E. folks have re-arranged their pulpit platform and raised it about two feet additional in height, so that the preacher may have full command of the congregation and be distinctly heard in all parts of the church.' The choir will occupy the platform behind the pulpit on a level with the speaker. The change is a good one and will no doubt be appreciated by the large congregations which attend to listen to the new and popular pastor, Rev. Mr. Clough. The lodge of United Workmen of, this city is composed of some of our ; most enterprising citizens. At their last meeting they showed a spirit of philanthropy in reducing their mem bership fee from 813.50 to an even 810.00. This puts it now within the reach of many who have heretofore thought they couldn’t raise the amount required. We think the above action shows not only a spirit of philanthropy, but in the ‘‘long run ” will prove a stroke of good policy for their treasury. The Railway age, of Chicago, says: The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul company has issued a gazetteer of stations on all the lines of its road, which form a considerable volume, and suggests the extent of this great system. We have taken pains to count up the number of stations in this gazetteer and find that it is no less that 628, representing an aggre gate population of 1,720,542. This gives an idea of the vast population as well as the widely extended area served by the Chicago, Milwaukee it Bt. Paul. Richland Republican: The tax matters of this town have become somewhat complicated through the commencement of an action by George Krouskop by injunction against S. C. Hyatt, treasurer of the town of Richland, to restrain him from returning his taxes as delin quent, pending the result of a suit in the circuit court, to test the validity of the assessment of 1883. The ground of the action is an alleged unfair assessment whereby it is claimed that certain personal property was not included in the assessment roll. The injuction was issued by .ludge Downs, and the result is waited with much interest and curiosity by tax payers. A Sad Accident. On Saturday last while Frank Jaeka, Amasa Wilson, and Henry .lacka, boys of this city, were hunt ing rabbits, near Frank Spensley’s residence, on the Dodgeville road, a very serious accident occurred, which it was first feared would re sult in the death of young Henry .lacka. It appears that Amasa and Henry were walking along, the for mer about a rod in advance of the latter. Henry called Amasa’s atten tion to something and Amasa turned suddenly around, the gun, which he was carrying across his left arm, was in some unaccountable manner acci dently discharged and Henry receiv ed the entire charge in his right side and arm. A few of the shot pene trated the lung. The wounded boy was immediately brought home and l)rs. Patterson and Tallman called in to attend him. It was impossible to judge of the extent of the injury. There was no large wound as the shot had scattered in the side and arm, while some of it had lodged in his clothing. The little fellow mani fested true grit and bore up bravely, telling his folks not to worry about him as he would come out all right. No dangerous symptoms have ap peared up to this writing, Thursday, and the doctors express a strong be lief in his complete recovery, which is sincerely hoped for by the entire community. Highland.

