Piper made Fife tic to Day. Enforced abstinence from a Pim has been breaking him Ilij Olbo that the jailers Are already be to fear that he will never live to i Tho Gallows. Illila foiling health was shown first by Rahb Klyment that he knew of a death. But that it was the result later by the writing of a his Mother and yesterday j�v.fe88�on of the crime for which together with two others a baffled the Best efforts of the p%3in the first place to the Yot Sag of which he Ollil praying mat he had Felt a to kill somebody and had Hup into tip Belfry with which a fold in wait for a Girt about by to but Mabel foil Tahi Bohra request a. Went up with a pm her by striking her two a her Bead with the Bat. Confessed that he was the Mux Wood Derer of Bridget Landregan which crime was committed in the year 1873, and for which he was once arrested and discharged. The evening on which he murdered her he was possessed with the same desire to kill and he nerved himself by drinking a compound of opium and whisky and selected for his instrument of death a piece of. A Wagon Shaft which he sawed at the proper length and secreted. He then went out to watch for his victim. The unfortunate one he selected be saw get out of a horse car. He did not know Ner but he got his club and followed her to a secluded spot when he crept up behind her and struck her two terrible blows upon the head. He then ran Home from which he had not been absent More than fifteen minutes and went to bed. He also confessed to the assault on Mary Tyner in july 1874, for which he has never been suspected. He was to her room at night and seeing that she waa sleeping was seized with the desire to kill bet Ana he accordingly beat her upon the head and left her Fer dead escaping through an open window. The Date of pipers execution is fixed for May 26. There is Little doubt about the truth of his statements concerning the two murders but some discredit is thrown upon the other matter by the detectives who think his object May be to create a belief that he is insane and irresponsible. The Public however demands his execution and there is no Hope for executive clemency. The Chicago Cyclone the Chicago morning papers of the 7th Ana 8th give lengthy detailed accounts of the effects of the Tornado on the 6th, from which we make the following extracts before the tempest burst upon the City the sky was overcast with heavy Clouds from which the rain descended in torrents. Then the dark Clouds that had been gathering in the Southw est suddenly began to move like huge Billows heaving and tossing against one another. From this terrible Cloud darted ragged lightning flashes while the Thunder crashed Al Ove shaking the City to its very foundation. On rolled the Black Cloud enveloping the City in a gloom of night which was ouly relieved by the lurid Glare of the lightning which now flashed out incessantly while the Thunder crashed without cessation. Then to add to the horror of the scene came the Roar of the tempest which deafened every other sound and which made the solid blocks reel and tremble beneath its terrible Force demolishing nearly everything that stood in its Way. Its effects were Felt in nearly every Quarter of the City but the main Shock was confined to a track a mile or More in Width. Its course was very irregular first sweeping Over the City from West to East then turning North and then sweeping away Over the Lake in a northeasterly direction. So far As has been ascertained the tempest struck Down non the City in the Vicinity of the bridewell where it wrought sad havoc with the fences. Seeming to gather strength As it rushed on it came with terrible Force upon the habitations in the neighbourhood of Paulina and Twenty second streets where among other objects it Tore in pieces a three Story tenement House killing 8ome of the inmates. From this Foint its path Tor Miles eastward is clearly a naked with the ruin that it wrought a Quot a a Var which k passed from Paulina Street to me River is known As the lumber District. Here for a distance of Over two Miles along the Bouth Branch millions upon millions of feet of lumber Are piled and Here the tempest raged in its wildest fury. Huge piles of lumber were overturned while the air was filled with great boards and Bunches of lath and shingles and what was in one Yard was most unceremoniously deposited in another and not a Little difficulty will be experienced by the rightful owners in obtaining their own again. Then it dashed raging and roaring across the River until it reached the Lake and Here it turned and with increased fury rushed northward covering nearly the entire South division. Reaching eighteenth Street it struck the county Hospital and Tore Oft a portion of the roof. At fourteenth Street it came with Sav age fury against the tall and Graceful spire of Grace episcopal Church and in an instant overturned it and sent it crashing throw Grothe roof. Still on it rushed and Hauka mile further on it met with resistance in the shape of the Michigan Southern Railroad freight depot but the