On Sunday the saloons in this town were closed and we enjoyed the quietest and most respectable Sabbath day it has been our privilege to have for many years. Much credit is due our marshal, Mr. Whitmore, for so far enforcing the law and it is to be expected that every citizen of sound judgment will stand by him. Even some of the men engaged in the sale of liquors are glad of the change that enables them to have Sunday for rest.
