THE PEARL' CRAZE
t is Looming up Bigger Than
Tbe pearl bunting craze, which occo
aioned so much excitement In northern
Illinois and southern Wisconsin a year or
more ago, has again revived and many
are the hunters that are looking for the
little gems. In Stephenson county, tbe
Free port Bulletin says, the finds have
been small this season, but those that
have been picked up are of unusual size
and beauty and command a good price.
In speaking of the crsza the Beloit
Citizen has the following to say:
Within tbe past week the old pearl
craze has again become prevalent among
the people along the streams adjacent to
iseioit. ice pearl nunters, as in years
past, tell very rosy stories cf the discov
ery of rare gems imbedded in tbe shells
of the innocent flams along Rock river
and tbe streams flowing into it. All this
is but a repetition of what we had two
years ago and even at dates much earlier
ridiculous stones have been told of pearls
that were found in tbis same locality.
la 1839 there was a general pearl fever
that pervaded the country for miies round
about. In various localities ttie custom
ary vocations were entirely dropped and
whole neighborhoods joined in the wild
search. Farmers even left their grain to
spoil in the fields to join the throng of
adventurers, and wagon load after wagon
load of clams were thrown out on tbe
banks, opened and carefully examined
only to find an occasional pearl in some
cases perhaps as Urge as a small potato
and of about an equal value. It would
not be necessary to go 20 miles from
Beloit to find a neighborhood where men,
women and children participated in tbe
hunt of '89. Among these same people
because one party had jokingly made an
offer of 10J for a worthless specimen be
longing to another, the report went out
that such an offer bad been made and re
fused. And so it went. Pearls were
found by the peck, but none were of suffi
cient excellence to have a market value
fixed upon them.
Subsequently to thellate freak that has
taken possession of some of these people
the Ciiizen mm interviewed tbe local
jewelers on tbe question. The rseult of
the inquiry found them as a unit in the
belief tbat no pearls of a market .value
have or will be found in these notorious
streams. Tbey say that specimens are
frequently brought to them to examine
and assign a value to, but tbey have yet
to see a gem of any specific value.
It is true that certain Milwaukee jew
elers did advertise some gems which they
claimed were found in these rej'ious, but
it is supposed that tbey did it more for
attracting tbe attention of tbe public to
their goods than for any other reason.
The truth is it takes a very rare pearl to
be worth any considerable amount. Fifty
dollars will purchase about as floe a
treasure as there is in the market and this
talk of fabulous prices being paid for
gems found in any of our rivers bas ab
solutely co foundation and the sooner
these pearl hunters find this out the less
time they wiil throw away following af
ter this too Drevaleat craze.
Durability vf Brlrk Pavement.
The city of Bloomington, is pre
eminently the birthplace and home of the
modern improved form Of brick pavement .
An exchange in referring to tbe matter
Tbe first pavement in Bloomington was
a strip about 10 feet wide, laid in tbe
spring of 1ST4, and extending across Cen
ter street at the southwest corner of tbe
cdurt house. Tbe next year in order to
make a better test, a block on tbe west
side of tbe court house was laid and was
completed about Oct. 1, 1875, nearly 16
years ago; and with tbe exception of the
relaying tbat was needed where the pave
ment was torn up for the construction of
sewers and the extension of gas mains by
the new company, has required no re
pairs sicce the pavement was laid.

LADIES IN POLITICS.
The France Oleveian ejlb Whteh
la a FaeitSB la Oae Cemnty Ia the
Eleventh Caaarrraalaaal iHstrtet
Ereetlas; a BnildioK.
It is an admitted fact that one of the
factors in Warren county politics is the
Frances Cleveland club -with its head
quarters in Monmouth. It is avowedly
a political society and its chief end is to
instruct its own members and to do mis
sionary work for the democratic party.
It is an organization tbat bas on its rolls
almost all the ladies of democratic belief
in that city and very many throughout
Warren county. It bas been very suc
cessful during its existence.
The latest idea of the club has been the
erection of a building on the Warren
county fair grounds to be used as head
quarters during the week of the annual
county holiday. Tbe grounds are vis
ited some time or other by a major
ity of all the people in Warren'
boundaries. To afford the ladies a
comfortable place to rest and also to
properly impress upon them and their
husbands some idea of the club's im
portance and prosperty. the building was
thought of. A committee was appoint
ed to secure the consent of the managers
of the fair and to investigate the plan
still further. Tbe fair board met last
Saturday. The desired permission to
build was given and now the raising of
funds is to begin.
The ladies have a novel plan for this?
Tney will furnish meals and lunch in
their building and will hive on sale also
many other articles. Instead of solicit
ing money directly these ladies will sell
to subscribers to the budding fund, tick
ets that will be redeemable to the full
amount at their booths. The tickets will
be made good, one fourth of the amount
each year for four years. Anything on
sale at the building will be
sold on these terms. Each member of
tbe club is constituted a part of the solic
The club's house will bs a noticeable
addition to the buildings now on the fair
grounds. It will be quite large, octigo
nal in shape, will be one story in bight
and will be of frame. It wiil be divided
into two Urge rooms. Oae will be a
kitchen and tbe other a dining and wait
ing room. Counters will be arranged
about the sides of tbe building. It will
be handsomely painted and conveniently
furnished. It is expected that tbe cost
wi;i be about $400. Work will be ccm-
menced in a short time.
Tbe Monmouth Review giyes a short
history of tbe Frances Cleveland club:
It was organized first temporarily in
the fall of tbe last presidential campaign.
It was at the time of G;n . Palmer's visit
to Monmouth and the ladies got together
for the purchase of a fine silk banner and
flag for the men's Cleveland club. Every
subscriber to the fund was made a mem
ber of tbis club. After the campaign
ended tbe ladies organized permanently
and have been constant in
tbe faith since. Tbey have held
monthly meetings for themselves and a
number of nice public entertainments
have been gotten up by them. Among
tbe most successful was tbe reception to
Hon. Delos P. Phelps upon his being
named as chairman of tbe democratic
state central committee. Another nice
affair was the reception after tbe election
last fall to the candidates of the party.
It was held at J. H? Puttee's residence on
South Main street. The club bas cele
brated each of the anniversaries of pecu
liarly democratic events. The officers of
the cub at present are: Mrs J. U. Pat-
tee, president: Mrs. J. P. Firo7ed, Mrs.
Cnarles tilenberger and Mrs. Mc3rew
vice-presidents: Miss Anna Morrow,
treasurer;. Miss Katherine Patterson, re
cording secretary; Mrs. J. H H an lev.

A Real Balsam is Kemp's Balsam
The dictionery says, "a balssm is a
thick, pure, aromatic substance flowing
from trees." Kemp's Balsam for the
throat and lungs is tbe only cough medi
cine that is a real balsam. Many thin,
watery cough remedies are called balsam's
bnt such are not. Look through a bottle
of Kemp's Balsam and notice vrtaat a pure,
thick preparation it is. If you cough

Scarcely lees fojlWb Is the practice of those who
fly to violent physiclng for eostiveaess. They
dose themselves violently weaken their bowels by
so doing, and disable them from acting regularly,
so that, verily, the last condition of such people
la worse than the first. Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters is the safe and effective substitute for such
vast expedients, for it Is by co means expedient
to nse them. What is needed is a gentle bat
thoroaeh laxative, which not only insures action
of the bowels without pain or weakening effects,
which also promotes a healthy secretion and flow
of bile into Its proper channel. Dyspepsia, de
bility, kidney complaints, rheumatism and ma
laria give in to the Bitten.
