On of tU Delusion of the "Good Old
Times" Wiit an F.nglUh Newspaper
Bays renaltlf Inflicted by Chnrcli and
State Tli e Puritans.
At Christmas time, according to Shake
speare or Marcellua, no witch has power to
charm, bo liallowed and ao gracious is the
time. There is perhaps no chapter of history
more painful or more astounding to our
modern notions than that devoted to witch
craft The delusion was not like one of those
udden outbreaks of fanaticism which spring
up. nobody knows how, and die away as sud
denly; It wos regarded as a lasting evil to bo
jmulnhed with the severest penalties of the
church and of the Btate. And for tho most
part the people who perished under thia reign
of terror were women. They were gener
ally old and ugly, and had familiar spirits to
do their errands; but sometimes young and
fair women suffered on the rack and at the
stake under the terrible imputation of witch
craft. To be accused of this crimo was In most
cases to be condemned for it; and, indeed,
there seemed little chance of an escape, for
the testa to which accused persons were put
In order to try their innocence generally
proved mortal. To throw an old woman
into the water, and, if she sinks, to save her
character at the expense of her life, is hardly
kind to the old woman. Almost any cause
sufTlced as a reason for burning old women.
Two, for example, were burned at Constance
as the supposed authors of a great storm, and
another for destroying a ship at sea by means
of spoils. They wero never burnt, wo be
lieve, without confession; but then it was
tho custom to torture them till they did con
fess. One notable form of witchcraft, which has
been admirably turned to poetic account by
llossetti, was to form a waxen imago of some
person obnoxious to the witch, and as this
image was gradually melted by the firo, so it
was supposed would the victim's life fade
away. Of this form of sorcery Eleanor
Cobham, wife of Duke Humphrey, was ao
cusod; and Uollingshed relates that she was
condemned to do open penance in the city of
London, and afterward to suffer perpetual
imprisonment iu the Itle of Man. A kind of
sorcery similar to that for which Eleanor
Cobham suffered led to the execution, in
1C1S, of two women in Lincoln, who were
said to have bewitched Lord Rosse to death
by burying his glove; and "as that glove did
rot and waste, so did the liver of the said
lord rot and waste."
In the Fifteenth century Tope Innocent
VIII issued a bull acainst witchcraft, em
powering inquisitors to seek for witches and
to burn them, and the agreeable vocation
must have been pursued with a zest, for one
inquisitor burned forty-one witches in one
Year, and another burned 100. It is stated
that tens of thousands of victims have suf
fered for this imaginary crime. In the dio
cese of Como 1,000 were burned in a year at
the beginning of the Sixteenth century, and
at the same time 600 perished in Geneva In
three months. The belief in witchcraft and
the intolerable cruelties caused by this belief
were not confined to the papal church. In
the Seventeenth century the Puritans in
New England hanged a number of persons as
well as two dogs for this imaginary crime;
and for two years Hopkins, the "witch
finder." drove a flourishing trade in Essex.
In 200 years 30,000 witches are said to have
been destroyed in England; and as recently
as 1716, when the town was enjoying the wit
and satire of the "Queen Anne men,
woman and her child 9 years of age were
hanged at Huntingdon. Addison, with a
mind that wavered between superstition and
trood sense, said he could not forbear believ
ing "in such a commerce with evil spirits as
that which we express by the name of witch
craft," while, at tho same time, he could
"eive no credit to any particular modern in
stance of it." This conclusion is quoted by
Ulackstone In the fourth volume of his
Scotland, which is regarded as an enlight
ened part of the empire, held with the ut
most tenacitv its faith in witchcraft The
Scotch, a vigorous people, put their hands
to the work heartily. It was easy to find
victims, since, as we have said already, they
, were tortured until ther confessed. Take
one instance out of thousands. Isabel Craw
ford, after the minister had made earnest
prayers to God for opening her closed heart,
was tortured with iron bars laid upon her
bare shins, her feet being in the stocks. For
a time she boro the torture admirably, though
legs, but in moving the bars to another part
of her shins she broke out into horrible cries,
and confessed to intercourse with the deviL
She was condemned, ol course, and at the
place of execution openly denied her former
confession. It is calculated tnac x.vw per
sons were burned in Scotland in the last
f ortv years of the Sixteenth century.
A centurv later a witch epidemic broke
out in the village of Mohra, in Sweden. A
number of children were said to be be
witched and familiar with the devil, who
was described as wearing a gray coat, red
and blue stockings, a rod beard and a high
crowned hat. Tho witches kept this exacting
nersonace supplied with children, and if
thev did not procure him a good many "they
bad no peace or quiet for him." The poor
wretches were doomed to have no more
peace or quiet in this world. Seventy were
condemned to death, twenty-threo wero
liiimpd in a sinela fire at Mohra.
It is noteworthy that a belief in this fright

