DEATH OF AMBASSADOR REID.
Whitelaw Reid, the American am bassador to Great Britain since 1905, died at his London residence, Dor chester house, last Sunday from pul monary oedema. Whitelaw Reid was in his seventy sixth year, having been born Oct. 27, 1837, in Xenia, O. He became a news paper writer as a young man and never broke off his connection with the public press. He was editor-in chief of the New York Tribune for many years and afterward became proprietor of that journal. In the meantime, however, his career had been a varied one. He served in the first campaigns of the. civil war in 861 and then as war correspondent, in which capacity he was present at many of the im portant battles. At one time he was librarian of the house of representa tives, at another he was a cotton planter in Louisiana. Later in life he went into the dip lomatic service and went to France as United States minister in 1889, re maining until 1892. During that peri od he did some important diplomatic work in securing the rescinding of the decree prohibiting the importation of American meats into France, and also in negotiating the reciprocity and extradition treaties between the United States and France. He came back to the United States to run as the republican candidate for vice-president on the ticket with President Harrison. Some years later, in 1897, he was sent as special ambassador to Great Britain to attend the celebration of the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria. His next important work was as special commissioner to the Paris conference which negotiated peace between the United States and Spain. In 1902 he was again appointed spe cial ambassador to Great Britain for the coronation of King Edward VII, with whom he was always on the most friendly terms. He was chosen in March, 1905, United States ambassador to Great Britain in succession to Joseph M. Choate. Most Beautiful Calendar of the Year.

An item from Cornell college tells of a recent rendition of Handel's "Messiah" at that institution in the chorus of which Miss Loretta VanNess sang as one of the sopranos. Only thoroughly trained voices of good quality are used in this great oratorio at Cornell, the solo parts of which were this year taken by Dorothea North, soprano Esther May Plumb, contralto Wr. Clare Hall, tenor, and Gustaf Holmquist, basso. Miss Van Ness therefore deserves the congratu lations of her friends over her pro gress in music. J. W. Miller, Jr. made a deal last week with Mr. Carl F. Kuehnle of the Bank of Deniscn by which he pur chased Mr. Kuelmle's set of abstract books. This gives Mr. Miller two com plete sets of abstract books and he in tends in making abstracts to use the one set and check the same against the other set and thus avoid any pos sibility of making a mistake. The making of abstracts is a responsible and particular piece of work and Mr. Miller is fortunate in getting the possession of two complete sets of books and have a safe and reliable method of making abstracts. This protection is worth as much and means as much to the purchaser of an abstract as it does to the maker and examiner of the records. We understand that the city author ities have decided on a thorough clean up of the city. For this we are pleased and hope the "clean up" will be complete and the order enforced. One matter they should not overlook and that is the throwing of ashes on the street. The practice is a very bad one and a source of great annoy ance to shoppers and pedestrians in general. It is not an unusual sight to see a merchant run out with a pan of ashes, dump the contents on the street and soon a lady comes along, a gust of wind catches the ash pile and the lady is covered with dust and dirt. Ash cans are not expensive and each tenant ol* property owner should provide himself with one. We un derstand there is an ordinance pro viding against the throwing of ashes on the streets and it should be en forced. A Heart Shaped Workbag For the Induitrioui Little Girl. HRART SHAPED BAG.
