Hill, who sold her farm in BDOIIB township a few months ago, has concluded to mnke her permanent home in Wesley. She has bought a half block in Park addition and it is said she will build a residence thereon before winter sets in. The Wesley rally last Tuesday evening was a grand success. Mr. Van Houten's speech, the chief feature of the occasion, is spokpn of as one of more than ordinary merit. The people from Algona and Britt added interest to the occasion, and the bands and glee club furnished excellent and appropriate music. It is rumored that W. P. Giddings living northwest of Wesley is about to leave the farm and move in towu. Mr. Giddings is an old settler. Coming to Wesley township in 1870 he has lived and labored here ever since. Should Mr. Giddings and his excellent wife become citizens of our town they will be most cordially welcomed. The young ladies showed their interest in the campaign by trimming their hats in corn tassels and corn in various shapes, wearing corn necklaces etc. They "lent their ears" to the speaker in more sense than one, as it was noticed they waved those from the cornfield by way of applause, with silk of the national colors streaming from the end. The gentlemen wore the usual corn badge and carried their cornstalks most gracefully SCHOOL REPORT. Grammar department—Number enrolled, 43.

The Phenomenal Success Acbievad by this Firm is to bo attributed to: 1st—The utmost care that is given in selecting and buying none -but the best of materials. 2d—The best of workmanship in all their branches. 3d—By the combination and practical use of the most important improvements made. In this manner wo effect the most obtainable result in regard to quality and durability. Our instruments have a rich volume of tone, pure and of long sustaining, singing quality. Our cases are double veneered inside and outside, thus avoiding the checking iind warping. Our key bottoms are framed together like a door, and therefore Abound to keep straight. Our patent music rack is the plainest ami yet most serviceable in existence Our patent fall board is a novelty and of the most practical usefulness. The patent repeating action is highly appreciated by expert players, as well as by scholars. The patent tuning pin fastening, only used in our pianos, is the most important improvement ever invented; the tuning pin being inserted only in the full iron frame thus lessening the liability of stretching and loosing of the springs, so commonly found in pianos with wooden wrest planks. We challenge the world that our piano will stand longer in tune than any other made in the ordinary way. Special prices to introduce these pianos where we have no agent. Good agents wanted.
