legislators. There wasn’t any ladies

seemed to stay in the houses.
In.lhe south part of the town there
is an artesian well in an old vacant lot
that just bubbles right up out jof the
ground and makes a little branch that
runs into the river. It flows 3,600,000
gallons a day, and they don’t use a bit.
It hasn’t been long dug.

A SPEECH FROM CLEVELAKD.
The second toast, “Our honorary
members,” was responded to by ex-
President Cleveland, who said that
the business of the country was Its
lifeblood. Those who understood its
laws, and their operation, were better
able to perform their duties as citi
zens, than they otherwise coulJ.
Good government was best measured
by business tests. Hence the greater
number of business men who ure en
gaged in administering the affairs of
