Farmers appear to be satisfied, at any rate, there is no grumbling about dry weather.
This fine weather causes masons and brick layers to smile, as well as all classes of house builders.
Mr. Frank HOFFMANN has sold his property to Mr. Fred. ASCHE of this city. Frank intends to leave this city next month.
The Grafton Rifle Club dance last Sunday evening was a grand success, a large crowd being in attendance.
Henry STEIN, of Brown Deer, will also raffle a fat heifer weighing 1200 pounds in connection with his shooting tournament for fowl next Sunday, Nov. 11th.
A number of our citizens attended the republican mass meeting at Thiensville last Saturday evening. Speeches were held by Paul BECHTNER in English and German.

Last summer, Ed. LYONS' team ran away with his Esterly binder while in the field on his farm in town Cedarburg. The binder was badly demolished and he brought it to J. LUEDTKE & Son of this city for repairs. It is now as good as new and shows that the work was done by skillful mechanics.
The many friends and relations of the John SMITH family, formerly of the town of Cedarburg who moved to Nebraska some years ago and where the head of the family has since died, will be pained to learn that a daughter, Miss Lizzie E. SMITH, died on the 2d of November inst. at Everett, Dodge county, Nebraska. She was an estimable young lady and highly respected by all who knew her.
Many a good citizen went home disgusted on election day, men that have been voting for the last 20 years, because there were little irregularities in or about their papers, whereas a few days ago, they might have taken any necessary step to enable them to vote legally. Get your papers at the earliest opportunity, for you seen costumes change with men.
Several candidates for the county offices have given us a call.
Our old friend, Mr. FLEISCHMAN, has gone to Milwaukee where he will be employed as book-keeper at the Northwestern Worsted Mills.
Mr. Frank SMITH, formerly depot agent, has rented his house and expects to leave for Milwaukee soon.
The dance given by the 'Grafton Rifles" was fairly attended and everything passed off smoothly; the Cedarburg band, as usual, gave themselves good credit.
There is a bright future for the town of Belgium. The usual three votes we have received at elections from "the time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary" have increased to sixty-nine. Three cheers for the immortal 69. Two years hence when we shall probably be a candidate for the Senate, we shall sweep the town. They will have found out by that time that we feel as friendly to them as anybody else in the county.
The Port Washington prophet who predicted that we would be "snowed under so that we would have to make an affidavit of having been a candidate," is requested to call at the office of the NEWS to get that affidavit for which we will not charge the usual fee of 25 cents. The wish was without doubt the father of the thought. A certain clique in that city dared not vote against BRICKNER, so we were made the scapegoat, through whose influence he was nominated at Sheboygan over HUDD.
When closely pressed and defeat was staring us in the face, we, like S. M. BOOTH of old racing on horseback through the streets of Milwaukee crying "freemen to the rescue" to take a runaway negro from the U. S. Marshal, made the same appeal in this county and not in vain as the returns will show. "The colored troops fought nobly."

Some people here like to know who gave the first information to that paper.
We were at home the whole day, only stepping out once to deposit our vote. As the polls were held next to our office, all we could see was that the prominent republicans worked much harder than the democrats, some two or three of the former being constantly in attendance. Otherwise, we observed nothing unusual except the slim attendance of our democratic friends. We did hear of some complaints of the manner in which the inspectors received the votes, but no communication or complaint was sent to us for publication from a responsible source, otherwise it would have received the proper attention.

A Man Overboard - A couple days ago, there was a rumor of a man being lost, after going to work in the morning about a mile from the village. In the evening, the man did not return to his boarding house to supper, so it was suggested something must have happened to him.
A young man going toward home saw some strange body lying near the road, and the night being dark, commenced throwing stones at the object, but without effect. The young man being frightened, called the next neighbor for help, who took a lantern and both men proceeded to the place of action. To their surprise, they found the lost man unconscious. After shaking and rubbing him, he came to his senses and stated that he must have been drugged by somebody. The reader might think the man got drunk, but that was not the case. He never gets drunk, he never tastes a drop!! The young man escorted the lost man to his boarding place, and the joy was great at the house to see him sound at home again.
A widower, living in the vicinity of Saukville made up his mind to get married again. He spoke to an acquaintance about it.

The widower responded to the call and on his arrival, was confronted with a woman who was (unreadable section) but she said her trunk was being held by a friend who had loaned her a small sum of money.
