Mrs. Blake will be very much missed especially from the First Baptist church of this city. —Talking with Dr. J. erinary surgeon, yesterday, be told us the best plan to follow as to preparing the bit for the mouth of a horse in cold weather is to dip in cold water. The water, at once freezes about the bit and then it can be placed in the mouth In entire safety. It is considerable trouble to take the bridle Into the house to warm 'and some people will not take that trouble. It is entlrely'easy to dip the bit in the water. Many horses' mouths are injured by cold bits. —Thei statistics of the weather report as kept by Albert Powell for December for the last five years taken at about 6 o'clock in the morning are- aa follows: 1887 201-2 degrees, storm - 18 1888 10 2-6 degrees, " - 9 1886 20 6-6 degrees, " - 18 1884 171-2 degrees, " - 18 1883 181-6 degrees, " - • . 10 The lowest temperature for the last month was 16 degrees below, and the highest 89 above and only five mornings below zero.

The speakers without exception commended the project and insisted that there shall be no going back; that the dam would be a blessing to the community and should and must built. The several committees are all actively at work today and never before was there such confidence, •enthusiasm and energy united upon' any single object as that which now j marks the people upon this dam sub-' jeot. The meeting lust night exceded expectation in interest and tangible results. j —The OAZKTTK i» lu receipt of a let- tar from Or. S. W.

Last night officer Shult saw him in Conlon's saloon and then hurried to Deputy Sheriff Drake, wh came up and arrested the young man The two officers started for the cala boose with him; when near Cruse'scor ner he eluded them and started off at a run. Mr. Drake and Mr.Shultz startec in pursuit, but the former got his foo in a hole and fell, straining his leg. He arose and fired his pistol to put other officers on the alert. After an exciting run of two or three blocks, Mr. Shultz when within ten or fifteen feet of Pfun stein, fired his revolver, when the fugitive halted and he was nabbed. The two officers then ^ot him Into the cala- boose all right and put him -into the cage-cell. Two or three hours later when officer Shultz returned to the cal- aboose he discovered that the young man had improved his opportunity by working a bar loose and got out of the cell, and Indeed had got where but one bolt kept him from freedom. The cuffs weie then put upon him and he was placed in a box cell. Mr. Drake speaks in high terms of Mr. Shultz; declaring that but for his jwiftness of foot and courage Pfunsteln would have got away, and but for his vigilance he would have got out of prison. He re- jards officer Shultz as ono of the very sest night watchmen the city has ever iad. Sheriff Hudson, of Clinton, was telephoned for, came over on the 10:28 and left with his prisoner on the itio this afternoon for Clinton. —How a short paragraph may awaken memories that have been laid jack uncalled for years and years, Picking up a day or so ago a paper published in the town of our birth, we saw record of the death of an old school and playmate. It told in few words his illness, his death, his age, his virtues. That was all; but it seems to us that in the hour or so that we mediated in sadness over the tidings that ;wice a thousand pages would not be sufficient to record the many scenes and Incidents in which the deceased and the writer figured together in child and boy and young manhood. More than thirty years were uplifted all in a trice and we saw him a brown- haired.vrosy-ctieeked boy trudging to school books in hand. And there were fishing and hunting parties, and nut fathering and fruit picking, and par- ies, and boating and buggy rides, ichool scenes and school-ground games until the boy was cast aside and manly ares began. And then there crowded n the shifting, wild, dangerous scenes f war, ending in his goiifjp-pne way and we another; and then the meeting after the battles were over, somewhat mbittered because of differences, yet rowing Into warmer relations as time touched the scare with his healing, .little more than a year ago we saw im,again and for an hour or two old each the other of the scenes we ad passed through in the fifteen years we had lived far apart. He was manly ooking, industrious, progressive, had a if e and eight children, and was near- y forty. Death took him first, and all tiat is left are the memories of other ays, so many and yet so sad, because hey were but are not, and mourn as we may, the things that have been anuot be again, and the forms we ave known and the faces we have oved, once they are led from sight and arth by remorseless death will be een.only in 'such changed conditions as will preclude the possibility of re- umption of old relations. Only a brief aragraph that nine In ten of the read- rs read indifferently as they read the 36 market reports or the news from Europe; but that paragraph brought ack to us scenes not called up since heir enactment and made us again ass through all the stages of child- ood, boyhood, youthhood and man- ood, and the refrain to the stanza of ach memory was the sad and heart- leeding one "of, That is what you were nd what he was, but never again will iey be. As we write fresher memo- ies force themselves and we can scarce- avold recording this and that scene nder tha delusion that that which is o real to us and so exciting because f its startling realism must be of in- .erest to others, also.

The genesis of voluntary attention t» o be found In Its utility.
