being present at this place. In tho
afternoon tho bridal parly drove to thu
homo of J. W. Wallin, about six miles
northwest of this city, whoro a bounti
ful supper was served, there being
present about 100 of tho neigh

couples and their parents. After tho
supper tho rooms wero cleared and tho
young puoplo enjoyed themselves at
dancing until daylight Wednesday
morning, Allen McCoy and Frank
Kuilrnii furnishing tho music, which it
is needless to say was of tho best, the
young folks enjoying thomsolvos as
only young pcoplocaii.
On Wednesday Mrs. Benjamin Kali

and aro very popular among thoir ac
quaintances. Tiik Ciiibv joins with their many

A Bad Accident.
Littlo Neal Lindsay mot with a seri
ous accident last Sunday evening. Tho
accident occurred at tho' homo of his
foster father, Geo. W. Lindsoy, south
east of this city. It seems that ho had
led tho family driving horso from tho
barn to a grazing spot just south of
tho house. A short timo afterward
Miss Mabel Lindsoy saw tho horso
running townrd tho barn, and upon in
vestigation littlo Neal was found lying
beside tho road in an unconscious con
dition. Ho was taken into tho houso
nnd ti physician was called. Restora
tives wero administered, but tho littlo
follow did not recover consciousness
until tho next mornlag. Just how tho
accidont occurred is not definitely
known. Ho was struck or kicked on
tha right sido of tho hoad, but it U not
thought tho skull was fractured. At
tho present writing ha is getting along
as well as could bo expected.

Incidents o! Every Day Life Which Very
Few People Stop to ThlnktAbout on
Account of Their Littleness.
Tho weather tho foro part of tho
weok was onough to drivo anything out
of tho country. However wo have ono
satisfaction. Tho wind blow ;about
as much in tho country ns it took out.
People who n few days ago owned no
real estate at present aro possessors of
ii liberal amount. But the parties who
clcim hotisa early iu tho spring in or
der to got tho measly job off thoir
hands, my, but thoy aro mad. And wo
don't blamo thorn a dorn bit. For tho
past thrco yenrs wo have baon threat
ening to establish n sort of summer
garden in our back yard whoro tho
woary-willies, yollow-hammors aad tho
jack knife politicians could whilo away
their idle moments. But tho unex
pected always happens. Tho first year
wa planted It to bluo grass. Somobow
tho socd was no good, when itenmo up
it grow about six or eight faot tall
and had big "jailor posies" on it. Tho
next spring, after making all prep
arations to lix It up, along comes a fol
low and tills It full of brick, mortal
boxes, limo barrels, hoisting machinery
and lumber. Done up again. Then
again this'spring wo decided to tackle
tha job on a moro extensive scale with
fish pond in tho collar to savo shoo
leather, when hi and behold, along
comes a fellow and tills our would havo
been summer resort full of scrap iron
gas pipe, old plows and cultivators ami
various other farming tools, which
mnkes it look like tho south sido of u
blacksmith shop. But wo aro in hopos
that in tho course of n fow years wo
will bo enabled to put our plan into ef
fect. Spring may not bo hero yet, but
all tho samo wo havo noticed several
cases of spring fever. Vou can toll it
on a person whon you moot him. Tho
disease is a contagious ono nnd wo
would recommend that tho authorities
take tho proper steps to quarantine all
cases that show up. Tho picnic party
season is about hero. So is tho 11 y and
bug season. It will ulso bo tho season
for moonlight promenades instead of
sitting around a stove in tho parlor.
Instead of papa buying coal it will bo
sonny bujing ico cream aud ico cream
soda. Already somo of our peoplo
havo begun to kick about tho dry
weather and say no crop this year.
What's tho difference. Tho Indians,
buffuloos and prairie dogs lived around
hero when thero wasn't n thing raised.
Thay never kicked. Just think how
much bettor off everything Is now than
it was then, and then quit your kick
ing and howling.
