The auditor of Public accounts has
made a statement of the condition of
the IllinoU State banks. There are
now 125 tanks, an addition of 10
since April 10. Since that date the
aggregate resources, including ag
gregate leans and discounts, have de
creased f 15,im'm'.Ooo. The deposits
have been reduced about the same
amount, oi from $$5,000,000 in April
to tG'J.UOu.'Mxi in Julv. The aggre
gate reserve in proportion to the de
posits is much stronger, showing the
general coi dition to be unusallv good

A Washington correspondent
speaking o' the assembling of con
gress in special session says that
among oth rs who will be missed
from the floor of congress "are three
prominent and serviceable western
men: Sim ely. of Indiana: Cable, of

While still another says: 'I?en Ca

sion, althoi gh by virtue of being an
ex-member he was on the floor to
day back of the rail chatting over
recent events and explaining to a
group of admirers how he carried
Illinois for Cleveland. Cable was
not knocked out, he simply declined
a renomina-ion, and in view of his
district being heavily republican, he
showed his wisdom. Cable demon
strated his -hrewdness on receiving
his first nomination by sending his
repre.-entat: ves to all the livery
stables in t:ie district and hiring,
months in :idvance of the election,
all the buggies, wagons and car
riages for election day. The result
was that wl en the republican mana
gers came r und as usual on (-lection
day to hire vehicles to send into the
country for the stay-at-homes and
republicans living at atiistanee then'
were no v hides. The republican
vote was, 1 1 erefore. light and Cable
walked oft" with the persimmons.
His livery bill was the greatest ever
incurred in that p.trt of the state.

energy toward that end. He is rich,

The last correspodent's reference to
buggies is v-ry largely due to an un
restrained imagination, as Mr. Ca

It is strangi that ho many people neglect
to care for their feet who devote considera
ble time to tin ir hund. It is quite certain
that corns, bu dons and other afflictions of
the feet are more often due to such neglect
than hnpropeily shaped shoes or any other
cause. Proba'ily one of the most injurious
habits of the t itne is the wearing of close
shoes of india rubber. When a rubber is
needed, a sliptubber, which covers only the
ball of the fo.it, is much more wholesome
than a higher shoe and (rives almost as
much protection. A heavy calfskin shoe
with a stout heel, however, is the most
wholesome foot corering for walking and
will be found impervious towater if fre
quently oiled. These shoes shonld be kept
for damp weather. New York Tribune.
Remember that slang is unmeaning as
well as int-lega it and that words like "jol

of season soon lose all their meaning.

Among the crowd of us who rushed into
