in which the thermometer has
been conducting itself is an
outrage on humanity. Once
upon a time, you know that
the rats held a meeting and
1 esolved that a bell should be-J
placed on the cat so every
body would know when she
was coming. But then arose
the question, who would "bell
the tat?" Similarly, it seems
that any wish to control the
" weather by doing something
with the thermometer would
be futile. You can, however,
do something vwith yourself

the transportation committee to secure rates
to the coming encampment of the G A. It.
at St. Louis, were In session at the Vt
house ) esterday, sa)s the Columbus 1
t if. where the) met the agents of the -e -eral
roads over which it would be conv 1 -ient
to make the trip to that cit),
with a view to getting leisonabl
rates for the thousands who wH
be p'esent on the occasion The
members of the committee listened to a-hat
the agents had to say and held another
meeting last night before their ilejiarttre
for their homo. No definite conclusion w as
arrived at though one of the niembtrs
sta'etl that theyexp'cted to secure a much
better rate than the) have ever liai hereto
fore, and he added that if there is an) one
who should be favored with a reasonable
rate bv the railroads it is the old soldier.
xs the matter stands It Is not likel) that
an) llilug definite will be known in regard
to the rates until after the net meeit g of
the Central Traffic as-o,iaticn, as tlie offers
differ so materiall) that some consultation
will have to be had.
I ast night the distinguished part) was
invited to attend the regular meeting of
McCo) post and during the evening the)
were called out aud made stirring speeches,
and were most enthusiasticall) received.
The speech of General Brow n is pronounced
b) the comrades to have bee'i one of the
strongest and most jaunted to which tlie)
have listened in tlie h ill.
The members of the couinilttt e are en
thusiastic over the location of the encamp
ment at Co'umbiis next ear. and think all
th it will be neeessar) is that Columbus
should do her duty in the way of raising
the neeessar) fund. The whole subject
seems from present indications to be in the
hands of the board of trade.

Walker were sleeping. The plastering w as
knocked from the wall, and the bureau
that was sitting near where the lightning

damage done. A gold ring in 11 jewel case
that was sitting on the bureau was badly
twisted. All the numbers of the family

more or less shocked, except Mr. and Mrs.
Walker. The strange part of the matter is
that the) were sleeping In the riom where
the damage was inostl) done and still were
the onl) ones that were not affected b) the
shock Mrs. Cramer probably felt the re
