It Is one of the misfortunes of life !
that happiness is dependent upon ti i ties I
—born ot" trifles, if you will- the tritlcs (
over which we have no control. A cup \ {
of muddy coffee, an overdone chop—
A n-.ist and a tiding rain.
Ami life is never tlio same again.
Yon are the wife, and women make j
the home, fife wife means the Jove and
the sunlight and the atmosphere- nt the
home. Then,- perhaps, you think you !
are the cornerstone.
Vain conceit!
The cornerstone of the home is laid j
always with expectant hearts. As it is j 1
customan to preserve sentiments within j j
it, every home maker buries in the 1 (
heart of il the love and the hopes that j
will make it endure. Titles to earthly ■
possessions are also placed within it,
and the substance is supposed 10 fortify
the sentiment, and the home is built
upon a rock. Sow, Fate comes to the
laying of the cornerstone, and when no
out' is looking the venomous old dame
Blips some other people into the corner
stone, and they rub against fie sub
stance and the sentiment, They wear,
ton. You learn about them later on.
One or these people is— well— who
keeps the household machinery in run
ning order? Who litts cares from yohr
own shoulders? Who sweetens the
-temper or the master of the house? Who
holds the happiness of the entire house
hold in the hollow of one hand and is
all-powerful to dash it into fragments
at a moment's notice?
Who, indeed, but the cook? says a
writer in the New York Recorder.
Perhaps you do not ajrree.
Have you ever noticed a street clock
that has run down— how it seems to ef- .
feet anil mar the enterprise of the j
whole vicinity? In th. 1 same way does |
the deserted culinary department trans
form me entire house, until the very t
wails cry out in their deserted, for- l
saken condition. When the cook leaves
tin- wi:< els ot the* home are motionless.
The clock has run down.
Naturally, if you are a spirited worn* '
r.n. you rebel against the decree of <
Fate, and you assume the "reins. No
tiilie like tl;at shall triumph over you. '
With arms akimbo you survey the situ- !
at;o;i, and ;ou stride forth to conquer. ,
irately, you know how to cook. <
You dash about the kitchen for two j i
limit's in preparing the even las meal. ' '
Victory is yours. The man for whom ■
the meal is prepared saunters amiably !
in at the usual hour, and smilingly be
comes your vis-a-vis. Well- may lie
smile. His fingers are not smarting
from recent contact with red-hot cook
utensils. His eyes are not tilled with
smoke: his hair is not redolent with
beefsteak. He has no perspiration on
his brow, no dust on his shoulders, no
smut on his face, no rebellion, no resig
nation, toleration, desperation in bis
breast, lie tan afford to smile— and
then he will tell you how his mother
cooked. Your cooking is sure to re
mind him of hers— because it is so dif
ferent.
The sentiment of life is eclipsed by the
achievements of the cook.
You know fate slipped her into the
corner stone when you were not look
in ir.
The other adversary who conspires
against your domestic happiness is the
butcher.
You pin your faith to the butcher,
lie is such a sleek. rosy, smiling, oblig
ing, prosperous individual* Against ail
precedent you still believe in him. You
give him your new, round, shining sil- I '
ver dollars in exchange for what he j <
chooses to send you. You implore him. j j
with tears in your eyes, to mend his ,
ways, and give you value received, and
you believe in his modest regrets and ,
promises- you are such a credulous per- I ;
son— when you meet the enemy you do j
not rccotrnize him. He advises you as
to your purchases and you accept li is
generous advice. It all looks so inviting
— the clean meat, block, the juicy beef, .
the box of tempting hickory skewers, i
the sheet of alluring suet, the encour
aging smile of the slaughterer, and then |
when the roast is served on your table
his testimony is all for naught.
The bead of the. house frowns upon it, j
inquires what it is supposed to be, cuts !
it the wrong way of the cloth, and you,
in your helpless dismay, hi. Men down
back of the coffee urn— miserable cul
prit that you are— wish in your heart
that it were the smiling butcher about I
to be carved up into infinitesimal slices,
instead of the base evidence of his tri
umph over you.
The butcher and the cook— two nat
ural family adversaries! You meet in
combat and they triumph over you.

WHAT TO WEAR
Some Hints as to tlio Correct
riiiiii; iii Woman's Dress.
