BESSEMER, COLORADO. CURRENT COMMENT. ‘‘Her Last Lover" is the title of a new modern love story. It is supposed to be the sequel of about fifteen pre ceding volumes. The Duke of Veragua and the Princess Eulalia, who are the guests of the nation, have made themselves very agreeable and have put our uu sophisticated officials at their ease. Apropos of the many bank suspen sions of late it is interesting to note the fact that when a bank hasn t the money to pay its depositors they want it. but when it has money they dou't want it. pßor. WIOOINS, the Canadian weather prophet, has decided to make no more predictions of earthquakes, floods or cyclones. If Foster would follow his good example we might now live in peace. Princess Kulalib having fully explored the wonders of Washington aud sampled the President's larder, has betaken herself to New York, where she will receive the homage of all the personal friends of Columbus. Mrs. Bradlkt Martin expended $(50,000 on her daughter s wedding and it lasted only fifteen minutes. Four thousand dollars a minute is rather a costly exhibition of social standing until one considers that the public paid $125,000 in presents to see it. When one considers the afflictions of the country occasioned by the ran tankerousuess of Miss Phccbe Cousins it is a question whether it would not have been better to have dispensed with the World's Fair altogether. She has made life a burden to most of the other officials. A stage company has just started a coach line from Chicago to Jackson park The coaches are drawn by western horses, driven by western stage-drivers of the old school, and if Chicago thugs don't arrange to hold some of these vehicles up en route they will miss the romantic oppor tunity of their lives The sale of Mr. Ruskin's works, it is said, is his only income, and a great part of that goes to an army of pen sioners to whom in the days of liis wealth lie pledged himself —need) relatives and friends, discharged ser vants and institutions in which lit took an interest at some time or an other. As a result of the many ariticisms made upon Colorado's exhibit in tho main building at the World’s Fair, the state board of commissioners has ap pointed Irwin Mahon a special agent to collect an exhibit of minerals to bo displayed in the Colorado building Suitable specimens should be prompt ly sent to him at the Sheridan Build ing, Denver. The Woman’s Congress held at Chi cago last week was a remarkable affair. Hundreds of intelligent women who have won honor in many walks of life met to discuss a variety of matters of great importance. The subjects that received attention were not treated in a school girl fashion, but were han dled in away to win the admiration <>f all who were present. It is a satisfaction to note that Judges are coming to exorcise more au thority in dealing with imbecile or dishonest jurors. A ease of tho kind occurred in a Chicago court recently when Judge Ewing discharged a jury which had acquitted a prisoner who was clearly guilty, with these word-: [do not understand how such a ver dict could be reached after hearing the evidence. You have shown your selves incompetent to justly try eases between the state and defendants, and I therefore discharge you from further duty this term. The colonial possessions of Europe an countries have a particular interest for the United States at the present time. An eminent French geographer declares that ( Jront Britain to-day owns 28,935.(109 square kilometers of for eign territory—a kilometer being a little over six-tenths of a mile: France. 6,905,411; Germany, 2,403,520; Bel gium, 2,241,250, and Portugal. 2.203.- 320. The population of the British colonics is estimated at 245.641,000, the French at 41,440,000. the Belgian at 14,100,000, the Portuguese at 14.- 213.000 and the German at 5,113,'000. Probably one of the most lasting results of tho Woman's Congress held in Chicago recently will be the influ ence on woman's dress. The subject was under discussion during four clays and not only was dress reform dis cussed but illustrated. Ladies ap peared in all sorts of costumes that varied more or less radically from the conventional styles. It lias been the case heretofore that the words dress reform conveyed an idea of "bloom ers, ” but nothing could be further from the truth. Many of the reform costumes are models of grace as well as coinfort, if the reports from Chica go can be relied upon. Ai/rntraon there is a great rush of Colorado people to Chicago this year, there is no danger that the beautiful resort of Glen Park will be entirely deserted. The Chautauqua Assembly Association has arranged an admirable ■is weeks' course of entertainment aud instruction which will greatly enhance the attractiveness of this well-known resort The Assembly will open July ISHh.

