He woo a magnificent typo of tho real bluo blooded Virginian, and when a member of tho littlo party with which ho wan chatting in n cor ner asked him, 4,What of tho Virginia girl?" a delicious flush of prideful color warmed his faco, and ho mado a reply striking and beautiful. "Tho Virginia girl is now as hor mother and grandmother wero be fore hor. Sho is fitted by nature and trained by education to bo tho wife of a strong and bravo man and a mothor of Bturdy boys and virtuous' girls. Sho is not mado up of watery elements, though her voice is over soft, gontlo and low. Sho says 'father' and 'mothor' in dutiful tones, and yesternight when, liko tho Lady Christabol, "Her genUe limbs did she undress. And lay down in her loveliness, sho said 'Our Father who art in heaven' reverently, confidingly and. trustfully. A Christian sho is, with no more doubt of her faith than that tho sun shines. Chasto sho is, with out knowledge or suspicion of evil. Simple sho is, and ignorant and heed less of tho great world, whero wealth and position aro the guinea stamp that makes effulgent hearts as false and as black as hell, and when she marries, as marry sho does, she will do her husband good, and not evil, all the dayB of her life. "Slender sho is, with tho correct line of beauty, litho and graceful. Her hand is "not exactly small, for it has wiekled the rolling pin, Neither is her foot small, but it is an honest foot a foot light enough and a step trim enough to dash tho dew from heather flowers; a foot eloquent, not liko Cressida'8,but eloquent of surety ; a foot to twirl in any schottischo or cotillon, to cut tho pigeon wing or tread tho mazes of the reel or oxe cutetho shuffle of tho Irish jig. "Nor has her education been neg lected. She was a Staunton and Vassar a year or bo, and her father's library contains some Btorling books, as does nearly every homo in old Virginia. Thero is a piano, too, and tho Virginia girl is perhaps at her best when, with voico liko a night ingale's and- eyes liko a Hebe's, 6he sings with the accompaniment the simple ballads hor grandmother sang," Chicago Tribune. Rzqnlstto Workmanship. Otto Young Co. of Chicago have in their store u watchmaker's bench which with the lathe and other at tachments is valued at $900. The bench alono is worth $470.

A thirty six day battle with flames was ended tonight by the arrival of the British ship Cedar Bank from Newcastle, New South Wales.

Prompt efforts to extinguish the flames proved unavailing and It was decided to Jetti son a part of the cargo. Two hundred and sixty tons were thrown overboard and then, owing to the extreme heat in the hold and the great difficulty In handling the burning coal, It was ne cessary to desist. Large quantities of water wero thrown into tho hold, the pumps part pf tho time going day and night. On July 10th two explosions occurred and the flames burst out and ran all over the hold. The hatches were kept battened down as much as possible. The crew were obliged on account of the heat to abandon their quarters in the forcastle and go aft. The boats were provisioned and towed astern for an emergenoy. Ono day another boat hove In sight but passed without seeing the Cedar Bank's signals of distress. The fire continued to make headway and ibe decks, sides, ventilators and all parts of the vessel became very much heated, and smoke poured from the hatches and other crevices.

