An ax-supervisor of our village was called upon some time ago by a younj man, who desired him to take charge of a funeral a few miles in the country.

We have been having a great variety of weather of late; and also weddings in variety, embracing the old and the young; and two a week right along since the advent of the new year. Thla certainly ia a grand triumphal entry of thla new leap year. May It bring happiness, peace and prosperity to all. ' On Thursday, Jan. 6th, at the residence of Mr. George Digby, the bride's lather, occurred the marriage of Mr. William Barbour to Mlsa May Digby. Also Thursday, Jan. 6th, at the residence of Mr. Isaac Austin, the bride's father, Mr. Warner Hurlbert,, of Dakota Ter., waa married to Mlsa Bell Austin. At Morrison, III, Monday, Jan. Oth, Mr. Thomaa Roe, a prominent citizen af our town, was married to a lady from Southern Illinois, whose name the writer did dot learn. At the residence of Mr, A. J. Philleo, the father of the bride, on Wednesday, Jan. 11th, were married Mr. Puul Robinson, of Morrison, 111., to Mlsa Jennie Philleo. The concert given on the evening of Jan. 2nd by the Congregational choir, led by A. 8. Morrla, chorister, bad some very excellent pieces of mualc, which were'admirably rendered by the choir, and called out a large and appreciative audience. The proceeds were given to a fund to purchase a new organ tor the church. The entertainment and Japanese Ealr, held in aid of a fund to establish a reading room, in this village, by the young people; was not aa well attended aa tbe merits of the affair would seem to demand. The object certainly was a very worthy one; and the enterprise of our young people in the attempt to •tart a reading room, should ha?* been batter appreciated by our citizens. Tho&e who attended the supper and fair on Tuesday eve, and the entertainment on Wednesday night were pleased and highly entertained. Let every one assist, and a reading room will be established which will be acred- • it to our village, and a great benefit to to onr people. Revival meetings are being- held at M.

MM! $t.OG per batik Hit Strt«kl« JkM«t*% CAPT. SMALLMAN. Monday night, after the conclnslon of tho annual Press club entertainment, there was a reception In honor of tho principal attraction of the rooms of the club. Straying Into the Bracking room to barn a clgnr, I was introduced to a gentleman engaged In extracting smoke from a Havana, or alleged Havana, roll of tobacco. "Let me make you acquainted with Capt. Smallman." "Glad to sec you, 8lr. Of Cnlcsgof" "No, I am. now living in Grand Haven." The captain Is a man of about 60, of medium height, compact figure, Indicating ft fine connection of Btrength and activity. His eyeu *r». » blue gray, his face calm, pleasant and' Intelligent, his hair brown, with, a- small. Island oi white being thrown up by time on the crown. There waa nothing at all striking In the appearance of the captain. I supposed that ho was the commander in chief, of a schooner on tho lake, and that he occupied himself In the commonplace and useful occupation of transporting Iron ore, shingles, lumber and other articles from point to point on the lakes. Anxious to mnkamVBelf agreea'ble for a moment, I ventured some comment .on the business of nailing the lakes, and naturally adverted to the late tremendous storms which had swept the Inland seas, and which carried death and destruction In their progress. Endeavoring to Ingratiate myself with the man with the nautical prefix to his name, I spoke of my experience on the ocean; how I had crossed the briny Atlantic a half dozeu times, and considered myself a tar seasoned to a perfect- finish. Aud then, to compliment the valor and endurance of the navigators of the lakes, I added that stormy, bottomless, cruel and unsympathetic as IB tee ocean, I would rather risk a voyage to Liverpool than one from Chicago to Mackinaw. "You meet tremendous storms on the lakes, do you not?" "*>t ^ Oh, yes, sometimes!" "Aud find it very dangaroua come »e»- jqns of thexyearl" "Yea." "And were you evpr shipwrecked?", "Well, no, not exactly. I have seen a good many, though, at one place or another." The rather Indifferent expression which habitually prevailed ou the face of the captain^ changed slowly Into ojie glowing with something like excitement. I saw that a memory waa stirring hla tout, and Inquired: "Is there any of your experiences of an unusual