The gospel of little things is that by
which we live. When a great trouble
conies, or a great happiness, it seems to
overshadow else, and like a
fatal wound jo deaden the feelings by
large doses of either joy or pain so that
everything else is forgotten. Not so
with little frets, little hurts; they brine
iio compensating strength to enable one
to bear them, but, as a woman in the
Philadelphia rimes writes:
li isn't the Irreat big^orrow or finian
cial knock-down that hurts so much as
the little disappointments that come
into the lives of all women. The pin
pricks are more painful than the stab
wounds, because they arc so much more
frequent. Somehow a woman will brace
up against the tidal wave of affliction
when she permits her soul to be worried
out of her by the constant dripping of
minor difficulties.
To a man these disappointments seem
so trivial- lint to a woman they mean
so much that cannot be told, yet which
wounds and leaves its mark at every
turn. It may only be that she has
planned a liJtle excursion, which falls
through at the last moment. It may be
that the husband fails to notice the
kindly act of; preparation for his re
turn or neglects to praise some dish
especially made for him, or he lets an
anniversary go by without even an
extra kiss to mark the event— in fact,
there are so. many little disappoint
ments that come into the evety day life
that sound so small on paper, yet which
hurt so cruelly in reality.
One cautt explain them. They are a
matter of the heart rather than of the
reason, and (t is oniy a woman who
would feel them so grievously. Wom
an's nature is an enigma past
finding out and man's an equally diffi
cult problem to solve, and until the one
has a keener insight into the other the
daily dlsipointmenja will continue to
annoy and the little troubles prove
liioae vexing than the irreat ones.

HER BRIDAL TREASURES.
A Carious and Pathetic Story of a
Broken Kngagcment.
San Frencisco Argonout
"Speaking of broken engagements,"
remarked a young girl to an Argonaut
man the other day, "makes me think of
a funny story. A friend of mine
was expecting to be married, and
had everything ready but her gowns.
All the table and bed linen was
hemmed and marked and put away in
lavender, while dozens of tray cloths,
doilies and bureau scarfs were made.
She had even prepaeed a large supply
of all kinds of house cloths for win
dows, silver, etc., and had put away six
rolls of linen bandages in case any one
should cut a fineor or sprain an arm.
AVeii, the engagement was broken, and
what do you think she did with all
these thiugs upon which she
had lavished so much loving
care? She made a bie bonfire in the
bacK yard, and upon the flames, started
by means of a match and an old oil
barrel, she heaped her treasures. Never
did vestal virgin feeding the sacred
fires on ancient Roman altars make
more fervent vows than did this nine
teenth-century maiden, when sacrific
ing her dainty linen in the hope of
assuaging her heartache.
**Tnat all happened some years ago.
On a cabinet in her own room stands a
large jar which people declare contain
the ashes of her heart and of her bridal
linen cremated together ou that fatal

A DUEL TO THE DEATH.
Boston Glc!)0.
It is well known that during the revo
lution there frequently cxi sted great
bitterness between the families of
Whigs aud Tories, and thac, when the
state of the country was such as to irive
neither party more than a temporary
ascendancy, these antagonistic feelings
sometimes" vented themselves into open
hostilities.
In one of the upper counties of Vir
ginia there lived two families, named
Belcher and Mason, who, during the
progress of war, became deadly ene
mies—the former being stanch Whigs
and the latter Tories.
The family of Belcher consisted of
five persons— father, mother, two sons
and a daughter. The senior Belcher
was a gray-headed man, verging on
fifty, very lame in one leg; his two sons
were stout youns: men, in the prime aud
vigor ot life, and his daughter was a
comely lass of twenty.
At the breaking. out of the war the
sons unlisted in the American army, and
were offered commissions, which they
accepted— the elder a captaincy and the
younger a lieutenancy— alter which, for
three long years, they only came home
once on a short furlough.
Eleven months had passed since their
last visit, which brings us to thu date
we wish to present to notice.
The family of Mason also consisted of
five persons, the father, mother and
three sons, tha youngest an invalid.
The father was a* h.ile, stout man of
forty-five, and his lirst and second sons
were like him, and the three were much
given to dissipation.
