The great strike of iron, Steel and tin workers sweeps over a stretch of .~ountry from the western boundary of New Jersey to the Mississippi river god beyond. It takes ia the states of Pennsyivania, Ohio, Indiana and Illi- nois, with offshoots in Wisconsin, Minnesota. Michigan and Maryland. Already the strike is on at plants in thirty-nine towns, and all of the plants of the United States Steel Corporation in these various ~tates will, it is be- lieved, be se#riously affected before the end of the fi'ouble.. The leaders of the Amalgamated association are going slowly, but threaten to call a strike on every combination controlled by the United States Steel Corporatkm bed*ore they are done. The mass of the men and plants affected are In Penn- sylvania and Ohio. as the number of black dots on the map will Indicate. The number of men out now in Penn- sylvania is 21,0C0, in Ohio 23.000, in Indiana 10,00(]. and In Illlnoks 2,,000. As many more may be involved later In the .struggle with the steel trust.

The court, however, prejudiced $~tainet her as a foreigner, though it Was, declined to convict her on the ground that she had really done noth- lug to justify her children being taken _~om her. Lack of funds prevented her from taking any further steps to establish rights. The social power of her ~tern fanatic old mother-in-law, the ~Uchess of Chevrsuse, was too great of any one risking her anger befriending the unfortunate young " DUchess. Every door was closed against her and without a single bad ~t being prove4 against her she died hunger as an outcast in a Paris ~hun and without seeing her children.

Mark Twain tells thus the story of first great London banquet, at WhiCh, by the way, there were 800 or guests, He admits that, not hav- ing been used to that kind of dinner, lie felt somewhat lonesome. "The lord mayor, or somebody, read out a list of the chief guests before we began .to eat. When he came to prominent names the other guesus would applaud. I found the man next'to me rather a :/ 0 g od talker. Just as we go~ up an in- teresting subject there was a tremend- 0Us clapping of hands. I had hardly ever heard such applause before. I tralghtened up and set to clapping Wlth the rest, and I noticed a good people round me fixing their at- on me, and some of them in a friendly and encourag- way. I moved about in my chair and clapped louder than ever. - ' 'Who is it?' I asked the gentleman '~ 'nn my right. "'Samuel Clemens, better known In ~;~ ?]~ngland as Mark Twain,' he replied. ]~' ~ I stopped clapping. The life seemed [ii to go out, of me. I never was in such I!/::; a fix in all my days. [~} Mrs Edwin Gould is one of t~he most ardent collectors in America and at time she declared that if she could get hold of the club with which pommeled Abel she would be the ,lest of women. On a recent visit Orleans she explored the quarter of that city and was finding numerous relics Of days long before Andrew Jackson ~hlpped 'the,British there. She also PRrNCESS CATHERINE YOURIEWSKI. picked up many valuable articles dat- ing back to the Napoleonic period, one being a solid silver piece which once had been the property of Jerome Bona- parte. About a year ago Mrs. Alfred Scher- merhorn, a soelety woman of Brook- lyn, lost her fortune in speculation. Nearly all of her swell friends mani- fested such strong disposition to drop her acquaintance that Mrs. Sehermer- horn took the initiative by dropping theirs, and being a woman of sense be- gan to look around for some means of self-support.She hit upon the idea of operating a laundry and opened such an establishment in Southampton, L. I.. where the faithful among her form- er friends are helping to make the ven- ture a success. The En~li~h Liberal~. While Lord Roseberry has been free to criticise his own party and to allege that it could no~ ~xist under its pres- ent conditions he has been equally un- reserved concerning the conservative party and government. Never, said he, in the remembrance of any impar- tial observer, has there been "any gov- ernment which had crowded such a frightful assemblage of error, weak- ness and wholesale blunders into its administration." The grave fault of the liberals is they can agree on no policy. They are split into fragments and yet so desir- ous are the leaders to keep together that at a dinner a short time since given at the Reform club, a vote of confidence was given to Sir Henry Campbell-Baunerman as the leader of the party. This, said Lord Roseberry, quoting the famous, phrase of Disraeli, Is "organized hypocrisy." In fact the liberal party in Great Britain is very much in the plight of the democratic party in the civll war, "in favor of the war, but agln its pros- ecution," It has been discovered that the Rothschilds are the holders 6f the missing ticket for the prize of I00,000 francs in M.

