THE Kickapoo Indiana are still true to their name. They refused to be counted by tho census taker and, in eft'eot, kicked him off tho reservation. Tire hair of King Humbert, of Italy, has become snow white, and ho stubbornly refuses to dye it in accordance •with the aristocratic fashion of his country.

RENTS for flats in Now York aro decreasing. Rapid transit is enabling people to live in a whole house outside the city at a comparatively low figure for rent and a nickle or two for travel. THAT some of the paper money we (handle is foul and disagreeable to tho 3ast degree suggests tho fact that every (note returning to a French bank is at jonce destroyed, and a fresh one issued In its stead. i BEAUTY is not dependent upon knowledge. The most beautiful black race in (Africa, a tribe in Nyassaland, on whose looks even missionaries grow eloquent, iand who aro really as perfect as bronzo statues, are as ignorant as fishes. AKTESIAN wells have developed such pn abundant supply of water in the DDesert of Sahara that French engineers 'are confident of being able to extend their railroad to a distance of a week's journey from Algeria right through the desert : THE lower falls of tho Genesee river at Rochester, N. Y., are utilized for tho .production of electricity, and moro than J500 motors are in use. Power is furnished to run sewing machines in 108 tailor bhops, the charge being $18 a year for 13^-horse power. I THE introduction of a new rifle into our army, having a reduced caliber, and capable of being used as a magazine gun, is now a certainty; and as tho Du- •ponts have received an order for 100,000 cartridges with which to test small arma of thirty caliber, this introduction will hardly be long delayed. THE influenza has reappeared in Vienna, and may again be fashionable in America during the coming winter. It ihas the same manifestations as before—• 'fever, chills and pains in the limbs— jbut instead of being attended with throat and chest troubles, now appears as intestinal complaints. A DAUBER with an eye to business is 'Jho who served Cardinal Newman, and -who treasured every clipped lock, ex- ipecting the day to come shortly when .admirers would lie willing to pay a hand- .aome price for one. The day has come, and doubtless tho barber will sell more -of the Cardinal's hair than the Cardinal •ever had. A DOCTOH of Vienna has invented a •fluid, the use of which he claims will .minimize the horrors of war. Tho fluid -is to be placed in a shell, which is so • constructed that it will burst in falling •or striking any object offering but slight -.resistance. Tho fluid, upon being released, so aifects persons inhaling its odor that they immediately become unconscious and remain in that state half .an hour or more. Mrss MAKGAJSET BLANCHE BEST, of Moadville, Pa., is announced as winner of the prize offered by Dr. Sargent, director of physical culture at Harvard •College, to the woman whoso bodily (proportions most nearly approach per- ifect symmetry as indicated by his an- thropometric chart.

"Tho infernal insects can't stand the smell of the grease, and wherever oil wells aro plenty there is no call for mosquito bars. Over and over again I've seen mosquitoes leavn a new oil field as soon as a well flows. Whether petroleum applied to the face and hands •will drive oil' mosquitoes I don't know. But one of the few compensations of the driller is that he's seldom troubled by mosquitoes." THE treaty between the United States »nd Guatemala stipulates that "liberty be extended to persons who are on board a free ship, with this effect, that although they be enemies of both or either party, they are not to be taken out of tfaat free ship unless they are officers or soldiers and in active service of the enemies." It is thought that Minister Mizner might have found in this treaty a protection for General Barrundia while on the Pacific Mail steamship Acapulco, and under tho United States flag, though lie could not find protection for him uu- •der the law of nations. LATE advices from Bogota state that the negotiations between Lieutenant Wyse and the Colombian Government relative to the resumption of work on the Panama Canal are progressing favorably. Tho Government agrees to grant an extension of the contract for eight years, as proposed, and to make certain •concessions of land along the line of the <oanal, -and the company in return is to •pay the government $3,400,000 in eight annual installments and $1,000,000 in preferred stock; also to contribute $6,000 monthly for the military protection of the transit.

