A chango has been made in the
manner of robbing the mail box at
the Rock Island depot, which Insures
the more frcrent forwarding of the
letters dcisitcd there. Heretofore
tho custom has been that this box
ha not been roblied as often as those
nearer the postofiieo, and between
1:3 p. m. on Saturday and Monday
morning, for instance,, no collection
was made. Henceforth it liecomes
tlie duty of railway (mail clerks on
the Chicago and West Liln-rty trains
to collect from this box when passing
through Rock Island. This will ol
viatc tho necessity of bringing the
mail to the tMistolVioc, anil hence it is
important that no drop letters bede-
posited in the lox,nnd mail intended
for city dcBvcry should lc put in
other boxes in that vicinur. Arrange

to the placing of another box nt some

Mesalliance is always interesting
when it occurs ontside of our own im
mediate circle of relatives and friends.
A man or vromau sacrifices social in
stincts, bids defiance to conventions and
follows tho simple promptinps of tho
heart and the result? Disngrceaule to
those most nearly concerned, bnt fasci
nating to tho ontsido world. Thero is
no subject ro fruitful for the novelist.
A well known novel, now widely read.
was saved by 'this. I will not name n,
for I cannot break literary confidences.
Tlie writer, a favorite living novelist,
had reached a joint in his story-when ev
erything, characters and events, seemed
to settle down to a deadly low level, or
dull commonplace. Ha was in despair.
A friend, an experienced uvin of U;c
world, gave Lim a word of advice: "In
troduce a mesalliance. That never fails
to enliven things." Tho novelist did so,
and his book is sellsns briskly today.
