H. Dink, of Chicago, still refuses to become a civic federation skate. The Chicago council is a living picture with a moral painted upon it in scarlet. We may get even with those Eu ropeans yet. Edgar Saltus is to marry a countess. The two Dakota legislatures have adjourned. They should have thought of this sooner. It need not be taken for granted that because Hayward is convicted Blixt will stand any higher socially. The Empress Frederick of Ger many is trying to arrange for a trip to Palestine, but Robert G. Ingersoll isn't. Harry Hayward may be consid ered an unlucky gambler. He bet $10 yesterday morning that he would be acquitted. Georgia Bulletin: The fish are bit ing at a lively rate now. Mr. Cleve land, will you accept this as a tip to go further south? Harry Hayward was found guilty of murder on a Friday. There is a broad hint in the verdict of what he will get some other Friday. Congressman Buck Kilgore is to "be made a judge in Indian territory. Grover must have a grudge against Kilgore and has sent him among the Indians to become civilized. Highway robbers are terrorizing the people of Chicago. What Chicago needs most is to put up a Chinese wall and induce most of its regular ! residents to take up their habitat outside of it. An Eastern tariff paper has dis- covered that we ate $29,000 worth more eggs from Canada and Europe i in the last four months of 1894 than in the same time in 1893. This is truly * horrible, but it kept Mr. Foster, of Winona, from selling us eggs at a dollar an egg. Economy and retrenchment are the watchwords of the new adminis tration in the state auditor's office. The apropriation bill provides only about $15,000 a year more for Mr. Dunn than it did for Mr. Biermann. And at that it is getting off easier than the public had a right to expect. Ex-Senator Washburn's name is "mentioned" as a probable appointee by the president as a member of the international monetary conference. It will not get any further than this mention in friendly papers and the ex-senator will not be able to en lighten the foreigners on options as related to silver. It was the opinion of the Pioneer Press, after long deliberation, that the Minneapolis Tribune was foolish. After a protracted examination we had concluded that it was simply silly. Both were right. The parallel columning of the Courier-Journal's editorial and the Tribune's para phrase of it prove this. The Tribune is both foolish and silly. The sugar trust celebrated the de mise of a congress which dealt so kindly with it by declaring its regu lar quarterly dividend of 3 per cent. The statement that the dividend is free from the income tax is not in dicative of another discrimination In favor of the trust, but that the trust, 'after paying 2 per cent on its income, is still able to pay 12 per cent dividends. There is nothing quite so soft a snap as having Undo Bam for a business partner. Secretary Newbold, in confessing his peculations from the treasury of the American Church Missionary society, took the wrong course in urging in palliation the expenses of a large family. He should have boldly admitted that he concluded. from his observations, that money cent to convert the heathen was a sheer waste of it, and that it could be much better employed .in support ing in suitable comfort a large Amer ican family than in trying to save the souls of the natives of Borrio boola Gha. Such a plea would have had the support of public opinion. A JUST VERDICT. There will be found no two opin ions as to the accuracy and the jus tice of the verdict of the jury which found Harry Hayward guilty of the murder of Catherine Ging. The gen eral apprehension was that he would, in some way, go unwhipped of the justice he had outraged. So deep and wide was this feeling that, had the verdict been one of acquittal, the administration of law might have been disgraced by another in stance of the infliction of punish ment by an indignant populace. Happily, and to the credit of our methods of administering justice, this emergency has not arisen. The trial has been a notable one among those of its kind. The social position of the parties, the delibera tion with which it was planned and the methods used, served to give it prominence among the murder trials of history. In its elements it was simple, but the defense sought to becloud it and complicate it, proba bly as the only .possible chance of escape. The woman " was killed. Blixt admits he did it; that Harry hired him to do it.- Adry testifies that Harry told him of his inten tions before the murder; that he re-< monstrated and told Mr. Stewart of the plan. The motive was plain, the realization on the life policies taken out on her life. These simple ele ments remained clear through all the mist the ingenuity of the defend ant's counsel sought to raise about the case. They could not be ignored, and every juror's mind must have come back to them as the few clear, solid facts of the case. It is a reproach to our system of administering justice that such an amount of time should be permitted to be consumed in trying these cases. There is a natural desire to give the accused every opportunity to establish his innocence, and the re flection comes that it is better to prolong a trial than to give cause for just complaint of undue haste; but