Congress meets one week from today and so far there has heen no movement on the part of those who are to go to Washington from the three cilies to use their efforts to get the Hennepin mens-, tire through.

A meeting was held in the First Na tional bank in Moline at 4 o'clock this afternoon, to take action so far as that city is concerned. A Fatal Fall.

EXTREMELY LOW. Thf Ktar of the .fXimlmippl Within Tn larhe f the lw ftair Mark. The river is still declining, and if it continues to fall at the present rate it will not take a freeze-up to drive the ferry Spencer into winter quarters, for every morning Captain Cameron and his crew find it necessary to drag the docks on each side of the river farther out and nearer to each other, so that after awhile there will be no difficulty io stepping from one to the other. The water is now lower man it has been since 1864. Last sum mer it reached a foot above the low w ater mark, hut today it is within two inches of that mark and still going down . The bars in front of the city would be tntire ly bare, but for the ice and snow that cover them. The cause of this unusual decline is attributed to the extremely low stage ot the water when the river closed above, and the stoppage of water which is taken by the formation of the ice, pre venting the ordinary flow of water. It would not be surprising if the ferry would be obliged to withdraw at any time. as the low water makes it difficult in reaehmg the landing on ibis side, as well as iu get ting away from it, the bars being just above Eighteenth street. Oue still night with the mercury below xero would close the river at this point. Considers ble flottliiiu ice is seen in the river every day but this is uot of sufficient tfiickni-ss to impede navigation unless colder weath er comes. Preparations are made whi n the ferry ties up each nitjht to seek the ice haiboi at a minute's notice should a sudden change in the timierature ntvur A CHECKER CONTEST.

I nm-t tell you soiiH-tbiiu; that happened once in a inunii v town where dishonesty in the educated elnsses is not so sale as it is in cities. A jail 1 kneiv mas one tiay raiiaack lng an old dimer cheat and found among other things long laid by an old-faahioned white lace vail. It was a about a yard and one-quarter in length and was quite a yard wide. The design was heavy and rieh along the edge, and the rest "was "sprigged" with small orange buds. It had been tlie wedding veil of some am -octrois. The fa was beauti fully fine old Brussels, and, of course, was aluable. The girl was so delighted to find it, rolled up among a l4 of old linen, that she impeiuoii-ly dragged it out of the chest, and in doing so caught one comer of it on a ii rcb'hi-d nail that lurked unseen inside the big box. However, she darned it so skillfully that it hardly showed, and alie used to wear this veil as a liehu, and lovely it looked. One very hot day, at a garden party, she left it in the liedroom of hiT hostess, and, coming up to get it in the evening, could not thai it any where. It had disappeared, and, though she was verv aorry just at first, she soon loixotall about it, as girls will. She married and went to India with her husband. Her mother left the village. But last year, when niy old 1'i-iend was home with her hus band on i in lough, ihev met aorue old ac-qiiaiiitain-es n ho bad a place near their for mer home, and, Mug asked to go aud stay with them, !lie n-cepted.. On the very evening ol llnii- arrival there was an ama teur concert got up by the musical people about, and, of course, every one went, Jaanie and her husband among tlie rest They sat immediately liehind a girl whom Jeanie had known formerly, and whom she recog nized with pleasure, only waiting for a pause in the iierformance to attract her attention. This, however, she did very effectually be fore any pause came. In a very piano part of tlie solo that was Wing sung, a loud whisper rang quite au dibly through the room. This was Jeanie, who had found her long lost veil, recognised lier own dainty little stitches, and uttered aloud, "My dam!" The girl before her turned round, a il.d every one. and when she saw Jeanie she grew as white as the lace itself. You see. she had thought hernelf quite safe in wearing it after that long time, thinking Jeanie was ui India What must she have felt when site turned round and sa w her sit ting lieside her f The veil was restored next day, and aome plausible explanation given which Jeanie feigned to believe sati-afctory. A woman may forget her own child -women often do; but what woman could forget ber own dam! Iinrfon Truth. THfr'SK SHE KOI.IU FMTK.
