Thb Chicago Times, in a leading edi
torial on the refusal of en. Pavey to
tarn over to bis successor the cash books
of the insurance department of the audi
tor's office during his term says:
If he had nothing to conceal he might
properly have those books in the custody
of the auditor and as public records the
would be accessible to him at anv time
if in the future he desired sreciflc infor
mation. Upon first bldBh the assmmp
tion Is imperative that he bad something
to concetti. L"gal demand will be madt
nnon this ex-omci&l to produce tbew
hooka. Itni tie dtmocra' c
parly now in the adminiB'r
tion at Springfield owes itj o the peotl
to persist in that demand, and to makt
exhibit of just what was done with the
cash received in the insurance depart
ment of the auditor's office. What be
came of the cashT It is important to
know. If Mr. Pavey persists in regard
ing public records as private property
and continue possession of them notwith
standing official demand upon him that
they be surrendered to the state, it is the
duty of the administration at Springfkld
to proceed against him criminally.
The World's Fair.
Some idea of the magnitude of the fair
at Chicago is given by a report of the
estimates of the amount to be received
from privileges and concessions. Tbe
' last concession has been let, and tbe ess
mates cf receipts from this source is thus
given by the Chicago Tribune:
Restaurant, inns, etc $2,500,000
Intramnral tlec'ric railway !00,(hO
Lanachra, basins and lagoons 75 (XI
Wheel cba.rs 250,000
Barre Sliding railway 100 000
Clow Sanitary couccssion 45,,000
Conker's catalogues 5"0. 0
Midway Piahance 1, -2(0,000
Of tbe restaurant receipts one-fourth
goes to the exposition, which, of course,
the restaurant keeper adds to his bill,
and tbe visitor will be expected to pay $1
for a 75 cent meal. In Europe it is esti
mated that the restaurant receipts eq is!
the gate receipts.
Tbe Intramural railway is an electric
line, elevated. The fare is to be 10 cents,
one-fourth going to the r position com
pany. The owners expect 16.000.000
Everything at Chicago has been done
On a graod scale, and to cover contingen
cies, estimates of receipts have been, ac
cording to outsiders, at extravagant fig
ures. On landscape gardening $ 350,000 has
been expended, under the direction of
H. C. Codman, who died Friday morn
ing after a short illness, and who had
been connected with the exposition since
August, 1890. The chief of construction
consulted tbe landscape architects even
as to the grades and tka location of every
The rapid growth of the movement for
university extension is one of the most
striking educational developments of oar
times. Indeed, as the Hon. W. T. Har
ris, United States commissioner of educa
tion, has said, it is one of the most re
markable movuments of the 19th century.
This will be better appreciated when it i
Said that It is but little over two years
since the first university extension lecture
was given in America. Tbe movement in
the Mississippi valley is still in its infan-
cy, although it has had in a lim
ited way, -a marvelous growih. ' In
Chicago there are no less than 25 local

work has grown and extended to Au

Other towns In Illinois; also to La Porte,
La Fayette, Bloomington, Indianapolis
and many other towns in Indiana, and
to a number of towns in Michigan, among
which it is only necessary to mention De
troit, Flint and Kalamczoo. In other
states the work has been rapidly ad
vanced, and there are a great many centres
in Wisconsin, Minnesota Iowa and Mis
The university of Chicago is the first
institution to recogiize the extension
idea in its fullness and has organized a
university extension division to develop
it- Among the instit itions Witoso jm
pathies have been a-oused one might
name Knox college, tbe University of
Illinois, the Illinois Wttleyan nniv.mty,
De Pauw college, Purdue university,
Wabash college, the University of Indi
ana, Wheaton college and Monmouth col
lege. Universi y extension is the means for
the diffusion of tbe knowledge and the
culture of our seats of learning. The
lecture studies which nave been organ
ited in a great many tc wns are intended
to interest and inspire the student to
reading and. study. They cannot be
called technical, for they appeal to audi
ences as mixed as those of any church.
In the extension andiet ce may be found
ministers, lawyers, doctors, teachers, peo
ple of leisure and artia ms. Further in
formation on this interesting subject can
be bad by addressing the university of

