The Firemen's Parade.
The Fourth of July was handsome
ly and pleasantly celebrated in Eaton
by. onr excellent and efficient Fire
Company. . At 10 o'clock the Compa
ny appeared on our streets, with their
Engine beautifully decorated with
flags and evergreen, and drawn by
four spirited horses. The procession
was headed by our famous Brass Band
and tho city Council ; then followed
the Steam Engine and the members
dressed in full-uniform ; the old "Red
Rover" Engine was trimmed off and
in charge of Young America, aud the
workmen in the cigar establishments
of Messrs. Quiuu & Klinger and Ay
era & Filbert, in two handsomely dec
orated wagons, brought up the rear.
After parading through our streets,
the capacity of the Engines to throw
water was tested, near the Depot.
Our Steamer can't be beat that is a
fact, and sufficient comment and the
old "Red Rover" done bully under
tho control of the boys. "When this
exercise was closed, tho Company re
paired to the-dining room of the
Eagle Hotel, arid partook of an excel
lent and sumptuous dinner, served up
for the -occasion by the host, Mr. "W.
C. nuston' and lady, assisted by Mr.
Geo: Kelly aiid W. A. Cleveland.
Rev: Z. T. Sullivan preceded the din

by the Company at the Fair Grounds,

On Thursday, July , 1st, Coroner
Bruce and a jury held an inquest on the
body of Frank Butt", a young man of
near twenty years, who was engaged as
a hand on the farm of J. T. Morning
star, in Lanier township. On the day
mentioned, after an early breakfast, Mr.
Morningstar with his wife and two
children came to Eaton, leaving this
young man at work fn the corn they
returned to their home at about 12 o'
clock. M., and after preparing dinner

again, some 'half hour later, and in at

covered a wound in his head, with
brains slowly exuding. Procuring the
assistance of MK John Glsnder, the two
proceeded to wash the . young man's
bead of blc d, &c, and sent immediate

revolver was found on the bed at the
rieht side of the body, with all the
chambers discharged. The ball enter
ed the- tight temple, its course being
downward, backward and to the left,
and the wound was necessarily a mor

hours after he was discovered, but show

All About Dogs.
"Wo don't know how soon after the
first pair entered Eden, dogs put in
an appearance, bnt as far back as we
have any recollection of the human
family, we remember dogs. The clas
sic expression, "dog-on-it," indicates
that they are of a very ancient origin.
There is another theory which would
seem to indicate that dogs had an
early history. . It is a well establish
ed fact that a very poor man is always
the owner of several dogs. Now, as
every age has been more or less af
flicted with tho poverty of some who
have lived in it, how could the pic
ture bo completo without dogs?
Again, whose grandfather ever seen
tho picture of a blind man who was
not led by a dog ? Is there any rude
boy who ever tried to steal apples,
except the one', whom the old man
stoned and the dog did not get after
him? Ws there ever a drowning
child saved that a dog did not pull
out? Thore are many kind of dogs.
Goldsmith in his Elegy on Madam
Blaize speaks of
Mongrel, puppy, whelp and hound
And curs of low degree."
That Sergeant Bates of a follow,
who tried to carry a flag with "Excel
sior" written ou it up the Alpine
mountains, and who wouldn't stop
for the old maid when sho said
"Oh stay and rest
Thy weary head upon this breast,"
but who went on whooping and yell
ing npon tho mountain, got lost iii the
snow, as he deserved, and the poet
"A traveller bv the faithful hound
Half burried in the snow was found."
Burns wrote a fine poem upon the
two dogs. Old Dives would not do
anything for Lazarus, but the dogs
did. An English poet, -at one time
quite celebrated in describing a pau
pert burial says
"He was not friendless.
Yes, there, was one, only one, faithful
To that forgotten wanderer, bis dog.
Rip Van Winkle had a faithful dog.
His name was "Snyder," and ho slept
with him for twenty years without
moving. But the various dogs may
be grouped for convenience into two
general classes, and if writers upon
natural history would do this it might
save confusion. The great well rec
osiiized classes are town dogs and
country dogs. There is as much dif
ference between a town dog and a
country dog, as oue can well imag
ine.?- A town .dog knows all tho al
leys knows every meat shop that he
can slyly slip a good steak out of
knows what slop bucket to run his
nose into, and -he walks around the
streets with his narrative erect. The
country dog has a scared look as he
comes into town, and well he may
have, for if half a dozen loafer dogs
ordinarily sitting on the street cor
ners do not make ferociously at him
some humane biped will betray his
confidence and have an old oyster
can tied to his tail in less than five
minutesrand he will tako it home and
crawl under the barn with it in less
time than. Goldsmith Maid could clear
the same space. If you throw a boot
jack at a country dog, you can always
hit him plunk in the ribs, and with a
doleful yelp ho bids you farewell and
waves you an awkward adieu as ho
tumbles over your fence to strike out
for "homo, sweet home."
- The past week has been one of great
mortality among our' town dogs.
Several distinguished ones have had
the "bark" taken out of them. Ed.
Lockwood's "Boso" was a well known
dog. Ed. took him of a minister to
raise, but it is thought the dog lost
his "true inwardness" after he made
the change. ' He died of "pizen" sud
denly and without prayer. Luenber-
ger had a- fine dog, but become a lit
tle wild ' living in town. So Luen
bcrger one night tied him to a stake
near a fence, which so mortified the
dog that he jumped tbe.feuce and this
lifo beforo morning, and was found
hanging on the other side. Hb was
"sooner dog," and the owner lifted
up his voice and wept bitterly. ', The
Coroner pronounced it a clear case of
suicide and doa-matically adheres to
the opinion. Beatty had a fine dog.
ne was a hunter and setter ho would
bunt a 1)3110' with a perseverance
which: commanded the admiration
all his friends, and when he had found
one would 6dt and gnaw it from early
"Night dropped her sable curtain down
And pinned it with a star."
Perhaps you have noticed one sweet
voice in the chorus when the dogi
gave a midnight serenade ; that be
longed to Beatty's "setter" we shall
ne'er hear it again. "Death loves
shining mark," and that dog had
go. t Five or sir other dogs died last
week, but they were only -common
dogs, hardly worth a passing notice
they were regular sons of their
mothers. 7 One young thoughtless
purp wag shot with deadly shot for
setting a -bad example on a public
street. A year or two ago an official
notice was published that "all owners
of dogs should bo muzzled" during
dog days it ought .to, be enforced
now we don't own a dog we can
not be muzzled, neither can tho free
dom of the press but dogs have
right to the freedom which our fath
ers fought, bled and died for it

mortal Webster "ours to eujoy, ours
