No better weather nor better roads
could exist for the purposes of logging
tban have been en toyed in the woods for
the pas' 10 days. With sufficient idow,
but not too much, and weather far below
the frezmg poD, the logging industry
has been at its best. In no place on the
upper Mississippi is snow reported deep
er than 13 inches, nor in any place less
than eight. Ice roads when mads need
little or no repair. Both men and horses
are now thoroughly hardened to their
work and the grip is rapidly disappearing
from the camps. Very little sickness of
any kind cow prevails. Ia this respect
the upper Mississippi camps are more
fortunate than those of noithern Wiscon
sin. More than one-half the proposed cut of
los is now banked. One firm that
started in for 100.000,000 expect to have
two-thirds that am-unt at the water by
Saturday nigat. Same thrifty concerns
that started work early and have had the
advantage of short hauls or logging reads
Dave gone evea beyond this record, but
the aggregate of logs now banked in this
territory does not reach two-thirds of the
expected cut. Generally speaking the
logging will not continue, even though
good weather continues, beyond the limit
proposed at the opening of the season.
Stumpage is too valuable to justify the
cutting of a surplus nf logs that must lie
over one or more seasons and deteriorate
in quality before coming to the saw.

Tlit- Spot on the Hna.
Tee scientific papers have all been full
of references to the great spot on the sun
that lately appeared. They connect it in
some occult manner with the recent won
derful display of aurora borealis. The
spot is reported by the men of science as
being 140.000 miles long by 100.000
miles wide. They said that it could easly
be seen by means of a piece of smoked
or colored glass. The Geneseo News
says: "The good Bland tried it the
other day, but without success. All he
could see'was the glowing round disc of
the sun, without a solitary spot upon it,
though he got one on his nose from the
smoked glass. Bland says, however,
and adheres to it, that be saw a star. As
the observation was taken in the middle
of tbe afternoon, this may be regarded as
something out of the common line of
evt-nts Men sometimes see stars in tbe
daytime; but it is usually after some
severe contusion of the cranium."
At the present time the business men
of Rock Island and Moline are unable to
talk about about anything except tbe
great Columbian exposition which tbe
cities of Rock Island and Moline expect
to hold this year. Already the ground
has been secured. It is the intention
ta make a permanent institution, a stock
company being organized for the pur
pose. The stock is finding a ready sale
and it is expected that ail will ooo be
taken. Tbe grounds are situated be
tween Rock Island and Moline and
are most admirable for tbe
purpo e. Permanent buildings will
be erected. A race track will find a
pi ice on the grounds, a baae ball park and
in tbe winter a 6kating rink. It ia also
proposed to rent to circuses and similar
amusements in order to secure a revenue.
Tbe Tribune certain1? wishes our sister
cities success in their enterprise. Tbey
have been talking of c nsolidition for
some time, but it has all been talk. This
Columbian exhibition schema will i
more to bring about the desired result
than anything else. Tbe two cities
should be united and it is more than like
ly that when tbey s?e the good that
united strength can do they will rei.ch
some agreement whereby consolidation
can be effected. Davenport Tribune.

Blanche Picrson. tbo famous French

pertinently curious but evidently admiring
correspondent who asked her the secret of
the beautiful eyelashes for which she is
distinguished: '"The recipe is extremely
simple. The requisites are, first, eye
lashes; second, an extremely fine comb;
third, a stick of black cosmetic. A lady
in possession of these means has only to
pass the comb through the eyelashes after
rubbing it with the cosmetic, et viola! the
result is achieved."
