Rate Cutting Going on Again Among the Railroads. The Soo Line Makes a Cut of 5 Cents on Flour Bates bj Kail and Lake. One of the largest shippers Jn the country notes the demoralization of railway rates and attributes it to the greed of the railway corporations. "If the managers ol the eastern roads bad been satisfied wlch fair and reasonable rates," he says, --they would now have been doing a good and profitable business; but, with their usual avariciousness, when they saw an Improvement in the financial and business conditions of the country they began to screw up their freight rates little by little until they became so prohibitive as to stop east-bound shipments by rail almost entirely. They had hoped the lake lines would aid them ia the maln- tennance of the exorbitant rates and had arranged with them to advance rates on October 15th. The lake lines failed, however, to carry out their part of the agreement, and continued to take the business at the old rates. Last week east-bound roads from Chicago and St. Louis were to have given grain and flour rates another twist up wards, but the tension appears tc have v been so great as to demoralize rates, and instead of an advance greatly reduced rates are being offered, not Only un export, but also on domestic business, if reports are true. The Soo line started the trouble by announcing a 5-cent reduction in the rate on flour from Minneapolis by rail and lake to New York. The Soo line's excuse for It* action was that the competing line- nad made long-time contracts at the old rates that could not no be terminated. Upon investigation it was found that such contracts were in existence, and a regular stampede ia rate reductions set in." OIL OB SALT WATER Many Drills to be Set In Motion This Week.

Explorations Into the interior of the earth will begin in earnest in this county this week in search of oil The Logansport company has finally decided to drill its first well on the farm ot Albert Rogers just east of the Michigan pike, near the southwest corner of Bethlehem township. The company has nearly 1000 acres of land leased In that vicinity. The point selected is on nearly a directlioe between Peru and Royal Center and if the Peru field extends in that direction oil may be found there. The contractor expects to erect a derrick this week. The timbers for the derrick are now being hauled through from Peru and the drilling outfit has been shipped from Bowling Green, O. If no serious obstacles are encountered the well will be drilled In In about two weeks. This well and the ones being drilled in on the Crooks farm, at Adamasboro and at Fulton should demonstrate the value of the territory north or the river. W. P.

Egypt, China and Japan are the countries in which the earliest manufacture of paper is Known to have been carried on. The Egyptian paper was made of the cyperus papyrus. Egyptian paper was in general use in Europe until the eighth or ninth century of our era. It then began to give place to paper manufactured from cotton and other materials, the art of making which was apparently learned by the Arabs from the Chinese and introduced by them into Europe. Paper was made by the Chinese as early as the beginning of the Christian era, and. according to their own account, tho fabrication of paper from cotton was invented about. 200 A. D. Spain is said to have been the first country in Europe into which the manufacture of paper from cotton was introduced, probably in the eleventh century. How to Make D»t« Br*»d.

She has adopted the stylo of riding astride, which she declares to be the only proper way. "At first," says Miss riijuis, "I felt HOW MISS SIMIS BinESL dlfRdont about appearing down the road riding astride, but, once in the park, I lost all self consciousness. The majority of people passed apparently noticed nothing out of the ordinary. In not one instance was there the tendency to ridicule. A girl can look modest and inconspicuous riding this way and with the long waist etirt touching the saddle presents a much more graceful figure than many sidesad- dled riders. I must admit that during a mile or two of my first ride I did not feel at all at ease. I found it difficult to balance myself properly, and my right side showed a great tendency toward weakness, but once having solved the mystery of 'balance'on a fast trot no ride was ever more thoroughly enjoyed. I think the cycle path has pretty vrell paved the way for this; certainly no girl riding horseback astride need look, or perhaps could look, so manish. or unconventional as half the girls one meets daily on wheels. The skirt used on the horse completely hides even the rider's feet, and the waist should be long enough to touch the saddle and so cover any ungraceful opening of the divided skirt," Tether Ball. The new game of tether ball requires two tennis rackets and a ball fastened to a post about eight feet high by a string. \Vben evenly matched, the rounds last a good while, and the game becomes most exciting. The ball is far from easy to kit, as it comes with great force in a circular direction, but if you miss it once, several more chances are afforded you. The rope's length and the height of the post; 'should be arranged by rule. The rules of plsy are rather elastic, and may be fcrnmlatwd by the players.

