-- The Kaysville Brick & Tile Manufacturing Co. have commenced shipping bricks.
-- The Grand Calico Ball which was given in the Music Hall last evening, was a most elegant affair. The costumes were very unique and quite diverse, those who stood out: Hyrum Stewart, W.L. Galbraith, Thomas H. Phillips, H. J. Sheffield, John GM Barnes, T. G. Everill, and J. H. Larkins.
-- The Kaysville Historical and Debating Club will debate: "Resolved: That the Right of Franchise Should be Granted to Women."
-- A full grown live Lynx is attracting large crowds of people. The animal was caught in a trap at John W. Burton's farm and was brought to town as a curiosity.
-- The tramp nuisance is again getting beyond all endurance and it is high time something be done to prevent our good people from being imposed upon by such a worthless set of vagabonds as continually infest our city. The last few days they have literally swarmed the streets. One evening 15 of them were lying around the Pacific Depot. Marshall Taylor arrested one of their fraternity and took him before Justice Swan. The man was advised to take the shortest route out of town.
-- A ripple of excitement was created yesterday by the arrest of Mr. George F. Patillo, on a complaint sworn by Joseph Payne, charging him with keeping an unlicensed boardinghouse. Mr. Patillo is an industrious Tin Smith and Mr. Payne is the Hotel proprietor. Patillo was taken before Judge Swan. There was not enough evidence to make a case. Mr. Payne had been using very abusive language toward Mr. West, one of the witnesses for the defense. It is evident another arrest will now be made.
