About 10 o'clock a. in. yesterday one of
the Illinois Central railroad company's en
gines, No. 112, which had just como in
from up t lie road, was accidentally run into
'.Le pit of the turn table, in front of the
round house, uear Eighteenth street, break
ii)!,' her up pretty badly, and also demolish
ing the turn 'table. The accident was the
more serious iu so far as it prevented the
engines in the round house from coining
out and taking out their respective trains.
Con-eiuently the several engines
that brought down trains hud to take their
places and run back without being allowed
the u-iiiul rest. Rut all the company's
available force from the several depots, the
trans-ft-r, the cur-hoist and round-house,
nuinberin' in all about seventy-five men,
was immediately put to work to raise the
engine and reptir the damages and by the
use of blocks, ropes, chains and hydraulic
pressure, the engine was agaiu placed upon
the track by evening and, since tho dam
ages she sustained are to great to be repair
el here. She will be taken to Dloomingtou
Temperance ball was well filled last
night by our society people who wenttheic
to eat a hearty supper and have an, even
ing's social pleasure and recreation. It
was the occasion of the supper and festival
given by the W. C. T. L, and to say that
it was an aiTair of unusual interest
to all who attended is no
exaggeration. The ladies, who were en
trusted with the management, understood
and performed their duties well, which
was evident to even a casual observer from
the greatness of the crowd;
me pleasant smiles mat were
visible on every contenance, tho
great quantity ot and excellent quality
ct the eetables aud numerous other
attractions that ;reeted the eye. Money
was freely and nobly spent by tho visitors
and the fair promises to be financially as
well as otherwise entirely satisfactory to the
club. The bazar for tho sale ot fancy arti
cles was in charge of Misses Mamie
Sproat, Fannie Rarclay, Musa
Green, Emma James aud Julia
Copehtnd. Table No. 1 was pre
sided over by Mrs. G. M. Alden and
Mrs. Capt. Miller, assisted by Misses
Mamie Parker and Viola Antrim. Table
No. 2 was presided over by Mrs. Henry
Elliott and Mrs. Easterday, assisted by
Misses Ella Kent and Katie Howard.
Table No.3 was presided over by Mrs. L. II.
Meyers and Mrs. Stansbury. Table No.
4 was presided over by Mrs. McIIalo and
Miss Maggie Howe. Tho enntectionery
stand was in charge of Mrs. E. C. Ford and
daughter. The fair will bo continued this
evening, when all who failed to go last
evening, should not miss tho opportunity
offered them to spend a few hours pleas
antly. Providing; for Grant.
There is a portion of the republican
party that will never be happy until Gen
eral Grant is provided for iu some way or
other. Just now there aro three proposi
tions in his interest before tho country,
Tho New York Times aud a number
of rich men want to raise a fund of
a quarter of a million of dollars to
provide a life pension for him. The
politicians of Pennsylvania who follow
the lead of Senator Don Cameron pro
pose to elect him United States senator
from that state, and the president, in his
message, suggests that he ho made captain
general of tho army. Nobody seems to
know what Grant desires since ho failed
in getting the nomination at Chicago. It
is clear, however, that ho wants something,
and thinks that the country owes him a
great deal more than it has given him. It
ho wcro satisfied to remain in retirement,
wo ohould hardly how of so many
schemes iu his behalf. It is truo that
Grant hus rendered the country great servico
but It Is also truo that he has been honored
and rewarded as few other men havo been
in any ago or in any country. Iu trying to
keep himself before tho public, however,
ho runs tho risk of becoming tiresome. He
is in tho prlmo of life yet, tuul power, per
haps, is sweet to him. Hu doesn't want to be
laid on tho shelf, lie is in danger, how.
ever, of injuring his famo and of losing tho
respect and esteem, which ho now enjoys
by continuing thrusting himself forward
for additional honors and rewards. It
seems to us that ho would consult his own
interests by seeking n dignified retirement.
If the pcoplo need his services again they
will not fail to notify him.

