The man who buys a mine rarely gets so deeply taken in as to have nothing at all that he can show for his money. There's coomonly a place somewhere and a hole in the ground at least. Not so, however, with a Mr. Tutt, who is reported from Colorado Springs as having lately purchased an Island off Washington state which he has since been unsucc'.4sfully trying to find. His tleeds call for ten acres in the San Jua.l group of British Co lumbia, and be fondly ho;.erl to build a summer home there Alack and alas! He sailed out in his yacht to where he supposed the :,laud to be, tinut not a scrap of land could he find. This might be considered suficiently provoking, but it was not the worst. The seller now claims that the island was there when he sold it, but that it sank into the sea at the time of the earthquake which destroyed San Fran cisco. All this Is no joke to Mr. Tutt, but, says the Boston Herald, It strong ly suggests the cash of the curious people who flocked to a tent and paid their way in to see the wonderful gyascutus. They didn't see him, but were glad to escape with their lives at the alarming try that the ferociour gyascutus had broken loose. Prison Reform. A notable reform in prison adminis tration is contemplated by Gov. Folk and the advanced penologists of Mis souri, and at the governor's sugges tion the Rev. E. A. Fredenhagen, of Topeka, Kan., is engaged in the prepa ration of a bill on the subject, which will be introduced at the next session of the Missouri legislature. Its chief features will be the payment to the convict's wife and children of an ap preciable percentage of his earnings; the use of a gradiutted uniform instead of the usual striped clothing; the sub atituatloa of a military double file for the abhorred lockstep and regular in struetion for prisoners tive nights a week. The whole tendency of the changes suggested is in the line of reformation aa distinguished from vindictive punishment, and a main purpose is to relieve the misery of the innocent dlependtlents upon the crim inal. Is the class pil)P to become a fea. re at ceducatlional institutions? a descrilption of the Class day ex, c;les of the Northwestern univer Ssity at l'Evanston, Ill., is this mention of the pipe of tpeace simoking, a cere mony not commonly practiced in co educational Methodist intistitutions: "Lewis R.

Federal Government Makes a Propo. t sition to Buy Quarantine Station. New Orleans, l.a.: The disposition of the I.ouisiana 1lssis.lppi River quar. antine tation hangs in the balance. That it is one of 'the best equipped in the country is evidenced by the offer which has lhen made to Governor Blanchard by the Federal Government, under terms of the resolution passed by the last session of the legislature. When the legislature at first fixed the knockdown price at $75,000 it was be lieved that this was too high a figure, and that the Federal Government would ,prefer to buy 'the land and estab lish a new station than to pay any such prtce. Recently Mr. Fourchy, one of the official of the treaury department, and Surgeon J. H. W\hite of the Ma Jxine Hopital Service viited the tation I and made an etimate of the value of the plant. The formal proposition to pay $75,000 has followed and now It is under consideration. Louisiana Crop News. Bayou Chicot, La.: Ideal weather for ootton piclking all the week and a great I deal has becan picked. With continued c good weather the cotton will be all picked :by October 15. It is d:,terior ating a good doal and very little or no top crop is going to be made. Consid erable hay is being cut and stored t away for winter pu'lrposese Canmpti, I.a.: The weather continues very warm, the heat being broken on:y by occasional light rains. Cotton is be ing gathered fast, and is opening fast. The boll weevils have done great dam- e age, but most of the c.!oln it too far ' advanced now for the weevil. Only half a cotton crop will be made in this t section on acount of boll weevil. ( Evergreen, La.: Cotton is still com ing in, and is openingl finely. The F weather is very favoabl2 and much is t being gathered and rbrought in. About t sixty wagon loads have come in to the a Evergreen Gin Comni:any today. The P yield is thought to 'be larger than first (8 estimated. The governlmenat entomolo g·ist was here a few days ago and re ports boll weevils in consideratble num bers in places and surely coming here. o Winafield, ILa.: The cotton crop in t this parish is ,urleh and is being licked. a The yield will 'average (60o per cent of a normal crop. In the western portion a of the panish and in one section in the eastern portion 1,oll weevils at- n tacked the plant about the middle of p August and destroyed all young bolIls I and squares. On many fanms all the a cotton has been picked, and while the II plant is still growing and would have made a fair "top crop," the fruit never gets beyond the square stage. Kaplan, La.: With the exception of s a few local showers during the past a week the weatht.r 'was good for all T crops. Several thousand sacks of rough C rice were brought to town. Cotton is a opening fast, and the farmers are tak ing advantage of the good prioe. Over a hundred bales have Ibeen ginned this season.

