A New Scheme for Benefiting River
..- : r'
a- rraBurt :... mr a
plater at a Mtaad.r I Tknaikeal
the tseaaoa ef Wawicat .
A project has been and consideration
by a St Louis rlfer eng near for some
time, and is practically oaderway which
will revolutionize traffic oa the Hississipi
pi river. For tbe past f iw years traffic
on the upper Mississippi lias been greatly
hindered and diminished 1y the low stage
of water prevailing during most of the
season, so that for weeki, at a time the
larger steamers have madt their way along
the upper river wilb tbe greatest difficulty.
The scheme now to be presented is noth
iosr less than the building of a ship canal
to connect Lake Superior and tbe Missis
sippi river, by allien a through water
route via Uinnetipolisanc St. Paul to tbe
Atlantic seaboard will be obtained, and at
the same time by means of locks in the
canal, the discbarge fron. Lake Superior
can be made to result te the at r
water in tbe Mississippi. A corps of en
gineers have spent the entire summer in
surveying and inspecting the banks of the
river from St. Paul V 8t. Louis to
ascertain just what djpth of water
can be carried with st fety. They are
now preparing their report. While
the building of the proposed ship
canal is an enterDrite ot immense
magnitude, yet the difficulties in tbe way
are greatly lessened by U e fact that there
are rivers that can be uti ied for a laree
part of the distance. Tbe route of the
proposed canal is not yet definitely set
tled. One plan proposet. to use the 8t.
Croix river, which runs eastward from
the Mississippi toward Lake Superior,
near Prescott, Wisconsin. Another
large interest to which the proposed ship
canal, with the proposed raising of the
water in the river, is of "ast importance,
is the lumber and loggia j trade of the
Mississippi. The low st tge of water of
late years has often greatly delayed and
made dangerous tbe passage of lumber
Mai. MackoEzie says that in 1878 the
river improvement was 1 egun, and now
a great many of the old bad places have
been wiped out. Indeol. were it not for
tbe improvement, raftin would be very
unprofitable business, e nd the packets
would have a very hard time of it.
THE REVIVAL MEETINGS.
Evaacellat Bi Wa cnl laaea Hia ser
vice at the Ceatml Preabytertaa
Mr. Bliss preached aa eloquent and
powerful sermon last niht in tbe Cen
tral Presbyterian church to a very large
congregation. His text was Rev. 12:11:
And they overcame him bv the blnnd of tha
lamb, and by the word of t heir testimony : and
they loved not their live an o the death.
This, said the speaker, tells of con
quest victory. "They overcame him."
Who? The devil. Bit. there are per
sons in these days who tell us that there
is no devil, that he is a creation ot the
fancy a bug-a-boo of t be dark ages, got
ten up to scare men Into the kingdom of
God. But don't be dec eired. There is
a personal devIL Jesus, said there was
and spoke of the devil its a personal be
ing and as the opposer of himself and
everything that is good. The scriptures
speak of a devil; and if tnere is any truth
In scripture, if Jesus knew what be was
talking about, there is a personal
devil, whose business is to deceive,
accuse and destroy souls. Bnt
thank God, that while tie devil is cunning,
strong and powerful, s that no man can
withstand him, there is something that
can overcome him. ''the blood of the lamb."
Every soul may conqu rr and obtain the
victory through the blrod of Christ.
After making a stror g appeal to sinners
to take refuge in the b ood, and to christ
ians to testify for Chri it, a large number
arose for prayers and declared their de
sign to begin the chrisUan life.
The after meeting in the lecture room
was one of great interest and very solemn.
There was a readiness on the part of
christians to testify for Christ that has
not yet been seen. Fourteen persons
arose in the after mee ing and expressed
a determination to be( in new lives. The
meeting this evening i.t 7:30 is to begin
with a song service, and by the way the
singing at these mee: ings is most excel
lent and is one of the most effective fea
tures of the services, being in charge of
F. H. Clark the Bostt n singer.
Tbe revival services conducted by Evan
gelist T. A. Boyer at the Christian chapel
are attracting large congregations nightly
and Mr. 'Boyer who it a fluent and able
speaker is making a good impression.
Much good has alread been accomplished
through bis labors.
Tbe directors of th) head camp, M. W.

It is said there are tome twenty bids, and
that some of them a re about one-third of
the amount paid last year for the Echo.
Tomorrow night th executive council of
the order will visit ttock island, remain

A solemn silence prevailed in the court
room as the lury took their places and
the judge instructed the clerk to ask the
customary quesiiot s: -
"Gentlemen," sai 1 tbe clerk, "have yon

"Tiddledy winks" is now raging.
It is popular among the old as well as
the young. ,
We venture to say that not a house will
be complete the coming season without a
wink pot. .
It ia great in social opportunities and
is everybody's game.
It gives a chance for the old folks add
the youngsters to meet on equal terms.
Another advantage in this game Is that
any number can play with one' set, and
"progressive tiddledy wink parties" may
be expected te be often beard of this
winter. The church societies give them
with much success. "Tiddledy wink ten
nis" has already been introduced and no
one need Je surprised to receive cards to
a "5 o'clock tiddledy wick flip" before the
sea-on shall end.
Tbe game ot "tiddledy wink" consist
of a small paper box divided into, com
partments in which can be found a wood
tub or glass jar called a "wink pot," a
number of bone or celluloid chips a little
larger in circumference than a quarter of
a dollar, called "tiddlediea." and a larger
num6er ot smaller chips about tbe size of
a dime, called "winks." Each "hand."
consisting of one tiddledy and six winks,
is of a color, and, while there are gener
ally tour hands in a box, there may be
as many as colors can be had. Each of
the parties playing at a table, over which
there should be a aoft cover, takes one
tiddledy and six winks, and placing them
ten to twelve inches from the wink pot
located in the center, endeavors in turn
to flip the winks into tbe wink pot - Tbe
flipping process ia accomplished by
placing the tiddledy Dimly upon the
wink and then by drawing or sliding it
oS the edge of tbe wink is flipped and
bounces flea-like toward tbe wick pot, if
aimed in that direction. The one
v ho flips his six winks into the wink pot
Brat wins the game.
It is great fun to flip the winks with
tbe tiddledies and watch them jump ag
gravatingly in tbe wrong wsy or strike
the rim of the wink pot and roll farther
oS than ever. Some very nice points are
involved, which experience will teach how
to discriminate between. When one per
son's wink flips upon that of another and
remains there the lower wink cannot be
removed until relieved by the owner of
the upper wink, which is an annoying
disadvantage to the proprietor of the un
A player can soon become an expert in
handling a tiddledy and will get so in a
abort tin.e that he can pot his winks at
short range with but little variance.
