That Mrs. Mabel A. Beauchain, of
Allston, a suburb of Boston, Mass.,
came to her death at the Aragon
H.tel yesterday by a rasor out
across the throat, self-inflicted, was
the verdict of the coroner's jury,
which made a thorough Investiga-
tion of the case to-day. Mrs. Beau-
bchain was found in her room early
yesterday morning with her throat
eat from ehr to ear, a rasor lying
near her right hand, the blood spurt-
Ing about over the bed clothing and
even to the floor beyond. Dr. E. E.
Banker, of Ft. Edward, N. Y., her
private physician, found her gasp-
ing for breath and called hotel at-
taches.
The coroner's jury viewed the
scene of the tragedy this morning
arid heard the testimony of Dr.
Banker, hotel attaches, Mr. New-

from a sitting position.
Following Instructions from her
attorney, Joseph H. Vahey, the body
of Mrs. Beduchain will be shipped to
Boston to-night. A telegram receiv-
from Mr. Vahey last night addressed
to Dr. Banker, said:
"Dreadfully sorry. Ship body to
Boston at my expense. Be sure to
come yourself."
Dr. Banker will accompany the
body. Mrs. Beauchain's personal ef-
fects have been left in the keeping
of the hotel, where they will be held
until advices are received from Bos-
ton.
Evidence showed that Mrs. Beau-
and Dr. Banker had formed a warm
personal friendship, which the doe-
tor admitted might have ripened in-
to love. Dr. Banker sla a married

Death of Rev. WE. Stanton.
Miami, Oct. 97.-Rev, W. Z. Stan-
ton, pastor of the First Baptist
church of this city. died yesterday
at 11:80 o'clock. Dr. Stanton has
been in feeble health for some time,
and for the last two Sundays was
unable to fill his pulpit. The Im-
mediate cause of his death was an
accute attack of pneumonia. Rev.
W. E. Stanton came to San Mateo
from Lowell, Mass., about 1871 and
resided there until going to Lemon
City in 1896 and purchased a tract of
land, built a home and planted an
orange grove and pineapple plant-
ation. In 1897 he came to Miami,
preaching In a tent. and through his
kindly manners and deep interest in
the cause he soon gathered a num-
ber of faithful followers. About two
years after largely through his con-
secrated work a society was formed,
and steps taken towards the erec-
tion of a flne church building. Both
Dr. Stanton and his devoted wife
labored unceasly for this, and after
a time they saw the fruits of their
labor, a fine church building, dedi-
cated to the worship of God. also a
commodious parsonage. His church
membership has grown from a few
nntil now it has something over 800
actual members. Dr. Stanton would
have been 71 year years old if he had
lived until December. He is sur-
vived by a widow, one son, Rev.
Arthur Stanton, a Missionary in In-
dia; a daughter, Mrs. Tbeo Houser,
who resides in this city, and one
brother, Avery Stanton. The fu-
neral services will be held Thursday
afternoon In the Baptist church, and
the remains will be Kent to Norwich,
Conn., for interment. The remains
will be acconmaniied by Theo T.
Housor. Dr. Stanton came to the
end "like a shock of corn fully ripe
for the harvest," and has gone hence
to reap the reward of hbis faithful
stewardship.-TImne- Unlon.

