A Silk Strike Pugnacious Women.
There was great excitement among
the silk factory hands nt Patterson, New
Jersey, Wednesday. Five or six hundred
. of them are on a strike. The Hamilton
mill has shut down, and several mills
are without hands. At n meeting of the
strikers in Military Hall that day, Gus
tave Heinriehs favored returning to
work. The women attacked liim and
tore his coat. One woman threw suit
nnd pepper in his eyes. He' drew on'
empty revolver, hut was chased out of
the hall nnd pursued half n mile, hun
dreds of persons joining In the chase, it
having been reported that he liad shot a
woman. He was captured, taken before
Justice Hudson, nnd discharged. He
made a complaint against the woman
who assaulted him with salt and pepper,
and she was arrested nnd held to bail in
$500. The operatives nre determined to
stand firm and so are the employees.
A Sensible Judge.
Judge llhone, of Luzerne county, has
has called for the vouchers for the items
termed funeral expenses in a recent case
heard in the orphans' court. The amount
t of the decedent's personal estate was
l$581.82,while the expenses of burial were
'returned by the administrator at $139.75.
Dn the subject of extravagant funerals
Judge Rhone Bays : " It is not necessary
to have a pompous procession in great
length, in which figure conspicuously
waving plumes the prancing livery
steed, harnessed to finely upholstered
vehicles and a glistening silver plated
casket In which is placed the cold clay,
clothed with raiment ns costly as the
richest he wore when living. Neither is
a pile of carved marble with poetic in
scriptions set over the tomb in a con
spicuous corner lot in the city of the
dead, necessary for a Christian burial.
Have the terms grave,collln and shroud,
been forgotten by everybody t Such
parades as nre called ' fine funerals' may
gratify the vanity of the living, but no
respect for the dead demands them, and
where a decedent's estate is limited and
his debts are not paid or where he leaves
a family of helpless children, the ex
penses of such burials will not be allow,
ed out of his estate. Those who con
tract for nnd enjoy such luxuries must
pay for them themselves."
A Terrible Fire.
A dispatch received late on Wednesday
night last says that a terribly destructive
fire is now raging in St. John, New
Brunswick. A telegram received early
on Thursday morning states that all the
public buildings, three principal hotels
and nil newspaper offices nre burned.
About three-fourths of the city is de

The destruction of provisions of all

Where the Turks will get Money An lin-
menso Amount ot Money Lying line.
Mr. Delaplalne,the Charge d'Afliiiresof
the United States at VIenna,furnlshes the
Department of State nt Wnshlngton the
following interesting information con
cern ing a certain remarkable war resource
of Turkey, the so-called "Treasure of
Islam." The Chelk ul Islam has recent
ly Bent a delegation of doctors of the
law to the Cherlf of Mecca, a direct de
scendant of the prophet, for the purpose
of demanding funds in defence of the
Islam faith. It Is customary on these
solemn occasions for the Cherif to assem
ble the college of the elders,charged with'
the guard of the prophet's tomb, which
will decide upon the appropriate sum to
be furnished to the Sultan from the
Treasure of Islam, In order to aid him
in the wnr ngalnst Russia. This treasure
is formed from those annual offerings of
the pilgrims which are accumulated in
the Kasbah of Mecca. These sepulchres
which serve as offertory chests, are plac
ed within the Court of the Mosque.
Each pilgrim daily casts into one of
these a coin as an offering, which con
stitutes the alms prescribed by the Ko
ran as one of the elements of the merit
of the pilgrimage, which every Mussul
man should make at least once in his
life-time to the tomb of the prophet. Ac
cordingly every year about one hundred
thousand pilgrims go to Mecca, who so
journ there a month, mnd consequently
a sum of at least three millions of francs
is annually received in these offertory
chests. Every pilgrim deposits, in fact
an offering, varying In amount, accord
ing to his means, but which on the aver
age may he estimated as equivalent to
five francs at least for every day, con
sidering that there are rich Musselmen,
whose offerings attain even the amount
of 100,000 francs during their pilgrimage.
It results thereby that the Cheuf of Mec
ca receives in the average the value of
15,000,000 francs in annual oll'erlngs.
One of the ollertory chests was opened
during the period of the Russo-Turkish
wnr in 1S08. Several large sums were
withdrawn, but it was afterwards again
closed. A second chest was opened in
1824, during the Crimean war, but the
third has not been opened since 1415,
during a period of 402 years. Inasmuch
ns the annual concourse of pilgrims has
rarely fallen below one hundred thous
and, it is conjectured that, with most
liberal allowances, the accumulation of
money in the last named offertory chest
cannot be less than 250,000,000 francs,
and it is fully believed that the total
amount of the treasure of Islam will ex
ceed 000,000,000 francs,and may even at
tain a much higher sum.
Death Caused by Boys.
Tuemont, Pa., June 18. After quit

