It appears that in calculating at the aniouut due the president each month there has been an under payment of one cent, which could be only rectified and the treasury books kept straight by drawing for that amount iu the president's fHVor. The long talked of refund of direct war tax due Dakota territory umouutiug to half of a little over $3,200 has (just been covered into the South Dakota treasury. Sioux Falls Press, SJ0: The Black Hills region has another "lifer" ready to oontribute to the peniteniary in this oity by the name of William Davidson. This lifer deserves his sentence. He had been employed by Orlando Giles, a thrifty farmer atd cattle grower in that section, and becoming too gay with Giles'wife he was dismissed. Soon after tie murdered Giles and set up house keeping with Mrs. Giles on the farm. This occurred two years ago and he has juslbeeu convicted. The recent tie-up of Watertown saloons was effected by a deputy states attorney and a deputy sheriff appointed by the oourt. It must be a iritile galling to the duly elected officers of these positions to have their incompetency, or recreancy to their official oath thus publicly ex posed to contempt. A man had better not have office at all, than having it sac rifice the public weal for the personal in terest of his particular frieudt*. Pierre Free Press: Some of the most prominent Catholics of the country have refused to obey the recent -edict requir ing them to sever their membership in secret societies. There are only three churches which have ever expressed in auy way public disapproval of secret societies. They are the Catholic, Luth eran and Presbyterian. Secret orders with hardly an exception have as their prime object the bettering of mankind in all respects, and no doubt if the churches would more thoroughly study their object all objection would be silenced. Among many beautiful and truthful things said by Bob. McBride in his Mitchell Mail of the late llobl. Buchan an is the following chunck of worldly wisdom: For bis personal popularity, the ac cumulation of earthly gear, the worst place you can put such a man is at the head of a newspaper. Only the priest through the confessional learns of so much weakness and wickedness among humanity. The priest hears of it, but the editor hears and sees it too. The treachery, the untruth, the dishonesty, the corruption, the beastly greed for gain, the unholy sacrifices for fame and place, ail reach the clergyman through auricular confession. In the line of his business as newsmonger in discharge of his duty as local annalist in the crea tion of statesmen, and association with politicians, the newspaper man learns of the fraility, meauness, ingratitude, immorality, baseness of man and woman tot through the ear alone, but the eye, and by dreadful daily experience. There fore, men like the late Hubert Buchanan, truth seekers truth speakers uncompro mising in principle and unyielding to pecuniary influence, tread a thorny path in editorial life. Their unselfishness, courage, industry, learning are not with out their reward, for the earth is better, the air purer, from the utterances and examples of such, long after their earth ly tabernacles of clay have mouldered away. Passion and envy, the wounded pride of toadies and hypocrits and wrongdoers, compose the conscript armies of haters and maligners, against this Robert Buchanan type 6f white sou led truth tellers. Bui when death comes, the evil host is infected and •links into slimy seclusion. Why i|t„ ion? WASHINGTON. July SNOW IN SAVANNAH. A Novrlty Which Almoet Made pie Wild Whoa tho miutlu of three i.— Consul War ner at Cologne, -rrnauy, some time ago reported to the state department that the government had found fault with the evaporated apples shipped lrom the United States to Germany, because they were dried in line grates.

