The [November number of McClure's Magazine, containing the opening chapters of the Life of Lincoln, was out of print in two weeks after publication, increasing the circulation by 45,000 new subscribers.

One of the Lincoln pictures aud many of the other illustrations have never before been published. A swindle is being extensively practiced in this wise : A man well dressed and with a business-like air calls 1 upon the people and represents himself as a government detective or agent, with the statement that there is much counterfeit money in circulation and requests them to show what coins they have in their possession. He then uses a chemical, which turns the coins black, declares it spurious, and takes it away with him. The victims say nothing for a time for fear of being arrested for having counterfeit money in their possession, and by this time the swindler is far Excellent sleighing. Did you return thanks?

He has a position of head sawyer in a mill there. Among other interesting Lincoln material, the DecemberMcClure's contains a hitnerto unpublished account of how Lincoln, at the risk of his life, saved three men from drowning during a spring freshet. This happened when he was a young man of twenty-two. and was at Sangamon, building the flatboat for his trip to New Orleans. Married, in Clare, Thanksgiving eve, by Eev. A. H. Coors, at tbe M.E. parsonage, Cyrus F. Boorom of this city, to Miss Eose E. Mitchell of Arthur township. The groom is an industrious young fellow and his friends wish him every happiness. The bride is a wellknown and much respected young lady who has the best wishes of a large circle of acquaintances. A new law enacted by the last legislature provides that justices shall keep a record of the drunks that come before them, and when the same man shall come for the second time within a year, he shall be bound over to the circuit court and then he may receive* a two year's sentence to the workhouse. Only one drunk a year'now is lawful. 'Tis a vain trick to ask the ladies of any church to have a birthday social and give a penny for every year of their lives. Better reverse the thing and ask everybody to give a penny for every year they are under seventy. Men could join in pouring in the cash. The old folks would be pleased at getting off easy and the young would rejoice in having so longa score between themselves and the seventies. It is ruled by the postal authorities that any reduction of the size of the postal card by clipping, rounding off the corners, or otherwise, will subject the receiver of a .card to a charge of one cent on delivery. This makes a postal card equivalent to letter postage. Many people enclose postal cards to correspondents in envelopes too small, and imagine that a little clipping will not make any difference. Others round ofl the corners for ornamental purposes or convenience in ■infir. Don't do it again. .: : . MasoM©-Of Users, The annual election of officers of John Q.
