Newpaper cartoons have become a most popular feature of up-to-date metropolitan daily newspapers. The unique and catchy drawing now appearing daily on the front page of the Chicago Record Herald is one of the many special features of the great paper. The Chicago-Record Herald has been fortunate in securing one of the best young artists in the country to^carry out its popular policy of pre senting each day a humor and good nntured cartoon. Mr. Ralph Wil der. His success has been as pro nonced as it has been rapid. He :4^ajpapfl^'Mtaredi humor and the brighter side of everyday common life which has carried his work to a very popular success. His drawings are on all the various subjects on popular inerest political and otherwise. Current events are vividly por trayed in a way' that pleases, yet often giving just criticism in away that does not attend. Through his excellent work on eastern maga zines Mr. Wilder first attracted uni ersal attention. The Chicago Record Herald recognizes in him at one* a cartoonist of universal promise, and conrgatlates its readers on having been fortunate enough to engage him. A CORRECTION AND EXPLANATION Last week in the writeup in the Advance of the unfortunate lire in the Congregational church, the fire department was put in a bad light through the phraseology of the writer in expressing himself. The article made it appear that the lire department, after learning they had no water, broke in a window to give the fire a draft so the build ing would burn before water was obtained. The wrier had no such thought, nor did he hear any such criticism. What he inended to say Vas that the hydrants being frozen and the window broken a draft was one unfortunate condition follow ing another. The writer did not intend to intimate that any person was at fault in any way whatever. The Advance, like every citizen of this place, has nothing but words of commendation of the most em phasizing character for the service rendered by the fire department on each and every occasion. The de partment is composed of our best citizen* men of good judgment, find the Advance knows of no reason for aasting any reflections on the organization as a company or its members individually in the recent tire and regrets that a wrong impression was given.

Chanoe Remark of 71m Flood Bring* Xuin to His Eavesdropping ChrdMtr. San Francisco.—In the old days of excitement, when mining stocks were on the Jump and men became million aire* over, one day's dabbling, an in cident occurred-.at the country resi dence of James C. Sloed, in Menlo, when a fairly well-to-do farmer found himself without a home in the short period of one week. The man's name was Hank, and being a irst-class gar dener, he readily found employment about the residences of the wealthy owners of mansions, in this way he was employed at the Flood residence. Hank was loitering about the garden one Saturday evening as the proprie tor, in company with a visitor, was looking over the stocn. Mr. Flood had just stepped out of the hog corral, casually remarked to his friend that he would be willing to bet that "Con would go up to 300 be fore Christmas." Hank constructed "Con" to mean Consolidated Virginia, Md' t*king the Up. which he would mftke him a miiiionaire,thought he lorado and brought her back, ioe8 he incidentally mentioned to New York.—Penny vaudeville is the JatjMt in, 4eep amusements in this and oTthfebnitsa States. It is nothing more than a de velopment of the old penny-in-the-slot Idea, with up-to-date inventions and con trivances. The business began in a modest way in Buffalo about 12 years ago. Two young men opened a small place, filled It with phonographs and charged five cents to hear the reproduction of a song. Later they introduced the mutoscope, or moving pictures. The enterprise prospered. With the invention of other automatic contriv ances the business was Increased and finally found Its way te New York. To-day the originators of the idea are at the head of a stock company capital ized at 1500,000, with branches in all the principal cities. Not long ago the idea was taken up in Europe, where it has been Just as successful. About Ave years ago the price to en Joy the attractions was out to one cent An idea of the magnitude and profit of Um business, even at this price, may be had from the fact that it costs from $26, 000 to $150,000 to fit up a complete penny vaudeville hall. The machines cost from $50 to$l,600 each. Europe contributes lera used in these shows. Funeral services were held over the remains of Miss Cree, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Cree, who have lived here for a number of, considerable in the way of the novelttss years and who has won a large num ber of friends in this city, and after along sick spell passed from them. The phonographs and moving pictures are the most popular attractions, but the athletic machines, such as strength test ers, punching bags, muscle developers, etc., are all well patronized. The average daily attendance at these halls may be anything between 5,000 and 85,000, according to the location. WOMAN GOOD BLACKSMITH Can Shoe a Horse as Well as Broil a Steak—Learns Trade While Watching Husband. Prescott, Ariz.—Arizona has a "lady blacksmith," believed to be the only "new woman" who has thus far en croached upon an occupation considered solely and purely masculine. She is Mrs. Molly Thompson White, wife of H. B. White, a prosperous blacksmith, run ning his own shop in Prescott "My husband used to run a shop at In dependence, in the Cripple Creek dis trict of Colorado," she explained. "Hav ing no children, when my housework was done I would take 'my sewing and go out into the Shop, rather than be alone. There I worked in by degrees, helping when I could, pumping the bel lows and handling tools, progressing from one thing to another till I had learned every branch of the trade. I can shoe a horse and shape a hoof, too, but my husband is afraid I will get hurt, and generally prefers to do the shoeing him self." Mrs. White is a comely woman, of less than middle age, clearly possessed of superb health and of the strength that comes from healthful exercise. After the toil of the week she is every ready to tramp the hills on Sundays after small game, and boasts that her aim is much surer than that of her sturdy hus band. This he admits, in evident pride nia feeiter. but stoutiv claims ure- W dis- posed of his holding of 350 acres of fine land, his stock and, in brief, ev erything he had on earth, except his wife and four bright little Hanks. The proceeds he invested in Consolidated Virginia stock, which was then selling at $75 a share. Christmas came, but Instead of "Con" going to 9300 it fell to $25. 1% man was a pauper. In lamenting his friend of Flood's how he lost all. Flood, who was generous to a fault, sent for Hank and had him repeat his story. When he learned of his chance remark about "Con going up to 300 be fore Christmas" he fairly shook with laughter and explained what it meant. It was in* reference to the gift of the young sow, made a present to him by "Con" O'Conner, who, in the fun of the thing, had called the pig "Con." The bet alluded to the sow's increase in weight to 300 pounds before Christ mas and not to Consolidated Virginia. PENNY VAUDEVILLE.