S. Gov't Report. ,as? ABSOLUTELY PURE .4 HOME RULE RIOT In the British House of Parlia ment. UBBRALS AND CONSERVATIVES FIGHT Then Make Up and Pass tho Bill to Final Reading. London, July 28. There wns a reg ularrow in tho house of commons last night, the scene enacted there being unprecedented In parliamentary his tory. Ten o'clock was the hour set for closure of debate in tho committee on the home rule bill. Joseph Chamber lain aroso to deliver the final broadsldo of the opposition. He was still smart ing under tho lashing administered by Gladstone Tuesday evening and spoke with much, bitterness, giving his opin ion of closure as applied by the govern ment. He was frequently Interrupted by Jeers from the Irish and cheers from his own side. After one period of In terruption, he preceeded: "The prime minister oalta Blaok and his adherents and they say It Is good. He calls White and they say It is better. It Is always the voice of God. Never since tho timo of Herod, has there been such ." Chamberlain got no further, for with his half finished reference to Herod there came from tho natloullsts such a roar of Indignation as had notjjecn heard in the commons bIiico the time ofParuell. T. P. O'Connor sprang to bis feet and, leaning toward Chamber lain, shouted, "Judus." The rest of the Irishmen tootc up the cry and shuuted "Judas" In chorus. Chairman Mellor tried to put the closure hut his voice rauld notbe he heard. Then everybody started for the front bench. Unionists shouted "sag." Others struggled lu the aisles or between the benches with radical, liberal or Irish antagonists, Somebody smashed Tim Healy's high bat down over his eyee and as soon as Tim got It off ho jumped Into the alslo In fighting posture J dot as Hanbury was knocked to get past. Hanbury was knocked over tho bench by tbeforco of tho collision. A free fight then broke out at tho gugway, led by William Redmond. Blows were struck right and left. Tim whole space bolween the front benches was filled with a struggling, maw of members, striking, clawing nnd upsetting each other. Finally Gladstone begged Major Ed ward I. Banks, a sturdy liberal, to help stop tho afialr, Mejor Banks dug his way through the belligerents, aud, by dint of appeals in the name of the premier, succeeded iu stemming the conflict. Gladstone, sitting upright, had sur veyed the whole sceno with an Inflamed face and an expression of sorrow, indig nation and astonishment which will never be effaced from the mlndof those who viewed him. Cbalrmau Mellor sent for Speaker Peel and when that gentlemau arrlyed several conser vatives pointed to Giudslouo and ex claimed: "There sits Ibe author of it all." Finally the speaker appealed to tho party leaders to tell blm what bad occurred. Gladstone eald bo regretted that neither bis eyes nor hUears en abled blm to give a very clear account of the affair, He then gravely desorlbed the events as related to him by his lieu tenants and expressed the opinion that a division should be taken beforo the "Judas" Incident should be considered, Balfour told his side of the story as re lated to him by his men, he having been absent when the row occurred. Speaker Peel decided that tho ex pression alleged to have been used was the original cause of tho disorder, He felt certain that It was used iu the heat and Irritation of the moment and If the geatlemau were to say be regretted it, It would be lib (the speaker's) duty to take no further notice of the attnlr. O'Connor then apologised to the speak er. Thu wai received with cheers. The uproar began again, however, and another riot was threatened, but Baking Powder tho speaker succeeded in subduing It. Then Mellor resumed tho chair. The various remaining clauses of the home rule bill were carried. Syhen the com mittee arose and Chairman Mellor re ported to Speaker Peel the home rule bill as amended In tho committee there was a graud outburst of cheering and bats wero waved for Gladstouo. The report stago was fixed for August 7. More Chinese Smuggling. Nkw Yoiik, July 28. Thenrwas an other clash in tho custom-houso between local customs ofllolals and Special Treasury Agent Scbarf over the alleged smuggling of Chinese into this port. Tho letter of July 16th addressed by Mr. Scharf to his immediate superior, Col. L. M. Montgomery, and forward ed by him to tho secretary of the treas ury, which, with the other Information caused the treasury department to can cel the power of tho collector to certify to Chinese return certificates with the signature of his deputy and tho seal of the collector was the point under dis cussion. Mr. Scharf, in his report, charged that tho whole proceeding of examining Chinese for admission at this port was a farce, and that bribery was resorted to in order to effect an en trance for bucIi as had no legal right to land. He belloved many Chinese bad been smuggled Into the couutry since tho work had beon reduced to a system by syndicates of Chinese, who made a profit of $200 on each or their country men safely lauded bore. Tho world says that, In pursuing the Investigation of the ground of discus sion between Chinese Inspector of the treasury J, Thomas Scharf and the customs officers of this port, it was dis covered that an organized conspiracy exists to Btnuggle Chinamen Into this couutry whoso entry Is forbidden, that the Geary law is practically inoperative, that scores of Chinese laborers, cigar makers, laundrymen and gamblers have been smuggled Into the port of New York alone under the guise of actors und merchants. Indian Fight. Omaha, July 28. For some time the Indian soldiers stationed at Fort Oma ha havo been lu the habit of raiding tno orchards near the-fort. Yesterday sixteen redskins, led by Hlgb Eagle, a obiof of considerable famo lu the Sioux nation, took possession of eoveral trees In J. V. Vlokory's orchard. Ho got a doublo-barrclled shotgun and fired among the Indians. Several wero struok by tho shot, and Chief High Eagle fell, mortally wounded. The In dians drew their revolvers and the farmer retreated to the house. The Indlanssurrounded tho house, prepared to attack It In front and rear. Just then A. N. Hanson, a well known scout, dashed up from the frontf and, with a revolver in each haud, called upon the excited redsdins to quit tb premises. Thoy knew Hanson to be a terrible fighter and thoy scattered for a few minutes. Before they resumed tbelr attack, however, further assist ance came from tho fort, and the farm er was taved from tho vengeance of Iba Indlaus. He was placed under arrest. Kentucky Failure.
