Governor Peck of Wisconsin Kay. a Good Word For Bis Opponent. Major Bill Upbiun, the Republican nominee for governor, was the first out sider to put in an appearance at Phil lips the little town that has just been obliterated by fire. Walking among tho ruins, he met the postmaster of the place. "What's become of your coat?'" asked Upham. "Egad, I lost it in the fire," said the postmaster. "I haven't got .a stitch of clothes except such as I have on now." Bill whipped off his coat in a second. "Tako my coat, " says he. "I've got an other at home. Take it, and when yoa get through with it pass it along to souio other fellow that needs it " - An hour later Governor Peck arrived at Phillips, and the postmaster was tell ing him how Bill Uphain had made him take and wear his coat, while he (Bill) was going around in his shirt sleeves. "Yes, that's just like Bill," said Peck. "He has probably given away his Bhirt by this time, and his panta loons, and his shoes and socks. Bill never stands around and lets other peo ple suCor when he can help 'em. The chances are that by the time he gets ready to quit this place he'll have to walk to tho train in a barrel. " This iucidunt illustrates very fairlv the kindly feeling that exists between tho two gubernatorial candidates. To be snre, Peck has not yet beeu renom inated, but his renoiuinatiou seems a foregone conclusion. Chicago Record. An infant Phenomenon. A real infant phenomenon keeps all the medical men and pedagogues of the good old town of Brunswick in a 6tate of wonder and delight Tho little son of a local butcher, a baby just 2 years old, can read with perfect ease anything written or printed in German or Latin characters. A few weeks ago three Brunswick doctors had the baby intro duced to them at the house of one of tho learned gentlemen. The first thing the little one did when brought into the consulting room was to stand on his toes at the table, reading out from the books that were lying about When 18 months old, tho baby liked books and newspa pers better than lollipops and toys, and whatever the parents playfully told him he rcnieuibered, with tho result that, at the age of 2 years, he reads with per fect ease. Westminster Gazette. Testing a Hone's Wind. While talking about horses the other day an old farmer said: "Well, I'm a pretty good judgo of horses and can al ways tell whether a horse is short wind ed or not. "Before I buy a horse, " he contin ued, "I just borrow it for abont an hour or so, and then I get out on some lonely road and see what kind of stuff he is made of. "I first let him choose his own gait for a couple of mile posts aud finally give him plenty of rein, making him go for all he is worth. All the time I just keep my eye on his haunches, and if I see any rotary motion there it's a sign he's thick winded, and of course every one knows that kind ain't much good. " Philadelphia Call IHdnt Want to Be Shielded. Ee took her hand gently in his. They were affianced, and there was no kick coming on the score oi conven tionality. "I will always," he murmured, "be at hand to shield thee in the great struggle of life. " Sho gazed earnestly into his loving eyes. "No" She seemed not to be aware that he started violently upon the word. "I must insist upon going to bar gain sales alone. Yon would only be in the way. " ' Even as she spoke her face kindled with tho excitement of the fray. De troit Tribune. The Weather. Fair weather and slightly warmer; easterly winds. F. J. Wau. Observer. FRIDAY.

If Chief Sexton's great offense which the Union withheld from the public so long as a favor to him, was so grave as to have called in his "star and buttons'' in the first place had it been divulged, why should not the same penalty annlv now? n 1 IIJ -w crime so great as the Union charges sexton with should be lessened by the lapse of so short a length of time as four months. Now that the worst is out and more, why is the chief still enjoying all the official privi leges of his position? The fall term at Angustana Busi ness college opens Wednesday, Sept. 5. This model school of business training offers two very thorough and practical courses of study, viz: a course in business and a course in shorthand. Its faculty is composed of teachers who are eminently quali fied for their professional duties, and who are untiring in their efforts to secure practical results in the class room. In the matter of general equipment, the institution recognizes no superior in the northwest. All who may desire to enroll are re quested to de so at the opening of the term. FROM SHORE TO SHORE. A Davenport Girl Swim the MlMlMippI at Cordova. A party of Davenport yonng peo ple who were recently camping near Cordova had one among them who performed a feat, which, to all ac counts, has never been equaled bv any other young lady in the three cities. She swam across the Missis sippi at that point, and the water is as deep and the current as rapid and dangerous in places as it is anywhere opposite the city here. She sur prised every one of her companions, for none of them believed that she would dare undertake such a per formance. They did not believe that she had the courage to do it. Always an Expert Swimmer. For years she has taken quite an interest in aquatic sports, and has always been regarded as an expert swimmer by the young lady friends who every summer form the partv with which she goes on an outing. "I made np my mind I would swim that river," she said to a friend, "and I did it." Ktrark Rock. The Davis Company has completed its labors of boring for rock on the public building site, at the corner of Sixteenth street and Second avenue. Eight holes were bored, one at each corner and the other four at inter mediate points. Seven of the holes produced rock at a depth of between 10 and 11 feet, but the hole bored on the southeast corner did not pro duce any rock until it was sunk 21 feet below the surface. At a depth of about 11 feet gravel was struck, and after going through this for about four feet fire clay of the hard est kind was found for a depth of fullv six feet. It is the opinion of Mr. Davis that it is not an impossi ble matter to build upon the tire clay as it is nearly as hard as the rock. The Kentucky Kind of V omaa. Mrs. W. E. McPhearson, wife of our town marshal, was passing the skirt of a wood a few days ago and was con fronted by a rattlesnake immediately in her pathway. His snukeship instinctive ly gave the usual signal warning with his rattles, coiled himself up and ele vated his head preparatory to battle. The brave little woman, instead of screaming like a wildcat and fainting away, as many women do when they see a mouse on the floor, seized the first weapon she oonld lay her hands on and opened the battle and soon dispatched the brute. She then deliberately took out her pocketknife, and as dexterously as a skilled h miter would skin a doer took off his hide and brought it home with her and stuffed it with bran, and now has it on exhibition at her resi dence. The snake was of tho yellow spe cies, measured nearly 5 feet in length and had nine rattles aud a button. Ua ael Green (Ky.) Herald.