if lawyers were less anxious for notoriety, less smitten with a love for public posing, feelings fed by the morbid curiosity of the populace who throng the courts in such cases, the trials would be shortened with out any sacrifice of justice to the accused. But it were better that this trial should have been spun out to twice its length, if that were necessary to bring to justice this fiend who could proceed with such heartlessness, such ferocity of the beast, to plan the murder of a woman in order that he might obtain the money for which he had had her insure her life. Now that the defendant, after exhausting every possible defense, is found guilty, we trust that the progress of Justice will not be stayed, but that she will march on with steady, inexorable tread to the ful fillment of the law. No maudlin sen timentalism for the convicted should obscure the recollection of the ter rible crime which made his life for feit. —^»» ANOTHER EASTER X OITI.ET. AXOTHER EASTERN OUTLET. A movement in railway construc tion is under way in Eastern Wis consin that is of great interest to the shippers of the Twin Cities and of the Northwest, whose surplus prod ucts move to Eastern markets. It promises to secure for them during the winter months something of the advantage of the competition of the lakes during the summer, the clos ing of which by the frosts of winter is always marked by a sharp ad vance in rates. It has : long been a favorite idea that the long rail haul around the head of Lake Michigan might be avoided by a lake connection which would make almost an air line from St. Paul to Detroit. The Flint & Pere Marquette road was built with this as a part of its purpose. It es tablished a line of propellers to carry freight across the lake, but several obstacles have prevented the econo mical execution of its plans. There were large shipments of flour at one time by this route, but the expense of transhipment from cars to boat and again to cars made it unprofita ble. ••; Lately immense ferry boats . have been employed, built to take on an entire freight train, and so stoutly constructed as to be able to crush the ice that obstructed the way. But the western connection was at a point which became inaccessible in severe weather when thick ice formed, and for weeks the ferry boats have been unable to reach Marinette. ;'* •* Recently surveying parties have been running lines from Neenah and Menasha to Manitowoc on the lake, and, while the parties are secretive, it is surmised that they are engaged by the Wisconsin Central, and that its purpose is to build to the lake. It has no road into Milwaukee, and can secure none under a cost of sev eral million dollars, and its Chicago connections are not satisfactory to it for freight shipments. Parties supposed to be acting for the com-* pany have secured, by purchase or option, a large tract of land on the river very suitable for depot and freight grounds. The harbor is an exceptionally fine one, that of Milwaukee being the only west shore harbor equal to it. The Manitowoc harbor has the addi tional advantage of a projecting point on the north sheltering it from the northeast storms and ice fields. With boats constructed to crush the ice as these ferry freight boats are, there will very rarely be a day that the boats cannot make the harbor. When this connecting link of rail is built a trainload of freight can be sent by almost an air line from St. Paul to New York city, saving the roundabout haul either by the Soo or the head of the lake. The saving of time and the diminished expense give to this new movement an im portance that the shippers of the Twin Cities will keenly appreciate. — «•»« BULLETIN NUMBER TWO. State Auditor Dunn has just issued the second of the series of official bulletins, the purpose of which ob viously is to prepare the public mind for the adoption of his pet scheme of selling all pine timber on estimates and for a lump sum instead of by the thousand feet; to be paid for as cut, under the present system. And Mr. Dunn is not at all particular as to whose corns he treads on in the pur- suit of his design. The pine land committee, upon whose misrepre sentations he was boosted into office, is as ruthlessly consigned, to the THE SAINT- PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 9, 1893. £**M-hrii3a_t££k<teJKS-*fiaß^^ -v.. . . "A... .'../■ . /■ . " rack as are the late state auditor and the other obstacles which stand in the way of the- adoption of his fa vorite "idee." There is no doubt that Mr. Dunn's plan of disposing of state timber is, ' as he claims for it, the simplest one. No one except himself, the purchaser and the estimator will know any thing whatever of the transaction by .which the title to the timber passes from the state to the indi vidual. The estimator says there is a* certain amount of timber on a given section, the purchaser pays a certain lump sum for that timber, and there is the end of it. The pur chaser is not likely to buy it if it contains less than the estimator says, for purchasers of pine have a fash ion of making their own estimates, and the estimator, being , pervaded with the odor of sanctity which hangs like a Monday morning clothes line around the Republican auditor's office, would . not make a false state ment, although there would be