Raymond Deckard is moving to Clear Creek, in the house south of Ed Martin. The Corydon Leader is spreading it on a little this week, by issuing a paper in two colors. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Bouher, of Clear Creek, visited Ed Bouher at Harrods-burg, Sunday. Miss Gertrude Wright has returned from Bedford, after a few days visit with friends. Mrs. Wm. Strain, of near Harrods-burg-, is visiting her sister, Mrs. Harriett Perry at Bethany, 111. Mrs. Dr. Luzadder and Mrs. Seiban-thal, were down from Bloomington, yesterday afternoon, to attend the W. C. T. U. meeting at the M. E. church. Recently we made an item complain-ing of the train service we are getting, and we are going too, for about a month at least, have all the trains we want. While they are going to put in the steel bridges on the new Ketcham Mill line, the Monon will put all trains this way. They will probably begin running this way the first of next week. Mr. S. D. Huffman has rented the room to be vacated by J. G. Fogle and will run a meat market. LOST—A little rubber tired go-cart wheel, between Sanders and Blooming ton. Finder will be rewarded, if re-turned to, or notify the News office, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Fraley returned to their home at Crawfordsville, last hight, after a pleasant yisit Gaither. Bennett, Wm. Mercer and Grimes families. Cecil Hawkins, Joe and Jimmy Butcher have taken a contract to build a mile of telephone line on the new pike running west, and to rebuild an old tumble down barn in the north part of town. A letter from W. W. Hall, Springfield. 111., an old Monroe county boy says: "Beg to acknowldge receipt of a copy of The Smithville News which I presume was sent by you. Your paper is all right and you can put me down as a 'regular.' Will be over in Indiana again in a few days when I will hand you the necessary/' We have been having some very peculiar rains of late, but none of them have struck this place yet. Sunday a very heavy rain fell at Heltonsville, but none fell as far west as-Monday they had a good rain at Clear Creek and Bloomington, but we got not a drop here. We guess none but; the just are getting any of the dampness the old man is passing around. Vitandonia Solomita, has opened up an Italian store at the Reed quarry. Mr. Solomita, is quite an up to date Italian; and can speak 7 different languages. There are about 300 Italians that work in the different quarries in this district, and they all depend on one or two of their number to transact their business with the English, as not more than one out of every ten of them can speak English. An injunction has been filed in U. S. circuit court restraining the Monon from issueing newspaper passes in exchange for advertising. The Monon was the only raod that had the nerve to ignore the freak legislation last fall, claiming it was taking too much of their personal liberties. The legislature is preventing them from rec -iving too much for passenger fare and is preventing them from giving any of it away. About 1450 dugs in this town ought to call on Joe Stull and get to "monkeying" around in his back yard, or nibble on the "pet calves" on the back of his hind legs, and they would sure get the right kind of medicine. Last Tuesday night 2 or 3 dogs got into a large bunch of turkeys at W. W. Rosses, and killed 4 nice ones, and badly crippled 10 others, If about 9 1/2 out of every 10 dogs was made into sausage meat, it would be a good thing. CUB TEACHERS For Clear-Greek Township Geo.W.

