An exchange contains the startling
news that "a carload of brick came in
for a walk through the park."
According to the "Financial lied
Book of America there are about
15.000 people in the United States who
are the possessors of fortunes of
$300,000 or more. The names of the
people who are happy in America on
fortunes of $30,000 or less, however,
would make a book many times as
large as the "lied Book."
An 18-ear-old messenger boy at
Orange, X. J., has disappeared after
forging and collecting two checks for
$7,500 and $2,300. Be was in the em
ploy of one of the trusts and showed
great adaptability for the business.
When he gets older we shall no doubt
hear of him as financiering some of
our great corporations on paper.
Servant girls are so scarce in north
ern Wisconsin that the United States
Indian agent at Ashland has detailed
50 Indian girls for domestic service.
He thinks he will have 50 more in a

kee. If the effort is successful, it
will open up a new field for the de
scendants f Mr. J At.
While heretofore very little if any
real cannel coal- has been found in
Illinois the important announcement
has been made that near the line be

of Peoria a l.Vfoot vein of pure can
nel coal has been found, and what is
more surprising the bed is underlaid
by a foot of iron ore. It is further
stated that the iron ore is .0 percent
The town board of Hoopeston has
aroused the wrath of Charley Bliss in
the Montgomery News, and he gives
the place the following laudatory no
tice: "The Hoopeston, 111., board of
education has adopted a resolution
ugainst selling second hand books to
children, claiming they are, liable to
spread contagious diseases. Hoopes
ton, it will be remembered, is the
model city of Illinois. Preachers stand
up in their pulpits and point to
Hoopeston as being second only to
the new Jerusalem. There is not a
saloon in the town and people go out
side the corporate limits to spit. This
is the town where Charley Warner
runs the Hoopeston Chronicle, and he
is so nice he refuses to advertise la
dies underwear in his paper for the
home merchants. A newcomer once
had a case of beer shipped him to
Hoopeston. That night he was cap
tured by a band of masked women
and boiled in oil. Every individual in
Hoopeston- has an individual chair to
sit in the same as they have individ
ual tooth brushes, and when the la
dies go calling they-have their chairs
carried along with them by boys who
are called "chair carriers." The men
change their underclothes and put on
clean shirts twice a day, the streets
sprinkled with lavender water in the
summer. The women wear sanitary
gloves whei they knead the dough
for- their bread, and all the food the
people eat is sterilized. If a house is
suspected of having bed-bugs in it
the place is quarantined. Special po
lice with large fly-swatters are em
ployed to kill the flies or run them
out of the town. If a fly is killed its
remains must be taken outside the
corporate limits and buried. We are
told that it is somewhat difficult to
arouse an interest, in religion in
Hoopeston because the people reason
that when they go to heaven the
change will be so slight that it will
hardly be noticed, hence the prospect
of experiencing the joys of the celes
tial paradise is not much of an in
ducement to Hoopeston people. Some
of the people, there, it is said, have
their clothes made with holes over
the shoulder blades to stick their
wings through, and everyone wears a
halo as big as a wash tub. The re
cent order of the Hoopeston board of
edniration prohibiting the use of sec
' ond hand books by the children is per
fectly right and proper, and the won
der is that they didn't think of it long
Cost of the Carnegie Libraries.
Carnegie libraries cost something,
Mr. Carnegie recently said: "I have
helped found 760 libraries and have
S00 more under advisement." This
will make, say, 1,500 in all. During
last year he gave 158 library buildings
at a cost to him of $6,679,000, so the
average cost of the buildings is $42,
270, and 1,500 of them will aggregate
$63,405,000. " Now, under the contract
with Mr. Carnegie, the cities blessed
must tax themselves annually 10 per
cent of the. cost of the. buildings to
provide funds for their maintenance.
This would be $6,304,500 every year in
addition to the interest on more than
$30,000,000 paid by the cities for li
brary sites. By these transactions
the libraries will cost Mr. Carnegie
each year, at 5 per cent interest on
his investment, $3,170,250, while the
cost to the cities at the same rate
will be $7,840,500, or two and a half
times as much.

