Major E. OGDEN of Salina was in town yesterday. He was having quite a time with some of his country school boys. He bragged on Comrade John MONTGOMERY, said he was a very good boy, but said that Comrade Sam TURNER was a mischievous boy and needed correcting occasionally.

SALINA -- Our little village has the unique distinction of having just held a very successful Fourth of July celebration, after sixteen years of waiting.... The day proved a fine one and a large crowd gathered. The parade at 10 a.m. was very good. The float containing 46 school girls representing the states, with "Uncle Sam" and the Goddess of Liberty as the crowning features, would have been a credit to any city in the land.... The Salina quartet sang several songs, while Maj. OGDEN's Martial Band furnished the music for the entire day in a very creditable manner and won the praise of all present. The Salina Brass Band was unable to fill its numbers on the program because of the unavoidable absence of three members. The committee was disappointed when unable to furnish all the program called for, yet Maj. OGDEN's band did so well that very few people realized any other music had been on the program....

SALINA -- About two weeks ago Eber OGDEN went to Keokuk to have an operation on his eyes and at last reports the doctors fixed his eyes up so he can see. What a fine thing to think of a blind person getting his eye sight back.

Eber OGDEN, one of the best known old soldiers of Jefferson County, is one of the happiest men in Jefferson County just now owing to the fact that he has recovered his fife which has been lost for so long. This fife Mr. OGDEN carried with him through the Civil War and its notes many times cheered the hearts of the brave boys in blue as they were marching and fighting. Mr. OGDEN prized this fife very highly as it was presented to him by Dr. C. D. CLARKE in August 1862, when he marched to the front. It has been lost for several years but through the efforts of his son in Portland, Oregon, and his grandson in Galesburg, Ill., Mr. OGDEN has recovered it. He will keep it by him as long as he lives, he says, and when he is gone will leave it to the Jefferson County Library.
