Newark. N. J. —In ten minutes twen
ty-five girls were burned alive Satur
day or crushed to death on the pave
ment in leuplng from the windows
and fire escapes of the four-story fac
tory building at Orange and High
streets, occupied on the top floor by
an underwear manufacturing concern.
Here the death list w’us heaviest The
lower floors were occupied by two pa
per bok concerns and two electrical
fixture factories. The latest count
shows that twenty of the twenty-five
bodies recovered have been identified
and that six girls are missing. They
may be among the unidentified dead
or yet in the ruins. The collapse of
a wall interrupted further search.
Fifty were taken to a hospital,~of
whom two may die.
The building was exceedingly In
flammable and the first gush of
flames had cut off all escape by the
stairways. The elevators made one
trip, but took down no passengers
and never came back. The only exit
was by two narrow fire escapes, the
lower platforms of which were twen
ty-five feet from the street. On to
these overcrowded and steep lanes,
scorched dancing hot by the Jets from
lower windows, pressed forward a
mob of women blind with panic,
driven by the fire and others behind
A net had been spread beneath the
windows and the girls began to jump.
"Like rats out of a burning bln"
was the way a firemlb described that
descent. They came out of the win
dows like a thick treacle rolled up
on the heads of those below them,
and cascaded off the fire escapes to
the pavement sixty feet below. Some
of them stood in the windows out
lined against the flames and jumped
clear; others from the landings; still
others from the steps where they
stood. The air was full of them and
they fell everywhere—into the net,
on the necks of firemen, and fifteen
of them on the hard stone slabs!
Six girls jumped at once for a life
net. and not one reached it. The
screams of the girls on the upper floor
afraid to take the four-story leap,
with flames sweeping upon them
from behind, sounded above the
shouts of the firemen and the whis
tling and puffing of the engines and
the ringing of bells.
When the awful rain ceased there
were eight dead in the street, and the
gutters ran red. Seven more were so
badly crushed they died in hospitals.
Fifty are still under surgical care.
Fifteen Killed in Battle.
Chihuahua, Mexico. —In an engage
ment near this city. Sunday, which
lasted from 9 o'clock in the morning
until 2 o’clock in the afternoon, COO
federal troops routed a force of 400
Maderists, driving them repeatedly
from strong positions and compelling
them to take to the mountains. The
revolutionists lost 15 killed and many
wounded. There were no fatalities on
the federal side, but several, including
three officers, were wounded.
President's Message Important.
Washington.—When Congress meets
In a few’ days it will have three
months in which to perform whatever
may be the demands of a Republican
administration. After that the fate of

pend upon the will of a Democratic
House and a Republican Senate. The
success or failure of the approaching
short session of Congress is believed
to rest with the character of the ex
ecutive message to be sent to the leg
islative bodies. Many of the Repub
licans, defeated in the recent elections,
are not expected to carry with the
best of grace the blows so harshly ad
ministered. and this fact of Itself gives

HRISTMAS shopping Is an
easy enough matter for
possessors of plenty of
money, but for the most
of us Christmas time
shows a great disparity
between the size of our pocketbook
and that of our heart—the latter Is
■o much bluer. The world ie full
of pretty things, waiting to be bought
by those with money enough. There
Is consolation In the fact that the
gift which costs time and thought,
and Is a little tax on the resources
of the giver, means more to the re
cipient than any other.
We are eager to remember our own
dear people and some of our friends.
Now the question Is, how much can
we spend and how shall we spend it
to Include them all?
We will start out with mother; she
should come first. A search through
the shops shows a lot of pretty gifts
that may be bought for little money
and a greater number that may be
made at home at a saving. She will
appreciate our circumstances. Some
good things may be found at the ten
cent stores even, and they are the
stronghold of the little folks who want
to make a dollar go a long way.
Mother will like the pretty waste
paper basket shown In the picture,
of white moire paper with delicate
roses on It. Here may be found good
looking candlesticks of clear glass,
which are as pretty as those that
cost three times as much. A variety
of shades and candles also are for sale
here and one may furnish the candle
stick with candle, shade holder and
shade for fifteen cents. Such candles
are so pretty for her table or dress
ing case and so many pretty shades
may be made of paper! At the same
place are paper perfume sachet with
good odors, tall, clear glass vases In
the plain designs, that are fine for
the table or elsewhere to hold
flowers or foliage. There are satin
covered pin cushion forms, to be cov
ered with lace or scrim or ribbon,
and any number of articles for house
hold use. such as tea strainers and
trays. A crumb tray Is one of the
best gifts to be found here, and here
, are lamb's wool soles for slippers, to
be crochetted and sewed to them. The

