C., recently on a warrant charging him with liability in the wreck of the Wallace Bank. Of Neill was penniless when a was arrested and was planning to Start life Over again. Of Neill is a Hearty irishman of 50, and a year ago was candidate for the nomination for governor of Washington. He was Defeated in the Conven Tion. In the meantime of Neillis troubles were piling up at Wallace. The Bank there was compelled to suspend. In the crash of Neill lost the rest of his Fortune and a Short time ago he went to Vancouver a looking for a Job Quot As he told the officers who routed him from bed and put him under arrest. Indictments were found against several other wealthy men of Eastern Washington when action was taken against of Neill in connection with the Wallace Bank failure.

Since i his pastorate he has increased the i membership from 238 to 2,500. He has Laid on gods altar for Church work City missions and Home and foreign missions More than $2,000,000. This is a remarkable record especially when it is borne in mind that not a millionaire is to be found in the membership. His election alls to mind that or. Macarthur who seems far from fitting the role of a seventy year old minister has retired from the first and Only pastorate occupied by him during his four decades As a Clergyman. His retirement i rom tile pastorate brings him to a wider activity. It is interesting to note that or. Macarthur was unanimously elected in Philadelphia by delegates representing every country on the Globe to the presidency of the Baptist world Alliance this is the highest Honor possible in the Baptist denomination on either Side of the Ocean or in the world. It is really a world wide Bishopric. Kitchener goes to Egypt St. Louis by Day and Croesus by night tells the Story of the daily life of c. W. Massee a remarkable resident of this City he is head Porter in a millinery establishment. Each morning at 6 45 he mounts his Large touring car and hurries to work where he has the privilege of bossing twelve negroes.

He declares he could live without work but the life of the aver age millionaire would be a bore to him so he prefers to work for $12.31 a week hire a chauffeur live in luxury and scarcely earn his Board at his labor. Massee owns nearly 3,000 acres of the Rich deep lands of Minnesota. He has other property much other property in fact located in St. Louis. He is Able to maintain a nine room House four servants and a big touring car while working at a salary that is in the immediate neighbourhood of $50 a month. His fellow workers gasped with amazement when they Learned of it. When he began coming Down to his pottering in a costly touring car that runs 60 Miles an hour they began to View him with Awe. He is tue Quot Man of mystery Quot among his Fel Low workers Massee has been in St. Louis about four years. He married a widow with not a Little property and to this he has added steadily.

Field marshal Viscount Kitchener a appointment As agent and Consul general at Cairo was received at that City with great satisfaction.

His full title for the position is minister plenipotentiary and Consul general and his salary is �7,000 a year. As regards his suitability for the position it is certain that there is no Man in Britain with whom could be More surely trusted the affairs of Egypt and Sudan. His very name proclaims him to be the Man that is wanted a. Of k., Kitchener of Khar turn. It is a nickname by which he will always be remembered. And yet it is Only one of his Many nicknames. It has been said Quot the great usually talk too much Kitchener never the Yankee boasts that he makes Good on talk and without it Success is w Ell nigh impossible but Here we have a living contradiction to the theory. Kitchener was never at a Public school and commenced his career when he temporarily enlisted while in has teens As a private in the French army of the Loire. At Twenty he blossomed into a Quot sapper Quot joining the engineers and working it can be guessed doggedly at his profession till four years later he became a member of the Palestine Survey. Thus he became part of British history for later he passed o the command of the egyptian cavalry in 1882. Quot 11 a see ease a i Wam a returned and saw under the Sun.

This common vegetable of Mother Earth has Many possibilities for food depending upon the skill and training of the hand that prepares it. In the use of the potato there is a varying degree of proficiency. The Bachelor maid or Man May pre pare a delicious and wholesome soup with a Little Gas Burner and a potato or two. A variety of soups May be served to vary the Monotony by adding fresh celery to the potatoes while cooking. Or celery Salt for seasoning.

Some homely dishes. Road settles famous Sandwich Case Laurier is not to quit Topeka Western Railroad i would not permit the hunk of hardtack and piece of hog Hock known As the Railroad eating House Sandwich to get into the Kansas courts though it had to pay Well to keep it out. Last Spring l. M. Couchman a Topeka travelling Salesman was Riding on a train toward Home.

The girl grinned at Couchman As he vainly tried to Force his Teeth through the adamantine crust and when be qui she asked sweetly. A ooh Isnit it Good a a new. Gimme a piece of pie instead a said Couch and. The pie was a wonderful improvement Over the Sandwich. He paid for its this a of in qty it and walked out. Then a special officer of the Railroad company collared him on the platform and roughly forced him to disgorge to cents for the hunk of hardtack and pork. Couchman brought suit for $2,000 damages to his peace of mind for the rough treatment he received and to cents additional for the Sandwich he t paid for and eat.

In choosing a Turkey As any other poultry it should be plump have smooth legs and the cartilage at the end of the breast Bone should be pliable. Cock turkeys Are usually considered better eating than Hen turkeys. Unless the latter Are Young Aud plump. A Turkey weighing nine pounds should roast from two and a half to three hours. There Are such differences in taste As regards stuffing that a few recipes May not be unacceptable at this time. There is the old fashioned Sage stuffing liked by our grandmothers and one that is hard to improve on to a cupful of breadcrumbs pour Over boiling water to moisten season with butter Pepper Salt and dry Sage leaves rubbed to a powder using two teaspoonfuls of the Sage to a cup of the crumbs.
