Lillian IU'mskll has a pair of red bloomers so loud that the people of Great Neck, Long Island, through the head alderman, requested her not to appear in them on the streets. Miss Kussell heeded the request, and is now driven each morning to a place in the woods, far, far from Great Neck, and there she dons the Haming red and rides unobserved of man. Mit. O rtis, in his letters from Japan to the Chicago Record lays much stress upon the fact that the manufacturers of this country have neglected the trade of Japan and missed golden opportunities. There has been a lack of commercial daring on the part of the American trader. This country buys from Japan four times as much as it sells to it, while Great Britain sells to that country four times as much as it buys from it. When American firms establish branches and agents in Japanese cities and become acquainted with the people Inhere will be a change. Tbo Illinois Iilsffrsro. The defiant attitude of the corrupt legislature of Illinois in refusing to permit an investigation of the charges of bribery ani boodle, and adjourning with the stigma upon its name of having betrayed the people's sacred trust, is the sensation of the hour throughout the country, and the shame that has been brought upon the fair state of Illinois is felt by every honest and loyal citizen within its borders, regardless of po litical preferment. It is undoubted ly the most outrageous, unblushing and notorious piece of rascality ever committed in any s'ate. Here is the resolution which Col. Merriam tried to have passed by the lower house, but was unable to do so: Whereas, His excellency, the gov. ernor, John P. Altgeld, the Chicago Times-Herald, the Chicago Evening Post, the Peoria Journal and the pub lic press of both political parties generally throughout the state have repeatedly and openly made charges that state officers, the members of the present general assembly in gen eral, and in some cases individual members thereof, had been guilty of dishonesty and boodling and at tempted bribery or blackmail, there fore be it Kesolved. That the governor, John P. Altgeld, the editors of the Chicago Times-Herald, Evening Post, Peoria Journal and all others be re quested to appear without delay be fore the bar of this house and pre sent any and all evidence of corrup tion on the part of any state officer or any member of the legislature, if any such evidence they have. And the lower branch of the legis lature, with a republican majority, refnsed to pass it. What a record, indeed! Literary Notes. The North American Review for Augnst contains an article on "Leo XIII and the Social Question1 by the Rev. J. A. Zahm, professor of physics at the University of Notre bame, Indiana. A unique interest attaches itself to this particular con tribution, it having formed the sub ject of a conversation between his Holiness and Fr. Zahm, the. Pope sending through the Review a mes sage to the people of the United States. - Home and Country, New York, for August, is rich in illustrations. Not withstanding that with this number the management of this popular monthly commemorates its entry on the 11th year of publication by a re duction in price to $1 a year, this move has been made without cheap ening the magazine in any sease. Indeed, if anything, it has been im proved. The table of contents is an interesting study," the subjects dis cussed being timely and attractive as well as diversified enough to meet the most exacting popular demand for light literature. Home and Country is indeed a magazine for every-tlay people. "Hawthorne as an Interpreter of New England" is the subjeet of an article of unusual keenness and inter est by Miss Katharine Millard in the August number of the New England Magazine. Hawthorne's subjects were in very great measure New England subjects. Salem and Con cord and Boston were constantly the scenes of his stories, and he was a great dclver into colonial and revo lutionary history. It is common to think and talk of him as an interpre ter of New England history and life. Miss Iiillard's contention is that he was not this in any true sense at all, and that he did not pretend to be, but simply made the New England ground bis starting point for ro mancing and for general study of human life and character. Her points are exceedingly well made, and it is probable that Hawthorne himself would have warmly sympa thized with all that she says. " The supreme significance of the fact that the United States has be come the foremost iron producing country of the world, the necessity for an 'output of 11,000,000 tons of iroa during the coming 12 months, as against 7,000,000 tons in 189:5. and 6.600.000 tons in 1S94. and the strong probability that we shall have to build 100,000 mile of railroads during the next 15 or 20 years to complete the systems now in opera tion these are the central features of an important leading artiele by Edward Atkinson in the Engineering Magazine for Augnst. Aside from Mr. Atkinson's high standing as an economist and statistician, double in terest attaches to his present predic tions when it is recalled that in 1880 he made a similar forecast, which has been fulfilled with astrt ishing accuracy. There are namer ous other reading articles in the same number. Not since t'The Anglomaniacs"has there been so clever a society satire as Henry Fuller's "Pilgrim" Sons," which is" published in the August Cosmopolitan. The problems in volved in woman's use of the bicycle are so startling and so numerous," un der the rapid evolution of this art, that one welcomes a careful discus sion of the subject by so trained a mind and so clever a writer as Mrs. Reginald de Koven. The Cosmopoli tan illustrates Mrs. de Koven's arti cle with a series of poses by profes sional models. A new sport, more thrilling than any known to Ninirod, more dangerous than was ever ex perienced by even a Buffalo Bill, is exploited in the same issue in a arti cle on "Photographing Big Gam in the Rocky Mountains." before shoot ing. Thu idea that 10 cents for the Cosmopolitan means inferiority from a literary point of view is dispelled by te appearance in this number of such writers as Sir Lewis Morris, Sir Edwin Arnold, Edgar Kawcett, Tabb. W. Clark Russell. Lang. Sar cey, Zangwill. Agnes Rcpp'ier, etc. Nor can we entertain the idea of in feriority in illustration with such names as Hamilton Gibsen. Denman, Van Schaick, Lix, Sandham, etc., figuring as the chief artists of a sin gle month's issne. A Fragrant Hresta end Pearly Teefi are easily attained, and those who fail to avail themselves of the means should not complain when accused of gross neglect. Sozodont will speedily eradicate the cause of a foul breath, beautifying and preserving the teeth to the oldest age. Rhaamatlaaa Cund la at Day.
