Well. Wayne waa elected city murBlial
the other day by a fairly reapectable
maturity, and a party of hie friends
gathered In Dr. Hutlor'a office Tueeday
uiorning to present him with a nt eiu
bloui of hie office. Harry Ballingei
made a neat presentation speech. Hi
aid in substance: Inasmuch as Inde-
Dendence 1h in danger of Invasion from
the warlike Indian tribes that inhabit
the BileU and Grand Ronde reservations
daring the season of the year when the
aromatic hop vines yield there rich
harvest, it is proier that our chief of
police should be fittinifly armed so as to
repid any sudden erruption on the part
of the savnge foe. We all know that our
new marshal's fame for courage has
gone abroad over the hind, and that his
name is uiwd as a lullaby by the Indian
mother to huso her fretful papoone into
peaceful repose. Tins fume is not un
diMwrved for on sundry and divers occk
ions: he has been known to ttickle
single handed three burly Indian bucks,
who had imbibed too freely of fire-water
and incarcerate theui iiiHide the gloomy
walla of the city calaboose, and leave
them there to the tender mercy of the
city recorder. But there are times when
these untutored savages threaten to
fUllllft down on our devoted city like the
"Assyrian wolf upon the fold," and at
aiirh times the simple weapoua provided
i nature will hardly suffice to repel the
yelling and drunken horde. Now, out
nfnwict for a descent and respeciaoie
maintenance of the peace and dignity of
this city, we herewith present the marshal-elect
with this splendid weapon,
trusting that he will use it judiciously
ami onlv in times of extremest danger,
that is at such times when the city is
threatened with an attack from the
horde of Indians who congregate here
during the hop-picking season. Mr.
Bullinger herewith presented to Mr.
Wllllanifl a huee improvised blunderbus
gotten up in imitation of the old flint
lock miiBket. The boys an enjoyea me
joke and Wayne admitted the "beer"
was ou him.

of the wide-awake young and middle-
aged men of the city, men who lieliuve
conservative amusements and healthy
exercise are essential elements in mak
ing lifo worth living. The I. A. A. C
are arranging to favor the people of In
dependence with a series of entertain
ments during the winter months, and
while it would be impolitic to tax the
people unduly In these close times and
unwise to surfeit them with a plethora
of amusements, but s certain degree of
vivacity is MtM'iitiul to the moral 'health
of society. It Is perfectly natural for
men and women to seek relaxation horn
the cares of business and household
duties, and it is proper they should bs
afforded amusements that have an ele

purpose of the atheletic club to furnish
healthful amusements only this and

Chicago's most prominent ihiusic
house, Lyon A Healy, have a number of
slightly used and second-hand pianos,
taken in trade, used in concerts, and In
fact not brand new instruments, which
they have determined to sacrifice lather
than to try to make room for. Tkjese
instruments comprise Square pianos at
40,05, 90. 1100 and $125. Upright
pianos at 125, fHO, 15t), lloo, fiw,
1200. 225. 1240, and upward. Grand
pianos at $200, $260, $300 and ugwaVd,
Nearly all originally sold for from two to
four times their present price. Almost
all prominent makes (in square and up
rights) are represented, including among
numerous others Chickering, Knabe,
Steinway, Weber, Decker, Steck, Fisher,
etc. This is an opportunity mat win
not occur again, as Lyon & Healy never
had so many pianos of this class before.
Immediate attention is necessary. A

However, they will send a list and full
particulars upon application. Any
piano not proving satisfactory may be
returned at their expense. Address at
their new salesroom, corner Wabash
Avenue and Adams Street, Chicago.
Distance is no obstacle in taking advan
tage of this' remarkable chance to ob
tain a piano, for in proportion to the
saving to be made, the freight charges
are insignificant. If you do not already
know them by reputation, any banker
will assure you of Lyon & Healy'a entire
responsibility and record of over a third
a century for honorable dealing.
