Indianapolis New: Chicago has
just erectid monument to a newspaper
reporter who lost his hie in the discharge
of duty. In Minneapolis, a few days
go, at the memorial servicts of tbe old
est reporter in the northwest, the great
hall was packed ard eulogistic addresses
were made by the governor and other
prominent citizens. It is gratifying to
observe that, as a rule, the members of
this profession are advancing in public
appreciation and esteem . The reportor
ial business on our great dailies has de
veloped i-to both a science and fine art
It must be done by men and women ot
education, ability, judgement and discre
tion. It demands persons not only
of talent, but of character. In addition
to work of the most laborious nature
there is a considerable amount of respon
sibility. First-class reporting deserves
to rank among the learntd professions.
and tbe industrious, faithful, and con
scientious reporter is entitled to the rec
ognition and respect of the commuoi'y.
lie contributes largely to the success of
every public undertaking; he gives tbe
people an opportunity to keep well in
formed upon local events: he describes
many a good deed done in the interests of
humanity, and be proves a wholesome
terror to those of evil inclinations. It is
a satisfaction to note tbat his memory is
honored; it is a still greater pleapure to
note that there is a growing appreciation
of tbe inestimable value of bis daily services.
The protectionist says that the free
list is made up of things that do not grow
and cannot be made in this country,
while the beneficent tariff is put on things
that can be made here. The protection-,
ist says a great deal about the free list;
be glories ;n it. and boasts that it con
tains many more articles uoder the Mc
Kinley than the Mills bill. He says tbat
it is made up oi articles tbat people
need, of raw materials, Lone of which
grow ic this country, and tbat a
tariff duty on tbem would be a tax.

look at it, and see if you can find it any
thing you need for your family.

To the great majority ot the American
people a political riot is a thing utterly
unknown, and the attempt to settfts a
political question by the use ef brickbats
or blackthorns is beyond their compre
hension. The younger generation of
Americans reading the reports of tbe fre
quent collisions between tbe Patnellites
and anti-Parnellites in Ireland may be
excused for thinking that such excesses
represent an incredible state of savagery
in tbe community in which tbey o:cjr.
But it would be a great mistake to
disparage the political standing or intelli
gence of the Irish on tbis account. Tbe
mob has always, until very recent times,
been recognized in English politics, as
hazing is recognized in our colleges, as an
exhibition of fine manly spirit, an excess
to be depreca'ed in public, but to be se
Tbe o'dar generation of Americans re
member dis'inctlv tbe period when In
every large city of tbis country tbe riot
was a regular feature of election day. It
has happily disappeared, tbsnks chiefly
to the establishment of a uniformed po -lice
and to the disappearance of the vol
unteer fire company. But there are
many who contend tbat those were the
golden days of American political purity
and patriotism, and it would be evidently
unkind to judee tbe overzealous Irish
more harshly than we judge ourselves.

"Rich as Croesus," said the first as th
middle aged man went pant.
"No?" exclaimed the second in anr
prise. "Yes, indeed," returned the first.
"He's worth several million at the least."
"Strange, isn't it?"
" What's strange?"
"Why, his step is light, and ho seems
to be in good health."
"Oh, he is."
"There are no rings under his eyes and
his hair is not prematurely pray."
"Not a ring. Why, he enjoys life."
"He looks it. He doesn't seem to have
any nervous trouble either."
"He hasn't. His nerved are us strong
as any one's."
"I should take him for a jovial, gen
erous man too."
"That's just whnt he is. He doesn't
know what it is to be small or mean."
"And he's really rich?"
"Indeed he is."
The second looked after the man with
"Neither worn out by his chase after
riches, nor made cold, hard and grasp
ing," he said. "He's the first of the
kind I've ever seen. How in the world
did he iret rich?" Chicago Tribune.

I have been a great sufferer from dry
catarrh for many years, and I tried many
remedies, but none did me so much ben
efit as Ely's Cream Balm. It completely
cured me. M. J. Lally, 39 Woodwaid
Ave., Boston Highlands, Maes.
I think Ely's Cream Balm is the best
remedy for catarrh I ever saw. I never
took anything that relieved me ao Quick

time. I used to be troubled with severe
headaches two or three times a week.

Ornament for the Hair.
Ornaments fur the coiffure are becoming
more 'lalsrate and consequently more
costly. Mans- of these ornaments approach
the sizi and importance of back combs.
I-.name ed (lowers inrriiste.) with gems
pins si rmoniited with diamond stars or
crescen s, tilletsand tiaras are all included
in the long list of hair ornaments now so
COMBS, rll.LKTS. (iliKFK HAVD AVO HAIR
In the c ut are shown some of the favored
ornamen s. t ousnnmous among these is
the long tortoise shell hairpin, headed with
an asp in green enamel with ruby eyes, the
whole overtopped by an aigrette. Fig. 2

surmoun ed with a star in diamonds. Fig.

One of the newest styles, and a very sim
ple one, r presents ribbon bows and kuots

Items In French Millinery.
The Frtnch milliners use little fancy
pins in pluce of stitches wherever possible.
The trimming on some of t he l ew hats is
entirely put on with pins. Old paste orna
ments may le turned to good account now
for trim mug bonnets. Thev are used for
fastening vtlvet bows. It. seems likely
that the ri iiculously small bonnet will be
followed by the ridiculously large bonnet.
This of course will not lie a su rprise to those
who know fashion's moods.
The "four-in-hand" is one of the newest
shape in f -It hats. It is to be had iu vari
ous shades of gray, drab anil brown. The
trimming s uenerally a velvet baud fas
tened with a jet or paste buckle and three
black tips nt the side. The most becoming
hats for si hoolgirls are the wide brimmed
beaver felts. They only need a baud and
a bow for t rimming.
