1 If low to the liloomer.
As a matter of interest to those 'who are watching the behavior of the business world in regard to the foloomer costumes, it may be stated that the bloomer has received its Urst blow from the Chicago Tele phone Company. Two hundred girls are employed by this com pany. Some of them have been wearing bloomers. The following edict issued by the company has been conspicuously bulletined: "Operators will not be permitted to report . at this building at any hour of the day or night in bicycle costume nor to assume that attire before departure for borne." That is a stunner. It will proba bly be followed by other edicts from other business companies. But some women, we regret to say, will wear the bloomer costume, for all that. For, when she will, she will. The Great Crojts. People throughout the Union have every reason to be thankful for the fine crops this year. There is no doubt now that the crops for the whole country will be enor mous. An estimate has been made, based on late reports, that ioo, 000,000 bushels more of corn than has hitherto been produced will be the yield. The wheat crop also is the. average for the past ten jrears. Estimates place the total 3rield of spring and winter wheat at 450,000,000 of bushels. The cot ton crop is also quite encouraging, the entire yield being more than one million bales larger than that of last year. So that there is food and clothing enough for every one and to spare. Not fcng ngo Rev. J. C. Porter of the Florida Baptist Witness remarked in the Witness that he wanted the next United States Senator from Florida to outrank the present senator, Wilkinson Call, in moral character and per sonal dignity. Whereupon Senator Call in his special organ, the Ocala .Banner, made a severe attack upon Bro. Porter's character. We do not know anything about the merits of the controversy between ;the two men. We do know, how ever, that Bro. Porter is a high toned, Christian gentleman, and we know also that our United States senators should be men of moral character and personal dig nity, and if there are any who lack these qualifications the people of their state out of self respect for themselves, ought to remand them to the rear and put only good men in the office. It is a mistake to t suppose, as many seem to do, that j3l public official is under no obliga tion to have moral character and personal dignity. Baptist and Reflector. MUSICALE.
