- School began last week in District No. 12. Miss Dougherty is again the instructor.
- The patrons of the Hollenbeck factory held a meeting Saturday night. R. J. Hollenbeck makes the cheese and furnishes it for $1.45. He is also secretary and salesman. The majority voted not to skim the cans this fall.

- Sanford Clark and wife, of Oneida, spent Sunday with his father and mother.

- The people in this vicinity are getting awakened over the enormity of the sheriff's bill. Thanks to THE UNION, which the majority of the citizens about here take. Either through the neglect to secure a supervisor's book or carelessness in looking it through, but few realize the actual facts in the case. But, thanks to a good, live newspaper, the people are becoming enlightened. The action to be brought against the sheriff is commended by all.
