straightened bangs and under dripping bats Probably the donkeys were no noise than other donkeys but the road they had to travel was but n path and it seemed to me that any self-respecting donkey would uot have taken advantage of so many the road for tUe pose of stumbling as these ing animals did The saddles were not fastened securely nnd the guides one of whom accompanied each ed dreadful threats to the donkeys were expected to hold the saddles on When the donkey fell down the saddle slipped forward and cuffed the animal on the head When he went tip hill it settled j Mrs w 1 Alfred

dressed only in his night clothes his throat ut from ear to ear and a razor m bis tand It was supposed that he had bet i dead several days It was at first the ught to be a case of murder bat w is no signs of a struggle and the i as in perfect order There is hardly doubt but that Mr MasK hit own life in a moment of Since tl death of his wife which jed foui years ago he has been in poor and at

Eddy rep Minn Walsh dem N Sherman rep N V nnd Gamble U The democrats voted almost against Mr Linton's amendment the republicans were divided The an- of the result was met with i storm of approval from the galleries which seemed in sympathy the ma jority on the floor WASHINGTON C Feb the House in committee of the whole ter a eery interesting debate by a vote of 93 to 64 decided that none of the on for Indian schools should go to tarian schools The only sectarian schools to which money now goes are Roman Catholic in denomination and the fight to-day led by Me Linton a Michigan republican who it the most pronounced and openly member of tbt American Protective Association on the floor In last year's bi I the propriation was cut 20 per cent with the understanding that it should 1 reduced 20 per cent each year until it ceased at the end of The comi littre on Indian pursuing that this year recommended that this a again reduced 20 per bat Mr Linton moved an amendment to the effect that no portion of this a should go to sectarian sclu ols When the portion of the relating to Indian schools was reached M Linton rep made a speech against the appropriation of mcney for schools He recalled the fact thai br had two years ago denounced the ot appropriating money for these tions He had warned members and his warning had not ve The result was the absenc of men whose faces had been familiar in the halls of congress for years said he the storm o ballots the flood of indignation which over- whelmed them will be but as zephyr and a rivulet compared with what will if congress persists in thit policy Every member of the Mr ton said knew that tbe ried for sectarian dollar of which would jo i j were educated in these schools T not be argued he said these children would suffer The Roman Catholic church would take care of its own It was powerful enough It hnd a hut not with public money It may be j that I am thought an extremist on this said he but I know I i m right aud I know the people are with me Both political parties IK d were pledged to the of church and state He said the nature of the pressure upon members ic knew the lobby was at work but tha would not deter him from doing He referred to the fact that the ot consin had presented to congres a ute ot Pere which was soon to be set up statuary halt H would be the first churchman represented there It may he continued that Father Stephen that a time the statute of Pere Marquette robe 1 in the gown of a Jesuit priest and with the paraphernalia of his church is to be erected in this nation's sanctuary made holy by the presence of the ed Lincoln is a good time to quarter of a million dollars the hands oi congress But I warn h m that he is mistaken and I warn rs that the people will not tolerate such an un- constitutional appropriation ot public funds Mr Cooper rep Wis his unalterable opposition to the pr in the appropriating 60 per -ent of the appropriation of 1895 for the ian schools He had voted against it last year and would do so this md for the tame reason Public money lor tarian schools was un- democratic and un-American not speak as a member of the American Protective Association he was not a member but as an American If tbe support of the government was drawn the Catholic won d port her schools as other church s did There were Catholic c If each paid 6 cents i year would IK realized Mr Cooper concluded by quoting tbe clause of the constitution to re- freedom written by Thomas ferson which be said Jefferson wa i more proud of anything he ever wrote except the declaration of independence Mr Cooper's remarks were by the galleries and a on the floor JMt amendment ed by Mr rep Cal He Believed that Loyalty to tha Should be First The controversy which sprang up tbe late General Sherman's religious con- on account of the of his children while the General was in a com- state in bringing in a priest of tbe Roman Catholic church to apply ante- mortem has been the topic oi considerable comment and conversation among the hero's personal friends says the Philadelphia Enquirer The General never made any secret of his notions on religion The strong Roman practice of members of his family caused him to be very decided in his expressions of ty to the Roman church but beyond that he bad no fixed views in matters of convictions or denominational de- tail In conversation with a ent of the at a white heat of indignation and dis- appointment over his son's going into the society of Jesuits the General Oh yes I am I am more than that I am very mad all over Mrs Sherman and I agreed to disagree on the girls being under their mother's influence but I the boys Their mother was very devoted to the church and I never interfered with her in that matter but I believe that loyalty belongs to the government first I do not want to say that a man cannot be a good American citizen and a loyal subject to the pope but if be an affecting the of American in- in conflict with tbe supremacy of the Roman Catholic church they will put the pope above tke president We may not see it yet some living to-day may 1 believe that onr constitution with the institutions which have grown out of it is the grandest heritage given to tbe human Is above it owes no to any power the A3 ILLICIT Detected tbe Government Qre Feb excisemen have seized an illicit still at the Trappist monastery of Oka For some eighteen months past the of the Inland Revenue department were aware of the fact that quite a lot of whiskey was coming into town from the little settlement of Oka It was known druggist in this city was receiving from there more whisky than could naturally be sold for medical poses and that Oka was not a way tion from any big distillery months the source of the whisky comine from that locality was only guessed at but the week before last it waa thought should be taken to settle the mystery Consequently Mr Brabant inland revenue officer by an assistant went to the astery and made a search They found a whisky still of gallons per dny at work in the tery Tbe superiors admitted the ter looked serious but claimed that the whisky was distilled without their edge Seizing the machinery the revenue officer returned to Montreal Later an two monks from Oka called at the inland revenue office here and offered to pay the fine for tbe illicit distillation of whisky They were referred to the government at Ottawa The monastery in question is a large concern It is on a farm acres in extent in which are a cheese y a dairy and The astery also runs a hotel which does a good The monks make considerable wine last season they bought eight of grapes which they converted into wine and during tbe same period sold about gallons of wine The Matter is naw before
