From tlie Boston Jou-n .1 of Commerce)
Take an hour of exercise to ev-ry pound
of food. We are not nourished by what
we eat, but by what we dit. Every
hour yo:i sieal from dilution will be re
claimed by indigestion. Beware of the
wrath of a pntint stomach! He who con
trols his appetite in regard to the quality
of his food, may safely indulge it in re
gard to quantity. The of teuer yon eat the
oftener yon will repent it. Dyspepsia is a
poor pedestrian, walk at the rate of four
or five miles an hour and you will soon
leave her behind. Abstinence from alt
Btituulenta is easier than temperance. An
egg is worth a pound of meat. Sleep is
aweeter after a fast day than after a feast
dav. A ood hair mattress contributes to
health, and ours are warranted or money
refunded. Our woven wire laee bed will
make you sleep. You will rest easy on
our chamber suits and parlor suits, be- j
cause you know thut you
boutrht from a
house that never swindles anybody ; no
successful house can afford to. We sell
more furniture than all the stores in tt is
section combined. Why ' Because we ,
have the largest stock, the newest styles,
and as every close buyer kuo .vs, the low
est prices. Our stoves and ranges are in
two hundred houses in Waterbury, and
soon they will be in the house of every
good housekeeper. We waited three yeais
to get these ranges because we knew that
they were tne best, we sell tnem trom if J
to f 7 less than any first class range in the
the market.

S:iy, John, are you a judge of pianos!
- Well now, l'oterl really that is laugh
able; why do ju usU?
Well, yon ee, Susie, the pet of our
house, is et'teu years old, and wife and I
have lieen thinking that as she is not very
strung it w. uld lie the proper thingto give
her a iiuiKiettl Kin atioii. You know, John,
when jou and I vm children attention
was not so murli in ili.it direction and it
was not cousidi -red so lutH'liof aqualitica
tion us tit .fesi'i i, . . ilou't wonder in the
least at the look of surprise that crosses
your face. Bui really, John, your wife
anked me to I. ring up the subject to you as
your Btie it. getting to be the right age
for a piano, as well: and she was of the
opinion that if we should decide to both
buy at once that Shouiuger would give us
a discount 1 understand they are very
reasonable with honest people who desire
a piano, and being honest themselves
that tiriu would be tile best to patronize.
What do yon think)
Why, Peter, 1 have been thinking for
s mie time on tne Ba ne subject, and 1
stepped into the store this morning and
requested Mr Pelham to give me a list of
nauii s comprising recent purchasers. He
very kindly and 1 must say a li;tle proudly
acceded to my lequest by bringing forth

THE LATEST HORROR:
Nova Scotia's Mine Explosion
is Simply Appalling.
THERE ARE NOW 117 DEAD.
Hundreds at "Work Bringing Out the
Bodies of the Killed.
In everal Families the Affliction is Vary
Great Bread wlnnor Ruthlessly Snatch.
d Away A Man Find Ills Three Sans
riled Together In a Heap-The Cause
of the Disaster Unknown.
Halifax, N. S., Feb. 23. Details at
hand from the terrible calamity which
happened at Spring Hill colliery show
that it was the most disastrous as re
gards loss of life that everbetell this con
tinent, with the posible exception of the
Scottsdale, Pa., explosion recently.
By Saturday night's explosion 117
lives were lost and 50 persons injured,
some fatally. Fifty-one were married
and 56 were single. One hundred and
fifty-seven children are fatherless. The
damage to property is not very great.
The horror is supposed to have been
caused by a sudden outbreak of gas.
The mine was inspected Friday by
government officials and a few days ago
by a committee of the miners and pro
nounced perfectly safe.
Killed by At er Damp.
The explosion was confined to "Nos. 6
and 7 balances," where it did its most
deadly work. The pits are connected
for purposes of ventilation and it is ow
ingto this that so many were killed in No.
2. The bodies taken out of the pit were
not mutilated in any way and bear evi
dence of having been suffocated by
after damp. Death from this cause is
painless.
ltrnve Volunteers.
Volunteers courageously took off their
coats and bravely undertook the danger
ous work oi rescue. Malcolm Blue did
splendid work in bringing out the in
jured. The Rev. David Wright, pastor
of the Presbyterian church, went down
to succor the relieving party, and re
freshed them with hot coffee. Three of
the rescuers were brought out uncon
scious from the effects of the after damp.
Scveial Families Sorely Afflicted.
In several of the families the affliction
is very great. Reid Carter and his two
sons are among the dead. The Car
michael family lose three sons. Jesse
Armishaw went down slope No. 2 last
night and found his three sons and a
brother piled together in a heap in one
corner of the mine. The sight so un
nerved him that he had to return to the
surface without his boys. Two sons of
Robert Mcvey, both under 14 years, oc
cupy one coffin. Hugh Hunt loses two
sons.
These sorrowful households are only a
few ot the large number from which
bread winners have been so ruthlessly
snatched. The deepest gloom has set
tled over the whole community and the
inhabitants were astir all night.
A special train arrived during the
morning from Westville and other min
ing centres in Pictou County with rela
tives of the dead.
Burnt d Past Kecociiltlon.
The large carpenter shop is nsed as a
morgue. The corpses are taken there,
cleaned, and "then laid out for identifica
tion by relatives and friends. In several
instances the charred remains have been
almost unrecognizable, and the only
clew to identification has been some ves
tige of clothing or some marks on the
body. Two cases of mistaken identity of
the dead are renorted.

