Packers were a very bearish bunch to
day, and whila auppptlaa were only fair,
prices dropped sharply la sympathy with
breaks elsewhere. Shipper buyers bought
an odd load ar two of choice lights and
butchers real early that wara fully steady,
paying a top of 19.11, which equals the high
mark of the week, but most of tha hogs
they bought were quite a lit tie lower.
Something like tea ar eleven oars wera
carried ever from yesterday, part of thorn
of a real decent sort of stuff. A few loads
sold la tha afternoon at figures that wera
as much aa to lower than the early trade,
but buyers seemed perfectly willing to let
the balance go over until this morning. Thla
broadened the offerings a little and, point
ing to tha breaks elsewhere, killer buyer
talked tOo lower right trom the outset Sell
ers put up a fight before cutting loose, anal
soma fit them were able to better early btda
a little, calling their sales only 10 19a lower,
but most of the offerings sold at a decline
of about a dime, and some were quoted as
much aa lO01o down. ' ' .

tha packers from widening the spread as

Sheep Despite the fact that the lamb
run thla week was much smaller than for
tha corresponding period of last year, pre
dictions made at last week's cloae were
well borne out, for packera succeeded In
breaking prices about 76c, which, added to
a nominal break of a quarter on Friday
a week ago, leaves valuea just about fl.OO
lower than they were nine or ten days ago.
Tha chief bearish factor In tha trade was
the depression of eastern dressed mutton
markets, and the raid packers mads on
lamb markets was too determined for sell
ers to check. A Ito break Monday started
the week. Thsn on Tuesday values held
steady In spots and In no case were over a
dime lower, but Wednesday a fresh slump
started which carried prices down another
40o in tha next two days. Friday, with no
range lambs here, trade was quoted nomi
nally steady, good to cholcs rangers being
Mated at 19.7fe09.8S, with natives selling
from 19,76 down. Current quotations are
1.76 lower than those In force at the
start of the second week of June, when
the first range run of any else showed up.
More feeding lambs were here this week
than last, but that Is not saying much, for
at the best supplies are woefully .short
when measured by demand. At the start
of the week prices moved up a quarter, and
while they lost a little of the bloom on the
close, they are , still 16026c above a week
ago. Most of those offered Thursday
brought $9.10, as against 19.00 a week ago.
Tuesday a top of 99.10 was established, but
It waa not obtainable the nest day. Feed
Ins shsep were comparatively scarce. A
few thin ewes were here early In the week
and they sold largely around $6.36. A new
mark for yearling ewes was hung up, a
little package bringing $1.76, while a band
of I, and 4 -year-old made $7.76. The
present scarcity of feeders la seasonable, as
tha early Idaho are usually well sorted
before being shipped.
Ased sheep sold In about the same notch
es alt week, $7.2607.10 being the basis for
moat of the decent to good ewes, while ths
fed wethers here took 17.600 7.76. Year

sharsd the iamb slump Wednesday, and are

SUBSTITUTES FOR HOT STUFF
Ohio Burghers Attempt to Moderate
; - . the Heat f "Words
Several of the most respected citi
zens of Bucyrus. O., have formed
what they call an "Antt-Profanity
club," and it is said the membership
is constantly increasing. "
It appears that these gentlemen
who have taken the initiative in the
establishment of this organization
have heretofore been addicted to the
use of violent and picturesque lan
guage when things didn't go along
smoothly. It appears that before this
club was formed there was consider
able rivalry jn Bucyrus among the
charter members as to which one
could, under stress, emit the largest
volume of sulphuric language in a
fiven time without repeating himself,
n fact they were quite proud of their
ability to express themselves in a
lurid and vehement manner. When a
Bucyrus citizen began to talk in the
language of a pirate it was not un
usual tor the neighbors to call their
children in of! the street and close
At last, however, the wives and
daughters, sisters and sweethearts of
these naughty word jugglers shamed
them into reform. The women pointed
out to them the evil influence their
profanity was sure to have on the
rising generation of the town, and
suggested that when a man resorts
to profanity to express himself it is
an admission that his education in
pure English has been neglected.
These arguments seemed reason
able, so the gentlemen who had been
doing ground and lofty tumbling as
to their use of pyrotechnic language
?ot together and formed the Anti
rofanity club. Since then their lan
guage has been 95 per cent pure.
In lieu of the volcanic verbal erup
tions which they formerly used, each
member of the club has been fur
nished with a list of mild and harm
less expletives to be used in case of
emergency. Here are a few of these
gentle and refined expressions:
'Mercvationl" "Oh, goodness F "La-la-la
V Gracious sake!" 'Gee-whilli-kerF
Dad-bingF and "Ding-bust itF
"Ding bust, it" is regarded by, the
club members as perhaps the most
forceful and expressive expletive in
the list and as a result there has prob
ably, been more "ding -busting" done
recently in Bucyrus than in any other
town of the same population in the
United States. Boston Post.

