TAKING A QUANTITY OF ON SATS.\ ROUGH Her Mind Brought to a Pitch ot sanity by the Heading of a Terrible Tragedy. In- CLEVELAND, Feb. 1.—Mrs. Anna Roth, of No. 10 Amos street, pois- oned herself and infant child Thurs- day afternoon, while in a fit of tem- porary insanity caused by a morbid concentration of mind on the Caba- lek tragedy a week ago, in which Mrs. Cabalek killed three of her children, fatally wounded two and hanged herself. Frank Roth is an industrious workman in the Mallea- ble Iron works, and is about forty. He owns his own home and has some money invested. His family consisted of his wife, Anna, a boy of ten, an infant girl and Mrs. Janas- cheak, his mother-in-law. Roth bad dinner at home on _ Thursday, at which time his wife appeared in good spirits. He had never seen anything to arouse suspicions of her complete sanity. About 2 o'clock Mrs. Roth went to a neighbor's house and got a boy of ten years,' Joseph Protiva, to accompany her to a drugstore and act as interpreter. At the drugstore she obtained a small box of \Rough on Rats,\ claiming that her house was over- run with the rodents. She was warned of the deadly nature of the compound. She sent her mother, at 4 o'clock, to a store several blocks distant for a package of yeast. Dur- ing the absence of Mrs. Janascheak Mrs. Roth mixed a lot of the poison in milk, drank a quantity and forced the babe to drink a fatal porton also. \When\ Mrs. Janascheak returned she found Mrs. Roth in spasms and the child crying as if in great pain. Several women were called in and administered ineffectual remedies. Not until 7:30 o'clock was Dr. F. C. Frankie called. He suspected poi- son and gave some antidotes, but Mrs. Roth died within thirty min- utes and the babe half an hour later. The police were notified by the neighbors, but Dr. Frankie misled them as to the nature of the case and it was not reported until Friday. Mrs. Roth was thirty-five years of age and had been married eleven years. Her husband says she was always of a cheerful disposition and they never had any domestic trouble. The details of the Cabalek case had seemed to have a horrible fascination for her. She could not read, but her husband read the story to her from a Bohemian paper. At her request he read it a second and a third time, and on several occasions she had neighbors read it again. She talked about little else for several days, and there is little doubt that the ter- rible affair turned her head and caused her to kill herself and her child. A Pension for Three Months' Men. BOSTON, Feb. 1.—At the annual encampment of the Grand Army of the- Republic, department of Massa- chusetts, Friday, a resolution was passed unanimously to memoralize Congress for legislation fixing the minimum pension for disability in- curred in service at $12 per month. By a vote of 301 to 159 the delegates to the national encampment were instructed to favor a bill granting a pension of §8 per month to every soldier and sailor who served for three months or more during the re- bellion. Tried to Starve His Family to Death. ST. CLOUD, Minn., Feb. 1.—James Zeis was sent to Luxemburg Wednes- day to bring John Zenner to this city and have him examined as to his sanity. Zeis and several neigh- bors of the unfortunate man brought Zenner to St. Cloud, but the wife and young child could not be taken away, as they had no clothes to pro- tect them, having nothing but a few rags. Mrs. Zenner was so- afraid of ber husband that shp. could hardly be induced to speak. It seems that Zenner had intended to starve his wife and child. Neighbors have taken food and clothes to the house, but he' always refused to receive them. An Ungrateful Eeporter Punished. At Ironton, O., a high-browed and intellectual young reporter for one of the city papers attended an oyster supper given by the ladies of a church society. The youth was waited upon with all the prompt- ness and fidelity due to his exalted station. His bowl of soup was full of oysters and he was charged noth- ing for it. On his departure hejwas given a paper sack full of the finest assorted cake. The young man showed his appreciation of this kind- ness by publishing the next day a half column article on \The Church Festival Oyster,\ containing all the time-honored witticisms that have been handed down to this generation on that subject. A committee of twelve young ladies waited on him at his lodgings shortly after the ap- pearance of the paper on the street, took»him into a smoke-house, tied him to a post, read the article to him and then completely deluged him with a bucketful of oyster soup that had been left from, the supper the evening before. The much abused church festival oyster is one ahead. A Good Hero for a Novelist's Pen. Sullivan Knocked Out. NEW YOEK^ Jan. 31.