cent persons than the so called ttoir umee.

Figure That Pulls Out Its Watch and
Tells One the Time.
Professor Charles Itichel, the inventor of
tho flying machine which created so much
interest a few years ago, is just completing a
mechanical wonder which is an astonishing
pieco of mechanism. It promises to create a
great furor throughout the country. He has
been over a year experimenting with it, and
has at last achieved results which at the out-
start 6eemed impossible. He was given carte
blanche from a watch manufacturing concern
to get up tho novelty, timo and expense be
ing a secondary consideration. l'roiessor
Kichel has kept the matter secret, and has
permitted no one to enter his study except
ing one or two intimate friends. A reporter
was given a private view last evening.
The entrance to the studio is by way of a
dark staircase on John street. Double doors,
a screen and a heavv curtain shut out the
daylight. Electric lights are used to work
by. There are all sorts of grotesque beads,
arms and bits of plaster anatomy hanging
around the room, and upon the work bench
are brass molds and a variety of Gno tools
for the purpose of working in steel and brass.
The now wonder is a life sized j-outh of per-
Uups sixteen years of age. He is a fine look
ing lad, in perfect imitation of the average
boy of the present day. Tho figure stands
upon the floor, and Is attired in Knickerbock
ers and laced shoes, vest, coat, etc. to ail ap
pearances a living boy. Professor Itichel did
not approach tho figure, but spoke to it, say
ing, " Good evening, Bobby; what timo is
it I" The figure turned its head and bowed
slightly, and with its left hand pulled back
tho coat. The right hand, which had been
hanging at the side, was lifted up to the vest
pocket and drew out a watch. The watch was
then carried up to the ear, at the same time
the head turned so as to bring the ear down
in a listening attitude, while the eyes closed.
When the silent youth w-as assured that the
watch was ticking the hand dropped slightly
forward; the head turned so as to bring the
face to look full at tho watch, the eyes opened
and a pleased smile spread over the features.
Tho head was then thrown back, the hand
which held tho watch between the thumb
and iDdex fineer returned the watch to the
vest pocket and was then gracefully swung
back into its resting position by the side.
The mouth opened, and with a pleasant
laugh the figure said: "It's just half past 8,
So naturally was all thl3 pertormcd that
for an instant it seemed as if the figure was
an actualizing being. There was no jerky
movement, nor the slightest jar or noise. 1 he
eyes opened and closed and tho head moved
about to all appearances like a living one.
Professor Ricbel laughed and said, "What do
you think of itf and then proceeded to ex
plain how it was oporated. Insido the figure
is an electric motor. 1 his had been set in op
eration by touching a concealed button in the
floor several feet away where the professor
had been standing. Afterwards he opened
the chest of the figure and exposed where
the cams, springs, weight balances, spirals
and levers which had caused tho arms and
head to move. The cleverest parts are those
which cause the wrist, thumb and fingers to
move. The articulator mecnanism is very
similar to that employed in a phonograph.

