Murder Most Foul. Phoenix (Ariz.) A message just re ceived here gives the first particulars of the horrible murder of W. S. Mof fatt, at Harisburg last Saturday. San tiago Oritz, the murderer, found Mof fatt asleep, and beat him to death with a steel drill, chopping his head to pieces. The murder was discovered Sunday morning, and a posse captured Ortiz late the same day, twenty-five miles this side of Harrisburg. His horse had given out- Five hundred and fifty dollars in cash and checks were found on him. The sheriff is en route to Yuma with the prisoner. The ! killing occured in the most desolate part of Arizona, with no telephone or telepraph facilities within seventy five miles. A printing press called the "cylinder hand press" has been invented by L. B. Woodruff, editor and proprietor of the San Miguel Messenger of San Luis Obispo county, and proprietor of the San Lucas Herald of Monterey county. The new invention is claimed to be much swifter and lighter in running than the ordinary hand press, and can print from 400 to 500 copies an hour. Mr. Woodruff's wife and little child are said easily to run off the weekly edition of the San Miguel Messenger on the first rude machine manufac tured after the model and made partly of wood. The Stockton ' Mail relates that "Babe" Bean, the young woman who dressed in man's clothes and served with the volunteers in the Philippines, is now very anxious to go to China, and will probably do so if she recovers from her present illness in time. Sufferers from this terrible malady nearly always inherit it not necessarily from the parents, but may be from some remote ancestor, for Cancer often runs through several generations. This deadly poison may lay dormant in the blood for years, or until you reach middle life, then the first little sore or ulcer makes its ap pearance or a swollen gland in the breast, or some other part of the body, gives the first warning. To cure Cancer thoroughly and perma nently all the poisonous virus must be iliminated from the blood every vestage )i it driven out. This S. S. S. does, and is the only medicine that can reach deep leated, obstinate blood troubles like this. When all the poison has been forced out of the system the Cancer heals, and the disease never returns. Cancer begins often in a small way, as the following letter from Mrs. Shirer shows : A small pimple came on my jaw about an inch below the ear on the left side of my face. It gave me no pain or íuconven ince, and I should have forgotten about it had it not begun to inflame and itch ; it would bleed a little, then scab over, but 'yrould not heal.

Writeaj Claude Haynea, a full-blood Kiowa Indian, claims distinction as the first red man to compose and publish the words and music of songs and, some of them are pretty good songs, consid-j ering the fact that the composer Is an Indian. One of these songs Is called "The Wooing of an Indian Maiden." It tells how a white man succeeds In win ning the heart of a daughter of the red race, and Is a really creditable produci tion. Young Haynes wears the costume of his tribe, and It is only occasionally; that he can be persuaded to put on the white man's clothes. He Is now 25 years of age. When only 15 years of age Haynes CLAUSE BATHES. .composed a song for the ghost dancer of his tribe. He said he went Into (trance and the great spirit gare hinj Ithe words, as follows: I scream because I am a bird. 4 I bellow like a buffalo. The boy will rise up. The father shows me the road. I went to see my friends. I went to see the dances. His people said at once that he was going to be a great prophet, but he said, that the medicine was not right foi him. They Insisted and honored him, :by singing the song at all their dances. The medicine man took him out into 'the mountains alone and they made re .quests of the Great Spirit. But it was no use. The medicine was not right, ;and Haynes turned out to be a common clerk in a store instead of a great prophet He has quit making medicine songs and devotes his attention to lova sonnets. ; A carrier pigeon flying with a strong wind covers 1,G00 yards per minute.

O. j McCray, "I would simply say, 'I give you the orange,' but should the trans- action be intrusted to a lawyer to put in writing, he would adopt this form: ! 'I hereby give, grant and convey to you j all my interest, right, title and advan- j tage of and in said orange, together with its rind, skin, juice, pulp and pips, ; and all right and advantage therein, j with full power to bite, suck or other wise eat the same, or give away with , or without the rind, skin, juice, pulp or j pips, uii imug iieieiuoeiure or m any other deed or deeds, instruments of any nature or kind whatsoever to the con trary in any wise notwithstanding." A Pleasant Letter. It takes a clever man to find a good word to say on every occasion. It is said of Thomas Bailey Aldrich that he ;once received a letter from his friend, Prof. Edward S. Morse, and found the .handwriting wholly illegible. Mr. Al drich was not at a loss for au answer. In due time there came to Mr. Morse the following reply: j My Dear Morse: It was very pleasant jto receive a letter from you the other iday. Perhaps I should have found it 'pleasanter if I had been able to deci pher it. I don't think I mastered any thing beyond the date, which I knew, land the signature, at which I guessed. I There is a singular and perpetual tcharm in a letter of yours it never Igrows old, and it never losses its nov elty. One can say every morning, as one looks at it, "Here is a letter of Morse's I haven't read yet.. I think I shall take another shy at it to-day, and ;maybe I si-all be able in the course of a few years to make out what lie means by those t's that look like w's. and j those i's that haven't any eyebrows." Other letie;s are read, and thrown away nnd forgotten, but yours are kept forever unread. Oue of them will last a reasonable maa a lifetime. "Virtuous" Hats in Santiago. An enterprising native shopkeeper in Santiago displays over a great heap of headgear the sign, "These hats are vir tuous."

