REV. WILLIAM FUTCHEY Gin
UONfc) has milled a rich gift to
the literature Illustrating types
of Atiici'lcan life. His hook, "Those
Black Diamond Men," Just published by
Ithe Fleming II. Jtevcll coinpany, has a
unique value, tor It contains character
Kkctches absolutely true as found In the
unthracltc coal regions. A man of cul
ture nnd unustlal depth of spiritual ex
perience, he has withered these Impres
sions before the strangeness, the pathos
nnd the tragedy became commonplace
because of familiarity. He has written
thpc down with a certain freshness and
spontaneity that no other Interpreter
of conditions In our region has ap
proached. He has touched deeply the
springs of life underground and has
'been close enough to the "other half"
that, like Jacob Rlls, ho has listened to
the heart beats and found that they am
His hook desprves rank with Jacob
Hilt' "How the Other Half Lives," with
jltalph Connor's ' "Black Itock" and
'"Sky Pilot," with "Wyckoirn "Work
ers." indeed, in some respects it ranks
above any of these, for somehow, woven
Into the dull fabric, the rough and
darkened warp and woof of the unlove
ly caskets where his diamonds are
, found is a subtle personal touch, a ten
vder humor, a lack of bitterness that
none of these other books possesses to
such a marked degree. The sarcasm Is
keen and It cuts, but there, too, Is the
tender healing of an understanding
that does not condemn harshly but
While the book is not in any sense a
novel, the characters appear again and
again in succeeding chapters and grow
dear and familiar. There is a clergy
man with strenuous Ideas and a degree
of muscular Christianity which he finds
useful. There are English, Irish, Welsh,
Hungarian and Polish typos easily rec
ognized and real. There Is a sweet girl
with a mission to go and preach the
gospel in China, but who finds her
heathen along with her love at her own
hearthstone. There are woeful trage
dle and also bright glimpses of happi
ness within the covers of this volume,
but chiefly the stories arc tinged with
irrepressible sadness that must hover
over the spot where tragedy is ever the
The fierce, hot resentment ngainst the
curse of the laboring" man liquor is
everywhere predominant. It is such
resentment as a man must have felt In
his heart who has been baffled at every
step by this menacing enemy, whenever
he has struggled to lift his fellows.
Another element prominent in the
scries of stories, Is the exceptional sense
of Justice which the author shows. He
touches upon most of the grievances of
the mine workers, the daily peril to
life, sulphurous culm dumps, the defec
tive condition of powder, the rapacity
of 'corporations, and yet he turns to the
otlier side of the question and shows
the kindness of heart, the generosity
and consideration of the individual op
erator, boneath a gruff exterior, the
true ethics of strikes and the position
little understood which the foreign
speaking laborer occupies.
While the colors In which the pic
tures are drawn seem in the main som
bre, there Is a certain vein of delicious
humor running through the entire book
that lends an infinite charm. The de
scription of the scene where the iras
cible president of a great railway
awarded fifty dollurs to nn Importun
ate Italian woman for the destruction
of her goat on the railroad, all because
the president did not understand her
lingo and thought she was bewailing
the loss of a cow, Is irresistible funny.

more than passing amusement. "His

To select one story which contains
humor and pathos and almost tragedy,
mingled with the tenderest sentiment,
It is only necessary to read "A One
Jlule Man." The description of the In
cident where the vlsitlnjr coal dealers,
large, pompous men, were obliged to
climb eleven hundred feet out of a
mine whose machinery had broken
down, is highly dramatic.
The style of the writer throughout Is
scholarly and clever. The dialect Is
natural and not wearisome. The situ
ations nro not exaggerated and the
sentiment is wholesome and optimis
tic. Mr. Gibbons has done something
for the anthracite regions that no other
writer has ever approached.

