Annual 8al«« over«,OOO«OOO Bcx*.v •ILLS AMERICAN beef has advanced a penny a pound in England. It appears that* the Englishmen for the first time became apprised of the fact that they are consuming American beefsteak, IT seems strange, even in time of war, that a tax cannot be levied on the incomes of the superfluously rich. Our war expenses are now one million dollars per day. The common people, the producers and consumers of the nation, pay without a murmur nearly the whole "of this vast sum. There is hardly another nation on earth that does not tax the incomes of the rich. "EUROPEAN nations are having their eyes open on the subject of American patriotism," says the St. Louis Republic. "The blue and the gray march shoulder to shoulder and the rich and the poor meet on a common level. Among Roosevelt's Tough riders' may be found the sons of federal and confederate soldiers, and the sons of millionaires of the east ride aide by side with the cow- looy of the western plains. The solution to the mystery is that we are a nation of patriots, and that love of country is common to all sections and classes." THE war with Spain has already benefited the farmer very materially. It has increased the demand for all kinds of meat products with a corresponding increase in prices. The same IE true as to nearly all kinds of staple farm products. It is a happy relief to the farmers, because for the past five years they have been barely able to make ends meet. If good crops are harvested this year and present prices prevail, the farmers will prosper. In this section of the country crop prospects are most encouraging.

They were side-tracked at their barracks' switch and reached the parit this General Scott's Capture of Mexico. "The soldiers of this genera tion," says the . Chicago Chronicle, "should obtain a military education from a study of American war history. Cuba, with its capital, snould be captured as Mexico, with Its principal fortress and capital city, was captured in 1847. In the spring of that year—after the war with Mexico had been in progress a few months, with distinguished victories under General Zichary Taylor on the Rio Grande—General Winfield Soott was assigned to the command of an army of invasion to enter Mexico at Vera Cruz "General Scott started from New Orleans with some regulars and a large body of volunteers from the various states. Other troops met him at Lobos island and he had an army all told of 12,000. men. He was there joined by Commodore D. D, Porter—later a naval hero of ' our civil war—and they started for Vera Cruz. That port was defended by a Mexican army and by the castle of San Juan d'Ulloa, situated on an island in front of the city. Compared with the arms and methods of ittack of today, this fort was as strong as Morro Castle is today, "General Scott landed ais army May 9th on the island and Invested the fort. It lequired thirteen days to remove a number of mortar guns from the fleet and to get them in position. May 22d the mortars opened on the castle and in four days fired 7.000 projectiles at its walls and into its interior. May 26th the castle surrendered and three days afterwarc the garrison of 15,000 men—almost one-half as numerous as Genera Scott's entire army—marched out and grounded arms before the gate of the fortress. The same day the city surrendered, "Ten days afterward General Scott with his army of invasion com menced his march toward the Mexi can capital. He fought battle afte battle, thirteen battles in all, with Santa Ana—who had a greatly su perior force, at least double that o the invaders—and Aug. 7 he eap tured the works at the edge of th City of Mexico A worthless truci of a month was granted, and at th end of that time he planted the stars and stripes on the parapets of the halls of the Montezumas. The distance from Vera Cruz to Mexico was over 200 miles, over mountains and through canyons—a route vastly more difficult thin my to be found in We Are Hus-tlers. Tie editor of The Century mentions rather disapprovingly the everlasting aurry and action of all phases of American life. Society in our large cities is one gallop the season through, without breathing space for anybody who is unfortunate to be caught in its whirl. The spirit of our national life is that of one •who is hurrying to catch a train, whether we are engaged in business or pleasure. The Oectury is not altogether right in deprecating this spirit of hustle. Ws have not much time for repose, bnt do •we need it? Our climate, our bright electric atmosphere, is developing anew race. The American can do in one day •what it takes old world people two and sometimes three to accomplish. We think quickly; we act quickly. What other nation on the face of the earth without any standing army could have got ready for war so rapidly as we did? Nevertheless The Century is quite correct in calling attention to the real home life that exists in many American families in an inner circle, beyond the wear and tear and blare of the "American fortissimo:" Life in our villages isprobably richer, health- <er