Thd wife and friends of Isaac Cookman would be glad to receive in telligence of him. He was last seen by friends at Cheney, W. T., on the 28th day of June, but probably passed through Lewiston, Idaho, a few days after. He is a miner by trade; is about 5 feet 10 or 11 inches high, brown hair and moustache; first and second fingers on the right hand taken off at middle joint. His intention when last heard from was to go from Cheney through Lewiston to Walla Walla, where he expected to meet two friends, and from there proceed to the Wood River country to obtain work. Any information concerning him will be thapkfully received by his anxious wife 4 Mrs. I. Cookman, at Wellington. Kansas, or by Platt Mc Donald, Democrat, Plymouth, Indi ana. National Live Stock Association. The Illinois State Board of Agricul ture on Saturday issued a call for a national convention of those interested in the breeding and managing of va rious classes of live stock, to be held in Chicago, November 13. 1884. The prevention and extermination of con tagious diseases, and legislation, na tional and state, on the subject will be discussed. The prouriety of forming a permanent organization of the stock men of the country will also be con sidered. Pioneer Press : A telegram announces that the Nantional Park hotel, in the park, will close Oct. 1, and that after that time only one tram on the branch will run but once or twice a week. Large numbers have visited the park during the season, but the hotel has been only partially suc cessful. Owing to the long transportation the cost of food has been great and labor and everything else cori espondingly high. The prospects for another year are, how ever, flattering, and it is thought that the hotel will become a prosperous institution. Another season will doubtless witness double the number of visitors at the park. New York dispatch, 19th: Yesterday die World in a double leaded article an nounced another forthcoming Cleveland scandal. To-day it has the following special from Boston: "The republican voters are busy working up an alleged new Cleveland scandal since Blaine's visit here, and with his full sanction of its publication. Affidavits are being pre pared to accompany the alleged "terrible disclosures," and it is understood they will appear in the New York Sun early next week, perhaps Tuesday. Some sur prise is expressed at Blaine's approval of this method of campaigning, but it is ex cused by republicans here on the ground that it is the only way to break the force of the latest batch of Mulligan letters." Dillon Tribune : J. W. Goodwin, city editor of the Salt Lake Tribune, passed through Dillon on last Thursday. Mr. Goodwin had been looking for his missing son who mysteriously disappeared from Salt Lake City about thirty-five days ago. While at Butte Mr. Goodwin received a telegraphic dispatch informing him that the body of his son, who was about twenty five years old, had been found in Salt Lake, aud that the circumstances seemed to in dicate that the young man had committed suicide. Mr. Goodwin told our reporter that there was nothing in his son's dispo sition and temperament, or in the circum stances by which he was surrounded, to indicate that he was a person likely to commit suicide. The mysterious manner in which the young man disappeared in dicates foul play. The line of the Northern Pacific exten sion from Superior to Ashland is complet ed so trains can run to the Brule river, a distance of twenty-five miles, and 600 men are working on the grading between that point and Ashland. Contractors will finish the work before the first of next year. The distance from Superior to Ashland by the road will be sixty-five miles. The con tractors have orders to push the work as last as possible, but the country through which it runs is a very rough one, and the work is necessarily slow. The contrac tors propose to have the contract finished before the first of the iron year. The rail road company has ordered iron enough to rail fifteen miles laid down at Ashland; , -r- - • where the remainder of the rails are to be delivered the contractors do not know as yet. --— Blaine has answered the interrogatories f w«w »l hr a wit, The answers are substantially the same as contained in his letter already published. HOW TO GET MONEY «Hit of the Pocket* of Tltooe Wks Have It to Spend. [Professor David Swing.] All this in a n orld where there are tasks to be done of all sizes and quali ties from the tending of flocks in the field to the making of a garden out of the Sahara. It is will-power and faith the most need. A common German barber said recently : "I have never been a day without work in fifteen years ; have always had good wages ; have now my home and live well and happy. I never wish to change my business; I took it for life." Thus s peaks many a carpen ter and blacksmith. Machines affect their tasks but not their skill. More wood w. rk and iron-work are done than formerly. The bold farmer faces uncertaiuty as the general or captain faces it. The battle may be lost, but it may be won. "God is on the side of the strongest battalions," and it is often will-power that creates the greatest strength. The presence in the world of great capitalists need not discourage the poor man, for it is a poor nation alone t~at should offer any alarm. The fact that tue wealthy surround each poor young man should be to him as though there was a mine of gold