Anderson and two comrades, .Too
Klmbrough and Lee lluilmnn, went
on a spree and went together to this
tent wct of Ames, where there were
some people of bad character staying.
About 3 o'clock in the morning they
came back, carrying a keg of beer that
wasnot quite empty. Anderson went
up the trnek to hide the keg and
his companions went Into the ear to
sleep. Anderson was last seen allvo
walking unsteadily up the track carry

on the track or did not have enough
control over his faculties to get out of

A Washington, Aug. !i, special says:
Secretary 1 1 Ay's reply to Li Hung
Cluing has closed the negotiations with
China, unless the old viceroy is ablu to
secure the full acceptance of our terms
relative tc the foreign ministers and
that at once. No orders, therefore,
looking to n relaxation of the prepara

gone, out from Washington for, as thu
situation is described by one of thu
leading ofllcials here, "there will be no
bargaining on our part in advance of
the concession of the Chinese authori
ties of full and free epmmunlention
with the foreign ministers." There
is, mcrcover, a note ominously
close to actual war In Secretary Hay's
declaration that the conduct of the
Chinese government is "unfriendly."
That kind of language is extreme in
diplomacy, and it is only a narrow step
between it nml formal war.

uf the experts here as to the lights
alaeady reported near Tien Tsln be

more than tin result of reconnols

strong is no inconsiderable force, and
the fact that the Japanese sulTeied se
verely is regarded here as proof posi
tive that the relief column will have
some lively lighting ahead.

New KhiB of Italy Will Pattern After
King Victor Emmunuel III. has ad

the Italian people:
"The second lilim of Italy is dead.

DID NOT EAT TOADSTOOLS
The Norrl Family I'ulittiiird by Orutilut
It was developed at the Inquest upon
the membeis of the Norrls family,
three of whom died nt Harvey, 111.,
supposedly from eating toadstools,
that they weie in fact poisoned by
mushrooms, and not by toadstools. It
was shown that the family ate mush
rooms of the finest quality, and not
toadstools at all.
Itobeit Martin, n mushroom expert,
testllled that in his opinion the pois
oning was caused by a small black bug
which lie said he had found recently
making Its home in the top of mush
rooms. "1 don't know, of course." ho said,
"that the Norrls family was poisoned
in tills way, but they certainly ate
mushrooms and not toadstools, A
while ago I found some of these bugs
in mushrooms and noticed that thej
exuded a viscous lluld which surround
ed them as they lay In the mushrooms
I placed the lings anil the portion ol
thu mushroom containing them In n
saucer of milk, fed the milk to neat
arid in two hours the eat was dead."
Mr. Martin showed several of the
bugs which he had taken fiom mush
rooms. Several professional men, well
versed In entomology, said they In-J.
heard of such a bug in South America
which makes its home inceitain plants
and causes the death of any animal
which cats the foliage. None of them
hail heard of the insect in this country.
The physician in chiuge-of tins case
testified that the family was poisoned
"by eating mushrooms," and the ver

John D. Slmnilns of the syndicate
formed to construct an Inter-oceanlo
canal through Nicaragua under the
concession given by the government of
Nlcaigua to Edward Lyre and hdwuru
F. Ci agin, the existence of which was
recently proclaimed by Preslden .aya
la, said that the company to construct
the canal organized under laws of New
Jersey, would proceed to carry out tin
terms of its contract without delay.
The capital needed has been secured
and If the estimate for cost made foil
tills government Is correct the canal,
can be built for the same money, and
nrobablv for less. This estimate is
about 8130,000,000. Mr. Crlmmlns said
that the company would prefer to bate
tlie government leave the. matter In
the company's hands, so as to permit
a private construction and operation
of the canal for tho benefit of the
whole world. The probability is that
route will be that hitherto called the
Nicaragua. Mr. Crlmnilns said:
"Our concession Is perpetual. It
gives us tlie right to police the eiuntry
for ten miles on either side of the
canal, whereas the Maritime company's
concession policing was to be done by