Opaline crepon makes an exquisite
evening dress. The goods aru entirely
new, mul with every movement shades
111 vibrating waves of the most delicate
tints imaginable of lemon-color, blue,
pink, green and silver. The whole, at
rest, seems to bo only a light cream
color. :■-
Box-plaited velvet neck ruches arc
now fashionably worn with street
dresses.
Among the new French color combi
nations are pale blue and heliotrope,
maroon and sea-green, and browns with
greens of various shades.
All the fine nightgowns are made of
nainsook ami other sheer cottons.
I'liere are striped silks in plenty
wide stripes shaded, pink fading oil' into
frreen or brown, brightening Into rose.
Poplin forms a pretty ami at present
n fashionable material for a bouse gown,
a sudden fancy having developed itself
for this material, whether In silk poplin
or wool.
Short skirts for the street are now the
only correct thing, both, in style and
reason.
In laces there is a reaction in favor of
scallops, fern points, rose points and
others against the straight-edged varie
ties so loiw used.
The ruffles OH the fashionable petti
coats increase in number, some of the
new models being ruffled inside as well
as out.
Use for Sauoerteoa Cup=i.
An idea evolved by an ingenious
woman whoso dainty tete-a-tete set lo.st
both its saucers was to tie the two mate
less cups togethei with a bow of fancy
ribbon and convert them to the service
of used aud unused matches.

Land of the Setting Sun.
Oh. sweetheart mine. In the long ago, „
When our lives had just begun.
We sailed away nt the break of day.
To the Land of the Rising Sun.
We taw Hie heht on its beach of gold.
On iis valleys cool and fair;
We heard the" song of the happy birds,
Bat we might linger there.
For our boot was bound to another shore.
And our rest might not be won
In the Land of the Rising Sun, my dear,
In the Laud of the Rising Sun.
Oh. sweetheart, now in the gloaming gray,
Is our work forever dove.
For this is the end of our journey, dear,
Ami the Land of the Setting Sun.
The liubt is faint on the dark'ning way,
Where the ev'iiim,' shadows creep:
But Love keeps watch in the silent world,
Aid his gifts are peace and sleep.
So our boat neel Eaid to no other shore.
And our goal at lust is won:
For this is the end of our journey, dear,
Aud the Land of the Setting Sun.

A NOVEL IN*A NUTSHELL.
Horley Roberts In London Sketch.
Shu was a plain little body, with no
pretensions to any other beauty than
t^iat which abides for ever with a kind
heart and gentlo thoughts; and her
mind and heart were one. Like a brood
ing hen, with her world beneath her
wing, she would have been content to
live tor those children of her dreams
that were never to be born. Still a
young girl, she hoped for a life, wait
ing in patient apprenticeship till free
dom and sweet bondage should come at
once, till she could understand love and
live so that she should die in the at
taiued peace that rises from natural
fulfillment.
And in the long twilight of morning
expectancy Maggie Wyatt tended an
other woman's children on the banks of
the Australian Murray, just where it
ceases to foam and fret, where it prom
ises to widen and grow deep so that it
may bear burdens, oven as those do
who drink its waters until another cup
is offered them.
She loved the children and was pa
tient with them. It pleased her toTcnrn
their ways; their mother trusted her,
for she looked calm and sweet. To one
who might have known her she would
have been sweeter, as sweet even as the
golden wattle that crowned the spring.
But among the men there none knew
her worth : they were busy with other
things. Nor, iudeed, had she seen
among them even the semblance of her
dream. Yet the shadow of it came at
last and worked with the others of her
long year among the hills.
lle'was a tall young fellow of nine
teen, not handsome nor ugly, but quick
and strong to learn what work came to
him. As yet, for all his youthful fancies
oi great precocious knowledge, he had
not even the capability of learning the
hearts of women. That was, perhaps,
to come, but he loved the horses anil the
lonely mountains, and the aspect of the
quiet streams and the colors of bright
birds. But soon the others saw and
smiled. „ .*.
. "Maggie Is very fond of Jack Seaton,"
they said.
But it never occurred to Jack for one
moment. lie was so busy in his new
country. * ■.'•-
They lived under the same roof, for
he was learning the ways of the sheep
that browsed upon the hills above them.
