"Twas an evening In the winter Anil the ground with snow wan w hite. And the merry slrigliliells tinkled. While the moon shed out her light, That a traveler cold and weary Stepping from a railroad car taught upon the air a fragrance Wafted to htm from afar. In an Instant all his sorrow, All his aches ami pains and rhills Vanished, as he cried in gladness "Now my heart with gladness thrills; am main to drink t'lark'a Cofteea, Kor I know their odor well. And some enterprising merchant Has Clark's famous goods to sell. Down the street with happy footstep. And his face grown full of Joy, On he went to trace that frairrance That he might his thirst alloy. When at last he found the merchant In his neat and well stocked store, Down he sat ami told a story Which had oft been told before, Told the story of a people Id a city of the west, Where laud flows with milk and honey, Aud w hose tastes are all the best. They who have the finest coffee That the world has ever known And appreciate the blessings Which this wondroUB drluk has Bowl. 1mg he spoke, and yet his heirers Sat in wonder while he told Of the merits of the coffee Which that happy merchant sold; Ttll at last so Ailed with gladness Was that happy merchant there. That he cried, "Oh, friendly stranger. Long I'll sell this drink so rare.' "Bert of coffees, how I sell It, fcnch deniand I've never known. And such perfect satisfaction From Its use has ever grow n." So the traveler worn anil weary Found at last sweet rest from care. And the story of Clark's Coffee Wins hlni kindness everywhere. We would ask yon, gentle reader. Do you want to nse the best ? Do you think that old, stale coffi fakes a drink which brings you rest? Do not ose stale package coffee.

'They are figuring on big jobs In Iowa aud other adjoin ing states, and just now are rushing things in the factory, getting out work for the new asylum buildings at Rankukec. The Nine Cent Store are evidently determ- ined to catch the people with bargains. One cent for ladies' hose that are worth ten will insure a big crowd on Monday morning. Amusements. S. H. Barrett A Co.'s circus on Tuesday drew large crowds, as circuses always do. The animal part of the show was as good as the average, and the circus considerably bet ter. It was one of the genuine old fashioned kind, even to the clowns. With one ring, aud i great many interesting und daring perform ances, the audience enjoyed the show hugely. MIN9TRILS. On Tuesday evening next, June 10th, Leon & Cushman's Minstrel Company occupy the Opera House. This seems to lie the first sign eparture from the oldjnld rut of minstrel' sy. The bill is "Sarah Barnum'a Dilemma", a satire on negro life, Including in the piece a burlesque, "Ill-fed. Dora." It promises no end of fun. "Tne only Leon", of course, plays Sarah Bamum.

Fourth of July, A movement was inaugurated yesterday by F. L. Fiske, L. W. Hess and others which will undoubtedly dcvclope into a first class Fourth of July celebration for Ottawa. This is a movement in the right direction and every wide awake, enterprising citizen should contribute his part toward making the celebration a success. There can be no lack of means all that is required is to push it strongly. In this connection it is hoped that Ottawa Commandery will reconsider Its intention to visit Joliet on that day aud remain at home, adding thereby largely to the interest of the occasion. A well drilled Chicago military company have expressed a desire to visit Ottawa on the Fourth, aud they and others will probably be invited. An executive committee, of whom Mayor Allen will bo chairman, will probably call up on the merchants soon for funds, and under whose supervision the expenditures will be made. Among the features of interest proposed is a prize of one or two hundred dollars to the largest township delegation outside of Ottawa who will take part in the procession. This will be an Incentive to some church, Sunday school, or other township organization to compete for the prize and replenish a deple ted treasury. Other prizes ore suggested, but the whole programme has not been determined upon. The Fhee Tkahf.k will give it in full next week. . - Have you seen the clothing on exhibition at Oak Hull Don't miss it.

Bloominutov. III. Muh. Dk. Kkck Dear Madam: For ttie benefit of the atllicted I deem it my duty to make the following statement in reference to my son Morris F. Johnson. From tho time he was two years of age he has been atllicted with catarrh in the head, causlnir almost con- stunt discharge from the ears. I applied to several physicians for treatment, but they all said nothing could be done for his relief. The only hope was that he would outgrow it. About one year ago lie took a violent cold, se riously affecting his lutitrs, his hcarini; in ono ear being almost entirely gone, and constant discharge from both ears. As a last resort, in last June I applied to you for treatment, hav ing but little hone of benefiting his bearing or general heulth. lam happy now to state iinii me aisciiarge rrom ins ears lias entirely ceased, his hearing as good as ever it was, his health greatly improved, having gained twen ty five pounds in the last six mouths. You ciin getjfui'ther information by calling on or addressing me at til'.t Main street. Kespectrully, n. r . Johnson. Dr. Mrs. Keck will visit Ottawa June 11th to the 14th.
