CAPITOLIANS

Mat FLYNN has opened a fine barber shop in the Shoudy Block. Byron CHISHOLM had his shoulder broken last week by a horse jumping on him. J. H. WELLS, who has charge of the big ditch, has opened an office in the Shoudy block. The suit of RITCHIE vs. the school directors resulted in a verdict for the plaintiff for
$1700. It will be appealed. Mrs. HULL'S exhibit of paintings by her students was well attended last Saturday... The Wenatchee Advance says Dr. RICHARDSON was held up there and robbed of $3. His friends
here will be pleased to hear that he has made a raise over there. Company A will leave here next Monday for American Lake, having been detailed to go in
advance of the regiment and get the grounds in order for the encampment. The case of the N.P. vs. KILMORE et al, to restrain the defendants from interfering with
the fencing of the right of way, was decided by Judge UPTON last Saturday in favor of the
railroad. B. C. PILCHER brought down twenty-four ounces of gold nuggets from his claim on the Swauk

A BRAVE BOY

Last Monday Lee, the 13 year old son of S. W. BARNES, obtained the permission of his parents
to take a drive with the gentle family horse. Taking J. R. WALLACE's 5-year-old boy with him,
he started out. When near BROWN's slaughter house, he drove into a fearful mire and horse and
buggy were immediately swamped. The little boy got frightened, but Lee did not lose his
presence of mind and soon succeeded in getting the child on solid ground. Meantime the horse
had floundered about in the mud and finally got clear under. The boy, however, got his head
above the mud and succeeded in keeping it raised until he got the traces unfastened. By a
supreme effort he got the horse up and out of the mire, and leaving the buggy, the two children
walked to their homes, leading the besmeared and almost dead horse. This is not the first time
such a thing has happened there and the attention of the road supervisor is called to the
matter ...
