Accordingly another de tachment of sixty odd, under Lioutenaut Willis, was sent to Pueblo for the winter. Colonel Cooke now gave orders to the commanders of companies to leave the ox wagons and pack the baggage on mules and oxen. It was laughable to witness the antics of the frightened oxen after their packs were on. Some of the boys said they "kicked up before and reared up behind," bellowing, snoning, jumping up, wheeling around and pawing and goring the ground. However they soon became perfectly gentle.

Clark teleura w j is 13 years old Kit:II M'F.EK. . , and was born with his unfortunate deformity. He has no use of his lower limbs and propels himself alonn the street by swinging his little body between his arms. Many persons have been moved to | sympathy for the poor little waif and have turned aside from the hustling throng to drop a|f?M pennies in his hand. He will be missed by our people to whom he is a familiar figure. His teacher. Miss Nellie Barnes, for a long time, took great pains to instruct him, and was instru mental in having a fund of $125 raised for him, which amount is now deposited in the Traders Bank as the "Sheltonfund." Now that he is to be sent away it is nofknown what disposition will be made of this fund. The boy lives with his step-father, John Davis, near the B. & 0. depot, and will remain there until his clothing and tights arrive, which were ordered this week by the Chicago man who came to get him. The man who came forShelton Mr. F. L. Porter, is a native of Cincinnati, and says he will secure a very valuable museum freak in Taylor county. It is a badly deformed man. who has no forehead, has webbed fingers and is almost covered with hair, in fact the unfortunate creature hardly resembles a human being.

You are mighty free about tell ing what a good thing for a town a home paper is, but are back ward when it comes to helping that paper with cash, aren't you? The home paper doesn't charge you interest on back subscrip tions, but you will wait till the last thing before paying it, don't you? You are mighty anxious to have the home paper spend money with you. but are careful to spend as little as possible with it, aren't you? \ou know that the best adver tisement any community can have is to send out over the country a live, wide-awake, pro gressive newspaper. Tho newspaper is the mirror in which the outer world catches a reflection from your com munity. Do you care anything about, that? Your home paper should bo I very near to you. It tells you who is dead, who is sick, who is married, who is born and many other things you would like to know. It tolls you what the courts are doing, who the jurors are, when to go to church, to county court and when to send your children to school. ??Yet in spite of all these bene fits. some* people say that the home paper is not half so good as some city paper that has no ieterest in their business or suc cess. The home paper, like the home church, is too often ne glee ted by those who are bene fitted by it."

The Sentinel of last week says: " *lf we nad license.'" we have had it so often told us by the advocate of that measure, "'boys and men could not get whiskey.' " What are the facts now that we have license? Is it true that boys and those whom it is known get drunk at every opportnnity, still get all the whiskey they want? It looks like it. Is there now no Sunday selling? This paper cannot answer the ques tion, but it hears many charges to that effect- The town author ities ought to prepare to fence Latrobe street in on Saturday evenings and make it the regular dumping ground for the over loaded stomachs of those who put in the night filling themselves with bad whiskey. And by shut ting off the above named thor oughfare from general use, the Sunday morning church goer would bo forced to seek another route to the sanctuary, and thus avoid the sickening spectacles presented by the streets last Sunday, that is so completely given up to the saloons.
