Harrison Shaw of Parker township, was up to the hub Tuesday. An item of news will always be thankfully receiyed at this office. The rain has been indefinitely postponed on account of the weather. It is a well known fact that Ernest makes the best lemonade in the city. Geo.

L. Banks, clerk of Fawn Creek township, was at the metropolis last Monday. The signs of the times seems to point with all its fingers and thumbs to a drought. Men's wear restored to their former color and neatly cleaned at East Side Laundry, Cherryvale. J.

C. Hester, a rustling farmer, of Fawn Creek, was attending to business at the county seat Tuesday. Give us back the older version, with its fiery words so hot; naught but hell will suit this weather; hades and sheol tell it not. A man who will leave his horse hitched to a post in the broiling sun all day while he boozes, should be reminded that there is a law prohibiting cruelty to animals. H.

Col. C. P. Buflington, late of the Globe and Torch, came over from Cherryvale Wednesday and gave us a very pleasant call. Buff.

is a live and enthusiastic newspaper man and we hope soon to see him back in the ranks. Corn at Bowen's mill. The Tribune, in speaking of the Sells trial, says: "A special verrie of 90 jurors was imparmeled." This is a new feature in connection with a murder trial. The Sells trial is a peculiar case, however, and may necessitate a "verrie" and an "imparmel" of 90 jurors. How is it, Tribune? The skating rink at Elk City has been metamorphosed into a tabernacle.

Evangelist Haney, of Illinois, has taken possession of it and is holding a camp-meeting. He is having wonderful success; a large number of simicre have been ight into the fold, and many old members are being sanctified. Rev. A. Jones, pastor of the Congregational Church, of this city, died yesterday morning of typho-malarial fever.

The tuneral services were conducted at eight o'clock last evening by Rev. J. W. Ferrell, in the church from whose pulpit he has so often preached the Gospel, and the remains were taken to Dubuque, Iowa, for interment. J.

W. Frazier, of Fawn Creek, and Dan Pollett, of Coffeyville, were in the city this week on business, and were making inquiries about the reunion to be held here. They report that they are constantly hearing inquiries in regard to it, and it appears that everybody wants to attend. If a large crowd could be held in our city for four or five days no doubt considerable money would be left with our people. Secure Logan and the big crowd is certain, rain or no rain.

The third Ohio regiment association was organized in 1876, and since that date has held annual reunions. The roster contains names and postoflice addresses of over four hundred of the regiment. In proof of how the organization brings the boys together we give the following: On the 14th of July Dan Pollett and J. W. Frazier, of Fawn Creek township.

started north, traveling in a wagon, and at Earlton, Neosho county. found T. J. Reynolds, who joined them, and moving north to Buffalo, Wilson county, they struck G. W.

Darling, who entertained the party in fine style, and four of the boys who knew each other twenty years ago i in bivouac and battle, slept in the same house and broke bread at the same table. The joy of the old soldiers' meeting amply paid the Fawn Creek boys for their long travel, Candidates Running for Office, Young men contemplating the matrimonial step, every man taking steps of importance and in fact any man taking steps of any kind, should not fail to call on Etzold, famous boot and shoe maker just east of H.

Miss Birdie Lester spent Saturday REPORTER. Squibs from Pleasant Vale.

Everybody is haying. and Sunday in Independence. The Tyro base ballists say that they don't want any more fun at the expense of the boys of the Mr. Samuel Dobson, accompanied by his sister, Olive and cousin. Lizzie Dobson, is visiting near Cherokee.

Quite a serious accident occurred near Bee Monday. Mr. Potter was digging a well, and when about seventeen feet deep he struck rock where blasting was necessary. Mr. Sherman Johns, who was helping him, put a blast down and waited quite a while for it to go off, and thinking the fuse had gone out he ventured to look down.

At that instant it exploded, and a piece of rock striking him on the forehead, knocked him almost senseless. Park Strahan spent Sunday at his home at Bee. An ice cream supper was given by the Box Sunday School Saturday evening at Mr. Potter's, which proved to be a success. Jink Kinney managed the affair.

H. P. Strahan came home from South Mound Monday and will remain until Friday when he will return to his place of business. He reports things very dry and business dull. Wildey Strahan has been having the chills and fever 1 for the past week.

Mr. Sweet and family, of Cherryyale, were visiting with his James Bell. Miss Mary Bell arrived home from Illinois last Saturday. C. L.

Banks took in the sights at Independence this week. Mr. Kingslev, of Rutland, spent last Thursday night in our vicinity. Miss Ollie E. Banks, of Merrillville, is visiting relatives here, and expects to remain as one of Montgomery county's teachers.

Mr. and Mrs. Isaiah Tuttle have returned from a three week's visit in Marion county. They went with a team and report a good time. Messrs.

Homer Overhiser, James Anderson, Perry Allen, and Misses Grace Pruitt and Ollie Banks expect to attend the teacher's institute at Independence next month. Mr. Evans, on the old John Clay farm, has put up the first wind mill in this community. This is a step which every farmer who owns much stock ought to take, and we think it is one many of them will take before another fall. The work on the D.

M. A. is progressing finely through our township, the grading being ready for the ties in many places. We understand they intend to have the cars running to Tyro next month. Our young people had quite a pleas ant time at J.

W. Jones' one evening last week. They concluded to surprise Miss Ollie, so she was invited over to Mr. Ely Tuttle's, and returned about ten p.m. to find the house and yard filled with young folks from all over the neighborhood.

After spending the remainder of the evening in playing the usual games and talking, thev dispersed to their homes, satisued 'but sleepy. JAYHAWK. Notice. I will be in Independence Saturday afternoon, and those having clothing which they want cleaned or dyed will please leave orders at this office. Mus.

