OWES, Jan. 13.—At a meeting «, tit tn& executive committee of the lows, feommission for the Trans-Mississippi exposition at Omaha, the sub-committee, which had been placed in charge of,the preparation of tin estimate of the needs of Iowa at the exposition, Jreported to the full committee, and the tjeport was approved by that body, It was also submitted to the executive Council, and generally endorsed. It 'asks $47,400 appropriation, in addition to that already made by the Twenty* sixth general assembly, A member of the commission said that the commissioners were not appointed or paid to lobby for an appropriation; they were named to carry out the will of the state, and to expend to the best advantage the money appropriated by the legislature to secure representation for the state at the exposition. He did not anticipate that any organized effort would be made on behalf of the commissioners to secure the appropriation. On the other hand, he had become convinced from discussion with members that the legislature was largely in favor of a proper showing 1 for the state, and ho believed a good appropriation would be allowed. He believed the amount asked was reasonable, and expected it would be granted. OFFICERS OF GUARD MET. Hold Their Annual Stato Convention at DCS Molncs. DES MOINES, Jan. 15.—Tho i ninth annual meeting of the National Guard Association of Iowa, composed of the officers of the National Guard, was held in the room of the adjutant general at the state house. There was a largo attendance of prominents present, and it was the most successful convention over held by the association.

Wilkins, U. S. A., for the position of captain and assistant quartermaster in the United States army, and requesting the secretary to send copies of the resolution to the president of the United States and to each of the Iowa congressmen.

WARE IS BLAMED. w. is Charged Ifrlth Murder and Assault to DSS MOINES, Jan. 13.—J. W. Stone, who shot and killed Frank fcahler On January 5, and shot and wounded Thomas Ariss, has been indicted on two charges—one of murder in the flrst degree for the killing of Kahler, and the other of assault with intent to commit murder for the shooting and wounding of Ariss. The ease Was hurried through, so that the state would have the advantage in the fight being made to determine, if Stone is insane, where he should be confined. Stone's relatives hoped to have him placed in the insane asylum, but County Attorney Howe Sought to have him placed in the insane ward at Anamosa penitentiary. Later in Judge Conrad's court it was decided that the court had jurisdiction in the matter as against the insanity commission, and Stone will go to Anamosa. DES MOINES, Jan. l4.-^J, W. Stone, who killed Frank Kahler on the evening of January 5, and shot and wounded Thomas Ariss, at the Kahler shoe store on Walnut sti-ect, has been locked up in the ward for the criminal insane at the Anamosa penitentiary. This was done on the judgment of the court that ho should be confined there until sane, when he should be returned to this county for trial on the charge of murder in the flrst degree.