Farm Boys in England


I*4****' N a book on "England and the English," by Fred M. Hueffer,
he speaks of conditions in the rural districts as follows:
Ir <"With the spread of education, with the increase of
IJ communication, there-has come not the determination to
better the conditions of life in the country, but the simple
abandonment of the land. It is, I think, a truism to any one
who knows the country * that there are whole
stretches of territory in 8ngland where a really full-witted
or stert youth of between sixteen and thirty will absolutely
not be found. I visited lately eighteen farms of my own neighborhood, cov-
ertag a space of about four miles by two miles, and on this amount of ground
only fve boys found employment. Four of these were below the average In*
telUgeee., and had at school not passed the fourth standard; tLe Afth was so
(ftupi' that be could not be trusted to do more than drive the milk cart to
and from the station. And ai all the farm laborers' families that I know well
--some forty'elz in number-only two have youths at home, and one of these
has SIoething the matter with ma legs.' Of one hundred and twelve other
famnlie that I know in a nodding way, not more than five have boys at work
la the fields. Making a rough calculation of the figures as they have present-
ed themselves to me, I find that Just over 5 percent of the countfy-born boys
I have kowna have stayed of their own free choice on-the land."
Mr. H.' also says that all the old amusements of the coustryside--the,
dres, the May-day celebrations, the cricket clubs and the like-are dying out,
wLh so efort on the part of the rustics to retain them. Into the cities troop

Millers business; he has never In-
vested nor speculated In stocks, nor
ytelded to the almost universal West.
ern fever for mining, nor engaged
in any mercantile business, except to
run a few country stores near his
ranches for the convenience of his
eia. Some of his lands are In the
richest part of the already developed
OUl dSlda of Coalings,. Cal., but he
refuses to spend a cent to dig wells
for oil.
"Maybe it is there," he says; "but
r know the cattle business, and I
shall stick to it." He has made $20,-
W0,000 In It, to perhaps he is right.
Mr. Miller's success in cattle rais-
ing is his own secret. Ho buys cat-
tie and sheep and hogs, lean or fat,
runs them on his own ranges, ship-
pang them from ranch to ranch to
utilise all the grass and stubble, puts
his own grain Into them, and when
they go to market they always make
a profit. He buys In tremendous quan-
tities. He once ordered his head sheep
foreman to buy all the sheep for sale
In Nevada at any reasonable price.
'The foreman bought all but fifteen
thb eamd head, held at $5 apiece,
w|ch he thought too high. RHe re-
ported to Mr. (Miller in Southern
California. Without a pause Mr.
Miller said: "Take the next train
to Nevada and buy them."
That was a $75,000 purchase.
He does not bargain. He will look
at a *ard of cattle or a likely band
of shesp, ask the number, and offer
a lump sum for the lot without furth-
er examination, even if there are
thousands of head. And he will not
alter the offer. The seller can take
his check or let Mr. Miller go.
His ranches are models of neatness
I sad order and thrifty management.
XW 7ry one of them is better managed
than the neighboring ranches. Every

Baltimore, September 8.
Another reliable commission house
has been opened in this city by J. H.
Gavan & Co., at 306 Light street, op-
posite the wharves of the bay produce
steamers. The success of the Arm Is
predicted by the oldest commission
maen In the city on account of the
pXegressiveness of the young man at
the head of the firm. He is J. H.
Gavan, son of W. 8. Gavan, who at
cue time was president of the Nation-
al League of Commission Merchantd
and for forty years connected with the
well known firm here of C. P. Tatem
& Co. Young Mr. Gavan was prac-
tically raised In the store with his
father, and always took an active In-
terest in the business. Since he has
been grown he has traveled exten-
sively throughout the country repre-
senting the firm his father is con-
nected with, and as a result Is well
posted in all lines of the commission
business. Although only a few weeks
in existence, the firm has Oandled
considerable business and has some
of the best references in the city,
that of the National Bank of Com-
merce and the Baltimore Branch Na-
tional League of Commission Mer-
chants. Mr. Gavan is well -able to.
take care of large and small accounts,
and it would be advisable to get in
ccmmunkasUon with him.-Pritnmaa's

Gainesvllle, Fla.-The first tangible
move in the matter of good roads for
this section of Florida was made
when the Galnesville Automobile as-

the best road,
The Tampa Automobile club will
make an endurance run to Jackson-
ville on November 4, and the route
via Ocals and Gainesville has been
adopted. It is confidently expected
that, within a few months, a good
highway will be completed from
Jacksonville to Tampa, and ultimate-
ly to connect with the national high-
way to New York. Great enthusaam

