W. Mounts i? now in Chicago end waa seen there by a Sterling party a few days ago, and related that he had been very unfortunate in the Duluth fire..loaing everything but his children. He was In Chicago looking up a location. —A croquet player writes asking if it Is permissible, when two balls are lodged against a fence, for the player whose turn it !• to play, to move his ball away from the fence to knock it, and leave the other there, this giving him a chance to make an arch ? A cro- ' quet player consulted on the subject iiya. No. —A m<in named Adam Ridle, while in a rather boozy condition, got on Con- .ductor Parlow's east bound passenger at th« €. & N. W.depoUhis afternoon, and attempted to run the train, it is supposed. The conductor put him off near Locust Street and Ridle began throwing stones at Parlow.

If our Dan gets through this time with an unsullied character, uninjured anatomy and unbllalered conscience he will be entitled to a crown—20 shillings. . —Observers In many of the cities blessed with shade trees have noticed that those trees near electric lights have been blighted by '.something, and for the lack of some nore apparent cause, the trouble is ascribed to the electric lights. Arboriculturists say that the trees need darkness as much M men need sleep. There seems to be some reason in supposing that the nearness of the electric lights is the cause of the drooping of the trees, for similar trees, not exposed to any other illumination than that of the sun, have cot been affected in any way, and are bright and strong. —Dixon Telegraph: A citizen of.the eaat end of the county has become tired of matrimony; strange as it may appear to those who have tasted of its joys. He will have no more of it. H e intends no longer to monkey with matrimony. Yesterday he dropped into the county cjerk's office and marching up to Deputy Arvine Hyde demanded A divorce. The clerk suggested that he •ngage a lawyer. "Didn't you give me the marriage license; why can't you give me a divorce ?" was the reply. If there are any extra divorces scattered about the court house uncalled for this man should have one right now —The new brick sidewalk on the north of Dr. J. P. Anthony's office is completed. It is much lower than the walk formerly there was, and much nearer grade. The plank walk on the east side of the office is about two feet above the new walk, and is connected with it by a eonveuieat step. There has been some slight complaint that the new walk ia not at exact grade, and thatitiflso far above the city hall walks as to not look well. Some parties kavo blamed the c^tj engineer for teat. Dr. J. P. Anthony informed a re* porter that bis walk was built a few Inches above grade by permission of members of the streets and alleys committee, so that there would not be such a fall from the high walk on the east side of the building to the new walk. —Milan News: The Hennepin canal surveyors under command of Chief JLiijenerantz, have been over at Sand ' ear's Landing.

Ho then shows how tho apparent discrepancies might eiht in the piyniant of coupons which are not always presented when due. In conclusion ho says: "If I abandon my business here I will losa the result of sir months' struggle. Thi day the papers «r« signed releasing m9 from the trait? of eity in this country nnd yonrisr women ont of ems'loymenl desiring to earn money in an honorable and useful par- suit will do well to givfit attention. ifil\ j s.;.' >' 5 others I will sail for I^uisiani. f "uold myself solely and individually responsible for every art of tho office, and no person should for an instant bs permitted to boar a shadow of criticism on its account." The MnJ«r Not Surprised. Attorney General Rogers being inter- riewed, irtid he did not think that Maj. Burke was surprised by tho disclosures. When the affairs of his offies were examined by a legislative committee, and his books r. 1 ported to bi correct, Maj. Burke naturally felt relieved. He mnst havs known, how ever, that the matter would not end there, but that the dofalcntion in his ofBoe must eventually become known. He further stated that a state warrant, which had been paid long ago, was recently presented for payment again, and it was found that Burke hod himself given the warrant to a bank as collateral for a loan. One of thn Crooked Tr»n«actlon», Th' attorney general further stfited that he had information fiat during Maj. Bnrke's occupancy of the treasurer's offlci an insurance company had deposited a number of state bonds for the security of local policy holders, as required by law. Shortly after Mr. Pipes became treasurer this company, desiring to go ont of business, applied for tho roturu of their bondt Mr. Pipes took from the vaults tha package of bonds credited to the company, but the officers of the latter refusid to rec?ivo it, claiming that it did not contain tha bonds which they had deposited.._Hio_bpnds deposited were ot the denomination of $1,003,whileThose returned were $100 bonds. Tliero was som3 differ- once in tho value of the bonds, and the company wanti-d its own securities. The mittor was called to the attention of Maj. Burke, aiul he made good tho . difference by givitig_ his chpfk f or f 17« :~~" 7 - : " ; " -'' - : '~ -'Thin Will Wn Hiiril to ItZpUln. Judge W. P. Stanslwrry, who was for some time engaged with ei-Troafiurer Burke in a business capacity, makes a statement showing that some years ago he negotiated for Maj. Burke, nt-diffcront times,- loans amounting to thousands of dollars, always depositi-ig as collateral state bonds handed to him by Maj. Burke for that purpose. In the first transactions, made in 1884 and 1885, the numbers of tho bonds wore kept Comparing them with the numbers now published by Treasurer Pipes as fraudulent, he finds that among the bonds handled by him there were nearly $20,000 fraudulent After the first few transactions he did not keep the numbs™, because Burke told him it was not .necessary, as he (Burke) had them. To many of these bonds overdue coupons were attached. "A few loans of small amounts were made by sortia of the brokers and in two or three instances by cotton firms of the city. The transactions with tl.s bimks wero with the heads of the institutions. The bonds were iu every instance accepted without question, no word beins uttered to excite suspicion that they were not regularly issued and valid obligations of the state. As such I issnod them, and I had no doubt of their validity until the recent disclosures." Mr. Stansbsrry'g statement shows that Treasurer Burke as for back as 1H84 was using the bonds then in his keeping as state treasurer as -collateral in borrowing money for his own use.
