BX MEN WITH CI.IBB AND PISTOLS ORDERED TIIK .1 AWAT.
The lift, which was kept at the bot
tom of the shaft, when not in use, ear
ned Hendricks up at precisely nine
twenty-eight the next morning. He
had five men with him and they all
got undisturbed into the signal room.
He secured the floor and then waited
at the little western window a mo
ment until the half hour had expired.
There was evidently sonic kind of sig
nal made from the wood, for he said:
"All right. You are to wait here and
guard the entrance until you hear
from me." He then opened the door
with a latch key carefully and stepped
into the passage, closing the door after
Calicot and Mrs. Hendricks were in
the northern parlor, used as a break
fast room. As Hendricks approached
the door through the passage he heard
the voice of one of the maids singing
in the kitchen. He stopped at the
door with his hand on the knob. He
heard the singing changed suddenly to
a cry of surprise and the floor vibrated
slightly as if several persons had run
"VOC, MY DEAR Sill, AHK MY IMUHO.VF.R."
to the windows. Almost at the same
moment he heard the sound of horses'
feet and he knew that the house was
surrounded. Then lie opencil the door
suddenly and stood in the room.
Calicot, who wasfaeingthe entrance,
had risen suddenly and was standing
in an attitude of defense. Mrs. Hen
dricks, with admirable self-possession,
half turned with a look of reproach.
"I'ray be seated," said Hendricks.
"What we have to say need not disturb
the air of tete-a-tete," and lie pulled,
as he advanced to the table, one of the
chair with him.
Calicot remained standing.
"I beg that you will be seated," said
Hendricks with politeness.
Calicot strode to the window and
pulled the curtain aside. He saw the
mounted men on the lawn. Then ho
dropped the curtain and came back U:
"There is a lady present," said Hen
dricks. "There is no necessity in our
interview for her retirement."
Calicot sat down. He was looking
at Hendricks with curiosity.
"In the little conflict between us,"
said the latter, "I assure you, sir, that
if you hail made it plain that you rep
resented the inevitable, I would have
(gracefully succumbed. That is all I
ask of you now. There are twenty
five men guarding the house and a suf
flcient force inside. You, my dear sir,
are my prisoner."
"You are certainly," said Calicot,
"the most extraordinary man I evel
met. It requires brains as well aa au

not with crime, but war. I am not a j
malefactor, but a revolutionist. So

advance your position and your lan
guage to that point without waiting
for events. At present you are my
prisoner. I intend to hold you. There
ought to be no go<>d reason why your '
captivity should b<• uncomfortable."
Calicot smiled. "You fight the in- ;
evitable with sophistry," he said. >
"There is but one other means after
that. It is violence. Ido not accept
your argument and I do not recognize
your authority, but I am deeply inter
ested in your hallucination."
"Enough," replied Hendricks. "May
I ask you to give up yotir arms?"
"I give you my word as a gentleman
that I never carry any and am unarmed
at this moment," said Calient
"Then pardon me a moment," said
Hendricks. "You will have to ac

and spoke to one of his men. He
thought, us he turned to come hack,
that both Mra. H'*ndrlcks and Calicot
made a motion of their bodies as il
they had leaned forward to sjiealt to

"Certainly not voluntarily," replied
Calicot. "I am an officer of the law.

He- then made a bow to Mrs. lien
dricks and walked to the signal room.
After a consultation with the gen
eral Hendricks followed him. The
shaft was open and the lift was wait
ing' in the room. It was impossible to
see the mechanism of the floor for the
window had been darkened by a closed
shutter. Justus the two men stepped
iato the elevator the sharp report of a
rifle rang out clear upon the air and
was almost immediately followed by
at least half a score of answering
The two men in the elevator looked
at each other.
"That is the return of your lieuten

