A Ray ol Liglii
For woman's guidance is found in the
fact that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescript
tion cures female weakness and the dis
eases of the delicate womanly organs
which darken the lives of so many worn-,
en with suffering and sorrow. That ray
of light has penetrated many darkened
chambers where women moaned in mis
ery, and has guided them out to health
and happiness. Favorite Prescription "
is not a tonic, not a palliative, but a pos
itive cure for the diseases, which are
peculiar to women. It gives vigor and
vitality. It banishes nervousness, head
ache, and all the aches which come from
a diseased condition of the womanly
organs. A temperance medicine, it con
tains neither alcohol nor narcotics.
I was troubled for three years with ulceration
and female weakness and my doctor gave ms
but little relief," writes Mrs. Lulu Hunter, of.
Allentan, St. Louis Co., Mo. " I saw an adver
tisement in the paper of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. I began the use of it about a year
ago.-! took five bottles of it, and one bottle of
Golden Medical Discovery,' and my health is
better now than it was for years. I have also
recommended these medicines to some of my
friends, who suffered from female weakness,
and good results have followed."

DEAHi FOLDED HANDS.
Dear, folded hands, so worn with care,
So quiet on the p useless breast,
Will any burden need you there,
If Heaven is a place of rest?
And you, dear heart, will you forget
The struggles of these lower lands?
Or is there some sweet service yet
For folded hands?
Yours was the never-ending! task
Born of a never-ending need.
Our selnshness, it was, to ask.
Your sweet unselfishness to heed.
And now in the unwonted rest
Long promised in the better lands,
IIow can you sit an idle guest
With folded hands?
No tears to dry, no wounds to bind,
No 8uff erer to tend and bless -Where
will those eager fingers find
A need for all their tenderness?
Yet, knowing all they did before,
, Perchance the Father understands,
And holds some precious work in store
For folded hands. .

Walls and I'ecli 'flioronghly.
Make the silo deep, for the greater
the depth the greater will be the
pressure on that below, thus forcing
out air from the fodder. and Insuring
better silage. Shallow silos as a rule
give less satisfactory results than deep
ones, as there are larger air spaces in
i FILLING A SMALL ROUND SILO.
the silage owing to lack of pressure.
Wherever practicable the silo should
have a depth of not less than 24 feet,
while more satisfactory results may be
expected if it Is ten feet deeper.
Make the silo walls smooth. After
the silage Is placed in the pit It should
settle evenly and easily. If the walls
are perfectly vertical and smooth, the
conditions for settling will be favora
ble. Where stone is used, a coat of
water lime cement must be used to
make a good surface. As silage con
tains acid, this smooth surface will
gradually become eaten and rough, so
that from year to year, as seems nec
essary, a light wash of cement should
be brushed over the wall to make it
smooth. Where wood is used, the lin
ing " boards should be dressed on one
sldfe. The wall on the inside should
be perfectly plumb and smooth from
the top of the silo to the foundation
wall, from the top of which there may
be a slight bevel to the floor. In any
form of wooden silo, excepting the
round, It is desirable .that the inside
lining boards be nailed on vertically.
The silage will then slip down' easily.
Have as few corners as possible.
Upon the thoroughness of the packing
usually depends the character of the
preservation. Most of the waste which
occurs where silage has been well put
in occurs at the surface, against, the
doors, at the sides and in the corners.
Use gas tar on wooden silos, for
when applied hot It is considered the
best known preservative of wood avail
able for common use. Even put on
cold, If not too thick for rapid painting,
it is a superior. preservative. Tar may
also be thinned with gasoline without
the use of heat. As gasoline rapidly
evaporates into a gas which is very in
flammable much care should be used.
The illustrations, from publications
of the .Wisconsin station, give an idea
of the 'appearance and method of filling
a round silo and -explain in a measure
the process of constructing a silo of
this kind. Fig. 1 shows a method of
laying and leveling the foundation. A
is a center post with top level with top
of proposed wall. B B are straight edge
boards nailed to stakes driven in the
ground. C is a piece of straight edge
timber fixed to turn on a pin at A. B B
are all nailed level with top of post A.
Fig. 2 shows the construction. The
sills are 2 by 4 inches in two foot sec
tions, with the ends cut on the slant of
a radius of the silo circle. These should
be sawed out with much care. After
being bedded . in mortar they may" be
toenailed together. The plates are the
same, spiked to top of studs, which are
2 by 4 inches, a foot apart. Short

