We hope to see our town board make arrangements with some man to spriklo the streets with water from the lire hydrants. One man with a few feet of hose and small reel could keep our streets in excellent condition and thus avoid about the only dis agreeable feature of Canon City life —the dust. On Wednesday our firemen piled up a lot of boxes and bur re Is ou the outskirts of town and set them on fire to test the efficiency of our new hose company.

The Odd Fellows’ calico ball given on Thursday last was one of the most successful affairs of the season. By nine o’clock the hall was well filled and before an hour had passed more seats had to be provided for the par ticipants. Tnc dresses worn were unique and becoming, some of the gentlemen being dressed in full calico suits. The ladies looked as sweet and pretty as If on a summer’s picnic and such was the state of the ther mometer that many felt as though a calico dress was the most comfort able article of apparel that could have been selected. So large was the number in attendance that it would be impossible to give a list of those present but we should judge from the number of tickets sold that ibe uflair was a financial success us ’well as a social one.
