"Within the memory of man there has
not been a mysterious disappearance at

corked bottle f.'mtin or thrown tipcn
land, containing what has purported to
be a message from the sinking ship. This
happened as usual in the case of the lrift
"Wliite Star i:ner Niironic. On a beach
near the mouth of Chesapeake bav a
champagne bottle was found, inclosing
a paper telling that the Naronic struck
an iceberg early in the morning of Feb.
19 in a blinding snowstorm, and at that
time was sinking. While it is not im
possible that the Nuronic may have met
her fate at the time and in the way men
tioned, it is practically impossible, that
this bottle with its message could come
from that vessel.
The ship on the 19th of February
would have leen in the neighborhood of

The western excursions which the
trunk lines leading out of Chicago
toward the Mississi pi are planning
with the co operation of the stata
board of agriculture, promise to be
of great importance to cities along
the favored routes ami should be
eagerly taken adva itage of. There
are three of these excursions now
under consideration. The first runs
out to Cairo on the Illinois Central,
thence to Dmjuoin r nd ia the Short
line to East St. Louis where tho Al
ton will be taken biek to Chicago.
Tile second will run over the C B.
& to (Julncy. r "turning by the
Wabash, making stops of one hour
each at Aurora, Gab-sburg, Jackson
ville. Springfield an I Decatur. The
third is the one Roc-i Island and Mo
line are interested in. It comes out
over . the Rock Ish-nd to the twin
cities and after a two hours' stop
here, proceeds to Ft Iton where the
Northwestern will be taken for re
turn. Stops will be made at Joliet,
Ottawa. LaSalle and Genesco coining,
and at Free port and Rockford return
ing. Thus it will hi seen that the
chief cities of the sU.te are to be vis
ited, the plan being to make the ex
cursions purely Illinois affairs. Our
business men shoul t take steps to
make the stay of the foreign visitor
to this city pleasant and profitable.

About 2o tramps b arded a freight

And now the storv goes of how a
popular young fireman on a switch
engine of the Rock I.-land road, yes
terday saw a young lady wandering
around in the upper yards, and how
he jumped from the engine and ac
costed the young lady with a pleas
ant smile, and was repulsed. and
how his engineer came to his rescue
with a lariat made of telegraph wire,
and how they pursi ed the young
lady, but she was too swift for them.

Several Opinion of Daisies.
Fir Summer Boarder (a botanist)
What wonderful vitality the Leucanthe
muni vulgare has! How easily and rapidly
it monopolizes the soil!
Second Summer Boarder (an artist)
How beautifully that field of daisies lights
up the lamlscajie. Just the thing for my
"Morning In July."
The Farmer's Daughter I must pick
wrae more of that white weed for the par
lor. It's just as good as real flowers for
those city folks. They really don't seem to
know the difference.
Third Summer Boarder (a moralist)
After all, the commonest things are the
best and often the most beautiful in them
selves. Now, look at these daisies. If they
grew only under cultivation, they would be
in demand for every garden and conserva
tory in the country.
The Farmer's Wife Dear me! ' What
shall I take to the flower mission this
afternoon? The flowers have Ken about
all used up by the boarders. I g.iess a few
bunches of that white weed will have todo.
