W. B. WALLER AN OLD STOVE When in the little city of Ful ton a few weeks ago, we were shown a stove by our friend, Obe Wilson, that has been in actual service for nearly 26 years, and strange to say that it has been for that length of time in the Saloon business. This stove was bought by W. Y. Foster of Hope, who was in the Hardware business at that time, on Feb. 17th 1884. It was bought by W. E. Carter who opened up what was called the Monarch saloon in Fulton in that same month. The stove is branded “Saint Louis” and is a 36 inch stove, well preserved, perhaps better now than a great many much newer ones. The stove is now owned by Obe Wilson and he takes great pride in telling his friends about its career. Mr. Carter who first built a fire in this stove is traveling for the Bonnie Bros, of St. Louis, and ^r. Foster who sold this wonderful stove, has long since quit the hardware business and is among the upper financial class of the state. He is one of the leading spirits in the beauti ful little city of Hope, while Obe Wilson the present proud owner of this stove is in Fulton dealing out the leading spirits of that town. Mrs. Green Blake returned to her home after a few days visit with friends and relatives.— Waldo News. LETTER ON HOG LAW FROM S. H. PITTMAN Urges the Farmers to Vote Against It, Gives His Reasons. To the voters of Nevada County: I wish to say to you that I think it would be to our mutual interst for us all to vote against the hog law, for it is impossible for us to make enough to feed our hogs from one year to another. As it is now we can get the benefit of the range through the spring and summer and fall and with a little feed we can make some nice meat out of our hogs. Now a word to the renter. You hav’nt any pasture or even a pen to keep your hogs in and the landlord will not furnish you a place to keep them. They cannot furnish you timber and hire you to build a pen for your hogs, neither will they be inclined to furnish you and your hogs something to eat. It is a hard matter to get a merchant to furnish you and your family something to eat, much less a bunch of hogs. I want you to study your own interest before you vote on this question. Another thing, I do not believe that those who live in the Incorporated town should be allowed to vote in this election. They have their laws and we farmers are not allowed to help make them either, and we are not even disposed to want to help make their laws as that is none of our business. It seems to me that the only fair and just way is for us farmers to settle this question among ourselves. Why should a clerk in a dry goods store say whether I should let my hogs run out or not? I think this a fair proposition. I want to hear from others on this matter. Give this your best thought and be sure you do your own think | ing and do not let some one else do it for you. Yours against hog law, Sam H. Pittman. EPWORTH LEAGUE PROGRAM Sunday, June 13th. Christian Education.—Martin Guthrie. What has been the value to me, of the gospel ministry?— , Verdie Nichols.

July 1st, for the purpose of electing direct ors, and to transact any other business that may come before the meeting. B. F. Wynn, Pres. W. E. Marsh, Sec. INTERESTING LETTER FROM PRESCOTT Mrs. N. L. Harman Writes Interesting Letter to Home Folks. The following letter from Mrs. N. L. Harmon, who with Mr. Harmon and family recently moved to Prescott. Ark., will be found interesting: “Our. trip was such a delight ful one that I thought it might be interesting to some of the folks at home. On leaving Co lumbus the weather was quite cold and winter wraps felt good. We left Columbus on the Pan Handle, a division of the Penn sylvania line. The car was comfortable and the conductor very kind and accommodating. The road is a splendid one on which to travel, making only nine stops between Columbus and St. Louis, the distance being 430 miles. “As we neared St. Louis we began to feel the change in climate. As we arrived at St. Louis, we passed over the Missis sippi river, a remarkable sight, large steamers, both passenger and freight afloat, also the dif ferent harbors to be seen, one large one in particular owned by Swift and Co. This makes one think how much of the world’s produce is transported over the water. As we cross the river we enter the union depot and here we change cars, thus giv ing us a chance to see and ad* mire this magnificent structure. “This depot is adapted to all classes of people, containing first and second class dining rooms, waiting rooms, reading rooms, smoking rooms, every thing imaginable for the comfort of the traveler. “On leaving St Louis we secured an excellent train on the Iron Mountain route, the conductor and train auditor be ing very accommodating, kindly answering the unlimited amount of questions and looking after the welfare of the passengers in general. What a beautiful sight riding along almost parrellel with the Mississippi, for the distance of twenty-six miles, with the Missis sippi on the left and the U. S. Jefferson barracks on the right, the soldiers on picket duty in suits of olive green guarding our harbors constantly' “It is very instructive to travel as you ride along especially so when passing from a cold climate into a warm one in the spring of the year. As you ride along, first you notice the green grass then the budding out of the trees, then the violets galore, then orchards in full bloom, then the green oats fields and then the corn fields, the corn being from 5 to 6 inches high, and at last we have reached Prescott. Here spring work is over and we find the ins, the lily and the Marchio nelle rose in bloom. “The climate here is delight ful. It is warm during the day and we have a continual breeze owing to the prairie country near us. It is so dear to see the little girls going to school in their sun bonnets and some of the urchins barefooted. “We find Prescott a very pro gressive town, with a population of four thousand, and .the south ern hospitality predominates. No knockers; all boosters.’’ Wyan dot Union-Republican, Upper | Sandusky. Ohio.
