Sunday on "Battle Row."

as badly slashed with a knife. 1 he
ounded woman is in a precarious
condition. The Gritlin woman is
il and will not be tried until there is
c.iangc in her victim s condition.
On the same day Theodore Young
shattered a beer bottle over the crani
um of Liza Ried, also a denizen of the
Jhute." The woman is a terror to
the other negroes living down there
and no one seems to blame Theodore
or smashing her.
Stewart Humber and his wife, also
f this same notorious settlement, were

struck the woman in the head with
something, almost knockiug out an
The band boys are very mr:ch dis
couraged over the tact that the peo
ple would not patronize the Heywood
entertainment and thus help them to
buy uni.'orms, and other necessary
equipments for their organization
he band has never refused to plaj'
for anything the people wanted, and
uring the summer time has given one,
and sometimes two, free concerts a
week. The bjys have invested
much in the first-class instruments
they use that they do not feel like sink
ing any more money in the band. They
lost about $15 on the Hey woods, and
arc now deliberating as to whether
they will throw up the sponge and
quit. Had the Heywcol show been
fraud, the boys would not feel sore,
but as they made a heavy guarantee
to get it, knowing its superb ranking,
they can't help but feel that their ef
forts count for naught.

licited subscriptions to purchase
Company Banner for the brave boys
who enlisted for the Cuban war,
having baen informed that the flag
would be of no practical use, and
wishing the entire company (both ofli
cers and privates), to share alike the
funds which represent our efforts in
their behalf, have deemed it both wise
and expedient to place to the credit of
said company, in the Citizens National
Bank of Lancaster, to be known as
reuet Junu, tne amount oi money
which has been contributed to be used
for the relief of the unfortunate sick
or wounded. Hoping to thereby estab

The Hey woods appeared at the
Court House Saturday night, and eve
ryone present says they gave the best
entertainment ever presented in Lan
caster. Mr. ney wood is far above the
average in his line, and is a whole
show by himself. The violin solo by
Miss Dresher. the singing of Mr. De
Bray, and the piano playing of Miss
Steele was pronounced by competent
julges to be of an unusually high or
der. The Record takes great pleas
ure in recommending the Heywoods.
They give an entertainment which is
worth double the price they charge.
