Telia irer Countrymen How to Vote
and Aid9 Them When in Trouble
The Italians of Chicago have a
queen Her casUe is a weather
beaten house of faded brick hung
about with vines and creeping flowers
and is located In the dust and smoke
and turmoil of Pacific avenue the
heart of the Italian colony
Annie Carlo is lie queens real
name She is young just nearlng 20
She has the smooth oily black hair so
typical of the Italian woman which
she plaits in tiny braids and pins close
to her head The eyes are large and
clear and at times animated and
sparkling To say that her complexion
is dazzling is using an adjective both
inadequate and Incomplete It is Ideal
-a creamy white of velvety softness
touched faintly on either cheek with
mm f
just a dash of crimson She dresses
passably well and has an air of su
perior knowing Some idea of her
power is derived from the following
statement she recently made to a Chi
cago reporter
A ah yes they call me queen of
Italians she said I know them all
here on Pacific avenue North Side
West Side everywhere They come to
me morning night all times To day
go with man who buy fruit stand I
see he is not cheated I sign leases I
tell him what to do To morrow I go
to court Some Italian man fights I
5ign bond and be his lawyer The
fudge the bailiff the the the clerk
hey all know me I rent houses five
six seven here on Pacific avenue I
agent for Mrs
Bagleys tenements I keep grocery
1 keep saloon no that not place for
ne 1 busy busy all the time I get up
oniethues 4 oclock i go to bed at 12
Always so much to do The people
ome I get them Avork I go with
5irls to candy factories I find them
places I get men work I know the
Dosses IIundretLs men I get work for
When man loses job he comes to me
find place for him
And do they pay you for that
vas asked
No no Only sometimes I not want
pay I glad always to help my people
1 It is said that you have a wide in
fluence with the Italian voters was
Yes that so she answered
They ask me how to vote The men
hey know not how to vote They can
not read they cannot write I tell
A Hue Freiuht Bill
I do not know that many are aware
that the annual freight bill of this
country amounts to more than S00
000000 a year It is a tax and the
most burdensome tax winch this coun
try knows upon our industries and
upon production Its meaning brought
home is that each family in the United
States pays on the average 00 a year
for freight alone If Commissioner
Wrights statistics are correct that
the average income of each laborer in
this country is not more than 500 a
year then each head of a family must
set aside on the average the results
of a month and a half of toil to pay his
share of the freight
The people of the West have learned
this economic lesson well They have
seen their wheat carried over the great
lakes at an average charge of less than
1 iu11 per ton per mile when the rail
road rate from their farms to lake
transportation or to market was from
1 centto IV centsperton per mile They
know that if all the freight in the Uni
ted States could be carried as cheaply
as is wheat from Duluth to Buffalo this
burden would be cut down to one tenth
of what it now is
Such considerations as these ought
to make it plain even to a wayfarer
or a Congressman that the freight
question is worth a little attention
lie view of Reviews
French Array Discipline
Discipline is evidently a factor in the
French army as two incidents which
have just occurred during a single sit
ting of a court martial at Tunis go to
prove A soldier belonging to one of
the African battalions brought up on
a charge of disobedience when asked
what he had to say in his defense
shouted You are a lot of swine and
drinkers of blood and was promptly
sentenced to ten years hard labor The
man who was introduced after him was
accused of a similar offense and the
usual questions with i view to estab
lishing his identity had scarcely been
addressed to him when he tore a but
ton off his tunic and flung It at the
face of the president For this offense
he was condemned to death Boston
A Curions Pocket Piece
A Union Pacific engineer has a fash
ion of making unique pocket pieces for
his friends He runs a passenger en
gine west says the Tacoma Ledger
and when oiling previous to a vun he
drops a nickel five cent piece into the
brass oil cup on the crosshead of the
piston rod His run is 3C0 miles When
lie reaches his destination he unscrews
the top of the oil cup and takes the
nickel out It has been metamorphosed
into a curious little button with an
evenly turned rim within which on
the one side Is the countersunk head
of Liberty divested of her stars and
on the other side the V and the wreath
The edge of the crown Is as perfect as
If it had been pounded on an anvil by
an expert silversmith
The perfection of tills Is due to the
even vibration the coin has been sub
jected to The motion of the piston Is
horizontal and It travels forty eight
Inches back and forth with every rev
olution of the wheels The interior of
the oil cup is round and the edges of
the nickel as it travels back and forth
In the oil striking the sides of the cup
are turned over and pounded into per
fect roundness Sometimes a nickel is
left In the cup during the round trip
or COO miles When taken out it is a
nickel bullet a perfect polished sphere
Who discovered this unique method of
turning the edges of a nickel is not
known but many eugineers know of it
How Hojjana Plan for His Buria7
Here lies the body of Martin Ko
gan reads an Inscription on a curi
ous old tomb in the Catholic cemetery
on State street Auburn Through a
hole near the bars of the shaft one
may view the interior which contains
a heavy worm eaten casket empty
except for a grave diggers spade and
a collection of old whisky bottles The
body of Martin Hogan is not visible
nor any part of its remains Instead
they occupy a very humble grave in
another part of the old cemetery Mar
tic Ilogan was the first instructor of
the Catholic children of Auburn long
before the parochial schools jvere in
troduced He was prominent in his
church and in his profession and as he
grew old the desire for a magnificent
and splendid tomb became his great
passion The last years of his life were
spent in preparations for this end He
visited the marble dealers in the large
cities but could find nothing to suit
his purpose so he constructed a shaft
of masonry covered with sheet iron
and finished in white Heavy marble
slabs were set in each side and one of
them opened into a compartment large
enough to receive the massive oaken
box which Hogan had placd in readi
ness for his casket His uame was in
scribed on every side of the tomb and
that opening into his compartment
bore the legend quoted at the begin-
ning Martin took great pride in his
arrangements planting rose trees and
flowering bushes all about the monu
ment ne spent hours at the place
and his mind was satisfied with the
contemplation of his last resting place
When the old school master died the
parish made a vigorous protest against
placing his body in the tomb because
it was above ground and to the great
disappointment of his family his re
mains were buried under six feet of
earth in another part of the graveyard
and the old tomb with its moulder
ing coffin and pathetically ironical in
scription remains as Hogan left it fifty
3ears ago serving only as a tool houso
for the workmen
Mininjr Tor Heat
A man in Pennsylvania is trying to
make the deepest hole in the world
He has now bored to a depth of G000
feet and the machine continues to
delve doeper every day Before fall
the bottom of the drill will have reach
ed a depth of over 10000 feet or near
ly two miles The work is under the
supervision of Prof William Hallock
of Columbia College and it is being
done for a very strange purpose Deep
holes are usually bored for water or
for gas or oil and sometimes to pros
pect for minerals of various kinds but
Prof Hallock is mining for heat As
every one knows the interior of the
earth is a burning fiery furnace and it
is Prof Hallocks theory that if he can
make a hole deep enough he can ob
tain a constant flow of steam which
can be utilized for operating machin
ery Already Prof Hallocks hole
which is being bored near the city of
Pittsburg is the deepest in the world
The next deepest is a salt well near
Deipsic in Germany which measures
5740 feet in depth It will be inter
esting to watcli this wonderful experi
ment If it is successful the time may
come when manufacturers will get all
their power from the boundless fur
naces at the center of the earth when
our cities will be lighted from the
same source our houses heated and
our railroads street ctirs and steam
ships operated from the same source
Flowers Answered Both Purposes
A certain young widow of Indianap
olis who had just changed her weeds
for brighter hues gave a dinner party
not long ago The rooms were decor
ated with a great profusion of flow
ers Roses in masses were on the man
tels and the dinner table fairly blos
somedin fact the abundance of flow
ers was unusual One of the guests
could restrain her curiosity no longer
and when the dessert was brought in
said Well Mrs BLnuk youre rather
spreading on the flowers to night
Yes replied the fair widow brightly
but to morrow I am going to take
them out to Crown Hill and put then
on poor Toms grave