It was w ile the kids were disport.

lag them both, when the boys were
astons l d to hear a loud voice from
among the bushes on one side of the
creet zeolaim:
'That's only the 'fifty-ninth strike
Throw another."
Skinny and Clarence ceased their
splashing and the boys listened
breathlessly. In a moment there step-
ped from behind theo bushes a man
dressed In a dirty-white base ball
suit, with a bat over his shoulder.
Seeing the boys, he called cheerfully:
"HI, there Quit that foolishness
and let's play ball."
-Nobody answered. "Who is the
guy?" asked Clarence, in an under-
tone.
"Acts like a dippy feller who,
broke out of the asylum yesterday,"
answered Skinny.
'Seems to be good-natured," Dum-
py suggested.
The stranger on the bank regard-
od them patiently while they talked,
and now sung out walin: "Well, are
you ready for the game?"
"Where's your team?" asked Clar,

"Here.0
"I don't see any one but yourself."
"Tl have my team when you get
yours together."
'"Come on, fellows, let's play him,"
urged Dumpy, wading out and bergu-

ger, stepped aside sad easly tagged
the runner out. Instead of stopping,
the fellow increased his paoe till be
reached the home plate, sliding tn
until a oloud of dust was raised.
Then, calmly picking up the bat, he
faced Skinny.
"BMt you are out," remonstrated
Skinny.
"Our team is allowed three outs,
isn't It?"
Skinny laughed and asented. He
sent a straight, swift ball, which the
stranger fouled. Dumpy, the catcher,
ran under It and easily caught it.
"Two outs on us," muttered the
stranger, and again faced the pitcher.
Skinny first sent an inshoot, which
puzzled the batter, causing him to
fan the air. A slow drop wsa equal-
ly deceptive, and an outdrop was the
third strike and the third out.
"Now my team is 'in bats,' yelled
Skinny, and the boys advanced to the
plate.
"Oh, not yet. I've got another
strike coming," replied the lone bat-
ter.
"But there were three strikes on
you," insisted Pete Clemmons.
"I get ninety-seven more strikes,"
declared the stranger, stoutly.
(1he boys laughed derisively. The
batter waved his stick and grew red
in the face.
"Ah, I know-you-you are trying
to cheat me, Ill see about thot."
He grubbed Dumpy with one arm
and Skinny with the other, threw
them to thb ground, picked up the
club and waved it threateningly over
them. Before he could strike the oth-
er boys -ruased to the assistance of
their chums and a free-for-all fight
ensued. They had no doubt now that
he was cray. The lunatic possessed
unusual strength, and soon he wa#
sitting on four of the boys and strik-
ing at the others with his bat.
I'Here comes an auto," cried Clar-
ence Scholes. 'Maybe they will help
us. Help Help!" he screamed.
The stranger got hold of Dumpy's
throat and was choking him. Then
a heavy hand was laid on his shoul-
der and he turned around to see a
man in white uniform.
. "Here, Hans, what are you doing?"
said the newcomer.
"Oh, it's you, Is It? I have been
having a game with these fellows
and they tried to cheat me."
"Cheated you, did they T'
"Wes. They only let me have three
strikes to an out."
"Well, now, that's real mean. By
the way, Hans, I've signed for a game
fcr you with the Chicago Cubs. Wll
) cu go and play them a game?"
"Sure. Come on, let's hurry. Will
they let us have a hundred strikes?"
"Certainly. Get In and we'll go im-
mediately."
While they were cranking the ma-
chino for the return trip the keeper
said to Skinny: "He thinks he's Hans
Wagner. the great base ball player.
I'm awfully sled you caught him for
me. Here's a dollar. Buy the crowd
something to eat. o long." And he
jumped into the auto, which whined
away.
"Gee, I'm glad they came when
they did." said Dumpy, rubbing his
neok. "I'd have been a dead one in
two minutes. I'll never forget that
game as lenad as I live." And the
rest of the boys were of the same