Ouc thousand telegraph operators ou the Chicago «S Northwestern railroad struck on the 22ud.

The Spanish government has declared a five days' quarantine against all vessel* arriving from Cette and Hamburg Spanish consuls In France report cholera prevailing In Cette. Mediterranean port. Several eases have ended fatally It appears that the president is unwilling to permit Senator Allison to terminals tils ser vices as a member of the International Mone tary Conference, In spite of the senator’s oft expressed wish of so doing, and the senator may yet consent to serve.

Gold and silver bullion will, however, be received for parting and refin ing. There Is eonslderale talk in Nicaragua about getting the United .States to establish a protectorate there. It Is argued that the American people, having a great deal at stake in the chip canal undertaking, have an Inter est In maintaining order In that country. There Is a strong undercurrent of feeling in favor of annexation or a protectorate, and It Is said that In Guatemala there Is also much annexation sentiment.

HOW HER LADYSHIP SUFFERED. Tha Dewager Dashes* of latharlaad Rataasad from Jail. The Dowager Duchess of Sutherland, who was sanleuocd on the eighteenth of April lost by Sir Francis Jeune, In the Probate division of the High Court, to pay ti fine of £250 and i to be Imprlsoued for six weeks for having destroyed a documsnt which she was per- ' mltted to cxamlue by order of the court, aud which related to tbe pending contest over the l will of the late Duke of Sutherland, was re leased on the 2Uth from Holloway prison, I where she had been confined os a first-class I misdemeanant.

Honored l»y a Grand Review of tlie Cadets. On Monday the lufantn F.ulallr visited West Point. The day was an ideal one for a trip up the Hudson. Precisely at 10:30 the steamer Monmouth, all decorated with the Spanish and American color*, drew out from the pier at the foot of West Thirty-fourth street. She waa saluted by the war ship*, and w ith all tbe band* playing the Spanlah national air, started on her trip to West Point. A loyal salute was tired on the arrival of the party at the Point, uliere the Infanta was met by the officers of the post aud by an escort of cav alry. At Gol Ernest's tbe princess met Mr*. U. 9. Grant. The prluccss expressed much pleasure at meeting the widow of the great commander, whom she had met at Madrid. The great event of course was a grand re view of the cadets, who were first drawn up at dress front lu two long Hues, reaching nearly tbe length of the plain. The prlucess, escorted by Colonel Ernest, and followed by ber suite, walked down the entire length of gray-coated soldier boys. They made a line appearance lu their natty dress uniforms and close ranks.

American soldiers are to use the Kragli- Jorgenscn rifle, unless the Secretary of War interpose*. United States troop* will be armed within a few months with magazine rifle* of that make. The Board of Ordnance and Fortifications In session at tbe World's Fair grounds has reached that decision. It declares In effect that American inventors have not yet made a magazine rille which can compare with this model of foreign skill. If approved by the Secretary of War. the decis ion will settle a controversy that has lasted nearly two years, and n* a result #400.000 will be expended In the national armories in the manufacture of these rifle*, the royalty of course going to foreign Inventors. To Do Away With Money. Gyrus Corning, at one time one of the lead ers of the Populist party In Knnsas. Is tbe originator of a scheme whereby he hopes to do away with money and its attendant evils. H.s plan Is to establish exchange- In the dif ferent pari* of the state to take the place of tbe ordinary store. The purchaser can trade whatever commodity he has for what