ten cent store Is very well worth
while for these things.
Lacquer boxes, from Japan, are
cheap and artistic, and very durable.
Buch boxes for gloves and handker
chiefs range In price from twenty-five
cents to a dollar or so and are to be
found In department stores. Little
' cabinets for trinkets, of the same ma
terial, are seventy-five cents and up
j —they are ornamental and so handy.
Selecting a present that may be
made at home Is easy because the
, outlay of money Is usually small and
the finished article a success. There
are pin cushions and bags of flowered
ribbon such as are shown In the pic
ture. Pretty little muslin aprons and
hand-made laces, made of Rennals
sance braid and simple stitches. Tow
els with large initial embroidered In
the corner never fall to delight either
mother or grandmother. Combing
jackets, like that shown In the pic
ture. are made of squares of figured
cotton or silk or of large handker
chiefs. They cost almost nothing,
since one may make them of a rem
nant a yard square or of four cheap
cotton handkerchiefs (with pretty fig
ures) and two yards of narrow satin
; ribbon. These handkerchiefs are used
for short kimonos, laundry bags, sofa
pillow covers, and smaller embroid
ered handkerchiefs for pin cushions.
Bed slippers, made of elder down
flannel, make an acceptable present
for an old person.

grandfather taxes the thought; men’s
wants seem to be so few compared
to those of women.
Handkerchiefs, ties and slippers are
among those that cost little and are
acceptable. Bill purses, for the safe
carrying of tnonev, cost from 25 cents
to two or more dollars. A good plain
fountain pen gives a man continual
satisfaction, and other articles for
convenient writing he likes. There
are portfolios with paper and blotters,
and other articles. Desk fittings, and
especially those made of Japanese
antimony, are tasteful and a great
convenience. These Include stamp
boxes, rolling blotters, pen racks, ink
wells, letter files and paper knives.

$2.50. A subscription to a favorite
paper or magazine is a good choice.

to the heart of the man who wants

i sot difficult to make and a great
comfort. Bed slippers Tor the old

like ties, stick pins and handkerchiefs,
books and kodaks.
It Is easy sailing when we start
out to buy a present for grown-up
or nearly grown sister. She will like
all the pretty things for her dressing
case, the candles, pin cushions, and
a lot of little foolish things beside.
Sterling silver shoe buttoners and
shoe Bpoons are to be had for a
quarter. Buffers, nail files, tooth
brushes with silver handles, appeal
to the taste for luxury which girls
possess. She can never have too
many dainty hankerchlefs and neck
pieces, or too many gay rlbbops for
her hair or lingerie. All these can

Young girls like ornamental pic
ture frames, pretty jewel cases, puff
boxes and hat pin holders. These
are shown In tasteful designs for fifty
cents each.

sachets. They like calendars with
pretty verses to hang In their rooms,
and chain or mesh purses delight
them. These may be bought for fifty
cents to fifty dollars each. Fans are
shown in a like variety.
If you prefer to make a present at
home nothing is more likely to delight
a girl than a bedroom set for her bed,
window and dressing case. These seta
consist of spread with flounce, cur
tains. pillow shams and cover for
dressing case. Muslin and casement
cloths are used for making them and
cost from five to fifteen cents a yard.
Fancy bands for the hair* made of
ribbon or tulle, especially If bright
ened with spangles, are acceptable to
the girlish heart. The floating veil
of chiffon and the soft scarf for the
head and shoulders will make her
eyes sparkle with pleasure. One has
only to buy 2H or 3 yards of material

makes lovely scarfs and may be had
from thirty cents to a dollar a yard.

