will recall, at the mention of his
name, the smiling face and uutaiyiug geni
ality of John M. Dodd, who for so many
years was connected with the firm of A. M.
Crothers, of thlscit). Mr. Dodd was one
of the most pleasant men to meet either in
a business or social way, in Springfield and
numbered his friends by huudreds. Five or
six years ago lie became interested in min
ing operations at ltiro, Dolores county,
Colorado, and sjient a portion of each year
In the mountains Later on he gate his
entire attention to his mine interests, and a
fewears agoremoted to Kico to take up
his permanent residence.
It will be interesting and gratiftlng to
Mr. Dodd's friends here to know that he is
now "Judge" Dodd, and occupies the com
mon pleas bench of Dolores county. At
the late election he was chosen by a large
popular vote of the jieople, irrespectit e of
party. He had not the most distant Idea of
becoming a candidate, but some time before
the election, he was waited uiwn by a com
mittee of republicans and democrats and
urged to run. He finally consented, and as
a result is now Judge John Miiton Dodd,
"if ) our honor please."
Jfr. Dodd has had no legal preparation
for the high office extended to him, but Is
studying hard and has the native capability
to do himself and the bench credit Tlie

In the direction of Columbus before the
friends of Lane knew that he had been
taken from the jail. Lane is charged
with the burglary of an Indiana, Bloomlng
ton and Western car In the yards at this
place, when It Is said he secured a large
quantity of butter and other provisions and
articles of value. It will be remembered
that about two years ago Mr. Osborne, a
grocer In the north part of the city, was
held up In his store as lie was coininr fmm
the cellar and a considerable amount of
money taken witli a number of articles of
goods Two men named Coulter and Kerr
were arrested at that time and sent to the
penitentiary for tho crime. It Is claimed
that Lane was one of the party who was In
the store at the time and it is probable that
he will be tried also on this charge It was
developed during the trial of Coulter and
Kerr that they had broken open during one
night seven different cars in the Indiana,

goods. When Mr. Schultz goes after his

A NOISE IN THE CEtLAR.
How n Lively Thomas Cat Aroused tlie
Inmates of an t'rbxna Ilou..
Saturday night the Inmates of the house
of a citizen on East Lattn, were scared al
most out of their senses by a noise In the
alld tlle police sent for. When Officers
Hauling and Corom reached the scene they
found four women standing on chairs, as bad
ly frightened as though a mouse had run
across the floor. All attempted to tell the
fate of the burglar In the cellar, that was
either dead or was bleeding to death from
the result of his wounds. The officers
thought it was no time to discuss the mat
ter, and the proper thing to do was to enter
the cellar and see what was wrong. Officer
Corom took the light and Officer Harding
his "bull dog," and they started down the
steps the burglar made a grand rush for
liberty, and dodging betw ten the legs of
both officers, through the door and out of
the house. !made his escape. It was a
good-sized torn cat that had been fastened in
the cellar. The disgust of the officers need
not be related.

congregation "colonized," and while they
were yet a part of the Central M. E. church
The amount of good Mr. Mast has ac
complished in these three decades of sen ice
in a noble and christianizing work cannot
be estimated, but it is on record in a divine
iKMik that eternity only can unseal. Mr.
Mast could readily have been re-elected,
but at the session Sunday morning partlcu
larlt requested the school not to vote for
him, as the combined labors of superintend

schools are too confining for him.
J. T. Kidgely, ttie retiring secretar". has
