Yesterday's little thaw started thing
to running nicely and before evening
cave fcleighing a tired anil worn-oat ap
pearance. As bad beeo feared, flat
roof buildings suffered more or lee
from the effects of the sudd q break-up
and there was some lively bustling done
in different pans of the city yesterdav
afternoon when roofs began to show
signs of leaking. The warm-up also
t&rted water pipes to breaking arc!
plumbers are as busy as World's fair
contractors these days, keeping up to
The Bururd Block.
The fiat tin roof on the Buford build
ing at the corner of Second avenue and
Seventeenth street began leaking yester
day afternoon and fl ioded the four floor
below. The wtter ran tL rough the two
top floors down into the offl -e of tti
Vo'.k-Zeitung where it did considerable
damage and also flooded the rear portion
of Kingsburv's Fair store below where it
damaged toys and stock to some x'ent.
The latter store also suffered a loss on
Sa'urday night from the from windows
being flooded by water fr.im the story
ab ve where the water :n one of the
offices hhd been kf' running. The build
ing is unlucky in this respect as it was
only a week ago that .Too.? B"Rr & Co.
suffered a considerable 1;89 from water
damaging their ch 'thing sock.
M. Lee Gait Flooded.
It was otily a few weeks ago that a
timely discovery prevented a bad fire at
M. Lee Cult's stationery store. On Sat
urday nigh', about 12 o'clock, a passer
by beard water dripping down in ibi
store and Mr. GaU'was hustled out, to
And that the bursting of. a water pipe i l
the story aboye bad flooded the floor and
the water was pouring down through the
ceiling into the rear portion of bis store
The stock in that part was gotten out of
tbe way and after some effort the water
was shut off in the basement, but not be
fore it had soaked the ceiling and aid 3
walls in the back Dart of the store. Mr.
Quit's loss wi.l not be much, but too
plastering will probably have to be re
placed and other d in ige repaired. Lj
can't help thinking that somebody baa a
hoodoo spell hunting over him.
Other F.n'cctg of theTliaw.
The Dart building, occupied by tbe
Stewart hardware business, did not show
the tffesl o: the roof, but the immense
amount ot wa'.T pouring oT the tup. ran
into tbe cellar and did some damage to
stock stored therein. Gnher cellars
along Second avenue have begun to fill
with water, while n pons from all parts
of the city show the effects of tbe thaw
on the roof-) and cellars.
Were Held as Saapeets Together.
An interesting incident occurred in the
rotunda of tbe Lincoln bouse at Lincoln,
Neb., in which tbe former tri city
townsman, Hon. M. V. Gannon was quite
pleasantly surprised It seems that Mr
Gannon, who is now president of the
Irish Natioaal L-aguK. was talking with
a few friends when a gvotlnmao who bad
been intently ngtr'ing him for some
time stepped up and touched him on the
shoulder, aektd if be rcr.eaibered him.
Mr. Gannon could not recall ever Laving
seen him before, aud tbe stranger laugh

that I occupied tbe next cell to you is

You are not D. B. Condon?" re
marked Ganuon :.n amazement, as be ret

A LIQUOR LABEL.
A Poetic Sentiment Originally Addressed
toa Davenport Citizen.
''Look here," remarked a well-known
Davenporter Saturday, as be held out a
bottle of fine-looking old whiskey in the
original package. His remark was ad
dressed to the Democrat scribe, and the
latter looked as he was bid. There was
no invitation to "smile " Attention was
simoly called to tbe bottle on account of
the label, which tbe newspaper man was
invited to read. It bre tbe following
is the most wonderful whiskey
that ever drove tbe skeleton from a feast
or painted landscapes in tbe braia rt
man. It Is tbe mingled souls cf wheat
and corn. In it you will find tbe sun
shine and the shadow tbat chased each
other over tbe billowy fields; the breath
of June; the carol ef tbe lark; the dews
of night; the wealth of summer and
autumn's rich content, all golden with
imprisoned light. Drink it and you will
hear the v ices of men and maidens sing
tbe "Harvest Home," mingled with the
Uutrhterof children. Drink it and you
will feel within your blood the starlit
dawns, the dreimy. tawny dusks of
many perfect days. For many years
this liquid joy has been within the happy
staves of oak, longing to touch the lips
There was a sound of familiarity in the
lines and thn light broke on the scribe's
mystified countenance. Those words
had been previously published in the
Democrat as part of a letter that accom
panied a jug of "the best" that was pre
sented to the late George H . French of
that city by Rbert J. Ingersoll. In
some maaner a copy of tbe Democrat
containing this letter, which wai pub
lished at the time the gift was received,
must have fallen into the hands ot a Cin
cinnati liquor house, which has engrafted
the sentiment onto its labels.
The Farmer'" Match.
The articles have been signed by Billy
Gibson and T. G. Hanson in the sporting
department of the Chicago Herald for
the match ef "Farmer" Burns against aa
anknown. The match Is for $ 1,000 a
side and is to take place within 60 days.
Tbe place for the match has not yet been
decided upon, but will probably come off
before some athletic club or else in Chi
cago The name of the unknown is to
be made public 15 days frm the date of
the signing'of the articles, or now about
10 days hence. The local backers of
Burns will not say who they think the
unknown is, but of course have their own
ideas as to who he will turn out to be.
They state, however, that whoever he is
they are confident tbat he will have no
walk-away in any event

The Season of Self Denial Which Begins
The L-nten season begins Wednesday,
which is Ash Wednesday. Today is Collop
Monday, so called btcause the ancients
had a cus'ena on thi9 day of cutting beef
into collops orehreds and hanging it up to

Shrove Tuesday, when all sinners are
supposed to confess their transgressions
and seek for absolution. Everybody has

Lent is a moveable fest, depending on
the phases of the moon. This fact alone
proves its heathen origin. The word
Lent in its origin means spring and the
Lemen tide is but another expression for
spring tide. Lent is derived from tbe
Anglo-Saxon "lencten," to grow longer,
signifying that the diys are lengthening
and the spring time drawing near.
Tbe ancient Persians end almost every
other nation of antiquity celebrated a
similar fast of 40 days' duration. Ah

first heard of during the time of Pope
But, be tbe origin of tbe Lenten sesson
what it may, the practices which it incul
cates are beneficial. Self denial and self
control are mostly manly virtues in them
selves. And if th -y be exerted in tbe
direction of judiciously curtailing the
amount and the kind of food eatec the
result will be in most cases, an improve
