In the interests of harmony and right living, all owners of chickens should ar range to keep them penned, as the gar den season is growing near and any trespass is liable to bring about dire re sults. After a man has worked bard spading up the ground and his wife has carefully planted the radishes and lettuce and a few other early vegetables, it is a trifle aggravating to have all the work come to naught by a few minutes effective scratching on the part of an old hen. For some lime Miss Maud Pryor, eld est daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Pry or, of this city, has been in poor health and it has finally been discovered she was suffering from a tumor.

Miss Maud is one of the most popular young ladies in Leon and her many friends are hoping the operation will be successful. The beautiful scenic settings for the first part of the Richards and Pringle's big minstrel performance at the opera house, one night, Friday, April 20th. is an exact reproduction of a Japanese village, with its breezy luxuriant per spective and unique architectural con ceits.

Miller's dray team ran away from the Q. depot Monday afternoon and made a hot foot up the bill toward town.

P. Olsen went to Grand River last Friday to prosecute Abner Pence, who had been arrested for stealing a roll of wire fencing from James Edwards. The trial was set for Friday, before Squire Brammer, Marion Woodard appearing for the defendant. Upon investigating the case Mr. Olsen found there was no evidence on which Mr. Pence could be ponvicted and he very properly dismissed the case without further coBts." The only evidence against Mr. Pence was that the wire was found on hiq farm, but he emphatically denied having anything to do with putting it there. Deputy Sheriff H. L. Tullis arrested Arthur H. Launtz, at the home of bi3 father. G. H. Launtz in Burrell township Tuesday. Young Launtz was arrested some months ago for stealing a team from J. B.

This will leave only the frame buildings owned by J. F. Penniwell, all the other business houses on Main street for two blocks being brick-. Paving is properly popular in Albia, where the public square was paved last year. At a reeent meeting of the city council it was unanimously voted to pave tbe streets one block each way from the public square and also the street to the C. B. & Q. depot, a dis tance of five'blocks. Most of the prop erty ojvners along the, route favored paving as was shown by a petition pre sented: to the council. What Albia is doing is a worthy object lesson for Leon. The Baker City, Oregon, Democrat has the following very complimentary notice of a former Leon lady, Mrs. Will A. Weatlierby. It says: Perhaps the most memorable celebra tion of Easter ever held in Baker City was that Sunday morning at St. Stephens' Episcopal church. The edifice was decorated most tastefully with beautiful lilies and the altar appropri ately draped. The congregation was so large that some of the people had to stand during the service. The notable feature of the service was Thp rnfarooe u„ uumuie icuiure ui uitj service wa8 ,urt, consisting of J. D. Brown, Stephen fc choir. Twelve.lads and young boys, trained by Mrs. W. A. Weatherby, the first boy choir iri St. Stephens', added beauty and impressiveneBS to the service by their spotless robes, and their sweet voices in hymn and chant certainly left nothing larking in the worship and devotion of the assembled throng. Mrs. Weatherby sang the Easter solo in her usual clear and sweet soprano with rich effect. The Rey. John Warren preached a stirring and very appropriate sermon from the text St. John 14, 16. To his untiring efforts and the hard work of Mrs. Weatherbv and the'Ladies' Guild is due the success of the boy choir which will hereafter be a part of the regular service. Bowling Contests. The second bbwling contest between the Hurst and Sbhenck teams was bowl ed last Wednesday evening, resulting in a victory for Hurst's team.

Warner organized another team and play ed a team composed of the pick of the Hurst and Schenck teams, and gave them a handicap of 150 points. War ner's team was defeated by the narrow margin of 33 points. Warner's team was unfortunate in getting over the foul line more times than their adversaries and this cost them the game.

Slater who moved from this city to Columbus,Neb., a few months ago, and the entire family except Mrs. Slater have had the small pox. Columbus, Neb April 14, 1901. DEAR FRIEND:—I suppose you think it about time some of us were answering your letter received while 1 was suffering with small pox at the pest house. Well 1 will try and write you some of the ex periences we have had. I came down with the disease Feb. 6th was moved to the pest house house that morning by niv request and remained there for 14 days. On the 18th of the month Vesta came down with it in a very mild form. Then on the 19th Geo. came down and the following day Percy. Georgia had it very light but Percy was a sick boy and was covered troui head to fefat having 159 eruptions on his face and when they freed you could not put the end of a lead pencil clown without touching one. When they freed they were as large as a pea and how he suf fered for :s days and nights no one knows hut ine. Carrie escaped the only one of us that did. When 1 came home on'the 20lh I nursed the children in two rooms and kept Carrie in the kitchen cooking for us. She would get evertliing ready to eat and set it on the table then go out of doors and around the house, come in the front way and go up stairs to return, and she kept this up until the children were well. Then I had them all bathe and clean clothing put on and all underwear and outer apparel buried. Also the bedding and carpets from the two rooms. Then I began to disinfect and fumigate what we had left. It took us a week but we all came through the disease without any bad results, no one has a scar or pit on face or body for which I am thankful, but I tell you it was hard lines, being almost, a stranger to have to be shut up for weeks as we were, but I had got acquainted and we needed for nothing. We like it very well and I doing a good business and making and saving some money and am not sorry of my move, thought I miss old friends and familiar faces. We are nicely located, haye a nice cottage with 7 rooms, closets and city water piped into the yard and house, 3 blocks from Main street and one block from the high school building. Vesta and Percy like it here and like the scholars. They speak often of you and think it was kind of you to remember us during our affliction. This find us all well at pres ent. Give my regards to L. P., Grandma and R. A. and good share for yourself. Would be pleased to hear from you at any time. Yours resp., DR. W. H. SI.ATER. License to Wed.

It enhances the value of abutting prop erty, establishes permanent grades and makes possible improvements of perma nent character. In the residence por tions of the city where there has been paving done there are great changes for the better always noticed. Property owners are stimulated to improve their places. New tesidences spring up where worthless shells of houses stood before. Trees are planted and parks are made to the curb lines. Properties are improved and kept in repair until in some cases the entire appearance of the street is al tered. lake for example anv of the paved streets in our city. Contrast the condition of the property along these streets with the condition before the paving was put in. The change in al most every case has been little less than wonderful Paving not only improves the streets but it builds up the t-itv The street paving of the city is in alarie measure responsible for the great resi dence improvement made in the citv in the past several years. There should be no hesitancy on tne part of the prop erty owners in joining the ranks of the petitioners lor the improvement along their streel. The cost of the improve nient is uiauy timtss looked upon as a burden and a hardship but another view shows that ii brings advantages and (MHintrp.s of value to ihe property, not possible without it. There are peti tions in circii.auon lor the improvement a'°'1'5^^erai iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiii streets and it is possible that Oskalonsa will do some more of the work this year, lier paved streets iu residence and business portions form the best investment that O-kaloosa ever made.—-(.Hkaloosa Herald.
