It was so hot In Chicago last week that an ice box took fire. LI Hung Chang told a deputation that he favored arbitration, especially with Japan. Don't be In a hurry. John Walter* a Franklin, Ind., rode for a doctor ii auch haste that his horse dropped dead It Is the proper thing now to use the word "ignited" instead of "fired" when apeaking of the man who has lost hi» job. If, according to the old proverb, speech is silver and silence golden, wa already have free and unlimited coin age. That there is no more sensible animal than the horse was proved in Shelby ville, Ind., the other day when an un caged bloomer girl caused a runaway. An Eau Claire capitalist was arrested In that town for wearing a too scanty bathing suit. Apparently Eau Claire has determined never to be a fashion able summer resort. A Michigan hypnotist proposes to put a man to sleep for twenty-eight days. If he succeeds In doing this while May or Pingree Is stumping the state the might of hypnotism will be forever vln dlcated. Czar Nikolas is said to he hourly in dread of assassination, lie has become ao nervous and excited over it that an insanity specialist has him under treat ment. This seems strange so soon after spending $10,000,000 in his coronation festivities to make himself a popular sovereign. CircuB entertainments and fireworks st em to have failed to recon cile the people with the tyranny of one man power. One of our contemporaries refreshes Its readers with the announcement that the coal-mine owners of Kentucky have issued "a call for a convention of the owners of coal mines in the United States, to be held In Chicago, Septem ber 31." A happier selection could not have been made, us according to the political schedule no other conventions will bo held on that date. There la some doubt ns to when the coal men's convention will adjourn. Some of the leaders are said to favor February 30. Rebecca Uroadman Is the wife of a ^traveling salesman and she docs not know where her husband is, although .ghe Is still awaiting his return In New York, what she docs know, however, ia York, what she docs know, however, ia that before departing on his last trip her husband sold her to George A.

All the parties are Rus sians. A water famine exists in a largo portion of Arkansas and In some sec tions human beings are actually suffer ing from the panga of thirst. There have been Isolated thunder showers in various portions of the state recently, hut in some counties no rain has fallen since April 13, and the suffering Is al most beyond relief. In Jefferson, Cleve land and Bradley counties the people in aune localities are hauling water for drinkjng purpose« In barrels a dlstauce of,-twenty-five miles. A traveler through these counties on land aaya * that for an entire day he was unable to buy a glass of water to quench hla thirst. White River la running dry and the mayor of Fayetteville has issued a proclamation prohibiting the sprink ling of streets, the water being needed tor drinking purposes. The final decree has been promul gated from Okmulga, the capital of tho Creek nation, as it has been handed down by Judge Adams, chief Justice of the supreme court of the nation, in tho citizenship case. It strikes from the rolls of the citizenship of the nation the names of over 1,700 negroes. Tho decision holds that the action of the Indian council, after the passage of the emancipation act by the United States. In admitting the negroes to tribal relations, was unconstitutional, and therefore at this time invalid. Since , the passage of the act these negroes : have drawn in annuities $ 1 , 000,000 from the Creek government: have held posi tions of official trust, and have im proved their farms and educated their children at the nation's expense for twenty years. From the decision of tho court there is no appeal. The interior department has held the same opinion In a similar case. The Dawes commis sion, which has been appealed to by the deposed negroes, claims it has no right to Interfere with the decision of *he Indian court. Ten Cuban womeu have been cap tured by the Spaniards. This wonder ful achievement on the part of the army •f Spain shows that its valor is not on the wane and if properly re-enforced Bight be able to take a few men pris oners, provided they were wounded. The Japanese believe that each man la predestined to die in a certain way. on an allotted day. and that the com bined efforts of man cannot change this fate. This largely explains their impetuous bravery during the var with China. ' VETERANS' CORNER. SOME GOOD SHORT STORIES FOR OLD SOLDIERS. "The ^o* flier's Mocking.

