"Park" en Dubuque.
One of the funny men of "Puck," the
celebrated illustrated weekly, has been
poking fun at Dubuque, as follows:
In 1830 or thereabouts a Frenchman
named Jollen DuBuque discovered the
town that now bears bis name, and after
giving directions that bis name should be
unhinged and nailed together to make it
look like an English word, he died, and
was buried somewhere else.
Dubuque lies on the banks of the Mis
sissippi and the inhabitants lie on the
. banks and wonder how they can fix the
census man to keep up with Des Moines.
Jt is called the Key City and a standing
reward to discover the reason still re
Dubuque baa a handsome opera house
and is a very lively show town. Last year
there were two performances of "Uncle
Tom's Cabin." When there is nothing
else on the boards the amateurs play
"The Colleen Bawn." Dubuque is noted
for pretty girls; that is, they are noted
when they come there from Galena.
The young men are very promising, ac
cording to the tailors, and many have
been known to make their mark on the
municipal rock pile.
The streets are kept in good repair for
the convenience of farmers who wish to
let their teams run away. This is a daily
spectacle en Main street, and is believed
. to attract trade.
Nothing historical has ever happened
in Dubuque, except the arrival of Senator
Allison, from Ohio. The only remaining
objects oi interest are ine note Is, or which

STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS' SISTER.
Poatmiti"eu at Clifton Springs at
the Ago of Seventy-eight.
Mrs. Sarah A. Granger was appointed
postmistress at Clifton Springs by President
Cleveland. Those not already aware of tbe
fact may be interested to learn that Mrs.
Granger Is the sister of Stephen A. Douglas.
She was first appointed to the office which
she now holds by President Arthur, during
the latter part of his term. She has a deputy
in the person of Eugene K. Hoyt, her grand
son, a capable and popular young man, with
whom she resides. Mrs. Granger, now in her
sevei)-eihth year, appears much younger.
She is universally esteemed for many excel
lent qualities of mind aud heart, possessing
not a few of the traits which distinguished uer
brother, and resembling him closely hi form
Mrs. Granger is justly proud of her broth
er s memory, and from her intimate knowl
edge of his history from childhood and her
personal interest in his career sue is enabled
to spunk more accurately of many events in
which he figured than any other person liv
ing. She laughed heartily when The World
correspondent referred to Douglas famous
visit to his mother while he was a candidate
"The caricatures in the Republican papers
at that time worried mother terribly ,n she
said, 'anil made me very angry. One pict
ure, in which mother was represented as a
washerwoman at Work over the tub, grieved
her very much, and everything I saw in the
papers against my brother made me fairly
frantic with rage. Brother Steve used to
laugh and say, 'You won't mind such things
after you've seen as much of them as 1 have.'"
Mrs. Granger then related incidents con
nected with the visit mentioned how her
brother went down to the little gate before
the house and waved his white felt hat to the
immense delegations from surrounding towns,
who halted in turn and cheered for the Little
Giant of Illinois; how her .mother could not
be induced to go to the village and hear
Stephen's speech that day ; how she asked her
brother what he was going to say, and he re
plied: "I never know wliat I am going to
say. God will put words into my mouth
when I am ready to talk." The vast crowd
that heard Douglas speak that day laughed
and cheered with tremendous enthusiasm
when he said: "At last 1 have found my
mother, and, thank God, the good old lady is
olive and well." In September, 18S5, Mrs.
Granger visited her native place at Brandon,
Vt., scarcely expecting to find a person living
who would know her. But an old schoolmas
ter at the age of ftj years remembered her.
Of her old schoolmates she found six, and the
clergyman who married her came sixteen
miles to pay her a visit. She was royally en
tertained. The academy where she and her
brother attended school remained unchanged,
and many other old landmarks recalled vivid
ly to her mind the scenes of her childhood.
It was here that Stephen A. Douglas, at the
age of 11 years, proved himself a born orator.
In company with his mother and sister he at
tended the meetings of a debating society, in
which an overbearing and pompous dispu
tant named Conant usually had things his
own way. Finally one night the boy Douglas
asked permission of the society's president to
reply to Coimntv remarks at a future meet
ing. The request was granted, and at the
next meeting after hearing what Conant
had to say, young Douglas arose, and to the
astonishment and delight of all in the room
(excepting ' Conant, who was not delighted),
replied in a manner that not only silenced
Conant, but so exasperated him that he with
drew from the society.
In 1830 the family removed to Clifton
Springs. The place which they made their
home is situated about a milo west of the vil
lage. It fa known as the Granger homestead.
and is still the property of Mrs. Granger.
Young Douglas was sent to Cananduigua
academy, ten miles distant. Be studied there
Mrs. Granger's husband, Julius N. Granger,
a lea a lew years ago, having been for thirty-
two years in the service of the government at
ashington. Among his neighbors at Clif
ton Springs he was held in high esteem. He
was a justice of the peace for eighteen years.
His acquaintance among the statesmen of his
time was very wido, and he numbered among
his friends many of the most eminent men
who have left their impress upon the legisla
tion of tbe country. Clifton Springs (S. Y.)

St. Cutbhert, that out and out woman
hater, would have no female creature about
his place in Lindlsfarne, not suffering even a
cow, saying, "Where there was a cow there
must be a woman, and where there was a
woman there must be mischief." In the
cathedral at Durham, dedicated to him, a
black cross in the pavement marked the spot
beyond w! ich no woman was allowed to
pas. In ISiS Edward III and his queen
went to the priory at Durham, where they
lodged together. In the middle of the night
a monk broke rudely into their room, saying
to the queen that St. Cnthbert loved not her
sex, and that she must up and go. Thequeon
tumbled out of !ed, undressed as she was,
and spent the rest of the night in the churcli,
praying fur pardon to the patron saint whom
she had offended. In 1417 two servant gir!a
dressed themselves as men and "impiously

For ignorance can never cope
With such a foe as IVORY Soap.' "
