Those who heard this talented speaker during her recent series of lectures in this city, will be glad to know that her services have been engaged and that she will deliver two of her best lectures in the M. E. Church in this city on the evenings of Tuesday and Wednesday, December 29 and 30. Throughout the whole vocabulary of female orators on the rostrum, Helen M.

On Tuesday evening her subject will be, "My Cuban Journey," in which she will give the cyclo "The public telephone," thinks one, is the reason why so many visit the Central Drug Store of Cal. James. but the idea is eroneous, as the people go there to get handsome Christmas presents. To look at the array of handsome and useful articles one would think that it were useless to lay in such a stock, but to examine the sales, one will quickly see that the public are appreciating the successful trial of keeping on sale such handsome gifts, as they are being sold at a rate which is astonishing.

Quite a number of these handsome plush goods were added Tuesday, and any one desiring to procure articles of this nature, should not fail to go to Cal.

It will be remembered that The Resident published some school items in the latter part of October, saying among other things, "school will commence at 8:30 a. These items came from good authority. In the same issue, of a later print, it contradicted the statement, by authority of the Board.

"This latter was not sufficient, it seems as bills were put on the highway of "an eroneous statement having appeared in The Resident," thus giving the editor of that paper a slap in the face, without any he was misinformed," but a good square slap, with the tone of unreliability squarely stated. Rattle his bones, over the stones, he's only an who cares if he groans. Its a long lane that gathers no moss. By our quiet, sneaking, eves-dropping, contemptable way, we found out that the fundamental starting of that editor-humiliating circular emanated from some of the ladies of Belle Plaine -no use to deny it, because we knoweth whereof we affirmeth.

Again, he will take a job and promise to deliver it in good shape, and, if in the repairing a nut is gone, or a wear crack appears in the iron which escaped his notice in the start, he always puts the extra work on, but never says its more than I thought," in order to get a little more money.
