Judge Palmer, of the White Circuit court, has rendered a very important decision in the matter of employing tax ferrets. He holds: 5 First—That section 7,853, B. S., 1894, under provisions of which contracts by boards of commissioners of various counties of this state have been sustained, was repealed by implication by Section 147 of the (j;eneial tax law of 1881, so far as it j has reference to the board employing jpersons to discharge the duties of officers, and that the repeal of the provision la the law of 1881 which took place in 188'J, did not re vive that part of Section 7,853 repealed by the law of 11381'. Second—That the matter of the discovery of omitted property beyond 'that provided was a question for the legislature and that the tjoard of commissioners had no control over it, and that any attempt on the part of the board to interfere with the duties of the county officers was unwarranted and ultr% vires. Third—That the contracts giving the ferreits a certain per centage of all they recover are wholly contrary to public policy, are champertous, have a tendency to fraud and are void. Fouroh—That the contract with the board, allowing the ferrets 50 per cent, of nil they recovered,out of the general funds of the county, when,in fstct, the county only receives about 14 per cent of the amounts discovered, was unconstitutional and would not be upheld. Her Great Work In the Interest of Bohemian Women Recognized. Mme. Jindriska Peskova of Pragne, in whose honor the Bohemian women of Chicago recently held a celebration, is the most distinguished womaji in the Austrian empire and was recently decorated by the emperor in acknowledgment of her great work among women. As the second Austrian woraan ever given a medal by the emperor, Mme. Pesfcova is a particularly interesting •woman. Her chief work has been the MME. PESKOVA. building in Prague cf a magnificent woman's building which cost $200,000 and which is the center of •woman's activities in that empire. Every year 2,000 Bohemian young women are here prepared for the University of Prague, the doors of which institution -were opened to women through the untiring efforts of Mme. Peskova. She is also the foremost-poetess of her country, editor of a woman's journal, translator of many languages and a waiter on educational matters. A Slight Blaze. The firemen at the Fifteenth street station, were called out by telephone, at 9:30 this morning, to extinguish a blaze that had started in the residence of Mr. Berndt, on Smead street, from an overheated stove. The carpet was destroyed and a small hole burned in the floor salesman for the wholesale liquor department. After taking the testimony of Capt.

In conversation with John H. Wendling, one of the active movers in the attempt to develop the field, be said to a Pharos man that it was useless to carry the investigation farther, that enough was known to develop tbs fact that the field is not a productive one. The last well drilled ia contains some oil, but not enough to justify pumping it out. How We May Know We Are Christians.

Their mew and bright lilstle daughter has been named Pharos FeLker, as a compliment to the Daily Pharos, with which they were both connected before their marriage. The Pharos was ia error in stating that Mrs. Spencer who eloped with County Clerk Hamston, of White county, was a grand daughter of B. O. Spencer, a former citizen of this city. The eloping Spencer woman Is a widow and In no way related to B. O. Spencer. Mr. Spencer Is not now a resident of Montlcello. \ The Borne Ia the School. Mrs, J. P. Mumford of the New Cen- tnry club of Philadelphia spoke before the state federation on "The Home In the School." 'In westing her subject Mrs. Mumford referred to the changes that have taken- place in our educational world since the days of the old "committee man" who was wont to dangle his h>:>s from a high wooden bench the ile be imbibed knowledge from the o universal textbooks? learning—the l.lue covered speller. The great tract of educational progress that lies between that time and tho present forms the truest index of the world's advancement along all lines. In this connection the advantages (and the weak spots as well) of out present school • systems were dwelt tipon and entertainingly described. The keynote of the address was the sentiment that "we shall never have the right kind of education until the mother and the teacher stand shoulder to shoulder, hand to hand." To accomplish this the mother must take an active interest in the schoolroom relations between her boy or her girl and the teacher. Bemoralile Guimjw*. The girl who is wise, says a fashion writer, has in her wardrobe this season a waisc made with a removable guimpe. For instance, one girl has a gown of blue cloth. The bodice is bloased and cat with a round decolletage. With this gown she has ho,!f a dozen gnimpes. One, of black silk, puts the gown in condition for ordinary business wear, another is of pale yellow satin covered •with guipure and transforms the costume into one suitable for more dressy occasions and still, another is of white chiffon picked om; with tiny gilt pail- lettes and appropriate for theater wear. The last gniffljx) is well worth special description. It has a dog collar of velvet, sprinkled with the.yellow paillettes. On this collar tho chiffon is fulled and spreads out ia soft folds to the top of the bodice proper, where a full double flounce of chiffan is gathered. The Jounce falls over sleeves and bodice, almost entirely concealing them. An Interesting Old Hody. Undoubtedly Mme. dn Bos d'Elbhecq £ the oldest. living woman who supports herself-^yber pen.

Miss Murfree has never explained why she chose Charles Egbert Craddock as the disguise tinder which so absolutely and so long to deceive the reading public as to her sex. Mrs. Cross admitted she took the name George Eliot for a whim acd because she thought it had a thoroughly simple masculine sound, but Mrs. Craigie confesses that the nom de plume John Oliver Hobbes was put together with design and care. Since her very earliest stirrings of literary ambition were felt she intended to write under the name John because it was her father's and she dearly loved and reverenced it. Oliver she chose because of her great admiration for Cromwell, who long was cherished as her favorite hero, and Hobbes was taken as the most typically Anglo-Saxon surname she could find. Recently Mrs. Craigie has announced to her friends that all questions of religious doubt have been for her answered by the .Roman Catholic church. Her profession of faith followed a long illness, after which she was visited and instructed by a, friendly priest and at length found conviction.—Chicago Record. The Fashionable Coiffure. To be strictly up to date, the back hair should be waved in large waves and well combed out, them pushed downward with pompadour combs made for that purpose. Women vrith heavy suits of hair wear close 3jnots of braid for the morning and crimp the front, combing it back plain from the forehead without the exaggerated roll. The part is seldom seen, and never on women who make any pretentious to fashion, but a soft bang, worn very short, is still worn "by women who have never given up this style. ^Side combs are more worn than ever and come in (sets of three and four. The most stylish ones are hinged together. In sets of four one goes above the knot, one below and one on either side. In sets of three the middle comb is generally used above the knot and is a trifle higher and more ornate than the two side combs. The teeth of the combs are coarser and placed farther apart and curve to fit the head. Many of them are plain, others are ornamented with narrow bands of silver or gold, and still others are beautifully carved.—Woman's Home Companion. - A Great Slaughter SALE OF FIXE WINTER SHOES Which roust be closed out at one-third their vshie to make room for our large Purchase of Spring Goods.
