CniCAC.o Is a standing evidence
that a city's progress toward great

sweeping conflagration. Still, there
are better and surer ways of build

TnE farmers of the United States
sometimes think they experience hard
times, but there has never been a

LrCKY" Baldwin, the man whe
owns the flO.000,000 ranch in Cali

A tosse of indignant Indians is on
the trail ot the Kid, and hope for his

A Oakland gentleman started to
take a spot from his coat with ben

been aroused, but in the excitement
the fate of the original spot seems to
have been lost 6ight of.
France apparently would like to
see the Panama swindlers pun

ever, the detention in jail of a num

personal objection to the treatment,
it is probable that France will sub

The stato of Pennsylvania has ap

Ex-Secretauv Elkins speaks Span
ish with as much fluency as his
mother tongue. The reason for this
is that the early years of his law
practice were spent in New Mexico,
where, in order to succeed, he found
it necessary to acquire a command
of Spanish, as the cases in court
were tried in thai language.
Ax intelligent and economical firm
had kerosene piped throughout its

the fire fiend almost every day.
We shall hear this year many cen
sorious comments upon our country,
its institutions, government and
manners from our foreign visitors.
But wo have now passed beyond the
vealy and sensitive epoch in our
national life and should serenely and
complacently get all the good possi
ble out of our guests' criticisms.
TnxNKs-iKE legislatures have per
formed the great feat of levying a
tax on all private schools except
those of a sectarian character.' As
the stp.te is unable to maintain a
sufficient number of public schools to
educate its people, It would bo in
teresting to find out what influence
brought this curious measuro about.
The New York Herald says that
Washington E. Connor, the great
' banker and broker, nnnouncod that
lie had resigned from the republican
club, of Xu. 450 Fifth avenue. The
reason assigned by Mr. Connor for
his action is the sending out recent
ly by the committee on national af
fairs of the club a circular attribut
ing the present disorganized condi
tion of linances to President Cleve
land and the democratic party. The
circular speaks of the situation as the
"democratic panic of 1893" and
states that the present condition of
affairs due not so much to the Sher
man silver purchase act as to the lack
of confidence by the general commu
nity in President Cleveland the mem
bers of his cabinet and the present
congress. Mr. Connor objects to the
rlul attributing such reasons for the
present era of depression. He be
lieves the club' action is calculated
to injure the eountry by depriving
the community of the support of re
publican business men and financiers
in a time of need.
Returning to Their Sense.
The people in Denver, Milwaukee,
St. Louis and elsewhere, who a short
time ago rushed frantically to the
banks and drew every copper of their
deposits out have apparently got
well. They are returning to their
senses, and the consequence is that
money is pour ng in over the bank
counters at a rale that indicates a
strong restoring of the confidence
which alone plr ces and keeps busi
ness in this lai d where it properly
belongs. It is now estimated that bv
the first of Sepi ember there will be
:?, 000,000 in deposits restored to the
banks in Denver alone, and the same
tendency, ditTe -ent not in kind but
only in degree, is manifesting itself
all over the western states. The
Journal says the same is true of
Peoria nearer home. In the mean
while here is a business rode gotten
out by the Noithwestern Miller that

Care of the Feet Insnres Comfort,
Care of the feet is an economy of strength
as well as of stockings. Aside from the
daily bath, the fee t should be washed at
least once a day. This is a matter of a few
moments and insures neatness, rest and
comfort. If the tired shop girl or sales
woman who has been standing for 10 hours
would dip he-r feet into a basin of cool
water instead of curling her bang or doing
up her back hair, she won lei have a lighter
step and fee-1 more like walking homo than
Walking heats the feet, standing causes
them to swell and both are tiresome and
exhaustive when prolonged. There are va
rious kinds of foot baths, and authorities
tliffer as to their value. Hot water enlarges
the feet by drawing the blood to them.
When used, they should be rubbed or exer
cised before attempting to put on a tight
boot. Mustard and hot water in a foot bath
will side-track a fever if taken in time, cure
a nervous headache and induce sleep. Bun
ions, corns and callousness are nature's
protests against bad shoe leather. Two hot
foot baths a week and a little pedicuring
will remove the cause of much discomfort.

Dainty and Palatable Sandwiches.
The eminent Francatelll, who was a pupil
of Coreme and chef to her majesty the
queen and subsequently to the Reform
club, was the inventor of "Adelaide" sand
wiches, which were hot dainties, the bread
tteing stamped out in circular form and
fried in clarified butter to a light golden
color. Between two of these croutons was
placed a preparation of minced cooked
chicken and ham mixed with curry paste.
The sandwiches were then anointed with
grated rmesan mingled with butter and
baked for five minutes.
Francutelli's "Victoria" sandwiches were
composed of thin brown bread and butter,
with layers of thinly sliced hard boiled
eggs, small salads and cleansed fillets of
anchovies between the layers. And to the
same inventive genius we owe the "liretby"
sandwich, made of slices of white bread and
butter cut from French rolls, with alter
nate layers of chicken and shredded lettuce

idea came like a diverging force, projecting
itself across the rectilinear thought which
had alone previously directed my action.
It was as if an invisible arm seized me and
drew me down. I cried out and continued
staggering over the whirling waters till
help came to me. The mere thought of ver

According to an old legend, the baby's
dimples mark the spots where angels fingers
touched the child in bearing it from heaven
to earth, but uiiromantic doctors have a
different explanation. They say that dim
ples probably result from defective develop
ment of a muscle. When the muscle is
exiled into use, the defective portion fails to
respond, and a hollow is left into which the
flesh and skin of the cheek, for example,
fall, and thus the dimple is formed. New
