There were sev eral able men who sat near bim, but FIRST AID IN THE HOME. There was a sudden putting on of brakes, with a slowing up of the train. The time was 0 o'clock at nlgbt, and the location was in a wood just the place, in fact, for a robbery. The train came to a full stop. A shot was heard. It came from the ex press car, but the passengers in the Btnoker and two passenger coaches couldn't tell where It came from. There were not many passengers any way. The train was running very light In the smoker were several men, way passengers, who appeared . to belong to the country through which the road ran. In the next coach were two ladies sitting together face to face, while In the seat behind them was a dandified young man, apparently a ten derfoot On the other side was a girl j traveling alone. In the next car in the rear sat an old mun and an old The Way to Cars For Wounds Until the Doctor Arrives.

When the col-1 ten emergency hints should be memo- lector and his support came to the old man and old woman the woman with goggles, who sat farther in the rear, suddenly clicked a revolver and shot the man standing in the front door covering the passengers. This divert ed for the moment the attention of the collector and bis attendant und the old woman with marvelous quickness put a bullet through the attendant Before the collector could draw his re volver the old man bad shot bim dead. The events in the rear car first came to a conclusion. The old maid threw away her spectacles, ripped up the front of a calico dress, threw a but embellished with flowers on the floor and. being rid of women's apparel. stalked forward, a strapping man. The woman, the personification of John j old man and eld woman each doffed Anderson My Jo John. Near them was a maiden lady of fifty, wltb gog gles. Suddenly the front door of the fore most coach was thrown open and a man appeared with a short rifle, with which he covered the passengers, while ; the forward car. a white wig. The womon tore off her outer garment and each with a re volver in each band followed the "old maid." "She" threw open the door, and the three of them stood on the platform as the last shot rang out in another man with his revolvers In his belt stepped into the car and said: "Produce your valuables;" ETe was followed by another man. who held a revolver In each hand. With the man at the door covering the passengers with the rifle and a man behind him with six shots in each hand, the "collector" was well pro tected In his work. The passengers sat perfectly still, each one pulling out his or her valuables with alacrity. After going through the car as the collector approached the rear door the A similar transformation scene had been enacted there. The girl who had kuifed one of the robbers became a young man of nineteen, the two ladies turned out a sheriff und his deputy, while the dude was a quiescent looking man noted for being one of the coolest and quickest sbots In that region. When the Inst robber fell tbe dude threw open the rear door of tbe cur. and thone who hud done tbe shooting in both cars jumped off.

Note the nature of the injuries and put the injured person in a comfortable place and position. Summon a surgeon. Do not disturb blood clots. Never probe for a bullet Pick shreds of clothing and splinters or dirt from a wound. Then bring the edges of the wound together, but without touching them. Pack the wound with gauze or ab sorbent cotton and apply bandage. Bind on splints if bones are broken.

