The reargument of the income tax

preme court bench.
H. W. Seymour, formerly manag
ing editor of the Chicago Herald,
and one of the most capable newspa
per men in Chicago, hat purchased the
Chicago Post plant ana building of
H. H. Kohlsaat, and will establish
iirst class democratic paper. -

The democracy and the entire city
may view with pride the retiring ex
ecutive. Mayor Medill. He has
proven a man of exceptional ability,
and his closing address will convince
all who read it that the city has been
favored with the administration of
one amply capable of the executive
la ties of a city of the size, impor
tance and continued growth that
characterize Rock Island.
Smart Mr. Schroeder, the self
constituted leader of the new conn,
nil. proposes that the appropriation
ordinances shall be provided for
next Monday night. This work
is generally left until along in
.June, and common sense dictates that
it should be and nntil the policy of
i he administration is fully outlined.
Mayor Knox may find that he is
rushing the mourners if be counte
nances the course Aid. Schroeder
proposes to carry out.
Mayor Medill's valedictory, like
bis inaugural of two years ago, is a
locument of unusual force, his final
message being, we believe, the finest
ever delivered from the executive
chair of the city. The calm, com
prehensive, dignified manner in
which he views the achievements
of the past two years, the intelli
gence and understanding shown in
the discussion of mnnicinal affairs.
are all evidences of the ability of the
man who will carry with him into
private life the hearty good wishes
and appreciation of all people, and a
recora well to be proua or.
The annual meeting of the North
ern Illinois leachers' association,
which was held at Joliet last week,
was attended by about 500 teachers.
and was an interesting and instruc
tive meeting. Prof. b. B. Hursb. of
Sterling, read a paper on "The Eth
ical Element in Literature." A num.
ber of other able and instructive pa
pers on timely topics were read by
prominent teachers. Elgin was se
lected as the place for holding the
next meeting. The following officers
were elected: President. J. B. Har

the life of the condemned man has

and yet his persistent lawyers still

"How far lawyers are justified in
resorting to these desperate methods
for getting their rascal off is perhaps
only to be measured, according to
the peculiar code of legal ethics, by
the fees they get. bnt that something
is wrong in a system that admits of
a losing case being followed so long,
simply for the fees that are in it,
cannot be gainsaid. '
It is altogether vicious, injurious
alike to the public and to the person

If any readers have ever made tbe ac

Asbestos in ita original state is a
fibrous mineral indigenous to Canada
and other places and is sent over here
in lumps like pieces of raw slate on tbe
top and bottom, while tbe sides are cov

think that nothing less than a heavy

When it roaches the factory, it is put
into crushers. These are like the ordi
nary mortar mixers that you see where
building operations are going on, and
the resulting gritty, fluffy mass is
thrown into what is termed a "deviL "
Tbe devil tears it np with sharp
prongs and then sifts tbe grit from the
fluff. The former is used for mixing
with the asbestns in other processes,
wbile tbe latter ia shot into a receptacle
that reduces it to a consistency almost
as fine as cotton wooL As it falls from
this machine it looks for all the world
In other departments the raw asbes

To believe a French writer, there are
no fewer than 4.000 women caught ev
ery year in stealing during their shop
ping expeditions, a habit euphoniously
styled kleptomania. The number of
titled ladies seized with this strange
malady while examining the fashions of
Paris, he tells us, is almost incredi
ble. Among the most recent culprits
were a Russian princess, a French count
ess, an English duchess and the daugh
ter of a reigning sovereign. As a rule,
these more distinguished offenders are
let off on the payment of a round sum
for the relief of tbe poor, and when the
shoplifter ia known to be rich tbe sum
exacted rises to as much as 10,000
franca. The police authorities consent
to this sort -of condonation. Baltimore

Why, then, cling unto life, when over the blue,

glory of God upon his wings.
If I thought as yon think, my brother, if I be

Beyond the grass and the golden lilies that
blossom over a dead man here,
I would tingle with great strange gladness
whenever a friend of mine should die;

TIN CANS AND OLD SHOES.
They Well Reward the Italians Who Baa
Them Oat of the Ash II caps.
On every dumping ground where the
city contractors of Brooklyn place their
ashes one may see constantly Italians
working hard leveling the heaps, as
load after load is deposited, and care
fully placing the tomato cans and other
castoff pieces of tinware in piles by
themselves. The contractors do not ob
ject if the householders put old cans
among tbe ashes, for this insures a care
ful leveling by the Italians at tbe
dumping grounds at no expense to the
contractors. Tbe revenue from these
cans that are collected by the hundreds
and thousands is a matter of surprise to
most persona A two horse load brings
from $6 to f 8. It takes several days of
bard work to get a big wagon load, bnt
tbe Italians don't seem to mind tbe labor
of it, for there is money immediately in
sight as the piles of tin cans grow.
They watch jealonsly their picking
grounds and sometimes make special
arrangements with the contractors for
tbe privilege of scraping and raking the
ash heaps over.
The tin cans are sold to men with
furnaces, who place tbem in a big cal
dron, and under a slow fire melt tbe tin
and solder and ran that part off for fu
ture use and sale. Almost all the tin
and solder is saved by this process and
is salable for use in making more cans
for preserving vegetables. Tbe beat is
then made intense, and the iron that re
mains is melted and cast into sash
weights. Tbe demand for these old cans
is said to be greater than the supply,
and one of the most valuable of tbe
scavenger privileges that tbe Italians in
large cities assume is that of working
over an ash damp.
Tbe Italians also collect odd bits of
leather in heaps. Old shoes of a large
size are always a special delight to
tbem. A wagon load of them is always
salable for use in making lampblack.
There are other sources of profit in ash
heaps, but tbe chief sources of revenue
to those who pull them to pieces are the
cans and the shoes. New York Sun.

A singular diarist recently died at
Vienna. His diary is an account book of
his personal expenses from tbe age of 17
to 70. During this period it appears he
smoked 028,713 cigars. Of these 43,639
were gifts. The rest cost him 3,500.
He wore 85 pairs of trousers and 74
coats and waistcoats, and his total
tailor s bill was close -j CI, 600. His
hosier's bi 11 showed 62 of very ex
pensive socks, costing about 15 shil
lings per pair; 208 shirts and "fronts,"
and 306 collars, all of which must have
been cbeap at 60. Locomotion in om
nibuses and trams absorbed 83 10s.
Tbe drink bill, which extends over 15
years only, comprises 28,786 bocks, of
which 21.361 are differentiated as half
