Washington, April LO Secretary
Aiger received a reply from General
Otis to his inquiry of yesterday as to
whether reinforcements proposed to be
sent to him to relieve the volunteers
would be sufficient for the purposes of
tho campaign. General (Jlis replies
in the affirmative, the estimate of 0,
000 men to constitute the army agree
ing with his own calculations.
The program for the moverurntof
the regulars out to Manila and of the
volunteers homeward, therefore, will
ho carried out according to General
Otis' statement contained in his dis
patch o! yesterday. General Otis adds
to his message the hopeful remark
that he expects very shortly to be able
to report a decided improvement in
Ihe situation in the Philippines.
The volunteers in the Philippines
will return home in the order in which
they sailed for Manila. The date upon
which each troop sailed follows:

that Napoleon was passing it to a

First Maker of Spectacle.
The invention of spectacles is often
attributed to Roger Bacon, who died
in 1294. Further research, however,
has shown that in 1285 Savrino Degli
Armati, a Florentine, worked glass
into the form of a lens as a help to
vision. For him, therefore, may justly
be claimed the honor of having in
vented spectacles. He died in Flor
ence in 1611 and was Duriea in tne
Church of Santa Maria Maggiore.

stated that it was the hardest job of
the kind he had ever found.
"The Fair' Stock Attxchccl.
The stock of goods in the general
store known as "The Fair" is in -the
hands of Sheriff Wheeler, ho having
seized it on a writ of attachment is
sued by the Richard son -Roberts-Byrne
Dry Goods company of Chicago.
The store has been conducted by J.
Wolf & Co., for the past year, but a
man by the name of A. C. Newell pur
chased it this week. In their petition
the Chicago firm set forth that the
sale was not a bona tide one, but was
made fo' the purpose of defrauding
creditors. Newell purchased the stock
for $1.0(10, and it is paid to be worth
about $1,-500. The claims which have
been filed aggregate! $2,o0).
The stock of tho Metropolitan Mil
linery store, owned by the same firm,
has also been attached and the doors
of that institution are closed. The
Cass county bank and the wholesale
millinery (i'ra of Tootle, Weekiie &
Co. of St. Joe are holding claims
against tho latter.
English Workmen Have Many Objec
tion) to Their Introduction.
English workmen do not view with
complacency the introduction of the
American locomotives on the Midland
railway. They are not only an affront
to their national pride, but they see in
them a positive menace to the en
gineers' trades union, which has been
one of the most powerful in all Eu
rope. The American locomotive Is
placed on the rails in Great Britain
at a cost of from 20 to 30 per cent less
than the British makers can produce
the same sort of a machine. So the
working of the American locomotives
is watched with much more than or
dinary interest by men on both sides
of the ocean. If the machines can be
made thoroughly adapted to British
requirements at such a saving of cost
to the British railway companies, it
means that the British maker must
produce them at a like cost or else be
thrown out of the market. That
means lower wages to the British
workman, and against that he will
fight with all his characteristic ob
stinacy, as he ha3 to the introduction
of labor-saving machinery. Even the
long-drawn out and disastrous strike
which made possible the introduction
of the American locomotive, has not
taught them the whole of their lesson.
There is even now a proposition on
foot that the union of locomotive driv
ers shall adopt a rule prohibiting mem
bers from handling an American-made
locomotive, when the engineers' union
shall reach the conclusion, if it does,
that the introduction of the American
machine threatens seriously the wages
of their trade.

An old law of Pennsylvania required
that every girl, when about to leave
her father's or employer's home, where
he had worked until of age, should
receive, as ner aower, one feather bed
and bedding, one full suit of new cloth

has never been annulled, though in
the case of girls indentured to service
it has been merged in a money equiv

CIRL'S WEIGHT OF MAIL.
G.tent Bundle of Letters Sent to MUl
Miss Frances Babcock of Lawrence,
Kan., receive more mail through the
local post office than any other sin
gle person in the town, and more than
any but the largest firms. Miss Bab
cock, it will be remembered, is the
young woman whom John Henry Col
lins admired, and for love of whom, it
is alleged, he killed his father, J. S.
Collins, last May. To her John sent
his damaging "tell nothing" telegram,
and during the sensational trial which
followed his arrest she was an im
portant witness. Aliss Baucock is
now receiving letters from people in
all parts of the country, who
ask her for her photograph, and from
others who merely solicit her auto
graph. The most interesting request
made of this young lady was by an am
bitious St. Louis composir, who asked
for her picture to decorate the fly-leaf
of a sensational love song which he
purposes springing upon an unsus
pecting public. It is entitled "Will My
Sweetheart E'er Forsake Me?" or
sdmething similar. All of these re
quests, it must be said to Miss Bab
cock's credit, are treated with scorn.
She testified at the Collins trial that
she was in the habit of burning hei
letters, and this is the treatment she
gives those from the numerous cu
riosity seekers. Naturally of a mod
est disposition. Miss Babcock seea
nothing to enjoy in the rather grew
some notoriety she has gained from
her connection with the Collins case,

university and society circles no one
would ever suspect that this young
lady had been brought into unusual
prominence as a chance witness In a
sensational murder case.
The Snake Kot.
The "snake nut" tree is a native of
Demerara and Guiana. The nuts are
about the size of a walnut, and when
they are opened the kernel displays a
wonderful resemblance to a snake
coiled up. There are the head, mouth
and eyes, so complete that any one
unacquainted with the nut would be
lieve it to be an imitation by human
hands and not a freak of nature. This
wonderful resemblance to a snake has
induced the natives to consider the
nut an antidote to snake poison. The
tree appears to be peculiar to the low
