A rapid milking machine has been
Invented by a man over at Toronto
which can clean out twenty-five cows
In twenty minutes. This 1b a little

The street car lines of Toronto pay
the city $81)0 a year for each mile of
track besides 8 per cent of gross re
ceipts and 20 per cent on all receipts
above three millions. Their fare is
only four cents for grown persons, and
they give a half rate to all who attend
school, Irrespective of age. This looks
like the millennial reform which will
come In some other cittos when they
get honest politics and common sense
The Novedades, the Spanish Govern
ment organ, officially announces that
Spain will have 150,272 soldiers under
arms in Cuba by Kept 5. There will be
76,272 regulars and 80,000 volunteers.
The regulars are classified as follows:
59,900 Infantry, 3,876 cavalry, 1,853 ar
tillery, 1,415 engineers, 2,700 marine In
fantry, 970 military police, 4,400 civil
guards, and 1.152 guerrillas. As the
permanent army of Spain is only 115,
735 it follows that considerably over
one-half of it will soon be In Cuba and
that the reserves, both first and second,
have been called upon for service. Un
less this comparatively immense force
makes short work of the lusurgents
the expense of the campaign will make
short work of the national exchequer,
which is already in a shaky condition,
as the government has had to pass tbe
Interest payments on Us debt A finan

The death of Thomas Hovenden. who
will perhaps be best remembered In
Chicago as the painter of that popular
picture at the World's Fair, "Break
ing Home Ties," shows that the man
who can stir the hearts of other men
through the methods of art must needs
have a big heart of his own. The pro
fessional critics, of course, scoffed at
Hovenden's picture and called it liter
ary. It was a picture that told a story,
they said, and a picture should not tell
a story, but should only be beautiful,
should be artistic, for art's sake alone.
But the great body of the people shrug
ged their shoulders at the dictum of
the professional critics and stood! in
crowds from morning till night about
Hovenden's picture. It stirred every
parent and every man who remembered
his parents, and that the tens of thou
sands, perhaps hundreds of thousands,
of World's Fair visitors who recollect
this picture will feel no surprise at
learning that Its painter, seeing a child
on the railway track in Imminent dan
ger of losing her life, sprang to save
her and lost his own life in tbe at-
The word "dago" Is not an Italian
word, nor a legitimate word In any
language. It Is derived from the Span
ish proper name Diego, pronounced
Djrago, which Is tbe most common
Christian name of men In Spain. St
Diego, or Bt James, belnj( the tutelary
saint of that country. All Spanish
naotfters name one son after the saint,
and the result Is that Diego Is the Chris
tian name one oftenest bears among
the Spaniards and on the borders of the
Mediterranean. From this came the
habit of the sailors of all nationalities
la the Mediterranean of calling every
man employed on vessels whose name
was unknown to them Diego, or Dago,
that being the name they most fre
quently heard among such employes.

Tbe statement was made a year or
two ago that a prominent scientific In
vestigator had taken the firefly as a
hint that it might be possible to effect
a great Improvement In onr modes of
obtaining artificial light The Cuban
firefly is the most perfect example
known of the production of the maxi
mum quantity of light with the mini
mum of heat The light emitted Is es
timated at W) per cent of the total en
ergy. Nearly at the other end of the
scale are the candle and ordinary gas
jet which give only 2 per cent of light
to 08 per cent of heat for the unit of
energy at work In the prwea of com
bustion. The sun's rays give 30 per cent
of light to 70 per cent of heat and the
arc lamp 10 jmt cent of light to 1st pet
cent of heat It Is not improbable that
the use of acetylene will effect a vast
Improvement In this respect, the gas
giving a large amount of light in propor
tion to the heat evolved. In this con
nection It may be noted that the latest
estimates of beat in the sun's interior
place It at a little more than 70.1)
degrees of the Fahrenheit scale, while
the temerature at what appears to us
to be the solar surface probably Is
somewhat less than 20.000 degrees.
Chicago Tribune: Interviews with
several prominent members of the
Methodist Church in this city indicate
the growth of a feeling that the long
standing "time limit" ought to be abol
ished Probably the time limit would
have been discarded long ere this but
for the conservatism which renders
many unwilling to part with some
thing that undoubtedly was a promi
nent feature among tbe people who
first were called "Methodists." But
conditions have changed since the days
of the Wesley and of Whitfield. Then
the great majority of those who "spoke
In meeting" were nnoducnted men. fer
vent In spirit and devoted to the work,
but destitute of the wide range of In
formation and Ideas which often are
found associated with extensive read
ing, to say nothing of sp-cial study
for the work of the ministry- It was
ea-y enough for such men to "preach
themselves out" In the course of a few
months of talking to people who sub
stantially formed the same audience
time after time. So It was desirable
to keep them on the move, to prevent
any one of them from talking to the
same set of hearers so long that they
would come to regard him as telling
the sume old story over and over again,
and finally lose luterewt In hearing bim
talk at alL Very many of those
preachers did not even possess the va
riety of material at the command of a
Church of England vicar di-scribed iu
Hill's Village Dialogues, who had a
collection of fifty-two sermons, every
one of which had been heafd twenty
two times by a farmer who attended
his church that number of years. Hut
now the times have changed. The
average Methodist minister 1 as well
educated as his Baptist, Congregation
al or Episcopal brother, and is just as
much entitled as they are to stay sev
eral years in one place If the people to
whom he ministers desire him to do so.
Prolably It would be for the best In
terests of tbe Methodist churches to
rescind the time limit rule, with reap
pointment each year as a condition of
being allowed to remain.
Chicago Times-Herald: It seems that
the German, French and Belgian con
suls, resident In Chicago, have Just dis
covered that a very large horse can
ning establishment has flourished In
this city for some time. It U also a
revelation to them that r".ie product of
the concern is shipped to their coun
tries instead of being consumed in Chi
cago, but it is certainly a revelation
to no one else. If there were no de
mand for horse meat in those countries
the Chicago concern would certainly
find the business unprofitable. More
over, the palatable virtues of horse
meat were first discovered In the coun
tries represented by these gentlemen,
and there Is no reason why the epicures
across the water should have any pre
judices against the American horse
flesh, provided It is healthful and prop
erly preserved. As to horseflesh, it all
depends on the horse. No man wants
to eat a porter-house cut from one of
Yerkes' street car animals, neither does
the appetite crave an equine fillet from
the shanks of the faithful animal that
pulls the truck wagon. A nice Juicy
hamburger made from the round or the
loin of a frisky young colt, bowtver.
Is said to be far more edible and lus
cious than bear steak, and in point of
healthfulness and fieedom from bac
teria and bacilli Dr. Kellly places It far
ahead of much of tbe beef that finds
its way Into our market So far as
horse tall soup Is concerned. It can be
said to the credit of the packers of
horse meat that it Is made from horse's
tails, while there Is no certainty that
the commercial ox tall soup Is not made
from the ears and shanks of a sickly
bovine. If the horse canning Industry
la discouraged what Is to become of the
great crops of corn and oats in tbe
West? The horse Is the only animal
that eats corn and oats Jo any great ex
tent If the bicycle and motorcycle
deprive him of his occupation be should
still be raised for canning purposes,
and If raised for this purpose he would
continue to make a market for the
great crops of the West

