Miss Nettie Bicknell* in the Pratt district,.jJwd Miss Mertie Presley, at Hatton, on Friday last closed successful terms of school. Both taught this spring for the first time, and both made good records as teachers. And now some people are finding fault because the village didn't vote to raise S7,000 instead of $5,000. for water works. The Press believes that, economically expended, $5,000 will be ample to cover all needed expenses. Ladies waiting for trains at the depot will not be compelled hereafter to sit and breathe the smoke issuing from the mouths of men puffing on poor cigars and strong pipes. The new administration has put its foot down. Smoking must go. The Wallaceburg, (Ont.) Herald has the following item of Clare news: Last Tuesday, 16th inst., Mr. D. P. McDonald left here and paid a visit to Port Huron, and from thence to Clare, Michigan; there he secured a marshal of good muscle, and with the ability to use it, and the two proceeded away back into the bush about five miles, where they had reason to believe John Dusten was rusticating, Mr. McDonald wishing to interview the said John on an important matter. Sure enough they found John in all his glory gee-hawing with a span of horses and a plough among pine stumps. D. P. was just selfish enough to want to capture those horses for an old debt of John's long since due, amounting to about $200. He did capture them, too, and took them to ,Clare, and would have brought them back here had not some of John's friends done the handsome and released them by giving good security for the payment of the debt. D. P. says that his success is largely due to the efficiency of the officers of the law at Clare; as they assisted him in every possible way. He says, too, that Glare'is-a pretty little, busiiness-like town, and that he met several old friends there,reeeiving a hearty hand shake from all but John; still he wishes even.him success. thence to McEwan .street from both sides,; thvis making a eiteuifc from which any building in the yillage €onld he reached in case of fire. Cassie Slattery a teit-yeftr*old"boy was arrested yesterday on complaint of John West, the Prosecuting Attorney after investigation; having ordered a warrant to issue. The youngster was charged with assault and battery upon two little girls younger than himself. His father defended Iiim before a jury in Justice Al ward's court and a verdict of "not guiltv" was rendered. Mrs. Jacob Hepfinger gave birth on Friday last to a girl baby, healthy and vigorous, and perfect in every way save that there were" five fingers on either hand. One of lhe extra fingers w*as of natural size and as well formed as any finger is at birth, but the other was.an abnormal growth from the base of the little finger. Dr. Carpenter removed the unnecessary At the council meeting last night a sidewalk wTas ordered built on the west side of Beach street from First street on the south side to Fifth street at the school bonse. The expense of this is estimated at a couple hundred dollars but an iexamination of the books show that there will be but a little over half that amount in the treasury after paying expenses already incurred. President Boekafellow and Trustee Goodman opposed this sidewalk measure strenuously the former speaking earnestly against its passage, characterizing it as uncalled for extravagance, and threatening to resign his position as President if the. council proposed to scatter the public funds with so much Unconcern. Already some of the Trustees are talking about an $800 or $1,000 tax this year and this administration is less than four months old. On the other hand it is urged, v MORE I4OCAI«.

It is earnestly desired that that meeting will be largely attended, not only'by the gentlemen, but by the ladies also.
