Grand Hapids. Michigan, captured the first prize In the liig Elks' parade yes terday afternoon. The Toledo “Cher ry Pickers" were awarded second and the Chicago contingent third moneys. The Greenville, Mississippi, lodge was given first prize for the most unique display lu the pageant. The parade was by all odds the most beautiful and successful of Its kind ever seen in Milwaukee. Fully 5,000 Elks took part. It was made up of seven different divisions. About fifty lodges from all parts of the country took part. Half of those brought bands of music which preceded the march ers. The Grand lbipids Elks were attired in neat white and navy blue suits and large black neckties, and wore white taps, which bore the names of their city on the hat hand. They also wore wliite shoes. This delegation number ed 318 men. The "Cotton Pickers." from Green ville. Mississippi, thirty-five strong, made up as darkies, were a feature in their unique outfit. They laid a wa gon on which were several bales of cotton fresh from the fields. A fire run and contest were the fea tures to-night, and were followed at midnight by a "ghost parade.” in which many took part. The costumes were of a gruesome order, tin* skull and crossbones playing a prominent part in their make-lip. Will U*e Filipino I*oltc«. Manila. July 25.—The conference be tween Adjutant General Corbin and General Chaffee, recently held here, will probably result In radical econom ical and administrative reforms in the army of occupation. It is estimated that the total cost of maintaining the American army In the Philippines can be reduced by sixty per cent. In the course of one year. The principal change will be the reduction of the present force to between 20.000 and 30,000. The abolishment of the pres ent army districts is contemplated and three brigades with permanent head quarters at Manila. Dagupan and Iloi lo. or Cebu, will be instituted in tie ir stead. The troops will be concentrated at three points selected, abandoning all minor posts. The changes will result in an enormous saving in transporta tion of supplies and the paying of re tail barracks for the officers. The insular constabulary is now be ing officered. It will lie maintained by the insular government and is expect ed to he amply able to preserve pence and enforce tiie law. This constabu lary will, as a general rule, be armed with rifles, but its members have been given 5.000 shotguns* and 2.000 ponies, relinquished by the army. Jlei*t In Kiuiim*.

Hi tut rated In Death of Omm. Delaroy'* ■°# at Mo ldor Blear. General Delarey, the Boer command ant, who ia making another DeWet of himself In the guerrilla warfare in South Africa, Is probably the moat modern and up-to-date of the Afri kander fighters. He is the officer who engineered the clever capture the Scots Fusiliers. He Is now the main pillar of the dwindling Boer army, and unless stopped by a bullet he will probably be the last to leave the field. For eleven years he sat In the Volki raad, but he was known as the silent man. He rarely spoke except In secret council, and he was warmly opposed to the sending of the ultimatum to Great Britain. He has no love for Kruger. "No good.” he says, "can ever come to us until that old man has Passed away." He is the one Boer gen eral who refused to accept men who had taken oath of neutrality. He h&« his own private griefs as well as pub lic ones. His firstborn was killed at Modder river. The Incident was Ro manesque. The son, a boy of fifteen, was struck by a bullet while*at hi* father’s side. "Are you hit, my boy?" asked tha general. "Yes, father." They went to the ambulance. "Does it pain, my boy?" "Yes, father." "Are you going to die?" "Yes. father." Half an hour later the lad was dpad. But Delarey fights on. and at his side Is another son, younger, but as brave as the first. One British critic, writing of the war. says that all would have gone well always If there had been more Delarey and less Kruger.—Utica Globe. ENGLAND WATCHES GERMANY. Lance Boats of ths Germss Army Causs Snap'elon, At least a real use has been discov ered for the lances carried by the European cavalry. In America we don'l attach much Importance to lances, but in England In the early stages of the war In the Transvaal much was heard of Boers being "spitted” on English' lances. In the German army, however, a scheme has been devised by which the lances of the cavalry form a frame work for boats. This is such an ad vanced step that the English are watching clcsely to see what success attends it. Twelve to sixteen lances and a few cross sticks form the frame work for these lance boats, und be sides the dars, which are made of a lance and a canvas blade, the only oth er essential part of the boat Is the wat erproof covering. It takes only .five minutes for tho troopers to tie the frame work together and two minutes more to fasten on the cover. Then the boat is ready for launching. Sometimes to insure stability the two boats are fastened together like a catamaran. When these boats are packed up one horse can easily carry two of them. It is said that with the old system it required 2,000 men and 3,500 horses merely to look after the transport of the boats If every Squadron in the Eng lish army were supplied with two boatß. however, only 500 horses are needed, and In the item of fodder alone there is a saving of $137,500 a year.