WELLSTON NEWS HEWS,
Some of thi* business men along th i
south side of Main street have tiled an
injunction to prevent the council from
building brick sidewalks in front of
their buildings J. A. Lynch made
this office a pleasant call Monday.
He is making a .thorough canvass of
the 3rd district and will undoubtedly
be the winning candidate if thorough
campaigning backed by good all around
competency have anything to do with
#it Let us get a quarter dollar and
see if we can find on it thirteen stars,
thirteen letters in the scroll of the
eagle's beak, thirteen leaves on the
olive branch, thirteen arrows, and
thirteen letters in the word "quarter
ddllar." Is it not well to remember
these facts let it be as it may about
the unlucky thirteen!. ..The work
of tearing out the old sidewalks and
replacing them with brick, is moving
along rapidly. When all of these walks
are completed our little city will
have quite a different appearance.
This not only improves the appearance
of Main street but shows that the
business men can be energetic in ad-
vancing the interests of the town if
only aroused to these needs.

PRAGUE NEWS ITEMS.
Phil Grimm has purchased the A.
Froug lot just north of the Lincoln
county bank and the Herskowitz lot
adjoining it and will erect a stone
building with brick front, fifty by one
hundred feet. Mr. Grimm is thinking
quite strongly of adding the second
story and putting in a large hall above
but has not yet fully decided that mat-
ter. The building will be occupied by
the Wade Branch Hardware Co.
Work was begun on the foundation
Tuesday morning. John Davis is super-
intending the work of construction....
J. H. Whitten, deputy sheriff, re
turned home Saturday after a four-
hundred mile chase in the Indian ter-
ritory after a horse thief. He landed
his man however, and left him in jail
at South McAlister until he could get
requisition papers and bring hisprisoner

corner of this county and the thief's
name is W. H. Daily. Mr. Whitten

secured his papers from the governor,
and Tuesday evening left for McAlister '■
to bring over his man R. W. Ogg
was in town last Friday looking after i
is candidate for thft office of register
of deeds. Mr. Ogg is making many
friends in his canvass and if he does not |
succeed in getting the nomiation will I
make a strong showing in the primary. |
We believe Mr. .Ogg to be fully corn-j
petent to conduct the business of the
office of register should he reach it j
and we do not believe the republican |
party would sutler any because of |
