Sxtt OTTAWA, ILL., SATURDAY, A1MUL 23, 1687. NO. 41. VOL 48. WE LIFE TO PLEASE. The measure of life being but a f pan, We should enjoy it while we can j To accomplish this no better way Than live with all in harmony. Kach should endeavor each to please, Which can be done with greatest ease. It only needs to lay aside Self, that would our reason guide. To please has been our life's desire ; We toil for it, but never tire; And passing years suggest new ways By which we may the people please. For our last effort in this way, Termit us here a word to say, And introduce you, if you choose, To our unequalled ttock of thots. There's nothing like ii in the land, And prices what the times demand, Besides in comfort, case and wear, You'll find perfection every pair. A. LYNCH. TO ADMIRERSOFFINE HORSES.

The attention of the circuit conrt has been occupied the most of the time this week with the Clayton will case. Mr. Wil liam Clayton was the owner of the cele brated Deer Tark, about twelve miles west of Ottawa. He was an eccentric old gentle man, and died about two years ago, leaving a property of some $ 100,000, to be divided in accordance with the provisions of his will. The will, as is apt to be, was partial, the slighted heirs claim it was unjust, made when Mr. Claytou was not fit to transact business, and the present mil is to set aside the will and ohtain an equal division of the The evidence was all taken and the depo sitions were all furnished by Thursdoy night.

Of course, everybody claims to sell goods cheaper than his neighbor, but the truth is that John Fecny, Madison street, is the only boot and shoe store In the city that does ac tually do this; and there is not an article In his store but can be bought for at least 50c a pair lower fur the same grade of goods than at nny other store in the city. This fact can be verified by any one who will accept his invitation to call and examine his stock and prices. Think of it : f 2.o0 shoes for $2.00; $3 00 for $2.50; $3.60 sliocs for $3.00, and so on through the list. Isn't this worth saving these times? Try it and see how you like it.

The ItiiHlnrits Men. The meeting of the Business Men's Asso ciation at the court house Thursday evening was called to order by Tresident Catlin al 8:10. Trcsent, 33 members. Enoughtuore, however, dropped in during the evening to raise the number to over sixty. Tresident Catlin stated that the object of the meeting was to consider the proposition of the West ern Cottage Organ Company. J. E. Torter, chairman of the committee, reported that the company would cotno here for $20,000 and five acres of land j that they employe 1 100 men j would erect a shop three stories high and 10x300 feet ; that the five owners would erect each a fine dwelling. He thought they ought to be gotten to come hero. Messrs. J. E. Scott and D. A. Cook then offered some remarks, chiefly in support of what Mr. Torter had said. The chair spoke again at some length relative to the health of Ottawa, on which subject Messrs. E. G. Osman, W. W. Taylor and F. A. Kendall also hud something to say. Mr. Kendall was stroug in his assertions in favor of raising the bonus to get the company here, and, in. deed, that seemed to be the prevailing senti ment of the meeting. Mr. Torter then Bug gested a plan which he considered a feasi ble one to raise the money. His plan was to form a stock company with $25,000 capL tal, buy 27 acres of land, give the Organ company seven acres, mark out the rest in town lets, and sell them for an advanced price after the factory was running. Mcssrs.JCook, Taylor, Hossack, and Trof. Tufts then spoko, indulging in an informal discussion of the matter, and all favoring the eoheme suggested by Mr. Torter. Mr. Torter then led the list of subscribers by pledging himself for five shares, or $500. Others followed until about $7,000 was pledged. A committee of five was then ap pointed by the chair, on motion of Mr. Hossnck, to continue the canvass for sub scriptions. This committee consisted of II. L. HoBsack, F. A. Kendall, W. 0. Rtale, D. Hess, I. N. Beem. A committee of three on organiiution was then appointed, consisting of Samuel Richolson, D. A. Cook, and 11. Mayo. The meeting then adjourned till Monday evening.

There died at his home in Rutland yester day moruing at 2 o'clock, one of the best known men and oldest settlers in La Sal'.c county Resen Debolt. No cause is assigned for his death except old age. He was eighty years old and very weak. He had taken a slight cold, and i. overtaxed his strength and was the immediate cause of his death. The many friends and aeqiiaintuncts of this old pioneer will bo much grieved to lei.ru of his death. Iteseu Debolt was born in Licking county , Ohio, December 11, 1 S0t. His father was a farmer, and IJescn followed his father's business. He moved to Illinois in 1829 end settled in ibis county on a government clnim December 18. He added to his frai from time to time, and owned at his death .00 acres of the best farming lands in the county. He was married in 1827 to Emma Grove, who was the mother of six children, His first wife died April 27, 1813, and he was married to Eliialeth Richardson in 1844. By her he had four children. The second Mrs. Debolt is elill living, as arc seven of Mr. Debo'.t's children, two by the present Mrs. Debolt and five by the first wife. The deceased has been prominently connected with the Democratic party ever since his arrival in this county, and was very strong in hie political views. He sub scribed for the Fbee TnADtn in 1840, and has taken it ever since. He has held the office of Highway Commissioner, but although somewhat of an partisan years ago, Mr. Debolt was not in the least aa office seeker. A thoroughly good man, his long life of usefulness and toil is a noble exnn pi to the young who are struggling fur wet U i in the field of honest toil and carefulness rather than with the hope of getting some thing for nothing and reaping the riches others make. LCRIN20 I'OMINY. Another f the pioneers of La Salle coun ty died at his home in Serena township on Monday Mr. L. Doininy, con of Era Dominy. Mr. L. Doininy was born in Clinton county, N.