It’s a I drummer’s story. He said he would not come off the train; he did not propose to stop in Madison, but to go on to MazoManie. The “ brother hood ” spoken of was the ancient order of Uie “One Thousand and One,” and the “ High Mogul ” men tioned was nue ocher than Hon. William Welch, long of Madison, now of Minneapolis. The place of initiation was in the old “ Argus ” block now owned by Geo. Heilman, corner of Main and Webster streets. Read the following; It was in Madison, some time ago. and my recollection of that trip (J was then a “ drummer ”) makes me shudder. I had been round tor about two days, and made good sales, and also made the acquaint ance of some good fellows (as 1, thought) in the central part of town. | I was with a party at the hotel, talking and joking, when one of ’em said to me; You’d better remain to-night and ; join our beloved order —the Mystic al Brotherhood. It’ll be a great ; benefit to you in your travels, It’s i the best society m the state and you . can make friends by being known ! as a member, in ten minutes after you stop at a city or village.” I, like a sucker, took the cork undei and stayed and joined. ! The mysterious Brotherhood then \ met in a hall near the hotel. B— kept a saloon below the lodge room. There were about twelve members I of the lodge, and most of them were ■ present to assist in ray initiation. The officers were a High Mogul,! Second High Mogul, Secretary and | Treasurer. Inside and Outside sen- j tinels, and a Comit wilii three assit-1 ants. The initiation fee was any- j thing the lodge could get, from SI to So. I was received at the ante- j room by a masked guard. I heard a grum voice inside say: ‘ Is there any person in wating to ! be initiated into out beloved order?” 1 Another said; “ There is one hard customer, my lord, who lias deposited the blunt according to the requirements of our sacred order.” A bell tapped and the whole order instantly yelled “Amen! Amen!” I was led in. The whole assemb ly were in long gowns, reaching to their feet, of various colors, and had their faces masked. I was blind folded, and led three times around | the room, while they all saying: ) •'Should you feel Inclined to censure: Faults you may in others view. Ask your own heart ere you venture II it has not tailings too!” The bell tapped and I was halted before the High Mogul. Near him stood the Comit and three aids with stuffed clubs three feet long. 1 was sworn to answer all questions truth fully and keep the secrets of the order. Every time I failed to answer a question immediatly a stuffed club took me an awful belt “ far below the belt ” in the rear. The following questions were put and answered: High Mogul—“ Are you a mar-, ried man?” Candidate —“ Yes,” High Mogul—“ How many child-1 ren have you? State their ages, sex j and complexions.” Before I had answered half I was fairly lifted by the stuffed clubs. High Mogul—“ Are you in the | habit of running around nights?” j 1 answered “No ” right quickly | though it was not exactly the truth,! to escape the clubs. The devils had a big plank in the room rigged by trestles, with one end seven feet high. Near the cen ter of this plank was a hinge that worked with a trigger, hut 1 knew nothing of this until later in the proceeding. I herd all the while running water, as if the resevoir was being emptied. The bell tap ped and I was marched around again. The Great Mogul asked: “ How much water is there in the tank ?” The answer was “ four feet.” The Mogul said: “ Let it be deeper.” Then he asked me.” Have you any money, watches, notes, papers rings and precious stones that will be damaged by water?” I said “ No ” He then sang out: “ How much water is in the tank?” “Six feet ” was the answer. Grand Gogul —“ Let it be deeper.” I was next led to the plank, and compelled slowly to ascend it. I had reache the end of it, and was on my knees when the Mogul called out again: How much water is in the lank now?” The answer came, “ Nine feet.” The bell tapped, the end of the plank hopped down, and 1 went headlong —but not into a tank of water. I was caught in a large piece of stout canvas, supplied with hand holes around the edges and corners, and managed by eight or ten stout fellows. No sooner had I struck the canvas than I was tossed in the air several times. They shouted at every toss “ once more,” till finally I struck the ceiling, then they quit. The bell tapped, and I was walked up to a coffin with tin gutters around it, and in the gutters were various colored lights. In the coffin was one of the members, painted up in as gostly colors as possible, and the fellow representing the corpse had his mouth full of flour. I didn’t know it of course, till they made me take another oath and stoop to kiss the corpse. The cuss blew fully a teacupful of flour in my face and eyes. When I had cleaned and wiped off ray countenance the Mysterious Brotherhood all came round me to suake hands. I shook of course, but I clearly felt that if I had had two six-shoters, the pop ulation of Madison would have been reduced to the extent of twelve. An Answer Wanted.

Webster became its schoolmaster. | There had never been a great nation | with a universal language without dialects. The Yorkshireraau can not talk with a man from Cornwall. The peasant of the Ligurian, Apen nies, drives his goats home at even ing, over hills that look down on six provinces, none of whose dialect he can speak. Here, five thousand miles change not the sound of a word. Around every fireside, and from every tribune, in every field of ! labor aud every factory of toil, is j heard the same tongue. We owe it ;to Noah Webster’s Spelling Book and Dictionaries. He has done for us more than Alfred did fur Eng land, or Cadmus for Greece. His books have educated three genera tions. They are forever multiplying his inumerable army of thinkers, who will transmit his name from age to age. Only two men have stood on the New World, whose fame is so sure to last—Columbus, its discoverer, aud Washington, its saviour. Webster is, and will be its great teacher; and these three make our trinity of fame.” ALawyer's Opinion of Interest to all. J. A. Tawney, Esq., a leading at torney of Winona, Minn. t writes “ After using it for more than three years, I take great pleasure in stat ing that I regard Dr. King’s New Discovery for Consumption, as the best remedy in the world for Coughs and Colds.

Belmont had a very destructive fire on Thursday, which destroyed six of the business building of that place. The fire started at about three o'clock in the morning, but its origin is unknown. The St. Charles hotel, of which Charles Mappes was proprietor, was consumed. From there the fire devoured ev erything until it reached the large building owned by Robert Brown, which being built of brick—while the others were frame—stayed the; flames; otherwise all the buildings | on the west side of the street would i have been burned to the ground. The buildings burned were. Bar- j rett's hardware store, Osborne fc i Son's dry goods store, Mrs. Gleason's furniture store, J. Prichard’s furni ture store, and J. Bailey’s saloon. Hardly any of the stocks of goods were saved. Great excitement prevailed among! the people of Belmont all dayj Thursday.

Hgiv Watch Cases ere Made. In buying a silver watch case great care ; should be taken to secure one that is solid silver throughout. The cap of raoet cheap silver taoes is made of a composition known as all.ala, which is a very poor substitute f< r silver, as it turns black in a short time. The backs of such cases are made much thinner than those of an all silver case, Icing robbed in order to make the cap thicker and get in as much as possible of the cheap metal. Another important point inasilvercare is the joints or hinges, which should be made of gold. These of most cheap cases are made of silver, which is cot a suitable metal for that purpose. In a brief period it warps, bends and spreads apart, allowing the backs to become loose upon the case and admitting the dust and dirt that accummulate in the pocket. The Keystone silver Watch Cases tire only made with silver caps and gold joists. St Locn. Mo . it.
