubtless will be folk mean enough to attribute to the new woman movement the fact that a woman in Ligioner, Pa., was arrested and fined for swearing a few days ago. She swore ten oaths, which the court as sessed at forty cents apiece, lining her four dollars. It certainly was because of some new movement, says a local paper, for it was the first case of an arrest for such an offense in that town. IN response to an offer of prizes for Action, the Youth's Companion received seven thousand two hundred manu scripts. The number of those who are longing for a niche in the temple of fame is appalling. And there is room for only so few. The others must die broken-hearted at last. That is if they don't wake up to tho futility of their efforts and betake themselves to other pursuits. ON a single railroad system in Georgia, it is reported, thoro arc two million eighty-eight thousand peach trees already bearing, and the whole state is grudually developing into a magnificent peach orchurd. Some single orchards number over one hundred thousand trees, while almost all the farmers are setting out orchards in the hope of developing the industry still further.

By the end of next year, without con sldering further mill enterprises, South Carolina will have a grand total of 1,- 200,000 spindles and 30,000 looms, or al most fourfold her equipment in 1890. This estimate Includes only the enter prises that are already assured, and it is made upon the basis of a careful re view of the manufacturing industries of the state. Thirty-four South Caro lina cotton mills, projected or in process of building, were named in a list which was published recently by the Manufacturers' Record, and to this enu meration the state adds two -new mills at Columbia that boast 40,000 spindles and 1250,000 capital. The further statement is made that there are being added, or are about to be added, to the cotton spinning equipment of South Carolina no less than 424,000 spindles, and that, exclusive of the investments by old mill companies of their surplus in new mills, the capital soon to be in vested in the cotton mill Industry will be about $3,500,000. CANS made of paper pulp are being introduced to take the place of tin cans for containing all kinds of preserved products. The occasional cases of pois oning from canned foods are due to the contents becoming tainted through the cans not being air-tight. Many millions of tin cans are used by canned goods factories in this country, and such cases of injury from tainted goods arc comparatively rare; but because it is possible, through slight defects in the solder, or minute breaks in the cans, for such danger to result, tho canncrs have been looking for a satis factory substitute for tin. It is be lieved that this has at last been found in the paper pulp cans. They are oil proof as well as waterproof, will not expand or contract, and will stand as much rough usage in shipment as tin cans, and perhaps more. "I KNOW of no cities in this country," says an American übroad, "not even Chicago, that impress one so with a sense of newness and of great develop ment as Berlin and Glusgow. I remem ber Berlin fifteen years ago, when it seemed hardly as much of a city as Dresden. Now it is so wonderfully' built up and improved that New York seems in comparison with it an old established community, slow in itfi growth. It is much the same with Glasgow, whose progress in recent years has been little less than marvel ous. If tlioro are any Amo rienns who still think that our cities are the only ones that grow like weeds I would udvise them to take a trip übroad and get their eyes opened." WHAT the bicycle is bringing tho world to has been startlingly illus trated in the little Vermont town of Vandam, where tho pedestrians, who are in so hopeless a minority, are obliged to carry whistles and blow sig nals of warnings at nil perilous cross ings. The Vandamers who do not ride the steel steeds are paying pretty dearly for their whistles, and undoubtedly prouounco tho name of their village nowadays with an extra emphasis on tho last syllable. If tho fashion should spread the unhappy promenader would bo confronted bj* a sad destiny of wheel or whoa! NOT all the bicycle ordinances now being passed so plentifully all over the country are designed to regulate tho cyclists and their doings. One recently passed in Cliicopee, Mass., imposes a fine of from two to twenty dollars on any person throwing in any street, lano or alley, ashes, glass, crockery, scrap Iron, tucks, nails or other articles liable to cause injury to the tires of bicycles. ICE at fifteen cents per one hundred pounds is one of the hot weather luxu ries which New York people are en joying this summer, thanks to the ina bility of the ice companies to effect a combination at a higher figuro. The dealers say that this is less than cost. Well, the people must have an inning once in awhile. A DENVER clergyman says that there are ten thousand men journeying to the lower und warmer regions on bi cyeles. And Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton says that women are riding to suffrage on a bicycle. From all of which it would appear that tho bicycle is becoming an important factor in cur rent life. IN Texas there are two hundred and thirty-four counties; in sixty of these counties there is no newspaper pub lished, and in fifteen of thcin there is no post office. If the entire number of newspapers in the state was divided evenly among tho counties there would be less than three for each of them. IT took a colored woman to brave the somewhat brusque public opinion of Tucson, Ariz., in being the introducer of bicycle bloomers in that town. Iler white sisters had the bloomers, but not the courage, as was proved by their fol lowing tho colored wheel-woman's ex ample the very next day. THE twenty female school-teachers appointed a few days ago to teach in the West Chester (Pa.) public schools during the ensuing year were required to sign an agreement not to get mar ried during the year for which they were appointed. A WISE Aurora (111.) child whose big sister is nn ardent cyclist was trying to tell a visitor what bloomers were. "They're just like pants," he said, "only fatter." TO FIGHT THE ITALIANS. Colored Men of Chicago Secretly Ar ranging To Go to Spring Valley. Chicago, Aug. 16.