Married Tor Money.
The sequel to a peculiar elopement
which took place in Now York in July ,
1891 , is being unfolded In the superior
court of that city. Elsie Van llorno
Arnholm , 17 years old , is seeking for
the annulment of her marriage to Ed
ward Arnhoim , her young husband.
Elsie met Arnholm July 23 , 1891. They
were driven to the IIolTman house ,
where they entered into a verbal agree
ment of marriage. Thence they went
to the Metropolitan hotel , whore they
remained two days. They afterward
wont through a formal ceremony of mar-
ringo at the city hall. Then it was that
she discovered that instead of being
rich , as ho had represented himself , his
fortune amounted to $2.34. He in turn
learned that his wife was not an heiress ,
as ho had supposed. A separation fol
lowed , and she went home. Edward was
arrested July 29 , six days after the mar
riage , on a charge of misappropriating
money belonging to his employer ,
Samuel Cohen. Young Arnhoim had
been arrested four times before on
charges of dishonesty. This time Re
corder Smytho sent him to the Elmira
reformatory , to remain until ho was 21
years old. Ho will bo released in a few
weeks. Since her sensational escapade
Elsie has been at" a boarding school.
She is willing to have the marriage an
nulled , and her parents have taken the
stops necessary to bring it about.

Notes of the I'nlr.
CnicAOO , 111. , Juno 3. [ Special to Tun
Jrie.Away ] from the monotonous magnlll-
enco , the incomprehensive expanse of the
vast whlto palaces turns the crowd. The
hrongs In the state buildings and the
nasses on the plaisanco nro evidence of the
lopulnr Inclination. The foreign groups nnd
ho "freaks" of the Midway plnlsanco are
ho attractions above nil now.
Ii Cnlro Street.
All else In the Midway , which Is a broad
tatcincnt , too , has been overshadowed smco
ho opening of Cairo street The portals of
ho miniature Egyptian metropolis are dally
besieged by as many thousands as visit the
ilaisanco , for "Cairo" is an attraction most
rrcsistlblo. From the exterior thcro Is a
view of the mosnuo nnd Its beautiful mlnn-
ot , with nn occasional gllmpso of the lovo-
Ick mozzin , who lost his heart to an Ohio
ypowrltcr , ns ho Is calling the followers of
Mahomet to prayer. The entrance fee is
v trifle , though before the pilgrim
concludes It is the old story of cost-
ng a penny to got in nnd n
> ouud to got out , for Cairo has Its wheels
vlthln wheels. Yet thrco hours may bo
spent In the street without n thought of tbo
lassing timo. It Is no representation of nny
mrticulnr street , the Idea carried out by the
thedivonl architect Being to reproduce vari
ous styles of structures of various ages.
The mosque is a copy of that of Sultan Knit
Bay. nnd Its graceful inlnarot that of Abou
Bahko Mazar. Across the way there is the
structure that was a lulacoln the days when
Gamau el dlnel Yahter , a wealthy
Arab , purchased It , nnd that
wns 300 years ago. It Is said to bo a faithful
reproduction. In n largo court yard , to
which runs a narrow and crooked street
from the under portion where are the
lumcrous bazaars , a number of attractions
nro grouped. Thcro nro in the front of it
two obelisks soventy-flvo feet In height ,
covered with hieroglyphics. The interior
decoration Is given up to a description of
men who lived about the time
of the second Hamescs. In the rear
are the statue of Thir nnd the sarco
phagus of the sacred bulls. A dozen
nusicians make matters lively in this vlciu-
ty. In another portion of the grand court
an astrologer's tent is located. The boss
fakir stands In front nnd balances nn empty
egg on the tip of his nose until a sufllciont
crowd gathers , when ho takes the party into
his tent and performs in n manner that Is
warranted to result in nervous prostration of
the timid spectator. The conjuror sticks
spikes through his cheeks , gouges out bis
eyes and replaces them , and all in all earns
the potty stipend of backsheesh conceded
by the manager of the streot.
Thry Form a Weird Collection.
