OLD RATES TO BE RESTORED
Schedules on Dreed Beef and Live Stock
Readjusted bj Traffic Men.
FIVE CENT ADVANCE ON BOTH CLASSES
Action of Western EeentlTe Officials
Settles l.ona Controversy Over
Shipments from Missouri
River to Chicago.
CHICAGO. May 6 Freight rates on
dressed beef and live beeves from Mis
souri river points are to be restored after
July 1 to what they were prior to June
30, ISmH. This will mean aa advance on
each class of freight of about 5 cents.
The meeting of the executive officers of
the western roads here today had the
matter under consideration and the result
was the agreement to restore former
charges. The trouble over the rates on
beef from the Missouri river to Chicago
and the seaboard has been one of long
standing. The restoration will affect the
livestock shipped to the Chicago atock
yards from the ranges west of the river,
also the products of the packing bouses
situated on the river.
The published tariff now In effect makes
the rate on packing house products from
the Missouri river to Chicago 23 Vi cents.
The Chicago rate was 184 cents, and this
last became the published tariff rate after
the inquiry of the Interstate Commerce
commission into alleged discriminations
last February. '
The rates tor live beeves, both for
through shipment from Missouri river
points and for shipment from the river to
Chicago, are to be made the same as the
rates for the dressed beef, so that while
the local livestock exchange will be bene
fited, the roads will be benefited more.
RATE FOR EXPORT FLOUR
Transportation Charges to Be Made
the Same aa for
CHICAGO. May 6. The Chicago. Mil
waukee St. Paul road has plsced export
flour on a level with wheat In the matter of
This action, according to the Record
Herald, which makes the announcement,
will be followed by other western lines
with similar rates, and means a saving of
millions to the millers of the northwest.
For years the millers have vigorously
contended that If the rates were made the
same on wheat and flour grain would not
be taken from the United States, but would
be made Into flour here and then shipped
for export. Strong appeals for relief have
recently been made to President Roosevelt
direct, to the congressional committees and
to the Interstate Commerce eommlsaion.
The rate from St. Paul and Minneapolis,
both on flour and export grain. Is now 20 V4
cents, formerly It was 23 cents on flour.
The rate ot 20 cents applies to part lake
and part rail shipments. From St. Paul
the rate on flour for export by all-rail Is
25 cents and on grain 15V4 cents.

Mabel Li has been the envy of local horse

of the expenses up to the .first race.
After that Mr. Malley was to pay
the charges out of. the mare's win

divided. The agreement covered elx meets
In Iowa and Nebraska, but after the races
were over Malley proceeded to take In the

animal were fruitless. Then the mare was

Harte lorth American Re
view Klgnty Yeern Old.
"The Kentons" Is a new novel written by
W. D. Howells and published by Harpers.
This is one of the most delightful novels
the author has vet written. The scenes are
in the middle west. New York and on the
continent. It Is the story of the first love
affair ot a young American girl and the con
fusion which it creates In her family. Ken
ton la an attorney, somewhere in the SO.
but on his election to the bench had turned
his practice ove - to his son and after his re
tirement did not take It up. His time was
spent In the library and wife's room, leav
ing "the parlors and plaxzas to their girls
where they could hear them laughing with
their young fellows." Their opposition to
one of the young men paying attention to
their daughter Ellen leads to their going
to New York with her, and that not being
far enough away, proceed farther, new com
plications arising all the time, the troubles
being du,e to some extent to a hysterical
daughter. Ths heartaches to the judge at
having to stay away from his own home,
to which he Is very devoted, forms an Inter
esting pait. The horse-whipping of the op
posed suitor by Ellen's brother brings mis
givings. The series of excitements through
which he takes the heroine completely up
sets the quiet Kenton family.
"David Everton" is a romance of a vol
unteer regular In the Philippines, by Israel
Putnam. This is fiction with so well
conceived snd so consistently elaborated a
plot that the narrative alone will catch the
Interest of the most blase novel reader.
The motif of the story Is the old one of
love's sacrifice, but the order of heroism
displayed is peculiarly modern and far ex
alted above the conventional. Everton haa
finished the time for his enlistment when
be receives a letter from his rich father,
telling ot his embesxlement of some ft.nds
left in his hsnds aa a trustee for a young
woman whom Everton, unknown to hla
father, had proposed to, but who rejected
him. His father asks hie assistance,
and In order to cover up his father's crime,
he marries one of the native girls far below
him socially. In the meantime the young
woman whom he was in love with has dis
covered after his rejection her love for
Everton. and visits the Philippines In the
hope of finding him, which she succeeds in
doing and the result of which we leave to
the reader. His characters are drawn from
real life and that the "strenuous" exist
ence of military service, and the matters
Incidentally discussed are the most momen
tous with which the American government
Is concerned The problems are such as
self-government for the Philippines, social
relatione of Americana and natives, the can
teen question, the censorship of the press,
etc. The story tells and shows how Amer
ican management ot the plantations would
benefit the owners. The author speaks
through his characters with a confidence
which is bssed on experience, for he has
served both as a soldier and a journalist
In our eastern possessions. Published by

titles aloue are ruggestlve and attractive.
"None But the Brave," by Hamblen Sears,
s an Interesting tale of adventure and a
charming story of love turning upon the
attftmpt to capture Benedict Arnold after
be has betrayed his country and escaped
to the enemy, then In possession ot New
York City. It opens with the rescue of the
heroine by means of a forced marriage and
after many exciting episodes closes with a
voluntary repetition of the ceremony. In
the working out of the plot eoclal life In
New York under the British contrasts viv
idly with the horrors endured by American
prisoners in the old Sugar House prison.
While the author was a student at Harvard

the staff of the Crimson. He relatea that he
had a vision when he waa two and a half
days old that literature was his forte, but

D. Appleton Co. have published a new
and timely book by Dr. James K. Hosmer,
entitled "The History ot the Louisisaa
Purchase." His story of the purchase of
Louisiana, from the inception of French in
fluence on this continent to the present de
velopment of the great atates built up
within the confines ot the original purchase,
forms a most picturesque and striking nar
rative. He treats the chsnges In the own
ership of ths territory from France to
Spain, and again to France, and he develops
fully the purposes and acts of Jefferson
and the American commissioners In Paris.
There baa been no account ot the Louisiana

to the Indian strains in his nature. Ths