—1t is believed the colored men of this city are making secret preparations to send an armed body of men to Spring Valley, 111., to force a fight with the Italians there in retaliation for the outburst against the negro miners two weeks ago. It was learned yesterday by the police that a colored man whose name is supposed to he Robinson has been canvassing the pawnshops in this city and has bought over one hundred revolvers. One firm of money lenders reported to the police that they had sold seven revolvers to a colored man. The description of the man they gave tallies with that in the hands of the officers. Detectives have been detailed on the case. It is said the colored people have become dis gusted with the public meetings because their plans have always miscarried. Therefore they have decided to meet in secret. At a meeting of the advisory board of the American Protective association of Cook county resoultions were adopted denouncing the mayor of Spring Valley as cowardly, disloyal and un-American for not using his authority to quell tho recent uprising there, and demanding that the loss sustained by the negroes be repaid. Sheriff Clark of Spring Valley was assured that the American Protec tive association stood ready with 5,000 men to go to the mining town to assist him in preserving peace. Princeton, Ills., Aug. 10.—The services of Edward Fisher, a police justice, have been secured and the trial of the twenty eight Spring Valley men charged with assaulting the colored population of Spring Valley will be commenced to-day. The defense have retained able counsel and the prosecution will be well looked after. NEW RUSSIAN MINISTER. >l. Do Kot/.ebue a Man of Wealth and Fond of Society. Washington, Aug. 16.—The new Rus sian minister to ths* United States, M. Kotzebue, who will succeed Prince Cantacuzene, proves to be a brother-in law of that gentleman. He has been stationed at Paris, where for many years he has discharged the duties of counsel lor and first secretary of the Muscovite embassy. He is the owner of vast es tates in the Baltic provinces of Russia, and is reported to 'e a society man in the'jbroadest acceptance of the term. His entrance into the diplomatic corps was due to the good offices of Prince (iortschakoff, who was for many years the prime minister of the empire, and who, a decade ago, was one of the great trinity of European statesmen, of whom Bismarck and Disraeli were the other two. M. I)e Kot/.ebue will probably not reach Washington until late in the sea son. Should he arrive sooner he will doubtless join the other members of the corps at Newport and Lenox, which seem to be their favorite resorts, particu larly in the early autumn months. DISHONORABLE DISCHARGES. Court Martial Sentence Approved by the Commanders.

The Early Life of the Secretary of State In Oxford, Mas 3. Tho Woman In the ()11 Homestead When lie Was Horn Had Never Heard of lltiu, llut Others Remember IIIm Well. | COPYRIGHT. 1895.1 ELDO M has | whimsical fate thrust high po shion upon a man so fitr ) known to the j / J people as Rich artl Olney, sec* j rotary of state. j Though he has been a resident of Bos ton for over thirty years, not two hun dred men know him by sight when ho appears on the streets. lie reached his present distinction neither through tho • political arena nor by stirring deeds of patriotism. lie was practically un known to public life until his sudden induction into oflico two years ago, when he was appointed attorney gen eral. Previous to that time he had held but one office, and that was tYventy j years ago, when he was a member of the state legislature. Mr. Olney's rise to the highest cab inet position is a surpriso to the people of Boston, and they are asking: "How is it that we never heard of Olney, when he has been living among us all these years?" Yet there is no mystery j about it. lie has been serving as cor poration attorney for tho Boston & Maine railroad, and other companies, and this legal work did not bring hiin into contact with the people or into popular notice, as he rarely appeared ; in court, lie acted chiefly as counsel I in his own office, which is in the same ; building as that of Charles Francis i Adams, formerly president of the Union j Pacific. From his legal practice Secretary j Olney has accumulated wealth. lie has a summer homo at Falmouth, near Buz zard's bay, and a winter residence on Commonwealth avenue, the finest boulevard in Boston. Mr. Olney has, however, risen to af fluence from a humble New England origin. He comes from hardy Worces ter county stock, and is a native of Ox ford, eleven miles south of Worcester. It is a village among rocky, wooded hills, with all the charm of those quaint HOUSE AT OXFORD, MASS., IN WHICH BICHABD OLNEY WAS BOILX. New England towns that, forgotten by time, change not. It has held its une ventful course,hardly disturbed by a rip ple, since Richard Olney was born there, sixty years ago, on September 15, 1835. Even now it scarcely awakens to the thrill of pride in its most illustrious son. Old, worn and gray with the suns and storms that for a century have beat upon it, the house of his grand father, Richard Olney, where he was born and whose name he bears, still stands, a sad reminder of the past. It has been moved from its commanding < position at the intersection of two roads and placed close to the street, j where it stands, scantily shaded by two young chestnut trees. Its present oc cupant was until recently quite uncon scious of its dignified past. It was the irony of fame! In re sponse to my vigorous knocking at the front door, an elderly woman appeared RICHARD OLNEY. , with a disturbed look on her face. When I