lieve that the Oriental sisters will not

In nine month's President McKinley

The great and only '"Orientals" have

Some of the Indiana Kepublicau
newspapers are booming Perry Heath
for I'nited States Senator. On account

The Crawford county white-caps are
alleged to have threatened Willett and
Weathers, the "busted bankers" of

may be easily frightened. The best
people of Crawford county 6eem dis
posed to give the unfortunate ex-bankers
a chance.
A. P. Elliott of this city has rung the
bell in the Kpiscopal church for the past
32 years. Not one Sunday has he
missed during this long period. The
old church bell peals forth its inviting
chimes on time every Sunday morning
calling the faithful to worship and Mr.
Elliott is the man at the helm. We
doubt very much if there is another
sexton in Indiana that has a record
that equals that of A. P. Elliott.

F. M. Axe is closing out Ins store. He
will leave for the Klondike country

good location and his good will be
