There is to be no reformation in
the Union cflice in the matter of
burdensome communications during
the coming year. The infant '97
came in with a load of supeilluous
anonymous trash on his shoulderr

The Union's latest political con

with one whose chief claim to dig

The Union and its staff of anonv-

should be "the only one" or none as
far as Kock Island county is con
cerned. Mrs. John R. Tanner (nee Eng

bad form to display the wedding

everv politician looking for a job is
represented among tne donors, it is
not surprising that she should ob

mansion into a department store.
Journalism has lost a capable and
tireless general in the demise of Jo
seph a. McCnllagh, of the St
Louis Globe-Democrat, affectionately
known as "Little Mac." He was the
embodiment of energy and devotion to
his work. He lived for his newspa

the affairs of tho great journal which
he had made famous, he preferred
death to surrender and so he died

TnE State Teachers' association is
in favor of tpxt books for the public
schools. It decided during its con
vention at Springfield this week to
appoint a committee of one from each
senatorial district to labor with the
legislature and endeavor to eecure
tho passage of the desire! law. One
chief advantage which the teachers
claim would result from free books
is a more frequent change of text
books, which tney sav is extremelv
desirab'.e. The law of Illinois for
bids changes more often than every

the state is said to be 20 rears.

In McClnre's Magazine for January

sented all together, as they are here,
with excellent notes giving the his

this last accomplishment she is always
an expert, especially at embroidery
unless, indeed, she attends one of the
excellent Armenian mission schools car
ried on in many towns, where she will
learn English, French and possibly her

country wherein they live. She will al
so acquire a thirst for fiction, English

generally arranged by her mother, and
nowhere are women of more importance
or hold more weight in the family coun

patriarchal establishment, in which her
sons, their wives and often her nephews
and nieces dwell. She rules ber sons and
sons' wives, the latter, perhaps, with a
somewhat severe hand, especially dur

when, except to attend church, they
may not go out, though, when tne
daughters-in-law in their turu become
mothers greater liberty is permitted
