AUSTIN. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 81,1888.
LYLE
Miss JennieWhitc wont to Austin Saturday.
Hon. A. F. Nordcn will speak at Lyle to­
night.
Our streets are a vast improvement with
the new gutters in.
H. O. Durkee, tbe life insurance man, was
in town several nays this week.
J. O, Myhre returned from Chlcagp last
weok. Made quite an extended trip*
Mrs. Schuyler and Mrs. Van Camp went to
Osage, la., Saturday for a visit with friends.
E. H. Donaldson has been busy this week
fixing up bis house and preparing for winter.
Mrs. J. E. Williams is visiting her mother
in Mitchell, Iowa, who has been quite lit, but
is now better.
Rev. Barkaloo preached his first sermon in
Lyle last Sunday. Re made a good impres
sion on his audienoe.
P. F. Rooney will speak at Lyle, Friday,
Nov. 2. Make a note of it. He is a good one,
and you want to hear him.

of sickness in his family, but at last reports
tbe invalids were all improving.

bouncing boy at bis house since Wednesday,
tbe 24th. Mother and son doing well.
Doctor Frazer's family have gone to Arkan­
sas to spend the winter with Mrs. Frazer's
relatives. The Doctor looks rather forsaken.
John Penny was in town last week. He Is
preparing to move from Mona to Staoyville,
but will not make the change until after be
votes.
Louis Sherman and Oliver Myhre spent Sun
day in Lyle. Monday morning they returned
to Osage, where they are attending tbe Cedar
Valley Seminary.
The jail caujrht fire Monday morn­
ing, but by the timely efforts of several citi­
zens the fire was extinguished before
(much
damage had been done to the building.
Talk about Lyle going Democratic! Here is
about the way she will size up after election.
At a place where campaign badges are sold,
we found that sixteen Harrison badges to one
Cleveland badge had been sold. And the
merchant assured us he could have sold 84 to
one if he had the Harrison badges. Demo­
cratic? Well, not bad.
The Democratic speech Saturday night was
considered a slim affair. The same tune was
sung that was composed by Cleveland. The
terrible surplus and that it has wrung from the
poor farmer. The hand writing on the wall
bceomes more and more distinct. If Cleve­
land would only start a bank in Lvle witb
some of bis surplus, he might gain two or
three-more votes, but even that is doubtful.
If be han only heard the vibrations that em­
anated from an anvi| and seen tbe sky rock­
ets Saturday night, be would undoubtedly
have been cheered. The rockets are a fit
emblem of bis administration.

From a Man Up a Tree.
DEXTER, Minn., Oct. 29,1888.
We wonder how many "scratched"
tickets will be voted next Tuesday. We
will venture to assert at least 90 per cent
wiil be voted by Republicans. The Pro
liibs will vote nearly straight, and I think
Barnuui offers a reward for a Democrat
that scratches his ticket. Now what is
the matter this year with the Republicans
giving them pay in tbeir own coin. It
is, we think, expected by some that, Mr.
Wood will be re-elected to the office of
Register of Deeds oyer Mr. Shortt, the
Republican, but what for? No one will
deny that Mr. Shortt is not fully compe­
tent and able to take care of the office.
He was deputy several years under Mr.
Trowbridge, and is a poor man and needs
the salary, and while we can say no word
against Mr. Wood as a man and a citizen,
still we like to see a square deal. Mr.
Shortt had a fair nomination in tbe Re­
publican convention and we cannot see
why voters want to go back on the con­
vention. It is reported that Mr. Wood
eas come out flat-footed tor Tlios. Wil­
son an I will do what he can to elect him,
and where is the reason in us going to
work and elect him and reward him for
doing all he can to foist a Democratic
Congressman on us again. We say it is
not fair nor right, and we do not believe
it will be done when voters come to
think it over. We can say the same in
regard to Mr. King and Mr. Christgau in
this North District. While they are ad­
mitted to be good citizens, still they,
like "old dog Tray," are caught in bad
company and they should be made to
take their medicine with the rest. The
men opposing them are their equals and
when they say "give me your vote as a
friend and compliment I do not expect to
be elected, tell them as the "man up a
a tree will," "I have a friend in the Re­
publican candidates and I had rather vote
for a man who does expect to be elccted,"

