A trip over to the water works a dayor two slnce showed good progress in the way of obtaining a mifflcieut gupply of good spring water.

Starting twelve years ago ia the gallery now occupied by Story, Mr. Lewis gradually developed his business until his gallery was equal to any in the state.

A few of the professional croquet playera left over from the generation of some years back, of which our old friend John Schumacher is captain, have ütted up giounds on the old jail square, and are tcriiblv immoderate in their playing. Only last Saturday night thecrowd played there under the lare of the electric lij;ht until half-past 10 o'clock. with no screens up to hide them in any way from public view. Monday night the thing was all cut and diied to have a resolution introduced in the council forbidding the keepInjt open of all croquet grounds attei 9 o'clock p. in., but the councilman who was to introduce it got scared out by threats of boycottlng at the polls, and "forgot" all about the resolution he had written out and in hls pocket. At the council meeting Monday evcning the statement was made that the proper official, whose duty it is to prosecute tramps and vagrants when they are arrustcd, refuses so to do, and will prosecute a tramp only when arrested for a crime. This course, it is alleged, makea our city a rendezvous tor tramps, who teel thatthey are protected here, and consequently burglaries and crimes are tast incieasing in 'our inidst, and there is no power to jirevent. Is this so? And f so, how long will it remaltl so? Tbere is a feeling prevalent among the citi.ens vh one houses have been entered, or attempts made to enter them, that the thieves are not tramps, but a gane of fellows who live in town, han-r about saloons and have no visible ínuans of support.
