It is not too early to begin putting:
the city's streets hi shape for the big
Carnival and Street Fair. Akron
should be arrayed in hor most at
tractive dress when the thousands of
visitors come to town.
Chairman P. E. Werner informs
the Democrat that between 40,000
and 50,000 out-of-town people are
expected to attend the Akron Free
Carnival and Street Fair each of its
four days. Det the visitors come.
Akron knows how to entertain them.
A very low fare will be offered
from Akron to Zauesville on account
of the Democratic convention, and a
large delegation will be on hand
from Summit county to urge the
nomination of Judge C. R. Grant for
The Iowa Republican convention
dispenses with the usual humbug of
ti declaration favoring an interna
tional agreement, and declares that
"the permanency of the Gold Stand
ard must be secured by Congres
sional legislation giving to it the
validity and stability of public law."
There should be no limit to the
liberality of the city's officials in
ffrWKn f sTo it olco U N Cl m
dealing with the Free Carnival and
Street Fair management. This is
going to be Akron's Fair, managed
by Akron men, for Akron's benefit,
nnd all of the people will share in
the advantages. Anything the
officials can do in the way of appro
priations or grants of privileges will
help the city.
Summit county will go to the
Z&nesville convention and ask the
Democracy of the great state of Ohio
to place upon the ticket one of bum
mit's honored sons. In other words
Judge C. R. Graut of Akron, is a
candidate for Justice of the Supreme
Court, a position which he is
eminently fitted to fill. The West
ern Reserve votes will be solidly for
him. Cuyahoga Falls Sentinel.

Temper Went a Fast Mile at
Nebraska Indians Will Play Here
"Andy" Welsh, the well known
book maker, who was doing business
in this city at the last race meeting
is having trouble at Columbus.
A special from that place says :
Warren W. Stoner backed the
trotters at the Driving park and now
he seeks to recover $3,625 claimed to
have been lost on the 2:14 race the
other day when Surpol was with
drawn on account of a bad foot.
Stoner is a Kentuckian and is one of
the best known of turfmen. He
claims that he bought pools on Sur
pol in the 2:14 trot to the amount of
$3,625 and was "jobbed out" of his
money hands down.
Stoner claims that the horse was
"doctored" so that he could hardly
stand and was unable to trot out the
last heats of the race, having won
one heat, and the two going to an
other horse. This afternoon the
rain having prevented further rac
ing, this event being unfinished, was
awarded to the horse having won the
most heats. Accordingly Stoner's
tickets were hardly worth tearing
up. An attachment was gotten out
thiVaf ternoon by Mr. Stoner against
Ira E. Bride, William Fitch and An
drew Welsh, the "Bookies," and the
Driving association which is sup
posed to have funds belonging to the
defendants. Service was secured by
the sheriff at the Neil house.
The game between the Akrons
and North Ends for the champion
ship of the City, which was sched
uled for Saturday, was postponed be
cause of rain.
Two great games will be played in
this city Friday and Saturday, when
the Nebraska Indians will line up
against the Akrons. The Red men
have been defeating every club that
they have met. The game will be
played on the Buchtel college
Ruhlin and Jefford.

Poor old Peter Jackson, who used
to be the idol of San Francis-
coans, can't find any club on the
coast to hang up a purse for a go be

would like to get one from one of our
clubs. There is still draught, 1

"Stonewall died," ran one of the
most popular fables, "and two angels
came down from heaven to take him
back with tliern. Tliey went to his
tent He was not there. They went
to the hospital. He was not there.
They went to the outposts, lie was
not there. They went to the prayer
meeting. He was not there. So- they
had to return without him, but when
they reported that he had disappeared
they found that he had made a flank
march and reached heaven before
them." "Stonewall Jackson," by Lieu
tenant Colonel G. P. U. Henderson.
No Reflection Intended.
This was overheard on a cable car
the other morning. An overslender
woman climbed in. and took a place on
an otherwise vacant seat. The still
slumbrous conductor took the quarter
that she handed him, and before he
rang up the fare, "One?" he asked ab
sentmindedly. "Yes, and don't try to be funny," she
snapped. New York Sun.
"There's the smartest little woman
that ever took hold of this servant girl

pointing with pride to his only daugh

The Princess Bismarck changed the
political history of France unwittingly,

Bismarck was unfriendly to France,
but the Empress Eugenie hoped with
her beauty to Influence him so that the
little trouble with France and Ger

therefore invited the German prince
and his wife, to visit the court of
France, and the Prince and Princess

guests in a gown which made her so
ravishingly lovely that even Prince
Bismarck, German, stolid and in love
with his wife, stood and gazed upon
her with admiration. Aud Eugenie
was not slow to observe the effect of
her beauty upon him. She called him
to her side, and Bismarck came with
his wife upou his arm.
Now, the Princess Bismarck was tall
and gaunt and ugly, and her feet were
generous. As she walked she showed
a great deal of sole.
While Bismarck stood talking with
Eugenie an audible titter was heard
along the line of ladles. Bismarck,
who was quick as a flash, followed the
glance of their eyes aud saw them rest
upon the feet of his wife.
That settled the matter. The politi
cal history of France was altered from

THE MYSTERY OF DREAMS.
A Cane In Which the Coincidences
On an occasion during the civil war
I dreamed that I was standing beside
a road when there came marching
along it a strong column of prisoners,
with guards at intervals on the
flanks. I asked one of these guards
who the prisoners were and where
thej had been captured. He informed
me that they had been taken in an en
gagement with the enemy on the
day before and that there were 1,900 of
them. I then asked some bystander
what day of the month it was and was
told that it was such a daj of a certain
month, some six weeks later than the
date of the dream. The whole dream
was extremely distinct, and it made a
strong impression on me. I related it
to a number of my comrades within
the next few days aud then thought of
it no more.
Six weeks later, on the morning of
the very day that had been mentioned
in the dream as the date when the
column of prisoners had passed before
me, I was on picket two miles distant
from the point where I had seemed to
be when I saw them. It was soon aft
er breakfast, and I was standing by
the side of the road at the fire talking
to the officer of the picket when an
aid to the commanding general came
riding down the road. He had been a
schoolfellow of our oliicer's at West
Point, and reined up when he recog
nized his friend. He told us that he
had good news, that there had been a
sharp engagement with the enemy the
day before aud that our people had
captured 1,900 prisoners, who had
just passed the headquarters that

Slow railroad trains are probably not
peculiar to any locality. The story of
the conductor who waited for the hen

road and also, It may bo remarked,
over a AVisconsin rond what was
known as the "huckleberry train," the
Jest being that it was so slow that
passengers could jump off at the front
end of the train and pick huckleberries
for awhile and then get on at the rear
end as it.came up.
