As expected by all who have given more than passing attention to Illinois politics. Governor Dunne. Mayor Harrison and Senator Lewis have come out in a statement in which they ask Democratic voters of the state to support Lawrence B. Stringer for senator Jn the September primaries. Thus there :s further narrowing down of the con- tost to Mr. Stringer and Roger Sullivan of Chicago. It has been understood by many for nearly a month that the three men mentioned might be expected to take this action. Some who were candidates also had a clear understanding of the probabilities in this matter; they anticipated it by Fretting out of the lice. Koger Sullivan when here a -.veek ago apparently felt sure the three would take this action. Concerning its effect, he had practically no comment to make. However, he seemed to realize fully that the race was narrowing down to himself and Mr. Stringer. The governor, the Chicago mayor and the senator throw their support to Mr. Stringer because they regard him as the most l.kely of down-state candidates. They are at pains to say they do not wish to be understood as "detracting from the qualifications of other downstate candidates." but they pick Mr. Stringer out because he is the one who is most lik»ly to get the votes necessary to defeat a Chicago candi- It took the three gentlemen a long while to come out w i t h this statement. At least some of them had been urged to this course months ago; and it was expected' they finally would have to come to it. They might have done as much a month or two months earlier without violating the proprieties anymore than they do by taking action now. And there ie further understanding that within a very short while, possibly by the time this gets to the reader. William J. Bryan will have taken a stand along with the governor, the Chicago mayor and Senator X.ewis in favor of Mr. Stringer. And Mr. Brian will pick Mr. Stringer for the reason Mr. Bryan believes Mr^Stringer Is the only downstats candidate who has a fighting chance to win In primary. People living here In Illinois had no trouble six months ago to pick Mr. Stringer as the only downstate man with a possible chance to win the nomination. It took the "heads of mess" a long while to get nround to a realization of the situation. And from this time on this senatorial nomination campaign should be a right lively a f f a i r . Mr. Stringer will be on the. ground In person most of the time, and he will have many things to say that will interest voters. Doubtless by this time Mr. Sullivan realizes he has a fight. OUT THE OTHER SIDE. They seem to be going some In the i sport line In England. There is a 1 twenty-round boxing match at the Olympla club In London this week, the principals coming 1 from America and France. London is much Interested in I t h l s and press dispatches tell that ministers are buying ringside seats. | Of course one Is reminded of the i story that came from Paris a short time since, when Jack Johnson had his j fight. Parisian society went to that event In full evening dress. It was treated after the fashion of a presentation of grand opera. Members of the government were on hand to get little for their money. And it is noted that more of our Americans are going over to the other side of the water to get action. Harry Payne Whitney was on hand at Newmarket in England on Wednesday of this week with three race horses that he bred in this country. Mr. "Whitney got firsts with two of his entries, and he got a second with his third horse. How did Whitney happen to trouble himself to breed race horses on this side? He must have known when he did It that he would have to go to Europe to get a race. But he is game. and perhaps racing is In his blood; anyhow, he bred the horses, had them trained and then crossed the pond and made fully as good a showing as a reasonable man could ask. What happened to our ball team at Quincy. Maybe It got stage fright when that rain was put on Sunday. We are not acclimated. Beverldge and McCormick are coming to town the evening of July 23; and surely tha,t ought to bring more rain. That attack of baseball worries that afflicts Danville seems to be something that isn't cured while one waits. TEN YEARS AGO TODAY IN DECATUR Howard Krigboum Entertains Chicago Lad. IT WIM/ BE DONE. There is announcement that two daring Americans will soon attempt an aeroplane flight across the Atlantic ocean in a craft called the America. They think they can do the ttirn; at any rate they are willing to take the chance. It is noted that an aeroplane man on