When the war open ed most of them were slaves. At the close of the war some officers in Genera! Thomas’ army bought of’ the government the hospital buildings, at Nashville,Ten: . used by Gen. Thomas during the war These they converted into a school jo; colored people. After six years’ use the buildings which at first were very frail, began to be unsafe. It was in this emer gency that a company of singers were or ganized with a view to raise money for new buildings. This company continued its work iu our own country, in England, Scotland and Germany till it had raised mostly $200,000. Ten years have passed away and now, on Thursday evening, June 23th, six of the original company with six others are to appear before us. It remains to be seen whether our people will appreciate those who have sung with such high commendation before the crowned heads of the old world and the most cultivated of our country. Obituary. —Mrs. Betsy Harger, re lict of the late Abraham M. Harger, and formerly a resident of Jefferson county. New York, died Tuesday morning, June 21st, 1881, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Daniel Jones, in this city, aged 90 years. Funeial services were held this (Wednesday) morning, Rev. Horace Gates, of St. Paul’s Church, officiating, and the body taken to Watertown. New York, to be laid beside her husband. —The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jamea Whalen, of the town of Watertown, who has been sick with consumption for sev eral years past, died Tuesday morning, June 21st, 1881, aged 17 years. Injured by a runaway. —The team of John Roberts, of the town of Ixiona, took fright last Thursday forenoon, near the Chicago & North Western depot and ran away, throwing Mr. Roberts out and severely injuring him. He was taken to the American House and a physician summoned, upon examination it was found that Mr. Roberts had one hip dis located and was otherwise severely hurt. He was able to be removed to his borne in the evening and is still con fined to his bed but improving so rapid ly that it is expected he will be around shortly. This is the second accident of the kind Mr. Roberts has met with with in a year or so. At his age, 65 years, such mishaps are a serious matter. Dr Barbe Last week Thursday > .M. N. Ladder got word from a young man who usjm to work around his stables that t\ye horse which was stolen from his ban fa year ago last January was in Chicago. The Doctor immediately took the train for the '.rick ed city, and upon arriving therein, in com pany with the young man. made his way to where the horse was owned. There was his horse sure enough, and the doctor says that um recognition was mutual. The horse smelled ol and fondled him with ins lu-se as ii he had round a long lost triend. The man who had the horse in his possession was a butcher and claimed to have bought the horse of a horse doctor, who bore a somewhat doubt ful reputation, about fifteen months ago. The butcher no doubt came honestly enough by the horse bm. it is thought that the horse doctor knew the horse to be stolen proper y, at least, if indeed he was not in collusion with the thieves. The horse was putin charge of the police, and on the 30th of this mouth Dr. Barber will re eve his stolen property upon satisfactory showing that the animal he* longs to him, which he can do with very little effort. The Chicago police have hopes ol getting the carnage and other property that was taken -tthe same time, and also entertain some hopes of securing the thieves. It will be remembered that Jhe horse, and a carriage, harness, and lap robes were stolen from Dr. Barber’s barn on the night of the 3rd day of Jan uary, 1880, tli it the property could be traced no further than a few steps from the barn, and that no reliable information could be obtained as to tli : direction the thieves had taken, beyond the report of one of our citizens who thought he met the rig between here anti Ixonia the night the property was stolen. - - - * <9 . * —Mr. C. \V. Chappell, purchased a desirable dwelling lot of Mr. Da we yes terday, locate lou Bridge street nearly directly north of the Seminary grounds for the consideration of six hundred dollars. Mr. Chappell has in contempla tion the erection of a handsome residence, the plans of which will be drawn imme diately, and it is his intention to erect a building that wid be a credit to that portion of the city where it will be loca ted.—Eau Clair Free Press. • ♦ * —Don’t fail to hear the Jubilee Sing ers at Turner Hall to-morrow (Thursday) evening, June 23d. • • . St Bernard’s School. —The com mencement exercises of St. Bernard s school will take place on Wednesday evening, June 29th, 1881, at 7 o’clock, sharp, at Turner Hall. From the past excellent exhibitions of this school, our citizens may reasonably expect a splen did entertainment. Last year the immence audience that witnessed at Turner Hall the tine display of dramatic talent by the pupils of the school, were very agreeably surprised. They gave evidence of careful training by the Sis u rs. Those will be fortunate who can secure their presence in Turner Hall next Wednesday evening. - - Caught up by an engine.