(From Green Forest Tribune)

        Mrs. James Keithley is reported somewhat improved. She has been very sick of fever for nearly a month.

        Eld. R. A. Martin was stricken by a light attack of paralysis on last Saturday, since which time he has been kept indoors.

        Wm. Miller and wife of Cisco left Sunday for North Missouri in response to a telegram announcing the serious illness of Mrs. Miller's brother.

        Will Coxsey has accepted a position in the Bank of Green Forest and will not return to St. Louis. Will has developed into a fine business young man and his services are much in demand.

        J. B. Reeves is badly knocked out this week on account of a fall he received from a shed in his lumber yard Saturday afternoon. He suffered no broken bones but is almost paralyzed by soreness. He is in a rather critical condition.

        After an illness of several years caused by a cancer on his face, Jno. Cody, one of Long Creek township's good citizens passed away at his home in Denver on last Saturday night. Mr. Cody was 63 years old. He leaves a wife and eight children.

        Ben Harbert, an old Green Forest boy, and wife of Weston, Colo., arrived here Monday for a visit with relatives. Ben is a prosperous Colorado rancher. This is his first visit to his old home in 12 years. He says Green Forest has entirely outgrown his knowledge.

        Friends here were interested to learn of the marriage at Harrison Wednesday of A. B. Andrews and Miss Edith Marrs, both of that city. Mr. Andrews is Harrison's effici- ent postmaster and is well known in Green Forest. The bride is the accomplished daughter of J. J. Marrs of Harrison and a sister of Mrs. A. B. Wilson of Green Forest.

        Farmers are justly indignant because of the liberty taken by hunters, who not only shoot birds but endanger the safety of stock and even humans. Most farmers do not want the birds killed and no one wants to take chances on being shot up. Hunters should use much caution and not go on any man's farm without permission.

        John Orrell and Miss Minnie Galloway were quietly married at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Galloway, Wednesday, Eld. R. A. Martin officiating. The contracting parties are among our most highly respected young people and have the hearty benedictions of a host of friends.

        Married: On last Sunday, Dec. 27, Miss Telia Ruble of Green Forest to Mr. Waldo Davis of Bellefonte, the ceremony taking place at the home of the officiating minister, Rev. Deese, pastor of the Southern Methodist church at Bellefonte. The bride is the daughter of Rev. J. H. Ruble of Green Forest, and the groom is a son of Frank Davis a prominent business man of Bellefonte. The newly-weds will make their home at Powell, Marion county.

        On their way to Green Forest Saturday night after a casket for the remains of John Cody, the team which Lee Cody and Will Meyers were driving became frightened out near Geo. Galloway's place and ran away throwing the occupants out of the wagon, the vehicle passing over Mr. Myer's body inflicting rather severe injuries. The team ran on with the wagon to town and after circling around two or three blocks finally ran over the public well in front of the bank and wrecked the curbing. Considerable damage was done to the wagon.
