be saw tbe horse. A fat, plump, frisky

animal with scarcely enough animation
to lift its feet. Mr. Tindall coull scarce

evidences of cruelty to the horse that bad

It waa learned that the horse bad been

been driven unmercifully, but a as fed
only what il could graze at differed stops

driven through Des Moines and Colfax
after the postals sent out by tbe t tarshal
reached those cities and it was xtrangc
that she was not apprehended. She had
been around Madrid over a week when

An exchange is again agitating the
scheme to name all country roat s, as
streets are now named, and to number
tbe houses along these roads. Th-t plan
ia a good one and should be adopted by
county boards. JAt present country roads
have no designation except as lncidt o tal
ly fall to them, and it is often difficult
for strangers to find their way w tbout
frequent inquiries. Name your roars and
let tba name appear on each corner. Il
will then be as easy to find any house in
the country aa it now is in tbe city where
tbe streets and number are given.

BOIES ON PROHIBITION.
Iewa-e !jtt SVaverwar the Htate'e
Newt Obwextawa UwWhy It Haa
Berai a rallwre.
Tbe fact that Hon. Horace Boles, of
Waterloo, Iowa, democratic candidate
for governor of the Hawkeye state was to
speak at tbe Turner Grand opera bouse
last night, attracted a large audience
made up in part from thia side of tbe
river. Hon. Nathaniel French, for years
a prominent republican and elected to the
circuit judgeship by that party, and who
has been driven from the ranks of the g.
o. p. by its attitude on tbe tariff and liquor
question, presided and Introduced the
speaker of tbe evening. Mr. Boies re
minds one very much of ex-Governor
Dick Oglesby. of Illinois. He presents
much the same appearance, but is more
quiet and convincing in bis address. Last
night he devoted himself chiefly to tbe
prohibition issue. Under tbe protection
of tbe republican party, breweries to the
value of t4,000,000 bad been built up.
Tbey were as legal as any business until
the republican party at a stroke de
stroyed them without compensation. It
wiped out of existence property that had
been built up in good faith. As well
might a fire-brand have been applied to
buildings so used.
In theory, Mr. Boies said, tbe pro
hibitorj law bad been in force five years;
but at tbe last convention of tbe repub
lican party it was still calling for en
forcement. It was an unjust and tyrran
ous law and for that reason men had not
and would not bow to it except by brute
force. The only means left to enforce
tbe law would be to establish a state
constabulary, and this the speaker pre
dicted would lie done within a year it a
republican governor is elected. The
power of electing local officers, to this
extent would be taken away and self
Mr. Boies showed how tbe prohibitory
law bad checked immigration to tbe
state, and increased emigration from il.
He told how this change bad depreciated
the value of property; how it had made
the morals of the community worse.
Where the open saloon had been driven
out the secret drinking place had come
in greater numbers. Men had become
spies for money and falsifiers of neces
sity. The quality of liquor had been
made worse than ever and the quantity
in no way reduced. In the place of tbe
hole-in tbe-wall be would have the open
saloon regulated by all proper restric
tions; he would have an inspector and
every safeguard possible. The law, where
it bad been enforced, had driven manu-'
factarers out of the state while the busi
ness they formerly did is now done by
houses in surrounding states. Iowa

Diliere of Klectricily.
It would not surprise me to see some fearful
catastrophe happen in the near future by
reason of the general, 1 might say pernicious,
employment of electricity as an agent of civ
ilization. I think we have roused up a force
that we may be unable to control. Take the
electric overhead railroads. They are driven
by a power impossible to compute, and yel
that force sometimes subsides for hours to
gether, and the ablest electricians are neither
able to awaken it again or tell why it ceases
to operate; and yet it will start again as sud
denly as it stopied, apparently independent
of human control. W ituin a few days I
hare seen an electric liht wire set on fire by
becoming wet, and burn as brightly as a car
bon, and some such accident happens during
every rain. The laws governing this mighty
force are but little understood, and there i
reason to fear that it may yet become dan
gerously defiant of control. Interview in St.
Louis U lobe-Democrat.

