Peoria Hebali: The Springfield Register says that it is supporting free silver coinage at a 16 to 1 ratio not for the benefit of the silver mine owner. Very naturally, one will wonder what the Register is support ing it for. The Clinton county, Iowa, papers are petitioning the board of super visors there to submit to the tax payers a bond issue to complete the caurt houe delayed through the rascality of the contractors awarded the undertaking of constructing it. Stysoneof them, "Let the court house be finished. It is a foolish thing to stand up and scrap, or sit down and cry over spilled milk. Kvekywiikkk the business boom has been making itself felt. Mer chants in all branches of trade re port a reawakened activity. The period of doubt long since has passed awny. and the feeling is one of hope, and along with hope is an actual up ward movement which has been es pecially pronounctd during the past month. Hurrah for the new condi tion of things, if it do-' displease Mc Kinlcy! Hon. Joseph G. Cannon is out for Cullom for president. Alluding to thi the Champaign Times says: There are three reasons why lilr Cannon should support Mr. Cullom (1) because they are friends; (2) because Illinoi 'must stand by Illi nois; (8) because Cullom election to the presidency would make a sena torial vacancy which Mr. Cannon hopes to lilt. All three reasons are real good " Clintox Aje: The advance of 10 per cent at Pullman is a stunner on McKinleyism. If these advances continue all along the lino as now bids fair to be the ease, and the un employed grow beautifully less in number as is in evidence every where, there will be but little left of the McKinlcy idea when the republi cans hold tuiir national convention. How Reed and Harrison and Allison must chuckle as they see the smok ing chimneys, wages advance and the number of idle men on the rapid decrease. At the Soldiers1 home at (jnincy tho actual membership is now 1,340. During the lUcal j'cur which closed June 30 there were 13) veterans ad mitted, whoo average age is 53 yeare, and wha represent 70 counties of the state. Of the new additions 337 draw pensions of from 6 to $30 a month. There are 913 pensioners at the home. The superintendent's report shows that the home during the last iiiarter stood at the bead or all charitable institutions of the state nn tho net cost per capita, which was $21.15. Said a prominent republican to the New York Mercury: "Much scandal has arisen in tho past from the pres. ence of officeholders at state and na tional conventions. The evil has been growing, and the culmination was reached at Minneapolis in 192. Harrison was renominated by bis own olliccholders. That they did not rep resent the republican party was clearly demonstrated at tho election which followed. I believe at the next republican national convention that a rule will be adopted declaring all olliccholders ineligible to occupy seats in the convention. lbere will be no danger of tilliceholdcrs domi nating the republican convention next vear, but it will be well to es tablish a precedent for the future, It is also desirablo that the Km pi re state should put its foot down upon IhU evil thi year. If any ollicc holders arc elected to our state con vention, I shall bo in favor of kick ing them out." Doa'l Mtop II Im! He has a bad attack of colic and is making for M. F.