IN THE COUNTRY.
You may like to read of my first
stay In the country. We have a boys'
guild in our church, and we all went
camping recently.
The first night I could not sleep.
The noises were so strange to me,
the ~inging of the whippoorwills and
humming insects. The cows had bells
on their necks, and the man in charge
of us said the cows were ringing up
their. fares.
We used to take long walks, and
sometimes we would get a ride home
to the camp on a coal wagon or on
the back of a carriage. The farmers
were very nice; they often let us ride
with them. It was fine to run around,
climb trees with no one to chase you.
I gained eight pounds. How nice it
must be to live in the country all the
time! I felt sorry to have to come
back to the city.


The Expense of Being Careless.
A prominent business man, accord
Ing to Orison Sweet Marden, in
Success Magazine, says that the care.
lessness, inaccuracy, and blundering
of employees cost Chicago one mill*
ion dollars a day. The manager of
a large Chicago house says that he
has to station pickets here and there
through the establishment In order to
neutralize the evils of Inaccuracies
and the blundering habit. Blunders
and Inaccuracies cost a New York
concern twenty-five thousand dollars
a year.

ten hours he is slipping into it, In
shirking, in his indifference to his
employer's interests. It is Just as
dishonest to express It with the Ups,
yet I have known office boys, who
could not be induced to tell their
employer a direct lie, to steal his
time when on an errand, to hide
"away during working hours to smoke
a cigarette or take a nap, not real-
ising, perhaps, that lies can be acted
as well as told, and that acting a lie
may be even worse than telling one.

Silver In Bolivia.
Bolivia is famous for its silver, but
also possesses considerable quanti-
ties of gold, which, however, can
not be extracted without great ex.
pense. In the seventeenth century
an Indbia near the town of La Pas
found a mass of native gold. sup.
posed to have been detached from
the neighboring mountain by light-
ning. Bolivia is, on the whole, la a
backward condition, political changes
and Internal opfllets having hinder.
ed the development of Its natural
wealth.

rna With Repulie.
Anstr's now territory isto undesir
ably rich in makes, mostly of the
poisonous varieties, and the Govers-
moant is taking vigorous measures to
exterminate them.
In the ten years from 1896 to 1905
the average' yearly death roll from
snake bites In Bosula and Hersego-
vins was thirteen persons, and 1.338
head of cattle, horses and domestic
animals. Besides this, hundreds of
persons were bitten by snakes, but
recovered.
Since 1906 the provincial authori-
ties have given money premiums for
the killing of snakes. In that year
80,056 dead snakes were brought In,
of which 25,438 wore poisonoUs. Next
year, when the official reward system
became more generally known, these
figures increased enormously, no
fewer than 280,718 -snakes being
killed, including 271,685 poisonous.
Last year's figures were very near-
ly the same, and it will be some
years before the work of extermina-
tion dan be anything like completed.
But at the same time the number of
persons reported bitten by poisonous
snakes seems to be steadily deceras-
ing-206 in 1907 and 140 last year.-
Sarajevo correspondent in Pall Mall
Gazette.

HIS NOT TO REASON WHY.

His But to Do as He Was Told
Though Profits Dwindled.
A story is told of the Rothschilds
.to Illustrate tho strict obedience
which they at all times exacted from
their Vmployees, high and low.
They once had an agent in New
Orleans, a young and alert fellow
who kept his oyes and ears open.
According to System, they telegraph-
ed him to sell their cotton holdings
on a specified day.
Believing that he had better in-
formation on the local market than
his employers he held th, sale over
four days and netted an extra profit
of $40,000. lie promptly notified the
Rothschilds of his achievement and
forwarded the bonus. The Rothschilds
returned the amount Intact with a
cold note that ran:
"The $40,000 you made by disobey-
ing our instructions is not ours but
yours. Take it. Your successor sails
for New Orleans today."

