Does it even tend in that direction? Quite the reverse What we say is that the newspapers upon the whole perform their part in respect to these matters much better and more intelligently than could the people who are always preaching to the press about what it ought to do — unless as is sometimes suspected those who have no knowledge of the business can manage newspapers conduct governments or run hotels better than those who have devoted the best years of their lives to trying to learn how Never before has Europe got so large a Troportion of Its imported wheat from the United States as this year The foreign markets are slow to follow the rise in prices that has occurred in the United States but if increased sup plies do not begin soon to pour forth from other countries the foreigners will be compelled to become urgent buyers in this country regardless of the price Just at present the foreign demand is slack The large current exports are the result of sales made some time ago and they are slowly falling off There is no doubt that the United States still has a large surplus available for export which will accumulate at market centers and check the rise in the market if Europe does not buy freely But with a renewal of a liberal foreign demand the speculative sentiment in favor of higher values may result in forcing Europe to pay fancy prices for wheat before the crop year ends Including the whole range from the smallest torpedo boats to the largest battleships England has 119 war vessels under construction or planned for construction The prospect for a short session of the legislature is not very good The house calendar already carries 220 bills and that of the senate at least 150 GRATUITOUS WORK OF REFORM The Baltimore Yearly Meeting of Friends sends out an appeal to the press asking the newspapers “so to construct their items of news that the insatiate love for things which make for evil will be done away” The circular which is signed by a committee of fourteen women aims to reach a desirable end but it makes the common mistake of supposing that newspapers are printed with a view to conducting works of moral reform They are conducted as business enterprises and they undertake to aid all good causes and to correct existing evils and wrongs as far as they can consistently with the fulfillment of their office as newspapers If they report things that are unlovely it is because men do things that are unlovely They are misjudged on this point by bigoted people who con eive that the newspapers search for vile things to print whereas in fact every well-meaning paper — and these are immensely in the majority — greatly prefers to publish matters which show humanity in its more lovely and loveable aspects and refuses or suppresses ten-fold more of the disagreeable and hateful things of everyday life than it prints and this in spite of the fact that it knows there is always a large and hungry constituency eager to read accounts of evil things often more hungry with shame be it said than the better element is to read of things that make for good Hence it is that as a rule newspaper men look with contempt on most of the self-imposed labors of those very good people who burn with a desire to purify the press What do such people know of the inside workings of the press? TV hat do they know of the infinite variety of unworthy appeals that come to the press to shoulder (always at its own risk and expense) this and that personal interest and to gratify this and that personal spite of people who want to stay out of sight and see somebody squirm? They are wholly ignorant of the fact that the average 'ormer of the press has nothing to Parsnip Complexion It does not require an expert to detect the sufferer from kidney trouble The hollow cheeks

XEELY’S MOTOR Phenomena Said to Have Boon Prod need by Deception and Trickery Boston Jan 30 — The Herald says: T Burton Kinraide who is supposed to be the sole possessor of the Keely motor secret in an interview about the alleged expose of the Keely motor by Attorney Charles 8 Hill and Ransom S Bridge said that he was indignant at the treatment of himself and the apparent breach of faith with him by Hill He said “I cannot comprehend the action of these two men My letter to the stock- holders of the Keely Motor company had been carefully prepared and was mere ly waiting for the return of a document from them to Mr Hill I did not give my consent to any of the pretended disclosures made by Mr Hill or Mr Bridge nor did they inform me regarding the course which they have pursued despite the fact that I have been in daily communication with Mr Hill” The statement of Hill to which Kinraide refers was an elaborate expose that puts the dead Keely in the light of a rascal It says hie phenomena were all produced with the aid of a concealed water motor secret wires tubes etc Senate and House In Brief Washington Jan 30— A spirited debate was precipitated in the senate Saturday while the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill was under consideration the result of the debate being an increase in the salaries of a number of consuls and legation secretaries The bill was passed A recess was taken to enable senators to attend Garland’s funeral The bill permitting the use of voting machines at congressional elections was passed In executive session the Paris treaty was discussed Frye explaining the treaty and negotiations