Tb Bat of a New York friend of mine la In
a building in which ara many other flats.
Botcet lines I spend tbe night with him and ha
puts me in a room whose only window opens
on bo air abaft. I hat never been accus
tomed to aitrly rising, and whenever I lodge
at my friend's flat this circumstance, together
with the excellent acoustic properties of tbe
air ib ait, enables me to become very well ac
quainted. with my friend a neighbors, who are
rather early blrda and much addicted to dis
cussing' drnnestio matters over their coffee.
There is no choice for me but to leave tbe win
dow open and enjoy these discussions, or to
leave the window shot and suffocate; there
fore, although I know all about the conjugal
bickerings of "Thomas" and "Angelina," who
occupy the flat below, and those of "Charles"
and "Maul," who occupy the Oat above, my
conscience Is at rest.

It did not take me long to discover that
Thomas and AiitliuabaU been jogging alou
in matrimouial barnm for some years, and
that Charles and Maude bad not yet had time
to wear the varnish off the traces. My next
discovery was that these breakfast table
wrangles, one above me and tbe other below
me, both going on at tbe same time, had very
u liferent endings. tt bereas Thomas and An'
(rolina always began sweetly and softly, using
tbe diplomacy that experience alone teaches.
and gradually warmed up to harsh word
and an angry parting, Charles and Maude
blazed up luridly at tbe start, kept the thing
going until Maude was In tears, aud then
niade it all up most affectionately and to
a great length. The last time I slept at my
friend flat the intelligible portion of wont
came to me throngh the air shaft was about
"Did you call at mother's yesterday as I
asked you to"
"I am very sorry, my dear, but I was so

There was a crash of breaking china down
the shaft and tbe scene cbangrri agnin.

A ST. LOUIS GIRL'S ESCAPADE.
Files to the Stage to Avoid a Wealthy
Wooer, and Then
They have a first class sensation in St.
Louis. A pretty young girl so the story
goes Bortlia Westbrook by name, is wooed
by a wealthy old gentleman of 70. Bertha
objects naturally to the match. Even if
the wooer is wealthy she makes up her mind
to become imlopf ndeut, ami with that view
goes on the stage.
Last summer sbo mula her debut at St.
Louis, apiearing in the title rule of "Lady
Audli ys .Secret" and as Lady Gay Spanker,
in "London Assurance" quite promiuent
characters for a beginner. Then for a few
weeks' she took a company on the road, but
nmdo a failure of it. Sinco then she has been
lookiti,; for au engagement, which sue at last
found with Agii-s Herudon's company. With
this troupe she met Mr. Hul Iti-id, and after
a week's acquaintance lir parents received

Alsxtt tho time of the receipt of this and
much more, a telegram enmo announcing
that she hud uiurried the nmii who hnd
thrown her into such a distressing state of
mind, and not left it to the "dear folks at
home," after all. Her father owns that he

Love, romantii' love, too nrfei-lv i. linl for tlii

cruei laie nciing iniouii tiio mediuius or un

were the causes of her mental undoing.
Nothing short of temporary lunacy could
have impelled this fair and talented young
Hungarian artist to put a bullet through her
brain on the joyous, bright New Year.
The last that tbe suicide saw of the man
for whom sho sped the fatal bullet was on

BrilL The deputation announced that Brill's
family also opposed the match, and that he
must wed an heiress and not a poor, strug

pable artHt and partially supported herself
by her labors.
The suicide was doubtless long planned.
Miss Oberbnuer was an impulsive, rash young
woman, and esrlr in life hnd nm.ln

she wrote letters tn rarmiw friumlu nl.lin.l

seemed to lie as deep as was her own.

