The importance of the elections lies
n the fact that they serve as a weath-
xcock to show the drift of public
pinion regarding the policy of the
entral government. Although the
sues involved are purely local , the
oting is invariably conducted on strict
arty lines. Moreover , many coun-
illors are also members of the senate

heir re-election or defeat is indicative
f the view their constituents take of

Weather Bureau Reports Heat Over En
WASHINGTON , D. C. , July 22. Th <
weather bureau last night issued th
following bulletin :
Practically the entire country was
covered by the hot wave today , ex
cept the immediate Pacific coast ant
in the states of Iowa , Missouri and II
linois ; nearly all high previous rec
ards were exceeded. The maximum
liigh temperature line of 100 degrees
encircles the entire great corn belt. AI
Davenport and Dubuque , la. , and ai
Springfield , 111. , the maximum of 106
degrees has been equalled but once be
tore , on August 12 , 1881. At Chicago
; he maximum of 102 degrees equals
: he previous high record of July 10 ol
the present year. In the states ol
! owa , Missouri and Kansas the dura-
ion of the present heated term is
without precedent , there having been
practically no interruptionto temper-
itures of 90 degrees or over since June
L8 , a period of thirty-four days. On
ilghteen days of this period the maxi-
num temperature at Kansas City was
LOO degrees or more.
There are as yet no indications of
, ny relief from the abnormal heat. No
ain has fallen in the corn belt for
he past three days and none is in
Ight. It is of course probable that
cattered local thunder storms , which
ire always accompanied by protracted
teriods of heat , may fall at times , but

ST. MARY'S ACADEMY ,
Hotr * Dame , Jndlaaa.
We call the attention of our readers
to the advertisement of St Mary's
Academy , which appears In another
column of this paper. We do not need
to expatiate upon the scholastic advan
tages of St. Mary's , for the catalogue
of the school shows the scope of work
included In Its curriculum , which la
of the same high standard as that of
Vassar and Bryn Mawr , and is carried
out faithfully in the class rooms. We *
simply emphasize the spirit of earnest
devotion which makes every teacher
of St. Mary's loyally strive to develop
each young girl attendant there into
the truest , noblest , and most Intelligent
womanhood. Every advantage of"
equipment in the class rooms , labora
tories and study rooms , every care In
the matter of food and clothing , and
exceptional excellence of climatic con
ditions all these features are found at
St Mary's , in the perfection of develop
ment only to be obtained by the con
secration of devoted lives to educa
tional Christian work in a spot fa
vored by the Lord.
You can rely on a man keeping"'v
