Special Correspondence to the A Rous:
Lincoln, Ens;, Au. 21. What can
one say about Paris that has not already
been said over and oyer again. The life
of the city, even at this "ouS of the sea
son" time is something wonderful crowds
of people and streets full of vehicles
everywhere. Gaiety prevails everywhere
the cafes full day and night, sidewalks
filled with tables and chairs and people
sipping their coffee and beer, wines and
liquors all the time, orchestra playing and
bands of musicians parading the streets,
shops brilliantly lighted and tilled with
wares and goods of every description.
The museums and galleries of art are open
free to everybody at certain hours. The
churches are open for worship and in
spection and full of tourists with guide
book and opera glass in hand. The wor
ship goes on iust the same, and the
crowds of tourists eeui to make no dif
ference to the worshippers, either priests
or people. The people seem very happy
and few beggars are seen. The French
are a thrifty people and the common peo
ple are said to have more maoey laid by
than any other people in Europe. Tbe
pennies are carefully looked after and so
tbe dollars are accumulated. Carriage
hire is low, only thirty cents per ride and
sixty cents per hour. One party of four
persons engaged a handsome carriage for
sixty cents per hour for the party. The
charming pulsce of Versailles wi'.h its
lovely gardens and immense parks. Its
hundreds of rooms filled with paintings
and statuary are open free to all and one
wonders about from room to room at
his own sweet will. Railway excursion
fares are very low and the people take
advantage of the low rates daily. Notre
Dame, St S '.lattice. Saint Chappelle. the
Madelaine, St. Koche and other wonder
ful churches are visited by thousands
yearly, and the pictures and etttutry are
things never to be forgotten. One leaves
Paris with regret and longs to return.
' All good people go to Paris when they
die," is an ancient proverb, and no doubt
many good Americans will contemplate
such a fate with satisfaction. On our
way to Dieppe, we spend part of the day
at the old Norman city of Kouen with its
ancient Cathedral and the more an
cient church of St. Owen with lis
wonderful chapels and altars, its ancient
stained glass windows; a city of quaint
market places and houses, narrow streets
and little shops, and numerous pot
houses and wine shops. Jean d' Arc
figures in its history, and a fine statue of
the maid stands on tbe spot where she
met her death by fire. Dieppe is a
handsome city on the sea quite a fash'
ionable watering place, bathing houses
of canvas line the beach, furnished with
dressing table and lounge, with a little
window for lis;ht and observation. Here
one sees the bather rec ining in his batb
dressing gown after tbe dip iu the sea.
About 11 a. m. is tbe swell time for
bathing; there are hundreds of people
men. women and children in all kinds
of dress and undress sporting in tbe
waves. Tbe shingle of the bath is cov
ered acres of It with the washing of
the town drying in the sun. and it would
seem as though the whole city bad
brought tbe contents of the laundry
down to the beach for drying. Stones
are placed on the clothing to keep them
from being blown away, and patient wo
men knitting and sewing, ami still more
patient donkeys in little carts are wailing
for tbe genial sun to do his work.
Five hours iu a snug little steamer
takes one across the channel to New
Haven. The day proved to be stormy
with a rough sea, ami many passengers
paid their unwilling tribute to Neptune.
A most forlorn looking set of passengers
landed at New Haven. Not being a con
tributor, your correspondent could look
on in pity and amazemeut, not repressing
a smile now and then at the "objects."
A short ride on the railway brings one to
Brighton, the beautiful city by the sea,
where Londoners go in crowds to inhale
tbe salt air, take a dip and promenade on
the great iron pier which runs out a long
disUnce into the water; is inclosed on
the sea side with glass to protect the vis
itor, and has a good band of musicians
to delight the ioplc while they walk up
and down, and round and round in their
effort to do the proper thing at Brigh
ton. Bath houses on great wheels are
let down into the water and pulled up
again by ropes attached to a windlass, so
that the bather can jump in
to deep water from bis own lit
tle house .without prying inspec
tion ot the curious. Miles of nets
lie on the shingles drying, and dozens of
sail boats are at one's disposal for a small
sum for a sail. Tbe nets are often a mile
or more in length and some of them thir
ty fathoms in depth. The "Metropole,"
lately opened, is said to be the finest ho
tel in Europe and is the boast of all Eog
land, Brighton has 140,000 people, is
still growing and can accommodate all
England as they come and go for a sea
side visit sixty miles from London with
a great many fast trains daily, and the
round trip fare, third class, is only seventy-five
London is a big city even to a Yankee.
Over 4.000. 000 of people sleep in London
every night; 28,000 cabs carry people
about the city, fare thirty-seven cents
for a trip of one mile, fifty cents
for two miles. One might as well
try to describe the world as de
scribe London, with its continuous
lines of 'busses, its vast underground rail
road system and the hansoms at six mites
an hour even in tbe busiest portions of
tbe city. The roar and rush is over
whelming to a foreigner, but there are
few accidents, and the city is well policed
ami orderly and clean. A great many
paiks, small and great, afford breathing
space to tbe millions, well clad and
ragged, cleaji and dirty, and "this is a
free country" seems to be-the general im
pression of every Englishman. Certainly
prompt justice can be obtained by any
body, great and small, which is more than
can be said of most of our American cit
ies. Even the police are careful not to
trespass on the rights of the meanest per
son, and the club is sparingly used even
In a mob, while a policeman is promptly
challenged and not spared if he uses his
club without amply sufficient cause.
There Is an awfal amount of poverty and
wretchedness among the poorer people,
and drink drink is the curse of men and
women though one sees little drunken
ness on tbe streets; but the drink shops
are everywhere, opposite to and alongside
the churches, and women are seen in the
bar rooms everywhere, drinking and
laughing, doors all open no conceal
ment. But train time warns me to close.