he wants In the store's stock, or he can take checks in exchunge which will be honored at any exchange. The farmer can also deposit hla money with the exchange, and checks will be loaned, secured by collateral wlthont interest. Bush an exchange has already beta established at Bennington, Kansas, sad a sac nod osm wIU moo be la operation at Topeka. BtScaalßfM fcM HUMS BICYCLISTS’FAST RUN GREAT RACE AT CHICAGO. Thm Hundred Men Conpili for (k( Honor* In the rullmao Hoad Race. The Pullmau road race, the groat eat event of the year for Weatern wheelmen, waa run at Chicago on Decoration Day lu brilliant aun ahlne and balmy weather. A gentle breeze and dry road made the race the moat aucceaa ful of the aerie* of acven yet run. About 300 wheelmen participated and the crowd* ot spectator* at the mart and finish were far up In the thousands. Aa the course has been changed since last year comparison Is difficult with preceding records. The present dlstauce la seventeen aud one-fourth miles. At tt:4» a. tn.. In front of the Lelaad Hotel, Starter L. W. Conkling aald “Uo” to the first of the swarm of expectant cyclists that Hand! capper Miles had arrunged on their respec tive marks. Twelve minutes later, at 9 sharp, the "scratch" men swung Into their saddles and the big race waa ou In earnest. The first man over the tape at the finish was M. Nelson, Columbia Club, at 9:49:30. He waa an elght-miuutc handicap man, making bU running time 58:30. Gunther of the Lin coln should have won the race. He lost It by a fluke. About 100 feet from where the finish tape was stretched la a railroad track. There fttackpolc, hla trainer, stood, and as Gunther came down the course, leading Nelson by several lengths, the trainer waved hla hand and shouted. Gunther, supposing that he had crossed the tape and that his trainer wauled him, dismounted. Before he realized that his race was not won, Nelson crossed the tape. Then, without mounting, he ran across the tape, finishing second. Arthur Lumsdcn narrowly escaped death from a train In crossing the tracks while go ing to the grounds, lie wo* saved by a boy who ran In front of his wheel and knocked him oil. An exciting Incident was due to a stupid policeman, who got excitedly In the way of H. Seabel of Milwaukee just atter the latter crossed the tape f inrtli. The result was a collision, which doubled up the officer like a jack kr.lfc and sent the cycler headlong directly into the laps of a bevy of gnily at tired summer girl*. No one was hurt worse than the policeman, and the matter was passed with a laugh. The men were fearfully du«t-begrlmcd and recognizable only by the long square on their hacks. Judges, timekeepers and referees kept account of the racers until about 100 of the racers had crossed the line. Few men dropped out, but no attempt was made to schedule the later arrivals. The judges announced results as follows: First I’rlze—M. Nesscl, Columbia Wheel men. Time, 55:17; handicap, 3:30. Second Prize—M. Nelson, also winner of race. Columbia Wheelmen. Time, 55:44: handicap. 6:00. Third Prize—Charles T. Kulscly, Illinois Cycling club. Time, 56:11 ‘2-5: handi cap, 1:30. To M. Ncsscl falls the honor of being the swiftest of tbe 300 men who started. GOLD STILL GOING. Another Five Million Dollars Shipped to Kurope. New Yoiik, May 31. The drain of gold from tlic United State* treasury Is going on fast now. HilpmenU of gold to Europe to day and to-morrow will foot up #4,000,000. of which all but #225,000 wa* withdrawn from the treasury to-day. In addition, #IOO,OOO was u lthdrawn for shipment to-day. These amounts, together with the shipments yester day, make the total export movement for tbe week thus far #5.000,000 to Europe and #3OO, 000 to Canada. The gold taken from the sub trea.»ur.v to-day was secured upon the pre sentation of #450,000 In treasury notxs and the balance legal tenders. Three shipments will bring the treasury balance down to about #91,000,000 gold, and as further shipments are expected Saturday, it Is likely tho balance will be reduced to #90,000,000 at the end of the week, although the treasury ie constantly receiving from various sources small amounts of the yellow metal. Saturday's shipment* are not announced yet. but arc expected to amount to #2.000.000 or more. Circus Train Wrecked. Waller Main's circus train was wrecked on tbe Tyrone and Clearfield branch of the Pennsylvania railway at Vail station five miles 6outh nt Tyrone, at 5:30 Tuesday morning. A* fur a* can l»c ascertained, five persons were killed and ten injured. The circus wa* en route to Lewiston from Houtsdale. The engineer lost control of the train w hen going down the mountain and It jumped Ihe track when going at a speed of 40 miles per hour, throwing 14 cars over a thirty-foot embank ment. Most of the animals were bndly hurt, and a number escaped to the woods. Tbe truin Is badly demolished and it is the worst wreck In this locality for years. Some of the animals are still at large. One tiger valued at #7,000 wa- shot. Thlitjen ears and a locomotive tender were totally de stroyed. Three sleepers aud tbe tender re mained on the track. The loss Is estimated at #IOO,OOO. Sealers Get a Good Start. According to advices received nt the .State and Treasury department* 110 scaling vessels have left Victoria up to date. This, coupled wltli the fact that ttie scalers have so much the start of the patrol fleet, Is causing the ad ministration considerable uneasiness a* lo the outcome of Gils year’s work. To lie effective. It la the opinion of experts that tbe fleet should have l*een in Behring sea not later than May 15. it I* feared that there will tie nothing lo prevent the scalers from 1 entering the forbidden waters and making heavy captures before any of tbe patrol ves sels can overtake them. It will lie the aim 1 of the government to head off and capture ; tho supply steamer of the scalers, a* wa* ; done Inst year by Captain Evans, before It liu* a chance to communicate with sealers ill Behring sen. There are serious doubt* on ; this score, however. Smuggling Opium and Chinese. Secretary Carlisle ha* during the past few day* received several telegram* which fully confirm the newspaper dispatches ns to the discovery of a conspiracy ou the extreme northwest border to smuggle opium' and Chinese iuto the United States. These tele grams, which for the present arc withheld, go further.

A Crazy Aeronaut. While 30.000 people looked. Aeronaut Pur cell Thomas stepped front the pinnacle of the Parade house roof at Iluffaio, N. Y , Tuesday afternoon, with an ordinary umbrella In one hand, and shot like a rock to the stone pave ment below. His wife, who was to jump next, drew back In horror at the sight of her husband's mangled hotly stretched below. The skull of the aeronaut was crushed, hi* back, legs and arm* broken. He died a* he was being carried Into the hospital. Ills wife Is left destitute with four children. His home I* said to be In Indianapolis. He was to get •50 for the feat. Embarge on Cattle. The Glasgow Importers of Canadian cuttle have sent word by cable to the exporters to stop shipping, a« the delays, owing to the re quirements of the Board of Agriculture that the cattle shall be slaughtered upon arrival, are ruinous to the trade. Three vessels load ed with cattle are waiting for the disposal of their cargoes and others are coming, and prices have fallen i.'S on caoh animal. In view of the fact that no evidence of disease of cattle has developed, the shippers have again requested the Board of Agriculture to raise the existing embargo. The board refused to grant the request. Bonds of a Paper Road.

