There is considerable talk in base ball
circles c f late about the organization of a

coming season. With this end in view
the "old leaguers" will give a dance on

Our Ro k Island and Moline friends
are workii g together with a harmony that
gives promise of results. They are hold
ing semi-cccasional meetings to discuss
the twin-city exposition which is expected
to materii'ize next jear. Tbey have
gone so far as to get an option on 23
acres of land nearly midway between the
two ci'.ies. True, it takes something
more than an option to erect buildings
and secure attractions, but the option is
all right, s far as it goes. Tbere are de
sirable eit:s for fair grounds between
Rock Islani and Moline, and wben tbe
exposition gets under way it will have the
proportion of a modern fair. Daven
Tbe Bowling road case which has been
pending for sometime was argued at the
residence c f Benson Badham in Taylor
Ridge yesterday. William Jackson aps
pearing for Mr. Bidham and C L.
Walker for the Bowling commissioners.
A motion was entered by Mr. Walker to
dismiss the appeal, it having been
brought irregularly, as the road had been
laid out jointly by tin Black Hawk and
Bowling commissioners, and not alone by
tbe commissioner of Bowling against
whom the aj. peal was made. Supervisors
Wilson, Schneider and Naylor before
whom the motion was argued decided that
the point made by the attorney for the
commissione-s was well taken, and that
they had no jurisdiction.
Simon Moynier, said to be formerly of

When he returned, he found his wife dy

The Origin r tliu .llciiui' ,
A German astronomical publication
tcives the following Recount of tho origin
of the menu: At the meeting of electors
in Regensburg in the year l-ffitf, Elector
Henry, of I3rautischwei, attracted gen
eral notice at i state dinner. - lie had n
long paper before him, to which ho re
ferred every time before he ordered a dish.
The Karl of Mont fort, who nut near him,
nsked him what he was reading. The elec
tor silently handed the paper to his ipter
rogator. It coutuine.1 a list of the viands
prepared for the occasion, which the elec
tor had ordered the cook to write out for
him. The idea of having such a list so
pleased the illustrious assembly that tbey
introduced it each in his own hotiHehohl,
and since that time the fashion of having
a menu has spread all over the civilized
The Wishing Tree of I.vcli Maree.
On an island in Loch Muree is n vvifsliinK
tree. It has been nearly killed by kind
ness, poor thing. ' To accomplish the wish
it is necessary to knock into the bark of it
some kind of coin. The result is that
pence and small silver coi ns can be seen
Kticking in the bark like pins in a cushion.
The very poor put in nails and pins. There
is a saying that fools put in the coins for
wise men to take them out. Certainly no
gold was risible, although the queen set
the gold fashion by herself depositing a
sovereign in the gnarled old tree when she
staid at Loch Maree a few years ago. Lou

Elizabeth, X. J., Nov. 20. Early
Thursday uiornlug the southern express
on tbe Pennsylvania railroad killed t-o
Poles who were crossiug the tracks near
this city in a wagon. The men were
butchers. One of them, Hebron Diamond,
resided on South Broad street, not ftr
from the scene of the accident. His body
was cut in pieces. His companion, who
had been in this country but a short time
and was known as David, was not nri
tilated. The wagon was smashed to pieces
and the horse killed. Diamond leaves n
wife aud eight children. The other man
leaves a fauiiiy in the old country.
Drank Whiskv and Morphine.
Rhisklandkii. Wis., Nov. 20 Two
men who Wednesday evening finished up
along drunk by going to one of their
homes and emptying a pint bottle of
whisky, which contained twenty grain of
morphine, died from the dose vesterday
morniug. They were William Huston '.

The Telegraph and the Typewriter.
Tho w riter watched a telegraph operator
as he clicked on a typewriter the words
that came over the wire. The trip-trip of
the typewriter sounded so much like the
dot-dusk of the telegraph instrument that
it seemed curious that no confusion was
occasioned. It seemed inevitable that the
two noises must sometimes lead to a doubt
iu the operator's mind. But when spoken
to about this he said:
"There is no real similarity between
these sounds, so far as the trained ear is
concerned. That is not the chief difficulty
iu this combination. The difficulty is in
spontaneously striking the right type
writer letter, in turning tho lines correctly
and in not making a slip that will make it
impossible for you to keep up with the
telegraph key. Of course the typewriter is
more rapid than the Morse system can be
made, but the turning of the lines, the
spacing and the hyphenating at the ending
of the lines when you neglect to carry over
the whole word bring down the speed very
closely to the key. You see the telegraph
operator has to make sometimes five dis
tinct dots or dashes for one letter, while
the typewriter key makes a -letter at one
stroke. The Morse dots are made by a
very slight motion, however, while the
typewriter stop has to have a certain firm
ness equivalent in expended force to sev
eral of the telegraph key motions." San

Preparing to Oive Itriee Trouble.
Cleveland, Xov. 29. Judge King says
that he will call a meeting of the state
central committee of the Republican
party next week at Columbus to consider
the case of I'uited States Senator-elect
Calvin S. Brice. He says he is favor of
tbe adoption of a resolution setting forth
that the election of Senator Brice was
secured by corruption, frand and bribery,
and that Mr. Brice was not an inhabitant
of the state at the time of his election.
This, he says, he can prove by the affida
vits of reputable citizens of Lima.