HOW THEY WORK IT.
Tke Hetaaa's af a i'aleasa Paper to
Mkoulder Worthless Advertlstac oa
the Bnolaeoo Hra of Maaaller Cities,
The representatives of the Chicago
paper who recently worked the business
men of Rock Island in a manner fully ex
posed by the Argus at the time, are now
in Dubuque and tbe Telegraph thus con
demns their scheme:
The methods of Sol. Isaacs and Pincus
Hirscbfleld. tbe men here seeking material
for a write up of the town in the Chicago
Timet, said write up to consist of tbe ad
vertisements of their patrons, are some
what peculiar as explained by an insur
ance agent. One of them called on the
gentleman, stated that the Timet intended
to write up the town and the principal
business men in it and that the gentleman
bad been mentioned as a leading insurance
agent. He would receive complimentary
mention in tbe Timet without charge.'
Mr. Isaacs would obtain the write up from
Mr. Ilirjchtield and submit It when he
called again. On bis second visit Isaacs
submitted a paragraph referring to the
gentleman in most fulsome terms and rep
resenting him as one of tbe oldest insur
ance agents in the city. Tbe gentleman
suggested that this was not tbe fact and
that tbe paragraph was erroneous in other
particulars. This the canvasser promised
to rectify. He then procured a book show
ing what other business men in Dubuque
had subscribed for the "boom" edition.
The insurance agent replied that, while he
had no objections to the Timet' mention
ing him, be had nothing to offer. Then
Mr. Isaacs grew insulting, criticised the
insurance man's lack of enterprise, and
threatened to writa up every other agent
in town and leave him out. The gentle
man answered that this would suit him
quite as well and, he thought, would be
of equal advantage to his business.
The insurance agent was right. While
an advertisement in the Chicago Timet,
under proper conditions, would probably
be of some benefit to a manufacturer who
sends his goods everywhere, H would be
of no earthly use to anyone rii.ing a lo
cal business. His home newspaper is the
only one that can benefit the roan who
does business with his own community
alone. And as for a "write up of the
town" consisting principally of the ad
vertisements hi its business men, it can
scarcely he said to benefit even tbe man
ufacturer for the newspaper reader
Mr. Gest 1b now a-workln.
For the bill we want to see
Go thmuch conrres and give justice.
To the Island employe.
R. I. Union.
In these lines there is a bidden beauty
and more than ordinary study is required
to get at the soulful idea involved. And
bow truthfully the fact is brought out in
tne touching line, "Mr. Uest is now a-
workin." Yes, poor fellow, he is up to
bis eyes in labor to get a bill through to
help tbe "island employe," but when tbe
bill was being riddled in Tongress a few
days ago his "workin" seems to have kept
him from saying anything about it. And
when the bill finally passed in a mutilated
and emasculated form so that the afore
said employe would not be able to get a
dollar under its provisions, Mr. Gest must
have begun to look up into the clouds for
that "justice" so captivatingly set forth
in the lines quoted.
The same inspired writer continues:
Three young snappers are a nippin,
VI his heels in perfect plee,
Should he full, they would be happy
At his heels in perfect plee.
And go In an testacy
This has the flavor of Horace. It can
not be scanned so readily perhaps, on ac
count of the genius of tbe author who
seems to be away beyond all rules of
metrical composition, hut observe tbe
stately rhythm and the marshalling of
facts and the striking conclusion. How
ingeniously all these are .woven to
gether. And like Captain Bunsby's
opinions, tbe beauty lies in its
application. Still there is a suggestion of
sadness through it all, found in the inti.
mation "should he fail." neaven forbid
that such a CiUmity should ever be
brought upon this people. But as the
late lamented Mrs. Macbeth told her bus
band, "screw your courage to the stick
ing poitit'and you shall not fail." That's
it. Get your -courage up the sticking
point. Mr. Gest. and there you are. But
as the poet Milton would say In his sub
lime moments, do not go off half-cocked
and urge you have done a thing when you
haven't. And do not make the mistake
of trying to induce the people to believe
you are "a-workin" when the fact is your
puny labor has left disaster in its trail
By not observing these principles there is
a strong probability that you will fail and

The officers of the Zuma church met
with their minister, tbe Rev. Mr. Cool
idge, last evening, to devise some means
of raising the balance of tbe minister's
salary, there being $150 due him. The
reverend gentleman, :iince be came upon
the work, has felt callt d upon to scold and
chastise some of the members for their
many improprieties, and consequently
has given offense to tome who say they
will not pay him. tie told those present
at the meeting that ho must have the bal

number of calves went to Moline to con

ceive four cents per pound live freight.
On Tuesday last the first two calves were
taken, which were two beauties, but the
butcher, although he bad contracted for
them, declined to take them, and they hid
to be sold from $3 to $3 each less than
they were worth, rather than bring them
home. - I am informed that this is a
common practice with the Moline butch
