Was there ever a comic opera without a varia tion of the merry, merry milkmaid chorus? An airship passenger service be tween London and Paris is being talked of. People who expect to take that route should go to the trouble of Qrst learning to swim. And now they say that either a pho fiograph or a pretty singing milkmaid furnishing music in the stall makes a cow give more milk. The cow's artistic discernment is apparently not highly developed. It is estimated that over 15,000,000 words were spoken during the recent session of congress. All honor should be shown the stenographers who stayed at their posts and listened to every one of them.

Also the dean might have told us how the king's tomatoes are coming on. The poor should be remembered this "hot weather, for their sufferings are considerable.

The discovery of defective armoi plate on the battleships Utah and North Dakota after the ships had been commissioned has caused agitation in the navy department favorable to a plan for the inspection of the plating of every battleship in service.

A pair of muscular arms applied to a sweep would soon re-establish confidence after accident by giving the disabled craft motion enough to creep toward shore.

KNIGHTS TEMPLAR Chicago.—Marching to the music of forty-two bands and the almost equal ly melodious cheers of hundreds of thousands of their relatives, friends and admirers, some 50,000 Knights Templar took part August 9 in the greatest parade ever held by the or der. Their waving plumes and fine uniforms were fittingly set off by the beautiful decorations of the. streets and buildings, and the scene was one that will not soon be forgotten by those •who were fortunate enough to witness it. This magnificent parade was the climax, in a spectacular way, of the thirty-first triennial conclave of (Knights Templar, which opened here pn Sunday, Aug. 7. In accordance with the time honored custom of the grand encampment, the doings of the week began with divine service. Begin With Divine Service. The sir knights selected Orchestra •hall for this purpose and entirely filled Acting Grand Master Melish. the body of that hall to listen to a sermon on "Templarism" delivered by Rev. Dr. George H. Mac Adam of Madi son, Wis., in the absence of Sir Knight George C. Rafter of Cheyenne, *Wyo., very eminent grand prelate of the grand encampment. The music was in charge of the grand organist of the grand commandery of Illinois, the choir consisting of several male quar tets belonging to the order in this state. The Grand Encampment of the United States marched to the hall es 'corted by sir knights of the various commanderles of Cook county, com manded by Benjamin S. Wilson, chair man of the escort committee. In many of the leading churches of the city special services were held which were attended by visiting knights and their families. Monday was devoted mainly to the receiving of the grand and subordinate commanderles and escorting them to their hotels. It is estimated that fully 100,000 visitors came with the knights and that about 300,000 other excur sionists have flocked to the city this week in consequence of the conclavte. Of course every hotel was thronged and thousands of the visitors found quarters in private residences. On Monday evening all the local and visiting commanderies kept open house at their respective headquar ters, and many of the visitors found their way to the various amusement parks and the theaters. Parade of The Knights. The "grand parade" of Tuesday was the largest parade of Knights Templar ever held. Thfe preparations were elaborate and Michigan boulevard was most elaborately decorated. The sir knights formed in line of march on the boulevard south of Thirty-first street, and signal to move was given by the guns of Battery B, I. N. G., the detachment for the purpose being composed of Knights Templar all of whom are members of the battery. The same detachment fired the salute to the grand master. Marching northward in Michigan boulevard, the parade passed, near Hubbard court, beneath an entrance arch built in the form of an ancient battlement with its towers and tur rets. This was intended to represent the entrance to the city, and as the coiumn passed under it, buglers sta tioned on Its heights heralded the ap proach of each grand division. Next the knights came abreast of the first grand stand, one-half mile in length, and this needed no decora tions, for it was filled to its capacity mainly with ladies whose beautiful summer costumes made it like a vast garden. About 50,000 persons were in this Immense stand, as at its center [was a gorgeous throne on which sat [the acting grand master, William romwell Melish of Cincinnati, who iecame head of the order on the re |cent death of Grand Master Henry W. •Rugg of Providence, R. I. Mr. Melish will be regularly elected grand master before the close of the conclave. 1 Just north of the Art Institute the I':*' :t Great Conclave Presided Over by Acting Grand Master Melish—Wonderful Parade Through Elaborately Decorated Streets Is the Most Spectacular Feature. parade passed before another review ing stand in which were Mayor Busse, the city council and the park commis sioners. Beautiful "Templar Way." At Washington street the ^marchers turned west to State, where they en tered on the "Templar Way." This stretch extended from Randolph to Van Buren street and was made beau tiful by a handsome arch and massive jlorinthian columns of pure white erected thirty-three feet apart on both sides oi the street. Festoons of natur al laurel connected t^ie columns, and the bright red cross and the shield and coat -of arms of the order were prominent in the scheme of decora tion. Moving south to Jackson boulevard, the knights a grain turned west, and near the federal building passed be fore yet another reviewing stand which accommodated Governor Deneen and his staff. Marching north on La Salle street, the parade passed be neath the grand commandery arch of pure white «which spanned the street at the La Salle hotel, the headquarters of the grand commandery of Illinois. This was a beautiful structure de signed by one of Chicago's most fa mous sculptors. Upon Its top stood the figures of mounted knights 'four teen feet high. At the new city hall on Washington street the parade was dismissed, after marching forty-three blocks. Care For the Marchers. Everything that could be thought of for the comfort of the paraders and the spectators was done by the local committees. In nearly every block along the line of march were station ed physicians who were also knights templar, with trained nurses and equipment for emergency cases. In addition, emergency hospitals to be kept open day and night during the conclave were established at many points in the center of the city, and at the West Side ball park which was selected as the place for the competi tive drills. Wednesday and Thursday were the days set apart for the drills for which handsome trophies are awarded, and band concerts, sight seeing and many receptions were on the program. Entrancing Scenes at Night. The scene in the streets at night was especially beautiful, for all the arches, festoons and columns of the decorative scheme were brilliantly il luminated, and on State street, in ad dition to the "Templar Way," the mer chants had put up decorations that transformed the great shopping dis trict into a veritable fairly land. Undoubtedly the most spectacular feature of the night display was the wonderful electric set piece erected in Grant park on the lake front, re producing in colossal size the official emblem or badge of the conclave. It was 150 feet high and its 5,000 power- Grand Generalissimo MacArthur. ful electric lights of varied colors brilliantly illuminated all that part of the city.- Much of the success of the conclave must be attributed to the efforts of John D.

