of Nashua, has returned to her home

—We don't want to buy at^our place,
we wont trade there any inoiv, you'll
be sorry when you see ub going to some
other store. You can't sell us any stale
goods, we have opened wide our eye?,
we don't want to trade at your store,
'cause you do not advertise.—Ex.
—The following from the Strawberry
Point Mall-l'ress will be of interest to
John H. Cameron's mauy friends in this
city: "John 11. Comeron was recently
united in marriage at Livingstone,Ken
tucky, with Miss Edna M. ueliauro, a
daughter of one of Springlleld's, Mo.,
business men. Tne groom has many
friends in this city, who extend con
gratulations. We understand that the
newly wedded pair will make thoir
borne in Kentucky.
—This actually happened, according
to one veracious South Dakota paper:
Rubber often leaves a wrong impres
sion. A gentleman walking down the
street the other day passed a lady car
rying a pretty baby its beauty attracted
his attention and be naturally turned to
get a last glimpse of the baby when the
mother screeched "rubber." Finding
himself so beaten he politely tipped his
hat and remarked: "l'ardon me I
thought it was a real baby."
—Pierpont Signal: Lanpford, it is
said, has three of the stingiest men on

Qucb water as he wants unless it comes
Trom a neighbor's well. The second

write anything but a small hand as it is
waste of paper to make large letters.
I The stops the clock at night to
the tear the machin
ery. All of them to take a news
paper on the ground that it is such a
strain on the spectacles to read.
—Under date of Dec. 30tb, James 1'.
Ball, of Delaware, who with his wife is
spending the winter at Hammond, La.,
writes us, "this Is a bright Bunny morn
ing after our snow Btorm. The 28th It
snowed from 8 to 9 inches, which was a
surprise to the natives. It haB been
very cold here for this country, and all
the garden stult' has been killed So it
seems it wbb not the beat, but the se
vere cold weather, that caused friend
Sherwood to pack his baggage, aban
don Hammond, and go to Florida. A.
M., honor bright now, how is the weath
er down in the X'eninsular state?
—It Is interesting to watch ourselves
and others and see human "nature"
turn up so promiscuously now and
then. A paper will say nice things
about a man to a fare you well, and he
takes It as his just due. If that same
paper makes a slight criticism of this
particular man, be is is apt to go into
the air, and talk about dams and things
|f of that discription In connection with
the paper. And the editor is cut oil
the same piece of stuff. For instance
his laundry may be as line aB silk for a
long period, and then when be gets a
saw edge under hie chin he will kick
just as we did in a resent Ibbuc. Queer,
isn't itV—Oelwein Register.
—A newspaper is a funny thing—it's
a kind of a charitable institution estab
lished for the benefit of the people. The
editor don't need any sympathy or mon
ey or biscuits. He can have an Intel
I: lectual feast everytime he gets hungry,
.-s In the winter he can make his paper
red hot. He can tell the truth and be
horse whipped or lie and not be thank
ed. He can't make a mistake—he is in
fallible. His clothes don't wear out
be needB only one suit. He must pub
lish everything good that has your
lame connected with it, and suppress
be bad. He must tell your side of the
story. Ife must tell what a line horse
you have and not mention the balking.
When you have taken the paper live
years without paying for it, thank bim,
»nd have it stopped, God lovetb acheer
'ul giver.—Ex.
