ly with ihe movement, to buy up and
preserve the birthplace of Abraham
Lincoln, one has been started for the
preservation of the old log cabin occu
pied by Gt rural Grant just prior to the
civil war. Representative Coudrey of
Missouri lias introduced a bill provid
ing for the appointment of a commis
sion of three , lumbers to investigaie
the Grant farm, which is situated iu
Missouii. Tliis commission is to go
ov r the ground thoroughly and repoit
a plan for the preservation of the farm
and its historic log cabin. It is hoped
to induce the Sixtieth coimress :.i
make an appropriation sufficient to pre-
I'lve the old homestead of the great
eneral, transforming it into a reposi
tory tor civil war relics.

report issued by the geological
. attention is called to the great
done by the shifting channel
Missouri liver. The report says:
I ii a
'"The channels have shifted so
in late years, that, whereas 1
o steamboats piicd regularly as far
up riv r as Omalia. there is now no
regular line above Kansas Cilv. At
many points tne channel nas sained
in these l." years over a mile of ground
and where once were fertile farms are
now only brusbv gravel banks and
worthless sand bars."
This report, directly supports th'
contention ot tne National Rivers and
Harhi rs congress that the improve
ment id rivers not only will permit ot
their cairving on their waters Heels
if boats bearing the commerce of the
country, but it also will prevent, ta
urge measure the great damage done
-ach year by Hoods and freshets. Witii
the rivers improved bv deeper chan
nels to provide tor all stages of water,
his enormous loss to the country at
large each year would be obviate I.
while at the same time the gain made
by the stimulation to commerce won. 1
be vast. The National Rivers and
Harbors congress is seeking to have
the government devote $.-0.iiim.nin n
year to this work, and it is endeavor
ing to make its appeal the more power
ful by adding to its membership, whien
now includes shippers, business organ
izations, and individuals in every stale
in the union. To this end. Captain J.
F. Ellison, secretary of the organiza
tion, which has its headquarters in Cin
cinnati, has issued a general appeal tti
every one interested to join the move
ment. The National Rivers and Ha---hors
congress has the heartiest, en
rloisement of President Roosevtlt.
Speaker Cannon, and Representative
Burton, chairman of the rivers and har
bors committee of the house of repre
sentatives, while the president of thy
organization is Congressman Joseph
E. Ransdell of Louisiana.
In these times of piping peace boih
the war and navy departments are
hard pressed to iind both men and mi
ncers. At Annapolis the staff of in
structors is so depleted that it ha.
bt en noctssary to press into servk-.'
some of the upper classmen to iiiieci
the studies of the newcomers. The
war department faces a like condiiion
in the coast, artillery service, for which
branch it can secure neither the neces
sary number of men nor odicers. A
large number :f guns and much ex
pensive coast defense material is lying
idle at the present time because tjm
government cannot find men to man
the engines of war. For the same rea
son the new baitleship Vermont is nor
being fitted out. the navy department
being unable to enlist recruits" fast
enough to equip the newer navy.
Iconoclastic Dr. II. W. Wiley, chi-f
chemist of the department of agricul
ture, has issued a report, that may re
sult in the tipping over of the national
'water wagon." tin which so many
well meaning citizens took passage on
.Ian. 1. Dr. Wiley finds that a large
number of soda fountain "ionics"
whose virtues a- non-intoxicating and
refreshing beverages are heralded 'n
many drug stoics, owe their efficacy
almost entirely to the caffeine and co
caine that enter into their composition.
Samples of several of these so-called
.tonics have been nought in the op"n
market by lr. Wiley's agi-nts and
there probably will he some surprise
to be made public once the chcinic il
tests are- completed.
Uncle Sam at Inst is determined to

Overcoat Jack Again Appears.
'Overcoat Jack" again cxhibiied hini
of Sunday evening. A lady residing
on .Nineteenth street had come down
off the hill on an Elm street car and
alighted at Fourth avenue and Fif-
leenth street. She proceeded on her
way toward home on Fourth avenue
and had reached the First Congrega
tional church, when she noticed a man
approaching from the east. A s'iff
hat was pulled over his eyes, and when
she drew near she noticed he was minus
any trousers and was wearing a short
coat. She lied into the street and an
approaching street car frightened the
man. who lied back of ihe church. An
other case was also reported which oc
curred in the vicinity- of Seven'h ave
nue and Twelfth street.
