The Bulletin is on sale at the fal lowing places: Coleman's, 214 Eighth street. Haliiday House News Stand. Walker's, 101 Sixth street. Walker's, 10 Eighth street. Blue Front Restaurant. The committees charged with tho duty of collecting the money neces sary for Roosevelt. Day reported last night that they need about $1,00. more to make up the aura wanted. Some of the committee we're a little discouraged, because of failure to get what they felt they should pet from citizens, but there was little reason to doubt that the sum required would b? made up. Civic pride is too strong among the people of Cairo to admit of failure to secure a measly thousand dollars for an occasion no Important to the city in so many ways. As i erlcans we want to show that we are patriots, by giving duo recognition to tho president of the country; as Cal rnites we are proud of our city, and no one who Las prospered here, and who hopes to share In the future pros perity of the city." can rightfully say he has no concern in an event which la so rich In promise of good to the city as will be the president's visit next month, ft should not take much over ten minutes work to get that thousand dollars today.

This has not given fulljSatisfaetion, and has led to wide differences of opinion. Pius X. has settled the matter by a new de cree which goes Into effect at Easter, 1908. It declares valid all marriages celebrated before a diocesan bishop or before the parish priest of one of the contracting- parties cr before some one delegated by him.

SOMEUSES OF LIFE IN CHICAGO QUARTER OF A MILLION .OF CHILDREN EIGHT SCHOOL thousand registered first Time. No Fish Tust Possible in This Coun try Loved His Violincello Dig Wheat Crop. Chicago, Sept. 12. The worst !:! over for a year; (;: 'x renictut paira of legs have carried as iu.in hyj td girls to their school Iioiikoh for the first ilav of the new term. In Chicago last week was the tragic pe riod the time of renunciation. Now lessons have bikini in earnest an those who have been to the count rv for their vacation are getting used to city streets and smoky skies. Eight thousand pupils have registered fur the prst time or enough alono C? fill more than two hundred and fifty of tho little old red school houses where the parents of many of these chil dron got their first taste of the switch and speller. Hut those times are over for Chicago. The school house of today is a hamlsomo brirk or stone building, with steam heat, modern plumbing, ventilation ami no switches but elect rie ones. The oid "swiminin" hole" in the "crick" Is a thing of the past and large muni cipal baths have taken its place. It is perplexing and certainly pleus- ing in these days ot trust in mo.-st ever) tiling, to feel secure tainst the possibility of monopoly in anything. No one bu the Society of Ivpiity ha-. seilously attempted a combination to unit nd faim products: no trust w.i-s pi..ssilii l,ecau.e ill,- sou! ces of sup ply are ipni'luerabie. And now com -A a decision by a Cnited Stat, s circuit loutr that neither fishermen nor th-' public need worry about any possible (imi trust. Tills federal decision gave til.? total product ion of the Unit"..! .States at nut less than l,9'i0.it)U,oO;i iu'Uids of tisii. and gave a Chicago eoiseci'ii, A. Booth & Company, a judg ment for over $.j'i,'Mi.t against a con cern which claimed that Hoolh Company was a "nVh trust" and there fore was to be trilled with Impunity. The court held that, although Hooth &. Company handles in the neighbor hood of ,"o,u0i.i,liii0 pounds of fish each ear, as that amount Is only about 2 per ciStt of the total It is not at all formidable, particularly as there are some 10,000 other w holesale fish deal- r.4 and over 200.000 persona. Includ ing grocers and butchers who retail fish in the United States. The waters are open to any one who will lawfully fish with hook or net and therefore the supply of fish evidently is quite beyond' niono)oly, like products of the farms;' "A musical instrument is like a woman when it nets old you get at tached to it and don't mind its scars mid bleniises." Such was the novel plea of "Johnny" Hand when be ap-l-ared before. tb Hoard of Review t get his'taat assessment reduced. "Now this violincello of mine is an old friend," he dwlared. "I am attached to it, but it is worth not that," anl he snapped his liners. Then the hrhight-eyed old musician who has Won the hearts of more than three generations of Chicago folks as they danced to his music told the board about some of the good old time when Chicago was a busy litle town with high wooden sidewalks. ' I have stwk.s and bonds buried?'' he said In i,nswer to the laughing charge of Pres ident West "YAShy, I have nothing in the world burled but relatives and fond recoUections. I played for Tom, Dick and Harry in Chicago when this bur? was crude. I played high jinks for 'Long John' Wcntworth, Wilbur F. Storey, Fernando Jones, Moe' Me diil and a grist of others. I don't own any steam yachts. Tax me and you jtak away front Johnny Hand his b--j loved cello and bis musical libraray." iThe old Cernian paused and the sm- inlhitie board announced its verdict "No tax."

