A serious conflict occurred at 7:30
o'clock Sunday evening In Dslks
street, Warsaw, where a Jewish so.
clalist society, known as the Bund.
had organsed a demonstration. The
troops which eai, to disperse the
gathering fired JMo the crowd, killing
four persons and wounding forty
Other disturbances are reported to
have occurred. The streets had been
patrolled throughout the day, the au-
thorities having anticipated trouble.
Conditions nl the city are causing
much uneasiness and nervousness.
Hand-printed proclamations have been
found In the streets, warning the pub-
1e against walking near government
buildings a1d other places as bombs
would be thrown in those quarters.
Several parents, whose children are
attending school in defiance of the
school strike, have been earnedd by
letter to withdraw their children as
the school buildings would be blown
up. -
Representatives of the party of vio-
lence (It is not quite clear whether
they are revolutionaries or socialists)
are visiting private persons and levy-
tag contributions for "'ammunition."
When Governor General Maximo-
vttch arrived In Warsaw ten days ago
ot assume his ofclal duties he ordered
that the Cossack detachment await-
ing him at the station be retired, say-
ing he did not want an escort. Driv-
,-Apg through the cty Sunday, 'however,
the governor general's carriage was
surrounded by twenty Cossacks.
The trouble th Dzika street began,
when, under the pretext of holding a
memorial meeting for a late Jewish
socialist leader. a crowd of over 1.000,
mostly Jews, carrying red flags,
marched into zDsika street, and was
met by a mixed police and military
patrol of twenty men. The police de-
clare the socialists fired revolvers at
them, the leaders inciting the mob to
attack the patrol, which thereupon
fired several volleys Into the crowd.
Four men were killed and forty were
wounded. The crowd removed all but
nine of the wounded, two of whom
were women. These were taken te
the hospitals, and it is expected that
two or more of them will die. The
dead and wounded were all Jews. The
police made many arrests.

Monday morning on a long trip to the
weet sad asothwest sand wil be ab~at
from the capital for nearly two
month. The achef object of the trip
which the president long as ad la
mind, is the reunion of the Rough
Riders regiment of the Sanaish war,
which is to take place at Dan Antonio,
Texas. and for which an elaborate
program of exercise has been ar-
ranged. There will be several brief
stops,- where the president will make
addresses on the way to San Antonio.
After leaving San Antealo there will
be a brief stop and address at Fort
Worth, which will end the public part
of the trip, after which the president
is to go hunting In the Pan Handle
of Texas and later In Colorado.
No plans have yet been arranged
for the return trip.
All arrangements have been made
whereby the president will keep In
touoh with public affairs both during
his railroad ride and while hunting,
so that he will be enabled to pass on
all matters requiring his attention.
He is looking forward with keen pleas.
ure to his long vacation.
The president left over the Pennsyl-
vania railroad. He was accompanied
by Secretary Loeb, Dr. Alexander
Lambert, General S. B. M. Young,
Lieutenant Fortescue, M. C. Latta
and J. L. McGrew, stenographers and
representatives of newspaper and
press associations.
The Arst stop was made at Louis.

ing. The president and party passed
in processilon through the city ahd

Celeles of Sl6 Weevil Esters KeecKked Out
by Winter's Cold Usets.,
A Washington special says: The
tests so tar made with a view to es-
tablishing the kelep, or Guatemalan
boll weevil-eating ant, in Texas, have
been complete failures. Not one of
the colonies which were "planted" last
year in the cotton fields of the state
loamed has survived the winter. ome
of the scientists of the department of
agriculture believe that this fct is
idue to certain unfavorable conditiona,
which may be remedied, rather than
to any natural inability of the In-
sert to hibernate In this country.
They assert, further, that the ant Is
Inot really an ant at all, and meat
not be treated as anuc. The fact that
tt has been so treated, they claim, Is
-partly responsible for the faflmre of
the experiments made up to date.They
still have a great deal of faith hin the
kelep as an effective enemy of the
'boll weevil, and, during the coming
season, they will proceed to work out
their new theories ai the hope that

some few bankers, so It to understood,
by which they are urging their cus.
towers to plant more cotton than ever
before, because of the fact that the
acreage is going to be reduced all over
the south. They tell the farmer that
now is his chance to make a big thind.
for, as everybody else ie going to
cut down his crop, why, he can go
ahead, plant a big one and reap the
profits of the high prices.
Now. of course, It the farmers took
this advice, there would be no reduc-
tion of pereago this year. But, for-
tunately, there are only a few farmers
who have such little patriotism or
such little regard for his neighbor
who will take advantage of them in
such a mean way.
People who are giving such advice
are being branded as traitors all over

