VICTORY FOR THE PRESS.

Irtm ANAi-oi.is, April 2.1. The supremo
court Friday released George Allen and
VT. O. Fishbaok, of thu Terro Haute
Exprebs, from the Vigo county jail,
where they were bent by Judgo Taylor
for twenty and thirty days, respective
ly, for contempt. The decision, which
was written by Judgo Olds, is concurred
in by the entire beneli. The court holds
that it is legitimate and proper for tho
press to call tho attention of tho judge,
and grand jnry, nnd officers of
the law to violations of law, believed to
hare been committed, and ask that nn
investigation bo made. This, tho court
said, had been done by tho Terro Haute
papers in this instance. The
court then reviewed tho articles
which had been printed in the
Express, and held i that they did
not cast any reflection upon the court.
Thoy were rather in the nature of a
criticism of tho grand jury. Farther
along in the opinion Judge Olds saya
that it ought to bo understood that the
public press has rights with whieli
courts have no power to interfere. It is
also recognized by him that there is a
limit beyond which self-respecting
newspapers should not pass. In sum
ming up, the court holds that the de
fendants were entitled to acquittal on
their answer, and the decision is there
fore reversed, and the case remanded
back for a rehearing.

London, April 25. Business circles sire
sin prised at a dispatch received from
the United States stating tlmt England
has intimated her leatliness to join it
conference to bring about an enlarged
use of silver. That part of the report
which states that the basis of a confer
ence wns formulated here Is regarded as
unworthy of belief. The Times Satur
day said it was not easy to tee what
"enlarged use" can mean.
The Times remarks: "A decided ma
jority of those competent to judge tc
gard the issue of notes based on silver
with great disfavor. A certain amount
of silver could be employed to inereii.se
the value of our token currency, which,
at the present price of the metal, is
overvalued to an extent considerably
greater than necessary or desirable, but
the general sense of the community is
steadfastly onposed to anything like an
attempt to rehabilitate silver.
"The result of the employment of tho
American treasury as a pig silver war
rants storehouse lias not been so sitis
fnctory as to encourage imitation."
The Daily News says that such a con
ference would not be likely to attain
practical results. The English dele
gates, it declares, would have to go into
it with their hands tied.
It further says that Mr. Ooselien, the
chancellor of the exchequer, can not
well go beyond the plan all cady pro
posed to increase the proportion of sil

COOKERY AND HEALTH.

Food Is one of the mightiest forces of
tlteuliiver.su. The manner of men and
women wu are, depends In 11 great meas
ure upon the food we eat. Hut very
few people stop to Inquire what U the
diet best adapted to tho mulntennuei' of
perfect health; they eat whatever grati
fies tho palate, or inmost conveniently
obtained, "Give us something good tr
eat," is the great cry of humanity. Our
food should1 certainly le good, lint it
should be chosen with reference to Ita
dietetic value and not by the amount nt
pleasure which it gives to tho palate:
Then would our bodies Is- strong and
jmru and full of health and we ourselves
able to fulfil the purpose of existence in
the best and truest manner. The flt
ncsHofnfood for good building mate
rial depends upon lis nutritive value,
Its digestibility and its palatubleness.
The first depends utxm the selection of
proper material, the second requisite is
mainly dependent upon its preparation,
for the best of material can be so poorly
prepared that it is totally unfit to nour
ish the system. The evils of bad cook
ery nre so manifold that It has been cal
culated that they far exceed the evils
resulting from strong drink.
With good food properly cooked, our
lives run smoothly because healthfully,
but with tnior food the reverse is apt to
bo true. So strong is the bond of union
between mind nnd body that whatever
creates 11 morbid oetlon of the bodily
functions, dwarfs and cripples the moral
and mental faculties. From this it is
evident that the proper preparation of
food is of very great importance, al
though it is one which receives but
little thought, and study. Cookery is
too often looked upon as a menial serv
ice and it is relegated to those who are
totally ignorant of what constitutes
healthful food, although they may be
able to go through the mechanical pro
cess of mixing ingredients. The proper
preparation of food involves both chem
ical and physical processes which neces
sitate careful study. Tho health and
happiness of the family circle depend
very largely upon the food served, and
what higher mission can one conceive
than to prepare tho wherewithal to
make shoulders strong to bear life's bur
dens, and brains clear to solve its intri
Hut it is often said that people have
lived and do live without giving heed to
these things, apparently assuming that
because the present. systom is customary
that it is right and proper. Do those
who are utterly earelcssof dietetic prin
ciples make the tcst of their lives and
accomplish tho utmost possible with
the talent which. God has entrusted to
them? There is a trite saying about
plain living making high thinking, nnd
1 believe the reverse is equally true
that with high living one will do very
plain thinking. It is just as easy to
furnish our tables with well cooked,
easily digested food if we only have the
knowledge and the will to do so; indeed,
if wo have thu will we will get the
It is a common notion that foods made
rich with fats are specially nourishing,
but tliis is an error. The nourishing
quality of a food depends upon its di
gestibility its well as upon its constitu
ent elements. Although fats in proper
quantities serve a good purpose in the
vital economy, its excessive use is in
jurious since it is very difficult of diges
tion. The same may be said of tlio
abundant usuof sugar. Keally rich and
nutritious foods are those which con
tain a largo proportion of tho essential
food elements in a condition in which
they can be easily assimilated. Whole
wheat bread, oatmeal, cracked wheat
and tho like are really "rich foods." In
fact they are the most perfect of foods,
since they not only contain nil tho
needed food elements in 11 form easy of
digestion but also free from deleterious
elements. Reported by Helen L. .Mnn-

