"Let me stale my creed
"I belieuc in newspaper advertising as
the natural, most effective, most Dromrt
and economical mode of reaching the
great public. .Especially ia cities, human
and modern curiosity leads to wide read
ing of daily and weekly newspapers. The
government has aided the publishers to
such an extent tbat their mails are cai
Jitd at one cent itr round and
that carries your advertisement
all the cheaper. Modern invention
Las worked harder to perfect tbe output
tiog of tbe daily paper than to accom
plish almost any other work of life. In
tbe home there is always a scramble
among tbe household for the paper. The
kitchen gets it first, the energetic child
next, but the remorseless father (indulgent
in other things) takes it away when he
arrives on the scene of action. As soon
as he is done the wife captures it. and in
countless cases a claim of priority of age
decides its reading among tbe children.

The Peoria Journal makes some obser
vations which might readily apply -o
Rock Island. It sajs:
A great deal of complaint has been
made recently with regard to merchants
and other people carrying loose papers
from their establishments and leavinz
them in the streets and alleys throughout
enr city where tbe wind can catch them
and whirl them through the air greatly to
me aisturoance oi the people as well as
to nervous horses. Several runaways
have resulted of late from this cause
and as there is an erdinance on the book
of our city laws sgnnst such disposition
being made of ruboish. it is thought that
a proper enforcement of the same would
result in great benefit and perhaps the
the saviug of life. Tbe great majority
of our people have no intention of doing
wrong, nor transgressing tbe city laws,
but is only tboughtlessnets, or perhaps
cartleseness of some of their employes.
tbat has caused them in the past to allow
papers to get from under their control

We're here at the four mile tree!

To peer in the brook, whose windows keep
Their shivering double seel
Ton hectic star throosth the night of pins
That broods on the Tnerto's comb!
Aha! And roar ears perk np to line!
Ton know who waits there with evce ashine
Whose neck she will hag next after mine!
I guess so! Then oat for home!
A shot! Pe-yan-ng! And It burnt my ear!
Good caoae for your shying so!
Apaches! Trapped! They are front and rear!
And Kate alone, with the hellions near

Whoop! Through them! Over them! Go!

Story of a LovtnE Cap.
A Bostonian, who has been in London a
good deal, relates that not long since he
had tbe honor of dining with one of the
oldest of tbe companies in that city, when
he was shown on the loving cap, which
was passed at the conclusion of the dinner,
the date 162. He had been told earlier in
theevenina; that tbe hall of the company
had been burned to the ground in the great
fire of London, and that everything which
the company had had been consumed, so
that he remarked that of course this cup
was a reproduction of an old one.
'Oh. no," was the answer, "this is the
'But how vras this preserved in the great
It was then explained that tlie company
was so heavily assessed at the time of tho
establishment of the commonwealth
when, as everybody knows, levies were
made on most of the city companies that
it had hard work to raise the necessary
funds. It managed to scrape along, how
ever, until the restoration, when fresh de
mands were made by the government of
Charles Hon the ground that the company
had contributed funds to the support of
The company had already mortgaged its
lands, and tow there was nothing left for
it but the pawning of its plate, which was
accordingly pledged to the Lombards, who
carried it to France. It was owing to this
state of things that the plate escaped the
great tare, and although it was a long time
after that event before the company was in
a position to redeem the silver, ultimately
tbe whole came back to tbe original own
ers ia Loudon. Boston Courier.
A Question Never Asked In Good Society.
It is a rule of good society that as soon as
you arrive you affect to have always been
there. Of other ascents men boast; of so
cial success, rarely. Your millionaire, for
example and miliionairisni is getting so
common as to be almost vulgar your mill
ionaire never tires of telling you how he
worked the multiplication table until cents
became dimes, and dimes well sown blos
somed presently into dollars, till hundreds
swelled to hundreds of thousands, and the
man who had been a blithe youth but
twenty years before became the possessor
of an uneasy tumor he calls a fortune.
Once this narrative is begun, no matter
that you beat your breast with reluctance
to hear out the tedious tale, while loud bas
soons perchance are calling you to wedding
feasts, pray hear the modern Whittington
The recital of this story is his main con
solation for the boredom of complicated
possession in which his lie is inextricably
involved his recoupment for the irksome
vigilance with which he must defend his
hoard against the incessant attacks of
cheats and beggars, subscription papers
and poor relations. Bus the man who has
won his way to that illusive sphere we call
society sends to swift oblivion all his proc-
sses. In society the man asks another.
How did you get here?' or congratulates
him on moving among better people than
he did ten years ago. Theoretically soci
ety is stationary. Even while breathless
from climbing, the newcomer affects to
have always beeu atop. Edward Eggles
ton in Century.
"It is the edict of the world," said the
man " 'laugh and the world laughs with
yon; weep and you weep alone.' Friends
are many when the purse is long, but when
care and affliction come ah, how is it that
I should know this sad truth, that in such
times as these friends are indeed few! The
loyalty of friendship is something I have
long consecrated in my inmost heart of
hearts. One should be free with all pos
sessions, but should be miserly of his
friends. Make friends as you tread life's
earlier path. Keep constantly fortifying
your stock of friends, or the latter will
soon pass from you. The friends of our
youth are no doubt the best of all; endur
ing through life without thought or need
of change. As Thackeray said, 'We are
so much alone in this world; you who have
anything to love hold that friend to your
heart and thank God." " Detroit Free