M. E. GARR. Is It Right? In speaking of the suspension of the Daily News, the Tribune says: "There never was an excuse for the birth of a third weekly or a second daily in Independence, Had the advertising and job work patronage which has been extended to those failures been given to the established papers it would have benefitted them, and the public, but as it is, what was paid them did no one any good. We hope our business men will hereafter stand by the friends they have, instead of squandering money on newspaper and job office ventures which can give them no benetit." We wish to say to the people that we will, next week, begin the publication from this office of the MONTGOMERY COUNTY ARGUS, and while we are averse to newspaper quarrels generally, we feel it our duty to say a few words in vindication of our rights as citizens and business men of Independence.

We have come here to locate permanently, providing we can secure business enough to sustain us in our endeavors in the newspaper direction. We expect to do a legitimate business. pay our taxes the same as other citizens, do all we can to promote the best interests of Independence and Montgomery county, and ask in return only a share of the public favors. So far as the Tribunes being entitled to all the patronage is concerned, they are no more entitled to it than any one merchant of any kind, even though it be the oldest established paper. It would be just as consistent for our dry goods dealers, grocers and other merehants to say that no one should attempt to carry on a business in our city.

As to giving the people the worth of their money, we are willing to let our work speak for itself. We can and will do as good work, both in the newspaper and jobbing department, as any establishment of the kind in pendence, and will guarantee all who patronize us complete satisfaction in every respect.

There will be a Sunday school picnic held in a grove near the Foster school house, (one and a half miles east of Parker,) on Sunday, 81st inst.

Invitations have been given to twelve or thirteen adjacent schools and arrangements made for a warm candy treat for all the little folks. Plenty of ice cream, lemonade, will be kept on the grounds, being careful that the refreshments shall be only such as are suitable for such occasions. Good order will be preserved, able speakers will address the assembly briefly but pertinently. There will be good vocal and instrumental music, and the other amusements common on such occasions will not be wanting with us. A cordial invitation is extended to everybody to attend our entertainment, trust that all may be well pleased during the day, and that it may be remembered as a perfect success, by young and old, and may add to the interest of ours, as well as neighboring Sunday schools.

CHARLES DAVIS. Men's Clothes Cleaned and dyed at East Side Laundry, Cherryvale. The News' Obituary. Bro. Sickles devotes about one-third of a column of his valuable space to the production of an obituary on the death, as he terms it, of the Daily News.

The plot, so to speak, of the article is, we are sorry to say, not original, as we have seen it used very frequently on similar occasions. Still it shows that the dear, kind-hearted old patriarch 18 not so altogether depraved as some of his vile enemies would have us believe, for there is a certain pathetic sentiment expressed in the article that could only have come from a heart overburdened with sympathy and consolation. No doubt the sorrowing parents are deeply grateful to the grand old man for his kind expressions of sympathy for them, in their dire affliction, and we believe that our able evening contemporary pursued the proper course in fixing up that kind of an obituary notice. We are of the opinion though that it would have been more in keeping with the eternal fitness of things if the bright and newsy little sheet had turned its column rules and inverted its type in evidence of its grief at the demise of its beloved sister. An obituary, too, is always regulated in regard to the standing of the deceased in this world.

From the length of the one on the Daily News that paper must have stood very high in the community, and it must have hurt Bro. Sickels a great deal, to gee the sufferings so graphically displayed in his peerless In Memoriam." Well, Bro. Sickles, look out; you are breathing the same air. You are just a little older, but not yet quite old enough to stand alone or to scratch for yourself, and your nourishment comes from the same source as that of the News did. Look out that you filter everything well before you consume it, or else one fine summer morning some live sheet will write up an obituary for you, which will say that the Reporter died a painless death, but that in its death no loving hands cared for it and eased its dying moments, but that it shuffled off this mortal coil, and will remain unwept, unhonored and unsung.

From Alluwe. Wesley Edwards, of whose sickness I spoke in my last communication, died last Tuesday, and funeral services were conducted by the writer on Wednesday afternoon. He leaves behind three motherless boys. Who will take care of them? The Delaware Sunday School picnic was held yesterday in a beautiful grove on Lightning Creek. The attendance was fair and music and literary exercises very good.

A very sumptuous dinner was served on tables fifty feet in length, and many "baskets of fragments" were taken up after the multitude had been filled. In the afternoon among others, an address was delivered by Rev. A. J. Moore, of Independence.

The maple trees in the neighborhood have escaped the ravages of the maple worms, but a few days ago a species of bug, new to me and to all with whom I have conversed, made its debut in an army to be numbered by thousands. This little bug is of the beetle family, about three-sixteenths of an inch in length, color pale brown, of a glistening and semi-transparent appearance, and emitting, when mashed, a peculiar and disagreable odor, which cannot be very well described. I have been watching these little creatures with considerable interest and some degree of solicitude as to where they would make their attack, as they gather towards evening on the trunks of the the trees in vast numbers, especially near the ground. Even the turkeys discern in them the character of strangers, and stretching out their necks utter their peculiar note of warning such as they make at sight of a snake. This morning it transpires that they are attacking the leaves of both the maple and apple trees.

So far as observation has extended, other species of trees have escaped. They are quite light of wing and fly with the ease of the common house fly, so they readily reach the leaves of the tallest trees. They consume the pulp of the leaf leaving only the network of fibers and veins, giving the leaf the appearance of a spider web. This destruction and transformation is now going on very rapidly in Mr. Journeycake's yard, whence I write.
