ut I'nisley had kept a record of the bill
according to the (sistal laws regarding
money of this character. Then upon
searching his room Marshal Whorton
found in a vest belonging to Oglesby,
w raped in a clipping from The Ex
aminer (the article of the previous week
regarding the "llold, ISad Uoad Agent")
the sum of 'JO cents in postage stamps.
When confronted with this evidence by
Whorton, the accused began .to weaken,
and finally told the ollicer where to find
a part of the mail that was taken. The
sheriff and marshal accompanied by C.
A. llrahch went to the place indicated
by Oglesby, on the mountain, to the left
of the road traveling north, and just
north of Mr. liianrh's wood camp,
and after a prolonged search failed to dis
cover the hidden mail. After re
turning to town, and a second interview
with Oglesby, the two ollicer started
again next day, mid went to the spot at
once, theie discovering the mail secreted
under a log in a thicket of brush 100
yards from the main road. The mail
found was mostly comprised of letters
and puckage from Silver Lake, and was
at once turned over to Postmaster Wil
cox. On Sunduy following the officers
again interviewed Oglesby and told hint
they were going to make a search for the
mail, (the missing mail from Paisley
and asked him for instructions where to
make the search. The prisoner inform-
ed them that it would le no use to make
weakness, and to have a wholesome
dread of vengeance if they surrender.
The proclamation is approved by the
party at home that favors concilatory
terms to the Boers as a step in the right
direction. Queen Victoria, it is said,
has approved the proposal to institute a
new order of Knighthood, to reward offi
cers who have served in South Africa.
On the 20th ult. the Boers iu consider
able numbers, it is said, were making a
movement westward. They had 150
wagons. It is believed they were trek
king to Damaralund, although the Boers
themselves denied any such intention.

Report of DeWet'u Capture.
A dispatch from London, under date
of the 28th ult., says that persistent re
ports are in circulation there and on the
continent that General DeWet has
been captured. The British Chartered

accustomed to place implicit confidence.
The English war office, however, is with

New Pine Creek People
Have a Merry Time.
Cannon Hall Filled With Happy Peo
ple Who Listen to Appropriate
Exercises by Children.
Pine Creek probably had the most in
teresting time of any of iu neighboring
communities. The Christmas tree was
in the Cannon Hall on Christmas eve.
The crowd 'oegsn to gather quite early,
and by 7 o'clock the building was packed
and all seemed anxious for the exercises
to begin. There was hardly standing
room so great was the crowd, but much
credit is due them for the good order
which prevailed, not only during the ex
ercises, but, while the presents
were being distributed. When we think
of the program being tw o hours in length
and another two hours for the tree,
while the larger ptrt of the crowd waa
standing we feel very thankful for the
excellent order. It has never been our
pleasure to witness such good order at
such a place before.
At 7 o'clock the house was called to
order, and the exercises opened with a
song by the choir, followed by prayer by
Kev. Foster. The program which fol
lowed w as, to say the least, excellent
pnd the Committee cn Program surely
is deserving of much credit. Most of
the program was given by the Kelley
i Creek school, with Mr. Dexter Amick as
teacher. It was one of the best, con
sisting of song, dialogues and recita
tions. Every part was well acted, and,
while there are some w ho deserve special
mention, it would be doing others an
tnjutice since all acted their respective
parts so well.
Several of the dialogues met with
loud applause, but when "The Lost
Dog" was played it took so well that it
was ?Hke.l to be p!ve i over, and waa
even more laughable the second time.
The "Chinaman" as personated by Jay
I'ammersley was very good.
Following is the program :

After the entertainment the tree waa
uncovered and it "fairly groaned" un
der its burden of lovely presents. It
w as nicely trimmed, and a beauty. There
were many beautiful and costly presents
aud many hearts were made glad by be
ing so kinuiy remembered by frienda
aud dear ones.
Sauta Claue was not present. The
reason must be his accident here last
Christmas. Possibly his beard had nob
grown out since it was burned off last
year and he wouldn't come because he
would not have looked natural.
May we enjoy tuauy such Christniasea.
