Conference at Pittsburg Results in an Agree ment Eight-Hour Day Conceded. Pittsburg, Kan., May 24. The conference between the miners and operators, which began in this city yesterday, was finished at noon to day. The result of the conference is an agreement vtry fayorable to the miners, inasmuch as eight hours a day has been granted them, to go into effect on September 1. This concession places the miners of Kansas on aa equal footing with the miners of the east, where the eight hour day is already recognized. Shortening of the hours will give the miners steadier work and put more miners in the mines. Other demands of the miners are to be settled by arbitration, the miners to choose two men, the oper ators two men and these four to choo9e a fifth, practically foreeta'ling auy possibility of a strike in the mines of the companies ia this dis trict who are not operating mines in the Indian Territory orArkansas.

It had been a scorching Indian day, and now in the eol of the even ing, nature seemed resting in per fect stillness before the glare of to-! morrow. So etill is it that it falls with a sense of loneliness and fear upon the girl sitting alone on the veradna of the bungalow. It is the first the very first evening she has spent alone since she left home a long year ago and sailed for the coral shore aa George Trevors bride. She knew that she ought not to feel lonely as she glanced at the cot, which looks like nothing so much as an erection of lace with the oae big pink bow, and sees the little dark head nestling there. Had she not tald George dozens of times she could never feel lonely while she had baby? Yet now that George had gone away for a whole fortnight she does so wish he was baek again. Gerald is only five miles away in camp, after aw. Ine native troops have been giving trouble of late, and the senior officer dare not bs a min ute absent from his post until the expected reinforcements arrive, in about 10 days' time. What a boy a silly boy he is! It was just too foolish of him te make her promise to come every eveaing in her white frock, and wave a handkerchief, to let him know she is quit eafe. He will have to ride two miles, just to see that white frock in the distance. She is quite sure it is a mile and a half to the top of that hill. Any way, it will please Gerald, and she can run all the way home and whis per to baby, "It is one day nearer father's coming home. ' How she wished her ayah had not told her about that tiger. She is glad she has not told Gerald. Why the woman said it had been seen in the compound near by and how many bullocks did she siy it bad killed? Twenty? O, these stories were too, too ridiculous. Three days have passed, and three times had his little wife gone to the hill and carried out her husband's whim. To-night Gerald Trevor rides out of camp with a glad feeling at his heart. He feels eo sure of his little wife's love! His girl-wife, who is always so nervous about being alone, and who has such folieh ideas about Houp, tigers and snakes, which no sensible woman in the nineteenth century ought to have And the little girl-wife is setting nut. too. She ha3 last kissed the - baby for the twentieth time in a quarter of an hour, aud told the avail ftPftin and acrain to take the V r o very best care of him. Yet to night she loitere; it is very silly of her.and yery childish, too, to feel so lonely and frightened. She feels inclined to ask the ayah te go with her, bat she will not; it is Bhe with hpr Rillr stsries of tisrers whe has frightened her. CatehiDg up her little lace trim med handkerchief, she hurries from the bungalow. She is half-way up the hill Does she hear a rustle in the orasi? Bat: It ia her nervous fancj! The spring of a yellow body from out ef the thick, iong grass! A woman's frightenad cr! The thud, thud, of something borne acrtss the grass! Gerald Trevor is trotting toward the spot where, in the distance, he o-i'i bm hi wifa'a figure. He ia a ..... o wee bit late he had to return to give a forgotten erder; but, of course see will be there stiU. He has reached the place; yt-s there is the girlish form in white. ht-r handkerchief, he waves hia. Then turns his horse and trots back to camp, thinking how surprised his darling will be whu he returns home tomorrow for a few hours. Gerald Trevor is nearly heme now; he can tee tbe bungalow. His horse swerves slightly in the grass. Why, here is Dorotbj" handker ehitf! He stoops from Lis saddle and picks it up. What a careless little thing she is! Yet how he loves her! Here he is at the bungalow. She has not seen him coming; his horse" foot6tep has made no sound on the tarf. He swings lightly from his saddle and enters the bungalow. What is this? A weeping ayah, a disjointed story. The Mem-Sahib j had gone up to ths top of the hill. She, the ayah, had warned her not ! to go, because he had killed so many j bullocks, and they said he was near. ; But the little Mem Sahib would go I anyhow. i This morning ome caolies Lai1 brought back the little body. Their ! Story was: They were returning! home and had heard a woman's cry. ; They had, not thinking of tigers.! gone in the direction whence it came. They must have startled bim I for they only found the body fa! woman on the grass, her white frock oaked in blood. Captain Gerald Trevor is Colonel ! Trever now, and at 50 his acquaint ances think him a hardened, can tankerous old man. He never mar ried again, and the only joy of his life is his son, who hs, he thinks, his Dorothy's blue eyes. And although he has clearly grasped and settled in his own mind and to the satisfaction of a large body of citizens of Pullborougb, whom he represents in parliament. most of the knotty political prob lems of to-day, he will never be able to solve to his own satisfaction what to him, was the great myeterv what it was that he saw on the hill top on the night of his wife's death, for he must have seen it quite five minutes after the coolies found the lifeless body. Was it an optical illusion? Or will the explanation be fjucd in that love which ia stronger than death? The Gentlewoman.

New York, May Another American viotory over the Spanish forces has been recorded, and, while it is not prebable that the battle will figure in the files of the War De partment, it was sanguinary as some of the affairs that have the honor. Admiral Sampson holds himself responsible for this last coLliict When the Admiral It-ft bin home at Glenridge, N. J ,on his last southern cruisa, he was etrictly erjoined by his sons, Ralph and Harold, who are ardent admirers of fancy chickens. to bring batk some specimens cf tbe Spanish garni breed. The Admirai brought back thrte of the finest looking game cocks in Porto Rico. Mrs Sampson caution ed her boys ta keep tbe Spanish game cocks away from the domestic stock or there would be trouble Among the latter was a bantam reoster of pure American breed. The other day, while the boys were at school, soands cf strife amosg the chickens were heard ia the barn The family servants were too fright eced to open the door. When Ralph and Harold arrived silence reigned save for an occasional crow, which had a note of triamph in it. 4Tin afraid it's the first Spanish vietory," said Harold, but fcis brethe r stuck up for the baLtam When th door was opened, one of the Porto Ricj cherac'ion? wt s seen stretched cn tbe barn Hot Over the body ettod the American bantam Near by wss another of the Spanish birds fatallv maimed.

Cressev's Story of ire Great Preacher's Romp With the Bovs. sfw lott limn. A new etory of Henry Ward Beecher was told last Friday night at the Plymouth Church prayer meeting by Dr E. K. Cressey of Brooklyn Hills, L. I. It was a 6tory of Dr. Cressey's boyhood. One day his motht-r left the house, cauticniDg him and Li brothels that tbey must be very quiet and not rciup whi!e ehe was gone. There wa a hair brush with which Mrs. Cresney was woat to punih violators of the domestic statutes when any such occurred in her wtll-ordered hcuseboli, and the youngsters promised to be good and remained as btill as mice. Presently Mr. Becher arrived to make a call on the Cresseys and found no one to receive him but de- mure looking boys A flaeb of an- ticipation came into his eyes, as be joyously told his young hosts to prepare for the romp of their lives, "But mamma told us we mustn't romp," pretested the future doctor of philosophy.
