A call has been issued for a meeting

Thu dutuocrats of this county will
meet at Uluu Hill tomorrow fur tbu
purpose, of oigiuiizing n Tammany

Ohio were tiled this. week. Thu republi

its report, 8U1.123 07. The largest out
lay was in thu conduct of tbu literary
bureau, which furnished every daily

An injudicious Thomas cat engaged
in an argument with another feline
who bad oonsldorablo moro strength
and sciouce than himself. Whou the
argumeut was ended tho injudicious
cat was sbort enough hair to stuff a
small pillow. He finally gathered him
self together snd crawled feebly under
tho shelter of a porch to takonn inven
tory of himself aud flguro on repairs.
While thero he heard a democrat try
t( to demonstrate to a companion
that the late elections woro verj' en
couraging to the democratic party.
After listening to the talk for n few
minutes a sad sort of smile spread over
thu distigured countenance of the c.tt
as bo said: "After listening to the
talk cf those cheetful ducks I have
aboi t concluded that I must havo
whipped that other cat after nil, but if
I was to whip him again the same way
there wouldn't be enough whole pieces
of bide left on mu to make a collarette

seems to bu able to extract comfort out
of any kind of an election.
"Thu Bryan windmill, remarks an
uxrbange, "Is purely a Nebraska enter

always in gear, runs equally well in
hot or cold weather, whether thu wind
blows or does not blow, is self lubri
cating, ball bearing, admits of no reg
ulating, and never runs down or wt ars

existence and there will .never be an
other. Just where it came from or
what inspired its Invention nobody ap

thatsomothlng important rotating to
Cuba is under consideration by tho
president. All tho information that
can bo obtained at the war department
is that tho president wished to get
ticn. Wood's ndvico upon some Cuban
matters. Interest in Gen. Wood's visit
is increased by thu fact that it was
somi-ofllolally announced several days
boforo ho reached Washington, that
tho president had decided, on tho ad
vice of Ills cabinet, to mako no change
in tho military government of Cuba
until after the convening of congress,

A Kearney paper notus tho fact that
when thu town went "dry" last spring
a great do.uaud sprang up for summer
drinks. Nearly all tho saloons in town
opened up as temperaucu drinks ba
zaars, and the amount of soda water
consumed was something enormous,
notwithstanding the fact that thu local
soda water factory noticed no in
creased demand for its goods. Regu
larly each morning, regular customeis
wended their way to tho onco famud
haunts of King Al K Hall and refresh
ed themselves for the morning moal at
the temperaucu drink counters. Tho
demand for summer drinks has not
fallen otT witli tho c miiig of cold
weather. Strange as it may have
seemed to thu tumparancu puople, the
numberof intoxicated individuals did
not decrease in thu least and the smell
of liquor could bu detected or. many
breaths. Stranger still thu method of
serving soda water changed. Al Hit
it wati served in large glasses, such as
one sees at tbu lumonadu stands.
G adually tho sl.e of thu glasses de
creased until it is now served in glass
es little larger than a tbimblo and of
tho thickness jf paper.
Thero is nothing enlightens ono

It will bo found by a perusal of tbu
church services in this issue that one
of tho church notices has boon droDned
out by us, uot of our own volition, but
because it becamo necessary on ac
count of the fact that a change of copy
has not been furnished us since a week
or two before election, wbilu other
papers were receiving copy weekly
with tho changes In tho services. In
order that members ot that congrega
tion will not judge us harshly for the
omission we thus frankly stato tho rea-
soo. A notice of this Icibd must be
up-to-dato or it is of no value. During
tho nine years wo have published a
paper in this city wo havo given our
columns frcey tor tho benefit of legiti
mate church enterprises, and in numer
ous instances whoro outside persons
received tho bonellt, and wo will con
tinue to do so, believing that what we
dois appreciated. If tho embittcruient
of a political campaign cannot bu fi
given by this man of God as it has by
another in similar oircumstacccs what
can bo expected of thoso outsidu the

MEANEST OF THEM ALL.
This Very Close Man LItci ta Chl-
go and Ia the Champion
There are lots ot mean men in tho
world. There is one in Boston who
will never toll anyone tho timo of day;
there is one In Colorado who never
lights a cigar in winter' because his
breath upon the frosty air gives the
same satisfaction, and there is another
in l'illsbury, Wyo who never has a tire
iu his house because the smoke might
wear the chimney out. Hut the mean
est of all men lives right hero in Chi
cago. Tho other night ho came along Ran
dolph street and stopped at a little
sidewalk stand whereon were displayed
such trinkets as collar buttons, shoe
laces, combs and pocket mirrors. He
took up one of the latter, and the pro
prietor's eyes brightened at tho pros
pect of a sale.
"now much?" asked the meanest
"Five cents," answered the propri
etor of the stand.
The meanest man looked the object
carefully over. "I'll give you three."
The other shook his head.
The meanest man held out. "Too
much," he said. Somu how, between the
two outstretched hands, the pocket
mirror fell and broke into several
pieces on the pavement. The meanest
man picked up the remains, retaining
one fragment of the glass. The propri
etor lamented. The meanest man
passed on up the street. At the corner
he stopped, nnd, holding the little piece
of mirror before him, ran a small comb
through his whiskers.
"A man doesn't need a whole pocket
glass for a small beard," he muttered.
