Departed in Haste.
The other day a very nice young
lady called at the Courier office. They
will drop in occasionally, you - know,
to " jolly y the force a bit. Well, this
one had visited some' little time and
had twice remarked that perhaps she
had better go, without actually get
ting started. A' late copy of the
Atchison Globe, still in. its wrapper,
was lying handy and the young lady
picked it up and commenced to beat
upon the desk with it. Without a
thought for the consequences she was
requested to tear ' the wrapper .from
the paper and look in the first column
of the first page to see if she could
not find some good advice. The con
tents of this particular paper were
unknown but it was known that the
famous "Globe Sights" are always
placed in the position referred to and
the suggestion was made at random
with a wide chance that something
specially to the point might be en
countered. The young lady did as re
quested, took one brief glance at the
place designated, made a wild dash
for the door and was gone. After she
had departed the cause of her haste
was discovered. The first thing that
she had found .was this paragraph:
"The woman who goes visiting never
knows enough to go home." Stafford
Courier. - ' - .
The story' of the so-called .surplus
at the close of the last fiscal year is
told by a writer in the Louisville
Courier-Journal in this way: ; "The
treasury report for the last fiscal year
shows that the receipts, in round num
bers, were $541,000,000, against $560,-
000,000 in the preceding year. The
expenditures were $538,000,000, as
compared with $506,000,000 in the pre
ceding year. - Receipts from customs
decreased $22,000,000, those from-in
ternal revenue increased $2,000,000,
and miscellaneous receipts over $1,-
000,000. The net result is a decrease of
revenue of about $19,000,000. ExpjDdi-
tures increased $22,000,000. Yet a sur
plus of over $13,000,000 is figured out.
The surplus is obtained by leaving put
some large expenditures. ' The sums
paid' for the Panama canal and the
loan to the Louisiana Purchaseexpo
siticfb are kept out of sight in this
statement, as not being ordinary 'ex
penditures of the government. ' How
ever, this money is gone, never to re
turn, except the small loan to the ex
position, and the fact is that expendi
tures exceeded receipts by $41,000,000.
That makes the deficit in the revenue
for the past fiscal year, and when the
political exigencies of the day, which
are supposed to demand another
statement, have passed, it will so ap
pear in the reports. It is considered
good politics' at this time to frame a
pretended surplus, although the fact
cannot be concealed-that there was a
The Ottawa Herald tells of a farmer
calling on a certain merchant in that
town with an itemized list of goods.
He had looked over a mail ; order
house catalogue and found the goods
would cost him $24, and he was willing
to pay that amount.. One standard
article in the catalogue was very low
and he supposed the same cut had
been made on everything. The merchant-figured
the bill, giving his reg
ular prices, aud it amounted to $22.
The' mistake the merchant was making
was in not advertising prices.
The vault door of the" national
treasury department "' at ' Washington
got caught one day last week and the
secretary had to send to New York
for experts to openit. He wanted to
use $125,000,000 that, morning. It is
generally much easier to oph that
door than to shut it.

Fifty Bushels Per Acre.
The best yield of wheat so far re
ported this 'year is fifty bushels per
acre, raised by Lewis Thomas, south
west of town. Mr. Thomas had ten
acres on the Carlisle farm down there
and it yielded him 500 bushels, ma
chine measure. It was Russian wheat,
raised from, imported seed. " Mri
Thomas says he was greatly sur
prised at the yield. He expected about
25 bushels but was not looking for 50.
He will sell the wheat for seed. Staf

For some time past the government
scientists have been experimenting
with a view to discovering, if possi
ble, what foods are really nutritous
and what are merely health foods.
The experiments were made upon sol
diers and the discovery" made that
borax is an unsafe substance for the
preservation of meats- and' other
foods. The human appetite rejects
borax and boracic acid after a while,
and notifies the subject to quit and
eat fresh meat and vegetables before
he has really been affected by the
substances as actual poisons. That
is, the palate rebels before the stom
ach is affected. If continued, the. use
of preserved beef causes distress in
tbe digestional tract, congestion in
the head, nausea and loss of weight.
It is advised by the experimenters
that the use of borax in preservatives
be discontinued," or, at least, that em
balmed food be plainly marked and
sold as such. Paraffin is worse, and
that also should be excluded. Why
not recommend that all foods and
drugs be pure? Bryan's Commoner.
The new . $3,000,000 hotel on Fifth
avenue, New Yfrk, built by the Astor
family, and called the St.. Regis,
wants a bar room very b'adly, indeed,
but as the front door is within 300
feet of a Presbyterian church, it has
been closed and a side entrance will
be utilized. This is the hotel which
will not print the prices of dishes
served on the menu, but will charge

the patron's purse.
