At the Jamieton Opening.
Evory body was there?that is to say ali
the feminine world, and they were re
warded for exerting themselves on one
of the warmest of the past ten or twelve
record-breaking days. It was rather
hard on last Wednesday to realize that
one would ever need cold weather ap
parel but on entering the Jamleson
store one Immediately found new rea
sons for desiring a descent of the mer
cury. Tho store was beautifully draped,
the goods displayed to every ad
vantage and it was easy to find dresses
to one's taste and every condition of the
pocket book. Some of the novelties In
urcBS patterns were especially pretty
and the very now goods, Mohair in all
colors, were in evidence. Going on baok
to the millinery department, a rather
difficult achievement with such a lot of
exquisite things to draw one's atten
tion, tho hats proved beautiful beyond
oven anything which the experience of
past seasons would warrant one to ex
pect. They wero in numerous combina
tions and in tho main were large
though here and there was a simply
irres ist alibi bit of velvet and jet labelled
bonnot. Mre. W. A. W barton nee Miss

Editoh Advertisbr:?In the report of
tho proceedings of the Constitutional
Convention on last Thursday (Friday's
paper) during tin diBCUssion upon the
article on Municipal Corporations and
Police Regulations, I noticed the follow
ing: "License (or privilege taxes) im
posed shall be graduated so as to secure
a just imposition of such tax upon the
chn?os subject thereto. Mr. Sheppard
moved to strike out the last sentenco of
the section. Tabled on motion of Mr.
Clayton, who said the pentence was in
ttuded to prevent discrimination such
as prevails in Laurcns, where a man
Worth $150,000 pays the samo license as
his neighbor who has not a dollar."?
That our town labors under such on un
enviable system, is news to me.?
Perhaps there is somo mistake, but the
statement has gone out. If you are
familiar with the ordinances upon this
point please give us the facts as they
are, nnd bo assist in setting us right be

An Ideal October Magazine.
Lincoln's apprehensive distrust of
marriage is rovoaled in some extromely
interesting letters from tho groat
President in tho October Ladies Homo
Journal, in which John Gilmer Speed
discusses "Lincoln's Hesitancy to Mar

for tho first time, and are addrosed to
Lincoln's most intimate friond, John
Speed. Edward 8. Martin presents a
review of tho various theories ad
vanced by scientists in the effort to do
finitely locate the Garden of Eden site,
and shows how far from solution is the
problem. Dr. Parkhurst's 'October
article treats of "Rollglon in the Fami

and more for your benefit than our own (because we would have
sold our share at the larger profit) we brought the price of School
Books to what they ought to have been long before. We cheapen

not because some one else forced our prices down. The moral will
strike you when you think rt over?We are very apt to have what
