"Toll him I hnvo no report for Tun HER. " "Do you know Lena Lewis ! " was the in terrogation propounded before the good lady could shut the door. "I don't want anything said about the matter , and hnvo nothing to say , " was the response. "Uut what matter ! I merely asked If you know Lena Lowis. " "Oh , I know , but you will confer n favor on ma by not saying anything auout us , " and bang wont the door. The domestic was the next one to bo ques tioned. "Lo ) you know Lena Lowisl" was asked.

CallnKhnn , D. D. , rector of St. Cecilia's church , Walnut Hill , delivered n lecture In the church of the Holy l > mlly , corner of Eighteenth nnd Iznrd , on "SU Ignatius nnil the Company of Jesus" before a large nnd evidently n very npprccln- tivo congregation. The rovorcnd lecturer bcjan by giving n graphic description of the struggles and trials of cjiristlnnlty in the flrst century of Its existence. "Nineteen hundred years npo , " said the lecturer , "there came n sound from heaven of strange , mystical melody , a sound com * pared with which oven ttio muslu of nngoU , prostrated heforo the throne of God , Is as nothing ; a sound throbbing with the spirit of God , and It came to brood over the church. From that moment there appeared In the history of the world a new race of heroes. The name of Jesus rose nbovo the \vrcclt of Homan paganism. "Outof that dlvlno name and the dlvlno truth which It rovers two organisms were horn , ono dlvlno In Its life , and , through that divine organism cauio ncallng for every wounded soul. It was not n divine organism established to create material com fort or to widen the means of material happiness. Wo do not rend In the commis sion of the apostles that they wcro ever sent to build n railroad from Joppa to Jerusalem. Hut Its mission was to nmko men worthy citizens ot heaven. No\v , akin to that flrstorganism Is another sprung Irom Its life , receiving all its form , Us shape , Its color , Its literature , Its art , 1U science , solely from the dlvlno power of the nomu of .Jesus and from the divine organism , nnd thiit is the Catholic church , the organism of tha living God , Ono was an eternal society , the other was its earthly counterpart. * Thu world ac cepted the name of Jesus ns the shibboleth of salvation , and In return there was horn of that name n Christian common wealth. All Europe , the world accepted thu divinity of .Icsus Christ. H was a p.iciin of Joy for till the Ills that flesh is air to. What was the work upon society wrought , for llftccn centuries lu tlio name of Jesus I It took the pngnn law nntl It stripped that law of its despotism and It clothed It with the etmrity of Jesus. As Emerson hits well said , 'The principles of the Cathuilu faith und the doctrines of tlio Catholic church , teaching a dlvlno legislator ruling all , was the proclama tion of the flrst principles of democracy that found n home. ' It took the poor and In the namu of Jesus It clothed them with the purple of Its divinity , und It told the rich in n clear , emphatic , never wavering voice that the poor had n right to u portion of the wealth of which God had made them the custodians. It wipea out the badge of degrcdatlon from poverty nnd the stamp of servility from the brow of the workincmnn. It clothed both with dignity and it preached divine ciiuallty In the name of Jesus. It silenced with Its volco of truth the errors of humanity as It silenced , with love , the long , unnbatod cry of the poor. It broke the fet ters of Ignornnco with its wisdom us it broke with its love the fetters of the slave. It took the lost of mankind , the pariah , ono of the pro letariat and it put upon his brow the U lad cm heforo whom kings bow ; the diadem of the liguro of Christ giving to him the power of the name and all the authority of the divin ity of Christ. It leveled all castes. Thcro was neither Greek nor Gentile. The work of Jesus was twofold in its character , bless ings upon the individual nnd benedictions without number on the community. " 13ut there came u sad hour , the most do- plorabio iu the history of the world since pa ganism went down with its rottinc garments , an hour when supernatural authority was dcniPd In the world. " The speaker then dwelt upon the rise and progress of the reformation , Introducing in Ills reference the statement that God sought for u man to rebuild the bulwarks of Chris tian faith , to rokmdlo tlio ( lame of learning and to organize a band of heroes who would stem the tide of heresy nnd open up new lands and now Holds of labor. That man was found in Ignatius Loyola , and that serried phalanx was found la tlio company of Jesus. Speaking of St. Ignatius , ho said : "Iteared in luxury , nurtured in indolence , fondled in a court , bred to the science of arms , it seemed n pgor beginning for a saint four elements out of which Vo shnpo n Christian hero. Hut God saw in the calm , cold intel lect of St. Ignatius , joined to that magnetic power over the uUcctlons of men , a leader who would nguin 1111 the weak places of earth with the llrcs of virtue , who would again lift up the human mind in its soaring after knowledge. Iln found one who would not only leave his mark on earth , but ivould leave the stamp of divinity on his own brow , nnd his name as nn heirloom for generations of hi * company until tlio end ot time.

