Last Wednesday morning the state's attorney and sheriff and a stenographer came over from Wessington Springs and rounded up about a dozen witnesses in regard to the booze proposition in our town, the result being that the two druggists here were placed under bonds to appear before Justice Cook Monday the 26th to answer to the charge of selling intoxicating liquor.

Mrs. Ed Allen returned from the hospital at Sioux City Thursday evening. She is reported as getting along fine after her operation.

Ed Vanvories, living 1 1/3 miles south of town, lost a large stack of hay by fire last Monday, the fire had gotten away from a pile of rubbish that was being burned at the house. Mr. Vanvories and his hired man, Orvan Eaton, were working in the field near by, and seeing the fire had made its way into the meadow, started to head it off but before they could reach there it had caught in the stack. The hired man had a very narrow escape from what might have been a serious accident. While hurrying to the fire his team became excited, started up on a trot and the disc to which they were hitched struck a large rock, throwing him off in front of the machine which passed over both his legs and almost to his body, but as the ground was very soft and the disc somewhat dull he got out with a few slight cuts which are getting along nicely.