—John L. Sullivan, the jragilist, Friday visited a sargeon in this city for the purpose of having his arm examined. It was found that the fractured arm, which was attended to before he left the west, had been set with the palm downward, which the doctor said was exactly what should not have been done, as it should have been set with the palm upward. Sullivan threw himself upon a reclining chair while the surgeon removed the band- ages and examined his arm. The party chatted of the fight in which the member was injured. While the fighter conversed with his friends the doctor observed-Sullivan's preoc- cupation, and placed his left arm on Sullivan's forearm and the right up- on the wrist, he gave the arm a sud- den wrench, which broke the bone asunder a second time. Sullivan bounded from the reclining position with a short cry of pain and sank back upon the cushions in a dead fainting spell. Salts and other ap- plications soon brought him back to consciousness and he found his left arm reset and the palm lying up- wards. But the fighter was knocked out and became further wearied by fruitless retchings. He was straigh- tened out after a while, however, and his arm was bound in felt wad- ding and finally set in plaster of par- is. . The surgeon says it will be all right four weeks hence and will be as strong as ever. They Capture a Woman Burglar. POET ARTHUR, Ont., Feb. 1.—The Huadly gang of counterfeiters and a St. Paul detective by the name of Frank S. Dacre, who had been em- ployed some months ago by the Ca- nadian government to capture this gang dead or alive, offering him$2,0*00 and all his expenses, had a terrible fight last week. Dacre came upon the outlaws, and m the fight with them James Pearson, Thomas Matthews and Thomas Doyle were killed. The rest of the band were captured by the mounted police. Dacre, the police say, displayed won- derful strength in the light, fairly lifting one of the band in his arms and- bringing him down with Bueh force as to kill him. Dacre is only twenty-six years old, was once on the Montreal police detective force and was for five years a United States officer. BALTIMOEE, Md., Feb. 1.-—An- other startling tragedy in the shape of the shooting and probably mortally wounding of a woman burglar at six o'clock Friday morning has been enacted here, the particulars are as follows: For some time past the large wholesale grocery firm of Wagners, Iverson & Rountree have been miss- ing valuable goods from their store. Suspicion at first pointed to one of the employees, but as no positive proof could be obtained no action was taken. The depredations con- tinued and Henry C. Rountree con- cluded to remain all of Friday night in the store and see if he could not detect the burglar. Harry Af tung, the assistant book-keeper, agreed to remain with Mr. Rountree, who was armed with a breech-loading shot- gun, while Aftung had a revolver. They believed that if the thief was an outside party entrance was made only by getting through a win- dow. The belief' was strengthened by an ingenious plan of Mr. Roun- tree. He sprinkled sand over the window-sill one night and discov- ered it entirely brushed away the next morning. The night was a long and dreary one for the watchers, and as morn- ing drew near they were about giv- ing up when they heard the window raised and some one jump on the floor. It was pitch dark and Mr. Rountree rushed out from behind bags of coffee, where he was secreted, and called to the intruder to surren- der. This the party did not seem willing to do, for the intruder at- tempted' to beat a hasty retreat, whereupon Mr. Rountree raised his gun and fired at the retreating figure. There was a scream and the person dropped to the floor. As soon as lights were procured, great was the astonishment of the two watch- ers to find they had shot and prob- ably killed a woman. The police were summoned and thewoman was taken to the hospital, when 147 bird shot were extracted from her body. When the woman regained con- sciousness she said her name was Mary Jones, aged thirty-five years, and her home at 14 Eutaw court. She admitted her guilt and said the police would find a lot of groceries at her house. The goods were found there, together with a lot of forks, spoons and knives. The woman would make no further statement. FROM THE SEAT OF LAW. CONGRESS TWISTING THE BRIT- ISH LION'S TAIL.

