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.

WORRY AN HEIRESS. MEALS IN TIN CANS. HAD A CHRONIC THIRST. 4 Vitt Vichto !Wien% By ROBERT C. BAILEY. WICKES, : NONTANA. Profess° Roentgen should turn his light on the Turk. The growl of the British lion has sub- sided into a soft, kittenish purr. Girls and billiard balls kiss each other with just about the same amount of resi feeling. Many a weary and sleepy dad is envy- ing the New Jersey man whose baby slept six weeks. The man who tells you he has seen better days has undoubtedly experi- enced worse nights. We can't afford to go to war with England. It wouldn't do. What should we do with our heiresses? The politician never begins to talk about \rising above party\ until after his party has quit electing him to of- fice. Portraits of Emperor William can now be had for half price in,London. This should be a lesson to unruly grand- children. Of course there may be an aldermanic ethical standard, but if there Is the average man would have to stoop over to reach it. It is evident that the queen can say nothing as - gracefully as any of her trained diplomats, and say it in just as many words. When Mrs. Chang looks over her 1,000 dresses it must be a bitter thought to her that her husband is without a yellow jacket. Owing to the fact that the Turks are experiencing a feeling of lassitude the sultan has decided to grant amnest,to the Armenians. • We are able to announce that the women are still in Washington, in spite of the declaration of Senator Hill to the effect that they ought to go. Will Prior, who eloped with a girl on twelve hours' acquaintance, may properly be said to have been as pre- vious as his name indicates. While the sultan and Queen Victor's are writing pleasant letters to eact other it is perilous for any one to ever feed the oppressed Armenians. Very courteous burglars they have in Indiana. When they called on Gov. Matthews they - left their cards, but that was about all they did leave. The Valkyrie is for sale and can be had for what her sails cost. Even at that her notoriety will prevent an great rush of would-be purchasers. • Hetty Green is suing two Chicage , men for selling soil from her farm Iletty is bound that nothing capable GI being turned into dust will escape her Having paid his money to be a rea editor, Mr. Astor undoubtedly has just cause for complaint, and we are pleases to see that he intends to get his money's worth. Every time they discover a gold mine in Georgia somebody starts a news- paper on the spot. This is wise, for it generally takes a first-class gold mine to run one. It has long been conceded that money talks, but never was it more eloquent of patriotism and loyalty than when offered for the purchase of our new national bonds.

II E Philadelphia post man who has 1833 Latona at. on his route is devout- ly praying that Miss Elizabeth Kel- ly, who lives at the address named, may either move or marry and thus lighten his toil. Miss Kelly is in daily receipt of hundreds of letters, quite a percentage of them being of- fers of marriage. Until within a few weeks she had hardly received a letter in her life. Then came word from abroad that her father's elder brother, of whom nothing had been heard for many years, was drowned while return- ing to England from Australia, where he had made a fortune of $15,000,000. All this he is said to have left to his niece. The publication of this story is responsible for the vast proportions as- sumed by the mail daily delivered at the Kelly home on Latona at., Phila- delphia. Miss Kelly is a modest young wom- an, living with her father, a hard- working gardener. While refusing to become excited over her alleged good luck, she .claims to have good reason to believe that her uncle really died A temperance banquet was given tc the mayor of Southport. England, re- cently. at which the drinks were orange champagne, ginger champagne, lemon- ade, ginger ale, gingerette, waterine and coffee. Three times as many American horses have been sold in England this year as were called for in 1894, and their average price at the ports of shipmen has been $165. They are used chiefly for draught in London. MISS ELIAZBETH KELLY. possessed of enormous tvealth. A day or two after the publication of the story offers of marriage, appeals for charity, etc., began to pour in, and so far the stream has kept on increasing. Letters from all points of the compass and from all sorts and conditions of men and not a few women have fair- ly deluged the gardener's daughter. But although they bore Miss Kelly, these letters illustrate a curious phase of human nature. One from an accom- modating if elderly wooer is as fol- lows: \Dear Miss I am a farmer 42 yeara, but I think I coold learn to love you and also learn you to love me. We could live here which my mother owns the farm and coold help you keep house and so save the expense of Hired Help and we coold buy more farms next to us and make the Farm bigger and that will be something for farming is a good business now that our glorus country which the beautiful stars and stripes floats over it is getting woke up and not allow any scheming poli- ticians to run things to suit their - selves any longer. Line all right althoe line a populist. But enough of this you are probably say to yourself. Yea all right but what kind of a man are you Well I stint one to brag about my- self but I know I will be a good hus- band to you not being young and skit- tish like a colt but settled down and a church member. I go to the methodist church, but I guess if you dont like that I could go where you go. It' stint your money I'm after, but I think I coold learn to love you because I had a dream about you which I dreamed it three times. I wont say nothing about my looks fur I am to go to git my pic- ture toolenext week and send you one. my mother inclose a few lines of refer- ence and so good -by till I hear from wou.

