Chicago Meet
Washington Park, Chicago, July 3. The
weather was delightful ; if anything a irifle
warm. The racing was fully up to an aver
age of the previ )us day. The principal
interest was in the boulavaid stake which
Lizzie Dowlver won verv easily. The at-

far exceeding that of the first day.

The Bazoo having sent a photograph of the great John Trimmer Heard
to a celebrated phrenologist for the pnrpose of getting a chart made of his
cranium, the result as given above will prove to numberless people that the
"half has never been told." It will be seen first of all that the bump of
"conscience" is after a very small pattern, and the phrenologist states that
at first it was scarcely discernable. The bump of "self esteem" is abnormally
developed and seems to be getting the bulge on the great hand shaker. The
bump of "destructiveness" is very prominent, and as it lies just above the ear
will probably have a hearing as soon as Johnny gets the "noble order" down
fine. The bump marked "sublime idea of himself" has a distinctiveness of
outline, which is most marked, but since nobody else shares that territory he
will probably not do any harm by it. The bump of "acquisitiveness" will
convince people that Johnny Irim was really not to blame in endeavoring to
make money off the governmeut by pushing fraudulent claims. The bump
of "memory" will prove that this quality has never applied to the kind
deeds of friends, and in fact the other bumps need no explanatioa beyond the
fact that they are there and are bravely holding their own. The phrenologist
in further remarks concerning the head, says that the result "would have
probably proven more satisfactory, but the head was much swelled, hence
could not be properly estimated. He thinks, however, that after August he
will be able to do bet er, and requests the public to be patient.
A head of wondrous bumps is it,
With self esteem so great ;
It reaches out from Washington
And stumps our lovely state.

Mo., Advertiser of the date of Julv the
1st, 1880", to-wit:
"Some of Mr. Heard's political enemies
in Howard county are busily engaged re
peating the old lie that Mr. Heard made a
statement to the effect that the name of
one merchant or banker to the name of a
petition was worth more or should be en
titled to more weight than the names of

manufactured for the occasion for the pnr
pose of prejudicing farmers against him.
We are authorized by Mr. Heard to pro
nounce it a base and infamous falsehood.
Like the 'Cherokee Indian' business it
will not bear inspection, and we are sur
prised that any sensible man would be
guilty of repeating such nonsensical buncombe."'

Through Negligence.
Kansas City.Mo., July 3. The coroner's
inquest was held this morning to investi
gate the case of Nelson Pope, killed by the
cable cars Thursday evening. Several
witnesses testified that Pope's wagon was
carried fifteen feet after being struck by
the car, and as the g ade was slightly up
hill at the curve it was thought
the grip was not released
as soon as it should have been. It was
stated that Mr. Pope was dragged some
distance and when picked up was between
the grip car and the other car. The ver
dict of the jury was that Mr. Pope came
to his dsath through the negligence of the
employes of the cable company.

signature of one merchant or banker would
weigh with hi in on a petition equal to
from twenty to twen'y-tive ether persons

in Fayette, Mo., tha in considering names
on a petition he would make the
or merchant equal to from (25) twenty
five to (50) fifty farmers. I make this
statement to correct a known and willful

it on the street that Mr. Heard had
sard he would consider the name of one
merchant or banker of more influence on a
petition than twenty-five to fifty farmers; to
which Shepherd replied that he had.
Thereupon Mr. Heard entered into an ex

ordering them to admit none hereafter.
The assembly has over 100 local assemblies

How It Is "Called In" in the Territory at
A man was one day making a trip oa
s mixed" train on a Dakota road.
Passage on these trains is never taken
except for journeys of considerable
length; walking is as easy and mnea
faster for short distances. On this oo
casion the movement was even mors
deliberate than usual and the passen
ger called the conductor to his seat
and said:
'Isn't this motion prettv slow?"
Well, we ain't flying, I'll admit"
Sure everything's all right?"
I think so."
Wheels all greased tf
Yes, I greased them myself."
fTires all on?"
Yes, we run through the creek back
here and soaked up the wheels so they
would stay."
Any spokes loose?"
You are certain the wheels are all
on the rails?"
They was when I came in."
Couldn't be possible that any of
them are off and the axle dragging,
could it?"
I guess not."
Are we going up hill?"
No, this is pretty mid'iin lerel.
Do you always run st this gaitr
No, we generally hump along a
little faster' n this."
May I ask what is the trouble
Certainly. We found s two-year
old steer stuck in the trestle back hers
before you got on and stopped sad
helped it out. You know the rules si
the road are that in such cases the sal
mal belongs to the company."
But I don't see why that should
