(iirl drummer on the Const.
Almost anywhere east of the SIi
hlssippl Valley the girl drummer hai
come to lie regarded as a fact, but it
the vast legion west she Is as yet i
rarity. This Is especially true of ("all
fornla. and Miss (Jlenn Byrne, a bus
tllng girl from New York. Is glad thin
she Is a novelty there. She travels fol
n house that deals In women's ready
made gowns, ami since her arrival It
the (iohleu State she has Ix-eu doing t
tine busliii'ss. Miss Rynie Is a sllii
little girl, not particularly good-look
Ing. but with an attractive manner. Ot
course all drummers even tlx" men
are voluble talkers. According to al
ncmunta this young woman fully sus
tains the general reputation.
"How did you happen to go Into thli
buslnifis?" she was askeil.
"That Is easily answered. I took il
up because I saw that there was a fu
ture In It for mo. It Is one of the few
professions that ore not overcrowilit'
with women. I love the life I ulu lead
lug the very uncertainty of It keep
me constantly In a state of plensurabU
excitement. No, I don't call myself a
new woman nt all.i I fall to see why c
girl cannot be Just as feminine In inj
bi.-sluess as though she knitted tidies
for a living."
Revival of Knlttiri-.
One of the fads which are at presen!
hovering on the brink of general adop
tion Is 'hat of knitting. The iistlui('
of our grandmothers woh quite the rage
at NewMirt last season. The swell girl
went around with bags of yarn on their
arms, and knitted themselves and their
admirers golf, bicycle and tennis stick
ing, as well as traveling bags and urn
brella covers. At present stockings arc
what the fashionable girl devotes most
of her attention, to. The swell young
man has bicycle stockings knitted for
him by his 1.... admirers now. lie ru;
longer has to buy them. All he docs Is
to pick out the color yarn be wants, and
one of his girl friends converts It Intu
Only ma lib should wear white; wid
ows are to be dressed In gray or mauve,
and a bonnet, too, la considered best
form for a widow.
It has become very fashionable to
have odd days to Is? married on, sucli
us Monday or Saturday, an unheard-of
thing a few years ago, when Wednes
day or Thursday was tho day Invaria
A very pretty fashion Is to have loose
bunches of the prevailing flower fast
ened to tho top of the pew's end In the
church; not every one, but nt careless
Intervals, and tho effect Is very strik
ing. The brlde-to-bo, or some near friend
If she can't get through with sn ninny,
writes a note of thanks for euch gift,
tho sooner tho better, and it Is usual to
Introduce the groom's name In some
way and write them In the plural num
ber. A very pretty Idea Is the one In vogue
for tho last few years of having the
marriage certificate Isjtind In white kid,
with a tiumlsT of vacant pages npismd
ed for each guest to sign his name. It
makoa a very Interesting thing to have
and to hand down.

and two injured, t li - dea l are:

When the ex plot ion occurred Wi'.'.iam
Lscey, a contractor, was at work in a
roi k tunnel alo it a mile from the loot
of the shaft nh thirteen men. Imme
diately after the explo-ion a rescuing
gang was organized by Fire Hosb William
K. Jones and Vssistant Foreman John
W. Josephs. The men proceeded down
the ehdft, Jones and Jo-iephs being far
in advance. When about one mile froaa
the foot of the i-hatt they slum bled ove
the bjdies o( Contractor l.acey, Owens,
Herring and Worth. At this point Jones
and Josephs were overcome by black
damp and fell dead in their tracks. The
other rescuers were forced to beat a
hasty retreat, bringing the bodies of
Jones and Josephs with them. '
) A few hours later the air current was
partly restored and the men were able
to push their way into the tunnel, and
at 8:30 last night signalled that they,
bad reiovered the bodies of the four
rock miu'-rs. The rescuers with the;
bodies were brought to the surface,
shortly afterwards. J
: There were teveral theories as to the
cauHe of the explosion. The mine is
known to be a gas-ous one and extra
precautions have always been taken to
guard against explosions. All the menj
at work in the tunnel carried safety
lamps, so it is not believed that the gas
was exploded from a naked lam . The
moet plausible theory is that the ?a8
was ignited by a blast.
' The roof of the fan houee was blown
off and the building otherwise damaged.;
The shock from the explosioa was heard
fully a mile away. The mine is on Are
and will cause the company much trou
ble and expense before the flames can
be subdued. In paHt years this colliery
has been the scene of several bad ex
plosions, 'lhe most destructive oc
curred on Sunday, March 9, 1WK), by1
which ei;ht miners were burned to
death in a most horrible manner, and
two years ago som of the members
of the New Y rk coal exchange
h id an irrow escape. A party of
ten weie on the carriage and leen
lowered a thort distance into the shaft
when an rx plosion took place near the
foot. The carriage was quickly hoisted
ou'. of ihe shaft jiiH', in timi to save the
lives of the New Yorkers.

Ban Francisco, Oct. 29. Commodore
K. Marita, of the imperial Japanese
army, was a passenger on the Bteimer
Coptic, which has arrived from the
Orient, He is an attache of the legation
at Washington, under special commis
sion to visit the navy yardB and ship
building yards of the United States ai d
England, and prepare reports on the
construction of battleships for the guid-
ance of the government in building the
much talked of "new navy."
Commodore Marita is a veteran naval
officer, who has seen much service. He
commanded a vessel during the recei t
Chinese-JapaneBe war, and took an a
tive part in the famous battle of We -Hai-Wei.
During the time lie has been
m the service, he has devote! a great
deal of timi to the study of naval archi
tecture, and is considered an authority
on the subject of his own country.
The mission on which Commodore
Marita cornea tothij country is one of
great importance, for his report will pro
bably greatly influence Japanse govern
ment in letting contracts for a number
oi powerful battleships, fast cruisers and
swift torpedo boata.
"I am here," he Baid, "as the agent
of the Japanean government to inspect
your ship-yards, study naval architec
ture and gain all the information pos
sible in securing the warships it will
need for its own defense. After inspect
ing the American yards, I shall go to
England with the same object in view.
More than that I cannot jay now."
Commodore Marita travels as an at
tache of the Japanese legation, in order
that he may be in closer touch with the
government. He calculates that the
work he has undertaken will requiie
many months of dilligent effort, and he
proposes to commence investigations in
New Honor nnd I'unlHh merit at Onre.

Tronpect of Better Price,
London, Oct. 27. In an interview
with a represenative of the United Asso
ciated Presses, Robert Pim, a member
of one of the leading houses doing busi

elusion that there ie going to be a differ
ent ievel from what they are accustomed
to, and better pricqs. At present we
can take every bushel of California
wheat we can possibly get, and I expect
an immediate rise of another shilling."
