^fc __ jm (its. i T>wi,rvTrRBa B Pa* Tear — Sslt;r. s\Tunr<A.Y. ^KIT-EMBER '•'.*. Rrsmiiel Siitlivan Cos. One of I'K* moat voro.itilo men b!a country lia-i j.roih:v-<"l w.ns Congressman S. S. Cox Ho did so many things admirably OHO cannot any what he did best In congress ho wna bent known a3 a humorist. For years ho was tte vrit of tho national house, Hi3 reputation in this respect interfered n-ith his ambition to be speaker of the house, and in other directions, as he himself used to say rather sadly at times. It was hardly thought that so funny a man could fill a high and serious office with dignity. And vet Mr. Cox had a fine dignity of his own. As an orator, on grave and important questions, heftould be earnest and forceful enough/ when occasion demanded. His ihetoric was so brilliant, his knowledge so wide and his manner BO irresistible that he was much sought after as a lecturer. At the very hour he died he would, if in health, have been speaking to an audience from the platform. The four new states lo come into the Union this fall owe Mr. Cox an especial debt of gratitude. It was his vote and his exertion in congress last winter that 'passed the bill for their admission. He had just returned from a trip to these young states when he was seized with hia last illness. He it was, too, who was the founder of the government life saving service. Yet. after all, perhaps it was as the litterateur that he was at his beat. Those who have read his "Arctic Sunbeams," "Orient Sunbeams" and "Why We Laugh" cannot help regretting that politics ever took any of his time away from literature. But since 1855, thirty- fonr years, he has only been out of congress five years. Strange indeed the .house of representatives will seem with~ out the presence of this gentle, genial, childlike,.merry souL The prayers and regrets of a thousand friends go with him aa far as they can penetrate on the - tinknvwM journey whore every man ~ luuflt travsjl alone, •..-.. " "THE BEST IS THE CHEAPEST." M ANY persons are under the impression th'at Ivory Soap is expensive, and intended for the use of the wealthy only. The fact is, the price is lower than for ordinary soaps, quality considered, for in the ."Ivory " no "chcapeners " or "makeweights " are used, so the buyer gets all "true soap" for her money. Its harmlessness, durability and efficiency admit of its being used for all purposes with equal satisfaction and economy in the families of the rich or poor. ' A WORD OF WARNING. There are many white soaps, each represented to be " just as good as the'Ivory';" they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it. *"> Copyright, 188S. by Procter & Gamble. B. PRIESMY« Co's SILK WARP HENRIETTAS , "Varnished Board," Every 5 yards marked B. Priestley & Co.

Nothing in the annals of modem crime Is at once so mysterious and BO f^pndish as the series of murders that have been committed in the slum Whitechapel district of London. In oil there have now been found twelve bodies of murdered •women and there is no clew to the slayer. Nine of the twelve bodies were found in Whitechapel. The women belong to the lowest outcast clasa To one of the corpses a note waa pianed saying that the murderer would desist when he had killed fifteen women. Of the ghastly twelve bodies eight were disemboweled and mutilated in n " peculiar manner, all the same way. The unknown person who committed these crimes is nicknamed Jack the Ripper. The four other dead women found in Whitechapel were killed by another hand, it is believed, since they were mutilated ^n a different manner, the heads and limbs being cut off and only the trunk left. It is simply inexplicable that in one of the most thickly populated districts of London, lighted all night and patrolled by police, with a detective force supposed to be equal to any in the world, the heads of four murdered women could be»cut off and carried away and successfully concealed. The whole case reminds one of Foe's Btory of the mysterious Paris murders. The Whitechapel killings began April 8,1888, and have been shocking civilization at intervals ever since. One supposition is that the original "ripper" is a ferocious lunatic with some fancied grudge at the unfortunate clasa of women named. But his work is too systematic and long continued for that. A horrible circumstance attending this series of crimes Ss that other wretches the world over read of it and attempt to imitate it There seems a contagion about it Dr. Chauncey M. Depew has come back disgusted with the exhibit of the TJnited States at Paris. Even poor old Mexico beats us. Every citizen of our republic comes away from the show amazed alike at the richness of the display of other nations and the poverty of our own. It is absolutely essential, he •ays, to our standing in the markets of the world that wo hold in 1892 an expo- eitioa tliat will show oil to the full our grandeur in agriculture, minerals and manufactures. AXUyr careful consideration, the University of Michigan has abandoned all competitive prizes and honors. The system of rivalry among students is productive of- mcge harm than good;-they is»y. Science, oratory and literature should be studied for love of them, and not for reward, which is held out as an incentive, "like a bundle of oata before an ass' nose." The only company of puro colored tragedians in the world will storm this country during the coming season. They Btort from Philadelphia and will call themselves the Standard Dramatic company, "Othello" will, of course, be the favorite play of them heavy tragedians.

The sum to be appropriated is said to be from 875,000 to $100,000. —The Board of Education of Sterling school met this morning and appointed Constables Howard and Haberer as truant officers. The new school law requires that all boards of educa- cation or of directors shall appoint one or more truant officers, whose duty it shall be to see that all children between the ages of 7 and 14 years attend school at least 16 weeks each year, and not less than eight weeks in succession, and during the flrat part of the school year. — There are to be several changes of offices en Locust street during the first week of October.
