From the time a child enters the common school us a pupil until he attains tho coveted di ploma as a graduate of Vale, Harvard or West Point, tho approach of examination day Is look ed upon with. a certain uneasiness that amounts to absolute feur lest some classmate outstrip him in the examination and compel him to take a grade below that which, under less exciting clr. cuuiKtances, he would easily have won. The same restless anxiety of which we have spoken was visible in tho countenances of the 22 applicants who, with manly bearing, vied for the position us cadet ut West Point lust week. It was the observation of very many who saw the young men as they entered the examiners' room, that hi gentlemanly bearing and whole some Intelligence, they were us tlneaclussas ever entered u litt. The physical examination was made by Dr. McArthur, and the scholastic examination by Judge Harris, of Morris; Mr. Ashley, of Kendall county; und Lieut. Arthur L. Wngner, of this city. On Wednesday of this week, the committee pronounced their preference for James K. Chap man, of Freedom township, in thi3 county, and he was accordingly recommended for the place. The successful applicant is, in height, about 5 ft. 0 in., well built, hits a very expressive and keen eye, hi short, is the model of a good looking young man. He is twenty-one years of age, and a native of Ln Salle county. For a few years! past he Mis been a shident ut the University of Chicago, (of the class of '77,) and demonstrated during that time his ability und disposition to master any und ull studies hi which he has been engaged. We fully believe that the selection made by the examiners is just, and while we would have liked to see the entire class successful, we ure satisfied that in Mr. (.liapman our congressional district has a representative who will graduate with high honors, who in time of peace will make an estimublo citizen, and, should the bugle call to battle, in time of war, a well skilled and able officer. Griffith A Gibson ttijl have serge Polish gaiters. a full line of 1.00 llund Kxcuraioii, We regret exceedingly that through some mishap we failed to give a notice und a word of encouragement, in our last issue, to the exeur siou given by our excellent brass band on Wed. nesday evening. The band is one of which Ot tawa should be justly proud, and their excursion was tine of which every citizen should be heart ily ashamed. Any resident o'. Ottawa who has heard, for u yeur past, their excellent music and who has witnessed the energy displayed by the band boys in procuring new music and success fully rendering it, will blush to know that less than twenty persons had interest enough in their welfare to join them In a musical moon light excursion on the river. Probably tho next gratuitous catchpenny camivul that lb held the band will again donate Its services ln considera tion of the promise, "we always patronize you when we have a chance." It is simply abomina ble, the way the band was patronized. We trust that the boys will arrange for another boatride and keep a list of their patrons we would like to secure their names as a relic. Boys, hunt for your moimy where you lewt it, and get up auoth er excursion. A good kip boot for three dollars and seventy five cents, at J. Mugaflin's. Kitrlville Kuce. We notice that the Earl Park races are exten sively advertised in this city on W. K. Lecky's Bulletin Boards. The races commence ou the 24 th inst., and continue four days. In connec tion with this, . K. Lccky desires us to say that Agricultural Societies and Horse Fairs wish ing to have bills posted ln Ottawa, can send them to him by mail or otherwise, and they will receive prompt attention. He has erected two very neat Boards at the postolliec, und owns the exclusive right of postingon them. In addition to these he h:w a large number of Boards all over the city. Parties sending bills will please direct them to W. K. Leeky, City Bill Poster, Ofc tawa, 111. Warranted winter wheat Hour, 5.50 per hun dred, at Wood's Eagle Mills. Th Cotinty Fair. During the week prior to the holding of the State Fair in this city, our neighbors in Kendall county will hold their annual county fuir. From correspondence received, we feel justified in al ready announcing their fair a success. The old settlers of Kendull county will hold their re-union at Bristol in connection with the fair, and the C, B. & Q. road will carry passengers ut ex cursion rates. Tl;is w ill ufl'ocd an excellent op portunity for our citizens to pay our neighbors a friendly visit, and view the large pumpkins and 1 ivc-ly girls that grow spontaneously in und ..round Yurkville. Let's all go. On next Monday the La Salle County Teach ers' Institute will begin a week's session in Men. On last Saturday we assumed our favorite character of the "unwashed" and accepted an engagement at the Springs. We foiled, the bath house in full operation and full of bathers. This is an Institution which is in itself worthy of all patronage. The Mineral" water is sup plied in any niiau'.rty, nr.d heated by steam pipes to any temperature desired. The rooms are nicely twted and kept scrupulously clean. To all desiring bh equal :o those taken at the hot springs lu Arkansas, we will say you can get it at the Minerd Spring Bath-house. You can buy baby carriages chuap at Russell's. The side-cut bridge on Main street has been palled up during the week and moved in a very disorganUed condition to the ravine on Illinois avenue. Its place on Main street will be taken in a wetk or two by a new '.run swing bridge, while the old bridge i to be reconstructed and will do service a a bridge acro:s tLe ravine. W. K.

