Died from the effect of a bullet shot he received in the eye at the siege of Vicksburg thrity years ago. Male ticket sellers at all the suburban stations of the Illinois Central road were replaced byyoung women. A femal keeper of a toll gate near Brownsville, Pa., refused to permit passage of Coxey's army until $1.89 had been paid. (Editor's Note: Coxey's Army was a protest march by unemployed workers from the United States, led by Ohio businessman Jacob Coxey. They marched on Washington D.C. in 1894, the second year of a four- year economic depression that was the worst in United States history to that time. Source: Wikepedia.) We saw an office seeker try to cross Almeron street on tip-toe yesterday to raise the shank of his feet above high mud mark. It was the same old story- he suddenly made great demonstrations in the air, and then the heavy part of his anatomy struck where it would do the most good. Miss Halcrow is certainly increase in in avoidupris, or the roads are terrible for driving from Bowesmont Monday morning, both single trees broke square in two when two miles from home. She arrived at her ost of duty at 10 o'clock. Emma waited upon the little primroses during this hour. John Barton went out into the raging Red in a boat a few days ago to help the "boys" coax a runaway wheat bare to shore. But that recent, close, shave: was too much for John and disturbed his equilibrium in a very distressing manner, so over he went and made a straight cold hole in the ruby waves. All's well that ends well even if it is surprisingly wet and chilly. April 15th, 1904 Drayton Echo Misses Jennie Craig, Alma Morsen and Etta MacLean who are teacing school in various parts of the county, are all at home this week, having had their Easter vactions extended on account of high writer. R. VanCamp is experimenting with a very novelinvention forpropelling a boat. The device consists of two cigar shaped hollow cylinders placed on each side of what appears very much like an ordinary punt, except that the keel does not rest upon the water, the weight being supported by the cylinders. Each cylinder has a series of spiral flanges running its entire length which, when the cylinders are made to revolve by means of the machinery in the center, drive the boat forward or backward according to the direction of the revolution. April 18th, 1924 Drayton Echo Washington - President Coolidge told the Senate in emphatic terms that it was time to return to a government "under and in accordance with the usual forms of the law of the land." We have heard a few of the local (Bowesmont) weather prophets predicting a dry summer.Withthe appearance of the weather Wednesday morning we believe the wild ducks and geese will have enough moisture for at least one good drink if they stop off long enough for us to get a look at them. The home of Mr. and Mrs. N. H. Lindberg was saddened on Friday, April 11, when their youngest child, Carrol Herman Gustaf aged 1 year, 3 months and 2 days, passed away after an illness of 15 days. Mr. Hobart Buchanan has bought and installed a Soda Fountain and a back bar with a large mirror which gives Hobart's place an attractive appearance. Jack Holt in 'The Tigers Claw" Saturday night the 19th, at the Movies. Alo a Neely Edwards Comedy "Coal Dust Twins." Some of the questions handed one of the teachers this week for general information test at the high school. 1. Who wrote McCauley's History of England? 2. When was the War of 18127 3.

To help ensure these events are safe and still fun, some helpful advice and resources follow. For more information check out Parents LEAD @ Keeping your Teen Safe - Never provide your child, or their friends, with alcohol. Not only does it increase your child's risk for alcohol related problems now and later in life - but you are also putting yourself at risk (for more information on ND Laws see: http://www. php Here are some things to keep in mind: Don't send mixed messages. Sometimes, it is thought that if you 'supervise' the underage drinking- you are protecting your child. This is actually a misconception: research indicates that adult-hosted parties that serve alcohol to teens do not reduce risk factors. Keep them safe on the road. 2010 ND Department of Transportation Data indicates that 50% of drivers involved in alcohol-related crashes in ND were 18-29 years of age. Supervise. Letting teens go to an unsupervised hotel room, party or distant location like a cabin rarely ends well. It is much easier to engage in risky behavior including using drugs and alcohol, engage in sexual activity or become a victim of an accident. Negotiate. Curfews are important for teens. During a special event, you may have to negotiate on this topic some. Discuss what is realistic to expect during a special event. Having a plan for the whole evening with several acceptable options is a great defense for not being pressured into going to the "drinking" party. Remind them that you will still be holding them accountable: Say "I will be up when you get home" or "Wake me when you get home." Communicate Expectations/Hold them accountable. These events are special - but remind your teen that your family's rules still apply. Use these special events to reinforce your messages about leading a healthy lifestyle, your expectations and consequences for breaking rules. Talk about the consequences of underage drinking and being in a vehicle with an intoxicated driver. Help them plan. Help your son or daughter plan Tales and Trails Continued From Page 2 ' ' for the types of situations that may present on the night of this special event. Role-play or discuss what to do if confronted with different risky situations. The Partnership at Drugfree suggests a checklist that can help your teen begin thinking about the event and produces opportunities for conversations. http: / / decoder.drugfree. org/2009/04/22/prom- checklist- and-tips-for- teens-and-parents/ Get Involved - Parents that are involved can help create environments that are less risky. Here are some ideas on how to get involved: o Sign up for the prom committee and help plan the after party o Talk to the parent of your child's date or friends and make sure you are all getting the same story about the plans. o If not already in place help your schools formulate guidelines for a safe event, or host a party at your home. o When entertaining youth make sure you have plenty of food, non-alcoholic beverages and adults available but not part of the party.