Majority of the Jury Say lie Was Driving KecklcsBly. CLINTON, Jan. 14.—After being in session two days and examining many witnesses, the jury in the Rademacher inquest rctiirned a curioiis verdict. Two jurors, F. W, Meyers and II. Frazier, signed a verdict to the effect that Charles Eademacher met his death by being thrown from a buggy which had collided with one driven by Ed. Ware, who, it was alleged, was driving recklessly. The third juror, Leopold Schneider, signed a separate verdict, recommending the case bo laid before the grand jury. The case is causing much comment. ITS PROMISE KEPT, The Dally News Good us Its Word. DES MOINES, Jan, 11,—The Des Moines Daily News pledged its subscribers some time ago that if they helped to increase its circulation to 20,000 it would permanently reduce its price to $1 a year. January 1st, although still a little short of 20,000 circulation, it rewarded the loyal efforts of its subscribers by making the reduction permanent. The News is having a big rush of new . subscriptions. Its legislative reports are the best and it has the same dispatches as the high-priced dailies. Died From Poison, BDPLINGTON, Jan. 14,—The coroner's investigation into.the death of John England who was supposed to have died from inhaling coal gas, tends to show that he died from poison, self-administered and that his wife is now Buffering from the same cause. An autopsy is now being, held to ascertain the facts. The husband and wife are said to have had much trouble with each other. Jn a barroom fight at MuchaUinoek, $ few nights since, Oliver Yancy cut and stabbed Ned Oliver, (white), bartender, and William Carey, (colored), constable. Yancy is a colored fellow and has generally been considered a bj4 man. He was overpowered and placed in jail at Qbkaloosa, His father a him brought before the com- the insane. Constable will die. Defeats Klllott for the Dnpout Cup lit Dexter 1'iirh. NEW Yomc, Jan. 17.—Fred Gilbert, of Spirit Lake, Iowa, defeated J. A. K. Elliott, the wing shot from Kansas City, in a one hundred bird match for the Dupont championship trophy and $100 a side at Dexter Park, Long Island, by a score of 90 to 0.1. The match was shot in a drizzling rain that did not deter two hundred enthusiastic sportsmen from wading more than half a mile in a slough of yellow mud to sec the contest. Elliott was a slight favorite before the start, but after the first twenty-five pigeons had left the traps, every indication pointed to a victory for Gilbert. Stolen Money Returned. MONTKZUMA, Jan. 17.—An express package containing something more than $3,000 has just arrived at Montezuma. The remarkable thing about this package is the fact that it came from the City of Mexico and was sent to the county authorities. When Howe was found in Mexico ho had $3,800 in a safety deposit vault and the Howe brothers owned and' were operating a saloon, to which the county made claim. The Mexican aiithoritics, however, refused to allow either Eowe or the county to have the money until the ownership had been properly adjusted The money now sent may bo the proceeds of the sale of the saloon or it may be the safety deposit funds. Dulniqne ex-AIderinon Indicted. DUUUQUK, Jan. 15.—The grand jury reported new indictments against the city aldermen of 1895 for raising their salaries from $300 to $500. The aldermen indicted are Culleu, Halpiu, Shea Schulte, VolgcrandKauffman. Alderman Crawford, indicted on two previous occasions, escaped this time because ho paid back to the city treasurer the alleged excess of salary taken by him. Sewer Inspector Broadhurst was indicted for uttering a forged order, which ho presented for payment to the city ti'easurer. IOWA CONUUNSKu. St. Louis, Jan. 15.—A new party was born Thursday night in the conference of the Populists and named the People"'s party. The People's party proposes to gg it alone. It has severed all connections with the national Populist committee and made all arrangements for administering its own estate without the aid or advice of any outside party. With a few exceptions the delegates declared themselves unequivocally in favor of going it alone in the future. The referendum system was most highly complimented and recommended for use among the middle-of-the- roaders in settling matters of national importance to the order. There was a practical agreement among the delegates that a national convention should be held this year. The entire afternoon and evening was spent in lengthy discussion, and it was not until a late hour that the mode of procedure for future action was agreed upon. Finally a report was adopted, in part .as follows: "To the People of the United States: —The fusion movement consummated at St. Louis in July, 189C, ami the inexcusable treatment of our candidate for vice-president in the campaign that followed gave rise to such dissatisfaction among the rank and flle of the People's party as to threaten the absolute dismemberment of the only political organization honestly contending for the social and political rights of INTERNATIONAL f«ESS ASSOCIATION., flashing and fading before her, , I.PUJNB, Jan.

The American Hook Company has filed an amended and substitiitc'd petition in the federal court at Des Moines, asking 8100,000 actual damages from President Gates for alleged libels committed against it. Cedar Rapids dispatch: A traveling medicine seller who assaulted a l!i-' year-old girl at Searsboro and who was threatened with lynching by an angry mob, is safely behind the bars at Monte/umn, He was captured after midnight by the sheriff, who with great difficulty prevented the mob from lynching him. No further trouble is feared. The prisoner steadfastly refuses to give his name. Extensive experiments have been carried on at the Iowa Agricultural College at Ames, in the government experiment station work, to ascertain the practicability of producing sugar beets in Iowa. C. F. Curtis, the successor of James Wilson as director of the station, has just completed his report. "The results," he says, "are encouraging, although there is need for much more skillful and careful work in order to fully establish the fact that Iowa is ready for the development of this industry, particularly that the faraiers are preoared to take up the matter and grow the beets successfully and in such manner as to furnish satisfactory patronage for a factory from the beginning. I think thjs one feature is now all that is lacking."

