many cf the older residents of Rock

this city but, unfortunately, his appetite
for alcoholic drinks carried him down
step by step until he became an inmate
of the poorhouse, where his death oc

The city this morning commenced re
pairing a number of depressions in the
Secoud avenue pavement. The mayor
has ordered tbe street car company to
raise its tracks on Second avenue in a
number of places where improper sup
port has caused them to sink. This will
be done at once it is hoped, so that tbe
city will not be delayed in putting Second
avenue in good shape. By the way,
while this improvement is being done
wouldn't it be a good idea to have that
worthless piece of track on Seventeenth
street and Second avenue, north of the
double tracks, taken out at once?

Scarcely less foolish is the practice of those who
fly to violent physicing for costivcaass. They
dose themselves violently weaken their bowels by
so doing-, and disable them from acting regularly,
so that, verily, the last condition of such people
is worse than the first. Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters is the mfe and effective substitute for ouch
vast expedients, for it is by co means expedient
to use them. What is needed is a gentle bnt
thorough laxative, which not only insures action
of the bowels without pain or weaken in effects,
which also promotes a healthy secretion and flow
of bile into its proper channel. Dyspepsia, de
bility, kidney complaints, rheumatism and ma
laria give in to the Bitters.

Some Piquant Sauce for the Deacons
Gambling a Crime and Its Devotees
New York, Aug. 17 Sam Jones talked
for nearly two hours on New York politi
cians and stock brokers and gave tbeni a
scorching yesterday. The subject for .the
day was advertised as "Conscience, Rea
son and God, with a Few Remarks on
New York Politicians and Wall Street
Thrown In." '-Is gambling a crime?"
he said. "People don't seem to
think so, but I say that it is.
Why don't you think so? It is because
those whonv. we term the best in our land
are gamblers. That's the proper definition
for these people. Men who virtually rob
each other day after day. Men who, after
speculating for a week in Wall street, go
to church oa Sunday and, getting on their
knees, ask the Lord, not to forgive them,
but to show mercy to other sinners.
Prefers the Old Style.
"They don't ask fo mercy themselves,
and they won't get any. They are gamr
biers despite the fact that the public in
general believe them engaged In a legiti
mate business. If we must have gamblers
I would rather Bee things done in the old
style two men at a table playing with a
deck of greasy cards with . a black
bottle between them. Those men are
entitled to a hundred times more respect
and consideration than our Wall street
friends, who are deacons and elders in
their respective churches. I tell you,
friends, that if all the real criminals in
New York city were given kimilar treat
ment poor little Sing Sing would have to
have 2,yi more square miles added to' it
to hold them all.
A Whack at Progressive Euchre.
"How are we to stop gamhlingUt will be
a terrific job .to do it for, as long as a pack
of cards is in existence the evil remains.
It can never be done as long as those sin
ful affairs known as progressive euchre
parties are allowed to go on. What a
farce to call them progressive euchre par
ties. They are gambling parties, nothing
else, and are doing more to ruin our
young men and women than anything else
I know of. It is sickening to see the way
our church people attend these affairs.
Deacons and elders who never miss a Sun
day at church gather in' the parlors of one
of the parishioners, and for two or three
hours ut a time sweat and struggle for
Sin Worse Than Leprosy.
"But if anyone should ask them to
sit down and play a penny nr.te game of
poker they would raise their hands in
holy horror. It is tiresome to see tbe talk
which has been created over two
unfortunate Mongolians, who have
been banished to a disease infested
island for life. They say they
have leprosy. If they have it isu't their
fault, and they shouldn't be abused and
denounced on all hands as they have been.
Why, their disease is nothing to the terri
ble disease called sin which exists- in all
corners of New York city."
Shuts OflT the Applause.
At this a party of Staten Island Meth
odists, who occupied the right gallery, be
gan to clap their hands. "That'll do,"
said Jones. "You Staten Island people
needn't applaud. God knows Staten
Island is bad enough. The only differ
ence is that in New York sin is
bigh cockalorem, while on Staten island
it is low cockalorum." This provoked a
great deal of laughter and the Staten Isl
anders subsided. The preacher then
went on and denounced the liquor traffic
DOUBLE TRAGEDY ON A TRAIN.
Knife and Hatchet Get in Some ' Fatal
Work Murdered by a Woman.
Carxie, Ills , Aug. 17. A most revolt
ing tragedy occurred Friday at Texas
City, nineteen miles from here. Mike
Weitzel was in company with Mary Bal
lentine, a notorions character, on the
north-bound freight train. When near
Texas City young Otis Johnson, aged 17,
who was in the caboose, resented some
unseemly remarks made by the -woman.
Weitzel instantly knocked Johnson pros
trate with a sluugshot. Johnson got up
and made a slash at Weitzel with a knife,
cutting a deep gash across tbe at domen,
disemboweling Weitzel. The woman then
picked tH a hatchet and struck Johnson a
fearf'il blow on the face. Both Johnson
and Weitzel have since died.