So he often heard her voice as she spoke
to the children. But he never knew
how beautiful a voice it was. And
sometimes when she spoke to him or
answered he saw her eyes. But he
never saw their beauty, though the.
beauty that grew into them was for him
alone. No others ever said they were
lovely. If he had looked upon them in
some* far year when he had learnt good
and evil and was very tired he might
have known. But now he was but an
ignorant child. "
One day, it was Sunday and summer,
he asked her if sh| would walk with
him to the shed where they sheared
the sheep. It lay through two gates,
and was half a mile away. She walked
exalted, but with downcast eyes, trying
to believe she was with her lover, not
being satisfied to know she was with
Love. Jack talked of horses and the
past shearing, and the tricks of sheep,
and the sea, and of England. She knew
lie was only a boy, and though she was
a full year younger she felt so strangely
old. For the woman who loves is as
old as the race; she has borne the
world's children. But Jack was very
young still. , . ,
They went through the wool shed
and In' the big door. They sat down in
the heavy shadow that was shot with
blazing sun rays that pierced the worn
and broken roof. Outside the light
beat upon brown grass and the barren
sheep yard. Stray locks of wool grew
odorous" in the heat. Just where they
sat was the mark of a snake that had
crawled by a week ago— for the dust lay
heavy there. Then a puff of wattle
scent grew about them ; the cooler hills
had breathed upon the plain. ■ ■
"How beautiful the wattle smells,"
said Maggie.
"1 smell the sheep yolk," answered
Jack, with a smile. And he talked of
his dog.
As they went back she took a tiny
branch of* wattle and gave it to him. He
smelt it and dropped it as he opened
the garden eate for her. Then he went
to his room and wrote letters home.
She sat by the river all the afternoon
with the' children. But her eyes were
on the river. Would her life stream
ever broaden?
••Perhaps." she said, and smiled.
But the summer passed and the win
ter and Maggie went back to town to
live with her sister. It struck her to
the very heart to see how little Jack
troubled. It pleased her so -that her
heart stopped beating when he said he
might soon see her in town.
"I will 'write and tell you where I
live," said Maggie.
She wrote him a letter. She wrote
him many, but only one was sent, and
that was not answered for a long time.
When Jack's answer did come he had
seen as little in the timid little word as
he had seen In her timid eyes. For six
months he had heard no more. But
then he went down to the town, that
was only forty miles away. .
One afternoon as he sat under the
veranda of his hotel he saw a young
woman pass who was dressed in mourn
ing. Sne looked at him absently as she
went by. and it seemed to him that he
vaguely remembered her face. He
asked the townsman who sat near him.
"It's Miss Wyatt," he was tola.
Next day he met the same girl In the
street, and stopped. Raising his hat he
snitl *
"I think you are Miss Wvatt? Might
I ask how your sister is? 1 knew her at
Tumut." . , ,
She threw one quick glance at him,
and then tears filled her eyes.
"You are Mr. Seaton?" she said. And
it was Maggie's very voice.
"Yes," answered Jack.
"Maggie is dead," said the girl, and
then she wept bitterly. "Walk with me
a little way, Mr. Seaton."
And without saying anything at all
Jack went with her. They came at last
to a little house set back behind a rose
garden. "I cannot ask you in, but wait.
Maggie left a letter for me to give you.";
And Jack leaned against the fence
and waited. Maggie's sister returned
in a minute, and as she came down the
path he saw Maggie again for. a little
space.
"She died a week ago. And, Mr. Seaton,
perhaps you didn't know, but Maggie
loved you very much." f
Then, though he could not see the
sister, he saw Maggie and heard her
voice
"How beautiful the wattle smells'"
"I am sorry, 1 am sorry," said Jack.
"Don't be sorry," said her sister;
"good-by !"
And he read the letter in the road:
"I am dying, and you won't be angry
with me, Jack. For I loved you. . Good
by. lam triad that you should know.
Maggie."
And then Jack remembered how beau
tiful she was. He wished that he had
kept that spray of golden wattle blos
som which he*nad dropped by the gate
he had opened to let her pass through.

