rotracted meeting ill our school-house
Tuesday evening.
Mr. Garvey met with the serious loss
of one of his horses. The team ran
away, and run foul of a set of drags in
the field. One of them broke a hind
leg in several places, which occasioned
the necessity of killing the animal.
Mr. Kimball who has charge of Mr.
Ferguson's horses, while the latter is
in Minneapolis met with a like acci
dent. One of the horses got his leg
Into the stanchions in such a manner
as to break it before it could be re
leased. It also had to be killed to re
iove its suffering.
Married, at the residence of J. Fan

After congratulations by the com*

their residences near Elmira. A party
of young folks who spent the day at
0. Aldrich's being moved by the
spirit to call on them accordingly did
80 at about 7:30 p. m. They were
heartily welcomed and spent the even

principle part of the entertainment.
The performers were as follows: A.
M. Webster, violin W. D. Aldrich,
violin and harmonica Miss Delia

At an early hour the company dis
persed, the home going being enliv

in the harness of one of Dick Earl's
horses. No one was hurt, however,
although there was a sudden exodus
of young ladies from the sleigh and a
remarkable scramble in the snow as
they struck terra firma.

Said a prim teacher to a class in com
position: "Make a rhyming couplet
'including the word nose, toes, corn,
kettle, ear, two and boil." There
was a silence for a little while and
then a boy held up his hand in token
of success. "Read the couplet," said
the teacher, and the boy read: "A
boil on the kettle is worth two oil
your nose, and a corn in the ear is
worth two on the toes.
