That Auto Trip.
It seems evident that some people
are inclined to joke about serious mat-
ters as was evidenced by tho many
impertinent remarks which greeted
the cars or that aUtomobllo party
which returned from Gngc Sunday.
Really wo believe Bomo people would
laugh If they wero to ho hung. What
If tho party did get hung up in a mud
hole about six miles out of town for an
hour or such a mattor? It only con-
vinces the writer that those men from
Beaver are "pushers" and no mistake.
If anybody doubts for a minute Unit
that crowd lacks "nerve" they should
hiwo been in sight when that machine
struck a mud hole and "circled to tho
right" without any music. Oh tho
oxperienco was great all right but wo
havo an aversion to being called a
"stick in the mud." But laying all
jokes asido tho trip from Beaver to
Gago was a most delightful ono by au-
tomobile and tho country onrouto is
some of tho best and most productive
to bo found in the county. Tho
farmers all bIiow signs of thrift and in
dustry and good buildings and fonccs
are going up and nice groves and or-
chards aro starting up splendidly on
every hand. Tho farmers aro raising
hogs horses and cattle in many in-
stances as well as crops which is sure
to be a paying proposition to them.
Another good Idea too Is that tho
crop is not confined to one varieiy but
is being diversified. Most of tho
farmers had some wheat and consid-
ering the season it is turning out a
fairyiold. Other crops look rank and
green and are making a fast growth.
This senson will not bo a failure by
any means and tho harvest this fall
will bo a surprise in many respects
Gago and Sliattuck arc both good
growing towns and are nloing u good
business. Tho people ore wide-awake
and energetic and if those towns don't
continue to grow we miss our guess.
Tho trip overland was a delightful
ono and without many of the unpleas-
ant features so often experienced on
such trips. Everything went fine and
wo made good time going over. A
Httlo accident caused a bursted tiro
about 25 miles this side of Gaged but
"we got there just tho same."
At Gago wo found the peoplo work-
ing with a will on tlte railroad propo
sition and arrangqments were made to
havo the survey start the latter part of
this week or the first of next.
Had it not been for the muddy roads
we encountered about six miles out of
Beaver tho return trip would have
been without incident. Otherwise tho
roads wero fino and wo sailed along at
a llvelv rato. Under favorablo condi
tions tho trip could bo made easily in
six hours and that beats eighteen
hours by team a long ways.
Dick Boren of Madison was a
ver caller Monday. Mr. Boron render-
ed valuable assistance in pulling Judge
Loofbourrow's auto out of a mud hole
south of town Sunday.

old Beaver county man and still owns

ness at Gogo.
Dora Judd Passes Away.
Our community has again been call-
ed upon to bow in submission to the
visit of tho Grim Reaper and see tho
hearts and homo of J. O. Judd and
family of Six Milo in gloorn and de-
spair over tho lossof tho eleven-year-old
daughter Dora who succumbed
Friday of Inst- week being unable to
withstand tho sufferiuings of a severe
cuso of typhoid which had held her in
its clutches for two weeks.
Owing to the character of the dis-
ease and tho sad circumstance of othor
members of the family being quite low
with the same malady funeral services
wero conducted tho same day and in-
terment miido in tlte Beaver comotery.
Rev. Leonard dlrectod tho funeral
ceremony and spoke words of comfort
and hopo to tho sorrowing relatives.
The sympathies of tho entire commu-
nity aro extended to Mr and Mrs.
Judd and family in their deep sorrow
and misfortune and in this tho Heuaiu
most sincerely joins.

New Marriage Law.
Ono featuro of tho new marriage law
which is being generally overlooked is
the clause requiring miiilstcis to filo
copies of their ordination papers with

thorized to perforin a legal marrlago
ceremony. Not only is a marriage
performed by n minister who has not
complied with the statute illegal but
tho minister officiating in such ceremo-
ny Is subject to a fino.
We havo been Informed that no min-
ister in Uoavor county has complied
with tho law in this rcapeet and wo
therefore call attention to this feature
of tho law for their boncflt. It would
bo woll for all ministers who expect to
perfouu niarriage ceremonies to file
