Anderson, of Fort .Dodge, has nine men at work on tho State Bank building and expects to have the brick work done in ten days if the weather is favorable. Last Saturday was a very busy day for our merchants, one of whom reported sales to the amount of $141 and another sold $200 worth, and so on. Business is picking up. ' The Baptist church in their business meeting a week ago Monday night extended a call to Rev. L. A. Cummins for another year. He has not yet decided whether to accept or not. Deputy Sheriff Holloway returned from an ofliicial trip to Independence last Thursday. He visited the wonderful kite shaped track at that place, and reports that the races were fine. Burt has so far recovered from the doctrine of borrowing ball players that they actually (?) did get some players from the country nine west of town to help them down Bancroft? Consistency, thou art a jewel. The Bancroft ball club was to play the Wesley boys on Tuesday of this week at Wesley, and Wesley is to play Bancroft on our home ground neit Friday. There will be a bowery dance In the evening for the benefit of the ball club. Tickets $1. R. A. Martin, of Sheldon, wh,q . is in the furniture business, was here this week, looking after his land interests, and while -here visited our furniture man, Brouson, whom Mr. Martin says sells furniture cheaper than he does himself at Sheldon. Quite a compliment. '•' A wild and wooly cow boy of the western stripe by the name of E. M. Sammulson who declared he would herd where he pleased north of town and would pay for his grass land when he got ready, was disarmed of his cow boy accourtmeiits and lodged in the Algona jail by Deputy Sheriff Holloway last Saturday. The Demorest Medal contest came off last Wednesday night and the speaking was prpnounced very fine by all present. Mabel Johnson won the silver medal, Orvel Ostrander being second and Bert Streater third. The judges were Prof. Dixson, of Algona, and Messrs. Callanan and Kenyon, of this place. The audience seemed satisfied with the decision, and altogether it was a success, so much so that the Good Templars have decided to have another in a few weeks. Six of the Bancroft nine and three picked up men went down to play the nines of Burt and West Burt on the Burt grounds last Saturday where a splendid game was put up. At the close of the 8th inning tho score stood 8 to 7 in favor of Bancroft, but owing to passed balls by Crosswait not being able to hold the new pitcher Kenyon, Burt ran in 4 scores in the first half of the ninth. There was no money up oh the game however, and we heard good many say that the result would have been different if there had been money at stake. It is a matter of congratulation to both parties in Iowa this fall that the issues are so clearly defined on the liquor question. That the Republicans should stand by prohibition with so strong a plank was a surprise to its enemies. To the friends of the cause it was a matter of rejoicing because all prohibitionists can now vote a ticket which is so clear in its thrusts at the liquor power. No one can say after election that prohibition was not an issue and that the people have not expressed their will on the subject. "A school house on every hill top and no saloon in the valley," is the motto. A pleasant company of our young people started last Friday morning for the lakes, on a few days fishing and pleasure trip. Among those who composed the party were, Messrs Olof Pearson, Willis Talluian, Boy John- sou, Bert Streater, Carl A4olfson, Guy Streater, Amundus Andrew, Lewis Streater, and the Misses Lillian V-and Lillian If, Johjjgop, AUg0 Johu- 60$, MabjLe j Ella Johnson, Flo. and Madge Jordan, and Grace Anderson. After they liad started it begun to rain, but as we liavo since learned it did not continue to rain at the lakes, wo presume they liad a good time and will have some great fish stories to relate on their re- burn home. tsr-Coutinued on local pages ol REPUBLICAN A Short Talk 6n Sheep, At one of the New York farmers' institutes Mr. J. H. Rutherford, of Angelica, in ah address on sheep husbandry said: Sheep must have the best of care. My advice is to buy sheep and to keep them. This we must do if we would restore to our farms their former prosperity. We can do this the best with sheep, and at the least cost. In the following statement I have charged for pasturage at cost, as if you hired pasture, and have given the manure for the little cave, including the pleasure: One hundred sheep will cost $400; you will pay for hay and grain to winter $100, and for pasturing remainder of year, $80; cost of shearing and washing, $8, making $588. You will raise 125 lambs at $3.50 per head, $438; 550 Ibs. of wool at 80 cents, $105; total, $603. You have also saved enough to keep the original number more than good, I have given advantage in the statement to the debit side. Ought not any farmer to be satisfied with the returns? Do not hold your wool over—there is no money in that—take the market price; stick to the business; do not ever get discouraged and sacrifice your sheep. No animal reposes more confidence in man than sheep; none affords greater reward. Must Change the Place. Miss Twilling—I suppose you remember, Mr. Galloway, that last night, in spite of my fruitless struggles, you had the effrontery, sir, to actually kiss mo. Calloway (meekly)—Yes, I remember the circumstance. Miss Twilling—Well, if you think you are going to repeat that operation in the hall to-night yon are much mistaken. I don't propose to leave this room all the evening.—West Shore. An Old Question Answered. "What is the deepest depth of ignorance?" asked the philosopher musingly, and tho man of the world made haste to answer, "It is the ignorance displayed by a railway official when there is a wreck on his road."—St, Joseph News. Costly. "I envy your husband's jolly way. He is always laughing," said Mrs. Sinks. "Well, it has its drawbacks," returned the other. "John laughs so much I can't keep buttons on his vests."—Harper's BUSINESS, LOCALS..- J. C3k HAS A FttLL LINE OF Agriculturar Implements, Wagons, BUGGIES, Etc., AT BANCROFT, IOWA.
