mystery. When the firemen arrived
the room was filled with smoke and
the location of the fire for a few min

finally located In the rear of the build

not until the dense smoke had dam

There was practically no damage from

heaviest vote against the sale of the
property came from the Fourth ward,
where Harrison school was located,
the measure failing by 111 ballots.
Many reasons were given by those
who voted against the sale. There
were echoes of the stadium project,
snored under at the special election
of a year ago by a landslide vote, some
having the mistaken notion that the
money from the sale of the Harrison
school property would be used in buy
ing a site for a manual training school
near the high school. Closing of sa

"Kiss Me Not" signs 'and buttons,
worn by babies and others interested
in the anti-germ movement, will soon
be replaced by buttons reading, '.'Kiss
Me Quick." We are approaching an
era of kissing, and osculation will be
taken up again, perhaps, more
than ever. All the result of an article
appearing in a Berlin publication and
written by Prof. Adolph Paskau, a
noted Eavant and physiologist.
"Kissing," declares the professor,
"instead of being harmful, is highly
beneficial in more ways than one.
The recent notion that kissing
spreads germs and that it is for that
Teason a dangerous diversion, is all
foolishness. As a matter of fact, it
eoothes the nerves and is very bene
ficial to persons of a highly sensitive
or nervous temperament. The idea
that tuberculosis is contracted through
the intima'e embrace Is exceedingly
improbable and I am sure at least thaj
this is not true in Germany. The
world has struggled along for some
ten thousand years or more without
abolishing the kiss and I think we can
go aong as well for that, length of
while to come. Kissing is as health
ful as it is enjoyable."
This news from as authoritative a
source as Professor Paskau- will
bring joy and elation to - many. It
cannot be denied that under proper
circumstances and favorable sur
roundings, most of us take great de
light in kissing. Particularly if our
cpmpanion is a congenial member of
the opposite gender. Professor
Paskau,- however, will receive the
loudest and most resounding cheers
from that foolishly happy class of
persons, the young in love. And
when these glad tidings reach them
they will pause between clinches and
voice a ringing Huzzah for Professor

Bill's Wild West and Pawnee Bill's
Wild East show did not leave for
Colorado Springs Tuesday night to fill
its date in that city. Instead it re

tachment for $66,000 and the failure of

favor of the. United States Lithograph

which was issued Monday afternoon,

Adolph Marks of Chicago, who rep
resents the lithographing company, is
said to have agreed to a".low the com
pany to proceed on its tour upon the
payment of $25,000 of the $66,000

nee Bill) agreed to pay his share of
this amount, but could not come to an
understanding with Col. W. F. Cody
(Buffalo Bill) whereby the latter
would meet his half.

Attack "Dry" Brewer.
Rockford. III., July 24. Alleging
that John Petritz of the Rockford
Brewery company is interested in
conducting a non-union brewery, tha'-
be is responsible fcr Rockford being
a dry city; that he has grown rich at
the expense cf workingmen, and that
he "beasts he sells more beer with less
expense than when the town had regu
lated ea.oons," circulars attacking
both Mr. Petrttz and the brewery have
been circulaed in Rockford by the
International Union of the United
Brewery Workers of America. The
attack comes as a surprise to the
Petritz people. Frank Petritz, a eon,
says every statement in the circular
is false. '
To Select Women Jurors.
Taylorville, 111., July 24. The local
police officers are expected to select
a woman jury for service in the local
circuit court within the near future,
and if this action is taken it will be
the firBt in central Illinois to be
chesen under the provisions of the new
statute, giving the women of the state
the suffrage right. Chief of Police
Link has stated that in the near fu
ture he will select a woman jury for
service and the move is anxiously
awaited by attorneys and all interest
ed in the suffrage question. It has
been shown that only those women
whose names are on the register can
be selected fcr jury service, and be
cause of ths fact those women who
are opposed to suffrage and who do
cot vote will be eliminated from jury
