A posse of police, accompanied by Tonr Foote, who a few days a so discovered what '-. believed to be the remnant of a woman' dress while fishing In Cut-Off laYe, yesterday prosecuted a diligent drag- net search of the lake to e If a body can he Drought to the surface.

Mr. Foote la ln heri, the police say, to be mysterious In gard to the location of the exact spot here he fished out the woman'! aklrt. The finding- of the Arena fragment!, which re auppoaed to have wrapped the body of 4 re. Idella Roae Knight, revived Intereat n a murder myetery regarded by the police i the moat perplexing they have had to leal with. Although the police were pot hie to exact from the auepecta In their ustody any admlaalon of guilt they con ended that the circumstance disclosed the fetalis of the unquestionable murder of lire. Knight by her huaband, F. E. Knight. Story o rMsnpepnrnne. It will be remembered that Mr. Knight va missed by nelghbora about April JO of hla year. Mm. Knight had been 111 and vas not atrong enough to be out of bed nuch of the time. When the police vlalted he-Knight dwelling at 2225 North Twen- leth street the doom were fastened and he huaband waa leaving the place. Re 'aid that he waa Knight and that fears Uncut the whereabout of Mr. Knight Jvere foolish, because aha had been taken o a hospital. Accepting this statement aa explanation be police returned to the station, but In- tulry by the chief disclosed that Mrs, Cnjght was not at the hospital. Meantime iKnlght had vanished. Investigation by de- ectlves disclosed that a few evenings be ore Knight and Met Dusenberry, a hunch iack teamater, drove from the Knight iwelllng to the river bottoms, conveying In Ousenberry's rattletrap wagon a trunk or ox. Knight was known to have been infatu- ited with Jennie Dusenberry, a alster of he teamster. After Knight's disappear i nee a letter came from him to the Dusen irry woman's mother, telling her that vtrs. Knight prepared a cup of poison for film and that he switched cups. "You know the rest," read the letter. Polio Sueneet Knight. Mrs. Lucinda Dusenberry and her son Mel were held at the police station many lays and examined closely. ' The police ame to the belief that Knight poisoned hla wife, hauled her to the river bottoms and here either weighted the body and threw t into the river or burled It In the sands where winds shifting the sand about make t Impossible a few houra after digging to telt where the spade penetrated the bars. Knight waa traced to Denver, where he visited Jennie Dusenberry. A few weeks ago the police thought he had been seen In Des Moines. Jennie Dusenberry a few months ago came to Omaha and married a Nebraskan. The police hope that the alleged discovery bk .Mr.' Foote wilt throw, light upon the 1 aught case and will -follow up the matter, wishing to relieve their own apprehensions as well aa those of Mr. Foote. Foote's reti cence about his find Is said to t prompted by his fear of loalng the flOQ reward of fered for the recovery of Mrs. Knight's 'body In event the body Is found In Cut-Off lake. 1 Identification would bs Impossible, ac cording to Captain Mostyn, who Is aoting chief during the absence of Chief Donahue. The officers made no tangible discoveries and soma were n favor of abandoning the search altogether or procuring a com plete outfit for prosecuting a systematic search. It is said, however, that authority to do this will have to come from Chief Donahue, who Is now out of the city. BIG. MEETING ELECTION EVE Hepnblieaaa Will Gather la Walk .

