Horak, of Oconto, Wis., who were guests of Postmaster Ogden be- tween boats Sunday.Mr. Culpepper renewed some old acquaintances among the crew on the steamship Av- alon, as he was employed on the old Hermosa some 34 years ago, during the Banning management of the Is- land. One of his memorial feats, when he first obtained his position with the Hermosa, was to search for a left-handed monkey wrench, which he was told, was to be found behind a certain barrel, and as he was about to discover the article for which he was searching, he was helped along by the administration of a healthy deck mop in the hands of 'his superior officer, First Mate Splitosser, who is still an officer on the steamship Avalon.

Brodrick and wife, of Marysville, Kan. ; and AI Gillis and wife of Kan- sas City, Kan.

L. Byram, County Tax Collector, and will be in the mail about November 1st. The statements involve charges on more than 1,251],000 parcels of property.
