Leonidas, Mich, Feb 9. In a fit of
jealous rage Thursday night Miss Den
ell Neddo threw a bottle of carbolic
acid in the face' of George Laird,
burning h'm so that he will lose the
sight of both eyes. Accompanied by
Elgin Scott, Miss Neddo called at the
hotel where Laird boarded. She went
to his room, where Laird was lying
on a cot. After a few words she
dashed the acid into his face,, which
was burned to a blister. Miss Neddo
and her escort then drove away.
Declares She Is the Sole Heir to the
J. B. Stetson Millions.
Chicago, Feb 0. Friends of the late
John U. Stetson, theatrical manager,
and of Mile Morella, known in private
life as Kate Stokes, will be surprised
to learn that the woman had a daugh
ter. Kate Stokes, to whom Stetson
willed his Slmkio,(i00 estaTe, was not
supposed to have had a daughter. The
woman is Mrs D. K. Tone, wife of
a Chicago lawyer, who now lives in No
5S(l Wasuington Boulevard.
Mrs Tone lived iu Chicago several
years, and was known as Mrs Violet
Keith. This name she assumed when
she came to this city in order to avoid
detectives, who have worried her near
ly to distraction. Last August she
was married to David K. Tone.
When seen yesterday Mrs Tone was
not averse to talking about her claim
to the Stetson millions. ,
"My mother, John Stetson's wife,
was Mrs Catherine Stokes Stetson,"
said Mrs Tone. "Her husband when
he died left his entire estate to her and
she died ten days lataer, leaving ine
sole heir to the estate. My name was
Catherine Stokes. I was afterward
married and laid claim to the Stetson
estate tinder the name of Mrs Cather
ine Shirley. Since my marriage to Mr
Tone last. August I have agitated my
case little, but I am conlident that,
when a settlement is made the entile
property will be mine. I am not
worried over the outcome in the least,
and for that reason I seclude myself
from detectives cmploved by other
claimants who are seeking a compro

generally. Progress is being made by

Cremation in Japan la an Exceedingly-
Says This Account.
Every progressive agriculturist will
want to see the Pan-American Exposi

portunity to get new and valuable
ideas of farming is one that no tiller of
the soil can well afford to miss. The
display in the Department of Agricul

The advance of cremation in Eng
land, shown by the establishment of
a municipal turnaee m the north and
the projection of a new crematorium
not far outside the four-mile radius in
London, recalls the interesting history
of Japan in the matter. Cremation
followed Buddhism into Japan about
1.200 years ago, but it only partialiy
superseued the Shinto custom of dis
posing of the dead by interment. In
1S73 cremation was totally prohibited
by the Japanese government, whose
members seem to have had some con
fused notion as to the practice being
an-European, and therefore barbarous.
Having discovered that, far from
being un-European, cremation was the
goal of European reformers in such
matters, they rescinded their prohi
bition before two years had elapsed.
Cremation in Japan is carried out in
a somewhat rough and ready manner.
The cheapest process-costs about $1.12.
This is scarcely adapted to western
requirements and is sufficiently de
scribed by the title which the foreign
residents of a certain settlement "in
Japan gave to the native cremation
ground among the hills "Koast Meat

British Object to Senate Demands and.
Will Make Counter Proposals.
London, Feb 0. -It has been learned
that a reply will soon be sent 'to the
United States Nicaragua canal pro
ject. It will not comply with tlie sen- L
ate's demands. Neither will it be in
the nature of a flat refusal, though, for
purposes of immediate construction,
it will be tantamount to such a re
fusal. It will consist mainly in a
counter proposal, or proposals, likely.
to necessitate extended negotiations.
The nature of the proposal is not yet
ascertainable. Lord Pauncefote prob
ably will be the medium through
whom the answer will be sent and by
whom the answer will be sent and
bv whom the subsequent negotiations
will chiefly be conducted. In British
official opinion it is likely that several
months will elapse before the matter
reaches a conclusion, by which time
the Hav-Pauncefote treaty will have
lapsed. " On the basis of the senate's
amend ments and the British counter
proposals now formulating it is hoped

tory to both countries, eventually will
