Trouble With Vault Door
Treasurer Henry has been sub
mitting to a good deal of “chaffing"
the past few days, to all of which lie
accepts good naturedly, of course.
Kor some time past, the door of the
j vault in his office i as been causing a
j good deal of trouble, the combination
having a disinclination to accept the
manipulations of the tumblers. Sat
! urday evening lie closed the door with
much difficulty, but thought nothing
especially of it, but a short time after,
having occasion to get into the vault
to accommodate a belated taxpayer,
the combination would not work and
in spite of any amount of coaxing re
mained obdurate. That evening and
the better part of Sunday, efforts
were put forth to invite, plead, pound,
thresh, maltreat and in every manner
make the door to yield to the press
ure and skill brought to bear upon it,
but in vain. Monday morning, as a
last resort. Cashier Hansen, who can
almost prove an X-ray optical vision,
took the matter in iiand and with his
expert knowledge of such matters cor
rectly diagnosed it a case of internal
disorder from too close association of
two of the tumblers, which would not
separate and take their respective
stations. With the aid of J. I. I>e
pew with a small drill and Wes Pedler
later with a larger driil, our expert
cashier friend almost immediately
separated the combatants and swung
open the door. Laying aside levity,
it is a fact that Mr. Hansen, with his
knowledge of safe combination locks,
seems to have almost a prescience of
where the trouble lies, and lias here
tofore many times came to the aid of
those who get into trouble with the
pesky critters, and Treasurer Henry
has reason to feel very grateful we
have one among us who is able to re
lieve exasperating situations of tha
kind. It is believed also that the set
tling cf the vault work has to a more
or less extent settled, binding the
door gradually till it finally refused
to perform further service. Had Mr.
Hansen not been on hand, it would
have necessitated sending for an ex
pert at not a little expense to the
Rev. Powers to Gibbon.
Rev. Powers, who for some time
past lias been in charge of the pastor
ate of tlie Baptist church in thiscity.
has accepted a call to Gibbon, this
state, and will preach his farewell
sermon here next Sunday evening,
the other churches giving over their
evening services that all may hear
the farewell address of the Baptist
pastor. Rev. Powers and wife have
made many friends in the city and
all who have met the estimable couple
will sincerely regret their leaving for
another field of labor, while their
best wishes will follow them. They
will probably move to Gibbon about
the middle of next week.
Business Change
On Mondav morning of this week,
the business deal whereby Dr. W. T. j
Chase sold his drug store to Messrs j
A. D. Hinman. of St. Edwards, and
J. C. Vaughn, of this city, was com
pleted. invoice now taking place and
the new men w ill re-open for business
as soon as the invoicing is concluded,
at least by the 20th instant. Mr.
Hinman invests not with the inten
tion of moving here, but to place his
son. Harry Hinman, in a business in
the city, and may later transfer bis
interest to the son. Mr. Vaughn is
well and favorably known to our peo
ple as a traveling man who has made
this his headquarters for the past two
years or more, while Mr. Hinman,
junior, has been with us for several
years and also well known to our peo
ple. The new druggists have the
best wishes of all for their successful
business venture.
