Fort Wayne Sentinel, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1899, Fort Wayne, Indiana OCT. a THE MARKETS, Chicago, Oct. All markets on 'change today developed considerable strength in marked contrast to the course pursued during last week. In- dependent strength at Liverpool and dry weather throughout the south- west caused a change of sentiment in and that market started strong. Buying was quite general, while the selling pressure, so pro- nounced of late, was conspicuously absent. The price got above call fig- ures early in the session and selling against those privileges and some profit taking resulted in a slight re- action for a time, but offerings were readily absorbed and the market for the most part ruled strong with th? price tending upwards. The strength in com and a decrease on ocean passage, where a large in- crease had been expected, also stipu- lated the buying movet.er.t.

Min- neapolis and Duluth got cars, compared with for the same day last year. World's shipments last week were bushels, and amount on passage decreased bushels. Indications Were that the visible supply would increase nearly 000 bushels. Cora ruled strong and active. The advance was due to good buying, owing to numerous claims of disappointing husking results aud a steady decrease in stocks. Receipts were 553 cars.

Each upholstered piece of furniture should be carefully brushed and plain wlished surfaces wiped with a slightly damp cloth, then rubbed with a dry one and either moved out of the room or covered with a dnst sheet. A paint brush does excellently to re- move the dnst that will lodge in carved Mrts, or if in the crevices a very tiny >r Btifter brash or a wooden skewer can M used. If there are moldings at the of the wall, use a long handled irnsh if it iaperfectly clean. If it isn't. ;ie a duster over it Do ceilings and walls in the came way. Don't open the windows till the ac- tual sweeping is finished, or the current of air will scatter the dirt over the room again. Sprinkle salt or tea leaves on the floor and work from the corners to the center of the room. The stroke should be long, the broom always on the floor pushing the dirt before it, not setting it in mo- tion by swinging it round. Carpets that are often taken np can be cleaned in the following way, which raises no dnst and leaves the carpet looking very bright and fresh. Get a bucket of lukewarm water, to which liquid ammonia in the proportion of a tablespoonfnl to two gallons has been added. Dip a clean house flannel in this, wring it as dry as you can and wipe the carpet with the grain. The dirt and dnst will collect in lumps be- fore yonr flannel. The cloth needs fre- quent rinsing, and the water must be changed as it gets dirty. After the room has been swept and any dust there may be has settled the woodwork shonld be wiped with a damp cloth, using a little whiting on the cloth For dirty places in the case of paint or turpentine on a dry cloth for varnished. Don't forget that the pictures need dusting. A careful housekeeper of my acquaintance insists on this attention being paid to the backs as well as to the fronts. See that everything is moved for dusting. Dusty rims rcnnd ornaments proclaim a careless housekeeper. The best plan is to have the first dnster slightly damp and finish off with a dry one. How to Make Tomato Mayonnalie. Select firm and good sized ripe, ice cold tomatoes. Cut a slice from the top and scoop out the seeds and soft pulp with a spoon, being very careful not to break the tomato. Shred cress very fine and mix with a small quantity of may- onnaise dressing. Fill the tomato with the mixture, put a teaspoonfnl of dress- ing on the top of each tomato and serve on crisp curly leaves of cress. How to Remove While the child lies on its mother's lap screaming place a thin cloth or handkerchief over the month and face. Place your own mouth to that of the child and give a sudden forcible puff. The effect of this is to expel, or at least to send forward, the contents of the nostrils. In this way a plnm stone has been blown clear out of the nose, and in other cases a button or other foreign body has been shifted so near to the ex- ternal nares as to render it easy of re moval and thns save a great deal of painful and difficult poking about in the recesses of the nostril.

"I have Just returned from Hon- said be, "haying left there on the 17th of last May. A peculiar proposition was made to a number of New York capitalists. A man, an Ainer- lean by birth, caine to the metropolis from Honduras with the news of a rich strike on his mining property in country, lie brought maps and dia- grams and samples of ore. lie declared he had one of the richest mines in the world and only needed capital to de- velop a bonanza.

How to Care For the Chapped and rough lips are not only painful, but disfiguring, and it is ad- visable never to go into the open air without previously using a little glyc- erin or vaseline upon the month. To moisten the lips with the tongue has a drying effect upon the skin ultimately, and the habit is one to be rigorously avoided._______________ How to Make Tomato Marmalade.

Scald the. tomatoes to remove skin and pare, core and slice the apples. Add sugar to to- matoes and apples and boil slowly one hour. Stir and skim when needed.

