In fact, the band has but few
superiors and not many equals
in this section of the country.
The members seem determined
to excel, having gone to a large
expense iu buying the most ap

new and elegant band wagon
built. The band practices
every night three or four hours.
It is under the leadership ol

who exhibits rare talents as a
musical prodigy, and with con

There is no doubt in the
minds ol any person living iu
the vicinity but the burning ot
the Birnes' Mills bridge was
the wor of an .incendiary.
The Commissioners, with a
false economy, have refused or
neglected to offer a reward for
the apprehension of the mis
creant, This virtually says to
incendiaries that they , may
burn and destroy the county's
property without fear of pun-isnment.
