    • Otis Houser is about to shake Cleveland mud, and take up his quarters in the West - somewhere in the region where our old friend Asher Potter is located. Otis tells us he will leave next week (October 27th), and has already bid his numerous sweethearts good-by. [3]
    • Otis Houser left us Monday, en route for Wisconsin. He took with him the well-wishes of numerous friends, as well as 8 cooked chickens, mounds of sandwiches, and a liberal supply of kraut, limberger, and "lakewater!" [4]

    • The next case was that of Otis Houser. Otis was arrested on complaint of his father, charged with having entered the house and in ill temper broken, destroyed and damaged property to the amount of $75. In reply to his Honor as to what he had to say to the charge, Otis admitted the fact, although he couldn't see where the $75 damage came in. This offense was susceptible of a heavy fine, but the stern parent finally relented, and the matter was adjudicated between themselves. [6]
