The New York World says that when
the Illinois democrats get through over

Officials there will probably be additional
reasons for placing this state in the per

Ten thousand petitions have been re
ceived by Representative Duburrow, of
Chicago. They are all in favor of open

come from every state, and the committee

The Sandwich Islands have about 82,
000 inhabitants. Of these 20.000 are
Chinamen. There are ft few thousand
Americana and other foreigners and
whites of native birth, including hun
dreds ot mixed blood who are civilized
and educated. The bulk of tbe native
population are Polynesians, a race about
half way between the Malays and ne
groes. Whether from too thorough
knowledge of their nature, or fiom total
ignorance of their condition, we know
not, but the Sandwich Inlands have be
come tT be regarded as the last of all
creation; and tbe people as a whole htve

ECCS WERE MARKED FRESH.
Bat She Freshest Thiia; About Them Was
an Ambltlc os Chick.
In the sawdust strewn show window
in one of those curious little Frenchy
shops on Ninth avenue possibly a hun
dred thousand or more eyes" looking
absently from the elevated trains have
seen a lot of eggs carefully arranged on
end, a la Columbm, with the notice
"fresh" upon them, says the N. T.
Whether it was th- delicacy of humor
in this rebus or the fascination of see
ing a couple dozen of fresh eggs in a
position so wholly unnatural to fresh
eggs, and in a pla.e where nothing
else appeared fresh to the naked eye,
a good many people paused in front
long enough to fully master the sign.
It is one of those queer little all nisht
shops where mixed groceries, Eve
birds, coffee and rol 3, and toys, candy
and cigars are kept on draught. I
allude to the egg sign In the past tense
because the sign is there no longer. It
had been there so long and was so
cute and wa9 admired by so many
variegated people ho pass that way
day and night that it seems a pity.
But 'tis ever thus 'I've seen my fond
est hopes decay" and that is what
was the matter with the eggs. The
difficulty of replacing this neat design
every day or so, and the warm atmos
phere day and night did the business.
At any rate, one early evening, when
the passing throng of 6 o'clock people
was greatest, two "ents" and a mes
senger boy were getting a 10 cent din
ner at one of the liule bare tables in
rear, while the lirds were twit
tering in the cages a ad the gas in the
narrow show windev threw the usual
yellow but kindly glare upon the rebus
"Them there folks is greatly took
wid our eggs," remarked the stout
and oleaginous lady who was putting
up a dozen for a lean and hungry
looking customer. And she slapped
her tousled head to ard the window.
Some dirty boys ware earnestly gaz
ing into the window in the fore
ground, but this wai common there.
It was the fast-increasing group of respectable-looking
people that stirred
the pride of the shop woman.
Just at that moment the wicked
boys outside raised Comanche yell,
while the well-dressed men and women
snickered and laughed outright, and
looked inside the store as if it were
afire. The messenger boy at the table
gulped down the d.-egs"of his coffee
and hurried out.
"Ilully gee!" he cried, a9 he rushed
back again and hissed in the ear of
the proprietress, "it's a chicken!"
"Go long wid yer f jolin," exclaimed
"It's a live chicken a tryin' to born
bisself in de fresh sigs!" hissed the
boy like a heavy villain.
Any lingering dout was instantly
removed by a renewed demonstration
outside. The lean snd hungry cus
tomer who had just received the fresri
eggs in a bag and was counting out her
chang. deliberately set the bag down
on a barrel, put thn change in her
pocket and went indignantly out of
In the mean time a tender little
fledgling, having burst the bonds that
separated it from th'! busy world and
a possible broiler, had paused upon
the brink of the adventure and was
looking with mixed curiosity and
alarm al the strange spectators. It
wasn't quite certain, iut there was a
mistake somewhere, though the poor
innocent didn't seem to know where it
Tbe old woman did. however, for she
turned off the gas and slammed the
door, looking elagjreis at the crowd
that hastened laughingly away.
When the light was turned on again
the rebus of "fres-h 'ggs" bad disap
peared. Why the Poor Father Wept.
One stormy night eighteen years
ago, so runs the story, a Maine girl
living in the town cf Biddeford ex
pressed her determination to attend a
"poand" party at a neighbor's house.
But her parents said her nay. She,
however, persisted in her determina
tion, and finally her father said: "You
are no longer a child of mine if you
go." She went. She never returned
home. Years rolled by and naught
was heard from her. A few weeks ago
ft hack drove up to the house where
she had spent her youth, and the
Droiteu-bearted father for he had long
ago repented of his harshness saw
with jov his missing child. "Father,"
she said, in sobbing accents, "faiher,
I've been gone a long time, but I've
come home to stay with you and be a
faithful daughter hereafter." The old
man said nothing, bui. the glad light
which beamed from his eyus and the
warmth. of the embrace he gave her
told her she was forgiven. And then
she turned toward the hack and said:
"Come." And lo! six children got out
and came. "These a:-e all tniue, too,
father," she said," and how happy we
will all. be together. And the old
man sat down on the steps and sobbed
like a child. SpringJ'eld Republican,
