is made to Chapman's defeat by a 'boj

state convention, and also reference is
had to Chapman's defeat in the third

Consuelo has gone friui us like a dog
from a dose of turpentine, and has-

There is around this ofiice one
canine of the male sex whose ecphon-
ious title is Hero. He is the propert)
of C. W. Sherman and is a beast ot
magnificent attainments and many
ileas. Like his master he is fat and
sleek with profound labor upon the
tariff and silver and never loses an
apportunity to argue a point with a
friend or enemy. He is kind, too, and
tbis'quality is going to get him into
trouble. He persists in wanting to
love me overmuch. I like to be loved
but not by canines and C. W. Sherman
will get his dog killed if he don't teach
him better manners.
Once upon a time there was a good
little boy who wore long hair and a
sweater. When be was yet young he
was permitted to stand out in the rain,
and the water permeating his head
caused small ponds to form upon the
surface of this gray matter. One of
these ponds formed over that portion
of his brain known as oratory, and
drowned out that particlar paitof his
anatomy. Yet be knew it not, and upon
all occasions he would malevolently
and persistently recite the weird
story of 'Spartacu3 and his cheese
knife." Years rolled on; the boy
flourished and waxed strong and
hearty like unto a young bull, but
still Spartacus haunted his waking
hours and dwelt upon his pillow at
night, bo that in the end he persisted
in embellishing the program at every
declamatory contest and, persisting,he
was also in the end fallen upon by the
populace and beaten near unto death
and his spirit rode before St. Peter
upon a bicycle with ball-bearings and
oversprung regulator. Thi3 is a tale
for good, little boys and girls, and cer
tain people may read it with profit to
themselves and their fellowmen.
It Is not the bands of heroes
Battling for their fellow men,
Nor the helping band of woman, .
Nor the hand that wields a pen,
Nor the hand that beats the carpet
On the backyard fence unfurled,
Dut tbe band that beats four aces
Is the hand that rulefe the world.
There is more truth than poetry in
the above skit. Everybody knows that
heroes are born every day and that
history is made from their battles for
their fellow men,bnt who can say that
history is made by the man who beats
four aces. And yet the four ace beater
is the man who will rule. Again, we all
know that life would be a drear and
desolate waste but lor the helping
hand of woman, and still the helping
hand of woman will not beat the baud
that skins four aces. And the wielder
of the pen ptrts with his cash with
great facility to the n un who beats
four aces. But the crowning triumph
of the man. who beats four aces is when
he closes up the gap with the hand
that beats the carpet. Everybody has
pounded' the carpet to a finish, but
never has four aces been beat. When
the time comes that four aces will go
down iu riotous defeat before the
strong hand then will we find a world-
Sunday was a day of horrors in the
east. Murder and death stalked
through the land. Ohio, Indiana, Illi
nois, New York and New Jersey were
all visited ly death in its most terrible
forms. Masked murderers, fratricides,
and holocausts made Monday's papers
read like a history of the grey death it

Yon can always tell whether a
place is any gt-od or not by hearing
travelling men talk about it," said a
drummer to the writer. "I always
hear g od words from the drummers
about t tie village of Avoca," he con
tinued. I always fell a good bill theie,
and always find the merchants are
That fellow's head is level. Avoca
is not very large, but it enjoy s a good
trade, because its business is not over
done, and its dealers are men who
keep large stocks of goods, are 'up to
snuff." and are pleasant men to deal
with. Messrs. B. C. Marquardt and
F. B. Busching are the general mer
chants, and they are as clever men as
can be found in any town iu the
county. Besides these there is a hard
ware establishme nt,and Orlando Tefft
has a large lumber yaid, with the
most abundant of shed room. Henry
Ilagerman has a first-class mill, with
modern roller machinery, and Messrs.
Brooks & Marquardt have an exten
sive elevator for handling grain. Be
sides these Dr. J. F. Brendel attends
to the health of the community, and
there is a hotel, restaurant, a drug
store, a bank and several emaller con
cerns, making up the measure of the
wants of a well-iegulated village.
