that corn is doing nicely, regardless
of the drouth. The rain of last
Thursday was very beneficial.
The new proprietors of the cream
ery, Messrs. Goldworthy and Odell,
have received their corn grinder and
are making several improvements
which will be advantageous to pa
trons. The foundation is being laid for the
new M. K. church in the John Butzer
addition. This, with the new resi
dences going up, and an elevator,
which will be built soon, will make
quite an improvement to the town.

J. M. Martin, the new postmaster,
is preparing to move the postoflice
into the grain and lumber oflice,
owing to the edict issued by the
owner of the building now occupied
by him, that an additional rent will
be necessary if moved in the store.
This seems a new departure in parti
sanship, as the oflice has been in the
same building several years pre
viously with no perceptible damage
to the building, which the owner
now claims is the reason for the de
sired additional rent. The move will
be temporary, however.
Rev. L. II. CofTman, pastor of the
Bethel Baptist church, being away
on a vacation, the B. Y. V. U. of that
church, are conducting the cvninr
services. Last Sunday evening the
usual large congregation was pres
ent, and an exceptionally interesting
and instructive program was carried
out. which consisted of essavs. read
ings, declamations and addresses.
One Sunday evening in each month
is devoted to services of th;s kind,
and the result of last Sunday even
ing's meeting demonstrates the ad
vantage of tin- poiicy. Now. when
the pastor is absent, "this union takes
up t lie work, and the community is
seeing the good of the movement by
these illustrations of ability to inter
est and instruct in the absence of
the pastor. One noticeable feature
last Sunday evening was the km-e
number of young people in the con
gregation. Indeed, it was composed
of these, with the exception of half a
dozen, and the deportment was tin
pride of the union.

A London Idea.
In certain London restaurants each
customer is allowed to make his or her
tea. The waitress lights the gas burner,
which is affixed to each table, and seta
thereon a 6ilver kettle. Then she pre
sents to the teamaker a silver caddy
divided into compartments and offering
a choice of Souchong, Ceylon or greeu
tea. Any one who is compelled to drink
the lukewarm stuff called tea at res
taurants will appreciate the new idea.
