Last, Sunday some" party "entered
the waiting room of W, G. Emery's
photograph gallery and stole a lew
pictures, i ne same mgnt a num
ber of choice roses were stolen from
the rose hedge in front of F. L
Miller'B residence. 'Both gentlemen
are righteously indignant, and sav
that if, such creatures are suffering
for either roses or photographs' they
will gladly furnish the same rather
than have them stolen. It seems
that there is no ordinance in the
city charter making it. a mi9sde

is likely that the council will , pass
some such ordinance soon perhaps
at next meting.

who owned the land over which
it was proposed to run tne new

they appealed to the county

in need of. The court saw the
justice of the claim" and gave the
residents to understand that the
county would gladly; provide ma
terial for1 the bridge. ;
i.nis proposition was. auiy ac
cepted, and, as the county court
required that after going to the
expense for material for the con
struction of the bridge, said
bridge be properly 1 built, Mr.
Sebrell and six other residents of
that section have furnished such
bond. ' Mr. Sebrell fixed the bond
with the court while here last
week. w ""-'''.: "c:.' " ; ' '. '
The main "span of the bridge
will be close to ' ioo feet long,
and, counting the approaches,
the structure will be; nearly' 175
feet ia length. A few of the
heavier timbers . are already on
the- grottnd7 for the bridge and
work will commence so soon as
the weather will permit. r t ; is
estimated that the bridge will be
completed by June 15.