The distance between the two families
was a little over two miles; but their
respective houses beiniron two different
roads, the heads o£ them seldom met,
except in tlie village, where both weut
to transact business.
At the beginning of the events wo are
about to relate. Mr. Belcher, being ac
the village referred to. was accosted by
Mason, who had been drinking freely,
and \vas in a quarrelsome mood.
Some harsh words passed between
them and Mason struck Belcher a vio
ieiu blow, knocking him down.
"You know 1 am no match for you
physically, and therefore your act is
cowardly 1" said Belcher, as he slowly
'regained his feet.
"1 know you are a coward and that
nothing can make you fight, not oven a
blow?" sneered Mason.
"Richard Mason," returned the other,
solemnly, "1 have never wanted your
blooa upon my head; but after what has
this day occurred, 1 feel myself com
pelled to demand satisfaction."
"You can have it as soon as you
like."
In less than a quarter of an hour
each man had selected his friend, and
the preliminaries of the duel were set
tled. Thu principals were to light in a
little hollow just back of the village,
with lilies, at thirty paces, to lire any
time after the signal, and to continue
an exchange of shots till either one or
both should be killed or satisfied.
'•Either you or l have got to die this
time '"said Mason to Belcher with a
i savage growl.
j "Perhaps both?" returned the other
I solemnly.
A duel in those days and that section
was a more peculiar affair than in later
I limes, and a large crowd immediately
| repaired to thu ground to witness the
bloody contest.
In less than an hour the principals
stood tace to face, rifles in hand. The
signal was given aud both lired to
gether.
Belcher remained firm, the ball of his
adversary barely grazing His cheek, but
Mason fell, shot directly thnrtr?+* the
brain. The Tories were for killing
Belcher on the spot, but a few de
termined friends quickly closed in
around him, and succeeded in escorting
him away in safety.
The corpse of Mason was borne home
to his family, and no sooner din liis two
sons learn the particulars of his death
than they swore to have a dark and
bloody revenge.
Belcher knew what he had to expect,
even before being informed of the
threats of the young men, and lost no
time in putting his house in the best
state of defense possible under the
circumstances.
He had two rifles of his own, and he
borrowed two more and had heavy fast
enings added to all his doors and win
dows, besides which two young men
volunteered to come secretly to his
dwelling every night after dark and
remain till morning, and all the male
negroes on the place were required to
sleep under their master's root.
One dark, rainy night, a little before
12 o'clock, Mr. Belcher heard two horses
stop before his door, and immediately
there followed some quick, loud raps.
• "Now for it!" he muttered, as he
sprang from his bed, took down his rifle
and proceeded to rouse the two young
men sleeping in the adjoining room,
while his wife and daughter, clinging to
each other, were ready to faint with
terror.
"Who is there, and what is wanting?"
at length demanded Mr. Belcher wlien
all was ready— the knocking having
continued at intervals and each succes
sive time growing louder.
"We are your sons, father— George
and Frederick!" replied a voice which
ali recognized.
"How am 1 to know you are my
BODS?"
"Why, father, don't you know my
voice?" said the son who had spoken
before, in a tone of surprise.
"Perhaps 1 do— perhaps I don't" re
turned Belcher "Let me hear Frederick
speak."
"Well, father, how do you do— and
why do you use these precautions?" im
mediately said another voice that cer
tainly souuded very much like the
younarer son's.
"Only one proof more, for which 1
will immediately give you a good rea
son. Just tell me how you both are,
and botli of you just name your birth
days."
For a few inomeuts there was uo

reply, and then the voice of the elder
said:
"Father, this is trifling with us after
our long absence and long rido tonight.
We are hungry, wet and weary, and
pray do open the door at once or refuse
us altogether."
"There is no doubt about them being
our children. David," said his wife.
"Then let them answer my question,
which Is simple enough, and whould not
have required half us many words as
have been used to get rid of it," re
turned Belcher.
"If you refuse after this 1 shall be
quite as certain you aro impostors, aud
you will not get into this hoUS^with my
consent."
"Then we'll get into it without your
consent," responded a different voice
from any before heard; aud immedi
ately there was a tremendous rush
against the door, as if by three or four
men.
