The Reindeer is to be launched in
the packet business between Clinton
and Dubuque. The same people who
are running the Long: and Board man
are back of the enterprise, the inten
sion oeing to connect up with the
craft running between Kock Island
A through packet from Rock Island
and Davenport to Dubuque would
undoubtedly prove a successful ven
ture. In former days the Josephine
of the Diamond Jo line made tri
weekly trips and did a successful
business. II ibe W. J.
Young, Jr., can do a thriv
ing tri-weekly trade between here
and Burlington a boat between here
and the Key city ought to. Here is
something ior capt Streckfus to
think about. With his two boats he
could do a daily packet business,
making C.inton simply a way sta
tion. The only difference would be
that we would have one of Capt.
Streckfus' boats here a day instead
of two, or he might put one in the
through trade to Dubuqne and let
the other run as now, bringing the
Dubuque one here every other day.
The Belle Mac came down with 16
strings of logs.
Boats up were the Quickstep, Bella
Mic, Long and Winona.
The Verne Swain and Board man
were in and out of port.
The water is falling at St. Panl
and Kock Island with slight rises at
intermediate points. It is also ris
ing at St. Louis. The forecast says
that during the next 21 hours the
river will fall slightly from St. Paul
to Keed's Landing and remain about
stationary at LaCrcsse; rise from one
to two-tenths from McGregor to Du
buque and remain stationary at Rock

Yesterday J. P. Van Patten re
ceived a letter from his son, John
Van Patten, who in company with
Mr. Dusinberre, of K ek Island, is
bound for England, whero they will
indulge in a 6 weeks' bicycle tour,
dated on board tbo steamer Van
Couvcr, Quebec. It seems the gen
tlemen started from Montreal on the
steamer bound for K jglaud. but a
collision disabled the Van Couver
and flic was compelled to put back
to Quebec for repairs. Messrs. Van
Patten and Dusinberre will be com
pelled to spend most of the week in
Quebec and will make the trip to
England on the steamer Scotsman.
They will be absent until Nov. 1.

Dr. George Merryman. according
to the Moline Mail, 'wiped up the
earth" with a man at Cordova Satur
day. The fellow was a pugilist from
a neighboring town who was at Cor
dova playing ball. He met the doc
tor in a business place and walking
up to him punched him in the ribs.
But that was about the last he knew.
Dr. Merryman knocked him off his
feet and struck him three more blows
in quick succession before he reached
the ground. He was the wor-t nl
up man that ever struck the upper
Kew Fans-led Wheel.
J. K. Bush, of Racine, brought to
town last evening a new model for a
bioycle from which he had one made
especially for his use. The novelty
is not so much in the design as
in the material, which is for the
rasi part hard wood. For durabil
ity, strength and elasticity Mr. Bush
savs that wood is intwrior tn nintal
fud that the coming bicycle maker
will so demonstrate.
