Those upon whom warrants had been served two weeks ago for catching fish i illegally, but who secured a postpone ment of Vases were up before Judge Miller yesterday, Geo. K Redmond, of Neillsville, and Alex. Johnstone, of Chippewa Falls, deputy game wardens, appealing against them. Joe Pflieger was tried for dynamiting fish. It was proven and he admitted that he was in a party that had killed fish with dynamite, but it was not ptoven that he personally took any part in exploding the dynamite or lift ing the dead fish and consequently was discharged. Frank Wendorf, the Schofield saloon keeper, was next brought up. There were three complaints against life tor dynamiting fish to all of . liich he plead not guilty. As the most import ant witness for the state was n it pres eut the eases against him #(*> p,- poned to Friday, May 22d. In the cases against Harry Ca><>, Albert Zastrow and Fred Kumnierow the state recommended a discharge and they were thus disposed of upou the plaintiffs paying the costs. Henry LaPorte has, since the first cases were brought up, been arrested and plead guilty to using dynamite He paid a fine of $25 and costs.

Second place was awarded a young lady of Plainfield while Miss NGlie Nutter, of Wausau, won third. Speak- Jug of the subject selected for the oc casion Stevens Point Journal says : “The contest was in some respects one of the best ever held here. The selec tions were well made and each of the contestants acquitted herself or him self with credit. In years past it has excited the wonder of the audience to know what motive could have prompt ed some of the gloomy, woeful aud harrowing tales selected for reproduc tion by such immature pupils. The selections in this contest were quite common and sensible and were pleas ing to most of the listeners.” Of Miss Nutter the Journal says: “Miss Nutter’s selection was Mary Wilkin’s cat story, “An Object of Love.” This story is in New England dialect and its proper presentation calls for a good deal of dramatic art. Miss Nutter responded creditably to the piece and gave it a very fair rendition. The program was opened by Miss Imogene Harger, of this city, playing a piano solo and encore. After the de cisions had been made by the judges a reception was given by the normal school students to the visitors.

Silverthorn, iu 10:2 5 seconds and he also won the 220 yard dash in 34:1-5 seconds. Williams, of Wausau wou the quarter mile by a margin of ten yards. In the mile run a dispute arose. Gorman and Burek, of Wausau, took the lead and held it until the third lap at which time they were nearly 50 yards ahead of Ross of Stevens Point, when the latter made a spurt and closed up the gap inter vening, forging ahead and seemed a sure winner. He came to a halt when within five yards of the line and the others passed him Burek finishing third. The Stevens Pointers claimed their man had mistaken tlfe line but the judges warded the decision to Burek. Boelter, of Waus;u*, in the hammer throw, lowered the state record by six inches, throwing it 128 ft. 7 in. In the half mile Viele aud Burek for Wausau set such a fast pace that the other contestants dropped out aud they finished the circuit in the order named The low hurdles and pole vault went to Crawford of Grand Rapids.

Her people will move from Norrie to tbe extreme northern part of Wisconsin where the prospects for lum bering are more hopeful. Miss Nye will attend a normal school in the fall. The literery society of last Friday was one of the most lively and interest ing of the year. The occasion for this interest was due to the excellent prep aration of those who participated in the program, and also to the presence of four or five musicians ali of whom graciously responded to calls for music with one or more selections. Adolph Grethen, of Minneapolis, on Monday gave a short talk upon the value of teaching the tine arts in the country as well as in the city schools. He pic-, tnred a school in which there might be opportunity for all kinds of training with a large music hall in the centre.
