All correspondence must reach the Union office not later than Tuesday evenings of each week, with the excep tion only of correspondence from the lake country and northern parts of the county which will be received not later than Wednesday forenoon on the southbound mail train.Editor. MILO. Mr. and Mrs. B. A. Bradley were made very happy on Nov. 9 by the ar rival of a boy in the family. The mother and oung gentleman are do ing well. Mr. Low ater, Mrs. Bradlej 's father, has just returned from Stevens county where he has spent the summer. He was accompanied by his daughter, Mrs. Cousins. A very large party of oung people gathered at the home of Miss Lelia Kennedy on Hallowe'en and all seemed to enjoy themselves and we think this is much more profitable way to observe the evening than the young people have been accustomed to ob ser\e it. John VanKleek, son-in-law of S. B. Smith, leased Erick Erickson's farm foi a term of two years and will soon take possession. Mr. VanKleek was a former resident of Milo. but lor the past two years has lived in Stevens county but now is anxious to get away from the bleak winds of the prairie. There is a very bad place in the road near B. A. Bradley's and a team taking a load of young people home from a party got into this hole but the passengers managed to get out before the team and wagon disap peared and after much trouble and vexation of spirit the driver succeeded in rescuing the team. On November 3d there was a very pleasant gathering at the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Smith, it being the seventy-fifth anniversary of Mrs. Smith's birthday. The weather was delightful. All that was lacking to make it perfect was a good moon, yet notwithstanding the lack of this heav enly body the evening was very enjoy able to all participants. 'I was troubled with constipation and stomach troubles, lost flesh, my complexion was ruined Hollister's Rocky Mountain Tea brought back my health and complexion."Mary Allen, St. Louis. 35 cents. C. A.Jack. SPENCER BROOK. Jack Furney will probably have his house plastered this week. Ernest Patten has rented the George Smith house and has moved into it.

Miss Ella Watson of Champlin was a caller among the Brook people the past week taking orders for silver ware and extracts, etc. A number of our farmers are killing and selling beef to the neighbors as they can get more out of it that way than selling to the butchers and cattle buyers. The old mill is running full time and is mostly occupied in grinding buckwheat flour, one man bringing in 200 bushels last week. The miller is also prepared to grind rye flour as he has put in a smut machine and new bolter. This week the Brook has been blessed by the addition of two new married couples. Ernest Patten was married to Olivia Hemison, and John Beck to Lilla Erickson. May all happiness attend them in their new estate. Work on the new parsonage goes on apace and this week if weather per mits will see it about ready for the plasterers. The Rev.
