accepted at a meeting In Springfield,

at Springfield a departmental staff had
been agreed upon to pronecute the work
of organizing post.
The first State convention or encamp
ment to form the Department of Illi

July 12, MM. At that time there were
already thirty-nine Orand Army post

a few women who are In
a business. They are out
early and late, always on hand for the
hist Issue of the "Extra," and they
push themselves forward quite as ac
tively as the newsboys hustle. Such
women do not resort to subterfuge.
They do not play for sympathy, nor do
they clalmny favors because of their
sex. They rely upon their push, en
ergy and perhaps love of the excite
ment. . Anyway, they go about It like a
merchant who knows his goods have
merit and that It is his business to
proclaim that fact far aud near.
There are a few quite old women In
the busluess of selling newspapers on
the street, and their age aud feebleness
oblige them to have a regular place to
sit dowu. They have regular customers
who buy of them out of honest sym
pathy because It Is their chief If not
their only means of support, and rarely
ever Is change asked when a nickel Is
given. This class, as a rule, are neat

there are no young women In the busi

streets In Chicago, but there are a num

years, and nearly all of them are bold,
persistent and always chewing gum.
They look untidy and seem to have no
ambition to better their condition.
BIRDS THAT DO NOT SING.
They Fur Outnumber the Musicians of
the Feathered Family.
Singing Is applied to birds In the same
seuse that It Is to human beings the
utterance of musical note. Every per
son makes vocal sounds of some kind
but niauy persons never attempt to
sing. So It is with birds. The eagle
screams, the owl hoots, the wild goose
honks, the crow caws, but none of these
discordant Bounds can be called sing'
With the poet, the singing of birds
means merry, Ijgut-hearted Joyousncss,
and most of us are. poetic enough to
view It In the same way. Birds sing
most In the spring and the early sum
mer, those happiest seasons of the year,
while employed in uost-bulldlng and In
rearing their young. Many of our most
musical singers are silent nil the rest
of the year; at least they utter only low
chirpings. It Is uatural, therefore, that
lovers of birds should regard their sing
ing as purely an expression of Joy In
the returning spring, and lu their happy

chickens. The gobble of the turkey
cock, the dctlant crow of the "bob-
white,'' are none of them true singing;
yet It Is quite probable that all of these
sounds are uttered with precisely simi
lar motives to those that inspire the
sweet warbling of the soug-sparrow,
the clear whistle of the robins or the
thrilling music of the wood-thrush.

Starting In the Chicken Businesi,
there Is a story told of a shrewd
Yaukee who liegau In business without
any capital at all.
He borrowed a broody hen from one
neightior and a setting of eggs from
Having set the hen he soon had
fine brood of chicks, but was now In
dilemma as to how he could pay back
tie unaiiy solved the difficulty by
keeping the hen until she had laid the
required number of eggs, when he re
turned both the hen and the eggs, and
guessed he had as fine a lot of chick

too. There are men In western Ne

Silencing; the Boaster.
A certain man was very much given
to bragging about grand relations aud
connections, though he was not al
ways quite convincing.
On one occasion he was particularly
tiresome, holding forth about "Lady
Blank, whom I met yesterday, a con
nection of mine through Lord So-and-So
and the Earl of Nobody," and so on.
A Scotsman present said, quietly:
"That reminds me o' a mau l knew,
who said he was a relation o' the Duke
o' Argyll, and explained It this way:
'The duke's piper's sister's wee laddie
has a wee doggie that's aln brlther to

HOW CHINESE ARE ARMED.

Is not to be supposed that they- could
see their way by night unless each car
ried a light, aud in one of the recent
attacks on Tien tsin the Chinese forces
advanced, each soldier carrying his
lantern. The allies waited until the
Chinese were wltMn easy distance and
then opened on them with a rapid-fire
gun, whereupon the Chinese fled, leav
ing their lanterns on the field.
Still others of the Chinese forces are
armed with their ancient glngals, the
first of firearms Invented, loaded with
powder and shot and touched off at the
vent with a stick of lighted Incense,
These old guns have been In use among
the Chinese for upward of 1,500 years.
But alongside of these same regi
ments are others using almost every
known kind of modern arms and drill

modern rifles and muskets are known
to be In use In the Chinese armies, aud
great demoralization has frequently
occurred. by the dealing out of ammu

ment that used another. In the maju,

Standard Mine at Wallace I Putting
In a Bi( riant.
Wallace, Idaho, Sept. . 10. The
Standard Mining Company is putting
in a new air compressor and electric
plant at the mine. The foundation is
completed and some 0 f the machinery
is on the ground. Tbe new compressor
will have a capacity of 60 drills, the
present being only of 15 drills. In
putting it in the company is looking
far into the future. The 15-drill com
pressor is nearly large enough at pres'
ent, and the company does not desire
to work over 20 drills if they had ever
so much power, but to put in such a
compressor would only mean the addi
tion of still another new plant a'uiost
before this one wonld be running, so
it was decided while the change was
being made to get a machine that
would be larjje enough to do the work
for years to come.
