The following, from the Brecken- ridge, (Colorado,) Journal, of Satur day last, will be of local interest, as the young man in question was for merly a resident of L'Anse: "At "Rosedale Camp, Keystone, South Dakota, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Griffith, Wednesday, occurred the marriage of Charles R. Auge, of Breckenridge. to Miss Lufanny Kinnie, of New York state. The ceremony was witnessed by only a few Intimate friends of the Griffith family, as on account of the distance, none of the invited friends from Breckenridge attended. Tbe wedding' was the culmination of a case of "love a first sight-" and tbe friends or both parties hope it -will remain "true love" all through life. Mr. Auge is tbe exchange manager of the Colorado Telephone Co., and one of the most popular young, men in Breckenridge. Mrs. AugdV'is a lady possessed of a charming per sonality, and their borne here will undoubtedly be the scene of many social gatherings during the coming winter." LOCAL ITEMS. S. D. Murphy was at Hancock Thursday. - N. M. DeHaas, of Skanee, was a copper country visitor Thursday. A meeting of the Ladies Home Missionary Society of the M. E. church will be held at the home of Mr 8. M. Hansen, Thursday after noon. Nov. 8th, at 2:30 o'clock. Miss Gertrude Bulger returned Monday from Duluth, where ebe bad been called by the illness of her sister. . , . - the regular meeting of the ., common council, mere was not 'a quorum present, and the meeting was adjourned to Thursday evening next, November 8th. L'Anse can justly point with a feeling of shame to a number of so called young men residing within her borders, and also to an older person, (who is unworthy tbe name of a man,) for a low-lived, filthy trick perpertrated Hallowe'en night. The lowest beasts, (com monly known as bogs) would never stoop so low. Stop! Look! Read! Conant tographers. have Ioc r a period of two make all classes ork. Special attention bys' pictures.

Church Again Prove Their Ability as Entertainers. Had tbe writer of. the popular song, "Coon, Coon, Coon," been present at tbe chicken pie supper, which was served under tbe auspices of tbe Ladies Aid Society of tbe M. E. church, Thursday' evening, he would not have been lost for words to supply,another song proclaiming its merits with "chicken on every side." To say that tbe event this year was a grand success, is putting it mildly. Never in the history of the society, has there been an entertain ment of this nature given which proved such a success, either from a financial or social standpoint. The proceeds amounted to $120, which far exceeds many similar events of previous years. During the evening the candy and flower booths were well patronized, and all who partook of the bountiful supper left tbe ball with words of praise on their lips for tbe ladies of the society. SCHOOL NOTES. Miss Shea took charge of Miss Bulger's work during tbe absence of tbe latter last week. Some of the lady teachers want! to know who the young man is that teaches at Keweenaw. Bay. Speak up, young man, speak up. The sun took pity on our fast dis appearing wood-pile and came out again Thursday. We have been quite comfortable since the stoves were put In. A penmanship -class has been formed in the high school room. It occupies tbe first twenty minutes )o tbe morning. A spelling class will aho.take tbe last twenty min utes Fridays. Work on the new building is go ing rather slowly, owing to the de lay in tbe delivery of material. Most of the lathing is done and windows in. Plastering will in all probability be commenced next week. The teacher's report for the month of October show 17-1 pupils in tbe L'Anse school; 104 in Pe quaming, 21 at Nestoria, 24 at Her man, 31 at the Mission, 30 at the Bay Shore. The per cent of attend ance in some of tbe schools is not us good as it should be, Tbe L'Anse township teachers met in the High School room Sat urday last, at 9:30 a. m, Present, Supt. Morrison, Principal Taper, Principal Yokum,a tbe Misses Jen sen, LeDuc, Justema, Stewart, Mc Cabe, Curry, Laura and Helen Ed gerton. Absent, the Misses Sterk and Bulger.