"I think,1 carry with me the finest proof of /Grant's love and gratitude of any manliving," said Col. William Bar nard çf St. Louis. He opened his pocket book and drew out two worn and creased papers; one, a blank check signed "Ulysses S. Grant," the other, a few lines scrawled on a torn bit from a memorandum book, to the effect that "the within ia good up to $50,000," and signed "Grant." Then "Col. Bill" told his story: Years before he had been a rich man, and there came a time when the young Infantryman got Into trouble through no great fault of his own, but through that faculty for trusting people which never left him in all the after years. Ho needed some money, and needed It badly, yet he was too proud to aek any one of hla wife's relatives or family connection to loan him the amount. As he afterward expressed it when talking over the affair with "Col. Bill," who had been one of his best friends from the time he courted "Miss Julia," he was "in a devil of a fix." Without knowing very much about the complications, but receiving an In timation from an officer stationed at the same fort, the colonel senl the sub altern an unfilled check with Instruc tions to use If he needed It. Grant did use It, and labeled and filed away the little debt of gratitude he was to owe for many a long day. "Col. Bill's" for tunes fell with those of hundreds of others In the city on the banks of the big river, but always, In some unob trusive way, a chance was given him to recoup, and without becoming wealthy again he kept "in comfortable circum stances." Parties knowing the intimate rela tions existing between the successful general and the colonel besought him time and again to go with them into certain gigantic schemes that needed only the tacit consent and protection of Grant to make every man among them a multi-millionaire. Once the colonel hunted up Grant "down In the jungles" of the southwest and told him how he was being "pestered to death" ners." Grant listened quietly until the story was done, then he swore a few choice occasions. "Bill, do you want to go into that thing? If you do I can't say a word, but-" j "It would have done your heart good to have seen his face soften and heard his voice tremble, when I assured him that though I didn't consider myself a saint by any means. I did consider my- ^ self a gentleman, and that though a million or two would come in right | handy, I had no thought of making it in a way that would certainly reflect upon his honor. We talked of other ; things after that, as Grant seemed to want to dismiss the subject entirely, j In answer to his inquiries I told him I was doing fairly well financially, and j then we drifted to 'home talk,' and I soon after left him and went north, and later abroad. When I next saw Grant he was In Washington, and upon bid ding him 'good night' after one of our long talks, he handed me an envelope, saying carelessly: 'Here is something may fit in some time. When I went to my rooms I broke the seal and found the check just as you see it and this characteristic note."—Washington Post. Met After Many Years. The London Telegraph tells of a curi ous meeting that occurred recently in a hotel there. A number of Americans were dining at the same table, although they were unacquainted with each other. One was being entertained by an English friend, and was relating in cidents that occurred during the war of ! the rebellion. I The speaker, who had been a mem ■ her of the union army, said that once, ! previous to a battle, he had traded a packet of quinine to a confederate sol j dier for a pipe of tobacco and a curi | ously carved pipe. These exchanges, j he said, were frequently made. The northern eoldier often traded tea and coffee for tobacco. As he told about the quinine and pipe episode, another of the Americans, a tall, gray-whiskered man, wearing a slouch hat, seemed deeply interested. That pipe and tobacco saved my life," said the former union soldier. "My commanding officer learned that I had it, and ordered me to report for an ex planation. While 1 was gone there was a sharp skirmish and the man who had taken my place was killed." Here the gray-whiskered gentlema.. interrupted. "But did not the man with whom you traded tell you he had a child that was sick, and did you not tell him that you also had a daughter ill at home? And did you not offer to let him have the quinine without tak ing the tobacco?" he inquired. "Yes, but how did you know?" was the astonished answer. "I was that confederate," was the answer. Then the two men shook hands, and their daughters, now grown to womanhood, were introduced to each other. 1 Hla Authority Worn Oat. In former years, before the adminls- 1 tration of Andrew Johnson, who made the veto power infamous, message from a president expressing his disapproval of legislation was a rare and solemn thing. It was customary for both houses to adjourn immediately after such documente were read, in order to signalize their importance. But now vetoes are so common that they are al lowed to lie upon the table unopened until an opportune time offers for their presentation. Neither the speaker of the house nor the president of the sen ate will interrupt the regular order to hear them read and they make so light an Impression that Representative Beach Is reminded of a boy who heard his father call him to come into the house and go tp bed but paid no atten tion to the paternal command. Where upon a bystander asked with some sur prise: "Johnnie, is not that your father calling?" "Yes, sir," was the reply. "Then why don't you obey him?' "Why nobody obeys him any more," was Johnnie's reply. "He keeps telling everybody to do things and nobody ever does them. He keeps telling everybody that they mustn't do things and they keep right on doing things all the same. Nobody don't pay any attention to him any more. Ma don't, the hired girl don't and I don't and the dog don't either."—Pittsburg Dispatch. "From the Deck.'* The recent death of a valued con tributor to the Companion, Rear Ad miral Thomas H. Stevens, has led his comrades to recall the manner and spirit in which his duty was done. It was of his action in the battle of Mo bile that Captain Mahan wrote: "As they passed, the admiration of the flagship and the Metacomet was aroused by the sight of Commander Stevens of the Winnebago, walking quietly, giving his orders from turret to turret of his unwieldy vessel, direct ly under the enemy's guns." Of the same engagement. Rear Ad miral Le Roy wrote: "Commander Ste vens was outside of the turrets, perfect ly exposed, and as the vessel I com manded was close alongside his vessel, both running for the ram Tennessee, and as my vessel was the faster and more manageable, he cheered me with words of encouragement as I was pass ing." "1 like to fight my battles from the deck," Rear Admiral Stevens once said. The words sounded the keynote of his and every other successful career. The man who doee his work "quiotlv," yet "under the enemy's guns." and who. even at such a time, thinks of his com panions and cheers them with "words of encouragement"—he is the man who wins honor, love and remembrance.— Youth*' Companion.