Aid. Franklin created a ripple of ex
citement at tho special meeting of the
board of aldermen last night by calling
the attention or tho members to the fact
that hail a do/.ttn of the school teachers
lived iii Minneapolis, and only visited
St. Paul during school hours. The
meeting was called tor the purpose Of
passing tin: February pay roliol tbe
teachers and employes of the school
board. Only eight aldermen were pres
ent, just enough to pass tho roll if all
voted in the affirmative. The resolution
ordering the wurnuil drawn f0r|88.120.40
was read and lliu namesof the aldermen
were being called by Clerk Prendergast
in tin: usual manner when Aid. Frank
lin stopped tho proceedings, lie said
he intended to voto for the passage of
the resolution, but he hud been informed
there wen: half a dozen teachers whose
names appeared on the pay roll that re
sided in Minneapolis. The only reason
that he would vote aye was that the roll
might not be hung up and a large num
ber of teacners kept waiting tor their
salaries. In view of the fact that the
comptroller had refused to pay em
ployes ot the health department living
outside the city, he thousrht an investi
gation should be made and all depart
ments treated alike. Aid. Con ley in
quired if the gentleman from the Sixth
ward was correct In his statement, and,
on being answered In the affirmative,
changed his yotu to no. This would
have prevented the pay roll fioin pass
ing, but Aid. Conley was induced to
voto aye, and tho chair announced the
resolution passed, and the meeting ad
journed.
Just what will be done in the matter
is bard to tell. The council last fall
adopted the report of tiie "economy"
committee, which contained a recom
mendation that no person not a resideut
of the city be allowed to draw salary.
Acting on this the comptroller refused
to pay tlie salaries or two employes in
the health department. Health Com
missioner lloyt appeared before the
aidt'inianic committee on ways and
means last week and endeavored to
have that portiou of tha report regard
ing non-residents repealed. To back up
his argument he had Corporation Attor
ney Lawler give an opinion on tho sub
ject Mr. Lawler sain tho council had
no legal right to pass such a resolution
or report, and even if it had been passed
it had no weight. lie said the council
could not by any legislation it
iniulit enact affect the laws of the
legislature. In a number of the de
partments the heads were allowed under
the charter to appoint assistants with
out continuation by the council. The
health department, he saia, came under
this provision. The opinion, however,
did not cut any ice with the committee,
for Aids. Copeland, Montgomery and
Zimmerman said if the law did not say
non-resid'jnts should not be paid, it cer
tainly oualit to. They further said the
council would not repeal the recommen
dation, and advised the employes not
paid to bring suit and recover it they
could. The charter under which the
school teachers are appointed places
their appointment with the board of
school inspectors, and under the opinion
of Corporation Attorney Lawler the
council cannot by any resolution pre
vent any teachers from receiving sala
ries. The comptroller, notvever, will
undoubtedly do the same with the teach
ers as he did with the health depart
ment employes, and refuse to pay those
who do not reside in the city.

shortly after noon, having in* custody
Louis Kiichli, who is charged with
shooting Fred Stauke at Centerville. a
station on the St. Paul & Duluth road,
about sixteen miies from Still water.
There being no direct communication
between this city and Centerville. all
facts obtained here on the evening after
the shooting affray were from parties
who came from there. When young
Kiichli was brought here yesterday he
was taken directly to the county jail,
and was almost overcome with grief.
Sheriff Marty realized the young man's
condition, and refused to allow reporters
to interview film. He claims that the
shooting was dons in self-defense, and
the young man's character having hith
erto been above reproach, people ac
quainted with the facts are disposed to
believe his story. Stanke's condition is
extremely critical, and although he ral
lied somewhat Monday night he is grad
ually sinking, and there is only a very
slight hope of his recovery.
Judge Crosby presided at a special
term of the district court yesterday and
listened to arguments in the case of J.
H. Lee &Co. vs. K. L. Hall & Co., which
was brought to enforce payments otf a
claim for merchandise amounting to
SSOO. In November, 1888, Charles L.
Clegg, a confectioner on South Third
street, left home and placed his wife in
charge or his business. He claimed at
the time that he was only going away
for his health, and would be back soon
thereafter. He disappeared, and noth
ing has since been heard from him.
Mrs. Clegg attached the property for
her wages, amounting to ovei $1,000,
and Judge Crosby tiled, an order yester
day granting the claim iv lull.
Charles M. McCluer is expected home
today from a trip East.

A Dangerous March.
Chihuahua, March 14.— The secre
tary of war has ordered the Eleventh
regiment of cavalry of the Mexican
army to make a march through the very
heart of tho turbulent Yaqui Indian
country. Besides the danger of being
completely exterminated by Indians,
the regiment must make one of the
longest and most difficult marches ever
undertaken in Mexico. The entire line
of march will cover about 1,000 miles.