They shall report fully all their transactions to the commission. The committee is aa follows: Messrs. McDonald, Kerens, Exall, Widerier, Commissioners-nt-lorgo; and Sewall, of Now Jersey; Smalley, of Vermont; Martlndnle, of Indiana; Tnutcher, of New York; Breed, of Massachusetts, Murtin, of Ne- brusltn; Price, of Kansas; Harrison, of Minnosotu;13iitt, of West Virginia; Ewing, of Illinois; King, of Iowa; Platt, of Ohio; MeL,aws, of Georgia; Williams, of Tennessee; Hirst, of Florida,; Suimdors, of Mississippi; Hersch- Held, of Moutunu; Qoodell, of Colorado; Britton, of tho District of Columbia, and McKenzie, of. Kentucky. President Palmer is chairman by tho resolution of tho commission adopted July 1, 18DO. Tho report of the committee on rules, by-laws and regulations was read. Two stated meetings of the commission are provided for annually, viz.: on the first Wednesday in April and September of each year during its existence, commencing in April, 1891. Special moot- ings aro to bo hold on tho call of the president, which call may bo made on his own motion, or at the written request of the executive committee or of one-third of tho members of the commission. Salaries are fixed as follows: President, $12,000 a year; Secretary, $10,000 a year; Director General, $15,000 a year. The following standing committees wore provided for: Judiciary, Rules and By-Laws. Tariffs and Transportation, Foreign Affairs, Legislation, Fine Arts, Science, History, Lit- eruturo and Education, Live Stock, Horticulture, Finance, Auditing, Ceremonies, Classification, Manufactures, Commerce, Mines and Mining. Fisheries and Fish Culture, Electricity and Electrical Appliances, Forestry and Lumber, Machinery, World's Congresses. The committee on legislation presented its report. The section relating to the board of lady managers provoked a lengthy debate. Several amendments wore adopted, and the section as finally agreed upon is in brief as follows: "The board of lady managers shall consist of two women from each State and Territory and the District of Columbia, to be nominated by the commissioners from the several States and Territories and the District of Columbia, and of one woman to be nominated by each of the commissioners-at-large, and to be appointed by the President; and, also, nine women cf the city of Chicago, to bo appointed by the President, as has been expressly determined by the resolution of the commission; and u like number of alternates, to be appointed In the same manner us the principals and to assume tho duties and functions of such principals only when the principals are unable to attend. Principals and alternates shall be duly commissioned in accordant e with the direction of the commission. The board of lady managers shall be convened by the order of the executive committee of the National commission at such times and places as they may deem proper. The members of this board shall be officers of the commission and shall perform such duties in connection with Ihe woman's department of the exposition as said executive committee shall prescribe. Each member of the board shall be entitled to receive six dollars a day for each day necessarily absent from home engaged in the work of the commission, and o.'so the expenses for transportation actually incurred by her on that account. The alter nates shall receive no compensation nor expenses for transportation except in cases where their principals are unable to attend to the duties assigned to them." There is now a strong probability that Colonel George R. Davis, of this city, will be Director General of the great fair. HEAVY FAILURE. Gardner, Chase & Co., Bankers at Boston, Suspend—Liabilities About S3.000.OOO. BOSTON, Sept. 18.—The suspension of R. Gardner, Chase & Co., bankers and brokers, is announced on the Stock Exchanges. James T. Phelps is the assignee. Ho says the liabilities are about $-.2,000,000. The impression is strong that the trouble will not be far-reaching and that its effect on the market will be only temporary. Mr. George R. Chaso, son of the senior member of the houye, and chief clerk said:. '•The trouble is due wholly to the tiglit money. Calls upon us have been greater than ive could withstand, our collaterals have shrunk in value beyond all expectations, and much as we endeavored to avert a, suspension,, we have been forced to it. No outside transactions or speculations have led to this, trouble. It is tight money and nothing else. We have done no business of u sp«cu!a- tive character as u house, and such no-we iiava- done for our customers has been done on a conr scrvative basis. 1 do not feel warranted now in giving the circumstances that were 1ho immediate cause of the failure. We are uiuible at present to tell how we shall eome out, but we- propose to do ikll that we can and to. deal hon» orably by all our creditors." BONDS BOUGHT UP.