Bay Ridge has a yacht club, and as it costs pretty heavily to rent a yacbt for a private sail somebody suggested to Clark that he would better join the clnb so that he would be invited to go out with those who owned their own yachts. This seemed to be a good idea, and Clark's name was soon enrolled as a member of the club. He was informed that he would be expected to purchase a yachting cap and wear it as the insignia of his membership. Mrs. Clark accompanied her =po;ise to a hat store to help him pick out his yachting headgear. He selected Sne with a blue baud, ou which an anchor was embroidered in gold lace. Mrs. 'Clark thought two anchors would look ranch prettier, and so Arthur, like a dutiful husband, yielded to her better judgment and bought a cap with a doable anchor. Day after day he wore that cap, but no one invited him to go sailing. Everybody else seemed to be invited out. but that cap apparently acted as a hoodoo, and its wearer was compelled to sniff the sea breezes from the land. Finally one afternoon a. regatta race was arranged, and it was desired that all available yachts should start. Claris was urged to bring out his yacht with the rest. "Why, bless your heart," he protested, "I have no yacht. " "What!" cried several cluh members in chorus. "Xu yacht? Then what are you doing with that cap?" "Why, isn't the cap all right?" stammered its wearer. ••Yes—but how about the double anchor?" "Mrs. Clark thought two looked prettier than one. Does it make any difference? What do the blamed anchors mean, anyhow?" "Two anchors," they said, "indicate that you own a yacht, and one that you are a member entitled to sail free on the club's yachts." Mr. Clark still thinks that there is wo discount on his wife's taste in matters of dress, but he now buys whatever he wears.—Chicago Times-Herald. How to"1V.»ke Delicious Clam Soap.

It is better to begin with young plants, says Vick's Monthly 1 Be careful not to overpot them. Wash the inside of the pots clean and give especially good drainage. Use open, rich, fibrous soil, light rather than heavy, and instead of filling the pot with soil to tho brim leave plenty of room to hold •water. Ferns should never get quite dry at the root, yet it will not do to keep them soaking wet. Many of them, especially the maidenhair and gold and silver ferns, dislike being splashed overhead, and hot sunshine must'never fall directly upon these delicate kinds. Ferns are sure to be killed by little dribblings of water given every day. The same rule that applies to watering other plants is good with ferns. When the top of the soil looks day, till the pot with water to the brim, so that all the ball of soil may have a thorough soaking. It is not best to set ferns in a draft of either warm or cold air. There is no need to keep ferns in the honse all summer, though many people do it They thrive better outside on the piazza-or other sheltered spot, provided the owner will not forget to water them. An old fern that has filled the pot full of roots may be repotted at any time except in fall. .Repotting at this season would interfere with the partial rest which most ferns like to take at this season. With plentiful watering one can grow quite large specimen ferns in wonderfully small pots. Two points that the fern grower must never forget in potting and repotting are to have the drainage particularly free and to take all earthworms from the soil. How to Choose a Sponge. The first requisite of a good sponge is that it should be dark in color. The beautiful yellow sponges rommouly seen in druggists' windows are a deln- sion and a suare. The natural color is a light to medium brown, and the yellow sponges have been bleached by a vitriol bath which destroys their elasticity anti makes them wear much sooner. The feel of a sponge should be velvety, and it should compress into a very small bulk by squetziug, and it must be of a uniform color. The best and most expensive are Levant sponges. They come from the eastern Mediterranean, the Dalmatian sponge being next in quality and price. There are very many others, however, known to the trade as horse sponges, Limocca sponges, yellow, velvet, sheep's wool and glove sponges. The prettiest and at the same time the cheapest is the graFs sponge, which is made up of myriads of small filaments and looks like a ball of yellow wool. The majority of sponges used in this country come from Florida. Cuba also supplies a good many. The sponge, after being detached from the bottom, either by a dredge net or an instrument Bometbing lite a sickla, which ia made for the purpose, is allowed to lie in the •un until the flesh decomposes. The sponges are then trodden tinder- foot in running water until the fleah i« all washed away, learing the skeleton, •which is the sponge M we know it It the decomposition ia allowed to go too far. yellow ipott will appear upon the iponge and damage it They are then packed up and wnt to th« dealer and, after a further wuhing, pot on the market - '' Jf ot QuUfed to Jm4««.
