the beech of the supreme court of the
United States it msy be said that Abra

in order that it migM not become tep

Advakck sheets t f the tffieihl Catho

A congressional apportionment
tcheme has been prepared by Secretary
of State Hinrichsen. Wi en on the state
central committee "Buck" was considered
one of the most ltvel-lieuded and as'.ute
politicians on the comiLittee as well as an
energetic and tireless worker. But we
don't l.ke his apportionment scheme for
several reasons. Under his plan Cook
county would have seven d stricts, with
Lake county added, whereas the popular
lion of Cook entitles it to only six, which
gives the big democratic county on the
lake the two extra districts iu the state.
Our principal objection, however, is the
decidedly unfair manner in which it is
proposed to divide the present 11th dis
trict to the detriment of Rock Island and
Meroer counties which are to be placed in
the 10th district with the counties of
Whiteside, Henry and Knox. This plan
would not only place us In a hopelessly
republican district, but also in the small
est in point of popalation in the state, or
five per eect less than the ratio.
No, no, Mr. Hinrichsen, the demo
crats of Rock Island and Mercer coun
ties deserve better treatment, at the bands
of their party. Your plan will not do It
is manifestly unfair to this section of the
state, Trv agein; you may do better.
Get the Addrestiea Right.
"As good a piece of advice as I ould
give a young man starting in busi
ness," said an old and successful mer
chant, "would be to get his customers'
names riphL Of course, everybody
means to do this, but 1 don't think
everybody attaches to it its full impor
tance. The fact is that .almost every
man is proud of his name, whatever it
may be, and he dislikes to see It mis
polled or incorrectly written. There
are plonty of names which sound alike,
but which vary in the spcllino-, per
haps by only a single letter; and, too,
in taking a man's name it is not so
difficult as one might imagine to make
a mistake in the) initials, lor there are
letters which sound very much alike.
When you get a new customer get his
name right to start with. No man
likes to receive a package or a bill or
communication of any sort with his
name misspelled; however modest and
good n:iturd h" r..ny be, lie is pretty
fti.-e r. lie ant. it." A". Y. Suit.

THE THEFT OF LOVE.
Once, long asro,
T as years and years unnumbered,
love weary prew
Am l slumbered.
Wier , with mischief rife,
A n rmph espied him,
Etolo lis bow and arrow,
Lyii g loose beside him.
Love slept on; then, sobbing,
' Told of his awaking.
Havin ; lost his bow.
His .ittle heart was breaking.
Love prew snd and silent,
Jfotl ing did but brood.
And ail this while no lover
Was by lover wooed.
When the world grew lovclesa.
Having lost love's giver.
Then tie nymph contritely
Gave back to Love his quiver.
The rof ne, since wiser grown.
Mind "ul of his dower.
Now always hides his bow.
Remembering that sad hour.

Oatmeal and the Scots.
It is a mist ak') to imagine that the brawny
Scots are the pure product of oatmeal;
brawny Scots, the Scots or Caledonians of
Ossian, existed long before oatmeal was
made, and not very small or tame Scots
were they either. Were one to live the life
of a Scotch highlander, room over heather
clad and mist moistened hills until he had
the appetite and faculty for sleep of a can
nibal, then he might eat bis raw oatmeal,
and in a few general ions he might turn into
a brawny Scot a id compete at the Caledo
nian or the queer's games, but the poor in
valid who needs pepsin and cascara sagrada
had better leave oatmeal alone. It is not
oatmeal alone that makes the giants of the
Scotch Grays or :he giauts that march be
neath the noddii g plumes of the famous
Black Watch; tie oatmeftl is a mere cir
cumstance or eoi leidence.
It is claimed that the British few con
quered the India's millions because the
former are beef aters and the latter feed
on rice and religiously abstain from flesh.
If tho principle 1 olds good the bull should
be devoid of tha . courage that has passed
into a proverbial expression, denotive of
the fiercest, unflinching, and persistent
courage a qnalitv1, which coupled with its
name, has given 1 3 the fiercest of dogs its
special designation and which also conveys
the idea of t he ai gressive push of the Anglo-Saxon
rfico. raiiitary Era.
The Children's ltoom.
The room set asile for the children is usu
ally such a doleful place that it is no won
der the little folks persist in straying from
their own particular domain, going upon
little excursions, tj the drawing room, the
library the kitc'ien, any one of which is
far plea.sa.nter th: n the Cjv.arters up stairs
that have been ass.gncd to them.
Mothers argue: 'Anything is good enough

are so destructive, vou Know. After awhile

they are small it di esu't matter much what