Mysterious Community Discovered ia Turkestan Whose Rulers Are Fair Haired and Caucasian. St. Petersburg.—A Russian explore* who has )ust returned here after two years' wanderings in eastern Turkestan, where no European has ever been be fore, gave an interesting lecture on his experiences before the Imperial Gee* raphical society. The explorer, M. Koznireff, declaree at in the great Tarlm desert on the north of Kashmir he has discovered a mixed Caucasian and' Mongolian race ruled over by a family of purely Euro pean appearances and customs. "In a large oasis near the River jKhotan," he says, "I came upon a Euro pean town—that is, a town which would ihave been European in the middle agea. Guna, as is the name of the town, has Inearly 3.000 inhabitants, all with adis jtinctly European cast of features. They spoke a Turkish dialect which I did not understand, and were very attentive to ime, though they took my two native guides to the outskirts of the town and promptly put them in jail. The chief, or king, of this little state and all his near relatives, are purely European in jphysique, complexion and manners. The !king, wearing a tunic and a garment not unlike a Roman toga, received me in a large adobe house and conversed with me by signs. He was a handsome, fair haired man of about 50. When I tried to find out whether he knew anything* of the origin of his people he declared that their ancestors had come from the west, ibut would or could give no further in formation." INDIAN TALKS ON INDIANS. Henry C. Cloud, an Educated Winne bago, Declares His Race Is Ca pable of Improvement. Philadelphia, Pa.—Henry C. Cloud, a full-bred Winnebago Indian, delivered an address at a public meeting of the Indian association hmrm Hm nth*.- m.* here the other day. He chose as his theme the growing sentiment against the Indian as a worker, either mental or physical. He said: "When an Indian is being educated •he Is taught that his people are inferior to the whites, and consequently he ,gradually estranges himself from his jfamily and countrymen.! Finding* then, that he can not intermingle with "a whites, either in a social or bust iess way, he has no place.to turn. The ^Indians aire not all drunkards, and do inot lack intelligence, but show highly (developed mental traits when given the opportunity. This has been proved by jthose of our race who have reached |hlgh positions in this country. "There is only one sure and radical jsolution to the Indian question, and that is through this missionary asso ciation, first, by their Influence upon ithe government in the interests of the red man, and, second, by eliminating the Great Spirit from his soul and in stilling him with the Christ spirit."

Prank Sturgis of Strong, Sturgls A Co. consulted, a doctor not long ago and was advised to go away to some resort for a good long rest. Mr. Stur gis expressed his contempt for the ad vice something like this: "Rest—Shucks I What else have I been doing for the past six months For a real, right-down, thorough-going rest give me Wall street in the sum mer of 1903.
