The room in the old trustees hall on Union avenue, now being fitted up for the use of the trustees will be ready for them July 5.

Michael Welsh was found Tuesday night sleeping on the porch of the Presbyterian chapel. Justice Hendrickson sent him to the county jail for 30 days.

Contractor George Marshall has completed the work of filling in the excavations on the Town Hall property and grading the ground and made a good job of it. The plot will be fenced and the ground laid out in lawns and flower beds.
