The medical examinations made in
New York city preliminary to granting
health certificates to shops reveal an in
credible degree of filth of clothing and
person. The children taken from the
candy factories were especially shocking
in this respect, and demonstrated anew
the urgent need of bathing facilities, both
in the workingman's home, where bath
tubs seem to be unknown, and in numer
ous and accessible swimming baths(
where a plunge can follow the day's
Boys are found handling candy with
open sores upon the hands, and girls
wrapping and packing it whoso arms
were covered with an eruption which is
the direct consequence of filth. Boys
from knee-pants shops have presented
themselves so covered with vermin as to
render a close examination almost im
possible. C. 13. Treat, residence and lifeunknown,
added another name to the long list of
Central Park suicides. Park Policeman
Geoghan found the body of a man in the
Tark, near 64th street and Eighth ave
nue. The turf about was flecked with
blood, and by the side of the suicide lay
a blood-covered razor and a small lan
cet. The man had effectually but withal
most awkwardly, severed his jugular vein
and had bled to death.
Clippings of rules for preserving the
health had the man's pocketbook all to
themselves, as it contained not a cent of
money. The man was evidently a

name C. B. Treat does not appear in
the directory. The body was removed
to the Morgue, and unless claimed, will
be buried in the trench at the Potter's
Mrs. Delia Burns, 45 years old, of 68
Myrtle avenue, Brooklyn, was found
insane in Filth avenue, and the police
have every reason to believe that the
woman was driven crazy by hunger.
Shortly alter 1 o'clock Policeman Will
Ham Sol I man, at 46th street and Fifth
avenue, noticed a curious figure stand
ing by the iron fence near the house of
Joseph W. Harper, the publisher, on the
corner. - At first lis thought it was a
child, for the fence is scarcely four feet
high, and the figure did not reach the
top of it; but on going nearer, he saw
that the figure was that of a little, poorly-dressed
woman. As she clung to the
fence the woman looked wistfully at
the big windows of the Harper man
sion. One of her delusions was that the man
sion was a hotel. Sellman took her to
the station house, while she constantly
asked fur food. Sergt. Kane succeeded
finally in getting her uume and address;
then he sent to Bellevue Hospital for an
ambulance, and had the little woman
taken to the insane pnvillion.
"My carriage, at lastl" joyfully ex
claimed the woman when the ambulance
Otto Elon, an elegantly dressed young
man, communicated to Judge Simms in
Essex Market Court that he could not
find work, and, therefore, wished to be
sent as a vagabond to the workhouse.
"You seem pretty well dressed for a vag
abond," remarked the Judge. "That's
pretty true," answered Elon, and I will
add that I'm strong and healthy, but I
have nothing left to eat. I would like
the city to take care of me." He was
held for decision.
Louis Sauter, the proprietor of a'
twenty-acre farm at Roseland, Essex
County, N. J., went about a hundred
yards in the rear of his house, lay down
on his back, placed a dynamite cartridge
under his chin, lighted the fuse and blew
his head off. Sauter was a stone-cutter,
who went to Koseland about ten years
ago. He got work in Sch rump's stone
quarries, about half way between Rose
land and Orange, and bought the
twenty-acre farm for $1,000 as a home
stead. He paid $500 down and gave a
mortgage for the other $500. The land
was completely covered with woods.
He built a little two-etory shanty, con
taining four rooms, which cost him about
$100. He expected to work at his trade
and incidentlly clear his farm, which he
thought would support his family. His
earnings in the stone quarry he proposed
to devote to the payment of the mort
gage on his place. For eight years he
worked hard, without missing a day, but
he found that he had no time to clear
away the trees which covered his twenty
acres, or to earn more than enough
money to support his wife and three
children. He had not even been able to
build a barn, or to clear enough land to
pasture a cow. About a year ago he
was told that Riley Bond Of Orange,
who held the mortgage on his place, had
transferred it to a man named Merklin
of West Orange. This troubled Sauter
tcreatlv, and. although Mr. Merklin made
. no demand for payment, Sauter worried
over it constantly. Then, too, he lost
his place in the stone quarries, and had
no means whatever for supporting his
family. Besides his wife, Mathilde, there
were three children: Wilhelm, aged 14;
Amelia, aged 12, and Louis, aged 9.
Wilhelm had for a while been in the em
ploy of a Newark milkman, but was
taken sick and was compelled to give op
position. That took away the family's
last bit of income. After worryingseveral
days, and finding no hope of getting
work and clearing his land, Sauter killed

