The Butler Enterprise

Excerpts from June 1, 1889

Continued from Page 1

The new trustee here now is Henry Hall.

A.B. Colbert is now town collector of Falmouth.

Mrs. Molliee Yelton is better from an attack of rheumatism.

Mrs. Julia Williams has about recovered from the mumps.

Mrs. Jane Barton spent Sunday with Mrs. Julia Williams.

Arthur Armstrong has left for Atlanta, Georgia, to visit his parents.

Robt. Taylor is the newly elected trustee of the Flower Creek School.

Miss Jennie Galbreath, who is teaching at Portland, Sundayed here.

Gano Beckett, of Meridian, spent Sunday very pleasantly at Pleasant Hill.

Rev. J.M. Weaver, one of the ablest divines in the State, has closed his meetings here.

Mrs. Bart Ackley, of Cincinnati, is expected up to Butler on a summer vacation trip soon.

Mrs. Mattie Miller, sister of Dr. Wm. H. Yelton, returned to her home in Bracken county.

Miss Nora Tomlin, of Falmouth, was a pleasant and attractive visitor of the Butler association to-day.

Mrs. Nannie Brownfield attended quarterly court at Falmouth this week - we tell her she was courting.

Next Monday Frank Lawrence will begin working on the K.C. R.R. We can but tell him to be very careful.

Miss S. Viola Moore, who lately closed her wchool at Morgan, attended the Association to-day. She will remain until Monday.

Attorneys James Ellis, C.A. and W.M. Rardin, of this place, and W.W. Wilson, of Demossville, attended quarterly court at Falmouth this week.

Miss Voglesong, of Falmouth, came down to-day and is visiting the family of R.M. Anderson. While there, she visited the Teachers' Association.

Chas. Faris, who has been attending college in Missouri, contemplates returning soon. This is Charlie's old home and his friends will be glad to see him return.

Both the schools now in session will close June 14. It would be appropriate and expressive of a spirit of harmony, if literary exercises from both schools would close the schools for the year at the same time and place.

Word has been landed here from Falmouth that the boys there want to play with the base ball club here. The Butler boys are bold and enterprising and the very fact of the receipt of the news is equivalent to an acceptance and an engagement.

One of the most pleasant events of late will be the strawberry festival given by Misses Tillie, Carrie and Emma Peal at their residence west of Butler. The Misses Peal know just how to entertain right royally, and those who are fortunate enough to be able to attend will report a good time.

It was thought that the election of school trustee at Falmouth would be a hotly contested one, and, in fact, before the polls were opened the friends of the candidates in the field were busy at work. However, R.W. Holland, our County Attorney, was elected by a majority of 86 in a total vote of 190.

Mrs. M.S. Faris has been written to in reference to her going to Missouri to take charge of the Musical Department of Humphrey's College. She will doubtless leave soon. We can assure President G.A. Smith that when he secures her services, he obtains a music teacher of great experience and ability. While we bid her farewill with great reluctance we wish ere much success and joy in her new home.
