A few days ago. a teacher In one of the

jrot a bench, placed It surahi-d the door,
crawled up to tho transom and tried to

Judge Hlrd was somewhat busier
yesterday than he ha been for several
days past, owing to the appearance of the
illleers with three unfortunates whom
they hail picked up during their rambles.
l'he llr.-t kio tried was that of a man
named Mharles O'Xeil, who was arrested
for being disorderly. The Jtt.lge heard
the ease and nlaced a line of live dollars
and costs upon hl head; being un
able to furnldi his Honor with the re
quired amount, he was sent to the cala
boose for live days.
Then came the turn of a gentleman
by the name of X. J. Pettis, who was
charged with the very common misde
meanor of having been drunk, for which
he was lined one dollar and costs, and
was given a stay ot execution.

A Mound City exchange says; "The

evening, was one of the mot pleasant so

romfoitably tilled with a select party of

handsomely attired in calico of every hue
and design. It was the first calico party
this winter, and the ladles never looked
better or were, more becomingly dressed
than at tills party. The supper and music
wero both excellent as usual, ami every
thing passed oil agreeable to all parties,"
"Genevra" was at It again yesterday
evening in the Sun, but it is tlte same old
song. She wishes us to prove that the

"They lied." We. replied: "They did
not." She reeponds : "Prove that they
did not." Wo have their word for what
we have said, and have offered U in evi
dence. "But why don't they deny my
charge through the public press?" asks
"Genevra." Wc don't know. Probably
they believe they arc not called upon to
deny such a charge from n source not

On last Thursday evening, the ladles of
the Methodist clittrrli gave another of
their pleasant entertainments at the
chtircli, and wc arc qttltcat easo In our
conscience when wo assert that on no
other similar occasion has the enjoyment
been ofa more pleasing character. The
programme presentod was ofa varied and
very Interesting description, consisting ot
Instrumental and vocal mulc and select
reading. The refreshments, after tho
musical entertainment had been conclu
ded, were of tho most palatable kind,
consisting of'sandwlchrs.cakc of various
kinds, and the most delicious collie, to
which every one paid ample JuMlce. Af
ter the audience had appea'cd their appe

The llrst part of the programme wo
opened with an organ solo by Prof.
Chandler ltobbiu, who Is known In ibis
city as a gentleman of line musical talent,
and who performed his task with every
indication that Ids reputation as such had
not been over-estimated,
'l'he solo was to have been followed by
a solo and chorus by Misses Ungles and
Pace, and Mo-rs. Hacker and ltobblns,
entitled, "Von are Always 1 oting to
MO," but owing to reasons of their own,
another piece was sub-tltutcd, which, we

titled "liuth and Naomi." The singing
of thu lady was simply superb, and was,
even agalnt the protests of the Kev. Mr.
Wallar asking the audience to refrain
from exhibiting their appreciation by the
noi-y clapping ot hands aud stamping of
feet, loudly applauded.
V duet entitled, "Go w here the mist are
Sleeping," was then in order, but owing
to the fact that tor several day the la
dies whose task It was to perform the
piece, have liecn somewhat nidispo-ed, It
was pa-scd over, though not without re
gret by many, as the Misses Steele are
cousid-red to be line vocal muicians.
Prof. ltobblns then entertained the au
dience with a verv beaiitltnl solo called
Joy Green," which he executed In the
nio-t asproved style.
Then c.imc a quartette entitled, "Dream
on, My Soul," by Misses Ungles and
Pace, and Messrs. Hacker and MeGee.
These ladles and gentlemen are also quite
famllur to our people as musicians of far
mure than ordinary ability, and their ef

could be expected, owing to the fact that
he is a Dutchman, and Dutch, you kno.v,
