Btrlka — FttAfrctsco, Gal., itttly 14,—Since Wednlisdav'6 horrible work at the trestle west of Sacramento the strike (situation in California has been less alarming. In Oakland there was riot'' ing since early in the nvorning. The trouble began at daybreak, when a •mob of several hundred strikers •rushed into the yards on the mole. They ^'killed" all the locomotives that liatbbeetLfifed up,and in order to fur' ther blockade the tracks derailed one i locomotive and a long line of coaches. 'Later in the morning another crowd .of rioters ran to the yards and wrecked •< a turn-table by shoving a heavy freight car into the oit. Damage was also • done at the round house. The railroad .company's deputy sheriffs and United IJStntes deputy marshals offered little {resistance to the riotous strikers. (United States troops are now on hand laud all is quiet. At Sacramento the conditions of martial law prevail No trains are running there. At,a late hour the 1 wreckers had not recovered the bodies of Engineer Clark and thn three !soldiers which lie in the water beneath the wreck. During the day several citizens were arrested and also thrown into the guard house for offenses against the military law as laid .•down by the federal and state commanders. The militiamen on guard at the water front had several skirmishes with civil ans. The trains are running regularly out of San Francisco on the coast division. In southern 'California the blockade is broken, though few trains are running there •without military guard. The attorney-general .has ,-offered a .reward of $5uO each or 82,000 in all for testimony which will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or .persons concerned in the wreck at Sacramento which resulted in the almost immediate death of Engineer Clark and three regular United States soldiers. The reward is ,$iOO for conviction of the murderer of each person ; killed. SACKAMENTO, Cal., July 14.—Private Dougan of Battery L.

WASHINGTON, July 14.—It was officially announced at the white house last night that the President will appoint a commission, by the authority given him by the arbitration, act of 1S88. to investigate the labor trotib es at Chicago and elsewhere and report to the President and congress. The commission to be appointed has Hot been selected, and it will be a number of days before the appointments are announced. This determination on the part of the President was arrived at after an interview with Secretary- Treasurer Hayes of the Knights of Labor, McGuire and French of the ex- ectitive-;committee, and Mr. Schoenfa- ber, who were introduced to the President yesterday by Senator Kyle, and who came bearing credentials from the American Railway Union, the Pullman employes and several labor organizations. Situation Improved tit Toledo. TOLKDO, Ohio, July]?.—The railway authorities claim the sit nation is somewhat improved. The outlook on tho Hocking Valley is unchanged with the exception of the action taken by the engineers and firemen, which was unexpected. They have declared positively that they will not work with any non-union crews. A hundred United States deputy marshals are guarding things on the Wheeling anil Lake Eric. There is no improvement on the Clover Leaf. Ail the Wabash brakemen have returned to'work and all trains nre moving on time. Tho Ohio Central is trying lo move a little freight but with poor success. Freights commenced on the Ann Arbor again. Michigan Central switchmen have gone back to work. Tho Pennsylvania switchmen are still out The Hocking Valley is some what crippled but improving.

The two appeared intently watching the cereinony going on in front of the altar, and copied each movement made by tho bride .and bridegroom whom the priest was making man and wife. As they knelt down, so did the Other couple kneel, and when the faultlessly attired bridegroom placed the ring on the blushing bride's finger the young mulatto did likewise, only.his ring was of metal und'tho bride less. fair. At length, when the procession emerged from the church, the humble couple followed, looking as if they thought they were quite as much married as their more fortunate brethren. It transpired that such was indeed their belief. The two lovers, who .are "models" known to many artists here, had no money wherewith to pay the priest or the registrar's fees, so they thought a wedding at secondhand would bo just as effectual and cost nothing, mm BOYS AND A POEM TO LEARN AND AMUSING STORIES TO READ.

American Federation of Labor Asks Him to Join the Conference. CHICAGO, .July u,— The national executive board of the American Federation of Labor began its session at 11 o'clock yesterday morning at the Brigga house. In addition to the executive board there wwe other heads of national and international organi- sations in attendance. The event of the day session was the sending of a telegram to President Cleveland invit- ;JP# Wro to attend the conference in 1 person pr by proxy. "When, this question was brought up at the afternoon cession considerable discussion was «voked, It v,f * urged by some of the members that the President's attitude toward the strike had been decidedly unfavorable so far, and that it would b« of little uhe to expect any sympathy or encouragement at Washington.

