'Cash paid for hog's bristles" is an
advertisement. An "Ironmongery"
advertises "spring rat traps," "Com

appear very odd these days.

E. L. Kingsbury Sells his
Business to Comstock and
Dismissed the Suit.
The suit of tho village ot Haskins
against Sarah M. Gustin et nl, in
which it was sought to appropriate
property of the defendants for street
purpose, and the court was asked to
appoint a jury to fix the damage and
compensation the defendants wero
entitled to becauso of tho extension
of a certain street in tho village, was
dismissed by Judge Lincoln.
Tho records of tho villago clerk
showed that the proceedings of tho
council in adopting tho ordinance to
appropriate property for the exten
sion of the street were irregular, in
that the ordinanco was passed at ono
session of council and without tho
formal suspension of tho rules, which
requires that ordinances shall be read
at three separate meetings.
Tho suit was dismissed without
prejudice to another being filed,
which will probably be done after tho
Haskins council adopts their ordi
nance in the regular manner.
