JULY 1, 6,20,27, 1890
- One of the citizens got to imbibing a little too freely in liquor Wednesday afternoon and was creating such a disturbance our marshal found it necessary to place him under arrest. He was the 1st man to have the honor of occupying a cell in the new city jail. Yesterday he was brought up before Justice Phillips and fined $5.
------ Mrs. R. G. Lewis has again opened her ice cream and confectionery parlors near the Post Office.
------ Lovers of sport will probably find plenty of fun in the mountains east of here. It is reported a young man herding sheep killed an old bear and 2 cubs last week.
------ In view of the fact that Ogden and Salt Lake have such great attractions, the people of Kaysville have concluded not to celebrate the 4th of July.
------ George Swan Jr. and party returned from their fishing trip last Monday, laden with the trophies of their skills. Judge Phillips caught 150, George Swan 143, and K.W. Barnes about 60 fish.
------ During the past few weeks we have had a superfluity of the "Tramp Fraternity" in our midst, generally of the looking for work and praying they will never find it type, who delight in doing nothing and sponging their living from hard working people. The city ordinance relating to vagrancy should be rigidly enforced and our town would be rid of what is at present a public nuisance.
------ At the school election Monday, the people's nominee R. W. Barnes was elected as Trustee.
------The front of our Co-Op store presents a beautiful appearance, since the painters have been working on it. The name of the institution is printed across the front in large letters, while over the doors and windows in gold lettering is the announcement they deal in dry goods, clothing, groceries, etc.
