The making of collections of posters
Is not a new idea. Balzac, forty years
ago, wrote in "Scenes from Parisian
Life"; "You, who can drink no longer
from the chalice called through all time
the 'cup of pleasure, take up the task
of collecting something, no matter what.
(People have ere now collected hand
bills), and you will recover your
ingots of joy in small change. A hobby,
a mania, is pleasure transformed into
the shape of an idea."

has saved $1,500. There are lots of men
who are willing to marry any woman
who has demonstrated that she could
make a good living for them.
From Avon Park, Fla., comes an or
iginal idea for ending dull times. The
editor of its weekly Idea, quoting the
magical phrase of 1878, "The way to re
sume is to resume," asks his readers,
and through them the whole country, to
unite on a "Revival Day," say August
31, by which time let those with Idle
money decide into which of the many
promising channels they shall "turn it
loose." Let every dollar possible on
this day be put into circulation; see how
many debts can be paid; how many new
enterprises started, and how much
business consummated. The impetus
thus given, he believes, will put an end
to hard times.

Hastings is making extensive prepar
ations for the reunion which takes
place there on the 26th, 27th, 28th,
20th, 30th and 31st of August. It is
argued that big crops in Nebraska,
Kansas and Iowa will be the signal for
a big crowd, and so Hastings is going
to work to prepare for their entertain
ment. You are invited to lay aside"
your business and come and hitch up
and join the procession. In the lan
guage of a circular issued to all man
kind, A weeks recreation will make a
new man of you. Your neighbors will
all be there and they will want to see
you. There will be balloon ascensions
every day and fireworks on three even
ings. There will be four big reunions
all held at the same time. The Ne
braska G. A. R.; the, lyansas-Nebraska
Interstate G. A. It. reunion; the Ne
braska Band Union reunion and the
Nebraska National Guards Encamp
ment. There will be free wood, free
hay, free straw and no limit to the sup
ply of good pure, fresh water, and
Hastings will have food on hand to feed
75,000 people three times a day, if that
many apply. Enjoy the fun and the
freedom which the boys won by their
valor on the field of battle.
The Russian Thistle Law.
The question of enforcing the provis
ions of the Russian thistle law in west
ern counties, says a Sidney dispatch, is
fast becoming one of considerable im
portance. There are many hundred
thousand acres of vacant government
land and educational lands in these
western counties and. as the Russian
thistle law makes no provision for the
destruction of the thistles on such lands,
there seems no way to meet the emer
gency of the case. Several of the west
ern counties have practically abandon
ed the destruction of this pest and there
seems to be no way out of theditliculty
unless the general government comes
to the rescue. The literal compliance
with the provisions of the law means
bankruptcy to all the western counties.

THE NAVY DEPARTMENT RECEIVES
ADVICES FROM CHINA.
DETROIT GOES TO CHE FOO.
As That Place Is Further From the Seen
of the Riots Than Shanghai, Wash
ington Officials Ilelleve That the
Attacks on American Mission
aries Are Ended Infor
mation Called For.
Washington, Aug. 12. A telegram
was received at the navy department
to-day announcing that Commander
Newell had sailed with the Detroit
from Shanghai to Che Foo. This latter
port is further fiom the scene of the
riots than Shanghai, and the navy offi
cials take. this as indicating that the
United States authorities in China do
not fear further outbreaks, especially
in the reg'on near Shanghai.
Upon receipt of the telegram, As
sistant Secretary McAdoo telegraphed
to Admiral Carpenter, -advising him
that there was a great deal of appre
hension here that American citizens in
China might lose their lives and prop
erty, and telling hira that every pos
sible effort should be made to protect
American citizens. He also asked the
admiral to cable him at once the real
situation, and whether there was dan
ger of further disturbances. Admiral
Carpenter.with the flagship Baltimore,
is at Nagasaki, Japan, which is about
400 miles from Shanghai across the
Japan sea, but there is no doubt that
he is well informed as to the situation.
NATURAL GAS OF AMERICA.
The Supply Found in Many Sections, bat
Steadily Decreasing- In Amount.
Washington, Aug. 12. The natural
gas industry is fully revieweil in the
annual report of the geological survey.
The most important gas fields now are
those of Western Pennsylvania, West
ern New York, Northwestern Ohio and
Central Indiana, but gas has been found
in commercial quantities also in Arkan
sas, California, Illinois, Kansas, Ken
tucky, Louisiana, Missouri, South
Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West
Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
The highest actually observed pres
sure has been about 300 pounds to the
square inch, closed pressure. In all
districts the pressure has increased
steadily and materially. Heretofore
natural gas could be easily carried in
pipes for long distances under its own
pressure, but now in most places arti
ficial means must be used to drive it to
the place where it is needed. No
statement of the amount of natural
gas consumed has ever been given and
the report says it is not possible to
make one. The amount has been
greatly reduced within the last few
years by the cutting off of the enor
mous waste that existed, while im
proved appliances have doubled the
efficiency of what is used. The total
value of that consumed in lo94 was
nearly $14,000,000. This is a steady
decrease from 188S, when the value

