Hull, of Eock Island, HI., was in town on Wednesday. East-bound accommodation train has been late many times this week. Alex. Todd, of Blandingsville, HL, stopped at the hotel on Tuesday. "Walter Brown, of Xansas City, regis tered at the Occidental on the 22d. Closing exercises of school were verv interesting, but not as well attended as they deserved." , James- Burns, of Wallace, formerly a resident of this place, was here on busi ness last week. Zavodsky & Zeman have hung out their land office sign, but it is too small to be easily read. Charles Adams and Mr. Cope have brought to town a large quantity of wool, but not quite all they have ready for market. G. H. Brewster, of Bushnell, HI , made a short stay here this week. The people of his city are becoming quite interested in western Trego. Wheeler Bros, have the north side of their store adorned with a three-line sign. James Siobert did the painting, and he knows how to wield the biush. One who knows reports that a species of hawk which is seen along Big creek calls its prey by clucldng for the little chickens like a hen. This it does while on the Vying. Victor Zavodsky recently received a letter stating that 130 families from Chi cago, HI., would soon be here. He ex pects to locate them as a colony, some miles from town. L. A. Fisher will spend a few days this week at Cleveland, where he will take charge of his branch store during the absence of Lorin Hanchet, who is obliged to appear beforo the U. S. land office, on his contest case. E. E. Lichty, who has been visiting the family of B. G. Kessler for a few weeks, returned to his home in Iowa on Wednes day. He intends to pni chase cattle in Iowa, which ho will bring with him, when he and his brother locate herenext spring. On Monday and Tuesday this locality had the benefit of some distant storm, as the weather turned very cool and the clouds hung thick and threatening all day Tuesday, yet, with the exception of a little mist, no rain fell until early the next morning. The artist of the Buffalo Park Blues adorned a page of the Occidental register with an interesting specimen of his work. It showed considerable taste of. its kind but" not very complimentary to his friends. But take courage, your artistic bump will enlarge by constant use of that organ. Johnson Ogram was in town on Wednesday. He expects to leave for his new home in Santa Barbara, Cal., next week. The people of this vicinity found Mr. Ogiam a good citizen and neighbor, and wish himself and family much pros perity in their adopted lesidenco on the Pacific slope. Circumstances combined to pievent the ladies from preparing a program of the W- B. C entertainment to bo given to morrow evening ( 25th inst.) at the school house, in time for last week's letter. A fine literary entertainment has been de cided upon for the occasion, at the close of which ice cream, etc., will bo for sale. Beforo ten o'clock Sunday morning the worshipeis at the Catholic church began to ascend the hill toward the church, and by the time service opened the building was surrounded by teams. Inside im provements will continue to be made at the church, though it is not expected that the larger ones will be completed before faH. The heat of Thursday was lessened by a heavy rain that night. So incessant wore the flashes of lightning that they could hardly be watched without dizzi ness. The heavy intermissivo rain came sometimes from the south, then, a few minutes later, from the north, and fre quentlv accompanied bv small hail. These show ers continued all through the night, and by morning the earth was re freshed, crops assured, and farmers happy. School children are enjoying their first week of vacation, and jet many of them would willingly have continued their school duties much longer, so attached had they become to their teacher and eaclj other. Besides whisper it softly it is easier sitting at the desk, knowing you will soon have a good play with mates, than to be ready to run on the numerous errands which parents usually find for little folks to do, especially when there is no playmate to aid you. The numerous home duties at this season of the jear, and the heat of last Saturday failed to detain the members of the W. 1L C. at home. Last Saturday's meeting was held at the school house, as that building is a much cooler one th,an the G. A. B. rooms. The number of the corps is steadily increasing, two more ladies having been admitted to member ship at the last meeting. All Ioy al ladies are eligible to membership, and such will find the society's meetings a real pleasure, and thus be rewarded for helping sustain so good a cause. Saturday morning the school girls ap peared at the school house in light dresses and colored ribbons, the boys in their best suits, tfor in a short time" they were" to assist in the closing exercises of the school year. Owing, perhaps, to the time being appointed for the morning hours, but few parents attended, and il must have been quite a disappointment to many of tne scnolars, as it certainly was tne teacner, auot wnom had labored Becitation Sister and L Bessie Siebert.

Fisher presided at the organ and added much to the musical portion of the exercises. Where all did so well, it would be very hard to give distincive praise, but a few suggestions may aid the scholars in future efforts, and SO one criticism is marlp. TtnTnolv. that of reciting a little too fast and slight ly indistinct, making it hard for the audi ence to hear all the words. The selections 1 werewell chosen, and, as a whole, well rendere'd. Walter Siebert and Jesse Kessler seemed the least embarrassed, and therefore actedmore naturally whe i on the "platform; Bessie Siebert gave more gestures during her recitation than any other; Eddie Phillips entered heartily into the sentiments of his -piece, and gained the approval of the audience; Jessie Bartlett rested the audience with her slow and distinct deliverv; Frances Hays told the Agent's Story with much sympathy, while little Paulino illustrated a teacher's influence, as she sold her flowers with the courage gained by watch ing her instructress, much to the amuse ment of tho listeners. It was during the dialogue that the smiles broke forth into a hearty laugh, occasioned bv the uatent- right agent not being able to unlock the satchel in which was his model (potato digger. The teacher went to his assis tance, and the dialogue proceeded until he found himself again stopped by the same cause. Once more aid was given, and the piece closed amid hearty applause. Never mind, Joe, it proves, that you are not in habit of tampering with locks. Parting words weie then well spoken by Nettie Kessler in her Valedictory. W. C.

Frank Benson, of Lane county, is up, spending a few days with Ogallah friends. In number, we think Ogallah will be well repiesented at the coming normal institute. A letter from C. M. Bell, of Frazeys burg, Ohio, formerly of this county., states that wheat in that section will not bo one-fourth crop. Win. Stark, who has been at work near Minneapolis, Kansas, for some time, returnecr home baturday evening, and staited back again this (Wednesday) morning. We learn that he intends to move his family there in Aug. or Sept. Mort Birds, one of .three brothers, drove 183 head of yearling heifers through here last evening. They were'purchased in northern Iowa, shipped to Hays, and were being driven to Gove county," where one of the brothers had gone to look up a location. Mr. Bird said he would bring nearly 200 more in a short time, and that they would average him in Gove county a little less -than 017 per head. Miss Belle "Bidgway closed her school in district No. 4 last Friday, June 19. She taught a term of nine months. Aver age attendance for tho last three months, 11. Tho exercises of the last day were followed by an exhibition at night, con sisting of recitations, songs, dialogues, tableaux, etc., all of which were well ren dered. We have not time and space to speak of the exercises in detail, but will say they were good and greatly enjoyed by a crowrded house. They showed taste, talent, skill, and a cheerful willingness to work and a determination to succeed. All in the district unite in saying that the past school year has been a pleasant, profitable and long-to-be-remembered one. C. TJ. Lateb.

Farmers within IG miles are engaging jMr..Bartletfs unrivaled reaper and binder to harvest their grain, so this part of glorions Kansas is to have the click of the reaper and thresher. The river since Sunday noon has fallen so teams can cros3 the ford without swimming. The trepidation manifested by some travelers in crossing on Saturday and Sunday1 was quite exciting; especially so to two ladies in a high box wagon, who, with a gentleman driver, tried to cross with two small ponies attached, one of which would stand still in the middle of the raging stream, the other wanting to lie down. Whipping kept it on its feet until a team of stout horses came to the rescue. Crossing an impromptu bridge, placed from one wagon to another, they were safely landed on the other side. Horsrn,.
