A small ala Cuban fíírht too\c plKoa the oti er night up town h ahoiit the same results as occur in the fights on that fnmous inland—no B<;riouR damage.  Rippey merchants are vying with each other as to who can sell kerosene the chwapest—at pteBent prices we can get along without thf sun. moon or star-s, so far as light is concerned.  Miss Nellie Johnson started to Mar-shalltown, Wedtiesday, where she will attend the State Epworih League convention also will visit Mrs. Karnesian, siater of Dr. J. H Shipley, of t'ais place.  Last Friday night Tnrr, SouvKNin waa printed as usual and sent to Rippey at the regular time, leaving the Jeti'erson post-oHice on the same train as it does each wei-k, but the pajiers failed to reach Rippey until Monday afternoon, llie fault must have been with the mi^il agenta on the train or el^e the post master at Wau-kee where the papers are transfered. The delay was quite vexations to our readers and it it occurs aeain, the n-aiter will be presented to the postal autnonties for investigation. Thii postmaster at K'ppey and  Jefferson as well as the pablisher of Tbb SpuvRNiR should not be blamed for their nonarrival.  Last Saturday night was an unusually buoy one to our merchunts until a late hoar fully twenty ti^ams being on the street at 9 o'clock. The fanners are taking advantage of splendid weather to store away their crops, and wait until night before cooling to town to do their trading.  The '*laiig;iiing camera'* the latest thing in the line of amusement that has struck Rippiey, and for á day or two we dreaded to pass along the street for fear of seeing from one to six of the fiendish little instruments leveled at os and—we improved, the first opportunity to "see ourselves as otiiers see us."  The republican rally here Thursday eve-nintr at the hall was one of the most en-Ihusiasric gatherings of the kind ever held in the township. I he hall was packed full and the speakers Messrs. Mahlon Head and C.J.Martin spoke toa most attentive , audience of voters, all desiring to hear the political issues discustied in a fair light, from a business man's standpoint, i he meeting will result in an increase in the republican vote of the township.  At half past ninn o'clock last Tuesday morning our quiet little town was startled by the cry of fire which was soon discovered to be in the third story ot the Rippey House in the southeast corn-r-room. Fortunately it had not gained any headway and by the prompt response ot the bucket brigade the flames were soon squelched. How the fire smarted is a mystery, as there is no stove in the room and no chimney in that part of the house. The frequency with which fireo break out on the north side of the strtet in that block is aggravating as well as alarming.  Miss Nellie Johnson issued cards of invitation to a number of society young gentlemen and their ladies for a Fago parly to be «riven ut her home Friday evening. Miss Nellie waa at^sistedin entertaining by the Misses Hallingby and Taub-man. Several fi'ie sí^lections of vocal and instrumental music were rendered, after which refreshments were served.

Hanger, and Mrs. Sherman, who were invited to come earlier and partake of the birthday dinner—the quantity and quality of which "ye scribe" is amply able to testify from actual experience. It was enough to make one sigh for a gireater frequency of tenth birthdays. At one o'clock the company arrived bringing with th^m n nice rocking chair and a beautiful little lamp. Many other handsome and  useful presents, were also received.
