3 CRUISE OF THE YACHT HILDA Why Her Disappearance Re mains a Mystery. "Tell us about the Hilda, Brownlow." "It Isn't safe to spin that yam. Some f you might pet mo into trouble." A promise of secrecy was made, and the yarn was spun. "The Hilda had the newest thing in wigtues, mid as soon as she had been feshHl her owner, Mr. Chlppindale, rtarted in her for a trip around the world, with nie as engineer. "A. great many people think the days uf pirates are past and gone. Don't you believe it. Ships go out and are never heard from gone down in a utorin; more likely their crews are murdered and the ship is plundered und scuttled. Well, we were steaming westward somewhere between Hong kong and Manila when we met a sailer wearing Itritlsh colors coming through the water, turning the white before her, heading right for us and signaling us to slow down. Thinking she had something important to communicate, we stopped the engines, and a boatload of men came aboard. As soon as they were on our deck the hip tbey came from hauled down the British flag and raised the skull and erossbones. "I'm not going over the doing away j -with every man of us. That'a what keeps me from sleeping" "Weren't you one of the yacht's crew?" "Sure. But I was the engineer, and not one of the pirates could run an en glue. Gooledge, their captain, said to me: 'Bun them engines, and so long as you run them right you live. When you run tb,ern wrong' "I knew what he meant without his , finishing, and you bet I ran the en gines right. This was the time when the Spanish war was coming on, and we'd learned all about it from speak ing an American cruiser, especially that Dewey was soon to sail from Hongkong. Besides, all the nations were sending men-of-war to the Phil ippines to see fair play.' Gooledge had been dodging vessels that were cal culated to give him this information and did not know anything at all about it. He came to me and asked me what kind of craft we'd been meet ing, and I concocted a story. I told him that a couple of hundred tulles east of Manila we'd passed a small steamer, capable of makln;: eight knots and no more, that carried express mat ter. Uooledge suspected that a money safe belonging to the express compa nies might be aboard and was itching to get at it We would have to go back between Hongkong and Manila to reach the steamer and were likely to fall In with a cruiser. "Sure enough, one morning we saw a black line on the horizon to the northward, then another and another. It was Dewey's fleet, but we didn't know it. "As luck would have it, we were steaming across the Hue of a scout ship. I looked out and saw the smoke north by northeast and made up my mind that the stranger would pass nstern of us. I kept an eye out the porthole, and when she came within sight I saw a signal flying for us to heave to. Gooledge didn't dare risk nn inspection and paid no attention to It. The cruiser came on, but was only two knots better than us and gained slowly. I didn't know that she was ordered to overhaul everything she met, and I was afraid she'd get tired of the chase, so I contrived to loosen a screw and let go a rod, then called Gooledge and told him I'd have to stop the eugine a few minutes and fix it or the thing would break ns up. If I hadn't been necessary to him he would have killed me right there, but instead lie told me he'd give me Just five min utes to fix it after stopping and held his watch in one hand and a pistol in the other, "I kept asking him the time, blunder ing as well as I could without his see ing me do it, until he called four min utes. Then I screwed her up and started on. I hadn't more than done so when a shot went skipping before our bows, and I made uf my mind we'd be overhauled. I heard Gooledge come below and go into Mr. Chlppln dnle's stateroom, which he'd appropri ated to his own use, and in a few min utes there was the report of a pistol. I went to the room, looked In and saw the pirate giving his last gasp. "I hurried on deck, and there in the distance was a fleet of w-ar vessels, and the cruiser that had been follow ing us had turned to Join them. Seiz ing Gooledgo's glass lying on one of 1 . .1 1 - .-.-1 ..1 - . nhntM T 1 t. eled it and saw the flagship of the fleet signaling the cruiser to come in. "When it was known that the cap tain had blown out his brains, two of the crew came to tne and said they had been taken when Gooledge was short handed and had Joined to escape walking the plank. They said they would have hard work to get clear if taken. The others were tired of the business. They proposed that if I would run the yacht ashore and de stroy . her I might go free. As there was nothing else to do and I was in the same boat with the others, I con sented. A few days after Dewey cap tured Manila we landed on the island, burned the yacht and, making our way to Manila, enlisted in the American army." "I see," said one of the listeners, "why the affair never got Into the newspapers. "Just so," remarked the narrator. "And mind you keep dark about it" A Good Gas Range This handsome and serviceable Ga3 Range is a bran-new product of the Glenwood Foundry, and has all the best improvements.

Representative William Brown Mc Kinley of Illinois, manager of Presi dent Taft's campaign for renomlnatlon, is also chairman of the Republican congressional committee in charge of the general fight for the election of Republicans to both houses. From his headquarters at Washington Mr. Mc Kinley will direct the preconveutlon contest. After the convention he will probably relinquish his temporary du ties and again take up the work of the congressional committee, although there Is a possibility that he may be come national chairman to handle the fight against the Democratic nominee. Four years ago Mr. McKinley was considered for the position of national chairman to conduct Mr. Taft's cam paign for the presidency, but Mr. Hitchcock was finally agreed upon. The new Taft manager is a politician of wide experience. Already he has bandied two congressional campaigns, in one of which, four years ago, he was successful and in. the other, two years ago, he was swamped, losing the bouse to the Democrats. Mr. McKinley be sides being an aggressive politician la a business man of uncommon ability. He is a native of Illinois, fifty -six years old, and by occupation is a farmer and banker. In business he has been very successful and owns a network of trol ley lines that gridiron the middle sec tion of Illinois. He is serving his fourth term as a congressman. j NEW YORK IS ALMOST SOLID For Him So President Taft Hears From Leaders HE'S GOING ON THE STUMP It Is Expected That Taft Will Driver Scores of Speeches Before June, But He Will Not Indulge in Personalities.

