Thursday morning an examination
was held for the white teachers of the
, public schools in this county. There

Bicycle thieves are again becoming
numerous. During the past few days
- two local cyclists have had their wheels
' stolen and although they have made a
diligent search, have been unable to lo
cate them or even get the slightest
clue that would enable them to appre
i hend the thieves. The only way to pre
- vent such acts is to keep the bicycles
locked when not in use.
With several vigilant officers always
somewhere in that locality, it is be
coming to be quite a risk for those per

freight warehouse. Already two con

- been confiscated after it had been taken
from the warehouse and started on its
way to the consignee and it is probable
that the same thing will occur again.
Shortly before 3 o'clock yesterday

'. under control, but not before it had
done several hundred dollars worth of
damage. The origin of the fire iu un
known but it Is supposed that a spark
