now living in their own house on

the Smith property.
Sidewalks in different portions
of this part of town are being
torn up. As to whether new
walks will be put down, or the
people compelled to walk in the
mud remains"to'jbe seen. Walk-
ing on the ground however, is
preferable to running a risk of
breaking a limb on the dilapidat-
ed sidewalks that have disgraced
this portion oHowu for the past

corner of Fifth and Noble, was
offered $2,000 for his property.
It was wanted for a lumberyard.
He refused the offer, which goes
to show that property in West
Guthrie is growing in value al-
most as rapidly as in other por-
tions of the city.
Dr. Sargent's residence proper-
ty on West Cleveland looks very
neat after being painted white

Winter and Spring.
Through the marriage of a Mr.
Ogle, aged 80 years, to a young
lady of 17 summers, is but the
joining together of hands and
hearts of Winter and Spring.
Both parties are residents of
Woodland township. It was a
love match, where age took beau-
ty. Neighbors say the honey-
moon was started out on regula-
tion time, and the World trusts
that love will always reign su-
preme in the home where dwell-
eth winter and spring the year
sick, but is now on the road to
recovery. Axtel was 25 years of
age and came here sixteen months
ago from Denver, locating on a
good farm, which he purchased.

A Brutal Outrage.

ed with beating his wife with a
big six-shooter, Saturday night.
He was to have addressed a
Democratic meeting, but when lie
did not show up his friends went
to his house after him.
When they arrived they found
his wife on the floor in an uncon-
scious condition, her head badly
baten in a horrible manner.
Manning was hitching up his
horse and was preparing to leave
the city. He was horribly intox-
icated when arrested, and his
bond was placed at &S,000 by
Probate Judge Crum.
Mrs. Manning's head was terri-
bly beaten, and her back was a
mass of bruises. One of her
hands was co.vered with bruises,
where she had been struck by the

W. S. FINNEY.
Charles J. Axtel, a prominent
and prosperous young farmer liv-
ing west of Blackwell, died a few
days ago from the effects of eat-
ing too many Easter eggs. Sun-
day he had company for dinuer
and Win. Ferris and he engaged
in an egg-eating contest. Axtel
ate fourteen and Ferris twelve.
That night Axtel was taken se-
riously ill and gradually grew
worse until morning when lie
died. Mr. Ferris has been very
Tqe editor of the Willniar,
(Minn.,) Argus lives in a house
located between a Methodist
church and a dance hall. One
evening recently there was a
gathering in both places. It be-
ing too warm for comfort indoors,
the editor sat on the veranda anJ
took in the situation. This is
what he heard: "Let us pray-
all salute—we beseech thee to—
join hands and—draw near—cir-
cle to the left —listen to us—first
forward and back—as we—all
promenade—kneel before thee

On account of the disastrous
fire that visited Guthrie a week
ago last Sundav, by which the
linotype machine on which has
been set the real estate page of
the World, was destroyed, we are
compelled to tempoarily suspend
this important feature of our pa-
per. We feel assured that our
subscribers and friends will ap-
preciate our situation, and desire
to state to them that just as soon
as new machines can be installed
we will resume the publication of
all importand real estate sales,
mortgages, and so on, a distinct-
ive feature that has heretofore
made the World a recognized
authority among the real estate
dealers, investors and financiers
ol this rapidly growing city.
We beg your indulgence until
the ellects of this great disaster
can be remedied.

Here is a bit of philosophy
Irom the Perry Republican that
applies so well to Guthrie that it
is well worth reprinting: The
average Perry cur doesn't even
know enough to chase a rabbit.
He is not only perfectly useless,
but a nuisance as well. He puts
in his days sleeping and snarling
between naps at harmless people,
and his nights in serenading the
moon, or, if there be no moon,
barks at the darkness. Kill him,
and all his relatives. Kill him!