lengths of studs may be used lapped to
get the depth. Sixteens and fourteens
will give a silo 30 feet deep. Linings

natrly, Mrs. McKin ley's condition to
day permitted President McKinley to
attend the launching of the battleship
Ohio from the yards of the Union
Iron Works. To witness the launch
ing of this ship, named in honor of
his native State, was the real object
of the President's long trip across the
continent, and was the event which
has attracted to the Pacific coast the
Governors of three States, the . Ohio
congressional delegation, several
United States Senators, and many
other notable and distinguished peo
ple. Dramatic and picturesque as was
the sight of 14,000 tons of steel sliding
into the full breasted tide of San Fran
cisco bay it was not so splendid and
r a. il r
magmnceni as me '
Great Naval Pageant
which accompanied it nor as pro
foundly impressive as the greeting
extended to the President by the 4,000
employes of the ship yards.
When the President left the sick
room of his wife this morning, every
arrangement had been made to notify
him on the instant of any change for
the worse in her condition. The phy
sicians assured him there were no in
dications of a set-back, but at his re
quest telegraphic connections were
made at the wharf and at the ship
yard, and, save tor the time he was on
the water, he was not a minute away
from direct connection with the Scott
residence. He was driven to the wharf
in a closed carriage, escorted by a
Eoiad of mounted police. The cabinet
and other distinguished guests were
already aboard the transport tug
Sloan, which was to convey the party
to the Union Iron worns, two miles
up the bay, when he arrived.
A Triomphal Sail.
The President's flag, an eagle and
shield on a blue field, was flying from
the main mast and the Union Jack
was at the bow as he stepped smilingly
upon the gangway to the accompani
ment of the cheers of the thousands
who blackened the neighboring pier
heads. - Then began the sail over the
shining waters of the bay. It proved
to be a triumphal journey, the like of
which has not been witnessed in this
country since Admiral Dewey, upon
his return from the Philippines, sailed
up the Hudson on the Olympia.
Every craft in the harbor was decked
out in gayest attire, and the city in the
background was a perfect mound of
waving flags. Every wharf on the sea
front swarmed with people. Up near
thtj ship yards the
Grim War Ships.
of the Pacific squadron were swinging
at anchor with streams of signal flags
extending fore and aft off the peaks
from prow to taffrail. Near Goat
Island lay the transport Sheridan,
travel -stained from her long journey
across the Pacific. She had just arrived
from the Philippines, and still had on
board the Forty-second and Forty-
sixth United States volunteer infantry,
which she had brought home. The
President saw her at once and requested
that the course of the Slocum should
be changed to allow him to pass near
her. As the Slocum approached the
big transport there was a scene of
almost frenzied enthusiasm in the air.
The soldiers, all in their service uni
forms, rushed to the sides and rent the
air with cheer upon cheer at the sight
of the President of the United States
come to welcome them home.
This welcome from the soldiers was
only the beginning. As the Slocum
drew near, the line of steel clad thun
derers of the deep, with jackies lining
the rails, the marine guards drawn up
aft and officers in full uniform on the
bridges, a puff of smoke burst, like a
white balloon, from tbe port quarter
of the battleship Wisconsin, Admiral
Casey's flagship. Boom came the re
port. It was the first gun from the
ships, tbe first of twenty one. Each
of the warships, the big, savage battle
ship Iowa, the long, lean cruisers
Philadelphia and Adams, the little
torpedo boat Farragut and the revenue
cutter McCulloch, which was with
Dewey at Manila, turned loose their
secondary batteries as the Slocum
slowly passed by.
Beyond the warships the little tug
threaded her way through the holi
day fleet of steamers, yachts, tugs,
barges and every variety of water
craft jammed about the front of the
ship yard. Each was black with
cheering people, and there was hard
ly one of them which did not have a
saluting gun of some sort to add its
voice to the roar of welcome that
greeted the President from the dense
crowd of workmen gathered upon the
pier. Ashore, to the right, was a stand
covered with acres of people, and be
yond that a hill alive with them. Upon
the pier a broad aisle of white muslin
ran through the workmen packed on
either side. Up this path, arched over
with flags and banners, one of them
bearing the inscription, "The Oregon
'Has Made Her Record; Watch the
Ohio," the President and hia party
moved to a stand where a representa
tive of the 4,500 employes of the
Union Iron Works, in a neat speech,
in which he asked a heartfelt blessing
upon the head, of the President and
expressed tender sympathy for his
suffering wife, presented the Presi
dent, as a token of the esteem of the
workmen, with a gold plate, engraved
with a suitable inscription :
A platform had been built around
the prow of the big iron monster,
which lay in the very slip in which
the famous Oregon was built and
from which President Harrison launch
ed the monitor Monterey ten years
ago. Gathered on the platform were
the President and members of the
cabinet, Governor Nash, of Ohio, Miss
Deshler, his niece, who was to chris
ten the ship, Miss Barber. -who was to
act for Mrs. McKinley and many uni-
ormed omcers of the army and navy
Miss Barber and the President stood
before the electric appliance, which
controlled the guillotine that was to
sever the rope which would loose the
weight that was to knock out the last
beam. Miss Barber, with her finger
on the button, was looking intently at
the indicator. At -12:22 two and a
half minutes before the tide was at its
highest, the time set for the launching,
there suddenly shot into the face of
the indicator the word "ready." Miss
Barber pressed the button. The last
block Veil away. At the same time
Miss Desheler, a young lady of 17, in a
light gown, with her dark hair braided
aown her back in school girl fashion,

