Saturday evening, five young ladies were taken suddenly ill with what for convenience, was termed "nervous prostration.'!,. The peculiar circumstances of their being ill at the aame boarding house, and afflicted at the aame time, would point rather to poisoning of some kind. It is, in fact, believed to have re sulted from the uso of defective canned goods at dinner. All are well now, though considerable excitement was caused. A conflict occured last Saturday on the Warren faim, a mile add a half west of town, between George Freeman and George Spencer, two colored men, causing blood to flow on both sides. News.

Three Ttrnadwav cars, four trucks, a mail wagon and a light cart became en- tanglou in a street blockade we otner day. It was bitter cold and the driver felt grieved that they had to stand still, according to the New York Sun. Then a handsome carriage with a spanking team and an old driver in livery tried to worm its way through the blockade. There was a rattle and a bang, and the carriage wheels were caught fast by the wheels ol a truclc "Hah, ye swash-faced, lunk-headed baboon," a car driver yelled to the liv eried driver.

Hia over coat, which he wore tightly buttoned about hia body, waa to nearly new that the "tnre ereuea" had not vet disap peared. It waa of good material and had probably cost forty or forty-five dollar. As soon as the door closed be hind him the man took off the overcoat. threw It on the counter and laconically aakedof the pawnbroker "Howmuchr "lTonr dollara." was the response, after the rarment had been examined. "It coat me forty dollars. I want ten dol ler nloadod the man "I'll irive you five dollars.' "No." "Well" after another critical examination "I'll let m k... el dnllera snd not a cent more." With a curse the man put the six dollars in his pocket and walked out the itreetta ahlver in an old. thin and ragged suit of clothes which had previously been concealed by the over coat "That coat," said the pawnbroker tn e tvfnnd who had watched the trans action, "ha probably come from some eerelnu Twnwn's front hall: but I can't be expected to know about tho people who come here or me arucies mrjr bring, liesidea the coat ia cheap at aix dollars." Within five minutes after this inci dent a really well-dreascd man, but without an overcoat, stepped into tho placo by a side door. Without a word he took off his coat, cleared its pocketa of a handkerchief and two or three letters, which ho Jammed into . hla tm,ra nnnkelit and laid tho irarment on the counter. The pawnbroker looked over It and remarked: "Seventy five cents." The man shook hia head. "One dollar," aald the pawnbroker, and th customer held out hla hand and clntohed the money. The only word he poke was when hi gave a name to be written on the pawn-tickot. lie hur ried out In hlashlrt-sleevea and ran into a aaloon a few doors away.
