Main Avenue is already much improved
thereby. These things come slowly

Among the places devastated during

happiness , contentment and success in
their new home.
Parties who have purchased lots in
the vicinity of the park block are natur

little of their own medicine.

A few day's since , Receiver Babcock
sold his fine river farm near Cambridge ,
embracing 330 acres of deeded land and
the lease on a school section adjoining ,
to a Vermont party for § 5,700 cash.
The farm is one of the finest in the val

at the price sold.

We chronicle the fact of ex-county
superintendent Xettleton's serious ill
ness with feelings of sorrow and regret.
Mr. Xettleton has ever been a most'en
ergetic and tireless worker in everything
he has undertaken , and consequently
made too heav } * draughts upon a con
stitution already weakened during the
late war's campaigning , and his present
sickness seems to be a general constitu
tional break-down , with slight hopes of
recovery , unless nature revives and re
asserts herself in a positive manner.
In the suit brought before Squii'e Col
vin , last Friday , by Elisha Rowland
against James B. Miller , for damages
and debt , the plaintiff alone offered tes
timony and was duly awarded judgement
in the sum of $93.50. The case was
appealed to the District Court. This is
but one of a series of suits in which
these parties have been involved lately ,
all growing out of a neighborly ( ? ) rack
et , in which pitchforks and other such
playful weapons have figured with some
what uncomfortable prominence. ' 'How
pleasant it is to dwell together in unity. "
The Children's Day exercises at the
M. E. church , last Sunday , were both
interesting and instructive and were par
ticipated in by a large number of
children , while the audience present at
the various exercises during the day
filled the house. The decorations , flow
ers , birds , etc. , were profuse and beau
tiful , while a genuine fountain added
much to the scene. The little children
performed their parts in a creditable
manner and their efforts were apprecia
ted by the adults present. The pastor
and others who had the affair in charge
and who spent much energy and time in
preparing for the occasion are to be
congratulated upon their success *
Elsewhere in this issue we present a
sensible communication from an old set
tler on the "contest question. " The
contesting of claims where the law
HAS BEEcomplied with , thus nutting
the settler or entry-man to a needless
expense , an expense which few are able
to stand , is a manifest outrage , against
which there seems to be little or no re
dress. These contests , we pay , insti-
! tuted in the main bva pack of louncin"
I * I O O
I scavengers , are grievous burdens , which
the honest settler is sometimes forced
to bear , perforce of the operations of
rascals who ought to be in the state's
prison. The rights of honest settlers
J should be protected. * On the-other hand
it is notorious that failures to comply
with the law are numerous. That such
claims should be contested is clearly
lawful and for the best interests of the
country. However , demonstrations ,
1 such as occurred on the Driftwood , re
cently , save in extreme cases , ought
not to bo tolerated.