An Ircaiog With Elocution,
It was a large audince that greeted
the Dupils of Bin. H.O. Durkee's class in
Elocution at their public recital in Aus­
tin Opera House, last week Tuesday eyea
log. Tho class was composed mostly of
young ladies, a number of them teachers
in our Public School, The audince was
first introduced to the pupils, with the
Dekarte exercises, given by tho entire
class, The young ladies being costumed
in Cream tinted Sailors Suits. The effect
was very pleasing, and the ease and grace
with which they executed the various
movements, spoke well for the careful
training of the teacher, and the patient
pratice of the pupil. Next on the pro
gram was an instrumental duet by the
Misses Harvey and Kahnweiler, which
elicted a full share of applause from the
audience. Miss Berdme Mandevillo op­
ened the recitative part of the program
with "Anx ltaliens,"winning the close
attention of her hearers throughout it
was quite a difficult selection, and was
well rendered. "Dorothy in the Garret,"
by Miss Lockwood. A good selection
given in a very creditable manner.
Little Belle Corey Succeeded in ''Let­
ting the old Cat Die" most beautifully.
Her Papa may well be proud of her.
Miss Laura Crane portrayed so c'
the individuality of the "Little Quaker
Sinner" that the audience could almost
see the tuck in the little maiden*s dress.
"Connor," by Miss Belle Mudge, was
well sustained throughout in manner and
accent. Many listening hearts following
the deeply Pathetic story to its sad end­
ing with closest attention.
"A Catastropby," by six little maid­
ens, which left "the maddest baby you
ever saw" on the awning where he had
fallen from an upper window, was most
heartly applauded.
Harry Keyscr, brought down the house
bv his excellent rendition of "Whoa.dah!
Nebuchadnezzar"
"How he Saved St. Michales, a strong
dramatic selection was yery creditably
given, by Miss Horrobin, who well inter­
preted the spirit of the selection.
Clara Mandeville, in "Signs and Om­
ens," threw herself into the spirit of the
piece, sustaining tbe dialect of the Dutch­
man with genuine merit.
"Margery Daw," in chorus and recita­
tion, by liye little girls, Anna Belle
Woodsum giving the recitation, was very
good.
The C«urt Sccne, from the "Merchant
of Venice," was giving by the ladies nam­
ed, teachers in our public school:
Shy lock Miss Forster
Antonio.... Miss A.Truesdell
Duke Miss Graham
Clerk Miss Sherwood
Bassanio Miss Truesdell
Gratiano .Miss Willard
Portia Miss Anderson
Nerissa Miss Cameron
The parts are well taken showing care­
ful, skillful training. Most of the in
personations were given with fine effect,
and the interpretations of character and
realistic.
Miss Gertie Sherwood gave the hum
orus selection. "The Mouse and the Rat"
in a wonderfully clever manner.
The evening's exercises closed with
'Lameame, or the Marble Dream," a
costume recitation, This was a highly
Dramatic selection—and Miss Ethel
Davidson received many compliments for
her rendition of this difficult recitation
The ease and grace with which the class
executed the various movements spoke
well for tbe careful training and patient
drill of their faithful teacher Mrs. H. O.
Durkee. Tbe Descarte methods combine
ease, grace and health, and contain all
the principles of gesture, and when we
add to their principles, natural genius
and the scientific application of the
philosophy of expression we shall have
artists in this most desirable of acquire­
ments.
We trust the good work so well bepun
will go on, that the class exercises will
be continued and that our young people
will relize more than ever before, that to
be a good reader is the rarest and best of
all accomplishments.
Do You Suffer From Rheumtism
No one who has not been a sufferer can
have any idea of the excrutiating agony
caused by Rheumatism. This painful
disease is frequently caused by a stoppage
of the circulation of the blood, through
the muscular portions of tbe body. UAL
LARD'S SNOW LINIMENT will invari
bly cure this disease by penetrating every
spot of the skin and drawing to the outer
surface all poisonous matter and restor­
ing a natural circulation of the blood.