Tnc Nubian and Soudanese "dancers , " so
called , in huts having triangular entrances
and requiring acrobatic exertion to pene
trate , are a weird collodion. Thrco genera
tions are represented , grandpa and the 2-
year-old babe executing the distinctively
African steps and the balance of the party
maintaining a monotonous thumping oh
pigskin tom-toms , containing nbout as much
music as there is in a hoarse bullfrog after a
bad night. The chief buck wears a heavy
matting of goat hoofs on the south when he
is not facing that way , and wh n. a visitor
fails to drop a nickel in the slot the inky
Imp'bout faces nnd rattles the cones under
his very noso. The charcoal beauties and
the picaniunies manage to busy themselves
collecting backhecsh , all of which is turned
in forthwith to the treasurer , for there is a
man in oacn hut who acts in that capacity.
Ono of the girls said in fairly good English
that ho was the "father" of the entire
party. These people dwell continually In
their huts. They subsist from a general pot
of pork and beans and sleep on a shelf
which forms the second story of the huts.
Cairo also has its Egyptian theaters. The
stage is much wider than the nverngo
stage of American theaters , but
it does not boast great depth.
A bait dozen jet-black eunuchs lolling lazily
on luxurious looking divans render the
music , the same distinctive Oriental sing
song that is heard In the Turkish theater.
Dancing forms the chiefest portion of the
entertainment hero. A number of really
beautiful types of Cairo girls who are pro-
licicnt in their particular style of beating
time give frequent performances. The
feature of the show is tire act of Mile.
Phrydon. As many people know the Egyi > -
tian girl dances upon the theory of there
being just as much poetry in the motion of
her body ns in the tripping of the feet. Miss
Phrydon picks up a chair with her teeth
and holds it iu a perpendicular p sition
as she trips about. After awhllo she
lays prone upon the floor , with
the chair still In her strong jaws ,
and then goes through a scries of oody
motions that are altogether fantastic and of
questionable propriety. The Turkish theater
draws but moro men than women go. The
women are tossing many a quarter to the
grizzled old fakir who squats in the sand ,
goes through strange motions and reads his
customer's future in the stars. Ho has an
intorpreter. Children revel m rides nbout
the street on Egyptian donkeys. There is n
brood of camels , too , with native drivers
who have doubtless oft traversed
Sahnr.i's nrld waste. Thcro Is every
thing Imaginable that could coma
from Egypt on sale In the ba/aars ,
from n package of stinking cigarettes to n
copy of the Alkoran of Mahommed , There
is a photograph gallery , where photographs
of the youthful Abbas , Egypt's now khedive -
dive , may bo purchased for $1. They are
copyrighted. Caias street abounds in attraction -
traction nnd interest. It is the best of all
the plalsnnco side shows.
Amusing In Their Ignorance.
Amusing In the extreme is the concoptlon
some people who have never been hero have
formed of the extent of the exposi
tion. Many who look ns if they
ought to know bettor will display the
most nmnzlng Ignorance. I hoard n party ol
fnir women going out on an Illinois Central
train planning the day's trip. It was about
10 o'clock ,
' First wo must go through the art gal
lery , " ono remarked.
Sightseer No , 2 said the best thing to do
after that was to make an Inspection of the
"And then we'll see what's In the Manu
factures building and the Transportation ,
Wo must see those funny old towns , you
know , and I want to see the ceramics. "
The other woman said that If they spent a
little while on the Midway Plulsanco that
ought to complete a pretty good day's trip
The others agreed that It would.
Perhaps they could accomplish it In three
weeks If they didn't ' examine everything
minutely , It is In line with an actual occur
rence hero the past week. A St. Pau
woman wrote to a friend hero saying she
would bo nt the fair on a certain day ana
she desired to meet her friend "in the Man
ufactures building I" She might as wol
have made it moro definite by saying , "I'l
meet you in Chicago. " People get lost ii
the main building.
