The strikers are making the attempt at Braidwood to prevent the Alton hauling coal. If successful an attempt on the Big Four at Kankakee may follow.

TEKKE HAUTE, Ind., June 3 —Uov. Matthews will wait until Sheriff Mills of Sullivan county makes one more effort to move tho captured coal at Shelburn on the Evansvillo ifc Torre Haute road before he orders out the militia. Yesterday the sheriff again read the governor's proclamation to the men, but they did not listen to it with respect. They said that, it did not apply to them at all, because it was addressed to organized bodies of men, and that they arc not organized, not even belonging to the -Miners' union. They were determined that the coal should not bo moved and whuu the engine was coupled to the train the men and women climbed up, set the brakes and uncoupled the cars.

"*• Have they ever been considered, ever classified and arranged? have conventions ever discussed them and brainy men and women ever fought for them? and what besides a punishment (generally over-severe for some great fault and not in one case out of a hundred properly adapted to the child's temperament) is the result of any attempt on tho part of the small sufferer to secure them? Children have a right to the utmost care, attention and consideration, even when it involves serious discomfort and trouble on the part of tho parent. The children did not insist upon being born, they had no voice in tho matter. To please ourselves we bring a little soul and body into this world, endow it with strong feelings and tastes, and daily hurt the ono and ignore tho other to suit our own convenience, because "they are .only children and will not know any bettor." Never was there such a fallacy. They may forget quickly, but while they last their small woes are as deep as ours, and the little heart which is hurt by thoughtlessness aches as sorely as it will in tho years to come. Instead of laughing at tho quick consolation we should thank God for it. Children have a right to justice^ and they almost never get it. There was once a little girl who always had to choose between butter and molasses on her griddle cakes, Avhilo her parents had both. A trifle —yes, of course, but not to that child; it rankled all her life long; the injustice of it struck her. afresh every day that came : and no love nor attention which her parents lavished on her in other ways over wiped out that memory. They are expected to show self control that would honor a mature pei 1 son. They sit at a table loaded with dainties, and must oat uninviting plain food, seldom varied and served in a not very tempting manner. They are culled greedy if they beg- for what every one around them is eating; and if they do not finish all on their plates, in many cases tho cold, unappetising mess is served them again "for discipline and to teach them not to be greedy." Just try that once on a grown person. They have a right to their own lit- tlo persons, and are they .not con- stanlly taken up, kissed and tossed around by peoplo whom they intensely dislike and whose touch is hateful .to them? These are only a few of the wrongs children suffer every day and all day, and how any child grows up swect-naturcd is a question not easily answered. The greater rights, such as tho right to a healthy body, a clear mind, and a proper start in life, are subjects for a deeper discussion than. I dare trust myself to enter upon; but certainly a child lias a right to th<i same consideration a grown person would demand, and cortiiinly no duty a child can o\vo a parent is equal to that the parent owes a child which was brought into this world not of its own volition, forced to grow up, flung into the battle of life, and handicapped with the results of cho mistakes and misdeeds of two. or throa generations,—Uonahoo's Magazine. 4UUTJ4.

JJlinojg ••Note* unil Letters," The writing-desk is a very important part of the furniture of a woman's own room. There are peoplo who scramble along contentedly and somewhat clumsily with a small portfolio, part of a bureau drawer, or an old atlas, in which to keep their correspondence, their paper, and pens. Everyone has been in houses whore the request for writing material occasioned a search all over the house for the family inkstand and the family supply of piper. SuoU houses, however, da not in those days exist in cities, where very much of the commerce of life must needs be carried on by moans of notes.

A well-furnished writing-desk, with ptvper of different sizes, envelopes to match, sealing-wajf, stumos, jind oil the dainty accessories of the writing- table, is something no woman can afford to do without.

An Englishman has invented a "flro screen and plate warmer," which is really useful. It secures the room from sparks and keeps children and dresses from tho fire, whilo at tho same time it is mounted with a roller blind that shields persons from heat at pleasure. When this blind is drawn partially down, anyone sitting near tho flro can warm tlie feet whilo the head is cool. The blind looks well made of hand-wrought needle-work; asbestos cloth is preferable to any other, being fireproof. The screen is fitted with shelves facing- tho room, which can be raised, lowered, or removed atpleasure. Those arc shelves to be tisod for anything' to be kept warm or hot.

