Editor Monitor.—I am pleased that the Governor of our State has recommended an "Old Home Week to be observed in this State, and be lieve it will prove a great bond of union to all the natives of New Hampshire wherever they may be scattered throughout our land or in foreign lands. But I am in a dilem ma—for if I were to send but one half the stamps you credit to my order it would overflow any hall in Concord. I am deeply interested in Gover nor Rollin's suggestion that we have a large auditorium erected in this city to accommodate the thou sands who may flock here for the annual Old Home Week," and oth er special occasions. To assist in securing the success of this enter prise I hereby pledge to pay twelve hundred dollars toward the erec tion of the above named building. Cordially yours, MARY BAKER EDDY. OBITUARY. Again the death Angel has visit ed our midst and taken from among us one who, only a few weeks ago, gave promise of a long life. J. Walter Connrardj- was a young man who was born and had grown up in Audubon county, most of his life having been passed in Exira. Sometime in the latter part of April he started with his father and grand parents to make an extended trip through the west and look up a loca tion for future business. All seem ed well until sometime in June, and while in the mountains of Wyom ing he was taken with mountain fever and gradually grew worse till it seemed he must return home, which he did, arriving 111 Exira on June 2(5tli. From the time of his arrival it was evident that he was a very sick man, and only a very strong constitution could withstand the shock. He marte a brave tight for life, but the disease had taken such strong hold that in the early morn of July Fourth his spirit went out to that bourne from whence no traveler has yet returned. His death came so suddenly that his wife, who was in Kansas, and and his brother, who was in North western Nebraska, could not be with him in his last hours. Howev er Mrs. Connrardy arrived to-day and also his brother, Jack. His father. Mr. John B. Connrardy. had arrived home on the morning of Monday. Walter had a large circle of young friends and many were the sad hearts as the news spread on July Fourth that Walter had passed away. Thus, in the morning of life, was lie stricken down, when life was just opening up to its sterner realities his carreer ends. The sympathies of this whole town and community go out to Mr. and Mrs. Connrardy in their sad bereave ment, and to the sisters and broth er. And especially do they sorrow with the young wife, so sooti left alone with the responsibilities of life resting upon her. Walter Conn rardy was born Dec. 21-i, 1879, died July Fourth, 1891), age 19 years, 6 months and 11 days. The funeral was held today from the family home in Exira, Rev. Wissler of the Congregational church officiating. Mrs. Caimichael Mrs. George Henshaw, Edwin Dela lioyde and Peter Thielen gave the music. May He, who doeth all things well, bring comfort to these sad hearts. New Dentist. Fred M. Hunt, of the firm of Will iams & Hunt, the Atlantic Dentists, will be in Exira each day in the week except Monday. Office in the Ridgley Block. \liout nn Even Thing. A well known member of the Detroit bar tells this story "Some years ago I attended a session of the circuit court up iu the state. A pro confesso divorce case was called and it so happened that the jndsje was very much opposed to di vorces, especially those which were un opposed. After the attorney for the complainant in this case had announced himself as ready to proceed, the judge asked if any one appeared for the de fendant. There was silence for a mo ment, and the judge repeated the ques tion. At one end of the lawyers' table sat an attorney who had acquired the liquor habit and who was at the time considerably uuder the influence of stimulants. He was noticed struggling to get on his feet, and, on observing him, the judge seized the opportunity to ask: 'Do you appear for the defendant. Mr. Blank?' 'No, yonr honor. I merely rose to remark, as "friend of the court," that with Brother Doubleblank as attorney for the complainant and no one on the other side it was about an even thing.' "Then Blank resrtmed his seat while the whole court roared with laughter. —Detroit Free Press. Grip! Sore lungs! Pneumonia! Stop the disease by taking Dr. Miles' Nervine. fiudubop.

Milt is one of the hustlers and always has things in shape. D. W. Fullerton, Win. Thompson and W. C. Sheets have all pulled their engines into Gregg Wolfe's re pair shop where they will be over hauled and put in condition ready for the threshing season. Charley Bradley came in from Council Bluff's Friday and will stay until after the Fourth visiting his many friends. Charley is well re membered by many and seems to en joy meeting all of his old time asso ciates. Mrs. Joshua Jordan, of Cameron township, is stopping with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Aldrich and is receiving medical treatment. During her stay iu town Mrs. Aldricli is out to the farm, helping Joshua attend to the work on the farm. A few of the many young friends of George McFarlane assembled at the beautiful home of his parents Satur day evening and passed a pleasant evening, the event being iu honor of his birthday. The affair was an en joyable one and all present hope each succeeding year may bring such happy meetings.

