a n. u FisM:"h°T"> C«t.ITB7iin> BY OCTOBER 3, 1S1». PriT-ivrN for 1o rvro ?! ill no' k-l in hnom. Tho greatest pr\s well in the world has be?n Ftnick in Ohio. This is what rais'nt have be^n<l. That is a noble bronze monaiucnt of Urrxiit wincli I ins brc-n unveiled lit Loav- enworth. Hen. Grant cun got a monument eTerywhere but in Now York city, vtrhcre he is buried.' Sir .Edwin Arnold. The gifted anil scholarly author of tho "Ufdhtof Asia" nnd other exquisite gems of literature drservos a right hospitable welcome in America. Tha perpetual •wonder, even to Americans who aro in the habit of getting through a large amownt of work, ia liow ho has found time from hia arduous newspaper duties to accomplish eo much that will be lasting In literature. He is editor of Tha London Daily Telegraph, and haa been for years. Ho Is warmly Into.rcated In America. His lamented wife, for whom he is at present in mourning, was an American, Whatever ho has to say of us is worth bearing. On Canadian annexation he remarks that ths Dominion has her fate in her own hands: "She is equally welcome to go or stay.* 1 A* an active Journalist, obllRed to keep myself Informed of main currents and forces, 1 feel sure that the freo choice and action of Canada will not In ths least bo icterfBred with from this side of tha boundary Here is something which will give gen- tdne pleasure to all true sons and daughters of our republic: As an old lusd very busy journalist 1 realize ths advantage of coming at things at first hand when I can. 1 greatly like the simplicity with which your matters of staU) are conducted, judging from my experience at the White House, and 1 do not pereelTo any IOSB of dignity from your rejection of » fatiguing ceremonlouvneas. 1 certainly brought away a sincere respect for tho head of TOUT government. Edwin Arnold has, if possible, more readers and admirers in America than at home. His careful studies of tho poetic aide of Oriental religions, and the refined yet powerful verse in which he has given us tlw results of his investigations, are familiar in our homes and hearts. Un. doubtedly the "Light of Asia" has had a rtrong influence on the religious thought of the time. . Its pure and gentle yet thoroughly robust philosophy is grateful alike to heretic and orthodox believer. Ona of the most remarkable of Sir Edwin's productions is the poem--"Ho and She," perhaps \aaa known than aom« others. A husband kneels alone beside his dead wife and entreats her to reveal to him the greatest surprise of all that death holds for mortals. He listens, saying: I bold tha breath of my soul to hear Tha answer comes at last, "with the uwoet soft voice in the dear old way:" The utmost wonder is this—I hear And see you, and lovoyou, and kiss you, dear; And am your angel, who was your bride, And know that, though dead, I hava never died. Our navy has now two cruisers that can make over twenty kno'3 r\n hour in speed. They are- tho Vesuvius and IMO new Baltimore. Each travels as fast as the average American "accommodation" railway train. Col. W. F. Cody and his great Wild West show will leave a permanent trace in Paris. Rosa Bonhcur has been industriously making studies from his Indians and elk and buffalo for future great animal paintings. Tho inconvenience to which the public was subjected by the great strike in London will have tho effect of making, the city itself buy and run the docks. It was almost as if a gas or water company's employes should strike tvnd leave a city in darkness or without water. And now they say that we, the people of the United States, own the fastest man-of-war afloat in the gallant new cruiser Baltimore. Under not particularly favorable conditions she made 20.2 knots an hour on her trial trip out to «en from tho Cramp shipyards at Phila- ielpliia. Well, we have tho Baltimore and the Vesuvius anyhow. U'lft th" p'7« of it-s factory at Morrison. — A t^losrrnm from Dr. () ,1. Bower*, of Chicago, says: "Announce iho funeral of Frank i'owera Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock at 4th sirept M. E. church." No further particulars have been learned. —Mr. and M.rfl. I". v;<"-"', ?f. (J"' f . : ro'.clu tiled tlifir silver wedding last Saturday. A largo number of their friends from dial-ant points were present, and a number of valuable gifts were received by them. —Messrs. C. Burgess and Atnoa Daveler went up to Genessea Grove on a squirrel hunting trip. They took with them a foil equipment for a good trip. They had lots of fun and got half a dozen fox squirrels. It is told on Mr. Burgesa that he got lost in the timber at his old home In Genesaee, but finally found his way out. —A Sunday school convention will be held next Sunday at 10:30 a. m. and 2:00 p. m., at the Leon church, southeast of Prophetstown. N. G. VanSant W. W. Davis, H. K. Hostetter and 3. 1" Overholverser from Sterling, and Geo. W. Olmstead, of Prophetatown, are on the programme for a dunday school talk. —The Ffeinkie Jonea Co. arrived on tUe 1:13 train from Sycamore, and will appear at the Academy of Music tonight in the sensational melo-drama "Disowned." This play was written expressly for Master Jones and abounds in startling situations and beautiful scenic effects. Our exchanges in 'Elgin. Rockford, Joliet and Aurora, speak in high praise of the Frankie Jones Co., and they will no doubt please a large house at the Academy tonight. -i l >ct. n i « 11 n n TI •• r 4 ; I'iiUiiVli ] t B.

