Fokt Worth, Tex., April 4.— Six com panies of the Fourth regiment have arrived here and two companies of the First are also hen 1 . Brig. Gen. Roberto is In com mand. The deail body of Frank Pierce, a striker, was found and has jost been brought into town. The two ethers who were wounded hove been located. Trouble is I. Hiked tor in the morning. The strikers are coming in frotn all directions. The train sent M.uili reached Alvarado, thirty miles distant, in safety. Attorney General Tem pleton, who is herewith Adjt. Gen. King. Bays: "Since the authority of the state has been invoked it shall be wielded and traius must move, if it takes the whole military force ol the state to do it." No attempt will be made to take out trains untii to morrow. A proclamation has been lamed closing all saloons and drinking bonsee of ever} description until o o'clock Wednesday night. TOO EXCITED TO BLEEP. Fort Worth rested but little last night. Fully 2.000 citizens were iv arms, and un til a late hour 1 ttta else than men with Winchesters were risible. Every now and tiieu some startling rumor reached the city, but the night passed without a casualty. As day began to break a oid rain set in. which lasted but a few minutes. Now and then the sun peeped forth from dull, leaden clouds, but It soon disappeared and the day wa&cold and blustering. A prominent Knight of Labor said this evening there would be no more aimed opposition, but if a train should run into a loose rail or misplaced switch it was the lookout of the engineer and not ol the strikers. The railway authorities say the movement of trains will be coutiuued until the yards are cleared. As the fighi of Satin day is summed op the citizens realize how perfect is the organ ization of the strikers. A more skillful maneuver than thai executed by the strikers can hardly be Imagined, As the people realize that the authorities were outgeu eraled they become terrorized. A -HiNiriCANT INSTANCE is found iv the fad that the Labor Sifting. the orgau of the Kni*bts of Labor of Fort Worth, on Saturday announced that !s. If. Lovin. master workman of District As.sem bij No. 101. bad -one to C'rowley. and that J. 11. Jackson, state organizer of the knights of Labor, had left for Wantage Tbe towns are both in Torrant county, and if theiv is a camp of strikers outside of the city tliey could easily be in communication with that camp. Some of the prominent citiasus arc in favor of organizing a vigi lance committee and hanging the leaders of the anti-law element. It is stated that these leaders have made out a list of houses to be pillaged and burned iv case the strike is not settled peaceably. The mayor of Ft. Worth lias at his command one company of militia at Cloboume aud one at Dallas. Cant, Mc- Muxray's company of rangers has left Har rr.hi for Ft. Worth. Thirty-live volunteers at Kaulmau are holding themselves iv read iness for instant service at the call of Sheriff TontmtS. Lieut. Gtbba. who resides at Dallas, teas i».'<-n autharized by Got. Ire land to call out the three companies of state troops at Dallas, and two of them, the Wilbermar riiies and the Dallas Light guards, LEFT AFTER MIDNIGHT for Fort Worth aiso a number of deputy sheriffs. These troops are in command of Lieut. Col. Turner, an officer who won distinction in the Union army. The depot and yards at Fort Worth were guarded hi?«t night by over 200 citizens called into service by the mayors proclamation, and the streets were patroled by armed men. There was great fear of lire during the night, and extia precautions were taken ou that account One hundred firemen were in waiting at the tire engine houses for any emergencies, and the tires at the pumping stations were kept up to a high point all nitrht. Offers Of aid are sent from all surrounding points, and engines are kept in readiness bo be. forwarded at a moment's notice. Strikers are arriving at Fort Worth from various outside points, and the state ment is made that the Knights of Labor have determined that Fort Worth shall be the point where trains shall be stopped at all hazards and that there they will win tho battle. On the other hand, it is said, that the citizens of that city declare that the ICissouri Pacific trains shall move even though it cost 8 scores of lives to accomplish it. Three more companies of state militia are under orders, those of Tyler. .Jefferson and Texarkana. It is impossible to say to night whether or not their services will be required. SOLDIERS. Militia from Dallas, composed of two companies of the Dallas Light Guards, twenty-four Btronc and the Hibernian rilles, twelve strong, arrived here on a Bpedal train about 3 o'clock this morning, and were quartered in the union depot. A feu hours later a special train from Har rold brought the state rangers, twelve strong. The south-bound Missouri Pacitic train brought twenty-live Grayson rifles, ou the afternoon train came the Decatur Rifles. :;•.' strong, and the Austin Greys. ?:; strong, the Texas Killes, 35 strong, the Cleburne Light Guards. '25 strong, and the Alvarado Guards. 89 strong. At 5 o'clock a special west-bound Texas & Pacific train brought the Crawford battery under Capt Houston. 