"Yes." replied Calicot. calmly. "He
is a brave fellow and a warm friend."
"Let us hope that there is no blood
shed," '-aid Hendricks, "and that we
I shall enjoj' his society."
It was this year that the new phase
of imported socialism came into view
with the "Industrial Junta," as it wai
called. The branches had been or
ganized secretly and it was known
that the mischievous order lmd its
lodges in all the states. Public atten
tion was not however awakened to the
power of the "Junta," until the St.
Mary's riota occurred. St. .Mary's, at
one time a mere suburb five miles from
Paducah at the confluence of the Ten
nessee and the Ohio, had five years be
fore become an important manufactur
ing place owing to its purchase by an
s Er il-h syndicate and the erection
i there of enormous workshops. The
principal industry was the manufac
t: re of cutlery and all kinds of copper
tools, hardened by a new process,
equal to the finest steel. The same
syndicate had purchased an enormous
tracK of copper-mining land on Lake
Superior and communication was di
rect and inexpensive by mean* of the
Mississippi. This English company had
obtained the secret process of harden
ing copper, so it was said, from a poor
American mechanic. At the time of
the trouble with the men, there were
over ten thousand operatives employed
at St. Mary's. The place may have con
tained five thousand other inhabitants
but all the stock holders lived abroad.
It was a town of factories and chim
neys and, save at the outlying end of
Its main thoroughfare where one of
the directors and several of the super
intendents had erected handsome
houses, its residences were cottages of
unpretentious form. It had a bank
also owned by the company; a free li
brary, several churches and a public
hall called "The Forum." The trouble
between the company and the work
men was at the start a trifling one and
would have been adjusted by the work
men themselves if it had not been for
outside interference. "The Junta"
had had its eyes on this point for a
year and resolved to make it the start
ing point of its socialistic upheaval, ft
succeeded in getting its own men into
the works and disaffecting a largo
number of operatives. A strike of one
branch occurred early in the year and
the company sent men from England
to take their places. It was not proven
that they came under contract, but no
one doubted it. In six months they
had taken on three hundred men
guardedly and singly, and, having dem
onstrated to their own sath faction the
feasibility of importing their lal>or in
a surreptitious manner, undertook a
colni/.ing scheme. They put up live
hundred cottages on a large tract and
let the property and invited immigra
tion, disclaiming any desire to get
workmen. It was not till a reduction
of v. ages took place and another st rike
occurred that the colonisls proved to
be able to take the place of the dis
charged men who were, In the mnin,

Marr's in paying off the indeVedne
>n the improvement scheme. He ap
peared to think it would have H good
effect. On the night after the strike
three of the new houses built bv the
company were burned. The striking
workmen were charged with the in
cendiarism. but den»l it. The next
day there were three or four thousand
men out of work in the town and a
very angry feeling.
Director Matlock injudiciously ev
pres-sed'au opinion about the origin it
the fire which made the l>etter class of
striking workmen indignant, and the j
sent a delegation to the office of tlie
works to get a statement from him di
rectly, and they encountered at the
door of the office six men, armed with
slubs and pistols, who ordered them
away. An altercation ensued. Two
of the delegation were knocked down
and one had bis skull fractured. The
remainder of the men went back for
reinforcements and in an hour there
was a mob of five hundred men l>efore
the office. They demanded that the
perpetrators of the outrage should l>e
handed over or they would enter the
building by force and take them. Mat
lock refused to give them up. Tlie
mob then broke into the office, seized
the men and took them into the stri t.
where they were beaten to death. The
director then sent for the sheriff at