th° other side of the water comes along with a forecast of failure^in this proposed attempt. He has been in the air a good many times and can lay claim to being an expert. He is sure flight can't be made at this time. the He seems to think it will be many years before it Is successfully accomplished. Well, that flight across the Atlantic will be done before a great while. "There are many who think it can be done, and there are birdmen who are willing to try. There was a time when any of us would have been justified in discounting programs laid out by these men; but they have been going ahead and making good. In the development ^f this art a good manv lives are sacrificed each year; but this doesn't cause others to hold back. Perhaps the nerviest men the world has ever »e\n are those who have put fly- JULY 16, 1004. Mr and Mrs. W. H. S u f f e r n left for South Haven, Mich., for the summer. A new rule was adopted by the Illinois Central required that every car ' bhippcd over the line must be weighed on the company's scales. Owing to a raid upon the place of (7. w. Cessna, it was the expressed opinion of local gamblers t h a t all gaming had been smudged out. Harry Hardy was pitching great ball and lots of it on the Decatur team. There was published in The Review a group picture of B. O. McReynolds. his wife and sisters and a recital of the story of their migration from Kentucky in 1S64. It was moving day of all Wahash officials into their new quarters on tho second floor of the new passenger station. On Wood street, George Hunt opened up revolver fire upon Al Hedenberg, who took to his heels and fled with a hole in his coat tail. HISTORY OF CIVIL WAR DAY BY DAY DOING ·WELL EXOtGH. It appears at this time that we are not to have a garbage ordinance. Commissioner Kobbins Informs us there is no demand for such an ordinance. At one time and another a good deal has been mentioned about the matter in council meeting and in the papers; and yet no one has gone to Mr. Eobbins to ask him to vote for the measure. Perhaps it Is much the same way with other members of the council. It appears we are getting along quite well with the situation as we now have it. Those who wish to have garbage hauled away from homes can get the service at a dollar a month. Of course those who don't want garbage service are not asking for an ordinance. The ·harge now mads is considered a reasonable one, the service Is thought to be satisfactory; and a man can take It or let it alone. That reads like something that is q u i t e good; and there is the old adags that warns us to "let well enough alone" This is the view the city council is taking. Of course this can't continue indefinitely. The c!ty now has 40,000 people, and this must be g e t t i n g near to the point where It will bo advisable to rto something officially about garbage. But for the present practically all seem pleased to continue as we have been doing. JVLY 10, 18W.

TOO DIGNIFIED. -- Senator Cummins of Iowa is Inclined to the. notion that no Republican should be forward In seeking the nomination of his party for the presidency In 1915. It Is his notion-that the candidates should keep themselves in a "receptive" condition only, leaving It to the delegates who -will gather In national convention to pick a standard hearer. This advice. If followed, win Introduce somethintf-'new in Republican politics in the country. Heretofore there have been candidates who were not at all back-ward about saying they wanted the nomination. And as a rule the nominations did not go to men who did not seek them. II a man wishes to become president In this country he would better speak up and say as much. There, are a hundred million people here, and unless a man will speak up for himself how is he to be discovered? And what Is Senator Cummins going to do about popular presidential primaries, in vogue in several states? How is anybody to get the delegates from Illinois unless he makes a primary noiso that can be heard the en- tlrt length of the state? They recognized Mr. Webber's handwriting on th» card that accompanied the bouquet sent to Judge W. K. Whitfield; and it happens one can be surer of Mr. Webber's handwriting than of his photograph. He Is a. man whose work on a typewriter can be recognized clear across the room. GOODMAN BAND CONCERT TONIGHT Will Open With "America;" Audience to Sins. The concert by the Goodman band in Central park tonight will begin at S o'clock, and will open with the national anthem, "America," and the entire audience is expected to join In singing it. Every American citizen who has any music in his heart is supposed to know tae words of this inspiring sons'. Tf he doesn't It is high time he -\\a? learning" them. Strange though It may seem, while the words are altogether American and thrill the heart with love of country, thi melody Is that of the English national anthem, "God Save the K m ^ " The words to "America ' were \viitten by Dr. S a m u e l F. Smith. They fit so perfectly the air of "God Save the King," which was familiar to ev- erj body, t h a t words and melody became inseparable and have so remained. For the benefit of those who have f o r gotten the words to "America," they are reproduced here; MY COUNTRY. 