and more inttresting than it was a generation ago, mid ft reaction from this living in he street, us it were, toward the simpler joys £ homo is smVto come. Moreover, in the icart of every great ciiy there are men and vomen who by sheer force of character are ealiziug an Weul of repose, holding their Iiresholds against the engulfing storms of the >uter world. The sensational newspaper comes lot near them, and the society reporter does not wait, at tbe door for the names of their dinner guests. They bear a share in the good vorks of the day, but they do it only by withdrawing from iho senseless demands of a fasn- onable life. And ihey are all the better prepared for public and family duties by rigidly • uarding for themselves a little domain ol eisure. It is in such secluded hours, rescued from the clash of the world, that life grows deep and irtrong, in moments cf meditation or in communion with loyal friends, good litera- aire and inspiring music. XESETY-TWO THOUSAND Sow Mustered in to the Volunteer Army— from the Stato Camps. "Washington, May IS.—The volunteer army is rapidly nearins completion. Reports received by Adjutant General Corbin last night show that 92.5SO rneu have been mustered in. Eighteen states have completed their quotas, as follows: California, Georgia, Idaho. Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont. Washington,' West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming- Milwaukee, May IS.—Colonel Samuel P. Schadel, commanding the First regiment of Wisconsin infantry, the only regiment now at Camp Harvey, received telegraphic orders yesterday afternoon from Washington to move his iruops to Tampa, Fla., immmediately. Colonel Schadel is to report to the commanding general of the department at Chicago when he is ready to depart. Adjutant General Corbin announced yesterday that it Was definitely settled that the Milwaukee light battery could not be taken into service under this call. He is confident, however, that his splendid battery will yet have an opportunity to show its skill in gunnery In the war against Spain. Island Lake, Mich., May 18.—Colonel McGurrhV commanding the Thirty- eecond Michigan volunteer infantry, has received orders to proceed with his regiment to Tampa as soon as the cars are ready. Marquette. Mich., May IS.—Marquette raised half th» company of upper peninsula volunteers which have been mustered into service, and the boys left for Island Ls.ke at 1 o'clock last evening. The biggest demonstration in the history of the city was held here yesterday morning. Springfield, Ills., May IS.—The Second infantry received orders yesterday afternoon to go t* Tampa, Fla., and battery A, of Danville, orders te proceed to Chickamaugra. They will leave aa soon as fully equipped, which will probably be by next Saturday. The Seventh infantry will be mustered into the United States service today. Thomas Walsh, of company D, First infantry, went down town yesterday with a, companion and got drunk, and failed to leave with the regiment. He was arrested for desertion on his return to camp. The Sixth Illinois volunteers, Colonel D Jack Foster commanding, left at roidnlg-ht last night on the Wabash for Washington, the train being in three sections. Des Moines, la., May IS.—Ten companies of the Second regiment.of Iowa National Guard were mustered in as members of the Fiftieth Iowa volunteers yesterday. The .remaining 'two and the field and staff officers" will;'be sworn in today. A telegram was sen* to the department by Mustering Officer Olmsted, stating that the regiment •would not be equipped ready to move before Saturday, instead of tomorrow. The Iowa leaders do not want to send their men to the front unequipped as have other states. Now going on —for particulars see special reporter war extra, now being circulated. GREAT SPECIALTIES.

GREASE IN THE KITCHEN. pow to Cere For It So That It M»y Not Become a Nuisance. It is common to hear people speak of greasy sinks, pots and pans. These things would not exist; and do not, under proper management. It is a saving of time to save tbe grease which rises to the top of a soup pot or dripping pan. This may be done by straining it into receptacles kept for the purpose. The slight scum left clinging to tbe dish may be cue by throwing into the water poured in it half a handful of washing soda or a little potash dissolved in boiling water. With a good whisk kept for the purpose and this strong I alkali the dish may be quickly scrubbed clean and the sink in which it is washed will be cleaned at the same time. The poor manager "pans" or fries her chops, but she seldom utilizes tbe brown drippings or scraps of the meat and tbe grease left, although this will make & good gravy. She will, in nine cases out of ten allow it to burn in tbe pan, in which case it is far harder to wash the pan than it would be if tbe gravy had been made. It may not be desirable to serve the gravy with the chops, for this is hardly rich enough, but it will be a proper basis for the makino nf a nice tomato sauce. Well Honed and combined with an eqnal .

