James Allison, chief of the department
of manufacturers, has command of the
largest exposition ever erected, and the
manner in which he
has handled the ex
hibits in the depart
the witdom of his
appointment to the
nioet important di
vision of the fair.
Mr. Allison is of
Scotch descent. He
w as born at Frank
ford, Pa., in 1S43.
Until he was seven
teen years of age- his life was that of the
ordinary farm lad. At an early age he
developed a taste for mechanics, hut his
studies were interfered with by the out
break of the war. He enlisted as a
private and served with credit to him
self throughour the war.
Haleey C. Ivee. head of the art depart
ment of the world's fair, has aroused the
wrath of the gentlemen in charge of the
French art exhibit and A. A. Anderson,
of New York. In the French depart
ment is a picture painted by Anderson
entitled, "A Woman Taken in
Adultery." When Anderson ollered it
for exhibition in the United States art
department, it was relused. The reason
given was that it was immoral. Several
foreign countries at once offered Ander
son space for the picture, and he ac
cepted the courtesy of France. Today
Ives visited the French department and
caused a cloth to lie stretched before the
picture. The French gentlmen strongly
objected, and threaten to take the mat
ter into the courts and have Ives and
the crimson cloth enjoined.
Halsey C. ives, chief of the fine arts
department of the exjiosition, was liorn
in Havana, N. Y.f in IMS. His entire
life since arriving at manhood's estate
has been spent in the pursuit of art.
Mr. Ives was educated iu the public
schools of his native town, and received
tion at the Union
Academy of Havana.
He was compelled
to start life on his
own account at an
early age, and chose
art as s career. To
learn the technical!
ties of his profession,
in 1K62 he started a
draughtsman in the
Ill health caused him to abandon this.
Later he studied In New York, St. Ijuis
and Kurope. He was apjwinted chief of
the fine arts department, May 1st, 1801,
and through his efforts, the art exhibits
at the fair will be the greatest the pro
fession lias ever had.

About 0 o'clock last night, after passing
the evening at Camp Badger. Black and
Burns returned to Black's cabin, a short
distance away. Upon opening the door
they heard a noise in the rear of the
cabin. Black stepped back from the
door to ascertain the cause, when Evans
and Sontag, who were in hiding, im
mediately opened fire. Black fell, shot
through the thigh. Burns says the fir

fire-crackers. Black, as he fell, sung
out: "You dirty cuss, you are loo
cowardly to give a man a chance for hia
life." "urns, seeing Black fall, called
to him, and getting no reply concluded
he was dead and left for assistance.
Evans and Sontag meantime retreat d

then crawled into the cabin and secured
his Winchester rifle and fired two Bhots
at the retreating bandits. Burns re

A Woman burned to Death.
Kocklin, Cal., May 25. At 2:40 this
morning, fire started in the kitchen of

It burned 25 buildings, including two
thirds of the business section of the
town. The total loss is $75,000, insurance
about one-third. Mies Alice Irish, of
Georgetown, workingat the Davies hotel,
got out once, but went back for her
clothes, was caught in the flames and
burned to death. A heroic attempt was
made by William Davies and Will Laudis
to save her, but the building collapsed.
The other occupants of the hotel barely

This city was shaken to its circum
ference this morning by the announce
ment of the Foster assignment, as it
w as recognized this meant the downfall
of Bonie of Fostoria's most prominent
institutions. The assignment was made
to J. B. Gormley, president of the First
National bank of Bucyrus, of the bank

house of Davis & Foster and Charles Fos

Mambury Crock & Calcined Glass Co.,
the brass and iron works and the Fos

hands of an assignee before the close of
the day. Everything is in a chaotic
condition. The bank carried several
hundred thousand dollars in deposits,
and had negotiated loans for the brass
works and glass houses, giving its own

No Appeal Haa Been Made to the Inlted

Washington, May 2S. Dr. Guzman,
the Nicaragnan minister, has received
no official information that the Nica
raguans desire the United States to es
tablish a protectorate over the country,
as stated in a New York paper. Dr.
Guzman is of the opinion, however, that
such will be the ultimate issue under the
condition of affairs existing there. The
Nicaragtian canal project, he says, closely
connects the two countries, and its in
terests would be greatly enhanced if the
United States were given supremacy.
Private advices received here state that
the revolutionists have found that they
have undertaken a greater task than
they can manage since gaining the upper
hand and will be willing to relinquish
control, provided they are granted am

Robinson's article; in tho llomih tic Re
view presents in compact form a truth
that is becoiuinif more, and more evi
dent each day, and one tlint applies not
alone to the education of ministers:

ly possible to overestimate the valu.i of
a mustery of English in any calling1
that requires the use of it in inllu

preparing for the Christian ministry or
almost anything else whoso chief func

others to riffht action hy public ad

should yield precedence to the attain

success will no largely depend, tlu-y
are mainly left to acquire their knowl
edge in any haphazard way they can,
receiving' at most, at the very time
when most needing it. only such in
structions as may be gathered from
brief study of some college text-book
in rhetoric and from writing' a few
compositions, on which the professor
in rhetoric scratches in red ink scant
words of general criticism; anil so they
stumble on in their course, reaching
the theological seminary or law school
only when it is too late for the profes
sor (of homiletics) to do for them what
ought to have been done for them oil
the way along1 from the start, and what
no amount of instruction or personal
effort can then do for them. In no sin
gle respect are established methoili of
education so glaringly and so radically
defective as in rhetorical discipline.
For no one department of instruction
do colleges not one, but all of them
make so inadequate provision in the
number of teachers; in none are the
results of the instruction, on tho
whole, so unsatisfactory. In no grad
uates are these results more painfully
apparent than in the occupants of our
pulpits," and law chairs, and legislators,
and writers in all departments.
Bass' cheeks is the very latest gas

very high because it takes about a ton

cheeks. The cheek of a bass is a tiny
nugget of the teuderest and most deli