SILVER AT 16 TO 1-
Missouri Democrats In Sta
Pertle Springs, Ma, Aug. 8. The
Missouri Democracy has declared with
out equivocation for the free and un
limited coinage of silver at the ratio of
16 to 1. The strongest resolutions
looking to that end were passed by the
state convention amid a storm of
cheers, and practically without a dis
senting voice. Further yet, the con
vention, by an overwhelming major
ity, voted to reorganize the state com
mittee, and nineteen new -members
have been added to it, all considered
to be heart and soul for the
white metal. The fifteen old
members whom, whether right
ly or wrongly the silver men
had considered committed to the sound
money doctrine, 13 to 2, now finds
itself purely an ornamental appen
dage to a soaring majority. There
are rumors that possibly thirteen of
the old committee will decline to
serve longer, but it is scarcely likely
that they will resign, as that action
would merely fix the silver men still
more firmly in the saddle. In spite of
these revolutionary proceedings the
work of the convention has been char
acterized by most remarkable har
mony. If the convention faithfully
represents the Democratic party of
the state, then beyond question 75 per
cent of the party are out and out silver
The convention began its business
with "Silver Dick" Bland at the helm.
The organization was perfected with
out friction and silver resolutions were
drawn and adopted and the reorgani
zation of the state central committee
was decided upon by a vote of 493 to
63. The plan of reorganization agreed
upon was that suggested by the con
servatives, which called for the doub
ling of the old committee, only four
additional committeemen elected from
the state at large by the convention
were added. This makes the new com
mittee certainly for silver, but as if
this were not enough, the convention
went further and so bound the new
central organization by resolutions as
to the conventions to be held next
year, that even were it as hostile as
possible to the white metal, its hostil
ity would be futile.
In the evening the convention sent
greetings to the Democratic state con
ventions in session in Mississippi and
Iowa, exhorting them to stand firmly
for free silver and 16 to 1. It also sent
a personal tribute to Senator Joe
Blackburn of Kentucky complimenting
him on his fight for silver against over

Che Pennsylvania Senator Scores His
Enemies In a Public Statement.
Philadelphia, Aug. 8. Senator
Quay has issued a formal statement in
reply to the charge that he had pro
posed to David Martin, the Republican
leader of this city, a bargain looking
to the cessation of hostilities between
them in the contest for chairman of
the state Republican committee. The
statement follows: "I have not met
Mr. Martin nor anv member of the
combine since the present contest was
begun, nor have I made nor received
from anybody propositions looking to
an adjustment. So far as the mnni
tipal rings of Philadelphia and Pitts
burg are concerned, there will not nor
eannot be any adjustment. My friends
are those of the party who have al
ways been willing to carry the Repub
lican flag under fire and stand by the
ticket nominated whether it is of their
making or not. I regard my election
s positively assured."
