Western Trego has had its usual quota
of rains and fogs the past week. Thurs
day's was an afternoon shower followed
by a mist lasting until morning; Friday it
showered east of town and even sprinkled
in town, but those on the base ball
grounds knew not that it had rained
until told them afterwards; Tuesday
night a heavy rain fell and the lightning
was unusually vivid, and now, as these
lines are penned, distant thunder can be
heard, promising a similar night's en
tertainment. The dance at the school house on Fri
day night was both a social and financial
success. A number of strangers from
Wa-Keeney, and Buffalo Park were
present, and a pleasant time was had.
The net proceeds were $22. Besides this
amount, some $12.50 was made by the
second nine selling ice cream and lemon
ade. Many compliments were bestowed
upon the beautiful appearance of the
supper tables at the Occidental Hotel, the
ladies having bountifully supplied them
with bouquets, as well as choice edibles.
Mr. Morris has been unexpectedly
called home because of a contest entered
upon his claim. For some time Mr.
Morris has been doing business in Holton,
Kansas, having failed, like many another,
to make a living here during those years
of drouth. He lias, however, been on his
claim as often as the law requires, and
will make every effort to retain it A
timber claim a few miles from town had
been bargained off by a local land agent,
but the owner timely fulfilled the law
upon the same, and the $200 was not
made as expected.
A committee was appointed last Sat
urday to arrange for memorial services
on the day of thft funeral of our lamented
hero, Gen. Grant. The services will be
under the auspices of the G. A. It and
W. K. C. societies, and will be held at the
school house on Saturday afternoon, Aug.
8, at 2 p. it, standard time. The public
are cordially invited to join in praising
him whom a "nation delighted to honor."
The ladies have draped the building for
the occasion, and one has been chosen to
address the meeting, who was in Gen.
Grant's command during the war, and
therefore he can give personal reminis
cences. The Wa-Keeney base ball club, while
they gained the game last Friday, did not
carry home as great honors as they had
anticipated, they having expected a result
similar to the score of the game at Wa
Keeney. In some respects they lost
much, as the ladies present had expected
from representatives of our county seat
language of a more refined nature than
some tney were obliged to hear. It
would be a good idea for a few members
of that club to learn some adjectives
which would express their excited feelings
on such occasions, or else give notice that
their games are best seen through a tele
scope. The score of the game we give
below, for which F. B. Strong, of Buffalo
Park, acted as umpire:

was admired greatly by many auditors.
He gave General Qrant credit enough to
