The reason is he has a W silver watch and chain pre- by his friends on on his 45th . Sampson made the presentation speech. The affair was well planjflid and a complete surprise to J. Dr'-Tlie drum corps contributed the musical part of the program. L. Tuttle, a former business man of Wnittemore, has recently moved his family to South Englewood, Chicago. MrTr. belongs to the commission firm Of Tuttle & Foster, with office on Pacific avenue. Folks are all home from the state fair again and they all report a fine time with plenty of sight seeing. Mr. Farley lias a brother from Kentucky visiting him since Friday. Tile new steel hay press works like a charm. So the proprietor, Ilotelling, says. A very pleasant surprise party was given Ouy Farley last Thursday afternoon in honor of his seventh birthday. His little friends and schoolmates gathered at his home immediately after school and were made happy by being liberally treated to ice cream and cake. G. E. Boyle has been absent from town, out hunting, of late, and it is feared lie might miss seeing some of those interesting runaways lie enjoys so hugely. „ MANCKOPT. Special Correspondence. BANCROFT, Sept, 9. — In our baste we can pen but few items this week, and first we notice a few improvements in town. The much needed crossings are being laid in our streets. • Dr. Cutler's barn on his lots by the Baptist church, looms up in large proportions. Oscar Pierson is building a house in northeast Bancroft. A. J. Berryman expects u brother from Montour to visit him today. Our public schools opened yesterday and a lull attendance is reported. Only one of the original teachers is retained, that one being Miss Byrne. Miss Flora Jordan goes to the southwest part of the state to visit for a few weeks. She leaves today. Also the Misses Stella Kinney anO Iiillie Ward leave today for school at . Glenvvood and Council Blnife. Sickness still prevails in the family of Mr. Streater. Luther Bingham, of Gettysburg, S. D.. has taken up his abode among u and is ready to do any work in bis line — carpentry. \ Grandpa Wickvvire is out again aftei p severe sickness. Such men are a sunshine in the world, and while the busy world lias lost their activities because of old . age, yet we miss their cheery presence, when they are confined to the Louse and are glad when we can greet them again. The I. G. G. T. entertainment was success all round and should they attempt an entertainment again will receive a larger patronage. In the late storm the Lutheran churcl was torn by lightning damaging it to the extent of $25. Starting at the point of the spire the bolt ran down the belfry tearing the lumber in shred' both inside and out, parting at the iront entrance it destroyed the casing on botli sides of the door inside am • out, yet though it made fine kindling while passing down no trace of fire ciu be seen. The curious are now flocking to the barn of Mr. Tallman, our novelty man who lias now in his possession by pur •cbase, the wonderful eight-footec borse from the Black Hills, also the six-legged calf. The horse is not an il shaped animal but, on the contrary, is rather pretty. At each ankle the leg •divides ami each branch has a perfec loot. The calf has t\vo fore legs am feet find four perfectly formed him legs and feet located side by side am is a rare curiosity. iiuivr. Special CoiTi-spomlonco. BUKT, Sept. 9.—Our town and vicin ity is ut this time enjoying good healtl and prospering linely. The new. im provements are being completed as fas as possible. Dr. McCormack's bouse Avill be occupied this week. Our new meat market will be commenced a once and the livery barn is to be buil as soon as possible. Fred Nicholson's BOAttO PROCEEDINGS* Offl«lfil tteeofrt of thn liy the County Supcrvlnors lU tlto barn will soon be finished and it will be a credit to the town, as it will be handsome, commodious, and substantially built. George Eastman is building an addition to his house. A special train brought the officials to our town last week, and brought two gentlemen here to look up a location for a grain elevator. They leased the ground and the building is to be put up at once. All our neighbors are rejoicing in the prosperity of our town and this part of Kossuth. In fact we believe we are as prosperous as any county in Iowa. Rev. Jones returned from bis eastern trip last week and brought a helpmate •with him. All join in wishing them a happy future. The public school commenced last week under the management of Miss Sallisbury. 'Mr, Buell, of Algona, is here helping Steve Nicholson in the store during Hardy's stay in Minneapolis. W. B. Quarton spent a few hours in town today on professions) business. The sociable and ice cream supper at Mrs. Bunker and Wooden's will be the social event of this week. Wednesday •evening. We were not able to be present at the sociable at the Mayhew House last week but learn it was an enjoyable one. Benny Mayhew and Will McDonald liave gone to Winnebago City to attend •school this winter. A graded school is one of our necessaries that should be looked after, as it would enable us to keep our cuildreu at home until they are farther advanced than they can be in our one room school.

