Dale or Nuttall. A woman who

was Nuttall and that she married
him in Concord, N. C, twenty yearn

identified Dale as Nnttall and so
did a dozen persons who said they
knew Nnttall intimately in North

wife at Concord and was traced to
Charlotte, where he worked as a
printer. He left there and about

Cleveland and Hill Men Htrlve
tbe Mastery A Drawn Battle.
Rochester, N. Y., August 21
The Democratic caucuses in the
city of Rochester and the country
districts of Monroe county were held
last evening under the arrangement
made by the State committee look
ing to the pacification of the mil
and Cleveland factions of the party.
The results as a whole were sur

between the factions, which have
been at daggers drawn for several
years, had not been thoroughly
harmonized- In ten of the twenty
wards of the city each faction
was successful, and in the country
as a bole the same proportion
marked the result, the Cleveland
men carrrmg the hrst and third
assembly districts and the Hill men
the second and fourth. This will
make an even break for State com
mitteemen. Divided on the lines
of senatorial distrcts, the Hill men
carried the forty-tlird and the
Cleveland men the forty-fourth.

weeks ago he cut some green willow
blanches and made a rustic screen
of them, using them for the frame
work. As some of the pieces were
crooked he straightened them and
laid them on the top of a box with
weights on them in the open air and
sunshine to dry and season.
After this he gaye them three
coats of white paint (lead and oil),
and completed the screen. It has
been Betting in the front hall of his
residence since it was finished and
now green twigs are growing, vigor
ously out of the frame, some of them
being already over an inch in length.
They are growing at the points
where the little limbs were cut off.
As to things growing after brbg
