THE REPUBLICAN !
We take pleasure In announcing that we
have made arrangements with the publish
er of the Chicago Wk EKLT News which
enables us to oiler 'hat aper to our sub
scribers as a premium, at no additional
cost ovor the regular subscription price ot
For ono niWscription price we thus fur
nish our subscrilters with two papers a
metropolitan and a home weekly. By
this arrangement our subscribers are pla
ced in command ot the whole situation.
All eveuU of interest, local, national and
( reign will be presented, completely and
promptly, by the one or the other ot these
two publications. The single feature of
lull and trustworthy Chicago market quo
tations will be worth, to many of our
readers, the entire subscription price.
To those who are not fitmiliar with the
CniCAGo News, we would say it is the
best representative of independent Jour
nalism iu the west. The Weekly ews
is a large eight column folio, "cram lull"
if telegraph and general new, short and
pithy editorials ou the topics of the lUy,
writteu in a very familiar, incisive style,
and in all its departments evidently aims
to give facts in few words, without the
verbiage and tine wrilting which render
so many of the large metropolitan jour
nal "a weariness to the fVsh." Fart,
not words appear to be its matto.
All new subscriiiers to the Republican
and all old kubcribcrs who renew before
the first of January, will receive the

"Yes, Tabby is ratber pretty."
"She don't seem to care much for
the admiration of gentlemen," said
vivacious girl, who was, evidently,
only too willing to accept all the
homage she could get.
"Still waters run deep," was the re
eponse of another.

at the house of a friend, where, by
chance, several of the students and
one or two young ladies huppened to

in time to encountsr the girl of whom
he had spoken, a modest, somewhat
uncultivated, but very lovable girl
and the niece of a professor who was
fitting Drake au j a dozen other
young gentlemen for college.
"Will you allow mo to walk home
with you?" he asked, politely lifting
Certainly, if you are going my
way," said Tabby. "You know the
street doesn't belong to me."
"Oh, certainly; and and won't you
take my arm?"
"No, indeed," said Tabby, shortly.
"JPray, why not?"
"Because I don't need It," laughed
Tabby; "I've two of my own."
"Why, Tabby, I didn't know you
"Of course not; that is, I haven't
had the chance, jou know. You
don't seem to like me as well as you
do the other fellows."
"I don't like fellows, any way," said
"You must make an exception in
my case," said tbe boy.
"You're as bad as the rest. They
all make lun of everybody, but es
pecially of girls."
"Oh, no. I never do I Do you know
the reason? It's because I like you

"Ohl well because I do, and be

"Why, are you rich?" asked Tabby,
"No, but my father is. He will let
me get you horses, and carriages, an.1
"And jewels?" asked Tabby.
"Oh, a peek of ear-riogs, and
finger-lings, and bracelets, and
chains! In fact, anything you wish
"Thank you," said Tabby. "How
delightful; I never had a ring in my
ife. How nice a real gold ring
"Wouldn't It?" And then he extor-
ed a promise from her that she
would not speak to any of the other
students about his proposal, at least
or a day, while she on her part told
him that she would give him her an

And much good may it do youl"
she laughed to herself, as she ran up
the steps of her uncle's house. "I
wonder if he thinks I can't see that
he is making fun of me. He doea it

Iler cheek was flushed now, and
her eyes sparkling, for though slow of
speech she was quick of wit, and
could read character pretty correctly.
In something less than an hour
Drake had met his friends, who
crowded around him with questions.
"What did she say?"
"Splendid 1 splendid I" ejaculated
the young man, .rubbing hi hands
vivaciously; and he repeated the con
versation with many embellUhments,
saying that she had asked him if he
would give her a peck of jewels and
a white horse with a red velvet sad
dle, provided she. was willing to mar
This proof of the girl's silliness
brought forth peals of laughter from
the boys and girls, by whom he was

was agreed that they should all cull

We are having occasion to look
over an epoch of old Chaldean and
Assyrian history at an age when the
arts, sciences and literature were at
their highest, and when skillful me
chanic arts supplied luxuries of all
kinds. Assyria was at that time, in
these particulars, fully abreast with
any natiou of Europe of two centu
ries ago, and yet the earth was as
nearly a hell as one can imagine
without a storm of fire and brimstone.
Asshur-izlr-pal spent thirty years in
burning, butchering, crucifying, cut
ting off the noses ears and otherwise
maiming the people of the nalious
from the east side of the Valley of the
Tigris to the Mediterranean, and
from Luke V.in to the Persian Gulf.
Three limes did he assault the com
bined forces of Phceuicia, Israel, Syr
ia, Moab, aud i'hitisiia, who united
for tbe common dtfeuse. Twice they
repulsed hiui in successive cam
paigns. The third attack he made
with the .whole force of his empire,
aud overwhelmed them In the .valley
of the Jordan. And then the Assyrian
devil, aud his myriads, made them
telyes drunk with innocent blood.
His twenty-seven campaigns were
with no other object In view than to
Indulge his thirst for blood aud Lis
love for destruction. He records his
work in a stilted style of self-con-
gratulatlon and glorification. He
tells how he crucified and maimed
tne people, burnt the cities, cut down
all the trees, and drove off all the
cattle; and how he then made thank
offerings to his gods for his sucoess.
Now mark the fact that Assyria was
at that time the. most enlightened
nation on the globe a nation of as-
tronomers. poets artists, architects,
armorers a nation which believed in
the immortality or the soul, and ia a

A. Trick that Cured a Desire fur Death.
A young man, suffering from the
reaction incidental to a spree, entered
a grocery at the north end recently
aud unceremoniously knelt before the
proprietor, asking his forgiveness for
being in such a condition. . The gea-
tleman thus addressed tried to pacify
him, but could not, and finally re-
ferred him to the clerks. The young
persistent then turned to the senior
clerk, and on his knees pleaded to be
shot, offering to eign his own death
warrant, - Finding him persistent, tbe
cleik decided to try and dispel his
morbid desire for death by "means of
a practical joke. iSo a death warrant, half of the brain took the lead. Left

fire cracker was meanwhile slyly ig-
nited, and placed upon the floor at
the back of the fellow, who with pale
face and anxious expression awaited
the fatal shot. Suddenly the cracker
exploded, and at tbe same instant the
young man overcame all desire to

We suppose that many people think

one thousand bushels of wheat, and
his neighbor should come and buy-
bushel, and the price was a small
matter of only two dollars or less.
and the neighbor says, ! will hand
you the araonnt In a few days." As
the farmer does not want to be small
about the matter, he says all right,
the man leaves with the wheat, ' An
other comes in tbe same way, until'
the whole of the thousand bushels of
wheat are trusted out to one thous
and different persons,, and not one of"
tbe purchasers concerns himself'
about it, for it is a small amount that
he owes the farmer, and of course
that would not help him any. He

wheat, and that Its value is due him
to a thousand little driblets,, and that
