Many complaints have recently been
received by Superintendent of Police L.

an opium smoking establishment, and
that this was frequented not only by
other Chinese, but also by a number of

When the patrolmen arihed at the
place yesterday they found two young
ooys theie. As neither of them was
smolslng. they were allowed to go free.
The place was searched, and an opium
outfit being discovered, Hong was tak
en to the central station, together with
the tray containing his outfit. The lat
ter consists of a heavy, wicked looking
pipe, a small transparent Jar contain
ing opium, a number of pellets, and
several peculiar looking little metal
vials, shaped moic or less like ink
wells. Hong was In agony all afternoon, at
being separated from his opium, to the
smoking of which he is himself particu
larly addicted. He is a malevojent
looking Oriental, and :ih he tossed about
his cell, his eyes had a positively wol

This Institution was founded by the
Society of Friends, and has always
been conducted with 11 view to promot

ever, is by no means secturlan but is
intended to promote, in the highest de
gree, that sense of Individual responsi
bility which makes for true manhood
or womanhood. Having no desire to
make it anything but 11 "Small Col

to maintain that Intimacy of contact
between professor and student which
is rarely possible in a great university
and which is probably the greatest

Mrs. Mary Comey. wife of John Comey,
died nl the PIttston hospital last night
about n."0 o'clock. Deceased was "i years

The remains were taken to tho home of
The Fiohtino Blood
Lucu Baker Jerome, in Success.
T WAS A circular grass-covered plot
on the outer edge of the cemetery,
and the low stone wall surrounding
It was defaced and sunken in many
places. An oblong tablet, supporting
two monumental urns, rested in the
center, and it wns heaped high with
wreaths and blossoms, tho tribute of a
nation to its honored dead. The in-s-orlptlon
bore the name of one of the
most famous generals of the civil war,
but LurlndH Rundall, sitting idly on
tup of the rough coping, surveyed the
memorial stone with gloomy eyes. At
that moment she was wondering, as
she had wondered many times before
Pi her Iwcnty-flvo years, If life were
all that sin- had been led to believe that
idio would .Ind It. In spite of her fixed
belief In the general correctness of the
scheme of the unlver.se. she could not
refrain from thinking that there were
some things that she would have ar
ranged differently. That very morning,
in a despondent mood, she had con
fronted her cares and troubles, drawn
up before her In formidable array, and,
after a severe struggle with her com
mon sense, had finally owned herself
defeated. Usually, Luclnda was a per
son on whom the perplexities of life
sat lightly; but about every six weeks,
as she put it, she was abllged to think,
and the result was always disastrous.
It was in tills mood that, sitting there,
the fresh, strong wind, straight from
the ocean, whipping loose strands of her
blink hair from their fastenings, and
buffeting her slight figure like a live
thing, she withdrew her gaze from the
wave-washed horizon, nnd looked again
at the stone.
"Killed, while gallantly loading a for
lorn charge." she said, aloud. "That I
can understand. The heroism of the
moment, the wild charge in the glory
and blaze of battle; sudden, swift ex
tinction, exulting in the face of death,
that is a glorious way to die; but to
wear out one's life In tho tragedy of the
commonplace, one's worst foe oneself,
that is dying by Inches; it is worse It
Is a living death."
Her eyes suddenly widened as she
perceived u figure on the other side of
the mound silhouetted against the sky.
ft was that of an old man, bent and
tdiruukeu with age, but Luclnda no
ticed the square set of tho shoulders,
the attempt nt currying them well set
buck, and u general air of alert brisk
ness, which, to her observant eyes, pro
claimed him an old ox-soldler. Ho
climbed the wall stiffly, his eyes fixed
upon the sunken grave, with the flow
ers piled high above It, and the flutter
ing flags at either end. Wheeling sharp
ly, ns he reached the spot, ho stood
erect, and gave a smart military sa
lute, with a precision evidently born of
long training; then, stooping, he placed
on the grave a small bunch of dande
lions that he rallied.
Thou hu turned to Luclnda, smiling
I reckon you think this kind of
slrnuge," he said, speaking with a
Western accent, and laying one hand
tenderly un the stone, "but I've saluted
tho general every Memorial Day for
twenty years, Mhs; I've followed him
In ninny ft battle, and I don't forget:
and somehow I can't think that tho
general does, either." His shining eyes
looked across the tablet at tho girl.
"Muybe ho did you a kindness, too,
Miss','" ho asked, sympathetically, "He
did many n one In his day, I'll he
The girl Dashed a pleased look at
"General Eastwood was my uncle,"
she said, simply,
The old soldier's face beamed.
"Vour uncle, Miss?" ho said, earn
estly, "Well, I've wondered many a
day If I should ever bo lucky enough
to run across any o the general's kin;
hut my time Is getting so short now
I hut I'd about given up hoping," Ho
reached his hand Impulsively across the
grave to (ho girl.
She took It, smilingly In comprehen
sion. "I uni always glad to meet anyone
who served under my uncle," she suld,
wlnnlugly. "I huvo often heard my