The fastenings had not all been re
moved, and the door was not forced; in
another moment the bar was in its
place, holding it firmly.
Finding themselves foiled in forcing
the door, the assailants resoived to set
tire to the dwelling.
Meantime Mr. Belcher, comprehend
ing their design, had, with his brave
assistants,repaired to an upper window,
where, as soon as the flames should get
under way, he hoped to trot a sight of
the villains, which he succeeded in
doing.
The three brothers were first dUcov
ered, standing near together, and, giv
ing some low, rapid orders to his com
panions, Mr. Belcher and the two others
lireu together, with such precision of
aim that each of the brothers dropped to
the earth.
Seeing this, and being terribly sur
prised to linu tiiree rifles doing their
duty where they had supposed there
was only one, tile other three men dis
charged their pieces at the window from
which the powder smoke was issuing,
and then, mounting the two horses in
terrible haste, rode swiftly away, leav
ing their companions to their fate.
Tiie people in the house rallied forth,
extinguished the flamed and examined
the wounded assailants, only one of
whom, the youngest, was found to be
alive, lie was taken into the dwelling
and cared for, but his wound was mortal
and he died before morning.
.Neither Mr. Belcher nor his family
were molested again, and he lived to see
his sons return in triumph from a war
which laid tiie foundation for the final
freedom of all mankind.
MINERS 3IAY STRIKE.
The Trouble Over liie New Kan-
sas Mining Law.
PITTSBUKG, Kan., May IS.— All the
miners, about 0,000, employed in the
shafts of the Cherokee coal field will
probably go out on strike to
morrow. Notice was posted sev
eral days ago. The trouble is
over the new Kansas coal mining
law. The old law stated that the miners
were to be paid so much per ton after
the coal was screened. The new law
says they shall be paid before it
is screened. As the Cherokee coal is
soft and makes much slack, the mine
operators say they cannot pay the
prices demanded. This will be the
first strike among coal minors in
Southeastern Kansas. In anticipation
of a lonsr shut-down and to supply the
demand in the meantime, the mine
operators have about 1,500 cars of coal
side-tracked between h<ne and Kansas
City.
Tokonto, Out., May IS.— The conven
tion of railway telegraphers spent today
in considering proposed amendments to
the constitution and incommitte. There
was nothing of public interest in the
proceedings.
NEGRO APPEAL
For Aid to Suppress Ijyaohins in
South Carolina.
Colombia, S. C, May IS.— The rep
resentative negroes of South Carolina
met in the state house hall to day.
They were from all portions of the state,
every county being represented.
Among those present were Congress
man George \V. Murray and Fred
erick Nix, of Barnwell. A series
of resolutions were introduced in which
lynching was condemned and an appeal
made to the humane people of the. state
to aid them in suppressing any attempt
to violate the law by lynching. They
also appealed to the governor.wnq is op
posed to lynch law, to use all his con
stitutional power in crushing out this
evil, and leave the result with God and
their fellow citizens.

"spot" and "push" strokes barred.
Too Late lo Register.
roKTi-AXD, Or., May IS. — Twelve
Chinese called today at the internal
revenue office, and expressed a desire to
register. They were refused.
Quebec, May IS.— The recent spring
storms have caused a great deal of
damage in this city and surrounding
country. At He-dleyville and St. Koch's
cellars are flooded and much prop
erty has boen destroyed. The
Quebec & Montmorenci railway at this
point is a total wreck and the damage
will amount to many thousands of dol
lars. At Grand River thousands ot
dollars' worth of logs were swept away
by the breaking of dams. At Bay St.
Paul the viliaate is almost completely
inundated. Tun houses were destroyed,
and many valuable animals drowned.
TERRIBLY INCREASING,
The Authorities of the Board of
Health Give Some Important In
formation About She s* rose ut Con-
diliun of the People.
At uo timp in the history of Xew York City
Lave there been so many deaths from pneu
monia as now. The otlicial iieures show thai
nearly twice as many ileuths from this cause
are occurring than for the last five years.
This ii something terrible.