12 strong. The troops here now number 235 men. Adj. Gen. King, Brig. Gen. A. S. lloberts. Attorney General Templeton, Inspector Gen eral P. Smytne anil Col. W. F. Gains are on the ground. The railroad yards arc lined with soldiers, and no one dares venture on the railroad property, District .Judge Prentham was called into consultation with the railroad officials this morning, the result being tnat about 12 o'clock a freight train was sent South UNDER GVAItD. of the Grnyson rifles and special force of fifteen citizens. Another train was at once made up and sent North, also under guard, and at 5 o'clock a third train pulled out go ing South. The railroad yards an skirted by a line of saloons and low resorts. Here have been congregated all day a number of desperate-looking men, some of whom are ex-railway employes. There were others also who heretofore have frequented the yards, committing numerous depredations, but to-day they have not attempted to enter the yards or in terfere with railroad property. No further trouble is anticipated in the movement of trains from the yards or through the city, but rumors are heard of bridge burning and dynamite plots. This morning the follow ing notice was found placarded at the post office and other prominent places in the neighborhood of the freight departments: Please do not sacrifice your lives by being shoved out on trains by government officers or Gould's petty officers. Last call. Fair ■warninjr. Tlie ahove notice was written in pencil. A few arrests were made to day for viola tion of the injunction issued against the strikers last Friday. THE STRIKERS ARE GATHERING here from other points. A number from Bonliam are known to have arrived this morning, and they are reported as coming from many other towus in the state. Las ~S ' S^^k A^*vl>-4**o^j*w^W^^ night eighteen men armed with inchest ten camped near the Texas i Pacific tracks, a short distance east of town. It is thought most of the strikers' force is out side of town and that an attack will be made on some central point just M the attack of Saturday was made. Adjt. Gen. King anticipated some movement of this kind, but will say nothing definite. The mere fact that artillery is being brought shows that the authorities fear the worst. A few moments atter the shooting on Saturday a slate health of ficer was approached hurriedly by an unknown man. who after some hesitation asked him if he was a Knight of Labor. When answered in the negative, the man at once decamped. After hearing of the attack by the mob. the doctor concluded that one of the number had been wounded and needed medical attendance. LATE LAST nan it was ascertained that Frank Pierce, a colored man. a well-known character here, who kept a candy and peanut stand and who had applied for shelter and assistance at a house in the suburbs, after having left the mob iii the conflict, died in the night. It is now thought that others in the mob were wounded besides Tom Nace and Pierre. The wounded officers. Sneed and Fulford. are still alive. The funeral of Dick Tnwnsend. the officer who was killed in the fight yesterday, oc curred to-day, and was largely attended. It is learned definitely to-night that Frank Pierce is dead. No one is allowed to stand on the streets. The officers are in citizens' dress. Nearly every man in town not identified as a striker has a permit to carry concealed weapons. THE GOVEKXOU CONDEMNED. Galvestox. April 4. — The News in a lengthy editorial on the Fort Worth affair says: "The woeful slaughter of yesterday was the direct, natural and logical result of official imbecility." After reviewing the lawlessness and obstruction at various points on the Missouri Pa cific during the past four weeks. the News inquires: '"Have the laws of Texas been faithfully executed during the past month?" and declares, "If the gov ernor had sent a company of militia to Fort Worth three days aeo. when the trouble was imminent, it might have been avoided." EXCITEMENT mamma Waco. Tex., April 4.— The excitement over the riot at Fort Worth has quieted down. Two companies of militia passed through here this afternoon for Fort Worth. Late information from Alvamdo states that citizens are in posses sion of the round house and express their determination to move freight trains, cost what it may. One freight was started south this evening, the first in three days. Local Knights have not given up the strike, but are making no threats. UXDEU TELEGRAPHIC ORDERS. Texarkaxa, April 4.— Under tele graphic orders from the governor the Bowie rifles of this place are prepared to report for duty on short notice. The Knights of Labor circulated papers among the citizens yesterday, soliciting funds to defray legal expenses in defense of twelve obstructionists captured at Man doville switch, who are now confined in the Miller county. Ark., jail. now much money they collected has not been learned. Richard Trevellick, traveling orator of the Knights, will lecture here to-morrow. THE ARBEinCXT BROKEN, And the Strike Ordered Continued by tiie Kiticlii*. St. Louis. April 4.— Mr. Hayes, the third member of the general executive eoni inittee. Knights of Labor, arrived here to n ght. givlnc the committee a quorum. Shortly after Mr. Hayes ar rived the general committee went into secret session with the local committee and cave the situation a very full and ex haustive discussion, weighing all the facts and giving all the points careful considera tion. The meeting lasted until after mid night, when the following was given out in the form of a statement to the pub lic: At the conference hold in New York with Mr. Gould and associates and the general ex ecutive board, the following was mutually agreed upon: That tho officials were willing to meet a committee or our employes without discriminating who are actually in the employ of the road at the time such commit' 1 is appointed to ad jv.st with them any grievance they mar have. The executive board, upon arriving in St. Louis, has been informed that Mr. Hoxio had refused to comply with the agreement ns all parties to the conference understood it. We waited upon him