addition of hrlck.
About a mile below tho city this
morning about 9 o'clock a car of ma
chinery In tho center of a west
hound freight, took tire from a spark
from tho engine. The burning car was
quickly uncoupled and hurriedly
brought to this city, where the fire
was extinguished by the huso com
panies. The lar was a Hat one and
the machinery was covered with a
heavy canvas. Tho canvas was burn
ed oil' and the woodwork of the ma
clnery and car slightly charred.
The excursion committee of the
Broad Street Methodist Kplscopal. the

Tuesday evening at S.13, to complete
arrangements for the excursion to be
run to Mountain Park July 2fi.
Pome time ago, Touhlll's foundry, of
this place, received a large consign
ment of old cannon shells, relics of the
CIM1 war. Jinny of them were still
loaded and were stored In a shed near
the foundry, awaiting the arrival of
a government expert to unload them.
Friday night, mischievous young men
who had not yet finished celebrating
the Kntirth. stole o-ne of the shells,
took It to the river hank, attached a
fuse and set It olf. There followed a
terrific report and grape-shot fairly
rained on the streets in tho vicinity.
Two young men who writ passing
along Main street at tho time, had a
narrow escape, a piece of the shell
striking tho ground a few feet In
front of them.
James Oizakl, an Italian, who was
employed as a street sweeper In
XVilkes-Harro. lies In a dying condi
tion at the Pittston hospital, having
been terribly beaten and robbed of
$300 near Avoca last night. Oizakl
was In Avoca Inst evening and dis
played hit money too freely. Sionio
one who had evidently seen his wad
of bills lured him away and relieved
him of it. This morning 'his body was
found in the woods back of that bor
ough, almost dead. His head had
been badly lacerated, and ho was
Weeding profusely at the ears. The
hospital officials say the injuries will
doubtless result fatally.

HEAT IN THE PHILIPPINES.
An Episode of a March in the Prov
ince of Cavite.
I once read a moving description ot
thirst In the Soudan, says Oscar K.
Davis in Kverybody's Magazine. The
man who wrote It said that thirst such
as he had endured there was a good
thing, because it marie so very good
Indeed tho long, fizzy drinks that he
got when tho drouth was ended. Some
times In the Philippines nothing fizzed
but the blood, nnd you felt that bub
bling and steaming within you.
In CaUte there Is a long, high ridge
with no streams and no wells. In
peace times an Irrigating ditch waters
it. but war had dried It up. We
marched before daybreak. By 10
o'clock the sun had been shining for h
million years straight Into the brain
of every man In the column. Tho tall,
heat-withered grass, tho yellow, dead
lico In tho abandoned fields, tho faded
bamboos in the low stretches that once
had been swales, joined with the niyrl
ads of heat devils In their fantastic
dance. The still air seemed alive with
them. The earth quivered, I saw a
man throw out his hands and pitch
forward on his face. Somebody tried
to shift him Into a comfortable posi
tion, but when he was lifted up he wns
lead. Men fell out hy scores. Not
even the excitement of the fight could
keep them up, They lay where they
fell, nor cared that the advance of tho
column would leave them In the hands
of any enemy that might come hack
over the Una of march. Those who
tamped at nightfall were scarcely

I'oito Itlcan ait, by whiih M per cent, of the
tariff between Porto Itlio and the United Males
v.aa temoied, ha been very great, especially in
export fiom tho United Matea to Porto HIco.
The ait went into effect May 1, lfXW, and the
flBures for the month of April, 1P0I, theiefoie,
conclude the ttrt .tear of commerce between