Should Old Acquaintance Ite Forgot? Wo should rcmurk, "nary." But on the con trary would admonish our citizens, old and young, sedate and gay, one and all, yeaeverbody und his friends, that ou Thursday the same will be goue over again. The old song will be sung with new vigor, and the tales of olden times again repeated by our grey haired veterans The old settlers will Jollify. Tho matrons of three sore und ten will, in their second child hood, repeat their experiences when "gals," aud note the changes that have passed. The belles of to-day will flitter nrouud In their "tie-backs," fan their dear Augustuses, and raise aloft their nasal organs In disdain at the old fashioned "grannies." Tho staid and stalwart pioneers will tell again of tho hardships endured, of tho many exciting incidents connected with the cur ly settlement of this county, und repeat the his tory of those days when honesty wus the rule and not the exception. The young Americans of to-day will "chaw terbaekcr," and "go the 'old man' two to one" that tho boys iu those days were "snides" In comparison with the "thoroughbreds" of to-day; will lllrt considerably with the Infat uating "girls of the period," and have a "large and luscious" time generally. The older girls of maidenly proclivities will have their hair combed with faultless precision and wear the same look of sanctimoniousness they wore iu the days long since gone by. They will indeed be the only living type of early his tory, for surely the old maid of Moses's time hn6 found a counterpart in the "single lady" of to day. Tho bachelors (lucky fellows) will each exhibit a front tooth tilled with gold, will each sport a white vest and steel watch guard, and with their hair systematically combed so as to cover the bare-footed pluce upon the crown, will stride about with faultless tread in search of some affinity. The ox cart and two-wheeled gig of the olden time will have rusted hi its scabbard, and, while the old folks totter ubout on goldheaded canes, the rising generation will wheel o'er the boule vards in u covered phaeton and talK waltz and moonlight to their gushing Amorutas. The Dominies of other days, who practiced what they preached, rode a circuit and got a hundred dollars a year for spreading the gospel, will bo supplanted by tho Reverends of to-day who barely escape tumbling off the "rugged edge" on a salary of a cool hundred thousand, and a two months1 summer vacation. The Doctor of "ye olden time," who "Physicked, 6wcat and bled 'em," and who for four "bits" would dish out a pewter spoonfull of blue-mass to cure any of the "ills that flesh is heir to," will be lost to view, but the polished disciple of Esculaplus will bo there, prepared, for the small consideration of 2, to feel the pulse, nnd for an additional V to give three sugar coated pills to uny who may bs a "little off." The "Squire," whose official duties used to be to advise his neighbors to keep clear of law suits, will be represented by the "Shyster'1 of to-day, whoso only aim is to fleece the unfortu- nute of earth aud to be elected to the state legis lature. . ; "Taking the entire sutisfa-.-tion In at a glance," we opine that the assembly will be large and the show complete. Old fashioned pastimes will be a leading feature of the entertainment. The as semblage of honest people will be larger than at any other gathering, and the eatables will be good. In addition to all the other living curios ities, we ("Kom") will be there, clad in the snowy vesture of our purity (ahem), prepared to pencil down the doln's. We shall be pleased to eat dinner with at least a dozen different families and answer questions hi regard to all the early incidents connected with the settlement ol Florida. Hon. Charles Bluncbard will be the main orator but we expect to have much to say. Any maiden lady of uncertain ngc who may want escorts will be promptly Introduced to a widower friend of ours from Livingston county. The object of this will be to convince all that Livingston county has some of thcoW scU(l)eris in the state. Several old ladies will spin on an older wheel and for the uninformed wc will add that this lias (for them) been truthfully called a"wl;ccl of for tune." The bridge will be free, also the spring and wagon roads. Prof. Lansing and everybody will sing in the good oldvfaxhinncd way. Henry Walthcr will supply the "Inner man'1 and all Fniall boys with goodies. The above, of course, refers to the Old Set tlers1 Annual Picnic, to be held ut Hoes's grove in South Ottawa, on next Thursday, the 10th instant. Let everybody go, and if you have any neigh bors, Invite them to attend and view the relics of early days, associate themselves withe cus toms of the past aud present century, and assist In cementing our citizens in a stronger bond of friendship than has ever before existed. Griffith fi Gibson still continue to sell booti and shoes at greetly reduced prices. Messrs. Cameron A McDougal, attorneys in Gedney's block, have followed in the wake of sundry others, und with the assistance of Doe Wilcox have repainted and repapered their of. flee. The workmanship reflects great credit up on Mr. Wilcox, while the present cosy appear ance of the office bus amply repaid the firm foi the outlay necessary to make the improvements. The paper from Osmun fc Hapemau's is of a new style and is pronounced by persons of taste to be perfection. For ladies' 1 rench kid button loots, go to Child & Phipp'.
