It will ba established In Cbinstown, in New Tork, and will bo a curiosity. It will run on tho savings bank p!nn. Montana, Washington, North Dakota and South Dakota, stand up and be counted. We' hereby declare you in tho (Union fully, making four more of us. You arc now at liberty to go ahead and pile a grent and imposing state debt upon your shoulders, like the rest of us. How are you anyhow? We are glad to see you again, Stovepipe Joke. You come to us fresh and smiling as ever, perennial as the morning. For two months you will bo with us, and then you will pass again into six months o: •well earned retirement. You are doubly •welcome, because while you are in tho mother-in-law joke is out The Gooso Bone Prophet. We knew it. \Vo knew tho vcncrabli gray goose bone prophet would make hi appearance simultaneously with tho fal of the leaf and tho stovepipe joke. The true bono is the sharp blade from the breast of a goose that was hatched in spring, and has a trace of wild blood. row of dots around the keel of the bon forecasts the weather. The darker thes npots, the colder the weather will be Contrary to corn husk lore, the gooi bone says there will bo a very mild wir ter. "There will not be many days 1 T?hich runni n£ water, will "free?,*," T'Tli ^BOlUBBb Vvt?tttiit;i will cuuio tnu Ufcfciei' null of January, and the coldest day of all •will be Jan. 27. Tho January thaw will come in February, and there will be disastrous floods and dam bursting, and the . fiend to pay generally. After that we •hall have an early spring. We ought to. And now we hear frnm the Health omratB^ioncr. o£;r>aU;i, I fi'ifmme. Yet what he has to do with the put- njt in tho sewer eystcrn, I do not un- eratnnd). He eaya the sewer in con- roversy ia only Intended for carrying ater. Now if he will only inform tho ublic what ia to become of tho filth rom water closets and slops from tho more than twenty buildinga which are o be beneflttcd by this enwer, each uiidlng averaging one family besides he stores, they may see it as he does, rnps are necessary to prevent the oul air of tho sewer from entering the ouses, but does not prevent the flow f tilth from water closets, etc., to the ewer. I may not know aa much as he Health Commissioner, who comes o the defense of the small sewer ays- i, yet Ihaye had some experience with sewers and drains leading there- Conundrum: If a 10-inch sewer is arge enough to carry the flow from 20 buildings, why has the city gone to the unnecessary expense of putting in a 10-inch drain to connect the city hall with.the sewer, and why does the C. B. &Q.B.B. Co. put in a 12-in.Bewer in ;helr passenger yard to the main sewer ? THOM A s A. G ALT. The Arsenic Fashion. The llaybrick trial in Liverpool and the testimony given in evidence that old 'Maybrick used arsenic and whisky for a tonic, and Mrs. Maybrick used the same poison for her complexion, have had a curious result. It has stimulated the sale of arsenio cocktails and complexion •wafers to an unheard of extent in Amer-> iea aa well as in Europe. Other fools of Jioth sexes desire to teat tho Maybrick irecipes for themselves. Arsenic nostrums for both tho inside and outside of ; the human animal are plentiful on tho market. Thero are probably women crazy enough to try any means under the eon to secure a good complexion, except the one method prescribed by nature and hygiene. ' An unusual crimo or out of tho way achievement of any sort is sure to find plenty of imitators. This fact aeems to favor the presumption that mankind are descended from the monkey. —The famous stallion, Axtell, beat his record of 2:14, at Terra Haute yes terday in 2:12 and was soon after sold to a syndicate for$l05,000. This Is the highest price ever paid in the world fo: any horse. The former owner of Ax tell, Mr. Williams, of Independence Iowa, is a lucky man. —"Washington Tost: The reception extended by Mrs. Electa £.

In the incipient Btnto of ouch discuses it ia even said to be a powerful aid to a cure. It is, indeed, fiomeTrbat curioua that the medical fraternity have not exploited the theory of lung exercises by singing more fully heretofore than they nre now doinc;, for the nction of calisthenics in developing tho cheat and of gymnastics in strengthening muscular tissues have, for years been a universal practice, although as a matter of fnct the mere physical exercise of singing brings into play an extraordinary number of muscles that can hardly bo suspected of action in connection with the throat expansion. It was disclosed by statistics tn Italy some years ago that vocal artists were usually long lived and healthy, and that brass instrument players, who bring their lungs and chest into unusual activity, have not had a consumptive victim among them. No matter how thin or -weak the voice, children or young people should be encouraged to indulgt in song. Thero can bo no happier meal- cine, and if hearers soraetimesuffer, thoy should bo encouraged and strengthened to bear tho infliction in view«of tho good it may occasion. — New York Tribune. iKorUvi E. o.Ook.i MILWAUKEE BEER, 'Select" "Export" "liohcmian" and "Lager Beer."

In admiration not unmingled with awe they gazed upon Yankee cotton mills, Yankee carpet, hosiery and woolen mills. They inspected thread factories and shoe and silk factories, edge tool works and the Waltham Watch company's buildings. They gazed on the gilded top of the Massachusetts •tate house.

Dr. B. C. Mt-Daiilols, of Atlanta, declared that the complaint was imaginary, and not real, and, for himsolf, that a man who refuses fellowship to a man because ho is black is not a Christiau. After a long discussion it was voted to admit the white delegates, thoy promising to give tho Georgia colored men the right hand of fellowship hereafter. 1 — ' -'-' Our (Dress Goods Sale for the past iwo we*. has hen a and we shall continue at the same pr-ia Underwear for Gent's, at 23c, worth 4:0c.

LONDON, Oct. 12.—The rector of Gwaonvs- gon, in Wales, ia a man ot more than ordinary energy and enterprise: In attempting to collect the tithes duo him and which the people are not disposed to pay, he headed a party of bailiffs Thursday, who were sent to protect the auctioneer in attempt to distrain. The auctioneer had boon driven off three •timas^wuilo—making—similar—attempts;" and when it became known that lie proposed again to enter the farms, assisted by the bailiffs and tho rector himsolf, a large crowd armed with sticks assembled 'and,made a desperate attack upon the distinguished party. The Parson Fought Nobly. The rector fought nobly In defense of his rights, and with a heavy club, which he wielded with great dexterity, |u> felled four of his flock to the earth. TheT)allifrN, however, showed less ffrit, and fled with the auctioneer from the fltiU, so that the enterprising rector was forced to yield. Ha now declares that he might as well turn pirate out- and-out as to attempt to co'lect the tithe* due him from the stubborn Welsh farmers. The Tcmplant* ISucampment.
