The war on Boggy last week was not so bad as represented. No one was choked black, but a certain young man's coat tail fanned the breeze behind him, while he made tracks for the valley and left his poay, tied to a tree, which was liberated some hours afterwards by some of the mill bands. All is agreeable at present. 1 Stone Wall Jack. r MONEY s what we all want, But is hard to get Unless you go to JONES & VERITY, At Harrison. They make ' THE "BIGGEST AND BEST" FARM LOANS. And on . BETTER TERMS Than any competitors. MONEY ALWAYS ON HAND. Come to "Headquarters." Jt is reported upon good authority that two men were killed at Collins, the new town on the B & M. at the Chey enne crossing, on last Sunday. The par ticulars have not been learned but our informant ttates tliat two "toughs" filled themselves with "booze" and then took to shooting, using each other for targets. This becoming more monoto nous than effectual they commenced firing into the crowd of bystanders that Imd by this time gathered, whereupon one of the aforesaid spectators shot both of them and death was the final result. The men had wounded each other sever al times during the shooting just pri or to their death. 1 Boggy Items. Death has again visited this part of th) country and taken Georgie, a 11 e&r old son of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Bow ser; and a son of Mr. and Mrs P. K. Mur phy, aged seven years.

Come on there is room for more in SioUx County. Three more young ladies to grace the valley. There will be less bachelors if they play the right card.

She will stay at the Post this summer. Mr. Meinhart was just going to show the people how ,to break and he broke the beam out ofc' his plow. That's the way he breaks. Another man scared almost to death on the Boggy. When Mr. Greger is plowing with Han ley's mules he says he can cast quite a shadow. When fence law and herd law men come together, they make things hot. I noticed awhile ago that some one in speakmg of the Boggy school house said tliat there were neiuier Beats nor black boards in it. There is no use for them ; all the scholars want to know is, how the cows tot into the cabbage. Wm. Corcoran unyoked his cattle Monday night lor the Urst time since he got them. Blncome.

"Do you really believe that it is of any use whatever having children join your temperance society?" was asked some time ago. "Indeed, I do," replied a wor thy minister of the Gospel; "I liave had more parents reclaimed from intemper ance and added to my church through the zeal of these little ones than from any other agency." We liave known of parents becoming earnest devoted Chris tians, all through the efforts of their lit tle ones. Surely, "a little child shall lead them." Temperance Banner. FOR FLORRY'S SAKE. "Don't go out to-night, dear husband, please," beggod Mrs. Morely, as her hus band rose and opened the door. Mr. Morely had lately been introduced to some frienda;vlio, his wife felt sure, were doing h.l'no good. Evening after evening he siieiJt with them, and seemed to care 1 ess and less for the society of his wife and child. Mrs. Morely also feared he was getting to like the drink. Sometimes he came home excited and unlike himself, and she longed to save him before it was too late. Mr. Morely stood with his hand on the handle of the door, as he said half impa tiently, "Why should I not go? I can not stay in to-night." "Oh, but do," she urged laying her hand lightly on his shoulder; "do stay in to-night for Florry's sake." Florry was Mr. and Mrs. Morely's only child and her father was devotedly fond of her; so, after a moment's hesitation he turned round and sat down again. His wife's face brightened, and she poked up the fire to a blaze and chatted away cheerfully to him. Then he asked, "You said, 'for Florry's sake;' what did you mean?" "Have you forgotten that to-morrow is Florry's birthday? I am preparing an album for her, and I want you to help me finish it; she will value it much more if there is some of your work' in it. . Mr. Morely liad great taste, and the album rapidly improved under his hands. His wife continually talked of their child, and her devotion to her father, and of their own responsibility as parents, till new thoughts came into the father's heart "I will give Florry a treat to-morrow," he said at last, "I will come home early to tea, and spend the whole even ing with her." And so he did; and from that time he broke away from his evil acquaintances, and greatly through the influence of his wife and Florry, he became a Christian man, and lived a happy and useful life.
