The doctor began by expressing surprise
that his old comrades had so well preserved
their ages. He spoke of Maj. Hodgkiss,
who started the first newspaper in the city

devil and could find no bigger one than the
youthful A. A. Ames. The doctor was
then installed in the office in the capacity

veritable boy of the period. When the Re
bellion broke out he enlisted as a private

pun was Issued to him as orderly sergeant

the old soldiers which it can never repay.
Every soldier is deserving the gratitude of
this great nation and he should never be

congress of toe United States would
amend the pension act so that every
old soldier would be given a competency in
payment for the common debt of gratitude.
It is difficult for a comrade to establish that

Patsy Cardiff Compels Biff Mack to
Patsy Cardiff is a prime favorite among
the local sports. The announcement that
he was to have a four-round soft glove con
test with Big Mack, a well-known
young pugilist who lias never been
knocked out of time, was sufficient to pack
the Comiqne from orchestra rail to the
doom and behind the flies. He stands "six
feet in his stockings" and weighs 14S
pounds. He is a veritable giant and has
no lack of sand. Patsy was not in very
good condition. He caught a bad cold and
Iris stomach had been out of order all day.
Shortly after he stepped upon the stage he
had an attack of vomiting, but he had no
misgivings. He knew that Big Mack more
than lacked in fistic skill what he made up
in Herculean strength. Big Mack strikes
terrific blows, but Cardiff was sure that he
could duck them.
Time was called at 1:10 o'clock. James
Wheeler, the stage manager, acted in the
double capacity of referee and timekeeper,
in accordance with the wish of both par
ties. Patsy Cardiff was introduced
lirst with the explanation that
he stands ready to fight any pugilist in*
America for from 53.000 to $5,000 a side,
to the finish with hard gloves. Big Mack
was then introduced. After a few feints
and maneuvers, Cardiff led out with a
stunning right-liander alighting squarely in
the pit of the stomach. It was a surprise
to Mack, and no attempt had been made to
avoid it. Mack recovered himself instantly
aud let his left fly, but it was cleverly
dodged. Both thou sparred cautiously,
watching for an opportunity, which they
did not seem to find for a time. Biff Mack
wa9 first to opeu the fi£lit. He struck fu
riously, first with his right and then with
his left, but without effect. Cardiff coun
tered with telliug effect A tremendous
right-hander visited Mack's nose, aud the
claret spinkled the stage. Mack then
fought with desperation. Cardiff contin
ued to duck successfully, avoiding some
terrific sledge-huunuer blows, and,clinching
Mack, attempted to throw him, but Mack
was too heavy. Mack managed to get in a
few bad blows, but it was short arm work.
Breaking away. Cardiff fought with both
hands until time was called. Both
blowed considerably, and Big Mack bled
at the nostrils and his upper lip showed a
slight gash. Cardiff had not received a
Manager Brown here instructed Stage
Manager Wheeler to put a stop to all slug
ging. He said he should not allow the con
test to proceed unless it should be a sparring
exhibition. The contestants' acceeded and j
the second round was opened. Each was j
cautious, but Cardiff had everything his j
own way and let out heavy blows, followed
by deft cross" counters, and more blood
stained the stage. When time was called.
Big Mack threw up the sponge. Cardiff
was loudly cheered, and when Big
Mack stepped to the footlights and explained
that ho had trained only two days and that
he was too fat, etc., otherwise he would
have given Cardiff a hard fight, Cardiff
tossed the big soft gloves to the audience
and explained had he used hard gloves
Mack could not stay one round. He offered
him $50 to try it.
Tito Employment of- Convict Labor
to be Denounced.
It has been announced that the com
mittee of the Trades and Labor assembly
would meet last evening to make arrange
ments for a public meeting to be held on
bridge square this evening at which a dis
cussion of the stone-arch bridge question
would take place. The committee did not
materialize last evening. The tearing
down the suspension bridge has created
considerable opposition among the working
men, who from the standpoint of
taxpayers, regard the scheme as amount
ing to a wanton waste of money.
Some are inclined to think that the present
bridge facilities are sufficient; others that
a new bridge should be built at First or Sec
ond avenue south, and the suspen
sion bridge allowed to remain
For the enlightenment on the subject the
Trades and Labor assembly appointed a
committee to arrange for the meeting, and,
in the absence of notice to the contrary, it
can be understood that the meeting will be
held this evening, as announced.
There is another branch of the question
which will be taken up in this connection.
This is that of the employment of convict
labor. There is a determination on the part
of the labor organizations that stone to be
used in public buildings shall be cut within
the city, and not let to contractors who will
have the work done by convicts in the peni
tentiaries. The Stonecutters'union have
already taken steps to enlist the
aid of the Trades and Labor
assembly and the public at large
In an effort to prevent work being taken
from them and given to these contractors,
who will have their stone cut abroad and
brought to the city already dressed. There
is no mistaking the public sentiment in this
matter, and the object of arousing it on
this occasion is because of the near approach
of the time for letting the contract ou the
government building. The feeling is that
the citizens should insist that both the city
and government authorities should be will
ing to set the pattern for "paying a fair
day's pay for a fair day's work." By pre
venting jobbery, and having good work
done, the buildings may stand forever al
most as examples of the way in which
public work may be made to help the work-,
ing classes, and become a source of pros
perity ?o all.

