has been followed on all other streets
where permanent new paving raa been
ordered. Hcary galvanised pipe and

and the servioe pipes are cartld to trie
curb In front of every lot regardless of
whether they are vacant or covered with
buildings. Thla Is In accordance with the
plan to do the work In auch a manner that
there will be no occasion for the gas com
any to cut the paving for any purpose
for the next twenty yeara.
The work of carrying tne new twelve
Inch main down South Main street from
Broadway to Ninth avenue la also being
pushed. .An eight-Inch atub was atvo laid
yesterday from the Broad wav main to the
curb line of North Main street. In view of
the possibility of that portlrn of the street
becoming so densely ponulatetl with busi

mailer main will be insufficient. It will
then be unncc.aiary to disturb the Biral

the building of the Ragles' club house, th
Increasing demands of the auditorium and

GRAND JURORS AP SPORTIVE
ftararaen All County Officer Before
-Them and Induce Them to
The grand Jury practically finished its
work lat evening and while waiting for a
witness , to conclude the only remaining
caa0 planned and successfully executed a
few practical Jokes. Sheriff McCaffery was
Instructed to bring In County Auditor Han
nan and to tell him to fetch the records of
the proceeding of the Board of County
Supervisors. Hsnnan took the matter most
seriously and went upstairs Into the grand
Jury room lugging a book aa big a a barn
door. He was solemnly sworn In the usual
way and asked a number of preliminary
questions. One was if he nad bought any
cigars at a popular cigar store since April
1. He admitted he had. Then he was
solemnly asked if he had any of them on
hand and answered with equal seriousness
that he had not.
'Well, then, can you get some?" Assist
ant County Attorney Ourcn asked. The
Joke soaked through In a few seconds amid
shouts of laughter.
District Court Clerk Harry Brown was
the next victim. Then cam Sheriff Mo
Caffery himself, followed by County Treas
urer Mitchell and Auditor Berghausen.
The telephone was handed to each victim
when he admitted lie could get some .more
cigar and everal boxe were Immediately
ordered and delivered.
The report that all of the county officers
had been ummoned before the grand Jury
flashed through the building and there
was suppressed excitement about the time
the newspaper gang invaded It. Th grand
Jurymen realized they had to square them
elve In ome way with the reporter.
And they did It. Every reporter was offi
cially notified by Sheriff McCaffery to ap

Dog Catcher Has
Very Poor Luck with
Badge No. Thirteen
City Comes Near Losing; Its Official
Because cf Hoodoo Upon the
Council llluftf came near lowing the best
dug ratcher Ihe town-has ever had. The
Incident occurred yesterday morning when
the dl.-ti ilniti"ti of poiht stars w as under
way. 1 he police M i k of stais are num
bered from one up. Ktar No. U had not
hern Issued to any men. her of the force,
and as it was as good, h!g. blight and
shiny as any other, it was assigned to
PoundmasteD Jackson, the colored official
who haa done sm h excellent service for
the last two years. Jackson Is sn ex
officlo memher of the force and his star
is required by the regulations. It wns
pinned on his coat in a light too dim for
the number to be discerned by him, and
it accompanied him on his first rounds
It only required an hour to convince him
that something was wrong. The first tiree
dogs he cauKlit bit him.- The fourth got
away, carrying the piano-wire noose. Then
when the cart was appi r aching the pound
the three dug on the Inside made a oot
ball rush and burst out the end of the cage.
They went yelping away to home and free
dom. Jackson men drove disconsolately
back to town, stopping at an old colored
mamma's home to tell his troubles.
"What's dat you all got on yo' coat,
Silas?" she aFked, eyeing the big star
fiercely.' "That's mah baldge," replied
Jackson, rubbing the places where the dogs
"Am yo' foolish enough to 'spos yo'
can ketch anything but baid luck warln'
dat hoodoo?" she asked Fternly. "Yo' go
an' fro dat thing away and pin er pie pan
on yo' breast cf o" kalnt git no other tar."
Jackson then saw for the first time that
it was the fearful thirteen. He tore it
from hlHjcoat, wrapped It In a bit of news
paper and carried It gingerly to his wagon.
Then he drove direct to the police station
and handed the package to Sergeant Nlcoll
wlth the Information that the star must be
taken back or his resignation, .would be
forthcoming.- No - attempt, was made -te
combat his superstition and another big
star was offered him. In the bright light
uf the central office It gleamed like a loco
motive headlight, revealing the figures 23.
"It's twenty-three for the dog catcher,
Mlstah Nicolls," shouted Jackson as he re
coiled from the star and started to leave
Ihe room. He was lured back and the
atmosphere cleared by the subutltutlon of
star No. 18. Wearing that star, Jackson's
first round yielded a harvest of eighteen
dogs, and all were safely landed In the