'TIS OF THEE. Some of the ladles are willing to serve on Juries, they tell us. But how are vr to arrange- with the lawyer for the defendant to get them accepted? My country 'tis of thee. Sweet land of liberty, - .Of thee I sing-. Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims' pride; From overy m o u n t a i n side, Let freedom ring' My n n t l v e country thee, Land of the noble free, Thy name I love. I love thy rocks and rills, Thy woods and templed hills; My heart with nplure thrills Like t h a t above. Let music swell the breeze, And ring from all the treea Sweet- freedom's eong; Let mortal tongues awake, Let all that breathe partake, Let stonB their silence break, The sound prolong. Our fathers' God to thee, Author of liberty, To Thee we sing. Long: may our land be bright With freedom's holy light; Protect us with Thy might, Great God, our King. ALIENISTS CALL WAR ON ALCOHOL Convention Holdgt Llqnor Canse of Insanity and Degeneracy. Chicago HeraJd --War on alcohol was declared yesterday by ths national convention of alienists and neurologists In session at the Hotel L,a Salle. Not only was tha vote unanimous, Imt thero was no attempt to discuss what was declared to be the most stringent set of resolutions evor adopted on that subject by a body of reedical men. Not satisfied with declaring alco- hi responsible for a large proportion of the world's Insanity epilepsy, fee- I ble-mindedness and "other forms of irental, moral and physical degeneracy," the resolutions recommended that state legislatures prevent traffic in alcoholic liquors; that physicians in- it'.ate ana carry on a public education of the public as to alcohol's "deleteri- ouo effects," and practically pledg-ed t h e medical profession to take the van in seeking legislation for the extermination o£ alcoholic liquors. Dan Brown, one of the "fresh air" children from Chicago who arrived in Decatur yesterday afternoon, is the guest o£ Howard Krigbaum on South Main street. This is the second season for Dan as a fresh air guest of the Kiigbaum home and his migration to t h i s same spot for the second time was not a mere coincidence or a freak of chance. VISITED HIS HOME. Mr. K r j g h a u m two weeks uso visited Dan's home in the stock yards district of Chicago and also called upon the Associated charities, asking that Dan tc sent back this summer. The request was compiled with, for the charity workers arc glad if theii flesh air wards make urh a favorable impression that t h e i r entertainers want them again. Mr. Krigbaum has kept Ui touch w i t h Dan d u r i n g the year. Last winter he f u r n i s h e d tho ooy with clothing, outer garments, underwear and shoes. EIGHT IX FAMILY.

I m t is e^ ery inch a boy and his summer -visit to Decatur the greatest thing In his life Charles M. Miller Told Her When She Arrived Home. William Miller went to St. Louis Wednesday afternoon on account of the death of his brother, Charles Hilton Miller, whose suicide was mentioned in Wednesday's Review. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Miller took carbolic acid Tuesday night while his wife and two little boys were at a moving picture-show, and when they came home he met them at the door and told his wife what he had done. CALLED AMBULANCE. Her screams attracted a policeman, who called an ambulance, and Miller was h u r r i e d to the city hospital. His wife fainted In the ambulance and did not know of her husband's deatii till after Fhe was taken home. Mr. Miller died on the way to the hospital. He was thirty-one years old. The family lived at 4233 Gibson avenue. HAD BEEN DRINKING. Mrs. Miller Eald that her husband had been d r i n k i n g heavily for several days, and that was the only reason she could give for his taking his own life. Miller left a note addressed to his brother, Roy Miller, 4150 Chouteau avenue, in which he asked his brother to take care of his two little boys, Roy and Irvin. 