pionship with b:ire knuckles. The nieet
ji'g took plaee in a deserted building at

Anarchist Sunday Schools
Chicago, Nov. 23. The executive
committee of the newly organized local
anarchist society, known as the Arbeiter
Bund, has issued a circular calling a large
Iliads meeting next Sunday for the pur
pose of devising means by which to
found anarchist frch'tols for children
throughout the city. The circular was
freely distributed today. It invites all
anarchists to investigate the society's
Sunday schools, of which there arc six in
Chicago, ef.oh located in the rear or
in the bas-.-ment of saloons. One of the
nch-xil-s in thu back room of Ilichan
brother's saloon, at Lincoln avenue and
Jlilsto.l street, was found to contain this
afternoon 120 children, ranging from
live to f jurtjyn y.-ar3 of age, seated on
long benches, listening intently to what
n teacher was explaining to them about
Johnnn Most. The teacher told the
children that Spies and l'arsons had been
murdered by the capitalists, and referred
to the dead anarchists as martyrs.
BiunoKi'oitT, Conn., Nov. 2G. P. T.
Itanium, th : showman, is a thing ot the
past. He has settled up his business, and
last night announced thai he had turned
his whole circus over to Mr. Haily, who
will own and conduct it, and that he
himself had forever retired. Advancing
j ears and a desire to enjoy his old ngc in
, quiet, are the causes which led Mr. Cr-
nam to close out. Last week lie gave a
farewell dinner and is now about to oc
cupy a plain little brick cottage over
looking Long Island Sound. Mr. Bar
nuni is getting to be infirm. lie shows
his years, and he repeatedly anuunced
that the cozy little brick cottage in which
he intends to pass the evening of his life
had been built expressly for his young
wife. The deeds are in her name. Mr,
Burnum has made his will, which is un
derstood to be a "cast iron will." Beside
the usual witnesses Mr. Burnum has se
cured the signatures of two leading
physicians that he is in right mind. He
is estimated to be worth $10,000,000.
The Knights of Labor.
Ikdianaiolis, Ind., Nov. 20. The
delegates to the Knights of Labor gener
al assembly took advantage of the pleas
ant weather to see the sights, the only
business being a reception by General
Master Workman Powderly. During the
day he received the delegates in groups,
each state's representatives calling on
him in a body. He went over the ground
of the work he wished them to take up,
gave and received ad vice, and carried on
a series of informal conference's looking
to the strengthening of the order in all
parts of the country.
A number of delegates h ive already
secured mileage and started for home,
and those still here are hoping for an
early adjournment. The more hopeful
think that this may be reached by Mon
day evening, while other think it impos
siple to complete the work of the con
vention before Tuesday noon. The in
stallation of officers, the various appeal
cases, the censure of Skefllngton, and
further matters from the law committee,
will take up the r mainingtunc.
George Schilliug, of Chigago, and
Martin Hanley. of New Jersey, addressed
a socialistic meeting tonight. Barry left
for Chicago tonight, and from there goes
direct to his home at East Saginaw.

It is said that boys in Scotland are not
in the habit of using profane words.
When a gang of Scottish boys in ono of
Mr. Black's novels suspended one of their
number over a ptreain with tho ' threat
that he would bo dropped therein if he
did not "say a swear," the worst thing
he could think of was deeviL" But
that was considered so bad that he was
promptly released? --New York; Tribune.

Malmaison Going; to Piece.
Malmaison, the famous chateau of the
ill fated Josephine de Deauharnais, is
simply going by piecemeal to the dogs,
or rather to the rats, and it has been ad
mirably suggested that the place should
bo converted into a museum containing
historical relics of the first empire. In
the beginning of the present summer
Malmaison was offered for sale at an
upset price of 10,000, but no bidder
could bo found. The park is now let out
in small lots to builders, and hideous
villas are rising around the chateau. The
two facades of the mansion that of the
courtyard and of the garden are intact,
but the interior is like a barn. The salon
of Josephine still exists, with its mural
decorations of birds and gilt flowers, and
so do tho dining hall, the council cham
ber shaped like a tent and the library;
but the furniture is all gone, and the
"pleasure house" of old is a melancholy
wreck. Paris Cor. London Telegraph.
Ten Hours of Sleep.
James Payn, tho novelist and corre
spondent, has come to the conclusion that
the only salvation of our writers and
literary classes in general lies in going to
bed early, getting ten hours of sleep, and
understanding that brain work needs
more complete and certain recuperation
than ordinary physical labor. The office
and necessity of sleep is getting to be bet
ter appreciated. Little is heard nowa
days about burning midnight oil. Obedi
ence to physiological laws, alone, will
enable a man to escape mental - breiik
down at an early age. Genius cannot
override nature. It is impossible to turn
night into day, or to habitually do two
days' work in one. Common sense and
method are better than brilliance, and
judgment is ju the end ahead of genius.

Peculiar form of Hysteria.
Dr. Richardson mentions a case of a
young woman attending a consumptive
patient and was so impressed with the
paroxysms of coughing that she began to
imitate them. The imitation was per
fect and continued two years, her friends
believing she had consumption, though
not a sign of it existed in her lungs. At
last si ie suddenly recovered. It was only
hysteria of a peculiar form. Now many
similar cases are cured, and from this the
doctor thinks he has found tho secret
arresting this malady. M. L. Holbrook,
M. D., in Herald of Health.

There is a mine near Leudville into
which women pro never admitted. If a
woman were permitted to enter this mine
I believe every last man on the premises
would quit work. The mine has had an
accident for every woman who has vis
ited it. Every time a woman has been
admitted immediately after her depar
ture 6ome mishap with damage to prop
