D. says: Wnlluco & Co.'s circus gave an exhibition here Thursday afternoon and evening. A number of attractions not advertised wero permitted to run in the side show attached to the circus in the shape of fake gambling schemes such as three card monte, the " shell gnmo" and others of a like order. While endeavoring to pursundo a friend who was losing money on the shell game to withdraw from the side show John Anderson, a stock buyer of this place, was sot upon by a, dozen or more of the gamblers and given a severe beating. The citizens are indignant over the failure of the acting mayor and the city marshal to have arrests made for the gambling olTenses and for the unprovoked assault on Anderson. C. W.

This woman has appeared before all members of royalty in Europe, and has" attracted more attention among the intelligent class of people than any other woman ever born to live. She has two heads,, four hands and arms, and four lower limbs,. but one body, speaks four languages—two at the same time—sings alto and soprano at the same time. Apploton's encyclopedia, vqluino 11, 'under letter M, gives the following medical description of her: More curious than the Siamese Twins, as they wero two individuals; Millie Christine is but one physically and sexually, two mentally. She is a dual wonder and the only one on earth, and is well known to science throughout the civilized world. Lieut.-Gov.

Miss Kvn Whitney Describes Her Trip to tho Knst, nncl Notes the 1'lcnsurps Afforded—A Spicy better. MALONE, N. Y., Aug. IS.—To tho Editor: Here we are, my friend, Mis» Warner, and I at Malono, tho county seat of Franklin my native county. Wo have so thoroughly enjoyed our eastern trip and vacation, I will give your readers tho benefit of It, if benefit it is. .Wo left Algona Juno 17, on tho 0:30 train, reaching Milwaukee at 1:30, the 18th, took the boat at 8:30, went to our state room and had a good night's rest. Wo awoko tho next morning to a view of tho groat sand hills of Grand Haven. Nearly nil tho white brick used in, tho United States arc made from tho sand of these hills. Without delay wo prooeodrd on the Michigan Central by way of Detroit to Hamilton, at tho head of Ontario, where wo took tho Grand Trunk for Prosoolt. Hero was an aggravating dulny of two hours. Standing on the shore of tho great St. Lawrence wo saw tho train moving out from the other side for homo, and wo woro loft behind. There seems to be no ar- rangmont for connection between Canada and tho states; however, wo caught a ferry nt lust, and crossing to Ogdons- burgbroakflisted at a good American house, and at I) o'clock started for homo, 00 miles distant. Just hero I wish I had power to describe to you tho grand old St. Lawrence, HO famed in history, and whoso clear waters hold tho beautiful Thousand Islands, one of tho most noted pleasure resorts of tho world. Juno 21) we took a trip to Burlington, Vt. Only think, Mr, Editor, a trip of 100 miles and return for $1 4 That Is the way they do thlngs'in New • York. Tho trip wim made to Rouse's point, sixty miles, by rail, and tho remainder by steamer Reindeer on Lake Champlatn. Tho day was lino and the sail delightful. To the right Plattsburg, backed by tho Adlrondacks, extended tun miles dowti tho lake. At the left wo saw the Groon mountains, while nearer wo passed North Island, Isle La Mott, and South Island, three large towns, besides several picturesque little towns Providence Island, a pleasant resort, being one. Isle La Mott has a lino granite quarry and a dock with considerable shipping. Burlington has tliroo colleges, a state insane asylum, Kthon Allen's monument, numorous parks, drives, etc. College Hill Is truly a delightful place. Wo woro a wook ahead of the president, as wo thought, but his visit was deferred until August 29. There was but one drawback to the pleasures and that was tho evidence of " lire water" on tho evening train. I would that my nutlvo state wns us nearly redeemed from this. curse as in tho state of my adoption, grand, noble lowii. Our next trip wns inndu to Tuppor Lake, forty miles into tho heart of tho AdlrondackH. It was a now road, and platform curs wore arranged with seats, and embowered with small trues of tho native cedar. The scenery was grand, sometimes awful, especially the cinders from tho big mogul. We woro in company with a lady who had traveled in Europe, and Hhosaid: " Tills Is beyond anything that I have over wltnesed in travel," This Northern Adirondack road is tho one ex-Presldoiil Cleveland paused over in going to Ills summer resort in tho mountains. On tho route w'o passed a lonely little station, and on inquiry learned that It Is the Vanderbilt station, from which they proceed by carriage to \Vaubeok Lodge, a distance of six miles, Tuppor Lake is a summer resort situated on the lake of that name, a pretty little sheet of water. Tho town Is but a year old and has 700 inhabitants. There are throe lino hotels and a largo number of boarding houses, for the accoraodation of tourists. Our next was a fishing trip on the east branch of tho St. Regis river, with my brother for escort and guide. We' put up at the McNeil hotel at the foot of one of tho Adirondack peaks, feasted for three days on mountain latnb and trout, and came home well bron/.ed and in good condition. Our final trip in tho foot hills was made by Invitation of, and in company with, H, P. Lindsay. This was a carriage drive to the summer lodgo of tho Russols from Now York City. It is a delightful summer house of Swiss style a short distance from Dickinson Center. The situation is on a little iom of a lake which is tho outlet of Trout Brook. Tho proprietor kindly gave us tho use of a boat and a written permit to " Miss Warner" (who had never seen a trout) and party to fish. She keeps this as a souvenir.

She succeed ed in righting it before it had dipped much water, but succeeded in giving the party a good wetting, while she escaped dry-shod. She was very mag-* nunimouH in hor efforts to hind while Mr. Lindsay sat helplessly in the stern. We were soon all safe on terra firma, dried our boat and then proceeded with? out further accident.
