The total number of books used in the public schools of Chicago is ap proximately 8M7.700. Commasdeu-ik-ciiikk Lawler and staff, of the G. A. R., have returned to Kockford. 111., from their trip to Pacific coast departments. Don't put off that shave until to morrow. If you do, you are liable to carry a supply of whiskers over Sunday that you had not bargained for. Members of the Massachusetts Bi cycle club have arranged a delight ful trip through eastern Canada, to be made on their wheels, between August 10 and '.'4. Chicago book publishers arc almost shut out of competition with the American Book company in fur nishing text books to the board of education. This is the cause of the war on the trust. We must repeat it once more," says the New York Sun. "that the bicycle, man or woman, who doubles up the body while riding, deforms tbe human shape, presents a most ungrateful appearance, invites spinal disease and loses a great deal of the benefit that would otherwise accrue from the exercise. We don't know, why the doubling up habit is so widely prevalent, or why men make an exhibition of it more fre quently than women. It is not nec essary. Manv a rider looks as though he were a hunchback on wheels." Tom L. Joiissox. the tariff reform democrat from Ohio, and manufac turer of street car rails, is possessed of candor to a remarkable degree When being asked in court what his business was, he replied that he was by profession a monopolist, and although threatened with a tine for contempt of court, stuck to the as sertion, which was literally true Mr. Johnson manufactures a peculiar kind of rail for street car linos and enjoys an exclusive monopoly of tbe business. It is used mainly bv the companies controlling the franchises of tbe tri-cities. It has been announced in Indian' npolis by personal friends of Benja min Harrison that when the proper time comes be will deline bis position ou tbe currency question. One of them who bad a great deal to do with bringing about Mr. Harrison s two nominations for president said "There is no reason why he should talk on this subject at this time. By and by be will set forth his views on tho currency question briefly, and what he savs will become tbe plat form of the republican party next year. I should not be surprised if tbe party bad to wait until next spring before it hears from Mr. Har rison." The ex-president is evident ly watching tbe cat. Si'Eakinu ot Secretary Gresbam's death. Chauncey M. Depew savs of overwork: "1 have learned from observation that three things surely happen to a man who works steadily without relaxation. In the first place, he becomes nervous, irritable. and hard to get along with. In the second place, the grade of the work falls off, and he is liable to err in his judgment. In the third place, he dies suddenly. It is an uncontro verlible law of nature." And in the fourth place, the Springfield Register add, "the man who goes through life with his nose to tbe grindstone, male ing work an end instead of a means misses about -all there is in life the happiness that comes with well- ordered Itisure." Docs the Register speak from practice or theory? A IG-foot alligator crawled out the St. Johns river at the foot Main street. Jacksonville, Fla , one day last week, and leisurely waddled up the street toward the centre ot the city. Main street is one of the principal streets of Jacksonville, and the appearance of the alligator cre ated a good deal of consternation among the hundreds of people there. Every man with a pistol started shooting at the reptile, but the bul lets didn't worry it a little bit. Af ter promenading four blocks, and squelching with its tail a too famil iar newsboy, it received a wound from a rifle which caused it to slow np a little. Then it started np a leaning telegraph pole, thus expos ing its vulnerable parts, and was soon shot to death. Nine big alliga tors have been killed recently at the foot of Main street, but this is the first that hat ventured up town. New Yokk Merci bt: Gov. Brown, of Maryland, has finally been aroused to a fighting point. Some time ago he announced that be would not be a candidate (or renomination. He was apparently sincere in making this statement. Brown was originally nominated through Senator Gorman's nflaence. His course as governor. however, soon brought him into a position of antagonism with the Maryland senator. Gov. lirown is not naturally a tighter. He is a rich man, a gentleman farmer, fond of books, and is more of a stndent than a politician. Some of Mr. Gorman's friends have been indiscreet in at tacking: Gov. Brown. The result is that the governor has taken off his coat and is working like a beaver to secure the renomination. In the preliminary skirmish he has made a remarkably strong showing, and bis friends are even confident that he will be successful. The New Mllltla I'nl forms. Adj. Gen. Orendoru. of the state militia, has issued the following or der with reference to the newly adopted uniforms: "The new undress coat and forage cap for officers recently adopted by tbe united Mates government is hereby adopted for the use of the Illinois National Guard, modified as follows: The insignia for undress coats will be: For all officers the letters I. N. G., Gothic design, of suitable height, embroidered in gold or made of gold or gilt metal, fas tened to each side of tbe collar one inch from its edge and midway its height. For arl officers of the staff corpsand departments: Their distinc tive insignia without wreath, one ncli high, embroidered in gold or made of gold or gilt metal, fastened to each side of the collar about live- eights inch from the letters I. N. G. tor all otlicers of the line: The re cent forage cap ornament, one inch high, embroidered in gold or made of gold or gilt metal, fastened to each side of the collar about live-eighths nch from the letters I. X. G. State buttons on cap. This order to take effect Jan. 1, 189G, but officers or dering new undress costs or caps prior to this will be permitted to wear the new pattern." Flaw Thrust Upon iler. Mrs. Catherine O'Leary, who died Wednesday- afternoon in Chicago, must be classed with those more or less fortunate per.-on s who have had their greatness thrust upon thorn. It is not at all certain that Mrs. O'Lcarv was milking the cow that kicked over the lamp that tct fire to Chicago; it is not even proved that Mrs. O l.earv s cow kicked over a lamp at all. Both allegations hate been persistently denied by the O'Leary family, and by none nioie persistently than by. the old lady herself. But the story was too good to stop. Mrs. O'Leary and her cow pleased the imagination of t he world. They spread to heroic dimensions in tho wild blaze of that ever memor- ahla flntnlmf Yiirrlit hapgma tlil modern symbol of destructive fate. It cannot be said that Mrs. O'Leary enjoyed the eminence. She had no desire to constitute a new constella tion she and her cow and the milk ing stool. She was content with a quiet life poor thing and the no toriety imposed upon her name em bittered her remaining years and sent her to the grave protesting against the world-encircling fable. She protested in vain. She cannot lude fame, savs the Post. History will embalm her memory and em bellish her exploit probably not more fictitious than many a deed perpetrated by the "satire on hu manity. Marvelous ftesnlts. a letter written by Rev. J. From Gunderman, of Dimondale.