General Fltzhugh Lee has decided that the business in which he has de- termined to engage upon retiring into private life near Richmond, eL, will be "of an industrial character," but beyond this he-has refused to make any statement for publication: According to the anthropologist, A1- fredo Nicefore, a north Italian differs less from a German than he does from a Sicilian. Christened I e l la ne. Miss Mary Preble Anderson, who broke the customary bottle of sham-~ pagne to christen the battleship Matne, launched at Philadelphia Saturday, comes of a famous naval family. She is a great grand-daughter of Commo- dore Edward Preble, who having dis- tinguished himself as a young man in the American navy during the revolu- tion, commanded the Constitution-- Old Ironsides---during the famous ex- pedition against the Barbary pirates. He has always been styled the father MISS MARY PREBLE WHO (~HRISTENED THE MAINM. of the American navy, because it was he who first made It famous abroad. His nephew, Admiral George H. Preble, was distinguished in the war against Mexico and In the civil war, and his grandson, Edward Dear~ng Preble, uncle to Miss Anderson. rose to be lieutenant commander in the navy, and was navigator of the Kearsarge In its battle with the Alabama, Miss An- derson lives with her parents In Deer- lng street, Portland, and ts well known socially. , CHAPTER XVII.~(Continued.) "Why do you not reproach me?" she cried, passionately. "Abuse me. speak harshly to me--do anything but act toward me as you are doing; your kindness is killing me. Not all the epithets you could heap upon me would punish me sufficiently for all I have made you suffer. Have you for- gotten that I actually thrust myself upon you--that it was I who offered myself to you that fatal night, not you who asked for me? ,Why do you not taunt me with all this? Have I to put these cruel thoughts into your head. or Is It that you are too noble to use them against a woman? If you would only be unkind to me, I think I should not feel quite so wretched." Lyndon smiled, though rather sadly. "I am afraid you will have to go on being wretched forever if you are waiting for me to be unkind to you," he said. ",Do you know, strange as it ,may seem all the displeasure I felt In my heart against you has somehow disappeared, leaving only love and forgiveness in its place. I am not angry with you now, my darling; I am only sad, and a little lonely perhaps," he concl]~ded turning abruptly away. After ~short interval he came back to her side again, and went on with a forced cheerfulness that in nowise de- ceived her. "However," he said, "of course this state of affairs will not last forever. Time, they say, cures all things. In the meantime I will get through a lit- tle traveling, I think, and refresh my memory about certain, foreign cities, so good-bye for awhile, and do not quke forget me during my absence. And"--in a low tone--"remember, Mildred, that whatever you do, or whomsoever you marry, I wish you all the happiness that can possibly befall yOU." "Are .you sure you forgive me?" whispered Mildred, tremulously. "Think of all that has happened." "I do. indeed," he said. "Will you not kiss me then?" whis- pered Mildred. So he kissed ber once again, for the last time, upon her lips; and it was t~as they parted. CHAPTER XVIII. Denzll did not appear to recover quite so rapidly as had been at first confidently expected, the inward In- juries he had recelved--though slight ~teIllng on him more seriously than the doctors had anticipated. Mrs. Younge had been telegraphed for on the evening of the accident, and had arrived at King's Abbott early the following morning, having elected to travel all night rather than endure the agonies of suspense, though the telegram had been very reassuring. The third day showed their patient apparently better than on the preced- ing one. There had been more decided symptoms of amendment, and he had gone through the dressing of his wounds Wlth wonderful composure and stoicism. But toward even lug he grew depressed and irritable, and evinced a faint inclination to wander: where- upon the doctor lo~ked grave, shook his head and made certain changes in his medicine---but all to no purpose. The next day he was in a raging fever. The fifth day after the fever flrs~ declared itself Lady Caroline, having insisted on the poor mother's lying down for an hour or two, was sitting in Denzil's room as the time wore on toward evening. Bending over his bed, she noticed a certain change in his face. "What is it?" she asked, tenderly. "Mildred," he whispered, with deep entreaty in his tone. and ]aolding ou~ his hand. "I am not Mildred, dear Denzil," said Lady Caroline, thinking that he still raved; but he said: "I know you are not." quite'distinct- ly; and then again. 