The tin box CDnfidenee game racket
has been worked again. This time
in Livingston county, and a paper
from that vicinity tells of the exper
ience in this manner:
Some men achieve honor and oth
ers have honor thrust upon them.
Same way with other people some
were born to swindle, and others
were born to have swindles thrust
upon them. As usual it is the farm
er again. Kli Diek. a wealthy farmer
living south of the county line, had
the pleasure a few days ago of enter
taining two inoffensive, meek look
ing strangers, who asked for the
privilege of resting under his tig
trees and also begged a drink of wa
ter. Mr. Diek, fearing they might
oe angels: could not refuse them.
and in a short snaee of time 1... Ln..w
they were ethei-ar' and lie was --at
their service." They had come to
buy hi-, farm object was no monev
with them, and thev offered him a
fabulous price for it. Thev made a
deposit of $.i,(H)ii, ami Mr. Dick a de
posit of $.-.7i0 to bind the bargain
until thev could return with the bal
ance u! the sum agreed upon. The
money was placed in a tin box a
little innocent tin box that couldn't
hurt anyone, and Mr. Diek was told
to keep it and guard it with his life
until they came back. After their
departure Mr. Diek had an itching to
open the box he couldn't resist the
temptation, he did open it, and
horrors! there was nothing in it.

Dan Kane was arrested yesterday
afternoon by Officer Crompton on a

complaint made by Constable" Mar

and his tca:n has been levied upon to
satisfy the bill. Yesterday morning
Constable Martin me' Dan and read
the papers to him standing on the

meantime when he had linished he
went to take the lines away from the

An audience which made up in ap
preciation what it lacked in numbers
greeted Fiohman's company in its
tirst presentation of Clyde Fitch's
adaptation from the French of Alex
ander r.issoti and Albert Carre's com
edy. " I'he Masked Ball," at Harper's
theatre last vvening. It is an un
pleasant thought that the endeavors
of the theatre management to pre
sent the best class of attractions on
the road should be rewarded by such
small recognition on the part of our
theatre-going public. "The Masked
Ball" is in eery way deserving of
the reputation it has attained. It is
bright, entertaining, abounding in
the elements of refined comedy, but
its situations are not overdrawn. It
is splendidly east throughout, leav
ing no room for discrimination as to
merit in the leading roles, Charles
