DI2S MOINI2S , April 22. - ( Spe- clal Telegram. ) There will bo sonio new developments In the strike munition before the men all gx > to work Monday If .present prospects aio ful filled. Thu four mines which have so far refused to meet the demamla of the miners arc holding firm nnd say they will not try to operate their mines under such terms ns the miners demand. The minors , too , nro firm , nnd say they will not go to work unless the operators como to their terms. Both Rides claim to have won n \lctory and both claim complete control of the situation. At the Christy mine a lew men nro nt work , but an effort , It Is claimed , Is being made to have them como out until the Christy people agree to the eight-hour day and 85-cent scale. At the Caihondnlo mine the strike Is In full force ns far ms the operators are concerned , nnd they say they will stand out nil summer rather than accede to the demands. Three hundred men are out in this ono mine. They have given the union miners an ul timatum In which they give warning that if they don't resume work by Monday nt the old schedule they will operate their mine with nonunion men. Whether this means they will Import men they did not say , but by the miners It Is considered us a seilous statement nnd they soy that they don't be lieve there are nny of the operators who will attempt to bilng In outsldo miners. AV'hat their course would bo in case they did they nlso refuse to talk about , but U Is thought In many circles It would mean trouble. George LaSell , an I2nst DCS Molnos man , traded his wife for a horse , Ho let a ti aval- Ing hoise trader have her without "boot. " It seems that the men had been drinking and after agreement the tiader left the lty and the cast Bide cltl/cn took his horse home. His mother-in-law wanted to know whcro his wlfo was , but the husband did not Itnow. He said the last ho had seen of her iv HB In .1 wagon with another fellow driving toward Chesterfield. The wlfo Is only 20 years old , so her mother told Policeman ( ilbson , nml the old woman Insisted that there was some skulduggery when the trade was made , because the girl would not enter Into any such contract. .MoI'lirlitml tiisr. The McFailand case , as far ns the state Is concerned , will reaeh a conclusion In Us direct testimony Monday afternoon. Then will como the witnesses for the de fense and It is declared there will be con- sldoiablo testimony Introduced which will have an Interesting llavor nt least. Ttiu nature of the evidence that remains to bo Introduced by the atate will chiefly be ex pert to prove the value of clerical labo ? , fciich us wafl performed upon the census , nnd to show , if possible , that the clerks were paid salaries In excess of what would have been adequate payment foi the work This Is the chief evldeneo that It Is nec essary for the state to substantiate. H has lieen shown tlmt McFarland took money from the clerks Judge Holmes has ruled that Mr. McFarland was In charge of the tnKlng of the census and not the executive c"uncll and It now remains to bo proveii by' the state that ho paid the clerks ex cessive salaries and at the same time to show that ho did so with corrupt Intention of having a portion of the money covert to himself. B. A. Lantz , on Italian , who Is totally nnd hopelessly Wind , today brought suit against the LeGrand Stone Quarry company of Mar- Bhalltovvn asking ? 2ri,000 damages While employed by the company in November of 1897 ho was blinded by a premature blast and has not had his sight since. It Is u most pitiful case. On Monday or Tuesday the crusade against the saloons In this city will com mence. Superintendent Abrnms this mornIng - Ing made this declaration. He fcays he has given the saloons ample time to gather a petition within the bounds of the law , that they have failed to do so and now ho fee'fc lie should commence his action. When the matter was llrsl broached the superin tendent announced that after April 15 ho would commence action against the saloons unices they filed with the board of supervisors a petition In accordance with the revised code. Ho contends that they havei not acted and that as the matter now stands he must proceed and close them. Judge S. F. I'routy rendered n decision today In the district court In the paving case of A. H. Ustey against T. II. Hubbnrd , Involving the question of the constitution nllty of the Iowa paving laws. Judge Prouty takes a position decidedly In favor of the legality of the law. The -case In question was not Important in Itself , Involving merely the paving of an alley In North Dos Molnes. In the tilal of the case , however , the consti tutionality of the law was attacked on the theory that assessments must be made not In an arbitrary manner but according to the proportion of benefit derived by the ad joining propel ty.

