Good meetings huve before been held at Hazel Patch, and the isouml money cause gains ground dally. • A Washington paper says: A good deal of quiet talk has been occasioned ftbout the army and navy headquarters because the United States has finally decided that military and naval officers, attaches to line legations at Washington, shall not be permitted to see every new thing- the genius, and skill of our own officers have evolved, which foreign nations might want, unless the business can bomadereciprocal andthe American officers at Paris, Berlin and London be allowed to exploit similar secrets of the engineer and ordnance bureaus of these countries.

WOMAN WHO CLEANS A CITY. Mn. FlckerUl Bid LowMt »nd ObtklBMl th« Coatnct. Denver has a new garbage contractor, mod it is a woman. In spite of her aex, the preserves once thought to be tho •ole and undisputed possession of th» sterner sex have been invaded, and this contract has gone to a woman simply because she was the lowest bidder, and now all that she asks Is a fair field and no favors. The new contractor is Mm. Mary M. Pickerill, and she says that she means business. Certainly she has given that impression since taking hold of the work. There has been a veritable garbage war, but it has closed with Mrs. Pickerill, enterprising 1 contractor, ahead, and her antagonists are obeying the law as laid down by her, > Mrs. Pickerill is a widow and haf breuffbt up ber family of children unaided.

Some of the letters that Mayor T.hacher'gets are curiosities In their way. People from out of town who wish to find out anything in the city of Albany invariably write letters to the mayor. It doesn't make any difference what the information desired relates to, he mayor, they think, ought to know, lays the Albany Argus. .

This man believes that slavery is still an in- titution In this great land, and is igno- ant of the glorious, fact that the maser's whip,hasn't cracked for 30 years, le never heard of the president's proclamation, never knew that the north had whipped the south, and that a million lives hod been sacrificed to free the slave.

This statement is made on the authority of aPi.ttsbnrgh manufacturer of bicycle tubing. He said that tho meeting just held at the Hotel Waldorf in New York was not a. g.iUheri'ng' of wrought iron pipe manufacturers, as reported. Instead, it was a meeting of tube makers, and, as a result of t/heir deliberations, cheap bicycles "will be forced from the market. For some time the manufacturers of high-grade bicycles have been trying to ; shut out the cheap wheels and-thus maintain the high prices that the .best bicycles commaud- ,ed. : They h.iye succeeded'in doing this through the manufacturers of tubing.

Another one of woman's rights has been attacked—the right of.search, the same privilege for which England contended in the war of 1812, and as England loHt'lhc.u so femininity seems about to lose to-day. A Chicago firm of wholesale clothers has invented a locked pocket, to be put in trousers, coats and vests. The fad has captured male wearers of clothes and bids fair to beaome popular. It is an attachment by which pockets can be locked, and any attempt to go through them will be foredoomed to failure. That the effort to introduce these poche-te is likely to be opposed by women is certain. The very means which the manufacturers use to advertise them insures this. A circular issued by the firm reads: ."You have been there. You have waked up in the morning and*found your spare cash gone and not known how It has vanished. Your wife denies that she has been through your pockets, and you cannot prove that strc lias done so. You can prevent such oc-' currenccs in future by piacing our "patent protection pockets'in your e}o*bo* v AiiiJefi'on) this claim-, others DBtMuatlc. for locked pockets. Thewunufactuwe- say. that they will prevent pockeitpick- ing, and tliat their universal us« will lorcc every criminal who practices the art to turn his attention to some o'tfiT •iue of business. .". While a year ago it was costing th» city at the rate of $100,000 a year to re- tMrae the garbage, the new contractor does the work for $280 per mon.th, and <K awmB possible that in the near future HM city may be selling its garbage to the highest bidder instead of paying for ite Ttiin^nial, this woman contractor baring already inaugurated this innovation.
