Incidents of Every Day Life Which Very
Few People Step to Think About en
Account ef Their littleness.
Today (Friday) was ground-hog day.
From all indication the pesky var
mint came oat and saw his image re
fleeted on mother earth. And also ho
cordiug to tradition he crawled back
in his holo. lie is at present supposed
to be enjoying a peceful slumber which
will last until the middle of March.
Ot courie you don't have to believo
tho story about the ground hog unless
you want to. Another thing is did you
ever see a ground hog in this country?
As far as we are concerned we don't
take any stock in ground-hog. That
is with tho exception of the kind usu
ally found in butchor shops. This
kind we find very acceptable and pal
ntable at times. As far as the weathtr
is concerned, the ground hog baa
about as much to do with it as the Ken
tucky gubernatorial fight. By the
signs of the zoidiao spring doea not
commence until the 21st of March and
we dont think the ground hog has any
right to beat the coal man out ot six
weeks of pleasure. Did yon tver no
tice how some of our young girls like
to showithemselves to the young gen
tlemen from the country on Saturdays.
They put on their best "bib and
tucker" and yon bet .they make the
boys look at them.J-The Bed Cloud
girls are noted for their good looks
ad winning ways anyway. We bob
estly believe they can make a "mash"
as it ia commonly called, anytime they
want to. Last Saturday we noticed
ene of them stop and talk to eleven
different fellows in going one block.
If yon can beat that yon are a daisy.
The ice man has been wearing a pleas,
ant smile this week. The small boys,
and the big ones, around the school
house, can get more enjoyment out of
a small block of wood and a shin
ney club than anything else Just at
present. The winner is generally the
one who can stand tho most pounding.
There are a number of people in
this county who have como to the con
elusion that mutual hail insurance
don't pay. If yon have a. lot of old
rubbish you don't want laying around
your plaoe den't get a notion that it
is worthless and bum it up. Just load
it in your wagon and bring it to Uwn
and sell it at public auction on the
street corner. There is always some

Carrie Irons of Inavale, doparted this
life on last Monday, January 20th, at
11 o'clock a.m. aftor a brief illness of
one week. On March 16th ho would
have been twenty years old. His do

best of medical skill could not cenquer
the fatal and complicated ailments.
The bereaved paionts wero prostrated
by the awful visitation of death, and
the betrothed of the deceased, Miss
ilattlc Olmstead, Ih crushed under tho
sad disappointment. "Willie" as ho
was familiarly known, was the lifo and
mainstay of Inavale and a wido circlo
of acquaintances in that part of tho
county. Christianity, business and so
ciety knew him as a manly young man
f sterling worth. Many homes and
hearts will miss his cheerful helpful
ness. "Willlo" waB a devoted member
of the church of Christ. Stato Evange
list L. A Huasong, who so recontly
ministered at Inavalo, was called to
conduct the last sad rites from the M.
E. church at 8 p.m., January 81, 1000.
An able discourse was delivered from
Rev. 14:18. A double quartet furnished
the music and a Itting hymn at the
cemetery, fonr and one-half miles
northeast of Inavale. A great con
course ft friends attended the services
among them being many of the county
ofBolals, and clergymen living near.
The leeal order ef which the deoeased
was a-member, attended ia abodx
The choicest lowers and white lined

which be was held by kind friends.
He will ever be remembered as a Chris
tian who was ever ready for this great
change which came to him.