"It has been the purpose always of the committee to be courteous to the national committee, and our supreme desire has been at all times to promote a harmonious co-operation with said committee, in order that factional differences might be obliterated, our party prestige regained and our organization restored to its once splendid estate. This committee feels confident of its ability to show that it is no fault of ours that the national com- mitee is not present as a body today, but it does not choose to waste valuable time in wrangling over questions of official etiquette. We avow it to be our sincere purpose, now as ever heretofore, to promote in every honorable way the reform movement on true Populist lines, and we deem the issues too momentous and the dangers threatening free government too imminent to allow us to pause to consider personal grievances or affronts, or to permit wounded dignity, real or imaginary, to overshadow patriotic duties. "Under present conditions our beloved organization is slowly but surely disintegrating, and our comrades arc clamorous for aggressive action. Having in vain importuned those who assumed to be our superiors to permit us to aid them in the grand work of reorganizing the People's party, that it may accomplish its glorious mission, we now appeal to the people, the true source of all political power." A number of rules were adopted for the government of the national organization committee. Among them is a rule that the national organization committee shall submit to a vote of the People's party and proposition when petitioned to do so by not less than 10,000 members of the party. This concluded the work of the conference. COAL OPERATORS ANXIOUS. Watch the Proceedings at Columbus, Ohio, with Much Interest. Columbus, Ohio, Jan. 15.—It is probable that no former convention of the United Mine-Workers' Union of America has ever attracted the attention of the coal operators to the extent that the one has that is now in session in this city. Operators are arriving from all parts of the east and south, and while none of them has put in an appearance in the convention hall, all are closely following the proceedings. The report of the scale committee will be made in executive session probably Saturday, but it is said the action will be carefully guarded from the operators, and the flrst official information they will receive will be in the interstate conference of operators and miners in Chicago Monday. One question that will interest the mine operators everywhere is the evident determination of the miners to insist on a scale for machine minin'g. An indication of the manner in which CHAPTER "Folk think ye o'er-gentle," she continued, "but I've aye liked you because I was sure ye had a stubborn will when your conscience told you that the right was on your side. If that man has wronged Marjorie Annan, would you be feared to face him and avenge her?' "If he has played the villian," answered Sutherland, deadly pale, but determined, "I would hunt him down and punish him, though I had to follow him round and round the world." As the young man spoke, his face wore an expression which few had ever noticed there before; all the softness and sweetness disappeared, the lines deepened, the eyes hardened, and the entire aspect grew hard as granite, and as unrelenting "I was right," said the old lady, noticing the change. "Ye have the Hetherington temper, Johnnie Sutherland. Oh, that I were a man to gang in your place! But you shall follow them with the swiftness o' youth and the keenness o' injured love." , A few minutes later, Sutherland left the Castle, fully authorized to bring Marjorie back If possible, and armed with ample means, in the shape of a large sum of money, which Miss Hetherington thrust upon him. Left to herself in the lonely Castle, the lady retired to her private suite of apartments, and there gave way to the wild tempest of her sorrow and despair. Pride and self-reproach contended together for the mastery of her heart; but love was there, too—the intense love of maternity, which for nearly eighteen years had been flickering secretly like a feeble fire. Sitting in her arm-chair, her head lying back and her eyes fixed wildly on the window's glimmering square and the dreary prospect beyond, she fell into a troubled dream of the past. Again she was a proud, passionate girl, reckless in her comings and goings, caring for nothing in the world but the smiles of one man, and fearing nothing but the anger of her savaga brother, in whom the tigerish blood of the male Hetheringtons ran twice fiery through lust and wine. So haughty and unlovable had she seemed, so stubborn and capricious, that only one man had dared to woo her—that man her father's and her brother's enemy, the enemy of all her house. They had met in secret, and she, with characteristic stubbornness, had loved him better for the feud that might have kept them asunder. And at last, in a wild moment of impulse, she had placed herself at his mercy, and had loved him without God's blessing or the sanction of clergyman or priest. Then, to the terror and amaze of both, came the knowledge that she was about to become a mother. Not till she confessed her situation to him did she discover that the hate of her family was justified, and that she had loved a villain; for almost simultaneously came the news that he was about to marry the daughter of an English earl. She taxed him with it, and he scarcely took the trouble to deny it. He could never, he said, unite himself with one of her house. How it came about she scarcely knew; but one night, when she met her lover and faced him with wild up- braidings a hand like iron was laid upon her arm, and turning, she saw her brother Hugh. The two men faced each other; there wore a few words then a blow, and she saw her lover's face livid and bleeding as she swooned away. Later that night, when Hugh Hetherington sought her in that very chamber where she was now sitting, he had wrung the whole truth from her, and, hearing it, had struck her, too, with his clinched fist in the face. As she thought of that time, she rose feebly and looked into the glass, the mark was there yet; she would carry it to her grave. Her worn face went ghastlier yet as she remembered what had followed. How her wild brother left the place and was absent like colors ever changing in a kaleidoscope, Miss Hetherington felt again that wild, murderous thrill which hunted creatures, animal and human, often feel, and which tempts them—despairingly, deliriously—to destroy their young. She shuddered and cowered, remembering her flrst impulse. But the child had lived; and one night, holding it to her heart, the mother had disappeared from the strange town as mysteriously as she had come, leaving no trace or clew. Fascinated and afraid, she had returned to Annandale, hiding herself by day, traveling in the darkness only. How dark it had been, how the wind had roared, that night when she flitted like a ghost round tho manse, and saw the gentle old pastor counting his souvenirs within! Her intention had been to go right on to the Castle with her burden; but the sight of the good man decided her, and she acted as the reader knows—leaving the infant on the doorstep, and flitting silently away. That night the brother and sister stood face to face. What was said and done no one knew; but after a stormy scene the lady remained at the Castle. No one dreamed of connecting her with the waif just discovered at the manse door, for no one but her brother knew the secret of her fall; and as if by a special providence the corpse of a woman was washed up some days later on the Solway sands, and suspicion pointed to this woman as the mother of the little castaway. From that time forth, till the day (which came so soon) when her brother died, Miss Hetherington had little or no communion with him; and when he passed away, as wildly and darkly as he had lived, she shed no tears. She had never forgiven-him, would never forgive him this side the grave, for slaying the only man she had ever loved, and who, perhaps, might have made amends. She brooded over her wrongs till she grew prematurely old, and dwelt in the lonely house, of which she was now sole mistress, like a ghost in a sepulcher, from dismal day to day * * ' * * • * * John Sutherland lost no time in the pursuit. He hastened to Dumfries at once, and, by questioning the railway officials, soon discovered that the fugitives had gone southward by the mail the previous night. Further inquiry led him to Carlisle, arid the very Inn they had stopped at. Here he learned from the landlady that the young couple had been married and had taken the one o'clock train for London. It was all over, then; he had lost Marjorie forever. Of what avail was it now to follow and attempt to save hef ? Dazed and despairing, he found his way back to the railway station. He found the telegraph office still open, and at once dispatched a telegram to Dumfries, paying for a special messenger to take it on to Annandale Castle. The message was as follows: "They were married here this morning, and are gone south together. What am I to do?" To this came the answer: "Do not come back. Follow her- hear the truth from her own lips' Spare no expense, but find her. I leave it all to you." ve It seemed a useless errand but he was in no mood to argue or disobey Qn v,o in^ir *!,„ a i j..._. .. mouuey. was go- So he took the first train that - ing southward, and before mid-day was far on his way to London. presently at a house in Gowef BtW.