noth ing more substantial than the odor of sanctity to prevent him from do ing so. Under the present system the au ditor, surveyor general, sealer,, pur chaser and estimator would all have to be "fixed!' before a fraud could be committed, for the timber must be sold and paid for by the thousand, and a series of mutual checks is pro vided for in the fact of the numerous parties to whom reports must be made. Under the plan advocated by Mr. Dunn the auditor would have ab solute, unquestioned and final., au thority to sell the timber outright, with no redress in case the estimates were erroneous. It is not at all unusual under the present system for the state to receive pay for ten times as much timber as the esti mate called for, and the only assur ance we have that the new esti mators would be more reliable than the old ones lies in the fact that Mr. Dunn selected the new ones, and in asmuch as his chief estimator was the main guy of the committee whose work Bulletin No. 2 denounces as imperfect and unreliable, there might be a suspicion that even Mr. Dunn has overestimated his estimator. There is every reason why Mr. Dunn should desire to cancel the con tracts now in force, and if the claim set up in the Shevlin-Carpertter case, that the state auditor was in no way responsible for the contracts into which he entered, is made good, there will be no difficulty in cancel ing such contracts. It is but meet and right that Mr. Dunn should have a whack at the public lands; else why was he elect ed? It would be the extreme of dis courtesy to him to elect him to an office which has been* from time immemorial the vantage ground for private speculation, and then, just as the fruit is within his grasp, to snatch it from him. True the reader of the pine land committee's report, if there is such a reader, will be sur prised to learn that there are 300,000, --000 feet of pine left to the state, and still more surprised to learn, through Bulletin No. 2, that the contracts for cutting this vast body of timber were let under the very noses of the committee, with lynx-eyed Dedon camping, ever camping, on the trail of his present job, and the watchful Staples hovering, like the incarnate spirit of reform, over the supposed ly denuded state lands and the al leged mismanaged office of the land commissioner. It is remarkable that Mr. Dunn should have chosen for the extremely responsible position of estimator, upon whose judgment the state would depend for every dollar it received under Mr. Dunn's proposed scheme, the guileless indi vidual upon whom such a game could be worked. According to Bul letin No. 2, while the matchless Dedon was skirmishing around over the marshes of Northern Minnesota locating the odd foot in a hundred million, the then state auditor was ladling out contracts for three times the amount involved in the original matter. under investigation. It will be a rude schock to the public mind to learn that this genius of the de parted Gaboriau has been buncoed in such a cruel manner, and it will shake the public confidence in the discretion of Mr. Dunn himself to learn that he would accept as final judgment the estimate of such a sim ple-minded person in a matter in volving so many millions of dollars. For fear of a general uprising, however, let it be stated that Bulle tin No. 2 is nothing more than the unsubstantial fabric of a dream— an official dream, but nevertheless only a dream. It, like the pine land committee's report, is only an array of glittering, tabulated generalities, the purpose of which is to get the public mind focused on a series of bogus abuses long enough for the state auditor to arrange his plans for a new departure which will enable him to emulate the example of his Republican predecessors in the same office, and reap from it the reward which logically falls to the lot of the faithful and successful Republican candidate. IN THE CAXNONJS MOUTH. Men have sought and found the bubble reputation in the cannon's mouth, but it was not the one at tached to Joe Cannon's person. Joe himself has been hunting the bubble in his mouth for many years, and thinks he has found it, and that its possession authorizes and . entitles him to let flow through that orifice into the channels of the Associated Press— sometimes an indiscriminat ing sewer— and out upon an unap preciative public, the stores of mis information he has gathered or in vented. Joe mistakes notoriety for reputation, and if his mouth gives him the former he is happy. The fact that cannon are often more dangerous in the breech than the muzzle finds no exception in Joe's case. There was a rebound from one discharge of that mouth of his that sent him back into pri vate life. It was so mephitic that even Illinois Republicans couldn't stand it. But the malodorous vapors soon rolled away, and Cannon and his mouth are back again in con gress. If there is any one thing in public affairs that Joe and his mouth are fonder of than another, it is the old soldier and his pension, espe cially the pension. There is a nat ural affinity in the relations of can non and soldiers which is sufficient to account for this, although at the time when that relation was very much closer than it is now, and soldiers were capturing cannon, and cannon were -slaughtering soldiers, this joecannon