Who ever heard of a successful love story where the lovers were not frequently quarrelling and sending back gifts; who ever heard of a man's business being a success who never had any thing 1 to worry over; who ever lived in a community and seen a church organization that wasn't occasionally talking of some member. Even politicians have their disappointments and their occasional scandals. It seems that to reach success in any undertaking it is almost necessary to go through trials, quarrels, hardships and disappointments. Jack Bates is selling Deering Binders and Mowers, Hay Rakes, this year, as usual.

His headquarters are at the Lawrence Hardware Co's. Call and see him for prices. A Blight Storm.

G. The Doings At Night. Last Monday night was a fine one; no rain, no mud, no clouds, no wind, but a warm, pleasant moonlight evening. It was the closing of decoration day, our band which is a splendid one, gave an open air concert on the band stand; the ladies aid society of the M. E.

church gave an ice cream social the vacant room opposite the park on R. R. street. Everybody was out walking or riding. Young people and old people alike enjoyed the evening; enjoyed the band music; enjoyed the ice cream and enjoyed the crowd that was out.

For The Occasion ---Decoration Day. Our stores, streets and dwelling houses were nicely decorated with flags and pictures. This year, usual, the store of A. J. Perry Co.

took the lead in window decorations. Chas. Kaufman had arranged in the window a fine picture of the ill fated battle ship Maine lying in a bed of flags; in the window were also life size portraits of the six most talked of men today, Dewey. Schley, Sampson, McKinley, Lincoln and Grant. The other stores of the town were nicely decorated with flags and bunt- ing.

Commencement Week. The past week has been commencement week at the A.C, H. S. in Effingham. Quite a number of Nortonville people, mostly young folks, have attended the exerdises there on different nights of the week.

Nortonville people are quite liberal in attending Effingham entertainments and the Efingham people return the conrtesy. Struck by Lightning A. valuable horse belonging to A. J. White was killed by lightning last week, and Andy kept on talking politics.

Style, fit and wear in our shoes. Griffin Son. Decoration Day. to Monday was a beautiful day, an ideal Decoration Day. The G.

A. R. boys had things their way. Thirty-four of them gathered at teir hall at the appointed hour land at 2.308o clock, headed by the band and flower girls, marched to the Presbyterian church. The church was handsomely and patriotically decorated, flags and ing having been used profusely in the work.

Pictures of Generals Sherman, Logan and Hancock were bung on the walls. A male quartette rendered some good 14 music. The address of the day was by Dr. Bailey of Topeka. The house WitS crowded to overflowing, yet while the Dr.

was speaking it was perfectly quiet all over the house and everyone was intently interested in what the learned divine was saying. He was followed by Rev. Geo. Hills, who delivered very patriotic and well-received address. After the exercises at the church were concluded the line of march to the cemetery was taking up, and hundreds witnessed the decoration exercises there.

The ritulistic work of the G. A. R. for this performance is very handsome and was well done. The Post seems to have selected the right men for the varilous offices and much praise was bestowed on officers Kirkpatrick, Maxson, Haskell and Burns for their splendid deportment.

The old soldier boys looked their best and, bearing their grizzily (those that werenot bald)most all of them would yet be fighting soldiers, if their country needed them. Too much honor can not be bestowed on the old soldiers, and their patriotism should be praised, and it is not waneing a bit for we almost have to tie some of the old fellows up to keep thom from going to Spain. The messenger of death has again visited our community, and this time his summons was for Mrs. Eleanor Hood, the wife of Mr.S. E.

Hood, one of our worthy and highly respected citizens. For some time the deceased was not enjoying very good health, but no serious results from her illness were anticipated until about two weeks before her death, when it became evident to those who were competent to judge, that the end was not far distant. The deceased was born in Perry April 7, 1833. Was married Jan. 30, 1861, and died May 28, 1898, In the days of her youth she became a member of the German Reform church.

At the time of her death she was an esteemed and beloved member of the United Presbyterian church of Nortonville, Kansas. She loved the house of God and was faithful in attending its services. Her religion was of the heart, and therefore was manifest in the life, and in the excellent christian character of the six sons anddaughters who survive to mourn their loss and to rejoice in her gain. The funeral services were held in the U. P.

church on Sabbath, May 29, '98 at 2 p. m. The church was full to overflowing, of freinds and neighbors. An appropriate sermon was delivered by the pastor of the church from the text: "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God." The bereaved family have the sympathy and kind wishes of the whole community. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord." Obituary.
