THE WOLF SLINKS ON The bright young man who came hotfooting it into the sheep-fold yelling "Wolf!" at a time when the wolf was going about his business over in the next county has an uifassa liable reputation as one if history's prize numbskulls. It is edifying to reflect, however, that his reputation would bo even worse if he had failed to come running with the alarm ayhen the wolf oetually did show Up. An overexcituble sentry is a good deal better than a sentry who puts in his time pounding his ear. Theac deep reflections are pro- '.voked by a cable dispatch from London which points out that (he British government has nrndc Up its mind that here is going to be a general European war inside of four years, and is getting ready to draw cards in it.

On the same day James Tiney, farmer, and Miss Edith Wih were united for life, and soon fter became permanent residents of 1-bany. Mr. Nanney died a few yclgVs ago. Mrs. Nanney continues to reside fh the Nanney home of Cala-pooia street, at Fourth. There were three children, ncr Sirs.

Joe Clark and Florence E. Cowan, were united in marriage the same mSnth. Joe was a brother of the late Mrs. Vanny Smith, Mrs. W. A. Cox. Mrs. Geo. W. Young and Fire Chief Henry Clark.
