Many made up their minds ;hat maybe this country was getting too hot to be healthy. Then followed a period o£ ten years n which there was not a day with temperature as high as 100. We concluded we had got back into the temperate zone once more, back to stay. AIonE came 1911, with two days above the 100 mark: and we were not so sure we had been everlastingly redeemed. But 1912 did not reach 100 in thermometer. All disagreeable records were busted and blown sky high In 1913. That year had seventeen days at 100 or more, once and a half times as many as we had in all the nineteen years that preceded. No wonder m a n y thought something was happening to us. And here we are in 1914, and we are more than a little d o u b t f u l as to the record that is to be made. But it mas- be that when this visitation gets by we shall have another ten years w i t h o u t reaching the 100 mark. We shall have it if the law of averages is allowed to apply to us. In the meantime the only thing for us to be as cheerful as possible. It doesn't get us a n y t h i n g to complain; the weather is a pretty big thing that apparently pavs no attention to mere worried mortals. LIKE OLD TIMES. People who were acquainted with the court* of this state in the days when fch«y furnished real entertainment irtuet have found themselves Interested Sunday morning in the story that came from Fferraer City, by way of Clinton, telltas of th« trial of two boys for shooting big firecrackers and disturbing the peace on July 4. It was an old- tim« legal battle--doubtless by far the most successful of all entertainments put en at Farmer City in connection with. th« Fourth. First, lawyer* of best ability were secured to conduct the case. Then ttter* was a chanffe of venue, and It wa* necMaary to send out into another towmip to get a justice of the peace to yrc«!de. Three hundred people attended the trial, and of course al stayed to the finish. The pitched feature of tbe battle started at 1 o'clock in the afternoon and the last gun was fired at 11:30 that night. The two boys were found guilty by a Jury and each fined $3 and costs. The case may be taken all the way to the supreme court of the United States. The able lawyers retalned for this engagement put up the finest f i g h t cf their lives. They had been in man bigger cases, measured in dollars; bir they knew that in this instance the were called on for their very bffst There was that audience of 300, everj pers-on of them keyed to high concer pitch- A lawyer who would not do his Uest under such circumstances would the fords of the Potomac carrying plunder. VISIT STIIE'S WF 3,000 Inspect Frank Mann's Acres in Iroquois County. Chicago, July 13. -- Three thousand Illinois farmers formed themselves into an inspection committee Friday and spent a day on the larm of Frank Mann I at Gilman, Irocjuois county. Mann's farm has become to be known as I h e most productive in the state and the farmers wished to learn his methods All day long, in the hot sun, they tramped over the 500-acre tract, pulling a root here, feeling of a stalk of corn there, and scraping up a little patch of ^oil somewhere else. Said a man in an automobile, to an- o t h e r on f o o t : "Did you walk out here to this field?" "Yeah," was the reply. "So? What's the matter w i t h your a u t u ? " look on himself as cause. It was a great show; traitor to the the 300 spectators got their money's worth. It .was a taste of the way they fought lawsuits In the olden days when men were marked with vigor. This case is something that will be talked about 1n tbe Farmer City neighborhood for a saturation: ft la a style of exhibition that !» seldom run across In these degenerate days. THE I/AMB. In commenting on the heat that rras attacked, us, the reporter is moved to remark: "It takes a rmich higher tern- perattire than 104 to nnrt a people ·who ar* temperate and well ordered in their fcablU of riving." Of oonrse thia recalls the old re- ntarlc «dout the wind 'being tempered ·to the iftorn lamb. The notion is that stress is applied to those who are able to -withstand it. Possibly if we were not so temperate well ordered in our habits of Jiving the thermometer would not have got above the 100 mark. If we practice virtues and get our*ehre« rn fine training tomething i« vent along to try the metal that Is in vs. Thte i« pretty severe on some of the neighbors. Take people at St. Louis, for Instance. Ther are not temperate and well orderad in their ways of living, a« we understand the subject -- but they get caught in the strenuous program that is put on to try us and demonstrate our superior efficiency. When they come to understand this they may feel they have a grievance against us. However, we can assure them this demonstration is not a matter of our own deliberate choosing. Temperate and well ordered as we are, we are ready to quit this thing just as soon as the weather man can be induced to put on something else. HOT DAYS IN TWENTY YEARS. Sunday In this paper there was a table showing all days we have had in twenty years with a temperature of 100 or more. If one studied the showing he must have been interested, and of course puzzled. The years 1894 and 1895 show but one day each when 100 -was reached. In 1896 there was no day as high as 100. There were but two of these days in 1897; and there was none in 1S98. Four such days marked 1889, a serious record up to that time. There was relief in 1900; then came 1901 with one memorable day at 109 and one other IT IS A GOOD WORK. Chief Allen has issued orders to members of the police force to break up the habit of street l o i t e r i n g or loafing that prevails in some parts of the business section of this city. If the police can do this they will earn the gratitude of 99 per cent, of the people in this c o m m u n i t y , On some downtown blocks, on evenings when people are out, the edges of sidewalks are lined soldily w i t h men who apparently are engaged in n o t h i n g except to stare at passers and make uninvited comments. It must be about the worst possible use to which a man can put himself; and it la d i f l i c u l t to imagine another practice that is as annoying to the victims, those passing and trying to go about t h e i r b u s i n e s s . Chief Allen holds, d o u b t l e s s after consultation with corporation counsel, tiiat there is s u f f i c i e n t w a r r a n t in the city ordinances to break up t h i s l o a f - ing pest. It is to be hoped then the work will be done. This annoyance is something u s u a l l y f o u n d only in smaller cities--and it doesn't belong in cities of the size and enterprise of Decatur. For some reason it has hung on in this town long a f t e r it should have passed awav. It is all r i g h t now to do some- t h i n g to h u r r y Its delayed d e p a r t u r e .

