Yesterday afternoon a delivery team
was passing up Broadway. Before it
loft this street and passed upon Main
the horses were started by the driv er
into a run , and this gait was kept up
the whole length of North Main street ,
jeopardizing the safety of all upon the
street. Such cases should receive
prompt attention at the hands of the po
lice. A few lines would destroy the
charm and fun in fast driving.
The Broadway Methodist church is
beginning its sixth week of revival
work. Nightly from ono to two hundred
persons are unable to gain admission , so
great is the interest. There have been

"I BOO tliere Is some complaint be

ecru. "Where's your book of ordin
ances ? Just look at it tuid see whether
it's our fault. You see the ordinance

The officers ought not to bo blamed for
not enforcing the ordinance. The
ordinance itself is at fault , and ought to

stop to the spilling of dirt along the
streets. "
The teamsters have their bide of the
controversy. They declare that they
must have their wagon boxes so made as
to be loose , and so as to bo easily taken
apart in unloading. Otherwise their
work of unloading will bo so great and
so slow as to knock nil profits olT. They

suggest that an ordinance forbidding

Landlord and Tenant.
Judge Thornell was able to appear in
person yesterday morning to preside in
the district court. The trial of the case
of Mrs. Jane Richardson against Colonel
C. R. Scott was resumea and occupied all
the day. The plaintiff has for her at
torneys Flickingor Bros , and Judre { _
Ford. Colonel Scott has called to hie
assistance Colonel Sapp. The evidence
has not thus far been of to spicy a na
ture as was generally expected , although
there were some streaks of humor and
gleams ol sharpness yesterday. Mrs.
Richardson was at ono time on Colonel
Scott's farm ns a tenant , and trouble
arose. It was claimed by her that the
landlord was overbearing and tyranni
cal , and that ho violated their contract
by forcibly taking possession of the
farm , ejecting her therefromand using
such abusive language to her as to make
him liable for damages on account ol
slander. She also claims damages be
cause of her arrest for violating
an injunction restraining her
from going onto the farm. She
makes up nuite a bill against the land
lord , and the present suit is to get the
bill audited and allowed. The other
side of the contest is to the effect , that
Mrs. Richurdbon acted so as to exasper
ate a saint , and to muko an even more
evenly tempered man than Scott lly of !
the handle. It is claimed that she
allowed cockle burrs to spring up all
over the farm and grow luxuriously ,
and that the property was bo used or
misused as _ to cause it to depreciate in
value so rapidly as to necessitate prompt
action to save it. Various suits wore
started , including ejectment proceed
ings , injunction , contempt , habeas
corpus , and others , in which Colonel
Scott simply sought such nth-antnges as
ho could gain through the courts. The
case before Judge Aylesworth in which
a number of fine bunchesof cockle burrs
were introduced in evidence , is still
fresh in the memory of those who heard
any of the evidence. The present suit
is a gathering up of all the old oases , n
potpourri , sharply spiced , and before
the end is reached will doubtless fur
nish more amusement for those whc
have little else to do besides hanging
about the court room and watch pro

The Y. M. O. A. Gymnasium.
This institution is now in complete
running order and is growing in public
favor every day. These of our citizens
who have not inspected the rooms since
the now equipments have been put ir
place should do so at their earliest op
portunity. There is now in use the fol
lowing apparatus : Three ehest ma
chines , one pulley rowing machine
neck and wrist machine all of A. G.
Spuulding & Bro.'s improved stylo-
pneumatic rowing machine with revolv
ing handles und sliding seat , horizontal
burs , chest bars , swinging rings , travel
ing rings , rope climbing ladder , hori
zontal ladder , climbing rone. In addi
tion to these are the dumo bolls , both
wooden und iron , of various sizes , In
dian clubs , mats , etc. In the same room
are the bath rooms , three in number ,
with dressing rooms in connection , hot
and cold water supply , water closet
waste bowl , etc. , the number of batht
now averaging over fifty per week.
Although the shower baths are intended
more for taking quick baths imme
diately after taking exercise in the
gymnasium , still they are growing
quite popular with busincbs men ant
others who cannot attend regularly the
gymnasium classes.
The membership tickets which arc
supplied at a very reasonable figure
( $6 per year ) , entitle the holder to al
privileges of the gymnasium and bath
rooms. The only extra charge is foi
those who do not dcsiro to furnUh thoii
own towels , a ticket good for twenty-five
towels being sold /Xcthun only aver
aging 2o per towel , just about enough t (
cover the washing. The bathrooms arc
open and in running order from 8:30 : a
m. to 0:30 : p. m. ; the gymnasium fron :
the same hour in the morning to 0:15 : p
m. , every day except Sunday , thui

Wednesday and Saturday afternoons at 4
o'clock. Parents , step in sometime and
see what a chance there is for your boys.
The evening class meets ns heretofore
at 8 o'clock every evening except
Wednesday and Saturday. The ladles'
class being an outside feature , in not vet

very Inviting appearance to any ono dis
posed to develop his muscle ana improve
his physique.
A few necessary regulations notice
able for the absence of red tape are
posted in a conspicuous place. From
those we see that the floor is open for
general exercise all the day excepting
during class drills. At these drills the
members are always put through a brisk
exercise with wooden dumbbells , the
movements being arranged In physio
logical order and in sufficient number
to bring into play every muscle of the
boilv. This drill is followed usually by
work on the nnrulol bars or Indian clubs.

for them a few minutes after they were
gone. The police wore notified of the
lo-s. About 4 o'clock Officer Unthnnk
noticed a fellow passing up Broadway
who was slightly under the influence of
"benzine. " Ho had upon his arm a
coat and vest and the officer decided to
investigate. The follow was taken to
the station , where ho gave the name of
F. M. White. Ho was searched , and
among his effects were two pairs of
glasses and a pawn ticket. Ono pair
was identified by Mr. Furguson as his
own. The pawn ticket was issued by
Goldstein upon an overcoat , which ho
now has. No doubt all the articles were
stolen. The follow will get a soft job at
the expense of the city , and no ono but
himself will be sorry for it.

