Max O'Rell in Nortb American ieview for May: I have said that nqaisitiveness wfts the chief Ameri•.an trait, and that it arose from the ohildish character of a man who be- <mgs to a great, successful, but ,-oung nation. Are there no other ;raits", more or less typical of Ameri;an manners, arising from the same janse? I bplieve there are. Generosity, impulsiveness, forgiveness and—excuse the word—cheek are \mong thorn. The American runs wildly after the dollar, but he is .avish of it; he does not love it; he .ikes it for what it procures; and ivarice, which you so often find in .England and in France, is a vice— an ugly yice—that you very seldom ind in an American. He will resent an insult, hut very quickly forgets t; and there is 110 man in the word that can stand good-humored chaffing as well as he does. He s audacious, simply because he has done such marvelous things in such a shovt time that he simply believes nothing is impossible to him. His dens are eccentric, but eccentricity s only an exaggerated form of the actirity of mind. He lives on a continent so vast that he can .hardly see a limit to it. He has the •word "big" carved on the cranium, and as it is a wonder that sometimes the word is so deeply carved that it makes a hole or crack in it? I repeat it, I have never discovered the typical American, although I have discoved traits that are characteristic) of most Americans, and, as for American gentlemen, I have never been able to distinguish them from English or French gentlemen. The aristocracy of nature is universal. OUR, FLAG. The Account on It» Travels Over the State. Go to Hanna for screen wire. Hosiery and underwear, the Ha- ilerdas;her has all kinds.

C. * Patterson, the Haberdasher, surprises all callers with his many novelties in fine furnishings. CHAS. R. GORMAN. The above excellent likeness of Charles R. Gorman, the president and business manager of the Groriuan Wheel and Novelty company, will be readily recognized by the many friends the young inventor and expert machinist has formed in this city during bis few months residence here. Coming here as he did a few months since, relying wholly on his energy and the merit of his inventions, organized the company, of which he is the enterprising head, for the manufacture of bicycles, wheels and novelties. The company has now got fairly to work and much local inteiest is aroused in regard to the unexcelled make of bicycles which bear Mr. Gorman's patents. Charles R. G-orman is an Englishman and has been iu this country for the past four years. He served a.n apprenticeship of seven years under the English government and when that term closer! was declared one of the luost expert machinists in England aud at present bears the honor of being the youngest patentee in that country. He was for several years manager of the Royal Mail Bicycle Works at Birmingham, England, and the well known wheel made at that place was much improved by the addition of his patents. His patents cover a large number of well known appliances in wheels, bicycle?,milling machinery, drills, etc., and have been taken out in England, Germany, France and the United State 0 . At the Tjondon exposition of 1830, Mr. Gorman received the prize medal for exhibiting the highest grade of machinery. Expert wheelmen who have examined Mr. Gormrn's patent improved safety bicycle unhesitatingly pronounce it superior in many valuable points to any machine they have had any experience with and the sale of these wheels promises to be be very large when the factory is opened to its fullest capacity. As has been before mentioned, Mr. Gorman has received every encouragement to organize a Wheelman's club here, and he now proposes to form the club, furnish free instructions to all members and give an entertainment at the rink in a few weeks. Mr. FredMinneman and Miss Lena Kardes were united in marriage at St. Joseph's church Thursday evening at 9 o'clock, Rev. Father Koehne officiating.

A MOMENT'S CHAT VI H One ar Onr Jiiuk Dralci-M Alient TTriule; Flrfi XiasuraiK'r. Ktv. |Suid a junk dealer, yeatsrduy: i' : You will rarely" Iiutii' of <t jimlc (idler tailing in bttbiuuss if he .sticks <j> that business and don't meddle <}ith speculation on the outside. A reat many people imagine there is o mom;y in the .junk, business, imply because v;u buy and ell what other people throw' way. Hugs are not as high :i price now as they were several ears ago becauso the cheaper grades of paper aad paste hoard are •ow manufactured from woodpulp nd straw, but still there is sale for 11 the linen rags and junk of that ort that we can get, for use in naking the finer grades of writing paper and paper for ithograph work. A junk dealer subjeet to great danger of oss f oui fire, beeauso very few deal- rs can stand the heavy preuiiums nsurnnca companies charge. They must have a big premium becauso of he danger of spontaneous coinbus- ion. The heat generated from voolen rags, especially if they are greasy and damp, is something astonishing. I have frequently been iompelled to use a fork or a stick o handl* rags that wers ightly packed, into a barrel or boi when damp; the heat generated 'ver night being too great to admit of heir being taken out by hand. Then again it will occur that the people who are hired to sort the rags and who are generally great smokers are lot as careful as they might be, and a spark dropped into a pile of rags nay smoulder and burn at the bot- om of the pile for a week before it Bursts into flames. Being aware of Jiese facts underwriters naturally want big premiums for taking big risks. A Ilalatcd (Sensation. H. C. Lester, who at one time conducted a seeond-hand store here, allies to the front with a rather sensational story, which, although be- .ated about a week, is none the less interesting. It appears that he aud liie wife got into some difficulty and she apparently controliog the finances of the firm wrote him out a check, as ho now declares, for $200 and told him to get liim tience. This he proceeded to do, but before he got out of town claims that he was held up and robbed of the money and other contents of his pockets. The startling part of Lester's story is the statement that the highway robbery was done by a policeman, whom Lester knows, but, strangely enough, refuges to give up. This story lie told to the Mayor, admitting that at the time of the extraordinary occurrence he was full of both opium and whiskey, but still retained sufficient sense to recognize the fact that his pockets had been emptied. Lester reported the case to the mayor aud also told detective Silas Morgan concerning the affair. Lester departed tbe neitdayfor Lafayette but he writes to Morgan that if he can find tha highwayman, he will divide the money with both him and the light- fingered gent, and no questions will be asked the latter. Morgan is working on the case, but with little hopes of success. Lester's story is not credited by the officers, and it is thought he was so full of booze thai he might have lost his money and not known it. The Barnett hotel is undergoing •xteusive improvements. A handsome variegated marble floor is be- iug laid in the office and reading room. The eutire building is being wired for the incandescent sys tern of electric light, and the wooden feuce which separatee the hotel property from the adjoining property on tbe east has given way to a neat an i tasty iron fence. Altogether Mr. Barnett ia spending money generously to rendei his hostelry pleasant and invitinp to the traveling public, who will no doubt appreeiate bis efforts for their comfort. ^ Xti'al KstHtu 'fl.'rnnM'er».
