GREAT DECLINE IN CORN.
Chicago, 111., July 29. The following
will appear in this week's Farmers' Re

the condition of corn during the past two

LARGE EXPORTS OF SILVER.
New York, July 29. An evening paper
cays: Large shipments of silver bullion to
London during the past few days has given
rise to much comment because it has been
predicted that as soon as the silver bill was
passed this country would be flooded with
the silver of foreign countries. The actual
facts have been precisely tho reverse.
A month or so before the passage
of the silver bdl London sent over a
million and a half of ounces of
silver bullion to this country. This was
not because the Englismeu thought the
silver bill would pass, but on the contrary
because they thought it would not pass,
and they wanted to profit by the high
prices over here. Now the stream has set
m tho other way and it bids fair to con
tinue until the demand for silver here to
meet the requirements of the new silver
bill becomes greater than the demand over
ENCAMPMENT RATES AGAIN DOWN.
Kansas City, Mo., July 29. After one
day of restoration, the G. A It. rate to
Boston today fell down to 27.30 from
530 50, to which figures Chairman God
dard recently ordered the rate raised. To
day a private circular became public prop
erty in which the Rock Island, which had
been chosen as tho load to carry Kansas
veterans east, announced that the old rate
of S27.50 from the Missouri river would ob
tain until that rate was lowered by some
competing hue when the Rock Island
would oiler as low a rate as any other
road. The Wabash, which only obeyed
Goddard's restoration order today, imme
diately reduced the rate to the old figure.
It is supposed that the other roads will
follow suit tomorrow.
TEXAS FEVER IN CHICAGO.
Chicago, 111., July 20. Texas fever has
made its appearance among the cattle near
the city limits and a portion of the Twenty
eighth ward of this city, and twenty of
them have died from effects of that disease.
Inspectors of the health department have
made post mortem examination in several
cases and pronounce the disease true Texas
fever. The supposition is that the animals
contracted it from refuse which was drop
ped from railroad cars in which Texas cat
tle were being transferred into this citr.
The officers of the department say that the
only means of preventing the disease from
spreading to all of tho cattle in tho neigh
borhood is to shut them up until frost
comes next fall.

THOMAS BAILEY ALDRICH.
Something Ancrct The Atlantic's Retir
Boston, July 2L Mr. ThonSis Bailey
Aldrich, who has recently been succeeded
by Mr. Scudder as editor of The Atlantic,
had one of the most beautiful homes Imag
inable at 63 Mount Yernon street, Boston.
I had the pleasure of calling upon him
there not long since, and was ushered into
the large, did fashioned, roomy parlor, up
one flight of broad stairs, the poet's favor
ite study being on the first floor, near the
entrance. One could not be more charmed
in any place than upon entering this beau
tiful large double parlor. The very spirit
of refinement was everywhere manifest.
The mantel in each room first attracted
and strongly riveted attention, each bear
ing a large altar piece of gold, and all at
once the visitor found his fancy wandering
across the sea to their ancient home and
forming eolemn pictures of cavaliers,
monks, maids, princes and peasants who
had often made their weary pilgrimages to
the shrine of which these had formed a
The windows, too, were all in keeping
with the sanctuary, being similar to the
elegantly colored windows ordinarily seen
in churches. Books were laid about in
great profusion almost everywhere, yet
not at all with that seeming negligence so
often apparent in the homes of book lovers,
and more especially makers of books. A
volumo of Holmes' poems lay upon a table.
I took it up, opened it nnd found upon the
fly leaf nn autograph inscription to "my
esteemed friend, Thomas Bailey Aldrich,
with tho sincere regards of the author."
A splendid large volume bound in the
best morocco lay beside it. I took it up,
unfixed tho hasp9 which clasped it and
found that it was a copy of "The Poems of
Thomas Bailey Aldrich," and on the fly
leaf found that this beautiful volume
which, by tho way, was illustrated by
members of tho Boston Paint and Clay
club, was presented by him to his wife, in
the following lines:

A Story Ho Couldn't Use.
New Yobk, July 21. It has no doubt
been a source of wonder to thousands of
after dinner listeners where Clhauncey M.
Depew got all his fresh and original stories.
His supply of humorous anecdotes ha3
been practically inexhaustible for many
years, and it has seemed almost impossible
that ono small head could create all tho
yarns he knew. The other day ex-Post-nvaster

"I have got a most valuable and far
reaching lot of correspondents in all parts
of the country," replied Mr. Depew.
"Scarcely a mail arrives but brings a yarn
of some kind. Most of these stories aro
poor, some improper and many flat. But
mingled with the chaff are a few grains of
wheat. Sometimes I cannot uso a story,
even when it is 0 yard wide, all 'vool
and warranted nol to fade, because it
has a personal application. For in
stance, in this morning's mail I received
a capital thing. It appears that Sn a nnall
town in Nebraska tho corpse of an un
known man, reputed to be the father of a
wealthy citizen, was found. The citizen
was sent for to identify the remains. In
lifting the head of the dead man his jaw
fell and a Bot of false teeth rolled out upon
the floor of the morgue. Tho citizen, much
relieved, exclaimed, 'That's not my
father; he never had false teeth.' The
citizen went away, leaving the undertaker
to readjust the teeth. As he placed the
now useless grinders in position he shook
his fist in the face of iho dead man and ex
claimed angrily, 'If you'd a knowed
enough to keep your mouth shut you'd
had an honorablo funeral.' Of course I
felt obliged to my correspondent, but"

what occasion can I use such a story as
this?" E. J.

That the past week would have enabled
us to close out all our surplus stock of summer
dry goods, in this we acknowledge we over
estimated the demand or else we put too
many goods on the counters. This week will
most certainly clear us up and we most earn
estly urge our friends and their friends to
come and secure the bargains for this week.
These goods are out on the counters and are
marked at extremely low prices, far below
actual New York cost, but we feel that a
small loss is better now than a Greater one
later on. One lot of odd corsets at $S cents,
worth 1. 00; one lot of babies lace caps at iS
and 25 cents, worth 35 and 40 cents; half
wool henriettas, worth 30 cents, cut to iS cts;
a new China outing, worth 25 cents, cut to
10 cents; satines worth 5 cut to 15 cents.
Special to Gentlemen: We are closing
out a fine line of balbriggan underwear far
below their real valve, and 100 gents French
silk ties, worth $1.00, but we wish to close out
this line and they all go at so cents each.

Let him affront her in public, where every
one may see her humiliation, and nothing
he can ever do will restore him to tho good
graces of that woman. Ho might conquer
nations or rescue nunsj from nob3, only
to meet the haughty glance of cold indiffer
ence. So lam free to confess that the man
whom above all men I hate most, the man
who is my natural enemy and will alwaya
bo such as long as there are men, women
and street cars, is the driver of a surfaco
car. How often have I braved the danger
of madly driven trucks, wagons and cabs
to stand in the street and hail a passing
How often have I seen that car go roll

acknowledgment that I was In this world
The sensation of standing in the street as
you beckon to a driver, w ho looks straight
ahead, utterly ignoring you, is, boyond de
scribing. And wo are forced to look calm,
cool and indifferent. We cannot betray
our real feelings, for a woman must al
ways bo a dissembler look unruf3cd when
her bosom is torn with distraction, appear
interested when she ia Ixjred to death, and
always fit her mood to the moods of other
people. But I will confide to yoa that my
mortal enemy is tho driver of a street car.
