Will Wells, editor of tho Alton Democrat, had a hearing Inst week before United Stales Commissioner Henderson for violation of tho postal laws.

Within two years' time it is expected that tho llnost ships of this lino will bo in eomniision and will bo tho llnost ships over built in tho world, tho onggrogato cost amounting to twelve million dollars. A Davenport, man whose- proficiency at liddledy winks gave him the lumby prize sat down and vented bis disgust as follows: Tiddledy winks is the title of the latest fool game. It is played with tlddledums which are 11 red with u linger Into a wink cuspidor. Uach player has a few diddle- dnms, a deukllity ami a dingus. Tnko a wink, put It on u dingus, then snap the wink from the dingus Into the wink pot. If you succeed you are entitled to a dellk!dlt v y anil for every wink you jump into the wink pot from the dmnlnkoi-dumdornin, you count a detlkkilty, and continue so to operate tinkle- winkle upon tho pollywoigthero until tho pots so curried shall equal the total and the linpwop multiplied by tlio putorluk turn and added to the contents of the wlnklofuidar- iums. The less brains you have tho better you play. Andrew Schissel of Iowa City, n widower of 75 years, has missed the delights of lingering courtship In his second mnrriago, for ho met, wooed and won his present wife in live minutes. Two weeks ago Saturday ho presented himself at the kitchen door of Adam Mueller, of his town, nnd Introduced himself to Mrs. Kessler, a widow of 4fi there at work.

Clarke thinks Cleveland not available as presidential candidate and would prefer a man from tho northwest. In his opinion tho nominee should como from tho northwest in recognition of tho work of democracy in currying flvo states which have hitherto boon conaidorod hopelessly republican. Cleveland's letter on tho silver question cuts no figure either one way or tho other. His position on that question was well understood before ho wrote that letter, which will only result in making those friendly to him more friendly, and those opposed to him moro active in their opposition. ________ Mr. Pratt wns defeated for mayor of What Cheer by llfty-flvo majority, because ho would not pledge himself to tho saloon crowd and their Interest. They got out a wicked report that Mr. Pratt attended tho M. E. church, and said that if ho was elected ho would close every saloon in ono month. Since tho election Mr. Pratt in a published card, denies tho "foolish yarn," so wo infer that ho had not intended to close tho saloons if elected, Tlio saloon seems to bo pretty solid at What Cheor. Since people have to die wo wonder that heaven don't first kill oft the menu ones, says Sam Clarke.

Jones will sell tho McCormick harvesting machines this year. Ho tolls us that tho McCormick company aro obliged to make at tho rate of ono complete machine every minute of tho clay in order to supply their world- widu demand—tho McCormiok being almost as well known on tho steppes of Russia, the plains of tho Danube, and in tho winter harvests of tho southern hemisphere, Australia, South America, and South Africa, as it is here. Mr. Jones also showed us a fac-simile of tho Gold States niedaillo which the McCormiclc " Machine of Steel" won at the groat universal exposition trials hold at Vienna last summer. The McCormick catalogue, which, by tho way, ho keopa for gratuitous distribution, is a work of art and will repay careful reading, while tho lithographic posters of tho historic battle of the Monitor 'and Mammae is the finest thing wo have ever seen published. When wo take into consideration the fact that tho McCormick company sold 105,468 machines in 1890, the popularity of their harvesters and mowers and the capacity of their mammoth works affords an interesting subject for content plation. __ _ Nollco of Dissolution.
