shops of the city. The grocers are to
be prohibited from selling fresh meats

will result In prosecution by the Meat

THE ANCIENT BOW.
It Varied In Shape With the Different
Although universally used by the an
cients, the form of the bow rarled
with different nations. The Scythian
bow was In the form of the letter C,
and the bow of the Tartars, descend
ants of the Scythians, still keeps that
shape. The Greek bow was not mors
than four feet in length, but so stout
and stiff that it required considerable
strength and skill to use it. It is said
that the first Greek bows were made
from the horns of a species of goat,
the bases being united by means of a
metallic band. Afterward other mate
rial was used in their manufacture,
but they still retained their original
shape. These bows were too short to
be of much use, and only a small por
tion of the troops were armed with

period. The English archers were said
to be-the finest In the world, and their
skill decided the battles of Crecy, Pol
tiers and Agincourt. The bows used
were of two kinds the longbow and
the arbalest, or crossbow. The arbalest
was made of steel or born and was of
such strength and stiffness that It was
necessary to use some mechanical ap

Telephone operators who plug wrong
numbers or get the wires crossed some
times are responsible for very embar
rassing situations, as was exemplified
by a broker in this city the other morn

other end of the wire:
"Hello, dear. Is that you?
yes," replied a sweet toned voice.
"Well, I've been thinking about you
all morning. I want you to come
downtown and meet me for luncb, and
we'll go to a show this afternoon."
"Well, that would be very nice," re

Weight of Atmosphere.
, Atmosphere is the name applied to
tbe gaseous envelope that surrounds
the globe.- It consists of a mechan
ical union of nitrogen and oxygen in
the ratio of four to one. together with
a relatively small amount of carbonic
acid gas and a little water vapor. Its
thickness is about fifty miles, although
it probably 'extends in an attenuated
form as far as 500 miles. This is in
ferred from the observation of lumi
nous meteors. It exerts a pressure
of fifteen pounds to the square Inch
at the earth's surface and weighs over
eleven and a half trillions of pounds.
Each adult inhales one gallon of air
per minute and consumes thirty,
ounces of oxygen daily. An ordinary
gas jet consumes as much oxygen as

"Caffeine," says a scientist, "is a drug found in coffee and tea and is classed

That's what coffee dees, in part.
On the other hand, thousands of people have learned to distrust coffee and
have found in well-made POSTUM a beverage which tastes similar to coffee but
has none of the harmful effects of coffee.

Plumbers on Strike. Journeymen
plumbers of Moline did not report for
work yesterday. This move was un
expected by the, master plumbers.
They had informally decided to grant
the wage increase demanded by the
union and were prepared to raise the
wages of plumbers and steamfitters
from $3.60 to 4 a day. The master
plumbers here made little outcry on
account of the lack of help, however,
and W. L. Stange, their secretary,
say they are awaiting developments.
The bosses contend that they are treat
ing individually with the plumbers
union. One of them said: "The men
are not content with concessions in
the way of wage increases and short
working day, but want to impose, cer
tain conditions on us that would prac
tically amount to their running our
shops. We will never stand for this."
To Revise City Court Project. Agi
tation in favor of a city court for Mo
line has not died out; there is still a
strong sentiment in -municipal circles
in favor of the proposition," and Indi
cations are that a special election to
vote on establishing such a court will
soon be called by the council. Voters
of Moline declared themselves as in
favor of a city court at the regular
April election, but the council did not
declare the proposition carried because
it did not receive a sufficient majority
of the total number of, votes case at
the election. This was due to the fact
that more than 1.000 who voted for
city officers failed to express them
selves on the city court proposition.

and was admitted to the bar In 1844.
Almost Immediately Mr. Williams
moved to Iowa. After three years of
private practice he was elected Judge
of the First Judicial district of Iowa.
In which position he remained until
Mr. Williams In 1852 was named as

office, he appointed Mr. Williams chief
Justice for the territory of Oregon.
Although President Buchanan reap
pointed him to this position when he
took office, Mr. Williams declined tq
accept the reappointment.
Judge Williams was attorney general
of President Grant's cabinet during the
latter's second term. After serving in
that capacity for three years Judge Wil

Some American doctors are In favor
of the contract system for medical
service, but they ure still a long way
from the Chinese scheme of stopping
the doctor's salary when the patient
falls ill. The writer knows a New

threatened with an operation he will
ask the surgeon what it is going to
cost Then be will hand him the
amount at once with the assurance
that the fee goes whether the operation
comes off Or doesn't ne reasons that
the doctor will then have no possible

whether to operate or take a chance.
