The train waa on Its way west. The man was cut la two, falling under the cars in some way. The railroad authorities are making an iffort to find out where his home Is, and f he has any relatives. —A meeting was held in the council room on Saturday evening to discuss plans for holding a celebration here atJout the time the street railway, city hall, etc., are completed. A resolution was passed voting upon the city council the duty of being the executive committee to have general charge of the matter. Some of the speakers desired to have a big celebration to advertise the town. Others, less enthusiastic, thought an entertainment at which a small admission fee be charged for the library benefit, would be the proper thing. A b'g blow out would cost about a thousand dollars, more or less, and would probably include a banquet to distinguished guests present, an industrial parade, illustrating the industries of the city, a pyrotechnic display, ringing of all the bells and whistles for a while, orations by prominent speakers, etc., etc. As it is not known when the street railway will be completed, aud as the weather bnreau will not contract to 'furnIshraTnlce warm-day for any particular date in November, it is difficult to lay definite plans for anything so far ahead. —Last Saturday about noon, two fisherman discovered the corpse of a man floating in the river near the Dixon bridge. The body was soon identified as that of Henry S. Palmer, an old settler of Dixon. He had been living for the paet year with his son In Ch'cs go; but on Monday last he came to Dixon for the purpose of attending the soldiers' reunion in Amboy. He belonged to the 22d 111. Infantry. From the Telegraph we learn that he was seen in the evening in Oak Park ceme- t9ry, weeping over his late wife's grave, and it Is supposed that in his fa tigue he must have fallen asleep and did not wake for several hours, as the next seen of him was at A. L. Fisher's shoe shop, on Golena street, where he knocked long after midnight, and was admitted. Mr. Fisher, who vas the laat to see him on that fatal night, says he made injury for Captain Reardon and when directed to his residence Mr. Palmer .otarted for North Dixon. There are two theories as to the cause of his death. One is that he was murdered and the other that be may have, in the dark of the night, turned to the right soon after crossing the bridga, and fallen into the river from the steep bank somewhere east of the meat market. It appears |that the bead and face are more severely bruised than -would result from falling down the bank into -the river; and, furthermore, it appears that his pockets were empty of all valuables^ not a cent of money being found. As he came here on a visit, it is very probable that be had money with him. Indeed, those who know him best, claim that he generally carried some money with him. It is not believdd by anyone who knew him to be a case of suicide. --Fn-d Mercer, employed in Johnson & Mercer's meat murket, reccivd a bad kick on the left arm from a horse on Saturday. —IVter Oclentlml, a retired farmer, now.livin^at Humphrey .'Neb., ia visiting friends here. He resided here a few yeara ago. —The canning factory is having a big rush witti tomatoes, and although a hirge force of womon is given employment, there is work for many more. —The dynamos and some other of the electrical machines for the street railway are here, and will soon be put. in place at the water work's station. —When the Ogle county papers have nothing else to talk about, they talk about a new court house. The buildings at Oregon are a disgrace. The Hoard of Supervisors at its next meeting will probably take so ue action in th'e matter. They may submit to a vote of the people, a proposition to bond the county for §80,000 to. .erect suitable buildings. —Dealers state that the price of coal is likely to advance by October 1st, as there is no money In the present rates. Freight rates are generally advanced about this time of the year and with the scarcity of vessels which will prevail as the time for the close of lake navigation approaches, coal consumers who delay putting in the winter's supply of fuel may find themselves compelled to pay stiff prices. —The Standard Theatre Co. will open at the Academy of Music tonight with the ever popular comedy of "Function." This company tnade many friends during their visit here last June and gave the best of satisfaction. Miss Blanche Slader, who stars with this company this season, is.known over the entire country as a very clever soubre te and has appeared in all the principal cities. She was here with Ambercrombie'a Uncle Tom's Cabin Co., about eight years ago, and is said by those who remember her. to have been by far the best ••Topsy" ever seen in this city. Mr. llamage states that his Company is much more expensive than last season, but he still keeps prices down to ten and twenty cent,s. Why do i-eopln buy furniture at tli Rock Frills furniture store?