A curious and interesting olil country la Meilco. She is a little slow. When an earthquake shakes tho republic up at 8 o'clock In the afternoon it is not reported in the morning newspapers till the second day after. The morning papers for nest day were printed at 2 o'clock of that day ri an hour before the earthquaka came oft. In the United States the lust editions of the evening journals would have had all the news from all parta of tho continent. Nevertheless Mexico is going to be one of the greatest of markets for American surplus products. Railroads and internal Improvements nru marching on with dizzy speed; for Mexico. Vast quantities of Texas beef are shipped thither, and tho trade is growing rapidly. Our •later North American republic, in fact, wants n largo share of almost everything we have to spare. She will furnish a vast, grand outlet for the surplus which begins to glut our home markets heavily. l«t the United States this winter make a liberal reciprocity treaty with Mexico. A very interest ing point has come up in Wyoming. In this territory women vote ul all elections. Contrary to the popular supposition that tho sex do not want to vote, the Wyoming ladies do vote enthusiastically, and early and often. A convention met in Cheyenne not long since to prepare a etate constitution. This-winter Wyoming, with a constitution all ready for etatchoodrwill ask cpngress to admit her to the Union. But the interesting point is this:,It is said a majority of the men of the territory are opposed to woman suffrage. If, however, they put a clause in tho new constitution restricting suffrage to male citizcnr,, the .women., will be a unit agiiinfit tho adoption of the constitution, and will overthrow it. So that if Wyoming comes into tho Union it must come with woman suffrage, us matters stand now. Business Prophecies. Samuel Benner, an Ohio farmer, many years ago wrote a curious book called '•Benner's Prophecies." It referred to good and bad business years, and was based on the principle that events of all kinds follow each other in cycles. There were regular periods of advance and depression in prices. Benner's book contained tables showing tho periods of rise and fall in the prices of corn, cotton, pork, iron, etc., with indications for the future. The number of times the prophecies hit tho mark was noticeable. Mr. Benner still survives and has published a now edition of his book. He says that 188D and 1890 will be booming years, years of great speculative and business activity, followed in 1891 by n panic. Theirdepression will sot in again and last from 1893 to 1807, the century to close with a tremendous trade boom, and go out in glory.

One, the Philadelphia, is the vessel recently __launched at Philadehphia L The third, the San Francisco, is building at the navy yard at San Francisco. These three Teasels are built for speed, und must make not less than nineteen knots an hour. They are designed to chase and capture the merchant vessels of a power with which the United States might be at war. It is a pretty fight that is now on in Canada between the divorce and anti- divorce factions. There is practically almost no divorce in the Dominion, and a'Uirga and influential party are making agitation to secure a divorce court. Those advocating it are of British blood and are Protestants. Opposed to them nolidly are the Roman Catholic French > Canadians, of whom there are a number among the highest law officials. It will be interesting to see which sida wins. Minneapolis says the real estate bubble 111 Kansas City is (intended to the last degree of thinness; that the whole town la mink beneath the weight of eastern mortgages, and that it is full of empty storehouses and dwellings. Kansas City yetorts that for every empty house covered by an eastern mortgage in Kansas City, there is one to match it and more, too, in Minneapolis. .

A teacher writes to The Philadelphia Times asking, apparently in some surprise, whether a teacher is expected to teach pupils manners. Judging from the manners of school children in the streets and elsewhere the question is not hard to answer. Tho Times says do- cidedly—yes, and proceeds to tell why: If tho object of a school education bo to fit chfl dren for useful nnd successful lives when they become men and women, wo can think of no part of their Instruction upon which more stress should be laid than upon that which relates to deport- meet. When thcro are a dozen applicants for a poslUos in a business house, tho best mannered boy or youth of tho lot U Invariably selected. Well mannered boys rarely remain long In the messenger service in our cities, for the reason that business meu offer tbem better positions and •ecure their Bervlci;s_Jho best mannered salesmen and saleswomen Roll the inrot goods, and are In greatest demand. QooU mannered men make their way In politics, In tho professions. In business life and In society to a far greater degree than the boorish and uncouth, though the latter may be equally diligent and quite as competent in all respects save that of deportment Then The Times proceeds to remark, very justly, that the behavior of many school children in public would lead an ordinary observer to the conclusion that good breeding was a lost art. In tha old fashioned school days It was not uncommon for the teacher to set apart Friday afternoon for teaching deportment, "manners," as it was called. Children were at least taught there how to address their elders properly, and how to enter a room and make a bow. If wo are ever to have decently ^mannered children among the masses we must come back to the old custom in some shape.- It is a teacher's place to instruct children in politeness, to teach them to be gentle and courteous and thoughtful of others. • For good manners are a part of good morals. It is really far more important that our children should be polite, honeat and kindly than that they should know what a participial adjective in. If we can't have both let us have the politeness and lot the technical grammar go. At least, any teacher alive has time to instruct her pupils that the cardinal •principle of poliu-m'sa is thu gulden rule. 1IOCH. FAM,«. -t-Mrs. A. J.
