A Cackling Hen
May be excused from making an aw
fully hi racket over a mighty little egg;
but when the cackles for an hour over a
China door knob it is time to throw a
brick at her. There is also some excuse
for a merchant cackling a good deal over
A UENUTNE BARGAIN,
but when the 80 called bargain turns out
to be a dooi! knob i$ 4.1 gain, it is time
somebody threw a brick or a "shoo" at
the noisy thing. There's an awful lot of
cackling about bargains going on, out
we'll bet they'er all door-knob bargains,
so here goss our brick; Vi'll meet any
price, show better quality for the same
money, and do as well if not better by
you ihun any other firm in Uock Island.
No door knob bargains about this.

One Game He Hadn't Played.
The Main house. In Columbia, was the
scene of a jolly crowd of the knights of the
grip a few days ago. They were whiling
away a rainy day telling jokes, performing
tricks with cards, and playini; practical
joh.es upon eacn other. There was one
man in the company, a new drummer,
rather young and unsophisticated, but, oh,
how smart he thought himself. He knew
everythinK better than nil the rest. He
polled every trick bv tcllinir how it was
rlone and ruined every joke by calling out
the point in advance of the speaker. The
boys tried to squelch him, but it could not
"You seem to know almost evervthine."
said an old clothing drummer sarcastically.
"ies," replied the young man, "there
r few tricks or jukes that I don't know.
Vou enn't catch this chicken."
The fiendish smile lit up the features of
uie clothing man as a plot flashed through
lis head. "Did you ever play the game of
gossip?" he naked after awhile.
"No," replied the other, "at least I never
-played it under that name."
The clothing man gratified the loys in a
semicircle, taking care to pluce the pro
prietor of the hotel at the very end and
next to him ho stationed the smart young
fellow. Then he gave his instructions.
Kach was to repeat as exactly as possible
the sentence he heard into the ear of the
man next to him. The one who made a
mistake was to pay a forfeit. It was very
"I would like a bottle of champagne and
seven glasses," was the sentence which
the clothing man whispered into the ear of
his neighbor. Kach in turn whisjiered it to
the next man, until the smart boy whis
pered it to the hotel proprietor. "I would
like a bottle of champagne and seven
"Certainly," replied the proprietor, as he
arose with alacrity to Oil the order. A
bottle was brought in and the unsophis
ticated young man had to pay for it, for it
was his order. The bottle was emptied
with great gusto by the assembled drum
mers, and for the time being at least the
young man hadn't another word to say.
Speaking Ills I'iere.
Major Campion's dog started a deer and
dashed oft" in pursuit. At that moment a
well mounted Indian, a Ute, appeared in
sight, the first one that Major Campion
The deer and the dog disapjieared in the
thicket. Just then the major crossed a
roujih hollow, and when he came again in
sight of the thicket he found the Indian's
horse tied to a tree. Tho major fastened
his own horse near the Indian's and pushed
into the brush.
There lie found Nip, his dog, astride the
dead body of tho deer, while the Indian
stood a little way off, bow and arrow in
hand, violently remonstrating with the
dog, speaking in the Ute tongue with a
mixture of Knglish words.
Major Campion ordered Nip to down
charge and then held up his open right
hand with the palm toward the Ute the
recognized sign of peace. The Indian re
laxed his 1hw, laid it down and advanced
to shake hands, all the while with a sharp
eye on t he dog.
I5y means of signs he made the white
man understand that he had wounded the
deer, and was in pursuit of it when the dog
pullifl it down. Ihen he drew his knife,
skinned and cut up the deer in a work
manlike manner, tied the fore half of it up
in the skin and placed it on one side. The
other half he laid at Major Campion's feet,
at the same time pointing to Nip and de
livering himself of a speech In the Ute
The white man understood his meaning,
but not a word of his nddress. The Indian
and the dog had killed the deer together.
and tiie dog's owner was entitled to half
the game. The speech called for a reply
and the major was equal to the emergency
He arose and delivered in full the classical
declamation, "My name is Xorvnl," with
appropriate gestures, just as he had many
times given it at school.
Nothing could have been better. As he
says, it was a great success. The Indian
was moved. He and the wldte man shook
hands with effusion, and each with his
share of the venison rode away. Youth's
Property in Chicago.
Sixtv vears ago the lot where the Chi
cago opera house now stands, at Clark
and Washington streets, one of the most
central in the city, was sold fur tl
sum of sixtv-one dollars lawful nionev
wildcat currency In-ing regarded lawful in
those days if you could get anybody to ac
cept it. Yes, sir; that lot, which will soon
be worth a million, was sold by the com
missioners of Cook county to John Noble
for less than an extra good suit of clothes
would cost now. The Noble family still
have the original deed in their possession
It is well not to fnrget such evidences of
our progress, prospects and opportunities.
Many lioys, and even young men, are now
living In Chicago who will be living here
sixty years hence, and who will see more
remarkable and surprising changes and
greater increases in property values than
the opera house lot shows. This lot is now
worth ?7.fHKi or fS,X.f a front foot, or prob
ably ;00,000 or 7HI,000. Chicago is des
tined to have r,(MK),l)0 or 0,000,000 people-