North, j who, less than tea years ago, was ; .known as the wealthiest man in Somer-! ville, Mass. From the upper windows of the family mansion on Prospect Hill, the fashionable residential section of the city, and in which he now occu pies only two rooms as a tenant, can be seen a large pork-packing establish ment in the valley, with his name in NORTH AND HIS WAGON. great letters on its business sign, over which he was for many years proprie tor. In striking contrast his name ap pears in small letters on the peddler's cart in which he carries produce through the streets of the town. . Charles II. North was born in Ver mont, of poor parents, who, while he was quite young, moved to Georgia and later to Kentucky. Coming to Massa chusetts when 18 years of age, he went to work in a 'Yalthau. bakery, earning enou?h to take a year's course at an academy. Then he started to learn the pork-packing business, and inside of a year was able to open a stall of bis own. He was successful from the start ana rapidly gained prominence. In 1SC7 he opened the establishment at i Somerville. Familiar with every detail ! of the business he gave it his personal Attention and gradually added to his plant until the name of Charles II.' North was known all over the country. In 1S00 he was employing 1,300 hands. The change came when Mr. North merged his business with that of the Swifts. Then followed schemes In which money went rapidly, such as gold mines in Nova Scotia and the pur chase of a pork-packing establishment in Omaha. North still maintains that these were not losing ventures, but that he found his money tied up and others reaped the benefit. However that may be, he is now earning his livelihood as a peddler of provisions. Every morning he Is up with the sun, caring for his horse and doing other chores. Then he purchases his stock and starts out, sel dom returning before dark. Thysically North is a remarkable man, and even now at the age of OS he boasts that he is good for a five-mile swim.