Tinted papers, ragged edges and eccentricities of every kind arc not admissible.—Harper's Bazar. Motf to Cook Vegetable*, There is one positive rule for cooking all vegetables—they should be put in-boiling water when set on the stove to cook. The stronger flavored varieties, such as carrots, cabbages, onions and.dandelionsjshould be Well covered xvith a generous quantity of boiling wa'ter, but the more delicate species, as, for instance, peas, asparagus and potatoes, need only to bo covered with the. \vater. All green vegetables should be cooked with the o.iver partially off the stewpan, as it gives them a better flavor and better color. The actual .time necessary to '.ook even a potato properly is as much an item to be learned as arty other detail in the great system of food preparation. Potatoes should cook well and thoroughly in thirty minutes, provided they aro covered with boiling water and placed on au even fire. They should be kept boiling after they begin, but not furiously, as that is apt to break the surface before the canter is clone. Tlie time of cooking must be calculated from the moment the. boiling watsr is poured over them. When the potatoes are done the water should be poured off and the steam allowed to escape. Baked potatoes take about forty-five minutes to cook. Turnips if sliced will take "about; thirty minutes, if put in whole forty minutes' time will be needed to cook them thoroughly. Peas and asparagus, if fresh, require from twenty to thirty-five minutes. Onions should be covered with plenty of boiling water and cooked for one hour. Beets, when young and fresh, will cook in forty minutes, but as they grow larger they require longer cooking. Cauliflower should be put head down into a stewpan filled with about three quarts of boiling water. Cover and cook gently for thirty minutes. String beans require two hours. At the end of the first hour a teaspoonful of salt to each quart of beans should bo added. After they are done all the'water should be poured off and to the beans should be added one tablespoonful of butter and four tablespoonfuls of boiling water. Return to the fire for three minutes and serve. Fresh lima beans need one hour's cooking. Dried ones must bci put to soak over night in one quart of cold water and cooked in a quart of boiling water for an hour and fifty minutes, the cold water of course', having been drained off. These are the commonest vegetables and the commonest ways of cooking them, but unless attention is given to even these small details tho ordinary meal will be robbed of much of its flavor, for the vegetable standbys are unpalatable and indigestible unless cooked as long and in the manner that they should be. mttle Girls.

