Bancroft has the largest lodge in the district. A number of young people living southeast of town assembled at David Nichols for a party in honor of Warren Evans last Friday night and with games, conversation, singing, etc., and an oyster supper they had a pleasant time until it was pretty late and went home feeling that they had had a good time. DlEt>. On the night of Janfiaty 28, at 11 p. m., Wm. Ringsdorf, 8i%* aged 65 years. Mr. Ringsdorf was a native of Nassau, Germany. Born Oct. 7, 1836, he came to America at the age Of 18, living a short time 'in New York, afterwards in Wisconsin and finally in Iowa. He came to Kossuth county in 1868 and passed through all the hardships of those early years which our old settlers ternr the "grasshopper times." But his indominable energy and perseverance, coupled with a sound judgment which became a sort of proverb among his neighbors carried him over every difficulty. He was one of tbe best fanners in the county. He was married in 1858 to Miss Elizabeth Bufmeir. There were born to them six children of whom five are now living. It was one of the comforts of his last hour that the wife who had so faithfully seconded the labors of his life will be dependent on no one. And to her it is no small consolation that her husband left his home fully trusting that .a higher and better one awaited him. Of his happy domestic life there is needed no fuller testimony than the profound grief df his family, while the rectitude of his actions in business affairs is too well known to need comment. The whole character of his quiet, unpretentious life is well summed in these lines. Far from the madding crowd's Ignoble strife, His sober wishes never learned to stray ; Along the cool, sequested vale of life He kept the noiseless tenor of his way. The funeral services were held in the M. E. church yesterday at 11 o'clock, Rev. Luce officiating. School was closed that the scholars might attend and the church was filled to overflowing. The body was taken to Portland for interment where other members of his family are at rest. x Beware of Ointments for Catarrh that contain Mercury, as mercury will surely destroy the sense of smell and completely derange the whole svstem when entering it through the mucous surfaces. Sucli articles should never be used except on prescriptions from reputable physicians, as the damage they will do is ten fold to the good you can possibly deriye from them. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co.,Toledo, 0., contains no mercury, and is taken internally, and acts directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. In buying Hall' Catarrh Cure be sure you get the genuine. It is taken internally, and made in Toledo, Ohio, F. J. Cheney & Co. BSF'Sold by Druggists, price 75c. per bottle.

She was taken sick three years ago and has never entirely recovered. The funeral was held in the Coffin school house last Sabbath at 2 o'clock, and the services were conducted by Bev. Williams of this place. Oscar Swanson, a son of John Swanson south of town, and a well known Bancroft boy, was killed in a railroad wreck between Afton and Creston last Friday morning. He was making only his second run as an engineer after being promoted from fireman. It seems that the train ahead of bis had a broken truck which had torn up the track and consequently his engine ran off the track and rolled over and crushed him when one of the pipes broke deluging him with water and scalding him nearly all over. He was dug out from under the wreck with difficulty. His parents were telegraphed of his death when they sent for the body and Chas. B. Falk, an old friend, happened to come to the scene and volunteered to take home the body which he did last Saturday. Oscar was a very bright energetic and well respected young man and to show their esteem over fifty teams and people followed the body to the cemetery. The parents have the warmest sympathy of the whole community. Bev. Luce conducted the funeral services at the residence last Sunday afternoon. I'UBIIC SALE.
