Tho place of all plates in town is W. J. Hanks', the jeweler, so we'll go there fust." En lering iho popular jewelry storo the old man gallantly acquitted himsotf of his promise, and then directed Kiln's attention to iho superior stock of silver- wars carried by the house. "Pick out your family clock whilo here," he added. Mr. Hanks carries a magnili- cont linp. "Don't forgot another fact," he continued, "if over you iintorliinnto- ly ueod optical goods, this is the placo lo come. Turning to Ella grandpa suggested that they visit Eaton's Bakery. Hero ihoy regaled themselves on ice cream AS delicious k« tho "apicuroan dream of the God's." Then sho made a few purchases of ohoieo confections and fruits, also some of his par exccllenoo ovan products, whioh, are baked daily. The broad was so lino that sho resolvsd never to bake as long as sho lived near Mr Eaton. "It does not foll'.tv." sniil grandpa, "that careful attontion to matlors of the table need only ho paid lo provisions; the meal question is equally essential. To locate the man who carries constantly choice meats, juicy steaks, game and fish in season, is quito an undertaking, but I heartily recommend J. B. Hart. Ho sells cheap, 1 always woll stocked, handles nothing but tho choicest of prime and well conditioned meats, and makes a strong point of combining quantity and quality for the money. 1 As you are going to farming." remarked Grandpa, "you'll need harness. The horse milliner in this section is Wm. Kluss. Ho employs only first-class workmeu and gives personal supervision to the minutest detail of luanufaiiture. Heavy and light, single and double, plain anil fancy, work and buggy harness, ho has them in stock. Ho carries saddles, whips, fly nets, dusters, lap robes, anything a farmer or gentleman horse owner can desire, and as to prices, well, ho can't be ondorsold. Ho also does carriage trimming neatly and promptly." "A protiy good start," said the old man, "ami now we'll go to Watery & Nicolay's hardware store." Here Ella's konsowifoly inslinots had full play in marvels of kiluhen apparatus. Every possible pieco of kitohen furniture, from a tin dipper to' a Clermont, cooking range. If Ella fails lo accomplish wonders iu the culinary art it will not bo for fault of superior cooking ulon- sils. Her purehas-os included a cook slovo and range, Quick -Meal, gasoline stove and n supply of Anti-Rust tinware. This firm has a tin shop up stairs whoro they employ only flrsl-oluss Workmen. "Now we'll pay n visit to the hair dresser," remarked grandpa, "for your hair is rathor long, Howard, and you must have somo tousorial work done. So we'll chop into J. T. Parker's parlor. This is the placo where you can gat a quick, neat, eujoyublo shavo, hair opt or shampoo." "Now," oried the old genlleman. "Now for a picture of the orowd in good old country fashion. Wo'll go to tho photograph gallery, and Postvillo has a lirst-class-one, that of my friend, F. N. Ueed/. His pictures are "out of sight" in lulolily and iiulsli. 1 want some full sized photos for my friends anil an enlarged crayon for myself, and if you over want anything iu nulla ink yen will find Mr. u«edy an artist In every particular.

The Col. is not soured becauso of his defeat two years ago, but is on deck to do what he can for the republican party, though ho has seemingly no desire for furthev official place. He says it is far nioro pleasant and profitable to attond lo his own pri- vato businoss.
