buyer to the highest pinacle to

A talk with the farmers of this
community reveals and will con
vince you that they have all kinds
of confidence in the future pros

them are putting in all the grain
for which they can prepare ground
as well as putting up fences, build
ing dams and enlarging their houses
and out buildings. The cotinual
rise in the prioe of land is more
evidence that there are others that
are beginning to take notice of

The people of Philip made a
great fuss when folks from here
went up there during the scarlet

The dedication of the Methodist

the meantime fix the date in your

that occasion.—Quinn Courant.

Northwestern Observes Sunday
The Chicago & Northwestern
railroad has determined to make
Sunday a day of rest as far a.s
possible. Work in all depart
ments of the road, other than in
those actually necessary to the
operation of the system, will be
suspended and the employes given
the day to themselves. A similar
plan was announced last week by
the United States Steel corporation.
The new scheme of the North
western was put into effect last
Sunday when from 7 a in. to 7 p.
only passengers and perishable
freight was moved throughout the
system of 9,000 miles. While it is
of course impossible to give to all
railroad employes a day off on Sun
day, it is estimated that the plan
will allow from 10,000 to 12,000
men, chiefly members of train
crews and freight handlers, to
spend the day at home.
Baseball Gossip
The baseball season is at hand.
The essential apparatus of base
ball is simple and inexpensive. All
that is required is a field, a stick,
the ball itself and police protection
for umpire. One advantage of the
game as played professionally is
that those sitting in the grand
I stand can play the game a great
|.deal better than the eighteen men
on the diamond. It is also true
that any one of the spectators,
even though perched on a tele
phone pole across the street or
looking through a knothole in the
fence beyond right field car judge
of the pitcher's skill or the runner's
fleetness much more intelligently
than the arbiter who stands behind
the battery. The great merit of
the game is that the people can
participate in it. It is not synony
mous with silence. The thing to
do is to take off your coat and root
as long and as loudly as you can,
even if you don't know what is
