CHILD BRIDES OUT OF DATE.
SINGULAR how sentiment
changes with the modes of a cen
tury.. LHd you ever remark that,
according to all authorities concerned,
your mother and the mother of every
one else of the present generation was
wedded at eighteen? The grandmam-
111:1 usually met their mates and mar
HFvrfed them while still at school, ami ac
cording to tradition their "tirst long
frock was the wedding robe."
Things have changed. The girl of
eighteen to-day Is nardly finished
school, seldom iu society, and she very
rarely marries until she has tasted
two seasons of social joys. To he
sure, evcnkwilh this late marrying, di
vorces are more numerous thati In
olden time. Hut, then they are less
Kveu a broken engagement In other
days was a stigma which no young
woman cared to bring upon herself.
And the broken engagement is often
a blessing I" disguise.
The moral of the whole affair seems
to be that young people should In-ware
of Impulsive betrothals. Hoys and
girls who are scarcely out of their
teens cannot bo regarded as having
tixity of mind, and the chances are
that before the hymeneal altar Is
reached both will have seen that tiny
were mistaken. When this stage is
reached it Is infinitely better to draw
back liefore the final step has been
taken which may ruin two lives. Leis

Those who have been commiserating
the hard' lot of American factory gi'is
have, no doubt, good ground for claim
ing that their lot Is tinnecessnrily op
pressive. Yet In Knglan-' their sisters
are In a far worse plight. Miss .Mere
dith Brown, the English philanthropist,
who has been the champion of tin? fac
tory gir!s for some years, says that
women who know only the slums of
Chicago have no conception of the
horrors and misery of the slums close
to the aristocratic parts of Ivondou.
The girls which Miss Brown's special
mission reaches are so rough and law
less that the Salvation Army would
not take them In, and the directors of
a mission which had InvHed the girte
to tea refused to allow them into the
building again. The girls came to the
feast with pillow slips under their
aprons and snatched everything to eat
off the table before their hostess could
evtop them. Finally the courageous
women interested in the welfare of
these young semi-savages decided that
to rearh the girls they would have to
live among them. Ten dauntless wo
men took up their residence in a rick
ety old house In the very heart of all
the misery ami squalor which make
the wild girls what they are, and their
vfTorts at last were met with more than
encouraging responses. "Hut It is very
hard on the health," says Miss Brown.

The right way to roll your umbrella

Unique Device lor HaMng Kkkh.
An egg beater which excels all oth
ers, especial'y in whipping cream, is
construc ted somewhat like a pump, the
piston being perforated all over and
made with two circles somewhat re
sembling a double dasher for a churn,
only that the dasher is worked in a
small cylinder through which the air is
forced rapidly and with great effect.
Tills Is a tine benter for only one egg
or fbr a small quantity of c ream, which
may Ik- put into a small cup to be
whipped. By the use of this beater
one-half of the whites of the eggs may
be saved by what Is known as the
"Boston water system." Take the
white of one egg nnd add to it as much
cold water as half of the shell will
contain, and beat together. It will ecpial
the whites of two eggs and go as far in
plain cooking or frosting of cakes. This
is simple nature's recipe. The albu
men, when moistened, doubles Itself
by the rapid introduction of air. The.
same rule applies to any number of
whites of eggs. Water should not be;
added to whole eggs, however, as the
egg contains a sufficient quantity.
By using this method the expensive
nngel food cake may be made with only
half the usual expense. Instead of us
ing eleven eggs use only six and add
five tenspoonfuls of cold water. The
cake will be lighter and the quality far
superior to the old process.
A Wreck In the Potato Field.
An old salt, after sailing the sea for
years, thought he would try a life
ashore for awhile. He looked around
for a Job. and was engaged by a farm
er, saying, as he had plowed the deep
for years, he thought he could plow
the land. He went home with the
farmer, and after a good night's reat
and breakfast started out to plow. The
farmer bitched up a yoke of oxen, with
a horse on to lead. Taking two turns
around the field and then turning the
te am over to Jack, he said he would go
to the house for family prayers.
It was plain sailing for a short time,
but the team didn't like Jack's way of
navigating. Thomxen turned the yoke
and things became snarled up. Jack
hove to and went to the house, asking
I for the deacon. He was told the ram-
lly was at prayers, but pushed In and
! hailed the deacon: "Say, deacon, the
i sinrlKiard ox Is on the iiort side and

Washington, Sept. 22. M. I). Batch
ford, president of the united mine work
erg of America, who is here to attend a
special meeting of the ofli'jers of the fed
eration of labor, gave the following aa
thorized statement to the Associated
press yesterday :
Yesterday will see about 75,000 miners
resume work in the bituminous coal
fields of the central states.
"The Btrike generally ended yesterday.
Tnis ih the middle of the twelfth week
of its duration. It vras brought to a
close at our convention, held at Colum
bus, ,0., on the 8th to the 11th of the
present mo ith, the ten days' time be
ing given to allow miners and operators
to come together in Illinois and Weet
Virginia to meet the price fixed 65
cents a ton iu Piitsburg, 66 cents in
Ohio and Indiana, the same to continue
until the end of December.
"The mining situation is not liVely to
become disturbed again until the be
ginning of next year, fct which time we
hope to be able to settle wage differen
cue amicably and without the necessity
of a strike. It is well understood that
the fight will continue from the preeeut
time in all fields and against all opera
tors who refuse to meet the rates.
"The greatest trouble will be found in
Wet Virginia and a portion ot Illinois.
I am still hopeful, however, that the
producers in thoBe fields will conform
to a charge and put their mines into
operation. Failing to do this, we will
fight them, as we have done, until the
beginning of next year, at which time,
it is said, their present contracts will
"I am well satisfied with the agree
ment reached, and feel that it is the
greatest victory grained by trades unions
for years. Of course, the victory is not
altogether one of the miners. While
they have done the striking, trades
unions and organized bjdiea have sup
plied the necessaries, without which the
miners could not possibly succeed. It
is a victory for organized labor, and not
for any particular trade, and we want
our friends who have helped ua to feel
that it is their victory, as well as ours.
I feel very grateful for the assistance
given us by the American federation
of labor, nd the kindly disposition
shown us at all times by Mr. Gompers
and the membere of his executive com
mittee." St. l.ouls In Friiglileiiofl.

