The Trenton Sun l EPITOME OF THE WEE]L BRIBiNEWS SUMMARY FOR BUSY &BTIR'UK OHWL.HR, IMIo. THE rifle competitions of the regular army for 1894 are drawing to a close and the records are pronounced excel- lent. The United States will soon have an army made up entirely of erack shots. REFERRING to the new Ohio law which requires the adulterator of food to so label his product that purchasers may know what is in it, the Wheeling Intelligencer wants a law passed in West Virginia requiring every burglar to ring an alarm before breaking into a house. AN Indiana farmer lighted a fire in a stove wherein his good wife had se- creted $200 in greenbacks. It is sad that people should ever lose money; but since it must be so, the sort that pack their wealth in stoves would seem to be appropriate selections on the part of Providencd. THE Japanese statesmen propose dividing China into three parts or sep- state powers, as a means of forcing European ,ideas and civilization upon the Orientals. In this recipe for cook- ing the Celestial hare the Japs are omitting an important preliminary, to-wit, first catch the hre. ONE can become a famous chicken man,,or hog man, or cattle man, or horse man, as he chooses, but he must remember that each road to fortune requires special knowledge. Our fathers made money in a haphazard way, we hardly know how, butin these days of competitive effort this cannot be done. THERE seems to be a hitch in the mew football rules,which were intended to make the sport less brutal. The first time the Yale team went on the field nine men were injured and re- fired. But as up to date no deaths have been reported, the impression prevails that the right step has been taken. One of these days a game of football may be as harmless as a French duel. THERE is a discussion going on now in marine circles as to whether the boatswain, or ,,be'sun," as we have learned to call him, should be dis- pensed with on beard ship, On'the one hand, it is argued that with the substitution of steam for canvas his occupation is gone; while on the other it is held that he could find useful employment on a steamship, and that if he is done away with there would be hothing for the common sailor to aspire to. EMPEROR WILLIAM?S action in reduc- ing the term of obligatory service in the German army from three to two years has had the unexpected effect of minishing not only the number of suicides but also the average of disciplinary punishments inflict- ed. Investigation has now shown that most of the suicides used to take place in the third year of serv- ice with the colors, and that nearly all of the more serious offenses against the regulations were committed by {hlrd-eax men. COURAGE, hopefulness, patience and relief of the difficulties and burdens oi the journey of life with a song and a laugh, and a cheery hail to the passer- by, these are the essential character. . 0 the teaclxi 0f Olive_r Wen- 'dell Holmes. It will be as the sub- lhnation of the Yankee character in its most benignant and amiable quali- ties of mind. heart and intellect, deal- ing profoundly as the Yankee ever does wih great themes that this wit. philosopher and poet will be reckoned among the great literary men of his oountry when posterity has viewed them grouped. IF doctors' carriages in the country had distinguishing lights, so that peo- ple could tell one as it passed in the night, it would be a good thing. Peo- ple in the more scattered suburbs would appreciate such an arrangement also. An incident in point: A country doctor returning home from a profes- sional visit to a hou:;o twelve miles away found a call to a house half a mile beyond he one he had just visited. The gentleman who had come for him had passed him on the road in the darkness, but for lack of distinguishing lights had not been able' to speak to him in passing. HERE and there pure food advocates Mrs. Refer among them. are injuring their cause by urging the uselessness of the potato as an article of food. They are attacking a staple that more than 800 years of constant use have vindicated. They are declaring that this delicious tuber has no nourish- ing qualities about it, when it has constituted ahnost the sole food of many hardy people in Southern Ire- land for generations. If the better- food advocates m'e to waste their en- ergies fighting an article with as much virtue as the potato, what good can they be expected to accomplish When they attack some article that is really pernicious.

I LATEST BULLETIN SHOWS HIM SOMEWHAT IMPROVED. WEd Rumors in Circulation That the Emperor Was Dead--Disastrous Gale Along the Drltish Coast--Socialists in Session. ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. 23.Yesterday an unoffictl dispatch was received from Livadia stating that the czar had passed a better night and had been able to sleep a little. This somewhat alleviated the anxiety, although even the official bulletins are now received with suspicion. After this bulletin nothing was received until 9 o'clock in the evening, when another private dispatch reported a continued slight im- provement, also that he had a better appetite. This was confirmed at ]1 o'clock by another official bulletin. This bulletin is signed by the five phy- sicians in attendance upon his majesty. The crowds that had long and patiently awaited the issue of the bulletin read and discussed it with evident relief and then rapidly dispersed. The dearth of news from Livadia Saturday occasioned the wildest ru- mors to circulate to the effect that the czar was actually dead but that the fact was concealed because the czaro- wltz had renounced the succession to the throne and the Grand Duke George. the czar's second son. had also died from the lung trouble from which he has long been a sufferer. These ru- mors were effectually silenced by the issuing of a bulletin at night that the czar had been out of his bed during the day but his general condi- tion was unchanged. Yesterdny, however, the rumors have been re- vived in an intensified form, Sabbath leisure and the gathering of unusually large congregations attra-.ted by the special prayers for the czar assisting in the growth of the rumor and spec- ulation. It is everywhere recognized that the doctors have no hope of his recovery and that they are only devot- ing their efforts to prolonghis majesty's life until the arrival of Princess Alix at Yalta so that her marriage to the czarowitz may be celebrated befox his death. It is said that the physicians have now been compelled to turn their attentions to the czarina, whose mind is said to be seriously affected by the strain of nursing her husband. The special services in all the churches yesterday were well attended. The reverence displayed and the sin- cerity ef the prayers offered show how deeply the public mind is affected. In the theaters here and at Moscow during the last few days there have been numerous instances during inter- vals between the acts of the audience calling on the orchestras to play the national hymn, "God Protect the Czar," to which the people would listen stand- ing.

LODON, Oct. 2&raThe Warner light- ship, while being towed during a gale from Spithead to its station, broke away from the tug boat when near New Haven and was driven shorewards.

The crews were saved by the use of the breeches buoy. The loss to the owners of fish- ing vessels is large, many of their oats having been destroyed. At Sun- derland a life brigadcsman was drowned.
