An Illinois subscriber writes us to
change his postofiice address from

We are pleased to announce that the
social held by the ladies of the M. E.

A great hue and cry is being raised
in some cities and towns , in effect that ,
the "progressive euchre craze" is as
great a nuisance as the baneful skating

amusementsin the hands of such peo
ple , become first water nuisances.

As an indication of the alarming ex

ating game of "draw" ' $500 poorer than
when he entered. While many others

Our highly respected contemporane
ous publication across the way , as a
jright and burning exemplification of
consistency , excites wide-spread admira

: ency of the postoffice , while Mr. Thomp
son , a dyed-in-the-wool bourbon , inter
ests himself in the same behalf , by
making inquiries at Joliet concerning
Alonzo's past record. There is a trifle
too much of the "good Lord , good dev-
1 , " in such proceedings for intelligent
jcople to stomach. There must be a
naho any-hued gentleman of mastodon-
c proportions somewhere in the Demo
crat's wood pile.

f we do not discontinue our flattering
attentions to him. We don't speak as

The art lecture , "The Wit and Wis
dom of the Crayon , ' ' delivered by Prof.
French of the Chicago School of Art at
< hc Opera Hall , Tuesday evening was a
rare treat and heartily enjoyedby the
small audience which turned out to
greet him. The Professor as a lecturer
s engaging and pleasing , andhandled
lis subject admirably and gracefully :
while his sketching was executed with
the utmost ease and dexterity , and at
the same time with remarkable accura
cy. We regret it deeply indeed that so
very few were present at an entertain
ment of such great merit , considered
) oth from a literary as well as an artis
tic point of view. On accounc of the
nfluence small audiences naturally ex
ercise on lecturers , and more particu-
arly on Prof. Webster's account , who
'eels somewhat discouraged and who is
a heavy financial loser thereby.

The working men of this city should
not forget that one of their number a
sober , honest mechanic was refused
work on an ice house recently built by
one of our saloon men , because he was
a temperance man. The man in ques
tion was employed by a contractor to as
sist in building the ice house ; but , at
the dictation of the parties having the
ce house built , the contractor found it
necessary to inform the mechanic that
ic could not work on that building ,
[ his is indeed canning the matter as
'ar as has ever come under our observa-
ion. Our advice to working men isbe
sober , and although you may lose a job
hereby occasionally , at the end of the
year you will be allthe better off. Be
ober , and your family as well as your-
elf , will be happier , better housed , bet-
er fed. healthier and improved in body

Supt. A. Campbell and other officials
of the B. & M. have issued a circular to
the employes of their road calling atten
tion to the "Protective Association of
the C. B. & Q. railroad company. " The
document states : The policies paid run
from $870 to $072 , and for the year
1S85 there have been nine assessments
of one dollar each on account of deaths ,
and fifty cents for expenses , making
a good reliable insurance of nearly
$1,000 for between nine and ten dol
lars per annum. This is an insurance
on life whether death result from acci
dent or from natural causes. The rail
road profession being a hazardous one
causes insurance companies to either
refuse to insure men in certain branch
es of it , or place the taxes so high that
the average railroad man cannot afford
to insure his life for the protection of
his family in case that death does over
take him , but this association places it
within the reach of all. It costs but $2
to join , one of which goes to the ex
pense fund of the association , and the
other'towards paying the first death
policy after joining.

Last Sunday , as the beautiful orb of
day was fast retiring behind the western
horizon , denoting the peaceful approach
of eventide , the soul of Will Dolan went
forth from its earthly tenement to meet
its Creator , amidst scenes and circum
stances peculiarly sorrowful and dis
tressing. A young man was he of ex
cellent business qualifications , of gen
erous impulses and great , kind hearted.
One who naturally attracted friends un
to him and as easily retained-them. But
unfortunately , the deceased was period
ically addicted to drink , which he was
unable to resist by his own greatest ef
forts and the assistance of willing
Friends. And at last , with great and
unexpected suddenness , the grim mon
ster stepped in and with mortal instru
ments exacted the last tribute his life.
But few knew of his illness , which was
of short duration , and the announcement
of his death created universal surprise
and sorrow. Ilis remains were remov
ed to Indianola , Monday , and interred
in the Catholic cemetery there.

A TRIBUNE representative dropped
into the Metropolitan Drug Store , this
morning , to see the handsome and ex
tensive line of Holiday Goods on which
he had heard so much comment. He
found a regular emporium of toys for
everybody , dolls in wax. china , and rub
ber , destructible and indestructible , big
and little. An endless variety of tin
and china ware , suitable presents for
old and young. The finest lot of toilet
cases , albums , picture frames , hanging
lamps , etc. , in the city are here display
ed in great profusion and at such reas
onable figures that an elegant present
is within the reach of all. If 3-011 wish
to remember the children , parents ,
don't fail to see the display at the Met
ropolitan Drug Store , for there you will
be able to find just what you want , from
a five cent toy to an elegant and costly
toilet case or album.
A notorious character by the name of
"Doc. " Way , occasioned great excite
ment in South MeCook , last night , by
shooting at Karney's dog. The neigh-
borhoDd turned out en masse after the
shootist , and after a lengthy chase and
some blows the offender was finally cor-
alled in the rear of Dr. Davis' officcheld ,
in durance vile until this morning , when ,
no one appearing against him , he was
discharged from custody. The ' 'doctor' '
took a trip west , on 39 this noon , for
his health. We observe that the South
McCookitcs have adopted the shot gun
policy with good effect.
Yesterday , the old postofiice building ,
and lot upon which it is situated , passed
into the hands of J. F. Ganschow by
purchase. Upon inquiring as to the
consideration , Tom informed us that he

his debts any how. Mr. G. will repair
and repaint the building , and shortly
stock the same with a full line of boots
and shoes , and run it in connection
with his West Dennison street store.
Courier : Mrs. Wood , mother of the
notorious rogue , Frank Wood , who is
now under bonds to appear at the next
term of district court , died broken-heart
ed at the residence of W. E.Windhurst ,
last Saturday. The frequent manouv-
erings of her unnatural offspring were
too much for her'ro bear , and she has
gone to her home which mortals can
never take from her.
