Two circumstances tended to make
tl'.e progress of the work much more
rapid for the two preceding weeks
than for some time before. One waa
that the excavation work vras in soft
crumbling clay, instead of heavy rock.
The other waa that the freezing
weather of that period had been much
more favorable to the work than tie
rainy weather preceding. About 1200
care of dirt per week had been movd
during that time, aa against a maxi
mum of 700 a week before.
The soft clay In which they have
been working lately clogged up the
shovel, so. that It did Dot readily fc-a
Great quantities -of baled
straw had been used, to sprinkle in

TIN PAN ORCHESTRA
A musical feature of the Williams
Green wedding, which was not down
on the original program, was pulled
offby a company of boys, about si
dozen in number, and from -six to
fourteen in age, who organized a til
pan orchestra, and made life a burden
to the. bridal pair,, and to everybody
e'se for two or three' blocks around,
for. about an hour Monday evening.
When accosted by a resident of tha
neighborhood, during the rendering of
the third number of the series, one of
tl'?m docared that Mr. Williams was
too stingy to trrat, and so they had to
kep up th? serenade until he did.
Mr. Williams' version of the matter
Is that w!:.?n 'he third demand waa
mad'e he "became suspicious that ba
was treating the same bunch of boys
ovr and ever; that they retired, re
organized and made a new demand
uuder a new leader; and he refused
to be "worked" any longer. j.
If an Involuntary auditor, . without
sufficient musical education to quali
fy as an art critic, might presume
to offer a criticism on the perform
ance, It would be this: that there waa
