Last year the fleet took 91.701 skins. A 'sciETr note" in a Spartans. cure, ra., newspaper tens oi a gin of that town who recently split a cord of wood in less than an hour. The information is added that she does not split wood for a living, either. PiTTtnuKU, Pa., gave 22,000 repub lican majority tnree weeks ago, ana now there is a tremendous aprising there against the local republican ring. This looks like another case of locking the stable after the horse has been stolen. Marrlsom With ITaaalmlty. St Loola Rapubllc. Unless the indicatlons'are all awry, William K. Morrison will be the unanimous choice of the democrats for president when the national con- vention convenes. Ho matter how democrats may be divided on other questions, there is a 'singular unani mity among them as to the expedi ency and propriety of making Col. Morrison the standard bearer of the party next year. Sound money men and radical silverites sink their differences when the question of se- lecting s presidential nominee is broached. Morrison has no literary nureau, nor is there an organization in his interest. The movement seems to be spontaneous, and to be encouraged from all sections of the countrv. The sound money men from Kew York and New England, the sound money men and the radi cal silverites from the south, the ex treme free coinage and the sound money men from the west, all de clare that they can support Morrison, and that he can poll the full party sirengm. in tact there is nobody else talked of for the democratic pres idential nomination. Men who are au thorized to speak for Mr. Whitney say that he is not a candidate. There is nothing in the talk of a third term for Cleveland. The president never countenanced the .agitation connect ing him with a third term of the presidency. Mr. Carlisle has many admirers, but there seems to be i feeling that because of the result of the recent election in Kentucky, Mr. Carlisle is no longer an availability. Occasionally extreme free coinage men declare that one of their school must be nominated, but in the next breath he will admit that Morrison would be entirely satisfactory, and would receive the full party vote, notwithstanding his attitude on the money question. The unanimity of democratic feeling upon this subject is attracting much attention, and is considered rather ominous by the republicans. Let two democrats meet ia the corridors of a hotel, or on the street, and one ask the other: Whom do the democrats in your region want for president?" The in variable reply will be, Colonel Mor rison." The consensus of opinion has been so centralised on Morrison Forty Years a, Slave. A Minister Used Tobacco Two-Score Years Was Cured by "Baco Cura" and Gained SO Ponnds. Clatto:. Nevada Co Ark- Jan. 88, 95. Eureka Chemical A Manufacturing Co 1m I'nww.

For 15 years I tried to quit, but couldn't I took various remedies, amonc others "No-To-Bnc," "Tlw Indian Tobacco Antidote," Double Chloride of tiold." etc, etc- but none of tliena did me the least bit of good. Finally, however, 1 purchased a box of your BacCuro," and it has entirely cured me of the habit In all its forms, and l have in creased 80 pounds Id weight and am re lieved from all the numerous aches and paina of body and mind.

La Crosse, Wis. dWlffit CEjEa that at this time nearly all the dem ocrats in Washington feel that he will be nominated by acclamation. The republicans do not approve of mis uusninuij among me uemo crats. They feel that with the'dem ocrats united and enthusiastic in sup. pori oi a canaiaaie.approvea Dy all the party, republican dreams of empire next year might have been in vain. Republican hopes of victory next year-have been based largely on an ticipation of democratic abstention from the polls. But when republi cans hear democrats of all shades of belief declaring that Morrison would be satisfactory to all the party, they begin to feci that there will be an old-fashioned political battle next year, no walk-over, no landslide, and the issue rather doubtful. The ex treme free coinage men in the demo cratic party are much more moderate than they were when the Fifty-third congress adjourned. Publicly they still talk of nominating a free coinage man, and putting a free coinage Plank in the democratic platform, rivately they admit that the chances of the free coisage men controlling the national convention are now very slim and getting slimmer weekly. Three extreme free coinage demo cratic senators with whom I have con versed duringthe past week say they will be satisfied with a declaration in favor of bimetallism and will be will ing to ignore the question of ratio. On the other hand, the republican free coinage men seem to be becom ing more aggressive. They claim that the republicans cannot elect their candidate without the electoral votes of the western mining states, and that these votes will not be given to any man running on a "gold bug" filatform. In fact, in a general way t might be said that the democrats here are preparing to light the com mon enemy and cease lighting among themselves. The western republi cans indicate that they are more de sirous of a first class family feud among themselves than an open bat tle with the democrats. In fact, the republican leaders are expecting mat iney win nave more ditucuity in harmonizing conflicting views and conflicting ambitions during the en suing congress than at any time since Blaine and Conkling ceased to be factors in republican leadership. Clergy Parmlta for 1X96. An entirely new agreement with respect to half-fare permits for the year 1896 has been adopted by all lines in the Western Passenger asso ciation territory, under which cler gymen and others entitled to half fare privileges under the rules will make but one application and re ceive a single permit which will be good over all lines party to said gov ernment. As all permits for the entire terri tory comprised in the Western Pas senger association will be issued by Chairman Caldwell at Chicago, it is recommended that application be made at once to the undersigned if it is desired that permits be in the hands of applicants by the first of the year. k. &txkholse.

