Be sure and read the report of the committe appointed to investigate annexation in all its phrases: fact tell.

Mr. Wheeler is now in Denver and will start west in a few days, going to Yuba City and Corning, Cal., and then to San Francisco.

The Hard Times party given Tuesday evening was a success. Dancing, refreshments and the costumes worn were features of the evening.

Mr. Barker and Myra are so far recovered as to be pronounced out of danger.

If the party or parties making ridiculous statements relative to the finances of the village would make inquiries of the proper parties they would avoid being looked upon as idiots.

Our assessor seems to have looked pretty sharp after personal property this time.

A meeting of the citizens will be called next week to listen to the report of the committee appointed early in the month. Evanston seems to have her hands full trying to keep out of Chicago. Possibly she will be willing to let Wilmette alone.

The fire department wants certain supplies, and in order to keep peace in the faily, they ought to get what they want. The position of volunteer firemen is no sinecure and the boys should be encouraged in every way possible. Some of those who withdrew from Hose Company No. 1 are now putting in applications for membership again.

The members of North Shore Council, No.554, of the National Union, can be justly proud of the promptness with which they and the administrative officers of their union have acted in the liquidation of the insurance on the life of one of their members, the late Harry O. Bradley. Considering that so much time had to be consumed in collecting the necessary affidavits proving the death of Bradley, since he died at Watertown, Wis., unidentified by any member of his council, and that his widow, who has resided there ever since her husband's death, had to be corresponded with and instructed repeatedly in regard to her claim, and that the sum of $5,000 being the amount of Bradley's insurance, was paid to the widow within almost two months after the date of her husband's death, it must be conceded that the record made is one to be proud of. It is admitted that the National Union stands in the first rank, fully abreast of the best of mutual insurance fraternities, and as for safety, it has no superior.