It A WARSHIPS GETTING READY n Navy Yard Officials Rush Supplies .f Aboard Vessels-Secret Instruc o tions to Commanders. Washington--Jacob Sleeper, the American charge d'affaires at Havana, r advises the state department th:tt the t government of President Palr mi has d considerable doubt of its ability to 1 maintain itself. Pre-idnt Roosevelt has given rush orders to the officials at the navy yard at Norfolk to hurry stores aboard the cruisers Tacoma and C:cveland so as to enable the vessels to sail for 'Cuba by Saturday. s Consideration has been given the question of se;nding the entire Atlantic fleet, under command of Rear Admiral Evans, to Cuban waters. Th: altu a tion in Cuba is such that th, gov. ernment may be forced to order these r vessels south. Y There is no secrecy on the part of 3 the army officers on duty at the war department that plans for a campaign have not only been discussed, but have actually been decided. These steps B have been taken because the adminis 8 tration does not desire to lose any t time in sending troops to Cuba to a maintain peace and protect life and a property if the situation becomes so t acute as to demano action on the part of the government. It is stated in the mast emphatic terms by Acting Secretary Bacon that there has been no request on the part of the Cuban government for interven 1 tion by the United States. But official advice has been receivehl by the de partment that the revolutionary forces are conducting their war upon the very gates of Havana, and that the t capture of President Palma and the members of his cabinet is amrong the possibilities of the next few days. If Palma desires to seek an asylum on an American warship it will be grant ed him. The Denver is now anchored in Ha vana harbor, almost within a stone's throw of Palma's palace. In case the personal safety of President Palma r should be threatened he could be taken t aboard the vessel within a few mo I ments' time. Commander Colwell, in charge of the Denver, will, of course, also afford all possible protection to American citizens in the city of Ha vana. In an emergency he will be permitted to land blue jackets for this purpose without waiting to communi cate with Washington. A' similar course will be pursued by the Marl etta at Cienfuegos, and by the Dixie at Guantanamo. California Democrats. Sacramento, Cal.-Former Congress man Theodore A.

Kopel is wanted in Porto Rico on charge of embezzlement preferred by Samuel Bathwell, an officer of the su perior court of Porto Rico. BRYAN REITERATES CHARGES BUT DECLINES TO ENTER INTO PERSONALITIES. Nebraskan Says His Candidacy Is a Question for Democracy Alone to Settle. Lincoln, Neb.-William Je",nings Bryan, in his reply to the Statement of National Committeeman Roger C Sullivan of Illinois, given out Thurs day night, declines to make the dis. cussion a personal one, and declined to consent to Mr. Sullivan's roll call challenge contest. Mr. Bryan reiterates his charges against Mr. Sullivan, and says the question at issue must, be submitted to the democrats of Illiriis when they select delegates to the next national convention. lie says Mr. Sullivan iS officially connected with a favor-seek, Ing, franchise-holding corporation, and the question is whether the democratic organization should be paralyzed by the influence of men whose private in terests make it impossible for them to be guardians of the public. Mr. Bryan says that he has not asked for the nomination of president and has not announceu that he will be a candidate, consequently he will not submit the question whether he should be a candidate to Mr. Sullivan or any body of citizens less numerous than the members of the democratic party of the United States. Neither can the question as to whether Mr. Sullivan be re-elected to the national committee be submitted to the mem bers of a committee already ad. journed. Such a decision would have no binding force. Mr. Bryan says he will urge the democratic party to put itself in a position where it can tight boldly and persistently for the regulation of sucn corporations as are not monopolistic, and for the prevention of any private monopoly, whatever. To this end the organization must be composed of men who are free to act for the pub. lic, and not tied by personal interests to corporations which are seeking fat vor at the public's expense. MAINE ELECTION RESULTS. Cobb (Rep.) Re-elected Governor by Reduced Majority. Augusta, Me.-The much-talked of Sturgis liquor law raised havoc in the Maine election, Governor Cobb, repub lican, being re-electd by from 7,000 to 10,000, as against nearly 27,000 plu rality two years ago. Nearly all the cities in the state wont democratic, and one city in Pen. obscot county for the first time in its history. Four of the counties that went into the democratic camp were Cumberland, Knox, Androscoggin and Kennebec, the last for the first time in its history. All four of the republican congress men of Maine are undoubtedly re elected, although by reduced majorl ties. Congressman Littlefield, against whom warfare was waged by Presi dent Gompers of the American Feder. ation of Labor, will win out by from 1,000 to 1,300. Two years ago his plurality was 5,391. Not for "many Jears have the demo cratic voters been so aroused fromn their slumbers. Seven of the thirty. one senators and sixty of the 1k1 rep resentatives in the legislature will be democratic.

