Milan, Sept. 26 The business sit
uation of Milrn in general seems to
note an improvement daring the last
few week. What the canse of it is
we have not been able to find out,
but it is either the new tariff bill or
the settlement of all the late labor
troubles and strikes. Saturday
there was not enough hitching room
for the farmers to tie their teams.
One good improvement is also no
ticed, the grocers of Milan will on
and after Oct. 1 close their places of
business at 8 o'clock p. m. This
will enable them to take a long
needed rest, and also to do as mnch
business in 12 hours as in 14, when
the people are given to understand
that the grocer will not be at his
store at all Lours of the night. This
rule is in force in Rock Island, and
we are glad that the merchants of
Milan are awakcVith the times.

Most persons in this vicinity are
acquainted with Miss Mary Searle.
When James Searle, her fa'ther, wai

Miss Searle will be remembered as a
teacher in Zuma township years ago.
Then t-he became a teacher in one of
the Moline schools. After that hav
ing a desire to become an artist, her
attention was turned in that direc
tion and she became an art student;
then she launched forth and we hear
of her following her chosen profes
sion in Chicago, and then as a teach,
er in Pennsylvania and the city of
New York. Then her ambition in.
duced her to cross the ocean, going
by the way of Scotland to France:
Remaining in France a couple of
years, she returns to Chicago and is
again following her profession. Then
for a change and to spend her vaca.
tion, she takes a 500-mile skip to Sac
county, Iowa, to see her brother,
Clark Searle, and family, whom she
had not seen for a number of years.
We finally caught np with her on
Wednesday last upon the fair
grounds at Joslin, and after the nsual
greeting, and a shake of the hand
and a short conversation, she said
"good bye," as she was leaving on
the evening train for Chicago, and
from thence goes to Pennsylvania.
We would not be in the least sur
prised to hear of her in London, Con
stantinople or Jerusalem.

THE MOUNTAIN LABORED.
And It Brought Forth Drftth mntl Desola
tion to a State of Columbtak
About 1 Jn miles from the town of
Rio Blanco, state of Cauca, Colombia, a
remarkable geological phenomenon has
recently created great excitement A
mountain ridge, called Cerror do Cruz
Loma, suddenly cast a large part of its
upper levels into neighboring rivers,
carrying death and destruction in its
For some days before prolonged sub
terranean sounds a sort of hoarse rum
bling and roaring were heard, indicat
ing that something serlons was about to
occur, and ou the date mentioned the
upper part of the hill suddenly caved
in, tho enormous quantity of earth de
scending to and obstructing the course
of the rivers Gnachicono, Molino and
others. It is feared that the overflow of
the rivers will occasion an extensive in
undation, or that, breaking away the
earth dam, wholo villages and valuable
properties will be destroyed. As an im
mediate result of this occurrence 12 per
sons were killed, besides a large num
ber of horses and cattle.
It seems only natural to attribute this
phenomenon to the eruption of the So
tara volcano, which for some, time has
boeu observed to bo covered with snow
like vapor oud clouds. The departmen
tal government, justly alarmed by this
occurrence, has appointed a commisf ion
of engineers to investigate tho matter.

The news that no fewer than 120,000
persons have been swept away by the
plague in the district of Canton give
interest to the results of the scientific in

experts who have been 6tuiying for
several years at the Koch institute were
sent by their government to make In

About the only man who goes on the
floor of tho house who has no right there
is Don Dickinson. The man from Michi
gan has never been in congress and has
no right to mingle with members on
the floor during the session. But the
doorkeepers pay no attention when he
walks in, and it may be that they re
gard bim as a personal representative of
Mr. Cleveland. No one on the floor
makes a formal objection to his pres
ence, so he stays. If any congressman
should object the doorkeepers would
have to do their duty and refuse him
