Anderson Will Push Work On Parish House Project Fund is Large. The vestry of the Church of The Redeemer have voted to engage the services of an assistant rector to the Ven. A. II. Wv Anderson anil have chosen Rev. S. Wilson Moran, of West Salem, Wis. The principal duties of the assist ant recor will be those of choir mas ter. The Yen. Anderson expects to give much time to the work of arranging for a new parish house, a substantial fund for this purpose having been raised by the energetic efforts of the Yen. E. L. Roland during his rectcrata hf re with whom the parish house idea was a project of the greatest interest. A description of the plans was iven in these columns some time ago. All friends of the parish will be pleased to learn that the project is to be carried into effect. The Ven. Anderson, rector of the parish, is winning the loyal coopera tion of his parishioners. He is an earnest Christian, energetic and gifted and the parish is indeed for tunate to have him as its spiritual director. THE fflCUU LEFT E00IE F0 TWO STARS COULD NOT SHINE TOGETHER TRIXIE WILL GO INTO VAUDEVILLE. Regarding Trixle ' Friganza (harming actress who formerly the lived at Mound City and Is widely known in Cairo, the Chicago Tribune says: Eddie Foy and Trlxie Friganza couldn't net on together in "The Orchid," though Eddie says both cf them tire of the same race, The re sult cf their differences is that Trlxia has severed her connection with that show. Eddie said that he didn't wish to criticise any woman, but th.it Trixie's temper was too much fr him. Two things combined to bring about the Friganza retirement. A threat to go cn strike was sent by ; Mr. Foy to the Shuberts !.i New York last week. This week brought Mr. Sbubert to Chicago at once with pans for a settlement of the trouble. Then Miss Frijanza was injrred in an antrum bile, neeldent. Tr?t settled matters. The leading woman, b -ina likely to have to keep to her bed for weeks, asrv-d in an inten jew with Mr. Shubcrt t "remain out of t!e show for good."

My trouble with Mr. Foy is a i at- ter that I don't like to discuss, f irtln'r than to say that I have bec.i dis chaiged at least once every we -k since last March. Now, that is all yen can get me to say, as I have promised not to talk." "I wiil not engage in any bickerings sith Miss Friganza or any other wom an." said Mr. Foy. behind the scenes at the Carilck. "Was she loo fond e,f the spot light?" was nskel. "She was fond of lots cf t'ings clever, too: but. O. such a bunnier!"

The supreme court holds that the fact that the state has not received any taxes on the bridge line, does not render it taxable to the City of Cairo, but in the opinion of the supreme court the state should have received the taxes.

The smoke-house is located in the basement or at least the place where the fires are built to make the neces- scry smi'dgo are, but the hams and cl her meats to be smoked are sent into the smoke chute bv means of Iron bars on the third Moor and the entrance when closed is composed of iron sectional doors. When the smoking process is completed the meat is withdrawn in the same way and sent to its next department. Dig cauldrons for rendering lard are numerous and the lard purifying machine was another novel sight to mcst of the visitors. The lard is passed by steam pressure through thirty pieces of cloth in the big device iired as a strainer and every little piece of sediment is thus removed. The machine itself Is a very Intricate piece of mechanism. All the bones and refuse are cooked and passed through a grinding ma chine and are then taken down through a chute Into the fertilizer room in the basement by means of a trolley. As is generally known fer tilizer is much sought by farmers anil it commands a good price at the fer tilizer factories. It) the basement is the refrigerat ing plant where small 2-inch pipes are made to look like 12-inch by tho thick coating of heavy wnite frost around them. Great quantities of sugar cured hams and bacon are stored in this department. j There is little or no waste and no rse of surplus labor about the ostab- lisment, all departments and the ! power being in-ranged so as to call for i a:, lime iiaim worn us pcHsime, a I most desirable hygienic condition.

