chicken was not in a healthy condition
when killed, and that poison was
therefore injected into her rystem
from it through the puncture which
the hone made in her hand. She is
quite disabled/ itlter4fi{oai. and continues

We regret to learn that T. T. I-Iouit.
the long established merchant near
Water street, has been indisposed, for
some days with symptoms of La
Grippe. Nevertheless, during his illness.
he ceases not to plan for the days
of restored health. To enlarge his
business facilities he is having the
debris cleared away preparatory to
the erection of a large three story
briclc business building on the corner
of Bridge alley and Merchant street.
With the new .Uonongahela Bank
building going up on one opposite
corner and Hearing completion, Poto
pie's popular store on another, and
H. F. Leonard's furniture store on a
third, only Tom's new business building
is necessary to complete the
quartet and make that point on Merig
chant street a center of increasing
commercial activity. May they all do
ic well, prospering more and more,

Messrs. huther Jacobs, A. O. Rice
and t, jJoc) T. H. Houit are at present
putting down new paved sidewalks,
and otherwise improving and
beautifying tneir grounds and property
on Guffy street near the Miners'
Hospital. Their work has added new
charms to the already pleasant place
3-1 where they dwell.
We are reliably informed that it is
the intention of the city authorities
to grade off the sidewalks at the
ct highest points on Merchant street in
order to give property owners an opportunity
to pave their walks to the
11- esta!;...,,ieii grade. This is a wise
g move; and will greatly add to the
beauty and symetry, both of the
street and properties located thereon.

As noted in Monday's issue, the
large packet Columbia, from Pittsburg,
steamed up the river to the F.,
M. and P. bridge below Fairmont on
Sunday last, with a la'.ge number of
prospective visitors on hoard, but being
unable to pass that intolerable obstruction,
it tarried oi ly a few minutes
there, let off a few passengers
willing to "hoof it" the rest of the
way into the city, when the band
played a parting dirge to "Fairmont's
forlorn hope" of welcoming vis'ting
strangers within her iii-sed portals,
and then returned, though, disappointed.
by the way whence they came. In
consequence of tlie'.anove incident,
the recurring question* propounded by
? inonr f.itizeilS
is, whether the 13. & O. railroad owns
the Monongal\ela rives or if it belongs
to the United States government? If
the former, then it is suggested that
t? ey move their tracks vlown to the
river bed and take possession by
right. If, however, the latter st'll retains
the right of way along her water
courses, then she ought to asseit it
and remove the bridge and a'i obstructions
to a free and nntrarr meled
navigation, such as she has encouraged
us to expect. Ample time lias
