The Cass County Twenty-second An- j
nual Fair opened at the new fair grounds
south of the city today. This will doubt
less be one of the most successful yet held
here, as in all particulars everything is
much more favorable than on any pre

first-class horses from a distance entered.
A lare jiumbr of visitors are in the city

can bs reached by either Chicago or Lin
coin avenues, as they are located at the
juncture of the two ayenues, and only a
short distance south of the city.
Mr. G. B. Kempster, who has recent
ly come to our city, has attained for
himself an enviable reputation by his
thorough knowledge of pianos and or
gans. He has acted as agent for seyeral
eastern firms since locating here, and has
been very successful. He received a
piano for Mr. Oliver Dovcy a few days
ao. As the instrument is the most styl
ish and possesses the most charming tones
of anv we have seen or heard In the city
we consider that it is worthy of special
mention. The instrument is valued at
000 and was manufactured by Wm
Urowai! & fW of the Boston conserva
tory. As Mr. Kwiter is a resident of
the city, and understands nis i usmess
thoroughly, be ahould recm tn patron

R9sults of Stooping His Paper.
A Sunday school paper tells the follow
ing '-whopper" of a certain man getting
mad at an editor and stopping his paper:
"The next week he sold all his corn at 4
cents below the market price; then his
projTety was sold for taxes because he
didn't read the sheriff's sales; he lost $10
betting on Mollie McCarty, ten days af

Irishman, with a boot like A. Derrick, to
kick him all the way to the newspaper
office, where he paid four years' subscrip

an agreement to kick him down and rob
him if he ever ordered his paper stopped

About fifty of the Iieatrice sports ac
companied their ball club to this city to
day. No doubt they are prepared for
every need and will help their team out
in every possible way. It is reported that
each man is the possessor of a tin horn
which they are to toot whenever oppor
tunity is offered by a good play by their
club, or when a blunder of some
kind is made by our home team. The
boys here have signified their intention
of being prcpered for them if such is the
:as. If horns are scarce they can locate
"Cotton" out in the field, whose voice,
we are sure would be equivalent to a
dozen or more of the loudest horns.

, ALMOST EVERYBODY SWEAR3.
CrciM Erreloii Which Are Relljr la
- - vixatloiii of the Deity Bad Tate.
When we come to thiult of it, almost every
body swears. Not a downright, up and up,
out aud out swear, to bo sure, but fiorflfl sort
of a makeshift for an outh falls now and
then from almost everybody's lips. There
are times when what aro popularly known
ns "cuss words'' seem the only thing to fill
tho bill the masculine bill, that is.
Muny outh have lot their original signif
icance and evil virility, and survive merely
as more or less innocent expletives for the
relief of feminine feelings. How many of
the women who a dozen times a day ex
claim, "O dear!' or "O dear me!" stop to
think or would know if they did think
that these careless expressions are invoca
tions of the Deity? "O dearl" conies from
tbo Italian, "O Dio!" meaning "O God!"
and "(J dear me!" from "O Dio mio!" "O
myOodl" while "I vum!" qtiito a common
expression among New England country
folk, both male aud female, is doubtless a
corruption of 'I vow to Him!" There be
thoso who say that "Dear sui!" a favorite
old fashioned feminine expletive means, or
once meant, "Dear Jesus!" and who does not
know that "Gracious!" and "Goodness!"
mean "Gracious God!" and "Eternal Good
ness" if they mean anything?
Tho rustic evades tho oath with his "I
swan!" "15y might-!1' and similar expres
sions, which servo as a safety valvo, without
to his thinking violating tho decalogue.
Yet "1 swan!" can bo traced to "I swear to
Oho," and "By mighty," of course, means
"by tho Almighty." That atrocious huoolic
concatenation, "I snum!" defies definition,
but who can doubt that it originally meant
something it ought not to mean?
My good and devout old grandfather, who
would, as soon have taken a life as tlie name
of his God in vain, would have been horri
fied to hear that his semi-oeeasional
"Zounds!"' was but an abbreviation of
"God's wounds!" while his brother, who in
emergent moments was given to shouting
"S'death, sir!" would have been equally
scandalized to know ho was swearing by
"His (Christ's) death."
While there can bo little question that
swearing was resorted to in tho first instance
to emphasize men's meaning, thero can bo no
sort of question that tho promiscuous pro
fanity of today utterly defeats its own ob
ject. It emphasizes nothing but the speaker's
lack of meaning and of taste. Remonstrate
with any habitual swearer, and ho will say
ho "means nothing by it." But, if ho doesn't,
why constantly violate not only the deca
logue, but the sensibilities of those about
him? Mary Norton Bradford in Boston
l'eculiarities of tho Jail Birtl.
Tho liberated jail bird is a study for the
t.loso observer of human nature and cTiarac
Jer. llo looks ffervouily over his shoulder
t every step, as if suspicious of being fol
lowed, and is half inclined to break into a
run or to dive into the first secure alleyway
that presents itself. K is apparent from tho
expression on each man's faco that he can
hartllj" realise that he is free once more.
His independence actually oppresses him and
makes him ill at case. Thero i3 something
about his clothes, too, that he cannot seem
to forget. However old they may be, they
have at least a certain feeling of newness to
him, and ho keeps constantly looking down
at his wrinkled trousers, gives his coat sleeves
a straightening pull every thirty seconds, or
brushes somo particularly dirty spot that ho
observes on his vest with the palm of his
hand. Then he takes off his hat to make
sure that it is not the striied one he has
worn for the past sis months, and when he
convinces himself that it is uot ho replaces it
upon his shaven head again with grim satis
faction. The chances are that the jail bird will have
a friend awaiting him outside the gate, or
perhaps tho wife whom he a short time ago
almost murdered will be there with a baby
in Ler arms, forgetting how be abused her
and ready to welcome him back again. Oa
the other hand, if no one comes to receive
him ho will, as soon ai he reaches the first
crossing, come to a sudden halt, with uncer
tain resolve which way to go. There are
only three directions to choose from, that is
certain ; but which to take it is not a little diffi
cult to decide. Had he a coin in his pocket
it would be a toss up; but he is, unfortu
nately, not overburdened with wealth. Sud
denly, however, he will hurry down down
town, and in a moment is lost in the crowd,
on his way no one knows where. That same
evening you may, perchance, see him sitting
on one of the Battery Park benches, where
if he happens to fall asleep be will be arrested
for vagrancy, and next morning the same
little high pressure tug that brought him to
the city will carry him back for another
sojourn among tho granito quarries and
produce gardens of Blackwell's Island. John
