BLOW TO LAKES TO GULF CANAL Army Engineers Ready to Decide Unfavorably. REPORT IS FOR CONGRESS Mississippi Channel Seems to Be the Stumbling Block—Known Attitude of Experts Is That Cost of Putting Through a Waterway of Fourteen Feet Would Not Be Warranted by the Estimated Commercial Advant ages to Be Gained. From the known attitude of promi nent army officials rn Washington the impression has been gained that the unanimous report of the armv board of engineers on the proposed Mississippi deep waterway project from St. Louis to the Gulf of Mexico, which probably will be before con gress before the end of next week, takes the general ground that the com mercial interests of the case do not warrant the expenditure of the vast suras which would be required to con struct and maintain the proposed waterway. Debate in congress evidently has had the effect of expediting the con sideration of the question by the board of engineers, for it has been announc ed that they have completed their re port, which is now in the hands of the chief of engineers of the army, Gen eral William L. Marshall. According to law, the board was authorized to pass on the data collect ed by a special board created by con gress to examine the Mississippi river below St. Louis for the purpose of col lecting the data to enable the army en gineers to reach a conclusion, with a view of recommending action. The report of the board will not be made public until after it has gone to congress. General Marshall will take pains to have the report placed in the hands of congress as soon as possible, in view of the criticisms that were made of the engineers. Secretary Dickinson will have the report before him and, after consultations may forward the report immediately to congress. The proposed deep waterway from St. Louis to the gulf is a part of the great project to connect the great lakes with the gulf by a channel suf ficient to accommodate large craft throughout the year. According to the legislation adopt ed by congress when it authorized the survey of the Mississippi, the engi neers were to collect data on the con struction of a channel 14 feet deep.

It is evident from the comment be low, found in “Gleanings After Time,’’ that there is nothing new to be said on the servant question: Defoe, castigating the extravagances of his time, fell foul of the downward spread of fashion. His theme was a familiar one—the heinousuess of a servant girl's attempt to imitate her mistress’ costume. “Her neat leathern shoes.” Defoe's amusing indictment runs, “are uow transformed into laced ones with high heels, her yarn stockings are turned into the woolen ones with silk clocks, and her high wooden pattens are kick ed away for leathern clogs. She must have a hoop, too, as well as her mis tress, and her poor linsey woolsey pet ticoat is changed into a good silk one. four or five yards wide at the least. Not to carry the description further, in short, plain country Joan is now turned into a fine city madam, can drink tea, take snuff and carry herself as high as the best.” Vivisecting Thieves. Breaking into houses where funerals have Just taken place and plundering them is spoken of by the Berliner Tageblatt as a trick of. the thieves of that city. While this may be a new’ form of criminality in Berlin, says the writer, it is really only an imitation of an incident described by Dion Cassius as having taken place 2.500 years be fore Christ. The historian says that when the consort of the emperor was laid away in the mausoleum at Memphis a band of Greek marauders entered the deserted palace of the pharaoh and took all the precious stones and metals and the women slaves and reached the banks pf the Red sea with their plunder. Only two of the band were captured, and they were turned over by the ruler to the wise men. by whom they were vivi sected in the interest of science. No matter how much the robbers of the modern houses of mourning may be despised, they ueed not fear that form of punishment. Her Answer. An Atchison girl had a proposal of marriage and asked a week to think It over. She went to all of her mar ried sisters. One, who used to be a belle, had three children, did all her own work and hadn’t been to the theater or out riding since she was married. Another, whose husband was a promising young man at the time she was married, was supporting him. A third didn’t dare say her life was her own when her husband was around, and a fourth was divorced. After vis iting them and hearing their woes the heroine of this little tale went home, got pen, Ink and paper and wrote an answer to the young man. You may think it was refusing him, but it wasn’t. She said she could be ready in a month.—Atchison Globe. J.M.BSP The M ** ** * n ST -- ini j) WIS. ) WE KEEP THE QUALITY UP,K Ready" to-Wear Garments. Attractive Prices are making busi ness for us.

Spoiled His Taste. “A friend of mine,” said a Montana man, “is defending a damage suit for being a party to making a man take the liquor cure without his consent. This man had been on a protracted spree of several weeks, and. his busi ness was going to the dogs. My friend thought it would be a kindly thing to send him to a sanitarium for treat ment. He did so, and the man was given the cure for the whisky habit When he was discharged from the sanitarium the first thing he did was to go to a saloon. He called for whis ky. He tasted it, but did not fancy the flavor of it He set his distaste of it down to the cure he had been given by my friend’s orders and imme diately began suit for $50,000 dam ages. He says in his complaint that he had a highly cultivated and dis criminating taste for whisky, which had taken years to develop, and that was spoiled by the cure.

Rings as a Protection. “I used to be surprised,” said a clerk in a high class jewelry establishment, “when a woma." whom I knew was un married would come in and coolly se lect a handsome solitaire diamond ring, the sort usually sold for an engage ment ring, and then, quite as a matter of course, buy a plain gold band of the wedding ring variety. I couldn’t un derstand it at first, but now I’ve learned that many unmarried women think two such rings, worn when trav eling, for instance, serve about the same purpose as a chaperon. I had a case the other day where a mother came in with her unmarried daughter —a pretty girl hardly out of her teens —and bought two such rings. From their conversation I learned that the girl wsfs to take the trip to the Pacific coast unaccompanied, and the mother evidently thought if her daughter was protected by her rings she’d not be so apt to be criticised for being alone.