Paducah and telegraphed to the gov
ernor that the English company's
property was in danger and he de
manded the protection of the ; trite.
At this juncture a large number of
the remaining workmen who had
taken no part in the strike protested
against the action of the director and
went out with the others.
The whole town was yuv in u fer
ment of excitement, and that t.i'rht
Mr. Matlock began to la! e tiiea-.tires
to have his gold transferred.
The next day an event occurred
which is unprecedented in the history
of strikes. In order to understand it
In its extraordinary details, it is neces
sary to explain the topography of St.
'Die town i-> built on the fir ! and
second of the natural terraces and cov
ers in a scattered way an area of per
haps three square miles. To tlie south
west and overlooking the town is
what looks like a portion of » third
dud larger terrace, but which is tlie
level of a long stretch of tableland
that extends south and west with a
steady fall for fifteen or twenty miles.
It is a poor and sparsely inhabited
country covered with scrub oak and
gum trees and answer# in many re
spects to the southwestern land of
Kentucky which is still called tho
"Barrens." There are few roads and
these are very bad. All local travel
skirting this region follows the
Clark river on the lino of the I'adticah
railway. It is not at all inaccessible
from St. Mary's. It is simply uninvit
ing. About a mile out there is an old
house standing half hidden in the gum
trees and brush near the one road. It
was built ten years before by a man
who manufactured potash and tannin
from the oak stumps and is said to
have done quite a business there in a
drudging way. About six weeks be
fore the troubles broke out at St.
Mary's the place was hired from an old
negro into whose possession it had
fallen by a man who gave out that he
was going to fit it up for the manufac
ture of emery paper, a great deal of
which was used at St. Mary's and ma
terial for which had been found in a
crude state somewhere in the neigh
borhood. He had been receiving his
stock of machinery and implements
over the Paducah road.
On the morning to which reference
has been made, St. Mary's was in a
very demoralized condition. The news
had gone out over the country and
hundreds of strangers had poured in
across the Ohio and from Louisville
and Cairo. It was expected by every
body that a collision would take place
between the workmen arid tho colony
which the English company had
planted on the bank of the river. The
sheriff of the county had arrived, but
the governor had declined to interfere
at the present stale of affairs.
Such was the condition of matters
when at nine o'clock, to the astonish
ment of everybody, a regiment of in
fantry, one thousand strong, in full
marching order and armed with maga
zine guns, made its appearance at tlie
edge of the town on the Poducnh rail
road. and came down the main street
as far us the bank in fine order, pre
ceded by a drum corps of four pieces.
The astonishment and excitement at
this sudden invasion were increased ten
fold by the banner which spread out to
the morning breeze, and which had
inscribed on it legibly: "I'irst Hattal
ion American Workingmen. No Tyr
anny of Money. No Coercion of C'api
Where the regiment had come from,
how far it had inarched or what
were its intentions, no ODD knew. Hut
it did not take long tor the rumor to
form and fly that it was a worklng
iuau's regiment, and would not take
the side of the employers.
When it had reached the Httle
square where the hank stood it was
drawn up. A skirmish line was
thrown out, pickets stationed and the
crowd forced back.
The colonel and his staff then went
into the bank. The disposition of the
men in the street was such that access
to the bank was impossible, and us the
doorway was on a level wit h the street
it was impossible for the crowd to see
what was going on, save that there
was a constant fluctuation In the
ranks of the men.
The regiment stood there quite two
hours and a half. In the meantime
there was great commotion at tho
company's works. The sheriff set off
in a carriage with Mr. Matlock, fol
lowed by half a score <>f deputies to
reach the bank, but were stopped by
the pickets. The officer protested and
threatened, but in vain. When asked
if the governor had sent them, the
►oldier* replied: "You must talk to
tin? colonel, but you cannot pass the
lines at present."
"If the colonel desires to protect the
bank, he will confer with me," said
"I don't know what his orders tire,"
said tho Mildier. "Better wait till he
calls on you at the works."
The sheriff, in high dudgeon, then
rushed to the telegraph office. It Is an
hour before he gets an answer from
the governor at Lexington and it is:
"Have not authorized use of troops—
raustbc mistake about regiment. What
do you mean?"
Then followed r evcraH'f the absurd
t.st of di patches.
"No mistake."says the sheriff "Urg
liucnt, otio thousand strong, armed
with relating rifle»."
"Ins!x>--iole." -~tys the governor
"Vour fears or your condition has
made yon wild. There is not such a
regimental formation in the state, if

Then Matlock corroborated the
"Regiment of arme i men in posses
sion of the bank. Must have the pro
lection of tho tato at once. The sher
iff is helplesw"
To this the ' ivernor still increau
l'j-asiy replies: "Regiment must have

