Oats and other small grain erops on well-drained fields are loing very well, but in low lands they are generally drowned out.

Eagle Grove Gazette: John Heckart of Algona, came down Monday to spend a few days with his children and grandchildren, J. C. Heckart and family.

Th* ladies of the Congregational church desire to express their thanks to all those who so kindly assisted in wagon Kuhn. from all trains. Customers may leave orders at the Adams Express offioe. Longley is a hustler and deserves success. Pocahontas Centre is some miles off of the railroad and the wagon roads and fields have been absolutely impassable for some time. It is said that the supply of fuel has been exhausted and the people have commenced to burn up the sidewalks and have also run low fences. Provisions and flour is being the people from success of the convention in the matter of entertaining tne audience by impersonating an Irish delegate from Em- mettsburg, Iowa, Thursday night and a Swede delegate from "Minesotah" Friday evening. As delegate from Minnesota he placed in nomination Cnute Nelson, a Swede farmer of Minnesota. The speech was made in perfect imitation of Swede English, and was full of witticisms that brought down the house. Mr. Ryan is a democrat, but he proved a very acceptable republican for the time being. Livermore Gazette: Not a pound of coal can be bought, borrowed, begged or stolen in. the town of Pocahontas Centre. A coal famine that has been in'progress there for several weeks has reached its culmination in the absolute exhaustion of the supply. Cordwood, too, is a scarce article and fences, sidewalks and sheds-all over town are suffering. The cause of the famine is to be found in the isolated condition of the town, and the unprecedentedly bad roads the past month. Pocahontas Centre is the only county seat in Iowa without a railway. No railway stations are within fifteen miles of the town, and coal mines are equally remote.

Since April 1st rains have been so frequent that the roads have been in such condition that it has been impossible to haul any freight. During the early days of the famine the dealers, supply of coal was exhausted, and those whose supply was short borrowed of their more lucky neighbors. The natural result was that the entire supply in the town was eventully exhausted and a campaign for wood began. The wood, too, finally played out and now anything that will burn is used for fuel. The roads are still impassably muddy and the famine bids fair to continue.
