night. Thirty-two "noa-partlaaa"
citizens of Ashland responded to the
call and fourteen, by actual count,

lips of Bert Grler, who was evident
ly suffering from an acute attack of
borborygmus, to the effect that the
sinful and outrageous course of Med
ford had been "discovered." The
Medford piratical gang having looted
tho vault at Jacksonville, even now
proposed, like Sampson of old to
carry away tho gates ot the city. In
other words, If tho honest and tear
less citizens ot Ashland failed to
throw themselves Into tho broach,
and at once, Medford proposed to
make away with tho vault, sell It for
old junk and pocket the proceeds.