TURKS TELL OF VICTORY They Claim to Have Beaten Both Bulgarians AND THE SERVIANS The Reports from Constantinople Belgrade and Vienna Furnish Some Conflicting Tales, However. PROVED HER WORDS. The Ladies Knew Each Other Even Before Their Introd .tion. There whs a great crowd at the pic ture exhibition, and empty seats were at a premium, when two pretty women spied and made for a place at the self same moment They reached the prize together, both pretending ignorance of themselves Constantinople," . Oc t. 2li. Stories of desperate hand to hand fighting between the Bulgarians and the Turks arc told in despatches reaching hero from Adri- anople. Both armies lost heavilv in tho bat tles around that city on Tuesday and Wednesday. Bayonets were used freely in the fight for the possession of the Lanka of the umlja river and hundreds were killci and wounded. - Eight battajlions of Bulgarian troops ttacked the villugo of -Marayaz ami were repulsed by the Turkish troops with heavy losses. The Turks have ;u,00() of their finest troops, on the line stretching from 'Kirk-Kilihseh to Ardi- nople, which latter city is garrisoned ' V another mi.uuti men. Htill another tiO.OOO men guard the ne from Aniianopio back to Luio Bur gasa. AiluIIli Pasha, the commander-in-chief of the Turkish forces, sonic time ago de- lared that the troops at his disposal were sulhcient and since then a great stream or Iresh troops lias heen directed toward Saloniki. Communication with Adrianople is still working normally and no serious attack on the defenses of that town is yet reported by the Turkish commander. Fugitives from Kirk-Kilissch, most of them Christians, are being brought to Constantinople by train. On the other side of the peninsula Zekki Pasha, with an army of 30,000 Turks, is reported to have attacked the Servian army north of Kumanova just as a large force of Bulgarians was about to effect a junction with it. The Ser vians found the four divisions of their troops broken up and they fled in con fusion hack across the frontier, leaving a battery of artillery and a general's nag Dehmd them. The 1 urks took many prisoners and found a large number of dead and wounded on the field. Kikki Pasha then attacked the Bul garians, whom he routed, driving them also back across the frontier with the loss of four of their field guns. A despatch from Usktip'says that Ser vians who are able to leave that town are departing toward the south LABOR NOTES OF WIDE INTEREST It is announced to-dav that the for eign military attaches here are to bo permitted to leave for the front tomor row, lhe Uttoman government has notified the various embassies that the The other day cable dispatches brought ine giau tidings from (Stockholm that a bill had been introduced In the Swedish parliament by the minister of justice which, when enacted into law, would grant to women complete electoral priv neges, exactly the same as men. In introducing the hill, the minister spoke understandmgly of the woman's suffrage movement throughout the world and ex pressed himself us representative of the government as being heartily in favor of the measure. During his speech, among other things ho said that the public de mand for votes for women is too strong to admit any further delay. Modern public work demands co-oieratioii of women. Every womon ought to have a direct influence on parliament. It is a gunrantee that her right as an individual wife or mother is sufficiently retarded, and tins especially applies to women of the working classes. The first prop osition has been that only women having a municipal vote at present should re ceive the porliamentary vote, but 'the government has decided that as unfair, as it excludes most of the married wom en, and therefore it decided to take the whole step at once. When the proposed bill becomes law, It will place Sweden in front of all coun ties insofar as granting to women full enfranchisement and all electoral privi leges and consequently will make that country the most advanced and liberal minded of its time. The proposed law provides that women shull have a vote under exactly the same conditions as men. Many interesting features are in volved, for instance, the Dill allows a husband to cast his wife's vote. An amendment is also being prepared which gives wives of sailors, fishermen, sol diers, etc., wjio are absent from their constituency on the day of election, the right to cast their vote for them. Under tho present Swedish law, a man loses his vote if he is bankrupt, a pau per, or has not paid his taxes for three years. I.'nder the new government bill, if a woman is living with a bankrupt pauper or non-taxpaying husband, she loses her vote, unless she has a separate msrriage settlement. -Otherwise, she is to be treated exactly the same as a man and may be elected to either chamber of parliament, with the express condition that sho may resign her scat whenever she pleases. When will the United States for Sweden's lead? Soon, let us hope, al though the chances are that the enfran chisement of our women folks would not le to organized labor's advantage to begin with, as has been demonstrated in one or two instances lately, in connec tion with municipal elections. But, bo that as it mav, it is in accordance with justice and right that they should have a vote as well as men, and if they do act wildly at first, thev will become edu cated in matters politically eventually, and cast their ballot with labor. They should have a vote, no matter how they cast it; even if it is against us, what's the odds! "O Liberty! If thou killest me, still will I believe in thee."

President Gompers, Secretary Morrison snd several other trade unionists were extended invita tions to be present, and IVesident Gom pers attended. Kier Hardie is in this country making a speaking tour In the interest of the Socialist ticket, and came to Washington upon his own motion, as ho stated, to call upon President Gom pers and Secretary Morrison, the former having been known by Keir Hardie for many years. Mr. Hardie visited tho fed eration offices snd spent some time in an interview and looking through the offices of the federation. At the bnnquet, Keir Hardie, while of course advocating Socialism, made many pertinent remarks with reference to the trade unions of this country. "There ex ists in this country friction between So cialism and the trade unions, and the shafts from the Socialists have been practically directed towards the presi dent of the American Federation of La bor. Whenever the time comes that anv Socialist or combination of Socialists can demonstrate their ability to build up and maintain as strong and as ef fective an organization as the American Federation of Labor the direct result of the efforts of Samuel Gompers and his colleagues then the Socialists may have some foundation upon which to base its criticism. The trade unions," continued Mr. Hardie. "are not only es- entiul. but absolutely necessary, and must be continued in their efTeetive form, and nothing should be done by the So cialists or anyone interested in the gen eral building up of the workmen's move ment to obstruct or disintegrate the un ions of labor. ' President Gompers followed Mr. Hardie and expressed himself as entirely in ac cord with the utterance of the distin guished Britisher, in reference to the trade unions, and stated thnt he could appropriate Hardie's speech as his own. with the elimination of the references to Socialism. 5Ir. Gompers drew atten tion to the fact that the conditions in America were unlike snv other .country on the globe. With its poh got populs tion, its tens of thousands of immi grants every year, its increasing colored' population and its threatened invasion by the people of oriental countries, pre sented a phase that had no comparison. President Gompers emphasised the fact that the federation would continue in the even tenor of its way to carry out its work as laid down b its members in the interest of the workers of tho country snd that the labor movement of this country would still continue to work out its destiny according to the concept , of its affiliates. o j The naval appropriation bill passed bv I the last session of Congress carries with t a provision that all contracts let, au thorised by that bill, shall be executed under the eight-hour day provision. The Fore River Shipbuilding romnanv has becn awarded the contract for the build ing of the battleship Nevada, and tin- , der the terms of the naval appropriation bill this ship must be constructed under the established eight-hour dav. This company has not heretofore recognir.ed the shorter workday. The r ore Kiver shipyards are located at Quiney. Mass.. snd according to information just re ceived, the ship building company will inaugurate the shorter workday, which will be in full operation bv " Novem ber 4. nnd ex-mayor of Sun Francisco, is a member of ' the commission. The ex position munngement expects to build at east one-third of the fair buildings and an agreement has been entered into with tho trade unions of the city, whereby these structures will be erected under strictly union conditions. Tho buildings which will bo erected by foreign gov ernments and states are not included n the agreement with the unions, but under the prevailing conditions in Snn 1 rancisco, it is more than probable that tho greater portion of the buildings erected under the direction of foreign governments and states will be con structed by union labor. This decision has been arrived at for the purpose of permitting foreign governments to bring their own artisans, so fur as may he necessary, to direct and complete the work designed by these foreign govern ments. An arrangement has been made, that differences between individual un ions must be settled by conciliation or arbitration, without any interference of the management's plans to complete tho construction work with all possible haste. o Five and Fifty.

