"" " ' t 1 . : i- •!'• Oar Hirer and Harbor Tonn*fc«. Our lake, river and coastwise tonnage amounts to nearly 4,000,000 tons. The present marvelous cheapness of water transportation is of inestimable value to the people in enabling that .transportation to compete with railroads and to regulate their tfharges. Naturally the demand foi the improvement of the lake harbors, ol connecting streams and canals, and of the immense water courses of this country haa increased, in its importunity with the increase of this commerce; but the increasing appropriations in the river and harbor bills are not even yet one->alf as large as the amounts proposed by the engineer board.— Senator Frye in Forum.

WALLPAPER The Largest Stock, The Lowest Prices, • At Hyde's Drug Store, ! Prompt Justice. In the "History of Beverly," Mass., the following anecdote is related of a good justice of the peace in the old colonial times. On a cold night in winter a. traveler called at his house for lodging. The ready hospitality of the justice was about being displayed, when the traveler unluckily uttered a word which his host considered profane. Upon this he informed his guest that he was a magistrate, pointed out the nature if the offense, and explained the necessity jf its being expiated by sitting an hour in the stocks. Remonstrance was unavailing, for custom et that time allowed the magistrate to convict rfnd punish at once, and in this case he acted as accuser, witness, jury, judge and sheriff, all in one. Cold as it was, our worthy justice, aided by his son, conducted the traveler to the place of punishment, an open place near the meeting house where the stocks weft placed. Here the traveler was confined in the usual manner, the benevolent executor of the law remaining with him to beguile the time of its tedium by edifying conversation. At the expiration of the hour he was re- conducted to the house and hospitably entertained till the next •morning, when the traveler departed with, let us hope, a de ; termination to consider hjs words more carefully before giving them utterance in the hearing of a conscientious magistrate. —Youth's Companion. Money and Postal Orders. The money orders issued by the postoffio had their origin in a private speculation by three postofflce officials,' who began the system in 1793. At that, time, however, no order could be issued for more than five guineas, and the charge for sending that amount was 4s. 6d. The system was taken over by the postofflce in 1838, and the five guineas for whlclrte. 6d. was charged in 1792 can now be sent for fivepence. Postal orders are but a decade old. Their issue was begun in 1881, and since then their popularity has increased year by year, so much so, indeed, that in business circles postal x orderB now frequently pass through many hands as a medium of exchange before being presented for conversion into cash at the postofflce counter.—Chambers' Journal. • Ask your grocer for Ripe Creek mills flour or call at the mill and get a sack. t ^ - - tf.

N. Y. Potting Decoy Ducks. It is said that all true sportsmeu-abhor a pot hunter, and that no gentleman will pot a duck. But they all do it. I have done it myself. I have seen the best of them sneaking on to decoys, and have had the pleasure of protesting against some of the most blatant taking a shot at mine. A short time ago, in one of my rambles, I came suddenly upon a fine flock of mftllards feeding in a little secluded pond near Columbia slough. Fortunately I was not discovered, . fTvrt quietly drew back!where I could study the situation. My Imagination camj to my aid, and I could see the ducks swimming gracefully around, feeding leisurely, entirely unconscious of my presence and the Impending danger. I observed that by going around to the left I could come up behind a little clump of willows within easy range of the game. ' ° . Here was a pudding and no mistake. With the stealthy tread of a cat I approached my unsuspecting victims. I even 'got down and crawled. I was nearly to the willows, and peered cautiously through them to make sure. The first thing that met my view was a dog sitting there under a leaning willow on hip haunches', demurely looking out .over the pond., and the next tbing I saw was a man quietly lighting bis pipe. JW&say that I sneaked back and •way—clear away from that pond—ia putting it modestly, and Friend H. does not know to this day bpwnear I cametopot- t&MC bi» ibool of decoy ducks.—Forest and NDecker & Son, of Battle Creek, have secured Mrs. Farr, of Chicago, as manager of their dress making department.
