their package alongside that of Mr.

Mr. Staker had no use for the toilet

THE DECLINE IN TEMPERATURE.
Locating the State Valr. '
The cities of Peoria. Bloomioeton.
uecatur ana Hpnngneld are each trying
to secure the location of the State fair.
It would seem that the proper place to
locate the State fair would be at the
capital of the state, where saitable
grounds, buildings, etc , could be seemed
permanently, and thus save the cost of
fitting up new grounds every year or so
The arffumeut often used against such an
arrangement is tbat "nogs" would be
formed and that the people of the
state would be constantly subject
ed to "rings" rule, while, bv chang
ing around, such would not be
the case. Bat then there are usually
"combinations'' of different kinds formed
by either state or local managers, and
sometimes by both, no matter where the
fair ta located hence it makes but little
difference to the people generally whether
such combinations are formed in one or
a dozen cities so leng as they sre
formed, and the dear people are com
pelled "to pay their money and take their
choice, right or wrong. Delavan Ad
After copying the above the Peoria
Journal says: "Now, why Delavai
should be working so hard for the loea
tion of the state fair at Springfield is hard
to conjecture, unless she expects to get
in the ring. Delavan would be indi
vidually benefitted by having the fair at
Peoria, so far as distance is concerned,
and seeing that Peoria is the only place
the fair prospers, it is strange her ioflu
nee is not cast this way."

A Hungry Slan's Dreams.
One of the worst evils attending penal
servitude is said to be the hunger which
assails a man with a healthy appetite dur
ing the first few months or years of hie im
prisonment. A man who has just done
long term for forgery says:
I used to goto bed every night pinched
by hunger. I began dreamingof banquets.
and would have thought nothing strange
about it had not the same dream come to
me every night. The banquet was always
the same, in the same place, and I always
had the same plane at the table.
The exasperating thing about it was
that just as the lirst course was offered I
always awoke, so that even in my dreams
I was not permitted to taste of the munifl
cent spread which was nightly presented
to me in my sleep.
I dreaded to go to bed because the
dream tortured me. It only made me the
hungrier, and I then understood the agony
of Tantalus, the fabled hero who was tor
tured with thirst, and to whose lips the
waters were ever coming and receding just
as he was in the act of taking a drink.

Snow on Christmas Eve.
It could not have been a more ideal
Christmas, meteorologically speaking.
Nature had during the preceding wees
spread a beautiful mantle of white o'er
the earth, woich daring Cbristmis eve
had been considerately replenished in
many places, so that the nimble footed
reindeer of the generous old man who is
the dtlight of childhood might not be re
tarded in making his rounds. As the
flickering flakes ceased to fall toward
midnight, however, the mercury began to
decline. It fell gradually ail day yes
terday and more rapidly as the day ad
vanced. During the night it continued
its downward tendency, until this morning
found thermometers arying from 10 to
20 below according to thr locality.
Coldest of the Tear.
This was the coldest weather of the
year, comparisons showing a difference
in temperature of from 25 to 30 degrees
between the temperature of yesterday
morning and that of this morning.
Prognostications as to what we may
expect in the way of weather are impos
sible, as the signal service is taking a
a ay on, in common with all government
institutions to observe Christmas.

As exemplifying the pitch to which
Roman epicureanism was carried and in
dicative of a truly barbaric nature, a dish
consisting of the tongues alone of some
thousands of the favorite songsters of the
air was requisitioned at immense cost to
satisfy the inordinate cravings of one of
the emperors. One can hardly avoid the
reflection that such a being must have
been extremely untunef uL The liver of a
capon steeped in milk was thought a great
delicacy, and of solid moat pork appears to
have been most relished.

partaken, constructed like a theater, with