Good Things
I Never Die
Among the good things that
help to make enjoyable our
puddings, creams and pastry,
which have been used by
millions of housekeepers for
years, is Dr. Price's Delicious
Extracts of Lemon, Orange,
Vanilla, etc.
There flavors differ from all
other extracts in their manner
of preparation, quality of
fruit used, their freedom from
all injurious substances, their
superior strength and delicate
and agreeable taste. One
trial proves their worth.

An English Lord Ends His Life
' in tins Indian Territory.
PARIS, Tex;, March 14.— Word comes
here from the Arbuckle mountains of
the dentil of Lord Herbert, an English
nobleman. Tlia last few years of his
life were spent under strange circum
stances. Some yean since a man still
in the vigor and prime of manhood came
without announcement into that por
tion of the Indian territory. In an un
frequented spot lie built a log hut. Day
after day ho wandered about
hunting and fisliniL'. in the conn
try, the home and refuse for ]
many fugitives from justice, he
was looked upon with suspicion. One
day to a young man who mentioned
these suspicions to him, he stated that
be was of the British peerage, and that
at home he wus known as Lord Herbert.
This was told, and fop— three years he
had been known by that name. Last
week, a party of cattlemen well ac
quainted with the place, and the hab!ts
of the hermit, rode by and noticed his
horse standing by the fence, whinnying
and tho dog lying in front of the door
Whining piteously. One of the party
got down and went in and found the
man rolling and turning in his bed, de
lirious and dying. The next day he
died, and the cattlemen buried him near
Uis cabin.

FOUND A FORTUNE.
Pleasant Surprise for a Wander
ing Hoosier.
Hi >,n\<rroN, Ind., March 14.— After
being thought dead for twenty years a
man turned up here yesterday to claim
a fortune that had been awaiting its
owner. In 1872 John S. Graves went
West. From the time of his departure
nothing was heard of him. After he
had been gone some time his relatives
made an effort to locate him, but did
not succeed. Aftet several years had
elapsed, without any tidings. Graves
was given up for dead. Four years ago
his uncle, Jesse Griffith, died, a bach
elor, leaving 5000,000. One of the
heirs was missing, John Graves.
Attorneys started a new hunt for him,
and newapaiMtrs the country over ad
vertised for him. Over a hundred per
sons answered claiming to be John
Graves, but in each case the fraud was
detected. Finally Graves was legally
presumed to be dead, and an adminis
trator appointed upon the estate. The
property was all turned into cash. Yes
terday Graves appeared here, after an
absence of twenty-one years. He had
not heard of his uncle's death. There
was no trouble in proving his identity,
lie has been all over North and South
America in business and also as an In
dian teacher. He is now located in
Washington.
HALF A TOWN IN ASHES.
Incendiaries Start a Destructive
Blaze at Polk City, 10.
Dcs Moixks, 10., March 14.— Nearly
half of the little town of Polk City was
burned this morning. The fire was of
incendiary origin, starting in the North
western dppot. The town was without
fire protection, and in answer to tele
phone call to Dcs Moines the entire de
partment went on a special train. Their
prompt action was all that saved the
other half of the town. The Chicago &
Northwestern depot and large elevators
were among the buildings burned.
Something to Be Proud Of.
The complimentary sentiments ex
pressed by the Hon. Thomas li. Bryan,
of the Columbian exposition, in refer
ence to the magnificent limited train
service between Chicago, St. Paul and
Minneapolisa.re but the publicly uttered
similar views of great multitudes of
other American citizens who have jour
neyed between the Twin Cities and Chi
cago via the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul railway.
We are a great people, who demand
and obtain the best of everything which
can be purchased with money, and the
railway companies of the United States
—particularly of the West— are quick to
respond to the desires of the iravcliug
public.
In no part of the world are there more
superbly equipped electric-lighted and
Bteam-heated vestibuled trains than
those which run every day between St.
Paul and Minneapolis and Chicago via
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul rail
way.
Long Overdue.
Vancouver, B. C, March 14.— The
sl)ip Morashiere, laden with raw sugar
for Vancouver, which left Java Oct 22
last, is still due. Nothing has been seen
or heard of her since she lefc Java, anil
grave fears are entertained for the
ship's safety. Ninety days is consid
ered a long run from Java to Vancouver,
and the Morashiere has been 142 days
out. There is little reason to hope that
she will be seen again.