resistance was Short for As if maddened that anything should dispute its passage it Tore the building to the ground. In the Palmer House it met with an antagonist that braved its Lury but with spite Ftp vengeance it seized upon the elaborate Centrepiece and Tore it to fragments. Then on Over the business Center it rushed the volume of the storm passing above the buildings fortunately fior had it been otherwise there is no calculating the destruction of property and the loss of life that would have ensued. It swept along the Lake Shore on the North Side for a Short distance then rushed toward the crib. The Tower containing the big tog Bell was swept away. It was without exception the most terrible wind storm that has Ever visited this Northern Section of country. It came without premonition and the Cloud Buret that accompanied it and in a moment a perfect Avalanche of water fell from the Black Clouds above drenching to the skin the unfortunate pedestrians who had not sought shelter. While raged the scene on the principal streets was one of wild and terrible excitement. Frightened horses dragging ponderous hitching weights dashed wildly through the streets terror stricken men women and children ran hither and thither into any place that offered Protection from the pitiless storm carriages were overturned huge boxes rolled and danced along the sidewalks signs sailed through the air crashing through the plate Glass windows or crushing upon the sidewalk men and women were rolled Over and Over in the mud hats were whirled away Over lofty buildings while umbrellas were simply torn to shreds leaving Only the Skeleton above the head of the unfortunate owner. While there waa Universal terror and dismay there a but Little if any profanity for on such occasions profanity is not deemed to be necessary beside that the lightning whizzed too unpleasantly close and the Thunder spoke too loudly. The county Hospital on eighteenth Street which a in the path of the Tornado was denuded of a portion of its roof and for an instant the rickety old Structure threatened to fall in upon the hundreds of sick and helpless pensioners of Cook county. About 1,200 Square feet of roofing a lifted bodily from the Northwest Corner of the building and its fragment were borne through the air As far East As Clark Street four Block away. Large sections of the tin sheeting which covered the remaining portion of the roof were torn completely armr and hurled into the Street in front of the Hospital. Every Atrip of sheeting on the Root of the main building was torn from its fastenings at one 0 More Corners and twisted out of shape. The patient were wild with fear the crash of falling Chimney the shrieking and creaking of the disrupted roof the cracking of beams and scantling above the rocking of the building u it reeled beneath the terrible Force of the wind and Over All the Savage Roar of the tempest served to Madden the in a mates and All was forgotten but the instinct of self preservation. Lite we Sweet even to those poor wretches and from their misery they we Good but the release that comes with death. The panic stricken sufferers sprang from their cots where they bad Laid , and rushed wildly Tor the doorways and hallways to escape from the threatened danger. Over the shrieks of the terrors Trie Ken crowd rang the wild laughter of a boy of fifteen in Ward a who had suffered amputation of the leg and who in a delirium of Delight shouted As he heard the wild noise of the storm without and above. A Man in the same Ward who had a Brick Hung to his Arm to straighten it picked up the Brick Verv carefully and rushed away for safety. Patients who were unable Evento turn in bed galvanized by fear sprang up and fled shrieking through the corridors. Through the gaping ragged roof a volume of water poured in upon the struggling crowd saturating the cots and wetting to the skin the patients before escape w As possible to the room below. Tire most serious catastrophe of the Hurricane occurred at the Michigan Southern freight depot which is one of the largest freight depots in the world. It is 800 feet Long running from Polk to Taylor streets facing on one Side on the Railroad track Imd off the other on Pacific Avenue. It seemed As though the storm stayed for a moment in its passage to gather full strength then with giant Force it hurled itself against the building and at that instant a Bolt of lightning crashed against the tin roof. It ran Down the wet slate roof to the Corner of the building when with irresistible fury it ended the Walls crumbling them literally to pumice and a massive door was shivered and riddled to splinters in an instant. Through this Reu. The wind came roaring and raging the building was lifted from its foundations and dashed upon Pacific Avenue and the entire 225 feet of the South end was wrecked completely. At the time of this catastrophe the building was occupied by about seventy five men but very fortunately nearly All of them were engaged about the Center of the building. Some ten or twelve were however