There was an alarm of fire on Tuesday

unsurpassed by the average oity hotels.
The oooking rauge in the kitchen we should
thin i would be the delight of the cooks.
Mr. Hofheinz promised to show ns through
the entire building when completed, and
then we will make further report.
A printer stood at the desk of a business
man the other day, and noticed him using
letter and bill heads bought of an eastern
house. Said the printer, who is a customer,
what would you think of me if I were to
go east and buy your line of goods for my
self and family?" The merchant replied:
'I would think you a fool when I know you
can get the same goods as cheap from me
and aid a fellow citizen." When the print
er called his attention to the imported letter
and bill heads, the merchant coughed and
went behind the counter to wait on a cus
tomer. And the same merchant only a few
days before asked the printer to give him a
free puff about bis big stock of new goods.

We hear it is proposed to erect a large
brick building by several parties, on the co
operative plan. The carrying out of this
idea generally would be profitable to indi

the town more rapidly and oheaply than it
can be done by any other plan.
Next Sunday is Christmas. There are a
number of widows and other helpless per.
is in our town whose situation should
appeal to the hearts and purses of our citi
zens of means to help them. We trust that
appeal, mute though it be, will not be dis
regarded in this professedly .Christian com
munity. It is too much the way of the world to
help those who do not need help, while
giving the needy the go-by. Suoh was not
the counsel nor the practice of our Saviour,
who made it his special mission to serve the
poor aad needy. Surely our people will
not be unmindful of his example on Christ
mas. , . .'
A singular scene for this place was pre
sented on our streets on Wednesday even

disposition has since been made of these
unfortunates.