E HAVE RECEIV ed from one of the patrons of a co operative creamery, a compara tive statement of the prices paid for milk at the co-operative creamery and at the creameries operat ed by a private com pany. In the lat ter filled cheese was made, and It la claimed by parties who have been In terested in the manufacture of filled cheese, that the farmers are receiving a large benefit from the use of skim milk in the manufacture of filled cheese.

Taking the whole year through. It will be seen that the average paid by the co-operative creamery is only 2 Vic less than that paid by the creamery utilizing skim milk for filled cheese. Any farmer that will sell his skim milk for the purpose of making filled cheese at an average of 2V4c per hun dred, is certainly lacking either in good judgment or sound business sense; and has never understood the value of skim milk, even for fertiliz ing purposes. He would make mote money by dumping the milk on the ground or any place where he raises either fruit or vegetables, than to sell It at the rate of 2^c per hunlred. This shows how the makers of filled cheese have been humbugging the farmers, telling them that they were receiving so large an amount per hun dred for their skim milk over and above what they could get were they telling their milk to creameries where filled cheese was not made. Ever since the passage of the filled cheese bill we have heard the cry that the farmers were going to lose a large amount of money by its passage, be cause the factory men who nade filled cheese could afford to pay so much more for their milk. We have no doubt but what they could afford to pay much more for the milk when they manufacture filled cheese and sell it as It baa been sold for the last five years. But that they did pay this advanced price for the milk where they manu facture filled cheese la not a fact; and they have been humbugging the farm ers at their expense, and making a great deal of profit out of the manu facture of the fraudulent article.—El gin Dairy Report. Goats. The goat haa not had a fair show In modern times. Among the ancients he was highly esteemed, and figured extensively in serious literature. Now he ie only the butt of funny Para graphen whose acquaintance with him la confined to a tradition that he eats tomato cans on the Harlem rocks. The children of Israel and the heroes of Homer, knew him better. The Old Testament shows the goat as an essen tial part of the Hebrew's flocks. It gave him milk and meat for food, hair and skins for clothing and was his most common sacrifice for aln. En camped before the walls of Troy, Ulysses and his comrades regaled themselvea with the fat goat's roasted quarters, and thought themselvea spe cially blessed of the gods. But we of the Western world have come to des pise the goat as "the poor man's cow," a useful enough animal for the moun taineers of the Alps or the squatter sovereigns of unsavory suburbs, but an Inferior creature not worth the no tice of the free-handed owner of broad American acres, possessed of Jerseys, Merinos and blooded trotters, and above the utilization of a brush lot or a stony pasture. Some American farmers, however, are coming to real ize that the goat may be made one of their valuable domestic animals, not merely a poverty-stricken substitute for a cow, but an addition to the farm community, filling a place of its own and giving a return peculiar to itself. A Missouri farmer writes to an agri cultural paper that he finds goats profitable for rough land filled with weeds and bushes. He has had them four years, and they have destroyed the bushes, sumac and small persim mon trees. Hla hogs have been frse from disease, while his neighbors who did not keep go&ta lost most of thair hoga by cholera. Ho ate the meat of young goats and liked it better than mutton. His experience coincides with that of farmers in countries where the goat 1« extensively raised and prized. England is not among them, owing partly to there being compara tively little waste land, but, also, ac cording to S. H. Pegler, an authority on the subjec;, because there "the advan tages of goat-keeping are but Imper fectly known." and the American lack of appreciation for goata may be inherited. In Ireland, on the contrary, the number of goatB has Increased in recent years. Of course the goat cannot com pete with the cow aa the single milk animal for those able to keep the cow, but it has advantages In places where the cow cannot be kept, and as an ad dition to the profits of the farm. In the first place, it is a great instrument for extending pasture lands. It will eat by preference and thrive upon forest leaves, shrubs and weeds that no other domestic animal will touch, and get a rough and overgrown field Into good condition for horses and cattle. It Is hardy, and will live on rough or smooth ground. There Is a prejudice