The injury was so great that the animal will not be entered, Forladids', men's and children's shoes go to the Boston. A number of the creditors of L. Tift tear that he has fled the country leaving them to financially mourr his loss. He was quite an energetic fellow and by his activity had accumulated considerable prop erty, which in the opinion of many would have been sufficient to have met all his obligations. The passenger department of the Union Pacific has issued a very prettr hanger descriptive of the Irrigation Fair.

Bill Green claimed here that he was not the nominee of the demo cratic party party and did not stand squarely upon the Chicago platform, but was the populist nominee.

It is said -that four counties were represented by exactly four teen delegates from the "Big Sixth" district composed of about forty counties. For dress goods, the latest novelties, go to the Boston Store. The entertainment at the opera house Wednesday evening by the ladies of the Irrigation Fair was quite well attended. The pro gramme, consisting of vocal and in strumental music, recitations and tableaux, was pleasingly rendered and received with satisfaction by the audience. Following the pro gramme dancing was held and en joyed by those who delight in the whirl of the the- waltz. Refresh ments were served during the even ing. The receipts were about $40. W. B. Risse who made the race for county attorney here in 1887 upon the democratic ticket has re cently written a letter to Geo. E. French in which he says: "I am a sound money democrat, opposed to Bryan as well as Altgeld. Am elector (presidential) for the fif teenth district on the Palmer ticket and will get into active campaign soon, and it there is anything on earth I can do to down Bryan and Altgeld I'll do it. We don't want any Mexican money in ours." This is indicative of the drift of the Ger man democratic vote in Illinois as well as elsewhere.
