Though the library plan talked of by many as a substitute for the idea of an Indiana centennial, is a most excellent one, there is an iuimeuse army of Hoos- ie.rs who would gain little from a distribution of literature who would be grcafly benefited bj road improvements. It has been suggested that the library plan wou.Ul.be of local interest and that townships and counties should haudlo the project 1 at home. This is also true of the good roads idea. Tlic building up of libraries in sections where tlic resident in quest of State literary goins would have to go oh stilts or walk fences to and from the distributing polut during, much of the year, would bi a mockery to the isolated tax payer. .

' Representative BuHlnesH JMon or the United Htatos to Make an Effort, to Incroavo Our Export Traile—Enterprise la nl^li Fuvor. It was announced a month ngo Uiat the National Associu.tion of Manufacturers had undertaken the organization of a party of representative business 1 men for the purpose of visiting SoutJi America this summer. An extraordinary amount of iutcre.pt in the project has been manifested throughout the country. In South America the projected visit has aroused the interest of those countries not concerned in the tour to such r.n extent that efforts have been made to secure changes in the itinerary or an extension of the trip so ns-to include several countries not embraced in the present pb.ns. There has been sorae talk of crossing' the Andes to Chili fronr the province of Mendoxa, in Argentina, and now the Peruvian government is anxious to have the party include Peru in its tour. President Theodore C. Search, of the National Association of Manufacturers, said: "While it will be impossible for our pn.rty to extend it« tour and accept this invitation of the Peruvian government, still this expression of earnest welcome is very interesting 1 as signifying the interest wi'..h which this trip is viewed in South America, and the importunes which is attached to it there. The interest with which this trip is regarded 1;y business men in every section of the United States is really remarkable, and it shows how eager bur people are. to enlarge their foreign trade. There is every prospect that the body will be e. body thoroughly representative of the most important manufacturing interests in the United States." Highest of all in. Leavening Power.—Latest U. S.

BROWN, N. {G. J. D. ALLISON, Soe'y. ' • ! Object to Sccuru 1'ujiers Provlnc Alliance llctwcen TriuiHvual and Gcriuuny. An article written by Seymour Fort. who was private secreUiry to Lord Loch while the latter was British high commissioner in South Africa, throws a fuller and clearer light upon the motives of Jameson's raid into the Transvaal than anything that has been yet divulged. Writing' with the assent of Lord Loch,.Mr. Fort asserts that Jameson designed to rush upon. Pretoria, the capital of the Transvaal, and seize documents there proving- the existence of on offensive and defensive alliance between the Transvaal end Germany. Had the plan succeeded, Pretoria, in the •course of a single night, w<>uM have passed from the possession, of the Boer government into the hands of the Johannesburg reform committee. Cecil lihodes is said, during his recent visit to England, to have given Mr. Charober- luiii, the colonial secretary, proofs of the existence of an entente between Ger- irnny and.the Transvaal. Mr. Fort does not adduce a single document to prove his statements, which, it is scarcely necessary to say, ore accepted ns the truth by the defenders of Rhodes and the British South Africa company. The conservative papers hint tit sensational de-' velopmcnts when the trial of Jameson find his fellow-raiders shall be resumed, including 1 the production of the documents, showing that there was an understanding 1 between Germany and the Transvaal, CONSTANTLY IN A TREMOR. A N«w York Street Ilu8 a Chronic Case ol the Slilvc™. A section of Twcnty-sixtb street, New York, daily enjoys sensations similar to those caused by a constant succession ; of earthquaake shocks. Everything: in the vicinity trembles as if suffering from a mild attack of the ague. It is > really, says the Xew York Journal, perpetual motion. Thcirc is a clubhouse in this section, right in the center of the trembling 1 district. A recent visitor, one who had not been there before, noticed that objects on t.hc mantel or elsewhere always moved slig-hfly, and that he himself felt a strange v:- bratiOTi. The friend with whom he was dining laughed at his uneasiness. "It's always that way here," he said. "It's only a lit.tie shalce, perhaps t'hc hundredth part of an iEch, but it's perpet^ ual. Some day I fear the building wiil shake to pieces all at once, Just like the 'wonderful one-horse shaj-.' Th cause? Oh, it's that electric lightplau opposite.

