The Sentinel's Annual Record of Births in Holt County During the Year 1909. "During the year 1909, the stork has made a goodly number of visits, and while he has not made as many calls as he did in the year previous or dur ing the year 1897, he made many more than he did in the years 11)04, 1905, 1906, or 1907, his visits, when our final record is made up, will show they are far in excess of the visits made by the silent messenger, who has brought bereavement to many homes. lie made the greater number of visits during the month of Jannary, a total of 24. His first calls were made on January 3d, at the homdS of J. W Bundle, Ed. Schneider and George Wise, leaving boys at the homes of the two latter, and a girl at the for mer's home.

The county medicheld their meeting in our city at the office of Dr. Proud, on Monday, and while there was not a very large number present, those who did attend seemed greatly interested. Dr. Proud and, Dr. Quigley read papers. It Is Different Now. Uncle Jonas Whitmer, of Mound City, while attending court this week, came in and chatted with us. Just before he came Uncle Abe Loucks did the same, and it is always a great pleasure to meet these gentlemen. The price of lands came uj?, and Uncle Jonas said he and his brother Peter, Sol Loffer, Johnny Kyle, Ed. j Blackney and John Zimmerman back j abont the war time bought the whole of 33, in 62, 38 at $5 an acre: the two brothers let go of their portion, and went over to Nebraska, and tried to farm, owning at the time, the land,' where Auburn, is now located, after a while, they let go this land at $5 per acre, and they then came back, and bought land in 4,. 62, 38, paying $10 per acre. The land now we be lieve is owned by Jerry Eowlett. In 1880 Mr. Loucks said he bought an 80 in 29, 63, 31 for $2,200, and the second 80 he paid $2,000 for. None of these lands today would be. sold for less than $125 an acre. A Mighty Close Call. . Fire came near cleaning out the front row of houses in Bigelow Mon day evening, of this week, January 10th. The tire started in the Shep herd livery barn, and how it originat ed perhaps will never be definitely known, the only theory is that some one went into the barn, to light a pipe or cigar, and dropped the live ember of the match. It was not discovered until it had made good headway burning out some two or three stalls, and had reached the hay loft. It was fortunate that all the hay was in the bale, and thus did not burn rapidly had it been loose in the mow, nothing could have saved the building. By heroic efforts on the part of the citizens, good judgment, on the part of many, the greater part.' of the building was saved. 1 Lin Carroll had a close call from fire, Monday of this week) During the night gasoline had leaked out of the stove and when he started to light it in the morning, the gasoline exploded and threatened to become serious. It was, however, smothered, and not much damage done. Mrs. Geo.C.Kaucherhas returned to her home in Memphis, Tenn., after a visit here with her parents, T. C. Dungan and wife.
