"Upon the Mormon people. She spoke -Of her own experience of some months residence in Provust, Utah, -where she discovered that the best Mormon people—who are not polygamists—are .strong advocates of temperance and •of all good reforms. All were glad to welcome Miss Simpkins as a new musician in our community. The music furnished by Miss Simpkins added greatly to the interest of the meeting. Mrs. Conner read an excellent selection, "The Mother a Creator." The idea was conveyed that the tissues of the brain become hardened around the thoughts of the child, and thus in later life, the physical learning and expression bear all the marks of the thinking, so it would follow that if one would be handsome lie must think well. Some remarks were made upon the Tenth National Temperance Convention, which is now in session in Saratoga, N. Y. About twenty different temperance organizations are represented in the Convention, and all phases of the subject are considered. The Second National Temperance Convention will bo held in Prohibition Park, on Staten Island, in August. It was a query wherein the National Congresses and the National Convention differ. Perhaps some one can give the needed information. AN ODD GHOST STOBY, 8HAWLEY, THE GROCER BOY'3 SPIRIT, BRINGS TROUBLE.

JULIA TisiiLHsit, Teacher. Miss Emily Kingsley, a most respectable maiden lady, who lives in a dainty little flat on Throop avenue, near Hancock street, Brooklyn, is being pursued by the outraged ghost of a German grocery boy, Misa Kingsley has a snug little fortune, and for years she ha» maintained an independent establishment with the aid of a dignified colored person named Martha. As Miss Kingsley and Martha never kept late hours nor gave card parties, they led, on the whole, a very happy, if uneventful, existence, until Within the past year. Then the "hant" came into their lives. Fifteen months ago Miss Kingsley was living in a flat on Madison street, Brooklyn. Most of her supplies in the provision line were drawn from a corner grocery in the neighborhood and delivered by a little German grocery boy. He was a ."jolly fat chap, with a stupid face and prodigiously red cheeks, full blue eyes and hair that gained him the title of "cottontop" with all the children of the neighborhood. HIS BOSS CALLED HIM "SHAWLEY." His trips to Miss Kingsley's flat were a never ending source of delight to "Shawley," whose correct name, fry the way, was Karl. Like many other soaiden ladies, Miss Kingsley detested children, and though "Shawley" did tho work of three or fourmen, still, on account of his size, and particularly on account of his actions, he was nothing but an intensely disagreeable boy in the eyes of "die alte jungfrau," as she was known at "Shawley's" store. One day, while the poor lady was suffering from a particularig-'jjuwl state of nervousness, "Shawley" came thumping up the stairway with a big basketful potatoes for the Kingsley household. He had been told scores of times to send his goods up by the dumbwaiter; but, like a true grocery boy, he did just the opposite, though it caused him a good deal o: extra trouble; With an exclamation o: rage Miss Kingsley flew out into the hal just in time to see the boy mounting th< last step. Startled by the sudden appear ance of his angry customer, and com pletely taken by surprise, "Shawley' stumbled and, losing his hold, tumbled down the stairs, with the big basket on top of Mm. Miss Kingsley, grimly observing that it served him right, bounced back into her sitting rooms. As for "Shawley," he lay wonderfully still for a German grocery boy. It was dark in Kbe hall, otherwise ifc might have been seen that his usually red cheeks had very suddenly lost all their color. After a few minutes, however, during which the people on the floor stood by laughing, "Shawley" managed to get up. He gathered, in as many of his potatoes as he could find, though it gave him a queer pain to stoop, and then he tried to carry the basket up again. But he couldn't. HAUNTED BY THE BOY. So he left it where it was, and, still with that queer pain which almost made him cry with every step, he slowly walked back to the store. .Next day it was said that "Shawley" was sick in bed, and a week later a hearse drove uj> to the side door back of the grocefy and carried the little' 'cottontop" away to the Lutheran cemetery. Miss Kingsley, who is a, thoroughly good hearted lady, was inexpressibly shocked. And then came the "hant." Not at midnight, nor even after dark, but in broad daylight. Every grocery boy who delivered her fflpjaries was a living image of "ShawleyT^They called themselves "Ernest" and "Yake" and "Hiney" and "Willie," and they all smiled at Miss Kingsley's startled looks when she first saw them, but the good lady knew that they were all "Shawley." At first Martha waxed pathetically earnest in trying to dissuade her mis- trees from believing in this illusion. The doctor found that his patient was suffering from hysterical mania, caused by incessant worrying over poor "Shawley's" death. In this atate it was not unnatural that she should imagine herself haunted by the appearance of the other grocery boys, who generally resemble, one another as closely as two peas in a pod. The doctor, like Miss Kingsley's friends, tried to show her that she was deceived by this resemblance, but so far he has not succeeded, and unless a change comes soon he will order- his patient from the city.—New York Continent.

WniTTEMoiiE July 20.—Whittemore is till looking for a shoemaker. Barley harvest is commencing, and crops, especially oats, look fine m this >art of the county; some corn will have o hustle if it gets out of the way of the 'rost. Another party of our towns people are iontemplating a camping sojourn at Arnold's Park. They expect to hear Talmage lecture on the 24th at Spirit Lake cainp grounds. Miss May Hotelling is attending the teacher's Institute at Algona. Presiding Elder Black and family, of Algona, made a short call on Whittemore "riends last Wednesday. Whittemore was well represented at ,he dedication of the German M. E. Church, nine miles north of town, last Sunday, the dedicatory services were icld in the morning, and conducted in ,he German language; they were very im- Dressive and interesting. Three ministers from abroad were present, beside the resident pastor.The English sermoninthe afternoon was reported to be an excellent one, by those who heard it, the speakers name we wev,e unable to get. The people there have n nice, neat church, completely finished, outside and in, and paid for, of which they are justly proud. The singing and floral decoration's were in keeping with the sermons. Miss Wright, of West Bend, was a guest at A. H. Hotelling's Sunday. Christian Endeavor meeting was well attended Sunday evening. The young people are doing a good work.

