Senator Hearst's Dig Schemes la the Ji'cit.s
Senator Hearst is creating a bigger
sensation than anything he has ever
published in his newspaper. He is a
very rich man. It is estimated that
his income averages $7,000 a day. It
is said that he spent 1,000,000 in
placing tne Jixaminer on a paying
oasis, a sum only a little less than
nait ot nis income lor an entire year.
Recently rumors have been current in
New lorkof his intention of estab
lishing his son in tho newspaper busi
nes3 in that city.
The gossips say that he offered Ben
nett 55,000,000 for the Herald and
that Bennett laughed at tho offer.
which surprised Senator Hearst some
what, for the sura offered was about
equal to two years' income. He is
reported to have said that he would
have made an offer .to Dana for the
Sun, but he heard that the veteran
was getting so much fun out of his
paper that he wouldn't sell foran-v
amount It is probable that so far as
a .New lork newspaper is concerned,
Senator Hearst will have to establish
one on his own hook.
It may require three or four vears'
income at the rate of $7,000 a day, but
if ho undertakes the enterprise it will
certainly be a howling success. There
is always an opportunity in Kew York
for a man with sufficient income to
start a daily paper, and if lie can stand
the drain for a few years ho will prob
ably succeed in drawing down hand
some interest on hi3 investment.
The latest rumors concerning Sen
ator Hearst's financial adventures
grow out of his purchase of tho Nu
cleus buildiug, on tho corner of Mar
ket and Third streets, in San Fran
cisco, for which he is said to have paid
S1,80U,000, only 75,000 less than his
yearly income. It is said that he finds
the Nucleus property altogetherinade

He is now negotiating for the pur

m these transactions. On the site of
this property he will erect a building

large that the time o' night can be
discerned in Oakland when the weath

Before such enterprises backedr by
such inexhaustible wealth the imagin
ation of a Dumas might stand ap

CASHED OUT HIS VOW
Anotier Member of me SnicMiA
Tales His Life.
WAS ELECTED TO HIS DEATH.
In Killing Himself, the Victim Simply
Carried Out a Pledge He
Made to the Club.
Special by Tho UTEn Tress.
Bridgeport, Conn. Oct 19.
Another member of. the Suicide club
has carried out tho edict of that so
ciety. This time it is Emil Ziemske who
ended H3 life, by taking iodide of pot
ash. Ziemske came from Ansonia,
and joined the club only nine months
ago, when it was without any mem
bers other than its president and sec
retary. Early last spring "Wm. F. Many, a
United States letter carrier, killed
himself. "Wendel Baum shot himself
and Joseph Kopp followed by hang
ing himself. All were members of the
suicide club. These last three rolled
up the number of suicides to nearly a
score and reduced the membership
to the president and secretary, who
are exempt from self destruction.
Ziemske, with three others, was then
pledged to the secret order. A ballot
resulted in ordering Ziemske to de
stroy Himself before thenext meeting,
Saturday night, October 18, and
Ziemske has fufilled his vow.
Ministers declare that in nine cases
out of ten brides are much, more self
possessed than are bridegrooms when
the marriage ceremoney is being per
formed. A shy, modest-looking little creature
robed in white will stand perfectly
erect, looking tho minister calmly and
squarely in the eye, without for an in
stant losing her self-poise, while the
big, blunt six-footer of a bridegroom
by her side is pale, nervous and tremb
ling. His fingers are likely to twitch
nervously, and ho may even hitch at
his trouser legs or twist a corner of his
I was once "best man" to a stalwart
middle-aged bridegroom, noted for
his courage aud feats of daring, and
when tho time came for us to go down
stairs to meet the bride and her at
tendants he nearly had a fit, and he
looked like a walking corpse all
through the ceremony. I had to keep
saying, "Brcoe up, old boy," and
"Come, come, you've got to go down,"
to get him started at all, and at the
do- - he was idiotic enough to clutch
at me and say:
"Say, Fred, how would it do to have '
Mary and the preacher slip in here
and have it all over with bafore wo "go
down at all? I can't go through with
it before all that crowd."
"Idiot!" I said, briefly and point
edly enough to leave no doubt as to
my meaning. "Mary won't come in
here and you will go down this in
stant!"' He got through it a; last without
doing or saying anything ridiculous,
in which respect he was luckier than
another stalwart bridegroom ot my
acquaintance, who was so dazed and
overcome that he held out one of his
own fingers for the ring when the
minister said: "With this ling I thee
Another bridegroom I knew lost his
head to such a degree that when it
came time for him to say: "I, Horace,
take thee, Annie, to be my lawful
wedded wife," he said in an unnatur
ally loud tene: "I, Mary, take thee,
Horace, to be my lawful wedded wife?'
and when the time came for him to
introduce his bride to some of his
friends who had not yet seen her, he
did it by saying awkwardly: "Hh, er
Miss Carter, this is my wife, Miss
Barton," calling her by her maiden
Few men say "my wife" easily and
naturally the first time they use the
words in public.
A funny case was that of the badly
rattled bridegroom who stared blankly
at the minister until asked it he took
"this woman to be his lawful, wedded
wife,"- when he started suddenly and
hastily and in the blandest manner
"Ah, beg pardon were you speak
ing to me?"
A village preacher says that he once
married a rural couple at the house of
tho bride's parents in, the presence of
a large company of invited guests.
The bridegroom was a bigt bony, red
faced young fellow, who looked as
though he could have felled an ox
with his fist; but he shivered and
turned pale at the beginning of the
ceremony, and at its close fell down in
a dead faint, to tho manifest annoy
ance of his bride, who had been as
"cool as a cucumber" throughout the
whole ceremony. Detroit Free Press.