J. H. HOFIUS, G. IT. PETERS, Clerk. Chairman. tt Coftta Young Farmer* of Good Taste •ad J*«»gr«jMlvo Tend«nel<!8 Something: to CWt Their Eye Teeth Cat—Some of the J?*«na»ive Horso Trader's Trick*. There is a doctrine set forth every now and thett by city editors of farming papers that it costs no more to raise a colt than a steer after the colt is once started. The real farmer knows a good deal'bet- ter, but the pleasing fiction is useful for some people, and abundantly quoted for this among other reasons, that it brings fresh grist to their mills. Every young farmer of good tasto and progressive tendencies wants to trade off his homely yoke of oxen or pair of old plugs for a team of young mares that will do all his farm work quite as well as the old set and raise new colts at the same time. This doctrine has made the trade in Ontario mares for the last three springs a very lively one. But somehow it does not result so well in fact as it did in promise. Some of these nice young mares that cost over $500 a pair have never dropped a foal yet, and he would not be a very rash prophet who ventured to predict that they never will. A capable fanner the other day pointed to a good; looking mare and said, "She is a good mold, but she has never had a colt that liyed a week." Such cases as these are only too numerous, and where the bed rock of facts is got down to it is found that it is only the old fraud in a new form. Those mares had been tried «md found incapable of producing a colt worth anything, incapable sometimes of producing any colt at all. But they could be fitted for the western market, and now that people here have paid sweetly once more for cutting their eye teeth they understand the trick. Some farmer within a few miles of one's own door may have a useful mare or filly to sell, but she has no style or "finish," and the prospective buyer gets the style and finish in a sale stable; but the ragged filly next door, sound as a bell, cannot be sold within $100 of the price got for the imported article, whose good looks are the only good thing about her, so far at least as breeding is concerned. "Far away fowls have fair feathers" would be a good saying for the man to remember who wants to steer clear of paying fancy prices for the thing he does, not get. There are no doubt honest horse traders that would not knowingly put a barren mare into a customer's hands, but ought they not to get a step higher than that and make sure before they invest in breeding mares for this market, not only that they do breed, but that they will throw colts likely to justify the high figures put upon imported eastern mares?—Nor'west Farmer. Mule liaising. The reason the mule brays so is owing to a peculiar construction of his larynx, the encyclopedia says, which is quite satisfactory. These braying animals do not begin to be raised to the extent they might profitably bo in this country. The reason the mule is not handsomer is that his asinine ancestors have been half fed and cuffed and abused for ages and kept on scant food till they are undersized. It is quite possible that if the business of raising pure blooded donkeys were pursued in this country with a view to the breeding of large sized mules both the size and beauty of these long eared animals would be increased. At any rate wo think it would pay to make the experiment. In the illustration is seen a recently imported Spanish jack that is really a graceful beast. The true mule is a cross between the jack and the mare. In utilizing the mule southern farmers are wiser than northern. The mule is •Municipal tt. tMuulclpttie. liejjolved, That D. A.

He does not eat more than half as muck as the horse, is not nearly so liable to disease and has much more strength in proportion to his size. If treated kindly, too, we have undoubted Authority for saying that he •will prove himself thoroughly docile and aa intelligent as a horse. Again we •would urge on stock raisers the importance of raising large mules for the market. We believe there is good money in it. The desired result can be obtained by breeding large sized mares to the largest jacks. It would be money in the pockets of our farmers aod stockmen it they had mules to do most of their farm work and hauling, particularly in hilly and stony districts. Another good quality of the long eared animal is that he is surer footed than the hone. As a rule the mule, like most hybrids, is unable to reproduce its kind, but there are two or three instances on record in which the female mule has given birth to a cojt.
