Nelson will address the people of Canton on the subject of equal suffrage at the methodist Church next Sunday evening at eight o'oloc':. Mrs. Nelson is a good speaker and it to be hoped that she will meet a large atten dance.* Ralph Beaumont, the great reform lecturer, will be in Canton on Saturday, Oct, 18. and will address the citizens of this county, in his characteristically and forcible mauner, at 2 o'clock in the cause of labor reform the country affords and THE LEADER trusts that the people of Lincoln county will improve this oppor tunity to hear him. Samuel Everett, a prominent farmer of Brooklyn township was in .town yester-. day making arrangements for his sale, to take place on Tuesday, Oot. 21, -1890. Ur Everett's advertisement contains a very complete display of farming utensils, hay, grain, live stock etc., and the farm ers of that section max find it to their int erest to attend this sale. Ur Everett has decided to go to Oregon and will start for that section the 22nd or.23d of this month. Senator Moody spoke at Bedford's Hall Tuesday evening to about 500 people. He occupied about as much time, as he usually does in a political speech, and didn't say any more. His experience in congress has not iih proved his ability as a speaker in the least. He succeeded well in what little he did say, however, in hatching a number of uncalled and in excuseable misrepresentations which THE LEADEK hopes to find space to give some attention next week. 1 j, Prof. Ola Lee, the newly appointed professor to the chair af languages and History at Augustana college, arrived in the city last week and has taken charge of his dutie3 at the college. Prof. Lee is a graduate of Capital University of Columbus, Ohio, in the degree of Alma Mater and has the distinction'of being one of the leading instructors in this country. Augustana college is to be congratulated upon its success in secur ing his services. -Thefpeople of liincoln county ought to attest their appreciation of the excellence of Augustana college by giving it merited support. Frank Leavitt and F. F. Meyer met their appointment in this city Saturday afternoon and received a very large at tendance notwithstanding the rainy weather. The old court house was crowded full to the back doors and some had to sit on the window sills. Each speaker made a strong effort and their speeches were frequently greoted with immense applause. THE LEADER re grets that it cannot review the speeches at some length but as we are unable to do so,this week, we shall pub lish as much of them next week as space will permit, believing that they will be appreciated although coming late. A large amount of good matter has been obliged to be suif ressed ofrom this issue of THE LEADER, owing to the fact that the office has been so badly crowded with job printing that it was absolutely impossible to give anything like the proper attention to the paper. Among other things'it was desired to publish an extensive review of the speeches of Leavitt and Meyer last Satur day, with editorial comment, a complete report of the doiugs of the Norwegian religious gathering here last week. A large amount of local matter has also been thrown out and 'the Beloit and Worthing correspondence, both of which were extra good, are obliged to go where the Woodbine twineth. It, goes very much against an editor's grain to refuse ti.'.ues like job printing, but at ihe'present rate of its coming, either this will have to be done or the paper neglected even worse than it has been. The republicans held their district con vention in this city last Saturday, to nominate a candidate for county com missioner for the second commission for the second commission district of Lincoln county. F. M. Davis presided over the deliberations and grain buyer Waldo acted as secretary. Among the candi dates proposed for the nomination, were John Isackson, Albert Kingsley, John Keen and A. P. Miller. One informal and three formal ballots were taken and Mr. Miller was chosen on the thitd for mal ballot by the 17 votes from Canton City and Canton township. As to the nominee, it is unnecessary to make fnrtiier comment. Bray citizen of the second district knows him as a man un fit for any position of public trust and public honor and it connot be expected that the respectable people of this com munity will support him. The ticket placed in nomination by the recent re publican county convention is bad en ought, bat this addition makes it even worse than it was before. A DOUBLE DOSE OP VENOM. Mr. Baal's Strait bptrtuM with Copperheads—A MaasmM»ii«aa'« Work. Mrs. Mary Root of Mansbury was bitten on her forehead by copper head snake while she was putting a pie on the swing shelf in her cellar, the snake having climbed to the shelf In some way. and lying there coiled, says a Gallon, Ohio, special to the New York Sun, The poison of the snake affeoted Mrs. Root so seriously that for several days she was not expected to live, being. most of the tlmo de lirious. The venom finally succumbed to treatment, and Mrs. Root gradually recovered. About a week after she became able to go about, she went into the yard to hang up clothes, She had her clothespins in a muslin bag. bhe laid the bag on the ground until she was ready to use it. When she thrust her hand into the bag to take out some clothspins her middle finger was seised by something, and instantly ajehook of excruciating pain Hashed from her finger to the shoulder. She quickly drew her finger from the bag, and dtopped Hh* bag on the ground. The instant it struck the ground a oopperhead snake ran out of the bag and hurried away la the grass. Mrs. Root's cries brought aid. to her, but she became blind and de lirious before she could be taken to the house. She is now lying in a precarious state, and Dr. Ball doubts that she will survive this eecond in jection of oopperhead venom into her system while it was still affected by the first charge. The.oopperhead and its mate were found in the high grass not far from where Mrs. Root was bit ten, and both were killed. Two oows and a horse running in the pasture on a farm adjoining the Root place were found dead and much swollen on different days of liast week. The owner believeid that they had been poisoned Dy a hired man he had .discharged, and he started for the justice's office to swear out a warrant for the man's arrest On his way to the justice's the farmer took a short cut through the pasture where the cattle had died. When half way across ne was startled by a shrill rattle, and discovered In a bunch of grass ahead of him the deadlv coil of a massassauqua or marsh rattlesnake. He killed0the poisonous reptile and went no farther. He knew that