Last week in describing the run
away of the ice team we tried to
give Will Clarkson a little puff for
being so good natured as to tell the
men whose wagons were broken
that he would settle the bill. We
related the incident as near right
as we were informed at that time
and meant no harm nor had any
thought of giving offense to any
one. On Saturday afternoon while
walking up the street we heard a
voice say "There's a dliar"
"There's the fellow that told ad-
lie. " We were surprised upon
looking around to find that .Will
Clarkson was the speaker and re
ferred to the-editor of this , paper.
He explained -later that the team
did not get away from him as WQ
stated' in our account of it. We1

The date for the concert of the

been changed to Tuesday evening ,
March 10th , instead of the day af
ter , on account of the meeting
of the Farmer's Institute that

pleasing character. The overture
is the one to the old favorite opera
of the Bohemian Girl which has
been liked so well for the last 30
years. Then there is a Valsc Mil-
itarie that has a dash to it like the
Espana Waltz that was' played at

songs Salute to Erin , containing
old favorites among which will be
