THE EVENING GAZETTE: WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY i 1R38. Evening Gazette. T B!» M ».• " rt*. I ET OARRIKB. WKnNF.snAY.FEn. 1, ISSS. SOME COMPLAINTS have been heard from Democratic sources because Mrs. Hendrlcfcs !s not placed on the pension rolls. This government has no civil pension list, and Mrs. Logan, Mrs. Blair, Mrs. Grant and other widows ire pensioners, not because their hna- bands filled hl?h civil offices, as did also Mr. Hendrlcks, but because they fought to suppress the rebellion. Mr. Hendrtcks did not go In the army, but ' staid at home. THE NEW I'ORK. Metronome is authority for a statement that Kdouard ReiLenyi, the famed violinist, was not drowned in October last, off Madagascar, but that he la alive and well, In London. We think thero is some mistake about this; forthsre was given a detailed account of his death; we have _ two high ^authorities jrightatjhand which declare he did then lose his life, and we can find nothing outside of the Metronome to substantiate this account of his being alive and well. ASA GRAY is dead. Just before he died Prof ess. it Huxley, moat eminent of EnjiliBh biologists, paid a glowing tribute in a magazine article to his profound knowledge ' and research, ranking him among the foremost scientists of the age and especially extolling his labors among the coral islands and reefs of the Pacific and Indian oceans. This question of coral formation is just now fruitful cause of disputation among scientific men. Mr. Gray inclines to the same view as Mr. Darwin and Professor Huxley, while Wallace the Duke of Argyll and others differ. Prof. Gray was as good as he was great. His life was an honor to his race and nation. He died full of years. —There were two slod loads of young married people who went sleighing to "Dixon last night and enjoyfd six-handed euchre over there. — The lenp-year-sleighride party given by Miss Frankie Hoss last night was a most delightful affair— enjoyed hugely by the yonrtff ladies and gentlemen. — We are requested to state that as soon as Mr.- Sweet makes up and sends the list of members and what is due them, each will receive what is duo him or her from the dancing school. — To-morrow is "ground hog" day, According to the ancient tradition if "when it comes out in ttie morning," — but never mind the rest. If Thursday prove anything like to day, the "an! mule" will be apt to stay out. — For general information: Heat in a room should not get , higher than 70 degrees, nor lower than 68; 70 to 72 is about where the thermometer should range. School teachers very careful to observe the heat in their room's and. see that it is kept uniform and that no pupils sit in draughts. LOST.

BLOWING OUT THE GAS. DEPARTURES. J,fr. and Mrs. E. E. Hreneman for St. Paul. ARRIVALS Mrs. (J. A. Moaner from phicago. Mr. and Mrs. Belford Slater are visiting here.. Mr, Herbert Johnson is visiting friends hern. KOCK FAM,». here. , and J. R. Howand are visiting LEST THESE be some misunderstanding In regard to what we said about party bossism, we desire to add that the GAZETTE understands and appreciates the importance of party management. There can be no political parties except there be management. The editor of this papethas always been a party man and has always attended the caucuses or conventions of his party, but he has always insisted and always "will insist thai party managers "have no right to make up slates for the people- Managers should formulate platforms and arrange plans for party government, but the choice of candidates should be with the people. It is they and they only who should speak preferences for candidates and choose their candidates. It is not for a mere handful of men to make our nominations for Governor and other State officers and then raise the cry of, "You must stand by the ticket or be read out of the party." Expecting the people to elect, they should let the people choose candidates. We are led to speak of this galling bordage of bossism just now because the party management of the State has passed into the bands if men who have not the ability to run the business successfully. The GA- ZETTK but follows its long time course of urging the people of all parties to attend their caucuses; In this way they can control their nominations, and in no other way can they do it The GAZETTE believes in the people,-in the rule of the people; it has always and it always will oppose the practice of letting a mere handful of men dictate State nominations for the great political patties of the great State of Illinois. —Our railroad news to-day contains a series of disasters, due as is claimed to fosf, but probably somewhat to overcrowding of and overworking of men. —There yet remains some. parties to be seen in relation to land overflow. It . Is thought .best not to call the mass meeting referred to In yesterday's GA- ZKTTE until they have Agreed to terms: '. hence the meeting will not probably be called this week. —While some neighboring towns are complaining of empty streets and dull trade, it demands but a visit here to see that activity prevails. Look up and down our .business streets and see the vehicles, enter any of our stores and see how busy are merchants and cletka. —A runaway team last evening about six o'clock, dashed along and through one of our principal streets, and we hare heard of three separate parties who escaped being run over as by the skin of their teeth. There were no bells on the team and as fast as it went, it made little noise as it dashed over the rather yielding snow-bed, , — In Judge Jamison's; court yesterday at Chicago, it was" decided that Mrs. Taller has a dower right In