Gomnsr Wiuao Thinks 1I Can Kara Mouaj by ParaiBiony. Landing, Mich., Oct. 2'. Statements sent out to the press last night relative to the Marquette prison are bo worded as to be ridiculous. It is given out that the new penal board may abolish that institution, transftrring its convicts to the prison at Jackson, where there ia still plenty of room. The board, al though in vetted with large powers, is not vet a bigger body than the State legislature, and could not, of course, repeal legislative enactments. A cor rect statement of the case is that Gov. Winans has an impression that the prison at Marquette was prematurely establ.shed and is maintained in de fiance of a policy of true State econ omy. He and the board will thor oughly investigate the subject and make such recommendations to the next legislature as they discover may seem to wurrant. Another thing to which the Governor and the new cen tral I'.oard of Control of State institu tionswill look into the oflice of State age, created in connection with the Mate Public School at Coldwater. There are no duties attached to the place which they think the county aceuUof the Hoard of Corrections and Charities cannot discharge with better results than he, and the office may be let without an incumbent by the new loard and his salary saved to the State.

The captain called all hands to the yawl and we were not five minutes from the schooler when she went to the bottom. The sea tossed us about in the yawl from 9 o'clock Monday morning until three in the afternoon. When we were about forty rods of! the Persian Islands, a heavy wave btruck the yawl and she capsized. The light for life among us was a te rrible one. A sailor caught mc by the neck and I was forced to hit hi in to free myself. I finally reached the Islands, nearly dead, where I remained two days with only the doad bodies of my shipmates for companions and nothing to eat until I was finally rescued by Simon Johnson and his fishing crew.

For three yeais James Hart, driver of an ice cart, lived happily with Jenny Hart, his wife. Six months ago, however, in conse quence of Jenuy's partiality lor Charles Holmes, a Coney Island bartender, Hart left her, and on Tuesday Mrs. Hart had her husband summoned to Essex Market Court to answer to the charge of abandonment.

THEIR GLAD SEW YEAR The Celebration of the Jewiah Holiday Begun. RABBI JESSELSOVS ABLE SEEM03 lie Draw a Ueaattfel flclare frtn the Wmi1 aid Adiuealsacm file Taople r tho letaM of Ttkto aad the Certaiutjr t licallt. The beginning of the new year 5C 32 of the Jewish calendar was u arked last evening with appropriate service at the Temple Kmanurl. The service from the Jewish prayer look was read, and Kabbi Jesselson an nounced that he bad takou his subject, "The Hook of Life," from the the text "lieraember Us for Life, O King, Who Delightestin Life, ami Inscribe Us Into the Hook of Life." The speaker said, "There is no hour in the whole course of timo that comes home to us with so much significance as this hour, which separates time from time, or unites the paft with the future. It is the hour when every man should pause and meditate, and render an account of himself. He looks around and sees the changes which time has wrought. He remem bers that one and another has been gathered m by tho great harvester, Time. Where but a short time ago he saw the rose-bush bud, and b'.oom, and spread its fragrance around, he beholds the decaying flowers, tho deserted twigs, the cheerless thorn, and he re members how quickly and unexpect edly the rose-colored cheek of the ten der human bud faded in the shadowy hue of death, and all that is left of the loved one is mouldering beneath some sand hill. He sees the tears of sorrow ing parents, whose chief possession on earth timo can never restore to them, and he sees the speechless grief of lov ing children who vainly wish to look once more into the dear faces of those who loved them best. Reminded of Death. Some of you think at this moment that preachers should tell you some thing more cheerful. Hut this is not the place for gossip. Every conscien tious pastor should remind" his people at least once a year that thcro is such a thing as death. If you would wish to turn your eyes away from the mournful monuments of tha past, would not a glance at your own hour glas tell you you had "pawed another portion of your life's journey. No matter how far away the ocean of your eternity may be. the rollings and plashings of its billows must reach your ear as you reflect upon this hour. The words of my text now rise wherever the scattered remnant of Israel are gathered before God to sanctify tho new year. Do you think such a Hook of Life is really m existence. Yes, it really exists not merely as a law of divine retribution. It is a book on which stands the recorded history ol every man's life ; a recoid of wishes fulfilled, or of hopes blasted; cf happiness or misfortune. Is not the countenance of man a Book of Life? We imagine ourselves unknown, when every Hour we are writing our most secret thoughts in tho enduring colors of life, so that all may read. Faces are as legible as books, with the advan tage t!i at it takes Ices time to read them, and they are less likely to de ceive. Every human contenanco is cither a history or a prophecy. In the contenance, more enduring than the marblo rock, is engraved the last word of a dead child. Well may sorrowing parents, and grief-stricken widows prav, "0God, inscribe us in tho book of life." Inscribed In the Rook. Tonder well this invisible, inward, yet active life. What the future may have for us, of joy or sorrow, sweet hours of happiness or dark visitations of trouble, it can not deprive us of what wo have had, if we aro inscribed in the Hook of Life. Dark and cheer less has been the path of our co-rclig-ionist in Europe for several years. Long dead hatred has risen from its grave and stands, specter-like, in tho broad light of day. Dark rascality has trid to strike out tho word Israelito from the Hook of Life. Hut wo will fear not, for God lives. May tho New Year be a blessing to us. May He who rules over time and eternity, dry our tears Ami change our sorrow into glad hps; May He? be with us in the days to come as in. Hays ,pat. May He re member us, and inscribe us into the Hook of Life." At the oJose of the sermonn the sol emn memorial eervico for the dead of the past year was read, and the con gregation wasdismisod with the bene diction. Then followed a general hand-shaking an exchange of compli ments of the New Year. Appropriate 'services will Us held today. Cliarle D. Cnlson Falls. Chicago, Oct. 2. Charles D.

