PATENT The Bell Telephone Company May Have Competitors On March 7 the Bell telephone patent which has been causing so much agitation in large cities will expire and this will un- doubtedly be felt in this city and rounding country On March 7 it will be seventeen years since the ent was issued It is already ed a new corporation may knock ou the doors of councils of several cities where the Bell tele- phone is now used and ask rights and privileges for the construction of telephone systems It is probable that should the Bell Telephone com- pany again hold the fort its tele- phones will then no longer be leased and must he sold as low as those of other companies It is thought that on account of the Bell company ing entire control in the state it will experience little trouble in its competitors Within the past year the company has rebuilt its lines in Oshkosh Appleton Bacine ville Eau Claire and other places trying to get its service perfect before the patent expires STORY OF A

West Superior Each of the cars was placarded with banners showing what the cars contained their and by whom shipped Chocked by a Kernal of Corn Colby Phonograph A young child of Mrs Anna Gray of the town of Hull died very suddenly last day We are informed that the little one was choked to death by a kernal of corn Dr Freeman was sent for but met a messenger half way out with the news that the child was dead He Was Sent After Is Coin and He Brought It Back Home One day when a Paris tradesman was walking on the Boulevard St Antoine with a friend he offered to lay a wager with the latter that if he were to hide a piece in the dust his dog would discover it and bring it to Mm The wager was accepted and the coin secreted after being carefully marked When the two friends had proceeded some distance from the spot the man called to his dog that he had lost something and ordered Mm to seek for it Caniche immediately turned back while his master and his companion sued their walk to the Eue St Denis Meanwhile a traveler who happened just then to be returning hi a email chaise from Vincennes perceived the piece of money which his horse hac kicked from its hiding place He alighted took it up and drove to his inn in the Hue Caniche had just reached the spot in juest of the piece when the stranger picked it up He followed the chaise went into the inn and stuck close to the traveler Having scented out the com which he had been ordered to bring back In the pocket of the latter he leaped up Incessantly at and about him The traveler supposing Mm to be some dog that had been lost or left behind by Ms master regarded hia movement as marks pf fondness and as the animal gome he determined to keep Mm He gave him a good supper and on retiring to bed took him with him to his chamber No sooner had he pulled off hia sers than they were seized by the dog The owner thinking that the dog wanted to play with them took them away again The animal began to bark at the door which the traveler opened Caniche snatched up the trousers and off he flew The traveler posted after frim in his dressing gown Anxiety for the fate of a purse full of gold napoleons of forty franca each which was in one of his pockets gave double velocity to his steps Caniche ran at full speed to his master's house where the stranger ar- rived a few moments afterward less and enraged He accused the dog of robbing him said the master my dog is a faithful creature and if he has run away with your trousers it is because you have in them money which does not belong to you The traveler became stai more exasperated Compose yourself rejoined the other smiling without doubt there is in your purse a 6-livre piece with such and such marks which you picked up on the Boulevard St An- toine and which I threw down there with the firm conviction that the dog would bring it back again This is the cause of the robbery which he has com- mitted upon you The stranger's rage now yielded to He delivered the 6-livre piece which he had deposited in the purse and complimented the dog which had occasioned him so much uneasiness and such an unpleasant York World SCHOOL REPORTS DISTRICT NO 4 Town of Plover for month ending

Puritan fathers wore shoes peaked About 1680 square toes made their appearance In the reign of Mary who died in 1658 there was a proclamation issued that no person should wear shoes over two inches

