HAS BEEN VERY FAIR
AMONG OUR MERCHANTS
The past week lias been a very
busy one for Che various mer
chants of I he city, and tlie Christ
mas trail; seems to be greatly im
proving ainl 1 lie shoppers show
an inclination to lake up I he
early Christmas shopping' pro
position and many have secured
(heir gifts for their loved ones
and friends and by purchasing
them early have assisted in
lightening the load of the. weary
clerks, who receive their full
share of work during the holiday
reason, when most of the stores
are crowded with the eager shop
pers. There remains only three
more shopping days before
Christmas and ohose who desire
to secure the best of the stocks
should go early, as a great many
of the lines have been well picked
over so far this year, and the
longer the delay is in making the
purchases the less the chance for
securing the best articles.

that kept me awake nights. Two
small bottles of Foley's Honey

cured me." For sale by all drug

ANCIENT MAUL ADDED
TO FRED PATTERSON'S
COLLECTION OF CURIOS
From Saturday's Dally.
County Surveyor Fred Patter
son greatly startled the occupants
of the court house this morning
by appearing in that building
armed with a large maul of wood,
and it was feared at lirst that he
was about to clean out the place,
but later it was found that he had
secured an addition to his col
lection of relics, of which he has
a large number. The maul is of
a curious formation of wood, ap
parently being constructed out of
a large root of a tree, and was
found a few days ago by William
Gilmore on the new road leading
along the Missouri river bluffs,
and he gave it to Mr. Patterson,
who will place it among the other
specimens he has secured of the
curious finds in this county.

HAS PLEASANT MEETING
WITH ARTHUR WHITE
From Saturday's Dally.
lhe sophomore class of the
local High school last evening
held a very pleasant class party
at the home of Arthur White, one
of the class, and the event was
one that will be pleasantly re
membered by' the sophomores and
more unpleasantly by a number
of visitors, who came uninvited
and who suffered severely as a
result of their "butting in." It
seems that wind of the proposed
visit of several parties of mem
bers of other classes and of sev
eral who were out of school for
the past few years was conveyed
to the sophomores, and they pre
pared accordingly and secured a
tine, juicy pie which was loaded
with medicine calculated to make
things lively for those who ate it,
and this was placed out on the
porch of the White home -and it
was the lirst object seized upon
by the visitors, who devoured it,
but this morning there were sev
eral faces missing from Main
street and the pie eaters were
kept busy doctoring themselves
up at home. The young people
enjoyed themselves to the utmost
at the parly in the playing of
anios of various kinds and in
the contemplation of the misery
of their uninvited guests. There
were some thirty present.

SUDDEN DEATH OF
MRS. ED. LOHNES,
NEAR CEDAR CREEK
From Saturday's Dally.
The news was received in Ibis
city this morning of the sudden
death at her home, south of Cedar
Creek, of Mrs. Kd Lohnes, which
occurred yesterday afternoon at
about 5 o'clock. It is alleged that
the death was caused from taking
carbolic acid with suicikial in

young woman was beyond all re
lief when found. Mrs. Lohnes
was a young woman still in her
early twenties and her death
came as a profound shock to her
relatives throughout the county,
who had no intimation of her in
tentions to take this step, and
they are . grief-stricken over the
affair. Mrs. Lohnes was a
daughter of deorge Meisinger,
residing in the vicinity of My
nard, and was married about
three years ago to Kd Lohnes,
who survives his wife. The cause
for the alleged suicide cannot be
clearly given, although thought
lo be family matters.

From Saturday's Dally.
Yesterday while Mrs. fSeorge M.
Hild, of near Mynard, was assist
ing at the John Urish home in the
making of some sausage she met
with a very painful accident that
will cause her lo remember the
occasion for some time to come.

the sausage grinder and in doing
so had the misfortune lo get the
tip of the middle linger of the left
hand caught in the grinder, with
the result that the tip of the
linger was taken off. Medical as
sistance was at once summoned
and the injury dressed and the
victim of the accident made as
comfortable as possible, although
the injury was a most pair.ful

A WARNING IN
REGARD TO THE
From Friday's Daily.
Fire Commissioner W. S.
Ridgell has issued the usual
warning to people not lo spoil the
merry Yule time by selling lire
to Christmas trees or lo the whis
kers of Sanla Clans. His instruc
tions for people who desire to
celebrate in their homes by erect
ing a tree with presents on it, is
lo lirst get a good lire exl iuguish
er and keep it in the home. Then
get a bucket of wafer and set il
near the tree. Then get a bunch
of. asbestos of mineral wool to
represent snow, use eleclrie
lights if possible instead of can
dles on the Iree, :hire an expert
electrician to put in the wires,
and then let the festivities com
mence, all of the time keeping a
close watch on the furnace - or
slove so that lhe healing ap
paratus does not set lire to any
thing. Under such circumstances
the fire warden believes lhe
Christ mas season will be a thing
of joy instead of one of disaster.
Mr. Ridgell has evolved lhe theory
from scientific investigation lhat
every lire is the same size at the
start, but some grow "to an ap
palling extent. "Is'it not -for
use to prevent (he small blaze?"
he asks. He asks lire chiefs of
city and village lire departments
to examine the decorations in
stores and lo place a chemical ex
tinguisher for use at churches or
opera houses where there is a
public Christmas Iree. "No dis
astrous fires Ibis coining merry
Yule time," is the wish of Com
missioner Ridgell. Someone ouf
sfde of lhe commissioner's office
suggested lo him thai it plight be
well jo have a law passed lo pre
vent Christ mas tree celebrations
within less I ban fifly feel, of any
house or to bury the trees under
ground as gasoline tanks are now
required to be buried. Stale
Has His Thumb Cut.
From Saturday's Daily.
Yesterday while Krie H:rk
slroin was gelling ready for the
Christinas celebration by having
a large tree prepared for lhe oc
casion, he was uufortiiiirde
enough lo saw one of his thumbs
while engaged in culling olf the
bull of the Iree, and il required
several stitches to close the
wound and Krie will not be in th-'
best, of trim for lhe Christmas
festivities and will be compelled
lo wear his hand in a bandage for
a few days.