Bow the Painting; Was Rescue From mm Ignominious Fate, Probably Chicago's first painting with a history was an excellent portrait of ot J of her tiirest citizens a belle of 1837. Fine vriak aa it wa3, however, at one time there was imminent danger of its becoming a decorative signboard of a prominent local livery stable. Long beforo the days of the iron horso a wandering artist strayed along what is now the corner of Lako and Clark streets, and there opened a stadia Among the early patrons of hi3 brush was a dazzling creature who yearned to have her beauty perpetuated upon can vas. Slio was a leader in the swelldom of tho town, the adored object of both secret and outspoken admiration of all tho bachelors of her set. Her family had not come over in the Mayflower, but her blood was tho most cerulean in the far away down ct whence it came. Hence it was with propriety that she proposed to gratify her ambition, and ixjsed, be decked with a wonderful "amazone" and waving numberless plumes, disport ing herself with equanimity on the back of a rearing, plung'.g steed. The artist had a line subject, heed less to say he rendered it full justice. Vhea Hjo canvas was finished, the iin pressivo ensemble wa3 placed upon ex hibition iu tho artist's studio, and every body w ho was anybody dropped in and lavished bis admiration upoa it. After a timo the novelty of the display wore ou. Proplo had wen all they wanted of it, but tho fair equostrienno's portrait still hung rjx-n its creator's walls, nn- Ciu:nied, siuel, alas, unpaid for. . The landlord t.f tho embryonic Sir Joshua Reynolds grew nupleasant to him. He becamo addicted to the abominablo habit f "dropping in upon tho yonng artist and making unnecessary remarks abont "the rent" at all kinds of inop portuno moments, until at last life be came a burden to the child cf art, and iu despair ho decided to re turn to his nativo east uiul abandon all his dreams of famo in the wild prairio town of tho west. Among the inartistio and unpreten- tions citizens of tho town was a certain highly prosperous stable keeper wh j was awaro cf tho circumstances comiected with tlw unpaid for picture and the painter's imptvnniosity. Tho night pre ceding the former's proposed departure for tho city of his birth it was given ont among tho good pooplo ronndabont that the stable, keeper bad purchased the famous portrait for t-'iOO, and that henceforth it should be the attraction of his cignboard over his new livery stable. Tho rumor spread like wildfire within a few hours, and at nightfall artist and stableman had the satisfaction of re ceiving a visit from the hanghty rela tives of the picture a original. The re quired sum was gladly paid by them. Two hundred fell to" tho lot of the shrewd liveryman, tho painter received his first price, $.100, and every one was serene over the historic transaction.

GOOD FISHERMEN, ROAOMAKERS AND FIERCE FIGHTERS. 71iat Boater Who Have Met the Grirrly Hare to Say of HI Alaska Cooain Tliry Do Mot Fear Man aad Will Fight While Mortally Wounded. A traveler who recently returned from Alaska says: "The Alaskan brown boar Is a huge, shaggy animal, varying in length from 6 to 13 feet and weighing from 600 to 1,500 pounds. I found him to be an expert fisher, and daring the salmon season he frequents all tho rivers emptying into the Bering sea and the north Pacific and their -tributaries as far as the fit-h go. After the salmon run is over the animal retreats into the recesses of the lulls, whore berries and small game are plentiful. Among other things he does besides fishing and occasionally chewing up a hunter, he is a great road maker for this part of Alaska. Nor only are the banks of the streams trodden into good trails by these hnge lumbering beasts, but the swampy plains are cross ed in every direction bypaths leading to tho hills. The traveler will do well to follow them iu journeying across tho country, as they invariably lead to tho best feeding places along the stream and form the best routes to tho hilL?. " A hunter who has Fpeiit some time there recently chasing brown bears writes several cf his experiences to tho Seattle Telegraph. "My first encounter," he says, "with one of these brown bears was a startling experience for me, and I have always thought equally so for tho bear. We had been working up against a strong cur tent of the Koowak river all day, and toward nightfall pitched our tent at the base of a high bluff forming the right bank of the stream. While supper was being prepared I climbed the bluff to get a look ut tho country and was walk ing along with my gun carelessly held in my left hand. Tho top of the bluff was densely t-overed almost to tho edge with Fprnco and alders, and the under growth was so thick that it was impos sible to see more than a few feet through it. Ahead cf mo a clustercf rocks ffer ed a temporary place to sit down and enjny tho view, and I msdo for it. Just as I reached tho nearest reck a tremen dous slmsgy animal aroro apparently from under my feet, and I immediately recognised iu him tho brown bear of wb.fK.e fierceness the natives had been telling nie fur weeks. My first instinct was tosh'Krf, and I probably would have done so had lay gnu been in my right