by a red, white and blue ribbon
and as . it crashed against the side
she uttered the words "I christen thee

ATTEMPT TO LYNCH
White Man Killed and Robbed at McCon-

Bv Telegraph to tbe Morning Star.
Connellsville, Pa., May 18.
Five thousand frantic white people
surrounded . the fragile little lockup
in the town hall here to night. Be
hind the cell bars tremble William
Fairfax and his wife, "Black El,"
both colored, and who had mst mur
dered William Moore, assistant yard-
master in the Baltimore and Ohio
vards here and a man well known in
Fayette and West Moreland railroad
eircles for many years. The tragedy
developed so quickly that it took the
breath from the townspeople. The
streets were crowded with the Satur
day night throngs. William Moore
and Baggage Master Johnston, of tbe
Fairmont branch train, walked down
Main street and turned in towards
the Hotel Ilaas, , on Water street,
through a rear' alley. Johnston
had left Moore, and the latter, be
fore he bad gone a moment, was
assaulted.suddenly by Fairfax and his
wife, who threw stones. Several peo
ple saw the woman dart forward, and
tbe black man also, each hurling the
missiles. Moore was struck with a
brick on the head and fell forward.
Quick as a flaBh Fairfax leaned down
over the prostrate victim, jerked his
watch from bis pocket, took bis money
from hisclothirig, and then with wan
ton brutality took the unconscious
body in his arms and burled it over a
stone wall, a distance of thirty feet.
Moore was not dead when hurled from
the stone wall, but the fall broke his
neck and he died instantly. In
a moment the town was afire. The
murder was right in the heart of it.
The woman continued to stone back
the crowd which pressed her. Fair
fax in tbe confusion fled. Police
man Charles Still wagon took the
woman and hustled her to the lockup.
In the meantime search began for
Fairfax. He ran up the rear stairs of
a vacant house and was there betrayed
by a woman who saw him secrete
himself. He was bustled up the dark
alley and before the crowd knew of it
he had been placed in the lockup next
The Jail Attacked.
In a few minutes afterwards the lock
up wassurrounded by ahowling mobof
infuriated men. In the midst of them
wre Wm. Moore's three sons, crying
and adding to the excitement and
the bitterness o the crowd. Inside
who me muraerers were a nanaiui ot
officers who blockaded the narrow
aisle leading from the outer door to
the cells. The men on the outside beat
this in. But the police remained firm
The crowd kept battering at the doors
entreating the officers to give up the
prisoners, and shouting "bring him
out to the rope." "Lynch hjm."
A few minutes before 10 o clock a
few ringleaders succeeded in getting
on the inside and opened fire with
revolvers at the negroes through the
cell doors. For several minutes this
fusilade continued. The officers shot
into the air to frighten the people.
Suddenly down the street came a
crowd of men bearing a telephone pole
which the crowd took and using it as a
battering ram began to knock down
the walls of the building. In- the
meantime Sheriff George A. Mc
Cormick, of Fayette county, had been
notified and with a large posse is being
rushed to Connellsville from Union
town on a freight, the intention being
to take the prisoners under escort to
the train and get them into the jail at
Battered Down the Walls.
By 11:30 o'clock the infuriated mob
had used the battering ram so effec
tively that the outer wall of the build
ing separating the hose carriage from
the aisle of the lock, broke through.
Soon a giant hole gaped. Exposed
and showing plainly . under the light
within stood the negro Fairfax: The
sight was maddening. The battering
ram bent and twisted the cell bars till
the negro stood exposed so that he
could have been dragged out. But the
officers, headed by County Detective
McBtth, stood before the man, thwart
ing the work of the ram, standing on
it ' with their feet to stop its work.
McBeth calmly informed the men at
the head of the ram, "if you break

