Edwin Buker was recovering from lung fever.

Mrs. L. Sperbeck received the sad intelligence of the death of her sister at Spirit Lake, Iowa.

Acting City Marshal Dingley resigned on Saturday and F.M. Carter was appointed.

Dave Shanks caught nine coons, four on Monday and five on Tuesday.

Cheap John left Saturday with his goods and chattels for Athens.

"Baby Mine" is the loving ditty that Claude Carter sang himself to sleep with on the balmy evenings, and said to one and all, "go 'way trouble, I'm all right.

George Ludington, thinking they did not have anything to eat in Greenwood, and who was afraid he would get hungry Saturday night, brought his lunch, in the shape of fried cakes strung upon a string, with him, but when he saw the tables spread and groaning under their mighty weight, he succumbed and gave the whole thing away. He presented the friend cakes to Mrs. Henry Johnson as a memento, who thought seriously of sending them to the World's Fair.
