Sioux City Journal, 28: Dr. Jesse Bowman Young, of Kansas City, is one Of the most eminent of western preachers. He was in the city last night accompan ied by his son Jared W. Young, en route to Lake Madison where he is to deliver four lectures before the South Dakota Chautauqua. Vilas dispatch, S7: Governor Mellette passed through here recently on his re turn from Madison, and while waiting tor the train spent the time giving your Correspondent an exhibition of his abil ity to guide the plow through an exceed ingly weedy piece of summer fallow. We can vouch for his qualifications as a farmer now, and recommend plowing with a stirring plpw as a most healthy exercise. JOm PARKIX Has JKcalfpaed HIN Position) if Ageat at the MilwaakM Depot Other Change*. The business men of Madison, all of whom transact more or less business at the Milwaukee depot, will regret to learn that John R. Parkin haa resigned the position of agent, and will depart from the city. Johnny, as he is familiarly Called, has filled the position of agent fcince the fall of 1880, and during all of the years intervening he has not only been popular with the general public, but has possessed the personal friend ship of the business men of Madison to & degree that must certainly be wholly (satisfactory to himself. He took charge of the station when it was in' its infancy, and has seen it grow in importanbe and volume of business transacted until it is second to no other on the S. M. division west of LaCrosse. Johnny poe tesses unusual business facility, and no tuatter hdw crowded he may have been With business, nor the size of the crowd baiting to be served by him, he was al ""Ways cool and collected, no confusion, ^.l&nd each patron in turn was Served to .?iis complete satisfaction. This element in his character haa been' frequently re ^narked, and it is not likely that his su perior in thin respect can be found in the entire Milwaukee service. Mr. Par- ias not yet fully decided what he will engage in, and may, possibly, quit the railroad business entirely. His res ignation will take effect on the 1st inst, but ho will romain in the city several weeks thereafter. He will be succeeded by John Larkin, at present agent at Egan. J. M. Oxley, train dispatcher at Madi son station, will be transferred to a sim ilar position at LaCrosse, to succeed 0. II. Scott, who has been promoted to the position of trainmaster of the S. M. divi sion and branches. Mr. Oxley has been a resident of this city since last January. He will be succeeded by Mr. Wood of LaCrosse. S. C. Sorenson will accompa ny Mr. Oxley to LaCrosse and enter upon the duties of assistant, a position identi cal with the one he occupies here. "Sor has been a resident of Madison sev eral years, and will be greatly missed, especially from the circles of young peo ple, in which he is very popular. J. M. Moore, at present night operator, will succeed Mr. Sorenson. Mr. Moore has recently come to the city, but he bears the reputation of being abundantly able to fill the position to which he has been promoted.

Encore is a word that has come into common use at the Chautauqua grounds, and the delightful custom of encoring, to the platform specialist, at least, is an important feature of the entertainments at the auditorium. An encore indicates the appreciation of the audience. You have undoubtedly noticed that in cheap theaters the encore is sought after, and the delightful little soubrette often leavertto footlights crestfallen in ap pearance unless there is an indication that she will receive aA encore. Who knows but the girls behind the scenes "bet" with each other that they will re ceive an encore when they have onoe made their appearance? The encores at the auditorium, however, have been thoroughly deserved and bestowed upon the favorites with all the vigor the large audiences have At their oommand. The word encore is frequently, we may say almost universally, mispronounced, even among Chautauqua devoteee. It is commonly pronounced as it is spelled— e-n-c-o-r-e. And there is no good reason why it should not be pronounced as it is spelled. By some hocuspocas, however, there are a great many words in the i English language that are spelled direct ly opposite to the way they ought to be pronounced, and encore is one of them. Encore is pronounced "ong-kor" because it is a conglomeration of several different languages, perhaps, naturalized in the English system. The pronounciation of the word should be made frith a nasal twang, similar to the "honk" of a wild goose, and then you have it au fait. Savy? Coming up on the motor last evening, a timid little lady ventured a reference to the auditorium exercises and used the word encore. She pro nounced it "encore" in plain English. But if she tumbled she soon discovered that her pronounciation was faulty. Her elbow ooqppanion, a masculine fe male being who sat on the seat at the rate of 1G0 pounds a minute, took up the word and gave the "honk" to it not lees than fifteen times in rapid succession without any other connection with accompany ing words than simply "honk." The fourth vowel of the alphabet was used in its longest and broadest capacity—On oore! Oncore! Onoore! until the engineer whistled down brakes, and the timid little lady who had brought on the on slaught left the tram without venturing a little bit of a "peep." For Sale at a Bargain.

