THE COLTJTMBIAN AJH) DEMOCRAT. BLOOMSBTJR.Gr, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA.
sToAif of Ills imurAi. life as told iiv
Tito ccntrnl figure in tho great mil
road strike on tho Gould Southwestern
syotem wtw Martin Irons. To thoso
whf know anything of tho man this
circuinstnnoo proves conclusively that
the Btriko was not inaugurated at tho
request of tho best element in tho
Knights of Labor of tho Southwcstt
but at tho demand of tho worst ehnrnet-
ers in tho order. Irons is Master AVork
man of the assembly at Sodalia. His
election was not procured by tho con
servative element. His predecessors
wero comparatively fair-minded men.
They objected to arbitrary measures.;
They wero in favor of giving tho rail
road company n chance to settlo a dilli
culty before precipitating a strlko. This
iuu not suit mo ponoy ot trio minority.
It wanted a man of Us own stamp,
was in favor of terrorizing tho company.
It succeeded in cowing tho majority,
and finally selected Irons as tho head
of tho assembly at Sedalia, and tho
Socrotary of District Assembly No. 101.
A fow days beforo tho Knight's con
vention was held at Marshall, Texas,
Irons called at tho Missouri Pacific
Railroad Company's oflico and asked
for return passes for himself mid asso
ciates. His request was granted. It
was for neglecting his business in at
tending this convention and piloting
tho visiting' Knights about tho town,
after tho convention had adjourned,
that Foreman Hall waj discharged bv
tho Receivers of tho Texas Pacifio Hail
When Irons determined to begin a
general striko on tho Missouri Pacifio
Railroad ho did not tako counsel with
tho conservative men of tho order.
His cronies were the desperato spirits.
Ho simply did thoir bidding. Although
perhaps in tho minority the bad clement
was in control. Their ferocious threats
deterred thoso Knights who considered
the striko uncalled for from asserting
their manhood and finally from even
expressing their opinions.
Powdorly saw at a glance, upon
visiting tho section, that, tho strike
was unjustifiable. He lacked the back
bone to tell Irons and his associates so,
and contented himself with issuing his
secret circular on his return to Pennsyl
vania. Tho result of tho striko is a matter
of small consequence 10 the men who
ordered it. The Knights of Labor may
havo received a sovero blow ; manj of
them may have been impoverished ;
many of them may have beeu rendered
homeless, but Irons and Coughlin and
Sullivan, tho heads of the Joint Ex
ecutive Committee of District Assem
blies Nos. 101, 93 and 17, have lost
nothing. Many think they aro much
richer to-day than they were eight
weeks ago! Sullivan is a school teach
er at East St Louis. He may bo a
poor one ; ho looks it, a big, burly,
coarse-grained, red-haired and red
bearded know-nothing, but his job is a
good one and ho retained it all through
the striko. Coughlin is an ex-Methodist
parson. His head teems with wild
ideas, to which ho gives tongue in
ridiculously sensational language. Irons
is an agitator. He calls himself a
machinist, but he never served a full
Tho person who is best qualified to
Bpcak of Irons is his wife. She lives
about five miles southwest of Richmond
Mo., and is a decent body. Tho fol
lowing interview was Held with her a
few days ago. She said :
"I was born in Kelkeith, Scotland,
June 21, 1832. My maiden namo was
Mary Brown. I was married to Mar
tin Irons in Lexington, Ky, by J. K.
Lyle, D. D., on July 28, 1852.
''After I married Martin Irons wo
resided in Lexington, Ky., about three
weeks and then we started for Now
Orleans, stoppincr at Cincinnati, where
my brother and Mr. Irons, went into
the saloon and restaurant business. Ave
returned to Lexinctoa in three months.
Irons went to work for Mr. Heininwnv
in the hemp factory, looking after
inuuiuiiury unuer iioucrt JJrovvn, my
father, who was foreman. In tho fao
tory he lost tho second finger of his
left hand. In tho spring of 1853 wo
removed 10 Cincinnati, where my hus
band worked for Robert" and John
Brown as a machinist. Shortly after
ward ho wont to work in a sowing
machino shop. Prom there we went to

remained there till the fall of 1854,
when we returned to Lexincton. Kv..
and my husband worked in the machine
shops. In 1850 wo went to Hannibal,
Moi Irons could not get any work
mere, so no went to u j.ouis, where, 1
think, ho worked as a machinist. In
tho satno year ho went to work for Mo
Grow & Morrison, in the foundry, at
Lexingion, Mo. Wo left Lexington
for Liberty in 1859. I lived at Liberty
Mo during tho war. In tho fall of
18C5 we returned to Loxincton. Mo.
In 1807 wo went to Knoxville. Mo..

where I now live, five miles southwest
ot Kichmond, Mo.