A knowledge of human nature is also im

Neither would he Invite the bigot in religion
to meet a rival one of another school, nor an
apostle of Voltaire expecting pleasure from
the discussion sure to arise. Nor would he
bid political antipodes to attend a "con

out expecting warm words and un
pleasant clashing of opinions. Neither
would such Invite the brightest lights of the
dramatic world to meet those whose religious
scruples prompt them to look upon the drama
as a satanic invention for the destruction of

Fined for Being Late Most Stand All

lie moved.
"Well, we have to be here at 8 o'clock
every morning, whether we livo on the east
side, the west side, in Brooklyn or Harlem,
and 8 o'clock Isn't an unreasonable hour at
all, nor do wo ever complain; but if we are
ten minutes late, no matter why, we are
fined. Of courso, to the cash girls this fine
means going without the cup of hot coffee or
the little bit of fruit sbo would have bought
to piece out her little lunch; but, so far as I
am concerned, I don't care anything about
the fine; it is tho restriction that 1 object to
and tho being reprimanded. 1 don t Intend
to be late. I am just as much interested iu
being here in timo and selling a lot of goods
as the proprietor is himself. I like my busi
ness, and am proud of my sales and auxious
to begin my work for the day, and the idea
that because I hnppen to miss a car, or have
one of tho thousand little delaying accidents
that every woman and man, too, for that
matter is liable to, that some man who
knows nothing about me has a right to repri
mand mo and fine me just makes mo cross
and hurts my prido.
"Then the hardest thing of all a shop girl
has to endure ifl the constant standing from
H in tho morning until C at night, with only
one half hour rest at noon. A few years ago
some one stirred up this subject and seats
wero placed belaud the counter, but they
havo been all taken away. Tho salesladies
in suit departments can sit down, but not
in the room where tho customers am Of
courso, ir they go away in tno time biuo
room to rest they miss their customers, an d
the consequence is that they stand all day
outside. We do not mind it on busy days,
tho excitement keeps us up, but on dull days
we almost faint away sometimes standing
still with nothing to make us forget how
tired we are.
Wo have half an hour for lunch, which is
timo enough for a person to eat a cold lunch,
but when a girl stands from 8 o'clock until 2,
after a 7 o'clock breakfast, she wants some
thing besides a sandwich and a cup of tea for
her lunch. I used to go out and buy my
lunch and have a regular hot dinner, as 1
would at homo. I needed it, and worked all
the better for it, but of course I couldn't get
it in half an hour. I was usually gone forty
minutes. After a whilo I was denied that
privilege, and I have to eat my lunch in the
lunch room. 1 don t like a cold lunch, and
somehow the thought of the being compelled
to do anything like that fills my heart with a
kind of bitterness that takes away all my ap
petite. It isn't the cold lunch or the hot
lunch room where they make coffee in one
end and eat in the other, though ; that isn't
exactly what I am used to at homo, but it is
the restraint that I rebel against.
'At 0 o'clock sharp we are all excused In a
batch, and away we pour out of the door like
a mob of factory hands, and the people all
say, 'See the 6hop girls.' Now, if some could,
when they had no customers, go at fifteen
minutes to C or ten minutes to 6, don't you
see we wouldn't all flock out together and at
tract attention, for part of us would go at
one time and part at another, but now it is
push and crowd and jam to get out, so that
if you would go decently and in a ladylike
way you have to wait until all the crowd is

evenings to enjoy myself, but I am too tired
and feel so kind of bitter and sorry and re
sentful in my heart that I don't want to go

than a man wants to give up his business.
Sly employer is very kind, my salary Is very
generous, and all that; it is only a few little
thincrs about the system of managing the