at work at the South end of the building and so rapidly was the work of destruction done that they were unable to escape from the falling Walls. A despairing shriek rang out through the building Over the horrible grinding of the crushing Walls and then with a Dull and heavy crash the ruin closed Over the doomed men. A few escaped with but slight bruises Bix of them however were caught by the falling Walls and most horribly mangled. The alarm of fire was at once sounded and the firemen aided those present in extricating the sufferers beneath the ruins. It was a terrible scene of wild confusion. From the inextricable mass came the shrieks of the buried victims calling for Aid which for a time the crowd were unable to Render. Both Walls of the building had fallen toward the West while the roof had Slid Den Clear across the Street. Merchandise of every description was heaped in every conceivable shape and entangled with the debris of the building. The ruin was pouring in torrents but w without a moments delay the Brave men began their work of humanity. As fast As removed the unfortunate Meir were placed in carriages and taken Home where medical attendance was furnished them by the Railroad company. The same gust of wind that crushed in the freight House Tore off a piece of the galvanized roofing of the a a Ganger inti Hurt urfi ii Biywit the buildings 00 the opposite Side of the Street. The most disastrous Accident that happened in the Southwest portion of the City w As the destruction of the reaper Mission a three Story Frame building Twenty by sixty feet situate amp a at 625 West Twenty second Street. It was occupied on the ground As a Mission Church. The second was the residence of Michael Burns and his family which consisted of himself wife and four children. The third floor was occupied by a family named Kohn. A mrs. Runk and her son Frederick aged twelve years were on their Way to do some work when the sudden Flash of lightning came Down upon them. They sought shelter in the Hall Way of the Mission building and scarcely had they entered it Ere the Structure was scattered to the Lour Points of the Compass by the sudden Squall. Fred. Runk was killed instantly his neck being broken by a piece of Timber striking him. The Mother was also badly bruised but not dangerously Hurt. Little Michael j. Burns aged four years was very badly Hurt internally but had no Bones broken. Little Freddy Kohn was injured very badly internally and it is not believed that he will recover. The other inmates escaped with a few slight scratches. Beveral minor casualties Are reported. Ries thrown Back upon their intrinsic merits the Sanse As Are myriad articles of civilized food they would quicken the energies of the world without stimulating Beuc Napper. It is. Easy and fashionable to descant against the aristocracy which has no other foundation than Money and to Call it shoddy and All that. To put such theories in practice is a very different matter. Robert Burns with All his Fine scorn Tor a a the Guinea stamp a had a morbid weakness for Fellowship with the very class he held up to execration Many a Martyr has gone to the stake with less heroism than it would take to act in social affairs upon the axiom that character is More honorable than Money. Some one has said and it Isa truism that a intelligence refinement wit shrewdness cultivation Are infinitely More Lovely and desirable than vulgarity and display a but ten to one the person who said that lacks the Pluck to say the same in the language of action. And herein is a Strong argument for prof. Swings a a lace theory. Hard As it is to resist the temptations of a diseased appetite for liquor it is vastly harder to Rise above the degrading social Power of a a journal. Three Hundred and fifty lire alligators. A a in a recent discourse suggested no doubt by the Belknap scandal prof. Swing declared that lace had caused More miser it than alcohol. Of course he used the term lace in a representative sense and meant to affirm that the extravagances born of vanity have wrought More evil thaa those born of Strong drink. This is a startling proposition quite susceptible of into ridicule but it has a Broad foundation in approximate if not absolute truth. The luxuries of life All Range under two classes and minister either to vanity or to appetite. Add to these the Blind and unreasoning desires which we Call passion and we have the Trinity of All evil. But take from the world the stimulus they afford and very Little would remain of that fabric called civilization. No evil is unmixed with Good no Good untouched by evil. The least harmful and the most energizing of the luxurious appetites Spring from hunger. Upon the simplest breakfast table every continent is represented. The ends or the Earth meet and Are blended by the Alchemy of the oven in every Kitchen. It requires a vast amount of work contrivance and patience to furnish even the lunch of the Hod Carrier. All this comes under the head of luxury. We could live on Corn flesh and fish All found right at Home the same As the race which preceded us did but we Are civilized and prefer a a lace to Wampum wine to water. 