"J noticed he wa unusually formal and rir

THKUK WAS calm In the coming of
Hedalln. There wns balm and
healing blessedness. There was
tho boon of peace, Domestic af
falra emerged from their chaos
of disorder nnd moved with rhythmic
regularity. After feeling upon uur
necks the Htlff reins of many a maid-of-nll-work
wo discovered that those
Hedalln. wielded worn silken nnd that
she wns gentle on tho hit. Indeed, we
worn apt to get our mahiphors mixed
when wo spoke of Scdnlla, for Tvhllo
It was tho aspiring young lawyer of
tho family who reproved the sporting
individual for such n, phrase, It was
the daughter of the house who likened
Sedalln to a .treat rock In a weary
land. The pattr famllle.t Jocularly de
cided that she was Rood for the pre
paration of human nature's dally food.
And comment concerning her was
capped by tho small boy emphatically
asserting that sh was all right.
So Heilalla adopted us, and we were
duly grateful for the honor. To bo
sure, she had her peculiarities. She
couldn't abide a body trackln up her
floor. So few were trio feet that trod
thereon soon after the sound of her
scrubbing brush had ceased. And she
resented as rolloctlng upon her capa
bility the anxiety which brought the
mistress of the house out Into the
kitchen before dinner. Her Interest In
the health of the household became
vivid almost aggressive. One must
tender account for heavy eyes or fall
ing appetite. The hoarder fenred to
meet her piercing gaze. Much as ho
relished her waffles, he shrank guiltily
from meeting her eye. And yet he
was the most harmless of boarders
the most Innocent. In regard to wo
men his life was a blank, white page.
"While he had cared In tho course of his
fifty years for several women he had
never been conceited enough to fancy
that any woman rould care for him.
He lived In his office, his books his
few old friends. The daughter of the
house called him the alliterative artist
not, she sxplalned, because he paint
ed portraits In his leisure hours, but
because he wns proper, peculiar, punc
tual, punctillloiis and prepossessing.
Itut, then, no one paid much atten
tion to what the daughter of the house
said. She was at the ago when enjoy
ment of athletic games sweetened her
life, nnd her perpetunl exposition of
the aforesaid delights made melancholy
the lives of others.
The first day that Sedalla bent her
eagle eye upon the bachelor Mr. Alex
ander Trimmertli by name that Indl-
xldunl perceptibly winced.
lie looked up from his delectable
breakfast In slightly nervous appre
hension. "You you spoke to me?"
Sedalla continued to regard him with
"No I didn't. But 1 will if you
don't mind. How's your liver?"
Mr. Trlmmerth gasped. Ho hastily
set down his coffee cup.
"My my " he faltered. My"
"Your liver," repeated Sedalla. "It
doesn't seem to me that the whites of
your eyes have got a real healthy look.
They are kind of yellow"
That was the time the small boy dis
tinguished and disgraced himself.
"If the whites are kind of yellow, Se
dalla." ho ventured, "why don't you
call them the yolks?"
Hut Sedalla was not to be discon
certed. Although her Interest in each
and every memher of tho household
wns unusual. It wns Mr. Trlmmerth
whom she was apparently most anx
ious to keep In perfect health. To tell
the truth, he rather resented her so
licitude, nnd as weeks went on this re
sentment deepened. He spoke of It to
the head of the house with something
"Why she moved the hot biscuits out
of my reach this, morning, as though I
were a child," lie gasped. "Said they
were real short I suppose she meant
rich and said they might bring 011
"You have not been having so many
headaches lately," he was gently re
minded. "N-o! I dare say she's right In the
main. But I can't say that I like her
"She's a capital cooK," declared tho
"I'm not denying that. Rut she's
too conscientious. She tnkes an inter
est in me because she thinks she ought
to. That's the trouble with her con
scientiousness. Now, I'm old enough
to take care of myself."
Ho certainly wns, ns his silvering
locks proved, nlthough he did not look
within ten years of his actual age.
"Do you wish mo to speak to Seda
lla." "Well It wouldn't hurt. Put any
how, the next time she attempts to give
me advice I won't take It."
This declaration of Independence was
put to the test the next morning. It
was a bleak spring day. rtaln had
fallen In the night nnd a raw east wind
was blowing. Mr. Trlmmerth camo
down stairs with 11 neiy spring raglan
on his arm. Sedalla eyed It scornfully,
"You'd better not wear that," she
said. "It Isn't but half as heavy ns
tho one you always wear, and this
wind Is Rolng to do damage. Put on
your winter overcoat."
Mr. Trlmmerth ate his breakfast In
stony silence, but there was a resoluto
glare In his eye, The meal ended, ho
ostentatiously donned the raglan, and
without even buttoning It, went off re
bellious and victorious with his head In
the air. Hut that evening came Seda
lla's revenge. For the boarder came
homo with a touch of fever, n head
ache and a racking pain In his side. Hy
the time the hard slego of pneumonia
was over and he was thanks chlelly to
Sedalla on tho convalescent list, he
was surprised how pleasant he found
It to have tho deep-chested and comely
young xvoman around. What a pretty
throat she had! How neat she always
kept her dark brown hair! And there
was a fine look of loyalty In the gray
blue Irish eyes.
"Sedalla," ho asked one day, after a
prolonged nnd thoughtful silence.
"Why have you never married?"
"May yet," said Sedalla laconically.
"Don't think I will, though. I don't
like to be taken caro of. I'm mora
used to taking caro of people I am."
"So I sec," ho said dryly. "Was It
habit only, then, that Induced your in
terest In me?" He sipped at her excel
lent broth nnd watched her narrowly.
" "You needed more looking after
man tne otners," sne explained. "You
had no one else."
Man's Inborn dependence on the ma
ternal love of a good woman conquered
Mr. Trlmmerth. "Sedalla," he begged,
"will you take care of me always?
Will you marry me?" Sedalla smiled
but t.he also blushed. "Perhaps," she
salr. "If you'll promise to wear the
coat I tell you to."
Mr. Trlmmerth suddenly sat down