under foot, because that money is gathered to be spent. The yontli sees a group of citi zens who Lave money to spend. How honorably to get some of that accumu lated gold is the simple inquiry. It is perfectly certain that wood-work and iron-work aud fabrics in wool and silk or in precious stones or of ciay or brass or mar.de will open these full pock ets. All the peopie with money will always give it for meat or bread or fruit o for inventions or luxuries. One man attacks these pocket-books with "building blocks" for the children, another comes along with a music box and with the tune on a strip of paper, another comes with books, with Christ mas and Valentine and Easter cards, a little girl makes bunches of paper roses, some other hands are painting china, other are making door-mats or baskets, while elsewhere an Edison or a Gray is touch ing the gold heap with the telephone and electric light. Thus the wealth of a community lies open to the attacks from boy or girl, white man or negro. The money of the rich is all to be spent. A bright, colored man of Alabama, bought a few years ago a lot of silk-worm eggs. He and his wife begin in a small way to work up a trade in raw silk. Now he employs a whole neighborhood in his shops and the publishers of an illus trated weekly have sent their artist to make drawings of this interesting silk trade at Huntsville. The energy of the little African family has at last found the edge of the general gold heap. An Indiana man had by accident read an article on the culture of the crau berry. Soon afterward he happened to see s ime ground that met the condi tions of that chapter he had read. He secured the land at about $10 an acre and in about four years he found his profits to be about $300 an acre, and the same bushes or vines will bear fruit for twenty years. This story is repeated often by the strawberry-man and by the wheat-man and the stock-man, but it never occurs in the life of any one who is afraid to touch the earth at any point. Heroes in war are no more needed than heroes in peace. Subsisting; Off the City Dump*. [Indianapolis News.] Down near the mouth of Kentucky avenue, on the river bank, is the city dumping ground. A low marsh has b en gradually filled up with trash and refuse matter until several acres are covered with a glittering heap of tin cans, broken crockery, glass, brush, hoops (barrels and other sort), and de caying vegetables and animal matter. Nothing goes there except what is no longer worth storing away in old bar rels, or has become an ugly spot on the landscape of the back yard. Yet from this pile of thrice picked over rubbish several families rake out their entire living. Upon this rubbish — made earth—there are three families of squatters. Each has built a small house of rough boards. Stoves were rigged out from the sheet-tin and iron and other metal scraped from the "dump ;" the roofs are made of the tin gathered from the daily deposits, and the "bank" has otherwise been heavily drawn upon. Living upon the publie domain, of course they pay no rent, no taxes, nor, Beemingly, for anything they subsist upon. About meal time (the squatter is orthodox about meâl hours) you will see some of the numerous children of this citizen (?) digging into the recently deposited dumps. Grocers' wagons have been there with wagon-loads of frozen potatoes or beets cr cabbage with a barrel of spoiled bread and canned corn or tomatoes or oysters. Little cafre the squatters if the potatoes are soggy and the corn tainted. They are cheap, and right at the door. Close also, is the river, its abundance of water, made nutritions by the deposits from the pork-houses. For fuel there is no want. Boards and barrels from the dump, and the new fence around the cemetery grounds feed the fires during the winter days. Besides find* ing food these gentry torn an honest penny by melting the" lead and so. der from tiie tin in the dumps -and collect ing the scraps of iron and rikgs that may have run the gauntlet of the city "picks.** Much more pains and time Mfb**$4iisiimed in dring out a pre carious existence, than would be re quisite lor acquiring a competence in trade or daily labor. They at Lee*» [Exchsnge.] The most unfortunate attempt at re producing another's wit was made by an Englishman who didn't understand the pun, but judged from the applause with which it was greeted that it must be excellent. During a dinner at which he was a guest a waiter let a boiled tongue slip off the plate on which he was bearing it, and it fell on the table. The host at once apologized for the mishap as a lapsns linguæ (slip of the tongue). The joke was the best thing at the dinner, and our friend conclnded to bring it up at his own table. He ac cordingly invited his company, and in structed his servant to let fall a roast of beef as he was bringing it to the ta ble When the "accident" occurred he exclaimed, "That's a lapsns linguæ." Nobody laughed, aud he said again, "I sa y that's a lapsus linguæ," still no one laughed. A screw was loose some where, so he told about the tongue falling, aud they did laugh. "Royal Bob." A writer in a Detroit paper gives the following account of how Robert G. Ingersoll came to be called by the ma jestic title, "Royal Bob." The first time President Garfield visited Wash ington after his return from Mentor. oooooooooooooooooooocoooo THE GILT EDGE! F. H. LOSING, Prop., CHOICEST WINES LIQUORS and CIGARS.
