The Presbyterian church received seven new

church not only by the addition of new members
but by revival of the old.

Prof. Hunt's lecture at the Methodist church
Monday evening was interesting and received the
close attention of all present. The topic was
"Common Sense About Heading." The lesson
to the teachers was important and will arouse an
interest in this homcwhat neglected study.
A thief attempted to steal a horrc Sunday
night from the stable of II. M. Slack, a resident

The Union Mission Sunday school of the
Third Ward, uuder the encouragement of the

religious instruction that therwisc he might
never receive. In this work the ladies deserve
The members and friends of the Uniterian
Sunday school, desire to thank Mr. and Mrs.
Stcbbins for the use of their beautiful grove last
Saturday; also for use of team. There is no grove
within such easy distance from the city, that can
compare with the Stebbius home place, the loca
tion is beautiful and the trees have a wonderful
growth for their age. "May such picnics come

It being a year since Rev. Jcnncrassmned the
rectorship of the Church of Our Savionr. he will
on nexrSuntlay morning deliver his anniversary
sermon. The reverend gentleman has labored
very diligently in the interests of his church and
people and his efforts have been crowned with
euccess, some fifteen persons having been
confirmed. If more of the members were imbued
with the activity whicli characterizes Mr. Jenncr
the church would be doing even a grander work
than it is. It is to be regretted that o few of the
members avail themselves of the opportunities to
hearthe able sermons delivered by their rector.
If this horse stealing business continues it
will be well for the citizens to organize a society
known as vigilantes, an order which when in
vogue in the earlier days of the country meted
out justice in fairer proportions than do the
courts of this enlightened day. We trust that the
mantle of Judge Gaslin, who was a "holy terror''
to horse thieves, may fall on Judge Church, so
that when the oilicers are fortunate enough to
catch a thief he will be sentenced to the fullest
extent of the law, and that the Judge may express
profound sorrow in his inability to give the
criminal a longer term behind the bars.
The railway engineers of the city arc now
making arrangements to give a ball at the opera
house on Sept. 20th. As this ball may be termed
the opening dance of the season, the boys will
spare no pains in making it unusually flowery and
elegant. It is generally acknowledged that the
members of the B. of L. E. know better how to
conduct a strictly first-class public dance than
other persons and when they promise that all who
attend will have a pleasant evening that promise
is.always fulfilled. This being the case, the 20th
of September will be eagerly awaited by those
who delight to craccfully skim the waxen floor.
The presence of the teachers in the city has
been the source of a number of social gatherings
for their entertainment -during the week. On
Thursday, Prof. Langford gave a lecture illustrat
ed with magic lantern views, highly entertaining
and instruct've. Prof. Ilnnt's lecture on Monday
evening was well attended. Coming from a
person so highly cultured, every word and every
gesture received the closest attention. Last
evening as we went to press the teachers were
entertaining their friends at the court house,
daring which ice cream and cake were served. On
to-morrow (Thursday) evening the teachers will
be entertained at the residence of Mr. and Mrs.
Few parties given this year have equalled and
none excelled the one given by Mr. and Mrs. C. F.
Iddings on Tuesday evening of last week. The
invitations contained the sentence "dancing from
8:30 to 12,' and to this end the house had been
put in readiness. The carpets in three rooms had
been covered with canvass, making dancing more
of a pleasure than it would otherwise on a summer
night Floral decorations were profuse and
tastefully arranged, adding a pleasing effect to
the handsomely furnished apartments. The pro
gram contained ten dances, and at the stated time
music resounded through the house and the
dancing opened with a waltz. After eight
numbers had been completed, refreshments were
served, each guet receiving a souvenir pansy
bouquet After all had done justice to these
seasonable refreshments, two more dances were
called, after which the guests departed, no doubt
regretting that such enjoyable evenings were not
or more frequent occurrence, and feeling that as
entertainers Mr. and Mrs. Iddings were very
successful. There were about thirty in attendance.
Lutheran Cucncu Notes. The Lutheran

during the pastor's vacation, and every teacher
made the good record of being present every

A special meeting of the council was
held Tuesday evening the object being to
purchase an electric fire alarm apparatus.
There were present Mayor Ormsby,
Councilmen Iddings, Walsh, Klein and
Johnson. After hearing the statement of
the agent, the council voted to buy the
apparatus, at $1,000, $500 to be paid next
spring and .$500 the year following, with
interest at seven per cent from date of
acceptance of the fire alarm. The water
works company is to string the wires, but
there will be an additional cost to the
city of about $250 for an alarm bell and
the building of a tower to mount it on.
Counting interest the cost will be thirteen
or fourteen hundred dollars. The system
is said to be a very efficient one, and will
be serviceable in time of a fire.

The county commissioners went
down to Brady Island station Tuesday
the 20th to measure the distance across
the river at the place where the proposed
bridge is to be constructed . They were
accompanied by Surveyor Fort The task
of measuring was quite difficult, the
brush on the islands and tow-beads being
very thick and hard to penetrate. How
ever the work was successfully accom
plished, and they found the distance to be
4,427 feet. This includes bridging
across several tow-heads where the work
will be light. The turn outs can be
constructed on the islands. The amount
of bridging slightly exceeds the estimate,
but as a considerable portion can be light,
the board believes they can keep within
the sum voted for the purpose. It is
earnestly hoped that the bridge can be
constructed before cold weather, but if it
is some lively work will be necessary.
A Team Stolen.
The most daring and so far successful
case of horse stealing it has been our
duty to chronicle took place in this city
Friday evening last Prof. Langford,
county superintendent, was attending the
meeting of the Oxford League at the
Methodist church, and he hitched his
horses attached to the buggy to a post
opposite the church. Between 8 and 9
o'clock some one deliberately unhitched
the team and drove away with the whole
outfit The discovery that th6 team was
gone was made soon after and search was
at once instituted. The sheriff was at
once notified and the search was kept up
all night, but no trace of "the team was
discovered. It is likely the thief struck
out north or south, keeping away from
the telegraph stations, and as the horses
are very fast travelers he could be fifty
miles away by daylight. Extraordinary
efforts are being made to find the team,
and we sincerely hope they will bo
successful. Elsewhere will be found a
description of the horses.

In an item last week we stated that
"a recent shipment of butter by the
creamerv on arrival in New York did
not come up to the standard of excellence
desired, the inspectors claiming that the
packages had imparted an unpleasant
flavor." This was not quite correct.
Only a portion of the tubs bad imparted a
taste to the butter, lhe returns stated
that the butter was very nicely packed
and was first class In every respect. With
the exception of a few tubs it went on the
market as A No. 1. However the inten
tion of the article was not to do the
creamery an injustice, but to show that
the company by adopting new packages
was determined that not even a few tub3
should have a bad taste.

For an airy, light, flippant notice of our

the above to the people of Lincoln county.
Its object is to magnify Mr. Beeler's
services and belittle those of Supt. Lang

civil government ; Mr. Langford is "setting

Langford taught physiology and illus
trated his lessons with boues", but he also
taught several other studies numbers,

proud by running the city a thousand
aonars iu uent for an expensive!
and unnecessary luxury when this vear's
levy did not pay last years bills by over

some loud howlintr. but the tax must be
paid all the same.
