have their funeral expenses provided for.

Tlio ladies of St. Paul's church are pre

In tlie .store building lately vacated by
Homy Eibeman , on Broadway. The
opening ono will bo Tuesday evening.
There will be refreshments and a nightly
change of programme. The ladies are
working to their utmost to help along the
new church building enterprise , and if
the men of that church were equally as
zealous there wotild be little difliculty in
securing the needed funds for completing
it , and having it free from all debt.
There scorns little being done about
tiie proposed improvement com
pany. That move was in the
right direction , and should not be
allowed to stop until made a success , as it
surely can bo. No enterprise has been
started in this city for years , which gave
assurance of doing so much for the up
building of the city , and every one who
has any business or owns any property
here should take some share in it. If
the men of larger capital do not feel dis
posed to take hold energetically , and sub
scribe liberally , then the men of less
means fchoulil join in more heartily' and
not wait for others. If Council Blulls
will not do anything for itself , it cannot
expect others to come hero and do much
for the city.

the barrel of wheat is being rapidly re

boarding oft" that wheat for weeks , taking
n handtul every time he passes the place.
At this rate it will not uo long before
there will not be enough left to even

There is talk of having the Nonpareil

How Mind Doctors Clmrgc Tor Absent

I'oor All tlio News About f
A Silent Investigation.
Two of the commit tec to investigate
the institution for the deaf and dumb ,
Henresentativcs H\nck : and Tealc , were
in the city jcstordny. Senator Dnrrott
had not arrived. The two members who
were hero seemed disposed to have the
proceedings secret , for the present at
least , and this will probably bo the de
cision reached. It is understood that
there are a number ot nllldavlts In the
hands of the committee , and those mak
ing them will have an opportunity to ap
pear before the committee anil present
their grievances or charges more in de
tail , and be questioned .so far as neces
sary to get at the facts. They will also
bo allowed to produce such corroborative
proofs as they may have to support their
statements. The superintendent , and
others who may in anv way be concerned ,
will have a chance to explain any circum
stances which may look damaging , nnd
thus all concerned will have a free chance
for a full hearing , hut the public at largo
will probably be expected to await the re
sult of the report , with little to satisfy
their curiosity in the meantime. It is to
be hoped that , the investigation will bo
thorough , so that there can bo no chance
for grumbling after the result is reached.
The evening Herald , which has so
zealously cheered on the attacks upon
the institution , now declares that "Super
intendent Hammond has no right to ev-
amine letters written by his pupils. As
wo said in the beginning , the charge that
ho has done so is really the most im-
poitant of any preferred against him ,
because it goes to the root ot the whole
If this is true , then there seems little to
investigate. It is understood by all that
Superintendent Hammond does not deny
that ho cMunjnes the mail of his pupils ,
and that ho .justifies this by the fact that
it is the practice in all such institutions ;
that the institution stands in the relation
of guardian to these pupils , and that for
other reasons which must be apparent on
a moment's reflection , such oversight h
necessary for the good of all concerned.
If all these rumors which have been sent
broadcast , and all the grave charges
hinted at. amount * to nothing more than
what the Herald says , then there is little
to do , the superintendent not denying

Queer Contest in Court.
t''i'n t'in ' suerior
court. The pai ties are residents of Wal
nut , the plaintiff , Jerry Willis , seeking to
enforce tlio payment of two notes ,
amounting to $400 and purporting to bo
signed by Hans Koll , a wealthy farmer.
The defendant claims that the notes
were obtained fraudulently. The history
of the case is about as follows : Two
years ago last summer Hans Koll
gave a dance at his farm house , which by
general invitation his neighbors and a
largo number of people Irom the sur
rounding country attended. Among the
refreshments served were liberal quanti
ties of beer. During the progress of the
dance , when all were more or less under
the influence of the beer , a quarrel arose ,
which ended in a light. Mr. Koll pro
tected his dignity as a host and his house
with considerable vigor , but in tlio row
was seriously injured in the head. The
other parties , who \ycro also
considerably injured considered Far
mer Koll the aggressor and
lodged a complaint against him before a
justice in Walnut. Constable McGimscy
was sent out to execute the warrant , and
found Koll in a bad condition and induced
him to come to town for medical attend
ance rather than as a prisoner. When he
got to the village he was surrounded by a
number of participants in tlio ball who'in-
duccd him to settle the matter by giving
two notes. Those notes were afterward
sold to the plaintifl' in the present suit ,
Jerry Willis , for $400. Now comes Mr.
Koll and swears that he was not conscious
at the time the notes were executed and
did not know what ho was doing when he
signed them. Willis , as an innocent pur
chaser , brings suit to recover.
The case brings a largo number of wit
nesses from Walnut , among whom are Dr.
Hanna , who testifies that Koll was irre
sponsible when he executed the notes ,
Constable McGimsoy , Peter Koll , Henry
Hngge , Charles Voss and Charles Kricli-
son.Mynstcr & Limit are attorneys for the
plaintill' , nnd Jacob Sims represents the

