It Maddened Him. The editor of a country exchange lives in a house located between a Methodist church and a dance hall. One night last week there was a meeting at the church hnl a dance at the hall; it being quite comfortable out of dooTS, the editor sat on the verand and took in the silua tion. jotting down the following which he heard: "Let us pray all sa'ute wc beseech Thee to join bands and draw near circle to the left listen to us first four forward and back as we all promenade kneel before Thee and balance all present our petition grand right and left for Christ's sake scat your partners." The edilor wa: more than saddened at the degeneracy of the village and went off and joined a base ball club in order to be neutral. Oleo. The number of farmeis who are be caught up under the oleomargarine law, prompts a Scott county farmer to sa "Many of the farmers who have been howling about bogus butter and oleomar garine are the very lirsi to be spotted by the new law. They object to factories using beef suet and making an imitaiiun butter, yet llier will make an infinitely worse article, by mixing h'.g's lard and tallow with their butter, and tell n as genuine. So, too, nearly all the fnrmers in the land, fur years past, have persisted in using a "butter color" to make their cheap grade, white, greasy butter as sumes a golden hue. This is downright dishonesty. It takes extra care of stock, food, miik, cream aid butter, to produce a clean, sweet, yellow, gilt-edged butter, and the farmer's family who are too care less, lazy aud shiftless to make good but ter should not be allowed to color it with any material, however harmless, and palm it oil as a first-class article."

Moline Citizen Meet to Consider the Hennepin AetlTe tttepa to e Taken. A conference of Moline Citizens was held in the parlors of the First National bank at Moline at 5 o'clock yesterday afs ternoon. Judge J. M. Gould was elected chairman, and Andrew Anderson was made secretary. Mr. C. H. Deere related the work of the meeting called by Con gressman Murphy at Davenport recently, and Mr. Morris Rosenficld told of his be ing present at the ctual meeting at Chicago the other day, and noted the ab sence of the Chicago congressmen from that meeting. Congressman Murphy was present and bad expressed his condemna tion of the citizens of Chicago for the lack of interest in this important project. Mr. Eugene Lewis next spoke. It was his opinion that Maj. Benyuard was hostile to the Illinois A Michigan Canal, and ap peared to favor an improvement of the Illinois river to Joliet and thence by the Des Plaincs to the lake. Mr. C. H. Deere emphasized the neces sity of having Moline ably represented at Washington this winter in order that its true interests might be properly guarded tie suggested the appointment ol a com mittee of three to be in Washington when the bill comes up. It was staled upon good authority that an eastern con gressman had several appropriation bills of his own with which to head off anv movement on the part of the canal pro jectors coming up under the head of un finished business. Mr. Lewis, who had made this statement, believed there was little hope for Mr. Murphy's (lower routel in the early part of the session at least Considerable discussion followed, and tinally an executive committee, composed of Messrs. Lewis, Rosenlield and Deere was appointed, with power to select some one to represent Moiine in Washington, and if it was thought best lo call another meeting of the citizens at a future date. Tnere seemed to be a general feeling in favor of Mr. Lewis being present, if no one else went. It was stated tbat there was on hand $22.75 of the old fund, and on motion, Judc Gould, Capt. Bennett and A. L. Carson were constituted a committee to solicit funds lo cover the expenses of the city's delegates to Washington. The . action of this meeting should arouse the people of Rock Island to inoie seedy action than ever before. The en tire proceediugs of last night's confer ence in the First National bank in Moline, point iu one way, and in one way only, the expression made that a certain gentle man from that city must go at all haz zanls, reflecting a determination to look after something other than the canal it self. Johu C. Dore, of Chicago, and other Hennepin workers are in Washington. Thev will seek an interview with the president to urge tbat some portion of his annual message be given to the Uennc pin canal as a great national work wor thy the careful attention of congress. If they cannot get a positive endorsement of the project they would like at least to have some reference made to it. Con gressman Lswler arrived Monday chiefly to back up the business men's delegation. Congressman Murphy is also on hand, and the two congressmen wilt try to get the presidential ear for the Hennepiners. There is a suspicion, however, that the message is in such an advanced stage of composition that Mr. Cleveland will not rind a chance to squeeze in anv recom mendation for the canal. The friends of the enterprise will then have to bring their oatteiies to bear directly on congress Kill Vve'R Boyhood. If I was a boy again, endowed with the same wild passion for plucking waterm-1 ons in the dark of the moon, writes ISill Nye in the 3oston Givbe, I would no doubt fall a victim to tbat overmastering passion as I did before, but looking jit it as I do now, I would be wiser. Boys cannot, however, nave tne mature judg ment of manhood without the experience and the rheumatism that go with it. So it is better tbat in our childhood we may be able to eat a raw turnip with safety, and know something later on in life. I notice a great change in myself while comparing my presentcondition with that of joyous boyhood. Then I had no sense, but I had a good digestion. Now I haven't evpn the digestion. The hurrying years have cavorted over my sunny nead till they have worn it smooth, but tbey have left a good deal yet for me to learn. I am still engaged in learning during the day and putting arnica on my experience at nigbt. Childhood is said to tie the most glad some period in our lives, and in some re spects this statement may be regarded as reliable, but it is not all jov. 1 have bad just as much fun in late years as I did in boyhood, though the people with whom I have been thrown in contact claim that ineir experience has been different. I hope they- do not mean anything oersonal by that. I do sometimes wish that I could be a boy again, but I smother that wish on account of my parents. What they need most is rest and change of scene. They sun enjoy cnuaren, dui iney would like a chance to select the children with wiium they associate. My parents were blessed with live bright eyed and beautiful little boys, three of whom grew up. and by tbat meaus became adults. I am in that con duion myself. I was the eldest of the familv, with the exception of my parents I am still tbat way. My early life was rather tempestous in places, occasionally flecked with sunshine, but more frequent ly witn retrinulion. 1 was not a very good roadster when young, and so retri bution was most always just in the act i overtaking me. While outraged juslioB, was getting in its work on me, the otbfcr boys escaped through a small aperture? in the fence. To th Fatroni of I. Iubsrman. The books and accounts of I.