—Godfrey Studri, a lad of some 14 years of age, whose parents reside in the Second ward, was struck by the cow-catcher of the 3 o’clock passenger train coming west last Thursday afternoon on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway this side of the 2 mile bridge, and was thrown into the air a distance of 15 feet, falling upon the side of the track. When picked up it was though he was fatally injured, one arm and leg being crushed, and receiving, as can well be imagined, terrible bruises about the head and different portions of his body. The boy was carried to bis home and received prompt medical attendance. He is getting along quite comfortably and strong hopes are entertained that he will recover from the accident. At the time he was struck a severe storm was prevailing and he was running to reach shelter when the train came thundering along, and either through his own care lessness, or not hearing the cars on ac count of the din of the storm, was caught up and thrown to the side of the track as before stated. It was, all things considered, a most miraculous escape from in'stant death. —The city of Watertown has her own Superintedent of Schools independent of the rest of the county but is is discovered that for the past 15 years the wards of the city in Jefferson county have been taxed a pro rata share toward paying the salary of the county Superintendent. The amount of the tax with interest foots up to about $3500 and an effort will be made at the next session of the Board to cover this sum back into our city treasury, which would be a perfectly equitable proceed ing. Supervisors Sprague and Sweeney are on scent of this matter and will follow it up in the interest of the city. —— . m —We have received the Premium List for the twenty sixth annual fair of the Jefferson County Agricultural Society to be held at Jefferson, September 13, 14, 15 and 16, 1881. —Lake Mills is taking proper steps to celebrate the Fourth of July this year in a manner befitting the occasion. of a Centenarian . \ Peter Bissett, undoubtedly the oldest’ man in Wisconsin,died Friday last, June 17tij, ISBI, at the home of his son,Captain John Bissett, in the town of Milford, this county, at the extraordinary age of 102 years. He was born in the Dominion of Canada. September 18th, 1779. The deceased participated in the war of 1812 on the British side and was able to con verse with clearness to the last on the scenes and incidents connected with that leading event in American history. For the greater portion of his life he followed the business of a river pilot. Twenty-five years ago he came to Wis<sbnsin first set ting in Whitewater,"subsequently residing in Fond du Lac and for about three years making his home with his son, Captain Bissett, where he closed his long, earthly career. The centenarian had been mar ried only once, his wife dying some eight years ago at a ripe old age. The couple had lived together G 5 years. Three chil dren of their issue survive, two sons and one daughter. Mr. Bissett celebrated his 100th birthday at the Jefferson County fair September, 1879, and the sprightli ness and activity both of his body and mind on that occasion was a marvel to everybody. This spring our aged friend cut ten new teeth which he was able to use to advantage with his good appetite and at the saine time his eyesight im proved and was better than it had been for years before. He had been ailing, but not seriously, for three weeks pre vious to his (iemise and he passed to the other shore, calmly and apparently with out pain. The body of Mr. Bissett was taken on the day of his death to Fond du Lac, his former home, for interment. Since writing the above we have re ceived the following additional facts con nected with the life of Mr. Bissett. He was born at Shamblee, Lower Canada. When 28 years of age he went on a voy age of 5 years in the country of the North West Fur Company, then inhabit ed by Indians. When he returned he hired out as a teamster in the war of 1812, At the close of the war he return, ed home and was married to Miss Margar et Miet, of Quebec,and they had 13 chil dren born to them, 85 grand children and 115 great-grand children. Saturday morning, June 18th, the funeral of the deceased was held at the Catholic Church at Fond du Lac, of which Father Dale is pastor, and the services were largely at tended. Surgeon Spalding. Dr. W. C. Spalding of this city last week received a commission