Mrs. Eufus Kessler was taken suddenly
ill at the school house on Saturday, and
was removed to the home of J. W. Kyle,
where her husband and friends watched
over her with great anxiety during the
night. Monday morning she was able to
be moved home.
During the rainy weather of last week
many families suffered great inconveni
ence for want of coal for fuel. Mr.
Fisher has decided it will not pay to keep
coal on hand during the summer, so
there was none to be purchased, and the
"prairie fuel" was too wet for use, even
when it could be gathered. Some per
sons made one meal answer for two, for
lack of fire to cook both, and washing,
ironing, etc., had to wait for the sunshine.
On Thursday evening, June 25, the
ladies of the Woman's Relief Corps will
give a literary and musical entertainment
at the Collyer school house. Program
and full details given next week. All the
parties and entertainments given by this
society are to raise funds to build a G. A.
R hall. The ladies have a little " lump "
on hand, and hope the people will largely
patronize their efforts on June 25, that
Collyer may be supplied with a much
needed public hall.
The sultry weather since Saturday,
closed Tuesday afternoon, at 4 o'clock,
with a hail storm from the southeast. At
Collyer, two stones measured were
two and a half inches each in circumfer
ence, while in the Colby district they
were a littie larger and thicker than a
silver dollar, and broke all the window
glass they came in contact with. Mr.
Richards reported five panes of glass
broken at the hotel. Such was the force
with which the hail was driven that it
bounded over the prairie like a rubber
t The services last Sunday morning were
made more interesting by the addition of
organ music. While the congregation
was gathering, E. A. Hanchet presided at
the organ, and led the audience in a num
ber of hymns. Eev. Weller took for his
text: Joshua 24:15, "But as for me and
my house, we will serve the Lord." At
the close of the meeting it was announced
that the organ had been brought to
Collyer for the benefit of the people; that
it could be used in all entertainments
given by the church, Sunday school or
G. A. R, except dances, and for those it
could not and must not be used. The
instrument is a $125 one, of Smith's
make, of Boston, and has been secured
for $70, on $10 monthly payments.
Messrs. Geo- W. Kessler and E. A.
Hanchet were appointed a committee to
solicit subscriptions for the organ, and to
them can be paid any subscriptions here
tofore made for the purpose.
Owing to the rainy weather of last
week the work of the committee was
greatly retarded, but ere the audience
arrived on Saturday, the labor of decor
ating the school house was completed to
the satisfaction of alL In place of the
teacher's desk was the G. A. R altar,
covered with a beautiful flag upon which
were two swords crossed, and above them
the Bible, whose words of "good trill to
men" are gradually. mnlriTig unnecessary
the use of swords and guns. Between
the points of the swords was placed a
basket of white flowers. A little in front '
and each side of the altar stood two ped
estals heavily ladenwith house plants and
flowers. Upon the front of one of the
pedestals hung a wreath, and on the
other a cartridge box which had seen
service on the Potomac Back of the
alter was draped a beautiful specimen of
the national colors, in the center of which
Bung a cross of white roses and green
leaves, and above both, trembling in the
breeze, were three small flags, and large
pictures of George Washington and Abra
ham Lincoln, which hung on apposite
sides of the room, were festooned with
like colors. On the western wall was
placed a picture of Martha Washington,
festooned with leaves and flowers, and
above it more flags, one of which bore a
likeness of "Old Abe," with the inscrip
tion,x"The preserver of his country,"
Vases of flowers were on the organ, wild
flowers in the southern windows, running
vines fell gracefully from the top of the
stove, and living plants in the northern
windows. One of the latter needs nloie
than a passing notice, as it is indeed a
memorial orange tree, the seed of which
was taken from an orange given a little
friend by our lamented citizen, Mr. Hugh
It soon became evident that a larger
seating capacity would be needed, so
benches were brought from the Post
building, and, when the services began,
standing room was all that could be had.
The order to form into line was given
by Past Commander Robb, and an invi
tation to all old soldiers to join the G. A.
R ranks, and soldiers' wives those of the
W. R C, was extended. Headed by the
Buffalo Park martial band, the two socie
eties marched to the school house, the
Grand Army boys being known by their
badges and th6 Corps ladies by a bow of
the national colors.
"Jefferson and Libert'," by the Buffalo
Park band, opened the exercises, and was
followed by "Wrap the Flag Around Me,
Boys," sung by a few of the school
children. They were slightly embarrassed,
and failed to do themselves justice, yet
received some high compliments. Next
came the public memorial services by the
Post, which were very entertaining; the
choir rondering "Tenting to-night" and
"Vacant Chair." Mrs. L. A. Fisher gave
the solo of the first with much expression,
and Miss Kittie Martin sung the "Vacant
Chair" as only a veteran's daughter
could sing such words from the heart.
Past Com. Bobb then introduced as the
speaker of the day, Comrade J. Q. A.
. To be concluded next week.

Banner, June 1.
The last week of May was a week of
genial showers what the farmers call
good growing weather.
The, Sabbath school at Banner school
house is gettingalong splendidly, with
good attendance and good interest.
Planting and seeding are about done,
and farmers are very busy cultivating
corn and killing weeds or sv:ch of "them
as I call farmers. Some do not think it
doe3 any good to cultivate crops in
this country that we will not raise any
thing in this country, anyway. Them I
do not. call farmers. Some try to dis
courage new settlers by telling them that
thereuis no use tryiDg to farm in this
country they cannot raise anything,
while they themselves are trying to get
every foot of land they can. The cattle
men would be glad if it was as they say
that we could not raise anything; but I
would say to men who are making their
calculations to ran a herd of range cattle,
that their business is about played out in
this country; that in a very few years
there will be a home on nearly every
quarter section, and the people will make
comfortably good livings, and some will
get rich, the croakers to the contrary, not
withstanding. J. Cantreii B.
Every family should have a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy for use during the summer.
Its prompt use has saved untold suffer
ing, many lives and many doctor bills. It
is the acknowledged standard, and can
be depended upon, besides it is pleasant
to take. It is put up in 25 cent, 50 cent
and one dollar bottles.
In writing of that country," Mr. O. S.
McClain, a prominent real estate dealer,
301 Fifteenth street, Denver, Colorado,
says: "I removed herefrom Iowa in 1874.
As a healthy country, Colorado has proved
to be equal to my most sanguine expec
tations. The air is clear, pure and light.
The water here in Denver is obtained
from artesian wells, 600 feet deep, which
are numerous in the city, and free from
alkali, mineral taint and vegetable matter;
but in many places the water is impreg
nated with alkali, and persons not ac
customed to it are almost certain to be
taken with cramping pains in the stomach,
diarrcea or bowel complaint of some form;
and right here I wish to give my friends
and the public a bit of advice, which is
based on eleven years' experience. Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera, and DiarcB3
Remedv is a certain cure for alkali
poisoning, cramping pains and diarhoea.
It's a remedy I would not do without for
any consideration, and I nave neard