Division of Hours and Minutes.
Why is ono hour divided into sixty
minutes, aud each minulo again into
sixty seconds? This question is often
asked by intelligent children; and tho
answer is this: He havo sixty divisions
on the dials of our clocks utid watches,
because tho old Greek astronomer,
llipparchu:', who lived in tho second
century before Christ, accepted tho
Rabylonian system of reckoning time,
that system being sexigesitnnl. The
Babylonians were acquainted with the
decimal system; but for common or
practical purposes they counted by sosn
and surf, the sotsos representing sixty,
find tho saro,i sixty times six thirty
six hundred. From Ilipnarchus, that
mode of reckoning found iU way into
tho works of Ptolemy, about 150 A. 1).,
and hence was i-arricd down the stream

la Walter Ecatt's Country. "V.'Y
The Rhymer's tower still partly hangs
together, and the recent verification of
one of his best known predictions,
partly, perhaps, by virtue ot tho predic
tion itself, has furbished up the fumo of
the ancient wizard passing well, atleust
in the minds of the natives. Rut over
all this beautiful border land, rich just
now with the golden hues of autumn,
deepening here into brown, and bright
ening thereinto red, hangs the glamour
of a far greater magician than Thomas,
the rhymer, or that other warlock
whose grave is in Melrose abbey. All
is instinctively felt to have been made
his own forever and aye by "Sir Walter.'
At every turn rise fresh evidence of rii
kindly presence, of tho power of genius
to immortalize alike a moss grown ruin
or a babbling brook. From AsbieMiel,

The clean-shaven lawn is the paradise
of lawntennisonians, for thero is ample
space for playing three games at once,
and tho chatelaine, tho great-granddaughter
of tho poet, is truo to the
hospitable traditions of her family and
country. Equal liberality is displayed
with the show part of tho house, through
which, during the summer month, pours
a torrent of tourists, who havo a special
entrance reserved for them. Everybody
looks at the extraordinary'eolloction of
arms and relics made by tlio Wizard of
the north, the swords of Montrose and
the voungj'retender, Ilofer's rillo, Rob
Roys long unwieldly gun, Napoleon's:
pen, and so forth; but the real interest of
AbboLsford centres in tho writing-desk
at which Sir Walter passed so many
weary uphill hours, nnd the heavy
leathern chair in which ho sat. .
Hunting the Moose,
Mooso calling commences about the
1st of September and ends about the
15th of October. A full moon occur
ring between the middle and end of Sep
tember is tho best of all times. Tlio
best plan in calling is to fix upon a per
manent camp uiiu ui.iivu nun; expedi
tions of two or three days' duration
from it, returning to rest nnd get fresli
supplies. Then you enjoy the truo lux
ury of hunting. Then you feel really
and thoroughly independent and free.
The Indian carries your blanket, your
coat, a little tea, sugar and bread, a.
kettle and two tin pannikins. Tho hun
ter has enough to do to carry himself,
his rifle, ammunition, a small axe, hunt
ing knife, and a pair of field-glasses.
Thus accoutred, clad in a flannel shirt
and homespun continuations, moose
hide moccasins on your feet, your trous
ers tucked into woollen socks, your
arms unencumbered with that useless
article, a coat, you plungo into the
woods, tho sun your guide in clear
weather, your pocket-compass if it is
cloudy, tho beasts and birds and fishes
your companions; and wander through
tho wood at will, sleeping where the
fancy seizes you, "calling" if the nights
are calm, or still huntiug on a windy
day. Calling is tho most fascinating,
disappointing, exciting of nil sports.
You may be lucky at once and kill your
moose the first night you go out, per
haps at tho very lirst call you make.
You may bo weeks and weeks, pcrhap
the whole calling season, without get
ting a shot. Moose-calling is simple
enough in theory; iu practice it is im
mensely' ditlk'tilt of application. It
consists In imitating tho cry of tho ani
mal with a hollow cono made of birch
bark, nnd endeavoring by this means
to call up a mooso near enough to get
a shot at him by moonlight or in the
early morning. Ho will come straight (
up to you, within a few yards-wulk
right over you almost answering,
speaking," as the Indians term it, as
ho comes along, if nothing happens to
scare him; but that is a great if.Eati
