RUSH TOWNSHIP



Ed. News: -- Having seen nothing from this township in your columns

recently, will endeavor to give you what items that have come under my

notice.



Charley TURNER has moved on Lost creek.



Jaby NORTON has built an addition to his house.



John HARRIS is doing some building this winter.



Jaby NORTON is feeding about forty head of hogs.



Miss Eva MULLEN is teaching in district 83, with good success.



Mr. BLAZIER, Frank BLAZIER's father, has moved to this part of the woods.



Rush township has lots of feed and a fair supply of corn. Wheat is

suffering from the long dry spell. Stock is looking well. The health of

the community is good. There is no sickness.



Look out! There will be a wedding near Webster before long, judging from

the way Eb acts.



Mr. LONG will move from Iowa in the spring to his farm on Lost creek, now

occupied by C. W. PHELPS.



A literary is held at the Bruton school house and those who attend seem

to be having a good time.



A few of Stockton's nimrods were out and spent a day hunting with the

boys. They say they bagged a nice lot of birds.



A. SCHNEIDER has gone to Doniphan county for a visit with his parents.

Abe is a good boy and we wish him a pleasant trip.



Charley DOUGHTY is rustling a bunch of cattle this winter. Well, Charley

is prepared for a hard winter, having lots of feed.



Two of our boys, Charley and Bob, or the Siamese twins, were out at the

wolf hunt near Stockton last week, but they are not braying much about

their success. Guess they had fisherman's luck.