to ascertain his intentions of carry ing 1 out the same, and received the following reply: That only 50 per cent, of the former force would be re-employed: that he would consider personal applications ouly and use his own pleasure in acting upon them without the diciatiods of any society, this being in direct violation ot tho agreement. The general board believe that the refusal is for the purpose of stock jobbing, usinir the organization as a veil to further their end. We therefore recall the order given the men to return to work, the road having made it impossible to fulfill the same. The matter now stun. is as it did before the order was issued, in the bands of the districts interested, and the general board will render all assistance to carry out the de mand of the men for justice. "We anticipate no especial demonstrations coming." Paid Mr. Turner to a reporter, "and no particular change in the aspect of affairs. Things are simply as they were be fore." AX IMPORTANT CONFESSION. The Project on Foot for the Arrest of Knights. St. Louis. April 4. — A telegraph opera tor named Frank McKeighan was arrested to-day and made a confession which will create quite a sensation here. He says he entered into an arrangement with Thomas Furlong, chief of the Gould system secret service, whereby Martin Irons, A. C. Coushlan and other prominent leaders of the Knights of La bor were to be arrested. A room was engaged in^he third story of No. 2329 Market street, past the window of which ran a telegraph ire. on which He M. Iloxie. first vice president of the Mis souri Pacific railway, was in almost con stant communication with Jay Gould. Mc- Keighan engaged another operator named Nichols. The wire was tapped and an In strument was soon at work. The arrange ment was to have Irons. Coughlan and others in the room Intercepting the messages between • Hoxie and Gould, when the police would make a descent on the place and capture the whole outfit The signal for the descent was to be a lamp placed in one of the windows. On Friday the det'jctlves and a squad of police were ready and a lamp appeared in one of the windows of the second floor. A rush was made for the room, and a poor woman running a sewing machine was all that was found. The raiders found that they had struck the wrong room, and as cending to the third iloor McKeighan was found alone. Chief Harrigan heard of the matter and McKeighan's arrest followed. Industrial Iteniv. Five hundred journeymen bakers of New York Saturday night determined to strike on May 1 lor twelve hour's work five days of the week, fourteen on Saturday, and to board where they choose. Traffic was resumed on all the street car lines of Pittsburg but one yesterday morning at the terms agreed upon at the conference. T.ie Oakland company has not signed the agreement, and the men will not return to work until it does. At a meeting of the second and third pool coal miners at Schryocks,Pa., Saturday night it was decided to strike on Wednesday unless the operators advanced the rate for mining coal shipped by railroads one-quarter of a cent per bushel. The advance has been promised on May 1, but the miners want It at once. .Vj>. ■..'.. _ '''■'■:'.'.■' Lieut. Richard W.

A Sunday Game of Cards Leads to a Ghastly Tragedy in the Sixth Ward, Patrick Manning, an Old Man, Stricken Down With a Hatchet by Cole man Gary. The Scene or the Murder One of the Worst Localities In West St. Paul. The Murderer Eludes the Police for • Tlnie, but Is at Latt Captured. In the blxtn ward, down on Alabama street in Mm vicinity of Miunetonka street, is a territory known to the police as "Con neuiara Patch." A settlement has been built up, and rows of slab shanties flank the streets ou either side, presenting a most uninviting appearance. This neighborhood has often been brought under the eye of the police through the quarrelsome disposition of the people dwelling iv it. Druuken brawls are irequeut there, and cutting affrays aud clubbiug picnics are often in dulged in. About y o'clock last night news was received at the police station that a murder had been committed in the settle ment and the officers immediately started out to uncover the facts surrounding the affair. It was learned that Patrick Man ning had beeu struck in the head with an axe or hatchet by Coleuian Gary during a drunken melee and was lyiug at the point of death. The scene of the murder at mid night when the Globe representative reached there was one well calculated to chill the blood in the veins of an old. nary man. On low, Bantu ground, sat a half dozen unshapely slab shanties. The only evidence tliai they were occupied was trained from the rifts of light that stole out through the crevices in the sides of the building and STRUGGLED WEAKLY with the heavy darkness outside. ITalf covered with earth and partly surrounded with himh piles of wood, the houses looked more like temporary shelter for anima's than the homes of human beings. The night was so thick and black in the locality that an object was hardly discernabie at a distance of ten paces, and every shadow seemed to hold the form of a desperado. Behind a rough board fence stood a shanty whose style of architecture and surroundings were in strict accord with the horses hovering around it. In one corner a door stood ajar, and through the narrow opening came the low, solemn tones of the priest, as he uttered the words that were intended to bring peace to the soul that was about to wing its flight into the mysterious shades of eternity. Gently opening the door the reporter stepped inside. The apartment was hardly more than twelve feet square. On the rough u n planed