Who Ilea It?' On three occasions in succession Tub Akgts has been denied the pleasure of flying its main flag from the staff on its building these days being the Fourth of July, Labor day and today. The omission has been no fault "of The akqcs, but has rather been due to the failure of peo ple who have borrowed the same to return it as they promised to do. Church, labor, social and other or ganizations have frequently bor rowed The Argus Hags. The larger one was recovered a short time ago', but the one which belongs to the main staff is still missing and its whereabouts are unknown. If the organization which has it will kindly return it, the oversight will be over looked, notwithstanding that the neglect is aggravating. Standard cinb Officers.

The burden of labor is constantly being lightened by new inventions, but nothing new has yet been dis covered to brighten the hours of labor and make life worth living like Simmons Liver Regulator does it s the king 'of liver medicines. A sluggish liver depresses one's spirits and causes languor, besides upsetting the whole system. But Simmons Liver Regulator tones np and strengthens the body. CANTIJ-LION'S MEN WIN. Milwaukee Club Receive a Bad Drubbing la Yesterday 'a Exhibition. In yesterday afternoon's exhibition game at Twin City park Joe Cantil lion's players defeated the Milwau kee aggregation 16 to 4. The visi tors were greeted by an audience about as chilly as the weather. Including the small boy probably one hundred witnessed the contest, a clever one in many respects. The Los Angeles club, managed by Can tillion, is composed of the cream of the profession, bent on spending the winter season where snowballs are a rarity. The Milwaukee club has good players, but they showed them selves somewhat lazy yesterday, while their opponents were up to (nun at every turn. Cantillion 'wields the. willow and covers the second bag in his old sweet way and Bui Kreig looks natural on first, and does his duty as of yore. These are the only 'two with last year s Kock island team who participated in yesterday's game. .Neither Andrews nor Swee ney were in evidence. Score and Players.

Lord Carmarthen, comptroller of tho qnoru's hnnprhnld at a salary of -1,000 a yeur, is the eldest sou "and heir of the Date cf Leeds and is as aVbreviated in statnro as bis faiher. Whereas tho lat ter is cscrcdiniily portly, Lord Car marthen is quite the reverse.

Finally ouo of the interrupters cried out, "We want no bloated aris tocrats here!" Tho little Marquis pa thetically turned to his hearers and ex claimed: "Uentlemeu, I must appeal to you. I rimy be im aristocrat, but do I look bloated?'' Which retort turned the laugh against the interrupter and scored one for Lord Carmarthen. Sau Fran cisco Examiner. ' The Conarlentione Elder.
