The following card sent out
by a Detroit commercial club,
is worth reading and pasting in
.; "If there is J any. chance to
boom business, boom it Don't

though you bad a sour stomach.

look for better things. Hide
your little hammer and trjle
speak well of others, atymatter
how small you really know your
self to be; When a stranger
drops in, Jolly him. tell him
this is the : greatest town on
earth and it is. Don't diacour
agy him by speaking ill of your
neighbors. Lead him to believe
that he has at last struck a place
where white people live. Don't
knock. Help yourself along
by beceming popular and push
your friends with you. It's
dead easy'.. Be a good '.' fellow,
and Boon you will bev. , jro
cee sion oirotlbwers. No man
ever, nelpea nimseir knocking
other people down in character
or business, No man ever got
rich; by trying to make others
believe he was the only man in
town who knew anything.
. Th imnnrtant news of vester
day was tnat wnicnwia 01 iu
sighting of the fleet of Admiral j
Toga'ofT Mindianaa, the south-:
ernmost island of the Philippine
archipelago. The ' conflict " on
which the prestige, if not the
fate, of Russia so largely de
pends can n6t, therefore," be
long delayed." Incapacity may
be charged against the Russian,
but not cowardice. There may
disaffection in the ranks of the
marine forces of the empire, as
there is in the land forces, but
it is not of sufficient strength to
prevent a fight or - to interfere
with the movements of army
nor of fleet. Whether there is
or is not disaffection, tbe con
flict between Rojestveneky and
Togo is near at hand and is
pregnant with the greatest re
'I "Against ihe I bravery of the
Japanese, their skill, their ex
perience. and their -wonderful
capacity at hitting the mark,
the"1 Russians ' have - little else
(haD bravery to offer. With
Togo-victorious it would , seem
to be the end. Otherwise, and
with the Kaiser showing bis
teeth, all guesses would be, in
deed, nothing ,, but - guesswork
and only more bloodshed a cei-taintly.

The Chicago & Alton railroad

has fotbidden its men to visit
race tracks, dance halls or any
resorts where liquor is sola or
gambling permitted. Good ser

steady habits, and both help in
sure publio safety.
