since it is discovered thai this increase
was almost entirely in articles re
quired by manufacturers whose busi
ness had been increased by the protec

for manufacturing were in the fiscal
year 1899 $31,876,342, against $17,558,-

were, in 1S99. $11,843,357, against $8,-

reduction in imports of material for
manufacturing was in wool, of which
the imports in the last year of the

of duty, were $53,243,191; In 1898, the

History will give the administration

war that followed it as an unwelcome
but unavoidable sequel.says the Globe

creased expenditure,has avoided a for

the expenses of the war were charged
up during the last fiscal year ending

S9,000,000, much less than any of the
estimates. This year's prospect ia that
the treasury will keep even, or nearly
so. K 3 venue is increasing and expen

little more now than on a peace foot

army in the Philippines is not yet
closely ascertained,butit will be noth
ing unusual except in the matter of
transporting troops. Manila is an ideal
base for convenience and securlty,and
campaigning in Luzon will be no more
expensive than elsewhere. Carrying
army supplies in ships is the cheapest
method known.

It Wu a Hut A ii 'I Dry Week Iu Most
ConntU-a of the State.
University of Nebraska, Lin
coln, Auj:. 2'. The p ist week has
been warm, with scattered showers in
the southeastern portion of the state.
The average dailj' excess of tempera
ture has been between three and four
degrees. The maximum temperatures
on the first days of the week ranged
from 90 to 104 degrees.
The rainfall of the week was very
light, except in small areas in Rich
ardson, Johnson, Saline, Nuckolls and
Franklin counties, where an inch or
more fell. Light, scattered showers oc
curred in thecentral and southeastern
counties, while in the northern and
western counties little or no rain fell.
The past week has been an excellent
one for haying. 6tncking and thrash
ing. Most of the small grain is now
either thrashed or in the st;ick. The
yield of wheat in the northern coun
ties is generally between ten and fif
teen bushels per acre. Hay is gener
ally a good crop. The dry weather,
with high temperature, hat been un
favorable for corn in most parts of the
state. In parts of the southeastern
section, where the moisture was suffi
cient, corn has advanced rapidly
toward maturity, without injuo1. In
other parts of the sta e it has de
teriorated somewhat in condition and
h:is ripened too rapidly. Good pro
gress has been made with plowing,and
a little seeuirjr has been done. The
ground was cetting1 too dry to plow
well in most sectious by the last of the
week .

Bancroft Gherardi, son of the rear ad

sence might have delayed the ceremony
but for a well-stocked wardrobe. Some
time ago Henry Butler, ensign on the
Olyrapla, of the Asiatic squadron, of
fered to buy goods for a wedding dress
for his sister In China. It was faith
fully awaited and expected, but failed
to arrive. A few days ago came the
explanation. The merchant from whom
the purchase was made, instead ot
sending tse dress to Paterson, forward
ed it to Ensign Butler, who was unable
to send it to Paterson until after It had
undergone on Admiral Dewey's flag
ship the experience of the great battle
of Manila bay. Thus it was American
