A Pretty Romance of the North, Vhich Has
a Charming Chapter in Rich Hill,
Among Rich Hill People Story
of Bride and Groom.
"Miss Morris I'olly Do Henr
I I." Hut the spoaker tooc a
beider over bashfulnes.s only to
hear a sweet "Yes, Harry." "Oh
if I could onty hope to ci er."
Another failure in lanp;un,'e. It
was feemiocly a helpless case
and might, have been only tor a i which js thoroughly equipped
demure "Harry I have said yes I -ni, modern machinery and
twice and if you really mean it J which does a high grade of work
so do I and -and," and to thisat most nominal figures. I
day the young man will iu&ist. WOuld advise you to have them
that he popped the question.
It wasn't Jong till there was a
wedding, not much lonjrer till
a letter came from Tolly's Uncle
Josh in Rich Iliil Mo who wrote
effusively of her grit and propos
ed that if the young people would
locate in his town he would give
them a good start iu life as a
wedding present. "And Jet me
tfll you" continued Undo Josh
"Western Missouri is the com
ing section of the United States
for a young couple to locate in if
they want to succeed in life; it h
settling up fast, capitalists are
looking this way for investments
it offers more inducements than
any other part of the part of the
country and Rich Hill is right in
tne section where tho ft eifp-it.

and is going to make the b:st
city in the whole region." Of
course they accepted and were
soon bidding their friends adieu.
"Before taking you home after
your journey, I would suggest
that we partake of some refresh
ments," said Uncle Joshua to
the bridal party. "For I under
stand how fatigueine it is to
travel, so come with me and I
will take you to my friends, the
Richardson's Restaurant, and
short order house; its only a few
steps from the depot. While
their may be more lavishly fur
nished establishments in iarper
Cities, still, it is the best to be
found in Rich Hill, for no similar !
place in the land can obtain bet
ter service for the money. They
will serve you quick lunch or re
Cular meals, they serve
the best chili's at l: per., they
also have furnished rooms
Their bill of fare always includes
everything the local markets
afford, all of which is propeily
cooked and neatly served. It U
Iways their policy to ticat all
their customers alike; this to
get lie r with excellent M-rviee
they render, has made their
restaurant the most popular in
town. After partaking oru
net meal the party left express
inK themselves a well pleased
with the courtesirs extended.
"We are now ready for the
cage of your bird," remarked the
old gentleman to Hirry, "and the
first thingto do is to secure cm
intent lor.tractor. It will bu to

"Tho question of j our laundry
work is also one of moment'
says tho old gentleman to Polly.
"No? we have in our town a
first-class u p t ivd ate laundry
do your entire washing for it
will be labor saved. I refer to
the Rich Hill Steam Laundry ;
; owned and operatod by my friend
Westhoff. lie is an enterprising
eentleman and thoroughly con
versant witn every detail of his
business. I want you young
people t o show more public
spirit aud interest in a home in
dustry than to let an outside do
your laundry work.
"Now Harry'' said Uncle Joah
"I know that your and Polly'
clothes need pressing and clean
ing aftr your long journey on
the train so I want to take you
around and introduce you to see
my friends Oiipharit & Napke.
IThev are expert pressers and
'cleaners of Ladies and Gentle-
mecs clothing, they also do le
pair work. Now you know that
you can't effoi d to take a $10 or
5f(0suitto some one who does
not thoroughly understand their
business and take chances of
having it spoiled. These people
have all of the work of the best
drtssed people of the city and I
cau recommend this firm as tho
best in their line- Their estab
lishment is located over Iieasley 's
"Now Polly," said Uncle Josh,
"I am going to take too. around
and introduce you to Mrs. S. L.
Ames, she has the only exclusive
ladies store in the county, she
has all lady clerks, the only man

She also has the best assortment
of KajKer glov-g American
Heauty corsets, suits, cloaks and
Moyen one piece suits to be

Now I am net as well posted on
gocds of this class as I am on
somethings but my wife can't
be fooled along that line and Bhe
