Alamo Electric Lighting system for

tine. August has all the light he
needs and some to spare, as the wire
has been run all over the farm and
lights are placed in every room and
outbuilding where they are needed.

on the market, and wherever they
have been installed in this locality
they are giving excellent satisfaction

Maxwell Fxhibit at Weeping Water.
Pert Philpot gave another one of
those famous celebrations, Maxwell
demonstration and general good time
down at Weeping Water last Satur
day afternoon and evening, which
proven one ot tne biggest successes
pulled off in that city for some time
The band was out, and entertained
the many visitors before the demon
t rat ion of what the powerful little
.Maxwell auto was capable or pe
forming. Mr. Philpot had prepared
quite a program for the occasion, but
the main object was to show the peo
ple of the locality the many good
points in tne .Maxwell car, and irom
those who were present we learn that
he done this to completeness. The
s car was loaded to its luilest ca
pacity of its rating, and was driven
around over the city in the mud, and
then after a test of up and down the
hills, it was placed at the head of a
large water wagon, used for street
sprinkling, with five men on it and
driven up the main street in several
inches of mud. The little car seemed
to handle its load with ease, too. Mr
Philpot s right hand man Gregory
wheeled the little man of the hills over
the city. The pleasant time of the
occasion was pulled on in the opera
house in the evening, at which time
the social dance was given. The mu-
s-ic was furnished by the Jones Or
chest ra, and an excellent time was had
by all present.
From Wednesday's Dally.
If the visitors at the Hotel Riley
have noticed anything amiss with the
genial host of that establishment,
Mont Robb, today, the following will
explain all: A message was received
by Mr. Robb today from his son,
Fleming, at Billings, Montana, an
nouncing the arrival of John Alton
Robb at their home at 8:30 Monday
evening, and that the mother and lit
tle son are getting alone in fine shape.
This is the first boy in the Robb fam
ily, and as a consequence the rejoic
ing with Mr. and Mrs. Robb, the
happy grandparents, is apparent. The
mother of the new representative, of
the Robb family was formerly Miss
Bessie Tyson of Elmwood, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. I,. A. Tyson, and the
friends of the two families will join
in wishing the your.g man a very long
and prosperous career.
