As a chronicle of passing events it be
comes my painful duty to mention an
affair that happened in our little town late
last Saturday evening. A thre.-hhig cro vd
near town finished a job of threshing, and

toxicated, and one of them, Mr. Marion
Angell, came up town to the blacksmith
shop of J. D. Arthurs, and got into a dis

few minutes by Mr. Angell getting his
jaw broke. There is a vry good moral in
this transaction if all would only take
heed, and it is this: never drink any
beer and you will not get your jaw broken.

Another gang ot Chinamen arrived here

be put on and the work will be pushed
through as rapidly as possible. Work on
the road i progressing finely, and It Is
confidently expected that Ihe cars will be
here by the middle of Octolier next.
Tlie great demand tor men and teams
here still continues, and as the Company
intend to build two more warehouses just
below here, work is likely to continue
some time. Many strangers are here
every day, and things are beginning to
take shape lor a rapid growth in the near
future, at least such is the prophecy ot

On Monday forenoon, as Mrs. Geo. F.
SimpiOii,-iccoinpanieil by her oldest son and
another boy from thW city, were driving
toward Tangent, the animal attached lo
the buggy shied or jumped suddenly to
one side of the mad. The suddenness of
ihe movement threw both boys outw of
the huggv. when Mrs. Simpson attempted
to gain pos.-esion of the lines dropped by
her son as he was thrown out, of the vehicle.
As she was reaching to obtain the lines,

pitch Mrs. &impon to tlie ground head

bones were broken, her head and face
were severely contused, and it was some
time before she fully recovered the use of
her f:icuities. The animal, rinding lierself
free of all control, trotted off down the
roa.l a considerable distance and then
stopped, where she was found shortly
afterward by one of the boys and driven
back. It .vas a painful accident, and the
many friends of tlie lady will be pleased
to learn that she is not likely to suffer any
permanent injury from it.
Down In the Dint.
Last Friday a carriage load ot young
people started tor the country in high spir

tance, and made light of the intense heat
and fearful dust that enveloped horses and
carriage like a cloud, until, like a Hash of
light, something gave way and down came
the whole business into the unfathomable
dust. As soon as the team could be quiet

dust, it was found that the king-bolt

been threshing his wheat. There was a
large quantity ot dry straw, and the wheat,
sacked and ready for hauling to the ware

the Judge had taken the matter under ad
visement, ordering the pm-ties to appear
at another day for his decision. In defiance
of this order of the Court. William Henry
Harrison secured the child, and came.,, to
this city, leaving her at the Revere House,
and going into the harvest fields to work.

A CKmmI Sbeep Tale.
If any of our readers recognize a familiar
face in the following, they can laugh as
much as they please, but they must keep
mum : '
; A man in raiher indifferent circumstanc
es, surrounded by a large family, being en- ;
tirely out of meat, had recourse to the
sheepfold of a neighbor, (a wealthy farmer)
tor re'lef. The neighbor, having a large
flock of i-heep, did not perceive he had lost
any until one of tlie finest of the flock, very
rge and fat, was missing, and counting
Ms sheep, he found ho had lret several. '
Unable to account for this extraordinary
iost he resolved, a tew nights after, to
watch. About midnight, he observed a
uncommon disturbance among the sheep,
by tlie su Iden appearance of a man dressed
in iliscmse. Ciirmsitv. as well c in rK
serye tJle coPfluctf the person so as to-
find him out, induced him to be still. Ii

seems, the man was lathe habit ot con-
versing, as it he had been-tlie actual owner
ot the sheep.
Well, Mr. Ram," said the nocturnal
visitant, "1 have come to buy another
sheep ; have yon any more to sell P"
Upon which he replied himself, as iu the
person of the ram :
'Yes, I have sheep to sell.
By this time the owner of the sheep per
ceived him to be one of his neighbors. .
"What will you take lor that fat weth
er savs the purchaser.
Four dollars," says Mr. Ram.
That Is a very high price," says tlie
man '-but, as you are so good as to watt
on me tor the pay, I think 1 will take him.
Well, Mr. Hum." continues tlie honest
sheep buyer, "let us ses how many sheep I
nave Dongni or you. " .
'It I am not mistaken,' savs Sir. It am.
this is the filth."
He then went to cast nn the amount ol
the whole ; and. after giving Mr. Kam a
polite invitation to call on him for the Dav.
and bidding him good night, led the weth
er home, while the owner lay laughing at
the novelty of the scene, as uishiv gratified

A tew nights afterwards, when tie stirt-
posed his neighbor was nearly out of mut

hag under his neck, and placed a piece ot
paper between lus horns, on wbicn he
wrote in l.-'rge letters : "I have come for
my pay I" Under the Hue he footed the
whole amount of the five sheep, exactly as
his ueighlior had done, as before related ;
he then took the ram to bis neighbor's
house, where he tied him near hU door,
and went home.
When the neighbor arose in the morn-
