Greene, ofFreemont, registered at tho Occidental on Sunday. Latest. Kaining again, with tho pros pect of its continuing all night. Corn leaves rolled a little as the warm breeze of Sunday breathed upon them. The fall emigrant now wendeth his way westward in his canopied prairie schooner. The many cool, bright moonlight even ings of the past week have been universal ly enjoyed. Buffalo Park w as represented in town on Monday by Eev. J. Q. A. Weller and James D. Sloey. Both the G. A. K. and W. B. C. societies held meetings Saturday afternoon which m ere well attended. Potato bugs have done a stripping business of late, and the vines in some places are much wilted. Merchants, hotel keepers and land agents aie hopefully looking forward to a large fall immigration. A brother-in-law of A. Brandenburg has just arrived with a carload of farming utensils and a few cattle. Mr. Halthusen purchased 13,000 pounds of wool in this vicinity, mostly from Messrs. Adams and Cope. A notice has been publicly posted that the Colher base ball club will give a dance the last of this month. At the Catholic services last Sunflay a large congregation was in attendance, considoiing the heat of the day and the distance which most of the worshipers came. O. W. Chapman and Charles Green wood, of Silver City, low? spent a day in town this week, when L F. Jones sold to tho latter a township o railroad land southwest of town. Mr. Chapman had previously become an invester to the extent of ten sections. Three settlers arrived on Tnesday night's train. They were John Gray, his brother and a friend, of Salina. The first-named gentleman- was here a short time ago, when he purchased Charles Thiel's , homestead and placed papers upon an adjoining pre-emption. Most of our carpenters put in bids for building the school yard fence. The contract was let to E. A. Hanchet, his bid being the lowest by about 50 per cent. It is tho opinion of some that the 500 feet of fencing cannot possibly be built at his terms without loss. Anyone wanting a job of black smithing done should call on Charles T. Milms, of Colher, who is pre pared to perform all branches of blacksmith work, including the lepairing of farm machinery. You will find Mr. Milms ready for business at T. K.

LeBron is having a well bored on his claim,, a half a mile south of town. On Saturday work came to a sudden stop by the auger striking solid rock at a depth of 50 feet. As the auger made no impression upon the rock, a specimen of it could not be obtained to ascertain its nature, but as soon as a suitable drill can be secured work will be resumed. While waiting, the borers tubed the well east of town, and, when completed, had procured four and a half feet of water, at a depth of 75 feet At a depth of 25 feet the auger entered magnesia lime stone, and that, interspersed with sand, com posed the earths through which it passed in the last fifty feet. Monday evening's setting sun found no way to shed its last rays upon the earth ere it said its goodnight by descend ing below the horizon, for there in the west rose a mass of black, heavy clouds, which fhe sun was obliged to sink behind, and thereby deprived the lovers of the beauti fnl of Nature's last work of art in her series of sunsets. The clouds gained the mastery, and onward they pressed, until. ; at midnight, their power was heralded by a northwest wind which made the hearts of the people as well as the houses tremble. The heavenly blue was invisible, and only black, angry clouds canopying the heavens could be seen by the rapid flashes of lightning. Soon the wind had delivered its errand, and the rain, which it had foretold, began to descend, accompanied by heavy rolling thunder. "With the morning's dawn also came the dawn of hope in the minds of many who had begun to fear the re appearance of the destructive hot winds, A large amount of rain had fallen, and the crops will continue to grow in pro portion. Absent niindedness was the cause of considerable trouble between two families of this neighborhood not long since. As the matter has been settled without the threatened law suit, the names of the parties will be withheld. The facts, as obtained, were: A lady called at the post office for her mail, and while there laid upon the delivery window shelf a gentleman's watch, where it was some time after found by the postmaster as he passed through the room attending to his other duties. From the post-office the lady went to one of the stores, where, while doing her shopping, she first missed her property, and immediately concluded it had been taken from -her by a little boy who had been in the store, but who was then on his way home with his father. The lady and her husband, tak ing with them a third party as witness, started in pursuit, overtook the boy, made a search of both the wagon and the boy, but failed to find the watch. When the postmaster learned the trouble, he soon produced the watch, which was immedi ately claimed by the lady. As said before, a lawsuit was seriously threatened by the boy's father, but now he has thought better of the matter, and will not prosecute. W.C. OGALLAH OOZINGS. Ogam&aii, July 22. Business good.