hand, but tho f:n t motion I mado the bear reared on ?::s haunches and was so formidable looking that I concluded to wait and seo what ho intended loii.fr. After a moment's hesitation, during which ho turned his head from side to side and licked his chops in a most png gestivc fashion, he dropped on all fours, and with wonderful, qniekness turned and sprang out of sight in the denso undergrowth. When I returned to camp and related my experience, Tah-tah-rok, my native gaide, nssnrcd me that tho bear must recently havo concluded a heavy meal, or otherwise ho would have attacked nie. "ionie officers from soiuo of the ves sels of tho Bering sea fleet went ashore at Herendceu bay during tho Bummer of 1891 on a deer hunt, and one of the party saw a bear about 100 yard. distant eating berries. Without thonglit of the coiiKcqnenecs. he raise j his gun and fired at tho animal. "The shot went wide cf tho mark, but at the report of tho gnn the bear started for the hunter on a dead rnn. His charjio was met with a riiowcr cf bullets from the officer's repeater; but, although bad ly wounded, tho infuriated animal did not ' hesitate an instant and rushed straight at his enemy. When within about 10 feet of the hunter, the bear rose on his haunches and prepared to close. Blofftl was ponring iu streams down his body. One bullet had shattered his urpcr jaw, but be was so full of fight that tho final outcome of the struggle would have been extremely doubtful had not another of the party arrived and ended the fight by shooting the brute through the bram. An examination of the bear's body showed that ho had been struck six times. Three of the shots were in parts of the bodyordinarilycon sidered vital end would doubtless have cau.ed death, but th vitality :f theso animals is almost incredible. Instances arecitcdof theirrnnning over 100 yards after bein? shot throngh tho heart. Last summer, while I was at Sand Point, two hunters came in, after an ab sence of over a month in tho vicinity of Portage bay, and reported having killed S3 bears. One day they killed seven. In order to show that they were not spin ning hunters yarns they brought the skins with them, and sold them at a trading poct at Sand Point. During the summer of 1S!U two prospectors were looking for coal lands near Port Moller, and about a mile from the shore they came upon an immense brown bear en gaged in catching salmon in a small stream. One of the prospectors iniraedi atelv owned fire, and evidentlv wound ed the brute badly, but be got out of sight in the thick brush. Being anxious to secure the skin the two men started to follow the wounded animal. They had not gone a dozen steps liefore the enraged and wonnded brute turned on them, and before either one could iro shot he seized one man by the leg and bit it nearlv off, and then sprang upon his companion and knocked him sense less with the blow of his terrible paw. Eaving, as he thought, finished his ene mies, the bear quietly ambled off, and was subsequently fonnd dead a few hun dred yards from the scene of battle." With Tear la Her Ejea. She was thrown on the world. "Merciful heaven!" she gasped. Considerable turf was knocked off the world where she struck it. Before anybody could reach her she had risen and was swiftly leading bet bicycle away. Town Topics. HUMAN. SUFFERING. Ytse-tealhs of It I Cwicu aad Coald Be Avoided. Go thronjr'i a crowd of people, pro ferably city poiple; examine the tired, anxious, waited faces ; remember your life and the lives cf the meu whom yoa have known intimately; recall the vio lent deaths, tho suicides cf which you have heard, ruid aik ycursclf the reason :f all thiS death, suffering aad despair. And yoa will see, however strange it Siay ap;iear. that the cans? of nine-tenths of human suffering is the present lifo of the world; that this suffering is useless; that it ccnM be avoided, and that the majority of men are martyrs to wcrldly ideas.

Frcm raorusijg till evening these thousands of c:ea. mo-t cf them hungry and in rags, iostie eats other m the mad, dispute, deceive aad hate each otbr. The same thing g;x?s on in the markets of Moscow and other cities. These men will pass their evenings ia the wine shops and .afterward will seek their holes and cor ucrs. runday is t'.:cir best day. Monday they begin again their accursed cxist ui'.e. Think of tho existence of the.e men, cf the situation which they abandon and cf that which they choose. Consider the labor to which they give themselves, aad you will see that they are martyrs. Ail have left their fields, their houses, their fathers and Lrot hers, often their wives and children. They have renounc ed everything and come to the city in order to acquire that which the world considers necessary. All of them are there, from the operative, the coachman and the seamstress to the wealthy mer chant, the oftiee holder and the wives of all of them, to say nothing of the tens of thousands of unfortunates who have lost everything and live en scraps and brandy in the j.-ee bulging houses. Go through this crowd; watch poor and rich alike; l-uk fur a man whj says that ho is satisiied and believes that he possesses what the world deems necessa ry. You will not find one in u thousand.
