Less ftttd Use More Oil. Out 'poet, W., 11. Catnpbell, spent Oiticli of his 'time around tho water works Week before last, while the pipe and screen points were being put down. He Wfts much shocked at the terrible Storni of profanity indulged in by the •expert fronrOfctawa, Illinois, who was .sent here to superintend tire work, and going homo one evening he fiat down and in a moment of inspiration dashed off the following poem, which we regard of the ripest fruits of his rare poetic genius that wo have yet .seen. Talk about the death of Lowell, and the decline of American poetry •when we have such men as Holmes, IVhittier and Campbell left. Wo publish the poem at the request of Mr. •Campbell. Patience will in -every case Assist us hi our toil, Thau why not good udvlc« embrace, Swear less, and use more oil. •Of water find a (rood supply, Though It be fresh or briny, And try'to stop this hue and cry H you drill down to Ohiua. The noble engines work with might The pumps will do the same, Then put your traps together right And none will be to blame. 'You swear at such a rapid rate I cannot keep from thinking, Tlie water yon'll contaminate Andspoiliit all for drinking,. Stop your blasphemous language, gents, It really seems u pity That water Rot by mum expense Should poison 8.11 the city. Have those -experts got no remorse, So deep In sin they've fallen? .They swear enough tobalk si horse Oi scarc'tho Dutch trom Holland. -I hope yoti'll change the program soon, So awful and surprising, You're drilling down so near your doom I smell the sulphur rising. •O'er wrongful drawbacks that we bear To wrath we ne'er give vent, And if the city does''nt swear You ought to be content. W. II.,. THE NORMAL SCHOOL Prof. Carlton, who is to have charge .of the Commercial Department of the Normal School, arrived Monday night with his .family from Des Moines. Mr. Carlton is a graduate of the Shenan- doahNormal College, where he taught for two years after" graduation. Tlie past year he taught commercial bran dies at Highland Park Normal College in Des Moines. We understand that a night class in commercial branches is the tnftny talented young tnefl that she is sending forth to occupy positions m the higher walks of life. The circus last Friday drew many of Wesley's citizens from their usual oc cupations and Induced them to go to A> gona to see the elephant atia other animals. Among the visitors going ifom this place on that day was a Southern gentleman who is spending, ft few weeks Gere. Ho says he went to see the crowd rather than tlie circus. He evidently wishes to study Northern customs. Perhaps you have had a "chiel ftma»K ye takin'notes" for some Southern news paper. Mr. Willis Wilkinson, from Orlando, Florida, is hero looking after a section of his land lying two and one half miles east «f Wesley. Mr. Wilkinson's father purchased this land, and two or three more sections, thirty-five years ago from the government. The laud has been worked by neighboring farmers and now has 230 acres under cultivation. Mr, Wilkinson purposes building on the land and _leav- ng some good man in charge while he returns to Florida to look after his orange grove. He has a gjrove of 2500 trees just coming into bearing. The striking appearance of my con tribution in your last Issue, so gracefully and artistically interwoven with some other person's production filled me with mingled emotions chief of which was per haps an inclination to accept, through the belligerent member of the family the invitation containad in another column, to "lick tho editor." But on reading the article a second time, it seemed so funny that the sudden hope took possession of me that I might be considered a second Bill Nye or Artemus ward. At any rate the article has furnished to "a limited number" as much amusement as one of BillNye's best. I sincerely hope the editor saw the original production before it was cut up into cruzy patchwork. If he did not, he mnst suppose his contributor to be very ecentric or extremely car.eless.

It is reported that Mr. Blake, living northwest of Wesley and his hired man, Albert Bacon, are both sick. There was a light frost last night and at seven, o'clock this morning the mercury stood only eight degrees above freezing, It is thought that the frost was not heavy enough to do any serious damage.

Wheeler's, returned to her home in Decorah. Miss Daisy Reibhoff expects to attend school this fall at the home school which commences about Sept. 1st. The past few weeks with the extremely warm weather has caused nroch sickness, however, as far as we can learn they are all improving. Every one with bis wife and children or best girl attended the show. It seems as though the gambling part should be done away with. It can not be called a good show with that attachment to it. Word has been received from Gertie Wheeler who is in N. Dakota visiting her sister, Mrs Chas, Stuyvesant, that she arrived safely and' Found the country much more thickly settled than she expected, but still these is no place like home.
