THE ELECTION. The election of candidates for the shire innrcil which took place yesterday tcaued very little excitement in Traralgon, and the Ir ly sign of anllything out of the usual routine was the glroup of ashout 100 rasoins in the vicinity of the Shire Hall. The canllidates for ihe council, Messrs Mill and Walker. were both actively aon?le, abunlt and looking their pleasan test, and two of the candidates for the Inst of auditor. were also present in the gauip. In boIth the cases of the candi dates for the council and the auditorship, the nmpport was pretty, equally given, as Mr Mill only gained a majority of eight at Traralgon, and the voting elsewhere made the contest a tie. Mr Baird, for the auditorship polled only one .les thlin Mr .C,.tes. the other local candtidate. At Maonell, matters were also quiet and the voting pretty eqtal. The following are the returns: Council, Cenitral lidi?ig. TRA.I1LGON. Mill ... ... ... 130 Walker ... ... .... 12 TTEI.S Mill ... ... 24 Walker ....

A FALL OF BIRDS. -:0: At Chicago, a strange spectacle was recently witnessed in the vicinity of the Board of Trade. The tower of the building reaches a height of 350 feet above the street, and near the top is surrounded at night by a great circle of electric lights. When the watchman made his rounds at daylight he found the sidewalks and streets covered with thousands of dead birds of all sorts Later the electrican came down, and when he saw the great pile of birds, he said it was the electric light at the top of the tower that caused the slaughter. When he went with a lantern, with several members of the Board of Trade, the roof was found to he covered wi'h dead birds, and each of the lamps in the big circle of light was filled with them. One globe had eight birds in it, two being still alive. These birds are of every knwn variety, and many unknown or rather, unfamiliar species, are among the lot.- All shades and colors are there-scarlet, blue, pink, rel, canary, mottled, black and...
