For a long time tho street known as Frederlca has been In a bad con dition. In the summer the dtibt was so heavy that ono troadlug up and down Its Bldcwnlks would al most succumb fifim strangulation, and In tho winter the mud was so deep that the citizens of that sec tion vtudlously avoided tho middle of the stieet, lest thoy btumblo Into tho quagmire and sink to rise no more. After, making many frantic .-ppoau for the street to bo iixoti up, and getting no results, some of tho leading citizens who dwell up that way decided to take mnttcrs Into their own hands nnd alleviate the Bufferings of their uelgbors nnd themselves, and so accordingly last Thursday evening several of them assembled with spades, hoes and shools and after a busy evening's work, the street was in as good con- dltlon as If a gang of professional road-workers had been upon It. Among those who participated In the enterprise were, Ex-sherlff, S. O. Keown, Messrs. C. B. Carden, ohn Bell, C. E. Smith, J. C. Riley, nnd J. C. Bennett. After the oven-' lng working had been given the r otrect, the ladles sprinkled the walks and roadway to allay tho dust, and' nightfall found Frederlca street In almost as good condition as it's i illustrious namesake. The gttntlc.1- men nre to be complimented upon their Industry and good citizenship. -V-- KICKED 11V A HORSE. Mr. Ed Cook, a prominent mer chant of Dundee, was very serious ly injured Inst Thursday when ho was kjckod by a horse which he was driving Into his livery stable at Dun dee, lie had taken the horse to wa ter and when Mr Cook tried to drive him Into the stable ho became I obstinate and refused to enter the door. Mr. Cook npproachrd him to ! force him to enter when tho horse kicked him, badly rulslng one nim land Injuring one leg. His clothes' wcro torn into shreds nnd he nar i rowly escaped more serious injury, i Mr. Cool: wns confined to his bed eepral days but is now able to bo j up again. gH - W1M VOl'K HORSES I ELEPHANTS ARE COMING:" i The giddier, gayest, grandest, gllt ' torlngest galaxy In the whole wide, wonderful woild Is trekking thUs 'way and will spread Us acres of, i-nts here on next Tuesday If one (.T-sn't Infer from this that refer- neo is made to the Sparks circus. the publicity man will regard tho case as hopeless. The familiar custom ?ias always I been to characterize each succes- ,slve year's circus as "biKgor and bet- ter than ovjr, but tho phrase h3 become so hacl:ri'?ycil that, this year, j tho Sparks circus hesitates 10 use It, J despite the fact that It adequately describes tho entertainment. Moro railroad cars are required to trans-' port tho show, bigger 'elite rr laised, moro area is needed to a-! ifomodato the hhow than over before. In ract, tno circus has reached n point where it is the despair of many of tho smaller i.iilroads and taxes their t'acillities to the limit, i for many double-length cars aro needed to convey tho gigantic can vas nomad from town to town. . Tho three-hour nrenic perform mice, below and nlott, the circus ut suros, scorns all comparisons and bieaks all records of the past. Ev ery one of the participants Is a ' champion in equestrianic, herlalls tlc, acrobatic, hlppodromatlc or gym nastic effort. Tho exhibit of human freaks, 1 eliminated a few years ago, has been ' restored, to the Joy of every circus lover. This parliament of peculiar 1 and puzzlngly physical phenomena ni'il prodigies will be on continuous view. MINER COMMITS SUICIDE Despondent because he was net permitted to, accompany a number of miners on a trip to Washington, D. C, R. C.
