The Northern Pacific Rail
way company is investigating
the wreck which occurred to the
North Coast Limited at Detroit,
Minn., Monday, and will sift the
responsibility to the proper
cause. The officials are as yet
unable to state what caused the
accident, which fortunately re
sulted in the death of but one per
son, and the slight injury of but
three or four others.
The story of the wreck will end
here with the general public, but
it means more than the killing of
one man and the injuring of a few
others. Every railroad wreck,
whether anyone is hurt or not,
means a very close investigation,
which may last for weeks. The
investigation results in the dis
charging of one or more em
ployes. This happens even
though the damage is very slight.
The employe may have been
working for the road for fifty
years and given satisfaction all
the time. The one little slip costs
him his job and h^ thrown help
less upon the wor|$. As a rule
he does not wait till he is tired,
but hands in his resignation and
walks out. It is merely a matter
It seems sad that this should
be the case, but it is necessary
that it should be so. A tremend
ous responsibility rests upen
those in any way connected with
the running of trains. A moment
of forgetfulness may mgt the
lives of hundreds. When a man
is caught neglecting his duty the
railroad" officials look upon it as
a duty to the public to discharge
that man. This not only pun
ishes the man but sets an ex
ample to other employes of the
road, and is a continual reminder
of what may happen to them,
which insures a greater degree
of safety all along the line.

France Lavishly Returns Great Brit
London, July 9. France lavishly
returned Great Britain's hospitality
last night by a dinner given by Pres
ident Loubet to King- Edward at the
French embassy. The scene around
the embassy was most animated. The
king was met at the door of the em
bassy by M. Loubet, who had arrived
there a little earlier than his majesty,
Ambassador Carnbon and the staff of
the French embassy. The Interior of
the embassy was profusely decorated.
The white-walled banquet hall was
transformed into a bower of roses, a
compliment to King Edward. The
guests included Premier Balfour, Col

Minister Lansdowne, the United
States ambassador, Mr. Choate, the
Spanish, Italian, Russian, German and

A WE8T VIRGINIA CROESUS
Henry G. Davis Has Had Rapid Rise
Henry G. Davis, formerly United
States senator from West Virginia,
does not figure as often in the news of
the day as he once did, but that does
not mean that he is not taking a large
hand In the great matters of business
and politics, reports Harper's Week
ly, He began life as a brakeman on
the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, and
got his start. Then, when he had
enough money to branch out, he
bought 18,000 acres of West Virginia
wilderness for a few cents an acre.

Against Duty on Works of Art.
J. Pierpont Morgan, Chas. T. Yerkes
and other wealthy men have formed
an association the object of which is
to secure a repeal of the tariff duty on
paintings and works of art imported
into this country. An appeal is to be
made to President^Roosevelt and in
dividual members of Congress will be
asked to use their influence to have
the law changed. Mr. Morgan has
more than $1,000,000 worth of paint
ings stored in London, Paris and Ber

of $250,000 in his London apartments,
and says he will not bring them here
until the dutv i taken off.

Milky Sea Is a Puzzle.
The milky sea, as it is known to
mariners, is not yet fully understood.
It seems to be most common in tne
tropical waters of the Indian ocean,
and 1B described as weird, ghastly and
awe-inspiring, and as giving the ob
server on shipboard the sensation of
passing through a sort of luminous
fog in which sea and sky seem to join
and all sense of distance is lost The
phenomenon is probably due to some
form of phosphorescence.

DUTIES OF "MY" DOCTOR.
Physicians of Millionaires Must Be
Up to Date.
Such a man as Rockefeller or Mor
gan is a life study for a physician,
and the man who can keep in perfect
order a human machine of vast im
portance in the community is worthy
of Schwabian compensation. The
big insurance companies are willing
to employ a physician at $100,000 a
year to keep either of the gentlemen
mentioned alive ten years longer.
"My" doctor In such a case must
know what medicine to prescribe
whenever Morgan or Rockefeller
sneezes, frowns, swears, limps,
groans, growls, thunders, kicks over
the waste basket, $ smokes too many

too heartily of corned beef and cab

FOG AS A BEAUTIFIER.
New York Society Woman Divulges
Mrs. Langtry's Secret.
Mrs. Langtry attended a reception
in New York last week and roused
much envy among fashionables who
were present because of her beautiful
complexion, which is really a marvel.
Subsequently a rather faded beauty
exclaimed: "Hew on earth does she do
it? Why, she's 50 if she's a minute."
Another grande dame, who spoke as
though she knew, gave this explana
tion: "It's Jersey, her birthplace. You
know Mrs. Langtry spends six or eight
weeks every season OD her farm there.

