All AWFU FATE
Pembroke, N. H., Jan. 18.—Seven
persons, all members of the family of
Charles M. Ayers, are supposed to have
perished in a fire which destroyed
Ayers' farmhouse near here Wednes
day. The bodies of a child and of
Ayers' mother-in-law have been found
in the ruins. Mrs. Ayers and four
children are missing, and it is feared
that they, too, are victims of the fire.
The authorities suspect that a crime
The theory of the county authorities
is that Ayer was the murderer, but up
to a late hour they had been unable to
find any evidence to indicate the meth
ods employed to wipe out the family.
Whether the victims were shot or
killed by other means cannot be told
at present. Up to a late hour only
charred fragments of two of the vic
tims had been recovered, although
persons who visited the scene of the
fire thought that they observed two
other trunks in the blazing ruins.
The victims of the tragedy were:
Charles F. Ayer, aged 43, killed himself
by shooting Mrs. Addie Ayer, his
wife Mrs. Isaac Lakeman, Ayer's
mother-in-law Flossie Ayer, aged 12
Alfred Ayer, aged 1.0 Bernice Ayer,
aged 6 Andrew Ayer, aged 4, and a girl
baby, all children of the Ayers.
The fire occurred about nine o'clock
in the morning, and Ayer drove up to
the home of his sister, Mrs. George
Bailey, in the town of Chichester,
about ^ix miles from his home, just
after ten o'clock. He remained at Mrs.
Bailey's place during the afternoon,
and when informed that his buildings
had been burned manifested some agi
tation. A moment later he drew a re
volver and, pointing it at his right
temple, fired, and fell unconscious. He
died Wednesday night.
JURY GIVES DAMAGES.
Verdict of $750 Is Returned Against
Sanitary District of
Peoria, 111., Jan. 19.—The jury in the
case of W. R. Curran and Congress
man Joseph W. Graff, vs. the sanitary
district of Chicago, Thursday brought
in a verdict giving the complainants
damages in the sum of $750. The
amount sued for was $55,000. This is
the first of a series of suits against
the drainage district, the total of
which aggregate $4,500,000. The plain
tiffs claim that by reason of the im
mense volume of water turned into the
Illinois river from the drainage dis
trict, their lands have been submerged,
and great damage resulted. The case
was stubbornly contested on account
of the effect it would have on the other
cases. The hearing lasted seven weeks
and four days.

San Francisco, Jan. 20.—'The rain
storm which has prevailed in this state
for the last week has abated. While
it has been of the greatest need to
farmers, stockmen and miners, several
bridges have been carried away, many
acres of lowlands flooded and two or
three lives are said to have been lost.
The property loss exceeds $150,000, but

Washington, Jan. 18.—The recent
forcible removal from the White House
of Mrs. Miner Morris was made the
subject of emphatic denunciation by
Senator Tillman in the senate Wednes
day. His remarks called ojut remon
strances from Senators Hale, Hopkins

of two and a half hours Wednesday
the house took favorable action on 180

Washington, Jan. 19.—There was an
echo of Wednesday's stormy session
in the senate Thursday when Senator
Tillman presented his resolution di
recting a senatorial investigation into
the removal of Mrs. Minor Morris
from the White House. The resolu
tion provoked no debate, and Senator
Tillman contented himself with a brief
statement in which he said that he
would not have introduced the resolu
tion but for the taunts of Senator
Hale. When he concluded, Senator
Daniel moved that the resolution be
laid on the table, and this disposition
was made of it by a vote of 54 to 8.
Washington, Jan. W—The hou?e
passed a bill providing for the final

