Taking ? the Initiative.
There is a certain satisfaction in tak-
mg the enemy unawares on bis- own
v ground , in downing him with his own
sveapons. President Polk evidently
took comfort-in his method for miti
gating the hand shake , that curse of
the chief executive office , and he must
have chuckled when he wrote in his
liary the bit which is given in James
Schouler's "Historical Briefs : "
If a man surrendered his arm to be
shaken by one horizontally , by another
perpendicularly and by another with a
itrong grip , he could not fail to suffer
severely by it But If he would shake
and not be shaken , grip and not be
gripped , taking care always to squeeze
the hand of his adversary as hard as
the adversary squeezed him , he would
suffer no inconvenience by it. I can
generally anticipate a strong grip from
a strong man. I take advantage of
him by being quicker than he and seiz
ing him by the tips of his fingers. This
te stated playfully , but it is all true.

Apparently Inventors are , continually
endeavoring to combine in one articles
which were formerly made in several
distinct units. This
is particularly the
case in regard to
kitchen utensils. A
of this kind Is
shown in the illus

man has succeeded
in combining a
fork , a spoon , knife
and can opener. Atone

one end is the fork ,
at the other end the spoon , knife and
can opener. By thus combining these
four articles in one the economical
housewife can save expenses , obtaining
the four articles for the cost of one. It
aiso means less silverware to wash
the one combined utensil requiring less
cleaning than the four.
Put four tablespoonfuls of butter and
a cup of water together in a sauce
pan and place over a slo\\r fire. Have
already measured one cup of flour and.
as soon as the water and butter reach
the boiling point , add the flour all at
once and stir vigorously. When thor-
oughlj' mixed remove from the fire and
add four unbeaten eggs , beating the
mixture between the times that each
egg Is added. Drop by the spoonful on
buttered pans , having a space of one
and one-half inches between each puff.
Bake in a slow oven for half an hour.
When done and cool cut a slat in the
side of each puff and fill with sweet

cream four tablespoonfuls of powdered
sugar and one-half teaspoonful of va

slowly for an hour and a half. Cut
the giblets into pieces of regular size ,

No important developments appear to
detract from the underlying strength
which sustains confidence in the business
outlook. Weather conditions were mainly
favorable to operations and activity is
more evident in production aud distribu
tion. Leading retail lines find the gen
eral demand steadily expanding , indicat
ing that the purchasing power is undiminished -
ished , but there is some accumulation of
lightweight apparel , which needs a warm
wave to bring quick disposal. Wholesale
dealings now show the effect of the be
tween seasons period and current ship
ments dwindle , but forward buying for
fall and winter supplies compares favorably -
orably with a year ago , and road sales-
.cuen obtain orders making a substantial
aggregate in the principal staples.
Notwithstanding the late .spring and
other adverse factors , farm conditions in
both Illinois and Iowa never before were
more encouraging , and land and stock
values have advanced to the highest aver
age. Mercantile credits remain quite sat
isfactory and money works easier , while
trading defaults occasion little anxiety.
Failures reported in Chicago district
numbered 20 , against 17 last week and
23 a year ago. Dun's Review of Trade.
Cross currents in trade and crop con
ditions prevent generalization. There has
been a further slight improvement in
crop condition. This has made for a
more optimistic feeling as to ultimate
yields and future trade in the sections
enjoying even a small share of seasonable
weather , but the great majority of cities
and particularly those in the eastern half
of the country complain of continued slow
retail trade and collections. On the other
hand the reports as to fall trade are quite
satisfactory , a reflection possibly of the
fact that retail stocks of heavy goods
were well cleaned up last winter. Crop
uncertainties and the fact that reorder
business this spring has been practically
absent in many lines , however , induce
conservatism as to future ordering and
there is less disposition to embark freely
in future commitments until the situa
tion becomes clearer.

Price of Bread-stuffs Up.
The threatened shortage in the wheat
crop and the high price of that commod
ity are now reflected in the boost in the
price of flour , which has risen from $4.50
to $6 in the last month. If continued ,
this would necessitate a smaller loaf or a
: ent advance in price.

The revolver is of dubious service in
War. Its only function there Is as a
cavalry we'apon. Indeed , It Is an evolution
lution of the mediaeval purpose to pro
vide horse soldiers with a firearm. In
the cavalry the weapon is effective only
up to fifty yards. It has no value for
hunting. The average man can do
more execution on birds and beasts
with a slingshot The only purpose-
which the revolver serves Is to kilV
another man , and even for that pur
pose its usefulness is overestimated.

is "never done" and is it any wonder
that she breaks down at the end of a
