Budlong has sold his farm and will remove to town in the near future. Water works and street lamps are what Bancroft needs, wants, and must have. Herman Shalt/, of Grundy Center is visiting at T. II.

Tallrnaii got back from her visit with her parents in Lodi, "\Vis., Friday morning last. Boys, James Whalen has something of interest to say to you in our advertising columns this week.

Mallory & Holms have something of great interest to tell every one this week. You will do well to look up their ad in this issue. Hans Nelson's family are happy over the arrival of a girl baby on Feb. 29. This young lady will only have one birthday every four years. Louis Peterson, south of town, Avill move to Ledyard and Christ Godfrey- son of Ledyard will farm the place made vacant by the former. What do you think of our society directory? There is not a town of 1000 inhabitants in Iowa that can show live such prosperous secret societies. Mrs. Lida Bardwell who has been visiting at Jas.' Gallioas and Mrs. Benj. Smiths' for some time returned home to Omaha last week Monday. Nick Arend and Carl Ostrander have swung out a beautiful new sign to the breeze to let all the people know the place and nature of their business. A pleasant surprise party was held at Christ Nelson's, southeast of town, a week ago tonight. It was a surprise party for one of Mr. N's little girls. B. C. Lindburg was at Ledyard last Saturday moving a building and this week he is laying the foundation and building the vault for the new bank. Mrs. Frank Snyder, of Carroll Co., is hero visiting the family of F. M. Evans at present. Her people expect to move to Kossuth in the near future. Henry Simpkins made his periodical pilgrimage to the hub last Saturday. By the way, the readers of the NEAVS may expect to see one of his big adds in til is paper soon. B. F. Wickwire's usually smiling face was more than ordinarily lighted up by the arrival of a young lady in his family on Saturday last. The republican babies are all girls. When a (coon) expects to capture Bancroft or even a few of its small boys he had better get his silken tile insured and mind his off eye, because, as the saying goes, he mighfget left." We have heard people ask what the politics of the NEWS was, and we will say right here that we find so much news that politics fails to interest us. The NEWS is working for Bancroft and not for the republican nor the democratic parties. I. O. of G. T. program for Saturday evening, March 12.

There will be a caucus of the lie- publican voters of Greenwood township tomorrow at 3 o'clock to select delegates to the Republinan county convention which selects delegates to the State convention which in turn selects the delegates from, tlie congressional districts to toe National Bepublj- can Convention jp June, wjtuejj THE BOYS GOT LOOSE And Knocked Out The Old Fellows. Tho Young • Men Capture the Plums at the City Election. Fire Works and General Ratification- Bancroft's first 1 exciting city election was held hist Monday. It seems that the younger portion of Bancroft's voters got it into their heads that the "old cocks," as they chose to call them, nad always taken more than their share of the offices and consequently they had a saucus, or rather a series of caucusses, in which they organized to put in a young men's council. As the older men found this out they also put in nomination for the council the same aged men that had heretofore been nominated and electod. This was the last straw that broke the camel's back, and on Monday morning at 8 o'clock the boys might be seen anywhere in town working like beavers. Towards night they felt sure that at least nearly all of the ticket was elected, but when the votes were counted and a complete victory perched on the banners of the boys, there was heard the sound of the tocsin in the land, and almost immediately an impromptu band with the tin and vocal accompaniments was formed and marched first around the Eichmond block, then down Portland street as far as Jas. G-allion's. then back and around the State Bank block down through State street. Fireworks were shot off and a general ratification held. The winning candidates all passed out tlie cigars aw the boys filed past, and while there was plenty of noise everything passed off pleasantly and many ladies were seen watching the procession as it passed. Young America is hard to beat. Following is the vote: No. cast 185. For Mayor — J. B.Johuson 185. Recorder— C. C. Thompson 123, F. R-. Andrews 61. Assessor— B. F. Crose 185. Councilmen 3 years— J. S. Ilofius 118, C. E. McLanghlin 112, E. I. Brayton 70, B. F. Wickwire 64. Councilmen 1 year—I. J. Bruer 185. A. Sundstrum 120 B. C. Lindburg 67. Street Commissioner— Jas. Gallion 185. Treasurer — J. A. Campbell 120, C. li. Moorehouse 59. There is another election next Monday when four school directors will be elected, but who knows what five days may bring forth in so live a town as this? We want you to read this and put it down in your vest pocket and when you are in need of anything in* onr line come right to tlie Bancroft Tea and Spice Co, We have just added to our Stock a full line of Mrs. G. W. Gardner held a public sale of some stock in town last Saturday. Wm. Delaney moved into the house made vacated by John Wood last Monday. Chicken Pie Social at the Baptist church next Friday night. Come everybody. C. H. Koeble returned from his visit to his home in Winnebago City one day last week. T. II. Conner and D. A. Haggard took in the city election ratification last Monday evening. Miss Nellie Salisbury, our efficient Assistant Principal, was at Algona on business last Saturday. Lenten devotions will be held at the Catholic church each Friday morning at 10 o'clock during.Lent. R. E. Davison has added as an improvement to the town a new sidewalk in front of his residence. When men will not keep the peace the Mayor does right in imposing a good sized fine. That's our opinion. Mrs. J. II. Grover of Portland was up visiting her sick sister, Mrs. E. S. Streater, last Friday and Saturday. A surprise dance took place at C. II. Ilables' in Fenton last week. Mr. and Mrs. liable Sr. were presented a fine spring rocker. Jno. Roe, of Corning, Iowa, went to Omaha last week to visit relatives. lie has also been visiting friends in Bancroft lately. The shadow social was a grand success, it having netted $26 to the Good Templars. One young lady's shadow sold as high as $2. Come lets have another. AUCTION SALT:.
