The census authorities assert that
no " "ulty was found in getting an-
iwi. ,om women regarding their age,
and that the average age of women is
greater than that of men. This should
explode the perennial joke about the

age, or, If she tells, to prevaricate In

on account of this showing of fact?

London Truth criticises the severity
of the law in dealing with suicides and
quotes cases which have their parallel
in America. It tells of a man named
Bullock, who pleaded guilty In court
of an attempt at suicide. A charge of
embezzlement had been made against
him, which turned out to be unjustified
and which was ultimately withdrawn
At the time he was 111 and worried, and
when a policeman went to arrest him
he shot himself in the head with a re
volver. When Bullock had been dis
charged from the hospital he was
placed on trial for attempted suicide.
He had lost the use of his right eye as
the result of his temporary insanity,
and his counsel urged that under the
circumstances mercy and lenience
would be justified. The Judge answer
ed the appeal by observing that" the
prisoner has brought all the trouble
upon himself," and he sentenced him
to three months' hard labor. Truth is
trying to secure the pardon of the man
from the Home Secretary. Another
case is that of a man who has been
kept In jail three months awaiting
trial on the charge of cutting his own
throat It may be necessary that the
law should provide penalties for an at
tempt to commit suicide, and these
penalties may deter some who would
otherwise commit suicide; like the man
who was prevented from taking poison
by his friend, who threatened to shoot
him If he did not drop the bottle of ar
senic. Yet a trial and sentence to Im
prisonment for attempted suicide can
hardly have the effect of reconciling
the punished man to life. It would be
better if he were made to feel that the
state wanted him to live and would
give him a chance to get out of his
In these days of high-tensioned liv
ing, when one is always mentally quot
ing to one's friends: "All the world is
queer except you and me, and you're a
little queer," such an article as J. M
Buckley's "How to Safeguard One
Sanity,' In the Century Magazine, is
timely and acceptable. He says that
the widespread belief that persons of
powerful Intellect are more liable than
others to go mad is an erroneous one,
In fact the opposite is true. "A large
number, actually and relatively, of th
insane consists of the more Ignorant
classes of farm laborers, artisans, sail
ors, soldiers, and persons without em
ployment. Hard-working farmers of
the poorer class, and especially their
wives, living remote from towns, hav
ing little variety in life, reading little,
conversing nnd thinking in the same
ruts, furnish a large proportion of such
cases." Tí r-reserve a sound mind in
sound body one must, says the writer,
observe the laws of health with regard
to food, exercise and sleep. Few be
come insane, who, with sufficient men
tal occupation, daily take two or three
hours of vigorous exercise in the open
air, and do not protract exciting stud
ies or business far into the night "The
observance of one day in seven by
complete change In subjects of thought
and the suspension of modes of activ
Ity required for six days, would be
philosophical, even though It bad no
basis In religion." Other foes to sanity
that the doctor mentions are anxiety,
exaggerated sensitiveness, and the lack
f occupation that great wealth make
possible. The best prescription for In
somnia dates, he says, from the time ol
Solomon: "The sleep of a laboring
man is sweet, whether he eat little 01
much; but the abundance of the rich
will not suffer him to sleep." These ara
old truths that long ago men grapplec?
to their souls with steel hooks, but the
grapplings have become weak and it
is well to see to it that they are tight
ened. At no time in the history of English
letters has punctuation had less to do
than" now In clarifying expression. In
the first place, this is the era of the
short sentence. Again, the comma Is
In process of elimination. In the his
tory of printing the comma was the
first point of punctuation to be evolved.
Greeks before the time of Christ had
found punctuation necessary, but it
was in an early translation of the Bible
that the comma first was used. After
other characters had come the comma
found new and relative uses. Twenty
five years ago the school text book ou
English grammar insisted on the use of
of the comma to mark the least of rhet
orical pauses, in addition to setting off
every phrase and clause with the same
mark. This, simply in recognition of
the fact that the tendency to misuse
the comma had resulted in an English
that was unintelligible without this
punctuation point The comma had
put a premium on slovenliness. A sen
tence could be started blindly, the
writer depending upon the comma to
link phrase to clause and lead the read-.
er through the tangled maze of his ver
biage. He emphasized, modified, col
ored and phrased where he was confi
dent that the comma would mark the
way to the end. To-day, however, there
is a distinct disposition on the part of
printshops to economize In the use of
the comma. Already this disposition
is having Its effect on current litera
ture. While It has a tendency to short
en sentences, it has a still greater mis
sion in forcing clearer sentences. In
this elimination of the comma the mod
ern newspaper has taken a lead. As a
rule, Its favored style admits of the
comma only where It Is a sharp neces
sity. Thus the newspaper writer above
all others cannot depend upon the com
ma to point his meaning. Realizing
this he writes to avoid it The result
is that adverbs, adjectives, phrases and
all forms of modifiers are in closest re
lation to. the parts of speech which they
affect, leaving a sentence so clear that
he who runs may read." Whatever
may be said of the degeneracy of mod
ern literature no one will deny that the
written language of to-day is clearer
than It ever was before. Nobody will
deny that some of enshrined classics, If .
stripped of slovenly commas, would be
unintelligible. Not only has the comma'
degenerated, but the italicized point of ;
a witticism; the slovenly brackets, the
overworked quotation marks, and the.
lazy dash, all are reduced to the occa-:
slon of strictest necessity. All this has '
made for better English.
Bridging of the Difficulty.
A lady had issued invitations for a
dinner of twelve, and on the morning
of the appointed day, when conferring
with her footman, she discovered that
one of the twelve silver shells In which
scalloped oysters were to be served had
been misplaced. Rigid search for the
missing article having proved unavail
ing the lady decided that, sooner than
give up that course, she would simply
decline oysters when they were hand
ed to her, and so the eleven shells
would be sufficient
It happened that when the oysters
were served at dinner the hostess was
engaged in a very animated conversa
tion with some of her neighbors, and,
forgetting her determination, she took
one of the shells of oysters and set it
before herself.
If the servant's heart fell In conster
nation at this he gave no external sign

