Mrs. V. L. LeTulle returned from Rock Island week before last. Mrs. LeTulle accompanied her sister Miss Oma Bell home. All the Cana(n)ites  were extremely sorry to have Miss Bell leave, but the cloud was partly lifted for when Mrs. LeTulle returned she brought two other sisters with her, Misses Pauline and Essie Bell. They were accompanied by Messrs. Matow Bell and Sam Pascal. Boys don't you wish Mrs. LeTulle would have other sisters visit her?  "NO. 13"

Not a great deal has happened in our vicinity this week. We have had but a few visitors and everything is quiet generally.

Owing to the serious illness of Mrs. C. H. Williams, Mrs. H. W. Bowie and Miss E. A. Thompson left Friday to spend a few days with her.

Messrs. R. T. M. Chinn and John LeTulle were very much in evidence last week.

Mrs. G. C. Duncan and son, H. B. Duncan, are visiting relatives in Bowieville.

Crops are looking fine since the rain and the mosquitoes still reign supreme.
