One of the most re!..ari:al;la Cutis of
ppiii'ic human mnuir.a of vhich we
have i'.ny record was thi.t made ut Paler
' mo. Jvcily, in the year !10, when an en

was unearthed by some marble qnarry
I tnen. Thes-" i)i;i:u:i.;h remains mens-
nred exactly :4 feet from head to foot,

broad and 9 inches throngh in the thick

attached to the relic informs the visitor
that it weighs Xii. pounds, but the general
verdict is that it could not weigh over
30 or 35 pounds.

A Safe. InveKtiiM-iit.
The new issue of Rock Island
school district bonds merits the con
sideration of all who have $100, or
upward, that they mav wish to in
vest. The bonds run for five years and
draw 5 per cent. The interest is
payable semi-annually, and is always
ready when due.
The investment is absolutely safe,
and the security is never elTected by
panics. The desira'ole character of the in
vestment should cause the entire is
sue to be taken at home, and a
prompt response from our citizens is
invited. Apply to J. F. Robinson,
treasurer, or S. S. Kemble, superin
tendent, or to the undersigned.

Is there not suiu ...ilug perverse and
contrary to nature i.bout having toasls
at temperance bn.sieis i:::.i drinking
tin in i-i water o .i of oblou.? Water is
umpiesaonably the bttt tlriuk in the
world, but not for toasts. It is right
and pr- per that our temperance friends
shouid eat together and that their souls
should Cow, but they ought to get up a
new apparatus fr the exploitation of
their after dai:n r remarks. The live ry

The Itnok of the Fair,"
By Hubert Howe Bancroft, the cele
brated historian of the Pacific slope,
is the most elaborate attempt that
has yet been made or probably will
be made to put in permanent form
a comprehensive record of t he World's
Columbian exposition. It is to be is
sued in 25 parts of 40 pages each and
when completed will form a mairmh-
cent volume of 1,000 imperial folio
pages, 12x16 inches in size. As re-
"anls literary style and accuracy the
author s name is a sufficient guaran
tee. In paper, typography and illus
tration the work is beyond criticism.
This is no catch-penny affair, but en
tirely what it purports to be a work
worthy of the great exposition it
commemorates. It is published by
t lie liancrott company, of t lncago,
and the second part has just been is

for the complete work, or $1 for each
