Another Lebo Enterprise.
Lebo, undoubtedly, has more enterprising business men, than any town of the same size in the state. The latest enterprise is a grand one, and one to be heartily received by the public. It is a circulating library, consisting of 150 volumes, which will be leased at the very reasonable price of 10 cents per week for bound volumes; 5 cents per week for unbound volumes, or a membership fee of $1 per year. W. R. Pheneger, the druggist, is the enterprising man who is guilty of this scheme. Many of our citizens will hail the library with shouts of pleasure.

Lebo, Kansas.

From Thunder----.
ED. LIGHT.--Allow us to peal forth one more gentle clap. We would like to make a few slight hints. While we are not in accord with the manner in which the protracted meeting is being carried on, we censure, and severely, the parties who will hit such a blow as was hurled last week at the leaders of the meeting, and then stay away and wait for the result to come out through some other source. While the preaching has been from the Bible and many, yea, very many hard and stubborn facts uttered, we believe it a very hard heart that would not yield to the truth. It is the way the sermon is spoiled with the experience of too dry a nature and the excitement they try to get up that spoils the religion. We think they are getting out of the Bible when they are voting people into the church, or as they term it, into heaven. If a person wants to shout, I have no objections--let them shout, but keep off the floor, and shout in a respectable manner. The scripture says, let everything in the house of the Lord be done in decency and in order. Outside of the sermon, it has been far from it.

I am not in accord with any thing that militates against the peace and seccrity of society, or individuals of society. Whatever elevates man in the scale of moral worth, should have the hearty approval of all men. Rough ashlers have been polished and present to the eye beauties, upon which we love to feast. We admire the characteristic in man which allows another to express his own views upon any and all questions, without severing ties of friendship. I respect age, when age respects itself. Multiplicity of years and locks of gray, do not license a man to wound the feelings of others.LENOX.
Owing to the misfortune of being burned out in the recent fire and obliged to build, we would ask all who know themselves to be indebted to us, to call and settle at once and confer a favor. Yours respectfully,

In Lebo, Friday, November 20, 1885, a daughter to Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Walters.

I have again opened by bake oven and am prepared to furnish bread in any quantity, at all times.

The Lebo LIGHT, in giving its advertising rates, says, "For notices of twenty lies or over, we make a discount of 15 per cent." Although it is very frank about, we are sorry to know the bright little LIGHT would at all.--Greely News, 19th inst.
Excuse us, please. We didn't mean to do it. For the world we don't see how it happened--there must have been something that smelled like "pi."
Within two years this town has had a murder, three or four robberies and burglaries, a daring outrage and lastly an incendiary. Give us something for a change next time--a wife-beating scrape ar a suicide would do very well, but a hanging bee of the last offenders would hit us better than anything else.

The concert given by the Ottumwa Glee Club last Tuesday evening, at the school house, was an entire success. The Club, considering the disadvantages under which they labored, did exceedingly well. There was some misunderstanding about their having the M. E. church, it having been promised to them previously, but upon their arrival here it was flatly refused to them, and consequently put them to a great deal of trouble and delay in their arrangements.
