VOL 48. OTTAWA, ILL., SATURDAY, MAY 7. 87. NO. 43. M LIVE TO. PLEASE. The measure of life being but a t pan, We should enjoy it while we can j To accomplish this no better way Than life with all in harmony. Each 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, Fermit us here a word to say, And introduce you, if you choose, To our unequalled stock of shot. There's nothing like it in the land, And prices jrhat the times demand, Besides in comfort, ease and wear, i'ou'll find perfection eysry pair. A. M NCH.

The Interstate Commerce Bill makes about $4,000 a year difference to Miln's company in expenses, and to about 400 other com panies of the same size or larger it makes the same or a greater difference.
