Through the carelessness of the gate keeper of the Big Four railway, on North Main street, who neglected to let down the gates last Saturday when cars were being switched across the sidewalk, Mr. 0. T. Baker came near being the victim of an accident, which might have cost him his life. Mr. Baker was crossing the tracks, pushing a cart, and had passed the first track and was on tt, second, when some freight cars which were being switched, struck his cart, throwing it sideways, the cart striking Mr. Baker in the hips. Had he been two or three feet further, the cars would certainly have run over him. Mr. Baker said he did not think that there was any cars on the track as the gates were not down aud did not go down until after he had got off the tracks altogether. This is not the first time that com plaint has been made about the negli gence of the gate keeper. Pedestrians look to the gates as protection, and to notify them of danger. No complaint has ever been made, as far as we know, of the West Main street crossing. Mr. Crane has always looked out well for the safety of the people who cross the tracks there. Elbert A.

What would be thought of the sanity of a man who would wear panta loons reaching below his heels into the mud and water. ; Rev.

They are Still on the Bowl. The statement is erroneous that after month's existence the young men' bowling club has come to grief, Neither is the treasury nearly depleted, for its condition at the end of the month was even more than expected, and the report of the treasurer shows a good sum still to its credit. As to members being reluctant in paying dues, there is truth in It, as no effort has been made to collect dues.