Settling by Skipping Out.
The sudden departure of Mr. J. A. La-
scllo and Mine. Lascllc , as announced in
yesterday's Bun , proved quite a surprise
to many of the merchants who found. still
unbalanced on their ledgers sundry
small amounts charged against them.
The skipping couple had rooms over
Cook & Laudorwasser's store on IJroad
way , and yesterday there were so many
anxious creditors stringing into tlio .store
inquiring for some elue to the where
abouts of the missing ones that patience
was exhausted , there being nothing to
reply mil tlio stereotyped "don't know. "
It was reported that they had gone to
Omaha , it seeming that they must have
gone on the midnight .lummy across the
river , as that was tlio only train on which
they could have made their departure.
Some thought they had perhaps settled
there under some ether distinguished
name , but there was nothing learned to
support any of tlienu theories. It is not
thought that they could have got away
with any great sum of money. On the last
evening they were seen here the Madame
went into a millinery store and got a fine
bonnet on credit , Shoo bills , grocery
bills , meat bills , etc. , came pouring in ,
and several of the bars of the city are
said to have the young man's name upon
their books , Blons. LaSelle is a young
man who impresses ono witli the idea
that ho thinks ; there is nothing quite
good enough for him and his , and liisfino
appearance and mnokarUtouraoy , caused
many to give him credit who would have
refused It to worthier men with less style
"Absent Treatment. "
"I'll ' toll yon a good thing whinh these
mind doctors have hit upon , " remarked
ono of the old school doctors. They
charge for absent treatments. "
"Absent treatments , what aio they ? "
"Why , you know the , mind doctor can
s\t \ down in her ollico or at homo and
treat a patient by bringing some mental
power to Jieur on them some way , at least
that is what they say. There is a lady ,
whopi I heard of the other day. She
was called on by the mind doctor , who
gave her u treatment. Aftersitting there
by her for a while the doctor rose to
leave. The ludy.handed. . her $3 for the
treatment , when the mlml doctor spoke
up nnd says , 'K\euse me , but since I saw
you last Iliad a little time and gave yon
three different treatments. They are a
dollar each. That makes ? : > in all. ' The
patient paid it. When I heard of it I
Just made up my mind that if one doctor
could charge for absent treatments
another could. The next time anybody
calls mo up in the night by telephone !
nm just going to roll back into bed and
charge them lor an absent treatment.
Up spoke then a brisk litllo Hotel
"I have heard of the e absent treat
ments before , and 1 tell you how 1 got
oven with one of the mind doctors. My
sister was treated by ono of them and had
to pay for absent treatments , about $0 , so
I was bound to got even. Ono day a
mind doctor came to the hotel for dinner.
After dinner she handed mo fifty cents ,
but I told her there was a mistake. Her
bill Was $0.50. She looked surprised and
demanded to know how that could bo. I
then told her that there was $0 charged
for absent meals. She looked rather
queer , and rather than have any fuss
about it I let her settle for the dinner and
leave the other account standing.
Work I'or the I'oor.
The Woman's Christian association will
re-open an industrial school on Saturday
afternoon at 2 o'clock , in the vacant
house owned by Blr. E. L. Shugart , just
west of his residence , tlio it o of which is
kindly donated by him for this purpose.
This school is for the benelit of tlio chil
dren of the poor In our citv , nnd girls
from 8 years old and upward are Invited
Hero will be taught plain sowing of all
kinds , mending , cutting and making of
garments which , when completed , will
become the property of those who make
them , the material being 'donated.
The school will bo under the direction
of Blrs. Mattie Gnylard. with Mrs. C. 11.
Allen for secretary. Hoth of these
ladies have experience in this
work , and will bo further assisted
by older ladies of tlio association. To
teach industry is the best way of helping
the poor , many of whom are wefully ig
norant of the various arts of housewifery
and many more are on natural principles
opposed to working unless absolutely ne
cessary. Wholesale charity , such as the
kindhearted people of this city have in
dulged in so extensively this winter , puts
a premium on pauperism and largely in
creases the number of paupers. 'Experi
ence and observation both tcaeli that the
only way to do permanent good is to
give them work and teach them to do it
We who have comfortable homes , got
ten through our industry and economy ,
both of which elements of character are
greatly lacking among tlio very jioor ,
have not rested for the cold of winter
nor the heat of summer as so
many of those do whose necessities
we are daily relieving ; we may give and
give again till nothing is left and still the
problem is unsolved , the burden lias in
creased on our hands. The ladies of the
W.C. A. hope by the co-operation of
others of the city to make this a per
manent institution , anil that its proportions
tions and usefujness may increase and bo
the basis of an industrial work , such as is
carried on so largely in some of the
Bins. P. J. AIoNTQOArnnr ,