from Gov. Smith as surgeon of the fourth battalion, Wisconsin militia, composed of the Wa tertown, Madison, Portage and Beaver Dam companies. We know whereof we speak when we say the Doctor is a pretty hard man to ‘‘play off’ on, and the man who gets excused from duty will have to produce a tongue on which there is a coat as thick as a door mat. A good one which may be related in this connection is told on the surgeon and assistant sur geon of the 29th regiment, by Wm. Som merfield, hospital stewart of the regiment, who prepared the prescriptions of the doctors. Mr. Sommerfield tells the story that as soon as he found out the doctor who was to attend the surgeon’s call he always knew the kind of medicine that would be in demand, and often took time by the forelock by having it prepar ed in advance. For instance *as scon as he saw the majestic form of Dr. Spalding making its way towards the squad of sick men who had been marched up for their rations of medicine, he would fall to and make up a quantity of powders, and when it was the assistant’s morning he varied the programme and made up a pile of pills. Once in a while the pre scriptions would ,T ary a little from the stereotyed ones in a few particulars, but he made the prepared medicine answer. And men died and got well about the same in the 29th regiment as in other regiments notwithstanding they were giv en powders one day and pills the next. —Don’t foil to hear the Jubilee Sing ers at Turner Hall to-morrow (Thursday) evening, June 23d. DODGE COUNTY. Juneau, June 21, 1881. Mat. Schilling;, for several years past the faithful jailer of the County jail, has resigned his position. The work of laying the cellar wall of F. W. Lueck’s new store building is pro gressing finely, and the carpenters will be able to commence their part of the work next week. There will be no celebration of the 4th of July at this place this year. The Pres byterian Sunday School will hold a pic nic near Minnesota Junction on that day, and in the evening the firemen will give a ball in Congress Hall. County Court disposed of considerable business last week, being in session from Monday till Saturday It will continue in business during the present w eek. Mrs. Marx, mother of Mrs. Richard Mertz, has for some time been seriously ill at the residence of her son in Beaver Dam, but is now improving. An assault and battery case between F.

Thk new school house is almost finished, but the finishing work drags slowly along. \ I. G, Allard has returned from a two weeks’ trip to Dakota, where he has been visiting friends. Mr. Calvin Ely, a former resident of this place, visited friends here last week, accompanied by two of his daughters, Mrs, Van Ostrand, of Neenah, and Mrs. Aaron Potter, of Dennison, lowa. From Colorado. Howardsville, Col. June 14th,’81. Editor Republican: —We arrived here about two w T eeks ago, and will re main here for some time to come yet. Mr, Sanford had rented a log cabin here last fall, and time expires the 27th hist., and as we do not like it and can’t get one that will suit, we concluded to build us a log house 14x18 and are at it now. We cut the timber on a side of the moun tain, as steep as a roof of a building. After cutting off the length we wanted, we let them go down, and the way they did go, was fun for such old boys as we are. We are still waiting for our trunks to come over the range, and Mr. Sanford’s assaying apparatus. After the latter gets here, he will examine the ore to see whether there are millions in these Moun tains or not. There are certainly plenty of claims, prospect holes and some mines all along, more or less mineral, but the amount no man can tell without assaying it, aud we shall try it thoroughly. Mr. Sanford, who w'as all through the Gunni son country last year, says there it more mineral in,these mountains surrounding this valley than in all the Gunnison country. The ore here does not run high grade, as I can learn from 40 to 100 ounces to the ton. The high land, many times, four miles east of here, has run 900 oz. mill run, but there they tun nels dug 200 feet deep each, which ac counts for their higher grade ore, and which convinces us lhat the deeper you go the richer the mineral. Consequently all that is needed here is the money to hire the mines or prospect hole (10 feet deep) and dig deeper. ® There is no excite ment here at all this summerjso for, and these claims can be bought cheap,and now is the time to make the in vestment, for as sure as the railroad gets into Silverton, men with means will come in*ready to invest it, and then the miner will ask a good round sum. Why, there are men here now that have been waiting for this boom for six years. They come here every summer and just dig 10 feet, or send SIOO to some friend ;to hire the 10 feet dug or