Dr. John T. Nnele. Registrar of Vital Sta
tistics, says that this increase is due to the In
fluence of grip. He says that trrip may be
called epidemic just now, and that iv the
majority of cases grip is a vital, contributing
cause to pneumonia and all dangerous pul
monary troubles. At this time of the year
when we are changing over from winter to
spring, there is always a low oraer of vital
ity; a reaction from the strains of the season.
The blood does not flow so full nor rapidly;
the streusth is less. For this reason grip haß
a much better chauce than at any other sea
son.
This is a time of year when people need to
be careful, and too much importauce cannot
be placed upon keeping the blood warm and
in circulaiiou. You must bring about a re
action if you wish to avoid the pain and dan
gers of these troubles in time. There is but
one way by which a reaction can be brought
about, anrl that is by the use of a pure stimu
lant, preferably whiskey. But the great diffi
culty is that there are few whiskeys which
are pure. The only really pure and reliable
whiskey known to the medical profession or
the world is DuhVs Pure Malt. It possesses
qualities known only to itself. It will bring
about a reaction and prevent cold, pneu
monia or the grip where many so-called Stiflji
ulants would fail. It hassaved more lives
and relieved more suffering than anything
of a similar nature which was ever Jeuowq
before to Uie world.

NOT ALL. OF ONE KIND.
Several Able Opinion Molders of
the Gentler Sex.
There are many notable names among
the women who are at present the
guests of the St. Paul Press club, and
members or guests of the International
League of Press Clubs. Women seem
to take to journalism as naturally as to
many other things that uot so very long
ago wer6*considered the especial prov
ince of men. And that they are suc
cessful in it is proven by the uame3 of
such women as "Sally Joy White,"
whose name 13 a household word wher
ever the Boston Herald is known. The
woman's department in that paper has
received the sincerest Kind of flattery,
that of being imitated and copied, with
or without credit, according to the con
science of the user, even so far West as
away beyond St. Paul.
Mis. White is president of the New
England Press association, and is a
clever writer on many subjects. She
is an enthusiastic believer in women
and an ardent friend of all the meas
ures that tend to enlarge and- ennoble
woman's life in every capacity. Mrs.
White is accompanied by a charming
young daughter, who boldly declares
that she would rather endure the pangs
of an unbecoming dress than to have to
write an article for publication.
The Buffalo Express is well repre
sented as to its woman's and social de
partment by Miss Helen Lacy, who has
never yet been able to explain her po
sition or success as a bright newspaper
woman by any preconceived liking for
tiie work, aud her success since, as she
says,she drifted into it, has been as com
plete as it has been gratifying to her
self and her friends.
Pittsburgh delegation is a very choice
one, though the women of the party
docry any claim to being newspaper
women in the strictest sense of the
term. Mrs. Keen an comes as the guest
of her son, T. J. Keeuan, of the Pitts
burg Press, and is well posted on news
paper matters, a bright talker, a close
observer and an enthusiastic American,
who disapproves of secret societies or
anything else that, according to her
Quaker training, may have a tendency
to weaken the hold that national honor
and patriotism should have upon all
citizens.
Miss Helen Winslow.whose latest book,
"Salome Carpenter, Keformer," was
lately reviewed in the Globe, is one
among the brightest women who are in
the city today. She is the editor of the
woman's department of the Boston
Journal and a smaller paper, called
Comfort. Miss Winslow is the ideal
literary woman in appearance, being
above the average height, with a deli
cate face and soft, serious, blue-grey
eyes. Her manners are charming and
her voice delightful.
The typical Southern womeu are Mrs.
Gordon, of Atlanta, Ga., aud her niece,
Miss Louisa Bigbee. Mrs. Gordon is a
free lance in the field of literature, con
tributing to the Atlanta Constitution
and various magazines in the South as
well as at the North. She is a fair ex
ponent of the new South, and 6ayß that
tlie feeling of bitter animosity once felt
there for the North has died away with
the fleeing years. And what lew people
know is that the first steps in this recon
ciliation and refraternizing were the
work of women on both sides of the
line. Miss Bigbee is a beautiful girl, as
well as an exceedingly intelligent one,
and by her winning personality carries'
captive, and even chained at her
chariot wheels, all masculines from
lisping boyhood to dignified old age.
She is a charming singer and has aided
by her gift in making the impromptu
entertainments that were held in each
car on tho journey out as delightful as
they could be.