One Printed in Shorthand by In
dians, One for Engaged Conplei,
Another Read in the Dark.
OEOANS : a ALL - CALLINGS
: One of the queerest newspapers
in the world is the Kamloops Wawn,
a journal printed in thorthand by a
tribe of Indians who live in the in
terior of British Columbia. It was
established through the efforts of a
French missionary, Le Jeune by name,
who came to the Fraser river district
of British Columbia some years ago.
He found the natives superstitious,
ignorant and unable to write their
language. He soon learned the Indian
vocabulary, and then began to write
it by means of shorthand signs which
represented all the sounds the Indians
use in pronouncing the words.
Le Jeune first explained his system
to an intelligent Indian lad who lived
in the central village. The boy took
to it intuitively. In a few months
he 'had thoroughly learned the art
of1 writing his langauge iff shorthand,
and began to teach his friends. The
new "talk language" created wide
spread interest, and the Indians,
young and old, were soon engaged in
practicing this strange method of
After about 500 had mastered the
system, various parts of the Bible
were translated by the missionary,
and finally the Kamloops Wawn was

Le Jeune succeeded in having type
made, and it is now printed on a
press in the nearest city. It has six
teen oases, and contains all the news

the missionary has built up in the
main village. Over 2,000 Indians
have learned to read, it is said that

Just as the "height of editorialism"
may refer to the publication of the
news on top of Mount Washington,
so the "lowest paper in the . United
States" may have no connection with
"yellow" journalism. Burdick has
given some curious information in re
gard to the press in the Colorado
desert His experience dates back
some years; possibly today the paper
he mentions may have descended to
even greater depth.
Two papers were published beneath
the level of the sea. The Submarine
was the first to be issued, "the low
est down of any paper in the world."
Anoiner puDllcanon was ueguii ai a
still lower depth, and the Submarine,
to hold its record, was obliged to
move. It announced its change of lo
cality in the following language:
"We have dropped trom twenty-two
feet below sea level to seventy-six
feet below. The low rumbling noise
heard yesterday was caused by the
office and the press taking the drop."
The Submarine was an eight-page
weekly, printed on blue-tinted paper.
Its humorous department was edited
by "McGinty," the gentleman who
went to the bottom oil the sea. One
column was headed-J'Undertow."
While Mr. Burdlck was in the vi
cinity a paper was in progress of be
ing established in a town us teet
below sea level. Either the Subma
rine was forced to give up its prestige
or else it was fated to make another
move toward the center 01 the earth.
The Washington Megaphone is
probably the most strangely situated
newspaper in the country. It nestles
on the verge of a primeval forest on
one hand, while within less than 100
feet on the other, the waves of the
Pacific ocean lap the shore. In front
of the office runs a mountain stream,
which revolves, in its rush to the sea,
a great mill wheel, which in turn ope
rate the Megaphone's printing press.
When respite from their tasks is af
forded the members of the staff of
the oaoer they may gather apples by
reaching out of a window. Just outside
the door are pears, prunes, plums
and cherries, and a little farther away
blackberries and salmon berries are
their for the picking. Perhaps if the
editor is of Waltonian bent he can
entice salmon, trout and perch from
their native element.
But the editor of the Megaphone, it
appears, it not the only journalist in
the world enjoying uncommon ad
vantages. In Buenos Ayres the life of
an editor, according to reports, is
similarly attractive, yown there one
newspaper office includes a ball room
and an infirmary, where a doctor gives
advice gratuitously to the whole start.
Furthermore, the editors gather in
armchairs or recline on divans and
smoke long, black cigars, between
puffs sipping iced lemonade.
- Some Color Work.
In a remote but busy village of the
Canadian Northwest there was pub
lished some years ago a weekly news
paper in the handwriting of its pro
moter, editor, reporter, advertising
agent and general utility man, the five
combined. This man adorned his live
ly four-page sheet, with caricatures
rudely copied from the comic papers
of the United States and England,
and decorated his horse and stock ad
vertisements with rough cuts. This
weekly appeared in purple ink from
a gelatine reproducing machine, and
its editorials and local news were so
clearly presented that the little jour
nal aiiaincu quite an iniiucncc in inc
territories and was quoted by all the
newspaper of western Canada.
A newspaper produced by the same
process was the Hashpnaland Herald
and Zambesi Times, conducted by a
Briton in the wilds of Africa and sup
ported by subscriptions and ads from
miner and traders.
It is thought that the most north
erly of newspaper is, or was, the
Nord Kap, emanating weekly from
HammerfesL in Norway, from the lit-.
tie turf-roofed house of one Johann
sen. The Nord Kap was, at last ac
count, regularly printed from news