LONDON, Jan. 30, A remarkable row is
being made over the attempt by the London
school board to develop and encourage
patriotic feeling in children's breasts by
ornamenting every elementary school with
the national flag and by talking to the
youngster soccasionally ibout the great
deeds of their fighting ancestors. The in
ternational peace and at nitration society
first took alarm and protested vehomently
against the proposal ns an insidious at
tempt to gloss over the h irrors of war and
discredit peaceful methods of settling dis
putes. Worktnffinen Take 'p the Cry.
They actually organized public meetings
of protest and, stranger still, obtained
large audiences and induced them to pass
resolutions denouncing tie wicked school
board. Now the workinginen are lashing
themselves into a state of great indigna
tion over the board's militarism, and are
actually repudiating their ancestors in lan
guage which sounds strtngely from the
mouths of hectoring Englishmen. The
gas workers' union, for instance, urges the
board, instead of making the children
"worship the triumphs ol the British flag
or the rapacity of tyranny and oppression,
to cultivate the nobler ideals of a reign of
universal brotherhood and peace."

While it is over ihirty years ago since
Allcock's Porous Piasters were first intro
duced to the medical profession aiid
public, tbe marked success and unprece
denti d popularity which they met with
not only continues, hutsteaduy increases.
No other plasters hive beeti introduced
whi: h gain so msny testimocials of high
value as those continuously accorded to
Allcock's Porous Plasters aad the only
motive for these exceptional tributes lies
in tbe fact of their being medical and
pbarmacutical preparation of superior
value. Additional proof of .he true val
ne of Ailcock's Porous Pi as era lies in
tbe fact that tbey are being largely imi
tated by unecrupulons persot s, who seek
to deceive the public by offering plasters
wbic'a they claim to be tie "same,"
"equal. " "as good," "better," "best
porous plaster," etc., while it is in gener
al appearance only that tbey resemble
Allcock's. Every one of tbe so-called
porons plasters are imitations of All

"Could I get a little it formation
from youP" asked a farmer -like-looking
man at the Northwestern station
"Yes, air," replied the officer.
"Well, I want to know how these
confidence men work."
"In various ways. Sometimes they
borrow money and give a worthless
check on a bank."
"They do, eh?" gasped the man, with
a sudden start.
"Yes; or pernios they borrow money
and turn over a check for a trunk.
When yon go to look for th3 trunk it
is not to bu found."
"By George!" muttered the man.
"Then again they sell you a bogns
bond, or borrow money on it.'
"And tbey sometimes hire -.heir vic
tims to boss a mill or factory some
where, and then borrow money to pay
a freight bill."
"Four different ways!" shouted the
man, as he jumped clear of t he floor.
"And IH be hanged if I haven't been
taken in on every one of 'em in a ride
of a hundred miles! Say, come down
and show me the river the deepest
spot in the river the place where I
can drop in and won't never come to

QUEER KINDS OF MONEY.
Curiosities in Paper Currency from For
"The paper money of the United
States is the least handsome in the
world," said the proprietor of a money
exchange to a 'Washington Star, re
porter. "That is because this govern
ment depends entirely upon the intri
cacy and elaborateness of the designs
on its notes and certificates for pro
tection against counterfeiters. In for
eign countries, on 'the other hand,
much effort is directed to making their
currency beautiful, with pictures and
arabesques in the classic style. Not
only are the results more pretty to look
at, bnt they serve their chief purpose
better, for any practical engraver
will tell you that real art work on a
bill is far more difficult to imitate
than any purely mechanical effect, no
matter how complicated the fater may
be made by the geometric lathe and
"Most beautiful of all paper notes
are those issued in France and Prus
sia. Here is a pretty Austrian bill for
1U0 florins, printed in blue ink, with
the design mainly composed of two
large standing figures of cherubic
children and an "oval of children's
heads. That seems a queer notion
from our point of view for the orna
mentation of currency, but it is .cer
tainly both interesting and haudsome.
This is a Russian bill for 100 rubles,
done in pink and green. Here you
you have a Scotch note, issued by the
British Linen company, wliich prom
ises to pay 5 pounds on demand. In

"You will need a magnifying glass to
examine this note with; it is Irish.
The wonts 'One pound' are printed
across it in big letters, and this stripe
extending from one end to the other
of the document is a curiosity, it seems
to have no significance, but when mag
nitied you will perceive that it 7s
wholly made up of microscopic letters.
From the supertieial appearance of the
Bank of England notes you would sup
pose that they could be readily imi
tated by photography or otherwise, in
asmuch as their designs consist of very
little more than lettering in black that
is almost severely simple. But that
greatest of all financial institutions de
pends altogether upon the water mark

elaborate, as you can see by looking
at the light through it. This water
marking has been imitated, but never
with ruut'li success."
