One of the meanest acts that has ever come to our knowledge occurred last evening at the residence of the writer. Little baby Conley was peacefully sleeping in the baby carriage about - 8 o'clock, when some miserable wretch came along and threw a hand full of pepper in the child's eyes. Naturally the little one screamed in an agony of pain. Several persons ran to his aid and did everything possible to relieve him.
