August 21 and 22, $1.04 for round trip from Forest City. A Pleasant Surprise. Last Friday afternoon, August Oth, Miss Emma Bahler took Miss Amelia Vogel to Oregon and entertained her there as long as possible, while a crowd of about 45 young folks gathered at the home of Miss Amelia for the purpose of surprising her, it being her 18th birth day. Of course Miss Emma had an ex tra lot of shopping to do and was not in a great hurry to get home, but when she arrived at home, her brother, Ear nest, told her all kinds of "little white fibs," among them that there was to be a surprise party at a neighboring hous, and that he would take them over. They prepared to go and Amelia suspected nothing until they drove up to her home and she saw a team tied to the rack. She then said she was going to search the house over to see what was going on, but this was unnecessary, for the first, room she stepped into was full of young people. Then exclamations likp, "I'll stay at home next time,'' "I don't know what to do or say," were heard, but Amelia was soon composed enough to join in the games and enjoy herself with the others. Music was furnished by Miss Bertha Michel. The refreshments consisted of ice cream and cake. Many tokens of re membrance were received. At a late hour, after having had a merry time and having wished Amelia many more birthdays just as happy.they all departed to their homes feeling hap pier than they had for months, Those present were: Misses Nye, Hensley and Cropp, St. Joseph; Bertha and Jessie Michel, Emma Bahler, Min nie Lenz, Virgil Cropp, Effie Acton, Iva Dreher, Cora Kramer, Bessie Kneale, Louise Lenz, Goldie and Gracie Mcln tyre, Winnie Ashworth, Olga and Ma bel Poyner, Sophia Sommers, Gertrude Stadler, Stella Ashworth.

Through the kindness of R. C. Ben ton, we acknowledge the receipt of a fine basket of great big, luscious peaches I fromour old friends, Andrew B. Payne and wife, of Enid, Okla. We under stand that Andrew is one of the leading fruit growers of his section, and from the basket sent us, we believe what we have heard. Tuesday of this week, we were in the vicinity of Uncle John J. Adkins' place, about two and a half miles east of Corning, and knowing Uncle John as well as we did, could not resist the temp tation of making him a little call, so we drove over to his home, but he was out in the field, so we "hoofed" it over to where he was, and found him holding to the plow bandies, doing some fall break ing. This surprised us, ust a little, as hot as it was, but we suppose Uncle John will keep up his reputation for be ing a rustler as long as he can go. He sayB he has been crippled up with rheu matism, and this was the first day that he had attempted as hard work as ho was then doing. Well, we consider this pretty good exercise for a man Go years of age. Mr. Adkins was born in A nder son county, Tennessee, December 27, 1S42, and came to Holt county in 1S67. and settled on the farm on which he now resides. Uncle John says that he is I not making anything does not know j how he is going to get along. However, we saw no occasion for worry, for he has 540 acres of land in his home place, nil high and dry except 80 acres in the bot- torn which he uses for hay land. He i has a nice home, farmed well, stocked with hogs and horses; in fact, he has everything around him that a farmer needs to make farming a -uccess, and we believe Uncle Johnny will be able to pull through.
