Some holiness fanatios of Indiana
have set September 15, as the day
on which the world will come to
an end, and are making their ar
rangements accordingly.. They
claim to have a divine presenti

A good point for business, men
to bear in mind when writing
their ads. is to ."pick . out their

T.ie latest bulletn, just issued,
by the Oregon Fruit Union says
that "the eastern markets still re

more favorable for the shipper."
That means,, we suppose, that the

A new law in New York goes in

secrecy to be maintained by all
who handle telephone "messages.
Under it provisions any telephone
employe who improperly .reveals a
message may be fined $1000 or im
prisoned for six months 'and the
same penalty is fixed for any per

address to his readers gives evi
dence of a contrite heart and re
turning sanity r "My debt of grat
itude to those who have done all
they could to sustain the, paper is
only exceeded by the debt I . owe

has nominally five, hut actually only
one vessel in commission to its credit,
for the San Francisco Ib on her way to

a "home'1 port, -although within the
lines of the station), and the llachias is
destined, for China. The dynamite
cruiser Vesuvius is therefore likely to
' be the sole war vessel left for service
on the eastern coast of the United
States, and the practicability of the
.Vesuvius as on effective battleship is
in serious doubt. At the navyyardat
Mare Xsland, Cel., the old Mohican is
fitting for sea service, presumably in
the South Pacific. The coast defense

to her in point of time are Emperor
J?raneis Joseph of Austria and Fred

The oldest monarch, accord

who is more than eighty-three years of
age. The grand duke of Lunerabourg

seventy-six and seventy-five years of
age, stand next to him in this regard.
Grand nuke Karl Alexander, who
