The following is a quotation from a Sauskirt text dealing with the creation of woman, and is taken from "The Mystic Rose: A Study of Primitive Marriage," by Ernest Crawley, M.

In this dilemna, after pro-j found meditation, he did as follows: He took tho rotundity of the moon, and the curves of creepers, and the clinging of tendrils, and the trendi ling of grass, andjte slenderness of the reed, ajtd the»o add tho lightness of loaves, and (he tapering of the elephant's trunk, and tho glances of deer, aud tho, clustering of rows of bees, and file joyous gaiety of sunbeams, aud the weeping of clouds, and the fickle noss of tlie winds, and the timidity of the hare, and tho vanity of tlie peacock, aud tho softness of the, parrot's bosom, and tho hardness of adamant, and the swootuoss of hon-1 ey, and the cruelly of the tiger, nud the warm glow of five, and tho coldness of snow, and the chatter-! ing of jays, and the cooing of the kokila, and tho hypoericy of the,,, and the fidelity of the ehn compounding all om of bowers, erane, kt&waka, aud these together, lie made Woman and gave her to Man.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 0.— In an nest effort to expedite the adjustment of the coal strike problem another con ference over the situation was held at the White House yesterday and ad journed alter three hours of delibera tion. No statement was given out as to the conclusions reached, and every par ticipant absolutely refused to disc what had taken pinee during the meet ing. The conference was called, al though it was Sunday, in view of the extraordinary importance to the A met lean people of .1 solution of the ques jl on Besides the president there were pres ent at the conference Secretary of War Boot, Secretary of the Navy Moody, Attorney General Ivnox, Postmaster General Payne and Colonel Carroll P Wright, United States commissioner of labor. The last^na to attend the conference on account of his expert knowledge of the situation in the anthracite coalfields and because of his personal investigation of the conditions there which he made some months ago at the* Instance of the pres ident. The president in expressing his views at the outset of the conference talked earnestly and showed deep feeling. His voice at times could he heard downstairs. Several times during the conference Secretary Cortolyou was summoned into the room and directed to prepare certain matters for the con sideration of the president and his ad visers. This was taken to indicate that some action of one nature or another was about to be consummated. When the conference adjourned a few minutes before 1 o'clock, all those who had joined in it declined to talk. Every member of the cabinet and Colo nel Wright, the only outsider who was present, was pledged to the president to absolute secrecy as to what had oc curred within the conference room. ' •d file utmost efforts were made In guard ngainst publicity, just as the presiden tial summons which called tlie eonfer 'tleence of co had boon made in very quiet and Iho Spanish war has there boo rolully guarded my. Not siuc such shown at a conference of. otleenc such a character a this time, fn this slate of absolute was observed ot > of I ho parties to. the confer ence it is almost impossible to do more 9 very than draw the most general of conclu sions as to the nature of the proceed ings based upoi meeting. Tho know the president, has reached the conclu sion that he has nothing to expect save refusal fr hat preceded the nre that facts further appeal to the ?onl operators and therefore has decid ed to look for relief from a situation which in his view is fast growing in tolerable to tlie miners' side. lie 1'eeis .'hat lie cun hardly expect them to make the sacrifice of all of their con tentions without holding out at least a promise of some return, tion before him Is as to Ids ability to 3o this. He can pledge himself to ap peal to congress to examine into the Justice of the miners' complaints and remedy them so far as lies in tlie pow er of the legislative branch, backed by the earnest good will of the executive; also he can suggest to Governor Stone t>f Pennsylvania that he cause the Pennsylvania legislature likewise to make an Inquiry, perhaps hastening [he usual methods by calling an extra session. But these pledges fiveu only go at With nil speed tho coal for which the people fire suffering. To adopt this course men ns tlie tinuanoe of that policy of moral suasion to end tlie strike.
