The nartv caught a nice lot of fish. Some', of them were so long J3T JB and others longer. The party had plenty to eat and drink, however there was nothing stronger than good Mocha cptTee and Oolong tea. The boys sat rotyid the camp tires all night, telling wfld western stories, and every now- and then shivering as they heard the innocent bark of a belated prairie dog which they took to be vicious wolves and Jackals ready to devour them, while the ladies in their cozy tents slept the sleep of peaco. The party all got back safely and reported a good time.

Mrs. Squires says the boys acted real nice, and the young ladies were perfection itself. A3 the News reporter writes those lines he sets near a handsome Hose which graced the party, aud re-mainsthe same beautiful Rose. P. S.

McDonald, former editor of the old reliable Miltonvale News, is in luck. He has been appointed to the position of postal clerk on the Rock Island railway.

W.A.

my goods. I will take pleasure shewing let live 32 Doctor lieatty, Frank McUee, and Dr. Realty, droyo over to Pipe creek last Thursday and thence on within six niiks of Ottawa court house. The gang captured a big lot of fish, about perhaps less than three thousand, consumed a tub of victuals and drank one prong of Pipe creek dry. They had a dorsum time, and their eyes stuck out with fun next day.

We want to exonerate Charles L. Wilson from any intention of doing the editor of tho News any wrong in regard to the stories alloat about our trying to get the postollico at Miltonvale. Had it not been for Mr. Wilson, we would not have knowlt ot the matter as soon as we did. lie, Wilson, sent for the editor of tho News and told him who brought the story to this city and who told him.

Mr. Wilson has acted the man in this matter as he has always done in every tiling else so far as we have ever known. Charles L. Wilson and J. C.

Cline have been the suffering parties at the hands of tho malevolent party who conceded and peddled out these venomous falsehoods. This party may as well climb down off his roost for we are on his track and mean business. Failed to Show Up. open-eared public are anxious to have the gentleman who left his bed and board in Concordia and came to Miltonvale under the pretense of friendship and told certain parties that C. Cline was trying to get the Milton vale postollice, either for himself or his son, make his statements true or acknowledge he has lied.

The parties into whose ears that cruel talo of wrong-doing was poured, should nave come to the editor. I his would have been the proper way, the manly way, and one miht be led to think the christian way. Now where are the parties, or party, who started this lie Echo answers where 1 Where i3 that "letter'' that was to make it plain Yes, where is it, gentlemen You have charged J. C. Cliun with having made application for the Mil tonvale postollice.

I know who the party is. so do the people of Miltonvale know You must come forward with your proof or stand out like Ananias of old. It don't amount to anything to certain ones how much they besmirch the editor's character. Poor old Tray suffered for getting into bad company. If our Miltonvale friends had closed their ears to the mangy whelp from Concordia, there would had been no cause for complaint.

We do not think any man in this eity intended to do us any harm. They were mislead by a man they trusted. The editor of the News has only good will for those who, perhaps, uninten tionally injured him. Life is too short for indulgence of strife. The man who brought about all this trouble wo are glad to say is not a citizen of jmUIou-vale.

Zahnville Items. Frank Gilchrist has traded for a span of mules. Is Charley Kuhnle trying to buy a farm in Zahnville F. B. Stowe and wife started for Trego county last week.

J. L. Hubbard and wife and daughter Louie took a trip to Clay Center Monday. Some of tho Zahnville boys visited the Spring Mound Sunday school last Sunday. They are very thorough in their teaching, and when we were there thev read their lesson from the bible.

Some folks went a fishing over here, and right on Sunday too, and got to quarreling about the size of the linn thpy had caught, but agreed to settle it by weight. A. claimed to have the largest fish, but B. did not want to lie about a little cat-fish, so he put a stone in its mouth on the sly which got him into trouble. Moral: It is very wrong to lie about the size of a fish, S.
