lflt Thnssday was the date divided
on for holding the ratification dinner and
ball in commemoratioq of the victory of
the Ciiisep's ticket at the polls ia Nov.
7th. For tome time the work of prepar

Thursday, arrived the details were as
near completed as could be. The day
was th ooldest of the season and
stormy weather was threatened ami
those condition det-red nianr from at
tending. As it was dinner was served
at the court house from I o'cloi k till "
and about two hundred people were ltd.
The dinner . was a success in every
respect and many were Hut compliments
paid to it by those who partook of it.
The program of speeches had to be
abandoned as it was impassible to ac
commodate those who came there to
dinner and carry out a program.
The danpe in the evening was well at
tended and over one hundred were served
with supper at Scott's restaurant, so
thai part of the arrangement cannot be
said to be a failure. The music was fur
nisiied by Messrs, Cunningtjam, Bartlett
and Dew and was of the same good
quality always furnished by them, so
that all were satisfied on that score
The attendance was not nearly so
large either at the dinner or ball as it
would have been had the weather been
less severe, for few were present from
any great distance from town and a
great many had expressed their intention
of being present who failed to put in an
A special invitation was sent to each
of the defeated candidates, but it seemed
tliat none of them are io a very good
humor for not one of them accepted the
courtesy extended, and their ill-natured
act simply shows they are mad because
the people did as they pleased and refus
ed to continue or put them in office, but it
did not spite any one but themselves.
Taken as a whole the entire atrair was
a success and all who attended enjoyed
themselves to a high degree,
Those who were interested in the
affair desire us to express their tlumks to

. So again has the grim Reaper visited us
and removed from among us, by the aid
of that dreadful disease, diphtheria, an
other young life that was most dearly
loved by all. The little fellow was first
taken ill a week ago last Monday, but
the true disease was not recognized until
several davs later. All that could be
done by human hands was done by lov
ing parents and tender friends, but all to
no purpose, he gradually growing worse
until Tuesday morning when the spirit
took flight, with seemingly much suf
fering to the little body. Taylor was
conscious up to the last moment, but
being unable to speak made known his
wants by means of signs and gestures.
He fully realized that he was soon to
puss to his lost beautiful Home and talk
ed freely of things which most interested
his parents. The funeral services were
held from the house on Wednesday at
11 o'clock, conducted by Rev. A. R. Jul
ian, of Chadron, presiding elder. The
community join in extending sincere
sympathy to the mourning family.
