A dwelling house occupied by Albert Sale was burned down in Marion Township last week. All the contents were lost. Origin of the fire not known.


The 80th anniversary of Mrs. Sally Dickenson's birthday was celebrated at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. Posey Parks, on Tuesday, by a large number of relatives and friends of the old lady.


HYMENEAL–L. A. Hampton and Miss Clara Yandell were united in the holy bonds of wedlock on January 17, 1886, at the residence of the groom's parents near Leon, Butler County, Kansas, Rev. Burris officiating.

Miss Yandell formerly resided at Huron in this county and last school year taught at Springville. Last summer she went to Kansas and has been engaged in teaching there since, but her charms have succumbed to the inevitable. "Toss," as she was familiarly addressed, was kind and generous in her nature, frank and sociable in her conversation, an earnest student and a lady esteemed by her classmates and all whom she met. Mr. H. is a relative of Hon. Wade Hampton of South Carolina and is a very intelligent young man and has good prospects for a very successful career. Our best wishes go with them.