MABSIO.ON, Ohio, July K.—Arrangements are being made by the Wheeling and Lake Erie road as rapidly as possible to resume operations without the assistance of the American Railway Union. Santa Ve Attacked In Texan. DALLAS. Texas, July 14.— The northbound passenger train on the Santa Fe, due to leave here at 3 p rn., is still here. Thn fireman refused to go unless the Pullman sleeper was detached. The engineer also quit his engine, refusing to go out with a nonunion fireman. At 8:45 p. m. the switch engine crews struck, making the tie-up on the Santa Fo complete. A general tie-up of the whole system in Texas is now looked for. AN Making War on Union Men. LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 14.—Division Superintendent Pike of the Louisville & Nashville railroad has issued an order requiring all members of the American ^Railway Union in • the employ of the road to withdraw from the order. The local lodge of the American Railway Union decided not to issue any cards of withdrawal. All trains are running on schedule time. Brlilgu JiuriieU In Indiana. WATKBI.OO, Ind., July 14.—A sey- enty foot bridge, three miles north of this city on the Fort Wayne & Jackson branch of the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railroad, was burned early yesterday morning.

Summer Draperies fur the WIndowH. The season has arrived when silken draperies and dust-collecting portieres must be packed away in the camphor- chest until fall. How to drape the summer window so that it will be artistic, cool and inviting is a question of importance, says a writer in the New York World. Dainty curtains of white dotted swiss or mull appeal to every woman. When tied back with delicately tinted ribbons they lend an air to the room which is at once cozy and homelike. Sheer muslin with a scalloped border may be bought this season for iO cents a yard. About five yards will ba required for a window. This make a dainty and inexpensive drapery. The ruffled dotted Swiss curtains are quite a fad. They sell at prices ranging from $"> to $10 a pair. They also come with a tucked border instead of ruffled. These curtains are tied back much higher than formerly, the rullle falling like a graceful jabot to the floor. Scotch guipure curtains in white with a point d'esprit effect are also in favor. They cost from S3.50 to $3.30 a pair. One of the. most exquisite of the summer draperies is a silken fabric called "sunshing." It is fifty inches wide and sells for $3 a yard. Another of the new draperies which may b3 used for a window curtain or a "portiere is the glistening Indian crepe. It comes in all colors with the conventional figure outlined in gold. An artistic pattern is in pale gray blue crepe, with the empire design in a darker tint and worked in gold threads. These curtains sell for 810.30 and §12,50 a pair. The cross-striped silk and cotton curtains make excellent drapery for a country house. They come iu all colors—cream- striped with a wavy silk line in dark blue, and white with groon, old rose, or violet. The curtains are finished with a fringe border of the same col oils the stripe, Price 8? to §10 a pair. for Atmttcnr FlorUts. A young girl, whose class colors are blue and white, made a tour of the florists in search of blue carnation with most discouraging results. They could be found but were too expensive. A way was discovered out of the difficulty by a friend, who suggested putting tho stems of white carnations in bluing water. The experiment proved a great success, and the class will no doubt appear with blue and white carnations without the assistance of a high-priced florist. Purple violets may be changed to a beautiful blue by putting a little ammonia in the water and letting them remain over night • The Prlco of a MuHtaohe. A woman of Lindenberg, in a frolicsome humor, took tho liberty to cut oil a portion of a huge mustache sported by a well-known personage of that ilk. The injured party was greatly enraged and set up a claim of damages. The case was tried at the local police court and the fair offender was mulcted in a fine of 10 marks, to be paid into the poor box, and 50 marks compensation to the plaintiff. Judging from the size of the piece cut off the entire mustache would come to about $4,300 marks (£340). A Scotch Laddie.

It is all very well to talk about girl friends, brothers or husbands being the best confidantes in the world, but the one who is ia reality the only true and sincere sympathizer and listener is one's mother. If you own such a rare and precious gift don't turn aside to pour your woes and joys into other ears, for life contains no bond so true, no sympathy so ready and hearty as that wl.ich binds a mother heart and soul to the interests of her children. Just as soon as you feel averse to tolling your mother nil that is in your heart you may rest assueed that you are on the wrong track, and the sooner you turn back to the path from which you have stray ed the pleasanter will be the days, iho more bli&sfuily dreamless the nights.

