The most entertaining part of the meetings that ha*» btwm h«UJ h** b«en tha »iuf tug by visitor*, including * govern w*oS ttd a —Mr. W. D. Nichols, proprietor of the Nichols Wind Mill Co., of Elgin, is here looking for a location for his factory. The building he occupied at Elgin is an old one in the business part of town and the owners are about to tear it down and put up stores,^o Tie lias To find another locatiau. Mr. W. M. Dillon has one.of his wind mills upon his farm. Mr. Nichols has just completed an improved mill and one of monster size has recently been put up on the farm of Bernard Johnson, a prominent German of Montmorency. Mr. Nichols has had such a good trade in his new mill that he expects to employ .fifty or more men as soon as he linds a suitable building. "We have several buildings here adapted for Mr,. Nichol's purpose, and we hope he may llnd a place and locate here. —A base ball crank says: "Base ball is the greatest game on earth, but there is one great objection to it, and that is the power of the umpire. His calling of balls and strikes, allow him to give the game to either nine when the teams are well matched. Now, I have a patent that will, do away with this objectionable feature. It is a propelling machine which will allow the man who stands in the box to throw every ball over the plate. He can elevate or lower it so as to throw a ball anywhere between the knee and the waist.-The velocity of _ the ball can be regulated and the team with the beat catcher can throw the swiftest ball. Only three balls will be thrown over the plate and the striker must strike or run. Of course there will be more balls batted, but this will require more skillful playing in the Bold. The game will not then go to the nine whose pitcher can the most befuddle the umpire. My ball tosser will'Create a sensation in base ball -circles, and I expect to make big money out of it." —Our former townsman, Mr. E. W. Edson, has hadjiis lines to fall on pleasant places. In all America there is no region which excels in beauty and grandeur of the country around about Klamath Springs, Cal. He and his brother are joint properitors of the hotel and mud baths, the former of which is becoming noted for its excellent cuisine and the latter for their health- restoring properties. A recent article of considerable length in the San Fran- clso Daily Report extols the Springs and hotel in highest terms and pays the following compliment to Mr. Ep. Edson: "Ep. Etiaon is the Edson of Edson Brothers. Although on the- shady side of life, judged by his years, he is gay of heart and light of foot as a boy, and looks after the comfort of visitors. Hejis one of the few, alas! toofew.men in the country who reaily know how to keep a hotel. He does not depend upon the hired help for the quick service which the people long for but seldom get. Hatleas and ooatless he rushes to andf ro.now milking the cows.next looking after team, then after bathing facilities, always doing something, yet always ready to do something else." The healthy location, pure, bracing.yet mild «lr of Klamath Springs, only twenty- four houra from San Francisco, has restored Mrs. Kdson'a health and Mr. Edson has become, as the Dally Report saas, r«>j uvenated in the buay life he leads beneath the shadow of the great Count range of mountains. We know the many readers of the UAZXTTK who count Mr. au<l Mrs. Kdson among their frlemia will ixs gratified tt> Usaru of their Mr. ftiirl Miss ITowe, who have h<-pn visiiinfjat Mr. W..II.

The three imperials in this city inform us that they are too overcrowded with laundry work to observe the occasion. —The rcinstrels last night were not up to expectation. The clog dancing and the female impersonations were very good, but the rest of the show was below the average. In fact there was an absence of that vim which is necessary to make a show entertaining. The warmth and the too early opening of the season probably accounts for it. —The wife of the latn'A. J. Madison! of Prophetstown, met with a and death near Denver, Colorado, whither she had gone to escape the hay fever. She was out driving In a carriage and the horses scared and ran away, which resulted in her being thrown out and killed. This occurred a few days ago.

A. R. members are requested to meet at their post room at 8:15 and the members of Co. E at the armory at 8 o'clock. There will be a large attendance from here. It will be a gathering long to be remembered, as so many men of prominence will be present; Gov. Filer, Gen. Henderson and others. • —Keeping pace with the many public improvements going on in our city, viz., the electric light system, tho elec trio street railway and many others looking to the welfare of the general public, N. Carpenter <&f(.'o., the active and enterprising dry goods house of W. 3rd St., have had erected in their beautiful store, the wonderful cash railway on a new plan, the double track and through train; a great invention. " Call and see it~in operation. —The meeting of Will Robinson Post was reasonably well attended last night, and some of those who attended the encampment at Milwaukee gave a laughable description of their trip. Commander Harrison and S. V. C. Van Sant were appointed a committee to secure a place in the soldier's home, either al Quincy or Milwaukee, for Comrade Reeves, who has been sick for some time, at the home of S.S. Lukens, in Rock Falls. The boys are very en- thuaiaatic over the good time expected at Amboy tomorrow and there will be a large turn out if the weather is favorable.

Exictly Mow tho terrible ar.ridcnt (veurred will probably n"ver ho known as no one saw tho younj; man fall and the first intelligence of his death was the finding of his fearfully mangled remains on the railroad track. He was a brakeman on the Illinois Central and the last seen of him was by tho engineer who thinks in returning to the rear of the train from tho cib of the engine he must have fallen between the cars and wan run over. Mr. Lewis w-!S aged thirty-three years; and in thU his aad and untimely death, leaves a wife and two little children. It is not long Binco we announced that Mr. Lewis bad met with v;hat was nt the time supposed to be a fata, accident by being knocked from the train by a bridge near LnSalle, where he was pick- eil up by the side of thn track In a senseless conaition. The fates appeared to be against him. —A Jollet dispatch gives the following account of the escape of a man sent up from this county: The Joliet prison was beat last night for the lirst time i.. many years by two convicts working In'the stone saw-mill. The men were kept out to keep the engines running until 9 p. m. to run the stone saws. An officer and a foreman were in charge of a gang of four convicts.