— New York Press. % ~ H A (li-oat Sight at . Buffalo. Visitors to the Buffalfe exposition have discovered that the lighting-up process in the evening is one of the greatest sights. The main tower. In height, is only nine feet short of 40G feet, and is, of course, th* center of the spectacle. At 8 o’clock the people gather at points of vantage to wltnes* the progressive illumination. First the bulbs along the lakes and bridges be gin to glow. A faint rose fire appears on the tower, slowly brightening on every dome, pinnacle, window arch and cornice. A correspondent says there is no simile for the tower when In full brilliancy, "because the world never saw before anything so trans eendently bright and yet so undaz lingly soft. It looks not like a lighted tower, but a tower of light.” The tall tower is the landmark of the exposi tion.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Dutch Halfpenny Disappearing. The dearth of halfpenny pieces, or pieces value 2V4 cents In Holland, has caused a new class of merchants to spring into existence—namely, the halfpenny merchant. The scarcity of the coin In question has been caused by the widespread employment of au tomatic gas meter. Into which the Dutch housewife puts her halfpence. In the Netherlands the 2%-cent piece, or halfpenny. Is the largest copper coin made, hence it is being used for gas meters and automatic machines generally. The Dutch mint does noth ing to ease the scarcity, with the re sult that slowly but surely the half penny Is disappearing from use among the general public. The dealers in these coins sell them at the rate of one penny premium for every twenty coins, or 10 per cent profit. An Old Bett-Klng»» One of the oldest bell-ringers in England Is J. R. Haworth of St. Paul's, London. Mr. Haworth has Just celebrated his eightieth birthday. He was an expert in the art on the ac cession of Queen Victoria, 'and helped to peal the bells of Westminster Ab bey on that occasion. On each re curring June 20. without a break dur ing the queen’s reign, he pealed those bells. He was one of the team who rang the bells of St. Paul's not only at the Jubilee of 1887 but on the oc casion of her late majesty’s visit to the cathedral on the diamond Jubilee day.

In the ten years from 1890 to 1900 the population of the United States in creased from 62.622.260 to 76.304.799 a gain of not quite 21 per cent. Ia the ten years from 1891 to 1901 the Christian Endeavor societies, whose annual convention has just ended, In creased their membership from one million to four million—a gain of 300 per cent. Not quite all of this is ia America, for the Christian Endeavor societies have been planted in all lands, but it needs only a simple mathemati cal calculation to show that if thes<* relative rates of increase keep up it will be but a matter of twenty-five years or so until all the inhabitants of the United States become Endeavorers, and in less than fifty years the socie ties will include the entire population of the globe. But without waiting for that consummation we may congratu late ourselves upon the vigor of an or ganization whose irole purpose Is to work for good. That four million young people can be found to act with a single one of the many bodies formed to elevate the world is a pretty fair sV off to the selfish commercialism that Is doing so much to drag mankind down. Has 123 Decctndants. The Dowager of Abercorn who cele brated her ninetieth birthday quite recently, has more living descendants than even Queen Victoria had. Her children, grandchildren, great-grand children,. and great-great-grandchil dren number 128. among them being four dukes and heirs to dukedoms. The Dowager Duchess Is a daughter of the sixth duke of Bedford, and was mar ried to the Duke of Abercorn In 1829. On her eighty-second birthday, In 1894, there was a family reunion, at which 101 of her descendants passed before the venerable Dowager, led by her eldest daughter, the Dowager Duchess of Lichfield, with her thirteen children and thirteen grandchildren, who were followed by the thirteen children and fifteen grandchildren of the Countess of Durham. The children of the Dow nger Duchess who are still living are the present Duke of Abercorn, Coun tess Winterton. Lord Claud Hamilton, Lord George Hamilton, the Marchion ess of Blandford, the Marchioness of Lansdowne, and Lord Ernest Hamil ton. A PlucKy Woman. The Countess of Essex, who was Miss Adele Grant of New York before her marriage to the head of the ancient English family, is giving London an exhibition of American pluck. When it became known that she and her hus band both had exhausted their for tunes. much sympathy