There's one pleasanter aspect however, to this vibration." 1 Then the clubman performed a pleas ing experiment. He requested the ca terer to bring him a glass of milk, som rum, ice and sugar. These he blended after which he placed the glass-upon the window sill. "In three minute*,' said ths clubman, "it will be a.perfec milk shake," It was no exaggeration. The vibration, though annoying 1 , at least supplied one want. L «1NT9 WANTED: New book; Illustrated and A Dramatic tllaiorr ot the M Louis Cjclone ful KTitpnlo account of I 1 ott'hand Devastation.

AN OLD DOCUMENT. Declaration of Independence of TOXM Found-In ArclilTCH at TVaRlilnjfton* The curious fact has beeiibroug-htout j that the state deportment is in posses- ' sion of the original of the declaration of independence adopted by the congress o£ Texas when that state was part of J-I'cxico. Hon. Seth W. Shepard, associate justice of, the court of appeals of the District of Columbia, recently wrote to tlie state department on the subject, saying 1 the orig-inaJ paper was held by Tlio federal government and desiring to know whether it did not properly belong to the state. The state department archives were searched and the document found, bound in a. volume of diplomatic correspondence relating 1 to the recognition of Texan independence by the United States. It is undoubtedly the orig-inal, signed by Sam Houston nnd his colleagues. An indorsement on the paper by Secretary Forsythe says the document was left at the deportment by "Mr. Wharton." .-Who Mr, Wharton was the state department is anxious to ascertain. Secretary. X)lney lias written to Judge Shcpard that there Eeemed to be no evidence that the declaration belonged to the United States government and promising 1 to look into' the matter of possession. ELOPERS STOPPED. Bride*! Father Didn't Want the Expense ' of a Town Trip. Riding along a West Virginia road was interested in seeing a young man and young woman on horseback com fng down the road on a gallop. Not far behind them was an old man givinj chase. By cutting through the woods at one place he succeeded in heading them off and caught hold of the bridles just as I drove xip, Baid C. E. Ward leigh to o Washington Star reporter. "Whar yo' all g-oin'7" he demanded. "You can't stop us now but we'll ge 1 married," answered the young roan.de liantly. "I iain't tryin' ter stop 10' nil. E: yo' is boun* ter marry yer kin, but I wanted a talk. Yo' oil's gwine ter town. How long yo' spose yo'll stay? "Two or three days," answered the groom. • "At $2 a day," said the father, "besides' hoss feed an' hoss hire, for I'll make yo' pay for them horses, shore. Then $5 for a preacher. I wanted Lindy ter marry Sam, fcr I owed him $5 an' he wouldn't say nothin' 'bout itof she'd hev 'im. Parson Long owes me an' he'll m«rry yer fer sothiu'; tha.r won't be no board bill an' hoss feed.

