FERRIS: A Sunday school has been organized at the Lafayette school house with an encouraging outlook. There is no reason why this should not be one of the best schools in the township. There is a good intelligent class of citizens in this community, and they should protect themselves with this moral influence. Young Mr. Benchee was elected assistant superintendent, and Miss Nora Langner, leader of the singing. Mr. Wm. McCormic is the efficient secretary, and Mrs. Gill, librarian. At the festival given by the ladies of the Lafayette vicinity, $19.24 was realized. This will be applied on minister's salary. Good order prevailed throughout.

Ferris:
 

June 1. - Wm. Tennihill had the misfortune while crossing the fence yesterday morning to catch on of his feet in the pailing (sic), causing himself to be thrown in such a manner as to break all the bones in one ankle. Though a very bad fracture, he is resting quite easy. Dr. Madison rendered the necessary surgical assistance.

John Smith, living five miles northwest of town, had the misfortune to have his residence take fire last Wednesday and before assistance could reach his home the fire had gained such headway that the building and contents were entirely destroyed. His friends are doing all they can to make him comfortable until he can again rebuild. The lumber is on the ground for a building.

It is proposed to take the Mt. Sterling jail, Pike county court house and the "Q." depot at Quincy to the World's Fair. It would be a valuable and interesting collection of antiquity.
