Factories all over the country are
advancing wages. The laboring men

At the age of 14 Sarah Bernhardt
was undecided whether to become
nun or an actress. She choso the

The money has been subscribed

made in Paris at a cost of $3,000.
II. Clay Mkkuitt, a seller of game
at Kewanee, is said to have accumu
lated $1,000,000 in this way, but
dame warucn itiovv says lie lias evi
dence to convict him of violations of
the game laws of the state , sutlicient
to aggregate lines of $14,000,000
against him. This feeing to bo
game instead of a lish story.
The reported frightful massacre of
white settlers at Jackson's Hole by
isannocK Indians again emphasizes
the fact that the authorities are apt
to ijc conservative to a diliatorv de
grce in dealing with uprisings of
whatsoever kind, especially on the
part of the Indians. There is little
satisfaction to bo gained from driving
a band of these devils buck into their
reservation after they have butchered
a settlement of whites, including in'
nocent women and children. The
sooner the government becomes con
vinced that the onlv good Indian is a
dead Indian, the sooner will the ad
vancement of civilization lose the
terror of these periodical outbreaks
on the part of a worthless race that
cannot be tamed. Extermination
seems the only punishment lit for
such a diabolical crime as has been
reported at Jackson's Hole.
Politic and Legislation.
. It has indeed become an unfortu
nate Mate of affairs where a contam
inated general assembly, such as
now disgraces Illinois, is so incom
petent to purge itself of its own in
lqtiities and vindicate its honor that
political parties are called upon to
reaffirm their adherence to the prin
ciples oi iieccncy anci puunc obliga
tion, runty in politics, however,
can onlv be insured by honesty in
practice, as well as of purpose, and
it therefore becomes the duty of a
party to reassert its good faith'to the
people where breach of that faith is
We are glad the republican party
of the state has awakened to a reali

been going on at Springfield, and if
the democratic party feels that its
cooperation is necessary to bring
about the proper investigation, ex
posure aud punishment and the es'
tablishnicnt of honesty on the part of
those entrusted with sacred obliga
tion, all good citizens will applaud
sucn a course but the ilrag net will.
if cleverly handled, bring to the sur-
lace a species of lish such as the re.
publicans will have the indisputable

Work on tbe state Fair Grounds.
The work of preparation for the
great Illinois state fair of lS'Jo. which
will be held at Springfield, Septem
ber 23-28, is progressing rapidly, and
the amount of work already done is
surprising to one visiting the fair
grounds for the tirst time this sea
son. The walls of the immense ma
chinery hall are fast becoming prom
inent features of the landscape, and
with each sundown one notices the
progress made in the construction of
this building, which will afford by
far the finest accommodations to ma
chinery of all kinds ever given on a
stale fair ground. Of tho 500 feet in
length of this building, 176 feet will
be enclosed, the remainder being
constructed like the train shed of a
passenger depot. Lying as it does
along the railroad track, exhibitors
in this department will be able to un
load ttieir goods directly from the
train to the platform, thus avoiding
the annoyance and expense of drav
age. The Great Dome building, the
main feature of which is tbe vast
lome which surmounted the Horti
cultural building at the World's fair,
is stretching its great arms upward
as if to embrace the upper air "itself.
Beneath its ample roof the farm and
orchard products, as well as the
llorieultural display, will find a
home, while one of the annexes
which flank each corner of the build
ing will be occupied by the dairy ex
hibit, and one will be used as the
Tho new grand stand will seat
nearly ten thousand people, and the
diniug rooms beneath it will furnish
refreshments to the thousands of
visitors on the fair grounds.
The liberal policy of the board is
evidenced in the increased amount
of premiums offered, the aggregate
being over tsl.OOO, and the number
of premiums specified is over three
hundred more than in 1894.

