Miss Rose Gushing, Rock Falls, Sept. 10th. . 02 tf —The question walks is one which will come up for serious discussion in the city council before long. As it now is, there are forty miles of board walks which have to be repaired and rebuilt frequently. A system of "permanent" walks which would last half a century, would be much cheaper. Aid. Plait remarked in the council Inst night that a walk which will laat fifty years, can be built of brick, with Cleveland stone curbing, at less cost than a plank walk... If permanent walks can be figured as low as that, the soo'ner they are put down the better. It will save the city a bill for repairs of several thousand of dollars each year. —A'number of residents and property owners of First avenue, between t'.li and 8th streets met In the council rooms yesterday afternoon, and voted t> petition the council to allow them to use asphaltum for their termanent walks, to be built.according to ordinance. At the council meeting in the evening, the petition was granted. The City Attorney prepared an ordinance in relation to this Improvement, which was adopted.' The walks are to be of regulation width, five feet, and have suitable curbing, an'l are to be laid as per surveys made. If they are laid within the time required by ordinance, the city will pay a rebate of 5 cents per square foot. The walks are to be built along the length of the street, and paid for by special assessment on the property owners. The work will probably be done by contract and is to begin at once. —Mr. Wm.

These boys deserve punishment. -«-There were 301 pupils entered at the Rock Falls school on Monday* which is more'than last year.

Toward tlio close of tho lash century this captain sailed from Portluml with n carp;o of lumber for Han Domins". Arriving at his destination, ha found Toiissnint, tho ticuro lender, in possession of tho island and was nfraid to land. As ho was about to put to soa ap;ain his ship was boarded by a squad of negro troops under command of 'tho renowned Christophc, ami ui-Red to land, as lumber was much needed on tho island. Noticing that the ship's papers bearing tho autograph of tho president of tho United Statwt, ns was tho custom in those days, made a great impression on Christophe, tho captain concluded to fry theircfTcct on Toussaint. Accordingly ho landed, and, furnished with an escort by Christopho,. marched to tho camp of tho leader. This personage U]Kin being told that a messenger with a letter from tho president of tho United States desired an interview with him, readily accorded it, and the result of tho interview was that tho lumber was ox- changed for an equal quantity of coffee, sugar and other goods of tho captain's selection.." exchanging bulk for bulk.

Col. W.atson, of the Street Railway Co., was present and stated that the company desired the streets leveled, so that riding in the cars would not seem like riding over ridges in a corn field. He wished to know if the city would require the road to be built at grade or on the present level of the streets. Aid. Platt stated that it would be a very expensive piece of work to place the streets at grade, and would cost about 810,000, if not more. Besides, he thought it best to wait until the aewers were completed along the route before a permanent grade was completed. To do this work It would be necessary to remove all the macadam on the etreef, remore or fill In a eulllclent amount of earth under the macadam, and then replace the macadam. The aldermen desired to place the streets in proper condition for the street railway tracka. but did not wieb. to go to 810,000 expense tbU ji>ar wheu lira. H. A. LlnebacU's Htateraent.

An oyster ami clam dealer on Vesoy street set out a basket of fresh clams in front of his store the other ilay ami tacked up a neat little card announcing tho price. A bootblack sauntered by swinging his box and brushes and gently transferred one of the luscious bivalves Into his pocket. A newsboy standing, near observed the net, and in a secnml ho had imitated the bootblack's action with gratifying success. The boys both grinned, crossed over to the other side of the stn-et and innocently strolled up the block. In another moment they again passed the basket, and again rewarded themselves with another clam. Six times did "Hid gamins pass tho basket, and not once did they miss their prize. Kails. A policeman lounged on tho opposite of the ttreet iu full view of the piratical expeditions across the way. Filially ono of tho boys, probably having come to tho conclusion that honesty was tho best policy, turned his clams over to his partner and disappeared in n neighboring stall. Ho reappeared in n few minutes with a small sign rending, "Take one," which he deftly substituted fcr tho price list He then went in and innocently informed the proprietor that some wicked boy had changed his sign and that ho would soon be out a basket of clams. When the proprietor saw the sign and the diminished, number of clams ho thanked the boy warmly and told him to take a pocketful for himself. -New York World. Witches' Plants. Iu most countries certain plants arc to be found associated with witches anil their craft. Shakespeare causus ono of his witches to discourse of root of "hemlock dlgg'd i' the dork;" likewise also of "slips of yew silver'd In tho moon's eclipse." Vervain was in olden times known as "the enchanter's plant;" rue, again, was regarded as an antidote against their Bpells and machination*. Their partiality for certain trees is well knoVvn. According to Grimm, the trysting place of tho Neapolitan witches was « walnut tree near Bonowuto. In walnut and elder trt-es they are also said to bo in tho habit of lurking at night fall. Witches, too, hail their favorite flower*. Among the*o the. foxglove, was known as tho "witches* bells;" the harebell as tiso "witches' thimbles." Tradition assert.*! that on moonlisht nights they might be icon Hying through the air, mounted on tho itoni'i o( tho ragwort, r«v»1a or tm!ru.-4u«.
