Happenings in the Busy Castro
County Seat Briefly Told.
EDITED BY MISS HESTER BELL
A very enjoyable "singing" was
held at Mr. and Mrs. Gilbreath's
home last Sunday night.
"Uncle Ben" Turner has just
finished his new wind-mill and is
very proud of it. No wonder !
It is reported that a wedding will
take place among our young Dim-
mitt friends soon. Who can it be?
Misses Kate Harney and Ada
Sweazea were visiting in town
last Friday. Mr. John McCormick
of Kansas City, who is visiting his
father, accompanied them.
The Dimmitt high school is pre-
paring a very interesting entertain-
ment for its close. The pupils are
very enthusiastic and we trust they
will have great success.
We all wonder why our Metho-
dist minister wasn't here on the 1st
Sunday. Brother Bennett, we dis-
like being disappointed down here,
especially on "preaching days."
Mr. J. S. Copes and sons have
' just completed £heir new residence
east of town. We are glad to have
them with us and hope they will
make Castro county their future
Miss Bessie and Mr. Chas. Davis
entertained the Dimmitt young
people at their house north of town
last Friday evening. Refreshments
were served at eleven, and it was
quite late ere the departures were
made. All report a fine time.
Our Castro county farmers have
commenced their plowing and we
notice that a great deal of new land
is being broken. Some day, we
prohesy, our county will be an en-
tire farming land and our stockmen
will go elsewhere for their interests.

Ex-President Harrison Dead.
Gen. Benjamin Harrison, ex-presi-
dent of the United States, died at
4 :45 p. m. Wednesday, at his home
at Indianapolis, Ind. His last
thoughts were for the Boers, and he
spoke with pity of the struggling
republic and of cruel and unwar-
ranted war waged against them.
The country thus loses a brave sold-

IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY MEET.
An Interesting Session Though the
Attendance was Small.
Last Tuesday afternoon was the
date of the regular meeting of the
Hereford Sanitary and Improvement
Society, but most of the members
were absent, either through forget-
fulness or unwillingness to brave the
inclement weather. Of course
many of its members are situated in
business so that it is absolutely im-
possible for them to attend, and it
was for this class that the presi-
dent, L. Gough, suggested that the
hour of meeting be changed to 8 p.
m. It was suggested by some of
the members that that would be an
untimely date on account of the
lodge meetings and after discussion
an amendment to the constitution
and by-laws was read, and which
will probably be adopted at the
next meeting, naming the second
Monday evening of each month at
8 p. m. as the date and hour of
