JULIUS GUFFY, dentist, will be in Grand River every fourth week, next date being Feb. l7th to 20th inclusive.

We have fine sleighing now and this will be a good time to get your wood in for the year if the ice is not too bad.

DAVID SHAW, of Hopeville, moved his family here last week and will live on the Bert Baker property, owned by JAKE SWITZER.

C.H. CHAPMAN and wife returned from camp in the woods where C.H. got enough wood chopping to last him for a while. They find their new house much more commodious than a tent or a log hut. CHARLEY has a good post and the largest wood pile in town.

REV. JOHN EDWARDS and wife are rejoicing over the arrival of a fine boy at their home.

REV. E.L. TILLOTSON, of Dakota, has held a series of very interesting meetings at the M.E. Church the past week. He is well known here, as he served in the Arkansas campaign with many of our neighbors here, who are much pleased to see him and hear him preach. We are glad those stormy times are over but they will live long in our memory when the heroes who tell of them have gone to their rest where there are no old heroes around here yet and may they remain long to teach the lesson of sacrifice and patriotism to our young.

N.C. NANCE has shipped his household goods to Kansas where he goes to make his future home. He has not sold his farm here yet but thinks of buying there.

J.A. WELDON has a fine cream separator that saves him much work and money. Many of our farmers will get them in the future as they will pay for themselves in a short time. W. WADSWORTH and J.F. MORRELL both expect to get one.

Do not shoot the quails and prairie chickens now or there will be none left next year.

WM. GREEN will build a new barn on his farm in the spring, having ordered the pattern last week.

Uncle CHARLEY FUQUA is out again and able to see his friends.

JOE and ESSIE SHIELDS and MADISON CHICK are on the sick list. MR. CHICK is suffering much from rheumatism.

Uncle HAM YOUNG is laid up with rheumatism but we hope he will be out soon.

MRS. HARRY WELDON is improving right along and we hope will be able to move in their new house as soon as it is completed.

CARRIE BRADSHAW has charge of the F.A. Greenland livery barn now and keeps everything in good order.

W.C. OVERHOLTZER bought a l900 Junior Washer which will make his wife glad for they run easy and do the work well.

FRANK BURCHETT and PHIL DAILEY had business in our town last Saturday.

REV. C.C. WILKINS returned from his charge at Hopeville last Saturday, where he had been holding a revival for several weeks.

Foley's Honey and Tar is best for croup and whooping cough, contains no opiates, and cures quickly. Careful mothers keep it in the house. For sale by L.P. Van Werden.
