r It was the intention of The Demo
crat to cive a short history of
fXtizens Meat Market this week but
the proprietor George G Schwalm
tias been so busy all week waiting on
Christmas -customers that we have
been unable to gain the information
desired for the article and must con
tent ourselves v ith a short description
of the market as it now appears
George is noied for his tasttin dis
play and it is well known that a meat
market is a hard institution to decor
ate in anything approaching style
but George has done the -impossible
and his shop looks like a fairy palace
if such a thing can be Hundreds of
feet of hmilax and evergreens have
beia strung on the walls and ceiling
of the market and whole carcasses of
mutton and veal neatly and artistically
carved hang from hooks around the
room The lruit and vegetable boxes
and shelves are almost hidden in mass
es of green from which the delicate
colors of apples pears lemons and
bananas peep bashfully From the
ceiling behind the counter hangs an
immense bell of smilax profusely dec
orated with freth roses and
the clapper being forfned
of a b que f roses Freshly cut and
jucy lokin staaks chops and roasts
adorn the counter and meat blocks
and they in turn aie decorated with
evergreens and flowers From the
rear wall hangdiens of dressed tur
kevs and at the side is an enormous
Hock of prairie chickens and -grouse
which would make the eyes of an east
ern hunter sparkle with delight
Any of our readers who miss visit
ing the Citizens Meat Market this
week will miss a rare treat and those
who fail to buy will miss a grea er one
George has two men helping him and
they are all busy By the way we
forgot to mention that George has
seven or eight large pails of fresh
oysters on hand The hungry four
is out of existence this winter and
oysters do not command the premium

Engeno 3Syrs Trial
Eugene Myers of near Sparks who
was arrested about ten days ago on
the charge of stealing cattle and re
ceiving stolen cattle had his prelimi
ntry trial before Judge Towne yester
day and was bound over to the district
court in the sura of 500 This is th
same case in which Edmond George is
concerned and in trying to shield
George Myers wove a very strong web
about himself Tho authorities seem
to sympathize with young Myers and
the strongest evidence against him
was given by himself It is the gener
al impression that Myers was not in
tentionally guilty of anj criminal act
although it was proven and he admits
that he assisted in driving the cattle
stolen from McNair and Keefe to
Laraoreauxs place where they were
sold His testimony left the impres
sion that he was trying to shield some
one else supposedly George and so
his stories on the direct and cross ex
amination did not hang together at all
Of course neither he nor George have
as yet been proven guilty but we must
confess that so far they have not
bettered their condition any by their
Progressive High Five

A Bnninegg Chance
Monday our city was treated to a
very great surprise but withal a pleas
ant one when it was reported that
George Elliott had purchased the drug
store and stock of Sparks Hornbv
and would not leave town at the close
of his term of offict as county clerk
A little investigation developed the
truth of the rumor and at about 11 o
clock the change took place Mr El
liott secured the services of C R Wat
son as pharmacist and one can hardly
realize that the store has changed
hands To the new proprietor we ex
tend our best wishes and predict that
he will make a success of the business
George falls into place in the store
just like an oldtimef and will probably
blossom out into a pharmacist one of
these days
