Times: Hallowe'en operators seem to have been partioularly aotive last evening. All along the streets Tnes-dav morning broken faitobing posts, ■overturned horse hlocks, signs in unwonted pusitions and shattered fences and gates testified to tbe presenoe of the annual misobief maker. Several laughable inoidents and one or two of a more serious nature were witnessed by chance passers by. In one instance a ■deputy attempted to ariest the riugleadeis in a gang of maranders and was -promptly set upon and quite severely tieaten. Those who ohanoed to be on Congress st. about 10 o'clook saw the riohest sight of the season. Suddenly a large orowd of men and boys appearéd around Huron st. running for dear Hfe and closely pursued by an exceedingly ■wrathy and datermined looking oitizen arrayed in the long, white garinent whioh custom makes sacred to the sleeping apartment. Holding the aforesaid garinent well above his knees for greater convenience in running, pantiug from his uuaocustomed exertions, the enraged honseholdet kept steady upon tbe trail, although bearis of perspiration were forced ftom his forehead and heartfelt exclamations from his lips by the frequent injuries resulting to his bare feet from cobble stooes. A f ter a run of some five blooks the thoroughly eniaged citizen gave up the ohase and sorrowfully retumed to -his home. Why isn't a wife the better half when ehe's always getting the best of the other half?
