Chicago, April 8. Two tboutnud del-egat-,
reijrunentiii the ininfceis, fire
men aud switcluien of nil roli leading;
to Chicaoo, held a riietting this afternoon.
General Manager JciTrejrf, if tho Illinois

of wLich it was resolved that the men on
each road be allewed to ue their own
judgment in all questions growing out of
tho fctrike. Thia it considered to le n
virtual endorsement of the Michigan
Central's men todaj.
TIic Frt Wavne strikeia today asked
the gfBrul eupcriistendent whether if
thj rut urn wl to work in the morning
they vrLulC bo tkeu back. He replied
in the affirmative, provided thej would
handle all btikiuess without discrimina
tion. This is thought to indicate that
the Fort Wayne strike will soon be over.
The belt line employes decided tonight
to btand by the company and handle all
freight as directed. This settles the
treuble on that line.
Chicago, III., April 3. The striking
St. Paul yard men held a meeting tonight
and appointed a commiltte to wait on
General Superintendent Clark with a
proposition that they would go to work
if tho new men were directed to clear
the yards of Burlington freight. This
Clark rejected and the cemmittce re
turned to the meeting place, where it was
instructed by tho meeting to again see
Clark and offer unconditional surrender,
lie received this proposition, and the
men go te work in the morning.
Another Sudden and Mysterious
Death at Mason City
Mason City, la., April 3. It is now
thought that II. C. Avery, who died sud
denly Sunday morning, was atllicted with
the same trouble that caused tho death
of the two members of thoBrewn family.
Tiic latter death, with tho mysteries sur
rounding it, again renews talk relating
to the Brown family trouble. About 10
o'clock 5Ir. Avery, who was a strong, ro
bust ma::, was attacked with dizziness,
and in abrut ten minutes was seized by
violent purging aud voinii'mg. Ho was
given sonic cold tea to drink, and all his
pains seemed to pass tway. In a little
over three hoars hi w a corpse. What
has caused the deaths is a complete mys
tery. It is generally argued that it is
some kind of poison. Not long ago n
poison known a3 Tyrotoxican, a putriti--cation
farouut, a poinon generated in de
cayed matter, was discovered in cheesa.
Butter rontaiiiiug fjniilar ingredgients
might contain, a like poison, aad the
Brown family and Mr. Avery both ate
butter at their lat meal.- Coroner Mc
Neal exhuuied the body of II. L. Brown
and the slomach was 'taken out. The
board of supervisors, who are now in
session, have been asked to appropriate
sufficient money to make a thorough in
vestigation. The appropriation will un
doubted lv bo made and Brown's stomach
sent to Chicago lit one.

Kearney, Neb., April 3. ThecUrp
Knocrzer, a resident of South Omaha,
I was found wanderiug around on a prarie
Sunday in the vicinity of Gibbon, and
when brought iff town was found to be

He seems to be bothered about some
murder and says often, twl didn't kill
him, Jake did it." He says he was

! Gulcher was fonnd in a field near there
under circumstances indicating that he
had been murdered.

Smoklnc; k Meerschaum Pipe.
The pride of the smoker is to color bis
pipe. A new pipe should never be filled over
a quarter full and the quanity increased only
as the smoker observes the line of color ad
vance. By following this rule the pipe will
be uniformly browned. If a pipe is mottled
it Is a sure indication that it was not thor
oughly dried before being placed in the bath
of spermaceti. In coloring a cigar holder an
additional piece of wood or some earthera
material hollowed to receive the end of the
cigar should be placed in tho end of the
holder, that the moisture may not come in
contact with the meerschaum until it i3 col
ored to the rim.
The reason why these rules should be ob
served is that tho nicotine naturally settles
to the bottom of tho pipe, and if tho bowl is
load'id to tho brim the heat from the burn
ing tobacco will drive tho nicotine forcibly
to tho bottom, aud then all hope of giving
the whole pipe that beautiful light chocolate
appearanco must be abandoned. Smoke as
sists the process, and by blowing it gently
upon the outsido in a few week3 the effect
will be noticeable. Philadelphia Times.
Of Use to YVrlier.
A recent article mentioned cei"tain ways
of making paper capable of taking ink when
it has been roughened by erasure as by
powdered resin and by rubbing with a knife
handle; but pray, havo any of my readers
ever heard of pounce? I do not know
whether stationers keep it nowadays or not.
It is a fine, white resiuou3 powder the cy
clopsedia says powdered sandarach. A small
bottle of it will lost one a life time. Along
with tho powder used to bo sold ai elegantly
turned pounce lox, like a little wooden oil
can, which would sift a small quanity of the
pounce on the paper, as needed. My pounce
box has been an inseparable article of my
writing table for many years. To rub the
pounce in after it has been sifted upon the
erased spot, I use a small stick with a ball
whittled on the end, over which a bit of
chamoi3 skin is tied, as on a painter's maul
stick. Nothing could be more simple or
more convenient. John F. Genung in The
Beggars In Southern. Italy.
Children are very annoying as beggars in
the south of Italy; for half a dozen of them
will sometimes cluster around a stranger,
imploring birn to give them something. Olio
of tho St. Nicholas artists traveling in Italy
had a curious way of ridding himself of
these youngsters. He carried a toy watch
which was a little out of order, and the
hands of which, when it was wound up,
would go round with a buzz, until it
ran down, lie would fix this in one eye like
an eyeglass, and turn fiercely upon the im
lortunato youngsters. The sight of this re
volving and buzzing tyi, ccared the little
rascals, and they fled in every direction.
They thought it was the J?Evil Eye,?' of
which they pro very much afraid. The Ar

Among tho curious sights of Paris are the
dog markets. The animals offered for sale
are almost always mongrels of low degree,
any pf good blood being taken by the regu

prices for their curs, but are willing to make
a reduction. They begin by demanding from
120 to $12 for each animal, and usually end
by accepting forty cents. A policeman

In Nebraska, where glandered horses

Seaweed is coming extensively into uso
for decorative purposes. It will be used
during the summer to ornament di-esses,

has also tho advantage of never fading or
looking the worse for wear.

New Method of Weighing.
A novel scale has been invented. In
stead of weighing in pounds and ounces
it indicates the value of articles weighed.
Fer example, if a man buys butter at
thirty cents a pounds, an indicater i3

scale h.'i the lower indicator shows tho
value of any weight of butter at that
price that is put on the scales, The ma