character. "Yes," he answered slowly, as If dreaming. "What was Itf" "I'll tell you one Incident," he said, with a serious air. Ther« were two or three listeners besides myself. \Vp were all standing up, as If the coming recitul were not of sufficient itnpqr fiance or length to warrant the occupationtft seats. "During the .civil war," commence^ the captain, "I,was In the Federal navy In the fleet engaged In blockading the Atlantic cpost. I then performed a service which at. the time seemed to me to be of Importance. The war ended arid the event was gradually almost forgotten. "Not, long ago I began to think the matter over, and concluded that I would call tha attention of the government to It. I wrote, a letter to Secretary Whitney, In •which I recited In detail all the facts in the occurrence. The letter was soon answered; by the. secretary by one in. which, he admitted the truth of all my- statements, including one to the effect that my assertion coincided with the accounts on file in die record of. tho operations of the navy department. "He' stated In Ills letter that a medal had been ordered, and which would bo presented to mo as n recognition of my services." "Well, captain, what was 'the event; what did you do to earn the medal and the commendation of the secretary of the navy?"< "AllTlght, I'll give you the fact*." • The captain then proceeded- fo a modest way to relate the Incident. . . * ' * * . « * * During that period of the civil war when the efforts ot the blockade runners ware- most fijequenl and energetic, Capt Smallman was acting as master of a Federal vessel, i Many were the adventures do- velope4 during this period of service,- amongftvhtch frightful storms, the chasing ot blockade runners and the carrying of Information from point to 'point were amongithe most conspicuous. Onrlpg the summer months of 1804 the oantaln, found himself In front ot the Wilmington coast and engaged In the labor of watching for smugglers. One day there came up a sudden aud tremendous storm accompanied by a wind that blew shore. It axtended through the night, and lasted all the next day an(l night wlthont ( the smallest Intermission In its fury. • The third day of the storm, Just after daylight; a lookout from .tha deck of tha Federal boat saw through the crests of the. tempestuous, waves what-seemed a signal,,or an Indication of human existence. 'Closer observation confirmed the fact that somebody in the distance was showing what looked like a seaman's Jacket.- By tbe aid of the glass it was Boon djscovcred that a vessel had broken tip on ,a reef to which a,number, of men were seen to be clinging. The situation was a terrible one to both the peqple on the wreck and tho Federal vessel.. There was imminent danger threat4nlng any attempt ot the latter to approach the former, as It was liable to •hare the name tato. Safety, demands^ that tbje vessel should keep on lt»coar») humanity, that, some effort should be mod's to rescue the wretches wbg wwp*. imp?l»f ned ou the reef. Xaere wag, <U»cnM}iou pro and con, until at length it was determined to remain in the vicinity with tlje hope that opportunity might be affordt^l to reach the wreck. It cfuld be oetu that tha men ou tha brctea vcw«l were In a desperate condition. They could be observed through th* r&tg o^ the &U>rax clinging to portion* of the ve^»*l which jret remained above th« water, ,«uui witrs evidently la*hwl hi tbelr nuttoui poektoo*. At thort lutorvui* Us* inraahjug wave* would mtawrg* «ua bo?-/ ti>»ta Jta its speed to a point where Itrould ju=t retain ptecrairo RO as to hold hotr on to tho pnlo. It. wn» ft torrlfrlns, a 'clnnporous position. The htign wavps, with Irresistible enerpry, tossed it ns If It were a cork; the waters poured over Its decks, their crests overtopping the smokestacks, and menaced the bop.t and its contents with Instant destruction. The conviction of the crew of tho Federal vessel was that the unfortunates on the wreck wore doomed, and that any attempt nt their rescue would certainly result In the loss of additional life. Not so with dipt. Smallman. He appreciated all the dangers of an effort at rescue, and yet felfc it to be his duty to Incur the risks. He was younR, vigorous and sympathetic, and he determined at all hazards to make an effort to reuch the wreck. He called for volunteers. There was a long delay, and then two of the crow stepped forward. With these he resolved to