From the Boston Journal of Commeruel
Take an hour of exercise to evrry pound
of food. We are not nourished by what
we eat, bnt by what we digest. Every
hour you aieal from digestion will bp re
claimed by indigestion. Uen-are of the
wrath of patient etoiutu-h! He who con
trols hi appetite in regard to tht qua'itv
of bia food, may safely indulge it in re
gard to quantity. The oftener you eat the
oftener you will ropent it. Dyspepsia is a
poor pedestrian, walk at the rate of four
or five inilea an hour and you will soon
leave her behind. Abstinence from all
stimulenta is easier than temperance. An
egg ia worth a pound of meat. Sleep is
weeter after a fast-day than after a feast
day. A good hair mattress contributes to
health, aud ours are warranted or money
refunded. Onr woven wire lane bed will
make you sleep. You will rest easy on
our chamber suits and parlor suits, be
cause you know that you bought from a
house thut never swindles anybody ; no
auvcesof ill house can afford to. We sell
more furniture than all the stores in ttis
section combined. Why ' Because wo
have the largest stock, the uewest styles,
and as every clove buyer knows, the low
est prices. Our stoves and ranges are in
two hundred houses in Waterbnry, and
soon they will be in the house of every
good housekeeper. We waited three years
to get these ranges becunxe we knew that
they were the best. We sell them from $2
to $7 less than any first class range in the
the market.

Committee Th Woman's Council.
Washington, Feb. 25. A dispatch
from New York says that Secretary Fos
ter will arrive here this afternoon to
take the oath of office.
Senator Don Cameron did not attempt
in executive session to defeat the con
firmation of the nomination of Mr. Fos
ter to be Secretary of the Treasury. The
report that he did so grew out of the
fact that Mr. Cameron in conversation
announced his enmity to Mr. Foster and
said, in a casual way, that he would like
to aee him defeated. The man who did
postpone action on the nomination in
executive session was Senator Teller,
who acted merely in a perfunctory way
in order to make known the opposition
of the silver men to the selection of a
man holding Mr. Foster's financial views.
The family of the new Secretary of the
Treasury will be a decided acquisition to
the official circle. An Intimate friend of
the Fosters describes the Secretary's wife
aa a very sweet and gracious woman, with
wavy gray hair and an intelligent and
bandsome face, she has a lovely family.
and their home life has always been par
ticularly delightful. She is a careful
housekeeper, and is devoted first of all to
her home and family. Although of a re
tiring disposition, she has always yielded
to the social demands imposed by reason
of Mr. Foster's official positions, and she
la well qualified to maintain the disnitv
of a position in the Cabinet circle.
It is not expected that the family of
the new Secretary will take a house here
until next season.
rite Direct Tax Rill Passed by the Ilouie
After a Lone; Discussion.
Washington, Feb. S;5. The House after
routine business took up the Direct Tax
bill and after a long discussion it wns
mended, passed and a conference com
mittee appointed.
Ihe nomination of Charles Foster as
Secretary of the Treasury was confirmed.
Ihe conference report on the Naval
Appropriation bill was agreed to.
I be Senate passed the House bill, with

Carried Off by Heart Disease Last Night
In Wathlngtom
Washington, Feb. 25. Senator E. K.
Wilson of 'Maryland died here last night
at 10:05, in his apartments in the Ham
ilton House, of heart disease, in his 70th
Mr. Wilson was in his seat in the Sen
ate chamber last Saturday apparently
in good health and the news of his
death came as a shock to the commu
nity. He complained of not feeling well
on Sunday and yesterday, but his condi
tion was not regarded as serious until
late last night when he had a sinking
spell but he revived and was thought to
be out of danger. Later he grew worse
and hovered between life and death un
til about 10 o'clock when the end came.
Senator Wilson was born at Snowhill,
Md., December 22, 1831. He "was edu
cated at Washington Academy, Princess
Anne, Md., and was graduated at Jeffer
son College in Pennsylvania. He studied
law and practiced the profession for 20
years. He was a member of the Mary
land House of delegates as far back as
In 1885 he was chosen to the United
States Senate as a Democrat, succeeding
James B. Oroome. His term would have
expired March 3 next. He was re
elected in January. He was one of the
patriarchs of the Senate.
S cretary roster's Assistant.
Washington, Feb. 25. Although ex
Secretary Charles E. Coon, of New York,
is believed by many to be slated for As
sistant Secretary of the Treasury, in of
ficial circles it is though the place will
be filled by a member of the present
House, that being the only explanation
for the failure of the President to make
the appointment. Representative Gear,
of Iowa, who has been many years in
Congress, is being trged by his friends
for the place, while Baker, of New York,
Owen, of Indiana, and Cannon, of Illi
nois, and others are "on the card" for
something of this character.
Senator Jones Knew of No Fool.
Washington, Feb. 25. The Silver Pool
Investigating Committee examined Sen
ator Jones of Nevada. He testified that
he did not know of any silver pool, nor
hod he any dealings in silver growing out
of the effect ot pending legislation. This
probably closes the examination of wit
nesses. The Women Discuss Temperance.
Washington, Feb. 25. The morning
session of the Woman's National Coun
cil was devoted to the general subject of
temperance. Mrs. J. Ellen Foster read a
paper entitled "The Non-Partisan
National W. C. T. U," which was fol
lowed by Matilda B. Carse on "The Tem
perance Temple."

