T1IK IIKPIJHLJCAN, ALGONA, IOWA. MAV25, Burt Republican. " BURT. 10WA, MAV 25. 1892. Harry Dakell was dpin£ business in the "hub" Friday. \ Mrs. Long, daughter of pv. ForsytUe, is,quite low with the measles. . Weddings have been quite plenty late ]y, but "mcthinks there arc more to follow." There are several applications in for the primary department of OUT school, and among them are some good ones. "Bbave off your Whiskers" IB the latest Btylenow. Our barber ban had a flourishing business in whisker cutting lately. We only wonder who will be "next." Miss Nellie Salisbury spent Saturday among friends in Burt, and returned to her school at Bancroft to begin wotk Monday. The Presbyterian Ladies' Mite Society will hold a business meeting next Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock at the home of Mrs. Henry McDouald. A full attendance is desired as there is special business. Among those who attended the Gold Medal Contest at Algona Friday were Rev. Chamberlin, Jas. Stow, A. A. Sifert, Gfeo. and Cora Paine, Everett McDonald, Abbie Goodwin and L. Hodgson. Our people pronounced the contest good, but their sympathies were with Miss Barslou. The third quarterly meeting for Burt charge will be held at the Grange School bouse. There will be a meeting of the Bub-district Mission Conference on Sabbath. The Tabernacle part of the meeting will be dispensed with until further notice.—J. W. FORSYTHE. • These few days of dry weather have been improved by our farmers. We heard Thomas Hanna say that he expects a good crop of corn this season, and he has never known Kossutb county to have a failure in crops, by either draught or wet weather. Mr. Stewart, of northeast Ramsay, shipped over 200 head of cattle to Ledyard, Monday to take upon his herd ground. We are informed that he has over 4,000 cattle to herd this season. This means a ' good deal of work for herders, and a crowding of cattle upon a small territory, if true. Married, Beard-Warner.—Geo. Beard and Miss Fannie Warnor, both of Burt, were quietly married last Saturday. Mr. Beard is in the employ of our popular blacksmith, Wm. Shaeffer, and has fair prospects iu life. Miss Warner is a daughter of Jno. Warner, of Greenwood, one of Eossiith's prosperous farmers. The youug couple have the best wishes of the community. Among the events of last week we record the marriage of W. J. Easterly, of Burt, and Miss Ethel McCormack, at the home of the bride's parents in Algona. The ceremony was performed by Esquire Taylor and was witnessed by the friends of the bride and groom only. They took the evening train for Hay Springs, Neb., where Will holds down a position as telegraph operator for M. V. & F. V. R'y Co. It is well known that lie is considered a C. & N. W. man, and will have a station as soon as he gains his majority, which he is lacking but a few months. The many friends of this young couple wish them a very pleasant future.

Butts' windmill was blown down in last Wednesday's Rale. C. E. Oleson returned Wednesday from a long visit to lona and Calmer. Mrs. W. M. Colby and her daughter Mabel visited in Algona last Saturday and Sunday. Arthur McCormack of Primgar visited his father in Wesley and attended his sister's wedding in Algona last week. (Some farmers have commenced plowing their corn ground, though by far the greater number must wail several days yet before their ground will bo dry enough to plow and plant. Wesley is about to lose one of her young and active citizens. F. C. Cory has accepted the position of general agent for the Singer Sewing Machine Co. His future home will bo Algona. Our farmers are doing a great deal of their own shipping of late. Brewster Bios, shipped two car loads of fat cattle and one of hogs last week, of their own raising. Richard Gray of Marion S. D., made Wesley one of his flying visits last week. He says the heavy rains of this spring are an advantage to S. Dakota and the farmers are expecting large crops this year. Nearly everybody and everything that comes to town now must waltc, even the fat hogs, as it is impossible to haul a heavy load over any of the roads. If we were only blessed with numerous gravel pits, what an improvement we should see in the roads the coming summer.

