Church, to listen to the baccalaure

Alfred Kummer, of Portland. Spec

In the Greek class nine scholars
were present, and eight in the Latin.

Visited the Centenarian.
Mrs. Emma Malloy, tho noted
evangelist, of Port Townsend, has
been visiting her cousin F. R. Smith
for a week past, and was present at
tho celebration of tho 102d birthday
anniversary of Mrs. Elizabeth Smith.
There was quite a large family re
union at the residence of Mr. Smltlr
on this occasion (Friday), and every
body enjoyed visiting this centen
arian. Mrs. Smith is said to bo in
rather good health, cats and sleeps
well, and although unable to move
about at all, her memory is bright,
and her spirits wonderfully vivacious
for her years. Mrs. Malloy left for
Port Townsend this morning.

3Iore or the Kelly Affair.
Nearly all this paper's readers
probably remember tho case of old
man Kelly, who came out here from
Pueblo, Colorado, recently In search
of his wife and children, who had,
as he claimed, deserted ''his bed nnd
board" without just cause or prova
catlon, and who met witli so much
wanner a reception by his family
than he expected on his arrival. It
will be remembered that Mr. Kelly
was met by one Mnrston at the
farm where his wife and daughtor
were, and beautifully decorated
about the eyes by deep black marks
usually termed "a mouse." Kelly
has since begun suit for damagos
against Marston, and lias caused to
bo published in nn afternoon eon
temporary, some articles casting
very severe reflections on the fume
of his wife and daughter.
Miss Kelly, the daughter, called
nt this otllce to-day, and denied the
allegations in to-to, saying that
there was no ground for the charges
made against either her mother or
herself, and presented a large
number of references, from whom
information of full reliability con
cerning the family could bo gotten
by any one feeling enough interest
in the ease to investigate it. Site
showed conclusive proof of her
school work in Kansas and in
Colorado, and testimonials in regard
to the satisfactory manner In which
her work was performed. Site
furnished testimonials of her good
character while in Uioms states,
and further shows up the old man
Kelly as a very unlovable and rathor
disreputable character. The case
will probably all come out In the
Kelly-Marston damage suit, and
Miss Kelly bays that she is not afraid
of the result.

tho most important, was one allow

district from four to six years. Tho
