The most pretentious event of the very near future is the effort that the South Side Choral union is making to properly present the Biblical story of "Esther," which will be essayed on November November 14, 15 and 16, in the parish house, on Hickory street. Weekly rehearsals rehearsals are being held and the cantata cantata will be rendered with great care.

The alderman had sent his constable into a neighboring ward with a warrant warrant charging a married man with disorderly disorderly conduct, assault and battery, and felonious wounding. The man's wife was the prosecutrix, having appeared appeared before the. alderman earlier in the day with a tale of woe that resulted resulted in the issue of the document that would, if served, make the man the defendant defendant in a criminal prosecution. But it was not to be. The woman experienced experienced a change of heart. The officer of the law, with the warrant, warrant, called at the house between 9 and 10 p. m. The woman came to the door.