Chicnpro Times : Knpineor Dim- . mick , of the Chicago express , said ho hud boon in nervous dread of nn accident from the moment he pulled out of the Ltvlfo Shore depot in Chicago , writes William II. Manor in the Toledo Blade. This had mndo him unusually careful , but aa ho reached Sherman's crossing , n little behind time , ho began to'loso his fear : ho opened the throttle of ol'd 90 , intoiuUnp to gain a few minutes in the remaining eight miles between there nnd Toledo. IIo started to siirnnl for the crossing , just this side of the trees , when , horror ! no saw a farmer drive furiously towuud it as if to cross ahead of the ttain. It was suicide ! Dimmiek sent out ti heart-breaking signal to the hrakoman , reversed the engine , put on air-brakes , knowing all the time the train could not bo stopped this side of the crossing , and then shut his eyes and prayed. When the onirino stopped n part of the wagon was -on the headlight , the horses were distributed along the truck , and two old people were lying near the fence. Dimmiek was the first to reach them. They both breathed. Was there n , phys ician among the passengers ? Yes , two. A hurried examination and consulta tion. The man was undoubtedly fatally hurt ; the woman probably bo. They were tenderly carried to Mr. Richards' house near by and the physi cians were told that if they would stay until the local practioner wtia found a locomotive would bo sent back for them in an hour. They agreed to stay. The bell rang ; travelers hurried to their places ; some- with white faces at the thought that it might have been them selves ; others full of the importance a participation in the event would give them and their story , and others , for getting themselves , thinking only of the sorrow brought to others. Mr. Richards placed his house at the command of the physicians. Stimulants were administered nnd when the fami ly doctor and the children of the sulTer- ' c'rs had arrived the father was moaning , but the mother had opened her eyes. Late in the nigh * , , after hours of faithful and incessant labor over them , the mother spoke. "How is father ? " ' 'Ho is still unconscious , but is well taken care of. Hero is something for you : now don't worry ; don't think ; just go to sleep again. " Her son spoke to her. her.'f must go to fattier. " "You mustn't think of it , mother. You are very badly hurt yourself. You must bo very quiet. " "I must goto father , ho needs mo. " The physician looked at her keenly , saying , in a low tpno , to the son : ' 'I think wo had better lix a place for her near him. She will never bo contented otherwise. " The son coaxed nnd argued with her. but it was of no avail. They moved her bed bortide her husband's ; she attempt ed to take his hand , but could not. His stuntorlous breathing seemed to malone no impression upon hor. "Is father going to die ? " she nskcd. The weeping daughter nodded. "You must keep quiet for your own sake , mother. " "Wo'vo been married over forty-eight years , ' ' she said to the doctor , "but wo'vo known each other all our lives. " "You mustn't ' talk , mother. " "Wo was raised side by side ; ho took care 'on mo whan wo wont to school to gether ; ho always took care on mo. Put mo on my Hide moro , BO'S I can see him bolter. " "Mother , you must stop thinking and talking. " She paid no hoed. "Seems 's if Uwan't hut : v little while ngo since we was married ; but it's ever forty-eight year. Wo was talkiti' of our golden weddin' this very week , lien ! " The son put his hand on her lips to silence her , but the doctor whispered : "Bettor lot her talk a littlo. She's be yond control. " The gray-hairod husband loomed to hear her call ; ho opened his eyes , breathed loss noisily , struggled with his voice , and then manuged to whisper : "Rachel. " "Hero I am , Benjamin , " and turning her eyes to her daughter , "put my bund in his. " They laid her poor .vrinklod hand on his hard , knotty iingeru. "Is it morning , Rachel. " "No , it ain't ; you just llo still. You BOO , " said she , turning her eyes to the others , "ho thinks it's tlmo to got up. " "Rachel ! " In a very low whisper it came.

