Itis doing pretty well to have one good idea in each advertisement. The almanac tells us that there are 305 days in the year, and the most scientific, advertiser issues Ills store news almost every morning or evening. There is probably no dan ger, then, tiiat lie will not have plenty of chunce during the twelvemonth to exploit Ills good suggestions not nil of them, of cour.se, because his advertising is going to continue year after year, but many oC them. Let the announcements, then, be as fine and strong as possible. Have them convincing, And one thought is usually enough at a time, especially If it is a good one.

Official Declaration its to AH of Them to He I.ssnel. CoiiKldiiruhlc uncertainty as to the status of positions la the civil jervice still ex ists, eveiuimjiiKpersonsln office. Whether a given pluce is under civil service rules or lielonps to the excepted list is often a very nice question. Even the men who ordinarily detenaine such a matter some times disagree, and then it is necessary to refer the matter to some law officer, usually the Attorney General. There ire a number of decisions from lilm on ques tions of this kind. One, for instance, Is In regard to em ployes In the Bopartmoiit of Justice. It settles the poMtion or deputies under the United States marshal for this District. IC holds that the office deputies are under the rules, while field deputies are excepted. Asaln, among the assistants to the At torney General, those who appear In court are excepted, while, those who do not arc protected by the rule requiring a com petitive examination, to precede the ap pointment in order to determine the fit ness of applicants. The reason for the uncertainty lies in the rapidity with which the rules were extended last summer by President Cleve land. The list of appointments was so changed that some 6ort of revision he came necessary. The newspapers have published statements as to what positions arc open to candidates without examina tion, but these have all had some errors, Including positive statements aoout posi tions not passed upon. To furnish correct and full information the Civil Service Com mission is now preparing a, publication Avhich will give the exact status of every place in the service up to date. This book is now in the - press, and will be out the latter part of this week. It will enable Congressmen to tell Just what places are open and who are now filling them. It Is prepared iu answer to a resolution -Congrc8s. STOLE TH12 FAMILY JEWELS. The Residence of F. H. Atwell Mobbed by n Lodger. E. B.

Mrs. Bcrtlin Hueb.su m Sues to He cover $4,500. The rather unusual experience of a wife bringing suit for an accounting against her husband was brought to light yester day, in a bill riled in equity by Mrs. Bertha RueLsamv Her husband, the de fendant, Is John E.

He gave, his promissory note with interest payable hfini-annually.

Mrs. Ituebsam asserts that her hr.t-bnnd now answers her demands for money with contempt and harsh treatment. The loan she made to him exhausted her resources, and she has again sought employment as a music teacher. On several occasions her husband has struck her, she says, when she asked him for money. As the money came from her separate estate, Mrs. Ituebsain says she has a right to it. Mr. Ituebsam is possessed of considerable real estate, and she asks to 'recover on this.
