London, Oct. 14. The English
speaking world has suffered an irre
parable loss by the sudden death last
night of Sir Henry Irving, who was
universally regarded as the most rep
resentative English actor of contem
porary times.
Sir Henry died literally in harness.
He was giving a series of farewell
performances in the English prov
inces, and this week was playing an
engagement at Bradford, appearing
in several favorite roles. Thursday
he presented "King Rene's Daughter"
and "The Bells,'' and seemed to be in
^Excellent health, taking the exhaust
ing part of Matthias in the latter play
All the Vigor of Youth.
Last night., before an enthusiastic
audience he portrayed one of his most
character i% ically intellectual parts,
the title role in his own stage adapta
tion of Lord Tennyson's "Becket,"
with marked success.
After the performance Sir Henry re
turned to his hotel, reaching his rooms
at 11:30 o'clock, when it was observed
that he was in great pain. Physicians
were immediately summoned, but be
fore they could arrive Sir Henry was
seized with an attack of syncope and
Irving Liked Americans.
Washington, Oct. 14.—"Sir Henry
Irving was looking forward with much
enthusiasm to his coming tour of the
United States," said Charles Frog
man, his American manager, in speak
ing of the distinguished English actor
last night. "He liked the Americans,"
continued Mr. Frohman, "and he had
many friends among them. It was Mr.
Irving's intention to come to the Uni
ted States probably two mouths in ad
vance of the time for the opening of
his season in the latter part, of next
October and just spend the time in
visiting among them.
ftas to Be Hi«= Farewell.
."His season was to cover a period
of twenty playing weeks, extending
over a large part of the United States,
and was to terminate at the Knicker
bocker theater in New York city. It
was to be Mr. Irving's farewell ap
pearance in America and he wanted
the opportunity to make his adieu to
the American people.. Following his
last appearance in New York, about
the end of February, lie was to be en
tertained at a breakfast to which wel||
known people from New York, Phil
adelphia, Baltimore, Washington and
other cities were to be invited. He
tben expected to sail for England."
Confesses to Crime to Save Another

ing, cashier' for the Larkin Soap com
pany,. confessed in police court yes
terday that she had embezzled at least
$2,000 from her employers within four

port and care for 'her father, mother
and invalid sister in Buffalo. She was
sent to prison in default, of bail. Tbe
young woman was unsuspected by
her employers up to yesterday, when
to save another employe upon whom
suspicion had fallen she voluntarily
went to her employer with the same

Fell, twenty-six years old, a collection
clerk in the 'Wisconsin National bank,

tives say they believe his act was due

could not recover from a heart af
fliction, with which he suffered. They
gay he wis not engaged and-had no

not have been due to a love affair.
Fell was thought well of at the bank,
where he had worked up during the
past ten years from a messenger boy.

St. Paul: Oct. 14—Benjamin F. Nel
son, president of the Hennepin Paper
company Clarence I. McNair, general
manager of the Northwestern Paper
company, and C. C. Bassard, treasurer
of the Itasca Paper company, were
yesterday afternoon adjudged in con
tempt by Judge Van Devanter in the
United States circuit court, for failure
as witnesses in the case of the govern
ment against the General Paper com
pany to answer certain questions and
produce certain books and papers
called for by the summons.
The case is one commenced by the
government against, the General Pa
per company and its constituent com
panies charged with violating the
Sherman anti-trust law. The wit
nesses at the hearing before Special
Examiner Taylor refused to answer
questions put to them. The matter was
argued before Judge Van Devanter,
who ruled that the
Witnesses Must Answer.
The proceedings yesterday were part
of a prearranged plan io get the
points raised concerning the answer
ing of questions in such shape that it
may be taken to the supreme court
for settlement.
The witnesses were summoned be
fore Examiner Robert S. Taylor in the
federal building yesterday, pursuant
to an order of the court.. The wit
nesses again refused to testify and an
immediate application was made by
attorney Robert E. Olds to have the
fitnesses adjudged in contempt. The
motion was argued before Judge Van
Dervanter in the afternoon.
The 'respondents contended that to
compel them to answer and produce
the required books and papers would
be to compel them to
Disclose Business Secrets
which in no wise affect the issues in
the case that it was sought to prove
the respondents guilty of violating "an
act to protect trade and commerce
against unlawful restrictions and mo
nopolies," and that to compel them to
answer the specified questions would
be repugnant to the fifth amendment
to the Constitution of the United
States, as well as the principles of the
common law, whicli provide that no
man shall be compelled to be a wit
ness against, himself in any criminal
proceeding. Furthermore, that such
compulsion is obnoxious to the fourth
amendment of the Constitution, which
safeguards the right of a citizen to be
secure in his papers and person from
unreasonable searches and seizures.
Witnesses Fined.
Judge Van Devanter adjudged the
respondents in contempt, and imposed
a fine of $100 and imprisonment in the
county jail until the order to testify
should be complied with.
Frederick Weyerhauser and R. C.
Jefferson were secured as bondsmen
for each of tbe respondents and an
immediate application was made for
a writ of error to the supreme court
of the United States, counsel being
given 'five days in which to file a bill
of exceptions. The appeal operates
to suspend the judgment of contempt
until it is passed upon by the supreme

"1 have implicit faith in the sanitar)
properties of an onion," said a trained
nurse. "It is my custom to introduce
an ouion into every sick room where
I am called in, hanging it up some
where. I believe it attracts all mala

and roses and lillies are very pretty
in a sieli room, and the patient is
doubtless cheered when his friends
think enough of him to send ihem, but
practical friendship would dictate that
a basket of onions lie sent. There is
something about, them hostile to dis
ease. The juice of an onion is a cure
for deafness, a roasted onion reme

and holly berries bruised together are
a certain cure for chillblams. A poul

firm opinion of Mr. D. S. Colson, a

he does not hesitate to say that cure
is Dodd's Kidney Pills. The reason
Mr. Colson is so firm in his opinion
is that he had those terrible pains and
is cured. Speaking of the matter hr

Kidney Pills have done me lots of
