Chas. Devere, a painter
soberly held a positi n in the
paint fchop for the last six weeks, has at
tracted considerable attention during the
past week. He - boarded with a man
named Brown, on Peal street. Mr.
Devere was a professional and artistic
painter and came here from Central City,
this state, alone; last week his wife came,
and the firs night there was trouble, and
Saturday Mrs. Devere appealed to the
officers for protection, and was escorted
about the city by one of them. The
trouble seemed to be that they could not
agree, but rather than go to law to be
separated th-y tried to live together, and
yestcrdav, after being at war here for
three days, peace was made and both
prepared to leave the city. Their bag
gage was transported to the- depot last
niirht. but they themselves had not left
up to this morning, but ail seemed to !
right between the two.

An ordinance was passed at t!ie

and of gretit importance to the health of
the people, and appaaraoce ,'jf J.he city;
that is the one ordering the filling of the
old creek beds which run between Main
and Peal and Vine streets and through
some lots adjoining these streets. The
filling of them will prevent stagnant
water from gathering and prevent the
originating of disease from that source,
and these lots and streets once tilled will
greatly enhance their value and . that of
adjoining proberty, by bringing them to
a grade that they caa be used. . The
work of filling these holes will furnish
steady employment to a large force of
men, and will also furnish a dump for
the dirt to be removed from ona or more
streets through the hills, if opened up.