ANCIENT TOWN OF LYNN,
Tho "inventor'' of llio first American
piano, which was brought out in Salom
according to moro than one chronicler,
would not hnvo enied to Iidvo the fact
generally known that hu spent hour
after hour nt different limes studying
tho lingers piano, nnd that ho copied
all of its essential poinis. This vener
able instrument U a surprising tevela-
Hon to those wlm ponilor on tliu 'strides
mndo in tho mnnnlacliire of piapnfnito
in this cotintty. This musical lelio of
"vu oldun time" is a pretty convincing
bit of testimony to tho fact that iheio
have been no astonishing improvements
in pianos Jor n hniidiul ears. The
cssiiitials of tho modern splendid
pianos are nil in lhai old insirumen',
nnd its nol( s aro still surprisingly ex
cellent, wliile'lhe "action is nlnuxt a
marvel ol mechanical nehiu'incnt, win n J
tho icinoteinss of tho production is
taken into account. The cajo is u onr-t-ly
one, filletH nl raiv inlaid work pio
fusely ilivcisilying tho beautiful lose
wood and mahogany, whllo the keys,
though varying slightly irom llio pres
ent pattern, aro about ns good as those
now standard, In sis.o this instriiuii nt
is in ii'i wiso lo be compared with the
modi i n piano. It is so diminutive
that its leal excellence is obcuieil. Il
is 00 inches long, 2i! 1 2 inches wide
and !tll inches high. Its legs, six in
number, nro ns slim nnd of llio shnpo
ns those of a slnml or small tablo, Tin
leus'aro Kipiaie, tapeiing lo the bottom
slightly bended. Four of tho leg mo
on the ft out of the piano. At oicb
end, mulct neith the piano piopcr, are
email music olivets with door opening
lo the front, while still neater the piny
i t until rneatb aro sin lvi s with ji:u:u
fully rounded cornels. Jti-it nbove the
lees handsotiiu rotetles aro set iion
tho body of tho iittMimeiit. Their
are two pttlnln, one being used In inn
long the tiotcs and tho otlur seiving u
lunula purpose. One of lis ti'u-i h lo
increase tho volume of sound somewhat,
by lifting a section of tho top of tho
piano or nil near the front. Hie other
use of this pedal is to iiiodtico tin imi

comitv lamier. Uno ot them camo a-
lone ono day anil wantid lo bnv llio
faun. As ttio farmer wanted to sell, it
was uuilo easy to striko a liarjiain. The
pure was to be S-1,000 in cash, and the
man handed over S-'')0 to bind the
bargain. Within two days a second
stranger came along and wanted tho
farm. IIo wanted it fo bad that he
couldn't stand still. IIo found indica
tions of coal, natuial gas and conl oil,
and ho was willing lo givo soiOt) for
the place. The idea was, of courte,
that tho farmer would ho awful sick of
his lit nt sale nnd seek to buy tho man

... Tho second stranger was only out of

$2,u00 more, and added :
"Hta I don't' cato for money. The
8-1,01)0 is enough for me and it's all the
old farm is worth. When you are
ready to pay tho balance we'll make
out tin unpen.'
The purchaser offered to release him
lor 1,000 S700 S.iOU 8300, but
tho fanner didn't wnn't ti bo- released.
IIo hung to tho bargain money and he's
got it yet, while the pair ot sharper

Preservative Action of Common Salt,
Ever slnco the days of Lot's wife the
antiseptic and preservative action of chlo
rWo of sodium, or common salt, has been
generally known. Plates of salt have
been placed on cofllus nntl dead bodies
from time Immemorial, probably from
some ill-understood. Idea of its sanitary
virtues. The addition of a littlo vinegar
to a dish of salt causes the disengagement
of chlorido, which Is a potent antiseptic
and disinfectant. During the prevalenco
of epidemic diseases, of whero tho drink
ing wnter Is liable to contamination with
organic matters from any cause, it may ba
well to increase tho amount of salt tuken
with the daily food, as the gastric Juices
would disengage a certain nmount of
freo chloride In the stomach. Chicago

Visual Perception of Colors.
Sensations of vision require a definite
time of exposure of tho retina, which time
Mr. J, if. Cattell of the university of I.eip
bIc, finds to be considerably dependent on
tho nature of the object and the intensity
ot the light. It vnrles with tho several
colore. Orange give the quickest Impres
sion on the eye, and yellow closely follows
It; theu comes blue, red and green; while
the retina is least sensitive to violet light,
the time for which is from two or three
times ns long as tho orange. Ily lamp
light thu eyo works nore slowly than by
daylight, and the order of perceiving
colors is changed to orange, red, yellow,
violet and blue. Arkansaw Traveler.
