ft !4 TERSE TOWN TOPICS. The people ot thia city cannot Ik too careful and attentive to thvir prcmiHeH tind to the hjiTo keeping of their' property in general thia jcur. For the' punt fccven rciht years we have been practicnlly inolut'cd from trump and ad venture r jf the lower order, but, owing to the jjro8crous condition of the country and tho railroad construction work, u great ammy of thiMclnKS are Ix-ins dumped in thl vicinity. Nearly thrte hundred men Imve been brought here by the railroad contractors within tho past three months and out of that number not rnoic than f-eventy-fho mo at nuik Tho others are scattered about town. iSume of them vroik and home ilon't. On account of the extreme drouth the the foiCbt flres or the pant week aMHtimed proportions, that, for a time, looked iuite heiious for outlinn camps. The greatest lire wus to the east of the Crys tal Fulls mine over the great chopping made by that company lact winter. Sumo' el it came pretty close to the Hilltop and for a time it looked hcrioiiM and the men were bu.y lighting tins, l'artoftho day, Tuesday, communica tion with Mansfield was cut off. Forest fires have Thcii ruging nil over this rango tho past week. Monday they were so threatening at Niagara, in Dick inson county, that the lire civjino khm wnt down from lion Mountain. It was thought at one time that the whole town, including the fine paper mill of tin Kimlierly -Clark company, was -doomed but the residents, with the assistance of tho lire engine, succeeded ia warding it off with tho loss only of fcome of the pulp wood piled in the yards. Superintendent llennett pursued a lilicrnl policy with the men at the Ciie.it Western nunc Inst Monday pairg each man ten dollars with which to buy him a vcvr outfit. An outfit costs (as was hhown by one of our readers hint (winter not less than ten dollars. We learn that nearly $1500 were paid out to tho men that day. This sum, added to tho hiss by stoppage of tho mine, means ft great deal to the mining com pany. The John Tufts company is going to Live tho people of Crystal Falls an op portunity of attending a regular city conducted sale of ahirt wainta next Tues day. This is a bona fide sale, and opportunities will bo offend that cannot Ik) had at any other placet n the city. They explain all about this hide in their ad in another column.

Mr. Abbott has taken hold of tho village matters in a thorough, up-to-date busi ness manner and promises to give our western neighbors the bent administra tion in every way that that municipal ity ever enjoyed. In spite of tho high pi ices for railroad ties, the Manistiquo Ti ibune is informed that the demand exceeds the supply. Most of the railroads are experiencing difficulty in securing what they want, and it looks ns though (trices would go still higher. A good tract of cedar now adays represents a fortune to the owner, and there is also a big demand for tam arack and hemlock ties. Tho Misses Henderson are working early and late theso days to keep up with their orders, but there is always "room for ono more."