Commends Grain Market Plane His Road's Jew Depot. "I think President Stlckney will not en counter any great trouble In establishing his grain terminals and gaining hla point In view In Omaha," said General Manager Arthur W. Trenholra of the Minneapolis St Omaha, who was at tbe Union depot yesterday. "Be has the right Idea about trying to locate elevators and mills where they can have the advantage of chipping over more than one road and at the same time aave switching charges. Our road has now con slderable land In Omaha which we would offer as freo sites to manufacturing con cerns wanting to locate, but It is desirable that -they obtain a place where they may ahlp ever more than ons road, thus saving the switching charges. 'It Is the Intention of our line to build a new freight depot la Omaha during the next year. We should have reached It this season, but on account of very heavy work on other parts of our road the project waa abandoned until next year. The present structure will be torn down and the new one will stand on the same location. It will be a brick building and may possibly be two stories high. Th basement will be fitted up as a cold storage department and the entire building will be considerably larger than the one now In use. The track age will likely be increased In the city limits and a remedy will be offered to do sway with the freight congestion. This has not been definitely decided upon, however. and I do not give it as a sure thing. A great amount of work has been dons out along th line this summer and that having all been completed for the year we have laid off too to 800 men, which 1 following our usual custom. We are short on cars to move the shipments, not that we do not have enough cars, but it Is because they are sent away full and do not return quick enough." DRUGGISTS FORM COMPACT Agree Rot t Cat Prices I'nlese It Is Don ky All In th Combine. Downtown druc stores that have been rivals In claiming to be the "only cut rate pharmacy In th city will not cut and slash quite so freely In the future. For the pub lic eye and for their own gain they will lower standard prlcea on standard wares whenever they see fit, but It will be done by agreement, and each, will know what th other Is doing. Heretofore when on druggist advertised certain proprietary medicines at a cut figure It baa been usual for competitors to go him 1 or 1 cents better. Retaliation ai ways took place and sometimes the apoth ecaries were getting rrid of goods at 1 than they cost them so they assert Now with a community of Interests un derstanding affairs will be tranquil. Each store will have Its turn and share In the cutting, but there will be no leaping at one another's throats and real knifing of prices ss In the past. Maybe th publlo will not be any the wiser at least It will be Informed of reductions as heretofore, but unless the move Is prearranged, no other druggist will go below the original reducer. DEBATE PUBLIC OWNERSHIP Ontakn an Catena; Hlgfk Sckeol Stadents Will Meet Her Friday. This question for the coming debate be tween the Omaha and Chicago High schools has been selected: 'Resolved, That municipalities should own and operate, their street railway sys tems." Th Omaha debaters are Joseph Swen- son, Richard Hunter and Ben Cherrtngton, the same team which was sent to Chicago last June. Th Chicago team is composed of Charles Parks and two member of last year's team, Maurice Burr and Arthur Meyer. Th fact that th same six debaters, with one exception, are to meet again, this time in Omaha, makes the contest doubly Inter esting. The commute in charge of the arrangements has provided a musical pro gram, Including a solo by Jules Lumbara and selections by the high school violin quartet. Prof. Fogg of the university will act ss one of th Judges and give a fifteen- minute speech on the value of debating and publlo speaking. Superintendent Pearse will preside. Tbe contest takes pao next Friday evening In th Kounta Memorial church. WOMAN IS LEFT DESTITUTE Mather Sua Five Children, Penniless, Await Retarn nf Bnaband, Wanna They Lost. 1 Acting Chief Mostyn has a letter from Lincoln Informing him that a woman and five children are In that city destitute, and that the woman, Mrs. Mary Blake, recently cam from Ohiowa, la., and claims to have a daughter II years old In Omaha. Ths woman says she was told by her husband to go to Lincoln when he left her two weeks sgo and he would meet her there. The husband haa failed to ahow up and the Lincoln authorities want the chief to try and locate him In this city. The woman's daughter residing here is a Miss Francis Blake, and la rooming In some house on Howard street The mother was unabls to give the exact number of her daughter's residence.