QUEER DIVORCE CASE,
A Woman Kefusi-s to L.lva Wl b Her Has
baud Uecause He is a felon.
Asburt Pabk, N. J., Feb. 28. Ameri
cus Rogers, the 28-year-old son of ex
Postmaster Captain John Rogers, of
Hamilton, N. J., has applied to the
Court of Chancery for an absolute di
vorce from bis wife Mary, charging de
sertion. Mrs. Rogers has filed her answer to
her husband's petition, and Chancellor
McGill, who passed the papers over to
Vice Chancellor Robert S. Green, re
marked that the woman's reply was one
of the most unique he had ever come
across.
In her answer Mrs. Rogers says that
shortly after her marriage her husband,
who was employed as a clerk by bis
father, who was at that time postmaster
at Hamilton, was arrested for robbing
the mails. His indictment and convic
tion followed and he was sentenced to
two years and a half in State prison at
Trenton.
Mrs. Rogers in her petition takes the
stand that it was impossible for her to
live with her husband while he was in
prison and that after his release, some
three months ago, she could not do so,
as her friends would "queer" her with
living with a felon. So she refused to
do so.
Mrs. Rogers is a very handsome woman,
hardly 24 years of age. She is a decided
brunette and of stately form. Since her
husband's arrest she has been living at
Long Island City with her parents, who
are well connected.
Captain Rogers, the father of Ameri-
cus, is one of the best known farmers in
Monmouth County and is in comfortable
circumstances. Since Americus was
released from jail he has resided at
Hamilton, which is a small hamlet about
two miles west of Ocean Grove, N. J.
The hearing in the case will take
place at Freehold early next month.
WORLD'S FAIR EXPENSES.
Belief that All tbe Money Spent Will Re
Out Back In Gate Receipts.
Chicago, Feb. 23. Revised estimates
in regard to the resources and expendi
tures in connection with the World's Fair
show that the two will be nearly equal
that is, they should foot up about the
same, lhe total expenses for buildings.ad-
ministration and organization and oper
ation will be $17,65,000, and the re
sources, outside of the $5,000,000 sub
scribed by citizens and the $5,000,000
voted by the city, about $16,000,000.
It Is expected that S4,OUO,000 will he
realized from the sale of steel, glass and
stone material in the buildings, 41,500,-
000 from the various privileges and $10,
000,000 from the gate receipts, on the
basis of 50 cents for each person, admit
ted. The directors anticipate that the
attendance will erceed 20,000,000. In
this case the private subscribers and the
city will get back nearly every cent given
tor fair purposes.
MINERS READY TO FIGHT.
They Are Armlns Tlieinselves In Antlcl
patlon of Violence.
Beading, Pa., Feb. !:3. The miners in
the Houtzdale district of the Clearfield
region have decided to strike for an ad
vance of 10 cents per ton. The time of
probation for the operators expires on
March 5, and the general strike is an
nounced for that time. The Clearfield
and Philipsburg miners are arming
themselves in anticipation of violence.
A leading miner of the Broad Top dis
trict says that the miners in the several
districts of Pennsylvania are in constant
communication, which will facilitate a
general shut down when the signal for
the strike is given. The operators here
regard the threatened strike with fore
boding. Over 5,000 miners and mine la
borers will be affected by the strike.
Only Seven Jurors Secured.
New Orleans,, Feb. 23. The trial of
the Italians charged with the assassina
tion of Supt. of Police D. C. Heuncsy, is
proceeding very slowly in the Criminal
District Court. Though the case has
been on an entire week the attorneys for
the State and defense have as yet been
unable to secure a jury, and only seven
of the twelve men required have been se
cured thus far. The trial has developed
the fact that there are a very large num
ber of people in this city who iiave con
scientious scruples against the infliction
of capital punishment.
Furrell to airet Joe nicAuiiffe.
New York, Feb. 23. Patsy Farrell, of
Pittsburg, who has been industriously

