An amusing incident occnrteil at tlie
M L. chur h on l.-wt Suuday evening.
AHcrtlif. pastor Ii:m1 , 1o1 Uh sermon,
he armimnce.1 that an oppoi tunity would
l (,'iven for any one desirin- to unite
with tlie cluiri h, and using tlie expres
sion g-nerally us.;d on such occasions he
stated that "during the ainirisg of tlie
next hymn tlM! doors of the church
would I oj), n." The janitor was a new
one and d d not "cut. h onto" the mean
ing of the minister, but anxious to do
hi duty, a noun as the singing of the
next hymn liegan, the janitor proceeded
tooimn wide the entrance doors to the
hurch. As the mercury was quite low
it is ensy to imagine that sia h a pro
ceedingH threw a coolness over tlie en
-The supply of water was exhausted
in the public reservoir on Tuesday even
ing nnd then it was learned that the
hoiler was out of repair so that no more
water could be puniiel until it was
Ixed. t is to I- hoped that such a
date of air.tirs will not occur often for
t. puts the town in liad sluijie. If a fire
hould In-euk out it would lie almost im
possihle to do anything to check it, and
iTreat loss would result. The work on
the largo reservoir has stop-d. as we
are informed for the want of funds, and
it is not known when work will he re
turned. Had this hecn completed it
would have enabled the town to have
kept a much greater supply of water on
hand for use in emergencies like the
pumping apparatus becoming disabled.
At the prize medal contest on last
Friday evening the medal was awarded
to Miss Emma Weir. These contests
are well atleiided. as on the last evening
as many Wore present as could !e seated.
t i a little liixcotirciging to the ladies
wIki linve charge of the contests that so
ninny of those ex petted to take part fail
to put in an appearance. The ladies are
wurking hard to give a scries of enter
tainments hoth interesting and instruct
ive and the people Hppreeiate their (-f-forts
and it m certainly to be hoped that
thw who promise to assist will not fail
them in future as it causes a disappoint
ment to all. There arc but two more
medals to lie contested for until there
will lie enough so that a class can be
formed from those holding the silver
medals to enter a contest for a gold med
al, after which another denes of contests
for silver medals will begin.
There appears to tie a good deal of
flax need needed in this locality for need
mir and our neoule do not know where!
to gel it. It has lieen suggested that an
etrrt lie made to get the seed sent out.
by some of the eastern dealers and furn
ished the farmers with the agreement
that the farmers sell the crop raised to
the parties who furnish the need, at a
price agreed upon at time of making the
contract. That iH the way a large pro
portion of the flax seed is obtained by
tlie farmers in the eastern part of the
suite and by that method the seed is
kept free from foul seeds, for the dealers
have the bust machinery for cleaning it.
Tlie business men of Harrison should take
hold of this matter and see if they can
not assist the farmers in getting me
seed necessary for use next spring. , It
