When a forelga nation guts rally hopping mad at th United State It jrella "Yankee" on tha aama principle. for tha JOGth time In tha pant year fiiwln haa again "padded" Cuta.

New York cannot longer poke fun at the filth of Chlcago'a great and only river. A working girl In a New York factory fall arom a fourth atory window and fell Into a pool of water and scaped Injury. Tha water acted aa an India rubber cushion. One. hundred and elsty-flve barrel of 40-year-old whlaky have been rerov ered from a Mlaaourl river at earner tunk Wore the war near f'arkvllle, Mo. If It should alao be 40-rod- whlaky we may lock for an Increase In the mortality causod by Mlaaourlani dying with their boota on. K Kanaaa man auea a eliieplng car company for the return of money paid for a berth In a sleeping car. The claim la that a man In an adjoining wrlh anored to loud that aleep wat an Impossibility for the Kanaaa man.

There la no doubt about the care. The doubt la about the eagles. No tear a need be abed at Kuls'a death In Cuba. Rul. U la true, bore the white flag, but he had been warned to atey away from tha Cuban camp. The killing of Ruls l not more cruel than the aasamlnatlon of Maceo, or the mur Her of hundreds of hospital patient .women and children, by tha Bpanlah. Hallways In Holland are so alow that but one person a year is killed by the railroads, of the entire country. Tbla one la presumed to be driven lnane by efforts to calculate how much soon r he could make his trip by wnlklng, and wboo o turn Its alow suicide by throwing himself In front of the en gloe. An organist played, "There's a Hut Time In the Old Town Tonight." with iich dramatic effect In the Auditorium In Chicago the other night that the organ caught flrrt and burned to the tune of $15,000 loaa. That follow should be hired by the Ohio rrpugllcan legisla ture to play "lllest Ue the Tie That Binds." And now "the powers" are proceeding to divide up China. China haa heretofore been supposed to be a fight. Ing nation, but the war with Japan proved otherwise. And now the big ouiues nave seen that there la no chance to get hurt and they will hold up the celestial kingdom Just aa soon aa they can agree on how to divide the "awag." The supreme court of Illinois unttKI a marriage knot In ten minutes that took'the notorious Delia Dins De Darr several weeks to tie. The spirits advised the marriage of a Qulnry widow worth $109,000, to a Chicago artist. Of course, tha money had nothing to do with the case, and of course, a large fee waa not paid Dlsa De Darr. the me ilium, for "fixing" the aplrlu. The "Unspeakable Turk" Is an "amooaln cuss" as Artemtis Ward would say.

They made their war down Fence river t tha Flniay branoh to what ia knuwn as Half Way river. There they met a party of men surveying for tbe Canadian Pa olflo railway and unwittingly helped to drive a spike la our great national highway, because they gave th.tr boat to tha survey mea to make taelr way np the fsaoe river. Harper and tbe nth' era packed their prorlsions np tba Half Way river and over a tS or HO mtla portage to tha waters of tba Nelson river, down whkh they want until they found It safe for tha iaage of caooct, where they made a cache and pna-eeded to make two dugouts with which to aeoead tha Nelson.

Cornel Lee and Sherman atresia, Dead wood. A FAVORITE CALENDAR. With the approach of a new year most people discover th need o a new calendar. This fact accounts for th great number of these artlclee that burden the malls at this time. Among them all the one which pleases us best Is that published by N. W. Ayer 4 Son, Newspaper and Magailne Advertising Agents, Philadelphia. The .1898 edition haa juat arrived and been put In commission. Perhaps Its chief attraction Is that the figure ar clear enough to be read across a room. It 1s, bow-ever, a most bsndsome specimen of tb printer' art, while rts business talk alwjys Interests buslne men. We are not surprised to I earn that the edition has doubled In recent years. Its price (35c) Includes delivery by mall to any address In perfect condition. WHERE TO KEEP WARM IN WINTER. Try a trip to tbe South.
