An ordinance in relation to sidewalks on Diagonal street. Section 1. Be it ordained by the city council of th«» pity of AJgona, Iowa, that a two {nob plank walk flve feet and four inches in width, laid on not leas than four Sx4 stringers, be laid OB the east side of Diagonal street from Lucas to Commercial street, and that toe abutting property ordered and directed to lay the Got In on the Ground Floor. This applies to two classes of people. Those who are interested for the purpose of investment or speculation, and those who for any reason desire to change their buwinesa locutions. To any person in either class the new towns located and owned by the Chicago & Northwestern Railway company along its new linos of railroad now being constructed, offer the most tempting inducements. Prices of lots in these towns are still' absolutely on the ground floor, and are sure winners either for investors or locators. The Northwestern also owns nearly one- half million acres of splended timberland, adapted to general farming, which is for sale at very low prices. Write for information to J. P. Cleveland, Lund Commissioner, Chicago & Northwestern Railway Co., Chicago. A Growing State —"yew Towns In Iowa.

They were talking of dueling at the Weinmcister, when a gentleman who lived in California in the GO'S said: "In 1852 there were no less than it duels fought in California, and seven of them were fatal. "I remember distinctly the first duel I *Ver saw. It was fought by General James Denver, then of San Francisco* and a Yankee named Gilbert, the editor of the Alta California. "It was this way: The state of California hnd appropriated $50,000 to be used for the benefit of needy emigrants who had lost their stock and means in coming the overland route to California, and Gen. Denver was appointed to take charge of the expenditure of the fund. "Gilbert, like a good many other Yankees, had a way of sticking his nose iuto other people's business. He came out in a letter criticising the appropriation and reflecting on Gen. Denver. Denver replied, nailing Gilbert to the.cross. Gilbert challenged him. They used muzzle-loading rifles, the dueling weapons of those days, at 30 yards. "On the field near San Francisco Denver acted most gentlemanly. At the first round he fired straight up In the air. He wns a dead shot and didn't want to kill the Yankee. Gilbert fired at Denver, but his bullet went wide of the mark. "Gilbert's foolish friends Insisted upon a second round. I said to Denver: " 'You must plug him this time. He wants your life. Plug him.' " 'You're right,' said Denver. 'I gave him his life, but he didn't appreciate the gift. I will now kill him.' "The men took their places. Gilbert was somewhat shaky, Denver cool as a marble statue. "Denver shot him through the heart killing him so instantly that he didn't even wriggle. "Gen. Denver was one of the grandest characters I ever knew. He was generosity itself. Denver, Col., was named for him.—Atlanta Journal. Goat Is Fond of Ink. A valued appurtenance of a Twenty- second street lumber yard Is an elderly goat whose gastronomic propensities rival the reputed accomplishments of his comic-paper prototype. Ink is the appetizing delicacy which appeals to the epicurean taste of this goat, and he will not only eat newspapers and blotters, but considers rubber pads used for letter-press purposes toothsome morsels, provided they have been long enough in use to have become covered with the ink soaked from copied letters. Every written thing has to be handled with care outside the lumber offlce, else It will go to swell the quantity of literature which has been devoured by this caprine gourmand. One day Inst week a small boy employed by a stationery firm entered the lumberyard to deliver a bottle of ink. The youth was not aware of the peculiar characteristics of the goat and -suspected naming when the animal sniffed and approached. Just before he reached the office the boy felt himself performing sundry aerial convolutions and when he sat up he saw the goal placidly licking the ink from the plank pavement near the brick wall of the office against which the quart bottle had burst. The goat greedily chewed the sawdust and shavings which had become saturated with the black fluid, and smacked his lips between bites.— Chicago News. Traits of the lynx. Although undoubtedly "cats," in the wider sense of the term, lynxes are so totally different from the familiar "tabby" and its larger, long-tailed kindred that no one can fall to recognize them as forming a perfectly distinct group. Having the ordinary catlike cast of countenance, the true lynxes possess a characteristic tuft of long hair on the tip of each ear, and also a ruff around the throat; while the shortness of the tail forms a still more peculiar feature. The Canadian lynx may be regarded as one of the nioet typical members of the group, be_ ing represented by another closely allied species or variety in northern Europe and a third in Tibet. To most people lynxes are probably best known by their fur, which Is always highly esteemed for trimmings, on account of Its softness and warmth; those skins in which the spots are most conspicuous being the favorites. If, however, captured at a sufficient early age these animals may be trained to form perfectly tame pets, although their play is apt to be somewhat rough. In captivity they are specially fond of catch- Ing pigeons, when the opportunity occurs, and the agility with which they will spring into a flock and seize two or three of its members as they rise from the ground must be seen to be fully realized. ten Thousand Feet the Limit of Depth, Mining engineers agree that the limit to which shafts may be sunk into the earth with the present machinery ana equipments Is 10,000 feet. The deepest shaft ever dug is the one uow in existence in one of the copper mines oil Lake Superior. It has a sheer depth of 5,000 feet. Pr. A. C. Lane, the assistant geolpgist for Mich-, igan, in an article in Mineral Industry on "How Deep Can We Mine?" places the probable limit at 10,000 feet. He says, however, that eaor- mowsly rich deposits might lead man to dig to lfi.000 feet with profit The els- meat of danger is not considered ID these calculations.
