Dave Burkhart, who is arranging to move from the Deckard farm, south of town, will store his household goods at his son-in-law Frank Deckards, until he prospects a little. Last weeks paper on the inside. Just as we got about all of the first page printed on last Friday the press broke down, and as it took several days to get a new wheel for it, we just let it go until today and print all four pages. Ceo. Gaither, who returned last week from a prospecting tour in Texas, says there is great prospects for a man there in some of the new towns, along a new railroad just recntly built through that state. Carpenters are in great demand at these places and the average wages is $3.50 per day. He states that he will move there next fall. Grandma Woodward Falls Down Stairs And Is Badly Hurt. Mrs. Susan Woodward, who lives with her daughter, Mrs. George Deckard, in trying to go down stairs unassisted, Tuesday evening, fell and broke her hip. Dr. Jackson was called and set the fracture but it will be a long time in healing, on account of her extreme age. Mrs. Woodward will be 91 years old in June, and it is a pathetic sight to see the good old woman as she would sit day by day, with no future hopes or ambitions in view, other than the changing of this world into another, and if justice is meeted out to her, for her good and kindly deeds done in this world, her crown will be a bright one in the next. A Sad Catastrophe. Sunday was Dr. Kentling's unlucky day. As he was returning from seeing a patient, Sunday morning, he stopped in front of Mort Sciscoe's residence to let John Cutright get in the buggy, when Dave Corder came along driving a span of young mules, which he was just breaking in. He was driving in a pretty fast trot and could not turn them in time to prevent the wagon from striking the Dr.'s buggy and completely running over it, smashing it up so badly that he had to buy a new one. Mrs. Luther Smith, of Clear Creek, spent the day with relatives here, yesterday. J. L. Warring and Andy Stull, two of our leading merchants, went to Louisville, Wednesday to buy their new spring goods, "They will also probably inspect the theatres at that place to see if they are properly protected with fire escapes."
