The United States navy has too many
officers and too few enlisted men. Nearly -
ly every class of cadets that is graduated -
ed from the naval academy at Annapolis -
lis provides a supply of young officers
In excess of the available vacancies ,
and in spite of the most skillful maneil-
vering some of the cadets in each class
fail to secure commissions and are discharged -
charged , although well qualified for the
service. The surplus of officers is one
of the legacies of the civil war , during
the course of which several classes of
unusual size were rushed through the
naval academy in order to meet the
necessities of the times.

Lord Selborne ; two brothers , Arthur

A Michigan dispatch says : "A new
species of grip has appeared in Shia-
wassee county , locally known as
"Trilby. " Its symptoms and varied accompaniments -
companiments are severe pain in one or
both sides , sore throat , headache , high
temperature , and difficulty in breathing.
It is no respecter of persons , but seizes
old and young , prostrating them usually
within a fen moments from the first indications -
dications of illness. There are 500 cases
of "Trilby" in Owosso , and similar re-
podts come from Bancroft , Morris ,
Perry , and other parts of the country.
As yet , however , no deaths have been
reported.o This all comes from Du
Maurier's hypnotized maiden having
posed in her bare feet and left off her

"A milkman at a fair made 50 rupees
by selling milk which was largely Wa-
ter. Grateful for his prosperity , he
made an offering to the shrine and set
about washing away his sins by bathing -
ing in the river , though it does not appear -
pear that he reckoned the adulteration
of milk among them. He laid aside his
garments , in which were the 50 rupees ,
and proceeded to his bath , when a monkey -
key seized the garment and climbed to
the topmost branch of a tree overhanging -
ing the water. To the horror of the
bather he saw the beast take out the
-silver pieces and drop them , one by
one , into the swift-flowing stream.
There was nothing to be done but to
bear his loss , ; but mindful of how the
money was obtained the man piously

Edward Eggleston originated the
Christian Endeavor Society in his popular -

bous' : in Schermerhorn street , Brook-
lyn. It is in this fiction also that may
be found "The Church of the Good
Licks. " In 1S77 , when Mr. Eggleston
became the pastor of the Lee Avenue
Congregational Church ( now the Lee
Avenue Theater ) , he organized for the
3'oung people a Society of Christian Endeavor -
deavor , in imitation of the one in his
book. The weekly meetings in the
church drew together such a company
of bright young men and women as that
town never witnessed in similar gatherings -
erings before or since. All the professions -
fessions were represented ; and the object -
ject was chiefly social culture. It was
from the success of this small company
In making one evening in the week
agreeable and profitable that the great
gathering in Boston has come to pass.

The Executive Board of the Royal
Arcanum of Omaha , South Omaha and
Council Bluffs have jointly arranged
for the establishment of Royal Arca-
num headquarters at the Nebraska
State fair , to be held in Omaha in Sep-
tember. It is their wish and desire

num who visits the fair , together with
their family and friends , will call at
the headquarters and make himself
known. It is proposed to extend a
"Royal" welcome to all. Special committees -
mittees have been appointed , whose
duty and pleasure it will be to furnish
information to visiting brethren , and
in every possible way contribute to
their comfort and enjoyment. It is
proposed also to do some secret work ,
providing a sufficient number of visit-

Many of the residents of PTattsmoutl ,
are more than interested in the announcement -
nouncement that William Foxwell , t
whose family resides there , had won
his title to the famous Harris-Hartley

the vast estates. Mr. Foxwell went to r
England last November to look after
the Foxwell interests. Ile has just forwarded - j
warded the following cablegram to his

The estate is valued at over $2,000-
000 and Foxwell's income from

CInCAGo , Aug.George W. IIow-
ard , vice president of the American
'Railway union. ( luring the great strike
last year , who was sent to jail by
United States Judge Woods for eon-
tempt of court in violating injunctions
preventing the order from interfering
with trains during the strike , was released -
leased yesterday from the Joliet jail
and came here at once. Regarding
the future of the order , he said : "The
American Railway union is a thing of
the past. The efforts to reorganize
it , I am sure , will never succeedd.
Every railroad official has received
notice from some of the
other railroad organizations that he
will allow the : American Railway union
to raise its head with peril. Only last
week a railroad man at Joliet was discharged -
charged because it was rumored that
he had belonged to the American Railway -
way union. In regard to the order of
Master Workman Sovereign of the
Knights of Labor , which requests laboring -
boring men to refuse bank notes in
payment of obligations , I think it is
the sheerest nonsense , the worst kind
of bombast , and ninety per cent of the
working people of the country will
look upon it in that light. The people
need money in any shape and I predict
that the order will be ignored. "
Delis was visited by his wife and sis-
ter. He declares that he has much
work to do answering letters and looking -
ing after the order. He says : "What
we intend to do is to build up the
American Eaivay union and make it
the strongest organization in the
country. There are SSO,000 railroad
men in the country , and I know that
seven-eighths of them are with us.
But they do not speak their minds , attend -
tend meetings or join the union for
fear of the blacklist. The General
Managers' association has declared
that no man who took part in the
strike or who joins our union can work
in this country and it passes
the blacklist arouni , although
there are a few laws against conspiracy -
spiracy , which , it seems , are intended
only for labor unions , not managers'
unions. We are going to get around
the blacklist simply by having a secret
union. There will lie no public meet-
ings. No one will know who joins it
and the man who denounces it to the
company's agents may be a director.
By January 1 we will have agencies in
all the principal cities of the union.
Burns will work in Chicago. Good-
win is going to Winona. and from
there he will work to the \Vest. Keller -

