There was quite a rumpus at Barnes & Swan's Saloon Saturday evening. Two young men started up from Bountiful to go hunting geese on the range, but they fell by the wayside and took on an overbalanced cargo of bad whiskey and proceeded to abuse all within their reach. One of them tried to show fight with Officer Barton and wanted to get a gun out of his buggy. From doing this he landed in jail.
------ Thanksgiving in Kaysville was spent very quietly. A dance in the Music Hall at night was the only form of entertainment.
------ Judge Phillips and party returned from their unsuccessful deer hunt last Thursday. During their 11 day absence they succeeded in killing one deer, no doubt a cripple.
------ The household of Mr. George H. Draper was made happy early Wednesday by the arrival of a "bouncing baby boy."
------Merchants have been doing a rushing business this week and the number of toys as well as substantial presents have disappeared from their windows. It goes to show Santa Claus will be visiting nearly every household.
------ Sometime Sunday night the shade trees in front of John G.M. Barnes house were pulled up and thrown into the street. Gates were taken off their hinges and carried away. Other depredations were committed. Mr. Barnes has found out who the boys were and unless they make reparation they will be given the opportunity to prove their innocence before Judge Phillips.
