CHARGE AGAINST HITCH
FILED WITH M'REYNOLDS
Washington. D. C. July 18. Sen
ator Lewis is authority for the state
ment that charges have been filed
with the attorney general against
Charles P. Hitch, United States mar
shal for the eastern district of Illi
nois, who was appointed at the spe
cial request of former Speaker Can
non. According to Colonel Lewis the
general charges are conspiracy
against justice, subornation of perjury
and pernicious political activity.
From a statement made by Mr.
Lewis it appears that Representative
O'Hair, who is occupying the seat in
congress formerly occupied by Mr.
cannon, nas received from a constit
uent who is described as highly repu
table, but whose name will not be
given at this time, a letter in which
it is alleged that Marshal Hitch in
spired or had something to do with
the prepartaion and filing of the
charge that Mr. O'Hair had sold the
Paris, 111., postoffice. It is further al
leged that one of the men who made
the charge against Mr. O'Hair ad
mitted he had received $50 from Mar
shal Hitch for signing the charge.
The republican postmaster at Paris
was Paul Shutt, who is said to have
edited the newspaper which Mr. Hitch
owns. Mr. O Hair recommended, and
the president appointed, Thomas M oy
er to be his successor and the senate
confirmed the nomination. Senator
Lewis says that Mr. O'Hair has turned
over to him the information received
and that he has placed it in the hands
of the attorney general, who has or
dered an investigation.
Michael Fahy, a member of the Illi
nois legislature, is seeking appoint
ment as United States marshal for
the eastern district
Behrns Hitchcock of Decatur, II!
was presented to the officials of the
state department by Senator Lewis
for appointment as secretary of em
bassy. Mr. Hitchcock brought with
him a letter of indorsement from for
mer Vice President Stevenson.
Judge E. C. Kraemer and L. O.
Whitmel of East St. Louis called upon
the president to indorse Charles A.
Karch for United States district at
torney and F. C. Smith for collector
of customs for the southern district

MEM' HINTS FOR SIMMER.
If I were to ask every housekeeper
in the land, "what Is your greatest
difficulty experienced in cooking?" I
am sure every one would reply, "mak
ing out the menus."
It is planning meals with right food
combinations and knowing what to buy
that requires the thinking. When
that is all done, the cooking and pre
paration of the meals do not seem to
be a serious problem, with the ex
perienced housekeeper at least.
For yeaTs I have been beseiged by
women to issue a book or card index
form of menus all made and ready for
use, and I have determind'.y refused,
as there seemed so little real help In
it for any one. Each home has its own
conditions and problems and at best
menus planned by any one outside ot
the family can only be suggestive. But
I have planned a method of correctly
combining seasonable foods which is
very easily done and suited to every
family's individual needs. A few ot
the combinations from this menu card
are here given.
WATCH THE LEFT-OVER S.
In using the following guide for
every-day menu making, find out your
present food supply first Look care
fully after every tablespoonful of the
"left-overs" in the refrigerator, writing
these down on a pad of paper.
We will suppose, for the purpose of
making it clear, that celery is found in
the refrigerator not quite fresh
enough for the table, but will answer
perfectly for soup. Then start your
menu with No. 1 under soups, which
is cream of celery soup; follow with
.No. 1 under meats, No. 1 under vege
tables and so on until your entire
menu is made, planning to use, if not
in the dinner, in some meal, all the
"left-overs" written down. Numbers
corresponding exactly with each other
working forward or backward will
make the combination right.
Now tear off a clean sheet from the
pad and make out your grocery order
for at least three meals ahead, look
ing after the dry groceries at the same
time, such as tea, coffee, sugar, soap,
starch, etc. This is usually done right
after breakfast. After looking over
some headings and numbers a choice
will be found. For instance. In No. 1
under vegetables there will be several
from whioh to select and also in many
others. With this method all food
properties are given and at the same
time foods are properly balanced.
It is not necessary to have a recipe
for every change In soups, sauces,
salads, etc. If you have a recipe for
one sauce, dressing or cream soup as
a working basis, you can make others.
Soups 1, cream of celery; 2, clear
soup; 3, puree of vegetables.
Meat 1, roast beef or beef steak; ' :
2, breslau of beef; 3, heart fricas
seed, braised, baked.
Sauces. Dressings 1, cream ot
horseradish sauce, Worcestershire :
sauce; 2, parsley sauce, tomato sauce, '
brown sauce soubise, onion sauce,
celery dressing; 3, brown sauce, to
mato sauce, sage dressing, bread ''
Vegetables (The first vegetables
after each number are the carbonace- .
ous or heat and energy producers, and
one of these should be used in tho
menu regardless of other vegetables
selected); 1, white potatoes, carrots or
spinach a la Hollandaise, cauliflower,
cabbage, Brussels sprouts, parsnips,
string beans, lima beans; 2, egg plant,
squash, mushrooms, rice; 3, peas. .
stuffed baked potatoes; creamed
cabbage, parsnip fritters, macaroni,
string beans, spaghetti, stuffed tomatoes.
Salads 1, lettuce or endive,
French dressing, chicory. French ,
dressing, orange and grape ftu'Jt V
salad, French dressing, combination '
salad, French dressing; 2, apple und
celery salad, eggs in aspic jelly, cab
bage salad, sour1 cream dresiBlng,
cream cheese salad; 3, grated carrot
salad, French dressing, mayonnaise
of asparague, salad a la Hanson.
Relishes 1, salted peanuts, rais
ins, stuffed dates, corn fritters; 2, -of
asparagus, salad a la Hanson.
Desserts . 1, pineapple or other
fruit ice, chocolate or prune souffle;
2, diced bananas in grape fruit, peach

F .W. STEWART,
Illinois Athletic Club,
Young & McCombs Tell of Greatest
July Clearance Bargains They
We are starring things up every
department has been carefully gone
through and prices cut even lower
than before. Saturday we will sell
thousands of dollars' worth of good,
clean merchandise at less than the
cost to manufacture it. This cut price
disposal is the result of two things:
We are getting rid of our complete
stock of new, clean, wanted summer
merchandise regardless of its cost or
former selling prices; tfcpse being the
very merchandise wanted during the :
heated days of mid-July, selling rap-1
idly at prices placed on them to rid I
us of our entire summer stock as soon !
aa possible. There are more items
among the thousands of dollars' worth
tf goods that show savings of 30, 40,
BO and 60 per cent and higher than
you will find at lesser reductions that
is why this sale is meeting with un
precedented success as far as amount
of merchandise 6old Is concerned.
The other cause for our present low
prices is simply this: Manufacturers
are frightened by proposed tariff re
ductions. All of them that are direct
ly affected are unloading their surplus
stock at the greatest reductions we
have ever known. We have taken ad
vantage of this market condition.
By cleaning up in June with our
Buyers' Contest Sale, we were in a po
sition to buy the manufacturers' sur
plus stocks at savings of often 50
cent oa the dollar. This new mer
chandise is to be found in nearly all
departments. Most of it is marked at
our cost thus we give the customers
the benefit of ourbuying wisdom and
Take manufactured articles like
gloves, hose, underwear, woolens, silks,
wash goods, imported embroideries,
laces, ribbons, handkerchiefs, ready-to-wear,
fancy goods, etc. Every man
ufacturer is cutting prices deep, to be
rid of all surplus stock in readiness
to meet the changing tariff rates.
Through these two conditions we are
able to eell much cheaper than ever
before, quality merchandise that '.a
most seasonable. Read our three ads