Quar lcr of a pound of butter and halt a pound of sugar to half a peck of tart apple's. RICII BAKED APPLE Pl-D)DING Ilalf pound the pulp of apples, half loaf sugar, six ounces of butter, the rind of one lemon, six eggs, puff paste. Peel and core and cut the apples as for sauce; put them into a stewpan, with only just sufficient wa ter to prevent them from burning, and let them steep until reduced to a pulp. Weigh the pulp, and to every half pound add sifted sugar, grated lemon peel, and six well beaten eggs. Beat these ingredients well together, then melt the butter, stir it to the other things, put a border of puff paste round the dish, and bake for more than half an hour. The butter should not be added until the pudding is ready for the oven. APPLE SAGO PUDDING-One cup sago in a quart of tepid water, baked for an hour, six or eight apples, pared and cored oe quartered and steamed tender, and put in the pudding dish; boil and stir the sago until clear, add ing water to make it thin, and pour 0 it over the apples; this is good hot with butter and sugar, or cold with cream and sugar. BAKED APPLE DUMPLINGS - Make in the same way, using a soft dough; place in a shallow pan, bake in a hot oven, and serve with cream and sugar, or place in a pan which at is four or five inches deep (do not C have the dumplings touch each oth er); then pour In hot water, just is, leaving top of dumplings uncovered. d To a pan of four or five dumplings 11 add one teacup sugar and half a tea cup of butter; bake from half to s three-quarters of an hour. If water e cooks away too much add more. Serve 9d dumplings on a platter and the liquid in sauceboat for dressing. Fresh or al canned peaches can be made ,he same is way. WHITE TAILOR SUITS. 1( ic They Are Pretty and Will Be Much in Vogue for Winter. n to Tailor suits of white broadcloth and serge are made with a touch of black. One long redingote in broadcloth had at a black silk collar, with a little white )e embroidery. White cloth' princess costumes are trimmed with black vel 1e vet in the shape of revers, straps, Lt pockets, cuffs and collar. Sometimes is all of these appear in one gown. An le other white serge street costume was r in Eton shape, and had vest and cuffs r. of black silk laid over with white lace al and white cord. It was finished with n- white silk buttons, with loops of cor d- responding cords, and was worn over Oe a white lace blouse. Both white serges and cloths made for spring 1 wear are reduced now because soiled, B and as they clean beautifully and d promise to be more worn this winter Sthan even last, they are a specially C, good investment. An all white cloth, to with long redingote, which had been L marked well over $100, was bought the other day for $30 by a woman who b intended it for winter wear with black s lynx furs. Another gray spring cloth, Scut in the same shape, was brightened with red cloth laid over with black and whlite braids in narrow rows, and will be worn this winter with black furs. It Is predicted that the redin gY ote will be as popular as ever because of the tight lines upon which skirts are fitted. Most of them show a seam i down the back and a few new ones ie are shown with a flounce set on just b. below the knees. :o A new autumn model was made in a. brown faced cloth, with braid of the same shade all down the front, with Sjust a thread of gold interwoven. It was cut with a seam below the waist, Shaving hip pockets outlined with braid t and gold, and was finished with a Smilitary collar of gold braid. The skirt was quite plain and braided to hide the front seam, fitting beautifully on the hips and just touching the ground all around, where it was slight. Sly full. I Removing Ribbon Creases. Ribbons will become creased in spite of the best care, and a hot flat iron re 1. moves but few of these marks of use. r.A better plan is this: Take a smooth n quart bottle and fill with boiling hot g water. Then wrap a single paper smoothly around the bottle, wrap the ribbon around the paper perfectly smooth and tight and then wrap an other paper around this and pin in place. Set it aside a day and night and the ribbon will be beautifully smooth and new to appearance. Soiled ribbons may be soaked and squeezed in a weak suds and when rinsed and dried, Ironed in this way. It is a very Ssatisfactory method. To Brighten Up a Carpet.

I usel three caket g of Cuticura Soap, six boxes of Oint e ment and two bottles of Resolvent a In thirty days I was completely cured, t. and I think permanently, as it wad d about five years ago. The psoriasai a first made its appearance in red spots, y generally forming a circle, leaving in d the center a spot about the size of a silver dollar of sound flesh. In a short time the affected circle would form 6 a heavy dry scale of a white silvery f appearance and would gradually drop off. To remove the entire scales by r bathing or using oil to soften them g the flesh would be perfectly raw, and a light discharge of bloody substance would ooze out. That scaly crust d would form again in twenty-four hours. d It was worse on my arms and limbs, d although it was in spots all over my body, also on my scalp. If I let the scales remain too long without remov. r ing by bath or otherwise, the skis would crack and bleed. I suffered in. b tense itching, worse at nights after getting warm in bed. or blood warm by exercise, when it would be almost unbearable. W. M. Chidester, Hutch. inson, Kan..

To the eye of the artist the gar ments of the modern man are only tolerable when age has adapted them r somewhat to the lines of the figure; e to the average artist a new suit of clothes is an abomination. r "It is not only that new clothes are more ugly than old," said a knight of the palette who discussed the ques. tion; "to my mind no one can be prop erly easy or graceful in them. "I never feel that I properly know a man until I have met him wearing an old suit. Certainly no man can possi bly be his natural self in evening dress. "I have noticed again and again how different the same people are when wearing different clothes. I went, for instance, to a large family gathering some time ago, and for some reason everybody had donned full evening dress. What a differ ence it made! We were all on terms s of intimate friendship, but somehow - the clothes brought in an element of coldness and formality. We all felt it--even the women, although, of course, the fair sex are not easily p6 Ssuaded of the merits of well-worn gar. ments. But no man who has discov. ered the ease and comfort of them will readily give them up. As for the Sartistic side of modern clothes, it only Scomeas when they have mellowed by use!" Scandal Spoiled.
