Tbe twin city Fourth, of July Colum
bian celebration in 1812 is practically assured.
That tbere will be a joint demonstra
tion is conceded in botu cities and now
only remains to consider and arrange as
to details. The meeting of the two
badness men's associations in this citv
next Tuesday, night :s txpected to do
much in the direction of this end. Tlie
first point is of course to formally decide
upon a joint celebration on the Fourth
of July, also something of its nature.
Then will come suggestions as to some of
its features, among which arc the silver
brick planting ceremonies on the comple
tion of the psvement between the two
cities, although it is barely possible this
mty be made the fea'.ure of a separate
observance in which the two cities will
join hands. It would however form an
imposing part of the celebration on Ju'y
Fourth, and notwithstanding that the
pavement in boh citic may be comple
ted before that time, s indeed it is earn
estly to be hoped it will be. the formal
brick laying exercises can be postponed
until that dale.
There have already been a number of
suggestions made as to the nature of the
Columbian celebration . One plan, anl
a very excellent one ii is, is that the
morning be devoted to a grand industrial
and historical parade, made up of bnnds
of music and floats representative of
the manufacturing and commer
cial enterprises of tbe two ci ies.

of amusement in both cities with a grand
demonstration of somi; sort at night with
ihe two cities vieing with each other in
tbe manner of street i lustrations.

The St. Paul is having a peck of
trouble making her way up the river this
time. She passed Eurlington Friday
morning at 7 o'clock, but got no further
than the O'.ter island crossing, near that
city where she was untitle to get over the
bar. She lay tbere all day, making occa
sional attempts to work through. There
is three feeet of water over the bar, but
the channel at that depth is too narrow to
allow the passage of tbe St. Paul, which
is a side-wheeler, and is of unusual
breadth at beam. An attempt was to
have been made last evening to spar the
boat through, but what success it met
with is not known.
The experiment of shipping lumber
down the Mississippi river by barge has

this work during its entire progress that
it was most farhfully and conscientious

only add that it is srenerally conceded by
those interested that the work on this

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is Caused by an infliuied condi
tion of the muciuis lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tuoe gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
da'ness is the. result, and ucless th3 im
fiauimation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cises out of nre caused by catarrh,
which is notbiug but an inflamed condN

We will give $100 for any cai-e of
dct.irje.s (caused by catarrh) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Ctttanh cure.
