It was quite amusing to see how peoplo
looked and acted on the streets jesterday
morning. F.icrj body who had to beout was
rouflled up almost beyond recognition and

THAT MASQUERADE BALL.
contained an ac-
Lastvvcek tho K.U.LK
count of a grand society masquerade ball to
bo held in the opera house on "the night of
the 2'Jth. Now it transpires that the Turn
Varin society had been preparing to .hold a
mask ball in the opera on New j-ears eve.
They claim that il the society ball was held
two nighU before theirs, it would spoil their
ball. Having the opera in their hands,
thej now refuse tho use of it for the first
named ball for the rcn-ons above stated.
Tho managers of tho societj- ball aro in
consequence, highly indignant, and declare
that they will hold the ball anyhow and will
announce the place In a diyor two. The
Turn Varin people say that when Mr. Kroe
nert let tho opera to tho other folk- ho was
not informed that it was for the purpose of
holding such a ball, and that if he did know
hc would not havo let it. It is unfortunate
that there has been n misunderstanding in
this matter and that two such- promising
events should come into collision.
THE STATE VS. C. J. CLAWSON.
The all-absorbing topic of the day is the
coming theatrical treat "Tho Penal ot Sa
voy," ") our reporter was happy to accept a
kind invitation to attend a full dress rehear
sal with regular stage appointment in our
opera hou-o last evening. We can safely
predict that tho audience who gre t them
next Thursday evening will receive a
most agrecablo surprise for it seems
scarcely possible that a party
ofamatures could get down to such excell
ent stage business as wa-diplajcd by the
entire cast, not u single incident occurred to
imp ilm linrinnnv of tho entire fivo acts of
this beautiful drama, everything passing oil
in a manner that would have rcllec ted credit
upon a regular organized comp-my.
Our opera house will doubtless be
crowded to it- utmost capacity upon both
productions of this coming success and our
citizens will do well to reserve their seat-
without delaj. The box sheet- for Thurs
dav evening open at nin" o. lock this morn
ing. THE COMING MASQUERADE.
The masquerade ball tint is to be giv en by
the "Foro-t City Social Club," on the even
ing of Deo mber -0th nt tho opera house, is
the all ab-orbing subject of ennvcrsation
imiiiio those; who have received invitation-
to this swell aifur.
Many have fnllj determined upon attend
ing and have oidered suits or are now pre
paring the awkward, comie', handsome or
elegant costumes which aro to di-gui-e the
wearer, puzzle and deceive the participant-,
and give opportunity for an evening of un
restricted enjojment, mirth and plea-un-.
On the other hand, some of the bojs think
l.u.inn.. lo.i ilull and times too hard tol
give up their good, kind, Soto Slo for,
a single evening's cn.oj ments let themibo as
super! itively plea-ant as pos-ible. The"re ady
relief is not laing around loose at pre-'-nf,
and old Fro-ly Jack and tho custom? of the
holidays are developing and presenting a
trrcat nrinv excellent openings for the plac
ing of varied and large installments of
filthy lucre. .
But wat's the hods as long as you're 'appy
fellows? It all goes in a life time, any how,
you know, and can be .laved in somo other
direction, so all might as well compromise
tho matter by curbing their ambitions to be
the grandest mogul, greatest masher, or tho
most esthetic and exquisitely soulful dudo
in tho part. Come down from the lofty
height of nmbition and pride; dres. in a

BARGAINS IN REAL ESTATE.
Mrs. Il S. Curran had .Mr C. J. Claw.-on
up before Justice Hobbs ye-terday charged
w it'n di-turbing her peaco and quiet, as the
formidable state document read-. l'rank
Dale appeared for the state and Mr. Claw
son conducted lil own case.
A- near as can be gathered the case is this:
The building in wliich Mrs. Curran lives be-leu'g-to
Mr. Guthrie. Mr. Claw son occu
pies tho lower part and Mrs. Curran lives
up stair nnd wt believe proposes to run a
dress making shop. It appears that infor
mation was given to Mr. Guthrie that Mrs.
Curran and her girl conducted a disorderly
and disreputable place and he determined to
fire her out. He inv ited Mr. Clavvson to go
with him :cs"a witne-s that he offered to return
the woman her rent. While in the hou-c
the woman claims that Mr. Claw son ex
pressed himself in a manner that in
sinuateel that they kept a hou-e' of ill
shane: henco the o.se. After
hearing the cstunony and the argument,
Ju-tice Hobbs thought that tho defendant
had not intended anj thing wrong, but ow ing
to the preponderance of evidence against
him, he would linie to give verdict against
him. He would merely decide that hc pay
tbo co-t of the case. Mr. Claw-son at the
sugge-tion of a friend gave notice of an ap
peal. Thi- aroused Krank Dale, wbo sprang
to bis feet, put both band- iuto his overcoat
pockets and drew it around his slender
boely. Ho straightened himself up and
made his low to the court, then came forth
one of the most pointed arguments Mr.
Dalo could manufacture. He said that all
through the case he felt that the defendant
had done nothing to de-erv o much fine or
punishment, but now he had changed his
mind, e?cing the disposition he manifested
now. That a. the court had not elctlmtel
nameel the fine, ho wonld demaud that he be
fined $100 in order to justify hira in carrving
the case into the higher court.
As soon as Mr. Dale liad delivered him
self of this, somewhat w arm speech, he took
bit hntund left the. court room. The court

The Chautauqua literary and scientific
circle held their regular meeting Mond iv
evening in the high school building. An
opening ode was sung by the glee club,
l'rof. f-teffco gave some highly interesting
chemical experiments. An excellent paper
upon Grecian architecture wa- read by J. 11.
fctonc. Miss B. Andrew's paper of original
fiction was of a high order. Miss Anna L.
Jackon recited "The Hild-headed Man" in
her usual excellant stvle.
Some nice work is -hovvn and a striking
effect created on the mammoth siirn- ju-t
finished in the interest of the famous "Dur
ham" tobacco companv on the southeast
comer of Market and Douglas street- and
the northeast building of Fourth and Doug
las avenues. These sign- cencr the entire
sides of the store upon w Inch they are
painted. It was a treat to sec how rapidly
they were cxe-cuted and finisheel by the two
artists who arc responsible for their creation.
K-pecially as .t wa- done during tho raw.
cold weather when tlie brush is liable to lose
much of its cunning.
The hired girl at the residence of K. G.
Smjth em "Waco street lud a regular picnic
div before jc-terd.iv. She was making
starch into which -he pl.t considerable coal
oil for some purpo-o ; then putting it on tho
stoetoboil. 1'retty soon it took fire and
the flames flashed clear up to the ceilinc,
threatening to fire tho hou.e. Fortunately
she had the pre-encc of mind to run for one
of the G-enadcs, which she fired at the stove.
and in an instant the fiamc- were Citin-
guisbed. The cTenadcs are recommending
themselves pretty fa-t.
