HUTCHINSON DAILY NKW8: SATURDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 20.1*90. LETTER. He Says the Union Scheme Is Very Dead. SPECULATIONS FOIl THE FUTURE. A Snmmury fit fti� Tlilnga That Are flnltl l>y the Knlliiidinslfi Who Watch with ArjyiiH V.ycn the Doings or Iho Men on llm Dhttnoml, lOopyri^lit hy American rVefW Association.] The prist wpoU'h mmsfition In biwliall Wfts a rovivnl of the. niniilgnmutionM'lu'nu,1 which was Bp rend bofon? the public down to its most ininuto details by Junii'.s K. Kennedy, nmmiger t>t the dutunct HrooU-lyut*. Tin Tit was an immediate rush by nil parties eoueerned to deny tin- scheme. And Jill parties told tho truth so far as their denials went. There had been no deal iniiile, and, as Ihavenfiim predicted and insisted, thent will he none of the nature outlined in the plan of union that has erAited sueh n rumpus. Hut It iw n waste of hreuUt for the parties directly interested to toll u.h that they did not plan such a deal and try to carry It out. Mr. Kennedy is a man wliwe word will tfO �!>out m fTir those who are now busy In Lelling the public that belied. It will be noticed, howevor, that the five men whom Kennedy say a yrvrv. trying tu make I he deal do not deny the attempt. They all unite In Haying that nothing has been dune and wUI "'it no. rrhi* Is trnc tnoiwh. The attempt; was a failure for the reiisuim I havo frwiuontly l^iven, namely, t hat all the ronltictlng interest a could not be snik.fteO. Union having been '.icfouted, the men who nre never witislied I'Xrept when they am \v devoto their attention to briujriiiK about an alliance. T1jc.sc men have one pet. project which they have ever before thorn, and thai Is tu break up the National agreement, which lum Wen such a powerful fact or in the sue-fXHH of prnti'ssiuwU baseball, utid will cuu-tinutt to l>e such a factor, 1 hopi-, u.s long tia the game is played. If tin* American association could Ik- persuaded to play tin* Players' league club champion* for the. world's championship, the National agreement would l>e in great, jeopardy, and perhaps Ixi wrecked. The prospect of great gains is U'lng held up to the Assorialinti people, and from now until iit will not Ik* broken in U-'X). There are a- \ i't po^it ivir indiiat ions n.s tf� I h''intent ion of the l'layci--' h-ague in rei-'.'ird to its rinuii inr w\i s'.-;i-oii.

'oward Milwaukee anil .St. Louis, it is only fair to nay in t hi-t eonuect ion that, t he ljiilialo people in-M that they will ke�p their club going nuo;her swison. The Mgu-> of the times point toward one event, t hat has not recently n-i.vi �fd mucli attention, and that is t he amalgamation of t he Ath- I letic dub witli the Philadelphia (R L.) club. It looks to me tin if the chances are in favor of such a deal. The Athletic club could withdraw from the American association honorably in November and join hands with the Players' club. Surely neither of those clubs has made any money during this .season, and no matter how things go next year they are not likely to make a fortune then, or even enough to pay a nominal dividend on the invented interest. I know that tho Players* league men have j been busy all season trying to bring about [ such a deal, and have a pretty well deliued suspicion that they will succeed. It will bo noticed that whenever Manager Sharsig is interviewed on the subject lie invariably says that his hands aro tied aud that his lips are sealed. This and other things that could tx'clt&l are significant that such a deal is in the air, if it has not already been agreed upon. Certainly it would be a wise one for the Players' league team, and I am not sure but the At hletic club would profit by the arrangement. I have not been able to arrive at any conclusion as to the policy of the National league for 1WU in regard to its circuit. The indieat ions are t hat Pi! Mr.irg will he abandoned, and yet Rihn't O'Neill has been signing men to contracts fur two years. He �ays, ;>:jd.m>uicwhnt emphatically too, that there will hi: a League team in Pittsburg next year, k looksa^if that matter-would be settled when thy Player*' league make their public anmmiu cnients for is'.ti, Tho chances are that 1 'it:Omnr will be abandoned by l iiL> Nut ional fragile. Unless Messrs. O'Neill, Nimtek, lb-own and Con-verso tire able to get. together u bang-up nine, one that can win more games than it loses, (.hey only invite continued disaster by keeping up the light. Where the League would 11ml n city to take the place of Pittsburg without invading tho domain the American association is hard to say. Certainly It would bo suicide to go to Indianapolis or Waslung-lon. Time will solve the problem. No one can even guess at it now. unless ho might venture on Ijomsville. And why not Louisville? Now hear tho enemies of the league shunt in chorus: "They are going to take Louisville. Qh, tho robbers I" TIIINUH THAT AltK rati), That when Ward, Brunnell and John* son concocted tho amalgamation scheme they bit. oif more than they could chow. That they found that iho "arrangements they had made" could not bo carried out when they presented their scheme to the capitalists. That the Cincinnati team has finally got the ingredient it needed, "sand." It was furnished when l^it ham was put in charge. That had Jjuliuni been with them from the start the Ueds would bo either ilrst or second, with u good chance for tho pennant. That Anson's learn is nutting up a great game of ball, and that if Lnhy and Stein liud been with him all scjisoii thu "old man" would have given them all a hustle for the championship.

