I.O.F. Tent.
           The local Foresters erected a tent 20 x 40 feet in size on the Market Square on Wednesday to be at the disposal of visiting brethren at the time of the reunion. Oronhyatekha telegraphed: "Wished Perth Old Boys' Reunion great success. Trust our brethren will prove themselves hosts on the occasion. My kindest regards to all." Superintendent of Field Work Mitchell and Organizer Wands are here.

LOCAL MATTERS.
LAW SCHOOL EXAMS. -- A.E. Lyon, of Perth, has passed his first year law examinations.
CIRCUS EMPLOYEES RUN AMUCK. -- Employees of Lemon Bros. circus, which showed in Perth on June 3rd, ran amuck in a couple of Quebec towns. A girl was brutally assaulted, an Indian shot and a young girl was also shot. Besides a gang of sharpers were at work with shell games. The provincial police and garrison artillerymen pursued the circus and arrested four of the marauding gang. The circus is in Carleton Place on July 6 and in Renfrew towns the week following.
FROM VANCOUVER. -- Mr. Albert Adams, contractor, paid a visit to his brother J.H., the photographer, this week. He came over from Ottawa where he was in connection with the letting of a contract for the new post-office in Vancouver. He is now on his way to New York to visit his brother Ambrose. Mr. Adams is a wealthy contractor and at present has the contract of building an isolation hospital in Vancouver at an accepted figure of a quarter of a million dollars; and three years have passed since the ground was first broken.
