"Will you play with the Cleve- lands again next season?" inquired a representative of tbe Pharos of George Ouppy, the base ball pitcher, last evening. "Yes, I signed a contract while at Cleveland the other day. At the time I was the first member of the old team to put down my autograph." "You were laid up with a sore arm a greater part o£ last season; how 1§ IE effected?" "The great trouble is in the elbow; were it In my shoul3er it would end my career on the base ball Held. As it is I have hopes that the old whip will round up all right. T have never heard of a pitcher effected as I was last season. The Cleveland people told me that they would not expect much of me until July and for me to take it easy, I feel satisfied that I will be as gnnd as ever in 1899.

Your humble servant had the pleasure of being one of tho party — adout twenty — who transferred a pojtion oC the good things from the table to a more desirable and practical location. After dinner, target shooting and music were the order and all experienced a happy time and later de- par ted, each wishing Mrs. Barr and her good family tbe return of many more happy New Yesrs.

Hain't she a beaut? Sure, she's a corker! Can she get a move on herself? You bet she can get a move on herself. Can she hump it like de horse? No, she ain't in It wid the horse!

According to a South Dakota station bulletin on sheep feeding, the rations yielding tbe best profits are corn and oats, equal parts, which produced gains at 2.45 cents per pound, and barley and oats, equal parts, -which produced gains at 2.8 cents per pound. It has been found that the largest gains are n.ot necessarily the cheapest, nor are the smallest gains necessarily the most expensive. Observation makes it appear that the best and cheapest gains are made in feeding the sheep np to near its full capacity after it has become accustomed to its diet. Overfeeding is always accompanied by loss. The heavy feeding should be done during the last four or sis weeks of the feeding period. The St. Louis Incident. The mayor of St. Louis refused the request of the Woman Suffrage club of the city that a woman be appointed street inspector, saying that woman's nlace was at home. Certainly the condition of the streets in many cities would tend to support the mayor's idea. But as unfortunately women have to come in contact with all this pollution in the ordinary course of their business and pleasure why should they not come in contact with it with authority to banish it? It would be hard work to convince women accustomed to 'taking hold of things thac need clearing np that it is more womanly to endure that which is a nuisance and a menace to health than it is to remedy it. How differently mayors talk in states where women are voters! — Woman's Tribune. Sealskin. It is a curious fact that tbe price of sealskin has taken a most decided drop. This is accounted for by the fact that imitations are so good that the average purchaser cannot be certain of what she is getting. Sheared and plucked furs are so exquisitely finished that even an expert may be deceived at a distance. Of course no one who is familiar with irnrs could make any mistake upon eramiaa- tion, but the average customer has never had either the opportunity or occasion to know the difference, and it •would not be worth her while to take the trouble to learn. Therefore it is that sealskin has become one of the less expensive of the excellent furs ia market. — Exchange. _ ^__ --THR-- New Fflrnitore Store. Special Sale Of this serviceable and useful....
