the sympathy of the entire community.

The M. E. Aid Society will meet with Mrs. John MCKIBBEN, Mrs. M. WEMPLE and
Mrs. L. W. SULLIVAN on Friday afternoon, Sept. 29, 1893, at the home of Mrs.

They will also have a short literary program, and several new things in the way
of amusements. Everybody cordially invited.

There was a time Saturday night. A gang of boys and young men engaged in
that which would cause a Fiji Islander to blush with shame. One young fellow
received a dose of concentrated lye in his face. Luckily for him, the lye struck
the lower part of his face or he would have been unable to have seen the sun
the next morning. As it is one of his eyes was pretty badly injured and the
side of his face. A new suit of clothes was also spoiled. The young man looks
at the incident quite philosophically, he says that if he had been home in
bed it wouldn't have happened.

Sunday about noon C. B. FRASE's mare was hitched to a post near his store,
and Robt. PIPER's horse and cart were standing hitched on the opposite side of
the street. The wind blew a large piece of white paper under Charley's mare
causing her to break loose, and as she was making the turn the buggy to which
the mare was hitched locked wheels with Robert's cart, pulverizing the cart and
breaking a wheel of the buggy. Mr. PIPER's horse broke loose and started west
for home and the mare and buggy started east. We believe neither one of the
animal was injured. Too great care cannot be exercised in regard to loose
papers thrown out, they are sure to scare horses.