try and board the stranded vessel. With Infinite difficulty a boat was launched In. the howling waves,, and with Incredible effort the gallant three succeeded In entering It, and were Instantly capsized and the boat was turned bottom side up. Impossible aa It may seem another boat was launched, and the three men were picked up. Again they essayed to go out to the wreck, and thla this time succeeded In almost reaching it, when they were agalu turned over. The CAptftlu climbed ou the upturned bottom, another man clung to the boat, and the third man, a powerful swimmer, made his way to the wreck, hauling a line, which was attached to^he ship. This was made taut on a portion of the wreck, and by Its aid the other two men were able to be drawn out ot the water. Despite the uproar of the storm, the rescuing party was forced by the horror of the condition of the shipwrecked to notice the details of the situation. Fifteen men were In sight, lashed to various portions of the wreck, and all apparently In a dying conditioa With vast difficulty they were taken to tho gunboat along the extended line, all but ouo of them reaching tho ship In safety. One man died on the way from exhaustion. The wreck proved to be the Federal gunboat Lavender. Some of the crew had been swept off before tho arrival ot Capt. Smallman, and tho remaining fifteen would have lasted but a few hours longer without assistance. They had been exposed to the fury of the waves for fifty- six hours, and were on the verge of exhaustion from hunger, thirst and the blows of the waves. Their limbs, about which the ropes had passed In the lashings, were In a horrible condition, the flesh in many cases having swelled and puffed out till the ropes were out of sight. Tho survivors reported that the day bo- fore a Federal gunboat hod passed within sight of them, had witnessed their signals, and hod passed on without offering them any aid. "Did, you ever learn what gunboat it was that passed by like the Levlte 'on the other side?' " "No, it was never known except to the men ou the vessel who thus played the coirard, and abandoned the wretched crew to death." "Have yon ever had any communication from the men whom yoa rescuedf" "I have never heard a word from any of them, I regard this as the more curious from tho fact that several of the rescued men were officers of the wrecked vessel. In fact, I should not have ever heard from tha occurrence again hod I not, as I told you, written to the secretary of the navy." Such was the narration, In substance, of the quiet, modest captain In the smoking room of the Press club. No one from his appearance would have suspected him of being the hero of one of the most gallant feats of the war.—"Pollute" In Chicago Times.

"What strikes me most forcibly in what I have seen of you Americans," said Mr. John Mantell of London, who Is visiting friends on the south side, "Is your gullibility. I think you impose on each other and let other people Impose on yon more than they do In any other country on the face of the globe. Why, lu the few days I have been here I have seen a dozen impositions which, I understand, have long been practiced on yon people, and you take no sort of notice of them. For Instance, I wanted a pair of shoes, and saw Just such a pair as I wanted in a State street window. They were marked $0 in big block figures on a white card. That seemed to be a very reasonable price, and as the card said they were the 'best make In the land,' or something of that sort, I went in with the intention of buying them. " '1 want a pair of shoes like that one In the window,' I said. "The clerk went straight aud got A pair that looked a good deal like the sample. I found a pair that fitted me and handed him a $5 note. " 'Those are $8? sold he. " 'But they are placarded $5 in the window,' I soldi " 'Oh, this Is not the some shoe. It Is made In the same style, but it is much bet- termade and finer all round.' " 'But I want that $5 shoe,' I told him. "After he haddouea good deal of looking around lie come back and said they hadn't one that would fit me In the shop. Then he tried to flatter by telling me that he naturally supposed I wanted the best, and all that. Now, I understand you Americans let your shop keepers impose on you in this manner year after year, and get rich at it, Why, at home if a shop keeper should attempt such a trick it would ruin his business In a twelvemonth.
