The show a good one.
Last Monday night the citizens
of Manchester were given an
opportunity which only comes once
in a great while. We realize that
Manchester is not what could be
called a city, and that on account
of this fact we must be passed lip
by most of the big tent shows.,
But on Monday evening of this
week we enjoyed a real treat. The
Essie & Snyder Dog and Pony
shows gave an exhibition in the
south part of town, which was wit-
nessed by a large and enthusiastic
crowd, of perhaps twenty-five.
It is true that some of the trained
animals forgot their early training,
but what of that? The only pony
disgraced himself early in the game
by breaking through the ropes; one
of the ring men tried to head him
off and got tangled in the ropes,
pulling off some acrobatic stunts
which had not been billed. The
pony was recaptured and the per-
formance went on. The dogs were
well trained, and performed in fine
But the most pleasing feature
was the music; this was strictly
first class, and was highly appre-
ciated by a critical audience.
Withal the show was all right,
and will no doubt feel encouraged
to put on a return engagement in
the near future.
Note. We have often heard
that it pays to be charitable. We
have done our best.

—In retiring from tne active mana-
gement of the Journal, Mr. Simmons
is the last of the early settlers to quit.
He was among the first to reach the
townslte, and immediately opened up
the Journal office. For seventeen
years, through thick and thin, he has
hammered away, sometimes right,
sometimes, perhaps, wrong, but
always an deck, always striving in
his own way for the upbuilding of
Manchester and vicinity, In stepping
into his shoes we do do not fail to
notice that they are a little too large
for us, but our aim is to grow into
them. In the meantime Mr. Sim-
mons goes about the streets witli a

for the approaching harvest. The
farmers are very busy at present,

furnishing this office with a weekly
letter from their locality. We are
very desirous of getting news from the
country, and our best means of doing
it is through resident correspondents.
—The mill here looks funny with-
out its smoke stack. The enterpris-
ing proprietors have taken out their
steam engine and are having a big
solar oil engine installed. The new
engine will probably be in and ready
for duty early next month.

—J. B. Worrell, the Pond Creek
absconder who has been in hiding for
the last five years, has been heard
from at Mexico City, Old Mexico.
Worrell at one time was quite s
prominent man at Pond Creek and
made money, but fast living got the
better of him, He was the guardian
of a couple of small orphan children
there who were heir to about 14,000,
and this Mr. Worrell squandered and
left the children destitute. When
cited to appear in the probate court
by Judge Glen to make the account oi
his stewardship, he saw that he was
up against it and fled, leaving his
wife in destitute circumstances also.
He was bonded In a bonding company
for the benefit of the orphan children,
and after his departure F. J. Gentry
was appointed as guardian for the
children and at once commenced
action against the bonding company
to recover on the bond in their be-
half, and according to the Pond Creek
Vidette a compromise of the case
was made a short time ago and Mr
Gentry got 12,000 from the company
for the benefit of the orphans
Beoentiy Worrell wrote a letter to a
man in Pond Creek, stating that he
was ill and in destitute circumstances
at Mexico City, and that if he had
any friends in Pond Creek who would
oome to his aid he would be only too
glad to have them do so.
This Is the first intimation that has
ever been had of his whereabouts
since he skipped out.
All parties knowing themselves in-
debted to the Rock Island Lumber &
I Coal Company, will please call and
settle account at an early date