against the milk, but one entirely groundless. It ie richer than cow's milk, heavier In butter and much heavier In cheese, but all experts de clare that it has absolutely no differ ent flavor or taste from that of the cow. The average daily yield of a well kept goat is said to be three pints: not a large quantity, but not an item to be despised, In view of its richness, the size of the animal and the Blight cost of keeping it. Herds of goats in this country would not only utilize much of the herbage which now goes to waste, but might also develop some profitable industries which have not yet been ac climated here. The manufacturer of fancy cheese In Imitation of expensive foreign varieties in some cases has been so successful that the domestic product sells on Its own name and merits. In other cases, such as Roque fort, the results have not been satis factory. Methods of curing account in part for the failure, but different ma terials may have something to do with it. Many of the finest European cheeses are made from goat's milk, while the American attempts to rival them have been made with cow's milk. There is nothing else available in the market. If there were, doubtless creameries making fancy cheese would arrange to consume all that could be had, and the goats would prove a source of wealth both to farmer and manufacturer. Nor is the goat to be despised for food by an over-fastidious race. In the restaurants of Rome the kid holds an honored place. The el derly members of the tribe are Inferior to mutton, but the kid, properly pre pared, is a meal which will bear com parison with any other. It would be an agreeable variation of our regimen. The man who makes a goat grow where none grew before should have credit with him who makes two blades credit with him who makes two blades of grass stand where formerly one stood alone. By all means, let us learn of the ancients and grow rich from flocks of goats.—Ex. Some Figure! on Cheasa. In a recent report Major H. E. Al vord, of the United States Dairy Di vision, says: Nine-tenths of the cheese produced In this country is made in the states of New York, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Vermont, Iowa, Pennsylvania and Michigan, ranking in the order named. The New York product alone la almost one-half the total, and this state and Wisconsin together make over two thirda of all made. It requires the milk of about one mil lion cows to make the cheese annually prsBed In the United States. The value of the annual cheese prod uct of this country varies from $20, 000,000 to $25,000,000. ▲bout 0,000,000 pounds of cheese are imported annually Into the United States. The rate of consumption of cheese In America la about three pounds per capita per annum. Consumption of cheese is apparently somewhat decreasing. Good cheese is approximately com posed of one-third water, one-third milk fat, and one-third casein, with some sugar and ash. Mildew on Pena. Late peas, especially when grown in damp ground, are often co badly mildewed that It Is not worth while growing them. The pea mildew is one of the powdery mildews, Erysiphe communis, belonging to the same family as the powdery mildew of the grape. It grows entirely on the sur face of the host plant, covering it with a white coating of delicate interwov en fungous threads. At certain points protuberances appear on threads which serve as suckers, drawing from the celle the nourishment required for the growth of the fungous. The spores are produced in delicate sacs which in turn are enclosed In dark colored spore cases. The latter appear as black specks just visible to the naked eye among the fungous threads. The disease attacks leaves, leaf-stalk, pod and stem so that the pea plant la thor oughly infested with it, much to the detriment of its growth. Frequent cultivation or irrigation will do much to hold the disease In check, but the use of some fungicide will be desira ble upon late varieties in hot, dry sea sons. Among the best for the purpose is a solution of one pound of copper sulphate In 500 gallons of water. I Bad water will make bad milk, no matter what the other food may' be; and bad milk will make bad butter, no matter how It in handled. The Rhode Island Station says that milk fever in cows Is a brain disease, and is Inherited by many cows. Best for Children. It ia far better not to allow a child to be out of doors at all in the middle of the day, when the sun is hottest, and always to insist that It lie down for an hour after dinner. Whether the child sleeps or not does not matter; it ia resting and that ia what is re quired; and unless this is a rule rigidly enforced. It will not be carried out, most children, after the days of their Infancy have passed away, being very disinclined to be compelled to lie down, except at such times as when they wish to sleep DUhutrad Drafts.