M II a . ii jj By Anna Lyons. H El II Not a soul but himself had as yet Btiruul at the trading post, when Ureho.if. the trapper, after hitching up bis dogs and seelug that he had enough blaukets and provisions oa tho sledge, let himself out through a side gate in the stockade, and with a gutieral "mush on" started his doss bounding out over the trail. He was making his usual visit to the trails that he had set a few dayg previous. It was a good day s jour ney to their goal and be pulled th dogs into a steady lope that carried. them swiftly over the frozen snow, Ou and on they went through the silence. He traveled as fast as his dogs could go. until, just as night was closing in, they reached a cabin that be had built near the bead of the line of traps. After fastening the team, he at some supper and then curled up in bis blaukets and slept. The nest morning he was up and away to the trails early. Chuckling with satis faction, he passed from one trap to another, for nearly all contained its victim, dead and frozen. hen he bad started there waa hardly as much as a breath of wind to disturb tho solitude, but before he leached the last trap it suddenly began to snow, and by the time be had everything well packed and had started back over the trail it waa snowing hard. Brehouf swore softly to himself ag he went along, for he was new to Ibiii territory and depended largely on bis knowledge of the trail to enable bim to regain the post. For many hours he hastened on through the storm, which after a time changed to a light fall, so that he was able to see a distance round about, and he looked eaeerly for somu familiar points in the landscape. But it seemed all new; this great barren range was strangely unfam iliar. Thinking that he might have got a little off the trail, he turned more and more to the south. And as he went along he strained his eyes for a glimpse of some remembered ob- j caRes out of ten responsible for un ject, but in vain. happy marriages. Everywhere stretched the same Interminable lino of white, broken in a few places by patches of forest or small hills. Then a great fear swept through him and clutched his heart, a thought that obscured his very mind and vision. He pulled up his dogs and tried to focus his miud on what was before him. He gazed, as If fascinated at the great snowy waste, undulating on and on into the distance, that seem ed to bold In its motionless bosom the very spirit of silence and death. Everywhere the whiteness, always the silence, that oppressed like weight. It had stopped snowing now, but tlie strange, tense atmos phere filled him with fear and vague alarm. He shook himself as though to throw off this feeling that seemed to be crushing him, and with a wild cry started on again, turning more and more to the south as he thought. but in reality he was twinging around, so that his course described a huge circle that would soon point almost due north. And then suddenly It grew colder, iierce northeast wind came driv ing ulong, biting and stinging into his face, and his hands grew so numb that he had to stop the sledge and pound bis lingers until be got the blood circulating again. Then, with a little renewed vigor, he was off once more on bis despair ing journey . He cursed and lashed the dogs until the blood oozed through their lur. On and on they went, but it was always the same. And slowly the conviction was forc ed upon him that be was hopelessly lost. Once he stumbled and fell, and the dogs who were nearly finished stop peel as he went down, lie bad a bard time to get on his feet, and w hen this was accomplished he lean ed against the sledge, exhausted. The cold was frightful and soon bis body became almost numb, and mut tering and raving he stamped about trying to keep the life in his freez ing limbs. Then once more cRine the snow, a'.owly st first as if regretfully, but with Its usual quickness, changing into a driving, howling storm. In bis blind rage be had wandered far ther and farther away from his team and when he turned to look for It, Ii was nowhere to be seen. He managed to struggle to his feet; the wind upset him; once mora be arose, and once more he was thrown. This time be did not rise, but lay quite still, while the voice of the storm whistled and niuaned around bim, first sinking to a low droning sound, then rising to a cry ot wild rejoicing. It as bis re quiem. With relentless sway It wept down, and the snow, drifting end eddying, soon covered bis mo tionless form. Hour after hour it came down steadily, but with the dawn of an other day It stopped as suddenly as If had begun. And as the sun peep er! out from the east. Its glanca fell t.n a vaft. unbroken plain of white, for of the last resting place of Bre houf and his dogs there was ao s'gn. An;l over all stretched the great vh;te silence of the magnetic north. fodaiprond of this big enterprise which is strictly a hemic indrstry.