walls bung a few articles of wearing apparel and cooking utensils. There was no ceiling and there were but a half a dozen beams between the eye and the rafters. In oue comer stood a bed on which was stretched the form of the dying man, wholly un conscious of what was transpiring around him. At the foot of the bed. piled high above the foot-board, were heavy logs of wood. Near the head of the bed stood a table bare of coveriug. Near it and nearly in the center of the room stood a cooking stove, in which burned a low lire. On the able sat a lamp, HI WEAK BLAZE struggling to light the apartment through a smoke-besmeared chimney. Stretched on the bed, with his eyes firmly closed and his features rendered horrible by the blood that had trickled over Ml face aud hardened in its course, lay the man who had been stricken down by the murderous weapon. Ue was apparently »iv years of age and a man of heavy frame. Aerom Us head lay a blood-stained band age that covered the terrible wouud through which his brains protruded, lie lay like one in a deep sleep. Not a muscle moved and the only indication that he .till lived was in his deep irregular breathing. By the side of the bed. in the dim light stood Father Gallagher with solemn countenance reading in measured tones the words of the sacrament. Crouched on tlu- floor behind the stove were a half a dozen women who watched tiie priest blankly and quietly as OS read. Not a sigh escaped their lips aud not a tear moistened their eyes. It was an unfeeling uicture of* horror. Just as the priest had lluished reading a tall man ■tacamd through the door and up to the bed-side, gazing down into the bloody face of the dying man. "Do you know him?" asked the priest, "Yes. sir, he's my father,'' calmly re plied the man. He withdrew without be trying any sigus of emotion. WHO HE WAS. The wound in Manning's head is a fear ful cut. It was evidently made with the sharp edge of the hatchet, which pene trated the skull aud brain. The bole in the skull is about one and one-half inches long and ruus from front to back exactly iv the center of the frontal bone just above the forehead on the bald part of the head. The skull is badly fractured and split in all directions. When viewed by the reporters the opening in the skull was about three-quarters of an inch wide from w Inch the brain protruded. Drs. Ancker, Singler and Darling were in attendance shortly after the blow was received and Dr. Ancker gave it as his opiuion that the man would die. He is about 60 years of age, and only three years from the old country. Ue is a widower with tive children aud an unmarried daughter, Barbara, lived with him. He has two married daughters, Mrs. Anthony Ball and Mrs. Redman McDon nell, both of whom live near him. He has two sons, Patrick, Jr., aud Michael. HOW IT OCCURED. John O'Toole was caring for the wounded man and gave some information regarding the affair. He said that Manning, who was quite well educated, had been down to his (O"Toole's) house to write a letter for him to the old country. They were on their way back and had got nearly to Manning's house when they heard a tumult in Cole man Gary's house which, is nearly across the street fnin Manning's. Tiiev stopped and heard a quarrel inside. Then several men rushed out still quarreling and drunk. Gary had a hatchet and was nourishing it in the air. Two of tiie men were trying to get the hatchet away frmn him, but he eluded them and struck Manning over the head with the •Capon, felling him to the grouud. They picked Mainiinz up and carried him into his own own house. Gary jumped over the fence and ran. He said that Manning and Gary had never quarreled but always got along well. Four or tive of Gary's cousins fioin Dayton's bluff, including one O'Don nell, had been sending the evening at Gary's and they had beeu having a high old time. O'Toole said that bis wife was a cousin to Manning. Ifn, Anthony Ball, daughter of the wounded man. who lives in an adjoining shanty, said she saw the blow struck: that her lather was standing in front of Gary's house when the latter came out and struck him with the hatchet without provocation. There had been no quarrel. Mrs. Ball was very reluctant about talking. Gary is a married man about 25 years old and has a child. His wife was seen last night and didn't seem to be much exercised over the trouble her husband had got into. The police captured two witnesses of the fight and took them to the central station. j They were then taken in the patrol wagon |to Dayton's bluff to identify Gary should he be captured. While at the bluff they gave the police the slip. Their names were not ascertained. Bartley O'Donnell was captured at the bluff. He said that he and liaiv and Josenu Carr and a man named Shearer were playing cards for the beer in Gary's house. They ' got to quarreling, broke up the game and | went out into the yard to fight Manning and a man named Connolly interfered to prevent the tight and Manning was struck with the hatchet. Gary was found In West St Paul by the police early this morning. ' The National Invalid. Washington-, April 4, — Secretary Man ning continues to improve rapidly. He is very much better to-night and it Is hoped that he will be able to sit up within a few days. Secretary Lamar and Attorney Gen eral Garland have almost entirely re covered, and are now able to transact de partment business at their homes, but their physicians will not permit them to go out while the present inclement weather con tinues. Representative Brown of Ohio is now out of danger, but bis recovery will be slow. _ PECULIAR JUSTICE. A Man Found Not Guilty Who Ad mitted His Guilt.

