Mr. Sage's son, who died last week, was taken to Northfield for burial. Héctor Drake has just moved into Mrs. Sti eeter's house on the Piains. Wm. Blaess was married to a Miss Diuble last week and commenced house keeping at once. They will live on the old homestead. Here is hoping that they never will regret it. Ilauser and O'Hara have commenced buying wool, and they have taken in several very line clips. Prices are about the same as last year and the farmers are kicking as usual. The McKinley duty on wool does not enhance the price there of to any extent, but of course this idea is "heresy."