the massassauqua and not the hired man had killed his oows and horse. ALAS! IT WOULD NOT DRAW. What Boston Maa Did Instead of. a Mastard Plastorw A well-known Boston business man, whose aged father resides in a Cana dian towiv recently sent to the old gentleman a package of prepared mug terd plasters, thinking they would be of use in case of a recurrence of rheu matism. with which he had been alicted. The plasters were thankfully re ceived and immediately thrust into a desk among other odds and ends. One nighU being awakened by an aoute attack of his complaint the old gentleman arose from his bed, and going to the desk, took what he sup posed was a plaster, and, wetting it with water, placed it over the spot in which the pain was located. For a time all was quiet in his chamber. Soon his daughter, occu pying a room in another part of the house, heard him swearing roundly. -Come in here, Annie," he cried.as she looked into the dcor of his room "see if you can get that mustard plas ter off my back it's as coarse as bran, but it don't draw a bit." Annie did as she was bidden and gently removed a square piece of sand paper from his back. No Soil* of Humor, There are various ways of coming to grief, when one attempts telling an other's stories. ••Annie, tell that anecdote Cousin Oliver told the other night please," said a young lady to her sister while they were making a call. When Annie had complied, her sister an nounced. symputhetically, to the company. "You can imagine how funny it was, because Oliver tells a story so well!" Another unfortunate relator of a borrowed tale was a gentleman who ventured to ask an intimate friend, ••Why don't you weara wig?" ••I'd rather .dye," was the answer, and though the pun was an old one it hapDened to be new to the hearer, and greatly amused him—not so much that he did not speedily forget the point That night on returning home, he said to his wife, "Richardson said an awfully good thing this afternoon. I asked him why he didn't wear a wig, and he said he'd rather commit sui cide than do such a thing. Why don't you laugh But then, women haven't any sense of humor, to speak ofP' A Notable Character. Mme. Rattazzi has lived to be al most ae much forgotten as Mme. Recamier er Ninon de l'Enclos. Very few women have enjoyed such unique experiences in life as the daughter of Sir Thomas Wyse and the Princess Lettia Bonaparte, who has been in succession Countess Solms, Mme. Rattazzi (the wife of Victor Em manuel's., premier) and finally Mme. de Riete. Although France has always held the formost place in her affec tions, she has been in turn, bj the acoMent of birth or marriage. English, German. Italian and Spanish. Siaoe 4be death of M. de Riete. a Spanish deputy, she has lived in the greatest retiremenV aUhough, jMuainaUy at least, otfitingtheRevuelnternatlbnale. The announcement that her fourth husband Is to be Senor Castelar, the •curehe ad of Spanish Republicans, has reminded everyb«4y oaoe Bar* of bar existence. BRUIN IN CHURCH. A.Boar That Greatly Disturbed Congre gation. The liast place from which one would expect to hear of a bear invading a church during the divine service would be the city of London, yet it was in the heart of that city, and not in Kamschatka or British Columbia, that such an invasion recently took place. A service was in progress at a Non com for mist chapel in the English cap ital one Sunday morning not long ago. The good pastor had just announced his text "Be not afraid." when & lady In^the congregation uttered a scream and started toward the pulpit looking back toward the door as she did so. The movement attracted the atten lion of the congregation toward th back of the church, and there they saw a large bear taking a seat in an unoc cupied pew, as if h.e intended to parti cipate in the worship. Notwithstanding the peaceable as pect of the bear, the women and chil dren continued to leave their pews and take refuge around the pulpit as if they expected the minister to defend them, and there was general relief, even among the men, when the pro prietor of the bear, an Italian, en tered the church, bowed respectfully and apologetically, and, attaching a strap to a ring in the bear's nose, led him out It seems tnat the bear, one of the European sort which win coppers for their owners by dancing, had been ac cidentally freed for a moment in front of the church, and had seen the half open door, and entered. It is possible that he had been attracted by the sound of the hymn the congregation had just sung, for many bears are known to be fond of music. HEARING HIS HEART BEAT. Qnoor Panelos That nil the Mind of a Qusor Man. "What a strange feeling it is to lie awake at night and listen to your heart" said a somewhat imaginative Detroit gentleman the other day. "1 do not know how it affects other people, but with me the sensation, especially on a still night, is one that stirs me to the strangest emotions. I catch myself wondering as I listen to the steady thump, thump, thump of the tireless organ, wondering. I say, what would happ.n should the mes senger of life suddenly cease to per* fortn its functions. In an instant I would be in the realms of the un known, a pilgrim to the country from whence no man has yet returned. Then, again, I fancy that my father is a soldier, tapping away the drum beats of life. And 1 am sometimes forcibly reminded of a beautiful tier man lyric poem that pictures the heart as a carpenter, and its beats the nails the grim worker is pounding: in our coffin. Well, perhaps, but just try yourself on a still night as you lie awake in bed, then judge for yourself. Tho Koj to Housekeeping, The Germans have a story which the home-loving people love to repeat A father, when bis daughter becomes a bride, gives her a golden casket with the injunction not to pass it into other hands, for it held a charm which in her keeping would be of inestimable value to her as the mistress of a house. Not onlv was she to have the entire care of it, but she was to take it every morn ing to the cellar, the kitchen, the dining-room, the library, the bedroom, and to remain with it in each place for live minutes, looking carefully about After tho lapse of three years, the father was to send the key, that the secret talisman might be revealed. The key was sent. The casket was opened. It was found to contain an old parchment on which were written Lhese words: "The eyes of the mis tress are worth one hundred pairs of servants' 'hands." The wise father .new that a practice of inspection fol lowed faithfully for three years would become a habit and be self-perpetu ated—that the golden casket and the hidden charm would have accom plished their mission.
