This la "whiskers' week," the season of
the year when the wise man "blocks out '

from ths rigors of a Chicago winter.
It is the saddest week in ths year for
the "tonsotial artists," as thousands of

an agreement with the confident expecta

by the result of the election and which was

The unimportant purt played by the minor

that th financial sentiment has read In
th sentiment of the elections a revulsion
of sentiment in the country frnm the spirit
of hostility to capital as It Is embodied In
the great corporations. Judge Taft's speech

four months, then returned It to New
York. On It arrival here It passed gov
ernment Inspection. Another piece of meat
from the same lot has hung two years In
a room where the temperature has never
been below 70. It Is sweet and wholesome
today. Other equally startling tests of the
electric process have been made suc
cessful. The process In it fundamental princi
ple is simplicity Itself. Th meat Is
placed in tank containing brine. Th
brine Is the same solution which Is used
In curing establishments everywhere.
Electric current are sent through the
tanks. They drive the salt Into and
through the meat much more quickly
and distribute It much more thoroughly
than Is possible under the old method, In
which the meat is merely allowed to
soak In the brine.
The originator of th process claim
for It that it is quicker, mora thorough
and more sanitary than th old method.
Even th most Up-to-date curing cel
lar have brine-covered floor and damp
walls. The process of curing take so
long and the' meat must b handled so
many times that perfsct sanitation Is Im
possible. The meat must be changed fre
quently from one hogshead to another,
from old brine to new. There I alway
mors or less seepage from leaking casks.
Th cellar are in layer, underground,
and are Invariably dark and often poorly
With the electric method the meat Is
handled but once when It goe Into th
brine and when It comes out, cured.
Therefore ther are fewer casks and less
seepage. Th brine can be used over and
over again Indefinitely, as It, too, has been
purified by electricity, and circulating
through a cooler vat outside returns to
In the matter of time consumed In cur
ing the originator make thes compari
sons; Under th old method ham I cured In
from seventy-two to 10$ day. Electric
ally cured It need stay In th brine but
from twenty-flv to thirty-five day.
Under tha old way bacon I cured In
twenty-two day. Electrically cured It
remain In th brine only four days.
Itemised, th claimed advantages of th
new method over th old ar: Takes one
fifth to one-third a long; doe It better;
save th packer from SO to 11 per cent
In labor In th curing room; eliminate
th cost of cooperage; reduce tha cost
of brine three-fourths; saves the packer
loss from "skippered" meat. Meat which
ha been electrically cured will not spoil,
for ther ar no Impurities left tn it

So much has been decided by the direc

the work have not yet been determined.
There are awaiting selection a number of
complete decorative schemes cf great

It Is wished to emphus!ie the fact that
suFgestton are still desired regarding this
imrxrtant part of the exposition.
The possibilities In the way of deccratlng

are fairly duxsllng. The mammoth stsge
offers a choice to the scenic artist for the
lovelleat of perspective effects and the

TIPS FOR OUTGOING HUNTERS
Plcasare, . Profit and Safety Con
densed Into Two Words,
The text of this brief sermon addressed
to all who propose going afield after game,
big or small, la this: Don't leave your
common sense at home when you set out
for the hunting ground. And as an open
ing remark, don't fall to 'cut thla article
out and take It with you.
For fear that you might not aee the
force of which opening, just listen to this:
The writer foregathered lately with a
gentleman from one of the large cities
who Is, by way of thinking, himself a fair
woodsman and is certainly reputed a hunter
Of class. He delivered himself as follows
apropos of the rudimentary principle of all
"Don't shoot until you know what you
are ahootlng at.
"I was up in north Minnesota deer hunt
ing last fall and got a lesson I won't soon
forget. Just learned how easily a ' man
who Is sure he knows better can do worse
and not half try. On my Way up I picked
up a copy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press
containing a reprinted article from the New
York Times which Interested me greatly,
though I never then dreamed that It was
to b tha means of averting a tragedy.
One rule It laid' down waa when in doubt
of the identity of anything looking like
deer, but to which as deer you could not
swear, to 'holler.'
"Now I thought that ahy fool ought to
know that, but mark what followed. I
secured quarters with a 'Winchester
farmer I knew and the morning after
reaching hia place set out by my lonesome.
He had told me that a moose or two
were loose and when I glimpsed the un
mistakable coat of the big moose through
some thick brush perhaps W0 yards from
where I era crossing a thick piece of tim
ber I threw my rifle to my shoulder and
drew a bead on Mr. Moose.
"But I did not pull the trigger. Into my
mind came the printed warning and al
though I was not In doubt a littl bit I
yelled. An answer cam back Instsntly
and a moment later my host stepped Into
view and cam toward me. And I sat
down on a log with lo water pouring out
of every pore" and a lot more going to
prove that an experienced hunter had left
hi common sense at home and but for
Qod' mercy and through no fault of his
own had escaped the guilt ot blood.
Take your common sens with you when
you go to hunt. It will teach you that
ther la no reaemblance between a man
and doer or bear and will fore you
when In doubt to "holler" and keep on
"hollering" until you get an answer or see
the suspicious object run.
Don't leav your common sense at home.
If you take it with you it will In
terfere and stop rvry tlm you start
to drag a gun out of or through any
thing by the barrel with the mussle point
ing atralgnt at your body or head. That
1 the method of suicide, self-mutilation, or
manslaughter most favored of gentlemen
users of th shotgun, although som do
either or all of tho acta In a similar man
ner with th rifle.
Use a hammerleas, do youT And so you
can drag your gun any old way and still
be safe, can you? Krlcrjd, there never WJ',
and ni-vi-r will be, any kind of loaded gun
that was or could be safe while Its muscle
was pointed at a human iH'Inar. Olv your
common sense half a chance and nobody
will need to tell you thai. If you are going
to leave anything at home give automatla
guns and whisky the preference, but take
your common sense along every time.
The killed and wounded during the oped
season for deer In the three states of Min
nesota. Wisconsin, and Michigan alone
wouldn't make a very bad second to the
performance of the railroads In that line
during the same length of time, and nine
out of ten of every deplorable happening
of them all happened because some man
went hunting and left his common sense at
Take your common sense with you. It
will teach you that under no circumstances
must you carry a loaded gun, particularly
a loaded rifle Into house or camp. It will
show you the criminal folly of shooting at
rabbits, squirrels, or birds with cartr'dje
from rifles which will propel a bullet two
miles, especially when the chances are
strongly In favor of your hitting anything
In tlio wide world except the' mark you
are aiming at. . ' n
It will call your attention to the fact that
you came out for a hunt and not a drunk,
and that the less liquor In the party the
better the party's chance of a pleasant
time and auccessful hunting. It will force
you to bear constantly in mind the fact
that you are not a "kid," and so rrsixn.il
ble for nothing, but a man who knows him
self responsible to Qod and man for his ac
tions, and who Intends to act- as one who
fully realties his responsibility.'
Now, beforo you forget it, cut- thl out,
take It with you, and read it over each
day while, you are out If you do, sir, com
mon sense will be of the partyand ths
most honored member thereof. Now York
