MISCELLANEOUS.
There aro two blacksmith stops in
Caldwell.
Besides a large numberof carpenter?,
CaldweJ has a numbor if bricklayers.
S. B. Dement and J. Ilollioger do a
general express business.
J. L Ballard has a shoe shop

G. W. Froman has a meat market on
Market avenue, nearly oppcsite The
Tribune office.
Caldwell has not got a brickyard and
wants one badly. We don't mind pay
ing §15 or S20 a thousand, bat kick on
two or three times that.
A large number cf dwellings have
been erected on the north side. That
of T. T. Danilson is a fine one and
would bs an ornament to any eastern
city.
While not strictly a business item,
the Caldwell public school deserves a
place in this review. The building is a
large one, well built, and was erected
by subscription. Tt has an excellent
teacher, Miss Carrie E. Leech, a young
lady who has had much experience in
Colorado. About thirty pupils aie in
attendance. The people of Caldwell
are very proud cf the public school.
The Philadelphia Times, 1884.
The Times will enter upon the
year strosger and more prosperous
than ever before in its history—more
widely read and quoted, more heartily
commended, and more fiercely criticiz
ed, with a more complete organization,
ami an abler staff of contributors—and
with the same independence and fear
lessness that has made it successful and
powertul in the past.
The Times has no party to follow, no
candidates to advance, kut will meet
every issue, as it has ever done, with
consistent devotion to the right, to
honest government, and the public wel
fare. And, while maintaining its posi
on as tne leading journal tf Philtde -
phia, it will aim to be
new
the advance in all that can add value
to a newspaper. The value of a news
paper is not in its siza or display, but
in the intelligence and care, the
ciseness and freshness with which it is
edited. The Times spends laiishly for
news fiom sli parts of the world, but
all its dispatches are carefully edited
ard condensed, in order to give the
complete news of the day in the most
concise and attractive shape, and with
it a large vatiaty of entertaining and
iistruciive reading. The best writers
at home and abroad are employed
to enrich i s columns, and to make it
journal adapted both to the busy men
and to the 1 -itare of the home circle, a
welcome visitor to intelligent and hon
est citizens of every political, religious,
and soi i il taste.
The Weekly Times is a Itogetho
different from me weosly newspapers
of twenty j ears ago. The day of those
papers is gone by. The tel« graph and
better local newspapers every where,
pooially in the thriving centres of rural
population, have made the oil weekly
metropolitan newspaper unsatisfying.
Those that clung to rheir ancient
ages have lost their hold on our for
ward-moving people; they are but
shadows cf their former greatness, and
they hava but a shadow of their former
power. Tho e papers hava had their
usefulness, but it is gone; and, with it,
they are going, too It was not the fault
of tho papers; it was the improvement
of the country that brought about the
change. Man and women, wherever
thov live, now require fresher news;
and thev req ire more than news.
'Ihe Weekly Himes gathers off the
types of every passing week whatever
has lasting Interest to people at large 1 ,
and sels it before them in such
oaity of paper and print as would havj
astonished us all twenty years ago.
Daily— Twelve cents a woes;, fifty
cents a month, $G a year, two cents a
