interesting if they had a hand in it. The

The Float Convention.
The float convention met at Weeping
Water last evening at 7 o'clock. There
was considerable dissatisfaction expressed
by a number of the leaders of the repub
lican party from the western part of the
county, on tha grounds that there was no
emergency that made it necessary for the
central committee to select delegates to
the float convention from anion: their
own members. Mr. John Watson, a can
didate for float representative from Otoe
county, was present and with the dele
gates from Otoe,, were unanimously in
favor of postponing the nomination until
the regular convention that holds on

t nut ion or the Country Banker.
Country bankers are a very important class
of people. The checks and drafts they issue
are so hedged about with forms aud char
acters that they caunot be raised with a der
rick or forged by a blacksmith. There is in
Chicago a man who probably handles more
of tins rural negotiable paper than any one
else. He deals in a class of literature which
is sent "securely sealed" on receipt of price.
When his advertising bluffs in the columns
of the country press are called, he shows
down a pair of literary deuces, but he rakes
in the pot all the same, smiling to himself the
while at the gullibility of the bucolic public.
They seek something for nothing; he gives
them nothing for something.
The other day he showed a check he had
received in payment for a book which he
termed in his pastoral advertisement "rich,
rare and racy." The check was drawn on a
bank in a small western town of the mush
room era, and it was drawn by the president
of tho bank. It was for $L The signature
was evidently in imitation of that of tho
man who signs passes in a railroad office
which are "not good unless countersigned
by," and across the signature, at an angle of
forty-five degrees, was written tho legend,
"One dollar." . No one could have raised it
or altered it unless he had been a Herrmann
or a Kellar. It was collateral for a dollar
that would have baffled eve an Oberfcampf.

A Conplo of Clever Trlcfcs.
A healthy looking man horrified our peo
ple a year ago by munching glass apparently
as the average American eats peanuts. He
did not eat glass, however; ho swallowed a
skillfully prepared compositiqa that resem
bled glass, but his punishment is recorded
nevertheless. The glass eater is under the
physicians' care. The exposure of the trick
will lessen the consumption of tho diet that
has brought a trickster to grief and a gruel
diet This imposture is not as bad as Annw
Brown's imposition. About eighteen years!
age a woman living in Wayne county, N.Y.
named Annie Brown, puzzled the doctors.
She professed to be the victim of a snake.
The snake owned her; It was seen in her
mouth, but when- tho doctors tried to get it
it returned to her stomach. Annie made
some money exhibiting the head of the
snake, until she was taken to tho infirmary,
and there ono day a shrewd physician sud
denly choked her and compelled her to dis
gorge the snako, which proved to bo a large
piece of black India rubber that she slipped
down her throat, and then,'with'her ponvul
sive movements, raised up and down. Cif
the two, Annie Brown's is much the cleverest
trick. Tho managers of museums might
revive it now that glass eating is one o the
