H*4 s Vctksna for Calf Skies.
On last Saturday night quite an ex

rear of Bechtel's meat market. Mr.
Bechtel happened to be in the barn
when he heard some one approach the
door and euter. Hemaining quiet to
await developments, he was not long in
discovering the motive of the intruder,
who deliberately pulled a calf skin from
one of the beams aud threw it out the
door. When about to appropriate an
other skin Mr. Bechtel planted a right
hander square on the side of the jaw,
which sent his victim whirling through
the door. Bechtel followed and com
pleted the job in true pugilistic style,
although not strictly according to
Queensbury rules. The purloiner ef
the calf skins proved to be an employe
of tbe Bechtels. They have lost several
bogs and a quantity of feed lately, and
now tbiuk they know where the latter
went to. It is hardly necessary to state
that the man has lost his job, aud es

WASHINGTON 8 BIRTHDAY
Appropriately Celebrated By tba
To the Young Mcn'e Literary Club,
recently organized in this city, is due
the successful celebration of Washing
ton's Birthday last Wednesday. The
celebration took place in Sander's Hall,
and was largely attended by our patri
otic citizens and children. A very In
teresting and entertaining program bad
been arranged for the occasion. Prof.
Yeager presided and opened the exer
cise* with a few well chosen remarks.
First on tbe program was a recitation,
"Sword and Sbeafby Guy B. Klug,
rendered in a dear and forcible manner
that gave unmistakable evidence of tba
coming orator. After instrumental
m usic by Mrs. Kahler and Stanley Healey,
Menu*. George Connor, F. V. Yeager,
Theodore and John Itosen rendered a
patriotic air in a pleasing manner.
President Yeager then introduced Uev.
Watson, who delivered a very able lec
ture on the "Life and Labors of Wash
ington." Tbe male quartet, composed
of tiie above mentioned gentlemen,
followed Itev. Watson in a very enter
taining song, -Hocked On the Billows
of the D<-4|>." George Connor read
Washington's Farewell Address in a
clear voice, and was followed by Rev.
Herman Page on the "Character of
Washington." Ilia remarks were brief
and to tiie point, and to his storting
character, more than to anything else,
he attributed Washington's great sac
cess both as a general and statesman.
The exercises closed with the singing of
that popular national air, "America,'*
in which the whole audience joined
with a wilL Hev. Watson then pro
nounced the benediction.
We believe this was the first attempt
ever made iu this city to appropriately
celebrate the day, and from the success
attending the celebration it is safe to
say that it will not be the last

Gov. McConnell sent a message to the
house stating that after signing tbe
state wagon road bill lie had discovered
that an error had been made. The eo
rolling clerk had made the amount of
bonds to be issued 8135 instead of 8135,

to amend the bill in this respect though

Several measures were proposed. Mr.

J public lauds in this state. Mr. Crane's
took!house bill, unmdinff that stat* uu!
house bill, providing that state amt