The defendant entered the court room, accompanied by bis paren'S
and an elderly lady friend. He was the

Copy of the testimony taken day by
Barnes joined in the request and
the order was made. Mr. Dei p-ey had
another gun to fire. He wisned the

the motion rather pr mature. I
think not, yo'ir honor," reap d-d Mr.
Iteuprey. "i understand ibe district
attorr.ey intends to touch on the evl
denre in his opening address."
"All witneses in this case, with the
exception of oflieers who have made
the arrests, will please retite," ordered
Judge Murphy.
Those whom the mandate of tlw
court affected reluctantly rose and
walked out. Tbe bailiff took them in
charge and conducted them to Judge
Murphy chambers. Dmrict Attorney
Barnes arose and in a clear voice and
convincing stvle made the opening
statement to the jtny. At one point
In the address Mr. tames alluded to
the finding of the mutilated body of
Minnie Williams, but it was met wUh
an objection from Deuprey for th de
fense. 'I will permit you to proceed," re
plied Judge Murphy, "but I do not say
that I will allow you to prove it, as
that is a matter which rill have to be
decided later en."
Judging by the district attorney's
statement it is rvident that be will at
tempt to connect tbe two crimes by
the intriduction of testimony connect
ing the defendant with the murder of
Miss Williams. A recess was taken
till 2 o'clock and when the court recon
vened, the jury accompanied by the de
fendant and the a'torn"VB, prwe-ried
to tbe scene of the crimes. Durrant
was guarded by three deputy sheriffs
and a squad of polleemeu kept order

Washington, D. C, ept. 4. Today
at the naval ordnance proving grounds,
Indian Head, Md., a ballastic plate
representing the side armor of tbe new
battleship Iowa was subjected to a trial
of its durabiiity in such a manner to
show bow it would fare if actually in
position with the vessel. To attain
this end a structure representing a sec
tion of the side of the Iowa was con
structed, acd to this tbe plate has been
attached. The naval ordnance bereau
has a purpose in gaining knowledge of
the experiment as to whether or not re
sistance is given to a plate through its
attachment to the flexible structure,
representing, as it does, the flexibility
of a ships side. With one exception
in England there is no record of any

