DiKTifi'Uw ft was &A the little junction tovm ot Weal Liberty, Iowa, at the indecent hour of 0 a.m that a traveller who had just arrived entered as alleged restaurant near the railway deodt and said? 'Bring me some bacon and eggs.' "Got. ye," said the young behind manger. In fifteen or twenty minutow the same young man returned with a piate containing something. The traveller examined it critically, making n4 motions towards attacking the viands there dia played.
