The Ladies Aid Society will meet with Mrs II. Goetoh next Thursday; the afternoon will be spent, in quilting. All rntSm- bers requested to be present. A little son of Rev. Thomas is down with the measles. It is probable there .will be'more cases of it as we understand the little fellow was feeling 'badly the last dfiy he was at school. "Miss Butler, who came in on the morning train from Emmetsburg Monday, is reported to have frozen her face and hands quite badly in attempting to walk otit-to her home some two miles north of tdwn. The funeral of Mrs. Bates, an elderly lady whose home was between this place and Rodman, took place Tuesday at the Baptist church. The funeral sermon wns preached by Rev. Thomas, the interment taking place at the Whittemore cemetery The hardware store formerly owned by A. Schmidt, now bears the firm name of Hanna & Wilson, two of our enterprising young men who have purchased the stock of goods and rented the building. Success to the new firm. Mr. Schmidt will hereafter give his entire attention to the sale of farm machinery in which he deals largely. A number of comments both favorable and unfavorable have come to our ears in regard to the action of our mayor in causing Marshal Smith to stable teams left standing in the street this cold weather. If the mayor errs in this matter at all we are glad to nee him err on the side of mercy. Perhaps he has read somewhere that "the merciful man is merciful to his beast." The farmers of this vicinity met at Schmidt's Hall lust Saturday to agitate the question of building a farmers elevator at this place. The project was very favorably received and about $1,00.0 worth ef stock was subscribed for at tie meeting and committees appointed to take charge of the matter, It is thought there will be no trouble in disposing of 200 shares at §25 each. The building of this elevator means an increase of pros perity to Whittemore and surrounding country.

There seems to be an orderly in/attack in roots that cannot be accounted for. When the seed sprouts and the stem starts upward to make the trunk, one bud pushes down into the earth to form a top root. What it is that gives the order for one to push up and one to push clown is incomprehensible. But, more than this, while the top root is descending deep into the ground, as if • to anchor tho tree securely against wind and storm, other roots start to grow horizontally just beneath the surface of the ground. These surface roo,ts are at first but mere fibers. When the autumn arrives, and the leaves fall, most of these fibers die also, leaving only a few to live over, and these become permanent surface roots. We know why some live to become permanent roots, as against the thousands which die. We say they are gifted with greater vital power. They were able to get more nutrition than the others, and nutrition to some extent means vigorous life—but in what way this ordering of sorne roots to go down as anchors, and the others to spread out near the surface where food is, to act as feed' ers, is just as deep an unsolved problem a's it was hundreds of years ago.—Thomas Meehan in Philadelphia Ledger. .TAS. ttditor.

Dr. Lucas was seated among a small assemblage of friends in Postmaster Thompson's room, making an honest effort to forget that the thermometer was hugging the nineties. He said, "1 once knew a minister to lose his pulpit by telling the truth." Being asked to explain lie said: "While stationed in Iowa I became acquainted with a minister who was n, forcible speaker, but was deficient in education, and occasionally committed some grave misdemeanors against the king's English. One Sunday evening, .while speaking rapidly, he committed a, gross assault on Lindley Murray. "No sooner had the sentence escaped his lips than he stopped and said: 'I am aware that my education is deficient. 1 regret that 1 did not have the advantage of good schools while a boy. If I had been more fortunate in that regard I would now be preaching to a more intelligent congregation.' The minister told the truth, but that was the last time he preached in that church."—Indianapolis News. Objects on the Colorado Desert.

Let there be a full attendance, as there can be only one more meeting of this board. Mr. Graves commenced work on his new sigric'iiltunii building last week, but the cold weather h:is made further work impossible, The building is to be, ',24x60 with 18 foot posts. The proposed new railroad is cause for considerable talk. The surveyors were in town this week and it is now plain to all that an actual survey is'being made. There tire reasons to expect that they will strike this place, though at present they promise to cross about two miles south. The people of Ledyard ought to take steps toward building a church. The school house is no (place for gatherings, when school is in session. Ir. always leaves more or less rubbish and besides there are-those who cannot keep their lingers off the books and material, and worst of all, tobacco chewers never^think to leave 'their filly weed out of doors.

He finally strategy, and finding a house that suited him, called on the agent. "Have you any children'r" inquired the agent. "1 have, sir, there are four out in the cemetery." "Oh, that's too bad. Well, you may have the house." A few days after that the diplomat moved in. The agent passed by, and noticing several children in the yard, stopped and took the man to task.