He did this at a house under wey on South Nlnteenth street Friday and the permit, coating 14, was taken out Saturday . morning. WOMAN OF ROYAL ANCESTRY sir, kftrj 0 Gomes., Couiin of Fresco Presidio, nod Bapolecn't Trie! SHE MAKES PROTESTS AT THE CITY HALL- Cm plains tn Balldlnsj Inspector that City Defrnnded Her ana Kw Seeks t Rnla an Kmeel lent Barn. The cousin of Marshal MacMahon, second president of Franc, and the well-beloved friends of the third Napoleon, had a com plaint coming against the building depart ment Friday. Mrs. Mary O'Qorman. who always pay her S1.2DS city taxes the first of any woman. Is the cousin. So she says. Mrs. O'Qorman spent yesterday In th city hall waiting for Building Inspector Wlthnell. Unsuspectingly he entered th office at noon and the cousin of Marahal MacMahon entertained him with tales of her former huaband, the late Mathew A. Carroll, at one time captain of the Queen's Life Guards In the tight little Isle. After checking up European history from the time that MacMahon saved the day for Napoleon III at Magenta through the reign of Quean Victoria and down to th period when Mrs. O' Gorman claims to have been defrauded out of 160 acres of valuable city property, due lb 1st honorable Captain Carroll, Inspector Wlthnell escaped. This was about 1 o'clock In the. afternoon. Saturday morning he was seen on the streets, having kept under cover In th Interim. Mrs. O'Gorman, however, was concerned more about what ah calls a barn at BIO Nicholas street than the deceased Mac Mahon. The Advisory board has declared th barn, also, deceased, and ordered It removed before th force that Sir Thomas Newton dlacovered reduces It to th earth from which It sprung. ' In the Woodpile. Why," aald she, "the barn Is ' a good barn an' shure Oi cud hold a dance on th' second flure without danger to ayther the occtpants or th' structure. It's there out In th' prairie three blocks from aany house and doln' no on harm. . Ah! OI know why I'm called here to de find me rights. 'Tls this way. There was a mane, nasthy nagur a stealln th' barn panel be panel, an' Inch be Inch, an' I ca-aught the' nagur at his thrlcks. I chased him up beyant ths Kellom school, an' he nlver had th' nerve to come back. But I found his tlmmyhawk ah' It was a good lmmyiawk, too, wurth a dollar. Now the nagur Is afther revenge and he thries to pull down me Innocent little barn." The building department has a picture of that barn It Is the worst picture in a big collection of structures that have forgotten why they were built, and the building department says the barn must go to the scrap heap, Mrs. Mary O'Oorman notwith standing. It has not been used for years. STICKNEY MAKES SUGGESTION Propose torn Changes In th Sohed- 1 f Entertainment of Millers Delegation. The Commercial club entertainment com' mlttee has received word from President Stlckney as to the program here of the Minneapolis millers. Hs favors the electrio cars for a tour of th city, as they are more rapjd than the carriages, and favors tbe making of acquaintances and generaj conversation. Hs does not particularly care to have these men visit th land which hs has purchased for the grain tracks, but rather desires a general Inspection of ths city and a noon meeting with th bankers, grain men and other business men at the Commercial, club. A luncheon will be served there, and Mr. Stlckney will make a talk of some length, the party not rising perhaps until about i o'clock. As th Min neapolis men do hot depart until after 7 o'clock, it Is probabls that a dinner will be given at the Iler Grand with carriages waiting to convey th visitors to th depot LOCATE SOME STOLEN WIRE Fisherman Find Batch Near Gibson " nnd Cohea May B Released from Cnstody, Two colls of copper wire were discovered Friday night by a fisherman named James West near Gibson and Just below ths round house at that place. The Wire Is supposed to be that which was stolen from the power house of the electrio light company last Sunday night, when the night watchman was held up by Charles Cartwrlght and a feUow who gave his bams -to the polio as "Bill Bailey." The watchman says he was held up with a shotgun by Bailey, and he believes that Cartwrlght atols th wire at that time. Cartwrlght and Bailey are both In Jail, and Morris Cohen, a Junk dealer who was supposed to have bought some wire from the men, has been apprehended. There ap pears to be no case agalnat the Junk man, the police say, now that th lost wire has been found. Complaint will be filed sgalnat Cartwrlght snd Bailey. NIGHT SCHOOLS WELL FILLED Better Attendance Thnn Lnst Yenr Beenns of Vigilance t Trnnnt OBnr. Enrollment reports for the first week ot night school show that the members hip has doubled over that for the first week last year. At the Kellom school 141 students reported and at ths Comenlus 104. a total of 245, against a total of 123 last year. Active work by the truant officer la held accountable for the marked Increase. No additional teacher have been assigned, but It Is not unlikely that one or more assistants may be provided If the attendance Is main tSlned, SAYS CATS EATHIS PIGEONS Sonth Sides Make Complaint Agalnet