Mrs. Aille Whitiker, of the New Eng
land Fanner, is another typical repre
sentative woman. Beside the work she
does on her paper she has done a great
deal in organizing clubs among the
farmers' wives and daughters for wom
an's purposes, cooking clubs being a
specialty.
Mrs. Barbara W. Laplin is not only a
newspaper woman in the ordinary sense
of the word, but beside this '19 the busi
ness manager of the Somerville Journal
as well as its editor.
Mrs. Eliza Archaid, who has charge
of the farm, dairy and stock depart
ments of the American Press, is also a
very bright and attractive woman, whose
life jroes to prove that a woman may be
in newspaper work, and in departments
that are not usually given over to her
control, and yet be so beautifully wom
anly that to see her is to admire all she
does.
The very first woman's department
of a daily paper was started as an ex
periment some years ago in the Toledo
Blade, and Mrs. Emily S. Bouton was
put in charge of it. That it was a suc
cess the hundreds of papers which de
vote some space to subjects of especial
interest to women clearly demon
strate, and the credit of "that suc
cess belongs to Mrs. Bouton. Mrs. Can
sior, who has the name of being the
brightest speaker in that club of bright
women, "Sorosis," is as charming per
sonally as she can be as a talker, and
her delightful manner would easily win
harder hearts than she is likely to en
counter anywhere in the West, where
women have a wider swing than in the
more conservative East, and can do
about as they please, providing they do
it in a pleasing way.
Miss Davis accompanies her brother.
William Davis, of the Pittsburg News
league. She is a pleasant woman with
the full soft voice that the smoky city
seems to encourage, a believer in the
pride that springs from success won by
honest effort, and a confidence in ttfj
ability of Pennsylvania to accomplish
what she sets out to do that is delichtf ul
to one who has moved about until she is
not able to tell just where she docs be
long or what she believes.
Miss Maria Parloa, of cooking school
fame, has done more to make economy
popular among those to whom it should
be a necessity than any halt-dozen other
women the world has ever seen. She
looks a fair exponent of her own
theories, provided always that she lives
up to them. Poorly-fed Americans who
are dying of inanition amidst profusion,
should begin to save their pennies at
once, so that when she is done with net
work here she may have a monument in
proportion to the debt of gratitude they
owe. She is our guest also.
Mrs. Wauirht, of the Buffalo Courier,
is a beautiful singer, and is gracious
with her gift, and so makes happy
many hours that otherwise would be
heavy for her fellow travelers.
Aniong the many incidents of the
journey, one mysterious event was
often referred to. This was the disap
pearance, or rather the dematerializa
tion, of Mr. Meefcins, whose non-appear
ance at the time of leaving Chicago
produced among his friends a sort of
"tho' lost to sight, to memory dear"
sort of feeiling, that was only quieted
by his appearance in corporeal form
when the train reached St. Paul.
Among the ladies at the Pres3 club
yesterday morning appeared a kindly
man with serious visage and dignified
mien, a sort of "l'll-be-your-brother"
air, that would have deceived the very
elect, and the shock produced by a
revelation of his identity can more read
ily be imagined than described.for would
you believe it? this serious person was

shocks than any other funny man. His
worK does not seem to wear on him at
all. aud no oue laughs so heartily at his
jokes as he does himself.
C. W. McMurran has the distinction
of being the only man who has sur
vived all the decapitations, all the ex
plosions, all the earthquakes, all the
cyclones for which the World is famed,
and which cause the staff of the paper
to change entirely about once a month.
F. C. Barber is the youngest man in
the delegation, probably in the conven
tion. He is a Georgiau by birth, an In
defatigable ladies' man, a tighter of the
typical Southern style, a brilctant writer'
of magazine specials, and a poet whose
contributions to Truth, Puck, Judge,
Harper's and the daily papers have
made him -a name. On the train from
New York he sustained his reputation
as a Lovelace by at least five narrow
escapes from duels.
Charles W. Price, "the handsomest
man in the convention,'' according to
the ladies, is not only editor of the
Electrical Review, but is a recognized
authority on all matters pertaining to
electricity. He used to stick type, but
studied electricity, and is today a big
uiau iv scientific circles.