The two biggest fights of the exposltlon-
asldo from the Sunday closing war have
been settled. As was written here some
weeks ago In the way of n prediction , Theodore
doro Thomas came out n top and the light
against the director of music remains noth
ing but a faint recollection. The trouble
over the award system , which threatened o
serious outcome , owing to the opposition
among foreign nations to the one man sys
tern , has resulted in n comedown 01
tha part of Chairman John Boyil
Timelier , and the establishment of the Jurj
plan so much in demand , The business o
the great exposition now appears to bo run
nlng along on well oiled wheels. It has
reached a degree of perfection that allowet
the directory during the week to look nbou
nud make u reductionniii expenses whcro 1
was possible. In the future , so it has bcci
estimated , the expenses will not much exceed
coed J100.000 n week. The oftlclals an
highly pleased with the showing for UK
month of Mny. The neUres nro said to show
a clean profit of 250,000. notwithstanding the
unusual outlay , The best dnyi
nro yet to corao. There an
something llko seventy spccla
celebrations on tbo amis , which will draw
musually Inruoi nttendances. There are
many financiers ( .who concluded long slnco
hnt it wns almost Impossible for the oxpo-
ition company bj como out with expenses
pnltl. The dteaclors are , nevertheless , con-
Ulcnt , In tlovaof the Mny showing , that the
nlr will bo a flnnaclal success.
Among tlictb ; big dnys that are to eomo
ho greatest or all will bo German day-
Juno 15 , hcxU From present Indications
not less than 60,000 Germans will part
Iclpato In , tha Brand parade. The

ng nt the Gcrmnn building , nn exhibition of
urntng nnd rv general jollification in the
evening. There will bo n number of hnnd-
seine floats In the parade.
Another greAt day will bo that of the

ngent but the press. Their blow-out will bo

HOUSTON , Tox. , May S3. [ Correspondence
of Tun Br.n.l I crossed the Hed river , the
south boundary line of Indian Territory , into
i'osas nbout sundown , continuing my journey
southwnrd through the "Lono Stnr state , "
The northern part of It , through which I
liasscd before the shades of night had fully
set in , is somewhat similar in general np-
icaranco to the southern part of Indian
Territory. Its scenery is. however , much
ess picturesque nnd tno soil Is not , I tin nk ,
so fertile. Arrived nt Fort Worth nbout 11
o'clock p. m. Next morning I started out to
see the town nnd before the sun hnd ag nin
set I had "taken It all in. " I had not been
eng "upon the wing" till the music In the
air ami the fragrance in the breczo gave mo
ilcasmg proof of being then and there in the
' .and of sunny skies , singing birds , roses
; are nnd vincelad bowers. The melody
of song seemed to mingle , so to
speak , with * the sweet' perfume
of flowers , so that the enjoyment
of the ono was accompanied by the delight
iffordcd by ttio other. Fort Worth Is in
many respects n beautiful little city. It is
located upon a piece of rolling upland some
ilfty or sixty foot nbovo the level of the
Trinity river which flows along the west ,
thcnco along the north and thsnco along the
3ast sides of its incorporated territory. The
tanks of the river are heavily frlugod with
timber , thus breaking the monotony of , and
iddlng beauty to the immediate surround
ings. The site of the city was originally ono
of a cordon of military postS'oxtcnding from
the Red river to the Hio Grande , nnd estab
lished about 1849 as a means of protecting
settlers against Indians nnd bands of
marauders from Mexico. The fort whoso
establishment antedated the founding of
the city several years was named after Gen
eral William J.'Worth , who had distinguished
himself during the war with Mexico. The
city afterwards adopted nnd has since re
tained the uamo of the fort. The first houses
in the city were built in 1853. Its population
at different times since then has boon
as follows : It was 350 in 1S01.
in lb"i ( it was 1,073 In 1870
it was 8W5. In 188'J It was 25,301 while at
the present time at is about 30,000 , though
moro is claimed. Its streets are crooked
and irrccular in their courses. Some of
them nro macadamized and some are paved
with gravel. The paving of sidewalks con
sists princinallyof gravel. Neither streets
nor sidewalks are so extensively paved as in
Omaha. It has n number of business build
ings ranging from four to six stories high.
Several of its'hotols are structures of con
siderable si/o , and will compare favorably
with these of much larger placps. Its
dwelling houses are constructed almost ex
clusively of wood. Many of them are largo
nnd costly and would ao credit to any citir.