It appears to be the fate of every in trinsically good movement in our das that it has to run the risk of becoming a fad. We are face to face with wha may be called a municipal extensioir fad. Every city in the union is bent upon • swallowing its blanket, like tire eccentric boa constrictor. The real problem before most of our American cities is not how to spread them out thinner, but how to govern them bettor It is not more territory that they need but more wisdom to make the most of what they have. There seems to be something of a natural antipathy between Mayor Pin• gree and the judiciary of this country Ile has sat down upon a number of the judges of Michigan and now the wear era of the ermine in Chicago have tak- en a fall out of his honor. The coal pool is formed for no other purpase than to extort from the poople of this country more than the coal is worth. If there be no law that can prevent the carrying out of such fl con- tipirasy needed legislation` has been riminally neglected. A LEAP YEAR LETTER. How a Little Rork Girl Proposed tu liar - Best Yellow.\ Here is a letter, word for word, which was bent through the mails: \Little Rock, Ark., Jan. 1, 1896.- Mr John Johnson, Clarksville, Ark.: Hear John: This beautiful morning I have decided to write and tell you some- thing which has been on my mind for a long, long time. We have been hav- ing some bad weather, rain and snow mid most everything you could Imagine, but this morning is bright and beauti- ful, and, John, I must let you in it secret. The brighter the sun shines the harder 1 think of you. I am tired of living this way; I long to be with you; I feel so alone and unsettled. This be- ing leap year and the ladies' choice, I would like to know, dear John, If you are not about ready to get married and settle down? We have known each other for a long time, and you surely know I love you John, and if you will only give me a chance I will make yor a good wife. \I have a good place with Mrs. Thompson, with Jennies and my board, and reasonably good wages, anti there is plenty of work here which you could get to do. The government work over in Argenta will open up Monday, and they will employ 200 men, half white and half colored, at $1.50 and $1.75 a day. I think you could get a job there, and we could get along so nicely. , : , I would keep the place I have until we could do better. I am willing to do most any way just for the sake of be- ing settled. \There are plenty of other men— gcod and true men, too—whom I could marry if I would, but they are not you, John, and although they would make me good husbands, I could never care for them, dear John, as I have always and will always- care for you. Stifls I can't wait on forever, and unless you decide to do something definite before long I will have to look further, for I am mighty tired of 'single -blessedness. It ain't what it is cracked up to be by a long shot. \Jennie is going to school and learn- ing fast, and she is just crazy to see you. She sends a whole heap of love. Kindly remember me to your mother and all the rest of the family, but save a large share of my love for your dear self. \Hoping for an early and favorable reply and wishing you the happiest of New Year's, I remain, yours very lov- ingly, \Mollie S.\ Gives • Fortnne for Peace.