We are, fchef efofe, floi a menace, but a gtiard,n* tee of peace, and 1 know that our pacific sentiments are also shared by tha emperors of Germany, and Austria, and by the czar. What; sovereign would, with the present condition of armaments and the constant improvement of artillery, to launch his people into war? To whichever side the victory might fall it would be so hot rlbl& —it would bring with it sUcih heda* tombs of dead and such rivers of blbOd —that no emperor, no king coull con- 1 template it for his armies without & shudder. Yes, all Europe desires peace, and has every reason to desire it. . After the Next Sen Plgh't When other one battle ship captures an- in midocean in the next naval war, what is she to do with her prize? asks the Philadelphia Times. In the old days of wooden walls there was no difficulty in the practice. If the captured ship could float, a prize crew was put aboard and all practicable sail was made for the nearest friendly port, while the victor continued on her cruise; or if both ships were badly injured, both put into harbor. But nowadays the position of a prize crew would be far from commanding. The captured vessel could not be managed by her captors—she would have to remain in charge of her own engineers and her own firemen, and the victors, instead of sailing the ship, while the prisoners remained under hatches, would be reduced to the status of a police. And thus would Ijhe Opportunity for a recapture be greatly increased. For, while in the old days the entire captured crew were disarmed and imprisoned, the noncombatants of a captured battleship would have to be given their liberty, practically speaking, and much might be accomplished by a couple of second engineers with their wits about them. For instance, would it be so difficult to superinduce a slight explosion in the port engine and -under cover of the confusion to liberate the prisoners? Again, the armament of a modern battle ship would complicate affairs. Relatively to the powers of a machine gun the prize crew would be greatly disproportionate in strength, since the chances for the prisoners to obtain control of one of these engines would be increased by the freedom of their noncombatants. Altogether the number of men required for police duty on a captive battle ship would be very large, and a victorious ship would have to reduce the efficiency of her own gun crews to an unpleasant extent. It would probably be found necessary in almost every case for the captor to stand by and accompany her prize home across the Atlantic or the Pacific, as the case might be. And this would be a double incentive to,tho'eonquered to effect a wift and noiseless recapture of their own ship, for if they did so one unexpected torpedo or discharge of a 12- inch gun, carefully aimed, might very easily turn the fortune of war entirely in their favor. In other words, ana not to define too closely upon the possibilities of the case, the capture of a battle ship in an ocean duel in the next naval war will by no means ease the mind of the successful commander. He will have a leviathan on his hands that it will tax all his energy and cleverness to bring safely into port, and there may be moments when he will be tempted to lock up every mother's son pf her engineers and firemen in the military tops and run her home under jury sails. JVEW JERSEY COAST SINKING—A curious piece of contemporary geology is being worked out in New Jersey. The whole coast has long been sinking,and the process is still going on. A euri- PUS industry is carried on in the southern part of the state—the mining f Pr cedar. Some of those noble trees, exhumed from their swampy burial, exceed three feet \n diameter, with the timber perfectly sound. The "lay" P) these uprpoted trees, according tp the American Naturalist, indicates the devastation, prpbably, pf extraordinary cyclones, pecurring at immense inte r- vals of time, thus leveling pne forest upon another that had been thrown down long before, The cedars growing there tP-day send their roots among their long-buried ancestors, The rings upon some of the exhumed trees show a growth of fifteen hundred pr ppssibjy two thousand years, and the existence pf the last twp buried forests below the present growth is indisputable, HUMBERT pf Italy last week granted an interview to a journalist, and among other things said: It is asserted that Italy wishes to put the match to the powo>v mine. This is absurd. Nothing allows Italy to go tp war—neither her budget, which is go badly disordered, nor our wishes, nor our plans, nor our reason. We are too young a nation to risk such an ad- «rentiu'§. We have sacrificed everything to Achieve our national unity. Tbftt iJftity i» BOW twenty-flve years pjd, &nd if WQuid be njadness to stake of the Foreign Affairs committee wants the United States to complete and own the Nicaragua canal. In' part he says: To the United States, in a political and strategic view and as a sea rouks to- our Pacific coast, shortened by more than half the length of the present ocean route, this waterway is of greater importance than the Suez canal is ' to Europe and Great Britain, or than the freedom of the Bosphorus would be to Russia. If action by congress is delayed unreasonably the company will be compelled to either abandon the concession and lose the money it has already invested in the canal or accept the offers made to them by foreign capitalists. If either of these results •should f bllow the inaction of congress tho people could not censure the canal company. The plan and certain effects of this bill, if it becomes a law, will be to put into active business employment $100,000,000 of money borrowed from our own people, without risk to the government. Such a movement at this time would stir all industries into activity and release other hundreds of millions of dollars that are now being hoarded or employed in gambling in stocks. It would ' furnish good and wholesome employment to fifty thousand Americans that are marching on the high. ways, begging for work and often for food. It would yield to the United States at the rate of $1 per ton for canal charges, not less than$4,OOQ,- 00 J per annum of dividends on its $70,000,000 of stock in the canal. THE New Jersey State Road Improvement association is making an aggressive campaign to have the state road appropriations increased from $75,000 to $125,000. The practical operation of the existing road law is so satisfactory as to awaken a general demand for further state aid, though the system is yet in an experimental stage, and will not be in full working operation for a year or two yet. For the present year specifications for county boards of freeholders have been approved that will use up all of the 875,000 appropriated, arid applications are on file for aid in building fifty-one miles of road, and others are coming. From the present outlook the state could profitably expend 8300,000 this year in aiding counties to build permanent highways. CONFIDE IN MOTHER.—It is sorrowfn that the first stirrings of sentiment in the youth or maiden should be withheld from the mother's judicious guid- a nee, and yet it is the old, old story and where one son or daughter will carry hopes, plans, purposes and submit them to the warm, loving, sympathetic directipn of the mother, the ninety-nine yearning to do likewise will stand afar off, or at the best disclose only so much as will leave the mother as much in the dark as before, and consequently, most surely keep her not only not in contact sympathetically, but in absolute ignorance of the real true heart beating so near, and yet so far. AMMONIA IN THE HOUSE.—No housekeeper should be without a bottle pf spirits of ammonia; for besides its medical value, it is invaluable for household purposes. It is nearly as useful as soap, and its cheapness brings it within the reach of all. Put a teaspoonful of ammonia to a quart pf warm spap-suds, dip in a flannel cloth, and wipe off the dust and fly specks, and see fpr yourself how much labor it will save. No scrubbing will be needful. It will cleanse and brighten silver wonderfully. To a pint of suds mix a teaspoonful of the spirits, dip in your silver spoons, forks, etc., rub with a brush and polish with chamois skin.
