The Inducement. The State Leader says that 6S9 people have joined the temperance movement and donned the "blue ribbon" in Des Moines within one week. This can only be accounted for from the fact that whisky costs 20 cents a drink in that city and very poor whisky at that. Now don't any ot vou Les JMoraes iellow9 ask us how we know. Don t Believe It. There are a good many people who seem to be "down on" the young man who is acting as street commissioner and are con tinually finding fault at his incompetency. This is very unkind. They say the council has. when there was anything to do, em ployed and paid for an assistant for him; and now, they say that the city pays all his street car fare. This is the unkindest cut of all, and we don't believe it. Why should the city pay for his rides? Personal. Maj. J. M. Beardsley is in Chicago- business in the U. S. court. Hon. Marcus Dunlap, of Iowa City is in the city, a guest at the Harper House. James Donaldson, one of the wealthy farmers of this county, is registered at the Rock Island House. Daniel Montgomery, of Pteynolds, a lead ing stock raiser of this Eectioo, is Btopping at the Taylor House. B. R. Cable is in Indianapolis on busi ness connected with his railroad. J. II.

Kinsey, of Denver, Col., oao of the largest wholesale dealers in the lar west, is in the city, a guest of Dr. Magill. Mr. Kinsey was formerly a resi dent ol Henry county, but has been in Colorado fifteen years. ' 'How large was Alexander" '"Tnat people called him groat." If there is one thing more than another that will produce a feeling of peaceful satis faction in the breast of a city official, it is to have a proper appreciation of his own importance, io know that as he marches along tho street with the working tools of his office in his hands the insignia of rank that littlo children hush and in a whisper murmer ' he's the superintendent." If report be true, this individual overstepped his authority when he said to the workmen in the Rock Island House barber shoo "You cannot get a plumber in this city to make those connections." Just sol Mr. Superintendent. But did it ever occur to you that yours is an assumed honor? That in no place on the records of the city coun cu are you named superintendent. Tis a pleasing honor, a satisfaction, and a com tort to sign some title to your name and wo would not destroy the happy illusion but in future keep within the iprovince of the work for which you draw your monthly Pay.

Paul pass. Mr. M. was not to be bull dozed; he took Eli by the collar and was about to eject him from the train when Eli "put up the ready." Savana Times, A benevolent grocer, seeing a skele ton of a cat slink across the shoo, bawled out to his boy: "Didn't I tell you to teed that cat a nound of beef a day till she fattened up?" "You did. and I gave her a pound this morning." "You did, eh? Gimme that cat." The cat was placed upon the scales and found to weigh exactly a pound. "All right, my boy, said the grocer; "there's your pound of beef, but wnero's your cat?" Some incautious temperance lecturer has intimated that the Cambridge ladies are not all models of temperance, and the gallant Prarie Chief comes to their rescue as follows: Who are those women of Cambridge that are in the habit of using strong drink r is a question that has fre quently been asted during the past week. It there are any, they are not generally known, and we are of the opinion that the assertion is a base slander.

Eklund don't have to advertise his veracity under the head of "solid truths. because the .people know he sells goods just as represented, and he challenges other dealers to duplicate his prices in the three cities. Read these figures and be convinced. This is no laimbug announce ment, but a solid tact. He is selling ladies solid gold band rings at SI, child ren's at 25 cents, gentlemen's solid gold. real stone cameo rings at $3.59, ladies' solid gold cameo seta, $7.50: ladies' solid gold neck chains $4.5, misses $2.5; ladies solid gold guard chains $20; ladies solid cold, patent lever watches $18; gentlemen's solid gold cased Elgin watches, $29 silver cased $9; ladies' solid gold sets of jewelry $4.75, plated 85 cents; solid gold front, misses' sets $1.25, ladies' cuff pins 75 cents, and gentlemen's cuff but tons $1; silver thimble 5 cents; silver plated casters $1.50, sets of teaspoons $1.25, tablespoons $2,75, forks $2.75, and napkin rings 15 cents each; triple plated knives $2 50 and desert knives $2.25 per serT Indisputable Evidence! I. Epstein don't have ta publish a"price list of "snide goods" at seemingly low figures in order to attract customers. His prices are to low, and his goods so far superior to others, that persons visiting his store readily discern the difference and seldom leave without purchasing. He don't advertise solid gold watches at $18, because the honest goods cannot be sold for that money, and he don't keep "snide stock"' on hand. Hh is, however, selling genuine goods at prices which cannot be duplicated this side or Chicago. He buys strictly for cash and of the manufacturers direct. He don t eeleot his stock trom drummers' samples, representing third class houses but direct from first hands, thereby saving hit customers the usual profits made by middlemen. Lpstein s reputation is too well known to need any comment. His business enterprise is not an experiment, but an established fact. Neither does he go around town whining about hard times. He believes in driving business, and when other dealers are whitling chips, or looking down their nose, he is kept busy waiting on customers. He claims to haye and is prepared to prove that his stock is the largest and most completf in the city. All goodf first class; no "snide Btock,"' but genuine articles which are sold as low as other dealers sell the "'mixed sundries." A trial will convince the most skeptical that the place to get real bargains, and first class goods is Epstein's, Star Block, llock Island.

He becomes more and more exhausted in his struggles to keep his head above the waters. It he could make up his mind to drop a part of his load, he could save a part and gain the shore. But pride aud greed conrpel him to hold on, and he finally goes to the bottom. So in bankruptcy. A iurmer or business man gets into deep water. He cannot bear the thought of losing a part of his possessions. and so he struggles on and on, hoping finally to reach solid ground and save all. But be fails in the contest and goes down a bankrupt Tbey try to bridge over the deep place by borrowing. Such contri vances are too often only rotten affairs that only put off the evil day, and make the final catastrophe only the more complete. The sure plan, if your load is too heavy, is manfully to drop part of it, and pick it up some other time if you can. Now is the Time to Subscribe to Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly.