Park Place, a mining village, one mile east of Mahoney City, Pa., was the scene of a cold-blooded murdet the other night. John Shanosky, 27 years old, was engaged to marry a Miss Caro- witz. The wedding was set, and a large / JOHN SHANOSKY. crowd gathered at the house of John Carowitz. father of the bride. As is the custom among the Poles on occasions of this kind, a large quantit of bee- was on hand, of which Duo guests imbibed freely. It was geterally known that there were others who wished to marry Miss Carowitz and considerable jealousy existed. The fes- tivities had not been in progress more than an hour when a shot was tired on the street in front of the house. When the guests rushed out they found the bridegroom badly wounded on the pavement. He soon died. No arrests have been made. A monied Mosinee* Scheme.

COURSE DINNER IN CANNED FOODS. No Besieged Has Stored Them. Enough to Eighteen Months. City Need Starve—Paris Enormous Quantities of Feed the City HAT greatest ter- ror of war, a starv- ing garrison and a starving town, sur- rounded by a hos- tile camp, yet able to see far-off fields of grain and plenty, could not be re- peated in this age of canned goods, meats, vegetables, puddings and fruits, all incased in tiny jars or boxes of tin. It used to be easy to beleaguer a city and starve it into submission with hardly an ounce of shot, for it was a foregone conclusion that if all avenues of food supply were shut off only a few weeks would elapse before both garri- son and citizens would have to capitu- late, though they might eat ratflesh and horseflesh first. But now, so cleverly are provisions compressed and packed away into tins, and so long will even the foods that most usually spoil quick- ly keep—for years in most cases—that no city or town could be starved out if it only had a chance to provision itself properly. The city of Paris has stored away hundreds of thousands of packages con- taining canned and compressed food enough to supply the entire population for at least eighteen months. This out- fit of canned food is not permitted to be touched, though at times it is tested to see that it still remains unspoiled. Other cities in Europe have built up stores along much the same lines, though Paris has by far the most im- portant assortment of canned food held in reserve. Outside of these preparations the manufacture of canned articles has grown to be something enormous, es- pecially in meats and vegetables. In many cases the canned goods seem to be actually preferred to the original prod- ucts. Nearly every wise housekeeper nowadays emulates Paris in a small way, for she keeps on her shelves any numOser of these little boxes and thus finde\herself always ready for any emergency should company suddenly irop in or the butcher or grocer fail to turn up. It is really surprising the variety of things to eat that are put into cans. As a matter of fact one can live, and live comfortably, on canned foods alone. \I can stock your house,\ said a big whole- sale grocer to a World reporter, \so that you need not make another pur- chase of food for five years, and you shall have every day a perfect dinner at soup and fish, entrees, roasts, fruits. pudding, cheese and coffee, all canned goods.\ Canned goods, though, have proved themselvea of the greatest value to travelers from the fact that an enor- mous amount of nourishment can be carried in an exceedingly small com- pass. The Arctic explorers first found alit the value of canned meats and vege- tables, and in this way Were able to tra- vel with less hardship anti to do things which would have been impossible had it been necessary for them to depend upon food in its original form. When the Greely expedition went away in 1881 a large quantity of pem- mican was put on board. A large part of it was not consumed on the trip, and On the return of the explorers It was sent back to the firm from which it was bought. When the Peary expedition was being fitted out ten years later and the same firm was doing the providing, they opened sample cases of this pem- mican and found it to be in as good condition as if fresh made. So it was sent out with Peary, and ois that explor- er's return to New York what was left proved to be as good and as nourishing as it had been in 1881. No expedition of recent date has plunged Into the Dark Continent with- out being well equipped with tin boxes of all sizes and varieties. It is said that there is no desert plateau in any part of the earth where one Is not liable to run across an empty beef can. Transatlantic steamers and sailing ships about to start out on long voy- ages use these goods in great tomtit I t it's because they keep no well and because they can be stored so easily. Vi'hen - pre- pared by a skillful cook it is impos Bible for the diner to distinguish be- tween fresh meats and vegetables and those that are canned. Origin of Whits Satin mt•ra. The white satin stock, HOW so mulch worn by American women, has an ori- gin not suggested by its coquettish ap- pearance. At the time of President Carnot's death it W RR adopted by the fashion leaders of Paris as a symbol of mourning Its Raul signification was noon forgotten by the tickle Parisians, as they grew to realise the Vaille of the brirel. white ribbon as an accessory to almost any eostimie. - — --- A IL Woman.