Watson and other prominent speakers will be there. Esq. Davenport and son Byron, are painting the A. F. Bennett house, occupied by Raymond Sylvester. Did you go to the show Wednesday? We guess you did. From the looks of the crowd everybody was there. Every member of the W. C. T. U. is requested to meet at the Christain church, after Sunday school next Sunday. Agent Thrasher sold 17 tickets to Bedford this morning, and as many more got on the train without purchasing tickets... * Hensley, of Salt Creek township, ? her son Geo. Hensley, who ? the Geo. Thrasher ?, west of town. Justice Davenport is spreading it on ? week, in laying a fine stone walk along the front of his and Wes Burris property on Main street. Sam and A. A. Burris are also assisting. John C. Dolan, democratic candidate for treasurer and Capt. J. N. Alexander of Bloomington, were here to-day look-ing after the political situation. They also called at the News Office and donated the necessary ''Spizerii ktum" for a years subscription. Get Ready for the State Fair. Next week is the State Fair and the rush begins. It is said the fair will be larger and better this year than ever, more exhibits better racing better accommodations for the masses. The following went to Bedford this morning to see the Miller Bros. Wild West show, and maybe some of them will see the temperance laws are being enforced in that town. John Wampler and daughter, Sam Burris wife and children, Mrs. Ab Humphery, J. G. Fog|e, Claud Day, John Tanksley, Ed Sylvester and wife, Chas. Cline and wife Kir.and Mrs. Tanksley. The pocket book lost by Mrs. Cull Clark last Friday, was found north of the railroad switch at Sanders, by Tol-bert Young's little girl, who carried it home to her parents, who seen in this paper that it was the property of Mr. Clark. When found by the the little girl there was the check for $385 and a note but no money. The original finder had taken the money $32 and as the cheeks and the note would lead to his detection, threw the balance away. Mrs. Clark in going to make a visit to her daughter dropped it along the road and some one in passing is to the good $32. This incident will have a tendency to make matters still worse about letting your wife carry the pocket book, but in the case of the writer, there is never enough ia it for her to want to carry it. McMillen's Mills Hot Air Correspondent. The mill will be shut down labor day. Mr. Carl Allen is suffering an attack of lumbago and is unable to work? Mrs. C. O. Allen and son have returned from a tour of the eastern part of the U. S. Mr. G. Smiley reports frost on the night of the 17th. We presume ('paw-paws" will be ripe in a day or so. The large ferocious bull dog employed as watchman at the mill is suffering with dyspepsy. The symptoms resemble sea-sickness. A large crowd from here attended the Wild West Show in a body, and pronounced one of the features in the side show far superior to the main show, By unanimous vote of the entire crew at the mill,it was decided to buy the editor of the News' a dictionary, so that it would be possible to spell a combination of languages and words by phone. The political situation is beginning to look serious at the mill, no one is for Bryan, Taft on the prohibition party. There is some talk of nominating a independent ticket. The platform will be published in the News at an early date. While waiting for the train to sidetrack, Red, a fine milk cow belonging to Mrs. C. O. Allen, was struck in the rear by the engine and without a bellow, was consigned to an untimely end, in a 6x4x2 grave beside the track. No more snakes have showed up around the mill. We understand the flock of snakes seen the other day was a "hallucination" and that the man now denies any knowledge of seeing them. Brand used unknown. The telephone runs now-a-days as if Carter had been along the whole route with a broom and a pail of soft soap, McMillens have had one good talk with Johnson Stone Co., so they ha\e no kick comin'. Our hot-air machine has slipped a cog and we are unable to proceed. Thos. J. Sare has completed organizing a 4'30 cent Bryan club" and for-wared $35 AO to help elect that famous gentleman. 1'A 30 cent Bryan club" oreginated its name out of a remark made by some republican in New York, that "they couldn't make up 30 cents for Bryan," the newspapers got to making so much comment on it, some of the wise democrats have been making quite a great deal of capital out of it. Nothing Doing at Chapel Hill. A far as the band boys are concerned. Quite a litte fake advertising at the expense of the Smithville band has been worked on the boys by the Chapel Hill management. Quite a lot of advertising had been made, leaving the impression that the Smithville band would be part of the entertainment, but no negotations were made with the band to whether they would come or not. It pays though to advertise either honorably or dishonorably. The class of merchandise we sell is the force which has made our store successful-The GOODS, the VALUES--are working wonders for our success. THEY ARE RIGHT. If your Clothing and shoes are giving complete satisfaction this argument is not of interest. If not—think it over. We are looking for such people always. When you come to Bloomington come and see us, let us show you our goods,— you'll be thoroughly welcome though you may have no idea of buying our goods.
