the same. The denominations are 1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6. 10, 15, 30 and 50 cents, and 1, 2,
3. 4 and 5 dollars.

land eminent artists of the world. There

ing driven to drink by the resulting
drouthincss of his tongue.
The new stamps were authorised by
tbe last session of congress and are the
most elaborate and ornamental ever used

ROMANCE AND REALITY.
Two Marrlare Ceremonies Which Will
Attract More or Less Attention tn Kock
Ten years ago Seth Morgan was prom
inently identified with the business de
part men J of some of the newspapers of
the threa cities, the old Davenport Ga
zette and the Rock Mand Union. While
owning ft. portion of the Gazette and run
ning tbe business department be took ad
vantage of tbe absence in Washington of
Edward Russell, the editor, who had been
sent east by the citizens of the three cit
ies in th interests of the Hennepin canal
and placed Gaorge C. Smythe. of Cam
bridge, in his place. This capped the
climax of the many unpopular acts which
marked Morgan's connection with the
Gazette, and he fell into such disfavor
that he Koon left the paper, going to Des
Moines, where he was admitted to the
bar, succeeded in disgracing himself
again acd moved to Denver, where his
latest fr-'ak is his marriage to a 13 year
old girl. Soon after locating in Daven
port Lrt married an estimable lady from
WashiDf ton, la., but afterward they were
The Denver Times tells in its issue of
Dec. 30 of Mr. Morgan's latest. The
Times is a 16 page paper, aDd it gives the
first column of its first page to Mr. Mor
gan and his bride, with a big display
heading :hrown in. From the account it
is 8:en that the girl is named Bsssie
Montgomery. She wrs quietly married
to Mr. Morgan on Dec. 26, the marriage
license being procured in an adjoining
csunty md the bonds being lied while
Miss Bessie was taking a two-weeks' va
cation frj-n the Boulevard school, which
tVooil ami Rosa May.
According to the Peoria papers, C. G.
Woods, who was conaected with thu
merry-gc -round at the Watch Tower last
summer, has eloped with Rosa May, the
aeronaut who likewise was an attraction
at tbe Tc wer during the summer season .
Wood leaves a wife in Rock Island, with
whom fir a year or more he lived hap
pily while employed by the express com
panies htre, and also as a traveling sales
man befcre he entered upon a reckless
way of living. His attentions to the fair
lal!ooimt durirg the summer excited
some comment while the two were at tbe
Tower, and since her return to Peoria
he, it seems, followed her there and the
elopement resulted. Rosa ;May leaves a
husband and children at Peoria.