kins (N. Y.).
CRACKSMEN AT WORK.
Bank at Elwood, 111., Robbed of $3,000
—Safe in Post Office at Dun
ning, 111., Rifled.
Chicago, Jan. 20.—Two safe robberies
in which thousands of dollars were
stolen, both within a few miles of Chi
cago, were reported to the police Fri
day. They are laid to an organized
band of bank robbers believed to be
hiding in this city. The boldest of the
robberies was at Elwood, 111., where
the safe of J. C. Beattie's private bank
was shattered with dynamite and the
robbers, carrying away a sum given
officially as $3,000, fled northward on a
handcar over the Chicago & Alton rail
road. This robbery was reported on
the heels of news from Dunning, just
outside of the city limits, that three
burglars had entered the branch post
office there and blown open the safe,
getting stamps and money, the value
of which is unknown.
Oppose Execution of Woman.
Des Moines, la., Jan. 20.—Members
of the Iowa senate unanimously Friday
placed themselves on record as op
posed to the legal execution of Mrs.
Tolla, the New Jersey woman con
demned to die for the murder of Joseph
Sontarea, by signing a petition for her
full and complete pardon. This will be
forwarded to Gov. Stokes at once. An
other petition in circulation for the
same purpose has 10,000 signatures.
Find Buried Treasure. ...
Emporia, Kan., Jan. 20.—'Marion
Turner and Otto Freshwater, Emporia
men, claim to have found buried treas
ure to the value of $100,000 in or neai
Phoenix Mound, southwest of Emporia.
Part of the treasure, they say, is in
gold, coin and the remainder in gold
bearing quartz. The treasure is said to
have been buried in 1848 by three men
who were on their way east from Cali
fornia when surrounded by Indians.
Famous Prison Closed,
St. Petersburg, Jan. 20.—The Schlus
selburg state prison in the fortress of
that name, famous as the place of in
carceration for so many political pris
oners, has closed. The prison was
practically emptied on the occasion of
the publication of the amnesty decree
I last fall.
PROBLEMS IN COLORS
WHITE IS COOL, YET ARCTIC ANIMALS
AS A RULE ARE WHITE.
W Ar Lan Birda Mostl a
and. Se a Birds I Man Caaei,
W it W a Nearl Al
le so ms is us
In summer weather ladies, and men,
too, when possible wear white. Why?
To keep cool, of course, you will say.
If this be so, why, then, are almost all
the creatures that live in arctic regions
clothed in white? The usual reply is
that the white color is for protective
purposes—in order, in fact, to make
them invisible to their enemies in the
midst of the wastes of snow.
But, consider, again, is this reasona
ble? From whonJ does the polar bear
need to hide? He has no enemies to
fear. And as for the birds which as
sume a white plumage when they mi
grate north, surely they also have far
fewer foes in the polar regions than
when farther south.
Again, if white be a cool color this is
surely another reason against the in
habitants of the coldest regions turning
white at the approach of winter. It Is
easy to strengthen this argument. Visit
the tropics, and you will find hardly
any white animals or birds. In the very
hottest regions of the globe not only is
man, as a rule, black, but the birds and
beasts are either very dark or else ex
tremely brilliant in color. Of tropical
birds the commonest colors run as fol
lows: Brown, dark green and dark blue,
emerald green, reds and yellows.
Speaking of the birds again, why is it
that land birds are mostly dark hued
while'so many sea birds are white?
Here is another color puzzle. Almost
all song birds are somber in hue, while
the brightly colored species, such as the"
jays, the parrots and birds of paradise,
have naturally harsh voices.
The colors of flowers and leaves offer
numbers of interesting problems. No
one quite knows why the prevailing
tint of early spring flowers is either
white or yellow. Yellow, indeed, holds
Its own to some extent all through the
summer, but the typical color of sum
mer blooms is pink, while as the au
tumn advances richer crimsons and all
the rich, glowing hues of dahlias and
chrysanthemums are seen.
Horticulturists have produced pop
pies of pretty nearly every shade under
the sun, and with many other flowers
they seem able to alter the colors al
most as they please. Yet the blue rose,
the black tulip and the green carnation
seem as far off as ever they were in
spite of constant efforts to arrive at
them. Nearly three centuries ago
Dutch gardeners imagined themselves
on the verge of inventing a black tulip.
The colors of the blossom of fruit
trees are limited to white, pink, bright
scarlet and purple. The reason no one
knows. Nor is it clear why nearly all
plants with purple blossoms have poi
sonous properties. The deadly night
shade is an instance which will be
familiar to all country readers.
It used to be said and many still
imagine that intensity of color depends
upon intensity of light. The brilliancy
of a tropical landscape seems in some
measure to bear this out. But any
amount of arguments may be deduced
against it. Rubies, opals and other
exquisitely colored gems are dug from
the depths of the earth.
The rays of the sun have never
touched them. The pulp of some fruits
is more richly tinted than the outer
rind, while the crimson blood of ani
mals is hidden from the light. What
could be more rich and magnificent in
color than the wings of many moths?
Yet these are all night flying creatures.
Speaking of moths, it seems odd that
there is no blue moth. Very few show
even a touch or spot of blue. The col
orings of butterflies present many prob
lems, for there seems no order or meth
od in their hues and markings, and a
strange point is the absolute difference
in these points between species other
wise closely allied.
Why do autumn leaves turn yellow?
Here is a question which is more eas
ily answered than some that have al-,
ready been suggested. The popular
reply is, "The frost does it." This is
only partly correct. If a really hard
frost were to happen early in autumn
there would be no tints at all. All the
leaves would turn brown at once. The
really gorgeous colors are produced by
a slow and gradual fall of temperature,
of course, without too much wind or
.rain. The cold causes a chemical fer
ment, which attacks the color com
pounds in the cells of the leaf. It is
those leaves which contain most sugar
which oxidize most rapidly and of
which, consequently, the color becomes
most rich and brilliant.
A question which is often asked is,
"Why do lobsters, shrimps and certain
other similar shellfish turn red when
boiled?" It seems that the black color
ing matter which colors the shell of the
lobster during life is an iron com
pound. We know that iron rust is red.
The effect of boiling is practically to
turn this iron compound in the lobster
shell to a highly oxidized rust.
The dislike of certain creatures for
certain colors is strange. If a number
of earthworms be placed in an oblong
box, of which one half is covered with
red and the other with blue glass, they
will with one accord crawl away from
the blue light and take refuge under
the red glass. Many other higher crea
tures share the same dislike to blue
