-- Once again we are called up to mourn the death of a respectable member of our community. Mrs. Martha Seed Thornley, wife of John Thornley, passed away peacefully to the great beyond on Monday evening at 10 o'clock pm. She was in her 75th year.
-- Judge Phillips and his party of mighty hunters, who went out to the Black Pines Country in quest of the fleet footed deer, came home last Saturday ever crowned with the glory of a successful trip. There were 6 persons in the party and they brought home 18 deer.
-- H. J. Sheffield had a narrow escape from losing his leg Tuesday morning while boarding the train. His legs caught between the platform and the car steps. By a dexterous movement of his physique he succeeded in lodging himself safely on the coach.
-- Mrs. Levi Webster passed away Sunday at 3pm after an illness of about a week. She leaves a husband and 11 children. Her death is made particularly sad from the fact that her family are just at an age when a mother's tender care is most needed.
