It will add greatly to the ap pearance of that part of the city. Ladies' $ fine kid turn shoes for dress wear $2.85 at Williams' fire sale. L. M. Jones today received a pros pectus of the big dry goods bouse of Lloyd L. Jackson & Co. of Balti more, from whom he buys every thing. The firm is capitalized at a million of dollars, and employs 78 salesmen in the different depart ments, and in running down the list he finds the name of Frederick D. Miller in charge of the domestic de partment. Mr. Miller is a son of A. M. Miller, formerly of this city and will be well remembered here. The body of Robert Huff, accom panied by the family, arrived oa the 9:50 train from Indianapolis, this morning, and left here for Fountain City at 12:50 p. m.. and was taken at once to the Friends church for funeral service. The fu neral service was conducted by the Rev. E O. Ellis of this city, who went up on the noon train, accom panied by a large number of relatives and friends from this city, including A. M. Gardner and wife, Wesley Weeks and wife, John Stubbs and wife and Joseph Dickinson. Street Commissioner Genn reports that the advance of rates for labor and teams makes it cost the city f 20.30 per week more than formerly to clean the streets and alleys. The keeping of the alleys in decant shape is harder than usual, too. on account of everything freezing up so it has to be loosened with picks. Two men with picks are sent through the al leys about two squares ahead of the teams and break the stuff up that is to be removed, and the haulers fol low on and remove it. The snow is adding to the work also, as places where there would be a possibility of stopping up the sewers, in case of a thaw or sudden rain, require much attention to keep them in shape to avoid damage . Men's i 50 vict shoe? Rjeat $2.60 at Williams' fire sale. The busiaess men and clerks who wore burnt cork at the minstrels last night furnished lots of sport to dav. The burnt oork was applied liberally and with tbe enthusiasm of amateurs, with no thought of how it was to be gotten off again. Burnt cork sticketh like a brother in such cases, and some of the performers were unable to get it ail off again. Some were waiting on customers to dav with blacK rings around their necks; others had an ear that would do credit to Ham himself; others carried little beauty spots on their cheeks and noses that werestartlmg ly cute. Charley Tennis did business with a rainbow on his massive brow that will probably have to remain there wi til the skin comes off. Go to HanerVfor correct fitting A eye glasses. 1 R. Cbeesman of Hagerstown is in tbe city. Miss Martha Pierce of Ft. Wavne is in the city visiting her sister.Mrs. Alex Reid. M. C. Price has sold the Ol Gaar farm to J. S. Harris, son of Allen Harris, who will occupy it. Mr Price only owned the farm about 3t hours. The center piece of the next con cert of the Musical club will be two scenes from Tannhauser, sung bv Frank Braffett, with an orchestra of twelve pieces. Earl Mann returned this morning from a most successful trip through Indiana and Michigan for the Partel Co. He says business is excellent and buyers in good spirits all through the section which he visited. Mr. and Mrs. Willi im Dicks.north seventh strtet, were married thirty five years yesterday. A few friends dropped in last night and reminded them of the fact in a pleasant man ner. The evening was sput most enjoyably. Clarence Gennett went to Indi anapolis today to be present at the opening of the new Starr piano rooms in that city, which are the finest piano parlors in Indiana and among the finest in America. The rooms match the piano. The cry is arising again for the better cleaning of the sidewalks, which are in a very bad condition from the snow all over town. The city paid 750 damages to a lady breaking her arm by a fall from this cause, but it seems hard to avoid such things. Mrs. E B. Price pother of M. C. Pricj, will tomorrow celebrate her Hijth birthday anflifefrary. Mrs Price, in spite of heraivanced age, is in fair health and enpys life as well as she ever did. She has lived with her son in this city for ten years, on south eighth street. Sbiveley fc Shiveley today file the suit of Benjamin Price vs. Paul F, Sauer and John F. Miller to fore close a chattel mortgage; de mand, $200. The complaint al leges that in Sept. 1901. Sauer bor rowed $187 from Price, giving his note and a mortgage on 54 sheep, two horses and a buggy. The note is still unpaid and Sauer has parted with the sheep to Miller, whence the suit. The Hon. W. D. Foulke is in the city for the day, but leaves tonight for Washington again. His family is leaving for Jeckyll Island, Georgia, to remain for two months and he came home to see them away, all but his daughter Carrie, who is with him in Wathington City. Mr. Foulke looks well and not - at all over-fed Being joked as to that he laughed and replied, "Don't get time. The President works hard himself and gives the balance of us all we can do, too. But I like it very much. " Last evening the home of Alfred Weishaupt, 444 south sixth street, was invaded by a nondescript party of masquers, who called to help him celebrate his birthday anniversary, which didn't transpire last evening at all and won't for a month to come. The party were not at all discon certed at the mixing of dates, but were there for a time and had it. Among the least distinguished peo ple present in costume were George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and even Prince Henry. The party brought a fine lunch in baskets, and the evening was passed with music, dancing and feasting. Fairy sticks, crisp and dainty, at Prices. itchier Kept Rny. Louisville, Jan. 31. Admiral Schley cs the guest of the Louisville Knights Templar had little opportunity to rest yesterday. From 10 o'clock in the morning, when he visited th girls' high school, until he left the Templar ball at the Gait House at midnight, every moment of his time was occu pied. The greater portion of the day was spent among children, and the admiral shook hands with about 1.000 boys and girls, who expressed their pleasure by cheering their visitor and presenting him with nowers.