WILLETT, NO. 4 SOUTH MAIN STREET. uperiKor tit nays gone ny, out tips or recent years developed into n vent^ldo re-clnso. Mr. Miller is not al. all charmed with our modern civiii'/atiuu. There are many material tilings which grate harshly upon his poetic nature, tmd ho has learned to ignore rather than to love the bustling, busy life of city and town. Not many years ago he declared that never again would ho cross tho continent, nnd that the country" to the east of Mount Shasta, whose rugged peaks ho loves so well, would f-ee him no more. High up on the foothilln, three miles b;ic!i of East Oakland, .Miller purchased a fifty acre tract of land two years ago, a:.d here hii has built his home. From the du'trway of his cottage he views the Golden Gate and the cities of San Francisco and (Oakland. They are near enough to him, ho says, from that distance, and he basso far followed his life as ii hermit that he scarcely ever comes tu the city. During the past year his visits have been growing more infrequent, and he even refuses To see the city people v.-h.o climb the mountain side to pay their respects to him. A huig. winding, narrow path, just wide enough for a sharp fhod horse to climb, leads to the home of the poet recluse. Once upon the summit Joaquin Miller's place is pointed out tu the visitor by a rancher's child. There is ricarcely a foot of level land on the poet's tract of titty aci.'s. Shade and fruit trees,young but sturdy; plants, flowers and a straggling stone wall cling to the mountain ide as if fastened then? and held in place by invisible strings. The "home" consists of three cottages, fifty feet apart, strange, odd and fanciful buildings, designed after some weird genius of an architect. Miller lives in one, his mother in another and the other members of the household in the third. When a reporter climbed the dizzy height he found the door of the poet's cottage open. In tho center of the room 1 was ii cot, luxurious iu rugs and furs, and on tho cot reclined the poet, busy with pen and paper, pausing in his work only long enough to glance through the open doorway at tho city below and the blue expanse of ocean far beyond. This, as the poet claims, is his only inspiration -the view of what man has made and the wtT.*k of (iod as tho background of the picture. Joaquin remains in bed until high noon. Awaking at an early hour, he takes a light it-past and smokes a cigar, tmd then he writes and works incessantly until noon. When his day's task is done he gets up like other meu, roams about his acres, trains his vines or nurses the young trees growing on the hillside. His trees are a passion with him. Even while composing verses, and while en-joyii.g his morning labor iu night cap and dressing gown, he thinks of his trees. He has gathered them from the uttermost parts of the earth, has imported sprifr, spray and sprout from every known part of the civilized world. Mia.

Each has her own dwelling place, which is sacred to the occupant. "1 'ixdievo in personal seclusion." nays tho root. "A man should not be familiar even with members of his own family. There are times in the life of every one when solitude is an absolute necessity. Men enjoy their own aociety the best, and, doubtless, women ure the same. Every day men and women intrude too much upon each other. When I walk over to mother's cottage I stand without her door, hat iu hand, and knock for permission to enter. The same is true when she calls at my door. We meet in common only at table. My house is my castle, and even my mother would not break in on my solitude without first asking permission."-San Fran ciBco Chronicle. lad thrust on* his tongue to see whether it would bite.

Mc:int'*t Woman In Chelsea. The meanest woman in Chelspa has been found. She1 engaged a poor washwoman at fifteen cents an hour, nnd during the job set the clock back an hour. The trick was discovered, uud the me;*>n woman's husband paid the proper amount, declaring that he had been known as a mean man himself, but this beat any of his performances.-Chelsea � Mass.J Kecord. Tho ran c*t Ventilation �r HlcciUn^ lUima*. All persons spend more or less time in their sleeping rooms. As n rul�, about one-third of our lives is thus spent The sleeping room, therefore, (mould bo the best aired. The most comfortable and in all other respects the mast healthful room. Ample ventilation is much needed at all hours, but enjieeial attention should be paid to ventilation during td�ep. There is no danger in having a sleeping apartment well ventilated, provided one sleeps warm, being well protected by an abundance of cover. The desire of a well regulated housekeeper to have her work done early in the morning causes her to leave one of the most important items of neatness undone. The most effectual purifying of the bed aud bedclothes cannot take place if the proper time is not allowed for a thorough airing, which removes all the human impurities which have collected during slumber. Two or three hours at the least should be allowed every day for a thorough ventilation of bed and bedroom, and occasionally bedding constantly used should be carried into the open air and exposed to the sun and wind for half a day. There is an old exploded notion that it is better to sleep in a cold room. Given good ventilation, a fire in a sleeping room in cold weather is healthy. Cold bed chambers imperil health and invite diseases. The old, the infantile aud the Crail should sleep in moderately warm rooms in cold woather, provided with ample ventilation - Cor.