Ironside, Correspondent. prohibition Movement GAINS IN DENMARK quently, and it is believed that the visit of the English and Russian fleets to Copenhagen lately was in an answer to the German activities. In this connection there have been rumors of an alliance between Denmark, England and Russia wherein Denmark will be expected in case of war to fa cilitate the movements of the English and Russian war vessels through her waters. Another version status that Denmark has entered into a secret treaty with Germany, whereby in case of war with England nnd IlusBia, German troops can be landed at convenient points in 1-h-ii- m nrk. Both rumors are declared to bo. pure fiction. The present government, as proof of their desire to maintain a strictly neutral attitude, requested the Enulish and Russian llcets to time their visits so that they would not be in Dan ish waters together. Officially the reason given for this request was that there was not room enough in the Copen hagen harbor for both fleets. ' If it was only a question of sentiment there would be no doubt as to which side the Danes would favor, for during the pBst ten years English influence has trrown steadily in Dcnmnrk. whereas the Danes continue to' resent the efforts of Germany to Prussianize the people of the former Danish Slesvig. But Den mark realizes that her future lies only in strict neutrality and she is determin ed to maintain it. Strides Have Been So Rapid That Party Will Try to Secure Parliamentary Representation. Copenhagen, Oct. 20. The Prohibition movement has made such great strides in Denmark that during the coming elec tions the Prohibitionists are to make strong effort to secure Parliamentary representation. Hitherto the backers of the movement have been content to bring pressure upon the candidates of the regular par ties in an effort to interest them in the propaganda, but now they feel they are influential enough to be "directly repre sented in parliament. In every district where there is a pos sibility of polling a majority vote they will have candidates for the lower house. This will introduce a novel and inter esting feature into the parliamentary elections which have formerly been a straight fight between the government and the Social--I)emocrats. Denmark's neutrality in a possible war between Grest Britain and Germany is being constantly discussed just now. There is no doubt that Denmark would be placed in a serious predicament, for at least one of the combatants would want to use the waters of the Baltic or other Danish waters. The German fleet has manoeuvered in these waters frc- "Lncky pennies" for the assistance of the blind are the latest scheme evolve! by Postmaster Holboll. who introduced the Christmas stamp idea for the sup port of consumption hospitals. He has designed a pennv which will be given by Ujabies who sec the light for the first time to those who never see it. This penny is to be coined by the mil lion and sold to all the midwives In Denmark. The midwives then sell the penny to the parents of the new-born child who will pny for it according to their means and inclinations. This money will then be given for the sup port and education of the blind. To in terest the midwives in the matter, their insuronee and old-a?e funds will be giv en a percentage of the sales. Music from Greenland is shortly to be added to the delights of music lovers. A Danish composer has returned from a trip to Greenland with 150 original pieces of music which he secured from the natives by using a phonograph. He declares that the musical sense of the natives is highly developed, and where they are tho least influenced oy cultivation the most typical tunes have been found. Several of the songs which he secured resemble the songs of the Canadian Indians and the Eskimos. He also discovered similar resemblances in their native dances. The project of improving the harbor of St. Thomas in the Danish West Indies by a state-subsidized company has been abandoned ami the work will be done by private capital, a . large share of which is likely to le furnished by Americans. It was found that the government re strictions hampered the company, and the Danish capitalists, bended by Prince Valdemar, have concluded to act as a private corporation. Under this new plan American capi talist arc taking an active interest in the formation of the company, and it is quite likely that the directorate will he largely in their bands.
