The Park block has been plowed up , this week , preparatory to setting out trees.

The patent bird cage received by the B. & M. surgeon at Prof. Martin's first grand prize distribution , Monday even ing , was decidedly unique in design , re sembling the old style "hoops" in vogue some years since , in every essential par ticular save in proportions. Although portions of the striking ma chine that has been located on the cor ner of Main and Dennison streets for the past ten days , have been carried away and destroyed , the "old thing" has been repeatedly repaired , and is still in the ring , with as large a number of "heavy hitters" hanging around as ever.

A resident of our town , while under the beatific influence of coffin varnish , came near losing his life at the round house , Monday night. While in a state of intoxication , and wandering around the shop , he must have fallen into the pit of the ponderous turn-table , and gone to sleep. During the night the turn-table was used , and fortunately for the mau in the pit , one of the men who was assisting in moving the table , and who carried a torch , spied the form of the sleeping person , else the probabili ties are , we would have had another tem perance lecture to present to our read ers , and another soul would have been ushered into eternity.

Ascertaining , the following day , that a well-dressed tramp was at Eckley , the coal-heaver took the train for that station , where the would-be gentlemanly tramp was detained by the agent , who promised the tramp transportation on the coming train. The clothing worn by the tramp proved to be the coal- heaver's , and his trampship was uncere moniously disrobed , and having been given what remained of a pair of over alls and a blouse , he was promptly bounced. The tramp struck the road running , and those who witnessed the tramp's exit , think he is running yet , somewhere down in Kansas. House plants for sale at the Metro politan Drug Store. A very neat ( and -withal practical ) joke was perpetrated by Inspector Lee of the U. S. Interior Department upon the land attorneys at Oberlin , Kansas , recently. The Inspector assumed the role of a land seeker , and visited each land man in the town , inquiring con cerning the timber-claim relinquishments - ments in their possession. Every man took the bait in a surprisingly voracious manner , and gave Lee the information desired , whereupon the Inspector went to the local U. S. land office at Oberlin and instead of making application for the numerous and sundry timber claims , had them all cancelled. Obcrlin land men are very cute not men that can't learn and * profit and we imagine that the person who catches them napping again will be smooth , very. For pumps and pipes go to Spanogle & Rinker. Some queer things have transpired in this city , the past few weeks , that evi dently merit investigation ; and it is rather surprising , indeed , that those parties interested do not investigate the affair fully and conclusively. Whatever other facts exist , it is evident that some one is short $800 , if the statements concerning the matter are veracious. If such is the case , the guilty party should be ferreted out and just punish ment meted to the same. If , on the other hand , current statements are false , unjust suspicions should be removed. While there seems to be an inclination to smooth over and suppress , it were much better that the real facts in the "case be made public. Two setts of harness , ( one light and one heavy , ) for sale at B. F. Olcott's , very cheap. CLOSE CALL Headmaster Phclan's youngest child narrowly escaped death by poison , Wednesday afternoon. The poison , in the shape of strychnine pills , sugar-coated , was administered to the little one by older sisters , who were in nocently "playing doctor1 and but for the timely arrival of a physician the baby must have died in terrible agony.

The company has been making large additions to their range in the vicinity of Stratton , by purchase , but having a capital stock of $ f)00,000 , they have not drawn very heavily upon their resources. Lewis Pate came up from Friend- ville , Sunday night , on a week's visit to his brothers in this vicinity. He had quite an experience en-route , with the conductor who had charge of the train. Being late upon his arrival at the depot at Friendville , he barely succeeded in getting on the front steps of the baggage car , after repeated attempts , supposing that he could get back to th'c coach. About four miles out of Friendville , the train was stopped , and Mr. Pate of course took advantage of the occasion to board one of the coaches , or rather to attempt to do so , as every attempt was frustra ted by the conductor and crew , who fired him off repeatedly into the ditch , not withstanding Mr. Pate's protestations that he didn't want to steal his way but wanted to pay his i'arc. As the train moved out , Mr. Pate tried to board each car , and was repeatedly thrown off , un til the train had attained such a speed and he was so exhausted as to be una ble to make further effort , and he was compelled to walk to the next station , a tiresome journey through the darkness of night. The conductor must have taken Mr. Pate for a would-be robber , as he went so far as to threaten to shoot him if he attempted to board the train. We understand that whiskey , women and cards in McCook are receiving the attention of the grand jury now in sess ion at Indianola. Judge Gaslin is no compromise-policy man on these points , and should the grand jury find any in dictments and the offenders be found guilty , somebody will think that th mills of the gods grind terribly fine.