CaaM of Lockjaw.
Lockjaw, or tetanus, is caused by a
bacillus or germ Which exists plenti
fully in street dirt. It is inactive as
long as exposed to the air,; but when
carried beneath the skin, as in wounds
caused by percussion caps or by rusty
nails, and when the air is excluded the
germ is aroused to activity and pro
duces the most virulent poison known.
These germs may be destroyed and
all danger of lockjaw avoided by ap
plying Chamberlain's Pain Balm free
ly as soon as the injury is received.
Pain Balm is an antiseptic and causes
cuts, bruises and like injuries to heal
without maturation and in one-third
the time required by the usual treat
ment. It is for tale by all druggists.
DAILY SHORT STORY
The Paymaster's Ride.
This is a true story related to me by
the brother of the man principally con
cerned. Only the name is changed.
Many years ago, when California was
Inhabited largely by people of Spanish
descent, John Nolan was an officer of
a lumber company at Sacramento. It
was one of his duties to go among the
lumber camps of the company in a lit
tle two seated wagon and pay off the
men. One evening while riding from
one camp to another Nolan saw the
figure of a woman standing in the road
ahead of him, evidently waltlug for
him to come tip.
"Will you give me a lift, siguor?" she
said when he reached her.
"Certainly. (let up beside me, or. If
you think it too crowded on the front
seat, lake the hind one."
"Thank you, slgnor," replied the wo
man. "I will take the seat that gives
the most room." And she climbed in at
"H'm!" said Nolan to himself. "She
Las an eye to correct behavior." And
he drove on. "It's a fine night," he re
marked by way of opening a conver
sation. "I think the moon must be at
"A tine night." repeated the woman
without adding any thing further. No
lan tried with several remarks to draw
her into conversation, but, failing,
relapsed into silence. The moonlit
plain over which he was driving, the
serene heavens through which he
queen of night was slowly moving, the
glittering stars, were far more attrac
tive than a woman who would not talk.
Nolan drove on. occupied with his own
thoughts, and was gradually forgetting
his companion, when, happening to
turn his head sidewise, he caught a
flash of moonlight reflected from some
ollshed surface behind him.
Now, there was nothing In the light
of the round disk in the heavens to stir
any emotions within John Nolan ex
cept those of the most serene character.
Why, then, should these few reflected
rays, this momentary glitter, cause his
heart to stand still and a cold shiver
to run down his back? What passed
through his mind was even quicker
than the flash of moonlight. It was
this: He was riding alone, with a
large sum of the company's money in
his possession. He was known far and
wide as the company's paymaster, and
this woman was sitting behind him
ready to plunge a knife Into hha In
order to obtain the money.
He was armed, but what use a weap
on at his hip In plain sight of the wo
man behind him? At the first move of
his hand to grasp it a foot of cold steel
would be thrust between his ribs.
There was but one chance for him. and
that a remote one he must appear to
be without suspicion and Invent some
artifice to secure an advantage.
Turning partly sidewise, he address
ed a remark to her, keeping In that
position as If to converse the more
readily, but without in the least ap
pearing to be aware of her purpose. As
he turned, her arm that had been raised
sank and her hand found concealment
In the folds of her dress. One of No
lan's eyes was strained to watch her,
while the other was cast ahead at a
forest they would soon enter. He
knew that iu the struggle which was
Inevitable he would have an advantage
on the open plain. Within the shadow
of the wood there would be no ray of
moonlight to reveal to him an over
hanging dagger. He must devise be
fore they reached the wood some ex
pedient either to get rid of the woman
or force her to show her hand.
"Get up, you lazy beast," he said to
his horse. "At this rate we'll be out
all night." And. striking at the an
imal with his whip, he contrived to
drop it in the road.
"Whoa!" . He pretended to try to
stop the horse at once, but took pains
that he should leave some interval be
tween them and the fallen whip.
"I've dropped my whip," he said to
the woman. "Would you mind getting
it "for me?"
The woman hesitated a moment, then
got down and went back for the whip.
The moment she picked it up Nolan
lashed the horse with the reins and
started on. The woman, seeing that
she had been tricked, ran for the
Then began a race which Nolan
feared was one between life and death.
Ills horse, which was merely a hack,
broke Into a lope, but made no great
speed. The woman, on the contrary,
ran swiftly and iu a few minutes
caught hold of the tailboard of the
wagon. Nolan seized the weapon near
est at hand, the seat the woman had
been sitting on, and began to belabor
her over the head. But her head was
hard, and she was persistent. While
she ran she was makiug efforts to
climb over the dashboard and get into
the wagon. Finally In one of these at
tempts her feet left the ground, and
she was poised on the tailltoard.
Now, Nolan even in self protection
had no stomach for killing a woman.
Thus far he had neither shot at her
nor made any effort to stab her. But
when he saw her about to force an
entrance he used the nest most ef
fective weapon to the seat his boot.
With a kick under the cheek he laid
her unconscious in the road. There he
left her to hurry on to the lumber
Later when a party of lumbermen
stopped where the affair had occurred
they found the fallen robber still lying
in the road.
"That's no woman," said one of the
party, peering at the face upturned to
the moonlight. "That's that Mexican
gambler Yerez. He went broke yester
day and evidently tried to recoup by
robbing the paymaster."