MIOW w:is spread bow to tai o it ut Tlun thuy turned In to have fan. All day tho city was practically in tho hands of merrymak ers. Tin? pjoplo wont wild over tho suow. It was worse than three years *go. Then, on the occasion of a very •light fall of snow, home merchants got outside their stores and began snow balling each other, and a policeman in terfered with the sport. They turned on him and made it so hot for him that ho was glad to retreat, at first slowly, but afterward at double quick, and ho finally broke into a run and was chased to the barracks, a distance of about l}a miles, by a howling mob of a thousand men, women and children. Tho school childreu wore dismissed for tho day after roll call in tho morn ing, so they joined the throng on the streets. Staid and sober business men, bankers, lawyers and clergymen went along the streets with tightly packed balls of snow iu their hands roady to pelt acquaintances, or, in fact, anybody that made a good target. Bangl and the silk, hat worn by a banker or lawyer would leave the head of wearer and land far out in the street. As the owner attempted to capture it a volley of snow balls would come from another direc tion. The eh-ctrio cars were a mark for a large portion of tho merrymakers, and conductors and motorinen were treated as targets put up expressly for tho snowball sharpshooters. Tho con ductors hid themselves inside tho cars most of tho timo. Along in the after noon, when, the fun bad beconio more furious and the snow was so soft that snowballs could be packed like solid ice, the motormen, after leaving one street crossing, would go insido the car and stay there until the next crossing was reached, thus escaping the bombardment directed at tho cars. v Tho women, both young and old, were not far bohind the men iu the sport. Tho height of tho excitement was reached late in tho afternoon, when an improvised sleigh turned from ono of tho side streets iuto Bull street. It was followed by about 50 mou and boys, but onco on this principal thoroughfare tho crowd increased tenfold and tho noise correspondingly. The sleigh went up the street and down again. Every man, woman and child wanted a sleigh ride. The frail conveyance was swarmed with passengers all the time, and the horse was well nigh exhausted by drawing the load and being pummeled with snow balls. Tho breaking of windows became a favorite pastime. On many street car. not a whole pane of glass would be found when they returned to the car house, so the order was given to haul off the closed cars, and after that only open cars were run, and tho conductors and motormen alone were left as tar gets. No. passengers ventured to ride in the open cars. At the Screvan House Severn 1 large plate glass windows were broken, and in other parts of the city damage of a similar nature was report ed. Requests were sent to police head quarters that tho snowballing be stop ped, but no attention was paid to theui, ttie police remembering the experience of There were a few serious accidents. One man was struck in the eye with a snowball in which was a small stone. The eyeball was injured, and loss of sight of ono eve may follow.—Savannah Letter. REDUCED NOBILITY. The Count Plunged, Lrnt, Was Rained, tad Bli Daughter Hectune a Thief. The caso of a ruined noble family was made pnblio last week, says a Paris correspondent. Count Stozzi hazarded tho whole of his fortune iu big land building speculations in Rome a few years ago and for two or three short weeks was seemingly an assured winner of millions. But a crash came while his operations were still open, and ho went under, with scores of families as noble, as ancient and as reckless. The count's young daughter was en gaged to bo married at tho time, but her lover proved as fickle as fortune, and the ruined family retired to Bo logna. The yoong countess, in order to support her parents, took a place as chambermaid and recently, under stress of poverty, stole some of her mistress' jewelry, and being tried and convicted was mercifully sentenced to only 12 days' imprisonment, the judge admit ting as extenuating circumstances the sad change in her family's fortunes. The publicity thus given to tho case may possibly prove tho salvation of the family. The young counters is now 28 years of age. Proposed Legislation For Sleeping Cars. In New York, for example, a uniform rate of fcO cents for a berth, without regard to distance, is called for in, Pennsylvania tho rate demanded is fl for tho first 100 miles and 50 cents for each additional 100 miles.

A bill is almost certain to pass in Arkansas limiting the rate to half a oent a mile, and the legislators of Texas are minded to fix the rate at $1 a night, etc.—New Orleans Times-Democrat Life's Lottery* A remarkable instanoe of the queer things turned out by life's wh6el of for tune came to public notice yesterday: at Bismarck.

Siberia, brings news that the in dications are good for anothei Oriental war. Unknown to the out side world Captain Sanderson, of the steamer, says that Russia has massed 80,000 men at Vladivostock and it is be lieved in Siberia that preparations are being made for an advance on Japan. Captain Sanderson says: "Russia has been secretly but ac tively at work, and in the event ot trouble with Japaii is preparing to hurl a formidnble naval and land force into the coveted territory which Japan has wrested from China. These ships and troops have been massed at Vladivo stock, where The Keen* I* Decidedly Warlike.