HISTORY OF CIVIL WAR DAY BY DAY JULY 13, 18O4. General Hunter, with his union column, after forging across the West Virginia mountains at the feverish call of defenders in Maryland, established communications with General Sigrel, who had regained possession of Harper's ferry. Other union troops were hurrying into Maryland from all directions and the confederate raiders began disappearing from the state, crossing all pices of the Prairie Fanner, a fai m ton street. The services were c o n d u c t - eil by Rev. J. P. Mills, pastor of the First B a p t i s t c h u r c h . The m u s i c was f u r n i s h e d by Miss Clara Schwab and Miss Kva C o b e r l y .

Many tlnds of diseases can be introduced into he human system by infected milk, and on this account the greatest pains- aking should be exercised in every household to see that it is safeguarded rom the moment it is left by the mllk- nian until the time It is used for food. The-Unlted States department of ag- iculture hag recently issued a bulletin w a r n i n g housewives to beware of unclean m i l k . A very brief exposure .o summer heat, declares the bulletin, makes milk u n f i t for use. It should put I n t o the refrigerator just as soon as delivered. When this is im- ossible, It us urged that the housewife provide a box with a l u m p of ice Into w h i c h the jar or jars may be set. If the refrigerator Is built into the ir-use, and has an outside opening, t b e b u l l e t i n urges that the milkman be provided with a key of this outside door so t h a t he may set the milk into the refrigerator. If this Is done the n-ilk need not be allowed to remain on the back porch for an hour or two until someone In the household get up to t a k e it In. The following suggestions s made to housewives in regard to the care that should be exercised in opening the bottle of milk: "Before removing the cao from a bottle of milk, the cap and the neck t f the bottle should be washed and carefully wiped w i t h a clean cloth. The rap should not be pushed down into the milk. It may be easily removed w i t h a sharp-pointed instrument without i n j u r i n g the contents. The bottle when once open should be kept covered and the milk should be kept In the c i i g i n a l bottle until it Is used u p The original cap should not be replaced, but instead an Inverted glass nay be put over the top of the bottle. The bottle, when not in use, should of course, always be left in the refrigerator, and any milk that has been poured from it i n t o another vessel should not be poured back. Onions and other foods having a strons odor« especially during the hot weather, verjn easily impart their distinctive smell t9 milk that IB left uncovered. Thl» I* an additional reason for always keep-* ing milk covered receptacle." To meet the housekeeper's need of al sufe cover for milk bottles, there has recently been placed on the market^ a device consisting of a rlnp of Ger* man silver Into which has been placed^ a cover which can be opened with a little thumbscrew. This fits entirely around the top rim of the bottle 08' m:llc and Is a very excellent as well. as a very good looking little device.- It Is urged that the greatest watch, fulness should be exercised over tha milk jars in summer in any household where there Is infectious sickness. No milk bottle which has been delivered to a household where there is such| sickness should ever be returned to the milkman without first being boil. rj, that is, put into cold water w.hlchj must then be brought to the boiling point and kept b iling for fifteen, niinutes. A still better wav, however/ is not to allow the dealer's milk td come into the house at all. Instead, set ut pitchers or covered receptacles and have the milkman pour the milk Into these. But even if no Infectious disease eu isls, reasonable care should be exercised In keeping the milk bottles clean. No other liquid should be temporarily put into the milk bottles while thesl are in the housekeepers' possession. Af soon as the milk is emptied out of! them, they should be washed out ir« cold water and afterward In warm water and returned to the milkman in) a clean condition. It would seem that every housekeeper of intelligent should be familiar with these facts, but the illnesses which occur with each returning summer as a result of Infection carried by milk and milk bottles make one realize that a frequent repetition of these facts Is necessary, LAURA LEONARD. gives as his reason for p u t t i n g Beeler's resignation Into effect, that the o f f i c e r was derelict in his duties. The mayor has made no a p p o i n t m e n t of a night policeman to succeed Beeler, and will not do so for the present. STEWARDSON TAX LEVY.
