He tapped lightly upon Bis neighbor s front door whose name might be Smith or James and who had departed hi6 Home at an Early hour in the morning to open his store on Indiana Avenue. lightly Wilson James called to the wife of the grocer to admit him. Mrs. Smith James considering it rather Early for new year s Calif politely declined receiving him. Not a Litfield l e asked if the Back door was unlocked a d without further Cen Mony passed to the Back door and finding it locked attempted to Force an Entrance but guilty conscience which needs no accuser scared the vile wretch away. In the evening this would be new year a Ler Calud again and finding the Madame in tha Kitchen kindling a fire wherewith to prepare sup per for her spouse he attempted unwarrantable liberties alarming her Little girl to such an extent that her screams could be distinctly heard by Ibe neighbors. The lady threatened the brute with a Large knife with which she was preparing kindling and drove Nim from the House.

Tis said by some who saw the scamp get his deserts that he was knocked into barrels with one blow and with the other hand knocked out the dose being repeated a number of times until Wilson James really thought his time had come and not being prepared to give an account of the deeds done in the body cried lustily for Quot mercy Quot Quot murder Quot Etc Smith s Benevolence would not allow More and at the request of the whining cur permitted him to return and gather up the fragments of his dinner bucket contents and hat. We next hear of him in the care of a surgeon and last seeking Justice in the Law which he found in causing Smith to disburse $25 from his Plethoria Wallet where there is sufficient left to repeat the prescription As soon As he is out of the care of the surgeon. Here is a question for Kate. Who in this instance should the Law punish must the Sanctity of our Homes be threatened and he who does ask for Justice be answer do by the lash wanted a tenant. A courageous family who dares an army of bed bugs pity Mically fat Lei Nigist Vlf rofl the to Duce ments Are of ered. Enquire of Joe effans Trancek.

As we Are not acquainted with his Success above Fishback s Tannery we will leave those who know no More than ourselves to guess at the profit and loss. We can Only say that the Palace is closely packed with a Dusky throng who make the night hideous and the daytime startling with obscenity and profanity in Short the most Complete nuisance it has Ever been our misfortune to see. The commission ers refused to License the place and we feel that they at least have a redeeming transaction to record in the events of the old not k burglar what it it or.

The Kitten died from the effects of this brutal treatment and Lillile Lulu is nearly heart broken. The probability is that this Brave and commendable act was but one of a series which these Hoble Young men Are performing. They have doubtless waylaid Many a three year old child and robbed it of its stick of Candy and who could guess How Many legs and wings of flies they could show if Thoy had been preserved As evidence of their High and Manly summer employment.

Evidently something of a serious nature was brewing. Realizing the necessity of taking some precautionary measures he obtained the services of a special detective armed to the Teeth and set about trying to unravel the mystery but their efforts up to new year s morning were fruitless. The trouble culminated at that time. His help with much sternness and unanimity declared then and there that be Spratt in consequence of his genial disposition and excellent qualities of head and heart must be severely caned. It was a Beauty. One of Bingham s bust costing $50. Everybody shed sobs and was Happy. Later in the Day seemingly to stir up further feeling the penitent persecutors presented or.

There should be no Chicago sufi Erer made his appearance in this introduced City and claimed Aid for himself and wife from from the Chicago Relief committee. Winded speeches we do think someone should have proposed the health of the worthy Host of the Mason House who seems determined to a needless meddling with a Corpse but it frequently is the Case that a body seemingly dead fit ill retains a spark of existence that is capable by proper attention of being Revivi fied and nurtured into full and Complete life.

Of Tail soup. There was fun alive at the leather store of Dan Yandes on new year s Day. He had advertised to keep open store to be assisted by j.

It is said that interference by relatives caused his lady love to turn the cold shoulder to him she having before plighted unto him her Maiden troth the would be suicide is reported As a very Aniable Young Man. He should take Consolation from the old adage Quot there s j just As Good fish in the sea As Ever were caught Quot and rest assured the Young lady is not worthy of him if she lightly give him up. A correspondent informs us that a stranger in our City on new year s Day made a wage Tjit he could make As Many Calls As any other gentleman.

Brown of this City Las been appointed chief chemist of the Depa to Mentor agriculture at Washington and the state horticultural society have pronounced him a gentleman a Christian and a scholar. If the professor is not perfectly Happy we would like to know the reason Why. In this appointment we have no doubt the department honoured itself As Well As the professor and the City. It is reported that last thursday evening the Rev. Snyder of Trinity m. E. Church just As the meeting was being dismissed collared a Young Man and led him Back to the seat he had occupied and pointed out to him a Pool of tobacco juice he had deposited on the floor.