Pellne, hat Oete Immedi ate Redress. Fred Schoening of k17 South Fifteenth street wants the police to protect him from cata. He la a pigeon fancier and claims his neighbors' cats are living high on pigeon meat which comes from hla rookery. He allegee that all that Is left of a pigeon after one of these ravenous felines gets his clawa on It la a small bunch of feathers. There being no city law against th free and un limited action of a hungry cat, Acting Chief Mostyn. to whom 8choenlng com plained, could do no better than to promise to look Into the matter. BAXTER N0TWITH THE KATY Denlca Report nnd Says He and Wlf Will G Kast, Then West, on Visits. The report which haa been In circulation to the effect that Robert W. Baxter, who recently resigned the superlntendency of the Nebraska division of the Union Pa cine, ur to become connected with the "Katy" Is unfounded, says Mr. Baxter, who has Just returned from a visit to St Lou la and declare his trip ther bad a significance whatever In the way of a po- Itlon. Mr. Baxter said: "Th story Is untrue and comes ss a sur prise to me. Myself and wife will go to New Tork poesibly by Monday, and from there we expect to return and without mak ing any stop In Omaha go on to the coast, where an extended stay likely will be made." CONSERVATIVEMEN PREVAIL Dominate Things In Organlsntlnn f Hew Association, Says Knclld Martin, Wh Attended. President Euclid Martin of the Omaha Business Men's association is back from Chicago, where a new business men's league was formed. - "No," he said, "the organisation of th National Industrial Association of America will not affect, at least for the present, our Omaha organisation. We selected a name, elected officers, provided for a means of revenue and adopted resolutions setting forth ths Important principles of the asso ciation. No regulations cf second rate Im portance were considered and we did not a thing I had expected would be done at tempt to -bring the various associations to any standard. "Th fight over th name Involves a principle. A portion of the organisation wanted to fight ths union and another portion wished to organise for de fense and with A view to harmonising and taking In members of other organisations, trade associations, such as the master plumbers, etc, A large majority was strongly Inclined to conciliation, andI was surprised, for I bad looked for more radical man. There will be another meeting In February, when the constitution and by laws win b revised and smoothed down, but this meeting cannot change the resolu tion adopted. The executive committee Is to b selected from men recommended by th stat delegations, and I had the honor of being recommended by our party. "Ths national association waa formed with the Idea of legislation which our as sociation hers has not considered. The trade unions have been working for the enactment of laws which they considered would be for their advantage, and have so far been unopposed, but now the associ ation will enter this field. Eventually we will, I think, organise compactly, with national, state and city groups and with uniform local organizations.

The IrOt assessment of real and personal property by Tax Commissioner Fleming and his twenty-seven deputies has been practically finished, with the exception of th Jobbing Interests and that class sup posed to hold the highest amount of per sonal property per capita In the city.

THINKS VICTIM LIVES HERE Resident of Jacksonville, Illinois, Hna Inaan Man II Believes Cam from Omaha. John O. Reynolds of Jacksonville, 111., be lieve he has an Insane man from Omaha. He writes the chief of police that a man about 40 years old, 5 feet 8 Inches tall and weighing nearly 140 pounds. Is being held by him In the House of Detention for the Insane at that place. The Insane man has glossy black hair, he writes, but falls to explain why he believes he came from Omaha. ; Admits Stealing Grip.

Nearly everybody knows that charcoal is th safest and most efficient disinfectant and purifier In nature, but few realise its valus when taken Into the human system for the aams oleanaing purpose. Charcoal la a remedy that th more yon take of It the better; It to net a drug at all, but simply absorbs the gases and lm purities always present In the stomach and Intontlne and carries them out of th avatem. Charooal sweetens th breath after smok ing, drinking or after eating onions and other odorous vegetable. Charcoal ffectually clear and improve th complexion. It whitens th teeth and further acta as a natural and eminently safe cart hart ic. . It absorbs the Injurious gaae which col lect la th atoraeoh and bowels; it disin fect th mouth and threat from th poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoal in one form or another, but probably the beet charcoal and the most for the money I in Stuart's Absorbent Lesonges; they are composed of the finest powdered Willow charooal and other harmless antiseptic In tablet form. or, rather.

