Tit New Council. '
On last Tuesday evening at the
regular and appointed time thio City
Council met as usual.. - After attend
ing to the regular routine of business,
tho newly elected city ofllcers were
sworn in, each taking tho oath neces
sary to qualify him to properly dis
charge tho duties of his office, after
which the old officors gladly stepped
back and turned over everything to
tho new charge with their best wish
os. The old council has certainly
done Well this year, and have tried to
do more, hut failed only becauao the
ordinances would not reach deep
enough. In tho words of old wo
would say, "Well done, thou good and
faithful servant, como up higher." It
is to be hoped that the .new officers
will push things as they havo been
pushed, and wo believe they will.
The President appointed all the new
committees fur the hew year, which
wag about, all the business transacted I
by thb , new council. After the coun
cil adjourned the old members invit
ed the new officers and their wives
and a few of their friends to tho St.

An Awful Death.
The coroner's jury Friday returned
their findings in the case of the dead
body found a few days ago lying near
the narrow gauge railway truck about
a mile north of Aumsville. Coroner
Byland being dead, the inquest was
conducted by Henry Keeue, juslico ot
the peace. After hearing the testimony
of the witnesses and viewing the re
mains tliey returned a verdict declar
ing the body to be that of a man per
haps sixty yesrs of age and to them
unknown, there having been nothing
by which to establish identity. They
thought It was the body of a tramp and
that he had met death while sleeping
near his camp fire. During the night
a wind arose, and a large limb of the
tree under which he was lying was
blown to tho ground. Its butt end
struck Tjain squarely on the head,
mashing it as flat as a board and
spreading it over considerable space.
The fall of the tree scattered the fire,
which communicated to tho derd
man's biauketand then to his cloth
ing, and the leaves that formed his
bed. When the body was discovered
it was destitute of clothing and had
the appearance of being well roasted.
The verdict returned to the county
clerk was 'in accordance with these
facts. From the appearance of the
remains the jury concluded that the
man had been dead perhaps a week or
ten days. The body, aside from being
mashed and burned, was in a terrible
condition and the sight was one not
soon to be forgotten. Statesman,
Kin Him nil Let Him Go.
The story goes that a certain society
yourig man, noted for his handsome
bparing and winning voice, accompa
nied a young lady to her home and, as
all true lovers do, lingered yet a little
while at the gate to have a lover's tetc-a-teto
with his fair companion. The
Bight was beautiful, no one near to
Intrude, and above all. he loved! Why
suouldu't she kiss him? With true
maidenly modesty she refused. He
implored. She still withheld from him
that which would fill his cup of happi
ness. The request was repeated several
times, and so engrossed did the young
man become In wooing that he failed
to notice the approach of the paternal
step. The old gentleman, who had
been there himself and did not like to
intrude on the happiness of the young
couple, quietly stepping behind a con
venient rosebush, waited, thinking the
young man would soon leave. In this
he was mistaken. The lover tarried
over the request until the patience of
the old gentleman was exhausted. A
voice the couple well knew aroused
them from their happiness iu a tone of
impatient angor by saying: "Daugh
ter, kiss the - fonl and let him go
home!" It is reported that the young
man only hit the ground in hiu places
