Births, deaths and marriages are always items of interest to some people, at least.

The barn has not been occupied but very little of the time since George became the owner and he thought that he could use it to better advantage.
What came near being a very serious affair occurred at the home of F.T. Graves Tuesday night. While the family were all around the hanging lamp reading, some one thought to pull the lamp down a little and the hook came out of the ceiling and the lamp came down with a crash and broke all to pieces on the center table under it the oil at once caught fire and soon the table and all on it was in a fierce blaze as well as a large Morris chair which was near. Some water was thrown on but it did no good. Then quilts from the bed were thought of and the fire was smothered enough to carry the table out doors and the chair as well. No great harm was done and no one hurt except a few bruises and burns. Arthur was afire on his shoulder but Will Morgan threw water on him. All were frightened but were glad it was no worse.
Mrs. Thomte of Worthington came down on Wednesday afternoon and attended the meeting of the Ladies Aid society at the home of Mrs. Bird that afternoon.
