In Judge Schlingloff’s police court Friday afternoon Columbus Miller plead guilty to carrying concealed weapons and “shooting Ed. Child’s hat off.” For this artistic gun play he got the limit, $50, and costs, total $57.50. Childs, for being in a condition to be willing to have his hat shot off, got $25. The bullet wound on Child’s head was not serious, just a good scalp wound and in a few days will be forgotten.
A petition for a license to operate a pool and billiard hall in what is known as the Smoke House, signed by Earl Giddings, was read at the regular session of the city fathers Monday evening and the license granted.
By request of the lady patrons of the rink, tomorrow, Friday evening, will be ladies night. And that they may have their wishes entirely, gentlemen will skate only on invitation of the ladies.
About two months ago some one borrowed a journal of American history of Mr. A.E. Case and has forgotten to return it. Please return to Rosse Case. Also, Rosse says some one borrowed a pick and spade and forgot to return them. Wonder who forgot.
Kieferle and Williams have fitted the new court house up with cuspidors which are among the most beautiful things to be seen about the building. What a pity to soil them for the purpose for which they were created. The cork carpet ordered for the different rooms, is in place, and gives first class satisfaction. Easy under foot and makes a quiet room.