Phs ex-Secretary of ths Trsatsry Com* polled to Maks an Asslgnmsnt. K Ths Hon. Charles Foster,who was secretary nf the treasury under President Harrison, made an assignment for the benefit of bit creditors on the 36th. It la not yet known what bit liabilities are, but they will probably reach fCOO.OOO. Hla asset*, though much more than that amount, shrink so much in the process of reallalog upon them that they will not more than meet the liabili ties. Mr. Foster bits been tbe leading busi ness man of his home, Fostorla, Ohio, and Is Identified with a number of buslueas enter prises. The bank of Foster A Co., the wholesale grocers, Davis A Foster, have also assigned. “The affairs of tbe Mambourg Glass Com pany, Crocker Glass Company,Calcined Glass Company and the Brass and Iron Works Com pany and the Fostorla Light and Power Com pany aie so Involved, the governor being a heavy Indorser of their paper, that these Insti tutions will ho placed in the hands of an as algnee. The bank of Foster A Co. carried several hundred thousand dollars In deposits, having the account* of a majority of the buslnc** men of Fostorla. The bank negotiated the loans for the Brass aud Iron Works and the Crocker, Mambourg A Calcined Window Glass bouses. To do this the bank had to give Its own Indorsement, aud It was this fact tnat caused the crash. The great stringency of the money market compelled all banks hold ing the governor's paper to ask payment,and, having so much paper out, he was not able to carry the load. According to Mr. Foster's statement, he discovered the extent to which he had In dorsed Immediately on his return from official life at Washington, and the crisis was aluio-t precipitated at that lime; but be succeeded in getting •120.000 of bis friend, Dan Darkness of Hcllvuo, giving for the same a deed for tbe two Foster blocks und bis stock In the Cun ningham Stave and Barrel factories. This re lief caused the governor to hope he could pull through, but the continued money stringency compelled him to meet more paper as It ma tured. until finally he saw no hope of relief, and a general assignment waa the only course left. The failure of Mr. Foster is most deplora ble; It Is more so, It la a great calamity. Hl* failure Is due to his efforts to build up Fos torla. It was his sole ambition to see bis own town prosper There was no enterprise he was not ready to encourage, no citizen he was not ready to help. It was his big, generous heart that pulled him down. Those who will lose will not have a single unkind word to eay of him. He has given tip everything without reserve. His million* of friend* will not do •ert him In hi* distress; million* who hope he will bear up manfully under the crushing blows. He has acted honorably and still commands the profound respect of every citizen. In speaking of his failure Mr. Foster said: “Words cannot express the deep distress and humiliation 1 feel. If I could bear all the burdens that my failure will entail, I should feel a 6ensc of relief. It Is no consolation to look back over a business life of forty-five ycare that ha* gained for me a position of confidence that has rarely been achieved, to know that I have aided hundreds of people to maintain an honorable standing and to gain competency and some a targe degree of wealth. I know that now I have by my fail ure Injured many people, but I hope none are to be ruined. “It Is only just to myself that two things have caused my downfall. One was neglect of business caused by my devotion to politics, and the other to an overzealous desire to build up Fostorla. I don't know that at my time of life I ought to Indulge lu the hope of being able to repair my fortune and pay my debts; that I shall try will be tbn one end for which I shall live. In this hour of unspeaka ble distress I only crave the generous judg ment of tbe public—a public that will bo deeply shocked over the linaucial downfall of a man who has enjoyed their confidences to a remarkable degree. The aggregate amount of the liabilities. Including bank dcfio.-dts, my Individual debts, the three glass companies, the brass and Iron works company, the light and power company, will he about 1600,000. The assets on paper will more than cover the liabilities. We have secured the school fund aud the building nnd loan association funds against lcrs." A Blow at Trusts. Under a decision rendered by Judge Patter son of New York, business men who refuse to enter trusts und combinations are entitled to relief when these trusts try to force them out of business. The case was that of the Duobcr Watch Company, which began aii action against the K. Nournd Watch and Clock Manu facturing Company and others to recover nearly 1500,000 damages, charging that the defendant, falling to induce the Ducber Watch Company to enter Into a combination, had set to work deliberately to ruin-the plaintiff'* business by Intimidating dealers who wanted to buy Dueber case*. In passing on a demurrer Judge Patterson says In bis opinion u good cause of action has been established for by the statute of that state it Is a misdemeanor to commit any act Injurious to trade or commerce. Tbe judge concluded: "II Is not a case of the freedom of trade. There Is not an ap pearance of the purpose on the part of tbedc fendants to Increase their business, but only to crush out a rival who would not join them In an asserted Illegal purpose.” Chinamen Net at Liberty. At the request of Maxwell Evarts, who I* associated with Joseph M. Choate ns counsel for the Six Companies, Judge La Combe of New York ha* written an opinion In the case of Ny Look, the Chinaman who was arrested several days ago. The judge ordered that he be deported as soon a* provision was made for carrying out the Geary taw, but set hlui at liberty in the meantime. Mr. Choate caused the arrest of the man for an Important reason. He felt that a judge In that city would not order that a Chinaman be kept under arrest pending the arrangement to put the Geary law Into effect. A Western judge might, however. Copies of Judge La Combe’s oplulon have been aent to the attor ney general ut Washington nnd will reach every United States judge before long. This decision will furnish a precedent which other judges will not be likely to set nslde. Emin Pasha's Fate. A letter just received from Ben Mohammed by the governor of Stanley Falls, leave* little doubt that Kmlu Pashu, the noted explorer. If dead. The letter says that an Arab chief named Snlil Bin Abed In tourneying toward Uoyoro and Wadelal, met Emin Paelia and hla expedition In a hostile manner. A severe battle ensued and the fighting tasted for threw day*. Emin Pasha and his followers were defeated anil took to (light. Bald Bln Abed and his victorious followers overtook Emin and captured nnd killed him, together with •11 bis people. Promised a Mobbing. .1. A.