'I want hot--why does she never come to me?" Poor Lady Caroline was greatly per- plexed; she knew not what to do. Had things been different she would have followed the dictates of her own kind heart and sent for Mildred on the spot; but, as it was. she remembered former scenes and Lyndon's recent sad de- uarture and did not care to take the "esponsibiltty on herself of bringing nor daughter and Denzil together. "Mildred, Mildred!" called the sick man, impatiently; and then the little ray of reason that had come to him #~nnectlon with her face vanished, and be wandered off once more into the tet- rible feverland, bearing with him the name of her he loved. For two hours he lay thus, calting, ~ometimes wildly, sometimes feebly, but always for her, until ht~. loving nurse's heart was smitten to the core. At length came Stubber. the family doctor, and. seeing Denzil in this :state he regarded him silel~tly for several minutes. "Lady Caroline." said he. with de- clslon, "Miss Trew.nlon must be sent for, be it right or wrong." For which Lady Caroline blesse~ him secretly, and sent for Mi],dred forthwith. She came without a moment's delay, and, even as her foot crossed the threshold of the door, a sudden silence window, followed hurriedly by the doctor. What happened after that nobody ever knew, for Lady Caroline and Stubber, standing with their backs to the bed, and their faces turned to the chilly outer world, could tell nothing. When at length they returned to the bed they found Mildred pale and trem- bling, the heavy tears coursing each other down her cheeks in rapid suc- cession, which she hastily brushed away as they drew nearer her, her hand tightly clasped in Denzll's. He had even made an effort to hold her with the poor injured fingers, and had brought them so far that the tips touched hers. He was cults sane now. His face. slightly flushed, was looking upward; his eyes, glad and happy, were fixed on hers, while she answered back the gaze, forgetful of all'else but that he lay before her sick, it might be, unto death. "Denzll. you are exciting yourself," said Lady Caroline, nervously. "No. I am not," answered Denzil, his voice clear and distinct, but without removing his eyes fro~, Mildred's; "leave me for a moment.' He waved them back impatiently to the window, and neither Lady Caroline nor the doctor could bring themselves to disobey the command. But StuDber. who was becoming seri- ously uneasy about his patient, glanc- ing round at bim cautiously and sur- reptitiously, saw what followed. He said that when he and Lady Caroline had again withdrawn. Denzil looked at Miss Trevanion, and that then Miss. Trevanion stooped and kissed him, not once. but twice. This was what Stubber said. but he also added that it was his firm belief that she did it out of pure humanity and nothing more. When two minutes later, be agaln approached Younge, he found that Mildred had disappeared, and that Denzil was lying perfectly composed, his face turned toward the half-open door. He sighed heavily but contentedly, and then came back to the realities of life. "Doctor Stubber," said he, "do you know that I am better?" "Time will tell," answered the little doctor, sententiously; "and now you must go to sleep if you wish to keep in that much-to-be-desired condition. Lady Caroline, I trust to you to let no more young ladies into the room this evening." Denzil laughed quite rationally, and, changing over to the other side, in a few minutes, fell into a sound, refresh- ing slumber. $ * * * * * Not once again during all the re- mainder of his illness did Miss Trey- anion enter Denzll's room; neither did he ask for nor allude to her in any way, although Lady Caroline noticed the intense look of interest that cam0 lute his face whenever her name was casually mentioned. After a week or two, the remem- brance of her visit faded, or came to him only as a shadow from the fevered past he had gone through, and not un- til the doctor had given him permis- sion to quit his bed for an hour or so every day, to lie on a lounge in the adjoining apartment, did he venture to speak of it and try to discover the truth. It was one morning, when be was feeling considerably stronger, and had Mabel beside his couch, reading to him scraps of poetry that every now and then struck her fancy as she glanced through the volume i~a her hand, that he approached the subject. "Is your sister away from home?" he asked, in the middle of a most pa-+ thetic passage. And Mabel answered "No," redden- lng a little. "Then I think she mlght have com,~ to see me before this," he said, with all the frerfulnsss of an invalid. "Well, you see, she has all the house- keeping to attend to, now mamma ls so much your slave," returned Mabel, smillngj "that keeps her away. She always asks for you, though, and is so glad to hear of your getting on so rap- idly." This sounded rather lame, and Ma- bel, feeling it to be so, tried once more to resort to her book. "1 suppose it would give ber too much trouble to make her inquiries in person," he said, bitterlT; "everyone else comes.to see me except herself. Surely Lyndoa could not object to that ?" "Have you not heard, then?" asked Mabel, hesitatingly. "I fancied you would have known before this. Her engagement with Lord Lyndon Is at an end, He has been abroad for the last four weeks." CHAPTER XIX, "Mildred's engagement is at an end with Lord Lyndon!" Denzil's pal~. short laugh--"I am afra*.d you thl~l~ me a savage---do you?