The police department is notified
by the La Crosse authorities to be on
the lookout lor a swindling clairvoy
ant, who mado that city his head'
quarters for a limited time, much to
tbe sorrow ol merchants and others.
He is described as a middle-aged man
with light complexion and brown
hair, light mustache and light blue
eyes. He dresses neatly and is ap
parently of Swedish birth, although
his speech does not suggest the be-
nei. no uses poor grammar and
hesitates while speaking and flashes
several large diamonds and also a
large roll of greenbacks. He left La
Crosse in company with a young lady
wuom ne represented as his wife and
for whom he purchased a sealskin
cican ana oeaver caoe before depart
ing. The man in question represents
uimseit as rrol. Arno and on ar
nving m a city mates a
great flash through the news
papers of his wonderful Dowers.
His most successful monev-makinr
scheme is in telling people visiting
mm mat tnere are large sums of
money buried on their premises, and
agrees to locate it for one-quarter of
the amount. Of course there is
nothing to loose in that game so far.
But Prof. Arno amends his proposi
tion by claiming that in order to ac
complish the act without fear of fail
ure an envelope containing a neat
sum must be placed under the call
er's pillow to dream on a certain
length of time and then to be re
turned to Prof. Arno and the buried
fortune will be located. But the pro
fessor examines the envelope con
taining the monev and while doing
so exchanges it for one full of paper,
on which the party dreams, only to
find after several days that the pro
fessor has flown. He works other
games also and does considerable
carriage riding and goes through all
sorts of showy performances.

when a stranger with dark whiskers
struck np a conversation with him.
Mr. alentine was asked to walk
outside. Near the Milwaukee denot
smooth-faced young man came up
to Mr. Valentine's friend and de
manded the payment of a bill imme
diately.' The man said he only had
a ouu check and asked his creditor
to wait a few days. But he could
not do it. So Mr. Valentine was
aked to loan his friend some money
to bo returned at Cable. The old
man turned out his pockets. He had
but $3.50. But they got it.
Lighting the Tale Log.
A cuctom at ono time prevalent iu
Euglnud and still observed iu some of
the northern districts of the eld country
is that of placing aa immense log ot
wood eoiiK'tiuies the root of a great
tree in tho wide chimney place. This
log is ofteu called tho vale log, and it
was on Christmas eve that it was pnt on
thowido hearth. Around it would gath

was the occasion of a great deal of cere
mony. There were uwmc and rejoicing,
while the one authorized to light it was
obliged to have clean baudd.
It was always lighted with a brand

The following anecdote is related of
Prince Bismarck, and whether true or
not is good enough to be repeated : While
waiting in the emperor's antechamber
one day the prince beard music coming
from the imperial nursery. He there
fore entered and found tbe young crown
prince amusing himself at the piano
while his younger brothers were danc
ing. The children at once seized Uncle
Bismarck and insisted that be should
take a turn at the piano. Prince Bis
marck complied, and in the midst of
the fun the kaiser entered, fie watched
the sceno for a moment and then said.
"What, prince, are you already making
my children dance to yonr tune?"

"Good Morning! Carpets?" Yes sir, indeed we have. Just step
this way. See those long lines of shelves, they arc fairly loaded
with carpets of every grade, from Hemp and Rag to Ingrain and
Body Brussels. Just glance at those handsome patterns there arc
carpets for the rich and carpets for the poor. Cast your eye over
these Gobelins, Victorias and Velvets aren't they beauties? What
richer goods would you want spread out on your floor than those
that lie before you? And yet many of them are comparatively low
in price. Here again feast your eyes on these varigatcd figures in
Ingrains. You can walk up and down the room and find something
to suit the elaborate furnishings of a stately drawing room, library
or parlor, or you can match the more sober taste of a plain cozy
home. See that grand display of Room Rugs spread out on that
side. Note the many beautiful new figures and the exquisite shades
and colorings. These have never been shown before in such an ar
ray anywhere in this territory. Down there you see those beautiful
. Straw Mattings in Chinese and Japanese. They arc a feature in
themselves and are being marked down where you can get them
easily. Here at the end we are showing our Oilcloths and Lin
oleums, the latter eight and sixteen quarters wide. You can get
JUST WHAT YOU WANT
And we are certain wou will be satisfied. Size up that long row of
Hall and Stair Carpets of many makes and fashionable designs.
Those are what make a home presentable at first sight. Here, there
and everywhere about you arc Carpets and Rugs of all prices, from
the highest to the lowest. You must be going to carpet a parlor, bed
room, or make some change in your dining room floor this spring,
so keep us in mind and look at our line. In endless array we arc
showing Cocoa Matting, French Wilton Rugs, La Paris Rugs, Fur
Rugs and Tapestry and Body Brussells. Remember our men are