Meeting Ideal lfc is always remarked Scott Hendee to the corridor man that a man's ideal does not exist on this ball that always it ia ethereal evanescent and can never be described nor painted I am a by trade but by I really think that I have not only painted my ideal woman but later still found her For a long time I studied over what beanty is in woman and endeavored to my ideal I partly succeeded in for later I painted what I considered the most beautiful woman measured of course by the standard of my own in- and choice Then I fell to admiring my work and dreamed of some day meeting my ideal About five years ago I traveled in Switzerland sketching the glorious Alpine scenery tie natives and the pretty women One afternoon I journeyed or rather to a rich old burgher's country seat about seventeen leagues from Lucerne to sketch and to visit the graves of some of Switzerland's fallen heroes While there I met the owner a stern old Catholic who could fluently speak french He introduced me to his daughter the fair in whom I found a majority of the of my ideal I had almost painted her correctly While there I studied her face closely so as to be able to catch the fleeting expressions and the sentiment that I knew my picture lacked Then I returned home and touched again the face with my brush After making a very little change I found that the picture was a splendid likeness and I accordingly presented it to the Louis srat Beauty and the Beasts Three Broadway cars four trucks a and a light cart became en- tangled hi a blockade near Prince street It was bitter cold and the drivers felt grieved that they had to stand still Then a handsome carriage with a spanking team and old driver hi livery tried to worm its way through the ade There was rattle and a bang and the carriage wheels were caught by the wheels of a truck Hah ye swash faced Innk headed a car driver yelled to the ied driver y Gabback out cried another driver The air was blue with profanity each driver vying to outswear the other The driver of the carriage said never a word but his face was a study Eage hostility and cuss words were struggling there with restraint and duty Just then the carriage door was opened from within and a rosy face appeared budding from a hazy mass of light furs It was a sweet blue eyed young and very pretty face only the mouth was contracted as if in pain What's the matter she asked plaintively Cant you drive on? I'm just freezing in here The swearing ceased at once and no one looked John hi the face but the driver of the car backed his horses the truck pulled up a little the cart swung slightly around and the carriage passed through and rolled on its York Sun What is Castoria is Dr Samuel Pitcher's prescription for sad Children It contains neither Morphine nor other Narcotic substance It Is a harmless substitute for Paregoric Drops Soothing Syrups and Castor It is Pleasant Its guarantee is thirty years use by Millions of Mothers Castoria destroys Worms and allays feverishness Castoria prevents Sour Curd cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic Castoria relieves teething troubles cures constipation and flatulency Castoria assimilates the food regulates the stomach and bowels giving healthy and natural sleep toria is the Children's Mother's Castoria is an excellent dren have repeatedly told ma of its good effect upon their children DB Q C Lorrell HUB Castoria fc the best remedy f or of which I am acquainted I hope the day is not far distant when mothers will consider the real interest of their children and use Castoria in- destroying their tared ones by forcing opium morphine soothing and other hurtful agente down their throats thereby sending them to premature graves KB J V Ark Castoria Castoris Is so well adapted to children that I recommend it as to me H Onr physicians in fha children's ment have spoken highly of their ence in their outside practice with Castoria and although ire only ham among oar medical what to known as regular products yet we are free to that the merits of Cantoria has won sc to look with SUBE Pro Centaur Company TI Street Hew York Ctty fof We We A Faithful Eskimo Dog Fidelity is the chief virtue of the kimo dog One of my leaders when crippled by starvation and overwork had to be abandoned because he refused to be carried on the sled I left him be- hind feeling as if I were tearing myself from a dear friend but before we continued our way I gave him the last fish we had depriving ourselves of that food Three days afterward while we were encamping at the Eskimo village of the dog reached us having followed our trail with bleeding feet and emaciated body for eighty-five miles forty-five of which consisted of crossing the surface of the great Lake in a a rather ated species of B in Milwaukee Sentinel H D McCulloch Co kfe iq CANNED GOODS eU Thought Himself Qualified A contest arose Saturday night hi an Auburn barber shop about the tive honesty of the French and laboring man One of the disputants was a Frenchman who eloquently ex- tolled the merits of the French laboring man An interested listener thought he would take part in the discussion and prefaced his remarks Now I pose I'm part French myself My father and mother were both Commercial In the Far North Lieutenant Peary the arctic explorer saw bumblebees as far north as latitude 81 degs 87 mins hi Greenland and stated that bluebottle flies were as com- mon that far north as they are hi delphia around a butcher shop The mentioned is within about 580 miles of the north A Not wishing to carry over any winter goods I will make the following prices which will speak for FS SUITS at and up IS SUITS at HEN'S BOYS Men's and Boys Caps at 38 lOc and np Men's red and white mixed Underskirts Men's weight Drawers at Men's heavy gray Men's gray and Drawers Men's gray and Drawers Cold Water Without Ice Get a common earthenware pitcher he commoner the better as it will ba he more porous wrap it all around eaving no inch of it bare with wet flannel Keep the flannel wet and the water will shortly be as cold as is good for drinking purposes almost ice cold PRICES Baking Child's Cloaks ages 5 to 8 only 950 Ladies Shawls at wholesale prices Good all wool Flannels soc per yd A better grade at 250 splendid quality Men's solid light or heavy SHOES good stock at per pair Solid heavy SHOES for boys at ooc Good solid school SHOES for dren I have also a nice line of finer shoes winter goods such as Hoods Men's heavy Over Socks Gloves and Mittens Pants Overcoats Ladies Skirts shirts etc will be sold at a ly low price Call and be convinced IK ROSS Tickets will not be punched on goods which are at cut prices DO YOU WANT LETTER HEADS NOTE it HEADS DO YOU WANT ENVELOPES STATEMENTS CARDS The only Pure Cream of Tartar Ammonia No Alton Used in Years the H yon do CALL AT THE OFFICE buH