that riorthalda property. It seems that Long John Went worth I Is about the only one holding out. She will 'get in all about «50,000. . Mr. Wentworth's responsibility it Is said IB only about 92,000 of this amount, but he has not been anxious to pay the same. . —Jay birds flock together in winter although they mass in larger numbers in spring. They do not, though, in winter, gather iu such large bodies as other families of birds. This is in reply to an enquiry. We would add that all birds each after tleir kind, in period >jast before mating gather together and perform feats in song, or fight, according to their natures before choosing mates. —Mr. and Mrs, K. J. Uempstead . took the members of Grace church guild out for a sleigh-ride yesterday afternoon, and it would .scarcely be possible to crowd more enjoyment into a given *j«w« of time than did the iadiVidoalf composing the party. Mrs. If empstead i* a hoot withtu herself aad &6 laughter of tba crowd wa* MI menytasA** hearty a» though ih«r weaknesses incident to the age of callowness which no amount of warning appears to check in the slightest, and both relate to fondness for riding. One might show up in detailed painfulness the danger of stealing ndes on bob-sleds and railroads, and yet the number of boys so stealing rides would not diminish in the slightest. The old story of a boy's walking two miles in order to ride one, is by no means improbable. Sweet are stolden pleasures. The danger but appears to add zest to the pastimes. It is not possible to demonstrate the meaning of danger to the little fellows, and they can see only the "fun" that comes of a possible roll over in the snow, or of winding up a jump from a car in motion by a head over heels pitch into a railroad bank. Even calamity does not cure them. There is a little fellow— a mite of a boy living down somewhere along the railroad track, who one day last spring or summer was picked up for dead, having struck his head in jumping from a moving train upon some hard substance. He was very low indeed for a long time afterward; yet he may be seen any day, for he will not go to school-^-can't be hired to do so, jumping on bob-sleds when it is very cold and upon cars when it is milder. Punishment and brlbescannot restrain him. THE PRISON GRAVEYARD. f f prewa «i» •lnz Sln(t'« Iliiryliie (irontiil for Convict*. Death of a Prisoner. On the side of a Bleep hill whose peak IB many hundred feet hlgli f nnd whose base Is at the grnnttQ watts of Sing Sing, are two graveyards divided by a winding country road. The one nearer the prison IB the old plot that was used for burying dead convicts until {he small stretch of level ground was thickly sprinkled with rough wixxleh crosses nnd small roughly curved Moiies, and then a much- larger place further up the hill was set npart for this use. The big prison has stood on Its present site for more than fifty years, and although the number of convlcta there has Increased proportionately with the growth of the population, the average number of deaths within Its walls has not increased. Humanity and sciepco have cut down the death rate. On an average ten persons, a year die In the prison, and nearly all ot those who have died have been burled in the prison graveyard and left there undisturbed. A few have died by accident In the work shops, but the percentage of deaths by accident la so small as to be scarcely worthy of note. A large majority of deaths has been caused by consumption, which, however, is rarely, contracted within the prison walls. A prisoner suffering from consumption Is shown every consideration possible with prison discipline. His work Is made light, and as soon as he shows the symptoms of breaking down he is sent to the hospital. In the prison graveyards repose the bones of about 500 convicts. 'This makes the number of deaths average nearly ten a year. The old graveyard on the slope nearest the river looks like a deserted God's acre of olden times. A dozen years ago, when the bnrylng ground was moved further up the slope, the fence of the old place was left to take care of Itself, which It has failed to do. The mounds have been beaten down until they are level with the ground. The rough wooden crosses that bear a number corresponding to one In a big ledger In the prison, in which a record of the dead Is kept, stand in straggling fashion. These were originally unpointed pieces of wood nailed together iu the form of a cross, and driven into the earth. A tew of them have been kicked over, but even on • those that are still standing the numbers that were on them once have been so defaced by the weather that they are scarcely legible. The newer graveyard is in a much better condition. The wooden crosses are comparatively new, and the numbers that' are on them can be plainly seen. At the head of a few of the mounds stand rough stones, crudely cut. Every one of these stones tells a story more pathetic than do many of the pretentious monuments in big and finely kept cemeteries. These stones are air the work of prisoners, who labor during hours of leisure as acts of friendship. # When a prisoner Is very ill and there seems to be danger that ha will die, hla friends are notified, and the iron rule of the prison is for the time unnoticed. He Is allowed to settle up in the presence ot his friends all of his worldly affairs, and to have them about his bedside until the end comes. There are occasions, of course, and many of thein, when the prisoner is either absolutely friendless or Is only anxious to die without making his shame known to his friends. When the end comes the body la then free, and to the friends of the dead man is given the melancholy privilege of bearing the body ont- elde of the prison walls. A prison funeral ia usually a solemn affair. The big bells that art used In the prison are always clanging out gome kind of an order to the prisoners or a summons to the keepers, and they always etlr a world of echoes in the silent corridors. When a prisoner is dead the fact is generally well known, and an unusual alienee IB preserved, even for this dreary place. Then the whisper ia beard that the dead man Is to be buried in the convict ground. The coffin ia brought forth, the body placed in It, the chaplain reads a service ftnd then it in in- tarred.