    Little Things

  A little burn will hurt;
        A little sting will smart;
  And little unkind words
        Will grieve a little heart.

Word comes to Ceres saying that Robert Bell, who recently left here with his brother, Ralph, drew one of  the 160 acre land claims in Oklahoma last week. This is good news, and all their Ceres friends will be glad to hear of it. Both young men are good farmers and know what hard work is, and if farming can be made to pay there, they will make a go of it.

Burdette Almy of Bradford is in town.

The Standard has a rig completed on the Hulett lot at the head of Bee Hollow, between Myrtle and Little Genessee. Contractor H. A. Lewis of Bradford will do the drilling, and was moving his string of tools there yesterday.

Cornelison & Raymond were shut down for a few days last week on account of the breaking of the crank shaft to their drilling engine. They are drilling on the Polly farm in California Hollow, and were just about to tap the Richburg sand when the accident happened.

The ball team of Shingle House came to Ceres Sunday afternoon and met our team on the grounds near George Case's. When the smoke of battle had cleared away and the scoreman had figured up his tally, it was discovered that the visitors had run in 12 scores while the Ceres boys were getting 11. Robarts and Ostrander were in the points for Ceres while Andrews and Drake did the same for the Shingle House team.

Quite a little excitement was caused at Van Wormer's mill Thursday afternoon. They were sawing a large log when a four inch plank became wedged between the saw and the pulley on the arbor, and when the carriage was reversed the saw ran into the log quite a few feet, threw the carriage off the track and before the machinery could be stopped the lug pins were cut and the saw welded to the arbor, the saw cracked and the arbor bent. It was a wonder to 
many of the crew that the saw didn't fly to pieces and hurt some of them. Two days' sawing will about finish up their sawing for this year.
