They retired from the farm in 1907 and Mr. Cessna died in 1908. She is survived by two step-daughters, Mrs. Wallace Yeazel and Mrs. Ellen Tibbetts of Homer, and one step son, William Cessna, of Adrian, Mich.

So when Mr. Cline returned home he was astonished, surprised, laughed until the tears run from his eyes, and shook hands all round. Thirty took dinner, had a joyful time and went away wishing Mr. Cline many more birthdays. The News extends congratulations also to both Spencer and Rachael.

49 About 7 o'clock, on the morning of the 15th, a fight took place near Danville, in which David Clem cut Miles Gritton's throat from ear to ear, from which he died immediately. Clem was also stabbed in the bowels, whether by himself or Gritton is not known. He will probably die from the effects of his wounds. It seems Clem had rented a farm to Gritton and they had a difficulty in dividing the fruit, and the rencontre was occasioned by a lawsuit regarding this division.