80m. Dyspepsia is incident to cosmopolitan Liv ing but All agree that it pays. At the worst it is not very bad. But the appetite which Spring from thirst presents a contrast herein. The difference is precisely that Between sobriety and in Briety. If thirst were provided with a self regulation As unerring a that which is the Monitor of hunger there would be no drunkards. The comparison frequently made Between drunkenness and gluttony is simply preposterous. It must be admitted that lace approaches nearest of anything to comparison with whisky but even that a very far from attaining the bad pre Eminence of that evil which Cas Aio fitly called now and then a person love finery for its own Rake. 8uch folks Are to be found in both raze a Bol in Small numbers. The woman who Pant for Diamond a the Hart Pant eth for the water Brooks a and the Man who strains every nerve that he May his door plate to a Marble front a a ambitious for the rank which comes and goes with such possessions. If no one were to see those diamonds or know about them they would be worthless and if houses were invisible very Many would prefer cottages to palaces. The cure for a a lace is. Then in a Public sentiment which should. Deprive vanity fair of its Power except is the luxuries it offers Magitt be valuable for their own Sake. One would naturally prefer silk to Cotton Seal to but lilo and a House with All the modern improvements to a Tum-ble-40wd Horel. Wit i Clara of Isuzu a Nice lot of playthings in the form of 350 live alligators passed up the River yesterday on their Way to the National Centennial at Philadelphia. The hideous looking reptiles embraced Al sizes from the Little tiny thing six inches Long just out of its Shell to one feet in length named the latter venerable Rascal with a rather repulsive countenance is supposed to be nearly 1-50 years old judging by Marks he carries As set Forth by Audubon and other naturalists. These alligators were captured by or. Thomas l. Bond in the Vicinity of Pearl River la., and near its Entrance into Lake Pontchartrain. In the collection is a Small mean looking cuss named Ned who has Learned to stand on his Hind legs dance a Juba a and play tricks. Ned is about three years old and if this precocious plaything keeps on he will be Likely to ride an act in a circus before a great while. While the Steamer Robert Mitchell on which they Are Lay at the levee yesterday a Large number of curious people crowded around the wooden tanks or boxes in which the alligators sported. At one time 3ir. Bond Felt uneasy and he called a Comrade to watch his pets to keep people from carrying Oft half a dozen of them to eat. Or. Bond feeds the alligators on fish. At present they Are healthy and some of the amphibious and ferocious brutes look As if they would eat a hog in a minute or a Man Malanche. The work women of new York City. It is estimated by those philanthropists who direct the working women a protective Union that there Are in this City fully 130,000 females who earn a meager but honest living in the Industrial pursuits aside from the countless multitude who Are engaged in Domestic duties. The Ages of nearly one fourth of this number previous to the passage of a Senate Law Tor compulsory education ranged within the period of every Day a me Jarrar on esp Meak mornings and on the sultry summer dog Days these Little girls still in Short clothes Jay be seen crowding the ferries and the Street cars hurrying to the performance of from eight to twelve hours laborious toil in More than four Hundred various occupations in which women a tiny fingers Coin wealth for their employers. The occupations Are indeed varied. Thousands and tens of thousands Are employed in textile manufactures and the manipulation of precious and other metals.

Many More Are press feeders Type setter clock Orn menters backgammon Liard painters map counters and finishers and indeed in some instances workers one Fine watches and jewelry. There is scarcely a single Branch of Industry Itiat requires careful and delicate touch Bat woman is not employed in. The vast number however Are employed on articles of ladies and gentlemen a apparel in the manufacture of books playing and other cards the preparation of tobacco and colouring and finishing photographs. While in Many branches of Industry they Excel men their wages Are from one third to one half less and even then hundreds of the patient toilers in the stores and shops Are swindled most egregiously by their employers. It was of prosecute these swindlers of working women that prominent gentlemen and ladies organized the working woman a protective Union which is doing so much the earnings of these 130,000 female toilers in the Metropolis is a difficult problem to solve but the Best authorities estimate that they will average for thirty weeks in the year five dollars each w hich gives us a total of $650,000 per week or $19,500,000 per year in Thia City alone.
