most unique ana
sortment of dogs of any city
this side of Kalamazoo or Lake-Minni-ha-ha.
There are digni
fied Bull Terriers, bob-tail curs,
and soon including the yelping
hound who furnishes music like
unto the sound of a roaring shell
on the seaside. Cairo, 111., has
long boasted of her fine display
of dogs, but if the unsuspecting
citizens of that earthly habita
tion would pay this city a visit
thay would surrender to the in
evitable, instanter. Some carry
ing tales of forlorn hope; others
displaying the good qualities of
wealthy masters, truly the canine
variety in this city can never be
outclassed. If you want to know
the real facts take a look at the
collection with your own optics
and verify this statement. We
could not afford to misrepresent
ear dog property.
"Jan," we are calling you!
come over and play us a tune;
we are nuncry tor the siren s
song muse, that soul-stirring
music that takes us to Drearny-
lind. It has not occurred to the
citizens of this city, perhaps.
that a local cub reporter an
nounced that Jan Kublik, the
world's greatest violinst, would
visit the Cape and render some
of his choicest selections, but it
is a fact. Now that Jan has
reached this country after much
persuasion from the music-lovers
of the big cities, we feel dis
couraged that he has not an
nounced his coming here by the
blowing of trumphets and sound
ing of brass. However, if the
musical public here will raise
something like $50,000 plunks,
we have no doubt that our friend
Jan will cross over the river and
rosen his bow for the benefit of
killing time. "Siegfried und der
The carnival company booked
for the city came in Monday but
as they have not called on the
Herald we can not say whether
they are playing out in the coun
try or just came in to see the
town. Carnivals are common
affairs nowadays and no par
ticular attention is paid to them
by the public and we area part
of the public.
Quite a joke was played on
the Frisw uflieials on the trans
fer boat B. F. Yoakum, an ex
tended account of which appear
ed in last week's Herald. Those
in charge of the boat had pre
pared to fire a salute at each
stopping point, but some mis-
die vious boy placed blank shells
in the gun and prevented the

Hallows of All
Saint's Day, was cause for much
jollification in the city Tuesday
evening and night. The usual
pranks were played by the
"boys" who make up parties on
such occasions, and entertain
ments were held premiscously
about the city in honor of the
event. If Webster's version of
Hallowe'en is correct we fail to
recognize what the object is in
"painting the town red."
Driving a goat team across the
continent, from San Diego, Cal.,
to New York is, according: to
J. R. Johnson, one one of the
most varied and exciting ex
experiences imaginable. Prof.
Mr. Bcaslcy, proprietor of the
Hays Hotel, was the victim of
an unfortunate accident Wed
nesday morning about 5 o'clock.
He bought some powder in the
summer to be used in treating
dogs, part of it being leftover
and placed on a shelf, and the
evening before the accident Mrs.
Bcaslcy, while cleaning out the
shelves, took some accumulated
papers into the hotel office to be
burned, not knowing that they
contained a deadly destroyer.
In starting a fire Mr. Beasley
crowded the papers in the stove,
causing an explosion that may
rob him of his eyes, which were
filled with grit from the stove.
He was also severely burned on
an arm, above the rist. He was
alone in the office, but his wife
heard the report of the explosion
from upstairs and hastened to
summon Dr. St. Avit, who says
he may save one of the patient's

While playing with a dynamite
cap Monday afternoon it ex
ploded and badly shattered sev
eral fingers on the left hand of
Ben Garrett, 12-year-old son of
Oscar Garrett. He, in company
with several other boys of about
his own age. were at Garrett's
livery stable, and Ben lighted a
match and stuck it to the cap
while holding it in his hand, and
the explosion followed. His hand
was attended by a physician,
and it is thought that the fingers
will be saved. It is a narrow
escape at best, as these caps are
very dangerous and the only
wonder is that the hand was not
blown entirely off. Where these
boys are getting those caps is a
mystery. Canithersville Demo