was extended, but instead of throwing up her hands the countess devised away of earning both hers and her husband's living. Her plan is to rent apartments she has had furnished in her own taste, and the high rents she receives give her a good income. It is said the title of Countess of Essex always has been born by a beautiful woman, and the present American owner of tho title particu larly is greatly admired for her beauty and charming manner. She was the Duchrjj y Abcrcum belle of New York and Newport before her marriage to the Earl of Essex, and once was engaged to mary Earl Cairns. She has a daughter of 5, who promises to be as beautiful as her mother, and a stepson of 14. “BooKtoatler's Vwhw. After a 2.000-roile bicycle trip through Southern Europe, John W. Bookwalter, the eminent American economist and author, is convinced that there is trouble for the world in the higher prices for grain. He Is also convinced after closely studying the peasantry of Europe that a crisis Is imminent between the urban and rural populations of the United States. After, traversing Italy from end to end. and after crossing the Apennines, Mr. Book waiter predicts a great struggle between the agricultural districts and the cltlee, particularly in the United States. J. A. Fillmore, who has resigned the position of manager of the Pacific sys tem of the Southern Pacific railway after almost a lifetime of merltorloui service, will be paid SI,OOO a month by the company till the end of : the year, and a pension of SSOO a month there after as toUg as he lives. Th® ships of the world, excluding navies, are worth $294,600,100, of which Europe's share is $227,0000001 VACCINATION FOR RATTLESNAKE BITE Some Relentlflc experiments that are now belug made regarding the possibil ity of Itnmunlng animals and human beings from the toxic effects of snake bites, particularly that of the Ameri can rattlesnake, are of the greatest In terest to those states and sections where such dangers prevail. This Is true In Colorado In some sections. The bites of rattlesnakes not only deci mate the herds of cattle and horses but are a standing menace to life. Some of the experiments are being made by the government and sotne by private In dividuals. A report on some of the ex periments will be made at the comiug convention of the American Association for the Advancement of Science In this city and the question will be freely dis cussed. ns the topic Is one that admits of a number of views. In general It is however admitted that horses can be immuned from the bite and |k>lrou of n rattlesnake and thus is deduct'd the theory that a mnn can likewise. As yet no one has volunteered to be the horrl nle example, but scientists are patieut and long enduring. One great ditltculty has stood In the way of experiments of luununlng horse* from the venom of the rattle snake. When the famous Calmette , made his experiments on venomous serpents the American rattlesnake was not on his list. Had he used one of these snakes he would have had a se rious check from the start, lii Inject ing the venom of a rattlesnake Into the veins of a horse It was found that the greatest degree of local irritation fol lowed. which counteracted any good that the experiment would disclose. The experimenters then tried heating the venom. At 70 degrees Calmettl found that all of the irritating effect of the venom of a cobra was lost. The same heating by the American experi menters of the venom of n rattlesnake disclosed the fact that it then lost ail Its toxic pro)>erties. It was found nec essary to inject the dried venom in Its normally active condition. The Injec tions were given subcutaneously uml were followed by enormous edemata, neeroses and sloughs, so that after de termining that no immunity to the local action developed this method was abandoned and the Intrnvenous used. It has been shown that after this method Ihe Interior of the vessels showed no signs of Injury, because the well-diluted venom met with greater dilution In the circulating blood. No local or other Irritative distenhances followed the Intravenous injection, but the nervous impression was profound; the horse often fell and remained un conscious for several minutes. Two of the three horses died before nntlvcnlne developed from the damage to the tis sues as a result of the Irritation pro duced by the subcutaneous Injection. Antivenine was obtained from the third animal. It met death, however, from an accidental entrance of the venom Injection Into tin* Jugular vein. The antivenine obtained was Injected Into a rabbit, two centimeters, and it protected the animal against a full dose of the rattlesnake venom. From this Is deduced the theory that people can be immuned from simkc-hltc poi son. but the practical method of ob taining the antivenine with a surety, and the absence of practical experi ments on a human being leaves the matter in the ruuks of theory. 1 A Baloon Ascensionist A balloon aacenslonlst was recently killed while making one of his daring trips.

