Brokk Out ok Jail.
The attention of the city dads
has on several occasions lceu called
to the insecure condition of both
the houses of detention for wrong
doers. The calaboos on River
street has been broken open several
times and criminals have gone free
and jumped the town because the
building was not strong enough to
Tctaiu them. On Sunday night
this act was again repeated. The
marshal arrested a tough character
who got off the night train, locked
him up to appear before the Re
corder in the roorriiug, and when
morning came the bird had flown
and a big hole in the rear of the
jail showed where he had kicked
the boards off and taken wing,

A Busy Music Box.
Brchaut & Morton of the New
Era drug store have recently
bought a large music box and with
it fifty odd tunes and songs, .Each
of their many mends linve some
expressed preference for a certain
number, and as they are quite
often happening around and asking
to hear their favorite, it keeps the
music box grinding from early
dawn till late at night. "Music
hath charms to soothe the savage,
etc., and if reports be true there are
several people in that neighbor
hood that are mighty near savage
now and are making threats to im
port an Italian hand organ as a
Flu it Alaum Saturday
An alarm was rung in last Satur
day forenoon for a supposed fire iu
the Cottage Grove Hotel. A large
volume of smoke was issuing from
the apex of the rdof near the chim
ney. The fire department was soon
on the spot, but it was practically
useless as there was not sufficient
water in the pipes to reach the
awning of the porch. One quick
witted fireman soon evolved a
scheme for saving the building.
He lit a caudle, climbed into the
attic from an inside trap, sought
out the defective flue and salted it,
and presto, the fire was out. The
whole town was out too.
