Zadock Miller was so unfortunate as to have the small finger of his left hand served [severed] at the hand.  The finger will probably grow fast but will only be a show finger as there will be no joint to it.

Mr. A.H. Kohr, secretary of the People's Mutual Benefit Association, at Westerville, O., spent last  Monday and Tuesday in this place.  He paid Mrs. Thomas E. Hale $1,000 in consequence of the death of her husband, who carried a policy for that amount.

The annual commencement of our public schools took place in the Baptist Church at this place on last Thursday night.  The graduating class consisted of Harry Brewer, Clayton Nordyke, Nellie Conard, Marley Rayburn, and Ella Blackburn.  Our schools have been making exhibits of their progress before the public for two weeks one room each day.  Last Friday was the closing day, and a large audience was present to witness the exercise.  Our school has never given such universal satisfaction as during the past winter, although hindered for several weeks by the mumps and measles.  The same corps of teachers is employed for the next term except Mrs. L.A. Henry and Miss Emma Wright, who retire voluntarily.
