Fortni e In a Taper Weight.
A Moline paper recently published
a letter which conveyed the informa
tion that a fortune was awaiting the
possessor o ' a certain paper weight
of which only a single duplicate was
in existence. Now it seems that the
paper weight has turned up in Mo-1
line in tosscsion of Mrs. Mary
Beale. Mrs. Beale has been; called
.upon by W. H. Buford, of Si. Louis,
w ho had wi .h him an exact duplicate
of her paper weight, which he said
was left in bis father's bank. As the
man who wrote the letter previously
published in the Dispatch did not
call on Mrs. Beale. she wrote to the
national banks in St. Louis in regard
to the matter and these letters Mr.
Buford had with him. The story of
the weight is that the money, $l,'o M,
was deposit -d in his father's bank
many years ago by JepthaWall, with
the paper weight, and the money,
without interest, was to be paid to
the one win had the duplicate.
Mr. Bufotd says that his father
failed 27 years ago ami that he is
paying his debts He assured Mrs.
Beale that she. would receive the
$1,000 though it would be paid in in
stallments, as rapidly as he could
pay it. Mrs. Beale thinks she may
get the money and is ready to take ft
and receipt for it as fast as it comes.
B. Edelman, who was bound ovr to
the grand ji ry in Davenport, a short
time since on the charge of forgery,
was before the commissioners of in
sanity there yesterday afternoon for
examination as to his mental condi
tion. For t ic past week or so he
has been criating quite a commotion
at the jail. It was a difficult matter
to keep his clothes on, as he evinced
a desire to t .-ar them all to shreds.
With a cloth bound around his head
and a towel for a breech cloth, he
has promeni ded up and down the
jail corridor thumping on a tin pan
and shouting at the top of his voice
He acted rpteerly during the exami
nation, alternately singing and cry
ing. Edelman comes from Sweden,
ami says he has been in this country
about ten months. Since coming to

Gov. Altgi id has commuted to 10

convicted ot 'murder and sentenced

that at the trial, Ril'inson. in order
to save his vife's reputation, would

The Mil Law still Holds.
. At the hist sosiim ,,t tin. Tliirlv.
eighth general assembly Representa- j
live Armstrong A. rowicr. of the
Forty-ninth district, introduced a
bill, which passed, repealing article
2. section 7. of the school law, which
provided tii: t the county superin
tendent for jalpable violation of the
law or for vilful neglect of dutv,
shall lie rem ved by the board. It
seems that article 11. section :i. of
the sanie law. an article relating to
chool boards, provides for the coun
ty board removing superintendents,
and as this section was not repealed,
.second Assistant Attorney General
Newell, in an opinion given Tues
day, holds tli it the board, still have

Keeping Peta and Prisoners.
A singing mouse, which is not go great a
rarity as one would suppose from the news
paper fuss that is sometimes made over
one, has an added attraction as a pet. The
singing is no doubt similar to that of the
marmoset and resembles the canary song
a good deal smothered.
These little creatures should be tamed,
and attached to people by their affections,
and not kept as prisoners in a cae. In the
former case they display their peculiar
characteristics and take perfect care of
their coat, while in the latter they require
constant watching and attention and show
no individuality whatever. It is not a pet
that is kept in a cage, it is a prisoner, and
a prisoner in his unnatural and unhappy
life can never afford much pleasure. Har
An Advertising Dodge.
The latest advertising scheme has been
practiced in the city this week by a young
man of push and ingeuuity. He rings a
doorbell, and when the door is opened au
daciously pushes himself in and asks for
the lady of the house, opeuini; the conver
sation in this fashion, "if you are not at
dinner, I would like to talk with you."
When asked upon what subject he prefers
to talk, he gravely replies: "I have come ta
make your acquaintance. 1 am a dentist
and shall be glad to secure your patron
age." At last accounts he found but few
