A pleasant time is reported. A certain young couple residing in Portland recently went to housekeeping. When the young wife was about to prepare the evening meal she found that the most essential part of housekeeping was lacking, viz; provisions, and they were forced to return to the parental roof for their supper. The friends of Miss Lillie Juin, of Portland township, remembered the occasion of nev birthday last Thursday evening, und culled at her home in quite a company. By way of furnishing amusement for the evening, the boys were given a chance tw display their notions of millinery and then a vote of the company was taken as to who had the best looking bat. It was decided that Luther Fairbanks and Will Davison had the neatest liats and they were accordingly awarded the cake, it was decided that Charlie Mann and Willie Grover had the most ridiculous bats.

Mr. Freeman spent the Sabbath in Whittemore. Hay is worth between $7 and $8 on the track here. We saw W. S. Wickham taking out a new wagon the other day. Our blacksmith, Dan Dobson, is kept busy nowadays shoeing horses. Mr. E. 0. Fitz has sold 1120 acres of laud during the last two weeks. Jno. Witmer has sold his house and lot to T. Wroolie of Lura, Minnesota. C. A, Ordway has just received some new sleighs which he holds for sale. Gal Ordway says the thermometer registered 23° below, Saturday morning. E. 0. Fitz, our "rustling" laud agent seems to be kept busy selling land now a- days. Christmas is coming. You'd think so if you saw the holiday goods at Kendall's. Mr. Hodgson, of Burt, was in our town Friday and bought 200 acres of land of Mr. Fitz. Jack Graham, the sheriff elect, was taking in the sights at Ledyard Thanksgiving day. Dunlap Bros, finished threshing their 720 acres of flax Friday which yielded them 9500 bushels. II. Meeker started for his home in DCS Moines on Monday. He says he will drive through in four days. A Bible reading society w&s organized last Sunday evening which we understand is to meet ever}' week. The first message ever taken off the telegraph wires at Ledyard was taken last Saturday. Hurrah for Ledyard! Dr. Cutler was in town the other day having been called to N. B. Jones'resi- dence by the illness of Miss Emily Sargent. We saw F. S. Jenks daubing paint on his new livery barn. That's right, a building that's worth owning is worth painting. Let's see! We heard Will Freeman giving a little puff about his husking corn, wouldn't wonder if he co.uld make the ears fly, either. We have the impression that Mr. and Mrs. Wickwirc, of Bancroft,. took their thanksgiving turkey with Mr. and Mrs. Wood of this place. The blessed railroad company gave us an additional cause for thanksgiving, in entering Mr. Resor upon his duties at the new depot on Thursday. Rev. Luce arrived a quarter of an hour late Sunday with the apology that he had chicken for dinner. He preached well enough, however, to make up for it. Now, if you want to send a loving message to that far-away sweetheart, remember the lines are in at the Ledyard depot and the smiling agent stands ready to serve you. Ernest Arnold, young son of John Arnold, while playing around the threshing machine last Saturday, undertook to stop the fans wirh his hand. His arm was drawn in and badly broken, j At the spelling school last Tuesday evening, James Kendall carried off the honors. Prof. Sifert has them write when spelling instead of, the old method of standing up and spelling down. Thanksgiving day was observed by many of our families in. the usual manner. The traditional roast turkey found its way to many tables, and notwithstanding the iciness of the atmosphere some of our citizens went so far as to indulge in ice cream. Certainly Ledyard people have much for which to be thankful. The year has been one of exceptional prosperity. The early drought that, threatened us has not proved fatal, no calamitous storms have visited our country, and as a result, an adundant harvest has been gathered. Old Mr. Reese who lives four miles southeast of Ledyard, was seriously injured in a runaway last Wednesday evening. He had come into town for coal and had just driven his team up to Fred Calkins' coal sheds when the north bound .passenger train pulled in. The team became uneasy and Mr. Reese un dertook to hold them by the bits, first unhitching one of the tugs. As the train pulled out the team became thoroughly frightened and started to run, the tongue coming down almost immediately. Mr. Reese was carried about forty rods holding to the bits. Finally losing his hold he was run over by both horses and wagon. He was picked up in au unconscious condition and carried into Fred Calkins' lumber office. A man was din- patched to Bancroft for a doctor and; Mr. Reese was taken home in the course of a couple hours. It is thought that he sustained some broken ribs besides internal injuries. He is a man over sixty years of age. "Listed," as the brokers say, at "100 Doses Oae Dollar," Hood's Sarsapflrilla is always « fair L. A. FITZ & LONG Real Estate, Loans —And- INSURANCE.
