King Kdward. it is said, has asked

DeallngVith Train llobbers.
The train robberies right here in
Illinois and Iowa have brought rail
road men to their senses, and. at last
they have decided to discourage this
brigandage. It should be stopped.
It can be stopped. So long as train
robbery is not antagonized any more
than it is at -present there will be
plenty" of it. .The railroads have
"trusted to luck," as the "old saying
goes, but so many, of them have been
"unlucky" of late they are ready to
act. Such action would be commend
able. The placing of a big reward
upon the heads of train robbers dead
or alive will keep the trainmen more
on the alert. The trains will be more
carefully guarded. Other steps than
the placing of a reward on the head's
of robbers should be taken. Train
men should have a line of instruction
what to do under certain conditions
in attempts -at train robbery. Train
men should be armed and given more
authority in dealing with criminals.
And beyond this, the railroad, by
the proper treatment o.f its men.
should convince them that thev are
interested in them aid their welfare
and that when they risk their lives
for the corporations that employ
them aud for the general public, such
heroism is not only appreciated but
rewarded, as it ought to be.
Illinois Revenue Receipts.
. Illinois paid into the national trea
ury during the fiscal year endinr
June 30 a larger proportion of the in
ternal revenue receipts than any oth

ceipts for the year were $271,867,990
as against $:iOG.S71.o6) the previous
year, a decrease of $3..003,G79, caused
by the repeal of the war revenue
taxes. Of this amount Illinois paid in

largest contributor, turned into the

Mora I'ower From Niagara- -
It has been decided to build a large
power plant on the Canadian side of
Niagara Falls which when completed
will enable the operators to furnish
200.000 horse power. A few years
ago the idea of using Niagara's pow
er would have seemed ridiculous, but
the progress of invention during the
last century has now made it possi
ble. There has also been wonderful
progress made in medicine during
that time, the most noticeable being
the introduction of Ilostetter's Stom

A Desperate Remedy.

had taken possession of my bedroom
to give such a concert. I 'got up from

"An awful mistake."
"How did you get Into my bedroom?"
"I thought it was Billy's."
'Who is Billy?"
"My brother, Billy Fanning."
"Why, he's my chum. His rooms arc
next to mine."
There was a knock at my sitting
room door. The girl shrank back In
to my bedroom, and I closed the door.
Turning, there was a head looking in
to the room my mother.
Oh, if-there were only a door open-
lug from my bedroom into the hall!
But there was no such door. The girl
could not leave my room except by the
one we were in.
"You are fined, mother, at climbing
the stairs. Sit in this chair and rest."
I put her In the chair and listened to
and asked the usual questions after a

She arose and was going to my bed

"But, mother, it's worse yet. I haven't

Poor mother sank into my arms aud

"I don't care who she is, I'll have
nothing to do with her."
Now, I had purposely talked suffi

She opened the door and stepped bold
"Mother,, this Is Miss 1 mean my
wife. I know you will love her and
she will love you."
The girl walked up to mother, kissed
her and asked In a voice Into which

you forgive us?"
"Yon are a very sweet looking ghi,
said my mother, somewhat appeased.
"les, mother, and when you ve
known her as long as I have you'll ad

The girl turned away suddenly.
Slot her supposed It was to hide her
blushes at my encomium. I caught a
glimpse of her face In a uiirra and
saw that it was to hide laughter.
"W elL Roger, you ve been a very