Many of the phrases ono uses or hears every day , relates the Chicago Tribune , have been handed down to us from generation - oration to generation for hundreds of years and In many cases they can bo traced back to a quaint and curious origin. Ono of the oldest of those familiar expressions Is to "cut a dido , " which Is said of a person when ho plays a sharp trick , and carries us back to SOO years B. C. , when Dido , queen of Tyre , after the murder of her hus band by her brother , fled to the northern coast of Africa and founded a city. She bargained for ns much land as could bo surrounded by a bull's hide , and In order to claim ns largo a tract as possible she had the hide cut Into narrowBtilps , and on the land thus surrounded she built n citadel. The natives , seeing that they had been quietly outwitted by a woman , submitted ginccfuly to this "cutting of a Dido , " "There's many n slip 'tvvlxt the cup and the lip" Is nearly ns old , and Is attributed to Aneaous , king of the island of Samoa , in the Grecian archipelago. This king , no runs the story , had planted a vineyard , but ho had treated the slaves so badly that ono of them predicted that his master would never live to even taste of Its wine. When the vintage came , however , the king called for a cup of wlno and asked the blavo what ho thought of his prophecy. ' 'I think there's many a slip between the cup and the lip , " ho solemnly answered , Just at that In stant a messenger In hot linsto rushed Into the palace , Informing the Mug that a wild boar had broken Into the vineyard and was destroying It. Ancaeus put down his wlno cup untast-id and hurried out to at tack the rnvngor , but In the chase was killed. "Ho's a brick , " meaning n bravo and noble fellow- , doubtless originated with Agesllaus , king of Sp.irta , about 2SO n. C. A visitor at the Lacedaemonian capital was surprised to find It without walls or other visible means of defense , nnd asked his royal host what they would do In case of Invasion by a foreign power. "Do ! " the heroic ' ' replied king ; 'why Sparta has f > 0,000 soldiers and each man Is n brick. " "Done to a turn , " suggests the htory of St. Lawrence , who suffered martyrdom by being roasted on a gridiron. During his torture he calmly requested the attendants to turn him over , as ho was thoioughly roasted on one side. Ilcnco the phrase , "Done to a turn " In oim of the battles between the IluuBlnna and the Tartars , 400 yearn ago , a private soldier of the former cried out"Captain , I ve caught a Tartar" 'Bring him along , then " answered the oflkcr "I can t for ho wont let me , " was the response , tpon in vestigation it was apparent that the captured had the captor by the arm and would no\ release him. So "catching n Tartai" is ap plicable to one who has found an antagonist too strong for him. The familiar expression , "robbing Peter to pay Paul , " Is i onnettcd with the history of Westminster Abbey. In the early middle ages It was the cubtom to call the abbey St. Peter's cathedral. At one time the funds > of St. Paul's cathcdial being low , these in authority took sulllclcnt from St. Peter's to settle the accounts , much to the dissatisfac tion of the people , who asked , "Why rob St. Peter to pay St. Paul' " Some 200 years later the saying was again u&cd , In regard to the same collegiate churches , at the time of the death of the earl of Chatham , the city of London dcclaiing that the famous statesman ought to lie in St. Paul's. Parlia- 'ment , however , inblbted that Westminster Abbey was the proper place nnd not to buiy him there would be , for the second time "robbing St Peter to pay St. Paul. " The abbey properly carried the day. "Dying In the last ditch. " was , according to Hume , first used by William of Orange When Holland was so hotly presbod by her enemies that complete disaster seemed Im minent , the duke of Buckingham Implored , the prince to change his tactics or the coun try would bo ruined. "There is one way to prevent my seeing the ruin of my coun try , " answered the prince , "I will die In the last ditch. " "Ho has an ate grind " Early In the century the story was told of a lad who was induced by a promised reward to turn the grindstone for ono who wished to sharpen his ax. The promised payment was not made Slnco then , ono who dis guises his selfish alms by false promises Is said to have an ax to grind. " 0. K. " has many alleged origins. Thfi most probable Is the followingIn 18-10 , when Ah ah Adams organized the Adams Express company , a young country lad ap plied for work. Ho was employed to do all sorts of odd jobs and make himself gen- 1 orally useful In the office. The boy had an observant eye , nnd saw that the shipping I clerk placed upon the manager's desk each night a list of the packages marked "all ( correct" The clerk being absent ono day , i the boy was asked to wrlto the list , 01 , rather , to check It. When ho placed it on the desk It bnro on the outside the letters i " 0. K " Asked what they meant the youth replied : " 'O. K. ' means 'all correct. ' " Mr. Adams enjoyed a hearty laugh and adopted the striking abbrovlotion thereafter. "Cut and run" originated In a peculiar custom of the Egyptian embalmers. A low- caste was employed to make the first In cision in the corpse , a process viewed witli muc.li dislike by the people , who held him nccurfced wno shold mutilate the dead. As soon ns the fellow had made his "cut" bo had to run , through a stoim of curses , stones and sticks.
