The matter of establishing a market for all kinds of county produce does not get along as nicely as it might. The committee of the council, having a selection of a site to look after made a report in favor of a certain part of North Street. The residents of the locality suggested objections to having view of the landscape obstructed by sliced veal, spring lambs, garden truck and wagon covers. The market men believe the people of Sidney will be well pleased after a trial of the enterprise. The people are ready to try it, and all that is needed to encourage it is an agreeable location.

NEW YORK (AP) – Arsenio Hall says he and Jay Leno are not friends and he will have no qualms battling Leno for the late-night television viewers and guests. “I’m going to treat him like we treated the kid on the high school basketball team who was the coach’s son. He was there because he was anointed, too. We tried to kick his ass, and that’s what I’m going to do, kick Jay’s ass,” Hall said.