THE BEST OF IT8 KIND Is always advertised, in fact it only pays to advertise good things. When you see an article advertised in this paper year after year you can be absolutely certain that there is merit to it because the con tinued sale of any article depends upon' merit and to keep on advertising one» must keep on selling. All gooit- things have imitators, but imitations are not ad vertised. They have no reputation to sus tain, they never expect to have any per manent sale and your dealer would never sell them if he studied your interests. Sixteen years ago Allen's Foot-Ease, the antiseptic Powder for the feet, was first sold, and through newspaper advertising and through people telling each other What a good thing it was for tired and' achihg feet it has now a permanent sale, and aearly 200 so-called foot powders have been put on the market with the hope of profiting by the reputation which has been built up for Allen's Foot-Ease. When you ask for an article advertised In these papers see that you get it. Avoid substitutes. It Wouldn't Stretch. The assessor was doing the very best he could, but the farmer was shrewd and wary. "How many acres of farming land have you?" he inquired warily. 'Bout 20, I guess." said Reuben. "Twenty! Why, it looks to me like neater 120. Come, now, can't you in crease that a little? There are surely more than 20 acres in that tract. Sup pose you stretch that a little." "Say, feller," said the farmer, "this ain't no rubber plantation."—Harper's Monthly. What They Did With Them.

A COOL PROPOSITION And a Sure One. The Body Does Not Feel Heat Unpleasantly if It has Proper Food— Grape=Nuts People can live in a temperature which feels from ten to twenty degrees cooler than their neighbors enjoy, by regulating the diet The plan is to avoid meat entirely for breakfast use a goodly allowance of truit, either fresh or cooked. Then fol low with a saucer containing about four heaping teaspoonfuls of Grape-Nuts, treated with a little rich cream. Add to this about two slices of crisp toast with a meager amount of butter, and one sup of well-made Postum. By this selection of food the bodily energy is preserved, while the hot, car bonaceous foods have been left out The result is a very marked difference in the temperature of the body, and to this comfortable condition is added the certainty of ease and perfect diges tion, for the food being partially pre digested is quickly assimilated by the digestive machinery. Experience and experiment In food, and its application to the human body has brought out these facts. They can be made use of and add materially to the comfort of the user.