The play was "The Danites," and it was put on in as line style as any troupe has presented it here before. W. E. Stevens is a strong actor, and Miss Jessie Fre mont Stevens is an accomplished little actress, who wins admiration from the moment she puts her foot upon the stage. Edwin Haskell and Miss Emma Gates are also good in their parts, and the entire caste was far above the average. I he comnauv is deserving of much better support than it is receiving. The band and orchestra is one of the best tbat has ever appeared in Harper's theatre. Tonight "The Home Wreck" or "Rich ard Lancaster's Love." is to be presented with the company's own special scenery. This is one of Mr. Stevens' beat plays. The play springs from "Enoch Arden," and sb given by the Stevens company with its 6cenery. is equal lo Heme's "Hearts of Oak," or any of the standard price entertainments.

Following tbe snow storm which pre vailed all day yesterday, the severity of the winter season set in in tbe evening. During the night the wind switched around lo the northwest, and tbe first icy blast from the cold regions came suddenly but with evident inteution to stay. The mercury darted down to zero, and four below. At 6 o'clock this morning the thermometer registered at two below, and there has been little variation from Ibis all day At 0 o clock this morning it Deeauin ap parent that the ferry bad better be taken into a place of safety. The ice at tbat time was not so thick in the channel, but Watchman Staassen had noticed the for mation of the fiigid suhstance.during tbe night, and fears entered Capt. Cameron's mind lest the ice should form below and shut out bis passage to the harbor when it became neeessaiy to go. He resolved therefore to seek the boatyards immedi ately, and at ten minutes past six the Spencer steamed olf down stream to the ferry compauy's harbor below the city. This afternoun then is abundance of mating ice iu the river, and with a con tinuation of Ibis weather and the present low watcr.the river will be closed entirely by tomorrow night. The boat went down on December 6 last year, nearly a week later than this, but came out and resumed trips for a short time January 2, and again returned to winter quarters, coming out the second time the first of March. Trains weie dtluyed but little in conse quence of the storm, the Si. Paul trains and the C , B. & Q., aud C, R.

To the absolute safely of a government bond, is added a profit far iu excess of rate of interest which can be obtained on any safe loan. Ip Kansas and Neb raska especially lauds are raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stabiiitv. The good season anil the great tide of iinmis gration into these stales has made invest meut there doubly safe ami desirable. The climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kausas, fiee as it is from the long ngourous cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these slates. To the far mer they hold oul special inducements. Cheap land, easy term of pun-haw, good markets and varied products eoame him to own his farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is icquired lo pay rent for the land be occupies here, or the iulcrest on the money be has invested in it. If you arc looking for a safe place to invest money, where it will pay you a large and sure profit, or if you are a farm er and want a farm of your own, call on me and see what 1 have to offer.

But sometimes, wlien philosophers are hard put to it, and forced to take their meal in the canoe, the pemmiean is eaten raw; chopped out of the bag with a hatchet, and acconiinied simply by the biscuit, which has received the sobri quet of "K"d river granite.'1 These wonder ful objects, as large as sea biscuit, are nt least three-quarters of an inch in thi- kin's, and against them the naturalist's genlopical ham mer is always brought into n-tuuMtion. But tbe "inlideldish," as nmsscau is termed, is by (vmiarison with the others jialatable, though it is even then imiKissible to so dis guise it as to avoid tbe suggestion of tallow candles; and this and the leathery, or india rubber, structure oC the meat are its chief disqualifications. Hut even roussrau may lose its charms when t aken as a steady diet three times a day for weeks, especially when it is served in a frying ian, and, breakfast or dinner over, one sees t he remnants with the beef or pork all hustled together in the boil ing kettle; the biscuit, broken bannocks and unwashed cups placed in the bread bag; the plates, knives and forks tossed into the meat dish; and all, combined in the ample folds of an old bit of gunuy cloth, which has served daily at once as dishcloth and tablecloth, thrown into the canoe to rest until tbe next meal, when at last Billy tin-l time to wash the dishes the tublechith never.