IN THE RUINS OF POMPEII.
Frank II. Stockton, the author of
"The Lady, or the Tiger?" con
tributes under the title of "Love Be
fore Hrcakfast," one of the most de
lightful love stories to the August
Ladies' Home Journal. The happv
motive of Mr. Stockton's storv is more
than indicated by tho charming
illustrations which . 1. Smedlev
has provided for the text. Dr. Park
hurst writes wisely and well of "The
Training of a Child," giving advice
which cannot fail to be of value to
parents everywhere. The biography
ot the number consists of a mo?
interesting sketch of "The Writer

The Forum for August an unusu
ally attractive number has for it

by Justice Henry B. Brown, of the
United States supreme court, who

Speaking of the constitution, he says
that the danger is, not that it will "be
changed, but that it will be regarded
as too sacrcu lo change a mere

New York, explains the operation
of the bond syndicate, and points out
the excellent work it has aecom
plished. Maurus Jokai, tha di-tin

extremely interesting article entitled

The first of Anthony Hope's new
scries of Zcnda stories, in MClure's
magazine for August, reciting a he.
roic love passage between tho beau
tiful Princess Osra and brave Ste
phen the Smith, is most charming.
"The girl was young, and the dream
was sweet," and the storv is in full
accord with these attractive condi
tions. The new jungle story by Kip
ling is aiso notable, only one or
two of the previous jungle stories
approach it in strength and ingenui
ty. It tells. how Mowgli, under the
shrewd direction of Kaa, the rock
python, lured the red dogs of the
Dekkan, whom the Jungle feared
above all other creatures, to a de.
siruction so complete that not one
was left to tell the tale. In the same

zinc has had the habit of publishing
a mid-summer fiction number, in
which have appeared some of the
most notable short stories that have
been written by American authors.
The present (August) issue is no ex
ception to this remarkably success
ful record. Any number of the mag.

ot contributors which includes An
thony Hope, H. C. Bunner, Hopkin-
fon smith, Kicbard Harding Davi
Octave Thanet, Noah Brooks, George

Theodore Roosevelt. The number
contains seyen short stories, six of
them illustrated by artists of the
first rank, including W. H. Hvde.
Keinhart, C. V. Turner. Orson Low
ell and others. Artistically tbe num
ber is given great distinction by the
seriej of eight full-page reproduc
tions of the pastels of Edwin A. Ab
bey, recently exhibited in this coun
try. These" represent Mr Abbey in
a new form of artistic production, and
show him master of a new technique.
Among American writers no one is
better fitted by his artistic ability to
write of these than F. Hopkinson
Smith, who shows the finest appre
ciation of the difficulties that Mr.
Abbey has surmounted.

Evidences of the Commonness of Slavery
Found on All Sides.
Evidences of the commonness of slav
ery in the time of Pompeii's destruction
are abundant on all sides. The gladia
tors were a class of slaves trained for
fighting, tcid some of tho wall scrib
blings rtier to their condition as ono of
shivery. Hero is the translation of an
advertisement painted on a vail near
tho, amphitheater :
"Twenty pairs of gladiators, paid by
Decimus Lucretius Saltius Valeus, prince
in the timo of Nero, tho son of Ca?sar
Augustus, and ten pairs of gladiators,
paid by Deciiuus Lucretius, the son of
Decinius Valeus, will fight at Pompeii
on tho 11th, 12 tu and 14th of April.
"There will be a proper hunting scene
and the awnings will be spread. Writ
ten by Clev-Eniilius Clev, writer of in
scriptions; wrote this by moonlight."
Tho gladiators' barracks were ample
for tho housing of 2,000 or 3,000 men,
aud it is a matter of record that at "lea
2,000 were encaged at oho time in the
life or death combats which stretched'
over a long festival. The actors in theso
mnrderor.3 snorts were "barbarians

wlnlo looking at this ingenious aud

that it was possiMo that tho poor wrctch

tore of an entiro city resurrected from

and means of pleasure, rrolit. comfort,

Tho Color In Irish Verse.
Of conrso tkero is no deficiency of lo
cal color in such a book. Vo hear much
of tho "Snvgarth aroou," the "Tubbcr

other things pre-eminently Irish. Now,
tho "Snggarth nroon" is a capital fish.

that tho "Tubber-iia-Scorncy" is one of
tho most picturesque cf ancieut svni-

Saxon reader, who is not familiar with
tho Irish language, is sometimes "mairc
bhun astorred" when he comes across a
poem plentifully sprinkled with Irish
expressions, with tho exception, of
course, of such a universally understood
remark as"Brgr,rrah,"orthat touching
