Edward Dnnbar, Who Wrote "There 1 * A Litnt ki the -Window tor -rhee, Brother," Died an Outcast iud. J)«»pU«xi by All Who Knew Him. HE Rev. Edward Dunbar/tvho wrote the Sunday school song, "There's a Light ia the Window for Thee, Brother," sleeps in a pauper's grave a.t Coffeyville, Kan., where he died a tramp in the town Jail two years ago. His name became a byword .in tha places where he was known, and from a prison cell he went forth a vagabond upon the face of the earth. In 1S67 Dunbar was arrested at Leavenworth while engaged in holding a series cf revival meetings, and taken to Minneapolis, Minn., where he was tried for bigamy, convicted, and sent to the penitentiary for three years and eight months. One night in the spring of 1896 Dunbar applied at the Coffeyville jail for lodging. He was ill, and tha authorities took him in. He died the next day. Papers in his pockets revealed his identity and showed that he had tramped all over the country. Some church people have erected a marble slab over his grave, on whicb these words are- inscribed: "Here lies Edward Dunbar, who wrote 'There's a Light in the Window Jcr Thee, Brother.'" When Dunbar was a small boy h» Jived in New Bedford, Mass., and work. ed in a factory. His mother lived on the foot of the street on which tha factory was located, and as the lad's work kept him away until aftar REV. EDWARD DUNBAR. «he always placed a light in the wln« dow to guide his footsteps homeward, One da'^ the boy took a notion to go to ssa, and off he went for a three years' cruise. During his absence his mother fell ill, and was at death's door. She talked incessantly &bout her boy, and every night she asked those around her to place a light in the window in anticipation of his return. When she realized that the end ha.d come, she said: "Toll Edward that I will set a light in the window of heaven for him." These were her last words. The lad had grown to manhood ere h« returned home, and his mother's dying message had such an effect upon him that he reformed and became a preacher. In the course of his reformation he wrote the song, "There's a Light in the Window for Thee, Brother." The Rev. Edward Dunbar married a young lady of New Bedford and several children were the result of tha union. The young divine soon made a reputation as a brilliant pulpit orator, and the public was, therefore, greatly •urprised when one Sunday morning he skipped the country, leaving his wife and children behind. He came to Kan•as, and after snatching brands from tte iburnim in different parts of the stats he swooped down upon the city of Minneapolis Minn., and began to show the ptople tha error of their ways. A great revival followed and hundreds were converted. Miss Eunice Lewis, a handsome young heiress of Minneapolis, was one of the converts. She fell in love with the evangelist and married him against the wishes of her friends. Shortly after the wedding Dunbar returned to Kansas to fill an engagement at Leavenworth. While he was away the friends of tha bride, who had mistrusted the evangelist all along, laid their suspicions before W. D. Webb, lately Judge of the second judicial district of Kansas, and Judge Austin H. Young, who were law partners in Minneapolis, and they took the case. Ths result was that thej- soon found evidence sufficient to n-arrant an arrest and Dunbar's ministerial career was brought to a sudden close. After Dunbar's incarceration Judge Young secured a divorce for Mrs. Dunbar and married her himself. They now live hip- pily together in Minneapolis. lor Poor F»f«nt«. A unique charity, established by a rich woman of San Francisco, is described by the Chicago Inter Ocean. A San Francisco doctor performed a successful operation for & rich woman, and when asked for his bill presented one for fifty dollars. The woman smiled and said, "Do you consider that a reasonable charge, considering mj circumstances?" The doctor replisa, "That is my charge for that operation; your circumstances have nothing to do with it." The lady drew a check for five hundred dollars, and presented it to him. He handed it back, saying"I cannot accept this. My charge for the operation is fifty dollars." "Very well'," the woman replied. "Keep the check, and put the balance to my credit." Some months afterward she received a bill, upon which were entered charges for treatment of various kinds, rendered to all sorts of odds and ends of humanity, male and female, black and white, who had been mended at her expense. She was so delighted that she immediately placed another check for five hundred dollars to her credit on the same terms, and it is now being earned in the game way. Thumbscrews. William Carstairs, the Scotch divine who for fourteen years served Williain III. as confidential secretary and ad- Tiser-in-chief, had been implicated in the Rye house plot, a conspiracy to assassinate Charles 11., and place Monmouth oil the throne. He was put to tie excruciating torture of the thumb- klne, or thumbscrews, which he endured heroically, without confessing or Implicating others. After Carstairs became the private adviser of "William, ke was presented, with tb» 'nstrument by which he had been tortured. The king, wishing to see the measure of fortitude necessary to endure the terrible torture, without making a confession of some sort, placed his thumbs In the machine and told Carstairs to turn the screw. He turned slowly and cautiously. "It Is unpleasant," said King William, "yet it might be endured. You are trifling with me; turn the screw so that I may really feel pain similar to that you felt." Carstairs turned the screw sharply. The king cried out, and when released said that under such pain he would have confessed to anything, or false. Settlnc the River Adr*. From the Indianapolis News: Out ingenuity would probably be equal t* all emergencies in case of war. Now comes a Philadelphia genius who would prevent the approach of any warships