The democrats fared pretty well in
the municipal elections throughout
the country yesterday. In Cleveland,
Farlev, the democratic mayoralty can
didate, defeated McKisson, republican,
by :j,000 while in the other Buckeye
cities cf Dayton and Newark the dem
ocrats swept everything. Evansville,
Ind.. also elected a democratic mayor.
So did Keokuk, Iowa, and most of the
cities in the state of Michigan in
which elections were held.
News comes from Galesburg of a
pathetic circumstance: Miss Bertha
Willis, daughter of Dr. J. H Willis,
died yesterday and will le buried
Wednesday, the day when she was to
marry Julius Skoekel, of Kewanee.
The case is a pathetic one. Mi9s Willis
was an accomplished girl and bad
many friends in this ami Henry coun
ties. Two weeks ago she was taken
ill with mumps, followed by quinsy.
Mr. Skoekel was a constant attendant
at her bedside. She refused to enter
tain any proposition to ostpone the
wedding on account of her illness.
The transport licet of the United

gress is done in committee and how
much of this work is of a negative
character. Of 18.463 bills and joint
resolutions introduced in the two
houses of the last congress, 1,457, or
less than 8 per cent, became law.
The house was more conservative in
its legislation than the senate,
though the latter is commonly sup
posed to spend so much time in de
late. There were 12,608 measures
introduced in the house, an average
of 35 for each member. Of these
only 1,081, or 8A per cent, were
pa.-sed by the bouse and 946 were
concurred" in by the senate, all but
four receiving" executive approval;
5.855 were introduced in the senate,
an average of 65 to each senator, and
1,173 of these were passed, or more
than 20 per cent: but the house con
curred in only Lit ol tnem, or less
than half of" the measures sent to it
by 1 he senate. Of course, a vast pro-
ortion of all these rejected proposi
tions are merely of private concern,
but thev all help to consume time.
and the record of conjrress is to be
judged not only by what it does, but
bv what it does not do. '

Kobbed the Crave.
A startling incident of which Mr.
John Oliver, of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows:
"I was in a most dieadful condition.

Called Grain-O. It is a delicious, ap
petizing, nourishing food drink to
take the place of coffee. Sold by all
grocers and liked by all who "have
used it lecause when properly pre

but it is free from all its injurious
properties. Grain-O aids digestion
and strengthens the nerves. It is not
a stimulant, but a health builder, and
children, as well as adults, can drink
it with great benefit. Costs about
one-fourth as much as coffee. 15 and
