The tailor shop is a busy hive of industry nowadays. The local poets are grinding out some very Choice Stuff. Recreation for October is up to the usual high standard of excel lence. House Steward Anderson has canned a large supply of fruit for winter use. The address of the newly elect ed Secretary of the Pierian Circle is number 155. The party residing in 236 is anxious to receive papers from Rochester, Minn. There are so many requests for the Billboard it can be sent to all only every other week. The publication in greatest de mand around here is the Billboard published in Cincinnati. Chief Clerk Davis says he has been kept humping of late on estimates and such things. The occupant of 176 will be pleased to have magazines and illustrated weeklies sent to him. The Theatre Magazine for Oc tober is crammed full of fine half, tones and interesting theatrica features. The 40 h. p. engine has been removed to the new blacksmith shop for use by the farm ma chinery department. General Manager Cad well, of the Western Shoe Co., occasion ally tackles the paper cutter in the printshop for exercise. A door is being cut in the briok wall between shops X and G which will make a straight passageway. It will also make room for a tool shop. The occupant of 589 would like to exohange the American Weekly, formerly the San Francisco Ex aminer, for the Utica Saturday Globe. From the way Supt. Williama is shooting tags into the printing office it looks as though there was a little. something doing in the twine factory. The Tribune of the Eleot leaves this po*Jt week after next. Erid will then be the only blown-in-the bottle expounder of the constitu tion on the job. \ The old tool room is to be iorn down. A new one is being fitted up in shop Gr. This is beiug done to make more room for the farm machinery department. Murphys are coming in by the carload these days. Potatoes are always palatable, three times a day. This is something that cannot be said of any other vegetable. Erid refuses to squatulate. He thinks he can demonstrate that one certain member of the Cbau tauque Circle is equal to thirty three average members. Forget it. Now that the baseball season of 1909 has faded into history the Diamond Dust column conducted by R. L. will make way for general sporting news. Prizefighting slush barred. The country papers throughout the State continue to compliment Warden Wolfer very highly on the magnificent showing recently made by the Minnesota harvesteis and mowers turned out here. The local 6liow for Thanks giving day, Nov. 25, being ar ranged by Prof. Burchard, will be a vaudeville performance. There will be about six acts of fifteen minutes each. Later on, the Pro fessor may put on a home talent minstrel show. He is breaking into the theatrical firmament gen tly, as it were. Mr R F.Wille, formerly employ ed in the front office here, writes he is now Assistant Secretary of the Barbers’ Supply Dealers’ Associa tion of America, in St. Paul. The next national convention of the Association will be held in Atlan tic City next summer and he ex pects “to be there with the bunch.” A most valuable technical mag azine—but one whose contents are written so that all may understand —is Health Culture. The Htober number contains a wellwritten article on the subject or Backache and What To Do For It. Sample copies of Health Culture may be had without expense by writing for them. The home office is at Passaic, N. J. Acknowledgement is hereby made of the receipt of a large bundle of magazines and papers from Miss Minnie M. Steward of Minneapolis. Miss Steward was formerly a resident of Stillwater and always remembers this insti tution by presenting it annually with books and magazines. This thoughtfulness on the part of Miss Steward is very highly appreciated. The Burr Mclntosh Monthly for October is at hand. Lovers of the artistic and beautiful will find this number a paragon of printed pictures. The reproductions in ool ors are magnificent. One number of the Burr Mclntosh is worth a wagon load of trashy publications. The Pittsburg views of the steel mills in operation are marvelous portrayals and well worthy of a magazine of the high standing of the Burr Mclntosh. Population.

To the Editor: I, Davy, swearing myself, but not swearing at others and believ ing myself of sound mind, do pro claim, asseverate and promosticate that the fellow who wrote you about me is envious of my good looks, many accomplishments and unbounded popularity. All I can say to that “gent’’ is, “I wouldn’t be sore because I wasn’t advertis ed.” Mr. Editor, allow me to tell you something: Some of these fellows may knock The Mirror and speak disparagingly about it, but I want to go on record as saying it is the best ad vertising medium in this place*. Please reserve space for me every week. I’ll take all I can get—and then a few lines. Your friend and brother in lim bo, Davy. Personal. Dr. Trenkle was away on a shorl trip recently.