He rose from his seat, and stood awkwardly looking at the two. Marjorie rushed forward and took her husband's arm. "Ah, Leon," she said, "do not be angry because I cried a little at seeing an old friend. Though I love the past, my love for you is not less; and he has told me such strange news." Caussidiere smiled down upon her and patted her cheek. It was wonderful how self-possessed he felt now he knew that no one could step between him and his prize. "Well, my child," he said, "and.what is this great news which he has told you?" "He has told me of my mother, Leon —of my dear mother." "Positively." "Do you understand, Leon, that Miss Hetherington is my " "Assuredly I understand, little one. If I remember rightly, it fell to my share to tax the lady with the fact some time ago, and she could not deny it."

"Told you! certainly not, mon amie!> It was not my province to reveal the dark spots on the fame of the proud old lady of the Castle." ; "It was not your province to tempt an innocent girl away from her home and her friends," cried Sutherland .hotly; "yet you have done it."

There was no scandal; the world did not even know how Lochmaben perished, but she knew that he had fallen by the hand of Hugh Hetherington, in a. duel fought with swords on foreign soil. Ah, the darkness, the horror, the desolation of the next few months! No one but her brother knew her secret, and he kept it well, so that all the world heard was that the brother and sister had quarreled,, and that she had left the Castle to dwell, temporarily at least, apart. No one wondered. The Hetherington temper was well known a by-word; it was as natural that such a brother ana sister should hate each other as that swords should clash or CHAPTER XXIII.

He was walking along moodily, with his eyes on the ground; he had passed into the neighborhood of Leicester Square, when suddenly he started and trembled from head to foot. A voice, it seemed to him a familiar voice, struck upon his ear. It was speaking volubly in the French tongue. Hurriedly he drew aside to allow the person to pass him by; then looking up, he recognized the French teacher— Caussidiere, Yes, it certainly was he, beyond all manner of doubt! He was carrying on such an excited conversation with his companion that he not even noticed Sutherland, whose sleeve he had almost brushed. was to WOMAN AND THE CAMERA. Photography as a Profession Should Appeal to the Fair Sex. Miss Frances Benjamin Johnston, the photographic artist, writes, in the Ladles' Home Journal, on ."What a Woman Can Do With a Camera," telling .the requisites for artistic and financial success in the pursuit of photography as a profession. "It is a profession," she contends, "that should strongly appeal particularly to women, and in it there are great opportunities for a good-paying business— but only/ under very well-defined conumons, The prime requisites— as summed up in my mind after long experience and' thought are these: The woman who makes photography profitable must have, as to personal qualities, good common sense, unlimited patience to] carry her through endless failures,' equally unlimited tact, good taste, a quick eye, a talent for detail, and a genius for hard work. In addition, she needs training, experience, some capital, and a field to exploit.