Hood, a citizen of Frankfort, Ind., has been subject to epileptic at* tacks, and, in consulting a young doc tor by the name of Perkins, decided to take his treatment, which consisted of a small pill to be taken every night before retiring. In a short time he began to turn blue, and today he is as blue as in digo. His entire body is blue, with his fi#ce and hands a deeper The doc tors can ascribe no cause for the change^ and the best skill has failed to restore natural «©lor.—Cor. Cleveland Lea4@fe Ah Untimely Death. Isaac Dixon several mpnths ago came~ to this country from England and went to work as a laborer in a rolling mill at Passaic, N. J. ^He drank ice water to excess Thursday and died Saturday ad a result. Since then it has come to light that had he lived seven months longer he would have received a large estate in England. Why he came here and hired as a laborer no one appeared to know. He was to be married -within few weeks to a young lady of P&terson,' —Philadelphia Ledger, V"a /in* STILL jTBOOMS. The Old Soidiers Capture the Chautauqua AimI Hold High Carnival ror One Day —Jesse Bowmau Yonng And Chap* lain Lozier In Command. Frank Beard, With HI* Little Cray .4NM, Taken a Rand In the Fan—The BnthttNiaMm and EnJojneat Increasing- The «. A. R. Boys made as complete a capture of this great moral show and everything connected with it yesterday as they did confederate batteries during the eventful period which called their valor into requisition. But it was different kind of capture: No sorrow—nothing but pleasant recol lections will follow their gathering at this place yesterday. And this remnant of the rapidly disappearing reminder of the republic's darkest period will live longer and remain fresher in the memo ries of the rising generation because of their first public gathering on the Lake Madison Chautauqua grounds yesterday. From 3:30 to 8:00 o'clock yesterday af ternoon the auditorium was occupied by the G. A. R. It was a day set aside ex pressly for them and all the speechify ing, singing and other exercises were of a patriotic nature. Rousing brief speech es were made by Congressman Pickler, Judge Palmer, and other distinguished veterans, all bearing upon the past, pres ent and future of this country, which all agreed had been made the most beauti ful in the government and the greatest and most powerful on earth directly through the loyalty of the soldiers of the union. Jeaae Bawnu Yaaag's LactsM last evening was in many respects the most interesting event of the assembly. It was not a studied harangne by a per son whose knowledge of what he talked had been gleaned from books and from hearsay of some one else, but it was connected, truthful and graphic descrip tion of one of the greatest battles any history, and was highly appreciated by all who heard it, and especially by the veterans present, many of whom, either with musket or sword, were active par ticipants in the scenes which the speak er so vividly spread before his large audience. Had Lee defeated Meade at Gettysburg, the national capital would have fallen into the hands of the con federancy, and the result of such a cat astrophy to the union it is impossible to comprehend at this time. Jesse Bowman Young gave a talk this morning on the origin,plan of work, etc., of the Epworth League. Beard Kaiaea Theaa Owt. The old soldiers of this community who were present in the auditorium yes terday afternoon will in future confine themselves strictly to facts when spin ning war reminiscenses. They freely acknowledge that there is no possible show for them—not even for their im agination—after hearing Frank Beard relate his marvelous experiences. They recognize in Mr. Beard the most colossal, artistic and unique narrow-escape war yarn liar extant, against whose brilliant achievements their most masterly im aginings would fall unheeded. Mr. Beard is an artist in whatever he undertakes. That Collection. Xo person with common horse sense left the auditorium last night with the impression that the Lake Madison Chautauqua assembly is a "begging in stitution." It was the first collection taken on the grounds, and may be the last in the history of the association. And whatever may be the public opinion of collections in general, the object of the appeal for aid last night was one which will ever find hearty and sub stantial response from a truly loyal and potriotic people, who, as has been shown in thousands of instances, stand ready to divide "even to the half of that which they hath" for the comfort of their country's defenders. Nothing is too good for the old soldiers, as was verified by the handsome addition to the hospit al fund, which was made last night. Judge c. N, Palmer in hte address to the G. A. R. yesterday referred to T. DeWitt Talmage as "America's greatest orator," and lauded "the burning eloquence" which his acute vision detected in the reverend gentle man's address in this place last Thurs day. It is the first time we have heard anyone mention anything in Mr. Tal mage's address on that occasion which was partievdatiy "burning" in its elo quence. And CoaiHeits. It was a great day. Everybody enjoyed it hughly. This is Epworth League day. "The boys" were ij». their happiest moods. "John Hogarth Lozier, Mt Vernon, Iowa," arrived at the Grand Vieyi? to-day. Mrs. Helen M. Barker having closed her engagement with the Association, bade