Council Proceedings.
Tuesday evening of this week was the
time for the regular monthly meeting of
1 the Council, and during a session lastiug
I from •"> to 11:30 p. m. a thousand and one
; matters were considered.
Mr. W. F. Miller appeared and complain
ed of all the water of Main St. being run
down the gutter passing his mill: Mr. Jno.

firmed; the minutes o( the la>t regular
and intervening special meetings were

I $23.25 on hands Irom licenses and fines:
| the appointments of special police for the
Lowry House and "Vogeley House were
confirmed, the hotels to pay the same; lhe
bills of the police to the Ist of April were
approved; Mr.' Lefevre was employed to
look after the fire hydrants at S6O a year;
Mr. Periine of the Water Committee re
ported having had a talk with Mr. Mer
edith of the Water Co. and that the Water
Co. is not yet ready to give prices lor
water for the flushing tank, so the matter
was held over for another week, though an
effort will -be made to secure water for
some of the tanks from springs and driven
wells; Mr. Mechling of the Paving Com
mittee presented the petition of citizens of
C'eutre Ave. from tne railroad crossing
to Ziegler Ave. asking for that part of tne
street be paved, and signed by the neces
sary two thirds of the frontage, but after
considerable discussion the majority of the
Council seemed to be of opinion that the
petition for paving should include that
part of the street from the railroad cross
;ng to McKeau Street, otherwise a mud
bole would be k-ft on either side of the
bridge, and the matter was held over for
another week; liie Jefferson Street pavinjr
was also discussed, u few fe-;t of frontage
is also lacking there and it seems strange
that neither railroad company will sign
the paving petitions; petitions for some
new street lights were relerred to the Gas
Committee; a petition for a sidewalk in the
West lind was referred to the Sidewalk
Committee with power to act; a petition
for a walk on Cbustnut Street was granted

porary sewerage of the new Armory build
ing; the bills of the tire companies for rents
to the Ist of April were allowed, also the
Gas Company bills and quite a number of
other bills for work done and matarials
furnished; Clay street from Franklin to Elm
was adopted and ordered to be opened;
some petitions to connect with the sewers
were referred to the Sewer Committee and
their presentation bronght up the manner
of the construction of the main sewers, in
which a defect or two has been discovered,
and on motion Mr. Hughes and his bonds
men were notified to remedy same at once;
the Centre avenue or Freeport bridgp mat
ter was discussed, and on motion a com
mittee of three was appointed to try and
effect a compromise all around, for as the
matter now stands that bridge may not be
built within the next live years; Council
adjourned till next Tuesday evening.
The Quarto-Centennial.
Some of the members of the Grand
Army, of the county celebrated thequarto
centenial of tbo organization of the socie
ty, at the Orphans' Home in Butler, Tues
day. They met in one of the school-rooms
rooms of the Home that afternoon and
were entertained by the children with
songs and declamations,listened to speeches
by Capt. Fleeger, lion. John M. Greer,
Col. Itedio and Rev. Prugn and a song by
Cyrus llarper. .Some of them took supper
at the home, and as the evening drew on
they reassembled in the school-room and
listened to talks by John T. Kelly and I.
J. McCandles* and songs by Capt. Ayres,
Harper and the school children, who
showed their aptitude by committing to
memory and singing some songs that had
been taken there that afternoon, and
which they then saw for the first time.
The meeting held out till near midnight
and all seemed to enjoy it. Some old sol
diers and visitors were here from distant
parts of the county, but the unfavorable
weather prevented as largo an attendance
as there otherwise would have been.
Throe regiments—the 4th Cavalry, 78th
and 100 th infantry—will reune in Butler
next fall, and an effort is being made to
have a union re-union, and an old timo

—The World Grows.—Noah Webster
would not know bis old dictionary in the
perfection it has attained in the hands of
modern scholars. The world grows, how
ever, and dictionaries with it, so that a
cheap reprint of the 44 years old "origi
nal"' Webster is worth about as much as
an old almanac. Webster's International
Dictionary, the recent successor of the
latest and still copyrighted "Unabridged,"
is the best work ol its kinds ever publish
ed, and, well used in a family, will be of
more value to the members thereof than
many times its cost laid up in money.