asked about the memorable birth that occurred in her house sixty years ago, she said: "I don't know any thing about it. I have only lived hero three or four years. Richard Olney? Who is he, anyway, and what is all this fuss about? I've seen lots of peo ple pointing out this house this week." Upon being told that it was the birth place of the secretary of state she said: "Oh, yes; well, I'll have to read up about him." Shortly after Olney's birth, his par ents moved from the old homestead to Louisville, Ky. While there his father, Wilson Olney, engaged in trade unsuc cessfully, and the family returned to Oxford, when the boy was seven years old. Wilson Olney then became book keeper for the woolen mill in which his father had an interest. In addition to keeping the company's books, he was clerk in the company's store, as is usually the case in the mill towns. The mill was at Ilowarth's, a mile from the town proper. So as to be near his work, Mr. Olney built a home on a neighboring hillside, a little aside from the f-vOtory tenements. This old brown house stands, but it has become a tenement, in which live a mill operative and his swarm of chil dren. But here at least the memory of the original dwellers is known, and tho motherly housewife takes pride in say ing that some of the younger members of the Olney family were born there. The mill itself is run by its present owners, Andrew Ilowarth & Son, in I about the same old way as fifty years ago, when young Richard played about it and listened in childish wonder to the click, click of the looms. The same number of hands arc employed—be tween fifty and sixty—the same prod uct is turned out—white flannel—and I the same .power is still supplied by the French river, a small stream, dammed I up into two beautiful ponds encircled by two hills wooded with pine and maple. It was in Oxford that Richard Olney passed the formative period of his life. It was at the district school here, held not in the kind of little red schoolhouse | famous In story, hut in a room of tho corporation boarding-house, that he ! learned his first lessons. This building is now divided into a number of tene ments. But among the shifting popu lation of mill help all traditions of the old school and its famous pupil have vanished. Only one old weaver, who has worked in the mill as man and boy for over forty years, is able to point out the building. It was to this home in the littlo mill hamlet in a remote cor ner of Oxford that Richard Olney re turned on his-vacations from Leicester academy and Brown university, which 1 he attended. The oldest resident of Oxford, Miss Erlunia Smith, was a teacher at that time, and boarded in the Olney house hold. She is in her eighty-seventh year, and she threw some strong side lights j on life in the old brown house, j "I always thought that Richard had ! pretty high notions," said she. "Those | times when he came home from college : on visits lie held his head up well and seemed to think a good deal of aris | tocracy. I got that idea from remarks ho would make. lie was a great read er, and I remember that on one visit he brought 'David Copperfleld' and read it aloud to the rest of the fain- I ily evenings. While we women sewed, Richard and his father would read aloud." The resident who best remembers Richard Olney as a boy is Jonathan Pratt Dana, eighty-three years of ago. He was school commissioner when Richard went to the district school. "Well, well, it's nigh onto fifty years ago Mr. Olney was one of our school boys," said Mr. Dana, musingly, as he sat on the front steps of his house on the outskirts of the town. The good old man shows age in the countless seams of his face and in the ragged snow-white beard that encircles it. Rut his eye is bright and his mind is clear as ever. lie belongs to that al most extinct type of old-fashioned dis trict school commissioners who tilled their farms and stopped 011 the way to j market to visit the Bchools along the road. In this capacity he served the town from his twenty-fifth to his sev enty-fifth year. "We have had a gotxl many bright boys in our schools here," said the old man, "but I remember Richard Olney was foremost among his class at his ! age. It was at the district school de bates that I noticed him most. I then thought he was about the smartest boy in argument that I ever saw. llis logic al powers were remarkable for his age and the advantages he had had. "Richard's mother was an intellectual woman. She took good care of her family, never had a servant, but she was more than a housewife. She was a companion to her husband and the boys—that I call a model woman." Richard Olney's father was an unas suming man, who took the greatest interest in his children. He wished to see them make something of life. Ho was a money-earner but not a money maker. lie never became rich, though during his later years he held the po sition of cashier of the Oxford bank. His duties there were of a clerical na ture, and while esteemed by the direc tors for his honesty, he was never re garded as a shrewd banker. He al ways filled positions that enabled him to keep his family in comfort. All he could spare he spent on his boys' education. In this lie was assisted by Peter Rutlcr, his wife's brother, a well-known and prosperous Boston merchant. It is said that this large hearted man contributed to Richard's academic and college expenses. The grandfather also helped the boys. He was a money getter and ac cumulated a small fortune by hard work and close saving. lie had the reputation of being a hard man to drive a bargain, though he was strict ly honest. In his advanced years, when he had considerable property, ho got into a dispute with the town ap praisers because he thought they taxed him too much, and moved to Burrell ville to escape the Oxford assessors. The traits of this strong, rugged man are said to be largely developed in Richard Olney, who made the success in life which his own father missed. Herbert lleywood. Hho Knew Theiu.

