It may interest some of our readers
to tell them. that a man was recently
arrested and finued twenty-five dollars
for listening to a telephone message
passing over the line, aud through his
own house, and telling others what be

that messages, or conversation, over
the wires, are confidential, and the
fact that he owned a phone ou the
line did not give him any right to
hear and repeat the conversation. If
yonubave a pbone, you will certainly
agree that it is a good law.

Another thing that these good
ladies are doing, is the placing of a
bed and complete outfit in the Sold

fit will cost over forty dollars. They
have already bought the iron bed and
paid for it, but they have not the
money to purchase the mattress, pil

them to take the money out of their
own pocket to do so. They want
about twenty-dollars, antd we believe

On account of the heavy rush of

left out of the paper, and among them
we failed to mention the surprise
party gotten up by our young friend
Trezvantt. He got up quite a crowd
of young ladies and gentlemen last
Wednesday evening and proceeded to
the pretty home of Mr. and Mrs. Jos.
L Fischer across Tensas, to surprise
the visiting young lady and others
from New Orleans. To say that they
failed to have an enjoyable and pleas
ant time is putting it mildly. The
pleasant hostest, Mrs Fisher. although
taken completely by surprise, soon had
nice refreshments prepared, and chani
pagne and other delicacies were par
taken of. The young ladies and geni

evelitg and iA halt a good time.

During last Saturday night some
person entered the bome of Mr. Chas.
Whittington, frightening his daughter
very much. The person entered the
room through a window, anid whett
she awoke he was standing near a
trunk. He blew out the light, when
she asked if it was her father. She
discoved that it was an intruder, and
ecreamed, when he ran to the window
and jumped out. Her father immedi
ately came into her room, but found
nothing missing. The young lady
says that she thought it was a white
man, and that as soon as she asked
who it was be blew out the light and
put up both hands over his face so as
prevent being recognized. It gave the
young lady a bad scare.
