If English were a dead language de
ciphered from cuneiform Inscription some
learned philologist would write a paper
upon these metaphora, and would prove
that tha race which used them had suf
fered much at tho bands of Its cooks to
whose Incompetence Its early and com
plete extinction was no doubt dua. And
perhaps Juat about tha time that explor
ers ehumed and interpreted Voltaire's
gibe about a coon try with on aauce some
till mora learned philologist would put
forward a rival theory In a longer book.
He would begin by extolling tha Ideals
cf a people which immortalized in Its
common speech Ita preference for plain
food plainly cooked; and then he would
demonstrate that unnumbered namelcsa
TWUhmen must have plied knife and
fork In high seriousness for thousands of ',
years before evolving the national bill of
fare and tha Jaw of tha contemporaneous
JMltdown akult wkh coped with It "a Jaw
which !U. for In presence of two dis
tinctively human teth would certainly
bave been referred to a chlmpansee or
Bjerlll." There would be a lengthy digres
sion on the debased civilizations of Ger
many and Italy aa typified by sauerkraut
and bologna sausage, respectively, and of
India aa typified by Bombay duck; and
we should learn that aa the Greek bod
expressed himself In his templea and the
Frenchman In his prose, so the English
man had expressed himself In his roast
beef. (In the appendix there would be a
variorum edition of the ode, "Tha Itoaat
Iteef of Old Kngland.") Finally the au
thor would ask htmeelf how. the English
man, who in art generally snowed no
hent towarda the claaalcal, came to davlse !
the noble line of hla Christ mae dinner.
Here we must leave him; nor have we
space to dlsouss whether the English

cribed to the Englishwoman's Inability

brief but Interesting account of the patho

a sign of regurgitation in tho throa..

collupae of the red blood corpuscles, al
though no Chung cculd lie rten in the

ILoral trader Baying.
Ixcal traders continued heavy buyer
ot cash and December wheat and were
just a heavy sellers of May, They fig
ured out that there waa big money deal
ing In the actual grain and few of them
took any chance on speculation. For In
stance, If they bought 1.000 or more bush
el ot cash, or December wheat, they
old the same quantity of May.
The September option opened in Chicago
at S cents, which wa low for th day,
and went to MK. December atarted off
at which wa the low, and climbed
to 99?i, while May kept within a fluctua
tion of t cent. It opened at fl.OSVa. the
low price of the Saturday short session,
and went aa high a tl.OTH.
There are a lot of Omaha grain trader
ho are taking the cue from Armour
and whenever cash wheat sells around 85
cent here, or when December drop to
90 cent, or below, they buy. Then, when
the December option reached 11 or above,
or when the May passes $1.07, they sell.
They figure that the carrying charge. In

an Interesting light on the economic and
political condition that have followed In
tho wake of the constitutional's! armies
and indicate that the restoration of law
and order has followed fast after them.
"At Tamplco, the large business opera
tions," writes Mr. Browne, "were alowly
lesuming. The city was clean and or
derly. I did not aee a single drunken
or boisterous Mexican. The market place
waa filled with a profualon of food sup
plies .potatoes alone being scarce. Prlcea
were high In constitutionalist money, but
moderate In American money. Retail
business wa brisk. I did not see a single
beggar In Tamplco.
"Governor Caballero, I watched in his
office and waa struck with hla grasp
of, business detail and the rapidity with
which he dispatched business. The whole
state and municipal machinery moved
with little friction and an absence of
led tape. :
"Train service to Monterey wa poor.
The rolling stock 1 in bad hape front
the ravage of a fierce military cam
paign. Along the rout I was struck with
the absence of signs of aerioua distress
mong the common people such aa I
witnessed in Cuba just-prior to the Span
ish war. Everyone has had enough to
eat. There was no gathering of half
starved, emaciated beggers.
"A a matter of fact, throughout all
upper Mexico the peona have been prac
tically free from paying rent to their
former oppressive landlord for the last
year and are enjoying a consequent in
dividual prosperity to which the war ha
hardly given a blow. Not being handi
capped by a highly specialised Industrial
syatem they flow back to the land at the
"Monterey, a much larger city than
Tamplco, wa equally a ordorly. Big
butlneas there waa none. The large
banks were closed; business of all kind
waa alaok, but the town wa a clean a

a profusion of food.