"Hullo. Georgie, what's up? You
look pretty sick. Another?" Walter
Crane chuckled lightly as he regarded
the gloomy-looking young man he had
just met.
Georgie Carter looked at him dis-
gustedly for half a minute.
His reply was short, It not prover-
bially sweet. "Get out," he said, as,
slowly as before, he resumed his walk
down the Bckinagham Palace rsod.
Mr. Crane looked after him quiszi-
cally. *
"Bet It's a girl," he said softly, and
then he too went his way.
It was a girl, or, as Georgle would
have told him, it was the only girl.
And they had Just been parted for a
whole year by over-anxious, interfer-
ing parents. A whole year, with noth-
ing in the world to look forward to
but one letter a month.
"Twelv--only twelve In the whole
year," Oeorgle had groaned, even
after Mabel had faithfully promised to
begin her letter on the first day of the
month, write It like a diary and dis-
patch by the very last poet on the
very last day, so that he should really
have a moderately fair idea of what
she was doing. Even this had not
consoled him, and, sick at heart he
left her and took his way to Victoria
station, there to catch his train home.
But as he entered the yard a cheery
,...voice greeted him.
"Georgie," It cried, "are you cutting
b."d Mrs. Frank, I never saw you,"
he skid listlessly.
The young-faced, snow-white-halred,
well-preserved looking woman glanced
sharply at him.
"What's the matter, Georgle?" she
asked, a kindly note in her voice.
He looked still listlessly away from
her over the station yard.
"Nothing," he said, and then sud-
denl~r, with such a rush of feeling in
his byes that she wondered with half
a shock If it were tears.
"Oh. Mrs. Frank, I've just said good-
by to Matel, and-and-and I am go-
ing home," he ended bitterly.
My dear boy: I am so sorry. 'I
didn't know. What is it? There-don't
go home-tell me all about it-come
and dine with me instead." 0 *
S "And she was so kind."
wrote G(orgle in his dairy-like letter
that night. "I told her all about you.

Frank's was perhaps the nicest In the

had a large veranda, beautifully fitted
up, where coffee and liqueurs were
served every night after dinner.
It was just six months since that
bitter parting between Mabel akd
Georgie. Time was beginning to have

a soothing effect on Mabel, though her
letters were still faithfully dairy-like.
Georgiae. it would seem, felt the part-
ing as deeply as ever. He till needed
- consolation, and he received it, with
N coffee and liqueurs, from a friend of
his family at least three Umes a week.
Fhe had been very kind, very good,
very patient. She had listened to
Georgle's ravings, and agreed, with
him on every point anent the perfec-
tions of his fair one, and she was
gaining her reward. This nice young
fellow whom she had truly tried to
help, began to show that she had real.

Natural Soap.

It is said that in a mountain near
Elko, Nevada, there is an Inexhausti-
ble supply of pure soap. One may en.
ter the mine with a butcher's knife
and cut as large a piece'as he wants.
It is beautifully mottled, and on being
exposed to the air hardens somewhat.
The mountain of clay Is of fine texture
and it contains boracic acid, soda, and
borate of lime. Its color is given it by
the iron and other minerals. In its
natural state It is rather strong In
alkali, and removes ink and other
stains readily. At one time it was
used on Pullman cars but when Its
peculiar origin became generally
known passengers appropriated it so
extensively for souvenirs that the com-
pany was forced to go ,ack to the com-
mon soap of commerce.-Waverley

A Valuable Indatry Setabllohd to
Only PFften Years.

Fifteen years ago, at the little town
of North Loup, la Central Nebraska,
a farmer planted forty acres of pop-
corn. His neighbors thought be had
taken leave of his senses. Today 80
per cent of the popcorn -produced I
commercial quantities in the United
States la grown in this vicinity. lAst
year, the four hundred cars, contain.
ing nearly five million pounded, were
shipped from this village of 1,000 in-
habitants. Practically the whole of
this goes to wholesale dealers in Chi-
cago, and is distributed from there.
North Loup corn possesses the high-
ly desirable qualky of being ready to
pop as soon as gathered. That pro.
duced in other dietrlts most either

fore It will pop freely. The bright,
dry falls of central Nebraska, togeth-
4er with the fact that the occasional
fall raise ; e followed at once by
warm sunglne, which thoroughly
dries both the stalk and the corn, ren-
der the North uoup product available
About twen't.y-five hundred acres
are annually planted to popcorn tn

these superfluous stalks with his cul.

ears, some four. Where only one ear
grows on a stalk It In likely to be
coarao and of poor quality. Medium
sized ears produce the best corn.
The cultivation of growing popcorn
Is similar to that employed with fold
corn. The mature corn, however, is
more difficult to gather because of the
shortness of the *talks and the small-
ness of the ears. This Increases the
cost of picking. While farmers pay
only three or four cents a bushel for
gathering field corn, the prevailing
price for picking popcorn is twelve
to fifteen cents a bushel. Previous
to picking time the cost of production

is said that every man who has rais-

ten years has done well. A number
of instances are mentioned where the
corn has paid the coat price of the
land In a single crop.-Frank U. 8te-
