were rendered by the band In a brilliant
style. Unfortunately the position taken by
tho band was in a hollow and this together
with a stifl wind blowing uud clouds of dust
speeding in all directions made the concert
somewhat a disappointment to many. They

enough to get near the baud and had fa
vorable locations were aflbrded a raro treat.
Many carriages dotted tho hillside. Some

man Betteridgo's oxpeuso. At a previous
meeting Councilman Gablo took a scat out-
stdo tho Tailing in tho Council chamber and
when he arose to speak on a motlou Council
man Finney raised tho point of order that
Mr. Gablo was not In u position to discuss tho
question, as ho was not within the Council
chamber, Tho chairman declared that tho
point was not well taken aud that Mr. Gablo
was properly seated. Last Thursday cvontng
Councilman Schcifly took a seat outsldo the
ratling and when ho arose to Bpcak on a
motion a point was made that Mr. Scheifly
was not properly seated In the Council
chamber and could not enter tho discussion.
Chairman Bettcridgo declared tho point well
taken. A roar of laughter followed and
notwithstanding his attention was called to
the ruling at tho last meeting, tho chairman
stood by the decision,
Councilman Schelily notified tho wateV
committee, verbally, on Thursday night that

During the past few days this town has
been flooded by circulars printed in the
Lithuanian language and many people have
been greatly aroused by tho statements of
certain parties who claim to have had them
translated to the effect that the circulars
declare the Lithuanians have a majority in
this town and propose capturing the majority
or all of tho borough offices next spring.
Tho fact is the circulars have nothing to do
with local politics but aro intended to arouse
protests against the recent treaty between
the United States and Russia.
Councilman Lamb made a hit at the
Councilmanic luncheon in Scheider's tho
other evening. Councilman Scheifly was so
seated at one of the tables that his back was
turned toward a large looking glass and those
who occupied seats at an opposite table, by
looking up at the glass, had a splendid view
of the large bald spot on tho back of Scheifly's
head. When tho luncheon was fairly under
way Councilman Lamb chanced to look up at
the gloss and saw the vacant spot, "Say,
boys," he exolaimed, "it Is time for all of us
to go. The sun Is rising." Ode.
