Blessed is the household thut can count
among its inmates a grandfather or a grand
mother, some one who has lived long enough
to value, things in their true proportion, to
whom worldly wealth and honors is of less
value than love and friendship and home en
joyments. Who so well as grandmother can
sympathize with Johnnie's struggles with his
arithmetic lesson or with Kate's homesickness
on a visit which she planned herself f She
may have forgotten the complications of
compound proportion orof cube root, but she
has such faith in Johnnie and such pride in
his achievements that he-can't disappoint her
and tust come out conqueror. She may have
advised against Kutie's visit, but she forgets
all this and remembers only how she felt on a
similar occasion sixty years ago or so.
Who like grandfather can advise father in
hia businew affairs or Tommy in his garden
ing experiments with equal readiness as one
who has passed through similar experiences,
or who can so bring each to uuderstand the
other's trials and perplexities? People who
are busy from morning till night sometimes
get so absorbed in their own tasks as to lose
sympathy with the different work and worry
of others, and so almost unconsciously father
may drift away from son or mother from
daughter. The presence of one equally de
roted to all and with leisure to enter into the
feelings of each may be a wonderful harmon
iser of differences. Thow who neglect the
old people or try to shut them out of their
lives may lose more than the ones they thus
wrong. Lewiston Journal.
Dinner Table Decorations.
The fine damask cloth, in all its tatiny per
fection, is recovering its supremacy, for in
London, at all events, brocaded oc embroid
ered slips are fast losing ground. They are
artistic, but conuu, and iu these duya that is
enough to settle any claim to distinction. Of
course if, as some people have, there is a
piece of gold or silver brocade handy, the
artistic beauty of the material would be its
excuse and it would be appropriate for a sil
ver wedding, but if there is nothing of
that intrinsically valuable kind available,
trust to the finest damask and as much silver
or plate as you can collect. Cut glare dessert
eta and vases are most fashionable and are
particularly beautiful flower holders. Old
fashioned cake baskets, filled with wet moss
and white flowers, such as arums, stephano
tis, etc., look lovely, while the old fashioned
decanter stands are simply perfect filled in
the same way and lightly veiled in maiden
hair, or gold or silver fern.
If plate or cut gloss is not easily attainable
the London florists use for wedding break
fasts baskets of different shapes, lined with
white plush or brocade, in which are hidden
receptacles for water, and these are filled
with flowers and green, the latter trailing
over the handles and being kept in place by
streamers of satin ribbon and silver cord,
while the bags of satin or brocade, shaped
like sacks and caught in round the neck with
silver cord, form delicious cachepots. Such
bags are easy to make and are most effective
if made loose enough, while entirely hiding
the vaae or pot, to fall carelessly on the table.
They look extremely well mixed with the
plush or satin lined baskets, which can be
made from Zulu hats, pinched into proper
shape and kept in with fine wire. These hats
are pretty silvered with Judson's silver paint
and lined fully with soft white merveilleux;
run a piece of florist's wire all round the edge
of the hat and fasten on a wire handle, which
should be loosely covered with a piece of
merveilleux, then a flot of white late (Breton
la the lightest), with silver cord twisted
through it and tied in a full bow and ends at
the top, with a tiny bouquet of orange flow
ers caught in the knot. London Queen.
, . Tlie New Court Dreae.
I hear that there has been a regular muddle
about the new court dress, as it is the fash
Ion to call it. The original intention was
that this high costume should be allowed to
be worn at the early drawing rooms (i. e.,
those held during February and March) by
any one who preferred. Ultimately, how
ever, for some reason or no reason, the queen
changed her mind, and the ukase, which
every one had by this time seen, was issued.
The fact is that the alteration of the rules
Is really a step backward. Hitherto a lady,
whose application to wear a high dress
was supported by a medical certificate, has
obtained permission as a matter of course,
and she could have her dress arranged pre
cisely as she chose. In future, however,
while the medical certificate is still required,
the lady must wear a high dress cut exactly
after one of the prescribed patterns. Lon

Olive Schreiner, the author of the "Story
of an African Farm," is only half German.
Bar father was a German missionary, who
married the 18-year-old daughter of an Eng
lish Prssb-terian minister. Olive was the
ninth of their family of twelve children, all
born at a lonely mission station in South
Africa. There were no white neighbors near
the mission station, and it was years before
the child saw a town; yet, when she waa 4
years old, the idea of Loudon had soiled her,
and it had grown the desire of her life to go
there. With this object she began saving up
her pennies, in the belief that when she had
a pound It would be sufficient to defray the
expenses of the Journey. When she found
that sum waa scarcely a sufficient one for her
purpose she determined to put off her visit
for awhile; but the intention never left her,
and when at length, seven years ago, she
found herself at last in the city of her
dreams, there waa no disappointment In the
realisation of the long cherished desire.

The Davenport papers are .getting
wrought up to a high state of displeasure
orer the appointment of Dr. G. G. Craig,
of this city, as post surgeon of Rock Isl

character of Dr. Urate.
The whole trouble with the Davenport
kickers is that a physician from their city
was not selected as post surgeon. It was
expected that Dr. Grant would be re
moved, and anticipating that event Dr.
Allen, a republican physician, put forth
every effort to secure .the appointment,
and because he was defeated in his
purpose, he or his friends (and he could
close their mouths if he desired) have
systematically gone to work to have Dr.
Craig's appointment reconsidered, and
in their efforts to do so, have instituted
unfair and despicable methods to gain
this end. While Dr. Craig has been es
pecially careful not to say anything det
rimental to Dr. Allen, profession
ally or otherwise, and advised his friends
to indulge in no personalities whatever,
that gentleman has failed to extend the
same courtesy to Dr. Craig.
The Argus is not given to endorsing
repub'.ican appointments, but it likes to
see fair play. When President Clevo
land appointed Dr. Grant four years ago,
the Arutjs endorsed the appointment,
although it necessitated the removal of a
Rock Island phjsician. The much
boasted civil service reform myth of the
republican administration having been
already dispelled, the Aruds looks for
a general sweep of democratic officials in
all stations of public service. And in
this particular case, while we would like
to see Dr. Grant retained, as a democrat,
it is clear to see that it is the intention of
the administration to replace him with a
republican in fact this end has already
been accomplished. The united attack
upon Dr. Craig by the Davenport press,
indicates a tendency to make it an affair
of Davenport against Rock Island, a
spirit of selfishness which we regret to see

The University of Illinois offers one

student who obtains the highest average,

first Friday and Saturday in June, 1889,

The persons who desire to enter the
examination must be residents of the
county, and must be not less than fifteen
years of age.
Each contestant may choose one of the
following lists of studies as that upon
which he will be examined, viz:
1. To enter upon a technical course
in the university: Algebra, including
quadratic equations; geometry, plane
and solid; natural philosophy; physiol
ogy; botany; English composition.
2. To enter upon a literary course in
the university: algebra and geometry as
in the first list; natural philosophy or
physiology; four books of Cwsar's com

in the common English branches.
The scholarship, if secured, will be
good for a four years' course in the uni

from the payment of fees to the amount
of ninety dollars. If pupils from ac

The county superintendent is not re

might wish to compete may have an op