Hennepin canal suggested In his report to the Secretary of War that it was beat that the head of the feeder which is to tap Kock river here at Dixon, should conduct the water through a conduit to the navagable portion of the feeder. That is; he proposed to run the Water under ground beneath Water street> from the dam, in some sort of an immense pipe, to a basin that is to be the head of navigation" on the canal feeder at a point west and near the Illinois Central railroad, in West Dixon. The Major, as the writer learned from • a conversation with him, appeared to be very much in favor of this plan. We are pleased to note that Engineer G. A. M. Llljencrantz, who has now charge of the survey, is decidedly in favor of making an open water channel from the dam, which he proposes to make by building a wall in the river a proper distance from the shore, to run parallel with the bank and far enough from it to make a good and sufficient channel from the dam to the canal basin. This is certainly a much more substantial and business like mode of building a canal through our city. Engineer Lil- jencrantz was yesterday with his men occupied in taking soundings along the south shore of the river and extending his examination some seventy or eighty feet Into the channel. He will also maks a survey by boring into the bed of tha river at different places along the share, following ihe in«a«d<srlng of the bank from the dam to West DUon, lu order to learn the situation of the tock, Iw tieVj>U» from ti*w amrfsc*. astids a heavy wals (or Uie river slJw of -i-The B. and L, society meets this evening. . -*-Frunk Cochran, of Aurorn, was in town this week. -4-Isaac I.

Holt and another low bum named George Gassenachmldt procured a keg of beer and carried It to Holt's home to drink It. Halt's wife objected to having a carouse in her house, and he brutally beat her luto subjection. Holt should be severely dealt with by the officers. For sale or rent, at E. \V. Blossom's No. ir, East Third Street, N.O ono knows just how or where ll came from or why it came, but a enowy and swci't breathed intruder has come into llic city to dispute- with the lordly sunflower his loni; ami undisputed title of Bquattcr sovereignly to all vhe vacant lots and blocks in Council Blurts, Iowa. And the meek liltlu Uossornson the summits of the sweet clover plants are looking upon, the swift and certain destruction of the pioneer sunflower. Over one- third of the-hottouis, where a year ago nothing but the- gigantic resinous weed turned its black and yellow faco to the sun, and where it grew in such luxury that even the noxious cockle burr waa choked out of existence, the fragrant sweet clover has appeared and holds un disputed dominion over every other green thing. Over hundreds of vacant lots in tho new additions the tiresome yellow has given place to the dark, rich foliage and fragrant perpetually blooming sweet clover. Local botanists who have examined the new plant with a good deal of in tefestrand~carG~Bay that it la 'positively "sr now species, produced by some unknown and accidental cross, and that its vigor and spreading proclivities are the most wonderful features of its nature. The old fashioned sweet clover was a frail aud ghostly plant, that loved the friendly shade of the groves and tho longest moonlight summer nights, a characteristic .which made it a proper love emblem, but this now and thrifty product of Council Bluffs spurns the protection of the trees and goes out boldly in the fields and incuts and conquers tho sun loving sunflower in his chosen grounds As a foliage plant it is perhaps one of the most remarkable in existence for its luxuriance. In many respects it resembles tho alalfa clover, but it ia stronger, thriftier, and of much more rapid growth than that remarkable plant that furnishes three crops of hay a year iii western territories. It grows to the height of four or fiye feet, with a dense leafy'foliage and a perfect brush of sweet scented blossoms. The leaf is small and juicy, of a rich dark green, very much resembling the red clover. It is so now and its habits so little understood that it is not known what its value may bo as n forage plant for stock. In its present rank character stock will not eat it, but, tamed by repeated clipping aud cultivation, it may become ono of the most valuable plants to tho stockmen and farmers. .