Ladies, do you realize tliat when you buy of the retailer, you are paying three unnecessary profits'.' The manufacturer sells to the commission house, the latter to the jobber, and the jobber in turn sells to the retail merchant. You 'must pay the manufacturer a profit llrst, and then pay each of the subsequent handlers a profit, not infrequently paying two profits to tlio retailer. The Manufacturers' Commission Co. is a responsible syndicate which sells direct to the consumer. By investing in manufacturers' satnples.odds and ends, job-lois, and the stocks of insolvent manufacturers, in connection with our regular commission holdings, we are able to sell to the consumer direct at the oommtssion price, which is but ono remove from the manufacturer's. While this company handles all kinds of la- die's furnishings, we are making a special drive on our liotiiery, merely to introduce our name in your territory and establish a reputation for giving values never before ottered, so that you will be fully prepared for our later announcement of our entire Hues, liead the following offers: Ladles'full length, fashioned, fast black hose. superfine gauge, (retailing everywhere at 25to 35 cents pei 1 pair) we will sell at liic, or oue- lialf dozen at flee.

Orders must be accompanied by cash, in either money order, postal note, stamps or registered letter, addressed to the, Manufacturer's Commission Co , i>2l Filth Avenue, 31-38 Chicago, 111. Frank Heiuer has just received* dandy dray wagon. James Beam's family arrived the middle of last week. Dr. Jacobs, of Elmore, was in town one day last week. Supt. Reed visited our village school last Thursday. T. L. Auld has moved into his new house in the east part of town. Miss Mary Grannis is absent on a visit at her home at Mankato, Minn. Guy Bartholomew spent Sunday at hi* eld home at Blue Earth City, Minn. Tanner & McLaury have been building an addition on the rear of their restaurant. The boys from Elmore were sporting their wheels on our streets the other day. Kendall & Grannis' store building looks very much improved with a new awning. Carl Nelson was in town Monday making preparations for celebrating his 21st birthday. E. V. Poster moved his stock of dry goods and groceries, together with his household goods, from Elmore last week. Dr. Dunlap, brother of A. J. and B. Dunlap, of this place, has decided to locate here with the purpose of practicing medicine. Dan. Dobson has secured the services of a Mr. Curtis, a good workman. This will help him out some. He has been fairly overdriven with work for some weeks past. The rainy weather continues, and the roads are becoming almost impassable. We will not complain, however, as we are informed they are much worse iu other localities. Married: At the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Johnson, three miles north of Ledyard, on the 17th inst., Mr. A. B. Dunlap, of this place, and Miss Matie Beard, of Revere, Mo. Rev. Brown, of Blue Earth City, tied the knot. We had the faintest idea of the population of our little town till the band boys called them out on Saturday evening. The streets were fairly thronged with people, and when the band ceased playing it was necessary to call out the "police force" to clear the sidewalks. The band boys were out on the streets last Saturday eveniug. The band has been organized but a short time, and is entitled to much credit. Other parties expect to join the ranks soon and we will soon have a band that we may well be proud of. Trade is steadily moving Ledyard-ward. Parties from Winnebago Co. were in town last week and declare their intentions of making this their trading post. The Swea trade is also steadily increasing. Last Saturday the streets were lined with teams nearly all day, and business was rushing. The Bazaar held at the Wiemer Bros.' bank building on the 17th inst., by the ladies of Ledyard and vicinity, was simply an immense success, notwithstanding the very unfavorable condition of the weather. Supper was served, also ice cream and lemonade. The center of interest was the stock of things useful and ornamental, displayed for sale in the front part of the building, which it would be useless to attempt to name or describe. All that womanly ingenuity cc^uld fashion or woman's mind conceive of, was there, and offered to the highest bidder by Auctioneers Ordway and Fitzpatrick. The people responded liberally and a handsome sum of money was raised, which is to be devoted to the M. E. church building fund. Kendall Foi Sale by Grannis. F. A.
