TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT POISON, JUROR "BEATS IT' DOWN RAINSPOUT DELAYS MURDER TRIAL " Kansas City, Mo., Dec 11. Waldron, juror in the second trial of Dr. B. Clarke Hyde, for murder, clogged the wheels of justice and indefinitely postponed the trial today, by one of the strangest actions on record in-the crifh? inal court. He wasn't taken suddenly ill. He didn't die. Waldron, according to other jurors in the cas?, merely became tired of the testimony of expert poison witnesses, raised a 'window in the room where the jurors were confined early today, climbed down a rainspout and beat it into the wide, wide world. Waldron says his fellows jurors made a speech "before his depart-, ure, saying he had heard so much about poison that he was beginning to mix it in his talk. Hetold thepi he had busines sto at-7 tend to, and was going to do it b'gosh, guards or no guards. Here is a part of his "forewell address :" "I am a busy man ; got work to do.

I can't say that I regard wash rday as the bright sp.ot in the -week, but after probing its terrors to the bot'tom, I prefer to rub out while you are hunting up a washwoman, - There is just one secret about washing soak, everything but colored clothes over night in suds. :4 :' ''w r a wash, if I have the hour and a half to spare, than to have the house turned upside down by a 25 -cent -an -hour washwoman.

After it cools stirthe mess up with a stick a few times, and in the morning you can rub these clothes out in another tub of water and get rid of them about as' fast as you can handle them. You can shake washing powder ovsr the clothes when you put them to soak and put on your water, only washing powders sometimes hurt fine clothes, and occasionally takeoff the hide. CloYhes soaked twelve hours or more in suds clean easily. They do not need boiling, and generally a single rubbing is enough-. After you have rubbed them out, rinse them in warm water, and any that appear to need more rubbing can be quickly finished. Finish the white clothes in a tub bf lukewarm water that has a shake or two of bluing mixed in it, -wring out, hang out, and let the sun do the rest. Colored clothes can be washed in the suds left from the white clothes' first washing, and rinsed through one tub of warm water. If there's a baby in the house, and some da...

GEORGIA'S NEW SENATOR ,$ HEADACHES By W. C. Cotton, M.-D. Is ' "feC? yj Hoke Smith. , This picture shows Hoke Smith, lately governor of Georgia, now senator from that state. He was in Grover Cleveland's cabinet. If congress continues till after the national convention, what a lot of re-making of laws the U. S. supreme court will haye on hand! Generally speaking a headache is a sort of a stomache-ache. That v is to" say, it is merely a symptom77 of trouble, not in the head, but in0" the abdomen. More than twothirds of all headaches are due tou some trouble in the stomach or ' bowels. Some of these are due to constipation, some to over-eating, some to alcohol very many some to nervous' derangement of the stomach. , , Faulty vision is also a factor. The only cure for them is that which cures the-tmginal trouble. Don't take headache 'powders. Take, rather, something- to relieve your digestive tract, and eat less or dririk less. For the headache merely signfies that you have been poisone...

NEWS ABOUT CHICAGO NEWSPAPERS The birth of a daily newspaper is as interesting a proceedure and as fascinating a story as the birth and life history of most public characters. Newspapers are like individuals some really don't know their origin; some want to forget it ; while othdrs live to know their parents and earn the blessings of a well served public; and still others, thoughborn in honesty, become so depraved through vicious associations, that redemption seems homeless and former 'friends pray for the speedy ending of a debased career. In the year 1900 Chicago was electrified by the hews that W. R. Hearst, after long casting of covetous glances at the Chicago newspaper field, had at last decided to break the ice and take a plunge. William came; and 'as 'first proof of his honesty of purpose, sought a five year blanket agreement with , the compositors, pressmens', .stereotypers'; photo engravers'and mailers' unions of Chicago; in, which document Hearst, generously agreed to resp...

association or hostile combination was provided for in the following language: "It is understood that with the above exceptions, (relating solely to change in hours, wage and pvertime increase), the original , contract dated May 24, 1900, shall be in force until June 24, 1910." William Randolph Hearst has, by the Hearst publications at least, been ever eulogized as an exceptionally honorable man and a friend of labor, particularly organized labor. But when Andrew M. Lawrence, now the head of Hearst's Chicapo papers, and his avowed political agent, in 1909, deliberately violated the agreement above referred to, long before its expiration, by joining forces with the Chicago Publishers association, a combination hostile to the printing trades unions, did Hearst stop him? Not so you could notice it. Andy Lawrence, when charged with bad faith, tried to shift the responsibility for his act of perfidy upon the shoulders of Web Pressmen's union No. 7, intimating that the strenuous methods r...

The State street department stores, which wisely supplied paid advertising to fill the space -formerly dedicated to labor and spasmodic exposures of alleged child slavery by these same deV partment stores, got their money's worth in press silence; and unintentionally did organized labor aireal service? Hearst's first set-to with organized labor was "due to the He'arst Home stake mines at Lead, South Dakota; declaring a lockout and ratting the mine.

This has been reported. , EFFECT OF' McNAMARA r CASE ON L'ABOR By Max Hayes. Because of the criminal conduct of the McNamara brothers and alleged confederates, many of the large daily newspapers dominated by trust influences are declaring that organized labor has been delivered a blow from which it will take years to recover, and not a few union officials have ven tured the same opinions. In the first instance the wish fathers the thought, and in, the second instance it is purely a case of stage fright and ignorance of the true mission of organized la,bor.
