"Scarlet fever1' slgus ure becoming scarce - hope tbcy'U soon disappear altegether. The new cash rail road in J. T. Jacobs & Company's store attracts considerable ittention. The hearing of the John Qulgley will contested case will be tield before Judge 1 Harriman, April 14th. There is more new tiiuber iu the council this year thau for many yeara past. Now we fhall see wbat we shall see. If ever a nian's heart went out in gratitnde it was tlie pedestrian's last evening when he cauie to a walk that had been cleaned otV. J. T. Jacobs & Company have opened up their oiainuioth new store. They canie in with the blizzard, but don't propose to make an awful graat fuss over it.

A Germán workiuaii iu the employ of H. Etttiidge was badly Injured last Thurtday, by the premature tuinbling n of a wall of i lie ota lloopiT brewery that he was aasUtJng in deuiolisliing.

Now that the battle of the ballots is over, and the wounded have been carefully packed oü on a voyage up the famous health resort on (he Saline river, quiet again reigns. The candidate no more gete op e;irly and sits up late, "to see a man." The plan adopted by the republican city committee of writing up the ''obituary notlees" of the various candidatea, and giving them general clrculatioD among the people, met with favorable comnient. It was agood inethod of lajinr the gooil qualities of the candidates before the masses. Peter Carey proposes to cling to his location on the flat iron. and it is thought by many that when tho new station is built that it will be a better location than ever, hnving a front on the park and one on the new street leading to the sUtion from Detroit street. A singular coincideace in the election Monday was the tact that on the república u ticket was a Robison and a Pond, and on the democratie ticket was a Robison and a Pond. The demuciatic RobUon is a cousin of the repuolican Robison and the democratie Pond is acoustn of the republfcati Pond. Botii Robisons and both Ponds were elected.