The State Department has received the amount of the American indemnity for tin* claims against Turkey, through tin? American legation ut Con stantinople. The money was paid by the Turkish government to Mr. Leishmnn, our min ister at Constantinople, was by him placed in tlie Ottoman Imperial bank, and drafts remitted for the amount. These drafts have just reached Wash ington. As is always the case, the claims In tin* aggregate considerably exceed the amount of Indemnity actu ally paid, but our government has ex pressed Itself satisfied with the pay ment. It assumes full rcs|>onsihility for the distribution, the Turkish gov eminent paying down u lump sum of $11.1,000 niul leaving it to the State De partment to distribute if among the claimants, at its discretion, and after Its own fashion. It is stated that ns soon as tlie department officials can prepare the list it will coinuiuuicnte directly with the claimants. These cinims are principally linsod on losses suffered by the American missionary and educational institu tions In Turkey, notably those at Ilar fioot and Mnrnsh. but there are a num -Ist of individual claims, such, for in stance. ns that of Hie family of tDo un fortunate Cyclist Lenx. the Pittsburg man who was killed by Turkish sol diers while attempting to go around tlie glolie on his wheel. 'Hie State Department officials feel tlie greatest satisfaction nt the settle ment of these claims. Secretary Hay had been told by diplomats skilled in tlie ways of Oriental diplomacy nn<l ex perienced in the political conditions of southern Europe, that he never would lx» able to collect them. Among other difficulties the State Department had to contend with was the Jealousy of the great European powers, most of whom had claims ngninst Turkey vastly larger In amount thfln ours, and whose total was beyond the ability of the Turkish government to meet. For more than a decade the Ameri can claims have lieen pending. Minis ter Terrell initiated them; Dr. Angell went over to collect them, expecting to lx* so engaged only n short time, but he returned unsuccessful, after several years In Constantinople. Then Minis ter Strauss took them up. and when he resigned lie passed them along to young Mr. Orlseom. The latter only recently committed Ills heavy charge to Mr. Lelshmnn, and while to the lat ter belongs the credit of actually col lecting the money, it Is said nt the State Department that every one of the officers named has contributed val uable services toward the final settle ment. Meanwhile the State Department nat urally (eels gratified, not only over the receipt of the money, but for the larger reason that the Turkish govern ment lias, in making the payment, given n most signal manifestation of the regard it entertains for the United States, and thus has re-established ef fectually the very best relations be tween the two countries. New Zealand Buying Back Land. Within six years the New’ Zealand government has liought back of the original settlers 324.107 acres of land used for sheep runs, and 1.030 families have found homes on them. A JUDGE’S WIFE She Suffered for Years and Felt Her Case Was Hope less—Cured by Pe-ru-na. Mrs. Judge McAllister writes from 1217 West 33rd at, Minneapolis, Minn., aa follows: "I suffered for years with a pain in tha small of my back and right side. It Interfered often with my domestic and social dutlea and l never supposed tbmt 1 would be cured, as the doctor’s medicine did not seem to help me any. “Fortunately a member of our Order advised me to try Peruna and gave It such high praise that I decided to try It. Although I started In with little faith, I felt so much better in n week that I felt encouraged. *T took It faithfully for seven weeks nnd am happy Indeed to be able to say that 1 am entirely cured. Words fail to expreaa my gratitude. Perfect bealth once more Is the best thing I could wish for, and thanks to Peruna enjoy that now.”—Minnie E. McAllister. The great popularity of Peruna as a catarrh remedy has tempted many people to Imitate Peruna. A great many so-called catarrh remedies and catarrhal tonlca are to be found In many drug stores. These remedies can be procured by the druggist much cheaper than Peruna. Peruna can only be obtained at a uniform price, and no druggist can get It a cent cheaper. Thus it Is that druggists are tempted to substitute the cheap imitations of Peruna for Peruna.

It Is only about two years since the little fellow made his first appearance In this country In his present capacity, and ho might be said to have taken the hearts of p3t lovers by storm. Now his popularity has become so great that the men who make a business of catering to the whims of the people who like pets say that the demand for the pocket mon key Is five times as great as the sup ply. They predict a bright future for the new favorite Just ns soon as the people down In Brasil can be made to understand what a good commercial article they have and thus be Induced to make a regular business of captur ing these monkeys and shipping them up here. The pocket monkey dwells so far In the interior of Brazil as to be almost out of the reach of traders. He Is, perhaps, the smallest member of the monkey family known, being about five inches long, but with a tail that Is sometimes three times as long as his body. He belongs to the marmot fam ily of monkeys, and is extremely neat In person and cleanly of habit. If It wasn’t for those characteristics, he would not he holding the placo he does , In the hearts of those who have in- I vested In him. Modernized Palestine. In spite or all our philosophy the Invasion of the birthplace of Chris tianity by modern devices and modes of life grates harshly on sensitive minds. Names hallowed by religious associations seem out of place on rail way timetables or subscription lists of long-distance telephones. Of course, all this Is Illogical, for we need not expect any part of the world to remain in infancy, still prim itive habits and modes of life are so naturally blended with the Biblical narrative that we cannot entirely sup press a wish for their perpetuation. But modern Innovations are strangers to sympathy. The railway from Joppa to Jerusalem, at first an experiment. Is now run on strictly business prin ciples, and branches are under con struction to famillnr places up and down the Jordan. Trolley Ikies aro projected to connect Jerusalem with Bethlehem, Bethany, the of Gal ilee, Samaria. Jericho, Nazareth and other places, while In the city Itself there are electric lights, telephones and other modern conveniences. In stead of the workman longing his shadow, he now consults a cheap Am erican watch for quitting time, and aill other modern supplies are han dled by commission houses through out Palestine and Syria.