Little Boy's Lite Saved. I have a few words to say regard ing Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It saved my little boy's life and I feel that I cannot praise it enough. I bought a bottle of it from A.

I gave the medicine as directed every ten min utes until he "tnrew up" and thn I thought" sure he was gnng to choke to death. Whe had to pull tbe phlegm out of his mouth in great long strings. I am positive that if I had not got that bottle of cough medicine, my boy would not be on earth today. Joel Demost, In wood. Iowo. For sale bv A. G. Luken Co. and W. A. Sudhoff. druggists. House Pawn the Permanent CentM Rurrau Kill. - Washington. Jan. 31. Yesterday's session of tbe " senate was entirely devoid of the tumultuous scenes which characterized the sessions of the past three days. After the Philippine tariff treasure was taken up at 2 o'clock, Mr. Tillman delivered a speech almost entirely devoted to a discussion of the part his state took in the war for the Independence of the colonies. Inci dentally he referred occasionally ta the pending bill, drawing morals as he said for the benefit or the majority that they might be applied to the Philippines. Prior to taking up the Philippine bill the senate passed a number of unobjected-to bills of the calendar. The house passed the bill for the creation of a permanent census bu reau. The friends of the civil service law, who were opposed to making the employes of the bureau eligible for transfer or retention, were overwhelm ingly defeated. By the terms of the bill the permanent organization will succeed the present temporary organ ization July 1. 1902. and all employes on the rolls upon the date of the pas sage of the act will become eligible for transfer to other departments or retention in the permanent organiza tion. The bill also provides for manufacturing census in 1905 and for the collection of certain special statis tics annually. Early in the session a bill was passed for the protection of the lives of miners in the territories. HIKING THROUGH SAMAR Nothine to Sav, Siys Sch Paris. Jan. 31. Charles M. Schwab, president of the U. S. Steel corpor ation, was seen here yesterday in connection with the Wall street rumor that he had resigned the presidency of that concern.

Hardships of American Soldiers Fighting Fihpinos. MAEC3IM 13 E5DLES3 RAINS. Lincoln Told a Story. At one-time a friend complained t President Lincoln that a certain cabi net officer was administering his offief with unusual energy with the hope oi securing the presidential nomination. "That reminds me," said Mr. Lincoln "that my brother and 1 were once plow inc a field with a lazy horse, but ai times he rushed across the field so fasi i lUitl 1 CUUIU Uil E U i V kefp up VWLil 11 1 111 At Inst I found an enormous chin flj on him and knocked it off.

Lynch law In its usual meaning la mid to be traceable to a Galway wor thy. In 1403 one James FitzStepheo Lynch, a mayor of that city, sentenced his own son to death for murder and, fearing a rescue, had the culprit brought home and hanged before his own door. The tradition may be found alluded to in Thackeray's "Irish Sketch Book." There are critics, however, who say that tbe law was in Its origin essentially American, and they date it back to Charles Lynch, a Virginian planter of the seventeenth century. Bat Be Weakened.