within reach of that city hf flooding the surface of the Delaware river with oil and setting it on flre. His scheme is to run a perforated pipe line under the river, force the oil by machinery through the pipes, and on the approach of the enemy to fire tha oil. No vessel, he declares, could pass through it, as the intense heat would bend and eat up the strongest iron plates, and what remained would be blown to atoms by heat reaching the magazines. The scheme seems very feasible, and the beauty about it is its simplicity. SHORT SKfRTS That Won a Compliment from • The rainy-day skirt has been accord^ «d a lordly salute, and by one of Boston's most dignified and best known citizens. Early the past week, when the rain had been falling for over 24 hours, and the street cross walks were in such a shape as to well nigh ruin an ordinary dress skirt, unless the wearer held it up nearly to the knees, one of Boston's well known women, dressed in a neat and well fitting raony- day costume, was returning from the Old Colony Station, after bidding good- by to a friend. While walking erectly and freely across Linden street crossing, where scores of other women were holding up one side of their skirts while the other side dragged in the mud, she was suddeeuy confronted by a middle-aged, courtly gentleman, •prho was an entire stranger to her, and lifting his hat he addressed her thuai "I beg your pardon, madame, but a woman who has the good sense and courage to wear so eon£<ortable and appropriate a costume OR She streak deserves the most resp»ctwl salute. I take off my hat to your short skirt." "I thank you, sir," was the pleasant reply, "but if all women knew the comfort and cleanliness of sucb. a garment I am sure they would wear no other on such a day as th:s." After this short dialogue the two persons passed on, the woman more than ever convinced that the future of the short skirt was full}' assured, and the man made glad with the thought that the age of reason among women was mak«- ing satisfactory strides. . THE CHAMPION MEAN MAW. DICKENS RELICS. 3tlcawber'» Retreat to Disappear from London's Street*. Pew eren of the lovers of Charles Dickens are aware that a portioa of the old Marshalsea prison yet stands hidden, away behind Borough High street and St. George's church, but the remaining wards of the prison which once was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Micawber when, that gentleman's affairs had arrived at a "crisis," ara about to disappear, says the New York Herald. The new scheme, which has been undertaken for the continuation of Tabard street into High sti-eet, past tire east end of St. George's church, will wipe into oblivion all that is left of the old Marshalsea, though the church in which Little Dorrit spent the night when she had been "locked out" will stands as a monument of the great novelist's creations. The gateway of the prison, up to a court, 205 High street, stood until a few years ago, and the new warehouse entrance—for the ward which was left was so utilized—bears an inscription: "This site was originally the Marshalsea prison, made fam- !ous by Charles Dickens in his weil- j known work, "Little Dorrit." The windows ol the prison ward, says the London Mail, can be seen from the court alluded to, which is the second court on the right hand side of Borough High street going from St. George's church toward London bridge. Dickens was very fond of painting this district, and it was in the adjacent Lant street that Mr. Bob Sawyer ea- tertalned Mr. Pickwick and friend*. Wliy Hi* Bmnt»m Cock Em»Uy a Bin, Strong Roo»t*r. From the New Orleans Times-Democrat: "The meanest man 1 ever know- ed." said a sport yesterday, "was » chicken fighter. Now. I ain't saying nothing against chicken fighting, for I think it is all right, but I mean to say that this man wasn't a straight chicken fighter. Anything went with him. AH he wanted to do was .to win. 1 have knowed him to have a rooster that be couldn't get no fight with, because the rooster would whip anything, and I have knowed him to paint that rooster blue so as to get up a scrap. Well. the worst thing be ever did I shall r»- member to my dying day. "Bill, that was his name, was with a lot of us fellows one day, when we were talking about the heavy weight game cock that had been beating everything in the pit. 'Oh. that rooster ain't so warm,' said Bill, in a careless fashion. Tve got a little game bantam that will kill him in the flrit round.' This made the sport who owned the chicken mad. He and Bill got to gassing and passing gags and they made up a fight. The sport, he said, he would bet $500, but Bill he said that J500 was too small, and that he wouldn't go for nothing less than ?!,000. They fixed up the scrap, and one Sunday a lot of us sports met behind an old stable. Well, sir, you oughter have heard them fellows laugh when they seed Bill's rooster. He was a stumpy little bantam, hardly high enough to touch the other rooster's chin comb unless he jumped. We laughed and laughed, and guyed Bill, but Bill, he didn't say nothing. He was just holding his little bantam under the stomach antf rubbing him on the head. 