Squirrels for Court House Yard.
Mayor Harrington has secured a permit from the county court and will place a number of squirrels in the Maple trees around the court house. Ellis Jackson will put in a wire netting tomorrow to keep the animals at home for a few days in one of the trees just south of the east court house walk. Four squirrels will be placed there at once and others will be added as soon as they can be secured. Mayor Harrington has had four of them locked up in his store room at the hotel, waiting for the permit from the county court, which was secured yesterday.
Of the eight squirrels placed in the city park by Mayor Harrington, three gray ones have run away, but five of them are still there and are making themselves at home quite nicely.
The city marshal is having the weeds in the street cut down. Let the good work go on.
