Among the list are names familiar to many of otir renders as the perfection of northern summer resorts. Nearly all of the Wisconsin points of interest are within a; short distance from Chicago or Milwaukee, and none of them are so far away from the "busy marts of civilization" that they cannot be reached in a few hours of travel, by frequent trains, over the finest road in the northwest— the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway.

During the absence of three months of Rev. Mr. Cochrane of the Unitarian church at Bar Harbor, Me., his wife will attend to all his ministerial duties. Three different books have recently been devoted to Joan of Arc and a fourth is coming. Mrs. Oliphant is writing a history of the maid for "The Heroes of the Nations" series. Mrs. America Louisa Joalin of South Greenfield, Mo.', was admitted to tho Dade county, Missouri, bar last week, after passing a highly creditable examination! She is 35 years old.

Sometimes 'tis better to have loved and lost than ever to have loved anc won, A broken resolution can be mendec with the glue of, common sense, but it may not be worth while. Modern social usage decrees that wedding presents may be sent at any time within two months before the day of the ceremony. A gentleman should always be duced to a lady, not a lady to the gentleman. If you are making only a brlel call you can keep your gloves on and your hat in your hand without impropriety. Good taste would indicate that a newly married couple on their wedding tour should dress as much like other people as possible and be careful to wea,r nothing which would serve as an advertisement of their new relation to each other.

This confidence has in* duccd taore than 100,000 women to write Mrs. Pinkham for advice during the last few months. Think what a volume of experience she has to draw from t No physician Jiving over treated so many cases of female ills, and from this vast experience surely it is more than possible she has gained tho very knowledge that 'will 'help your ease. Sho is glad to have you write 'or call •upon her. You will find her a woman full of sympathy, with a great desire to assist those who are sick. If hormedi- cine is Hot what you need, she will frankly tell you so, .and there are nine chances out of ten that she will tell you exactly what to do for relief. She asks nothing in return except your good will, and her advice has relieved thousands. Surely, any ailing woman, rich or poor, is very foolish if she does not take advantage of this generous offer of assistance. Never in the history of medicine has the demand for one particular remedy for female diseases equalled that attained by Lydia E. Pinklmm's Vegetable Compound, and never " in the history of Mrs. Pinkham's wonderful Compound has the demand for it been so great as it is to-day. Is nbw, USEFUL ITEMS.

They are talking of putting on a new play of low life in London, where all the parts shall be taken by real criminals.

In order that fresh water may be alwayi on hand, pipes will bo laid undei ground, ending in fountains in the in closure, and fed from spring watei pumped in from the outside. It is proposed to lay a concrete walk just outside and extending around tin entire wall, and a Watchman on a bicycle will make a tour of inspection of the entire inclosure twice each day. The idea, If successful, will probably result in preserving certain animals, such as the giraffe, from becoming entirely extinct. Elephants will also bo raised within the inclosure. On accoiint of their] great strength it was at first thought! enclosure would bo impracticable, but.a scheme has been devised which, it is believed, will prevent them from breaking down tho walls. Forty feot within the outer wall wilt be erected a second fence, composed and built of logs driven into tho ground by a pile driver. These timbers will be about three feet apart and will bo cross-braced by a row of timbers extending from the cross-braces to the ground. This will make a very strong shie.d against which the assaults of a very large and vicious elephant will have no effect. One of the most interesting, features of the jungle will be the monkey farm. For this purpose several acres will be used. A wooden frame:will be erected extending above the height of the trees and completely surrounding the farm. Th'J framework will be covered with a network of wire,' so that the monkeys will bo at liberty to climb about the trees and feed on the fruits and nuts, but will be unable to escape. : "So you didn't get up p match between pillcerton and that pretty girl? v '^p; they lived, ju adjoining flats, you fcnpw, ond.fcad seee each othep at the win- dp \YS ewjy in. frbe mo," -" < * Judolent Ivors— J wish J Meyer fcftd Ipg tq 4,9 bttlf eat and sleep. eary Waggles— I wi> I ppuia es an,d, nalHess* kflf mftffi tnUt wlfl nff8f» , in a hand, seed plantef, "all kind! el' W&ds, a street ear* f«nd§T d! as to induce general actbpil&fh ' A dgfiee fdP opening And lighting street lamps Item the gfmina.v« H !

Washington, May 18.—Saturday's session of the American Protective association supreme council was the most interesting of the convention/ because the action of tho executive committee of the advisory board In blacklisting Mr. McKinley as a presidential candidate was reviewed. The report of the advisory board upon the action of the committee was made to the council late in the session. It was indorsement of the executive committee. It asserted, in substance, that the executive committee was warranted, in view of the evidence presented to it, in placing a ban upon Mr. McKinley. But In addition it states that a further examination of this testimony,by the full board bas convinced the members the witnesses were unreliable and that their statements were incorrect. Therefore, the board concludes, Mr. McKinley should be .placed upon the same foot-, ing, so far as members of the A, P, A. are concerned, with tho other candidates for presidential nominations ancl Should no*''" •"-—'"'"-''-'I against, >: DEBS FOR PRESIDENT, Trade and Labor Assembly at Chicago Indonea Him, Chicago, May 19.—The principal and most important business of the labor Qongress at the regular meeting held yesterday afternoon was to nominate a candidate for president of the United States, After prolonged discussion the following resolution was adopted!
