It is stated upon good authority that
Coll er G.A.R. Post have failed a number
of times to hold their legular meetings,
while the W. R. Corps has met and had a
quorum at each monthly meeting. N. B.,
To-morrow (Thursday) jill occur the
annual school meeting, at which, no
doubt, the directors hope ihere will be a
full attendance, as there are many im
portant questions to be brought before
the people of the district.

Mrs. Elmoor Bright continues her visit

expect to return to their Saline home this
Considerable dissatisfaction is ex
pressed with the result of having new
postal clerks on tho route, as the mail
intended for this town arrives with any
thing but promptness. Yery often the
eastern mail passes by and then returns
from the west One consolation: Other
towns probably suffer 'the same incon
venience. H. C. Williams, of Illinois, has been in
town for a week looking for a suitable
location for a large stock ranch. A town
ship of land was about secured in Sheri
dan county, but failed of completion
because of a change from the first offer. L.
F. Jones and H. C. Williams were looking
at land in Grainfield vicinity on Wednes
day. That was a pretty large snake story in j
tne last voiiio, out mis win compare
favorably with it: Mr. Larson, son-in-law
of our old settler, C. A. Sperry, recently
killed an old snake and her 29 snake eggs.
The eggs were of the size of pigeon eggs,
fttid each contained a small snake about
"two and a half inches long, the egg shells
oemg very sore xne snane belonged to
the adder variety.
There are a number of families in this
vicinity who will enjoy fruit ot their own
raising this year. Next week the "Caw
ihgs" will try to recount the number, and
l if anyone at a distance will send the
particulars of their successful attempts to
raise fruit to the Wobbd's correspondent
at Cbllyer, the first of the week, they will
be mentioned in the list.
Owing to the busy season and conse
quent detainment at home, man7 persons
did not hear of the memorial services last
Saturday until they arrived in town. The
members of the G. A. R. Post, therefore,
had no time for preparation, and, were
obliged to shorten the program incon
sequence. Before the exercises began
tho school house was well filled and moid
seats were introduced. On the side walls
of the room were hung heavy festoons of
black and white, each being caught with
a knot of black. Across the front were
similar festoons, encircling the picture of
(jeneral Grant and his little daughter,
set in a hand-carved wooden frame, the
work of a soldier during the war. Below
the picture hung a cross of white roses
and green leaves. On each side of the
room, below the draping, were the char
ters of the G. A. R. Post and the W. R.
Corps, draped with crape. The alter
also bore the emblems of mourning, the
bouquet of white petunias showing
prominently above tho black. Another
bouquet of green and white adorned one
of the windows. The exercises began
with Commander Hastings and Chaplain
Fonts on the platform. The opening
piece was Beethoen's Funeral March,
sympathetically executed upon the organ
by Mrs. Gunderson. Then followed the
reading of the G. A. R. Department order
to call such a meeting, a short sketch of
Gen. Grant's life, and a portion of the
G. A. R. burial service. Mr. Hanchet
then gave as a o o, "Ode to the Brave,"
with good effect, after which Commander
Hastings, who served under General
Grant during his western campaign, de
livered the following address with much
feeling: To be concluded next iveei
