thus had two fifty cent pieces, $1 in

A serious position is that of a person
who through neglect of a seemingly
trivial cough, or cold is threatened by
that dread destroyer of mankind con
sumption. Do not neglect a cough or

pronounced incurable by all honest
physicians. Dr. Bell's Pine Tar Hon
ey is the best cough and cold cure.

The county court has ordered elec
tric lights placed in the Uouet House,
as suggested in The Record. They
will only be paid for when in actual
use, consequently will cost far less
than lamps, th'mneys, oil etc. It is
the rule with the Electric Liht Co.,
to charge for lights at so much per
month, bnt in this, case, it vory wisely
and kindly consented to deviate from
the rule. We understand the court
voted unanimously for the improve
ment, and they are entitled to a vote
of thanks from the people for rca'sing
so great an improvement
The county court, at its December
meeting, decided to tear away the old
work house, as it wa found a'ter ex
amination that it would cost more to
rerair and put it in decent shape than
to build a new one. Bids were opened
a few days since and the contract
given to John Hill. For the sum of
SI, 373 35 he is to remove the old eye
sore and erect a two-story brick
building with cells and office below
and living apartments above. He will
be permitted to use all lumber in the
present building which is opproved by
the court's committee and has, given
good bond for the faithful fulfillment
of the contract The plans and speci
fications are for an excellent and
handsome building, and it looks like
the fingers for its construction are ex
ceedingly low. Work has been com
menced toward removing the old fire
trap and the new house will be pushed
rapidly. The town is not "in it" on
the work and the place will be used
exclusively for county prisoners,
A Tony Affair.
The leading social event of the sea
son was the hop given at Masonic
Hall Wednesday evening. The young

the boys ever on better behavior. The
costumes of the young ladies were ox

never saw a prettier lot of girls in one
assembly. The immortal Henry Sax
ton was on hand wi.h his superb or
chestra and the music furnished was
the best, by far, ever heard in our city.
None of the many bands can touch
Saxon when it comes to dance music.
The large hall, newly papered, was il
luminated by many electric lights and
when the grand march was given the
scene was one beautiful to behold.
The merriment was kept up till nearly
three o'clock, when the shutting down
of the electric light plant forced the
happy party to take a reluctant leave.
