The work ol improving the Mississippi
river is not of course a very charming suh-
ject for the contemplation of eastern people.
rhelSew Yorkers are jealous of any new
route to the sea which will divert from
thcin a part of the business of the interior.
They have sought to obstruct the process of
securing appropriations for tho Mississippi
Wo l.elievu that opposition in the east
will bo useless. The west ami southern ami
northwest are too strong. The people of
the Mississippi valley are realizing that
they have a pathway to the ocean which
needs but to be properly improved to make
it the greates chcapener of transportation
from the interior to the sea board. They
have noted that the sum of about f 20,000,
000 has been given since the foundation of
the government for the improvement of the
Mississippi and all its tributaries, while
1100,000,000 have been appropriated in
cash to the railroads ami about f 200,000,
000 in land, and nearly $100,000,000 have
been appropriated for harbors on the sp.
coast aud northern lakes. The discrimina
tion is intolerable. The great central river
was intended for the commerce of the in
terior, which contributes three-fourths of
the export' of the United Slates. This
deeper appreciation of the advantages of
river highways as cheapeners of railroad
freights is working a firmer purpose among
the people that their congressmen should
properly represent their wishes at Washing
ton. The Mississippi river commission have
begun their work, and they must be sin
taini d. The appropriation for that pur
pose must be separated from the river and
harbor bill. It must not be mixed up
with the inferior streams. It takes pre
ee'dence. Dr. 1. 1. Hayes recontly delivered a lec
ture in New York on the danger to which
that city is exposod from tho tiltizttion of
the Mississippi river as a national highway,
The New York Horld, in its report of the
lecture, sail) :
''The first point made by the lecturer was
that the drift of commerce has, in all ages,
been along the ureat waterways. The pro
ducts of any region naturally were drawn
out by way of tho river that flowed through
it, and large cities sprang up along its
course. The Indus, the Euphrates, the
Ganges aud tho great rivers of China, that
support a population of 400,000,001) souls,
were cited in this connection. The most
surprising example of the course of traffic
running across the natural waterways wns
presented by tho United States. The grain
and othei products of the vast region known
as tho valley of the Mississippi, 02-1,000
square miles iu extent, were being drawn
eastward to New York instead of going
down the Missouri or the Mississippi, as it
might he. expected to. New York was an
artificial city commercially speaking
and owed its commercial supremacy to tho
A. very significant admission that. Dr.
Hayes further said that unless New York.
made tome extraordinary exertions to keep
, her place her commercial wpreraacy would
oon be a thing of the past. He advisd
the deepening and widening of the canals,
so as to accommodate ships, and the in
crease of dock facilities. These are wise
suggestions. It is mathematically certain,
bower, that a large portion of the grain and
other agricultural products of the west will
one day go down the Mississippi river for
shipment to Europe.

Recipe to Subdue a Husband
Mr. and Mrs. Topnoody wor getting
ready to go out ami call on a friend Hie
other evening, and Mrs. T., desiring to
look well, was arranging herself in &
great variety of color. Topnoody no
ticed it, and began to comment. Said
he: "Mr. Topnoody, 1 think a woman
of your age ought, to wear more sub
dued coWs." "Oh, do you?" was tho
response. "What would you nggest
a becoming to your angel wife?" "I
think a black dress ia always simple,
tasteful and becoming." "Indeed?"
"Yes, indeed." "Well, then, To
noody, suppose you die and leave me
widow, so that I can wear the color
you think most becoming to me. Of
course, you can't sen me in il, but it
would bo such a pleasure and comfort
to inn to know that I was pleasing my
poor, dear, dead husband." Thein
.Mrs. Topnoody smiled in such a very
satisfied way that Topnoody concluded
his suggestion were possibly too pre

his necktie, while Mrs. T. dislribnted