Port Byron, Oct. 17. Farmers in
the vicinity of Warner's crossing are
gratified over the latest action taken
by the highway commissioners of
Hampton township, who have now de
cided that the petition prayed for by
the Bock Island Improvement com
pany be not granted and that the fa
vorable action of the commissioners
taken Oct. 1 be repealed. At the meet
ing Oct. 1 the petitioners granted the
petition of the company for a new
road and the right to build a viaduct
providing that the inducements which
the Bock Islaitd Improvement com
pany promised were filed with the
town clerk before or on Oct. 5. For
some reason the company failed to
place on file these inducements and
when the commissioners met Oct. 5
they passed the following resolution:
"Whereas, The Rock Island Im

neglected to file said inducements;

This means that the old road to
Watertown. generally known as the

used as it has for years, and that the
railroad will for the present be cross

cure you without pain, danger, cutting" or detention from business. 1
am able to make this statement after having' treated, cases which
some of the most learned physicians of the United States had pro
I want every ruptured per
0:1 who reads this to come and
have a talk withe me. It will
not coL-t you a penny. 1 will
explain to you how you can
be permanently cured of liup
ture. It makes no difference
how skeptical you man be. I
will produce eidence to con
vince you that I am able to
give you a permanent cure
and forever rid you of a life
No pay will be received by
ivo until the patient is satis
lied he is cured and can stand
any kind of a test. There is
no doctor or combination of
doctors, or medical institute
that will treat rupture on the
DANK REFERENCE. A large number of patients have deposited
the fee in the Davenport Union Savings Dank, and thus far every dol
lar so deposited has by the patient's order been turned over to me
within 60 days, which is the time required to cure any case.
I am the inventor of the "Fidelity" Rupture Cure Method which I
have registered in the United States Patent office, and have done
more to systematize and reduce to practice a harmless and perma
nent cure for Rupture than any other living- physician. 1 have edu
cated, by giving special courses of instruction, several hundred phy
sicians who are now using my treatment in all parts of the world.
For 12 years I have devoted my entire professional attention to this
specialty, and without doubt have examined and treated more
ruptured people than any other physician in the world.
The- following" are the names of a few men that have been cured
by me in the last year. 1 have also cured many women and children
whose nanus 1 do not publish:
