The Wesleyans Please. "The Wesleyau quartet sang to an en thusiastic house , Monday evening , in J the Congregational church. While the programme was apparently short , the numerous responses to encores made the programme sufficiently long for a full evening's pleasure. The quartet has inade marked improvement since its last appearance in our city , and now igives an entertainment altogether meri torious and entertaining. They sing better music and in a more artistic man gier. They made an impression in their concert , Monday night which will be A-aluable to them in future visits to our city. Their reader , A. Roy Isreal , was suffer ing from an attack of tonsilitis and only appeared in one minor number ; but , although laboring under painful disad vantages , clearly indicated that he could -lill his part of the programme with cred it , under normal conditions. Ought to Prohibit All ot Them. The temperance people are feeling somewhat agrieved over the action of Mayor Kelleyin prohibiting the further pasting of the advertisements announc ing Rev. E. O. Taylor's lecture , on the sidewalks of the city. The action was perfectly proper , though the reason given does not seem to be adequate. This miserable pasting and daubing business has been carried too far over the sidewalks - -walks of the city , and it should all be prohibited ; there should be no discrimi nation against temperance lecture an nouncements , however. A Small Blaze. J. S. McBrayer had a small fire at the 4arm ( the old Luman Howe place ) , Sunday - -day noon , which caused damage to the extent of $25 to $50. The fire originated -and was confined to tl e roof of the kitchen part of the farm house , and was probably caused by a spark which , fanned by the stiff breeze , soon threat ened the destruction of the building. Prompt workho\veversoou extinguished the flames , with the loss as above indi cated. The house is occupied by ] , A. -Brinton and fatuity. SMew Supreme Medical Examiner. The board of directors of the supreme sledge of the Star of Jupiter at their aneeting , Wednesday night , elected Dr. J. A. Gunn. supreme medical examiner of the order , vice Dr. L. J.

But there are over one hundred unrented boxes available , o no one need deprive themselves of his modern convenience. See ?