Presi dent Taft will soon start a vigorous speech making campaign to explain his position on current questions and to further his candidacy.

Champlin Is at Pres ent at the Head Who Said His Hat, Too, Is In the Ring. Boston, Feb. 29. Massachusetts Re publicans are organizing rapidly to the support of President Taft. The first definite move in this direc tion was made yesterday, when the Taft lcugue was born. The league is to be state wide in representation and intlu enee. Its head, temporarily, and until ollicial organization sliall have been ef fected, is Ueneral Edgar R. Champlin, the veteran of many political campaigns. General Champlin returned from a win ter in Kgypt only last week, and as one of his" lieutenants puts it just in tune. A sumcient index of the energy thai will be injected into the present movement is found in the statement of tlits general that his hat, too, is in the ring. The Taft league has taken tho suite of rooms at Young's, numbered 93, 94, 9o a nil 00, the same rooms, in fact, which were used bv Massachusetts Re publicans in the Taft campaign four years ago. The location, therefore, of tho present organization i held to be not without nigniticunce. In two or three davs. the league will have begun a more active existence and that tune, its plans and hopes will given out fully. There were many women in this crowd,, stenographers iind clerks from n!.rliy ollices who were out on their luncheon hour, and several of them tot 1 caught in the ruih that swept every thing before it when the colonel ap peared. Window s in the Kxchange build ing across the street were tilled with on lookers, and newspaper photographers attracted much attention on their lofty perch on t lie Kvchange building balcony. The police kept the crowd in check, but allowed free passageway on the side walk.

Just Prior to His Departure From Bos ton for'New York Crowd Rushed to Shake Hands With Him. Boston, Feb. 29. Colonel Roosevelt's final day in Boston on the visit that bee.an last Saturday and ended at 3 o'clock yesterday with his departure for New York may not have been so stren uous as the preceding days, but it gave the public a better opportunity to see him with his appearance in State street to attend the regular monthly meeting of the Harvard board of overseers, of which he is a member. The crowd began to form about the doors of 50 State street soon after tin colonel entered the building at 11:05 and it was constantly augmented till when the colonel emerged at 12:50 o'clock it numbered fully 1,600. While the colonel was cheered and his automo bile besieged, the demonstration was in no sense comparable to that on his pievious visit to State street on a sim ilar occasion two months ago. At that time the street was blocked to tratlic and the cheering was tremendous. The colonel evidently was not at all displeased yesterday at the crowd or th enthusiasm. As he came from the building there was a rush for the auto mobile and the thrusting of hands through the two open windows. The I colonel recognized the appeals for hand shakes and leaning forward he grasped every hand in sight. A broad grin was o:i Ins face and Ins black slouch hat WOMEN HELP DEMOCRATS.

Call by National Committeeman Esta brook of New Hampshire. Nashua. X. H., Feb. 29. A call for a meeting to lie held in Concord on Tues day, March 5. for the purpose of form ing a Taft league, has been issued by F, W. Kstabrook. Xew Hampshire mem ber, of the Republican national commit tee. In the call Mr. Kstabrook says: "A request made for the meeting of those Republicans who are in earnest f.r an immediate organization of a Taft league whose work shall be the dec t'on of eight delegates from New Hump sl-ire standing squarely for the renomina tio.i of the president to the exclusion of all other questions.' I he directions on the can of nolisn which exploded contained the following: "If a great luster is desired, apply when iron is warm." Mrs. Ciately was using the polish on a hot stove and wu burned so terribly by an explosion of the polish that she died shortly after ward. . The supreme court says in its decision : "The conflicting expert testimony left to the jury the credibility of the wit nesses and the weight of evidence, and they could accept the opinion of the plaintiffs' witness who positively stated that 'it was naphtha with some pigment and a little thickening,' and 'notwith standing all that is said about qualifying phrases it is naphtha just as half a dol lar is silver,' rather than the conclusion of the defendants' expert that it was 'an asphalt paint.' "The substantial inquiry upon this ev idence is the construction to be given tt revised laws, chapter 102, section 10S, making it a penal offense to sell, -offer for sale or keep for sale, naphtha under any assumed name." , After rehearsing the history of the various statutes which are codified in the chapter of the revised laws in question, the supreme court goes on to says "It is not impossible to say that the prohibition refers only to the sale of naphtha under the name of petroleum or some of its other enumerated products. But this would not reach the mischief which the statute was obviously intend ed to prevent. The designations uinbr which naphtha might be sold would be as various as its fluid nature would permit, and the seller would not be subject to the penalty. "A commercial compound of which one of the substantial parts might be naph tha, yet when combined with other In gredients it became as a whole a distinct and independent product, would not come within the statute. But if the con tributed parts merely supplied coloring to the fluid, with a slight thickening, making the mixture adhesive when ap plied, then the jury must determine whether the article sold does not remain really and essentially naphtha. "Section 108 not only imposes a pen alty, but under section 10l. the defend ants, if found to have transgrossd, also were made liable in a civil action for any damage suffered by the decedent from the explosion of ignition of the naphtha, independently of any question of negligence on their part."

This is rather hard to answer, since the. color of the gown is not known, but probably the established custom of pouring boil- ng water over the stain would be as ef fective as anything. Benzine is' another suggestion, or, if the color of the gown would warrant it, a weak solution of cream of tartar water is said to be x celli nt in removing some kinds of stains. Rinse thoroughly afterward. We would not. however, recommend the use of any of these on the dress itself until it bud been previously tried on a separate piece of the goods. If anyone has found a way of successfully removing coffee stains from gowns, we ask contributions to that effect. e Good Hot Supper Dishes.