Mrs. Lucy Clark , wife of William

siding in the rear of his btoro , corner of
Broadway and Stutsman streets , has for
poveral days been In a distressing con
dition of mind. It is feared that bho
will have to bo taken to an asylum for
treatment , although her friends are
endeavoring to care Jor her here , in the
hope that relief may come without re
moving her. Ono of the saddest feat
ures to the case is that her delusions
center as against her husband , sno be
lieving thut he has another wife , that
ho is trying to rob her of what little
money she has , and when ho appears in
her presence she becomes terribly ex
cited , so that ho is unable to care for
her as he would gladly do. The fact
that she is in expectation of soon be
coming a mother is another of the
peculiarly sad features of the case. She
has during the past two or three days
caused several quite sensational scones
in that neighborhood , it not being
realized until of late that she was so out
of balance mentally.

papers wore ibsued for the arrest of D.

case and that of Fitzgerald will bo tried

during the afternoon and in view of this
fact court was adjourned for the day at

Records of Good Deeds.
Youth's Companion : M. Emile do
Girurdinu French journalist and states
man , borne years ago originated a plan
for a local book of archives in each town
or village , in each ward of a city , which
should record , not the routine proceed
ings of the locul governing bodies , but
the noteworthy acts , the good deedstho
instances of devotion nnd courage that
bhould occur in the town or village.
"I would propose still more than this , "
said M. do Girurdln , "whenever a man ,
a woman or oven a child yes , above all ,
a child had performed an act , which
commnnd udmirntlon , the information
concerning it should bo officially com
municated to the community In which
the person was born.
"This deed should bo formally in
scribed in a register kept especially for
tnis purpose , which would become the
Book of Gold of the town. What an en
couragement to well-doing it would bo !
"Tho newspaper is too perishable ; it
is read only to be thrown awav. This
register , however , would not perish , but
remain in the archives. The village ,
the town , SB but the family on a larger
scale. A register such ns this , full of a
record of good deeds , would be to u vil
lage 11 lie a patent of nobility to u fam
ily. "
This idea remained dormant for a
long time , but a bill is now before the
French chambers which embodies the
proposition of M. do Girardin , and it is
likely to bo favorably considered.
It is intended , it is true , jto cover more
than Do Girardin proposed , since the
language of the bill provides thut the
record shall include "all the facts , acci
dents , etc. , of a nature to interest the
commune and to form the basis of its
history. " < "
In the United States town histories
are of ton written ; but they are , in the
majority of cases , mere formal records ,
and the bruvo und.intpirlng deeds that
they record only too elton rest upon un
trustworthy tradition or mere hearbay.
There are manyj , homely events , not
deemed worthy of recording by town
historians , which. , nevertheless , in
scribed in such a 'Book ' of God , " would
have an influence for good.
A Day's Work.
From the Family Phybicias : The
amount of work some people got through
is simply enormous. Few people are
harder worked thuq a London physician
in active practice. We know a doctor
who Eoldoin gets more than four Naurs'
sleep out of the twenty-four. He says
that it is not that ho couldn't do with
more , but it is as much us ho can get.
Many busy men are constantly at work
of some kind or other from 8 in the
morning till 12 at night. Some , of
course , break down , but others do this
year after year , apparently without any
detriment to their health. Instances
are known or professional men who
hnve not been in bed for three weeks ut
a time. These sound almost like trav
elers' tales , but they nro true , although
of course , they are exceptional cases.
It is astonishing what interest and
energy will do in enabling a man
to dispense with rest. It has
been said that the twenty-four hours
might bo advantageously divided
into three equal parts eight hours for
sleep , eight for meals , exerci'BO , recrea
tion , tc. a&d tight ( av atfttal work.
Few men really require more than eight
hours' sleep , but the majority of us have
to do considerable more than eight
hours' work in the day , It is not so
much that a man wishes for the work as
that it is forced upon him. Ho , per
haps , is the only person who can
perform a certain duty , and when , us is
often the case , it is a quostlon of life and
death , it is almost impossible to refuse.
Many people can never force themselves
to do more than u certain amount of
mental work ; they get nervous and
headachy , and then U Is nil over with
them. Forced work , ns a rule , tells on
a mrn much more rapidly than purely
voluntnrr work , for in the former case
it is usually associated with anxiety.
Real overwork gives rise to loss of mem
ory , n general sense of fatigue , ndd par
ticularly of discomfort about the head ,
poorness of a ppetlte , lowness of spirits ,
and other similar symptoms. It is
worthy thut injuries more than rcul
work care killed the cut. Some people
nro so huppilv constituted thnt they
never worry much about anything ,
whilst others are in a fever of anxiety
on every trivial occasion.
The Only Mne That Gets There.
It bus been well said by a distin
guished writer that "tho Michigan
Central Is the only 'Niagara Falls
Route' in the country. "
It is the only railroad thnt runs direct
ly by the fulls nnd stops its trains ut a
point from which all parts of the falls
and the rapids nro in full viow. From
this point , culled Fulls View , the scene
from the Michigan Central train ,
whether in its summer setting of emor-
nld or its winter setting of crystal , is
ono of unexampled grandeur and sub
limity. As it Is on the direct route
to NCw York , Boston , mm Now Eng-
lund. no cast-bound traveler should fail
to take advantage of it.