The baas viol is the most expensive of all
musical instruments to its owner. I ts first
cost ts not the greatest expensa It is so large
and awkward to carry around that it is con
tinuallv petting injured by accidents which
would not happen to smaller instruments.
Somebody may kick a bole in it by dancing
against it in a room, or it may be knocked
against something while carry uig it around.
It is most frequently injured on street cart
while the musician is carrying it to tbe placa
where he has to play. After a man has had
an Instrument for a long time he comes to
look upon it aa actually worth all the money
that it haa cost him, and in this way a bast
viol sometimes is valued at $1,000 or so by in
owner. In fact, I really knew a musician
who sued a railroad company for t5,0U0 for a
viol smashed in an accident, and he actually
got $y,H00. Interview in St. Louis Globe

A doctor prescribing for a baby was sadly
vexed by the ofneiousneas of tha child's femi
nine) relatives, who tried aU aorta of borne
ramediea for it, saying in apology:
vv thought if they did no good they
would do no harm, doctor."
At the end of his patience the doctor one
morning called for a bowl, a spoon and som
fresh butter, and began stirring the latter
round and round with an air of grave impor
tance. Tbe ladles gathered about him Inquis
itively, but be gave them no attention until,
at hut, curiosity becoming rampant, they
cried in chorus:
"Oh, doctor, do tell us what you are going
to do with tbe butter f"
Here was his chance. Facing them sol
emnly, he said: "I am going to grease the
baby a elbnw with It. It may not do any
good, but it won't do any barm." London

Tbe czar of all tbe Ruasias still Uvea, but
it ia only by the merest good luck. The latest
attempt to make him shuffle off consisted of
tbe explosion of a chest of dynamite at the
railway station of Peterhof, a small place
near bt. Petersburg. Tha stuff went off a
little too soon and killed a signalman. In
tbe nieatitiiue the czar was far enough away
for safety, as he nearly always contrives tc
be when an v thing unpleasant is taking place.
It is evidently unnecessary for him to remain
shut up within the stone walls of Oatacbina
now. He can walk and ride about in the
open world without having the least fear of
injury, unless, indeed, some of these infernal
machines happen to go off at an unlucky mo
ment for him some day. But the chances of
such a catastrophe are very small, apparent

Am Able A.areaa.
On an anniversary occasion of tbe
lodges of the Odd Fellow society at Peo
ria recently, Rev. P. A. Cool, former
presiding elder of the Rock Island M. .
district and now pastor of tbe First church
at Peoria, delivered an address on the ad
vantages of societies organized for the
mutual benefit of its members and espec
ially of the Odd Fellows. His remarks
will be read with interest by many in this
A. bond is a binding force. We first
think of it as a thing made of material
substance. He spoke of tbe prisoner,
ships and buildings, but there are bonds
which are not visible, and my theme is
invisible ties. The force of gravity will
probably illustrate this better than any
thing else. The force holds everything
to tbe earth. Were it not for this, all
things would leave and fly off on a tan
gent. Weight is merely ibis force of
gravity. An architect, when be draughts
a building, must know that an invisible
force will bold every brick or stone to tbe
ground, and be must overcome this resis
tance. A machinist must not forget this,
whether he builds an engine, a bridge or
a tunnel. There are ties which not only
bind from this earth to yonder sun, but
to other planets, forming a perfect net
work. While they are invisible, we see
tbey bave to do with tbe rising and set
ting of the sun and the movements of the
There is another class of invisible tics,
but it is not in opposition to this force of
gravity. This is chemical infinity, and
when two or three atoms come together it
forms an entirely new substance. Then
there is cohesion and adhesion.
This being true in nature, do we find
it anywhere else? Yes; men are banded
together by invisible ties. Tbe first of
these are social bands and begin at home.
Then they take hold of kindred and
friends. Then they reach out and take
in our native land. These ties do not
take hold of tbe body alone, but there is
something more, and tbey hold us to
gether like brothers. It seems to me
that these ties, like those in nature, grip
witb tbe eternal band. These social ties
lake another form and bind men tc
getber in societies like we see bere today.
There is something in our hearts which
reaches out and finds a kindred heart.
They are strong lies. Then there are
ties of a personal nature which bind to
gether. These individual hearts standing
alone mean one thing, but when bound
together by two or three more mean an
entirely different thing. We find men
who are bound together by business ins
terests. There are trades unions and
brotherhoods, and there are personal ins
terests. Bonds when once put on, cannot
always be put off when men desire it.
Mr. Cool spoke of good and evil, and
when a man ia bound up in either, he
may be beld there during life. How fre
quently a man wants to get out of his
business but is unable lo do so, and must
either go up or down with it. This j
shows that a man should be careful what j
bonds be selects.
I may cast my lot with the Odd Fel
lows. 1 may be bound up witb them, and
if I do wicked you bave a right lo say
bow I shall leave the order. 1 say that
if a man joins tbe Odd Fellows he will
find something ennobling there. What
is there in tbe motto Friendship, Love
and Truth. Love is tbe invisible tie
which binds, and I say that it takes bold
of his higher nature, bis better nature.
When a man determines to be a christian
or not, it settles other questions. When
I decide to become an Odd Fellow I de
cide to have Odd Fellows for brothers.
If a man decides to become a christian
he decides to -Put on charity, which is
the bond of ierfectness." It is the only
bond which will nt the soul. An urgent
appeal to put our love in truth followed.
If I put a stone in tbe face of the sun, or
ibe bosom of tbe moon, or Ibe arms of
tbe Pla;iades, I would find this same force
of gravity in operation. So il is when
we leave this eartb. V ben I read those
names to you I could see the invisible
ties. Death does not break them . Don't
you feel this chord, brothers? If Ibese
ties do not last forever, tell me what we
mean when we speak of tbe "Sweet bve
and bye? Tbe invisible ties which fix
man in his proper place on earth bold
forever and forever. Brothers and sis
ters. Odd Fellows, let us get this chord
in tbe proper place in our hearts. There
is only one thing capable of universal
pplicalion, and that is love, the bond of
perfectness. I stood by some of those
who bave passed away and I wished I
could have been by all. As tbeir eyes
closed and their lights went out, I could
see tbe invisible tcs.