He has been frankly promis ed a mobbing when l»c l>cglns this work, and If be proceeds with these cases It will probably come. Davenport has 216 aaloons aud Scott county over 300, and the prevailing sentiment I* strongly against tbe lowa prohibitory law. Effort* to enforce It are sure to be opposed with violent*** Convicted Bandits. Twenty-one Mexicans convicted in tbe United State* for violation of tbe neutrality taws have l>ecn sentenced to terms of Impris onment.

The re mainder were given jail aentencea ranging from one month to one year. Married an Indian. A great deal of comment has been occa sioned by the marriage at tbe Blase ton Agency, 8.

After Serving a Term It) Prison Convicts Had Nowhere to Go and Often Committed Crime Cut It tbe Homo Was Built. Alighting: from a train at tho little West Philadelphia station of Paschall after a fifteen minutes’ ride from Broad street station, passing along a little footpath and turning to the left, ono sees on the very corner of .seven ty-third stroot and Paschall avenue nn old-fashioned two-story house, dis tinct from tho frame dwellings around it in that it is built of stono. Within its walls Is located tho Homo of Industry for discharged prisoners of Pennsylvania, says tho Philadel phia Times. Tho majority of people, perhaps, do not pause to contemplate the difficulties encountered by criminals when, after sorving a term in prison, they wish to begin life anew. It has been proved by thoso who have given tho matter attention that criminals who navo been duly punished are usually anxious to regain their stand ing as honest men. And it has beon proven also that too often they are driven buck to theft and robbery by tho repulses of their kind. Who Is moro friendless or forlorn than the man discharged from prison, thrown on his own resources, possibly dogged by detectives und knowing that no ono aware of his history will employ him be his need over so great? What courso is open to him but a life of dishonesty? For men of this class never bog; they will support them selves, though it bo by questionable means. Entering tho building from the front ono passos first into the square parlor in which religious services are conducted at stated times. Here Isa small organ, there a tall desk be tween tho windows; plain chairs are rangod round, and the floor is covered with well-worn carpet On the wall* are scriptural texts illuminated and framed. Through folding doors one sees Into tho back parlor, wherein is u well-defined mokcase, and thence one passes into tho dining room, with its low coiling, long table and form idable array of chairs. Oponing out of this is tho kitchen, of which tho managers are justly proud, and which forms a part of the annex recently erected. It is large and cheerfully light, with shining oil-cloth on tho floor, and is fitted up with every thing needed. Next to tho kitchen is the superin tendent’s office where another book case. containing tho works of stand ard authors, stands near his desk, and through another door one entors the wash room, whore everything has been arranged for tho largo num ber of men. Of the sleeping rooms it need only bo said that they corre spond in neatness und comfort. Across tho yard is tho workshop, a long, low shed, whoro tho men work daily at broom-making, which trade they arc taught. For lack of room and suitable appliances the work is dono with hand machines, but the brooms aro of tho best and the man agers could easily find a market for three times as many as can be turned out under presont conditions. Tho home has been located in this building for two years and has pros pered in that time. During tho past year 109 raon were admitted, twenty throo of thoso found employment, fifty-eight left of their own accord, some to assist a similur institution in Now York: forty-throo wore fur nished with meals and temporary lodgings and only eight wore dis charged for cause. Some of those same ex-prisoners in talking of their past told how they onco entered a house when there was only a little girl there. They knew that the owner had in Lis possession a sum of several thousand dollars which they intended to oapturo. In their search for it one of them came Ripans Tabules Ripans Tabules act gently but promptly upon the liver, stomach ;'.na intestines; cure habitual constipation and dis pel colds, headaches and fevers.

