If the NEWS looks ring streaked and speckled this week, remember that we have been learning to ride and be ridden by a bicycle. It seems to be a general opinion in these parts that the man who caused a runaway at the Fair should be permanently ruled off the track. Mrs. A. Sundstrom and daughters Laura and Lillie and MissEva, Anderson of Swea, went to Vasa, Minn., to visit relatives and friends at their old home. Count Hobert of Plum Creek and the Little Giant of Algona are having quite a tilt in the Kossuth county tourney but then that is what makes Barslou's potatoes grow. 11.

Married—At the residence of J. G. Graham by Squire G. O. Austin on Wednesday evening last, Mr. Chas. Pettibone and Miss Anna Heck. The groom is one of Bancroft's industrious young men and the bride a daughter of one of Kossutlfs most prosperous farmers and the NEWS hastens to offer congratulations. C. L. Ostrander will open up a new harness shop in Burt some time in the future. He expects to put in a first class stock and a first class workman besides himself, and we venture the prediction that he will run a shop that the people of Hurt and vicinity will patroni/e very liberally.