THE CITY PRINTING.
94,000 of the Appropriation Already
Expended Emergency Appro
priation Must Be Passed.
Over $1000 of the $,',000 appropriated
for city printing for the current fiscal
year has already been expended, and
the year not yet one-quarter over. Un
less an emergency appropriation is
made shortly, It will bo necessary to
crcnte 11 deficiency In this account.
As Is generally known, tho "ripper"
bill provides that all ordinances passed
by councils shall be printed In full In
the official city newspapers. Not a
single ordinance passed last year was
so printed. The opinion having been
expressed that all these ordinances
verc technically illegal as a conse
quence of this omission, a provision
was Inserted In the genernl printing or
dinance passed some time ago, provid
ing that nil last year's ordinances
should be printed.
Only s. bout enc-quarter of the meas
ures passed last year have been printed
in conformance with the provis
ions of this ordinance, yet the
printing appropriation has been nearly
exhausted. City Clerk Lavelle esti
mates that it would require nearly $25,-
000 to pny for tho printing of last year's
ordinances and for the regular printing
for tho cm lent year.
A new printing ordinance introduced
In select council last Thursday night
repeals the ordinance passed some
mouths ago nnd makes no reference to
the printing of last year's ordinances.
It provides, however, for the printing
of all ordinances passed this year. City
Clerk Lavelle says yiut as soon as the
$.".000 appropriation Is exhausted, he
will not have any more ordinances
"I will create no dcflcleuy." he said
yesterday. "After that $.'i,000 Is ex
pended, none of this year's ordinances
or last year's will be printed, unless
an emergency appropriation Is made."
He believes that even if no more of
last year's ordinances arc printed, It
will require over $10,000 to pay for the
regular printing for the current year.
Beresford Attacks British.
By Kv-hiiiio V.'ni' from The A--01 la'tcil Press.
London, June 20. During the discus
sion of the navy estimates in the house
of common:; today. Rear Admiral Lord
Charles Beresford, Conservative, scath
ingly criticized the deficiencies of the
navy. He declared the whole admiral
ty system was rotten and led to great
extravagance and the general want of
efficiency of the navy, on which de
pended the existence or tho empire.
That was the judgment of all the com
missions of inquiry and had been
proven to bo a fact. Every increase In
the number of ships and every im
provement in them had been tho re
sult of outside agitation. As the re
sult of such agitation, tho British
Mediterranean ileet was now a fourth
stronger than It was a year ago.
It was remarkable. Lord Beresford
added, that both army and navy offi
cers were compelled to threaten to re
sign In order to get things righted,
Great Britain had only 20,000 naval re
serves, instead of the requisite 80,000,
and tho engine-room department were
thousands of men short. As to arma
ment, both the United States nnd
France possessed superior guns. Blun
ders would continue until a separate
business board was appointed at tho
admiralty and was made responsible
for the efficiency of the fleet. Treas
ury control was fatal to efficiency. As
an instance, the speaker pointed out
the case of .Sir William Vernou-Hnr-eourt,
Liberal, who, when he wns chan
cellor of tho exchequer, put his pen
through tho appropriation for ammuni
tion supplies after tho guns had been

BIG GAME IN MEXICO.

From the Mexican Herald.
A civil engineer leccntly returned
from the hacienda of Jlmulco in Coa
hulla, an immense property containing
over 2,000 square kilometres, tells some
stirring tales of shooting wild game.
Antelopes abound, but great cure is
necessary in approaching these wily
creatures, owing to their habit of al
ways placing one or two on guard
while the rest of the herd is feeding.

Not long since a party of young men
were hunting the javall, or wild hog,
and, coining up with a number, one of
the hunters succeeded In killing one and
dismounted to secuio it. As he ap
proached his prey a dozen or more
javali that were hiding In tho tall grass
attacked him ferociously, and one fast

hanging on like grim death. The oth

HOW THE LIVES OF OTHERS
INFLUENCED MR. HUB
An Interesting Account of the Man
ner in Which Circumstances
Grouped Themselves in
Mr, Hubbard wns helpless from nn
attack of paralyslB and utterly dis
couraged. Ho had been getting worse
and worse, month by month, First It
miulo him unable to work, then ho
could not walk, then he could not even
raise a hand to feed himself ho could
not move any part of his body except
IiIh head. But, unknown to him, all the
time of his altllctlon, circumstances had
been arranging themselves for his re
covery. It all hinged on tho moving of a Mrs.
Smith 'from New York to Slstersvllle.W.
Va. She had been cured of paralysis
and it wus through her suggestion that
Timothy Cushion, a neighbor in her
new home, was cured of a similar afflic
tion. Then, upon his recommendation,
a Mr. Slpher, a fellow-workman who
was paralyzed, took the same course
of treatment nnd It cured him.
"I heard of Hlphor's case," said Mr.
Hubbard, who lives not far from SIs
tersvllle, "and my son took me over to
see him. It gave me new courage to
hear him toll how readily he found re
lief, for I had given up hope of over
being able to move again. I was per
fectly helpless. When I was first taken
I was treated by three physicians, one
of them a specialist, but I got worse
Instead of better. I could both walk
and feed myself when I began doctor
ing with them but dually I could move
nothing except my head. The doctors'
medicine caused my stomach to pain
me a great deal; it didn't help me a
bit and, as I said, I got discouraged.
"Then, after I saw Mr, Slpher and
he told me that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Palo People had accomplished such
a wonderful cure In his case as well as'
for Mr. Cushion ami Mrs. Smith, I de
cided to take tills remedy myself. In
about three weeks after beginning with
the pills I noticed a change for the
better. Now I can walk and get around
all right. Slpher and Cushion are able
to bo out at their work as oil-well drill
ers, and Mrs. Smith, I am told, is as
spry a lady as there is In Slstervllle."
Mr. Henry J. Hubbard lives in Wit

Pink Pills for Pale People, the remedy