More Manicures.
The proprietor of a large downtown
barber shop has found it necessary
to double his force of manicures, and
says that at the present rate of busi-
ness increase he will soon be. comr
polled to put another booth in his
place. He said that this did not show
any increased desire on the part of
his customers to keep their nails in
good form, but rather the develop.
meant of the man ture habit. "I would
go right back to ne nail doctor in
a week," he said, "and that would
eventually become a poor business,
if I sent the girls away and took
men In their stead. Our girls make
from $15 to $20 a week. A man just
as capable could not earn on.halt
that amount. That's the manicure
business."-New York Tribune.

Steel Lifting Magnets.
Lifting magnets have demonstrated
their value in certain special lines
of work and are now in dally use
in many places. An aggregate weight
of Afteen tons of rails is handled by
magnets at the works of the United


States steel plant at Gary, Ind. This
comprises the "look section" of a pile
of rails which consists of a layer of
track with alternate rails inverted
so that the mass will hold together.

'Twixt Love and Duty.
George Vincent of Chatauqua fame
has this explanation of the delay in
passing the tariff bill.
"Congress," he said, "was trying to
make up its mind whether to do its
duty by the country or to do the
country by its duty."-Success MaIs

RAG RU0G9.
I believe that a great many times
our city sisters appreciate these com-
mon things more than do the women
of the farm. I had this impressed
more firmly upon my mind lately on
seeing some of the despised rag rugs
In the home of a fashionable city
friend of mine. I am told they are
coming Into universal favor, for use
-al9ng with old Colonial furniture and
other things of that period.
These rugs are far more artistic
than the glary velvet ones of the
stores; they are also much cheaper
and more serviceable.
Lot me tell you how some of these
beautiful rugs are made. Take the

toe weaver put the warp in the loom
three threads in a place, then skip
two. This willU give the effect when
woven of tiny diamonds, and of
course is much stronger than when
thq warp is put In single.
The weaver here charges thirty
cents a yard for weaving such rugs
a yard wide and furnishes her own
warp. One of these rugs that has
been in constant wear for seven years
Is as ood yet as when new. Being
heavy these rugs lie In place very
rmly.

Birds often display a hish degree
of Intelligence, and certain character-
latles belong to different species a
clearly defined as among types of
men. A robin or a wren is oonidlang
and trusting; a crow wary and sus-
piclous; a hawk passionate and eager,
and so on. But on oooasions they
develop Individual and almost human
facility, writes F. M. Butler, in the
Churchman.
Several kinds of birds which build
their nests in holes In trees or walls
plaster up the entrance to the nest
with mud, if it chances to be too
large.
It la said that the Maryland yellow
throat will cast out the egg of the
cowblackbird laid In her nest if she
has not laid eggs of her own; but
If she has begun to lay she does not
seem to notice the intrusion.
Last summer, in the height of the
nesting season, one evening about
sunset, a cat began an ascent into
a large tree where there were sev-
eral birds' nests full of callow nest-
llags.
A large trumpet vine of many
years' growth gave easy access to
the branches, and the cat was nearly
up to the nests when the birds dis-
covered her.


