Opium Joint Raided. About mid
night Thursday the police raided a
room on the third floor of the Dittpe
blok on Third aud Brady streets and
found a couple who were living in the
den which was -equipped with all the
utensils of an opium joint. The man
and woman, who gave the names of
Mr. and Mrs. R. Benson, as man and
wife, were placed under arrest and
taken to the poliae station together
with the pipe and ophwn which the
oflicers found in the rtom. When the
police raided the place the man and
woman had just prepared supper, and
the room had the strong odor of smoke
at that time. The woman, it seems,
is in a terrible condition as the result
of her habit, and has been sick, but
nevertheless s-he had just been smok
ing when the pwlice reached the scene.
J tonus of $20 were posted by the pair
for appearance, but they failed to ap
pear and forfeited their bonds.

makes a total dividend of 59 per cent.
This is the bank financed by Arnold

dded if Danville flint brick were
used. Mr.' Lorenz bid $10,802 on plain

273 for the better material. It was
decided that this should be used, so
that the total contract price is 811,137
Mr. Lorenz will immediately let a sub
contract for the removal of the rub
bish of the old fire-destroyed build
ing. This work will start Monday and
he work of erection will immediately

is now one of the most pleasing and

been made so by the . united efforts
of the congregation so that all may

May Settle Frat Question. A peti

to dictate to the board or to ask it to
