Oklahoma was married on Aug.
6th to Miss Ethel May Harris of
Illinois. Miss Harris was teach

Last Thursday week the light
ning struck a large limb of a f lo
cust tree near the mouth of Paint
Lick, on the farm of Ashford J.
Wyley,'; There' is nothing pecul
iar about that, but on Friday morn
ing the neighbors were astonished
to find that the Jimb, instead ' of
wilting and dying as is the ' usual
effect of a stroke of lightning . on
growing timber, had given forth
a full and heavy locust blobm and
is still in bloom. This is vouched
for by T. M. Warren, of Edenton,
Ky., who rode to the place to see
it. This has attracted much at
tention in that locality, and many
hundreds of people 'have visited
the place. ; "
Mr. Warren also told lis a re
markable thing in reference to a
calf two months old. He says
that his uncle, Elisha Warren,
has a cow and calf which run to
gether in the field ' and although
this "calf is a vigorous, healthy
animal, it refuses to suck the cow
except when she is driven to , the
Lightning kill lei two Iarga hogs ; milk gap. The calf is not muz
for Mr. Dab Todd at Bybe this zled and no effort is made to keep
i it from sucking. Mr. Elisha War-
ren lives at n-aemon, ana Mr. 1.
M. Warren asks any one who
doubts the story to write to his
uncle Elisha for the facts.

Senator Camden, of Woodford
i County gave, a barbecue which
; perhaps was the largest one ever
; given, and unquestionably was
the largest one ever given in this
; State by. an individual. It was
; for the ostensible purpose of bring
: ing the farmers of the state to
gether to discuss better methods
of farming, but its real purpose
which we infer was to bring Sen-
! ator Camden forward in a politi
cal way. ! '
About three hundred good Mad
isonians availed themselves of
the ppportumty to attend, and
they are loud in their praises of
the delightful entertainment given
them by Senator Camden..- They
report that fully two .t thousand
automobiles were on hand and'
that people came from all over
the state by automobile and by
train. Over twenty thousand per
sons were in , attendance. , The
barbecue was line and- everybody
was in the best of humor and the
event will live long in the memory
of those so fortunate to attend.

aunt's attention was diverted,
the girl leaped to the ground. In
the jump she . kept her footing
