Little Myrtle Gibson did not look like
the same child after going through the
cleaning and dressing process yesterday,
and she was so pleased with the differ
ence and with her newly-found bene
factor that she quite forgot her. mother
and followed Mr. Gardner about the
streets with great devotion. She is a
roguish little elf, though, and as Mr.
Gardner says, is as "sharp as lightning.",
Before leaving he had a talk with the
mother. Her eyes were fastened to the
ground during the interview and on no
account would she look him in the face.
He tried to pursuade her to abandon her
mode of living and try to make some
thing of herself, but got feeble encour
agement. Asked what she would do.
she said she would not be in town
twenty-four hours after her child left,
and in answer to a question If she did
not think it best for the child to go, she
said:' "If I did not think so, I would
cut its throat." Whether the remark
was from obstinacy or an admission that
she had sot been giving the child its due
is not known.

THE FRUIT OUTLOOK.
A Variety cf Opinions from Several
County Fruit Growers.
Has the late cold spell injured the
fruit? Following are a variety of opin
ions from several leading fruit raisers,
by which it would appear that it is a
question of location. We think how
ever, that those whose views have a
violet tinge are more frightened than
injured. Of course, at this time, all are
apprehensive, but when blossoming
time comes there is almost always a
beautiful display of the pink flowers
which adorn the peach tree. Then
follows a small scare about frost, and
after that the treea ' generally have a
vigorous setting of fruit, and the worry
has been thrown away, with no chance
Mr. Bolton of 15-Mile says the fruit in
that section is not injured by the cold
spell and unless there should be late
frosts the fruit crop will be good.
Dr. Sanders this morning brought in a
few branches cut from his fruit trees.
A part of the peach' buds have been
killed, principally the Early Crawfords.
Mr. Sanders' trees were more forward
than any in the neighborhood near him.
Mr. T. M. Denton of Mill creek says
that the fruit is not injured in his
Mr. E. Schanno says that he has
heard few reports tf loss. Mr. Coats
worth of' lower 3-Mile says his peach
crop will be an almost total failure. He
has not examined the cherrv trees. '
Mr. F. A. Seufert says the fruit is all
right in his neighborhood. He says that
in the fall the ground Should be plowed
close up to the tree to cutoff all the
small roots near the surface, while the
deeper . roots are not affected by every
temporary little warm spell that comes,
to f start the sap running and make the
buds swell prematurely.

If anyone is foolish enough to imagine
that our country is in peril he should go
to Armory hall of a Wednesday night
and observe the militia practicing at
their weekly drill. -There he will see as
fine a company of soldier, boys as bis
eyes ever rested upon, and the perfect
accord in which they perform military
maneuvers argues much for the invinci
ble qualities of trained troops, compared
to the hit and miss monkey-shines of a
disorganized mob. If the volley they
fire, when in line, was of lead instead of
air, it would mow down the enemy like
grain before the sickle, and the rapidity
and accuracy - with which they change
position would bewilder a foe less up to
snuff so" badly he would not know
whether he was afoot or horseback.
The company, though .recently reor
ganized, is a credit to the state, and is
the largest in the regiment, numbering
57 men. Every member takes an actvie
interest and seldom misses being present
drill night. It is very satisfactory to
state these facts, for only a short time
ago the small remnant of the old com
pany became . discouraged and were in
despair of ever being again reorganized
and placed upon' a prosperous footing.
The brilliant results achieved at their
late ball shows aa well the earnest effort
of the men aa the appreciation of the
public, and last night Capt. Chrisman
embraced the opportunity to thank
several by name who had been active in
the work of making of the ball so grand
a success. The following are the officers :
Capt. Levi C. Chrisman. .
.. First Lieut. Malcolm Jameson. '
Second Lieut. J. R. McAvoy.
Sergeanta D. H. Roberts, Al. Reese,
A.A. Urquhart, H. H. Campbell, Ed.
Riggs and T. J. Sullivan.
. Corporals Jess Allen, Matt Shoren,
Gus Bar tell and D. Lemerson.
When the weather gets pleasanter the
company will drill in the open air. The
hall, though a large one, does not per
mit of executing many fine movements,
like the skirmish drill, for instance,
where the men must be a distance of
five feet apart.
The session is nearly ended as far as
jury trials are concerned. The jury in
the case of Martha Perkins vs A. Wil
son decided for plaintiff.
This morning the case of Banker vs.
Willig was taken up. The defendant
gave his wife a promissory note for $100.
This she negotiated to Mr. Banker, and
now Willig denies any consideration for
the note. Mrs. Willig, now Mrs. Cohen
of Portland, is a witness on the case,
and with her little girl, ia present at the
trial. The defense tried to impeach her
testimony by proving that she was un
true', to Willig, but this was not clearly
Mrs. Julia A. Blossum was granted a
divorce yesterday, after a hearing of the
testimpny. Blossum did not appear.
