household goods by fire, on Wednesday.
An organ and some chaiis is about all

house after the fire was discovered.
Some time before, they had been shoot

is supposed that a part of a firecracker
had blown under the porch, and every
thing being dry, started the fire.
From the Gazette.
Those who have been cutting wheat
this week claim that the bundles are
heavy, which is a sign that the berry is
plump, and many of them.
If you have a home and are out of
debt, don't fret and worry yourself and
wife into the grave for the sake of mak
ing money. You have only one life to
live, and it is brief at best Take a little
pleasure and comfort as you go day by
day, and try to do a little good to others.
A morbid, insatiate desire to posses the
earth, to grab everything in sight, is at
the foundation of more misery tbanal
most any thing. Wealth alone will ne
ver keep memory green; a good life and
kind actions will.

Thursday morning the heaviest rain
of the year fell in this locality. The
fall was so heavy that roads were turned
into rivers, and many of them badly
washed . Northwest ol here the fall was
heavier, the Looking Class raised until
the water was over the railroad
track between here and Genoa, requiring
section men to put in the best part of the
night, and the freight in the morning
took up cinders to' repair any damage.
Right around Monroe there waa a little
hail, some of the gardens being oat bad

other work. The work of invoicing the
stock will be completed this week and
the store turned over to the new prop

in charge, and iu this he has made no
mistake, as Charlie is one of the best

injuries were not inongnt io oe lauu,
but later he took a turn for the worse.
Mr. Swisher resided in and uear Monroe

from starvation and other causes, and
among those who thnsly suffered was S.
E. Vaught, who lost every bee he owned.

recently surprised to discover that a
swarm of bees had taken possession of
one of them. A day or two latere
swarm moved into another, and this

Don't try to be the town humorist.
The town humorist acquires a reputaion
in a short time that he thinks he must
maintain, and as a consequence he soon
becomes a burden of bis friends that is
hard to bear. The town humorist makes
himself so much of a bore that when his
friends see him coming they cross the
street to avoid him, or sneak ont the
back door and hang around in the alley
nntil he is safely ont of the way. Only
about one man in ten million is a nat
ural humorist but about one man in
every ten thinks he is, and feels it his
duty to "entertain" his friends whenever
he meets them, with the result that they
feel like yelling for the police every time
they come in contact with him. If you
want to be liked and respected by your
fellow citizens, avoid with all your might
being considered the town humorist.

The big public question, this year will
be road improvements. It seems stran
ge that there would be any "opposition
party" to those who want better roads,
but if you think there is no opposition,
start a road campaign in your locality
and find out. As a matter of fact, tbe
road problem is of far more importance
to the farmer than either tbe tariff or
silver questions. A good road coats
money. It is a business investment re
quiring a large outlay of cash at first,
and tbe interest on this investment comes
back not only directly in the form of
cash, but indirectly, as the farmer along
the road is able to save horse power in
hauling his crops to market. The chief
question is, how is the money to be
raised? Who is to handle and pay it
out? It i a financial matter rather than
a qneation of engineering skill. It

every echoolbouse in the land.
