West Side" Eurly last Tuesday morning, whilo tho rain was descending with n gentle patter, and tho oat birds and martins were oiler lag up their early morning mutins of praise, we were very much surprised to see object that at first sight wo took to bo KuabetiHliuo nnd his world rniimvncd Air Ship, but which up on olosor sight proved to bo a gentleman garbed in n rough look ing checkered stilt, while nn aged panania surmounted Ills dome of knowledge Do carried an enor mous brnvn Unibrolla which pres ented such an ancient nppearanco that wo presume it was a relic of tho Ark, Now, thinks I, that must surely bo "Teddy", fleeing from tho coming election or n gang of anarchists, but when I felt tho grip of his hearty lintulNlmko and heard the sound of his strong ro Honant voico, T recognized Mr. Wm. Acker, better known as "Si Hubbard", representative of the DiiMooitAT-SiiNTiNTr., a paper sec ond to none In tho State of Ohio. Well, after brother Si had told me who I was and I had roturnod tho compliment vice versa, ho began to talk, and people, I am right hero to say that there is n man who when ho sots sail on the con versational aoa, can talk. Why ho talked a dollar right out of my ponket iuto his, and now, in conclusion wo would say that whilo tho foregoing does'nt exact ly come under tho heading of "common-souse", wo trust Mr. Acker will not think it is intended for "ridiculo", but rather a little pleasanf'send off" of good-follow-ship. The Misses Florence and Maggie Klinkcr were cnllers on Miss Dura' Wilson, recently. Thore are just two reasons why I am sorry I evor went on my Eastern trip. First Uncle Mack, whom I loft to fill my spneo on the D, S., nnd in whom I had unlimit ed confidence, hasenvolved me in a quandary from which I find it dif ficult to oxtricato myself. He promised 1 would give you tho Thaw trial in detail. Now while I am sorry to disappoint tho readers it is entirely impossible for mo to substantiate Uncle Mack's prom ise. If you want to know tho reason why, ask Messrs, Delnias and Jerome. Thov aro supposed to bo lawyers, I am not. Senond ly, I thought I knew something before I went, but now T know I don't. Readers, who would you rather have to write your news, Uncle Mack, or Old Scribe? ,. Simon lJInckston nan been quite sick for tho past wee!:.

Why, Mr. Farmer, and others as well, the tax you pay on a dog will nearly buy a pig, and what you feed a dog will grow that pig, and nt maturity means from $10 to $20.

An editor is called woak, aud designated as having no bone. Not a day paes but what some person with a grievance comes to tho news paper office with an article to pub lish which themselves would not repeat to the enemy to their face. And publishing an article in n pnper of general circulation makes an oditor a hundred times more responsible than the mere repeat ing from mouth to mouth, which in itself is terrible euough. Rut ono thing the newspaper fraternity have learned in the last few years. Abuso Is not news and an abusive newspaper is but digging its own gravo. It is uot good buslnebs polioy, and It ie not good sense, As for the matter of right or wrong, It takes more back bone to refuse to publish an article than it does to publish it.