—New York Sun. Bayard and Hi* Daughter. Secretory Bayard, by the wuy, in looking remarkably well, and hla daughter Mamie will, I understand, be the heat! of all household this winter, there U nothing In the story, I *oi naaurud at the Btete department, of h!a engagement to MiM M»rkix>, ajul h» was too ardent and a husband to »o soon take onto now Thn Victim Not Alwny« Guilty of Ab*«nt Mlmlcdncu or Ig-noranco. Attention Is periodically directed to cases of asphyxia resulting from (so It Is always termed) "blowing out the gas," the victim being charged with absent mindedness or ignorance which allowed him to extinguish the flame by blowing, and then go to l>ed to breathe the escaping gas until dead. It is my conviction that in most of these-cases the gas was not blown out This belief Is the result of my experience and observation. These difficulties, I have learned, may easily arise by the dying of the flame when turned low. At my house I have a burner which behaves well during warm weother, but which invariably goes out within a half hour when turned low during cold weather. Once, while living in another house, I retired In the evening and left the gas burning low for my room mate, who had not returned. Instead of returning he stayed with a friend, so the gas received no attention until morning. Then there was no flame, but the gas was escaping. It so happened that the windows were open sufficiently to give me fresh air and save me from the discredit of being listed among those who "blew out the gas." In this case, since the windows were open, it mny be that a light breeze blew out the flame, but I have noted cases in which the gsm was extinguished, without blowltlg, in closed rooms. A little reflection will enable us to see that a low flame may readily go out. When the flame Is low, the pressure under which the gas issues from the tip of the burner Is very light, hence the flame Is weak and the heat maintained therein is low, perhaps, but a little above what is lequircd to sustain combustion. Hence a little breath of air may for an instant reduce such heat to less than the combustion temperature. When this occurs combustion ceases, and there Is no heat present to restore Jt._Qjt_rourse the gas continues to How without burning, "and may in a few hours suffocate the occupant of the room if he be asleep. This weak flame may also be extinguished without the breath of air above mentioned. Suppose the pressure of gas bo but for an Instant interrupted. Then tho floV from the burner will for an instant cease and the flame go out; or if for an instant vapor of water Issues from the burner, then the flame will go out and the unburuod gas after ward* 1111 the room. Most of these cases of Buffocntion occur in tho rooms of hotels or elsewhere where the victims are strangers and alone. Belng'^thus situated, many timid people prefer toysleep with a burning light. They therefore "turn the gas low, and in occasional coses it goes out, as I have explained above. The moral which I believe you should present to the public is: Either let the gas burn strong or turn it entirely «ut. Do not turn it low when you ^;o to sleep.— "C.

Destitute of stimulants from without, Stho ludo-Aryan mind turned on Itself and consumed In metaphysics the Imagination which has made their cousins the leaders in the wurld'B progress today. The Inevitable of monotony crept over them. The deadly sameness of their surroundings began to tell. The torpor of the east, like some paralyzing poison, stole into their souls, and they fell asleep, and did but dream In the land they had formerly wrested from its possessors. Their birthright, passed Into the west. Artistic, attractive people that they are, their civilization Is Mke their tree flowers, beautiful blossoms destined never to bear fru4t. For whatever wo may conceive their Impersonality to foretell In the far future of another life, of one thing we may.lie-certain—It*, immediate effect cannot but be annihilating. If they continue in their'old course, their earthly career Is closed. Just as surely as morning passes ,.lnto afternoon, eo surely are these races of the far east, If unchanged, destined to disappear before the advancing peoples of the west. Vanish they will off the face of the earth, and leave tho planet the eventual possession of Hie dwellers In the day's decline.- Unless their newly Imported ideas really take root His from this whole world that .Tnpnnesp and Koreans, as well as Chinese, will .inevitably be excluded.

His hypothesis Is that water finds its way below tho crust of the earth, and then meets with carbides of metals, particularly of Iron, In a growing state. ' The water is decomposed into ita constituent gases; the oxygon unites with the Iron while the hydrogen takes up the ctrtbor. and ascends to a higher region, where part of it is condensed into mineral oil and part remains as natural gnu, to vxcnpo where It cnn ftnd nn outlet or to remain stored nt great pressure until n borehnlp is put down to provUlo it u ]III»SHK» to thu surface.