eating oysters." London Tit-Bits.

Miss Ralton and Al Reagan Fool the Old
Mount Vernon (Vt.) Angela Ral
ston, aged 20, and Alfred T. Reagan,
aged 22, both of San Francisco, were
quietly married by Mayor Fiske of
this city in the executive chamber of
the City Hall. The wedding was the
culmination of a pretty romance,
which began in San Francisco two
years ago and ended in th elopment of
the young couple from New York
last night.
Miss Ralston is a daughter of J. B.
Ralston, vice-president of the Union
Iron Works and Reagan is the propri
etor of a prosperous real estate busi
ness in San Francisco. About two years
ago Reagan became acquainted with
Miss Ralston and the acquaintance
soon ripened into affection, which led
to an engagement. Miss Ralston's pa
rents were bitterly opposed to the mar
riage and did everything they could to
persuade the daughter to break the
engagement with Reagan.
Finally, as a last resort, they de
termined upon a trip to Europe and
thought that by the time they returned
the daughter would listen to a request
and dismiss her finance. After several
months' touring in Europe and at the
Paris Exposition the Ralstons sailed
for New York, arrriving on the Deu
tschland Tuesday.
Meanwhile Reagan had been In
formed of the family's plans and he
hurried to New York to he there when
Miss Ralston arrived. He was in New
York nearly a week before the steam
ship arrived and completed his plans
to make Miss Ralston Mrs. Reagan as
soon after her arrival in New York as

M. Estee has arrived here ar.J spened
his court, and one of his first acts was
to make an order seizing a courtroom
for his own use, the local authorities
not having provided him with one.
Judge Estee ordered United States
Marshal Ray to take possession of a

cuit Judge Silman.
The order from Judge Estee came
after a good deal of correspondence
had passed between His Honor and Su
perintendent of Public Works J. A. Mc

ters for the United States Court. The
order created a great sensation among
the legal fraternity. It has raised the
point whether the United States or the
Territory of Hawaii is the owner of the
public buildings here. The matter will
have to be decided at Washington.
Judge Estee is doing quite a large
business in naturalizing citizens. Many

country cf their b'rth and they are now
taking advantage of the opportunity
afforded by the United States court A

Jealous Wife's Shot
Phoenix (Ariz.) Mrs. John Camp
bell, of Clifton, shot a young woman
named Mary Summerfield at Clifton
early this week. The motive was well-
grounded jealousy. Miss Summerfield
is the daughter of a respected citizen
of Clifton, and Campbell is an old
resident, being employed at the smel
ter of the Arizona Copper Company.
He became infatuaed with Miss Sum
merfield. and she received his atten
tions. Their relations were notorious,
and Mrs. Campbell remonstrated with
her husband in vain. A few davs be
fore the shooting, when she begged
him to give up Miss Summerfield, he
turned upon her an beat her.
Mrs. Campbell was at length driven
to desperation. The night before
Campbell had taken his children out
for a ride, and, taking Miss Summer
field into the buggy, drove about the
town. Next morning Mrs. Campbell
went to Miss Summerfield's home, and,
calling her to the door, shot her. The
bullet cut through the stomach, missed
the liver and lodged under the right
shoulder blade. She is still alive, but
it is feared that her wound will prove
Mrs. Campbell was arrested, but it
is the opinion of the community that

