J u l y 3.--Leaders of the Republican party here who have been canvassing the congressional situation say they are confident that next (all ninety-three Uepublican congressmen ·vfill be elected to peats now occupied bv Democrats or Progressives. In many other districts they assert they have gooa fighting chances. There are now 129 Republicans In the house. Thus success in the fall cam- palsrri would Kive the Republican partv party 222 members out of the total house membership of 435. DEMOCRATS LOSE PRESTIGE. . The confidence of the Republicans that they will have a majority in the next congress is based upon three features of the situation: 1. That many Democrats now occupying scats in the house are acknowledged "accidents" who slid in on the "\Vilson boom 2. That the Progressive \ote will be lla:ht an1 that the defections from that party will be to the Republican ranks, as snown by several recent elections. 3. That there IB in many states widespread dissatisfaction with the Democratic party because of the effect of the t a r i f f on local industries. ASSASSIN TELLS OF KILLING PAIR Vienna, July 3--Tedeljo Gabrinovlcs, who threw a bomb at Archduke Ferdinand and wife while they were proceeding to the Sarayevo town hall last Sunday, yesterday made a confession, according to a dispatch received from Sarayevo. Oaorlnovlcs says that after learn- j ing- that Archduke Francis Ferdinand was going to Sarayevo he communicated with Qavrlo Priniip. who fired the fatal shots, with the result that they resolved to go there also and kill the archduke and the duchess. ACCOMPLICE ADMITS GUILT. Prlnzlp. who had previously denied that he had any accomplices, yesterday broke flown under examination and told of his part in the crime. The accomplices ot the two principals were named, one of whom has been arrested. Customers and Clerks Anxious and Hurried. There Is always a distracting rush In the down town groceries in thj* morning hours buf this morning It was worse than usual. More customers were waiting on themselves and the clerks were flying about In a more hurried and anxious manner than usual. All were trying to ffet aomethlng done before noon on the day before the Fourth. BIO DEMAND. There WRH a blsr demand for fancy groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables and while there was apparently plenty to eat for everybody, It did seem that there was not the usual large assortment of fresh fruits end vegetables to be found In the Decatur markets. ARRIVALS GRABBED. A new arrival ot something extra fancy like a crate of plump cherries or crimson currants from Michigan or good looking southern roasting ears would be soiled by some clerks before the receiving clerk had a chance to check It off and often new fruits and vegetables would be on the wagon and away before the store really knew that it had the thing In stock, IRISH COBBLER POTATOES. One of the Interesting arrivals In the way of eatables this week has been fancy large white potatoes from Virginia. TTiese are the real Irish cobbler, ths most popular early potato on the A t l a n t i c const. It seldom gets here because potatoes from the American bottoms usually come a little before the cobbler gets Into the market. These po- tntoos are said to equal any t h a t have ever comp Into this market at this time of the year. They sell at 60 c^nts a pock. ROASTING EARS. Home Brown roasting ears are on sale at 30 cents a dozen. A few southern roastiner ears are still coming and selling: at 00 cents a dozen. The southern are about twice as large as the home grown. SOMETHING SOUR. The lemon market continues to stiffen up, although there has not beerl much change In price, which Is 35 and 40 cents a dozen. There Is a big demand for lemons. This is relieved somewhat by the extensive sale of limes, which are used largely by soda fountains In place of lemons. Limes sell at 20 cents dozen. One retailer sells a barrel a week. FRUIT PRICES. Fruit prices follow: red raspberries 20 cents a pint; black, 12H cents; plums 15 cents a quart; apricots 55 cents an eight pound basket, peaches SO cents a two-quart basket; blackberries and cherries 12H cents a quart; Georgie and' Texas watermelons SB and 40 cents each; cantaloupes 3 for 25 cents. VEGETABLES. Vegetable prices: tomatoes 3! cent two-quart baskets; peaa 10 cents quart; beans 15 cents a pound; cab hage, cucumbers and all the vegetable in bunches are about the same as week ago. Eggs are 23 cents a dozen. Matter of Liberality. The Boatonton: Miss Bessie Neater (cultivated)--"Her hooks are simply delightful. Indeed, I think she is the moat liberal writer I know of." Miss Hattle Bax:on (uncultivated) -"Well, I don't know. I don't think she is as liberal as Mrs. Southworth. Mrs. Southworth gives for 400 pages for a quarter every time." TWO KILLED; FOUR HURT IN WRECK Antomobile In Struck by PassenKe Train at Hnopeaton. Danville, July S.--Two persons we killed and .our severely Injured thi afternoon when a fast northbound Chi caffo and Eastern Illinois train Hoopeston struck an automobile own ed by Ben Williams of Bismarck, eon taining the latter, D. L. Osfden. banke of Bismarck, his wife, daughter mother-in-law. Mrs. Emily Standlsh and the latter's daughter, Miss AIlc Standlsh. of Salem, Ind. The women and girls were throw] about thirty feet from the crossing, while the automobile and two me: were carried almost two Mocks befor the train could be stopped. As "Williams approached the cross A Cigar with aPedigree ·The Little Rose Cigar has made good for 45 years-a record of which few cigars can boast. When you smoke a Little Rose you smoke an aristocrat--and · you know it by the flavor. 