Queen Alexandra's laces, linens and
silks are perfumed by a method which
almost any woman can copy. The
drawers in which they are kept are
lined with white paper, strewn with
rose petals. On this is placed a layer
of the fabrics to be scented, over that
a layer of rose leaves, vnd so on in
alternation until the drawer is filled.
At the end of twenty-four hours every
thing in the drawer will have a deli*

Edwin L. Sabin, In New Kngland Maga
It was dinner time when Jumbo Sam
rode up to the Hat Six ranch. Hospi
tality is the first law of the cattle
country, and Jumbo Sam, who had
paten breakfast seven hours before,
was in no mood to transgress it. Hia
saddle creaked as it was relieved of
his 200 pounds, and the jadeti cow
pony shook himself with satisfaction.
"Dinner is now ready in the dinin'
car," sang out the cook. "Come an'
git it while it's hot."
In response to the welcome call the
crowd of cow punchers filed into the
"Come on, Jumbo," said Eufi.*
Thompson, foreman of the Hat Si*.
"Better hit the grub trail right now, if
you don't want the cook to work over
time. Them cow hands is liable to
clean off that table as quick as a
beaver workin' in a patch o! fresh wil
lows. They ain't got no more manners
than one o' yer bears when it seta
down to an antelope carcass."
Jumbo Sam was a bear hunter by
occupation, and the simile was sot
lost on him. He made a hasty pre
tense of scrubbing his bearded face
in the water trough at the side of the
kitchen, and followed Thompson into
the dining room.
"9*)t yere, Jumbo, right acrost iron
Peg Simmons. You know Peg. At
least if you don't you'd orter."
Other than an involuntary start.
Jumbo Sam gave no sign that he rec
ognized Simmons. He took the seat,
however, and bent his head so low
over his plate that Jack Fulmer, hia
nearest table companion, said after
ward that he thougut the hunter wa
about to ask a blessing.
This expectation was net realized,
for Jumbo Sam, with head still low'
ered, swept the table with sidelong
glances and heJped himself liberally
to beefsteak, biscuits and potatoes as
the food was passed to him. As he
had a reputation for conversation of
that ..personal variety known as brag
gadocio, his silence was noticeable.
His close attention to the business in
hand, however, seemed to remove any
mysterious cause for this lack of lo
quacity. Not once did he refuse
help himself to the contents ot the
meat platter or pav of biscuits. Had
it not been for his peculiar manner
during the meal his reticence might
have been passed by without com
ment. Not once did he raise Ills eyea
to Peg Simmons. The strange twisi
of his thick neck suggested rheuma
tism, spinal trouble, earache, almost
any ill, in tact, which could be con
tracted by a man who sometimes
tracked a grizzly in fresh snow for
two or three days with stopping until
he found his game.
Peg Simmons on the other iand
seldom looked at his plate. His email
blue eyes rested almost constantly on
the bowed head across the table. He
was a little manhardly five feet
eight, and his slight frame contrasted
sharply with Jumbo Sam's bulky fig
are. Moreover, he was a cripple. One
day while trying to head a refractory
steer in gophr ground his pony had
stepped in a prairie dog hole and
thrown him. Simmons' left leg was
broken so badly that it had to be
"Heerd yon been shootln' off yer
yawp about Nell,* he says,
amputated. The surgeon did the Job
in such bungling fashion that the op
eration had to be repeated. When
Simmons recovered he came to the
Hat 3ix ranch, where he formerly had
been erriloyed. The proprietor gave
him money to buy a wooden leg, and
in few weeks Simmons had won the
nickname of "Pes," and the reputat/on
of being one of the beet cow punchers

misfortune. No man in the outfit was
his superior in roping a steer, noj
