Action Taken to Boom the Sngar Beet Industry in Indiana—Talk of Representation at the Paris Exposition. J, T. Elliott and Walter A.Osmer, who were appointed delegates to the State Board of Commerce, returned from Indianapolis last night. They report a good attendance from all sections of tbe state. Many valuable papers were read and discussed appertaining to the future welfare and benefit of the state at large, notably the natural resources of whiih persons and corporations outside of our borders have taken advantage of and are now reaping rich rewards. The object of the state board of commerce, which has been organized for three years, is to unite the efforts of the different localities of the state in setting forth our advantages and attracting the attention of our own people as well as oilhers to the natural wealth within our borders. It developed tbat Logansport was near the center of the best sugar beet producing region of the country, and that foreign capital was seeking- an Investment., in that line. The excellent paper of the state geologist on our atone, clay, coal, gas and oil, kaolin marl and the materials for making hydraulic cement; our clay for making tile and terra cotta work, etc., many of these products being oniy partially developed, was excellent. Measures were also introduced looking to a radical reform in expenditures In local government the application of toe revenue raised for the improvement of the public roads, a great part of which, especially that which is paid in by railways and other corporations, is now farmed out and the corporations pay only about one-half the amount assessed in actual cash.

OCCUPATION FOR WOMEN. Breeding Ancora Cat* Presents Possibilities For the Hoirie Tied. Forrest Crissey, in discussing "Tbe Breeding .of -Angora Cars as a Vocation," in The Woman's Home Compan ion, says: "It is tbe general opinion of these cat. fanciers that tbe culture of Angoras is an occupation which auy young woman •with a fcnduess for puts and a little of She commercial iustincc may pursue •with profit as well as pleasure. It is an occupation in •which success does not depend upon a special talent. One cannot succeed in literature, music, the arts or in teaching without a course of training and an inborn adaptability, but tbe rearing of cats calls for no meu- tal preparation or for any rare power in any particular direction. Capital, however, is necessary. Angora cuts bring a good price, and it will cost something to establish a kennel. Tbo amount will depend upon the magnitude of the beginning. One may expend $100 and secure, perhaps, three choice thoroughbred adults, or ac an outlay of $25 or thereabout one may purchase a male and a female kitten and rear them herself. The fitting np of a suitable kennel need not cost imnch, but there are important points in the construction aad care of the kennel which should not be neglected and which any owner of Angoras is always ready to explain. "The essentials for a successful -Angora kennel are not elaborate. Most important is an ample outdoor runway, made of woven wire, with a roof of the same material. This should connect with a cozy house or dormitory. Both apartments should be provided with elevated shelves, as the cats like to sleep as far from the ground as possible. They also enjoy the exercise of jumping up to and down from their elevated perches. Fresh grass and pure milk are absolute necessities. The Angora has been a luuch slandered animal. The general public believes it to bo-delicate in physique and surly and treacherous ft disposition. This is as far from the truth as is possible. They are almost uniformly amiable and affectionate in disposition and possess hardy and vigorouc constitutions. They are full of interesting eccentricities, however." Statue That Htpt a Valet. One of the most curious things i* Brussels, a thing that must be characteristic to some extent of the temper of the people, is tbe little manikin statue and fountain. It is a statue of a naked . boy, said to haw; been erected by a nobleman whose lost son was found on this spot. But there is not the least excuse for the boy's nakedness, for he is well supplied svith clothing of many sorts and is rich .enough to buy more suits occasionally, and is the owner of nine handsome costumes belonging to different periods. On fete days tbe coy is gorgeously clad, sometimes in bid French costumes, sometimes ia the uniform of the guard civique. All this is funny enough, but not as curious as the rest. It is the fashion for wealthy maiden ladies of Brussels to fall in love with the statue and remember it handsomely in their wills. Through one such bequest this petted boy is provided with a valet at a salary o:E $40, and a short time ago another unwedded admirer left §200 for the completion and maintenance of big wardrobe.—Kansas Citj NO PAIN!