THE SULTAN'S APPEARANCE.
Ooorgo DoryB, u member of the
Youiib Turkish party -who has writ
ten "Tho Real Abdul llamld," a book
which hus attracted great attention In
Kurope, describes Abdul Hamld as ho
looks today, old, feeble, hrlvelled,wltli
a face that shows all the workings of
ovll cunning and abject terror, says
Eugene P. hyle In Everybody's Maga
zine. He Is but 50 years old, hut the
changes since his ascension to the
throne twenty-five years ago are only
partly due to time. Ills Jaws are
heavy to brutality. The cheek bones
bulge as from a death's head. An ugly
wiry beard Is mottled from dark brown
to a rusty red, due to shiftless dyeing.
His emaciated pallor Is heightened by
the ungainly fez that covers his bald
ness. Tho nose Is that of a vulture.
The upper Up, hidden under his mus
tache, Is refined and cruel; the lower,
thick and sensual. Tho eyes, deep In
their sockets and half-veiled by shaggy

Tho Sultan Is distressingly thin. Hi'
lives by his nerves alone, and this In
great part explains tho many contra
dictions lu his character. The family
strain of Insanity taints his blood. He
Is a nervous monomaniac, of the perse-cuted-persecutor
type. His mania Is
the fear of death. All his powers of
mind are devoted to self-preservation,
and they aro by now monstrously de
veloped to the choking out of other
faculties. Ho detects peril hy Instinct,
though his diseased Imagination swells
It out of all proportion. He can Judge
and use men, and he Is an adept mani
pulator of all the ruses of Intrigue nnd

In Autralla there arc two earthquake
observatories, one at Sydney and an
other at Melbourne. It would have
been a great deal of money saved to
tho colony If she had had a few of
Professor Milne's Instruments several
years ago when the three cables sud
denly ceased to work and left her
completely shut off from the world.
There had been rumors of war, and
when the break occurred the Austral
ians thought fiome hostile power had
cut the cables and would soon swoop
down upon the colonies. The govern
ors called nut the mllltla and the naval
reserves to patrol the coast, and there
vas great excitement for nearly three
weeks. Business was at a standstill
until news came that It was an earth
quake, which had lowoted the ocean'a
bottom, making the hch between Java,
and Australia deeper by many fath
oms. Tho Hoor of the sea had taken
down bho cullies along with it.