The fitnmp agent draws every day upon the American Bank Note company for as many stamps as he requires to fill tho orders transmitted to him from Washington.

During tho time tho boy was away at school hu received no less than five autograph letters similar to that given above, nnd when he returned for tho Christmas holidays tho toad was still alive to gladden his heart. The story is even more delightfnl than that of the duke's indignation when ho found that a party of children at Stratlitleldsaye-auiong whom, wo believe, was tho present prime minister-were having their tea without jam. Tho incident roused him to immediate action, and ho at once rang the bell and issued a general order that "children's tea" was never to bo served in bis house with Buch "maimed rights."-Spectator. H� Withdraws from the DlRddlngr Crowd Ui Oolduu Gate Holghti. There waa a ripple of surprise manifest when Joaquin Miller, the poet of the Sierras, refused to, furnish the annual poem for the local committee. People who know the erratic Joaquin, however, did not uuu'vel over his refusal, us they liure known fur a long time that the poet 1� no longer tho public*, character, tbe man of tho world and the platform An Ottjeetlou to Embalming. On more than one occasion chemists and physician? have shown that the present fashion of having bediea roughly embalmed Miortly after death throws serious difficulties in the way of chemical jinalyses in cases of suBpected poisoning. In a recent number of Tho Boston Medical and Surgical Journal a physician relates a case in which a young married woman died with symptoms resembling thoe of arsenical poisoning. Before a post mortem examination could be made the undertaker, aa a matter of routine, introduced into the body a large quantity of a preserving fluid containing arsenic, b>> that the chemist's examination was fruitless and his report valueless. _ HU Curloalty SutUllud.

While Max o'liell was on a lecturing tour in this country ho was one day approached by a young man who thanked him earnestly for bis lecture the "previous night, saying: "1 never enjoyed myself nunc in my life."- The pleased lecturer grasped his admirer's hand. *l am glad," he said, "that my humble effort pleased you so much." **Yes," said the young man, "it gave me immense pleasure. You see, I am engaged to a girl in town, and her family all went to your show*, and I had her at homo all to myself. Oh, it was a happy evening-thank you so much, Mr. O'Bell. Do lecture again soon."' It is best to swallow a compliment as you do a sugar coaled pill-without inquiring into its inwardness.-Lewistou Jo^nal. An Kye Glass, but No String. Max O'Uell writes in The Washington Star: "The young French dandy takes kindly, too, to the single eye glass, which, to be really effective, must now be worn without a string. I do not mean that the string takes away from the virtue of the glass, but it lias been decided that it detracts from the stylishness of the elegant aid to vision. "An eye glass must not now bo an appendage, but a part of one's self. The aim is clearly to show that one is so confident of his ability to nuiititain the glass in position that astring is needless. The great desideratum is to be able to eat with it, ride with it, dance with it, laugh with it, sneeze with it (if yon can see with It so much the better), in fact, to look as if you slept with it and found it in its place in the morning. 'Of course accidents will happen to tho best regulated eye glasses, and necessarily part of the training for wearing a stringlesa one properly is to learn to pick it up nonchalantly when it does stray away from home, unless you adopt Mr. Whistler's plan.

Capt.-, of tho royal artillery, was salmon fishing on tho southwest Mira-michi, above Boiestown. In an unlucky and unguarded moment, as he was rather hastily swinging around hia salmon rod preparatory to casting, hia large hook caught in tho thin part of an ear of T. P., one of the captains men, who. as an ardent and a better fisherman than his master, was intently watching the motions of a large salmon which the captain was endeavoring to secure. Seizing the line with both hands, eo as to save his ear as far uh possible, T. P, slowly walked up to his master to be relieved from the hook. "Break it off, captain; break it offl" said one of the party. "No, no," replied the captain, "1 am going to do no such thing. Would you have me destroy my best Uy?" And so quietly taking a sharp penknife out of 4�iH pocket and slitting tho lobo of Ids servant's ear ho thus safely redeemed the favorite fly uninjured.
