Wo have Uuv.j fine coal properties ready to furnish Ibii material as soon a.s the market opens. Although tilings have quiet in the coal market buildings and improvements are steadily ad- vancing. Notwithstanding the heavy rains most of the farmers have finish ed seeding and a little sunshine will work wonders with the grain. Yesterday an impromptu race day was started by tv.'o of our citizens getting into an argument over the respective merits of their horses, and ,hefore the afternoon hafl "passed sev- eral horse races and one foot race had heen run, II. liogers ran his bay horse "Dan" against W.

Last night's storm lias sent the creek up to the danger point once more. One pair oi piles has gone out from tho foot bridge near Mr. Ibey's residence and while the span still hangs, it is dangerous to attempt it as the unsupport ed portion may drop at any moment. On Main street the foot bridge is out of business owing to the water cov ering the approach. The family and effects of Mr. Jas. Raniptou were removed from. the house nearest the creek this morn- ing as the water was approaching un- comfortably near. There is no im- mediate danger of the house going down stream unless the force of the current changes. Should the storm continue much longer there may be some losses to we hope for the best.

Dis- BOWLING ALLEYS ON TRAINS OPERATED ON RHINOCEROS New York, June the two-year-old rhinoceros that was im- ported into the Bronx from In- dia about a year ago, underwent an operation for cataract yrsterday. Half a dozen keepers roped him and threw him on a bed of grass and the surgeons got to work. When it came to UK: application of anaesthetics, the opi-r.itors found that Mogul didn't answer to the spraying of the chloroform up his nostrils any more than if it were so much fog. Finally they made .some cornucopias and poured the stuff into him. Even then it took a pound and three quar- ters of chloroform and half a pound of other to down him. That is about three and a half times as much as they have to use on a full grown horse. The operation itself, which was per- formed by Dr. George Van Meter, pro- fessor of optholmology at the New York American Veterinary College of Brooklyn, included the making of a Burlington Officials Propose Give Their Patrons Exercise While Travelling to and wife have re- Store, was in town on Wednesday upon business for the firm.

On account of t'ne absence of Mr. Harris no report of the Trustees' visit for May in company with the chief of the fire brigade and D. S. Beach could be given. The chairman report- ed, however, that suggestions as to fire escapes had boT'rt made by Mr Beach at his visit which the board could consider later.