Pittsburg, Pa., Feb. 25. Despite all
protestations to the contrary, the ten

Company and its disaffected workmen

The determined refusal of the com
pany's officials to meet Arthur, Sargent,
Ingram, Clark and other workmen's offi
cers In their official capacity, and the
printed reply to their demands for a re
dress of grievances, refusing everything
asked for, has exasperated the workmen,
who declare that unless the company
manifests a disposition to compromise
matters the system will be tied up from
its eastern to its western terminus.
The company's officials say they do not
expect and neither do they fear a strike,
but are prepared for anything. The dele
gation of employes of the Pennsylva
nia road has investigated the demands
made by those of the Pennsylvania Com
pany and has approved them, thus as

Burlington, Vt., Feb. 25. The Bur

evening. The wind blew sparks across
the river, setting fire to Mason's lumber
yard in Winowski. Several tenement
houses were also burned.
The loss to the mill owners is $160,000;
insurance, $136,000. The flames spread
so rapidly that the employes were com
pelled to escape by ropes. In doing this
John Taylor was badly and perhaps
fatally burned. Nelson Young was also
badly burned, and Joseph Portoln sus
tained a bad cut on his thigh by a fail
from a rope.
At one time it looked as though the
whole village of Winoski must go, but
aid from Burlington finally put the fire
under control. The loss in Winoski is

The Remarkable Sentence Pronounced
by a Pennsylvania Jgd;e,
Huntington, Pa., Feb. 25. Justice
James Kelly, of this city, imposed this
sentence upon a couple tried before him:
"The verdict of the court is that the
wife retire to her usual place of abode,
and lock the doors so that no strangers
can be admitted for a period of six days;
that the husband for the same length of
time board with his next door neighbor
and sleep in the barn, and that each party
pay half the costs and stand committed
until the sentence is complied with."
The wife had kissed a man not her
husband, and her liege lord had soundlv
thrashed her for it.

Salisbury Tivlng to Drive the Irish
leader Out or Parliament.
Dublin, Feb. 25. Immediately after
Messrs. Dillon and O'Brien had been sent
to Clonmel jail, a Dublin solicitor, act
ing for the Marquis of Salisbury, took
out a summons for 1,700 in the Court
of Bankruptcy against Mr. O'Brien, that
sum being the costs which the Marquis
was awarded by the Manchester Court in
the libel suit, O'Brien vs. Salisbury. Mr.
O'Brien was served with the summons in
his cell in Galway jail.
The meaning ot this proceeding on the
part of Lord Salisbury is that Mr. O'Brien
shall be made bankrupt, and thereby de
prived of the privilege of sitting in Par
liament, unless cause be shown within
three weeks. Great indignation will be
aroused in Ireland should Lord Salisbury
follow out this action to the end.

Talk About the Next Pope.
London, Feb. 25. A dispatch from
Rome says that the gossip about a for
eign Cardinal being elected Pope is rub
bish. A large majority of the college are
Italians, and would not think of electing
anyone but an Italian. If a choice fell
outside of Italy, it would probably be on
the Corsican Cardinal Zigliara, who is,
of course, of Italian descent. Cardinal
Monaco la Valetta is the favorite, how
ever. The present Pope is in good health,
and there is no early prospect of a va
cancy. Newspapers which discuss the
subject are kept from the Pope. 4

Rome, Feb. 25. The statement pub

there is no question pending which
would require his presence in Rome. Two

A large number of witnesses have been

The Elliotts are locked in C corridor

many callers, among the first being
Father Mulhearn of the Cathedral, who

Their attorneys visited them also. . The
charge is still suspicion, though it may
at any time be changed to murder. The
police have established beyond a doubt
that Bill Elliott fired the first shot, and
they think that both the Elliotts shot