Stones and Swords Against Three
volvers-Party Plundered,
San Francisco. A number of refu

Durstler from Japan and Dr. and Mrs.
Malcolm and two children, Mrs. W.
MoClure and three children, Mrs. F.
W. Partch and child, Dr. and Mrs. J.
E. Skinner and two children andDr.
H. G. Welpton from China. Dr. Les
lie, who has no less than fifteen
wounds, on his body as a result of his
encounter with the Chinese, tells the
following story: '
"When the news was received from
the north by a special messenger that
the various Consols had ordered all
their people out of China immediately,
the following party started from the
mission in Honan: Mr. and Mrs. M. M.
McKenzie and child, Mr. and Mrs. J.
Goforth and four children, J. Griffith,
T. C. Hood, Miss M. J. Mcintosh, Miss
Dr. J. J. Dow, Miss M. A. Pyke, Mr.
and Mrs. J. A. Simmon and child. Mr.
and Mrs. R. A. Mitchell, Dr. and Mrs.
P. C. Leslie, and three American en
gineers, Messrs. Jamieson, Reid, and
Fisher, and myself.
"About the tenth day of our journey,
we were suddenly attacked by two or
three hundred yelling Chinese robbers.
The day before a part of our little
force had gone from us originally with
the intention of securing a military es
cort from some of the local Chinese
officials. Those who had left us were
Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Simmons, with their
little child, Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Mitchel
and the three American engineers. Out
of the eleven left there were only five
men, and among us five there were
only three revolvers.
"The two or three hundred Chinese
at first made a furious attack upon us,
bringing our carts to a standstill and
completely surrounding us. They
pelted us with bricks and stones and
anything they could lay their hands
on, at the same time slashing away
with their swords, those who were
thus armed, and yelling all the time
as so many maniacs. We brought our
three revolvers into play and fought
like demons to protect the women and
"I had one revolver In my right
hand. It was a six-shooter. I wanted
every shot to tell. Those who had the
other revolvers laid several Chinese
low in death before their wpapons
were knocked out of their hands by
stones and sword cuts. I killed two
Chinese myself, that is, I believe they
must have afterwards died from the
wounds I inflicted. But my active
fighting was soon brought to a close
by a vicious sword slash by an infur
iated Chinese whom I had wounded.
He cut me across the right wrist,
knocking the pistol from my grasp
and rendering the arm powerless.
"Most fortunately for our hard
pressed party, just as things were be
ginning to look hopeless for us, some
of the Chinese pounced upon our valu
ables. It was now evident that they
valued our belongings more than our
heads. They fell to fighting among
themselves and robbed us of every
thing we had- money, personal belong
ings and all, even going so far as to
tear off the skirts of the women and
cut the buttons off our clothes with
their swords.
"I have fifteen wounds as a result
of my encounter with the Chinese. My
whole body bears souvenirs of the
fight. I don't know if I will ever be
able to use my rifht hand again. I'm
going home to Montreal now with my
wife. Fortunately, my wife received
no serious injuries, a few bruises, that
is all; and the other ladies also hap
pily escaped without injury."
Rev. Brown Got a Rich Wife.
Toledo (O.) Rev. C. O. Brown, whose
sensational church trial stirred San
Francisco a few years ago, is in the
city with Mrs. Brown No. 2. His first
wife petitioned for divorce in Chicago
about two months ago. The style of
the case was "Mary Brown vs. Charles
Brown," and the grounds for separa
tion were alleged cruelty. Just after
the case came up for adjudication,
however, the pleadings were so
changed that they read, "Mary Brown
vs. Charles O. Brown," and the charge
was changed from cruelty to adultery.
The divorce was granted, and Rev.
Brown, on August G, married Mrs.
Mary 'Malloy, a wealthy and well
known lady. Brown came here a few
days ago to attend the annual reunion
of the Third Ohio cavalry, of which he
is a member. The couple are stopping
at the Jefferson Hotel, and will return
to Chicago in a few days. He has given
up the ministry, for the present at
least. So quietly was the divorce se
cured and the second marriage per
formed that it was never made public
until after the visit to this city.
