CHICAGO, July 29 -The day'o developments in the investigation into the criminal deeds of H. H. Holmes m Chicago closed the net still tightet around Pat Quiulan and added still more proof to that already existing that he was an accomplice of the arch murderer and fully cognizant of most, if not all, of his deeds. The name of Milfotd C. Cole, formerly of Baltimore, was also added to the list of Holmes' possible victims, as was also that of another womau^who was for a short time a resident of the Castle in Sixty-third street. Officer Pitzpatrick has arrested a tnan iu Englewood who is believed to be H. S. Mack, who Worked for Holmes during the last six months he lived in the Sixtythird street house. Is on Important Witness. Mack's identification with the druggist's operations was furnished by Rail road Detective Young, who used to live in the Castle. The police have been looking for him since Friday, and now that they have him in the toils, they admit unreservedly that they have the most important witness they have yet rounded up. Whether he can tell anything about Holmes personally they are not certain but that he knows all about Pat Quiu lau and his wife and their connection with Holmes they feel sure, from certain admissions he has made to friends. Charles M. Chappell, the man who gave the'police the information that he had articulated skeletons, for Holmes, and had had bodies Taken Away From the Caatle, was an all-round mechanic for Holmes, and had built two tanks in the basement of the Castle for the destruction of bodies which Holmes might wish to get rid of. In them went the bodies of that long list of women, once tenants of the Castle, but now numbered with the dead. Chappell's admissions are the most remarkable and damaging yet received by the police against Holmes and his confederates. They reveal the exist ence of a complete system of machinery in the Castle for the commission of murder, commencing with the steel vault, the dissecting table and ending in the acid tanks. In addition to the confessions of Chappell, the police also located some of the clothing of Minnie Williams and Julia Conner which Holmes gave away after they disappeared. BURIED IN QUICKLIME.

The workmen, continuing their search in another portion of the basement, found a second bed of quicklime. In this, just before their labors ended for the day, they discovered one of the bones of a human body. The first body is supposed to be that of Pearl Conner, the daughter of Julia L. Conner, former wife of C. I. Conner, once of Muscatine, la., later of this city. Both the mother and child have been missing since the summer of 1892. The woman was betrayed by Holmes, her husband secured a divorce from her and she lived with Holmes at the castle. Some time in July or August, 1893, she and the child disappeared. ^_ Claims Alleged Victims Are Alive. CHICAGO, July. 29.— A local newspaper is in receipt of an anonymous letter which says that Minnie Williams, Mrs. Conner, an unknown man and a little • boy are living on Wabash ivenue some where between Forty- first and Fifty-second streets. The writer says he is a friend of Holmes, and that he knows Minnie Williams and Mrs, Conner well. A MAN'S LAUGH NEVER CHANGES. tfow the fact Was Illustrated bj- fti) Incident tn Chicago. If the Eertillion system of identification had a phonographic record of the laughs of criminals it would probably be as near perfect as an identification system can be. The fact that man comes into the World wailing has been regarded as a sort of prophecy of the truth that as a rule the sorrows of life outnumber the joys when all the returns are in, but an optimist might see an opposite significance in the fact that a man's laugh remains the same through all the changing years. When the cares of manhood succeed to the happy go lucky daya of boyhood, this laugh of his may'bo called into use, as it were, very littJe, but when it is put into operation it is the same old laugh, and every boyhood friend would know it instantly. An old soldier who fought through the war with Fred Hartwick, who drives a mail collector's wagon on the North Side, happened to be in Chicago for a week not long since. He heard that Mr. Hartwick was on its postmaster's staff and went to the federal building to find him. He took his station at a point past which all the carriers filed to report for duty, and as Hartwick came along some one pointed him out. Without disclosing his own identity the veteran approached and began asking Hartwick if he remembered various incidents in the history of their regi meut during the war. Of course be die and very soon fell into conversation, or gauiziug a kind of campfire meeting between themselves. One member of the regiment was in business in New Orleans, another was in a bank down in the state, several were farming, one was the local manager for one of the big commercial agencies in one of the large cities, and so on. Several times Hartwick asked his old companion at arms his name, but the latter only smiled and went on with the conversation. Finally, when it became necessary for them to separate, as Hartwick was obliged to go out on his run, the man laughed outright as he said: "Well, Fred, I never thought you'd forget me after what we went through together." 'The minute he laughed," said Mr. Hartwick, in relating the incident, "I knew just who he was and all about him, but I hadn't seen him for 30 years, and he had changed so I couldn't have told him from Adam. His laugh had grown older, too, of course, but it was 'the same old laugh. "—Chicago Tribune. GALL1ON BROS,, Baneroff, la, WANTED BALESMENi „„ . A tfood chance! fjori't miss it!

It is impossible to read even'the" least- dogmatic books on etiquette without being oppressed with the conviction that a heavy and binding addition has been made to the code of morals in the bylaws which have to do with visiting cards, invitations, conventional phrases and other minor but vigorous formulas. It has been reiterated by writers on these subjects that not a single rule of etiquette is arbitrary, but that all prove their reason in the very nature of things, and that those who disregard them simply show their own lack of insight and incapacity to appreciate genuine refinement. While this is all very well for society people pure and simple or those who have other definite and absorbing work in life compliance with all the thousand and one trifling points cf etiquette is an utter impossibility. The question then becomes, Shall such persons be excluded from society or be.allowed to enter it on their own terms? Society might be so conducted as to make of it a charming and delightful recreation instead of a tyrannical business, and those who see this clearly can do much toward making it so.—Philadelphia Press. The Electric Candle, The electric candle is in great request in England for the lighting and decoration of dining and other tables. An ingenious device for lighting the candles is provided by placing small pads under the tablecloth, and taking the current from them by means of two pin points in the base of the candlestick, The can^ dies of course are extinguished on being taken from the table and are relighted when they are replaced in the proper position. They are so arranged that the bulb and the glass imitation of a wax candle can be removed, when the can* dlestiok can be used for an ordinary candle, When used with, shades of colored silk, the electric candle makes one of the prettiest additions* to a dinner table that is possible toi»agipe,««-MaQlnwst- subscribers whose place of;doing business is in some other town in the county than Alffbna, an arrangement has been made by the publisher whereby payments on subscription to the paper may be made at any one of the following named banks: BANCROFT—Farmers' and Traders' Sayings Bank.