WILL NOT ACCEPT THE TAX SALE ACTS Elsasser Believe Cnslt f-nmmlaa sinner Will Order Sale for ' Next Yenr Inder th Scavenger Law. Much Interest I manifested relative to the tax sale which Is to be held Wednesday under the supervision cf County Treasurer Elsasser. The sale this year will be conduoted under the new revenue law, which Is Identical with the sale held in previous year with me exception ot tne interest, which used to be 20 per cent, but under the new revenue law Is only is per cent. Mr. Elsasser was restrained from selling under the Mickey act, which Is house roll No. 488, by an action recently brought In tbe district court by the city attorney and others. Mr. Elsaaser announces that he never Intended selling any property under this act, as hs had conferred with the county attorney, and It waa decided not to sell under that set unless th county treas urer was mandamused to do so. This wis also th suggestion offered by the deputy attorney general of the state, with whom Mr. Elsasser conferred. The opinion Is held by Mr. Elsasser that the county commissioners, upon whom It devolves, will order th 1904 sal to b under th "scavenger" act, which ths commission ers would have adopted had It been possible to get the books ready to file suit. And It Is th full intention of the commissioners to adopt that plan for the next year's sale. The Mickey law Is separate and distinct from the general revenue law or the "scav enger" act What Scavenger Act Does. Ths "scavenger" sot provides that "all city and county taxes are to be compiled Into one place by the county treasurer, which will combine state, county and mu nicipal taxes. Interest and advertising In cluded, on or be lore the 1st Hay of July. The county treasurer shall also file with th district clerk--of the county In which the land are located a petition aa pro vided for by this law, and these shall, be docketed with the district clerk ss a suit In equity and Judgment will be then ren dered by th court upon these numerous cases ss a unit After the Judgment pro vision is made for a regular sale the first Wednesday In November, at which the county treasurer is authorised to sell to the highest cash bidder such certificates of tax sale Issued to the state, county or any municipality under this set." Relative to th Injunction which was brought by th city attorney and others to restrain County Treasurer Elsasser from selling under the Mickey act, It Is said to be quite certain that County Attorney English will allow the Injunction to be made a permanent order, thereby relieving Mr. Elsasset from a suit tn mandamus. The application for an injunction will be argued before Judge Day. LOCAL BREVITIES H. S. McDonald. John Harnln. James Cuthill and C. W. Bishop have departed for Stllwell for a duck shoot.

WORCESTER, Mass., Oct. SL-Repub- llcans held a mass meeting tonight In Mechanics' hall, the principal speaker from out of the stat being Secretary ot th Treasury Leslie M. Shaw, while other speakers Included Senator Oeorge F. Hoar, who was chairman of the meeting; Her bert Parker, attorney general of Massa chusetts; ex-Congressman Joseph ' It. Walker of Worcester, and ex-Representative Charles T. Tatman, who spoke to ths young men of th republican party. Senator Hoar declared that "the demo crats campaign in Massachusetts is not a struggle alone or chiefly for the state gov ernment of Massachusetts, but Is a strug gle for position In the great national battle of 1904. "Old the democratic party," the senator asked, "In Its whole career ever redress a grievance? It has created a good many. It has defended a good many, It defendod slavery. It created the civil war. "Th republican party paid th debt when the democrats would repudiate It, It kept the faith when the democracy would have broken It. It retains sound money when democracy was for fiat money. It made gold and silver the standard of value when democracy was for rags. It kept the gold standard the standard of the world when democracy was for free sliver. It main tained the protective system and achieved the ' manufacturing Independence of the country when the democracy was for free trade." ... Speaking of the trusts, Senator Hoar said: The American republic shall not be turned Into a plutocracy. The millionaire and the day laborer must stand as equals before the law. The attorney general, under the direction of the president, has already Accomplished much to curb these Irresponsible grants. This is the attitude, as I understand It, of the administration of President Roosevelt. Secretary Shaw said In part: A IIKVV WII lirU IA UVIISTO 111 111V fru.l.av. campaign.

SIR HENRY DURAND PLEASED Ambassador mt Madrid Glad t Transfer to Post at Wash ington. Get MADRID, Oct. L Sir Henry Mortimer Durand, the British ambassador to Spain, who was recently appointed British am bassador to the United States, was inter' viewed today by a correspondent of th Associated Press st ths British embassy here. Concerning his appointment to Wash ington, Sir Henry said: t ...in, it somewhat a surnrls. though certainly a pleaaant one. I had no intimation of it until I received an Inquiry from the foreign offlce. asking If I would go. to which f replied In the affirmative 7 . w, ii.ii.ri,tt tn n to America, which I have long admired and have been .anxious to visit. The leading American statesmen ar only known to me by reputation. Bo I hav yet to aoqualnt myself with Ameri can men and American affairs. When asked what line of policy he would follow, ths ambassador answered: That la difficult to snswer, owing to my unacqualntance with the country, but nat urally I ahall follow the lines laid down by the foreign offlce and British Interests. Regarding the difficulties of my new poal tlon. unless I am mistaken they will not be very great, perhaps less than at Madrid, owing to the number of pending Interna tional ouestlons here. The relations be tween the Vnlted State and Oreat Brit ain are most cordial, there being no Seri ous litigation pending between the two Anglo-Saxon nations and I am personslly convinced that Oreat Britain will use every endeavor to prevent causes of friction, ss made evident by the eubmtelon of Alaska oueetiona to arbitration. The polit ical horlson being therefore cloudless, I imagine my P"rt at Wexhlngton will b social rather than diplomatic. I confess that I leve here with rerret. The society is charming and I have made many sincere friendships. I came to Madrid somewhat prejudiced by what 1 had heard of Spanish-wide snd Caatlltlsn haughti ness, hut I have neen with mv own eyes thst this wss pure fiction. There are no more frank or more courteous people in the world than the Spaniards. My official relations have been easy and agreeable.