DrsuHt, Asian, CelMsfc^ upon a box and. shaking it exclaimed: ••Hallo, boys; here’s the money!" “Oh!” Qxclalmcd the llttlo girl iu’ alarm; “that is my savings bank.’ The finder asked hot* how much sho had in it and on her replying twonty dollars ho drew two ton dollar gold pieces from his pocket and dropped them in the box. The gung then left, tho houso, their search for their in tended booty having failed and tholr “honor" not allowing thorn to take tho little child's inonoy. A man just discharged from tho Eastern penltontiary was aakod by a gentleman, out of curiosity, whoro ho was going. Ho replied that ho did not know, having no frionds and no means of livelihood. Thereupon the gentleman told him of tho homo of industry and recotnmondcd him to go tbero temporarily. Ho did so and upon leaving said to one of tho man agers: “I’m very much obliged to you for keeping me as you have dono. and I want to tell you that if I hadn’t heard of this place and come hero thero’d have beon a robbory on ltidgo avenue. I had it all planned." Upon ono occasion a trustod and thoroughly reformed inmate of tho homo was sent to transact business at one of tho banks. Its presidont immediately sought the society’s secretary, and oxclaimod, in horror stricken tones: ••Good heavens, Stoddart, do you know who that man was you sent down awhile ago?" “Know him? Of courso I do," re plied that gentloman. “Why, he's a noted bank burglar— one of the smartest in tho profession. Don’t send him to our placo again whatever you do.’’ ••But lie’s one of our best men— perfectly trustworthy and—” ••That may bo all right enough;bufc don't send him again, that’s all." Tho following fragment of conver sation recently overheard among a group of ex-prisoners at tho homo also testifies to the difficulties they had to encounter. “I’ve had throe situations," said No. 1, “and every time somebody told on mo and I got discharged." Said one of his companions, “Ben. don't take a situation; go in business for yourself aud then they can’t turn you off.” “Well, that’s all right, but whore's your capital to come from?" Of Course She Knew It. Harry—l)oos sho know you lovo her? Fred—Sho can’t help knowing it Why, sho told me sho had $20,000 a year.—Life. FEMININITIES. Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead. From what did tho o’d-fashioneii horse pistol derive its name? —From its habit of kicking. There aro twenty-seven royal fam ilies in Europe, ol which there aro, all told, 460 members. The woman who marries a man to reform him undertakes a task that will ruin bar complexion. “I wonder If It’s trua that every man has his pricu?” “No; for just think how muny ©f them give themselves away.” Orango-penl when thoroughly dried or baked is a capital thing for lighting fires. It burns fiercely and gives out an intense heat. It is a very easy matter for a person to be in two pluces at the same time. Ono frequently hears of a man being in a strange country and home siclc. When a man eloped with Briggs’ wifo he exclaimed: “Well, I can’t blame him, poor fellow! I was aw fully infatuated with her myself, once." “Charles, dear, now that we are mar ried, you know, wo must have no se : erets. So do, like a dove, hand me I that bottle of hair dye; you will find | it on my dressing-case.” | Harry—And, dearest, do you think lof me nil day long?
