that of Missouri, he therefore packed his grip and flew. The old, old story:
"The maid loved not wisely, but too well."
We have received an invitation to attend the commencement of the Highland

The storm last Wednesday evening was not so severe here as in other places.
While we had a very heavy rain, very little wind accompanied it. In the south

this part of our county has never been visited by a very severe storm.