It gave the British lion's tail a vi- cious\twist and it again refused to give the women who want to vote a change to submit the constitutional amendment on woman suffrage to the state legislatures. It is interesting to be reminded now and then that the -. American eagle can still soar, and that the fire of our revolutionary sires is not ex- tinct. The belligerent oratory of Senators Ingalls, Frye and Hale has furnished ample proof of this. The occasion was debate on the bill em- powering the president to close the ports of the United States against Canadian imports, as a measure of retaliation, in case Great Britain per- sists in violating her treaty obliga- tions by subjecting American fisher- men to indignities and outrages in Canadian waters. Senator Ingalls thought it was time to settle the fishery difficulties either by negotia- tion or by war. The measure under discussion was distinctly one of re- taliation. It was an eye* for an eye, a fish for a fish, an insult for an in- sult. Countries had been inundated with blood on less provocation. Senator Frye declared that the an- nals of history—even the Fiji Islands—might be searched without finding cases of outrages so brutal and inhumane. All these cases, he said, had been brought to the atten- tion of the British government. There was not a line in the history of England for the last 300 years that gave the slightest reason to be- lieve that in the pursuit of gain, in. the pursuit of trade, she would ever permit the right of another to stand in the way of her progress. Senator Morgan thought the law could bo enacted without blood-thirsty threats, and Senator Vest advised caution. When the cause of woman came up in the senate Tuesday, there were about a hundred ladies from all parts of the country—leaders in the wom- an suffrage movement—in the senate gallery, anxiously awaiting the re- sult. Senator Blair, of New Hamp- shire, woman's best senatorial friend, had promised to make an effort to get the question up for debate at this hour. The pet measures of sev- eral senators were in the way as un- finished business, but they .gallantly voted against their own bills in favor of the ladies. Senator Beck'was one of these. lie had intended to bring up his bill preventing members of congress from acting as attorneys for railroads, and he mentioned that a distinguished lady (Miss Anthony) had sent in for him three times the day before, and he had refused to go out to see her because he knew he would be unable to- refuse what she would ask. He knew she would ask him to waive the claims of his im- portant question in favor of hers. The women are not asking con- gress to let them vote, as congress has not that power. They ask-con- gress to agree that the following proposed amendment to the consti- tution may be submitted to the va- rious state legislatures. \The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied on account of sex. Congress shall have power, by appropriate legislation, to enforce the provisions of this article.\ Half a dozen senators made short speeches for and against woman suf- frage, and then by a vote of 34 to 16 the proposed amendment was again rejected. The disappointed ladies in the gallery repaired immediately to the Metropolitan church, where thejr opened their-nineteenth annual convention in Washington. There they discussed man in general and the lawmakers of the United States in particular in language suitable to their outraged feelings. It was sad to see Miss Anthony, that grim resolute veteran of wo- man's fight for woman, just a little discouraged. After waiting and working so hard for forty years, she acknowledged that the promised land seemed yet a long way off. She knew that woman must have all her rights in time, but there was no' tell- ing how long she would have to wait. Mrs. Shattuck, of Massachusetts, who is a fine speaker with a fine voice, thinks it will be at least twenty years before all tne women in the United States will be able to vote. She divides the women who do not want to vote into six classes: First, the predjudiced; second, the unin- formed; third, those who are afraid of their gentlemen friends; fourth, those who always shirk their duties; fifth, those who shrink from new duties because they fear their ability to do thetn well, and sixth, those who fear the influence of the ballot on immoral classes of women/ and who think there is too much voting already. She gave an eloquent account of the good women are doing in tem- perance, hr laMr : uni6BS,'iii^ J * ,t; *~ i op the dej How Grocerymen Suffer. \One of the petty nuisances we have to suffer in our line of business,\ said a grocer to a reporter, \ is the continual pilferings from our coun- ters from exposed packages'of fruits, candies, nuts, etc., which make them attractive. Now see that old man with his daughter coming in at the door. He is a regular customer and comes in almost every evening. See! No sooner does he get through the door than out goes his hand for a, small bunch of grapes. There is nothing surreptitious in the act on his part, as you will notice. He evi dently thinks he does nothing wrong and unconsciously helps himself to a small handful of some enticing mor- sel which his palate takes a fancy to almost every evening, as you see he has just done. 