An unusual ■wedding took place here a few days ago when Lyman Palmer, aged 75, o£ New Orleans, was married to Mrs. Mary Palmer, aged 75, of. this city. They have both been married three times, and in spite of this the bride ** has never changed her name, all her husbands being Palmers. This last ono is a nephew of her first husband.—Waiikegan (Ills.) Dispatch. A Good Citizen Spends His Money Among the Local Tradesmen. The member of community who habitually ignores his home merchant, mechanic or tradesman and makes his purchases and spends -his money in other towns does not deserve the name of good citizen and should not be countenanced by those who have the best interests of their own locality at heart. That it pays to trade near home is a well established fact, and no town or city ever prospered whose citizens, enticed by the alluring baits held out by the merchant in the big cities, spend their money with them. The local merchant and mechanic are interested in the progress and development of the town and country in which they live, and every dollar they amass is reinvested and remains in the neighborhood. As they prosper their taxes increase, and just so much those of others are lightened. They assist in keeping up your schools, churches, and other public institutions and charities. But the person who spends his money in some distant city puts it beyond any local enterprise. The man in the city npon whom you bestow your custom has no further iuterest in you or your surroundings than the cash he receives from you. It is no concern of his whether you are as devoid of social, church or educational privileges as the inhabitants o£ BorrioboolaGha, or whether your streets or highways are well made or an aboriginal Indian trail. The surplus money which he has to bestow will go to enrich the exchequer of institutions from which you will never receive any benefit and to add to the wealth of communities in which you have no financial interest. And, further, there is no'good reason for this impolitic and unbusinesslike diversion of trade. The business men in the smaller cities and towns can and do sell goods year in and year out as cheaply as do those of the larger cities. The lower expenses, cheaper rent and inmunity from the exorbitant municipal taxes which prevail in the great cities, enable them to do so and still make a living profit. But the shrewd city merchants, by advertising certain goods at ridiculously low prices, manage to attract gullible patrons to their places of business, with the knowledge that they will succeed in. selling them other goods at advanced prices to reimburse themselyos for the loss on the "leader" and leave themselves a handsome profit. The home merchant is established here aud expects to pursue his busi-' ness among us indefinitely. The continuance of his trade is dependant upon this fair and uniform treatment of hit customers and tho quality of his goods. His field is limited and should he resort to shady methods or foist dishonest wares upon his patrons his reputation would be lust and his trade consequently gone. But the metropolitan merchant has a wide and an almost unlimited field. His patrons are from all parts of the country, and iE he can get one "good deal" from each one he does not expect them to return. The ideal community is that in wtjicl; there is a recipocracy of good feeling q,rnong merchants in all branches of trade, mechanics professional men, workingmen and farmers, each availing himself as far aa possible of the other's services, buying his goods or employing his labor, as the case may be. The community where this practice obtains is always found to be an exceptionally prosperous one, populated by cheerful, honest, neighborly and enterprising people, and a good -place for the home seeker tp locate in.—Ypsilanti Sentinel, -r—^r,— m* « m Electric Power for Weaving. July Crop Report. The returns at hand indicate that the wheat crop of the State this year will be about 15 per cent less than the crop of 1893. The reduction is entirely due to decreased acreage. The farm statistics returned by supervisors, so far as compiled, show a loss of "-5 per cent in the southern and northern counties, and of 19 per cent in the central. The average yield per acre will fall little if anything below the average of a long series of years. With the crop yet standing correspondents estimate as follows: Southern counties, 15.42 bushels; central counties, 15.74 bushels; northern counties, 16.13 bushels; State, 15.5Sbushels. The average yield per acre for the seventeen years has been as follows: Southern counties, 16.90 bushels; central counties, 15.42 bushels; northern counties, 13 62 bushels; State, 16.63 bushels. The harvest will be largely done in the southern and central sections of the State tbis week, or by July 14. The total number bushels of wheat reported marketed by farmers during the month of June is S66,361. The total number of bushels of wheat reported marketed in the eleven months, August—June, is 14,29S,306, which is 537,816 bushels more than reported marketed in the same months last year. The area planted to corn equals the area planted iu average. years. The per cent in the southern counties is 9S, central 102, State 100. In condition the crop ranges from 8S per cent in the southern section to 97 in the northern. The outlook for oats is promising. The area planted to potatoes has been largely increased throughout the state. Compared with average years the increase in the southern counties is 8 per cent; central, 12 per cent; northern, 10 per cent, and State 9 per cent. The average condition is high, rangeing from 95 to 99 per cent. Clover meadows and pastures are in bad condition, due to insect depredations. The timothy fields are in better condition, but are much below a fair average. Clover sowed this year promises well. Apples promise about three-fourths and peaches six-tenths of an average crop. One year ago apples were estimated at only four-tenths of an average crop. -Washington Gardiner, Secretary of State. More than oue-fifth of the 133,000 inhabitants of St. Etieune, France, are weavers and most of ths 1800 looms are ownedby individual weavers- and worked by hand in their own homes. The advantages of electric power are begin- ■ning to be appreciated, by these workers. A company bas established an electric station eight miles from the town, where a waterfall of 900 horsepower drives three turbines, and generates current which is transmitted through four quarter-inch cables. A recent report stated that 60 of these • home looms were being driven by the electric power, with a prospect of a very large immediate increase in the number. The cost of adding the electric power is about S~0 per loom, with a charge of §2 per month for the current supplied; and an owner of two electrically-driven looms declared that he could turn out 25 per cent more work than formerly. One of the large ribbon factories of Etienne, also employes electric power, using a separate motor for each of its 100 looms and generating the electricity on its premises by means of a large steam en- gine.and two dynamos. The movement produced is found to be more uniform and gentle than -that obtained by steam the first cost is not greater than that where any other system is used, and there"is a gain in economy of working and maintenance. d£**X& i HENS To produce eggsiab.nndnnfcly during.
