boys in the regiment commenced yelling at the top of their voices but there was not as much enthusiasm displayed as there would have on day The boys thought it a hoax coming on April Day It was certainly a fooling the boy a got but it happened to be -in the right way this time In the evening the band got out and paraded up one street and down an- other until they had gone through the whole

double room for his stock of general merchandise He has since his arrival here been to the front in anything he conceived to be to the interest of Hudson and is now serving his third term on the town council No business man in town is better known no one has larger patronage than him and he should have heen included in the up by all means That these two of our most prominent business men should have been missed seems a studied slight Since writing the above we are told S L Wilson's restaurant business was also missed Possibly it was thought Mr Wilson was too well known to need a notice on an inside page of an out of town daily Or possibly these three folks wouldn't breed properly 29 1892 with Emma sides the bereaved surviving relatives are Knight wife Be- the Board of Trade though of course they do not doubt that he heard the noise as described They say however that tin roofs are very apt to cause commotions and if a man is nervously inclined the rolling of pebbles over the roof

one night recently ho frightened a birn from the tin roof of ness house Then ho thought lie had discovered the culprit Tho next night lie crawled up to the roof and listened Pretty soon tho bird put
