Column Three

-- Monday our office was gladdened by a visit from J.R. McDonald and O.G. Scriver, from Putnam. Mac makes a tour hither about once a year, and a;ways finds a warm welcome from his many friends in West Union.

-- BLAKESLEY, the jeweler, had company last week; L.M. Blakesley, a conductor on the Pittsburg & Ft. Wayne, J.W. Blakesley, and E.M. Blakesley, train master of the Wabash, all brothers in law, residents of Ft. Waune.

-- BLAKESLEY, the jeweler, has kept a record of every change made in his regulator for the year [ast, from May 6, 1881 to May 6, 1882, and the variation amounts to only five seconds. He gets the time about once a month from Cedar Rapids.

--Rumor says BRO. SCOBEY has been invited to deliver an oration over the laying of the corner stone of the new jail. No fitter choice could be made, and no one more deserves the compliment implied than Mr. S., who has done so much for West Union.

-- FRANK THATCHER was ordered to the reform school by Judge Granger, and taken there by Lee Desart, because of his bad habits and viciousness. He has been leader of a gang of bad boys who have committed petty acts of thieving during the winter, and has begun the road that must lead to penitentiary unless he mends his ways. His condition should be a warning to all such as need a warning.