He held his pistol in his hand. A
man appeared with a rope, swinging
tbe loop high over the heads of the
crowd, but none were brave enough to
face death at the hands of the officers.
Shortly after midnight William
Moore, the eldest son of the murdered
man mounted the steps in front of
the lockup and said : !
"For my mother's sake and for my
own sake I ask the mob to disperse. I
do not want the negro dragged out and
you should therefore not want him."
Father John Burns, pastor of the
Immaculate Conception church also
spoke to the crowd and asked them to
preserve the good name of the town

had finished. -

Albany, May 18 The great rail
road strike, lasting twelve days, re
quiring the presance of 3,000 mem
bers of the National Guard in the
city, costing the lives of two promi
nent citizens, and entailing an ex
pense to the county of Albany of
over $39,000, is amicably settled, and
if the agreements are kept there will
be no trouble for three years at east.
The ominous calm, which succetded
the killing of two inoffensive citizens
two days ago by national guardsmen
defending property, was succeeded
this afternoon and evening by hys
terical enthusiasm .when public bell
towers and city newspapers pro
claimed that the twelve days' strike
on the street railways of five cities
bad been settled. Flags flying from
public and private buildings, horses
and wagons decorated with bunting
and the national emblem, citizens car
rying small flags in their hacds and
enthusiastic youths and otherwise dig
nified citizens chasing after the cars,
marked some of tbe earlier scenes of
tbe afternoon. The repair wagon left
the traction company's barn with its
own old Union crew aboard and go
ing along the street received an ova
tion. It was decorated with flags aad
escorted by a jojful crowd very differ
ent from the angry mob that had fol
lowed the cars the last few days. To
night several of the lines are running
in this city and all of them in the
other cities, and by noon to-morrow
all the lines will be running'on sched
ule time with Union men.
As is usual both sides to the con
troversy claim the credit. From the
face of the agreement it is evident
that the striking men won these con
cessions: Increasing night men and
extra men's wages to twenty cents per
hour. Granting men the right of ap
peal from a decision of an inspector
or tbe superintendent to the traction
company's executive board. The road
to pay any employe for lost time when
suspended and found not guilty. Em
ployes permitted to ride on their own
divisions free by showing their badge.
No discrimination' against strikers
who have not committed violence.
General Oliver waited for some time
to have Sheriff McCreery notify him
that the strike was ended but finally

Now that the United States
has na nt.nrorl fh nnmGrOUS Steam
ersof the Leyland Steamship Line
and many more steamships are said
to be about to be added to -our mer
chant fleet, where is tne Ship Sub
sidy bill to come in? What need
have we to encourage people to "in
vest in seagoing steamers by giving
huge bounties out of the taxpayers'
pockets when we see them acquir
ing fleet's of 600,000 tons and over
without bounties? Senator Frye is
said to be refurbishing his Subsidy
bill for t! next session of Congress,
but recent events make his little
joker ridiculous. - Surely Mr. Mor
gan, the Steel Trust and Standard
Oil are rich enough to buy all the
ships they .need without, help.