pendent business women, earning as much.
and in many cases more than men in the
same places, and we do not liko to be gov
erned like the inmates of an orphan home or
house of correction.
"And what kind of men do we marry?
Well, they have to be pretty nice, or we don't
bother with them. The better class of sales
ladies rarely marry employes in the store.
Don't you see we are independent, and unless
we are going to better ourselves very much,
or unless we get hopelessly in love, we do not
care to marry at alL I know many girls who
have married very well, and have lovely
homes. Do we ever marry the customers
whom we meet in the store? Well," with a
toss of the blonde head and a pretty flush in
the timid face, "I know some who might
have married some of their customers, but
"As far as promotion is concerned, that
rests entirely with ourselves, is based on our
ability, and I think is very fair and just.
Some girls never get promoted because they
lack ability and push, and others get to the
top in a short time. 1 he promotions are from
cash to parcel clerk,Jfrom that to stock clerk,
one who assists in keeping the goods in order,
then to bill clerk, saleslady, cashiers and floor
walkers, and wcge3 increase from two dollars
up to thirty or more."
"How much pay do I get?" said a little,
fair faced maiden behind the counter. "Five
dollars a week, unless something happens."
"And what does happen to prevent it?"
"Well, if I'm late a few minutes I am
fined; if I am half an hour late I loso one-
quarter of a day's wages; if I make the least
little mistake in my bills that is taken out of
my pay, and if I break anything that has to
bo paid for. If I am sick half a day I lose
that, and so you see I don't always get the $5.
The floor walker doesn't always look when
she hears a crash, because if she doesn't know
what breaks or who breaks it, why then she
can't report it. But she always does look if
the superintendent is anywhere on the floor.
Sometimes one dish costs a whole week's
"No, our superintendent isn't a woman,
and I'm glad of it. A woman does nothing
but scold and stew and fuss all the timo over
little things. Yes, It's pretty hard to keep
up all the fines, but 1 suppose it makes us
more careful, so that we really do not have
so very many to pay. No, we have no seats
now; they have all been taken away. Some
times two or three of us crowd on the edge of
a drawer that pulls out near the floor, but we
fly up lively if we see the floor walker com
ing this way."
"The girls abused the privilege," explained
the floor walker, a delicate looking girL
"They were not quick to rise up when cus
tomers came in, and grew neglectful and
indolent. Of course, it is tiresome to stand
so long, and girls need to be strong to endure
it, but they like the work aside from that,
and In time they seem to grow accustomed
to it, so that they do net mind it as they do
at first.
"The hardest things we have to get along
with are the cranks that come In here to be
waited on. Of course, it is our busi
ness to show the goods, but just as much
their business to be ladylike. I tell you some
of the girls behind the counter are more
ladylike than the rich people they wait on."

ITancral Custom In Denmark.
In Denmark it is becoming customary for
friends to send to the relatives of a person
who has died what is called a "Good Works
Card," in place of the usual floral tributes.
These cards are of white pasteboard, printed
in silver, and are issued, by various charitable
organizations. On each card is the name of
the society which issues it; in the center ia
an ivy wreath on which the name of the de
ceased may be written, and at the foot is a
space for the name of the sender. The cards
are sold In bookstores for a moderate sum.
The idea appears to be a sensible one, as by
sending these cards people can show their
sympathy for those in sorrow and at the
same time do something for their favorite
charity. As might be expected, the florist
do not like these cards. New York Tribune.
There is not one thing that puts a man
or woman at such disadvantage before

you will remember a few years ago the
word Malaria was comparatively un
known, today it i3 as common as any
word in the English language, yet this
word covers only the mtaning of another
word used by our forefathers in times
past. So it is used with nervous diseases,
as they and Malaria are intended to cover
what our grandfathers called Biliousness,
and all are caused by troubles that arise
from a diseased condition of the Liver
which in performing its functions finding
it cannot dispose of the bile through the
ordinary channel is compelled to pass it
off through the system causing nervous
troubles, JJalrja, Bilious Fever, etc.
You who are suffering can well appreci
ate a cure. We recommend Green's Au
gust Flower. Its cures are marvelous.
