When all this is accomplished Taylor's

in view of the way he is being feted and

thikt the basis of his suit would be for
impairment of digestive apparatus and
general debility resulting from excessive

over Benedict, two or three fatted calves

A good authority on the wheat mar
ket, the Pioneer Press, in its issue of the
11th, says: The wheat market was iu a
timorous condition at Chicago yesterday
resulting chietiy from the prevailing uu
oertaiuty as to the actual condition of
tbe crop hero and abroad. The specula
tors were awaiting with anxiety the gov
ernment report. It is published in our
columns this morning, and its figures do
not justify the tendency to bearisbness
which was exhibited yesterday. For the
Winter wheat prospect has fallen to 71
per cent -and this is a heavy factor in
tbe wheat supply embracing the bulk of
tbe crop in the central belt of western
states from Ohio to Kansas and Nebras
ka. On the other hand the spring wheat
crop shows a high average, 'JT.b per cent
for the principal spring wheat states.
Minnesota stands at the head of the
group in tier prospective yield, being 100
per cent against Wisconsin 97, Iowa, 101,
South Dakota 1*8, North Dakota 90, Ne
braska 60. Washington and Oregon
show good wheat prospects, but they
don't count. Unless all the advices re
ceived by the Pioneer Press are errone
ous the government report in regard to
the acres sown to wheat in this state
aud the Dakotas, in comparison with last
year most be considerably exaggerated.
The answers to the inquires made by
the Pioneer Press on this subject last
spring indicated a general reduction of
tbe wheat areas in this state of not lees
than 25 per cent and approximately the
same' in North Dakota. Tbe govern
ment report makes the wheat areas in
these.three stales tbe same as last year.
It is hardly likely that this the case
But the Washington report does not ex
aggerate the present condition of the
crop in Minnesota aod the two Dakotas.
All observers testify that it never look
ed so well before at this Reason of the
year. It has the rich solid green of n
strong rooting and stool and vigorous
growth. Unless some unforeseen calam
ity disappoints its present promise it will
be the heaviest wheat yield which has
rewarded the labors of the farmer* for
many years.
Ac Middle AgeO Man Contract* It Wilt

gradually gone up until now, in a good
restaurant, an ordinary stew costs 25
cents. In tho old restaurant there was
a cloth upon the table, but this clotl:,

Tho waiter brought tho stew in an oys

it and set it down you were afraid it
might burn his thumb. Bnt tho oysters
wore good. Let me pause to remark that
the oyster is something to be grateful

perhaps, is cherry or mahogany, finely

You get two kinds of crackers, and
plenty of them, ami a generous portion
of French bread. Tho butter comes in
a sightly little cone. The table furni

brilliantly lighted with the modern in
candescent lamps. Tho stew conies in
an oval dish that rests upon a plate. 1
don't like to eat out of such a dish so
well as I do out of a plate, but you

The Word Clear.
The word "cigar" is believed to come
from the Spanish cigarra, meaning a
grasshopper, and at first the significance
and propriety of the term seem ques
tionable. But in Spanish a garden was
cigarral, or the place where the grass
hopper sang. Tobacco was usually grown
in a cigarral, and when the leaves were
rolled up and brought to a guest the
host, specially to recommend the prod
uct, was careful to state that it was
grown in his own cigarral. Thus.the
word which means grasshopper came, in
a modified form, to be applied to the
habitat of the grasshopper, and finally
to the cigar, whose material was grown

