A Card From Mr. Entcnnillc.
The notice published In THE MINER
two weeks since, In which I stated that I
would not be responsible for my wife's
debts, was ordered in the first place under
a misapprehension. It was ordered not
to be published the next day, but owing
to negligence of the Telephone company,
the message was not delivered for over
forty-eight hours after being filed, after
the paper was in the postolfice. My dom
estic affairs are entirely satisfactory to me

from Interfering with matters In which
they have no concern, they will remain
so. D. ENTERMILLE.