'Like father like son' will apply to the daughter also, for there goes the young lady, who is waiting for her father to make his evening purchases, making a bee line for the candy counter, a small bit from one tray and dip into anoth- er, until the entire circuit of the store is made. It is true that what they have eaten is of small value, but du.iing a whole day, with the hundreds of customers we have go- ing in and out, the aggregate of our losses in this very same way is much larger than you would suppose.\ Will Sue Another's Wife for Divorce. ADOPTING A SUCCESSFUL ENG- LISH CUSTOM. Supplying the New York City Gamins With a Square Meal for only A Copper. ANN AEBOE, Feb. 2.—A curious case of a man's inability to identify his own wife has\ \just come to light here. The record in the county clerk's office, shows that on Dec. 16 John Austin McHale and Harriet Bennett were married. After three days of wedded bliss the wife went to Detroit, leaving her trunk behind as security for a board bill. McHale is short, deaf and wears glasses. He has been all over the country and came to the hospital here for treat- ment. On Dec. 25 Robert Schirer and Belle Bennett were married, af- ter which Mrs. Schirer went to work in a boarding-house. After McHale's spouse left him he boarded at the house where the second bride was working, and thought that Mrs, Schirer, who waited on him, was his wife, whom she greatly resembled, but was not positive about it, as he did not live with him long enough to become thoroughly acquainted with her. The girl tried to undeceive him but when he discovered that she had a gold watch exactly like the one his wife had he was no longer in doubt, and has now made up his mind to sue for a divorce. The out- come of a divorce case in which the husband is not able to identify his own wife will be watched with much interest. Saving One Hundred Acres. A Boston man who was looking for a \spec\ in the new mineral range of the Lake Superior district found one hundred acres of desirable location held by a widow, and when he asked her price she querid: \Married or single ?\ \Married ma'am.\ \Then you can pass on. I've had two husbands run away from me and lost three children by death, and I am holding this as a bate for some- thing that, wears breeches and will call me darling.\ Didn't Like a Baldheaded Baby. Angel Darling—\Mamma where did baby tome from?\ Fond Mother—\Papa bought him in the market.\ Angel Darling—\Why didn't him div' ten cents more and dit one wif hair on?\ Why His Men Struck. \It vhas all owing to some strikes in my shop,\ explained a Wisconsin wagon-maker who had gone to the wall. \Then your men struck?\ \Eafery one of 'em, and dot's what ruined me.\ \What did they want?\ \Vhell I doan' pay them for three months, und dey shnmp on me for der money. I doan' haf it und I vhas gone oop like some baloons.\ A Civil Serviee Reform. in \Joe how did you get along the civil service examination?\ \Oh to thunder with it. The first question they asked me was how many bushels of turnips will a! bin of thirtv cubic feet contain?\ - S&!S1 « I'A^K \Well did you answer it? : \Gosh no. I'm. no fooL g§ k Some other fellow would have then asked where the bin was or would have skirmished around a ten acre lot for the turnips.\ . The weather is as changeable as a cheap politician and as unreliable as a $7. gold watch. Astronomers are con ysj;u%- A New York reporter tells the fol- lowing story of a commendable en- terprise recenly started m the metropolis: \Giv' us a cent, mister, for to git a lunch.\ The reporter had for some time bten cognizant of a tugging at his overcoat. Looking down-in response to the hail, he saw a diminutive street arab, with a package of papers under his arm, who repeated, when he found that he had succeeded in attracting the reporter's attention, \Won't you giv' us a cent, sir, for a lunch?\ \You can't get a lunch for a cent,\ said the reporter. \Yes said he, triumphantly pointing across Ann street to a lit- tle red booth. \Pork and beans and coffee an' a big hunk of bread.\ \All for one cent?\ \Cert: try it on yourself if you don't believe it, or ask any of the fellers.\_ Handing the lad a cent, the repor- ter stepped aside to note the result. \Hey Pikey!\ said the recent ap- plicant, as he went across Ann street at a bound, \ketched another suck- er.\ As the reporter had reason to be- lieve that he was the \sucker\ re- ferred to, he determined to investi- gate and went over to the red booth. There was a neatly dressed man in- side, and upon the visitor placing a cent before him and asking for a lunch the individual handed out a plate of pork and beans, a cup of coffee and what the gamin had des ignated as \a big hunk of bread. In response to an inquiry as to. how it was possible to supply so much for so little, the reporter was told to apply at No. 125 Madison street. Meanwhile a large number of youthful spectators had crowded about the booth. The beans were excellent and the coffee better than the average served in the ordinary restaurants. As the reporter turned away the youngsters cried in chorus: \How much did he giv' yer?