Piuldy Carey and wife from the
vicinity of that classic burg called
Hogtown, wero on a visit to the Cen
tre this week, and in their endeavors
to draw themselves outside, too larga a
slice of barley juice, Paddle's legs be
came so entangled that the narrowness
of our roads h id a very serious elftct
on his locomotion. Mrs Carey was
somewhat differently effected, her
tongue iissumcd the alasticity of a
streak of forked lightning and the pro
fanity indulged in would do credit to
any Billingsgate lhh wife. None of
our professionals could hold a candle
to her.
The School exhibition got up by
Prof Brown and MUs Mary Brown,
came olT, as announced, last Friday
evening. The school house was packed
and many could not get in. The pro
gram as originally gotten up had to be.
varied on account of failure on the
part of some in attending to practice.
But, notwithstanding, the exhibition
was a decided success. To maka par
ticular mention of any of the acts or
actors, would be iiiidduous, sutllce it
to say that all acted their part well,
and was well appreciated by the
audience, as evidenced by the hearty
applause which greotjl them at the
end of each performance.

A sad case.
A very sad accident occurred here
last Sunday evening whereby Mrs
Menerey, mi old lady of "3 years got
both les and one arm broken, Samuel
Carson and wife and Mr Menerey
were returning from a meeting in
Ciroen ood and when on the R, R.
crostdag just east, of the village the
h'orses became frightened at a locomo
tive standing over tlio cattle guards on
the road side, and jumped to one side
upsetting the whole party in the ditch.
Mr. Carson having the lines fastened
around his wrists was dragged quite a
distance and considerably bruised and
battered. Mrs Carson also received
very serious injury, but no bones
b' oken. They were taken to the bouse
of James Brown and Dr Mitchell assist
ed by Dr Ney, set tho broken limbs
and made them all as comfortable as
possible under tho circumst inces. The
question has been asked lrr.quently
since, have tho R. It. authorities any
right to keep their engines in such
positions for any length of time, ob
structing the highway and endanger
ing the lives of tho public?

A well known physician of Capae
called down nameless anathemas on
his defenceless head, one day last
week, by innocently (?) decorating
his wife's hat with a couple of feath
ers plucked by the wayside com
monly called burdock leaves just
previous to her calling on some
friend at the farther end of the vil
lage. Now he is in mortal terror,
or, that is, he would be, if we were
his wife.

would better appreciate his popular

mash I made in Detroit.
