Mr and Mrs F C Martin gave a social last Thursday evening in honor of the completion of their new residence north of the city. Mr Martin has spared neither time nor money in the erection and furnishings of his dwelling which is one of the best in the county. It is a two and a half story frame building, consisting of nine rooms with a rock foundation and a fine cellar, cement all through. Mr Martin is an extensive stock man feeding at present about 130 head of cattle, he owns about 600 acres of land, all in one body. He was born in Ohio, and is 45 years of age, with his wife at 36 years old. They have 3 boys.
