There has for some time existed a de
mand for a city detective whose aile duly
it should be to hunt up mysterious cases of
burglary, robbeiy, etc., to which tbe regu
lar officers ot the c'ty cannot give that
constant attention necessary. It should be
a fhrewd, experienced man, paid by the
city to follow up and work np cases which
do not come within the legitimate bounds
of a pence officer's duties and which such
officer has not the time to follow up. F.very
city of ten or twelve thousand peoplo ought
to have a detective or two.
A decision rendered recently in a cane
at Tsylorville, I Is., will be of soma inter
est to those of our citizens who are subject
to asses-ment for public improvement. Tho
citycmncil of Taylorville macadamized
one of the principle streets, along the busi
ness portion of the city, and made an as
sP8ment upon tbe property immediately
a'ljcent to the improved street, to the ex
tent of half the expense of the work done.
Most of the property owners paid ther as
sessment, while others refused to pay, and
were sued by the city end beatcu in the
county court. Many prominent citizens
were summoned as witn"sses touching the
point as to whether or not tho improvement
of the street had been actual benefit to the
property assessed and to the city.

Mr. George Parson's residence was
crowded Thursday night with an elegant
gathering of poople from all parts of tho
city, in attendance upon the aprnn sociable
given thero by the ladies of the Methodist
church. Judging from the amount taken
in at tho door about one handred aud fifteen
people were pruscut. The timo was spent
most pleasantly by all, in the various excel

ble experience in matters ot tho kind, had
devised and provided. When the company

the evening was opened with a lively littlo

of which all present partook. Supper con
cluded, the principal event of tte eveulng
wai ushered in : tho sale of tbe many beau
tiful, neat and unique aprons worn by the
ladies. This afforded unbounded fun for
all. Excitement ran high at times, as tbe
aprons of the several favorites present were
off-red to tbo highest bidder, and bids
were heavy. One of tbe most beautiful
aprons there was that worn by Mrs. N. B.
Thistliiwood, composed of satin material,
artistically made and profusely decorsted
with flowers of bright hues, hand-paiuted
by Mrs, Thisilewood herself. It was sold
for over four dollars tho tfmt time. Proba

Ollicer Martin yesteiday afternoon about
4 o'clock and put into tho calaboose. Stone
was the ouly prisoner in that department

filled with thick smoko in a few minutes
and Mrs. Caine, at once suspecting the

of water that woro handy, succeedod by
hard work in putting out the fire, but not