By bunking up all fall-planted tres in
jury from heaving during the winter may
be largely prevented.
Any attempt to change the form of a
tree after it commences to bear is almost
certain to damage the tree seriously.
Grapes in open ground that are pruned
in the fall should be laid down aud kept
down by weighing to hold them in place.
By gathering up all rubbish around the
garden and orchard, harboring places
for insects during the winter may be
In the fall is a good time to plant rows
of evergreens in such positions that they
will shelter the orchard and buildings
from cold winds.
A writer claims that a thin coat of axle
grease applied to the apple trees in the
late fall, with a stiff brush, will keep off
mice and rabbits.
Repotting the plants becomes necessary
at intervals for two reasons, nainnly, the
plant uses up the availablefertility in the
soil aud fills the pot with roots.
Soot-water is a safe and efficient fertil
izer for all kinds of plants growing in
pots. Generally the better plan is to put
soot in water aud use it in watering the
Whenever a young tree is to be set in
an orchard in place of an old one that
bus died, remove all the dead roots and
the dirt that surrounded them, and put
in new soil.
The clusters of eggs that may be found
on apple tree limbs should be pinked off
during the open weather of winter and in
this way prevent the hatching of the tent
All small apples and others defective in
form or damaged by worms have their
best market on the farm as food for the
stock. If packed with sound fruit, even
in small proportion, they reduce the price
Do not forget that a grade animal will
not breed all his good qualities. Noth
ing but a thoroughbred will give you im
proved stock from your mnres and heif
ers, or from the droves and flocks. Do
not waste your time.
Experiments show that a grain of
wheat produces forty fold. Every pound
shupld bring forty. It therefore follows
that much of our seed wheat is wasted
when we sow one and one-fourth bushels
an acre and get from ten to twenty.
Keep the back barnyard as neat as the
front; have the manure pile, the old
board pile, the rubbish pile, always un
der cover. Make the neatness of your
place noticeable, and teach not only your
own boys, but the whole neigborhood,
lessons of beauty and thrift.
Italian bees are now conceded to be the
best bees for this country- New varie
ties come up every season, are given a
short-lived boom and drop below the
horizon to again appear briefly in a few
years. The Italian has been tried and
has not been found wanting. They are
If the strawberry plants are mulched
in good season, the moisture will hold
better, the yield will be greater, the ber
ries larger and they will be kept cleaner.
Apply this much ns soon as the ground
freezes hard enough to bear up a wagon.
After September has passed there is a
liability of sud Jen changes of weather,
and the stock will be affected thereby, ac
cording to its condition. The roofs of
the barns and stables should be exam
ined, and all leaks repaired. Dampness
does more harm than cold. No animal
will thrive if it is compelled to remain all
night on a damp floor, upon which water
drips, even in moderate weather, and
should disease appear in one case it may
The fall is an excellent time to haul out
the manure for the garden. There is not
so much danger of it wasting on the
ground as there is in the manure pile
under the eaves of the stable and barn.
The ground will take up all the fertility re
leased by the rains aud hold nil the val
uable parts until the plant life in spring
shall demand its surrender. It is so
much handier, also, to do the work in
the fall when nothing else is pressing.
Mrs. Cleveland's Christening of the SU
Louis Commented On.
Cleveland, Ohio, Nov. 21. At the
afternoon session of the National W.
C T. U. yesterday, Mrs. Campbell of
Wisconsin arose to call attention to
the fact- that there was on the floor of
the convention a woman who had
christened a Rtenm.ship by breaking a
bottle of water over its its bow in
place of champague. This woman, who
was called to the platform, was intro
duced as Mrs. II A. Shores. In pre
senting her, Miss Willard said: "We
will certainly hold up a woman who
will bring in a new custom so good as
that We think a great deal ot Mrs.
Cleveland, and of how she stood for
total abstinence tinder difficult conr
ditions, and yet we cannot help but
think that water would have been
better to pour over the recently
launched St, Louis than champagne."
At to-day's convention Miss tran
ces E. Willard was re-elected presi
dent, with Mrs. Stevens vice presi
dent at large.
Reports from the Woman s Temper
ance Publishing association were
called for. The first was that of Miss
Martha Suddith, managing editor of
the Union Signal, the official organ of
the order. Mrs. Katharine Lent
Stevenson reported for "Books and
Leaflets" and Mrs. Caroline F. Grow
also reported for the Union Signal.

NOW IN PROGRESS.
THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE who sell Clothing cheaper than we do;
that is because we don't deal in cheap goods. The great showman,
P. T. Barnum, said thaf'the way to get rich Sato give every man the
worth of Mb money when you have dealings with him." Now that is just
what we do. Our customers are our friends. We don't arouse their suspi
cions by advertising, for instance, "A $10.00 Overcoat for $5.00." Who
could afford to sell a $10.00 overcoat for $5.00? We can't and we can sell
as cheaply as anyone because we manufacture our own goods.
We have over

Men's, Boy's and Children's sizes. We have cut the prices on these as low
as we possibly cun and make anv profit at all. The prices are also cut very
low on some lines of UNDERWEAR, SUSPENDERS, CAPS,. ETC. Those
who attended our sale last winter will not need a second invitation, and to
others we say, COME I You will not be sorry.

The MHsonrl Supreme Court Decides the
John Held Cane .4 gain t the State.
Jkffkkson City, Mo., Nov. 21. -In
division No. 2 of the supreme court
to-day the case of the state appellant
against John Keid, president of the
defunct Western trust and savings
association of Kansas City, indicted
for receiving a deposit of $51.75 from
Alexander C. Gibson when the com
pany was in a failing condition, was
decided in favor of lieid.
The state was prosecutor on the
theory that, as the t"ust company
transacted the function of a bank of
deposit and discount, its officers were
liable to prosecution under section
3581, revised statutes, which makes it
a felony for a bank official to reoeive
deposits when the bank is in a failing
condition. The case was taken to
Clay county for trial and on a de
murrer, the trial judge held that offi
cers of trust companies were not
criminally liable under the statute
applying to bankers. The state ap
pealed. Judge Gantt, speaking for the court,
holds that the trial judge ruled cor
rectly. There are ninety-five indict
ments of this kind pending in Jack
son county against the officers of four
trust companies, representing losses
said to aggregate nearly $500,000.