\ coupled with various expresions of disapproval. In a neat basement at No. 125 Madison street the visitor was cour- teously received by Mrs. Lamadrid, who is the good Samaritan through whose exertions this boon to the poor was established. \There is not much to tell,\ was the reply to the reporter's question. \The thing is not original at all. It has been in operation and with much success in London, and it occurred to me that it might be made a suc- cess in this city, where the need is very great. I charge one cent for a satisfying meal, simply for the rea- son that the recipient may not feel that it is charity. It costs more than that, but not much more, as we systematize it. Come out in the kitchen and I'll show you.\ She led the way to a roomy kitch- en in the rear of the front basement, and here was a large kitchen range on which were huge boilers filled with coffee, an ample oven, from which had just been withdrawn ap- petizing pans of pork and beans, while an attendant was busy cutting up huge loaves of bread into the\big hunks\ which had excited the admir- ation of the newsboy. \Itdosn't cost much,\ said Mrs. Lamadrid. \Very much less than you might suppose.\ \You are simply the almoner of the bounty of the charitable?\ \No. All that has been done I have done at my own expense, and I have been able to plant a stand at Ann street and Park Row, one at Duane street and Park Row and one at Bayard street and the Bowery. If I can get permission from the aldermen I will have ten more stands on city property and will maintain them all the year round, giving the poor in summer oat meal and milk or nee or something of the kind.\ \Then you have no society at your back ? Seeing the placards St. An- drews on the tables\— \No I call it St. Andrews on ac- count of the eighth and tenth verses of the sixth chapter of John, where Andrew suggests the feeding of the multitude. I thought that would be a good name for it. I have no one with me and have had no one. . If any one, after coming here and see- ing my method of work, chooses to assist in it, well and good, but at present all I ask is permission' from the authorities to put up my stands. At present they are on private prop- erty—gentlemen have kindly given, me permission to erect them on their own ground.\ \Are you sure that you reach the most deserving in this way? Is i t not probable that your charity will be taken advantage of by those not worthy?\ \To some exteBt, certainly. I; can't help that; but a t the same time I am certain that no one who nee^ deserving. The men we place in charge-are discriminating, and so far as may be they see to it that we reach the class we aim to benefit— the very poor. At any rate,\ con- tinued Mrs. Lamadrid cheerfully, \if we don't do much good, we can't do any harm. My husband calls it my hobby, but he is quite in sympa- thy with me in my work and is quite willing to indulge me in it. If you are going to write anything about it for the paper, say that we don't ex- pect impossibilities; we have no idea of abolishing want in a great city like this, but while we are aware that what we do will be merely a drop in the bucket,*we claim the right to contribute that drop in this way, and if ail the charitable people shall do the same to the extent -of their means the city will surely be none the worse for it.\- S., B. & N.

It is the manner in which the prodigal son of 1887 frequently returns that throws a wet blanket over the festivities of the welcome. \When he comes down the road with his hat hanging on his eaSf and his hands in his pockets; when he kicks the faithful old house dog as he lounges in at the gate; when he calls his father 'Gov'nor,' and the hired man 'Cull,' when he wants to know 'what's for dinner ?' before he has been in the house fifteen min- utes; when he^ives his elder broth- er two fingers to shake and advises him to comb the hayseed out of his hair; when he throws himself into thf;easiest chair in the house,perehes his feet on the window sill and an- nounces that he'll 'take a tub before dinner;' when he comes back with a generally forgiving air of good fel- lowship about him and tries to make all the rest of the family feel very easy and reassured—then it is, my son, that your father longs to run and meet you a great way off, and fall on your neck with a plow line and welt, you into a state of becom- ing humility and penitence by the time you are able to take off your hat to the bound boy, and crawl up the front steps to ask your brother to shake hands with you. \Good people are just as glad to- day as ever they were, my son, to see the prodigal come home, but it does rattle them a little to see him come home in a hack and ask them to pay the driver and send for his baggage.\ no. 4 720 785 7 51 8 02 8 08 8 18 8 23 8 32 STATIONS.
