through the Arst verre the crowd becamo
suddenly augmented by a largo
bo-ly of students, principally sopho

flcl verse had scarcely hi en reached w hen
a student threw an ancle.rrt egg, which
siruck the singer between tho eye, and this
artist answered thia by a yell, and aked;
"Who froivd de eg?" This provoked
shouts of laughter, iu which the town peo

than another egg came, flying from the hand
of a student. This one, however, mis-ed
its murk, and the egg destroyed

I'lie "snub" made a rush tor
the stiiu'iilH, and iudiguantly demanded to

no satisfaction he si ruck a freshman named

It is perhaps as well that Commissioner
Cleveland did not carry out his pledge of
voting f ir Campbell yesterday and that he
did not vacate his seat. Had h'( resiirncj
the most extraordinary efforts
would have been made by the ring
to secure the appointment of so carefully
selected a tool that ho could not
but be above public suspicion, whilo he
would be so l.ir safe that on the llrst oc
casion possible he would side with the
present majority. This Is no tuno for pur
ifying the Hoard by patchwork. The
tough three have jnt to go. and must go
together, or the chances of reformation are
minimized. One at least of three new
menber- may be expected to work with tho
mayor and Gen. doodling, when there
would be a certainty of decency prevailing

Mr. Houghton Is rich, or rather his wlfo

coveied sorrol, There wus no horse In
the city that could compare with bis iu

here, and he was unxiotis to try Borax'
mettle In a race, so when the National
Trolling Association beuun to advertise
their full trotting meetings, Mr. Hough
ton pi t tended to hand his horses over to
a lecciitlr graduated deutlst named
S. F, Brothers, who has opened

standing was that Brothers was to en

under an assumed iiaine. The first
essay of this kind was ut Hit Danbury

was told he could not trot unless he paid
$S0 due for the Danbury floe and soother
$o0 for changing the horse's name to Borax.
It was In vain Mr. Brothers protested that
Borax was the real name of the horse.
Tbs Judges were Inexorable. Brother was
called one side by Key. Mr. Houghton and
paid the $100. Brothers passed
the money over to the judges and Borax
won the ran in three utraiifht heats In
