The “Great Finder” was happy to restore to the rightful owners, last Saturday, the lost check found by young Billy Kellison, advertised in our last issue, and also a pocket book found by our foreman, Mr. Lindsay, after the paper was printed. But when people lose anything, nowadays, they rush right in here after it, and often get it before it is advertised.
There will be a mass convention of the Prohibition party on Monday, the 5th day of September, to commence with a basket picnic in Central Park.
County Attorney W.H. Carpenter returned last Saturday from Ohio, where he went to prosecute the most important case he ever had in court. And he won his suit. It was a case in the Supreme Court of Cupid. His bride is a Marion girl, whose loveliness of person and character have commanded for her the admiration of all our people—Miss Lulu Stone. She was for four years an employee of this office, and the Record is proud of her. Her talented young husband has worked his way, like Kansas, “through difficulties” to his present position among the legal stars of the county. The Record’s blessing upon the happy couple!
The tall stalks of broom corn which stand in the corner of our office were left here by Mr. John Powers, who has lots of it growing on their farms.
Capt. Lewis, our efficient Postmaster, will make the grand rounds again, next month, interviewing the Postmasters of the county and learning from them everything he can of interest to the service.