Tho latest reports indicate that between fifty and severity persons wore killod and that an equal numbor ; received injiirles more or* loss serious. Thirteen bodies have booh taken from the wreck, some of which have not yet boon identified. Tho ill-fated train is No. 8 express, bettor known as tho cannon-ball,train, which loaves Philadelphia at 4 O'clock in tho afternoon, It loft on tirno Friday at .Philadelphia, but was several minutes lato leaving tho outrtr station hero owing to tho largo crowds who woro returning homo from tho Berks County fair and who had gathered afc that station to take tho train. Seven tnoro cars had to ho added to tho alroady-llllod coaches, and a delay of fifteen rainutos wits caused. When the train was onco beyond tho numerous side-tracks about a milo north of tho city tho engineer began making up tho lost time and in a few seconds tho train was running at lightning spood. Suddenly there was a crash, a rumbling of tho passenger coaches over the ties, and down, wont tho engine, tank, baggage, express, and parlor cars and tho passenger-coaches into the creek which borders tho road at that point. Tho sight w;is a heartrending one. The escaping stoam from tho locomotive added to tho horror, and but for tho baggage and express cars which pro- ceded tho passenger coaches hundreds would have boon literally cooked alive. Tho crash was heard for a groat distance and h Jhdrods of people from the village and tho surrounding country were soon at tho scone of tho wreck. Tho accident was caused by a number of wrecked coal-cars whicli had been thrown in the way of the passongur train. This first wreck was caused l>y a collision between a freight and coal train. The coal train had pulled past tho station at Shoomakorsvillo, going south, and was a moderate rate of speed, partof her train having torn loose, whnn suddenly a freight which followed came thundering around a curve, and before tho engineer could stop his train it crashed into the roar of the coal train and throw a number of loaded coal cars across tho north-bound track. The cannon ball express was thon duo and before tho danger signal could bo given it camo in sight. Knginoer John White did all. ho could to avoid tho accident, but without avail, and when tho ont;inft struck the wrecked coal cars it loft tho track and carried the cars as above mentioned down a steep embankment and precipitated thorn into tho creek thirty foot bolow. Thon followed an awful scene. Women screamed, children criod and mon moanod.

President' Pftlm8r mMe a brief spee'oh Bnd the commission entered into the hearing of a number of committee reports. The most important was the judiciary committee, which was charged with the duty of denning the fights, duties artd powers of the commission uftder the act of Congress creating It. The report claims that tho Na' tional commission has the exclusive power to allot space, classify exhibits, determine the plan aftd scope of the ox» position, make all awards of premiums, and ffenorally to have charge? of all Intercourse with the exhibitors and representatives of foreign nations. The commission claim;: the power to appoint necessary officer, and committees. This doubtless tnoan« the director-general. While the commission says it Is not charged with any duty in regard to tho selection, of a site or grounds or the plans and specifications of buildings, its approval of the action of the local board does not necessarily exhaust its power over these subjects. Tho action of the local board may be reconsidered by the commission. Tho powoi of general supervision and control i? claimed by the commission because tho exposition is to be National and international, not local. The report was signed by the full committee, William Lindsay, of Kentucky; George N. Massey, of Delaware; J. W. St. Clair, of West Virginia; L Gregg, of Arkansas, and W. J: Sowell, of New Jersey. This report, as were all the others, was laid over for future discussion. The report of the committee on permanent organization briefly defined the duties of twenty-two standing committees. Tho executive committee is given all the powers of the commission when that body is not in session, excepting cases in which the act of Congress in express terms requires the action of the commission or a majority of the commissioners. Tho other committees' were given the powers and duties expressed and fairly implied in their bills. These committees are: Kules, by-laws and regulations; tariffs and transportation; foreign affairs; legislation; fine arts; history; literature and education; agriculture; livestock; horticulture and floriculture; finance; auditing; ceremonies; classification; manufactures; commerce; mines and mining; fisheries and fish culture; electricity and electrical appliances; forestry and lumber; machinery and world's congresses. Prof. G. Brown Goode's classification of exhibits was presented in a report covering 211 pages of printed matter. He divides the exhibits into ten departments—agriculture and allied industries; the mines and metollurgy; marine and fisheries; manufacture and other