Hfwbfr of a Colamn Commanded r Captain Jarkaon Tell, ef Wadtna: Snollea Rlrrri, FlRhtlntt Lrrchn and Doddag Mantrap Insraloaa Los Trap Safely Avoided. The expedition just returned com jeised about 4,10 men moving in eight columns, all under command of Cap tain Jackson. First infantry, who com manded the main column, writes tha Mauo Samar correspondent of the Mauila American undtr the date ot Nov. 30. TUe hike performed by tbla column is deserving of mention aa prob ably the longest ever made by Amer ican troops in Samar. Tbe men were absent from their station about eight een days and covered nearly 150 miles. On the tenth day out over two-thirds of the men were unable to proceed on account of exhaustion and sore feet, and two days' rest was taken In camp. The coiamns were ordered to con verge toward Mount I'uros, a water shed about thirty miles from the west and fifty miles from the north coast of Samar. Simultaneously with this move troops were ordered to make a demon stration all over Samar in order to prevent the enemy fleeing to the south and east. The expedition "cleaned up, so to speak, an approximate total of 50 insurgents killed, 'M prisoners taken. 4 rebel strongholds and 20 barrios de stroyed, 5(X) sacks of rice and 50 cara bao captured. Tbe column from Mauo. under Cap tain Jackson, had for its sole purpose the capture of Lukban. It consisted ot twenty llocano scouts and fifteen men of Company I First infantry. Tb little column left Mauo at 7 o'clock ou the morning of Nov. 15 In a pouring rain. It may be added that from tbot time on to Nov. 23. eight days, dry feet and dry clothing were unknown. After three hours march iufi toward tbe interior, half of which was through ricenelds in deep mud. the Catipunan river was reached, which at this place was very deep and swift. The river was split In three channels by two rocks. It was found necessary to bridge the first channel, which was done by fastening one end of a log to the shore, the other to the rock. A rope of bojuck, a strong vine, was stretched as a band rail, and on this log. submerged several inches by the force of -the current, the channel was crossed. The other two channels were only breast deep and were forded, the big fellows helping the little ones. The hike was resumed early the next morning, and on this day I had a chance la see what biking In Samar was like. , On this day also I had my first experience with the gentle and seductive Samar leech. When we were not wading in tbe beds of mountain brooks, we were climbing the sides of mountains or else floundering In mo rasses. Hill succeeded hill in endless succession, and not until night, when we made camp at the foot of a beauti ful waterfall, were the limits of our vision extended to more than fifty yards before cut off by hills. ' Through out this as the previous day there was no sight of any human habitation. During the day we covered less than a mile an hour, the men being obliged to join hands and pull one another over the steep places. On the nest day. Nov. 17. the leeches made their appearance In force. These little pests are found only on the moun tain elope, never la the valleys. They are about an Inch and a quarter In length, of the thickness of a knitting needle, and when they walk they bump themselves. They reach the soldiers from the grass and bamboo bushes and quickly enter leggings and shoes through the lnceboles and fasten them selves upon the legs, usually about the ankles. They absorb blood until about the size of a man's finger, when they loosen their hold and drop off. leaving an open wound which bleeds for hours. I have seen a soldier pick as mauy as thirty of these off his legs and ankles at night, and. as each puncture leaves a small bleeding wound, tbe loss of blood is sometimes quite serious. The natives, being barelegged, acquire more leeches than the American sol diers, but. for tbe same reason, see tbem sooner and pick them off before serious damage baa been done. In addition to tbe pest of leeches, we now began to find many mantraps pits dug in the earth, with poisoned spear points pointing upward, and tbe whole covered over with leaves. There were also spring guns set so that when the trigger was released a javelin would be discharged, taking effect In the abdomen of tbe victim. Many of the men fell Into tbe spear pita, but none was seriously hurt. In crossing one small mountain we came upon a most ingenious log trap. The road was cut narrow and clean, a precipice on one side and a steep bank on the other. Half way up the mountain three pits were dug in tbe road, and on the top was a pile of logs s balanced that it could be easily set rolling down tbe road. Having passed tbe pits, tbe logs were supposed to be set off by a lookout. With a precipice on one side and a sheer cliff on tbe other, three spear pits liehind and ten tons of logs bonnding down the way In front, what is a man to do if be don't know bow to fly? Thi trap bad been broken before we reached the mountain, and wa passed in safety. o o Troosers From the sheep to the man.