kept itself well out of danger, preferring to remain intact so as to be the defender of the old soldiers whom the fortunes of war might preserve as ammunition for joecannon in his political warfare. , And so it comes that Cannon BAY.eel himself and his mouth to belch forth denunciations of the heartless Demo crats who have shorn the pension appropriation of more than $4.2, --000,000 . that should have gone, by way of the tax lists, from the pock ets of the producers into those of the old soldiers who have convinced themselves and the bureau of pen sions that they are entitled to . the charity. This decrease, he says, is the result of the "unfriendly" ad- ministration of the law. With a courage entirely proper for a can non, Joe goes further and asserts that it is due to the "unjust admin istration of the pension laws under Cleveland." It does not occur to this implement of partisan warfare that the profes sional old soldier has been so pes tiferously insistent in obtruding himself ■on the public in demands for pensions and everything else, and has permitted himself to be so played by those other profession als, the demagogues, that he has brought himself into disrepute, and instead of being an object of venera tion by the generation that has grown up since the war, he is re garded as ah old bore, a smooth bore at that, and that, whatever of maledictions the late and unla mented congress merits, the fact that it has cut the appropriations $42,000,000 will be credited up to it as one of the redeeming acts of its exist ence. -.-'.. ;r. '*: There is the usual gap between the volume of words taken to describe the conflicts in what is dignified as a revolution in Cuba and the paucity of casualties. At no sfnall expense for telegraphing the world of news paper readers is told of an "engage ment" between the government troops and the rebels in a special, in which the correspondent labors to work in as much of the lurid as the affair can be made to hold, and the public, after wading through it all, learns that a corporal was wounded] or that two of the insurgents were captured, or, after a "fierce fight," in which "the government troops sustained no loss," the rebels fled with the regulars in pursuit. It may be a very important and serious af fair to the handful of men engaged in this latest effort to free Cuba from Spanish dominion, but it does not follow that it is of the same in tense interest to the rest of the world, and the effort to make it im portant by lengthy dispatches, cov ering conflicts resulting in casual ties but little worse than those at tending an ordinary, saloon brawl or street fray, only serves to make it ridiculous. It is really wonderful that the Pioneer Press never discovered how really stupid the pine land investi gating committee was until Auditor Dunn found that some of the rec ommendations of the committee would have a tendency to curtail the perquisites of the land commissioner. If the P. P. wants some really sub stantial arguments to support its present position upon the question of the utility of the pine land com mittee, it should consult the file of the GLOBE. When the Republican papers were bubbling over with maudlin praise of the committee, the GLOBE published a few wholesome truths, which might be used to ad vantage, now that the organs have seen the error of their ways. It remained for Ramsey county to furnish the butt of the, legislature this year. ; His name is Eli Warner.— Anoka Union. You're mistaken, Pease; Ramsey county had nothing to do with it.

TEXAS BILL'S DOG. The newspaper profession is not crowded with eccentric characters, and yet every now and then one will meet- .-a-*- newspaper man whose ways are as . odd as are those of the heathen Chinee. I have in mind the peculiarities of one I met in Seattle, a few years ago. He was a bright fellow, with a streak of peculiar wit j.hat made him very companiona blfci But he was eccentric, and among his eccentricities was a pen chant for bulldogs, cats and a big gunjf-one size smaller than a cannon. He was _ Texan by profession that is, Me claimed to have been born in Texas, and seemed to take delight in corroborating this claim by his style of dress and his custom of al ways carrying that big gun under the "ftelt of his trousers. I don't be lieve he would kill anybody, but he seemed to think he would on certain provocation, and I was never so overcome by curiosity as to feel in clined to make the test. I was will ing to accept his word for it—modi fied by my own doubts and mental reservations. We used to call him "Texas" for a time after he began working on the paper on which I was employed. The boys all noticed a familiar look about him as though they had seen him somewhere before, but they never could place him. We finally discovered that he bore a striking similarity to the caricatures of him self Bill Nye runs with his writings. This explained the apparent famil iarity of his face and make-up, and after this we always called him Bill Nye. j -".j '7.7'" Bill was a first-class newspaper man — I don't mean the original Bill, but his counterpart, "Texas." He earned a decent salary, but he was not overburdened with the acquis itive instinct, and when he finally got out of work, he was not very well fixed financially. Then economy be came