OROTHY in the nursery can calculate the
price of Ivory Soap per cake, but it would
take a mathematical genius to calculate its
true value. For he must take acrmmt nf
time, labor, and materials. He must deduct from the
apparent cost the saving in the longer life of the cake,
in the longer life of the washed fabric, in the labor
required, in the time consumed, in the strength ex
pended, in the results obtained. When all is finished,
Ivory is the cheapest soap in the world. It floats.

a conspicuous place at every annual
meeting of the old settlers.
Tbe cane has a large gold head, the
bands serve a tablets for the names
of the icad officials of the association.
Tbe wool in the cane came from
the old residence of Col. Davenport,

HART IS IN FAVOR OF
When James A. Hart, president of
tbe Chicago National League Baebal)
club, beard yesterday of the letter
which President P. T. Powers, of the
National Association of Baseball
leagues, bad sent out asking the Na
tional and American leagues to re
spect contracts, he announced at once
that he was in fall accord with the
views held by Mr. Powers.
"I have always wished to respct
contracts and reserves," said the head
of tbe Chicago club. I rever thought
it was right to disregard other con
tracts, and the Chicigo club would
have respected all such instruments
this season. It has always done so and
it will continue in the same way. It
is awajs the best policy to be honor
able in all kinds of business, and
baseball is no exception. If other
people do not respect onr contracts
we cannot E6lp that, but it does not
prevent us from respecting the con
tracts of others."
C harley Comiskey, president of the
American league club, was not so
positive in his statements as was Mr
Hart, but he said that wherever pos
sible contracts and reserve lists
should be given consideration.

whi'iu'p they will probably move inland
toward the frontier. The foregoing
rovers the facts in the case. Number
lets rumors are being industriously cir
culated, but n careful weighing of all
information from various sources lends
to the belief that the forces of Davila.
after their disastrous defeat Sept. 14.
wandered to the mountains, 'pursued
by Indians and Colombians.

Eventually Davila. with five com

lloth the Venezuelan and Colombian
governments show a tendency to play
at the head of their forces the revolu

in order to give a color of political
revolution to the contacts letween
their respective troops. For example.
Venezuelan troops under the leader
ship of a Colombian liberal, are o)er
nting against the Colombian govern
ment forces, and the movement will
be qualified as an internal, and not as
an international disturlKincc. This
greatly confuses the situation.
Vcnnntla Dlutttr Confirmed.
The Venezuelan disaster of Sept. 14
is fully continued. Few prisoner
were taken. The retreating Venezue
lans were caught on lotIi sides of a
river with the bridso broken, and the
Colombians overwhelmed them from
