It has made a large amount of ice, for which it has had a good market during the sum raer, and still has a supply on hand. Forest City ice is noted for its excel lence Forest City News. The Craig Leader informs us that John S. Bilby, now 77 years of age, and Miss Eva Smith, of Bushnell, Ills., were recently married at Bushnell He has been a widower for some 20 years and his present wife was a niece of his former wife. A rural mail carrier, of our coun ty, proposes to use an automobile af ter this. He says when he puts a mail order catalog or a patent medicine advertisement in the box, he will honk the horn once, and when it's a real letter, he'll honk twice. This seems to us to be all honky dory. L. P. Sentney and family moved this week to Hutchinson, Kas., as their future home.

During the circuit court at Char leston, Mississippi count', several persons who have notable names, were on the carpet.

Mohler, who a number of years ago was connected with our cannery, then later in charge of the Savannah canning factory, has re turned to St. Joseph from Galena, Missouri, where, for the past two years, he has had charge of a canning factory. He returns because they can't raise the stuff to can down in the Ozark country like they can in Northwest Missouri. Several have asked us lately about J. E. Strickler, the man who recently bought Mack Ulmer's big 776 acre stock farm, paying over $46,000 for it. Mr. Strickler resides near Skidmore, and owns 220 acres of fine land there. Also 720 acres near Craig and 80 acres near Clearmont. Besides this, he rents all the pasture ground he can, and keeps it all covered with cattle that he ships from his ranches in the southwest Hopkins Journal. The Missouri river has been cut ting into the land pretty badly again, southeast of town. The rip-rapping crew who had to abandon the work at that point on account of the high stage of the water this summer, took their boats away when the work was stopped. It was the intention to re sume work as soon as the river went down again, but up to this time it has not been done. A peculiar feature is the fact that the worst damage to the banks against which the current flows, is done when the water is low or rather, as it is receding. Two of the revetment piers constructed by the rip-rapping crew, last spring, have been washed out and mostly carried away, representing a damage of con siderable magnitude. Craig Leader.

Heckathorne met with a very painful accident last Thursday, j He was tightening bolts on the rail road track, just north of the depot and the wrench he was using slipped off the bolt, letting him fall on one of the rails, dislocating his right hip. He was carried to his home and Dr. Hogan called, who set the hip in place and it is thought he will get along al right, but will be laid up for about a month Jeffersonian The Rockport Journal says, "A miniature airship, No. 261, landed on John Oswald's farm, south of town, at 5:30 Tuesday evening. It was sent up by the Mount Observatory, at Bluemont, Va., the same day and consequently traveled about 2,000 miles at a remarkably rapid rate, and it was exhibited at the High school. A card attached to the machine re quested its return to Bluemont at once, and for its return Mr. Oswald will receive $2." It was later found to be a weather baloon and was sent up several days previous and so did not travel as rapidly as the dates on the machine indicated. October 5th, 1909, will doubtless be remembered by several fond mam mas, as on that day, eight little pink- ety-wces came to brighten their homes. These were: S. C.

FItzmaurice, living above Forest City, lost one of his corn cribs, bv tire, Thursdav evening ot last week, October 8th. He was away from home at the time, and can not account for the origin of the lire. Visitors to our little city this summer, and especially those who had formerly resided here, were loud in their praises of the neat condition ' of our cemeteries. They have never , looked so well as this year, and the . community owes the "Mum'' society a debt of gratitude. Those who have dear ones sleeping over on the hill, should see that this work is kept up. , The society asks each lot owner for j the small sum of aieachseason and in j return keeps the lots, in fact, the cemeteries in good condition. The dollar is not a "gift" or "donation." The bankers of group three of the state bankers was in session at St. Joseph Monday and Tuesday of this week.

He had unexpectedly won first premium, $15 on the best ear of corn. He was offered $25 for the ear, but declined it. The managers of the fair will exhibit the ear at the Omaha and Chicago corn shows this fall.