General Operations Itiillnc Moderate Increased KxportiitloitN of Iron No Now Kent urea In Groceries. The IlusincHs World. " HOSTON , Oct. 27. The general tone of the Iron market continues firm , with the tend ency still upward. The feature of the mar ket has been the exportation of pig iron , sev eral transactions In this respect being re ported during the past week. Now York re ports say that the Thomas iron company has made n sale of GOO tons of pig Iron for export to Mexico , the shipment of which is already under way. The same company has been ne gotiating for the sale of 1,000 tons in Eng land , anil , It Is said , would hare succeeded ere this but for Inability to sccuro freight ac commodation on the regular Una steamers. Several lots of Ohio pig are said to have been sold In Canada in competition with Scotch Iron. The general outlook Is stronger , the homo demand for both foundry and , mill pig ruling active , revealing mixioty on the part of many consumers to have orders booked' now that a general advance m prices , to tnko effect next month , is found to bo a certainty. Sellers who have n first-class article to deliver within the next seventy days arc very Indifferent mid refusing to sell at less than $18 for No. 1 X , J17 for No. 2 X , or $10 for grey forgo. Some southern brands are quoted at 00cgf ( 1 under these prices , but the makes that consumers seem content to take are extremely difficult to obtain for de livery this .vcur , and the Kinds that are of fered at the bottom figures quoted nro mainly these ttint nro taken only when buyers hnvo no alternative than to put up with that clasH of Iron. Sotno contracts have been made for certain of the most popular brands for 1&90 delivery at the udvanccd prices. Dealers hero say Una the demand for pig iron is much better now than it has been be fore this year. Most of the loading makes of Ohio iron nro now practically out of the market , furnace men having no moro to sell. Offerings of Pennsylvania grades are also light nnd buyers can only pick up limited quantities. Dealers say thut not only do thpy have trouble in buying supplies , but they also And it dinicult to get their former purchases delivered. The fur naces are busy , and notwithstanding the fact thut the output this year will bo the largest over known , It now looks as though this largo production would ' bo completely absorbed. The fact that' the competition with Scotch iron is now dono'awuy with , owing to the high prices ruling abroad , makes the demand for American iron so much greater , while the fact that an outlet for our iron abroad Is opening up makes the outlook so much moro fuvprublo. Bar iron is still meeting 'with a quiet de mand , although the strong tone nnd higher prices asited at the producing centres of the west causes values to bo Iicld firm. The machine shops arc busy and nro using con siderable iron , but no ono has yet attempted to go In very heavy in their purchases. The market is In such u dcllcata position at pres ent that a largo order would undauntedly start prices up very materially , but in the quiet ways that buyers tu-s , operating , they arc able to get supplies at .lout week's rates. Swedish iron is llrm , and with conditions showing still moro strength abroad , the out look is for a still further advance in values hero. Dealers only quote on spec-mentions now , no open quotations being givcu. Steam piping and plumbing supplies generally are in a linn position with the mills well sup plied with orders. Boiler tubes also hold steady. All branches of the steel market are firm , nnd eastern buyers have to pay higher rates on sonio grades than even a wock ago. Now York reports say that the stool trade , while not dlsulaylng quito the degree of excite ment that prevailed last week , is still active nnd pricesjire very strong all along the lino. Some contracts for moderate quantities of rails have been closed at * 32 f. o. b. ut east ern mills , .but larco buyers seem rather hesi tant about closing , although having options on round lots , despite the representations of manufacturers regarding the extent to which the capacity of the mills is under the control of orders and the oxtroma high cost of crude materials generally. In the Pitts- burg market billets and slabs are up to $34 (335. ( wire rods to $ ! 