their senators , nnd they nil found their way

the result that nearly every senator was
soon surrounded by a group of wistful-eyed
men , and then was soon obliged , In self-de

they lost popularity and the leaders , who
rarely have a moment to themselves , had
leisure today to sit quietly and commiserate
with their hard besot colleagues , on the
democratic side. Several of the republican
senators talked earnestly with Senator
Stewart , iwssibly In explanation of the party
necessity which had Impelled them to drop
him from the minority membership on the
Appropriations committee. If ho feels any
Mircness over this mutter Senator Stewart
manages to conceal It very effectually Hi'
professes to bo entirely Hatislled with his
situation , beitiK at liberty to vote with

do not commend themschvs to his judgment ,
Irrespective of party considerations.

son of "sweating. " In all instances the
lightweight has been made good or the gold
has been accepted at its actual weight. The

Those who braved the storm last evening
to hear the last of a series of lectures deliv
ered by Mr. Frank It. Kobersou in this city
wo.ro not disappointed. The subject , "India
nnd the East Indians , " was a fortunate se
lection , anil proved to bo a thcmo full of In
struction and entertainment.
The speaker , attired In the garb peculiar
to the country , began by speaking of the an
tiquity of Asia , "tho cradle of mankind. "
The great nations of today had been pre
ceded by grout nations of centuries past.
Had there been no Persia or India , there
would have been no Greece or Homo ; anil
had there been no Greece or Homo , certain
of the gro.it European nations of today
would not exist. Civilization began in IndU
! I,0K ( ) years before Christ.
India is divided into three political
divisions , each of which has a government of
Its own. Its area is larger than that of
Europe without Russia. It contains twenty
cities of over KKH)0 ( ) inhabitants oaeh.
The speaker then began nt Tutlcorln In
extreme .southern India and described a four
months journey , giving largo stereopticon
views of noteworthy scones. Ono was at ono
moment in a busy thoroughfare of some
great city surrounded by buildings of odd
design and people of an unfamiliar raco.
The next moment ho found himself before
or within a delicately carved temple ,
of which there seem to bo a invnad , observ
ing Its urtistio sculpture and marveling at
the gcnias that gave It birth. Again ho
shuddered as ho looked ujxin the horrid en
closure at Bombay Into which the natives
cast their dead ami upon whoso walls are
perched greedy vultures ready to seize upon
tholr human prey. Then ho trembled with
the tourist as ho took his first ride upon tlio
elephant and looked with fearful eye ui > on
the ground beneath him. He beheld the
majesty of the Himalavas nnd the grandeur
of the Ganges flowing to want the sea. Ho
saw the natlvo engaged in all sorts of pagan
worship and following all sorts of occup.i-
ttons. Ho suffered In the torrid sun and
gave a sigh of relief when the cool breezes of
another cltmo were Inhaled.
Mr. Koborson goes from hero to Colorado

vonna and Lincoln , was badly hurt yester

There are rumors of an effort to bo male
to abolish the oftlco of gas Inspector. The
schnmo is to assign his duties to the elec
trician and glvo the latter an assistant.
The sis sanitary inspectors of the Hoard
of Health have filed ( applications with the
Hoard of Fire and Police Commissioners for
iwlleo powers. The request will probably
bo granted and the inspectors sworn in as
special ofllccrs. This notion Is necessary ns
they encounter many obstreperous persons
who have no respect for those who do rot
have police authority. A policeman's star
will go a long ways many times with a great
number of people and servo to have them do
what Is right.
Comptroller Olsen will advertise for bids
for repairing and putting in proper condi
tion 200 of the 800 gas lamps owned by the
city. Until recently the gas company has
done this work , but it was found that a con
siderable saving could bo made by Inviting
competition. Gas Inspector Gilbert says
that with proper care these lamps will do
good service for twelve years , ami that it is
necessary to have them repaired and put In
proper condition frequently.
Councilman McLcario has been granted a
leave of absence for one month by the coun

: ra7.y man named Kowdo this morning. The

lined to his bed , dangerously ill. This morn
ing Kowdo entered Carneau's room and de
manded some money , which ho was refused ,
and told to leave the room. Ho did so , but
returned in a few minutes with n largo
butcher knife , exclaiming : "I am going to do
you up. '
Carneau got his revolver from under his
pillow and llrcd ono shot at Kowdo. This
excited him , and with n horrible yell ho
caught Carneau und dragged him out of bed ,
plunging his Knife Into his breast , near his
heart. Carneau then exerting all the
strength ho had left , shot Kowdo through
thur heart , killing him Instantly.

Self Torture !
That's wlmt it amounts to , when you at
tempt to do washing ? and cleaning ,
without Pearlinc. And
now-a-dnys , .
the strange part of it is , that you
should be willing to suffer , when it's
only for your loss and not for your
gain. That needless back-breaking
rub , rub , rub isn't saving you any
thing. It's costing you money ,
It is simply wearing out the
things that you're washing.
Why would you rather do it ?
That is what the women who
arc saving their strength and
their clothes with Pearline can't understand. f