'CUT IT OUT," SAID DAN SULLIVAN 011 Moke Me," Sold Pryczynskl, and I Arrest Follovra. Frank Pryczynski, twenty-two years old, a coal miner living at 102S East Main street, was arrested bv Deputy Sheriff Dan Sullivan Wednesday night on a charge of being drunk and disorderly. Pryczynski stopped in front of the home of the deputy sheriff on North Morgan street, and it ib charged, « a s using some mighty bad language, w hen the officer called to him and told him to "cut it out." Prvcznski told him to rome out arc: m a k e him, without k n o w i n g who THURSDAY QUESTION COLUMN CANTDIE0 CHERRIES. Dear Miss Leonard--Would be grateful if you would some times give a rule for making candied cherries. I think they would be much cheaper than those we buy and should like to make some at home.--Louise S. Homemade candied cherries are not difficult to make and, are usually excellent in flavor. I should warn you, however, not to expect the bright color of the commercial cherries. Dark cherries such as the black hearts or blngs, will not have a good color. They will be dark and heavy. The light colored cherries can be given a certain amount of color by canning them !n a syrup which is tinted brightly with red fruit juice, or with colored paste or the color which comes in some packages of gelatine. Select large, red cherries, remove the stones and weigh the fruit, far each pound of stoned fruit allow one-half pound Cone cup) of sugar. Put the sugar in a pan with just enough water «r fruit juice to dissolve it. If the cherries are quite sweet, a little lemon Juice or citric acid will be an improvement A few kernels from the cracked pits may be added to the syrup for flavor. Cook the syrup to the "heavy thread" as for icing, then add the fruit. Bring to a boil, boil one- minute, then set aside over night. Repeat the boiling up and standing over night until the fruit looks clear and transparent and the syrup clings closely to each cherry. Lay the cherries on a sieve or waxed paper in a warming oven or warm place so that the surface may dry a little, then roll them in granulated sugar and pack in boxes with a sprinkling of granulated sugar to keep them from getting sticky. Another way is simply to let them dry a little longer on tho surface, after taking from the heavy syrup. Roiling them in sugar however, is easier and quicker, though it does not give the "glace" finish. Some makers drain them from the heavy syrup, dissolve a little more sugar in the latter if necessary and boil it to the candy stage, then add the cherries and stir violently, until 1 the syrup candles around them. Othe* stone fruits may ba candied in th» same way. / TO MAKE LETTUCE CRISP. Dear Hiss Leonard--I often have to throw away half a head of lettuce because it gets so wilted. There are only two in my family and I cannot use a, whole lettuce at once. Is there any way it can be kept fresh.--Young Housekeeper. It is quite easy to keep lettuce In crisp condition. As coon as it is delivered to you, wrlni? out a piece ofi cheese cloth or any piece of clean muslin in cold water, and -wrap t h i s around the lettuce. Do not wash the. lettuce as it will decay in spots at once if you do. Put the bundle next to the ice and it will keep for £. week. When you want to make a salad for dinner, take off as many leaves a3 you wish in the morning, wash thesa carefully then thoroughly shake off the- drops of water and put them back in, the ice box in the dish on which they are to be served. In two or three hours they will be very crisp. The tnsida leaves frequently can be used without this washing and crisping. SUMMER SQUASH. Dear Miss Leonard--Please tell ma how to cook summer squash so that it will not be watery. I cannot seem to* make mine taste right.--Young Housewife. I always cook summer squash in a bag. To begin with the squash must be reasonably tender. Cut the squash up, seeds and all, unless the seeds have grown a little hard. The pieces may be two or three inches in size. Put them into a cheese cloth bag and tie the bajy with a string. Then put on to boll in salted water. Boil until the squash ig all soft and pulpy. Then take Uie bag out and squeeze and press the squash, until the juice is practically all squeezed out of it. Now open the bag and put the squash into the serving dish. Pour over it a little hot cr.^am on "top of the milk" and add a generous a m o u n t of butter with salt and pepper to taste. Try this method and I t h i n k you will- have squash that tastes r i g h t LAURA LEOXARD. . he was talking to.
