The ordi- nance, however, had long' ago fallen into innocuous desuetude, when last week occasion arose to resurrect it. A resident of Hig-h street is the owner of a cow which he is keeping in his lot over night. This cow is provided with a. particularly aggravating case of cow-bell. This cow, moreover, from long and continued practice and habit, is an exceedingly early riser. It rises about daybreak every day without the slig-htest cause or provocation. And thus it happened that the neighbors were aroused from their slumbers early evcrv morning- by the jang! clang! jaiig-lang-bang! of the cow- bell's monotonous made them verv irate. All of which Complaints were made to the alderman of the ward, and he spoke to the owner about the matter and asked him to take the bell olf over nig-hts. He. however, could noti see it in precisely that light and said he would see the whole coun- cil in TeSas before he would take that bell off. The alderman then called attention to the aforesaid ordinance. But the owner of the cow was not daunted. He would not take that bell oil for any council or any ordinance. Things looked like v. -for awhile, but the alderman concluded to await de- velopments. And sure, there was that cow in the lot with her bell on as usual, but never a sound did that bell emit. It was as silent as a grave. It was a dumb bell, so to speak. The owner had removed the clapper of ihe bell, but he had kept his word: he would not remove the bell. Now the council is in a qtt.imlary. Can it per- mit it.s ordinances, to de defied in this manner? The ordinance clearlv states the bells he removed over night.

Mr. Timm's death was not unexpected. For weeks rheuuia- .ism in addition to the intense suffer- ng it occasioned, had deprived him of ail power of administering to bis wants. He was as helpless as a little child. But the hands of love eased to .vhatever extent possible the suffering- of the patient. Long the iron frame leld out. But weeks ago it became apparent that life was a matter of a few weeks at the utmost, and yester- day morning death closed in sleep eternal the weary eyes of the sufferer. John Timm was born in the village of Beutin. Mecklinburg, the year 1819, and was therefore sev- enty-six years of age. He came to America in 1364 and immediately set- tled on a farm in the town of Grand Rapids, where, by industry and ality, he accumulated a considerab le portion of this world's goods. He re- nained on the farm until 1SS4, when, ic removed to the city of Grand Rap- els where he has since continuously Mr. Timm leaves five children to nourn his death, all living in either the town or city of Grand Rapids, namely: Fred Timm, T. C. Timm, Mrs. Adolph Panter, Mrs. Henry Burmeister and Henry C. Timm. His wife died five years ago, in 1890. The funeral services will be held to- morrow (Sunday) afternoon. The funeral cortege will move from the at one o'clock, and the services will be held at the Lutheran church on the Four Mile creek at about three o'clock, after which the remains will be laic! to rest in the Lutheran ceme- tery in that vicinity.

Freeman Co., will take his departure for Tomah on this (Saturday) evening, and to-morrow will be united in mar- riage with Miss Carrie Perry, at the suburban home of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Perry, near that city. Mr. and Mrs. Brazeau will return to Grand Rapids on Monday morning, the 17th inst., and will immediately go to housekeeping- in the house recently rebuilt and renovated throughout by Mr. Braxeau, in the second ward of Grand Rapids. Both the groom and bride are well known in the twin cities. Mr. Brazeau has been a resident of Grand Rapids since early boyhood, and has held many positions of trust, always gain- ing and retaining the confidence and esteem of his employers every posi- tion he has filled. The bride is a sisltM'of Mrs. 11. 11. Voss and of Miss ICHa Perry, one of our most efficient school tcacheis. She spent most of last slimmer hero visiting among friends, and taught one of the depart- ments ol our school several weeks as a substitute. Mr. and Mts.
