Harrison propose to do about it?
A bent or two of the Driftwood flume
of the Meeker irrigation ditch was dis
turbed, a few days since, by leaking

on the wooden flumes of the ditch, mak

J. H. Smart has disposed of his photo
graph gallery to a gentleman named P.
W. Marcellus and will go south for his
health, which has become considerably

health wherever he may locate; and wel

his business relations here may be as
pleasant and profitable as his prede
The Superior Journal says: “It doesn’t
pay any man to reserve his advertising
for the sheriff. The legal rate is $1.00
per square for the first insertion, and
fifty cents per square for each subsequent
insertions. Do you catch on?” None
of this is as humiliating, however, as it
is to have the sheriff’s sale of your own
paper and printed in the columns of your
own esteemed contemporary.

The salary grab ordinance is justly
considered one of the most unpopular
measures of the present city administra
tion. Especially so in view of the exces
sive burden of taxation under which we
are now laboring. The salaries are too
high by half, and they should be prompt
ly decreased.
A young man talks with pleasure, an
old man talks with ease; the orator talks
as some men walk, a six-day-go-ns-you
please. The preacher talks of sins and
things, of hell’s eternal fury; the lawyer
hurls his jawbone at a mad but helpless
jury. Thus each one talks and talks and
talks, each one of his own speech proud
est, neglectful of the painful fact that
money talks the loudest.—O’Neil Fron
Once again I find you weeping, as I’ve
seen you weeping before, shedding tear
drops by the gallon over all my parlor
floor. Haroun Ali, this is foolish—eyes
were made for other things, than to use
as human cisterns, or as never failing
springs. Yes, I saw your mother whip
you, saw her giving you a cuff, and I
really felt like yelling: “Go it madam!
that’s the stuff!” Not that I am cold
and heartless, caring naught for childish
woes, for I once was young as you are,
and I know how it goes; but your mother,
son of Osman, she is waxing wan and
old, and her step is slow and feeble, and
her days are almost told; she has borne
so many burdens that she craves a little
rest, just a little ease at evening as the
sun sets in the west. And she asked
you, Haron Ali, asked you in a gentle
tone, if you wouldn’t split a little kind
ling, and you answered with a groan:
“You are always asking something; I am
busy now;” then your mother grabbed
Ali, and she smote you on the brow. Ah,
it did me good to watch her—just to hear
her grind her teeth, was like sitting at a
window while the band plays underneath!
Haroun Ali, son of Osman, you will never
have a friend, who will love you like a
mother, fully, strongly, to the end; when
her eyes have closed forever and her
worn feet are at rest, when her weary
hands are folded, still and pulseless on
her breast, when her gentle spirit is jour
neyipg o’er the silent river’s wave, when
the wind at midnight murmurs through
the willows o’er here grave, you will sor
row, Haroun Ali, beg forgiveness from
above, that your mother ever heard you
utter words that breathed not love.—

The Bridges Bros, closed their conven
tion, Tuesday evening, with a concert in
the Lutheran church, which was well at
tended, and which contained many en
joyable features. The work of the class
indicated that the efforts of these gentle
men had been crowned with quite a
measure of success. A choral union was
formed after the concert with Mr. A. H.

in the Lutheran church on Tuesday even
ing of each week, to continue the good
work set in motion by the convention.
The exhibition and lecture given by
representatives of the J. I. Case Plow Co.,
Monday afternoon, called together a
large crowd of farmers. Tests were made
of the draught, depth etc., of the furrow
of a Moline plow and the J. I. Case fa
mous Triumph sulky plow. Considerable
interest was taken in this by the farm
ers present. The result was entirely
satisfactory, and in favor of the Triumph
sulky plow, which made a wider and
deeper furrow than the walking plow
with about the same power. Many new
and valuable suggestions were dropped
by Mr. Kiser in his interesting talk on
plows and plowing. Much interest cen
tered in the pulling of the sulky plow by
a man in harness. This feat was success
fully and easily accomplished, a furrow
being run some distance six or seven
inches deep and sixteen or eighteen
inches wide. The “mule” carried a man
on his back, and a man rode on the plow.
Henry Hamilton also performed the act,
showing that there was no special trick
connected with the pulling of the plow.
The affair was withal profitable to all
parties concerned.