blasted out,J which the law requires them to do every year for five years, theu after the SSOO worth of work is done, the government issues a Patent of their claim,’then it is their’s. But should they foil to do their SICO worth of work each year, any one can step in and take possession of the mine after the year is out, and the assessment and the claim are forfeited. This town lias about 30 houses, chiefly log cabins and occupied by men mostly. We cau claim three ;!women, one a late comer, Mrs. Pearsou, the lady which the Durango Record made such a fuss about, and I see our Gazette copied it, as having been the mother of the first child born there, which was true, but the balance having such presents lavished upon th child for being such, is not true. This very extraordinary generosity sprung out of the editor’s brains. These newspaper men (the one in this case is a lady, I un derstand) are very visionary, but of course this applies to Colorado only. We can lay claims to three saloons, one brewery that brews its own beer; all three took in about S2OO last Sunday. It don’t take long to do that when drinks are 25 cents each, but I see they sell beer two glasses 25 cents With beer at this price an anti-treating law would not be necessary, I fc think, in Watertown. We have splendid pure mountain wa ter, and mixed with milk at 15 cents a quart, it is our common beverage. If Fred Winkeuwerder were here in charge of this ranch, with such a nice stream of water running through the creamery, he certainly would think it a bonanza. Again I have to go back to my town. One butcher shop and one, blacksmith shop, both doing a good business. I think a store keeping general merchandise such as is needed in this country, would do well here. Had I known what I do now, I should certainly have had a stock here. Three miles above here is the town of Eureka. It has two stores and are doing well. Fresh meat is not much higher here than at home, but everything else from 20 to 100 per cent, higher. Lum ber S3O for spruqe, the only kind manu factured here. Shingles $6 per thousand. If there w T as any signs of a boom here this season Mr. Sanford and I would have put up a saw mill, as we can have a splendid water power at this point with little outlay. The streams are very rapid and the fall of the Anesuas river is from 50 to 75 feet to the mile. Oh, if I only could transfer this stream to Wa tertown,! would willingly settle that bond debt which holds our city by the thicat. Tell my friends, the Wiggenhorn Brothers,that I am in hopes that their wish will come true, that I strike a mine rich enough so it would enable me to pay off that bonded debt of our city. That would indeed give me pleasure Aid then I would like to show to some of my friends what could be done with our city out of debt. In all probability I shall be the owner of some mine before I come home this fall, but can’t expect to realize anything out of it this season, for it costs too much to ship the ore to Pueblo or Denver to get it smelted. There was a smelter in Silverton, but it was torn down and is now being built up again in Durango; changed its location on ac count of the coal there. My partner says, however, from the looks of the works that it was not put up nor manag ed right; wasted too much ore. Yours, W. F. S. Board of Street Commissioners Proceedings of a regular meeting of the Board of Street Commissioners, held June 20th, 1881. Roll called and all members present. Com Baxter chosen chairman pro tem. The reading ot the minutes of the last meeting was dispensed with.

He says: “In the fall of 1876 I was taken with a vio lent bleeding of the lungs followed by a severe cough. I soon began to lose my appetite and flesh. 1 was so weak at one time that I could not leave my bed. In the summer of 1 877 I was admitted to the City Hospital. While there the doctors said I had a hole in my left lung as big as a half dollar. I expended over a hun dred dollars in doctors and medicines, was so far gone at one time a report went around that I was dead, I gave up hope, but a friend told me of Dr. Hall’s Balsam for the lungs. I laughed at my friends thinking that my case was incurable, but I got a bottle to* satisfy them to my sur prise and gratification, I commenced to feel better. My hope, once dead, began to revive, and to-day I feel in better spir its than I have the past years. “I write this Lopingjyou will publish it, so that every oue afflicted with Diseased Lungs will be induced to take Dr, Win. Hall s Balsam for the lungs, and be con vinced that consumption can be cured. 1 have taken two bottles, and can positively sav that it has done more gocd than al ] the other medicines I have takensince my sickness. My cough has entirely dis appeared, and shall soon be able to go to work. Sold by druggists.
