One man said at breakfast that he could see a biff change in me since I came. People come here, get their health, go back home, sell out and move here to live. This is a very rough, stony country. I would hate to live here but would rather live here than be dead somewhere else. Were my wife here I would be like the preacher that the bear had up a tree—stay right here for awhile," at least. Say, you know how it was when we used to hook watermelons. How they worked on the kidneys. They are nothing compared, to this water. We get plenty of exercise. Oh, yes, I must tell you of one Mace got on me. A fellow asked me if I was a minister. He said my partner told him so. i think I will have him arrested for cruelty to animals.

A very pretty wedding occurred Wednesday at high noon at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John McDonnell, of English township, when their daughter, Georgia, was united in marriage to Elmer E. Wilson. Promptly at the appointed hour the wedding march was played . by the groom's sister, Miss Madge, preceded by a favorite love song by the groom's cousin, Oscar Stone, of Des Moines. Rev. Netherly pronounced the words that united the lives and fortunes of this happy couple in the presence of about fifty invited guests. Following" congratulations a sumptuous wedding dinner was served. "The bride was dressed in a light grey traveling suit. She is a cultured' and refined young, lady pleasantrin her manner and will make a worthy help meet. The groom Is a son of Hiram Wilson, of English, township, a prosperous, y°UDii farmer and worthy in every respect of the lady he has chosen. They left the game day for a visit with friends In Omaba, Kansas City wd other points before. settling'/dpifn to;the duties lite. They will ireiide on a farmOnly Mortals, After All. The Methodist conference at Perry paid president Taft a splendid tribute last Monday when Dr. Stuntz told of the good work Mr.'■Taft has performed iu the Philippine Islands. The ovation lasted ten minutes. And yet there are those who, in their eagerness to discredit the president for political purposes, have forgotten his great work in Cuba, the Philippines, Panama, as envoy extraordinary to Rome, and as secretary of war.—Corning Union-Republican. All of which goes to show that the average Methodist preacher is as fickle as other mortals. It was only two short years ago that 75 per cent of the Methodist clergy were denouncing Mr. Taft for his non-Christian, or Unitarian views, declaring that they would not vote for him; that—well, why enumerate. Here in Chariton the pastor of the Methodiit church from that time to this has never failed to "shoot it into" President Taft, but now we lind the conference lauding him. They were just as much out of place two years ago as they are now, and just as much out of place now as they were two years ago. It is the same Taft now that existed then. The Leader has no criticisms to olTer on Mr. Taft's administration. We honor and respect him. A man with his religious views is as apt to deal justly as the more orthodox, but we do think if the recent conference did right at Perry they should send an apology to President Taft for the abuse they haye heaped upon him in the past.Society Events.