also marched from tho Illinois with .six

according to one account he came by

to Niagara and joined the governor

the southern shore of Lake Ontario,
near the Seneca country. Two thou

THE ENORMOUS COST OF WAR.
An Array or 1'lRiires Tlmt Ls Simply An
tonlshhiLr. It nppears, according to the estimates
of French and German statisticians,
there have perished in the wars of tho
last thirty years '.'.r.OO.OOO men, while
there has been expended to carry them
on no less than the inconceivable sum
of Sl::,000,000,000. Of this amount France
has paid nearly $.'l.50l),000.0(l( as the cost
of the war with Prussia, while her loss
in men is placed at 155.000. Of these
80,000 were killed on the field or battle,
tttl.OOO died of sickness, accidents, or
suicide, and 20,000 in German prisons.
v hile there died from other causes
enough to bring the number up to the
given aggregate. The sick anil wounded
amounted to 477,421, the lives of many
thousands of whom were doubtles?
shortened by their illness or injuries.
According to Dr. Koth. a German au
thority, tho Germans lost during tho
war 00,000 men killed or rendered in
valid and Jfi00.000.000 in money, this
being the excess ot expenditure or ot
material losses over tho ?1.250,000.000i
paid by Franco by way of indemnity.
Dr. Fngel, another German statistician,
gives the following as the approximate
cost of the principal wars of the last
thirtyycars: Crimean war, $2,000,1)00.000;
Italian war of Ib.VJ, $:soo,000,(i()(i: Prussir-
Danish war of 1804, ?.'15,000,000; War of

war of lSiiO, flTCO.OOO.UOO; Kusso-Turkish
war, $125,000,000: South African wars,
$S,770,000; African war, ?12,250.00O;
Servo-ltulgariiin, S-170,000,000. All those
wars wero murderous in thu extreme.
The Crimean war, in which few battles
wore fought, cost 750.000 lives, only 50,
000 less than were killed or died of their
wounds, north and south, during tho
War of the Kebcllion. The figures, it
must bo remembered, are German, and
might not agree precisely with the
American estimates. The .Mexican and
Chinese expeditions cost 200, 000,000
and 05,000 lives. There were 250,000
killed and mortally wounded during thu
Kuhsin-1 urkoy war, and J5,(H)0 each in
the Italian war of 1851) and tlio war be
tween Prussia and Austria. In tho
other wars the loss of life was relative
ly less, which did not make, either tho
men or money easier to part with in tlio
more limited areas where they occurred.