J No man is so poor bat what he can cloth himself in the robes of righteousness. Just to taunt and make John Bull furious the London Suffra gettes are wearing red stockings. The hipless lady is very numer ous in fashionable society but the hipless woman is still as scarce as hen’s t( eth. I bcli#ve Dr. Cook was at the North Pole, but even if Iris story is untrue Peary will never be able to nail the lie with a knocker’s hammer. The Chicago Cubs have lost the rag but that is not going to stop me from chewing the fabric just long enough to say that I still believe they are the greatest ball team in the world. A young man recently applied for a job as floor walker in a big department store and on being asked if he ever had any experi ence in that line of work replied that hp was the father of twins. Harriman was a pursuer after the elusive dollar but he never was an affinity chaser. He did not desert the woman who in his early life darned his sox and shin gled the roof of his pants—for a high kicking stage beauty. During the Presidental cam paign of 1896 the papers told us that after the election was over W. J. Bryan would have to fall out, of a window or be bitten by a mad dog to attract public at tention but W. J. has been very much in the limelight ever since and when he is in your immediate neighborhood if you care to take the trouble of putting your ear to the ground you will discover that his shoes are still making a noise like Presidential brogans. The Chautauqua. Sunday, Oct. 10, the Pierian Circle held its postponed quarterly meeting at which the following program was rendered: Mr. C. entertained the Circle with a piano eolo entitled, Hungarian Dances. No comments are neces sary, as proved by the amount of applause given. Sketch of the World’s History, by Mr. D., was an historical re sume of ancient history on which the writer had evidently spent con siderable time, both in research and preparation. Mr. L. G. entertained in his usual pleasing manner, by reciting a monologue. Charles Lamb, by Mr. Van D. was a clear, concise and pleasing sketch of that author. Mr. Van D.’s contributions are so well pre pared and delivered that they al ways entertain regardless of subject matter. Violin solo—Southern Melodies, by Mr. W. This number will be all the more appreciated by the members when they learn that it was rendered without any previous rehearsal and the pianist had only a violin score to help him. Lights Along the Trail—by the librarian, Mr. Van D. No. 2. The author made a most eloquent and potent plea for thoroughness and cheerfulness in all of life’s under takings and vicissitudes. Paper and delivery were both excellent. The Critic reviewed the numbers in his inimitable and just manner. Then came adjournment for two weeks. A. E. D., Secretary Cell changes: 54 to 544; 218 to 410; 371 to 21; 132 to 533; 533 to 433; 433 to 132; 655 to Hosp.; 204 to 635; 174 to 318. Diverse Reflections e e by erid • • Dreamland, Sept., 60, 9080. Friend Erid: The Miri-or has just come. In a few minutes I expect The Twins, of Mulberry Patch so While the Band Plays the Sandwich Game I’ll write a few lines to you. Yens Yenson is purty good but he bane no Swede or he’d try to write English better. I like the poet ical dreams cast upon the idle pages. Near the margin Angel blueico gets up some ingenuic spasms of poe-etry and does classic classical to a style that has class, but of all the contributions Re flections is the .very best —being along the edge for me—as I find them handy to tear off for pipe lighters. So you want news from “Dream land?” It is ze one grand waltz! Mits Chestnuts, In the House Next Door is singing Baby’s Got a Tooth. She Gave Me a Pretty Red Rose for A Curl From My Baby’s Head just before they Put Me Off at Buffalo, but nowadays We Never Speak as We Pass By. I Owe Ten Dollars to O’Grady and McNulty lately found A Mother’s Watch by the Sea. Sweet Heath er Bells remind me that it is time I answered The Last Call For Supper. Near my plate at supper lay Only a Blue Bell, several Sweet Alpine Roses and a copy of My Respects to McGinnis. Helen Hunt sat opposite me and said: I’ll be Waiting Near the Pig Sty. I replied: If I Thought That You Thought That I Could Forget You, I’d Think It Was You Who’d For get—and—but she retorted: May be When You Find That the Girl That You Met in the Park is the Girl That You Loved When at School You’ll Cease Flattering Me. The popular shoe shop runner, I-Scream Cone, predicts a few cool days before Spring. The home resident who made The Whisper ing Pines a famous resort for hot lemonade, ice cold peanuts, scrambled ham, shell-less eggsmnd sundry other appetizing things, expects to see Annie Laurie, 'Way Down in Old Kentucky sometime after the Roses Bloom I Again. All the Gaiety Girls from ’Way Down East will be there too and There’ll Be a Hot Time in the Old Town. Spect Tony of the 4-Bar Ranch will be present, bringing The Little Brown Jug, for Ikey the p. C. to swing around The Gay, Gay Circle. A Happy Day is guar anteed by All Coons. The even ing’s program contains A Stroll by Moonlight and O’Casey’s Ball. After the Ball, W T aldorf will serve the bunch with a special meuu arranged by King Menelik. Care will be taken to prevent Handy Andy’s pulling a cork within twenty feet of the banquet board. A rendition of Marching Through Georgia will occur at 12:30, the musicians engaged being: The Boys in Blue, Uncle John, of Cor net Place and The Two Little Ragged Urchins. Well, Marguerite and all old Comrades are Sailing on lovely waters when not quarreling about The Dear Old Family Toothbrush. If you ever again tell me: Stick to Your Mother, Tom and surmise that It’s Nice to Be a Father I’ll put The Letter in the Candle. My Little Bunch of Roses pleased you, I note. I saw Moriarity On a Bright Summer Morning lately and he said: I Feel Just as Happy as a Big Sun Flower. He wanted borrow My Grandfather’s Clock, but I’ve tossed it long ago—One Hundred Fathoms Deep. So he remarked: Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep to Wither and Decay. Oh, well, They All Belong to the Hardware Line. Yours, In the Gloaming, Thomas Tom-Tom.
