Western Union desires to rim cable . now underground on J lift avenue which was the prop erty of the dafunct Union Electric Telephone company. It is the con tention of the city commissioners - (hftt this property reverted to the City when the Union Electric went lnt bankruDtcy. and is therefore entitled to a- consideration from the 'Western Union for tha use of the cable.;" : Claimed Ownership. v hn the metter first came to the attention of City Electrician Mc Neoly, the Wettern Union claimed 4,hat the abandoned cable belonged JO them by reason of contract (en tered into with the Union Electric before It went out of existence. A tepfesentative was sent to Chicago " for.ihe purpose of locating the con tract but he failed to do so. Now the Western Union is apparently willing to effect a settlement with Ibe city for wnatever portion of the H cable that it makes use of. The company asserts mat oniy ine sec tion, between Eighteenth and Nlne ' ienhth streets is of value, and that ihc remaining block will have to be .laid with new material. The new cable will do away with many of the poles along Frst avenue be tween the streets named. . It cannot be done, for stream do not run op hllL They why try to do It in Met Why try to run your lib on bygones. :,. . I am not saying Chat we should despise memory, for memory is a precious thing. But I am saying that you cannot meet present duties by moping over past mistakes. . We have all made them. There are no perfect people. Any one who Is honpst must make the confes sion of the prodigal in the far coun try: "I have sinned." ; How the remembrance of wast ed opportunities and misspent days dogs our steps! There are people who live in that shadow. They cannot shake off the past. It troubles the present and darkens the future, filled ' with vain regrets might have been. If they could only live life over again! ' But it cannot be done. Bygones are bygones. . Too cannot run the mill at life with water that is past Quit trying to do it. Let the dead bury its dead. There, is no surer way to drive off the angel of peace than this in dulgence in melancholy retrospect. God does not require it He does not ask us to re-live the past. He does not ask ns to do the impossi ble. If His forgiveness means any thing, it means that He has wiped out the past insofar as it can reg ister a condemnation aginst us. Our sins are behind His back. .Why I should we try to get past goo to drag out sin which He has blotted from His book of remembrance? What we need to do is not to cry. over the past, but to do our best in the present See that no more water runs past the mill of life without grinding its fuU - toll of rain. .. . ' ; The past does not need y-u, but the present clamors for you. Face living issues. Grapple present duties. Claim heaven's manna for today instead of hanging over the stale pot hoarded from yesterday. -"Forgetting the things that are behind, and reaching forth unto the They are! things that are before." Thus the for what mill of God grinds out its daily grist, and the world has bread.

At yonr druggists. , The city of Mattoon, TO.,' has taken a decided stand against the public utilities commission Of Illi nois, as it exists today. Mayor Schriver is in receipt Of a copy of a resolution passed by the Mattoon council recently, in which the abolition of the utilities com mission is advocated on the grounds that its operation denies the right of the people of the cities to govern that which they maintain. The resolution in effect reads that year after year has brought an increase in the cost of the product of the. public utilities of Mattoon, and at the same time the quality of service has gone back, rather than forward in keeping with the in creased prices. It further maintains that inasmuch as the citizens of Mattoon have elected a mayor and city council to safeguard their rights under law, the power to reg ulate the utilities should be vested in that body. . , The copy was read before the city commission yesterday . afternoon but was not p'.aced on the records. c .
