A prominent divine of this city
who lias travelled extensively, remarked
yesterday that the people
were letting the weeds get away
with the town and that now was a
good time for every one to join in a
crusade against the obnoxious intruders
If each one would keep his
own premises and the walk in front
cleared of weeds the looks of the city
as well as general health would be
better. Cleanliness is next to god-lines,
it is said.

one of the young ladies had no
trouble in inducing the young man

Thursday when it was made known
that W. W. Meadows had filed suit
against Rev. Frank Morton Hawley
for $100,000 for real and punitive

affection she answered them. These

and instruction intended to
assist Mrs. Meadows in her divorce

Card of Thanks.
There are no words for us to express
our feelings toward our dear
friends and physician, whoso tenderly
ministered to our little baby boy
during his last days.
Christ said: "suffer little children
to come unto me, for such is
the Kingdom of Heaven" Christ
loved the children while on
earth, and we kuow he has taken
Russel to himself, aud that he is
"sate in the anus of Jesus safe on
his gentle breast.'
But while he lingered here in pain
aud sickness so many so tenderly
ministered unto him, and us, and we
shall never tail to hold each and
every one in tender remembrance,
and our Savior will ever graciously
remember you. "Veryly I say unto
you, inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it unto me"