Creek more, charged with the murder of Michael Peters, his brother-in law, has just terminated at Van Bureu. The evidence against the accused was so strong that he expressed a desire to plead guilty to manslaughter at the beginning of the triaL The jury was out only twenty minutes when it brought in a verdict of "not guilty." Every one in the court room, judge, attorneys, prisoner and spec tators were for a moment speechless with amazemement Then murmurs of dissatis faction arose on every side, followed by threats. Creckmore was spirited away by his counsel, who feared that be would be taken out aud hanged. The feeling around Mauntainburg. where Peters lived, is rep resented as being at white heat over the verdict and threats of lynching Creekuiore are openly heard.

Chicago, April 4. — "People who think grain gambling is playing out in Chicago make a great mistake," said an oScial of tbe tele gi ap b campany. "Probably one-third of all our business in and out of Chicago relates to grain and stock speculation. We handle an average of 8,000 messages a day from the board of trade alone. Of course this enor ; mous business indicates that a great many country people are still gambling. That the •rural producers' are sot yet satisfied with their speculative experiences is quite evident. Why, no sooner is one town 'worked out' of read)* cash and confidence by the peripatetic and übiquitous broker th an be moves on to new pastures. Go where you will in this country, and I have been in a dozen states during tbe last winter, and In every town you enter you will find that tue festive broker is there ahead of you or that he has been there, and that there are mourners left behind with vacant bank books and depleted cash boxes. Even such far-away towns as Richmond, Va., have their leased wires to Chicago on purpose to speculate with. From Helena, Mont., wo handle forty or fifty speculative messages a day. from Colorado Springs and Pueblo nearly a* many, and tit leer, or twenty from Tucson, Ariz, i have noticed that after grain gamb ling once gets started in a town it never, or ut least rarely, entirely stops thereafter. It dwindles down to one customer for a time, j but pretty soon tbe spark blazes in a Same, and away it goes. When do I think grain and stock gam. will cease?

Word Picture of the Trials of the House- 1 keeper Drawn by the Rev. Dr. mi Talma^e. _ The Old-Fashioned Eelie:ion of Jesus Christ Urged as a Panacea for Home- Life's Bis. An Insight Into the Many Tribula tions of the Banker of the Household. The Glorious Change From the Roll lng-Pin to the Sceptre of the Ce lestial City. Dr. Tnl mace's Sermon* Special to the Glnoe. Brooklyn-, X. V., April I.— Talmage J preached to-day on The Trials of House- I keeping, taking as his text Luke x.. 40: "Lord dost thou not care that my sister I hath left me to serve alone? Bid her, j therefore, that she help me." Dr. Talmage , said: Yonder Is a beautiful village home stead. The man of the house is dead, and his widow is taking charge of the premises. This is the widow Martha of Bethany. Yes, I will show you also the pet of the household. This is Mary, the younger sister, with a book under her arm, and her face having no appearance of anxiety or perturbation. Company has come. Christ stands outside the door, and, of course, there is a good deal of excitement inside the door. The disarranged furniture is hastily put aside, aud the hair is brushed back, and the dresses are adjusted as well as, in so short a time, Mary and Martha can attend to these matters. They did not keep Christ standing at the door until they were newly appareled, or until they had elaborately arranged their tresses, then coming out with their affected surprise as though they had not heard the two or three previous Knockings, saying: "Why, is that you?" No. They were ladies, and were always presentable, although they may not have always bad on their best, for none of us always have on our best; if we did. our best would not be worth having on. They throw open the door and greet Christ They say: "Good morning. Master; come in and be seated.'' Christ did not come alone; lie bad a group of friends with Him, and such an DDUB OF CITY VISITORS would throw any country home into pertur bation. 1 suppose also the walk from the city had been a good appetizer. The kitchen department that day was a very important department, and I suppose that Martha had no sooner greeted the guests than she tied to that room. Mary had no anxiety about household affairs. She had full con fidence that Martha could get up the best dinner in Bethany. She seems to say: "Now let us have a division of labor. Martha, you cook, and I*ll sit down and be good." So you have often seen a great difference between two sisters. • There is Martha, hard-working, painstaking, a good manager, ever inventive of some new pastry, or discovering something in the art of cooking and housekeeping. There is Mary, also, fond of conversation, literary, so engaged in deep questions of ethics she has no time to attend to the questions of household welfare. It is noon. Mary is in the parlor with Christ. Martha is in the kitchen. It would have been better if they had divided the work, and then they could have divided the opportunity of listening to Jesus; but Mary monopolizes Christ while Martha swelters at the tire. It was a very important thing that they should have a good dinner that day. Christ was hungry, and he did not often have a . luxurious en tertainment Alas, me! if the duty Had de volved upon Mary, what a repast that would have been. But something went WMMra IK TIIK KITCIIEX. Perhaps the lire would not burn, or the bread would not bake, or Martha scalded her hand, or something was burned black that ought only to have been n:ri>le brown; and Martha lost her patience, and forget ting the proprieties of the occasion, with besweated brow, and, perhaps with pitcher in one hand and tonj.