Incidents o! Every Day Life Which Very
Few People Stop to Think About on
Account oi Their Littleness
This week we have bean treated to
enough variations of weather to htiit
tlio mst fastidious. Dust, wind,
watur, and a small quantity of leal
pleasant weather Taking all in all, it
.suits 111. Ono thing sine it was a good
thine for all utowinir vegetation and
especially the wheat and other grain.
Hut lias rain of ye&UMduy morning was
quite u daiupeiier on the parties who
havo new buildings under way. And
while we are talking about new build
ing1;, what's the matter with the opera
house iroj'':t' This is ono improve
ment which is needed here and one
which could bo easily had if somo good
enterprising citizen would just ttart
the ball rolling. We believe 87,000 00
wortli of stock 'could find purchasers
in one week's time in this city. Why
not commence it now and have an
opera house by the time the next show
season rolls around. Wo would sug
gest that tlio mayor call a meeting to
this end and extend especial invitations
to about a dozen or two of our money
ed men to bo present. Wo mean thoso
who are tlio most able to take stock in
such an enterprise. Tlie merry-go-round
hasu'tdono any great amount of
business hero so far. However this is
not bebauso tlio people do not want to
ride, but because the weather has
so bad that the machine couldn't run.
Tlio boys and girls were on the
grounds regular with plenty (?) of the
wherewith with which to ride, but ns
the weather has been wet enough to
wot other things the young people did
not scum to want to art anv wetter bv
stradling tho wooden horses, especially
when the machine wouldn't run und
rub thorn up enough to dry their well,
clothes. Wo like to laugh occassion
al ly, but we don't believe in laughing
at strangers simply because they nro
strangers nnd happen to slio oil tho
sidewalk in a small uiudholu not uuito
knee deep. While wo stood at tho en
trance of our intelligence emporium
watching the outcome of tho horrible
disaster, with eyes in our tears, a loud
horfolaugh chorus arose from (J rice's
corner which would raise boils on the
back of u fellow's nook. The unfor
tunato stranger wended his way east
ward evidently seeking a littlu warm
sympathy, or something else to warm
him up. Fishermans' luck. Wo lost
sight of litui as ho past the corner and
havo not eon him since. Wo bolievo
in traating strangers with geuuiuo hos
pitality and not with "horsepitality"
laughs. Shame on you, Mys. Hut us
wo bolievo in rctiirnkig good fur evil,
wo wish for lots of ouch accidents in
tho future to eutortain tho "corner"
ntfdionco. 0iut Iwarihis in aiind: If
ovor wo should bo so unfortunate as to
be tho victim, then you'ro not supposed
to laugh. Speaking of laughing, wo
heard a follow nt tho blacksmith shop,
last Monduy, who'lnughed ho hard that
ho blow all tho coals out of -tlio forgo,
all bccausoiit boame necessary to ropo
and throw a poor little 15(10 pound

local exchanges that a cemetery is a

How to Avoid Lightning.
Tho leeward side of a tree or grovo
is safest in a thunder storm. Hut keep
a little away from it, for if you stand
near a tree, aud electricity comes down
through it from a ulouil, it may liml
your moist body a better conductor
than tho tree, und jump off and go
down through you. Ueniemberth.it a
persons body is a fair conductor of
electricity, bettor than most other sub.
stances aside from metals and water
itself, which is a good conductor.