'I'U'.f was ihi statement made to the strikers at Brand's Hall yister.lay in a note sigu- e,l by Inteniation.il Seerelary Wesley Utissel!. "The fiiuini ial condition of the un ion is getting better ever hour." the note read. "We can hold out imie liuitely." A telegram from President S. J.

This was $p.'.,i.in). Accoiili'ic to the strike officials an itti-tiipt was made to stampede the strikers. Alter the aniKUincerm-.t had been made Tuesday that strike benefits could not be paid a number of operators circulated through the crowd iitnl demanded that President M. J.

VARYING MEASUREMENTS. Different Lengths of a Mile How a Rood Wa Determined. The standard yard prevails through out the United Kingdom, but the length of tho English, Scots and Irish tnllo is different in each, which Is the more curious, seeing that the English and American miles are id entical. Hut tho occasional locul var iations In our English acre are even niort remarkable.,: , Theso wer per haps originally due .to.' lUv.' inexacti tudes of ancient land surveying which wus comparatively of mien a fiea and easy, .description that the acres of neighboring coiinilew, not to say adjacent 'parishes," suineUmcB varied, says the Luulon Olobe. . .. A book published in the reign or Edward- VI. gives the following curi ously naive instruct ions on" .the sub ject:,, "Stand at the door of a church on Sunday and bid sixteen mfn to stop, tall ones and small ones, as they Itappen to pass out, "Then make them put their left feet one behind tha othci and the length thus obtained shall be a right and lawful rood to measure tho land with, and the six teenth part of it shall be a right uid Iaw.ul foot." Ti.is is almost laughable; but wo have only to apply to one of the older dictionaries to find that anything like exactness whether of defintitlon or of fact, is quite a modern scientific de velopment. And the story of the acre is a case In point. It was supposed to have been reduced to a conimou standard In 1305, but it was not until 1S21 that we enacted the statute aero of 4,8-10 square yards. With a loose system of measure ment prevailing for the ,Veatcr part of that long interval, it is not surprising that the so-called "acre" was too often what the local wiseacres' noppt'iied to make of it. By long use and wont it seema probable that the diswe-pas-clfs thus arising occasionally crystai ized Into customs 'of which some x amples' tstilt survive, A Wd-sn acre was formerly twice as large ur, aa English one, while a Scottish 'aero iff larger than ours by more than 1,000 square yards. According to authority, there aro seven different measures ef.ii 1 in ush by which tho aero may be varioualy deflned., Lanchashirc has within her boarders acres measured on a custom ary local scale, while tl:e so-called Cheshire acre is even larger than that o its Welsh neighbor. ANIMALS' CLEANSING! HABITS. Frog" Weekly Wash How Snakes Keep Clean Birds' Bath. The snake casts off hl3 clothing. The form of reptiles is not adapted for allowing them to clean themselves, but they do not allow a trifle like this to trouble them. They simply change their skins -as convenient Snakes shed their coats several times a year, toads lose only their epid ermis, or merely the mucous tnai covers it, cut mis sumces to ren der them clean. Frogs are said to moult every eight days, which amounts to a weekly washing. The aquatic blrd bathe in the op en, and wane disporting themselves in the water they take some of tho liquid in their bfil and besprinkle their entire body with it. The swallows skim the surface of ponds and dip their outspread tails into the water, th,." arterward turn the taijs uiider the belly by an abrupt motion, in order to sprinkle the body. After the bath all birds shake them selves vigorously and then proceed to smooth the f'.:;J:era c:k I ;, --n3 with the bill, i inally the hcul is cleaned by rul':i U in all directions upon the breast and the wings. Birds that live In families or gre garioubly share with each other these important operations. .This fact eas ily is verified in the domestic geese and ducks ot a poultry yard. Followed Orders. Admiral Slgsbee, in an after din ner speech said of the naval virtue of obediaiK-e: "Yet even obedience may be carried too far. "A lawyer about to go to court, said to his office boy: 'If any one calls say I'll be back at 12. Then he went to court. 'Any one called?' "Yes, sir," the lad said. Five beg gars.
