Hamilton saw "Shore Acres" at St. Louis last week, and wrote a note to Alex. White. He says: "I saw 'Shore Acres' played here last night at the Century opera house, the finest in the city.

The ownership of the famous yellow dog, whose existence is to be a very important matter to the courts, was settled an 'Squire Taylor's court last Thursday. Brown of Sexton brought a replevin action and Hamby of Wesley defended. Both swore to the ownership of the dog, and there must have been two dogs amazingly alike out east, for it was clearly a case of honest mistake on the part of some of the witnesses. A wart, mole, or bullet mark on the dog's shoulder settled the case, and Brown got the dog. Mayor Boyle of Whlttemore did not have such a pleasant time at the West Bend "Old T?nU, 0 » ™.,t,, „„ v" aia I? BARGAIN: That is what the people are looking for these days.
