Porterfleld. manager of -'o-nlgn advertising. This little story from life Is going the rounds of the newspapers: A pretty, dainty little girl at once of the summer resorts has been not ably neglected by the men. The reason for it is that many of the young men who frequent the resort are dry goods clerks and suit salesmen who can tell at a glance what a gown Is worth. The dress worn by this hand some girl—her best—is a "dotted Swiss," costing, perhaps, at a bargain sale. It cents a yard. .And worst of all, as revealed to the eyes of the expert male appraisers, the dress was evidently made by herself The girl looks very sweet in her simple gown, but— Tou see. these fellows are looking for the daughters of rich men And their exjierienced eyes tell them this girl works for a living and must use economy to get her vacation. Well. Tou need not pity the girl l>oeausc she is a wall dower. She has doubt less sized up the rlerks and salesmen while they have been invoicing her clothes. The girl who has the sens <to suit her wardrobe to"her purse cares Very little for the fortune hunters who ignore her. She knows there are others. The average man who does not deal In the commodities knows very little about clothes. In a general way lie knows whether a girl looks pretty when She is dressed and that is all. More than that. Every real man who is looking for a wife will have a high opinion of the dainty maiden who Is able to get herself up attractively on v very little money. So don't cry, little girl. If you can't afford expensive gowns. Men—real men—don't want to marry clothes. The Canadian Way The way to "bust a trust"—in Canada—ls to bust It. The Canadian government is going after the American tobacco trust In a way that promises accomplishment. The tobacco trust proceeds on the bold theory that the way to establish • monopoly and make money is to kill competition. It has been quite suc cessful in this country where we are all in favor of suppressing the "bad trusts'' and none of us know how to do it. In Canada it is different. In order to do business there ttie trust Is compelled to pay a license. This license is a sort of protective tariff. It is levied to protect the home tobacco industry. As a matter of fart it does no such thing. It simply In creases the price of tobacco to the consumer. The trust leaps lightly over the license wall. Now the Canadians propose to revoke Hie license and send the trust, hag Snd baggage, out of the country The American company is doing business there on sufferance and has no legal lights that may not be revoked. The proposed method would be effective. It would be the end of all Controversy. Unfortunately we have no such way of doing justice in a lump.

QUAINT UNCLE JERRY HAS PASSED AWAY CELIBSATII9 WsUTB MOUSff OSASAOTXB WHO SAP BSXBT ••orricxAx dustxs," sorer* OBAMT'B TXXX. WASHINGTON, Aug. 19.—'I'ncle Jerry" Smith, the "official duster" of the White House, is dead. Appointed by- President Grant when the soldier president first came into the White House, I'ncle Jerry had been con stantly on duty until a few months ago. His age, 75 years, then began to tell, and from that time until his death, last week, the "offlcialiduster'' had been resting. § Before leaving for Oyster fogy the president, accompanied by Gejrge B. Cortelyou, chairman of the Jjrpubll can national committee, vlsltea Uncle Jerry at his home. The doctors say that the effect of the president's visit certainly prolonged the old mafi'p life. I'ncle Jerry had a persopar ac quaintance with every public' man of the country, and was a favorue with all. He was one of the sigh tat of the White House to the thousandß i t>f vis itors. His quaint manner antfTits !ex treme politeness made hlmjE mpny friends. The "official duster" was above the average in height. Arrayed in a huge white apron and wltruhls smiling face set off by a gray skull cap, he always attracted attention. Just before he retired Uncle Jerry became famous by hoisting the flag on the White House, with the union down, a signal of distress. His eye sight had failed and he did not re alize his mistake. He was thereafter relieved from the duty of hoisting the flag and a regular army man was given the detail. Resides acting as flag raiser. Uncle Jerry dusted the stairways and the lobby of the executive mansion. No successor will be appointed and with Uncle Jerry the position of "official duster" expires. SPANISH WAR HERO A BRIDEGROOM MARRIAGE ZH SAH FRANCISCO OF THE SOLD FEB WHO "CAR RIED THE MESSAGE TO GAR CIA." ' SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19.—Cap- tain Andrew S. Rowan, "the man wlio carried the message to Garcia," is going to be married. The lady who has captured the captain's heart Is Mrs. Josephine de (Jreanger of this city. She Is well known in social circles here and a prominent club woman. Captain Rowan became famous tho world over when he performed the feat which caused his name to be enumerated among the heroes of the Spanish war. When the war broke out It became necessary for President McKinlcy to secure the co-operation of Garcia, the leader of the insurgents, who was then bidden in mountain fastnesses of Cuba. How to get the news to Garcia puzzled the president until someone suggested Rowan as the one parson who could accomplish the feat. So Rowan was sent for and given his orders. Strapping the oilskin packet con taining the letter over his heart, the lieutenant set out on his journey. In four days he landed In an open boat on Cuban soil, and then plunged Into the almost impenetrable jungle. It took him three weeks to pierce the country, surrounded as he was by foes on every side. At the end of that time he emerged from the jungle and found Garcia and delivered the letter in safety. ANIMALS DRIVEN CRAZY A. Hartshord, arriving from a trip over the mountains, tells of the mag nitieent picture the forest fires pre sent In the evening. The Northern Pacific passes through the burning ilistriet and the sight is wonderful. The hot air and smoke wafted over the valleys is a menace to humanity* and to all living things. He says that, wild animals, dying of thirst and routed out by the flames, are terrorizing townspeople in the moun tain district by midnight visits and by their yells. Children are afraid to be out after dark. Some of the stories told about wild beasts in his section rival those of Kipling's Jungle stories. Cougars stalk about at night devouring chickens and drink water storeil in barrels for fire emergencies. Every man goes about armed to the teeth and no arrests have been made for carrying concealed weapons.
