ELMER DAVIS and wife, of Otter Creek Township had more than their share of trouble last week. Their infant daughter died Thursday and was buried on Friday. Two days later their house caught on fire but fortunately MR. DAVIS happened to be out in the yard and noticed it. He gave the alarm over the telephone and soon had enough help to get the fire put out, but not until it had damaged the house considerably.

MISS MAGGIE MCKINZEY of Cleveland, 14 years of age, is taking a teacher's course in the Ottumwa High School. This little lady has earned the money to pay her schooling by her own labor, and so much ambition surely indicates a bright future for her.

CAMPBELL next Sunday at 12 p.m. and the remains will be interred in the family burial grounds at Fry Hill Cemetery.
