One of oar leading barristers re ceived a, letter a few mornings ago from a law-made widow, and the contents of the epistle have been causing him no little amount of wor ry and embarrassment ever since. Although, to jadge Irom his own ex pressions, he entertains anything bat affection for her. not bavin? an? dealings with her other than of a legal nature, she communicates to him in language expressive of love and admiration that she is over joyed with his acknowledgment of that which she has so long sought his love. He cannot understand it, and furthermore is very indignant that she should so bodlv attempt to alienate his affections, especially when he was not even aware of the existence of any feeling of seriousness on her part. o matter what his views and feelings toward her are. she is negotiating apparently for a matrimonial deal, regardless of th fluctuations of tho ho!y market. It may be possible that he has unknow ingly tampered with her little heart nut wnat prompted ner in stating that he had at last acknowledged his warm feelings for her, is what has set him to thinking. He received the letter the day after he had called at her bouse at her request to draw up a will, which was duly executed n tne presence 01 two witnesses. The woman gave as her reason for making the will that she was go ing away the following day on a visit. She went, and the letter came. Some time ago she came to him with a tale of domestic unpleasantness, the principal cause of which was her husband, who was nnjust and un worthy the companionship of a faith ful wife. She wanted their matri monial tie severed. This much her counsel succeeded in, to her satisfac tion, informing her after the grant ing of the decree, that legal services were ne longer required. Afterward she began making frequent calls at his office, always having some unim portant mission to perform, so the at torney says. Her calls became so numerous, although she was assured they were unnecessary, as to cause him .very much annoyance. She un doubtedly admired him to such ex tent for invalidating the miserable life which she had so many years en dared, that she seriously considered a reciprocation of her feelings, which might be made possible by constant companionship. Probably she con sidered his response to ner request to call at her house an acknowledg ment, whereas the barrister went only as a matter ol professional call ing. A DHHWUIMSnHi At the northwest corner of Spencer square there is a pool 01 siusn ana water which has been homing form there during the past week, being re sponsible lr more than one vi tiation of the strictlr moral code. A gentle. man who resides up town had closer relations with this slushy pool the other afternoon, when he absorbed a considerable quantity of the water ith the south end of his pantaloons. The wind was blowing rather strong, and when in front of the Harper bouse, removed his hat, and sent it rolling along in the mad. He started on a run after his top protector, and bad proceeded but a short distance when a friend called at him to stop. He did not slacken his gait, but rubber-necked, as some call it, when about to cross the pool of water. He slipped, bis pedal ex tremities suddenly started heaven- ward, and his soul went in the di rection of well, anyway, he came down with a thud in the slush, in which he slipped and wallowed lor a few seconds, very muib to the amusement of those who witnessed his unfortunate downfall. He con soled bis feelings by murmuring a sebtence from the New Testament Of coarse, he didn't swear. Picking up his hat, he started homeward with a little of Nineteenth street's watered real estate on his back. In falling a diamond-shaped piece was torn from the bosom of his pants. and when he seats himself now he prefers a cushioned chair. . Tkt Can Was Mat BBectlve. When the Morrell Liquor Cure company opened an omce in nock Island a couple of years ago, one 01 oar business men, who lor years bad been a slave to spirited extracts, concluded to banish his boozv ological cravings and take treat ment. He submitted to the various doctorings necessary to rid him of his old habit, but without avail. He would take a little snake-weed juice just for an appetite tester, and found that the cure was doing little toward divorcing him from his morning morning. Thus satisfied in his opin ion that the cure was not fruitful of the desired results, he vowed he would not remit the stipulated fee, bill for which he receives once month. The statement demands payment for the rendition of profes sional services. The arrival 01 tne bill is the signal for his monthly pe riodical. - Members of the democratic city committee are requested to meet at Turner hall Wednesday evening, Feb. 27. at e clock.