Slattvr in Kate Field's Washington. BUYING SOCIAL POLISH. An English Couple Who Instruct la tha Art of Being Fine. A new profession for "gentlefolk" has liecu discovered iu London by two impecunious members of the class. They have discovered that there is a livelihood to bo obtaiued by "polishing off" the uouveaux riches and others whoso man ners "have not that repose which stamps the caste of Vere do Vcre. " They are a well born, well bred married couple who aro still sufficiently young to be adaptable. They have been used to the ways of the leisure class, and they are clever enongh to teach them. Anything from the cure of the cockney accent to the proper way to entertain a duke is taught for a "consideration. " The wife describes her share of the work thus: "I generally," she says, "undertake to engage the services of all specialists, such as superior maids, who know what is what and can give judi cious and useful hints to their mistress ; also manicurists, teachers of deportment and sometimes teachers of elocution. I have tared one very bad case of mere outward vulgarity iu three weeks for 10 guineas, aud I huve corrected a cockney acccut iu three mornings for 3 guineas, while, ou the other hand, a certain city man, who never aspired to anything better than heavy British dinners, Fri day.; to Mondays at Brighton, and Man sion House balls until he married the daughter of a west end restaurant man ager she knew nothing of life beyond her own narrow sphere gave ns carte blanche to make 'fine folks' of them. "Not much could be done for hiin be yond keeping him quiet, but sbe lent herself to our prices. Now they have a very pretty place in Hampshire and en tertain some rather nice people in tho summer. We ourselves received 100 guineas for our advice, but the husband must have spent over 25,000 in adopt- iug our hints ns to uiodo of living, and ho tells us that what he has got for it is worth double as much." Philadelphia Press. Maj and Matrimony. The pagans had a myth that "only bad women niaiTy in May. " They had another, that if the marriage did take place the couple would live most unhap pily, and children born of the marriage if it was not hopelessly rendered bar ren by thus shipping the fates in the face would be deformed or imbecile. With prizes like that in prospect, it is not much wonder that the ignorant and superstitions taboo May marriages, bnt there is no excuse yet for this idiosyn crasy of thinking people at least, no sensible one. Ovid was a firm believer in the su perstition and said that no widow or yonug girl would ninrry in May unless she wished to invito the displeasure of the gods, and that the imprudent wdm on who braved their wrath would fill an early grave. Ovid pinned his faith to rosy June, the birth month of June, and when he got ready to launch his daugh ter on tho matrimonial sea he studied the stars and all the superstitions to make sure that he wonld not run upon Scylla in steering off Charybdis. Resolved to match tho pirl, he tried to find What days nnprosperoua were, what moons were kind. After Juno's sarrrd idea his fancy strayed Good to tho man and happy to tho maid. Better One Way. In North Carolina lately a case was tried iu which, the defendant's charac ter having been impeached, it was sought to bolster it up by showing he had reformed and joined the church. The wituess, who belonged to the same church, insisted that as the defendant was now a Christian man of course his character was better. Counsel asked him, "Doesn't be drink just as much as he ever did?" The witness, who was colored aud evidently embarrassed by tho inquiry, slowly raised his eyes and said with much deliberation, "I think ho do, but he carries it more better." San Francisco Argonaut. Calomel. Calomel was discovered by Crollins in the seventeenth century, and the first directions for its preparation were given by Begnin in 1G08. Its name is derived from two Greek words, signifying "a beautiful black," because in its prepara tion a black powder is the first step in the manufacture, being produced by rub bing mercury together with corrosive sublimate. Tho Illinois river was so termed from the Illini, a tribe of Ind.ans on its banks. Another derivation is suggested in Isle a ax Noix, island of Nuts. Sev eral derivations more or less fanciful are suggested by tho etymologists and geographers. The frequency of storms in Nebraska is due to the fact that not only do many originate there, but the storms of Da kota move southeast, and those of Kan sas and Texas northeast, generally paus ing through Nebraska on their easterly course. "P- ta mm stubborn things is an aphorism first enumerated by La Sage in "Gil Bias." It has since become proverbial SMALL BOY AND BIG VOICE. They Create a Commotion on -L." Train. a Chicago The boy and his voice were net mates. That was evident the moment tho former attempted to use the latter. The one was not quite a "5 foot boy," while the other would easily pass as a "7 foot voice." They both got on an Alley L train at Congress street, end the boy undertook to say something about having 5 o'clock papers to sell, whereupqn tbe windows rattled and the car began to rock. Tho old man who hod jumped go high that his head nearly struck the roof looked at tho boy re proachfully for a moment and then at tempted to be humorous. ""A little louder, please," he said. "Huh?" returned tho boy inquiringly. "Speak a little louder. Have yon lost yoar voice?" Tho other passengers laughed, and the boy seemed somewhat discomfited. "Paper?" he asked, going close to the man. "No," replied tho man, gratified ot the success of his little joke. "I was merely wondering why you didn't speak out instead of whispering." Tho Boy was close to the man's ear by this time, and ho let out a cry of "Evening papers I" that fairly jarred the engineer. He got to the door first, and the book that the old man threw after him mere ly raised a bump on the rfdo of the con ductor's head. Chicago Times-Herald.
