J. N. GATES, our diminutive Clerk of Court, and Dr. LAYTON of Leon, attended
lodge Friday night.

Miss Anise EALS and her cousin, Mrs. WOOD of Weldon, were guests of Mrs.
Almira JUDD last Sunday.

Mr. and Mrs. C. W. HOFFMAN and the children were in town over Monday night,
guests of Mr. and Mrs. J. O. PARRISH.

Tommy F. ROYAL went to Illinois Wednesday where he will remain about four
months. Tommy is a first class boy and a hard worker.

Mrs. Mary HUDDLESON, of Hancock Co., Ill., came a few days ago and expects to
remain during the summer with her daughter, Mrs. METZ and son Pete.

Elmo EVANS came home Sunday morning. He is suffering with a bad felon on the
second finger of his right hand. He says the miners went out on a strike at
Cincinnatti Saturday noon.

Rev. BEER and J. T. MITCHELL were at Des Moines last week attending
Presbytery. Mr. BEER was elected moderator and received many compliments for the
ability displayed as presiding officer.

R. A. STEWART came over from Tingley last Thursday and returned home Sunday
accompanied by his sister-in-law, Miss Nora NORTHRUP. We are glad to hear that
he is steadily improving in health.

The dry weather continues. The farmers are getting ready to plant corn. The
fall plowing is in splendid condition for planting. Grass is growing but it
needs a warm rain.

The school year closed with appropriate exercises at the Normal and Public
school buildings Friday. The exercises were good and showed that the several
teachers had taken great pains in arranging the same.

We are informed that we are to have a new restaurant in town. A gentleman
from Humeston has rented the room formerly occupied by W. H. STILES for
hardware, and as soon as it is placed in shape will open up a restaurant.