They sent for me and showed the papers and samples and asked for an opinion of the venture. In writing the scheme looked promis- ing, but 1 refused, of course, to make a report without a personal examina- tion. Then they decided to send me down to see the mine. So 1 went, and It was well 1 did. "In order to reach the mine we had to make a journey of over 150 miles Into the interior on muleback. The trip was rough. We came to a steep mountain which rose directly out of the plain to a height of over feet. We were compelled to follow the trail, and this took us over the mountain. In a number of places the path was so dangerous and narrow that I got off the mule's back and caught hold of his tail. Then I made the beast drag me along. The summit was reached in just three hours and five minutes. Aft- er a short rest we made the descent on the other side. H took us less time. ''When we reached our destination a very short inspection of the mine proved that it was utterly worthless. Had money been ad for ma- chinery and supplies not only would tisey never have been forwarded to the mine, but the Americans could not have recovered their belongings. By the way, there is only one other mine of any importance in Honduras. It is operated by American capital and is located far away from the Atlantic coast. It Is a silver proposition, and the ore is smeltcred near the mine. The molten metal is formed into bars containing ounces. These bars are carried by the natives to the coast. None of this bullion has been stolen. Should a workman try to dis- pose of a bar of silver the theft would be at once suspected and an arrest would immediately follow. "On the trip iv ate deer. morn- ing one of the men in tlie party would go out with his ritle. and he never fail- ed in :i short time to bring in an ani- mal. When we had consumed all of the fresh meat that we needed we had the remainder jerked. That is, the meat was cut into thin and salt- ed. As the air dry the meat never spoiled. "I saw but two snakes in Honduras. The reason is that at the end of the dry season all the vegetation and un- derbrush is burned. Then, too. they have a bird which they call the snake hawk and which travels around in pairs. When a snake is spied on the ground the male bird will descend sud- denly: and. grabbing the reptile, will fly uj) In the air and then let it fall. The female bird is ready on the instant the snake reaches the earth and at once she gives it another excursion. Then the snake is given a second drop, whereupon the male bird takes it on its third sky journey and gives it the final drop. The snake is then dead and Mr. and Mrs. Snake Hawk go off and enjoy a pleasant meal. "While on the trip we had many in- teresting experiences, and I had a good opportunity to observe the country, and I was not favorably impressed with it. t should not advise any one with small capital to go there. Bana- nas and coffee are the most important products. The export of cattle on a large scale should pay good profits. "A mau named Ballantine Is at the present time engaged In doing this thing. While I was there he sent a shipload of cattle to Cuba. He paid a bead In silver money and sold his entire cargo for about a head in gold. All the expenses of the transac- tion had first to be paid, and the ship- per stood any loss by deaths in the herd. He must have made a clear per head on ench nnitnal. "There is an American syndicate which is largely interested in the de- velopment of Honduras. Among the members of It are Chauncey M. De- pew and Colonel John Jacob Astor. One thing they hope to accomplish Is the completion of the present railroad. They propose to extend the line to the Pacific ocean. An English company has some sort of lien on the property, and until they can be induced to sur- render their claim very little can be ac- compllslied in this direction. "The fruit steamers come down ev- ery Tuesday and load the following day. The entire fruit Industry Is in the or rue wneiaer Banana conptny, and the manager of the business a mau uamed Kleth. He is a former king of Costa Ulca and sold out In- terests to the banana trust for UOO. While we were down there the Atlas line steamer Adirondack took away lli.ouo bunches of bananas from the plantations once owned by ex-King Kleth. "Honduras has quite a number of American residents. Five hundred of our troops could capture the country any tiuie. Colonel Cooper, a native of the 1 uited. States, is the manager of the rullioad and is the local represent- ative Astor's American syndicate.

"1 lif.-ml an interesting story of the prominent part winch an American named Christmas took in one of the most recent of the numerous revolu- tions in Honduras. This man is a loco- uiotiu- engineer ami receives a day. One morning he attending to his duties a party of rebels entered the port on an improvised gunboat. At the new- of tliis the regular train loaded with government troops .started out of tin-1 ity. The rebels cap- tured the place aud at once demand- ed that Christmas engage in the serv- ice of the new regime. At Brst he re- fused to obey, but the rebels Insisted, so he concluded to join the new rulers. "There happened to be another en- gine and some freight cars in the city. On one of the flat oars they placed a lot of irou and formed a kind of stock- ade. Behind this Christmas, two com- panions and a lot of guns aud ammuni- tion were placed. Then the other cars were tilled with rebel troops and the train started. The idea was to catch up with the regular government train and capture it and its soldiers. I'retty soon they caught up. and a running tight ensued. Over of the regular troops were killed, and the result was that Christmas was compelled to leave the country. "The president of Honduras bad of- fered a reward for Christmas dead or alive, but as soon as the trouble was over Christmas went back to that coun- try. He called upon the commander of the local garrison and informed him that the purpose of returning was peaceful. It was ft bold thing to do, aud the officer was startled. Christinas was ordered not to leave the city, and the president was communicated with. That personage sent word that Christmas could have temporary free- dom. Three months later the intrepid American was sent for by the chief magistrate. The result of the confer- ence was an otter to Christmas of a generalship in the regular army. This he refused to accept, as a steady job at per day was more attractive than that of a precarious military office. "Among the most prominent mer- chants of Honduras are the Pear broth crs. There are three of thorn now, al though until quite recently there were four. These men were ouce Ameri- can citizens, nml as they prospered in the laud of their adoption they sent for a younger brother. He happened to reach Honduras while one of the fre- quent revolutions was in progress. He neither the language nor the manners and customs of the peo- ple. "A military order was issued by the regular army otlicials that no citizen should approach within 'M paces of a sentinel. Young Pear .started one inoru- HOMIUKAS ing to walk from his home to his office, wiiich was just opposite. He looked up and saw a soldier. ho nt once or- dered him to do somethiug. Young Pear did not comprehend the meaning of the command, so he stood still and threw up his hands. The sentinel spoke. again and recehed no answer. Then the third time he repeated the words and leveled his gun aud shot at tin.- trembling American. Death soon fol- lowed. "An investigation was demanded by angry relatives. It was clearly proved that the distance between the soldier and young Pear was at least 80 paws. The verdict was that a cold blooded murder had been committed. Our min- ister to Honduras looked after the in- terests of the Pears. An indemnity of was asked from the govern- ment of Honduras. Whether this has been paid I am not certain. I know, however, that the president has issued orders that in the future the lives and property of Americans shall be re- spected. Furthermore the governors of the different states are to be held per- sonally responsible for any Insult to our flag." WILLIAM R. BHITTON. lit Wmthlng don't scrub it and wear off the sur- face.