About half past 7 o'clock the notorious
Biddy McQee left her place of bode on

Iowa, and started out on the warnath.
She went to the saloon on the south
west corner of Iowa and Third svreet and
met tbe saloon-keeper at tbe doer. She
inquired if O'Meara. the reporte-, was in

The indignant woman replied that she
desired to see him on business. O'Meara
then stepped out on the sidewalk . A war

a moment when the angry womi:n caught
hold of O'Meara by the collar with one
band and with tbe other she strtck him a
savage blow in the forehead tod then
went at bim with her fists. O'Meara was
badly cut about tbe forehead atd bruised
about the face. Tbe patrol wagon was
soon on hand and both O Hear i and the
woman McQee were taken to the police

It is exceedingly gratifying to note
that a change Is coming over some Mo
line people at least as regards tieir atti
tude toward the Hennepin cant I. They
are beginning to realize tbe fac . that lit
tle is to be gained by narrow-minded,
dog-in tbe-manger tactics and the deter
mination to support the canal ai a meas
ure of immense public benefits hereafter
in gaining ground there as It is every
where in tbe country. Recently tbe Dsv
enport Trihun said:
Hon. Jerry Murphy made a calculation
that the cost of building the Hennepin
canal would tie saved in a year I y the re
duction in tbe cost of freight for far
mers' produce to the seaboard. 1 county
subscriber to the Tribune says, ttiat if. by
the construction of this canal, Iowa could
save two cents a bushel on tho crop of
1S89 in corn, oats, potatoes and wheat, it
woufll give the farmers of tbe state tbe
magnificent sum of $9,741,460 in addition
to what they will now receive, thus sav
ing more than the cost af tbe canal in
this season's crop. And this is speaking
for Iowa alone. It Is equally important
to be considered for a large region of 111
nois, yet here and there, on botli sides of
tbe river, is one community anil another
kicking up its heels because tie Missus
ippi river terminus of sucb a g-and pro
ject may not be precisely where it mieht
best subserve tbe interests of iu especial
locality. This can only be deter nined by
the government surveys, and wherever
they fix the terminus, there it w II be.and
no local influence may have a voice in the
matter, nor should have.
To thia a Moline paper rep'iea with
The enterprise Is something beyond,
and fsr reaching over, any eini le town's
local interests. It is a national onterprise
under tbe charge of the govern vent offi
cers in all the preliminary surveys, etc.,
and can only he built by poveriment ap
ptoprialions of money. Every commun
ity should understand this, and first of all
that no influence they could bring to bear
will change any decision tbe government
officers in charge of the severs 1 surveys
may make as to the route of tie canal
and its river terminua. What w ) all want
to unite in with ever energy in our
power, is to have the canal built, which
will unite the lakes with the Mississippi
river, and thus make a competition to
railroads in sending the Immense products
of the Upper Mississippi valley to the
seaboard. Tbe man or community that
can't comprehend tbe value to all thia

It is reported that a bill is to be intro
duced in the United 8tates senate to ena
ble the Mississippi Logging company to
construct a dam aeross tbe Chippewa
river at or near the head of Beef
slough for the purpose of throwing
a current into that now famous bayou to
enable the interested parties to float into
the slough withont trouble the immense
quantities of saw logs which are now run
down the Chippewa from that section
every year to supply Mississippi river
mills. It is supposed that thia bill is to
be introduced for the reason that it hat
been found that there are too many ob
stacles to the use of West Newton slough,
on the Minnesota side of the Mississippi.
Frederick Weyerhauser. of this city,
president of the corporation referred to,
has more than once said that be is fixed
in his determination to supply the numer
ous mills along the Mississippi owned by
his corporations with Wisconsin logs, and
he has thus far done so in spite of ob
stacles which would have daunted almost
anybody else. But possession of the
Chippewa is, seriously, now a necessity
to Mr. Weyerhauser. If he cannot uce
West Newton, and if he is not allowed to
make Beef slough what he wants to make
it, a supply ef four or five hundred mil
lions of logs for his Mississippi mills is
cut off absolutely.
It would make a deficit which he could
fill from no other source. It Is reported
however, that the measure will be op
posed by the Knapp, Stout & Co. corn
pan f, which is interested in keeping a
clean channel and good navigation in the
Chippewa. The influence of that cor
poration is great, and it will undoubtedly
exercise it to defeat the measure, unless
some compromise has been effected by
Mr. Weyerhauser by which the bill a ill
not lie fought.
