Good, fishing in the Sawlog since the raia. Orwell vs. Jetmare, Saturtjay tha 11th. Look out for a good game. S.

Troutman, this week killed a rat tle snake measuring four feet and four inches in length. The many friends of G. A. Williams, of Sterling have for the past few days been tslking up his chances for the office of Clerk of the DiHtrict Court. We have not learned whether or not Mr.

Williams has consented to euter the field. The game of base ball played at Middle Branch between the Orwell aud Middle Branch N'mes resulted in favor of the Middle Branch boys. The score stood 39 to 8, After the game the Or well boys were invited to partake of a supper, which they did, and came home well pleased, notwithstanding fliir (lnf their defeat. There will bo a large number of pu pils attend the Orwell high school dur ing thp winter term. Everything is being done to make it the best school in the county, and with Supt.

Waver as principal the school certainly must suc ceed, Miss Newport wilL have charge of the primary department. The campaign has begun, pr at least we suppose so from the indications. A leading candidate passed through Orwell reoently, with a large box in the front part of his carriage marked: "Stomach Bitters," t'The Great Liver Invigorator and Kidney Corrector." HoweVBr, it might have been as protection against malaria. A petition is being circulated and very numerously signed, at Jesmore, asking the probate judge to revoke the li-sences of all druggists to sell intoxicating liquors. Another petition is in cir- ulation, and being signed by almost all the inhabitants exoept those that are candidates for oulutt and do not want to com mit themselves, asking the probate judge require druggists to soli bottled beer twenty i.vijtfi buttle.

This lil.t move supposed to bo in the interest of can- idiitea and for the utiriiose of nvlncina tmpaigu expenses. lied man, Sheriff of Hush coun ty, was at Orwell on Tuesday, looking ten bead of horses and colts and the otiug Liny who Hiom in rharge. The hordes were, stolen 'from tho tiorlh de of Bush county, by a gnl who was- moviag slowly towards the Indian Ter- tory with the outfit. She had, when last seen, a light spring wagon without any seat. Was driving two of the horses and leading sii head.

The other two head were colts, and following. Several parties, saw her and talked with her. She was apparentl not more than eigh teen years of age, quite small in statne and rather modest appearing. Sheriff Redman was within three or four miles of her several times but she changed her route so often that he finally lost all trace of her. Ther was a party of four men, all well armed, who stemed to keep close to her track and was believed to belong to the outfit.

It is presumed that the thieves were from the I 'dian Territory and were making their way officers: W. M. CONGDOX, President; J. AL. MACK, Viee-Prwideiit; T.
