"The Harp That Once Through Tara's Halls," "Jini Crowe" and "Annie Laurie," too And, answering its bugle calls, The old times rise for me and you.

Grant's denouncement came about in a most sensational manner and demonstrates that "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." Kirkpatrick was murdered on the night of July 10 last in an alley at Altamont. Frank Grant and George Krogman, his brother-in-law, were suspected of the crime and were bound over to the grand jury.

Several days ago Grant went on a debauch and severely beat his wife. She had him arrested for assault and battery and during the trial she went on the stand and accused her husband of having ...

To the voters and tax payers of the village of Ashton, we, the President and Board of Trustees respectfully submit the following report. When we assumed our official duties May 1st, 1905, we found but $7.68 in the treasury and unpaid bills to the amount of $270.44, leaving a total deficit of $265.51 From this it will be seen that we began business with the village in debt, and therefore had , nothing with which to make improvement or to do any repairing. The only thing we could do was to borrow. We had to keep bills paid, which we did with the aid of the gas plant, have managed to spend but little more than $1,100,' all of which has been paid.
