What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Tho oxplosion occurred a low min­ utes after one* o’clock, just on tho meu were going to work aftor their miduight lunch. It is supposod huvo been caused by powder, which was taken into tho magazine to bo thawed, having become ignited, is tho custom to keep only enough powder iu the magazine for one shift. Frank DoraD, who looked after tho magazine, had just carriod in suffi- powder for shots in tho morn­ ing. He was last seen alive bonding ovor tho box, aud his body found twenty feet away in the tuunol,-the magazine being in adrift. From this it is argi ed that the pow­ der must have becotfio ignited and he, sceiDg the danger, tried to escape. Twenty-two meu wore at work on this level and all had to pass tho magazino in going back to work. When the explosion occurred hulf of them had passed and began going ilown tho shaft, which is thirty feet from tho magazino.

Thrro are four legs, four arms, four eyes, two look­ ing iD each direction, two mouths, only one pair of ears. There is a simultaneous pulse n both bodies.

The question of legality of wbat •o known as “gold coin contra ts” was raisod for the first timo in Oma- ame up io the case of Chaso vs. Wren, an action to collect pay­ ment of a $20,000 mortgage on which default in interest has occurred. The attorneys for the defonso raised the point in the dietrict court as to the effect of inserting in a note or contract tho words, “to pay io gold coin,” or the words “to pay in gold coin or its equivalent,” and argued that io eithor form the note would be illegal, being in violation of tho legal tender law and contrary to public policy. It was further argued by the defense that if not voiding and in­ validating the' note entirely, the sec­ tion requiring payment in gold was void. During the argument the court said that it would not onforce that part of the note contracting to pay in gold; that if it came to a question of holding that tho note was payablo in gold coin or coutract was illogal and void tho court would hold that it was illogal and void.

His friends and admirers make no secret of that fact. IJlioy arc anxious that the sound money element of tho democratic party should accept him as its candidate instoad of Morrisou Carlislo, but tho older politicians snoor at Mr. Russell’s aspirations, and suggest that a man of his years hod bettor tako a back seat. He may bo expected to have ,a front pew whenever anything that he is ii ested in is going on. As one of his admirers from Massachusetts markod: “Billy Russell has just good a right president as Secretary Carlisle or Col. Morrison or any other ma the democratic party. It's true ho ia young, but bo bos got lots of brains, and can stand up along with any of them. Billy may not get but it is a big thing for a young fellow like him to bo talked about for president.\ Tho offioials of tho Cuban republic, having exhausted tho generosity of their frieods and sympathizers in tho United States, are now offering tbo publio $2,000,000 in bonds, payable ton years after the date of the evacu­ ation of Cuba by tho Spanish forces, io United States gold coir/ of the present standard of weight aod fineness, with interest at 6 per cent, payable in gold semi annually Havana and New York. All the revenues of the republic are pledged the payment of the bonds, but thore is a stipulation that interest may be deferred until six months aftor tho evacuation of Cuba. These terms of the loan as stated- in the advertisement, with the additional hint that no offer leas than 60-per cent of the face value of the bonds will bo considered. Mombore of the Cuban junta, ex­ plain that thoy havo received as many gratuitous contributions as they can conscientiously accept, and will here­ after receive nothing- without giving a formal assurance that it will be re­ paid. - They feel that their causo has roachod a degree of hopefnlm which will justify them in placing a loan upon the market, with re able expectation of being able it when due. Largo su money havo been offered them for mch security, they say, but until now they have not considered it honorable to accept loans. The fail- oof tl attitudo of the government of the United States, they think, makes Cuban indopendenco certain, and thoy ask their friends to con ward and tako tbo bonds as voatmonti not as a contribution to “Cuba libra.” It is vory likely that a large amouut of those bonds will be sold. Thus far tbo revolutionary committee has difficulty in raising money to carry on the war. Every Cuban cigarmaker in the country gi' percentage of bis weekly earnings, and a considerable amount has boon subscribed by Cuban oxiles in New York. The original Cuban republic, organized in 1868, issued $15,000,000 or $20,000,000 of bonds in three or four years, nnd 6ome issues were sold as high as 75 ceqts on the dollar. Toward tho end of the revolution they were freely offored at 3, 4 and 5 por cent, and thore is now many trunkful stowed'away in New York. NUMBER 17. the useful are tho honorable, aud that they who livo on the labor of othors aro tho cnomies of society. Every child should bo taught that useful work is worship, and that inV telligeilt labor is tbo highest form of prayer. “Children should be taught to think, to investigate, to rely upon the light of reason, of observation and experience; should bo taught to use all their senses, und thoy should be taught only that which is in some really useful. They should bo taught the use of tools, to uso their hands, to embody their thoughts in tho construction of things. Their, lives should not bo wasted in the ac Tho speech of -ax-Gov. Russell of quisition of tho useless or of tho al- Years should not be devoted to tho acquisition of dead languages or to tbe study of history, which, for tho most part, is a de­ tailed account of things that novor occurred. “Real education is tho hopo of tho future. Tho development of the brain, tbo civilization of tho heart, will drivo want and crime from the world. The schoolhouse is the real cathedral aud scionco tbo only pos­ sible savior of the human raco. Edu­ cation, real education, is the friend of honesty, of morality, of temper­ ance. “Man will be civilized when the passions are dominated by the intel­ lectual, when reason occupies the throne and .when the hot blood of passion no longer rises in successful revolt. “To civilize the world, to hasten thecqming of the golden dawn of tho perfect day, wo must cducato the children; we must commence at tho cradle, at tho lap of tho loving rnothor. “The reforms that I havo men­ tioned cannot be accomplished in a day, possibly not for many centuries, aod in the meantime there is much oHrne, much poverty, much want, and consequently something must bo done now. Let each human being within the limits of tho possible be self-support­ ing; let overy one take intelligent tbou’ght for tbo morrow, and if a being supports himself and acquires a surplus lot him use a part of that surplus for tho unfortunate, and let oach one to the extent of his ability help his follow-men. “This, in my judgment, is real religion. To do all the good you can is to bo a saint in tho highest tbe noblost sense: To do all tho good you can—this is to be really and .trolly spiritual. To re­ lievo suffering, to put the star of hopo in the midnight of despair— this is true holiness. This is tho religion of science.