Big brothers will like the same
things father does and besides, he
will like pictures of sports, baseball
and football subjects. College flags
for his room, sofa pillows, pipes and
pipe racks appeal to him. He will
flourish silk hosiery with great satis
faction and if one may spend a suf
ficient sum he likes a good suit case
or the fittings for one for traveling.
The younger boys and girls rarely
leave us uninformed as to what they
want. The girls want dolls and min
iature housekeeping things. Small
sets of furs please them. Hoods, leg
gings and mittens, bright hair rib
bons, a length of goods for a new
dress and school aprons are among
their gifts. Beads for the neck and
handkerchiefs they treasure. Girls
are fond of finger rings and purses,
and they enjoy kodaks as much as
boys do. In selecting presents. It Is
well to get those which will keep the
girls out of doors as much as possi
ble. Skates for Ice or roller skating
and mufflers for warmth are gifts
that do much good.
As for the small boy, he voices his
preferences with some Insistence. He
likes mechanical toys, skates and
sleds. Albums for his picture post
cards or his collection of stamps and
books of adventure, give him much
pleasure. A good boys’ magazine or
a mechanical magazine (If he is old
enough) will be fine for him. He
likes tools for building things and
above all plenty of good things to
eat. In his Christmas stocking.

all the toys, of which there are so
many, made for them. They like the
toy animals best. Building blocks
and picture books they never tire of
and the dear old fairy tales please
them forever. It is no trouble to
select a gift for them. There are
hundreds on sale that cost little, or
much, as you will. They are as happy
with a doll from the ten cent store
as with one for five dollars, and have
been known to prefer a rag baby to
a talking prodigy.
At home one may make for them
little shoes and bonnets, or baskets,
gaily decked with ribbon, containing
their toilet requisites: soap, vaseline
and fine talc powder. A plain basket,

John R. McLean stepped In front of
a lurching Irishman, one evening, and
obstructed the sidewalk so that the
Irishman was obliged to stop and

of you. Now you must quit telling

And he forked over another half

"Our little daughter, when three
months old, began to break out on the
head and we had the best doctors to
treat her, but they did not do her any
good. They said she had eczema. Her
scalp was a solid Beale all over. The
burning and itching was so severe that
she could not rest, day or night. We
had about given up all hopes when we
read of the Cutlcura Remedies. We at

box of Cutlcura Ointment and one bot

first dose of the Cutlcura Resolvent,
we used the Cutlcura Soap freely and

How to Check Rheumatism and
Kidney Trouble.
This is a simple home recipe now
being made known In all the larrer
cities through the newspapers. It if
intended to check the many case* of
Rheumatism and dread kidney trouble
which have made so many cripples,
invalids and weaklings of some of our
brightest and strongest people.
The druggists everywhere, even in
the smallest communities, have been
notified to supply themselves with the
ingredients, and the sufferer will have
no trouble to obtain them. The pre
scription is as follows: Fluid Extract
Dandelion, one-half ounce; Compound
Kargon, one ounce, and Compound
Syrup of Sarsaparilla, three ounces.
Mix by shaking well In a bottle. The
dose is one teaspoonful after each
meal nnd at bedtime.
Recent experiments in hospital
cases prove this simple mixture ef
fective in Rheumatism. Because of
its positive action upon the elimina
tive tissues of the kidneys, it compels
these most vital organs to filter from
the blood nnd system the waste im
purities and uric acid which are the
cause of rheumatism. It cleanses the
kidneys, strengthens them and re
moves quickly such symptoms as
backache, blood disorders, bladder
weakness, frequent urination, rainful
scalding and discolored urine. It arts
as a gentle, thorough regulator to the
entire kidney structure.
Those who suffer and are accus
tomed to purchase a bottle of medi
cine should not let a little Incon
venience interfere with making this
up, or have your druggist do it for you.
