One of the society events of the
season was the wedding last Saturday
at ten o'clock of Miss Beulah Hubbard,
daughter of Ex-Congressman 1) Hub
bard, to Dr. Charles D Osborne, son
of Mrs. P.G. Woods. Miss Beulah has
lived iu this city nearly all her life
and stands in the front row among
our best and prettiest girls. She pos
sesses the charming combenation of
being both a society and "home" girl.
Her mother died many years ago, and
she has had charge of her father's
household since then. She is well
educated, able to take her place in
social functions with the best, and at
the same time is fully capable and
equipped to take charge of a home
and the doctor would have had to
look a long time to find a better wife.
Doctor Osborne is well known in. this
city, having lived here a part of his
life. He 'is one of the young and
rising physicians of the country and
is at present located at the little city
oi Flarence, where he has a large and
lucrative practice. With his abil ity
and inclination to medicine, he has a
most brilliant future and this young
couple have nothing but the best to
hope for and look forward to.

Any one who looks over the or
chards in Morgan county must be
surprise I to see how little care these
orchards are receiving. There are
thousands of trees in Morgan county
that might to be'bearing from six to
twelve bushels of the finest quality of
apples, that have not a peck of m ir-
kctable apples on them. I he apples
are of splendid varieties, anil there is
nothing wrong, except that the trees
receive no care. The trees have
neither been trimmed nor sprayed
and for this reason the apples are in
ferior and rotting on the ground.

took care of in good shape, and we
hope the little Rock Island city will
keep their fair going each year.
