Lord Pauncefote, The British Am-
bassador, Is Dead.
WILL BE TAKEN TO ENGLAND.
W asliington, May 27.—As soon as it
became generally known that Lord
l'aunc^fote was dead, flags were half-
masted over the different embassies
and legations. At the Arlington hotel
where the visiting Frenchmen who
have come to witness the Rochambeau
statue unveiling ure stopping, the
1 reach flag w;is placed at half mast.
The oftive of dean of the diplomatic
eorps at Washington now devolves
upon [)r. Von llolleben, the German
ambassador, and upon him fell the
duty of directing the diplomatic body's
action on this occasion. The entire
diplomatic corps will attend the
funeral in n body. The late Lord
I'auneefote will have a state funeral.
Mr. Raikes, the secretary and charge
of the l'.ritish embassy called upon
Assistant Secretary Hill to advise with
him respecting the funeral arrange-
ments and finally these were entrusted
to Mr. Hill in their official features.
After the church services the remains
wi-'l be conveyed to Rock Creek ceme-
tery, escorted by a military procession,
the details of which have not yet been
arranged, and at the cemetery thev
will be placed in a temporary receiving
vault. At first it was suggested that
the remains be permanently interred
here, but the wishes of the family i>f
the deceased were otherwise and it is
tiie present, intention to have them
conveyed to England to the ancestral
home at Preston, when the Pauncefote
family returns t<> England. It will be
determined before that time whether
or not a Lniued States warship will ;
carry the remains to England.

authority that a new crater is forming
at Ajoupa Boullion, which lies on the
side of the mountain opposite to ot.
Pierre, with its northern face toward
the Atlantic. A huge fissue is said to
have opened there, which is vomiting \
gases and volcanic matter similar to
those thrown out from the crater at
The volcano is now throwing off
large quanties of ashes. These fell
upon boats which were coming to Fort
de France and prevented them from
approaching the shore nearer than ten
miles. Even at this distance the decks
were rapidly covered with ashes. The

Fernie, H. C., May 20.—A terrible
explosion occurred in No. 2 mine,
which is connected with No. 3 shaft
and also with the High Line shaft. All
three openings were blocked. One
hundred and fifty men were at work
at the time of the explosion.
Vancouver.—Reports from the dis-
aster at Fernie are being held back as
there is only one wire to handle mess-
ages and private dispatches are given
right of way.
The cause of the explosion is said to
be the presence of fire-damp, ignited
by a match with which a miner was
lighting a pipe in defiance of orders.
A tremendous explosion occurred in
No. 2 mine, followed in a few seconds
by another explosion in No. 3, con-

affected by the calamity and the entire
surviving population is in a state of
Latest advices are that the mine at
Fernie is found to be on fire and that
ventilation is being restored as quickly
as possible. All the bodies will soon

four made their escape.
l'ernie is a town in the eastern part
<4 the province of British Columbia on
the Crows Nest Pass branch of the
Canadian Pacific railroad. It lies iu
the center of a country very rich in
coal deposits. The veins extend east-
ward into the neighboring territory of
Alberta. The building of the railway
four years ago was followed by the
operation of the coal mines which be-
longed to a company composed largely
of Toronto capitalists. These are the
coal fields that J. .T. Hill was reported
to have gained control of a year or so
ago. Fernie's only industry is mining.
Its population is about 60,000. Most of
its population is foreign born.

London, May 28.—The news of the
death of Lord Pauncefote, the liritish
ambassador at Washington, was con-
vayed by a representative of the Asso-
ciated press to the British foreign office
and the United States embassy. The
officials were greatly shocked and ex-
pressed the deepest sympathy with the
widow and a realization of the loss
which both countries have sustained.
The foreign office representatives were
particularly affected as, apparently
they had no idea that the ambassa-
dors condition had been critical.

New York, May 28.—Suit has been
entered in the United States district
court by the countess of Buena Vista
against General Brooke, of the United
States army, for .Sr.0,000. The countess
alleges that General Brooke abrogated
rights, held by inheritance, to the
privileges of conducting the slaughter
house at Havana and to the distribu-
tion of meats and the collection of the
fixed charges for said meats. The
countess claimed these privileges by
virtue of a royal decree from the King
of Spain dated 1704.

I HONING A SHIRT WAIST.
Not infrequently a young ivomat.
finds it necessary to launder a shirt
waist at home for some emergency
when the laundryman or the home s ;r-
vant cannot do it. lleuce these direc-
tions for ironing the waist: To iron
summer shirt waists so that they will
look like new it is needful to hav«
them starched evenly with Defiance
Starch, then made perfectly smooth
and rolled tight in a damp cloth, to be
laid away two or three hours. When
ironing have a bowl of water .and a
clean piece of muslin beside the iron-
ing board. Have your iron hot, bin
not sufficiently so to scorch, and abso-
lutely clean. Begin by ironing the
back, then the front, sides and the
sleeves, followed by the neckband and
the cuffs. When wrinkles appear ap-
ply the damp cloth and remove them.
Always iron from the top of the waist
to the bottom. If there are plaits in
the front iron them downward, after
first raising each one with a blunt
knife, and with the edge of the iron
follow every line of stitching to give it
distinctness. After the shirt waist is
ironed it should be well aired by the
fire or in the sun before it is folded
and put away, says the Philadelphia
Gl-u« Hospital for I'onHmptlfM.
1 he glass hospital for consumptives
which is to be erected in Philadelphia
will be modeled in its general plan
after the one in London, which has
satisfactorily demonstrated the effec-
tiveness of sunshine in the treatment
of that fell disease. Each patient oc-
cupies a small room of glass, into
which air having an excess of oxygea
is pumped. This gives actual relief
to the sufferer and rapid lmproYtun^at
is made by selected case*.
