Church bells can serve another pur-
pose be.i.les ringing you to worship.
They make a good substitute for a
barometer, As the atmosphere Is the
sole conductor of sound from the bell
to the ear, It Is obvious Hint the iu-
tenalty and quality of the sound ns
perceived by the ear will depend on
tin- state of the medium through whieh
It comes. For Instance. If bells sound
very distinctly of an evening, this
points to the probability of a wet day
following, since air heavily charged
with moisture conducts sound better
than dry air. So, too, as dense air con-
duets better than light uir, bulls sound
more Clearly when the barometer ls
high than when it Is low, other things
being equal, and so, too, with hot and
cold uir. These principles are familiar
to all country folk living within the
sound of church bells. About five

"it is a sweeping victory foi tho
city," sa.M Mayor Dunne. "There are
no ninety-nine year franchises In the
City of Chicago, according to this
decision, and no indefinite or perpetual grants In the outlying territory.1
We have the traction companies now
in a position where we can negotiate
for the purchase of their lines. If they

Associated Press dispatches received here yesterday regarding the
decision of the United States supreme
court in the Chicago Street railway | '
cases were apparently inconsistent
with the despatches received here
last night. In the first despatches it
was stated that the stocks of the
Chicago Street railways advanced
sharply as a result of the decision.
This was taken as an indication that
the street railway companies had won
in the fight. This does not appear to
be the case, ln the light, of Mayor
Dunne's expression quoted iu the
foregoing, and in the light also of
what Judge John E. Humphreys had
to say this afternoon.
"The people of Chicago," said Judge
Humphries,  "are to  vote  In April on
tii" question of municipal ownership
jof their street railways. They are to
I vote   on   the  issuance   of   $75,000,000
worth of bonds, the proceeds of which
are  to  go  to    the  purchase    of    the
street   railways.   These   bonds   are  to
| be issued on the certificate plan and
iare to be paid, principle and interest,
from  the incomes derived by the city
i from the operation of the street rail-
I ways.
"It is clear that the rise In the
j stocks of the Chicago corporations is
due to the fact that under the deci-
I sion of the United States supreme
court, the people now are in a posi-
1 tion to buy the street car lines out-
I right or to condemn them. Either of
: these courses Is open, provided, of
course, that the people authorize the
I bond   issue  of  $75,000,000."

Few men have seen more tips and
downs In life than "Swiftwater Bill."
Coming to manhood not only penniless but Illiterate, he found that civilization had no use for such a dull
fellow as he, and at the first opportunity struck out for the treasure
Balds of Alaska. There, after many
vicissitudes, he found what he sought,
came back to the states and scattered It around with both hands. His
first wife, one of the three Lamore
sisters, of mlnlng-camp dance-halt
fame, helped him spend his money.
Nothing was too good for Mr. and
Mrs. "Swiftwater Bill." They wore
diamonds and bands of gold big
enough to make a barber blush for
human vanity, and the wine they
consumed woubl have enabled an
hydraulic outfit to wash away Mount
St. Ellas.
In the course of human events Independent Mr. Gates went broke and
hied himself back to the mines. Soon
he returned with another fortune,
and spent it the same way. -About
