Dr. Siggins has purchased the fine
property on the corner of Granite and
Sixth streets, of Herman Ilerold and is
making improvements on his new pro
perty. The work on this house is said
to be the very finest, especially on the
wood-work inside, and as the location is
an admirable one, the doctor was very
fortunate to secure the place. We noticed
lie recognized Arbor day, as a few small
trees adorn his lot since yesterday.
"Job" Stevens, a man who has no
particular occupation, imbibed a little
too much "fire-water" this afternoon, and
became furiated He found a man nam
ed "Scotty." at McVey's saloon, who, it
seems, was not a particular friend of his,
and began insulting him, and was about
to law violent hands upon him, when

struck the man. Stevens was arrested
and locked up. The two men appear
for trial at 4 o'clock this afternoon.

passed in the history of the country for
the past two mouths and if you want to
go you will never find a more favorable
time than the present. Abingdon, Hi.,
Argus. This excursion train will arrive
in this city tomorrow, and will take pass
engers all along the line. A large crowd
is expected as they carry passengers from
all eastern C. B. & Q. points.
Last evening witnessed a very mjoy
able event in which quite a number of
the young people of this ci'y were par
ticipants. The event was that of a party
given in honor of Miss Engalls, of
Hastings, who is the guest of the Misses
Weckbach. The usual amusements were
indulged in, after which refreshments in
abundance were served until all were
sure their satisfaction was complete.
The Misses Weckbach deserve great
credit for the manner in which
they furnished 60 much enjoyment
to their guests, and the event will eyer
be remembered as a delightful one.
Those present were Misses Engalls, Wig-gi.-nhorn,
Ashland; Tilla Lenhoff, Maggie
Campbell, Maggie 0Rourk, May Lath-
rop, Myrtle Lathrop, Julia Oliver, Laura
HJiinackle, Kate- Hemplc, Kato and Amel

Derrick and Will Streight.
The Perkins House is undergoing a
thorough renovation, and Mr. Kiddle,
the congenial proprietor, is sparing no
time and expense to make this house one
of the foremost in this part of the State.
A good hotel is an accommodation that
is something this city is 6adly in need of,
and Mr. Kiddle will do our city proud if
he fulfills his plans, and we feel quite
confident he will. A good deal of com
plaint has been made iu this city by the
traveling public, for want of proper ac
commodation, but if this gentleman will
only do as we feel quite certain he will,
it would throw out inducements t" out
siders who steer clear of this city today
just on that account. Such an enterprise
would certainly be bighty beneficial to
all, especially tlie proprietor, who would
reap a lich harvest if ho will only work
his card right. A city the si." of Pl-ifts-mouth,
an 1 with as much business, would
never let a good, energetic business man
leave to go to other fields for want of
patronage, if the man will only do what

Whiider's restaurant, which was gotten
up and served in a way that speaks well
bath for Mr. Whisler and the switchman.
The cass of Maud Emery was
brought up before the district court this
morniDg. This case proved to be more
brief than a large number had expected
to hear. She plead guilty and no further
examination was made in the case except
ing that the judge required the prosccu
tiug attorney to bring up a number of
witnesses in order to prove how much
nuisance and annoyance her house had
afforded the community, in order that
he might properly ascess her fine.
The case which held the court all
day yesterday was that of the Gale Sul-key-llarrow
Co. vs. E. G. McLaughlin.
It appears that an agent for the company
had - misrepresented some agricultural
implements to this man McLaughlin, who
is a farmer living near Greenwood, and
bad talked him into signing a note. Me-
Laughlin had several witnesses who ha 1
heard this agent say that if the machine
did not prove as satisfactory as it had for
the few minutes' test ha had given it to
illustrate it good qualities, be would
not be obliged to keep it. However, af
ter McLaughlin had taken the machine
and had worked it only a short time, he
found that he had been badly sold on the
article, which he refused to pay for when
the note became due. The company then
brought it into court, and after tho wit
nesses had been examined the jury only
went out for a short time, when they
brought in a verdict in faror of defen
dant. Tommie Beverage, a boy about
twelve years of age, had his right leg
serioukly fractured immediately above
the knee yesterday afternoon about 3:150
o'clock. Bert Holmes drove a lig up to
Captain Palmer's residence to take Gov
ernor Thayer and wife to the depot to
meet the ' flyer," going tlirough here at
4:20. A he was about an hour too soon
the Governor and wife did not return, so
a large number of school children, as is
the case nearly every d:iy, when any ve
hicle chances to pas at the time school
is dismissed, jumped on the bujgy anil
commenced making so much noise that
the boy's cries could not be heard, lie
had caught his leg in the wheel, and was
thrown around as the wheel turned for
neatly half a block. When the- hors-s
were stopped it was discovered that the
boy's leg was broken above the knee, ami
just below it was badly cut. This should
certainly be a warning to those children
who are incessantly jumping on and off
of vehicles as they move along the street.
The iujured boy was carried to Dr. Liv
ingston's office, where his limb was set
and the other injuries attended to as soon

out of the clerk's office this year than the
democratic wolf, gaant and hungry.
