Milax, Jan. 23. The town eonncil
of Milan met in special session Mon
day evening at 8 p. m.. President
Caldwell presiding. Trustees Gan
non, Thatcher. Brown and Haslip
were present. After a short talk to
the council by Attorney We!d. a res
olution was passed in regard to con
tracting on the waterworks. En
gineer Darling was psesent, as well
as quite a number of representatives
of hydrant companies. On motion of
the trustees, the bids on hand were
opened and were as follows: Krellin
A Lovell, of Des Moines, enclosed th
necessary check of deposit and
offered to construct the svstem for
the sum of $10,779; the Challenge
Windmill and Pump Co., of Batavia.
111., enclosed check of deposit, and
were willing to take special assess
ment bonds in payment, and offered
to complete the system for the sum
of $9,721; the last bid, that of Cast
agren & McDonald, of Chicago, was
for $9,256. As this was the lowest
bid, the council maved to accept the
oner on tne condition that the cai
which is now in court would be de
cided in favor of Laving waterworks.
Any new improvement that the town
needs we should have by all means,
as improvements make a town what
it ought to be. The foolish opposi
tion must be stopped pretty soon or
the town will be ruined by allowing
no new undertaking to begin. Had
it not been for a few of the people re
siding in Milan, the town would have
had the Deere Plow Company in Mi
lan, as Mr. Deere originally came
here and offered to locate here if
reasonable prices could be secured
for the water power needful to a con
cern of this kind. We have as strong
a water power in Koclc river as there
is in any river of its size. But what
good is it if it is to be kept as an
heirloom for the family, merely as a
remembrance of what might have
been done if they had sold and al
lowed factories to locate and boom
Ths Epworttt Leagee.
Friday evening the fourth series of
entertainments given by the Epworth
league of the M. E. church, was
held at the church. The house
was well filled, more people
being present than at any of the
other entertainments, mostly be
cause the greater part of the pro
gram was rendered by home talent.
The program was as follows:

The song rendered by Mrs. Steg

Stegniaeir's first appearance in pub
lic in this town and she deserves
praise for heraefferts. Lasca, by Mrs.
H. J. Huyett, was well given
and the people of Milan are
proud of having such a fine elocu
tionist in their midst as Mrs. H. J.
Huyett. We do not know of anyone
who could have tilled the place any
better. Every part that Mrs. H. J.
Huyett rendered was a masterpiece
in itself. Miss Lu Sodestrom, of
Milan, also shows a fine talent for
singing, and she carried out her part
well. Miss Jessie Bogue, of Rock
Island, also did very well, and to
sum everything up in one, the enter
tainment was the linest ever given in

bells can be heard everywhere.

Bailey came near losing his nose. It
seems the boys were skating, and af
ter a battle of words and a chase
after each other on skates. Brower
not wishing to get into trouble with
Bailey, took off his skates and
started away. Bailey followed and
a lit ensued in which Brower was
badly beaten by his assailant. Dur
ing the melee Brower bit Bailey's
nose so badly that it had to be
dressed by a surgeon.

Pobt Btbos. Jan. 23 The Abocs
of Jan. 22 gives an account of a row
at a dance near here on Satnrdav
night last. Now Port Byron is not
anxious for any more than what she
actually deserves of that kind of no
tonetv. lhe dance spoken of was
held in the town of Zuma, not far
from Joslin. The young man who
received the knife worn is James
Vogel. of Hampton went to the
dance accompanied by several other
young men. The dance was held at
the Rathburn farm, the house being
occupied by George Oliver and fami
ly and Fred Brockman. Brock man
had a man at work for him named
John Berkland. While in the house,
Vogel and Berkland had some dis
pute about an overcoat, and went
outside the house to settle the mat
ter, and in the melee Berkland cut
Vogel several times with a pocket
knife. Vogel is still at the house
where the fracas took place, not be.
ins: well enough to be taken home.
It is rumored that Berkland has dis
appeared, and also rumored that he
is still in the neighborhood, being
badly disabled by clubs in the hands
of Vogel's friends at the time he did
the cutting. The fact is, it was a
drunken row, and such occurrences
are far too numerous. It seems as if
a great many young men of the pres
ent day seem to have no iJeaof a good
time except to get full of liquor. A
farmer who lives in the vicinity of
the trouble remarked that it was a
good thing it was cold enough for
overcoats, as the boys would not
have pockets enough to carry their
bottles in without them.

delighted. One of them recehtlv
said: "For several years past I have
maae from two to lour trips each
month between Chicago and New
York, and am almost always accom
panied by from one to three or four
others. 1 believe (as 1 anrvinformed
by your conductors) that 1 have made
more trips between Chicago and New
York than any other one man during
the past few 'years. I have always
traveled over your road in prefer
ence to any other, becau.se, by care
ful comparison with others, I have
found not only that the road itself is
far superior, but the table and the
service are in every respect the best
oi any roaa l nave ever traveled on.
The conductors, stewards, waiters
and porters I have found to be uni

who are obliged to travel as much as
I am." Trains leave Chicago as fol