publication of "freak journals finds

A French Curiosity.
The first of the odd sheets devoted
to the interests of engaged couples
appeared a few years ago in Paris,
and while at first thought it might
be supposed that its field would be
quite limited, it, nevertheless, pros
pers even today. Agents in the serv
ice of this journal are employed at
various points in France collecting
items of interest to persons who have
contracted to marry. In each issue
are set forth the names, addresses
and other information concerning en
gaged couples. Each maiden men
tioned receives a free subscription for
a limited period. The real benefi
ciaries of this publication, of course,
are the tradesmen who take the paper,
since they are able to approach the
girl intending to marry with more or
less alluring inducements in the way
of materials for trousseaux, etc.
The original sheet devoted exclu
sively to the interest of beggars was
born in Paris. This paper, entitled
Le Bon Guide, affords daily a com
plete list of baptisms, weddings and
funerals to take place in Paris on that
day, in order that its patrons might be
well posted as to favorable localities
wherein to pursue the day's work.
For begging letter writers Le Bon
Guide publishes a list of the addresses,
arrivals and departures .of travelers
known to be of a charitable disposi
The beggars of London, too, have
their organ, but it is not so "classy"
as the Parisian publication. The Eng
lish Beggars' Journal is a weekly and
prides itself on the exclusive character
of its information. It is unique in
that it is written, not printed, the
paper being the coarse brown variety
commonly used by butchers and
grocers to wrap their wares.
There are lots of other papers for
beggars published in various foreign
countries, as well as in the United
States, but ttfe French and English
sheets are remarkable by reason of
their big subscription list and for the
unquestionable influence they exert.
A queer French journal, which died
some time before the outbreak of the
war, was Le Bien ttre, wnose soie

who should die at the expiration of
forty years, Le Bien Etre offered a

ord. France Makes Statement'
About Its New Income Tax
(Correspondence of the Associated Pre.)
Paris, June 21. Under the new in-
come tax 336,000 persons have made
declarations, but only 163,107 of them
were of amounts that exceed the ex
empt limit. The total of the revenues
declared was 2,949,000,000 franc and
with all deductions made for family
dependents, etc., the 2 per cent on the
taxable portion of the incomes will
be only about 22,000.000 francs. It
was estimated when the law was en
acted that it would produce about 40,
nnonOO francs revenue to the state.

to 25.000 francs, 9,155; more than 25,-

M. Kibot, minister ot tinance, in nis
new financial scheme proposes to in
crease the tax from 2 to 5 per cent,
which would bring the revenue up to
about 55,000,000 francs on the de
clared incomes. There is no basis for
approximating the additional amount
that will be derived from the arbi
trary taxation of persons, who have
neglected to declare their incomes.
From M. Ribot's exoose of results