Rogers is going to Puebio , Col. , Rogan
to Ogden , Utah , ahud Elliott will work
in the East. It is a gigantic task , but
with the help f our friends we will
succeed. Each district supervisor will
have a lot of assistants who will go to
the homes of the men who desre to
join and there enlist them in the
union. It is the only way to overcome -
come the system of espionage under
which we constantly work. As soon
as 1 get out I will go to Terre Haute
and I expect it will take me a month
or more to straighten up affairs in the
business office of the union. About
Janua.y 1 1 will start on a tour of the

West-Wiclhita s Qucer Experience.
CHICAGO , Aug. 2i.-Reports of Friday
night's rain show that it extended
over a wide area. Though it had its
origin in this part of the country , it
extended its cooling influences allover
the southwestern section of the country -
try , even the allcccUi deserts of New
Uexico and a coiner of Arizoia were
sprinkled more liberally than fornear
y a quarter of a century. Colorado , ;
iebraska , the Dakotas. a section of

of Kansas received the grateful downI I 1
pour. I t
In Wichita , Kan. , there was a thunder -

This is common in parts of California f
sad in the mountains of Idaho , but it

TRADE REVIEW. '
Rusitiess Shrlnks a Little on'Account of
Ml ] summer Dullness.
NEW Yoiu , Aug. 26.-R. G. Dun , C
Co.'s weekly review of trade says :
The volume of business shrinks , as is
natural in August , and the shrinkage
seems rather larger than usual , because -
cause transactions in July were somewhat -
what inflated for that month. Some
industries are doing more than ever
before in August , and the prospect for
fall trade is good in others , although
much depends on the crops , and the
outcome is less clear than the speculators -
tors on either side are disposed to ad-
mit. Industrial troubles have not entirely -
tirely ceased , but ( luring the past week
have become much less threatening.
The price of wheat has fallen 3 %
cents during the week , recovering a
fraction on Thursday , in spite of all
efforts to hold back supplies from
farms and to encourage buying.
Wheat ought to go abroad freely at
present prices , but Atlantic exports ,
flour included , have been only 1,352-
60" bushels for the week , against
2,69.4 , 704 last year , and for four weeks
only 4,345,632 bushels , against 10,037-
447 last year.
Impressive stories of short crops
abroad have little weight in the presence -
ence of such a record , and the abstention -
tion of foreign purchases proves more
effective than the withholding of
wheat by western farmers. Naturally -
ally the fifty-seven cent wheat of the
Pacific coast still goes forward freely
in place of the Atlantic supplies.
Corn has also declined four and one-
half cents , while pork and lard , with
accustomed inconsistency , rise a shade
as corn declines.

On the east side of these sand hills a.
wagon road comes in from the north ,
angling westward. Here is a level
stretch of road and was the scene of n.
bold train robbery. Two men boarded
the train at Brady , going forward over
the tender after the train was in motion - '
tion , and with revolvers drawn they
held up the fireman and engineer , corn- '
pelling time latter , at the point of a re- 3 i '
volver , to go back to the baggage car , ; ,
open the door and let them in , which
he did by informing the baggage man f , jd
that they were held up and that the- I Ia
robber had a sun at his head. Upon i
getting into the car the expressman I ' ;
was compelled to open the smaller safe. a
He could not open the larger one , and i
the robbers proceeded to blow the top ,
of it out with dynamite. In the meantime -
time the fireman managed to to give '
the robbers the slip , and goingforward 3
he uncoupled the engine from the train i4
and made the run to Gothenburg to
secure a posse of men to help capture
the bandits. In a short time twenty r'
volunteers were enroute to the scene of 1
the robbery , but before they arrived
the men had disappeared.
'rhe bandits wore black slouch hats ,
withh black silk handkerchiefs for
noels. ' [ 'hey were about fire fret yen
in height and would weight 150 pounds f
each. 'T'hey were roughly dressed and .
tuned their voices to disguise the tore. '
They rode horses and evidently came
in from the hills. The windows were
all blown out of the baggage car by i
the explosion of the dynamite and it
seems that the bandits were experts in
using the explosive. l
"Vhen the dynamite explodel the ' -
passengers were considerably excited , I 1 '
but were not molested.
The section foreman \'rornan has ,
seen men around the place of the robbery -
bery for several days and has a good
description of them.
Superintendent W. L. Parke and
Cheriff Miller of North Platte went to i f
the scene of the robber y in a special
car , with a posse of men. Early iit the
morning men were seutoutfrom North I
Platte and Brady and every effort is I
being made to capture the robbers before -
fore they get out of the country. f Ii
Superintendent Sutherland of Omaha '
went out on No. 7 , and will take charge '
the situation. r r