Inside the harbor the entire Pa lfic fleet of Russian war ships are massed ready to steam down the coast at a moment's notice. On shore 80,000 troops have been concen trated, and the evidence is clear that Russia is fully prepared for trouble in case the Japanese give any occasion. Taking Foreigner* oa Board. HONG KONG, July 2.—The British admiral ha» withdrawn the guard froiii (he Island of Formosa and has offered take foreigners aboard his ships. The German admiral has made a sim ilar offer to Germans.

When the member of years beforo 1889 heard of tho new rules of tho house, by which he could not be admitted to tho floor without sending a card to tlib speaker, he was tilled with contempt about the new fangled exelusiveuess of the members who had succeeded him. In his timo any one was admitted to the floor of the house and occupied seats of members. The rear of the hall used to' be lined with lobbyists, and nobody kicked. But even the now rules of 1889 were mild compared with the red tape it now requires to get on the floor, into one of the luxurious new chairs, which the mob in the men's publio gallery can never hope to attain to. In the first place, the visitor to the hall is stopped by the sentinel at the outer gate and told that he must send in a card to the member he wishes to see. A card to be filled out by him is furnished as fol lows: Mr. desires to see Representative Of at the door. The sentinel at the outer gate panes this card in to the inner guard, who, in blue uniform and bright brass buttons, is etationod in tho space between the outer ramparts and the inner breast works. This inner guard takes the card to tho member whose presence is de sired, who comes out to see tho man, if he chooses, or, if he is a man ho does not wish to see, the caller may cool his heels on the handsome marble corridor. But if the member goes out and wishes to invite his friend in he must take an other card, of which the following is a sample: Representative desires to invite Mr... to the floor of the house of representa tives. This he must fill out with the name of his friend and tako In person to the speaker, leaving his friend outside whilo tho red tape is being unwound. If tho speaker consents, then he may usher his friend in and give him a seat in ono of the envied places.—Boston Cor. Spring field Republican. CHOLLY AND THE INCOME TAX. The Idea Is Odious to the Dudes, and They Cant "Make Out" the Papers. The income tax fellow has been around to see ma I was out. So be left his card in the shape of a huge printed document as big as a copy of The Recorder. It is covered with affidavits, and I have signed them all. I believe I've sworn that I'm worth $4,000 a year that I'm not that I'm a chargo on the county, and that I am as rich as Jack Astor. It's tho most muddled up paper I ever tried to read and understand. I believe that I am what is called a person of ordinary intelligence, yet I can't make tho thing out at all. What show will tho chappies have who don't come np to my high order of intelloct? Thero is some frightful penalty, "with boiling oil in it," provided for any ono who distorts the truth in mak ing bis returns, but how to tell the truth is what bothers me. Tho whole idea of an income tax is odious to us dudes. It makes us begin to think how we live anyhow, when tho whole joy of life is in not knowing anything about such things. "I suppose I've got money," said Dottie Onativia yesterday, looking over his high collar at his varnished boots and smart clothes, "but I'll be hanged if I know how much. I will ask my man if he has any idea." But "his man" didn't know and re minded Dottie that bis wages for the last few months had not, etc.—Cholly Knickerbocker in New York Recorder. Of Interest to AIL "During dangerous weather of this sort,"said the old doctor, "the most oareful persons are apt to catch a cold in their chests that will extend swiftly to the lungs if not attended to. It usu ally makes its presence known by a con stricted sensation just under the breaat bone, where the flesh is the thinnest. When a person experiences this feeling, he can rest assured that he can procure almost instant relief by drinking a cup of water as hot as he can bear to take in the mouth and to swallow. There is no better medicine in the world to arrest the progress of a cold than hot water, and, besides its effect upon the stomach and the system generally, it is bene ficial 4n the highest degree. And in sore throat the remedy will be found almost a specific."—Washington Star. Not mm Gritty as a Hen. William Godson of Albuquerque, N.
