So far as tho most soarchlng inquiries
go, it appears that only two women
wear bloomors on bicycles In Washing
ton. Tho men who nro apt to know
about such things report but two women
who havo so far braved tho eyes of tho

Emily Soldeno, who will be remem
bered as an exponent of English blondo
burlesque nnd of comic opera years
ago, has been heard from again In an
interview. She hns no uso for tho new
woman, but wants "the old-fashioned
woman, who Is sweet and gentle." The
bloomer sho regards as tho most
hideous garment of the day, and how a
pretty woman can destroy her charms
by wearing bloomors sho cannot see.
Emily, It will bo recalled, did not wear
much of anything, except the patience
of her nudlonccs.

Tho lessons of history teach us that
the Chinese can only be brought to
terms by a show of force. Their word
Is lightly given and lightly broken.
They promised to Investigate the mur

commission to seo to It that the Inquiry

Left to tho Chinese prefect and 'his
auxiliaries, the Investigation will bo as
farcical as Its predecessors. A pretense
of punishing the criminals will be made
nnd tho agents of tho empire at Wash
ington nnd tho European capitals will
be commissioned to deceive the offended
countrymen of the victims. Tho
course of Sir Halljday Macartney, coun
cillor of tho Chinese legation at Lon
don, Is proof enough that only ocular
demonstration Is reliable In dealing
with Chinese envoys or their Caucasian
mouthpieces. The lncautlousness of the
missionaries in Invading China Is not
a plea In abatement. They nre Amer

tho flag whenovor and wherever found.

- This community, says aFullerton dis
patch, is greatly excited over a case of
revolting cruelty brought to light by
Sheriff Snyder. For sovernl years it
hns been known that a family named
Knapik, in tho Polish colony, hud an
idiotic boy, and lately reports of their
ill treatment of tho unfortunate one
hnve been circulated. Investigation by
the sheriff developed that the boy, who
is also partially paralyzed, has been
kept picketed out like a domestic ani
mal in an out of the way place during
tho day and at night kept in a stable
with tho calves and other live stock.
It was also ascertained that he was un
provided with clothing of any kind
during tho summer months, but was al
lowed to go in a state of absolute nudi
ty. The unfortunato boy wns tuken
charge of by tho authorities and his
parents will bo prosecuted.
Antelope' Alfalfa Crop.
Among the Nebraska counties which
havo become interested in tho raising
of alfalfa is Antelope. For several
years more or less of it has been raised,
principally in small patches and more
as an experiment than as a practical
food supply for stoclc 'l he results ot
these experiments were so fnvorablo
that the raising of it on a more ex
tensive scalo has been entered upon.
Last season was a most trying one on
grasses and tho tame meadows of tho
ordinary grasses either died entirely
during the summer nnd winter or were
so badly damaged that they wore, of
very littlo use for hay purposes this
season. Alfalfu, on tho contrary, sus
tained very little, if any damage, and
this year has been a bountiful crop.
Notable as showing the possibilities of
tho grass is the r-sult obtained by
Huffman & Rollins on their ranch in
tho Elkhoru bottoms. From land which
wns seeded this spring they have al
ready cut ono hay crop which averaged
a ton, and tliefo is another cutting
rcrfdy which will yield fully as much
more. Utncrs wnose lana was secueu
in previous years hnvo already cut two
crops and will get a third beforo tho
season is over.

Nkw Yoiik, Sept. 10. R. G. Dun &
Co's trade review says: A slight set
back, which may mean much or noth
ing, according to the final outcome of
the crops, is not unexpected at this
season. If tho government crop re
ports wero correct the situation would
not be encouraging. Hut not much
confidence is placed in the reduced
estimate of corn, nono nt all in the
estimate of wheat, and even the most
enthusiastic bulls do not think it
worth while to quote the government
report as to cotton.
The fact Is that we nro beginning to
market not far from 2,200,000,00(1
buhels of corn though about 500,000,-
000 bushels will be moved from the
counties where it is grown; about
110,000,000 bushels of wheat, of which
tho farmers arc very unwisoly holding
back a largo proportion, nnd about
7.200,000 bales of cotton, if the latter
Indications are not erroneous, as they
inuybe, to add to the stocks carried
Tho wheat crop is evidently larger
than the department has estimated,
though nobody knows how much
larger, and is coining forward with
mora encouraging rapidity, no less
than 5,773.173 bushels having been re
ceived at Western ports against 5,-MO,-
001 bushels for tho same week last
year from a much larger crop. Tho
farmers have undoubtedly been keep
ing back wheat under ail agreement
among themselves. It does not seem
a profitable operation for them. Ex
ports from tho Atlantic ports for the
two weeks of September have been
2,417,872 bmhols (flour included)
against 5,310,020 bushels last year.
The price declined sharply, about 2
cents per bushol, with little indication
of recovery. The price of corn lias
alio yielded with a strong prospect of
the largest crop overgrown, and at 38
cents at New York a largo proportion
of tho crop will bo of littlo profit to