A man who has made n careful study of the habits of ajiimals and birds, and who firmly believes that birds think and are controlled by brain action in a great measure—about, if not quite as much ns human beings, and not by the "overrated instinct"—told a few nights ago of the odd effect natural history had oil him. "Do you know," said he, "that since 1 learned that birds and mammala think, I have had a sort of spleen against flesh? When I cat a partridge 1 think of the bird's wiles used in its endeavors lo escape tlie hunter'o merciless shot. It is the eaiae with the ducks, turkeys, deer and beeves, mid all other flesh,"but not fish. I have thcciread.or feeling, that I nin eating-a rational being. I think that if vegetarianism ever becomes universal, it will be when we understand the thoughts of birds and Mammals and are Jible to converse with them. AVe a.re just now entering on a wonderful field of research. We have found the door to real natural history knowledge, and we are now groping for the keyhole." An Indlnn Legend. The red men of the west have mtiny curious legends concerning nature's marvels; none more weird than that concerning .Rock lake, Washington. Since time out ot mofnory the Indians of that vicinity have believed the Jal<e to be the abode of a sea monster, which never grows old, and whose chief diet is Indian flesh. According to the leg-end, no Indian ever entered its waters and returned alive, no matter whether the rash act was committed by approaching its margin for a drink, for a swim, or for a canoe ride. So thoroughly is this belief spread among the Indians of the northwest that each and every one would prefer death to touching 1 its waters. LINCOLN'S WIDE SYMPATHY. Treated All People Alike In a Courtcon* ManncD* "Horace Greclc3 r once said: 'I doubt whether man, woman or child, white or '.lack, bound or free, virtuous or vicious, ever accosted or reached forth a hand to Abraham Lincoln and detcctr ed in his countenance or manner any repugnance or shrinking from the proffered contact, any assumption, of supc- riorijy, or betrayal of disdain.' "Frederick Douglas, the orator and patriot, is credited with saying: 'Jlr. Lincoln is the only white man with whom 1 have ever ialj;ecl, or in whose presence 1 have ever been, who did not consciously or unconsciously betray to me that he rcco.qfEixcd ray color.' "George lianerofu the historian, alluding to this characteristic, which was never so conspicuously manifested as during the darker clays of the war, beautifully illustrates it in these memorable words: 'As a. child, in a dark night, on a rugged way, catching hold of the hand of its father for guidance and support, Lincoln clung fast to the hand of the people and moved caJmly through the gloom.' " SMART COYOTE TRICK. Sh«cp Cleverly.Herded to the Urlnk of » Precipice. An incident in illustration of a smart trick said to be frequently played by coyotes in securing- food from among the herds of sheep on western ranches iy related by a rancher of Grant county, Oregon. lie had a herd of about 1,'000 sheep, and recently missed a large number. In. searching for them a herder found three sheep lying on the brink of a. precipice, their throats marked with the teeth of a coyote. He made his way to the bottom, :i canyon, 300 feet below, and there found the bodies of 310 sheop, or rather parts of their bodies, for the coyotes had been feeding on the carcasses for a week or more. From other incidents of like character it was concluded that several coyotes had got among the herd when the sheep were driven off their bedding during a storm,.and had herded them to the brink of the precipice, much as a lot of sheep dogs would drive sheep. When the edg'e was reached the coyotes pressed the herd so hard in tlie rear that the -110 at the front either jumped or were pushed over the precipice. LONELY." Drunken Grate la "PA FELT Queer Freak of ft A Cleveland f nuiily was in court the other day. A daughter was one of the witnesses, and she had this cheerful tale to tell of her fa.ther: "Pa was sitting in his saloon, feeling lonely. He, went to the barn, and putting ^.halter on his horse brought him into, the house, saying- he wanted the animal to eat supper with hiin. Pa made me set. a plate for the horse. Then he took hold of the horse's front logs and lifted- them up on the table. We ail satdown to supper and the horse began to cat. Pa> picked up a mug of beer and began to laugh and throw both hands in the air. The mug hit the liorst- on the nose. The beast pulled his feet down, dragging tlic tablecloth and upsetting the table. The horse backed up and sat squarely on a rcdhot stove. This 'burned its tail so the animal lucked the stove over ind ran out of the door. I screamed and pa threw a lamp atme. The house.' came near catching fire, aod a policeman came in. Pa has been arr<?sted 103 times." Not the Replies Intended. The following extracts arc from examination papers recently .handed in nt a public school in Connecticut: 1. Trom what animals do we get milk? •~rom the camel and the milkman. 2. The hen is covered with feathers. With vhat is the cat covered? The cat is' Mvered with fleas. 3. Name an animal hat has four legs and a long tail. A.' mosquito. 4. Name two kinds of nuts.
