"Mr. Richard Murphy is suffering from a bad cold.

Mr A. Barnes of Little Lake has been quite ill with pneumonia.

Mrs. Thomas G. Murphy has been quite unwell lately. She is now 86 years old. At time of writing she is improving slowly.

Mr. Wm. Walker has had a few poor spells this winter, but his health has generally been pretty good considering his age being nearly ninety.

The annual Missionary sermon at Sharon, was preached by Rev. Mr. Ross of Hilton, on the 21st, which was the result of a liberal giving to the cause.

February of this year has a record of more continued cold weather than is known of in former years. It had 18 days when the thermometer was at or below zero.

The Woman’s Missionary Society of this circuit are getting up quite a heavy parcel of materials for the Missionaries, consisting of quilts and the necessaries.

Mrs. Geo. Dickenson (formerly Miss Hattie Dunnett) of Shiloh, has been the organist of the church in that place for a good many years. She has to leave the position now as her husband has bought a farm near Mr. L. Simmon’s place, to which they are about to remove. In view of this her many friends in Shiloh lately presented her with a purse of $42.00 in money as a token of their goodwill towards her.

Mr. Alonso Shears of Michigan, has been visiting his early friends in this part of the country. He was born and reared to manhood on the place owned by his father, the late David Shears, where Mr. Chas. Shears now lives. He and his twin brother, Arron, both went to Michigan to live in early manhood and have been quite successful. The former now owns two farms there. It is a peach-growing district where he resides, and in 1902, the last bearing year, he realized $1600.00 out of his peach orchard."
