CORRESPONDENCE

LAWN RIDGE ILLINOIS

Our school directors are having a hard time of it this fall. As stated last week, they had engaged N. E. Anderson, but he gave them the slip, by securing another school, at higher wages, and then coolly informed them that he was not coming to time. They are inclined to believe that he is somewhat lacking in the principle commonly called honesty. They are equal to the emergency, however, and have already secured another teacher, a Mr. A. J. Bookmeyer, formerly of Fayette, Ohio. The term is to be five months, and will begin on the 22d inst. We would respectfully warn the directors of the fact that the school-house cistern is in a very bad condition, and is too dangerous for children to play around, unless repaired.

The masons have finished the walls and foundations for the Methodist parsonage, and as the carpenters have everything done as far as it can be done, it will now be rapidly pushed forward to completion. It is to be raised to-day. (Wednesday).

Calvin Stowell has purchased the Percy property of Robert Turnbull and will move thereon. In exchange, Mr. Turnbull takes Stowell's farm in LaPrairie, which joins his own. We have failed to learn the terms of exchange. It is rumored that Stowell will also purchase the George Will farm; but at present writing, the trade is not complete. We wonder if all the old neighbors are going to leave?

Phillips & McConn are putting a new roof on Mrs. Crist's house while she is absent in Iowa.

John Roll? is going to Iowa next week to visit his sister, Mrs. Vincent.

Today (Wednesday) Green Hamilton's straw-stack caught fire from the engine while threshing, and was consumed. It took some lively work to save the separator from catching fire also. Two stacks of grain left unthrashed were saved.

Frank Wilder has opened a candy and peanut stand in the Zine building, where he proposes to do a little better by you than any one else will.

The memories and associations connected with the place cause some people to look upon him with grave suspicion, but Frank says "Watch me and see".

The decision rendered in the liquor case brought here from Chillicothe does not give very general satisfaction.

Miss Hattie Carnell has returned from Princeton, where she has been visiting for some time.

The LaPrairie and Lawn Ridge Sunday schools will hold a picnic at Root's Grove on next Saturday.

Jumbo and Barnum is the watchword today.
