Its cozy dwellings its Well kept lawns and gardens its Road streets and abundance of refreshing Shade impart an irresistible Charm. The citizens Are aware that they have a Beautiful Borough hut there Are still a few things which they covet. Riverside is situated in close proximity to the prosperous town of Danville Ami might enjoy the luxury of electric Light.

Or Silty it is surprising to what extent persons accredited with being humane and Law abiding fall into habits of neglect in dealing with dumb brutes which amounts to positive cruelty. One would think that such persons Are unaware of the existence of a society for the prevention of cruelty to animals judging by the risks they take. There is scarcely a Day but the sensibilities of people Are pained by the spectacle of a horse tied along the Street for hours at a time hungry and in need of water if not driven nearly to distraction by the flies. This much in town in driving into the country a person is fortunate indeed if he does not meet a lame horse or one driven with sore shoulders or otherwise afflicted which reveals with every step a Degroe of misery that must make the life of the brute a Burden. These instances of cruelty it is Truu Are now and then due to the brutal instincts of the Driver but it is Only just to state that in seven cases out of ten they Are to be attributed to Mere thoughtlessness the owner perhaps having never reflected upon the dumb brutes in his service As creatures of feeling like himself but rather As pieces of machinery to to driven and worked up to thu very limit of their endurance. A Case in Point occurred in this City yesterday. Shortly after noon the attention of chief of police Mincemoyer was called to a three Livorse team which according to the stories told had been standing on water Street since Early in the morning six of clock according to some. Two of the horses bore the appearance of hard usage being very thin and Bony with badly abraded shoulders. The horses had been driven some five Miles in from the country. They were badly in need of both feed and water and in their unrest had pawed deep holes into the ground. The spectacle was not a pleasant one to gaze upon and As hour after hour passed and the Driver did not put in an appearance thu residents in the Vicinity became very indignant. Just before the officer arrived the owner materialized. The latter did not seem to think he had committed any great fault. He did not deny that Tiu team had stood Oil the spot since morning hut said that lit himself had not As yet had anything to eat. It was thu Drivers thoughtlessness that was largely responsible for the plight of the poor horses. Used to hard work and deprivation himself lie imposed the same conditions on the dumb brutes and took no further thought. He Union a Wei Aioli vials a we a a a re get his horses fed before driving Home. What Many people need evidently is to lie educated up to a finer regard for thu Comfort of dumb animals. Education with its refining influence is doing a great Deal in this direction. It is evident however that there Are Many who have the care of animals in their charge who will bestow the proper treatment upon them Only by compulsion and that an arrest now and Tii ii is necessary to serve As an example. Grand army Encampment. Goodrich Post no. 22, g. A. R., has unanimously decided to hold an Encampment at Dewitt spark next Mouth.

At tin next meeting of the Post a Date will be decided upon committees will he appointed and the work of arranging for the Encampment will be started. A Wise improvement made.
