Tbe name of the play will Indicate the nature of the performance. Mr, Wolford, "party by the name of Johnson," sustained his part creditably; as did also Jellick, a nervous old beau. The support generally was fairly good. The company tonight gives a High Old Time, which ought to be full of rollicking humor. —Constable W.H. Howard received a telegram this morning from Baldwinsville, New York announcing the death of hia father,,.James Howard, which sad event occured last night. Mr. Howard not having been home for upwards of twenty years would like to go now in order to pay the last sad tribute pf respect to the memory of his father and at tbe. same .time see his brothers and sisters, but Is unable to leave bis business. —We see by the -programme- sent in to us that some very good practical speeches are promised from practical farmers at the Farmers' Congress to be helij at Dlxon, beginning \ February 9th, next; at the same time we observe what we were pretty [certain we should find that politicians are down also, for speeches. Of course their subjects are plausible enough, and seemingly appropriate, but they are not farmers, and would not be around, if it were not an election year. —The committee have arranged to buy the overflow lands and now It is needful to raise the rest of the money. Let the citizens respond promptly. Thsre must be liberal and generous subscriptions. Inhere can be no receding; we've gone too far for that The winter Is fast wearing away and a whole year can be saved by getting a big force of men on the Island and cut down and get off tbe timber while the tee will permit. This week should complete the work of raising the amount necessary, complete the organization and start the work. Let there be ft whoppiug big rally when the Ana) •tMtinff Is *all«d. —Our littlfl mouse has disappeared,— have'nt seen it for a month or more. Whether the cold weather has been too tr.ucb for it, or whether it has starved upon the Ink, roller or type diet of the office, or whether some eatray cat has made a dinner off It, or whether the •'devil" has spirited it away to his own home to start a museum with it, we don't know. Our heart is sad, as. we reflect upon its withdrawal and we mourn its presumed death as being the loss of a friend that stood by us through weeks and weeks of physical suffering and that got as close to us as it possibly could,—its preferred place being the very seat of the pain, as though it had said, "I know Jdst what's the matter old fellow. Newspaper chaps have their fill of endurance of "downs" without the "ups" anyway; but added tu yours Is that plaguery foot that swells like the gout; but of course it isn't, because editors can't get the gout. It comes of good eating; editors don't get good eating." 1 ou have to be twitted with having it, though, without the consolation of knowing that that did it. I understand." And the little fellow would sit there, nestled down, ever down raising its little head upward and fixing its keen little eye upon us as much as to say; "You write now anything you please about •women. Yon see: They are afraid of, me. Just let one dare to come around to go for you about some article they don't like, and at single sight of me, they'll give an awful cry, draw their skirts close about them and flee to some neighboring chair or box, up which they'll mount.qulcker than you c!m say Jack Robinson." So it is in life; our friends are with us and are gone. mark that if he hadn't pot his pay for wrftlng for the fellow before hers was received, he wasn't likely to do BO. "Great Scott!" be ejaculated, as the perspiration rolled down his face, "if I haven't sent her Tohn's picture instead of my own." He has written fifteen or twenty explanatory letters since, but none of them suit him, and he is half wild to know how he shall make up matters with her. James M. Fitzgerald's Restaurant. Meals at all hours; oysters in every style. Prices very reasonable. Under Reefer's drug store, corner 3rd and Locust streets. tf You need not go one step farther than the Boston Store for "anything ia the world that is to be found In a dry goods store anywhere. Yon not only find a good assortment but you get goods at prices lower than the lowest anywhere else. 61 Any one who is affected with Tetter, Salt Rheum or any Itching or smarting skin disease should try Chamberlain's Eye and Skin Ointment.

Sold by Strlckler & Boorse. tf PEOPLE'S COLUMN, See Co. the tf new ad of N. Carpenter & —A man here at Sterling went home a few evenings ulnce mad with a neighbor. On his way, he reflected upon what the neighbor had said and he got still angrier. Reaching home, It suddenly occurred to him that hia wife wasn't the dutiful woman he thought she ought to be and he had heard that some women love you all the more if you whip them occasionally. So when he found that supper wasn't quite ready and that she had forgot to get the milk and bring In the coal and kindling for the morning and feed . the pig and sundry other things that many men think they ought to help their wives In do- Ing, he got -angrier still and re solved then and fliere to administer a schooling she'd not be likely to forget. Imbued of this.spirit of reform, be went outdoors and returned with a whip in his hand. Ills better half was just "rounding up" the placing of the food upon the table, and was not aware of his presence until she felt a great swipe of the whip aforementioned across her shoulders. W ith utterlyaston- ished look she turned about, and taking In the situ'ation,let fly a dish of potatoes at the husband's head. It sailed true to the mark and brought him to the floor. She than ran Into the corner and seized a broom standing there, and before he had recovered sufficiently to begin to arise, belabored him with It; until it broke, when she rushed to the stove, grabbed the poker and resumed the whacking. Nor did she desist until he had humbly and plteously begged her pardon, and Insisted that he had struck her. In spirit of loving good humor. "Humor of that kind don't go down my throat" said his spouse, pantlug a* she spoke from the exercise she had gone through, "yo.u may make me do all the housework and take In sewing and washing to support you in your laziness, don't -lay the weight of your hand on me, never. Next time you try it, I'll maul you to death." "No danger of my trying it again," muttered the husband as he washed the blood from his face. "Some fellers does it,— but I guess it's more in the kind of women they'se tied to. Wonder If she broke my bock," he said after a pause. He then me«kly asked fur some arnica, which she gave him. Because we think he got a pretty good punishment (no more than he deserved, however) we spare his mame. Would that the one or two women whose husbands beat them might turn the table upon their brutal partners as did this woman. —A young man of our- acquaintance a short time ago had his photograph taken for the especial purpose of giving one to the girl he likes best. He got a dozen and they were excellent counterfeits of him, too. He took them home and opening the parcel containing them threw them upon the table, where were several others; one of a girl he formerly admired aiyl one of a chum of his, a young fellow somewhat handsome, but not much for industry; in fact, he lives upon hia father and is notoriously lazy. Our young friend sat down to the table and wrote a very clever letter to the young lady to the effect that he had long admired and taken deep interest in her. He was firmly of the opinion that she ought to marry, and that he enclosed the picture of one who if she would consent would be to her a faithful and devoted husbaiid,—one who would love her, care for her, provide for her and live only, unto her until death them did part. Love was pure and marriage of heaven. He concluded with an ardent request that she answer at once, aa the original of the picture enclosed was awaiting his fate with impatience. Perhaps she might think the owner of the picture should press his suit in person; but he was a bashful youth and knew he never could muster courage before her sweet presence; yet he could assure her that he was none the less genuine In his affection. He mailed the letter and was driven half crazy two days later when he received a reply to the effect that she wanted no such baby-faced beau as that, who couldn't even do his own courting, and that if the had known when lie was coming to see her that he was courting her for another follow, she'd have got her big brother to help him out the ftko «lo*«d wife te* WMrtag The books of Mrs. 8.
