CLE-ELUM ITEMS - Jo Jo

Real estate has been changing hands quite lively the past few days. Mr. HENDERSON, from somewhere, is now day operator here, Vice V. BARKER resigned. We welcome
you, fatty. Thos. JOHNSON's mill has been shut down for the past ten days, waiting for some necessary
repairing to be done to the machinery. Messrs. CASH, BRENAN and THOMAS have bought out W. F. ZEEK's livery barn and blacksmith shop.
Business will be continued as before, under the above management. Cle-elum has been socially convulsed this past week. First and foremost a young married lady
eloped with her uncle, and the couple are now being pursued by the irate husband with a double-
barrelled shotgun. Wm. TILLMAN gave one of his popular dances last Saturday evening, which was well attended and
all report an enjoyable time except the boys that got left. We were also thrown into a high state of excitement Tuesday evening by there being a wedding
reported to have taken place. Investigation proved such to be the case -- the first we believe
in the history of the city. The usual chavivari occurred, and an unusual amount of the ardent
drank to the health of the beautiful bride, of which it is needless to add we drank our full
quotas.
