handsome new dress, but to the in
troduction of a Cox perfecting press

gratulates its Quincy neighbor on its
new and admirable facilities for pub
lishing a first-class paper such as is
a credit to the city of Quincy.
The editor of The Argus wishes
to thank his brethren of the press,
not only in the tri-cities but else
where, for the very hearty congratu
lations and kind wishes which they
hafve lately tendered him. We cer
tainly appreciate the sentiment
which prompted such cordial greet

pleasure in reciprocating the good
fellowship so freely expressed by our
contemporaries. May you live long
The auditor of Illinois made a call
on the Chicago state banks for a re
port of their condition - on June 5.
The reports are all in and show that
they are in excellent condition and
that any uneasiness as to their per
fect solvency is absurd. The audi
tor further says the state banks
throughout Illinois, are in good con
dition and the excellent showing
made by the Chicago banks is an in
dication of the general condition
throughout the state. There are 125
state banks in Illinois and thus far
there has never been a failure.
C. V. Mosiiek. ex-president of tae

ment. The 12 counts to which tjc
plea of guilty was made, charge
Mosher with falsifying the records
and rbooks of the bank. Sentence
was deferred. The maximum penalty
is 10 years in the penitentiary anil

A Boblt Hani to Break OK
"1 see," remarked a well known man
abont town the other day. "that we are in
the midst of another ot those periodic out
breaks against tipping, but it won't make
a bit of difference. Tipping will go on just
the same. Some few people will conceive
the notion that as a matter of principle
they ought to refrain from tipping, and
they will try it for a few days and then will
conclude that for the sake of their own
peace of mind they'd better tip. They'll
co-.tinue confirmed 'tippers' for the rest ot
' The fact is it requires more courage to
rebel against the tipping system than it
does to revolt against almost any other so
cial custom. I know whereof I speak, for
I've 'been there,' and I'll just tell you how
it works. When you withhold the usual
tip, you become painfully aware that the
waiter thinks you are frightfully mean.
You would like to explain to him that you
are only making a noble and heroic fight
for principle, but of course that is out of
the question. Now, nothing hurts a man's
pride so much as to feel that somebody
thinks him mean. He could better endure
being thought a gambler, or a 'bunko steer
er, or a man who didn't pay his debts.
1 ou become afraid to look that waiter in
the face. Next time you dine somewhere
else and again incur the odium of unde
served contempt. You don't get hardened
to it; you hate it worse each time, and after
it has gone on three or four days you just
say to yourself: 'Hang it, or something
else, this thing has got to stop. I can't
stand having people think I am mean when
I know I ain't. Devil take the principle of
the thing!' Then you resume tipping and
are happy once more. New lork Herald.
The War of FanaticiHiii.
It is announced that John Wana
maker's Philadelphia firm and a
Massachusetts man named Pratt will
take up and carry on. the light for
Sunday closing. " They own a few
shares of stock in the World's fair
corporation, which they obtained for
advertising purposes, and which
they now projmse to use for the in
jury of the fair, as far as the courts
will permit them to gratify their
pious malignity. This is a mere
trumpery display of fanaticism and
meanness. It is prompted by an in
cendiarv spirit. It comes from the
same kind of hearts as the preacher
possessed who wanted the troops
called out to shoot the Sunday visi
tors, and has the same pernicious in
spiration as that of the ' man who
wanted to call down lire from heav
en to burn the World's fair buildings.
Of course the Wanamaker suit is
idiotic. He claims that Sunday
opening is damaging the iinancial in
terests oi the fair and impairing the
value of his stock. If the fair takes
in 50,00 or $75,000 each Sunday
that it is open, or more, t lie facts would
appear to be against the claim of the
oily-faced hypocrite who served as
postmaster general under the late
Judge Woods doubtless lum's an
open and willing judicial ear to the
Wanamaker case. It is graded about
to the level of his dull fanaticism ami
sectarian stupidity. Woods should
have lived in the days of the blue
laws and have presided at the trial of
the Salem witches. By his small in
tellect, his narrow partisanism, his
peanut liberality and his sour, puri
tanic aversion to the sweet and hu
mane graces of life he would have
been fitted for the work of a judge
sitting in judgment against Quakers
and Baptists, against men who kissed
their wives Sunday, against all who
differed from his ca6t iron and cruel
creed. Personal liberty, and the lib
erty of conscience in this country.

