Better than a hundred persons were present at the dinner which was spread under the trees in the yard. Most of the guests spent the entire day which was enjoyed by all. So many men of the country serving in the army has had a wholesome effect on the country’s sanitation. In the army cantonments every scrap of filth, cigar and cigarette stubs, burnt matches and scraps of paper must be kept off the grounds. Every morning these things had to be picked up until and men learned not to strew them around. They got into the habit of thro wing their scraps in the place for scraps and not around over the grounds. Most of these men brought these habits of cleanliness heme with them and are imntinuing to practice them which is making the country more sanitary and healthy. As they continue to practice the habits formed while in the army the younger generations will pick up the habits and some of the older ones will catch the spint of it and the eoontry will profit from the soldiers.

It is not a necessity with them, but is simply a habit and a nuisance. It is an inconvenience to everbyody with whom they have business dealings.

In the city people are unmolested by prying and gossiping neighors, they do not need to worry for fear their actions will be noticed and commented upon, but when a man in the city is down and out be is a friendless, for no one” takes an interest in himl The inhabitants of small towns, however may gossip and be gossiped about; they may pry into things which are of no concern to them; they may tattle and quarrel, but when one of their number is in need of help he is sure of finding it. His neighbors prove to be the truest friends in the world. ^ - P Mrs. Ellen Harvey died Sunday at the home of her mother, Susan Fowler Fresh candy at Wisdom’s. We will have a car of salt in soon.

We have all noticed that some fruit trees begin to bear the first year after they are set out while others go on for years before they start bearing. We were told a few day ago that to gauge the time for the trees to bear is to set them out with tbe first days of a new moon. If you want them to bear the first year, set them the first day of the new moon. If they are wanted to b^ar the second year set them the sec-tJnd day and so on. We are not vouching for the correctness of this recipe but give it to our readers for what it is worth. Try it this fall when you go to set fruit trees and see how it pana out.

The ball game at Riverside Park Sunday between the Plainvilie Allstar team and the locals, was probably as warmly contested game as was ever played on the local diamond. After playing ten innings and the legal closing hour upon them, the score stood 5 to 5. No game played here this season has been played over as many times by the fans as this one. All the visitors need to be a league team, the dopsters have it, is a pitcher the equal of Winslow’s Spradlin. Tbe visitors’ pitcher was the weakest part of the team. The way tbe gang did play team work was tbe admiration of every Ipcal fan. Another part of the dope is that if the local catcher had been in a class with Spradlin the visitors would have gone home with their feathers dragging. Fans all enjoyed the game as the teams seemed to be weak in about tbe same proportion.' A social was given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ora A Ashby Monday night in honor of their daughter Cleda’s seventeenth birthday. The house was decorated suitably for the occasion. The dining room was decorated in pink and white, the birthday cake was pink and white with seventeen candles. The evening was spent in games. Pink ice cream and cake were served.

Sometimes people in the country complain of the night , noises—the croaking of frogs, hooting of owls, crowing of roosters and other nocturnal sounds; but do youvcver think of the noises disturbing the sleep of the people of the cities? Street cars are clanging their way past the residence all night long, taxicabs are honking their way over the pavements, the steam cars are shrieking their way into the city continually, and then, about three o’clock in the morning the milk man starts charging down the alleys, tramping up the steps in their heavy shoes and rattling the bottles outside the door. Yes, noises in the country may be bad but they are not so hideous as those in the city. in Cato where she has been making her home for several years.

He has been in the army service for the past eight years. During the war he did not get any foreign service but was a busy man on this side, laying out • ’ rifle ranges and teaching the marines how to handle the rifle. Young Wiggs has the distinction of having no superior officers except the secretary of the navy over him during the war. He received all his orders from the secretary. He begged during the war to get over and bad the promise to go shortly when the armistice was signed. He did splendid work for the country during the progress of the war.    P ■i  P wife of James Mrs. Mabel Burns, Burns, died early Wednesday mqrning at their home south of town. She had been sick for many months of tuberculosis. Only since this spring have they lived in the country, having lived in town since their marriage until Mr. Burns bought the place south of town. Deceased is a daughter of Frank S. Bee of Velpen. She was born when the fanaily lived near the Flat Creek church. September 12, 1892 and would have been 27 years old this September coming. A few years ago she married Mf^. Bums. To them one child was born, William Edison, now 22 months old. Surviving besides the husband and little son are one sister. Miss Anna Bee, the father, Frank S.

We have hau our community chautauqua on all week. It opened Sunday afternoon with the Hugh Anderson Quintette which rendered a pleasing program, in the evening they opened the program after which Jeanette Kling gave her dramatic recital of “Country Cousins.’’ The Emerson Winters Company occupied the platform Tuesday afternoon and evening in the entertainment line. Andrew H. Harn-ly gaVe his lecutre on “Parasites” and in the evening the Floyds entertained us with their magic, illusion and mind reading. The Monday program was about as fine all around chautauqua program as we have ever seen put on. The Junior chautauqua was a success all the way through. The crowds *at this, tbe second year’s chautauqua, were much larger than last year. Tbe people are fast falling into the chautauqua idea. Last year the promoters of the chautauqua lost $10 each but this year, while there will be a small deficit, it will be much smaller than last year. Whether we will continue the chautauqua has not been decided when this issue went to press. Whether ft is or not the community has been greatlyi benefited by having eo much fine tfjent with us. It has broadened tbe rainda of our people and we feel, as do the other members of the Booster Club which brought the chantaoqua to Winslow, that the small expense each one has been called upon to meat^ has been money well spent. Zachariah Taylor Dearing of Marion township, died about midnight Tuesday night after being kicked in the head by a horse Saturday evening. Mr. Dearing had gone horseback from his home to George Jones’ store for a sack of flour. On arriving home he got off the horse at the horse lot gate and put the sack of flour down and turned the horse into the lot.
