leaving about four feet above the paving for a hitching post. About six inches from the top of the post a lirnb of the tree was sawed off and it projects seven or eight inches making a very comfortable rest for a tired man's ICR as well as a preventative to the hitching strap-Clipping up. Here when business slack's up a little and he can get an audience Mr. Glassbrcnner throws his tired leg over the projecting limb and tells all comers how the country can be saved, the principal influences to effect salvation, according to him, being the election of Teddy and Deiieen and the sending of Gov. Yates to the United States senate to represent Illinois. He also tells how he will gve a set of harness free to the farmer whose team can jerk his new post out of the ground as they have done all other ones he had.
