James took a trip to Chicago, each with two loads of fat stock, last week. Now is the time our citizens think of side-walks and good roads. The roads are almost impassable now. Will Easterly is home visiting for a short time. Will has become one of the rustlers in the operators profession. Will Wilde made a standing jump one evening last week of 11 feet and eight inches. Can Algona beat that record? Burt now boasts of three mails per day. A mail pouch has been put on tho morning accommodation for Burt. So Burt now has as good mail accommodations as any town along the line. Burt has two lady teachers who show good pluck and endurance; one walks over two miles south to and from her school, and the other over three miles north. The names of the plucky school maams are Minnie Shadle and Abbey Goodwin. The plans and specifications for the new school house have been received and notices for bids will soon be out. The building is to be 30x60 feet, two stories high, thus giving a fine building. The plans were drawn by George Bliss of Bancroft, who is only eighteen years old. The following officers were installed last Friday evening in the Good Temp- lars lodge. C. T., WillDehnart; P. C. T., A. A. Sifert;V. T., Miss Ella Hopkins; M., S. M. Ferris; Chap., J. N.

Hereafter we will receive pouch mall from DesMoines, Eagle Grove and Hay- warden on morning accomodation north this enables us to send pouch mail on evening freight south also. Patrons will do well to note above facts as a late letter for the mail trains will be pouched at five o'clock p. m. will arrive at almost any point several hours earlier, fncluding Bancroft and Algona than to hold in office for way mail train. ,T.