imperative, and he went to room with another newspaper man named Moffitt, who had a room in a flat. They had not been rooming to- gether very long, however, when Bill picked up a cat on his way to the room about 2 o'clock one morning, and when he entered the room with the cat on his arm and the bulldog — which always followed him close at his heels, looking as sour as a fourth rate prize fighter, but wagging his tail to prove that his looks belied his temper, Moffitt was in bed. Bill, as was his custom as soon as he entered the room every night, pulled the big gun out and stuck it under his pillow. Then, after rubbing puss a few moments, he put her down on the floor." But scarcely had he released her when the bulldog made a spring for her, and puss made a spring for the washstand. The dog charged after her, and over went the washbowl and pitcher, covering the floor with broken pottery and flooding it with water. Moffit, startled at the uproar, raised his head just in time to see the cat and ..dog 'Both leap upon the foot of the bed. Puss was enough In the lead so that She reached the head and scaled ' the high headboard before the dog 'could seize her. Moffitt leaped out of the; bed with a bound and gave posses sion the bulldog. Who wouldn't? | "Meow — meow — meow— f," went the cat, as she sat on the headboard with ,a hump on, her back and watched the bulldog's frantic leaps, uncertain whether he was going to reach her or not. She glanced about to see if she .could j not discover some higher perch that would give her more assurance of safety,, but none appeared, so the best she could do , was just sit and mew, arid jerk her back up a little higher and assume a threatening aspect every time the dog made a leap. ! "Bow-wow— bow-wow,"" went the bulldog, as he would back off toward the foot of the bed and then make an- other charge for puss. Moffitt had been so startled at first that ho could not realize what had happened for a minute. But after he regained his self-possession, he grabbed the big gun from under the pillow and swore he would kill the dog if Bill did not call him off. But Bill was enjoy- ing the thing as a huge circus. He had laughed himself almost Into a fit and paid but little attention to what Moffitt said. "I mean what I say. I'll kill that d— dog, so help me—, If you don't take him out of here." yelled Moffitt. as he stood in his nightclothes, pointing the gun at the canine. Just then the door opened, and there stood the landlady in her nightclothes trembling with fear. The whole house had been aroused and the hall was filled with men and women in their night robes, expecting to see a platoon of police emerge with half a dozen bloody corpses. Finally Bill called his dog down, took the cat under his arm, stuck the big gun under his belt and retired to find quarters where a fellow might enjoy himself without being Interfered with. It Is needless to say that he and Moffitt did not room together any more.' * i Horse lv a Trance. Washington Star. "I saw a singular case down In Flu- J vanna county, Virginia, not long ago," said S. G. Barrow, a traveler for a Bal timore wholesale house, at the Metro- politan last night. "It was nothing less than that of a horse in a trance. I heard of the matter when I was at Gordonsville, and Inquired about it when I reached Fluvanna. I was di- rected to the farm of an Englishman named Sudlow, and, as it .was on my route, I stopped there. , - "The owner was away, but his over- seer showed me the animal. He was a fine looking animal, as far as I could judge; from seeing him lying on the floor of what had been a fead room, and he seemed to be healthy and asleep! There was no sign of breathing, how- ever, and I could perceive no heart ac- tion whatever. I was assured that the horse had been in that condition lor over two months, and had never given any sign of life since he had first" been found, in his stall, but that a slight Incision in the gums would at all times bring fresh blood. The horse was a favorite of his owner, and he will be kept until he recovers his energy or does the" other thing beyond any ques tion of doubt." , -r:~qc j -- 0111 Dainty 7 UsA_«j'v-rear. i Dainty I i-iin-n-ciir. 1 Ladies' underwear is now chiefly made, for ready-made sale at least, in lighter- weight fabrics than formerly.

Public Institutions Receive the Biennial Boost From the State. MR. DUNN GETS THOUSANDS Republican • Auditors Come High, but We Must Have Them. IT MAY YET BE HELD UP. Considerable Dissatisfaetic Expressed Over Extrava gant Items. The general appropriation bill was introduced in the house of repre sentatives yesterday.and foots up the neat sum of $788,000, in round figures. This amount is for the support of the state government for the next two years, and a pretty liberal support It allows, for some of the depart- ments at least. The state auditor's office, for instance, is allowed about $45,000 in addition to the standing appropriation for the payment of all salaries and incidental expenses of the office. The bulk of the appro- priation goes to the state institu tions, providing for improvements, current expenses, etc. The usual $40,000 appropriation is made for the publication of the laws in the news- papers of the state. The appropria tions are made in detail as follows: Section 1.

