Fencing is the question you are about to consider. Whether
it be Field, Poultry or Garden it is necessary that you get just
what is best adapted for your purpose and to give the best results.
If you think of getting poultry fence, let us show you poultry fence
that is about three times as heavy as the ordinary Diamond Mesh
fence and at very little additional cost. This fence is heavy
enough to turn stock if necessary, and will turn smaller chickens
than the Diamond Mesh. New car of fence will be here in a few
days, so in order to be sure to have what you want at the time you
want it, let us set it around your yard.

assures the county of a careful and
fair enumeration. It behooves the

to take some steps to assist the enu
merators in this city in the work for
it will prove a hard task for those
selected here to got anywhere near
the correct count of the Inhabitants.
The appointment of aids to the ladies

In the wards where there is a large
Bohemian population as none of them

Young Mr. Joseph Ellis Kinnamon

In via the Stork route last Monday,
the 2 1 Inst., making his stopping
place with Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Kla
namon. He is some boy, too, and tip

going some for one of his age. The
father Is about as proud of this
youngster as any father ever gets to
be and don't consider any other boy
half as fine. The mother is also
among those who is proud and she
owns up that Joseph Ellis is some
man. Both mother and child are do
ing fine. The young man was named
after one of Mr. KInnamon's good
friends, Jos. Wiles and they hope the

citizen as his god-father.
A 111 Sale.
The administrator's sale of personal
property belonging to the estate of
the late Robert Kandall, was held
yesterday at the home place east of
Union and was one of the largest at
tended sales ever held in that Boctlon
of the country. The property which
was high grade in every respect
brought good prices, and the salq
netted the estate a handsome sura.
One feature of the sale was the fancy
prices brought by the mules which
were sold. Theso brought big prices.
The yearling mules sold at from $100
to $123 per head considered a good
price for animals of that age. The
older mules brought prices as high in
proportion whllo the horses and other
farm anlmal3 fared exceedingly well
In proportion. The entire sale gave
the estate a nice sum of ready cash
and will leave a handsome surplus in
the estate's funds.

Dear brave, old Pioneer! one of the few,
Who in the manhood of an earlier day.
Did'st toil steadfastly on to blaze the way
Thro' labyrinth of grief, and trial, and woe,
That followers might find a broken trail; '
Where stout hearts failed, and cheeks grew wan and pale.
And weary, faltering feet refused to go,
Until cheered on by thy clear, ringing voice,
Which oft-times'soothed and made sad hearts rejoice,
Ia vesper hymn, or glorious matin song.
Or. happily singing some sweet roundelay.
As ever toiling onward day by day,
Each task was met with earnest look, the while
Thy face grew radiant with thy grave, sweet; smile
Old friend, thou art sorely missed; and yet we know
That thou hast gone, the way we all must go,
Across the dim gray mists of Charon's sea,
To wake in Dear Christ's Love; still may we follow thee.

Have- Heed Corn Tent"d.
In view of the fact that so much of
the seed corn this year is very poor
we have arranged to have seed corn
tested free in our high school for the
farmers In this city and vicinity. Corn
in bushel lots and less will be tested
nd a report furnished showing the
result of such test. We have con
ducted work of this nature for the
past three years In connection with
the work in agriculture and any re
port made on seed tested under the
supervision of our teacher of agri
culture can be depended upon as be
ing reliable. Corn may be left at
the office of the superintendent any
time after Monday morning, March
28. All persons who leave seed will
be notified wheu it is ready to be
returned to them. Any farmer desir
ing further information relative to
seed testing please call at the office
or telephone 102. J. W. Gamble,
Supt. of Schools.