Distressing accounts have been received from th entire penin sula of th effect of extremely tempestuous weather. In the north snd south great quantities of rain have fallen, causing floods and accompanied by heavy light ning and high winds. Severe storms at Sea are reported, but no lives are known to have been lost The thunderbolts have caused several extensive fires. One thun derbolt fell on the royal hunting lodge nt Ban Rossore, where King Victor Emman uel and Queen Helena now are. A fir re sulted which sssumed such alarming pro portions that ths fir brigade from Pisa, the nearest to San Rossore, was called out. The sovereigns took a great Interest In the work of extinguishing the fire. Several snap shots of ths fir scenes Were tsken by th queen. DENVER, Oct. 80. -Th storm which be-' gun with rain about o'clock last enlng, changed In the night to snow i t was general over almost th entire ttate. de laying railroad traffic considerably. In the mountains snow fell heavily. The weather is not very cold, but a cutting wind was ths most disagreeable feature of th storm. SITUATION MORE WARLIKE London Hears Report that Jnpanese Cabinet Haa No Hop for Peace. LONDON, Oct. M. Th Morning Post says today that it understands that Japan Is by no means prepared to acquiesce In the suggestion that it glvs Russia a free hand In Manchuria in exchange for a Japa nese free hand in Corea. Japan contends, say the Morning Post, that the two ques tions are entirely separate, that Corean In dependence already has been secured by convention and that as Manchuria was re stored to China by Japan at ths Instigation of European powers, it naturally cannot cohaent to Its occupation by Russia. The correspondent of the Daily Mall at Kobe quotes tn Hoschl Shlman of Toklo to ths effect ,that the diplomatic corps ot ths Japanese capital have no hope of a peaceful settlement of the pending difficul ties. Even Baron Shlbusawa, at a meeting of the Bankers' union, advocated war, si though th intereat of the bankers Is logic ally in ths direction of peace. CLOCK KINDLES THE FIRE Aatomntl Devle Which 1 Classed a m Blessing to th Barly Riser. An automatic fir klndler, the operation of which Is regulated by an ordinary alarm clock, will doubtleas appeal to every person whose duties Include getting up early to start th fir In the kitchen stove. With this new contrivance Installed in a house It Is necessary, upon retiring, simply to assemble th fuel In the stove or any fireplace, connect an attachment to th clock and set the latter at any required hour. When the alarm sounds a fulminate la ignited, which, communicating with an Inflammable substance In the stove, range, furnace or grata, Immediately start th fir. By th time the householder or serv ant Is up the fir Is burning briskly and ths water boiling. It ia claimed that theae new devices may b so set that they will start fires whenever wanted and thus have a home thoroughly heated before the occupants stir from their beds. From the back of the clock used m connection with th automatic fir Vlndler extend a shaft, on which Is mounted a ro tary friction disk or rulley, th periphery of which Is milled or otherwise designed to create friction when rotated in contact with a relatively stationary member. By th operation of a pivotal arm, a lug snd spring snd other attachments In connection with the rotary disk this entire external mechanism Is set In motion when the alarm Is released. Instantly a fuse, with an easily lgnl table fulminate at Ita end and held In place in a slot opening against the Jrictlon wheel. Is set a P. re. The flame, properly confined within the metallic slot, travels instantly over the Inflammable strand, which la sat urated with a free-burning Ingredient. The clock may be set on a nearby shelf or on the back of the stove or a furnace pro jection. As even a small and cheap alarm c'otk may be utilized and as the tube-Incased fire strand may b safely controlled, that part of the problem I very simple. Moreover, any kind of kindling substance ordinarily used may be utilised. Th fus may be employed merely to Ignlt paper under the regulation kindling wood lire, w ith coal or cord wood on top. In such cases the action is similar to that of a mutch or, rather, of several matchea lighted simultaneously and burning longer than rsilurJr matches. flaturilay Evening Post.
