C, as. & q After a Tour or Obter
va i in.
Division Agent. II D. Mck of the C. ,
B. & Q., returned thi9 morning from a
run down the Rock Island & St. Louis
division. At this season of the year Mr.
Mack is viewing the condition of the
growing crops with all the interest and
anxiety of a life time agriculturalist.
Not that he has banked himself on a field
of grain, but he is interested in the
growth i ist as much nevertheless. "What
Shall the Harvest be" is the tune that he
involuntarily hums continually at this
season, and it is with an eye to business,
"The crops are looking magnificent,'
said Mr. Mack enthusiastically in reply to
a "how's business" from an Argus emis
sary this morning. "Never saw them
look better at this time of the year.
Wheat is in beautiful condition. I be
lieve there will be a ep'cndid yield a
big crop," continued the division freight
agent, as he glanced significantly out of
the window and up the track. "I ob
served that wheat is everywhtre flourish
ing in Illinois, and from what I can learn
from the advices we have from Nebraska
the same is true as to the west.
I believe we are to have good
crops this year," Mr. Mack reiterated, and
the thought in his mind, of course, was
that there would be good shipments, for
which the Q with its customary alacri
ty, would come in for its share.
Two young ladies who reside on Eighth
avenue were returning home on Monday
evening by way of Twelfth street, and on
the way noticed a strange man following
them. They paid no attention to him
until they reached Fifth avenue, when
the scoundrel ran up behind them and
attempted to grao one of the young la
dieF. Both started to run, their pursuer
following until they reached Sixth ave
nue, when he disppeared. They went
immediately to the home of one of the
young ladie3, whose father started to
ook for a policeman. After searching
some lime he finally discovered the officer
who patrols that beat coming out of a sa
loon at the corner of Seventh avenue and
Twelfth street, to whom he related the
experience of the young ladies, and ad
dressed hims If in unmistakable
terms to the ofbeer for his seem
ing neglect ot duty. A search was then
made for "Jack the liuager, but no
trace of bim could be found
A row occurred in the "White Ele
pbant" saloon on Second tvnue about
10 o'clock last night, and a number of

It was caused by a colored citizen a:d
Bomj white man getting into trouble in
which some ottiers loon a nana, and a
general clashing of color was the result.
It was bushed up as soon as possible, and
when the police arrived none of the of

The Funeral of the Future.
'The time is cominc" said an under
taker of this city, "when people will cease
to go to funerals in troops, and when the
friends of the deceased will take fareweil
ot his remains at his home, instead of fol
lowing Uim to the grave as they do now.
This will be a decided chanue for the better.
Funerals as now conducted are foolish and
meaningless performances. Thev brins
discomfort to all who attend them, and in
many cases they do positive injury. Think
of the thousands of people who catch their
death of cold from standing shivering
arounu an open grave, and from sitting for
hours in carriages traveling at a snail's
pace for miles into the countrv. Of course
the time is not far distant when burials
will be largely superseded bv cremation.
On the whole, I am disposed to regard
cremation as k blessing. Peonle are on-
posed to it now because they think that it
is unnatural and horrible. It is simply an
assistance to nature's work; it does neatly
and quickly what nature accomplishes
after a longtime and in a very unpleasant !
iasuion. 1 wonder if people ever realize
that when a human being dies the bod v
which he . leaves behind him is not him
self. There is no more relation between
a man when he is living and when he
is dead than there is between any liv
ing tning ana a piece oi clay, liut we
have not reached that stage of civilization
when the popular mind can grasp this fact.
W hen we do. there will be very different
runeral ceremonies from those now in
vogue, and other methods of disposing
or the dead will change materially. "

A Modest Looking; Girl's experiment.
She had one of those sweet angelic faces.
v.uu great, prayenui gray eyes, and no
one would think that there was anything
of the joker alnjut her. She sat in a front
pew in one of the fashionable up town
churches. Her pretty head was bowed
over her prayer book. All was as quiet as
a tomb iu church, and the silence seemed
to impress her. Suddenly she looked up,
and her great gray eyes quickly survevetl
the crowd of silent worshipers. Then just
the faintest suggestion of a laugh crept
into the gray eyes, and she coughed two or
three cute little coughs.
Then the head went down over the pray
er book again and the smile on her face
broadened as her neighbor coughed, and
lier neighbor's neighbor coughed, and
the cough was taken up here and there
and everywhere until the once silent tab
ernacle had the sounds peculiar to the
consumptive ward in a big hospital.
As the sweet young lady with the big
eyes came out of church &he was heard to
say to her escort:
"Now, you see that coughing in church
is largely a matter of habit. One person
coughs and the re.-t of t lie congregation
follows suit. I know it was very wicked
of me, but when I looked up and noticed
how silent everybody was, I had to try the
experiment of seeing how many people
would cough if I did. It was such fun."
