D  River-  Permanently Located at side, California.  We are in receipt of tho following communication from Henry N. Mills of Riverside, Calif.  "This is the iinest place on earth, except Clinton, fine weather and plenty of work of all kinds except brick. All of the homes here are wood, foundations only about six inches high. Groceries are the same, take them all around, as in Clinton. Butter and eggs are 45 and 50 cents but the vegetables., are just one half the price here as they are in Clinton. Apples, potatoes, sugar and ail staple articles are just the same in price as they are back in Indiana. Wood is $14 a cord and coal $10 a ton but the way they get around that is by burning oil in furnaces and boilers, which is the same as coal at $2.50 a ton and in cooking we use gas, which is $1.35, about equal to coal at $2.50. So you see living here is just about the same as in Clin-on. Wages are good, carpentering $3.50 for 8 hours, plumbing $3.50 to $4, barbers same as in Clinton, clerks from $2 to $4 ^r week higher than in Clinton, brick masons 80 cents to $1 per hour. A residence in Clinton worth $2000 would cost $2700 here.  I expect to make this my home for I have not been troubled with asthma since I came; only very light the first day or two. I feel better than I have felt for five years. My house hold goods ar  rived just 13 days from the time they left Clinton. I have rented a fine 8 room hou.se with gas. light and water for $22. per month. I pay the lights but all the rest furnished. You can get a 5 room house with bath and light for $15, just as cheap as Clinton.  H. N. Mills  The Canning- Factory  The canning factory for this city is now an assured feet. Enough stock has already been subscribed. The finishing touches are now being put on and suffice it to say that ere many moons Clinton will have a canning factory.  An engine ran into the spout of the water tank, Sunday, and bent it in such a shape as to "let all the water run out of the tank. It was necessary to have the fire boys ,ake the hose and fill the tanks of iwo engines to keep them from going dead. For awhile the rail-i-oad track was flooded.  The scenery for Robert Sherman's new production, "The Vil-lawe Vagabond", is said to be very beautiful and the people will be given an opportunity to judge for themselves as the production will be given at the Clinton opera on Saturday, Nov. 17. Prices 35 and 5o cents.  The Knights & Ladies of Security of this city initiated 20 new members into their order, Tuesday evening, A team from Terre Haute did the work. After the initiation supper was served.  STATE OF )  In the Venaillion Circuit December term, 19UG.  Maud Call Kelley vs. Pearl Kelley. Complaint No, .581."j.  Now comes plaintifi'. by M. G.