will be the IJveriool of America. There

Diamond Fields of India.
Diamond fields in India were known
from the verv earliest times. In the sa
cred books of India tight localities are
mentioned as yielding diamonds, and of
these three have been identified with the
three great diamond fields known at the
nresent day Matauga (Kistna antl uou-
avery), Paunda (Chota Nagpur) and Vena
Gunga ( Wairaghar). The diamondiferous
area of India, so far as is known, is per
haps more extensive than that of the rest
of the world, and nine-tenthsof the famous
jewels are Indian stones. Mining and lu
A Great Work of Art.
It was Apelles who visited the studio
of Protogenes in Rome, and finding the
artist absent drew a thin colored line in
such a way that the Koman tnew tnat
v,ia (:w..iin brother could have done
it. But, not to be outdone, Protogenes
drew a thinner line upon that of Apelles,
and when this was seen Apelles drew a
i,;,i iin main tlmt. nf Protoirt-nes. This
panel was then looked upon as the greatest
work of art, bo says the story, in the pal

XI ie Abbot of Fools.
The Abbott of Fools, who was also known
in different parts as the Archbishop or
Bishop of Fools, the Abbot of Misrule, the
Liord of Misrule, the Master of Unreason
anil JAbbe de Liesse, was the person who
used to superintend the saturnalia, which
were common in different parts of Europe
from tho Fifth to the Sixteenth century.
x he feast or fools was an imitation of the
heathen saturnalia, and like this was cele
brated in December; hence the confusion
of ideas which has arisen in mixing this
feast with the ordinary Christmas revels.
The chief celebration of the feast of fools
fell upon Innocent's Day, but the whole
revels lasted from Christmas to the last
day of Kpiphauy. The young people gen
erally elected a leader who went by one of
the names quoted, anil lie was consecrated
with many grotesque and ridiculous ceremonies.
England, Scotland, France and f Jermauy
all practiced these wild saturnelia, and it
was with groat dilliculty that they were
finally abolished. The abbot was not re
sponsible for any trick or practical joke
played on tho rest of the community by his
orders, and tho victims had simply to
"grin and bear it." In the temple (law
headquarters, London,) the office of the
lord of misrule seems to have lieen a
coveted one, for we read that it was only
given to young men of good family.

The Gridiron Stamp Mark.
I heard a gentleman the other day ex
plaining the origin of the "gridiron" or
music staff, which forms a part of the post
mark of a number of Uncle Sam's offices
throughout the country. I thought per
haps it would be interesting to young read
ers. It was in Boston, when that city was
the literary center. At that time the edi
tors there were deluged with manuscripts.
Contributors had a habit of putting three
or four stamps on return envelopes. In
order to avoid hitting the envelope two or
three times to cancel the stamps, some ui
genious postoffice clerk conceived the idea
of the "gridiron," which was put to service
at once and has since been in vogue. Cor.
