that Park had not been concerned in the

less troublesome in the city than it was In
formur years. He has not bocn compelled
to call on citizons more than once for a set

plenty with all of them, business men es
pecially. The amount he is expected to
account for is $101,000, and so far the col
lections havo reached about $68,000. In
the country collections are not to easy,
probably because of the losses sustained in
the late floods.

TUESDAY MORNING, MAf
W. Higgles, of Olmsted, writes to the
Argus: "At elevon o'clock last night tho
fire fiend again viaitod this locality, This
time it completely destroyed the store of
U. M. Smith. The fire originated in a one
etory building used as a warehouse by Mr.
Smith, and situated about fifteen feet from
his store building. It was evidently the
work ot an incendiary, as thore had been
no fire in either building for some timo
previous. Loss on building and stock
about $7,000, Insurance $1,000, on build
ing, nothing on the stock."
A difficulty occurred yesterday even
ing between one Fox and a colored man, in
which the former cut at the latter but for
tunately only ripped his clothes. Fox had
been watchman at the oil factory, but was
'discharged Saturday and the colored man
was hired in his place. It seems that Fox
thought the nogro procured the change by
unfair means and last evening weut to see
him about it. A quarrel ensued and Fox
drew a pocket knife as stated and, making
a drive at the negro's side, cut a long runt
In his vest. There will probably be a trial
about the matter to-day,
Commercial avenue, from Thirtieth
to Thirty-fourth streets, has been macada
mized in a manner that renders it passable
at all times in all kinds of weather. Cap
tain WPP. Halliday has had some of his
teams employed for a number of days in
hauling offal from his saw mills and box
factory, and spreading it over the street. In
the worst places pieces of wood were first
laid down and saw duct afterwards to the
depth of about a foot. The pavement is
firm, durable and costs the city nothing.
Captain Halliday has extended tho improve

all the bad places and putting the street in
better repair than it has been for a long
A whito roan and a negro had a bad
fight yesterday forenoon, at the corner of
Sixth street and Ohio levee, in which the
latter was the victor, getting the other fel
low down and pounding thunder out of him
before others interfered and parted the
pugilists. The white man's name, was
Gus Burns; the negro accused him of hav
ing attempted to gain forcible entrance to
the shop of Mr. Smith Torrence and report
ed the facts to Chiof Myers. Sunday the
chief arrested Burns, but finding upon in
vestigation, that tho evidence against tho
fellow was not very strong, released him
with the injunction to leave town. But in
stead of leaving, or more probably prepara
tory to leaving, Burns hunted for the nogro
who had informed against him, with the in
tention of giving him a good thrashing. He
found the negro and was thrashed. Officer
Mahanny arrested the negro for fighting,
upon the complaint of Burns, and Chief
Myers, knowing Burns to be a penitentiary
convict and a bad man to havo about the
city, arrested him, had him fined under the
vagrant act by Magistrate comings ana
sent out of town under a stay of execution.

Springs of coldest water whose medical
qualities havo stood the test of
more than sixty years continual use, the
waters of each of a different kind, serve a
different purpose in bringing strength to
the teeble and health to the sick. These
Springs are in a mountain valley whose
sides are of perpendicular cliffy a hundred
feet high, jutting out hero and there In
fantastic ihapos resembling beasts and birds.
The woodland paths are a continual temp