Boat Was Launched But Crushed A
Fisherman's Family of Five Swept
Awy and Irowned,
San Francisco, Feb. 23. The captain
and 1? members of the crew of .the ship
Elizabeth were drowned just above the
harbor last night.
The ship, which carried a cargo from
New York, ran ashore at Tennessee Cove
while trying to make port.
This is an inaccessible point about
four miles from the city.
Details of the wreck are hard to ob
tain. As the point where the ship
stranded can only be-reached by land, a
climb of several miles over mountains is
necessary.
Tugs attempted to reach the vessel,
but were unable to do so. A heavy sea
was running, and the vessel soon went
to pieces.
Three sailors and the captain's wife and
two children escaped in a boat. It cap
sized, but they were picked up. A life
boat was launched, but was crushed.
The others went down with their ves
sel. The vessel was built in Newcastle, Me.,
and hailed from Searsport, Me. Her
agent in New York was D. B. Dearborn,
No. 2'J Beaver street. She was consigned
to Pendleton, Carver & Nicholson, San
Francisco.
FIVE LIVES LOST.
A Fisherman's House Swept Away
and
tbe Family Drowned.
Kansas Crrr, Mo., Feb. 23. The
heavy snow, which was followed by
rain, has caused an overflowing of the
Missouri River, and resulted in a casual
ty in which five lives were lost. Freder
ick Warner, a German fisherman, lived
on the river bank with his wife and
three children in a small house.
Last night the combined rain and high
water caused the house to be under
mined and it was thrown into the river
with the whole family. The cries of the
people aroused the neighbors and they
rushed to the spot, but were too late to
be of assistance.
The bodies of Mrs. Warner and her two
children were recovered about a mile be
low the place where the accident oc
curred, but Warner and the youngest
child were not it ound, and it is supposed
they were swept further down the
stream.

sion to the attacks upon him. and he
seldom showed signs of excitement.
tie addressed to his auditors a calm
and reasoning argument on the sub
ject of Irish home rule, and urged that
it would be absolute folly to accept any
thing less than the terms which he had
demanded. He argued that Ireland was
entitled to a parliament armed with the
fullest power to deal with Irish affairs,
and subject only to the sovereign veto;
that the land and the police should be
fully committed to Irish care, not after
an interval of five years, but immediate
ly npon the organization of.- the Home
Rule Parliament.
He advised his hearers to think for
themselves, as Irishmen, and not as de
pendent on the opinions and guidance of
any English faction or party.
Mr. Parnell was cordially received bv
the large assemblage, and rude attempts
to insult him met with no encouragement.
It is believed that Mr. Parnell intends to
pursue the calmly aggressive course
which he illustrated in this speech, and
that he will disappoint those who expect
to see him indulge in the bitterness which
ne 8b owed at Kilkenny.
It is said that William O'Brien will
strongly oppose the policy of the Irish
bishops, which, it is expected, he will
publicly condemn directly after he leaves
prison.
To tbe telegram received from T. P.
O'Connor to the effect that the great
majority of the Irishmen in America are
McCarthyites, is attributed the under
taking of a McCarthyita mission to that
country.
Bealy Mot Allowed to Speak.
Dublin, Feb. 23. Timothy Henly, M.
for Tyrone, and Jeremiah Jordan, M.
for Clare, tried to address a meeting
at Carrick-on-Shannon. The crowd
hooted and would not allow them to be
heard. The crowd was nearly all Par
nellite, and brought things to a close by
smashing the outdoor platform, from
which the speakers had attempted to de-
iver their addresses.
BIG LABOR MEETING.
Seven Thousand Trades Unionists Tura
Out for tbe Cardiff Strikers.
London, Feb. 23. The meeting in East
End Park in support of the Cardiff
strikers was attended by about seven
thousand members of the trades'
unions. The gathering was orderly and
respectable, and both speakers and audi
ence avoided any expression of dis
order.
Michael Davitt, who has just returned
from a ten days' illness in Ireland, was
the principal speaker. He urged that
all the workers in Great Britain should
be joined in one universal union for the
support of each other's interests.
The employers, be said, bad shown tbe
example in the Shipping Federation of
a vast combination for a mutual object,
and it was only, by a general and bind'
incr nledcre to support each other in their
just claims that tbe rights 01 tne worn-
men could be upheld. Mr. uavitt was
heartily applauded.
Mr. Tillett and others earnestly urged
that the workingmen of all trades should
come to the support of the Cardiff
strikers. It was, Mr. Tillett said, not a
local contest, but one in which the prin
ciples of trades unions were at stake.
A victory for tbe docK company wouia
affect more than the Dockers' Union.
Twenty bands of musio were presen t
and played at-intervals during the meet
ing.
