Riace on Saturday. The young g g
LIenen of town, ranging between the
ages of five and twelve years, inspired
by the last tournament, determined
to vio with their elders in gallant

knight was borne along by his two
fleet coursors, No saddles or bridles
were-required, and spurs were unne

knights participated and - the affair
was quite entertaining. Occasional
ly a falo step would procipinto both
stced and rider headlong in the dust,
but in no ease were they separated.
Like the tabled centaura of old1, horse
and rider were one and indivisible.

M UJSDEROUs CnI.D.-On WVednesilay
afternoon a colored child aged si-x

wore aroused by hearing a pistol shot,
and on examination found the small

larger one some distance off. No
grown persons were near. The older
beoy would confess dt-itig, but that
he had heard a pistol shoot way off,
and had seen his brother fall down.
By threats however he was induced to
confess that he was playing with the
pistol and his brothe'r tried to pull It
away whmen it wvent off. He confessed
having hid the pistol and produced it

powder were found in the wound, thus
contradieting the boy's statement
about the tnaslo.

A PRAOTICAL JOKE.-Onl Monday
evening several of the boys in town
descended into tho:okoavation that in
being made for the cistern, for obsera
vation. This hole in the ground is
eighteen feet in diameter and twelve
feet deep. While the unsuspecting
juveniles wore closely engaged in con.
versation, two gentlemon, the Oounty
Auditor and Trial Justice, deter.
mined to play a practical Joke on the
aforesaid jvetniles, and removed the
ladder. The prisoners expostulated
and uttered a few mild impt'tbations,
but it was of no Use. The ladder was
not fortheoming. After about a half
hour's time a small boy lowered the
ladder and released the incarcerated.
These with a yell, half in fun half in
earnest, made a determined chhrge ob
the practical jokers, and in a twinkling
turned the tables. The jokers wore
now the joked, and the; retreated
precipitate!.y into on ofile to save
thomse.ves. The juveniled Ittid siege
to the front and back doors, and did
either opei .ever so little, a volley of
clods wau sent. This thing was kept up
for over an hour with intervals Uf

agreed upon, terms of capitulatioti
being "candy for the crowd," and
peace again reigned in Warsaw.
GREAT EASTERN MENAGERIE.
This comprehensive and elaborate es
tablishmen-pronounced one of the
greatest combinations of caravan, mu
seum, hippodromen, aquarium and
circus on the road-with all its colos
sal and wondrous proportions, will
visit ovr town on Firlday, the 24th
day of October, 1878.
Of the excellenoo and perfect con
pleteness of this grand organisation,
the press- have been most lavish in
their praise wherever it has been
this season. The menagerie depart
ment is probaLly the most choice
feature of this elegant show, ekeept.
ing only the circus. So great is the
displuy afforded for an appreciative
pub'lic .iustruetion that no less than
twelve massive centre poles are re
quired to exhibit it properly. The
new and original idea of a double
circus performane is not only felioi
tous and haIppy, but strikes the be
holder as a decided innovation upon
the old order of things. A double
ring with a dual company performitig
two acts in as many rings at one timel
is a cercainly new era in the sawdust
business. We look for a big turnout
of our good people.