ASH & HADKRY 4270jMarket Fitting Paper. Abolishing Caste In America. There is a jolly possibility in the plan suggested by Mr. Charles Ferguson in The North American Review, a plan by whioh the writer thinks he could do away -with our shoddy social aristocracy in America and make the people of our republic really equal in opportunity as the Declaration of Independence presupposes them to be. Mr. Ferguson's idea is clothed in dignified language, as becomes a philosopher, and it is a little hazy in its direct application, but he who will may pick np the plan and apply it in his mind to his acquaintances, if not to himself, and see how it looks, Mr. Ferguson's idea is "voluntary servitude" for the rich. He says it is not wealth which directly is responsible for the caste system in America, but .the power which wealth gives to its possessors to own those who have it trot. He supposes the case of our being all rich, every mother's son and daughter of us. Suppose we all had plenty of money, who would be cooks and bootblacks? Suppose we all had our carriages, who would be our coachmen? We should all have to do our own cooking, black our own boots and take care of our own horses. We should be on exactly the same social footing, even as tbe ancestors of our American aristocracy were, even as many well to do farm families are today. Mr. Ferguson proposes in his fine language, therefore, 'shat a number of Eelf sacrificing npper class peoplft shall go into "voluntary sarritnde" and begin to wait on themselves. Step up and groom yon* horse, Mr. Vanderbilt! Go down into the kitchen^ Mrs. AstorJ Posts for tlie Erice Boys, New York, May IS.—Stewart Ml. a.nd William Kirk Brice, sons of ex-Senator Calvin S. Bric%, have received appointments in the United States army. William Kirk Brice is now on his way to Singapore from Hong Kong and as soon as possible will return to San Francisco. He will go with the army to the Philippine islands as military secretary to General Merritt. Stewart M. Brice sailed for New York on the Umbria from London last Saturday. On his arrival he will immediately assume command as captain in the regular army. ^ A'o Kew Call for Troops. •Washington, May iS.-General Miles, commanding the army, said yesterday that it was not the intention of the president tc call for an additional number o£ volunteers at this time. It is suggested that such a call at present would be a little premature in view of the fact that but a little over 90,000 of those troops already called for had been mustered into the service of the sov- ernment. _ Spaniel Spy at St. Louis. St. Louis, -May IS.—An unidentified man, suspected of being a. Spanish spy, is under arrest at Jefferson barracks. He was found in the mule corral, and being unable to give an account of himself was turr.ed over to the commandant. Captain Knight. When searched a lot of Spanish correspondence was found on the fellow. He spoke the Spanish language fluently. ttie walls properly: we mean paper that is appropriate to and harmonious with the room. Our long experience will be a great aid to you in making your choice, and our nig stock Is sure to contain just tbe paper ycu ought to have. The price will be a fitting price, too. Visit of tli« CHCM. Madrid, May 18.—Dispatches from Havana indicate that it is the opinion there among the Spaniards that the real object of the Uncas' visit there was to ascertain whether the Cape Verde fleet had arrived since the care taken by the Spanish officials to keep the Un- •sas at a safe 4istajjce. To Be Gra.'--efnl. For grace of carriage peasant women, •who are accustomed to carrying weights on their heads are deservedly noted. In the effort to keep tbe balance of the burden they are carrying these women train all the muscles of the body in order that they may walk smoothly and steadily, and the result is a queenly oarriag'e which many a great lady might envy. Keep DO-WTO the G«s BIIL A whistling sound from the burning gas indicates that unconsumed gas is escaping throagh the burner. Turn the key until the sound ceases. Burners should be frequently cleaned and renewed when they do not -work well, and a loose tey that does not indicate to a certainty whether gas is turned' on or off should not be tolerated for a day. San Francisco, May Remenyl, the the disdained gravy is converted into an appetizing relish. It may also be served with some vegetable, or it may be put aside for use on another day. To prepare the gravy stir into the grease left after frying half a dozen chops an even tablespoonful of flour. If no extra grease has been used to cook the chops, that which has been tried out of them will absorb this amount of flour. Add about a cup of boiling water and stir until all the brown bits in the pan are taken up. Season the gravy with half a teaspoonf nl of salt and a little pepper; add half a cup more of water, and let tbe gravy simmer for five minutes. When it is poured out, the pan can be easily washed with hot soapsuds. The materials which made it hard to wash before are used in tbe gravy When the gravy is cold, any grease that may not have been absorbed will rise to the top and can be removed. If the i gravy is needed at once, the fat can be skimmed off, though this is not so easy to do. Not only is it difficult to take off enough of the fat, bnt in the process a utensil is unnecessarily soiled and time must be used in washing it.—Exchange. TIMELY TURF TIPS.
