As soon as the wires are properly

A Michigan editor says the coun
try publishers should ask their rep
resentatlves in the legislature to
favor and support a measure, mak
ing it a crime, punishable by tine or
imprisonment, for a subscriber to a
newspaper to habitually lend his pa
per. While it is scarcely possible for
such a measure - to become a
law, newspsperdom says, every
publisher will admit the se
verest punishment should be vibited
upon the habitual lender and bor
rower. A Word fro ra Baford Post.
Rock Island, Jan. 39. Editor of
The Akgis: At the session of the
general assembly of the state, held
four years ago. a law was passed
providing for Ihe relief ot indigent
soldiers or sailors or their families,
tho aid to be extended through the
administration of G. A. K. posts,
where such posts take upon them,
selves the responsibility of the law.
John Buford post qualified in this
respect by adopting a motion assura.
ing the responsibility, as also did
Graham post, ot Moline. and Lyford
post, of Port Byron. The different
posts referred to came before the
board of supervisors, and have asked
and received at different times, as
circumstances required, appropria
tions ot money to be used tor such
relief. This money comes out of the
county fund, and every citizen of
the county, who pays taxes, helps to
pay for their relief. The first arti.
cie that appeared in your paper. In
dicated that the monevto be derived
from the aale of tickets for the rink
entertainment would be used for the
relief of the old soldiers. It was this
that prompted John Buford post to
publish the official notice it did.
The relief extended through the
board of supervisors is managed by
the relief committee of the post, and
every case, when investigated by
aid committee and found worthy,
relief is extended at oace. Con so
quently. John Buford post feels that
the public should not be called on
these hard times for more aid. John
Buford post, G. A. B . was or
ganized in 1883. and it 9 has
the honor, as an organization
of always having lived np to its ob
ligations. John Baford Post also
hold a sacred the memory of that
patriotic and courageous soldier.
Gen.-John Buford, whose name It
has adopted, and it would not do an
act that would cast any reflection oa
the name of so brave a man.- liana
ager Collins, of the rink is enpared
la the laudable enterprise ef getting
np what will be no doabtan interest
ing entertainment, and if the money
is to be devoted to ether purposes
or uio uiu eviuiera, it is wui rigm,
and every member of John Baford
Post will commend him for his inter
act fan their behalf. As to the article
that appeared la your paper Tuei
dav evening, the name ot the com
mander of the post was signed by the
adjutant m is cos to maty when the
' u ananas, j, . xna articla
in question was written by' the per
manent committee on Memorial hall.
C. B. Knox Chairman.
The post desires Tnx A bo i s to
say in this connection that people
having relics will confer a favor
by sending them to the com
mittee, as it is desired to construct
the cabinet to accommodate them.
Molasses Coine; Out.
"The old fahioneil molasses is rapidly
I'.sappcaring as an article of commerce,"
laid n prominent grocer, "and in its
place have come a number of simp?,
which uro more costly aud by no means
as satisfactory, especially to the little
ones, who delight, as we did when wo
were young, iu having ' 'lasses on their
bread. ' - .Most ct the molasses goes into
tbe distilleries, where it is made into
rum, for which, notwithstanding, tho
efforts of our temperance workers, the
demand is constantly on the increase,
especially in tho New England states
and for tbe export trade. The regular
drinker of mm will take no other liqnor
in its place if bo can lu-lp it. It seems
to reach the sprit more dir-ctly tbim any
other dram. The dark . brown sugars
have also disappeared, aud they aro
uovt-r likely to retarn, owing to tbn
niethotlri cf boiling aud tho manufacture.
Urauulatcd sugar i of tlio same compo
sition, as far as (acchariue qualities are
couerrued. as loaf, cut loaf, cube aud
crashed and differs from them only in
that its crystals do not cohere. This is
because it is constantly stirred daring
tbe process cf crystallization. The lighter
brown sugars taste sweeter than tho
white, for the reason that there is eoruo
molas..s in them. '
"Housekeepers have difficulty theso
days iu Ending coarse, dark sag at,
which are always preferred for use in
putting np sweet pickles, making cakes
and similar ns. As they cannot get
brown sugar auy more it may be well
for them to remember that they can
simulate brown sngar by adding a tea
spoonful of molasses to each quarter of
a pound (if tho whito granulated sugar.
This combination does ns .well iu all
household recipe that call for brown
sugar as the. article itself, and, besides,
it saves them a great de cf hunting fcr

disappeared from tho market." Wash

"Talk about your dog stories," said
a prominent porting man the other
day. "I saw something oat at Cutoff
lako which beat anything I ever beard
of. I was out tliero hunting naipa aud
saw a man riding aroand u horseback,
and iu front of bim was circling an
Irish setter. As the fellow did not bavo
any gun, my curiosity was aroused to
know what he was doing, bnt I sup
posed ha vial simply breaking his dog.
In a lew minutes I saw him ricao np to
where the dog was on a dead stand, and
the liorseniuu proceeded to jab a pole La
was carrying down into the grouud,
and. bringing it np. took .something off
the end or it. Aly curiosity was greater
than ever, and. circling around, I came
np with the horseman aud usked bim
what be was doing.
'Hunting fivgrt,' was the reply.
" 'Wbatis the dog doing?" mid I.
" 'Hunting frogs,' was tho laconio
' 'You don't mean to tell me that
the dog will set the frogs, do you:'
" 'I don t mean nnythiug else.
"A few more questions aud answers
brought oat the fact that the dog had
seen bis master hunting around in the
grass for frogs and spearing them and
bad of his own accord taken rip the task
01 locating tbe green beauties. Ho was
a thoroughly trained banter of birds,
and be soon became very expert in lo
cating frogs, 60 his owner informed me.