Three aldermen, who had visited the state
fair grounds yesterday, found time at the
city hall to discuss the stone arch bridge
question. Said one: "Our people seem to
be laboring under a wrong impression. They
allege that we are going to tear down the
suspension bridge at once and replace it
with a stone arch bridge. That is all wrong.
The suspension bridge will doubtless do
service for five years yet. We propose to
only build half the stone arch superstructure
at first. Again they say that 6235,000 will
be needlessly thrown away. It was prac
tically thrown away when the suspension
bridge was built.
A prominent member of the labor organ
izations of this city appreciates the import
ance of constructing the stone arch bridge.
It will give lucrative employment to a largo
crew of laborers. He said: "A movement
should at once be placed on foot to the end
that no convict labor shall be employed.
The stone should all be cut by Minneapolis
men. And in regard to the new govern
ment building, no time should be lost, In

3Tho Last oS Barrett.
Lawrence Barrett's successful engage
ment is drawing to an end. It has been a
remarkable week and an entirely satisfac
tory one. The bill last night was "Julius
Caesar," the role of Cassius affording Bar
rett full opportunity for the display of his
fiery and vehement oratory, which is his
strong characteristic. The audience was a
large one and thoroughly appreciative—
even critical. The support was happily
given, and the heavy tragedy was an entire
success. This afternoon "Francesca da
Rimini" will be given, and to-night the
double bill, two new comedies, " The
Wonder" and "The King's Pleasure" will
be given. Large houses will certainly be
the portion of the last day of this most
successful engagement.

Origion of the Petticoat.
It is a remarkable fact that the petti
coat was first worn by men, and that even
in this age and generation men are loath to
discard its bowing drapery. "I like to
record this fact." writes a lady. "Nat
urally, women take a sort of savage satis
faction in discussing a weakness in the
other sex, especially in the matter of dress.
Please don't stare me out of contenence at
the supposed presumption of my assertion
that men have, or appaar to have, a sort of
envious feeling toward us for having stolen
from them this prerogative, and that they
clutch at every means in their power to
wrest it from or at least share it with us,
for I'll prove it before I get through. And
we do not wonder this is so. There is
dignity in drapery, as well as grace and
elegance, When Henry VIII. went to
meet Anne of Cleves he was habited, we
read, 'in a coat of velvet somewhat made
like a frocke, embroidered all over with
flatted gold of demaske, with small lace
mixed between, of the same gold, and other
lace of the same goim: traverswise; that the
ground little appeared'; and by a descrip
tion of a similar garment belonging to his
father. Henry VII., we read of its being
decorated with bows of ribbon, quite as
ladies of the present day would adorn a ball
room dress. It is well known that the gar
ment was at first not alone a skirt, but, as
the name denotes, a little coat. How it
j came to lose its upper half or body we do
not know, unless the petticoat was made
with long skirts for the sake of warmth,
and in each case itwas as much petticoat,
as we understand, it as anything else.
"We have only to look at Shaksperean
characters Jet us be thorough and go
back to the time of patriarchs discover
the skirts of men. And easily enough wo |
trace them down through the ages. In the j
inventory of the effects of Henry V. appear s
a 'petticoat on red demask with open !
sleeves,' and. although it was a question
whither this had been fashioned for a man
or woman, it would if a woman's be the
only instance known before Elizabeth's
time of a woman using such a garment.
Thus we hear nothing of women's petticoats
before the Tudor period. 'Good Queen
Bess,' with all her learning, which was
essentially masculine in her age and time,
instinct of womanliness as regards personal
adtornmen, and even though we find her
deficient in taste, and heartily wish she
had not made such a guy of herself in her
old age, yet as a woman we have to thank

The Hollo Girl.
One should be honest enough with him
self, and have sufficient consideration for
the comfort of the public not to knowingly
or intentionally indulge in fool talk. The
public ear is a dumping place for nearly all
kinds of stuff, yet there are many loads too
foul or too foolish to be allowed to mingle
with the conglomerated mass already there.
The talker knows how rotten his stuff is
and ought to be governed accordingly.
; The hello girl in . a telephone exchange
ought to have a pretty good idea of what
the public ear has to endure. Day in and
day out she lias poured into her ear a mass
of talk that is well calculated to set an
ordinary mortal crazy. There is usually a
large percentage of sense in what she hears,
while the reverse is true of the public ear.
Cranks, light-weights, and addled-heads
pour the largest quantities into the public
ear. It is light, cool, and free from any
positive dualities, yet it palls, dulls the
sense, and leads to the conclusion that there
are circumstances under which deafness
may be a blessing.Pittsburg Dispatch.

An Independent family newspaper, accurate and impartial in the pre
sentation of its news. Devoted to the building up of the Material and
Social Interests of the Great Northwest.
Aiming in all things to be a reflex of the best sentiments of the people
of this grand section. It will be alive to every interest. Vigilant in
collecting all the important news and market and crop reports. It will
stand for honest government, county, state and national, a revised tariff
reducing the burthens of agriculture, opening of American markets to
the world, the improvement of all our natural waterways to the sea, and
the dethronement of monopoly.
Its Society and Household talk will contain matter especially edited to
entertain the family circle.
The Farm Department will not be simply a rehash from foreign agri
cultural papers but will be carefully edited from a practical Northwestern
standpoint. As diversified agriculture produces the best results to the
farmer, whose prosperity is the cornerstone of all material and enlight
ened progress, the GLOBE will continue to advocate its advantages.
