If it is all the same to Mr. Mansill we
would like a little more favorable corn
weather this month. If he will give us
tbe corn weather in June that he prom
ised and predicted we should have in
May. we will call it square. .
It is amusing to hear some of those re
publicans who voted for a war tariff on
the 6th of November, last.now peppering
their language with very strong adjec
tives denouncing the binding twine im
position. An important Question to ask
is, how will these men vote in the future?
A friend of ours recently said, "nearly
thirty years ago three doctors met at my
residence in consultation and said my

doubt very scientific of the doctors and
very foolish of me. But if they are satis-

There was an invited surprise party at
the residence of Nathaniel Mnmma's on

which left tbe wagon box in the road,

Zuma church. Young Mr. Tomer offered
his services to escort Miss Beal home in
his cart and had gone but a short dis
tance before he ran into, or over, the
wagon box. Mr. Tomer and Miss Beal
were both thrown out of tbe cart and
that vehicle was considerably demoral
ized. But their many friends will be glad
to learn that there were not any limbs
dislocated and that there will not be any
sunrical operation required.
We have a few prominent republicans
in Zuma, whom, if you wish to see
frothy and wrathy, you have simply to
say sisal grass. The Mills bill asked
permission to put sisal grass upon the free
list and to reduce the protective duty
from 85 to 25 percent, which would have
given the farmers cheaper binding twine;
but on the 6th of November last, these
wiseacres said "No," and now they are
holding indignation meetings and kicking
against their own votes. Verily, there
is a fool born every minute and some of
them live. Mcltcm in Pabvo.

Jamea Camp came near having a seri

turning home from church. The neck
yoke ring broke causing the tongue to
run in the ground, and tipped the buggy
in such a manner as to to throw Mrs.
Hayes upon the ground. Tbe team was
soon stopped, however, and no farther
damage than a broken buggy was sus
tained. The Johnstown horror is the common
topic of conversation here at present, and
grave fears are entertained by two of our
leading merchants (Messrs. Fender and

flood carried everything before it. They
have not received any communication
that is reliable as to their doom or safety.

recalled: He was sitting on end of the

shied to one side and jumped, throwing
him out in such a manner that the left
foot was ran over by wheel, bruising it
very badly. The ground being very
loose and sandy only prevented his foot
being crushed, as there were about fifty
bushels of corn on the wagon. The
foot has not improved very much so
