MtijT Hamilton Impuovinq. A gen
tleman was iu from Hamilton on last
Monday, and from him a reporter glean
ed the following in regard to that terrible
alfair: Milt Hamilton and Clata Hiuton
had been having trouble for some time
on account of a young lady who was
stopping at Hamilton's. Hinton persisted
in paying his respects to l,er, which wits
quite distasteful to Mr. Hamilton. Ou
the night of the dance at Senator Hamil
ton's, Hinton insulted Milt's wife, and
after the dance broke up, Mr. Hamilton'
asked tho young man to come outside.
Ho rose from where ho was sitting and
answered by thrusting a knife into the
breast of Hamilton, ;md before the victim
had time to avoid it, received another
cut in the arm, laying the flesh open to
the bone from the point of the shoulder
to tiie elbow. The weapon used was a
dirk, although it was not found on Hiu
ton when arrested. At present he is un
der ijfbYiO bonds. , Mr. Hamilton is doing
very well, with chances in favor of re
covery. The Hailhoad Bai.i,. On last Friday
evening was the occasion of the Railroad
Ball, given at the opera house of Garri

charge of the' affair should be congratu
lated on their superior management and
arrangement for this ball, as it is the
universal expression of those present
that this was the greatest success of all
such eiitortaiunients ever given in Hepp
ner. Owing to the number present, it
is impossible to give names of all. Our

there is hardly a lady to be found in our
broad land who, if she does not already
possess a sewing machine, expeots some
day to beoome the owner of one.
But after the mind has been fully
made up to purchase one of these indis
pensable artioles, the question arises as
to what kind of a machine to buy.
It shenld be so simply constructed
that the most inexperienced oan success
fully operate it. The other points main
ly to be considered, and whioh are the
most desirable, are durability, rapidity,
oapacity for work, ease of operation,
regularity of motion, uniformity of ten

the above requirements, and is said to
combine the good points of all sewing
machines, with the addition of many
improvements and labor-saving devices.
The price is no higher thau that of
other machines, and every lady who is
the happy possessor of oue may rest as
sured she has indeed a treasure. See