"Impossible to tell was the answer.
"No one knows how it got here. It
is drawn up on Main street at p -esent.
Have failed to communicate with
After some delay, the governor sent
"Will arrive in the morning with
Adjt. Gen. Luscomb. Do nothing till
I get there."
While this was goingon an hour was
lost and it was three o'clock. At half
past three o'clock the regiment was
moved from the bank to the vicinity of .
the company's works. It proceeded in
line open order and was cheered along
the .route by the people. A strong
guard was left at the bank anil no one
allowed U> cßkr.
On the company's common it was
again drawn up—a strong encircling
line of pickets thrown out and the fol
lowing note sent about five o'cli>ck to
"Sir:—The first batallion of the
workingmen's advance guard will pro- j
tect property until the state takes pos
session. I shall encamp my men on
the outskirts until to-morrow. Let the
citizens retire to their homes till that
After several attempts to see the j
colonel, the sheriff sent a communica- j
tion to him:
"Sir: —Will you inform the authori- j
ties of this county by what right you |
invade this state. As the legally con- 1
stituted officer of the county, I demand !
♦.hat you appear before me and explain
jour conduct under penalty of arrest."
To this the colonel made no answer.
It was six o'clock in the evening
when the regiment was marched to an
open tract on the terrace
overlooking the town: strong guards
were thrown out in all directions and
apparent preparations made for going
into camp. As there was nothing for
the town to do but wait the arrival of
the governor in the morning, it slowly
quieted down. The camp tires of the
military burned in a long row on the
far terrace. The regular beat of the
drum was heard far into the night,
which was an unusually dark one, and
at twelve o'clock all was still.
But as soon as it was light the
streets were thronged. There were
the fires on the terrace smoking as if
with preparations for breakfast and
the white tent of the colonel could be
plainly seen. The early train brought
in a crowd of idle men, but the rail
road officials denied having seen any
As soon as the day was fairly arrived
crowds began to make their way to
the edge of the camp. The guard had
been withdrawn from the bank in the
night and at seven o'clock Matlock re
ceived word that the regiment hail dis
appeared. He went immediately to
the bank with the sheriff. At the same
time the news of the disappearance
spread like wildfire. Crowds over-ran
the camping ground, but not a sign of
the soldiers could l»e found except the
smouldering fires, the remaining tent
and the strong smell of the trodden
grass, with here and there a dropped
fragment of clothing—a cartridge or a
piece of food.
Then it was that the director dis
covered that all the specie hail been re
moved from the bank. A great crowd
had gathered round the entrance. He
got upon a chair and in an excited
manner conveyed the information. It
was received with incredulous jeers,
cries of "Served you right. We don't
believe it. Vou brought the soldiers,
etc," and the wildest excitement
The sheriff was paralyzed and lost
his head. He sent telegrams to Louis
ville and ('.tiro culling on the author
ities to arrest all soldiers in blue shirts
and duck trouSers armed with Spencer
rifles. He arrested the agents at the
Paducah railroad and held them fo*
collusion. Armed parties were sent
out on the highways and discovered
nothing but straggling men drawn to
the town by the news.
Every other subject was now
swallowed up in the robbery of the
bank, and upon the arrival of the gov
ernor and his adjutant in the after
noon, there ensued a scene of In
credulous indignation and fussy of
ficialism. The adjutant, an old-time
veteran with purely Kentucky prej
udices anil Kentucky dignity, immedi
ately framed a theory that there had
liecn a raid from southern Indiana,
and was for calling upon the governor
of that state to make good the loss and
to return the raiders for punishment.
In Louisville, Cairo and Cincinnati,
the most extraordinary accounts were
published in the papers. One of the
sheets announced in its head lines:
"The English syndicate ut St. Mary'#
makes awuy with a million and a hall
of money belonging to the working
A paper in Louisville announced thai
Kentucky I'ad been invaded by an army
tit Indiana free-hooters, and its head
lines were startling. "Are we to have
another civil war?" they asked.
"Shall an invading army desolate
Kentucky while our apathetic officiali
sre dickering with the bloated barons?
Let there be a call to arms."
One fact alone was clear to the
people of St. Mary's. The money and
the regiment had disappeared together.
That the astouiHhwig circumstance
did not at the time betray to tho coun
try some of the real facts was owinu
to the muddle which the Incompetent
Mr. Matlocka.id the pig-headed shcrifJ
and governor had produced in the
minds of the people. There was a :
widespread suspicion among the work- I
ingmen that the Miperintendcut was ic
some way implicated in the removal
of the gold, and nothing could eradi
cate from the governor's lusad the no- 1
tion that tho regiment was an exag
erated ruse which had been brought
about by a descent of Invading Villain*
from southern Indiana.
Hendricks had counted on this very

Here and In l-;ur*»pi-
Thotigh in this country early mar
ring's are less frequent than in Europe,
because here the occupations of wom
en are so numerous that nearly
every young woman can maintain
herself respectably by earning her
own living, while in Europe the
came cla-~s find matrimony almost
the only avenue through which
they can escape from a dependent po
sition at home, says the Boston Her
ald. It is none the less important to
know that the marriages contracted
before the parties have reached 20 are
to be regretted. The reasons are that
the offspring of women who are mar
ried before 18 inherit the imperfect
Ph ysieal development of their mother*
and do not reach mature life with
strong constitutions. The healthiest
offspring are born t-> mothers between
20 and SO. who are united to husbands
between 30 and 40, and it has been
found in Europe, whereearlv marriages
are very common, that the deaths
of children from weak constitutions
are twice as large among the children
whose mothers were under 20 years of
age as they were among the children
of mothers who were over 30. The
difference between America and Eu
rope in this matter of early marriages
is ehietty due to the way in which our
girla are able to reach out to self-sup
port after they have attained a mar
I)r. Cyrus Edson. in the North Amer
ican. gives important statistics toahow
that, although in this country the evil
of early marriages is not so great as it
might be, the number of brides under
80 who were married in New York city
in 1891 wis 2,839; in 1893 it was 5,959.
The number of grooms under 20 years
of age in New York city for that year
was 145. By far the greater number ol
brides are reported to have been 25 or
20 when they were married, which is •
healthy showing for an American city,
and New York is probably a fair
evidence for the age of brides in other
large towns nnd cities. In Hungary
the girls become women at the ago of
18, and in that country 15 per cent, of
the marriages shows the brides to be
under 20 years of age. and in England
12 per cent, art" under that age. In
America girls are practically free to
marry when they please and the fta