thi ease look like one of ordinary inter

of a very mild type. I shall have the

yellow fever has died out in the south.
Dr. Starkhoff was asked what would be
the effect of so many people from tin
midst of fever-stricken district coming
into this city. He said he had no feai
that they would spread the plague. A(
the worst there could only be e pnrauic

Washington, Sept. 23. The state de

most imporoant statement made in the
Associated press cable dispatches from
Madrid yesterday, namely, that the
countries of Europe, with the exception
of Austria, justify the interposition of
the United States in favor of the ter

recalled that while ilr. Woodford was

out that the United States minister's
visit at various European courts had
been to sound the governments to which
they were accredited with a viev to
learning bow intervention in favor of
Cuba would be regarded. Although it
was not generally expected that this
would succeed, there is ground enough
to accept the statement in the Madrid
cable as authorized by the facts.

and placed in Belem prison on suspicion
of haying acquiesced in the killing of
Arroyo, during the official investigation
of the affair, the former chief of police
was placed on the stand and asked to
detail his connection with the matter.
To all questions he responded that he
was a great admirer of the president
and that be felt the scandalous attempt
made upon his life merited severe pun
iehment. The judge permitted this eva

dered the inspect . r to reply directly to

chief confessed without reservation the

Cuelar, a groom in the service of Velas

night before the killing Don Edouardo
had sent him to buy knives, which he
had delivered over to his master with

The judge placed before the witness
some of the knives used in the commis

Denver, Colo., Sept. 23. A device to
thaw the frozen ground of Klonkike has
been invented by . Parker Doe of Crip
ple Creek. A formal trial of the ma
chine was made vesterday. and it was
found to work like a charm, although
there was no frozen ground to try it on.
Six hundred of the machines will be
manufactured at once and transported
to Klondike in the spring. A miner,
recently returned from Klondike, has
examined the machine and says it is
Just what the miner in Alaska needs.
The scheme is to generate gas in a tank,
the gas passing to a blow pipe where,
becoming ignited, it is forced out in the
form of a flame. It can be directed in

Cbulucoth, O., Sept. 24. The
lage of Bainbridge was the scene of one
of the moat disastrous conflagrations
that ever occurred in this county. An
entire square, containing most of the
prominent business houses, several
handsome residences and the Methodict
church was entirely destroyed and two
prominent business men lost their lives
in an explosion which occurred in the
drug store of W. P. Beardaley.
The fire was started in a barn in the
rear of Perrin Brown's home by hie boy,
md two other little boys who were play'
ing with matches. The flames spread
rapidly and to the main buildings.
Beardsley's drug store adjoining was in
the midst of the blaze. Then the terri
Die explosion occurred. Mr. Bear Jsley,
who was inside endeavoring to save
some of his property, losing his life in
his ruins. His brother-in-law, Thomaa
Higgins, who went to his rescue was un
able to get out and was burned to death,
while several others were more or less
injured, but none fatally. There was a
stiff breeze blowing, which fanned the
blaze to greater fury and getting a fresh
etart from the burning oils and chemi
cals in the wrecked drug store, the fire
leaped from house to house.
OUTSIDK ASSISTANCE ASKED.
A message was sent to Beverly and to
this city asking for aid and both fire
departments promptly responded. The
Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern and the
Ohio Southern railroads sent special
trains with the engines, but they did
not arrive until almost 4 o'clock, nearly
three hours after the first alarm was
given. The best that could be done
was to prevent the fire from being com
municated to the other side of the street
and the fir-men soon had the flames un
der control. After the destruction ol
Beardsiey's drug store the following
prope-ty was consumed :
T. M. Eich, Armstrong's livery stable,
J. R. head's store, Ogden's saloon, an
empty business property, Brichman's
barber shop, McKee's residence, Sey
mour Morris' residence, W. F. Beards
ley's residence, Houser's grocery, Mc
Gill's millinery store and Andrew Al
derman's shoe store. But two houses
were standing on the square, both being
private residences. The estimated loss
is $50,000. The bodies of Beardsley and
Higgins were found on the floor about
fifteen feet from the front entrance, mu
tilated and burned beyond recognition.
The list of wounded includes :
John Walley, cut on right arm and
Homer Lungria, broken hip.
Jack Huger, finger on right hand
Albert Frey, internal injuries received

Chicago, Sept. 24. Judge Showalter
yesterday dissolved the injunction se

that there was no basis for the conten

in the state court at Rock Island, and
therefore the United States court should
not be asked to decide it.