> i.i the other, she rushes out of the kitchen into the presence of Christ saying: "Laid, dust thon not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone?'* Christ scolded not a word. If it were scolding 1 should rather have his scolding than anybody else's blessing. Ho knew Martha had almost worked herself to death to get Him something to eat, and so He throws a world of tenderness into His intonation as He seems to say: "My dear woman, do not worry; let the dinner go; sit down on this ottoman beside Mary, your younger sister. Martha. Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things, but one thing is needful."' As Martha throws open that kitchen door I look in and see a great many household perplexities and anxieties. First there is the trial of non-appreciation. That is what made Martha so mad with Mary. The younger sister had no estimate of her older sister's fatigues. As now, men bothered with the anxieties of the store, and office, aud shop, or coming from the stock exchange, they say when they get home; "Oh, you ought to be IX OIK FACTOK'. a little while; you ought to have to manage eight, or ten, or twenty subordinates, and then you would know what trouble and anxiety are!" Oh. sir! the wife and the mother has to conduct at the same time a university, a clothing establishment, a restaurant, a laundry, a library, while she is health ofbeer. police and president of her realm. She must do a thousand things and do them well in order to keep things going smoothly, and so her brain and her nerves are taxed to the utmost. 1 know there are housekeepers who are so fortunate that they can sit in an arm-chair in the library, or lie on the belated pillow, and throw off all the care upon subordinates who, having large wages and great experience, can attend to all of the affairs of the household. Those are the exception. I am speaking this morning of the great mass of housekeepers — the women to whom life is a struggle, and who at SO years of age look as though they were 40, and at 40 look as though they were 50, and at 50 look as though they were 60. There is tne trial of severe economy. Nine hundred and ninety-nine households out of the thousand are subjected to it — some under more and some under less stress of circumstances. Especially if a man smok« very expensive cigars and take very costly dinners at the restaurants he will be severe in demanding domestic economics. This is what kills TEN'S OF Til V KM of women— attempting to make $5 do the work of ST. How the bills come in! The woman is the banker of the household; she is the president the cashier, the teller the discount clerk: and there is a panic every few weeks! This thirty years' war against high prices, this perpetual study of economies, this life-long attempt to keep the outgo less than the income exhausts millions of housekeepers. CM my sister, this Is a part of the divine discipline. If It were best for you. all you would have to do would be to open the front windows and the ravens would fly in with food; and after you had baked fifty times from the barrel in the pantry, the barrel, like the one of Zarepatb. would be full; and the shoes of the children would last as lons as the shoes of the Israelites in the wilderness —forty years. Beside that, this Is going to make heaven the more attractive in the contrast They never hunger there, and consequently there will be none of the nuisances of catering for appetites. And in the land of the white robe they never have to mend anything and the air in that hill country makes everybody well. There are no rents to pay, every man own 3 his own house, and a mansion at that It will not be so great a change for you to have a chariot in heaven if you have been in th« habit of ridiug in this world. It will not be so great a chance for you to sit down on the banks of the river of life if in this world you had a country seat: but if you have WALKED WITH TTRED FEET in this world, what a glorious change to mount celestial ' equipage; aad if your life on eaith was domestic martyrdem. O! the joy of an eternity in which you shall have nothing to do except what you choose to d<». Martha has had no drudgery for eighteen centuries! I quarrel with the theologians who want to distribute all the tnrones of heaven among the John Knoxes and the Hugh Latuners and the Theban legion. Some of the brightest thrones of heaven will be kept for Christian house keepers. O! what a change from here to there — from the time when they put down the rolling pin to when they take up the sceptre. If L bats worth park and the Van derbilt mansion on Fifth avenue were to be lifted into the celestial city, they would be considered uninhabitable rookeries, and glorified Lazarus would be ashamed to be going in and out of either of them. There are many housekeepers who could get along with their toils if it were not for sickness and trouble. The fact is, one half of the women of the laud are mure or less invalids. The mountain lass, who has never had an ache or pain, may consider household toil inconsiderable, and toward evening she may skip away miles to the fields and drive home the cattle, aud she may until 10 o'clock at night fill the house with laughing racket; but O! to do the work of life with worn-out constitution, when whooping-cough has beeo raging for six weeks in the household, making the night as sleepless as the day — that is not so easy. Perhaps this conies after the XKKVE3 HAVE BEEN SHATTERED by some bereavement that has left desola tion in every room of the bouse, and set the crib in the garret, because the occupant has been hushed into a slumber which needs no mother's lullaby. Oh! she could provide for the whole group a great deal better than she cau for a part of the group now the rest are cone. Though you may tell her God is taking caro of those who are cone, it is mother-like to brood both flocks'; and one wing she puts over the flock in the house, the other wing she puts over the flock in the grave. 