Philadelphia People and Their t'urtnna
Notion* of fforlal Fllglhllltf.
Philadelphians well deserve thel?
reputation for slowness. Progression
is an unknown word in the Quaker
city. The fashionable people scorn
any innovations, as they desire to con
tinue to ilo as their fathers did. When
you look upon the number of slow and
uncertain horse-cur lines and the ag
gravating speed of their cable cars,
says u Writer in the Pittsburgh Dis
patch, yon can well judge the tumpera
ment of a people who will stand by
and suffer such things. Philadelphians
are perhaps the most jn-culiar, clan
nish, unchangeable people that exist
in any city of the country. They pos
sess certain traits of character and
ideas regarding sociology, which will
probably be found still thriving and
strong by anyone going to Philadel
phia a hundred vears hence. The ef
fect of the absurd idea that the eligi
bility to soar in the mystic circles of
fashionable Quakerdom is to be de
termined by the answer to tho ques
tion whether he resides uptown or
downtown can never be appreciated
by one who is not a l'hiladelphian, or,
at least, well acquainted with that
city's social peculiarities. It causes
people to pay twice as much rental in
the downtown residence district for
houses not half as good as could be
gotten uptown, not to say anything of
the questionable pleasure of living
among saloons, groceries and shops of
all kinds. Instead of dying out, aa
one would expect it to do in this en
lightened age. this feeling regarding
the difference one's place of residence
makes upon his social standing is posi
tively becoming more bitter. This is
one of the peculiarities that Philadel
phia will retain as long as It exists.
Any attempts that have l»een made to
obliterate the dividing line have only
ended In dismal failure, leaving the
situation much worsts than before. It
seems that common sense was not dis
pensed with a very free baud in Phila
delphia. at le ast on this one point.

Our illustration represents a method
sometimes used fur securing cattle for
the purposeof dchorninf(, suggested by
W. L. Hcach, Ayrshire, la. Put the
animal in a chute or an ordinary
stanchion. The only other apparatus
nee.led is a thr.'e-eighths-ineh rope of
sufficient len r'.h and having a strong
two nn.i oue-!ialf-ineh ring at one end.
Place the cu 1 having the ring across
the head just back of the horns, pull
the ring dow u below the jaw and pass
the other end of the rope through it
Then briog the free end of the rop«
around tl:e nose and again pass it
through the ring. Drawing the rope
up tight will close the animal's mouth
tightly and present bellowing. Pull
the head down tight against the
manger and tie the rope in one of the
rings at the lower corner of the chute
shown in llie illustration. As the rope
is tied in the cut the animal's head is
pulled to one side thus giving the op
erator tlio best chance at the right
horn. When that horn has been re
, moved, tic the rope in the other ring
thus pulling the bend to that side and
giving free access to the left horn.
The figure in the left hand upper
1 corner of the illustration shows the
shape of the halter when the rope lias
been passed through the ring correctly.

NEGLECT RUINS COWS.
If > Uoo'l Milk Supply I* Wanted lood
Mum ISo iilvrn Regularly.
Writing from New Jersey a dairyman
I says: A cow giving twenty-five pounds
of milk a day while being fed at milk
j ing, fell off to a quarter of that weight
in three weeks by having the time
of feeding changed, anil being milked
by other hands. Both exerted their
special influence. But what was un
usual was the regaining the former
quantity of milk by again receiving the
former ration at milking time and be
ing again milked by the accustomed
milker. Another cow that had yielded
a large daily quantity of milk, having
greatly fallen off in her milk, was fed
at milking times, and, though milked
by the same man as formerly, regained
her usual How and quantity of milk.
The ration at milking time must have
brought the change. A large Short
horn cow owned by a milker and dis
tiller wu» fed a good, rich slop at milk
ing time every day, which causod her
to fill a large pail, so that the froth
overflowed the pail. This cow, at the
death of the milker, passed into the
hands of a neglectful party and soon
dwindled to a poor milker. The expe
rience of those owning extraordinary
milkers will benr testimony to the good
effect of lilieral feeding at the time of
milking. The family cow. generally,
is thus fed, and the average family cow
is the largest milker. The contentment
of a feeding cow causes her to give
down her milk in free and full measure.
Kind treatment, at the same time, is
paid for in milk. Cows thus managed
will, doubtless, pay a larger percentage
of animal profit than any other cows
not thus fed and treated. Many of our
best dairy cows are injured by rough
handling. ___ _
