Conroy P. 0,
Fred Salzman, brought to this
office Monday morning a sample
of wheat from his father's field,
that is the best that has been
seen up to this time. This wheat

F. G. Smith and S. P.
son, two capitalists of Bethany,
Mo., were visitors in town over

Bailey, by name. The father of
the smitten lassie was very much
opposed to his daughter's choice
and remonstrated with her to no
avail, and on Monday when she
left home, as he supposed, to
see her lover in Beaver, he im-

Bailey on the street demanded