Memphis Meeting the Largest
of Its Kind Ever Held in
This Country.
Farmer and Lawyer, Artisan
and Merchant Fighting for
One Principle.
MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 13.—The larg
est meeting ever held in this country
for the discussion of a single economic
question convened at the Auditorium
in this city. Certainly no such out
pouring of men of all classes, from the
tiller of the soil to the representatives
of the bench and bar, the artisan and
the merchant representing all political
parties, but unanimous upon at least
one principle of governmental policy,
has ever been seen in the South. While
an overwhelming majority of the dele
gates to the "honest money" conven
tion, called in the interest of freejand
unlimited coinage of «%lver at a raslio of
16 to 1, come from this section of the
country, the representation includes
almost every state south of the Ohio
river and west of the Mississippi from
Puget Sound to tho Keys of Florida
from the Mexican boundary to the Po
tomac. It may more properly be
A Monster Mm Meeting
than a convention, for there is no fixed
basis of representation, and it is not
held'under the authority of any polit
ical organization. The promoters of
the conference claim n6 credit for
briugir.g about this imposing demon*
stration. This they are generous
enough to accord to their opponents,
the "»*.nd money" advocates. They
say this spontaneous manifestation of
a strong aud growing public sentiment
may be traced directly to the conven
tion of May 28, at which Secretary of
the Treasurv Carlisle was the guest of
honor. Taking their cue from that
gathering, an invitation was extended
to the friends of free silver to partici
pate in a counter demonstration with
a result that far exceeds the expecta
tion of any of the leaders of the more
All Parties Represented.
While the gathering comprises Dem
ocrats, Republicans and Populists and
supposedly non-partisan, there is much
of interest to the political observer.
The convention, despite the presence
of delegates representing the two old
parties and the third party, is not like
ly to consult in anything mbre than an
amount of speech making and the adop
tion of strong free silver resolutions.
The convention was called to order
by Colonel Young, who extended
the usual greetings to the con
vention, and saluted the delegates
as the advance guard of a mighty army
to overthrow a power more ruthless
and rapacious and more hurtful to hu
man happiness and prosperity than any
despot that ever shackled lifterty and
oppressed mankind.

A Clever Way to Get a Dinner.
I happened to be one of a party of six
dining tho other night at an up town
restaurant. Most of us were strangers to
each other, having met only in the aft
ernoon in tho course of business. There
were a banker, a politician, a lawyer, a
theatrical manager and a something else,
I do not yet know what, in the company.
The something else made himself ex
ceedingly agreeable. Ho was, in fact,
the life of the party. He was politeness
itself, and his wit and epigrams were
fetching. After dinner he rather'sud
denly and mysteriously dropped out of
sight and was missed.
"Who was the gentleman?" I asked
of the theatrical manager.
"I'd sure I don't know," he replied.
"I thought he was a friend of yours."
"No, I never saw him before. I sup
posed he was a friend of yours," I Baid.
Then I put the same question to each of
the others and found that the man was
unknown to any of the party. He had
simply invited himself to dine with us,
behaved like a jolly good fellow and
disappeared at the right moment. The
only thing we have against him is that
he forgot to pay his bill—New York
Shakespeare's Name.
It has often been a puzzle to students
of Shakespeare why his name is spelled
in so many different ways. Shakespeare
himself is said to have signed his name
on different occasions "Shakspeare" and
Shakespere,' and learned disquisitions
have been written to prove which is the
proper spelling. None perhaps was more
amusing than the "weather" reason
given in 1851 by Albert Smith, who
averred that he had found it in the Har
leian MSS. It was as follows:

Bow These Commendable Aids to Matri
mony Should Be Conducted.
"Spooning" parties are popular in
Home quarters. They take their name
from a good old English word which
was intended to ridicule the alleged fan
tastic actions of a young man or a young
Woman who is in love. For some reason,
which no one ever could explain, every
body pokes fun at tho lover. In fact,
that unhappy character is never heroic
in real life, no matter what great gobs
of heroism'aro piled about him on the
stape, and in all the romantic story
books. The girl in love and the boy in
love are said to bo "spoony.
When a "spooning" party is given,
the committee in charge of the event re
ceives a spoon from each person who at
tends, or else presents each guest with a
spoon. These spoons are fancifully
dressed in male and female attire, and
are mated either by the similarity of
costume or by a distinguishing ribbon.
The girls and boys whose spoons are
mates are expected to take care of each
other during the continuance of the so
cial gathering.
Of course the distribution of the spoons
is made with the greatest possible care
fulness, the aim being to so place them
as to properly fit the case of the young
people to whom they are presented. The
parties are usually given by the young
people of some neighborhood where the
personal preference of each spoony is
well known, and they are the eource of
no end of fun. It is possible also that
they serve as aids to matrimony as well,
and are therefore commendable, since
an avowal is made more easy to a diffi
dent swain after he feels that his pas
sion is not a secret, but that his weak
ness for a "spoony" maiden is known to
his friends and enemies on the commit
tee which dispenses the spoons. It may
be mentioned that after the spoons have
been distributed among tho guests, each
couple retires for consultation regarding
the reasons which caused the award of
mated spoons in their case. This consul
tation is known by the name of "spoon
