Fire Breaks Out, Destroying the Upper •Story of the Uullcl!ii e . . Fire broke out in the barn at the residence of H. S. Street Sunday night at about 11:15 o'clock and before it could be conquered, the entire upper story was ruined. The blaze was first discovered in the south end of the hay mow. Frank Walzer, who happened to' be passing at the time, woke up the neighbors and got the horse out of, the burning barn. The Fire Department was soon on hand and good work was done. In the hay mow there was about a half ton of hay, which was burned. Dr. M. J. Hill's house was scorched, but no serious damage was done to it. The first thing Dr. Hill did was to let his ponies out of his barn. They were found this morning on Wilkinson's lawn, badly spattered with some of the surplus mud . from our lovely streets, ,'• ABOUT FRANK R. PECK. Bow lie Wax Thought of by LI Is Frleiula la Clinton.

JAMES ROSS IS SURPRISED. Hli 1'rleucla Help Him Celebrate Ilia Thlr- ty-aeveuth l»lvltulu} r . James Boss.Jthe fine wood-worker, celebrated his thirty-ueventh birthday at his home, Twelfth street ind Second avenue, Saturday night. The affair was arranged by about a dozen 1 , of the neighbors and was altogether enjoyable. Cards dnd crockluole furnished the evening's am'usemeats and dainty refreshments wera served. Mr, Ross will always remember tbt) occasion; eo REGARDING WATER TROUC5HS. rilhpr Citizen Think*The «d In thin Townghlp. EDITOR STANDARD—I saw In your paper an article about water troughs on the public highways. "Citizen" does not go Into the merits of the subject in & thorough manner. In the first place, he does not count the expense. The water rente that would have to be. paid for the five roads would amount to 8125 a year; then, In addition, the cost of troughs, piping and repairs—for malicious persons do frequently injure such property—would bring the expense up to the neighborhood of $200, which would build or repair a pretty good section of road. Then, water troughs that are constructed for country use are a constant menace to the health of our horses. The water gets stagnant in them, and if a horse with the distemper, or glan- ders,or other contagious disease.drinke from them, it is very liable to spread the disease to other animals. ;:A. borae ,trough,:to:be constructed right, should have running water all of the time to remove the slime of impurities from the surface. To maintain such troughs in the country would be too expensive. It is also to be considered that in the city, convenient to all roads—except the 'Hoover road—there are -maintained by the city, water troughs with an overflow such as are desired, and also that the distance from the city to the outer limits of the township is but a short drive, and it is no hardship to teams coming to town to wait until they reach the city troughs. Troughs are not needed within five miles of town and our Sterling farmers are not of the crusty kind that would refuse a drink of water for a thirsty horse and set the dogs on your heels, to boot. ANOTHER CITIZEN. ELEPHANT. Dixon liuslnfBS IMoii'n (jtono Crunher tlio CniiBO of Ulscussloii. Dixon Sun: The question that is now seriously vexing tha Busine&a Men's ABSociatlorj, Is how'lo dispose of the stone crusher which they possess. This crusher was purchased July il, 1800, in the name of the Asaocl.llou and was •pa-id for with'money subscribed by the citizens of Dixon. It'was procured for the purpose of inaugurating permanent roads In this county. For this end it proved very successful, but as all the roads are now built by contract, there longer any real need for It by the Association. . . At the last meeting It was proposed by.apme. to give It to the city, and it was very strongly urged tbat Dixon purchase a- quarry r where it- could- be pelrmaDientlylocited and. where crushed stone could be constantly 'kept for repairing streets. This proposition met with "strenuous opposition, howi ever, and unally a ^cpj3amUjee_wa3_apr_ pointed consisting of M. Maloney, J.F. Palmer, J. C. Ayer?, Dr. D. H. Law and Max. Bosenthal, to investigate and report on the matter at the meeting April 5. The crusher cost 81,584.00. ON ACCOUNT OF A WOLF SCALP. It Was From a Fine Animal And Now F. J. Kennedy la In Jail. F. J. Kennedy delivered a wolf to County Clerk Bowley, making oath that he had "captured and killed said wolf in Boone county within the last sixty days," says the Dixon Sun, and was paid a bounty of.SlO. Today Kennedy languishes In the county jail. Information to the effect that Kennedy did not capture the wolf was obtained and the Supervisors instructed the County Clerk to swear out a war- rantior his arrest, A deputy sheriff served the warrant nnd placed the culprit behind the bars,' It is said that Kennedy bought the wolf for S5 from a man who had kept it in captivity for several months, and if- the charge is is likel y to go hard with him. JOHN.: KADEL TO PLAY ALTO. A Capable Muu to Handle HU Importaut Instrument. John- Kade.1, who nas played an E fiat cornet in the Keystone Band for many years, has changed his instrument and will in future play an alto as a soloist. Mr. Kadel is a finished musician, the father of the band, and the most popular man in the organization. Advancing years have caused him to make the change, as the work with the latter Instrument will not be so arduous, while it requires fully as much ability, as the former. Owen Williams is the latest acquisition of the band; he will manipulate the bass drum. Measures are being taken to put, the organization in first class condition for the coming season.
