Dan Bennett had a little acci dent while moving last Saturday. He had the cook stove and a tub full of dishes in the wa:on, when the horses got frightened at something and started to run. Carl ran and got hold of one horse's bridle, but not before the wagon was upset. However, the dishes were not broken and not a great deal of damage done to the stove, although it was broken in two or three places. Friday evening A. R. McCand less brought a stalk of corn with two large well developed cars of corn on it. While lie will rot guarantee that every stalk has two ears on, he says lots of them have. This was from the farm at McCandless Siding, and was raised by Arch Handley. Mr. McCandless has over 250 acres in corn this year, and it is all good. If nothing happens he will sure have some corn this year. Cable Ferry Demolished. Last Friday the government snag boat J. B. McPherson went down the river. When they got to the former village of Hillsdale, instead f going down the main channel of the river, they went down the "chute" between the island and the main land on the west, and ran into John H. Moorchead's cable ferry that runs to the island, demolishing the boat and tearing the cable down. The boat was at the west bank and a wagon loaded with corn had just driven off it. The steamboat apparently made no offort to avoid the ferry. This will be a serious inconvenience, as a corn sheller was on the island shelling corn, which was b Mng hauled over on the cable ferry and then to market. Ap parently the pilot of the steam boat believes cable ferries have no rights that a steamboat is bound to respect.
