If we sell good underwear for women, isn't it reasonable to suppose S that we sell as good, if not better un- ^ derwear for men?

By Mercedes in St. Xavier's Journal. On the hills of the "Beautiful River!" She sits like a dusky Queen! She trails her gown o'er the grimy town, With a royal grace, X ween! Her foundries are roaring with fury, Her mills are aglow with light. But the dusky Queen, ever smiling, is seen. Through the fiery names at night. Her streets are like swarming beehives. All seething with human toil. But the smoke and flame and the crimson rain Seem never her face to spoil!. Her hills are green on their- summits, With a river on either side, And far away where her home-nests lay She has palaces grand and wide! She has parks and boulevards dainty; She has churches and houses of prayer; She has belfrys and towers, where sweet chimes ring. And gladness and joy are there. She has children fair and merry, -And women as lovely as dreams, She has men as brave as the flag that waves O'er the hills where her beauty gleams. Her Captains of Industry lead, Her rivers are crowded with wealth And the dusky diamonds she scatters abroad. She never handles by stealth! She is broad as her generous rivers, -S V. ore out* JS> pxuuu aa WC1 umo a<Q And the name of this Queen, and her glory, I ween, ts as grrand as the stars in the sky! MINISTER DIES TO SAVE A BOY.

Scattered thunder-showers occurred on tho 25th, 2Gth and 27th, and a fairly good rain fell on Sunday night. The mean temperature averaged about three degrees per day above the normal, and, the rainfall and sunshine were about normal. The wjbather of the week has been the most favorable of the season for crop growth (sunshine, warmth and moisture being ample) but not so ia vorable for farm work. The season is about three weeks behind. Wheat | and rye are heading but prospect for light crop. Some early corn and potatoes are being worked, but it is generally too wet for cultivation; corn is about all planted, and Is coming up, but the nights have ben rather too cool for growth. Oats, meadows and pastures have made very rapid growth. Potatoes are doing well, and stock Is in fine condition. Gardens have also made excellent growth Considerable complaint is made of injury to vegetables by cut worms. Apples, pears and cherries are reported as falling considerably, but the prospects are for a good fruit crop of all kinds. Northern Section.

BALTIMORE, Mi., June- 1.?It is the general opinion among medical experts that Mayor Me Lane did not have the slightest thought ot suicide until his eye caught the pistol lying on his bureau.

AND ROWED OUT FROM SHORE?POLICE MAKING AN INVESTIGATION. ! WHEELING, \V. Va., June 1.?The strange actions of four men seen coming out of an alley between Fortysecond and Forty-third streets about 1 o'clock this morning carrying a bundle from which came groans, their caution and stealth, all point to foul play, for the bundle was afterwards weighted, and thrown, into the Ohio These suspicious cbaraci ers were Srst seen coming out of the alley foy ,he engineer and fireman at the power iouso of the Wheeling Traction Company near Forty-second and Water streets. Their every move was: watch;d by these two men, themselves unjbserved. And while they watched hey heard a groan come from the jundte. which required four men to tarry. It would have been useless to have attempted to Interfere with the "our strangers. Stealthily the men crept down to the river, placed their burden in a skiff, and then, as an. after thought, weighted the package, whatever it may have contained, down with, stones, so as to forever hide it from mortal eye. The boat was pushed as from shore, hut not before they had seeti that their actions were obnrved. This put them on their g.uarii, and they rov.-ed down the riyier for n distance of about three blocks and then stopped. It was impossible 10 see what they were doing, :and believing it fully time to call in outside help, the police were summoned, When those who were watching the skiff and its occupants returned to look for them they had disappeared. At a late hour this morning the police had not heen able to unravel the mystery. The police searched every nook and corner along the bank from Fortythird street to Forty-eighth, but without result. Every little detail of that quartette's action from the time they slunk out of the alley until they disappeared is suspicious, and daylight may produce something sensational. A Gold Strike.
