A potato horse is rather an un-
exhibition in this city. It is a
work of art and Clem Hodes is the
creator in this instance. Clem
nearly always has an attractive
window at his father's grocery
store, but this is thought to be a
trifle better than usual. The horse
is made cf potatoes fastened over a
skeleton of sticks and its ears and
tail are represented by whist brooms.
The animal looks as though it
might be dangerous to ride.

reason, too, that the game being on
their own held, assisted OAU to vic

hope of Albany to defeat our girls

stood that in case the OAC girls
are defeated the tie is to be played

- Uentleman, it behooves you, one
and all, to- cease whipping your
wives. There is a special law
against it and you will be lashed
forty times with a cat-o'-ninea in
the hands of the sheriff if you fail
to heed the warning. Should the
"house" become divided on any
matter, do not allow your wives to
draw you into anything that savors
of "ring tactics." It is wiser to al
low your wives the last word than
to have your nervous system dis
turbed.. . .... ,

Lumber Yard Fired. -
Shortly after 12 o'clock Thurs
day night the fire bell clanged
and our citizens were aroused to
the sense- oi impending danger.
The bell sounded out vigorously,
long and loudly, and firemen and
others responded quickly. It was
soon ascertained that lumber in
the sawmill yard of E. W. Strong
wa on fire. ,
Fire had been set in two differ
ent places in the-yard, and at one
place in the mill. The fire in
the mill was readily extinguished,
as was one of , the fires in the
yard, which latter had , been -set
among a lot of damp green
shingles not far from a shed of
dry lumber. The fire which had
been started in the northwest
corner of the yard was the one
that did the damage.
This was hardwood lumber,
mostly maple and ash, and thou
sands of feet of it was destroyed
despite the efforts of the fire boys
and others who assisted in check
ing the flames.
The fire got so well under
headway that it was difficult to
handle and it was early morning
belore it was extinguished. Mr.
Strong estimates his loss at
$i,ooo. It was what people term
a "close call," but compared
with what it might easily have
been it was a very fortunate escape,
not only for Mr. Strong, but the
town, as a fairly good breeze was
blowing from the north.
The fires were started . while
the night watchman at the mill.
F. A. Pierce, was partaking of
his mid-night lunch. That it
was the work of an incendiary
there is no room ' for doubt.
Moreover, the fires were undoubt
edly set by the same contemptible
creature who fired E. R. Bryson
and E. P. GrefToz's woodsheds at
intervals during the past fall and
wiflter. In proof of this assertion
is the fact that there was a strong
odor of kerosene in the air when
citizens first arrived at the scene
of the conflagration, and the
regulation empty bottles well
scented with kerosene were found
on the scene of the fires. It
behooves everybody to be very
careful and look into the actions
ot any party who may be dis
covered acting suspiciously under
the cover of darkness.
