GENERAL LORD KITCHENER.
General Lord Kitchener, the famous
British soldier who commanded the
rtroopt at the coronation In London
this week, was born in County Kerry.
Ireland. June 24, 1S20, and received
&is training at the Royal Military
'Academy at Woolwich. Since the be
gjlnning of his military career forty
preara ago he has had a part in virtual
ly all of the wars and military expe
ditions In which England has engaged
during that time. He commanded the
Egyptian cavalry in the -Ue expedi
tion in the early 'SO's and remained in
Egypt and the Soudan for ten years.
In recognition of his heroic services
In front of Khartoum he was raised
to the peerage and given a grant of
$150,000 by Parliament. Lord Kitch
ener was coramander-ln-chlef of the
Uritlsh army In the last Boer war and
later was given command of the mili
tary forces in India.
THE NEW WAY FOR WOMEN.
The Monday washing Is a small
tragedy when performed by the old
fashioned method of "rub, rub, rub,
boil a while, and then rub. Science,
by the production of a pure, clean,
white laundry soap has evolved a much
easier way soaking the clothes with
the help of Hewitt 'a Easy Task soap.
This Is much Quicker, lota easier and
costs no more than the poor, old-fash-toned
kinds. Vive cents at your grocers.
Yates on Lorimer
Mr. Richard Yates, former governor of Illinois, was an Interesting if
not Important witness before the senate committee on privileges and elec
tions. He revealed bow blithely and innocently he had observed legislative
activity when he was governor. Mr. George W. Hinman, editor of the
Chicago Inter-Ocean and a friend and adviser of Mr. Yates, "understood
that there had been a corruption fund in every legislature,' tut such a
possibility had been mentioned to Mr. Yates but once specifically, and then
he fluttered with Impulsive desires to have every legislator summoned to
an Inquiry. Reluctantly he allowed himself to be convinced that there
was no proof.
He further illustrated the happy innocence with which he adminis
tered affairs of state by relating the circumstances of the alleged attempt
to bribe the then speaker, John Henry Miller. A conference was called
to consider what should be done after Miller had told his story and Mr.
Lorimer "wandered In." Mr. Yates did not know whether some one had
asked him in or whether he had just "happened to wander in."
It was a habit Mr. Lorimer had that of "wandering in." He "wan
dered" into the street car controversy, of which this was a part, to such
an extent that the late Edwin B. Smith was given material for a most
Interesting narrative of how Lorimer sat In control of the governor and
the legislative organization working against the city.
"Mr. Lorimer wandered in." It was a habit of Mr. Lorimer. Mr.
Yates picture of him is innocent and gay. Mr. Lorimer wandered in. He
also wandered in when the legislature undertook to elect a senator in
1909. Mr. Lorimer never has been interested in anything, but it always
has been his luck to "wander in."
Further, It was Mr. Yates' happy interpretation of his own emotions
that when he ran against Senator Cullom he was "not bitter" against Mr.
Lorimer. "Not bitter, I do not think." No, not bitter merely showing
the scars on his devoted body which he bore as testimonial of his long
service. of a man who had deserted him, but not bitter.
Mr. Yates was not an important witness, but he was interesting.

WHAT OTHERS SAY
THE SUMMER FOOL.
From the New York Times.
The summer sun has hardly begun
to scorch yet, but already lessons of
exceptional worth have begun to be
taught to the summer fool. There is
nothing very novel -about the misbe
havior of the half grown hobbledehoys
who think it manliness to be ill bred
In the street cars, or who perhaps of
fend merely from exuberance of
youth. The strong arm men are gath
ering them in, and they are being
shut up for some days, as well as be
ing fined some dollars in other cases.
This is well, but not half so soothing
as the discipline of the man who
rocks the boat when there are weaker
persons aboard. When one of his type
stepped ashore Sunday a man half his i
weight "gave him his" on the point of
his jaw and he went backward into
the wet, whence he was extricated
with a boat hook. He was rash enough
to make a complaint against his teach
er of manners and discretion, and the
justice who heard what his grievance
was threatened to send him to jail. In
the opinion of the justice, "any man
who will rock a boat with women on
board, needs a lesson."
From the Columbus Journal.
It would be well if every one of
these thousand graduates would ask
himself or herself, say in ten days
from now, How does graduation affect
me? Does it give me an impulse to
move forward or a satisfaction to
stand still? Education grows or de
cays which is it doing? By that time
the youth wil be able to tell whether
he is a spirit or a clod. It is an alter
native that confronts every boy and
girl when they step from the com
mencement platform. These ideas
suggest a little self communion, a lit
tle introspection to discover what one
is to amount to in the world. Here is
the place to decide. It is the soul's is

From the Omaha Bee.
This is the day of brevity. People
demand action, simple and direct. He
who meets this demand is likely best
to succeed. It is a demand common
to most every phase of American life,
notably 6o in business. The little
mottoes. on the wall of a busy man's
office admonitory of the value of time
bespeak that. The shortened workday
proves it. The employer and employe
are one on the proposition.
From the Cleveland Leader.
Of all the institutions of civilization

the way the young man revived and
insisted on walking to the hospital.
Fifteen minutes after he was dead,

SEEKS DAMAGES FOR
A MAD DOG'S BITE
Lafayette. Indiana, June 24. The
mad dog epidemic which raged in this
city several months ago resulted in
a lawsuit, the first of the kind in the
history of the city, being filed by the
father of one of the victims against
the owner of the mad dog. Benjamin
Howitz is the plaintiff and Henry
Bruns, a saloon keeper, is the defen

daughter of the plaintiff, was

the face. The dog was killed, and
was found to be suffering from rabies.
The child received the Pasteur treat
