If is remarkable that all of these dogs
that have been killed come through the
jEastern part of the town. There is
little more interest felt in this mad dog
question, and several persons who Were
Inclined to doubt the matter, previous to

last week, are now willing to admit that
there is something in it,

poorly constructed. ' The wire muzzle is
the most durable, and safest, A dog
that can take a none as large as , your

is not properly muzzled, and some of the
dogs with leather muzzles have been
seen to do it. Owners of dogs, need not
complain if their dogs are killed, while
wearing a loose leather muzzle, In the
present state of the public mind dogs

to law, or else they will be destroyed,

Howard, were arraigned before Justiee
R. N, Betts, charged with using threat?

George Redstone, who because of his
' close proximity to the lock-up is made to
pay tribute in matches to scores of tramps
and it-was for refusing matches to these
men that the Governor was invited by
them to come outside of his house, and
they would whip him. The Gov, made
complaint and officer Blackman waltzed
them before the Justice, who, finding
them guests of Newtown with out visible
means of support, breathed upon them
his benediction of 30 days In Panbury
jail, to which retreat they were taken by
officers Blackman, and Camp, in the Hi r

Reliable. It is useless to deny tbe
great curuti ve effects of Simmons' Liver
Regulator. Its virtues are attested by
thousands who have used tbe medicine,
and it Is now largely in demand- It
commends itself to the publio by its com
ponent parts being entirely vegetable,
no injurious effects from its use, being
pleasant to tbe taste, and Its operation
upon the Liver being perfect, a! tbe same
time so imperceptible that it interferes
with neither business nor pleasure,
I have heard Mr, Bsrbant in bis char
acteristic readings and recitations, and

a gentleman.

" why it is that his paper does not reach

is published on Thursday." The dis
tanee between ibis office, and the Post-

afternoon, and they leave the PoBt-offlce

Monday to go six miles, we are unable
to answer.

The meeting was called lo order by the
clerk. Mr. Legrand Fairohild was elect

and accepted. The object for which tbe
meeting was called was to purchase land.
Objections were made to this purchase,
and the law was read with tbe view - of
upsetting tbe scheme, and was the means
of provoking a good laugh. Some one
brought down the boase by referring to

imprisonment in jail. Craig, the tramp,
for tbe attempted murder of Wyant. ot
Washington, by shooting, which came
very near ueing etrectual, was sentenced
to imprisonment in the same lull for
eight months. It is presumed that Cann

from a revolver at him, because he
would have a great deal more satisfac

disastrous to his best interests. He' was
