And I watched the streamlet glistening ' ; .
As entranced, I there was listening,

Where no rays of sun were shining,

"'Tis surely naught to me what you propose,1' '

With enthusiastic fire,
"You'll save your cash by wearing Palace Clothes."

The Logan Guard ct Honor met on
Saturday eveniug and made further ar
ragements for the special service which
they design holding at General Logan's
tomb on Decoration day. It is very prob
able that 5 p. m. will be the hour selected
so that those who attend the services at
Arlington will have a chance to witness
the Logan ceremonies also. A committee
of ten ladies, Mrs. F. V. Tallmadge,
chairman, was appointed to take charge
of the flowers. A special badge for mem
bers of the guard will be manufactured.
A committee on programme was appoint
ed. Dr. John P. Newman sent an invit
ation to the Guard, requesting their pres
ence at Metropolitan church on Sunday
evening, May 29, when special services
will bo held. The Commander-in-Chief
was notified as to the proposed special
service and comrades throughout the
country were invited to send floral tributes
Armour & Co. have consented to store all
flowers received by the committee.
Berg's Cherry Cough Syrup
' "Will relieve that cough almost instantly
and make expectoration easy. Acts
simultaneously on the bowels, kidneys and
liver, thereby relieving the lungs of that
soreness and pain and also stopping that
tickling sensation in the throat by remov
ing the cause. One trial of it will con
vince any one that it has no equal on
earth for coughs and cold. A. F. Streitz
has secured the sale of it and will guar
antee every bottle to give satisfaction.
New Yoke, May 14. The Times speci
al from Ottawa, Ontario, says that the
Government has decided to expend $G0,
000 more than last year in tha way of
coast defences as well as average at an
early date for a large supply of the rifles
and three pound Nordenfeidt guns which
will he placed in position along the At
lantic and Pacific, as well as different
poiuts along the coatt. Only a few days
ago the English government forwarded
three heavy cannons to British Columbia
to be stationed at Fort Moody, and several
others are to he placed at different points
along the Pacific coast. It is not at all
unlikely that at an early day a regiment
of English soldiers will be dispatched for
regular service in British Columbia.
Nov Has Faith.
I had been troubled all winter with
cold and pain in the chest and got no
relief from remedies recommended by
Druggists and Physicians. At the same
time I was advertising Dr. Bosanko's
Cough and Lung Syrup. I had little
faith, but thought to try it as a last resort,
now I believe even more than they tell
me of its curative qualities. From tho

If there ever was a humbugged and
badly taken in American people it is that
class of fools who flock to see the elon
gated Sarah Bernhardt. There are at
least a dozen American actresses who
can discount this foreign upstart, who
possesses neither reason, natural beauty
nor talent to any particulor degree.
Sarah held fortli at Omaha on Saturday
night, and the wise people of that city did
uot care to see or hear her. The result
was a small audience at which Sarah gave
an exhibition of her wretched judgment
and worse intelligence by ranting and
acting the fool, forgetting that those who
had ventured to the theatre went in good
faith and were entitled to just as good an
entertainment as the company could bring
out.

Building in Chicago comes to a stand
still yesterday morning, and there are
probably from 13,000 to 20,000 men idle.
Part of these had no work to do, owing
to the order of the Master Mason's Asso
ciation to quit work Friday night. Others
bricklayers, stone masons and plasterers
quit work on the non-association jobs
to ascertain what their meeting at the
Battery would do. A large number of
men just on the outskirts of these trades
teamsters, hod-carriers, carpenters
were also obliged to quit. Nearby every
body recognized that there was a, chance
of a long, hard fight, and, from the various
conditions, that it was greatly a question
of endurance who would win, though
both "sides still appeared confident of
success. The contractors and material
men want the strike over, but not until
they can have all their demands allowed
without fear of au interference for a
year.

years with disease of the throat and lungs,

The town board has taken steps to
cause tho construction of water works
in Ord, as will be seen by the minutes of
their last meetings published elsewhere.
It is needless to say that such a move is
an eminently proper one at this time.
Ord has attained a size which warrants
the procurance of the best water facilities
and the certain growth before it will mako
i them all the more necessary as the months
go by. The proximity cf the hill in the
southwest part of town renders a stand
pipe unnecessary in other words we
have a stand-pipe built by nature which
can neither burst nor blow down. The

of the highest building and will afford

Loxdox, May 14. London was ablaze
with exitement this afternoon, the occa
sion being the visit of the Queen for the
purpose of opening the People's Palace
at Mile End. The route selected for the
royal progress extends from Paddington
station in the western portion of London
to Mile End, at the extreme eastern limit,
a distance of about eight miles. After
leaving the station the line of parade de
flected southest a short distance to the
marble arch of Hyde Park ; thence it lies
in almost straight line to its termination
and was through tho longest stretch of
busy and crowded thoroughfares existing
anywhere in the world, perhaps, taking in
as it does Oxford street, Holborn, Hol
born Viaduct, Newgate street, Cheapside
Corn Hill road. Aldgate 6treet, White
chapel road and Mile End road. The
buildings along the entire way were gaily
decorated with banners, wreaths, colored
trophies, and flags, the Irish colors, and
the stars and stripes being conspicuous
in many places. The Lord Mayor and
the municipal officers of the city of Lon
don went in carriages from the Mansion
House to the city s boundary line at Hol

Girls look pretty on horseback, and we
love to see them. We popped tho ques
tion to the lady we now board with while
we were'gayly cantering sido by side
long ago. She jumped at the chances
and we've been jogging on together ever
since. In a town like ours, where horseu
are plenty and other outdoor Mmusement
not very numerous, we think all the girls
should be encouraged to become accom
plished equestriennes. Let young girls

skillet and a hot flat iron. Wnen time

Red Cloud, Neb,, May 14. A hotly-

The Ilastiugs Independent utters truth
in the following: "Nowspapers owned by
corporations maybe afraid the working
men will turn out anarchists, but journals
of sense havo the confidence in the sturdy
loyal character of the men who are poor
and have to labor. Take it in the late
war and the lorger part of the fighting
was done by tho laboring men or their
sons. The poor people never yet ruined
a nation or a state."

A peculiar blunder occurred in the

"trust" spelled "trast". Where the word
appears in other places on tho certificate
it is spelled properly.
