J. O. Wiles has put in a crosswalk
from his restaurant across tho street.
This is a good improvement, but owing
to tho deep mud on tho crosswalk at
tho corner and tho on tiro lack of walk
at other places it was tho city's right
to put in this walk. It is not right for
privato citizens, in order to save their
patronage, to bo compelled to put iu
walks when tho necessity for them is
caused by others.

flovoro lighting, having done heroic
Horvico in tho following large battles,
besides many minor ones nnd skirm
ishes: Cold Harbor, Antietom, Wilder
ness,' Petersburg and Vicksburg.
At the close of tho war he became
a farmer by occupation and in 1800 was
iiurriedtoJullaA Stem, atllurlington
Vt. To this union two children were