Whittemore Song Circle meets every Friday evening at the school house. No spectators are" admitted as the class are preparing for a concert. The Ladies Aid Society meets with Mrs. Whitehorn Thursday afternon at the usual hour. There is class meeting every other Sunday iu the school house at 9:30 a. m., followed by preaching at 10 o'clock by Rev. Call, of Rodman. His next appointment is Sunday, August 2d. There was a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Baptist church last Friday evening. There was a large congregation at the Catholic church last Sunday morning. We understand Father Nichols put in a bill of $100 damage done to his church by lightning, and has received it. Quite a number of our people attended a party at Thos. MeGovem's Saturday evening. What Whittemore needs is more good temperance workers and less beer drinking in barns and warehouses. Let the fathers of this town ask themselves if they arc setting an example in this respect ihoy wish their boys to imitate. Henry Geotohe's house is much improved in appearance by a second coat of paint. There was another show camped in town this week. Corry Ridgeway is having the interior of his new house painted and grained. Ask Samson and Ridgeway about their hay deal. The M. E. parsonage of this place is now free from debt.

Silk Umbrellas Common, The manufacture and consumption of silk umbrellas is steadily on the increase in this couuljy. To see a cotton umbrella in use in the large cities is about as rare an occurrence now as the sight of a silk umbrella was thirty years ago. The rapidly increasing wealth of the country, together with the great reduction in the cost of silk fabrics, are the main causes which have effected this change. While the majority of the Bilk umbrellas in use are'made of a texture of silk and cotton, the increase is in the consumption not only of all silk umbrellas, but also of the very highest and finest grades. One of the umbrella manufacturers of this city says he believes that the day is not far distant when a well dressed American will not be seen on the street with a cheap, shabby or clumsy umbrella, but will deem a fine, close rolling, natty one 93 much a personal requisite as a good looking hat or ooat.—New York Contwwnt.

IIWINGTON, July 21,1891.—Atlas Bel ton is hauling lumber for a large barn. Mr. Fuller of Algona has charge of the work. A Miss King, of Des Moineg, is a guest of the Misses Mann. Mr. Z. Andrus has erected a large barn this summer. Miss Nannie Dutton was a guest of Georgia McNeal over Sunday. Dr. Garfield and sons, of your town, took in the lecture by Miss Alice Mann, at Irvington, last Sunday. They came down on their safeties. The lecture by Miss Mann on "Truth for Authority, not Authority for Truth" culled out a fair sized audience. It was delivered in an easy and pleasing manner and to those who may accept the doctrines it advanced, was, undoubtedly, an interesting lecture. The regular preaching service at 8 p.m. still continues under Rev. Caldwell. Sunday School at 2 p. m. The church is steadily increasing its membership roll and good is being done in our midst. The choir is a good one and unless Algona looks well to her laurels may yet lead the line, Ole Oleson as leader, with R. R. Smith as assistant bass; Misses Dodge and Robinson as sopranos and Fred Clark as tenor, make a good choir, Mr. Reed's house will soon be ready for occupancy. We don't like to complain, but that bridge below the "King hill" does a great deal of it whenever a load passes over it. Where is our Toad master? It might be well to have him around at the moment that bridge goes down with a load, so that he could be assured that the damages charged against the township were not exorbitant. Horace Mann is now visiting in the far east. He intends to see the "Thousand Isles" and other of the "Great Lake Systems" beauties. WEST HEND. Journal: W. A Jones and J. S. Robinson made a lightning change of household effects Tuesday morning. W. A. is now located in his recent purchase, while Sim is domiciled in the house vacated by Mr. Jones. The fronts that have been ordered for Ihmels' and Gardner's buildings are said to be the finest in the county, not even excepting Emmetsburg. They will, of course, beat anything in this part of the state, and will give West Bend quite a metropolitan appearance. The Odd Fellows have rented the second story of the Ihmels brick block for lodge rooms. This will make the Odd Fellows fine quarters, as nice as can be found anywhere. Mr. and Mrs. Rist, of Omaha, visited at Frank Potter's over Sunday. Mrs. Rist is still here and will remain for a more extended visit. Mrs. Rist is a sister of Mr. Potter. THE GRANGE S .

The Iowa Contest, New York Independent: The democrats propose to introduce the saloon, the republicans to keep it out. It remains for the voters to decide which policy they will support. It cannot be that intelligent Christian men will vote to rehabilitate the saloon! They will so vote if they vote the democratic ticket, and a vote for the third party will have practically the same result. Now is the time for the friends of temperance to show their colors and rally to the support of the party that gave the state prohibition and against the party whose administration has tended to break it down, Iowa is still free; let her be kept free. The republican party ought to win this fall. It has a good ticket, a good platform and a good cause. The Broad Issue. Keok'uk Gate City: Let every prohibitionist and every man who does not want the saloon to go over all Iowa, understand that this year is to settle the question.
