The supreme court has confirmed

stables were only allowed five cents,
and proceedings will be instituted
for back fees in many counties
where they were withheld.
One of our Lock Haven exchang
es says a man lias been carrying on
a swindling game in towns of that
section. He represented himself as
an agent for a millinery establish
ment in Lebanon. He was selling
outfits to make artificial flowers and
said he would forward the wax,
silk, wire, thread, scissors, and too
moulds to make 150 in advance.
He stated that he would be around
the next day to give a lesson of an
hour, and would continue for a
week. The students in the art were
to work one hour every day for a
week, and at the expiration of that
time they would receive $2.00 for
their labor. He succeeded in in
interesting a number of ladies who
are still waiting for the return of the
swindler, who left the same day,
and since then nothing has been
seen or heard of him. As he will
very likely try his hand in Blooms
burg, we warn our young ladies to
look out for him.

It is said that war has had the effect
of raising the price of many edibles,
but that very few people know that
the Irish potato is already higher than
in years past at the same seasons.
This is not due to shortage in crops,
for reports coming from various sec
tions show that it is about normal
but entirely to an increase in demand.
The war with Spain has been largely
responsible for this increased demand,
for the United States government is
buying everything in the way of old
potatoes to forward to the troops en
camped in various parts of the country,
and those engaged in the invasion of
Cuba and the Philippines. For several
months past the government agents
have been securing vast stores of old
potatoes. The gain in the regular
demand caused by this drain has
been filled witn orders ror new po
tatoes, and they have constantly risen
in price'somewhat, but the sudden
termination of the war and the muster
ing out of service of 75,000 soldiers,
will probably effect the price, which
will very likely come down a little.
The September number of Harper's
Magazine will be unusually cosmo
politan in character. The timely sub
ject of the outcome of the war with
Spain will be treated in three impor
tant articles : "The Future Policy of
the United States," by James Bryce :
"The United States in Foreign Mili
tary Expeditions," by Professor Albert
Bushnell Hart ; and "The New Fiscal
Policy of the United States," by
Worthington C. Ford. England re
ceives attention in Mr. Smalley's se
cond paper on Mr. Gladstone ; and
in "Social Life in the British Army,"
illustrated by R. Caton Woodville.
"The Romance of a Mad King" is a
vivid sketch of the life of King Louis
11. of Bavaria; Sidney Whitman,
F. R. G. S., writes of "The Turk at
Home" ; and "Days in the Arctic"
are notes from the journal of Frederick
G. Jackson Part i, of "An Angel in
a Web," a novel by Julian Ralph,