They Are Arming Themselves and Residents Are Greatly Alarmed— Gangs Coming in on Every Freight Train—Expectation of Work in the Harvest Fields Attracted Them. Fargo, N. D., A tig. 17.—The great in flux of laborers to this section is causing the people here no end of trouble and it is likely that before the city has gotten rid of the army of tramps there will be serious trouble. Of late the men tired of looking for work and angry at being re pulsed on every hand when asking for food have been arming themselves, and there are now it is estimated over 1,000 men in this immediate vicinity who are carrying revolvers or guns. Burglaries of hardware stores are of nightly occur rence, and it is remarked that the case containing the revolvers and shotguns is the only thing molested. It is claimed by some of the men who have been sent to jail as vagrants that the army of un employed is waiting a favorable oppor tunity to hold up the city. For the past month men have been coming in here by the hundred and of late the police have been ordering them away as fast as they came. Every freight train brings in from ten to one hundred of the men and among the lot are some of the most villainous specimens unhanged. They claim that they were informed that there was plenty of work here, and demand that the people of the city support them until they can And something to do. There are more men in the harvest fields now than can find work and the steady rush of men to this point is but compli cating affairs. Many of the people here are b-ully frightened by the outlook. MISS HASWEIiIi'S PREDICAMENT Liable to a Ijong Sentence for Aid ing Perry's Escape. Poughkeepsie, N. Y., Aug. 19.—Miss Haswell, the Troy missionary, who is implicated in the escape of train robber Perry from Mattewan prison, has not been arrested yet. Supt. Allison of the Mattewan state hospital for the criminal insane will get out a warrant to-day. Miss Haswell, who is still at Ocean Grove, is shadowed by detectives and cannot get away. District-Attorney Wood said that the American Express company might proceed against her for receiving stolen goods; that she was lia ble to the United States government for using the mails for improper purposes, and that the state of New York will prosecute her for aiding the escape of a felon, which is a crime punishable by as long a sentence as the felon who is aided to escape. If this is accepted liter ally the woman may be liable to as long an imprisonment as Perry's sen tence, which is 49 years. The main evi dence on which the authorities expect to convict Miss Haswell is the confession of ex-Keeper Hopkins, he being willing to turn state's evidence, and the corre spondence which passed between him and her. All the keeper's negotiations for the release of Perry ami his pals were car ried on by him with the train robber in person. Hopkins is now in jail. HOLMES' "CASTLE" DESTROYED Incendiary Fire Wipes Out the Sup posed Murderer's Old Home. Chicago, Aug. 19.—The big flat build ing at the. corner of fiiid and Wallace streets, Englewood, in which is located the historic Holmes ''castle" was de stroyed by fire earl}' this morning. A night watchman discovered the fire. There were several muffled explosions in the rear of a confectioner's store that changed hands recently, and then the flames burst from all the windows. Mar shal Konyon declares there is ample evi dence of incendiarism. Davis' drug store on the corner is a complete wreck, as is also the confectionery store. PILGRIMS TO LOURDES. Many Travelers Arriving, Some on lilt tors. Paris, Aug. 20.—A great pilgrimage to Lourdes is now under way. Yester day twelve special trains left the termi nus here of the Orleans railway with pil grims for that shrine. Many of the trav elers were so ill or crippled that it was necessary to carry them to the train on stretchers. With accessions from the country the pilgrims will number thirty thousand persons. They will begin to arrive at liOurdes to-day. Alleged Deputy Sheriff Interferes. Slreator, 111., Aug. 17.—Peter Boyle of Chicago and Eddie Myer of Btreatoi fought sixteen hot rounds yesterday for a purse of s.">oo a side. The battleground was at Evans, a small station on the Chicago & Alton road, just over the line in Marshall county. The fight took place in the open air and was witnessed by about 400 sports from Chicago and an equal number from Streator. At tin end of the sixteenth round an alleged deputy sheriff of Marshall county jumped upon the plat form and stopped the tight. The referee declared it a draw. Will Exhibit, at Atlanta.