1 here is nothing but the old fashioned religion of Jesus Christ that will take a woman through the trials of home life. At nrst there may be a romance or a novelty that will do for a substitute. The marriage hour has just passed, and the per plexities of the household are more than atoued by the joy of being together, and by the fact that when it is late they do not have to discuss the question as t» whether it is time to go! The mishaps of the house hold, instead of being a matter of anxiety and reprehension, are a matter of merri ment — the loaf of bread turned into a geo logical specimen: the slushy custards; the jaundiced or measly biscuits. It is a very bright sunlight that falls on the cutlery and the mantel •ruauents of a new noine. But after awhile the ROMANCE IS ALL GONE, and then there is something to be prepared for the table that the book called "Cookery Taufht'in Twelve Lessons" will not teach. The receipt for making it is not a handful of this, a cup of that, and a spoonful of something else. It is not something; sweet ened with ordinary condiments, or flavored with ordinary flavors, or baked in ordinary ovens. It is the loaf of domestic happiness; aud all the ingredients come down frem heaven, and the fruits are plucked from the tree of life, and it is sweetened with the new wine of the kingdom, and it is baked in the oven of home trial. Solomon wrote out of his own experience. He had a wretched home. A man cannot be happy with two wives, much less 600; and he says, writing out of his own experience: "Better is a dinner of herbs where love is then a staaed ox and hatred therewith." One of the most affecting reminiscences of my mother is my rememberauce of her as a Christian housekeeper. She worked very hard, and when we would come in from summer play and sit down at the table at noun. I remember how she used to cone in with beads of perspiration along the line of tray hair.and how sometimes she would sit down at the table, and put her head against THE WRINKLED HAND and say: "Well, the fact is, I'm too tired to eat." Long after she might have dele gated this duty to others, she would not be .satisfied unless she attended to the matter herself. In fact we all preferred to have her do so. for somehow things tasted better when she prepared them. Some time ago, in an express train, I shot past tiiat old homestead. I looked out of the window and tried to peer through the darkness. While I was doing so oi:>j of my old schoolmates, whom 1 had not seen for many years, tapped me on the shoulder and said: "DeWitr. I see you are looking out at the scenes of your boyhood." • % Oh, yes." 1 replied, "I was looking out at the old place where my mother lived and died, 'lha night, in the cars, ttowhoh scene came back to me. There was the country home. There was the noouday table. There were the children on either side of the table, most of them gone, never to come back. At one end of the table, my father, with a smile that never left his countenance even when he lay in his coffin. It was an eighty-six years' smile— not the smile of iuauiuiatidh. but of Christian cour age and of Christian hope. At the other end of the table was a beautiful, benignant, hard-working, aged Christian housekeeper, my mother. She was very tired. lam glad sho has so good a place to rest in. ■'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord; they rest from their labors, and their works do follow them." TIIIS WEEK IN CONGRESS. Comment on the Tardiness of Ap propriatlon -Hill*. Washington, April 4. — The business of the senate is substantially in the same con dition as at the beginniug of last week, with the difference that a vote upon the bill to increase the efficiency of the army is ex pected or hoped for to-morrow or Tuesday. The bill to admit the territory of Washing ton will next be disposed of, to be suc ceeded by the interstate commerce bill, and that in turn by the bankruptcy bill. Sena tor Platt will try to tird an opportunity to make a speech in favor of open executive sessions, and Senator Van Wyck will watch a chauce to call up the bill to tax railroad lands. It is probable that the Indian ap propriation bill aud possibly the pension ap propriation bill will be reported from the committee on appropriations before the end of the week. Ouly these two of the an nual appropriation bills have yet reached the senate, a tact which is com mented upon. At the corres ponding date of the preceding long session five of the annual appropriations had passed the house, two had passed the senate committee aud one had been sent to the president. The frae coinage bill is tke ! special order in the house for Tuesday, I Wednesday and Thursday. On the last meutioned days it is expected that a vote will be reached. Its consideration will, however, encounter the opp««iti«a of the postofnee committee, which will antagonize it with the postofnee appropriation bill. This measure was shunted off last week to secure a free track for the labor arbitation bill. An effort will be made to-morrow to pass the Mexican pension bil! under a sus pension uf the rules, and many members are down ou the speaker's list for recogni tion to offer motions to take up and pass bills for the erection of public buildings. | Attempts will also be made to-morr*w to , have days set apart for the consideration of the bankruptcy bill and the bill providing for the new naval establishment.

