The sight of an automobile killed a horse in Hellefontalne. Thus it es caped breathing the fumes. A Brooklyn waiter dropped dead when given a $3 tip. Another argu ment against the tipping evil. We don't know whether Mme. Anna Could Is wearing a Merry Widow hat or not, but it seems as if it would be appropriate. A Detroit woman dropped dead be cause she was called a crank, an ac tion which proved that, after all, she must have been very foollth. New York's hotel for women is closed, owing to a dispute over rent. The landlord probably lffuscd to mark it down from $400 to 399.9. Lack of confidence may cause many of our woes, but ovcrconfidence is quite as bad. as the fruit trees which blossomed too soon might testify. How will removing the free-lunch counter improve the American saloon? If that were taken out, men would have nothing to do in a saloon but drink. It Is reported that (he sultan of Turkey has bought th; famous Hope diamond for $400,000. Presumably its former owner knew enough to require a cash deiosit. Russia and Japan have practically forgotten that little unpleasantness. Russia has appointed M. Malevsky Malavitch as ambassador to Tokyo, and the strain is over. On account of hard times rigid econ omy must be practiced in the realm of the mikado. Mrs. Mikado may have to look up a cheaper place to buy her eggs and breakfast bacon. Birmingham Age-Herald: No. new army officer can hereafter be sworn in who is nbt 5 feet 5 inches high. This rule would have shut out Phil Sheri dan and one Napoleon Honaparte also. That tailor who asked Jeffries to black his eye as a souvenir of his visit to the Pacific didn't understand the game. Jeff couldn't think of giving a fellow pain if no gate receipts were involved. France sells automobiles in Great Britain worth about 100 times as much as the motor cars England mar kets In France. That ought to burst a tire or two on the wheels of John Sull'g conceit.

When salaries are raised the Ger man emperor does not like to be left out. The pay of his Prussian minis ters having recently been increased It is reported in Berlin that he Is about 1o ask that his own pay be raised "be cause of the increased cost of living."

Six state legislatures out of the 46 In the country have petitioned con gress to call a constitutional conven tion in order to secure an amendment providing for the election of United States senators directly by the peo ple.

Work was con tinued, and no employe lost a day. "Every ship In Admiral Evans fleet has beaten Its former record by a good margin."

An Interesting contribution to a new work on English synonyms was made by Senator Dolliver of Iowa, the other day. Asked by Senator Bacon If the provisions of the employers" liabil ity bill would not annul the state laws on the subject, he replied they "would sutersede" the state laws. Tressed to explain, he said "to annul a statute is to disregard It, to Ignore It and render it a dead letter, but to supersede it Is to overlay It with a greater Jurisdiction." Amidst laughter Mr. Bacon retorted that it was a distinction without a difference. LATEST NEWS OF Fl IAN FARMER'8 BOY WORKED BANKS ON FORGED CHECKS EASILY. BLACK HAND'.

Peter White, of Marquette, dropped dead at 9:45 o'clock Saturday morning on the sidewalk of the Fort street side of the Detroit city hall. The end came practically without warning, although Mr. White had complained of a pain in his side while in the city hall a few minutes before. He bad left the city hull for the purpose of resting through the heat of the day in the Ponfchar traln hotel and had just reached the sidewalk when he staggered and fell. A crowd quickly collected and James B. McKay, an old acquaintance, was one of those attracted to his side. He at once recognized Mr. White and com municated with friends of Mr. White. Among those who responded hurriedly were Henry M. Campbell, Henry C. Potter. Jr., Levi L. Barbour and sev eral others. The body was removed to the office of Mayor Thompson and taken from there to Hamilton's morgue to be prepared for shipment to Mar quette. Mr. White had attended a meeting of the board of regents of the Univer sity of Michigan.-of which he was a member, at Ann Arbor on Friday and came to the city Friday night.

Quinby. whose name will be forever identified with that of the Detroit Free Press, which he edited and owned for many years, died in Grace hospital Sunday morning at 9 o'clock, after an illness that extended over several years. The Immediate cause of death was shock from an op eration performed shortly after he en tered the hospital. May 22, but his health had been failing perceptibly since the death of his wife in 1905. His condition became serious about three months aco and since that time he was confined in his residence, or In the hospital. The operation dis closed the fact that his case was hope less and, apprised of that fact, the suf ferer awaited the end calmly. Mr. Quinby was born at Brewer, Me..

Jos. M. Brown, whom Smith deposed as railroad com missloner a year ago, won the guber natorial nomination by about 14.000 majority. The revolt against Smith Is inexplicable to many, as in his year In office he hss carried out his platform of disfranchising the negro and reg ulating the railroads. But there were many elements that Smith had made Inimical to him or that became Inim ical because of circumstances. Com bined they defeated him. Chief of all were the liquor forces. They fought Smith tooth and nail because of the state-wide prohibition law. The rail roads fought him because of his at tacks on them.

The canonization Thursday of Emile Zola at the Pantheon was marred by a owardlv, though unsuccessful, at tempt upon the life of MaJ. Alfred Dreyfus. Paris was thrown Into a panic, for It was at first thought that the president of the republic bad been shot down. Dreyfus was wounded, in the wrist and his assailant is a pris oner. The would-be assassin is Louis Ao thebne Gregorls, a member of the staff of La France Milltaire, a Journal de-, voted to military progress, and the military future of the republic. His act undoubtedly was inspired by the campaign which the reactionary press has been conducting against Zola as "an Jnsulter of the army" and "a tra ducer of his country." Furthermore the Catholic Faith, a paper to which Gregorls was attached, was a support er of Gen. Boulanger and violently op posed to Dreyfus. The government and parliament, when it decided to inter Zola in the National Pantheon beside Carnot, Vic tor Hugo and other great Frenchmen, realized fully that it was arousing the smoldering embers of Dreyfus hatred, but Premier Clemenceau and War Min ister Piquart, w ho attained his present position as a result of a successful out come of the long Dreyfus struggle, did not shrink from this final act of jus tice to the memory of the man who. according to Anatole France in his funeral oration at Zola's burial sir years ago, "represented the human conscience." Starving Russians. According to the Russ, Finance Minister Kokovsoff has sent a letter to the o&binet proposing the immedi ate issue of internal loan of $100,000. 000. to be applied as follows: Fifty million dollars to the deficit in the budget for $1908, $8,000,000 to famine relief and $30,000,000 to the ministries of war and marine, principally for the augmentation of munitions of war and military stores.
