It has boeu bugfjestcil that, since tho
city tuts not yet decided ?s to what dispo
sitiou it Hliall muko ot the Railroad Btrip,
it Hhould build a new jail and city hall upon
it, fronting some street. Tito lower portion
of tho building mit;ht be used for tho con-
tlnonicut of criminals with tho neceary
yard in tho rear for working them, and
thn upper stories might servo as a city hall
and as offices for tho various city oflicea.
It may bo that this suggestion, it carried
out in connection with alderman Bluke's
resolution, would meet the approbation of
our citizens generally.
Tho following programme was carried
out m the high school room yesterday after
noon by the scholars, and furnished excel
lent entertainment for the audience. Tho
exercises were opened with songs by the
entire school, and then continued as follows :

which were attentively listened to, and
which closed the entertainment for ' the
The Young People's Temperance As
sociation held their regular meeting at
Temperance ball last night. Tho audience
was select and quite large, and the club
was fully prepared to entertain them well.
The platform was enclosed by a heavy cur
tain, composed of maroon colored cotton
flannel and trimmed in scarlet, which had
the appearance of heavy velvet. Alter the
regular business was disposed ot, tho litera
ry exercises were opened with a sketch of
the Ufa of Lougfelbw by Miss Lizzie Wood,
which was well read. Following this was
an ode "Let the lower lights be burning."
A selection "Tho old man's dream" was
read by Miss Nellie McGahey, which was
finely rendered, A song, entitled "The
drinking song," by Miss Lydia Pitcher,
Miss Fannie Pitcher, at the organ, came
next and then followed the charade, which
was in three acts and represented two
sylables (tho word being "plaintive").
The actors were Messrs. Elmer Comings,
Eugene Ellis, Will Williamson and Misses
Maud Rittenhousc, Musa Green and
Frankie Rcxford. The club will give a
holiday entertainment soon, the committee
to make tho arrangements for the entertain
ment has already been appointed, and is
composed ot the executive committco of the
association and of Misses Fannie Barclay,
Eva Sheppard, Emm Lcland and Mr.
Geo. Fisher. Hereatter tho club will hold
meetings every alternate Thursday evening.
THE CORONER'S INQUEST.
A coroner's inquest over the remains
of Moses Justus, was yesterday forenoon
held in the Arab engine house. Tho
testimony disproved the statements
of soino of Glenn's friends that
he (Glenn) had been knocked down and
beaten before using his knife, and showed
that the murder was commit
ted entirely without causo. Dr. Petrie.
who examined tho woumlu testified that
death had resulted irom a wound iflicted
in tho back which being probed was
tound to extend to tho heart. The prisoner
was committed without bail, v
Tho following is the vordictof the jury:
"Wo, tho undersigned jurors, sworn to en
quiro of tho death of Moses Justus,
from evidence on oath, do find
that ho catno to his doath from
wounds iuflictod with a knife in tho hands
of Anderson Glenn. That wo deem the
killing to bo murder.

To tho Young Ladles of Ai.ua:
Giuls I have just perusod your matri
monial effusion in this morning's Bulletin.
As I was enumerated in tho list of beue
dicta in search of tho myth of "connubial
felicity," I propose to givo you my viows
ns adduced from your article, You have
kindly drawn for mo a pen picture of your
self physiologically, un atomic ally and mor
phologically; and have stated also your
ideas of what you wish in return. "Your
faces aro beaming, your visages bright"
so far so good. We think we have seen
one of these in a bric-a-brac collection.
It was quite unique. Intellectual and your
cranial contents "all right," "of course."
We will not discuss that question, for "By
thoir fruits ye shall know them." Wo also
have quite a variety of visuul organs to
select from, and as we are "color blind,"
that is ot no consequence. Girls, we are
sorry that Anua is suffering from an epi
demic of Grecian noses. Your olfactory
Climents must bo very acute. Emigrate
hero aud you will not be troubled with
'telephone cigars." Ar.d you are not
"built for squeezing." Wo must say that
morphologically you have been sadly neg
lected. But still there is hope. Perhaps
Madame Foy could aid you. Wo can not
discuss this question very effectually on
paper; would "embrace tho opportunity"
to interchange views. We aro not an ad
mirer of the American construction of the
external and internal maleolar processes.
The French suits our taste. We arc glad
to learn that you construct your own
habiliments and are versed in the "culinary
arts." We would suggest that you also be
como an adept in the procedure of irritat
ing linen on corrugated surface
in common parlance known as "wash
ing." Ye state you can wield the "flat-iron."
These two accomplishments might bo of
great service to you should you be uufor
tuuate enough to procure ono ot our nuuv
uers. l no luca ot weiluing women s
weapon strikes us very forcibly. From
your statement you aro well supplied with
So nice to bo able to sihg, "There's no
placo like home," while "drawing" wa
ter or sawing wood, and other light house
hold duties. In regard to your eyes, that
is a sacred question with us, as it is beyond
the scope of human mind to form any
hypothesis ia regard to it from apparently
conclusive data nearer than "between
sweet seventeen and four score." So you
have a fondness for intelligent men? Most
people generally admire rare objects. "You
are enough for us all ;" well, perhaps, more
We ore afraid you will not have the op
portuuity of bending your will, unless you
setid out another Poler expedition. Then,
perhaps, the object of your desires will bo
tounu among tuc numerous curiosities
found. We are glad to learn that "the old
folks" are nice. Many thanks, girls, but
we have no desire to enter into a matri
monial alliance with the whole family
Wit won't procure beefsteak moro than
once or twice, unless the butchcrshops are
numerous and the proprietors have a large
stock of faith in humau nature.
"Now, in return for your good qualities,"
"you wish not for wealth." Now, that ob
viates tho principal difficulty. It you are
content to subsist on the "tender passion,"
and that as a source of nutrition, we t'jink
there is some hope for you. That is a
good summer diet, easily accumulated, and
a non-provoker of dispepsia.
But as for ourself, we would be afraid to
go beyond the limit set by Dr. Tanner. In
regard to strong, honest men, with tho
other divine qualities, you wish, wo are
afraid, wo cannot fill your order as tho de
mand is far greater than the supply. They
are quoted very high, and this country is
several years behind in her orders. Now
in regard to tho symotrical pedal extremi
ties nearly ever variety is found among us
But the parenthetical (), and Hogarth's
lines of beauty seem to predominate. There
also seems to bo a sad lack ot adipose
tissue. You are right on tho hair question,
color is no1, sought for. Length and tenac
ity aro the main qualities that Bhould in
terest you. As you havo no choice in
olfactory organs wo will not comment.
And you wish an organism endowed with a
"large mouth," a cavern as it were. So as
to be able to "swallow you whole." Now,
girls, wo think that is carrying ausculatorv
gymnosticstoo far. And we don't think
tho nervous membrane of our digestive
organ would stand the proceedure. If this
gastronomic phenomena could be rccip-
procated it would be "too awfully splon
did" to swallow each other. How testheti-
cal, how romantic 1 The idea of you
wending your way down our Oesophogus,
nearly tickles us to doath. Too nico to be
wrapped up in each other as it were. What
a nice pastime to swallow you, and just
think what a nice time you would have
combatting tho solvent action of tho gastric
So crlrls after mature deliberation, wo
think that wo would not suit each other ac
cording to your present viows. Wo nro sorry

not more of said notes shall be redeemed in