There is special ob jection to the exorbitant demands of State Auditor Dunn, who asks for about double the amount ever before allowed the state auditor's office and there is not a little chuckling in Dem ocratic circles over the form* assumed by Mr. Dunn's peculiar style of econ omy. Two years ago the state au ditor was only allowed $7,500 for esti mating and selecting state lands, when it was necessary to select some 300,000 acres to fill state and railroad grants. These grants are now all practically filled, there is no available public lands from which to select, and yet Mr. Dunn asks for $20,000 for this purpose. With $7,500 Auditor Bierman selected 273,000 acres of land to fill the Great Northern grant, be sides the selections which were made for the state. With practically no se lections to make, this bill allows Mr. Dunn, as will be seen by the above items, $20,000 for estimating, scaling and looking up trespass, besides the four Items of $5,000 each for selecting lands for various purposes. The bill will probably pass, purely as a party measure, but it will meet with some vigorous opposition, even from Republican members, when it comes to the consideration of some of the items. •— » A CRUSmi^BLOW. A CRUSHING BLOW. The (ilrDs Father Had Changed Clock- on Him. Detroit Free Press. Macallister Mcllhenny had been danc ing attendance on one girl for a whole month, and as he was very careful he was doing splendidly. He restrained his impetuosity, talked business and and the price of gas and fuel, and went home every night by 10 o'clock, timing himself on this by the girl's father, who always came down at that hour to wind up the clock in the hall, and knew that the caller moved ac cordingly. But ill-luck always attends Macal lister Mcllhenny and something is al ways happening to break him up. The last night he called he noticed that a new clock had the place of the familiar one that had been a sort of mascot to him, and he intended to ask about it, but the girl was so nice to him that it entirely escaped -his mind. He chatted on and on, never thinking about time or eternity, only trusting, in the unconscious way we have, that at the proper time the old gentleman would wind up the clock and restore him to consciousness. Thus it was that Macallister Mcll henny took no note of time. What the hour was he never knew, but all at once he was recalled to him self by the old gentleman's voice, and he stopped suddenly. "Marie, Marie," said papa in a hall pleading, half angry voice, "why didn't you tell Mr. Mcllhenny that that "new clock was an eight-day clock?" It was a great blow, a crushing blow to Mr. Mcllhenny, and once more are his emotions shrouded in gloom. How English Girls Develop Jaw. An English weekly speaks of gun. chewing as an American custom which has been introduced into tha mother country, and states that £800,000 or $4,000,000 worth of the jaw-exercising commodity is consumed annually. The crude gum is imported from Mexico, and probably 3,000,000 pounds is used every year, while not less than 9,000 pounds of sugar Is assimilated in the process. >~N \4 f I Hw fllii/l I rr„*,-ai3:i:i;.3-i:.-.::, j..-.,,' .7. i ". r_3i-a3antasr*-**ia::*i_i6i:s*iJLi;iL--:is. fyjm \A Milo a./£_TRA.Fitic 2%%? * f- <r 3 w/ i .

DIED OF A BROKEN HEART. So the Key. Dr t'eikie Says In ills History of Jesus. Jesus died, literally, of a broken heart. This is the opinion of the Rev. Dr. Geikie, the most entertaining his torian of the life of tin- Savior. Hi-; death on tho cross occured sooner than was usual In crucifixions. lb- was In the prime of life and weakened by pre vious ill-health. There is no record of any physical ailment in his life. The mingled floW of blood and water from the wound caused by the spear of the Roman soldier points unmistakably to another explanation than crucifixion In the opinion of medical men. The im mediate cause of his death appears, in the same opinion, to have been the rupture of the heart brought about by mental agony. "Excess of joy or grief is known to induce the bursting Of some division of the heart and the consequent flow of blood into the peri cardium or bag, filled with color!, serum, like water, in which the heart is suspended." Eminent medicals au thorities say: "In a death from heart rupture 'the hand is suddenly carried to the front of the chest and a pierc ing shriek uttered.' " The hands of Jesus were nailed to the cross, but the appalling shriek is uttered. «a» A Labor .\oic. A i.-ibor Note, Texas Siftlngs.

"Why, my dear, are you so inter ested?" "Because, papa, George has only been staying four hours every even ing, and he told me last night if you favored the eight-hour system, he needn't go home so early. You dear old papa, I am so glad you are In favor of it," and she wrapped her soft white arms around his neck and choked off all explanations. «Q» — One of I be Xew Coats.
