The common school exercises of Washington and Liberty township were held in the Bowlus opera House in this place last saturday night and despite the fact that the weather was bad the opera House was filled to its fullest capacity.

William Mcferren wife of William Mcferren the janitor of the court House was Given a genuine Surprise last sunday by about 60 of her friends neighbors and relatives who remembered that it was her 55th birthday. On saturday evening her husband wanted to replenish the larded by buying a Quah Tity of meat fruits and other things that go to make up a sunday dinner but mrs. Mcferren who never gave her approaching birthday a single thought argued that a Small amount would be sufficient As they were not expecting any special company. Along about 11 00 the guests began to arrive and they found the Good woman preparing a Small amount of noodles just about enough for a right hungry Man but sufficient for her family As none of them Are very Hearty eaters. Each guest or the most of them brought baskets and they were filled to the brim with everything that any one could wish to eat. After All had arrived that had been invited the Good things were spread out and it is useless to say that her son Lloyd was the first fellow Down at the table and the last one to leave which plainly demonstrates that there was plenty to eat and some to spare As Lloyd is one of those Fellows who knows a Good thing when he sees it.

He resigned within five minutes of the announcement of the final vote of the Chicago convention and president Wilson accepted his resignation by special messenger so that he was a Plain citizen with no official position when he accepted the nomination which shows that he is a better Man than some of his party thought he was. We Are glad he was so prompt about this for it shows he has a. Keen sense of the situation and will probably act in a patriotic manner upon other problems As they come up if he is elected president. We want to go on record now As not being Able to see any danger to the american people or american institutions in the election of or.
