managed about fortyfive years was run Over and killed by the Springfield pas senger train last Saturday night His body was horribly mangled the engine having passed over his breast and limps severing the limbs and completely cut- tinghis body in twa The accident oct curred at Mullicans crossing abo t one mile north of town It is not known how he came to meet his death in this manner but the supposition is that he was sleeping upon the track He left town early in the evening and was not again seen alive The engineer and foreman in fact no one connected with or on the train knew of the accident until they were notified by the section foreman Capt Johnson who was com ing in on handcar and found the mane 3ed remains Declamatory Contest The declamatory contest the pupils of the Springfield High School at the Opera House last Friday evening was largely attended and much eni joyed The program as printed in the last issue of The Sun was very enter tainingly rendered After careful consideration the judges awarded the medals offered by Prof Colvin to Bird Lymen Barber whose subject was Gladiators U and to Mips Stella imms recitation The First Settlers Story U All of the contestants acquitted themselves in a manner highly satisj factory to the faculty of the school and gave the large audience a mos enjoyable evening Attorney Waller who presented the p medals to the winners made amos felicitious speech Those who heard mare still puzzled to know the fate ofthe row of wchhbt ao I norou ly spoke His stories werenumeinj and good and it seemed that the audience wanted

night Wilson Canter threw a rock at a colored man as he was going into the store missing his mark The stone tore a hole in the glass as large as the end of a barrel besides racking it in two places almost across the window This is very unfortunate from several standpoints Robertson Bros will be put to no little trouble in replacing the large glass besides the insurance company may conclude to in crease the rate The young man no doubt regrets the accident but boys r should be very careful not to throw stones in the direction ofa sixtydollar late glass It is a bad practice this Jig of

500000 Fairy tales a harness manufacturer said or intimated good story for you advertising agencies The only fairy tale is the fact tbat the advertiser has not made 500000 but many times as muchand that be started his business putting his all into newspaper udvertisftig with a sum much nearer 50 than 500 This man is R W Sears of Sears Roebuck Co Fulton and Desplaines streets Chicago r Mr Sears storied in business iu Chicago jn 1801 lie was told that com petition in1 nail order business would cupitalIdeato putt his advertisement into a newspaper not merely to keep the name before tbeipubiic but to advertise some particular article at some particularly low price nothing more He did this to the extent of about 50 reinvested his prodts eventually getting out a catalogue and thus built up a business It is popularly supposed that the busi neSs was quite small until l807 when outside capital was put in This how ever is not the case as the firm having been built up out of nothing was doing in 1807 a buslness exceedlng that of all but a very few mall order houses From the first customer received through an advertisement trade has now grown Mr Sears says to rabout 2000000 live accounts The volume of business of Sears Roebuckk Co la Bald to exceed that ot any other mall order house in the world its rival for that position by the way being another Chicago coQ cern This volume variously estimat ed at 18000000 20000000 30OOOJ 000 and even more is a subject much speculation among other advertisers I urns say authoritatively that the total business for last December Was somcwbpt in excess of 3000000 this being the sale foe one mouth alone Mr Sears has been the advertising man for tbis concern For the last five years lie has been I believe the heaviest buyer of newspaper space in the world His annual Investment for space alone not including any of the Incidentals of advertising Is said to be in excess of 500000 You ask my opinion on advertising Mr Sears stud today Well ute lon ger I am ut it the less I feel I know about it The whole advertising probe lem resolves Itself into a series of ex periments flnding your way I am never through studying and trying out different ads anti different papers Dont misunderstand me I dont mean that advertising is h gamble It is the constant caret ii methodical watching of results froth every small Investment that assures the success in the aggregate uUs the fellow with the second wind that wins tile race Many advertisers get cold feet Just about the time sue cess would begin to come their way When we advertise we are well satisfied with returns which the average advertiser would consider a losing venture We depend upon the ultimate results the satisfied customer his permanent trade and the trade of his friendsto make our advertisement pay While experiment with the details it seems tome thafthls general adver Using proposition sifts itself down to very simple principles Mr Sears con tinuedTalk United

cations science can devise could not withstand modern long range field and siege guns that the garrison defending a fortress so besieged would certainly be annihilated Calculations of this nature have been upset by the prolonged enduranceiof the Russians at Port Itwas supposed that the new long range guns with powerful explosives wpjild be able to reduce fortifications speedily and that the Japanese would bring to erthe best of the kind However theytdid not get tbelr heavy siege guns Into position in front of the strongest Works until recently With their searchlights and the ex cel lent service of their rifles rapid fire guns and heavy ordnance luirlirig shrapnel the Russians were able to keep the enemy at arms length and force him to the old tedious process of approach by parallels

heavy charges of dynamite hero exploded to shatter the work overheadThe system of detached forts In a chain of defenses has been criti cised on the ground that the torts could be curried one after another by Infantry assaults The Japanese have captured and held Isolated positions in a few Instance but as a rule the Rus sians have regained the lost ground by first bringing long range guns to bear und then making counter assaults The lesson taught at fort Arthur Is that the advocates of expensive fortifi cations know what they are talking aboutv The following Is a good recipe for Old

this asser tion but the the victims of some drug habit or the friendsof one whose heart- poisonedby acetahilid r antipyrin has suddenly ceased to beat before its time will Aook at the matter from another point of view entirely Curing the Spanish war numbers of would e recruits were rejected because of a weak heart and in the epidemic of pneumonia which ravaged trie country last winter an unusual number of deaths occurred from failure of the heart to meet the added strain J Although various causes have dpubt l ss been at work to weaken the hearts 01 the present1 generation there can be no question that one potent influence has been the indi1criminateuse of headache powders iIn all caseS of habitual headache W curring periodically a physician must of findit the causeeye strain

many drugs fail In the anemic form of headache marked by pallor in which the pain is made less severe by lying dnmassa- ge of the head or the application of warm cloths to the head and face will often be found grateful A threatened bilious headache may sometimes be j warded off by a dose of epsom salts as may other headaches due to autointox ication and orie due to overuse of the eyes or eye strain

bestowed upon a pret matrimonial market as well as other people I encouraged another man Men seldom know that they want a woman till they find somebody else does or more especially that she wants
