Richard FRISBY, of Chicago, has leased the Hotel Grand and will take possession December 1.

The great cash day at the Christian Church last Sunday was one that will be long remembered. The slogan, "$2,500 in 25 Minutes," was more than lived up to for the accomplishment was $2,600 in 24 minutes. The church is now entirely out of debt.

The Amoma Class meet Monday evening in the home of Minnie STROBEL and elected the following officers: President, Minnie STROBEL; vice-president, Elma DILLE; secretary-treasurer, Susie TIMBY; and press reporter, Lola JOHNSON. Mrs. J. V. WRIGHT was chosen captain of the class.

The electroliers recently placed around the square were used for the first time Tuesday night. The globes necessary to complete the "white way" effect have not yet arrived.

A mock trial, under the direction of an expert, Col. A. V. NEWTON, of Worester, MA., will be given December 8, in the Christian church under the auspices of the Mount Ayr Village Improvement Society.