0 and other productions relatively as high , whilst prices at mills in other localities employed on these commod ities are of corresponding level. Tank plates nro quoted higher from the mills and the general situation for both steel and iron paltcs is stronger. Sheet iron holds firm and sales are active at full prices. Blacksmiths' supplies nro steady. Old rails are still in a nominal condition , with no transactions reported. There is a fair quantity of rails hold bv several of the eastern roads , but the views of buyers and sellers are still too far apart to result in any business. The roads nominally ask ? 25 , while with bar Iron at its present prlco mill- men are not bidding above $23.50. Old scrap iron is quiet , but the mills are picking up lots from tlmo to time , with prices ranging as to quality. The nail markqjt continues llrm with the tendency towards a still further advance. The high price of wire nails makes tlitvout- lijok for cut nails more favorable , and ttio trade look for a creator share of the demand for the latter. The low prices which were forced by the heavy competition of the past two years , have now disappeared , owing to the advance in erudo material , but oven at the advance which has already been mudo in nails , the cost of production is not covered. The trade feel thut it is high tlmo that a living profit was obtained by nail manufac turers , and so anticipate a still further ad- van CO. The copper market is steady with a largo movement reported. This season of the year Is the ono when copper is most freely used , and the prlco for this metal Is on a sufll- cicntly low basis to induce a free use of the material. Tin is quiet and steady , but tin places are active , and prices have been still lurtber advanced in sympathy with the higher prices abroad. Lead is quint nnd a shada easier , with no change In spelter and zinc. zinc.The The dry goods nmrket holds in a steady position , with the volume of business fair. The call from Jobbers fAots up fairly liberal for the season , and considering the frco sell ing which was done bv them in August and September , rutailors arq meeting with a good distributing business , uu'd conditions are favorable for a steady fall .business. Cotton goods hold steady wlti } agents , with snrna makes of both brown , mid blcunhod goods well sold ahead. Colored cottons reuiuiu quiet and steady , while cotton flannels arc being freely taken from Jobbers , with manu facturers also busy lu/lclivory of former orders. Prints continue quiet , although specialties in wide goods jyot move well and hold steady. Giughumi are In liuht demand. Dress goods are steady 'and Jobbers uro still receiving orders fram day to day for seasonable styles. Vfltfi manufacturers business Is slow , the soa'soc bning well over so faros fall goods are popcorncd. Foreign dress goods nro firm , w.b'llu silks and velvets nlbo show moro strength. Flannels are quiet with manufacturers , but Jobbers are still selling fair lines. Blankets also meet with a good demand , witli values steady , Casslmorcs continue quiet but steady , while worsteds are moving fairly in the delivery of former orders. Overcoatings hold quiet but steady. In teas the market Is quiet with no partic ularly new features to note. Desirable grades of teas are meeting with a steady call and hold llrm In price , the stock of nucb beIng - Ing in no way excessive. China reports still confirm llrat advices that the choice grades are in small supply there. The feutura of the market has been the stronger tone to Congo tens in the English markets. Tncso teas have ruled dull and low. out It looks now that a turn in the market had bucu reached that would affect the situation oa this side. Low grade teas are generally dull with no change to note In prices. In coftet business tins been quiet with no new features to uolo In the general situation. Uuyers are operating , as they happen to be lu need of supplies , but no apeculatlvo fad ing Is noticeable , and butlltUodispjsltion to stock up U shown. The growing crop In Uraill olds fair to bo much larger than lat .Year , but reports ns to Its condition arc still contradictory. General quotations nro unchanged - changed from a week ago , The market lor cloves It caver , with Zan zibar lots Ic lower to sell. Other ppcclcs are quiet and steady.

