far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and us Castoria in

destroying thuir loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending

A Well K siown and Prespereas Boat
Is ne More Ran for Klne teen
After a most successful career of 19
seasons, the tow boat LeClaire Belle has
been dismantled, and her hull lies at the
foot of Brady street at Davenport. The
cabin was taken off at LeClaire, and the
boilers were removed. Capt. Sam Van
Ssnt of Winona, her owner, was in town
the other day attending her funeral and
sold tbe hull to the Joy Lumber company
of St. Louis.
The LeClaire Belle was built at Le
Claire, across the river, 19 years ago, and
she has been in aciive service ever since.
She earned in that time $405,320 and
made a clear profit of $87,460. She was
a familiar figure on the river, and her
whistle was as well known as that of any
one of the packets. During all these
years of hard work she had no serious ac
cidents. She was what river men call a
lucky boat, and was a general favorite.
When it came to the last many were anx
ious to secure mementoes. The J. W.
Van Sant got her whistle and the Silver
Crescent her big bell and pilot wheel.
Capt. John McCaffrey commanded the
Belle three years; James Hugunin, six
years; Bob Mitchell, four years, and H
Short, three years. It was unaer Capt.
Short's management she acquired the
soubriquet" "Midnight Belle." Capt.
Blair of the Silver Crescent always
pointed with pride to the LeClaire Belle
as "my old home;" for it was on her he
first began on the river as clerk and
watchman in '78. Capt. Van Sant re
placed the Belle by purchasing the Glen
mont of the Laird & Norton Co. of Win
ona. When it is considered that it used
to be the rule among river men to build
a boat, make out of her all she was capa
ble of earning in her first three years,
and then sell her for what she would
bring, the LeClaire Belle's service of
nearly a score of years and her large
profits to her owners seem exceptional.
An Kdltor'w Wo.n.
The woes of Dewitt C. Owen, the hand
some and talented editor of the Port
Byron Globe, just now constitute the all
absorbing theme of society circles in thai
quiet village. For many long months the
Globe editor has been paying tbe most
marked attention to one of Port Byron's
most beautiful, coy and accomplished
daughters, and for a long time tbe loving
young couple have been in that felicitous
state of cetrolhal that is described in the
single word "engaged." The date of the
happy event was Bet for the month
of September and the knight of
the quill rented a house, made other
arrangements, and had all but
engaged the minister to perform the
ceremony. All went well until about a
fortnight since, when the course of true
love became turbulent, and Editor 0en
and his fiance had a very bad break.
It really looks as though a truce would
not be patched up either. The fuss, as
the story goes, started while a party of
the young society people of the classic
little city were out camping on the shores
of the rippling Rock, and as is usual cn
such occasions, innocent flirtations .re
not an unknown quantity. Anyhow
Editor Owen and his affianced became
estranged, and tbe funny part of it is that
each accuses the other of having been
flirtatious. Moline Republican-Journal.

Yesterday was the biggist dy in the
history of the Tower in piiat of people
visiting that historic resort. The street
car company ran 16 trtins durin? the af
ternoon, many of them being double
headers. Eight thousand people were
handled, and the ruh demonstrated the
advisability of doubling as much of the
road as possible. Work will at once be
commenced in extf-nlin? the double track
on the Tour to 8ars. and probably be
fore next spring tbe line will ba doubled
the entire length.
The ancient Turkish couriers always ran
with bare feet, which Rrew so hard and
destitute of feeling that they are said to
have had themselves shod, like horses, with
light Iron shoes. To render the resem
blance more complete, they carried in their
mouths balls of silver pierced with holes,
and champed these as a horse does his bit.
Further, their belts and garters were fur
nished with little bells, which tinkled
wherever they went.
Besides their pay they received two full
suits of clothes every year. Their costume
consisted of an Albanian cassock of dam
ask or striped satin and a belt of silk en
riched with gold, in which they carried
their poniard. Later they began to wear
coverings upon their feet long stockings
as well as a rude kind of shoe. Upon their
heads they wore high bonnets covered with
silver, from which waved enormous plumes
of ostrich feathers. In one hand each man
carried his hatchet and in the other a bag
full of comfits, with which they kept their
mouths moist while running.
In this costume they accompanied their
noble master and conveyed his messages
as far as he pleased to send t hem. As soon
as they had received his orders away they
went, leaping and capering among the
crowd with the agility of a deer, crying,
"Sauli, sauli:" ("Take care, take care!")
On they rushed, night and day, with aston
ishing swiftness, taking no repose until
they had delivered the message intrusted
to them. Harper's Young People.