Boys usually make their observations by means of a triple hook and a piece of red flannel, but a boy in-C'on- necticut, known to the writer, took twenty-eicrht one clay with his bare hands. Connecticut is a flno state for frogs. There at old Windhatn was fought the famous "Battle of the Frogs." It was during the French an.l Indian war in 1758. Wind ham was than the most important frontier town of Eastern Connecticut. Colonel Dyer, a prominent citizan, was raising an army to oppose the Indians at Crown Point. The town wai alive with excitement. One very dark night the people were awakened by strange sounds, and,at .once..thought the Indians were upon them. Seizing- guns, swords and axes, the man rushed out to meet the enemy. But no enemy was to be seen. Still they felt a force of French and Indians must be at hand, for hoarse voices could ba heard calling for Windham's 'prominent military leaders. , "Colonel Dyer and Elderkin, too!" "Colonel Dyer and Elderkin, too!" The town was up all night. When day broke the mystery was accidentally solved. A mile away from tho village lay a b'g marshy pond inhabited by myriads of frogs. A drought had nearly dried up the water, re.luc- ing it to a tiny streamlet, and for this scanty supply the poor -thirsty creatures ha:l fought eiich other, until- thousands lay dead on cither side of the rill. This battle made Windham famous. For years the inhabitants felt badly teased and insulted by its mention. Now, however, the story is no longer a joke but a prized tradition. Snakes are as fond of frogs as the traditional Frenchman who esteemed them a delicacy. A frog has often been found swallowed whole and alive in a slaughtered snake. One snake known to a friend of the chronicler fared badly enough by his greed for his favorite dainty. .He had swallowed one frog and then had started to crawl through a crevice in a stone wall. Before he had dragged through his entire length ha espied another plump little fellow and took him in, whereupon he found himself securely fastened down under,the stones, una- ( ble to move either way, and was dig-' patched by the spectator. Naturalists consider the frog a very interesting fellow and other observant people have learned curious facts concerning these amphibious creatures. A gentleman living in the southern part of France had a very large frog pond on his grounds and was fond of studying the habits of its inhabitants. One day he saw a great change in the appearance of a certain frog of which he had made a pet. It looked as if it had in some way acquired a pair of tho puffed'breeches which gentlemen used to wear in the courts of James tho First of England and Louis the Thirteenth -of France, This change made; him curious ' to know what it meant and all the more so when he found that almost every day more and more of the frogs were wearing the same queer looking things. By watching carefully the 'gentleman soon • found the ' cause of the itrange, new article of frog dress. The mother frog, it seems, considers that her duty is discharged when she lias laid her eggs. These all adhere together, forming a long chain of many links. As soon as she has deposited these on the bank of-the pond she hops away, seeming to forget all about them, and they would never hatch out if the father frog did not come to the rescue. With no little difiiculty he winds these chains of neglected eggs around his own thighs —th'us producing tha appearance of the puffed breeches. He then pyoceeds to hide himself among the marshy grasses around the pond until the eggp are ready to hatch out. Then, he goes into the water, In a little while the shells burst, letting out the young tadpoles, which immediately swim away without so mn,clj as ft "thank you."' Another very motherly father of the frog family is found in South America,, in ChilV He is provided ft Iftrge sac, or pouch, which ex. pyor tho whole eurfaes of his , frpm, the mqu,tU downwards.

Getting lifftily to Fly. When a cocoon maks'? its way ont o£ its house, where it snugly lived all winter, it is no longer a cocoon, bat tt butterfly; yet its wings are crumpled and limp as the petals of a rosebiid* and for all the goo.l it gets from them it might as well still be a worm. The first thing the new-born Creature does is to get those wings intd fiymg shape. The process begins by a little heaving motion of the muscles at the jointa of the Wing?, just as though ib were shrugging its shoulders at thff world into which it has stepped. Thi» shrug is repeated again an I again* sometimes the exercisj seems t") quite exhaust it, and then it rests quietly, •" hanging motionless to the twig, or whatever it has fastened its tiny claws upon, for several minutes, when tha shrugging process is renewed. Little by little the wings lose their- crumpled appearance, strength is infused into the veins wh'ch mark them as do the veins in a leaf .gradually the gauzy things unfold and expand until they lift, light and airy and strong, Sometimes a whole day is spent thus before the first attempt is made at flying. What a lesson is there for us, creatures of haste and impatience.— Inter-Ocean. "French as She Is Spoke." In one. of his entertainments Mr. George Grossmith extracts consider- al)le fun from "Franch as sha is spoke" by the schoolboy. In a clever- skit on the French play that forms part of the inevitable prize day. program; all the dialogue is of tha conventional "First French Course" order, viz., "Have you satin the garden of my'wifi's uncle?" •'- "N.i; but I hiva found the pencil of ray fathar's sist'sr." I was raininled of this the other day when calling on a friend whose three small nieces had just arrived from South America. Tha chiLlrenVi native tongue was Spanish, but evidently a "First English Course" had been use 1 to prepare them for their, visit to this country, anil their quaint high-flown phrasss wera a constant 1 source of mirth to the household.! They invariably preface! each san- 1 tence with "It is that." "Juanita, why havju't you brushed your hair?" said my frien I to ths dark-eyed eldest girl, of about si.v. 'It is that I failed to discover my! brush," was the stitoly reply. At that moment the baby upstairs sat up' a piercing yell, whereupon tha seconJl child, withhan.l upruisa.l, rem u-ked, with inflnita solemnity, "Hark! tha infant wails."