Immediately they began to fly
about her with loud cries of dis-
tress-not only those with nests In
that tree, but every bird on the
lawn, came quickly to the rescue. A
pair of raincrows, shyest of birds,
and a pair of sparrow-hawks, which
nested in a hole in the cornice high
In the gable end of the house--us-
ually the dread of the small birds-
came among the catbirds, robins,
wood-peckers, fly-catchers, blue-birds
and sparrows, a cloud of vociferous
defenders, flying, darting and pecking
at the common enemy. The cat re-
moved, the tumult was soon over, but
It was a curious league of defence.
In nest-building time, when sev-
eral pairs of birds of the same kind
are building in the same tree, one
wonders if they will not interfere or
even steal material from each other;
but no, they fly back and forth; not
a twig or a feather is molested. Bird
manners or morals forbid.
When a robin takes short runs on
the lawn or the garden path, his
head held high, apparently taking an
unconcerned walk, he really pauses
to listen for the underground move-
ments of the worms he wants for his
supper. His feet stop beside the
worm cast-some say he stamps- up
wriggles the worm to see what It
means. Robin's bill hu hold and
gives short shrift.
Blackbirds and thrushes carry
snails to stones and break the shells.
A Scotch naturalist describes seas
gulls as carrying shellfish up to great
heights and letting them fall for the
same reason. He even says that on
one occasion a gull, when the fall
had not broken the shell, flew with
It to a greater height and let it fall
a second time.
English sparrows are credited with
many devices, even such as placing
hard bread crusts on street car
tracks that they may be broken up,
or dropping them in the gutter to
moisten them, but these instances are
not vouched for.
Among animals certain forms of
etiquette prevail. When a dog meets
another perfectly strange to him, he
preteads the stranger is a big, strong,
important creature against whom he
must take precautions. He stops
short, holds up one foot, trots on a
little w, then He down, head on

The early phases of the cock-flght
are so exactly known as to seem to
be by rule-the advances, retreat
and final grapple being the same In
all Cases.
The coon has a curious habit of
washing its food, and. Indeed, every-
thing he touches-moat, vegetables.
bits of cloth, shells or stones, which
he loves to collect-all must be
washed as soon as It comes Into pos-
session, but whether this hs due to
some instinct of cleanliness or is
mere etiquette can not well be deter-
mined.
Animals and birds free themselves
from parasites in various Ingenious
fashions-bathing, dust, mud, etc.
A story is told of a certain kind
of foxes much Infested with fleas.
Ono collects wool from brambles and
hedges, and holding a bunch of It
In the mouth, plunges Into a river.
Ioe swims with only his nose above
water. Naturally the fleas find ref-
use in the wool. When he emerges
floas and wool are left *behind.
When a dog fees badly hbe seeks
and eats a certain kind of grass. Cats
also eat grass as medicine. Sheep
and cows eat certain herbs when
ill.
Some varoities of ants are said to
have doctors and nurses, a sort of
ambulance corps. Latrielle, a French
naturalist, relates that he cut the
antennae of a "warrior ant" and oth-
ors came and covered the wound with
a transparent fluid secreted in their
mouths.
If a chimpanzee 1a wounded It
dresses the wound with leaves. When'
a wild animal has a broken or bad-
ly mangled leg it often completes am-
putation with its teeth.
When a dog is wounded it seeks
a secluded place, abstains from food
and continually licks the wound with
its tongue. When the hurts are not
accessible to this treatment, they
have been known to lick the paw and
apply that until the place begins to
heal. An animal suffering from rheu-
matism will always seek a sunny
spot; indeed, they will prefer sun-
shine to shade whether well or ill,
at all seasons.
It is related of Charles James Fox
that walking up St. James street,
London, with the Prince of Wales,
afterward George IV., he laid a wag-
or (those were the betting days), that
the Prince might take either side of
the street he liked, but that Fox
would sue more cats than he in his
walk. I was found on reaching the
goal that Fox had seen thirteen cat,
the Prince had seen none.
"I knew your Royal Ilighnesa would
choose the, shady side as most agree
able," said Fox. "so the sunny side
would be loft for me, and cats al-
ways lie In the sunshine."
Boos and ants are the most Inter-
esting of the small creatures and
seem to be more under the rule of
fixed laws than others.
A recent writer on bees has re-
ported that when strange 'bees are
placed In a hive they are Instantly
killed by the guards, but If a strange
queen is introduced, a consultation
ensues and the Intruder is put to
death-not by stinging it, but by suf-
focation-a death seemingly reserved
