Tnn appointment of ex-Gor. I. R.
Francis, of Missouri, as secretary of
tli Interior to succeed Hoke Smith,
reaiirnrd. is o admirable one on the
part of Trepidant Cleveland. Mr.
Francis ia in all respects eminently
qualified for tbe successful discharge
of the duties of the important post to
which he baa been assigned.

new election law went into effect

will probably all be in before Christ
W. J. Dktas ia again out on a vote
making tour in New York, and the
thoasands who are flocking to hear
him everywhere he stops is indica
tive of the power of his personality
and the convincing force of the ad
vancement of tbe doctrines which
are hla convlctioos. Mr. Bryan will
leave sew lorn slate in a vory dii
rerent condition irom what it was
when he went into it. He haa revo
Iiitioaed tba entire state, and con
verted it from a stronghold of re
publicanism to one in vbich tbe
democrats nave a great deal more
than a fighting chance. In fact it
haa much the appearance of round
ing op wnera it was four years ago.
The second quadrennial convention
of democratic club ia by direction
of tbe executive committer railed to
met at St. Louis Wednesday,
Kach drmocratio club lcagae or
democratic society on the roll of tbe
national association will be entitled
one delegate for each 100 members in
good standing: but ooclub or society
will be entitled to more than live
delegatus. Wherever tbe clubs or
societies of any state or territory, in-
riuning the vistrict oi Colombia, no
leaa than 10 in number, have formed
a state association, or shall hereafter
have done so, auch association will
be entitled to 11 delegates at Iaree.
Tbe call is addressed to all popular
organisations under any name whih
supports Bryan and Sewall or fusion
tickets in behalf of the democratic
candidate for the preaidency. and
which may seek enrollment with this
association tor tbe purpose of intel
ligent ana general cooperation in the
tlrjaai Waa All Right.
The Chicago Chronicle is looking
for all kinds of things to say
oi candidate Hryan, but it waa
not always thus. The day
before the opening of tbe Chi
rago convention it conceded Bryan to
be a strong presidential possibility,
and bad this to say of him:
"S-imebody suggested Bryan and
me eoraska men itecame entnuai
astic at once. According to the men
from Nebraska William J. Bryan is
ry cieany tne rigbt candidate
They point out that until 10 years
ago Air. nryan waa a dweller in lilt
note and that he ia a native of the
Prairie state. Mr. Bryan's poatotlice

born in Salem. Marion county. Illi

Mr. Bryan admit that he would

older men in Illtnri rem em her bim
as an assistant of Lyman Trombull
and they ar favorably disposed
toward him on that account, if for no
other. The principal thing urged
against the presidential aspirations
of Mr. Bryan ia his age. He was
just one year old w ben the war broke
out. Apart from this he is a
roan with a good political record.
He was a member of tbe Fiftv-second
and Fifty-third congresses, and left a

Tbe Bock Island police department

Chief Etzel's design has been to take
it as far away from tbe esttbl sbed

is perhaps due as mucb to Ignorance
as anything else, as the extent of the

not be disgraced because of the

Bow a Great Boasiaa Banker Bought Bis
Freedom From Serfdom.
One of tbe best known banking houses
of SL Petersburg and the one to which
most American visitors to Russia carry
letters of credit is that of Messrs. Shal-
ouuine eons, tbe founder of which,
father of the present head of the firm,
owed his liberation from serfdom, 15
years before the decree of emancipation,
to a barrel of oysf rs. Old fehaloumne
was a serf belongiup; to Count She
remetieff, one of the wealthiest nobles in
Russia. Uc had frrqucutly entreated
the count to grant him his freedom, of
fering bim-tis much as $.00,000 for the
boon. But mciiey was no object to the
omit, and it gratified his pride to feel
that one of the loading bankers of the
empire was one of his serfs, unable to
niarrr either his sons or his daughters
withont his master's ecus nt. Moreover,
as serf, the hanker was iiauie to nave
his money soiaeil ami confiscated any
moment by the count, pinee everything
that belouued to a serf, including bis
wife, children and property, belonged
ipso facto to his master.
Otic day halounine, who had inst
bat very nior ling returned to the capi
tal from Od-ma, called at the Sht re
aietieff palace for the purpow of report
ing his arrival, us in duty bound to bis
Dwner. He had brought with mm a
barrel of delicious Crimean oysters for
presentation to tho count, but left them
in his carriage at the palace door until
he should have, o'jtaineel his master's
intimation that hii gift was acceptable.
On entering tl1 presence of the count
the bauker found bim. surrounded by a
party of guests and engaged iu berating
his chief butler for uetilecting to pro
vide ovsters for tla breakfast to which
they wens about to.sit down. The butler
was exitlauiiug to the count that there
were no oysters to be got in the capital

fetched tho small.bam'l of oysters which
he had left in his carriage at the door.
and laid it at the feet of his master.
As sexm. as the barrel had been opened
the count called for a pen and paper,
wrote out a declaration emancipating
both tho bauker and bis family from
serfdom, and then, bowing courteously
to the ui:ui who bnt a moment before
had U-en his slave, exclaimed, "And,
now, my dear Mr. Shalouuine will

It's a Man's Duty
To dress well. He owes it to society and to him
self. If he had to give up every pleasure in
order to be well clothed, he would be gainer by it.
A well dressed man is usually a successful man.
He has more chances in life than a shabby
fellow. The man who has his suits made by
DORN is well dressed. Only a dollar or two
more than a "hand-me down" but a world of
difference in make-up.
