Tho May Queen probably
figured in tho old Roman festival,
though it is doubtful.
During tho Puritan period May
Day festivities in England received
a blow, but after tho restoration
they wcro revived.
QMio first of May is still loosely
observed in parts of England, Germany,
Franco and our own Amori-ca.
The May Day celobration given
at Layton was, in every way, a
success, and a credit to thoso who

Tho crowning of tho May
Queen, Miss Birdie Olson, was a
pretty feature of tho program.
The Queen and Maids, tastefully
draped with garlands of roses,

dark festoons of the wall.
The afternoon was devoted to
out-door oxcrciscs, and a dancing

May Day was colooratcd in

Tho crown could not have fallen

We see no reason nor can find
any pretext for refusing allegiance

and tho consequence was that
Mr. Fife lost a great' many head of

Fife is in receipt of a letter from
his Washington attorney in which
he states that there is no doubt
about his claims being allowed
at an early date, which is mainly

Mr. Fife's daughter, the only eye

A Sad Accident.
Last Wednesday, Willie, tho 15
year old son of Mr. and Mrs. John
Daloy, of Thatcner, went to Central
to see tho gamo of ball played between
the Thatcher and Central
teams. On his return in boyish
sport, he road alongsido a buggy
occupied by Georgo Hoops, and
Thomas Moody, and carelessly allowed
his horse to step through
ono of tho wheels of tho vehicle
This caused tho animal to fall
heavily to tho ground with the
boy underneath. Thoy fell in such
a position that tho horso was unable
to rise until tho occupants of the
buggy could stop their team and
rash to tho boS assistence, and in
raising tho animal planted two of
its feet squaroly on his stomach.
Tho boy was picked up unconscious
and tenderly carried to tho
buggy and convoyed homo. No
ono thought ho was seriously in
jured. But at the end of about
two hours- as he showed no signs
of consciousness Dr. Porter was
summoned, and after a very careful
examination pronounced that
ho was suffering from concussion
of tho spine, and also expressed
very grave doubts as to his recov
ery. However, the doctor is in
constant attendenco and is using
every posible means to relieve his
suffering and to save his life Tho
neighbors and friends of the family
aro also lending every assistance
in their power. At the timo of
our going to press ho had not revived.
