Hair will begin a protracted meeting at the M. E. church Sunday night. Dr. Kentling is making his rounds this week in a brand splinter new sleigh, and says he has the best outfit in the city. Walker Burkhart, southwest of town, Ieft Wednesday morning for Fort Worth Texas, he will spend the remainder of the winter in the south west. Matthew Butcher and wife and Joe Butcher aud wife, left Wednesday morning for a few days visit with relatives at Lawarenctville, Ill. We would tike to remind our correspondents to get their copy in by Wednesday morning so we will not be delayed in getting the paper out Friday morning. Don't forgot this. A Kentucky man, aged eighty-three, has just married his fifth bride. This incident leaves in doubt the age at which a man should be old enough to know better. Prospective Passing of The Rural Mail Carrier In the course of a few more years there will be no more rural mail man to bring your mail to you, and neither can you send by him for a "quarters'' worth of sugar and a plug of tobacco etc , but instead there will be a system installed that will work something like tne cash carrier system in the department stores. An old farmer near Arcola, Ill., has taken an idea from a corn planter and formed a company to make a test of his invention, and a 12 mile circuit has been installed near that place. A row of telephone poles is built along the route a cable is suspended on the poles and travels all the time. When it is time to send out mail, a little car is attached to the cable and catches a little sack hung up by the "old farmer" along the route and if there is any mail for him, throws out a sack fixed for a cert in station along the route. After it has been thoroughly tested a certain length of time, and it proves to do the work which it has been doing o k since its installation, the government is to take it up and adopt it all over the United states. Looks like such a system would be "rigged up" in all the cities, to deliver small packages from the stores or city mail deliveries. Irvin Fender, east of town, has been layed up with an attack of stomach trouble and rheumatism. Grinding Up Axes For Next Campaign A general roasting up of the "Monroe County Political Ring" was given in tije Indianapolis News last Saturday. The demand for the paper was so great that it was necessary to telegraph for 1000 additional copies, which were sold out Sunday morning. A general exposure of all the "mean things" the ring had done for 30 years past and up to the present time. It was enough to makeeven some of the dead turn over in their graves under such an attack upon their records. There is a war on between the "ring" and the"anti-ring" and there isn't going to be any "let up" until ring method corruptness is broken up. If there are any public good things to be had, pass them around so that one "bunch" of fellows may not everlasttngly enrich themselves at the expense of the whole people. If a new set of fellows, or a new ring can show a saving of public funds, try them once. Economy is what the tax paper is looking for. Frank Deckard and family have returned from a weeks visit with France Wooden and family, near Indianapolis. Mrs. John M. Grimes and little son, are here from Cassville, Mo., for an extended visit with Silas Grimes and family. Trains 11 and 12 will run through between Bloomington and Bedford on Saturday, January 16, on account of corner stone laying of new Post Office at Bedford by Masonic Grand Lodge of Indiana on that date. T. Thrasher, Agent, HERE BOYS Is a chance to earn a BASE BALL MASK FREE Any boy who will get us 6 one year subscribers, will be given this mask. Address The Pews, Smithville, Indiana Dwight Dill who is completing a law course in Indiana University, has been admitted to the Monroe County bar and will open up an office in Bloomington soon. Misses Gertrude Bouher and Cecil Carmichael, of Harrodsburg, and Ralph Taylor of Lyons, spent the day last Friday, with Mrs. John Tatum, north of town, Louis Litz, the well known former west of town, is recovering from an attack of rheumatism and stomach trouble. Snow, Snow the beautiful snow. Snow is alright for sleigh riding, (providing you have got the sleigh Snow is allrightfor "slidin" down,. hill with your best girl on a moon light night, but if you track in snow on your wifes new carpet, she will make it so hot for you that you will have to go out and sit down in the snow to cool off. What They All Say. James Harrell, who owns one of the best improved farms in this part of the country, and who tried to enjoy life in "single blessedness" but surrendered to "cupid" only a short time ago, and now works in "double harness" says— he is more anxious to get the Smithville News than any other paper, NOTICE TO DYSPEPTICS Try This Remedy Once. A leading local physician has "professionally" stated that "there is enough hearty laughs with each issue of the Smithville News to digest 21 ordinary meals," This prescription of course means a paid in advance subscription, as borowing the paper or your subscription not being paid would cause a reaction on the gastric juices of the stomach which would either cause an overflow or an insufficient amount of hydroclor-atic acid to properly digest the food, causing palpitation of the heart, blindness and if allowed to continue would eventually run into cancer of the s-tomach. So the News is so much cheaper than "Root Juice," "Peruna" or "Lydia Pinkliams Compound" we trust you will give it a trial anyway.