Haw of Bllaeollaacoaa lotorast Froaa tka Cppar Ea. Jostra, Nov. 26. The coward who attacked Mr. and Mrs. Brown and daughters has eluded his pursuers up to this writing. The Joslin creamery now only runs four days in the week Mon day, Wednesday, Friday and Satur day. Otto Nold, son of Henry Nold. who has been attending a medical college in Tennessee, not feeling very well, has returned home for the winter. The counters and shelving of W. H. Whitesides' new store are about all in. They are now pntting on the finishing touches, and the building will soon be ready for occupancy. lbe bovs oi Joslin have adopted a new method of hunting rabbits. They set a step-ladder in the center of a cornfield. ' One boy with a gun mounts and takes a position on the top while the others go to the out skirts of the field and drive the rab bits toward the center. It is claimed that the boy with the gun can see rabbits coming for 40 rods. Thursday evening last the Wood men of Joslin dedicated their hall with an oyster supper and festival. There were upwards of 200 in attend ance. Mrs. S. S. Beal wishes me to state that her shawl was exchanged for one which has been left at Mr. Donnahey's store. Mrs. Walker found a white silk neck scarf, which has been left at the same place for identification. James Donnhoo lost his pocketbook which contained sev eral hundred dollars of deposited cnccKs. it was picked up by a little girl and returned to him. I notice that it is a frequently ex pressed opinion in farm journals that the hay crop of the northwest is such that the farmer who has plenty of hay and good roads to market, will think himself in good luck towards spring. farmers are now making the grand discovery that they are embarrassed more by the bulk of their products, than by the bulk of their cash, even if that cash should happen to be 50 cent dollars. J.hink what it means to western growers when potatoes only bring 25 cents per bushel in the eastern states, when out of this comes lour cents a bushel commis sion, besides the freight. Sunday last Mrs. Elizabeth Will iams had just returned home from a visit to Mrs. Wesley Hanna when she was suddenly taken sick and fell to the floor. Her friends worked with her for some time and finally thought she was dead. However, they sent ior ur. cooker ana she tonally rallied and is now some better. The doctor said it was an affection of the heart. The funeral of Mrs. Wesley Hanna was held at the residence and was conducted by the Rev. Thompson, of the Methodist church. The Zuma choir rendered efficient service by singing three select pieces. The minis! ter stated that Mrs. Hanna was born Oct. 24, 1818. came to Rock Island county in 1849, was married Oct. 10, 1850, died Nov. 24 at the age of 77 years and one month. The minister in his remarks stated that he had never visited any one from whom ' he had received more spiritual assist ance than he had from Sister Hanna, who had kept close to the church for 60 years. The minister did not take a text nor preach a sermon, but closed a very appropriate address with the following wprds: "Let ns all live with the soul object in view. to leave the world better than we found it." D. Adams, A. G. Brew, ster, C. Osborn, W. Sheppard, J. Guthrie and W.
