The suit of P. Walsh as contractor
against W. F. Cody for balance due on
building, was tried before the county
court this week, occupying a part of three
days. The jury rendered a verdict for
the plaintiff, but cut down his claim
nearly one-half. It is said both sides are
dissatisfied with the verdict, and the case
will likely go up to the district court.
Hershey & Co. one day this week
sold the first and only side-hill plow we

however a man's land may lie in such
shape that they can be used to advantage.

the ground proposed to be taken for the

paramount being that of sociability. The

apartments in the business part of the
city will be rented and nicely furnished
to be used as a rendezvous for members
of the organization. A meeting was held

last evening. Next week the definite

made for a blast of rock, the cartidges
were brought from the storehouse where
they were kept in a frozen condition.
hey were placed on tho stove in the
office of the company over a gentle fire to
thaw. This process not taking effect with
the rapidity desired, Mr. Walker, being
the foreman of the blasting party, placed
them on the stove on a sheet of paper.
The paper soon ignited, and Mr. Walker
seized two of the cartridges and rushed
for the w ash bowl only a few feet away,
while other occupants of the room rushed
or the doors. Before the water was
reached, the cartridges exploded in
Walker's hands. Both of Mr. Walker's
hands were blown to atoms and his body
was otnerwise terribly mangled, out he
ived. several hours. Four other persons
received serious injuries.

detection will be slim indeed, and if you
attempt any such thing yeu will be lodg
ed behind the cold and clammy doors of
the city bastile, there to ponder over the
uncertain outcome of "ways that are dark
and tricKs that are vain." We are led to
this definite conclusion by readiagthe
list of special policemen appointed by
his honor the mayor last Monday evening
and which will be found elsewhere in
these columns of record. When you
read the names you will arrive at the
same conclusion. An ounce of preven
tive is better than a "right smart" -of cure.
His Honor probably had this in mind,
when he made the appointments, only he
reasoned that if an ounce was good a:
pound would be better, and so he threw
in a whole hundred weight or more. The
effect desired will be a certain result.

The "Golden Gate Special" passed
through the city Wednesday at five p. m.
on its initial trip west. The train was

and the baggage car "Golden Gate," the
latter containing bath rooms, barber shop ,

all palatially furnished, the rear part of
the "Aladdin" containing an elegant
library and furnished with reclining

to the council Monday evening to the ef

treasury that he did not know what to do
with a surplus caused by the 15 per cent
over the amount of warrants drawn on
the levy. At this piece of information
there was a sudden stillness prevaded the
chamber. Then the countenances of the
members began to spread until the vacant
space in the room was covered with a
broad and pleasant smile, soon assuming
audible proportions. This chunk of news
was so unexpected that a vote of thanks
was at once privately proposed thanking
Treasurer Dick for the very able and ef

The physical forms of our Mayor and

was that the city treasurer had just re

The passage of the motioa by the

to allow the councils in the future to have
the water tested yearly, one half of the

The store of Grady & Egan was closed
yesterday afternoon by the First National
Bank on a chattel mortgage given to se

were secured in the same way.
This step was caused by inability to
make collections, the firm having been
doing a very extensive credit business.
' The stock is very large and the belief
is that it will invoice a sufficient amount
to pay all liabilities aggregating nearly
$20,000. There will be some loss on the

The analysis of this water from North

the very small amount of organic matter
in tne iorm 01 tree amonia and albumin
oid, and therefore I do hot hesitate in
pronouncing this water to be Dure and
wholesome for potable and all domestic
purposes. The following figures mar
show the hardness to be a little above the
average but still I have the firm opinion
that it will answer all purposes for laun
dry work with excellent results, and fur
ther I have proved this to be the case by
actual practice. The water is crystal
clear and tastes .most "refreshing,-due to
the bi-carbonate of lime and small amount
of chloride of sodium. The following

Thus $43.00 matures a share of $100,
making it a better investment than is of

way and many who are working for small
wages by the month can get a start in
life by taking a few shares. It costs
$3.50 a month, or about 12 cents per day
to carry five shares and in sixty months
they mature and pay $500 in a lump,
which amount cash in hand would start