Vegetarians Pound a Hospital
Vegetarianism has taken a stand in
England which entitles it to respect
from people who are not entire believ
ers in the doctrine The restaurants
of the vegetarians are clean and they
provide a menu of reasonable variety
One of the latest steps in the line of
the work has been the founding of a
vegetarian hospital which a writer in
the London Daily Chronicle describes
It was started in 1S93 though little
was said about it at the time as the
founders aid not wish to advertise it
until they were sure of its becoming
successful It was to be for nonvege
tarians it being understood that vege
tarians are never ill Consequently
there was some prejudice to overcome
It was also thought that there might
be difficulty in putting an invalid ac
customed to eating meat suddenly up
on a yetable diet But no trouble
was found patients did as well a
could be desired and the result has
been altogether very satisfactory The
hospital authorities believe that the
general increase of cancer is due o ex
cess in meat eating Pine baths and
massage treatment with plenty of
fresh air are included in the hospitaj

her stay at Gressony in the Italian

Figaro ner majesty is very popular
in the mountain villages and whenever
she enters one is variably received with
flowers and enthusiastic signs of devo
There Is very little doubt that the
tendency to embonpoint which so dis

fondness for Italian cookery with Its
oil spices and pastry She is especially
fond of cakes fried in oil spaghetti

called it He -was always taking soda bath3 with wheat bran in the water
and fussing with cuticura soaps ointments and resolvents Ho used to be
scratching whenever he thought himself unobserved sometimes his
skin was red or raw and a little drop of water would exude in places now and
then AH at once I noticed that he had seemed to be free from ths annoyance
for somo time and knowing that he had battled with it persistently for two or
three years I asked him what remedy had finally brought about a result so
desirable and he told me Eipans Tabnles
But Eipans Tabules are merely a cure for indigestion said L
1 know that ho answered but the doctors all agree that eczema is
one of the ways that indigestion manifests itself
Our neighbor Hoody is his name takes one Tabula every night of hi3 life