farewell to her Chautauqua friends to-day. The lecture by Jesse Bowman Young at 8:00 o'clock this evening will be illus trated by canvas pictures twenty feet square. To-morrow will be tb« next most in- -V teresting day of the Assembly. You should not fail to come, and come early and stay all day, The Three Graces added laurels to their crown of excellence as musicians by their performances at the G. A. R» jubilee yesterday. The collection for the benefit of thft hospital fund of the Hot Springs, S. D^ soldiers home last evening amounted t« the neat sum of 975. Jahu DeWitt Miller will be here to morrow at 2:30 o'clock without fail, and deliver his lecture on "Our Countryll Possibilities and Perils" at 3.. E. E. Clough maintains the reputation of his namesake, Dr. A. E. Clough of this city, as a great talker. As the la* dian would say, he "heap much talk." About thirty persons who had intend ed to spend last night up town "got left," and had to fall back on their Chautauquaville friends for sleeping ac commodations, or walk to the city. Sev eral made the trip on foot. The dignity and importance of the American flag has taken on greater Big nificance since it is known that every star on its azure field cost the lives of ten thousand human beings in the war of the rebellion. Miss May Usher Griffin, the elocution ist, is making new admirers every day, and while many regretted the departure of Prof. Underhill, they are consoled with the feeling that bis place is (ally tilled by Mies Griffin. The "starlight" excursion on the lake announced to take place at the close of Prof. Young's lecture last evening, did not materialize. Most of Chautauqua ville took an excursion to their beds about as soon after the close of the lec ture as possible. A runaway, which had in its general oontour the makings of a first-class tragedy, had its starting at the Chautau qua stable yard soon after the close of last evening's lecture, but was fortu nately brought to an end without fur ther damage than the raining of several fine shade trees. Thousands of little dodgers bearing this legend, have been spread all over Chautauquaville: "Omaha—Population 1880,30,518 1890,140,452. Increase in ten years, over 360 per cent." Omaha is a bad city, but it has rustling business men who recognize the great value of printer's ink, They are advertisers. It was a great disappointment to every one and particularly so to v "the boys, thas Chaplain Lozier, who was advertised as one of the special attractions of G. A R. day, did not arrive. A telegram from that gentleman informed the manage ment that he had missed train connec tions but would surely be here to-day. A visitor from the inland townships, fishing from the boat-house platform this morning, was frightened half out of his wits by observing a little way off on his weather bow, the appearance of a "school" of bullheads. He thought it was the great sea* serpent reported to have been seen down the lake recently. The little granddaughter of Judge Bennett of Clark, the same who contest ed for the Demorest medal in the opera house in this city a year ago, gave a touching recitation last evening which brought forth the heartiest applause, and as a special reoogmtion of her pre cocity, she was given the Chautauqua salute. Said one gentleman yesterday—an old, white haired gentleman, dressed in blue and wearing a peculiar button on the lapel of his coat and a rheumatic twitch in both legs: "One would think this crowd crazy—that is, if there was any one in the crowd sane enough to have a rational thought." And while he said it, this old man—this veteran of many battle experiences—forgetting for the time the dark and terrible days of th r. ty years ago, was himself actually trying to execute the Spanish fandango. He had forgotten everything bat the pleas ures of the hour. G. A. R. day was not second in interest to any other day of the assembly^thus far. It was a day in which more neigh borly sociability and friendliness entered into the programme than on any other day since the opening of the Chautauqua grounds. Everything was sort of in formal, go-as-you-please—just such a dayJas the old vets make wherever they go. Chautauqua ways and Chautauqua rules were laid aside, and "everything went." And yet nothing was said or done which could possibly be objected to by the most prim or fastidious. It was a grand G. A. R. jollification—with capital letters. Good Plot DM at a«nw The following singular will case comes from Hamburg. Some years ago there died in Schleswig, Germany, a govern ment official najned Nielsen. Some lit tle time before he died Nielsen be queathed to his man servant 20,000 crowns and to his cook a like sum, on fiie condition that if either of them mar ried the 20,000 crowns should revert to the other. As soon as the old gentle man died, however, the happy possessors of this fortune went to the altar and were married. The couple then took up their residence in Hamburg, where they have resided for the last six years. Recently there arrived from Copenha gen a relative of Herr Nielsen, who by their marriage considered the spirit of his relative's last will and testament had been departed from, and demanded the festitution of the 40,000 crowns. The matter is now before a court of law.— tiondow Kftvra. ..'-J4* v v 1'- MADISON, S. D. IX I'll A I. II tlU IA\H|*|. SPECIAL OFFER I Mi KEEP COOL!