Before the liberation from the Spanish yoke they were not occu pied with anything beyond the gowns and the evening promenade. But since the Americans came among them the 'fair Cubans have taken to ideas and otbcr unusual things. The spirit of in- dependence is aroused and they want tneir rights. They even tried to vote at the recent election. This was to have been expected. A little liberty whets the appetite for more. In using It women often mistake and the Cu bans will probably fall Into the blun ders which come of inexperience. But that their lives will be richer, freer, better ordered and altogether more de sirable, is naturally to be expected as a consequence of the American occu pation. I "I die proclaiming the Christian faith," declared M. de Giers, in the face of the fearful death which the Chinese demons had prepared for him. M. de Giers was a diplomat by profession, hot known as a religious man, although ho doubt a sincere adherent to the creed in which he believed. Probably in ordinary life he neither displayed nor felt any ardent devotion to Chris tianity, and when, if ever, he read of the sufferings of martyrs in the past, ; he regarded the proofs of their devo tion as superhuman and 'miraculous as not to be thought of in association with his own sentiments, conditions or character. But when the hour of trial came to M. de Giers, the polished statesman and man of the world, the confidant of a Czar and scion of a princely house, he was equal to it He rose to it with all the courage of the victims of Nero and Diocletian, and in the face of his tormentors he exclaim ed: "I die proclaiming the Christian faith" Infidels may mock and sneer at religion; they may probe its teach ings and analyze its dogmas with the chilling logic of a Paine or an Ingersoll, but they canssot uproot from the hearts of men the anchor of hope, of faith and trust in that Christianity which g;ave strength and consolation alike to the martyrs of the Coliseum and of Pekin, and which animated the world ly man of affairs, confronting death in Its most hideous form, with the cour age of a St Lawrence. David Starr Jordan does not think that a college training unfits a woman for the severer discipline and humbler duties of matrimony, and he says that the half-educated woman is exposed to more dangers and Is more susceptible to the "higher foolishness" than is her i better balanced and more brainy sister. i These, of -course, are truisms, but they I are truisms that have to be driven home at regular intervals. For there Btill prevails a popular superstition that i2é coiítíge-bred wife will have' her head in a book when her hands ought to be in the dough, and that she Will permit te dust to gather on the whatnot while she is putting whatnots Into her brain. But the truth is that it Is often the untrained mind that is most squeamish about touching dust and dough and thinks both of these be neath the dignity of a ladylike wife, And is it the college women who make up the audiences at the sensational melodrama of the day, and are they the ones to be caught by the chaff that fills many of the modern novels? The ad vantage that the college woman pos sesses over her untrained sister is that she may have her hands In dough while her mind is still pursuing the "flying perfect," and under such conditions neither her spirits nor her bread are apt to grow bavy. Of course, in the matter of right living, common sense is the Best of advisers, and this may be the glorious possession of both the trained and the untrained mind. But If there Is one thing more than another that mental discipline is supposed to insure it Is that good thing, common Bense, Steel rails weighing eighty pounds. to the yard were first used upon railroads in this country In -18S3. Since that time steel has practically superseded Iron as a track-building material and the weight of the rails has tended constantly to increase. Now one Of the great trunk lines is experimenting with nickel steel, which is even more expensive than steel, but which will the claims made for it are justified. Improvements in railway roadbeds have naturally been followed by more capacious cars, heavier trains, 6Wifter locomotives. For instance, it is only three years since pressed steel freight- cars were introduced; yet the company j that builds them cannot supply the de mand, although it works up more than a thousand tons of steel a day a larger- quantity, in the course of the year, than the entire production of steel In, the United States In any year previous- to 1875. One of these cars will carry: fifty tons of ore. A slightly smaller car has a capacity of thirty tons of grain. A New York railroad's fa mous "grain trains" consist of eighty cars of this capacity, drawn by a sin gle locomotive; trains thirty-three hun dred feet three-fifths of a mile long,' and weighing from thirty-five nun-, dred to thirty-eight hundred tons. When it Is possible to make up trains like this, a railroad can give "phenom enally low" rates of freight on long distance hauls, and still make money. But only a perfect roadbed could bear! uu,u, i the passenger express sent out by the V,vt ful U IWU, 11 1 V Lí VI 1 11. 11 I. 11,1,11. a speed between stations of seventy- five miles an hour, "with occasional spurts as high as ninety miles." All these facts may be condensed into one proposition. In these days of competí-, tive progress, the railroad that is prop erly built and adequately equipped is the only railroad that is likely to! prove both useful and profitable. And that is as It should be. The report in a leading scientific jour nal to the effect that a French inventor. had perfected a process for utilizing' fish scales in the manufacture of "pearl" buttons and other articles that partake of the nature of pearl will be regarded incredulously by many who are somewhat familiar with the many attempts that have been made by chemists to convert this waste product into some useful substance. The fish scale is about the only offal Incident to the preparation of food products that! has not been utilized in some way, andj whether the French Invention is a suc cess or not it must soon yield to the inexorable trend of modern industrial economics, which proposes to allow: nothing to go to waste. Most people are familiar with the fact that buttons are now made out of the blood of slaughtered animals, which formerly1 was allowed to go to waste. Indeed,; the packing Industry has been brought: to such a high degree of perfection that every portion of the once discarded offal of pigs and steers is now made! Into something useful to contribute to! the comfort of mankind. A few years' ago a chemist came along and told! Philip Armour that he was wasting thousands of dollars by throwing away i the stomachs of pigs, which contained pepsin. These stomachs were then shipped to New York, but Mr. Armour was finally induced to build a labora- tory of his own for the manufacture of j pepsin. As a result of this addition to i their vast industrial establishment the j Armours have revolutionized the pep-; sin industry and have conferred a) priceless boon upon dyspeptic human-; ity by placing a commodity that was; formerly Imported from England with-! in reach of the poorest sufferers. Even ' the hair scraped from the skin of the slaughtered animals Is made by the Ar- mours into a thick cloth that is vaiu-! able in the manufacture of saddles and cushions for vehicles. Coal tar, a by-; product of the manufacture of gas, was formerly regarded as of little value. Many gas factories, in fact, sent it to; a near-by stream through a waste pipe. ; This product has now become one of I the most valuable by-products known to productive industry. Its contribu-: tion to chemistry and therapeutics is the marvel of the age, to say nothing of Its utilization in the mechanical arts.: It will be one of the distinguishing features of our industrial progresa In the twentieth century that inventiva genius will allow absolutely nothing to go to waste. A Believer's Pleasantry. Science and faith do not come Into real conflict, but now and then their separate claims may be somewhat cu riously contrasted. It Is related by a Washington correspondent that the' Hon. George Q. Cannon of Utah, who takes deep Interest In everything con nected with irrigation, was once in at-. tendance at a convention held to con sider that subject. ,: At this meeting a certain delegate read a sleepy paper on artesian wells, which, he maintained, as sources of water supply for irrigation, are limited by the fact that when they strike ledges the water supply gives out. "They produce water," he said, "but they don't produce it when they strike the rock." This statement he repeated,' and challenged any one to deny It. At this point Mr. Cannon struck In. "How do you account for Moses' suc cess?" he asked, simply. And the ora tor had no more to say on the subject. His Assets. The badgering lawyer sometimes suc ceeds only in affording the witness an opportunity to show off his own wit at the lawyer's expense. And then the spectators are happy. A certain actor was before the poor debtor's court in New York, last winter, and testified that his only assets were his salary as a member of the Blank Company. "But you must have something else," said the prosecuting counsel. "Tell the court what else you have." "That's all." "What no personal property?" "Oh, yes, a dog and a watch." "Now think hard. What else?" per sisted the attorney, believing he was on the right track. "And a case of rheumatism," said the witty witness. Sandalwood in Hawaii.

Then, when I was about to stir up the mud at my feet, to avoid being seen, I discov ered that the enemy was nothing more ; than a fellow-diver. The feelers I had iimagined were his arms, legs and lines, j A shadowy giant about twelve feet ;hlgh, with huge hands and a head like ;a small barrel, was approaching. He walked slowly, his heavy boots raising the mud behind him like a cloud of dust, and his great central eye gleamed darkly.
