Sunday, Feb. 20th, 1887, at the residence of tfie bride's parents, west of Colby, Mr. Wm. Ham- Moyer and Miss Lena Shafer, Rev. J. V. Van Eman of ficiating. Mr. Moyer is one of our popu lar boot and shoe dealers, and is doing a fine business. Miss Shafer has a large circle of friends here. 1 hey will live in Colbv. The Cat wishes them f elicit- lifelong. S. W. McElrov returned from Norton Monday. He reports that the Rock Isl and, known west of the Missouri river as the Chicazo. Kansas & .Nebraska railroad has bought a large quantity of real estate in and about Norton. At Smith Centre the same road has recently invested over $30,000 in real estate, and at millipsDurg over $40,000. Their survejors arc now working in Norton county, and before we publish again they will prob ibly be in this county. Oberlin Herald. The Chicago Comedy Company was in town, and plaved to good houses three nights thi-5 week. The venerable Robert Ruck is with the Kcmptons this season. Jt is unnecessary- for us to attempt a por traval of his acting. He is up to nature in all her perfections. As "Joshua "Whit-i-omb" he is simpry par excellence, and if Jlie steer could have been introduced to the audience. Josh and everybody else J would nave ucen earned away, jiumui the parts were well sustained, and Wal lace people vote the Chicago a decided success. Wallace Register. On the day of the great blizard.Thuis lay, Feb. 17, twentv-live teams started from Wallace, Kanv, for Eustis. When out a short distance the blizaid struck them, and all went back to Wallace ex cept a party of four. Of this party the bov who was with them froze his feet, .anil all, in order to keep warm and alive tramped around all day Thursday and Thursday night, and upon teaching Eus tis were well nigh exhausted. One pair of their horses iroe to death. We did not learn the panics names. A little gill of Mr. C. H. Havice, whose postollice address is Violenta, Sheridan county, Ivns., met with almost a fatal accident Jan. 27th, 1S87. Mr. Havice has a well 00 feet deep. His little daughter, onlv live ve.irs of age, while playing near b-, fell into it. The descent was onh broken by her dress catching on the curbing, "dow n about 18 feet. When found on the bottom of the well, she was lying on her left side, with her left arm broken in two places, and one leg broken just above the ankle, and two ribs frac tured, and cranium slightly fractured al to. Dr. Ii. Banes, of Gem P. O., was promptly called. The arm and leg were set; and the little giil carefully cared for by the I)i. She is now lecovering rapid ly, and will be eie long entirely well again. Dr. L. Ratios is a physician and nccouchcr, and we are told is meeting with success. The Dr. says the above is suilicient testimony as to his skill. Colby is becoming more and more wide ly known. No one who has ever visited her asks the reason why. The county seatof Thomas county; "the terminus o'f one railroad, and soon to be the junction of several, are fair reasons. In the midst of the best fanning land of the best state in the Union; in the heart of a denselv populated count', who fails to see its sd vantages. No one ever invested in Colby or Thomas county and lost a dollar. No one ever saw either and went away with out a word of praise in their behalf. Now is the time to invest. Hundreds arc now coming to Thomas county and let them come. It oilers the best and most profit able inducements. Come now. Lai Week We omitted the second line in Pi of. I. II. Ruller's stanza, and also said it was sung to the tune of "John liiown'.s Body." which so spoiled the .ser.se of the veise that we feel under ob ligations to conect the same. The stan za should have been as follows: Kansas is a wondrous state. She is mighty, stiong and great, She's the desert now no longer, but a park: Heie the war was first begun, Here the soldiers fought and run: Jmv she simis. and sails, and soars up like a lark." The stanza was suggested by and writ ten during the speech of Elder Hickey, and was sung by the composer for the 3rd verse: when" the enthusiastic audience responded "with a rousing chorus of "Tiamp, Tramp. Tramp, the bos are Maiching, &c." Musical Entertainment. March 2d, 1887, at Bean's Kail. VKOOHAMME. Piano solo, Amy R. DuBois. Quintette, Ann" DuBois, Mrs. Walker, Mr. Bodcn. Mr.'F. H. Smith, Mr. E.

Land of sunshine and alluvial soil! (with plenty of building stone and natural lime close by.) Land of variegated climate, and most agreea ble surprises! Land of schemes and syndicates !

What a fascination is thine, and what a mystery it is that everybody don't leave where they are and rush to thee, Kansas, and buy a farm, or a corner lot, or open a bank, or a loan agency, in any one of our several hundred railroad centers, and mount with us, on the wings of our boom, to the stars, which glim mer just beyond our last "addition" to the town sito?
