A young gontleman of Teutonic ori
gin, a rctldont of the Fourth ward and a
stranger in tho city, wandered into
Christian church a few Sabbaths ago, un
der tho impression tbut it was tho 'Wash
ington beer ball. Approaching tho tnblo
in front of tho pulpit, ho rapped on it
with his knuckles, and, winking at a pious
individual near, called for "zwcl glass la
ger," and seated hlmeoll to nwait its ar
rival. Thoro being no rcsponso to the de
mand tho young man was about to repeat
it, when ho was gravely informed that lie
was not in n beer garden, but in n houso of
worship whoro, if ho would soat himsolf
they would feed him upon a spiritual food
which he would relish qulto us keenly as
his foaming lager. Replying that ho
"wasn't hungry," the innocent stranger
left the building, and resumed his hunt
for tho coveted lager.
Johnny Marnk.l has succeeded to tho
editorial chair of tho 'Assumption Press,
through trials and struggles that would
havo foiled tho purposes of any other than
a bravo boart. Commencing with a circu
lation of ono hundred nnd fifty, Johnny
iooks rorwaru to tho time whou his papor
"shall have a larger list than any other
wookly Journal in Central Illinois." Ho
intends to nchiovo this distinction for tho
'Press' by "over directing its quill in tho
path of truth and righteousness, nnd by
lending no assistance whatever to any
creed, party or ring, whether political or
otherwise." On such a platform Johnny
ought to succeed. If ho docs not, wo shall
stubbornly roslst the conviction tl.at tho
citizens of Assumption "know what's
what," or havo any disposition to know it.

bonding tlio tonguo of tho rood, a slight
variation in tlio stylo of bond making qulto

So difficult and pccullai In this depart

this art.
Thoro are only two or three of tho load
