It is an unusual thing for a church to catch a fever of this kind, but the evidence is there, unmistakably. The cement steps have been rebuilt or repaired, the brickwork has been pointed up, a flag polo has been Installed, a five-light electrolier erected, porch boxes put on the steps and filled with flowers, and proper signs installed. It makes a great change in the corner, and Indicates life. Rev. Koblln Is so pleased with the change he Is preparing to celebrate the event by holding special brighten-up services next Sunday evening out of doors. Lend your smiling countenance to the beauty of the scepe If you approve of enterprise and good appearances. If the church would hold a bee now and gravel the street all around things would look  somewhat finished.  »-►  Byron G. Boos Seriously 111  Byron Q.

Organization was perfected by choosing Geo. Schnleders chairman and W. J. Rodda secretary.  The principal business of the con' ventlon was the filling out of the ticket, which the primary failed to do, only Rose McCormick for recorder and T. F. Lynch for country attorney having been nominated. Nominations as follows were made:  Representative—Geo. Schnleders  Auditor—Z. T. Carroll.  Treasurer—Peter Tolan.  Clerk of Court»—Chas. Pattee.