Verdict of the Jury ia the Caaa af Fraak Mania. The coroner's jury viewed the re mains of Frank Martin, the bill-poster, who died from the tllects of the in juries he received from being run over by an electric car, and witnessed the autopsy. The post mortem examina tion revealed no internal injuries, but theie were evidences that be had been a hard drinking man, The opinion of the physiciaus who attended lum was that he died from the thock produced by his injuries. The jury rendered a verdict of accidental death, and found that no blame could be attach to the Street Kail way company or its em ploy t s. Too funeral of Mr. Martn will be held from his late residence, No. 1C3 Ottawast., at 2:30 Sunday afternoon. His age was 31 years. A Mervl'Ma sggetioa. It necetMarilj often happens that tha life of caU luuS't be taken, l'crbape it would be more agreeable to. most people ia tLls merciful age if all the kitteoa that ara born could be permitted to grow to ma tare eat hood and all the old cats left to die of old age; but ia the cast of at lea! four out of every five kittens it ia more merciful to kill them than to suffer them to live a miserable, starved, negleeted life. This being the case, it is tho duty of peo ple to put out of the way, in a merciful a manner as possible, the cut which must be killed. This result U mere eaUy at tained with chloroform, if it 1 properly used. Draw a stocking a knitted one If possi ble, because it ia more elastic over tte cat's head ao that the toe of the utocklng shall be brought as near the animal's head as possible. Then pour almost half a tea poonful of chloroform on the stockius, close to the cat's nose. Almost as soon as pussy has begun to wonder what it ia that smell so queer she goes quietly to sleep. Then a little more chloroform should be added, and fitill a little more; and she will never wake again. One finds that, instead of having the nine Uvea that cats seem to reveal when one tries to drown them, they really have but one. The cat may also be thrown Into the sleep of death by means of a spray of chloroform thrown by an "atomixer" or spray producer. Nothing is more cruel or dangerous than the laying down of poison for cats, which ia poruetlmcs practiced. And merciful per sons who have occasion to take rats in wire cages would do well to keep in a secure place an atomizer containing chloroform, by means of which the creature can be de stroyed without taking them out of their capes. Chloroform is very cheap, and enough may be bought for fifteen cents to kill three cat. In most of the states it is sold only under proper restrictions, and great care should, of course, be taken to prevent it from falling into the hands of young children. Youth's Companion. Daydawa In tha Country. I Ao not think that it is ever real morn ing except in the country. In the city, in the early part of tlje day, there is a mixed color that climbs down over the roofs op posite and through the smoke of the chim ney, that makes people think it is time to get up and comb their Lair. Butwermve real morning in the country. Morning! "descending from God out of Heaven like a bride adorned for her husband." A few moments ago I looked out, and the army of night shadows were striking their tents. A red light on the horizon that does not make me think as it did Alexan der Smith, of "tie barren beach of bell, but more like unto the fire kindled on the shore by Him whom the Disciples saw at daybreak stirring the blaze on tha beach of Gencsareth. Just now the dew woke np In tha ham mock of tha tree branches and the light kissed it. Yonder, leaning against the sky, two irreat nprights of flame, crossed by many mndles of fire!

'l don't know wLtther I fcave any thing that will interest you or not," said ex-Oevernor Luca to a reporter for the TrLCi.EAM lIi.s.AiJ last night at the Morton Houo. "You aea Vox talking to fans now. When I talk to fairs, 1 don't talk politics much. It isn't safe. A niau might get them riled and caua confus.on. ' 1 spoke at Cooierivir.e yesterday and at Lig llapids today. Next week I'm going up above fcagi naw to talk to fairs. I expect that kind of work will end then. I lind crops good and tha farmers in a prws perous condition wheiever I go. Of court-e this is truer of farmer iu tuo fouthern part of tho 8Ut than tlivh in the northern; but still 1 find there iu a profjterous coiidXon. 1 Late taken particular pains to inquire about the iHecis of the McKinley bill wherever I go. I haven't found the least bit cf iault found with it yet; and 1 haven't found a p!aco where anyone was pay ing a frcr.t more for anything this year than they did latt. n the contrary they are paying less for somethings. I heard considerable fault found with it last year. In fact everybody grum bl'.d about it; but there isn't anything of that character this ytar. I am stopping in the c;ty cn my wav home. 1 wrote Dwight Go, saj ing 1 would meet him here tonight in tecaid to my taking part in the coming cam paign in this district. I expect to help you what I can during the last week. The twelfth of this month I'm going down into Ohio to work. I shall rjeak there eight days. If 1 can help Mc Kinley any, you can rest assured that I shall do it. 1 don't know where I shad (peak; probably in the northern part of Ashtabula county. Of course tbt y will have mo speak to tne farmers. SVl.en I get through there, I shall come here to do what 1, can for your pople. Speaking of the McKinley bill.they toid me at Coopersville that Ford wlicm I honestly believe to have betnsincrre m his belief told them that this year la dies would be paying double prices for ribbons, dress goods, maps, and every thing of that character. Hut many of thete things can be bought now cheaper than they could then. Ncbody could tell what the eiiect of the McKinley bill would be. unt.l it was tried, but I believe 'people throughout tha country aro satisfied with it."