With several railroaas entering the city ,
five different street railway companies , a
packery with n capacity of 2,000 cattle and
500 hogs per day , a brewing company with a
capital of $300,000 , n cotton mill giving em
ployment to 800 hands , seven banks with an
aggregate capital of $2,800,000 , three dally
newspapers , six weeklies and three
monthlies , twelve public schools under con
trol of from two to twelve teachers , thirteen
select and private schools , thirty churches
and nn equal number of Sunday
schools , and nbout sixty miscellaneous
clubs , orders and societies. Fort Worth
ought to and doubtless will con
tinue a prosperous and growing city.
Remaining there another night , I took my
departure , pursulnjfmy journey till I reached
the town of Wnllls. about 80 miles north ol
Galvcston. Here I again got off the train
for a night. Wallls Is a quiet little village
of no importance , though in the midst of
good agricultural territory. The country
for a considerable distance south of Fort
Worth , while well settled and in largo meas
ure under cultivation , appeared dry in
places , and , though not what might bo called
poor land , is not of a high order of fertility.
Next morning I started for Galvcston.
Along the last 150 or 200 miles over which I
passed the soil gave many evidences of being
exceedingly fertile. Tno trrass was fresh ,
stood thick upon the ground and had a
healthy color , the crops were good and vege
tation of every kind was luxuriant. Tlila
rich belt of country is , however , but thinlj
settled , only a few houses are to
bo seen within It , and large
tracts , embracing many square miles ,
have novcr been touched by u
plow. It has been and still is held in 1m.
menso bodies by ranch men , who hnvo used
it for grazing purposes alono. During the
last few years people from the north have
been coming down hero , purchasing these

long enough to look It over in a general way ,
It Is situated on Gnlveston Island and com
pletcly surrounded by the waters of the Gull
of Mexico. The island is about twenty-five
miles long and irom ono and one-Half to twc
and one-half miles wido. The body of watei
between it and the mainland is four or live
miles wide. The ground upon which the cltj
is built Is from six to ten feet above the love :
of the sea. The city is well and compactly
built. It commands a heavy ocean traflk
and docs a largo wholesale business , Its re
tall business is restricted almost exclusively
within the city Itsolf. On- the soutr
side of the island is a large
hotel known as the "Boach Hotel'
facing towards the ocean. In front of il

SAN FIUNCISCO , Cal. , Mny 31. [ Corre
spondence of Ttin ilr.n. ] There nro four
Jnltcd States mints , located respectively at
'hlladclphla , Now Orleans , Carson City and
3an Francisco. On the corner of Fifth nntl
Missouri streets stands n lane gray stone
julldlng , BUfllcIcntb' imposing as to attract
mtnodlato attention , mul If curiosity leads
the visitor up the lonp flight of broad stone
steps nnd Into the reception hall ho will find
ilmsolf within the walls of the largest mint
n the world. This mint was established In
1853 , and the present bullillng was erected In
1ST > 9. A polite , well Informed and courteous
juldo awaits to conduct the visitors through
, hc work rooms , where can bo seen the dif
ferent processes through which bullion must
lass before It can be used as United States
money. The furnace room Is the first ono to
which the visitor is conducted. The ma
chinery Is run by water power , furnished by
an artesian well In the yards of the inlut
The next room is the deposit room , or ,
more properly speaking , the ingot room.
Hero old gold , silver or jowchy nro received ,
of which any one can deposit to the value of
not less than ? 100 nnd have It melted Into
bullion , assayed nnd the next day receive In
money of full value in gold coin with 10 per
cent of copper alloy and no charges made for
; ho coining. On the day of our visit $500,000
.11 . silver coin was being incited over. Why ?
No ouo could or would explain. It looked
odd to see the apparently perfectly good 50-
cent pieces shoveled into the small , red hot
jowls , where the Intense heat of the furnace
soon reduced the coins to a molten flro ,
which is stirred by small paddles held by im
mense Iron pinchers in the hands of the
skilled workmen , who practically "earn
their broad by the sweat oC the brow. " The
small paddles , as well as the bowls in which
the metal is reduced to liquid , nro made of
clay and plumbago. The ingots of gold and
silver are 12 inelics long , 154 inches wiae nnd
\i \ inch thick. The value ot the gold ingots
is $1GOO nnd the rahio of the silver Ingots of
the snmo size is $ J5.
