a worse accident, for future indepen

The largest morning audience of
any so far occupying the Presby
terion church, assembled last Sunday
morning, the special musical program
being a solo by Mrs. B. P. McKinnie,
who delighted the audience with a
volume and magnificence of voice in
her musical number seldom heard
outside of grand opera. Mrs. McKin
nie has for a number of years been
engaged in grand opera, singing in all
the larger cities of this country, and
our people are fortunate in being
able to hear a lady of her musical
ability. Mr. and Mrs. McKinnie have
consented to give a musical recital in
the Presbyterian church some time
this fall, and on that occasion we feel
assured will occur the irchest musical
treat ever offered to our people.
During the heavy rainstorm last
Friday night, the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Alex Baillie in Washington
township was totally destroyed by
lightning. The fire occurred right in
the midst of the heavy rain, about
one o’clock in the morning, Mrs.
Palllie fortunately waking from a
heavy slumber by the smell of smoke
and rousing her husband and son,
Alex, in time for all to escape from
the burning building, but not in time
to save anything of value, two trunks
and contents being the dnly things
taken therefrom, save a few pieces of
wearing apparel. We understand Mr.
Baillie carried $1,000 insurance on
tha home and contents. They will
immediately begin the erection of a

host of friends of the estimable fami
ly will sympathize with them in their
financial loss, but glad.no loss of life
