Charles O.Wallter of Lincoln avenue.—Denver liepublicitii, Mttreh I'J.  011ITUAUY.  Wednesday morning Mr. Hiram Odell, for many years a prominent citizen of this place died at his home, No. 254 Keystone ave;nue, of heart trouble. The deceased was born Oct. 24, 1821, near Cananrlaigua, N. Y., from which place he removed to River Forest in 1H70. In early life Mr. Odell was an educator and in his later years a successful and highly esteemed business man. He identified himself with the Methodist Episcopal church in his young manhood and for forty-six years had been an active member, holding ¿¡for many yeark the y.ositions of sieward. class leader and Sunday school superintendent, and he died trusting in Christ.  Mr.Jldell-suJEFarcjd-fl. slight str-eke- s>{ paralysis two years ago and was never afterward entirely well, though he had been confined but a short time to his house. lie was identified with tho early history of lliver Forest and always took an active interest in everything pertaining to the welfare of the village.  The funeral services were held at noon to-day from his residence, and the remains were taken to Rose Hill for interment.  C¥-Sè#E5.Msà  It is now drawing near to election time. So far we know of no candidates for village honors, but it would be well for the citizens to think about this matter and to push forward good men. There is to be considerable improving done here this year, and what is done should be done right. Good permanent improvements are what we want. Our streets must be fixed and they should be fixed in a good, substantial manner, and include curbiug. We are behind other towns on the street 'question and should commence fixing them up gradually There are about twenty-five new houses in the course of construction in May wood now. This will be doubled before the end of the year.  RIDGELANI).   a P eh  MAYWÒ0D.  Ordinances are being prepared for laterals ou Fourth avenue, Sixth avenue, Seveuth avenue and Eighth avenue, between Railroad and Lake Btreets. This will complete the sewer system on the North Side.  The young people of the Baptist church are making arrangements to give a musical and literary entertainment for the benefit of the church the last of this month.  The funeral services of Mr. Goodrich were held at the residence last Saturday at 1 o'clock. Mr. Goodrich was taken with paralysis several months ago and has been very low ever since. He was followed to his last resting place by a large number of friends. The Rev. Mr. EIIib preached a very appropriate and touching sermon,—--------  As near as we can find out the people who are trying to get the right of way on Chicago avenue are 6nly doing so on a speculation/as the electric road have the franchise for right of way through Cicero on that street. It would be well to look them up thoroughly beforegiving them any thing.  Dr. iiuggles has rented the office Mr. Herman Klug is building on r ifth avenue.  Some of the young people are starting a fortnightly club, we wish them success.  Mr. Irving has moved back to the city.  Miss Annie Mickle has removed her dressmaking parlor around the corner and ia now-located i» the .old Foster  bUildillg. ...........  There are several eases of scarlet fever in and near Maywood.  Don't forget the concert at the Pres-bvteMan church the evening of the 22d given by Glazer's Carolinian Co. The entertainment promises to be a good  1  one. ■  Mrs. E. H. Pitkin left for Wellesly Monday to »pend a fow weeks with her daughter.  Los Amigo meets Tuesday evening next.  Friday afternoon at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Blatchford, the Rev. and Mrs, W. R. Bartlett were given a reception which was very largely attended.  The Cicero and Proviso Street Railway company will shortly becrin work on the extensions mentioned in our last issue.  An athletic ground and summer garden with concerts every evening will probably be opened at Harlem during the coming season.  Mrs. Frank Mitchell is entertaining a brother for a few weeks.  The Rev. W. It. Rartlett preached Sunday morning and evening at the CO ffffi-egat ioiiiit e Iiuf eh.  Los Amigo, it is announced, will shortly disband for the season.  Considerable building is going on in town with more to come. During the pas two years there lias been a great improvement in the village.  Mrs Arthur Stone of Milwaukee, who had been visiting here, returned to her home Tuesday.  -There was a real old-fashiouedTown meeting in the hall Inst Monday night. The large turn out of representative citizens Bhowed that interest in Town affairs still lives. Mr. George J. Charlton was called to the chair and Mr. A. II. Hamilton chosen secretary. The young-bloods were there and the old bloods too, and after an exchange of civilities it was found that both sides were loyal to Ridgeland. Speeches were made by E. A. Cummings, A. Hamilton, E. H. Pitkm añd S. 13. Attridge. Mr. Butters was asked to explain the drainage situation, which he did in detail and to everybody's satisfaction. Mr. Cummings elaborated on the record of the electric railway which, he said, had already added hundreds of thousands of dollars to the value of real estate in Cicero, an increase that had not cost property owners one cent. It has caused the paving of Lake and Madison streets, and has expended 8100,000 in paving its tracks aloné. Mr. Cummings also_____paid ' his respects  to the anmexationiBts, taking up e very one of their arguments in detail and toppling them over like a row of bricks. At the conclusion of the speaking a ballot was taken for delegates and the following were chosen; E, A. Cum mings. H. H. Spooner, A.H, Hamilton, S. 1). Attridge. Alternates, H, Coombs, A.