They will stay and visit Charley Tal bot t, the popular restaurant man, for sometime until they can locate in business again. Judge W. R.

Anderson, southeast of town, one ot the largest and most successful fanners and stock raisers of the county has on his big farm, containing over a section of the best land in the Botna Valley, over 050 head of tine hogs which doubtless makes him the larg est hog breeder in the county.

This, in after years, will be one of the treasured events in the his tory of the church and every one should be present to witness the ceremony. Jake Hill and Ed. Voting, of Gree ley township, were in town Wednes day. Mr. Hill is a candidate for the nomination of sheriff" at the coming republican county convention and was looking after his chances.

At the end of the week last year there was only fi rolled against eighty-one this j1 on increase of thirty-one. It* is ex pected that the attendance will in crease as there always has been a steady enrollment until the closi the school. The county superintenu ent and his instructors are more than pleased with the attendance and inter est shown. At the close of the Review School the Normal Institute will con vene which promises to be the largest and most successful ever held in the county. The authorities of Audubon county recently notified our county officials that Mrs. Dan Beardsley had been de serted by her husband and was in des titute circumstances. A charge of $20.10 was made against this county for her support. This was paid and the Audubon county authorities were asked to send her to this county. They report that she is in delicate health and that she cannot lie returned at present. A man who would desert his wife who has already borne him four children and who is' now in such a condition of health is beneath con tempt and deserves nothing better than tar and feathers. Mrs. Beardsley is ail estimable young woman and it is a shame that she has been thus treated.—Denison Review. In the list of McGuire-Cunningham wedding presents published last week we omitted John Weighton and wife, silver salad spoon. It is difficult to obtain a complete list of so many pre sents and if any names are omitted it is our mistake. Mr. and Mrs. LaHue, of Greenfield Edgar and Mary McClure, of Fontan elle, drove across to Audubon Saturday stopping at Exira to call on Mrs. MacK Thomas. They spent Sunday with Mrs. LaHue's parentsMr. and Mrs. E. Baxter, returning home Mon day. J. H. Hearseman, Audubon's effi cient and popular undertaker, was in Exira Tuesday assisting D. E. Shrau ger. Mr. Hearseman is a man of recognized ability as an undertaker having had years of experience, which with the study he has devoted to the business, marks liini authority as to the best means and method of successful undertaking. As the coming republican conven tion approaches the interest in tile various candidates increase and by the day the 'convention arrives the usual interest will be displayed. The men seeking the support of the dele gates to be chosen are all worthy and honorable. The results whatever they may be, wiii surely be most satisfac tory as all seeking a nomination have the best feelings ror those who are contending for the same honors. The Clover Leaf Quartette is soon to have a rival. Four of our most musi cal ladies have signed articles of agreement and commenced practicing on the finest and choicest selections that can be obtained. Tliev have not selected a name but if the ladies will allow us the honor we can give them the most appropriate title that could be obtained and if they do not name the quartette soon we will introduce them to the public with a name of our own. One of the most pleasant picnic par ties of the season was held in Stanley's fine grove south of Hamlin last Friday afternoon, being given iu honor of Miss Rose Johnson, the guest of Miss Nora Thomas of the Park hotel. Re freshments were prepared and taken along with which a most palatable lunch was served. The afternoon was pleasantly spent under the dense can opy of the gian*: oaks of the forest where swings, hammocks and other couveniencies were enjoyed.

Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Yager, of Viola township, mourn the loss of their little boy who passed away and was laid to rest Sunday in the cemetery at Viola Center. A bright ray of hope and a tender loved one has passed away and the home that was all joy and sunshine is now clouded with sorrow and overhung with gloom. The precious thoughts and memories of days past in youthful prattle and childhood innocense and the cherish ed and expected hope of meeting the dear one on the distant shores of time, gives comfort to the bereaved. Kind friends and neighbors share the sor row and extend their sympathy while boyhood purity and love have been wafted away to the realm where the pure and the good dwell in eternal bliss awaiting those who are left be hind for a few short fleeting years. The last sad rites were performed by the Rev. L. J. I*. Smay. of the Evan gelical church who spoke words of cheer and comfort and gave assurance of the final meeting with the loved one in the world beyond, without end. The entertainment given by the members of the Simpson College Con cert company last week was one of the finest exhibitions ever given tu the people and every one says it was a, decided success and do not tire in speaking words of praise for every member of the company.
