'l'he case was in a short time brought to iJ stand by the attorney for the . defendant , 'Vall and Gadd who filled a demurr to thc petition. 'l'he state was given an opportunity - tunity to ammend but as thc case was brought under the wrong scction for the chargeR set up in the complaint , the state cou1 < 1 not procced with the case with au ) ' hopes of success , so thecouuty attorncy had Mr. Scribcr ar- raigncd on tHe charge of allowing canl playing in his saloon.

Mr. Mc\Vitliams intcnds lixing up boxes for them in the city park. lIe says in 'l'abor the sqnirls are numerons and are protected - tected by the city , imposing a finc of $25 011 anyone who kills onc. He says many of them arc very tame and will eat nuts from a person's hand. He thinks thcse of his will continue tame if boys or others do not frighten them by throwing at them or by run- n1l1g after them. In order to protect the squirrels from harm he proposes to have the city council pass an or < 1 mmce impo - ing a fine of $25 for killing one of them. Mr. Mc\Villiams brought with him a supply of hickory nuts to last thcm un till fall and Mr. Geo. , Hersh of Missouri , , has proffered to send out several bushels ofValnuts ; for thcm to feed upon. Mr. McWillians } descrvcs great credit for the interest he has manifcst- eel in the matter and we hope he will succccd in populating our city park with a large : family . of squirrels. A ( JIlBO of MlstakeD Moult ) ' . It is not , always that things are as they secm to one whose yei ! are failin . Just what had. . come over L. B. Cole last Monday - day noon as he was going home to d 1 ner was a mystry that attracted - tracted t.he attention of his friends. Usually "Coly" has his bcttcr' judgemcnt wit.h him and no one had had an occasion before - fore to accuse him of being luna. 'Vhy he should stop on the corner at the llroken Bow State Bank and pef1istently wave his hand down the street at some apparent person when no one could he seen in that direction was a mystery difficult to explain. Finally - ally after making several attemps and receiving no salute in return he wended his way homeward , not a little char -ined that his supposed lady friend had not acknowledged his courtesy by at least. a wave of the hand. On his return he investig-ated and found that the lady still occupied the side walk in front of Wilson & Drake's store dressed in the same blue calico wrapper , but instead - stead of being the persoll he supposed , it was a dummy placed there for a sign. Hcre after if you sce him lift his hat as he passes the Indian bust or cigar sign in front of Mike Scanlon's restaurant , do not be surprised as it may be another case of mistaken - taken idenity , for which his eyc sight only is responsible.