Tno next process through which the metal
[ lasses is that of rolling intolong.thln strips.
This is done by heavy rollers , under a pres
sure of 250 tons. It takes thirteen times to
roll gold and seventeen times to roll silver.
The gold strips are now put into long copper
tubes , which are then placed in a furnace
until they are red hot , thcnco thrown into a
vat of water , wliicli process tempers the
metal. Each of these long copper tubes are
liandlcd by two workmen and will hold
$ ! 0,000 In gold , or S,500 ! in silver. When the
gokl strips nro removed from the tubes the
told is waxed and * the silver strips are
? rcascd. This is done to prevent abrasion.
The metal is now ready for cutting into
pieces , the size according to the denomina
tion of the money to be mado. The workmen
shove the long gold strips into the cutting
machine , which bandies the precious metal
as it would pastboara , and indeed it is quite
soft , as what is loft of the strips is doubled
up by the hanus of the workman and thrown
into a box to be sent back to the intfot room.
Ono dollar in silver and ? 20 in gold nro cut
out at the rate of 185 pieces per minute , the
smaller at the rate of35 pieces per minute.
The round pieces of gold and silver are now
passed to the cleaning room , where they are
washed free from the wax and grease.
IVhoro VIM tors Are Xot Allowed.
Pooping into the door of the cleaning " room ,
which , visitors are not allowed to"enter ,
could be seen a box of unstamped ? 20 gold
pieces. The box contained $100,000 in gold.
The unstamped coins , now bright and shim
mering , nro taken to the adjustinc room ,
where the ladies work. They nro hero ad
justed to the exact weight of the coin to bo
made. Should a coin prove to bo too heavy
it is filed off ; if too light it coes back to bo
melted over. The milling process puts the
metal in blank form for stamping. 15ut first
It must bo freed from oxidization , which is
done by whitening. The round coins nro now
ready for tbo stamping which makes the
metal money. There are llvo stamping ma
chines , and the dies of thcso can bu changed.
Ono dollar in silver and § 20 in gold are struck
off by the same machine at the rate of 5,000
per hour. The capacity of the machines is
much larger than the supply of gold. But if
all the machines could bo kept working in
gold they could stamp $450,000 in ono hour ,
or * 3,150,000 in seven hours , or ? ( J45,1XX,000 ) in
I00 ! working days. To look nt the largo engine -
gino of 150-horsopowcr that controls the
machinery used in the mint building , ono
would scarce imagine H had been used for
nineteen years , as It appears as bright and
glittering in its polished uiotal plates as If It
I'orty AUIllons Within Roach.
In this great building , where $ -10,000,000 of
treasure is stored away , many seemingly
small economies nro practiced , yet the re
sults nro quito astonishing and moro than
repay the labor. The lloors of the work
rooms nro covered with perforated iron floor
ing in small sections. Every night these
sections are removed and the floor swept.
The sweepings are then worked over with
acid and the yield In gold and silver amounts
to $0,000 per annum. Once n year every
truck aoout the building is burned , irrespec
tive of its condition , nnd also the clothing
worn in some of the work rooms , that not a
particle of the precious metals may bo lost.
Once in four years the carpets In the ad
justing rooms are burned. ThoJast burning
enriched the United States coffers to the ex
tent of f3iJOO.
Leaving the stamping room the visitor
finds himself in a long atone corridor facing
two vaults , whoso heavy iron doors conceal
the treasures of $10,000,000 and in their
mighty strength of stool and Iron seem to
mock as childlih piny the ofllclal papers
sealed with red wax .and marking them as
belonging to the United States government.
Itaro Collection of Old Coins ,
The guide now leads the way upstairs to
the main hull , ivhoro the visitor can , if so
disposed , pass A pleasant and instructive
hall hour viewing the collection of rare old
coins on exhibition in the reception room.
The most antique among the coins is a Jew
ish shekel ; obverse side , urn and Hebrew
characters ; reverse side , lig trconml Hebrew
characters. This coin is traced back to 100
years H. 0. The shekel is the common cur
rency of that time. Tlio size is about that of
n 50-ccnt piece , being worth that amount as
pure silver , but In its present shape a very
rare and almost priceless coin. Among the
coins , which are too numerous to mention ,
n Pine tree shilling Is to ho seen.
