Campion-Callakan Trouble.

Edward Campion of Jamaica was fined $5 by Justice Detheridge for assaulting Margaret Callahan's son. They are neighbors. Mrs. Callahan thrashed Campion in a fair fight, and he has sued her for $5,000 damages. He has also brought an action against her for letting her cattle run at large.

Hay! Hay!

Best timothy, eighty cents a hundred; mixed hay, seventy cents. J. & T. Adikes are receiving large quantities direct from the West and are offering it at low prices from cars.