'Who's holding the money?! •was all that Bill said. Well, sir, I wasn't a member of the society that tries to stop roosters from being killed, hut I did think it a shame to let that .little rooster go up against the big fellow. Bill and the rich sport first held the chickens together to let them peck at each other and get their spunk up, and then they put them on the ground. The big rooster looked at the bantam a minute as if he would fall on him and crush him to death. Both of the birds wore those long gafts like needles. Well, sir, the big rooster made a pass and missed, and then suddenly we seed the bantam "dig a left- hander in the big bird's wing. Nobody thought nothing of that, but when time was called the big rooster put his head down and just keeled over. Bantam stood up on his body and crowed. Well, Bill took the money and we got to thinking that it was mighty funny that a rooster could be killed so easy.so we looked at him, picked off his feathers and found he was turning black. Bill had put a strong poison on the bantam's gaffs, so that the least, swipe would mean a good-bye. We tried tt find Bill, but he had takea a trip for his health." The Longest and Shortest Day&> At London and Bremen the longest day has sixteen and one-half hours. At Stockholm, Sweden, it is eighteen and one-half hours in length. At Hamburg, in Germany, and Dantzic, in Prussia, the longest day has seventeen hours. At St. Petersburg, Russia, and Tobolsk, Siberia, the longest day is nineteen hours, and the shortest five hours. At Tornea, Finland, June 21 brings a day nearly twenty-two hours long, and Christmas one less than three hours in length. At Warbury. Norway, the longest day lasts from May 21 to July 22, without interruption, and in Spttzbergen the longest day is three and a half months. Five-Foot Japanese Soldierg. The minimum height in the mika- do's army is a fraction of an inch over five feet, that in the Italian army fiv« feet one inch. As the height of individuals in Japan does not often exceed five feet four inches for males, it follows that there is wonderful uniformity, observable in the physique of the Japanese troops, and this fact operates beneficially in long marches, very few falling out of the ranks. What one can do all can do. The emperor himself is much above the average stature. Threw Stones »t a Hearse. Charged with throwing stones at a hearse in which a body was being conveyed to the grave. Mrs. Mary E. "White was, a few days ago, at Williamsport. Pa., fined $10 by a magistrate and held to bail to keep the peace. The body in the hearse was that of Florence Hasan, who had committed luicide in jail, after being sentenced to a year's imprisonment for stealing from Mrs. White. Road Records. Official road records in England will 'be made under strict rules this year. I A new regulation is as follows: "A I rider attempting an unpaced record must be entirely alone throughout. He may be followed by a witness, who must not, while the competitor is mounted, either approach him within 100 yards or coach him by audible signals." All records must be timed by an official timekeeper, using a special watch, but in cases of the records between London and York. Liverpool and Edinburgh, London and Liverpool, it will suffice if times are taken from the general postoffice clocks at each end, provided those times are vouched for by at least two creditable witnesses in each case, any fraction of a minute being reckoned as a whole minute."

Th«v Alway* Coine In Good In the fix' Ing Up of Millinery. A woman can hardly do better than to 1 buy violets whenever she sees them especially pretty or at low prices. All shades of the flowers go together, and the newly-stylish effect cannot be obtained unless many different shades are used together in trimming a hat. It is safe to add violets to any hat, and one crafty woman's practice is worth following. She keeps handy littla hunches of well-made violets.tied about their stems with bows of viplet ribbon. These bunches she tucks in under the brim of the hat when it is adjusted to the head, just filling up a little bare place where, perhaps, th» tilt of the hat is a little more than intended, or where her pompadour has flattened. She almost always passe, her hat pin through . one of these bunches before she uses the pin, and tbe careless effect of the flowers thus added is almost always happy. It is the fashion to set on a hat a great big c'annon ball bunch of violets, such as we have been affecting for several seasons in the real flower on the muff. The violets should be of many shades, and there should be a plenty of leaves. Such a bunch may be used on several different hats. The use of leaves with the violets is about the only new trick with them, though they are often veiled with uet or lace, a making that is now common to all sorts of miUtn- •ry bloom. Snake Bite in India. Fully twenty thousand of the population of India, are annually kilted iy snake bites. The most deadly of all Indian reptiles appears to be the cobra di capello, which is greatly dreaded by the bare-legged Hindoos. With a view to reducing the mortality, tha government tried the effect cf offering a reward for snakes' heads; but in- strad of diminishing the number of these reptiles, it only Increased it, as it was discovered that the natives were breeding the snakes in oraer to secure th« reward. Fortune Expended in Unique Fashion, One of the wealthiest and loveliest society women of New York has a ! yearly income of $25,000 above her most extravagant needs and she feel» she must get rid of it and benefit her fsllow men, so she spends it all on hothouse grapes at $5 a pound, which she sends to hospitals and slums.

HMdMt W Just as sometimes sec" a. tree or apparently'* 5 ^ strong 1 sound come • rushing down with a sudden < crash because' of some undetected process of decay, so no matter how good an appearance a woman may present, if she is subject to any hidden weakness, gradually sapping: away and undermining her vitality, some day her entire constitution \vill (rive way and leave her a prostrate physical •wreck. The average doctor gives a little something- for the headache and a little something else for the backache and still another thing for the nerves and so on, nev«r once reaching the hidden weakness in the distinctly feminine organism. The vast experience and special practice of Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief consulting physician of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, of Buffalo, N. Y., in treating women's diseases, enables him to understand and cope successfully with these par- tictrlar ailments. Any woman may feel the utmost confidence in consulting him by mail.