The coin Is not clear cut and looks little Ilka
our silver coins of today , but it recalls to
mind the well known storv of Captain Hull ,
whom the United States government em
ployed to make 1ho plno tree shilling , giving
him ono in every twenty. He soon grew
wealthy , and when his favorlto daughter
was happily maided ho gave her for her
wedding dowery her weight in plno tree
chllllngs , and she is said to have tipped the
scales at 'J25 pounds. Two small golden
spoons In the collection exclto considerable
surioslty and speculation. They are said to
1mvo buon taken from Solomon's tcmplo.
The spoons nro similar In nppoaranco to the

Great Juhlloo Celebration HUtorloil r.icts

ROCK ISLAND , 111. , May 30. To tha Editor
of THE Bnn : Throughout the Lutheran
Scandinavian congregations the present year
is a year of Jubilee. Two previous centen
nials of a similar nature have been observed ,
viz. , 1G93 and 1703. Allot the numerous local
celebrations during the present year will
reach a grand climax in the great jubilee to
be celebrated nt Augustann college on the
9th o' June. Tills is national in its charac
ter , being authorized by the Lutheran
Aujustana synod of the United States of
America. As this celebration marks an
event of highest Importance , not only to
Lutherans , but to all protestant Christians ,
it may bo of interest to recall some histoiical
facts connected with it.
Christianity was first IntroducoJ into
Sweden in the year 81)0 ) , A. D , by Ansgarius ,
"tho npostlo of the north , " who was called
into that country by the Swedes themselves.
By the twelfth century Christianity was
generally professed in Sweden and the
bwedcs had become devoted Catholics. The
national church enjoyed great liberties until
the year 1248 , when , through papal usurpa
tions , she became a vassal to Homo. In
course of time the church became very rich
nnd n period of corruption nnd tyranny fol
lowed. In the tlmo of Guitavus Vasa (1523- (
1600) ) the doctrines of the U-formation were
lirst preached in Sweden by Olaus nnd Laur-
cntius Potri , two brothers , who were disci
ples of Luther. The king did all in his
power to spread tlieso doctrines. Several
important auxiliary events , among which
may bo mcnntioned the confiscation to the
crown of the valuable domains of the Catho
lic church nt the diet in 1527. and the trans
lation of the Now Testament into Swedish in
1520 and of the whole blblo in 1540-1 , power
fully aided this movement.
The reformation was carried on with mod
eration , the object buing not to destroy the
old church , but to cleanse her of her corrup
tions. Under sway of this motive oven the
episcopacy , which long before had been cs-
tablUhcd In the Swedish church , was al
lowed to remain and was perpetuated with
proper "apostolical succession. " John HI. ,
son of Gustavus Vasn , In his reign (1568- (
151)2) ) ) made an attempt to harmonize the
Swedish church , his object being to unite
the Roman Catholic , the Lutheran and all
the reformed churches Into ono church , The
Lutherans earnestly protested against this
union. King John , hoping that the pope
would favor the proposed union , embraced
the Catholic faith , but the pope declined his
terms. Then the king banished all the
Jesuits from Ills realm , closed the Catholic
churches and urged the heir apparent , Slgls-
mund , to renounce the Catholic faiih , which
the latter refused to do. At the tlmo of
King John's death Siglsmund , who had been
elected king of Poland , was at the Polish
cnpital. During his absence the Lutherans
In Sweden urged upon Uuko Charles , the
brother of John , to cull n diet for the pur
pose of adopting some resolutions of protec
tion to the evangelical faith , which Slgls-
rnund should bo requested to approve before
the Swedes would acknowledge him as their
king. The diet , accordingly , wns called , and
assembled at Upsala on the 2Sth of Febru
ary , 1.W3. The duke and his council , four
bishops , moro than UOO ministers , many
noblemen , merchants and farmers wcro
present. The sessions continued till March
UO. King John's work was un
done. " The unaltered 'Augsburg con
fession was unanimously adopted and nil
present declared that they wcro
ready to dlo in defense of It. Then the
president of the assembly exclaimed
'Sweden Is now ono man , and wo hare all
ono God. " The act of the diet , preserved to