Ingredients or Oleomargarine.
Philadelphia Record : The dairymen
are gradually bringing their contention
against the makers of oleomargarine up
on tenable ground , whore they may ex
pect the support of both the legislative
nnd judicial authority. Exhaustive
chemical investigations tend to show
that while it may be possible to make
oleomargarine which would not bean im-
healthful food , as a niatter of fact no
such oleomargarine is made. Indigesti
ble , insoluble , and oven putrcscent sub
stances are employed in the patent pro
cess of manufacture , among which may
be enumerated sugar of lead , bi-sulpliatc
of lime , saltpeter , borax , bo-
racic acid , salicylic acid , ben-
coic acid , orris root , cotton-seed
oil , vegetable oils , bitarie acid ,
bicarbonate of soda , nitrate of potassia ,
glycerine , capeylic acid , cuparie acid ,
alum , capcic aoicl , sulphate of soda ,
cows' udders , commercial sulphuric acid ,
farinaceous flour , butyric ether , caustic
potash , carbonic acid , sulphuric acid ,
castor oil , curcumino , chalk , slippery
elm bark , caul , oil of sesame , oil 01 sun
flower seeds , olive oil , turnip seed oil ,
broma ehloralum , chlorate of potash ,
niter , oil of sweet almonds , oil of peanuts ,
peroxide of manganese , stomach of pigs ,
sheep or calf , nitrate of soda , bcnnie oil ,
gastric juice , mustard seed oil , nitric
acid , dry blood , albumen , sugar , butyric
acid , bicarbonate of potash , chloride ot
sodium , caustic soda , corn starch and
various coloring matters. These things
are well enough in their way ,
but not to spread on one's bread. If
oleomargarine , as has heretofore been
stoutly maintained , were a wholesome
substitute for butter , the attempt to pro
hibit its manufaeliiro would bo an Inva
sion of private right without justifica
tion. Hut the proof of its deleterious
quality ami the diflieulty in preventing
its sale as butter , in consequence of the
elose imitation of tlio spurious to the gen
uine article , warrant legeslative restric
tion both as to the homo and export
trade. Both butter-makers and butter-
eaters are entitled to protection against
counterfeit butter. If chemical analysis
throws oleomargorino out of the list of
proper foods , there is no longer a war
rant for nermitling its sale for the only
use which it subserves.
Books Bound in Human SkiiiN.
Pull Mall Ga/ette : Following the example -
ample of Blr. Joseph Xiychusdprf , who
lately bound two El/.evir editions in
human skin , another London binder has
executed , an order to incase a copy of
Hans Holbein's "Dance of Death" in the
same ghastly integument , certainly a
very appropriate covering for this work.
These are not the only instances , however -
over , in which tlio casing of "human
form divine" has been utilized. In the
library at Mexborough house , near Moth-
ley. Yorkshire , there were formerly two
books , Sir John Cheek's "Hurt ot Scdi-
lion" and Braithwaito's "Arcadian Prin
cess , " both bound in the prepared skin of
Blary Bateman , "tho Yorkshire witch , "
who was executed early in tlio beginning
of this century for murder : but these
were among those which disappeared
during the cataloguing of the library for
rale , when one of the former earls of
Blexborongh was in difliculties , Yet
another instance. When the writer was
last in Pans he was shown a small book
by a dealer , who solemnly avowed it wus
bound in a portion of the skin of the no
torious Lotivet do Couvray , and which lie
valued at lOOOf. , and for authentication
of which ho produced a long pedigree ,
Tlio Homo Billiard Table.
February Outing : The billiard table
in the home needs no advocate , for few
homes of pretensions are without ono at
this day ; but billiards as n gam < fitc > il *
in the homo sadly needs Vrte "support of
many champions > . * '
The game ot \ ' \ ards iifit is played at
the present day is perhaps not so well
adapted to the hopio as the old English
game of a score ot j'ears ago. Particu
larly has it fallen into disuse as a lady's
game. This ought not to bo so , for of all
royal g.unes , of all games requiring tlio
combination of a correct eye ,
a steady hand , a think
ing head , billiards possesses the
greatest fascination for tlioso who pursue
it far ciiougli to acquire a moderate de
gree of skill , aim insight into its possi
bilities. As an in-door game it has no
superior. ' 1 ho c\ercio which it cive ,
while not in the least \iok-nt , is auim'r-
able in its character and scope , for a
great range of nuuclus is brought into
It is altogether probable though I
throw this out as fr < ) m ono entirely un
versed in the intricacies of the subject
that modern methods of fashionable
female dre s preclude that freedom of
movement which would enable n woman
to play the ganio without constant use
of a bridge , but does this necessarily con
demn the game for women ? Just
as there arc now tennis cos
tumes , nnd pedestrian costume * , and
tricycle costumes , for ladies , why do they
not adopt a billiard costume , and assume
their proper place in the home billiard
room ? Of course there are exceptions to
all rules , and , just as 1 have seen women
who were fine liflo shots and good swim
mers , and excellent bowlers , so have 1 ,
once in a great while , seen a woman who
could hold her own with lie ' husband at
nn after-dinner game of billiards , nnd
my experience in such cases has been 1
tell it for those who are afraid of making
guys of themselves that I have never
seen n cue handled as charmingly and
have never seen the graceful curves of
the female form appear to such striking
advantage as in such games.
Young women , learn tliegame of bill
iards , and learn it well ! It will repay
you a thousand times for your trouble by
its charm ; and who knows but that some
day the skill which yon acquire will keep
a restless husband from his elub when
fireside and music will have failed. ?

of New York newsboys to a clergyman
who asked them : "What is the most
