Grey began the erection of coal shed yesteduy between Campbell's elevator and the hay barns. We wish the boya much success in their venture. The Blue Earth parties have their new store enclosed nud while every one can attend to their own business as they see fit we rise to remark that they are putting up a very inferior looking building for a booming city like Bancroft. A young child of Geo. Graham fell from an up stairs porch one day last week and was severely bruised but is improving rapidly under the treatment of Dr. Busby. If Wesley thinks Bancroft is such a soft mark for their base ball team why don't they trot their webbed feet up this way some day and get served np Roberts fashion. Mat Lang, who livea on the Clausen place south of town, has just finished threshing a piece of wheat that yielded 25 bushels per acre. Who says wheat can't be raised in the North End. Tho lawn social at Mrs. A. J. Berryman's last Wednesday evening was well attended and tho Chinese lanterns made a very handsome appearance. The receipts were something over $15. A good catch—A young man that will come to an ice cream social too lato and then try to jew the ladies down to 5c. per dish for cream because the cake is all gone. Such a party lives here. JjiR. Ilofius was down to his fathers' in Union last Sunday and on his return home he brought a large number of apples from his father's trees which are being sold like hot cakes in the Bancroft Tea Company's store. A son of Chris Godfreysou, who lives 3* miles north of town, was badly bitten by a dog while out hunting one day last week. Dr. Busby was called, who sewed up and dressed the wound find the boy is progressing nicely. John G. Smith, Republican candidate for Representative, and C. L. Lund, the prospective Democratic candidate came to town on political matters last Monday, and brought D. A. Haggard along for umpire in the match game. Our fellow townsman, P. R. Grose, was married on Tuesday to Miss Angie Hunt, an estimable young lady of Bancroft. The ceremony was performed in Bancroft by Rev. Ward, of that place. We wish the young couple every joy.— Lu Verne News. The Misses Grace Anderson and Ella Johnson returned to their home in Red Wing Minn., last Thursday evening after an extended visit here. A number of friends accompanied them as far as Ledyard and returned on the 6 o'clock freight. "When you want an extemporaneous speech at a convention Sam Mayne of Bancroft is the right man in the right place. He hits the nail on the head every time:—Lu Verne News." Why certainly Mr. News Bancroft is in the front rank all the time. Rev. Day, who was to preach at the school house_ last Sabbath afternoon and at Burt in the evening, received a telegram on that day that his mother was dangerously ill and therefore he immediately started for her bedside, leaving Rev. Richie to fill his pulpit at both places. Several of the Roberts family were on a rampage last Saturday and when they became so wild that they wanted to whip somebody they were accommodated by one of our business men, when they went home feeling that they had received more than they had bargained for. "While Leo Tibbets and Chuck Lindsay of Fenton were getting out of a cart after a hunt last Monday a gun was accidentally shot off wounding Mr. Tibbets very badly in the arm. Dr. Busby of this place was called immediately and thoguht that amputation was not necessary it being simply a llesh wound. The Fairmont shooting tournament came off as advertized last week and although the wind blow hard some good scores were made. The following are some of the averages. Mc- Ilale 138, Bird 137 Sundstrom 133 Wilson 129 Swanson 128. These numbers were out of a possible 104 and considering the weather Bancroft can not complain of her record of 133. We were informed that the Robert's fipiily would thrash the Editor if he did not take back something that was said in last weeks NEWS, but we knew wherein lay our safety so we bought us a pair of those light shoes at Barslou's and are now keeping our face toward the west, waiting for the appearance, over the brow of tho hill, of the eleven ferocious faces of the male portion of the Roberts tribe.