8 Ine his view of the railroad southward was ebstructea by a barn, and h« was not aware of his peril until too lat* to- avert the accident. WOMAN KILLED IN AUTO WRECK. Jacksonville, July 3.^MIss Mary Parrel. 1308 West Edwards street, Springfield, was killed last nleht wh«n an automobile in which «he was riding struck a calf and turntd turtle. Miss Parrel] had been the guest of Miss Faye Rodgers, daughter of former Sheriff Rodsers, of Morgan county, and went with a party of friends In the automobile to Winchester. DOGS AND OUR MUTTON SUPPLY Department of Agriculture News Letter.--In spite of Increasing: popularity of mutton and lamb and the high market prices for sheep there has been' no Increase in the number ar size o£ flocks In the farming states. We have only to glance at British agriculture to appreciate the fact that as land advances in value and better business- methods are adopted the place of the sheep upon farms becomes an increasingly Important one. The superfluous dog In villages and on nonsheopraisins farms constitutes a Veiy serious obstacle to the logical divelopment of farm sheep husbandry in the United States. The bureau of statistics lias recently received from Its country crop correspondents a very interesting ana suggestive set of replies to questions prepared by the bureau o{ animal Industry. One of "the questions asked for an estimate of the extent to which tha present numbers of sheep might b« Increased without displacing any other farm stork. A great many of the correspondents gav« per cent in answer to this question. Answers to this and similar questions were summarized for 36 states. In 27 states the correspondents state that th«re might be an increase of over 100 per cent In the n u m b e r ot sheep k e p t ' w i t h o u t displacing other stock. When asked to name the things that prevent more general keeping of sheep 30 states ga\e as a large majority of their answers "dogs." Six states answer "fences," indicating a lack of working capital as a hindrance to sheep raising. The total replies from the 30 states referred to are jdistributed as follows: Doge, S;G; fences, 191. price of wool, 122; miscellaneous, 63. Competent opinion seems well agreed that the dbg stands In the way of an increased supplv of one of the chief kinds of meat. In answer to this arraignment of the dog, it Is sometimes stated that the owners of sheep killed by doffs are compensated for their losses from the dog-tax f u n d of the municipality. It is true that a considerable number of counties do compensate- owners of killed sheep, but the rate of compensation practically never exceeds the actual meat value of th« animals killed. Such redress, while It may alleviate the seriousness of the sheep owner's immediate loss. II In no way conducive to the stability or extension of sheep raising. Splendid Yields Reported Over County. Tutcola Review: Tfir«h«r« h»v» been busy In the Holds of this county line* Thuridty lait ana trie yields are generally good. Andy Hartman reports a yield of thirty-three buehels, while others report from twenty-five to thirty-five bushels. Few are under tw«6ly-?iv«. The first car of new wbaat shipped from Douglas county to the Chicago market was a«nt out last 'Friday by John Slpp, the Bourbon grain buyer. Bourbon township has perhapa the largest acreage of any township In the county. Its crop Is alia of the best and there are fields that are expected to yield forty bushels per acre. (Parker A McCarty of this citv have been receiving new wheat at their elevator, and the price now li from 69 to 70 cents. The new crop throughout the country is the largest grown in years and as a consequence the prices paid are smaller than usual. However, many farmers contracted earlier In the season at 75 cents per bushel, and they were the "wise ones." BtG PROFIT FROM STRAW. Welcome Garrett of Bourbon was about the first man in that township to 'thresh. He began Wednesday of lasf week on ninety acres that averaged twenty-seven and a half bushels. This was grown on the Clif Jones farm and was one of the largest fields in the county. It was contracted at 74 cents per bushel and was delivered to John Slpp at Bourbon, being the first car to be sent from this county to the Chicago market. The straw was baled at once and sold at ¥6 per ton, Eighty tons were sold at this price, or a total of $480. It will be noted by this that the straw swelled the receipts considerably from the tract. Mr. Garrett states that the yields In that locality run from twenty to twenty- nine bushels per acre. HEAVIEST YIELD. The heaviest yield ot wheat yet reported wai that of Charles Clifford, on the Tarbos farm, which was threshed Monday. It made forty-one bushels per acre and Was contracted some time ago a t , 6 5 cents per bushel. If there are an; who can beat thli we would be glad to hear from them. The C. AV E. I. road is receiving from five to six car loads of new wheat from the C. H. D. road ev which is transferred at this stati the Chicago market. The Garrett elevators were taking wheat from eight machines at work in that locality Monday. MEANS $300,000. It Is estimated that the 400,000 bushels of wheat grown in this county will cut about $800,000 Or more In clr' culatton and thta amount ot ca«h ought to eaie the financial situation considerably. -. Charley Price has a fl«U of wheat that promises a yield at thirty-five or 4 bushels when threshed, Jouei Acaln. Christian Register:. Jones, who doesn't own a motor car, and IB never likely to. was met at the motor show by a friend, who expressed «urprl»e to see him there. "Well," eald Jones, "it's lovely once a vear to come and look at a whole mass of oars that you don't have to dodge." PRAIRIE HOME TO HEAR MRS.
