cats which King Henry V possessed.
The present owner imported it
sometime ago, and on its arrival it
had every courtesv shown it. His
felinehip was admired by frequent
ers of the store, and was the pride of
the owner. It is a proud genteel

gorical conversations with it. The
cat was taken suddenly ill a little
over a week ago, and its condition
became very alarming. Everythin

the suffering cat, which seemed to
be undergoing terrible agony. Car

other remedies were prescribed
but without avail. One thing

1 he other morning while seated in
the front of his store smoking his
usual Havanna and gazing into
space, gentle footsteps were beard
approaching on the show case behind
him. Looking around, the feline was
seen strolling in the direction of its
master with tail erect, mustache
curled and a smile of apparent con
tentment in its face. He jumped up
and received the Thomas with open
arms with as much affection and jov
as if a long-lost or supposed-to-be-

telling the story to everybody. The

nature. Much.', amusement was
afforded in this way, and nothing
was attempted that would necessi

injury, until everything imaginable
of a tame undertaking had been tried.
Finally one of the fellows suggested
that "an empty water pail be placed

his arrival a few months since, been
entertaining bis associates while at
gatherings and meals of the differ

A JOYFUL SOCIAL OCCASION.
CALLING THE MEETING.
President Kent and the Western Rase Hull
Secretary McIIugb. of the Rock
Island-Moline base ball club, has a
letter and a telegram from President
Kent, of the Western Base Ball asso
ciation, which indicate that while he
is seeking to have a meeting of the
Western Base Ball association to act
on Rock Island's plea for hearing on
its shameful expulsion, there is a
strong protest from many of the
clubs. As this spirit merely shows a
conspiracy, a reckless disregard for
fairness toward one of the original
cities ef the leagne, a purpose to keep

Island-Moline gate receipts were
$2,500 greater than those at (juincy
and $1,800 over those at Jackson
ville. The Bee thinks that Jackson
ville and (Juincy should be substi
tuted bv Kock Island-Moline and
Sioux City. The Omaha Herald is
even more outspoken than the Bee
in favor of the restoration or the
Rock Island-Molines to a place in the
league. It pronounces their dis
franchisement "a blot on the records
of the association." It also adds
