It would be a great scheme. - In connection with the mention of plate glass in towu, given last week, we failed to refer to the three or four places in The Randall block and C.H.

Of Cooney's company, in their dra matic efforts of last week Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we cannot stick to the Washington-like truth fulness of our ways and say that it was n success beyond all expectation. There are some really good points about their work and they are with out doubt siu'.-ere in their efforts to give a pleasing enh rbiinment,but as a whole it is rather light weight, with some thing or other lacking to in spire an audience. The gentlemen of the Methodist so ciety will cive an ovster supper and entertainment at their vestry this week Friday evening.

John Terry and wife were driving on the north side of Bridge street and a eon of Dr. Leclerc came up at a moderate speed on the south side of the street, both heading toward Portland street. Mr. Perry, who has a horse neithar a Directum or a Robert J., conceived the idea that young Leclerc was at tempting to run past him, and very foolitshly whipped his horse into a keen run when nearing the bead of the street. As a natural consequence he failed to make the turn up Port laud street and was overturned near ly in front of Goodrich's store. Mrs. Perry was thrown violently onto the concrete eidewalk and sustained pain ful bruises and supposed injuries to the spine. Dr. Woodward was called and the injured woman was placed upon a lounge and taken into Good rich's store, where she was cared for by several ladies living in the vicin ity, and later was made as comfort able as possible in an easy carriage and taken to her home.

Bennett Wednesday morning last, in consequence of which "Bayard" is stepping around with an exceedingly light and ekstic tread. II. M. McFarland made some very interesting remarks at the G. A.

Mac's words in reality were "an old line Democrat." The Phila May Grand Concert Co. of Boston will appear here Tuesday evening, October 23, under the aus pices of the Ladies' Aid Society. The proceeds will go toward the fund for painting the church. This company needs little recommendation, as it has been here before and will be fav vorably remembered. The new time card which went into effect Monday last does not mate rially change the time of trains, ex cept that the Hyde Park "flyer" is taken off and the Hyde Park mixed is back on old time, leaving here at 4:30 a. m. and reaching St. Johns bury at 8:50 a. m.

Slayton sought to recover balance due for manufacturing between 500,- uou and ouu.uiio leet of lumber at the Lanpher mill in Eden. Various claims were made by each party for non-iuiniment ot contract. Hunt claiming that lumber wus not whollv manufactured according to contract, and Slayton claiming that when im perfect work wus done it was because of the bad saw, which was shown to be badly rim-bound and too weak and limber to do good work. The arbitrators as is usual rendered a compromise award. Slayton recov ered something less than he claimed, about $100 net.and Hunt pays most of cost of arbitration, amounting to $82.59. The case was five days pending, actual work. Sawyer for Slayton; Hunt prose. The Grand Army exercises at the town hall Saturday evening were of a very interesting and entertaining character. An old-time Hyde Park audiei.ee honored the occasion with their presence, the house being filled from front to rear. The main object of the gathering was the presenta tion of a memorial volume by ex Gov. Page to Aaron Keeler Post, No. 91. This memorial is not only in itself intrinsically valuable, being handsomely and substantially bound and trimmed and its p5ges being of pnrchment, but has a much greater and higher value in that it contains a true, certified history of every hon orably discharged soldier In the towns of Hyde Park and Eden, a brief biography of its donor, etc., thus making it of rare merit histori cally. The exercises were full of pa triotism from beginning to end, the audience was enthusiastic and thQ' entire programme was completed without a hitch. Hon. II. H. Powers was the orator of the evening and as he came forward on the platform he was greeted with rousing applause. It goes without saying that the Judge's speech was eloquent and ap propriate. Space forbids us com menting on each individual number of the programme. Suffice it to say that the presentation was made in a hearty, whole-souled manner and ac cepted in a like spirit, the recitations were all excellently rendered, the speeches bristled with patriotism, good sense and wit, while the music furnished by the orchestra was up to its usual high standard. The Post expressed by a rising vote its thanks to all who assisted in making the meeting a success, and in conclusion all joined in singing "America," ac companied by the orchestra. Fol lowing is the programme as carried out: Music, .....Orchestra Hecitation Edson M. Stevens Presentation of Memoriul ex-Gor. Page Response of Post Col. Sawyer Music Orchestra Address Hon. H. H.