elaborative industries; food and its accessories; tho house and its accessories' — costume and personal equipment? the pictorial, plastic and decorative arts; social relations and public welfare; science, religion, education and human achievement; collective and monographic exhibits. Each of these departments is separated into ten or "twelve divisions and each division into ten sections or subdivisions. Over a thousand subdivisions are made, and these still further divided into from Sve to twenty smaller items. Robert P.. Porter submitted a plan for a bureau of awards. The sub-committee of the permanent organization- committee recommended a separate department on mines and) mining to occupy a building of its own.. The committee suggestad a complete exhibition of mining machinery of this and foreign countries, a collection of all known minerals, precious stones, and of building and ornamental stone, with models of some of the more famous mines and quarries. It proposed the erection of a miniature mountain showing the geological' formation of mineral lands and the methods of reducing ores, miniature smelters and other machinery showing tho-de- velopment of mechanical appliances in this branch of industry. Tho Lake Front ordinance, with the amendments suggested by the world's fair directors, was passed without opposition Monday evening by the city council. The old ordinance, with eleven linos struck out, was presented by Alderman eullortom The omissions were the provisions that required the directors to use not loss than 150 acres of land on the Lake Front for exposition purposes, and the now useless section requiring all bills to. be presented to the special session of the Legislature to be first submitted to the corporation counsel. President Gage and Directors Davis, Palmer, Keys and Hutchinson were present and expressed their satisfaction at the prompt action of the council. UNDER ARREST.

Taylor, a. stove dealer on Market street, while entering his residence on State and Union streets at 7:30 p. m. was rushed upon by Hein, who fired two shots at Taylor, both of which took effect. Taylor is still alive, but is very low, although able to con* verso with those about him. In reply to question's he said that he does not know what prompted Htiin to shoot him. Taylor is prominent in several secret societies. He is 35 years old and married. After shooting Taylor Hein hurried to his own house, and a little before 8 o'clock people living in the vicinity heard five pistol shots flred in rapid succession. Immediately afterward Maud, the 18-year-old daughter of Hein. was seen running out of tho house. She proceeded but a short distance when she fell. Neighbors rushed to her assistance. On being asked what the trouble was she replied: "Father has shot me." An examination shows that one bullet entered'the right side of her face at short range. As she started to run out of the house her father fired two shots at her, one taking effect under the shoulder, passing through' her stomach and the other passing: through her hip. The lower part of Hein's house was the scene of the murderer's most horrible work. Just outside the back door lay two' bodies, Carrie, the oldest girl, had been *hot through the head, dying instantly. Across her prostrate form lay Bertha, the youngest daughter. When found she was unconscious, and' expired in fifteen minutes, tho bullet that caused her death having entered her head just .behind the left ear. In the front chamber lay the dead body,of Hein with a bullet through the temple, MINERS TO STRIKE. Oror 40,000 Men In Illinois and Indians. Coal fiolda to Demand an Increase In PITTSBURGH, Pa., Sept 18.—Patrick McBryde, member of the executive^ board of the United Mine Workers, was- in Pittsburgh Wednesday night on his. way to Springfield, III., wtoere he will order a strike of the 40,000 miners employed in the Indiana and Illinois fields. The strike will bo for an advance in wages and will begin November!. In the- northern districts an advance of seven and one-half cents is asked. In the- southern districts tho advance asked is. ten- cents. The strike has been brewing for a long time. The Illinois and Indiana operators, it is charged, have been showing themselves par- ttoula'rly hostile toward the men. The demands were made last spring. The miners then announced they would work throughout the summer. Theoper- ators have steadily refused the- advance, except those hi the northern districts, who will concede it if tho southern operators will also make the concession. As the latter refused to do so, however, a. strike is certain. The miners have been preparing for the strike, and plenty of funds have been secured to put back-bone into it. The executive board of tho United Mine- Workers has sanctioned the strike, and Mr. McBryde goes West as its representative. Mr. McBryde said':: "There will certainly bo a strike of the Indiana and Illinois miners. Wo are well prepared for it and will ask the Pennsylvania and Ohio operators to shut down temporarily in order that we may close every avenue of escape for the Western operators."