Prookltn, J. Y, Sept. 3. A rail
road Hccuieiit occurred at 3:40 yester
dar a ternoon near tbe Woodlawn sta
tion of the Sea lies eh ralroid. While
train No. 3, drawing ve teen rars,
which were crowded almost to suffoca
tion by excursionists, was standidg at i
the Woodlawn station a "wild ca " en
gine came thunderii g along tbe tracki
in its wake and crasLed into the rear
car, telescoping it. The car was filled
with passengers, most of whom came
from York.
Msi.y of ti e people ssw the engine
come tearing along and jumped and
thus saved their lives. The grest ma
jority of the passengers were on board
at the time, among tbem a number of
women and children. A colored porter
on tbe platform, who saw the engine
coming along without a fireman or en
gineer, yelled to Ibe passengers to make
their escape. Engine No. 61, th
"wildcat" smashed into tbe rear car,
smashing it into kindling wood and
burying men, woman and children un
der it. There was a mad rush of surg
ing humanity from the doomed train.
The groans of the injured filled the air
and the snorting and puffing of tbe im
prisoned engine made a deafening
noise. Scarcely half a dozen people
kept their beads or were able to render
assistance to the injured. Patrolman
Kelly, who was on duty at the station,
turned In several ambulance calls, and
five ambulances from the surround hos
pitals promptly responded.
In the meantime the woodwork of
tbe wrecked carriage caught fire and
was rapidly in a blaze. Fou rears ere
completely destroyed before the tra:n
bands were able to uncouple the cur.
At soon as It was detached the engine
quickly drew the other cars out of (lun
ger. Hy this time all the passengers
had disembarked and there was the
wildest kind of excitement.
It was thought that at least ten per
sons were killed ou; right. The groans
of injured rent tbe air and could be
beard almost a mile. People rushed
from near by houses and the telephone
and telegraph wires in every direction
were put in motion to redder aid. Four
cars were telescoped by the force of the
collision. Tiie engine, which caused
all the mischief, was used for shunting
trains at the Sixty-fifth street and
Third avenue departed of tbe Sea
Beach railroad. It became unmanage
able and dashed forward, throwing the
engineer and fireman from the cab.
There was no obstacle for the wildcat
e giue. It dashed along the track at a
fearful rate of speed. Engine No. 3
was in charge of Engineer William,
and Fireman Harry Hansen. They
were on their way to Coney island.
Charles Petit was the conductor. All
the cars were badly smashed.

San Fkancisco, Sept, 3. Advices

At La l.ibertad, where the Acapulco
topped, a big seizure of arms has been
mad and it was alleged by the govern
merit authorities that Antonio Ezeta'a
sympathizers gathered the arms. The
rifles were Winchesters and Reming
tons and were secreted In a house in
tbe outskirts or the town. When tbe

Chioaoo, Sept, 1-Ti.e knight of
red flag carried tbelr banner through
the streets of Chicago notwithstanding
tb order of the mayor, but It redness
was concealed by a covering of black.
They held a celebration yesterday a! ter
noon in the back yard of a aa o n on
Cly bourn avenue, at which 0ctr Ne-
be and Michael Schwab, two of the an
archists pardoned by Governor Altgld
and Lucy Parsona were present. The
day was made tbe occasion for the pre
sentation to the "socialist labor party"
of Chicago of a handsome red flag by
the wives and daughters of socialist.
At the grounds it was unfurled amid
great cheers, but It was not waved, ac
cording to orders. The gathering of,
socialists, some of whom declared
tbemselvea to be anarchists and
others who would be Insulted at
tbe name, was not so large or enthusi
astic aa other similar assemblages have
been. The speakers of tbe day were
M. V. liritzeus and Michael Schwab.
After the presentation of tbe flag Mr.
Url'zeus scored Mayor Swift for inter
fering with the liberty of American
citizens by refusing 'bem the right to
march through the streets with a red
flaf, the "symbol of socialism."
Mr. Schwab disappointed those who
asked biro to ray much regarding bis
being put In prison. The gentleman
did say that himself and others would
succeed if a hundred thousand of them
were thrown In prison, but be failed to
make any personal remarks. He urged
thosii present not to go home and sleep,
but to go to work and ral. their peo
ple and teach their children to fight
against oppression.
J. Kelr Hard ie delivered a brief ad
dress st the fortnightly meeting or the
Chicago labor congress yesterday after
noon. Tbe relatlon'.of the independent
labor party to anarchism, he declared,
was one of open hostility. Anarchy
represents no government, but the
laber advocates bellrve in making use
of the existing forces of their govern
ment, both national and local, to ac
complish the betterment of their con
dition. He was apposed to revolution,
because men who would r.ot take tbe
trouble to vote could not be counted
npon to fight, but even If they fought
and were successful they would not be
capable of carrying out the new organ
ization of industrial enterprise and
there would be a return to the old con
ditions. Tbe prospects for socialism
appeared more favorable in this couttry
than In Europe because there Is a larger
suffrage, no hereditary aristocracy and
a better system of electing the national
government. The first step must be In
the organization of trades unions, and
If workingmen were unable to do this
they could not. hop to carry out tbe
greater reforms which if cialism would
bring about. Mr. Hard e and John
Swlnton will speak at the the Audi,

Dknter, Colo, Sept. 3 No sotlon
by representative of foreign countries
has been taken In relation to the miners
drowned in the Sleepy Hollow mine at
Central City, nor will anything be dona.
Tbe mine companies can do nothing at
present towards rescuing tbe bodies of
tbeir unfortunate employes. Th state
Inspector and the mine managers ware
in conference but tbe, task appeared
so hopeless that they could arrive at
no conclusion. It will coat fully $10,
000 to unwater the property and tbe
companies need time to do this. An
Investigation may find tbe cause of
the disaster to hays been the Illegal
working of ground by the Flak people
beyond their property lines and nearer
to the Meepy Hollow and Amerlcut
than waa generally understood.
