Thursday evening on 27 from A ins-
worth where he had been holding a

Co. court house and granted J. W.
Smyser a divorce from Edna Smyser.
There was some shooting in town a
few nights ago when some of the boys
got bowled up a little. We think
there were some pretty badly scared
people in town about the time the
popping began , especially those near
est the bullets. It began with a noisy
crowd and ended with a rough house.
flW. D , Morgareidge one of the old
pioneers -Cherry County came to
town Monday and closed a deal for
the Beers and Clark land near him
and will now have a good ranch of
1600 acres. On this Mr. Morgareidge
can cut about 500 tons of hay and can
run a thousand head of cattle on his
range which is mostly fenced. Mr. M
has lived in Cherry Co. since the
spring of ' 84 and is as well known as
most any of Cherry Co. citizens , and
now that he has a good ranch and has
built up a nice home for his family he
is ready to leave it and contemplates
moving to town in the near future
where he can further enjoy the fruits
of his labors in the years when it was
a hardship to live in a western fron
tier. We bid this family welcome to
our fair city and commend them to
our citizens as worthy people of which
any town or community might justly
feel nroud. Mr. Morgareidge is still
a democrat and proud tfi tb& same.

Monday , Geo. Elliott began moving
his mammoth stock of drugs and
toilet articles into the new building
just completed by Frank Brayton
under the Fraternal hall building.
The room is much more spacious than

there will be room for lots of custom
ers and plenty of room for goods gen
erally found in a drug store.
Harry Hilsinger , R. S. Dennis and
Geo. Hershey went out to theirihome-
steads last Sunday. They're a jolly

ranch. Tney didn't brin ' the editor
in any spuds , turnips , cabbage or
beets from last years crop , nor did
they bring a sample from the hen

A Small Fire
Yesterday forenoon while Pete Sim
ons was driving past the livery stable
of Stnyser and Hammond he noticed
smoke coming out of the office in the
south east corner and also some com
ing out near the roof. Stopping bis
team Mr. Simons took a hammer and
tried to knock off the boards on the out
side of the barn but soon discovered
that he could get to the fire better on
the inside which was burning between
the laths acd the Weather boarding
having caught from the stove which
was near by. Mr. Smyser was in his
dwelling near by and hearing the ham
mering of Mr. Simons ran out and
soon had the tire put out which hadn't
burned very long and did very little
damage. As is usual in such cases
there was no one about or there would
not have been a story. The stove was
full of ; coal that apparently wouldn't
burn when it was needed and when it
got started there was no one to shut off