Frank Whittemore, a painter, met
Miss Alice Carter, a wealthy young
heiress, in New York a year ago, and
they became betrothed. They eloped
and went to live in West Hoboken.
Several weeks ago Mrs. Whittemore
gave birth to a child, and the father of
the young wife relenred,and sent a check
for $1,000 to his daughter to fit up her
household. On Monday a week young
Whittemore procured the mony on the
check and quit home. The forsaken
wife told the story of her husband's
abandonment to her father, and hewent
to Hoboken. On Tuesday she packed
up her furniture and started for New
York. At the Hoboken ferry Dr. Talson,
whom Mr. Whittemore owed a bill
of $20, had Constable Francis levy on
the furniture, and it was stopped. The
father and daughter were taken to the '
police station, and Mr. Carter was forced
to pay the money.
A Drave Girl Shoots a tramp.
A murderous tramp nt Great Falls, N.
H., met more than his match the other
evening in the 20 years old servant girl
of 1). B. Dennlson. Tramp entered the
house while the fiuijily were abseitt, and
ordered the girl to deliver the money
and other valuables on pain of death.
She begged for her life and offered to go
up stairs and get the money. This ho
permitted, but she procured Mr. Den
nlson 's revolver lnstend, nnd when her
visitor showed no inclination to obey
her commands to leave tho house she
fired, and the ruffian fell. The other
tramps immediately appeared and car
ried off their groaning comrade, nnd no
trace of them has yet been found.

ZW Summer life at Newport, R. I., is
thus summed up by a correspondent : "It
consists chiolly in bringing city manners,
habits and customs into the country. The
exclusives do not bathe in the ocean ; they
have salt water brought to them in the bar
rel. In this way they avoid the heat and
sun and ' the hotel people' who visit the
beach, and holp to support the deserving
persons who carry about the water barrels.
They do not walk or row, they seldom
sail, and if they fish they hire men to bait
their hooks for them. They strictly ob
serve all the formalities and ceremonies of
city life, drive out in the afternoon, dress
themselves two or three times a day, and
in the evening the ladies ciiticise each
other and talk about their clothes. A more
useless, and, all things considered, a more
tiresome exercise could not well be imag
ined. But then it is fashionable, and costs
a great deal of money."
, C3""TA novel scene occurred as tho western
train was leaving the Montreal depot, a
few days ago. It appears that a marriage
took place four years ago between a young
man from a western city and a handsome
young lady residing in that city. The
couple resided peaceably there for some
time with the young lady's mother, until
the mother of the young man arrived in
town and persuaded him to go home again.
The wife and mother-in-law hearing of his
contemplated departure hastened te the
Bonaventure depot just a few minutia be
fore the departure of the train. A scene
then occurred. The young man was held
firmly by bis mother, and notwithstanding
all the efforts of his wife he was uuable to
move. The conductor put an end to the
scandal by entering the car and ordering
those without tickets to leave the train.
The young wire was carried from the car
fainting, and the train proceeded with her
unfaithful husband nnd bis triumphant