be held in this city. The bridegroom will
be Harry C. New, of Indianapolis, and
the bride will be Miss Catherine McLain,

Was Too Wary for the Miscreant.
Boston, Aug. 17. Saturday afternoon
Dominico Forti, a young Italian, went
home, and, producing a revolver, told bis
wife that she and a certain Sicilian youth
must die. She begged him to allow her to
kiss a crucifix in another room. He con
sented, and she slammed the door in hs
face and fled to the street. He chased her,
and the iolice arrested him on Endicott
street. He has been intensely jealous of
his witeiur sonie time.
Germany and the World's Fair.
London, Aug. 17. The signs multiply
that German industries will not be fuliy
represented at the Chicago fair. Many
unfavorable replies have been received by
the imperial commissioner, and as a re
Ax the government has thought best to
issue a statement that its official accept
ance of the invitation to participate in the
fair will be withdrawn unless a suitable
number of exhibitors signify their inten
tion to send displays.

A. TALK WITH SECRET ARY FOSTER.
Comment on Bond Extension Oondi
tlon of tbe Natloual Treasury.
' Washington, Aug. 17. Secretary Fos
ter was busily engaged in the treasury
department Saturday in catching up with
current business. He devoted considera
ble time crroiultiug ' with tho various
bureau officials on financial mattery
Later he talked quite freely to a United
Press representative about treasury mat
ters and the financial policy of the de
partment: He said: "About $18,500,000 of
H per cent, bonds have been extended
and applications haw been received cov
ering about $2,500,000 more. What the
final outcome will be ot course I can not
tell. It is probable, however, that a con
siderable portion of the balance $30,000,
000 will be extended.
Can Bedeem tbe Bonds If Called Upon.
"It. will be no hardship for the treasury
to be called upon to pay those not extend
ed. In fact such payment will add, b'y
the amount paid, to the money in the
hands of the people. By the extension we
succeeded in preventing a decrease of na
tional baqjc notes.and, in fact, have so far
increased this circulation nearly $5,000,000.
The outlook is that considerable more of
an increase will be effected, I am not
finding any fault with the actiouof the
banks, as might be inferred from a recent
Agrees with Senator Sherman.
"I saw Mr. Sherman at Mansfield. I
always find it profitable to discuss treas
ury matters with him. I do not recall a
single disagreement between us. Tbe
statement telegraphed from Mansfield is
pure romance. Whjle there is less money
in the treasury than for many years past,
it is in a cermfortable condition. Because
of less money in the treasury it follows
that more money than ever before is in the
hands of the people thus facilitating the
conduct of buMt-s of the country.
I ucle 8am on a Gold Iiais.
"We are on a gold basis, and there is
no occasion for al.-lrni as to the ability of
the government to maintain this condi
tion. The secretary has Sfbple power to
maintain or increase the present reserve
of gold. I may add that Mr. Sherman
fully agrees with me regarding the legal
power of the secretary as above expressed.
I do not see any occasion for the exercise
of this power, but I do not hesitate to
say that, should the occasion arise, I shall
not fail to use it." .
The Enterprising; Special.
The press dispatch referred to by Mr.
Foster was a special to the New YorK
Press in which it was stated that in the
interview with Sherman it "was soon
demonstrated that the ex-secretary did
not share the views of Mr. Foster upon
the subject. He thought the secretary
should pay the per cents, and he un
dertook to show how easy it w:ts for him
to do it without making trouble in the
financial world," etc., etc.
CHICAGO CRANKS ARE HAPPY.
Old Anse Leaves Sew York with a Small
Lead for the Pennant.
Chicago, Aug. IT. The hopes of the
base ball crank of the Windy City hive
been built up around the proposition that
if the "colts" left New York for the west
on this trip in the lead, the pennant would
float next year from a Chicago pole. New
York played a tie game Saturday, Boston
didn't play and Chicago took the third of
the three games with Brooklyn, giving
Captain Anson a lead of seven points.
Three games with the Pittsburg men will
finish this tour, and the home grounds
will see the colts cavorting around for a
spell. If those Pittsburg games go An
son's way but base ball is "mighty on
sartin." Boston and New York are" very
close for second place--only one point le
tween them. Following is given the
standing of the clubs:

the former) has been secured for Milwaukee.
