f % I LOCAL FLASHES. l Z $ Hymen Loves June. A very pretty wedding occurred at Newman lake last Sabbath, whence Rev. W. C. Beebe of this place was called to perform, the ceremony that made Mr. George Wendler and Miss Anna M. Hood husband and wife. The bride is a beautiful and highly accomplished young lady of Trumbull county, Ohio, who arrived from the cast on the evening preceding the wedding, and the bridegroom is a highly respectable and prosperous young farmer, who has resided at Newman lake a number of years. The nuptials took place at the bride groom's residence, where afterward a fine eolation was served. During the performance of the ceremony the con tracting parties stood beneath a wed ding bell of Oregon grape and other beautiful wildflowers, hung in an archway. There were no guests pres ent except members of the family. The young couple have the good wish es of a host of friends. May life's rugged pathway for them be strewn with thornless roses. Another June Wedding. Quite a sensation was created in the neighborhood of Ramsey Tuesday when it was discovered by her folks that Miss Mary Coleman had left her school and eloped to Rathdrum with Charles Dingmun to get married. The young lady, who is below the age of consent, being scarcely 17, got leave from her teacher to go home, on the pretext of being ill with headache. Upon leaving the school room she was met by Charles Dingman, who accom panied her home, and her folks being absent, they packed up the young la dy's effects and proceeded to this place where thenuptial knot was tied byJus tice A. W. Post. The couple then left for Spokane, imagining all the time that they soon would be hotly pursued by an enraged father. But the lather of the bride, while greatly deploring his child's disobedience, took a philosophical view of the situa tion, And left the couple go on their way in peace. May the waters of the sea upon which this couple have launched their tiny craft never grow turbulent, and may it forever steer clear of divorce cliffs. Some Fine Strawbenies. O. C. Smith of Hope dropped in to see the editor Thursday and presented us with a bunch of ten strawberries which were raised on his farm, and were the largest and most lusci jus ber ries we have seen for a long time.

He said: My method of caring for strawber ry plants is somewhat different from < t most farmers, and you may think it a rather unique way, but neverthe less 1 find it very successful. I plant my strawberries three feet apart each way, and am very careful in the spring to keep all the runners hack, After the crop of berries is harvested, 1 cut off the plants level with the ground, leaving nothing but the roots, I then scatter the leaves, and when Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Renort Baking Powder Absolutely pure sufficiently dry hum them as they lie. I use no fertilizer on my strawberry ground, more than the ashes which remain after burning the leaves of the plants. I have about two acres into strawberries and this season's crop will he upwards of 4,000 boxes. This fall I expect to set out about 30.000 plants more. By this method straw berry plants will produce well for at least seven years. I use the Jersey strawberry principally, and would recommend that variety for market. 55 On« Fare For the Kounil Trip.