The exercises at Angustana col lege yesterday afternoon in honor of Washington's birthday, were well at tended and were of an appropriate and patriotic nature- The Students' onion had charge. President J. . Westerlund presiding. The program opened -with an overture by the An gustana orchestra, louowea oy scrip tural reading. and prayer by Presi dent Olsson, and the singing by the male quartet 01 America." Wil liam Jackson was ' then intro duced as orator of - the day, and it proved one of the distin guished citizen's most eloquent and patriotic efforts. uevotea as it was to the topic to the father of the republic, whose memory was so handsomely honored, the speaker drew from the noble life inspiring lessons app'icable to our every day life, the inculcation 01 moral and re ligious principles in the youthful mind, from which were bound to spring useful, honorable and patriotic lives. 1 be most of Washington s ca reer was know to history. His pub lic services in war and in state were known. It would serve no good purpose to recall them, but it was certain of his acts that re flected, more the true character of the man representing those principles which were worthy of emulation. The farewell address of the first president before retiring from the hief magistracy of the nation he had founded was taken op and from it were drawn the duties the citizens of today owe to the republic. The dif- lerence between liberty and license was brought out. Every citizen should obey the laws enacted by the tuthorlties constituted bv the people tor that purpose, lo obey laws until they are abolished that is, the re ligion of politics, and morality and canscience should regulate all we do as citizens. At the conc.nsion of his address, Mr. Jackson was presented by the students with a beautiful boa quet. A tolo by Kt loreen, a song bv the chorus and a selection by the orchestra concluded the exercises: At taa First M. E. Cbarca. A most delightful Washington en tertainment was given last evening at the First M. E. church by the Young Ladies1 Home Mission society. 1 be church was tastefully decorated with flags, hatchets, flowers and yel low tarlaton. and the young ladies wore as their Badge a small hatchet and knot of yllow ribbon. The pro gram was as follows: . a snd March 8 young ladies In Mar.ba Wash- ugion costume. Piano solo...

Tea, coffee and wafers were served, and the enter tainment was closed by a repetition of the grand march and the render ing of Yankee Doodle by the orches tra, which was most enthusiastically recalled. Parties. The dancing party given by the gentlemen pupils of Prof. Clendenin's class at K. f. ball last evening was largely attended by tn-city young people, who participated In an evening's festivities the pleasure of which will be long remem bered. Schillinger's orchestra dis coursed enchanting music, to the sweet strains of which the merrv. makers danced away the hoars only too quickly. Armory ball presented a pretty scene last evening, the occasion be ing the annual dance of the Islaud City lodge, No. 11, B. of R. T. The decorations were unique and appro priate. Drooping from the ceiling bung bunting of varied bue, while on the side walls were nice designs. About one hundred couples attended tie affair, which was a very enjoya ble ana mceiy arranged one, indeed. Delightful music was furnished by Bleuer's orchestra. Chlckaa Pta Soeasbla. Notwithstanding the bad walking. a large crowd attended the chicken pie supper Friday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. irvin in South Heights.

As to That Recent Visit ofC, 8. & Q. Officials. SAID TO BE OF DCF0&TAX0E. Hay Mama CaK-af-a ;.T rales, ae4 Mayas Something- Bias Caaaria- la Postal CI ha Ota Haws Caaasralaa taa The visit Thursday to Rock Island of the chief officials of the Burlington system, the beads of the managerial. operating, traffic and passenger de partments has lea to many surmises as to what was at the bottom of it. That the trip was important is evinced by the fact that Rock Island was entirely its objective point. The party came out from Chicago,' picked np the division omciaia on tne way. and after spending the day in Rock Island, returned direct to Chi. cago. Down at the Burlington de pot they say that it was purely a so cial call and an inspection ox proper ty here. That the officials did go over everything pretty thoroughly even to the law. department, and that they aid improve the opportunity to meet many of our cit zens, is not to be disputed, but all this is evidence that there my be something in the wind. Whether it be the establish ment of the long-discussed train ser vice to Chicago, or the onion depot. or something else, is a matter of con jecture. The Burlington has been boldly cutting inti the Rock Island's Des Moines and Chicago business, as stated last week. Perhaps it pro poses to do the same thing as be tween Rock Island and Chicago.
