Don't you take anybody's word for it, but when yon'are in Burt just drop into Jnb. Goeder's store and see for yourself how much of his old stock that he has had on hand in Algona"for fifteen years" . I believe someone says be has sent up i here to work off ou the intelligent people of Burt and the surrounding country. Mr. Eddie delivered alectun; last Monday evening on his personal experience and travels through the Rockies iu I860. The lecture was well attended considering the rough roads. The proceeds go toward procuring a new bell for the M, E. church at Buffalo Fork. He will give the same lecture for the same pur pose in Bancroft and Algona in the near future, go and hear him it is a good one. The heavy wind of last Thursday blew B, E. Alger's new barn that he was just building almost to kindling wood. He said it just twisted off every studding there was in the barn and be barely escaped being badly hurt himself. He had a bin of outs in one corner of the barn and the wind strung them out so thin on the ground that it will be hard to save auy of them. But he succeeded in getting out his horses and cows before the wind took the barn. This is a pretty heavy loss for Mr. Alger. We also notice that F. Nicholson's windmill has descended from Us high tower. By tbe way,there -was considerable damage done hern in lown. The telegraph sign was twisted from its place and did some big tumb ling before the agent could capture it. A, A, Beane, A, M,, M, D, Office and residence one door west of OFFICE. THE COUNTY. NEWS.

Manufsctortrt of Flno Fwnlly Stwlsg Machines. Has a full stock of General Furniture and is now ready to nccoinmo- dute tUe puoplc of Ledyard A crazy social is advertised for Tuesday eve of this week at the Trimble house, which we are not able to report at this writing, but from the fact that the good ladies of tbe town are at the bottom of it we predict a good success. Rev. Williams of Bancroft preached an interesting and effective sermon at this place Sunday evening to a crowded house. This is his lira; service here. We think that we voice the general sentiment in saying that any luture service will be highly appreciated. People all around us are beginning to open their eyes to the fact that they can buy general merchandise, hardware, ready-made clothing, boots aud shoes, hats , caps, machinery and furniture just as cheap in Ledyard as you can in any town in Kossuth county. Cal Ordway has struck a new competitor in the house-moving business. He will have to rustle to move a building the distance that Mr. Clow's house was moved the other day in tht same length of time, and then if he does it as cheap we are afraid he will soou be wanting to quit the business. Several emigrants have unloaded here the past week. Among them John Zacu ery, who will live in town, Mr. Havland, brother in-law of F. O. Quist, who will move onto a farm of Grannis Palmers', and a number bound for Winnebago county about sixteen miles cast. The windstorm of \Veduesday last did considerable damage in this vicinity. C. Dunlap & Go's, implement house came near being a wreck but was saved by be ing propped up. A barn on the farm of G. & P., to be occupied by M. Havland, was thoroughly damaged, also the barn recently built by Mr. Clow in our village. Reports come from the farmers of a like nature. One farmer from near Ramsay was in town Friday and said he had seeu three or four windmills on tbe road that had blown down. Jas. Warburturn re 1 ports that his corn crib was moved 60 or 80 rods by the wind, being turned over and over like a tumbling weed. Scott Wickbam says bis hay racks were taken by the wind and hung up in the trees. >- tH* 4 LOST: Between Ledyard and J. H. Jacob's place, A tumbling rod to horse power of well machine.