THE NKXT OFFICERS.
Numerous Able Gentlemen Con
sidered by the Committee.
The committee on nominations held
a meeting yesterday evening at 6 o'clock
in the club house. Nothing was done
In tha matter of nominations, however,
although a number of Lames were men
tioned and discussed. It is expected
that the ladies will De given another
representative ill the selection of offi
cerst as tb-ey have seven clubs in the
league out of a total membership of
twenty-seven clubs.
There seems to be a sentiment iv
f^vor of giving representation to St.
Paul among the officers, and it is ex
pected by the members of the St. Paul
clubs that tnis city will be given a vice
president, and, perhaps, one of the
members of the executive committee.
It Is probable that Mr. Price will al
low his name to be proposed for the po
sition of secretary and treasurer tor the
coming year, as "there 19 considerable
pressure being brought to bear on him.
The committee on nominations ad
journed until this morning at 9 o'clock,
when It will meet in the rooms of the
rooms of the Press club. The commit
tee on site for the next convention ad
journed until this morning at 10 o'clock.
Tonight's Banquet.
There, will be a large attendance at
the banquet this evening at the Ryan.
It will not be an evenins dress affair,
for the reason that a number of the del
egates neglected to bring their dress
suits. Prior to the banquet there will
be a number of interesting numbers on
the programme of ehtertaiument.among
them being a reception to the visiting
ladies in trie club house. The bauque
will commence at 9 p. m.

ATLANTA. IS LIKBD.
The Next Convention May Meet In
Georgia.
It Is expected that the next location
to be sa'ected for the holding of the
convention will be Atlanta, Ga. Mrs.
Gordon, one of the brigntest members
of the delegation, is on the committee,
and it is expected that the city which
she represents will be the 0110 selected.
There is a leaning on the part of so me
of the members of the committee to
wards Toledo, but it is not thought that
selection will be made of tlmt city. Mrs.
Gordon is a sister of Senator Gordon,
and she has made her na me known
throughout the United States by her
clever writings. In a recent issue of
the Review of Reviews her portrait was
published, and, while it was a very ac
curate representation of her features,
her intense personality and her charms
of manner could not be reproduced on
paper. She will make a strong iiglit for
Atlanta as the next convention city.
Mrs. Gordon received telegrams all
day yesterday from the citizens of At
lanta, the governor of the state, and the
editors of the newspapers. All of the
missives state that every effort should
be made for the securing of the conven
tion for the beautiful Southern city.aud
it is probable that such will be the re
sult. The prospect of a trip South
during the coming winter is looked for
ward to with delight by the delegates
and their constituents, and it is probable
that when the name of the Georgia city
is called to the attention of the conven
tion it will be accepted^ unanimously.
The South has an a'Gle champion in
Mrs. Gordon and if it is in the power of
the delegates to confer a favor on her
by responding to her request for the
next convention in the city which she
represents, it will be undoubtedly
granted.

TOLKDO'3 CLAIMS
Will Be Strongly Presented for
the Next Convention.
Toledo offers some strong induce
ments for the next convention of tho
league. Mr. Balles, chairman of the
committee on location, has been em
powered by his club to ask for the next
meeting. The Toledo trip, as outlined,
includes a reception of the dele
gates at Toledo, a trip to the
Ohio oil and gas regions at
Fiudlav, and a steamboat ride to
beautiful Put-In Bay island.
"The idea of the club," said Mr.
Ballis to a Globe reporter, "is to have
the sessions of the convention held in
the great Hotel Victory at the island,
so that the convention will really
be held there. No place in
the country can compare with
the Lake Erie archipelago for
the delicate beauty of the scenery.
There are to be trips throuch the great
wine cellars, to Perry's cave and to
Point Pelee. Toledo people will take
care of the delegates in great style.
We have a strong press club, and it was
one of the first to joiu the international
league. It has been represented in
every convention of the leamio. Laat
February, the Press club, in four days,
raised $1,500 to entertain the league del
egates on the train returning from Cali
fornia. The money was spent, and the
delegates were there only from ';> o'clock
in the morning to '6 in the afternoon.
That's the sort of people we have up
there, and we want the next conven
tion."
