Since the flrfit attack wg made
upon the adoptel route of the
Hennepin canal to the mouth of Rock
river. ITnE Aroes has deprecatedany ah
tagoDiim to the course of the govern
ment'tf practical and experienced en
gineers, not because of friendliness to the
adopted line or of opposition to the aban
doned rontp, but hrrsuse it had confi
dence in the juJgmert of the engineers,
and because it belieyd the canal of im
portance, paramount to the mere personal
preferences in the tsa.Ur of route and, be
cause too, it realized the danger of delay
ing woik in the very hour of Ion? looked
for Ion? worked for triumph. The A Rous
has held that there was not enough dif
ference inj the two routes not more
than h stone's throw a.ait to warrant the
delay in operations that would be conse
quent upon any effort to change the ea
tiiblished line. Th.3 course, it wis
bel'.cvvd, was coniit: t vith the policy
ever pursued by the true friends of the
measure, that it was c f national import
ance, and that the idsi of its construction
by the government whs not in the slight
est degree for the purpose of sd deciding
its course as to enrich any people at the
government's expense, no matter what
had been their labors or efforts in behalf
of the project.
It is now learned fnm a reliable source
that in consequence of the delay natural
ly attendant upon the labors of a com
mission to go over the work of the
engineers, the whole measure is likely to
go over until next spring before active,
actual operations are entered
upon; that the coir. mission will not
meet until about the i liddle of Septem-
h- ll T t r: ,f 4iq v:r-
will "! f - r'p'-'f"! r;r.lp"i h rfti."'
aro particularly active iu time for U. S.
District Attorney Mikarist to enter the
condemnation procee lings in the next
session of tne I". S d strict court which
convenes at Peoria. Ot.t. 1. In such an
event the proceedings will necessarily go
over to tbe April term, and in Uie mean
time the canal construction will stand idle
all winter, while the enemies cf the
Hennepin will have the argument to
present in counteraction of any efforts
for further appropriations for construc
tion, that the half mi lion appropriated
at tne last session has not been expended
and That the measure seems to beone of lo
cal contention anyway. However false thes
representations may bt, tlie course of the
oppositionists to tbe government surveys
has opened the way to making them and
tbey can be used with effect, too.

to reach the Illinois sbore. but the boat

notes of birds, and the sweet song of the
skylark, as heard at "heaven's i;ate," has
been said to be a repetition of the word,
"tirra-lvca," a coinbijmtion of sounds bor
rowed from tiio French tire-liia. Shake
speare iu the "Wintor's Tle" speaks of
"the lark that tirra-lirra chants," and
Browne, in his "Britannia's Pastorals'
makes it "tecry leery." The v.ooJlark's
note resembles thn syllables "lu In," or
"ter lu," and the plaintive cry of the
chaffinch, which is generally considered a
forerunner of wet weather, is rhymingly
imitated by the English peasantry who cry
out when tbey see the bird, "Weet-weet!
The cry of the wood pigeon, which has
been interpreted as meaumt; "Take tno-o
coo. Tally 1 take tuo-o coo, Taffy!" forms
tbe subject of au old Suffolk legend. The
magpie, runs the story, ouce undertook to
teach the pigeon how to build a more sub
stantial and commodious nest; but in
stead of being a docile pupil the pigeon
kept on her old cry of "Take tno, Taffy 1
take tuol" The magpie insisted that one
stick at a tihie was as much as could be
munatred to advantage; but the p;g 3,
heedless of the advice, kept on crying- it
as liefore, "Tuo. take fuo." Therei n

Le Journal ( HIicial pu til ,i-l,es some read
able statistics relative to the divorces and
separations decreed iu- France during a
period of twelve months. The divorces
granted after less than one year's connubial
happines-i a-mount to 3 per "eeut. Then
comes a tremendous jump to 23 per cent, in
the case of unions having lasted fromone to
five years. The heaviest proportion of all
is that fir the period extending from the
fifth to the tenth year, tne number reached
being 40 per cent. After that the figures
drop rapidly. Ouly 2Sper cent, of couples
seek divorce between their tenth and
twentieth years of union; between twenty
and thirty the proportion is ouly 6 per
cent., aud finally only one pair in a hun
dred ceeks to cut the knot after sailing
throuKh life together for over thirty and
under forty years. After more than forty
summers of wedded happiness there is no
instance of the French equivalent for "a
decree nisi." Conjugal infidelity is only
the cause of just one-fifth of the divorces'

Deafness Can't bs Cored
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diceased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deifness is caused by an iDflimed condi
tion of the mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tune gets inflamed
yon bae a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearin", and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless lha im
f) animation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is notbiug but an inflamed condis
tion of the mucous surface.
We will uive $100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catarrh) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure.
