Last evening witnessed a very injoy-
able event in which quite a number oi
the young people of this ci"y were par
ticipants. The event was that of a party
given in honor of Jliss Eiiralls, of
Hastings, who i- the guest of the Miscs
Weckbach. The usual amusements were
indulged in, after which refreshments ii;
abundance were served until all were
sure their satisfaction was complete.
The Misses "Wctkbacli deserve great
creelit for the manner in which
they furnished so much enjoyment
to their guests, and the event will eye;
be remembsred as a delightful one.

The Perkins House is undergoing a
thorough renovation, and 3Ir. Kiddle,
the congenial proprietor, is sparing no
time and expense to make this house one
of the foremost in this part of the State.
A good hotel is an accommodation that
is something this city is sadly in need of,
and Mr. Kiddle will do our city proud if
be fulfills his plans, and we feel quite
confident he will. A good deal of com
plaint has been made in this city by th?
traveling public, for want of proper ac
commodation, but if this gentleman will
only d as we feel cpuice certain he will,
it would throw out inducements to out
riders who steer clear of thi3 city today
just en that account. Such an enterprise
would certainly be highly beneficial to
all, especially the proprietor, who would
reap a rich harvest if he will only work

Since we have, by request of a large
number of the citizens, started the Daily
HiiitALi), anel cannot offer any serious'
causa for complaint to those who have
been generous enough to appreciate our
endeavors to furnish them with a good
live sheet, we wish to mention the fact
that although we are now doing our best
to keep the wheel turning every day,
there is oiu elay in the week to which we
devote considerable time to bring out a
good weekly paper, anel we wish to make
special mention of this, and render what
ever rissiater.ee is in our power to ad
vance it, and if each one of our friends
will j u-1 throw out a little influence to
wards the weekly, the benefit woulel bi
realized immediately, and with that assis
tance we can promise you improvements in
both. Although the daily is now paying
its way uict-ly, we do not wish the public
to think the weekly has dropped out of
existence, aud as we are epjite sure a
number will endeavor to cstist us, we
will give to any cne sending us thiity,
(oO) yearly subscribers, an open-faced,
stem winding silver watch, valued at

what we recoa.menel if, a first-class trti

The Y. L. R. R. A. will give a liter
ary social on Tucday evening next, in
the G. A. R. hall. The people of this
e;ty would do well to patronize this en
tertainment and offer a little assietanec
to this good cause. Only a few days ago
the association secured the services of
the Welsh Prize Singers, and had the
smallest attcj-.d.apcc at that conceit we
have witnessed at ny entertain
ment in the opera house for a long time,
The singiDg was of the highest class and
was very much appreciated by all
who took advantage of this rare
opportunity, but both the singers and the
young ladies of the association felt very
much disappointed to scee such a slim
house, and is enougli to eliscourage them
in their good work. The reading room
furnishes gooel reading of every descrip
tion, .and any ueeson who has no other
way of securing good reading are at
liberty to visit tiic reading room where
they can find whatever news they want
free of charge. But such an institution
rannot cupport itself, so the citizens of
Piattsmoath should give juii a little as
sistance, il not much, by patronizing an
occasional entertainment given by these
young ladies, and by ho doing, which
would cost but very little, would largely
h;-Ip to support it. We hope to see the
social next Tu?sday well attended. The
entertainment will consist of music, reael
ings, recitations and three or four essays.

Definition of Male lieaary.
To call a man charming in face, or
lovely, or beautiful, or pretty, is to mini
mize almost to insult him. A man can
only be called handsome, an il very, very
few men can be called that.
A handsome man must te manly in
figure, conveying the Idea of strength and
energy under the most reposeful exterior.
He must have the shapely hands, feet anel
ears that tell of good blood and cultivated
progenitors; he must have his head well
shaped, well set and well carried; he
must have a deep, broad chest and a
straight back, and long shapely limbs;
his features must be regularly formed,
and yet full of expression, and the kingly
power that great sculptors try to give to
Coloring does not much matter, so that
there be no reel upon the cheeks, and not
too much in the lips, and, perhaps, the
mezzo tints lend themselves most satis
factorily to manly beauty, but, above all,
the handsome man must never be stout.
The heavy throat which overflows the
shirt collar never caries with it an nir of
refinement, whatever it may do of
strength. A blonde man runs the risk of
weakness and insipidity, and a black
beard man is handsome, even though he
be a trifle melodramatic, but still golden
haired and black haired men have betn
very attractive the worlel over.
Of course below this grand climacteric
in the thoroughly handsome man there
are ranks after ranks of good looking,
attractive, pleasant faced men some
upon whom one loves to look and find
sweet content In contemplating faces nnel
forms far from faultless, anel yet quito
satisfactory. Aud here we come upon
one of the most strange and almost cruel
conditions of our being. A man may or
may not be handsome, he may or may
not have any physical attractiveness what
ever, but nobody likes him the less for the
deficiency, he never finds it a barrier in
his career, a source of failure in his life;
women love him and men approve of him
just as readily as if ho is handsome; in
fact, the woman or women who love him
set him down as handsome in serene de
fiance of the rule3 of beauty or the opin
ion of the world. Mrs. Frank Leslie
A Natural Lamp.
The light of the fireflies of tropical
America seems to be dependent upon the
w ill, as when feeding or asleep it is not
seen, attaining its greatest brilliancy dur
ing activity and flight. The color of the
light is rich green, but the eggs omifc a
light of a bluish tint, according to Dubois.
This naturalist has made extremely inter
esting experiments with the pyrophortn.
The eggs which he dried retained their
luminosity for a week, the light reappear
ing when they were placed in water, lie
ground the luminosity organs in a mortar,
after having dried them in a vacuum,
and then mixed them in boiled water, the
latter Immediately becoming luminous.
Dr, Dubois concluded that the light cf
the pyrophorus Is Intended as illumina
tion for itself alone. To prove this he
covered one of the upper lights with wax
and the animal moved in a curve; when
both spot3 were covered the beetle soon
stopped and then moved in an uncertain
manner, carefully feeling the ground with
his antenna. The spectrum of the light
was extremely beautiful, being continu
ous, without -dark or brilliant rays.

Topics ot Conversation.
More than six months ago an English
magazine offered a prize of three guineas
for the most original and suitable topics
of conversation on the four occasions of a
morning call, before dinner, in the draw
ing room, during dinner (ia the dining
room) and in the train. Either this three
guinea prize was no temptation to in
ventive conversationalists, or else the task
proves to be impossible, for believe the
project has fallen through, and wo must
go on without the discovery of a royal
road to brilliant talk. What a blessing a
few sparkling suggestions would be to
those of us who only can berate the
weather when the supply of gossip falls
short. In thesa days when- money buys
everything, the demand for appropriate
topics of conversation really ought to bo
furnished regardless of expense. Th6
trouble with the editor of this magazine
in cjuestlon was, not that he didn't mean
well, but that he didn't make his prize
worth the trying for. Three guineas!
Why,' bless the man, he should offer a
undred times three, and become a bene
factor to mankind in the noble results he.
would attain. Boston Herald.

The present year bids fair to be a dis
astrous one from tornadoes and wind
storm3. This is fore-shadowed by the
number of storms we have already had
the most destructive one so far this year
having occurred at 3It. Vernon, 111.,
where a large number of buildings were
destroyed or damaged. The exemption
from tornadoes last year renders their oc
currence more probable in 1888.