which the Moline supervisor is having
laid on the north side of court house

The council would be perfectly justified
in ordering it stopped on the ground thai
it ia dangerous, and one of those cases
where the city's rights overstep the coun
ty's. Lieutenants James F. Dean and Frank
P. Avery, of Ft. Spelling, Minn., ars
rived bere yesterday afternoon, having
rowed all the distance In canoes. Tbey
were on a pleasure trip. Last evening
Lieut. Dean received a dispatch which
conveyed to him the startling newt that
hut home on the reservation bad been
robbed Wednesday evening. Dispatches
were sent out by his wife at different
hours during the day, but none of tbem
reached him until he arrived here, owing
to tbe fact that be had left tbe towns
along the river before tbe dispatches
reached them. He left on tbe train for
home last evening.
Tbe people of Geneseo bave learned
something of the persistency of Rev. G.
W. Gue, of this city, when it comes to
soliciting church fundi. Be was there
last 8unday on the occasion of the dedi
cation of the remodeled M. E. church.
and helped the good people of the church
out of their financial perplexitiea wonder
fully. The A'etu says: "Re?. G. W. Que,
after preaching a good sermon to the im
mense congregation, started to raise that
200. Moat of it was pledged at the
morning service, and tha balance ia the
evening. Bro. Gue is a most effectual
petitioner for funds. His amusing re
marks kept tbe people in a good humor.''
The Union in commenting on the fact
that tbe Ladies Aid society of the Central
Presbyterian church cleared $833 by tbe
recent merchants' carnival, which is
$300 more than the amount necessary for
tbe paving, makes a contemptible sneer
at the enterprise which it is a gratifica
tion to know has been so successful, by
insinuating that it proposes to get up a
merchants' carnival to pay for the pave'
ment to be laid in front of its office on
Eighteenth street. There is about as
much difference between the mission of
the enterprise the ladies represent and
the mission the Union represents, as
there is between spotless white and im
penetrable black. Tbe Union ought to
be the last to thus reflect upon the most
worthy efforts of the ladies of tbe Central
Presbyterian church .

disease, or advanced kidney disease:
"The minor effects are headache, loss of
vision, impaired hearing, involuntary
muscular twitching, cramps, drowsiness,
vomiting and diarrhoea." These are but
some of the common symptoms of this
malady, which accounts for Warner's
Safe Cure curing so many diseases (so
called) which are not diseases, but are
symptoms of advanced kidney disorders.
