The miners at Sanger, a few days
ago, became exasperated at the very
ancient butter that was being served
to them each meal ut the boarding
house, and seized the barrel containing
a large quantity of it and blowed it
to smithereens with giant powder.
The trees in that vicinity aro said to be
greascy with what the landlord alleges
to bo butter. This is rather u novel
way of abating a nuisance.
The drivers of the different convey

On his return he had in tow a coin- j

THE PINE CHEEK ROAD.
The case of Union county against
the Pine Creek road contractors, as our
readers arc aware has been in the
courts for sonic time. Recently the de
fendants have been trying to "compro
mise the case, and proposed to Judge
Ooodall to do as much more work on
the road as he might deem reasonable,
providing the suit against them should
then be withdrawn. The judge think
ing this might be as good a way as
any to settle the matter, consented," and
as was stated in our last issue, wont
out on the road with them to lay out
the work he would require to be done.
It seems that they were not willing to
comply with the terms, and a disagree
ment was the result. They all return
ed home and the matter will be fought
out to a finish in the courts.
If this road had been finished as it
should have been, it would have
proved of incalculable benefit to Un
ion county. Unfinished as it is, it has
already been a great benefit, and it is
only a matter of time when it will be
made a broad and substantial highway.
We are in hopes the matter will be
pushed rapidly, and the contractors
or their bondsmen made to complete
the road strictly accoidingto the terms
of the contract.
Push your business, advertise it. Call
your neighbors, acquaintances and
friends, to look in upon your stock by
inviting attention in well worded adver
tisements to what you have for sale.

Dispatches from the recent elections
in the cast indicate that the New York
state democratic ticket has been elect
