Baker who recently moved from Harrodsburg to Edinburg, was here on business for a few days last week. The doctor has the appearance of prosperity and if there is anything in energy and ambition together with the physicial ability to back it up, the doctor is a sure winner. A birthday party was given at the home of Chas. Pate last week, for their daughter Lillie, it being her 15 th anniversary, also for Lelia Zikes it being her 14th birthday.

Hugh Baker and family are visiting relatives here this week. The band at Oolitic is being reorganized. "A BOOMERANG." Another Case of Dog Eat Dog. To a bystander it is amusing to stand by and look on and see the city of Bloomington and the county of Monroe shake their fists at each other and one tell the other what it can do and what it cannot. That hitch-rack business, (is so stale we don't like to talk about)—the commissioners won out in the effort of the city to hold it up by injunction, but the notice to the city council to vacate has proven rather boomerang. The taxpayers wanted and needed the money they were paying for rent to apply on that fine, large, costly, edifice and quite a little murmur is leaking out where ever you go, but there is no one particularly to kick but themselves and glance over to the commissioners. Everybody wanted the rack and was tickled over the stand the commissioners took, but darn it, they Wanted that rent too. BIG DAY. Sunday was a red letter day for Harrodsburg it being the decoration exercises of the K. of P., Red Men and Modern Woodmen lodges and Old Soldiers. A procession, nearly a mile long, headed by the Smithville band, was composed of the lodge members and the largest crowd that ever graced the burg was there. Many compliments were made on the arrangement, management and decipline. Every thing moved like clock work. Rev. Trusty gave the address and the Harrodsburg orchestra made some excellent music at the grove. NOTICE—Anyone suffering from Cancer, and wanting to get well, address Lock Box 282, Edinburg, Indiana.
