An Anrora, III., man-who had often
warned his wife against wearing her
chatelaine watch exposed to view when
going down town or to Chicago, was
laughed to scorn by her for a dozen
years. His wife's luck changed, how
ever, and it wis finally stolen. The
husband extends his sincere thanks to
the pickpocket for the gentlemanly
way in which he taught the lesson, and
informs him through the papers that
he will make uo effort to recover the
trinket. He now offers to start a so
ciety for the prevention of women
wearing their watches on the outside
of their garments in public places.
Cait. McCalla's tribute to the
newspajer correspondents in his
speech at the Chicago jubilee ban-
iiiet wul be thoroughly appreciated,
as Curtis, the famous correspondent,
observes, and the compliment will be
heartily returned by the hard-working
gentlemen to whom he referred. The
Chicago Record savs: "There is no
doubt that Capt. McCalla saw more
active and arduous service in the
Cuban campaign than any other com
mander in Sampson s fleet. Jle was
sent on blockading duty to the south
ern coast of Cuba as soon as hostili
ties were declared, and the cruiser
Marblehead. which he commanded,
was constantly in motion until the
protocol was signed. , His most im
portant achievements were the cap

Today it was rumored that out of
the closing of the (Icrman National
bank of Pittsburg will come a demand
for au investigation of the manner
the state treasurer docs business with
the banks holding commonwealth
funds. When the Uerman bank closed
it was generally supposed that at
least $:5M).0OO of 'state funds was tied
up. When inquiry regarding the
amount of the commonwealth balance
was made it developed that the states
has had no account at the bank since
Aug. l!l. When the account was
closed the amount of the balance was
This small balance caused surprise,
as it had ltcen generally known that
the bank always carried abjut foUD,

James S. Ueacom saj-s the account
was closed last August Ijccause the
directors of the bank had refused to
sign the boud ami pay the interest re
quired under the new law, which went
into effect May 1. Oct. 31, 1!7. the
state had 275.000 in the bank. This

722.22. It will le noticed that the state
treasurer began to cut down the de
posite in the bank eight months be
fore the new interest law went into
effect and King lefore the directors
were required to file a bond.
One of the directors of the bank
said the reason the state deposit
was taken away Irom the bank was
because the directors strenuously ob
jected to making loans desired bv
prominent state politicians. The pe
culiar financial methods of certaiu
republicans of state and national rep
utation were such that no reputable
hanking institution could allow. The
politicians, finding that they could
hot get "accommodations," had all
the state money withdrawn. The
21.722.22 left in the Imnk uniil Aug.

amount of the bank's loan to the

In Hoyt's satirical military comedy,
A Milk, White Fla;,"to be presented
at the liurtis Sunday night, there is
a delicious jumble ol characters and
scenes that keep an audience in inter
ested expectancy during the entire
performance. Probably the most ex
pressive commendation of the plav
would be to say it suits public taste
and fancy, especially at the present
time. The production is vastly
clever and entertaining, and many of
the scenes are intensely funny, and
presented as they are by a large and
competent cast and lavish scenic and
costuming accessories, they cannot
fail to make a large hit.
Apollo, the Adonis of the bounding
wire, who appears in his celebrated
specialty in the roof-garden scene,
which is the most conspicuous por
tion of the third act of "The Late Mr.
Early," has the reputation of being
without an equal in the world in his
particular Hue of work. Coining di
rect from the Folies Bergeres in Paris
several seasons ago to join the Hop
kins Trans-oceanic AU Star Specialty
company in this country, he imme
diately became one of the most popu
lar specialty artists in that organiza
tion and developed such strength as a
tlra wing attraction that until this
season he lias been continuously with
that company. Among the many
seemingly incredible feats that
Apollo performs is the turning of
complete somersaults, both backward
and forward, from feet to feet; the
jierformance of a dance and pirouet
ting. All of this and many other
clever tricks he does on the bounding
wire. "The Late Mr. Early" com.

Cure all kidney ills.
Hundreds of citizens testify to this.
Here is a case in point:
Mr. Frank IJallenger, of 3031 Sev
euth avenue, conductor for the Tri-
City street railway company, says:
My kidneys were weak for years anil
I was always troubled a great deal
more in cold and changeable weather.
From fall until spring it was a steady
aching pain across my back. Being
weak there, getting on and off the car
so often and the jarring and . jolting
further aggravated the trouble.
There was too frequent action of the
kidney secretions, which was very an
noying through the day. In the
spring of 18H7 I saw Doau s Kidney
Pills advertised in the daily papers,
and I obtained a box at Marshall &
Fisher's drug store. I found them
just as represented. They relieved
the pain in my -back and rugulated
the other kidney difficulties. 1 have
had several slicrht colds since, but
they have not effected my back as for
merly, so I have every reason to be
lieve that Doan's Kidney Pills have
strengthened my kidneys and the ben
efit I received is permanent. I freely
give my statement for publication,
and I hope it will be the means of
others trying this valuable remedy.'