El••••• agoktans Were Nat Ignitistilt Ite *wary the giseabwes App•ISSe. • A young man named Illissaberg, a beer drummer for the Anheuser-Busch o l i. brewery, can thank the pro rjetor of a saloon near the Wainwrigh building that he is not cold, lank co pse. He wanted to be judged by his actions, and it took some trouble, tr, to turn him aside from his purpose. An evening or two ago Eisenberg, accompanied by his friend, Dick Fleming, who is a well- known employe of the city government dropped into the barroom mentioned. They had several drinks, and then Eisenberg began to boast of his bibu- lous abilities. He could drink more than anybody and was willing to bet on it. Fleming did not want to enter si swill- ing contest, but he was entirely willing to wager with Eisenberg that he was not nearly as much of a go -as -you - please guzzler as he thought he was. After much haggling a bet was ar- ranged, which provided that eleven whisky cocktails, man's size, and with the usual jigger of whisky in each, should be prepared and set on the bar. Eisenberg was to drink them, one after another, with only such pause between gulps as would enable him to set down one glass and pick up the next one. The loser was to pay for the drinks used in the test, and for whatever other liquors the onlookers consumed. The drinks were mixed and set on the counter. Eisenberg began with grace and he soon had six under his belt. Then they seemed to come a little slower, but they were not held long enough to cause trim to violate the true conditions of the contract. The eleven drinks were finished as per program and Eisenberg declared the winner. \Now said he, \I'll bet you I can drink eleven more.\ \I'll bet you anything you like you can't.\ was the answer. \What will you bet?\ said Eisenberg. \One hundred dollars. liow will that suit you?\ \That's all right. I've not that much money with me, but I'll bet this watco which cost $300, against your pile.\ \It's a go,\ said the other man-, and the barkeeper mixed eleven cocktails more and set them on the counter. By this time Eisenberg began to show the effects of his liberal previous liba- tions. He manifested evidences of nau- sea, anti his friendkadvised him not to tackle the new test. , Mr. Fleming good-naturedly offered to call the thing off, and, although Eisenberg protested at 'rat, he finally agreed. The drinks were thrown away. He was not as well as he might be next day, but he is all right now. Mean- while he thinks he can lay Just claim to being the cocktail champion of St Louis --Star Sayings. Heady Sympathy of Ellen Terry. Ellen Terry's kindness and beauty of nature are proverbial. But I' cannot help bringing to light a little incident which I remember many years ago, says a writer in Lady's Pictorial. I was walk- ing with her in a very poor part of Bris- tol, when she could not have been more than three or four and twenty, and in her arms she carried her baby of a few weeks old. She was desperately tired, and as it was raining a cold sleet anti drizzle, she suggested taking a cab home, adding, \I have but one shilling with me, which will just answer our purpose.\ At that moment a very poor- ly clad woman pressed us to buy her vio- lets. I had no money out with me, and Ellen Terry-. with her quick and ready sympathy, always oblivious of self, ex- claimed to me: \I am no freezing myself, even in this thick shawl, that poor woman must be nearly dead:\ whereupon she flew into a small woolen draper's, spent her re- maining shilling upon a knitted cross- over, and with the utmost simplicity tied it over the poor shivering beggar.

The sore became worse; I could not put my boot on and I thought I should have to giSe up at every step. I could not get any relief and had to stop work. I read of a cure of a similar case by Hood's Sarsaparilla and concluded to try it. Before I had taken all of two bottles the sore had healed and the swelling had gone down. My oat is now well and I have been greatly bene- fited otherwise. I have increased in weight and am in better health. I cannot say enough in praise of Hood's Sarsapa- rilla.\ Man. H.