NO. 9 5 A DESIGNING- DOMINIE. ; How a Perfidious New Hampshire Parsox, Won a Blch Widow fora Wife, , Stole $3,000 of Her Money and Bond* Sold Her Furniture and Skipped to Boston. The Reverend Gentleman Arrested and Scared Into Returning Ills 111- Gotten Pelf. A Good Preacher and a Good Prayer- Maker, But Apparently a Moral Wreck. A Parson's Perfidy-. Special to the Globe. Boston. April 4.— Rev. William Ham mond, pastor of the Free-will Baptist | church at Franklin Falls. N. H., has got | into a queer scrape. His story is an inter j esting one. He was formerly a Roman Catholic and entered the priesthood. A few years ago he renounced that religion ' and became an evangelical clergyman. Last i September he was installed in Franklin 1 Falls and his ministry has been j quite successful. Among the mcm i bers of his church was a widow of Dr. Harrison W. Kockway. and it was not I long before it was noticed that the parson j took more than an ordinary interest in her. No one was surprised when later on it was announced that they were engaged, and some three weeks ago they were married. Upon the marriage license the ministers age was given as 50 and hers at 45. Within a few days after the marriage Rev. Mr. Hammond went to his bride, and by some pretext, as she says, got her to sitrn her name to a blank page in a bank book of the Franklin bank, where she HAD ON DEPOSIT 53.000. On Wednesday of this week he presented the book at the bank, with the woman's order signed in proper form, and was given the $2,000 in checks on a Boston bank. Having secured this his next step was to take possession of a Si. ooo bond belonging to his wite without her knowledge, to gether with a sum of money in her purse. He then went to a merchant in the village and told him that he and his wife were go ing to start for Europe at once, and that they were anxious to sell their house- ' hold furniture. The price was agreed upon, and the money was paid to the parson. That evening he went home and pretended to be highly of fended with his bride, telling her that he should not pass the night in her company, but he should go to the hotel to sleep, and then took his departure. Thursday morn ing Mrs. Hammond went to her purse for some money, and finding it empty, went to the bauk to draw a portion of her deposit. There she was told that it had all been drawn by her husband. Finding that some thing was evidently wrong, she at once consulted counsel.. It was ascertained that |he had taken the early morning train for Boston and OFFICERS WERE NOTIFIED to watch the bank upon which the checks had been drawn by the Franklin bank. The step was taken just in time, for as the officer detailed for the work stepped up to the bank counter . a women presented the checks to be cashed. The money was not paid. The woman was followed to the house of Mrs. Dr. Eddy, the well-known high prietess of the Christian scientists, the princiual branch of the mind-cure organi zation in this town. Thursday afternoon Assistant District Attorney Adams and In spector Richardson drove to Westchester park, where they left the carriage and walked to the vicinity of Mrs. Eddy's residence. After they had been there about ten minutes. Rev. Mr. Hammond and a young lady came out of the house and were walking briskly down the avenue, when Inspector Richardson tapped him lightly on the shoulder, and said he would like to speak to him. He .was then invited to walk to Weslchester park, where the in spector informed him that he was under arrest for robbing his wife. "Why," said the parson, '-she made over all her prop erty to me after marriage." He said that he had for some time been trying to have his wife move from Franklin Falls to either Philadelphia or Boston, where he intended to go into the drug business. He said that his wife was ADDICTED TO DRINK. and had seven barrels of rum in the cellar some time before be discovered it. He left Boston in company with Inspector Richard son on the 7 o'clock train. When they ar rived at Franklin Falls the parson tried to persuade the officers to allow him to see his wife, which they refused to do, as she gave orders not to let him come to the house, as she was afraid he would harm her. The reverend gentleman then requested to be allowed to get bail, which the officials refused. They told him that unless he gave up the stolen property he would be locked up. Rev. Mr. Hammond apparently did not like the idea of passing the night in a cell, for he told the officers that the money was in a safe belonging to Mr. Page, a deacon of his church. It was nearly midnight when the officers reached Mr. Page's resi dence, and on being told the object of their visit he opened the safe. In one of the pigeon holes was found A SEALED ENVELOPE, which contained the Si, ooo bond and the 000 in bills belonging to the parson's wife. The reverend gentleman was then allowed to remain at the deacon's bouse in charge of an officer. Mrs. Hammond, in speaking of her husband's doings, said that a few days atter they were married she suspected something was wrong, as the par son was endeavoring to have her sell all her property. '•He is m ■ third husband." she said, "and when I married him I thought I was getting' a prize, as he was an ordained minister. He is a goad preacher, a good prayer-maker and a yood family man all through." At this point one of the officers remarked that Baptist ministers "were about as bad as policemen." "Yes, I guess they are," replied Mrs. Ham mond, "lie wanted mo to move to Philadel phia, but as that city was so far away I did not agie? to that proposition. He then spoke about g-oiug to Boston, to which place 1 was willing to go." Mrs. Hammond appeared to be very bitter against her husband, and the friends of both are now endeavoring to effect a reconcilia tion. The wife is worth about 520,000. best OX RECORD.
