J. W. Case stopped off at Bancroft last Thursday as he was passing this way as traveling agent for a publishing house in Minneapolis. His many friends were glad to see him again. Orval and Marion Ostrander have have been pretty sick with the measles and Miss Minnie Sorenson has also been a sufferer from the same disease. Pretty hard to have three sick in a house at oue time.

Married, on Tuesday evening, April 5,1892, at the M. E. parsonatre in Bancroft, Rev. A. W. Luce officiating, Mr. James O. Barge, of Kossuth Co., and Mrs. Alice Shimer, of Buchanan Co., Iowa. The groom is one of our industrious and thrifty young farmers, and though the bride is a stranger in Kossuth county we doubt not Mr. Barge has made a wise choice. May their life be long and happy. Died, on Tuesday, March 29,1392, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Roberts, Mrs. Caroline Nelson, nee Powers, aged 54 years 11 months and 14 days. She was born in Illinois but for some years had lived at Bellville, Kansas, and at the time of her death was visiting with her daughter, Mrs. Roberts. She had been a member of the M. E. church for about seventeen years, and was a faithful Christian and has gone to her reward. The funeral was conducted by Rev. Luce at the home of her daughter and the remains were laid to rest in the Bancroft cemetery. District Meeting Good Templars. The Good Templars, Mass meeting held at Goldfield last week Tuesday and Wednesday was a grand success. The contest on Tuesday evening for a gold medal drew a large audience and the speaking was very fine., When the referee footed up the totals on the marking papers of the judges be found a tie detween Miss Flossie Gates of Clarion, and Jessie Higbee of Eagle Grove, but the medal was awarded to the lady. Owing to a misunderstanding Bancroft was not represented in the contest. The receipts for the contest were something like $48, clear of expense. On the following morning the regular program began and it waa found that 17 lodges were represented at the meeting besides Perry Perkins, Grand Secretary of Iowa, and Mrs. E. M. Remington Grand Superintendent of Juvenile Temples. At the Bancroft meating only eight lodges were represented and there were only nine lodges in the district and one in Kossuth county (at Bancroft) but at this meeting it was found that there were 24 lodges in good standing and five of them in Kossuth county. This onward movement is much due to the efficient work of Mrs. Anna Harris the district lecturer. The district lodge is also in good shape financially. Let the good work go on, especially in this Banner lodge at Bancroft and in the Banner county of the District, Kossuth. Win. Musspn, Prop.

B'y. Take advantage of this opportunity to secure some of the best land ever offered We could not resist the temptation to stop of at Lu Verne last Thursday on our way home from the Goldfield meeting. We found that the little city had more than doubled since our last visit and had a thriving business and a large number of new merchants and building, we found G. W- Hanna at the old stand in the bank and he pronounced everything prosperous. J. C. Raymond was found busy among his law books and papers although he is a man who is pever too busy to speak to any person, Charley Lichty was out of temper because he had too much business and the smiling phiz of Ike Harrison loomed up behind the boxes of the post office. D. Ramm we found was suffering a great bereavement in the loss of his wife and child which was certainly a hard blow and Ramm deserved better fortune. We also found that our old schoolmate and friend Wm. Godfrey had launched out on the matrimonial ocean and he gave us some good advice. We tried in vain to find the poetic muse, Flatt but utterly failed as he was away and therefore we had to leave the city without coming into contact with that divine afflatus which is supposed to surround Bro. Platt. If you want your Farm Loan renewed, or want to get a deed—see me. I can save you money. A limited amount of money to loan on 30, 60 or 90 day's time.
