Mr. Thos. B. Ford U remodeling and
modernizing his residence on the corner o
Washington and Broadway.
Miss Bettie Brooke Conway, niece of Mrs.
Dr. Wm. Mortis, of this county, and n
young lady who has many Iriends in this
section, died nt her home in Owetishoro on
the 7th inst.
Col. Dave Moore, ol this county, is said
to he the best man in this section in a calf
trade. He can buy finer ones for less
money than anyone else, and as a judge of
those animals he can't be bent. It would
pay some of our cattle dealers to interview
him on the subject.
The parties who took the trouble to po
into the engine houe of Messrs, .Tones &
Hudson, on Friday night of week, and
unscrew all the taps and bolt of the enjrine
are notified that they are known, and that
the next time such a joke will be rather
expensive to them.
A German carp eighteen inches long wa
found in a small pool in a branch on the
premises of the Feeble-Minded Institute, one
day the first of the week. It was washed
out of the pond a short distance off by
hifih water. There was barely wnterenough
in the pool to cover it, but it seemed to be
getting along all right.
The lateet thing out is' the f unshade hat
at Harris & Herrmann's. It is made on
the oider of a ladies parasol, and has a light
frame work attached to a band which rests
on the head ho that the air can pass all
around under it and keep the head perfectly
cool as well as shade the face. It is just
the thing for fishermen. Call and see it.
Mr. Joe LeCompte opened his bottle of
pills, about which there has been so much
cuessine. Tuesdav morning, and counted
the number contained in it, when it was
found that there were 1,572 pills. Mrs
.lohn Will Johnson took the bottle of
cologne offered as a prize to the lady
the nearest the number, her guess bein
1.560, and Officer P. F. Smith got the knife
offered to the gentleman coming the nearest
to it, lie having guessed 1.5S5 Five hundred
and thirty-one gentlemen and about
two hundred ladies, mudj guesses, and
they ranged from 300 to 13.G79,
We are informed by the who
listed the school children within the city
limits this year, that there are in tlii citj
from 200 to 250 indigent white children who
stay out of the schools for the reason thai
their parents cannot afford to buv books foj
them, and it is fair to presume that there-are
more colored children than white who
do not attend school for the same reason.
In everv other citv there is a fund provided
by the city to supply books to such childion,
and it seems to us that our own City Council
could not do belter than set apart $300
or $400 for that purpose every year. It is a
want that, will have to he provided for in
time, and the sooner the better.
-Sunday ulternoon about five o'clock,
Squire Henderson, colored, who was under
the influence of liquor, went into the establishment
of Mr. Dan. JJeagher, on Ami
street, and wanted whisky, which Mr.
Meagher refused to give him,..aiid put linn
o ulin the back yard.telling him to stay theie
and" sober up. In a, few miuules alter
Henderson took out his pistol and began
firing through the back doorut Mr Meagher,
it is supposed, as he was in range, and fired
two shots, one striking the door and the
other going into the ceiling. Dob Green,
u colored employe of Mr. Meagher, leturued
the lire, striking Henderson in the left
hhoulder, and inflicting a painful wound.
Henderson then made a dash for the door
and as he came in Mr. Joe Lambeit, who
was standing close to it, caught him,
wrenched the pistol out of bib hand and
knocked him down. As soon as he could
regain his feet he retreated to the back yard
and remained until arrested by Officer Steph
ens and lodged in jail.