In the course of n short in terview ho commented upon the money mar ket there nnd said that bankers whom hemet met , including the bend of ono of the largest national banks there as well as the members of the firm of Kountzo Bros. , wcro Inclined to the opinion that money would bo fairly easy during the ensuing fall and winter. Ho said that legitimate demands from parties In Whom bankers had conlldunco would bo freely mot. Some of the Now York bankers have been loaning heavily on cotton nnd other southern products which ai-o on their way to market nnd the loans nro now being returned , so that money is caster there. Mr. Kountyo does not think there will bo any undue strlncciic.v this fall and winter , though there will DO , ho thinks , loss disposition than over by bankers to buck BChomos whether wildcat building or what not. Commenting upon nn article which ap peared In the Omaha World-Herald of Fri day last , In which it was editorially stated that the rullnir rate of Interest charged by the banks to the merchants of Omaha was 10 per cent , In ndvanco. .Mr. Kount7e , after reading un article In the commercial column of TIIU SUNDA.V linn , endorsed the latter as eiving the situation correctly. Ho in cidentally remarked that but few sound nnd solvent concerns paid over 8 per cent to Omaha banks for money nnd that favors were very liberal in amount. Ho Instanced a case whore jobbers here had been accommodated with loans In amount in excess of tholr whole capital. "It is a re flection upon the traders of the city to pub lish as facts the wild assertions contained In the World-Herald's article , " ho saiJ , "wiien soven-olghttis of the merchants of Oamhu can contradict them irom their own knowl edge and experience. " "Tho ruling rate to sound merchants for bank loans In Omaha Is 8 per cent the year round , and when mouoy is plentiful 7 per cent. This is cheaper money tnaii 0 per cent in Chicago or Now York , and the demand is certain to bo met when the uionoy is wanted. There Is nothing in existence that will equal Salvation Oil m curing pain in the joints or muscles , or spinal affections. 1'rico 25 cents. A preacher , who had boon annoyed by the Incessant "hacking" of members of Ills con gregation , recommended such to try Dr. Bull's Cough Syruh. Afore rtnilroails to the Frontier. General GbroutcliolT , the chief of the gonorul stivtr of the Russian nriny , sub- inittcd to the czar last summer a report urging that a second line of rail bo laid to tlioyostorn frontier. In spite of the opposition of the minister of tlnnnco the proposal is being carried out. Eight million loads of rails and 300 locomo tives have been ordered for delivery in May. This measure completes the strategic network of Russian railwi.vs , increasintr their capacity to mass troops on the German frontier. How to Cure ft Colil. Many years constant use and the ex perience of thousands of persons of all ages , has fully demonstrated that there is nothing bettor for n severe cold than Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It acts in perfect harmony with nature , re lieves the lungs , liquefies the tough tenacious mucus , ranking it easier to expectorate , and restores the system to u strong and healthy condition. Incongruous Architecture. Every stranger in Washington is much astonished to see the way in which the shanties of the poor blacks are mixed in with the handsome resi dences of the fashionnblo quarter. Ono colored family sold its shanty and small piece of land in the most valuable dia- rictonly last week for $05,000. Taken UnawnrcH. Unsimpected causes for malaria exist every where.

A Manufacture o | ' Co There ni-o ( our establishments in this country dov6tcd exclusively to the man ufacture of cowbells , two being in Ool- Hnsvillo , 111. , Kays the LMtlsburg Dis patch. Ono hundred , anil llfty do/.on are turned out dally , nnd thousands of thorn dangle from the necks of cows all over the prairies of North and South America. The manufacture of cowbells - bolls is entirely tlllTorant from that of other bolls. Instead of being molded the niotnl is rolled into shoots , cut into symmetrical polygons , which , whou fold ml , nro pressed Into their well- known form , After bolug riveted tlioy nro phnkod in clay nnd brought to a whlto hont. When suddenly cooled thcso stool bolls are found to bo not only tempered , but beautifully bronzed , llnllrond Tlcnof Mahogany.

It may seem strnngo , but it is the plain truth for miles nud mllas through this country tHe Monterey fc Gulf railway will use mahogany Uu , and the ttmbnr used in the construction of the bridges will bo of the sumo material , and often ebony will bo used. Vast forests of these precious woods cxtond for miles on olthor side of the roadbed , and the sound of the woodman's ax has never yet disturbed the stillness of the virgin spot.

A largo number of the quills nro too heavy for Hint-purpose so they nro Ingeniously shaved into strips , Ilrmly put together nnd bound in cloth , to bo used as a sub stitute for dross waist whalobono. In this form they are light , pliable and strong. Perhaps I should not have dis closed the feet , for some of your inge nious Yankee'readers mtiy utilize the idea. " A IMuokHiinlce nt Kan.