Of the best known physicians in this conn

men to produce them, paying them so much

volumes I speak of have lieeu issued from
my own presses. That sort of thing is very
"I also am acquainted with a distin
guished lawyer who chooses to have a lit
erary reputation. "He thinks it helps him
in his profession, and presumably his vanity
is gratified by it. At all events he em
ploys a newspaper man of ability, with
whom he is on confidential terms, to write
articles regularly for him. They are most
ly on tonics which have some reference to
law. The lawyer signs his name to them,
and the journalist receives the pay. This
is advantageous to both because the law
yer's refutation makes the article fetch
double or even treble what the newspaper
man could sell it for as his own.
"The lawyer also produ-.'es about four
short stories for magazines every year.
These also are written in type script by the
journalist, who gets $100 apiece for them,
while the lawyer signs his name and is con
tent with the glory." Washington Star.
There was a singular case in the Massa
chusetts home for the feeble minded a few
years ago, when that institution was at
South Boston. A Imy there, about 14 years
old, was blind as well as feeble minded. It
seemed as though his life never could be of
the slightest use, either to the world or
himself. He knew absolutely nothing ami
apparently never could learn anything.
He had, however, one very remarkable
gift. He could tell immediately what day
of the week any day or the month of uny
year fell upon. If a visitor asked him any
date taken at random Aug. 14, 1809, for
instance his features would begin to work,
his eyes twitch, and after what seemed a
physical effort to utt.-r the words he would
stutter, "S-S-Saturday," which thealnianac
for that yeaio would prove to lie right.
Asked again the day of the week of April
27, 154, or any date t hat could have no con
nection with any public event or any event
iu the boy's own life, he would go through
the same spn.-m and stammer, 'Th-Thur-Thursd:iy,"
and he was invariably riicht.

Pepper is simply a general stimulant for
the digestive tract. It brace9 the stomach,
gives a sense of warmth and causes a flow
of the digestive fluids of the stomach.
Mustard has a somewhat Bimilar action,
while salt and vinegcr serve the double
purpose of supplying the needs so far as
saline matters are concerned and rendering
oleaginous matters fit for speedy absorp
tion. Tabasco, Worcestershire, pipricon and
other sauces have many merits, especially
when one partakes of fish or sal ad a. A
dressing is absolutely necessary for a boiled
or baked fish, and no salad outside of the
watercress or celery is fit to be taken into
the stomach without the stimulus to di
gestion which the dressing furnishes. Jen

Philips Quincy. He had no tasto

creditable work in literature- His
son is the prosent Josiah Quincy, the
sixth to bear the name, though his
father has it not in the exact form of
his early ancestry.
Tho Quincys were anti-slavery
men by conviction and tradition. Ed
mund Quincy, tho brother of the
third Josiah. was tho well-remem-

third Josiah Quincy lived to a great
age. Ho bought tie property at the

- Of enamel thttae at two sorts, en

consists in applying to a metal sur

bers Journal says it Is obvious that
the transition was easy from letting
colored g laas in to gold or sliver set
tings to melting the glass into its
place so that it adhered at the back.
The earliest enamels tell their own
story they are "cloisonne," that is
to say. precisely as jewels were set in
a framework of metal, so frameworks
of metals were fashioned to contain
the glass melted into these cells.
This was the construction of

una band of gold was soldered on to
the base, standing up from it at right
angles and oontortod to form an out
line such as was desired to be given
to the ornamentation. If green was
to be the color for leaves, then each
leaf was formed of the band and closed
to oontain the green. Each petal of
a red rose would in like manner be
Jnoloeod' so as to form a gold pocket
in waton the red paste would be
melted into glass. Specimens of
"cloisonne" enamel of European man
ufacture are rare. Tho Louvre col
