It Is a notable fact that almost every
newspaper Is taken uj nowadays in tell
ing of the celebration of Washington's
birthday in almost evsry American com
munity, on tbe 23d day of this month
tomorrow. This indicates a growing
faith, veneration and admiration for tbe
one man who shared with Lincoln tbe
highest place in tbe affection of tbe
American people. Il is a goodly sign to
see the children of ten later republican,
thus returning to the ihrine of tbe father
of this country, to pa; their homage and
respect. This and th; growth of tbe ob
servance of Lincnlc's birthday, are
among tbe better signs of the times. It
is good to keep iba old land marks. It
is good to reverence old fashioned
things. It lagood to Co homage to thoe
who have Insured the greutnegs of the
republic. Tbe birthdays of Waabington,
Lincoln and Grant all should be observed
every year in every American community
where patriotism is aiimirmi and love of
country holds rule.

road. Tbe hall of the A. O. U. W. was
placed at the disposal of the order for re
ception and supper purposes, Davis
it Co., of Davenport, having charge
of the collation. The dancing hall
had been handsomely and appro
priately decorated with evergreen and
ornamented with red, green and
white flags over which bund lighted
lanterns of the same colors. Tbe letters
ef the order. "O. R. C." and "P. F.,"
were nicely gronped on the wall ever tbe
band platform. Bleuer's orchestra, with
Geo. Stroehle prompter, furnished music
for tbe merry dancers. Tbe programmes

THE E P. BANQUET.
St. Paul Lodge 107. Knights of
Pythias, observed the silver anniversary
of tbe Pythian order in an s! a borate
banquet at Harms' res taurjnt .ast night.
Harry Smyths had prepared a tine spread
which the Sir Knights and their friends
relished to the fullest extent, after
which there were a number of informal
toasts with happy responses, will ;h all
She Dia np the Barber.
The barber is a proverbially modest
personage, and while ho probably has
more men at his mercy in a single day
than those In other walks of life do In a
life time, he seldom takes advantage of
his opportunities, no matter how aggra
vating may be the occasion to do so. A
modern and very necessary adjunct to tbe
lonsorial parlor is the bath room, and
while the fair sex is not predominant
among the regular patrons of tbe barber's
art, it happens some times that tbe
bath room possesses attractions. This
happeued to be the case yesterday after
noon, when a quiet dame led her liege
lord into one of the centrally located
shops of the city and asked that he be
washed. An apartment with abundance
of water and aoap was placed at his dis
posal, and while be was undergoing the
novel experience, his considerate and
conservative better-half decided to sub
mit herself to the same transformation,
and with this end in view had prepared
for her temporary sojourn a stall adjoin
ing that of her duke. Tbe barber mean
while was strutting about with an ex
pression of countenance which soemed to
reflect the self congratulatory thought:
Tve done a great act for humanity,"
wh-n suddenly there came from the direc
tion of the bath tub a series of
discordant notes a conglomeration of
male and female tones that made tbe hair
of the barber stand eiect and grow a fresh
hirsute crop on the face of tbe victim he
had just shaved. The barber was nun
plussed; what had happened he could
not imagine, and yet for some reason he
did not dare to investigate. But finally
from tho unbroken lingo tbe barber was
able to detect certain syllables about
"cold water." and about tbe "Mississippi
being as good as this" and then tbe idea
dawned thai one or both of the occupants
of tbe bah rooms bad turned the wrong
faucet. The barbsr attempted from bis
remote corner of tbe room to explain to
his unceremonious guests the eause of
their discomfiture, but they refused to be
comforted, and filing out into the pres
ence of the awe stricken barber and those
who were wailing their turns, poured
forth such a volly of undlscernible stuff
as would cause the dead to come forth
had it been anywhere within a half mile
of a cemetery. Only one word in tho
string of epithets of condemnation that
escaped the angry lips of the injured
pair could be caught. It slid off
the well oiled tongue of the feminine
representative. The barber caught it
and cut it up in little chunks with a
raeor so that he may be able, at his
leisure, to dissect it, when he will pub
lish the analysia. The word was "Con
selle." The barber was so rattled at this that
he bid the unhappy pair to go forth
and seek other places where cleanliness
is bought at lower figures. The ad
monition was heeded, and, saying some
thing that sounded like "whistle for
your money I" the Indignant champion
of woman suffrage led her submissive
master out upon the highway. Then
tbe barber turned his skill to plastering up
tbe ear he had sawed off of the man in
bis chair durin g tbe exoitemec t.
