C. A. LINDENSCHMIDT Business Conditions Brighter. In no receot week have the developments pointing to improved business conditions been more marked than in the week just closed. Not only was there an increase In the volume °f business, but wages, wer-e. increased and the prices, qE commodities advanced. The gr.p,wth of confi,deuce. was noticeable and was unm,is.ta.kable. Such a combination of Jjorces tbLatj go to naake prosperity ha,s np,t been, s.eea this year, and, they cannot hfi ig-'isored or disregarded., " *PU«\ w*its ot 6 cents a bushel in the price of wheat is by far the most important development of the week, And this advance was not caused by expectations that au.fi Qpop will bo short, but Igacauge a preliminary inspection of the whole fields indicates that there will be no surplus product this year in the world. There is evidence that the crop all through Europe, will be short. By some experts this shortage is estimated at 120,600,000 bushels as compared with last year. This advance of six cents in wheat has been supplemented by a rise of li cents in corn and one-eight of a cent in cotton. Tho acreage planted to corn indicates a crop of approximately 2,000, 000,000 bushels, if it escapes the blight- ings windsjof a hot summer. The prosperity of the fajmet* renders certain the prosperity of all other producers,, Some Future Statesmen. Evidently they -will come from Wisconsin. The Review of Eeviewshashad its eye on this fine -western state for some time and finds that the students of "Wisconsin university are perhaps the leading debaters among the college boys of this country. They do not discuss frivolous matters either. This year the two leading literary societies had a debating contest. They discussed a question congress itself has been unable to decide. That was whether our present national hanking system is the best for the country or whether a great government banking system would not be better, the government algne having power to issue bank notes and circulate them. Iii that case there would be one great national bank, with branches in the cities. Tho boys ferreted out facte through the ages that bore on the case. Their fund of information would have made many a congressman feel his ignorance. The Review of Reviews says of this manly and intellectually invigorating work: It seems to tis that the extent to -which our college students carry their athletic contests is chiefly an indication of their splendid vigor and enthusiasm. The young men of the University of "Wisconsin show precisely that same quality of unahated ardor in their long and rigorous training for the annual debates. Last year they discussed the question of national ownership and operation of American railroads. In 1893 their debate was upon municipal, operation of lighting works and street railways. In 1S92 they discussed the expediency of international bimetallism. In 1891 their topic was the desirability of the prohibition of foreign immigration for a definite period. In 1890 they argued the question whether ol not tho tariff laws of the United States should be so modified as to put us upon a purely revenue basis by the year 1900. These annual debates have been going on in the University ol Wisconsin for about 23 years. Probably the majority of tho young men who have participated in them would testify that tho reading and study which they undertook in connection with preparation for the debate of their particular year wero the most valuable and formative thing in their college education.

Of all tho migratory birds the American wild pigeon and black duck are well up toward the front as regard long and rapid flight. The speed of the pigeons, can only be estimated, while that of the ducks can Tpe established by observation. Sqnje years ago the writer and a scientific friend measured off on the shore of a large western river aline exactly three miles long, and each took a station at opposite ends of the. line. The object Was to note, by means of preconcerted signals, the time a flock of wild ducks took iu passing up or down the river, near the stations. During three hours on the morning of a bright October day, observations were noted of the times of passing the stations of nine different flocks. Upon comparing watches it was found that the average time was 2 minutes and 42 seconds, thus showing the speed per hour to be 66^ miles, or one mile in 64 seconds. As showing how uniform was their flight, a difference was found of only five seconds between the greatest and the least intervals of time. As numerous flocks of wild geese were daily flying in the same neighborhood observations were also taken to test their hourly speed. Two points twenty- nine and one-third miles apart were selected, both of which were connected by telegraph. We succeeded in identifying four out of seven flocks which passed over both places during tha Jour days we wero on the wa^ch, The mean hourly speed was foiuid to be a fraction over 54 miles, The wild goose has been long supposed to bo the swiftest of all water fowl, but this experiment shows that he is far behind the wild duok.—New York World. Curfew Bell Works Well. Already several other cities havo adopted the famous "curfew" ordinance which has wrought such a revolution in favor of law and order in Stillwater, Minn. The terror and nuisance of cities large and small are the gangs of lawless boys that hang upon its streets in the evening, throwing stones, fighting and using foul aud blasphemous language in the ears of passersby. Not seldom they are thieves. They stone windows and destroy property. They grow bolder by immunity from'punishment and in a few years develop into gangs ot "burglars, who do not stop at even murder. Stillwater had her share of these young miscreants. The ordinance passed by her city council to abolish declared it unlawful for any boy or girl under 16 to he on the streets without parent or guardian after 9 o'clock at night unless sent on some-errand, and then it must be a clear case, and the boy or girl must go quickly and quietly about his or her business. Penalties were duly affixed for -violation of the ordinance. To notify all concerned when the hour for going indoors had arrived the city fire bell rings "nine slow taps consecutively." The measure worked like magic. It has abolished the gangs of young desperadoes that formerly- made evening hideous. Night hoodlums have vanished from the streets of Stillwater. Sleepless Nights. Who but those who "have "had the unhappy experience can tell the horrors or appreciate the unhappy experience of people troubled with sleeplessness? The damnable hatred of all the demons in hell for mankind must surely be appeased by the consciousness of such hu- mau suffering. The long, dreary, unhappy hours, who can describe them and why is it necessaryV If you have ever been troubled you know what they are, and if you have been spared you have no interest in the knowledge of such suffering. Mrs. A. Bateman, Romulus, Mich., after describing her suffering from sleeplessness extending over a period of eight years, receiving at times only tout twelve hours" sleep in a week, writes of Dr. Wheeler's Nerve Vitalizer as follows: "I began taking it in common doses and the first nigh tl slept eight hours end had a nap the next day. Every night since I have slept eight or ten hours. Oh, how thankful I am for having had Dr. Wheeler's Nerye Vitalizer brought to my notice and for the benefit received from it. Stop and think,eight years of sleeplessness and cured in a day, does it not seem like a miracle?" This medicine is equally as effective in curing nervous prostration, spasms, fits, sleeplessness, mental depression, exhausted vitality, despondency, sexual and general debility. "For sale at G. P.

It is absolutely pureeing preserved by a new process of fumigation and is used by churches for communion purposes wb.ere fermented wine is discarded; also by physicians where the medical properties of the grape are desired without stimulation. - If the invention which a Texas man has made does what he claims for it, it will add as much again to the efficiency of locomotive engines. At present the locomotive is driven by the forward stroke of the piston rod. Then the rod flies back again, and all the power of this back stroke is lost To make the force of the back stroke do its work in driving the locomotive is the idea of the Texas man, and he is sure enough of the success of his idea to secure patents on it. He connects what is technically called a bell crank lever With the driving rod and also with the forward driving wheel One arm of the lever is joined to the rod, the other to the wheel The forward stroke of the piston rod sends the arm connected with the driving wheel up, the back stroke brings it down, and as it comes down it does its part in driving the wheel onward. The Texas man claims for Ms invention also that it will tend to equalize the force of the propelling steam, so that there will not be the tremendous hammer blows of the wheels upon the rails that now wear them out in a comparatively short time. French is the language of diplomacy the world over, yet it is said there is only one person in the administration circles at Washington who can speak it with the members of the various diplomatic corps. That persou is Miss Morton, sister of the secretary of agriculture. This is a sufficient illustration of the disgraceful ignorance - of even educated Americans in tho linguistic field.