The house Saturday continued the consideration of the army organization bill until 2 o’clock when the members paid their tributes to the memory of the late Representative Simpkins of Massachusetts Very little progess was made with the army bill He Worked His Little Scheme With Snch Conanmmate Coolness and Nerve That He Even “Rattled” the Conductor Into Apologising If the ticket seller of the Burlington railroad office had noticed the man who bought the ticket to Riverside at all he must have been impressed by his appearance of “smoothness" He was “smooth" and although he had told a person a few minutes before that he was going to Cedar Rapids la it seemed inconceivable that he was buying the Riverside ticket in a fit of absentmindedness It wanted ten minutes to train time and having purchased his ticket the “smooth" man took up an easy position with his back to the wall near the ticket window and began to scan a yard long time table with an air of intense interest Three or four other suburb bound people came along during the next five minutes but the man with the time table never looked up Then oame a man with a oouple of fat grips and the time table student threw a swift sidelong glance toward him as he bought his ticket and then ran his finger along a column of figures as though he had just found a clew to the train he wanted Another man with grips hurried up to the window and this time the “smooth’ looking man began to fold up bis time ta ble in a leisurely way and then sauntered along behind the last oomer to the train Both men got into a chair car and seat ed themselves side by side and the next minute the train pulled out Within five minutes the man who had been described as of a “smooth" aspect thrust his left hand into his trousers pocket and pulled out some loose change and a bunch of keys He counted the money and looked thoughtful — it amounted to $176 — then he replaced it and hunting through his other pookets produoed a penoil His seatmate held his ticket in his hand and after another hurried search through his pookets the searcher turned to him and politely asked him if he might take the pasteboard for a minute “Certainly" assented the owner of the valises and he banded over the ticket “You don’t mind if I write on it do you?" asked the “smooth” man with a smile The other looked rather doubtful but before he could reply his companion was scrawling a rapid memorandum on the back of the ticket Then he pulled out his money again recounted it glanced at the memorandum with knitted brows and handed the ticket back with another smile “I have lost some money ” he explained “and I wanted to figure it out I didn’t have a scrap of paper about me" The man with the valises bowed turned the ticket over and looked at it He read : Railroad $16 75 Dinner 75 Cab 50 Cigars 25 $18 25 Cash left 1 75 Grip’s Ravages Doomed So much misery and so many deaths have been caused by the

Cunningham Brothers’ drug s Lore Perfection Fonncl at Last t- Decatur Hl- Jan 24 1S98 Dear Sirs — I received a gun shot wound in ’64 while in the army which caused a partial paralysis of the bowels and from that time to the present I lave had to use a laxative I have JjT1!? a great many kinds of medicine in that time but have never found anv as effective or that has been as near natural as Dr Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin Yours Truly - JOHN ARMSTRONG For sale by Watson Faulkner 9 $20 00 And when be had read it he looked as if he did not desire any further acquaintance with a person who had only $175 cash left In a few minutes the conductor oame through the crowded car and gathered up his tickets He took the “smooth" man’s Riverside ticket punched it and added it to his bundle and reached over and stuck a white slip in the band of the other man’s bat and passed on to get 400 or 500 more tickets from the other passengers The “smooth” man made no attempt to renew his conversation with his seatmate and at Morton Park rose and strolled forward into the smoking car where he pulled a big black olgar from his pooket and smoked plaoidly until the train passed Downer’s Grove Here the conductor looked at him as he passed walked on a few steps stopped and turned back “Where do you get off?” he asked The “smooth" man looked up a minute with an air of mild surprise then flicked the ash off his oigar and said “I go through to Cedar Rapids" “Where’s your train oheck then?" asked the conductor “I don’t know" said the “smooth” man “Perhaps — no I guess you didn’t give me any I’m sure you didn’t I remember now” “Young man” said the conductor sternly “if you haven’t got that train oheck you will have to get off at the next stop That's all there is about that ” “Conductor”-retorted the young man in calm even tones “I don’t believe you will put me off this train I don’t know anything about your train check and I don’t care a continental but I do know that I’ve paid my fare and that you took my ticket and I propose to ride to my journey’s end or your company will have a nice little damage suit on its hands" Theoonduotor looked at him keenly and he sustained the look with a cool steady stare Then he laughed “Oh I don’t want any trouble about it!" he said “I’m not hunting damage suits I’d sooner pay my fare again in fact if I hadn’t lost some money just before I got on the train By George I” he exclaimed suddenly with the light of inspiration illuminating his faoe “Why surel lean prove that you’ve got that ticket” “Well?" said the conductor “Why It’s this way: I started out with $40 and I last $20 I figured it out on the back of my ticket before I gave it to you See here” — taking an envelope and writing on the back of it — “you take this and look over your tickets If you don’t find that identical memorandum in my handwriting on the back of my ticket you can put me off or rather I’ll get off without trouble" Saying which the “smooth" man smiled confidently and leaned back comfortably in his seat and resumed his oigar The conductor took the envelope in a serious noncommittal sort of way and walked off with it In a few minutes he returned his face wreathed in apologetic smiles ‘Well it’s on me I guess" ho said “I’ve got to ask your pardon You seo there’s so much suburban travel on this line a man is liable to get mixed up but I want to say to you that it’s something I don’t do onco in 100 years I wouldn’t have believed I’d forgotten to give you a check It’s lucky for you that you made that memorandum" “I guess it was" said tho “smooth’ man ihen he added as tho conductor was moving off “Aren’t you going to give me that check now?” “Why of course I" exclaimed the conductor “You’ve got me rattled sure " -Chicago Record No Difference Wliat This Or That Man’s Thermometer Showed Saturday night and Sunday were by far the coldest night and day in this section of Illinois Everybody who knows anything knows this The weather man for once in his life at least knew this cold wave was coming before it got here he was kind enough to tell the people what he knew and the people who put considerable dependence in him made their preparations and bySo doing got through the “cold snap” without being frozen to death History will never know exactly how cold it was This man’s thermometer showed that it was 17 degrees below Sunday morning his neighbor’s showed that it w’as only 15 while the thermometer owned by the man just across the street registered a temperature no lower than 12 degrees below zero and it is taken that this was about correct It cannot be said that there has been a great moderation today and what is worse still the weather man says that there is another cold wave coming right on top of the one which has not moved on to the next state The reports received by wire indicate that the cold snap is general over the west and that extreme cold weather has prevailed for the past 48 hours with a good prospect of its continuance At least there is no present indication of milder weather and from points in Nebraska eastward over Iowa Missouri Southern Illinois and Indiana comes reports that the winter wheat fields are bare and that weather as low as kero or below is almost certain to damage the crop There is no lack of fuel as yet and coal dealers incline to think the presence of cold weather will make it easier to get coal cars so that they do not feel any hesitancy in saying they will be able to supply the demand THE GRAIN MARKET SITUATION RATHER TOUGH LU0K FOR A GROOM After Being Married Only a Short Time He Was Rearrested J Oscar Bradon of Fond du Lac Wis and Miss Rosa Swartz of Areola were married in Moultrie county last Monday by Rev J F Fowler The honeymoon of the couple was of brief duration for the groom who was an inmate of the Pontiac reformatory was arrested and lodged in jail at Sullivan for alleged failure to make the necessary reports required by the parole law on which he had been liberated His alleged offense was horse-stealing and he probably will be taken back to the institution though an effort will be made to save him on account of his wife Seven Young Old M aides Nellie Glenn of West Hill street entertained seven of her girl friends Saturday afternoon at what she denominated in her invitation as an “Old Maids’ Convention” At the time appointed each guest arrived clad in what she considered the correct thing for an old maid’s costume Every one appeared with knitting or patchwork and while the needles were plied the story of how each one just missed being an old maiff was told The girls proved themselves to be capital storytellers as well as skillful in the construction of a love story with a collapse in the end of It Light refreshments were served during the afternoon The invited guests were Nellie Davidson Helen Calhoun Jennie Craig Mamie Mountain Elizabeth Graff Imo Baker and Vera Turell & hacking cough is a dangerous cough And How It Is Influenced by the Cold Wave CHICAGO Jan 30 — The grain trade was reasonably active today but halted somewhat for the government’s final 1898 crop summary giving all the crop totals of the year rr’- report is to be given to the press at 4 o clock this afternoon The severe cold weather which prevails all over the west is regarded as a bull element -t foreign buyers are not very active Still the cold wave together with the large receipts amounting to 946000 bushels of wheat and 972000 bushels of corn caused the traders to absorb all the offerings The clearances kept up to a high mark being 587000 bushel of corn and 1049000 bushels of wheat flour included The fact of so large a portion of the winter wheat area being bare with the thermometer below zero causes anxiety for the safety of the next crop and operates as a bull factor Baby’s Face Solid Sore Entire Heed a Solid Scab Had to Wear a Tar Cap Doctors and All Other Remedies Fail CURED BY CUTiCURA My little nephew
