A SI, 000 BMJ. MISSING.

There wis an abundance of hand
shaking nd a superabundance of glad

Bank Thursday morning over tlx? re
covery of a $1,000 hill which myeiori
jufily disappeared the afternoon before.
When the bank officers came to strike
their balance at the closing hour they
found that for some reason or other
the two aides of their account would
not agree by Just $1,000. They then
polished up their (spectacles carefully,
arranged their ink and pens and went
over the long columns of figure for a
second time. Wtien the operation wan
completed the balance was no nearer
correct than it was the first time.
The third Journey over the figures
consumed about twice as much time
as had both the others, but It was no
more successful than they had been.
Whou the third trip had been com
pleted it was time for dinner, but none
of the bank officers or clerks felt at all
hungry, and then, besides, they all had
other things to du.
'They spent the dinner hour In com
paring nole,aud trying to think up all
the transactions made in the course of
the day's business. In spite of the fad
that on account of the cold they were
Inclined to bo a little shivery, they
were fairly successful so far as ufero
ory transaction went. Rut for all their
memory feats they could not. determine
where the mining money had gone.
- From the fad that just an even $1,
000 was missing, the Officers decide !
that some mistake lyid been made in
the handling of a S1.000 bill. A scare!)
waa made of all the books to see
whether the bill might possibly have
fallen between two page. Then the
floor was swept, and after this all the
men shook out their coats and inspect
ed the ceiling.
John I'. Dees, the receiving 'teller,
bad gone home several hours before
the closing time, so he could not a id
bis knowledge to the consultation, bu'
it was decided at last that a certain
customer" must have handed in a slip
for $l,(ifl) more than the cash he depos
ited. The assistant teller said that he
would go to see this customer, and all
tho men were getting ready .to go Iume
at i) o'clock when the janitor, who had
been poking around underneath the
lesks, aiding Ids search with the light
from a match, made a wild grab at
something he saw 'ticking out from be
hind a pile of books, and arose with the
uilsxlng bill in Ids band.
A gust of wind had evidently lifted

The Children's Bleep.
A physician in a a addrexs before a
woman'! club on the care of children's
health, recently said that it Is criminal
to attempt to save a little money by
not giving every child in the family a
bed to himself. The plnsiiian also
emphasized the need of early sleep.
"It is so easy." he said, "to let a ner
vous child liise sleep In the early even
ing, when hi: or she hould be hard at
it, When a physician prescribes otne
imjwrtant remedy that miLst be taketi
and which is not pleasant, a mother
feels that it Is time well extended to
ciKijt and wheedle, and even bribe the
little one to swallow It. Spend just a
much thought and effort In getting your
child to sleep every nidit, if he does
not fall off his chair at the evening
meal from drowsiness, as the normal
hild should. (Jive up concerts, thea
ters, parties, anything till you have
secured for the nervous, twitching boy
or girl the benign habit of sleep. Coax
lilm to his room, give him a ijnlek
sponge Iwith, tuck him In IiIh single bed,
with a light wool blanket over him be
sides the sheet, and iu a lowered light
sit by him and talk to him till he Is
quieted. Tell hhn gentle, Hoothing
stories, nothing to excite his Imagina
tion, and when he Is .finally asleep,
have the room cool, dark and quiet.
Don't let hlni try to sleep in a room
which has been a sitting room all tin;
evening, without having It thoroughly
refilled with fresh outdoor air, which
may be accomplished by throwing win
dows wide open for fifteen minutes."
"You Jiy," remarked the debouaire
debtor, "that 1 am owing more money

"Yes, sir," replied the collector.

ern roads are openly advocating a re
dufl ion in passenger ratei to what they
term an "emergency bteis." The rea-i
son they give for their wish to cut the
rates is that the passenger bucirie's
dead ami tiiateome measures are needed
to Increase the volume of tiatlic. The
opponents of lower fares say that if the
rates are reduced there may be some
trouble, in view of the recent supreme
court decision, in getting the rates back'
to their old ba-iis again without taking
fonie action that would bo illegal. They
t'dnk. also, that it would be most un

of the lower rates have no argument to
off'r save that in their opinion thtf cheap
fares will Bir up traffic and that if it
once begins to move it will keep rnov
ng, after the rates have been restored
totheirold level. There ia no chance
of a concerted reduction in rates, but
as long as there is a Ptrong element
which favors the reduction of the rates
a genera! feelini of inse.urity will pre
vail among the roads.
The general committee of the passen
ger acrents of the western roads, which
has for two weeks been working on the
new agreement for the association, has
finished its work. The agreement is
radically the same as the wgreement,
w ith the exception ihat it contains no
provision regaiding the maintenance of
rates. There is no doubt that it will
be adopted by the executive officers
practically aa it stands. Some minor
c ianaes may bo made, but the agrea
ment will be put into operation just

' There exists a feeling of great cordiality

priceless benefit to all concerned. The
policy of the cabinet at Washington is
now firm and energetic in compelling
Americans to obterve neutrality in
Cuban affairs. Spain, on her side, ac
cedes to all the claims made in friendly
notes regarding American citizens and
has thus nullified in the United States
the propaganay of the anti-Spanish and
the American government has quieted
the violence of the press and the sen
ate." The Union Constitutional also treats
the subject editorially in the same tone,
and adds :
"An offer of J'iendly intervention

ment cannot be ill-considered. Yet the
