Quite a number of our people are intending to attend the dedication of the new church at Corwith next Sunday. Corwith Crescent: We took a trip across tho country to Wesley last week, and found the roads leading to that town somewhat blind and misleading, but succeeded in getting there without going more than eight miles farther than necessary. Arriving there we found "mfne host" of the Sherman hfuse ready and willing to entertain us—for a consideration—and after getting warm and a good dinner started out to view the town. Nearly every branch of trade and commerce was fairly represented by good active business. There seemed to be quite a lively trade doing in grain and hay, and upon inquiry we found prices nearly as favorable for the producers as in more pretentious towns. The citizens with whom we talked were a unit in saying that Corwith should have the ridge road, and were surprised that decided steps had not been taken ore this by our citizens to secure it, Among the diffent lines of business followed we mention dry goods, groceries, hardware, cabinet and upholstering, feed and livery, drug, and other stores. The citizens seemed social and friendly and speak kindly of our town and its people. Mr. and Mrs. D. H. Hutchins start for California tho last of this week.