~and are won- dering whether I have sadly deterlor- ated during this illness, or whether I am now, for the first time, showing myself In my real character. The fa~ is, I like talking to you better than listening to the most perfect poetry that could be written. Now you can- not call that uncomplimentary, at all events, can you? I feel as though I had left the world for years, and. hav- Ing come unexpectedly back to It, am now hearing all the strange things that have happened during my absenc~--~ sort of Rip Van Winklish feeling, [ suppose; so I want you to educate me before I make my way down-tairs. Miss Sylverton was with me yesterday, and told me of Charlie's promotion. She said nothing of her marriage, how- ever; but no doubt that will follow, as a matter of course." "It ts almost arranged to take place next month." observed Mabel. "Queenle," said Denzil, in a low voice, "tell me this--when did I last see Mildred?" "It was she that saw you fall and went to your assistance, you know,'" returned "the queen" *evasively. "I know that," said Denzll--"your mother told me the whole story. But have I never seen her since--in any way ?" "Oh, where could you have seen her?" asked Mabel, jesuitically, and with considerable confusion, turning to arrange some flowers on the small table near her. "It was only a dream then," mur- mured Denzil, disapDointedly, and said no more on the subject to his com- panion's great relief. But the next day he tormented little Stubber to allow him to go down-stalrs. (To be continued,) DISTANT SO.O00,O00 MILES. Erc~ Is That Far from Us Most of the Time, Late last December the asteroid Eros, which was discovered about three years ago, came within 30.000,- 000 miles of the earth. This is not the nearest it gets to us. for at one point in its orbit it is. or would be if the earth was in the corresponding posi- tion in its orbit, within about 13,000.- 000 miles, but unfortunately this only occurs once in about forty-five years. Consequently the astronomers took advantage of the conditions prevailing in December to take innumerable pho- tographs of it and a few stars In Its vicinity in connection with the sun from all points possible, with the ~)b- ject of using them as a basis for the computation of the sun's distance fram the earth, which, though known ap- proximately, has never been deter- mined with precision. As the earth and the star are now speeding away from each other and further photo- graphing, therefore, of no avail for the purpose, the astronomers ~aave begun the task of measuring the photographs some 5.000 or 6,000 in number, to as- certain the distance in minutes and seconds of an arc between Enos and the neighboring stars. After this is done the intricate mathematical cal- culations will be entered into. The~ will occupy many months, or perhaps a year or more, before anything like a definite result can be reached. Children's Friendship. From about the fifth or sixth yea~ children are apt to make firm f~iend- ships with their small contemporaries This should be a watchful imriod fo~ mothers, for these early ~friend~ips have a marked influence on the mind, morals and manners of a child. Nearly every character is moulded very large- ly by early companionship and sur- roundings. Every Inother should take care to be her clflldren-- 's companion as far as possible, for she may be quit~ sure that If they are left to the cam of servants they will at the best Only attain the ineal manners and customs of the nursery or servants' hall, which are not quite those of the cultured classes, says the Evening Star. Chtl. dren require the companionship of llt~ tle folks their own age, and a mother should be so much her children's friend .nAt she knows all their associates and is able to nip in the bud any acquaint- ance which she thinks undesirable. Th, mother who, to save herself fatigue, lets her children seek companions among their schoolmates and neigh, bore without troubling herself to find out whether their influence is likely to be good has only herself to blame l! the manners and morals of her cdT- spring are corrupted. Dickens' Love Lotter~ Charles Dickens' love letters exlst--a boxful of ~hem. So states ;t writer lr~ a London weekly: "I had thee pleasure of knowing Mrs. Dickens and had the privilege of receiving her at my house in my earliest London ~lays. Without ever for a moment hinting at their contents, she would smile in a half- fell on Denzil. He turned--the fever for a tlmo sank conquered~whlle his beautiful eyes lit up with passionate expectation and fond hope. Slowly and with hesitation Mildred advanced to the side of the bed, and then Lady Cal~ollne went over to the haggard face flushed crimson; he put up his uninjured hand and brushed back his hair impetuously, fixing his eyes on Mabel the while. "\ha~ caused l~?" he asked with surpressed agitation. "It must have been very sudden.