eagerly. "Why, Miss, the day we made
that charge at it was hotter than
I1la7.es, and the general was in the thick
of it, and always at the front, Miss, al
ways at the front." He shook a bony
forefinger, warnlngly "Don't you for
get that. The bullets were flying like
hail, und the general was sitting on his
horse like an Iron man, and we were
plunging after him, when Dick Fallon's
horse was shot under him, and he
tumbled on the ground right alongside
of the general. Dick expected it to be
the last of him, for the cavalry was
sweeping solid over the field. Was it?
No, indeed! The general Just swooped
down on him sideways, and lifted him
across his saddle bow, and led the
charge just the same. Dick never for
got that. I've heard him tell it over
and over, and not one of those who
saw it ever forgot it, either. Oh, I tell
you, Miss," the old man chuckled, car
ried out of himself by the memory of
brave war days, and becoming loqua
cious in praise of his hero "there never
was anything could daunt the old gen
eral. He had the, real blood in him
the fighting blood, we called It. Noth
ing ever beat It yet." He turned to the
girl, , his eyes luminous with feeling,
nnd his white hair blowing in the wind.
Her gaze was fastened on the vanish
ing line of smoke from an ocean steam
er, and the old soldier looked disap
pointed. "I think." Luclnda said, slowly, her
hands unconsciously destroying the
daisies that she held, "that there arc,
perhaps, some things which, if the gen
eral had had them to endure, might
have conquered even the fighting
"Don't you believe it, Miss," began
the old soldier, stoutly, but a glance at
her downcast face chocked him, "Yes,
Miss?" he said, interrogatively.
"Yes, I do," she said, more firmly.
"There are forms of battle of which
the general had no conception. It Is so
different with a man! His life was one
of action, vivid, stirring action, and
each act was applauded by a nation.
He stood high In the estimation of men.
Ho had wealth, power and fame. Did
he ever know" she went on, stormlly
"what It means simply to exist, to
spend one's llfo In waiting, till your
youth und strength and hope are gone?
Did he over know the humiliating sen
sation of failure? Did he ever mean
well, and try hard, and have It all end
in defeat? No! he never knew these
things. Even his courage might have
given way before such overwhelming
odds as these."
The soldier's stiff features melted
Into sympathetic lines at the girl's out
burst, but his faith in his heroe was
not to be shaken.
"No, .Miss," he said, patiently. "Beg
ging your pardon, for I can see that
you must have had a hard battle your
self, to talk like this, but even nil you
soy wouldn't have niado the general
give In," His eyes met hers. "It's
harder for a woman," ho Bald, gently,
Tho girl's eyes filled at tho words,
but sho kept her head dellantly high,
"I have lost nil that I cared for In
the world," s-hn said, steadily, "and
there's only lelt me a big, empty,
starving heart, that gnaws nt me night
and day." She looked nt the brave old
face wlsttully. "Do you think that tho
general 'could havo borne that?" she
Tho old soldier felt 11 sudden queer
tightening of his throat, He looked at
tho girlish llgure In Its round bluo
Barge, then hastily rose, striking his
stick (Irmly into the gravel path. All
thn old murtlal fire and vigor were In
his bearing as he stood In front of her,
JIo felt Intuitively that It was a case
where action of somo kind was needed,
"The general would never have given
up, Miss," he almost shouted, all tho
111010 sturdily because conscious of an
unwonted tremor in his tones, which he
wantc-jl to conceal, "Never! There
wasn't anything that ho couldn't huve
borne, and anyone with lighting blood
In his veins ought to fee'l that way, too.
Anyone belonging to tho general Is Just
bound to stand by his colors!"
The girl looked up (iiicklyyher lips
parted, and her face was suffused with
uu inward glow,
He met her look directly.

"And you his blood, Miss!" he said,
reproachfully "the fighting blood."
The words stirred the gill's senses,
like a call to arms. She sprang quickly
to her feet, sweeping her long skirts
aside, and drawing her little figure to
its full height.
"You're right," she said, abruptly.
"The lighting blood does not give in.
What Is your name'.' 'Macallon?' Now,
Mr. Macallon, we're ready for the ene

the old man.who Instantly divining her
changed mood, and catching the "spirit
of excitement, swung involuntarily
around. Together they saluted tho
grave, the old and the young eyes
flashing In unison. The clear note of
a departing bugle lent color and reality
to the scene. The old man's voice iuu
vered on the all.
'"Tcntlon!" he piped, shrilly. "Eyes
