Tho raise of 70 mills in Ploasant Hill
by the board of supervisors is a very un
just alTair to that township. Tho board
attomptod to raiso tho valuation of llvo

piok out tho valuo of livo stock and raise
it individually tho increase was mado on
all personalty, which will cuubu mer

Thirteen gentlemen with wheols (par
don ub, wo mean bicycles) from Hod
uiouu invauou our cuy iobi nunuay.
With ono or two exceptions thoy were
tho siimo jolly band that got badly hyp
notized through the influonco of four
gallonB of new milks which wfia harm
lessly supplied them at Smith's pond on
tho previous Sunday. Wo havo the
authority of Tiik Chief for this last
Item, and of courso that paper, liko our
selves, Is Infallible Thero was a heavy
wind blowing on Sunday foronoon, and
the boys from the county Beat wore
obliged to "pump" for all thoy wore
worth. Somo ef them woro protty bad
ly usod up, notably Bart Wright, At
Albright and W. A. Sherwood. In fact,
if wo had not seen their whoois, wo
would havo boon tomptod to Imagine
that tho whole crowd bad beon, for 20
miles, wasting their utmost energies try
ing to produce in unison a top B ilat
from oach of 13 asthmatic cornots at
least, that's just what their facos indi
cated. Wright and Albright came into
town last, throw their wheels down on
the mlddlo of main street, and pitched
themselves In a corpse-liko fashion on
the nearest sidewalk. As thoy lay thoro
at full stretch, thoy scemsd to wish that
eomo of our benevolent cltlzons would
dig a deop gravo, fill it with ice water,
thon empty thorn In, saying a prayer
over thorn and bidding n longfarowcll to
tholr respected hardwaro clork and
worthy grocory merchant. Charloy
Landniesser headed olT to shock tho
tendorly religious and Sabbatarian eon
sibilities of our blacksmith by strongly
Buggosting to him tho absolute necessity
for a now crank on the pedal of his
wheel, and during his ubsence tho two
Boml-unconeciouB gontlemon woro par
tially rovived. Whon they roolized,
however, that wo had nothing here but.
that dreadful now milk, and that nono
of our worthy citizens would tax his
conscience with the foarful responsibili
ty of supplying them with it, they re
solved on going right away to Blue Hill.
So thoy commissioned Charley Robin
son to telegraph over there, ordering
dinner for thirteen and "new milk" for
eixty-flvo. Wo havo not heard of tho
gentlomon since, but we fool certain that
that beautifully golden colored nnd
finely transparent now milk, which is bo
plontiful in Bluo Hill, had an ontiroly
different effect on tholr physical system
to the naturally adulterated substance
which comes direct from those unobtru
sively useful animals at Smith's pond.
This unlucky number should drop off,
or add a man to their band. Bladen
