EXCHANGE, GLEANINGS, j A Kansas paper has for its motto, "Lie, steal, drink and swear," and it is thus explained by the editor. "When you lie, let it be down to pleasant dreams; when you steal, let it be away from immoral associates: when you drink, let it be pure water; when you swear, let it be that you will patronize your home paper, pay your subscription, and not send your job work away from town." When John Quincy Adams was 80 years of age he met in the streetn of Boston an old friend who shook his trembling hand and said—"Good morning, and how is John Quincy Adams to-day?" "Thank you" was the ex-President's answer, "John Quincy Adams himself is well, .sir, I thank you. But the house in which he lives at present is becoming delapidated. It is tottering upon its foundation. Time and the seasons have nearly destroyed it. Its walls are much shattered and it trembles with every wind. The old tenement is almost uninhabitable and I think John Quincy Adams will have to move but of it soon. But he himself is quite well sir, quite well," and with the aid of hia staff, that venerable sixth President of the United States moved on. THE "CAPTAIN" PARl'ED. HAS DE> So-Called Salvation Army People Gone to another Clime, Leaving Several Debts. For twenty years to the writer's knowledge, Olare has not been .infested with such a miserable humbug clothed in Salvation Army stripes and supposedly representing the principals of Jesus Christ, as has been hold' ing forth in Dunwoodie hall up to last. Friday night. The 0apti3n's(?) ap pearance would not favoaably impress one, and a half hour's conversation with him is all that would be necessary to show his utter unfitness for the work to which he claimed to have been "called." He stood up "before an audience ahd confessed that he could neither read or write, and, having learned two or three hymns, would stand before the people with a hymn book in hand and, pretpnd to read,-—a lie on the face of it. But this is tame. Having remarked that "we Salvation Army people will do most anything for money," he said if they would raise him twenty-five cents he'd sing them a song entitled, "Where did you get that hat?" which he did, with the audience, consisting mostly of boys, joining in the chorus. Friday all day he was busy soliciting edibles for a supper and asking people up to his "doin's." We had heard'of these disgraceful meetings but was obliged to discredit these reports, so resolved to take in the "doin's"— less the ten cent supper part of the program. An admission of ten cents being charged at the door, the congregation was slow assembling, but about half past eight the meeting commenced. The Oaptian announced that this meeting was in the name of the Lord, and after a song without reading of scripture his "woman" prayed, and following'her, he commenced a prayer. When about half through a terrible report was heard, The old lady got hysterics and the Captain, , who thought some one shot at him through tha window, demanded that Robert Maxwell, the door keeper^ .guard the inside while he went out to do police duty. But scarcely had he reached the door when another report was heard. This, infuriated him to the extent that he lost his nead. He tore DAVY & COMPANY SlylisMackets.

Grant didn't dodge so he somewhat cooled off. After the explosion of several more torpedoes, and the Captain's denouncing the people of Olare and branding them as "worse than heathens" he stood a six-year-old boy in front of a little red cross", the boy surrounded by a U. S. flag, drew the sheets used as curtains and said "This is Jesus as he appeared on the cross." The meeting broke up with a hullabaloo. He may have previously decided to leave, but the advice of one of our citizens was taken and the pair left Saturday morning on the first train west, leaving unpaid a board bill and several others.

In affirming the judgment of $1000 secured by Anna Lee against the city of Port Huron, tbe supreme court makes an important ruling. Port Huron by- ordinance provided for licensing bicyclists to ride on sidewalks on certain streets. Plaintiff paid the fee and obtained license. She recovered for injuries sustained while riding on.a defective walk. The court says that a failure on the part of a municipality to keep sidewalks in repair entails upon it liability for injuries sustained by the traveler who has exercised due care. While a bicycle is a vehicle, it is not to be classed, in all its methods ot use, with other vehicles drawn by animal or mechanical power, To ride a bicycle on a sidewalk may not be a nuisance, where to drive a horse and wagon upon it would. A baby carriage is a yehicle, but it is not a nuisance upon either streets or sidewalks. The riding of a bicycle upon a sidewalk is not an unlawful act at common law. What Would be a nuisance upon aside- walk continually crowded, with foot passengers, would not be a nuisance upon a sidewalk little traveled. . Under the broad powers conferred by the charter, the city has power to permit this use of sidewalks, and the city must, therefore, keep the walks in reasonable repair for ordinary use of bicyclists, if walks were con structed of plank running lenyttiwise, the plank might be 30 far apart as to permit the tire of a wheel to be caught in openings and cause the rider to fall, while it would be entirely safe for predestrians. Or there might* be a depression in a cement walk, entirely safe for pedestrains, but' unsafe for bicycles. Another Car Ferry. The Pere Marquette railroad wil! build a new car ferry, to be known as Pere Marquette No. 18, and to be a duplicate ot the car ferry Pere Marquette ISo. 17. It is to cost $400,000 and will be a twin screw vessel, 350 feet over all* 56 feet beam, and 19 feet 6 inches deep.
